Re the comment you made here, the reason the username is inappropriate is WP:IMPERSONATE: we have no way of knowing whether the operator of the account is actually the person or not, especially because it's a politician (better known and with a potential for libel problems). I've closed it, though, pending discussion either with the user or on a relevant noticeboard (COIN). Thanks, Ansh666 18:26, 20 November 2013 (UTC)

Thanks; yes, I agree that there is a possible argument with regard to impersonation (though I think in this case it would be weak), but the reporting user was appealing to COI/promotional editing as grounds for a username violation, which of course is incorrect, so that's what I was responding to.

The Wikipedia Library Survey[edit]

As a subscriber to one of The Wikipedia Library's programs, we'd like to hear your thoughts about future donations and project activities in this brief survey. Thanks and cheers, Ocaasi t | c 15:13, 9 December 2013 (UTC)

User talk:Jaquarpvtltd[edit]

I undid your edit to User talk:Jaquarpvtltd. There are two categories placed by Template:Uw-coi-username which need to be kept until the user is blocked, the COI is found to be non-existent or resolved, or the editor appears to have quit editing. If the editor quits editing for several weeks, both categories can be removed together. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs) 19:23, 18 March 2014 (UTC)

The category I removed, CAT:UAA, is used for tracking username violations, not conflict of interest violations. Of course, these issues are similar, but different. It has been standard practice for years to remove CAT:UAA from a user talk page if the editor has ceased editing for seven or more days, as it states on CAT:UAA. I removed the category from User talk:Jaquarpvtltd seven days after his/her last edit. NTox · talk 19:43, 18 March 2014 (UTC)
3/19 Note: I clean up CAT:UAA quite regularly and had initially intended not to touch User talk:Jaquarpvtltd while I wait for your response. I have just noticed that I have unwittingly passed through it. Did not mean to "re-revert" you. NTox · talk 20:43, 19 March 2014 (UTC)
This is okay, I should've re-read the guidelines before putting up my initial message and doing my initial change to that user talk page. I mistakenly believed the cutoff time was much longer than 7 days without editing for that particular category. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs) 20:49, 19 March 2014 (UTC)

Richard Hoagland RfC[edit]

I noticed you've edited the page before. Please chime in on a critical question. Talk:Richard C. Hoagland/Archive 3#RfC: Should article be trimmed down Thanks!!! :) Nasa-verve (talk) 19:32, 22 May 2014 (UTC)

Talk:CAT:ENFORCEMENT listed at Redirects for discussion[edit]


An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect Talk:CAT:ENFORCEMENT. Since you had some involvement with the Talk:CAT:ENFORCEMENT redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion if you have not already done so. John Vandenberg (chat) 14:47, 30 September 2014 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

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.

Possible removal of AWB access due to inactivity[edit]

Hello! There is currently a request for approval of a bot to manage the AutoWikiBrowser CheckPage by removing inactive users, among other tasks. You are being contacted because you may qualify as an inactive user of AWB. First, if you have any input on the proposed bot task, please feel free to comment at the BRFA. Should the bot task be approved, your access to AWB may be uncontroversially removed if you do not resume editing within a week's time. This is purely for routine maintenance of the CheckPage, and is not indicative of wrongdoing on your part. You will be able regain access at any time by simply requesting it at WP:PERM/AWB. Thank you! MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 23:36, 8 November 2016 (UTC)
