Request for comment

Hi Cd, you worked on Mobile_phones_on_aircraft in 2010. I am a new member of GOCE, and if you would not mind I would appreciate your taking a look at my work in progress on the article (edit view) and, if you have an opinion, the discussion on the talk page (proposed move). If you do not have the time, I will quite understand. Regards, David_FLXD (Talk) 06:11, 4 January 2013 (UTC)

Hi Chaos, happy new year! I wondered if I could get your feedback on making Colin Farrell a good article. I am working to make all of the descriptions of movies he's been in more consistent, so things other than this. thanks.--Aichik (talk) 20:56, 17 January 2013 (UTC)

WikiProject Robotics

Hi. I see you are listed as a member of the WikiProject Robotics project. Some of us are trying to assess who and how many of those Wikipedia editors who have signed on to the project in the pass seven years are still active, or would like to still be active, in the endeavor of improving Robotics-related articles on the English Wikipedia.

If you have the time and inclination, would appreciate it if you would weigh in on the Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Robotics Talk page, or perhaps indicate current interest by your name on the Wikipedia:WikiProject Robotics/Participants page. If you are no longer interested in participating, please just remove your name from the Participants page. Cheers. N2e (talk) 05:43, 3 February 2013 (UTC)

Chaosdruid

I'm leaving this same message on the first ten, and the last ten, WikiProject Robotics participants Talk pages. I know that you are active on the Robotics project because we've talked in recent months. But to keep the "survey" accurate, I wanted to include the same text, above, for everyone who met that criteria. See you around. Cheers. N2e (talk) 05:43, 3 February 2013 (UTC)

Re: mail

Hi Chaosdruid! Thanks for your email. I'm sorry I didn't reply earlier (I've seen your answer some long time ago, but couldn't reply at that time..). My edits are currently little chaotic (trying to improve something here and there), not regular, and mostly done to distract myself from other things.. I'll try to reply on my talk page tommorow - I know that you don't like when someone writes here ;~)

Advice/help

Hello,

I have a bit of problem with false accusations started by User:Csendesmark that I am a sock master or sock puppet and that I have a history of edit warring(all of this based on this accident and data from 2010 and some conclusion by them that I am working with a known sock Iasi), I don`t know which anymore. Now I see that is catching up with User:CoolKoon. I have informed them that this are personal attacks but the accusations don`t stop. Also they are using some of my problems from 2010 to discredit me [1], [2]. Please can you advise me how to conduct in this situation and what should I do? Thank you.Adrian (talk) 15:43, 26 February 2013 (UTC)

Hi Adrian. Unfortunately I cannot get involved in any of the dispute resolution process. It is a forum where no "character" discussions are allowed, and me commenting on what sort of editor you are would be inappropriate.
However, if anything goes to ANI or RFC etc. I will of course make comment, If any of those are underway, or begin, let me know. I have always found you to be a pretty fair person and neutral in your edits (even though others would disagree). I have even noticed that you try and solve disputes, as you did during the Iaaaaaaasi days. Do not listen to those who say that you "supported him" or "were his mate", I am fully aware of everything that went on then and that you were simply trying to be neutral. Those that see you as "siding" with someone are obviously non-neutral by that simple accusation.
As for the goings on at present, it might be best to just carry on as normal. If they take it to ANI or other, then I will of course comment, but in these sort of circumstances I find it is sometimes best to just let things die down. Of course, we need to keep Wiki neutral, so if those edits/images are indeed an issue, then if dispute res. does not fix it, you may need to take it to RFC. Images that show bias or nationalism of the wrong sort are difficult to action; it is not always clear where the offence is, and more importantly it is difficult to show that the majority of nationality A would feel that the image is offensive. Many might just not care.
We had similar incidents in the Ukraine project, especially in the area of Galicia (western Ukraine) that was Polish for a while. There are many Poles/descendants that push and push for an equal amount of Polish and Ukrainian stuff in there. They also try to rewrite history, referencing books written by Polish historians who are obviously very nationalistic and claim Ukraine did things where the numbers go up and up every year even though there is no new evidence. In these cases we have to go by weight and refs. If material is only supported by 1 ref and the others have 20, it is easy to work out which carries more weight. These are difficult topics, and we have to always tread carefully, involving as many sensible neutral editors in discussions. We still get the occasional Iaaaasi, but thankfully these things only happen once every year or so accross all the projects I am in :¬) Chaosdruid (talk) 17:41, 26 February 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for your comment. I will if the problems develops in that way. I am just finding hard to have a real discussion when the starting point is this POV about me again and again [3]. Greetings.Adrian (talk) 19:08, 26 February 2013 (UTC)

