"Interests" again[edit]

Tedius, I don't think I need to explain what was very wrong with User:Tedius Zanarukando/Interests, do I? It fails WP:NOT#SOAP, WP:NOT#MYSPACE, it's divisive, it's sexist to the max and beyond, and has absolutely nothing to do with building an encyclopedia. Re. your DRV of last month, I view this as your means of circumventing that. It has now been deleted - Alison 04:34, 24 August 2007 (UTC)

My interests section was based on my upbringing. I cannot accept that I am a sexist. There are some things that many consider "sexist" that are actually good. Decimus Tedius Regio Zanarukando 20:25, 24 August 2007 (UTC)
I'm sure there are. However, they don't belong in your userspace. Please don't do that again - Alison 20:42, 24 August 2007 (UTC)
I am fresh out of the parental home. When I was living in the parental home, I had to conform to my parents' religion. Now, I am trying to distance myself from family, because I do not want to conform to their religion. Decimus Tedius Regio Zanarukando 05:28, 27 August 2007 (UTC)
That's hardly germane to the subject of your userpage contents. This isn't MySpace - Alison 05:49, 27 August 2007 (UTC)

Wikimania in Atlanta![edit]

Wikimania 2008 at Tech.jpg

Hi! I noticed your involvement on U.S. South-related articles, categories and WikiProjects, and I wanted to let you know about a bid we're formulating to get next year's Wikimania held in Atlanta! If you would like to help, be sure to sign your name to the "In Atlanta" section of the Southeast team portion of the bid if you're in town, or to the "Outside Atlanta" section if you still want to help but don't live in the city or the suburbs. If you would like to contribute more, please write on my talk page, the talk page of the bid, or join us at the #wikimania-atlanta IRC chat on freenode.org. Have a great day!

P.S. While this is a template for maximum efficiency, I would appreciate a note on my talk page so I know you got the message, and what you think. This is time-sensitive, so your urgent cooperation is appreciated. :) Mike H. I did "That's hot" first! 04:05, 4 September 2007 (UTC)

Deleted divisive userboxes[edit]

I just deleted several userboxes which used such language as: worst, and depise. After reading your edit summaries of some of the userboxes I think I should clarify. It doesn't matter what specific word you use. If the word connotes dislike then it shouldn't be used per Wikipedia:Userboxes. Say what you like not what you don't like.

With that in mind, you have several other userboxes which should be at least edited due to using a similar tack.

Avoid using: considers, favors, finds, knows, prefers, thinks, wishes, and all such words which lend themselves to negative comparison or other divisive negativity.

An example is: User:Tedius Zanarukando/Userboxes/User Mario overrated.

Just because you used the word "believes", doesn't mean that it's an exception to the guideline.

I hope this helps to clarify. - jc37 01:16, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

Jc37, I disagree with some of your deletions in this case. I have accused you of abuse of administrative power. I believe that Wikipedia's userbox guidelines are too restrictive according to what you have stated. Those guidelines only apply to Template namespace and in the Wikipedia:Userboxes gallery. They do not apply at Wikipedia:Userbox migration or userspace. You have strict standards yourself, and they are stricter than what the Wikipedia policy pages say. You are ignoring the purpose of User namespace. Not only that, but also I feel that Wikipedia policies are going out of hand. The userboxes containing the word "prefers" that I created are not intended to be divisive or to lend itself to negative comparison. Those are only opinion, not blatant criticism. Not all negativity is divisive, and those that connote dislike are not necessarily intended to be divisive. If I disagree with the deletion of that userbox on the grounds of being considered divisive, I put on there "not intended to be divisive." Most Internet forums teach that one has to respect others' opinions. If I dislike something, that does not mean that I will attack someone who likes something I dislike. The phrase "can slightly tolerate" is a neutral verb phrase, meaning neither positive nor negative. The words "believes" and "thinks" are not always divisive or used to suggest negative comparison. One example is "This user thinks that ... is the best ... of all time." That is considered positive, because it is using a positive superlative adjective, basically stating that it is one's favorite thing in a field. I do not create userboxes in Template namespace in any way. I believe that the Userbox policy is going out of hand, by spilling the policies into User namespace. I decided not to userboxes I created into Wikipedia:Userboxes anymore. Decimus Tedius Regio Zanarukando 20:17, 6 September 2007 (UTC)
"I have accused you of abuse of administrative power" - that's a pretty strong statement there. May I suggest that if you believe JC37 has abused hir position of admin, that you take a case to WP:ANI and allow the admin community to review it and act accordingly. Note that the above admin didn't refer to WP:CSD#T1. Personally, I'd look more closely at WP:USER and WP:NOT here, especially given your prior history - Alison 01:15, 7 September 2007 (UTC)
And, BTW, User:Tedius_Zanarukando/Userboxes is not what this site is about. This is no way conducive to building an encyclopedia - Alison 01:53, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

