Gonzaga College SJ[edit]

The recent removal of my additions to the Notable Alumni section are unclear as to their reason and mistaken. Ian Featherstone is a successful trainer and part time Jockey with Goffs stables, Naas, Co. Kildare. Killian O'Toole is a professional gambler as of 5 years and is involved in the creation of odds and prices for Ladbrokes and Paddy Power. William Kavanagh SJ is a new priest serving his first term in Calcutta helping the poor. Finally Patrick Lynch is a journalist and editor for the Economic section in the national newspaper, The Irish Times. Thank you for your repeated service and the reinstatement of these Alumni is appreciated. Regards —Preceding unsigned comment added by Plynch90 (talkcontribs) 23:09, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

Gonzaga College[edit]

Hi there, just looking for some advice. There are a number of users (who I believe are the same person) who are both blatantly vandalising Gonzaga College, and making dubious additions to the Notable Alumni section. I don't want to fall foul of the 3RR here because although the additions are odd and unlikely, they can't really be classified as blatant vandalism. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Todd Karr & User talk:Toddkarr[edit]

You may want to look at your actions on this one again. Unless I'm wildly mistaken, the creator of an article blanking the page can be construed as a request for speedy deletion under WP:CSD G7. At the very least I think giving him a warning and telling him to provide an informative edit summary when he had already done so is a case of biting the newbie.

Ok, I think I'm ready to go up, I've worked through everything at User:MBisanz/AC and can't thnk of any new areas I want to learn. And I've finished my most back-logged article work. Do you think I'm ready and do you plan on writing a co-nom? MBisanz talk 18:55, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

Unfair revert.[edit]


Hi, the recent edit you made to Golden plates has been reverted, as it appears to be unconstructive. Use the sandbox for testing; if you believe the edit was constructive, ensure that you provide an informative edit summary. You may also wish to read the introduction to editing. Thanks. Keilana|Parlez ici 23:05, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

What the hell? it was a constructive edit with a clear edit summary! Your reason for reverting me doesn't even make sense.—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

Code Lyoko[edit]

Please unprotect Code Lyoko, the dispute is over. -Karaku (talk) 23:42, 8 February 2008 (UTC)


Hi. :) If I've done this one wrong (User talk:Sedlam) please help me fix it. As I mentioned at ANI (where I went seeking advice), I've had no experience to speak of with sock puppets and none with check-user. Since I advised the complaining editor how to proceed, I thought it incumbent on me to follow up, based on that statement on checkuser that "In most cases, any block or other action based on the outcome will not be taken by the checkuser-people or the clerks. Instead, you will have to do this yourself." --Moonriddengirl (talk) 00:39, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Thank you. I'm more than happy to stay hands off of sock puppetry in most cases. :D I've got quite enough doing at WP:CSD and WP:BLP. I'll keep this in mind for the future. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 00:47, 9 February 2008 (UTC)
  • If you are tagging a confirmed account, it might be better to use {{sockpuppetCheckuser|name of puppet|name of puppet}} so it links to the appropriate case subpage. Just a heads up. Spebi 00:58, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Why is Griot's block indefinite?[edit]

Ok, so there's CU evidence that he's been sockpuppeting, but why the indefinite block? On the sockpuppet accounts, sure, but on his main account? He's a longstanding Wikipedia editor, and the combined total of sockpuppet activity isn't bad enough to justify an indef, as I see it... Georgewilliamherbert (talk) 01:02, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

I would prefer to discuss this with you in more detail first, but I am strongly inclined to lower Griot's block to a week sometime tomorrow morning. If you object, please contact me on ANI or my talk page or here. Thanks. Georgewilliamherbert (talk) 02:49, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Could I also ask why you redirected Griot's talk page? He's entitled to post an unblock request there if he wishes, and the redirect might interfere. --Akhilleus (talk) 05:52, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

