Huh?[edit]

As is well known, I think Trump's an idiot and his policies an affront to decency and common sense, but how in the world do you come up with delete (or, indeed, anything else) as the outcome to WP:Miscellany_for_deletion/User:Broter/Ban_on_Muslim_immigration? While we're not supposed to call other editors assholes, if they want to advertise themselves as assholes, I really don't see why we should be stopping them. EEng 14:39, 29 May 2017 (UTC)

Ping. EEng 18:01, 8 June 2017 (UTC)
EEng#s. I'm sorry I thought you were pissed off at me and that this was a rhetorical question. I think that policy allowed for the deletion. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 19:20, 8 June 2017 (UTC)
I wasn't angry at you; when I'm angry at you you'll know it. I was, however, annoyed at what I consider (and, as you saw in the ensuing discussion, just about everyone else considers) your overanxious interpretation of BLP. Anyway, all of that happened after I left my OP here.
You say "policy allowed for deletion"; that's just another way of saying "I decided it should be deleted" without really explaining anything. Since when do we delete userboxes that express run-of-the-mill political beliefs, even ones we (as individual editors) might consider foolish or even offensive? We certainly don't delete userboxes that express things like "I believe in protecting the rights of immigrants" or something like that. I really want to know how policy calls for one to be deleted and the other left to remain. Certainly nothing explaining that was offered in the deletion debate, which brings me back to the question of how you could have arrived at the close you made. Seems to me that at best it's no consensus. EEng 16:50, 9 June 2017 (UTC)
EEng#s It was covered in Wikipedia:Userboxes#Content restrictions. And if you want to MfD any userbox, including the ones on my talk page, I will certainly give proper consideration. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 17:18, 9 June 2017 (UTC)
I have no interest in having any of your userboxes deleted, not that I've looked at them. You are applying the same overbroad interpretation that earned you such criticism in the other matter on which our paths recently crossed (see User_talk:EEng#BLP_violation_at_WP:ANI). User pages, and userboxes in particular, have always been allowed more latitude in the expression of social and political views than would be acceptable elsewhere in the project, and by applying this interpretation you're simply going to alienate a succession of editors for no good reason. Pinging a couple of level heads who may be able to explain this to you better than I've been able to: Tryptofish, David Eppstein, Mandruss. EEng 18:02, 9 June 2017 (UTC)
The existence of bad stuff does not justify the retention of other bad stuff, and we can't fix everything at the same time; that's part of the idea behind WP:OSE. Had I known of the MfD discussion I would have !voted Delete per Wikipedia:Userboxes#Content restrictions bullet 3: "Userboxes must not be inflammatory or divisive." (emphasis theirs). If I became aware of an MfD for a userbox on the other side of the same inflammatory and divisive issue, I would likewise !vote Delete there. What's inflammatory and divisive is necessarily a judgment call, but this case seems clear enough; you don't get much more inflammatory and divisive than this issue.
The close doesn't seem improper to me. It merely demonstrated that consensus is about strength of arguments, not numbers.
So much for my "level head"! ―Mandruss  18:28, 9 June 2017 (UTC)
Perhaps I should have said blockhead?[FBDB] But your opinion is valued anyway. Now, what about the userbox here: "In support of the Karen National Union and their ongoing struggle against genocide." Is that OK because fighting genocide is a "good thing", while a Muslim ban is a "bad thing" (and you know how I actually feel about that fool Trump and his policies). Pinging Blade of the Northern Lights, since I'm dragging his userbox in, it being the most saintly one I could think of. EEng 19:30, 9 June 2017 (UTC) And no, calling Trump a fool in this discussion is not a BLP violation.)
EEng#s Fixing your ping to The Blade of the Northern Lights. And no I didn't see that remark as a BLP as you were expressing your opinion. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 19:38, 9 June 2017 (UTC)
If I became aware of an MfD for that one, I would probably !vote Keep because it is not sufficiently inflammatory or divisive to be deleted. Karen National Union is not a frequent topic on the home page of The New York Times, and I would include it on the long list of things that I'm too busy to care about. But I don't care to get any deeper into hypotheticals. ―Mandruss  19:47, 9 June 2017 (UTC)
Well, I'm going to push the point just a bit more. Certainly this is in the headlines:
Flag of Palestine.svg This user supports the independence of Palestine.
OK? Not OK? EEng 19:55, 9 June 2017 (UTC)
I'm responding to the ping. It's difficult for me to give a clear opinion, because I cannot see the now-deleted userbox for myself. I've always found CambridgeBayWeather to be a reasonable and clueful colleague. I've read the MfD, and I would probably have relisted it for further discussion instead of making a decision one way or the other, but that's me. I think that the example about Palestine that EEng put here is perfectly fine, and I would feel very negatively about any proposal to delete it. Speaking in general (and of course the devil is in the details), I tend to believe that editors should be given wide berth on what userboxes they have on their own userpages, except that this should not go so far as to permit anything that is intended to insult or defame other users or non-public eye non-editors. Expressions of political opinion, if volunteered freely, should be permitted. --Tryptofish (talk) 23:43, 9 June 2017 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Tryptofish: Thanks for taking the trouble, and I think you see my concern. The userbox being discussed in the MfD linked in my OP here said (from memory): "This editor supports a ban on Muslim immigration". EEng 23:57, 9 June 2017 (UTC)

