Freedom of speech = New WikiProject[edit]

Hi there, I'm notifying you as I noticed your excellent work on the Featured Quality article, Birth control movement in the United States. I've recently gone ahead and created WP:WikiProject Freedom of speech. If you're interested, here are some easy things you can do:

  1. List yourself as a participant in the WikiProject, by adding your username here: Wikipedia:WikiProject_Freedom_of_speech#Participants.
  2. Add userbox {{User Freedom of speech}} to your userpage, which lists you as a member of the WikiProject.
  3. Tag relevant talk pages of articles and other relevant pages using {{WikiProject Freedom of speech}}.
  4. Join in discussion at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Freedom of speech.
  5. Notify others you think might be interested in Freedom of speech to join the WikiProject.

Thank you for your interest in Freedom of speech, — Cirt (talk) 17:40, 25 October 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for the invitation. It looks like a great project ... unfortunately, I'll be busy in real life for the near future, so I probably wont be able to contribute much. However, I do note that two of my featured articles involve major free speech principles:
So I guess that proves that I'm interested! --Noleander (talk) 18:12, 25 October 2012 (UTC)

WikiCup 2012 October newsletter[edit]

Trophy.png

The 2012 WikiCup has come to a close; congratulations to Wales Cwmhiraeth (submissions), our 2012 champion! Cwmhiraeth joins our exclusive club of previous winners: Dreamafter (2007), jj137 (2008), Durova (2009), Sturmvogel 66 (2010) and Hurricanehink (2011). Our final standings were as follows:

  1. Wales Cwmhiraeth (submissions)
  2. Canada Sasata (submissions)
  3. Conradh na Gaeilge Grapple X (submissions)
  4. Scotland Casliber (submissions)
  5. New York City Muboshgu (submissions)
  6. Wisconsin Miyagawa (submissions)
  7. Minnesota Ruby2010 (submissions)
  8. Michigan Dana Boomer (submissions)

Prizes for first, second, third and fourth will be awarded, as will prizes for all those who reached the final eight. Every participant who scored in the competition will receive a ribbon of participation. In addition to the prizes based on placement, the following special prizes will be awarded based on high performance in particular areas of content creation. So that the finalists do not have an undue advantage, the prize is awarded to the competitor who scored the highest in any particular field in a single round.

Awards will be handed out in the coming days; please bear with us! This year's competition also saw fantastic contributions in all rounds, from newer Wikipedians contributing their first good or featured articles, right up to highly experienced Wikipedians chasing high scores and contributing to topics outside of their usual comfort zones. It would be impossible to name all of the participants who have achieved things to be proud of, but well done to all of you, and thanks! Wikipedia has certainly benefited from the work of this year's WikiCup participants.

Next year's WikiCup will begin in January. Currently, discussions and polls are open, and all contributions are welcome. You can also sign up for next year's competition. There will be no further newsletters this year, although brief notes may be sent out in December to remind everyone about the upcoming competition. It's been a pleasure to work with you all, and we hope to see you all in January! J Milburn (talkemail) and The ed17 (talkemail) 00:37, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

Please review non-admin closure[edit]

Hello. There was an RfC a couple of months ago at Wikipedia_talk:Non-free_content/Archive_57#RfC:_Album_covers_in_artist_articles. I thought the consensus was clear, but one editor did object. I posted a request for a formal closing about a week ago, at Wikipedia:AN/RFC#Wikipedia_namespace. User Eraserhead closed it yesterday as "no consensus". I'm not sure that is correct. Could you please review the closure. Thanks. --Noleander (talk) 18:46, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Happy to help.
In looking over the discussion, it seems to me that it was a rather productive discussion in that many things were discussed and clarified.
That said, I don't believe that there was an overall consensus.
So at this point, I would suggest taking all that you all learned in the previous discussion, and laying out one or more new RfCs on each specific thing you're looking to update/change in the policy and/or footnotes.
I hope this helps. - jc37 19:03, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

Well, it looks like you've got JSTOR now, but I e-mailed you the articles that seemed most relevant off it anyway. Sorry for the delay. I wish the LLDM were better covered in that databank, but honestly didn't see much. I'll check to see if ProQuest and others might have additional content JSTOR doesn't have tomorrow, and mail you anything that seems to have material that would be significant and directly relevant to a main article on the LLDM.

Hi there. You're one of the first 100 people to sign up for a free JSTOR account via the requests page. We're ready to start handing out accounts, if you'd still like one.

