Archives[edit]

All prior talk page discussion topics: Archive 1, Archive 2

→ !!! For visitors here flustered about edits:[edit]

Read below, then create a new section in the upper-right corner of this page and write all you'd like. Deleting and maintaining general control things can be important and the process is what keeps Wikipedia from collapsing in on itself within a matter of days (or hours). It's also sometimes not the most fun or glorious thing around for me to patrol and patch up. It's even less fun if something you created was changed or marked for deletion. It's entirely normal. Here are a few things to remember that can help solve the situation:

  • No decision at Wikipedia is final. There are all sorts of means and methods and things to work on in Wikipedia's dispute resolution center. That should cover about 99% of troubles if you read through it a few times. I especially encourage a look over the "See Also" section and the menu under it, as it's a large collection of detailed reasoning behind many of our most fundamental guidelines and policies.
  • My actions taken are never intended to be personal: When I'm going through vandalism patrol, civility concerns, incident discussion or other serious matters that can disrupt the encyclopedia, my aim is Justice. That comes first from the template set out by the community here (do note that, technically, we only have 1 rule however), bit also common sense and logic, evidence provided by other users, comments left by users, communications I may have had with other editors about certain situations, etc. There is never one easy answer, but that doesn't mean it's all terribly complicated.
  • If any edit I made is confusing: Please let me know. I make mistakes. Everyone does, and hey I might even do it slightly more than average. "Usually" I can catch my mistakes and will quickly rush to revert the error and write a message of apology. You may also wish to run your username through the general Wikipedia search to see if you are currently seen at any incident boards which might also explain my edits or other unexpected actions.
  • I cannot solve your situation if it will eventually require administrator assistance. Really, I wish I could help people more than I currently can, but we have guidelines for such things and I may need to suggest you take your concerns to an official discussion.
  • Communicate! You'd be shocked at what a large percentage of low-level conflict can be averted or resolved through even 1 or 2 talk page messages between users. Really, it's astonishing, in the 80%+ range I'd say. Be proactive and contact a user if you so much as sense trouble brewing and you will likely never see it go farther. Of all actions taken I've taken at time of this writing, even with some controversial issues, I've only been vandalized and absolutely ignored on having a civil discussion with two different editors. Some messages at the top of sections below might look somewhat heated, but I'm always one to accept responsibility for my mistakes and we end up with no worries.

Generic Greeting to Would-Be Message Deliverers[edit]

I will attempt to reply to any messages left at my earliest convenience. Messages about Administrator discussion or proposed article deleted generally take priority over any other work. Post about any of my actions you take exception to or are just annoyed/disgusted/frustrated with me over, as well. Really, anything. Follow our civility policies and always make an attempt to assume good faith on initial contact and things generally work out for the better. Best wishes, and I hope you enjoy your time at Wikipedia.

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

For the guideline on reviewing, see Wikipedia:Reviewing. Being granted reviewer rights doesn't change how you can edit articles even with pending changes. The general help page on pending changes can be found here, and the general policy for the trial can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. —DoRD (talk) 15:56, 6 July 2010 (UTC)

Deshashta Brahmin[edit]

You reverted my edit to the lead of Deshastha Brahmin AND the table I deleted from that article. Please take a look at the revision history and you will find the reasons for my action. Please undo the revert. Thanks. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Zuggernaut (talkcontribs) 05:07, 18 July 2010 (UTC)

I apologize for any brainlessness; a filter had marked things amiss. You are free to undo whatever errors I might have caused. If there are further concerns for whatever reason, feel free to let me know. Tstorm(talk) 05:12, 18 July 2010 (UTC)

Incident[edit]

There's a discussion over at ANI on a user. I would appreciate your input. You were one of the editors participating in the previous discussion, and I'm currently informing all the editors involved--hkr (talk) 11:20, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for the heads up. I'm a firm believer of a final WP:BEANS test as a time a problematic user can try to return some good faith, and this seems to have been a failed test this time. Tstorm(talk) 12:47, 16 January 2011 (UTC)

Possible interview about Palin/Revere edit war in June 2011[edit]

My name is Sara Marks and I am doing research for a masters thesis at Fitchburg State University. My thesis has to do with resolving conflicts on Wikipedia entries and I am focusing on what happened to the Paul Revere entry after Palin's comments last summer. I have been going through the archives and would really like to talk to you about what happened after her comments, especially your part in it. I want to get a better idea of what happened and your thoughts on the resolution process. You can get back to me on your talk page, my talk page or via email at librarygurl at gmail.com. I can also answer any questions you may have about my thesis. I look forward to hearing from you. --LibraryGurl (talk) 19:44, 25 April 2012 (UTC)
