My Request for Adminship[edit]

Greetings, Anonymous editor! I wanted to sincerely thank you for voting in my RfA, which passed with a final result of 55/14/3. Your support means a lot to me! If you have any questions or input regarding my activities, be they adminly or just a "normal" user's, or if you just want to chat about anything at all, feel free to drop me a line. Cheers! —Nightstallion (?) 07:50, 4 January 2006 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thank you for your support of my RfA, and for your generous comment. I appreciate your confidence. Best wishes for a happy new year, Tom Harrison Talk 13:24, 4 January 2006 (UTC)

RfA[edit]

Hi, I know that there was nothing suspicious in the edit you made. It just would have been safer to have done nothing. Anyway, good luck, I hope and expect to see you as an admin real soon now. Dlyons493 Talk 04:19, 5 January 2006 (UTC)

Glad to see you made it even without me. If ther had been any real danger I'd have switched back. I expect you'll make a real good admin. Dlyons493 Talk 18:39, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

My Request for Adminship[edit]

Hey man, thanks very much for voting in my RfA, I got it! :) If you need anything, just give me a shout. - FrancisTyers 00:50, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

Congratulations![edit]

Congratulations! It's my pleasure to let you know that, consensus being reached, you are now an administrator. You should read the relevant policies and other pages linked to from the administrators' reading list before carrying out tasks like deletion, protection, banning users, and editing protected pages such as the Main Page. Most of what you do is easily reversible by other sysops, apart from page history merges and image deletion, so please be especially careful with those. You might find the new administrators' how-to guide helpful. Cheers! -- Cecropia 17:17, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

My congrats to you as well; you're very welcome. PJM 17:54, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

Congratulations! —Kirill Lokshin 17:59, 6 January 2006 (UTC)
Ditto! I'm delighted the outcome was so much better this time. Best, Chick Bowen 18:03, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

Hey congratulations, AE. I'm glad that the long and winding road finally led to the right place. ;-) Use it for the good. SlimVirgin (talk) 18:12, 6 January 2006 (UTC)
What? I can't believe I missed this - I just saw that you had become an admin, and had no idea you had an RFA going on, so I deeply apologize! In any case, I am so happy you made it, congrats! Ramallite (talk) 18:19, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

My RfA[edit]

WikiThanks.png
Hi,
I just want to say thanks for supporting me on my request for adminship! It passed by a 58/3/0 margin, so I am now an administrator. If you need me to help you out, or you find that I'm doing anything wrong, please don't hesitate to contact me. --Idont Havaname (Talk) 19:19, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

Rollback[edit]

Hey there, just to let you know (as I've been told off for this in the past, hehe) that as per Wikipedia:Administrators#Reverting, you should try to avoid using your rollback button for edits that are not simple vandalism. Thanks, →FireFox 19:30, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

Well, there are {{tools}}, {{deletiontools}} and {{Administrators' noticeboard navbox}}... Take a look through User:Zondor/Toolboxes and see if you can find any more you may find useful :) →FireFox 19:42, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

You better do more than try to be a good admin. Or something. Enjoy and glad you got it. gren グレン 19:55, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

AOA and congratulations[edit]

Great news. Nobody deserves this more than you, my friend. Here's hoping you enjoy the next phase. BYT 20:21, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

Yeah, right. :) Don't think it's a likely outcome. Peace, BYT 20:24, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

AE, much congratz on your RfA, and much thanks for your vote of support on mine! I will do my best to be a good admin! If you see me doing anything that you think is ill-advised, please do let me know! Also, I'm happy that we have now patched things up, and also that we had not, as I was concerned, "screwed ourselves" in the process! So thank you so much, happy tidings, and I shall see you around!

Congrats : )!Yuber(talk) 03:16, 7 January 2006 (UTC)

Great start[edit]

Since my congrats message, I've seen you beating me to reverts of vandalism using your new button, and being very restrained and reasonable on 3RR/Warrior Scribe. Wonderful start. KillerChihuahua?!? 22:56, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

3RRvios[edit]

Hi, I saw your response to WarriorScribe's 3RRvio report. I agree totally with your ideas, except most other admins don't. Protecting pages is a big deal and they prefer to enforce the 3RR. In such cases, I usually say that I won't enforce the rule if all parties stop reverting - if someone who has already violated the rule makes another revert, then enforce the rule against that user only. I can't really understand when pages should be protected (the WP:PPol isn't clear enough) - it's usually for big edit wars that have lasted for more than 24 hours (ie the parties are gaming the 3RR). Cheers! Izehar 23:02, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

