Werner Voss[edit]

Hello,

I went as far as I could on nominating this article for A Class. When the popup template didn't happen/couldn't be located, I paused and asked Ian Rose for help. Another editor then edited the talk page banners while Ian repeated the same useless advice I found in WP section on A Class nominations. Now you have decided I can't nominate the article after all.

This is the third time I have tried to submit an article for A Class review, and the third time I have failed at the same point and been refused help. If I could ever learn to get past this same snag, I could add some first rate articles to WP. As it is, why should I bother making the article the best I can? I obviously should settle for "good enough"—that is, either B Class, or ignore the assessment process entirely as I have been.

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) 07:45, 20 August 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 9[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Pete Saunders, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page West London (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.

WP:RFPP[edit]

Thank you for taking some time to go through WP:RFPP, as it has been getting backlogged a lot recently. However, you declined my request for protection of My Name Is My Name for their not being enough recent activity. However, there was dubious unsourced addition, unsourced addition, dubious unsourced addition, mass dubious unsourced change, dubious unsourced change, and minor incorrect change, all by different IPs/users in the last four-five days. I mean if it was not for me actively reverting this edits, I could just imagine the crappy shape the article would be in. Considering the album is going to be released in less than a month, many more are sure to come, after all more than half of those diffs took place in the last few hours. I thought might as well strike while the iron is hot. The article had been protected less than a month ago, and I would hate to have to report the article again once I have five more unsourced changes, just to have to wait a day (and the report to become stale) due to the current lack of attention to WP:RFPP. But either way, I respect your decision and thank you for your time. STATic message me! 22:06, 14 September 2013 (UTC)

Hi Static, thanks for leaving me a message about this. This is one of those very awkward articles that fall on the boundaries of protection. The additions are not vandalism per se, certainly not clear cut instances of vandalism. For every unsourced dubious edit there is one edit that is good and not reverted and that is the issue I had with protecting that article. New users are always going to make a mistake and not know the guidelines of Wikipedia, at least one of the edits you list could fall under the bracket of misguided newbie. The trouble is when you have large numbers of those edits it can get very tiresome. I understand your frustration (particularly with a lot of footballers on my watchlist where this is a perennial problem). Let me know in a few days if there are still significant issues and I will look at protecting it for a while. Regards, Woody (talk) 22:28, 14 September 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for the positive response, some administrators can be very condescending when you question their decisions haha. I do understand though, because there have been a few minor spelling/grammar mistakes fixed by IPs recently, and the most recent one (an IP actually added a reference, you do not understand my level of shock). All joking aside, that sounds fine I will stop by here if it resumes. STATic message me! 22:38, 14 September 2013 (UTC)

Also, I noticed you declined Insidious: Chapter 2 protection request. Another editor commented on it at WP:RFPP and if you see the history of the page there is a lot of vandalism, including the whole plot being rewrote by an IP. At the least I believe the page requires pending changes so someone can review the changes before they go up. Thanks in advance. STATic message me! 02:11, 15 September 2013 (UTC)

Clan Hay - Red links[edit]

Hi, I was not aware of the Wikipedia policy on red links, so thanks for bringing it to my attention. However I will shortly be carrying out further works to the Clan Hay article. There is a lot of unsourced information in the history section that I would like to get referenced up. I will not be touching any of the existing sourced information.QuintusPetillius (talk) 09:37, 6 October 2013 (UTC)

Some help please[edit]

Hello Woody, I am bringing this to your attention because you have previously dealt with this editor. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:NorthBySouthBaranof#Blocked_for_edit_warring I am not asking for a block but possibly a warning for malicious/revenge editting as illustrated below. I editted an article she had recently editted and it appears she decided to stalk my edits and pursue unconstructive editting. I do not possess all the proper wiki bureaucracy skills so I am unsure of all the procedures when encountering this and honestly do not have time at this moment to dedicate due to academic demands. Give her some time to respond to my post on her page and do the right thing but if not can you emphasize that she does not pursue stalking/revenge editting. Thanks for your help with this matter.172.56.10.195 (talk) 14:12, 3 March 2014 (UTC)

Edit Stalking

Hi NBSB. I noticed you recently reverted my edit http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Huma_Abedin&oldid=597936146 which added of the sexting scandals. I have no real problem with that. I do point out that you previously editted that article and may be engaged in edit warring or claim ownership. However you then stalked my edits http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Susan_L._Douglass&oldid=597936473 and deleted a nomination for speedy delete http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Susan_L._Douglass&direction=prev&oldid=597936232 of an article that had not been edited in 2 and half years, lacked any references, and was created by a banned sock http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:American_Clio as I identified in the speedy delete nomination. The appearance of malicious/revenge editting can not be overlooked here. Please undo your edit of the latter article so I do not have to resort to reporting this to an admin for further action. Please engage in constructive edits. Thanks 172.56.10.195 (talk) 13:49, 3 March 2014 (UTC)

An RfC that you may be interested in...[edit]

As one of the previous contributors to {{Infobox film}} or as one of the commenters on it's talk page, I would like to inform you that there has been a RfC started on the talk page as to implementation of previously deprecated parameters. Your comments and thoughts on the matter would be welcomed. Happy editing!
