    It it too early to block him. He has actually figured out templating and other things that Jonathan never did or could. They actually editted simultaneously a time or two.

    • I hope you're right TR. Let's just hope Matthew and Jonathan are two different people who just know each other and are friends and are not the same person. Let us just keep our eyes out just to be on the safe side. JCC the Alternate Historian (talk) 15:00, May 4, 2019 (UTC)

    • It may be, but I don't think we want Jonathan's friends here either, at least not those who behave in a similar fashion. Just have to wait awhile I guess--but let's not let this one get away.

  • Just F.Y.I., I have found that using the "revert" command seems to rollback all changes for the particular editor until it reaches someone else's edits. For instance Ariovistus was reverted back to TR's edits in July 2016 eliminating categories added in the interim by Johnathan that were appropriate. I find I get better control if I use the history comparisons and then press the "Undo" button when I find the changes that I want to eliminate. ML4E (talk) 20:14, November 13, 2018 (UTC)

    • Ah, thanks.

      I don't know why but I was expecting categories to be bracketed at the bottom like they used to be. And Jonathan had fucked with the templates, so it took me a bit of trial and error to figure out how to clean up after him.

      And I really was in a hurry to hit him with the banstick. Sure is peaceful without him, isn't it?

  • Oh dear, I only realised just now that I forgot to thank you for your kinds words, SJ.  Thanks again man.  I don't want you to think that I'd completely forgotten about you, Mysterious Slade Person.

    • Hey, no problem. I'm sorry you won't be around anymore, but you've got to do what you've got to do. That's what I found when I gave up on Doctor Who. Turtle Fan (talk) 07:07, April 30, 2016 (UTC)

  • Lord Goliath is a redirect to the "Occupation Duty" sub-section of the Goliath article. I think the half dozen redirects for Philistines is idiotic but the "Lord Goliath" is clever.ML4E (talk) 21:16, February 21, 2016 (UTC)

    • The Philistinia(n)(s) stuff is unique to this story as well, making a convenient redirect.

    • Jonathan: Not so, he held a title in OTL too.

      ML4E: Well if you don't mind. I guess I was hasty. Every time Jonathan learns a new trick (adding categories, uploading images, now making redirects) he completely overdoes it. So when I saw this, I figured we should try to nip it in the bud.

  • nice to see the wiki still going strong.  I used to edit here back in 2007-2008 but then left for grad school (and weirdly enough now am a professor at a university mentioned in Southern Victory).  Hope all's going well!

    • Hey Elefuntboy, I remember you! I'm very pleased to hear that you've made good for yourself. I'm not sure whether you're looking to get back into editing for us full time (we could not be happier to have you if that's the case) so either welcome back or thanks for dropping by, whichever is appropriate. :)

    FYI, TF, I just found out that Eric Flint had dabbled in the retro-Mars genre:

  • Kind of crudely done TL-191 trailer like that Euroman guy who we used to make fun of did. Funny but possibly a waste of time to watch.

  • SJ it's the Donut, I was just looking back through the Better Board Wiki and laughing out loud at the article that you posted on Abraham Beame years ago. The link's broken so i'll post the text here.


    Abraham Beame

    [1][2]Abraham Beame (1906-2001) is the worst mayor in the history of New York. Under his mayorship the city's standard of living was badly denigrated by Beame's myopic obsession with culture, which led him to abandon his duties as executive of the city government, head of law enforcement, budget planner et cetera to work full-time as the booking agent at the club CBGB, or, according to The Simpsons, Comic Book Guy's Bar. The disastrous cultural renaissance to which Beame subjected New York continued to cause bankruptcy, crime, and urban blight until Rudy Giulianni boldly shut down every museum, gallery, auction house, theater, concert hall, library, and bookstore in New York City.

    Donutrevolutionary had an infatuation with this mayor.

    • Ah yes, I remember that. You called Giulianni a destroyer of culture or something like that and contrasted him with Beame--who really was a corrupt creep, by the way. I was sure you were wrong and looked for data to prove it, such as comparative numbers of art exhibits and theater productions to open and close in NYC during their respective administrations. No source to which I had easy access kept such information, so I wrote the above instead. That really was a useful Wiki. Turtle Fan (talk) 22:04, December 3, 2012 (UTC)

    • It was, all the inside jokes still give me a good laugh. Since I like to laugh at myself the Anti-Donut Bias still tickles me. I think I called Beame "the greatest mayor of New York" but was never really serious about it. Was just my affinity for the punk rock scene in New York at the time, not that there's any connection between the two. That would admittedly be like praising LBJ or Nixon because a lot of great rock came out when they were in charge.
