Final discussion for Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Biographies of living people

Hello, I note that you have commented on the first phase of Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Biographies of living people

As this RFC closes, there are two proposals being considered:

  1. Proposal to Close This RfC
  2. Alternate proposal to close this RFC: we don't need a whole new layer of bureaucracy

Your opinion on this is welcome. Okip 02:09, 24 February 2010 (UTC)

Wikiquette

For the most part, I have ignored these particular editors. More so than anything else, I want it to be clear to someone neutral what is going on, i.e. that the same handful of accounts who come to frequently attack me are ones who refer to others on and off-wiki as "slackjawed retards," "keepmongers," and various other insults, who come to AfD with userpage declared agendas that leave no room for open-minded and objective discussion, who lash out at others with swear words, or who re-arange talk page headings in a less than friendly manner, i.e. I am attacked with stones by those with glass houses or who have an obvious bias to squelch the opinion of someone who succeeds in rescuing articles they want deleted. I said as comprehensive of a definitive statement as I could (while leaving out some real damning gems of diffs from them that can be used only if needed down the road) and hope to be able to go back to my effort of following WP:DENY with regards to those particular accounts as it is absurd for anyone to acknowledge someone who swears at you, thinks you're a "keepmonger," thinks you're a "slackjawed retard," etc. I do accept sincere apologizes, but I do not play games. Now at least, I am confident, that should they persist in swearing at, insulting, and hounding someone who is for all intents and purposes avoiding/not letting himself be baited by them, it will make it clear what is really going on and such neutral editors will act accordingly. I have said there and in the other threads what needed to be said. Others are aware of the incivility and bullying from these accounts. Hopefully, they are wise enough to not antagonize me any further as doing so will only make them look the aggressors and hounders for picking on someone who is having nothing to do with them and while no swearing and insults towards anyone comes from me. If they are not, someone neutral will see it for what it is. Thank you for your time and comments. Best, --A NobodyMy talk 07:46, 24 February 2010 (UTC)

can you help?

I have a yorkie that is or WAS trained to use the puppy pads. But recently he is peeing in like 6 different spots in my house and completely disregarding the pads. I live in Ohio and it is cold and we have quite a bit of snow for me to take him outside. He just stands there and shivers and so do I. Any ideas why he stopped using the pads? I love him dearly but I do not love cleaning up his pee every day. What happened here??? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Rog L Meckin (talkcontribs) 13:41, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

No, can't help--Cube lurker (talk) 13:42, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

How could you?

I find your comments hurtful and callous.

I was merely trying to make the game more fun for everybody. Before, you could find the hidden pages through any of the many methods that Wikipedia provides to make finding subpages easy and convenient.

Now you have to go through the whole challenging gauntlet of becoming an admin before you can see them! Isn't that fun and playful? DS (talk) 23:22, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

Your message

Thanks - I understand that.

I'll be contributing more in future, but I've been an avid, inactive reader for a long time. As luck would have it, I'd actually followed this saga, just from chancing across the ANI thread - and formed an opinion - and that made me comment.

I don't really care if my opinion is given little weight - I'd care more if I'd resisted the urge to offer it. That's just my way.

But I do appreciate your taking the time to offer your help and guidance - many thanks. Begoon (talk) 17:44, 29 April 2010 (UTC)

Hello

In case you hadn't noticed, I don't really contribute much any more. That is solely down to Giano. If I feel like quoting him on my user page, then that is what I'll do. I've not taken him out of context, nor do I attack him. His quotes are his own, and I don't make them up. What I've got on my user page is a true reflection of his attitudes towards Wikipedia as a project, his ideas of himself and his attitudes of others.

I have removed your comments from my talk page now. I acknowledge you don't like it, as is your right, but I also reserve the right to add his comments to my user page. I'm sorry you think it uncivil, but I rather think that its not. I suppose we'll have to agree to disagree. Thank you for your time. - Tbsdy (formerly Ta bu shi da yu) talk 16:34, 14 May 2010 (UTC)

Reviewer granted

Redaktor Wikipedia 600px.png

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, will be commencing a two-month trial at approximately 23:00, 2010 June 15 (UTC).

