Alison Weir

Hello Courcelles!

Long time no see!

I came across a really strange edit on ClueBot's talk page before. You will see that someone has simply posted that they are Alison Sharon Weir and that is it. I know that there was trouble not so long ago on the Alison Weir page, if I remember correctly someone was claiming to be her and, even though it's a different name, I'm wondering if the two are connected? The person claiming to be Alison Weir has had usernames in the past like 'Alison's back', and if I'm honest that comment reminded me of just that. When I've looked under the Alison Weir page, I think ClueBot has reverted one of her edits before, could be because the page is now locked and she can't edit it that she's started on ClueBot?

Just thought I'd mention it in case you need to look into it.--5 albert square (talk) 02:10, 7 February 2012 (UTC)

I'm A New User Who Has Been Blocked

Hi Courcelles,

I just signed up for an account today and edited out a citation on Thor Heyerdahl's Article that I felt was frivolous and defamatory. It reappeared and not knowing why I edited it out again. Then after a 3rd time I realized it was another user and not something I was doing wrong in the editing process. I've done a little ore reading of the policies, instructions and how the system works but I apparently was blocked for violation of the 3 edit - 24 hour rule. My talk page is blocked also by someone. Please unblock me and I know now how to resolve these issues better using the other utilities and procedures.

Thanks, DixieDear — Preceding unsigned comment added by DixieDear (talkcontribs) 22:27, 7 February 2012 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) You're not blocked. If you were, you would see a message like this when you tried to edit. You were advised by another editor that you had made three reverts and would therefore likely be blocked if you reverted again (in accordance with the three-revert rule, which prohibits making more than three reverts on one page in 24 hours). The best thing to do would be for you to go to Talk:Thor Heyerdahl and explain why you think the material you were removing shouldn't be there, then wait for other editors to comment, and discuss it with them if they disagree with you. You haven't done anything wrong, you just need to stop and talk about it (we call it the bold, revert, discuss cycle. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 22:41, 7 February 2012 (UTC)
Nothing to add to that, but feel free to ask if you have any questions. Courcelles 22:45, 8 February 2012 (UTC)

You are an arbitor

You wrote "it would be improper for any single admin to undo this block and it needs to be discussed on AN before it is done." [1]. You have the ability to move to strip users of the buttons. I do not. Hipocrite (talk) 13:37, 7 February 2012 (UTC)

Correct me (and perhaps a link), but I was under the impression that any established editor was free to either initiate a RfC, or request a case at wp:rfar. Is that not the case, or am I misunderstanding the meaning of "move to strip users of the buttons"? — Ched :  ?  13:41, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
I can ask that arbiters move to do something. I cannot move something myself, so yes, you are misunderstanding the meaning of move. Hipocrite (talk) 13:45, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
My apologies then sir - carry on, and have a great day/night all. — Ched :  ?  19:52, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
oops .. or ma'am if that's the case. I try to have a short wiki-memory in many ways. Either way - no offence intended. — Ched :  ?  20:37, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
Well, I'm involved in this mess up to my eyeballs, so I could never hear i as an Arbitrator. I'm still considering whether to let this one go, or bring a wheel-warring case, however... Courcelles 22:44, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
You may be interested in this conversation which actually started above. My thinking right now is that the more we "let it go", the more uncontrollable it becomes. It's not that I ever want to see anyone embarrassed, defrocked, or sanctioned - but this cowboy mentality is damaging to the stability of the entire project. These young admins. (and I mean no disrespect) need to understand there has to be a measured response to things. I'd prefer to see it done with the least amount of drama and sanctions as is possible, but NYB's post on AN the other day clearly indicates that some steps must be taken. There are such things as mutual respect and proper protocol that need to be adhered to if we are to operate in a mature fashion. Oh my - I've started off on one of my long-winded rants again haven't I? Sorry. Anyway - feel free to let me know if there's anything at all I can do. Best — Ched :  ?  00:12, 9 February 2012 (UTC)
I would be willing to leave a statement as the declining admin, were this to be helpful. --Rschen7754 01:25, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

MSU Interview

Dear Courcelles,

My name is Jonathan Obar user:Jaobar, I'm a professor in the College of Communication Arts and Sciences at Michigan State University and a Teaching Fellow with the Wikimedia Foundation's Education Program. This semester I've been running a little experiment at MSU, a class where we teach students about becoming Wikipedia administrators. Not a lot is known about your community, and our students (who are fascinated by wiki-culture by the way!) want to learn how you do what you do, and why you do it. A while back I proposed this idea (the class) to the community HERE, were it was met mainly with positive feedback. Anyhow, I'd like my students to speak with a few administrators to get a sense of admin experiences, training, motivations, likes, dislikes, etc. We were wondering if you'd be interested in speaking with one of our students.

