Wishing Andonic a very happy adminship anniversary on behalf of the Wikipedia Birthday Committee!

Long time, no see. I've got a solo FAC running and was reminiscing about the glorious days of 6-way FA noms. Good times! It's nice to see you're still around, at least sometimes. Keilana|Parlez ici 20:09, 23 May 2012 (UTC)

I never really expected to be back, it just sort of happened and now I've got all kinds of projects! :) It's great to hear from you too. We should do a collab sometime. So, how have you been? Keilana|Parlez ici 22:46, 23 May 2012 (UTC)
Replied via email, let's move the conversation there? Keilana|Parlez ici 23:15, 23 May 2012 (UTC)

Help with Latvian mythology[edit]

Hi Andonic,

A few other editors and I are involved in a discussion at Talk:Latvian mythology#Latvian mythology or Baltic mythology? about whetherLatvian mythology (and, by extension, other Baltic mythology articles like Lithuanian mythology) are deserving of their own articles or whether they should be merged into Baltic mythology, which should be written to explain the similarities and differences between them?

You seem to be involved with WP:Wikiproject Mythology and your knowledge of writing mythology articles could be a great help in our discussion.

Kind regards, Matt (talk) 21:58, 22 July 2012 (UTC)

Matt, just so you know, Andonic is pretty much inactive. (However, he still owes me an email...)Keilana|Parlez ici 22:58, 22 July 2012 (UTC)
Haha, as Keilana so kindly pointed out, I'm pretty much out of the picture by this point, sorry to disappoint. Regarding your predicament though, in a nutshell my opinion regarding whether prospective articles should be creative is, if someone's willing to write it, might as well give it a chance. Worst case scenario you can just merge the new content back later. It's a fluid encyclopedia, plenty of room for experimentation and growth. (@Keilana: I will dig it out of the lost forgotten depths of my inbox and reply later today haha). · Andonic contact 23:28, 22 July 2012 (UTC)
For someone "out of the picture", that was damn fast. Looking forward to your email! Keilana|Parlez ici 23:32, 22 July 2012 (UTC)
E-mail notifications. ;) · Andonic contact 23:38, 22 July 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for the clarification, guys. Before messaging Andonic, I checked his contributions and saw that his last edit was 5 July 2012, so I figured that he edited recently enough to at least give the discussion a quick look. Thanks for getting back to me, though. Kind regards, Matt (talk) 23:53, 22 July 2012 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:RaFCaw-boxart.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:RaFCaw-boxart.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 11:31, 14 September 2012 (UTC)


Hi Andonic, I'm kind of familiar with Wikipedia, but not super familiar with the way it works editing wise. I'm trying to get protected or semi-protected the articles for Joe Garcia and David Rivera. The two are in a tough congressional race in South Florida and there seems to be an increasingly frequent amount of vandalism on the former and deletion of unsavoury content for the latter. I think it would do both the articles well if they remained protected or semi-protected until a few days after the election November 6th. Digitall565 (talk) 04:46, 30 October 2012 (UTC)

BLOCKED again?[edit]

Edit Request[edit]

Talk:Bitcoin Thanks. -Bitcoin (talk) 10:06, 31 October 2012 (UTC)


yeah, I still edit from time to time. Enigmamsg 19:43, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

== Bitcoin ==

WP:RFUP suggested that I bring this here first, but full-protection may no longer be needed at the Bitcoin article. The page was protected due to a dispute between several editors, but it turns out that all of the editors on one "side" of the various disputes are all confirmed sockpuppets of HowardStrong, and the ~10 accounts have been blocked. Given that the "dispute" was a major sockpuppetry issue that is now resolved, I think changing the article's status to semi-protection might be good so that the editors that have discussed changes on the talk page can implement them. I wouldn't object to you disagreeing as an uninvolved administrator, I just wanted to inform you of the situation. - SudoGhost 05:03, 4 November 2012 (UTC)

Judging from Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/HowardStrong#08 November 2012, it may be too soon to lift the protection. EdJohnston (talk) 16:51, 9 November 2012 (UTC)

Given that the page has been fully protected for a month and half (and that semi protection is working on the talk page) how would you feel about dropping the protection on Bitcoin down to a semi? Callanecc (talkcontribslogs) 12:55, 18 December 2012 (UTC)

I'll post on the articles talk page to see if others chime in. I have no problem with unprotecting personally, it's been a while. · Andonic contact 13:21, 18 December 2012 (UTC)

Thoughts on a Category?[edit]

[1] Should it exist? Enigmamsg 23:42, 24 December 2012 (UTC)

I didn't create it. I just came across it. There's no real definition so I don't understand the category or how one would justify adding it to pages. Just because someone has lived in multiple countries? Perpetual traveler would mean to me that they're moving around several times a year, and that's not going to be documented, most likely. Enigmamsg 05:07, 25 December 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, just looking for feedback. I guess I could go to CfD? Enigmamsg 17:24, 25 December 2012 (UTC)

User:Grimhelm/Tzatziki Squad/1340s[edit]

Hi Andonic,

This article has been inactive for some time, and I was wondering if we should move it into the Wikipedia article on it.

