Sorry about that[edit]

I meant to read the syntax to the "no ping" tag to someone. Winterysteppe (talk) 00:25, 13 April 2016 (UTC)

Ehrman[edit]

I was going to post this to the RSN thread until I realized I was dragging back up the inappropriate, generalized discussion. It's a response to your latest post there, and I thought you might appreciate it, so I'll post it here, instead.

The point is that a negative review of that claims that the resurrection is a historically verifiable fact is a WP:FRINGE source that cannot be taken as reliable if we are trying to write from a neutral point of view when they treat the miracle claims of Christians, and only Christians, as historically verifiable.
That illustrates exactly why the study of history, according to every reputable historian I've ever heard address the issue as well as my own opinion, should be done from a secular point of view. Because doing it from a religious POV virtually requires you to assume miracles took place, and as Ehrman himself (and others!) has pointed out, the job of historians is to determine what probably happened, while miracles are by definition, the least likely explanation. MjolnirPants Tell me all about it. 13:00, 23 April 2016 (UTC)
Of course, history is not a science, but methodological materialism appears to be generally applied across the board. That is why none of Ehrman's critics have teaching positions in secular universities; their methods of doing history simply are not accepted by modern (I wanna say "post-Enlightenment", but I'm not actually sure of the history of the philosophy of history) scholarship.

Blocked[edit]

Stop icon with clock
You have been blocked from editing for a period of 2 weeks for abuse of editing privileges. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions. If you think there are good reasons why you should be unblocked, you may appeal this block by first reading the guide to appealing blocks, then adding the following text to the bottom of your talk page: {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}.

This is related to your creation of the "This guy is blocked for battleground behaviour" at Curley Turkey's talk page. Let me remind you that further battleground behavior will result in blocks significantly longer than the one Calvin999 is currently undergoing. Nyttend (talk) 03:48, 25 April 2016 (UTC)

This blocked user's unblock request has been reviewed by an administrator, who declined the request. Other administrators may also review this block, but should not override the decision without good reason (see the blocking policy). Do not remove this unblock review while you are blocked.

Hijiri88 (block logactive blocksglobal blocksautoblockscontribsdeleted contribsabuse filter logcreation logchange block settingsunblock)


Request reason:

Exactly which PAG I violated is unclear, as the blocking admin variously cited WP:BATTLEGROUND ([55]) and WP:CIVIL ([56]). I said that a user who deserved to be blocked for battleground behaviour months ago had finally been blocked for such behaviour, and expressed satisfaction at this point; three other users, including one admin, agreed, and actively defended the discussion. Per WP:CIVIL#Blocking for incivility, civility blocks are not supposed to be made without warning, but I was blocked suddenly, several days and around a hundred edits after the purported offense. If I had been told to retract my comments or be blocked, I would have happily done the former; Nyttend apparently assumed I would refuse, and redacted my comments for me, blocking me without warning two days after the fact. Also, no explanation was provided for me alone being blocked for saying the same things as three other users. Hijiri 88 (聖やや) 04:55, 25 April 2016 (UTC)

Decline reason:

This cannot be seen as anything but grave dancing. You decided to participate in the exact same type of behaviour that got another blocked and you found so rewarding. Since you don't seem to realize how this was inappropriate I don't think an unblock would make sense. As for warnings, you have been here for 11 years and have received both warnings and blocks for civility and battleground behaviour in the past so I don't think you were unaware of our expectations of civility. HighInBC 02:29, 28 April 2016 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first, then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page until your block has expired.

