Unblock request

User:Jllproductions, whom you rightly blocked for having a spam username (he'd tried to create an article on a company of the same name) has requested an unblock, and, after a few rounds of discussion, seems to have adequately understood (or, at least, expressed an understanding) of the problems of spamming and promised not to do it anymore. Do you have any objections to an unblock? He hasn't actually formatted a proper unblock request, but I think the intent is clear. Qwyrxian (talk) 10:41, 2 October 2013 (UTC)

User:Embassy of Iraq

Hello, you unblocked this user a month ago to allow them to change their username. They haven't done so and have continued to edit with the current, inappropriate, name (contribs). QuiteUnusual (talk) 18:45, 3 October 2013 (UTC)

Thanks

Hi Daniel

Thank you very munch for helping me.

Kind regards — Preceding unsigned comment added by DW nbatchelor (talkcontribs) 12:23, 4 October 2013 (UTC)

Re: poopy

Cool. Thanks for getting back to me. So should those sorta names be reported in general? Personally, I've only been reporting them if they make vandalesque edits (sorta like "promotional" usernames and their edits). EvergreenFir (talk) 04:55, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

Will do! Thanks again for getting back to me! EvergreenFir (talk) 20:29, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

Unblocking User:Macableton

I've unblocked this user (see your TP archive 17, thread 1.283) under the conditions that he change his username and avoid linking to his site in future, both of which he's agreed to. No action needed on your part, just letting you know.Cheers, Yunshui  07:49, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

IP at Nina Rosenwald

Just ran into an edit conflict with you there. I hadn't thought of the possibility this was more than one person. I have to laugh at the accusation I've been edit warring - that was what I was responding to when we had the edit conflict. This IP is pretty obviously and openly(changing to appears to me to be, see below) anti-Muslim. Hopefully know he/she/they has managed to get attract enough attention. It will be interesting to see if we get any SPAs as the article is semi-protected for the rest of the month. Dougweller (talk) 18:05, 9 October 2013 (UTC)

Thanks. Actually my sock possibility resulted from not having fully read the section hed that says that comment was moved from another page. In any event, I've looked it up and the IP resolves to a Verizon server in the Virginia suburbs of D.C. Wonder if it's Rosenwald herself. Daniel Case (talk) 18:10, 9 October 2013 (UTC)
The IP has posted to my talk page saying that my post above is libel and that he is "not anti-Muslim and you have no basis for making such a claim." It could be that appearances are deceiving and he is not anti-Muslim, so I will revise my statement to say that he "appears to me to be anti-Muslim." This is on the basis of his edits but I don't want to use your page to argue the case. Dougweller (talk) 15:36, 10 October 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for your help on my talk page. You need to look at [1]. Dougweller (talk) 05:14, 12 October 2013 (UTC)

Oversighter needed

Could you come and check the WP:ANI section entitled "Brahma Kumaris: Protecting individual privacy"? Someone's offered evidence that sounds to me like it's pretty damning, but the evidence was oversighted after it was offered. It might help if you could come in, check the diff in question, and then participate in the discussion. Nyttend (talk) 00:21, 10 October 2013 (UTC)

Thanks a lot for the help! Perhaps you saw that someone else (who commented just after you) offered comments based on looking at the edit before it was oversighted; however, I'd much prefer an opinion from someone who was just looking at it in addition to someone who'd seen it hours earlier, simply because of human forgetfulness.

Disambiguation link notification for October 10

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Perry Mason moment, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Rose Garden (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.

Opting in to VisualEditor

As you may know, VisualEditor ("Edit beta") is currently available on the English Wikipedia only for registered editors who choose to enable it. Since you have made 100 or more edits with VisualEditor this year, I want to make sure that you know that you can enable VisualEditor (if you haven't already done so) by going to your preferences and choosing the item, "Enable VisualEditor. It will be available in the following namespaces: $1". This will give you the option of using VisualEditor on articles and userpages when you want to, and give you the opportunity to spot changes in the interface and suggest improvements. We value your feedback, whether positive or negative, about using VisualEditor, at Wikipedia:VisualEditor/Feedback. Thank you, Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 18:29, 11 October 2013 (UTC)

I'm confused.

It is not a formal request, but I am wondering if you could take a moment and look at the comment

The user was blocked (and made the unfortunate decision to create and edit talk pages from another account, with an unsuitable user name)

You denied an official unblock request because it was non-responsive, but I am wondering if you have a moment to look at the user's recent statement at User_talk:81.240.180.58#Comment -- TRPoD aka The Red Pen of Doom 22:22, 18 October 2013 (UTC)

Citations in New York NR articles

Perhaps you've seen the latest discussion about NRIS-only stubs at WT:NRHP, which has led to the creation of pages such as User:Dudemanfellabra/NRISOnly. I'm currently going through the "Articles with only one source that is not NRIS" section, marking things that have a badly formatted NRIS citation and removing entries that are sourced to something else. Among the latter category are many of your New York articles such as United States Post Office (Granville, New York), which have "just one source" because they're written from the nominations. Of course I'm not complaining that you're using the nominations! I'm simply coming here to ask if you could go through your New York creations and add NRIS citations (or New York SHPO citations, if applicable) to the infoboxes, since the nomination form doesn't mention the property's reference number or the date when it was added to the Register. Thanks! Nyttend (talk) 13:28, 19 October 2013 (UTC)

User:Neo ^

Hi Daniel. As the blocking administrator, I'm letting you know of an unblock request for Neo ^ that has been open for three weeks pending additional input from you. If you would comment one way or the other, it would be appreciated. Ishdarian 10:40, 20 October 2013 (UTC)

Possible IP block?

