Enshrined so I won't forget it ...



Hey Kosh. There are so many issue with that statement that I felt it important to drop by.

  • policy should be enforced as written - from a high level WP:POLEMIC is a guideline and WP:NOTBURO is policy. The principle is what matters, not exact wording of the rules. Disputes are solved by discussion, not strict adherence to the rules. Does that make sense? The "rules" are just a description of what's happened before and likely will happen again... generally the right thing to do, but not be followed blindly. No matter whether you're right or wrong on the underlying issue, not understanding this fundamental principle is the reason you are blocked.
  • So, on to the underlying issue. Is the content on [ name redacted here only ] page in violation of POLEMIC? Honestly, I'd say no. POLEMIC in bold refers to Very divisive or offensive material not related to encyclopedia editing. Is what he's saying offensive? Barely. Very divisive? Not really. AND it's related to encyclopedic editing. It just doesn't fit in that section. It's not targeted at individuals or a specific group, let alone attacking or vilifying them. It's not a pre-meditated nasty attack, it's a person ranting on their way out the door. I don't agree with a word of it, but it's important to let people express themselves in situations like that.

This way of thinking is fundamental to Wikipedia, it's why IAR exists. WormTT(talk) 11:15, 29 September 2015 (UTC)

Considering that my edit spoke of the fact that Tullian has publicly debated other with regards to his views, and the links I referenced go DIRECTLY to those debates, there should not be an issue. — Preceding unsigned comment added by BaptistBolt (talkcontribs) 18:51, 13 May 2013

Support request with team editing experiment project[edit]

Dear tech ambassadors, instead of spamming the Village Pump of each Wikipedia about my tiny project proposal for researching team editing (see here: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:IdeaLab/Research_team_editing), I have decided to leave to your own discretion if the matter is relevant enough to inform a wider audience already. I would appreciate if you could appraise if the Wikipedia community you are more familiar with could have interest in testing group editing "on their own grounds" and with their own guidance. In a nutshell: it consists in editing pages as a group instead of as an individual. This social experiment might involve redefining some aspects of the workflow we are all used to, with the hope of creating a more friendly and collaborative environment since editing under a group umbrella creates less social exposure than traditional "individual editing". I send you this message also as a proof that the Inspire Campaign is already gearing up. As said I would appreciate of *you* just a comment on the talk page/endorsement of my project noting your general perception about the idea. Nothing else. Your contribution helps to shape the future! (which I hope it will be very bright, with colors, and Wikipedia everywhere) Regards from User:Micru on meta.

Splits[edit]

Master KoshVarlon, I didn't think that my splittings would become such a big deal. I made such splits on R.A. Salvatore, Stephen Donaldson, Robert Jordan, just to name a few, and didn't imagine that I would be bullied and shouted around, because there aren't that many users who patrol the talk pages, so I decided to be bold and split them. The user who has reported me is not a bad person, but I think this is just diminiutive and disparaging, concerning my lengthy experience, working here on Wikipedia, and also it is delay for the work on these articles. I beg you not to block me, because in fact, I intend to continue such work and splits of lengthy bibliographies and in fact to be more uncompromising with the user who reported me, because I kind of look at the whole matter more as a "cavil retail" than a serious Wikipedia matter.

Kindest regards:The Mad Hatter (talk)

Westminster School, Dubai[edit]

Sorry, reverted one too many edits there. Dan D. Ric (talk) 14:20, 23 December 2016 (UTC)

Looking again, I believe the edits I reverted, Ghahnsnakkavsvvs adding that the school was started by “Coolgirlxoxo,” Ghahnsnak adding "We only accept lit students," as the motto, which I see no where on the school's website, and is hardly motto-like, and finally the addition of “Not recommended,” by Lollyxoxx, were all vandalisms. I have once again reverted them. Please look before you leap. Dan D. Ric (talk) 14:46, 23 December 2016 (UTC)
Please look at this Diff:https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Westminster_School,_Dubai&diff=next&oldid=756333029
I believe you reverted to Hitler here. At any rate, there was so much vandalism it was difficult to straighten out. I trusted Serols to have reverted to a good version but there was vandalism in his last. Again, the three edits I initially reverted WERE all vandals, I just didn't revert far enough.
Please accept my apology for anything you may have construed as uncivil. Dan D. Ric (talk) 15:22, 23 December 2016 (UTC)

World_Financial_Group[edit]

Hi, Kosh:

Thanks for the explanation. I read your article about World Financial Group and find it is misleading due to the following reasons.

