Grawp Reversions

Happy New Year!

I was wondering what script you used to revert Grawp's moves, because your script manages to delete the other pages too! :D

The Helpful One 13:25, 1 January 2009 (UTC)

I wish you a Happy New Year, too. I do not use a script, I check the history of the vandal move target and then delete it resp. move the article back first. --Oxymoron83 13:37, 1 January 2009 (UTC)

RE: Thank you very much!

Hi Oxymoron,

It's no problem at all, I just did 6 hours for your talk because people might need to contact you, but I presume you're fine with that! :)

Glad I could help, The Helpful One 10:50, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Thank you again. Since I often deal with IPs and newly registered users, I generally want to have my talk page open. However in consideration of what causes the least collateral and is best for the project, cases of acute message board vandalism or dynamic IPs with a specific target are best handled by protecting the page for 3-6 hours, so this is perfectly fine. --Oxymoron83 11:31, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Headline

Hi, regarding this edit, please be more careful what you revert to. The comment had been vandalised before as can easily be seen from the text. Str1977 (talk) 22:16, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Hi, I reverted the addition of random characters to a revision by a trustable user. If you find earlier vandalism by another user just revert that back. --Oxymoron83 09:58, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

CalPOP

I need to put up some CalPOP pages. You took them down. Can you email me a copy so I can revise it however you want it? lynn@calpop.com —Preceding unsigned comment added by 216.240.130.251 (talkcontribs) 01:19, 6 January 2009

No, I explained that already twice but will gladly repeat it again: Please avoid editing articles related to yourself (WP:COI). Wikipedia is an encyclopedia and can not be used to advertise your company or band. See also WP:BFAQ. --Oxymoron83 12:49, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

Preservation of Rdrs ending in "(disambiguation)"

Glückliches Neujahr, Kollege!
Please don't delete Rdrs like James Humphreys (disambiguation).

  1. They are mandated to be used whenever a Dab page is lk'd from another Dab page, or in any other situation where the lk should not be bypassed bcz the Dab page (and not one of the pages listed on it) is the intended reference, so they are likely to be recreated later.
  2. Once James Humphreys (disambiguation) has existed as a Dab, it gets
    1. listed on search engines (where it is likely to persist after deletion of the Rdr, and followed back to WP) and
    2. referenced on talk pages (even by those who don't know about the use of that format as the title of a Rdr pg),
    3. copied onto infrequently refreshed clone sites where users wanting to see our updatings may copy an old page name there and request that page on WP
    and in all these kinds of cases, the confusion caused by a move is needlessly increased by the broken lks. Thanks,
    --Jerzyt 06:25, 6 January 2009 (UTC)
Hello Jerzy, sorry, I was not aware of Wikipedia:Disambiguation#Links to disambiguation pages. Now I know and will stay away from disambiguation pages. I don't agree to any of your #2 points for this page. --Oxymoron83 12:49, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

Autoprotect?

Hi, since you seem to get a lot of vandalism on your talk page would you like me to enable Auto Protect? Basically if the bot detects vandalism to your talkpage it will automatically protect it for a predetermined period of time. --Chris 12:09, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Yes, this would be nice. Thanks --Oxymoron83 20:30, 20 January 2009 (UTC)
Ok, as you've probably noticed I've enabled it for you talk page, currently it only protects for one hour(if you want me to change that just gimme a yell). Also, in the event that my bot is protecting it and you don't want it protected just remove your talk page from here. Happy Wikiing :) --Chris 00:30, 22 January 2009 (UTC)
Thanks, one hour is fine. --Oxymoron83 14:24, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

Question

Hello, just out of curiousity did you block the user named Majorfooper? I ask because after I reported this user for persistent vandalism, the HBC AIV helperbot7 said you had blocked him indefinitely, but I don't see the block on his/her talk page MrShamrock (talk) 03:32, 12 February 2009 (UTC)