Hi! In September you'd blocked the ip 107.210.111.166 for 24 hours for vandalism. The same person appears to be back it again and while I think I've cleaned up all but the latest mess they made today, would it be possible to get another block applied so at least they'll be stopped again for a bit? Thanks! Ultraviolet (talk) 19:00, 20 October 2013 (UTC)

IP address you blocked back editing again

You blocked 88.104.25.210. 8 out of the 9 edits of 88.104.29.3 have been on the same pages that the other IP address was on. [2] Same IP range. Same rude personality. Same person. They are getting around the block by using a different IP. Dream Focus 17:50, 21 October 2013 (UTC)

Request for account to be renamed

Hi Daniel. I recently listed User:BlackBab00nHamilton at the UAA noticeboard with the suggestion that the account should be renamed per WP:BLPABUSE, as the username is a racial attack against Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton. However HBC AIV helperbot7 removed the listing because the account has already been blocked. I'm assuming that if I relist the account at UAA, the bot will just remove it again, so I thought I would approach you directly, as you appear to be active at the UAA holding pen. Thanks. DH85868993 (talk) 11:07, 29 October 2013 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) Why would we rename an account that's blocked indefinitely? That's what we do with offensive usernames, we don't rename them...WP:RBI ES&L 11:18, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
WP:BLPABUSE says "Certain disruptive and offensive usernames (for example those containing contentious material about living persons, or those that are clearly abusive towards any race, religion or social groups) may be immediately blocked by administrators and renamed by bureaucrats to protect Wikipedia and the subjects involved from harm." (my bolding). DH85868993 (talk) 11:30, 29 October 2013 (UTC)

Account clarification

Hi, I recently created a new account after losing the password to my old one. EricChuang676 is the account that I will be using from now on, so please disregard EricChuang. (EricChuang676 talk) 7:00, 29 October 2013

Many thanks for your excellent edits to the Hermann Stieve article. Adding the back-stories of the Nazi victims whose deaths Stieve exploited was an excellent idea.

Question

Hello Daniel Case, I was just wondering whether, considering your recent indefinite block of Edaniels1004 (talk · contribs), the page Wikipedia:Edaniels1004 should be deleted. Thanks, Toccata quarta (talk) 07:27, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

Non-violation of Vantage Production Ltd

Hi,

I've just spotted at WP:UAA you've not blocked, for example, "Vantage Production Ltd". Surely that account is either misleading due to it not being controlled by a company, or it is controlled by a company and therefore afoul of our rules about accounts only being for one user? I can see a few cases where you've declined to block in similar circumstances, and I don't understand the logic for letting them lie when, for example, "Juiceentertainment" has just been blocked on these grounds.

A longer block

Hey Daniel, I was thinking that User: Shoka1234 deserves a longer block due to this comment, the user was blocked for personal attacks and harassment before, and frankly the user frequently violates WP:V and probably deserved a longer block then 12 hours from the beginning. Its all on your opinion though. STATic message me! 04:12, 21 November 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, I mean it is one thing to call names to another editor, but to tell two editors to "kill themselves" is a bit extreme to me, people that are going to say those type of things frankly do not belong here, in my opinion. But I will message the blocking admin. Regards, STATic message me! 04:54, 21 November 2013 (UTC)

User talk:CleanOceanProject requesting unblock

Hello Daniel. Could you take another look at the unblock rationale that this user provided and indicate what more he can do? He has already selected a non-promotional username, and his unblock seems to be saying he'll abide by our policies if unblocked. The only thing he didn't mention was notability.

UAA issue

Since I've talked with you in the past about the UAA list, I thought I'd turn to you in this case. Another admin was clearing out the UAA list and removed two (1 and 2) [potentially] offensive names because of their lack of edits. I've not seen any other admin have this policy, nor is it mentioned anywhere in the guidelines or on TW. I understand why we have this policy for promo names, but it seems unreasonable to patently disregard offensive usernames because of their lack of edits. Indeed, I've seen many usernames be hard blocked for offensiveness without any edits. As I've explained to the admin, my issue is not with the ruling of offensiveness, it's the removal of the names due to lack of edits (instead of a UAA|no and it being left on the board for others to see and possible discuss). I just request that a second opinion on this issue. Thank you for your time. EvergreenFir (talk) 22:50, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

Avoidance of a block

An IP editor that you blocked today is avoiding his block and being disruptive on Talk:Kleargear. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 19:02, 28 November 2013 (UTC)


Persistent Alvin and the Chipmunks vandal again

Daniel, please could you investigate this disruptive user who persistently puts unsourced / unhelpful material about "Alvin and the Chipmunks" into articles about songs. You previously issued a block against the user, but whenever the anonymous IP user is blocked, he or she just comes back again under a different IP address.

