Leave a message and he will respond whenever he gets a chance— that is, assuming he gets a chance. Cheers =)

I am unable to edit, but only at school?[edit]

Hello Slakr, I was unfortunately banned by you some months ago, however I have only not been able to make contributions while I am at school, whereas anywhere else I can edit.

I was wondering if this is because of not something I have done, but rather a ban on a specific IP network.

Please let me know what you think, and I ask if you would be able to unban me if this is the case.

@DaBestMonEva: School blocks are usually anonymous-only, which means you should be able to edit while logged in to your account. If this block isn't anonymous-only for some reason (it's possible I accidentally ticked the wrong button or there's really bad abuse), when you're at your school log out and follow the instructions at Wikipedia:Appealing_a_block#Requesting_to_be_unblocked (i.e., visit the IP's talk page at Special:MyTalk when logged out and make use of the {{unblock}} template to summon someone another admin to help to "make the block anonymous-only," which will let you edit despite the block, as long as you then log in). --slakrtalk / 06:49, 19 May 2018 (UTC)
@Slakr: Ok! Thank you for the quick response :)

Sinebot not signing my talk page[edit]

Why is SInebot not autosigning my talk page? The template is added to it. --Tyw7  (☎ Contact me! • Contributions) 15:42, 26 May 2018 (UTC)

A kitten for you![edit]

Thanks for making a neat bot to sign all the things careless people leave unsigned.

SineBot signed a comment that was actually already signed[edit]

Hello. I moved a misplaced comment from a subpage onto the main talk page. This triggered SineBot to helpfully add my signature to the comment. However, the comment was already fully signed, albeit in two pieces: the user had appended their linked username and user talk page, and then someone--actually, SineBot himself!--placed a {{undated}} template after it for a timestamp. Shouldn't SineBot figure this out? I didn't write any of the comment myself, so it was a good thing I went back and checked the edit or I would've been credited with the whole thing. 2600:8800:1880:91E:5604:A6FF:FE38:4B26 (talk) 19:35, 17 June 2018 (UTC)
