My dear friend[edit]

I did not think it was necessary to wheel war over AN/I discussion closure; for this case, it was fine; but when are you going to run for RfA? Hundreds of us have been asking you and perhaps, GreenMeansGo. Alex Shih (talk) 20:26, 17 January 2018 (UTC)

@Alex Shih: Look: I really must apologise about the ANI close. I assure you—no excuse that it is—that I didn't realise that You had already closed it, that SoV had re-opened it, and then I turned up in size thirteens :) I saw the thread, went to the RfC, saw you'd closed that, and went back to the ANI thread... and closed it :o I'm afraid you and "hundreds" of others are now in the company of someone who didn't check the page history. A page one error! -and one which I will be rightfully condemned for. Sorry about that. Hope SarekoV didn't think I was stepping on their toes too. wel, clearly i did; but not deliberately. Nice message though: thanks! >SerialNumber54129...speculates 20:34, 17 January 2018 (UTC)
I see what you're doing... a joint RfA so we can fail together an console one another. GMGtalk 21:32, 17 January 2018 (UTC)
Hey, if you are all bound and determined to fall on your sword like that, this'll cut the sword budget considerably.... Anmccaff (talk) 21:41, 17 January 2018 (UTC)
Yes, but then they're stuck together and would have to abide by the two-man rule for any administrative actions. Primefac (talk) 15:44, 18 January 2018 (UTC)

RfA[edit]

I know a lot about RfA, prbably more than most because I pioneered the biggest ever investigation into it and I've voted on literally 100s of them. One of the problems of being an admin, is that people jump on us for anything they can and just love taking our comments out of context. You said 'extremely unfair'...

Drive-by ANI[edit]

Re JB: Oppose as effectively a content dispute are you insane? Did you not read up on the history??? Very weak judgement. Ceoil (talk) 18:28, 23 February 2019 (UTC)

@Ceoil: Look: we don't need to have a row. Apologies for my edit-summary; no you're not. But—if you don't mind me giving an alternate example—if I came to your talk and said something like "I think you should lay off the drink, your argument's so crap", or somesuch (!!!) you'd (rightly) drag me to ANI for casting aspersions—or, possibly?—revert as trolling :) but we've always got on well, we've collaborated well, and—as I have from Johnbod, as I said—you're one of a Gang of Four Eight or so who has taught me everything I have learned about writing decent content. I don't want that to change; especially over what is frankly political. But, Ceoil, from my point of view, I temporarily lose it when people question my sanity—know what I mean? Hence the edit summary. Take care. ——SerialNumber54129 18:53, 23 February 2019 (UTC)
Not happy, but message and intended wounding received. I am disappointed and maybe we avoid each other from here, dandy and fine by me; some how I'll carry on I suppose. Ceoil (talk) 19:25, 23 February 2019 (UTC)

WELL Ceoil, for someone who thought it best that maybe we avoid each other from here, it's great to have you back less than three hours later. If you didn't understand that my line about your argument was a hypothetical, a mirror-reflection of your "are you insane" attack—which was not "intended wounding", I suppose?—then there's very little to be done.

  • Could be worse I suppose. One of my closest friends once told me that "all I see when I look at you is a sphere".

Don't burn bridges over words. Mr rnddude (talk) 09:04, 24 February 2019 (UTC)
What second sentence is that, Mr rnddude? ——SerialNumber54129 12:57, 24 February 2019 (UTC)
The second sentence of my comment: "One of my closest friends", to be specific. The point is that we're still friends despite having had some sour words for each other in the heat of the moment. That the complete fallout here needn't have happened. Mr rnddude (talk) 13:36, 24 February 2019 (UTC)
Mmmm. It's an almost inevitable byproduct of extending an ANI discussion to a user page, I suspect. It's only happened occasionally before, but generally results in some class of meltdown, with or without blocks. I think it's because comments that would only read as veiled attacks in the noticeboard vacuum where everyone's as bad each other are harshly illuminated on a quiet talk page. Shame though. ——SerialNumber54129 13:47, 24 February 2019 (UTC)
It's an almost inevitable byproduct of extending an ANI discussion to a user page - That's very true. I can think of only two instances where an AN/I discussion spilling over to my talk page didn't result in more problems. The last time a spillover happened, it was a particularly unpleasant moment. I do hope that I don't have a repeat of that. It is a shame though, I agree. Mr rnddude (talk) 14:04, 24 February 2019 (UTC)

