Poor Translation

I edited the wikipedia page of the Soviet film "Irony of Fate" because I felt the translation of the full name was pretty bad. "Irony of Fate, With Light Fog!" is the literal translation, while "Irony of Fate, or Enjoy Your Bath!" is the most commonly accepted translation (check IMDB). I believe "С лёгким паром" is a colloquialism, while literally meaning "with a light fog" refers to the steam in the Banyas, which are Russian bathhouses. Alas, the translation I provided is the most widely known. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.225.7.2 (talk) 16:50, 3 May 2013 (UTC)

Thanks. I have reverted myself, but changed bath to banya - although rare in English, it is still better than bath, which is usually used in other sense. Materialscientist (talk) 00:14, 4 May 2013 (UTC)

AIV

When I file an AIV report, there's always a very good reason. You've closed most of mine correctly for several years for that very reason. If I can't rely on AIV anymore, I guess I'll have to contact admins on their talk pages when dealing with LTA trolls. Cheers. Doc talk 06:14, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

Please do. I am in the middle of a party, thus can't think for more than a few seconds. I don't recall this LTA case (even if I blocked one of his IPs). Materialscientist (talk) 06:38, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

I know - you're a busy man. Much respect! Trust me: this is an IP-hopping LTA vandal who deliberately hoaxes edits. Cheers :) Doc talk 06:42, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

31?

I noticed a lot of vandals get blocked for 31 hours. Just as an aside, because I'm wondering about it, where does that come from? It seems such a strange period. You'd expect 24 or 48 or something. Cheers,  Yinta 11:31, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

This is to shift the daily routine and prevent the same person from returning the next day. We also issue odd-looking long-term blocks to school IPs to open up holiday seasons, when the ratio of constructive edits to vandalism is higher. Materialscientist (talk) 11:36, 29 April 2013 (UTC)
Aha. Got it, thanks.  Yinta 11:41, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for reverting the vandalism done to this page. However, there was numerous instances of vandalism before that by Triasone. Would you be able to undo all edits by Triasone and/or block them from it further? I don't have admin features and it's painstaking to revert that many single edits. Thanks!--YHoshua (talk) 12:27, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

Look at this page [1]. Not a single constructive edit and multiple last warnings. You contributed too. Clearly this won't stop and is a poster child for WP coddling of shared school IP addresses used for vandalism only. SBHarris 16:23, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

Circumference of a Circle Regarding your changes as you did not find my entry on the page constructive: Fact a 3 x a diameter length of 120 cm' = 360 centimeters ergo each degree measures 1 centimeter: That is an axiomatic absolute; and not you or the censorship of all the old boy publishers of academia can alter that reality: Also if you visit www.geometry-mass-space-time which you probably will not: You will discover that three times the radius squared gives an exact area of the circle,that is exactly three quarters of the area of the square of the diameter.

Peters Township High School

Hi, scientist! Long time no see...... hey thanks for your quick work with the blocks on that article, but as you may have noticed, there are several other ips (some in the Penn State block and some not) that have been adding namecruft and other non factual info, dating all the way beck to last October. Do what ever you think is right, and as always your help is appreciated. Gtwfan52 (talk) 04:25, 30 April 2013 (UTC)

I know. I've blocked only 146.186.45.0/24 for a week, because they caused most disruption. Others are either not recent or harder to pinpoint. School articles are always a headache - most changes, even if not obvious vandalism, are just unsourced and hard to verify. Yet those articles are in a very poor shape and are built up by IPs and newcomers. Thus my personal policy is protect them only against brief attacks, preferably by blocks. I also don't hesitate reverting unsourced additions and tagging the editor with a low-level {{unsourced}} template. Other admins might have their views. Cheers.

