2014 Isla Vista massacre[edit]

For your information, I looked for the topic in the search engine, but nobody had made a page about it. So, I created the first page on the topic. You probably created a second page while I was making the ORIGINAL page. Thus, it's your fault that a second page existed. Luckily, someone had the good sense to redirect it to my page. - Seislund — Preceding unsigned comment added by Seislund (talkcontribs) 19:29, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

Alfred Gaynor[edit]

Hello. Category:American prisoners sentenced to life imprisonment is a subcategory of Category:American prisoners and detainees, and Alfred Gaynor was sentenced strictly to life imprisonment. Charles Manson, on the other hand, had a long criminal history that included time served in correctional facilities prior to becoming a serial murderer, and therefore there was a need to represent that period of his history as well. In most cases, however, we try to only include the most fine tuned category.Hoops gza (talk) 02:23, 14 March 2014 (UTC)

March 2014[edit]

Information icon Hello. Your recent edit to List of serial killers in the United States appears to have added the name of a non-notable entity to a list that normally includes only notable entries. In general, a person or organization added to a list should have a pre-existing article before being added to most lists. If you wish to create such an article, please first confirm that the subject qualifies for a separate, stand-alone article according to Wikipedia's notability guideline. Thank you. ☾Loriendrew☽ (talk) 23:42, 15 March 2014 (UTC)

Serial killer list[edit]

Hello, WikiOriginal-9. From looking at your edit history it has come to my attention that you are probably interested in creating many new articles on serial killers (amongst other killers). I am working on redesigning the List of serial killers in the United States. You can see my work on it thusfar here: User:Magnoliasouth/sandbox (just scroll down. Although this is actually someone else's sandbox, I could copy and paste it to my own sandbox if I so wish). Would you be interested in working on creating this list? The list can only contain people with articles.Hoops gza (talk) 21:56, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

License tagging for File:Fhfg.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Fhfg.png. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information.

To add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia. For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions.

murderpedia[edit]

While I appreciate the effort re Wolfgang Schmidt, I don't think murderpedia can be considered a reliable source. Can you consider rewriting based on other more direct sources? The article was deleted last time for lack of sourcing and all sources I found were in German.--Obi-Wan Kenobi (talk) 17:50, 30 March 2014 (UTC)

Watchlist[edit]

Hello, WikiOriginal-9. I was just wondering, are you familiar with how your watchlist works? I am asking for your own good (I am familiar with how it works).Hoops gza (talk) 01:04, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

What's the problem?WikiOriginal-9 (talk)

There's no problem at all, I just was not sure if you were familiar with it for your own use. Sorry for the confusing wording. For instance, your inclusion of an image on Velma Barfield was reverted by an IP without an explanation given in the edit summary, so I reverted it back. For instance, if you are so inclined, you could have all of the pages of murderers on your watchlist.Hoops gza (talk) 01:19, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

Ways to improve George Rice (American football)[edit]

Hi, I'm Teblick. WikiOriginal-9, thanks for creating George Rice (American football)!

I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix. You need to flesh out this article with more information about George Rice. Consider the following as some possibilities:

Additional information might be available, but these turned up in a quick search. I think Your subject deserves to have more told about him.

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Hugh Wolfe.jpeg[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Hugh Wolfe.jpeg, requesting that it be deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under two or more of the criteria for speedy deletion, by which articles can be deleted at any time, without discussion. If the page meets any of these strictly-defined criteria, then it may be soon be deleted by an administrator. The reasons it has been tagged are:

  • The image is an unused redundant copy (all pixels the same or scaled down) of an image in the same file format, which is on Wikipedia (not on Commons), and all inward links have been updated. (See section F1 of the criteria for speedy deletion.)
  • The image appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. (See section F9 of the criteria for speedy deletion.) For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted images or text borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Stefan2 (talk) 10:00, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Wolfe Hugh.jpeg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Wolfe Hugh.jpeg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 10:00, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Jack Butler (American football).jpg[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Jack Butler (American football).jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a non-free file with a clearly invalid licensing tag; or it otherwise fails some part of the non-free content criteria. If you can find a valid tag that expresses why the file can be used under the fair use guidelines, please replace the current tag with that tag. If no such tag exists, please add the {{Non-free fair use}} tag, along with a brief explanation of why this constitutes fair use of the file. If the file has been deleted, you can re-upload it, but please ensure you place the correct tag on it.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay.

