(spam) You signed up for wikipedia.meetup.com, and I was wondering if you were interested in the forthcoming London meet. I know it's a bit of a stretch from Bristol way, but in case you didn't know... Martin 20:52, 14 Apr 2004 (UTC)
Rob, I was surprised someone who has been here as long as you was not a sysop. Hopefully you won't mind that I have nominated you at Wikipedia:Requests for adminship. Angela. 10:40, Apr 29, 2004 (UTC)
Your views are required on Talk:Conservative Party (UK), as way back when, when we looked at the official party names you supported the use of the definite article. I would not be offended if you argued against me, if your opinion had changed. Mintguy (T) 09:05, 4 May 2004 (UTC)
Thanks very much for spotting my incredible Hendry/Byers "typo" at Jo Moore. I couldn't help but burst out laughing at my own daftness when I saw your summary appear on my watchlist! I fear what Freud would've made of it all!
I couldn't drum up much enthusiasm to write about Moore, especially since the incident is already recounted in Byers' article, but it was the very last red link on 100 Worst Britons, so I had to do it. Pete/Pcb21 (talk) 23:03, 5 May 2004 (UTC)
Congratulations! You are now an administrator. You should read the relevant policies and other pages linked to from the administrators' reading list before carrying out tasks like deletion, protection, banning users, and editing protected pages such as the Main Page. Most of what you do is easily reversible by other sysops, apart from page history merges and image deletion, so please be especially careful with those. Good luck. Angela. 23:54, May 6, 2004 (UTC)
Hi RB these were the words that came up and i am still banned:
Forbidden You were denied access because: Access denied by access control list.
Also i decided to remove my user page info because i don't want it there as it has personal information about me, Andy Mabbet (sic) has reverted this information which surely is a violation of vandelising a members user page, sorry to drag you into this but i am finding wikipedia extremely corrupt and quite eliteist amongts some of the members, i joined on the advice of angela who has been really helpfull but one person is seriously trying his hardest to pester me and hope i go away, if i stop responding it will mean that this address is blocked as well, i don't really know what else to do, the majority on the page voted for Nick Mason to stay as you can read but one person refuses to accept this, please can you help me as i don't wish to draw angela into this, i simply don't wish for my information to be on my user page as it is personal and i didn't realise how petty certain users could be... Thanks in anticipation?
- the majority on the page voted for Nick Mason to stay - there was no such vote, and no such majority (if I'm wrong, let's see some evidence). Andy Mabbett 19:18, 31 May 2004 (UTC)
After you made the mention of Resonance FM I had made in the article about The Wire a link "just in case" I decided to go ahead and create the article. I would be grateful if you could take a look at the article for me since it is my first new article here on Wikipedia and I wouldn't be surprised if I have made some glaring errors. Thanks! :-) --Nicholas Lativy 17:16, 22 Jul 2004 (UTC)
Clifton C. img
Rob, your photo is indeed better - I took mine from the east to get the name on the wall included (and failed because I couldn't get a wide enough shot), but managed only to get the whole thing as a silhouette! Next time I'm up there I may try again at getting the angle right, but for now we should definitely stick with yours --Steinsky 14:26, 2 Aug 2004 (UTC)
Bristol collaboration / featured article
Hi Rob, I was wondering what you thought of trying to get somewhere local up to standard for a possible featured article, I was thinking maybe Bristol Harbour might make an interesting featured page one day. I'll crosspost this to Arpingstone as well. --Joe D 21:43, 11 Oct 2004 (UTC)
