Unprotect

I will leave that up to Ec as the protecting sysop, welcome back though. - TheDaveRoss

Thankyou. It's been a long while since I was here, and I'll try not to cause trouble, but will carry on being a little cheeky --Expurgator t(c) 18:07, 28 February 2006 (UTC)
Cheekiness is perhaps acceptable, as long as it is sufficiently witty. - TheDaveRoss

redirects

I think the latest is that we don't do redirects for senses (buts->but etc.) but instead do a simple "plural of but, 3rd person of but" etc. - TheDaveRoss 20:36, 1 March 2006 (UTC)

meh, I'll just leave inflected terms in the future --Expurgator t(c) 10:53, 2 March 2006 (UTC)

Now what

are you up to? You know most Wikisaurus entries do not meet WT:CFI. Are you trying to get re-blocked? --Connel MacKenzie T C 22:08, 12 March 2006 (UTC)

Loading a whole bunch of questionable entries is hard to imagine as helpful. As main namespace entries, they are each now subject to the time-consuming process of RFV. --Connel MacKenzie T C 22:12, 12 March 2006 (UTC)
Ah yeah, I can see where you're coming from actually, regarding easy peasy lemon squeezy and pimpsqueak. Hmmm, I got carried away in my own little world thinking about stuff my mum used to say to me. RFV, bah. But hey, I wasn't being malicious, and was not after a block again! Hmm, I think I should go to bed now, my brain is beginning to hurt again. --Expurgator t(c) 22:18, 12 March 2006 (UTC)

Hey buddy!

Howdy partner! I got your message on my talk page and I am thankful for your amiable comments. Unfortunately, I am in a somewhat foul mood tonight, as I just discovered that my apartment is infested with rats. They carried off some of my food last night, and I can't get it back because I can't get up to chase after them or properly deal with them. So here I sit, with rats coming and going as they please and not a thing I can do about them. Kind of makes you wonder if life is like that. We're all a bit like fat men, surrounded by the rodents of misfortune and distaster which come and go as they please... and all we can do is sit there and watch. Oh well.

I know what you mean. It's like the other day, when I was coming back from the pub and looking for some fresh fruit and some trout, when I discovered that I'd already eaten them, so I had to make do with having carrots mixed in with Japanese wakamé seawood soup, sprinkled with Herbes de Provence. The metaphorical rats are surrounding my metaphorically fat body as we speak, Mr. Obese. Keep up the entertainment, dude. --Expurgator t(c) 11:45, 13 March 2006 (UTC)

If you can't beat 'em, eat 'em. That's today's lesson. I'll let you guess as to what it means... IamMorbidlyObese

Yeah...When the bureaucratic rats (and the Cardiffian pigeons) are eating away at your soul, then it's best to bes strong and show that you're above them, by making rumpsteaks out of their rumps and consuming the very souls that are out to consume you. You're a wise man, almost gurulike. --Expurgator t(c) 17:26, 13 March 2006 (UTC)

Hmm. I'm sitting here eating pork rinds, and a rather creepy thought just broke into my mind. I've been called a FAT PIG before. If I am a pig eating the deep-friend flesh of a pig... does that make a cannibal? IamMorbidlyObese

me admin ?!?

Maybe... I just don't know if I'm involved enough here, and if people who are not on IRC know me (You're the first proof that some do). Kipmaster 16:08, 15 March 2006 (UTC)

Old Talk page

Old talk page I'll put at User:Wonderfool/Old Talk Page for you. --Dangherous 12:49, 17 March 2006 (UTC)

You beauty - WF

Your recent entries

Your English entries are not getting any better. For instance, philharmonic is primarily an adjective. But I haven't got the time to tidy up behind you, so I was wondering if perhaps you ought to concentrate on French entries? SemperBlotto 15:03, 21 March 2006 (UTC)

