Which of the challenges did you complete? Can I have your diffs? --SharkfaceT/C 01:42, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

Barnstar of Reversion2.png The RickK Anti-Vandalism Barnstar
For taking the challenge and warning 100 vandals, I, SharkfaceT/C, hereby award you this barnstar. Good job! --SharkfaceT/C 03:54, 1 May 2008 (UTC)


Enjoy! By the way, can I get a list of diffs for your AIV reports? For some reason your use contribs page is lagging me terribly (I have no idea why) and as such I haven't been able to find all 50 of them. Thanks! --SharkfaceT/C 03:54, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

UAA

Just an FYI. Non-English usernames are not a reason for a block. With WP:SUL, we are going to be seeing a lot more of them. Thanks. KnightLago (talk) 17:17, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

Another note, I'm removing a lot of your reports. Please re-read WP:U before reporting additional names; a lot of your provided reasons are rather bogus. EVula // talk // // 17:19, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
Sorry for the pileon, but please use {{uw-username}} to discuss things with users before bringing them to UAA. UAA is only for blatant violations - while I realize you're trying to help, you've been flooding UAA with a lot of names that don't need blocking. Thanks. Hersfold (t/a/c) 17:22, 29 April 2008 (UTC)


Can you please elaborate when i would use this template and can you give me a example with some names that i have reported thank you kindly.

Staffwaterboy Talk 17:24, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

To avoid edit conflicts, I'm working on it. Hersfold (t/a/c) 17:27, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
I removed your reports on:
  • Ganny owner[1]
  • غدوره [2]
  • DeeJayshouldvestayedatMicrosoft[3] (though it could have been blockable for length, I didn't consider it blatant enough to warrant a block)
  • Acewagstaff[4]
  • Freshgang[5]
  • Hillary92[6]
Explanations are provided in the diffs, though I'll be happy to expand upon any you find confusing. EVula // talk // // 17:31, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

I have a question about a few of them Acewagstaff this would not be a promotional for a company/organization,Ganny owner it sounds like this person likes to "own" grandmothers which is not good especially owning someone unless of course this just and expression but i still would find it offensive.Freshgang this username sound like it is related to a gang of some type this is not as bad now that i look at it but still.... This username DeeJayshouldvestayedatMicrosoft sounds like that it is a personal attack on a person.

Thank you for your quick response and help

Staffwaterboy Talk 17:39, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

(smacks EVula for edit conflicting) Acewagstaff could probably be blockable, depending on their edits, but I'd prefer they have a chance to edit so we can confirm that are actually trying to promote. As for Ganny owner, I don't think that's what they were going for and I don't see it offensive at all, just nonsensical as most of our names are. Gang affiliations aren't a reason to block in of themselves - if they turn out to be disruptive, we'll block them for that later on. Hersfold (t/a/c) 17:43, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
[smacks Hersfold right back for edit conflicting] Well, I've never heard "Ganny" be used as a synonym for "grandmother"; I think you might be mis-reading that. The Microsoft one isn't really an attack; if it was "DeeJayisanidiot", yes, it would be. As for "Freshgang", gang has plenty of non-violent connotations, and unless it's a specific reference to a specific gang, it isn't a violation. You might want to read WP:AGF as well; we don't need to assume that these names are negative when we have no evidence of it. EVula // talk // // 17:45, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for the quick response i am still wondering when it would be necessary to use the {uw-username}} tag also i did misread ganny lol but thank you again for the quick response.

Staffwaterboy Talk 17:52, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

Pretty much anything you think may be a violation, but isn't blatant. Acewagstaff might be good, as would the Arabic name and Freshgang; I wouldn't bother with Ganny owner or anything similar, unless you knew of a User:Ganny that they may be trying to impersonate (poorly). The username policy should give some instructions on how to do that. Be aware, though, that {{uw-username}} is not {{uw-ublock}}, which you put in a report earlier. uw-ublock is a block notice, which should only be added by administrators after the user has been blocked. Do not put uw-ublock on a talk page. Hersfold (t/a/c) 18:04, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
Reporting the user named "BrittaniP(:" was particularly inappropriate. Are you just trying to get someone blocked? rspeer / ɹəədsɹ 19:13, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

For a username to be promotional, the name must be part of the promotion; reports to UAA should not relate to conduct except inasmuch as the conduct speaks to a problem with the name. I am, of course, referring to User:Themikeman3. SamBC(talk) 15:24, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

Also, confusing usernames (such as User:Hgkjasduyngpserioads) are not supposed to be blocked without discussion, and as such are not generally suitable for reporting to WP:UAA; please review the policy. I'm afraid that Twinkle is a little behind on changes to the policy. SamBC(talk) 15:24, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

Antique tool

Hey whats up you made a link on the page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antique_tool All I did was add a link to the bottom of the page for my webpage [7] http://www.gardentooletc.com/Antique%20Garden%20Tractors.html.

