WikiProject Germany Invitation[edit]

Flag of Germany.svg

Hello, JD de! I'd like to call your attention to the WikiProject Germany and the German-speaking Wikipedians' notice board. I hope their links, sub-projects and discussions are interesting and even helpful to you. If not, I hope that new ones will be.

renaming account[edit]

I'll see what I can do. I'm kind of attached to the name. However, I don't see a reason not to change the username. Let me do some thinking on it. I'll get back to you sometime soon. If it's a problem, let me know, I'll check a little more frequently than in the past. JD (talk) 05:41, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

thanks for reply. i'm waiting eagerly for your decision. ;-)
i wish you happy holidays, --JD de {æ} 19:24, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

Edit war[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Annemarie Eilfeld. Note that the three-revert rule prohibits making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24 hour period. Additionally, users who perform a large number of reversions in content disputes may be blocked for edit warring, even if they do not technically violate the three-revert rule. If you continue, you may be blocked from editing. Please do not repeatedly revert edits, but use the talk page to work towards wording and content that gains a consensus among editors. If necessary, pursue dispute resolution. McJeff (talk) 06:09, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

i am sure you could take some time to check all the contributions in the article, then realise that both IP and user:buchweizen are contributers straight from eilfeld's official fan bulletin board (see and that i personally am only having a look here on this lemma because i already had to intervene at de.wikipedia before as long-time admin there.
moreover, a look at this edit should ultimatively make clear that i am not vandalising there or want to carry any edit-war out. i suggested semi-protection two days ago, too. --JD {æ} 12:53, 15 July 2009 (UTC)
I read the entire situation. It appears to be a content dispute to me. You were also blanket reverting, and exceeded 3RR at least once.
If, as you claim, these editors have come here from the German Wikipedia via an Annemarie Eilfeld fansite, then it would be best for you to provide some sort of proof for these claims. Otherwise, it's an unsubstantiated personal attack.
And as an administrator, you should know better than engaging in a revert war. The proper thing to do would have been to post to WP:AIN, or WP:BLPN as I did. McJeff (talk) 21:41, 15 July 2009 (UTC)
  • "It appears to be a content dispute to me." - so it has to be discussed (again! - see my other statements; see de.wp) if external links like, for example this one (german tabloid, completely out of the question), that (another online store of her music group) or an interview that is already linked as a reference are capable from the perspective of WP:EL?! sorry, i got some other things to do in life, too.
  • "exceeded 3RR at least once" - different other users; all with the same goal (see next point); same problem before on de.wp until semi-protection; no discussion when their stuff is in the article already. and i know reverting is not fun.
  • "If ... these editors have come here ... via an Annemarie Eilfeld fansite, then it would be best for you to provide some sort of proof for these claims. Otherwise ..." - i already linked to the specific thread in the bulletin board in my statement before. one can follow every single step of their attempt to get the article in a way they want it to look like.
  • i contacted en.admin DerHexer the day before yesterday, i commented on your notice, i contacted other admins today and - believe it or not - i am an admin @de.wp and not that much active on en.wp; i have never before contacted any official site here concerning vandalism and had to do pretty some search work before being able to do so. --JD {æ} 22:08, 15 July 2009 (UTC)
JD, you should know that the only valid reason to break the 3 revert rule on en.Wikipedia is to combat actual vandalism. It may be tough to prove that fancruft is vandalism. (talk→ BWilkins ←track) 17:01, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

request to use your namespace for some redirects,[edit]


I'm a law student in New York, and as you may be aware, "JD" among lawyers is the acronym for "juris doctorate," which is the degree we get -- hence my user name, JD Caselaw (talk).

I'm using my namespace as a study guide for students in my law school classes -- For example, for our Constitutional Law study group, I currently have a redirect at User:JD Caselaw/Conlaw

But what I'd like is a redirect at User:JD/Conlaw, since it's less effort :)

Would it be appropriate for me to do that, here and in a few related instances? It would help me and also a lot of my classmates.

Thanks. JD Caselaw (talk) 19:25, 19 July 2009 (UTC)

hi, there.
i've never heard of this acronym before, thanks for bringing that to my attention. ;-)
i'm cool with some redirects in my user namespace as long as there aren't countless of them. please inform me here at my talk page about these redirects so i can keep an overview in this matter.
regards, --JD {æ} 12:17, 20 July 2009 (UTC)
