{{Shared IP edu test}}[edit]

It states that the school is interested in being contacted in case of vandalism. Unless you (the editor adding the template) has contacted the school, this is a BLP violation. — Arthur Rubin (talk) 02:18, 14 January 2013 (UTC)

WikiProject:REHAB update[edit]

You signed up for WikiProject User Rehab


Hi there, I'm RDN1F. It's come to my attention that you've signed up for WikiProject Rehab, but since that time the project has retired. I've decided to take it upon myself to rejuvenate the project - but I could do with your help. If you are still willing to help mentor (or even give me a hand in bringing this project back!) leave a message on my talk page

Enbridge COIN[edit]

Hi, I have started a conflict of interest investigation on IP 161.141.1.1 as that IP is owned by Enbridge corporation and has been doing a lot of pro-Enbridge edits to the Enbridge article. As you have also contributed to that article I thought you might be interested to have a look. Cheers, Djapa Owen (talk) 16:20, 8 November 2013 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:PGMS2.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:PGMS2.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' 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 "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 09:33, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

A question[edit]

How can you be an editor on Conservapedia and wikipedia? They're like polar opposites. Besides Rationalwiki. Fungal vexation (talk) 15:10, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

(Assuming good faith) No they're not. Wikipedia follows a neutral point of view whereas Conservapedia follows a conservative POV. PCHS-NJROTC (Messages) 15:13, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

Please, spare me[edit]

Your philosophical lectures at WP:AN/I are not helpful. Please do not patronise, nor use such condescending language as "kiss and make up". We aren't children here. Is that how you speak in your place of work? RGloucester 03:45, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

This didn't need to come here; it could have stayed at the AN/I page, but whatever. It was only a suggestion; you may take it with a grain of salt if you so choose. People in my place of work don't bicker with each other, undo each other's work over and over again, and go to manager both accusing each other of being wrong or being "Marxist propaganda mongerers" and "vandals," I had my fill of that in middle school. PCHS-NJROTC (Messages) 04:00, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
I was merely giving you a recommendation. It is quite right that I did none of those things. Instead, they have been done by this fellow, and I'm seeking redress. At my place of work, people are serious, they take themselves seriously, and they refrain from childish language. RGloucester 04:09, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
At my place of work, people act as the professionals that we are and take our lack of childishness beyond language. Seriously though, what I see at the surface here is two people who think they're right, and instead of trying to reach some sort of agreement like adults or handling things properly, they start playing tug-o-war with an article a page as a rope and then proceed to accuse each other of personal attacks and vandalism at AN/I. PCHS-NJROTC (Messages) 04:17, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
Then you are not seeing very far. This is part of a protracted struggle over the course of months from disruptive editors in Ukraine crisis-related topics, where I do most of my editing at present. A couple of days ago I was accused of being part of a pro-Ukrainian cabal. Now I'm a pro-Russian Marxist covering up a crime equivalent of the Holocaust. I've seen it all, at this point, and I'm not going to take nonsense any longer. I have better things to do. Farewell! RGloucester 04:26, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────NJROTC, I've just come across the AN/I you felt you had enough of a grasp of to involve yourself in. Not only was your advice unconstructive, you managed to be WP:UNCIVIL towards the editor filing the complaint and, quite evidently, didn't bother to check the diffs properly, or even acquaint yourself with the content in dispute. Consequently, the ANI was closed by the reporting editor rather than having to face any more condescending suggestions and heckling from you. Only one administrator had the chance to weigh in, and other involved editors were denied the opportunity to discuss the new user's disruptive behaviour.

Considering that you don't edit in any controversial areas of Wikipedia, and that you insinuated yourself into an ANI regarding a new contributor to a WP:ARBEE area, I can't help but find myself wondering how you feel you are qualified to take over the incident report and harass the reporter. Essentially, you disrupted the process, did not assume good faith, and turned it into your personal battleground. --Iryna Harpy (talk) 01:07, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

I fail to see how choosing not to take sides in the content dispute (policy dispute, which ever you prefer to call it) constitutes assuming bad faith (I'm sure they both had good intentions), and I fail to see how suggesting the two editors discuss the matter rather than come to AN/I to try and get each other blocked/banned/topic banned/etc was disruptive, but I don't see the sense in arguing about it. Perhaps my choice of words could have been better, but I still don't see how anything I posted was WP:UNCIVIL towards any particular user. As for WP:BATTLEGROUND, I don't see it. What I see is a content dispute that made its way over to dispute resolution, which, IMO, is the proper place for it (either there or ArbCom, since ArbCom is involved in the matter). At any rate, it's history now. I see there's another thread over at AN/I now. PCHS-NJROTC (Messages) 17:19, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

