Aprilia RSV4[edit]

can you take a look at the Aprilia RSV4 page. There is a reference there that needs fixed and not quite sure how. You cant miss it. 72bikers (talk) 00:13, 3 February 2016 (UTC)
Thanks. Working now, on iPad, so difficult to do the lot. Had a whack at firstride. Use this as a model for others. --Pete (talk) 06:04, 3 February 2016 (UTC)
Yep that helped thanks. 72bikers (talk) 06:42, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

Gaming at WP:MOS[edit]

Please just forget the issue; you're topic-banned from the subject, so what others are doing/saying about it shouldn't be your concern. The bruhaha (spelling?) over this subject has been big enough that lots of people will remember the ban and will, quite obviously, be ready to report any infringements by other parties. Nyttend (talk) 15:37, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

Of course. Perhaps you'd like to clarify - for the information of all - just how far you consider this topic ban to extend. As per SMcCandlish, the proposed continuation would not consider any specific words, but the question of how much of WP:TONE might be imported into WP:MOS. In your opinion, is a broad discussion on the style of Wikivoice a breach of a very specific topic ban?
And is a lightweight interjection in a new discussion by one party to an IBAN sufficient to "poison the well" for the other(s)? --Pete (talk) 15:55, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
This is an ordinary topic/interaction ban. I've not previously become involved in the theory of bans, so I can't give you a good answer. SMcCandlish left a good response at my talk page just a minute ago, so you'd do well to read it when you get the chance; I can't put it better. If you want additional input, I suggest that you write up a request for clarification at WP:VP/P, seeking to have people discuss the extent to which I-banned people can edit the same page, participate in discussions, etc. You'll do a lot better if you mention the fact that you already asked me and that I sent you there because I was unable to help.

I don't think it would be right for me to fulfill your request — I requested the block from someone else, rather than performing it myself, because I was afraid I was getting too close to WP:INVOLVED already, and I've hardly gotten farther away from that status.

Motorcycling mayhem[edit]

Hey pete I am still being harassed by that editor. I would appreciate your input. 72bikers (talk) 23:46, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

Thanks, 72bikers! If by "that editor" you mean that editor, you can't discuss him here, even indirectly. You should make a polite mention to the supervising admin, giving diffs of the edits you think are breaches. I'm trusting that Nyttend has a few more clues than I, because I'm in the dark on this. I think stalking the contribs of the other guy in an IBAN is a quick trip to Angstville. --Pete (talk) 02:04, 5 February 2016 (UTC)
Okay. After whipping around various pages, I think I have a clue. First off, I don't really have much knowledge about motorcycles. I have friends who do that for me. They tell me it's all cool, and I take their word for it. When it gets down to the nuts and bolts, maybe another editor could help you harder.
Second, don't try the patience of the supervising admin. If you are being hassled by the other guy, give the details (with diffs) to the admin, and then let them work it out. They likely have more information and experience than you do. If you want to discuss specifics with me, send me an email, otherwise talking here is going to cause trouble. --Pete (talk) 02:20, 5 February 2016 (UTC)
