Good article candidacy review etiquette[edit]

It took me a bit of work, but I've been able to determine that on July 28, you failed tone cluster, which I had nominated for good article status. What you also failed to do was follow proper procedure. As is clearly stated, when returning a negative judgment, "Please leave a reason on the article's talk page." You didn't do that—indeed, you failed even to perform the courtesy of step 2 in the procedure, noting your judment with the appropriate tag—but I think I understand why. You went on quite a spree that day—failing six good article nominees in under an hour: in addition to "tone cluster," you struck down Duncan Shepherd, Amy Lee, Trobairitz, Daler Mehndi, and Gourd Dance in a span of 56 minutes. Impressive. I appreciate that in all the hurly-burly, you forgot to record in what way "tone cluster" fell short of your good article standards. Would you be kind enough to clue me in now? (If your answer has anything to do with the fact that some of the referenced books don't currently have the ISBN numbers you seem to feel are mandatory, you should know that the proper thing to do in that case is to put the nomination on hold with an explanation. If you have a problem with the reference style as a whole, please take a look at another, related article I am largely responsible for: Henry Cowell. This article, which uses the same reference style [and has not been ISBNed up], has been officially rated as A-Class.) Best regards, Dan—DCGeist 19:51, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

Re: Need help[edit]

If people see that you are a committed and helpful Wikipedia, they will generally come to trust you. Getting to know Wikipedians on IRC can also help. -- Where 15:38, 4 August 2006 (UTC)

Late reply[edit]

Still ill, but managed to struggle to my PC.

Thanks for your support and nomination, even though it probably won't pass this time!

RfA[edit]

It's not live per my discussion with buchanon. I think I'll formally decline tonight. alphaChimp laudare 20:00, 4 August 2006 (UTC)

I should ammend that comment. It's not live because we've decided to hold off the date. I have not yet had an opportunity to add my answers to the questions (nor to draft them). I'm not going to decline, I just want to wait a little bit longer. Oh, and I'm also waiting for some conoms that are still being written. I hope that makes things a little clearer. alphaChimp laudare 20:15, 4 August 2006 (UTC)

Barnstar[edit]

Resilient Barnstar.png The Resilient Barnstar
This Resilient Barnstar is awarded to Minun, a Wikipedian who repents of Wikicrimes of the past, growing in a positive way. Gray Porpoise 23:23, 4 August 2006 (UTC)

Advice[edit]

It's unfortunate that the arbitrators aren't noticing you've stopped. My advice would be to make plenty of good faith edits and demonstrate civility towards HighwayCello. You can start by leaving an olive branch and an apology on his/her talk page. Also, remember that both parties can comment on the RFAR. I'm not you and you're not me, but if I were in this situation, I would attempt to make a promise on the arbitration's "proposed decisions" or talk page, stating that no blocks/bans are necessary, and that you'll permanently stop incivility and sockpuppetry, and that if this promise is broken, you'll accept an extremely, longer-than-proposed, block/ban without further dispute. You're in control of your actions, but that's what I recommend. --Gray Porpoise 13:44, 5 August 2006 (UTC)

Stop[edit]

Do not give me anymore barnstars, I am not talking to the arbitrators. Highway Return to Oz... 14:34, 5 August 2006 (UTC)

To Minun: Bribery is not the best way to go.
To HighwayCello: Keep a cool head, and look at Minun's good contributions instead of just his bad. --Gray Porpoise 17:34, 5 August 2006 (UTC)

Suggestion[edit]

I noticed you asking somewhere how to get into the other editors good books again. One suggestion I would make would be to not use graphical images to indicate positive or negative votes in AfDs. They tend to annoy people. If you have any questions for me, don't hesitate to ask. ViridaeTalk 13:04, 6 August 2006 (UTC)

Aeon is back[edit]

Hey there Minun! I'm back! Æon Insane Ward 16:42, 6 August 2006 (UTC)

You ok? Æon Insane Ward 18:30, 6 August 2006 (UTC)

Tell me the whole prob. Æon Insane Ward 18:37, 6 August 2006 (UTC)

Ok Minun, first give me a link to any relivent page. And Second I'm glad that you admitted it. I can't make any promises on this but I will see what I can do. Æon Insane Ward 18:40, 6 August 2006 (UTC)

Ok I reviewed the ArbCom case on you. I posted my comments but it may be to late. I'm sorry man there is not much I can do Æon Insane Ward 19:04, 6 August 2006 (UTC)

ok just remember if you do get blocked (and from what I can see it will be at least 6 months) don't try to use a sockpuppet(or Anon account) to get around it. six months may seem like a long time but it will be over before you know it. Learn from waht happend and when your back be ready to edit the Wiki again. Æon Insane Ward 19:14, 6 August 2006 (UTC)

Thank you. What for exactly? I was actually thinking yesterday that I'm not making any really productive edits on the main space anymore, so I was surprised to get an award. Not to say I don't want it. I'm actually trying to decide where to start editing more though. I need to stop spending time debating on the anarchism talk pages since edits rarely happen there.

