Anon Bite - (Leave for further discussion)

On friday (07/20) you posted a notice on my user page about biting IP addresses. It infered that my posts to IP addresses would be unhelpful in attempting to become a useful bureaucrat or admin. I replied to you but it seems to have been archived, without a final reply. I explained my reasons and on my watchlist I found this comment from you to another IP user User_talk:195.212.52.6. Your comments on my talk page are open to all. I explained my rationale, but I do feel that I should also point out to you that if my actions were wrong you should not repeate them albeit yours were in a verbose manner. Mike33 - t@lk 20:41, 22 July 2007 (UTC)

::: That's because I actually had evidence of their activities and the suspected sockpuppet template was on their page so I added my message on it. I must have forgotten to put it on Rob-right, but it seems that user address may have, only if slightly, more edits on mainspace so therefore I should subject them to the message rather than the "less important" editor, in this case Rob Right. And also in reference to your second city of the united kingdom debate, I believe you are "sniping" at people unnecessarily, your response to my commment was extremely rude and any sarchasm that was in it was abrupt in it's manner. I don't need you to tell me how to write, I will write my comments anyway I like and if that involves using big words then I will do it everytime. I now appreciate the concerns that User:DWaterson has left on your talk page. R_O (Talk) 15:45, 23 July 2007 (UTC)

Before you wrote the above text, it might have seemed obvious that I posted the sock warning and yes I did discuss the other sock which I gave you links to. I explained that it wasn't reasonable to report every dynamic IP to AIV. You never replied and archived that talk.

I am very disappointed that you raise the User:DWaterson talk. I as any other editor can comment on others behaviour in Afd. As I will repeate until infinity Afd is not a happy place. All editors should be careful of there use of terms. Cheers might well be appropriate as a greeting or salutation, but not in Afd.

As per your comments in Talk:Second_city_of_the_United_Kingdom it wasn't sniping, it just didn't make sense. It was disjointed and carried a lot of unnecessary big words verbum sap.

I have nothing against you, but to accuse me of doing something and you do the same thing and then accuse me (a la straw man) of misinterpretation is just wrong.

lol And then bring up a forgotten talk about conduct on Afd.....

Your conduct is at least far more bizarre than you can ever accuse me of. I really can't wait to read your reply. Can you try and make it in workable usable world english? Mike33 - t@lk 16:22, 23 July 2007 (UTC)

Please I was annoyed at you and you should be annoyed at me. Nothing would hurt me more if you stopped editing because of me. I only talked to you so that we can understand each other better as editors. I'll cool down and stop editing if you think I am getting too "hot". Mike33 - t@lk 16:46, 23 July 2007 (UTC)

Firangi Mahal

Dear Onnaghar

Firangi Mahal is a very specialised topic, and of interest to a select group. Do you have a particular individual interest in this topic, or a learned interest?

Sincerely User:Firangimahali

Gaymation

Please respond to "deletion" topic. I am heading to bed soon and would like to know why this is the 4th time a deletion has been issued on the term and with it being a term used by Outfest, whom is working with the UCLA film and television archive to preserve LGBT film, comes down to a "google" rank?

Thanks for the help

I have been up and down the tutorial and couldn't find any information on adding the <*ref> tags. Being something highly required by Wikipedia, I found it disenchanting when I couldn't find it. Also, Thank you for the information about the "list entry" feel. unfortunately little to no information is documented on the subject and I'm having to put in first world time into researching the subject. By this, I'm talking to archives and restoration projects, film historians and researching second hand accounts of people who stated seeing a cartoon, with this guy... he had shoes...

Long story short, I'm afraid the entry is going to be removed because of my simple mistakes as a new user to wikipedia and therefore, an actual term with real history is left at the acknowledgment of those who see it as a quick addition for what ever reason people add mindless crap to the site. Sappyhucks 16:25, 29 July 2007 (UTC)

Any and All help would be awesome!

The main thing to remember is that gaymation is based on subject, story and actors. It can be argued that Elen Degenerus did the voice in Finding Nemo but while she is a lesbian, Finding Nemo is not thought of as a gay animation in subject, story or containing a gay character.

Fact finding will have to be found through originations like Outfest, UCLA and other respected film historians who document and study cinema.

