Esperanza Banner[edit]

You're welcome, but it really wasn't that much. I wouldn't have thought of the idea of a banner myself, so all the thanks should go to you! :) Titoxd(?!?) 00:14, 5 October 2005 (UTC)

Advisory Committee election deadline set[edit]

Our new admin general, Essjay, has set the date for the advisory committee elections, that date being October 7th. By UTC it is October 5th right now. So see WP:ESP/E for voting in two days, and add yourself to the list if you're interested in running. On a personal note, I'm considering running, as I only resigned as admin general because of time. I'm sure I could help out on the advisory committee... Anywho, watchlist that page, and be sure to read the voting method too. Regards, Redwolf24 (talk) 01:07, 5 October 2005 (UTC)

The Esperanza template.[edit]

Just to let you know I've adopted you Esperanza template. I used to have Bratshe's one but another Wikipedian complained about it for some reason, so I am using yours now. 'tis a good idea, these templates. Also, I noticed you are in charge of wikistress searching, I would be glad to help. Cheers Banes 18:26, 5 October 2005 (UTC)

Stress level 4[edit]

For the most part no, but yours or others support would be appreciated at WP:CFD Millenial Wikipedians merge vote. It's a user category, I remeber when user pages were sacrosanct, but they are apparently not so any more. A few weeks ago they tried to get rid of this category through deletion, only to fail to reach consensus, now they are trying to merge it into a category that is one sixth its size on the bogus idea that this term is controversial and the other is not. CFD is one of the most aggressive enviroments at wikipedia so I usually stay away from it but, I don't want CFD on my user page anymore than I want the government in my bedroom. -JCarriker 06:41, 6 October 2005 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

WikiThanks.png Thanks for that barnstar...it was really appreciated. You do great work on Wikipedia too! :-) --HappyCamper 14:42, 9 October 2005 (UTC)

Advisory Committee[edit]

Thank you very much for giving me your full support during the Esperanza Advisory Committee Election. I'll do my best to make you proud. :) Acetic'Acid 21:01, 14 October 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for the support[edit]

I made it into the admin club. I will try my best to keep it clean.  Denelson83  22:24, 14 October 2005 (UTC)

Esperanza Spam[edit]

Hello Esperanzians! A few announcements.

The Advisory Committee election results are in. In tranch A are Acetic Acid and Flcelloguy. In tranch B are Ryan Norton and Bratsche.

My other annoouncement is that our founder, JCarriker, has founded Esperanza's sister project, Wikipediology. I have written two essays here (my name is Matt Binder). My essays are under Teenage Wikipedians and Anon Editors.

On behalf of myself and Jay Carriker and the other wikipediologists, I would appreciate it if you were to join.

Cheers Esperanza! Redwolf24 (talkHow's my driving?) 23:31, 15 October 2005 (UTC)

Template:Welcome5[edit]

Per the TfD discussion on this template, here, I have userfied the above template to User:Exir Kamalabadi/Template:Welcome5, deleted the resultant redirect and update the links on the User talk: pages on which the template appears. -Splashtalk 20:57, 28 October 2005 (UTC)

Wikipediology[edit]

I'd like to ask those fellows who have not indicated whether or not they grant permission for a wikibio on them to please do so soon. I'd also appreciate it everyone could expand or create the wikibios for which permission has been granted. The wikibio project simply won't be useful unless fellows actively participate; so I'd like to issue a challenge that each fellow contribute at least one sentence to two wikibios. I'll be on wikibreak for the next week and when I get back there will be prizes in store for the fellows who have the three highest edit counts on wikibios. Thanks. -JCarriker 22:41, 17 November 2005 (UTC)

News from Esperanza[edit]

Hello, fellow Esperanzians! This is just a friendly reminder that elections for Administrator General and two advisory council positions have just begun. Voting will last until Friday, December 30, so make sure you exercise your right to vote! Also, I'm pleased to announce the creation of the Esperanza mailing list. I urge all members to join; see Wikipedia:Esperanza/Contact for more information. All you need to do is email me and I will activate your account. This will be a great way to relax, stay in touch, and hear important announcements. Thanks! Flcelloguy (A note?)