Over a sustained long period of time, the amount of disruption that he or she has caused to articles is huge.


97.86.5.61 (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · edit filter log · WHOIS · RDNS · RBLs · http · block user · block log)


Then evaded block by coming back as:


198.246.7.69 (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · edit filter log · WHOIS · RDNS · RBLs · http · block user · block log)


Has come back recently as:


68.186.161.55 (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · edit filter log · WHOIS · RDNS · RBLs · http · block user · block log)


If I report him or her to "Administrator intervention against vandalism", I may possibly be told by Admin that not enough warnings have been issued against the latest IP address 68.186.161.55. But the problem is that he or she continually does this under different IP addresses and evades blocks in this way.

The IP user's persistent disruptive edits in my view now merit a long-range IP block. Otherwise this will carry on indefinitely and continue to damage the Wikipedia community. Kind Tennis Fan (talk) 20:54, 28 November 2013 (UTC)


Daniel,

Thank you for your reply. I have now reported this issue to Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents. Kind Tennis Fan (talk) 21:50, 28 November 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for Thanks

Daniel, thanks for reaching out re: the revenge porn article and for creating/adding the Wiktionary entry! I was only able to dedicate the time and resources to working on the article because I pitched it as a Directed Research project to my law school.

December 2013 Spuyten Duyvil derailment

Hi, Daniel. I'm just wondering how a section about how to get around the accident is germane to the article. Doesn't WP:NOTTRAVEL still apply? Epicgenius (talk) 16:53, 3 December 2013 (UTC)

I don't think that information comes directly under WP:NOTTRAVEL, at least not based on the examples given there (putting in the MTA's phone number or URL and telling people to call for information would be closer to what I think that's intended to exclude). In any invent I didn't phrase it as a direct how-to for that reason, as well.

But I think that how the two railroads—including the one whose train did not derail—responded to the accident in terms of guaranteeing service to their riders is useful information, for comparison purposes if nothing else should something similar happen in the future. We did, after all, find Sandy's effect on the city's transportation network notable enough to have a section on (and that's sort of how that section of the derailment article should read once this is all safely in the past). Daniel Case (talk) 22:55, 3 December 2013 (UTC)

Although it may not come under WP:NOTTRAVEL, saying "The next day, the first regular business day back from the Thanksgiving holiday, it restored limited service as far south as Yonkers, three stations north of where the derailment occurred. From there riders were advised to take a shuttle bus to the Van Cortlandt Park—242nd Street subway station, the northern terminus of the 1 service into Manhattan and Penn Station, where they could take the 42nd Street Shuttle to Grand Central, the usual southern terminus of the Hudson Line," is basically answering the question "How do you get from Yonkers to Penn Station on the day after the crash?"

These can be interpreted by some as travel directions for the commute on Monday, and they were not under WP:NOTTRAVEL because you added that text today. By contrast, Sandy's effects on transport were just that—effects on transport. So, your text was not exactly travel directions; however, they sounded like they were. Epicgenius (talk) 23:59, 3 December 2013 (UTC)

You got it. If I had written that as more of an explicit how-to, as something like "travelers can take a shuttle bus from Yonkers to ...", then it would fall afoul of NOTTRAVEL. A description of a process can sometimes be read as instructive (See French press#Preparation, for instance—you could derive instructions for how to make coffee that way just from that section. And then you could literally see the accompanying video of me making coffee that way, in case the text wasn't enough. Daniel Case (talk) 06:38, 4 December 2013 (UTC)
Okay, got it. Epicgenius (talk) 13:21, 4 December 2013 (UTC)

User DVdm has reverted at least 20 of my 60 or more edits without cause. He has done it twice now despite a normal warning from me, from my talk page, user Speling12345. Each of his 20 or so edits is listed under 'm' for minor. A special counter at DVdm's talk page brags about being vandalized 83 times, so perhaps user DVdm is a consistent problem case on Wikipedia.

User:DipanjanMADPLAYHOUSE

Hello Daniel, I reported this username few days back and you did comment that it "maybe" an exceptional case of "Mark at Alcoy". This report hung on there for like two or three days and it was removed with an edit summary "No immediate admin action needed".I expected Admin action there though. I am well aware of WP:ISU and I place WP:UCS over any other guidelines. Is Mark allowed to add spam links about Alcoy, just because his username has "Mark" in it?Had his username been "Alcoy Inc", he would have been blocked immediately. DO we expect helpful contribution from Mark? or Dipanjan in this case?? I don't think so... This username is here just for promotion regardless of their prefix or suffix. Using common sense is also an "accepted guideline" at Wikipedia. Sooner or later this guy will come again and will add spam links to the article, he has been doing so and we can't block him cuz he falls under "Mark at Alcoy" exception. I am contacting you cuz I believe this case was taken very lightly, no consensus was reached and report was removed. Regards and Happy New Year :) Hitro talk 20:30, 31 December 2013 (UTC)

There's no way this needs a fundamental rewrite to be made encyclopaedic. It needs a little bit of a copyedit, to be sure, but it falls well short of any reasonable G11. You should undelete it, so it can be cleaned up, properly referenced, etc. (And adding good references in this case is surprisingly easy). WilyD 14:45, 17 January 2014 (UTC)

