I got this.
I see your talk page is lonely.
(continued from my talk page) Yes, blocking new account creation would do that. Mass-protecting pages works in a pinch. I do what I'm able to. Whatever works, right? I made the protection time something crazy then adjusted it down. Alexander (talk) 13:43, 12 May 2019 (CDT)
Suggestion for welcome template
Since you requested content, Dove; here's a copy of what I just put on Alexander's:
Thanks for services rendered. Good to have you with us, Dove. I commpiled a cookbook from family recipes and it includes some great desserts, Dove. But your site is quite classy and I don't have appropriate photos of the finished products. Also, I sent Auggie some paragraphs from upcoming books on evolution of color vision and the color of the Sun as perceived by humans (and possible extraterrestrials AMONG US, LURKING), with trichromatic (three types of color cones) vision. If you're interested, I could either email them to you both or make a page. Dove, what is the basis for your handle? Are you a descendant of the House of Windsor, or did your family make its billions as developer of Dove soap? Back of lawn mowing day. Drlesmgolden (talk) 15:19, 12 May 2019 (CDT)
That is probably not such a good idea
Between you and me (and now all of Encyc), I would refrain from putting personal life stuff online where anyone can read it.
That's really not a good idea. You never know who could be reading it. When I was younger, I learned the hard way not to do this. Without getting into details, it came to bite me in the ass later. Your experiences may be different than mine but better to be safe. There are always idiots and trolls out there, I'm sure you know that as well as I do, and they won't be so caring about feelings, only what they can get from you. Just some friendly advice, feel free to take it or ignore it. Alexander (talk) 08:36, 13 May 2019 (CDT)
Are you ok?
Noticing some strange edits you're making lately. Is everything okay?
Hi Dove. Thanks for your help with vandals. Rather than give them satisfaction that they are wasting our time, it's best to let Alexander and Auggie know and after the guy is blocked then help them with reconstruction. As far as veracity, everything I put into encyc is true, including stuff about me. Awards, writing and acting gigs, animal activism, college degrees, publications, etc., all true to my recollection. Maybe you're referring to Never Split Tens movie. It's hard to get financing for a movie. But we've done some casting both with an agency and by personal contact, location scouting, particularly have secured a casino for shooting the gambling scenes, script rewrites, and have a couple veterans interested in directing. Even contacted James Caan's agent for the role of Manny Kimmel, but he wanted only $1 million for a few scenes. So have faith. Most importantly, as Auggie wrote, stay well.

Oops, sorry. It was Alexander who wished you well. But I'm sure Auggie, as well as I, do the same. 18:37, 16 June 2019 (CDT)
You don't make the rules
No. You can't just claim you're exempt from the rules. If I can't make the rules, you certainly can't either. I don't know if you're just testing us to see how we react but it's not amusing. You aren't in any position to change the rules. Don't do that again. Alexander (talk) 05:19, 19 June 2019 (CDT)
Before you go on my talk page and start picking apart edits you think I made, please pay attention to who made them in the first place and the actual spelling. That was Auggie, not me, and it's 100% spelled correctly. I know how to spell, thanks. Not appreciated. Thank you. — Alexander (talk) 18:17, 20 June 2019 (CDT)
Surely you must be aware that there are perhaps some ethical issues in creating an alternate version of an already active wiki (without asking management) and passing it off as your own, aren't you? — Alexander (talk) 13:50, 19 July 2019 (CDT)
Wear it with pride.
Wear that 'I was banned from Wikipedia' badge with pride. If you own it (and you know most of us were as well), and you know many of those admins are power-hungry dictators anyway, you can laugh when that's all people can dig up to use against you.