NFL free agent vs. retired?[edit]

Hey, WO, I just saw your edits to the Earl Everett article. When we're cleaning up the infobox after an end-of-career "free agency" and converting the article to the "retired" version, we delete the "currentteam" and "status" parameters from the infobox, and remove any reference to "free agent" from the lead. The "finalteam" and "finalyear" parameters should also be added. The "currentnumber" parameter becomes "number" and all jersey numbers worn may be added. Cheers. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 01:44, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

Free agent[edit]

I understand what you are saying with the free agent thing, but if you don't include it in the infobox or intro it looks like the player is retired.--Yankees10 01:46, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, i've noticed it too. It's pretty bad. But i'd leave the guys who played last year or were just cut this year. Anytime before that I wouldn't have a problem with you changing.--Yankees10 02:07, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
Yeah I agree with 2012.--Yankees10 02:16, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
Yeah unfortunately there is still a bunch of guys that played in the UFL thats pages aren't updated, even though the leagues been gone for 2 years now. It's bad.--Yankees10 03:19, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Stephen Jones (Football Player) and Stephen Jones (Canadian football)[edit]

Dear WikiOriginal-9: I see that you have made an article about football player Stephen Jones. You likely didn't notice that there was a draft already under development about this fellow, which I have linked above. Your article is a little short on info and sources. Would you consider using some of the information and sources in the draft to improve the article? If so, please feel free to move it; I can help with the attribution (to credit the original editor) afterwards if necessary. —Anne Delong (talk) 21:51, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

Response to your question[edit]

At Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Stern review, you asked "Why was this account blocked?" In doing so, you have (likely inadvertently) walked into one of the stranger cases at Wikipedia. Stern review (talk · contribs) was originally blocked in December 2013 because of the spate of single-line, poorly sourced articles created by this user and all of the sockpuppet accounts xe created. Since then, every few days, a new spate of similar one-line poorly sourced articles (always about moth species) appears, and a new group of users is added to the list of sockpuppets. The articles themselves are not really the issue. The issue is the user's refusal to abide by Wikipedia policies and continued creation of new accounts to evade the original block.

DNB[edit]

I want to remind you that our rules about plagiarism say that all material quoted or copied from another source must be indicated exactly -- when you copy something from the DNB you need to indicate by quotation marks or some other means exactly what part of it is quoted--the copyright tag by itself is not suficient. --otherwise, when people make changes how will they know? (And I remind you that there is a new edition, available easily in any UK library and most large US libraries; even for older figures, there is often new information. DGG ( talk ) 05:42, 5 October 2014 (UTC)

Well, its not the exact same and I haven't seen anyone else put quotes. I don't have a subscription for ONDB. WikiOriginal-9 (talk) 15:21, 5 October 2014 (UTC)
Most of what is necessary to a successful DNB conversion is covered in detail on the page Wikipedia:WikiProject Dictionary of National Biography/Walkthrough. That was put up three years ago. A more recent discussion is at User talk:Charles Matthews/Archive 39#DNB stuff.
Matthew Skinner is mentioned there by User:Moonriddengirl, who for these purposes should be treated as fairly authoritative, given her role. What comes out there is that (a) for conformity with the plagiarism guideline, inline referencing is considered sufficient; (b) it is not entirely clear it is necessary.
To sum up, not everyone likes DNB conversion, but the WikiProject guidelines seem fairly close to satisfying the policy requirements. Inline referencing is good practice anyway, and can be recommended.
I can add that I'm putting together a package of fact-checking measures, in relation to some discussions Andrew Gray and I have been having with the ODNB. Emphasis in the WikiProject is likely to turn towards more explicit logging of checking measures. Charles Matthews (talk) 15:38, 5 October 2014 (UTC)

Marysville shooting[edit]

What do you think of helping me to get that article merged with Marysville, Washington?

