Deletion of Interbeing Facilitation System article[edit]

You recently deleted an article that I authored. I understand why and get that since the concept of interbeing facilitation systems is quite new and hasn't received attention from "reliable sources" that it is perhaps too new for inclusion in Wikipedia. Is there any way for me to get the text that I wrote back? I'd at least like to have a copy of what I wrote so that I can put it back up after adding in the relevant references to reliable sources. Thanks.

Scheiner Law Group[edit]

Hi Bearian. Can you tell me what happened to the edit history of Scheiner Law Group? It seems to have disappeared prior to your Sept 15 edit, but I don't know why. --Dr. Fleischman (talk)

It was erased by another admin when the article was deleted. I can try to resurrect some of it from the dead. Bearian (talk) 19:04, 8 October 2014 (UTC)
I restored the entire history, as you requested. Bearian (talk) 19:07, 8 October 2014 (UTC)

New York state elections[edit]

None of the election articles has any historical context info in the lede. These elections formerly happened every year, now every two years, independent of what was going on in the world. To date the election from some other event (for example, one year after the beginning of the big depression, twelve years after the construction of the Eiffel Tower, sixteen years after the death of President Washington) is in my opinion out of scope. Major events may be added in the Background (in older articles called "History") section, if they had a direct influence (explain why) in the election. Kraxler (talk) 13:31, 9 October 2014 (UTC)

A question[edit]

Hello dear Bearian. I have a question - did you see this (?) - http://www.addictinginfo.org/2014/09/06/its-official-president-obama-is-the-best-economic-president-in-modern-times/ . It is based on Forbes's report. Does this information worth to be written in the Barack Obama article or no? Thanks in advance for your opinion. M.Karelin (talk) 19:50, 12 October 2014 (UTC)

No. First off, the source and the source it is based on are unreliable and opinion-laded. Secondly, the main Obama article is so long that nothing more can be added without splitting it further. Bearian (talk) 16:04, 13 October 2014 (UTC)

AfD comment[edit]

Your paraphrase of Winston Churchill's "riddle wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma" quote had me laughing out loud. Cheers. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 17:52, 13 October 2014 (UTC)

You are welcome. I think it livened up a contentious discussion. Bearian (talk) 01:07, 14 October 2014 (UTC)
@Bearian: Yes, and you managed not to get called out for being a lawyer-editor, even as you expressed essentially the same arguments and concerns I did. If I could go back in time five and a half years, I would almost certainly choose a different user name. Cheers, counselor. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 03:57, 14 October 2014 (UTC)
Sigh. It's sort of the opposite of the situation of the Turkish astronomer who discovers The Little Prince's asteroid: "But he was in Turkish costume, and so nobody would believe what he said." Bearian (talk) 12:45, 14 October 2014 (UTC)
That's an appropriate, if somewhat obscure metaphor. Or, if you're feeling biblical: "For Jesus himself testified, that a prophet hath no honour in his own country." John 4:44 (KJV) Cheers. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 13:31, 14 October 2014 (UTC)

Becky Sayles, a speech by a United States politician seems to get its own article, but one by a leader elsewhere in the world tends to get deleted.

Deletion discussion about Wikipedia:WikiProject Deletion sorting/Nevada[edit]

Hello, Bearian,

I wanted to let you know that there's a discussion about whether it should be deleted. Your comments are welcome.

If you're new to the process, articles for deletion is a group discussion (not a vote!) that usually lasts seven days. If you need it, there is a guide on how to contribute. Last but not least, you are highly encouraged to continue improving the article; just be sure not to remove the tag about the deletion nomination from the top. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2602:306:CE9A:860:DD6B:693A:ACF:B874 (talk) 18:46, 27 November 2014 (UTC)

PROD vs Redirect[edit]

I stumbled on this thread by pure coincidence and I saw you didn't really get a direct reply. DePRODing to create a redirect is perfectly legitimate. I do it all the time if it's appropriate. Our actual deletion policy leans towards being inclusive and recommends redirecting rather than outright deletion. If you create such a redirect however, do remember to include the :R from...' template on the redirect page so that it loads the correct message and populates the related cat. For example, a school redirect would have this template {{R from school}} which creates a message for anyone who sees the redirect rather than the target page. --Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 13:38, 29 November 2014 (UTC)

Lazurus999[edit]

I suspect (well, based on what he said on my talk page, I know for sure) that User:Lazurus999, whom you just blocked, is a sockpuppet of User:Wikiblanks. Wikiblanks was blocked yesterday for edit warring, then blocked again about 2 hours later for continuing the edit war with the sockpuppet User:Childprotect1 (report). Is it worth filing another sockpuppet report for Lazarus999 and Wikiblanks? Given the comments Wikiblanks made on his own talk page [2] [3] shortly after you blocked Lazurus999, I think it's unlikely Wikiblanks won't send me more legal threats/insults or make more sockpuppets. Thanks, Tiller54 (talk) 22:36, 2 December 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for explaining your rationale carefully; I've prodded a lot of this user's edited-too-much-for-G5 stubs, basically just to get rid of ones that didn't appear to have a shred of notability, regardless of their topic. I'm much more in favor of redirecting than deleting, but when possible: as I explained when nominating the article for deletion just now, I don't see a good target.