I used to concentrate on French entries, but am bored of that now. Now I'm concentratin on de-redlinking all the uninflected words up to Wiktionary:Frequency lists/TV/2006/40001-41284, which I find far more uplifting than definin French entries - you can find loads better French definitions on other websites than this one, but words like pissy, mwah ha ha, thingie, dirtbag, grr, rrr, mmmhmm, stogie, fatso, dipshit, sleepyhead, butthole, looker, hehe, doddle, easy peasy, itty bitty tinsy winsy yellow polka dot bikini, ting, ahhhhh, ooooh, ohhhh, yeeha!, munchkin, hustler and woohoo generally aren't defined in most dictionaries, unlike French words. So I'm doing y'all a favour. Now leave me alone, you ragamuffin. --Expurgator t(c) 15:10, 21 March 2006 (UTC)


Edit summaries

Please use appropiate edit summaries when editing Wiktionary, Thanks! -- Tawker 22:33, 27 March 2006 (UTC)

It's not my style to do proper edit summaries. That's just the way it is. I try to do good edit summaries, but in the end they turn normally into a blog. It's sumthin the others have come to reluctantly accept. --Expurgator t(c) 00:35, 28 March 2006 (UTC)
This is neither here nor there...but I am frequently amused. I still can't bring myself to fix rambling ;) - TheDaveRoss 00:46, 28 March 2006 (UTC)
It's nice to see reek unchanged too. --Expurgator t(c) 15:16, 28 March 2006 (UTC)

TOC template usage

Hi. Can you please stop using the TOC templates in Categories of languages that do not use characters in those templates? (for example: do not use the Latin/English alphabet TOC in Serbian...and also do not use Russian there either...because Serbian alphabet is not the same as Russian) If you want, you can make appropriate templates and then use them. --Dijan 14:43, 30 March 2006 (UTC)

Good point. I'll leave the Cyrillic stuff to ppl who know better. --Expurgator t(c) 14:46, 30 March 2006 (UTC)

There is no spoon

Why did you move my new entry to your subpage? I'm a bit confused. --68.102.193.78 22:53, 8 April 2006 (UTC)

Because the article is going to be deleted, and me moving it will save the page. --Expurgator t(c) 22:54, 8 April 2006 (UTC)

Oh, thanks. How'd you know it was going to be deleted? Besides, I thought notable words, acronyms, or phrases stay on Wiktionary, so why would someone want to delete it right away? --68.102.193.78 22:56, 8 April 2006 (UTC)
Nope. Notability is an aspect of criteria for inclusion on Wikipedia. Here we focus instead on attestation. Although I'm certain WF was correct that it would immediately be nominated for deletion, I think it might have stood a chance as an internet interjection (with citations, of course.) --Connel MacKenzie T C 23:00, 8 April 2006 (UTC)
I've been here long enough to know that dictionaries aren't places to put film phrases. I'll show you - see how long here's Johnny lasts. Not so long. Try Wikisource. --Expurgator t(c) 22:59, 8 April 2006 (UTC)
You'd be best to ask Connel MacKenzie about this. I'm a dodgy user who tends to occasionally mislead the public. Connel MacKenzie is more professional. --Expurgator t(c) 23:02, 8 April 2006 (UTC)

I don't know

I have heard French people just say "Je sais pas" (or even "sais pas") rather than with the "ne". Is this incorrect? SemperBlotto 11:37, 10 April 2006 (UTC)

Incorrect, yes, but it's like je sais pas = I dunno, and "sais pas" = dunno. It's just a shorterning, and is very common in oral, but don't go writing "je sais pas" in a university French dissertation. --Expurgator t(c) 11:40, 10 April 2006 (UTC)
And then I've seen "ché pô" as a further shortening too. --Expurgator t(c) 19:51, 10 April 2006 (UTC)

It's slang, the same as you might say "dunno" in English. "Je sais pas" is not a special construction, though; the "ne" can be dropped from from "ne ... pas" with any verb.

