Disambiguation link notification for November 23

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Abadir Umar Ar-Rida, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Harari (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Input

Hi Baboon43. As one of the more active and knowledgeable contributors on the Horn of Africa articles, I was wondering if perhaps you wouldn't mind taking a look at the Somalis in the United Kingdom article? An editor has added some material related to race that has been a bone of contention. Specifics can be found here. Best regards, Middayexpress (talk) 15:50, 3 December 2012 (UTC)

I dont know much about this subject to weigh in on it. Baboon43 (talk) 06:17, 4 December 2012 (UTC)

Left a response there. Cheers, Middayexpress (talk)

We are in agreement. The section is undue, misleading and unimportant. An admin said that we could make edits to the page once consensus has been formed, so please feel free to remove it. Middayexpress (talk) 14:05, 9 December 2012 (UTC)

I've started a discussion on the applicability of the "Black British" categories to Horn African pages. The user attempted to add such a category to the Somalis in the United Kingdom, Category:British people of Somali descent, and other Horn African pages/bios, arguing that Somali, Ethiopian and Eritrean immigrants in Britain are and self-identify as "Black British". On this basis, he has also added some Somali material to the "Black British" article. Your input on this matter would be greatly appreciated. Best, Middayexpress (talk) 18:01, 10 December 2012 (UTC)

Hi Baboon43. Did you get a chance to look at the post? What do you think? Are we in agreement on this point as well? Please leave your reply there. Cheers, Middayexpress (talk) 14:50, 11 December 2012 (UTC)
Ok, left a reply there. Cheers, Middayexpress (talk) 15:18, 12 December 2012 (UTC)

Harari

By the way, how do you feel about a collage of notable Hararis? Middayexpress (talk) 18:01, 10 December 2012 (UTC)

notable collage sounds good. Baboon43 (talk) 18:28, 15 December 2012 (UTC)
Ok, so far we have Abdullah al-Harari and Sheikh Abadir Umar ar-Rida. The Sheikh Abadir pic seems to be fair use, though, so I've placed them individually in the infobox until we can find a non-copyrighted or public domain example for a collage. In the meantime, can you think of any other notables that might fit? At least four is the ideal minimum. Best, Middayexpress (talk) 14:37, 16 December 2012 (UTC)
there's pics of amir abdullahi (last king of harar) online Baboon43 (talk) 23:28, 4 January 2013 (UTC)
Can you link to one or some of them? Middayexpress (talk) 15:59, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

ANI noticeboard

Hello. There is currently a discussion at WP:ANI regarding ongoing disputes in regard to content and conduct. The thread is Accusations of extremism.The discussion is about the topic Barelvi. Thank you. —MezzoMezzo (talk) 07:47, 5 February 2013 (UTC)

Cooperating

So things are ok now? MezzoMezzo (talk) 12:20, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

Hey man, I replied on my talk page for now, but in the future could you post messages like this on the talk page for the article? If the other user isn't paying attention, you could just message them on their talk page mentioning that there is a discussion on such-and-such talk page. I didn't know what you were talking about at first so it took me a minute to figure it out. MezzoMezzo (talk) 03:26, 13 February 2013 (UTC)
i thought it wouldnt be a problem since you post on my talk page. Baboon43 (talk)
It's not a problem, what I'm saying is you can post it on the talk page for that article and then post on my talk page to remind me. When you started off the bat like that, I was immediately sure what you were talking about because I edited a lot of articles yesterday. It's not a big deal, just a suggestion. Also, more than just you and I might be interested in the discussion, hence the benefit of posting it on the talk page for the relevant article. MezzoMezzo (talk) 03:56, 13 February 2013 (UTC)
Hey, I opened a discussion on the talk page for the Albani article. Bring whatever sources you can and let's work out a new consensus there. As it is, the article has very few reliable sources so anything we can bring will help. MezzoMezzo (talk) 04:23, 13 February 2013 (UTC)
actually i would have opened a discussion on the talk page sooner if i intended on dwelling on the albani issue.my intention was to put my point across your edit on his article that is all..i would prefer to develop other articles then albanis at the moment but maybe sometime in the future. Baboon43 (talk) 04:31, 13 February 2013 (UTC)

