Page protection[edit]

@ CambridgeBayWeather. Re your recent ban on certain editors on the Bain family murders page for edit warring, you might want to consider placing a ban on one other editor who was also engaged in this - Akld guy. He conducted a three week edit war over five words I was trying to add to the page here. He has a history of aggressive editing and making personal comments about other editors. See these recent concerns on his Talk page Hey, you need to calm down, bud and Please stop. Histrange (talk) 19:51, 2 November 2016 (UTC)

Edit war Bain article[edit]

The problem is that I cite a reliable source and Histrange removes my citing saying it is not a reliable source. He is wrong. The book I cite is Mask of Sanity by James McNeish and the publisher is David Ling Publishing. I have pointed this out to Histrange on the talk page. Hopefully he will not delete my latest edit. He [I am presuming male] is a newcomer to the David Bain talk page and he never gets a consensus to edit that article yet he goes ahead and edits it regardless. I would suggest he should be banned from editing because of his disruptive behaviour.Mr Maggoo (talk) 20:06, 2 November 2016 (UTC)

I linked to Wikipedia reliable sources on the David Bain talk page yesterday so as to ensure that Histrange is well aware that Mask of Sanity is a reliable source. Should he delete my citing again I suggest he should be banned.

From the Wikipedia reliable source page. Editors may also use material from reliable non-academic sources, particularly if it appears in respected mainstream publications. Other reliable sources include:

University-level textbooks Books published by respected publishing houses Magazines Journals Mainstream newspapers.

That means that Mask of Sanity is a reliable source as it was published by a respectable publishing house.Mr Maggoo (talk) 22:31, 1 November 2016 (UTC)

About David Ling, publisher of Mask of Sanity. David Ling was a director of educational and general multinational publishing companies where he worked for nearly twenty years before establishing David Ling Publishing in 1992.

An active member and former long-time councillor of the Publishers Association of New Zealand (PANZ), in 2011 he was awarded Honorary Life Membership for his services to the industry.Mr Maggoo (talk) 22:35, 1 November 2016 (UTC)Mr Maggoo (talk) 20:15, 2 November 2016 (UTC)

The problem is 100% Histrange. He edits disruptively, obsessively, obtusely, and without consensus, to promote his narrow-minded POV. Given a free hand, he will single-handedly turn the Bain article into a one-sided propaganda piece. He has been warned before, as is visible on his talk page, which he ignores totally, and he is awaiting a behaviour investigation[1]. His confidence and totalitarian style, out of character for a newcomer, suggests return of a banned editor - most probably turtletop, who has a reputation for returning time and time again under new identities on message boards and blogs to obsessively promote Bain's "innocence". Other editors were simply restoring the status quo until consensus could be established. The correct solution would be to permanently ban Histrange. There is no reasoning with such a person. DiscoStuart (talk) 22:42, 2 November 2016 (UTC)
Histrange, Mr Maggoo and DiscoStuart. I don't really do Wikipedia:Dispute resolution which is what you should be looking at. I protected the page to ensure that none of you ended being blocked and could at least attempt to solve the problem. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 01:43, 3 November 2016 (UTC)
I did use the talk page in an attempt to solve the problem Histrange has with me citing Mask of Sanity as a reliable source. Maybe this time he has accepted that he is in the wrong. The problem with Histrange is that he moves the goalposts. First of all he said I should not cite that page because the Crown Prosecutor was only making a throwaway remark. Then he says I should not cite that page in Mask of Sanity because it is not a reliable source. I see DiscoStuart reckons that Histrange might be Turtletop, who has been banned for sockpuppetry. As a matter of interest , I was wondering about that myself. Certainly some of the phrases Histrange uses are very similar to those used by Turtletop.Mr Maggoo (talk) 02:05, 3 November 2016 (UTC)

Please correct the names of places in Module:Iraqi insurgency detailed map with hashtags[edit]

