Dan Savage and cyberbullying[edit]

You raise a very good issue there, and I wanted to thank you for it. I hope that someone who he respects will point out the contradiction to him in a way that allows him to gracefully back down from this campaign. Like you, I don't agree with Senator Santorum on this issue - to the point of being repulsed by it. But as you said, cyberbullying is cyberbullying.--Jimbo Wales (talk) 21:58, 15 June 2011 (UTC)

Worldcat Identities[edit]

June 2011[edit]

The next edit you make of this nature will get your account blocked. Don't assume bad faith. Don't insult other editors. Don't call people sleazy. Thank you. Jehochman Talk 18:24, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

  • Basic reading comprehension skills clearly not a requirement for Adminship. Many pointed out his error, but more than two years later and he still refuses to acknowledge it, preferring to continue playing God. Still no Emmy for that, either. Flatterworld (talk) 21:17, 23 September 2013 (UTC)

Campaign finance feedback[edit]

Thanks for your feedback on the campaign finance idea! I really appreciate your input. Could you clarify what you meant by filling out the missing CongLinks parameters? Did you mean additional data sources, or adding one of the template options like OpenSecrets to pages that don't have them. Again, thanks so much for taking the time to weigh in.

Hi there--I saw you originally created the Tony Blinken page, and I'm wondering if you wouldn't mind taking a look at some edits that have been proposed.

My full request is on the Blinken discussion page here. Thanks for your consideration! (Bgluckman (talk) 21:06, 7 January 2015 (UTC))

Invite to the African Destubathon[edit]

Hi. You may be interested in participating in the African Destubathon which starts on October 15. Africa currently has over 37,000 stubs and badly needs a quality improvement editathon/contest to flesh out basic stubs. There are proposed substantial prizes to give to editors who do the most geography, wildlife and women articles, and planned smaller prizes for doing to most destubs for each of the 53 African countries, so should be enjoyable! Even if contests aren't your thing we would be grateful if you could consider destubbing a few African articles during the drive to help the cause and help reduce the massive 37,000 + stub count, of which many are rated high importance (think Regions of countries etc). If you're interested in competing or just loosely contributing, whether it's a river in Malawi, a Nigerian footballer, or a South African civil rights activist, please add your name to the Contestants/participants section. Diversity of work from a lot of people will make this that bit more special. For those of you who signed up to the North African contest, that will hopefully be held in the new year. Thanks. --MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 21:11, 6 October 2016 (UTC)
