A note[edit]

Hello. As you may have noticed, I have not been on Wikipedia for the last month or so. That was really a break to regain my sanity after much editing. I also had complex personal issues, regarding and not regarding wiki, and I read a few things that made me lose my faith in Wikipedia. Now I think that it is time for me to eschew my previous editing habits and just pop in here and there to improve the encyclopedia. Erik the Red 2 ~~~~ 02:31, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

Appaling conduct[edit]

Your conduct in the discussion about Kurt Weber has been appaling. You have repeatedly labelled multiple users including myself, and most notably, Majorly as trolls. You have frequently used insulting sarcasm and patronisation to get your point across. You have even attacked Majorly on his talk page. In general, you've been completely disruptive. Please refrain from such behaviour in future discussions, it's completely couter productive, and in already hot subjects such as this, downright immature. If you wish to continue your participation in the discussion, I suggest you do so in a calmer manner.--Serviam (talk) 16:01, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

Calling someone a troll for trolling is not incivility, but merely stating the truth. I'm removing myself from that and related threads. If Majorly is wise he will do the same. Erik the Red 2 (AVE·CAESAR) 17:20, 20 September 2008 (UTC)
Calling someoen a troll regardless of their actions inflames the situation massivly. It's about as tactful as telling someone everyone else thinks they're weird. It's rude, and I thought nearly everyone was mature enough to know this. Evidently I was wrong.--Serviam (talk) 18:05, 20 September 2008 (UTC)
I called Kurt a troll, but the difference is, he is one. I'm not (or at least nowhere near as bad as him). Majorly talk 18:59, 20 September 2008 (UTC)
Majorly, please be mature enough to disengage yourself from that discussion. The community was tired of my rants, and I am sure they are just as tired of yours. Erik Proxy-Connection: keep-alive

e Red 2 (AVE·CAESAR) 19:01, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

I've already withdrawn myself completely, I'm just waiting for Majorly to reciprocate. Erik the Red 2 (AVE·CAESAR) 19:14, 20 September 2008 (UTC)
I think it would be wise indeed if you were to refrain from reference to Majorly – by word or deed, implicit or explicit – for the next little while. Let Majorly handle his own affairs; there's no need for you to comment on whether or not he's reciprocating your withdrawal. TenOfAllTrades(talk) 19:25, 20 September 2008 (UTC)
It's just annoying that Majorly gets a "Get out of Jail Free" card while Kurt is blocked for the same behavior. I think the discussion will be far saner and more productive without either of us badgering those who provide comments. Erik the Red 2 (AVE·CAESAR) 15:05, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

Judenrat[edit]

Basicly what the guy says is true, there were Jewish councils in the Polish ghettos that took orders from the Germnans. Read Judenrat by Isiah Trunk, it is an excellant historical account of Jewish collaboration during the war in Poland--Woogie10w (talk) 00:37, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

Juden Rat does not mean Jewish rats, Rat in German means council, in German towns they have a Rathaus, the city hall--Woogie10w (talk) 00:40, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

It is a moot point now, my discussion entry deleted. Apparently this subject still remains historically obscure and something of a sore spot for many. 68.9.24.234 (talk) 12:09, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

messed up edit to Jimi Hendrix[edit]

I'm not sure what it was you were trying to do here, but the result was that nonsense was added to the article, so I reverted your change. Beeblebrox (talk) 18:14, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

Odd signature breaking[edit]

It seems like your unrelated posts are added weird content into mine. Check it out. Here it is a second time. Not sure what to make of it. Are you using an external editor or something? It isn't a big deal, but I was almost 100% certain that you didn't know you were doing it. Protonk (talk) 22:26, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

Weird. I definitely didn't realize I was doing it. I was just editing with Firefox; now I'm using Safari to see if the browser makes a difference. Erik the Red 2 (AVE·CAESAR) 23:00, 21 September 2008 (UTC)
Well, it seems that it was the browser causing the problem. Erik the Red 2 (AVE·CAESAR) 23:01, 21 September 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, I thought it was weird. I'll have to keep an eye out to see if firefox does that for me. Protonk (talk) 23:06, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