Notability was not well established in the article, but a couple seconds on Google puts any concerns to rest. It really is a multinational company with a quarter billion euros a year in sales [3], so it's not surprising. One could debate the semantics of what's an assertion of significance, but it's quite straightforward to fix it up to clearly meet WP:N. WilyD 15:00, 17 January 2014 (UTC)

::So is this the way CSD works? A company creates its own article in clear COI. The article is clearly A11 & G11 but because another editor makes a vague claim of notability the CSD is removed and the article is essentially left in its original state as written by the company but with a few tags added which no one will likely address. So the COI author successfully places their advertised company on WP. Leaky Caldron 15:23, 17 January 2014 (UTC)

Open space disambiguation

No problem. When I was doing those, I was thinking that for many, there were several 'correct' choices. So I did not see any harm in choosing one. Vegaswikian (talk) 23:57, 26 January 2014 (UTC)

The problem is that when you are doing a dab, you are looking at the contents of the dab page. So adding a picture in an article does not help in that case. If I'm not able to find something that I think could be right, I'll mark it as needing disambiguation. However that cleanup list is backlogged to June 2011 now that October 2008 (yep I have the right year) was just completed. I guess my comment about where help would work is on the dab page. Something to make the dab page pop other links. In thinking about what you have said, I wonder if public space is the most common of these and should be listed at the top.

Admiral Clarey Bridge

I see that you write a lot about bridges and historic sites. I'm not the best writer and I was looking for some help with putting a good bridge article together. There is lots of information available and I've also made contact with one of the Engineers on the original project who is also a Wikipedian. Would you be interested in helping me with this project?--v/r - TP 19:46, 8 February 2014 (UTC)

Hey, are you available to help me with this or should I look elsewhere?--v/r - TP 02:48, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

I'm a little speechless. :) I find it amusing that they just realized that they are blocked. Anyway. I guess I don't really object at this point. But on the other hand, I think they should have a short leash at first. Though it's interesting. I'm not sure that they would be blocked today for what they did in 2005.

User SylviaPekararnold

Hi Daniel. I debated about taking this to WP:UAA but elected to talk to you directly instead. The user SylviaPekararnold is a new account editing Phi Gamma Nu, a fraternity founded by an identically-named Sylvia Pekar Arnold... in 1924. I searched for an obituary but couldn't find anything definitive. I suppose it's possible that she's still alive, and is a spry centenarian editing under her WP:REALNAME, but those are slim odds. Is this strong enough (circumstantial) evidence of WP:IMPERSONATE? --Drm310 (talk) 03:00, 12 February 2014 (UTC)

Revisiting the edits of a hopping IP

Hi Daniel Case, I'm dropping you a line re: this report [4], and have also sought assistance at AIV, as well as having begun a thread at Drmies' talk page. Last year you blocked one of this user's IPs for a few months; they've returned for, essentially, more of the same. At this point I'm not sure whether to request page protection for the lot of articles again, or keep playing whack-a-mole with these accounts. Your thoughts welcome.

Featured lists

Have you ever considered working on a featured list related to the Supreme Court? List of United States Supreme Court cases by the Burger Court and similar articles, assuming they are comprehensive, would essentially just need a decent lede to meet the criteria (maybe the date the decision was passed and decision ratio, but that's personal style more than anything). Mt. Healthy is good work, and (here comes the ulterior motive) the main page could use more Law. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 08:03, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

Your block of User:CHouse1889

While this user name certainly referred to the organization, and the account was editing that organization's article, the name doesn't seem to me to clearly violate WP:USERNAME, more of a borderline case.

Jllproductions

Hello Daniel. You may recall that Jllproductions (talk · contribs) was blocked under our user name policy. In October you unblocked the account so the operator could request a user name change. However, it appears the user name was never changed, and they are continuing to edit article space with the Jllproductions account. As you were the unblocking admin perhaps you could take action on this…? —Psychonaut (talk) 12:26, 23 February 2014 (UTC)

Pitkin County

The most basic issue is that the massive pile of citations actually runs the risk of taking the documentation away from the official standards. Barring errors such as typos, data in NRIS are the standards, and any conflicts between the old listing pages are the results of documentation updates/status changes/etc. by the NPS. This is the whole reason that we have the citation at the top of the table (citation #4 as of the diff in question), since it's the source for everything in the column. Everything in these tables is supposed to be derived from NRIS, except for things presented with citations to other sources: names (which don't use en-dashes, by the way), listing dates, verbal locations, coordinates, and cities are all solely dependent on NRIS and mustn't be changed unless we find an error or unless we provide alternate documentation, e.g. some other source gives the location of a site that's restricted by NPS.

