Is this better?

By the way, Your talk page is incredibly long. I can't even see the letters I'm typing right now, which is what happens on very long pages. Could you please archive or something? Thanks.~~

Hope this works, but I'm still not happy with it.{{SUBST:user2NinaEliza}} 15:21, 23 December 2006 (UTC)

What exactly are you trying to do there? --Deskana (talk) 15:22, 23 December 2006 (UTC)

I saw the template thingy a while back, is it better? I haven't tried it. I thought the 2 would do something.{{SUBST:userNinaEliza}} 15:24, 23 December 2006 (UTC)Specifically, I want to have talk and logs, and contribs only - is that cool? Stick a fork in me, I'm done.NinaEliza 15:26, 23 December 2006 (UTC)

No such template exists. You're trying to subst Template:userNinaEliza which as you can see from the red link doesn't exist. Were you to try to subst User:NinaEliza you'd end up substituting your userpage onto every talk page you sign! If you can't figure out the syntax I'd suggest you try just going with a normal signature. Your new signature would work better if you turned Raw Signature off. --Deskana (talk) 15:27, 23 December 2006 (UTC)

Done, I thinkNinaEliza 15:29, 23 December 2006 (UTC) Ǐ


Thanks for your help on the User:Zarbon case. Sorry I upped the block without checking with you first. That was great work and I appreciate the hand! | Mr. Darcy talk 00:53, 24 December 2006 (UTC)

No need to apologise, you used your head and acted, I couldn't agree more! --Deskana (talk) 00:54, 24 December 2006 (UTC)


I awarded it because you have helped other people, not me. It's not just the victim who can award them... E9

I am aware of that, what I was asking was who in particular I helped that made you award it? --Deskana (talk) 17:22, 24 December 2006 (UTC)
Everyone, I noticed that everyone was happy that you had helped them so I checked your contributions and decided to award you the RAOK. Also, I think it's only fair to give everyone a Barnstar and you fit the description for that one. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by E9 (talkcontribs) 17:28, 24 December 2006 (UTC).


what do you mean...? - Dasnedius 17:34, 24 December 2006 (UTC)

I mean you'll get blocked. Simple. --Deskana (talk) 17:47, 24 December 2006 (UTC)

A much as hate your strictness. I admire and respect your swift and sure handling of troublemakers. -- Dasnedius 18:03, 24 December 2006 (UTC)

You're about a hair away from getting blocked for being a sockpuppet yourself. Watch it. --Deskana (talk) 18:35, 24 December 2006 (UTC)
Who could I be a sock of? -- Dasnedius 20:03, 24 December 2006 (UTC)
You share an IP address with General Cui. Go figure. --Deskana (talk) 20:04, 24 December 2006 (UTC)
Who is General Cui? -- Dasnedius 20:07, 24 December 2006 (UTC)

I have had enough of talking to you. --Deskana (talk) 20:08, 24 December 2006 (UTC)

Removing messages

See my talk page. It seems the consensus on talk pages is that they're public property and while it's acceptable, messgaes should not be removed unless they are vandalism. GOD you must think I'm suicidal to say this to an admin... but I am in favour of WP:AGF and must therefore assume you don't know the policy. Sorry. E9

If you're talking about the message I just removed, it was from a guy who is now indefblocked as a sockpuppet. So if you've quite finished getting your kicks out of warning experienced administrators, I would appreciate you taking more care before you go warning people. --Deskana (talk) 17:46, 24 December 2006 (UTC)
Have you read the article on yourself lately? Wikipedia:Administrators... E9
You are no position to lecture me. If you're just here to try to antagonise me, just leave me alone. --Deskana (talk) 12:56, 25 December 2006 (UTC)
You think I'm lecturing you. I didn't write it. I'm assuming you actually clicked the link, of course. And if you win this argument by blocking me, at least I will have gained the victory of you not having thought of an answer. I'm not trying to antagonise you but (1) It says at the top you will remove messages and (2) Administrators must not use their superior rights to resolve disputes. Therefore if you block me you'll also be in the wrong. And do you think I like arguing and antagonising people? Actually I'm trying to get an experienced administrator to read the policies of the site he's an administrator of. Call me abusive, block me, fine. You have no right to and I have no reason to come back to Wikipedia - or at least contribute to it - if the people responsible for running it don't obey their own rules.
Where on earth did you get the idea that I'd block you? I am well versed in the rules, and understand what is expected of me. I don't need you, a user with collossal 7 edits in the article namespace (the thing that actually makes Wikipedia) to lecture me on standards (especially since you've decided it's alright to ignore a standard yourself, WP:SIG). If you don't like me and want to leave Wikipedia for that reason, it's a shame, but it really is your loss. I have nothing further to say on this matter, so do not expect a further reply to anything you say. --Deskana (talk) 15:23, 26 December 2006 (UTC)
I didn't mean to ingore that one. If my signature is still that big, I apologise. I thought I'd changed it back to default. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by E9 (talkcontribs) 17:54, 4 January 2007 (UTC).