Bizarre diff[edit]

Hi Erik, not sure what caused it, but this diff [1] is very odd indeed. DuncanHill (talk) 01:56, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

See above... I'm starting to think that it is my internet connexion rather than the browser that is causing the problem. Tell me if you see anything else weird. Erik the Red 2 ~~~~ 02:00, 22 September 2008 (UTC)
OK, will do. DuncanHill (talk) 02:03, 22 September 2008 (UTC)
Well, it's not just happening to you - see [2] for example. I have asked at the Village Pump - Technical if anyone there knows what is causing it. DuncanHill (talk) 02:34, 22 September 2008 (UTC)
Thanks! Erik the Red 2 ~~~~ 02:42, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

Hello[edit]

Resilient Barnstar.png The Resilient Barnstar
I've seen your activity on evolution-related pages. I understand I was a little harsh on you previously, and I'm sorry. As we'll be working in close proximity on those pages I think I'd like to put that little episode behind me :-) Serviam (talk) 16:04, 22 September 2008 (UTC)
Thanks a lot! I kind of overreacted there- Kurt is a touchy subject for me. Erik the Red 2 ~~~~ 22:01, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

Removing reports from AIV[edit]

[3] - Did you look at their contribs? They basically nominated every small Linux distro for speedy deletion. Not exactly vandalism, but certainly not constructive contributions. Mr.Z-man 22:54, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

Not a blockable offense. They were not warned, as far as I can tell, and so were not doing anything in violation of warnings. Having a radical deletionist POV and exercising it (nominating the world for deletion) is not vandalism per se. Erik the Red 2 ~~~~ 22:59, 23 September 2008 (UTC)
As I said, not exactly vandalism, but still inappropriate and disruptive, and requiring admin attention. In the future please limit things like this to a comment, and leave it to an admin to evaluate. Mr.Z-man 23:09, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

Your sig[edit]

Hey, um per Wikipedia:Requests for arbitration/-Ril-, you may want to remove the ~~~~ from your signature, as it could be confusing. Just wanted to let you know. « Gonzo fan2007 (talk) @ 03:40, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

I don't think that it's an issue, as it includes my username and tiles in different colors, unlike Ril's, which is just standard, black tildes. Erik the Red 2 ~~~~ 12:47, 24 September 2008 (UTC)
That's cool, I figured I would just let you know. « Gonzo fan2007 (talk) @ 01:27, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch[edit]

  • Thank you for your recent participation in the AFD which closed with a snow result of Keep. Unfortunately, the nominator is not content with this consensus and is now proposing that the article be merged. Please see discussion. Colonel Warden (talk) 20:55, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

Editor Review[edit]

Hey, thanks for that :). I'm definetly going to take those pointers to heart, although i'm not currently looking for any kind of admin rights; my current tasks (and there's a long, long list of things to do) don't require them. It's still nice to get affirmation that i'm doing the right sort of thing, especially from someone who opposed my previous RfA (and kudos, btw, on your attitude to the whole userboxen thing; i note it's come come up one SoWhy's RfA now too). Ironholds 01:16, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

Oh god. Don't get me started. Thanks for the kind words, Erik the Red 2 ~~~~ 01:53, 25 September 2008 (UTC)
No problemo. I'd advise avoiding the SW discussion; it's getting nasty. Ironholds 01:55, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

RE: Family tree of the Greek gods[edit]

Hi. This is somewhat ironic, but 83.226.64.212 (the IP who's edit you reverted back to mine, and left a comment with) is me. The family tree is still incomplete, I didn't have time to finish it. But tbh, it was just way too incomprehensible before. But the thing is, now that you've reverted it, it doesn't even include any of the Olympian gods, which is a bit silly. --Yenemus (talk) 09:40, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

Hurricane Kate (2003)- Good pic.jpg Thank you for supporting me in my RfA, which passed with a count of (154/3/2).