A repeat vandal

Hi Daniel – you blocked 78.32.196.49 for 48 hours yesterday. It's a repeat vandal with an identifiable editing pattern, mostly using dynamic BT addresses, which he will come back to if the block is short (see 86.157.182.246 for instance). He's been around since at least last October and I've been issuing month-long blocks when I catch him on BT to avoid this behaviour (e.g. 86.147.44.132) – I think the same should be done for this Entanet address (possibly longer as it may well be a fixed IP). Happy to extend the block myself, but wanted to notify you first as a matter of courtesy.  —SMALLJIM  14:16, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

RE: Wiki Project Fashion - Karl Templer

Hi Daniel

I wanted to contact you about creating a page for british-born stylist and creative director of Interview magazine Karl Templer. I have been trying to create a page for him for a few weeks now but I keep running into technical difficulties.

I have cited the book Stylist: Interpreters of Fashion by Sarah Mower and Style.com as sources along with a feature in the New York Times.

Please follow the link to my sandbox: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Freemans_land/sandbox

User:Virgin EMI

Hi, I notice the block message at User talk:Virgin EMI you added. Am I correct that they are still free to edit talk pages (article and user talk). They had indicated an interest in donating at least one more free image. Also, I had said (thinking it's true) that they are allowed to comment on the talk page of an article (namely Kiesza), but couldn't dictate content. I would like to know there's a manner by which they can communicate. While article subjects should never edit their own article, they're often the only or best source of images. --Rob (talk) 02:59, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

Category sockpuppet

Block of User:Beastra

(Note: I'd drafted this before I'd seen Daniel's note above that he will be away for a week. I'm posting it anyway in case he has a chance to see it, or so that he'll see it when he comes back, or perhaps someone else will comment.)

On skimming the requests-for-unblock category I came across the request by Beastra. You blocked this account for "spamming" back in September. I've checked the contributions (there are no deleted contributions) and as far as I can see on-wiki, the "spamming" consisted of one edit. In that edit, the user added a link to the BLP of a notable but lesser-known writer, linking to an interview of that writer contained in the editor's personal blog.

Unless I have missed something, I am not sure that this edit is fairly categorized as "spam." We obviously don't want editors whose purpose on-wiki is to add or spam links to their own sites, but the linked blog post was an interview with the BLP subject herself. The link was a useful contribution to the article especially given that all of the other sources were several years old. I am not certain that adding this single link to the article constituted a policy violation. While it might have been better practice to propose the link on the talkpage, this is a lesser-trafficked article and there can be no assurance that such a suggestion would have received a timely response.

More importantly, the single "spam" edit was the user's very first edit. There was no reason to assume that she was familiar with our policies concerning spamming or COI editing. After Xlinkbot reverted the link (presumably because of "Wordpress" in the URL) and advised the editor of the relevant policy and guideline pages, she did not add the link again or do anything else inappropriate. (In fact, she didn't make any other edits at all.) I appreciate that you are active in protecting the project from nuisances and threats such as spammers, but based on this very limited history I would not have blocked.

In any event, the user has now posted an unblock request and, in response to Jpgordon's initial unblock denial, has confirmed that she will not add further cites to her personal blog. Thus, I hope you don't object to her being unblocked now. Thanks and regards, Newyorkbrad (talk) 20:31, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi there, it appears the above IP address you blocked for Edit Warring made no edits after being warned. Usually, that results in waiting for another edit before they're blocked.

Regarding Sherri Rasmussen

  1. I don't agree with the first change, but if MOS says it I don't care enough to go to war with it. ;)
  2. Your second change, I understand. I figured that was why it was the way it was in the first place, but I went with my gut and "fixed" it. From here, the article is out of my hands, and there wasn't much to even do with it in the first place. All I tried to do was spruce it up a bit and possibly help give assurance that it might be ready for GA at the least by this point, but others more knowledgeable are more than welcome to improve on it if I couldn't. LazyBastardGuy 01:46, 14 April 2014 (UTC)
By the way, do you think I went a bit overboard with my request to fix anything whose meaning I might have accidentally changed by trying to make something coherent out of it? Could my copyedit have been more in depth as BabbaQ apparently claims it could have? I feel insulted by being accused of making an incomplete effort here, but I can't fix what isn't broken and the rest of the article looked good to me. I only made mention of this because this was a fairly recent event (and as you imply it is still ongoing, what with Lazarus' appeal) and I would not want to accidentally skew the article in any way.

Adding items to NRHP list

Hi, I was just doing some work on NRHP lists and notice sometimes you add new listings to them. Specifically I noticed your edit to Orange County, New York, a while back. Looking through your contributions, it seems the most recently you've done any work with NRHP lists is March, so I assume you still occasionally do that. The reason for this comment is to alert you to a script that exists to make renumbering jobs such as the one in your diff above automated. If you install the script User:Dudemanfellabra/ReorderNRHPlist.js into your JavaScript, it will add a button at the top of any NRHP list to click to renumber it. You can add a new item with any |pos= parameter you want or even leave it blank, then save the page, click the button, and the script does the renumbering for you. Feel free to ignore this message, but I know it's saved me a lot of time. Just wanted to point it out for future reference!--Dudemanfellabra (talk) 16:32, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

Revert question

Hi Daniel, I previously asked a question about 1RR on abortion related pages that I'm still not clear on. The question involves conduct policy, after the initial revert, with respect to further general editing on that same page. For example, If I revert the contribution of an editor, and then that revert is later reverted by another editor, and then I don’t touch it again, I leave that editor’s contribution exactly as is, but within that same 24 hour period, I edit content from another uninvolved editor, is that a violation of the 1RR? I’d like to be clear on this policy so I don’t accidently violate it. BoboMeowCat (talk) 15:47, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

Block causes for TheLittleDuke remedied?