This message was delivered to all Esperanza members by our acting messenger, Redvers. If you do not wish to receive further messages, please list yourself at WP:ESP/S. Thanks.

Color/Colour[edit]

I've noticed on a few pages spellings like "colour" instead of "color." Now, I don't want to come off as an arrogant American, so I've left these unchanged. But to me it comes as an inconsistency. Should these instances be changed?

Why? the word is "Colour" in English and "Color" in American - leave it to the nationality/choice of the writer!

Wikipediology Elections[edit]

Voting for the positon of Regent Ñ will begin on February 5th at the voting page. All candidates should list themselves there before then. Please take the time to vote, and become more active in the Wikipediology Institute. Thanks - Pureblade | Θ 04:34, 30 January 2006 (UTC)

Abu Ghraib edit[edit]

Hi Vivika/Exir, Thanks for removing the POV tag on the Abu_Ghraib_torture_and_prisoner_abuse article. I wanted to remove the tag myself, but I wasn't actually certain where the POV dispute actually was. There's a rant from one user on the talk page, but as you say, the basis for the POV tag in either section seems unfounded. Thanks again, --Firsfron 02:40, 21 February 2006 (UTC) (this comment was originally mistakenly added to your 'welcome' page).

Esperanza Newsletter, Issue #1[edit]

Reach out is a program aimed at allowing users to bring issues that they have had in Wikipedia to a listening, sympathetic and caring audience:
"No one can know how we feel if we do not say. We cannot expect to get understanding if we do not ask for it. No one will dispute that sometimes life's issues are too much for one person. It is fair to say that sometimes Wikipedia's problems fall under the same heading. This is a place where you can bring the bruises that can sometimes be got on this project for attention."
The Stress alerts program aims at identifying users who are stressed, alerting the community of thier stress and works in tandem with the Stressbusters at trying to identify causes of stress and eliminating them.
Note from the editor
Welcome to this new format of the Esperanza Newsletter, which came about during the last Advisory Council meeting - we hope you like it! The major changes are that each month, right after the Council meeting, this will be sent out and will include two featured programs and a sum up of the meeting. Also, it will be signed by all of the Advisory Council members, not just Celestianpower. Have an Esperanzial end of March, everyone!
  1. Future meetings are to be held monthly, not fortnightly as before.
  2. Bans and Access level changes (apart from autovoice) in the IRC channel are to be reported at the new log.
  3. In the IRC channel, there is going to be only one bot at a time.
  4. The charter requires members to have 150 edits and 2 weeks editing. Why this is the case will be clarified.
  5. A new Code of Conduct will be drafted by JoanneB and proposed to the Esperanza community.
  6. The NPA reform idea is to be dropped officially.
  7. Charter ammendments are to be discussed in future, not voted on.
  8. The Advisory Council is not going to be proposed to be expanded by the Advisory Council themselves, if others want to propose it, they will listen.
Signed...

1500[edit]

You said, on the admin coaching page, that you'll run for adminship once your edit count reaches 1500. But from what I can tell, if you take a try at 1500, people will desperately vote you down saying that the edit count is too low.

Just a little comment. Work hard!

Your Esperanza friend, Deryck C. 04:35, 27 March 2006 (UTC)

Up to you. I just think it's a bit unwise to do so, because I believe you'll receive no comment at all - all comments would say "please make more edits before you come again" and nothing else. You'd only give a bad impression and receive nothing. --Deryck C. 08:27, 31 March 2006 (UTC)

Welcome Back![edit]

You got banned about the same time I started contributing, but I can tell you're very enthusiastic about helping out. By the way, as Deryck says above, 1500 edits is pretty low for an admin. You'll have a much better chance in RfA if you wait until you have about 3000 edits or so. After about 4000, you'll be safe against editcountitis for sure. Let me know if you need any help adjusting to a newer and much bigger Wikipedia. I'd be glad to try to catch you up on any strange new pages, policies, etc. --TantalumTelluride 17:14, 27 March 2006 (UTC)

My Userpage[edit]

I'm working on currently redesigning it, and then there will be more info. At this time, I'd like to just get it up to looking its best, then I'll be willing to trade spaces.