I'm currently on hold for a reply from a few vendors who distribute rare prints and (fingers crossed) will have a cleaner line on studios and independent projects that were shown at the NY underground. Again, Thank you! Sappyhucks 18:05, 29 July 2007 (UTC)

re: example

It's probably better if I find the reference material being some "themes" and "information" may be a bit adult in nature. Yaoi is one such theme but to answer your question, Yaoi is not gaymation.

The string for Yaoi would be Animation > Japanimation > Hentai > Yaoi (some yaoi is found in manga) but the point being... It's a subset to Japanimation. Japanimation being "Japanese Animation" and Gaymation being "Gay Animation" - Though Yaoi is "gay animation" - its roots, its following and it's classification are in japan. Sappyhucks 18:46, 29 July 2007 (UTC)

Mike33

Hi, thanks for the note on my talk page. Very sorry to hear about your sad loss. Situations like that are not a happy period for the most tame editors never mind being fed by a rabid dog like me. i have cool3d down, taken a wikibreak and apologise if I did aggrevate you.

On a lighter note, i was about to write this last night, but got distracted by Firangi Mahal. I made an attempt to tidy up the article but is missing about 200 years of history. Was a very interesting first welcome back project though. lets hope some of the editors notice and add :-)

Again thanks for your message if we do bump into each other again, I hope it is in happier circumstances. 20:29, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

User:MistuiAika

{{helpme}}I'm just wondering what the next step would be for a user who continues to vandalize an article I'm watching. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:68.14.78.186 MitsuiAika 14:09, 1 August 2007 (UTC) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_4th_Coming is the article I'm watching. I've reverted his edits. Looking at his contributions, I see more vandalism than just that article alone, however I'm not sure what to do next. MitsuiAika 14:13, 1 August 2007 (UTC)

Umm, Thank you?

I know. I've been getting into XfD more and more recently. Just trying to spread out. I have sort of a hit-and-run view of it. If it isn't verifiable or notable, or fails WP:NOT or a CSD, delete it. J-stan Talk 14:36, 1 August 2007 (UTC)


Your archived help request

err I'm a bit lost since you archived it. I replied you there. If you need further help, please don't hesitate to post on my talk page or to put {{helpme}} followed by your question on this page. -- lucasbfr talk 15:33, 1 August 2007 (UTC)

RE: Archive

Thanks for the comment but it was another user who I'd welcomed via their talk page who needed the help, they placed that on my page by mistake. Sorry to bother you. Onnaghar (Speak.ctb?) 15:36, 1 August 2007 (UTC)

Manchester Airport Page

I will soon be uploading more photos onto the Manchester Airport page.


Firangi Mahal

Thanks for your help, and guidance. I am bringing information out of some reference texts, in Urdu, and am working on the page a couple of hours at a time. it's painstaking.

AFD

Woah! What's going on here? Three minutes after the page was created, you AFD'd it. When you nominated it (in the wrong place), you're rationale was "empty page", and violation of WP:CRYSTAL. One, it's not empty, and I was only partly done writing it, and two, the film has an IMDb page, so crystal is not violated. — Jack · talk · 17:11, Friday, 3 August 2007

Even if so, isn't all the text on the page a copyvio of Imdb? Onnaghar (speak.work) 17:14, 3 August 2007 (UTC)

That was the first source I found, so yes, it's strongly modelled after the IMDb info. Perhaps it would be better to observe the page developing, as more sources become available? I'm working on the potential copyvio issues. — Jack · talk · 17:24, Friday, 3 August 2007 17:24, 3 August 2007 (UTC)

(from here)
I've removed it for further development purposes. Onnaghar (speak.work) 17:28, 3 August 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Intercontinental Hotelcorp Logo.png

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Intercontinental Hotelcorp Logo.png. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page.

Please let me know why you have blocked my username FAKEFRENCHBOY

Thanks

Mark Luxton AKA FAKEFRENCHBOY

Fakefrenchboy, according to your block log (and your ability to post on this page), you are not currently blocked.
Onnaghar, please refrain from posting bogus block messages on the pages of users who are not actually blocked, as this is extremely disruptive. Newyorkbrad 19:06, 15 August 2007 (UTC)
Onnaghar, thanks for your response on my talk. I have replied there with the information you were looking for. Newyorkbrad 19:20, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the input

Symbol question.svg I see you recently commented on the decision of "blocking" the user Fakefrenchboy, I feel rather deflated now after striving for experience in sorting inapt names from good ones. Do you think I should remove the template suggestion blockation? Thanks. Onnaghar tl | co | @ 19:38, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