Greenock Stowaways[edit]

Hello:

The copy edit you requested from the Guild of Copy Editors of the article Greenock stowaways has been completed.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

A couple of things I noticed. In the Ill-treatment section it reads:

Kerr, hearing of this, declared that the boys would henceforth get "the ground of their stomachs before they get any more", (Sfn|Donald|1928|p=54) but the footnote says: Refn|”Specifically, Kerr swore, according to Roughead, that the first mate would "give the ground of their stomachs before they got any more".sfn|Roughead|2014|p=15}}|group=note

Of the two mentions – the one in the text cites Donald, one as a footnote cites Roughead. One says "get" one says "give". I'm not even sure what this quote means. The citations should be checked and corrected if necessary.

Also:

It's unclear how many boys had shoes. "the stowaways had no shoes between them" or "since some of the boys had no shoes" – is that "no" or "some" – needs clarifying

In the Arrivals section the quote box mentions some had, some didn’t have shoes.

Arrivals:

Mentions five stowaways were put off the ship, where are the other two?

Same section, then we have "Of the six boys, Reilly and Bryson were keen to leave…" Seven boarded in Greenock. This just needs clarification.

Best of luck with the GA review.

Glad you got the article. What are you working on? Things is good here, just busy; took a vacation last week and still managed to work 40 hours—strangely relaxing, though, working while staring at a beach. How's things going with you? --Usernameunique (talk) 15:05, 12 March 2019 (UTC)

Inappropriate AFD close[edit]

I am asking you to revert your non-admin close on Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Veracity of statements by Donald Trump. You closed the discussion less than 6 hours after it opened. Furthermore, you violated the rules of WP:NACD which state "Do not close discussions in which you have offered an opinion, or for a page in which you have a vested interest"--Rusf10 (talk) 16:18, 12 March 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for your message, Rusf10, which I have very carefully considered; Cf. WP:IAR and WP:NOTBURO. Although I suppose speedy keep #3 could have been worth a punt, since strictly your grounds for nominating were erroneous, albeit not egregiously so: per policy, to qualify as an attack page, it must also be unsourced or poorly sourced.
Regarding your other points, the discussion had, in fact, being open over six hours; I had not offered an opinion on that discussion prior to closing; this tells us I have only ever edited that article five times, adding eight bytes on average with each one, and so clearly do not have a vested interest. Although I suspect you know this already.
Word of advice, you'll need a much better eye for detail when you go to deletion review. Cheers, ——SerialNumber54129 16:51, 12 March 2019 (UTC)
Think I didn't see this? [6] You also need to reread the definition of attack page. "An attack page is a page, in any namespace, that exists primarily to disparage or threaten its subject; or biographical material that is entirely negative in tone and unsourced or poorly sourced. " Regardless, this is going to DRV.--Rusf10 (talk) 16:59, 12 March 2019 (UTC)
You seem to be rather heavily invested in this, Rusf10? Well, enjoy DRV, and be mindful of WP:ARBAP2 of course. ——SerialNumber54129 17:06, 12 March 2019 (UTC)
(talk page watcher) SN, you're actually incorrect here; an attack page is a page which exists primarily to disparage or threaten its subject; or biographical material that is entirely negative in tone and unsourced or poorly sourced (my emphasis). Thus, "list of bad things people have said about insert name" could still qualify as an attack page, even if it were meticulously sourced. Rusf10, in this particular case, I wouldn't consider Veracity of statements by Donald Trump as an attack page (although that's a dreadful title), as even if it's proven that every word he's ever said is true, enough reliable sources have alleged that he's a habitual liar that the allegation is a notable topic in its own right. The reason we don't have similar articles on other politicians is that although obviously other politicians have been accused of lying, in general the alleged lies have been in relation to particular incidents and the allegation is consequently covered in the article on that incident (e.g. Iraq dossier); what's unique here is that it's the allegation that Trump is a liar that's notable, rather than an allegation that he lied about a particular incident. ‑ Iridescent 17:08, 12 March 2019 (UTC)
Nice one Iridescent, I was about to ping you for a second opinion: I admit I was focussing on the biographical aspect, as indeed I thought Rusf01 was. Still, I guess it's gone elsewhere by now... ——SerialNumber54129 17:15, 12 March 2019 (UTC).
On a lighter note, it's funny to see both policy and pillar broken in one single swift edit... ——SerialNumber54129 12:45, 14 March 2019 (UTC)