Thanks, Matty.007 19:37, 12 June 2013 (UTC)

Dota 2 protection status[edit]

I was wondering, when do you intend to restore the indefinite semi-protection status to Dota 2? While I want to make sure that the page is comprehensive, I also don't want to have it suddenly destabilized by I.P. addresses adding in game guide content or linking up action real-time strategy, prompting the reviewer to get the incorrect impression that it has been unstable all along.

Hey there! Just checking in to see how your review's coming along. I'm very much looking forward to what you have to say! DarthBotto talkcont 21:18, 30 September 2013 (UTC)
I just wanted to say that you've been fantastic thus far with your review and I find it amazing how the implementation of your ideas has caused the article to be systematically rebooted. Keep up the good work! ;) DarthBotto talkcont 22:01, 1 October 2013 (UTC)
An outsider posted on the GA nomination page, wondering if the article is still being reviewed. I pointed out, however, what you said and that you're pretty busy. You're still alive, right? :P DarthBotto talkcont 05:06, 24 October 2013 (UTC)

At the bottom of the Dota 2 talk page, a brand new contributor stated that they think the page needs more images, videos and sounds. Now, I personally don't think any of those assets would really help, but what do you think, considering that you're reviewing? DarthBotto talkcont 21:10, 25 October 2013 (UTC)

Dota 2 review[edit]

I figured I'd start a new thread on your page, so we can communicate strictly for the GAN.

Now, I took the liberty of marking your pointers that are unquestionably fixed as complete. The ones I did not mark as complete are the ones that I feel are at your discretion for assessing, as they can be considered otherwise subjective. DarthBotto talkcont 22:42, 2 November 2013 (UTC)

I think it would be a good idea to continue with the GAN and see if we can get this thing done! We've done so well thus far, I'd like to get that momentum back! DarthBotto talkcont 21:43, 30 November 2013 (UTC)
You may have bitten off more than you could chew, but whenever we have worked together on this page, we have been very successful, so don't feel impotent, because we will finish it and it will be ready for Good Article status, if not close to Featured Article status. I too am busy with studies and projects- in fact, I have two research papers due this week, as well as two films in production. But, we'll get this done! ;) DarthBotto talkcont 20:13, 4 December 2013 (UTC)
I have implemented your suggestions to the best of my ability! DARTHBOTTO talkcont 21:19, 18 December 2013 (UTC)
I'm having trouble finding an reliable references that state, contrary to the references in the article, that Valve makes money via the Steam subscribers Dota 2 attracts. On another note, I'm not exactly sure what to put in the proposed beta section, which is a problem on my end. DARTHBOTTO talkcont 05:29, 23 December 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for being so diligent with your review. We've done something that is very beneficial to the community and Dota franchise. :) DARTHBOTTO talkcont 20:23, 29 December 2013 (UTC)

Age of Mythology's FAR[edit]

I have nominated Age of Mythology for a featured article review here. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets featured article criteria. Articles are typically reviewed for two weeks. If substantial concerns are not addressed during the review period, the article will be moved to the Featured Article Removal Candidates list for a further period, where editors may declare "Keep" or "Delist" the article's featured status. The instructions for the review process are here. GamerPro64 17:28, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

Protection of Trade Martin[edit]

Hi Andonic, I see you protected Trade Martin in 2010 due because of vandalism. The editing history and page views are both so low that it seems pending changes would be appropriate for this article. Regards, Crazynas t 01:30, 30 December 2013 (UTC)

Unprotection sounds great to me! Crazynas t 01:59, 30 December 2013 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Imperial Walker.jpg[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:Imperial Walker.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. -- ТимофейЛееСуда. 20:35, 9 February 2014 (UTC)

Request for comment[edit]

Hello there, a proposal regarding pre-adminship review has been raised at Village pump by Anna Frodesiak. Your comments here is very much appreciated. Many thanks. Jim Carter through MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 06:46, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

Dota 2 FAC[edit]

Hello. As you have previously been involved with the milestones for the Dota 2 article by giving input, I figured it would be courteous to notify you that said article is up for Featured Article status. I am welcoming you to give your input! DARTHBOTTO talkcont 18:36, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

WikiProject Military history coordinator election[edit]

Greetings from WikiProject Military history! As a member of the project, you are invited to take part in our annual project coordinator election, which will determine our coordinators for the next twelve months.

John Huppenthal[edit]

You protected John Huppenthal, apparently based on claims made at Reddit. Check the article history -- the edits cited on Reddit were from about 4 years ago. There is no current evidence of COI editing, and there's only been one IP edit in the last 6 months or so. Beyond this, you protected the article on the day after Huppenthal's successor was sworn in. There's now zero chance of the "Politician's office likely editing the page," since the politician is no longer in office.

Given this background, it would make sense to revert your protection edit. Thanks. Fearofreprisal (talk) 04:10, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