Yes, that would be a good idea. I suggest also putting a note in the Edit Summary when you remove the {{uw-block}} that it was given in error. And don't beat yourself up over this! We all made/make mistakes... it's what you do once they are pointed out. Flyguy649 talk contribs 19:42, 15 August 2007 (UTC)
Thanks. Onnaghar tl | co | @ 19:47, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

RE:Blocking

I'll make this candid. The reasons for blocking are below (obviously):

  1. We (a group of people on IRC) thought that nominating a user for adminship on the 5th day was a bit suspicious, but neglected to check the rename log.
  2. Creating a talk archive on your 5th day here was also a bit suspicious.

After thinking this over, I have decided that all reasons (both [now-regarded as] invalid and minor legit ones) are not block worthy. Sorry for misjudging you. Face-smile.svgAnimum 23:39, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

No worries! You could always look at the block summary and then the fact that I unblocked you for a good laugh. Face-wink.svgAnimum 12:04, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

Deletion of My Article

(I hope I am doing this right! You invited me to ask you questions on my talk page, so here I am. Thank you ahead of time for your time.)

My first Wikipedia article was recently deleted. I believe this was not actually the result of consensus of editors, but was the result of a serious internet attack on me in which one of the Wikipedia editors who sought deletion of the article directly participated. I have sent the following to this editor as well as to the editor who told me my article had been deleted, but I'm sending it to you as well for your comment. I am, again, not sure I am proceeding correctly, but I know Wikipedia asks that in a dispute, we go directly to the parties involved first.


I recently created a Wikipedia page for myself, Cheryl Lindsey Seelhoff. I knew Wikipedia opposes autobiographical pages, and I thought about asking others to submit a page for me in their own names, knowing they would gladly have done so, but that seemed not quite honest to me, so I submitted my own page in my own name. I was new to Wikipedia, learning everything from scratch, I made mistakes, but they were honest mistakes, and I ultimately included substantial citations to credible outside references which supported what was included in my article. In response to the concerns about the article being autobiographical, I offered to ask others to rewrite the article and add to it, a compromise several editors seemed to view as satisfactory.

Shortly after submitting my article, my websites, boards, and blog were targeted for attacks by "not420/chan", "Anon," "Legion", the "Internet Hate Machine," aggressive internet hackers, in other words. My boards were hacked and spammed with racist, misogynist rhetoric and pornography, e-mail accounts of board members were hacked and violated, and my sites were subjected to "gigaloader" attacks over many days which ultimately forced them off the internet. My life has now been threatened many times in e-mails and via comments to my blog, and I have also received many rape threats, as have my commenters, colleagues and supporters. I am still receiving murder and rape threats.

My personal information, address, telephone number, and other information was published on "Encyclopedia Dramatica" alongside ongoing strategizing as to how to destroy my websites and web presence, harrass me and my family in an ongoing way, and cause me real life harm. The reason for this targeting and harrassment is that I am an outspoken radical feminist.

As part of these attacks, persons were urged to come to Wikipedia and to vote that my Wikipedia article be deleted. Iamcuriousblue, who has evidently written for Wikipedia at some point, was the first advocate for deletion and continued to press for deletion for days and probably weeks. Iamcuriousblue, as it turns out, is also a moderator at Encyclopedia Britannica. During the discussion of deletion, my article was repeatedly being vandalized, filled with links to racist, misogynist pornograpy, my interracial children were called "mud children," and the most vile speech imaginable was included as "edits", in part by those sent to vandalize the site by Encyclopedia Dramatica, which, again, iamcuriousblue helps to moderate.

Iamcuriousblue, who again spearheaded the drive to delete my article, has a long history of attacking my writings and political activism because he is opposed to radical feminism and is a pro-pornography activist. As a moderator at Encyclopedia Dramatica, he has participated directly or indirectly in the attacks on my sites, my boards, my blog, and my person -- attacks which I have reported to the FBI and for which I am seeking legal counsel.

