Admin coaching[edit]

Hey, if you remember, you volunteered to admin coach me a while ago, and you answered a few questions I had. I am now interested in becoming an admin myself, and I was wondering what your thoughts would be on my candidacy. Thanks, -- Cielomobile talk / contribs 01:08, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

Alright, thanks for the advice; I'll act on it. -- Cielomobile talk / contribs 23:52, 14 May 2007 (UTC)

Hmm, I could swear that I just posted on your talk page with the following inquiry the other day, but it appears that I have not! Very strange. Anyway, I've been participating a bit more in the Wikipedia namespace and in policy discussions, occasionally checking the village pump and weighing in at the respective policy pages, in addition to XfD participation of course. What would your thoughts now be on my candidacy as an administrator? I was thinking that I'd nominate myself sometime soon if you think I'm ready. -- Cielomobile talk / contribs 09:26, 13 June 2007 (UTC)

Please Help[edit]

I am Darth Caton and I am new here. I would like to contribute to the Wikipedia Hip-hop article improvements. I also have been faced with a problem, please respond when you can.

Hello, I need to know how to join the Project: Hip-Hop. I have worked around hip-hop (currently an intern at XXL Mag) for almost all my life, and I have tons of info on rappers that no normal website can offer.

Happy 1st Edit day[edit]

Fair use rationale for Image:Tupac_-_Changes.ogg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading Image:Tupac_-_Changes.ogg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. 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 uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. ShakespeareFan00 07:50, 15 May 2007 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Apple TV[edit]

Mysekurity, can you please tell me what is confusing about the second paragraph of the lead of the Apple TV article - it simply explains when and who it was introduced by and when it started shipping.

Disappearance of Madeleine McCann[edit]

Agree with your remarks re the MWWS element. TBH, I am concerned about the lack of neutrality in this page generally. Consider the 'criticism' sections, as a case in point. A few timid criticisms of the parents are cited, but each is qualified by an explanation/rebuttal. Yet the Portuguese police are afforded no such right of reply. Interested in your thoughts.Snowbunni 21:15, 28 July 2007 (UTC)

To be quite honest, I have no real interest in the case, and I assume that is partly why I added that tag. I am in America, and I consider the case little more than an annoyance (I can only assume what it must be like for Brits.) I know little of the facts, nor do I care to. That said, I obviously hope the girl gets found safe and sound though at this point there is practically no chance of that happening. I think the reason that this case is still in the minds of people is due to MWWS, as it follows the symptoms almost to the letter. Then again, my personal beliefs hold no bearing on Wikipedia, but neither do TerrierFan's (or whatever his name is). I strongly wish there would be more criticism of why we are still discussing this case months after the initial disappearance. Then again, I wish more people would stop caring about Jon Benet Ramsey, but hell, that's just me. -Mysekurity 21:30, 28 July 2007 (UTC)

Request for admin coaching[edit]

Hi, I'm GorillaWarfare and am hoping to receive some coaching to become an admin. If you'd like to coach me, please leave a message on my talk page. You can see my edit count here but don't be surprised when you see that I have 25 edits. That is because I recently forgot the password to my old account, User:Theunicyclegirl. Here is my edit count from my old account. I almost have 2000 edits. I frequently revert vandalism by watching Lupin's filtered RCs. I also like to expand stubs, particularly those relating to cats or dogs. I am very good with user warning templates and speedy deletion templates. I sometimes respond on AFD. Thanks for considering me! --GorillaWarfare talk 16:53, 29 July 2007 (UTC)

Thanks a lot for the suggestion regarding the account problem. I'll definitely try it. Thanks for deciding to help me. I have two main questions:
  1. Do I look like I could pass RfA right now?
  2. If not or if you're unsure, what can I do to strengthen my request?