1. Your open statement that it is an MLM company does not have legal proof. Your citation [1] does not state it. And your citation [2] is not available now.

2. You can search for statement that WFG is an MLM company. However, I presented you the reason why it is not. That is, associates in WFG does not make money by recruiting. They make money by selling products and/or provide training for other agents. The fact that associates in WFG have the privilege to recruit does not necessary mean it is a MLM company. If you do think it is an MLM company, please provide solid reasoning.

3. If you are not biased, it is good practice to include opinions on both sides.

4. Please do not under-estimate your influence to people by provide such conclusions. As I said, you do not have solid reasoning. Or you just provide affirmative citations for your opinion.

Sincerely,

List of fictional dogs[edit]

Hi KoshVorlon. I just wanted to let you know that I have reverted your use of rollback here. You left a {{uw-test1}} warning on the user's talk page, but upon reviewing the diffs, the last one did look like a test (adding "zzz" with no edit summary), so I can see why you reverted, but the two prior edits added substantive information that got removed in the rollback.

January 2017[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Zppix. I noticed that you made a comment on the page User talk:Jewhater420 that didn't seem very civil, so it has been removed. Wikipedia is built on collaboration, so it's one of our core principles to interact with one another in a polite and respectful manner. If you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Just because they appear to be an vandal editor doesn't give you the right to be uncivil with them, I appreciate the anti-vandal work but you still have to follow WP:CIVIL regardless if they are an vandal or not.

Your signature[edit]

Just wanted to give you a heads up that you should really fix your new signature. I think the code is broken. It looks cool, but it's screwing up the talk pages it appears on (e.g., User talk:2A00:23C4:1000:9500:146:C713:8A2F:A85C). IronGargoyle (talk) 20:38, 3 January 2017 (UTC)

Jihad in Trinidad and Tobago[edit]

Hi Why are you reverting my changes?

I found interesting materials therfeore could add a lot of material to Jam and main page about Islam on the islands as well. Cautious (talk) 21:19, 3 January 2017 (UTC)

Sir[edit]

You are a fool. If you'd like to know the actual version of events, petition the National Archives of the Federal Government of the United States. They will tell you that the information you request is classified.

If you'd like access to your history, which I am certain you do not, you will race to delete information that doesn't align with your agenda. Public opinion has exactly no relevance.

Confirm or deny that the Earthquake that caused the nuclear meltdown in Japan occurred on X/11 at X:46. My sources are senior officials in the United States Government, who think it is a joke.

Revert on Dhole (Cthulhu Mythos)[edit]

Hi there! May I ask why you performed this revert on the Dhole (Cthulhu Mythos) article? I thought restoring the quotation to the original spelling (the very spelling that got it included in the article) would be fairly uncontroversial... -- Perey (talk) 18:28, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

Ah, but if you look again, you'll see that the article describes how Lovecraft mentioned "dholes" in one story and "bholes" in another. I'm not 100% convinced that these are two names for the same thing, but in any case the passage using "bholes" should be left with that spelling. Anyway, thanks for the remarkably prompt reply, and carry on gnoming! -- Perey (talk) 18:46, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

Sorry About The Edit on Ctuhlu I'm sorry, my friend trolled me by editing that page. I promise it won't happen again...

Your signature[edit]

You've been warned more than often enough about this. If you continue to misuse templates to get around Wikipedia:Signatures#Length—which as you're well aware, is non-negotiable—you'll be blocked for disruption. Every other editor on Wikipedia is capable of using Special:Preferences correctly, and you've been here long enough (and been warned often enough) that "I didn't know" isn't going to wash as an excuse. ‑ Iridescent 21:10, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

If you haven't done so already, please can you remove the Timestamp template from your signature. Currently it is marking every IP talkpage you've signed for deletion, and I'm about to go offline and don't have the time to tidy them all up. Yunshui  16:18, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