Just to be clear: You accuse me of "abuse of administrative power" for following a policy that you feel is "too restrictive"?

If so, I'll defer to User:Alison's comments above. - jc37 10:30, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

Avoid using: considers, favors, finds, knows, prefers, thinks, wishes, and all such words which lend themselves to negative comparison or other divisive negativity. That sounds too restrictive and possibly polarizing. Polarizing means that it is a passageway to a more restrictive policy, and that could lead to a more restrictive principle saying "Do not state your opinion per Wikipedia:Userboxes at all", meaning that we should not say what we like or dislike at all. I also feel that the Wikipedia Userbox policy giver is a polarizing figure. I do not intend to make divisive statements. "Divisive userboxes" are not in any way conducive to building an encyclopedia. They belong in userspace, but not Template space or Wikipedia:Userboxes gallery. What if I create a userbox saying, "This user feels that the Wikipedia userbox content policy is too restrictive"? Decimus Tedius Regio Zanarukando 19:46, 7 September 2007 (UTC)
If you have issues with policy as it stands today, then you should work to have it changed. That's how the community works. However, disagreeing with it as it stands does not give you carte blanche to ignore it. Again, we're here to write an encyclopedia, not soapbox via our userboxes and userpages - Alison 20:07, 7 September 2007 (UTC)
I have issues with the Wikipedia userbox policy as I find it to be too restrictive and polarizing. Some of the userboxes deleted by Jc37 were created before I discovered how I do userboxes, but those userboxes are not intended to be divisive. I do not intend to soapbox. I do not attack anyone who dislikes my favorite anything. I have been trying to help write an encyclopedia, but much of my work has been deleted, especially on the grounds of allegedly violating Wikipedia's content policies. Decimus Tedius Regio Zanarukando 20:13, 7 September 2007 (UTC)
You may not intend to soapbox, but you are. You may not intend to treat your userspace as a MySpace account .. but you are. Regarding the deletions, you probably should maybe read up on policy. I know you've been here a long time but if your stuff is being deleted according to policy, then something is wrong (and it's probably not the policy). - Alison 20:32, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

Like I said before, I have issues with the Wikipedia userbox policy, feeling that it is too restrictive and possibly polarizing. I feel that 2007 is a bad year for me at Wikipedia. I will just take down the userboxes that Jc37 deleted from the Wikipedia:Userboxes gallery. I am also assuming bad faith when it comes Jc37. Jc37 is allegedly biased against userboxes that suggest preference for Sony-brand video game platforms. I disagree with Jc37's decision. Jc37 allegedly views preference for Sony-brand video game platforms as divisive. Decimus Tedius Regio Zanarukando 20:59, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

