ArbCom Elections 2016: Voting now open![edit]

Scale of justice 2.svg Hello, Petrb. Voting in the 2016 Arbitration Committee elections is open from Monday, 00:00, 21 November through Sunday, 23:59, 4 December to all unblocked users who have registered an account before Wednesday, 00:00, 28 October 2016 and have made at least 150 mainspace edits before Sunday, 00:00, 1 November 2016.

The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to impose binding solutions to disputes between editors, primarily for serious conduct disputes the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the authority to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail.

"Non constructive" contrib deleted[edit]

Hi, my contrib was constructive, I just typed the right info, the ISO language code for Urdu. YOU're not constructive. Bye |89.3.201.163 (talk) 09:21, 4 April 2017 (UTC)

Hello, yes that message was sent by a mistake, I immediately removed it from your talk page. Sorry Petrb (talk) 09:35, 4 April 2017 (UTC)

Reversion of removal of templates[edit]

I reverted your removal or warning templates on User_talk:72.76.109.199. I believe it is totally inappropriate to remove templates for the current month. This deprives administrators from seeing the warning a user has received at a glance.

In fact I think removal of warning templates is generally inadvisable. Archiving them would be much more appropriate.

Hi, do you realize that the person who was using that IP address in the time when you restored the templates is someone completely else than person who these templates were meant to? Possibly a new contributor who just received a bunch of irrelevant templates that they have no idea what they mean. New users don't understand concept of templates, they probably most likely don't even realize these templates are old or they were sent long time ago. They open their talk page, see it for first time in life and see lot of warnings and unfriendly messages that have nothing to do with their actual contribution. Do you think these people will stay on Wikipedia? Petrb (talk) 08:07, 28 August 2017 (UTC)
Hmmm, I think that I disagree with some of your assertions. Let me go through those with which I disagree.
  • The person(s) who who made these edits as IP address 72.76.109.199, with one exception, exclusively has edited film-related articles, the vast majority of which are about the Academy Awards. 72.76.109.199 has also never left an edit summary for any of 900+ edits. I think that is a pretty good indication that this is a single editor.
  • 72.76.109.199's First edit was on 2017-07-16. The first warning template appeared on 2017-07-31, just four weeks ago. I would hardly characterize these as old, & they certainly continue to be pertinent to the current editing.
  • As a member of the Welcoming Committe, I believe that the first thing that should appear on a user's talk page (unless that user has removed it) should be a welcome message. I almost exclusively use Welcome templates used by Twinkle. In this IP user's case, another editor placed a welcome message on 2017-07-30.
  • I do know that this IP editor has seen her/his talk page on 2017-08-12 from this edit s/he made.
While not a Wikipedia standard, as the serial comma states, In American English, a majority of style guides mandate use of the serial comma, including APA style, The Chicago Manual of Style, The MLA Style Manual, Strunk and White's Elements of Style, and the U.S. Government Printing Office Style Manual. IMHO as someone with an English BA & experience with style guides as a former part-time university instructor & reference librarian, they are grammatically proper. While removal of serial commas probably does not rise to the level of vandalism, this behavior certainly can be disruptive, just like unnecessarily changing between Indian, British, or American English, or switching between DMY, MDY, or YMD date formats. I have indicated that I object to this user systematically removing serial commas on the user talk page, yet this editor has not engaged in a discussion, but just continued removing them, although just recently this seems to have done this less frequently. I placed this twice on the Wikipedia:Administrator intervention against vandalism page. The first time resulted in a 31-hour block, the second was merely deleted presumably to clear a backlog that was of lesser priority. When I do revert this editor some of the time, it is usually now with the message Edits include disruptive removal of serial commas by an IP editor without explanation in the edit summary. This editor has not responded to requests on the user talk page to cease this activity. My reversions seem to be slowly having the effect as this IP editor seems to be removing serial commas less & less frequently.
To summarize: As of 2017-08-28, warning templates are not older than four weeks, the first thing on the talk page is a welcome message, there appears to be only a single editor using this IP address at present, & that editor read & edited the user talk page on 2017-08-12.
I do believe that I have done due diligence concerning this IP editor. Face-smile.svg
