WikiProject Politics[edit]

Anyone can join WikiProjects and help out. I wouldn't be the best person to ask about any specifics of the project since I just joined and really haven't started contributing yet. You'd probably be better off asking someone who joined a while ago and his been involved in it longer for any more information. Best of luck to you.

Removal of BLP PROD on Vertika Verma[edit]

You removed BLP PROD from the article Vertika Verma. According to the BLP PROD policy the article should have atleast one claim in the references that matches any claim in the article. The refs are complete hoax. They are written about models, tourist spots, television shows etc. None of them even mention the person. Please reply. Harsh (talk) 08:25, 7 September 2012 (UTC)

Page Curation newsletter[edit]

Hey Righteousskills. I'm dropping you a note because you used to (or still do!) patrol new pages. This is just to let you know that we've deployed and developed Page Curation, which augments and supersedes Special:NewPages - there are a lot of interesting new features :). There's some help documentation here if you want to familiarise yourself with the system and start using it. If you find any bugs or have requests for new features, let us know here. Thanks! Okeyes (WMF) (talk) 12:50, 24 September 2012 (UTC)

Francis Holl[edit]

I notice you recently added both Category:Dead people and Category:1884 deaths to the article Francis Holl. That's not necessary; if you know the year of death, you should just add the category for that and leave Category:Dead people off. (And if you don't know the year of death, you should add something like Category:Year of death missing and leave Category:Dead people off. Category:Dead people is a container category, and should never be added to individual articles.) — Paul A (talk) 01:41, 28 September 2012 (UTC)

Thank you Paul A, that makes sense.Righteousskills (talk) 18:52, 29 September 2012 (UTC)

Hi, just to let you know that the Template:Wikify tag has now been deprecated. Please use Template:underlinked or Template:dead end from now on, cheers. Delsion23 (talk) 11:05, 2 October 2012 (UTC)

Stubs[edit]

Please take care not to add {{stub}} to an article like Wushan Yangtze River Bridge which already has appropriate stub templates. It just wastes other people's time. Thanks. PamD 15:25, 3 October 2012 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Hi! Thank you for your hep here: 1. See you!--USAnne (talk) 01:58, 12 October 2012 (UTC)

What do you think about the article? Leave your opinion there. Hugs, --USAnne (talk) 01:55, 13 October 2012 (UTC)
Hello USAnne, so there were a few issues with this page (before it was deleted). From what I remember there was no biography section, with biography pages any information regarding his early life and history should be added. Also, a main portion of the article was based on his dissertation, this is not a notable topic. What makes it notable is relevant current research and related publications. These need to comply with wikipedias Notability guidelines for biographies and secondary sources.

Hope this helps. Righteousskills (talk) 17:47, 14 October 2012 (UTC)

BLPPRODs[edit]

Stop adding BLPPRODs to articles that have a reference. You've recently added them to K. Sambasiva Sastri, Friðjón Þórðarson, Franz Schulz (footballer born 1991). They all had atleast one ref. Bgwhite (talk) 19:54, 22 October 2012 (UTC)

The reason I placed it on the K. Sambasiva Sastri article was because the external link is not a source, the Friðjón Þórðarson article did not have a reference when I added the BLPPROD which is why I put it up, it obviously has a link now though and is a stub, and the link on the Franz Schulz (footballer born 1991) article seemed unreliable.Righteousskills (talk) 23:39, 22 October 2012 (UTC)
Please let me know if my thinking wasn't rational.Righteousskills (talk) 23:49, 22 October 2012 (UTC)
Doesn't matter. You have to go by what the rules say.
Per WP:BLPPROD, "To place a BLPPROD tag, the process requires that the article contain no sources in any form (as references, external links, etc.), which support any statements made about the person in the biography". Bgwhite (talk) 00:04, 23 October 2012 (UTC)

Driveby tagging[edit]

Hi Righteousskills. Bots like Page Curation are useful but indiscriminate, as exemplified by tagging Yunji Qiqian as needing footnotes. They are unnecessary because it already uses WP:PAREN-style inline citations. Thanks, however for tagging copyediting, from which this new article could benefit. Any suggestions? Keahapana (talk) 23:24, 28 October 2012 (UTC)

