Too many edits.

Just as a reminder, you can remove each edit all at once. Also, remember to preview.

Please do not move the discussion elsewhere - Please keep it in the original discussion thread unless it goes off topic. (Mostly keep it in same thread)
To answer your question, you had removed all of the welcome messages in multiple edit when you could have done it in one edit. And just as a side reminder, you can preview to minimize the number of edits.

12944qwerty, you're being really mean - instead of gently reminding ("Hi! I saw you removed each welcome topic one by one, but did you know you can do that at once?") you're commanding ("you can remove each edit all at once").
Also, they didn't move any discussion elsewhere - they removed it completely.
Besides that, what question are you answering? Again, all I see is them removing topics, not asking a question.

Links syntax

I noticed that on your Userpage you used external link formatting for internal links. Please don't do this. To fix this, replace [ talk:54329 talk page] WITH [[User talk:54329]]. For more info, look here

Once again, you're being kinda mean - "please don't do this" instead of "that's not the best thing to do" (the former being especially unacceptable considering it's their userpage so they can do whatever they want with it), and shouting "WITH". Being blunt gets people's attention, but being this blunt arouses their anger.

I'm sorry if I sounded mean, I didn't mean to. I need to improve on word choice and word play. Sorry again.

Please don't remove discussions that are not resolved

Hi, I saw you removed two topics 12944qwerty posted. I know they look bad, but it's not a good idea to remove topics that aren't done yet because there's still a discussion in progress and removing the topic interrupts that. Removing the welcome templates is fine because those topics are done on post, but 12944qwerty's reminders about links and too many edits remain relevant (though they could have been nicer about it). Because you hadn't responded, the discussion wasn't really done yet.

I'll be bringing 12944qwerty's topics back onto the page once I've posted this one. I hope you will keep this in mind in the future.

Incidentally, have you ever considered archiving? That's when you make a subpage of your talk page called something like "User talk:54329/archive 1" and move topics that are done into there, instead of removing them completely. That way, you can keep the love you got from everyone without having a cluttered talk page.

Oh, okay. Thank you for letting me know. I apologize; I'm still fairly new to this. I like the idea of an archive. Thank you!
