HI

you say that im being a meanie or whatever. I dont see how? Whitsttable (talk) 15:52, 26 December 2007 (UTC)

I assume you have noticed the above account is being used to disparage me, and has a redirect on their userpage to go to mine? Just that you left civility warnings on my page, not their one! Whitstable (talk) 15:57, 26 December 2007 (UTC)
No, I am not User:Whitsttable. I would guess the disruption is due to ongoing cases I am involved in here, here and here Whitstable (talk) 16:05, 26 December 2007 (UTC)

and i will make as many sockpuppets as I like!

get lost! you won't block me! if you do ill just make more sockpuppets!!! like this one, but worse! Whitsttable (talk) 15:58, 26 December 2007 (UTC)

Fine, go ahead and do a checkuser

My IP address changes every time I disconnect my modem, so you won't find any link anyway. Whittstable (talk) 16:05, 26 December 2007 (UTC)

But you will operate in the same range, and your isp may have traceable logs, so it is still a worthwhile consideration. LessHeard vanU (talk) 16:33, 26 December 2007 (UTC)
Oh no, you see it really doesn't work like that from my past experiences. Yeah you better be sorry Whitstabble (talk) 16:36, 26 December 2007 (UTC)

List of U.S. towns with foreign country names

I don't understand why I need multiple citations... isn't it easy to see that the names of these towns are also names of countries? Do I need a source that backs up the fact that names such as "Mexico" and "Peru" are indeed countries? All of them have Wikipedia articles about them...

Dear Rjd0060, here is a little note to say thank you for your kind support on my request for adminship which succeeded with a final result of (72/19/6).

Now that I am a sysop, do not hesitate to contact me with any queries you have. I would be glad to help you along with the other group of kind and helpful administrators.

Thank you again and I look forward to editing alongside you in the future. — E talk 12:15, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

Question

How'd you find out about those new accounts? Equazcion /C 05:38, 3 Jan 2008 (UTC)

I checked User:Nercronalon (LWA)'s user creation log. You can do that by going to somebody's user page, and in the "toolbox" section on the left click "Logs". Or, just go to Special:Logs and enter your search information. - Rjd0060 (talk) 05:41, 3 January 2008 (UTC)
I see... How does that work though? Does it just detect that those users are all using the same IP? Or is there some way to create new accounts while logged in that I'm unaware of? Equazcion /C 05:44, 3 Jan 2008 (UTC)
Yes, you can create an account while logged in. Wasn't the smartest thing to do. - Rjd0060 (talk) 05:46, 3 January 2008 (UTC)
Waddaya know. I've been here for over a year and never knew that. Thanks :) Equazcion /C 05:48, 3 Jan 2008 (UTC)
Sure, but if you are going to make some "secret sockpuppets" for later use, it may be best to log out first...LOL, I needed that laugh. - Rjd0060 (talk) 05:48, 3 January 2008 (UTC)
Ha yeah... well no one ever accused vandals of being college-educated. Equazcion /C 05:51, 3 Jan 2008 (UTC)
I laughed when I read that person created accounts while logged in. The easiest way to find sockpuppets. ♪♫Alucard 16♫♪ 13:51, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

Abuse Report

Your last comment on Wikipedia:Abuse reports/129.138.20.124 was nearly 3 months ago. I'm sure you forgot about it, but would you mind updating it, calling it actioned if appropriate? - Rjd0060 (talk) 15:55, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the reminder! The vandal was indeed actioned, and I've now closed out the case. Not sure what else to do besides removing it from the main report page list and updating the case notes. Let me know if I closed it out ok... Dreadstar 16:23, 4 January 2008 (UTC)
I undid your removal. When you complete a report, just add {{ARA|a}} to the bottom of the report page (like this) and then a bot will automatically archive the report, removing it from the main WP:AR page (see here), and will add it to Wikipedia:Abuse reports/Actioned. - Rjd0060 (talk) 16:27, 4 January 2008 (UTC)
Oh, those handy bots! Way cool! Thanks Rjd! Dreadstar 16:30, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

Re: Comment left on AnimalBoy talkpage

The (HANGON) was left on the page, and, per directions, a positive defense of the validity and importance of the band was left on the talkpage for the SECOND iteration of the band's page.