FYI... Page Curation is not a Bot. It is a 100% manual tool.
Personally, I have a bias against parenthetical referencing because I come from the sciences where it is never used. Bias aside, I see the footnote tag used alot on these type of articles because parenthetical referencing is rarely used (relatively speaking). It is best in these situations to just remove the tag and move on. I really liked the article. I'm jealous because if there was a dream job of mine, it would be a historian of China/Korea. Bgwhite (talk) 04:55, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
Ya page curation is a manual tool, and one I am still familiarizing myself with. I actually had not known about the parenthetical referencing nuance, but after reading it I agree with Bgwhite about having a bias; my opinion though is that it can get confuses with the content, which is what happened to me and why I put up the copy edit tag. The nice thing about inline citations is how clean it leaves the paragraph, if you want to see the citation you can click on the number and it takes you to the footnotes section. As stated above though, if you do not want to do that just remove the tags, since it officially is clean. The content of the page is cool though!Righteousskills (talk) 17:48, 30 October 2012 (UTC)
Thanks, I was unfamiliar with Page Curation. There are advantages and disadvantages to each citation format, but the increasing popularity of mobile devices may technologically decide the question. Wikipedia footnotes (actually endnotes?) work well with a mouse, but have you tried reading them on a smart phone? Best wishes, Keahapana (talk) 19:41, 31 October 2012 (UTC)

École Maurice-Lavallée wiki page[edit]

Dear Righteousskills, I have noticed the "more footnotes" tag you added on the wiki page École Maurice-Lavallée last September. I just added more external references to rectify this wiki page. Are the new references enough to remove your tag, or should I add more information before you can remove the "more footnotes" tag? Thank you for your support. Philippe Manseau (talk) 21:50, 30 October 2012 (UTC)

Ya looks good, I took the tag down for you. Righteousskills (talk) 00:04, 31 October 2012 (UTC)

Nicolas Kent[edit]

Thanks for improving this page. However, the form of one of the references you have rewritten (number 5) strikes me as less than ideal. --Agarpp (talk) 01:33, 31 October 2012 (UTC)

Hahaha ya it was certainly less than ideal. I fixed it, thanks for letting me know and being cordial. Righteousskills (talk) 01:36, 31 October 2012 (UTC)

Documents from the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library and Museum[edit]

hi

I work at the Gerald Ford Presidential Library and Museum, and we are uploading materials to Wikimedia Commons. We have a number of documents that might be of interest to you - they are located at Wikimedia, Category:Documents at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library and Museum.

If you are interested in writing articles/stubs, I may be able to provide you with pictures from our archives as well. We have a limited number of artifacts, to also at Wikimedia, Category:Artifacts at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library and Museum.

Let me know if I can help in any way, and please feel free to pass the word about these docs; I'd love to see some content generated around them....thanks! Bdcousineau (talk) 17:50, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

Dispute resolution volunteer survey[edit]

Peace dove.svg

Dispute Resolution – Volunteer Survey Invite


Hello Righteousskills. To follow up on the first survey in April, I am conducting a second survey to learn more about dispute resolution volunteers - their motivations for resolving disputes, the experiences they've had, and their ideas for the future. I would appreciate your thoughts. I hope that with the results of this survey, we will learn how to increase the amount of active, engaged volunteers, and further improve dispute resolution processes. The survey takes around five to ten minutes, and the information you provide will not be shared with third parties other than to assist in analyzing the results of the survey. No personally identifiable information will be released.

Please click HERE to participate.
Many thanks in advance for your comments and thoughts.


You are receiving this invitation because you have either listed yourself as a volunteer at a dispute resolution forum, or are a member of a dispute resolution committee. For more information, please see the page that describes my fellowship work which can be found here. Szhang (WMF) (talk) 02:46, 29 November 2012 (UTC)

Your take is wanted on this template discussion[edit]

Happy new year! There is a discussion to properly rename the Template_talk:Primary_sources#Propose making the contents match the title so as not to conflate the issue of using primary sources and the issue of lacking third-party sources. I hope that you can express your view there. --Hanteng (talk) 06:56, 1 January 2013 (UTC)

DRN organisers[edit]

Hello. I am just letting you know that I've made a proposal to create a rotating DRN organiser-style role that would help with the day-to-day running of DRN.

DRN needs your help![edit]

Hi there. I've noticed it's been a while since you've been active at DRN, and we could really use your help! DRN is going to undergo some changes soon, so it'd really be great if our backlog is cleared before the start of August and we have as many people on board to help with the changes (they include a move to subpages and the creation of a rotating "co-ordinator" role to help manage things day-to-day.

