A Warning

This message has been copied from Talk:Living with Girls

Actually, I removed your edits because they contained notes that were not note-worthy, were unencyclopedic, treated speculation as fact, and were riddled with bad grammar. Submissions to this, or any wiki need to follow those guidelines in order to be permitted on the pages. This is not me being a "dictator," but an enforcer of the rules of this site. And blatantly badmouthing me, or any user for that matter, is also against our rules (See LGPedia:No Personal Attacks) and will not be tolerated. Consider this your warning. Any future behavior of this sort can and will result in consequences. --Zoey 02:48, 20 September 2007 (CDT)

first, noting that daniel has been lying to his gf and that his gf has no idea what is going on is way more important than your club. second, my notes were not 'riddled with bad grammar' lastly, i am not personally attacking you. i'm calling you out on being a jerk. i didn't call you a dictator. i didn't badmouth you either. i observed you deleted my comments while they were more relevant than yours. you could have done the right thing and just edited them to your encyclopedic liking. but whatever. go ahead and be petty. platy sep 20

In Zoey's defense (and I've not loved her editing at times as well) you did call her a dictator. Nancypants

i said she was not a dictator ;-p but none the less... damn i wish i was an admin because then i'd just slap warnings on people whenever they disagreed with me. it would be great! - platy sep 20
LoL touché Nancypants
"you are the admin of this forum but you are not the owner and dictator!" - by saying this you clearly accused Zoey of behaving like an owner and a dictator rather than like an Admin. Yet, it is precisely because Zoey does not slap warnings on everyone who disagrees that makes her a good Admin. So what's the big deal even if you did call her names? Why are we all so touchy? You were only frustrated by the deletion of the note and wanted an explanation, right? Well actually it is a big deal and you're getting off rather lightly and I have tried to explain this below...

i'll admit i've been totally pwned in the name calling department. i continue to disagree with whatever reason zoey had in repeatedly deleting my notes. i got the impression she had some e-vendetta or something. somebody else came along and polished my note and that was fine. great. really. i like it now. but the deleting? it was just like a passive 'stfu' to me and i felt that was unprofessional and had to be called out. but whatever. lesson learned? don't get on lgpedia when you're too tired or too drunk to properly communicate your thoughts. - platy sep 21 2:37am pt


First of all, welcome to LGPedia.

  • I know you have been around since March and have been contributing notes and making comments on the video talk pages.
  • I remember it was your comment on Talk:No_Trespassing#Sexual_tension that led to creation of the great Relationships page (but only after Zoey promptly did something about your suggestion).
  • I know you started off the Sunglasses and Inebriated pages.

So thanks for sticking around and I hope you continue to do so.


Some of your notes have had to be edited and/or removed in the past. So, here is some advice on Notes:

  • All of us have our Notes mercilessly edited and critiqued by others. That's life on a wiki. Accept it.
  • Just because a note is removed without explanation, it does not mean it cannot be re-added in a better form. Sometimes an Admin has time to redo a note into a better format and sometimes it is tidier just to remove it and wait for a user to either re-add a better one or start a discussion on the talk page. We are not being petty or personal, just keeping things neat.
  • You admit to being a bad speller on your user page and I'm afraid that affects what other users think of your notes. However, if you take a little more care then most users will be happy to tidy up your note further if it is relevant.
  • On Living with Girls, Zoey removed your first note as it was not substantial. Your second note was much better and she left it alone. Modelmotion tidied up your note and it still remains on the article having had a few more edits along the way. This is normal. No reason to get upset.
  • If you need to start a discussion on a talk page regarding a proposed, current or former edit to an article, do so politely and respectfully. Humour is fine, insults are not.

Final Advice

Finally, I do have to say you should acknowledge that the Admins are being lenient here and only because we remember your better edits and we don't want to put you off entirely. But let us not forget:

  • You have a history of rash comments directed at Zoey in particular. I'm thinking of Neutrogena/Talk:Neutrogena and of course above and on Talk:Living with Girls. It is not nice being called a dork for merely reading history pages as part of your Admin duties, or even being labelled a jerk, an egotist, petty, full of oneself, acting like a dictator etc. (Looks bad when you read them all next to each other... think how Zoey feels).
  • Are we being "touchy" or too defensive? We certainly have every right to be. As Admins we are high profile targets and bear the brunt of insults from the tiny minority of reckless users and vandals who occasionally turn up on LGPedia. Zoey in particular had some pretty awful comments directed at her a week or so ago that I managed to wipe before she read (I hope). That one led to an instant, infinite ban. Even Admins long since retired still get regularly insulted, so bear that in mind before accusing us of being touchy egotists. If anything, we try to overcompensate by encouraging more discussion and consensus to get the best decisions.

Well, I hope that was useful for you and please try not to dig yourself deeper into a hole! I thought you deserved a full and detailed explanation for the warning and some advice on how to avoid future problems. I also hope other LGPedia users who come across this page might get some extra insight beyond the standard guidelines. Psmith 18:46, 20 September 2007 (CDT)

Impending ban (by renegade)

Although I could probably, given the preceeding warnings and the evident previous rollbacks, consider your edits willful spam and thus have you fall within the scope of my extended powers, I will leave you to the real moderators for now and have them decide what to do.

However, should you not wish to be banned, I strongly suggest reading both the history as well as the talk page of Mexican Mating Machine. :~ Renegade (talk | contribs) 13:39, 17 March 2008 (CDT)

  • Yes, the only reason I chose not to do anything was because you are in fact a long-time member here, Platypus, who has done some great stuff before. That said, Renegade is right, there's been a crazy amount of traffic going on at that page, and while I fully accept that there are differing views here, it's just not helpful to continually wipe the page blank. So, if you are willing, please talk about it on that page's talk page. That, at least, would help make clear why there's such a tizzy going on. --Pheon 13:45, 17 March 2008 (CDT)
  • You make it sound like I've been rude or I've personally hurt your feelings! I have reasons for all of my edits. If you don't like them, feel free to message me on AIM or MSN. If you want to ban me, please give me a decent reason. Zoey wanted to ban me before because I was being a jerk to her and she had decent reason. It appears you simply don't like my disagreeing with you. - platy march 17
  • Please don't jump to conclusions, Platypus. I simply asked you to bring your disagreements to the talk page, which you did. Thank you. In the end, I'm just happy that all of this has moved beyond consistant page-blanking/restoring. :) --Pheon 21:54, 17 March 2008 (CDT)
  • I'm not jumping to conclusions, I'm reading you words. You accused me of spamming the network and threatened to ban my IP. platy march 17

Drunk page

Hey platy, I just wanted to let you know that I saw you planned to make a table for the drunk page and I have lots of time on my hands so if you need help just let me know! Nancypants 18:31, 24 April 2008 (CDT)
