Mousesports[edit]

Hello, I looked at several articles about teams in the G7 Teams, and many of them have had trolls go after them, looking for deletion and merging with G7 Teams. I face a similar problem, because I sucessfully prevented a vandal Wikipedia user called TheRedPenOfDoom from convincing the administrators to delete the Mousesports page. Obviously, he doesn't just quit and he's now requesting it be merged with the G7 Teams page, just as the other teams have been requested in the past. Since you've contributed to this in the past, I was wondering whether or not you might like to comment on it in the Discussion page? I know you are more interested in military history, but I need a little bit of help, that's all. DarthBotto talkcont 13:08, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

Discussion regarding Zachary Taylor[edit]

From the history of the article on Zachary Taylor, you appear to be a notable contributor to it. As a result, I thought you might like to get involved in a discussion I have started on the talk page concerning a proposal to change the main picture in the infobox: [1] If you do get involved, thank you.

Getting Pro Gaming Taskforce Restarted[edit]

Hello! I was just looking into helping get the Taskforce on Pro Gaming started again. If you are interested in putting effort into this wikiproject, please post here Best Regards, NativeForeigner Talk/Contribs 21:46, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Cyberathlete Professional League[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated article is Cyberathlete Professional League. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also Wikipedia:Notability and "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Cyberathlete Professional League. Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 01:13, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

communicat dispute[edit]

Thanks your offer to fix dubious sources, parity sourcing. You'll be wasting your time if you try uploading any marxist and/or left=leaning sources to balance POV in line with rules. This is a long story, going way back, and it also includes an AFD'd WW2-related article. The conservative milhist Old Guard at WW2 article are and have for a long time been very well entrenched, and they defend "their" ideologically clouded territory with every means possible against intruders with new ideas or ideas that deviate from the conservative mainstream. Have a look at the various threads, particularly under headings: WW2 origins of Cold War, Flawed Overview, Editing Dispute, Anti-Communist prejudice, Communist-led Resistance, etc. You will see that I took a lot of time and trouble to provide Soviet / Marxist / Western revisionist sources to support proposed edits and discussion. Those sources were instantly and rudely dismissed and rejected by the Old Guard, using stupid false pretexts like "can't be found", meaning presumably can't be found on internet, and too much trouble to visit any good university reference library.

Between the Lies is relevant only indirectly and to the extent that it provides a useful example of how just one apparently revisionist / leftleaning proposed link will come under very intense scrutiny and vetting for reliability etc, whereas clearly unreliable and/or biased mainstream sources are allowed to pass unchallenged and without scrutiny.

A clear and binding ruling must now first be obtained from wiki via mediation/arbitration before anyone wastes anymore time or effort (as I already have) trying to balance edits objectively and in line with stated policy.

If you really want to obtain that Winer book, why not just download it free of charge from the internet? More than two million interested parties have gone that route so far, as I've learnt through correspondence with Coldtype.net and others while doing research for a print-media article about free e-book downloads. You'll even find a pirated Chinese Mandarin translated online edition if you try hard enough.

Thnaks for your interest. Communicat (talk) 13:38, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

Request for mediation rejected[edit]

The Request for mediation concerning World War II (overview article), to which you were listed as a party, has been declined. An explanation of why it has not been possible to allow this dispute to proceed to mediation is provided at the mediation request page (which will be deleted by an administrator after a reasonable time). Queries on the rejection of this dispute can be directed to the Committee chairperson or e-mailed to the mediation mailing list.

brutal korea apology[edit]

Sorry, I've figured out now what happened. I was working from a hardcopy that I'd printed out a few days earlier, without realising that the two refs had in the meantime been changed by someone for some strange reason by joining two the refs together. In short, my hardcopy was different from your onscreen version. Hence we were literally not on the same page. I can see now that one has to check for the very latest online version of anything before jumping to false conclusions. Learning curve. Communicat (talk) 00:17, 1 September 2010 (UTC)

Thanks, your apologoy is greatly appreciated. Wikipedia does take some getting used to. --Habap (talk) 01:36, 1 September 2010 (UTC)

Yawn[edit]

You are such a bore. How come those who seem to do the least actual editing are usually the very same ones who are most vocal and/or caustic in their ongoing bids to discredit me? Communicat (talk) 18:39, 17 September 2010 (UTC)

I contribute to the extent I have time and interest. If you check my editing history, sometimes I write and edit a lot. Other periods, I don't even login. I've written several articles and edited many more, but this shouldn't devolve into a pissing contest about who 'edits more'.
Your writing style provokes me, because you write with such an arrogant and condescending style at times, when the failures you accuse others of are ones you are guilty of as well. --Habap (talk) 20:51, 17 September 2010 (UTC)

