As such it may contain opinions and unsupported facts...even possible HUMOR.


I can NOT emphasize this enough. There seems to be a terrible bias among some editors that some sort of random speculative 'I heard it somewhere' pseudo information is to be tagged with a 'needs a cite' tag. Wrong. It should be removed, aggressively, unless it can be sourced. This is true of all information, but it is particularly true of negative information about living persons.

Jimmy Wales

Oh, let me explain, then. I hear from many people who are BLP enforcers that they feel unsupported and there are constant concerns about whether they will be fully backed if they do what is necessary. In general, I think those fears are overblown, but the point I am making today is that I am standing firm on this issue. BLP enforcement is important. Speedy deletion, blocking people violating the policy, protecting pages, sprotecting pages, what needs doing can be done confidently. First, protect the reputations of people who may be in a position of being victimized by someone by using our resources. And sort out the details later, there is no rush. If there's a horrible murderer out there somewhere and if for a week Wikipedia doesn't have an article at all, until finally some reliable sources are fine, that's perfectly ok. What's not ok is BLP violations. I think everyone agrees with that, but not everyone yet fully understands that those who disagree are quite simply wrong and will have no power when a decision comes in judgment of whatever may have happened in a difficult situation.

What I do on Wikipedia

I'm a participant in Wikipedia:Disambiguation and Wikipedia:Recent changes patrol. I also seem to be pretty good at negotiating and mediating disputes before they turn into edit wars. In real life I often act as impromptu mediator when two people are arguing, it seems to be a natural talent of mine, or my background in psychology. So now I find myself searching wiki for potential edit wars and anything else that looks interesting. I click the revert button a lot. I also cut and paste parts of other people's user pages and add them to my own if I think they are nice or if I think they fit. This is particularly true of Userboxen.

These are mostly humor articles that rubbed some admin or other the wrong way. I either created or contributed content to each of these. All have been up for deletion, speedy deletion, or are in a state of deletion as of this writing (any red ones).

This is for single-handedly preventing an edit war in which I most certainly would have made an ass of myself (along with the other guy and probably half the group). It was getting ugly- then you came along. Your solution was a pretty good one. We all thank you for your arbitration! Chahax 02:59, 15 March 2007 (UTC)

You're capable of remaining (almost painfully) civil even when people are complaining about your edits or other actions, or when offering feedback even in opposition to something. I wish you could teach that skill to others! —Darkwind (talk) 03:04, 6 January 2013 (UTC)
