Are you okay Sam? --{{User:Theyellowdart/sig}} 19:58, 16 December 2007 (UTC)

StM, your edits [http://www.hrwiki.org/index.php?title=User_talk:Sam_the_Man&curid=32595&diff=575744&oldid=575743 here], [http://www.hrwiki.org/index.php?title=User_talk:Sam_the_Man&diff=575748&oldid=575746 and here], are a little ridiculous. Not trying to be rude or worsen the situation, but if a user comes back, especially if he seems to not be making irrelevant edits, "Welcome back, vandal" doesn't seem like a warm welcome. As the links show above, It's dot com tried to inform you politely why you shouldn't post things like that on pages, and you rudely dis-acknowledged(bad wording, sorry) the notice. If memory serves me right, you've done stuff like this before. Please start taking note of these types of messages. Thanks, {{User:DevonM/sig}} 20:28, 14 July 2008 (UTC)

==Fanstuff Block==
 +
*I would be putting this on the Fanstuff Wiki, but I lost my password (fail).  Anyway, you have completely lost yourself.  You received a lot of positive comments on your talk page there.  Unwelcomed?  I guess you need to be roughened up a bit to know what "unwelcomed" means.  Being rude and saying things like "I have a life" do not make you look smarter or any better than the other users around here.  If you have a life, that's fine.  So do we.  If you are going to leave, go ahead.  But it seems as if you keep coming back to cause some drama.  Not cool, man.  You have dreams of becoming a sysop.  Let me tell you this, son: it takes more than being there to revert vandalism to be a sysop. You have to be fully grown and intelligent as a whole. You have to be able stay cool in all situations.  You have to be trustworthy.
 +
Please, think about what you are doing to yourself here.  Sincerely, {{User:Theyellowdart/sig}} 01:20, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

:Yeah, Sam is pretty inactive here. I'd suggest posting this on his fanstuff user talk with your I.P. {{User:Hrjcm/sig}} 01:49, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

Sam, I don't know why you are leaving but you shouldn't go. If you could not help, just keep trying. If you did something bad, it's ok. We don't want you to leave. You welcomed me to the wiki. If you want to leave it's ok. We'll miss you.--[[User:Onestop|ONESTOP]] 20:20, 16 December 2007 (UTC)

:Sam, I'm sorry to hear that you've chosen to leave.  I think you've done a lot of good work on our articles during the time you spent here.  I understand that you've chosen to leave because of a recent conflict regarding a post on a new user's talk page.  Please don't feel bad about that; I think you have a lot of potential, and I've seen quite a bit of improvement in the quality of your talk page posts during your time on the wiki.

:I understand your decision to leave, and if you're feeling strained by things in real life (your parents, etc.), as you mentioned, then taking a break might be a good thing.  I just want to let you know that you're welcome to return at any time, and I'm free to discuss anything you want about the reason you left.

hey sam, how have you been?  since you helped me when i started, i've been making changes all over all sorts of talk pages.  and i figured out how to make my sig!  i also have 2 friends on the wiki.  check out my page to find out who, because i'm afraid i'll spell their names wrong.  oh, i don't even think you know who this is yet.  it's Homsarstrongbad150, and even with that, i bet you don't remember.  check my talk page, then you might remember.  you were the first one on it.  well, now i'm just typing nonsense, so, hopefully see you around the wiki,

Hey Sam. I noticed you left three pages marked for deletion when you decided to take a break. Did you really mean for those to be deleted, or did you just forget to untag them? If you'd still like them deleted, just say so here, otherwise just untag them. Thanks! &mdash; [[User:It's dot com|It's dot com]] 00:32, 20 December 2007 (UTC)