Hey[edit]

Just a heads up. Your signature looks a little bit messed up in Talk:Barack Obama. :) − Jhenderson 777 22:37, 24 September 2010 (UTC)

I take that back. It looks like your signature is in the middle of somebody elses. − Jhenderson 777 22:39, 24 September 2010 (UTC)

Obama talk[edit]

I appreciate your saying so. Abrazame (talk) 05:30, 29 September 2010 (UTC)

506th links[edit]

Why change it back? I discussed the move with an admin, who agreed it was unnecessary disambiguation. There were 5 different redirects produced by previous page moves, which is utterly ridiculous. Unless and until there is another 506th Infantry Regiment, there is no need to add the (United States) qualifier. Two admins agreed with me, or the db-move would not have been performed. ---RepublicanJacobiteThe'FortyFive' 17:11, 27 October 2010 (UTC)

The trouble is that every US military unit's page was changed to that format a few years ago and almost none of them have a need for the disambiguation. There was no need for it at the time, and there is no need for it now, but a decision was made back then to change all of them to include the disambiguation. We can, of course, go through every unit article and remove it where it is unneccessary, but I suspect that in another year or two, someone will consult two admins and decide that all of the articles need to have it placed in there again. Sounds like an awful waste of editing time to me. --Habap (talk) 17:59, 27 October 2010 (UTC)
I found where the naming standard was defined in the manual of style, with the numerical designator causing these articles to fall into the 'pre-emptively disambiguated' category [2]. I had to check my contributions history to see that a lot of it was done in January of 2007. --Habap (talk) 18:12, 27 October 2010 (UTC)
Here is the discussion by the WikiProject Military history. --Habap (talk) 18:30, 27 October 2010 (UTC)
Frankly, I have been involved in too many other things, on and off Wiki, to give it much thought. And, as I have not yet had any coffee this morning, I am in no condition to give it much thought now. Do what you like. ---RepublicanJacobiteThe'FortyFive' 13:06, 29 October 2010 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thanks a lot for pointing out my mistake in the ArbCom case. I've just struck the text in question. Regards, Nick-D (talk) 02:48, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

No problem. I looked at it several times and ended up more confused afterwards. --Habap (talk) 13:24, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

Communicat[edit]

Thank you for trying to offer some good advice to Communicat on the Incident noticeboard. He doesn't seem interested in listening.[3] Edward321 (talk) 04:45, 29 October 2010 (UTC)

Sadly, I think he is too focussed on wiki-lawyering to give any thought to actually resolving the issues. --Habap (talk) 12:57, 29 October 2010 (UTC)
Don't let him get to you. Edward321 (talk) 20:44, 31 October 2010 (UTC)
Why are you people so obsessed with this guy? Let me guess ... Communicat (talk) 21:56, 11 November 2010 (UTC)

Re Moran[edit]

Thanks for contacting me on my talk page, rather than just reverting.

I'll point out that I'm an outsider, geographically at least, and came upon the article by chance. The reason I reverted wasn't so much about the controversy itself, which is probably quite notable enough to merit inclusion (I've a vague recollection of seeing it reported this side of the Atlantic). I just feel it is unbalanced. Without knowing the context of what Moran said, it is difficult to judge his intent, and the section doesn't provide this. Also, it seems distinctly POV to note Murray's 'challenge' regarding Arlington without indicating what the response might have been. I'd have thought that if the facts were as clear-cut as the section makes out, a more neutral tone would actually get the point across more effectively, as well as being more in the spirit of Wikipedia standards. AndyTheGrump (talk) 15:39, 29 October 2010 (UTC)

I've responded to your post of 15:45 on my talk page - it will be simpler to discuss there than keep switching pages. AndyTheGrump (talk) 15:56, 29 October 2010 (UTC)

Some clarification.[edit]

You recent edit [4] demonstrates that you somewhat misunderstand the EEML issue. Petri had never been a member of the EEML. I would say, the opposite is true, he is among the most active and persistent opponents of this group of editors. In addition, by the time the conflict around the EEML issue was raging, he served a one year block for legal threat, so he simply physically was unable to be involved. The reason of my post is just to inform you about that.--Paul Siebert (talk) 22:44, 6 November 2010 (UTC)

Thanks. I misread. --Habap (talk) 18:41, 7 November 2010 (UTC)

your suggestion re RFC - communicat[edit]

Hi, Thanks for your suggestion noted. There are actually multiple issues, with multiple noticeboards, so if this is to be done properly, I'd have to fight the action on several fronts simulataneously. Which I'm no longer prepared to do.

