Comment: warn users if they take this kind of action

I was just wondering, would messages like this be considered acceptable? To me it seems like spam. I can tolerate it on April Fools' Day and with those false badges on user pages, but actually leaving user a message to get their signature on a page? Seems immature to me, and if I could get away with it, I'd give users who do this warnings for spam. --Berrybrick (Talk) 19:21, April 19, 2012 (UTC)

  • I wouldn't give them warnings, but I would revert it, and ask them not to do it again. Maybe a warning if they kept doing it. Drewlzoo
    • I know I wasn't very clear, but I didn't mean a warning template, at least not the first time. --Berrybrick (Talk) 19:27, April 19, 2012 (UTC)
  • FULL SUPPORT Wow. He just puts his name there? No doubt this is spam, we're receiving too many immature users... Dj.jpg

  • April Fool's is fine (and that's what I thought it was for), but any other time- definite oppose. And if the jokes are on the joker's userpage, I'd be ok with that, but to be actively sending messages to other users would be unacceptable to me. NightblazeSaber 23:10, April 19, 2012 (UTC)
  • Allow on April Fool's day, warn the messenger elsewhere. -Cligra Join the redlink war!

  • If he didn't have permission to do so, then no, messages like so are unacceptable. Plenty of problems could brew from messages like that. -NBP 14:46, April 23, 2012 (UTC)