Wikipedia:Requests for arbitration/Iloveminun[edit]

{{Unblock|I stopped doing these things about two and a half (possibly three) weeks ago. Please read a couple of comments made at [[Wikipedia talk:Requests for arbitration/Iloveminun]], [[Wikipedia talk:Requests for arbitration/Iloveminun/Proposed decision]] and [[Wikipedia:Editor review/Minun]]. I am also appealing my ban for the reason given.}}

Unblock request denied; requests to appeal an ArbCom-imposed ban need to go through other channels. —Bunchofgrapes (talk) 15:10, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

Alright, thanks for the notice, what is the next process to appeal a ban? —Minun SpidermanReview Me 15:11, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

Feel free to appeal your ban via email to Jimbo Wales; I believe that's your only recourse. I don't think the argument that you stopped misbehaving once the Arbcom case was halfway through is going to appeal to anyone, however. However, no administrator will undo a block based on an Arbcom decision, so I'm removing your request. Your 1 year block is based on your 1 year ban: 6 months for attempting to destroy evidence, 3 months for personal attacks, 2 months for sockpuppetry, and 1 month for moving another user's page. The bans are to serve consecutively, as the Arbcom decision states. Since your ban is a general ban, the block is appropriate to enforce the ban. Mangojuicetalk 15:15, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

This doesn't mean that you can't view Wikipedia; only from editing them. You can still read articles, read Signposts, but you can't edit. --Bigtop 20:36, 16 August 2006 (UTC)

Esperanza-short.PNG

Minun, thanks for signing up for the Esperanza User Page Contest. The judges have received the fifteen entries, and are ready to start judging. The judges will take a week to complete the judging process, and they will contact all the participants when the judging is done.


Please drop by the contest page for contest updates and questions. Take care, and good luck! May the Force be with you! Shreshth91($ |-| ŗ 3 $ |-| ţ |-|) 08:12, 13 August 2006 (UTC)

August Esperanza Newsletter[edit]

Program Feature: To-Do List
The Esperanza To-Do List is a place where you may list any request, big or small, for assistance. If you need help with archiving your usertalk, for example, all you need to do is list it here and somebody will help you out. Likewise, if you need help with some area of editing on Wikipedia, list it here! Again, any matter, trivial or not, can be placed on this page. However, all matters listed on this page must not be of an argumentative nature. You do not need to be a member of Esperanza (or this program) to place or fulfill requests on this page. If you don't have any requests, consider coming by and fulfilling a few! This program has not been very active, but has lots of potential!
What's New?
In order to help proposed programs become specific enough to make into full-fledged programs, the In development section of the proposals page has been created. Proposals that are promising, but need to be organized in more detail are listed here. Please take a look at what is there, and help the proposals turn into programs.
To improve both the layout and text of the front page, in an attempt to clarify the image of Esperanza, the front page is going to have some redesigning take place. Please take your creative minds to Wikipedia:Esperanza/Front page redesign to brainstorm good ideas.
Many thanks to MiszaBot, courtesy of Misza13, for delivering the newsletter.
  1. In order to make sure all users who join Esperanza are welcomed, a list of volunteers who are willing to welcome new Esperanzians is at Wikipedia:Esperanza/Members#Esperanza_welcomers. Please add yourself if you are interested; we want to make sure all new Esperanza members are welcomed!
  2. The In development section of the proposals page has been created.
  3. Proposals page: Some proposals have been moved to the aforementioned "In development" section, some have been left as a proposal, and others have been archived. For those proposals that were a good idea but didn't necessarily constitute a program, General Esperanzial Actions has been created.
  4. Two small pieces of charter reform will be decided on in a straw poll at Wikipedia talk:Esperanza/Governance. One involves filling the position of any councillors who may leave, the other involves reforming the charter.
  5. Until cooperation with the Kindness Campaign is better defined, it remains as a proposed program.
  6. There is a page for discussing the front page redesign.
Signed...

Although having the newsletter appear on everyone's userpage is desired, this may not be ideal for everyone. If, in the future, you wish to receive a link to the newsletter, rather than the newsletter itself, you may add yourself to Wikipedia:Esperanza/Newsletter/Opt Out List.

