I've Made a Big Mistake
I've made a huge mistake recently. When I blocked your old account a few days ago, I also allowed it to block any IP addresses associated with said account. This would've prevented you from using this account (EoGuy99).
Blocking this account was not my intention, but I'm fully responsible if this has indeed prevented you from editing here over the past few days. You did nothing to deserve that. Regardless of whether it was done in error or not, I'm deeply sorry for the confusion and stress this may have had on you.
I have corrected this, so you should hopefully be able to edit using this account now (though your old one will remain blocked for the time being).
If there is anything I can do to help rectify this horrible mistake, please let me know. We look forward to having you back when you can. Please take care. -- NuclearVacuum 03:36, January 7, 2018 (UTC)
- I have always been told that having multiple accounts was against site rules (regardless of whether hidden or open). Scraw was told the exact opposite. As of right now, we're in limbo. As I've told Scraw, I have no intention of re-blocking your old account (I will leave that for him to do), so you don't have to worry about that for now. -- NuclearVacuum 19:42, January 7, 2018 (UTC)
I am Baron Joshua, and I appreciate your correction of grammar in the 'Maryland (Monarchist World)' article. I'm stopping buy to let you know that if you have any ideas, suggestions, or feel that something doesn't add up (I'm mortal not omnipotent so I don't know everything and thus am faliable, capable of mistakes which if found must be corrected) just send me a message and I'll get back with you ^_^ Baron Joshua (talk) 01:18, February 16, 2018 (UTC)
2018 StirlingsCongratulations EoGuy for your success as the Best Copy Editor of 2018. Keep up the excellent work!
Due to the differences in British, American, and Canadian English you may not 'correct' the use of alternative words. My own dialect is of the American-Dixie variety (part of the American-Dixie family of dialects) where upon such words as the following are still in use; Ya'll (Ye All), Ye (You), Tis (It Is), what ever (not joined but stated as two separate words), and you all (instead of ya'll when at times speaking to foriegners and attempting to hide our dialect while doing so), and yester day (again two words not joined together). As such I have no issue with you correcting my spelling but replacing 'herself' with 'she' when I'm talking about a generic woman rather then a specific individual came off as 'too far' this morning. Around my locale 'she' is used when refering to a specific lady. Sometimes when we don't want to say her name. Herself as used in the article is a third person rather then 2nd person method of denoting an individual and is typically employed as in the article to denote a generic rather then specific woman. Baron Joshua (talk) 09:41, March 22, 2018 (UTC)
You have perhaps without intending to caused me to reflect on my choice of words. About how generic persons in my mind are narrative objects. I still find she odd in the sentence because of that. But I will restore the correction as I recognize that standard reaches a wider audience and- I was wrong and appologize. It took me a while to say it but I am sorry.--Baron Joshua (talk) 16:15, March 22, 2018 (UTC)
Do not edit my pages without reason. The spelling is the British spelling and is therefore correct. Also, a needless inclusion of capital letters is greatly unwelcome. ScienceGuy44 (talk) 01:13, March 26, 2018 (UTC)
Done and done. In future, please do not edit the spelling and grammar of my articles to an americanized variant; glaring spelling mistakes, such as "was" being typed as "wsa" is understandable. ScienceGuy44 (talk) 01:21, March 26, 2018 (UTC)
Once again; the British spelling I use is not incorrect. I have also made it quite clear that I do not want any corrections - something you suggested I do. Please refrain from constantly changing the British spelling to American spelling. ScienceGuy44 (talk) 23:47, March 27, 2018 (UTC)
"Sceptical", specifically in this circumstance, alongside signalled also.
Once again,, I would like to point out that I am not against the correction of obvious spelling and grammar mistakes, which to your credit you did iron out. However, I object strongly to this constant altering of spelling to the American spelling - I am British, I use the British spelling. There are no rules regarding a uniformity of spelling or language; as such, I shall use the British spelling for words and will ask that you respect that as I respect others usage of American spelling. ScienceGuy44 (talk) 23:54, March 27, 2018 (UTC)