--GorillaWarfare talk 17:17, 29 July 2007 (UTC)

Erm, well, I hope this isn't too inconvenient, but I don't have email -- I much prefer this type of communication. --GorillaWarfare talk 17:33, 29 July 2007 (UTC)
I'm sorry, I have to go offline for a couple of hours. I will resume this conversation when I return. =D --GorillaWarfare talk 17:36, 29 July 2007 (UTC)
Hm, I honestly can't see what you would possibly need to tell me that you couldn't on English wiki. If you want you could always post it in a hidden message like <!--hi--> or something so it wouldn't be so visible. But perhaps I'm just being naïve. If it is absolutely positively necessary and completely unavoidable then I'll see what I can do... --GorillaWarfare talk 11:13, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

Clever waste of time[edit]

Hey there, I needed to ask you something about an article that was deleted. On March 12th, you deleted the Clever waste of time page because it was "possibly offensive and uncyclopedic." I've been asked by the site's creator to check into why it was deleted, as many of the people on that site worked on it andd felt it was a good page. In doing some research I've discovered that the Notpron page was deleted also, and since that is probably the biggest online puzzle ever, I would assume you are getting rid of individual puzzle pages. But I don't remember anything on the Clever waste of time page being offensive. Could youu just drop me a line and explain everything, please? Thanks a million! Kntrabssi 18:15, 4 August 2007 (UTC)

  • I see the confusion now! Yes, there was no spite nor malice intended, and really, all the site creator was concerned with was if someone was making offensve edits that represented the website. Thanks a ton for looking into it and clearing things up! Kntrabssi 22:49, 5 August 2007 (UTC)

Your recent edits[edit]

Hi, there. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. On many keyboards, the tilde is entered by holding the Shift key, and pressing the key with the tilde pictured. You may also click on the signature button Button sig2.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your name and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when. Thank you! --SineBot 07:02, 16 September 2007 (UTC)

Heh, annoying bots. I believe I have gotten three of those, from the old Hangermanbot. Anyway, just dropping by to check up on an old friend of mine. Prodego talk 00:26, 23 September 2007 (UTC)
Pretty good, been busy lately though. It feels funny to be classed among the more 'senior' admins now, there is a difference in what people think of you, and what you can get away with :). It is also odd watching all the 'new users' you have met become admins, makes me feel old. Anyway </nostalgia>. Let me know if you ever need anything, happy to oblige. Happy editing! Prodego talk 22:34, 23 September 2007 (UTC)
That would actually be interesting to see. It would be great to have a graph of the average lifespan of administrators over time (e.g. admins who came in 2001 lasted on average x years, admins from 2002 lasted y...), and average age of admins over time. Perhaps one of our statistics gurus could make it. Prodego talk 01:43, 24 September 2007 (UTC)

Responce[edit]

Thats not an opinion my friend, its a fact, there are more iTunes users out there then residents of the U.S, and go ahead, I finished transwiking one ages ago and iTunes Version History is here to stay from what I can see. If you have nothing better to do with your time then by all means, you go have fun.

"and hopefully learn to contribute positively to the encyclopedia in the future. dont dare attack my edits like that again, or we have trouble. I have never negativly contributed to this wiki.

My opinions are my own, I'll bring what opions I like onto Wikipedia, thats the point of a community. But as said, the constitution comment was no such thing.

Also, I dont archive unfinished descussions, I have no idea where you got that idea.
Ferdia O'Brien The Archiver, Reformatter And Vandal Watchman (Talk) 11:24, 25 September 2007 (UTC)

