Friendly Warning

Hi Dannyboy. I noticed you have already got into revert wars with a couple of users, demanding answers from other contributors, request for adminship and nominating yourself for Uncyclopedian of the month. And you're Scottish. OK, I will leave that last bit to one side but I don't think you quite know how it works here. Improving existing articles is a good idea but just adding random lines isn't. Try working on your own article first, what ever interests you. Look around the forums and get a better idea how we interact here. Thanks. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 23:03, December 9, 2012 (UTC)

Do it! A three-day ban just for being Scottish! Set a precedent! Spıke Ѧ 23:13 9-Dec-12
No Scotch egg for you Spike. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 23:41, December 9, 2012 (UTC)
That is the yolk I will bear. Spıke Ѧ 00:49 10-Dec-12

O Dannyboy, please don't mind the banter. We are a bantering crew. Playing the Uncy game provides a very nice learning curve, and the more you write the better you will get. And learning the culture here takes awhile, especially if you don't have a degree in human psychology and pathology. We all welcome you with open arms. All eight of them, if you happen to meet our resident octopus. Good to meet you. Aleister 00:16 11Decem12

But Paul the Octopus is dead. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 23:37, December 12, 2012 (UTC)


I reverted your addition, "Despite what the rest of the article says, Glasgow is a very nice place to live in. Just ignore this article, except for my bit." This isn't funny, and certainly not funny enough to break the "encyclopedia" format and talk about yourself. Express your opinions about an article on the talk page, please, not by typing them into the text of the article! Spıke Ѧ 21:34 12-Dec-12


May you either adopt me or find me a mentor? Dannyboy1209 (talk) 17:54, December 13, 2012 (UTC)

I have a watch on this page and Romartus and I have an eye on your edits. I have not undertaken to adopt (here or in Real Life) as it implies a primary role in guiding your development. Nor do I know who is the right match for you, as all I know is that you are Scottish, and you already hit up the only other Scot I know on the website whom I know is a Scot. Edit carefully, though, as Kelton2, another user I have been trying to gently guide to the good side of the humor Force, was just given the weekend off with prejudice. Spıke Ѧ 18:11 13-Dec-12
I can adopt you Dannyboy1209 but I am English. Would that be a problem? --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 19:44, December 13, 2012 (UTC)
They have their own Parliament now, y'know. Spıke Ѧ 21:02 13-Dec-12
And speaking of self-promotion, Danny's second attempt at self-nomination (this time to NotM) was correctly reverted by Kamek98. Always read the rules for nominating first; this page clearly says no one can nominate himself. Also: Always avoid violating the rules once you have read them. Spıke Ѧ 21:12 13-Dec-12
I'll nominate you again Dannyboy.--SirPeasewhizzdeNewYork Click here to talk 21:15, December 13, 2012 (UTC)
Symbol for vote Revert + Nominate. That's full service. Spıke Ѧ 21:41 13-Dec-12
I may be adopted by Romartus Dannyboy1209 (talk) 21:17, December 13, 2012 (UTC)
Your adoption papers have been signed. Now DB, can you stop nominating yourself for awards? That is twice you have done this. If you have any questions, leave them on my talk page. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 07:31, December 14, 2012 (UTC)


Have been away for a very long time just wanted to say hello. as i plan on a more active future once again. ( basically i was bored and wanted to invade a random talk page so greetings all the same. hope to see some really funny writes from you.   The* Lordarcadiansig (say shit) (My train wrecks) Π   ~ 

Greetings Lordarcadian. I find the excuse 'I was bored' or 'I was drunk' as a prelude to some pretty terrible behavior. Also this is Dannyboy1209's talk page and he is a noob around here. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 07:34, December 14, 2012 (UTC)

User Page

I saw you got reverted adding stuff to another contributor's user page. That space is for the person who has the account. If they want you to add anything there, then you have run that past them first. In this case Silent Penguin is not so active. I might add your user page can be changed by an admin if for any reason it is deemed what you have put there is inappropriate (i.e. shock images, porn and cyberbullying) - though you will receive an explanation why that was done. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 11:38, December 19, 2012 (UTC)