I don't want to sound overly critical, but this action in my view showed tremendously bad faith given the size of the offence we're looking at - the sockpuppet user and talk page was completely uncalled for, we don't do that even to some of our worst so I don't see why we should start doing it with someone with a generally good edit history who seems to have a single offence on the file. Note I'm completely uninvolved in the disputes which led to this, but saw it at AN/I and was just blown away. I reblocked for a week per the discussion above and at AN/I. Orderinchaos 10:23, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

Fair enough. Keilana|Parlez ici 16:07, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

AIV oddity[edit]

Sorry but I have to ask... what was this about? One edit ever and it doesn't even look like vandalism. Is there sockpuppetry involved that I'm not aware of? I was going to let it go before finding out that you're an admin. Color me confused... —Wknight94 (talk) 05:20, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

My userpage[edit]

K, if you don't like something on my talk, feel free to remove the whole thing, not hide it, as you did the other day. As long as it's not that big, bold thing I call my "rant line", the cup of tea, or the talkheader, it's okay to remove content from my page. --Gp75motorsports REV LIMITER 12:58, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Hey, sorry for the vandalism. Do u go to Gonzaga in Dublin. I know some people there, cud ya say hi to them please??? Please reply it's important
No, it's cool. And no, I stay in America (can't travel too much, gotta save up for parts and stuff). --Gp75motorsports REV LIMITER 05:33, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

Again (again!)[edit]

In reference to this, both users have started again, with I vonH still harassing myself and another editor with edit summaries[2][3] and with I vonH and Tfoxworth both continuing their reversions, most of which were, as previously posted, initiated from their stalking. Charles 23:51, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Would you be initiating it or would I? Either way, I can weigh in. Charles 00:00, 10 February 2008 (UTC)
I think the just attention would be received if you initiated it and I followed in with my comments, explaining the situation, etc. Charles 00:04, 10 February 2008 (UTC)
Thank you, Keilana, I have commented at your ANI report and expanded a little bit on the time line and my experiences. I am anticipating (and hoping) that any intervening parties ask some clarifying questions as it is the best way to address or present the most important points in the whole volume of the situation. Too long of an initial post by me might have been overwhelming. Charles 02:21, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

It seems there is very little comment at AN/I. Does that mean that a block cannot be issued? Literally, as I was posting at AN/I, the users were reverting changes to articles. A third party added a brief comment to the discussion but that has been all. Charles 20:19, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

York Minster Stained Glass[edit]

Hi, Keilana, what a coincidence, I obviously know you from around WP:AN/WP:ANI. I have been planning this article for a little while but got bogged down in an RfA(!). I have a location plan you can see here (top row, right hand) and intend to write generally about the main windows since they are well-documented. I have my own photos but if yours are already on Commons it would make sense to re-use those. Maybe I'll make a start this coming week. Regards, --Rodhullandemu (Talk) 03:02, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for your kind words. I will go through my photos tomorrow and see what I can find, I spent many years in York so I've got plenty. Any omissions I can source from yours if you don't mind. Once the article is up & running it would be nice to see it as a GA and maybe an FA, since the topic is well-sourced and worthy in itself. An extra pair of eyes would be useful. Cheers,--Rodhullandemu (Talk) 03:13, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

Dave and Rich Christiano[edit]

In regard to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Dave and Rich Christiano, I would recommend against making "procedural" AfD nominations if you believe the article is not a speedy deletion candidate but you have no opinion as to whether it should be kept or deleted. It's best to let someone who really wants the article deleted submit the AfD nomination instead. Otherwise, we could have an AfD nomination outstanding in which nobody participating in the discussion really wants the article to be deleted. --Metropolitan90 (talk) 07:41, 10 February 2008 (UTC)


I'm a first-time contributor. I inadvertently saved my article prematurely and was planning on doing some significant editing. Why did you delete it so fast, that is literally minutes after it was posted?!? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Seanjpf (talkcontribs) 17:29, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

But where is my article to continue working on it? Do I have to start from the beginning? The interface is confusing enough for a first-timer like myself, without having someone delete my work without giving enough time to address concerns.