Thank you[edit]

Admin mop.PNG Hello Exir Kamalabadi, how are you? Thanks for your support in my RFA. The final vote count was (88/3/1), so I am now an administrator. I am very humbled by your vote and grateful. Please let me know if at any stage you require assistance, or if you have comments on how I am doing as an administrator. Once again thank you and with kind regards Gryffindor 17:24, 2 April 2006 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Thank you for your vote of confidence in my recent request for bureaucratship. Even though it didn't pass, I greatly appreciate your support and hope I will continue to have your respect. Thank you! Flcelloguy (A note?) 23:04, 2 April 2006 (UTC)

Thanks![edit]

Thank you, I am honoured! And welcome back. As a matter of fact, you were on my list of cool people some time back, for all you did for Esperanza. Sadly, I removed you when you were no longer active :( , but I'll be re-adding you now since your return. Keep up the good work! —This unsigned comment was added by Banes (talkcontribs) 14:26, 4 April 2006.

Thanks from me, too. It's always reassuring to know I have some friends around here. --TantalumTelluride 20:44, 4 April 2006 (UTC)

Same here! We might not have interacted much, but I hope to change that sometime soon, and it's an honor to be your wikifriend. :) Take care, Sango123 (e) 12:37, 5 April 2006 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Thank you for the welcome. :) FilipeS 11:39, 5 April 2006 (UTC)

IW Board of Regents[edit]

Given your energy and intellect would you accept a postion on the Institute of Wikipediaology Board of Regent's as a representaive of Asia. Please respond as soon as possible. Thanks. -JCarriker 02:39, 6 April 2006 (UTC)

Thank you for the warm welcome and the help![edit]

Its nice to be welcomed. All the best. ;-)Turtleflipper 05:04, 7 April 2006 (UTC)

Esperanza Newsletter, Issue #2[edit]

The Barnstar Brigade is a new program aimed at giving more very deserving yet unappreciated users barnstars. It will officially start on 2006-04-09, but signing up is encouraged before this date:
"Here in Wikipedia, there are hundreds of wikipedians whose work and efforts go un-appreciated. One occasionally comes across editors who have thousands of good edits, but because they may not get around as much as others, their contributions and hard work often go un-noticed. Sadly, these editors often leave the project. As Esperanzians, we can help to make people feel appreciated, be it by some kind words or the awarding of a Barnstar. A project the size of Wikipedia has thousands of editors, so there are plenty of people out there who deserve recognition, one just has to find them. The object of this program is not to flood editors with Barnstars, but to seek out people who deserve them, and make them feel appreciated."
The Stress alerts program aims at identifying users who are stressed, alerting the community of thier stress and works in tandem with the Stressbusters at trying to identify causes of stress and eliminating them.
Information
Welcome to the second issue of the new format Esperanza Newsletter - we hope you still like it! This week, it was delivered diligently by our new dogsbody. MiszaBot (run by Misza13): any execution complaints should go to him. Content comments should be directed at the Esperanza talkpage. Thanks!
  1. The next elections: Approval voting as before and, also as before, an previous leadership member can run. Please submit your name for voting in the relevant section of this page. Voting starts on 2006-04-23 and ends on 2006-04-30. There will be three places up for grabs as KnowledgeOfSelf is leaving Wikipedia. Please see the previously linked page for full details.
  2. The Code of Conduct is now ready for extensive discussion! Specific comments should go to the Code of Conduct talk page, discussion of having one at all should be directed to the main Esperanza talk page.
  3. The current process for accepting proposals for new programs has been deemed fine. All Advisory Council members and the Admin Gen are to endevour to be bold when viewing discussion. If they feel that consensus has been reached, they will act accordingly.
A plea from the editor...
The propsed programs page is terribly underused! Please leave any comments, good or bad, on the page, to help us determine the membership's thoughts on the ideas there.
Signed...