Thanks. Oh, bleep. My gut reaction is a very strong WP:IDONTLIKEIT, so I'm having to check my gut reaction. It steps right up to the line of what I described as insulting others. But no, we should not censor that. I think a useful test is what we would do if it said, instead, this editor opposes such a ban. Of course, that's technically a violation of the rule that boxes should support instead of oppose things, but I would make an exception given the context. I doubt anyone would have brought that one to MfD, and we should not try to have it both ways. --Tryptofish (talk) 00:04, 10 June 2017 (UTC)

Protection removal request for Tekmill[edit]

Hi CambridgeBayWeather, I noticed that Tekmill was create protected by you on 1st December 2016. I'm requesting you to kindly remove the protection as I want to create a page for him. He is a notable artist and since December 2016, has received several coverage articles in Turkish media. Some of the publishers covering him are Olay newspaper, Londra newspaper and Avrupa newspaper. I can provide you the hard copies upon request. Thank you, Tekmillion (talk) 21:12, 29 May 2017 (UTC)

Tekmillion. A better idea would be to create Draft:Tekmill and see if that passes. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 21:52, 29 May 2017 (UTC)

Vivid Entertainment[edit]

Before you put protection on the article entitled Vivid Entertainment for alleged edit warring, did you read the talk section concerning the portion of the article that Hullaballoo Wolfowitz keeps removing? He cites a different reason each time he vandalizes the segment regarding historical Vivid Girls, and refuses to engage in constructive discussion, actually ANY discussion. First he cited the segment as unsourced, but the segment was clearly well sourced. Then he claimed it was publicity. Then he claimed it was merely a laundry list. Wikipedia has so many instances of lists of historical persons. He has NEVER claimed the information re "Vivid Girls" was inaccurate or irrelevant. He is just personally opposed to having the information in the article. Furthermore, I have NEVER seen any editor have so many complaints against him, all of which he and you administrators IGNORE. He is one of the reasons I would never contribute any money to Wikipedia. Anonymous editors without any formal knowledge of the subject and editing ruin so many good articles. I thought you would at least review and contact the parties, but instead you just protected the article without good cause. Under what authority did YOU protect the article? 2601:989:4200:BAA2:5912:EBF7:708A:C30A (talk) 05:37, 5 June 2017 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Pizza Pockets box.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Pizza Pockets box.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in section F5 of the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 17:35, 8 June 2017 (UTC)

Protection of Malcolm Nance[edit]

Thank you for the protection of Malcolm Nance.

But now I can't edit the page to improve it.

What we have here is not a content dispute, but a few editors violating WP:BLP, against consensus, to engage in disruptive editing.

There's gotta be a better way to deal with that than full-protecting the page.

Maybe you could add

{{Ds/editnotice|1=1RR|topic=ap}}

to the talk page?

And could you also add it to Template:Editnotices/Page/Malcolm Nance, as can be seen for example, at Template:Editnotices/Page/Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections ?