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under flagged protection. Flagged protection is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. –xenotalk 20:30, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

Would you agree that his statemnt yesterday that "I feel like the 5% on my edits which are contensous are so minor, its laughable" may perhaps tend to reflect a lack of remorse, and a failure to appreciate the gravity with which those who have warned him, those who have blocked him, and those who have commented on his behavior view his infractions?--Epeefleche (talk) 19:23, 22 June 2010 (UTC)

Software magic? or tired brain possibly

A few minutes ago my talk page seemed different, could be some magical software or my tired brain from my busy work schedule, not sure, and I don't have time for the pain. I am sorry if I raised anyone's blood pressure. I need to get back to some work and a busy schedule of wikipedia edits! I will admit I'm getting a bit tired of this guy off2riorob who has called me a SPU, tells me ina parental manner that I need to discuss my edits first on an article's talk page and keeps reverting well-sourced and notable information on the public policy positions of a congressional candidate, Keith Fimian. Sorry if I wasted your or anybody's time. CriticalChris 16:44, 27 July 2010 (UTC)

/* Admin recall */

I find the best is simply to say on their talkpage that you have lost trust in them as an Administrator and that you request their recall. That way you make yourself clear to the admin and others can also comment if they also have lost trust in their admin actions. Thinking arbcom will deal with it is perhaps mistaken, I prefer to assert my feeling to the admin without feeling any need to refer it anywhere. If other users comment they they also have lost trust in that admin then there is no way for them to avoid that. Off2riorob (talk) 15:16, 10 December 2010 (UTC)

I've found your method ineffective. That doesn't mean that there are more effective methods, rather it means there is no effective method.--Cube lurker (talk) 15:21, 10 December 2010 (UTC)
When you go to their talkpage and explicitly tell them you have lost trust in them as an Administrator it is totally effective, never mind waiting for some faceless bureaucrat to work around it for month or two, you have said it and that is a fact that they can not avoid. Off2riorob (talk) 15:29, 10 December 2010 (UTC)
Tell that to the admins I've told that too yet are still abusing their tools.--Cube lurker (talk) 15:33, 10 December 2010 (UTC)
The thing is to tell them and to raise it again the next time and to keep raising it until others notice it as well. Off2riorob (talk) 15:34, 10 December 2010 (UTC)
That falls outside what I would label as "effective".--Cube lurker (talk) 15:39, 10 December 2010 (UTC)
I assure it will make you feel better, which is a good thing. Have you lost trust for Yellowmonkey as an administrator? Off2riorob (talk) 15:47, 10 December 2010 (UTC)
If you take a look at the RFC you can answer your own question.--Cube lurker (talk) 15:53, 10 December 2010 (UTC)
It's OK to say it out loud...I don't see you here ? Fuddy duddyin around will usually get you a fuddy duddy result as appears to have happened here.Off2riorob (talk) 15:57, 10 December 2010 (UTC)
(ecx2)I'm on Quigly's and Serpents Choice. When I read yours it had that unfortunate line about blocking him and making fun of him which I couldn't endorse.--Cube lurker (talk) 16:02, 10 December 2010 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────That is actually a reflection of the way we tend to skirt around the actual facts. That unfortunate comment was exactly what Yellowmunkey had done and yet users objected to me even suggesting that it should be done to him, instead they wanted to flim flam around and waste their time typing and quietly skirting round their feelings about it, and what the weak attitude of the objectors does is to strengthen other poor administrators by asserting that even when misuse of tools is clear the objectors will just flim flam around and won't even be able to say out loud, "you have lost my trust as an administrator and I request your recall". Off2riorob (talk) 16:13, 10 December 2010 (UTC)

We're rolling back in to why the current system is in my opinion ineffective. Somehow the opinion that an administrator has abused his tools on many occasions and that if the admin has repeatedly misused his tools the tools should be taken back is viewed as wishy washy. In a functiong system I shouldn't have to douse myself in gasoline and light myself on fire in front of the foundation offices for some action.--Cube lurker (talk) 16:22, 10 December 2010 (UTC)
No, I totally agree, that does still appear to be the case, I can assure you that wouldn't have been the case if myself and Giano had been successful in the arbcom election. Arbcom are effectively saying, he said he would do better so give him a chance to do better, which is very weak indeed and sends out a message that discourages even reporting any problems. Regards. Off2riorob (talk) 16:32, 10 December 2010 (UTC)
Yep, Overall we're more in agreement than not.--Cube lurker (talk) 16:34, 10 December 2010 (UTC)

Cathedral of light

Seriously I've no idea. I'm a bit worried that the talk page is going haywire, though I haven't really followed goes on, a bit too much unproductive arguments in my taste. The question is how to stabilise things without causing major grief. walk victor falk talk 20:34, 18 January 2011 (UTC)

Understood. In the section below on the talk page, I brought up WP:SYNTH and WP:OR again. Hoping that if it's followed we can at least lower the number of large paragraphs of discussions that have no real connection to the actual article. Other than that, guess we'll see what happens. But I also haven't had the will to participate in every disagreement that comes up on that page.--Cube lurker (talk) 20:47, 18 January 2011 (UTC)

Deleting my Userpage:Kenatipo

Hello. Were you trying to tell me that if I move most of that stuff to a sandbox that it would solve the problem? --Kenatipo speak! 00:51, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

If you're gathering examples to be promptly used in for example a request for comment (WP:RFC/U) or arbitration case (WP:RFARB) you have some leeway to do that on a subpage like a sandbox. Instead of pasting whole sections you'd want to link the diffs that you intend to use to demonstrate behavior that is impropper (see WP:DIFF) and add a note as to what the diff is for. But it's supposed to be a temporary evidince gathering page. It's not to be used as some sort of 'wall of shame'.--Cube lurker (talk) 14:26, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

Your (meta) viewpoint on the Rodhullandemu Arb Case

I understand you may have feelings regarding the situation, however I would like to request that you redact your statement.

