Donny the Punk[edit]

I see you say that you knew Donny. I met him in 1995 not that long before he died. He recrutied me to the board of Stop Prisoner Rape, which I'm still on (but for a short break for term limits). He was a fascinating guy.

Donnys bio[edit]

The way you put the Boy Scout experience is probably just right. It probably wasn't the whole troop anyway. My description belongs on the talk page if anywhere. It's just more colorful.

After completing the article, I'm going to blog an annotated version with additional details that I couldn't find sources for, such as that the scoutmaster's son was one of his beneficiaries. I hope you'll join in too. (FYI, my blogs are [[1]] and [[2]]. Espertus (talk) 03:04, 22 March 2008 (UTC)

Re: Stephen Donaldson[edit]

I've used Wikipedia:AutoWikiBrowser for that edit, actually, so all those minor fixes were done automatically. It wasn't the intention of the program to merge two paragraphs, tho, so I fixed my mistake and filed a bug report. Thanks for noticing me. :) --Conti| 14:48, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

I see this is the second time (that we know of) that Stephen Donaldson has gotten its blockquote hit by editors with AWB. Thank you for bringing it to my attention. I will definitely be watching for this problem in the future, and I will study the "known bugs" section more thoroughly. Let's hope the next version of AWB fixes this. My apologies for the problem—I'll stop by to make sure someone has reverted my edit. --AnnaFrance (talk) 18:25, 31 May 2008 (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.