Hello MrShamrock, only the block log is relevant to determine if a user is blocked, a talk page message can be added or removed by anyone. Regards --Oxymoron83 03:40, 12 February 2009 (UTC)
Ahh, okay that explains it, thanks MrShamrock (talk) 03:42, 12 February 2009 (UTC)

You're welcome. They used enough IPs so we know the range earlier next time. --Oxymoron83 05:02, 12 February 2009 (UTC)
That's great. It's usually a pain in the butt and a long night for me when comes back. I might actually get a decent night's sleep tonight now ;) (It's 11:15 PM here) Apparition11 Complaints/Mistakes 05:17, 12 February 2009 (UTC)
I may protect, also temporarily, your userpage if you want; this will keep them away at least from your page. --Oxymoron83 05:22, 12 February 2009 (UTC)
That sounds great. I appreciate it again! Apparition11 Complaints/Mistakes 05:33, 12 February 2009 (UTC)

J.Viewz

Hello,

Our page was deleted - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J.Viewz The reason for the removal was - (A3: Article has no meaningful, substantive content)

Our page included essential information about J.Viewz project, and it was aimed for our fans and curious music lovers who seek for new, innovative music. I find all the information there very meaningful, as it provides info about the members, releases and accomplishments.

Please consider reverting our page.

Many thanks,

undo of sutcliffe

oh I hate it when that happens. I was just undoing it, then went to check changes and wondered why I couldn't see em. Did that once earlier and completely missed the actual vandalism. Sometimes you get an error saying it's been changed and to merge, sometimes not.

I suppose I should just "Undo" but have done that before but sometimes you need to go back farther than just the last edit. I will learn.

Best wishes (and thanks for doing it) SimonTrew (talk) 03:39, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

Oh BTW what does the little very light grey hatched box mean around an entry in history? Does that mean it is marked as vandalism? I had one round one of mine earlier (cos I hadn't properly removed the vandalism, don't matter) is there a "proper" way to mark vandalism? SimonTrew (talk) 03:44, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
These grey boxes only mark the revisions that will be compared when you click the button of the same name, they mark the lines that are already selected by the two radio buttons. Vandalism edits are not marked. --Oxymoron83 03:53, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
Oh right. I've just adjusted my contrast. They are very faint, I probably just never saw 'em before. Thanks. SimonTrew (talk) 03:56, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

IP vandal at Talk:Fred Goodwin

Looks like he's been at this a bit. Edits of the same style from 79.75.132.65 on the 2nd, and 79.75.208.7 on the 1st. HalfShadow 04:40, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

These IPs (at least 79.75.128.0/17) are part of the dynamic Tiscali DSL range. I did a quick check, and although there are other vandalism edits (e. g. 79.75.237.201 (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · edit filter log · WHOIS · RDNS · RBLs · http · block user · block log) might be the same), there are a lot of good IP users that outweigh the moderate vandalism level. A range block would not be reasonable at the moment. --Oxymoron83 04:58, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
I wasn't suggesting that as such, just that he seems to have been doing this for a bit and there might need to be an eye kept on the page since he may not have a static IP. HalfShadow 16:41, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

Heads up

Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I mentioned your name at WP:ANI. Nothing really about you, just pointing out some of the history of the sock who was vandalizing my user page a couple of weeks ago. I just hate mentioning people without them knowing about it. Cheers! Apparition11 Complaints/Mistakes 06:40, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

