Please note the following guidelines for my talkpage:
DO watch or pay attention to my talk page. If contacted here, I will reply here to avoid a divided conversation. Likewise, if I start a conversation on your talk page, and you attempt to divide it, I will cross-post my original statement here and reply here.
DO sign your posts with ~~~~ - it makes it far easier to determine who added a comment and when.
DO respect the banner below and do not ask for aid in those topic areas.
DO NOT discuss FlaggedRevs at all. I will delete all such messages on sight. This includes discussion of Reviewer-related topics. (See the banner beneath, too.)
DO NOT ask me to review administrator actions - As of July 11, 2010 I do not have that power.
DO NOT nominate me for adminship - I will automatically reject all such requests. Likewise, DO NOT give me reviewer rights. Drink the beer you yourself brewed.
DO NOT post here if Grawp is attacking a Wikipedia page. Instead, contact an administrator privately.
DO NOT, if you are an administrator, protect this talk page. We have an abuse filter for a reason. Use it.
DO NOT use any slurs whatsoever - I will delete the comment and all further ones from you off of my talk page.
This user will not work in any of the following areas of Wikipedia:
-Any article under any iteration of FlaggedRevisions (Category:Wikipedia pending changes protected pages (level 1))
-Any area directly connected to a real-world ethno-political conflict (e.g. Arab-Israeli conflict, Tibetan independence movement)
-Religion (including atheism-related pages)
-Politics (especially as concerns the United States)
-Topic areas that are or have been at some point under ArbCom sanctions (e.g. Homeopathy, Bogdanov Affair)
Any requests for aid in these areas will be deleted on sight.

Link?[edit]

Jeske, the link to your essay in your answer to question 2 on the RfA is showing as a redlink. Is there a typo or something? I ask because I'd very much like to read the essay, not only regarding the RfA. Regards, Newyorkbrad (talk) 12:21, 24 August 2011 (UTC)

Odds are it is; let me look at my watchlist and I'll fix the link. —Jeremy v^_^v Components:V S M 12:22, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
Fixed; missed a capital letter. —Jeremy v^_^v Components:V S M 12:24, 24 August 2011 (UTC)

So...[edit]

Endless games of protect and unprotect are productive then? I am trying to suggest a way around that. LadyofShalott 02:05, 25 August 2011 (UTC)

Speaking from experience, it's the only practical alternative. He's attempting to keep legitimate IPs or other users from contacting us by forcing us to semiprot and/or spam death threats he's too cowardly to make himself. (FYI, the subpage option doesn't work. I've tried it.) —Jeremy v^_^v Components:V S M 02:07, 25 August 2011 (UTC)
The parenthetical part of your response above was the information I needed. It would have been more helpful (and frankly much less aggravating) if you had said that from the start - even in the edit summary where you removed my first post. LadyofShalott 02:11, 25 August 2011 (UTC)

User talk:BreeBaby2282[edit]

I declined the speedy deletion nomination on User talk:BreeBaby2282. personal attacks, by definition, need to be directed at someone. That was just a random vandalizing message, not a personal attack, and, as such, doesn't justify speedy deletion. Blanking the content and warning the user is sufficient. If the comment was on someone's else's talk page, it might possibly qualify for RevDel, although that would be a discretionary issue. Qwyrxian (talk) 06:40, 25 August 2011 (UTC)

(through forced smile) Thank you, I will keep that in mind. —Jeremy (v^_^v Contributions) 06:41, 25 August 2011 (UTC)

Arbitration report[edit]

Hullo Jéské. The regular writer of the Signpost's Arbitration report stepped down last week and I was wondering, seeing as you are listed as a backup writer, whether you might be able to fill in? It would be much appreciated, as we are rather understaffed at the moment. Regards, Skomorokh 23:31, 16 December 2011 (UTC)

Hi Jéské, can you let me know if you're still willing to serve as a writer for the Arb report? Skomorokh 21:29, 20 December 2011 (UTC)