@User:HighInBC: Please ignore this if you don't want any more to do with this. I've been blocked long enough at this point that I've basically made my peace with not being able to edit for the next few weeks, and do not intend to post another unblock request. This is more of a "request for clarification" of sorts, and if you don't feel inclined to post here again I completely understand.
I've never received a civility block before, and if I received such a warning it must have been a long time ago, as I don't remember it. I received a short block for "battleground" behaviour on an article a few months ago, but my "opponent" was blocked for the same length of time as the then-recent disruption was mutual, and the blocking admin in later comments appeared to express more sympathy with me than with the other blocked user (although I might have read that in). This is not really comparable to expressing satisfaction that someone who caused me trouble a while back but evaded a block has finally been blocked. If at that time my "opponent" had been blocked because of an unrelated dispute, and I posted on someone else's talk page expressing relief that he had finally been blocked, and I had been warned that such behaviour was inappropriate, then the connection would be more apt.
And I am still in the dark as to why neither User:Signedzzz nor User:Crisco 1492 were blocked or warned for engaging in the same Schadenfreude as I? (Curly Turkey did the same, but a message was left on his talk page by Nyttend, so he was technically warned.)
Just for the record, I do appreciate that publically expressing (even justified) Schadenfreude is not conducive to a collaborative atmosphere, and I will do my utmost to avoid such slips once my block expires. The only reason I thought it would be forgiven in this case was because no one who looked at the diffs I included could really think that I wasn't justified in being relieved at recent events. The editor in question made editing Wikipedia miserable for me for quite a while, and ... well, I've said my piece.
I'll be more careful in the future.
Hijiri 88 (やや) 04:42, 28 April 2016 (UTC)
I blocked you, and not the others, because (1) as far as I was aware, they didn't begin anything, and (2) as far as I was aware, they don't have a history of such behavior leading to previous blocks. You're allowed to be relieved/happy that someone has been blocked, but expressing that emotion is grossly inappropriate on-wiki; thank you for your "I will do my utmost" statement. However Due to seeming disagreement among several admins, I've requested community review of the situation; see WP:AN#Admins disagreeing on unblock, and if you want to contribute a short statement, write it here and use {{helpme}} to request that it be copied. Nyttend (talk) 11:58, 30 April 2016 (UTC)
No, both Curly Turkey and Signedzzz have similar block logs to me; the word "battleground" in my most recent block before you blocked me was not really appropriate, as both CurtisNaito and I were blocked for something more resembling "edit-warring; personal attacks and/or disruptive editing on an article talk page". I did not call the blocking admin out for this poor wording at the time, as I did not anticipate having a technical error in my block log directly leading to further sanctions down the road. I appreciate that the admin corps have a lot of shit to put up with, and you in particular have done a lot of good in my past interactions with you, and overall you probably use your admin tools to do a lot more good than harm, which is why I don't particularly want to push this any further than it needs to go.

@Floquenbeam: Re this: I was not involved in the MaranoFan/Calvin999 dispute -- I don't even know who MaranoFan is, except that the name showed up a bunch on Calvin999's talk page, and on ANI when I was also very active there. (In fact, the only mainspace page we have both edited was John F. Kennedy, and our edits were almost ten years apart.) Calvin999 and I had a dispute last August/September over Calvin999 auto-passing a GA review for a friend of his, without seriously analyzing the article's sourcing, and "aggressively" defending this action.[1] I understand that much of Calvin999 and MaranoFan's dispute apparently also involves GAs or FAs or some such, but I may be wrong, as I have no other contact with either editor, and both seem to be focused almost exclusively on western popular music, a topic I have never edited in any volume.

At the risk of the FTN thread getting archived before my block ends...[edit]

I haven't comtributed a lot on FTN for a while, and I don't know how bloodthirsty the archive bots are, but almost ANI threads as old as that Bart Ehrman thread would have been archived by now, but I just wanted to notify User:John Carter re this that, unless the Catholic Church takes the view that the Gospel of Thomas represents a tradition as early as the Gospel of John and that the Gospel of Thomas is not a gnostic text (?), then Elaine Pagels' religious affiliation should have nothing to do with her stance on he Gospel of Thomas and her criticisms of Ehrman and his view of it. I'm not posting this to start a discussion and I don't want John Carter to respond. I am just worried he is going to make an edit to the article based on a misreading of what I wrote, which would in a manner of speaking be my fault, even if I am blocked and unable to revert. Hijiri 88 (やや) 05:52, 29 April 2016 (UTC)

