Retirement of this account[edit]

Hi, Guys. I am retiring from Wikipedia for the time being. My time here has been greatly reduced for over a year now and my enthusiams has been ebbing. Ever since the Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case/Cirt and Jayen466 and Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case/Manipulation of BLPs, my gusto for Wikipedia has gone away completely. I have learned alot in my time here and made some good alliances, and acquaintances. I believe in the project ideas but find the political, social, interpersonal, religious and cultural disputes that rage on Wikipedia to be too much for me to handle. Wikipedia needs some reforms to be made before I can whole heartedly return This may change in time and I might decide to return. If I do, it will be under a new account and will probably be awhile before then. May you participate in good faith editing and Wikilove shine upon you. Long live Jimbo, the Project and most importantly the concepts of Consensus, Neutrality, and Civility.

Sincerely, Bryan The Resident Anthropologist (talk)•(contribs)

Well Wishes for the future[edit]

  • Good luck with everything, Bryan. I was almost taken to Chattanooga from Nashville two weeks ago. Perhaps next time. Best regards, Mathsci (talk) 21:49, 14 November 2011 (UTC)
  • Good luck. I remember you, and saw that I had reverted some whacko who was crazily attacking your page a while back. With over 7,000 edits and no block log to speak of, hopefully you'll return. Doc talk 21:58, 14 November 2011 (UTC)
  • Yes, I hope you, one day, decide to un-retire. But if not, have fun with the rest of the universe. Rich Farmbrough, 04:31, 9 July 2012 (UTC).

Dispute resolution survey[edit]

Dispute Resolution – Survey Invite


Hello ResidentAnthropologist. I am currently conducting a study on the dispute resolution processes on the English Wikipedia, in the hope that the results will help improve these processes in the future. Whether you have used dispute resolution a little or a lot, now we need to know about your experience. The survey takes around five 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 had some activity in dispute resolution over the past year. For more information, please see the associated research page. Steven Zhang DR goes to Wikimania! 11:29, 5 April 2012 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:American Anthropological Association logo.jpg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:American Anthropological Association logo.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Hazard-Bot (talk) 04:21, 21 February 2013 (UTC)
