John Buscema mediation[edit]

Hi, Andre. I think -- no, I know -- your help is needed. You'll see on the mediation talk page. Thanks very much. -- Tenebrae 04:02, 18 August 2007 (UTC)

Just caught your message[edit]

No more game finding site, but I do favors. :) Catch me anytime. Smoove K 05:17, 18 August 2007 (UTC)


An arbitration has been filed on the article you helped with about a month ago. At this point, the article and the problem user have had RFC at least twice, THIRD (I think twice), one formal and one informal WP:ASSIST, two WP:SOCK reports and a lengthy WP:WQA. Thank you again for your earlier help. -- Lisasmall | Talk 11:23, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

Please delete old pages[edit]

Hello, you changed my username to Star Trek Man a while ago. Please, I would appreciate you also delete my old personal pages: 1 and 2. Thanks a lot! — STAR TREK Man [Space, the final frontier...] 15:09, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

Andre's away at the minute, so I did it for you. --Deskana (banana) 15:15, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

Buscema: Help![edit]

Hi, Andre. I know Pittsburgh well. It's become quite a nice city over the past 15 years or so, and has world-class trauma centers.

When you get a chance, here is a cc of a posting I've just put up at Wikipedia talk:Requests for mediation/John Buscema. Thanks for any help, and good luck at Pitt or whichever college you're attending.--Tenebrae 03:32, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

cc of posting[edit]

You know what? I cannot keep track of the mess that Skyelarke has made of this page. Andre asked us, at 23:37, 2 August 2007, above, "let's just discuss this way, one image at a time".
I don't know when Andre will be checking in next, but I am having a rough time trying to deal with what is looking more and more like a fan so obsessive he refuses to work in good faith, can't or won't follow directions, and can't or won't respond to simple, non-controversial requests -- like stopping with the pointless italics, or waiting for directions from the mediator.
What do we do now, Andre? If one party can't have a normal social exchange, is there any hope for this mediation? Do we need to request arbitration? I'm a professional journalist/editor, I research convoluted business stories, and I can't follow this hodgepodge. I had no idea that doing this one image at a time as you suggested would be impossible for Skyelarke. --Tenebrae 03:27, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, I'm afraid I've grown impossibly exasperated with Skyelarke's latest obstinacy and repetition at the John Buscema mediation page, and told him so there in no uncertain terms. I can't imagine what it must be like for you, as a volunteer mediator, to be in the middle of such things; I can only hope we're not the worst you've seen.

This aside, please let me assure you I'm a responsible editor who's contributed many, many extensive articles over the last two years, have made many Wiki-friends, and have received, unasked for, many stars of appreciation and acknowledgment from my peers. I have tried for months to work with Skyelarke. It's not an impossible thought that some people simply cannot work with others.

You have a lot more pressing issues starting the new school year, I'm sure. And since the Buscema article is protected, there's no rush on any of this. Thanks again for taking the time. With respect for your trying position, --Tenebrae 00:59, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

Two Skyelarke pages[edit]

I've just run across this spinoff page of Skyelarke's. It's scary-obsessive. He also seems to have his own version of a John Buscema article ready to insert as soon as the protection is lifted. I'm flabbergasted and honestly a little bit concerned about someone like this. Please take a look when you get a chance. Good luck in school. --Tenebrae 06:11, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

Thanks, Andre. I just got your message after having posted some questions on the mediation talk page. I hope you're settling in OK at school. --Tenebrae 20:08, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

Waiting for your return[edit]

Mr. Fader, I hope you have successfully moved into your college quarters. I am writing to tell you that the editors of the pages John Favalora and Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Miami have reached a consensus with the exception of DominvsVobiscm. All editors reject the content submitted by DominvsVobiscm for the reasons stated on the mediation page of John Favalora. I ask you to please remove the content for the reasons so stated mainly that they violate several Wikipedia policies as stated in my section of the mediation page. I also ask you to please protect the page from further repeated vandalism by DomnivsVobiscm. He is trying to put the content on the page Roman Catholic Sex Abuse Cases. The content is neither a sex abuse case nor relevent to the subject of sex abuse cases in addition to being in violation of WP:RS, WP:REDFLAG, WP:PROVEIT, and WP:NPOV#Undue weight. NancyHeise 22:28, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

Looking forward to seeing you...[edit]

I just moved back to CMU today (I'm a second-year student), but so far I haven't been able to find you. If you have time, you may stop by at the location indicated by my username - that's where I live on campus. Scobell302 23:13, 23 August 2007 (UTC)


About a week ago, I added the StatusBot category to a few userpages of members of BAG, for the purpose of adding the {{ustatus}} template to the list on WP:BAG. Some users have disagreed with this, so I am going through the user talk pages of people I added the category to. Would you mind keeping the category, or would you prefer it to be removed? If you want it removed, you may delete your subpage of User:StatusBot/Status, in this case, User:StatusBot/Status/Andrevan, and remove the category from your userpage. This will hide the ustatus template and stop it being re-activated. Thanks! Matt/TheFearow (Talk) (Contribs) (Bot) 01:29, 27 August 2007 (UTC)

Changing username[edit]

I tried to login with the new username but it failed. Should I wait some time more? Thank you. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Eduardo Burgel (talkcontribs) 21:34, August 27, 2007 (UTC)

Hi there[edit]

You claim that the recent move of your personal essay "redundancy is good" was out of process - could you please point out where this alleged "process" that you think should have been followed is described? Note that the move saw extensive discussion on the village pump, as pointed out in the edit summary, and that despite your claim the page does not in fact have many incoming links. >Radiant< 08:33, 29 August 2007 (UTC)

