Hello Fixer (very appropriate name),

Thank you for your amazing help.

--Lonny 10:20, 20 July 2008 (PDT)

Thanks from me too! --Chriswaterguy 07:24, 26 July 2008 (PDT)

Thanks again![edit]

I didn't find out till hours later, so it was great to see that you'd long since fixed it. Much appreciated! --Chriswaterguy 12:02, 25 September 2008 (PDT)

Appropriate Name[edit]

Hi Fixer,

Thanks yet again for this (and previous) fixes to Appropedia. Your work in both spam/vandalism mitigation and page/community building are notable and awesome. Your handle suits your actions well.

Thank you, --Lonny 09:54, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

Hi Fixer,
Yet again. Thank you!

And again, thank you! --Chriswaterguy 14:23, 21 September 2010 (UTC)

Welcome to adminship! Thanks for the enduring support! CurtB 06:32, 14 January 2011 (PST)

And off to a good start in adminship - blocking spammers already. Thank you. --Chriswaterguy 08:05, 14 January 2011 (PST)

Blocking Anon Spammer[edit]

Hi Fixer,

We generally don't block IPs for longer than a day or three, because: 1) we don't want to accidentally block the next person logged in from that IP, 2) Spammers rotate IPs, 3) It seems to work fine doing it that way.

We are working on getting the random spam, back down again... I think we will have it fixed in the next couple of days.

Thanks, --Lonny 15:45, 15 January 2011 (PST)

Gnome tasks[edit]

Your user page mentions wikignome tasks, with a {{W}} link. There is also a local page (Appropedia:Gnome tasks) you could link to. --Teratornis 11:39, 27 January 2011 (PST)

Thanks USER TALK: Spectra Nova Openings and Appropedia Introductions[edit]

Dear Fixer,

Thanks for the marvellous openings and Appropedia introductions/virtual tour guide you provided for User Spectra Nova. Apprepreciate you much to God! Looking forward to a great time on Appropedia, already feeling like the right spot to be!

Inappropriate pages[edit]

hello fixer someone is sending really bad pages that may harm appropedia reputation, i think you should give them a look and delete them, at this time we have one at the top of newest articles.


Links within a chart[edit]

Hello Fixer,

Thanks for your recent help with an appropedia page I am working on. I was hoping you could help me with another issue I have. I am having trouble inserting links in a chart I made in the page Waste plastic extruder. The URLs are present in my wiki code, but links don't appear in the chart. Your help is much appreciated.

Also, I'm fairly new to wiki and not sure what the etiquette is.. is it ok to make requests like this? If not I apologize, thanks for all your work.

User: CBaechler

Thanks! worked perfectly. And thanks for the support.

spam blacklist[edit]

Thanks for all the spam fighting, yet again. Good work. I noticed the recent stream all contained the same domain, so I blocked it on MediaWiki:Spam-blacklist. You can edit it too if need be - a little bit geeky, but hopefully it's self explanatory. --Chriswaterguy 11:18, 27 May 2011 (PDT)

I certainly would be open to that. Many thanks. MarkDilley

Checking some pages...[edit]

Hi Fixer - thanks again for the great work on spam.

I'm wondering - are you interested in checking over some pages, to see if they're suitable for Appropedia mainspace? Original_environment_rehabilitation_manual. Most or all is the work of one person, so it's good to have another set of eyes on it - but I'm not able to make the time right now. Is looking over some of those pages something that interests you?

With some other pages, I've userfied them (suppressing the redirect. They can always be moved back if they're made suitable. (Not perfect, just dealing with key errors.) Seems like a good approach for good-faith-but-problematic content.

But if it's not your cup of tea, no problem... let me know what you think. --Chriswaterguy 09:18, 7 March 2012 (PST)

Breast pump[edit]

Your thoughts on Talk:Printable Breast Pump#Warning warning would be appreciated - thanks. --Chriswaterguy 23:32, 29 May 2012 (PDT)

How to deal with problematic content[edit]

I made some changes to Safety of energy sources‎ and commented on the discussion page. I also posted to When is a page unsuitable for Appropedia? - partly to see if we can liven the list up. I hope we can accommodate both your concerns about crappy content and my desire to have a process of posing important questions and "debugging" the answers till we come up with something really valuable and solid. (I.e. I want us to have our cake and eat it...) --Chriswaterguy 10:55, 19 June 2012 (PDT)

I've listed the talk page at Appropedia:Village pump #Talk page discussions. I won't remove the deletion tag without giving plenty of chance to respond to the case I've made. Beyond that, I'd really like to see the Safety of energy sources‎ page evolve further. --Chriswaterguy 05:41, 23 October 2012 (PDT)

How goes it?[edit]

Hi Fixer, haven't seen you in months - I hope all is well with you! --Chriswaterguy 19:30, 9 March 2013 (PST)

Hello again, and thanks for the spam-killing. --Chriswaterguy (talk) 06:30, 29 April 2014 (PDT)