JSTOR will provide you access via an email invitation, so to get your account, please email me (swalling@wikimedia.org) with...

  • the subject line "JSTOR"
  • your English Wikipedia username
  • your preferred email address for a JSTOR account

The above information will be given to JSTOR to provide you with your account, but will otherwise remain private. Please do so by November 30th or drop me a message to say you don't want/need an account any longer. If you don't meet that deadline, we will assume you have lost interest, and will provide an account to the next person in the rather long waitlist.

The new round of comments has been addressed in one form or another.

Dispute resolution volunteer survey[edit]

Peace dove.svg

Dispute Resolution – Volunteer Survey Invite


Hello Noleander. To follow up on the first survey in April, I am conducting a second survey to learn more about dispute resolution volunteers - their motivations for resolving disputes, the experiences they've had, and their ideas for the future. I would appreciate your thoughts. I hope that with the results of this survey, we will learn how to increase the amount of active, engaged volunteers, and further improve dispute resolution processes. The survey takes around five to ten minutes, and the information you provide will not be shared with third parties other than to assist in analyzing the results of the survey. No personally identifiable information will be released.

Please click HERE to participate.
Many thanks in advance for your comments and thoughts.


You are receiving this invitation because you have either listed yourself as a volunteer at a dispute resolution forum, or are a member of a dispute resolution committee. For more information, please see the page that describes my fellowship work which can be found here. Szhang (WMF) (talk) 02:46, 29 November 2012 (UTC)

Can you help?[edit]

Dear Noleander - I'd like to thank you for overseeing the AfD discussion about Innovation Journalism.

It seems some people have targeted this article. The argumentation for deletion failed the time you oversaw the discussion There was no support for OpenFuture's charges of 'neologism' and 'conflict of interest'. Having lost the case, OpenFuture then edited the article, removing all the references to the Stanford initiative, as well as to the seminal paper - in short, everything with my name attached to it. This seems like a peculiar way of rewriting the article, its more like a personal vendetta. The 'neologism' banner was not taken away, even though the argumentation for neologism had failed.

Before long, another AfD appeared, using exactly the same charges as the first time. This time the decision was a clear 'keep'. I stayed away from the discussion, I'd had enough the first time. So 'Neologism' was thrown out once again. And still, the "neologism" banner remains, and OpenFuture continues to behave aggressively, pushing the same old accusations in the same ungraceful manner. I hope this is not considered an OK Wikipedia culture.

So now I am asking you for advice:

What is required in order to remove the 'neologism' banner? Who can do it?

I feel quite intimidated by OpenFuture. He is from Sweden - I am Swedish and it;s a small country - He uses a pseydonum and he clearly dislikes me. I accept that there may be critique in the matter, but I would like the discussion to be gracious. It can't be right that people hiding behind pseudonyms can go on harassing people who dare appear under their real names. I am beginning to wonder if I have been stupid to use my real name.

thanks for your attention, i'll appreciate your thoughts on this.

Suspicion[edit]

Looking at the Margret Sanger article, I noticed a SPA named "DonnaCzahchy". She is good for one edit, but it is a highly suspicious one. Within 5 minutes after registering, she made this edit that you reverted a few hours later. I don't have any real proof that is is another sockpuppet or meatpuppet, other then this flimsy one. What do you think? Leave it or take it to SPI? The Banner talk 19:30, 29 November 2012 (UTC)

And what to think of Alyssaisalive? The Banner talk 19:36, 29 November 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for detecting those suspect edit histories. I'd say there is a 50-50 chance they are sock/meat puppets; and 50-50 they are just random 1-shot editors that have a strong POV against Sanger. As for an SPI: personally, I wouldn't bother unless the disruption becomes more frequent or more pronounced. But it is your call. --Noleander (talk) 19:52, 29 November 2012 (UTC)
The point is that Bob Enyart is trying to get his block lifted, claiming he is innocent. The Banner talk 19:54, 29 November 2012 (UTC)

Star Wars and Indiana Jones connection[edit]

Hello, I overhauled Star Wars and Indiana Jones connection by removing much of the trivia (for which I could not find reliable sources) and adding a "Shared themes" section. I think the article is in much better shape. While it is more sparse, I think there is a stronger case for having a stand-alone article as long as the standard is maintained. Please let me know at the AfD discussion what you think. Erik (talk | contribs) 21:24, 17 December 2012 (UTC)