Hey. My name is Sailesh. I am originally from Future but now i am intrigued by Althist. I want to join but there is a difference between how things work here and in Future. So can you help me in Understanding how things work here? Also I want to join Principia Moderni IV but I do not know how that works so can you help me with that as well? Hope I am not disturbing you. Thank you. Sailesh s nair (talk) 05:06, March 29, 2018 (UTC)
k. Ill do capitals now. Just tell me other grammar and can do.
No problem, thank you for all you do.
Something happened with the page that made it currently in a position where nobody can edit it. Not sure why but to preserve the page and ability to edit i made a relocation for it so we can continue on as normal. Hopefully this will be fixed relatively soon, if not this will more than likely become the new main paige
Transliterations abd Italics
This is the third time that you've "corrected" things on the Eritrea (Russian America) article that aren't in need of "correction."
- There's a HUGE difference between the name in English and the direct transliteration from Russian. What you are "correcting" is not English, and "correcting" it only ruins its original meaning/translation. This is why I'm asking you to stop. Please and thank you. -- NuclearVacuum 02:52, April 10, 2018 (UTC)
It’s nothing to apologize for, it’s an old, dated term for a specific type of refit done on old wooden ships, so it’s not really used much outside of historical naval context.
Thank you for all you do
Hi EoGuy. In English, "Braganza" is the accepted rendition of the Portuguese "Bragança". Please stop changing it.
Re: accidental deletion
No worries, no harm meant.
Thanks for all you do.
Hello there! I am the creator of the page Columbia has Fallen, and I am very greatful for your contribution. Thanks for catching my mistakes, and I hope you continue editing.
Hi, not sure if you are aware about edit conflict issues. When there is an edit conflict you revert all orignal edits, and people don't realise. It's come up a few times, generally normal procedure is if oyu get an edit conflict, copy and paste your changes, cancel and then re- post your changes so as not to revert someone else's edit. I wasn't sure if you were aware of this probelm or what others did. I don't know how your procedure works because I know a lot of it is automated. Is this an issue for you to not ignore edit conflicts? Person67 (talk) 21:30, May 16, 2018 (UTC)
Yeah clicking the back button then waiting a bit and clicking publish doesn't do anything. So when there is an edit conflict, in time between you starting your editing and your saving/ posting your edit someone else has posted and saved an edit. When you ignore an edit conflict, you overwitre whatever someone else has posted between the time you started editing and then you save. You need to actually cancel the whole thing, refresh the page so you see the latest edit then make your changes. Person67 (talk) 07:53, May 17, 2018 (UTC)
- Yes, it is very big problem for not ignore edit conflicts. I have very same problem with EoGuy99 edits, sometimes lost half of article.Adam100 (talk) 09:53, August 28, 2019 (UTC)
Re: Editing things other then spelling mistakes.
When you edit spelling mistakes, you also like change the ''' by their mod response requests, and have the rest of the turn in bold. I am saying that instead of changing what they make bold in their turns, just correct their spelling errors. Colgan dog (talk) 16:02, May 22, 2018 (UTC)
- What Colgan is trying to tell you is that this Wiki (as well as all Wikis) uses two and three apostrophes to make words either italic or bold.
Apostrophes can make words ''italic'' and '''bold'''
- This makes the sentence appear as follows:
Apostrophes can make words italic and bold
- What Colgan is asking is that you stop removing/correcting these apostrophes. I too asked you to stop doing this weeks ago, as this removes the visual preferences that the article's caretaker requests. -- NuclearVacuum 16:54, May 22, 2018 (UTC)
Forget about the nowiki!!!! Also,just leave formatting alone, and focus on grammar, capitalization, and spelling mistakes. Some people have their posts a certain way because that’s how they want it to appear, so please don’t change it. Colgan dog (talk) 13:56, May 27, 2018 (UTC)
Not Ethier Response
Thank you for correcting this and pointing this out,
I also hope you return when you feel best. You have made my articles more diesgitble for audiences and have helped the whole wiki.
Hello, EoGuy. Somehow one of your edits really messed up the PMIV page. I undid your edit, and then remade the edit you indicated in the "Edit Summary" for that edit. I appreciate your copy-editing, and didn't mean to be rude in my comment (I realize it may have come across that way).