Ahbashism campaign

There was a request for further discussion, specifically an RfC on that page. I don't know how comfortable you would be with me acting in the role of Wikipedia:Third opinion, or if you'd like to go directly to RfC. But speaking as someone who knows little about the subject from the outside looking in, its a contentious article which could benefit from multiple comments. Think of it this way: if you, McKhan and all others interested can sort out that conflict smoothly, your time will be freed up to move on to other articles and projects. MezzoMezzo (talk) 07:37, 16 February 2013 (UTC)

RFC is fine. Baboon43 (talk) 19:49, 16 February 2013 (UTC)
I'm not trying to stifle you, OK? If I really didn't like you personally, I wouldn't respond to you at all. I think that overall, you're an active editor who has made many good contributions to this site. I'm not your enemy and I don't want to be. Please understand, I'm only trying to mediate because I see the discussion headed in a direction that might end with nobody's views being heard. I'm trying to help you, even if we disagree sometimes. This is why I respond even here on your personal page. Please understand that I say what I say as a respectful editor towards a peer, not as someone who just wants to battle someone else over content. MezzoMezzo (talk) 09:14, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

Assalamoalaikum!There is a discussion going on here [3] and I have been accused of Personal Attacks ,as you have worked on Barelvi Page and have engaged in long discussions your views regarding the behavior of MezzoMezzo is relevant.Thanks. Shabiha (talk) 15:59, 21 February 2013 (UTC)

Good work

Nice one over on the Deobandi article. I remember initially not knowing what the GEE was when you mentioned it once. Then I found it and started using it on the biographies for some sheikhs, and somebody randomly told me what a Wikipedia fork is. Good on you for finding a valid source for the same material though. See. I'm not here to fight you, man. I just want Wikipedia to be better, even if I'm wrong sometimes. MezzoMezzo (talk) 03:45, 5 March 2013 (UTC)

Can you remove one the two templates? They both say the same thing. Thats my main problem. It makes it unaesthetic and awkward.Sopher99 (talk) 19:27, 7 March 2013 (UTC)

both are separate types of templates. Baboon43 (talk) 19:28, 7 March 2013 (UTC)

"This article may be unbalanced towards certain viewpoints Please improve the article by adding information on neglected viewpoints, or discuss the issue on the talk page. "

You are now on 3RR on this article, further edit warring will lead to a report at ANEW. The source most certainly does say what McKhan has added. Darkness Shines (talk) 20:17, 27 March 2013 (UTC)

that is wp synthesis you cant combine two sources. Baboon43 (talk) 20:20, 27 March 2013 (UTC)
Read WP:SYNTH again, two sources same author. Neither are being combined to create something not present in either source, it is not a synth at all. If I were you I would let this one go. Darkness Shines (talk) 20:28, 27 March 2013 (UTC)

Stop reverting

Hi Baboon43, I have noticed that you kept reverting the "Habesha Page" to a page which had a misleading information.Please provide the reasons why you are doing it so,Thank you. Johnnyleepeter (talk) 00:47, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

"The whole semitic speakers being habesha are incorrect..habesha is exclusively for amhara tigres..... "These came from three main groups: the Amhara, the Tigre (the Habash or Habesha)---both of which speak related Semitic languages and represent the Ethiopian Christian tradition""