Hi User:PCHS-NJROTC. Would you mind if I delete User:PCHS-NJROTC/EDU? I know you mean well so please don't take offense. However, school IP Talk pages are highly visible and user warnings should be refer to official policies and not to subjective commentary. Alternately you can add Template:Essay at the top and stop adding it to user talk pages. Thanks.– Gilliam (talk) 07:45, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
User:Beach drifter is at it again, I see. Yes, this is indeed what happens when someone edits as an anon to do his dirty work and then gets away with it (and I fully believe the only reason he took responsibility for the IP's actions is because he knew it wouldn't end well if he didn't and a checkuser had to get involved). But that's ancient history now. That template was a WP:BOLD move, stating the truth, and I personally don't see anything wrong (or against policy) with it. Although school IP talk pages may be seen by thousands of users, I wouldn't consider them highly visible as compared with other pages on Wikipedia, some of which are seen by millions of people (the templates on school IP talk pages like {{Shared IP edu}} are a different story). While WP:OTHERSTUFF isn't the best argument, well, it does. I also distinctly remember another template that said something like "Why do you vandalize the wiki? You're just going to get your school blocked." But, if you don't like it, I'm not going to stop you from deleting it; it's not worth an edit war. PCHS-NJROTC (Messages) 14:18, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
By the way, I did link to policy in that template, both the vandalism policy and the blocking policy. Thing is, I would have linked to an official policy for dealing with schools, but there is no such policy. The only other appropriate policy I can think of to link to is WP:AGF, and if anyone thinks that's being actively followed for school IPs, they are delusional (the attitude towards school IPs by admins is that all schools are filled with immature students and therefore need to be blocked; indeed kids will be kids and they're not completely wrong, but that's still not following assume good faith). PCHS-NJROTC (Messages) 14:36, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
See WP:SCHOOLBAN. Perhaps a single link to that page would give student vandals an idea of the consequences for their actions.– Gilliam (talk) 00:31, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
That page refers to a very specific type of problem, while those kind of IPs do much more than just that. I think linking to that may discourage good faith editors from editing their schools' articles as well, and there are a lot of good faith edits to school articles that come from school IPs.

RE: 2014–15 Football League Championship[edit]

Hey man - yeah my edit was fine to remove. Would you mind reverting the 2014–15 Football League Championship page to the 17:03 version? Someone added an entry to one of the tables on the page which caused a massive formatting issue with everything below. My "test" was me fumbling around seeing if something would work to fix it.

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Killing of Cecil the lion[edit]

I appreciate the nomination--I was waiting for that article to be created and for a storm like this to kick up. But given the outrage and the coverage, there was no way in which this was ever going to go toward delete: Jesus himself couldn't have pulled that off in the current atmosphere.

Clarification[edit]

Hello from Portugal,

about this comment which you removed (please see here https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk:84.90.219.128&diff=697904018&oldid=697666143), just to notify you that I responded in kind, albeit it less aggressively. This Colombian punk has been subjecting me to vitriolic abuse for two years for a mere difference of opinions on the Quique Sánchez Flores article. Back in the day, several people agreed with my approach and the article had one name, now, after further new evidence, most people agree with his approach, cool with me for I know how WP works after nine years here.

But this will not be tolerated. Remove my message too if you will, I have vented all I had to vent. Happy 2016 --84.90.219.128 (talk) 18:46, 2 January 2016 (UTC)

Your username[edit]

I almost hate to bring this up since you've had your current username for almost 10 years now, but I'm worried that your username might violate the prohibition in WP:username policy on usernames that represent the name of a group or organization (in this case, the Port Charlotte High School Naval Junior Reserve Officers Training Corp). Your previous username, GO-PCHS-NJROTC, seems okay (as per the "WidgetFan87" example in WP:ISU), but your current username seems to be implying shared use. You might want to consider changing it, especially if you plan on seeking administrative privileges as you state on your user page. --Ahecht (TALK

@Ahecht: Fair enough. How about PCHS-NJROTC Alumni? Or DMorris-PCHS-NJROTC? Go-PCHS-NJROTC sounds too much like something a cheerleader would say. I knew each and every one of the cheerleaders on the squad at my school and they were sweet girls, but it seems more of them than not vandalize Wikipedia vs contribute, so I don't want to look like a cheerleader.

Possibly helpful[edit]

Hi PCHS, I saw your post about open proxy check and did some searching. The only other IP used in the /24 range has been this one. I know the range is much bigger but this might point to your guy as this post combined with this block log indicates that it is the editor for this SPI case. I don't know if this matches to the person giving you problems but it gives you a direction to look. Also, you may try looking at the larger /16 range to see if you spot anything.

