Wise words given to a blocked editor: This absolute adherence to the idea that your interpretation of the rules is paramount
and everyone else's input is merely an obstacle to overcome is an accurate summary of how you ended up in this position.

No matter how cute you are, expect no quarter in the cruel world of Wikipedia.



While Wikipedia's written policies and guidelines should be taken seriously, they can be misused.
Do not follow an overly strict interpretation of the letter of policy without consideration for the principles of policies.
If the rules truly prevent you from improving the encyclopedia, ignore them.
Disagreements are resolved through consensus-based discussion, not by tightly sticking to rules and procedures.
Furthermore, policies and guidelines themselves may be changed to reflect evolving consensus. (WP:NOT)

IMPORTANT: A last short needed look[edit]

Please see possible "closing arguments" here, [1]. Settling this there, n that way, would end the issues raised in inordinate length above. Consider a final persuasive comment, on any matter you wish? Cheers. Le Prof Leprof 7272 (talk)

WikiProject Optare tagged as inactive[edit]

Hi Liz, I just noticed that in March you tagged WP Optare as inactive, although your edit summary only stated that you were adding a Defaultsort parameter. [2] Can you remember whether you intentionally tagged it as inactive? If so, should we ask WP Buses to take it over, and redirect {{WikiProject Optare}} accordingly? – Fayenatic London 16:02, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

I redirected the template and left a note on both project talk pages. – Fayenatic London 09:42, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

Toolserver replacements link[edit]

Hi, Liz. You have a link at User:Liz/Whiteboard3 for Toolserver replacements. That link is to User:Anna Frodesiak/Grey sandbox, which, as you can see, is now deleted. The new link is Wikipedia:Wikimedia Labs/Toolserver replacements. Best wishes, Anna Frodesiak (talk) 23:16, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

Oops. A thousand pardons. I see the link to that sandbox was just from a userpage paste. Please disregard. :) Anna Frodesiak (talk) 23:17, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

WikiProject Good articles Future GAN Backlog Drive[edit]

Hello everyone! Hope you've all been having a great summer!

TheQ Editor recently proposed the idea of having another Backlog Drive in either September/October or November/December of this year. For those of you who have participated in the past two drives you know I was the one who organized them, however, come September, this will be my most important year in school so I will not be able to coordinate this drive (if it happens). TheQ Editor has volunteered to be a coordinator for the drive. If any of you would like to co-coordinator, please notify TheQ Editor on his talk page.

If you would be interested in participating in a Backlog Drive sometime before the end of this year, please notify TheQ Editor. Also, make sure to specify what month(s) work best for you.

At the time this message was sent out, the backlog was at 520 nominations. Since May, the backlog has been steadily increasing and we are currently near an all time high. Even though the backlog will not disappear over one drive, this drive can lead to several others which will (hopefully) lead to the day where there is no longer a backlog.

As always, the more participants, the better, and everyone is encouraged to participate!