You were the first to mention Bob Dylan. You win a barnstar. Of course, there is no barnstar. Unless you want to plaster one here your-fine-self :-). Thanks for your contributions to my talkpage EtR, be well :-) Keeper ǀ 76 21:58, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

Sorry about that[edit]

that was a complete accident and I did not mean to delete your comment on the ANI board. I actually replied to it after your re-posted it. --Einsteindonut (talk) 23:30, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

Ah, don't worry about it. We all make mistakes. :) 00:13, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

RfA opposition[edit]

No matter what anyone else says, this will always trump any other oppose as the most epic of all time. "He would make a great admin, it's just so suspicious!"

That sounds like a challenge. ;-) Axl ¤ [Talk] 19:34, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

Image of the flying spaghetti monster[edit]

Hi. I'm user 80.30.243.29, (also user 3coma14 in spanish wikipedia and wiki commons). Don't trully understand the reason for the deletion of the picture; I thougt it was relevant (maybe you don´t, but it was'nt in any case an experiment) :-O ¿Do you have any especial criteria or policy to decide when pictures are appropiated? Sincerely, don't understand the problem... Beg you perdon if this message may sound too rude. It's only because my english is not as good as it should. :-) --80.30.243.29 (talk) 13:20, 2 October 2008 (UTC) Hi again, I decided to create my own page here in the english wikipedia (it's free) XD --3coma14 (talk) 16:03, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

It might have been relevant, might not have been, just an image was inappropriate in that place, I think that it is a good image, and you should discuss it on the talk page of the article for where to put it in. Erik the Red 2 ~~~~ 23:46, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

I'd strongly recommend using the prototype RFA (although I'm undecided about the overall merit of the the fromat). Your total edit count may be a bit low for some and a full and frank discussion will probably benefit rather than hinder. Pedro :  Chat  20:01, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
Yup, that's what I've been recruited for, I wouldn't have accepted any offer otherwise because it would probably tank the RfA. Erik the Red 2 ~~~~ 20:04, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

(outdent) OK, I'll write up a nom statement as soon as I can once Ironhold's RFA is over (or whenever, I haven't been following the discussion on that RFA or on WT:RFA very closely, so I don't know exactly when you want to start) J.delanoygabsadds 03:58, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

FYI[edit]

This [4] which you corrected today, began as a bogus entry by the banned user User:Ron liebman which George saw fit to leave in place. Liebman is basically an idiot who keeps turning up now and then after having been banned over a year ago for continual disruption. He's a self-styled baseball trivia expert who is in fact a laughingstock at SABR, only he doesn't know that (unless he's reading this). He can't be fully stopped, because he does his "work" at the N.Y. Public Library system, and an IP block would end up blocking every library user. He's a pest who turns up every week or so, but that's about it. Thanks fer listenin'. :) Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? 22:32, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

No, I knew, and I hate sockpuppets and impostors as much as the next guy. I just wanted to format the talk page correctly, because otherwise the following sections would be formatted as subsections. Erik the Red 2 ~~~~ 02:05, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

Napoleon[edit]

Erik, regarding your recent edit to the Napoleon article. I've been working hard on this article and improving the references in response to peer review. Your recent good faith revert reinserted an error into the archer reference and removed references I had spent time researching. How do you justify claiming a source at http://web2.airmail.net, whose reliablity is questioned at peer review, is better quality than a source published by Random House? Tom B (talk) 23:50, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, that was a mistake. I when viewing an old diff to access the old source, I accidentally clicked on a different link, which was a very reliable source. Erik the Red 2 ~~~~ 01:17, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

Hey are you an admin?[edit]

Because it seems like you are acting like one the way you are threatening me and reverting everything I edit. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Thegoodlocust (talkcontribs) 05:56, 15 October 2008 (UTC)