Please reinstate my article to my sandbox. I was having difficulties with making my references work—Preceding unsigned comment added by Seanjpf (talkcontribs)

Hi there. First attempt at editing deleted. Could you give me a more detailed explanation? User degar2, —Preceding unsigned comment added by Degar2 (talkcontribs) 19:49, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

Wow. Thanks for the quick response and helpful advice. I appreciate the need for verification and citation but apart from having the physical Cassette in my possesion ( I am in the process of converting several hundred cassettes onto mp3 format) and reliable confirmation of this album from Amazon and other record retailers I am at a loss to provide anything further. I am so far indebted to the extremely useful information that I have recieved for Wiki concerning Recording artists that I just wanted to pass on information for the use of others in a similar situation as myself Degar2 (talk) 20:07, 10 February 2008 (UTC)Degar2 (talk) 20:22, 10 February 2008 (UTC)


I believe the dispute over Interpretations of 2001: A Space Odyssey are mostly over. The new draft proposal is ready to be put into the mainspace. The disputing editor may still want to tag the article, but as long as he puts it up for AfD and puts the appropriate tags in place, I don't see a problem. If you can unprotect the article, i think it'll be fine. Dreadstar 22:42, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

Thanks! I put the new version into place. Let's see what happens now... Dreadstar 23:00, 10 February 2008 (UTC)
I'm afraid Dreadstar misled you – there's a number of issues still under dispute, and I fear that another request for protection might be forthcoming. I'll do my best to work things out in a civil manner with the other editors, but I also fear that this article should have remained protected for a longer period of time. Groupthink (talk) 23:16, 10 February 2008 (UTC)
As I feared, Dreadstar is being unreasonable and is reverting my removal of material that violates WP:SPS. I am re-requesting full protection at WP:PROTECT. Groupthink (talk) 23:52, 10 February 2008 (UTC)
It was declined. Don't edit war. When your block expires, if you do it again, I will protect the article and block you. Keilana|Parlez ici 01:07, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

I came across this checking Groupthink's edits, see his talkpage entry I just made about unblocking. RlevseTalk 01:08, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

Ah, thanks Rlevse. He can serve a 24-hour block for edit-warring, I would have personally gone with 48 hours at the least. Keilana|Parlez ici 01:12, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

I seem to have inadvertently stirred up this anthill three weeks ago, and am distressed at the rancor that has resulted. I cannot figure out if it is substantive or just personal. I got a nice apology from Groupthink on my talk page (for newbie biting) a week ago, which I appreciated, and it appears all parties are dedicated to improving the article. So I had hoped we were over the worst, but it ain't so, it seems. There's no big rush -- if it takes three months to get a really fine article, that is OK with me. But I'd hope everyone would feel OK about it. Anyhow, any suggestions (or criticisms) to help the process would be appreciated. Thanks, Bill Wwheaton (talk) 03:01, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

Hi, Keilana. Thank you for the unblock, and for reprotecting the article under contention. Sorry I didn't reply to you sooner, but it took me a little bit to obtain a new IP address (although my account is unblocked, the IP address I was posting from appears to remain blocked).
After a nice walk in the park to watch the sun set and some time to reflect, it occurs to me that I need to walk away from this dispute. I'm still going to call for an RfC, but after that, I'm going to cease my involvement with this particular article. It's time to let others make my case for me. My apologies for any feathers ruffled, inconveniences induced, etc. Groupthink (talk) 03:10, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

Thanks Keilana. Just had a look at the links that you have sent me. Brilliant. I shall have to investigate further. I haven't found any mention of this album reaching any chart positions. By the way, still struggling to find my way around the discussion and talk navigations. Do you pick up my talk from this page or from your own page. It's a bit confusing at the moment but I'm sure it will get easier. Regards Dave Degar2 (talk) 12:11, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

Page blanked by author[edit]

