Window managers[edit]

If you have the time, try to find to find articles about the window managers you think should be kept. Look at the AfD for wmii to see what kind of sources are needed. There is a fair amount of Linux press these days that qualifies as WP:RS. Pcap ping 05:55, 23 February 2010 (UTC)

Username concern[edit]

Start hand.svg Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. I noticed that your username, Gkrellm, may not meet Wikipedia's username policy because usernames which are the same as a particular product, including Free Software, are not permitted. Please see WP:ORGNAME and Wikipedia talk:Username policy#Applicability of WP:ORGNAME to non-commercial products for further details. If you believe that your username does not violate our policy, please leave a note here explaining why. As an alternative, you may file for a change of username, or you may simply create a new account and use that for editing. Thank you. [[|Mclaudt]] —Psychonaut (talk) 09:22, 23 February 2010 (UTC)

Personal attacks and incivility[edit]

Please stop. If you continue to make personal attacks on other people as you did at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Dwm, you will be blocked for disruption. Comment on content, not on other contributors or people. Thank you. —Psychonaut (talk) 09:34, 23 February 2010 (UTC)

Canvassing[edit]

Information.svg Hello. It appears that you have been canvassing—leaving messages on others' talk pages to notify them of an ongoing community decision, debate, or vote. While friendly notices are allowed, they should be limited and nonpartisan in distribution and should reflect a neutral point of view. Please do not post notices which are indiscriminately cross-posted, which espouse a certain point of view or side of a debate, or which are selectively sent only to those who are believed to hold the same opinion as you. Remember to respect Wikipedia's principle of consensus-building by allowing decisions to reflect the prevailing opinion among the community at large. —Psychonaut (talk) 11:55, 23 February 2010 (UTC)

AfD[edit]

Why do you think that a bunch of blogs and a Youtube video show notability? Joe Chill (talk) 17:43, 28 February 2010 (UTC)

  • First of all, there were FreeX article, it is reliable source. Second, FOSS needs its own guideline as shown in many discussions and opinions on specialists, no incompetent perverts that jack off on obsolete rules. Notability of FOSS can be seen from overall popularity and it is obvious for each IT-spec. FOSS popularity lives in the world of 0 and 1 and has no need to be proven on paper in the age of Internet. Also it has giant verifiability due to open source, so there is no need to insist on classical representation of reliable source as some glossy magazine.

WP:ANI[edit]

Please be advised that a discussion has been started on Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents#User:Mclaudt about your activities. —Psychonaut (talk) 17:58, 28 February 2010 (UTC)

Request reason:

Please unblock me. I have no time no intention for canvassing or train-wrecking Linux software discussions. I'm getting PhD in quantum chemistry and I want to be really useful for Wikipedia in that field. Also I'm happy to be an active Wikipedia donator because I sincerely support ideas that Wikipedia declares. Thanks.

Decline reason:

You cannot be unblocked unless a community discussion overturns your ban.  Sandstein  21:59, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first and 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.

Because you are community banned, no one administrator should lift this block- it should be lifted only by community consensus. I've put a note at the administrators' noticeboard to see if there is consensus for lifting this ban. Personally, I don't love the idea that you should be unblocked because you are now too busy to be disruptive- after all, you might get less busy someday. But I don't know the context of this ban, either, so I'm holding off on weighing in until I learn more. -FisherQueen (talk · contribs) 20:50, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

Proposal[edit]

I am willing to unblock you. However, due to the previous problems, I'm only comfortable doing so if you are willing to agree to the following restrictions:

  • A topic ban on anything Linux-related, or indeed free software-related. Broadly construed, i.e. no talk page comments, no pushing the envelope to see what you can get away with, no vandalism reverts on free software pages. Nothing. You say you'd like to contribute to Chemistry-related areas, so this shouldn't be a problem.
  • Good behavior in whatever subjects you do edit in; don't dive right back into battleground mode, just with a different topic. This isn't a fresh start, it's a last chance.
  • An agreement (which I believe you made above) not to canvass on- or off-wiki on any subject, not just free software. Ever.
  • An agreement to bend over backwards to avoid insulting other editors, and an acknowledgment that you understand you will not have much slack in this area before being reblocked.
  • The topic ban can be reviewed at WP:ANI in 6 months.

If you're willing to agree to this, let me know. If it seems too patronizing, or unfair, then decline, and we'll see what direction the ANI thread takes; I suppose it's possible I'm being too harsh. --Floquenbeam (talk) 05:10, 2 December 2010 (UTC)

OK, based on your acceptance of these points here, and a weak but detectable consensus at ANI, I'm unblocking you. In addition, you need to limit yourself to one account; your use of User:Gkrellm while blocked is not wise, but overlook-able since no harm was done. I'm going to block the Gkrellm account, but that should not affect your ability to edit on this account.

While you may think the topic ban is harsh, please take it seriously; the subject matter caused you quite a bit of difficulty in the past. The 6 month minimum is an integral part of making sure things are going to work this time.

Welcome back. --Floquenbeam (talk) 13:13, 2 December 2010 (UTC)
