Vandalism

You're welcome. Woogee (talk) 19:41, 17 February 2010 (UTC)

My review of your work

Hello Kayau,

At WP:Editor Review, you asked for a review of the work you did until now, mostly because you just received the Rollback privilege. I'm pleased to give you my input.

About your article on Land use conflict, I think it is a very good start. By the nature of Wikipedia, an article is never finished, but yours is already a sufficient basis for any one searching about the subject. Your article is linked to appropriate other article and contains good information. Congratulation.

As for anti-vandalism and rollback, you are doing good already. When reviewing your work, I agreed with all the revert you did. You also gave users the proper warning after each of your recovery, which is an essential part of anti-vandalism action. Most time, users receive an L1 warning, assuming good faith as required. One started straight at L2, but I agree with you that the kind of vandalism he did left no room for assuming any good faith at all : he completly deserved that L2. Another important thing that you are doing is to escalate your warning depending of what the user already received by other vandal fighter.

Still, some of your edits would have room for improvement. The most obivous is this one [[1]].

You cleaned vandalism on the page, but did not warned the user. It's not critical, but warnings being an important part of anti-vandalism, try to warn all users when you are doing cleaning. What is more problematic is the vandalism you left on the page.

The line just on top of the vandalism you cleaned is itself pretty obvious vandalism. When you do your review, do not limit yourself to the very last change done to the article. Once vandalism is hidden under good faith edits and / or anti-vandalism recovery, it is much more difficult to find and fix. For finding such cases, you can compare your edit with the article as it was 3 to 5 unreverted edits ago. Finding 3 unreverted edits may require to compare your edit with one 20 edits older depending of the amount of vandalism done in the past. After this second check, you can go even deeper and search for what looks like 3 - 5 good faith edits. People modifiying article in good faith have more chance to leave a clean article behind them, so that gives you a stronger point of comparison for identifying what is vandalism and what is not.

This second edit [[2]] of yours is another one when more vandalism remained in the article you approved as good.

Finally, here is a third case. [[3]]. (see in the Plot section).

I did not fixed any of your edit; you will have to double-check them yourself. Once done, just keep in mind that fixing hidden vandalism is the most difficult part, so ensure that you do not left some behind you.

Congratulation for your contribution to Wikipedia and keep up the good work,

Your response to my query.

Citation of Personal Experience

Let's say you're starting a page about someone whose name appears in a number of Wikipedia articles but who doesn't have his own page yet (name appears in red}. Also, let's say this person is someone you grew up with, is related to you, and about whom you have knowledge from personal experience as a child, and later, as an adult. Does this information need to be cited, and if so, how would one go about doing it (preferably without revealing one's name)? Should one simply use PN for "personal knowledge," as we're not really talking about "personal knowledge management" or similar articles in Wikipedia FAQs? I should also mention that though I know the person in question I intend to keep the article neutral, simply sticking to facts.

14:31, 22 March 2010 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Taoskier (talk • contribs)

No WAY. Don't even THINK about it. You have a conflict of interest, and we do not publish original research, and just because there are redlinks does NOT mean it is notable. Unless you can find other sources, maintain a neutral point of view and prove that he is notable, youe aricle will be speedily deleted in no time. ` Kayau Voting IS evil

My comment:

First of all, I have no idea what "Kayau Voting is evil" refers to. But to the main point. On your page you ask everyone leaving you a message to be nice and polite. Why don't you follow your own advice? The tone of your response is belligerent: shouting NO WAY, and Don't even THINK about it. Why don't you follow your own guidelines for comments? Your response to my query (and I'm new to Wikipedia; I'm not familiar with all the guidelines) is anything but polite.

on the triviality of edits

I see you switched me from "connected contributor" to "Notable Wikipedian" and back again on Talk:Nat Gertler.

