User talk:

Hello, and welcome to Wiktionary. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy editing here! By the way, you can sign your comments on talk (discussion) pages using four tildes, like this: ~~~~, which automatically produces your name (or IP number if you're not signed in) and the current date and time. If you have any questions, then see the help pages, add a question to one of the discussion rooms or ask me on my talk page.

Stop adding redirects for misspellings, or you will likely be blocked from editing.​—msh210 20:32, 11 February 2010 (UTC)

Nice to hear from you mr asshole, why such a nice attitude? You think I'm the only poor slob who can't spell? You racist or something?
If they're really common misspellings, make a "common misspelling" entry like this one: accomodation (edit the page to see how it's done). We don't use redirects for misspellings; it causes a bunch of problems. Thanks. Equinox 20:38, 11 February 2010 (UTC)
Thank you for this useful reply. Made me feel a lot better. I'll try to follow the rules more carefully in the future.
Sorry. Here's what happened. Wiktionarians in general — and in particular I — used to include welcome messages like the one above (starting with "Welcome" and ending at "ask me on my talk page", but without the warning of being blocked), and then block a user if he didn't read the linked-to policy pages and continued editing in ways that people had to revert. (Some people got blocked without warning, but that was generally reserved for people editing in bad faith, which you obviously were not.) (The block wouldn't be for long — perhaps a day — essentially just long enough to allow him to stop editing, read the policies, and then start again.) Then people started saying "we should improve our attitude. Let's warn them explicitly before we block them, so they know to stop". Hence my warning. See? It was actually a nice thing I did, warn you, instead of block you!  :-P  See also (and perhaps I should reread also) Help:Interacting with humans. All the best.​—msh210 15:33, 12 February 2010 (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 to avoid future confusion with other anonymous users.
