Pope Benedict XVI GAR notice[edit]

Pope Benedict XVI has been nominated for a good article reassessment. Please leave your comments and help us to return the article to good article quality. If concerns are not addressed during the review period, the good article status will be removed from the article. Reviewers' concerns are here.--TonyTheTiger (t/c/bio/WP:CHICAGO/WP:LOTM) 00:42, 4 June 2009 (UTC)

You removed a POV tag from the RCC page[edit]

There is an ongoing debate on the talk page as to the neutrality of the RCC entry. It is vandalism to remove a POV tag while debate is ongoing and issues unresolved and I will report it as such if you do it again.Haldraper (talk) 14:34, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

It's not a debate when it's you against all the other editors, Haldraper. When consensus is reached to remove the tag, then it can be removed. Your disagreement with that decision does not trump, and does not mean that "debate is ongoing". --anietor (talk) 14:52, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

Floating table[edit]

Thanks for fixing the table. I quite failed to work out what was wrong. Soidi (talk) 15:37, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

WP:Hornbook -- a new WP:Law task force for the J.D. curriculum[edit]

Hi Anietor,

I'm asking Wikipedians who are interested in United States legal articles to take a look at WP:Hornbook, the new "JD curriculum task force".

Our mission is to assimilate into Wikipedia all the insights of an American law school education, by reducing hornbooks to footnotes.

  • Over the course of a semester, each subpage will shift its focus to track the unfolding curriculum(s) for classes using that casebook around the country.
  • It will also feature an extensive, hyperlinked "index" or "outline" to that casebook, pointing to pages, headers, or {{anchors}} in Wikipedia (example).
  • Individual law schools can freely adapt our casebook outlines to the idiosyncratic curriculum devised by each individual professor.
  • I'm encouraging law students around the country to create local chapters of the club I'm starting at my own law school, "Student WP:Hornbook Editors". Using WP:Hornbook as our headquarters, we're hoping to create a study group so inclusive that nobody will dare not join.

What you can do now:

1. Add WP:Hornbook to your watchlist, {{User Hornbook}} to your userpage, and ~~~~ to Wikipedia:Hornbook/participants.
2. If you're a law student,
(You don't have to start the club, or even be involved in it; just help direct me to someone who might.)
3. Introduce yourself to me. Law editors on Wikipedia are a scarce commodity. Do knock on my talk page if there's an article you'd like help on.

Naming Conflicts Trouble[edit]

There has been another attempt to change/reverse the policy on self-identifying names - which would re-open many naming arguments on Wikipedia including Catholic Church. Having failed to gain consensus for changing the policy on the article talk page, (Wikipedia_talk:Naming_conflict), and despite attempts to reach a compromise on trimming the existing wording, Kotniski and some of his allies have attempted to reverse the policy unilaterally and moved the debate to Wikipedia_talk:Naming_conventions#Is_there_consensus_for_this_or_not.3F. We need to preserve the original guidance. Following breach of the compromise I have reverted the original wording, extant since 2005. Can you please add your comment at the new discussion. Xandar 23:57, 16 August 2009 (UTC)

Please Don't template the regulars, and please don't respond to canvassing. Xandar is relying on his own interpretation of a guideline which disagrees with practice, many other guidelines, and policy, to push a POV; if he has made an effort at compromise, it is invisible to me. Septentrionalis PMAnderson 02:41, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

Naming conflict page[edit]

Pmanderson has reverted the original text of the Wikipedia:Naming conflict page several times to an unagreed version that is the reverse of the long-standing policy. I have uused my three reverts, so can you, or someone else please revert the page to its last version by me - which is the long-established original text? I have asked for page protection, but it is important that the guideline is not compromised. Xandar 20:15, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