Persian language[edit]

AE, I took out the para re the special qualities of Persian. That's POV. Wikipedia can't say that some languages are better than others. People have written poetry in every language that exists, and speakers of that language enjoy the poetry. It's not the Persian language that makes Rumi special, it's his own skill and insight. Zora 23:04, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

Okay Zora, as long as the other editors don't have a problem with it. --a.n.o.n.y.m t 23:06, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

Delete article[edit]

Is it possible to get an article deleted that I created earlier today, for which I am the sole contributor so far, without going through the formal delete process? The article is redundent as I replaced with a template, and there is nothing that links to it. The article is [[1]]. Thanks —akghetto talk 23:48, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

The article in question is Wikipedia:WikiProject_Alaska/to_do. Thanks again. —akghetto talk 23:51, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

semi-protection of my user page[edit]

Thanks, I think it will be safe to remove the protection in 6 hours or later, I'll let you know. Again thanks,

Prodego talk 01:36, 7 January 2006 (UTC)

Ok, please unprotect now, thanks again. Prodego talk 17:17, 7 January 2006 (UTC)

Congratulations[edit]

I congratulate you on your elevation to adminship, and wish all the best. --Bhadani 06:21, 7 January 2006 (UTC)

Please allow me to adhere to Bhadani and congratulate you warmly. Best wishes with your new mop! Cheers, -- Phædriel *whistle* 06:40, 7 January 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for your support on my request for adminship.

The final outcome was (80/3/0), so I am now an administrator. I was flattered by the level of support and the comments, so I'm under real pressure not to disappoint, thus if you have any queries, suggestions or problems with any of my actions as an admin then please leave me a note --pgk(talk) 10:08, 8 January 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for your support on my request for bureaucratship.

The final outcome was (70/5/0), so I am now a bureaucrat. I seriously didn't expect so many good comments from everybody and I appreciated the constructive criticism from those that gave it. If you have any queries, suggestions or problems with any of my actions as a bureaucrat then please leave me a note.

-- Francs2000 21:26, 9 January 2006 (UTC)

Page protection?[edit]

Hi, could you please unprotect Comparative military ranks of World War II. As the 3RR has been enforced, the edit war has stopped. Out of the four main editors on that article, Nixer is the one who causes trouble. Page protections are a big deal and I don't think that everyone should be punished for Nixer's trolling, which believe me, he has a long history of (remeber his block log)? Thanks. Izehar 22:03, 9 January 2006 (UTC)

Thanks. Izehar 22:19, 9 January 2006 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Limited administrators[edit]

I have created this policy proposal because of my recent observations about admin and community issues. Increasing vandalism and increasing admin disputes are not good. Just, see what you think and maybe tell others? I have no idea if anyone will like support this idea or if there is anything similar out there that I haven't seen besides Wikipedia:Requests for rollback privileges (I looked through the policy proposal cat and saw nothing). Just testing the waters. (stock text) gren グレン ? 13:31, 10 January 2006 (UTC)

JzG[edit]

Per Wikipedia:Requests for adminship/JzG, did you also look at my old account? The Editcount tool shows 1878 edits to the main article space under that account. And yes, with that account, too, I made more edits to the project space than to the article space - partly because of extended discussions in some RfC/RfAr issues but mainly in AfD. I acknowledge the point re edit summaries and have added a "force edit summary" script to my monobook.js. Thanks for your comments, - Just zis  Guy, you know?

That was quick... Thanks for the welcome (and for the barnstar). I'll be easing my way back in, and trying not to overdo it — at least at first. --Mel Etitis (Μελ Ετητης) 17:20, 10 January 2006 (UTC)

Potential collateral damage[edit]

Take a look at User talk:JamieJones -- that user had left me messages previously at User talk:Nlu and appears to be a good faith user. See if you think that the address should be unblocked. Thanks. --Nlu (talk) 23:11, 10 January 2006 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

I read that you fixed it. I'll try tomorrow. Thanks for the speedy fix. I hope to be an editor someday too. But i'm too new. Any suggestions are great tho. JamieJones 01:08, 11 January 2006 (UTC) what did you mean busier? does an admin have special responsibilities?