Sagecandor (talk) 23:53, 9 June 2017 (UTC)

Sagecandor That sounds like a better idea. Done. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 10:45, 10 June 2017 (UTC)

Unidentified file[edit]

Greetings! A user here has been adding an original research caption to a skull, whose file source does not specify the ethnicity/clan or place of exhumation of the cranium. It just indicates in the original Hausa that it is kasusuwan mutum [1], which translates as "the bones of a man" [2]. The file was just renamed accordingly for that reason [3]. Can you please therefore remove this unidentified file? Kind Regards-- Soupforone (talk) 15:35, 18 June 2017 (UTC)

Soupforone Someone reverted already. I have warned the user about OR and opened a section on the article talk page. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 16:18, 18 June 2017 (UTC)
Soupforone The place of exhumation is Berbera, Somaliland as mentioned in source [4] "The research team of science have used the shovel to evacuate the tomb and buried many people in the town of Barbera in Somaliland.", as for the ethnicity/clan it clearly states they were Isaaq "But these people are ethnic Isaaq." Your edit warring and labelling as 'unidentified skull' was unwarranted, and your request for removal of categories and replacement with 'fossils' is particularly disruptive [5]. --Kzl55 (talk) 16:59, 18 June 2017 (UTC)

Requesting unprotection of Cricket World Cup[edit]

Hello CambridgeBayWeather, hope you are doing well. As you were the last admin to protect Cricket World Cup, hence I would like to request you to please remove the indefinite move protection of the article from sysop to none because this protection was applied several years ago and is no longer required and necessary. Thank you. TheGeneralUser (talk) 18:38, 18 June 2017 (UTC)

Hello Thomas, protection is applied to any page to stop disruption to it. In this case, there is no such disruption and hence it is not required. TheGeneralUser (talk) 18:56, 18 June 2017 (UTC)
@TheGeneralUser: I know why pages are protected, unlike you I also know that there are users who love to move cricket pages, and add ICC in front of the name, even though the common name is, and always has been, just "Cricket World Cup" (with Special:Contributions/MOTORAL1987 being one). So the only reason Cricket World Cup still has the name that is in common use, is that editors can't move it... - Tom | Thomas.W talk 20:07, 18 June 2017 (UTC)
I do agree with your reasoning, but consensus can change and every page can't be move protected in the same way. Protection should not be an endorsement for a current name or page version. TheGeneralUser (talk) 20:24, 18 June 2017 (UTC)
As far as I can tell all of the many page moves that have taken place over the past few days, all adding ICC in front of the name, have been undiscussed moves, the kind of moves that move protection is intended to protect against... - Tom | Thomas.W talk 20:33, 18 June 2017 (UTC)
{{u|TheGeneralUser}] as Thomas.W says WP:Requested moves would have been good place to start. You could have also asked Nev1 who was the original protecting admin and still active. Until they express an opinion I will not change it. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 20:56, 18 June 2017 (UTC)
TheGeneralUser CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 16:06, 19 June 2017 (UTC)
Thank you for the ping CambridgeBayWeather. Sorry for the slow reply, it's a while since I logged in. On the whole indefinite protection of any kind should be used sparingly, and I admit if a new user hadn't recently renamed a few articles without discussion I'd be more inclined to remove the protection. However, at the moment my feeling is that move protection is appropriate as the page gets a lot of traffic (getting between 40,000 and 90,000 readers a month in what might be considered the off-season) and it means that anyone who wants to move it has to go through the requested moves process and gain consensus. Nev1 (talk) 10:58, 26 June 2017 (UTC)
Nev1. Thanks. That was my felling as well. I'll leave it and if the user starts a discussion and consensus is to move then that's different. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 14:08, 26 June 2017 (UTC)

Request that you vacate wrongful block[edit]

Hi there. A while back you blocked me for allegedly using a sockpuppet. I don't know what the basis for your mistaken assumption was, but I have never used another account nor edited while logged out. Thus I request you vacate the block, clean out my block log appropriately, and post an apology on my talk page. Thanks. Factchecker_atyourservice 23:51, 28 June 2017 (UTC)

First things first, though. Before you vacate the block and post the apology, I would appreciate if you could point me to anything anywhere on Wikipedia that would explain what actions you took and why. I don't see a link to any discussion and as a matter of fact it appears nobody ever notified me any discussion was taking place. Seems like a rancid abuse of process. Factchecker_atyourservice 23:53, 28 June 2017 (UTC)
Factchecker_atyourservice. I am not sure what you mean by "vacate the block". I can't clean a block log. And what would I apologise for? Also see Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Factchecker atyourservice/Archive. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 03:25, 29 June 2017 (UTC)
What would you apologize for? How about blocking me for somebody else's tomfoolery based on laughable premises? Factchecker_atyourservice 23:14, 29 June 2017 (UTC)

Slim Jxmmi[edit]