Someone has added a hashtag "#" in front of link names of various settlements. In other cases, they have just named the links to "#no". The links are for directing a user to the article by that name. When the hashtag is added before any name, it just directs the user back to the template. And if you add "no" without the hashtag it will instead direct you to the article of no, with the hashtag it will just direct you back to the template. In my search, I think I have identified 48 such cases with this problem. According to Wikipedia "#" is used for sections of an article. Using them shows the whole link of the template when clicking on/touching a settlement along with the "#" and the name of the settlement next to the "#" instead of just that settlement's name. And opening it will direct you back to the template. I request you to please correct it as they are creating a problem. I requested the other users but no one seems to care, that is why I have requested you. Thank you. 117.220.19.191 (talk) 11:57, 6 November 2016 (UTC)

Astonishingly mild block[edit]

Does the deletion of editors posts in an AfD discussion, and their replacement by fake posts that make those editors appear to be saying something completely different from what they had actually said [1], merit a block of only 31 hours? This individual should have been blocked for at least a month I think, and banned for life for ever again contributing to an AfD - but instead he is allowed a day later to be back at the same AfD! [2] Tiptoethrutheminefield (talk) 16:54, 6 November 2016 (UTC)

Take it to ANI then. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 03:07, 7 November 2016 (UTC)
I was asking for your reasoning for giving a 31 hour block for what seems to be a very serious offense. If this block is in line with guidelines, what is the point of taking it to ANI? If it is not, should you not amend your initial decision yourself? Tiptoethrutheminefield (talk) 03:22, 7 November 2016 (UTC)
It was a first offence and they stopped. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 03:26, 7 November 2016 (UTC)
And the seriousness of the offense or end goal of the offense does not matter if it is a first offense? Here is another first time offender, Matreeks [3], who created a sock [4] in order to place fake "keep" posts and comments in an AfD, thus essentially doing the same thing as AManInWikipedia did - yet that editor gets blocked indefinitely (correctly, I think). Tiptoethrutheminefield (talk) 15:22, 8 November 2016 (UTC)
Tiptoethrutheminefield. There is a bit of a difference. Anyway, what is it you want? CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 23:38, 8 November 2016 (UTC)
AManInWikipedia seems to be a single issue editor, so length of block doesn't really make much difference for such an editor. But I think he should have been indefinitely blocked from participating in AfD discussions, if such a restriction were possible, because the infraction was so serious - worse than Matreeks imo because it was more than just fabricating some "keep" posts using a sock. AManInWikipedia was actually altering the opinions given by other editors to make them fit AManInWikipedia's pov. Tiptoethrutheminefield (talk) 02:57, 9 November 2016 (UTC)

Possibly is but the original account was never blocked so there really isn't a problem. The new article is different enough from the original that a speedy isn't possible. It would require a second AfD. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 06:12, 8 November 2016 (UTC)

PC protection on Barney's Big Surprise[edit]

Why was the PC protection settings reset? Why not simultaneous indef PC protection and temporary semi-protection, which is the sole protection for the article?

New 10,000 Challenge for Canada[edit]

Hi, Wikipedia:WikiProject Canada/The 10,000 Challenge is up and running based on Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge for the UK which has currently produced over 2200 article improvements and creations. If you'd like to see large scale quality improvements happening for Canada like The Africa Destubathon, which has produced over 1300 articles in 3 weeks, sign up on the page. The idea will be an ongoing national editathon/challenge for Canada but fuelled by a contest such as The North America Destubathon to really get articles on every province and subject mass improved. I would like some support from Canadian wikipedians here to get the Challenge off to a start with some articles to make doing a Destubathon worthwhile!

A new user right for New Page Patrollers[edit]

Hi CambridgeBayWeather.

A new user group, New Page Reviewer, has been created in a move to greatly improve the standard of new page patrolling. The user right can be granted by any admin at PERM. It is highly recommended that admins look beyond the simple numerical threshold and satisfy themselves that the candidates have the required skills of communication and an advanced knowledge of notability and deletion. Admins are automatically included in this user right.

It is anticipated that this user right will significantly reduce the work load of admins who patrol the performance of the patrollers. However,due to the complexity of the rollout, some rights may have been accorded that may later need to be withdrawn, so some help will still be needed to some extent when discovering wrongly applied deletion tags or inappropriate pages that escape the attention of less experienced reviewers, and above all, hasty and bitey tagging for maintenance. User warnings are available here but very often a friendly custom message works best.

