Block Help

Hello. I've already contacted Yamla about this inquiry. It's been a year and a half already and I'm still waiting to get unblocked. I only want to use my account to make edits because I don't want to edit using an ip address. When I had originally brought up my unblock request here Unblock request, Yamla had turned it down and said that it was too early or whatnot. It has now been a year and a half. I remember about two or so years ago, you had originally blocked me back then and I want to bring this up to you. Can you please, please help me get unblocked so that I can edit using my own user page. I seriously do not want to create a new account. I only want to edit using my original user page, Zarbon. Please help me. I don't know who else to say this to. I've contacted Yamla and now I am contacting you. And yes, I know that my edits were supposed to be constructive and yes, for the entire year, I did not make any edits because that's what I was told to do. But then, in these last 6 months, I've been editing under my ip address. All I want is to use my original username to do my edits. That is all. I don't want anything else. I will not create any other accounts. I am still sorry that I created Dodoria nearly two years ago. But seriously, I've been punished long enough. Can you please help me get unblocked. Can you please place an unblock request for me. I will verify whatever is needed in order to maintain my identity. Please help me Deskana. I am relying on the help of administrators because I feel that you make the correct decisions when need be. And now it has been a year and a half since my initial block. Please, I am seriously asking you wholeheartedly here. I have the same account name on wikiquote and wikimedia commons. You can check there for further deliberation as to how well I have been contributing. I have been following guidelines and only editing constructively. Thanks again for your time, I greatly appreciate your help. 72.229.48.178 (talk) 17:08, 15 May 2008 (UTC)

Active or inactive

Are you active or inactive on the Homepathy case? Please respond at WP:AC/C/N. RlevseTalk 09:53, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

Appeal - PLEASE HELP

It is high time that the abuses against the unjustly banned user "Gibraltarian" were dealt with rationally and fairly. My ban was brought about by a troll user's malicious complaint, and he continually vandalised any words I tried to post in my defence. I appeal to you as Arbcom member to please contact me on a_gibraltarian@hotmail.com to discuss the matter.

This is a massive injustice, and only allows others to continue to assert factually incorrect, malicious, offensive and POV items about my country.

Many thanks —Preceding unsigned comment added by 212.120.246.83 (talk) 15:31, 22 May 2008 (UTC)

Unified login and usurping username

Hi. I have unified login Narcotic (without English Wikipedia project) and I need your advice/help. I am wondering, should I try to usurp en:User:Narcotic to add it to unified login or should request it at nearest beaurocrat, like you (since en:User:Narcotic contributions count is so tiny and the account is no longer used), as it is suggested at polish wikipedia project. I would be very grateful if you could enlighten me with your opinion. Thanks. Narcotic (talk) 01:38, 29 June 2008 (CEST)

PS. All my contributions at English Wikipedia are anonymous since I usually edit it for interwiki issues. Since unified login is provided I am eager to use it to sign my contributions.

I have renamed the local account out of the way given it has been inactive for some years and has no significant edits. You should now be able to sign in here with your global account. WjBscribe 19:26, 30 June 2008 (UTC)
It's working! Thank you. --Narcotic (talk) 23:13, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

Dragon Ball Z Butchering

Hey, I noticed you were one of the administrators for the Dragon Ball WikiProject, and I wanted to inform you that there have been a few individuals going around deleting information on the subject. They've completely remove the Dragon Ball Z article - leaving only three paragraphs describing it on the Dragon Ball manga page. The saga summaries have also been removed. (And as the WikiProject page states, there were to be four pages dedicated to the story arcs in Dragon Ball Z.)

Vandalism is a strong word, but this hits pretty darn close. A user by the name of Collectonian seems to be taking the lead among them. It's pretty clear given the negative backlash that these changes were not warranted, despite how the users in question attempt to justify them. Anyway, I can try to tackle repairs myself, but my expertise on editing Wikipedia articles is somewhat limited. Any help you can provide in fixing the damage and preventing these users from causing more is greatly appreciated! Thanks.72.160.93.25 (talk) 22:37, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

Second opinion

Dan, if you have a sec could you take a look at this usurpation request: Wikipedia:Changing username/Usurpations#Aleena to be a doppleganger account for Lady Aleena and provide a second opinion? WjBscribe 20:05, 12 July 2008 (UTC)

Epic Fail

This is Wikipedia's epic failure so excuse me for getting hot headed, also i have been issued 3 warnings so far just for that msg. (check ani and talkpage history)   «l| Ψrom3th3ăn ™|l»  (talk) 16:22, 14 July 2008 (UTC)

Maybe if you stopped removing your warnings as soon as they were issued, other people wouldn't give you more. --Deskana (talk) 16:23, 14 July 2008 (UTC)

Your Block...

