font on File:Cabal approved.svg[edit]

Hi, how did you get that "rubber stamp" look on the text on File:Cabal approved.svg? Thanks • Ling.Nut 17:10, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

I'm sorry I can't answer. Only approved cabal members can know the secret of the trade. -- m:drini 18:42, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

Ruego perdon, por favor[edit]

Bibliotecario Drini, te suplico, ruego e imploro que cambies mi bloqueo a 6 meses o 12 meses (cualquier bloqueo aceptare), pero no el para siempre; tu eres uno de los pocos biblios que tienen poder para eso, por que si pasa mas de una semana mi cuenta sera olvidada; por favor aun estoy a tiempo, te suplico piedad por favor, por ejemplo a Dodo le expulsaron 4 veces y 4 veces fue perdonado; a Rizome en el 4 bloqueo lo expulsaron, yo solo te pido una ultima oportunidad, ya no hare mas bromas, solo te pido piedad no pensaba que me expulsarian en mi 3 bloqueo por una broma; ademas pedi perdon de todo corazon, rogue perdon con todas mis fuerzas en mi discusion pero fue en vano... no sabia que algunos biblios nunca perdonaban... -- Globalphilosophy (talk) 16:06, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

Te imploro misericordia compañero, llevo mas de 3 años donde he contribuido mucho, no quiero olvidar los mejores momentos de mi vida: mis 709 articulos, mis 152 categorias y mis 19 anexos, te suplico por favor dame cualquier bloqueo (8, 10, 12 meses) por favor compañero, 12 700 ediciones son dificiles de lograr ! , si me cambias el bloqueo no tendras problemas, por que tienes poder para eso ¡no quiero perder mi cuenta! haria lo que sea por recuperarla ¡por Dios ayudameeeee! te estare agradecido toda la vida Drini. -- Globalphilosophy (talk) 16:20, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

Si hubieras actuado con más madurez durante la discusión (y ciertamente antes) en vez de evadir el bloqueo repetidamente para poner drae:patéticos mensajes victimistas, quizás se podría haber rebajado. -- m:drini 16:32, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

La gran desesperacion de perder mi cuenta, me obligo a actuar de manera victimista (ademas no cometi vandalismo), rogue perdon como ahora en mi discusion, pero todavia tengo salvacion por favor bloqueame 10 meses, te suplico amigo mio, dame cualquier castigo, te ruegoooo -- Globalphilosophy (talk) 16:39, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
Te ruego es escuches a mis compañeros que hasta ahora desean que cambien mi bloqueo, por favor Drini, por favorrrrr dame una ultima oportunidad... -- Globalphilosophy (talk) 16:43, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
Drini escuchame con mi corazon en tus manos, en 3 años no he insultado a nadie, ni aun en mis bloqueos escuchastes una mala palabra de mi, sere pobre pero soy educado, Wikipedia es lo mejor que conozco, alli se encuentran todo el conocimiento humano, no sabes el dolorrrrr de perder una cuenta aqui... te duele en el almaaaaaaaaaa... -- Globalphilosophy (talk) 16:48, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
Sabes te dire un secreto Drini que nadie sabe, yo cuando estaba en el colegio alla por el 2002 y 2003, buscaba juntar todo el conocimiento humano y conocer todas las ciencias, era un loco que solo pensaba en enciclopedias, en el saber universal, sabes me duele mucho no haber conocido a la Wikipedia en el 2003!!!!!! por que sino seria ahora el hombre mas feliz del mundoooooo, a mi antes me llamaban loco-enciclopedia alla por el 2003, y sabes cuando conoci a la Wikipedia en febrero de 2007, estuve muy feliz, demasiado feliz... pero ahora estoy destruidoooo, este dolor es grande (nuncaaa pense en dejar a la Wikipediaaaaa), te prometo por favorrr un cambio de bloqueo Driniiii, aun no es tarde... te suplicooo 12 meses lo que sea, lo que sea.... -- Globalphilosophy (talk) 16:59, 6 April 2010 (UTC)



Stop pestering my talk. You were blocked on eswiki. Your case was debated on eswiki's administrator noticeboard. You blew it with sockpuppetry and block evading at the same time yor block reducing was being considered..