"I feel that 2007 is a bad year for me at Wikipedia" - well, you got yourself into a whole lot of hot water due to your blatant sexism and your abuse of userpages and userboxes. Why not just delete the lot, tidy your userpage and get your head down and edit pages? That way, things should get a lot better and you won't be POing a lot of folks here. I'll even design a new page for you if you'll only get rid of all that junk. Take a look at my own. I promise I won't make it too girly or anything ('coz gurls are icky!) - Alison 21:09, 7 September 2007 (UTC)
I am still going to challenge Jc37's deletions. The ones I certainly disagree with are:

Contrary to what Jc37 stated in the deletion log, they are not intended to be divisive. Decimus Tedius Regio Zanarukando 21:20, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

Ugh! This is getting sooo disruptive an time-wasty. WP:DRV is down the hall, second door on the left - Alison 21:25, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

I must agree with you Tedius Zanarukando, I had two of your userboxes on my userpage to show my dislike for Nintendo systems and games. Like you I think the administrators are getting a little too carried away with the userbox policy. If they are going to say this about your userboxes then why not about the non-smoking one, or the one declaring the user is an atheist, or the one about being against video game censorship. If the administrators want to be like this on your userboxes, then I suppose they have a lot more userboxes to delete. Personally I think this should have gone to an AFD like the atheist userbox did, then at least we could have consensus, not administrators abusing their powers. Xtreme racer 01:53, 11 September 2007 (UTC)

Jc37 has made an error concerning speedy deletion. Being potentially divisive according to Wikipedia userbox policy does not qualify for speedy deletion. Consensus is required for that. I also disagree with the negative Smash Bros. character userbox. If a user states that he or she thinks that a character, such as Yoshi as I would say, is the worst Super Smash Bros. character, that means that he or she uses that character as his or her punching bag in the Super Smash Bros. game's Versus mode. I used Yoshi as the argument for that deleted userbox, and Marth as the argument for its positive original. One proverb says, "One man's trash is another man's treasure." Decimus Tedius Regio Zanarukando 20:38, 12 September 2007 (UTC)
  • One proverb says, "One man's trash is another man's treasure."

Yes, which is why suggesting that something is "trash", is divisive. Couldn't have said it better myself.

That aside, I think User:Alison's right. If you have concern enough to seek its reinstatement, see WP:DRV. And if you wish to complain about my actions involving this, see WP:AN/I. - jc37 06:23, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

If the word connotes dislike then it shouldn't be used per Wikipedia:Userboxes. Avoid using: considers, favors, finds, knows, prefers, thinks, wishes, and all such words which lend themselves to negative comparison or other divisive negativity. That policy is a passageway to a restricter policy and could lend itself to calling positivity divisive, thus the term divisive positivity. The positive words such as like, love, and enjoy can also lend themselves to negative comparison or other divisive positivity and negativity. A word that connotes like can be as divisive as a word connotes to dislike. A word that connotes liking is synomously related to a word that connotes preference. This "Potentially divisive userboxes" section of the policy is polarizing. I do not care if someone likes or dislikes a game or film. Thus the policy can end up like saying, "Per Wikipedia:Userboxes, do not state what you like or dislike." Decimus Tedius Regio Zanarukando (talk) 05:27, 30 December 2007 (UTC)

Ayra's Fate[edit]

Some of the information you added about Ayra in List of characters in Fire Emblem: Seisen no Keifu is in violation of WP:NPOV in its current unsourced state. More specifically, "It is not sufficient to discuss an opinion as fact merely by stating 'some people believe...' as is common in political debates. A reliable source supporting that a group holds an opinion must accurately describe how large this group is. In addition, this source should be written by named authors who are considered reliable"(WP:NPOV). Please also see WP:WEASEL. Unless you provide the "many sources differing on [the subject]" showing how her fate is "highly debated" and providing proof that there are "many Fire Emblem fans" who believe she survived, it will be removed. Infernal Inferno 02:05, 16 September 2007 (UTC)