== Concerning Justin ==
+
== Pistols for Pandas ==
-
Hi, Sam, there are still some things we need to work on when dealing with newer users. [http://www.hrwiki.org/index.php?title=User_talk:Justin_Master_of_Nature&diff=prev&oldid=529566 Here] you are improving in writing your messages, but you still need to polish it up. For example, "you making way to many subpages" has two problems: first, it needs to be "you ''are'' making way ''too'' many". (There are also other parts that need proofreading that I won't discuss.) Second, the problem isn't really that he's making too many subpages; it's that the subpages do not comply with our policy. It would have been best to link to our policy, [[HRWiki:User space#What about user subpages?|like this]].
+
I suggest you change the Pistols for Pandas page to this revised link; [[Pistols For Pandas (organisation)|Pistols For Pandas]], as MHarrington created the toon page, and this is also a bit of a clean up. No creulty meant - just suggesting a way to make your page better!  {{User:Jagger88/sig}} 11:38, 27 April 2009 (UTC)
-
Also, when Justin became disruptive (and yes, he was disruptive, you are right about that), you began to use some alarmed-sounding language, like the edit summaries [http://www.hrwiki.org/index.php?title=User_talk:Justin_Master_of_Nature&curid=39847&diff=529589&oldid=529586&rcid=486423 here] and [http://www.hrwiki.org/index.php?title=User_talk:Trey56&curid=9706&diff=529587&oldid=529582&rcid=486421 here]. This is a bad idea because it tends to make the situation worse: it does the opposite of calming the person down. It also was a bad idea to edit war with OptimisticFool over his userpage. If you disagree with someone else about what's acceptable on a userpage, ask a sysop to intervene.
+
== You Dead? ==
-
I say this not to be overly critical, but because we do still need to present a professional, tactful and calm voice to our new users, even if they're disruptive. Therefore, please read the messages you write to users carefully and make sure they're clear and grammatically correct. And if they become disruptive, be calm in return (if you have a hard time with this, consider just waiting it out until someone else deals with the situation). Keep these in mind, and you should be on the road to doing better. Deal? Deal. OK, keep on tranglin'! {{User:Heimstern Läufer/sig}} 03:01, 22 December 2007 (UTC)
+
Oh, Sam the Man ... I [[Pining|pine]] for you! {{User:OptimisticFool/sig}} 03:32, 30 April 2011 (UTC)
-
:Also very important: if you suspect that a user is a sock, please do not ever post that suspicion on the user's talk page. If turns out that you're wrong and it's just a new user, one of the first things that new user will see is that accusation. Instead, ask a sysop to deal with it. My talk page is always open for this.

I'm kind of curious how you're going to back up the "last warning" you gave Justin. Last I checked you don't have access to the block feature.

== Reply to your deleted comments ==
+
-
I'm sorry, Sam, we know you are trying to helpful. But unfortunately, you aren't succeeding. You say you're not trying to start fights, and I believe you. Nonetheless, fights do start when you talk to new users often enough that we have no choice but to restrict you on this. We've tried to give you advice several times, but it doesn't seem to be sinking in.
+
-
 
+
-
I know you are trying to be helpful, and I would encourage you to be helpful in some other way, as It's dot com has said above. You could also take advantage of his offer of help on IRC (I can probably help out with this, too, if you'd like.)
+

We don't want to discourage you from contributing, but we can't have the disruption that results from your interaction with new users any longer, even if it's not intentional. I'm sorry. {{User:Heimstern Läufer/sig}} 20:45, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

:Sam, I really don't understand what you are doing, recently. You have been asked several times not to do [http://www.hrwiki.org/index.php?title=User_talk:Justin_Master_of_Nature&diff=532854&oldid=532832 this] anymore. Can it really be so hard to stay away from edits of this kind and simply contribute to the wiki?  Also, that edit summary was way out of order after what It's dot com and Heimstern asked you. As Heimstern said, this behaviour is disruptive to the wiki, and you're not helping anybody. Please stop it right now. In addition to this, [http://www.hrwiki.org/index.php?title=User:Sam_the_Man&diff=532851&oldid=532850 threatening to vandalize] is not acceptable, and you know it. Maybe it really is a good idea for you to take a break and cool down a little. When you come back, please have another read of our comments on your talk page, and check out your old edits. Maybe with a clear head, you'll see what went wrong. See you then,{{User:Loafing/sig}} 21:15, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

:::::If you're in a rush, then don't put up notices on users' talk pages. Simple as that. What's the harm in letting another user do that? It's certainly better than leaving messages that are not up to standard - especially when you ''know'' that you're not doing it properly. You have been asked before not to police other users for a while, and my advice for you is to always make sure you're doing it absolutely correct when you're about to post something on a talk page. If you're unsure whether you follow our policies and guidelines, '''don't post'''. If you know you're not doing it properly, '''don't post'''. There's always next time. And it's a wiki, so don't stress, someone else will do the job if you don't.{{User:Loafing/sig}} 00:55, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Sam, please remember that you aren't supposed to be policing the wiki. Something like [http://www.hrwiki.org/index.php?title=User_talk:Dicai&diff=next&oldid=540000 this] counts as policing.

