Hi[edit source]

Just thought I'd stop by and introduce myself as the newest admin since you stopped editing for awhile before I joined this wiki. Andrew talk 01:33, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Depends on what time of day it is. I issued about 5 blocks in about 5 minutes yesterday evening but sometimes there are periods that can last hours where there is very little if any vandalism at all. Andrew talk 03:02, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
By the way, I fixed your archive link so appears as "Archive 1" instead of "/Archive 1". Hope you don't mind. Andrew talk 03:05, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
Leave it to me to always show up after a conversation is over, I'd just like to say it's nice to see an old editor around after the massive drop off of veterans. It isn't often that we see someone from the times of shadowdancer here.-- 03:27, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
Shadow's the symbol for a bad admin 'round here. I'm not too sure if the new guys know much about him now a days, but certainly most admins and well respected users use him as a sort of euphemism (especially for RfA's).-- 03:45, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
RuneScape:Administrators A good page of reference for who our current (and two former) admins are.-- 03:51, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

O.O. Couchpotato99!! You're like one of the oldest editors ever!! I read all the RfAs months ago and when I saw your RfA , I was like "This guy knows his stuff." (Monk's robes and crossbow) You totally didn't deserve to get blocked (even for a while)!! Heh, you probably have no idea who I am though. C.ChiamTalk 03:54, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Yes it's always a shame when a sysop has difficulty using the tools responsibly, we've had two admin reviews in the last few months alone. Many things are different from your time here, we've expanded to over 10k articles, attracted trolls, been attacked by vandal bots on at least one occasion, been forced to block established users who've believed themselves to be above the rules, and have had many new editors join. (The largest expansion was in '07, wiki editors came by the truck load and seem to make up the majority of active admins now a days.) As you can see, the wiki's been quite busy for the last two years.-- 04:05, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
Heh, indeed you did. Well, I'll be sleeping now considering it's 11:38 in New England, it was nice speaking with you, always good to see members of the wiki's older editing generation come back every now and then.-- 04:38, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the story. ^_^ Andrew talk 13:07, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Are you just officially coming back or are you just periodically visiting the wiki? I wanted to know so I could update the admin page. --Rollback crown.svg Spencer (Talk | Edits | Contribs) 01:17, 27 January 2009 (UTC)
Well, periodically or not, I'm glad you are still editing here. :) --Rollback crown.svg Spencer (Talk | Edits | Contribs) 01:22, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

Status[edit source]

Silly me, I forgot yesterday to ask whether you wish to remain listed as "inactive" or be relisted as "active" on the administrators page.--

Ugh, ignore that, everyone seems to be beating me at posting today...-- 01:23, 27 January 2009 (UTC)
He he, sorry 'bout that. --Rollback crown.svg Spencer (Talk | Edits | Contribs) 01:29, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

Re:Interesting[edit source]

Hmm, that is quite interesting. In a situation such as this I'd ask a staff member for a checkuser. If both accounts are found to be linked, then block KrazyHits2 indefinitely (as it would be a sockpuppet) and give a ban to Krazy Owns U for abusing multiple accounts and editing userpages. Basically, request a checkuser from staff and wait for the results before taking action.--

Indeed it is quite odd, since he's not doing any damage right now I'd just keep an eye on him. Not sure why you can't edit sections on my talk, though I'd like to know why I can't access the wiki logged in right now...--Azaz129 02:34, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

Signature guidelines[edit source]

Your signature[edit source]

Information icon.svg

Hello, Couchpotato99. It seems that your signature is improperly set up. According to our signature policy, all signatures must make use of the Template:Signatures page or a subpage of your userpage. What you can do:

  • Visit the signature policy page and read the instructions on how to properly set up a signature.
  • I also recommend going back over any talk pages you have signed and replacing the raw signature code after your edits with {{Signatures/Couchpotato99}} (or a subpage of your userpage), in order to reduce each page's space and thus loading time.

Thank you for your cooperation in this matter. --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 20:48, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
