Thank you very much. Reguyla (talk) 23:04, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

I just wanted to say thank you to those that voted in my ban review. Special thanks go out to Fluffernutter for requesting the review as well as The Land and Protonk for their outstanding job moderating the review and their closing remarks. Reguyla (talk) 23:13, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Edit Filter[edit]

@NawlinWiki: Thank you, I believe there are at least 4 filters with something to do either with my name or the words Ban or Abuse. I don't remember what it said but there was a few times that I triggered 3 or 4 edit filters at one time. Reguyla (talk) 08:27, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

After reviewing the names of the edit filters and the timeframes of my edits, any one of the following could contain something related to me. Unfortunately I cannot narrow it down farther.
102, 260, 294, 466, 579, 611, 619, 623, 624, 628. I hope this helps. Reguyla (talk) 09:12, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
Adjusted #102. The rest were responding to those horrible things you were saying ;) , not to your name. NawlinWiki (talk) 12:35, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
Great thans for looking. Reguyla (talk) 12:51, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Comment about the standard offer[edit]

I am going to try my best not to comment at obvious trolling, but in case anyone looked here for a comment, since I cannot edit the discussion where it was made, I wanted to clarify a comment that Roger Davies made. The Arbcom, at no time, offered me a "standard offer". In fact, they consistently told me that the decision was not theirs to make, that they wouldn't make it even if it was and that it was a community decision and BASC denied my request repeatedly.

Aside from that, I just want to put this tragic tale of abuse and corruption behind me. Too much time and resources were wasted on the Kumioko Witch hunt by everyone including me. Regardless of any offers that may or may not have been made in the past, I beleive in this project (eventhough I believe it has lost its way in many respects) and it was obvious that members of it were willing to employ any tactic and inflict any casualties in order to keep me out. This "deal" was, IMO, a reasonable compromise for everyone to move on and for everyone to save some face and for the collateral damage to the project and its members and potential future members to cease. The damage that was being inflicted through edit filters, range blocks and unnecessary reversions of edits, as well as my comments and emails was causing uncalculable damage to the project and I felt it needed to end. I for one am glad it did.Reguyla (talk) 12:38, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

  • See you in six months, Reguyla. Drmies (talk) 04:36, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
    • Thanks, I hope thats true. There is still a lot of opportunity and desire for people to blame me for stuff or Joe Job my account so we'll see. Reguyla (talk) 14:09, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
      • And now it's one day less: we're making progress. Try and forget old griefs, if you can, or as much as you can: both sides will need to do so, since rehashing it will only make them fester. Take it easy, Drmies (talk) 18:43, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
        • [1] = "Yuuuuup. Kumioko writes some great content." Lol, no wonder I was banned. You too Drmies, take care. Reguyla (talk) 19:34, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
In 6 months, if you haven't socked/evaded your ban, I'll support re-instatement. See, I'm not inflexiable :) GoodDay (talk) 19:32, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
No worries GoodDay I can easily stop myself from socking. As I stated in the review the only reason I did it was because I considered the original ban and how it was carried out to be illegitimate and simply ignored it, but I still went out of my way not to hide who I was eventhough some tried to prevent me from signing. So you don't need to worry about the if's of me socking. The problem is there are still folks out there who will try and make it look like me, and I created accounts from a lot of public places that could appear like socking if someone else creates an account there. So we'll see how long it is before someone finds something to accuse me of. You may not be one of them, but there are some clever individuals in the community that don't like me and will try and make sure I don't come back. Reguyla (talk) 13:18, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

Homs governorate offensive[edit]

I found some strangeness on a redirect if anyone is watching this page and wants to fix it. Take a look at Homs governorate offensive. Its an article and a redirect all in one. Maybe we should choose one or the other? Reguyla (talk) 20:42, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

Fixed it. Thanks for spotting, looks like someone didn't quite know how to do the move they intended to. The Land (talk) 15:53, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
Your welcome and thats kind what I thought too. Reguyla (talk) 16:14, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