Andrevan, thank you for taking the time to welcome me and provide me with useful links about Wikipedia. Desspec 00:49, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

"looks better with the font tags"[edit]

The font tags are there for one purpose only - to hide information. If _you_ don't want to see the non-wikilink links in a slightly different color, change your css file. I'll even give you the code:

#bodyContent .plainlinks a { color: #002BB8 }

But there's no justification for making everyone have it that way. --Random832 23:57, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

Then petition to have the plainlinks css (specifically, the line I quoted above added) changed for that, since plainlinks is only supposed to be used for that anyway. But putting font tags that don't even follow everyone's css (what if i have it so that links are green instead - what if i have a blue background, white text, and yellow links?) is not a good solution to this "problem". --Random832 01:14, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

This one's for you[edit]

Thanks so very much for supporting the recent FAC of Hispanic Americans in World War II. It was successful and Hispanic Americans in World War II has been promoted! I'm looking forward to hopefully getting Hispanic Americans in World War II on the front page. In the mean time, please accept this Beer as a token of my gratitude. Salud!

Hey, I was just wondering if you felt like merging your Arguments for advertising on Wikipedia into my Wikipedia:Advertisements? Seems like they cover lots of the same ground. — Jack · talk · 03:21, Sunday, 2 September 2007

request for edit[edit]


I am requesting for an administrator to eliminate the section called Church Scandals from the Archdiocese of Miami Wikipedia page. This information is already included on another Wikipage called Roman Catholic Church Sex Abuse Cases under a subsection titled Archdiocese of Miami. If one were to look on the Wikipedia page Duke University, they would not find a subsection called Duke Lacrosse Scandal because it is already the subject of an entire Wikipedia page to itself. The size of the Archdiocese of Miami subsection Church Scandals takes up the entire Wikipedia page on Archdiocese of Miami. It is referenced almost entirely to a source that is not considered a reliable source per Wikipedia standards (Matt Abbott Columns have no second editor or fact checker, he merely prints people's emails without any verification a person is who they say they are.) The Archdiocese of Miami has been sued numerous times on many issues. Many of these lawsuits are much more important than the dismissed lawsuit that takes up the entire section called Church Scandals as it stands now. It is therefore misleading to the reader to place so much importance on this one, dismissed lawsuit whose accusations are referenced to a source that violates Wikipolicy.NancyHeise 22:09, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

Removed the {{editprotected}} tag, as the request has already been made at Talk:Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Miami -- 09:31, 4 September 2007 (UTC)


I really appreciate the username change. It was about time... no more vandalism I hope. BurnMuffin Word, bro. 15:28, 5 September 2007 (UTC)


Dear Andrew Fader, I am requesting immediate removal of material on the wikipage Archdiocese of Miami that you locked in under the version edited by DominvsVobiscm. Specifically, allegations by Sharon Bourassa's dismissed lawsuit saying our priests are all practicing homosexuals who steal church funds to live exhorbitant lifestyles, the ownership in the liquid aphrodisiac which happens to be this , everything in this section. I would like to point out that there are no references that Wikipedia would allow to sustain having this material in this page, yet you are clearly allowing it to stay. I searched for any third party references to any investigations of any Archdiocese of Miami priest for stealing money and there are none. I searched for any third party references to find any kind of evidence that would sustain an accusation that over 400 priests are sexually active homosexuals. There are none. Wikipedia policy states that extraordinary claims must have extraordinary sources. This does not exist to sustain these claims. I have four school age children here. Sharon Bourassa and her tiny catholic hate group told entire schools full of children, including my own that the priests they have loved and known all their lives are practicing homosexuals because they own real estate (just like doctors do when investing) with other priests. I watched my child cry for over two hours and she only stopped after I told her that her own father owns a hunting cabin with his hunting friends, owning real estate does not mean a person is an active homosexual, nor that they have bought it with stolen funds. This is such a horrible defamation of good, innocent priests who have been loving and kind to our kids and it is so painful to see this garbage being proclaimed on Wikipedia, with your help and approval. Please remove this material that clearly violates wikipolicies WP:Redflag, WP:Proveit, WP:NPOV#undue weight, and WP:RS


Thak you for changing my username.Sincerely.Sağlamcı 07:58, 9 September 2007 (UTC)

Username change[edit]

Thanks for the rename, but there seems to be a problem; I have no contribs. Is there something wrong? --Boricuæddie 02:25, 10 September 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, thanks :-) --Boricuaeddie is now Agüeybaná 20:54, 10 September 2007 (UTC)

Mediation thing[edit]

Hey Andre,

I'm not too clear on what's happening with the mediation situation currently, if you could pipe in for some input, it would be much appreciated.


--Skyelarke 14:33, 11 September 2007 (UTC)

Archdiocese of Miami[edit]

Dear Andrew Fader, I have removed the threat to send this information to the Catholic League. I did not know that doing so would violate Wikipedia policy. Please know that I am not the only parishioner living in Archdiocese of Miami who is offended by this material and anyone can send this to the Catholic League. Wikipedia is inviting legal action against it by not following its own policies. I do not understand why you locked this page in its most offensive version with many statements lacking not only a reliable reference but any reference at all. NancyHeise 17:52, 11 September 2007 (UTC)

I have added an editprotected tag to the page Archdiocese of Miami because information locked on that page violates Wikipedia policies. I have specified the information to be removed and given reasons why inclucing references. I have also included this information without the tag on the page John Favalora Mediation to assist with the Arbitration process. Please see my input. Thanks. StacyyW 11:23, 12 September 2007 (UTC)


Thanks Andrevan, for the user name change. I appreciate your speediness! Mikhail Klassen 02:28, 13 September 2007 (UTC)