Re: your private email[edit]

It's pointless for you to appeal by me via private email. I'm not the one taking the decisions, and I?m not the one callign the shots. Face the responsability of your actions. You hsouldn't have let things escalate so much, and now ArbCom has given a veredit. Nothing more to do, nothing more to see. Move on. -- Drini 17:10, 14 August 2006 (UTC)


Orphaned fair use image (Image:Charizard toy.jpg)[edit]

Warning sign This file may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:Charizard toy.jpg. I notice the 'image' page currently specifies that the image can be used under a fair use license. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any fair use images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BigDT 22:54, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

Catullus[edit]

I don't understand why you deleted the entire "See also" list in the Catullus article. It seemed like an excellent place to identify numbered poems with familiar names.

Blocked?[edit]

Hey Minun, I came here to ask a question, but I found that you were blocked, I myself, am under attack for the accusation that I am a sockpuppet/sockmaster. I am not. If you say that you are not; I belive you. If you are, I know that you are a friendly, nice, hard working productive person and I think it is terrible that Wikipedia puts such little value on good editors such as yourself.

Request reason:

Im not trying to get rid of the ban but just get rid of the block. Someone told me to discuss it on Wikipedia with the other arbitrators. (If I violate the ban which I won't, you can reblock me)

Decline reason:

So, if the arbitrators decide to un-ban you, they can unblock you. I don't see any reason you should be unblocked unless you wish to edit something, which you can't do, because you're banned! --Mak (talk) 16:25, 31 August 2006 (UTC)

For the final time, if you want to appeal the ban then you need to contact ARBCOM and ask them to review it. No one can overrule the arbcom ruling, so posting unblock templates here is nothing but disruptive and will lead to the protection of this page. --pgk 12:07, 16 September 2006 (UTC)

A comment made eight months before schedule[edit]

Good day to you, Minun.
I know this is being done far too early before you are unblocked, but I thought it wise to do it now, otherwise I'll forget it later.
I am an active minor Wikipedian on Wikipedia since April 2006. From editing a number of Pokémon articles, I met many Wikipedians: HighwayCello, SaturnYoshi, you, and many others.
Your behaviour on Wikipedia is, in my opinion, very fickle. One day good, next day bad; bribing Highway, then personally attacking him...you get the picture. That is not what we call the neutral point of view, you know. Being fickle is not the same as being neutral. A neutral is one who does not take sides but does not support either side either.
As sockpuppet Iloveminun, you have done me a great service by adding some fair use rationale to some of the images I uploaded. However, it would be...shall we say, a disappointment, that you would attack HighwayCello, the person who helped me start off editing in Wikipedia.
The reason why you were blocked was probably because you were disruptive in editing this encyclopedia and because you were attacking someone mercilessly. Under these circumstances, the Arbitration Committee found a suitable candidate for a 12-month ban.
Minun, the goal of Wikipedia is to create a free, accurate, comprehensive and up-to-date encyclopedia. This cannot be done on your own, nor can it be done with only Jimbo Wales. It can only be done with the help of everyone. Therefore, you must co-operate with everyone else. You will probably be attacked personally should you return. However, as long as you do not attack your attacker, you will have the support of all of us, HighwayCello and the ArbCom inclusive.
If you co-operate with other Wikipedians, you will never go wrong. Show restriant, and I hope that you will return when your ban has expired. -- Altiris Exeunt 12:41, 18 December 2006 (UTC)

July 2007 GAC backlog elimination drive[edit]

A new elimination drive of the backlog at Wikipedia:Good article candidates will take place from the month of July through August 12, 2007. There are currently about 130 articles that need to be reviewed right now. If you are interested in helping with the drive, then please visit Wikipedia:Good article candidates backlog elimination drive and record the articles that you have reviewed. Awards will be given based on the number of reviews completed. Since the potential amount of reviewers may significantly increase, please make sure to add :{{GAReview}} underneath the article you are reviewing to ensure that only one person is reviewing each article. Additionally, the GA criteria may have been modified since your last review, so look over the criteria again to help you to determine if a candidate is GA-worthy. If you have any questions about this drive or the review process, leave a message on the drive's talk page. Please help to eradicate the backlog to cut down on the waiting time for articles to be reviewed.

You[edit]

Will be free soon. See you then! Dfrg.msc 01:41, 20 July 2007 (UTC)

One more week left. I hope to see you back. hbdragon88 04:35, 8 August 2007 (UTC)

Hunh? One week left? That's fast. I hope you'll be here when the block expires. Altiris Exeunt 06:26, 8 August 2007 (UTC)

Five days, actually. 8 August to 13 August 2007. Man, I can't even fanthom a year of change. In that span, the tide against Pokémon significantly turned – AFDs were opened up aginst Whismur, Camerupt, Stunky, and various other Pokémon, the two FA articles were delisted, most of the GAs have suffered the same fate, the Pokémon Collaborative Project simply became WikiProject Pokémon, merging shifted from "evolutionary lines" to 25 large lists. HighwayCello hasn't edited since November. hbdragon88 06:59, 8 August 2007 (UTC)