In the meantime, as far as I'm concerned, for all practical purposes, and despite arbcom rejection, the main dispute has resolved itself. For the past two weeks since the filing Arbcom request, there has been no further harrassment, edit warring and disruption of my edits. Thanks for your interest. Communicat (talk) 07:57, 8 November 2010 (UTC)

madman theory[edit]

Yeah, good one. Why not work it into aftermath? if you've got time. At least nixon didn't take his shoe off and beat it on the UN podium to get some attention. Communicat (talk) 21:54, 11 November 2010 (UTC)

I don't see how it would fit. It's 30 years after the war, so it's no longer the aftermath of WWII, but simply something that came about after WWII. --Habap (talk) 20:19, 12 November 2010 (UTC)

Talk:Aftermath of World War II[edit]

I have also posted both there and the NPOV noticeboard as well. I agree with your points, but there are additional concerns you did not address. Edward321 (talk) 03:58, 14 November 2010 (UTC)

arbitration[edit]

You are involved in a recently-filed request for arbitration. Please review the request at Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests#military history POV-bias and, if you wish to do so, enter your statement and any other material you wish to submit to the Arbitration Committee. Additionally, the following resources may be of use—

Thanks, Communicat (talk) 22:23, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

World War II opened[edit]

An Arbitration case involving you has been opened, and is located here. Please add any evidence you may wish the Arbitrators to consider to the evidence sub-page, Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case/World War II/Evidence. Please submit your evidence within one week, if possible. You may also contribute to the case on the workshop sub-page, Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case/World War II/Workshop.

On behalf of the Arbitration Committee, AGK 13:25, 30 November 2010 (UTC)

I am impressed by the amount of copyright violation you found. Good work rooting it out. Edward321 (talk) 00:36, 10 December 2010 (UTC)

Civil Rights Movement[edit]

Hi, in my comment at Talk:African-American Civil Rights Movement (1955–1968) I've informally suggested Civil Rights Movement (United States, 1955–1968) (etc.) as an alternative. What do you think of that? (replying there, if you choose to reply, would be preferable to me - thanks). --Born2cycle (talk) 17:58, 7 December 2010 (UTC)

Multi Gaming Clan[edit]

Hi mate, I didnt know that someone had tried to create a page on multi gaming clans thats why I started one. Feel free to give me a hand as I would love to keep this page on wiki as its my first atempt of making a page :) I have more info to add to the page and I'm sure if a couple of people help me out we can keep the page active and keep updating it with current events and information on the subject.

Multi gaming is getting more know and played (if thats the right wording?) so I think we have a good chance of being able to keep a page of its own now :) GSL-Nathan (talk) 16:25, 10 December 2010 (UTC) P.S. New to all this message stuff on here so I hope I did it right?

Yes, you did it right. What I was trying to say is that there is not enough difference between what appears in Clan (computer gaming) and what would go into Multi Gaming Clan, and Multi Gaming Clan is not a term used by the media (newspapers, web pages, books, etc), so the article would be likely deleted. --Habap (talk) 17:52, 10 December 2010 (UTC)

CCI[edit]

Hi Habap, I've opened a CCI concerning Communicat's edits at WP:CCI. Please note that I'm going to be out of town for the next day and a bit and so won't be able to respond to any questions about it - could you please keep an eye on the discussions there? Thanks, Nick-D (talk) 22:46, 10 December 2010 (UTC)

Saw your notes on what parts of Aftermath of WWII were plagiarism and removed the offending sentences. Thanks for spotting this. Edward321 (talk) 01:04, 11 December 2010 (UTC)
While the plagiarism flabbergasted me, it explains why Communicat had little idea about the contradictions in "his" sources and why he had to admit to never having read Wigfall Green for example. I will add to the CCI as I can - I am mighty busy the next few days also. --Habap (talk) 03:03, 11 December 2010 (UTC)
Given that the matter is currently the subject of arbitration, it might be best for us involved parties to take a step back from the CCI so that uninvolved editors can confirm the copyvios. That said, given how blatant the copyvios are it doesn't really matter. Nick-D (talk) 02:13, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

Sock?[edit]

Sure passes the Duck Test and has a similar IP.[5] Then again, opinions are not proof. Edward321 (talk) 00:51, 16 December 2010 (UTC)

Re: Nazi[edit]

I did not know that you were the one making the edits that I reverted. I'm sorry. Also, I even specified that some of the edits were made by Communists.

