New page patrol – Survey Invitation

Hello Jay-Sebastos! The WMF is currently developing new tools to make new page patrolling much easier. Whether you have patrolled many pages or only a few, we now need to know about your experience. The survey takes only 6 minutes, and the information you provide will not be shared with third parties other than to assist us in analyzing the results of the survey; the WMF will not use the information to identify you.

  • If this invitation also appears on other accounts you may have, please complete the survey once only.
  • If this has been sent to you in error and you have never patrolled new pages, please ignore it.

Please click HERE to take part.
Many thanks in advance for providing this essential feedback.

2012 NCAA Sanctions[edit]

ElKevbo is a bully and isn't a good editor. He's very biased, especially against HBCUs. I've already tried several times to reason with him. He's adamant about continuing his shady editing practices. And we had conflict before that I let go so I've shown I'm able to collaborate but him adding the NCAA sanctions I will not stand for because he's wrong 100%. I left a message on the blocking board, please refer to it. Broadmoor (talk) 18:26, 8 April 2015 (UTC)

Hi Broadmoor, I've replied at the noticeboard. It was wrong of him suddenly to announce you would get blocked and not engage in discussion, but you yourself now need to engage. You need to explain why you feel he is "100% wrong". Is it because the sources aren't reliable, is it because you don't feel it conforms to a neutral point of view in that the way it is presented does not consider the other side of the story? However, talking about ElKevbo himself is something quite different and not permitted on Wikipedia. Moreover, I doubt he is "100% wrong". Wikipedia is a collaborative project and you need to come to a compromise. All the best, --Jay Σεβαστόςdiscuss 01:14, 9 April 2015 (UTC)
I spoke on my experiences and observations of ElKevbo ... I have never resorted to inane name calling or lied on him (if I did please point that out). There's other edits he's done that make no sense to any sensible person bottom line. For example, on the Arlington, Texas page in the demographic section I deleted a line that stated "In 2000, 10% of the foreign born population was Vietnamese" because for one that's not a notable fact, the Vietnamese population was counted in the Asian percentage, and it's outdated (there's been a census since then). He reverted the line I cleaned up. And I already explained the problem in detail and yes he's wrong. In the last conflict with him he said I was 100% wrong (even though I disagreed) and I let it go because it wasn't that serious and didn't jeopardize the integrity of the page much. But this issue does and I'm standing my ground. I appreciate your support but I've done everything you're asking me to do. The issue lies with ElKevbo and his entitlement and him changing the narrative to make it seem like I'm an arbitrary disruptive editor (a rebel without a cause). He wants me to comply just because he says so, he's not following past wiki practices and being unbiased in his editing. Broadmoor (talk) 02:12, 9 April 2015 (UTC)
Hi Broadmoor. I think the admin made a good call protecting the page. I agree that you may well have a point, so you should now take things to the talk page and begin engaging in reasoned discussion. The point is whether adding in the controversy is conforming to a neutral point of view or not. Have a look at WP:WEIGHT for an idea. Please start taking your line of inquiry this way and concentrating on the article and policy (rather than pointing it at the individual and other articles), and I'm sure you can resolve this! Best regards, --Jay Σεβαστόςdiscuss 04:47, 9 April 2015 (UTC)

Scott Walker (politician)[edit]

Why? -- vandalism. Yours, Quis separabit? 15:20, 8 April 2015 (UTC)

Sorry, I'm not sure I understand the question? Thanks for clarifying. I think my initial thoughts were "Oh, somebody removing positive content about a politician with an IP address registered to the US army". I briefly check out the sources and they looked legit. Probably it could do with some improvement, though I don't think it justifies the IP simply to blank. Not familiar with the source NPR, and some assertions are made as fact when they are just quotations of what the politician said. What are your thoughts? All the best, --Jay Σεβαστόςdiscuss 15:33, 8 April 2015 (UTC) :-)
The Walker article is a magnet for vandalism, usually by his enemies. My general opinion is that when an IP editor removes sourced text for no reason, and usually even if there is an ostensible reason/edit summary, I check into it. In this case, and I'm sorry if my terse phrasing was a little disconcerting, I was just pointing out that this is a clear case of vandalism. One cannot always assume good faith. Yours, Quis separabit? 16:01, 8 April 2015 (UTC)
Indeed, one cannot. However, I'm not familiar with the article history in question, which is why I could only assume good faith at the time. All the best, --Jay Σεβαστόςdiscuss 16:04, 8 April 2015 (UTC)

Dispute Resolution[edit]

I am opening a dispute as to the material being added to the page Russ Martin.

Doosan Bears[edit]

Hi Jay-Sebastos,

I noticed you helped update the Doosan Bears page recently. I tried to update the roster info and I seem to have botched something. Do you have any idea how I can clean it up? If you visit the page (, you can see that below the Roster box, there is a lot of ugly looking text info. Also, some of that text (i.e., inactive players and futures league info) did not make it into the Roster box. I would really appreciate your help cleaning that up or if you have suggestions about what I can do. Thanks a lot! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hustledoo (talkcontribs) 04:55, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
