edit Fritz Lang, Akira Kursowa

Two of my favorite directors, own 2 by Lang and i don't know how many by Kurosawa. I'm glad you made articles for these two heroes of mine, they deserve it; I came through by making a crappy Hayao Miyazaki article, but whatever... What's the deal with Mad Max 4?? I've been getting teased around by all those news feeds saying it's going to happen and then 2 weeks later they said George Miller got bored and instead made a movie about penguins. --AmericanBastard 22:13, 17 February 2007 (UTC)


AmericanBastard shows his appreciation for your contributions to a curiously inept article, HowTo:Be Random, by awarding you with a firm hand shake. --AmericanBastard 22:29, 8 June 2007 (UTC)

edit USA

Nope, that's brilliant, nicely done, cheers. -- Prof. Olipro Icons-flag-gb KUN (W)Anchor Op Bur. (Harass) 06:40, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

edit Thank you

Thank you very much for redirecting Mormon to Mormons. That page had been needing it for a long time. Necropaxx (T) {~}

edit Attention!!!!

This has been overlooked for far too long. I hereby raise you to the rank of Captain, through the powers granted to me by the International Regulating Committee. Feel free to sew your insignia into all of your clothing, including socks, so that it may be easier to identify your corpse later on.

How you've been passed over for Admin rank for the last year and half I haven't the foggiest idea? I think you were actually nommed for it at the same time as me! :) At least you know that not everyone is blind to the amount of work you get through. -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)

Wow, thanks. :) MadMax 12:55, 29 May 2007 (UTC)
HOLY CRAP! You're doing all kinds of good deeds around here. Users that work hard are what make Uncyclopedia work. Here's another useless award. Cheers.--<<Bradmonogram.png>> 18:15, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

edit Sockpuppet Categories

Hi.....Not sure if you noticed but Codeine deleted a lot of the Sockpuppet categories earlier today, as we're not overkeen on people stroking their egos through the site. I think we're probably going to have to make a decision on this at some point soon. -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)

edit I'm terribly sorry!

For a few minutes I accidentally thought you were a vandal. I was a little surprised to learn that the exact opposite was true, given a few misinterpretations of your recent edits, but that doesn't matter. I'm terribly sorry, please accept this as a token of... apology? It isn't much, but it's the most an insignificant normal user like myself can offer.

edit Amy Winehouse

Hey please could you tell me how you changed her surname to a capital W thanks. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Inya (talk • contribs)

  • Above every article are six tabs (article, discussion, edit, history, move and watch). To change the name of an article, just click on the "move" tab to make the appropriate corrections. MadMax 23:33, 8 June 2007 (UTC)
  • Thanks for that  :)
No problem. MadMax 04:17, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

edit NoooOOOOoooooooo

Say it ain't so. -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)

This event brings me much woe as well. Why why why?! --Littleboyonly TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly 00:02, 13 June 2007 (UTC)

And about bloody time too....this place has been up to its eyes without you. -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)
I'll get right to work then. Lol. MadMax 23:26, 18 June 2007 (UTC)

edit About things like...

this. Don't bother. It just bumps a dead forum up to the top for no good reason. Every time you update a dead forum an angel loses its wings. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 22:38, 19 June 2007 (UTC)

This too. That two angels you've killed now. --AAA! (AAAA) 23:14, 19 June 2007 (UTC)
Everytime an Angel dies, MadMax gets a new pair of wings, and he does look magnificent in feathers. -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)

Sorry, I didn't realize that. Should links to deleted articles, templates, etc. stay red links or should they be redirected somewhere such as UN:CVP or UN:CRP for example ? MadMax 09:08, 20 June 2007 (UTC)

I'd let the admins deal with CVPs if I were you, but you can redirect a page to CRP if it is being vandalised repeatedly. If a non-existent page has multiple redlinks, I would either redirect it to a similar title, or just leave it as it is if there is no similar title. Anyway, thanks for all the hard work. I used to work nearly as hard as you, but then I got bored. Icons-flag-au Sir Cs1987 UOTM. t. c 06:57, 28 June 2007 (UTC)
Lol. Thanks, I appreciate the help. MadMax 07:05, 28 June 2007 (UTC)

edit Thanks!