So a few things about the interviews:

  • Interviews will last between 15 and 30 minutes.
  • Interviews can be conducted over skype (preferred), IRC or email. (You choose the form of communication based upon your comfort level, time, etc.)
  • All interviews will be completely anonymous, meaning that you (real name and/or pseudonym) will never be identified in any of our materials, unless you give the interviewer permission to do so.
  • All interviews will be completely voluntary. You are under no obligation to say yes to an interview, and can say no and stop or leave the interview at any time.
  • The entire interview process is being overseen by MSU's institutional review board (ethics review). This means that all questions have been approved by the university and all students have been trained how to conduct interviews ethically and properly.

Bottom line is that we really need your help, and would really appreciate the opportunity to speak with you. If interested, please send me an email at (to maintain anonymity) and I will add your name to my offline contact list. If you feel comfortable doing so, you can post your name HERE instead.

If you have questions or concerns at any time, feel free to email me at I will be more than happy to speak with you.

Thanks in advance for your help. We have a lot to learn from you.

14th century AH and 15th century AH

  • Courcelles, I noticed that you deleted these two articles as part of a "Delete all" decision that you made in the discussion Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/320 AH. However, I cannot see where a mass nomination had been made, nor whether there was any discussion on these. It is possible that these were nominated, but I cannot find any discourse. Hence, I need you to explain when these articles were nominated, with links to the discussion. As an administrator, my policy has been to not rule on a discussion without determining (a) whether the articles had been tagged and nominated in accordance with the procedures for nominating and (b) whether contributors to an article were given fair notice of the nomination so that they could participate. At the very least, however, I would not have deleted any article that was not specifically nominated. Your explanation will make things more clear and will be appreciated. Thank you. Mandsford 16:26, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
    • The whole list of articles is in the AFD (check the collapse box), and the few deleted ones I spot-checked were AFD tagged by the nominator in an AWB run, so I assume all of them were.
      • I'll see whether they were or not. If they weren't, I'll restore the ones that weren't. I was active in AfD back in January 2011, and I think I would have seen this one if it had been properly nominated, regardless of whether the nominator extended anyone any courtesies. We'll see. Mandsford 21:27, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
        • User:Koavf is very clever, using a collapsible box and giving no notice to any contributors about what he's doing. Collapsible boxes are just fine for compacting large discussions, but never to conceal what's actually on the table in a deletion nomination. I have to admit, I've never seen that maneuver before. I'll have to watch out for that one in the future. Mandsford 22:03, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
          • It is actually common for bulk nominations when the test case has already been proven to et rid of a system of articles. (and it was at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/1114 AH). Further, for the record, your saying you will restore any articles that weren't tagged is rather improper. Even though you have he buttons, admins are expected to use DRV to overturn an AFD close, just as other editors. Courcelles 22:43, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
  • I just saw this. It was an unfortunate decision. I see that none of the participants in that discussion seem to realize that AH to Gregorian transformation is extremely difficult to do in your head. You really need a table. But that's not the only issue. Many events from Islamic sources that only have an AH year can only be assigned to two consecutive Gregorian years, which makes their presentation unnatural in that transformation. There are quite a few issues like that when dealing with the chronology of Al-Andalus for example. Oh, well. ASCIIn2Bme (talk) 03:35, 10 February 2012 (UTC)
    • From an area of history I'm more familiar with, I know the same issues come routinely in the history of the Peloponnesian Wars, esp. on the Athenian side, leaving things to be dated 427/6 BCE as the best we can do. The question then becomes, is an article on every year in every calendar useful for this encyclopaedia, and that's what I really thing this AFD was saying, is that theyre not. Could a USEFUL article be written? Maybe, likely on centuries, but adding to the AGF was that most of these were basically "xxxx AH was a year in the Islamic Calendar corresponding to YYYY and YYYY+1 AD" Courcelles 15:47, 10 February 2012 (UTC)
      • In that case not much was lost. I assume merging them by century was given consideration but rejected for lack of enough meat. ASCIIn2Bme (talk) 16:14, 10 February 2012 (UTC)

Just letting you know ...

