Rolf Harris[edit]

Hi Ian, I think there has been some confusion on the my request for edit on the Rolf Harris page. I received an email asking me if I had a conflict of interest, which I don't. I don't personally know Rolf Harris or any of his Family. However, I do feel the conviction part of the article is biased. The Daily Mail article I presented as a source was written in May 2015 (but some other admin has stated it was May 2014). The Support Rolf Harris, The page and the petition all made international headlines prompting the Mayor of Bassendean to make a public announcement. There are UK and Australian sources which can corroborate this. Here are a number of links

I was wondering if you could review my request again as the conviction and imprisonment section seems biased and makes no mention of these events ever taking place.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Rhyshoffman651 (talkcontribs) 18:26, 1 November 2015 (UTC)

My understanding from the news coverage is that Harris has decided not to appeal. This would require significant new evidence to emerge, rather than the belief of various people that the trial was unfair. For what it's worth, I believe that Harris was unwise to plead not guilty to the charges involving Witness C, who was one of his daughter's friends. These were the central allegations at the trial, and the evidence presented on these charges was clear cut and did not look good for Harris. On some of the other charges against Harris that were brought at the trial, the evidence was rather old and thin.--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 18:42, 1 November 2015 (UTC)

This is a reaction-time experiment for a university paper.[edit]

Congratulations, Ian! Had you considered running for ArbCom this year? Should take only about three minutes.... Martinevans123 (talk) 10:40, 9 November 2015 (UTC)

I'm a humble editor, yes, it's true, sniff. My time is spent trying to sort out article related issues, not feuds between other editors.--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 11:31, 9 November 2015 (UTC)
Don't worry. You'll soon get the hang of it in a jiffy. Martinevans123 (talk) 11:49, 9 November 2015 (UTC)

THAT'S IT![edit]

HOW DARE YOU REMOVE MY NEW OLD SPICE SWAGGER BODY WASH PHOTO! THAT'S IT! I WILL BE CONTACTING AN ADMIN! - Rowanlovescars — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rowanlovescars (talkcontribs) 19:52, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

Sad, sad, sad. I am tempted to ask how old you are, as I suspect that you are neither old enough nor mature enough to be editing Wikipedia. If you can't be bothered with WP:BRD, stay off Wikipedia until you have learned some manners. Do you really think that I am going to be impressed by your childish attitude?--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 04:03, 14 November 2015 (UTC)


I am very sorry for getting angry at you last week. - Rowanlovescars — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:38, 16 November 2015 (UTC)

Thanks. It should be pointed out that File:RZ Body Wash Swagger.JPG is due for deletion as it is missing copyright information. If it is taken from another website it would fail the non-free content guidelines. There has been a tendency to add too many images to the article Old Spice, and a few well chosen images is better than a range of indiscriminately chosen ones. Manual of Style/Images has more details.--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 06:41, 16 November 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

November 2015[edit]

Information icon Please remember to assume good faith when dealing with other editors, which you did not do on Talk:Umpqua Community College shooting. Thank you. -- WV 17:54, 26 November 2015 (UTC)

I do assume good faith, but not everything needs a request for comment, and this could have been put to rest several days ago with the "both" option.--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 17:56, 26 November 2015 (UTC)
The following comment, 'This RfC is little more than a WP:HORSEMEAT debate in an attempt to drum up support for the "mass shooting" option', appears to be entirely bereft of good faith. I considered using the personal attack warning, but because it's a holiday, decided to assume good faith toward you and not see your comments as an intentional personal attack. Unless, of course, that's what it was actually meant to be. -- WV 18:04, 26 November 2015 (UTC)
Blunt, yes. But a bit of a song and dance? Martinevans123 (talk) 19:24, 26 November 2015 (UTC)
It is Thanksgiving weekend in the USA, but the sniping on Wikipedia will continue with business as usual. I've pretty much exhausted what I wanted to say about this.--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 06:06, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