Help!

Hey CD! I wondered whether you could help out a bit with a problem that has just popped up. One of the sub-articles on the Cucuteni-Trypillian culture has been victimized by someone who appears to be a rogue Wikieditor that has been slapped down before for nefarious deeds. He basically stripped almost the entire article on Archaeogenetics of the Cucuteni–Trypillian culture, claiming that the content did not talk about archaeogenetics. But much of what he trashed actually does have some bearing on the subject. I restored this bad edit, but he has now gone back and (in his words) "re-reverted" his edit. The article is in serious need of improvement, but trashing the entire thing and throwing out relevant information is not the way to go about improving the article, imho. Could you take a look at this? A third party's opinion on the matter is called for. Thanks! --Saukkomies talk 15:17, 14 May 2013 (UTC)

Personal attacks and incivility

This is not acceptable. Do not do it again. ÷seresin 23:18, 25 May 2013 (UTC)

No, in fact it was a little off, but totally acceptable.
The first thing that was off was the uninvolved admin taking the piss out of me and thinking I was stupid and wouldn't find it. THAT was unnacceptable.
The second thing was the edit summary he left that no-one has said anything about, or apologised for. THAT was unacceptable.
The third thing was being ganged up on by admins. THAT was not acceptable.
The fourth thing was when the conversation was closed, and everyone had accepted it was over and done with, and then you coming here and starting it all over again. THAT is unacceptable.
As for "Do not do it again" ... lol, you are not my father.
You are trying to bully me, and this is also not acceptable - did anyone say anything to any of the others that thought it was funny? or the admin that made that silly edit summary?
Collegiate atmosphere, not primary school playing ground please ... Chaosdruid (talk) 03:15, 27 May 2013 (UTC)
Whether Jayron behaved inappropriately is irrelevant here—misconduct by others does not permit misconduct by you and your behavior was out of line. There is no bullying: I am only warning you that if you do it again I or others will block you. You may heed that warning or not as you please. ÷seresin 10:29, 27 May 2013 (UTC)
It is very relevant - I was reacting, not instigating. You had said what you wanted to, even though everybody else had closed discussion, so drop it. Chaosdruid (talk) 19:49, 27 May 2013 (UTC)

Hey there, Chaosdruid. I hope you're doing well. I wanted to drop you a note to see if you'd be interested in joining the Guild of Copy Editors July 2013 backlog elimination drive. I haven't seen you around the Guild much in quite a while now. We've made lots of progress on the backlog, but we're a bit stalled out lately, drifting just below 3000 articles remaining but unable to get any further. We need more help to keep pushing down the number of articles that still need copy editing. I hope you'll join the July drive and take on a few articles, if you have the time. Cheers. —Torchiest talkedits 13:23, 15 July 2013 (UTC)

  • Progress report: Thus far we have reduced the number of May/June 2012 articles to just 124 articles, so we're on the right track. Unfortunately, for the first time in GOCE history, the number of articles in the backlog has actually gone up during this drive. While all participants are currently doing a fine job, we just don't have as many of them as we have had in the past. We have over 500 editors on our mailing list, but only 18 editors who have done a copy edit for the drive. If you're receiving this newsletter, it's because you have an interest in copy editing. Join the drive! Even if you only copy edit one article, it helps. Imagine how much progress we could make if everyone chipped in just one article.
