With all thanks for your efforts, it may be a better plan to let the section sit as it does until some consensus can be reached on the RfC, especially as some of the recent changes are directly addressed by comments there. TimothyJosephWood 13:02, 9 August 2016 (UTC)
Ah, well, you don't seem to be the only person with the idea. I suppose we'll see where it goes. TimothyJosephWood 13:22, 9 August 2016 (UTC)
@Timothyjosephwood:Yes, I am aware that it was a little risky...but it seemed worth trying. (That's what the guy said who jumped from 25,000 feet without a parachute, too, but hey, he made it.) Clean Copytalk 16:33, 9 August 2016 (UTC)
It's always good to have role models. TimothyJosephWood 17:03, 9 August 2016 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:Metamorphoses 2.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Metamorphoses 2.png. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file has agreed to release it under the given license.

You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included.

Pastebinning the solution with 30d expiry (if you so choose)[edit]

I made a series of innocuous, benign changes (judge to kidnapper, inmate to pirate) and deleted sentences which seemed to convey meaning but just said something but said nothing like this statement from a news article which says X could be linked to Y:

It doesn't matter if his reasoning is in one part or several parts. That is just misdirection. The term judge's sentence here is just straight-up clever and funny, lol. I like paradoxes, jokes, or riddles like this. Anyways I hope you'd agree that paragraph #3 in the pastebin clearly makes no damn sense! If the pirate believes he can't be killed on his own execution day, then he will be in for quite a surprise. Yikes! :-) Adwctamia (talk) 12:03, 20 November 2016 (UTC)

Also may I steal your colorful username thing? It's awesome! By the way -- do you know the paradox name where I can find something I read on Wikipedia maybe 5 years ago... It was something like you can ask 3 questions to 3 different people. One person always lies—one person always tells the truth—and one person randomly lies or tells the truth—and you have to identify which person is which using only 3 questions?

  • If you find that riddle/paradox for me; or:
  • if you can tell me the term for a thing which eludes you that you once saw or have seen on the internet but don't know how to describe it, thus you can't google it (this term was on reddit and is absolutely similar to white rabbit, white elephant, pink rabbit, or pink elephant—but is none of those 4 color-object pairings) and the example on reddit most people were describing paintings that looked like cliffs or mountainous landscapes or something and that thread dispensed reddit-gold at a rate that can only be imagined for people helping other people find things which have eluded them for years!

then I will return and present to you an original series of statements designed by me (read here for causal basis to understand why my motivation to write such a thing is reliant on your bringing me the riddle/paradox of which I seek) that seemingly appear to be a riddle but may or may not be! (I'm a good writer -- I'll either make the best veiled riddle/paradox or the least-veiled anti-riddle/anti-paradox which is just assembled to appear to be a riddle/paradox to people who think they know what riddles/paradoxes look like!)

I'll ostensibly claim that I know what the term for the second bulletpoint called but that I'm just "testing you" lol. I will ostensibly deny that I have lost many night's sleep thinking what if I am just a victim to a paradox where I think I saw on reddit an entire thread about people who were searching for something that they couldn't search for lol.

Either way, for some reason, writing and conveying my pensive struggle was cathartic so thank you for allowing me to form my thoughts in such a way on your talk page that genuinely reflected either my sincere motivation to communicate normally under the pretense I'm a wikipedia user named Adwctamia interacting normally on the userpage of Clean_Copy; or, my sneaky motivation to organically form a masterful riddle instead designed for CRGreathouse where only one of two mutually exclusive explanations can conceivably be even plausible (to which swapping hyperlinks in the title wasn't misdirection but 90% of the body of this message is...)

Hint: The original pastebin hyperlink I substituted in the title of this post will be disappearing in nine hours, the new one in 29 days. Is the hint relevant? Maybe... ;-) Adwctamia (talk) 01:47, 21 November 2016 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection policy RfC[edit]

You are receiving this notification because you participated in a past RfC related to the use of extended confirmed protection levels. There is currently a discussion ongoing about two specific use cases of extended confirmed protection. You are invited to participate. ~ Rob13Talk 15:58, 22 December 2016 (UTC)

Eva Frommer[edit]

Hello CC. Thank you for your link with Anthroposophy. I hope you noticed she left a legacy to the Steiner Press who acknowledge her in at least half a dozen publications of RF works in English. She deserves to be much better known and appreciated. Kind regards, --Po Kadzieli (talk) 22:36, 25 December 2016 (UTC)

That's very nice, and well documented. In my judgment, this would be a notable fact in the article on Eva Frommer, but not in those on Anthroposophy or Steiner. Very best wishes -- Clean Copytalk 01:48, 26 December 2016 (UTC)