It is the presumptuousness of certain Admins which rankles, we all have fields of ignorance (lack of knowledge), and if one's lack of knowledge about, say, the Garage-rock scene in the Pacific Northwest in the 1980s, happens to be wide and deep, then why in acts of counterintuition, delete contribs which reduce such topical ignorance?

I guess I am in one of my "fields of ignorance" because I don't know what you just said. - Rjd0060 (talk) 01:38, 5 January 2008 (UTC)

OK, to put it simply for the standees:

"Admin X" professes an interest to the point of self-declared expertise about, say, "True Crime novels" down to the point of, possibly, having a framed lock of Ann Rule's hair (complete with a notarized C.O.A.).

"Admin X" however, knows NOTHING about the Garage rock scene in the 1980s (inclusive of being ignorant about what model of Vox guitar Danny Demiankow played on "Inside Out".)

YET, said "Admin X", being ignorant about the field of Garage rock, counterintuitively deletes a page contributing to the knowledge about Garage rock.

Begging the question: "Is wikipedia about knowledge or random pissing matches?"

Reply to Abuse Report

I am sorry, I must have missed that requirement. I apologize for the inconvenience. The problem is that the user switch IP over and over, which would make it nearly impossible to post enough warnings to get even one of the addresses blocked. But thanks anyway, I will try my best! Do you have any suggestions on how to go about this? It is clearly the same user as I have seen the same changes being made from different addresses. --τις (talk) 21:26, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for your help. I have to apologize again, because I thought my abuse report could result in a range block. I guess I will have to read ahead a bit before starting to file reports. :) I just got so frustrated when the pages were vandalized much faster than I could revert them, especially when taking all the IP addresses into account. However, as the vandalism is not active at the moment, I now had the time to add warnings on nine of the user pages. Hopefully, this will speed up the blocking process the next time. Thanks again! --τις (talk) 23:28, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

Re: Your username

Heh, well I never really liked Osgood. He only showed up this year but Hasek has gotten better and better.. two straight shutouts. He was also third in the Western Conference (NHL) voting. Besides, he's almost 43 and can play at a top level. Don't expect Luongo calibre, he's out of his prime. Hasek was always a good goalie since 1994. ;) --Hasek is the best (talk) 23:22, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

Probably, depending on the year he has. I've only liked Hasek since 2005...oh well. I hope he gets to the HHOF.--Hasek is the best (talk) 00:32, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

I just realized the proposal has a problem; should it be 30 days after the account has been blocked, or 30 days after the last comment was posted?

Yea, i use Twinkle as well, and over all i really like it, the downside to this program is it does not redirect you to the vandalizers talk page, and does not auto insert the name of the article they vandalized, it must all be done by hand.

Image lab

You've been very helpful for me before, so I come to you to ask --- Do you know where I can find this on Wikipedia. I had come across it a few days ago, and didn't save to my bookmarks, (didn't think I had to) but I can't find it now. It's either called "image lab" or "graphics lab", I forget which, even if I use both in a search, nothing useful comes up. :-/

Also, why is it so difficult to find anything using the search box? There are so many rules/policies and hidden (not intentional) help pages that do not appear when using the search function (so unlike Google). Why is that? And why does Wikipedia not have them all in one place where it is easy for people to find these useful pages, portals and policies? Is there a special prefix or special term one needs to use to find these pages? Thanks in advance. :-) ←GeeAlice 22:39, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for your response, and sorry for not being more clear. As far as the "Image/Graphic lab" I'm referring to, it is similar to the Help Desk or Reference Desk, I think. I'm not quite certain that is the correct name though. It's a "place" where there are users who volunteer time by working on requests creating and cleaning up images/graphics. Does that help clarify? As far as the rest, I was just venting...kinda. lol. ←GeeAlice 00:15, 18 January 2008 (UTC)
YES! That's it. "Maybe you are looking for Wikipedia:Graphic Lab/Images to improve? - Rjd0060...". I guess I was using the plural while searching, as in GraphicS Lab, rather than "Graphic Lab". Although I didn't try that search term. See what I mean about the search function? Anyway, thank you so much for your help. You're awesome! It was driving me crazy. I spend more time looking for "things" and never finding them, than I do editing articles! Thanks again...gracias mucho! :-) ←GeeAlice 00:34, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