Well, The description that you wrote perfectly describes Ethnic Gurage, therefore Gurage must be added in the article.It had never been doubted. Guragigna is related to Amharic and Tigringa languages.It can NOT be exclusively to Amhara, Tigre. There are also many sources that support my Argument.Don't cut out parts, even the source that you used says "Shoans" which includes Gurage. Gurage doesn't belong to "southern" that should be very clear.I can't argue about the other ethnics that were mentioned in the "Habesha Article" because i don't have enough information.it would also be nice if you tell me if you are Ethiopian,so that i won't have to explain some basic staffs that many Ethiopians know.Thank you.Johnnyleepeter (talk) 02:57, 27 June 2013 (UTC)

The whole semitic speakers being habesha are incorrect..habesha is exclusively for amhara tigres..... "These came from three main groups: the Amhara, the Tigre (the Habash or Habesha)---both of which speak related Semitic languages and represent the Ethiopian Christian tradition" [1] Baboon43 (talk) 02:38, 19 June 2013 (UTC)

"its not about relation to the language..the habesha (abyssinian) refers to the amhara and tigray & then broadly anyone in the horn..you said the above description fits perfectly with ethnic gurage when that is incorrect..the gurage dont represent ethiopian christian tradition infact there's more muslims then christian gurages. im not from ethiopia but i have done enough research of that region.as explained "Habesha. A self-descriptive cultural definition derived from "Abyssinia", today applied to the members of the Tigrinya ethno-linguistic group, as well as Tigrinya- and Amharic-speaking Chritstians in Ethiopia"."

Baboon43 stop giving a misleading information,don't revert it back for no reason.You are basically saying that Habesha means Christian,which is wrong if that's what Habesha is then Tigray and Amhara Muslims are not habesha and the whole Christians of the world would be Habesha therefore Habesha does NOT mean Christian, Habesha is NOT a religion.You are confusing what Habesha is in the first place, Habesha have a lot to do with language,even the source that you provided says that "Tigrinya- and Amharic-SPEAKING" which means it is in relation to the language. Habesha are the ethnics of Ethoipia/Eritrea that have Axumite ancestry.You can't say Tigray are Habesha and then Gurage is not Habesha when the origin of Gurage itself is the Axumite empire."Amhara, Tigrais, and Gurages Speak semetic languages and Are considered to be descendants of Southern Arabian Conquerors,who trace their Ancestry back to Ancient (Queen of Sheba,) Moses and King Solomon.Whereas Tigrais still live in the area of the Ancient Aksum kingdom, the Amharas and Gurages have expanded inland.The Semitic-speaking Axumites, or Habash sometimes Amharic~ Abesha, አበሻ `ābešā; (Abyssinians), had their capital city, Aksum,In the western part of the province of Tigray."[1]Johnnyleepeter (talk) 21:32, 10 July 2013 (UTC)

What do you mean by "gurage are not descendent from axumite empire"? Another source for " Amharas, Tigrais, and Gurages speak Semitic languages and are considered to be descendants of southern Arabian conquerors, who trace their ancestry back to Moses and King Solomon. Whereas Tigrais still live in the area of the ancient Aksum kingdom, the Amharas and Gurages have expanded inland."[2] "According to the historian Paul B. Henze, their origins are explained by traditions of a military expedition to the south during the last years of the Aksumite Empire, which left military colonies that eventually became isolated from both northern Ethiopia and each other."[3] Your argument is baseless and nonsense,so stop removing it.Johnnyleepeter (talk) 19:45, 11 July 2013 (UTC)

"provide RS that states gurage are habesha" what an absurd statement is that? the "Habesha Page" says "The term Habesha (Ge'ez: ሐበሻ Ḥabaśā, Amharic (H)ābešā, Tigrinya: ? Ḥābešā; Arabic: الحبشة ‎ al-Ḥabašah) refers to the South Semitic-speaking group of peoples whose cultural, linguistic, and in certain cases, ancestral origins trace back to the Axumite Empire and the kingdom known as Dʿmt (usually vocalized Diʿamat)." Based on this statement habesha are the people that speak the south Semitic languages that are related and that trace back their ancestral origins back to the Axumite Empire so does Gurages speak a Semitic language (FYI from Geez very closely related to Amharic and Tigrinya) and also trace back their ancestry back to the Axumite empire; i have provided a source for that.This explains it well, just because its not worded exactly the way you want it, doesn't make your argument correct.you are contradicting with the definition of habesha on the article itself. Baboon43 you seem to have some kind of political agenda,what ever your reason is for Removing it; you haven't made a clear argument and you are distorting information.removing it again is unreasonable and it is vandalism.