Obvious copyright problems on Rubin (radar)[edit]

Here is another article problem for anyone who may be interested. Rubin (radar) appears to be mostly a cut and past copyright/plagiarism violation from the "reference" websites. The article itself meets notability but it needs a pretty much complete rewrite. Reguyla (talk) 20:52, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

No offense, and I'll be glad to see you back when scheduled, but talk pages of blocked users should not be used for purposes other than discussing your block. I'm sure everyone appreciates your effort, but perhaps you'd be better keeping your attention away from en.wikipedia until your block expires. Regards, JoeSperrazza (talk) 21:15, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
No offense taken but this edit doesn't really reflect someone who would welcome me back in 6 months. I do find it rather ironic though that in my review several admins and contributors attempted to convince other members of the community that I am not here to "build an encyclopedia", when any idiot who looks at my contribution history can clearly see that is bullshit (especially since my contributions exceed the vast majority multiple times over) and every effort is being made to prevent me from doing that. But oh well, no use crying over spilt Vodka. I also appreciate the suggestion that I take a break but unfortunately (or fortunately depending on how you wish to interpret it) I use Wikipedia almost everyday and often multiple times. Its also well known where I work that I "Used to" edit fervently so a lot of people bring problems like this to me that they think might need attention. Technically your right though and I am not just dropping every problem I see, I ignored multiple incidents of vandalism and other problems and only dropped 2 here that were sufficiently worthy to invoke IAR. But if the climate has changed on the project and copywritten material and plagiarism are less concerning than in the old days feel free to ignore my suggestion. Worse case scenario this is just a note to myself and in 6 months when the interests of the project take precedence over abuse and Wikipedia politics, the changes will still be here and I will take care of them then. Reguyla (talk) 23:45, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

Stuff that needs done[edit]

I am making these notes for myself. If someone sees them and feels compelled to do them, great, if not, I will fix upon my return from banishment.

  1. Bayan (khan) is a person and needs the Persondata template, an infobox and birth and death cats. Reguyla (talk) 20:55, 4 September 2014 (UTC)
    Also should let the AWB folks know about this one so they can refine the is article about a person logic. Reguyla (talk) 16:13, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
  2. Copyright and plagiarism problems on Rubin (radar). Reguyla (talk) 20:56, 4 September 2014 (UTC)
    Will rewrite and repost in Feb if not already done. Saved a copy offline for review and rewrite. Reguyla (talk) 18:57, 10 September 2014 (UTC)
  3. The Theresa Gallagher linked under Judges here is not an actress so this link is not correct. Reguyla (talk) 19:55, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
  4. Personal property has misplaced redirect syntax at the bottom of the introduction section. Reguyla (talk) 20:04, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
  5. Forrest Gump, the last line under sequel doesn't make any sense. Reguyla (talk) 00:03, 6 September 2014 (UTC)
  6. B. J. Penn (United States Navy) reads like a resume and needs to be cleaned up and rewritten. Need to make sure this is vetted through other members of the community to ensure no conflict of interest.Reguyla (talk) 14:39, 6 September 2014 (UTC)
  7. AWB is converting fl. to [[Floruit|fl.]] on Wiki, will add links later. Need to let the AWB folks know that this probably shouldn't happen for non Wikipedia Wiki's. Reguyla (talk) 16:12, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
  8. AWB is adding the Orphan template to articles at Wikia when Autotagger is used. Again this should not be happening for non Wikipedia Wiki's. Reguyla (talk) 16:12, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
  9. Diego Suárez Corvín needs an infobox, fill out the rest of the persondata template and additional cats. Reguyla (talk) 20:36, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
  10. Add article for Ordre du Mérite combattant. Translation from French Wikipedia. Article on French WP] Reguyla (talk) 18:48, 10 September 2014 (UTC)
    Add List of Medal of Honor recipients buried in Arlington National Cemetery (maybe without the list of though, thats not really needed). Once done add it to the template and the see also sections of the recipients who are buried there. Reguyla (talk) 16:58, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
  11. Talk:Craig Lucas has the WikiProject Template for Georgia (country) but should have the one for the State. Reguyla (talk) 14:32, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
    Also Talk:Laura Ryan apparently. Reguyla (talk) 14:37, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
    and 2 more: Talk:Richard T. Warner, Talk:Wesley Woods. Reguyla (talk) 18:11, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
    And Talk:Cherokee Path. Reguyla (talk) 16:56, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
  12. Submit KY-7 for deletion or redirect to STU-III. Reguyla (talk) 17:30, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
  13. The cleanup listing link in the table here still points to the toolserver. It either needs to be replaced or removed. Reguyla (talk) 19:28, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
  14. Advanced persistent threat contains obvious copy vio. Its already tagged but I will keep watching it until its fixed. Reguyla (talk) 20:59, 16 September 2014 (UTC)
  15. Third Reserve Army of Observation needs refs or at least the unref template. Reguyla (talk) 20:26, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
  16. HMS Thunder Child needs a space after the comma in the lede sentence. Reguyla (talk) 21:39, 29 September 2014 (UTC)

