User talk:Mintguy

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

I just don't think I can be bothered with Wikipedia anymore. It has stopped being fun. The lunatics are taking over the asylum. I think the spat with User:Netoholic was the last straw. At that time my wiki-stress was at boiling point and Netoholic's continued despicable behaviour made me incensed. His determination to have me de-sysoped (for blocking and reverting a known vandal) through the RFC and RFAr process just confirmed to me that this place has become too full of people who like the bureaucracy and red-tape that is now so much a part of editing here. His behaviour was all about him getting his own way and had nothing to do with what was right for Wikipedia. This was obvious to one and all, but due process had to proceed and I felt like I had been hung out to dry. By the end of that affair I felt drained and my editing has been reduced to a mere trickle. I said I wouldn't be forced out by trolls and vandals, but I guess I have been. So many good editors have stopped editing here recently and I go to join their legions. Farewell one and all.

The Football Wiki[edit]

If you just want to work on football stuff, then go to The Football Wiki. --202.47.51.30 05:53, 10 December 2005 (UTC)


Take a wikivacation and relax. The best way to deal with the bureaucracy is to ignore it - in the case of Wikimedia, it's fairly harmless.--Eloquence*

Article Licensing[edit]

Whenever I need a WikiVacation, sometimes I go back to working on articles that absolutely no one would think to write about so they leave me alone. Anyway if you ever come back and have a moment to consider this, I've "started" the Free the Rambot Articles Project which aims to get users to release all of their contributions to the U.S. state, county, and city articles (if any) under the CC-by-sa 1.0 and 2.0 license (at minimum) or into the public domain if they prefer. A secondary, but equally important, goal is to get those users to release ALL of their edits for ALL articles. I've personally chosen to multi-license all of the rambot and Ram-Man contributions under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike License so that other projects, such as WikiTravel, can use our articles. I was wondering if you would be willing to multi-license all your contributions (or at minimum those on the geographic articles) so that we can keep most of the articles available under the multi-license. Many users use the {{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}} template (or even {{MultiLicensePD}} for public domain) on their user page, but there are other templates for other options at Template messages/User namespace. If you only prefer using the GFDL, I understand, but I thought I'd at least ask, just in case, since the number of your edits is in the top 100. If you do want to do it, simply just copy and paste one of the above two templates into your user page and it will allow us to track those users who have done it. For example:

Option 1
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions, with the exception of my user pages, as described below:
{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}

OR

Option 2
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions to any [[U.S. state]], county, or city article as described below:
{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}

Or if you wanted to place your work into the public domain (which many people do or don't like to do, see Wikipedia:Multi-licensing), you could replace {{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}} with {{MultiLicensePD}} -- Ram-Man 00:10, Nov 26, 2004 (UTC)

Argh[edit]

Sometimes I can't keep up with who's gone. Sorry not to have left a goodbye note sooner -- please don't take it as a sign that your contributions weren't valued. I'll miss seeing you around and hope you can return someday (and we'll see if I'm still around then!). Best wishes in all you do, and drop in on us now and then, if you will, as a favor to those of us who didn't push you over the edge. :-) Jwrosenzweig 09:22, 26 Dec 2004 (UTC)

Template talk:Infobox Biography[edit]

I'm having some issues on John Vanbrugh. People keep removing the infobox! I think it's quite useful as it does take some hunting to find information about birth places, birth dates and death dates/places in many of the articles. Could you comment on the talk page? - Ta bu shi da yu 02:53, 7 September 2005 (UTC)

Are you still here?[edit]

Maybe you've long gone, but I noticed you were one of the earliest editors of Celtic F.C.

Unspecified source for Image:MermaidsAtBrighton.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:MermaidsAtBrighton.jpg. I notice the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this file yourself, then there needs to be a justification explaining why we have the right to use it on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you did not create the file yourself, then you need to specify where it was found, i.e., in most cases link to the website where it was taken from, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the file also doesn't have a copyright tag, then one should be added. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, use a tag such as {{Non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair_use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. User:Angr 13:04, 8 August 2006 (UTC)

Aside from your obsession with CE/BCE you've done quite a good job.

Clapham Junction in Battersea[edit]

You say that Clapham Junction is in Battersea do you mean to imply that it is not in Clapham? If it is outside the area it is named after, this is something it has in common with other railway stations in South London such as West Dulwich and Tulse Hill railway stations.

Thanks for uploading Image:PeterBlakeCover1.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, then you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, then their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Conrad Schumann.jpg.

Retirement[edit]

Well, I hope you are enjoying your retirement. Yeah, the bureaucracy on Wikipedia seems to grow every day. I used to love dealing with administration, but eventually I just stopped talking to anyone and worked on my own. If you ever do come back, you should try that. Working on your own, while you have limited to no human contact and you don't ever get credit for your work, is gratifying. You can do what you want and get stuff done.

Hope your retirement goes well, --Sharkface217 03:39, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia or discuss the relevant issues at its talk page. If you remove the {{prod}} template, the article will not be deleted, but note that it may still be sent to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

Speedy deletion of Image:LewesBattle Small.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Image:LewesBattle Small.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section I1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image is redundant copy (all pixels the same or scaled down) of an image in the same file format, which is on Wikipedia (not on Commons), and all inward links have been updated.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on [[ Talk:Image:LewesBattle Small.jpg|the talk page]] explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article 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 article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Proposed deletion of Thomas Dorsey[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Thomas Dorsey has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Disambiguation page with only two articles. It makes more sense to have disambiguation links at the top of each article, which already exist.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{dated prod}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Walter Görlitz (talk) 21:56, 16 July 2010 (UTC)

You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 14:17, 24 June 2011 (UTC)

Suspension of admin privileges due to inactivity[edit]

Following a community discussion in June 2011, consensus was reached to provisionally suspend the administrative privileges of users who have been inactive for one year, meaning administrators who have made neither any edits nor any logged actions in over one year. As a result of this discussion, your administrative privileges have been removed pending your return. If you wish to have these privileges reinstated, please post to the Wikipedia:Bureaucrats' noticeboard and the userright will be restored per the re-sysopping process (i.e., as long as the attending bureaucrats are reasonably satisfied that your account has not been compromised and that your inactivity did not have the effect of evading scrutiny of any actions which might have led to sanctions). This removal of access is procedural only, and not intended to reflect negatively upon you in any way. We wish you the best in future endeavors, and thank you for your past administrative efforts.

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 you will not longer be able to request restoration of the tools because of your prior inactivity. You have until December 30, 2012 to request restoration or else the policy will prevent you from doing so in the future; you would need to seek a new WP:RFA. Until December 30, you can file a request at WP:BN for review by the crats. Thank you. MBisanz talk 04:22, 3 December 2012 (UTC)
