edit-warring[edit]

As a long-term editor you should know far better than to start edit-warring, as you have at 1989 Newcastle earthquake. You should know to follow WP:BRD and discuss on the article's talk page. You shouldn't simply revert to your preferred version if another editor objects to your edits. It's up to you to establish consensus for the change and, while discussion is in progress the status quo reigns. Given how clear, and widely accepted the Bold-revert-discuss cycle is, it's rather hypocritical of you to leave edit summaries like this, telling others not to do exactly what you're doing yourself. --AussieLegend () 14:28, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

Using an uninviting user-generated map when a USGS version is available is a poor decision. Tango/two. Dawnseeker2000 15:46, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

P.S. (for AussieLegend or anyoone else driving by)

Well, like I said, I was in a hurry because I was off to work. I didn't want to leave without saying something and one way to do that was to use the edit summary. I really didn't want to get into a discussion on the talk page, because there would be some never-ending take it out/leave it in back and forth battle, and I'm just not good at that. What I am good at is improving earthquake articles, and I found a rather glaring flaw in the homebrew isoseismal map in the 1989 Newcastle earthquake article. I did wind up posting to the talk page (more than 24 hours later) with a statement on why the image is not good for WP or the article, and with the same message about not wanting to go back and forth about it. I don't have the energy to do that. Next time, just save the previous page instead of using the revert button (which can come off as being rude) especially on an established editor. Thank you (no reply necessary) Dawnseeker2000 00:53, 7 August 2014 (UTC)

P.S.S (for anyone interested in mischief on WP)

Well, I just noticed something odd about our little back and forth deal on 1989 Newcastle earthquake the other day. Was ready to dust myself off and resume my other activities here, but had a look at the edit history on that article and noticed an editor that reverted my last edit there. It looks to be a WP:SPA that was created during our little edit war (a few minutes prior to their one and only edit). I doubt we'll see any more of Editor35714 (talk · contribs). Sure doesn't smell good. Dawnseeker2000 01:15, 7 August 2014 (UTC)

Earthquake Prediction[edit]

Dawnseeker2000, I saw your Talk comment at Earthquake Prediction (EP) and, in response, I had a look at some of the earthquake articles you've been editing. I haven't looked at all of them, but those that I've seen are very nice -- for example, the Armenian Earthquake article. As you probably know, the EP article needs attention, or at least several editors (including me) believe that it needs attention. At the same time, there is also some substantial resistance from other corner to making pretty much any change of the EP article. I'm somewhat new to Wikipedia, and so I'm learning to navigate some of these issues of collaboration and disagreement. Of course, I understand that it is the content (and style) that counts, not the expertise of the editors contributing the content (and style). So, on that basis, seeing the earthquake articles on which you've been working, I wonder if you might consider devoting some energy to the EP article. Let me just say that the subject is controversial, which makes it interesting for an Wikieditor, and it is important, which makes it interesting for a Wikieditor. What do you think? Sincerely, DoctorTerrella (talk) 13:11, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

1975 Haicheng earthquake[edit]

The 1975 Haicheng earthquake figures prominently in earthquake prediction. While I understand that you might not want to weigh in on Earthquake Prediction page, your attention to the 1975 Haicheng earthquake would be appreciated. What do you think? Thanks, DoctorTerrella (talk) 13:37, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

IPCC[edit]

Hi, thx for your help. I have split the paragraph in two, as I believe Grundmanns research with Max Planck is a great achievement and the comparision of the IPCC activities with the Ozone layer problem of general interest . Serten (talk) 18:12, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

Earthquake properties on Wikidata[edit]

Have you thought of submitting a proposal on Wikidata to capture some of the basic properties of earthquakes? A couple of good places to get the discussion started are: wikidata:Wikidata:WikiProject_Geology and wikidata:Wikidata:Property_proposal/Natural_science#Geology. I've never gone through the process of proposing new properties so I'd have to learn this by myself. --DarTar (talk) 02:38, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

Hey, thanks for creating the new template for earthquakes in the United States.[edit]

I like the idea, and I noticed you were adding it to several articles. It's a good idea in my opinion. Thanks. Dustin (talk) 20:18, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

What's strange is that I hadn't noticed that we were lacking the template for events in the United States until just this weekend. Thanks, Dawnseeker2000

Tsunami[edit]

I saw you started a sort of cleanup, and fully agree with the need for that. I however have restored the one and only book so far and put together the human triggered tsunamis resepctively speculations about these. I hope thats OK and in line with your intention. Cheers Serten (talk) 03:02, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