Since TheLittleDuke (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · edit filter log · block user · block log) got blocked, he has been engaging with people pretty civilly on his talk page. He has retracted the legal threats (on-Wiki retraction, deleted of tweets from Twitter) and is willing to accept mentoring.

Do you think an unblock is in order, either with the current restrictions or additional restrictions? I had thought for a topic ban from mentioning himself or his company in article space might be in order, but I think mentoring might be the better path forward to constructive editing. —C.Fred (talk) 02:26, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

UAA - Ibsiadkgneoeb

Hi Daniel. Sorry, but I feel obliged to disagree strongly with you on this one - the fact that the (clearly intentional) insult had gone undetected for almost a year doesn't in any way excuse it. A username that is a direct insult towards a specific editor is simply not permissable, and given that this user began their editing career by reverting Bidgee and consequently engaged in slow but persistent wiki-hounding makes a coincidental spelling anomaly ridiculous. Normally I wouldn't block an account when another administrator had already deemed the name acceptable, but in this instance, I really don't think it can be allowed to stand. I've therefore blocked the account. Best wishes, Yunshui  13:37, 9 June 2014 (UTC)

@EvergreenFir: Hmm. A number of admins have alt accounts without admin privileges (see User:Delldot on a public computer) for when they don't feel they can edit securely. Even though you're not an admin, though, I think you might have justification for tech reasons. But I'd ask somewhere else just to be on the safe side, and of course disclose this up front on the user page. Daniel Case (talk) 00:05, 17 June 2014 (UTC)

Hi Daniel Case, I just noticed thanks to this edit that Whatsupyoufools had been reported to UAA and you commented on the report, stating that the name wasn't actionable. I thought I should tell you that I have blocked the account, but it was for vandalism and not the username; I hadn't seen the report or your note until the bot removed them. Best.

Thank you. It is sort of a special case because the Cluebot report can be considered a false positive, in that it wasn't vandalism in the usual sense, but disruptive editing to push an unsourced POV.

User:Shitty Watercolour

You blocked Shitty Watercolour (talk · contribs) last year for having "shitty" in his username. User:Shitty Watercolour is the subject of the article Shitty Watercolour, which I created through AfC. After the article was accepted, I had asked him to create an account in order to upload some of his paintings to the Commons, so that I could add them to the article about him. Can he be unblocked without changing his username? Shitty Watercolour is his pseudonym, by which he is widely known - even the numerous sources in the article refer to him by that name.

Also pinging Bwilkins, who declined his unblock request, and also said that the Shitty Watercolour article didn't yet exist at that time - that can't be true because the article existed in articlespace before Shitty Watercolour created his account.

Hammond House/Wiknyc

Hi again Daniel,

I was glad to meet you last weekend at the Wiknyc. I recalled reading about the Hammond House, but I couldn't seem to recall what I did read. Looking back on it, I'm now rather interested, because you wrote that it was in Eastview, a once-hamlet that I wrote the article for, largely because I didn't exactly know what Eastview was before I started researching it. Most people just know of the area as "Eastview" and don't know anything about what it really was. Anyway, I wanted to mention that the Hammond House article is conflicting in its location; it seems to indicate that it's in Eastview as well as in nearby Hawthorne (it's mentioned on the Hawthorne article as well). I would consider moving the article to Hammond House (Eastview, New York) for accuracy; it appears to be much closer to where Eastview was/is. Also, I should ask - the house is less than ten minutes' drive from my own; would you like me to take more exterior photos? This season's probably better for it too. As well, would you perhaps mind helping with my Briarcliff article and/or its FA review?

Many thanks,

Serial IP-hopping genre warrior back from block

See this ANI for the background info. Current IP is 90.196.3.222. I've also reported them at AIV, but apparently, no one has seen the report yet. I noticed you were online, and they're at high-speed repeating the edits that got them blocked last time around. Any chance you can block them? AddWittyNameHere (talk) 18:10, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

In the mean time, I have also discovered an SPI related to them (here (SPI going back to 2011, mentions of the issue being at least a year older than that). For link between the two, see block-log of User:90.195.176.24) and believe that beyond just contacting their ISP, it's high-time for a formal community ban so that their edits can at least be rolled back on sight. Unfortunately, while highly recognizable for people who have dealt with them or read back on them (I fall into the latter category, or rather, remembered them from the ANI report last week), their edits are just that hair-breadth short of blatant enough that I feel uncomfortable doing so without a formal ban. As such, I intend to file a proposal for a community ban on the AN and am currently writing it. AddWittyNameHere (talk) 18:33, 15 July 2014 (UTC)
It has been done before in the case of the German reference desk troll (LTA-report here). Might have been other cases, as well, but that's the one I know of from top of my head.
In any case, a ban is not on the account or IP used, but rather on the individual behind them. I see no reason why this would be different for an IP-only editor, even an IP-editor using dozens of IPs. The behaviour certainly is obvious enough that they're rather recognizable--more so than a fair few other community-banned individuals, I dare say, so the risk of collateral damage doesn't seem to be any higher than with the average banned individual with an attached username.AddWittyNameHere (talk) 18:56, 15 July 2014 (UTC)
Found another case of an IP-editor being community banned ([https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia:Administrators%27_noticeboard/Incidents&oldid=512015253 here), looking to see if there are more cases. Might help to point it out in the proposal itself, to prevent discussion on whether or not IPs can be community banned. Beyond that, my request is pretty much written. It helps that there is a fair bit of documentation on this one from the SPI and the ANI listing.AddWittyNameHere (talk) 19:07, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