minimalist

Care to fix this? ;-) — Vildricianus 14:57, 13 April 2006 (UTC)

Lol, sorry. I got lazy. --Expurgator t(c) 16:40, 13 April 2006 (UTC)

TV words

What's with the "TV words"? I know you mean "a word used on TV", but then that makes just about every word in the English language a TV word. Or do you mean "a word heard on TV that isn't a 'real' word"? If that is the case (eg, mockolate), they they don't really belong them in Wiktionary, as they fail WS:CFI. — Paul G 15:25, 13 April 2006 (UTC)

Well, when i write "tv word" in my edit summary, it means that it's in the current TV frequency list that I'm working on. Most of the words in those frequency lists (as you go further down) are pretty useless. Those ones I dismiss and ignore, but the words I myself have heard of (or ones whose meaning I can easily check) I knock off a definition for. Mockolate, for example, I've heard used before, so this assume it is Wiktionarifiable. --Expurgator t(c) 16:40, 13 April 2006 (UTC)

AOC

  1. AOC is not an acronym (see the definition)
  2. Please wikify the whole expansion of the abbreviation (not its component words)
  3. Put the translation or definition of the expanded form in the entry for the expanded form, not the entry for the abbreviation.

Thanks. — Paul G 15:29, 13 April 2006 (UTC)

Hmm, sounds reasonable, I'll clean it up. --Expurgator t(c) 16:40, 13 April 2006 (UTC)

Chemical formulae

I don't see the point of having simple chemical formulae that just list the numbers of each element. It is meaningless to the general public. It is of no interest to techies because it does not show the structure of the molecule. SemperBlotto 15:43, 13 April 2006 (UTC)

Really? I think it's OK, but then again, as you're the local chemistry expert here, I'll leave them out from now. --Expurgator t(c) 16:40, 13 April 2006 (UTC)

Can I persuafde you not to use Template space for strictly personal stuff

As someone who spent ages trying to work out what tmeplates did when I first started using Wiktionary, I became a bit protective of the Template: namespace.

I notice you are using [[Template:Wonderfool's to do]] . Can I persuade you to rename it to [[User:Wonderfool:Wonderfool's to do]], or similar. You can still use the form {{User:Wonderfool:Wonderfool's to do}} just like a template, to inlcude the content. But it would no longer clutter up the Template namespace.

Sorry if I'm being a bit picky. But, thought I'd ask just in case you didn't know that you can include stuff without actually using the Template: namespace.--Richardb 14:24, 15 April 2006 (UTC)

OK then, Rich, I'll move them. Feel free to delete the old redirects. --Expurgator t(c) 15:30, 15 April 2006 (UTC)

Can I persuade you not to use Wiktionary space for blabla

Wiktionary:Staff Christmas party ---> delete/no delete? — Vildricianus 21:35, 16 April 2006 (UTC)

Sockpuppetry

Please, no more alternative accounts. Can you confirm User:Onefool is you? We had some impersonation lately, so it's hard to tell who's who. Jokes are OK, but there's limits regarding accounts and socking. Next account will be blocked on sight. Cheers. —Vildricianus 10:37, 21 May 2006 (UTC)

Does that include this one or my fishy one? --Newnoise (Shout louder) 20:25, 31 May 2006 (UTC)
I'd appreciate it if you used only the Newnoise and the Wonderfool accounts. —Vildricianus 21:03, 31 May 2006 (UTC)
Noted. I don't use WF account nemore neway (just the subpages). Btw, your signature is a bit annoying, cos when one clicks on your name it send us to Special:Mypage, which, if you are you, is fine, but if one is not you, it send one to one's own userpage. --Newnoise (Shout louder) 09:45, 1 June 2006 (UTC)
I'll probably get tired of it soon enough. —Vildricianus 10:24, 1 June 2006 (UTC)
Already. — Vildricianus 20:53, 2 June 2006 (UTC)

awadapepe

Do you remember where you got awadapepe? Is the language really "Font", or could it be Fon? —scs 06:55, 8 June 2006 (UTC)