Need Help With Page You Requested For Speedy Deletion[edit]

Hello, I see you had requested a page I made for speedy deletion, however, I had created this page in the first place again because it was originally deleted falsely despite discussion members giving solid reasons why the page is valid. To emphasize this, I ensured to site many reliable sources including Billboard.com. Could you please read my response that I contested your speedy deletion, as this artist is someone whose performances I have bought tickets for and attended and he has an international presence with 100,000s of followers of his work. BobKelley (talk) 13:22, 17 March 2019 (UTC)

The page has been deleted, and this, unfortunately, is not unexpected. ——SerialNumber54129 13:55, 17 March 2019 (UTC)

Seriously[edit]

First, WP:DTR. Second, warning any editor that they must leave a comment for unexplained edits is highly appropriate. I'm sorry you don't feel that communicating with and educating editors is part of the mandate of all editors. Take it to an appropriate forum. Walter Görlitz (talk) 22:16, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

Information[edit]

I have noticed that you probably still have List of association football players considered the greatest of all time on your watch list (BTW I belive this article will be rerestarted in long future but in more natural way just like other this type articles on Wikipedia). I very thank you for giving next warning for User Lsw10 due his edit wars. But I also have to give information/warn that this user need be more controled (technically watched) in long future from time to time. I just want to other admins will be aware how his seldon edits generally look. Based on his edits in all projects I belive he potentially can again will make wrong edits during soccer's proment events like Cop America or World Cup specifficlly among articles reelated to records/opinions etc.. [8] - Here is his edit where he used as source Youtube video which currently get 23 views and it would shows that he even potentially can has something common with community which promote individual person on the Internet. It is odd and not right when someone generally seldon edits Wikipedia from time to time, someone do bias edits which are not later fastly corrected and this user is not watched. See how his edits look from time to time (I only give you an example, example when he uses sources/metothology about officall/unofficall doubts in biographies only if something is agree with his personal favouritism but you can find way much more his scanner). here he edits a current good article (article about Pele is GA) and give information about Guiness World Record which is not important (for sure not essential for DA) speciffically due to fact that all Wikipedia's articles about soccer statistics are focussed on RSSSF and this one source is also used in relevant article, the source shows more notable considerings about friendly matches and offical matches, what is later also essential to organisations like FIFA etc.. Meanwhile in this edit he give not true information that Chitalu according to FIFA scored more goals in calendar year than Muller and Messi. I will not giving here more examples from scanner where he denigrate other players or how discuss with other users and I will not ping other users who had edit war with him but again: I only want to admins be aware that this user make from time to time edits on Wikipedia which are problematic and it is odd that nobody has his userpage on watchlist. Again thanks for warning for this user because of I am not first user who reported him. Cheers! Dawid2009 (talk) 13:38, 24 March 2019 (UTC)