Re:revert

This] is probably the most comprehensive debate on the topic, though there have been several more. In short, the compromise solution over the debate is a project-specific variant of WP:ENGVAR. The NHL, and North American sources, do not use diacritics at all in player names. They aren't English characters. It was agreed that for NHL related articles, the NHL's/North American format would be used - no diacritics. Exactly as the names are spelled on the back of their jerseys. For European and international articles, diacritics can be used. Resolute 18:34, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

Myanmar

My edit to the Myanmar article constituted a vital factual correction, not vandalism. Encyclopedias are based on facts, not "consensus."

Maglev Power (talk) 04:29, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

Well, indeed, but for an article of this importance, listing at WP:RM is de facto compulsory.

Your name is certainly familiar to me, and I have your talk page watched for some reason, but neither one of us appears to have posted on the other's talk page at any point. I ask because I'd like some context on your RfA. Sarcasticidealist (talk) 18:55, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

Oh well; I guess I'll have to actually do research before commenting on your RfA. So tragic when that happens (on the surface, you look like a very likely support). Sarcasticidealist (talk) 19:02, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

So happy you asked. There was a totally nn version deleted April 12, 2007 by WKnight. User:04anichols created the article about the parapsychologist on May 17. User:Hurly101 vandailzed it beyond all recognition on January 11 this year. This is the version you tagged and that was deleted by AliveFreeHappy the next day. User:04anichols recreated the parapsychologist version yesterday. Not sure it would pass an AfD, but there it is. . (You're gonna love being able to see the deleted versions.) :) Hope that helps. Cheers, Dlohcierekim 20:31, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

Really, I agree with "backwards Mike Reichold" here, you are gonna love being able to see the deleted contribs. I put the onus on AliveFreeHappy to check a db tagged article's history before simply deleting. Articles get tagged all the time that do not qualify for speedy deletion, trust me. He/she should not have deleted the article, but instead should have reverted back to the most current correct article, and given you a talk page message. But, bygones are bygones. Happy editing, Keeper | 76 20:36, 24 January 2008 (UTC)
You are welcome. Dlohcierekim 20:39, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

RfA thank-spam

Broom icon.svg
Rjd0060/Archive 4, I wish to tender my sincere thanks for your support in my successful request for adminship, which ended with 37 supports, 2 opposes, and 2 neutral. The results of the RfA are extremely bittersweet because of the recent departure of my nominator, Rudget. Hopefully I can live up to his and your expectations. I would especially like to thank Epbr123 and TomStar81 for mentioning that they were preparing to offer me a nomination. The past week has been one of the most stressful weeks in my life, and I appreciate your vote of confidence in me. If you ever need anything, just get in touch. -MBK004 21:04, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

WWWQ

Please see my response to you on the WWWQ discussion page. The listing of that many individuals on the article of a station that has only existed for about seven years sets a dangerous precedent for the expansion of MANY other articles on Wikipedia about stations that have existed for MUCH longer. The main editor of the article is very likely the radio station's current night personality, whose ego is the driving force behind everything he does. I have no problem listing the members of the Bert Show and doing a very basic list of the other FULL-TIME personalities. But to list all of the part-timers, the traffic reporters, and all of the former personalities (making an exception for those who may have gone on to achieve things that justify them having their own Wiki pages) is a little overboard.--InDeBiz1 (talk) 03:07, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

National Tramway Museum tramcar list

I'm afraid i fail to see how it will be useful in any way. It was originally moved because it was deemed that the new name was better. Search terms... all the words are also in the other title. I really cba with RfD, and surely it should be a contested tag rather than removed.

I am prepared to get into all sorts of trouble with this page, 3RR etc. If YOU feel so strongly, then please get a 3O. And, please don't insult my intelligence by brandishing pages about how WP works. I am not stupid. Of course redirects don't have incoming links (then theyd be double-redirects). if you really want a redirect, a better one would be NTM tramcars.

