Image cropping[edit]

As You have the original image (univzimlogo.jpg), You can do the cropping Yourself? Best, feydey 19:35, 30 June 2006 (UTC)

Infobox[edit]

See Template_talk:Infobox_University for all fields available for university infobox. N.B. Sign your comments on talk pages by adding four tildes (~~~~). Cheers, feydey 08:13, 1 July 2006 (UTC)

Nice addition with the motto, I was also thinking about adding that. feydey 23:21, 1 July 2006 (UTC)

James Underwood[edit]

A tag has been placed on James Underwood, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article seems to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable (see the guidelines for notability here). If you can indicate why the subject of this article is notable, you may contest the tagging. To do this, please write {{hangon}} on the top of the page and leave a note on the article's talk page explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself.

Please read the criteria for speedy deletion (specifically, articles #7) and our general biography criteria. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. -Runningonbrains 09:37, 24 November 2006 (UTC)

I don't believe I replied to your note on my talk page about Downside School? I've added a citation to the James Underwood article, it's to Who's Who 2007. regards, Xn4 12:52, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

Rail Gauge[edit]

Sorry, I put the rail box in the Camrail article but I don't know enough about gauges to write the gauge in. Try User:Tabletop. --McTrixie/Mr Accountable 08:45, 24 December 2006 (UTC)

I would have modified this box myself, except that this box refuses to be modified (revised), the box appears to be locked. All my attempts to change it failed. Peter Horn 16:21, 24 December 2006 (UTC)

Christian Brothers College, Bulawayo[edit]

Hi there, thanks for the message. I don't actually have any connection to CBC Bulawayo apart from being a Christian Brothers alumnus (from Australia), and involvement with CB ministries. Ta for the compliment, I've had some practice putting these infoboxes together, and the College website is quite detailed in parts. When I have more time I might try to further expand on the article. Cheers. Rob Lindsey 23:34, 31 December 2006 (UTC)

And a happy new year to you! :) I know about CBC Boksburg and Pretoria, but what is the Welkom school? I've never heard of it, and I'm doing all I can to make the Christian Brothers article as complete as possible. Thanks. Rob Lindsey 14:22, 1 January 2007 (UTC)

Many thanks, I'll see what I can do. Rob Lindsey 21:42, 1 January 2007 (UTC)

Using tags meant for administrators[edit]

Regarding you most recent edit to Image:Sir Professor James Underwood.jpg (diff), you added a tag which is meant for the closing administrator to use if the consensus is to keep the image. I have reverted your edit, and please note that continued bad-faith use of that tag can be regarded as a form of vandalism. Sincerely, Oden 01:33, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned fair use image (Image:Cbcbyo.gif)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Cbcbyo.gif. I notice the 'image' page currently specifies that the image is unlicensed for use on Wikipedia and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use.

You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable under fair use (see our fair use policy).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed 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.

Image:Univzimlogo.jpg[edit]

Hello Part, an automated process has found an image or media file tagged as nonfree media, such as fair use. The image (Image:Univzimlogo.jpg) was found at the following location: User:Part. This image or media will be removed per statement number 9 of our non-free content policy. The image or media will be replaced with Image:NonFreeImageRemoved.svg , so your formatting of your userpage should be fine. The image that was replaced will not be automatically deleted, but it could be deleted at a later date. Articles using the same image should not be affected by my edits. I ask you to please not re-add the image to your userpage and could consider finding a replacement image licensed under either the Creative Commons or GFDL license or released to the public domain. Please note that it is possible that the image on your page is included vie a template or usebox. In that case, please find a free image for the template or userbox.

