Hatnotes[edit]

Hi, I saw you updated the hatnote at Ratio. You used {{hatnote}}; I just wanted to let you know that at WP:HATNOTE there's a list of preformatted and preferred templates for common hatnotes. I've updated the article to use {{other uses}} and {{redirect}}, which makes sure it's consistent with other articles. Have a nice day :) —Noiratsi (talk) 14:19, 23 February 2013 (UTC)

3RR[edit]

Per your comments at Village Pump (policy), I wanted to follow up that I agree with your assessment of the current policy. It is procedurally slanted in favor of the editor introducing the change because the article's stewards must by definition be the first to revert within the meaning of that term in 3RR. That's not to say that Choyoołʼįįhí:Seb az86556 was wrong in saying that edit warring can be caught prior to 3RR, but the brightline that Guy Macon spoke of does indeed favor the initial change. This is interesting because it represents policy contrary to WP:BRD, a widely-cited and widely-followed editorial suggestion. In struggling to come to terms with it myself, I've decided that the central point is that it favors dynamism over staticness.

  • The central idea is that Wikipedia is an evolving encyclopedia and it needs to change to grow. 3RR favors changes to articles.
  • 3RR also works to emphasize intentional changes as the first reversion is often the best way to clear away test edits or edits by those that don't actually care about the content and who have made editorial misjudgments. If the reversion is reverted then the editor clearly intended the edit he made and unless it's blatant vandalism it should be discussed at this point.
  • And of course 3RR distinguishes between arguments involving old pros and those who are less familiar with the rules. An "old pro" will know after his first revert has been reverted that the cards are against him and that it's best to pursue discussion now. This is informally known as the 1RR. If 3RR were balanced against the newly changing editor then we'd have a situation where it would be incumbent upon the new changer to be familiar enough with the rules to practice 1RR, but in the end it's much more likely that a reverting editor will know enough to stick to 1RR than a changing editor who is more likely to be a new inexperienced editor.

So those are my observations. I do agree that 3RR is stacked against BRD and that does bother me a little, but I think in the end that it makes some sense. -Thibbs (talk) 16:06, 1 March 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for undo of a revert due to vandalism[edit]

Wales 30 : England 3[edit]

Thank you Victor. I seem to recollect that you are "a Wales supporter with other loyalties" — a match that will not be forgotten by me. All the best!

Regular and irregular verbs?[edit]

What were you planning to do with this and/or why did you create it in the first place? There are obviously already articles for regular verb and irregular verb, and those are not likely to be deleted. Therefore, the page that you created is an exact duplicate of information, which can be speedily deleted under criterion A10. "Pepper" @ 23:45, 10 April 2013 (UTC)

I envisage that the two specific articles will be replaced by redirects to the combined article, as discussed on one of the talk pages. I'll raise this on both talk pages today. Victor Yus (talk) 06:46, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Summary style[edit]

I believe I was getting in your way when we were both trying to free the Wikipedia:Summary style article from vandalism. Thanks for the catch. Yintan²  09:56, 12 April 2013 (UTC)

Syllabic /n/[edit]

Hi, I have put a little note in Talk about syllabic /n/, and would be glad to discuss how it should be handled in this article. RoachPeter (talk) 10:01, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

IAR[edit]

Just so you know this is not an acceptable application of IAR. Ryan Vesey 20:20, 17 April 2013 (UTC)

Just so you know, it was a joke. (The bit about IAR I mean; he really had no business removing my comment, particularly since he had also commented after the discussion was "closed".) Victor Yus (talk) 20:22, 17 April 2013 (UTC)
I added no messages to the closed discussion. I typed a reply, took a telephone call from my sister, and returned to my computer to find that KumiokoCleanStart had closed the discussion before I could post it.
Conversely, your message is a reply to the closure.
You've disputed my assertion that "closed" means "closed". What, in your view, does it mean? "Open"? —David Levy 20:41, 17 April 2013 (UTC)
It means one person thinks the discussion's done, I suppose. Which doesn't mean others have to share that view. You no doubt know the Wiki laws better than I do, but I can't find any exception to the principle that you don't remove other people's comments, based on a discussion's having been "closed". Anyway, I've replaced the comment outside the closed discussion, so hopefully that will satisfy the bureaucracy. Victor Yus (talk) 06:02, 18 April 2013 (UTC)

Strange phenomenon[edit]

Hi, I happened to notice this valid comment on the phenomenon but alas it may be the norm now. Please add this to that list. Looks like a "sleeper plant" ... History2007 (talk) 16:51, 28 April 2013 (UTC)

Protection Policy[edit]

You took part in a previous discussion on the protection policy talk page about the reference to "uncontroversial" edits. A survey is now in progress on that page in response to a request for comments. You may want to visit that talk page again and provide your input to try to obtain consensus.

Edit Wars[edit]

Hi, Thanks for your attention to WP:EDIT WARRING. FYI, I have disagreed with 2 of your proposed changes, but have agreed that it is not a "bright line rule". All my reasons are in the edit summaries or talk page. Just wanted to say "hi", and to say I'm only looking at content of edits, not the names of people on one side or the other of the discussion.
