Unfounded accusation[edit]

I cannot see any reason for your edit summary in this edit. /Pieter Kuiper (talk) 09:07, 8 February 2012 (UTC)

Hello Pieter, good you ask, i'll explain. Lately i've discovered that user:Mdd contributed a lot of self promotion on several Wikimedia projects: nl.Wikiquote, nl.Wikipedia and Commons. That's the reason why i've checked some of his contributions also on this wikipedia. The file in question which i deleted is a photograph of a "bookcase" made by Mdd several years ago. So placing this picture, together with his full name is -in my opinion- only done for self promotion, and NOT to enrich/complete Wikipedia. That's why i deleted the file here. regards Saschaporsche (talk) 09:36, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
Saschaporsche, you seem tot accuse me of "placing that picture, together with my full name - which in your opinion- is only done for self promotion". But where is your prove of this accusation? -- Mdd (talk) 09:41, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
@Saschaporsche: I do not know who added the image to the article. Probably someone speaking Dutch, maybe someone who owns a bookcase like this one. But I did check that it had not been added by user:Mdd. /Pieter Kuiper (talk) 12:04, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
I guess the whole point is that Saschaporsche should have checked before making the accusation (here while removing the image) and/or here (in his comment of 09:36, 8 February 2012). So now there is a double unfounded accusation. The next matter is, what to do if this becomes known and/or questioned? The first time Saschaporsche responded in 30 minutes, but now it has been half a day. This is not ok either. I guess the easiest thing to do here is just restore the situation and apologize. -- Mdd (talk) 14:25, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
Hallo everybody, sorry it took some time before i returned here, i was incorrect this time. Mdd did not put that photograph in the article. 'I'm sorry i said that, i see that in the article bookcase the picture is restored.
However Mdd knows damn well were he did lots of things on wikimedia which are not correct. I discussed several "things" already with him, and i expect him to be more careful next time he makes a contribution. (and i myself will make sure that i will not make this mistake again). Furthermore I urgently ask him to edit his profile on linked in where he claims the following :Honors and Awards Wikipedia featured article :Wetenschap (science) on the Dutch Wikipedia in 2008. On wikipedia you can NOT make a claim that you yourself made/wrote an article. This is a project where everybody together builds an article, not one single person. regards Saschaporsche (talk) 20:12, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
That was not a gracious apology. As for LinkedIn, Wikipedia should appreciate that kind of publicity. And it is comparable to what is quite customary here. This wikipedia has templates for it. See for example this user page for a collection. /Pieter Kuiper (talk) 22:06, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
@Saschaporsche, this kind of apologize with new unfounded (of better undefined accusations) is not acceptable. You have no right to start about my linked-in page and a featured article on the Dutch Wikipedia. Real life matters like this should not be brought up, especially if there is no direct relevance, which there is not here. This is not even a matter of the English Wikipedia, but about an article on the Dutch Wikipedia. Just let it be.
More important: We have had related discussion earlier on Wikiquote (see here), where you brought up the same preconceived opinions. Your seems to be convinced that I am just trying to advertise (I mean "reclame maken") my work. In that discussion on Wikiquote, I have already explained I am representing my work. In the matter of the KAST-kast, that is published several times in the regional and national mass media between 1992 and 1998. The object has become a kind of design icon (in the Netherlands) in the 1990s. If you start showing it in Wikipedia ten years later, and it hasn't been for sale that long, you cannot keep saying it is only advertisement.
Things like this should be handled with care. In the Wikiquote discussion earlier, your where not prepared to even start discuss the matter of "advertising versus representation". Instead you came here and started the new accusation of self promotion, pretending: So placing this picture is... NOT to enrich/complete Wikipedia. It would be a good thing if, instead of these (new) accusations, you would start thinking about this matter and further discuss this. -- Mdd (talk) 11:57, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

@pieter kuiper, i disagree with you. On the english wikipedia there may be a "star" system, on dutch wikipedia there is no such system! That's because everybody is contributing to an article, and the article becomes the work of the community! So, i think mdd is wrong in pretending on linkedin that he is the author of a featured article!

@mdd, i am prepared to discuss this item with you, however as you know there are RULES on wikipedia which quote " it is strongly recommended not to write about your own person or company you work for" So, writing about yourself on wikiquote/wikipedia is not recommended/desired. You know that! And that's why your page on wikiquote has been removed since you did write it by yourself. There is nothing more to discuss about this. Saschaporsche (talk) 12:30, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

@Saschaporsche. This discussion doesn't work. You keep bringing up the matter of my linked-in page. And in the matter of Wikiquote you are not telling the whole story:
  • The Wikiquote article has not (yet) been removed, but moved/copied here, which even you approved here, and
  • the original article has been proposed for deletion here twice (26 jan 2012 17:37 by Whaledad / 30 jan 2012 04:01 by Whaledad for speedey deletion) but the hasn't been any decision yet.
This seems to turn into a kind of foul play. Users are being blocked here for less, if I am not mistaken. I never went that road here on the English Wikipedia, and I am not going to start (yet). The thing is that this kind of behavior has been regular on the Dutch Wikipedia, where there is a mayor case going on about that. And I guess you came to Wikiquote and here to put more pressure on that matter. Or just because You took side, and are under the impression that you are doing the right thing. Well it doesn't look like that at all. -- Mdd (talk) 14:58, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

Saschaporsche, isn't it just possible to put the picture back in the article without the text? I do not think there's anything wrong with the picture as such. The Wiki ghost (talk) 08:53, 10 February 2012 (UTC)

hello wikighost, the picture has already returned to the page. Regards Saschaporsche (talk) 11:59, 10 February 2012 (UTC)

Jewish Defense League[edit]

Hello Saschaporsche,

see Talk:Jewish Defense League#Attribution of the picture (and most of the discussion above). There seems to be some kind of deadlock. Do you think you can mediate in some way or do you happen to know others who could? I ask you this because you know most of the users involved and because I think that if those problems could be solved somehow on this wiki, there may also come a solution for the similar problems on nl:wiki. Best regards, The Wiki ghost (talk) 19:22, 10 February 2012 (UTC)

(P.S. by the way, I apologize for not reading the discussion above well enough before I asked something).

dear wiki ghost, sorry i don' t have the time right now to stick my (writing) hand into this bee's nest. ( is that correct English ) . Regards Saschaporsche (talk) 11:46, 11 February 2012 (UTC)

1942 KNILM Douglas DC-3 shootdown[edit]

Hi Sascha – sorry for the delay in replying; I have only just seen your message.

I think that generic Western Australian Museum link was a result of to the information being on a non-linkable/"deep web" page. Whatever the case, you can find relevant pages through the website's search system, such as Carnot Bay DC3 PK-AFV Pelikaan (1942/03/03) and Zero Hour & Carnot Bay.

Unfortunately I can't fix it myself right now as my internet connection is extremely slooooow today and I have a lot of work to do. I will try to do it soon though.

Grant | Talk 09:26, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, i updated the reference on the 1942 KNILM Douglas DC-3 shootdown page. regards Saschaporsche (talk) 17:41, 17 January 2015 (UTC)