Why do my edits keep getting reverted? Dannyboy1209 (talk) 17:56, February 4, 2013 (UTC)

Perhaps because they weren't good? I see that you have made only one edit in the last month and a half; that was to Nutella, an article that at the time was the featured article. Your edit took a list and made it longer, by specifying that Nutella contains hazelnuts, a statement that is as true as it is unfunny and I reverted you myself. Mystery solved! Spıke Ѧ 18:06 4-Feb-13
Know what? Your edit just now to The Simpsons is unfunny too! Spıke Ѧ 20:32 5-Feb-13
Perhaps it would be in my best interest, Mr Spike, to know exactly how you define the word "funny", when my edits are clearly my attempts at humour. Why can I not be taken seriously enough to have my sense of humour well understood. I ask you please, to define the necessary methods which I must use in order to meet you definition of the word "funny"? Dannyboy1209 (talk) 20:37, February 5, 2013 (UTC)
I quote: "Despite its issues, the show is not as low quality as some might suggest." Fill me in: Where's the yucks? Spıke Ѧ 20:51 5-Feb-13
I have a very limited grasp of humour. reveal to me, now, how I can improve how funny my edits are Dannyboy1209 (talk) 20:52, February 5, 2013 (UTC)
We have a handy Guide on that very topic, despite the insulting name of How To Be Funny And Not Just Stupid. It's easy to read and you'll learn a lot. Spıke Ѧ 21:07 5-Feb-13
I guess you didn't. Because now at Handgun, at the end of a paragraph full of untrue statements written for irony, you add: "It is very easy to obtain." If it is untrue, then it simply restates the joke told earlier. However--especially in the U.S. Congress right now--some believe it is true, which means the addition is completely out of character for the paragraph. In either case, you come to a paragraph that someone has built for a specific effect, and deposit droppings on it. Spıke Ѧ 22:09 5-Feb-13
Handgun was also a featured article and post-editing isn't encouraged unless the original author needs to improve grammar, clarity and comprehension that are not part of the 'joke'. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 22:39, February 5, 2013 (UTC)
Why exactly can my edits be thought of as being unfunny? It is not fair, I am new here, to delete my first attempts at editing. In no way shall I consider this to be a threat, but next time, behave please! Dannyboy1209 (talk) 14:39, February 6, 2013 (UTC)
I told you in detail why I considered several specific edits unfunny. I told you, above, where to look to learn more about writing funny stuff. It has nothing to do with fairness and it is nothing personal. It is not about YOU at all, but about the reader. Now please dispense with the talk of threats. Spıke Ѧ 15:00 6-Feb-13
And I do not consider it funny, either, going to Angry Birds and appending to a paragraph, "Quite boring." I have sent a note home to your adopted parent. It is time for you to read rather than write. Spıke Ѧ 15:57 6-Feb-13

Attempted edit at Water Dannyboy1209 (talk) 21:26, February 10, 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, but the joke you told already has a whole article on it, at Dihydrogen monoxide. You could at least link to that. I just had a little argument on that article's talk page. 22:37 PS--Snippy reverted your edit, with no prompting from me, but I concur. Let it go. Spıke Ѧ 23:25 10-Feb-13

Hello Hello Hello

Hi DB. Can I advise you to work on your own article first before adding a lot of unfunny elsewhere? Others have already pointed you to the guides we have here. It's easier to start on your own article on a sub page which I advise you to try before adding a few words here or there to an article. I will overlook your 'behave' comment which I presume was addressed to me - for now. I am not expecting anyone newish here to get the hang of this site or produce a brilliant article on your first go. So take this as your last 'advisory' about behavior will you and then everyone can get on fine. Thanks. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 16:58, February 6, 2013 (UTC)