Hi,

Noticed you reversed the changes on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slim_Jxmmi. You may be unfamiliar but Slim Jxmmi is one half of Rae Sremmurd and brother of Swae Lee. He is one of the most popular rap group out right now and is responsible for the 2016 smash hit 'Black Beatles'. Further, he will be releasing a solo album in the upcoming months. Please do not remove the page again.

thank you — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sukhvirlam (talkcontribs) 03:39, 1 July 2017 (UTC)

Sukhvirlam. No I didn't, look again. I protected the page and made no edits based on content. Others changed it into a redirect. I will point out that being a member of a group does not in itself confer notability. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 03:49, 1 July 2017 (UTC)

Regarding Recent Full Protection Action[edit]

I noticed that CambridgeBayWeather recently took bold action to WP:Full the article Francesca Ramsey due to the recent content disputes since VidCon. I wanted to suggest that you might consider Full Protection of Anita Sarkeesian. Evidence of the need for this action is here and throughout that pages recent history. Thanks in advance for any consideration! - Sleyece 00:29:53, July 4, 2017 (UTC)

OK. It looks like there is close to consensus on the talk page so just a couple of days. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 00:47, 4 July 2017 (UTC)

Anita Sarkeesian[edit]

Can you please explain why you protected Anita Sarkeesian, a page which had not been edited in nearly 29 hours? Mark Schierbecker (talk) 10:28, 4 July 2017 (UTC)

Mark Schierbecker. It looked like a minor edit war and an incomplete discussion on the talk page. See section above. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 12:35, 4 July 2017 (UTC)
I request that this action be reversed immediately. Full protection is an extreme overreaction to just three reverts. Mark Schierbecker (talk) 00:09, 5 July 2017 (UTC)
Mark Schierbecker. OK but keep an eye on it. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 00:16, 5 July 2017 (UTC)
Thank you! Mark Schierbecker (talk) 00:38, 5 July 2017 (UTC)

Btw, you removed the indefinite page-move protection - {{pp-move-indef}} - that predated your recent protection.... maybe that should be restored? Shearonink (talk) 01:18, 5 July 2017 (UTC)

Malliya Rechana, Kavijanasrayam[edit]

I believe you had blocked me and Abrahmad111 few days back. I have a question. Abrahmad111 is constantly fooling and undoing and removing much older and antique (The Indian Antiquary) research references in order to attribute a poet to his region rather than sticking to the history. I have kept his references (which are mostly a thesis and individual writings unlike The Indian Antiquary) and only removed his unreferenced personal theories but he has been removing all my referenced info to put forth only his theories. Now he removed my content and writes one has to stick to the old style. This fellow creates duplicate pages and vandalizes pages to put forth his theories. He is not able to bear if I keep the theories in chronological order and removes the old theories which do not attribute the work or the poet to his homeplace. Unlike him I am trying to keep both theories but he keeps the newer theories and adds his personal theories as well. What do you advise? I am going to wait for your advise. Thanks SubhashiniIyer (talk) 12:01, 7 July 2017 (UTC)

I am very sorry CambridgeBayWeather, I do not know how else to fix the article. I have added all the historical theories in a balanced chronological manner. Nothing is written in stone about this subject. Some people who are of biased nature are trying to claim the subject to their region without showing the historical debates and the controversial nature of the subject. I will wait and see for now. Please do advise. Thank you SubhashiniIyer (talk) 22:31, 9 July 2017 (UTC)

List of Canadian provincial and territorial symbols[edit]

Hi CambridgeBayWeather. Would you mind checking this edit you made to List of Canadian provincial and territorial symbols? It looks like the three images you removed were all from Commons. -- Marchjuly (talk) 04:30, 9 July 2017 (UTC)

Marchjuly. Thanks. That's strange because when I checked the first time they were the non-free files. Fixed it. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 05:24, 9 July 2017 (UTC)
Non-free images which are continously re-added to an article after they have been removed sometimes starts me thinking in terms of patterns instead of individual edits, especially if the same editor is doing the re-adding. So, when that person deviates from the pattern and actually adds a free image instead, it can be easy for me to just react the same as before unless I remind myself to actually check the file each time. -- Marchjuly (talk) 01:16, 10 July 2017 (UTC)

Hi,
My health is not well at all at the moment. So please excuse my message for being concise and vague. You had not so recently blocked two users for 24h. They never stopped fighting. Now they have escalated to mild personal attacks, and comments about each-other's nations. It is very serious as it is India-Pak.