The discussion has been archived here. I started the thread to warn other admins about someone I dubbed the "Winnipeg Folk Festival vandal". Apparition11 mentioned that this is probably another incarnation of Swamilive. The IP range matches Swami's, but the MO is somewhat different. I have already placed a 1 month rangeblock on 216.26.208.0/20 and am considering blocking 216.211.0.0/17 for a month as well. I got no response on the proposed rangeblock at ANI. Thanks, caknuck ° remains gainfully employed 14:28, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
On that day, I was reverting his usual additions, then he switched to adding that that Winnipeg Folk Festival stuff to my user page. I should've specified how I made the connection better before it was archived, sorry about that. Give me a minute and I'll dig up some diffs to show the connection. Apparition11 Complaints/Mistakes 20:23, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
(Edit) OK, I was somewhat confused about how it exactly went down (my bad memory is obviously getting worse). He started adding that Winnipeg Festival stuff to mainspace first, but I made the connection because this IP started targeting Octopus (one of Swami's usual targets), and had made this edit, which reverted to a version made by a sock of Swami. Creating fake articles on cocktails is another of his hobbies. After I started reverting him, he then started targeting my user page. Sorry for my confusion. Cheers! Apparition11 Complaints/Mistakes 20:42, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
That's about as damning a connection as we could've imagined. You've made a believer out of me, App. Good work. caknuck ° remains gainfully employed 20:59, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
I have placed a 1 month rangeblock on 216.211.0.0/17. Let me know if you have any concerns. caknuck ° remains gainfully employed 21:27, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

If you would've read the information in the bright red box above the edit window on the deleted page, Modenine, it specifically says why. I would recommend that you read before asking silly questions. The information is there for a reason. -- IRP 22:42, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

User:68.56.115.53

Hi, Oxymoron83! It's been a while since we last spoke. I'm here today because I would like to know what the best procedure is with the IP user I mentioned in this thread's title. This user has repeatedly added unverified content in The Land Before Time; circling around a supposed Blu-ray release of the film, which I have not been able to find any verification for. I have asked the user to include a reliable source, but they seemingly refuse to do so. According to the first message on their talkpage, they have added unverified material to other pages, but what bothers me most is the "Blu-ray" section in The Land Before Time. See these links, for examples of what they've said in it: [1] [2] [3] [4] Also, here is what the user included in Tomorrowland: [5], that they received their first message for. Furthermore, in an earlier set of contributions, the IP adds info on an upcoming Blu-ray issue of The Great Mouse Detective, [6] but three edits later, they removed that same section: [7].

I admit it's altogether possible that these edits have been done in good faith, but it seems unusual that they are so persistent in adding unverified content to pages, when they've been asked to include reliable sources with what they provide. Because of this, I thought that the best measure to take was to report them at AIV, but it seems like nobody there wants to deal with this situation. After that, you were the first administrator with experience in dealing with vandals and/or misguided users, who came to mind, so I came to consult you on the matter. Should I let this case go, or should more serious measures be taken? Mess around with the guy in shades all you like - don't mess around with the girl in gloves! (talk) 23:22, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

Alliance of Free Democrats (SZDSZ)

You reverted an edit I made to the page for the Hungarian political party Alliance of Free Democrats (SZDSZ). Just to clarify the matter for you, I deleted the "Politics of Israel" section from the page as this is about a Hungarian political party and does not relate in any way to Israel, and such a section on the page can only be interpreted as satire, which has no place in Wikipedia. I am assuming you did this in good faith as you were trying to prevent a case of perceived vandalism. However, this page has a history of vandalism especially relating to Israel, Jews and homosexuals. In the future, it would be greatly appreciated if you kept this in mind as we try to keep this article up to the standards of Wikipedia. Thank you very much for your understanding.Dsu318 (talk) 14:34, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

Hi Dsu318, you blanked the Template:Politics of Israel, and it can not be seen from that edit which article you are referring to. If you want to remove a template from an article, you have delete the line that transcludes this template there, blanking the template will remove it from all articles. Regards --Oxymoron83 14:45, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

Thank you very much for your clarification. I did not realize that when I deleted that, I deleted it on all pages. Yikes! I won't do that again. I reverted the page to a previous un-vandalized form with the proper "Politics of Hungary" template. Do keep an eye on this page if you find the time. Thanks!Dsu318 (talk) 15:00, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

I've added the page to my watchlist. Happy editing! --Oxymoron83 15:09, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