And finally, why would people be looking for a list, when there's a page that outlines individual tramcars?

Speedy tag replaced - thats 2R.

CAT:TEMP deletions

I open multiple CAT:TEMP pages using tabs in my browser, spend some time reviewing all the pages I've opened; then with the pages that should be deleted, I go into the delete screen in all the tabs I've opened, set the reason for deletion in each tab, and when it's all done, go into all my open tabs and press the "delete page" button.

Quick question

Hi. I have a quick question about the Texas Department of Criminal Justice article. I stumbled upon it and found there's loads of issues with it. I consulted another editor (who just tagged it for said issues) who agreed that what is written is basically original research and from the POV of someone who has been incarcerated. On the talk page, a user who admitted to being an ex-offender added the present content which seems like a COI in my opinion. Would I be completely out of line if I rolled back the article to its original version (February 17, 2007)? I would rewrite it, but most of the content that is currently presented cannot be referenced as it is not avaliable to the public and I just don't think what is presented is encyclopedic. Before I made any huge rollbacks, I just wanted to check with an admin first. Thanks! Pinkadelica (talk) 05:31, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the quick reply. I'm an ex-employee of TDCJ so when I read this, I realized how much this is actually someone's opinion and was written as such. I know that having an interest or going through an experience doesn't automatically mean it's a COI but, in my opinion, quite a bit of the article isn't neutral, factual or verifiable. Every prison is different so certain examples are not the norm and can't be proved. I won't rollback the article, but I will be restoring most of the original content if that's ok.

Nat.utoronto

Please ask him to refrain from playing edit wars under this thread:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Republic_of_China_presidential_election%2C_2008

He is letting his political views (pro-KMT) influence his editing and has resorted to playing edit games with me. For example, when I tried to balance his one-side article in support of Ma Ying-jeuo, he cited the "no copying rule". However, while I can understand this rule would allow him to erase long quotations in my edits, he went further to modify other parts of the article not subject to this rule. As a result, I think he is trying to hide under this rule. What I did was to clearly state that Ma Ying-jeuo's proclamation of innocence is under Ma's own beliefs, and therefore it is justified to say "Ma believes" XYZ. Thanks.

HI

If I deserve a warning (I don't think I do), then i am CERTAINLY not the only one who does. Please do not single me out. My edits for the page in question are merely reverting vandalism and hate speech, not that I owe you any explanation. Veritas Aequitas WikiTony (talk) 02:30, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, i swear i looked before i typed that and didn't see it. I still don't think I did anything to deserve a warning. I consider what I did removing vandalism. I update the portal and revert vandalism (see for yourself in my history) on that page on an almost daily basis. Also keep in mind the name of the portal is "current events," so sometimes multiple edits are required in a short period of time, because after all, the information is current. Also, the other editor has recently been warned for typing almost the exact same hateful speech on other pages. Every one of his edits under the IP he uses is an edit bashing Scientology. I really do not care about them or their beliefs but they do not deserve to be badmouthed in a place reserved for contemporary global affairs. I know I owe you no explanation, but it cannot hurt to have my thoughts on the matter in words. There is a time and a place for everything. Current events is not the place for intolerance. Like I said, I add and edit the portal almost daily. this is by no means a claim of ownership, only meaning that I think I know what I am talking about and my opinion on the subject should have some merit over somene whose sole purpose for adding the item is intolerance.

Carnatic Music article that needs extensive corrections

Please post on the discussion of ‘Carnatic Music’ why the 'Carnatic Music' article is locked from editing directly by editors. I am not contesting your decision. Just trying to understand the reasoning. Many editors are making badly needed changes to this article that currently contains distorted information. Detailed discussions are already posted. If it is still decided to lock this article a separate article on ‘Karnataka Classical Music’ needs to be started to state the real facts to Wikipedia readers. Both can be merged later based on fully validated facts and judgment of Admns who are also proven experts (need to disclose their qualifications about the topic on user’s page) on the topic. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Naadapriya (talkcontribs) 19:30, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for your response on my talk page. Your judgment is understandable.