It seems that I can't find a source for either SMM or SU. I removed it for two reasons. One I can't find anything to source it with and a look at List of airline codes (S) shows that the SMM is for a US based airline called Summit Airlines with a call sign of "SUMMIT-AIR" rather than "SUMMIT". I suspect that the SU was taken from the "Daily Air Traffic Record"s that we use at work and was probably given to us by Nav Canada.

Thank you. (btw: not sure why Wiki keeps kicking me out constantly, and it only shows me as a public IP.). https://www.planespotters.net/airline/Summit-Air https://www.airlines-inform.com/world_airlines/Summit_Air.html http://flysummitair.com/ User:SUrbaniak 2017-07-14T17:59Z
I'm not sure why you get logged out. It used to happen quite often but that was years ago. You could ask at WP:Village pump/Technical as they might know. The Planespotters link may be correct but it might not. I recall that it was not a reliable source for fleet size. Notice that Planespotters has a fleet size of 9 but Transport Canada has 19 aircraft. Not sure about the other link. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 20:07, 14 July 2017 (UTC)

VQuakr. No. Do you want it so you can do it? CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 21:12, 16 July 2017 (UTC)
Sure. Can't say I've done one before, but it looks like step-by-step instructions are available. User:VQuakr/Алфа - Го would work us a userfication target. Thank you! VQuakr (talk) 22:52, 18 July 2017 (UTC)

Can you please give me a good reason why new editors are prohibited from editing this Arab-Israeli conflict related page? Jsnsnsnsnsnsn (talk) 02:18, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

Pat Weisner[edit]

Can you please ensure the page 'Pat Weisner' remains protected from vandalism permanently and not just for a few days.

Can the part about abandoning a car be deleted as it is an incorrect report and was never proven to be correct. Jeandebougett (talk) 09:14, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

Jeandebougett. It's already been fixed, here. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 09:17, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

Can you please lock this again for a longer period to protect from vandalism

Jeandebougett. Articles are not protected unless they actually being vandalised. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 09:21, 25 July 2017 (UTC)

Was vandalised by wizbangboom55 and will be again.

Jeandebougett. That was 10 July. We don't protect over one or two edits. If the page looks like this then protection becomes necessary. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 17:54, 25 July 2017 (UTC)

Protection decline for 2017 Jobar offensive[edit]

Regarding your reasoning that there has not been enough disruptive activity to justify protection I will list all of the disruptive edits. In three days there has been: four removals of sourced info by IP editors [6][7][8][9] (possibly same person, with highly non-neutral edit summaries), one removal by an apparent single-purpose account [10], two additions of unsourced information by two IP editors [11][12] (one being with apparent non-neutral wording). If you are still of the opinion that this isn't enough then I will not push the matter further. Thank you for your time! Cheers! EkoGraf (talk) 10:38, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

EkoGraf. I gave it a months pending changes. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 10:42, 20 July 2017 (UTC)
Thank you! And once again, sorry for the bother. EkoGraf (talk) 12:45, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

Notary[edit]

Hey,

Thanks a lot for protecting the 'Notary' page. Users from Pakistan are making changes to the spelling of Notary to Notry because of this spelling mistake made in court documents submitted in Supreme Court Pakistan related to corruption case against the Prime Minister.

Shahram Jazayeri[edit]

Would you please explain the revert? Pahlevun (talk) 12:46, 24 July 2017 (UTC)

Pahlevun. It's a BLP and you removed several references. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 12:48, 24 July 2017 (UTC)
That's not an adequate explanation. Are you able to prove that these references were legit? Pahlevun (talk) 12:53, 24 July 2017 (UTC)
No but if you remove the three of them then all the statements they support must be removed as well. Are you saying they don't support what is said? CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 12:56, 24 July 2017 (UTC)
One of the three sources is not accessible at all. Of the remaining two, one is an op-ed, which is not even published by a reliable source and the other, which is in English, cites the claims he made in the court, which is presented as a fact in the article. Clearly WP:SYNTH. Pahlevun (talk) 13:10, 24 July 2017 (UTC)

Draft:Famous Dex[edit]

Hi, saw you removed the MfD tag (thank you!) on this draft. I'm still in the process of cleaning it up, but what's the easiest way to move this into the article space once I'm done with it? thanks, Melodies1917 (talk) 19:49, 25 July 2017 (UTC)

Melodies1917. You are already autoconfirmed and could move it yourself. You could also one of the templates at Template:AFC submission/draft such as {{subst:submit| username}} and this would allow another editor to review it and point out any problems. Cheers.
