RfB thanks

Thank you for voting in my request of bureaucratship (yes, I can spell that now :P). RyanCross has closed the request has "successful" and I have now been granted the bureaucrat flag. Special thanks to my nom, Razorflame. I was not expecting to pass (as I have less support % than my previous RfB). But, I greatly thank you all for this opportunity, I do not plan to let you down. In fact, I promise to do my very best not to. :) God bless, TheAE talk 04:00, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

Rollback request granted

Hi Yotcmdr. I've granted you the rollback right per your request. If you need any help, please don't hesitate to ask me. Cheers, Tempodivalse 22:23, 14 August 2009 (UTC)

Thank you! I think I know how to use it being an admin on Simple Wiki :). Yotcmdr (talk) 22:42, 14 August 2009 (UTC)
You're welcome, glad I could help. (btw, actually I meant "help" in a general sense, not just for using the rollback tool. I knew you must have been familiar with it, being a sysop elsewhere. Smile.png) Tempodivalse 22:46, 14 August 2009 (UTC)
Oh, yeah! I have one question. Is there a list of articles we should concentrate on creating? Yotcmdr (talk) 22:49, 14 August 2009 (UTC)
There are some lists at Wikiquote:Community_Portal#Write_a_page, you could try picking a few of the more notable items from there. Tempodivalse 23:02, 14 August 2009 (UTC)

block

Per AN, please change your block of PBP89 on simple wikipedia to 2 weeks from when the first block began. Thanks, Griffinofwales (talk) 15:21, 5 October 2009 (UTC)

Lets try and keep SEWP discussions on SEWP please. Thank you, Tiptoety (talk) 16:19, 5 October 2009 (UTC)
There's a note on his WP talk to contact him here. Griffinofwales (talk) 16:20, 5 October 2009 (UTC)
IRC and email exists. Pmlineditor  16:24, 5 October 2009 (UTC)
True, but this is quicker (since he's online right now), especially since Yot isn't on IRC. Griffinofwales (talk) 16:25, 5 October 2009 (UTC)
Why can't this discussion take place at SEWP instead of here? Tempodivalse [talk] 16:27, 5 October 2009 (UTC)
There's a note on his WP talk to contact him here. Griffinofwales (talk) 16:20, 5 October 2009 (UTC) Griffinofwales (talk) 16:28, 5 October 2009 (UTC)
(edit conflict)If he's editing sewp, it belongs there. Anyways. (/me moves on.) Pmlineditor  16:29, 5 October 2009 (UTC)
"There's a note on his WP talk to contact him here." - that didn't answer my question. It's a SEWP matter, it should stay there, imho. Never mind though. (*moves on*) Cheers Tempodivalse [talk] 16:31, 5 October 2009 (UTC)

It's ok of you to contact me here. That's what I asked. I will not change the block. I will unblock him when I think is the right time. Yotcmdr (talk) 18:54, 5 October 2009 (UTC)