Leave me alone for I can't (and in any case wouldn't want) to overturn your block against the consensus. Stop saying that I "have powers" for I don't. Your case was openly decided on the noticeboard. Move on. -- m:drini 17:03, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

Drini no entiendo el ingles, solo poco; por favor y por que no me cambiastes el bloqueo a 6 meses o algo? ademas el tablón de anuncios sigue abierto. Por eso te ruego piedaddd por Dios, por lo que mas quierass te lo suplico, tienes la oportunidaddd de darle vida a mi rumbo, puedes aprovechar que el tablon no esta cerrado mira aquiiii. -- Globalphilosophy (talk) 17:09, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

Posible titere en Wikipedia español[edit]

Hola Drini, es muy posible que el usuario Nicanor G sea un titere de alguien, ya que no tiene ni 50 ediciones y ya utiliza el monobook-suite y lo peor de todo escribe en Wikipedia:Café/Políticas/Política de remoción de bibliotecarios/02, tu deberias investigarlo o no?. -- Globalphilosophy (talk) 17:34, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

No, pues no ha roto regla alguna. -- m:drini 17:41, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
Quee!! su Ip, no lo podrias rastrear?? me parece increible tu respuesta, pero parece un experto en sus ediciones, no se? pero yo desconfiaria mucho si solo tiene 7 dias en la Wikipedia. -- Globalphilosophy (talk) 17:45, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

Podrias cambiarme el bloqueo de mi cuenta en español, para poder escribir solo en la discusion, y para que mis amigos me puedan escribir sus palabras de amistad hacia mi por mi expulsion; seria muy importante para mi... -- Globalphilosophy (talk) 17:52, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

no. -- m:drini 18:13, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
Con estas palabras tuyas, entiendo que no te intereso para nada, no te interesa tu projimo como pensaba antes, pense que tenias corazon pero me has demostrado lo contrario... pense que ibas a desproteger mi discusion... para que mis amigos me escriban algo... me decepcionas compañero... nunca olvidare tus palabras... -- Globalphilosophy (talk) 18:18, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

Consulta[edit]

Hola Drini, no entiendo por que Rαge, me dio un bloqueo de que no puedo editar mi pagina de discusion: http://es.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Especial:Registro&page=Usuario%3AGlobalphilosophy&type=block si no envie correos electronicos con mi cuenta de Wikipedia en español, a ningun usuario envie correos electronicos con mi cuenta de Wikipedia en español, por eso exijo amablemente la accion de editar en mi pagina de discusion. Saludos -- Globalphilosophy (talk) 03:42, 10 April 2010 (UTC)

Por favor compañero, hablame solo en español. Gracias -- Globalphilosophy (talk) 03:46, 10 April 2010 (UTC)


Equivocacion[edit]

Hola Drini, tienes alguna afirmacion al decir: ya basta de evadir bloqueos y hacer tonterías, no me confundas con el Ip 200.106.36.70, ya que esa Ip no es mia y acaso ¿un CheckUser nunca se equivoca? Espero amablemente tu respuesta. Saludos -- Globalphilosophy (talk) 15:55, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

You evaded your block, you are that ip.
And since you're indefblocked, and you already had your unblock request, there's no reason for the eswiki talk page to remain open. -- m:drini 17:46, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

Consulta[edit]

Hola estimado Drini, hay alguna probabilidad de que me cambien el bloqueo de expulsado por otro menor; como hicieron a otros usuarios como: Ferbr1, Vitamine, Billyrobshaw, Dodo, etc; ahora estos usuarios readmitidos colaboran eficazmente en el proyecto. Saludos de corazon, -- Globalphilosophy (talk) 19:02, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Sam Korn/Catholic Church of Wikipedia[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

Thank you for experimenting with Wikipedia. Your test worked, and the page that you created has been or soon will be deleted. Please use the sandbox for any other tests you want to do. Take a look at the welcome page if you would like to learn more about contributing to our encyclopedia.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion, or "db", tag; if no such tag exists, then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hang-on tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Mhiji 21:19, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Template:Signedun[edit]

A tag has been placed on Template:Signedun requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section T3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a deprecated or orphaned template. After seven days, if it is still unused and the speedy deletion tag has not been removed, the template will be deleted.

If the template is intended to be substituted, please feel free to remove the speedy deletion tag and please consider putting a note on the template's page indicating that it is substituted so as to avoid any future mistakes (<noinclude>{{transclusionless}}</noinclude>).

sockpuppet editing[edit]

There is an open WP:SPI case looking at sockpuppet editing primarily on the Johann Hari/ Talk page. As you edited the Johann Hari/Talk page between 2004 and 2011, your input is welcomed.