Block on IP Address User:194.83.232.2

This IP Adress is for Derby City Council, as you may have noticed. The block runs all the way to the HQ of the Council itself, and then runs through each school. However, my school which is St Benedict Catholic School and Performing Arts College and many people who work at the council are not happy with the block. I would like to request that I take charge of this IP address and keep watch. I would also like to request the unblocking for Derby's sake. I would also warn you when a permanent block would needed to be put in. Thanks. Eurovision 2009 and 2010Sasha SonSakis Rouvas 16:11, 13 July 2009 (UTC)

hi, I nominated Ergogenic aid for speedy deletion.

Best wishes,Rich (talk) 04:21, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

There must be some mistake....

You sent me a message saying that a recent edit of mine removed some portion from the substance of the article "Body Cavity Search." I can tell you that I never edited an article (I have posted questions on some comment pages), and was not even aware there was a Wikipedia article "Body Cavity Search."

My concern is that some idiot has somehow poached my identity on Wikipedia. Can you confirm it was in fact my identity that made the changes you complain of?

thanks.

Hi Bill, you're using dynamic IP addresses, my warning from Nov. 2007 at an IP's talk page was directed at the person who used this address at that time. I did not leave any warning at your account's talk page (which belongs to you personally). --Oxymoron83 14:55, 19 October 2009 (UTC)

Ah, my apologies for my "vandalism" I'm in the middle of homework assignment and may have gotten carried away. I'm supposed to learn about Wikipedia and how to edit it and was unaware of the sandbox tool you mentioned in your last message. Again thank you and sorry for any inconvenience.

Request to unprotect Talk page

Hi Oxymoron83

On 2008-05-29 you protected the Talk page for User:Kyklops. This User is now active again - see diff. His or her Talk page does not exist and cannot be activated because of some form of protection. I request that you re-activate the Talk page, or at least remove the protection. Thanks in anticipation. Dolphin51 (talk) 23:46, 18 October 2009 (UTC)

Hi Dolphin51, this user's talk and user pages have been protected when this account name belonged to some boring vandal.

Cold War

From what I can determine, you seem to be the person to turn to regarding proposed changes to the topic "Cold War."

Please see my user page Waterfox1 for some professional background and links.

I now have time to contribute to the topic, in particular to the rather lean section titled "Legacy".

Please advise on how I can help and interface, and what are the current protocols.

Hi Waterfox, you can be bold and update the article. If you think your changes might be controversial, you can propose them on the article's talk page. I've added some useful links to your talk page. Regards --Oxymoron83 11:34, 14 January 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for the useful links, about which I am refreshing and updating myself.

Merges and talk pages

Would you consider the talk pages of merged articles (containing nothing but a project template) to qualify for speedy deletion? I'm looking at things like Talk:Batmobile (Batman: The Animated Series)... 98.248.32.44 (talk) 07:25, 17 January 2010 (UTC)

I would consider such pages for speedy deletion, but I know there are other editors who want to keep such pages even if no other pages link to it, usually redirecting it to the target article's talk page. --Oxymoron83 07:35, 17 January 2010 (UTC)

Remove article

Hi Oxymoron

I'm in need of your help. I need to remove the "Leontina Nunes da Silva" from "Talk:Leontina Nunes da Silva" to "Article:Leontina Nunes da Silva". You could help me?—Preceding unsigned comment added by 187.22.194.155 (talk)

Hi, thank you for your contributions. If you want to start new articles, the better way would be to create an account, or, if you do not wish to create one, propose a new article. Regards, --Oxymoron83 10:17, 9 February 2010 (UTC)

thanks for moving a certain page so fast!

around the moment i put up the flag for speedy deleation of a page created by Technogreek43 you moved it to his user page! Wow fast work! I dont quite understand why such a page existed for so long...since obviously it serves no encyclopedic purpose whatsoever. But thanks for your speedy effort! Evenios (talk) 06:26, 21 March 2010 (UTC)