Either that or clarify that any shooting that has more than local coverage qualifies. I think the merge is better but am willing to go for a clarification and wide acceptance of any killing, if that is the conclusion. However, a wishy washy no conclusion is bad.

Jamaat-e-Islami[edit]

Actually I was going to paste it on the old ambugation page, and blank and redirect Jamaat-e-Islami (historic). How does that sound? --BoogaLouie (talk) 18:39, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
Adding the see Jamaat-e-Islami (disambiguation) seems kind of redundant since there is a Groups associated with Jamaat-e-Islami section right below the lede.

Surname pages[edit]

When you create a surname page, please remember to include the language of the surname when possible. Also, it should be formatted "Notable people with this surname include:" in order to distinguish it from a disambiguation page. Thanks. - Hoops gza (talk) 04:14, 16 November 2014 (UTC)

Could you please tell me how you know that Supernaw is English? - Hoops gza (talk) 04:28, 16 November 2014 (UTC)

I use this site usually: [2]. Click on family origin. I usually google "___ name origin" to see if there are other interesting results as well. - Hoops gza (talk) 16:50, 16 November 2014 (UTC)

You're still forgetting to add the language to new surname pages which you create. Don't worry about your old pages, I will go back through those and add the languages to them. - Hoops gza (talk) 21:11, 17 November 2014 (UTC)

Yes, I see that. Don't worry about the languages on those old ones, I will amend those pages. However, when you create new pages, please try your best to find out the language. - Hoops gza (talk) 22:34, 17 November 2014 (UTC)

Where did you learn that Kosin (name) is German? - Hoops gza (talk) 22:39, 17 November 2014 (UTC)

Please take your time more with these things because you're making a lot of mistakes. If you read at the top of the page, it indicates that the name is of Jewish origin. Just because a surname seems to come primarily from Germany is not proof positive that the surname is of German linguistic origin. It often is German, but not in this case, this is Jewish. - Hoops gza (talk) 22:44, 17 November 2014 (UTC)

Well, I'll admit that this one is hard to tell. Perhaps it would be best if we left it alone. - Hoops gza (talk) 22:49, 17 November 2014 (UTC)

For your information, a page which you created, Zungu (surname) is now located at Zungu. Regards, - Hoops gza (talk) 18:51, 18 November 2014 (UTC)

I've noticed that you do not create redirects to a person when there is only one person on Wikipedia with a certain surname. Why is that? You're not really obliged to do it (I think), but it is helpful. - Hoops gza (talk) 21:13, 20 November 2014 (UTC)

Yes, this is precisely the case. Of course, there are occasionally cases where a person is well known by their surname, but we already have most of those cases resolved on Wikipedia. - Hoops gza (talk) 21:20, 20 November 2014 (UTC)

Yes, I would redirect them if I were you. - Hoops gza (talk) 17:53, 22 November 2014 (UTC)

Notables still must have sources[edit]

I just cleaned up a pair of entries related to Montclair High School (New Jersey) and an associated list for the community's high school, where you added a notable without a source. At the top of my watchlist are other recent edits of yours for Hackensack, New Jersey and Paramus Catholic High School adding other notables without sources. This is not acceptable from an experienced editor like you. You used a source to establish the connection and that source should be added to the article to support the connection. WP:LISTPEOPLE is clear that notables in such lists need reliable and verifiable sources supporting a connection to the place or school. Please make sure to add the sources for these latest entries and to add the sources going forward. Further such unsourced entries may be removed or treated as vandalism.

Las Vegas Outlaws[edit]

Dealing with existing articles[edit]

It looks as if you created Todd Davis (American football) and then overwrote the existing Todd Davis (linebacker) to make it into a redirect, with the edit summary "(only one American football player with this name)".

