Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited The Hunger Games, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Inspiration (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

I have created a proposed addition to WP:WWIN (anyone can comment on this!)[edit]

This is what I wrote for "Wikipedia is not a tyranny". How would you comment about this? Is this reasonable for WP:WWIN? How can I improve on my analogy?

Markup Renders as
====Wikipedia is not a tyranny===

Wikipedia is not the place to have one user with absolute control over every Wikipedian. Wikipedia is a community and all users including admins discuss with each other their ideas. Not all ideas will be agreed on, however, all ideas must not be straightforwardly disagreed on without any evidence saying why such an idea is not reasonable.

TAFI[edit]

Hi Qwertyxp2000: I have reverted the changes you recently made to the week 18 voting section at WT:TAFI. No offense toward you is intended. My intention is to streamline the layout, formatting and processes at the weekly voting, in hopes to encourage more participation. Excessive subsections make the page more complicated than it needs to be, in my opinion, and votes and comments are easily distinguishable in the combined Votes and comments section. Also, I feel that my efforts have significantly contributed to project participation, (Addendum: In addition to other techniques, such as notifying members on their user pages about weekly voting North America1000 09:23, 5 April 2015 (UTC)). If I'm not mistaken, last weeks voting received the most participants in the projects's history. I would like to retain the page's present formatting in hopes for this trend of significantly increased participation to continue into the future. North America1000 09:00, 5 April 2015 (UTC)

Northamerica1000, I realised that I found it difficult to count the votes correctly. Okay, I get what you mean. Oh yes, that seems better than what I was thinking beforehand. Splitting votes in pieces. Oh yes. Qwertyxp2000 (talk) 09:05, 5 April 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for your consideration, which is utmostly appreciated. I noted that you prefer a separate voting and comments section, stating in an edit summary that "Sorry, but segregating votes from comments is better. This is so that, when counting the votes, I do not get confused on the difference between the votes and comments". However, the page's layout is benefiting the majority of participants and editors, and I feel that going back to the old format to benefit one user carries significantly less weight.

You are suspected of sock puppetry, which means that someone suspects you of using multiple Wikipedia accounts for prohibited purposes.

@Berean Hunter:

@Berean Hunter:

My IP(s) is/are blocked and cannot edit on my computer. Please change the block of my IPs to make sure that I am able to edit with my account without being able to log in to my IP(s). Qwertyxp2000 (talk) 08:15, 7 May 2015 (UTC)

@Berean Hunter: Please, I cannot edit on my computer and would want to make good faith edits on it. Please can you change my IPs' blocks to anonblocks, because the sole purpose for blocking the IPs is to prevent sockpuppetry. I haven't made any bad faith edits otherwise. Qwertyxp2000 (talk) 09:28, 7 May 2015 (UTC)

  • You could always look at Wikipedia:Administrator intervention against vandalism/Administrator instructions. Somewhere it says that you could make anonblocks. Qwertyxp2000 (talk) 04:21, 8 May 2015 (UTC) Maybe you have turned only one IP. Because you did autoblocks, what about auto-anonblocks to IPs around me? Qwertyxp2000 (talk) 04:36, 8 May 2015 (UTC)
    • Try again. I've now unblocked the only IP that I blocked relative to your case. If you are still having problems you will need to file an unblock request making sure to copy the info over so a reviewing admin can trace any other applicable blocks in which you may be caught.
       — Berean Hunter (talk) 12:25, 8 May 2015 (UTC)
      • Berean Hunter, the thing is, you did an autoblock as well as a single block to my single IP. Strangely enough, it is now 122.62.47.209 that relates to my computer at present. I don't know but there are countless number of IPs near my area. Qwertyxp2000 (talk) 00:06, 9 May 2015 (UTC)
        • Ah, that was no autoblock...that was a discrete hardblock after I saw you evading and it was after your case was archived. I had not noted the IP in the case so I didn't see it when I reviewed before. It should work now for your account but IP editing is still restricted.

Essay[edit]

At about 1 disruptive edit a week, all reverted within an hour, I don't think the level of vandalism is high enough to be appropriate for protection. The current scheme of reversion works fine. Deryck C. 23:53, 7 May 2015 (UTC)

@Deryck Chan: What about Pending Changes? Both semi-protection and pending changes are used to prevent vandalism but pending changes is used for articles with a low edit rate. Qwertyxp2000 (talk) 23:57, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
The vandalism was all reverted really quickly so I think even PC isn't necessary. Besides PC doesn't reduce anybody's workload. Deryck C. 14:58, 9 May 2015 (UTC)