At present, no. I've been fighting almost-persistent migraines for the past couple months and have not been keeping up with events. —Jeremy v^_^v Components:V S M 21:32, 20 December 2011 (UTC)
Talkpage stalker here. Sympathy with the migraines. Not going to offer a cure - you've probably tried them all by now except the Ancient Egyptian one of applying a live Nile catfish (the electric Nar fish) to your temples. --Elen of the Roads (talk) 22:10, 20 December 2011 (UTC)
I was worried you were going to suggest that other Ancient Egyptian cure, extracting the offending grey matter through the nasal passage. No worries Jéské, hope you get well soon and can enjoy your holidays. Skomorokh 22:12, 20 December 2011 (UTC)
I'm right now using loratadine as a prophylactic; it's working. —Jeremy v^_^v Components:V S M 00:20, 21 December 2011 (UTC)
That might work. And be more pleasant than an electric catfish. I get terrible migraines sometimes, so I do sympathise.Elen of the Roads (talk) 00:33, 21 December 2011 (UTC)

Secure poll[edit]

Hi: '...the 2010 Oversight/Checkuser elections, and it wound up, rather infamously,' Can you give me a link to any discussions surrounding this? I'm curious to know what happened. Thanks. --Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 13:06, 20 December 2011 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Arbitration Committee/CheckUser and Oversight/May 2010 election is the main page, and after the announcement of the poll results at the ArbCom noticeboard, an RfC was opened. The general consensus there was that SecurePoll was the direct cause or a cofactor of Amalthea (and nobody else) receiving CU or OS rights. —Jeremy v^_^v Components:V S M 21:17, 20 December 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for your note. I agree that the proposed username isn't good either, but so long as he wants to pursue a name change then he can work out the best alternative. If he starts editing with the old account we can block it again.   Will Beback  talk  20:34, 16 February 2012 (UTC)

Jennifer Hutt[edit]

In regards to your denial of undeletion of the page for Jennifer Hutt.

You say "you may contact the administrator who closed the discussion". On the page "Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Jennifer Hutt", I do not see the word 'Closed' anywhere. How do I know which administrator did the closing?

There is this "The result was delete. Courcelles 23:47, 16 August 2011 (UTC)". But on that admin's page, this is posted... "Courcelles is taking a short wikibreak and will be back on Wikipedia soon."

What do you recommend as a next step if I wish to pursue this further?

Should I proceed to Deletion Review?

I apologize if this is counter to established Wiki protocol. This is all new to me.

gopackjo Gopackjo (talk) 15:31, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

First, I did not formally deny the undeletion request. However, an admin will do so if they have not already. You have two options from here: Recreate the article in your userspace, paying attention to our sourcing and notability policies, or take it up to WP:Deletion review. —Jeremy v^_^v Bori! 18:22, 24 March 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for the reply and the suggestions. If I was to recreate the article in my userspace, would I be able to access the original article? The archived copy that I found was an older, poor sister to the one that was deleted. gopackjo Gopackjo (talk) 19:40, 24 March 2012 (UTC)
Ask an admin to email you the contents. Do bear in mind that since the article was deleted at AfD, you won't be able to use the exact same contents, except as a base - see WP:CSD#G4. —Jeremy v^_^v Bori! 19:56, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

Autoblock[edit]

I see that at User talk:82.117.223.123 you wrote "The block was issued in February, and an autoblock only lasts 24h. Thus, there is no autoblock to overturn." You may be interested to learn that, if a blocked editor tries to edit, the autoblock is reactivated for another 24 hours. In a case like this one, where an IP that has never edited before, but tries to edit at a time very close to when the blocked user tries to edit and reactivates the autoblock, it is a pretty safe bet that it is the same person trying to evade the block. JamesBWatson (talk) 19:23, 14 April 2012 (UTC)

Hantavirus Risk in Yosemite[edit]

Hi, I noticed you have contributed to the discussion of User:173.63.176.93's block because of reasons that I cannot see. However, I assume it has something to do with his involvement with Yosemite National Park's Talk Page. Recently, I have also tried to add a section acknowledging its the Hantavirus Risk in Yosemite National Park, but my edit was similarly dismissed by User:Jojhutton. If the mention of deaths is the issue, then I believe we can include the information without directly mentioning the deaths.

I have written a new draft of this edit in one of my subpages: User:Airelor/Yosemite_National_Park.