Though a page blanking is usually vandalism and needs to be reverted, it's worth looking first at the history, because sometimes, as with T3 (The Think Tank) just now, the author has blanked his own page as a request for deletion (I had tagged it as spam and pointed him to the Business' FAQ). Then it's rather hard for him to be accused of vandalism - the thing to do is to put a {{db-author}} tag on, which requests a speedy G7 "Author requests deletion or has blanked the page". Apologies if I'm telling you things you know already - I've told this author not to worry. Regards JohnCD (talk) 19:16, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

changes to Down page[edit]

I don't understand your deletion of the history I submitted for the band Down. Although the information may not seem important to you, it was grammatically correct, abided by wikipedia editing rules and most importantly, chronicals their underground legendary status. Their early tape trading success, although not known of by new fans, is the reason they were given a record deal as at that particular time no major label was interested in a metal supergroup. The relevance of this is also important considering Down's huge cult status within the metal community and their impact, which was signified by Metal Hammer's voting their ablum Down III as the 2nd best album of 2007 (behind Megadeth's 1st studio release in 3years). Is it posible for you to undelete or rewrite what you deleted?

The site is for photos relating to the Penzance area, which as far as I can see is related to pretty much all the articles he added it to, with the exception of the Pirates one. I still would suggest that it might have been better to point the editor to Wikipedia's policies instead of jumping in with a series of templates like that. There is a template for new editors who appear to be spamming, which I think would have been more appropriate. DuncanHill (talk) 22:26, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

Help Wiki[edit]

Hi, I'm not sure if you know this already but Help Wiki was shutdown and at my request AGK has given me the xml data for all the pages so we don't loose our hard work. At the moment I'm still thinking over what to do with the content but I think incorporating it back into Wikipedia is the way to go. Unfortunately I don't think the CC license used is compatible with the GNUFDL(its the no commercial restriction in the CC license that is the problem). Anyway if I am going to incorporate that pages back into Wikipedia I'll need you to release your work under the GNUFDL, just something like "I agree to release my work under the GNUFDL" will be fine. If you have any other suggestions or comments feel free to tell me them. --Chris 09:17, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

Red Dog mine[edit]

Hi -

I'm new to wikipedia, so bear with me.

You reverted a series of edits by me to the Red Dog mine article. In doing so you removed references scattered around the article and re-instated spelling errors scattered around the article.


Can I guess that it was only the latest edit that you wished to revert: removing the references and reinstating the spelling errors was a mistake on your part?

Why/how did you do the reversion within literally seconds of my posting the latest edit? Why did you do the reversion at all? Is it inappropriate to carefully and in a balanced (and well-referenced) manner address a facet of a subject that is: 1)a significant aspect of the subject 2)of particular interest to many/most people who are interested in the subject 3)widely misreported elsewhere on the web?

Troll usurping YOUR Identity as an admin[edit]

Hi, there's a troll who's just usurped your signature in my talk page in order to harrass me and scare me.see:

As a matter of fact,I've been deleting his edits in the article Classic metal because he's proven to be a permanently banned user sock puppet. So he's harrassing me today and wants to scare/impress me with the rule of the 3 reversed edits, by usurping your signature he's found on my talk page.

I know he is a permanently banned user because you guys recently proved his IP range to be those of a banned user: remember this case: Wikipedia:Requests for checkuser/Case/Mark7532222

This guy has been trashing the classic metal page and my user page for months...The guy is harrasing and blackmailing me: He wants me to add bands in the article otherwise he gives me hell...And I refuse this blackmail.So he's giving me hell.