That's honestly quite interesting to hear. Mid 1960s? Sound's not too long after the U2 incident haha.
Yeah, the city has definitely changed quite a lot since then. Unfortunately, I don't suppose I would be too good at describing it to you so I think you will probably have to rely on Google for that.
Anyhow, it really is nice to know. I imagine for you, it must really be quite nostalgic coming across names that remind you of the past and all. Time flies, doesn't it?
Alright, wut r u doin.... You made a mess in my Germany (Utopia) page and now I have to fix it. I demand you to at least apologize to me.
Oh yeah, I also need to warn you that you, like the others, are not allowed to edit my stuffs unless you have my permission or you're one of those admins. Now, I also demand an explanation on why did u edited my page without ever asking. You seriously put mess there.
Re: What did I do?
I'm sorry, you did nothing wrong. I should have sent you a message earlier. I truly appreciate your editing, but I just have a certain set of preferences when it comes to writing, such as using Oxford commas, not using a period at the end of a bullet point, etc.
Additionally, when I have a line such as:
adding a space below that line keeps it from bleeding into the following paragraph.
Again, I do appreciate your work - I hope this helps clear up any misunderstandings!
Thank you for correcting the spelling mistakes on my pages, I will try to give more attention to spelling in my pages.

Hey Eo how can i insert photos?
I know i have to the source editor but after youre done editing there is a little icon in the Image area.
I try to upload but its hard.
You're right, "continues to repair itself" is fine too. What I thought was that I was technically using the infinitive form of repair, so the way I had it is still grammatically correct. The infinitive can be used, for example, after being introduced by a main verb and the word "to". E.g. "They refused to leave", and (so I thought), "we continued to repair". Anyway I could be wrong, English isn't my first language. Although I think people will still be able to pick up on what I meant either way. Thanks, Vandenhoek (talk) 05:06, July 18, 2018 (UTC)
my bad was just expanding the text in editor so i was constantly updating it so not intentional

Date format changes
Please stop changing the date formats in my articles. While month first dates are written with a comma, e.g. February 12, 2016, day-first dates, such as 12 February 2016, are not. It's quite irritating to change back, so please stop tampering with my articles. I already have a good handle on grammar, so I don't think I'll be needing an editor.
I'm not going to go through every single one of my articles to put in a special notice for you. That will be a waste of my time, and will add unnecessary clutter to my pages. However, what I will do is ask that you avoid all Joan of What? pages.

Just dropping by to thank you ^_^ I really appreciate your vigiliance; especially since my spell check misses things so often (like when I use words that sound alike but don't meant the same thing). I really am grateful for your service. Baron Joshua (talk) 21:56, August 16, 2018 (UTC)

If you are referring to The Great Peace page, I agree with your corrections and reverted them by mistake. My computer was acting slow during an edit conflict, hence the error.
Thanks, no one made me notice that on discord... oof
Usa election 1892
The number you changed in this article was not mean to be a decimal number. It is a hex code representing a color in the template. Please do not change it, it messes up the colors of my template.
Also from Wikipedia
“Referring to artillery, "caliber" is used to describe the barrel length as multiples of the bore diameter. A "5-inch 50 calibre" gun has a bore diameter of 5 in (12.7 cm) and a barrel length of 50 times 5 in = 250 in (6.35 m). The main guns of USS Missouri, an Iowa-class battleship, are 16" 50 caliber.”
If you were aware that "battlecruiser" is also correct then why are you changing it? Changing a correct word to an alternate spelling you prefer is not a spelling correction at that point. The page is named as that, it's spelled like that on the game page, and I already told you before not to add a space, so it's readily clear that no space is how it's supposed to be spelled. Using a space may be technically acceptable, but notice how it's essentially used only once on that entire Wikipedia page, and within the PM4 universe used zero times. In conclusion, please do not change the spelling of it in the future. Thanks, Vandenhoek (talk) 01:59, September 21, 2018 (UTC)
Dude, can you stop editing pages over things purposely typed the way they were? i mean, i typed japon instead of japan on purpose in the "twists and Turns" articles because it's supposed to be an alternate name for the country. so please, stop editing pointless stuff without my consent. it's pretty annoying.
Re: "Numbers between 1000 and 9999..."
I'm hoping we could clarify this issue, among others.
According to the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) Style Manual, U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) Style Manual, in Chapter 12, section 12.14:
The comma is used in a number containing four or more digits, except in serial numbers, common and decimal fractions, astronomical and military time, and kilocycles and meters of not more than four figures pertaining to radio.
The American Psychological Association also recommends using commas "to separate groups of three digits in most numbers of 1,000 or more."
The Modern Language Association - of which I am a member - uses commas in integers between 1,000 and 9,999 in its publications.
As I'm sure you're aware, much of the style of this wiki is based on Wikipedia, which also uses commas in integers between 1,000 and 9,999 in its articles. One such article is the page for Intertel - of which you claim to be a member. In the infobox on the page, it lists Intertel's membership as "1,300+." Indeed, on the group's website, it claims that "Since its founding in 1966, Intertel has grown to about 1,200 members."
At the time of writing this message, your profile notes that you have made "9,227" edits since joining this wiki.
I would also like to clarify a few other points about style:
- The U.S. Government Printing Office uses the abbreviation "U.S." for the United States, not "US"
- The MLA also notes "it is not incorrect to use U.S."
- The GPO also notes that a serial comma should be used "after each member within a series of three or more words, phrases, letters, or figures used with and, or, or nor."
- MLA publications - I have the May 2018 issue of PMLA in my hand - also use serial commas
While I may slip up on spelling or grammar from time to time - and appreciate any efforts on your part to fix those mistakes - the above topics are all points of style I have consciously chosen to use in my writing.
Great War Page
I was told that you wouldn't edit any pages that had a message at the top asking you not to edit it, so I'm wondering why you edited this page anyway despite the message at the top. Thanks, Vandenhoek (talk) 16:31, October 19, 2018 (UTC)
I've noticed a lot of people having to tell you to stop.
Here's a good indicator of if you should touch a page or not: If they've reverted your edits more than 3 times, good chance they don't want you to ever touch their articles again.
Actually I undid your edit for something unrelated to "led/lead". Unfortunately some corrects get lost when there are dozens of things you are changing. Vandenhoek (talk) 06:05, October 26, 2018 (UTC)