I'm not an admin, however any user can revert biased, policy violating edits. How have I threatened you? Erik the Red 2 ~~~~ 12:21, 15 October 2008 (UTC)
This was a threat. If you didn't mean it to be a threat then you need to work on your communication skills. My edits were plainly not disruptive and I feel you are just trying to shut me up.In fact, I feel your edits are clearly disruptive in how you are preventing any and all changes to the Barack Obama article without your pre-approval. I shudder to think that you have aspirations to become an admin, but I guess when you go around acting like you are an admin with such clear warnings you don't really need the actual power or responsibility. TheGoodLocust (talk) 16:57, 15 October 2008 (UTC)
It was not a threat but merely a warning. You get blocked and come back and keep making the exact same kind of edits that got you blocked in the first place. You are inserting random, irrelevant trivia that only serves to disparage Obama onto his article, and are harassing me on my talk page. That deserves a warning.

I specifically said on that page, that I WAS GETTING STARTED. Sheesh, I know that it's a crude couple sentences. Can't you wait a second, when I specifically note that I'm in the middle of writing the article!? I'm about to take a formal complaint out on you.TCO (talk) 20:27, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

Dude, chill. I just added tags to attract more editors to the page in order to expand the article. Erik the Red 2 ~~~~ 20:28, 18 October 2008 (UTC)
I'm literally minutes from putting it in and I'm working on links, yada yada...and I said that I was getting started. Sheesh. I don't think those userboxes help. They drive deletionism. Will let you know how many CONTENT-ADDERS get "driven there", by the boxes. Instead I have a deletion notice sitting there like a turd.
That was someone else who added the deletion tag. Please stop attacking me. Erik the Red 2 ~~~~ 20:32, 18 October 2008 (UTC)
Go add some content or send me some editors who want to do so. Your boxes (literally minutes after my posting and while I'm IN THE MIDDLE of writing the article) have a negative effect, not a positive one. If you want to "help", go advertise for me on some relevant category or project site, so I get some content-writers to help me.TCO (talk) 20:38, 18 October 2008 (UTC)
I can't write the article because I have not read the book and it has almost zero sources about it. Please stop harrassing me. Erik the Red 2 ~~~~ 20:40, 18 October 2008 (UTC)
Ok, well since your stated rationale is driving to drive editors to improve the article, why don't you make a post on the discussion page that encourages that? —Preceding unsigned comment added by TCO (talkcontribs) 20:45, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

Boyan Josic[edit]

Friendly question on Boyan Josic. You placed an A7 tag on the article, but I'm seeing weak claims of notability (CEO). Is there something going on here that I'm not seeing that would make speedy deletion the right course instead of prod/AfD? Thanks!--Fabrictramp | talk to me 20:53, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

My mistake. An AfD might be more appropriate. I'll start one. Thanks for the reminder. :) Erik the Red 2 ~~~~ 20:54, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

Barrack Obama / William Ayers controversy - Stop trying to hiding information.[edit]

On December 21, 1997, Barack Obama wrote a short review [5][6][7] of William Ayers’ book A Kind and Just Parent: The Children of Juvenile Court[8], which had recently been published by Beacon Press. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Dmsetser (talkcontribs) 00:54, 20 October 2008 (UTC)

The information is not relevant at all to the article. See WP:UNDUE. Erik the Red 2 ~~~~ 00:56, 20 October 2008 (UTC)
The information is relevant to the article. It is a neutral fact published in the Chicago Tribune. It shows a linkage between William Ayers and Barack Obama. How is that irrelevant. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Dmsetser (talkcontribs) 01:04, 20 October 2008 (UTC)
Please stop trolling, and try to sign your username. Not every fact that exists merits entry into Wikipedia; the Chicago Tribune publishes a lot of irrelevant material. It doesn't show a linkage between the two, I've reviewed books before, am I suddenly "linked" to them? Drawing a conclusion from that source is original synthesis.

POV push[edit]

I have a nasty message on my talk page starting as calling me 'pal'...