I followed some of the discussion of deletion and noted that fair-minded, intelligent, credible and, most importantly, objective, Wikipedia editors voted not to delete. One editor noted that among certain populations, my name is a household world. He's right, it is. I am cited as a credible outside reference in at least one Wikipedia article. The discussion, however, continued to be spammed with anonymous deletion votes which in fact were part of the internet attacks against me. My sense is that the vote to delete may have resulted more from a desire to end the ongoiing, very toxic and hateful vandalism of my page and ongoing flaming and conflicts than because any sort of consensus had been reached that my article should be deleted on its merits. I ultimately cited to many independent, outside references which are, in fact, thoroughly credible.

I do not see how what happened to me here can be consistent with the community ethos or values of Wikipedia. I think what happened to me here was wrong. The deletion of the article is now being touted as a "victory" by internet thugs at Encyclopedia Dramatica and elsewhere, as well as by those who oppose my long history of anti-pornography, radical feminist politics. And it is a victory for them, but I think it compromises the credibility of Wikipedia's editorial policies and processes.

I would ask that you give what I have written here your serious consideration. I am consulting with attorneys and other authorities and will be including what happened to me here at Wikipedia as evidence of the harm done to me by not420chan, "Legion", Encyclopedia Dramatica, iamcuriousblue, and all who have threatened to rape and murder me, to harm my family, all who have destroyed my websites, or who have aided and abetted those who have harmed me in these ways.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,

Cheryl Lindsey Seelhoff "Heart", "Heartsees2" http://www.womensspace.org (currently down because of the attacks) http://www.gentlespirit.com (currently down because of the attacks) http://www.womensspace.wordpress.com News Editor, Off Our Backs Feminist News Journal cheryllindseyseelhoff@gmail.com Heartsees2 08:36, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

This response is so completely unbelievable, I don't know where to begin. First, here is the AfD page (pre-courtesy blanking). The article (about the above individual and initially authored by her) in question was found by an overwhelming majority of users (even when disregarding SPAs) to be about a non-notable subject and was deleted following normal Wikipedia procedures. This user is now treating this as a personal attack, and not only that, is now using this as a pretext to threaten me with legal action. I'll note that I have absolutely nothing to do with the attacks on this individual by 4chan, "Anonymous", Encyclopedia Dramatica, etc. This user is basically taking offense at my starting the AfD, and on comments I've made about her (non-threatening and having nothing to do with the AfD) on various blogs where her politics and actions were being discussed. I'll note that the threat of legal action on this forum is in direct violation of Wikipedia:No legal threats, an action that can result in a block of one's Wikipedia account. I am hereby asking User:Heartsees2 to withdraw this ludicrous threat immediately, or barring that, asking any Wikipedia admins who may be following this to block this user's account. Iamcuriousblue 17:57, 19 August 2007 (UTC)
I also note that in the missive on this talk page, she actually accuses me of being a moderator for Encyclopedia Dramatica. This is utterly and completely false. I am not even an editor there. My sole communication with ED has been via their blog, ( blog.encyclopediadramatica.com/?p=10#comments ) (the spam filter is blocking this URL, so you'll have to copy and paste it). As you see, while I do openly admit my real-life opposition to Seelhoff's politics, I denounced the DoS attacks and publication of personal information. Iamcuriousblue 18:17, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

Repsonse to above on Iamcuriousblue' talk page

Talk Page Massacre!

Hello Iamcuriousblue! - I see your situation and stance in these circumstances - but my user talk page cannot be used as a battleground. I am sure you, just as I, would not want users completely unknown to create an uncomfortable "piggy-in-the-middle" cramp for yourself. I appreciate and understand your comments, and this is why I have made no direct accusation towards you in the response I sent to the user in question' talk page. I would suggest using WP:ANI for further developments to be realised, so this "edit-war" based on a rather minor AfD to spiral out-of-control on my talk page! Thank you. Regards, Onnaghar tl | co 19:51, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

Sorry – I should have simply noted that I left a response at User_talk:Heartsees2#Deletion_of_Article_Cheryl_Lindsey_Seelhoff and left it at that. And note that this isn't even what I'd call an "edit war" – there is no existing article that's at issue. Just somebody who's pi**ed that their pet article got AfD'd and wants to see me somehow punished for my role in it. Iamcuriousblue 19:56, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

RE:Editor Review

Thanks. Every little comment helps :-) Happy editing! --Boricuaeddie 18:29, 18 August 2007 (UTC)

Adoption

Hello Onnaghar! I would be pleased to have you adopt me! I've started some edits already, adding some sources and fixing up grammar here and there. My main intrests include Architecture and Art History. If you wanted to take a look at what I've done to make sure everythings to Wiki Standard, that would be lovely! - Campanile 16:53, 21 August 2007 (UTC)

