You seemed pretty supportive towards the move on Wonder Pets! until you thought Momsandy was "disruptively" moving things around and you got angry. In my opinion, you seem biased based on the user who started the move request, not the topic itself. (talk) 19:12, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

It also seems to me that you are, in a way, intentionally harassing this MomSandy user for no good reason. I feel that you should stay out of this discussion, as your posts are always negative and, frankly, insulting towards this user. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:14, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

A repetitive move request is by policy considered disruptive, as Momsandy has been advised. She has the ability to prevent being blocked the panda ɛˢˡ” 19:17, 26 September 2014 (UTC)
Blocked? MomSandy isn't doing anything wrong - "consensus" was never reached and the discussion leader should have been notified before it was closed for no reason. You are acting like someone who should be blocked right now for being so harsh to Momsandy - I have reviewed the user's edit history and they are all good-faith. It appears that Momsandy is just a big fan of "Wonder Pets!" and wants the title to be spelled according to all official sources instead of the current, incorrect spelling. Also, the user does not seem to have much experience talking to other users on Wikipedia, and your actions towards Momsandy fall under the US cyberbullying identification methods. I am assuming Momsandy is likely younger than you; if you were speaking to this person in real life, would you act so churlishly? Remember the topic - the correctly spelled title - and not your anger towards the user. Sorry for the long post. (talk) 19:21, 26 September 2014 (UTC)
Yes she is. "No consensus" is a valid community decision. Only people who don't understand Wikipedia's processes think differently. I've closed hundreds of AFD's as "no consensus" - that does not mean "try again" the panda ɛˢˡ” 19:26, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

Also, this AussieLegend person seems to be editing at the exact same moments as Panda - are you sure there's no sockpuppeting or talking-to-a-friend-and-telling-them-what-to-say involved here? (talk) 19:24, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

You're accusing an admin of having a sockpuppet account from a different country? Please; go ahead and file your WP:SPI before suggesting such, as that accusation is indeed a personal attack the panda ɛˢˡ” 19:27, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

"Yes she is" means what here, exactly? I think that if "no consensus" happens, shouldn't it be tried once more later on? Also, take into account the things I said about cyberbullying here. Also, I did not accuse you of sock puppetry - what if you're influencing this person? I saw an accusation like that on the Wonder Pets! talk page, and you're the one attacking MomSandy here. If someone looked into this, they'd see how you treated the user. (talk) 19:29, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

"Yes she is" means she is being disruptive. She was advised 2 weeks ago that her various move requests were disruptive, and that she needed to stop them. As such, this new request is a violation of that warning. How the fuck am I influencing someone halfway across the globe? I'm at work. I do not control how the 1.4million editors of Wikipedia spend their days, nor do I control where and how they edit. You accused of both WP:SOCK and WP:MEAT with no evidence. And note: I have not EVER "attacked" Momsandy at any point. Zero times. Never. the panda ɛˢˡ” 19:34, 26 September 2014 (UTC)
Now it seems that your comments to me are attacking. Check Wikipedia's guidelines and qualifications for attacks - please stop this nonsense! (talk) 19:38, 26 September 2014 (UTC)
I think you need a better review of WP:NPA ... perhaps you should run for admin with your current level of knowledge of NPA and CONSENSUS. Momsandy might mean well, but competence and understanding of policy is still required the panda ɛˢˡ” 19:56, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

gentle bite
Thank you for greeting new users, for dealing with deletions, for a clear view in heat, for biting gently inspite of your shooting user name, for wisdom about apologising, "mixing humour and instruction", for missing, - you are an awesome Wikipedian!

A year ago, you were the 632nd recipient of my PumpkinSky Prize, --Gerda Arendt (talk) 11:40, 13 October 2014 (UTC)

@Gerda Arendt: I thought you were very kind to give that award a year ago, and you're very kind to drop by again today. I'm not feeling very loved this morning (I was inches away from performing a personal attack then blocking myself for the personal attack), so this certainly invokes a warm fuzziness. the panda ɛˢˡ” 14:32, 14 October 2014 (UTC)
Nice to tell me that ;) - pass the feeling on, if you can, how about Lecen whom I met long ago, comrads in mourning? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 14:47, 14 October 2014 (UTC)

Copyright checks when performing AfC reviews[edit]

Hello EatsShootsAndLeaves. This message is part of a mass mailing to people who appear active in reviewing articles for creation submissions. First of all, thank you for taking part in this important work! I'm sorry this message is a form letter – it really was the only way I could think of to covey the issue economically. Of course, this also means that I have not looked to see whether the matter is applicable to you in particular.

The issue is in rather large numbers of copyright violations ("copyvios") making their way through AfC reviews without being detected (even when easy to check, and even when hallmarks of copyvios in the text that should have invited a check, were glaring). A second issue is the correct method of dealing with them when discovered.

If you don't do so already, I'd like to ask for your to help with this problem by taking on the practice of performing a copyvio check as the first step in any AfC review. The most basic method is to simply copy a unique but small portion of text from the draft body and run it through a search engine in quotation marks. Trying this from two different paragraphs is recommended. (If you have any question about whether the text was copied from the draft, rather than the other way around (a "backwards copyvio"), the Wayback Machine is very useful for sussing that out.)

If you do find a copyright violation, please do not decline the draft on that basis. Copyright violations need to be dealt with immediately as they may harm those whose content is being used and expose Wikipedia to potential legal liability. If the draft is substantially a copyvio, and there's no non-infringing version to revert to, please mark the page for speedy deletion right away using {{db-g12|url=URL of source}}. If there is an assertion of permission, please replace the draft article's content with {{subst:copyvio|url=URL of source}}.

Some of the more obvious indicia of a copyvio are use of the first person ("we/our/us..."), phrases like "this site", or apparent artifacts of content written for somewhere else ("top", "go to top", "next page", "click here", use of smartquotes, etc.); inappropriate tone of voice, such as an overly informal tone or a very slanted marketing voice with weasel words; including intellectual property symbols (™,®); and blocks of text being added all at once in a finished form with no misspellings or other errors.

I hope this message finds you well and thanks again you for your efforts in this area. Best regards--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 02:20, 18 November 2014 (UTC).

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
