Disambiguation link notification for January 9[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Conceptual model, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Concurrency (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

A barnstar for you![edit]

RfC[edit]

If you really believe there is a consensus about including this BLP-related defamatory information, please ask for official closure of RfC discussion at Wikipedia:AN#Requests_for_closure. I did not do it only because I am sure there is no consensus based on the "head count" (3:2 excluding you as someone who originally placed this information and started RfC) and the sake of the argument. Thanks, My very best wishes (talk) 20:47, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

FYI. My very best wishes (talk) 13:55, 28 July 2013 (UTC)
And that was your response? My very best wishes (talk) 23:32, 28 July 2013 (UTC)
Here is an interesting essay... My very best wishes (talk) 03:12, 1 August 2013 (UTC)
Face-wink.svg Thanks. Tongue in cheek, but clever. I hope you are not saying that this is somehow relevant to our current discussion.
I read your announcement, I hope you have a good trip. Andrewaskew (talk) 04:00, 1 August 2013 (UTC)
Thanks. I do not mind informal discussion. I insist on exclusion of this material from this article because I read books by these historians, I found their work great, and I do believe the scandal should not be mentioned anywhere, unless this is absolutely necessary for the sake of the article (and ultimately the encyclopedia), but it is not. What I have here is a genuine BLP concern. But what is your motivation? I found it hard to believe that you struggle for the sake of encyclopedia because this particular example is not essential for this article, and arguably does not belong there at all (depending on definition of sockpuppetry). Just to win a content dispute? My very best wishes (talk) 14:30, 1 August 2013 (UTC)
I also don't mind a nice informal discussion. I'd much rather settle the matter in a nice civilised way than with an argument, some of the arguments on Wikipedia are truly ridiculous, but c'est la vie.
My motivation is to ensure the best version of the article Sockpuppet. As an editor, I prefer to work on abstract concerns: definitional issues, categorisation, scepticism, and especially humanities & media. I rather not get involved with biographies, simply because BLP issues seem to produce some of the fiercest arguments. (Not that I think BLP is unimportant.) What BLP means outside of biographies is that we cannot report anything that is improperly sourced or irrelevant to the matter at hand.
In this matter, the facts of the Figes case are important to illustrate sockpuppetry. While a raw definition is important, examples are also important to help readers to understand the matter. Furthermore, a list of examples provides a good jumping off point for readers looking to explore the issue further. We cannot, and should not, say anything more that what is said by our sources. We must use the sources for proper constuction of the article. We are not here to praise nor condemn, we let the facts speak for themselves, and leave it up to our readers to decide.
Ultimately, I struggle because I believe in Wikipedia. Just as the vandalism patrol is vital, so to is it vital for the long-term health and reputation of the Wikimedia project that pages not be decided by personal issues and bias. As we move in to a new phase, and a new generation of editors, these things become more and more important.
Happy editing. --Andrewaskew (talk) 03:41, 2 August 2013 (UTC)
So, you simply continue to insist that material about the scandal is extremely important to illustrate what sockpuppet is. However, I think it does not belong to the article at all (irrelevant as you said below) because it does not satisfy the most common definition of sockpuppetry. This is our disagreement. Unlike you, I have very low regard to Wikipedia (please see Official Disclaimer) and continue editing here only because I think this is still a useful, although heavily misused resource, and also because of my addiction. Honestly, I talked about Wikipedia with a number of my colleagues, and none of them held high regard for this place, whereas my closest and most important scientific collaborator demanded that I stopped editing here immediately, and for a number of very good reasons. My another colleague suggested to remove links from our new database to wikipedia as "unprofessional", and that is what we did after some discussion. Good luck, My very best wishes (talk) 05:11, 2 August 2013 (UTC)
I have a very high regard for Wikipedia, not because I think it is flawless, but perhaps because I am an optimist. I think that Wikipedia's (and humankind's) nature is revealed not in its failures, but in its successes. Ultimately Wikipedia can never be perfect, but by our actions we can make it a little better than yesterday. And on, and on. I can understand the position of your colleagues, but Wikipedia and academe serve slightly different purposes, even if both aim at the improvement of knowledge. Wikipedia involves the masses in education, it serves as an entry point to further research, it answers idle speculations. In short, Wikipedia does the job of an encyclopædia.
So I urge you to continue to edit. Keep faith in the project. It is only by the work of great editors that Wikipedia can continue to become what it can be. --Andrewaskew (talk) 06:06, 2 August 2013 (UTC)

The argument on chi force and Star Wars[edit]

Hello Andrew, my name is Jacob, And i want to be a little brief on some thing's between the two forces.

Now i have had a lot of conversations between chi and other mystical forces and how they are different. And i see you are a believer in Buddhism and the occult, but lets get to the very bottom. Lets start off with Star Wars, i want to bring to your very attention that the forces in Star Wars is based on supernatural events and not the force of nature. I will describe the forces, okay, you notice how "telekinesis" is mostly used in Star Wars, it is used by the top classes of Jedi including Yoda and Darth Vader and Luke Sky Walker, etc. Clearly some of you didn't quite understand what Yoda was saying in reference to Luke Sky Walker. When Yoda was saying to Luke, "Use the force around you Luke". He didn't met the force of nature, he met the force of "matter", i want you to clearly understand this. He met to use the force of matter by the influence of his mind, not nature not life force or Qi. He met "mind over matter of super consciousness". Now as for chi or Qi on the other hand, is unalike mind over matter. Chi is a physical power of inner force or inner strength, not the supernatural or mystical events. This is why some people and even my self get confused and frustrated on mystical forces and powers. I can't seem to understand why, why is that chi come in to place of everything in definition of "energy". I don't understand why, and I've been crying out loud on this subject for a long time. If you have any other opinions or preparations for this. Please start with this one, God bless.

One of your Book links is now a redirect.[edit]

Hello. Seeing a Mini_dental_implants (MDI) section in the Dental implant article, and a redirect at Mini dental implants (since it seems the articles were merged this summer) I went to the MDI page's What Links Here to clean up some links to that redirect page. As your User:Andrewaskew/Books/Medical Equipment links to both articles, I thought to let you know in case you might wish to remove your MDI link. --Egmonster (talk) 06:36, 9 September 2013 (UTC)