Bot reports at AIV

Hi Daniel, I've noticed you from time to time decline AIV reports from Mr.Z-bot. This report I believe is not about the content changed, but rather the edit summary, see Special:AbuseFilter/523. Apparently the edit summary is linked to spambots. I have no idea what the intent is here, especially when the edits, just as you say, seem perfectly innocent. I also don't know why it's labeled as "page creation spammer". Perhaps Materialscientist can shed some light on this?

Frankly, I'm not sure about many of these filters... the logic is handled at User:Mr.Z-bot/filters.js, so clearly someone believes immediate administrative action is needed or else they wouldn't have been added to the list. From the looks of it, the list is seldom changed, and perhaps not well monitored. I thought maybe we could make note of questionable reports, and bring it to the attention of the filter's author if we believe it is a false positive.

Any insight is appreciated. Thanks — MusikAnimal talk 01:17, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

User:67.83.61.170

Daniel, you blocked this user about 36 hours ago for persistent editing to introduce contractions into articles to the point (after repeated warnings) that your summary indicated it was to the point of vandalism ("ongoing and sneaky" was how you put it).

The IP's first edit after the block, a few hours ago, was solely to insert contractions into an article. It has been reverted, but this behavior will clearly continue; perhaps a longer period of withheld editing privileges will get this person's attention. Thanks for anything you can do.

my name change

Hi - you'd asked me on my talk page whether my name was actually Phil Kessel (and sort of intimated i was 'dodging' a question about my identity). So you know, I wasn't dodging anything...I (1) had misunderstood the wiki policy re using a pubic figure's name; and (2) hadn't realized anyone seriously thought i was phil kessel (either the hockey player or otherwise). In hindsight, obviously it was really stupid to sign up under that name - but i had no bad intent. Someone came and explained on my page i was going against the wiki policy and should change my name - which I've done (it wasn't my intention to cause problems). but you'd mentioned something about my account being blocked and i wanted to make sure i wasn't doing anything to make that happen. I'm sorry about this - I didn't mean to cause trouble for anyone. GLG GLG (talk) 04:22, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

SPI vs AIV

Hi DC, I respectfully disagree with this sort of response to AIV requests because it needlessly adds more steps to the anti-vandal process, which is already tedious. Though I understand your point, I disagree with the rationale; the sock operator *is* an obvious vandal with a history of pernicious edits, including elaborate hoax creation and repeated submission of plagiarized content. I could just as easily argue for and achieve a "Duck" block at SPI as I could at AIV, only it would take several days to get any action because SPI is backlogged. In this time, the sock would continue his disruptive nonsense. Anyhow, not trying to browbeat ya or be disrespectful, because you've certainly helped me out quickly many a time and I'm grateful for that, only asking for you to wax reminiscent about the hoops we non-admins sometimes have to jump through to get the job done. In the interim, I've filed the SPI report. Thank you, sir! Cyphoidbomb (talk) 16:33, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

User talk:AAMAExecDirector

In marginal cases like that of User talk:AAMAExecDirector could you not discuss the name problem with the editor before blocking and adding that template. They had made three edits, #1, #2 and #3 all of which improved the article and were not in the least bit promotional. The third one was made after I had asked them this question. I knew that username was a bit of a problem but they were doing good work. I've encouraged them to create a new name and I hope they will. Cheers.

"Marginal"? By what standards is it "marginal"? the panda ₯’ 14:47, 29 July 2014 (UTC)
@DangerousPanda:, as per Wikipedia:Username policy#Promotional names and Wikipedia:Username policy#Talk to the user. The first link says "Usernames that unambiguously represent the name of a company, group, institution or product" which in this case the name is of an official of the museum rather than the museums name. It also goes on to say "A user who both adopts a promotional username and also engages in inappropriately promotional behaviors in articles about the company, group, or product, can be blocked." but they weren't making promotional edits. In the second link the entire sentence is relevant. As the user was not exhibiting "inappropriately promotional behaviors" it would have been better to discuss before blocking. CBWeather, Talk, Seal meat for supper? 15:35, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

Curious about blocked user name

Hello — Recently I reverted some vandalism from this user. A while later, you blocked that user for vandalism and for having an inappropriate user name. I hope you'll pardon my ignorance, but may I ask why that user name was thought to be improper? Since it doesn't seem to attack or threaten anyone, or impersonate another individual, or suggest use by a company or group, all I could guess was that it's an offensive local idiom. Google is usually good at revealing the latest slang — there is always some teenage Web user, somewhere, eager to etch their latest language inventions in stone by adding it to an online list — but Google turned up nothing more relevant than this. My apologies if this puts you in an awkward or embarrassing position, but could I buy a clue as to the (approximate) nature of the offense? Given that Wikipedia is a global discussion among multiple cultures, I'd rather know if there are new terms best not used in polite conversation. Thanks!