Regarding that discussion, since responding there might strike you as bludgeoning...
I've never read RationalWiki and I don't see how anything I said could be said to represent "fondness". So I'll stick with my idea that I've been misinterpreted. — jmcgnh(talk) (contribs) 13:04, 15 August 2017 (UTC)
I could be thinking of someone else, but today I have not the time nor the interest to hunt down who said what I was thinking you said, so you win. To be blunt, I really don't care about the petty details of who said what or even winning, I care about maintaining a quality encyclopedia, which is what WP:EL is designed to do (the WHOLE policy, which R-W fails in spirit, IMO). I try to be nice to him (and I know he can read this), but I honestly feel this is all about FCP wanting to "win", and that's not what WP is for. Have a nice rest of your day. PCHS-NJROTC (Messages)Have a blessed day. 13:21, 15 August 2017 (UTC)

You have repeatedly attacked my character and my intentions[edit]

I've made 5 edits to Talk:Vaginal steaming. You've made 33. I've made 1 edit to WP:ELN. You've made 8. Yet you repeatedly accuse me of WP:BLUDGEON.

I enacted your suggestion to move discussion to WP:ELN. Yet you repeatedly accuse me of WP:WIN.

I've added criticism (and pushed to add more) to RationalWiki. I've disclosed my COI on every post. Yet you repeatedly accuse me of WP:SPAMMER & WP:PROMOTION and threaten me with WP:COIN & WP:ANI.

I had hoped the discussion on Talk:Vaginal steaming would yield consensus on RW's status under WP:ELNO, WP:ELYES, WP:ELMAYBE. Instead it is bogged down with your back-and-forth and your incessant links to WP policy & "embarassing" RW pages.

I believe you are either [1] blinded by your bias or [2] acting in bad faith. I have resolved not to further interact with you.

Have a nice day. FuzzyCatPotato (talk) 16:23, 15 August 2017 (UTC):

I have to agree that you personally have not been committing WP:BLUDGEON, but others have (who may not even be Rat-Wikians, but for whatever reason have strong opinions on the matter). I'm sorry to hear that dealing with shenanigans from that site pouring over into Wikipedia for the past eight years (before I even knew that Conservapedia or Rational-Wiki even existed) makes me a biased person, but I care too much for the integrity of the encyclopedia to watch this kind of controversy happen over and over again.

Apologies for last night[edit]

I had a friend over last night and briefly showed them the wiki-drama. They must've [1] added the "trolling and then [2] got cold feet and undone the edits. I didn't even notice until this morning. I don't know why I'd troll you -- you'd just use the trolling as evidence against me. (I also don't know why I'd troll myself.) I genuinely wish to wash my hands of you, politely. FuzzyCatPotato (talk) 19:41, 16 August 2017 (UTC)

I'm sure that's also what happened when you added the link to your own website after a previous discussion had just concluded that your links don't belong on Wikipedia, right? PCHS-NJROTC (Messages)Have a blessed day. 21:16, 16 August 2017 (UTC)
No. I added that link because I thought it was relevant. You seem to ignore that Talk:Michel_Chossudovsky#RationalWiki_link was settled because of WP:BLPEL rules, rather than WP:EL rules. I cannot imagine why. FuzzyCatPotato (talk) 22:07, 16 August 2017 (UTC)

Could you help update some BLPs?[edit]

Hey PCHS, I'm looking for some help updating articles for Craig B. Thompson, José Baselga, and Joan Massagué Solé, who are all executives at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. The articles' overall quality was a little lacking, so I've been working on adding content and supporting it with better references. I saw you're a member of WP:HOSPITAL and I was wondering if you could check out some of my suggestions, even if the articles are somewhat tangentially related. I've posted on their respective talk pages, as well as the WP:ACADEMICS talk page, but I've been having trouble getting any kind of feedback from anyone. I've got their respective sandboxes here: Thompson, Baselga, Massagué. If you've got the time to take a look, even at just one of the articles, I'd greatly appreciate it.--FacultiesIntact (talk) 23:57, 23 February 2018 (UTC)

@FacultiesIntact: I will see what I can do, but I'm awfully busy with school right now. A lot of the time when I'm editing it's when I'm at work and it's slow; I have ADHD and recent changes patrolling on Wikipedia stops me from pointlessly walking in circles, but the web filters there make research for article building practically impossible.

