Orphaned non-free image File:Barberton HS logo.gif[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Barberton HS logo.gif. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Skier Dude (talk) 04:53, 1 December 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the notice. I re-added it to the article; someone must have removed it inadvertently. Thanks again, Malinaccier (talk) 04:49, 2 December 2011 (UTC)

I removed it because it isn't the school's seal. The seal has "Barberton City Schools" around the edge, not "Barberton High School", so if anything it would be on the school district article (which currently does not exist) since it's the logo of the district. It's also likely not copyrighted since there are no copyrightable elements in the image. Trademarked, most likely, copyrighted, no. --JonRidinger (talk) 05:19, 2 December 2011 (UTC)

No problem. I think you are correct. I have deleted the image. Malinaccier (talk) 13:00, 2 December 2011 (UTC)

rfpp template substituting[edit]

hey, {{rfpp}} shouldn't be substituted, as this causes problems with the archiving script. Rami R 16:54, 4 December 2011 (UTC)

Ahh alright, thank you Rami! Malinaccier (talk) 18:30, 4 December 2011 (UTC)

You're back!![edit]

Howdy, you're back!! Where have you been? Are you back for good now? :D Steven Zhang Join the DR army! 21:27, 4 December 2011 (UTC)

I've recently felt the urge to edit again, so I'm back for now haha. I've just been busy in general and just have not been able to make the time to edit. We'll see how long I stay active, but I would like to maintain a certain level of activity from here on out. It's good to hear from an old editor again! Malinaccier (talk) 21:31, 4 December 2011 (UTC)
Ditto. I came back in May. Most of the motivation behind it was due to the fact I had more free time on my hands. Most of my focus recently has been in reforming our dispute resolution processes (see sig link) but I've also been trying my hand at some article work (which only now I have realised just how much I suck at it) :P Had a go at RFA in November, I pulled out because while possible to pass at a crat chat, I didn't want to become an RFB question and much rather putting in some hard work into articles and proving my worth down the track. Stick around. I'm glad to see you again. Steven Zhang Join the DR army! 21:39, 4 December 2011 (UTC)

RFA thank you[edit]

Thank you for your comment and support at my recent successful RFA. Being now the new fellow in the fraternity of administrators, I will do my best to live up to the confidence shown in me by others, will move slowly and carefully when using the mop, will seek input from others before any action of which I might be unsure, and will try not to break anything beyond repair. Best, Schmidt, MICHAEL Q. 22:06, 4 December 2011 (UTC)

Best of luck! Malinaccier (talk) 22:06, 4 December 2011 (UTC)

Terminator Salvation[edit]

I'd glad that this article has finally been protected; I requested it twice... is there any way you can look into this user as well: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/213.8.56.118 ; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/94.230.85.129 ; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/94.230.80.173

All are most likely the same person, and while he/she doesn't refresh to evade bans, they've largely been the reason for the dispute, and have refused to participate in the discussion process. Further, he/she responds to warnings and explanations of WP by leaving his/her own warnings (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk%3AWilliamsburgland&action=historysubmit&diff=464075101&oldid=463884073) and making up his/her own protocol. Trying to host a civil discussion has been infuriating with this user.

Any assistance would be great. --Williamsburgland (talk) 15:25, 5 December 2011 (UTC)

Looking at it now. I can't necessarily tell that they are the same user, and I don't see any block evasion (as you said). I will leave a note on the talk page of the article and attempt to calm people down. Thanks, Malinaccier (talk) 15:32, 5 December 2011 (UTC)
Great, thank you. I don't know if you can take this into consideration, but all three IP's are from the same provider and in Israel. Hardly conclusive, but certainly points in that direction. --Williamsburgland (talk) 15:33, 5 December 2011 (UTC)
Sorry - one more, also same provider, same location: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/212.68.144.42 --Williamsburgland (talk) 16:00, 5 December 2011 (UTC)

Urdunovelspdf.com[edit]

As you've apparently noticed, (119.152.84.228 (talk · contribs · info · WHOIS)) and new account (Hinahanif90 (talk · contribs)) are adding links to an external page hosting PDFs of one of Umera Ahmad's novel (Pir-e-Kamil) as well as on various other pages ([1], [2], [3], [4]) sometimes under the guise of being a source, sometimes as an EL. The page brings up considerable copyright violation concerns for me as there is no indication if they are free, have permission from the publisher or author, copyright status or if a charge is applied. I have reverted multiple times on multiple pages as well as warned both twice now (here and here) and raised this at the RPP page ([5]). However, I'm at the 3RR and the tag-teaming (which gives every appearance of a single person promoting a website) means I can't just continue to revert. Protection probably isn't ideal but it's the only solution I can think of that doesn't involve me getting blocked for edit warring. The spam blacklist page suggested a page block and I was over at WP:AIV when I noticed your protection of the pages in question. Would you consider a block or should I look into another solution? WLU (t) (c) Wikipedia's rules:simple/complex 19:12, 5 December 2011 (UTC)

