Some easy work for you[edit]

Can you take a look at one of my reverts: [1] and go through the remaining edits. This is spamming for an IT consultancy through an anti-corruption portal. I came to it through the India page where this was added masquerading as a reference, and found that it's been added to a boat load of other articles and have had articles created using this! It's much easier than your corruption in Haryana article :) cheers. —SpacemanSpiff 19:50, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

Sure - it's getting a bit late here, but I'll be happy to have a look in the morning. -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 20:07, 25 June 2014 (UTC)
Oops, I forgot about this - I'll have a look as soon as I have some brain to spare! — Alan / Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 17:13, 30 June 2014 (UTC)


Good Tips, and got it now :-) A.Minkowiski _Lets t@lk 14:52, 28 June 2014 (UTC)

Your comments[edit]

I thought briefly about a flip response but decided a simple thank you would be better. Take care.--Bbb23 (talk) 02:23, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

You too. I used to have a gripe about a few specific admins, but I can't remember who they are now (and I remember one I was definitely wrong about)! I guess I should be a bit less snarky when I'm talking about admin recall really. Cheers -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 14:07, 30 June 2014 (UTC)


Pleased to meet you, Alan. Don't hesitate to drop me a line if I can ever be of assistance to you in a Wikipedia-related matter. —Tim //// Carrite (talk) 04:45, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

Very kind, thanks. It feels good to be out ;-) — Alan / Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 14:10, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

Arbitration Committee[edit]

Spoilsport!—we were trying to turn the Committee up to 11. Regards, Newyorkbrad (talk) 16:41, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

Hehe — Alan / Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 17:04, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

The Indian Graph[edit]

Hey there Alan, I messed up by marking The Indian Graph for deletion under CSD-A7. Sorry about that. Anyway I have listed the article at Afd here. Thank you.  NQ  talk 17:42, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

No problem. I suspect you're probably right with the AfD, but I haven't had time to look around and check notability yet — Alan / Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 18:16, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

That ANI[edit]

I emailed Oversight, gone now. Dougweller (talk) 12:09, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

Thanks — Alan / Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 12:12, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
@Dougweller: Actually, looking at the history, it all seems to be still there — Alan / Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 12:37, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
Actually, I see what's happened - the oversighter has only suppressed the one edit, where the material was added. But that doesn't work - all versions between that one and the edit in which it was removed need to be suppressed too. I'll email oversight. — Alan / Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 12:41, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
Oddly, the article that gave rise to the first of those allegations - Nair - has suddenly become a bit toxic again. And it involves someone who really should know better, given how long they've been a registered user. I've hit 3RR and they're not talking even after being informed of sanctions. This nonsense never goes away for long, does it? - Sitush (talk) 15:15, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
Looks like someone else has it covered, and hopefully an admin will step in and issue a sanctions-based block if it continues. I can't help seeing another organized attack here - I don't believe for a moment that Jerrysharma just happened to find that blog and those other things. — Alan / Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 16:36, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
Indeed. If you look at Jerrysharma's stuff on my talk page, they are quite obviously not the new user their account stats make them out to be - too familiar with policy. - Sitush (talk) 16:39, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, I read it - he's no innocent newbie. — Alan / Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 16:45, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── On a completely different and hopefully levious (is that a word? from levity?), I took a trip to Salford today to get a photo relating to James Farmer (knight). On my way back through Charlestown, I passed a shop that advertised itself as "African Butchery". Ignore the fairly obvious stereotypical Idi Amin type of "humour". It was shut, being Sunday, but the chap I was with, who once worked at Farmer's factory, claimed to have been in there once. He asked for an elephant buttie but they apologised, saying they had run out of bread ... - Sitush (talk) 23:35, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

Hehe — Alan / Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 10:09, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) re those Nair edits — it's good you posted a general sanctions notice, Sitush. I'll topic ban the user if they persist. Well, if they persist before I go on vacation tomorrow. Bishonen | talk 13:33, 7 July 2014 (UTC).

Hope you're going somewhere nice :-) — Alan / Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 14:05, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
afk, anyway. :-) Bishonen | talk 17:49, 7 July 2014 (UTC).


You have some experience of caste articles - see Wikipedia:RSN#Are_British_Raj_ethnographers_unreliable.3F. Qwyrxian is unlikely to return, which is unfortunate because their experience is even greater. - Sitush (talk) 12:28, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) Joshua Jonathan seems to be around. I've pinged him on his page. Bishonen | talk 13:34, 7 July 2014 (UTC).
  • To be honest, all I really know of the reliability of those sources is from what you, Qwyrxian and others have said - it makes a lot of sense and I'm quite sure you're right, but there's not a lot I can add myself. But maybe a comment along those lines might help. Are there any links to earlier discussions you can add? — Alan / Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 13:55, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
