Thank you[edit]

Oddly I like pigs - intelligent, sociable and clean animals, but it's unlikely the vandal knew any of this. Thanks for the reversions on the two pages. - SchroCat (talk) 09:52, 23 June 2015 (UTC)

No problem! There are editors, and there are the "others". We may disagree on some things, but we are never enemies. Only the others are. Cheers :> Doc talk 10:07, 23 June 2015 (UTC)

This month will also feature on a review of past and upcoming editathons, including Black Lunch Table Editathon @ MoMA on July 13.

After the main meeting, pizza and refreshments and video games in the gallery!

7:00pm - 9:00 pm at Babycastles, 137 West 14th Street

The actor with the collapsed ibox: I don' care what kind of infobox he has, but I am concerned about the treatment of a user who - AGF, no? - may be a first-time editor, --Gerda Arendt (talk) 07:15, 4 July 2015 (UTC)

You know how it is over there. All we can do is maintain the compromise to ensure that the current infobox is not removed again. It could be a brand-new user, and it could be a sock. Tough call at this point. Either way, the compromise should remain in place to avoid more needless drama. Cheers, Gerda! Doc talk 07:23, 4 July 2015 (UTC)
I must be unclear: I don't care about the kind of infobox. I also don't care if the user is new or not, only that a user raising a concern should be treated factually. We can't expect a new user to know about the background of a conflict that I fail to understand myself. They just see the unusual looks of a page, compared to others. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 07:51, 4 July 2015 (UTC)
It's something we're going to have to live with, at least on this article. There is too much strong opposition to having a conventional infobox here. It's been rehashed so many times, with many edit wars and such. The best solution we have at present is the current compromise consensus. If new users are treated poorly on this issue, there is little you or I can do about it. Doc talk 08:02, 4 July 2015 (UTC)