There's a thread at AN/I requesting your attention. It's located here. — Ched :  ?  14:34, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

  • Just got home (I've been driving quite literally all day) and I'm noticing it is already closed... okay. If anyone cares to have me explain myself, I can take questions here, but I can't see the benefit in commenting in a now closed ANI thread. Courcelles 00:47, 10 February 2012 (UTC)
    • D'oh! Perhaps the ANI reform pendulum has swung a bit too far towards celerity. (Risker complained similarly about the BB unblock, by the way.) One thing that was not clear to me from your prior statements is whether you think anyone else besides MSK was substantially responsible for the drama surrounding that event. Using a civil court model, what percentage of responsibility for that event would you assign to MSK, BB, and [ANI] community as a whole? ASCIIn2Bme (talk) 03:18, 10 February 2012 (UTC)

Meta RfC

I see you're an admin on meta too. Maybe you give some input on Wikipedia:Administrators'_noticeboard/Incidents#Persistent_off-wiki_and_cross-wiki_harassment. ASCIIn2Bme (talk) 03:03, 11 February 2012 (UTC)


In your arbcom candidacy, you wrote the following statements: "If there is no need for privacy, the Committee shouldn't be doing things in private." Could you confirm that there is currently no action taking place on the "Civility enforcement" arbcom case, now frozen for 3 weeks+? If there is action, why is it taking place in private? What is the need for privacy? If you disagree with said privacy, why have you not posted a proposed decision? Thanks. Hipocrite (talk) 16:31, 13 February 2012 (UTC)

Really the problem with this case, from everything I've seen, is three drafters who are very busy in real life more than anything privacy related. Courcelles 03:45, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

Did you know help: Australian women water polo players

Hey! :D Do you remember how I did the Canberra Capitals and took every player on the current squad to WP:DYK? I'm drafting articles about the current Australia women's national water polo team 2012 Summer Olympics squad on my user space. I'm hoping to take these articles to WP:DYK in a week or two. (Trying to get pictures for the articles first.) If you could help improve the article drafts in my user space in preparation for eventually moving them to the main space, that would be fantastic. The articles I'm working on are:

I suspect EndersFan2012 of being a sock of Dodgechris but at the minute don't have enough really to take it to SPI. The edits are similarish now though they weren't last night, I'm suspicious though because the editor has shown a lot of interest in why Rodhullandemu was blocked and because they seem to know so much about Wikipedia, things that normally new editors wouldn't know such as to add hidden comments. I'm not the only editor thats suspicious but I don't want to raise an SPI at this stage in case it comes across as not assuming good faith lol.

Good point. I've been cleaning up a few in recent months. I generally avoid including an overabundance of early-round losses, and restrict scores to notable wins (to avoid cluttering up the article with numbers). This seems to be in line with Project Tennis. I've done a few things on Kvitová and Radwańska.
It seems a bit odd that the community is sort of neglecting the Azarenka article, especially now that she's no. 1, but I assume someone will polish it up in time. :). -- James26 (talk) 00:19, 23 February 2012 (UTC)
That surprises me as well, but then again, people mostly ignored Wozniacki in her run there. The last #1 I noticed a good deal of editing on was Clijsters.

Question about banning

Hi Courcelles, I just saw this edit where you marked He to Hecuba as a sock of a banned user. I'm not very familiar with the way the banning policy works, but He to Hecuba had reviewed and passed a good article that I nominated. Does this mean that I should submit the article for reassessment or is it Ok to leave things as they are in this instance? Thanks, Mark Arsten (talk) 18:41, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

That's a tricky question. I've looked over it, and don't see any issues with the Good Article Criteria as written, but I've not looked at the depth of a full review, either. Maybe ask the Good Articles Wikiproject, as this sock did do a few reviews? Courcelles 19:47, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

Help needed

Since only admins can edit the userpage (which is protected, from which OKbot updates monthly Alexa rankings), I need your help in clearing the long list in User talk:OsamaK/AlexaBot.js, perhaps you may add it in the watchlist so that in future it does not become another big list. And secondly, I see you have protected your talk page, consider if any IP or a new user wants to ask you something, they have no resort, though I see its history (and that is really a mess), howver you can have a subpage for them to edit. extra999 (talk) 07:17, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

Hmm, when I touch Javascript, I break our in hives. Not literally, but, still, it's a lot of work I am not skilled at and have no interest in. Formatting looks simple enough, might ask a non-admin to set it up and then you copy it over? And the idea of having a separate talk page makes sense for long-term protection and general threat of trolling, but when a page is protected to stop a specific problem, I've never seen a second page do anything other than move the target over one click. Courcelles 06:55, 27 February 2012 (UTC)
