Off-topic comment

I noticed that recently both @John: and @NDKilla: have executed CheckUser actions with the summary check pot abuse. While I realize that in this context "pot" is likely short for "potential", it does make me chuckle because at first glance it makes it look like you folks are checking for drug abuse. By the way, nice to see you around, NDK. – AmandaCath (talk) 21:35, 28 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

@Amanda Catherine: It's funny to see you say that, as I've thought the same thing. Coming from the banking world, potential losses are commonly abbreviated as pot losses, which makes me wonder if the financial losses on a marijuana grow operation are also referred to as pot losses and, if so, would that be a double entendre/pun? ;-) Dmehus (talk) 21:42, 28 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Why is this page protected?

I need to add something about Loathsome Characters Wiki. It's buggy. I have no idea 2.0 (talk) 23:13, 27 November 2020 (UTC)[reply]

@I have no idea 2.0: Stewards' noticeboard was semi-protected to autoconfirmed users for two weeks following a technical glitch, which has since been resolved by system administrators, that resulted in many wikis being inadvertently closed. Protection should expire within just a day or two, but meantime, I do have a couple questions for you. Firstly, can you clarify just a bit by what you mean when you say that wiki is "buggy"? Quite likely this doesn't require any steward attention at all. Secondly, it looks like I have no idea 2.0 was created recently, not logged in, which is nearly identical to I have no idea. It's quite possible the two user accounts belong to the same user, but since the former was created while not logged into the latter, I can't confirm this. So, consistent with Username Policy and to prevent impersonation, would you mind logging into I have no idea and providing an on-wiki confirmation that I have no idea 2.0 is your legitimate alternate account? Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 23:22, 27 November 2020 (UTC)[reply]
This is my old account, using it for one last time. I have no idea (talk) 12:49, 28 November 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@I have no idea and I have no idea 2.0: Okay, that's great. Yes check.svg Thank you for that account confirmation. Dmehus (talk) 14:07, 28 November 2020 (UTC)[reply]
If you want to know what happened go to,_back_to_square_one! Also, look at the images on the talk page. I have no idea 2.0 (talk) 12:54, 28 November 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@I have no idea 2.0: I'm not sure I still have the greatest idea what the problem is. Can you describe the problem in a couple sentences? Alternatively, are you able to come onto Discord or to #miraheze connect on IRC? If you use the latter, I recommend the IRCCloud client to connect to our IRC channel as you register an account and will be provided with an automatic IRC cloak that hides your numerical IP address, essentially.