I take it I've hit a nerve. Spelling and grammatical errors aside, the threat of "trouble" if I continue to disagree with your contributions is quite disturbing in its own way. It is clear you have no respect for policy, nor other users who happen to disagree with you. And to say that iTunes "effects [sic] more people" than the US constitutional amendments is not only wrong, it's also incredibly offensive. As for the comment on archiving, please follow the guidelines set at Help:Archiving a talk page. Archiving unfinished (or recently finished discussions) for no other purpose than to move them to a subpage tends to imply the user has something to cover-up, and goes against the open spirit of Wikipedia. Thanks for your understanding, Mysekurity 19:58, 25 September 2007 (UTC)
No nerve hit, and grammatical mistakes were due to the fact that it doesn't bother me in the slightest, and I didn't put much care into the responce. The trouble I refered to is one you know well, policys and guidelines, I think you'll find personal attacks is right up there, and saying I contributed negatively is one of them. I have respect for those who disagree with me, so long as they can debate they point, which no one did on the iTunes page. The comment I made isnt untrue, iTunes has millions of users world-wide, the U.S constitution affects a single country. As for archiving, I don't see how it emplys I have something to hide, as the archive is in full view. I do it for cleanlyness sakes.
Ferdia O'Brien The Archiver, Reformatter And Vandal Watchman (Talk) 21:06, 25 September 2007 (UTC)
I specifically refrained from attacking you personally. That said, the grammatical and spelling errors of which I wrote referred not just to this discussion, but in general (I take it you use Firefox--did you know version 2 and up have an automatic spellcheck feature?). Even the most forgiving estimates of iTunes users place the figure at around 200 million. Apple itself says it has 10 million users. By contrast, the United States has 300 million people, and a far greater number than that are affected by the Amendments. Josephberte and I were very accommodating in offering a compromise, and offered points that you either ignored, or answered with a completely irrelevant thought. Looking over your archive, I can see that this isn't the first time you've had trouble with other users. This is your last chance to make right and contribute positively before you are disallowed from editing. -Mysekurity 21:27, 25 September 2007 (UTC)
I never once ignored anyones points in that discussion, in fact I made a point to respond to everything relevant said. And I'm sorry but I'm not going to be disallowed from editing, so don't bother thowing around such an idle threat, even you admins have to justify your actions. I repeat, I have never negatively contributed to this wiki. I don't see the point of carrying on the iTunes/Constitution argument as its purpose is now served. And my grammer is just fine "in general". As for your compromise, that went against the exact point I was arguing, so why would I have accepted it?

Redirect of Barry Finkle[edit]

Information icon.svg
Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Barry Finkle, by another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Barry Finkle is a redirect to a non-existent page (CSD R1).

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Barry Finkle, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Feel free to contact the bot operator if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot, bearing in mind that this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion; it does not perform any nominations or deletions itself.

AfD nomination of B3D[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg
An editor has nominated B3D, an article on which you have worked or that you created, for deletion. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/B3D and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 02:44, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Please visit Wikipedia:Admin coaching/Status to update your status and move your entry to the Active list. Also, please remember to update your capacity (5th table variable) in the form of a fraction (eg. 2/3 means you are currently coaching 2 students, and could accept 1 more student). Thank you.

Speedy deletion of Image:Abílio Manuel Guerra Junqueiro.jpeg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg
A tag has been placed on Image:Abílio Manuel Guerra Junqueiro.jpeg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section I8 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is available as a bit-for-bit identical copy on the Wikimedia Commons under the same name, or all references to the image on Wikipedia have been updated to point to the title used at Commons.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on [[ Talk:Image:Abílio Manuel Guerra Junqueiro.jpeg|the talk page]] explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you. Sdrtirs (talk) 22:22, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

Nomination of The ABC of Sex Education for Trainables for deletion[edit]

The article The ABC of Sex Education for Trainables is being discussed concerning whether it is suitable for inclusion as an article according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/The ABC of Sex Education for Trainables until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on good quality evidence, and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion template from the top of the article. Schmidt, MICHAEL Q. 06:39, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

Notification of pending suspension of administrative permissions due to inactivity[edit]

Following a community discussion in June 2011, consensus was reached to provisionally suspend the administrative permissions of users who have been inactive for one year (i.e. administrators who have not made any edits or logged actions in over one year). As a result of this discussion, your administrative permissions will be removed pending your return if you do not return to activity within the next month. If you wish to have these permissions reinstated should this occur, please post to the Wikipedia:Bureaucrats' noticeboard and the userright will be restored per the re-sysopping process (i.e., as long as the attending bureaucrats are reasonably satisfied that your account has not been compromised and that your inactivity did not have the effect of evading scrutiny of any actions which might have led to sanctions). This removal of access is procedural only, and not intended to reflect negatively upon you in any way. We wish you the best in future endeavors, and thank you for your past administrative efforts.

Delivered by MessageDeliveryBot on behalf of Xeno (talk) at 12:40, 1 November 2011 (UTC).

