The Civility Enforcement Case

The Signpost
13 August 2014

What have I really been up to?

My (humourous) KEYS to Wikipedia

Assume good faith, unless the other person is possibly clearly an idiot Use common sense, unless especially if you're a bloody anarchist Create notable articles, but don't randomly mindlessly remove articles

My rules

First rule of Sockpuppet Accusations: Put up or shut up. Either file your case, or STFU First rule of Edit Warring: Except for clear vandalism, DON'T. No excuses

Q&A

Question Answer
Who are you? Well, I don't talk much about myself.
Why do you create certain new pages? Well, I hate seeing redlinks, and I hate seeing things that should be linked to that are not.
Why so many stubs? Well, I probably followed a redlink and started an article that someone else knows more about.
Why are you occasionally argumentative? Well, what do you mean? What makes you think I'm argumentative?!
Why do you even try to mediate? Well, there is no right way or wrong way, only my way
What's with the "BMW" crap? Well, they're my initials, thanks for asking.
Why do all your answers start with "well" Well, it's a deep subject...
Why do you say you come from Ontario and Ottawa? (user submitted) Well, there are dozens of towns/cities named "Ottawa" in the world. I also say I'm from Canada and Ontario.
What do your short forms mean in edit summaries?" Well, most are pretty standard (rv = revert, rm = remove, +cmt = add comment, +rply = add reply). The unique one is +smac which stands for "add smart-assed comment"

Special notes left for me

"Wikipedia can be an impersonal enterprise at times, but there is a living being behing every pseudonymous Wikipedian. I do not know whether the passing of a human being whose path once crossed yours in a small way is a matter of concern to you; but in case it is, I am bringing THIS to your attention because you once made her happy, and for that I thank you.

You were the first person Teenly met on Wikipedia, in response to her very first edit, and she was especially delighted when you thanked her on a talk page for her contribution. It was very exciting. Fenneck (talk) April 2009"

Association of Wikipedians Who Dislike Making Broad Judgments About the Worthiness of a General Category of Article, and Who Are in Favor of the Deletion of Some Particularly Bad Articles, but That Doesn't Mean They Are Deletionists

AWWDMBJAWGCAWAIFDSPBATDMTAD

Est omnino difficile iudicare inclusionis meritum cuiusdam rei in encyclopædia cum ratio sciendi quid populi referat incerta sit, sed nihilominus aliquid encyclopædiam dedecet

It is generally difficult to judge the worthiness of a particular topic for inclusion in an encyclopedia considering that there is no certain way to know what interests people, but some topics nevertheless are not fit for an encyclopedia.

This motto reflects the desire of these Wikipedians to be reluctant, but not entirely unwilling, to remove articles from Wikipedia.