That's not the way to go about things. When you checked Todd Davis and found that there was a hatnote to the existing article Todd Davis (linebacker) and realised that this was the same person for whom you intended to create an article, you should have edited the existing article instead of creating a new, duplicate article. You could then have Moved the article from the old title to your preferred one. As it stands, you have removed what Victorsmesq (talk · contribs) had created in the article, on 14th November.

If you had managed to create the new article alongside the old one, not noticing the old one existed, you should have used a {{merge}} template to propose merging the accidental duplicates; following the correct procedure then keeps the attribution to the existing article.

Don't just delete other editors' work like this, in future. Thanks. PamD 16:12, 25 November 2014 (UTC)

Suggestions re. columns, non-US readers[edit]

I've noticed your recent edits to David City, Nebraska, inserting a local football player to the "Notable people" section and changing the reference list to two columns. A couple of suggestions—

First, the column-number parameter in the reflist template has been deprecated: rather than {{reflist|2}}, the column-width parameter {{reflist|30em}} is preferred. This allows for variable numbers of columns, depending on the width of someone's browser window. See Template:Reflist, heading "Columns", second paragraph.

Second, describing someone as an "NFL player" isn't likely to mean much to non-US readers. I'd suggest "American football player" instead. — Ammodramus (talk) 12:35, 27 November 2014 (UTC)

Stanley Shakespeare[edit]

I saw you created an article on him and I tweaked it a little. Florida is my home and I remember when Shakespeare played for the U of Miami. His wife Marylin, was a nurse at St. Mary's Hospital who treated my wife when she was there on pregnancy bedrest in late 2002-early 2003. I told Marylin I remembered watching her husband play football. His death was tragic....William 01:01, 29 November 2014 (UTC)

Hey WikiOriginal-9, I noticed that you have been using your user page to draft and prepare edits before you make them.

Notice about curated page[edit]

Hi, I you notified me that you have unreviewed a page I curated. How did you get the information that I'm curating that page? Maybe you've notified the wrong person or so but I can't remember that I curated the page. I don't even know what it's about (without reading the article) and I don't appear in the history. — xZise [disc] 01:59, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

Head's up![edit]

Hey, WO-9, I wanted to give you a quick head's up: the version of Infobox NFL player that is displayed on your user page, and apparently the one you are using to replace Infobox pro football player, is not the current version. Please refer to the template page, and do include the current parameter/field names while including standard fields like "alt," etc., and using the standard parameter order.

Thanks for jumping on this. Once RW work wraps up for the holidays in couple of days, I will be happy to join you and to recruit more volunteers from the NFL and CFB WikiProjects to convert these last 550 or so uses of Infobox pro football player. Cheers and thanks for being a good WP:NFL citizen. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 17:20, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

  • Also, please note that most of these players started in the AFL (1960-70), or spent the majority of their careers in the AFL, and that their draft information is probably the AFL Draft, not the NFL Draft prior to 1968. Please be careful to update the template draft parameters to reflect the AFL Draft whenever appropriate. Like I said in the TfD, these infobox conversions do require some careful manual editing to accurately preserve the information already embedded in them. Cheers. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 17:59, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
    • Thanks for the tip, fortunately I already know this, the revision I left on the template merge discussion has both drafts included. WikiOriginal-9 (talk) 18:05, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
      • What made me raise the issue was your conversion of Mike Stratton, where the AFL Draft data was converted to NFL Draft data: [4]. Personally, I had to double-check which draft was referenced against several of the online player profiles and the Wikipedia articles for the NFL and AFL drafts. Given that Infobox NFL player can already become too long when many of the optional fields are used, or when the player has multiple teams and/or a long list of honors and awards, I usually only include NFL Draft data in the infobox for guys who signed with an NFL team, and likewise only AFL Draft data for guys who signed with an AFL team. Draft data for both leagues can be included in the text, if it's important to do so for the particular player. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 19:52, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

Infoboxes, Bill Swancutt, etc.[edit]

