My talk[edit]

Rev del please. John from Idegon (talk) 00:37, 31 October 2018 (UTC)

My changes were right. Why did you removed them. Rushabh Bagmar (talk) 14:20, 17 November 2018 (UTC)


Hiya. Out of interest, how did you pick up that disruptive IP on List of philanthropists?? Best Alexandermcnabb (talk) 06:13, 31 October 2018 (UTC)

[1] :-) Materialscientist (talk) 06:59, 31 October 2018 (UTC)

Now there's a handy thing. I was wondering how an admin flew in from the sun and bombed him while I was still wagging my finger at him! Best Alexandermcnabb (talk) 08:13, 31 October 2018 (UTC)

Revoke talk access[edit]

Can you revoke Captain Blocker's talk access. Thanks. Home Lander (talk) 01:12, 1 November 2018 (UTC)

Honestly, some of you people take yourselves entirely too seriously.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Jrshooter (talkcontribs) 06:54, 2 November 2018 (UTC)
(by talk reader) @Jrshooter: I don't find your comment helpful. Perhaps you should avoid annoying the people trying to keep this project working. Chris Troutman (talk) 11:03, 2 November 2018 (UTC)

Help at WP:AIV[edit]

Materialscientist, I was really hoping, when I saw you were monitoring WP:AIV tonight, that you'd take on my report of Kyleparker2003. He's been adding false extra scores to several Dancing with the Stars articles, including Dancing with the Stars (U.S. season 3) most recently (one of five vandalized on November 5 alone). Adding a fourth judge's score has been happening with some frequently, I think Kyleparker2003's just the latest account, but I don't have the time to chase it down. It would really help if this account could be blocked from doing more damage; damage is all that they're doing. Thank you for your consideration. BlueMoonset (talk) 08:20, 5 November 2018 (UTC)

Thank you. Much appreciated. I'll let you know if they show up under another guise. BlueMoonset (talk) 08:27, 5 November 2018 (UTC)

Last edit on Sodapoppin[edit]

I might not be sure as to how Wiki works, but can I know the reasoning behind removing information about the person in the infobox in your latest edit to Sodapoppin, marked, I'm gonna assume it was a mistake as you were trying to remove vandalism as I see the same kind of information on an array of pages, without it being removed, thanks :) Jdreioee (talk) 16:03, 5 November 2018 (UTC)

Sorry, I was undoing an edit, started tidying, and forgot to write that up in the summary. Essential WP:BLP data (names, birth date, birth place, family relations, etc.) must be reliably sourced, or they may be removed on sight. For people like major politicians and sportsmen it is easy to find an official website confirming all that, and just add it as a reference instead of deleting data. It is not easy to quickly find reliable sources for some other people categories, like youtubers. Hence many newcoming editors keep changing all that, and we can't verify their edits.

Recent edits to Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child[edit]

Hello, I adapted that section from the article [[3]]. To me it's pretty much common knowledge. I've found many references (apart from the video recording of the performance). I've linked to the original interview quoted in the article. Thanks for letting me know to fix this. Stub Mandrel (talk) 17:10, 5 November 2018 (UTC)

UTRS Request #23168[edit]

Hi, I should welcome your comments on this appeal, please. Just Chilling (talk) 13:12, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

School block:[edit]

Thanks for dealing so promptly with my AIV report. But I'm a bit concerned that 6 months is overly stringent. Is there a reason for such a long period when it could impact on so many other users there? Regards, Nick Moyes (talk) 00:10, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

