"Return to Monke"[edit]

You can see I made my edit repointing Return to Monke on July 13, 2022. At the time, Satiric misspelling (revision dated August 2, 2022) had no mention of "Return to Monke" on it, so I repointed it to an album on which it is a song, somewhere it was actually mentioned. Now satiric misspelling does, obviously, but you're acting like I just made that edit when it's from July 2022. You could have taken that into account and silently reverted the edit; I would have been none the wiser. Ss112 16:14, 17 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Ss112: 1. I was aware you made it in July.
2. I had that revision in mind when thinking about changing the redirect target; it states "Another intentionally [sic] misspelling of dog is doggo, a word from the internet slang DoggoLingo, which also includes respelled words for...other animals such as...monkey with monke which, I'd argue, if not as helpful as the current version of satiric misspelling, is still an explanation. On July 13, "monke" was indeed mentioned twice on Cave World, but there was absolutely no explanation of "Return to Monke"; it could be a conspiracy theory, for all one can see there.

The word "monke" is not a mention of "Return to Monke". That would only make "monke" a valid redirect. I have no issue with the repoint now, except I don't think you needed to revert me when the edit was made in July last year because there was no mention of that exact phrase on the article at the time. Song titles don't need "explanations" on their parent albums' articles. They're considered valid redirects if they're even so much as mentioned on the album article. This is why in deletion discussions, if a song is not considered notable enough for its own article, it is most of the time redirected to its parent album, where it is at least mentioned in the track listing.

Exact phrase, OK, good point. But we're not talking just about the song title here; it is also the phrase, which otherwise goes unexplained. Heavy Water (talk) 16:36, 17 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I wasn't concerned with whether the meaning of the phrase that the song was named after was explained on Cave World, only repointing the article to where the exact phrase had a mention. As I said, I have no issue with the repoint now that the exact phrase is mentioned on satiric misspelling, and it probably is more helpful to point to its explanation.

Gaslight someone else[edit]

Don't care about your insinuations and gaslighting. Especially when you are trying to defend a horrible klan-linked bigot like Kacsmaryk. (talk) 04:12, 28 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Informing you about NPA after you declared me "[one of] his klan defenders" is gaslighting? Let's see...Wiktionary defines gaslighting as: "To manipulate someone such that they doubt their own memory, perceptions of reality, or sanity, typically for malevolent reasons." Nah, the diff is pretty clear on what happened (and your comment's still on the page, of course). Heavy Water (talkcontribs) 13:14, 28 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