Juan Manuel de Rosas[edit]

Neolander, Cambalachero has replied at Juan Manuel de Rosas's talk page. Once you have free time, could you take a look? --Lecen (talk) 00:16, 27 December 2012 (UTC)

Done. --Noleander (talk) 20:31, 28 December 2012 (UTC)

Caudillo and Dictator do not have the same meaning. "Caudillo" is the name given in Hispanic (or Spanish) America for powerful landlords who were local political chiefs. They would tamper elections to place either themselves or their allies in political offices. They used their laborers (called "peons") as private forces, and that's why Caudillos were either military officers or members of militia or of the national guard. Some of the them became dictators of countries or even of provinces, such as Justo José de Urquiza who ruled the Argentine province of Entre Ríos. However, not every caudillo was a dictator nor every dictator was a caudillo. Rosas was a caudillo and is regarded as such by historians. But Caudillo and Dictator can not be used in place of the other. Lastly, MarshalN20 is far from being a neutral observer. He and Cambalachero have both often teamed together in controversial articles, such as Falkland Islands sovereignty dispute. They were also together against me in articles such as Platine War and Paraguayan War. His sudden appearance in Rosas' article (which he has never edited nor took part in any dicussion in its talk page) is not a coincidence. --Lecen (talk) 11:09, 29 December 2012 (UTC)

Why do you seek to impose something that is cleary disputed?
Regarding your ugly claims about me, have you not noticed that we are among the few active South American editors in the en.Wikipedia? We have common interests, and every so often we find each other as a result of it.
I have nothing against you and, in fact, appreciate the work you do for the encyclopedia. If you could please leave aside the battleground mentality, surely we could all get along and hold discussions like gentlemen.
Regards.--MarshalN20 | Talk 04:49, 31 December 2012 (UTC)

There is a good reason to explain why I am avoiding sources written in Spanish (or to be more precise, coming from Argentine authors). Leslie Bethell, one of the most respected Latin Americanist historians, said: "The enormous bibliography on Rosas is a hindrance rather than a help to understanding." He also list Julio Irazusta (whose "Vida política de Juan Manuel de Rosas, a través de su correspondencia" Cambalachero used as source) as "rosista" (that is, Revisionist). The other authors cited by Cambalachero are not even mentioned by Bethel.[2] Does every Rosista work should be avoided? Of course not. Bethel even mention a few. They should, however, be seen with careful. But what is the Rosista (or Revisionist) school? I'd recomend taking a look at pages 114 (beginning with the last paragraph: "While Sarmiento's ideas prevailed as Argentina's...") to all of 115 of this book. I'd like to also suggest reading Leslie Bethell's "Argentina Since Independence" begining with page 26 and until the end of page 27. It is amazing how Bethell's work says the exact same thing about Rosas as John Lynch's Argentine Caudillo: Juan Manuel de Rosas. Let's compare:

Bethell: "Rosas also controlled the bureucracy. One of his first and most uncompromising measures was to purge the old administration; this was the simplest way of removing political enemies and rewarding followers". (See the link given above)
Lynch: "Rosas also controlled the bureaucracy. One of his first and most uncompromising measures was to purge the old administration; this action was the simplest way of removing political enemies and rewarding followers". (Lynch, 2001, p.82)
Bethell: "While he controlled the legislature, Rosas also dominated the judicial power. He not only made law; he interpreted it, changed it, and applied it. The machinery of justice no doubt continued to function: the justices of peace, judges for civil and criminal cases, the appeal judge, and the supreme court all gave institutional legitimacy to the regime. But the law did not rule. Arbitrary intervention by the execute undermined the independence of the judiciary. Rosas took many cases on himself, read the evidence..., examined the police reports, and, as he sat alone at his desk, gave judgment, writing on files 'shoot him', 'fine him', imprison him,' 'to the army'." (pages 26 and 27)
Lynch: "Rosas not only controlled the legislature but also dominated the judicial power. He not only made law; he interpreted it, changed it, and applied it. The machinery of justice no doubt continued to function: the justices of peace, judges for civil and criminal cases, the appeal judge, and the supreme court all gave institutional legitimacy to the regime. But the law did not rule. Arbitrary intervention by the execute undermined the independence of the judiciary. Rosas took many cases on himself, read the evidence..., examined the police reports, and, as he sat alone at his desk, gave judgment, writing on files 'shoot him', 'fine him', imprison him,' 'to the army'." (Lynch, 2001, p.81)