Please take a look and suggest any other edits or make any changes as you see fit before I try to add it to the main Yosemite_National_Park page. I am very new here and while I don't think this is related to the topic of FlaggedRevisions or Troubles or anything that you have notified as areas you will not work in, I deeply apologize if this is the case. If you know of any administrators or Wikipedia Users you can refer this draft (or me) specifically to for advice about this matter, that would be very appreciated too. Thank you. Airelor (talk) 21:39, 16 September 2012 (UTC)

Notice of change[edit]

Hello. You are receiving this message because of a recent change to the administrator policy that alters what you were told at the time of your desysopping. The effect of the change is that if you are inactive for a continuous three year period, you will be unable to request return of the administrative user right. This includes inactive time prior to your desysopping if you were desysopped for inactivity and inactive time prior to the change in policy. Inactivity is defined as the absence of edits or logged actions. Until such time as you have been inactive for three years, you may request return of the tools at the bureaucrats' noticeboard. After you have been inactive for three years, you may seek return of the tools only through WP:RFA. Thank you. MBisanz talk 00:20, 4 December 2012 (UTC)

MBisanz, I couldn't request the tools back even if I had wanted to. —Jeremy v^_^v Bori! 04:18, 4 December 2012 (UTC)
My apologies. I tried to screen the notification list to prevent notifying people who were ineligible. I've very sorry for leaving you the inapplicable note. MBisanz talk 16:20, 4 December 2012 (UTC)

Hitomaro742[edit]

Thank you.—Ryulong (琉竜) 03:38, 6 June 2013 (UTC)

Don't thank me; I just self-reverted and invited him to email oversight. I'm going to err on the side of caution since there appears to be an off-wiki harassment campaign against him. —Jeremy v^_^v Bori! 05:21, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
Yes I've been emailed concerning this as well but it still does not solve things.—Ryulong (琉竜) 06:58, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
He emailed me instead; I've revdel'd the affected edits (and emailed Nihonjoe to fill him in). Given the specific circumstances I don't think oversight is necessary, although Hitomaro's free to contact them if he wishes (and may already have done so). No blame attached either of you guys; it's just an unfortunate situation all round (of which I'm sure you're both already aware). Ryulong, please do carry on with the debate regarding MOS-JA (the macron debate really needs to be resolved sometime this century...) but do take care not to make that connection again; there are potential real-life consequences for the editor involved. Cheers, Yunshui  07:19, 6 June 2013 (UTC)

Watch your edit summaries[edit]

I don't need to look at the edit summary and need to see someone saying "Shut up, McBride" any more than you need an ANI notice. Watch your language, please. μηδείς (talk) 01:39, 13 August 2013 (UTC)

I don't need to read a condescending message from someone who assumes that just because they have no VE edits means they have nothing to contribute to the conversation. Besides, last I checked, "shut up" isn't a profanity. —Jeremy v^_^v Bori! 08:27, 13 August 2013 (UTC)

VOSS Solutions[edit]

Hi Jéské Couriano, Please remove protection from VOSS Solutions, I have a new content for it. I made same request to Nyttend and Phantomsteve. Thank you. —JOHNMOORofMOORLAND (talk) 02:01, 10 September 2013 (UTC)

Did you even read the userboxes at the top of the page? —Jeremy v^_^v Bori! 02:06, 10 September 2013 (UTC)
I came here to ask your input, and only after reading this message did I even notice the userboxes. At least on my browser, they're exceedingly small; I can't read anything in the left box without a lot of effort. Nyttend (talk) 02:11, 10 September 2013 (UTC)
No, you asked me to remove protection from an article, and even absent the userboxes there's a section further up where it's made explicit that I don't have the tools. Given that I have not had the tools for three years I can't review, much less undo, my own admin actions. I'm sorry, but I have little tolerance for those who blindly ask the impossible of someone.
That said, I will not object if someone were to remove the protection provided that the same issues that got the article salted (repeated re-creation as either a copyright violation or a blatant advertisement) do not reoccur. —Jeremy v^_^v Bori! 02:16, 10 September 2013 (UTC)
My comment goes far beyond the admin tools bit — I'm trying to suggest that you expand the boxes if you want anyone to read anything that you've said in them. Look at my talk page; perhaps you could try a big horizontal banner? Nyttend (talk) 02:51, 10 September 2013 (UTC)
My technical (read:coding) skill is virtually nonexistent, Nyttend. I used infoboxen because I knew how to do those easily enough. —Jeremy v^_^v Bori! 03:07, 10 September 2013 (UTC)
You seem to think that I have coding skill. Wrong :-) I just copy/paste code and adapt it. I've taken the code from my page and put your message into it, producing this result; what do you think? Nyttend (talk) 03:22, 10 September 2013 (UTC)
I like it; I've modified it with linebreaks so that it reads cleanly. —Jeremy v^_^v Bori! 03:26, 10 September 2013 (UTC)