I asked Anietor not to template me; it's a discourtesy. If he does so again, I will seek the appropriate remedy. If he can explain how interrupting a productive discussion by screaming in full caps is not a tirade, I shall be glad to listen to his explanation. Septentrionalis PMAnderson 03:28, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
Um..why are you guys having an argument with each other on my talk page? Xander, no need to canvas. Pmanderson, if you think Xander is canvassing, tell him directly, not me (one of the people canvassed, who have no control). You don't blame someone for GETTING a crank call, do you? And Pmanderson, calm down and stop making personal attacks against Xander. Maybe he's attacked you before...I don't know. I do know that two wrongs don't make a right. Let's all grow up, please....or at least don't clutter my talk page with silliness I'm not part of. Thanks! --anietor (talk) 04:01, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
I asked you to stop using templates on my talk page. I also ask you not to assume bad faith; calling a tirade a tirade, and the linked edit is one, is not a personal attack. Also, your analogy is not on all fours: you responded to the spam by doing what Xandar wished. Septentrionalis PMAnderson 04:04, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
My goodness, Pmanderson. What part of stop clogging up my talk page do you not understand? Take it up with Xander, and stop whining because I caught you making personal attacks and didn't catch others. As far as templates go, add more to my talk page here if you want another template. I have no patience for editors like you who have to get the last word in on everything, even when they're wrong. --anietor (talk) 04:10, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
M, PMA and co are reverting to edit-warring and making threats on the Naming Conflicts page. This really has got to end. They clearly have no intention of trying to forge consensus or listening to what other Wikipedians say. Xandar 22:37, 29 August 2009 (UTC)
Yes, I've noticed, and have already reverted a mega-edit that had no consensus (before the above posting, by the way. So it wasn't the result of any alleged "canvassing", another charge that seems to be flying around liberally and inaccurately lately). --anietor (talk) 00:20, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

No. The ArbCom has considered this matter; even the wider ban applies to the Manual of Style and its talk pages, not to naming conventions. Septentrionalis PMAnderson 21:43, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

If I see you abuse Twinkle again, as you did here, I'll blacklist you from it. Hesperian 23:36, 26 October 2009 (UTC)

Your tagging of my talk page[edit]

I certainly shall not revert it: it hugely amuses me. But you will find that writing prose to argue your case tends to cut more ice with established editors who, however much you may disagree with their views, tend not to indulge in vandalism. Before doing that to someone who might not be so amused, I suggest that you check out their edit history and see whether they seem to have vandalistic habits or not. Best wishes, Ian Spackman (talk) 21:03, 26 November 2009 (UTC)

P.S. Before accusing anybody of being a Vandal—an unwanted Medieval intruder—, you might need to do some historical research: it is quite possible that you would discover that they were in reality a Goth or a Visigoth. Or even a Saracen or a Norman. Ian Spackman (talk) 21:07, 26 November 2009 (UTC)
Always glad to amuse people! Of course, your amusement should be mixed with some sense of remorse, for posting POV silliness in the article. And as you can see, my revert was found to be warranted and supported, while your attempt to cry foul was seen for what it was. Frankly, I don't care if you are an "established" editor or not. If you vandalize, you'll be called on it. --anietor (talk) 02:03, 28 November 2009 (UTC)

Blacklist Request from Twinkle Declined[edit]

In accordance with my comment above:

If I see you abuse Twinkle again, as you did here, I'll blacklist you from it. Hesperian 23:36, 26 October 2009 (UTC)

I have blacklisted you from Twinkle for misuse of rollback and warnings. Diffs: [1][2] Hesperian 01:34, 27 November 2009 (UTC)

ANI notified. Hesperian 01:46, 27 November 2009 (UTC)
Since several adminsestablished editors disagreed that it was inappropriate to tag those edits as vandalism, I have removed you from the blacklist. However, I would urge caution going forward -- please remember to use the "revert" button instead of "revert vandalism" whenever there could be doubt. --SarekOfVulcan (talk) 15:33, 27 November 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for the note, Sarek. I resisted commenting on the blacklist suggestion myself to avoid a protracted debate, and am glad I did so! I appreciate the cautionary note as well. Cheers. --anietor (talk) 17:01, 27 November 2009 (UTC)