Category for deletion[edit]

@WilliamJE: - I may catch hell for this since I am blocked till February, but I saw the notice you left on my old talk page and I wanted to let you know that account has been abandoned. Its fine with me if you delete that category though. I understand and agree with the reasoning. Reguyla (talk) 21:48, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

Redirects on old account[edit]

I have made your old account redirect to this page (so you shouldn't have the above problem again). Sorry for making so many edits, I had trouble getting it to work right. —Neotarf (talk) 02:27, 8 September 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. Reguyla (talk) 02:51, 8 September 2014 (UTC)
No problem. —Neotarf (talk) 03:11, 8 September 2014 (UTC)

RFA is dying[edit]

I haven't posted for a while because frankly this project is spiraling faster to its own death and I find myself losing interest in it with every passing day. There simply aren't enough people here anymore who want to build an encylcopedia and too many who just want to be in charge and in control.

For example, I find it very amusing that someone started a discussion about lowering the pass requirement at RFA here to a simple majority because of the growing ineffectiveness of the RFA process and a bunch of clowns start insulting them for submitting the idea. I think its a pretty good idea myself, much better than the ideas (which do not exist) that the opposers are submitting.

Submitting a link showing that there are 1393 sysops and then inferring there isn't a problem only shows their lack of understanding of the problem. If they did understand it, they would realize that only about 100-150 admins actually do anything. All the rest are just dead weight and either only edit occassionally, oftentimes once or less a month or not at all. They would additionally realize that of those approx. 150 admins, about 20 or so are abusive and/or are incompetent at being admins and should have the tools removed (several should never have gotten them in the first place) from them because they are more of a hindrence to the project than an asset. There is no doubt that RFA is dying and I say let it die. As long as a few people are willing to submit, then some will argue that it works, which it clearly does not. They would also know that the admin related areas have increasing backlogs, vandalism stays for longer periods of time and spam is making it through at increasing rates.

The Wikipedia culture has degraded to such a point that in order to fix any of our problems they have to be so bad they are ineffective or they stop working completely, so that the community will get off their collective asses and fix it. Otherwise, the community just criticizes those who try and fix the problems or kick them out of the project so they can protect their empires and continue their ongoing and longterm patterns of abuse against editors they don't like, to prove they are the ones with power.

What a disgraceful and disappointing project this place has become. Wikipedia had, and continues to have, such potential, only to be wasted because entrenched admins and a few of their supporters or those who lack the morale courage to do the right thing sit quitely and watch the abuse. The project needs editors willing to do the right thing and get rid of the few abusive and deadbeat admins dragging it down. I have read no less than three discussions recently where even admins have admitted having some admins in mind that should be cut, but they fail to do anything because its too much work and they just don't care. Perhaps my banishment for critizing these abusers sent the desired message to the community of what happens when they are criticized! Reguyla (talk) 17:08, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
