I manage my talk page with the following guidelines to keep the high volume of posts and 140 active talk page stalkers in some sort of order:

  1. Please start new topics at the bottom of the page, even if it is related to a section above. Otherwise it is difficult to find the posting.
  2. I will reply to your posts on this page to keep threading unless requested or unless it is extremely urgent.
  3. Lately, my activity levels have been unpredictable; it may be a while before I get around to answering posts or emails. If it's urgent, it may be best to try and find someone else if at all possible.
  4. Unlike some other administrators, I generally do mind if you undo my administrative actions without discussing it with me, unless it was an obvious procedural error on my part.
  5. I sometimes close discussions when it is clear that nothing good will come out of them. I reserve the right to do so at my own discretion. I also reserve the right to rollback any further comments on that discussion topic.

hat collector[edit]


I was told that you manage hat collector in the SPI IRC channel. It seems to have stalled, would you mind giving it a reboot? Thanks, Mike VTalk 21:33, 5 February 2015 (UTC)

As I just sent in an email to User:DeltaQuad, we probably need a more long-term solution since I'm not really active on IRC or SPI anymore... but I've given him access to the project so that at least one of the SPI regulars can access it. --Rschen7754 04:26, 7 February 2015 (UTC)
Apparently I have brand new access lol. After hitting a few wrong buttons, i've rebooted it and it's working again. -- DQ (ʞlɐʇ) 06:39, 7 February 2015 (UTC)

Interstate 8 image[edit]

Hello, sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I'm not actually sure what the protocol is for the permission in this situation. I've had it on here for years (7, wow!) and this is the first time I've heard someone questioning it. If you want to nominate it for deletion, that will help with finding out if there's consensus. I have a few other he let me use, so curious what would be the result. I'd say definitely remove it from the article for now. I can probably take a more current image from that same vantage point sometime in the future, but can't guarantee anytime soon. Let me know if that helps, or if you need more info from me. --Happy editing! Nehrams2020 (talkcontrib) 05:38, 11 February 2015 (UTC)

@Nehrams2020: The "proper" way to do it is by having the person who took the picture sending a release to OTRS (see [17] for more info. Unfortunately, I don't think it would survive a deletion request at Commons otherwise. (I could probably take a picture too, but it might take me a few weeks to get down there). --Rschen7754 05:44, 11 February 2015 (UTC)

User:BarkingFish asking for unblock[edit]

Hello Rschen7754. You participated in Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/BarkingFish/Archive. See WP:ANI#User:BarkingFish request for unblock. Maybe you wish to comment there. It's not obvious to me that deciding on an unblock needs any review of confidential information. But perhaps you have specific knowledge. Though your last awareness of this matter may have been in April 2013. Thanks, EdJohnston (talk) 22:07, 22 February 2015 (UTC)

I agree that it should be referred to BASC. Unfortunately, I don't remember much beyond that I was involved somehow in the case, and alerted en.wikinews to the situation. --Rschen7754 22:10, 22 February 2015 (UTC)
BASC is getting tired. There was even a proposal to abolish BASC. Rather than go into a deep investigation, I can see the argument for simply declining the unblock. Can you think of any reason not to? Not sure this is really your issue, but you were kind enough to respond. Thanks, EdJohnston (talk) 22:12, 22 February 2015 (UTC)
I suppose I'm not a fan of unblocking either, but I feel that he should at least have his appeal heard somewhere. --Rschen7754 22:17, 22 February 2015 (UTC)