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:General and Systematic Pathology.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:General and Systematic Pathology.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid. Please read the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content carefully, then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies for fair use. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it will be deleted within a couple of days according to our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot (talk) 21:44, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Help[edit]

Please kindly assist with the insertion of an image on the University of Zimbabwe page. I am having trouble as the image is located on the corresponding German article, but is not available in Commons. {{help me}} Part (talk) 11:50, 1 January 2009 (UTC) Happy New Year

Sure. :) What's the URL of the image? Best, PeterSymonds (talk) 11:51, 1 January 2009 (UTC)
Never mind, found it. I'll see if it's licensed for Commons and move it over. PeterSymonds (talk) 11:52, 1 January 2009 (UTC)
Looking at the image on the German Wikipedia (which I believe you uploaded in 2006), the logo doesn't appear to be compatible for Commons. Unless you know differently, the logo probably falls under fair-use, because the image is copyrighted by the University of Zimbabwe. Therefore a Commons upload would be impossible. If that's so, you can upload it here as a fair-use image, and then place it on the university page. Best, PeterSymonds (talk) 11:59, 1 January 2009 (UTC)
Unfortunately it's not possible to link images across Wikimedia projects without their upload to Commons. To upload fair-use, see Wikipedia:Upload, which will give you a guide to uploading fair-use images. The reason the image link doesn't work is because the software doesn't recognise the image. Best, PeterSymonds (talk) 13:21, 1 January 2009 (UTC)
The image I've loaded up is the one faculty get for putting on memos etc, and the same as the one on the [www.uz.ac.zw website]. Not certain if the copyright is reserved, so uploaded it under fair use. Babakathy (talk) 12:42, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
And happy New Year! Babakathy (talk) 12:42, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

Am working on it, here for now. Trick is to get sources for things that are basically common knowledge in a community (I am also ex-faculty). Babakathy (talk) 11:05, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
I'll put an appeal for photos on the discussion page once I shift the text to article-space. Hopefully someone out there has some pictures from humanities and elsewhere, I don't... Babakathy (talk) 13:28, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Call for Wikipedians in Residence in Africa[edit]

Hello,

I hope you are well and thriving!! WikiAfrica has just put out a call for two Wikipedians in Residence. One in Cape Town at WikiAfrica, at the Africa Centre; and the other for WikiAfrica Cameroon in Douala, at doual’art. If you are interested, please contact either Marilyn [marilyn.doualabell@doualart.org] for the WikiAfrica Cameroon call or Isla [islahf@africacentre.net] for the WikiAfrica position in Cape Town.

If you are not interested in applying, I would be very grateful if you could spread this call far and wide among your networks to ensure that both projects get excellent candidates. Here is the link for the information page: http://www.wikiafrica.net/two-wikipedians-in-residence-for-africa/

WikiIndaba and Wikipedia movement in Africa[edit]

Dear Part

Mangwanani!! ... I have only just found your request about getting involved in Wiki Indaba and other Wikimedia projects. Wiki Indaba was the start of something bigger. We are still looking for people to be involved in growing the movement. The ongoing conversation will be held on this list, so please subscribe.


I have been very keen to find Wikipedians in Zimbabwe, and to start up stronger groups in Harare and/or Bulawayo, but have not managed to find anyone who is based there who can get involved. Are you based in Zim? Please feel free to contact me on my email for more details (isla [at] wikiafrica [dot] net) if you are keen to activate more people on the ground. If you want to get involved in the wider Open Movement in Africa, you can add your name to this list African Open Advocates List; if you want to subscribe to WikiAfrica's mailing list, add your details here

Thanks for getting in touch - I look forward to hearing from you! Isla Haddow (talk) 09:16, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Oral citations experiment - Namibia 2014[edit]

Hello Pgallert! I noticed a conversation between you and Isla Haddow just below my interaction with Isla. I'm very interested in attending and participating in this Participatory Design conference. Although I might not have in-depth expertise of Indigenous knowledge systems, I have been on Wikipedia for eight years - reasonably active (I'm sure you're well aware of the internet access issues in Southern Africa). By October, I would have come up to speed with Indigenous knowledge systems - already, I find your work engaging (I've seen your draft Chapter 1) and totally agree that more work must be done to reflect how other cultures transmit their knowledge. What can I do to participate? I know people in Namibia who might be able to offer me accommodation (allowing me to devote more funding to travelling - I will need funding I must mention). Part (talk) 12:56, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