UAA Holding Pen question

Had a questions about the Holding Pen, as the subject line indicates and figured you'd be the best person to ask (you're one of the, if not the, most active admins at UAA, after all): the Holding Pen guidelines indicates "please remove any users that are blocked, renamed, or have done nothing for over seven days" (emphasis mine), yet this does not seem to happen all that frequently. I'd happily help in cleaning out those cases (most of them of the 'wait until user edits' kind, where well over a week later, the user still hasn't), but I'd first like to make sure if 1. the guideline is still correct on this and 2. if there are any issues with a non-administrator removing them.

Yup, that was roughly what I figured.

User JHUbal27

I see you have just issued a 72-hour block to JHUbal27 for disruptive editing. Maybe it's pointless now, but the same editor "attempted" to post this vulgar message . I say "attempted" because it was a pretty bad machine translation basically titled "Suck my d*ck" which goes on to make various racist comments about Japanese people. This was done in response to my undoing some questionable edits he made to the page Frankie Grande. My guess is that he looked through my userboxes, saw that I speak Japanese, and felt posting in "Japanese" would be more hurtful as well as less likely to be seen as personal attack. On the surface, this kind of thing is laughable: a complete fail. At a deeper level, however, it is really kind of disturbing, especially since this editor is apparently only a high school student. They actually had to go through multiple steps—look through my userboxes, think of something nasty to say, find an online translator to translate it—before posting their "message" on my talk page. Not sure if this would or even should have any bearing on the duration of this block; It is apparent, however, that a previous block seems to have had no effect upon their behavior. It also is apparent that they no longer have any qualms about esclalating things to the next level. I apologize if it is inappropriate for me to post this stuff here.

A Barnstar For You

For Open-crotch pants‎. Each addition you make to that article is more astonishing that the last. I was gobsmacked by the pig-dog-"Quick! To the hospital!" bit. Horrifying!!!! You are amazing! Anna Frodesiak (talk) 01:30, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

Oh, and you just have to DYK this one! Anna Frodesiak (talk) 01:31, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

LingQ page

Hi Daniel: Thank you for monitoring the Squidoo page—I am seeking your assistance today, as a result of your action with that page. A notability template has existed on the LingQ page since May of this year, but the page has been a contentious issue for longer than that, as you will see from the Talk page. As of August 18, 2014, the page contains very little content and appears to be serving the function of a free advertisement. Is there anything we can do about it? Regards,--Soulparadox (talk) 06:04, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

Removing block history from Talk page

Is it ok for this user to remove this history from their talk page? -- Ssilvers (talk) 00:28, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) Yes, it is OK to remove the block notice after the block has expired; the real block history is here, anyway. A user is also free to remove warnings from his own talk page at any time. Radiopathy •talk• 01:59, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

Saw Mill River

I was able to get permission from a person on flickr to get an image of Woodlands lake. That means we do not need to go to the lake to get a picture of it ourselves. The image is in the article on the Saw Mill River and can be found here on Commons: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Woodlands_Lake,_New_York.jpg PointsofNoReturn (talk) 17:56, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

181.13x genre warrior from Colombia

I see you've blocked a handful (at least) of the 181.136 and related IPs from Colombia because of genre-warring at music articles. Can you tell me if there is a long-term abuse case describing this guy? Compare to Wikipedia:Long-term abuse/Date-changing vandal from Santiago. If there is no case, perhaps we can write one up. Binksternet (talk) 04:30, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Well, it looks like a greatly overstated the case! Actually, you blocked this one recently:

Here are other ones I can find from the last few months:

Synthwave.94, Radiopathy and Starcheerspeaksnewslostwars have done a good deal of reverting this guy, as have some other editors. Binksternet (talk) 02:21, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

66.56.222.155

Daniel, you blocked this user on August 23 for repeating vandalism coming off an initial block. The IP returned to editing today, and the first edit is the same sort of replacement of credits that was done on previous edits. I'd imagine a longer block is in order to prevent further vandalism. Many thanks. BlueMoonset (talk) 16:10, 30 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for taking care of it. BlueMoonset (talk) 21:08, 30 August 2014 (UTC)

NCAA Season 88

I just came across a group of editors (only one really) all with user pages similar to NCAA Season 88. Eventually I found Category:Wikipedia sockpuppets of Ustesians. I'm just blocking and deleting their pages. CBWeather, Talk, Seal meat for supper? 15:41, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Saw Mill River may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "[]"s and 1 "{}"s likely mistaking one for another. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:
  • by the end of the 19th century. A local poet complained that the once-clear river had become "[a} snake-like yellow scrawl of scum" by that time. In the 1920s the [[U.S. Army Corps of Engineers]]
  • trailway and river all turn southwest, where they intersect the [[New York State Thruway]]) ([[Interstate 87]]) at an oblique angle. For the next mile the Thruway remains close to the river,