help request[edit]

hey how are you ?

you mentioned in a post that a number of my sources where unusable, having read through https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:RS i whittled down my list to the following,

and i wanted to know if any of the sources i have included there do not qualify ?

thanks again

Wikispott (talk) 21:03, 22 February 2014 (UTC)

The ones that don't pass WP:RS in the list above have been struck through. The rest have enough coverage about the guy to be used to help establish his notability. —Jeremy v^_^v Bori! 21:41, 22 February 2014 (UTC)

Hey i would love your advice on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Wikispott/Sugaspott - having collected a rich vein of advice from a number of editors i realise that there is a bit of conflicting information on which sources in that list are usable so i was hoping that you could peek a look and set things straight, it may only take your experienced self a few minutes and yes i probably went overboard (including Social Media - but only on points without controversy) i am aware but i am just so scared when i see some articles with barely no sources yet surviving (i know that X does not mean Y) i am somehow just looking for mentorship, i am a quick learner though, sometimes i am stubborn but all in good faith i promise - feel free to deliver edits or whatever in any direction you see fit. honestly i trust that yours will be a better hand than mine.

Unblock request comments[edit]

Hey, there's no particular need to point out to people blocked by a checkuser that most admins can't deal with the unblock; there are several checkusers who monitor the unblock queue (stack? heap?) and who can deal with such requests -- it's why we're there. It's not a problem that you do this, but it does seem like something of a waste of typing. --jpgordon::==( o ) 22:54, 4 May 2014 (UTC)

Hey Jeske, just wanted to say thank you for trying to undo the IP user's inappropriate edits on my talk page despite their edit warring them back in. I appreciate your trying :) TylerDurden8823 (talk) 02:10, 19 April 2015 (UTC)

Hi Jeske, so, I saw that you said it's possible for an admin to block not just the specific IP but the recurring numbers if I understood that correctly. How is this accomplished? It seems like our friend 5 is ignoring his various (I believe he's up to three) blocks. TylerDurden8823 (talk) 23:55, 20 April 2015 (UTC)
What happens is the admin blocks the IP range that includes all IPs used thus far. There are some limits to this ability: Ranges larger than a /16 (~65.5K addresses) cannot be blocked, and innocent IPs caught in the crossfire cannot be unblocked independent of the rangeblock itself. —Jeremy v^_^v Bori! 02:46, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

Hi Jeske, Request for undeletion for proposed article of Beverly Hills Sports Council was denied. Would like to make revisions and add additional sources. Can you help? Thank you. Nyfan2007 (talk) 22:53, 23 April 2015 (UTC)

I cannot, as I am not an admin (And having seen it twice in the past two weeks, it was denied because you did not reply to the REFUND threads; the draft's already been deleted twice). —Jeremy v^_^v Bori! 05:45, 25 April 2015 (UTC)

VTR full IP range block[edit]

I appreciate your contribution on the talk page for the full VTR IP range block but I am not satisfied with the archaic nature of the admins decision making which is more like 16th century township than modern liberal democracy.

I beleive the block on the full VTR IP range is pure stupidity. Anyone who wants to act with ill intent can anonymise their IP. The admins are castigating 1.2 million internet users for the erros of 1 individual. That is idiocy. I want to be understanding and respectful but the admins are not being understanding or respectful of my rights as a wikipedia community member. I deserve access regardless of the fact that 1 user from 1.2 million users was blamed for something that I still have not been provided evidence for.