WP:AUTO#IFEXIST states "In clear-cut cases, it is permissible to edit pages connected to yourself. So, you can revert vandalism; but of course it has to be simple, obvious vandalism and not a content dispute." If you look at the edit that seems to have triggered your second switch, you'll see it's a reversion of obvious vandalism from a vandalism-only account, the kind of revert that I would normally do on any page I saw it on and would frequently be marked as a "minor edit". I didn't add substance nor delete material that could be considered true substance, so I at least would see that as trivial. I would appreciate your considering it in that light, and restoring the Notable Wikipedian tag. --Nat Gertler (talk) 14:40, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

You are now a Reviewer

Redaktor Wikipedia 600px.png

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, will be commencing a a two-month trial at approximately 23:00, 2010 June 15 (UTC).

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under flagged protection. Flagged protection is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 17:44, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

The word you were searching for

"Perhaps it could go from the old colour, and gradually to the red one? (I'm a non-native speaker so I don't know the name for that.)"

The word you are looking for is gradient. It would be a gradient from the old colour to the new one. Cheers! ɳorɑfʈ Talk! 07:33, 16 June 2010 (UTC)

Hello!

I am relatively new to Wikipedia (I've never made a brand new page before) and I would like to know what more I can do to get the boxes removed from the top of the page I created, Castlevania: Harmony of Despair. I'm not in a hurry to get them off just to look good, but I am trying to learn the ropes around here and become a good contributor. Thanks! UnknownStory (Contributions) 23:59, 18 June 2010 (UTC)


What about a website like G4tv.com or a Newspaper website (CNN.com, for example?) BTW, I am taking your "advertisment" challenge... XPUnknownStory (Contributions) 00:14, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

I've never heard of G4tv.com, but CNN will certainly do. Most newspapers websites will do except for those that are anything but reliable (like that falungong paper.) Kayau Voting IS evil 00:17, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

G4tv.com is a website that G4, a Video Game based TV network, runs. I would assume it would be reliable because it is a TV network and aired the Expo that the game in question was first unveiled in. UnknownStory (Contributions) 00:21, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

  • It needs to establish its notability. Please remove the dead link from the external links section, or provide a copy from the Wayback Machine. Find some reliable sources, and not just from some random website, to use as references. Remember to use inline citations.
  • It needs a good copyedit.
  • Please add more links to it.
  • To improve it further, add some more categories to it and link related articles to it.
  • If you are the person in the article, note that you have a conflict of interest which is highly discouraged. (I think this may be the case as you signed your query 'Marc'.)

Yes, I read that paragraph a few days ago, but I'm taking a little bit of time to figure out what is going on. Two things that come to my mind are:

1. The templates are not part of MOTD.
2. You can write mottoes and quotes that were not approved by MOTD.

I must think over it and I want to wait for any further developments.

Note: You can write numbered lists starting with a number other than one.

Code:
#<li value="7"> seventh item
# eighth item
....


Result:
  1. seventh item
  2. eighth item

Edits vandalism?

Are the three edits by 117.195.227.172 vandalism?Gobbleswoggler (talk) 10:42, 28 July 2010 (UTC)

The first one, unless it is false information, should not constitute vandalism. As I have no expertise in this area, I wouldn't call the second edit vandalism. A person with knowledge in this field should be consulted in order ensure the verifiability of the edit. The third one is almost certainly OR and definitely lacks NPOV, and I wouldn't call it exactly encyclopaedic, so I think it's a kind of vandalism, but please warn the user with {{uw-npov1}} rather than {{uw-vand1}}, as IMHO his edits could be in good faith, so let's assume they are, for the time being.

