User talk:Shoemaker's Holiday

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Goodbye, Wikipedia. The corruption of Arbcom, as amply set out in the recent e-mail exchange I had with them, where promises were made, broken, and they literally used me being upset at their actions as an excuse to refuse to actually review those actions. Further, gross favouritism - consider cases like GianoII, who knows one of the Arbcom, and so was protected for years, versus me making a statement that requires some straining to see as a violation in the first place, and getting a block of the full length and a nasty message. Evidently, if you do what they explicitly permit you to do in their decision, then politely comment when someone tries to use your work in a gambit, that's blockable.

I had been gone for five months. I had only returned for a week. Arbcom has been corrupt at the least since the Matthew Hoffman case - the one so egregious they were forced, eventually, to make a public statement admitting wrongdoing. They have clearly learned nothing.

Wikipedia is not worth my or your time. Shoemaker's Holiday talk 14:19, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Redaktor Wikipedia 600px.png

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, will be commencing a two-month trial at approximately 23:00, 2010 June 15 (UTC).

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under flagged protection. Flagged protection is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 21:15, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

Hi, just standing in for seresin, doing the Signpost Features and admins page this week. I can't see how to search for the end of last month's archives. I presume there have been no promotions or demotions over the past week. Thx. Tony (talk) 13:42, 4 July 2010 (UTC)

competition[edit]

Hi there. Im looking to have a writing competition held in September and I am looking for a couple people to help me with their thoughts and ideas. I have had some input on the competition and have had several chats with people outside the wikipedia talk pages and I have decided to keep the competition limited to the following restraints:

1. Judges and competitors are separate and there has to be a finite list of them.

2. The competition should range from a few days to no more than 2 weeks, depending on the theme. Not a year long competition and not multiple stages.

3. The theme will be either creating ONE new article, expanding a stub, illustrating a large article with no pictures, editing an article in crisis or something similar to these ideas. If its successful we can have more competitions with other themes.

4. My general idea (but this needs serious development) is to have each article judged two or three times. The top ten are then announced as finalists and every judge then reviews those articles and the top three are announced.

4. Simple is good. Decide theme, decide rules, find people, define judges, define scoring criteria, assign topic or stub or whatever, come up with a way to discourage other users from working on the page (by far most difficult part requiring a lot of ingenuity and good ideas). Judge. Sounds simpler than it really is doesn´t it?

5. Keep it informal, simple and fun.

6. Find a name for it.

Wanna help me with this? I´ll set up a new page and hope to build a team of three people to make this happen.

Main page appearance[edit]

Hello! This is a note to let the main editors of the file File:01 - Vivaldi Spring mvt 1 Allegro - John Harrison violin.ogg know that it will be appearing as the main page featured article on January 15, 2011 due to a special occasion, the tenth anniversary of Wikipedia. It will be featured as part of the today's featured sounds, with the article The Four Seasons (Vivaldi).

You can view the TFA blurb at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/January 15, 2011. If you think it is necessary to change the main date, it can be requested with the featured article director, Raul654 (talk · contribs). If the previous blurb needs tweaking, you might change it—following the instructions of the suggested formatting. If the article or file need any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page. Thanks TbhotchTalk and C. 02:13, 14 January 2011 (UTC)

Community input required: lowering delist bar at FPC[edit]

You are receiving this because of your current or past association with the Featured Pictures project. Following on from several cases where closers did not observe the prescribed minimum votes required for a delisting, there is now a motion to entirely dismiss the requirement for a minimum. Please participate in the discussion as wide-ranging changes may arise.

Parody music[edit]

As far as I know, this is NOT an article you have ever edited, or have any particular interest in (although it does, naturally, mention Sir Arthur Sullivan). Someone wants to hijack it for academic musical theory as opposed to general interest (at least that is my impression) and s/he and I have a dispute going. I would especially appreciate your opinion. Perhaps you will see in his argument something I am missing. --Soundofmusicals (talk) 13:25, 31 January 2012 (UTC)

WP:FOUR RFC[edit]

There are two WP:RFCs at WP:FOUR. The first is to conflate issues so as to keep people from expressing meaningful opinions. The second, by me, is claimed to be less than neutral by proponents of the first. Please look at the second one, which I think is much better.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 07:32, 20 August 2013 (UTC)
