A barnstar for you![edit]

Writers Barnstar Hires.png The Writer's Barnstar
So, here it is Kudpung, the Writer's Barnstar, for your significant recent work in writing for and publishing the The Signpost. Your initiative to keep this reader's resource active is appreciated. I also enjoyed your writing style and candor in the pieces I read. Thanks again for your proactive approach on Wikipedia. North America1000 08:26, 20 August 2018 (UTC)

Northamerica1000, thank you for the kind words. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 04:59, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

A(nother) barnstar for you![edit]

Signpost Barnstar Hires.png The Signpost Barnstar
For all your work on the WP:Signpost, and helping to keep it afloat. I'm really inconsistent, and a pretty awful writer, but I hope to be contributing some to the 'Post for a long time, so again, thanks for your work. It's been a pleasure working with you. Till next time — Eddie891 Talk Work 23:09, 29 August 2018 (UTC)
Eddie891, thank you too, for the kind words. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 05:00, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

Vastly inappropriate shutdown of your voice[edit]

I found this vastly inappropriate and disturbing. Since when is pre-emptive muzzling of a response to an accusation of wrongdoing an appropriate action with the admin toolset? ☆ Bri (talk) 16:04, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

I find it equally as disturbing and will be considering requesting community feedback as it is not a one off. Alex Shih (talk) 16:17, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
It's not, Bri but it is a classic example of admins not being allowed to defend themselves when trolled, harassed, attacked, and finally bullied by other admins and totally falsely accused of misogyny. I made a fully explanatory email and was careful that it was polite in spite of being subjected to harassment. The warning is out of order and clearly oversteps admin authority, I have not made a PA against anyone - I'm too intelligent and careful in this totally oversensitive environment of Wikipedia, and I have not retired or resigned under any clouds whatsoever. FWIW, I have developed a debilitating age related ailment forcing me to spend half my time on my back and what's left of it training my staff to take over running my company. I'll not be responding to those wild insinuations, because I'm not going to have my immaculate block log and 10 years of clean dedication to this project sullied on the whim of an admin who hasn't even cared to understand what's going on, even if a more friendly admin has the good grace to unblock. There are many, many people out there who know me personally and know I'm not an idiot. Alex, thanks for your support, but escalating further won't help because I haven't the energy to defend myself and the peanut gallery would be calling for my head - as you know, they always do where an admin is involved. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 16:39, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
Kudpung, this is with love and warmest wishes for all the work you've continuously done here. I'm sorry for what you've had/have to go through on a daily basis. I've known TNT as such a sensible admin and am sure they realize the misstep they've taken here. But this message is not for them, it's for you. Please take care of your health and sidestep the rampage in the way you only know you can. Love again, Lourdes 01:15, 1 September 2018 (UTC)

ANI discussion[edit]

I have started a discussion at WP:ANI#Personal attacks, a block and an unblock: review requested. Fram (talk) 05:50, 31 August 2018 (UTC)

Fram, What admin or other action you may have taken was in the very best of good faith. Of that I am wholly convinced, whether or not it was in the best interest of escalation or de-escalation., as I mentioned to Alex Shih above. Now that it's very public we'll all have to let the community decide. There is a lot I would like to offer to the discussion, because from one person's perspective it's going to be one sided, but it's Friday evening and I can't and won't be logging in to Wikipedia over the weekend, besides which, under the threat of a block, I've been effectively muzzled by a steward from saying anything - even if it is debatable that that warning were appropriate or justified, or even of itself a PA..

A thanks[edit]

I was compelled to drop by and drop a barnstar after catching up on this month's Signpost, but it looks like Northamerica1000 and Eddie891 have beaten me to it. Due to other commitments, I have only been sporadically involved in the project as of late, and the Signpost has proved invaluable in my efforts to keep up with… well, the news. I've been appreciating your contributions from afar for many years and just wanted to put my thanks in words. Though I sometimes don't agree with some of your stances or decisions, I'd like to recognize the immense amount of energy you've put into keeping the paper going. All the best, Airplaneman 15:29, 31 August 2018 (UTC)

thank you for everything[edit]

Hi. We didnt interact directly much, but your presence and work was all around. You, and your work meant a lot to me. When I am not on computer, I like to go back, through the history of enwiki. Like way back. We once even talked about the first ever WP:300 (that was like 10 years ago), remember? My point is, there were many occassions when/where I saw your contributions and/or activity. You are a very important contributor to enwiki. I hope everything is fine in your personal life, and that you remain active here; even if less active than usual. Again, i hope everything is fine, and i hope all the best to you. Again, thanks for everything, —usernamekiran(talk) 01:41, 3 September 2018 (UTC)

  • I second this ^. Your contributions are definitely valued and I hope to see you around. Thank you for all you have done for Wikipedia. --TheSandDoctor Talk 17:43, 3 September 2018 (UTC)

@Usernamekiran and TheSandDoctor:, Thank you both for the kind words. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 07:46, 4 September 2018 (UTC)

  • I also wanted to thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia (esp. the Signpost) and for the advice you gave me the last few times I considered running for adminship. I always found your advice very insightful and helpful. IntoThinAir (formerly Everymorning) talk 16:31, 6 September 2018 (UTC)
  • Fair winds and following seas, Kudpung. We'll sorely miss your tireless commitment to Wikipedia. Please take care of your health, and I wish you much improvement on that score. Hope to see you around. Aloha ... Softlavender (talk) 02:05, 12 September 2018 (UTC)