Wikipedia:Miscellany for deletion/User:Ironwater/Holder of the end

Hi there. This is just a nitpick, so please feel free to delete after reading if you wish. I understand the intent of your comments in the discussion, but I don't think you're using the terms correctly. A straw man argument is when someone creates a caricature of their opponent's position and then argues against it; a red herring is when someone tries to distract their opponent from the real issue at hand. That is, they have specific meaning and are not synonyms for "poor arguments". User:Gustcarl hasn't done either of those things, he's just presenting a very weak defence of the page (IMO, the problem here is more likely sockpuppetry and not any logical fallacy). It's pretty much a forgone conclusion that the page will be deleted anyway, but I wanted to tip you off about this because when you use those terms incorrectly, you just make it easier for someone else to ignore your real points and attack your incorrect labelling - essentially providing them with their own strawman to demolish! Anyway, just a quick thought. Cheers! Matt Deres (talk) 23:32, 4 August 2010 (UTC)

Okay... :) Just wanted to counter-check. Bejinhan talks 12:02, 18 August 2010 (UTC)

PS: Aren't you getting bored of thousands of talkback templates from me yet?

 Done (see above). Kayau Voting IS evil 11:52, 18 August 2010 (UTC)
What have you done? WVRMADTalkGuestbook 11:57, 18 August 2010 (UTC)
Have you seen the diff? :) Kayau Voting IS evil 12:27, 18 August 2010 (UTC)
For some reason I can't view diffs, a screen pops up saying you have chosen to open index.php from http://en.wikipedia.org What should Firefox do with this file? Either a) open with (choose program) or b) Save File so I can't see what you've done. WVRMADTalkGuestbook 12:38, 18 August 2010 (UTC)
Then either: 1) switch to another browser or 2) look CAREFULLY. What's special about my user talk that wasn't there when you put the talkback on my page? Kayau Voting IS evil 12:56, 18 August 2010 (UTC)
Ah! I see now! I'm *honoured* to be stalked by you. (I've been following your talk page for about a month now, I've even got you contribution page open in another tab on my browser at the moment). WVRMADTalkGuestbook 13:03, 18 August 2010 (UTC)

Thank you so much for designing the Cryptobarnstar. I thought this would be a nice recognition of your work

Thanks! Especially since tomorrow will be my last day in Wikipedia until 2011... :-) Kayau Voting IS evil C U NEXT YEAR 10:39, 21 August 2010 (UTC)
And that is one of the things I admire about you, Kayau- your ability to stay away when needed. I can't seem to do it. sonia 10:50, 21 August 2010 (UTC)
It's very simple, really, just use the Wikibreak enforcer. It takes no special ability, just a user script. :) Kayau Voting IS evil C U NEXT YEAR 10:53, 21 August 2010 (UTC)
Bye Kayau! (I couldn't bear being away from Wikipedia for so long, barbaric)! WVRMADTalkGuestbook 11:10, 21 August 2010 (UTC)
Why are you going? I can't live without you here. --Extra 999 (Contact me + contribs) 16:23, 21 August 2010 (UTC)
I'm sure you'll be back with your IP after a few months days. ;) Derild4921 16:36, 21 August 2010 (UTC)
Last year I did manage to sneak a few edits as an IP in November. And no, I'm not gonna sneak back with an IP within a few days because, well, the enforcer isn't going to start tomorrow - the school calendar isn't released online yet. Kayau Voting IS evil C U NEXT YEAR 04:17, 22 August 2010 (UTC)

My turn:
That's very nice of both of you, especially after making lots of bot-like edits in zh.wikibooks. Wish all of you good luck while I'm away (and while I'm not away, but, well, you know what I mean.) ;-) Kayau Voting IS evil C U NEXT YEAR 13:18, 22 August 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for my smileback! (Maybe I should create a template for smilebacks - you have new smiles on ???'s talkpage!) WVRMADTalkGuestbook 16:52, 22 August 2010 (UTC)
Introducing my new template:
You have new smiles
Hello Kayau! Your smile has livened my day so much I have smiled back at you!
You can share the wikilove at any time by adding {{Smile}} or {{User:WVRMad/Smileback}} on someone's talk page.
What d'ya think? Good or what? WVRMADTalkGuestbook 17:48, 22 August 2010 (UTC)
NOOOOOO! I'll have to wait until christmas for you wise judgement on my template. WVRMADTalkGuestbook 18:13, 22 August 2010 (UTC)