Userpage protection

I hope you don't mind a quick question. I was asked earlier today to remove full protection from my userpage: User talk:INeverCry#User page protection. I figured I'd ask you about this seeing that you also use full protection for your userpage, and I've seen other admins who do as well. My basic reason for doing this with my page is that I've done over 100000 deletions, and I don't want to have to worry about page and file creators messing with my userpage. Thanks for your time. INeverCry 03:02, 1 May 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for your comments on my talk. I'm sorry I seem to have gotten you involved in an argument. INeverCry 04:47, 1 May 2013 (UTC)
No problem. There are no policies for everything, and in many situations admins are supposed to act at their own discretion, like this one. At this moment, I see no policy or guideline that would justify a personal request for unprotection, but MZMcBride may surely raise this point with the community, reach consensus, and ask again - I have no objection to that at all. Materialscientist (talk) 04:56, 1 May 2013 (UTC)

Wrongfully blocked

I did NOT deserved to be blocked. I wasn't vandalizing Wikipedia nor was I spamming and you wrongfully blocked me. All I did was a add a section to this page; List of Virtual Console games for Wii U (North America) and somehow you guys saw it as vandalism. I'm not very happy about this one bit and in case you don't know I have Autism. I demand an apology right now! (50.121.7.217 (talk) 08:46, 1 May 2013 (UTC))

My block had a purely technical nature (evasion of block set to your other IP). Talk to and if you wish to rectify the issue. See also edit summaries - they partly explain why your edits were reverted. Nobody said they were vandalism. Materialscientist (talk) 08:52, 1 May 2013 (UTC)

Material

Just to point out that while your block of the IP is legitimate for the article space vandalism this was kind of a goof on your part (thanks for trying though). Think about it, an Admin deleting a page about an Admin is ironic unless i'm wrong about the definition of ironic, plus if you've seen my signature you'll know that it has 'MIVP' in it which if you look in the Edit Summary was included. Don't worry, you're forgiven, all it took was a good faith revert. On that end thanks for handling the block, i'm like the only student of the school with good intentions it would seem and well, I have this account. Just to point out I support your block even though you erred. MIVP - (Can I Help? ◕‿◕) (Maybe a bit of tea for thought?) - (Cakes) 08:59, 1 May 2013 (UTC)

Ongoing test edits from an IP

Recently I noticed an IP user constantly adding numbers to the "Birth date and age" templates of various people, then reverting immediately. I'm relatively new to editing here but once I figured out what was going on I went to leave a warning on User_talk:93.167.80.7, finding they'd done this before, and that you had blocked them temporarily. Can you take another look at what they're doing? And on a side note, is this the correct way to address something like this? Metadox (talk) 04:57, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

I've blocked that IP for 6 months for disruptive editing, thanks. This behavior is rare, but not unique. It qualifies as trolling, and warrants tagging for vandalism and reporting to WP:AIV. Materialscientist (talk) 05:05, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

Uw-unsourced templates

Hello. I initiated a discussion at Wikipedia talk:Template messages/User talk namespace#Uw-unsourced templates complaining that the wording associated with these templates misrepresents Wikipedia policy, seriously in my opinion. The most important purpose of warning templates, I feel, is to alert inexperienced users to policies that they may have inadvertently violated. To accomplish this purpose, the associated statements must be correct! The message associated with {{Uw-unsourced3}}, however, unambiguously states that adding unsourced material violates Wikipedia policy. This is incorrect, and the other levels assert or imply the same misrepresentation. Most newbies' first edits, I'm pretty sure, are uncontroversial improvements that could easily be verified, though no source is provided or needs to be, unless challenged; these are precisely where we want new users to start out.

None of the discussants in this thread use these templates at all often and we therefore know little about the purposes for which they are used. I am concerned because I have encountered cases where they have been used to bully newbies who have, in good faith, added material that was unsourced and had no need to be sourced. Judging by your contribution record, you have made extensive use of all levels of these templates; can I persuade you to contribute to the conversation at WT:UTM? Why are they needed? How can they be revised to represent policy accurately and still have a worthwhile purpose?

If you wish to respond directly, please do so here. I would be very pleased if you would contribute to the WT:UTM discussion instead.