I don't remember. Sounded pretty though

User page pic

What the hell is the picture on your userpage? Is it actually someone using a blowtorch on a bird? --Dangherous 13:35, 8 June 2006 (UTC)

The person in question in the President of the USA. No joke. --Expurgator t(c) 22:52, 2 July 2006 (UTC)
Burning a golden eagle of all birds...necessary to cull for bird flu protection. --Expurgator t(c) 18:17, 3 July 2006 (UTC)

2:2

Well done mate – good work. Widsith 14:36, 7 July 2006 (UTC)

I reckon I would've got a 2:1 if it wasn't for Wiktionary and Wikipedia though. But still, a 71% for French language is something I'm proud of. Not so much of the 40something maths marks tho. But maths is de la merde. --Expurgator t(c) 15:27, 8 July 2006 (UTC)

portant etc

What else does it mean?

p.s. Waiting for biftek au poivre (S.B. had some in the Rue des Capucins some years ago - can't remember what else I ate in Paris except for some nice but very pink lamb and salade nicoise). SemperBlotto 21:24, 8 July 2006 (UTC)

portant is pretty much done for French, but 'twas in Brian's hotlist, so claimeth to be an English word. I'm laying off the English for a while - too much of the mother tongue makes me mal portant. --Expurgator t(c) 21:27, 8 July 2006 (UTC)
As for bifteck au poivre - just a sum of its parts really, so I'm in no hurry to define it. Same with crèpe au jambon (ham pancake). Some dictionaries and phrase books have this as an entry of its own, but not Wonderfool's dictionary. --Expurgator t(c) 21:31, 8 July 2006 (UTC)

User:POOPMONSTER

Looks like there is a vandal on the loose! 216.164.203.90 17:27, 22 July 2006 (UTC)

Cool, let the vandal do more vandalism. The sysops love clearing up vandalism. Good luck to you in your life, my friend. --Expurgator t(c) 17:28, 22 July 2006 (UTC)
Damn bot blocked the poor guy. Down with Takwker. --Expurgator t(c) 17:31, 22 July 2006 (UTC)

Can I delete this? Widsith 16:55, 24 July 2006 (UTC)

Hmm, I must've been having Num Lock problems. It should be "prouva", it seems. Whack the bastard. --WildrickExpurgator t(c) 16:57, 24 July 2006 (UTC)

Great, I thought it was some txt msg argot I wasn't up to speed with... Widsith 17:02, 24 July 2006 (UTC)

You mean "moinersicatva"? Yeah, that must be some very underground txt msg argot. --WildrickExpurgator t(c) 21:01, 24 July 2006 (UTC)

Stop Googlebombing my name in your signature! — Vildricianus 22:16, 24 July 2006 (UTC)

I'll probably get tired of it soon enough. --Newnoise (Shout louder) 22:55, 24 July 2006 (UTC)

Who are you?

I have heard mention of you before. You are a former administator I see. What happened? † Raifʻhār Doremítzwr 00:22, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

Maybe this perhaps?? 202.89.38.70 09:25, 25 April 2007 (UTC)

Ah! I see. † Raifʻhār Doremítzwr 15:34, 6 July 2007 (UTC)

User talk:Wonderfool

Apparently this is the talk page of a permanently banned user, and as a result it should be deleted IMHO. --Rockpilot 21:56, 22 October 2011 (UTC)

  • Keep. Keep talk pages of banned users. --Dan Polansky 06:07, 23 October 2011 (UTC)
    • There are 77 linked pages, so I thought restoring it would be useful. Mglovesfun (talk) 09:33, 23 October 2011 (UTC)
      • Keep. I don't see why we delete the talk pages of prominent users after they are banned, just leave them protected and let people read them as an archive. —Internoob 21:57, 30 December 2011 (UTC)
