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.

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.

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)
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.Stepintime (talk) 05:07, May 29, 2018 (UTC)
