By the way, I've been going through your edits and reverting about half of them. The other half really are improvements. Just make sure you're basing it on what it really sounds like, not on the rules of formally correct writing (which don't have to apply to dialogue). And go easy on the exclamation points; as I said, we don't want it to look like Mary Worth, but it's not like they're inherently wrong. I tend to go by the character's expression as a guideline. (By the way, anyone this interested in contributing to the wiki should think about becoming a member.) —AbdiViklas 19:08, 31 October 2005 (UTC)

For example, your edits on stunt double: I wasn't able to argue with those at all! —AbdiViklas 19:26, 31 October 2005 (UTC)

Please stop changing the exclamation points. — It's dot com 23:04, 31 October 2005 (UTC)

Again, please stop. — Lapper (talk) 03:25, 1 November 2005 (UTC)
Or, at the very least, please reply to us so we can talk about it. — It's dot com

And I say again you should become a member. You show an extraordinary energy in efforts to improve the wiki, but unfortunately it's being wasted because we keep reverting roughly half of your contributions. If you took the time to familiarize yourself with our standards, and get accustomed to the swing of things, your industry would go a lot farther. —AbdiViklas 03:41, 1 November 2005 (UTC)

It seems you've found a new mission, updating the character evolutions. This is great, and you've caught a lot of omissions already, but I just wanted to alert you that I returned a couple of the "current" versions to simply saying "[style debut] to current," or something like that. The characters already have filmographies that keep track of their appearances, and Coach Z and Strong Sad's evolutions were starting to turn into redundant versions of the same!
And once again, though I don't want to badger, it would be great to have you as a real, communicative wiki member. When I saw this latest batch of edits my first thought was, "Whoa; that's an investment in the wiki unusual for an anonymous IP; I should suggest they become a member." It wasn't until I clicked talk button that I discovered it was you! (I have a hard time remembering names, but a harder time remembering 10-digit numbers.) And my second thought was to wonder how in the world you do the amount of edits—and not just slapdash edits, but obviously ones that you're researching from the source—in the time you do! Last week, I finally stopped trying to keep up with you; you were updating pages faster than I could double-check them! It's your right if you want to remain anonymous and silent, but such energy and concern for accuracy would be a tremendous asset (if you passed through our rigorous training in meditation and combat skills with an eccentric mountain-dwelling guru). (Just kidding; the training pretty much consists of someone leaving a welcome message on your talk page with helpful links.) —AbdiViklas 01:06, 7 November 2005 (UTC)

Because you are uncommunicative, people are reverting your edits without even checking them. I caught one of them and fixed it back for you, but who knows whether I can catch them all. That means that a lot of your work is going for naught. Won't you just leave us a note to tell us you're getting these messages? — It's dot com 21:24, 9 November 2005 (UTC)
Methinks he's trying to remain anonymous. :) - KieferSkunk 21:27, 9 November 2005 (UTC)
Maybe he doesn't know about the talk page. I R F 21:56, 9 November 2005 (UTC)
You can receive messages as an anonymous user. You can reply to messages on this page as an anonymous user. — It's dot com 22:01, 9 November 2005 (UTC)

This is the discussion page for an anonymous user who has not created an account yet, or who does not use it.

We therefore have to use the numerical IP address to identify him/her. Such an IP address can be shared by several users. If you are an anonymous user and feel that irrelevant comments have been directed at you, please create an account or log in to avoid future confusion with other anonymous users.
