User:MVOO/Health of Dick Cheney[edit]

I'm guessing you're offline or busy, so I went ahead and userfied the article to User:MVOO/Health of Dick Cheney. If you don't want it, stick {{db-u1}} on it and an admin will come a long and sort it out. If you want me to email you the text for use elsewhere, just drop a note on my talk page. If you decide to merge some of it into Dick Cheney, let me know and I'll move things around so the history stays intact. Speaking as just an experienced editor, I would say the best option of preserving some of the content would be to merge it with Cheney's article. I trust you not to do anything silly like move it back. Please consult the deleting admin, in this case Tim Song (talk · contribs · blocks · protections · deletions · page moves · rights · RfA), before restoring it to the mainspace and feel free to ask me if you need anything else admin-related. Best, HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 02:27, 29 July 2010 (UTC)

Your Request to be Blocked[edit]

Since you haven't done anything bad as of yet, an admin isn't likely to block you (as we don't block people because they ask). But you can, in a technical way, block yourself. Use this script and it will enforce a Wikibreak on this account. This script will not let you edit for the time you have determined. Once that time has expired, you will be able to edit again. Just like an admin block, but you are doing it yourself. You can set it for as long or as short as you like. - NeutralhomerTalk • 07:28, 29 July 2010 (UTC)

How to edit[edit]

Your behaviour here, MVOO, is not the way to behave. Editing quietly, respectfully and collegiately will serve you better. (talk) 08:32, 29 July 2010 (UTC)

Barack Obama article probation[edit]

Please read Wikipedia:General sanctions/Obama article probation carefully and do not edit-war. You've made the same edit three times in three hours. This is grounds for immediate block, as the article is on probation. Consider this an "only warning"; it may be that another admin will block you for disruption anyway but I'm going to WP:AGF for the moment.  Frank  |  talk  20:31, 18 December 2010 (UTC)

Only twice, but I will abide by 2RR. The one was a sloppy attempt by an editor, who was doing 100's of edits and not paying attention to not do semi-automated edits on important articles. MVOO (talk) 21:30, 18 December 2010 (UTC)
The three diffs above are your edits and definitely represent disruptive editing. If you are going to WP:WIKILAWYER about it, you will not find this to be a receptive place. I am fully aware of the rules, and I have not suggested that you violated WP:3RR; I warned you against edit warring at Barack Obama. Clearly you have not read and absorbed the probation link above, nor have you read Wikipedia:General_sanctions#Sanctions_placed_by_the_Wikipedia_community. You may claim you are not edit warring, but continuing your disruptive editing will earn you a block. We cannot allow disruptive editing; it's bad for articles, bad for the community, and a time-waster.  Frank  |  talk  21:54, 18 December 2010 (UTC)

My edit are all top notch, not disruptive. To have a huge box trying to convince people Obama is a Christian is bad editing. To have no mention of Obama's don't ask repeal is also an omission. Please do not be threatening. That is very disruptive. MVOO (talk) 22:00, 18 December 2010 (UTC)

There is absolutely nothing wrong with a "self-published" source when you it's being used to document an individuals personal statements. If Obama self-identifies as a Christian, it's fine to identify him as a Christian, the same way we don't mention someone's sexuality unless they self-identify as such. OhNoitsJamie Talk 22:11, 18 December 2010 (UTC)
Also as others have (by their actions) made Obama's religion an issue then his views on his religion are relevant. It is also not threaetning to tell someone they have reached the 3RR limit and any more editds will be edit warring (which is only allowable to revert vandalism not just becasue you think you are right).Slatersteven (talk) 13:48, 19 December 2010 (UTC)


If you wish to make changes to policy you must first raise it on the apporpriate tallk page (such as [[1]]) and only make it when consensus has been achivede. Unilateral changes to policy will always (in practice) be reverted.Slatersteven (talk) 13:58, 19 December 2010 (UTC)
