Welcome to Wikinews

Hello, thanks for your contributions to Wikinews. While I realize this is not your home-wiki, I find it annoying that your signature links to Commons. I don't object to the redirects at your user and talk pages, however. It makes it a chore to see, what contributions you have made here. I wouldn't have said anything if you were just editing/correcting articles here-and-there, but you are voting on deletions, checkuser requests, and more; thus involving yourself in the project more deeply. Therefore, I ask you to change your sig. Thanks, --SVTCobra 00:18, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

Ya. I understand. When I set myself up on other Wiki's. I copy my sig template, redirect my user and talk pages, etc. Normally I'm not active anywhere else. But since I have become here, I've turned it off. Sorry about that. --ShakataGaNai ^_^ 05:36, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

That Page

That page you just created I believe will be confused as nothing more than a test page for random edits, as it was by some IP. The Mind's Eye (talk) 00:03, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

That IP was me. I am testing the functionality of FlaggedRev's since no one actually understands all of how it works. I was told by admins on IRC to not use a proper article. --ShakataGaNai ^_^ 00:05, 6 August 2008 (UTC)
Cirt just deleted it, I didn't ask him to or anything BTW, he just did. The Mind's Eye (talk) 00:06, 6 August 2008 (UTC)
Yes. So I noticed.... So I noticed... --ShakataGaNai ^_^ 00:07, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Shakata a Q?

Merge all stubs into shorts??? --SpranglingGarter (talk) 05:05, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

That would probably be a very good idea. Honestly, I don't think much of this is worthy of it's own article, especially the local stuff. --ShakataGaNai ^_^ 05:08, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

yep agreed. --SpranglingGarter (talk) 05:09, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

another quickie....

i could just request articles even though they probably will never get reviewed.... --SpranglingGarter (talk) 05:23, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

You can put article requests on Wikinews:Requested articles --ShakataGaNai ^_^ 05:26, 10 August 2008 (UTC)
well my mind if really outa gas so i reqed a article... --SpranglingGarter (talk) 05:30, 10 August 2008 (UTC)


Why don't you have a go at writing another article? The work you did at Potential Wikia mass exodus was good. Anonymous101talk 18:30, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

I'm looking for something. That article was basically handed to me by GreenReaper. --ShakataGaNai ^_^ 18:46, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

Exceptional Newcomer Award

I, SVTCobra, award ShakataGaNai "The Exceptional Newcomer Award" for exceptional enthusiasm, skill, and boldness beyond their experience. I hope to see you around here for a long time. Cheers, --SVTCobra 22:59, 14 August 2008 (UTC)
Iz a barn-butteryfly? Cool, thanks. You know, I've been on en.wp since 2004, around Commons since early this year and an Admin there for many months... and this is the first time anyone's ever given me an award for anything. --ShakataGaNai ^_^ 23:25, 14 August 2008 (UTC)


None of the links worked on WN, so I went to WP and went as high as possible. —Calebrw (talk) 13:21, 15 August 2008 (UTC)


Hi there. I edited that Georgia article, but didn't understand the intended meaning of the first sentence of the second paragraph. It's completely unintelligable, and I don't know much about the situation so couldn't improve it. :) Cheers! Brynn (talk) 01:08, 20 August 2008 (UTC)