If you have any questions about this user right, don't hesitate to join us at WT:NPR. (Sent to all admins).MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:47, 15 November 2016 (UTC)

Removal of Disputed factual accuracy and POV templates[edit]

Hello!
May I ask you to keep an eye on the following pages: PFC CSKA Sofia, FC CSKA 1948 Sofia and PFC Litex Lovech. There is an ongoing dispute which is unlikely to get resolved without outside help because the two main viewpoints are mutually exclusive and neither party is willing to accept the arguments of the other. That's why I'm going to ask for formal mediation, as another admin advised me. Until then, I think that the most civilized solution is everybody involved in the discussion to refrain from edits that will cause further controversy and use templates to express opinion. However, one of the users seems is unhappy with the mediation and is trying to cause a new series of edit wars. Even though I disagree with big parts of the articles and I think there is a strong bias, I'm ready to accept the current versions to stay until the mediation process is over but I don't think that relevant templates should be removed just because someone doesn't like them. Also, I'm continuously harassed, threatened and hounded by another user who reverted almost all my edits in the last 2 months. Who should I ask for assistance? --Ivo (talk) 23:18, 15 November 2016 (UTC)

BG89. There is Wikipedia:Dispute resolution and Wikipedia:Dispute resolution requests. In this case it sounds like Wikipedia:Neutral point of view/Noticeboard might be the one. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 23:33, 15 November 2016 (UTC)
I have already explaned the user to either discuss it on the talk page, or start a Dispute resolution. I won't start it myself simply because I am trying to keep the current versions of the articles from getting them disrupted with controversial and false information, he is the one who should have started the discussion. Also I am removing the templates, because the user tries to make as if something is wrong with the information overall, which is not the case, he is the one who is unhappy on how the information is written, which is his personal opinion only. I tried to explane him why the information he tries to insert is unacceptsable, but he simply refuses to make any progression on the topic, for reasons known, and accuses me for "harassing" him when I tell him why. I am really tired of following BG89 and preventing him from re-enteting the controversial information as he is being extremely aggressive over the topic and constantly tries to manipulate and invert my words and actions so that they can support his oppinion. This is why I gave up trying to solve the matter on the talk page - simply no progression can be made over it.--The TV Boy (talk · contribs) 04:51, 16 November 2016 (UTC)
TV Boy, Five users took part in the discussion and three of them, one of whom it's me, think that there are many things wrong. The same is valid for the Bulgarian Wikipedia where 11 users took part in the discussion. You who support the current version and Laveol who supports changes are writing on the English talk page as well. Among the remaining 9 users, 6 support my view: Миньор, Атанас Димов, Abvvba, Станислав Николаев, GOOR, Arise13 and 3 support yours: Скроч, Rebelheartous, Dino Rediferro. When there are two mutually exclusive views and only one of them is presented in the article which in fact isn't the generally accepted one but quite the contrary and when the the majority of the users involved in the discussion think there is bias and the article lacks neutrality, the templates indicating that there is a serious disagreement is the least that can be done. Of course, you are not expected to ask for mediation. It's me who is calling for that. What I invited you to do is to summarize your position because I'm expected to present both views.
@CambridgeBayWeather, IMO, we need a case specific approach because some articles are relatively fine and usually just one paragraph is controversial. The events that caused the discussion are described but their interpretation is one-sided. What is in common between these articles is that they are indirectly-related to the issue. The main article has problematic accuracy and neutrality. Could you please tell me which template is appropriate for every article? Here are the articles one by one:
  1. PFC CSKA Sofia is in the center of the discussion. Both its neutrality and accuracy are disputed. One of the parties think that the article should be split into two separate articles. The most controversial part is The Age of Grisha Ganchev which I and the rest who support my view perceive as personal opinion. Also, questionable and self-citing sources.
  2. In 2016–17 PFC CSKA Sofia season is written that the article is about the 68th season of PFC CSKA, a very disputable statement because many(most) think this is not true.
  3. PFC Litex Lovech has one controversial paragraph: Relegation and Merging (2015-). Both the neutrality and the accuracy are disputed. There is a strong contradiction between the text and the sources.
  4. FC CSKA 1948 Sofia is indirectly related to the discussion. 19 July 2016: Foundation is the problematic paragraph. It is misleading and contains unsourced and IMO wrong information.
  5. Eternal derby of Bulgarian football's only problem is result of the assumption that CSKA-Sofia is the successor of CSKA which is the essence of the discussion.

