edit Deletions

If you are in the middle of a rage-quit, that is sorry to see. If you want me to delete pages in your userspace (along with the page history), list them at QVFD. However, you must not delete this page, which has the record of conversations you have had here. Spıke Ѧ 21:23 22-Jan-15

Spike, as I wrote on your page, no rage quitting here. Sorry about the mess. I do, however, need your help. - WW

edit A Bit Rusty

Spike, Wild Weasel here. My apologies, but I've been away for about a decade, and wanted to get back into the swing of things: no rage-quitting here. I just thought there needed to be some spring cleaning, and as such, I took a jaundiced eye to the relics of the past and began pruning with abandon. I didn't mean to be a dick, or violate any rules, but having been away for so long has made me a bit rusty. Please forgive my impulsivity; I need your help (or the help of other admins) on several (minor) issues. If you would grant me an audience, we can continue here or on my talk page. -WW

Happy to help. The block was for a token 2 hours; if it has not yet expired, give me a minute to figure out how to unblock your IP — Oh, you seem to have found another. I gave you the token block because you deleted your talk page, with a seemingly provocative message, after I restored it after your first deletion. The only thing you are rusty on is that the convention here is not to delete your talk page but move it to an archive in your userspace, such as User talk:Wild Weasel/Archive 1.

I just thought the first time I deleted it hadn't taken, so I came up with another witty remark. I can see how that must have looked. Regardless, my biggest problem right now is updating my e-mail so I can update my password, which is about 10 years too old. The "My Preferences" tab claims I'm not logged in, the "Change E-Mail" special page doesn't appear to be doing anything, and I'm a bit flummoxed. -WW
I don't understand that. If your username is on the top line of every page (top left, and at the top right is "Log out"), then you are logged in. Moreover, Uncyclopedia remembers forever via cookies that a given PC is logged in, rather than bug you in 30 days like Wikipedia. As I recall, when changing your email, Wikia will send an email to the new address for you to verify by reply. But updating your password is a separate operation. Spıke Ѧ 00:25 23-Jan-15
Okay, maybe it was the browser I'm using (or not using) - got the e-mail address changed. But the password is still...bad...and I must be so rusty I've forgotten how to use the internets. Anyway, I guess I have to wait 24 hours to request another reset, which seems excessive but so be it. On a non-technical note, how would I go about replacing a previous image I uploaded with a new one? I want the old one deleted, but so as not to be a bad sport, would try to replace it with something funnier. 2nd lt. sir wild weasel kun vfh fp
Go to the page (in the File: space). There should be a link to "Upload a new version of this image" or something. Don't do this if other pages are using the existing version — at least, not without visiting each article and verifying that the new image will work just as well. If this is not the case, upload the new version under a new name. Spıke Ѧ 01:01 23-Jan-15

edit Archive

So you have archived! But would you please put a link at the top of this page so we can find the archive? (I for one would not have guessed the name you gave it.) Also sign with four tildes so people can tell when you posted, cheers! Spıke Ѧ 04:30 23-Jan-15

PS--There is another problem. I don't know how you were doing it, but now the first line of this page is a <DIV> and there is no ending </DIV>, which means the last post doesn't look right (to me). Spıke Ѧ 04:34 23-Jan-15

Spike, I'm trying, but now I must sleep. I will work on the formatting, and the time stamps. I leave you with this — 2nd Lt. Sir Edward, the Weasel of Wild KUN VFH FP 04:43, January 23, 2015 (UTC)

The timestamps are working. But real Uncyclopedians don't sleep! Spıke Ѧ 04:50 23-Jan-15

Gun Backfire

Wouldn't want to see you get Shaft-ed.

Total Newb question, but how do you alter what shows up when you type four tildes? I mean the name/link, not so much the timestamp. :) - Cornet Sir Wilde Weas'l KUN VFH FP 23:54, January 23, 2015 (UTC)

This is covered in excruciating detail at UN:SIG. I don't understand why you are asking, as you now seem to be doing it correctly, as you must be doing, to avail yourself of your bandolero of signature files. Spıke Ѧ 00:14 24-Jan-15

Spike, I'm a complicated man, and I'd say my woman understands me, but she really doesn't. (Notice the sixth chamber is empty!) ;) Thank you for your continuing patience. Cornet Sir Wilde Weas'l KUN VFH FP 00:18, January 24, 2015 (UTC)
