  3. Symbol support vote.svg Support Equinox 02:04, 31 October 2009 (UTC) Contributions seem good and I haven't heard anything bad from the community. Equinox 02:04, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
  4. Symbol support vote.svg Support Volants 14:45, 3 November 2009 (UTC) I like him.
  5. Symbol support vote.svg Support --Vahagn Petrosyan 14:59, 3 November 2009 (UTC) Me too. I think he is wonderfool. --Vahagn Petrosyan 14:59, 3 November 2009 (UTC)
    1. Another one? So that makes 5 supposed Wonderfool socks, right? User:Internoob, User:Equinox, User:Mglovesfun, me and User:DCDuring? Or is this an in-joke that I don't get? --Rising Sun 18:15, 3 November 2009 (UTC)
      N.B. In U.S. English at least, "supposed" implies that something isn't the case. You probably mean "suspected", "suggested", or "proposed". Keep in mind that Wonderfool's MO includes large numbers of sockpuppets interacting with each other, arguing with each other, RFDing each other's entries, and accusing each other of being Wonderfool; so if there are only five editors that we suspect of Wonderfolly, then we're probably missing a few. ;-)   —RuakhTALK 22:58, 3 November 2009 (UTC)
      whoever smelt it dealt it - Ruakh's Wonderfool by process of un-elimination. Conrad.Irwin 23:18, 3 November 2009 (UTC)
      You know, I thought I might be, but I wasn't sure. Thanks for letting me know. —RuakhTALK 03:18, 4 November 2009 (UTC)
      Nah. Just you, this and Equinox. As I've already said, you need a new thing. Learn a new language. Uzbek, for example. It's always French and English. Also, be careful picking a username. Less astronomy, more like User:Bob1970. Or else would not vote for you the next time; you bore me. --Vahagn Petrosyan 06:58, 4 November 2009 (UTC)
      Your phrase "you, this and Equinox" is interesting, in that it's completely intelligible, but defies our entry for you. In that phrase, you seems to refer to the account "Rising Sun", rather than its owner; but [[you]] claims that you refers only to a person. It looks like [[you]] needs even more rewriting than I'd realized. —RuakhTALK 19:23, 4 November 2009 (UTC)
      Vahag, my nickname "equinox" has nothing to do with astronomy. It's because of my sleeping habits: equally night and day. Also, I've used it online for a decade, quite possibly before Wonderfool came along (but I wouldn't know). You're seriously paranoid. Equinox 00:38, 6 November 2009 (UTC)

  7. Symbol support vote.svg Support. Highly unlikely to be Wonderfool as he knows IPA and SAMPA and Haitian Creole. Frankly I don't care if he's Mussolini, I just care that he makes A LOT of good edits here. Mglovesfun (talk) 19:26, 4 November 2009 (UTC)
    Internoob writes that Haitian Creole is "dead simple" if one knows "some French", so "unlikely to be Wonderfool as he knows ... Haitian Creole") may not be a good argument.​—msh210 19:34, 4 November 2009 (UTC)
    Oh, and Mussolini is dead, by the way.​—msh210 19:35, 4 November 2009 (UTC)
    Mussolini was a Wonderfool sock. He obviously faked his own death to keep from being blocked. So, can I suspect myself of being a Mussolini sockpuppet or does someone else have to do that? --Yair rand 21:44, 4 November 2009 (UTC)
  8. Symbol support vote.svg Support and btw, while all this talk of WF is floating around I'd just like to make a point: if Equinox was to be WF then you would have to add split personalities to his list of traits because before Jackofclubs 'fessed up and said he was WF he was making some casual conversation on his talk page, about words containing meat that are unrelated to the food I believe. ;) 50 Xylophone Players talk 21:28, 4 November 2009 (UTC)
    More damningly, we both made edits while logged in at the exact same time. But that doesn't mean anything because BOO HOO OHMYGOD IT MIGHT BE WONDERFOOL. Equinox 00:36, 6 November 2009 (UTC)

  11. Symbol support vote.svg Support Now it seems we need to create a Category:Users suspected to be Wonderfool or something to warn everybody .... Oh yes and a page "What you should not do or otherwise people will call you Wonderfool". j/k L☺g☺maniac chat? 16:22, 6 November 2009 (UTC)

  1. Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Ivan Štambuk 22:06, 4 November 2009 (UTC) I suspect imminent mainpage deletion. --Ivan Štambuk 22:06, 4 November 2009 (UTC)


  1. Symbol abstain vote.svg Abstain On suspicion of being Wonderfool. If he needs to do anything admin related, Equinox can probably do it. (I'd love to be proved wrong about that suspicion though). --Bequw¢τ 21:21, 4 November 2009 (UTC)
    Do we have any cause to believe that I am Wonderfool? Or is this just a witch hunt? —Internoob (Disc.Cont.) 23:37, 4 November 2009 (UTC)
    Does he weigh the same as a duck? Conrad.Irwin 00:34, 6 November 2009 (UTC)
  2. Symbol abstain vote.svg Abstain User "Rising Sun" is WF. I haven't looked at Internoob's contributions (and haven't noticed them otherwise). Do note that when WF got "Keene" a sysop flag, he almost immediately created "Keene2", claiming to have lost the password or something to "Keene", which removed the temptation of the "delete" tab. But later returned to "Keene" and deleted the main page. He might, or might not, be trying to get a sock sysopped. Internoob: if you have nothing to do with WF, my apologies (and do understand that the whole thing is more funny than irritating to us, but is getting rather old). Being nominated by WF is not really a good sign. Robert Ullmann 08:53, 12 November 2009 (UTC)
