Hello, I'm Sophus Bie. I wanted to let you know that I undid one or more of your recent contributions to SKA Saint Petersburg because it didn't appear constructive. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks! Sophus Bie (talk) 19:42, 29 March 2013 (UTC)

Invasive arguta follow up[edit]

Hi Sophus Bie, thanks for your replies on this subject. Regarding what you wrote:

"If calling the plant "invasive" is not at all statistically supported, you can delete the section. Removing content is easily reversed, so if anyone disagrees, they can undo your removal."

This is exactly the situation we're in. Removing, re-posting, removing, re-posting. Is there no other way to resolve these contentions? Thank you. Iagohale (talk) 21:45, 29 March 2013 (UTC)

Human rights violations during the Syrian civil war[edit]

One-sided Claims Of Human Rights Violations Against The Syrian Government

I have just added some reasonable comments (and corrections) to counter the over-the-top and one-sided text in the "Human rights violations during the Syrian civil war" section. And within seconds my comments were deleted - "wow"! I pointed out that the one links lead to something called the "Women’s Media Center" and not as stated to Amnesty International. Also, some of the incidents reported were "undated allegations, labeled unverified, from a Palestinian news outlet". Given this, on what grounds were my adjustments removed? 78.147.85.14 (talk) 13:50, 30 March 2013 (UTC)

OK, having lost track of time, your banning did seem to take seconds. That said, I do not just "believe" the article was biased - it is biased. So, while it might leave a VERY short article, are you really saying that one-sided text can be deleted? 78.147.85.14 (talk) 16:43, 30 March 2013 (UTC)

Human rights violations during the Syrian civil war (follow up remark)[edit]

I do not just "believe" the article was biased - it is biased. So much so that it reads like a US State Department PR statement. Yet it appears that making counter-balancing edits is not allowed? 78.147.88.158 (talk) 12:58, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

  Thank you for welcoming me. I am considering creating an account on Wikipedia, as you suggested. If I did so, would there be any way to “claim” my IP edits? (i.e., make it so that they are attributed under the new name in Edit History).
  I would also like you to take a look at this article: Comparison of CRT, LCD, Plasma, and OLED. I think it should look more like this: [1] (lines starting with a capital letter and ending with a period, for proper grammar, thus making it easier to see where each comment begins/ends within a cell on the table). However, 174.118.142.187 (who recently created the table) thinks otherwise; since I really don't want to cause an edit-war on the issue, I thought I would get the opinion of an established Wikipedia editor. If it makes any difference, Comparison of graphics file formats is an example of what I'd like to do with the page (color coded, thin table, but also using proper grammar, particularly in the “application” column).
76.6.164.233 (talk) 13:26, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

You're welcome! Sadly, there is not a way to transfer user contributions between accounts, but you can put this userbox
IP This user's IP is 172.16.254.1.

on your userpage to let people know those edits were yours, by typing {{user IP|IP ADDRESS GOES HERE}}. That's what I did for my pre-account edits, until my IP address changed when I moved. If you do decide to stick around, some good places for getting quick answers to questions are WP:Teahouse and WP:Help Desk. I also noticed that you've been doing copyediting, so you might enjoy joining the WP:WikiProject Guild of Copy Editors. If you do decide to get an account, send me a message so that I can connect the name with the number!

I agree with you that capitalization on each line and periods looks better, and I like the formatting in Comparison of graphics file formats better as well, but Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style/Tables disagrees with us both. (Oh well.) Sophus Bie (talk) 09:27, 9 April 2013 (UTC)
  I have finally created an account on Wikipedia — I thought I would let you know.  Also, 174.118.142.187 and I have reached a level of agreement on the Comparison of CRT, LCD, Plasma, and OLED page, and the new table is filling out nicely.

Butoh edit[edit]

Hi,

I'm new to wikipedia editing and just wanted to add the information on Ken Mai's contribution to a recent music video to the article about butoh.

It was not meant to be advetising, but if the link to the actual video makes it that then feel free to edit it out. Anyhow, I am not a bot. If this okay, can you please undo the edit you did?

Best wishes,

Denny Fitch[edit]

I'm sorry you feel hurt. I was looking at it from Mrs Fitch's point of view. She had not edited the article, or apparently thought of doing so, and she came to the Help desk asking for help. You suggested she might fix it herself, and then gave her five lines of daunting restrictions on doing so. I did not think that was very friendly or helpful, and said so, to her. I do't bear you any ill-will, and I hope you don't me. --ColinFine (talk) 09:04, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

Unfortunately, for the first time in GOCE history, the number of articles in the backlog has actually gone up during this drive. While all participants are currently doing a fine job, we just don't have as many of them as we have had in the past. We have over 500 editors on our mailing list, but only 18 editors who have done a copy edit for the drive. If you're receiving this newsletter, it's because you have an interest in copy editing.