Dear Part, you probably already saw Wikipedia:Oral citations experiment. If you want to be considered you would have to pick a topic from the list at the bottom of that page and develop its content. The deadline has long passed, but if you can do that before or on August 10 I could still consider your application. Just let me know if you have further questions. Cheers, Pgallert (talk) 13:42, 8 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks Pgallert. I have chosen hunting of the Mbanderu people. Despite my best efforts, I cannot find any information on this topic. The culture of the Mbanderu people seems to overlap with that of the e.g. Herero people, but there is still scant information with respect to hunting. Part (talk) 00:55, 9 August 2014 (UTC)
This is as much as I could find: "Using dogs and traps are the traditional methods of hunting. [1]." I could not make this into a distinct Hunting section because of limited information, so I put it under Culture. Hopefully this can be expanded with oral knowledge/citations. Please see Mbanderu people.

References

Hello Pgallert. What's the way forward regarding my attendance of the October workshop? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Part (talkcontribs) 09:09, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
Hello Pgallert. I saw your email - I don't mind if you make public your reason(s) for rejection. I am of the opinion the community should know because attempts are being made to build Wikipedia representation in Africa. Part (talk) 21:39, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
PS. I did not put a bare url as a reference - "Comparison of edits on Mbanderu people article". You added "{Reflist}" to your talk page where I had forgotten to put it - apologies for implying you added "{Reflist} to the Mbanderu people article. Part (talk) 11:10, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: "Peter Gallert grant application" Please note the extra {} were omitted from reflist.

Although you say I do not have the appropriate level of expertise in referencing, here is an article I created - one of several - where I have referenced. In this article I have more than 25 references which have stood the test of time (more than ~5 years online), an infobox, reference even books, have external links, categories, re-direct page, etc. Example article Part (talk) 11:26, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Dear Part, I did not agree to have my emails published here, please do not insert them again. The article in question is from 2009, is the only article without large unreferenced pieces that you ever produced, and still the majority of the references contains just title, accessdate, and url. While not strictly 'bare references' in Wikipedia-speak, they are still missing authors, publishers, pagination, context... in other words, all what will be important in the context of our workshop.
Six of the references have this information: author, year, title, publisher, city, pagination, etc Part (talk) 10:11, 21 August 2014 (UTC).
To quote from the grants document: The workshop facilitators vet the entries that have been produced, as well as the general Wikipedia experience of the applicants. Prospective participants must, as a minimum, have produced content on English Wikipedia that still exists, and that even after thorough scrutiny would not be deleted or be peppered with maintenance templates. --Pgallert (talk) 11:45, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
I was not hunting for singular errors. I'm sorry and understand that you are disappointed, and will give some more detail via email. Cheers, Pgallert (talk) 12:00, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
"the only article without large unreferenced pieces that you ever produced" I don't know if these articles I've produced have large unreferenced regions or are large unreferenced pieces Example 2, Example 3, Example 4, etc Part (talk) 15:18, 20 August 2014 (UTC) Articles I've created found here HERE Part (talk) 15:23, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
Dear Part, I do know how to get the list of the articles you created, there is no need to shout at me by bolding your posts, and I'm not sure if it makes sense to discuss their referencing here, as I seem not to have the ability to bring my concerns across. If you are interested in particular reviews, maybe we can lead that discussion on the respective article talk pages? --Pgallert (talk) 15:43, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
I was just providing evidence, because I don't think it's true that "the only article without large unreferenced pieces that (I) you ever produced" was that one. I try and make it as easy as possible for anyone to quickly verify my evidence. Part (talk) 15:56, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
You write, "there is no need to shout at me by bolding your posts". You are free to have your interpretation of me shouting. I was not shouting at you - I started using bold face above, that was not directed at you. Also, in the text you removed Deleted text, before my alleged shouting occurred, I in fact put in bold what you were writing, not what I was writing. I use bold font, and/or color to make it easier for readers to identify who is writing and also to highlight what I deem to be important text. You put some text in italics, which originally was not in italics. I did not interpret this as shouting. Part (talk) 19:23, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
Before you asked me to try and work on something, you had access to my editing history. It is only after I tried working on something that you raise concerns about my previous editing; concerns which I find debatable. Part (talk) 20:01, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

