Who on earth are you? Deiniol

It's generally traditional to offer an explanation before going on an edit rampage. Why not assuage our fears and tell us who you are and what you're doing? And what exactly needs "sorting out?" Deiniol 06:56, 21 June 2006 (PDT)
Likewise! Who are you and why are you doing this? This is a project that means a lot to the people involved. Give an introduction and an explanation please. Zahir 06:58, 21 June 2006 (PDT)
I agree with Deiniol and Zahir...your zeal for organization is appreciated, and I can see that you're not currently doing any harm, but please, introduce yourself. BoArthur 06:59, 21 June 2006 (PDT)
Are you on the list? You're not Wayne Chevrier? --Quentin 08:10, 21 June 2006 (PDT)

IB22, we've asked, we've blocked you as a warning. Please just introduce yourself; we've had a lot of spam hit us and as much as your improvements are useful, I would much rather not have to check every entry for hidden spam. BoArthur 09:58, 21 June 2006 (PDT)

For the record, I don't think the edits you've made until now are useful. Who on Earth would need a List of blocked users? Or a List of protected pages? If someone really wants to know who has been blocked, he can either look at the block log or at the pages that use the "blocked" template.

It may not have been abundantly clear to you, but this is not wikipedia, and there is no policy of "be bold and feel free" here. As it is clearly stated on the Main Page, if you are not a member but want to become one (or if you want to contribute something without becoming an actual member), you should first introduce yourself in Lla Dafern and discuss your ideas with us. I don't have the impression that your edits were made in bad faith, but I consider them vandalism nonetheless. Imagine how you would feel if you suddenly find out that a complete stranger has been redecorating your home during a short absence on your part!

So please, introduce yourself and discuss your ideas with us. If you continue reorganising this wiki without our consent you will be blocked. —IJzeren Jan Uszkie┼étu? 11:17, 21 June 2006 (PDT)
