Can you be my mentor please[edit]

Please. I have done so many violations on it that I need help fixing my mistakes. People are kinda worried because I'm not suppose to create categories. Maybe you could speak on my behalf. I'm wondering if you what categories are suitable to create and not suitable to create. I'm not banned yet you see; I just can't create categories I do have some mental health issues.

Request your help in Post-it Notes page dispute[edit]

Not exactly sure how to make this help request, but read you would be interested in helping resolve complex disputes.

A few Wikipedia editors over the last few years have been trying to introduce some factual (public 1997 Federal Court case records - AMRON vs 3M - and settlement reached) history onto both the ALAN AMRON and POST-IT NOTE Wikipedia pages.

Seems case law filed states Amron had in fact shown his invention of Press-on Memo in 1973 to 3M executives in 1974, when 3M then claimed to have invented it themselves. Without claiming or saying anything at all, at the very least Wikipedia should make the world aware of these historical facts about the invention of Post-it notes came from the invention of Press-on memo. I have, as you can see from my Talk on that Post-it note page, exhausted my efforts. If you could please read that talk page and suggest the correct wording to post that would allow the historical facts of the case and the settlement, the world will thank you. Post-it notes has a cult like following, and any facts about its origination or leading up to its creation is important. Wikipedia has become the place for one to find historical facts about anyone and or anything. Why not Post-it notes?

Up until today 3M has controlled and manipulated what is being said about who invented Post-it notes. Anyone else who trys gets knocked down.

(by talk page stalker) Steve is very involved at Wikipedia Australia right now and doesn't come around much, so let me respond on his behalf. Let me suggest that you ask for that help at the Teahouse. Another option would be Editor assistance, but I think you're more likely to get what you're looking for at the Teahouse.

Friendly request[edit]

Hello Steven Zhang! I've noticed you around! I'm currently working on a project to bring as much of the wiki up to HTML5 compliance as I can. I've noticed that your signature uses some obsolete and deprecated elements, and I'm wondering if I can get you to update your signature. If you're willing to bring your signature up-to-date, I suggest replacing:

<font face="Verdana">[[User:Steven Zhang|<font color="#078330">Steven</font>]] [[User talk:Steven Zhang|<font color="#2875b0">Zhang</font>]] <sup>[[WP:DRN|<font color="#d67f0f">Help resolve disputes!</font>]]</sup></font>
<span style="font-family:Verdana;">[[User:Steven Zhang|<span style="color:#078330;">Steven</span>]] [[User talk:Steven Zhang|<span style="color:#2875B0;">Zhang</span>]] [[WP:DRN|<sup style="color:#D67F0F;">Help resolve disputes!</sup>]]</span>
which will result in a 243 character long signature with an appearance of: Steven Zhang Help resolve disputes!
compared to your existing 221 character long signature of: Steven Zhang Help resolve disputes!
— Either way. Happy editing! — {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 17:58, 3 November 2014 (UTC)
Done! Steven Zhang Help resolve disputes! 01:13, 29 November 2014 (UTC)

DRN needs assistance[edit]

You are receiving this message because you have listed yourself as a volunteer at the Dispute Resolution Noticeboard.

We have a backlog of cases there which need volunteer attention. If you have time available, please take one or more of these cases.

If you do not intend to take cases or help with the administration of DRN on a regular basis, or if you do not wish to receive further notices of this nature, please remove your username from the volunteer list. If you later decide to resume activities at DRN you may relist your name at that time.

Best regards, TransporterMan 15:52, 8 January 2015 (UTC) (current DRN coordinator)


As one involved in SPIs, can you answer the following questions please.

1. If a checkuser spontaneously blocks a named account as a sock, with no SPI and no other discussion at all, should the blocked account be tagged as "confirmed" or as "suspected"?

2. Should a normal administrator (non-checkuser) blocking a named account ever tag it as "confirmed" when there has been no SPI and no checkuser involvement? (talk) 22:12, 5 March 2015 (UTC)

Just for the record, answered here after being cross-posted to 11 users' talk pages. Regards, TransporterMan (TALK) 21:40, 6 March 2015 (UTC) (talk page stalker)

Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Beh-nam/Archive[edit]

Somewhere I think there needs to be a note stating that User:LouisAragon has been split off from his as he is not related to Beh-nam and has his own SPI Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/LouisAragon/Archive. I've just unblocked him following a BASC appeal and am a bit concerned someone might once again try to link him to Beh-nam. Thanks. Oh, ping me if you reply, ok? Dougweller (talk) 16:23, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

@Dougweller: - not sure if this has already been addressed - but I can strikeout/leave a comment on the Beh-nam SPI case noting the two aren't linked? Steven Zhang Help resolve disputes! 03:32, 27 April 2015 (UTC)
If you would, please. Thanks. Dougweller (talk) 09:21, 27 April 2015 (UTC)