Please help fix some of the mistakes you have added
On several occasions (see here) I asked you not to change numbers to non-integers on list because it breaks the sorting on tables and lists. Can you please help undo your edits on pages such as this, and/or stop re-adding the mistake?
Second please stop changing the word "trade" to "trading". There are times where we wanted it to say "trade", and now you have mixed up which is supposed to be which.
Please stop removing commas from numbers. I don't see what the point of that is, it's just making it harder for me to read numbers and has caused a lot of confusion in one particular case.
What I asked was if you could just leave "trade post" when it says that, and also leave "trading post" when it says that. Both are correct and used by different people or to mean a different connotation, so please just leave both. Vandenhoek (talk) 23:45, November 13, 2018 (UTC)

EoGuy, as much as i like your contributions and grammar fixes, i don't think "neither" would fit, as i put "not either" which is close to like "neither", so i understand
What i don't understand is how does "up own their two feet" make sense to you. The original already makes sense because its proper.
Then again, i love your grammar fixes, but some don't really make sense
Don't hurt me for this please, i'm just saying
Its fine if you put "neither" as i see no "not neither" in it. Its perfectly fine.
However, the "up own their two feet" still doesn't make sense
Just a fix for correction.
"Enrollment" vs. "Enrolment"
In a couple articles of mine, you changed the spelling of "enrollment" to "enrolment." The former is the spelling used in General American English and is an acceptable variant spelling in Canadian English, while the latter is used in British English and is also an acceptable variant spelling in Canadian English.
I am an American, you are an American, and both the articles you edited were about Americans. If you have a reason why you believe that the British spelling should be used in my articles about Americans - despite "enrollment" being a perfectly valid spelling in General American - please feel free to share it with me. I'm at a loss as to where you're getting your proofreading choices from, since they're often contradicted by this wiki, Wikipedia, and Intertel, and are at odds with you using any single manual of style.
While I'm on your talk page, let's look at some statistics:
- In 2018 alone, there are forty-four separate posts - including this one - on your talk page.
- Twenty-three of them are some variation of telling you "Please stop making unnecessary edits." This is the largest type of post on your talk page for this year, comprising 52.27% of all posts on the page.
- Eleven are saying "Thanks!" for your corrections. This grouping comprises just over a quarter of all posts on the page, or 25.58%.
- The remaining ten - comprising 22.15% - don't fit into either category.
Here's a bar graph of this data:
Since there are forty-four posts over a period of nearly eleven months, there have been, on average, four posts per month on your talk page, or once a week. This also means, on average, that someone has made a post telling you to stop making unnecessary edits more than twice a month, every month.
If you're looking for a New Year's resolution for 2019, please consider trying to make the people on every wiki to which you contribute less upset about your editing choices.
It's not that I don't want you to correct any posts of mine at all - it's that you're confusing stylistic choices with errors, and it's frustrating many people on this wiki, myself included.
If I make a spelling mistake, feel free to correct it. All I'm asking is that you don't change American spellings to British spellings, or change valid spellings or stylistic choices into different spellings or stylistic choices that you prefer. If someone lets you know how they prefer their pages, please take it into account.
Thanks again! I hope you're having better weather in Arizona than here in Chicago.
I'm going to ask this here and now - again, since the last time you didn't seem to actually acknowledge my requests.
Please do not edit my pages, at all. I'm sick to death of editing a page only to lose a good minute or so of work when the page refuses to update, only to find that it's because you decided to place a capital letter at the front of a word or removed a space. It isn't helpful, it isn't welcome and it comes off as petty.
I understand that you think you're helping and I appreciate that, but it is a tad frustrating to have one's work constantly fiddled with in a manner that more often than not causes editing conflicts and can affect stylistic choices in the phrasing or presentation of a sentence or even an entire article.