Nobody knows what would be a right duration for an IP block (except for a few obvious cases, and a few obvious mistakes that can be made). I act from a long experience of experimenting and analyzing feedback. Cheers. Materialscientist (talk) 00:18, 8 November 2018 (UTC)
OK, thanks for that answer. Nick Moyes (talk) 00:25, 8 November 2018 (UTC)
@Nick Moyes: Materialscientist is one of the most heavy handed admins on the entire encyclopedia, right up there with former admin A. B. in blocking IPs to infinity. If I say more I will end up violating WP:CIVIL. PCHS-NJROTC (Messages)Have a blessed day. 00:08, 12 November 2018 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) Nick Moyes from my perspective as a coordinator of WP:WPSCH, screwing around with Wikipeda often becomes part of the culture in a school. Materialscientest will certainly verify that. And six months is not a terribly long school block. From experience, if justified, the first school block is usually until the end of the school year. Subsequent ones are longer, sometimes much longer. I've seen them made recently for as long as 3 years (by another admin) and rumor has it there is a school IP that is blocked into the next century. Note I do not disapprove. John from Idegon (talk) 00:18, 12 November 2018 (UTC)
Um, no. IPs don't edit Wikipedia, people using them do, and while the idea of age requirements to become an editor is a valid one (after all, Gideons International requires members to be 21, and countless employers require applicants to be 18), it is a minority one, and considering consensus is to allow teenagers to run for adminship (see this), you and a handful of other people are going against community consensus. And I make no apology in saying that the whole lot of admins who are in favor of these long term blocks need to lose their toolset and be blocked for disruption. PCHS-NJROTC (Messages)Have a blessed day. 00:25, 12 November 2018 (UTC)
@John from Idegon: just out of curiousity, which cabal are the students you speak of part of? Clearly if screwing with Wikipedia becomes part of the culture in educational institutions there is some kind of cabal, right? Clearly this is a plot by George Soros, the Koch Brothers, or the New World Order, right? ;) PCHS-NJROTC (Messages)Have a blessed day. 01:25, 12 November 2018 (UTC)

Scout article naming[edit]

I've reverted your recent move-Scouting is always capitalized in this sense in English, per Scouting WPMOS-elks and lions are wild creatures, while Elks and Lions run charities; masons build structures, while Masons have secret handshakes, and so on... --Kintetsubuffalo (talk) 08:22, 9 November 2018 (UTC)

Ok, thanks. Materialscientist (talk) 08:33, 9 November 2018 (UTC)

A pie for you![edit]

A very beautiful Nectarine Pie.jpg Thanks for rolling back all the changes made by user So many vandalism in such a short time. SWP13 (talk) 17:36, 10 November 2018 (UTC)

Why in the world....[edit]

...would you use the school block template on, a wide range belonging to a cable company? PCHS-NJROTC (Messages)Have a blessed day. 23:35, 11 November 2018 (UTC) Actually, this is worthy of a trout. PCHS-NJROTC (Messages)Have a blessed day. 23:36, 11 November 2018 (UTC)

Of what? You have much experience with blocking Greenwood Village, CO, US, IPs lately? Materialscientist (talk) 23:42, 11 November 2018 (UTC)
The IPs I just ran through MaxMind from that range are geolocating to Hawaii and California, not Colorado. I'm not even contesting the block (though I probably wouldn't agree with it if I look through all of these edits), but using the school block template on IPs that aren't schools, colleges, or libraries looks ridiculous. PCHS-NJROTC (Messages)Have a blessed day. 00:01, 12 November 2018 (UTC)
Edits from this range are very characteristic of schools, but I've changed {{schoolblock}} to {{rangeblock}}. Yes, geolocation depends on the geolocating tool in this case - gives Greenwood Village, CO, and I see a lot of vandalism from IPs with that ID given by wmflabs, but tells that locations are scattered for different IPs in this /16 range. I guess wmflabs give the headquarters and actual IPs are scattered. Materialscientist (talk) 00:21, 12 November 2018 (UTC)
Thank you for that. The range belongs to Spectrum Business, which a lot of schools use, but remember that schools don't edit Wikipedia, students and staff within them do. Those same people have access to computers elsewhere, like Dunkin Donuts and Panera Bread, not to mention how ridiculous it has to look for that one person trying to edit from a law firm or a real estate office to see that red school house as the block reason. PCHS-NJROTC (Messages)Have a blessed day. 00:35, 12 November 2018 (UTC)


Please move Pomorski (surname) into Pomorski. It is an adjective; per WP:MOSDAB we don't disambiguate partial title matches. There is no Long Beach in Long page.Staszek Lem (talk) 20:56, 13 November 2018 (UTC)

Ok, thanks. Materialscientist (talk) 23:18, 13 November 2018 (UTC)

Article protection[edit]

Thank you for protecting the Noah Centineo article due to the ongoing vandalization by a single editor using multiple IPs and accounts. I just want to point out that the Noah Jupe article that I also mentioned in my request is still getting the same ongoing edits by that same editor as recently as today. It looks like they got a temporary block again on the IP address they used but it may also need protection. I'm not sure if you can do that still based off of my initial complaint or if a new complaint needs to be filed but it doesn't seem like the vandal is going to stop. Thanks again!