Please can you do something about it. After several months of hell, vadalism, harrassing, trolling in the classic metal page and in my user page, I'm really tired of his attacks and I feel helpless. I don't know what to do anymore...Frédérick Duhautpas (talk) 18:51, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

YOU'RE the one that said you would add the bands if I stop.[7] You didn't, so I decided to add them and you kept reverting it. (talk) 19:23, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

Yes I did say that but in response to your original blackmail, but you didn't stop anyway (here's the proof: your today's trolling activity) and you kept on blackmailing meFrédérick Duhautpas (talk) 20:08, 16 February 2008 (UTC)
I've blocked this IP for 3 months. RlevseTalk 19:31, 16 February 2008 (UTC)
Thanks you very much, but note that this IP is the one of a permanently banned user with countless sockpuppets. I'm afraid he will come back with some other IP with similar rangeFrédérick Duhautpas (talk) 20:08, 16 February 2008 (UTC)
I know, I'm looking into a range block. RlevseTalk 23:24, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

It's a dynamic IP range, so can only block each one or revert, block, ignore. RlevseTalk 23:34, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

As expected the troll has come back today on the classic metal article. Thanks for the advice anyway. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Frédérick Duhautpas (talkcontribs) 17:59, 17 February 2008 (UTC)
I'd just revert, block, ignore; if I see any I'll block for awhile. Keilana|Parlez ici 23:58, 16 February 2008 (UTC)


You got to me before I could even give you one of the generic thanks-cards! Ah well, I guess I'll go reap the full non-existent rewards of this non-existent cabal. Nousernamesleftcopper, not wood 23:12, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

I would like the scripts. Thanks! Nousernamesleftcopper, not wood 23:57, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

Request for Admin Coaching[edit]

I requested admin coaching and I noticed you were up for one more student. Would you mind being my coach? scetoaux (talk) (My contributions.) 01:04, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

Hello, Keilana. You have new messages at Scetoaux's talk page.
You can remove this notice at any time by removing the {{Talkback}} or {{Tb}} template.
Eh, I'm not sure how to use this template. I'd imagine it'd get quite cluttered if I left this one someone's page every time I commented back to them on my talk page. scetoaux (talk) (My contributions.) 01:36, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

Ha Ha but seriously[edit]

You have been mentioned (not by me) on AN/I for your Pointy revert of the Rouge Admins redlink. I'd like to point out i think its taking the p*** to the max considering how heated the CfD was. (Hypnosadist) 02:58, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

My rougeness knows no bounds. OK maybe some bounds, but not that. Keilana|Parlez ici 03:59, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

Thank you/Arigato[edit]

Just a brief note of thanks for the time and attention you invested in the name-change process which converted User:Ooperhoofd to User:Tenmei. --Tenmei (talk) 18:56, 18 February 2008 (UTC)


Hi, I've edited my draft of the SierraSil article in my sandbox. Care to take a look? I've taken care to avoid making claims of any kind, certainly not without citations. I'd like to push this live and see what kind of response it gets from the community. Thanks again for your help (btw, I don't work for SierraSil, but just believe in it, as do legions of others like me). —Preceding unsigned comment added by Seanjpf (talkcontribs) 21:48, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Requests for mediation/Sun tanning[edit]

This issue began February 2, and we haven't received any formal argument from one party since Mediation was requested on February 4, about two weeks ago. This seems a bit slow, even by Wikipedia's standards. Not sure of where the process should go from here or when. PHARMBOY (TALK) 16:41, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

OhanaUnited's RFA[edit]


You mentioned you had some admin scripts? Now that I've wet my feet doing it the hard way, I'm ready to move up to the easier methods. MBisanz talk 03:56, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

Ok, got what looks useful. Thanks. MBisanz talk 05:50, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

Sun tanning image debate[edit]

Thanks for your patience. I have made a statement on the mediation discussion page. Please let me know what to do next. Thank you. User:Dandelion (talk|contribs) 04:17, 20 February 2008 (UTC)


Thanks for your much needed assistance & guidance! —Preceding unsigned comment added by Seanjpf (talkcontribs) 05:03, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

Sun tanning 3O[edit]

Keilana, thanks for taking this Mediation request. I am the other editor (besides Pharmboy, who started the RfM) that has disagreed with Dandelion regarding the nude/topless images. I don't know what level you require or want my input (or how appropriate it would be since the disagreement started between the other two). If you need anything from me I would be glad to help. Please let me know what you need from me. Thanks. Padillah (talk) 13:17, 20 February 2008 (UTC)