WO-9, thanks for being helpful to the newbie. It's not every day a British editor wanders into an NFL bio and starts making helpful edits. My take-away from the Bill Swancutt edits is the reminder that there are still 2,500 to 3,000 NFL bios that are still using Infobox gridiron football person and need to be converted to Infobox NFL player. During the infobox TfD discussion, I did a quick survey of 100 of the 7600 transclusions of the gridiron infobox: close to half of them were retired NFL players, coaches, owners and former league executives. When the TfD closes, I'd like to make whatever changes and updates are necessary for the NFL player infobox, and then recruit some WP:NFL and WP:CFB folks to help make the necessary replacements. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 17:23, 30 December 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, there are a lot of gridiron person infoboxes used on NFL players. I don't think that discussion is ever going to close though lol. WikiOriginal-9 (talk) 17:29, 30 December 2014 (UTC)
If it doesn't close by early next week, I will request a close. I've already started chewing on the revised infobox for college players. Please take a look: [5]. Your feedback is requested on the sandbox talk page. Once we settle on the data fields, I will request a template editor to prepare a mock-up in user space so everyone can see it.

Connor Reilly (spelling?)[edit]

WO-9, when I was replacing the infobox on this article yesterday, I discovered several sources that indicated his first name is properly spelled with a single "n," not two.

TfD: screwed-up merge of Template:Infobox Arena Football player, etc[edit]

This is actually correct: [6]. The problem is that AndyMabbett proposed an erroneous merge at TfD in February 2014, notified none of the affected football WikiProjects, and five non-sports editors (and one casual editor of Arena Football articles) signed off on the merge. As a practical matter, it doesn't matter too much. Arena Football player articles are supposed to use Infobox NFL player, not Infobox gridiron football person, and the overwhelming majority of the 3,500 Arena Football players do use the proper template. (There were 60 Arena player articles that still used the Arena player infobox at the time of the TfD, and presumably at least some of those were erroneously replaced with the gridiron football person infobox.) The larger problem, such as it is, is this redirect suggests that the proper template is Infobox gridiron football person, when that is incorrect. I've already left a message on Frietjes' talk page, where Magioladitis had left an update regarding the orphaning of the template. I am going to raise the issue with Magioladitis, and see what he thinks is the quickest to resolve the misleading redirect. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 23:21, 11 January 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for trying to fix it. WikiOriginal-9 (talk) 23:27, 11 January 2015 (UTC)

Dirtlawyer1 WP:BEBOLD and fix the redirect's target. The core idea of the TfD was that the Infobox Arena Football player can be replaced by some other infobox. From there we can choose what fits best. Thanks, Magioladitis (talk) 07:22, 12 January 2015 (UTC)

@Magioladitis:. Thank you for your response. Your "non-bureaucratic" suggestion is in the spirit of IAR, and we will proceed accordingly -- and revise the redirect page to accurately reflect the correct template that should be used in lieu of the now deleted Template:Infobox Arena Football player. Also, could you offer your thoughts when you believe it is appropriate to delete and redirect a deprecated template, as opposed to tagging it with a "deprecated template" notice while preserving the template page for historical reference? Over the next several months, two or three disused American football templates will have their remaining transclusions manually replaced with the standardized templates in current use, and I would like to know what you think is appropriate. Personally, I would like to delete the disused templates outright, in order to prevent their potential erroneous use in the future . . . . Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 14:51, 12 January 2015 (UTC)
Dirtlawyer1 I would suggest histmerge if fields of the older templates were used. Otherwise, keep them form 6 months (...or a year) and delete them as unused redirects if nobody keeps adding them. Meanwhile, warn any editor still adding them and update WP:AWB/TR. -- Magioladitis (talk) 20:29, 12 January 2015 (UTC)
Thanks, Magioladitis. Sounds like good, common-sense advice. I'm not an admin, so we will probably bug you again in 6 months to perform the suggested histmerge. In the mean time, I'm going to change the redirect to what WO-9 had before he self-reverted in an abundance of caution, and add an explanatory note regarding the TfD and the proper template for redirect. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 20:39, 12 January 2015 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── WO-9, I think the revamped redirect does what we need it to do. Magioladitis has signed off on it. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 12:01, 13 January 2015 (UTC)