I'm at a loss as to how I could possibly have been more clear: I do not appreciate you editing my pages to "fix" mistakes that are not actually mistakes to begin with.
You keep saying that you'll refrain from "fixing" my pages, and you keep failing to actually do so. I'm not the only one on this site who has asked you repeatedly about this, yet you have repeatedly ignored our requests.
If you're absolutely compelled to edit text of any kind, feel free to get a copy of War and Peace and go to town with a red pen and some white-out.
About you quitting...
Hey man, just wanna say that I don’t think you should quit, the guy’s turn you were editing has many spelling mistakes and grammar mistakes because he isn’t a native English speaker and I believe his phone doesn’t correct any spelling mistakes as it isn’t set to English or whatever. If you want to quit that’s fine, but personally I don’t think you should quit as you do a lot of good for this community.

Do not edit Joan of What? articles
I asked you a year ago and you still have not stopped making unsolicited "corrections" to my articles. Most recently I saw that in May you converted all my written numbers ("fifty") to numerals ("50") on this page. If I wrote it out, I did so for a reason, and your conversions are not wanted, and frankly, nor are they welcome. This is a pattern that I have noticed across a number of my articles, which means you have either conveniently forgotten my previous request, or you are wilfully ignoring it. Either way, it does not matter. I ask, and I hope for the last time, that you stop making edits of any kind to any articles under the Joan of What? category. If there is anything in my writing that you absolutely cannot tolerate, please inform me, and I will fix it myself if I concur with that assessment.

Absolutely not! I am not responsible for your remembering, so I refuse to put this notice on hundreds of articles just so you stay off of them. You asked me to do exactly the same thing a year ago and you're getting the same answer this time. Avoiding an entire timeline of articles really isn't too much to ask: just check the title! — THE TIM TAM IS MY SPIRIT ANIMAL (TSW • AH • MGW • Contribs) 01:54, August 12, 2019 (UTC)
I can't believe I have to spell it out for you. Please do not edit any article with "(Joan of What?)" in its title! I thought that was intuitive enough from my messages last year, let alone this thread! — THE TIM TAM IS MY SPIRIT ANIMAL (TSW • AH • MGW • Contribs) 03:59, August 12, 2019 (UTC)
If you want to add anything to the cook county papers go ahead
Do not edit Premysloides Dynasty articles
Your editing is maybe honest, but aside of gramatical correction, you are doing stylistic "corrections" which I disagree, like changing % to percent. Sometimes, your editing conflicting with my ongoing editation and I had to rewrite article.Adam100 (talk) 09:46, August 28, 2019 (UTC)
I'm simply an admin for this particular Wiki. I don't have the power to remove your account if that's truly what you want. You'd need to contact Wikia or something.
- To be fair, I'm very sick of all this negativity myself. We're both wearing big targets, you know?
- If you'd like, you can add me on Discord so we can talk about all of this. Might do us both some good to have a friendly voice. Up to you. -- NuclearVacuum 02:17, September 9, 2019 (UTC)
I was doing edits and typed out a large amount of information. Unbeknownst to me there was someone else editing my page at the same time. I tried to save my edits, which was a substantial amount of typed up information, and it refused to save it because EoGuy99 was editing my page simultaneously. Is there any way to prevent this from happening?
No need to retrieve the info now, I retyped all of it.
I might ask though to refrain from editing? I see that mostly it is spacing. Which is fine, though it can impede my work (such as the above, not allowing me to save my edits because you're fixing spacing). Again, I don't mind the editing for spacing at all, only the risk of losing my own work.
The other edit - spelling - can be a nuisance. For example, Libia is spelled that way intentionally in my TL. To have it fixed to Libya can be a bother. Things of that nature. As has been pointed out, not all TLs follow the proper American-English spelling that the real world does, so it might be best to check before changing things.
Update 10/15: no, the dates do not need to be changed. 2550 should not be 'corrected' to 1550. I will notice that in most places dates are listed they are listed as AUC. So, for example, AUC 2550. This is Ab Urbe Condita. The AUC dating system and the Chinese Lunar dating system are the two principal dating systems in this ATL. The Gregorian calendar is not in widespread use and therefore it is not the dating system shown on the wiki.
In short, the date is correct as AUC 2550 and should not be altered to be 1550 AD.
Thanks for your contributions to the wiki. I think you would like to see this.
Lichtensteig =/= Lichtenstein
Lichtensteig is the correct spelling of the name of a town in Switzerland, so please don't correct that to Lichtenstein which is an entirely different location. 77topaz (talk) 02:43, March 9, 2020 (UTC)
