Category:Behavioral and social facets of systemic risk[edit]

was Category:Systemic Risk - Behavioral & Social Facets

  • I'm the original author of two category pages
    • Category:Systemic risk This has a related article page Systemic risk that I did not author but could use updating. There may also be key Wikipedia pages that could be tagged with this category. Help from ASIA would be really nice!!!
    • Category:Behavioral and social facets of systemic risk I did not write an article page on this but would participate in a group to write one. See the talk page for more. This is bleeding edge research - 10 toes over the front of the surfboard type stuff. However its very real and have found at least one initial survey article (top quality in a heavily refereed journal) so its undeniably legitimate. Would love help here!!!

The "Bitcoin exchange" redirect[edit]

The Bitcoin exchange article is a redirect that conflates:

  • bitcoin exchange, an organized market matching supply and demand for the digital currency with
  • bitcoin exchanger, a market maker

I propose to cancel the redirect to disambiguate these two. Ladislav Mecir (talk) 06:51, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

I noted that a few articles had directed Bitcoin exchange to Digital currency exchanger, I think Bitcoin exchange is becoming notable enough in its own right to warrant an article, so created the article but set it as a redirect to Digital currency exchanger for now as did not have enough time to create an full article yet. The redirect is not ideal but is what was happening anyway. As for Ladislav Mecir comment, I do agree that there are two different concepts here but I note that in common usage the same name is used for organisations providing either a trading facility or an exchange between Bitcoins and Fiat money or both. His separation, although correct, does not seem to reflect common usage. It seems that its being used in the same way as foreign exchange which covers both trading facilities and physical exchangers of currency. My feeling is the best solution is for or somebody to create a full article on bitcoin exchanges, which can cover both concepts. Sargdub (talk) 04:20, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

Please help assess a draft at AFC[edit]

Draft:Mesbah point is about a concept in Islamic finance, please evaluate whether it is potentially notable and should be included in the 'pedia. Roger (Dodger67) (talk) 14:39, 20 July 2014 (UTC)

Could anyone look into this instance of probable paid employee editing on AdvisorShares and pages?[edit]

I came to find out about this originally by looking at the history of Phillipe Cousteau Jr.'s wikipedia entry. It seems that UserNameUnderConstruction (and other names like ETFinvestor that may be sockpuppets) has only been editing pages related to AdvisorShares and all of the edits the user makes are to get rid of factual information that may reflect negatively on the company and replace it with marketing language. Other users have suspects that this and confronted the user, but the user never denies working for the company and instead tries to go after those accusing him/her and get them banned from wikipedia and asking admins to protect the pages so they can´t be edited to change the marketing language.Icelandicgolfer (talk) 09:26, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

Greetings Icelandicgolfer. Suspected sockpuppetry should be reported at WP:SPI and allegations relating to editor behavior should be reported to WP:ANI. The WikiProject Finance talk page is geared toward discussion of the project's scope and article contents. You may not receive attention from administrators by calling editor behavior into question on this talk page. Nevertheless, I've alerted an administrator to your post here. Cheers, John Shandy`talk 19:59, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
This is a WP:BOOMERANG situation. Icelandicgolfer is a sockpuppet of a user who has disrupted these articles.—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 18:39, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
@Ryulong:I can understand why you think that. But why are you so certain? What proof do you have behind these allegations? I mentioned in my original post that I found some of my ideas from other users (although not ETFCanadian). I looked and realized that some of these users were banned for copying from ETFCanadian. However, I am just a crazy viking from the middle of nowhere Iceland and have no conflicts of interests with anyone. If you can look me up and find that I am not, do so and prove me wrong. Anyways, I don't want to get into too much of a confrontation over this silly issue. I thought that there was a freedom of speech in the USA and that the internet was supposed to be open transparent. ETFCanadian might have broken some rules, but I am not Canadian. I am just a crazy viking and you have no proof otherwise. Have a good day! I mean it. We vikings don't hold grudges.Icelandicgolfer (talk) 21:45, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
Stop pinging me with the yo template and end the "I'm a crazy Viking" spiel.—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 04:33, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
ok, sorry. I wasn't aware that that the yo template was "pinging" you. I just saw other people use it to address those who they were responding to. I will try not be negative towards you, like you are towards me. The viking thing is a joke, I do not know why it offended you. Have a great day!Icelandicgolfer (talk) 08:34, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
It's a bad joke and you should be blocked already considering the disruption caused.—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 12:05, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
@Ryulong:, it appears to me that you are currently a very angry, negative and bitter person. Maybe the viking thing was a bad joke, so you tell me a better one. Maybe it will make you smile and feel better for a few seconds. Why should I be blocked? What disruption did I cause? You are the one who is obsessed with conlfict and fighting with me. You have made a response to everyone of my posts. Your sock puppet accusation is false. You do things that I believe are technically against wikipedia's rules like reversing edits without explanation and constantly bullying a new user who is unfamiliar with the rules. On jytdog's page, you falsely claimed that I was banned from Wikipedia. I have been polite towards you even though you are angry at me, supposedly for my bad jokes. I am not going meet your fire with fire. We should be friendly. We both are supporters of preserving the oceans; I assume you are from your Wikipedia page. I don't dislike anyone. However, I would like to suggest that you try to relax and look at the world from a different perspective. All of this anger must be bad for your health. Have a nice day, or night as it is here in Iceland!Icelandicgolfer (talk) 22:20, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
Then why are you obsessed with the same subjecst as other inappropriately created alternate accounts that had been used to disrupt the subject of Cousteau Jr and these companies? Why have you jumped straight into this dispute?—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 13:46, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Note, the OP has been banned as a meatpuppet and the SPI was closed here. Jytdog (talk) 14:07, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Comment on the WikiProject X proposal[edit]

Hello there! As you may already know, most WikiProjects here on Wikipedia struggle to stay active after they've been founded. I believe there is a lot of potential for WikiProjects to facilitate collaboration across subject areas, so I have submitted a grant proposal with the Wikimedia Foundation for the "WikiProject X" project. WikiProject X will study what makes WikiProjects succeed in retaining editors and then design a prototype WikiProject system that will recruit contributors to WikiProjects and help them run effectively. Please review the proposal here and leave feedback. If you have any questions, you can ask on the proposal page or leave a message on my talk page. Thank you for your time! (Also, sorry about the posting mistake earlier. If someone already moved my message to the talk page, feel free to remove this posting.) Harej (talk) 22:47, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