Article Help[edit]

Anon - I had been working on the Robert Spencer page for a while, until some of the folks who work for Spencer got very involved with trying to remove the critical aspects of the article. Would love to have an outside voice take a look at the page if you have time - I am too close to it now to try to get to NPOV, but I think the article edit wars have serious problems. --Yalto 03:35, 11 January 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for asking Yalto. I will take a look at it in one or two days. --a.n.o.n.y.m t 03:39, 11 January 2006 (UTC)

Thanks and Questions[edit]

Thanks for reverting Cherokee society. Why would anyone want to delete the article? Is it the article itself or because I'm the one who started the article? I realize I have folks on Wikipedia that literally hate my guts. That is their misfortune. The best revenge is too live well and happy. So that is what I'm attempting to do. Wado (thank you in Cherokee), --Bumpusmills1 04:47, 11 January 2006 (UTC)

Belated congratulations[edit]

This is way overdue, but CONGRATULATIONS on your new admin appointment! --MPerel ( talk | contrib) 07:16, 11 January 2006 (UTC)

favor[edit]

Hey, Anon, I hope you don't mind my asking you for an admin-favor. I'd like to move Niccolo Tribolo to Niccolò Tribolo (the name already reflected by the article headword) and can't because someone corrected a typo in the redirect at some point. I'm reluctant to post it at WP:RM because it's so ridiculously trivial. Would you mind terribly just deleting the Niccolò Tribolo redirect so I can perform the move? As you can see, it's got no history whatsoever. Thanks. Chick Bowen 00:49, 12 January 2006 (UTC)

Thanks! Much obliged. Chick Bowen 02:38, 12 January 2006 (UTC)

question[edit]

Have you checked your email recently? I sent you something. Peace BYT 16:30, 12 January 2006 (UTC)

"Holy"[edit]

Could you point out in what articles the word "holy" was appropriately used before I removed them? I have tried to avoid removing it from citations, or book titles. If I made an error in doing that, please be more specific! In general, there's no need to call the Qur'an, the Bible, or any other religious book "holy". This is in line with Wikipedia policy! ---Benne ['bɛnə] (talk) 21:17, 12 January 2006 (UTC) I might have made a mistake in editing the Nation of Islam, but I disagree with you on [2]. Stating that "the Holy Qur'an" is declared the constitution of the country is not neutral. It's not a citation, it doesn't say that the Qur'an is the holy book of Islam, it's therefore unnecessary to use the adjective "holy". In my opinion, most of my edits are in line with Wikipedia:Manual of Style (Islam-related articles). ---Benne ['bɛnə] (talk) 21:33, 12 January 2006 (UTC) Well, if you think it's unnecessary to remove holy from phrases like "the Holy Qur'an", you should criticise the policy I just mentioned. Please note that I also removed "holy" from "the Holy Bible" a few times. After stating once that Muhammad is the prophet of Islam, there's no necessity to repeat that title. And to me, it doesn't seem like the title "Christ" is used superfluously in the Christ article. And there's a difference in usage between the name Jesus, and the title Christ, which is explained in the article. But that's beside the point. ---Benne ['bɛnə] (talk) 21:56, 12 January 2006 (UTC)

I see that you have taken an interest in the dispute over the content of one section of this page. It is apparent that this issue will not be solved by the participants alone.

Socks[edit]

Hey, anon! I received a rather... disturbing message from User:Lajjadda in my user page, and was about to reply to him, except that I've found out that he's been blocked. I'm a bit confused and (more than a little) rattled right now, but exactly what was he being blocked for? Granted, having someone accusing me of zina is less-than-pleasant, but I'm trying to regain some degree of equilibrium by finding out what happened. -- T-Boy 03:04, 18 January 2006 (UTC)

All right, but it looks like Lajjadda managed to revert the article back to his POV before you banninated him. Um, would re-reverting that contravene with the three-revert rule?-T-Boy 03:18, 18 January 2006 (UTC)

Going on Umrah soon. Going for a ‘Practice’ in London first, then onwards with a group of French, German and British Muslims. I want to make Dua for as many folks as I can, just because I don't know when I'll be able to go there again, so Email me and let me know if you would like to be included!

Acceptable or not[edit]

Hmm... It's ironic; before the recent discussion about this, I would have notified BYT of that same vote, because he would be interested, even though I expect he would vote other than as I did. To Urthogie's credit, he notified everyone generally, rather than supporters only. Of course it doesn't belong on the administrators' notice board, but I guess I don't mind if more people know about the discussion. Tom Harrison Talk 20:02, 21 January 2006 (UTC)

I suppose it could be taken down as inappropriate, but whoever did would be accused of tring to hold a stealth vote. It's McCain-Feingold in miniature;) Tom Harrison Talk 20:06, 21 January 2006 (UTC)
Really the place for his announcement is WP:RM, where it is already. I'll mention to him for future reference that the noticeboard isn't the place for that. Tom Harrison Talk 20:13, 21 January 2006 (UTC)
