Please note the following guidelines for my talkpage:
DO watch or pay attention to my talk page. If contacted here, I will reply here to avoid a divided conversation. Likewise, if I start a conversation on your talk page, and you attempt to divide it, I will cross-post my original statement here and reply here.
DO sign your posts with ~~~~ - it makes it far easier to determine who added a comment and when.
DO respect the banner below and do not ask for aid in those topic areas.
DO NOT discuss FlaggedRevs at all. I will delete all such messages on sight. This includes discussion of Reviewer-related topics. (See the banner beneath, too.)
DO NOT ask me to review administrator actions - As of July 11, 2010 I do not have that power.
DO NOT nominate me for adminship - I will automatically reject all such requests. Likewise, DO NOT give me reviewer rights. Drink the beer you yourself brewed.
DO NOT post here if Grawp is attacking a Wikipedia page. Instead, contact an administrator privately.
DO NOT, if you are an administrator, protect this talk page. We have an abuse filter for a reason. Use it.
DO NOT use any slurs whatsoever - I will delete the comment and all further ones from you off of my talk page.
This user will not work in any of the following areas of Wikipedia:
-Any article under any iteration of FlaggedRevisions (Category:Wikipedia pending changes protected pages (level 1))
-Any area directly connected to a real-world ethno-political conflict (e.g. Arab-Israeli conflict, Tibetan independence movement)
-Religion (including atheism-related pages)
-Politics (especially as concerns the United States)
-Topic areas that are or have been at some point under ArbCom sanctions (e.g. Homeopathy, Bogdanov Affair)
Any requests for aid in these areas will be deleted on sight.


Jeske, the link to your essay in your answer to question 2 on the RfA is showing as a redlink. Is there a typo or something? I ask because I'd very much like to read the essay, not only regarding the RfA. Regards, Newyorkbrad (talk) 12:21, 24 August 2011 (UTC)

Odds are it is; let me look at my watchlist and I'll fix the link. —Jeremy v^_^v Components:V S M 12:22, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
Fixed; missed a capital letter. —Jeremy v^_^v Components:V S M 12:24, 24 August 2011 (UTC)


Endless games of protect and unprotect are productive then? I am trying to suggest a way around that. LadyofShalott 02:05, 25 August 2011 (UTC)

Speaking from experience, it's the only practical alternative. He's attempting to keep legitimate IPs or other users from contacting us by forcing us to semiprot and/or spam death threats he's too cowardly to make himself. (FYI, the subpage option doesn't work. I've tried it.) —Jeremy v^_^v Components:V S M 02:07, 25 August 2011 (UTC)
The parenthetical part of your response above was the information I needed. It would have been more helpful (and frankly much less aggravating) if you had said that from the start - even in the edit summary where you removed my first post. LadyofShalott 02:11, 25 August 2011 (UTC)

User talk:BreeBaby2282[edit]

I declined the speedy deletion nomination on User talk:BreeBaby2282. personal attacks, by definition, need to be directed at someone. That was just a random vandalizing message, not a personal attack, and, as such, doesn't justify speedy deletion. Blanking the content and warning the user is sufficient. If the comment was on someone's else's talk page, it might possibly qualify for RevDel, although that would be a discretionary issue. Qwyrxian (talk) 06:40, 25 August 2011 (UTC)

(through forced smile) Thank you, I will keep that in mind. —Jeremy (v^_^v Contributions) 06:41, 25 August 2011 (UTC)

Arbitration report[edit]

Hullo Jéské. The regular writer of the Signpost '​s Arbitration report stepped down last week and I was wondering, seeing as you are listed as a backup writer, whether you might be able to fill in? It would be much appreciated, as we are rather understaffed at the moment. Regards, Skomorokh 23:31, 16 December 2011 (UTC)

Hi Jéské, can you let me know if you're still willing to serve as a writer for the Arb report? Skomorokh 21:29, 20 December 2011 (UTC)

At present, no. I've been fighting almost-persistent migraines for the past couple months and have not been keeping up with events. —Jeremy v^_^v Components:V S M 21:32, 20 December 2011 (UTC)
Talkpage stalker here. Sympathy with the migraines. Not going to offer a cure - you've probably tried them all by now except the Ancient Egyptian one of applying a live Nile catfish (the electric Nar fish) to your temples. --Elen of the Roads (talk) 22:10, 20 December 2011 (UTC)
I was worried you were going to suggest that other Ancient Egyptian cure, extracting the offending grey matter through the nasal passage. No worries Jéské, hope you get well soon and can enjoy your holidays. Skomorokh 22:12, 20 December 2011 (UTC)
I'm right now using loratadine as a prophylactic; it's working. —Jeremy v^_^v Components:V S M 00:20, 21 December 2011 (UTC)
That might work. And be more pleasant than an electric catfish. I get terrible migraines sometimes, so I do sympathise.Elen of the Roads (talk) 00:33, 21 December 2011 (UTC)

Secure poll[edit]