"The account creator and rollbacker tools are meant to be used by users who the community can trust to responsibly handle the tools. Given your recent behavior, I do not believe you have the community's trust to use such tools and have removed them. MBisanz talk 02:48, 15 July 2008 (UTC)"

"Quotes sometimes only confuse matters more if the person that tells them to you doesn't actually make it clear what he wants you to help him with." --Deskana of the Shattered Sun
I need those tools, It basically what I do on wikipedia. You have my word I wont abuse them nor do i think they should have been taken away on such a petty incident. Yes I have a hot temper, but it doesnt mean I go around vandalising pages   «l| Ψrom3th3ăn ™|l»  (talk) 03:19, 15 July 2008 (UTC)
Maybe we can look at giving you rollback again, but given that you've not actually used the account creator feature in quite a while, there's no point giving it back anyway. --Deskana (talk) 03:20, 15 July 2008 (UTC)
I havnt been very active due to my being in year 11. However that is no reason to pry flags of of people. I was granted the flag when i was active.   «l| Ψrom3th3ăn ™|l»  (talk) 03:23, 15 July 2008 (UTC)
For the record, removing the flag is not a statement about your activity or worth. It is simply a fact that you were not using it, so it was removed. That is the common practice with these flags, so far. --Deskana (talk) 13:01, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

The detail in the elephant

The Geogre/Connolley RFAR was not supposed to be about Giano... and yet Kirill has added as a FoF an extensive collection of Giano quotations, which he describes as "public attacks against fellow editors".[1] Please note that, pushing the case further over towards being about Giano after all, Kirill had previously offered the same context-free collection in the workshop as "The elephant in the room".[2] I beg arbitrators to study the context Carcharoth supplies in "The detail in the elephant"[3] before they vote. It makes the elephant look rather different. Bishonen | talk 08:40, 15 July 2008 (UTC).

I can understand your concerns, but unfortunately, I disagree with them. :-) --Deskana (talk) 03:00, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

Recent vandalism to your user page

Hello. I'd like to inform you that on July 16, 2008 at 02:12 (UTC), your user page was vandalized by an anonymous editor. Fortunately, I spotted the edit on recent changes and reverted it. I'm not fishing for compliments or anything, I just think you should probably be informed of these happenings. Thanks, Robert Skyhawk (Talk) 02:19, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

Thanks. I think someone was miffed that I protected a page before they got the chance to vandalise it... --Deskana (talk) 03:00, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

well...

Talk to User:Tiptoety, he granted me that permission. Beam 03:27, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

Either way, my note was just a kind reminder that you shouldn't create pages like that in the future. :-) --Deskana (talk) 03:35, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

If I was you Beam - I'd banish Deskana from the community and restore the page with your new found power. Ryan Postlethwaite 03:29, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

Vandalism

Hi, my Japanese wikipedia user page was briefly vandalised.[4] I.P. address point to U.K. Plus, ass raping is not a common insult in Japanese. Could you use checkuser and see if this particular I.P. address belong to a user in English wikipedia and take an appropriate action. I should also mention that the vandalism was immediately reversed. Vapour (talk) 00:25, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

Hi Vapour. I'm not so sure that would be an appropriate use of the checkuser tool, in this instance. The tool is to be used strictly to prevent disruption to the project that you're on, and I'm not sure that this would actually prevent any disruption on enwiki. Feel free to file a request for checkuser to see if any other checkuser disagrees with me. To save you a bit of time, code letter G would be the right code to use, if you file one. --Deskana (talk) 13:03, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

Oversight

If no one happens to beat you to this, could you please remove that information. I'm not sure who it belongs to, but I stumbled across it. Thanks. Ottava Rima (talk) 02:46, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

Alison has handled this, hasn't she? --Deskana (talk) 13:03, 24 July 2008 (UTC)
Yes, out of the blue. It was a weird time of day and I was glad that she was around. :) But yeah, sorry for bothering you. Ottava Rima (talk) 13:59, 24 July 2008 (UTC)
Don't worry about it, that's what I'm here for. :-) --Deskana (talk) 19:52, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

Signature

Thanks a lot for the tip on my signature. You're right, dropping the font tag makes virtually no difference - it was pretty much an unnecessary holdover from when I used to have more than a letter or two within it. I'd actually cut it down recently because it was indeed too long, glad I could prune off some more of it without losing anything significant. Cheers ~ mazca t | c 22:18, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

Thank you...

