[edit] STUFF vote

Hey there, EASports, I'm glad to see that you're voting on STUFF. But there's a problem with your vote for the " Ouch! Buzz Buzz Buzz" fact: on items that include a revision, you can only vote for one revision or the original, and you have voted for the original and a revision. Therefore, you should go back and choose one or the other; if you don't, someone will remove one of your votes. Have a nice day! Heimstern Läufer 02:55, 13 December 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Haldo!

Hey, ther EASports. I'm Homsarroks. I noticed that you were a relatively new user and I wanted to give you a welcome. I know that you've already been officially hello'd, but I thought that I'd say hi anyway.--Image:Homsar-in-motion.gifhr.pngΨHomsarΨroksΨImage:kookysig.gifImage:Cheat-shrug-tiny.gif 16:27, 16 December 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Minor edits

Hi there, again. I've been watching the recent edits and wanted to let you know that there's just a little teeny problem with your editing lately: you're marking edits as "minor edits" when they aren't really. Since you may not know, I'll tell you that a minor edit is something like correcting spelling, grammar or punctuation; tweaking wording or reverting vandalism. Adding a Fun Fact or other new content isn't. It's not a huge deal, but some people may get frustrated if you mark edits as minor, so I thought I'd let you know. Talk atcha later!

Actully, most vandal reverts can be considered major. — talk Bubsty edits 04:16, 23 December 2005 (UTC)
Except that they're not. When a sysop reverts vandalism, the software automatically marks it as minor. The reason is that the net difference between the original version and the reverted version is zero. — It's dot com 04:19, 23 December 2005 (UTC)
Oh. I was thinking NSMC type vandal-ings, which I thought would be major because you were "saving a page," so to speak. I take back what I said. — talk Bubsty edits 04:21, 23 December 2005 (UTC)

[edit] User page

You know, I think you ought to write some sort of user page. It's obvious (at least to me, if not everyone else) that you plan on sticking around, and you are fairly active. And we all like reading user pages. — User:ACupOfCoffee@ @ 17:40, 9 January 2006 (UTC)

  • I don't know what I'd put on it. I'm pretty active on Wikipedia but I don't have a user page there either. EASports

[edit] Coincidence?

Is User:EA Sports you? — User:ACupOfCoffee@ 19:01, 10 April 2006 (UTC)

Never mind. Apparently so.
Yep. Old account is working again for whatever reason, so I'll start using it again.

[edit] Creepozoids

It was a (B-)movie title in 1987, which is eight years before Freakazoid! came out. It's a bit slangy, but it's a word. The movie title spelled it with an "O", though - Googling shows that the "A" variety is more common. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 22:03, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the info. EASports 02:31, 11 September 2008 (UTC)


[edit] Using Show Preview

Hello EASports, I see that you have made several consecutive edits to the same page. I want to point out the Show Preview button. It's right next to the Save Page button when you edit. You should use it whenever you are making a lot of experimental edits, for example when you are trying to get formatting right. Using the Show Preview button is quicker and easier than saving and clicking "edit" again, and will keep recent changes and page histories from being flooded. Thanks, BBG 03:11, 10 November 2008 (UTC)

That was a case of not noticing something until after I'd already clicked the save button. EASports 22:31, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
