ArbCom Elections 2016: Voting now open![edit]

Scale of justice 2.svg Hello, Jpgordon. Voting in the 2016 Arbitration Committee elections is open from Monday, 00:00, 21 November through Sunday, 23:59, 4 December to all unblocked users who have registered an account before Wednesday, 00:00, 28 October 2016 and have made at least 150 mainspace edits before Sunday, 00:00, 1 November 2016.

The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to impose binding solutions to disputes between editors, primarily for serious conduct disputes the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the authority 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 in the 2016 election, please review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Nadir Ali[edit]

You had unblocked @NadirAli: on December 2016 as last chance. He has been blocked for disruptive editing, creating sockpuppets, IP socking, edit warring, bad image uploads, he has been through indefinite block by @Ohnoitsjamie:. He is blocked again for edit-warring to push original research. --Marvellous Spider-Man 12:00, 9 June 2017 (UTC)

My "last chance" had to do with image uploads. I'm not going to revisit his behavior from almost a decade ago. It is quite the impressive block log, certainly. --jpgordon๐„ข๐„† ๐„๐„‡ 14:10, 9 June 2017 (UTC)
Per what you said above you may not be joining the discussion, but the issue is now at WP:AE#NadirAli. Notifying you because you are the last unblocker. Admins may consider restoring the indef block. Thanks, EdJohnston (talk) 16:22, 30 June 2017 (UTC)

Please protect German version of Ismael Ogando[edit]

The Page is target of Vandalism, could you help protect the page i n the German Wiki? The Spanish and English are ok. โ€” Preceding unsigned comment added by Cocainaenvenenada (talk โ€ข contribs) 09:39, 24 June 2017 (UTC)

Sorry, user:Cocainaenvenenada, Jpgordon is sysop at en-wiki, not at de-wiki. You are edit-warring against a number of other users so the article was protected. The discussion if you better should be blocked, also is still on, your comments are welcome over there: de:Wikipedia:Vandalismusmeldung#Benutzer:Cocainaenvenenada
Please also contribute to the deletion request for your article at de-wiki. There are different rules on what can have an article in the different language versions of Wikipedia. --Pentachlorphenol (talk) 10:07, 24 June 2017 (UTC)
btw, Cocainaenvenenada, you really should refrain from placing uw-vblock-tags to talk pages of other users. First, this one is restricted to sysops, second, this template does not work at de-wiki, anyway. --Pentachlorphenol (talk)

Thank you, the author is working the issue โ€” Preceding unsigned comment added by Cocainaenvenenada (talk โ€ข contribs) 10:21, 24 June 2017 (UTC)


Well, well. That's a slightly different unblock request reason. It is clear enough that she was and is acting in good faith; it is just that what she wants to do in good faith is contrary to the purposes of Wikipedia. Robert McClenon (talk) 02:24, 11 July 2017 (UTC)

Should I have been clearer and kinder in my explanation? It does look a bit terse. --jpgordon๐„ข๐„† ๐„๐„‡ 17:49, 11 July 2017 (UTC)

Unblock request on old block by you[edit]

FreakyLocz14, who you indeffed in 2011 for BLP vio as an IP, is requesting unblock through WP:UTRS. I'm handling the ticket, and I've requested a Checkuser to determine if there is any recent repeat of the damaging IP editing. Would you have any issues with me handling the request on my own judgement? Given the age of the block and the routine nature I doubt you would, but as a courtesy I figure you ought to be consulted. Regards, The WordsmithTalk to me 14:35, 12 July 2017 (UTC)

I certainly don't remember what IP or what BLP issues this was all about, and of course I didn't reveal it anywhere. I just ran a CheckUser, and it came up blank. I'd recommend asking this person if they can tell you what they got blocked for in the first place. Simply saying "It has been years since I was originally blocked and have moved beyond the behaviour that led to the block." doesn't indicate any understanding of why they were blocked. But yes, go ahead and handle it yourself. --jpgordon๐„ข๐„† ๐„๐„‡ 14:42, 12 July 2017 (UTC)
Thanks, I'll follow up on it. Since you ran the CU and you seem to have UTRS access, can you please release the ticket back to me from the CU queue? Thanks. The WordsmithTalk to me 15:28, 12 July 2017 (UTC)
Done. --jpgordon๐„ข๐„† ๐„๐„‡ 04:45, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