Odd. Spam-advertising accounts are usually blocked indefinitely. Is there a reason Frenziec only got 36 hours? Alex2564 (talk) 05:08, 3 May 2013 (UTC)

Change to Psilocybin Explanation

Hi Material Science. The definition of partial agonism is partial efficacy but does not imply functional selectivity. It may be that psychedelics are partial agonists that happen to be functionally selective but it is misleading to simply say that they are partial agonist which implies that serotonin antagonists should be psychedelic when in fact it is the opposite in that atypical antipsychotics known for their serotonin antagonisms ends psychedelic drug trips by blocking the functionally selective agonism. There is a specific signaling pathway activated by 5HT2a functionally selective agonists such as lysergic acid, mescaline, dimethyltryptamine and psilocin. This pathway is the arachidonic acid pathway.[1] Airsh0w (talk) 05:02, 3 May 2013 (UTC)

Help needed

Hi Materialscientist, this user has been moving pages without giving any specific reasons. Since I can't move those pages back could you please do that. Tolly4bolly 07:49, 3 May 2013 (UTC)

I'm not sure if those moves should be reverted. IMDb.com shows several movies with the name Amar Prem. Please be more specific. Materialscientist (talk) 08:18, 3 May 2013 (UTC)
Per wikipedia rules, unless there's other films with the same name you move or disambiguate with the year the movie was released [(like Cash (2007 film), Cash (2008 film)]. Example: There's no other films with Kati Patang (in wikipedia) and the user is moving to an inappropriate page like Kati Patang (1971). I believe that there's no need to move when there's no other page with the same name and also that user is moving pages in an inappropriate way. I hope this explains. Tolly4bolly 09:17, 3 May 2013 (UTC)
Yes, I know. I was just wondering why nobody has created pages for other Amar Prem movies [2]? Maybe they stand no chance for notability? I simply don't know. Materialscientist (talk) 09:22, 3 May 2013 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── As a creator of hindi film articles, I can say that I also sometimes fear of notability and other tags on the articles and also there are quite few editors who actually create (old) hindi film articles. Anyway, is there any chance that you revert those moves by the users. We can move again when someone creates other pages with the same name. Tolly4bolly 09:30, 3 May 2013 (UTC)

Ok. I just don't know about his claim correcting the release date from 1971 to January 1972 for Dushman (1972 film). Materialscientist (talk) 09:38, 3 May 2013 (UTC)
Thanks and regarding Dushman, the film was released in 1971 (according to imdb, google searches and the movie itself). Tolly4bolly 09:47, 3 May 2013 (UTC)
I (or maybe you) can revert that move, but I was thinking maybe Atul Talashikar was correct? IMDB, Google, and some boxoffice sites I saw are not reliable sources. Would be good to cross-check. Materialscientist (talk) 10:05, 3 May 2013 (UTC)
Well, I went to National Film Archive of India and searched for Dushman but couldn't find anything on the film (just found about 1953 film with the same name). Tolly4bolly 10:26, 3 May 2013 (UTC)

?? Maybe try to rephrase the question? Materialscientist (talk) 22:31, 7 May 2013 (UTC)
This edit has resulted in a url that doesn't work, it has http: in the middle. It's not strictly a vandalism reversion. Sminthopsis84 (talk) 14:58, 8 May 2013 (UTC)

Glasshole

Would you mind looking at Glasshole and its history? The AFD discussion was closed as "merge to Google Glass#Reception" yet has reverted the merge and my attempt to let someone else merge it. Thx. Toddst1 (talk) 03:08, 8 May 2013 (UTC)

Sorry, I would really like to help, but as a wiki editor I share the view of M0rphzone and Bill Price (nyb) - we should aim for a respectable encyclopedia and not an echo of transient news. News outlets have always leaned toward sensationalism, especially with the advent of internet and fierce competition. I don't consider the latest sourcing of this topic in Google Glass good enough for inclusion to wikipedia, but I naively think it is a perfectly good entry for wikitionary (I've never edited it though :-D), as all the blurb about "who mentioned the term" adds nothing to its description and can be stripped. Materialscientist (talk) 04:48, 8 May 2013 (UTC)

Klitschko

Hello, I believe the amendments I have made are 100% correct, as RTD (referee technical decision) and TD (technical decision) are both counted towards knockout total. Please view two recent fights, which both show 51 KO and were also confirmed by the event presentor:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQH9Ehe-FDU @ 00:12:40 - vs. Wach = UD, KO total remains at 51.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RSRbLyfMaow @ 00:01:08 - vs. Pianeta = TKO, KO total increases to 52.

I hope this will clarify the changes I have made. DRONYA (talk) 10:26, 9 May 2013 (UTC)

editing a living person page?

Hi, I don't remember what living person's page I edited or why. I don't think I've made any significant changes to any pages in the last year or so, only slightly grammatical corrections when I notice an error.

