I've seen plenty of people with huge lists of "favourite guns" on their talk pages, but never people uploading dozens of images just to build a huge list of favourite guns. It seems like in the time he's doing that he could be, well, contributing. Especially since the images he's uploading are redundant (in fact, they look like resized copies of our current images); he's been told off before for uploading images of guns we already have images of.

Try explaining to him how to resize images using wikicode. If that doesn't do it than I don't know what will.

Well, I asked him to knock it off, and the reply:

"I'm putting them on so I can remember them better. Sorry for any inconvenience but I will continue to do it, But I will change the jpeg name so that my images won't be uploaded. Is that ok. "

My brain hurts.

Reading your exchange with him is like watching someone trying to carve through an immense block of condensed stupid with a broken toothbrush.

Also, wait a minute. He already knows the resize code, all the blank spaces on his talk page were added as [[Image:.jpg|350px|thumb|none]] when he started this. He just seems to have no idea that he doesn't have to upload a new image to get a link to it.

Well, he seems to be learning. English may not be his first language, or perhaps, like I did sometimes in the past, he may be posting while really tired or sleepy. I would give it some time. Just remember that not all of us were perfect when we first started

Judging from his description, he's a kid.

"Dear Trespassers before having a go at me about how I've done something wrong, instead of wasting your time and mine just edit my page to the right way you want it to be thank you. P.S. If you edit in away I don't approve of I will return it to the way I want it."

Haha, so you want other people to fix your coding errors, but if you don't LIKE their fixes, which are standardized and not by taste but by regulations and standards, you'll change them back? What a little tool.

I wouldn't worry about him not contributing, I doubt you want his contributions. That said, if he's not linking to other pages, it doesn't really matter. Let him make his own profile look gaudy and stupid.

I'm gonna' go out on a limb and say he's 16, give or take a few months.

Also, he's re-uploading downsized pics again. Two duplicates of the G3A3 picture this time.

He starts the list as "weapons I one day wish to own". HOLY CRAP, that is one hell of a wish-list. Unless he becomes an armorer or wins the mega-super-ultra lottery, he may need to prioritize a tad. Just a tad.