This page was Technogreek43's actual userpage, moved to that other title some minutes before. --Oxymoron83 06:29, 21 March 2010 (UTC)

The Pedestrian Council of Australia

Hi, my customer is Harold Scruby from The Pedestrian Council of Australia. He has contacted me as he noticed the article on Wikipedia about The Pedestrian Council was deleted. -> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pedestrian_Council_of_Australia

I see that the reason was 'copyright infringement'... as I don't know what was on the page before I'm not sure what the copyright infingement was. Anyway he has asked me to try and get an article going again on Wikipedia and has sent me the information below he would like on the page. Wikipedia suggests contacting you about this as you appear to be the 'deleting administrator' .. am I okay to just start the article again? Many thanks Dylan


The Pedestrian Council of Australia Limited is an Incorporated (Public) Company, limited by guarantee. It is a non-profit organisation whose objectives, as stated in its Memorandum of Association are: 1. the continual improvement of pedestrian safety, amenity and access; 2. the promotion of walking as a legitimate transport mode and an important, healthy, social activity; 3. the encouragement of the inclusion of pedestrian safety, amenity and access provisions in all urban and transport planning; 4. the enhancement of community health and welfare and particularly the enhancement of the health and welfare of those members of the community who are aged, infirm, disabled, young, socially disadvantaged, tourists or included in any other special interest group or group of persons under any kind of handicap or disability; and 5. research (including experiments and surveys and their publication) into all aspects of the objects set out in 1, 2, 3 and 4.

A Pedestrian is defined as any person wishing to travel by foot, wheelchair or authorised electric scooter, throughout the community. Membership of the Pedestrian Council of Australia Limited is by invitation of the Board of Directors to individuals and institutions having interests or concerns of like nature to those of the PCA.

The PCA's role is essentially one of education, advocacy and the promotion of a culture of concern and care within the whole community for the rights and responsibilities of pedestrians. Provision and infrastructure to meet the expectations of such a concerned community is properly the responsibility of the land use, transport and road authorities.

Deleted: The Word Alive's band page

reconsider your deletion of that band page... the band is extremely significant in the metal music scene, their current lead singer use to be in bands such as greeley estates, in fear and faith, and emarosa, (all bands you would know of if you are currently affiliated in the metal scene), their old lead singer was in blessthefall, and is now in escape the fate, (two very notable bands). They have released a very successful E.P and are releasing a full length album in august, they are signed to fearless records... have legions of fans. here is a link to a band that has no official album out, is of the same genre and has a wiki page... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abandon_All_Ships. Your deletion was very inconsistent. I ask you to please do your homework before you delete a page that you have no clue about.

nope!

didnt edit that WWZ page mate, no one with access to this pc woul dhave either , wrong I.P

Wiki article on William Sowders

The Wiki article on William Sowders was deleted in 2008. The main objection, as I understand it, was the lack of external sources to support his ministry and its impact. I submit the following websites to meet that concern.

Are these sufficient to reactivate the William Sowders article?

Notification of pending suspension of administrative permissions due to inactivity

Following a community discussion in June 2011, consensus was reached to provisionally suspend the administrative permissions of users who have been inactive for one year (i.e. administrators who have not made any edits or logged actions in over one year). As a result of this discussion, your administrative permissions will be removed pending your return if you do not return to activity within the next month. If you wish to have these permissions reinstated should this occur, 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

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 if you are inactive for a continuous three year period, you will be unable to request return of the administrative user right. This includes inactive time prior to your desysopping if you were desysopped for inactivity and inactive time prior to the change in policy. Inactivity is defined as the absence of edits or logged actions. Until such time as you have been inactive for three years, you may request return of the tools at the bureaucrats' noticeboard. After you have been inactive for three years, you may seek return of the tools only through WP:RFA. Thank you. MBisanz talk 00:20, 4 December 2012 (UTC)
