Thanks

Hey, just wanted to say thank you for helping out with the tracking categories --- both maintaining them, and emptying them. ;) Much appreciated! Apple Bottom (talk) 20:32, 3 November 2018 (UTC)

No problem. I still have some more cleanup stuff on my to-do list which I should be able to finish up soon since I have four whole days off from school starting on Thursday. Ian07 (talk) 20:56, 3 November 2018 (UTC)
Excellent. Oh, and thanks for helping out with everything else you've been doing as well --- I'm just looking through the backlog on Special:RecentChanges, that's some good editin'. Apple Bottom (talk) 20:57, 3 November 2018 (UTC)

Also

Also, just in case you ever urgently need to get in touch (say, when infoboxes break, like they did with the blinker puffer), you can ping me by sending me a mention on Twitter (@_AppleBottom_) or a PM on the forums; the former'll get my attention faster, though it may be a while until I'm able to respond either way. I'm not able to keep daily tabs on the wiki anymore, so I may not see messages here (on the Tiki Bar, talk pages etc) for a while. Apple Bottom (talk) 22:28, 3 November 2018 (UTC)

And thanks again

Many thanks for cleaning up after the Release 29 Lexicon import project. I suspected there were quite a few loose ends, but didn't know there were quite that many missing links (and hadn't dared to look)! Dvgrn (talk) 16:52, 27 December 2018 (UTC)

Error in news entries

In the main page's "In the news" section, the forum links for the news articles of April 21, April 17, and April 10 all seem to go to the same post (the one for April 10). Even if I had the permissions to edit it, I do not know the correct links for the posts corresponding to the first two entries. Do you think you could fix this? --Ch91 (talk) 15:47, 28 April 2019 (UTC)

Fixed now. Thanks for pointing it out! Ian07 (talk) 15:57, 28 April 2019 (UTC)

Yoshi

Hello, apparently I have found out that User:Yoshi was deleted by User:Nathaniel in 2011. For some strange reason, when I created an account with this username, the username didn't exist. How bizarre! Someone else must have owned this account for some reason, even know it let me have this name as I signed up. --Yoshi (Talk to me!) 18:29, 4 December 2019 (UTC)

Heh, I was confused for a minute when I saw the custom signature (and green DISPLAYTITLE on your userpage) because for some reason I had assumed those things were exclusive to Wikipedia (no one else actually uses custom sigs here as far as I know). As for the deleted "Yoshi" from 2011, I suppose that's probably because deleting a user is different from blocking them and thus doesn't prevent you from creating a new account under that username.
Of course, on LifeWiki blocking generally isn't necessary now anyway because A. the "trusted" flag system has been used since 2016 to prevent spambots and B. vandalism by human users is basically nonexistent due to our community's small size; I've been here for over a year and paying close attention to Special:RecentChanges and I don't think I've seen a single person come here with the specific intent of causing disruption.
Having said all that, welcome! Hope you enjoy your stay here. Ian07 (talk) 21:02, 4 December 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for the heads up! --Yoshi (Talk to me!) 17:51, 5 December 2019 (UTC)
Shall I try another site to add information to Richard K. Guy? I am not very good at putting things in my own words... I just want to point that one out. --Yoshi (Talk to me!) 18:30, 5 December 2019 (UTC)