Good move, thanks again. WikiOriginal-9 (talk) 13:53, 13 January 2015 (UTC)

Fixed number of columns deprecated[edit]

FYI: Template talk:Reflist/Archive 25#Deprecating fixed number of columns {{reflist|2}}

Even the fixed width option ({{reflist|30em}}) causes problems for some, and there is no compelling reason for its use unless the page consistently uses short footnotes. I like {{reflist}}. Why do you still switch pages to deprecated 2-column display?
Cheers. —Telpardec  TALK  19:16, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

I understand, but there was much more in CU logs than just socking via USer134353a. I'd be happy to discuss details, but preferably with checkuser and/or someone who dealt with Cow cleaner 5000. Materialscientist (talk) 05:14, 18 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Ok as an explanation of the events, I made one edit under User:USer134353a to the Justin Knapp talk page. It was just a spur of the moment philosophical question. For a short version of the reasoning, I just didn't use WikiOriginal-9 because I thought the comment might be controversial and people would think I was just being bias because of my amount of edits. I didn't put much thought into it. They might think I want my own article or something. I was just trying to be neutral for one random comment and do not like to attract controversy. It was not in bad faith. Sry for any confusion. I have been blocked for apparently being a sockpuppet of User:Cow cleaner 5000 as all of his sockpuppets seemed to be in opposition to Justin Knapp, judging by the usernames. I have no affiliation to Cow Cleaner 5000 lol. WikiOriginal-9 (talk) 02:30, 18 January 2015 (UTC)
I forgot to actually revoke talk page access; done now. "Don't wanna make another request but can't get anyone's attention otherwise." They obviously did not want to make a genuine unblock request. By now they also admitted to using sockpuppetry to avoid scrutiny. We're done here. Huon (talk) 02:59, 18 January 2015 (UTC)
@Huon:, @Materialscientist:, and @PhilKnight:: as @Cbl62: and @Yankees10: have done above, I can also testify to WikiOriginal-9's good editing and collaboration over the past few months. His edit on the Justin Knapp talk page was silly in at least two ways, but he clearly wasn't intending to subvert the integrity of the project. And this one slip-up shouldn't negate all of his other contributions, nor should it foreclose the chance for him to make more productive contributions in the future. It would be a real shame for us to lose him for good on Wikipedia. He's been blocked now for nearly two weeks now. What can he, and we, do to get him unblocked? Thanks, Jweiss11 (talk) 08:50, 1 February 2015 (UTC)
@Jweiss11: You can do nothing to get him unblocked. WikiOriginal-9 could avail himself of the venues pointed out in the message box above if he wanted to be unblocked and could provide a good explanation for whatever the CheckUser logs show (which I don't have access to) and assure us that the problems don't recur. Personally I wouldn't hold my breath, both in light of his stated desire not to make another unblock request and due to the salami slicing of his admissions. Huon (talk) 12:04, 1 February 2015 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────@Huon: Something does not add up here. WikiOriginal-9 was a remarkably productive and collegial editor over a period of ten months, performing volumes of needed and unheralded clean-up and participating in dozens of talk page discussions, and never showing any of the signs of misbehavior at issue here. It would be remarkable to have an individual who was performing the volume of productive edits under one completely positive guise, and then engaged in the number of serious acts of vandalism attributed to the Cow Cleaner 5000 sock farm. Your blocking of his talk page privileges has precluded him from availing himself of the easiest and most direct route for requesting an unblock, and I see no "abuse" of talk page privileges above, only a first-time blocked user fumbling for the right words of contrition regarding his only act of admitted sock-puppetry (and a pretty trivial and innocuous talk page comment, too). Since you are apparently not privy to the checkuser details yourself, are you the most appropriate administrator to be imposing indefinite blocks and revoking talk page privileges?
@Materialscientist: How conclusive is that checkuser data linking WikiOriginal-9 to these other miscreant sockpuppets, including Cow Cleaner 5000? We have lost a remarkably productive and collegial editor in WikiOriginal-9, apparently on the basis of checkuser details that cannot be revealed on-wiki. Is there any room for doubt or misinterpretation based on the checkuser evidence? I don't stick my neck out for serial sockpuppets, and I have a history of pursuing serial sock-puppets at SPI rather than seeking their rehabilitation. That being said, unless WikiOriginal-9 has been definitively proven to be the wiki equivalent of Jekyll and Hyde, I would hope that you, Huon, and the other concerned administrators would consider some of testimonials above by long-time editors. As I said above, something about Wiki-Original-9 as Cow Cleaner 5000 does not add up. The rest of us are being asked to accept this on faith; could some explanation be provided without breaching your checkuser confidentiality obligations? We're not looking for legal names, street addresses or IP numbers. Regards, Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 13:19, 1 February 2015 (UTC)