I was hoping you could help me clear this up. If there was a way to look at my edit history, I think that would help. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 134.173.248.2 (talk) 18:05, 9 May 2013 (UTC)

All of what I wrote is true. I got thrown out of sixth form over this incident, and He refuses to respond to e-mails, letters, and any other form of communications.

Hello Materialscientist, You sent me this message: "Hello, I'm Materialscientist.

Please, you should have a look of what I did because it appears to be a important change concerning the genus Allogalathea, I tired to update the article by removing the redirection link to Allogalathea elegans. Simply because before 2010, Allogalathea elegans was considered like monospecific species from genus Allogalathea. So that's why I built a new article for the genus and modified also the decription of the species. So please could you correct your action.

The changes of potassium permanganate

I recently edited the entry potassium permanganate and you removed it. However, it is true that KMnO4 need heat or light, so I add a delta (or maybe $h \nu$ is better, because it says "exposed to light"). I didn't realize that the "=" cannot be used in chemical language. I added a up arrow on O2 because it's gas. Why do you think I shouldn't change it? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Yejianfei (talkcontribs) 04:17, 11 May 2013 (UTC)

Hi there Hope you are not involved in heroization of Nazi legacy by denying a UN resolution 20.12.2012 against Nazi legacy.

john G ince

You reverted the old version of the biography and I returned the new version with comments, which are that the old version is misleading. It says that John Ince is currently a politician and leader of The Sex Party, which he is not. The old version refers only to one of his five books; the new version refers to all of his books. The new version also adds other important features of his career. The new version gives a much more accurate picture of this person. If footnotes need to be added, they can be contributed.

For the last time, the logo is meaningless. And if it isn't, you're going to have to honor that same thing with EVERY SINGLE LOGO.

Hello, I am writing this message to you because you are one of the administrators.

I have problems with user DVdm who is constantly reverting my edit of the page "Kid president". My edit has a reference, it is sourced, but the user DVdm constantly thinks the opposite, as the source is not in English and there is probably some confusion with Google Translator.

Ukrainian cities names

Why there are russian and ukrainian names? It isnt logical because the only official language of Ukraine is Ukrainian, and names are just in Ukrainian. --Killrocker (talk) 09:54, 15 May 2013 (UTC)

because those cities were Soviet in the recent past, and therefore many people and literature sources still use the old names. Materialscientist (talk) 09:59, 15 May 2013 (UTC)
Every Ukrainian city was Soviet. So if i understand you, every city in Ukraine should have also russian (soviet) name. So why they are just in some cities? Why Lviv isnt Lvov? Uzhhorod isnt Uzhgorod? Ivano-Frankivsk isnt Ivano-Frankovsk?...
If the literature sources is also a reason, there should be also other non-ukrainian names in the Western Ukraine, but there arent. Why Russian ones are better then Polish, Hungarian, Romanian, Slovak etc.? --78.102.92.26 (talk) 12:45, 15 May 2013 (UTC)

In reference to an editing of the Salvadoran War

The purpose of my editing of this article was to introduce balance and perspective, because it is biased in favor of a particular point of view. They go to great lengths to convince the reader of the innocence of the Soviet Union,Cuba and Nicaragua.Well,the association of American Scientists have posted a page in Wikipedia, that deals with the weapons used in the Salvadoran Civil War.If you visit that page you will find that there is plenty of evidence that suggest that the communist bloc was supplying the guerrillas not only with light weapons but even with antiaircraft missiles.

Mohanlal

The credibility of the reference I had provided was questioned by another editor  Dravidian  Hero  and he said that the website don't meet standards of WP-RS. I am facing a sock puppet action also because of the same . Because of that I removed that edit which I had done. For more info I raised the following question with  Dravidian  Hero  in his talk page which is yet to be answered.

I am providing you with a piece of news and websites which publish the same news kindly tell me which one is reliable and which one is not and why.

All the above websites have the same news with same words as published in southmonitor.com . Please tell me the difference. I know all the websites mentioned above are using a news article provided by the news wire service reuters. The same news with same content including words are 100% same on all websites. If the other websites are reliable then why southmonitor.com is not reliable thats what why I wanted to understand. Accussing me as a sockpuppet really demoralized me.