Hi: '...the 2010 Oversight/Checkuser elections, and it wound up, rather infamously,' Can you give me a link to any discussions surrounding this? I'm curious to know what happened. Thanks. --Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 13:06, 20 December 2011 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Arbitration Committee/CheckUser and Oversight/May 2010 election is the main page, and after the announcement of the poll results at the ArbCom noticeboard, an RfC was opened. The general consensus there was that SecurePoll was the direct cause or a cofactor of Amalthea (and nobody else) receiving CU or OS rights. —Jeremy v^_^v Components:V S M 21:17, 20 December 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for your note. I agree that the proposed username isn't good either, but so long as he wants to pursue a name change then he can work out the best alternative. If he starts editing with the old account we can block it again.   Will Beback  talk  20:34, 16 February 2012 (UTC)

Jennifer Hutt[edit]

In regards to your denial of undeletion of the page for Jennifer Hutt.

You say "you may contact the administrator who closed the discussion". On the page "Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Jennifer Hutt", I do not see the word 'Closed' anywhere. How do I know which administrator did the closing?

There is this "The result was delete. Courcelles 23:47, 16 August 2011 (UTC)". But on that admin's page, this is posted... "Courcelles is taking a short wikibreak and will be back on Wikipedia soon."

What do you recommend as a next step if I wish to pursue this further?

Should I proceed to Deletion Review?

I apologize if this is counter to established Wiki protocol. This is all new to me.

gopackjo Gopackjo (talk) 15:31, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

First, I did not formally deny the undeletion request. However, an admin will do so if they have not already. You have two options from here: Recreate the article in your userspace, paying attention to our sourcing and notability policies, or take it up to WP:Deletion review. —Jeremy v^_^v Bori! 18:22, 24 March 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for the reply and the suggestions. If I was to recreate the article in my userspace, would I be able to access the original article? The archived copy that I found was an older, poor sister to the one that was deleted. gopackjo Gopackjo (talk) 19:40, 24 March 2012 (UTC)
Ask an admin to email you the contents. Do bear in mind that since the article was deleted at AfD, you won't be able to use the exact same contents, except as a base - see WP:CSD#G4. —Jeremy v^_^v Bori! 19:56, 24 March 2012 (UTC)


I see that at User talk: you wrote "The block was issued in February, and an autoblock only lasts 24h. Thus, there is no autoblock to overturn." You may be interested to learn that, if a blocked editor tries to edit, the autoblock is reactivated for another 24 hours. In a case like this one, where an IP that has never edited before, but tries to edit at a time very close to when the blocked user tries to edit and reactivates the autoblock, it is a pretty safe bet that it is the same person trying to evade the block. JamesBWatson (talk) 19:23, 14 April 2012 (UTC)

I was actually not aware of this; thanks, James. :) —Jeremy v^_^v Bori! 19:28, 14 April 2012 (UTC)

Hantavirus Risk in Yosemite[edit]

Hi, I noticed you have contributed to the discussion of User:'s block because of reasons that I cannot see. However, I assume it has something to do with his involvement with Yosemite National Park's Talk Page. Recently, I have also tried to add a section acknowledging its the Hantavirus Risk in Yosemite National Park, but my edit was similarly dismissed by User:Jojhutton. If the mention of deaths is the issue, then I believe we can include the information without directly mentioning the deaths.

I have written a new draft of this edit in one of my subpages: User:Airelor/Yosemite_National_Park.

Please take a look and suggest any other edits or make any changes as you see fit before I try to add it to the main Yosemite_National_Park page. I am very new here and while I don't think this is related to the topic of FlaggedRevisions or Troubles or anything that you have notified as areas you will not work in, I deeply apologize if this is the case. If you know of any administrators or Wikipedia Users you can refer this draft (or me) specifically to for advice about this matter, that would be very appreciated too. Thank you. Airelor (talk) 21:39, 16 September 2012 (UTC)

I invite you to reread my comment on August 18th on that page. —Jeremy v^_^v Bori! 03:58, 17 September 2012 (UTC)

Notice of change[edit]

Hello. You are receiving this message because of a recent change to the administrator policy that alters what you were told at the time of your desysopping. The effect of the change is that if you are inactive for a continuous three year period, you will be unable to request return of the administrative user right. This includes inactive time prior to your desysopping if you were desysopped for inactivity and inactive time prior to the change in policy. Inactivity is defined as the absence of edits or logged actions. Until such time as you have been inactive for three years, you may request return of the tools at the bureaucrats' noticeboard. After you have been inactive for three years, you may seek return of the tools only through WP:RFA. Thank you. MBisanz talk 00:20, 4 December 2012 (UTC)

MBisanz, I couldn't request the tools back even if I had wanted to. —Jeremy v^_^v Bori! 04:18, 4 December 2012 (UTC)
My apologies. I tried to screen the notification list to prevent notifying people who were ineligible. I've very sorry for leaving you the inapplicable note. MBisanz talk 16:20, 4 December 2012 (UTC)

Thank you.—Ryulong (琉竜) 03:38, 6 June 2013 (UTC)