Bethell is clear about Rosas being a dictator: "Propaganda was an essential ingredient of Rosismo: a few simple and violent slogans took place of ideology and these permeated the administration and were thrust relentlessly at the public. People were obliged to wear a kind of uniform and to use the federal [Rosas belonged to the Federalist Party] colour, red... Federal uniformity was a measure of quasi-totalitarian pressure... Portraits of Rosas were carried in triumph through the streets and placed upon the altars of the principal churches. Sermons glorified the dictator and extolled the federal cause... This was the system of total government which sustained Rosas in power for over two decades. The majority of people obeyed, some with enthusiasm, others from inertia, many out of fear [Emphasis added]." I hardly believe that every single English speaking historian is biased toward Rosas. --Lecen (talk) 09:13, 3 January 2013 (UTC)

That is good information. It is probably correct to say that non-Argentinian historians are less prone to bias about Rosas' character. So, I see no problem with relying primarily on English-language sources. On the other hand, if there are two or three highly respected Argentinian sources, the article should definitely include them in its References section, and should possibly include those author's assessment of the "was he a dictator" issue (but should probably identify those sources by name, per WP:ATTRIBUTEPOV). --Noleander (talk) 16:36, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
I don't want to risk seeing Cambalachero saying "that Argentine historian you mentioned is anti-Rosas". We would waste time with him claiming that an author is that and I that he isn't. But I can give you one example. Argentine historian Fernando J. Devoto (who has doctorate and is a graduate of the University of Buenos Aires [3]) published a book along with Brazilian historian Boris Fausto (whose works have been published by the University of Cambridge [4]) that compares Brazil and Argentina from 1850 until 2002. The parts pertaining Argentina were written by Devoto and the ones about Brazil by Fausto. It says "...although a part of those elites had shared the exile in Chile and Uruguay, during the dictatorship of Rosas." Source: page 59 of Fausto, Boris; Devoto, Fernando J. (2005) (in Portuguese). Brasil e Argentina: Um ensaio de história comparada (1850–2002) (2nd ed.). São Paulo: Editoria 34. ISBN 978-85-7326-308-4 (there is a Spanish edition published by Sudamericana in 2008). --Lecen (talk) 17:37, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
Noleander, disregarding Argentine sources under the concept that they are "less prone to bias about Rosas' character" is an ad hominem fallacy. Sources should be judged by their quality, not the nationality of the individuals.--MarshalN20 | Talk 17:37, 6 January 2013 (UTC)
I wanted to let you know that Cambalachero has replied in that article talk page. --Lecen (talk) 16:22, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

I wanted to thank you for your effort, and patience, trying to deal with this delicate matter. I'm well aware that it's not easy to get yourself into a troublesome dispute and find the correct path. You suggested that I should create a RfC about the matter. I wonder if it wouldn't be better to open a thread at the Wikipedia:Dispute resolution noticeboard? I'm saying that because, perhaps you might haven't notice, but Cambalachero largely ignored your points and tried to misrepresent facts. Both he and his friend Marshaln20 ignored your remark that "If the majority of mainstream, secondary sources hold a particular view, then that view can be stated in the encyclopedia's voice and need not be attributed. For example: evolution vs. creationism - those are two POVs, but the majority of scientists support evolution, therefore WP:ATTRIBUTEPOV does not apply and "evolution is true" can be (and is) stated in the encyclopedia's voice. WP:ATTRIBUTEPOV only applies when the sources are biased or the POV is held by sources that are in the minority". He also claimed that John Lynch changed his mind about Rosas being a dictator merely because the first edition was called "Argentine dictator" and the second one "Argentine Caudillo", even though the latter treats Rosas as dictator (and a brutal one since it includes an entire article about Rosas' atrocities) from the beginning to the end. Thus, perhaps the Dispute resolution noticeboard may be the appropriate place to end this troubled issue. --Lecen (talk) 18:04, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

Yes, the WP:DRN process is a good path to take. You could do a DRN case, or an RfC. I recommended RfC because (with luck) there may be several editors that reply; and if there is a strong consensus one way, the RfC can be officially closed, and the result is semi-binding. The DRN is a great process also; but it tends to have a single mediator/volunteer that participates, so it is similar to Third Opinion. You could do a DRN case first (they typically last 5 to 10 days); then do an RfC afterwards if the DRN case is not fully resolved. --Noleander (talk) 19:16, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
It's done: Wikipedia:Dispute resolution noticeboard#Juan Manuel de Rosas If you don't mind, could you take a look at it? If I misrepresented something (mainly your opinions) please correct them. And if you're willing to comment or at least share a summary of your views, please do so. --Lecen (talk) 20:26, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

please help agains vandalism[edit]