The new face of DRN: Righteousskills[edit]

Recently the Dispute Resolution Noticeboard underwent some changes in how it operates. Part of the change involved a new list of volunteers with a bit of information about the people behind the names.

You are listed as a volunteer at DRN currently, to update your profile is simple, just click here. Thanks, Cabe6403(TalkSign) 17:23, 7 August 2013 (UTC)

Your involvement with DRN[edit]

Hi there, I noticed that you haven't been as active at DRN as you was before. DRN has been a bit backlogged lately and we could use some extra hands. We have updated our volunteer list to a new format, Wikipedia:Dispute resolution noticeboard/Volunteers (your name is still there under the old format if you haven't updated it) and are looking into ways to make DRN more effective and more rewarding for volunteers (your input is appreciated!). If you don't have much time to volunteer at the moment, that's fine too, just move your name to the inactive list (you're free to add yourself back to active at any time). Hope to see you again soon :) Steven Zhang (talk) 13:30, 25 September 2013 (UTC)

IP block exemption[edit]

This blocked user's unblock request has been reviewed by an administrator, who declined the request. Other administrators may also review this block, but should not override the decision without good reason (see the blocking policy). Do not remove this unblock review while you are blocked.

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


Request reason:

Requesting an IP address block exemption, because I often use open wifi and would like to protect myself from hackers. I used to edit very frequently but had to temporarily stop. I now have some more free time so Id like to volunteer and help out some more. Righteousskills (talk) 22:19, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Decline reason:

No convincing reason given. You're certainly not the only editor to use public wifi. Furthermore, as far as I can tell you are not currently subject to any active blocks, so there isn't anything to unblock in the first place. OhNoitsJamie Talk 20:27, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

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

How does having IP block exemption protect you from hackers? Kuru (talk) 12:10, 12 July 2014 (UTC)
My guess would be because he's going to be using anonymity software or services while using open wi-fi. —Jeremy v^_^v Bori! 21:00, 12 July 2014 (UTC)
Yes, I dont always use a physical network, so when I use public wifi I like to use hotspot shields or something similar. In the past I have been harmed by hackers while using public networks and want to protect myself. So I take several precautions, including the use of a VPN, to protect myself as best I can.Righteousskills (talk) 19:06, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

Derwick Associates[edit]

Hello,

I reverted some changes in the page in which the powerplants built by the company were deleted, I added a new source to the section and explained the reasons in the talk page. I am sorry for the language I used, and for reverting part of your work. After visiting your page I beleive your are really triying to improve the article, is just that in the past there have been a lot of destructive edits in both directions. I personally think the article can be improved by organizing it and making sure its as neutral as possible. It will be good for the article to have an experienced editor like you contributing. --46.25.106.207 (talk) 16:00, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for keeping up the discussion. I will continue it on the Derwick talk page. Righteousskills (talk) 17:58, 5 August 2014 (UTC)
Hi Righteousskills, thanks for your note. I'm very active on Spanish Wikipedia with +1800 articles created and +3000 on maintenance so I guess I know a bit about RS. The fact is deleting without arguing or under personal perspectives without consensus from other editors is considered against policies as well so ask for such before major edits next time. Thanks.--Gilwellian (talk) 22:54, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

Hello Righteousskills, welcome back to Wikipedia. Since you stop contributing in march 2013, I am concerned that you may have forgotten the above policies you asked me to review. I am surprised to see how most of the edits you have done since your return less than a month ago have been centered on Derwick Associates, and the page of its CEO. In both cases you have tried to remove relevant well sourced information leaving the articles clearly unbalaced and centered on open civil suits in which there are economical interests at play.

Its even more surprising that you have created pages in which you included the civil suits information for two other people Francisco D'Agostino and Pedro Trebbau López.