...for fixing my monobook.css -- much appreciated! Xiner (talk, email) 17:51, 24 December 2006 (UTC)

No problem. --Deskana (talk) 17:52, 24 December 2006 (UTC)

I have a sock puppet to tell you about.

This user is a sockpuppet of the user Frieza-Bomber. I noticed that you had blocked Frieza-Bomber multiple times and I just wanted to let you know. Merry Christmas!--CJ King 20:40, 24 December 2006 (UTC)

Excellent, that might help me with something. --Deskana (talk) 20:55, 24 December 2006 (UTC)

May as well just stick this under here. Zarbon just started doing his thing as, just in case you feel like blocking him. Nemu 20:57, 24 December 2006 (UTC)

Ah, marvelous. Got that one too. I'm still trying to solve my other problem though. --Deskana (talk) 20:59, 24 December 2006 (UTC)

What's that? Maybe I can help.--Merry Christmas! CJ King 22:23, 24 December 2006 (UTC)

Doesn't matter. Turns out it was Taracka. As much I missed his totally over the top drama style of talking, I prefer to think of him as totally silenced. --Deskana (talk) 22:30, 24 December 2006 (UTC)

User:Clever curmudgeon/User:Mactabbed latest sockpuppet

Greetings Deskana, would you kindly indef. block Open stakes (talk • contribs • deleted contribs • nuke contribs • logs • filter log • block user • block log) per this talk? Thanks. (Netscott) 00:16, 25 December 2006 (UTC)

This sock has been indef. blocked. Take it easy and Happy Holidays! :-) (Netscott) 02:37, 25 December 2006 (UTC)


That would be nice, yes. Thank you, and Merry Christmas.

Daishokaioshin 20:55, 25 December 2006 (UTC)

Regarding that one, would you care to comment at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents#Dragonball socks?, by any chance? Luna Santin 09:50, 26 December 2006 (UTC)
Thanks for bringing that to my attention. --Deskana (talk) 13:40, 26 December 2006 (UTC)

I'm borrowing your editor review banner

If you wrote it yourself, my apologies. You're an awfully "big dog" around here (at least in my eyes), so please don't bark at me. I'll be happy to remove it. NinaEliza (talk contribs logs) 23:41, 26 December 2006 (UTC)

I mean you're a well-respected admin who is highly influential in his actions because of it. Once again, that's in my eyes alone, but perhaps it's also true in the eyes of others. My little attempt at being poetic was a gentle reminder of that, and a small comment about being terse, and sometimes a little intimidating. I've been here two months, so what do I know. NinaEliza (talk contribs logs) 00:27, 27 December 2006 (UTC)
Please note my name change. Long story, and believe me - you don't care. Thanks.Nina Odell 16:22, 30 December 2006 (UTC)
Just look at all the trouble you've caused. It's okay, though, because I forgive you:). Here's a whacking stick for the New Year. Nina Odell 18:03, 31 December 2006 (UTC)
I think I'm going to have a read up on that too, even though I'm not an admin yet! Face-smile.svg Yuser31415 07:03, 1 January 2007 (UTC)

Happy New Year!