October 2015[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Nomoskedasticity. I noticed that you made a comment on the page Philip Baker (obstetrician)‎ that didn't seem very civil, so it has been removed. Wikipedia is built on collaboration, so it's one of our core principles to interact with one another in a polite and respectful manner. If you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. "Nomo is biased and even intellectually dishonest", in https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Philip_Baker_(obstetrician)&curid=47567250&diff=685514986&oldid=685464784 Nomoskedasticity (talk) 08:19, 13 October 2015 (UTC)

Nomoskedasticity you seem to be intellectually dishonest. I pointed out that the date is June and not July which is supported by the two references you cited. Am I not telling the truth about the date? Are you not being dishonest? Part (talk) 08:26, 13 October 2015 (UTC)

Please stop attacking other editors, as you did on Philip Baker (obstetrician)‎. If you continue, you may be blocked from editing. Comment on content, not on other contributors or people. Nomoskedasticity (talk) 08:44, 13 October 2015 (UTC)

My comment of intellectual dishonesty is not a personal attack please see (Personal attack removed) I am sorry and apologize if you perceived it this way. Part (talk) 08:45, 13 October 2015 (UTC)
I do not accept an apology that is framed in terms of something I have done. If you want to apologize, you can apologize for something you have done. Nomoskedasticity (talk) 08:48, 13 October 2015 (UTC)
This is amazing, you reverted to a version that I pointed out is incorrect. Nomoskedasticity do you dispute this? I point out this is not proper (backed by evidence - which means this is not a personal attack), next thing you are slapping me with threats of being blocked from editing. I apologize for removing your first reference when I first came across the article, I have subsequently not quibbled about this since it was put back. I have no objection to you mentioning the admission in the article as long as what is written is factually correct. Part (talk) 09:00, 13 October 2015 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) Part, you really need to drop the stick. (And aren't you the one who said "I think I give up, I don't have time to continue this"?) In addition, while considering this a personal attack is debatable (and I'm not sure what "intellectually dishonest" is supposed to mean), it's ironic that you call Nomo biased when the person who really appears to be biased is you because you don't seem to want to keep any negative, well-sourced biographical information in the article. Mr. Baker messed up, so he resigned. Live with it and move on. Erpert blah, blah, blah... 18:37, 13 October 2015 (UTC)
Erpert did you see this edit from an "anonymous" IP 64.222.64.38? very likely by Nomoskedasticity. You fail to mention that Nomoskedasticity has repeatedly reverted to a version that is incorrect, open vandalsim by Nomo. This is dishonest by Nomo. There is no where I disagreed with the admission, I was upfront about that. Part (talk) 19:25, 13 October 2015 (UTC)
Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Philip Baker (obstetrician) shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you get reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

Also, read WP:AGF and WP:NOTVAND. Just because an IP makes an edit doesn't make it vandalism. Ian.thomson (talk) 01:27, 14 October 2015 (UTC)

Thank you Ian.thomson. I stated why it was vandalism in the edit summary - "Unknown" IP reverted to a wrong date, etc. Otherwise I agree that IP edits are not necessarily vandalism, but in this case I gave reasons why and this can be checked/verified. 06:53, 14 October 2015 (UTC)
See my response on my talk page. In short: if your problem was just the date, you'd've only removed the word "July" instead of using it as an excuse to change other content and your latest edit to the page was a manual revert but still a revert. Not related to your block, but the source you're using can only, at best, be used to establish that Baker claims Gawande didn't take offense. Ian.thomson (talk) 09:27, 14 October 2015 (UTC)

You have been blocked from editing for a period of 24 hours for edit warring, as you did at Philip Baker (obstetrician). Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions. If you think there are good reasons why you should be unblocked, you may appeal this block by first reading the guide to appealing blocks, then adding the following text below this notice: {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}.

During a dispute, you should first try to discuss controversial changes and seek consensus. If that proves unsuccessful, you are encouraged to seek dispute resolution, and in some cases it may be appropriate to request page protection.