Mexcaltitán Ballet[edit]

I asked someone to check something for me as it appeared that the article had disappeared. It was listed as one of the 2011 artists in the es.wiki version of the Festival Cervantino. The link to this Ballet was blue after we uploaded it, then later in the day, it turned red. That list has since been removed. Then when I did a search for the article (under several spellings) it did not appear. So I asked people to check for it in the deletion logs of es.wiki as I am not familiar with the procedure there. Another reason for this is that there is a sudden great deal of interest in these articles as of yesterday morning which just happens to coincide with the emails sent out by certain members of Wikimedia México demanding that Club Wikipedia account themselves for the activities relating to this Festival. At the very least, all this looks suspicious. As I understand it, there are some problems with the redacción of the articles but the overwhelming response has been to slap etiquetas on the work and trash it in discussion pages. Isnt there a version of "dont bite the newbies" in es.wiki? These are novatos and no one from WM-MX seemed terribly concerned about articles created before by these guys, not even the ones created on the 20 August edit-a-thon for the Children's Museum of Indianapolis. So what is different now? And why so eager to paint this work has horrible rather than helping out new editors? I have looked here on your talk pages and you have had mistakes in en.wiki in the past. I would hope you would be more sympathetic to mistakes being made by those who are learning.Thelmadatter (talk) 17:51, 25 September 2011 (UTC)

I appreciate that. These students need mentors and I cannot help them with redacción in es.wiki. Im working on my end to get them mentors, but any help you can provide is appreciated.Thelmadatter (talk) 18:01, 25 September 2011 (UTC)

Well, apparently I've gone and asked for a deletion on a template you protected under the logic of "legal reasons". Are you sure we need it? I'd hate to delete it without your permission (in fact I'd never hear of it). Magog the Ogre (talk) 05:48, 4 December 2011 (UTC)

Little Fatty and the Spanish Wikipedia[edit]

Hi! I heard that you have an interest in BLP topics and are knowledgable about the policies of the Spanish Wikipedia.

Anyway, Qian Zhijun (the person) and Little Fatty (the meme) recently survived a DRV on the English Wikipedia because now Qian has become an actor and an entertainer, and there are multiple in-depth sources describing them in detail in Chinese and English.

As I did searching for more info, I found that there are articles in Spanish that cover the subject:

If I was to start a stub about the meme or the person on the Spanish Wikipedia, what would I need to do? Should I discuss it with someone first? Thanks, WhisperToMe (talk) 09:08, 24 January 2012 (UTC)

MSU Interview[edit]

Dear Magister Mathematicae,

My name is Jonathan Obar user:Jaobar, I'm a professor in the College of Communication Arts and Sciences at Michigan State University and a Teaching Fellow with the Wikimedia Foundation's Education Program. This semester I've been running a little experiment at MSU, a class where we teach students about becoming Wikipedia administrators. Not a lot is known about your community, and our students (who are fascinated by wiki-culture by the way!) want to learn how you do what you do, and why you do it. A while back I proposed this idea (the class) to the communityHERE, where it was met mainly with positive feedback. Anyhow, I'd like my students to speak with a few administrators to get a sense of admin experiences, training, motivations, likes, dislikes, etc. We were wondering if you'd be interested in speaking with one of our students.


So a few things about the interviews:

  • Interviews will last between 15 and 30 minutes.
  • Interviews can be conducted over skype (preferred), IRC or email. (You choose the form of communication based upon your comfort level, time, etc.)
  • All interviews will be completely anonymous, meaning that you (real name and/or pseudonym) will never be identified in any of our materials, unless you give the interviewer permission to do so.
  • All interviews will be completely voluntary. You are under no obligation to say yes to an interview, and can say no and stop or leave the interview at any time.
  • The entire interview process is being overseen by MSU's institutional review board (ethics review). This means that all questions have been approved by the university and all students have been trained how to conduct interviews ethically and properly.


Bottom line is that we really need your help, and would really appreciate the opportunity to speak with you. If interested, please send me an email at obar@msu.edu (to maintain anonymity) and I will add your name to my offline contact list. If you feel comfortable doing so, you can post your nameHERE instead.

If you have questions or concerns at any time, feel free to email me at obar@msu.edu. I will be more than happy to speak with you.

Thanks in advance for your help. We have a lot to learn from you.

Sincerely,

Jonathan Obar --Jaobar (talk) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Chlopeck (talkcontribs) 04:00, 20 February 2012 (UTC)
