Dear Newyorkbrad, please see this polite request, and provide a positive thoughtful response there, if you have one. All the best: Rich Farmbrough00:59, 9 August 2014 (UTC).

Availability note[edit]

It appears I'll have limited online time and access until Wednesday due to a trip. I'll give attention to all pending matters at that time. Apologies for any inconvenience. Newyorkbrad (talk) 02:57, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

Can this be removed?[edit]

Newyorkbrad, another editor started this discussion on the Gender bias in Wikipedia talk page: COI. I replied, but really, it's not about the article, it's about me. Can it be removed? Lightbreather (talk) 01:48, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

Both that and or your user page is the appropriate place to have that conversation. It is regarding perceived problems with the article and edits by you. I'm not sure it's on base though just because you comment in favor of something off wiki doesn't raise to the point of disqualifying you. Hell in a Bucket (talk) 01:50, 12 August 2014 (UTC)
The whole thing seems to me against WP:TALK#USE, WP:TPYES, and WP:TPNO. Lightbreather (talk) 01:57, 12 August 2014 (UTC)
It actually is the right forum because it's based on the actions. I have put my opinion there but I think it's safe to say you can go about your business. We all have opinions and they don't stop us from working, it's when those opinions are disruptive that its a problem but I don't see where the issue was.

FYI, I just quoted relevant policy against bringing up COI on aticle talk pages at Talk:Gender_bias_on_Wikipedia#COI. All those editors know better by now and are just being disruptive. Carolmooredc (Talkie-Talkie) 18:24, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

I was hoping to hear back from Nyb on this, but I've gone ahead and just moved the discussion to my talk page. May that be the end of it. Lightbreather (talk) 18:53, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

As noted just above, I was away for a few days. I hope that this has resolved in my absence. In my real-life world of litigation, there are an awful lot of disputes about forum selection, or in other words, "litigation about where to litigate." The equivalent here would be bickering about where to bicker. Let's try not to. Regards, Newyorkbrad (talk) 00:32, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

preliminary RfC at WP:AN[edit]

Not being one to sit idly by, I have posed a preliminary query at WP:AN concerning what I take to be your suggestion for covering certain political articles for specific periods. Collect (talk) 15:07, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

Not sure of the best way to notify arbcom on this[edit]

But I made a request for a summary motion at Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case#Statement_by_Smallbones. I'll also notify Roger Davies of this. I just want to make sure arbcom sees it. Please let me know on my talk page if there is a better place to let the arbcom know. Smallbones(smalltalk) 01:29, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

I've mentioned your post and suggestion on the mailing list. Regards, Newyorkbrad (talk) 03:38, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