See [[HRWiki:Talk page etiquette#General]] - while it's not best practice, one is well in their rights to remove posts from their talk page. The only possible exception to this would be an official message on behalf of admins, and even there it's a grey area. Reverting that with impunity would just result in a quickening of the eventual consequence (likely a ban) anyway. As much as I agree with your post and the sentiment behind it, and as much as I agree that he should let it stand, he's entitled to not have it there if he chooses. {{User:Qermaq/sig}} 16:00, 3 February 2008 (UTC)

i realized there was probably not enough of them to have a page, but i wanted to do SOMETHING for hrwiki.org.  and for you to be able to find my paghe while i'm still working!  amazing!!!  so thank you for helping me realize that it wasn't a good idea and for being the first person on my talk page.  yes, i'm that new.  12/24/07 as stated in my user page.  but i'll keep trying to do something other than fix a gramatical error.  i realize also that i probably won't be able to get to alot of pages/ideals before anyone else.  to be honest, i thought there already was a page on the stuffed animals. i've seen your name all over the wiki, and i told you, i haven't been a member for long, but i've known about the site for about a year.

Hey, I noticed on your talk page that you said Pokemon sucks. Do you mean the anime or everything about it? Because I've been a Pokemon fan forever, and I just wanted to check.

(I am also leaving the same message to SamFisher1022 and DeFender1031.) As established editors I believe you handled poorly the welcoming of this user.  Instead of providing a more welcoming and inviting message, you have a quick edit war of sorts in someone else's user talk page.  Imagine how a new user would feel seeing this kind of mysterious edit summary arguments going on. This sort of behavior could easily turn away prospective editors (good or not so much).  I think in general we've established a bad habit of quick reverts with a simple edit summary and no explanation.  Friendly but informative notices to less established users should be the norm, not the exception. --[[User:Stux|Stux]] 20:08, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

Hey, Sam The Man. It's that guy Qermaq. I see from previous posts that some are critical of your interactions here. I can't disagree with them, sometimes you approach is gruff, but I can see your intent is good in faith. Allow me to be a resource to you.
+
-

On my user page, I have a [[User:Qermaq#How to become a sysop good user|section]] which gets into positive behavior and attitude here. I encourage you to give that a read. Also, take a look at [[HRW:BITE|this]], a concept I fail at still, time to time. And feel free to contact me via my user talk or elsewhere if you ever have a question. I know you intend to be a smart user at heart, and I extend my advice and experience to you. {{User:Qermaq/sig}} 00:35, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

:Thank you Qermaq. I try to be helpful, but I just can't find out. I know I'll never be a sysop here (I was blocked), so I try to act at least a little bit. {{User:Sam the Man/sig}} 21:31, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

== Overstepping your authority again ==
+
-
 
+

Hello Sam. We've been trying to give you a little more latitude with regard to interacting with users (even new users), but we must remind you that you are not the wiki's policeman, and it is not your place to edit another user's user page to remove a "users who suck" list, regardless of whether that list is inappropriate. If you have a problem with the content of someone's user page, you should put a note on their talk page or, better yet, discuss it with a sysop. Sysops are available almost all the time on IRC, and I remind you that several of us have specifically offered to assist you in deciding how to handle situations just like these. &mdash; [[User:It's dot com|It's dot com]] 23:57, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

-
:It seems common practice here to only edit a userpage when there is, say, a coding error the user cannot repair, and even then it's best to get the user's consent on Talk before proceeding. User page editing for policy reasons is best left to those holding the keys, in order that any repercussions are in clear view of those who can block and delete pages as appropriate. If you, or I, take actions which might enrage a user, the resulting reaction might require a sysop's presence to quickly resolve, so it's best to have them on board and aware. User pages are the one thing a user has nearly entire control over, and I think that we all should respect that, even if the user puts up something inappropriate. Give them the chance to remediate on their own, and be sure a sysop is aware before any intrusive action is taken. {{User:Qermaq/sig}} 03:14, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