Request reason:

Ian.thomson I'm sure you can see how Nomoskedasticity deliberately reverted to a wrong date repeatedly and possibly even using a different IP, Nomoskedasticity was smart enough to avoid being blocked by apparently using a different IP. I have added balance to the article. In addition NPOV states representing fairly, proportionately, and, as far as possible, without bias, all of the significant views that have been ...'' The only part of the article with two references is the contentious issue. Is this then a proportionate representation of the subject? I see systematic bias creeping in and I think this is one of the major reasons Wikipedia is loosing editors by making it hard for inexperienced editors to navigate the complex rules, while experienced editors can apply technicalities and use IP addresses, etc. to mask their dishonest conduct and get away with it at the expense of loosing editors who might have something to contribute. Nomoskedasticity's initial article was not a fair representation of the subject according to NPOV and was not factually accurate. I respectfully request you unblock me. Part (talk) 12:17, 14 October 2015 (UTC)

Decline reason:

Absolutely none of that deals with the fact that you edit-warred, which is the reason for the block. The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 15:27, 14 October 2015 (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.

You might want to read WP:NOTTHEM and revise your post. Also, WP:No personal attacks includes allegations which lack evidence. You would need to provide evidence that the IP addresses that reverted you belonged to Nomoskedasticity when making accusations.
Multiple editors have explained for you that the source you cited fails WP:RS. You have not explained how it meets WP:RS. Explaining that now will not get you unblocked, but you will need to do that if you want to avoid getting blocked if you use that source again.
The "this is what's wrong with Wikipedia" bit is pretty standard for requests that get rejected by admins. You might want to revise that part. Ian.thomson (talk) 12:34, 14 October 2015 (UTC)
Ian.thomson thanks for your response. That's the point I can't prove it's him/her and he/she has used a sophisticated technical approach which is what you're doing to censure me. Never mind, the systematic bias is clear and you're part of it. I have no interest in editing that article anymore. Part (talk) 13:08, 14 October 2015 (UTC)
For the record Ian.thomson writes "Multiple editors have explained for you that the source you cited fails WP:RS.", while only one editor mentioned this Nomoskedasticity on one occasion. This is evidence of the systematic bias and use of technicalities to censure others while living others scot free. Part (talk) 19:12, 14 October 2015 (UTC)
While I agree with User:JamesBWatson he/she doesn't seem to appreciate that Nomoskedasticity clearly violated NPOV and deliberately reverted to an incorrect version (which prompted my editing). None of the other parties have said anything to censure Nomoskedasticity. Further evidence of systematic bias even by an administrator. 19:22, 14 October 2015 (UTC)

Part (block logactive blocksglobal blocksautoblockscontribsdeleted contribsabuse filter logcreation logchange block settingsunblock)


Request reason:

The administrator writes "blocked Part ... with an expiry time of 24 hours (account creation blocked) (Edit warring: at Philip Baker (obstetrician), with claims of reverting vandalism to cover up content changes)" I did not claim vandalism, what occurred was real vandalism change to a wrong date and yes I also changed the content, but it still remained factually true and supported by the references. I make another unblock request to test the extent of systematic bias. 1. Is what I reverted not vandalism i.e. wrong date? Are the changes I made not factually true? Why was user Nomoskedasticity not censured in any way? I want to demonstrate that systematic bias exists and technical rules are unfairly applied to censure relatively inexperienced editors with limited capacity to navigate the complexity of the rules. Part (talk) 20:36, 14 October 2015 (UTC)

Decline reason:

I'd call what you did there "whitewashing". You repeatedly removed well-sourced relevant content. That's edit-warring, and you're not addressing it at all. Huon (talk) 21:00, 14 October 2015 (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.

