This is the talk page of SHB2000


  • If you need help with anything at all, please leave a message right here on this talk page.
  • If there's something you need to discuss in private, email me in strictest confidence. Need to be autoconfirmed though, if not go and message me on a random WMF project that no one would ever be thinking of going to if you're not autoconfirmed (list of wikis here).
  • Feeling bored and want to have a chat, I'm more than happy to do so.
  • If you're having difficulty in accessing this talk page, go to b:User talk:SHB2000 or m:User talk:SHB2000. I check both talk pages frequently and get notifications on both. However, do not go to my English Wikipedia talk page. The English Wikipedia is not the centre of all WMF projects.
  • This page is also protected often due to the result of x-wiki vandals and long-term abusers. If that's the case, then go to my IP talk page.
  • The reply tool may not work on this page.
  • Rollbacks used (for personal reference)
  • I'm open to technical questions here, but at the same time, you may also get a better response at the travellers' pub

  • If you're here to ask me a docent question, then this is the place. Expect a reply within 1-7 days, unless you see a box saying that I'm travelling.
  • If this page is protected, then follow the same instructions for anons (or IP users) and go to my IP talk page.

Click here to message me. I will reply as soon as I can. All replies will be made directly underneath your message on this page. Do be aware though, that I do not use talkback. I do on the other hand, use pings as I've more or less given up on watchlists, but may not always ping you (usually, if the message has gone unanswered for about more than 12-18 hours, then I'd usually give a ping).

Threads on this page are archived every 14 days of inactivity, but mass mail messages may get archived earlier, while active threads might get archived later than 14 days of inactivity, but how this page is archived isn't consistent merely because a bot couldn't do its job.