Communicat's Barnstar promise[edit]

I'm not holding my breath.[6] Edward321 (talk) 00:33, 22 December 2010 (UTC)

I'm not surprised that I assure you I've studied the references diligently, and I know what I'm talking about. is inaccurate. You deserve a barnstar for sure, if not one for each such source. --Habap (talk) 02:50, 22 December 2010 (UTC)

Paragon (guild)[edit]

Sorry, didn't quite finish my edit. Was supposed to be about competition, which was why Ensidia (although, yes, it should have been http://wow.joystiq.com/2010/03/26/paragon-scores-world-first-heroic-fall-of-the-lich-king/ which is more directly addressing Paragon's first instead of Ensidia's "first/disqualified") and the fluctuating rankings note was there (not just purely for the fact that the rankings change, of course ;) ). Techhead7890 (talk) 00:25, 3 January 2011 (UTC)

You've done a lot to make the article better. I just don't know if it will be enough to make it notable. I hadn't realized it was only a few minutes after you'd written the sentence fragment, but wanted to make sure it didn't look sloppy as others checked it. Good luck! --Habap (talk) 02:03, 3 January 2011 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case/World War II[edit]

This Arbitration case has been closed and the final decision is available at the link above. The following remedies have been passed:

The (nationalistic only) Russians[edit]

It's so sad that history has finally exposed a few nationalistic extremists (not all Russians) as Holocaust deniers! If you read Germany 1945, The Fall of Berlin 1945, and watch Auschwitz: Inside the Nazi State, you will understand what the Russians did to Jews, Poles, Russians, Communists, and other victims of the Nazis. You will also realize that the nationalistic Russians who deny the these crimes against Holocaust victims, immediately after the Holocaust (effectively a perpetuation), are Holocaust Deniers.

--Нэмка Алэкс/Nemka AlexTalk 01:24, 13 January 2011 (UTC)
It doesn't surprise me at all that Russian nationalists would be Holocaust deniers. There is a long history of Anti-Semitism in Russia, as there is in most of Europe (I only saw most because I don't know whether there are countries without it). I studied the Soviet Union in college (back when it still existed), so am familiar with the history of Russia and this strain of nationalism. --Habap (talk) 14:37, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

Clarification[edit]

Good day, Arequest for clarification has been filed with Arbcom relative to a case in which you participated or might be affected by. Communikat (talk) 17:50, 25 June 2011 (UTC)

Notes to self:

On never having claimed there was a cabal: [7]
On the COI noticeboard, which it turns out was revealing an actual COI, since Communicat is who everyone thought he was: [8]

On that essay[edit]

Thank you for your comment on my essay; I'm always pleasantly surprised (and appreciative!) when people find the thing. I always hope it's helpful. (I see you've been here since 2005, so you know; we do see the same stuff again and again ...) All the best, Antandrus (talk) 03:26, 7 July 2011 (UTC)

DC Meetups in March[edit]

Happy March!

Though we have a massive snowstorm coming up, spring is just around the corner! Personally, I am looking forward to warmer weather.

Wikimedia DC is looking forward to a spring full of cool and exciting activities. In March, we have coming up:

  • Evening WikiSalon on Wednesday, March 12 from 7 PM – 9 PM. Meet up with Wikipedians for coffee at the Cove co-working space in Dupont Circle! If you cannot make it in the evening, join us at our...
  • March Meetup on Sunday, March 23 from 3 PM – 6 PM. Our monthly weekend meetup, same place as last month. Meet really cool and interesting people!
  • Women in the Arts 2014 meetup and edit-a-thon on Sunday, March 30 from 10 AM – 5 PM. Our second annual Women in the Arts edit-a-thon, held at the National Museum of Women in the Arts. Free lunch will be served!

We hope to see you at our upcoming events! If you have any questions, feel free to ask on my talk page.

An exciting month of wiki events![edit]

Hello there,

I am pleased to say that April will be a very exciting month for Wikipedia in Washington, DC. We have a lot of different events coming up, so you will have a lot to choose from.

First, a reminder that our second annual Women in the Arts Edit-a-Thon will take place on Sunday, March 30 at the National Museum of Women in the Arts.

Coming up in April, we have our first-ever Open Government WikiHack with the Sunlight Foundation on April 5–6! We are working together to use open government data to improve the Wikimedia projects, and we would love your help. All are welcome, regardless of coding or editing experience. We will also be having a happy hour the day before, with refreshments courtesy of the Sunlight Foundation.

On Friday, April 11 we are having our first edit-a-thon ever with the Library of Congress. The Africa Collection Edit-a-Thon will focus on the Library's African and Middle East Reading Room. It'll be early in the morning, but it's especially worth it if you're interested in improving Wikipedia's coverage of African topics.

The following day, we are having our second annual Wiki Loves Capitol Hill training. We will discuss policy issues relevant to Wikimedia and plan for our day of outreach to Congressional staffers that will take place during the following week.

There are other meetups in the works, so be sure to check our meetup page with the latest. I hope to see you at some of these events!

All the best,
James Hare
