If you are new here, and feeling angry, please read Tips for the Angry New User before explaining to us how terribly wrong and messed up Wikipedia is. Would you believe, we probably already know? You can also familiarise yourself with Wikipedia culture via these policy links ->
and helpful essays ^^^

If you've been an admin for a while, and are feeling burnt out, take a step back and take some deep breaths, and don't forget to WP:CHILL

What's goin' on...[edit]

Phony unblock request[edit]

For some reason the page User:CorbieVreccan/Admin Toolbox is listed at Category:Requests for unblock. At the moment, I can't see why. Perhaps you can have a look into it. The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 19:31, 21 June 2015 (UTC)

How bizarre. I have no idea how or why that happened. I'll go kick the wheels and see if anything falls off. - CorbieV 20:18, 21 June 2015 (UTC)

Indigenous migration to Americas[edit]

You said to reference my source, I don't know how, but I can give you the link to the article I found. Let me know if it's not good enough to be a Wikipedia reference. http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2013/11/131120-science-native-american-people-migration-siberia-genetics/# — Preceding unsigned comment added by Syberiyxx (talkcontribs) 02:39, 12 July 2015 (UTC)

Oming at Rainbow Gatherings[edit]

CorbieVreccan, hello, normally I am not in the habit of reverting an administrator. But I have been to many Rainbow Gatherings, albeit none since 1999. I have met Yogi's from India there, & a number of devout Hindus & a lot of serious yoga practitioners. Your characterization of hippie misappropriation paints an overly-broad stroke & is simply not encyclopedic without a citation. If you add language that states "There are those who allege the practice of chanting om before a meal is an example of Rainbow gatherer's misappropriation of a Hindu practice" & add a citation to a reliable source, well that's another matter entirely & would be encyclopedic.

Do not edit war[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Cher. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware that Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing. Worldbruce (talk) 00:07, 17 July 2015 (UTC)

Not an edit war. The sources the IPs and fans want aren't usable; other edits were to reject pending changes by driveby IPs who don't understand sourcing on WP. - CorbieV 15:05, 17 July 2015 (UTC)