That doesn't sound like the Wiki five pillars to me...but is actually bullying and rather attempt at intimidation, rather than substantiation of claims of inaccuracy. Goes on to claim he has fellow 'pals who will back him up.' This sounds strangely like Brooklyn justice to me, collusive tyranny to be more precise, and not collaborative discourse of the nature I expect on Jimmy Wales' Wikipedia.

The poster who didn't sign goes on to refer to some of my material as Nonsense from a country he names in a denigrating manner.

The only substantive challenge to my post was saying it was 'without references'. But, I did include those references when I found them citing academic work that contributes to the understanding of the article, and the controversies surrounding the current POV expressed. My additions give the article a more neutral point of view than the none currently dominant in the article, and illuminates for the reader about the nature of controversy that extends into our current affairs.

Please advise what POV push means if that is a wikipedia term of art, and what I need to do to reinstate my additions to the article in a civilised and well adjudicated and public manner.

regarding your views on me[edit]

okay so you've been monitoring me for a while now, i guess it could help because im still a rookie, but.

okay, you say that im a high profilic nationalist POV editor, right? well, you are wrong on saying im a high profilic editor, frw know me (not counting on whoever those was that spied on me) and also. MY POV is not biased, at least not yet from my edits, okay, so i created the one china template, but if that makes me an ultranationalist(which i presume is a bad thing judjing from what you say), does all those free tibet/taiwan/east turkestan templates remain okay? all those free tibet and whatever separtist leiency editors. why arnt they been banned then if opposing their views makes me elgible for a ban? wikipedia is neutral and so, why cant i have my views if thay are allowed to have theirs? just because these views clash? Btzkillerv (talk) 19:57, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

It is not an eye-for-an-eye system here. If you feel the editing or actions of others are biased, you should speak up and try to end that bias, rather than reciprocating with your own. Erik the Red 2 ~~~~ 00:25, 21 November 2008 (UTC)
yeah yeah suuure. so, you mean that wikipedis is okay for free tibetan (or free whatever) separtists to roam this wiki and yet I CANT OPPOSE THAT IN MY VIEWS!? what do you think wikipedia is? icant change someone's mind just for the sake of it,and they are allowed to express their views, since when does it say i cant support the unity of the so-called opressed parts of china? EH? so, i'm a criminal JUST BECAUSE I DONT SHARE THEIR VIEWS AND INSTEAD OPPOSE IT!? and foryour infomation on wehrmachtvnn, i already changed the biased bits! and what eye-for-eye? when did you find me putting biased bits in articles!? apparantly all those free tibet/taiwan/east turkestan templates are okay because it obeys the wikipedia rules, so what rule did my template break!?

A special mention goes out to Stwalkerster and Pedro for nominating me, thanks a lot for having trust in me! In response to the neutrals, I will try to double check articles that have been tagged for speedy deletion before I CSD them and will start off slowly with the drama boards of ANI and AN to ensure that I get used to them. In response to the oppose !votes on my RfA, I will check that any images I use meet the non-free content criteria and will attempt to handle any disputes or queries as well as I can. If you need my help at all, feel free to simply ask at my talk page and I'll see if I can help.

Hi Erik the Red 2. My name is Mike Lyons and I am a doctoral student at Indiana University. I am conducting research on the writing and editing of high traffic “current events” articles on Wikipedia.

I was hoping you would agree to fill out a brief survey about your experience. This study aims to help expand our thinking about collaborative knowledge production. Believe me I share your likely disdain for surveys but your participation would be immensely helpful in making the study a success. A link to the survey is included below.

Bibliophily[edit]

I was just about to rename the article entitled "Bibliophilia" as "Bibliophily" on the grounds that the former is not an English word (not in the OED, not in the British National Corpus, not in any other dictionary I can lay my hands on), whereas the latter is, when I noticed that you'd made the reverse change. So, to avoid any unpleasantness, I thought I'd better consult before I did. Have you any evidence for the existence of the word "bibliophilia" in an authoritative source for the English language? If so, I shall refrain; if not, I shall make the change.Лудольф (talk) 13:24, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