I have not imposed the indefinite block and removed talk page access only after WikiOriginal-9 explicitly said they did not want to make another unblock request. If they didn't mean what they said, there are still other venues open to them. Huon (talk) 13:55, 1 February 2015 (UTC)
We now have three respected editors (Yankees10, Jweiss11, Dirtlawyer 1) and me all expressing shock at the indefinite block of WO9 and also attesting to his diligence and good faith in editing sports-related pages. I suggest that, at a minimum, WO9's talk page privileges be restored, as there is absolutely no risk of vandalism in allowing him to speak here. There is, in contrast, a significant risk that a valued colleague is being permanently silenced and banished without having the opportunity even to defend himself. Cbl62 (talk) 19:47, 1 February 2015 (UTC)
I support restoring talk page access and would be willing to discuss the block (though I surely I won't comment much on CU data here), which has nothing to do with WO9's being a diligent editor. I had a second thought on CU data, and there is always a chance I'm missing something. So far they reveal that either WO9 is the good-hand account of Cow Cleaner 5000, actually preceding him, or that there is a coincidence of several unlikely events. Materialscientist (talk) 21:48, 1 February 2015 (UTC)

Looking at Wikipedia:Sockpuppet_investigations/Cow_cleaner_5000, the socks, among other things, troll Justin Knapp and his Wikipedia account. WikiOriginal-9 admits to socking and making one edit at Talk:Justin Knapp that question's the attention given to Knapp. According to Materialscientist, that sock of WO-9 technically matches up with Cow cleaner 5000 and their socks. Ok, maybe a very unfortunate coincidence. WO-9 is a pretty prolific editor, sometime on marathon sessions; see the time breakdown here. You would think there should be some overlap with edits of Cow's socks if this was merely a coincidence. So I randomly pick some accounts, but really can't find any overlapping times. When W0-9 is on, there is apparently so socking by Cow. Here are some close edit times that I have seen:

Either WO-9 is suffering from extremely bad timing and socked that one edit on the Knapp article, that is unfortunately being heavily scrutinized. Or WO-9 is the good hand here. As WP:GAB says: "If you are improperly blocked for sockpuppetry, you should realize that it may not always be easy or even possible to correct the situation."—Bagumba (talk) 23:25, 1 February 2015 (UTC)

I've considered time overlap (for a few related accounts), but this is not a strong factor in CU work - for example, it is easy to edit from two accounts in two web browsers. Materialscientist (talk) 00:01, 2 February 2015 (UTC)
Materialscientist, at are you at liberty to describe what it is that makes you think WikiOriginal-9 and his admitted sock, USer134353a, are the same person as Cow cleaner 5000 and his farm of socks? Jweiss11 (talk) 06:22, 2 February 2015 (UTC)
You mean "am I .. ?" Yes. Interested regulars can sign up here and I'll explain, by email. Materialscientist (talk) 06:32, 2 February 2015 (UTC)
I'd be interested in an email.—Bagumba (talk) 07:12, 2 February 2015 (UTC)
Materialscientist, sorry for the typo above. Yes, that's what I meant. I'm interested in that email as well. Jweiss11 (talk) 07:25, 2 February 2015 (UTC)
@Materialscientist: Understood that editing at the same time doesn't totally absolve the possibility of socks. However, in this case, they are not editing at the same time, and WO-9 often edits for long stretches, so it is peculiar there is not some overlap if they truly were different. Behaviorial evidence seems in sync with your technical CU observations. Again, the only explanation would be sheer bad luck on WO-9's part, which seems to be a huge stretch.—Bagumba (talk) 07:12, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