An Ip range block should be applied for something incredibly serious especially when the ISP hosts 1.2 million users. The admins are not understanding the unfairness of banning a whole ISP for the actions of 1 individual. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 5.196.29.148 (talk) 02:17, 8 August 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia is not an exercise in any governmental system, let alone democracy or anarchy. And, again, if the abuse is severe enough or sustained enough and whac-a-mole is the only other option, admins will opt for the rangeblock as opposed to just waiting to see what IP he hops to next. That said, larger rangeblocks generally must have the blessing of a Checkuser to make sure collateral damage is minimal. (Checkusers will usually tell an admin seeking to do a rangeblock if there's enough activity on the range other than the vandal that collateral damage would be unacceptable.) I will note that Mmbabies' actions (i.e. IP-hopping and celebrity death threats) have caused much of Houston to be unable to edit Wikipedia anonymously, to give you an idea of the sort of misdeeds that are necessary to make collateral damage irrelevant. I am given to understand that in this case, there was minimal collateral damage caused from blocking this range.
Evidence-wise, we don't overtly call out links for the reason that this (a) makes future vandalism by that vandal harder to detect and (b) only encourages the vandal. Long-term abusers are generally the exception; they're usually motivated by ideology or shock value more than entertainment.
Now, onto your argument that anyone wanting to cause ill intent can use anonymisers. We block all anonymising services, TOR exit nodes, and open/compromised proxy servers upon discovery, and many of our most virulent vandals (such as JarlaxleArtemis) use them almost exclusively because their primary IPs/ranges have been blocked or because they want to hide where they're editing from. —Jeremy v^_^v Bori! 05:13, 8 August 2015 (UTC)

I appreciate you taking the time to write such a thorough feedback. 5.196.29.155 (talk) 04:31, 11 August 2015 (UTC)

You're welcome. Apologies if it doesn't answer your questions. —Jeremy v^_^v Bori! 05:04, 11 August 2015 (UTC)

calling for discussion[edit]

I voiced concerns over what seemed to me to be the punitive nature of comments you used from User:Jéské Couriano/REFUND/Ineligible speedy/G11. Do you still believe policy requires rewriting from scratch all articles that lapsed from WP:CSD#G11? I counted on {{ping}} informing you of that discussion.

User:Amatulic userified the article for me to User:Geo Swan/Daphne Lee Martin. It did require more work than I expected, but not because it was promotional, rather because I didn't think the original references measured up.

I tried contacting the subject at her twitter handle, asking for clarification on some dates, and album names. I haven't received any reply. Sorry, but I think the most likely cause is she still hasn't recovered from the punitive tone of your comment. Geo Swan (talk) 16:53, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

It's actually not all that uncommon for subjects who request their articles for undeletion to not reply on-Wiki. Theyt assume it will be done via email or some other off-wiki means instead (indeed, there was one case the other day where a requestor, editing as an IP, left his email address on the request, and I've in the past removed a phone number from REFUND).
As for the contact via Twitter, it might also be that she is busy with other things. RL takes precedence over online presence, for the most part. Don't assume disillusionment when neglect is equally likely an option. —Jeremy v^_^v Bori! 18:12, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

A modest request[edit]

Dear Wikipedia editor,

Thank you for your comment on my talk page. I am requesting your assistance. One month ago a user with the username Bangabandhu began editing the wikpiedia entry of my wife, melissa chiu, adding entirely negative commentary. I sought to try to balance that commentary which i believed was false and misleading and i was blocked from doing so by this individual and another one with the username Justlettersandnumber. They claimed a conflict of interest and that is true- i am related to the subject. We complained to wikpiedia about their behavior and requested the page be kept under watch and in the long term hope it can be balanced out.