Don't thank me; I just self-reverted and invited him to email oversight. I'm going to err on the side of caution since there appears to be an off-wiki harassment campaign against him. —Jeremy v^_^v Bori! 05:21, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
Yes I've been emailed concerning this as well but it still does not solve things.—Ryulong (琉竜) 06:58, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
He emailed me instead; I've revdel'd the affected edits (and emailed Nihonjoe to fill him in). Given the specific circumstances I don't think oversight is necessary, although Hitomaro's free to contact them if he wishes (and may already have done so). No blame attached either of you guys; it's just an unfortunate situation all round (of which I'm sure you're both already aware). Ryulong, please do carry on with the debate regarding MOS-JA (the macron debate really needs to be resolved sometime this century...) but do take care not to make that connection again; there are potential real-life consequences for the editor involved. Cheers, Yunshui  07:19, 6 June 2013 (UTC)

Watch your edit summaries[edit]

I don't need to look at the edit summary and need to see someone saying "Shut up, McBride" any more than you need an ANI notice. Watch your language, please. μηδείς (talk) 01:39, 13 August 2013 (UTC)

I don't need to read a condescending message from someone who assumes that just because they have no VE edits means they have nothing to contribute to the conversation. Besides, last I checked, "shut up" isn't a profanity. —Jeremy v^_^v Bori! 08:27, 13 August 2013 (UTC)

VOSS Solutions[edit]

Hi Jéské Couriano, Please remove protection from VOSS Solutions, I have a new content for it. I made same request to Nyttend and Phantomsteve. Thank you. —JOHNMOORofMOORLAND (talk) 02:01, 10 September 2013 (UTC)

Did you even read the userboxes at the top of the page? —Jeremy v^_^v Bori! 02:06, 10 September 2013 (UTC)
I came here to ask your input, and only after reading this message did I even notice the userboxes. At least on my browser, they're exceedingly small; I can't read anything in the left box without a lot of effort. Nyttend (talk) 02:11, 10 September 2013 (UTC)
No, you asked me to remove protection from an article, and even absent the userboxes there's a section further up where it's made explicit that I don't have the tools. Given that I have not had the tools for three years I can't review, much less undo, my own admin actions. I'm sorry, but I have little tolerance for those who blindly ask the impossible of someone.
That said, I will not object if someone were to remove the protection provided that the same issues that got the article salted (repeated re-creation as either a copyright violation or a blatant advertisement) do not reoccur. —Jeremy v^_^v Bori! 02:16, 10 September 2013 (UTC)
My comment goes far beyond the admin tools bit — I'm trying to suggest that you expand the boxes if you want anyone to read anything that you've said in them. Look at my talk page; perhaps you could try a big horizontal banner? Nyttend (talk) 02:51, 10 September 2013 (UTC)
My technical (read:coding) skill is virtually nonexistent, Nyttend. I used infoboxen because I knew how to do those easily enough. —Jeremy v^_^v Bori! 03:07, 10 September 2013 (UTC)
You seem to think that I have coding skill. Wrong :-) I just copy/paste code and adapt it. I've taken the code from my page and put your message into it, producing this result; what do you think? Nyttend (talk) 03:22, 10 September 2013 (UTC)
I like it; I've modified it with linebreaks so that it reads cleanly. —Jeremy v^_^v Bori! 03:26, 10 September 2013 (UTC)

As a result of discussion with other editors regarding Wikipedia:Pending changes/Request for Comment 2014, I have made a slight change to Proposal 12 to remove the so-called "exclusivity clause". For the change, see this diff. I am posting this notice on your talk page because you have already inserted comments on the original proposal, and I want to make sure you are aware of the change so that you may revise your comments if you wish to do so.

help request[edit]

hey how are you ?

you mentioned in a post that a number of my sources where unusable, having read through i whittled down my list to the following,

and i wanted to know if any of the sources i have included there do not qualify ?

thanks again

The ones that don't pass WP:RS in the list above have been struck through. The rest have enough coverage about the guy to be used to help establish his notability. —Jeremy v^_^v Bori! 21:41, 22 February 2014 (UTC)

Hey i would love your advice on - having collected a rich vein of advice from a number of editors i realise that there is a bit of conflicting information on which sources in that list are usable so i was hoping that you could peek a look and set things straight, it may only take your experienced self a few minutes and yes i probably went overboard (including Social Media - but only on points without controversy) i am aware but i am just so scared when i see some articles with barely no sources yet surviving (i know that X does not mean Y) i am somehow just looking for mentorship, i am a quick learner though, sometimes i am stubborn but all in good faith i promise - feel free to deliver edits or whatever in any direction you see fit. honestly i trust that yours will be a better hand than mine.

Unblock request comments[edit]

Hey, there's no particular need to point out to people blocked by a checkuser that most admins can't deal with the unblock; there are several checkusers who monitor the unblock queue (stack? heap?) and who can deal with such requests -- it's why we're there. It's not a problem that you do this, but it does seem like something of a waste of typing. --jpgordon::==( o ) 22:54, 4 May 2014 (UTC)