To ErrantX

I certainly would never speak for the purpose of trying to provoke a reaction. It's dissapointing that you'd ascribe false motives to me, and doubly so that you chose to do so in permanent edit summaries. Did I have a point? Certainly I had a point. There's no reason to speak unless you're trying to make a point. However be clear. although I had a point, that's far different than having a WP:POINT.--Cube lurker (talk) 14:49, 3 March 2011 (UTC)

"Yep, good thing I wasn't holding my breath" was the point at which it no longer felt constructive. Apologies if I have simply misinterpreted the point you we trying to make with that. (and for clarity, as you say, I was not referring to WP:POINT) --Errant (chat!) 14:56, 3 March 2011 (UTC)
Not to provoke, just a point. Where were you when the attacks went the other way. I'll accept that the comment got added right after you logged off. But then where were any other admins. Do you really think no admins saw that posted on the ADMINISTRATOR notice board? And none of them thought it was wothy of comment? Well there was one admin who commented. However it was to throw more gas on the fire, talking about genuflecting to Giano.--Cube lurker (talk) 15:07, 3 March 2011 (UTC)
Yes, that is a problem. Pissed me off a bit if I had to be honest. FWIW I thought Conti's comment was sensible and is basically exactly what I said to Rod this morning (if a little more strongly). --Errant (chat!) 15:11, 3 March 2011 (UTC)

Sorry if I implied you might not be sincere.

User talk:Armbrust‎

Sorry for accidentally nuking your comment there. I should have gotten an edit conflict; not sure why I didn't. 28bytes (talk) 17:53, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

No problem. I figured that was what it was. Not sure why sometimes it doesn't handle the conflict correctly.--Cube lurker (talk) 18:12, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

Colin Hatch

Hi, I have nominated Colin Hatch to be restored as the AFD result was a clear No Consensus vote. Join the discussion if you want to, Wikipedia:Deletion_review/Log/2011_April_6#Colin_hatch.--BabbaQ (talk) 18:34, 6 April 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the note. I'm not 100% familiar with this situation, so if I don't comment, it's likely because I didn't get a chance to look into it. I'll attempt to find the time though.--Cube lurker (talk) 18:44, 6 April 2011 (UTC)

Had you noticed this has reopened? I only did today. I stopped looking in after discussion faded away. Now I've put it on my watchlist.

Triple negative

I am confused too, now that you said you're confused by my vote. I said:

I disagree that users blocked for reasons independent of the election should be disqualified from voting.

which means:

You implied: [those] users, [who are] blocked for reasons independent of the election, should be disqualified from voting. And I disagree with what you implied.

... or did you think I wrote:

I disagree. Users blocked for reasons independent of the election should be disqualified from voting.

which means exactly the opposite? Deryck C. 18:38, 23 September 2011 (UTC)

  • Yes you're correct. I believe that all users satisfying certain contribution threshold should be allowed to vote, even if they're blocked, as long as they aren't confirmed sockpuppets. I don't like the idea of discounting votes of people who are blocked for election-related matters (otherwise there's a slim chance of someone abusing the rules), but that's less important.

Dispute resolution survey

Dispute Resolution – Survey Invite


Hello Cube lurker. I am currently conducting a study on the dispute resolution processes on the English Wikipedia, in the hope that the results will help improve these processes in the future. Whether you have used dispute resolution a little or a lot, now we need to know about your experience. The survey takes around five minutes, and the information you provide will not be shared with third parties other than to assist in analyzing the results of the survey. No personally identifiable information will be released.

Please click HERE to participate.
Many thanks in advance for your comments and thoughts.


You are receiving this invitation because you have had some activity in dispute resolution over the past year. For more information, please see the associated research page. Steven Zhang DR goes to Wikimania! 23:01, 5 April 2012 (UTC)

My head must have been under a rock

I can't believe I was unaware of this until today. I strongly hope you may see this comment, and beseech the strength of your character; that if you do, you'll return here to help make this place better. Either way, I will definitely be revisiting this. I'm called a poor writer on Wikipedia; if I reached you, in some way that did right this wrong, and get you back; to the actual leadership role that I remember of you. Well, that would be a proud example of effective writing.

The reason I even came here at all, was to ask you to consider commenting at the RfC.