for tinkering with History of Woman. Well, it's more than tinkering, must have taken you a good while. Mostly it is an improvement, allthough on my screeen, Boudicca now halfway overlays the box with the content headings. I guess it is just very hard to get a layout that works on every screen configuration. But thanks again. Pieface 16:21, 26 June 2007 (UTC)

Your welcome. Actually it did take some time, mostly with trying to make the various images consistant with the article, although I hadn't noticed the Boudica image. I'll move it down slightly if that makes a difference ? MadMax 07:05, 28 June 2007 (UTC)
Thanks for moving it down, but it didn't help (much). I will tinker with it. Thanks again for your help.Pieface 07:35, 28 June 2007 (UTC)
Hmm..its a bit difficult as it appears normally on my screen so I can't tell wiether my changes are better or worse. Please feel free to make any changes you can to improve it however. MadMax 07:41, 28 June 2007 (UTC)

edit ....thanks

If I wanted a user page, don't you think I'd have created it? You used an information tag that was blatently false to make a page I was deliberately leaving non-existant. ....well done. MaxMangel 15:12, 28 June 2007 (UTC)

Yah! Everybody wins.... -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)

edit Category

Thanks for this. I don't think I've ever made a category before, so this has never come up. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 19:59, 29 June 2007 (UTC)

edit You're a mad janitor

And mad janitors need an award

Also, a word about the {{talkheader}}. What's the purpose for that one? It takes away the lovely chaos of the talk pages....~Jewriken.GIF 09:13, 3 July 2007 (UTC)

Well, originally it was to get the unused Template talk pages off the wanted articles list, although I thought it was a logical add on for the {{oldvfd}} template and would hopefully prevent flame wars on certain controversal pages. It also displays the top headers correctly (== == as opposed to === ===). Although if you think it just clutters up the talk pages, I can remove it from those pages with out the {{oldvfd}} template. Thanks for the award by the way. :) MadMax 22:41, 3 July 2007 (UTC)

edit Thanks

Thanks for formatting my article, i see why you did it, it looks much better that way :) Hiimcody1 07:34, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

Glad I could help. MadMax 07:35, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

Although, it did worry me a bit when i found that this article was blank, after doing research i see why lol

Yeah, you'd really be suprised how many times an article has been recreated. MadMax 07:41, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

edit I resent this label

You labeled the talk page of my pet article and masterpiece as a recent VFD. However, only the original American article was so nominated. After that page lost out, my own article, American (species) was used to replace it and was accordingly moved to that page name. Since my article was clearly not the one up for deletion, I resent the label you put on the talk page. While my article was clearly not good enough to be nominated, there was no indication that it was bad enough to be deleted, and I resent it being so associated with any such label.

Having explained my reasons, may I remove that label on the talk page? Humble Acolyte of Humor, Radioactive afikomen 22:12, 9 July 2007 (UTC)

Sorry, I hadn't realized the page had been moved. I've removed the oldvfd tag and my apologies for the misunderstanding. MadMax 23:53, 9 July 2007 (UTC)

Thank you. Radioactive afikomen 00:11, 10 July 2007 (UTC)

edit VFD kept articles

Please see discussion Marking the Survivors near the bottom of the VFD talk page; your name came up and I want to make sure we have everything straight before proceeding any further. Sir Roger 14:31, 11 July 2007 (UTC)

Yes, I have been working on tagging former VFD article for a few weeks now. I imported the {{oldvfd}} template from Wikipedia and have used it along with {{talkheader}}. Along with User:Insineratehymn, we've both been taging most of the VFD articles between 2006-2007 although its a bit more difficult going through the earlier archives given a lot of articles have been deleted and recreated several times. I hadn't realized anyone else had been working on a similar issue, however your recent list is both impressive and extremely helpful. Here is a list of articles I've already placed a template. If there's anything I can do, please let me know. MadMax 06:42, 12 July 2007 (UTC)

My list only goes back to late April 2006. I have listed which articles I've tagged with oldvfd on my list. Sometimes there's ambiguity as to whether articles were voted kept or not, so you may want to tag some I haven't. Also, I haven't been putting the talkheaders on. But hopefully I've helped somewhat. Sir Roger 11:04, 12 July 2007 (UTC)

edit Category:QVFD

This category is pretty much deprecated now, as we have realised that the easiest way to QVFD pages is just to link to them on the QVFD page, and forget about templates, categories etc. Actually, you probably don't need to know that, since you almost certainly will be an admin by next month, and you will be able to delete such pages on sight. Anyway, I just thought it would speed things up a bit if you stopped adding pages to this category. Icons-flag-au Sir Cs1987 UOTM. t. c 13:39, 13 July 2007 (UTC)