Just dropping by and I thought I'd wish you a happy New Year! All the best and happy editing in 2007! Yuser31415 07:08, 1 January 2007 (UTC)

WP:RfA and my signature

Dear Deskana,

I understand my signature is a little bit awkward. In fact, I had only put this signature for a test drive and attempt to receive comments from others. However, until your comment comes, I had receive no comments complaining about my signature. The only ones are positive. After all, I think it is unfair to judge someone by their signatures, especially they are in a test drive.

--Smcafirst or NickSignChit-ChatI give at 00:09, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

That signature is ridiculous. End of discussion. I tried putting it nicer but you didn't seem to understand. --Deskana (For Great Justice!) 00:31, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

Could you review my non-admin AfD closure, please?

I closed this AfD as non-admin speedy snowball keep. If you have the time, could you have a quick look and tell me if I did it right? Cheers! Yuser31415 06:11, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, that's fine. Good work. --Deskana (For Great Justice!) 11:29, 3 January 2007 (UTC)
Cool! My first AfD closure! :) Yuser31415 19:24, 3 January 2007 (UTC)
Keep at it. AfD is always backlogged. As long as you only close the unanimous keeps you'll be fine. I'm sure you already know that but I just thought I'd mention it :-) --Deskana (For Great Justice!) 19:59, 3 January 2007 (UTC)
Sounds like a good idea. :) Yuser31415 20:30, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

I'm famous!

I have no idea how, but I appear to be quoted the Wikipedia Signpost article about the closure of Esperanza, found here. Were there only two people who had any good reasons for keeping the project? :S Yuser31415 23:01, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

You're famous :-) --Deskana (For Great Justice!) 23:20, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

You quite rightly corrected user mumbojumbo (?) on his edit comment, but I feel I have to jump to his defence for a moment. If you take a look at the pages edit history and talk page, you can see that this incorrect comment was most likely caused by wikistress. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Martijn Hoekstra (talkcontribs) 15:01, 6 January 2007 (UTC).

Admin abuse

User:ohnoitsjamie has been blocking users indefinitely without warning. I have recieved neumorous reports of this as well as being blocked for adding false information. I wasn't aware the information was false but was blocked indefinitely anyhow. I have reported this to several other administrators. This user refuses to admit he is blocking people without cause. I was told to post on the Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents page. Any help you can provide will be appriciated.

Thanks for the assistance in regards to my user page!. Just H 12:18, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

Thank you!

Thank you for your kind comments; yes, I do look around at your edits. Perhaps it's easier for me to do some things you might find harder because you have an involvement with more users than me (and I think you know what I'm talking about here :). I will most certainly ask you if I need any help! Yuser31415 21:43, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

Protecting WP:ANI

Thanks. The IP vandal on WP:ANI is 99.9% likely User:Marshal2.0 aka User:Marshalbannana aka User:Jacknicholson. Another editor resolved the issue which caused me to add the WP:ANI entry (WP:ANI#Retributive sockpuppet accusation). — jesup 22:03, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

You can probably unprotect WP:ANI now; the case Marshal2.0/etc (as anon-IP) kept trying to remove has now been archived. Of course, he's now moved on to vandalizing my user page.... :-( That'll teach me for trying to help enforce the rules. And I was all ready to let him off the hook a couple of weeks ago (and said so on the puppet case against him at WP:Wikipedia:Suspected sock puppets/Jacknicholson(2nd)). — jesup 06:30, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

He's doing it again

Some proof as to how User:Recoome may very well be User:Zarbon

Here. FIRST!--->If you look at the one's dated October 22nd - October 25th (or so), A User:Recoome suddenly appeared out of nowhere and reverted a DB article (it was either Dodoria's, Kiwi, or Zarbon (Dragon Ball)'s article) to a version by User:Zarbon or his sockpuppet with User:KojiDude reverting the page and saying in his edit summary (rv trolling from possible sock-puppet of banned user), and Recoome continued reverting DB articles as a WP:Troll would for a blocked/banned user and so forth up onto October 25th. Basically, I've really tried to use the CheckUser on this guy and when I do it, it comes up generally as an error. Ergo, you can easily tell that he is either a sockpuppet or meatpuppt of User:Zarbon simply by reading his: edit summaries, the way he signs his post, his talk messages, his somewhat nasty and/or uncivil comments, and maybe other similarities which I have yet to find out... So, PLEASE! using that evidence that I gave you, can ya request CheckUser on him? Honestly, I've actually tried at least three or four times, and it's SOOO complicated (with the IP, digits and numbers and all...) PL(DB) 20:37, 9 January 2007 (UTC)

