Welcome to the elections![edit]

Dear Loosmark, thank you for nominating yourself as a candidate in the 2010 Arbitration Committee elections. On behalf of the coordinators, allow me to welcome you to the election and make a few suggestions to help you get set up. By now, you ought to have written your nomination statement, which should be no more than 400 words and declare any alternate or former user accounts you have contributed under (or, in the case of privacy concerns, a declaration that you have disclosed them to the Arbitration Committee). Although there are no fixed guidelines for how to write a statement, note that many candidates treat this as an opportunity, in their own way, to put a cogent case as to why editors should vote for them—highlighting the strengths they would bring to the job, and convincing the community they would cope with the workload and responsibilities of being an arbitrator.

You should at this point have your own questions subpage; feel free to begin answering the questions as you please. Together, the nomination statement and questions subpage should be transcluded to your candidate profile, whose talkpage will serve as the central location for discussion of your candidacy. If you experience any difficulty setting up these pages, please follow the links in the footer below. If you need assistance, on this or any other matter (including objectionable questions or commentary by others on your candidate pages), please notify the coordinators at their talkpage. If you have followed these instructions correctly, congratulations, you are now officially a candidate for the Arbitration Committee. Good luck! Skomorokh 12:15, 23 November 2010 (UTC)


Loosmark, your disclosure on other accounts in your nomination statement currently reads "I have no alternative accounts." Could you amend this to indicate whether or not you have ever edited from another account? I am asking all candidates to ensure that their disclosures are full and categorical. Thanks, Skomorokh 13:58, 23 November 2010 (UTC)

Do you mean another account as in from somebody's else account? Obviously no, I have only ever edited under Loosmark account.  Dr. Loosmark  14:10, 23 November 2010 (UTC)

Some editors had prior accounts which they abandoned for whatever reason. If you could just add the above claim " I have only ever edited under Loosmark account" to your nomination statement that would be perfect. Sorry for the bother, Skomorokh 14:17, 23 November 2010 (UTC)
np, i will add that to my statement.  Dr. Loosmark  14:20, 23 November 2010 (UTC)
Great, thanks Loosmark. Skomorokh 14:25, 23 November 2010 (UTC)

I'm not sure "try to make wikipedia a nicer place for content creators by desyoping some d*ckhead admins who are here merely to play the "wikipedia game"." is entirely appropriate. May I politely request that you tone that down or remove it altogether from your statement? (For starters, arbs can't just desysop whoever they want, but calling people dickheads is not civil.) /ƒETCHCOMMS/ 17:45, 23 November 2010 (UTC)

I never said the Arbs can desyop whoever they want, however if an admins starts to create trouble and drama on regular basis he needs to be deysoped. But fine, I will try to tone done my statement in accordance to the wikipedia civility standard.  Dr. Loosmark  17:50, 23 November 2010 (UTC)
Thank you. /ƒETCHCOMMS/ 17:58, 23 November 2010 (UTC)

Questions from Lar[edit]

Hi. Best of luck in your upcoming trial by fire. As in previous years I have a series of questions I ask candidates. This year there are restrictions on the length and number of questions on the "official" page for questions, restrictions which I do not agree with, but which I will abide by. I nevertheless think my questions are important and relevant (and I am not the only person to think so, in previous years they have drawn favorable comment from many, including in at least one case indepth analysis of candidates answers to them by third parties). You are invited to answer them if you so choose. I suggest that the talk page of your questions page is a good place to put them and I will do so with your acquiescence (for example, SirFozzie's page already has them as do the majority of other candidates). Your answers, (or non-answers should you decide not to answer them), that will be a factor in my evaluation of your candidacy. Please let me know as soon as practical what your wish is. Thanks and best of luck. (please answer here, I'll see it, and it keeps things together better) ++Lar: t/c 18:30, 23 November 2010 (UTC)

The talk page of my questions page is fine.  Dr. Loosmark  20:30, 23 November 2010 (UTC)
Added there. ++Lar: t/c 22:19, 23 November 2010 (UTC)

Questions and Answers[edit]

Thank you for answering my questions so promptly. I was partly prompted by the work I did on the use of historical sources Franco-Mongol Alliance case, which was private at the time but was subsequently disclosed: Wikipedia talk:Requests for arbitration/Franco-Mongol alliance#Report on use of sources. Good luck in the elections. Sam Blacketer (talk) 21:21, 24 November 2010 (UTC)


You have been blocked from editing for a period of 1 month for abusing multiple accounts. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions. If you would like to be unblocked, you may appeal this block by adding the text {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}} below this notice, but you should read the guide to appealing blocks first.

Request reason:

I have not abused multiple account. I request who "informed" the checkusers about alleged "irregularities" in my editing is disclosed.

Decline reason:

Checkuser evidence very conclusively shows that you have used several dozen accounts. In addition to the technical evidence, the concerns we were presented with brought to light a number of behavioral similarities, which we felt were unusual enough to merit a closer investigation. As for who brought this to our attention, that is not relevant to any appeal, nor is there any reason you should be told. Hersfold (t/a/c) 22:12, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first, then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page until your block has expired.

Here is the list. That is a lot of sockpuppets. In what way do you think that operating that many accounts is not an abuse of multiple accounts? What is the legitimate reason that you think you have for using so many accounts? -FisherQueen (talk · contribs) 22:00, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

One year[edit]

Loosmark, I have blocked your account for a full year as a matter of arbitration enforcement under WP:DIGWUREN discretionary sanctions. You've been socking to evade a six month topic ban.[1] The matter is further compounded by deception in the candidate statement where you did not declare any of these 40+ socks. So we have WP:SOCK, WP:DIGWUREN and WP:GAME violations of a very serious nature. Jehochman Talk 22:16, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

He's got enough blocks for a WP:ABUSE report if someone cares to file one for his IP. AndrewN talk 22:53, 28 November 2010 (UTC)


Loosmark, there has been a consensus at AN for a community ban. This means you cannot edit on en.WP under any account without the consent of the community or arbcom. Moreover, you have been blocked for one year, owing to the wildly over the top sock farm you ran in a sanctioned topic area (whilst standing for this year's arbcom election so less). After one year has gone by, if you don't try to edit here or cause any other disruption on Wikipedia, the standard offer may be open to you. Gwen Gale (talk) 09:52, 29 November 2010 (UTC)

Ok. I will respect the decision of the community, and will not edit wikipedia anymore. I apology to everybody and ask that somebody puts that tag "retired" here.  Dr. Loosmark  11:08, 29 November 2010 (UTC)
No, you do not get {{retired}}, you got {{Banned user}} && {{sockpuppeteer}}. Jack Merridew 19:28, 29 November 2010 (UTC)