== Refining the approach ==
+
-
 
+
-
Regading [http://hrwiki.org/index.php?title=User_talk:Meme3&curid=38851&diff=547587&oldid=547575 this]: the intent was not bad, but the phrasing was. While we want talk contributors to use good communication skills, there's no policy stating that, and frankly we shouldn't say "you need to remember capitalizing the Letter "I"." That sounds like you're a grammarian telling others what to do.
+
-
 
+
-
An alternate approach is to tell them that you enjoy their posts, but would find it easier to read them if they'd be more careful with caps. What does this do that is different? It puts "fault" on yourself, not the other user. He's empowered to help you. Can you see how that helps the other guy not feel like he's being told what to do, and is instead feeling urged to do something that helps everyone?
+
-
 
+
-
Also, whenever you are letting a user know he "needs" to do something differently, it's a good idea to link to an example so it's clear what the issue was. Often just seeing an old edit again makes the gaffe clear enough. {{User:Qermaq/sig}} 17:58, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

== Policing again ==
+

+

Sam, we've told you several times now that you are not to police the wiki, yet today you wrote [http://www.hrwiki.org/index.php?title=User_talk:JimmyJoe&curid=41459&diff=548906&oldid=548896&rcid=506146 this]. Enough is enough, Sam. You need to stop doing this. If you keep it up, we may have no choice but to block you to stop this.
+
-
 
+
-
As It's dot com and I (and possibly others) have told you several times, you are more than welcome to contact a sysop to ask for help if there is a problem. Please take advantage of this. You may yet be able to learn how to do this right if you do so, and then we won't have to be here anymore. {{User:Heimstern Läufer/sig}} 00:51, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

::::No, I don't agree. Yes, bad pages ought not to be made, but new users will do this. I will say you started well, linking to the guidelines was very helpful and your tone was respectful. But there was no point for a further post from you. You did your part. If the issue continues (as it did), allow other voices to try. He either wasn't listening to yours, or was not listening to anyone, but it was clear you needed to step away and allow someone else to try a different approach. So you get Not Last Place.

[edit] User talk Stuff

StM, your edits here, and here, are a little ridiculous. Not trying to be rude or worsen the situation, but if a user comes back, especially if he seems to not be making irrelevant edits, "Welcome back, vandal" doesn't seem like a warm welcome. As the links show above, It's dot com tried to inform you politely why you shouldn't post things like that on pages, and you rudely dis-acknowledged(bad wording, sorry) the notice. If memory serves me right, you've done stuff like this before. Please start taking note of these types of messages. Thanks, DevonM(talk·cont-ribs) 20:28, 14 July 2008 (UTC)

Please, Sam, if you cannot post a constructive comment that moves this conversation in a positive direction, don't post yet. If you are angry, don't post.

[edit] Fanstuff Block

  • I would be putting this on the Fanstuff Wiki, but I lost my password (fail). Anyway, you have completely lost yourself. You received a lot of positive comments on your talk page there. Unwelcomed? I guess you need to be roughened up a bit to know what "unwelcomed" means. Being rude and saying things like "I have a life" do not make you look smarter or any better than the other users around here. If you have a life, that's fine. So do we. If you are going to leave, go ahead. But it seems as if you keep coming back to cause some drama. Not cool, man. You have dreams of becoming a sysop. Let me tell you this, son: it takes more than being there to revert vandalism to be a sysop. You have to be fully grown and intelligent as a whole. You have to be able stay cool in all situations. You have to be trustworthy.

Please, think about what you are doing to yourself here. Sincerely, TheYellowDart(t/c) 01:20, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, Sam is pretty inactive here. I'd suggest posting this on his fanstuff user talk with your I.P. JCM 01:49, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

hey sam, how have you been? since you helped me when i started, i've been making changes all over all sorts of talk pages. and i figured out how to make my sig! i also have 2 friends on the wiki. check out my page to find out who, because i'm afraid i'll spell their names wrong. oh, i don't even think you know who this is yet. it's Homsarstrongbad150, and even with that, i bet you don't remember. check my talk page, then you might remember. you were the first one on it. well, now i'm just typing nonsense, so, hopefully see you around the wiki,
