I'm more of a lurker. If I feel like i can contribute I probably will but this place is very confusing. I created an account because of the controversy on the Rupert sheldrake article. I wanted to lend a voice to the page and want to be neutral. I'm not confident I will be much help but the page seems like it needs an outside POV.

I'm new don't bite me I'm already scared to do much of anything. Oh boy chicken again (talk) 05:52, 13 October 2013 (UTC)

Your editing experience[edit]

Regarding your statement here [1].

It would indeed be unfortunate if your first editing experience at Wikipedia happened to be in a very hot article in which you ended up getting burned turned you away from Wikipedia.

If the sock investigation turns out to conclude that you are an innocent party who happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, I do invite you to attempt to edit at articles that are not so contentious. Most of Wikipedia does not have the intensely opposed sides as do some of the articles that attract hard core FRINGE theory supporters. (although you may also want to steer away from articles about Israel/Palestine, The Troubles, Homeopathy, Scientology as other majorly hot and contentious areas of editing)

It is also important to remember that Wikipedia is WP:NOTNEWS and that writing an open source encyclopedia requires conventions and approaches that are VERY different from those of traditional journalism. It may take adjustments to be able to take off a professional journalism hat and put on a Wikipedia editor hat. -- TRPoD aka The Red Pen of Doom 00:26, 16 October 2013 (UTC)

Request reason:

I am unsure what I did wrong here. But I am not a sock puppet. I also do random IP based edits from home and work. Any help in this regard would be greatly appreciated.

Decline reason:

Procedural decline. Editor had two unblock requests open. I have given my reasons for declining the unblock request below, and closing this second outstanding unblock request. Singularity42 (talk) 19:43, 28 October 2013 (UTC)

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

Request reason:

I requested an unblock last week. I was then given another notice that I was blocked and nothing was reviewed. I am requesting that I have my account unblocked because I am not Tumbleman, nor was I sock puppeting for Tumbleman. I am in control of my account. I do not know what I have done wrong, and I would like to have my account reinstated. Oh boy chicken again (talk) 16:20, 24 October 2013 (UTC)

Decline reason:

You are not being completely forthcoming here.

First, the Checkuser information at the sockpuppet investigation clearly showed that this account was technically indistinguishable with other suspected sockpuppets. So even if this account was not a sockpuppet of the suspected master account, it was clearly involved in editing from multiple accounts.

Second, there was behavioural evidence connecting all the technically indistinguishable accounts (including this one) with the master account.

Third, the new Checkuser data (collected since the block first came into effect) now indicates that it is possible this account and the suspected master are technically connected.

All together, this account is most likely a sockpuppet. If I'm wrong, it is clearly involved in some type of editing from multiple accounts which is not being addressed in these unblock requests. Singularity42 (talk) 19:41, 28 October 2013 (UTC)

 CheckUser note: For the reviewing admin, checkuser now indicates that the accounts are quite  possibly related, not  Unlikely as was mentioned before. Reaper Eternal (talk) 19:23, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