Hi, Rjd. I'd like to thank you for trying to mediation and step in between IZAK and I.

May I respectfully suggest that just as you had no fear with doing what you did earlier, you continue with that attitude and be part of the serious debate about all this at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Judaism#Deletion of synagogue articles with the Judaic editors who have become increasingly concerned about your moves and aims with regards to syngagogue articles at this time.

User: Swbc

I noticed you deleted the user page as blatant advertising. I was trying to find the guideline that supports the deletion. I checked Wikipedia:User page. There is some discussion on the talk page but I can not see a deffinitive answer to the deletion of user pages that advertise. I am not disagreeing with the decision I am just looking for clearification for future reference. Thanks in advance. GtstrickyTalk or C 16:20, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

Thanks... It does seem that it could use some clarification somewhere. Again, not disagreeing, but I seem to remember users being told to place content on their user pages (especially in WP:OR or WP:COI situations). It seems that the message has been "this is not appropriate as an article but feel free to put it on your talk page". I think we would let people violate the other speedie criteria (nonsense, test page, blanked page etc). The WP:NOT is a good rational and should possibly be added to the WP:User Page criteria. Anyway... thanks for the info. Have a good one. GtstrickyTalk or C 16:36, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

Thanks. It's not just that it is that mainly those two everywhere I look I keep getting blamed for Article Ownership. Plus I get put down by pete and to an extent RMThompson it just makes everything frustrating. And who uses an excuse that you can't cite premium cable channels? That is just urrg, they are carried on DirecTV and Dish Network plus the top ten cable providers and various smaller cable companies. Just because you have to pay $12-$15 extra for Showtime doesn't mean you can't use it. I will be fine after I calm down. I am just going to edit my little userpage for a while. It is getting too crowded. Thanks for the comment. ♪♫Alucard 16♫♪ 00:14, 22 February 2008 (UTC)

That sounds good. I don't even remember this much drama during Big Brother 8 (U.S.). ♪♫Alucard 16♫♪ 00:25, 22 February 2008 (UTC)

Bonus navboxes on Family Guy episodes

There's an ongoing controversy over whether those additional navboxes at the bottom of Family Guy episode articles are desirable. I think they have all been removed once or twice. Would you care to join the discussion? / edg 04:10, 22 February 2008 (UTC)

I'd be happy to take a look at it. Can you be more specific as to which navboxes you're talking about? Give me an example. - Rjd0060 (talk) 04:16, 22 February 2008 (UTC)

Hi, a few days ago, I appealed a block I had been wrongly issued, and you replied and said reasonably that if I created a new account, there shouldn't be a problem. I have now done this, so therefore, I'm assuming you believe it is appropriate for me to go ahead with my constructive edits to the Maria Sharapova page (bearing in mind the edit logs show I did not reverse 64 edits, the offence I was blocked for), without fear of harrassment from the user BanRay? Thanks Masha4ever (talk) 23:31, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

You' were blocked for trolling, vandalism and disruption and not for directly reverting 64 edits. Again, you can propose your edits on the talk page and wait for green light there, but seeing that there is a clear consensus against your version, you should probably just move on and leave the page as it is. BanRay 23:47, 25 February 2008 (UTC)
No, BanRay, you issued me a warning for reverting 64 edits (Which is not the case - and in fact, are non-admins actually authorised to issue warnings?), then I was blocked for "failing to adhere to the warning", even though it wasn't legit in the first place. If I did not revert 64 edits, please tell me how I trolled or vandalised? I merely put through constructive edits. Masha4ever (talk) 23:51, 25 February 2008 (UTC)
I didn't read your full comment before responding, so just to add to your other comments: is it Wikipedia policy to wait for the green-light? Because I believe Tennis expert didn't several weeks ago when he rewrote the Career section (the action that began this edit dispute). You say concensus is against me - actually, by my count, there's me, Musiclover565, that user who edited earlier today (please don't tell me you're going to accuse him/her of being me/ML565?). In addition, Escape Orbit has seen acknowledged the edits, and presumably saw no problem with them, seeing as he did not revert them. So that actually just leaves you and Tennis expert wanting the other version, doesn't it? Meaning concensus seems to be against you. Masha4ever (talk) 23:58, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