Able to decline 10 requests for page protections without blinking .... not unfazed at having to reply to an avalanche of location map templates wanting protecting ... able to knock down backlogs in a single bound .... it's SUPER ADMIN! Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 15:06, 29 November 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for the barnstar. I protected a few before I remembered that I was not supposed to protect templates with only 100-200 uses. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 18:46, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

The person who has been Vandalising the Casper (film) has done it again, can you please blocked the page so it won't continue. DonJakes (talk) 06:01, 2 December 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for the barnstar. Give the page a few more days to see if they return or it was a one off. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 06:08, 2 December 2016 (UTC)

Protecting subpages[edit]

Per here, I think the bot refused to archive because we didn't protect User:Gestrid/Editnotice (which I've just done). For future reference, you can use Twinkle to mass-protect. E.g. go to Special:PrefixIndex/User:Gestrid/ and click on TW > P-Batch, choose your options and boom, all are protected in seconds. You can do the same for deletion (D-batch). Both options appear on any wiki page and relevant Special pages. Best MusikAnimal talk 00:42, 3 December 2016 (UTC)

Thanks. I knew about the deleting one but not the protecting. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 03:24, 3 December 2016 (UTC)

Cambridge Bay Weather[edit]

Hi Friend, It me Norsemanmick form Edmonton, long time no talk. How is the weather up there? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Norsemanmick (talkcontribs) 05:02, 3 December 2016 (UTC)

Norsemanmick. Hi, it has been a while. It's been very mild up here with temperatures about 10C above the normals. But it looks to go back to normal in a few days. How about in Edmonton? CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 05:07, 3 December 2016 (UTC)

Well, it is a balmy -1C at the moment here in Edmonton. Today was lovely with sunny skies. THere is trace amount of snow on the ground and the roads are slick as the city has not been out salting or sanding too much.Norsemanmick (talk) 05:01, 4 December 2016 (UTC)

It's been cloudy here for days and we have had three days of nonstop snow. Even if there was no clouds there would still be no sun to to the polar night. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 06:07, 4 December 2016 (UTC)

That Polar night is amazing, but I spoke too soon about the weather here in Edmonton, we have just encountered a cold snap, -17 this morning and it is apparently going to stay for a week or so. Still not that cold, but from where we were its a fairly dramatic change. CheersNorsemanmick (talk) 14:25, 5 December 2016 (UTC)

That's OK. We dropped to -22 and are having a blizzard. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 14:32, 5 December 2016 (UTC)

Breitbart News[edit]

Hi. I was in the process of editing Breitbart News when you fully protected it. Could you please assist by implementing the edit request here: Talk:Breitbart News#Protected Edit Request the purpose of which is to improve the references. Another editor noted that some references do not support the material. Apparently bad references were added to derail the RfC. Thank you.- MrX 00:34, 4 December 2016 (UTC)

The issue had been resolved. Protection was unnecessary and unwarranted. --John Navas (talk) 15:23, 4 December 2016 (UTC)

Admin related question[edit]

Hi,

if a user commits 3RR meanwhile he is reported and his case is investigated in two different ANI noticeboards (incidents and edit warring) simultaneously, it is needed to report in a different (this time the third) incident the fresh breaking of 3RR or it is not necessary? Thanks for your answer!(KIENGIR (talk) 15:35, 4 December 2016 (UTC))

If one of the original reports was still open you could add it there or open another report. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 16:06, 4 December 2016 (UTC)

Time distortion effect[edit]

Hello CBW. I hope you are well. I saw this and I have to say that I have had a week or three in my life that felt like they lasted forever :-) Cheers to you and I hope that you have a pleasant week. MarnetteD|Talk 17:02, 4 December 2016 (UTC)

MarnetteD. Thanks. I'm fine, hope your are too. Given that I'm off to work in a couple of hours and a blizzard is coming it should be interesting. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 03:11, 5 December 2016 (UTC)