I really don't understand the confusion that most people seem to get regarding checkuser. Watch and learn :-) --Deskana (For Great Justice!) 20:40, 9 January 2007 (UTC)
By the way, while I'm doing this, can you find a sockpuppet recently confirmed to be Zarbon? Zarbon's account may be too old to check against. --Deskana (For Great Justice!) 20:41, 9 January 2007 (UTC)
I thought Zarbon's IP was autoblocked. Was I wrong? Yuser31415 20:46, 9 January 2007 (UTC)
Sure. Also about (TestTemplates) you spoke of, I haven't even thrown them around to vandals recently since I've been busy updating some pages... PL(DB) 20:41, 9 January 2007 (UTC)
Um, did you want an IP address of his? All I got's a User:Dodoria (blocked by Darcy) and a (which ya blocked for a week)... oh! User:Recoome has revealed on his user page that his IP address is Will that help? PL(DB) 20:47, 9 January 2007 (UTC)
So Deskana, it seems that you're an expert when it comes to CheckUser because I have no idea what you just did... But thanks! At least I didn't make a baseless accusation this time, right? Also as I mentioned earlier, is revealed to be Recoome's IP adress according to his User page. Ya think that should be included at that complicated CheckUser you created or taken into consideration? PL(DB) 21:00, 9 January 2007 (UTC)


Thank you :). BTW, where did the term 'forgive and forget, the Wiki[pedia] way?' come from?

Cheers! Yuser31415 21:30, 9 January 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the IRC invitation! I'd love to come on sometime, but not just now, if that's okay ... now I know how to get hold of you if I need to have a relatively private conversation about vandals who are being Zarbons :). I'll drop in sometime. Cheers! Yuser31415 21:41, 9 January 2007 (UTC)
Be sure I will! Face-smile.svg Yuser31415 21:43, 9 January 2007 (UTC)
Hang on. So I'm 20, you're 18, and Yuser's 13? I wonder how old Someguy0830 is? Hmmm... Anyways, that Zarbons thing was funny how ya put it Yuser! lol PL(DB) 21:45, 9 January 2007 (UTC)

Looks like you've pissed someone off

Congratulations, you must have done something right :) SirFozzie 00:24, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

Hate to ask...

But it looks like the report about the latest JB196 socks (he's run through about 8 up till now) on AN/I has slipped through the cracks (understandable, with all the anon vandals and drama that's been going on). Would you mind taking a look and doing the needful actions? [[1]] (see Wikipedia:Long term abuse/JB196‎ for a full recap of all JB has been up to lately. Thanks.

Please file a Checkuser report. I will be happy to act upon the results. --Deskana (For Great Justice!) 11:44, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

Two Tupacs

There are two of them: Tupac (disambiguation) and Tupac. Um, shouldn't there be a deletion of one so that there's a history merge? I'm not what to request out of it. I'll let you decide that, sire. (Me | The Article) 19:02, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

Pretty easy decision. Tupac (disambiguation) had more links on it so I just redirected Tupac to that. --Deskana (For Great Justice!) 19:07, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
No, no. I mean, shouldn't Tupac (disambiguation) redirect to Tupac? I don't know what the hell you just did, though. The reason being, there's no need for two of 'em since the parenthesis isn't necessary, ya know... (Me | The Article) 20:09, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
{{sofixit}} --Deskana (For Great Justice!) 20:10, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
Seems that a history merge needs to take place. Could you delete the Tupac (disambiguation) article and merge the page and its' history there to Tupac? (Me | The Article) 20:16, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
A history merge? That's a little over the top for a disambiguation page... perhaps a bit drastic. I'll do something else, hold on. --Deskana (For Great Justice!) 20:17, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
There. Happy now? --Deskana (For Great Justice!) 20:19, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
I'm thrilled! It is superficialous (whatever) to have to type Tupac (disamg.) when ya wanna see a disambiguation page of an article. (Me | The Article) 20:22, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

Oops, thanks...