Urgent admin intervention needed at the Hummus article

Hi Rjd: My attention was drawn to the Talk:Hummus page, see Talk:Hummus#Hebrew/jewish/Israeli references and Talk:Hummus#RfC where some users are deploying the worst kind of blatant antisemitic and Anti-Zionist vitriol in violation of WP:HATE and WP:CIVIL, over a minor food article, yet, unbelievable. There are comments there that should be deleted on sight as well. Please check out that page and the violating editors. Thank you, IZAK (talk) 10:59, 26 February 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the help

Big Brother 10 page is back

I just wanted to let you know that the Big Brother 10 (U.S.) page is back. But this time I am not going to put it up for deletion due to the simple fact that Big Brother 10 will be our summer season and the UK already has their page Big Brother 2008 (UK) up for their ninth summer series. There was a discussion about it and it was keep so I feel we should just leave BB10 alone for now plus Survivor has their 17th and 18th season pages up. What do you think? ♪♫Alucard 16♫♪ 21:39, 26 February 2008 (UTC)

Well for now I put a source to the House Calls episode that had Robyn Kass. I do think it is early for both Big Brother 2008 (UK) and Big Brother 10 (U.S.) but my stance is if one is acceptable to keep then the other is too. Plus the UK article doesn't have any sources while ours does. And I personally don't think we should make a fuss right now it is usually one of us that puts it up for deletion anyway. We have Big Brother 9 right now and that is a handful. Plus like I said with Survivor we should just let it say unless someone else slaps it for AfD. ♪♫Alucard 16♫♪ 22:09, 26 February 2008 (UTC)
Thats good. I remembered today that the Friday episode of House Calls had Gretchen & Robyn that day so I watched that episode again today when I seen that the BB10 article came back to life. ♪♫Alucard 16♫♪ 22:15, 26 February 2008 (UTC)

  • Thanks for stepping in. I offered to act as a third party, as they both quite obviously have very different views, and I can offer a neutral point of view. I also tagged the article, it seems to contain mostly original research. Would you agree? Steve Crossin (talk) 16:51, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

Looks like we got our wires crossed. I had already protected it when you issued the decline. I'm new to this (admined last month), so will defer to your judgment. —EncMstr 20:05, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

Given that you seem happy to have the article unprotected, I've gone ahead and done so - I've warned all parties to the content dispute as well. Ryan Postlethwaite 20:14, 28 February 2008 (UTC)
Are you aware that these edits are being made by someone who has been blocked several times from at least 12 different accounts or IPs for disruption and personal attacks? Please see the sock puppet log before dismissing this as an edit war. The person's edits are also being discussed at WP:ANI. Whether you think the geography dispute is vandalism or not, this is a persistent pattern of abuse from a combative contributor who rejects the community's consensus and repeatedly insults people. 72.37.171.164 (talk) 20:46, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

Re: post on my talk page

Well, I have been battling this guy for quite some time. He apparently has access to a dynamic IP assigner, because every so often, a different IP address comes on and starts changing all these different articles' categories from "in Orlando, Florida" to "in Orange County, Florida", as well as saying they are southwest, northwest, etc. of Orlando instead of saying they are near Orlando. I am not the only one who reverts this guy. Someone else does it with an edit summary that says something like "rv per consensus on talk page". I am using huggle, so I don't usually use a custom edit summary. In any case, the guy who is changing articles does so slightly faster than I can revert with huggle, so there is no way he is just doing it with his hands and a keyboard. He is using some sort of a web program to change article en masse.I have no idea what his point is. Saying that Seaworld is in Orlando is the same as saying that Cedar Point is in Sandusky. Neither are technically in those cities, as there is not enough room, but they are near those cities, and thus they are associated with them. Also, I am not an admin, so I do not know why you are telling me you disagree with the page protection. J.delanoygabsadds 20:20, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

What's wrong with correctly categorizing Magic Kindom as being in Orange County?

It is not in the city of Orlando; it is southwest of Orlando in another city called Bay Lake, Florida.
