RFC[edit]

Would you like some help on forming an RFC? If you write what you're interested in asking here I can help you form the question and file the RfC, or advise if it s already dealt with. It would help if you got an account too (which is actually more anonymous and has advantages). Verbal chat 17:43, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

OK, sure. We seem to have three for and three against. We need some impartial people to act as tiebreaker to see what we should do with the article. 70.186.172.75 (talk) 19:55, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

Seth Material[edit]

I just left this note for Gandalf61, and I thought I'd show it to you also:

I'm toying around with the idea of retiring from the fight. I don't have the energy for it. I have owned the domain name Sethmaterial.org for a long time, and I'm just going to develop that. This is not the first battle I've been in with atheists, skeptics, Christians, etc., on Wikipedia. This is the first time, however, that they showed up in such a large gang. Their tactic is to wear out other authors until the other authors give up. It doesn't matter how many references we put into the article, it won't be enough. Those two articles -- Jane Roberts and Seth Material -- are the only articles I edit, but it isn't worth the stress. Most people, I believe, do not go to Wikipedia for their info but instead search the net, so my site will probably get more exposure. There isn't, in fact, a site which simply explains who and what Seth was, so I'll be filling a void. This decision isn't definite. If I didn't feel that you needed backing up, I would definitely leave. If you decide to stay and continue working on the site, maybe I'll also stay. Tonight I'm just very tired.--Caleb Murdock (talk) 01:59, 4 December 2008 (UTC)
I figured I'd answer here. Thanks for your reply. As I said above, my site will be Sethmaterial.org, and I expect to have it up and running by January or February. It will be an introductory article, but more essay-like than the Wikipedia article. I tried so hard to make the Seth Material article neutral in tone. I thought I had, but obviously not. The only thing I did that was not entirely neutral was to include so many quotes -- I wanted people to get the flavor of Seth by reading his actual words. I really did have this idea about Wikipedia that people expected it to be a little sloppy because everyone worked on it, and I had no idea that roving bands of editors could completely up-end an article, and seemingly do it all within the rules (although I believe this particular band was stretching the rules). Take care.--Caleb Murdock (talk) 09:08, 4 December 2008 (UTC)
For a short time it appeared that we were going to be able to edit the article in situ. But then they brought in a new person (SeminalPanic) who merged a bunch of sections and deleted some text. When I restored the text, he undid it and accused me of vandalism (ha), and then someone came in and froze the article for three days. I'm telling you, they aren't going to allow us to write this thing.--Caleb Murdock (talk) 10:36, 8 December 2008 (UTC)
Thanks so much for helping to save the article. Your contribution was more valuable than mine. Now that we've gone through this fight, it will be harder for people to try to delete it in the future. The tongue-lashing that NoVomit got when he put the article in for deletion was a riot.--Caleb Murdock (talk) 08:25, 13 December 2008 (UTC)
