Holiday cheer[edit]

Christmas tree.svg Holiday Cheer
Michael Q. Schmidt my talk page is wishing you Season's Greetings! This message celebrates the holiday season, promotes WikiLove, and hopefully makes your day a little better. Spread the seasonal good cheer by wishing another user a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, whether it be someone you have had disagreements with in the past, a good friend, or just some random person. Share the good feelings.


I'd like to point out that banned and blocked users do not need to have a completed SPI to remove the comment itself [[1]]. I plan on reverting you in a little bit provided you don't have a reason to believe that I'm wrong in my assessment. The behaviors and language is the same as previous socks and as I mentioned at the SPI the only reason I filed the SPU was to check and make sure we didn't have a new farm growing.

The SPI is closed with no further action to be taken, they said themselves that it could just as likely be a result of canvassing, or a meat. Closing admins aren't dumb, they'll take into account that it's an SPA, whatever the reason for it being an SPA is. Dylanfromthenorth (talk) 04:09, 24 November 2014 (UTC)
I don't think they are stupid but the meatpuppetry policy also explicitly deals with it [[2]] where it states that in cases of doubt to treat them the same way as per the finding of this arbcom case [[3]]. That's two seperate cases, I am waiting on a clarifying comment but it is still my intention to revert it when I have that comment based off of WP:EVADE. Sorry but my good faith for this person completely left when they tried saying I have ties to the KKK. Hell in a Bucket (talk) 04:49, 24 November 2014 (UTC)
I had the clarification I needed and it was that it was ok to remove it, before I do that I want to ask, do you have any reason to believe it's not a sock or was this just AGF? Hell in a Bucket (talk) 14:23, 24 November 2014 (UTC)
Neither really. I'm sure it's someone who's up to some flavour of no good, but thought it would be better to leave the comment up and let the closing admin decide its validity, while still giving them the info. I'm not particularly attached to the comment though, and (deliberately) don't involve myself in too much sockpuppetry stuff (life's stressful enough!), so feel free to re-remove it if that's what the protocol is. :-) Dylanfromthenorth (talk) 14:51, 24 November 2014 (UTC)
Ok thank you, I am fairly involved with the sock puppet investigation side of things as I do new page patrol and they seem to pop up often there. I just wanted to make sure so I didn't dig myself or anyone else a hole we don't need to fill lol. Cheers. Hell in a Bucket (talk) 14:56, 24 November 2014 (UTC)

deOrphaning script[edit]

Hello everyone! I was just working on responding to a couple bug reports for a script that I worked up as part of a request from this project, and I noticed that only a couple people (who weren't even on this mailing list) are actually using the script. A little history on the script: In March of 2014, Jim Cartar came to my user talk page and said he needed some help in acquiring a script for a backlog drive that he was working on that could keep track of and score deOrphanings for a scored backlog drive. I took that request to the project's talk page (BackLog Drive "DO" (De-Orphaning) script proposal) and there was near unanimous support for this. I thought about the proposal and decided the best way to do it was to build a new script (which is still no where near as comprehensive as Manishearth's OrphanTabs) and build into it a mechanism that will make BLD scoring easy.

What I'm wondering at this point is, since there appears to be only two people using the script, should I continue to develop this script with a goal of using it for scoring BLDs or just debug the existing script and leave it at that. Thanks for any replies or comments.

If you wish to opt-out of future mailings, please remove yourself from the mailing list or alternatively to opt-out of all massmessage mailings, you may add Category:Opted-out of message delivery to your user talk page.