I didn't realize I was actually being considered, nor did I realize how many people knew who I was nevermind who would be in favor of it. :) Although if only two can make the cut, I really don't mind if someone else wants it. MadMax 21:33, 27 July 2007 (UTC)

edit Vote

Are you aware of the discussion and vote here: Forum:Why do we need a Talk Page Header? Sir Roger 01:16, 14 July 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know. I certainly didn't intend for all the trouble or that that it would be so widely used. I've hopefully given a somewhat reasonable explanation and of course ceased using the template. MadMax 21:26, 27 July 2007 (UTC)

edit Oldvfd

OK, all the stuff on my list is tagged with oldvfd, and mostly with the talkheader (which I stopped due to the discussion and vote). I'm retiring from this chore as of archive 80. Sir Roger 01:11, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

I certainly appreciate your help. I've been tagging the most recent ones, although I'll be on the lookout for any missed articles. MadMax 21:22, 27 July 2007 (UTC)

edit Backlog Question

What's your backlog subpage all about? -- Kip > Talk Works Puzzle Potato Dry Brush CUN Icons-flag-us

Well, about a year and a half ago all the special pages (effecting all Wikis I believe) became cached and were updated every 24 hours. One of the problems with this is that with over 1000+ entries it's impossible to sort out what has been deleted, unorphaned, categorized, etc. I also put articles which have been ICU'd so I can wait seven days before linking them. Otherwise I'm just creating more red links for the Wanted page. I suppose I should have left a summery, however I didn't think anyone would find it. :) MadMax 19:40, 28 July 2007 (UTC)

edit Congrats

On that whole admin thing. Don't go mad with your moderate amount of power. A coup is out of the question. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 02:19, 1 August 2007 (UTC)

Congratulations, MadMax! You were nominated for sysop before those you were up against had even registered, even when you were an IP, we knew you were special. Glad to have you as a member of the adminatti. Dawg.gif » Brig Sir Dawg | t | v | c » 2007.08.01.02:41

Thanks, I hadn't known I'd even been nominated until a few days ago and was a bit suprised, especially from the overwelming support. I hope I can make myself a bit more useful from now on. :) MadMax 03:59, 1 August 2007 (UTC)
And widen your lead as already the most-useful user on Uncyc? Congrats, there's nobody I'd trust more with admin powers. —rc (t) 04:58, 1 August 2007 (UTC)
Congrats. You and SbU will make great sysop's. --Dexter111344 06:34, 1 August 2007 (UTC)
That certainly means a lot, thanks. MadMax 21:05, 17 August 2007 (UTC)

Right back at you MadMax. I did wonder if you would have noticed the nom, off in your own little categorising world, but I thought, nah... that's just crazy thinking.  :-) That must have been quite some surprise! In some ways I'd rather I hadn't realised myself: I've been on the edge of my seat for half the month wondering if I'd get opped! Anyway, have fun with the powers! Not too much fun, though...  :-P --Strange (but) Untrue  Whhhy?Whut?How? *Back from the dead* 08:15, 1 August 2007 (UTC)

At last! Why its taken so long for the "proles" to recognise the work you put into the site I just don't know. This should have happened at least a year and a half ago. But the important thing is, its arrived, so congratulations on a well deserved "promotion". If you need any advice on abusing your new powers give me a shout. :) -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)

Thanks Mhaille, its an honor to be in such "esteemed" company. Looking forward to bothering you with inane questions. ;) MadMax 21:05, 17 August 2007 (UTC)

Congrats! ~Jewriken.GIF 09:11, 1 August 2007 (UTC)

Nice one, and about time too! And don't listen to Modusoperandi. A coup is a splendid idea; it worked for Hitler, and to the best of my recollection, everything turned out alright in the end for him. -- Sir Codeine K·H·P·B·M·N·C·U·Bu. · (Harangue) 11:09, 1 August 2007 (UTC)