RE: User:Renameeed3‎... but there is another one I think you might have missed... - Adolphus79 (talk) 00:56, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

Hi

Hi Deskana, hope all’s well. It's good to see you editing (more|again) ... – Thomas H. Larsen 00:01, 26 July 2008 (UTC)


User Page and logos

Hi Deskana, I asked for advice in Wikipedia talk:Logos but get no reply.

Dear Deskana, conserning this sentences in WP:LOGO;

  1. It is not necessary to seek formal permission from the owner in advance of using their logo, so long as the usage is fair use, does not create any impression that the logo is associated with or endorses Wikipedia or the article it appears in, and does not create any reasonable grounds for complaint by the owner. The purpose of the specific guidelines above is to meet these conditions.
  2. In the event that the owner objects to the use made of a logo, the suggested action is for the owner to remove the logo themselves, and identify themselves and their reasons for removing it on the associated talk page.

Has there been any consensus established with regards of using logos in user pages. For example, is it possible to use this logo [5] in my user page? Thanks in advance. Peace be with and around you--ZentukBir Papyrus 12:50, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

Bot flag for Plasticbot

My bot, Plasticbot, was recently approved at Wikipedia:Bots/Requests_for_approval#Approved_requests. It does not currently have a flag and I am hesitant to let it run wild without one. According to the Bot status log you are the most recent bureaucrat to add a bog-flag so, when you have a chance, I would like to ask you to flag my bot's account.

Username "Manuel de Sousa"

Hello, I have the username Manuel de Sousa on many Wikimedia Foundation's projects, namely Wikipedia in many different languages. The sole exception is en.wikipedia where I have to be MSousa, as Manuel de Sousa account was already taken by another user.

As existing user:Manuel de Sousa just made about 20 edits between 15 March and 28 May 2004 and has been completely inactive since then, I'm contacting you to know if that account can be given to me, so I can have the same unified login in all Wikimedia projects. Thanks & best regards, MSousa (talk) 20:53, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

RE: Talk page Mesasage

Dan, Your petty torments are growing old and im-mature. You are the Arbitrator here, start acting like one and back off.   «l| Ψrom3th3ăn ™|l»  (talk) 07:09, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

  • By all means warn me per the wikipedia guidelines, however I stongly suggest you use the templated messages in future, for they a neutral and provide a reason. All I can see in your messages is hostility, hence why im sick of them.   «l| Ψrom3th3ăn ™|l»  (talk) 10:58, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

Steve Crossin

Why are you trying to ban Steve and his wife for six months? What are you trying to prove here? What dispute are you supposedly resolving here? -- Ned Scott 20:20, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

Not sure if you saw my apology regarding Steve's situation, but just in case.. my apologies. I was under the impression that Steve was being pressured into this, but it turns out the pressure he felt was more about his own fear, and not anything the arbs directly did. -- Ned Scott 02:23, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
Apology accepted. --Deskana (talk) 11:47, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

OTRS copy

Hey, I'm trying to verify image permissions for the FAC for Jena Six and I was wondering if you could email me a copy of the OTRS agreement here? Thanks, Der Wohltemperierte Fuchs (talk) 16:19, 28 August 2008 (UTC)

I'm requesting unprotection of this talk page. It's been one month since he was indef blocked, and I wish to start a discussion regarding a new block review, per previous comments about waiting to see if he could go without making new accounts to evade his block. -- Ned Scott 02:18, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

Given that he attempted to apply for checkuser rights while blocked, then wikilaywered when I wouldn't forward his application, I think unblocking him would be misguided at best. That said, I'm happy to unprotect the page. The protection has served its purpose, now. --Deskana (talk) 11:46, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
