November 2011[edit]

Welcome and thank you for your contributions. Your test on the page Punta Brava worked, and it has been reverted or removed. If you would like to experiment further, please use the sandbox instead. Please take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you. Drmies (talk) 20:09, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

This is your only warning; if you vandalize Wikipedia again, as you did at Punta Brava, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. Please do not hijack articles. If you're the same editor as User:Ianleggat, now is the time to stop using both accounts. Drmies (talk) 20:16, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

Request reason:

I have been vandalized by user DMRIES as I have attempted to repair and complete the entries for my client PUNTA BRAVA GOLF CLUB with factual reference information. The content posted by DRMIES is not verifiable and is not the accurate content with respect to PUNTA BRAVA, Mexico. I request immediate reinstatement of my account and restoration of our valid entries and administrative intervention to prevent future changes to his entry by user DRMIES. Please contact me via (Redacted)

Decline reason:

This is not even close to how Wikipedia works. Point 1: WP:COI specifies that users agree not to edit on topics with which they have a personal or professional connection - so editing for your "client" is immediately right out. Point 2: Whether or not someone else is editing badly or including unverifiable information has absolutely no bearing on your own editing - see WP:NOTTHEM. Your actions are not excused just because someone else may or may not have been behaving badly. Point 3: There are channels for handling disruptive editing by other users (see WP:Dispute resolution). An unblock template is a place for you to confront the reasons you have been blocked and clarify that you do not need to be blocked because you will not keep doing what you were blocked for. And point 4: You were blocked as a suspected sockpuppet, which you have not addressed at all. - Vianello (Talk) 20:38, 7 November 2011 (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.

Request reason:

I am NOT a sockpuppet for anyone. I did not understand that i was not allowed to post on the topic of Punta Brava because they are my client.

Decline reason:

That would address point 4, then. The problem is, that only addresses point 4. It still leaves the conflict of interest issues. - Vianello (Talk) 20:46, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

I would add that as the golf course is not yet finished, it is a bit too soon for it to have achieved the notability required to be shown. Also, that on Wikipedia one does not take over an existing article with a desired title to add information which is totally irrelevant to the existing article.

Request reason:

The corrections and additions i attempted to Punta Brava are all factual and have linked references. What is Wikipedia for then if not for correct information? Please explain. Thank you. I will review and attempt to report item 3.

Decline reason:

I am declining your unblock request because it does not address the reason for your block, or because it is inadequate for other reasons. To be unblocked, you must convince the reviewing administrator(s) that
  • the block is not necessary to prevent damage or disruption to Wikipedia, or
  • the block is no longer necessary because you
    1. understand what you have been blocked for,
    2. will not continue to cause damage or disruption, and
    3. will make useful contributions instead.
Please read the guide to appealing blocks for more information. TNXMan 21:36, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

Comment

Reviewing admin, please see Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Barrygrimes. Favonian (talk) 21:38, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

OK, kind of mood as Tnxman himself just declined the request. Favonian (talk) 21:39, 7 November 2011 (UTC)
Just a note, though, that this decline was not based on any sort of CU data- rather, the request did not address the reasons for blocking, etc. TNXMan 21:48, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

Baffled as to why the sockpupper investigation, I believe he is simply a newbie who couldn't create a separate article on it...♦ Dr. Blofeld 12:21, 11 November 2011 (UTC)

Punta Brava Golf Club[edit]

Whilst I think you approached the Punta Brava article in the worst way possible by getting into an edit war and were wrong about hijacking the article with another on top of it I do see that the content was in good faith and you were trying help wikipedia with info about this notable club development, even if it is COI. I created an article on it. I think it is notable enough now to have an article given coverage on it.♦ Dr. Blofeld 11:26, 11 November 2011 (UTC)

Request reason:

I was unfairly targeted by biased editors for our attempts to correct the PUNTA BRAVA entry with correct and correlating information a few years ago...

Decline reason:

This is a pretty old block, however it seems as though you don't understand why you were blocked, and what you can do to prevent being blocked in the future. Also, you say our attempts, which suggests to me that this is a shared account, which is also not permitted. Since all you are doing is blaming other people for your being blocked four years ago, I see no reason to accept. kelapstick(bainuu) 19:43, 18 October 2015 (UTC)