Telecommunication hoax concern in the Philippines[edit]

Hi Sophus Bie, thanks again for the Telecommunication Barnstar that you've award to me. I guess I need your help though, this user continues to input vandalised things, and of course, I've proposed a deletion for some of the articles he/she contributed (like DWNP, DYPE, DYIL, DYRV, and most notably, my suspected hoax article DXAJ). I keep removing his edits by the use of manual editing since my Twinkle tool restricted in my office where I've worked for. My concerned as well is, that user continues to vandalized WIkipedia by using IP addresses, try to look for the History of those articles that I've linked inside the parenthesis, and also look for this one and another one. I keep removing his contributions because this is clearly a vandalism and a hoax. Please review it properly to avoid an abusive use of this site just to trick others. Thanks and cheers. Hamham31Heke!KushKush! 01:59, 24 August 2013 (UTC)

Hey, Hamham! Sorry it's taken me so long to reply; I've caught the flu, which has put me out of commission for a bit. I'll watch the articles you've listed, but I'm afraid I know very little about radio, so I probably wouldn't recognize vandalism when I saw it.
However, if they are the IP vandal on the pages you linked, then there is a quick solution to stop their vandalism. Their actions count as sock puppeting, and thus you can report the evidence to Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations. (Check out Wikipedia:Signs of sock puppetry to see what sort of evidence you'd want to compile.) If they're found to be using IPs for shenanigans, then their account and any IP addresses they are misusing will be blocked, and furthermore, the user themselves will be banned.
I hope this helps! Sophus Bie (talk) 08:54, 30 August 2013 (UTC)
That's OK, and I'm glad you've recovered. Anyway, thanks for the help. Hamham31Heke!KushKush! 23:58, 30 August 2013 (UTC)

We need a new Wikipedia:References Team or a BACKLOG OF THE WEEK[edit]

Hello Sophus Bie - thank you very much for your answer. You often fight off the vandal hordes, as I do repairing pages with citation errors. If I didn't - there would be a large backlog in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting and in Category:Pages with missing references list as in Category:Pages with broken reference names (more than 1500 yesterday). But it is impossible to work it alone. Do you know how to do a "Blitz" (excuse the comparision) to find willing editors to work on it. It is much more easier to repair references if you do it one hour, one day or one week ago after the errors were made instead of months and years after the error was done. Very, very difficult to find these errors.

See example:

Cite error: The named reference bx0121 was invoked but never defined

Only with WikiBlame Search it is possible to find and repair such errors.

The December blitz ran from December 8–14. The theme for this blitz was articles tied in some way to religion. Seven editors knocked out 20 articles over the course of the week. Our next blitz will be in February, with a theme to be determined. Feel free to make theme suggestions at the Guild talk page!

The January 2014 Backlog elimination drive is a month-long effort to reduce the size of the copy edit backlog. The drive begins on January 1 at 00:00 (UTC) and ends on January 31 at 23:59 (UTC). Our goals are to copy edit all articles tagged in October and November 2012 and complete all requests placed before the end of 2013. Barnstars will be awarded to anyone who copy edits at least one article, and special awards will be given to the top five in the following categories: "Number of articles", "Number of words", "Number of articles of over 5,000 words", "Number of articles tagged in October and November 2012", and "Longest article". We hope to see you there!

Drive: Thanks to everyone who participated in November's Backlog Elimination Drive. Of the 43 people who signed up for this drive, 26 copy edited at least one article. Final results, including barnstars awarded, are available here.

Progress report: The November Drive removed 26 requests from the Requests page and 509 articles from the {{copy edit}} backlog. We copy edited 83 articles tagged in the target months; July, August, and September 2013. Together with tag removals from articles unsuitable for copy editing, we eliminated July 2013 from the backlog and reduced August and September's tags to 61 and 70 respectively. As of 01:01, 1 December 2014 (UTC), the backlog stood at 1,974 articles, dipping below 2,000 for the first time in the Guild's history (see graph at right). Well done everyone!

Blitz: The December Blitz will run from December 14–20 and will focus on articles related to Religion, in recognition of this month's religious holidays in much of the English-speaking world. Awards will be given out to everyone who copy edits at least one of the target articles. Sign up here!

Election time again: The election of coordinators to serve from 1 January to 30 June 2015 is now underway.