Yeah...sometimes I still wished that Highway was here to see what's going on. With Minun returning, I hope that we can get some relief. By the way, I've fixed your comment ('variou sother' to 'various other'). I should probably be thinking twice ever since Ryulong told me off for editing Petri Krohn's comment on his RfC, but what the hell. -- Altiris Exeunt 07:58, 8 August 2007 (UTC)

I'm tempted to revert you and then the spacing mistake myself. <_<;; Seriously, though, it's fine. It was a spacing error. You didn't change the content of my message. As for Highway, I'm not sure how he would react to the cutting down of the Pokémon articles. HIs speciality was the species articles. He was the architect of the only two FAs the PCP ever had, which have since been deslisted, broken down, and merged. hbdragon88 08:11, 8 August 2007 (UTC)

What a bummer indeed. When I was helping out on Torchic half a year ago with the vandalism after it was featured on the front page, there were so many references that I lost count. Now they've reduced it to one single paragraph.
The delisting, breaking down and merging of the Pokémon articles caught me entirely by surprise. It was TTN who sent me a message to notify me of what was going on. -- Altiris Exeunt 11:34, 8 August 2007 (UTC)

  • Four days and counting, Minun! I sure hope to see you editing once that block expires. If you have any questions, or need any guidance, don't hesitate to ask via e-mail (my hard drive failed recently, and I won't be editing much until its replaced). Nwwaew (Talk Page) (Contribs) (E-mail me) 04:18, 9 August 2007 (UTC)

Update: You are going to be unbanned in 2 hours. Good luck! Anyways about the Pokemon Collaborative Project, the wikiproject is significantly overturn the past few months or so, and almost every Pokemon-related articles (including GA and FA) has been merged into long lists (which I find surprising). Missingno and 'M articles have been merged and eventually deleted due to original research and stuff. Hope you come back smoothly!--PrestonH 02:18, 13 August 2007 (UTC)

...nothing's changed...bummer... -- Altiris Exeunt 12:38, 13 August 2007 (UTC)

The ban's lifted, but still, there's no sign of anything... -- Altiris Exeunt 08:41, 14 August 2007 (UTC)

I've fired off an email via the "E-mail this user" feature; lets see what happens. Nwwaew (Talk Page) (Contribs) (E-mail me) 04:46, 15 August 2007 (UTC)
Oh? There's such a feature? Where is it? Might come in handy here and there... -- Altiris Exeunt 12:03, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

I've left a message on his personal wiki, which appears to be inactive, seeing that he has not replied to my comments here at all. -- Altiris Exeunt 08:07, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

What I think[edit]

I think Minun has given up since the ban is for a whole year. I'm not surprised. Maybe Minun has left since Minun found the ban unfair, and doesn't plan on returning. I understand that very well, I doubt I would have that patience. TheBlazikenMaster 12:43, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

Few would, now that you say it. [Insert possible profanity here]. -- Altiris Helios Exeunt 09:04, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

GA Sweeps invitation[edit]

Hello, I hope you are doing well. I am sending you this message since you are a member of the GA WikiProject. I would like to invite you to consider helping with the GA sweeps process. Sweeps helps to ensure that the oldest GAs still meet the criteria, and improve the quality of GAs overall. Unfortunately, last month only two articles were reviewed. This is definitely a low point after our peak at the beginning of the process when 163 articles were reviewed in September 2007. After nearly two years, the running total has just passed the 50% mark. In order to expediate the reviewing, several changes have been made to the process. A new worklist has been created, detailing which articles are left to review. All exempt and previously reviewed articles have already been removed from the list. Instead of reviewing by topic, you can consider picking and choosing whichever articles interest you.

We are always looking for new members to assist with the remaining articles, so if you are interested or know of anybody that can assist, please visit the GA sweeps page. In addition, for every member that reviews 100 articles or has a significant impact on the process, s/he will get an award when they reach that threshold. If only 14 editors achieve this feat starting now, we would be done with Sweeps! Of course, having more people reviewing less articles would be better for all involved, so please consider asking others to help out. Feel free to stop by and only review a few articles, something's better than nothing! Take a look at the list, and see what articles interest you. Let's work to complete Sweeps so that efforts can be fully focused on the backlog at GAN. If you have any questions about the process, reviewing, or need help with a particular article, please contact me or OhanaUnited and we'll be happy to help. --Happy editing!

Proposed deletion of Agharta (manga)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Agharta (manga) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Unnotable manga series that fails WP:BK and WP:N

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{dated prod}} will stop the Proposed Deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The Speedy Deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and Articles for Deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. -- Collectonian (talk · contribs) 04:01, 6 September 2009 (UTC)