Hello, WikiOriginal-9. You have new messages at DMC511's talk page.
Message added DMC511 19:17, 6 March 2015 (UTC). You can remove this notice at any time by removing the {{Talkback}} or {{Tb}} template.
Thanks for your messages above. Also when I said like RIP and stuff, I wasn't really upset or anything. It's all good. You can't hear tone of voice or see facial expressions on here anyway. I appreciate the welcome backs. Also, I never really left and it probably wouldn't be a big deal anyway. Wikipedia or other Wikimedia sites aren't jobs or anything, just for fun. No one retires from watching movies or playing games lol. Also, thx to the admins above for helping the wiki. :) WikiOriginal-9 (talk) 19:26, 6 March 2015 (UTC)
Glad to see you are back! Jweiss11 (talk) 02:46, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 10[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Francis Webb (writer), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Thomas Amory (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Propose Monitor of This User[edit]

WikiOriginal-9 has been banned before and I strongly implore the community monitor his actions. It appears as if he is undoing large amounts of correction edits in order to contribute to his post account and +character number. Which is to say... when someone else removes something from a page he comes in an undos the removal which nets his a positive character count he didnt have to write. It appears as if he is making pages messier to manipulate his contribution history.

Often, users are correcting him multiple times for undoing actions and his long history provides a false sense of trust. He focuses mostly on undoing anything relevant to football pages which appears to be the subject he feels most comfortable with.

He is defacing thousands of pages and throwing away thousands of hours of man labor edits across the community. User was banned and allowing him to come back has cost the community. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rpr10 (talkcontribs) 14:52, 15 March 2015 (UTC)

Dale Cregan[edit]

Might I suggest you don't add Cregan to the serial killer category again. He doesn't match the serial killer criteria, so shouldn't be identified as such. This is Paul (talk) 15:01, 15 March 2015 (UTC)

Yeah, apologies for that, I just realised what you actually did. It looks like someone else added them and it got missed. This is Paul (talk) 15:06, 15 March 2015 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Infobox college football player[edit]

WO-9, do you have time to start checking a significant number of the college football player articles that used Template:Infobox college football player? There have been significant changes to the template coding in the past 48 hours, and we need to check a big sample of the articles that presently use the template and keep a list of any problems with how it being displayed or any problems with the input data that needs to be edited. Any time you have to devote to this in the next day or so would be greatly appreciated. Cheers. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 01:06, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

  • "Last thing lol, is the top of the infobox supposed to link to the team, or is that new. WikiOriginal-9 (talk) 18:41, 25 March 2015 (UTC)" Copied and pasted from my User talk:Dirtlawyer1 page.
  • That's presently under discussion, but I don't think so. I don't think infobox titles or article section headers should ever be linked, but we're working our way through some issues with template editors who bring a different perspective to the table. So, stand by. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 22:18, 25 March 2015 (UTC)
    • Yeah, I saw the discussion on the college infobox talk page. Thanks. WikiOriginal-9 (talk) 01:23, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

RE: Tackle vs End[edit]

That's ok. I can leave Brandon Dunn's position as a defensive tackle since the season hasn't started and no official depth chart has Brandon Dunn as a 3-4 defensive end. Which is what he will be when the Bears do move to the 3-4. NFL.com also doesn't update player profiles often. In some cases, they don't have some players positions correctly. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 96.47.121.49 (talk) 22:10, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