Thanks for moving my warning from User:Big boy Bad boy to User_talk:Big boy Bad boy... guess I wasn't paying attention when I clicked to leave it. I think I did the same to the other user who I was warning about the same page... I'll fix that one. My brain must have been affected by all the silly vandalism I've been fixing today.

What was your question after all that? Thanks! Yuser31415 02:51, 12 January 2007 (UTC)
Regarding my blanking of my user talk page. I really wanna get this question answered and over with because I just wanna refresh it all (without ANYONE warning me for it). How 'bout this: If I do get warned, will you back me up Yuser? (Me | The Article) 03:24, 12 January 2007 (UTC)
Answer me this: if I archive your talk page, will you trust that I've done it the Right Way? Yuser31415 03:27, 12 January 2007 (UTC)
Look, I've been told that I can blank my talk page if I wanted to. But I might get warned for it. I need you guys to back me up for it. I DON'T want to archive. I WANNA refresh! Is that too much to ask? (Me | The Article) 03:32, 12 January 2007 (UTC)
Do you mean, remove all the comments for good, or clearing your talk page and moving the old comments to a subpage of your talk, out of the road? Yuser31415 03:36, 12 January 2007 (UTC)
YES! YES! I wanna blank my entire user talk page. Besides, it'll still be on the history, right? I'll do this then, I'll archive it, and then blank it. Or should I just blank it now without archiving the rest? (Me | The Article) 03:41, 12 January 2007 (UTC)

Three things :)

Hi Deskana, just to ask you two things:

  1. Did I close Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Troll organization correctly, since this might be slightly more controversial than the other AfD's I've closed?
  2. When redirecting like I did, what should I do with the talk page (Talk:Troll organization)? Redirect it also or simply leave it as is?

And to tell you one thing:

  1. I have successfully worked out how to use IRC (on a very basic level, I haven't used it very much before). So if you're ever feeling like a chat or want to get hold of me privately, please let me know on my talk page.


Yuser31415 05:39, 13 January 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for your reply!
  1. Yes, I will attempt to stick to (relatively) noncontroversial XfDs so as not to get into trouble with the Law.
  2. I redirected Talk:Troll organization to Talk:Troll (Internet). Hope that was the correct thing to do in the circumstances.
Cheers! Yuser31415 21:06, 13 January 2007 (UTC)

My userpage

Um, I didn't mean that I wanted to move/rename the page to my talk page. Can my userpage be deleted after I copy/paste every thing there to my user talk page? If deleting it isn't allowed after all this time, can I at least have it redirected to my user talk page? I will place the power levels, userboxes, etc., and everything else that is on there to my talk page. How 'bout it? (Me | The Article) 22:00, 13 January 2007 (UTC)

That isn't an appopriate use of your talk page. If you really must have that stuff somewhere (I don't approve of it incidentally, but ultimately my opinion matters not), then it should be on your userpage, not your talk page. --Deskana (request backup) 22:37, 13 January 2007 (UTC)
So, it really isn't against any laws/policies/rules if I were to copy/paste everything from my user page to my user talk page? Is there someone else I should confirm this with? Maybe... (Me | The Article) 00:28, 14 January 2007 (UTC)
Your talk page should mostly consist of messages from other users. 12 sections of completely unrelated material will make it rather confusing for people who want to use your talk page. Kusma (討論) 07:35, 14 January 2007 (UTC)
No, I'm telling you you're not allowed, PL. It's that simple. It is inappropriate. --Deskana (request backup) 12:18, 14 January 2007 (UTC)

A little problem at Talk:Grandpa Gohan

Hey, Deskana. We seem to have a little problem over at Talk:Grandpa Gohan. User:Power level (Dragon Ball) had requested moving the article a few days ago but the results ended up as keep. And today (or yesterday), User:DesireCampbell opened the same poll again. I was wondering if you would could step in and talk to them a bit. They might listen to an administrator such as yourself. Thanks in advance, no matter what your answer may be, and I hope you have a great '07! // PoeticDecay 16:58, 15 January 2007 (UTC)