I understand wikipedia has rules about individuals editing pages relating to family or friends and that is fine, i respect that. I would have left the matter at that but one week ago the same individuals, using the same usernames, have started to edit my own personal wikipedia page!! is this purely a coincidence that the same individuals are editing the pages negatively of a husband and wife?

i don't mind people editing the page, but in this case they have added factorial errors. Here is the log record from my personal wikipedia page: benjamin genocchio https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benjamin_Genocchio. You can cross reference it against the page for Melissa Chu,

They have added a statement that my previous employer claims they fired me, with a link, but if you read the link you see in a following paragraph beyond the claim that the article states clearly that i provided an email resignation letter to the reporter that contradicts the claim-- i provided physical, written evidence that contradicted an assertion. This is printed in the story that is being used as a citation to make a claim that is in direct contrast to the printed facts. Look it up.

I am not going to go in and correct this as i will be accused of a conflict of interest again but surely there has to be a level of impartially and fact-checking here? Can an individual or individuals really just take an assertion that is contradicted by facts in an article and put it in a wikipedia entry? And especially individuals that have a track record of antagonistic statements? There must be some check and balance here or wikipedia becomes a site for personal vendettas.

I am not familiar with wikipedia rules but clearly in this instance should not something be done to correct the false and misleading statement?

I would request please that all recent changes by these two unscrupulous wikipedia entries be reviewed and or removed from my personal account and they be blocked from editing my or melissa chiu's account going forward just as i am blocked from editing them. surely wikipedia is not to be used for personal vendettas against an individual or family. i invite you to review the records of both accounts.

Benjamin Genocchio — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bgenocchio (talkcontribs) 02:06, 17 September 2015 (UTC)

First things first: You should have taken it to Talk:Benjamin Genocchio and Talk:Melissa Chiu first. Talk pages exist for a reason, and I wish they were a lot more visible. (Note that due to the way watchlists work, watching a page automatically watchlists the corresponding talk page, and vice-versa, so they would have seen any reply on the talk page.) I am tempted to crosspost this to the talk page and link you to it, if for no other reason than to force a discussion.
Second: There's nothing really actionable in any of those edits you list above as far as I can see. What edits weren't minor copyediting were either addition of material with sources to back them up or removal of material that isn't sourced. Do you have a specific diff on hand?
Third: The sentence in question says, and I quote, "(Gennochio) said he had resigned, but Louise Blouin said that he had been fired." The New York Post essentially corroborates this passage as writ, as it says both that you claimed you had tendered your resignation and later down the page includes the passage, "But in the next breath (Blouin) added, “Benjamin was fired. You want it. You got it.”" This is essentially a he-said-she-said situation here; WP:Neutral point of view bars us from taking one side over the other, and we cannot budge on that, fullstop. —Jeremy v^_^v Bori! 08:30, 17 September 2015 (UTC)

Hello Jéské![edit]

Thanks for letting me know. I updated my page and made a few more edits. If you do delete my article, let me know right away, as I suggest you as well as the other users think about your decision. I'm trying to do all I can to keep the article from being deleted. If SlingshotVenus is deleted for any reason, that's perfectly fine with me. I just reviewed the guidelines on deletion policy and notability.

Warm Regards, ```` — Preceding unsigned comment added by Guitarherofan (talkcontribs) 22:07, 29 September 2015 (UTC)

I am not an administrator and cannot delete pages.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
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.

Stinkymemes[edit]

I understand your comments here detailing your current lack of interest in assuming the admin role. But that being so, it is not appropriate to give definitive advice which give the impression that you have admin authority. Advice, yes, but not advice which pre-empts that of an admin.--Anthony Bradbury"talk" 11:34, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

Better I tell him and he gets an opportunity to change the proposed name before the unblock gets reviewed than it gets rejected for the username and he has to file a new request. An ounce of prevention... —Jeremy v^_^v Bori! 19:46, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

The Kittura thing[edit]

Hi Jeremy, regarding the Kittura indef, this article says a lot to me. The bulk of the non-regulars who have edited that article over the years are blocked, with very few edits coming from other interested editors. If you follow some of those blocked editors' edits you'll notice the intersections, like at Faisal Saif and Main Hoon Part-Time Killer. (NuclearWarfare's "mark blocked" script helps here—just toss it into your common.js file) Also, see the intersection report between Vaalee and Kittura. And why didn't Kittura disclose that he was a publicist? Tsk tsk tsk. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 00:42, 30 November 2015 (UTC)