You just argued that the project section of Derwick should be removed even though it had two strong RS, you ignored my arguments and tried to remove it a second time. It really surprised me to see that you also created a page, just two weeks ago, for ProEnergy Services and that you added a projects section for that company with some of the same power plants you removed from Derwick's page. Amaizingly all your sources for the projects section and for the rest of the ProEnergy Services page you created are six references pointing to the website of the company itself! --46.24.172.71 (talk) 17:17, 7 August 2014 (UTC)

I am answering this on the talk page of the artcile. Righteousskills (talk) 00:16, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

Dear Righteouskills, In answer to your comment Derwick Associates page, I am trying to understand the motivation behind your recent edits, Please correct me if I am wrong:

  • On July 7 2014 after been inactive since march 2013, you request an IP block exemption and claim it is to protect your account from hackers.
  • On July 16 you created the ProEnergy Services page.
  • On July 17 you added a projects section to ProEnergy's page that looked just like Derwik's and had some of the same plants listed, as sources you added two references pointing to ProEnergy's page. Click to see
  • On July 20 you created a BLP for Francisco D'Agostino and linked it to Derwick
  • On July 21 you created a BLP for Pedro Trebbau López
  • On July 23 You posted comments in Derwick's talk page saying you arrived to that page after editing related articles and offered your help Click to see. This seems to contradict what you just wrote to me, that you edit this pages "because I was drawn by the clear disputes going on in the talk pages..." Click to see
  • On August 5 you did the edits in which you deleted information from Derwick's page including its projects section that had sourced information in the exact same format as the one you added for ProEnergy services on July 17, and that you still insist in deleting.
  • On August 5 you also added the information about the civil suit to the BLPs of Francisco D'Agostino and Pedro Trebbau López.
  • On August 6 you added what seem be biased editions to the civil suits information on the BLPs of Francisco D'Agostino and Pedro Trebbau López making them more biased. In this suits the plaintiffs are asking for large sums claiming they were defamed and in the text of of the suits include allegations of corruption in the text of one of them the plaintiff states that RICO articles apply. I agree that he sources are RS but to me, the wording and subsequent edits are anything but NPOV.
  • On August 6 you also erased most information and RS from the page of Alejandro Betancourt except for the suit information.
  • On August 6 you again erased the projects information from Derwik's page
  • Today August 8 you removed the projects section of ProEnergy´s leaving that page with just two sources and they still point to its corporate web page

I have gone through the trouble of summarizing all this edits to show my concerns. All of your edits, seem in my view, aimed at promoting the information of the suit, and also seem clearly biased.
I am not accusing you of anything, I just don't understand the motivations. I am not saying that this be the case, but I do hope this account has not been indeed compormised as was suggested possible by this user's edit of July 7, the pattern of these recent edits to me is surprisingly different from the contributions of Righteousskill previous to stopping its editing activity in march 2013. If I am wrong please accept my apologies --46.24.172.71 (talk) 19:57, 8 August 2014 (UTC)


Im not sure what the question is you are asking. What is my motivation for editing these pages? What's ANYONES motivation for editing a page? The simplest answer is because I am interested in the topic, noticed the debate, and noticed that several important pages did not exist.

Also, please understand that I am not constantly on Wikipedia; I do have work to do in the real world. This is why I only made partial edits to ProEnergy Services recently. There are more to come, please be patient.

Also nothing I added is biased. I added notable details covered in major newspapers that are unquestionably considered RSs.

I would prefer keeping this discussion on the talk page of the article, since this is becoming a jumbled mess. Righteousskills (talk) 20:08, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

Sorry, The reason for posting here is that many other pages are also involved, but after this comment I will try to keep all future disscusions on the page of the article.
All the links you used to create ProEnergy Services as you admitted were not RS, others you erased like ABC (newspaper)and Expansión to name just two are RS.
You also did add notable details covered in major newspapers that are unquestionably considered RSs. The proper source does not mean that in some cases the information was not written in a biased way.
I also consider your recent contributions biased as a whole in the sense that the BLPs and the company page you created, and have been the sole contributor of, are at the moment biased, and the edits you tried to perform on the other two existing pages were mostly deleting neutral or positive information or adding negative information.
On the other hand, the "people familiar with the matter" that were the source cited in the latest WSJ article must be very happy with all the extra coverage they have gotten. Minutes after it was published, you inserted it as RS in all the pages you created and edited in the last few days. Except for Francisco D'Agostino (for now?)

My last question, and I will drop the subject, was all of this really unintentional?46.24.172.71 (talk) 18:45, 9 August 2014 (UTC)

Unintentional? No, I very intentionally made these edits because at first I was interested in the debate, and NOW I am involved with the argument myself.