That is no problem, I closed the poll myself and urged them to debate in a standard manner. Yuser31415 20:01, 15 January 2007 (UTC)
Um Yuser, you could have talked to DesireCampbell before ya did that again. No offense to you, but the talk page is being cluttered again with a closed poll. Isn't that bad? Power level (Dragon Ball) 20:10, 15 January 2007 (UTC)
Hi. Might I suggest that there's nothing non-"standard" about following the directions at WP:RM for controversial moves? -GTBacchus(talk) 21:31, 15 January 2007 (UTC)
Unless it's in blatant violation of WP:NOT a democracy, and against the very philosophies held by many Wikipedians? Yuser31415 03:11, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

I didn't really have time to read this. If it's urgent, please take it to WP:ANI. See the notice at the top of this page. --Deskana (request backup) 15:59, 17 January 2007 (UTC)

No worries, it's just ... WikiDemocracy. :S Yuser31415 21:12, 17 January 2007 (UTC)

Get down (disambiguation)

Hi. I need this moved to Get Down (I couldn't do it! I tried at least three times). I made "Get Down" a disambig. page without the parenthesis.

By the way, if ya could, can you fix up the "Get Down" page? I couldn' t tell if it was too overlinked or whatnot. Thanks! Power level (Dragon Ball) 00:43, 18 January 2007 (UTC)

I'm guessing a history merge from the original Get Down disambig. page would be too much also? Power level (Dragon Ball) 00:59, 18 January 2007 (UTC)
Please don't copy text from one article and paste it into another. This violates the GFDL, which all contributions to Wikipedia are licensed under. I know you tried to use the page move function first, which is the right way to do it, but if the page move function doesn't work for whatever reason, you should contact an administrator and take no further action.
I believe I've fixed this problem now anyway. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. --Deskana (request backup) 17:30, 19 January 2007 (UTC)
Thanks for your message. The revert you did (no offense) was made under an inactive guideline/policy. Could you explain why I really can't have it as I intended to? It redirects to the article anyways only if you were to click the link below. Power level (Dragon Ball) 18:35, 19 January 2007 (UTC)
I explained it to you already. Just because there is no guideline that specifically prohibits it doesn't mean it's a good idea. For example, there is no Wikipedia:Administrators should not replace Main Page with Jesus but curiously I've managed to resist the temptation to do that so far. It is potentially confusing and serves no useful purpose. --Deskana (request backup) 19:41, 19 January 2007 (UTC)
Don't tempt me ... Face-smile.svg Yuser31415 22:29, 19 January 2007 (UTC)


Hi Dan. I'm sure no one wants to discuss Rob again, however Smeelgova has added a Welcome template to User talk:Robsteadman which seems a bit silly. I'll talk to him if you like but I thought you might just prefer to delete the history again. Its up to you. Let me know if you want me to do something. Frelke 12:47, 19 January 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up. I deleted the page. --Deskana (request backup) 17:30, 19 January 2007 (UTC)
And one more. What to do? Frelke 11:12, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

Oh dear :). Yuser31415 23:01, 19 January 2007 (UTC)


We don't have an administrator as part of our project and we need one, for example when we had User:Jrapidfire vandalizing the Broly related pages, we had to wait until User:Deathphoenix blocked him, in the meantime he was vandalizing pages all over the place, so if you can please join :)--Dark Dragon Flame 23:30, 20 January 2007 (UTC)


I looked through the users edits yesterday as per this. I deleted three future episodes with no known air date but they didn't appear to notice. I see that since then they have uploaded 24 new images incorrectly tagged. I left them a message at User talk:TSLcrazier#Problems and have warned them about their actions. In general though I think they may be a younger person, see their user page and the only 3 times they commented on a talk page her, here and here. I thought at first it was just sombody ignoring everything until I found this. I'll keep a watch on them. CambridgeBayWeather (Talk) 12:58, 21 January 2007 (UTC)

I don't really think that my comments will get much in the way of results. They were already blocked for a week and it didn't make a difference. CambridgeBayWeather (Talk) 13:15, 21 January 2007 (UTC)

Some users just come here to cause trouble ... Yuser31415 19:23, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

A request

Are you online at this time, Deskana? I want to ask you something. Yuser31415 20:32, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