No worries if you don't have the time! I wouldn't want to pile onto your workload. If you find a chance, that's fantastic, but I'll keep looking for someone who's got more free time on their hands.--FacultiesIntact (talk) 03:52, 27 February 2018 (UTC)

Message regarding the Forest Park High School website[edit]

Hey, I was the one making the constructive changes on the FPHS website. However one of my classmates that sits next to me saw me editing the page and decided to add his own (the addition of "Mike Hawk" which was a joke). I believe you were concerned with "Kelly Green" as one of the schools colors, however Kelly Green is an actual color. I was not vandalizing when it came to adding the achievements of the Cyber Patriot and Crew team, and I cited a source to it. I took your advice and created an account as to differentiate myself from the schools IP Address. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Chef ardy (talkcontribs) 14:33, 6 April 2018 (UTC)

Re: WP:BITE[edit]

imo I think if one user did generally the same kind of edit after a warning is already given, a "more strict" warning should be added to let this user realized it is really inappropriate for its edit. Is my thinking incorrect? But I think I also should think maybe a few of my warning is too strict in this point... --Stang 13:53, 4 May 2018 (UTC)

@Stang: For one thing it's Broward County Public Schools, one of the largest school districts in the United States, so prior edits probably aren't the same person that did the most recent edit. For another thing, it's probably just some middle or high school kid messing around, not someone on a plot to undermine the encyclopedia; since they're not plastering people's names on articles or anything, I think one level one warning should suffice for now (usually with schools if someone posts something really bad I call and report it rather than go for a widespread block, but that's just me).

Rollback removed[edit]

Per your request, I have removed the rollback feature from your account. Thank you for your past contributions with it. Mz7 (talk) 02:18, 6 May 2018 (UTC)

Sorry[edit]

I am sorry. I did not realize that... I hope you can forgive me. I am just gonna take it that I was right. I hope to discuss my issues with you there. Sorry, Joshua --Kingdamian1 (talk) 01:33, 24 May 2018 (UTC)

If your email address is linked to your Wikipedia account, there is an option to "email this user" in the toolbox on the left of your screen (if you are editing from desktop; it's in a different spot in mobile). There is no need to post someone's email address (or other off-wiki contact information) on-wiki to verify that it is correct. PCHS-NJROTC (Messages)Have a blessed day. 01:40, 24 May 2018 (UTC)

Pbsouthwood RfA[edit]

As per the editnotice, there's a relatively recent restriction only allowing two questions per user on an RfA. You could probably get away with joining the first two questions together though. Bellezzasolo Discuss 21:03, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

IP hard blocks soft blocks and sunny side over[edit]

Heya, Seemed like a conversation not-too-relevant to the RFA, so I thought we could continue here. If you're running into issues with hardblocks (it sounds like you have) - WP:IPBE is always an option. I 100% understand not wanting your IP to be out there - especially if it's possibly something that gives away an employer. If you have the need for IPBE, I am more than happy to talk privately about granting that right. I wasn't sure if you were aware that this option is out there - and any admin can grant it. Feel free to email me if you want - I'm happy to help. SQLQuery me! 02:49, 3 June 2018 (UTC)

Thank you for that. Actually, I was aware of the process to get a hard block exemption, but fortunately the only time I ran into the problem was from a wi-fi hotspot, and I didn't have a great enough need to edit from there to request one or request the IP block be reduced to a softblock. Because I don't care to discuss the matter with the person in question and create unproductive drama (in my experience here, people get mad when I question their blocks whether it's on their own talk page or elsewhere), I'm not going to name him unless I have to, but I was looking over one of the CheckUser's blocks and I noticed quite a few hardblocks issued. I'm a checkuser on Conservapedia, so I can appreciate the need to sometimes hardblock, but I don't want to see average administrators start blocking IPs with thousands of users because apparently no one legitimately edits from there or few people legitimately edit from there. Just because no one edits from there now doesn't mean a newcomer might desire to start editing from there, and the harder we make it for newcomers, the less likely they are going to be bothered creating an account. Chances are, no one edited from my home IP a month ago because it belonged to someone else then, but that changed when it got assigned to me. I don't know if anyone else edits from my employer's IP or not, but it is softblocked and is shared by thousands of people. One good side effect of the softblock is that it nearly eliminates the chances of the IP being subject to an autoblock, but it also reduces the chances of us getting newcomers from there. Once upon a time, there were more than one person legitimately editing with accounts from Charlotte County Public Schools and the Charlotte County Library System, but now people rarely even edit from the Charlotte County Library System anonymously, and I doubt anyone else editing with accounts there either, so when we actually do get newcomers, I don't think we should be discouraging them.

Disambiguation link notification for June 20[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Cross country and Chorus (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are usually incorrect, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of unrelated topics with similar titles. (Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.)