Giving final warning now. I was just reading up on copyvio policy, and it appears that adding links to copyvios is considered "contributory infringement." If you notice them continuing to add links, let me know. And you can violate 3RR if they are engaging in vandalism or are making copyright violations :). Thanks! Malinaccier (talk) 19:17, 5 December 2011 (UTC)
It's less the 3RR issue (though it's a concern) and more the whack-a-mole that I'd like to address. I'll keep an eye out and drop you a note if I notice anything. Thanks, WLU (t) (c) Wikipedia's rules:simple/complex 19:19, 5 December 2011 (UTC)

Protection[edit]

Hi Malinaccier, a few hours ago I requested Semi-protection for the Thomas Macdonough page, as it had at least 8 cases of vulgar vandalism since Nov.16., yet the request was declined for -- "not enough recent disruptive activity to justify protection." These are the examples:

12:56, 19 November 2011? : it was also known he had gay cowboy anal sex with his commander every night.

11:24, 19 November 2011 : who was gay and had a 2 inch penis

08:18, 16 November 2011? : ==sex life==

08:17, 16 November 2011 : ==First SEX War==

07:55, 16 November 2011 : ==Other sex life==

07:53, 16 November 2011 : At the beginning of the sex life in 1812

07:49, 16 November 2011 : ==War of raping==

07:46, 16 November 2011 : He raped his sister

There are other cases also. These edits not only involved the body of text but the section titles as well. Isn't this considered disruptive? I would like to know how much vandalism a page has to endure to be 'enough' , and what constitutes 'recent' . It is not right that editors have to stand over articles and guard them like this. Don't quite understand why IP users are given more consideration than Wikipedia articles and the editors who have given their time and effort to create these articles. I am hoping that perhaps you didn't notice all of these examples and will reconsider your decision as it is only a matter of time before this happens again. . Best of regards, -- Gwillhickers (talk) 22:52, 6 December 2011 (UTC)

Hello Gwillhickers, thanks for the note. I declined the request because the vandalism was over the course of a month (which is a long time in terms of protection) and by only three IP editors. Usually, protection is warranted if the page is being vandalized by multiple vandals (greater than three unique vandals) over the course of three days or so. If you want to review the protection policy, you can check that out here.
I understand your concern as an editor of articles (I am one myself) as it is sometimes frustrating to see random people come and attack your hard work; however, compared to many other articles, Thomas Macdonough is relatively untouched. If it is any help, I have added the page to my watchlist so I can keep a closer eye on it. Thank you and happy editing, Malinaccier (talk) 23:02, 6 December 2011 (UTC)

Marlins Roster Template[edit]

Apparently no one wants to wait til deals are official before trying to add the player to roster. I'm surprised no one has tried to add Pujols to the roster as well. Jose Reyes deal should be official later today. Wednesday Dec 7, he will be formally introduced to media in Dallas at winter meetings. — Preceding unsigned comment added by BravesInsider13 (talkcontribs) 22:56, 6 December 2011 (UTC)

Yep, that's why I semi protected the template :). Thanks for the note and happy editing! Malinaccier (talk) 23:04, 6 December 2011 (UTC)

Prophet (company) article[edit]

Dear Mailinaccier, I just posted this article in the mainspace and would greatly appreciate it if you could please review it when you have a chance. I also could use your help in an administrative fashion. While creating this article I inadvertently created another version, which I am unable to locate (while in Edit mode, see the top of the posted article - there appear to be references to the earlier version there). I intended it to be a draft on my sub-page but something went awry. If you can please remove the earlier version, that would be wonderful. Thank you!Braedon Farr (talk) 17:21, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

MSU Interview[edit]

Dear Malinaccier,

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) 04:01, 20 February 2012 (UTC)

What exactly are my new permissions (Couldn't find that)? Can I know who nominated me? --Tobias1984 (talk) 20:48, 26 February 2013 (UTC)
You now have the autopatrolled permission, which basically means that any article you create is automatically marked as "patrolled" in the new pages log. Basically nothing changes except that you have been labelled as a trusted article creator that does not need to be patrolled. You can read more about what that means here. You were nominated by User:Gilo1969 in this edit. Usually users request permissions for themselves. Let me know if you have other questions. Malinaccier (talk) 20:55, 26 February 2013 (UTC)

WP:FOOD Needs You![edit]

Hi there Malinaccier! I've noticed you have yourself listed as a member of the Food and Drink Wikiproject. Unfortunately it looks like the project has been slowly sliding into inactivity except for a couple of people. That makes me a sad potato, and nobody likes a sad potato amirite?

If you'd like to turn my frown upside down, can you do two small things?

First off, go here and add {{Tick}} (YesY) next to your name if you're still part of the project.

Second, go to the project talkpage and participate in a discussion about how to make the project more active, and how to go about making articles in our area of interest a lot better.

You don't want to make me cry, do you? Potatoes have a lot of eyes you know. So come on, join in! :)