Just because I made a mistake in the past with ProEnergy Serives does not discredit me from the positive changes I am trying to make overall on all pages. I AM ALSO WORKING TO FIX PROENERGY SERVICES!!!! I dont understand why you keep bringing that up as a point against my activity on Derwick. Derwick is covered by a lot more reliable sources. ProEnergy has fewer, but the Industrial Works Magazine I believe is a reliable source. Also, the new sources I found do not mention D'Agostino, and I therefore left it out.

This is beside the point, please see the talk page of Derwick for a better understanding of my point. Righteousskills (talk) 21:44, 9 August 2014 (UTC)

Edit warring on Alejandro Betancourt López[edit]

As you're a presumed regular, I'm not going to template you. You've been reported to the edit warring noticeboard for edit warring on Alejandro Betancourt López. I suggest you stop editing on both this page and Derwick Associates otherwise you're likely to find yourself blocked. Take it to the talk pages and come to a reasonable consensus with other editors. Dusti*Let's talk!* 00:56, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

Hello Dusti. I received your message about the edit warring on Derwick Associates. First off I would like to protest these allegations made by Gilwellian. They are unfounded in any factual basis. The truth is that he and a number of unregistered IP users have been attempting to revert information sourced from the Wall Street Journal or alter what the sourced info states. I am frankly a little shock that I am the one under scrutiny here. If you are going to look into my edits, then I ask that you look into those of my accuser as well and those of ALL recent editors on these pages. I have been active on the talk pages, and every point I have made has been completely ignored. It is an egregious claim by Gilwellian that the unregistered IPs are likely me; all of these accounts support THEIR view. Please look into their action as well.
I just looked at the pages again and see what Gilwellian was talking about. The unregistered users re-adding the info from the Wall Street Journal. I can adamantly state that these users are not me. Nonetheless I would like to resubmit my request to have ALL edits reviewed. Righteousskills (talk) 17:34, 11 August 2014 (UTC)
it was obvious that most of you have an obsessive interest in providing references and arguments to support alleged defamatory thesis above biographical ones. If we had maintained the status quo of my edition of a month ago, on goodwill and structuring the article from a neutral point of view this would not have happened. My contributions to Wikipedia are mainly focused in the High Middle Ages, so I did waste too much time here. This murky affair is of no benefit to anyone and not fair. Take care.--Gilwellian (talk) 07:01, 12 August 2014 (UTC)
The Status Quo from a MONTH AGO??? Without all the revelations recently made in the WALL STREET JOURNAL??? Your claim is invalid. It is a different debate about the RSs and notability for the EPC Projects section, but removing the info form the WSJ or whitewashing it is not in line with WP Policy. Righteousskills (talk) 01:51, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
This article is useful for a very few people, limited to peculiar viewpoints and almost restricted to certain people whose editions are strangely geared to emphasize the legal issues rather than biographical details and general information. I could accept your animosity, but again I insist that Wikipedia can not be a particular battlefield to anyone. Take care.--Gilwellian (talk) 08:15, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

I understand that point, but you cannot remove details about those lawsuits when they are notable, RS, and frankly, given that it comes from the WSJ, not defamatory. The article is not about Derwick's attorneys denying the charges; the article is about how these charges against Derwick and its executives exist! If the Wall Street Journal released an article about some nonsense, say Betancourt likes cats, then there would be some pretty significant notability about this if the paper was publishing it; enough to put it in Wikipedia. But it does not say something trivial like this, it says he is under criminal investigation by US authorities. I hope you can see this point. Righteousskills (talk) 19:18, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

For the last time. The only source to suport the claims in the article is what the anonymous "people familiar with the matter" said to the journalist, and acording to them, the company, is under preliminary investigations not the BLP
  • why did you change "preliminary investigations" into "criminal investigations"?
  • why you did not quote the primary source mentioned in the article and stated its opinions as fact?
  • why you did not quote the other primary source's opinion in the article that questioned the validity of the claim?
  • why did you mention the person as been directly under investigation if only the company was said to be under preliminary investigations?
  • why you and the IP users insist so much in pushing this clearly biased version See diff.
  • You are making a false stament when you claimed above that the article says that "he is under criminal investigation by US authorities". Please quote where exactly. You can not simply infer that because his company is claimed to be under preliminary invesitgations --46.27.255.176 (talk) 00:26, 14 August 2014 (UTC)Crystallizedcarbon (talk) 06:02, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
