Email OK?[edit]

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section.

Hello. Would like to send you WP Email as followup to a Qs I left on Helpdesk that you replied to. Is it OK? Thanks. Ihardlythinkso (talk) 13:18, 28 April 2014 (UTC) p.s. [

You can send me email if you like. However, I don't feel comfortable discussing another editor's conduct off-wiki, so if you're going to ask about that, please do so here. --NYKevin 13:58, 28 April 2014 (UTC)
It's not the conduct per se I like to discuss; rather what are my options to deal with it, abstractly. (So can give Email a try? Else this thread might magnet drama from said admin or his supporters etc. I'd like to avoid that.) Thx for consider, Ihardlythinkso (talk) 12:59, 29 April 2014 (UTC)
@Ihardlythinkso: I'm sorry, but I just don't feel comfortable discussing that sort of thing off-wiki. Your options are more or less what I mentioned at the help desk. We have a dedicated process for resolving disputes, and I really don't see other reasonable ways to handle this. --NYKevin 13:50, 29 April 2014 (UTC)
You wrote above that you don't feel comfortable discussing another editor's conduct off-wiki, and I responded that I wouldn't discuss an editor's conduct, just ask what my options are to deal with unspecified conduct. Now you're going back on what you wrote, if I'm reading this simple thread correctly. (Did you change your mind in this short thread?) You said to use AN, but if I do that, admin buddies of the admin I have a problem with, will come to his defense with irresponsible statements, as has already been done in a related AN. Besides the fact that admins back up other admins, there are admin buddies who aggressively back up their admin friends, no matter how irresponsible their comments. So how is AN a solution to irresponsibility already shown on my concerns, in a related AN? (Is what I've described what you call a "process"?) Saying "follow DR" but then unwilling to look at these pertinent considerations isn't helpful. Your answer to go to AN doesn't work for me and isn't logical as per as I have described. I need to consult with someone on what to do different. What I've gone through is already Wiki-hell, so I don't have much sympathy for you responding that you "aren't comfortable" after I met your condition re sending my need for guidance via Email. Ihardlythinkso (talk) 01:45, 30 April 2014 (UTC)
The answer is no. You are not trying to calmly resolve a disagreement with the administrator in question, or else you'd be talking to them instead of me. You are trying to get the administrator in trouble. I will not assist you in that endeavor. Either follow one of the numerous DR processes, or don't, but don't drag me into this. --NYKevin 02:26, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

Tagging Redirect pages (WP:RFD#Next Hungarian parliamentary election)[edit]

Hi NYKevin,

The reason for tagging redirect pages is so that people coming to those pages can see that the redirect is up for discussion and so can join the discussion: they might also want to fix their bookmarks or at least keep an eye on them, if the result of the redirect is to retarget it, they will get a surprise. It's standard practice to tag the redirect when it is the redirect that is up for discussion. I mistakenly added another entry by doing so, and User:Steel1943 kindly fixed it up for me as I was away for a long weekend.

The COPYVIO I mentioned not because I believe it is such, but to allow other editors to judge: I've had no part in it, and since the redirect and the target are both being discussed it would seem helpful to me to tie the two together: I mentioned the redirect at the COPYVIO discussion for the same reason.

Kind regards