Yes, thanks for consolidating the bomb stuff. I hadn't seen that. I posted on the talk page also, and like I said there, I removed the book entry again. I just think that's out of reach for most readers, and I really don't think the authors will want their complete papers available on Google Books for free. Also, I don't think the bulk of our readers are looking for that kind of material. Thanks for checking in, Dawnseeker2000 03:05, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
Youre welcome. I would prefer people looked up the social science issues more and less the tekkie ghibberish, so I am sort of contradicting you in a single aspect. That said, go ahead with the good work, Novit enim Dominus qui sunt eius ;) Serten (talk) 03:21, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

Right, so we have the external links that will be available for everyone, and the further reading items that will be available to the small number of readers that have access to a library that would host that kind of material. All good, thanks. Dawnseeker2000 03:52, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

Maybe its a privilege to live in southern Germany. I would have no problem to get the books within one hours driving - even biking :) Serten (talk) 10:05, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

Replacement[edit]

I usually try to notify users when I either upload over their files (enhancements and whatnot) or create a new version, and I meant to bring up that I replaced your file with an SVG: File:1989 Newcastle earthquake ShakeMap.svg. Dustin (talk) 16:34, 12 October 2014 (UTC)

Also, since you seem to be a significant earthquake editor, I thought I would say, I am capable of converting some ShakeMaps to SVGs, so I'd like to know what you think. There is only about one other actual earthquake editor I know of to be active apart from you though, which is why I am just bringing this up here. Dustin (talk) 16:39, 12 October 2014 (UTC)

Yes, good change. Thanks for that, and I think it's fine to do more of the same. Dawnseeker2000 16:50, 12 October 2014 (UTC)

Regarding 173.196.129.100[edit]

Thanks for reporting this IP address in Wikipedia:Administrator intervention against vandalism. I was trying to dig into this IP's hostname in Robtex at https://www.robtex.com/, and found out that this IP was blacklisted in the Composite Blocking List blacklist. I then looked in there and found that it was infected with Conficker. I reasoned that since this machine was turned into a Conficker zombie computer, it could also be a patsy for other malware including possibly being hacked to being a zombie proxy. I have placed a check request at Wikipedia:WikiProject on open proxies so that it can be confirmed. If it is confirmed, I believe that it will then be escalated to being blocked an all Wikimedia sites. Jesse Viviano (talk) 17:40, 5 November 2014 (UTC)

I was just getting to work and pulled out my phone for a quick watchlist check, and that's the only reason I stumbled across this. Thanks for the update and for your help on this, Dawnseeker2000 18:28, 5 November 2014 (UTC)

Mount Pinatubo crater lake depth[edit]

Good day. I would like to know why the change about the depth of mt. Pinatubo crater lake has been reverted? The average depth of 100 meters can be verified by both scientific sources and offical sources (capas, tarlac and botolan, zambales). Thank you. Volcanolover2014 (talk) 08:05, 18 November 2014 (UTC)

Escalation of user warnings[edit]

Hi, I see that you served three escalating warnings in five minutes to the same user. The first warning was justified; but the next two were not, because that user had not edited since your first warning - in fact, not for over 100 minutes before that. See WP:VAND#How to warn vandalizing users "A new warning generally should not escalate from a previous warning unless a user received the previous warning and failed to heed it." The second and third warnings were for edits to Wikipedia:Namespace (which they had not edited for 5 days) and Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Edit warring (which they had not edited for 18 days). --Redrose64 (talk) 11:54, 25 November 2014 (UTC)

That user is not here to help and needed a final warning, so I supplied it. We don't have time around here for that kind of crap. They're not an editor, they're either a vandal or incompetent. Dawnseeker2000 14:43, 25 November 2014 (UTC)
You could have gone straight to {{subst:uw-vandalism4im}}. --Redrose64 (talk) 15:10, 25 November 2014 (UTC)

OK, thanks, but a lot of the time I like (in this fast paced environment) to leave individual notices that serve to help anyone else following along. I don't really enjoy this part of WP, but leaving an alternate record of events (other than contribs) for an admin (or anyone else) seems to be a good idea. About four years ago it was suggested that I do it this way. Thanks for stopping in. Dawnseeker2000 15:39, 25 November 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia study- Thank you[edit]

Hello Dawnseeker2000, I hope you remember speaking to me in the summer of 2012 about your motivations for contributing to the health-related pages on Wikipedia. The great news is that the study got published this Wednesday in JMIR (Journal of Medical Internet Research). You can read it here: http://www.jmir.org/2014/12/e260 This would not have been possible without your contributions so once again, I would like to thank you for taking the time and sharing your experiences with me. I also wrote an entry about my own experience with the study, about additional observations and how I plan to further extend my research - published in the WMF blog today: https://blog.wikimedia.org.uk/2014/12/who-writes-wikipedias-health-and-medical-pages-and-why/If you have any comments or questions please get in touch.Perhaps see you at the next Wikimania conference in Mexico!