Thanks Huon, please give the specific examples of where I repeatedly removed well-sourced relevant content. I removed admitted and put accused which is factually true, perhaps you haven't read the articles, first there were accusations, then a resignation, then admission. I fully agree to that and that is supported by the references. The last edit I made which led to this block had accused and admitted and was the most comprehensive account of the event ever made on the page. And you too fail to comment on systematic bias Part (talk) 21:46, 14 October 2015 (UTC)
Thank you Huon, Ian.thomson, Nomoskedasticity, JamesBWatson and Erpert for participating in a Wikipedia experiment whose results will appear next year (due to peer review and publishing lag). Part (talk) 21:58, 14 October 2015 (UTC)
Baker admitted he plagiarized the speech, confirmed by The Star (whose wording strongly suggests that the admission predates the resignation, not postdates it). Removed here, here, here, here. The last time you claimed vandalism for no good reason that wouldn't also apply to your own edits. That's not even addressing the other problems with your conduct, which I find more and more troubling the deeper I look into the issue. The above claim of a "Wikipedia experiment" sounds like grounds for a WP:NOTHERE indefinite block to me. The "systematic bias" claim is not accompanied by any evidence. Huon (talk) 22:36, 14 October 2015 (UTC)
An experiment/study has been conducted and and will be published from this experience. I have stated clearly if you read the initial talk page that I do not disagree with the admission. What does the first reference I quoted on the talk page state, even in title? That he resigned following accusations while an investigation was ongoing. I have provided evidence of systematic bias. Part (talk) 23:11, 14 October 2015 (UTC)
The study will focus on my own conduct and the conduct of the highlighted editors. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Systemic_bias
Last edit here for complete publicly available audit trail. The study will contribute to further understanding the dynamics between Wikipedia editors and how this can be improved. Part (talk) 00:07, 15 October 2015 (UTC)
Oh, the "social experiment" claim. Seen that one before. Never has any effect on or off the site, it seems. Ian.thomson (talk) 08:34, 15 October 2015 (UTC)
This is real Ian.thomson, at some point I realized this is a good opportunity to study the dynamics and get some insights. It didn't start out as such but rich data has been generated. Part (talk) 08:39, 15 October 2015 (UTC)
Will you be including your violation of site policies in the study? There's a reason that real social scientists usually remain independent of what they're studying -- they don't want to skew the results with their presence. Ian.thomson (talk) 08:42, 15 October 2015 (UTC)
  • Your recent remarks are clearly a childish attempt to intimidate, but let's leave that aside. Meanwhile, let me just point out that while you claim that I don't "seem to appreciate that Nomoskedasticity clearly violated NPOV and deliberately reverted to an incorrect version", you have fundamentally missed the point of what my role as an administrator was. I came to this page to review a request for an unblock on your account, and that's what I did. Whether anyone else was at fault is irrelevant, as the block is about your actions. "Yes, your honour, I did beat him up, but I shouldn't be convicted, because he murdered someone" is not a valid defence. Get it? The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 08:46, 15 October 2015 (UTC)
The study will go through formal peer review and as I have mentioned my conduct will be objectively evaluated like all the parties involved JamesBWatson Part (talk) 09:00, 15 October 2015 (UTC)

Hi Part,
As you are a long time editor, you know Wikipedia's policies about living people.
Perhaps it would be best if we leave it at that.
--Shirt58 (talk) 11:05, 31 January 2016 (UTC)

Response. I do not know which policy or policies you are referring to, please provide the link and and explanation. You seem to be defending your actions by not being transparent about your reasons. Part (talk) 11:30, 31 January 2016 (UTC)
Yes, I agree with you that I am partially defending my actions by not being transparent about my reasons, as you put it. I will not resile from continuing to not mention the subject of the article that you wrote, and that I deleted.
The reason for this is Wikipedia's biographies of living persons policy.
From what I can see, if the article had not been deleted, would it have it gone through a Wikipedia:Articles for deletion discussion and it would have been deleted as very obviously not meeting the WP:BLP1E part of that policy. That process would take maybe two weeks. In that time, the article would have been addedd to various Wikipedia data scraping websites that Wikipedia and the Wikimedia Foundation has no control over. The indignity suffered by the subject of the that you wrote, and that I deleted, would then be there for anyone to see.
I admit that I did not go through the regular processes when I deleted that article. I assert that the policy Wikipedia:Biographies of living persons trumps the essay Wikipedia:Process is important every time.
If you think I breached my community-granted administrator privileges, then please do start a discussion at WP:ANI about me.
(Technically WP:AN would be place to start this, but WP:ANI is the default notice-board for everything.)