Hello dear Noleander,

as a user i have a problem, and i hope you can help me. I have uploaded a map, which is made by Professor M. Izady, Columbia University, USA. This map is describing the linguistic composition of middle east. And I have added that to wikipedia (Article: kurd ) or ( kurdish language ), in all languages in wikipedia. But a turkish fascist user, who hates kurds, delated my map. I did “undo” but now my commons picture ( the map ) is removed “becoz of licenzing”. I think, it is done by the same fascist user ( takabeg ):

And now I don’t know what I can do against this vandalism. Here you see my scientifical source and the link to Professor Dr. Izady’s work in Columbia University.

Dealing with troublesome issues[edit]

As you might have noticed already, Cambalachero usually deals with contrary opinions by turning the discussion into a mess. His replies are usually huge blocks of text that almost no one reads. And he is usually followed by his two friends: ‎MarshalN20 and Wee Curry Monster (I'm quite surprised that the latter one has showed up so far). In the end the issue isn't resolved because the other party give up and third parties have no motivation to try understanding the mess. That's what they did in every article related to the Falklands Islands as well as in War of the Pacific. They are three Spanish American nationalists (do not confuse with "patriots").

For the last few years they have been whitewashing their countries' history here at Wikipedia. Since almost no one in here has any true knowledge of Latin America's history, their behavior passes unnoticed. That's how Cambalachero has removed any mention that Juan Perón was a dictator (as usual, he says that "critics called person X a dictator") and also from Juan Manuel de Rosas (do you doubt? See here). Cambalachero has been blocking even my slightest attempts to improve the article[5] such as removing a great picture of Rosas I added[6] and asking it to be deleted from Commons merely because it was I the one who uploaded it.[7] Since you are an experient editor in matters relating to disputes between editors here I ask: what is the appropriate measure I should take? --Lecen (talk) 12:21, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

Feel free to ask Wee Curry Monster yourself if he feels like a "Spanish American", nationalist or otherwise, here. Feel free to ask my "friend" how many times did we actually agree, and how many times we disagreed. Feel free to check my contributions to the article about the War of the Pacific here (all are just trivial maintenance). Feel free to check my comments at the talk page here: only 2, hardly enough to obstruct anything. My first edit in Wikipedia was on April 19, 2008, feel free to check the state of the article about Perón here: as you can see, even by then the lead said exactly the same thing (over the dictatorship thing) that it says nowadays. Feel free to check (or not) Lecen's edit to that article here: 0 edits. Feel free to check how many times did voice his concerns (or not) at the article talk page here: 0 edits. I hope this clarifies things. Cambalachero (talk) 14:57, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

Here is a fine example of why it's impossible to deal with Cambalachero. --Lecen (talk) 19:06, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

I'm getting tired of that nonsense. I've wasted time bringing sources while Cambalachero does not nothing but give his own personal opinion. It can't have the same weight as books. Look at this, for example: [8] A user called Binksternet made a simple and straightfoward comment: "I notice that you did not provide a rebuttal to the notion that Rosas ruled by terror." Now take a look at Cambalachero's answer. It's the same bullshit as ever. No books, no sources, nothing. Just his personal opinion. --Lecen (talk) 18:08, 9 January 2013 (UTC)

I wouldn't despair .. that is how WP works :-) It usually comes out okay eventually. If the DRN case peters out, the next step would be an RfC, which is more or less binding (if officially closed) and thus has more force than a DRN case. --Noleander (talk) 18:10, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
Do you know what will happen if I open a RfC? We'll have several Wdfords showing up saying "I have no idea who was Rosas and I have no patience to read what has been discussed, thus I believe you should simply add both views to the article". Could you also imagine if to write about China, Brazil or Russia the English Wikipedia would have to use sources written in that countries' languages? Because that's what Cambalachero has argued for. --Lecen (talk) 18:22, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
Hah! What did I say?! --Lecen (talk) 18:50, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
Oh sorry but I had to comment, I am according to Lecen a "South American Nationalist". Sorry but he seriously lacks any sense of perspective if he really does believe that.
