Hello Robert, you do actually know me, well vaguely, you edited my Guide entry about Shakespearesmiley - smiley So first of all I'd like to thank you perfusly for the great work you did on it.

I got directed towards your entry, "A Short History of Cubism" whilst it was hanging around in Peer Review and when it got moved to the Flea Market I knabbed it as I thought it was good and I'd just found a number of old school work sheets about Cubism. I hope you don't mind.

I do realise you've logged out kinda indefinately, although I have a sneaking suspicion about something...also you'll recieve an email once the entry goes through Peer Review. I haven't as yet had a chance to do anything to it (A1085159) but I shall do my best with it I promise.

Anyhow, thank you for the great entry, it was a shame you didn't get to finish it before you leftsmiley - smiley

* walks in, smiley - whistle, and generally acting like he owns the place *

Okay, let's see. I was doing a general search, rescue, and tour of all of my abandoned userspaces, and came across this thread. Having finally decided that I've made the connections obvious enough to anyone who's looking, I'm just going to stop hiding and point out that I am, in fact, responsible for this account smiley - erm. I'm gonna see if the people at h2g2 will let me have it's (and the eight or so others) passwords, because I have nothing better to do, and I'd like to offer up an explanation on the various userspaces.


Thanks for the compliment about Sub-editing smiley - smiley. I read the Peer Review thread on that entry, knew full well that it belongs to me, and left it alone. I was thinking of submitting it to wherever entries I can't be bothered working on go, so you taking it isn't a problem smiley - winkeye.

Anyway, you have my permission to work on the entry smiley - smiley. I'd appreciate it if you'd move the "Contributing Researchers" entry for U185566 (I still remember the number by heart *sigh*...) over to U226653 - this account.

Like I said, I'm going to e-mail h2g2support and see if I can get access to U185566 again. Anna knows about this account and U185566 being the same person, so it should be relativly easy smiley - biggrin.

Thanks for taking the time to work on the entry, and for giving it a better home than I did smiley - cheers!

(aka Robert, Axe, and way too many other names)

OKay, small truth as only on for a minute...I already knew this was your old account, I just had a hunch about it. I'm glad you got in touch though, especially as i'd never got to thank you about my Shakespeare entry.

Anyhow, I haven't started work on your entry yet as I haven't had much time for anything on h2g2 at the moment, but I'll change the reference and start fairly soonsmiley - smiley

Good luck getting your old pages back.

I knew you knew smiley - winkeye. I remember posting on this account to a thread you were in or something, the I saw "sneaking suspicion" smiley - smiley.

Anyway... sent the e-mail to h2g2support, with a list of all the accounts I know about, and saying that I have no idea about the e-mail addresses or usernames. I might have to use the "trust me, I'm a volunteer" position on this one smiley - biggrin.

* goes back to waiting for more entries to sub-edit smiley - winkeye *

Hmm... on U185566, I have sub-editing credit on a few entries. Getting that transferred to my new account would be nifty smiley - smiley. I'll have to annoy... erm... ask Ashley about it on Thusday...

* checks calender *

Wait, it /is/ Thursday!



I never could get the hang of Thursdays smiley - groansmiley - run


Just looked on ComingUp; there're five entries in there, and seven people want new batches. Methinks that's bad. Oh well. I'm first in line smiley - biggrin... since 07/31.

* wanders in *

Okay, so we now have a Will, a Robert, and an Axe. Which one is me?

smiley - laugh

Anyway, so the nifty h2g2 support people gave me my old life... erm... account back, and I thought I might as well post here and say yay smiley - smiley.

BTW, I have a nice shiny batch of four, which Anna accidentally put on this account. I got 'em transferred to U226653, though...

Anyway. Hi. I'll delete the original Cubism content, and link to your entry smiley - smiley.

smiley - laughwell as Robert was the first name I knew you by, I'll just call you Robertsmiley - winkeye Unless you'd prefer Will or indeed Axesmiley - erm

Good that you got them backsmiley - smiley

I got a new batch this on how to make a boybandsmiley - yikes I'm so anti-boyband it's rediculous! Although I guess the Beatles were a boyband and I like them but they're literally a band not none singing none playing muppets who just look vaguely pretty to the massessmiley - erm

Good good, currently the entry's still all yours, I havne't really had a chance to work on it, but it's good that you're back as I can bounce some suggestions off you once I've made themsmiley - smiley

smiley - laugh Robert is fine, and Will is fine too. I have no idea what Axe was all about smiley - erm. I go through names way too much...

smiley - yikes Do we really want to encourage that sort of behavior? Surely making another boy band is against some sort of law smiley - winkeye?

smiley - laughI've only gone through one or two other than Em or Emily, usually I just add bits on the end of my name, it used to be any titles I have on here, now it's just random thoughts or song lyrics.

No, I hate pop and teenybopper boy bands...luckily you know they'll be among the first up against the wall when the revolution comessmiley - winkeye
