12[edit]

Hi, what happens in 12 edits? Have a life-changing day in a good way! —While False (museum | talk | contributions | logs | rights | printable version | page information | what links there | related changes | Google search | current time: 22:43) 21:56, 11 December 2022 (UTC)

I meant that I need 12 more edits to get autoconfirmed so I can create more pages in my user page. The computer that I'm using runs awfully slow. My other computer blocks CAPTCHA automatically. ColorfulGalaxy (talk) 07:51, 13 December 2022 (UTC)

I just made it! Thanks for confirming my account! Now I can stop using that slow computer. --ColorfulGalaxy (talk) 09:08, 13 December 2022 (UTC)

Google search link[edit]

A couple of times, recently, you provided a Google search link to something. I don't like following those (with their "q=..." stuff and hangover metadata in other POST data) when you could perhaps give the direct link you intend instead?

i.e. right-clicking on the Google page's item and copying that link is wasteful (and not always correct), you should instead follow the link you intend and then copy the true address (if proven to be what you wish) from the address-bar. And, even then, best to cut away any "&referer=..." type stuff (and restest the cut down link!) so that everyone who follows you has a bare-bones link that works without having to mess with reconstructing the metadata that means "http://whatever.com/foo/bar/baz.html#indexpoint", or howsoever it should resolve.

Just a tip. To streamline and not unneccessarily obfuscate the use of your contributions... 172.70.91.77 15:15, 15 December 2022 (UTC)

This is probably the first numbered comic whose title...[edit]

Probably you could just confirm these claims, before making them? It seems easy enough to do, and you seem to have the time to do it. 172.71.242.141 23:25, 12 January 2023 (UTC)

Help[edit]

I need your help creating these pages and uploading the pictures I needed. Please, please, you know that we are close friends IRL. --ChristmasGospel (talk) 20:34, 20 January 2023 (UTC)

Look, this is clearly a stupid move to try to look legitimate. If you're truly IRL friends then it could have waited for an IRL meeting (or whatever other social media blinks you have), at which point your 'friend' could have provided a lot more practical help without waiting for such silly messages. Laughable, really. But do as you're going to do, I'm sure I can't stop you from going through with this clear pretence to whatever end you're leading up to. And no apologies if I'm wrong, just pity. 162.158.34.230 19:19, 21 January 2023 (UTC)