You have been blocked indefinitely from editing for problems with edit warring and incivility, and for showing an unwillingness to change your behaviour. In a discussion on the administrators' noticeboard, there was a consensus that this behaviour warranted a block of indefinite duration. However, the block may be lifted if you can convincingly demonstrate that you are willing to respect community norms, including but not limited to those on edit warring and civility. You may appeal this block by adding the following text below this notice: {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}. However, you should read the guide to appealing blocks first.  — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 02:20, 26 July 2013 (UTC)

Baboon43, given the consensus at AN, I doubt any single admin is willing to lift your block quickly. I suggest you appeal through WP:BASC instead.

Decline reason:

That doesn't even begin to address the reason for your block. You should take some time to read WP:GAB before you even consider requesting another unblock. Jauerbackdude?/dude. 04:49, 27 July 2013 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first, then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page until your block has expired.

Baboon43, you're blocked by the community because of the issues raised in the RFC/U. Indeed, if you had addressed all of those issues during the RFC, then you would not have ever become blocked. In order to formulate a block request that would pass a snowball's chance in being accepted, you would therefore need to line-by-line address every single issue that was raised in the RFC. As already noted, no individual admin will be able to unblock you because this is a community-imposed block. By the way, saying "the RFC/U was wrong" clearly is not going to help - the community has determined that everything in the RFC was 90%+ correct, and as such, valid. As per WP:GAB, you need to accept those issues, explain those issues, recognize the anti-community nature of those issues, and show the steps you'll take to ensure those issues will never (and I do mean never) happen again. (✉→BWilkins←✎) 00:51, 28 July 2013 (UTC)

i dont recall those ani participants entirely "the community" seeing over half were canvassed thru the rfc and then again to ani..can you tell me where i have said the rfc is wrong?? note sockpuppets have begun to attack my articles on watchlist ex; Abdullah al-Harari. based on the rfc participation guideline, a line by line address is not necessary [4]. ill request another unblock so i can address the so called "issues" at dispute resolution. can an admin also tell dusti to stop posting on my page since he still wont stop. Baboon43 (talk) 01:44, 28 July 2013 (UTC)
Hi. To be frank, I don't think you'll be unblocked in order to go to WP:DR, as others have said this is your chance at dispute resolution. If you want to be unblocked you have to convince the administrators by adressing the issues raised earlier here, not on some other page. The only thing that will eventually happen if you keep posting unblock requests similar to the ones you've done is that you will end up loosing your talkpage privileges. If you don't want to request unblocks here, you can try via WP:UTRS. Bjelleklang - talk 09:26, 28 July 2013 (UTC)
whats the use of talkpage privileges if i cant even edit an article? i want to address it at WP:DR because there's a much wider audience in that venue. where are you saying i should address the issues on my talk or in the unblock box? Baboon43 (talk) 19:39, 28 July 2013 (UTC)
We already went via WP:DR; that's what an WP:RFC/U is for, if you didn't notice. Check WP:CONDUCTDISPUTE. Dispute resolution completed, it resulted in the community going to WP:AN to enact a community ban, the correct route to go per WP:CBAN. If you would take five minutes to actually read site policy, this would be clear to you already. You have been given an indefinite block per WP:INDEF. If you feel you should be unblocked for any reason, then as you have been told multiple times, take it to WP:UTRS. Asking for an unblock for the purposes of opening the discussion again with a "wider audience" simply comes off as an attempt to get around the block. MezzoMezzo (talk) 10:37, 30 July 2013 (UTC)