Images

Hi Onnaghar, I have some image questions! If I want to add an image to an article, what must I do? Does Wiki host images or do we have to host them from an outside source? What's the code to imput an image into an article? Do we have standards on size and placement? Badger Badger Badger - Campanile 01:41, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

Updates

Hello Captain Onnaghar! I've added three new images which I hope contribute significantly to the articles I've put them in. And no, before you ask, I'm not breaking any copyright laws, each image is 100% Campanile. Hurrah! Question: I've found two articles, Catchlight and Catch light which describe the same photography phenomena. Who should I report this to? - Campanile 22:39, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

My RfA

Onnaghar, I just wanted to say thank you for my successful RfA, which passed 89/2/5. I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of support that I received and I am more than a little bit humbled at the kind words yourself and many others had to say about me. I wanted to personally say how much it is appreciated. Trusilver 02:21, 24 August 2007 (UTC)

New Article

Hi Onnaghar! I've made an entirely new article! Hurray. There was a request for Hatshepsut's temple in Wikiproject:Architecture and seeing as how I have historical architecture sources just lying around I figured I'd contribute. Hopefully everything's peachy, (and it dosn't get deleted or anything.) Hatshepsut's temple has sections in Hatshepsut and Deir el Bahari however it's a widely known historical site - it's the first mortuary temple for a female pharaoh, marks the turn in ancient egyptian architecture, and is arguably the closest egypt came to achieving the visual appeal and proportion of Classical Architecture... so, I figure it's notable enough to deserve it's own space. :). - Campanile 23:32, 24 August 2007 (UTC)

Strangeness

Hey Onnaghar. So apparently, someone took Hatshepsut's temple, merged it into Deir el Bahari, (Poorly, too - repeat information, bad section breaks...) Then realized it was messy and remade the article as Mortuary temple of Hatshepsut, redirecting Hatshepsut's temple to this new article - leaving all the information Deir el Bahari, thus not solving the messy problem that caused him to remake the article... (Does this sort of illogical editing happen often?) Should I edit out the now duplicate information in Deir el Bahari leaving a brief summary? Edit out all the information in Deir el Bahari and simply link it? (which seems logical to me, if considering precident on other Egyptian Places housing Notable Architecture - see Valley of the Queens) Fix the poorly copied information in Deir el Bahari and delete the Mortuary temple of Hatshepsut or... I can think of no more or's. -Campanile 15:09, 29 August 2007 (UTC)

Hey Oh-na (here I've been pronouncing it On-a-gar..) Thanks for the barnstar! :) I'll be internetless for the next little while as I am on the move, alas! Ideally, it may only be a couple of days, but who knows with service providers these days. Take care! -Campanile 14:10, 31 August 2007 (UTC)

His CricketArchive page calls him James, while Cricinfo's bio calls him Jim - as does the Aston Villa card shown on the latter page. I'm fairly sure he wasn't widely known as "Jimmy" in the cricket world, but I'm willing to be persuaded that he was in football. Loganberry (Talk) 22:47, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

Yes, I think my inclination would be to have the article at Jim Cumbes, as that seems to be the name by which he is known nowadays, for example in this Cricinfo piece, this ECB one and this Manchester Evening News column. Of course it's not a pressing problem as long as redirects are in place, but of the three choices I think Jim would be best, yes. Loganberry (Talk) 22:08, 10 September 2007 (UTC)

Back

Hey Onnaghar. You're mentee is back! I see you're feeling under the weather, and I wish you a swift recovery! I've decided to try my hand at some copy-editing and hopefully havn't stepped on too many toes yet. Good luck with your eyes and such! -Campanile 03:32, 10 September 2007 (UTC)

Manchester - FA push

Hello fellow WikiProject Greater Manchester participant! T=You may or may not be aware that our Manchester article has recently obtained official good article status! This is a great acheievement, but we don't want to stop there! We're hoping to spend the next few weeks as a team to raise the standard of this article to featured standard! It will only be possible if we work together, and hope you can take a moment to look both at the FA criteria, and the Manchester article and aid us in this feat! Any problems, feel free to raise them at Talk:Manchester! Good luck! Jza84 23:19, 10 September 2007 (UTC)