I assume by your recent edit (prodding an article) that you do not want your administrator permissions to lapse. Right now, the bot that tracks inactivity does not look for deleted edits, so could you make an edit that won't eventually be deleted? (Like replying to me to say 'ok' =) –xenotalk 22:53, 14 November 2011 (UTC)

MSU Interview[edit]

Dear Mysekurity,

My name is Jonathan Obar user:Jaobar, I'm a professor in the College of Communication Arts and Sciences at Michigan State University and a Teaching Fellow with the Wikimedia Foundation's Education Program. This semester I've been running a little experiment at MSU, a class where we teach students about becoming Wikipedia administrators. Not a lot is known about your community, and our students (who are fascinated by wiki-culture by the way!) want to learn how you do what you do, and why you do it. A while back I proposed this idea (the class) to the communityHERE, where it was met mainly with positive feedback. Anyhow, I'd like my students to speak with a few administrators to get a sense of admin experiences, training, motivations, likes, dislikes, etc. We were wondering if you'd be interested in speaking with one of our students.


So a few things about the interviews:

  • Interviews will last between 15 and 30 minutes.
  • Interviews can be conducted over skype (preferred), IRC or email. (You choose the form of communication based upon your comfort level, time, etc.)
  • All interviews will be completely anonymous, meaning that you (real name and/or pseudonym) will never be identified in any of our materials, unless you give the interviewer permission to do so.
  • All interviews will be completely voluntary. You are under no obligation to say yes to an interview, and can say no and stop or leave the interview at any time.
  • The entire interview process is being overseen by MSU's institutional review board (ethics review). This means that all questions have been approved by the university and all students have been trained how to conduct interviews ethically and properly.


Bottom line is that we really need your help, and would really appreciate the opportunity to speak with you. If interested, please send me an email at obar@msu.edu (to maintain anonymity) and I will add your name to my offline contact list. If you feel comfortable doing so, you can post your nameHERE instead.

If you have questions or concerns at any time, feel free to email me at obar@msu.edu. I will be more than happy to speak with you.

Thanks in advance for your help. We have a lot to learn from you.

Sincerely,

Jonathan Obar --Jaobar (talk) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.11.206.39 (talk) 03:25, 21 February 2012 (UTC)

New England Wikimedians would like to invite you to the April 2014 meeting, which will be a small-scale meetup of all interested Wikimedians from the New England area. We will socialize, review regional events from the beginning of the year, look ahead to regional events of 2014, and discuss other things of interest to the group. Be sure to RSVP here if you're interested.

Also, if you haven't done so already, please consider signing up for our mailing list and connect with us on Facebook and Twitter.

We hope to see you there!

As you may have already heard, the Wikipedia community lost an invaluable member of the community last month. Adrianne Wadewitz was a feminist scholar of 18th-Century British literature, and a prolific editor of the site. As part of a worldwide series of tributes, New England Wikimedians, in conjunction with local institutions of higher learning, have created three edit-a-thons that will be occurring in May and June. The events are as follows:

We hope that you will be able to join us, whether you are an experienced editor or are using Wikipedia for the first time.

Notification of pending suspension of administrative permissions due to inactivity[edit]

Information icon Following a community discussion in June 2011, consensus was reached to provisionally suspend the administrative permissions of users who have been inactive for one year (i.e. administrators who have not made any edits or logged actions in over one year). As a result of this discussion, your administrative permissions will be removed pending your return if you do not return to activity within the next month. If you wish to have these permissions reinstated should this occur, please post to the Wikipedia:Bureaucrats' noticeboard and the userright will be restored per the re-sysopping process (i.e. as long as the attending bureaucrats are reasonably satisfied that your account has not been compromised, that your inactivity did not have the effect of evading scrutiny of any actions which might have led to sanctions, and that you have not been inactive for a three-year period of time). If you remain inactive for a three-year period of time, including the present year you have been inactive, you will need to request reinstatement at WP:RFA. This removal of access is procedural only, and not intended to reflect negatively upon you in any way. We wish you the best in future endeavors, and thank you for your past administrative efforts.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse.