I was asking if it was a CU-based block because it wasn't marked as such and didn't have an associated SPI. —Jeremy v^_^v Bori! 05:52, 30 November 2015 (UTC)

time wasting[edit]

Why are you wasting your time and others with useless postings such as this? It's not at all helpful to the blocked user, who has no way of making an unblock request targeted specifically toward checkusers; admins who can act upon unblock requests generally know full well that they shouldn't unblock in the case of checkuser blocks; this is not a "checkuser block" anyway, because by definition a checkuser block says "this is a checkuser block"; there are not rules restricting regular admins from unblocking otherwise; and even if I'm the only checkuser patrolling CAT:RFU, which I don't think is the case, your comments of this sort neither accelerate nor delay the process of reviewing these requests. What is the user supposed to do in response? --jpgordon::==( o ) 18:18, 19 December 2015 (UTC)

Your sig[edit]

fyi: Because of the linking in your sig, use of the font tag outside the link won't work and will be just a blue link:

If instead you use the font tag inside the link, then it will produce the color you want on all pages:

Time wasting[edit]

I see that you have chosen to ignore the question posed a few comments above this one. I recognize that at one time you were an admin, and I am reasonably certain that you could be so again if you chose to apply. As you have said, categorically, that you do not wish to be an admin at this time or in the forseeable future, could I please ask you to stop making functionless posts in response to block messages received by other editors. These messages help them not at all, nor are they useful to reviewing admins.--Anthony Bradbury"talk" 19:46, 9 March 2016 (UTC)

WP:PROD reason[edit]

Also, if anyone actually gave a damn about these articles they'd've found non-IMDb sources by now. Those pages have been tagged for a fair while. The people who're watching them either need to fish up sources or cut their bait. —Jeremy v^_^v Bori! 21:22, 20 March 2016 (UTC)
Sorry I missed that. You do need to provide a valid reason for deletion. Unsourced is not a valid reason. Editors not giving a damn is also not a valid reason. ~Kvng (talk) 21:30, 20 March 2016 (UTC)
A biography with sourcing the project generally agrees is not up to snuff tagged for the better part of a year is not a valid reason for deletion? We'll see about that. Rescinding PRODs for AfD on most of them. —Jeremy v^_^v Bori! 21:34, 20 March 2016 (UTC)
I am not actually disagreeing with you on this article. I was just requesting that you provide a valid reason when you propose deletion and consider alternatives to deletion WP:BEFORE proposing deletion.

The Church of Christ with the Elijah Message[edit]

What do you expect to do with the answer to [1] this question, should the editor make one? If you think that an admin would need to know, why can you not let an admin ask the question?--Anthony Bradbury"talk" 18:57, 9 April 2016 (UTC)

Because an admin is more apt to read that as an admission of paid editing right off the bat. Having him clarify makes it easier on himself and his chances to be unblocked. —Jeremy v^_^v Bori! 05:56, 10 April 2016 (UTC)
It is not for you to decide what an admin should think or do. Please do your recreational editing somewhere else. --Anthony Bradbury"talk" 09:33, 10 April 2016 (UTC)

Why do you want to know the answer to [2] this question? I have said before, if you want to be re-instated as an admin, apply. If you do not, please leave this type of edit to those of us who are admins. Your interventions serve no purpose.--Anthony Bradbury"talk" 09:42, 10 April 2016 (UTC)

You are pissing people off totally unnecessarily, with no advantage whatsoever to the users whatsoever. It's at best a waste of your time, and it's bordering on disruptive, if by "disruptive" one means "wasting the time of other volunteers for no reason whatsoever". --jpgordon::==( o ) 16:33, 10 April 2016 (UTC)
Anthony, you mention you've told me this before, but this is the first time I've ever heard from you. I'm not looking for reinstatement as an admin, as I am not and never was one. I'm not sure which page the block is referencing, nor what edits have apparently offended people. I read through Wikipedia's "examples of disruptive editing," and I haven't done anything on that list. I always make sure what I post is as unbiased as possible, has sources cited when possible, and is constructive to other editors. And I'm not sure how anything I've done would amount to "block evasion." Thanks for the insight.DylanJC88 (talk) 18:25, 10 April 2016 (UTC)