Diffs

This is a diff. Go to your contribs and click the links for diffs (listed in a row). I want diffs for all your supposed AIV bans (all 20) and AIV reports (all 50). That's only 70 links and shouldn't take too long. --SharkfaceT/C 02:15, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

Of course, take all the time you need. --SharkfaceT/C 02:21, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

Very well. Drop me a line when you have compiled both lists. --SharkfaceT/C 02:28, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

I will go for another RfA in about three month's time and I hope you will be able to support me then as well. If you have any other comments for me or wish to be notified when I go for another RfA, please leave them on my talk page.

Speedy deletion of DJ Enuff

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on DJ Enuff requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words.

If the external website belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must include on the external site the statement "I, (name), am the author of this article, (article name), and I release its content under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.2 and later." You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Wikipedia: WikiProject Swimming

Hi there, Ive recently joined the WP:WikiProject Swimming team. Im committed to getting on top of the project. Since you have listed yourself as a participant i thought i'd let you know what i've done. Ive got a bot thats going through the relevant catagouries that apply to the project and tagging them with our banner. Ive done all the stub class articles and assessed them automaticlly, and im starting on the 3000 other articles that ive identified. So this will mean that we will have all the articles in the scope of the project together and we can start working on them. So if you have any spare time theres going to be thousands of articles that will need assessing. There are around 2000 articles Just in Stub-Class swimming articles, and most of these will need the importance assessed. I think it's important we get all this assessing done, so we can start working on the articles.

Don't fell pressured to start assessing articles, i just thought that since theres going to be so many articles, you should know that theres heaps of work that needs to be done, ill be trying my best once my exams are finished. Remember many hands make light work.

Notability of Dj Haze

Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Dj Haze, by another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Dj Haze seems to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not assert the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Dj Haze, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Feel free to contact the bot operator if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot, bearing in mind that this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion; it does not perform any nominations or deletions itself.

reporting a foreign name to UAA

You should be careful when reporting usernames to UAA, especially under such a dubious rule as being "confusing" (which you will not find as a reason for UAA in the username policy). There is nothing wrong with the name "Kaczkadziwaczka". "Kaczka dziwaczka" is an apparently meaningful phrase in Polish that gets thousands of Google hits. Wikipedia welcomes contributors from all over the world, even if it is difficult for you to understand their name. rspeer / ɹəədsɹ 07:48, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

NYC Meetup: You are invited!

NYFreiheitsstatue2.jpg New York City Meetup


Next: Sunday November 16th, Columbia University area
Last: 6/01/2008
This box: view  talk  edit

In the afternoon, we will hold a session dedicated to meta:Wikimedia New York City activities, finalize and approve bylaws, interact with representatives from the Software Freedom Law Center, and hold salon-style group discussions on Wikipedia and the other Wikimedia projects (see the June meeting's minutes and the September meeting's minutes).

We'll also review our recent Wikis Take Manhattan event, and make preparations for our exciting successor Wikipedia Loves Art! bonanza, being planned with the Brooklyn Museum for February.

In the evening, we'll share dinner and chat at a local restaurant, and (weather permitting) hold a late-night astronomy event at Columbia's telescopes.

Orphaned non-free media (Image:BrandDos.jpg)

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:BrandDos.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 05:12, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

NowCommons: File:080324-F-8454M-112.JPG

File:080324-F-8454M-112.JPG is now available on Wikimedia Commons as Commons:File:C-54 takeoff.jpg. This is a repository of free media that can be used on all Wikimedia wikis. The image will be deleted from Wikipedia, but this doesn't mean it can't be used anymore. You can embed an image uploaded to Commons like you would an image uploaded to Wikipedia, in this case: [[File:C-54 takeoff.jpg]]. Note that this is an automated message to inform you about the move. This bot did not copy the image itself. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 02:14, 29 December 2008 (UTC)