FWIW, I indef-blocked this user. Bearian (talk) 14:09, 11 December 2014 (UTC)
You want to know how I managed to evade your blocking? Let me reason with you, do you like it if your father doing something on the internet, your father gets blocked unjustly and indefinitely without mercy and second chance? Do you like it if your mother doing something on the internet, your mother gets blocked unjustly and indefinitely? Do you like it if you sons or daughter get blocked unjustly and indefinitely just because of petty issues? If I am an admin and you are ordinary user, do you like it if I blocked you unjustly and indefinitely without a chance to change just because of petty issues? Just be in my shoes and see what happen if I do the same thing as you do towards me... Also, I am just creating an article to contribute to the wikipedia, and, all of a sudden you sent me a message of warning of vandalism. How can a wikipedian user who create a probable reasonable article doing a vandalism and even being blocked unjustly and indefinitely just because to advice you? Think about it... Anonsinim (talk) 13:04, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

Frozen[edit]

I'm contacting you because you were the last admin to edit the protection settings on Frozen (2013 film). Recently (last month or so) the page has suffered consistent vandalism and incompetent edits while only one IP edit has been accepted. Would another period of semi-protection be appropriate, so interest and so unconstructive edits might begin to wear off? BethNaught (talk) 22:07, 10 December 2014 (UTC)

Semi-protected for a period of 1 month. After 1 month the page will be automatically unprotected. Bearian (talk) 22:10, 10 December 2014 (UTC)

I saw those two reverts, to which you have admitted. I was warning you from doing it three times. I only warned you that you could face sanctions if you did it a third time. I noted, as well, that you've been called out before about your past edit warring. I didn't want to template you, but the next time, I'll be forced to do so, since you don't seem to comprehend subtle hints. Bearian (talk) 20:18, 15 December 2014 (UTC)
Pardon my interjection/interruption. While the WP:3RR provides a bright line, WP:Edit warring is more comprehensive and extends beyond 24 hours. I am passing no judgments here, but think that 'all the guns should be out on the table.' Happy editing to you both. 7&6=thirteen () 20:27, 15 December 2014 (UTC)

We may have had our differences at times, but I think we can all agree you sure were a valued administrator, and your presence will certainly be missed. I wish you all the very best, Brian! Take care — MusikAnimal talk 23:29, 16 January 2015 (UTC)
Thank you, MusikAnimal, I hope we disagreed without being disagreeable. Bearian (talk) 21:34, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

Your userrights[edit]

I've granted you rollback and autopatrolled, since I figured it might sometimes be inconvenient for you not to have those. I'd be happy to grant you any other rights that are included in the admin package; do you want any of them? Template editor and IPBE particularly come to mind, but I don't think I ought to grant them without asking first. Of course I'll happily remove rollback and/or autopatrolled if you don't want them. Nyttend (talk) 00:14, 17 January 2015 (UTC)

Those are fine, Nyttend, and thank you for being proactive. Bearian (talk) 21:35, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

Thank you from me as well, Bearian. I remember your RfA from all those years ago and while I respect your decision to step down from your adminship, it is a shame that your service as an administrator has come to an end...at least for now; I do hope that you'll pick the mop up again one day.

Requesting an RFA nomination[edit]

Hi Bearian,

I requested an RFA nomination back in December 2013, but you were busy at the time, so I decided to self-nominate. That went down like a lead balloon, but it's been 15 months since then. I've made another 10,000 edits and addressed the concerns of many of the opposers. Since you were willing to nominate me last time, would you be willing to do so now? Thanks, --Jakob (talk) 20:41, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

Sorry, I'm too busy off-Wiki to do you justice. I will vote for you! Bearian (talk) 00:12, 24 March 2015 (UTC)

Crispus[edit]

When I saw Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Fletcher Thornton was deleted for being a WP:BLP1E I saw WP:ONEEVENT. I saw that with Crispus Attucks "Little is known for certain about Attucks beyond that he, along with Samuel Gray and James Caldwell, died "on the spot" during the incident." With no history and known for a single event, what made him notable? Couldn't he be merged into Boston Massacre ? Maybe there is a problem with WP policy on this one since everyone in the AFD and you believe it shouldn't be deleted or even nominated. BTW, my cousin just graduated from BHSS. CrazyAces489 (talk) 06:34, 14 April 2015 (UTC)

CrazyAces489, sometimes WP:BLP1E is invoked when really the editors don't want an article about an accused criminal on Wikipedia, for whatever motives. While little is really known about Crispus Attucks, his contribution to the American Revolution received much notice in the 1970s during the run-up to the Bicentennial; he was lauded with scholarly and popular articles in the media, a museum was dedicated to his honor, and stamps were issued with his supposed likeness. All of that indicates notability. Fletcher Thornton has had none of that attention in the past 40 years. Bearian (talk) 17:32, 14 April 2015 (UTC)
With little known about him, what can they really write about him? It seems strange, but maybe it is wikipolicies that are strange to me. CrazyAces489 (talk) 17:37, 14 April 2015 (UTC)
We don't know much about Mary Magdalen either, or lots of other historical figures, but their impact on history is clear; that's what makes them notable. Bearian (talk) 18:02, 14 April 2015 (UTC)
  • ONEEVENT makes exceptions for those who are historically significant. For example, Lee Harvey Oswald is essentially famous for only one event, but it was historically significant. I'd submit to you that a person who is historically significant enough to be featured on a US coin and have numerous (not just one) schools in multiples states named after them, they were probably notable.Niteshift36 (talk) 21:31, 14 April 2015 (UTC)
Niteshift, is there a reason why you're on almost every page I go to? It's like you want us to be besties? I can be ok with that, but i'm just wondering. CrazyAces489 (talk) 21:48, 14 April 2015 (UTC)
  • Actually, I'm not. But you can keep pretending that if you like. Niteshift36 (talk) 00:08, 15 April 2015 (UTC)
It sure is a lot of them. [12] CrazyAces489 (talk) 15:52, 15 April 2015 (UTC)
  • Considering that I have over 29,000 edits, coming across you on a handful of articles is hardly noteworthy. Especially when you remove the ones where we actually didn't cross paths. But considering you're coming to my page to post, you'd be fairly hard pressed to make yourself the victim. Niteshift36 (talk) 02:49, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