Unblocked[edit]

@Nyttend and HighInBC: both expressed to me that they don't feel particularly strongly about disputing an unblock and I'm confident with your comment here that you're not going to be a problem. You've also addressed Floq's concerns. So, I think I'm on safe ground by unblocking you. Take care.--v/r - TP 02:05, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

Thank you. I will be more careful in the future. Hijiri 88 (やや) 02:52, 1 May 2016 (UTC)
Sorry I'm late to the party, but I stumbled upon your name on AN. Just wanted to give you my 2¢; like Nyttend said, it's fine to grave-dance in private, but you probably shouldn't put it on WP (where anyone can see it), although I don't think he should have quashed you like that. Glad to see that it's resolved now! ミーラー強斗武 (StG88ぬ会話) 19:25, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for May 8[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Chinese influence on Korean culture, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Huayan (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

ArbCom case amendment request[edit]

Pronoun[edit]

I have a quick question for you, feel free not to answer if you don't want to. Are you male or female? I only ask because, for some reason, something feels wrong about seeing another editor refer to you using male pronouns. I've stuck with gender neutral ones until now, but that can be clunky. MjolnirPants Tell me all about it. 15:15, 14 May 2016 (UTC)

BTW, I corrected myself at ANI. Don't take my standoff-ish tone personally, I've just spent too much time at ANI in the past few months to want to get dragged back in. MjolnirPants Tell me all about it. 15:18, 14 May 2016 (UTC)

Male. This actually came up recently here. ;-) And of course I don't mind your keeping a safe distance at ANI. I just wanted someone completely uninvolved in my dispute with John Carter to point out how he couldn't possibly be right in one of his main arguments, so your staying well away from my broader dispute with him actually works.

Pretty sure this is Veritas2016[edit]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Derekitou Asilah1981 (talk) 16:53, 5 June 2016 (UTC)

@Asilah1981: You were a couple of hours late... But Veritas2016 was blocked as a sock, so opening a new SPI to verify that Derekitou is one as well shouldn't be too hard. Honestly, though, I'm not seeing it: Derekitou was active before DifensorFidelis was blocked, and given that the IP admitted to socking there's a possibility that a roaming CU already checked and if they did they would have almost certainly blocked Derekitou if they were the same person. You'd have an uphill battle proving that Veritas2016 is Derekitou and is not DifensorFidelis now that Veritas2016 has been blocked as a DifensorFidelis sock. If we had evidence of possible sleepers a day ago CU wouldn't have been rejected... Hijiri 88 (やや) 01:49, 6 June 2016 (UTC)

Hijiri 88 That's fine. Haven't engaged with that user, have no beef with him/her. Just seemed like similar profile of editing. Good that Veritas was blocked, he was engaging in irrational and destructive editing. Asilah1981 (talk) 08:40, 6 June 2016 (UTC)

Your request for a lede citation on Pennsylvania[edit]

Greetings Hijiri88. I noticed that you added a request for a citation to the lede of Pennsylvania, specifically, the part where it says "Independence Hall, where the United States Declaration of Independence and United States Constitution were drafted, is located in the state's largest city of Philadelphia." Note that the sentence says the Independence Hall is located in Philadelphia, which is basic information easily verifiable without citations. You probably meant to add the template after the first comma, to specify that the unsourced information is the fact that the Declaration of Independence and Constitution were drafted in Philadelphia–that's what I gathered from your hidden note anyway. The information you sought sourced is mostly verifiable in the '18th century' subsection of the History section, specifically its fourth paragraph as of this previous version, though it is perhaps not written as clearly as it should be, and perhaps wasn't there at the time you added the template? I have added the easily researched, clearly stated, and well cited information to the paragraph, and consequently removed your template and the note.