Go for it. --Deskana (request backup) 20:32, 22 January 2007 (UTC)
Okay then. I closed Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Brown people as "Keep", and added the "Oldafdfull" tag to the talk page of that article. For some reason that I fail to understand, the article is protected, ie. not letting me remove the AfD notice. I'd appreciate if you could do that for me. Cheers! Yuser31415 20:36, 22 January 2007 (UTC)
Done. I'd warn you that you can get yourself into a potentially messy situation by closing an AfD like that. Yes, I do agree with your assessment of the situation, but please do be careful. --Deskana (request backup) 20:46, 22 January 2007 (UTC)
Thanks for all your work :) and the warning. By the way, how do you mean when you say "messy situation" ... (Pardon me for being WP:DENSE.) Cheers! Yuser31415 20:52, 22 January 2007 (UTC)
If you don't stick to clearly unambiguous keeps, you can get people shouting a fuss at you for closing the AfD inappropriately. By clearly unambiguous, I mean near 100% keep votes. I had to do a bit of looking into the article to come to the consensus you got. Don't get me wrong, I agree with your summary of the situation, but it's my opinion that that sort of closure should come from an administrator. --Deskana (request backup) 21:05, 22 January 2007 (UTC)
Thank you, I will remember your advice. In case you are interested, my RfA was exactly one month ago today. Yuser31415 21:12, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

Another possible User:Zarbon... has recently edited article pages from September to October that Zarbon once edited. I'm sure you're familiar with The Sopranos, right? Never mind that, few days ago, the anon IP edited Zarbon's userpage. I just tagged the IP's userpage and warned the person on the talk page that editing one's userpage isn't allowed without the authorization of said user. Hope I did the right thing Deskana... Power level (Dragon Ball) 20:48, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

I've seen that list before, it's Zarbon's. One month soft block. Thanks for the heads up. Infact, due to that, I'm now in the process of customising my favourite block template (Template:Block-reason) to accomodate banning someone for being a sockpuppet. --Deskana (request backup) 20:59, 22 January 2007 (UTC)
Just wondering... you know that User:Zarbon spoke to a Mr. Darcy (another admin.) about being unblocked, right? It was apparently declined by another user (I think it also was an admin. who gave his/her opinion about the request) Anyways, were you gonna propose a community ban or somethin'? He was recently editing Wikipedia using other IPs ya know. I'm just curious about your thoughts about it, that's all... Power level (Dragon Ball) 03:20, 23 January 2007 (UTC)
You could try proposing it yourself, if you like. I mean, we block his socks on sight, so perhaps formalising the process might be a good idea. --Deskana (request backup) 03:21, 23 January 2007 (UTC)
Uh, it's alright. I was only gonna support the ban if you were gonna propose it. I don't feel like having all that trouble to begin it (besides, I fear that I still have enemies around and those enemies may want me blocked/banned for good as well). So, never mind it... Power level (Dragon Ball) 03:28, 23 January 2007 (UTC)
I'll consider proposing a ban for Zarbon. It's 3:30am here and I'm pretty tired at the minute. Perhaps tomorrow. And don't worry about people trying to get you blocked or banned, all you need to do is make sure you don't give them a reason to. Stay on your best behaviour and such. Don't worry too much :-) --Deskana (request backup) 03:29, 23 January 2007 (UTC)
Hi PLDB, let me know if someone's trying to get you banned and I'll step in ... Yuser31415 04:51, 23 January 2007 (UTC)

Brown people

I only reverted because the afd needed closing on the article page itself, I agree that keep was the only choice given the way the vote went, and wasnt disputing that, SqueakBox 21:02, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

Never mind, no hard feelings Face-smile.svg. Indeed, I did not realize myself that the page was protected until I closed the AfD; I brought the matter here so Deskana (who is an admin) could remove the tag for me. Yuser31415 21:15, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

I've left a question on your RFB, mostly because I had the feeling that you needed to be a bit less modest and indicate to everyone why you should be a bureaucrat. Titoxd(?!?) 03:03, 23 January 2007 (UTC)

Hello. Just wanted to give you moral support in your RfB, even though I !voted against you. I don't know you, but you're probably a good admin. I just have high standards for b'crats, and like I said, I don't really see a need for more of them. But props to you for sticking your neck out and trying.