It would be difficult to provide the proof, because such Web sites are most likely in Japanese. I have little knowledge of the Japanese language. It would take someone who can translate to or from Japanese to find the sources. Decimus Tedius Regio Zanarukando 23:17, 19 September 2007 (UTC)
If the sources can't be found, then it is as good as them not existing for the purposes of the verifiability policy on Wikipedia. Though if all the sources are in Japanese, how did you come by the information? Anyways, since it appears that you will not likely find a source, I'm going to remove the unattributable statements at my earliest convenience (unless, of course, someone were to beat me to it.) Infernal Inferno 07:18, 20 September 2007 (UTC)
I did not originally post that information on Ayra's fate. An anonymous editor, who apparently knows Japanese, originally posted that information in the former article. I would have to discuss it at the talk page of the 'List of characters' article. Decimus Tedius Regio Zanarukando 03:54, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

Archived[edit]

Ok, you're using your talk page as a soapbox to write essays to yourself about how women are to blame for everything that's wrong in your life. I know this because you come back to a thread that's 6-weeks old and go on with the same mysogynistic nonsense that you have before. I've now archived your talk page as you can see above. Apart from the misuse of your page, it was becoming unmanageable. Please read Wikipedia:User page before you reply - Alison 17:22, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

Super Mario RPG lists[edit]

Currently, Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars has two lists pertaining to it (List of characters in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, and List of locations in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars). User:TTN decided it would be best to merge the lists into the main article and split Smithy Gang into those articles. I recently merged Smithy Gang into the list of chatacters by removing the non-notable characters, and I have asserted that a cameo section in the list of characters is valid, per Wikipedia:Trivia sections and Wikipedia:Handling trivia that uses Alex Trebek#Cameos as a good example. I have suggested that we rename the articles per Wikipedia:Requested moves#Requesting potentially controversial moves to something along the lines of Characters of Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars and World of Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars or Mushroom Kingdom (Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars) just like Characters of Final Fantasy VIII and World of Final Fantasy VI or Gaia (Final Fantasy VII). I believe if these articles are to evolve beyond a non-notable list, they should be renamed. For example, List of Final Fantasy VII locations was merged into Gaia (Final Fantasy VII), because a World article is notable, but a simple list of locations is not. That is why there are other secions of the article to make it a World article. It simply has not been renamed yet.

TTN believes the citations in the development and reception sections of the list of locations, books and magazines, are trivial sources. When I added that the 3D perspective of the game is reminicent of Equinox to the main article, TTN removed it since my souce was "the opinions of the Nintendo Power player's guide writers". Although it was actually Nintendo Power magazine, I do believe a magazine is a reliable source, and I gave a page from Next Generation Magazine which also said the same thing. In addition, I was surprized that TTN said that it was from the players guide, since he claims to own the players guide for the game. He has not verified this, since I asked him for citations in May, "Could you look in the back of the Player's Guide and tell me what “types” of … Magic? I forgot what they call it in the game … well, anyways, what types of Special Attack or whatever it is (actually, could you find out what it's called?) there are? I remember some vaguely when I owned the guide like “Fire”, “Jump”, “Electricity?”, etc. Could you provide a citation, like the page number with a quote in context?" TTN replied that he was going to "get to it" (User talk:TTN/Archive 5#List of locations in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars). TTN claims the player's guide is "at the bottom of a box that's behind at least five others in a cramped space". Seeing that TTN did not recognize that the page was not from the player's guide when I provided a scan of the page in question from Nintendo Power shocked me. However, I have continued to assume good faith by not questioning TTN's honesty.

Per Wikipedia:Consensus#Consensus can change, I have offered five different reasonable, temporary compromises that might integrate my idea with TTN's.

  1. Go over the list of characters so we can delete non–notable characters
  2. Rename the articles by following the steps at Wikipedia:Requested moves#Requesting potentially controversial moves.
  3. Cut down the geography section list of locations by cutting it into the regional maps the adventures use when traveling from one to another. I can get pictures and write the fair use rationals, and someone can cut down the text that has no citation and does not allude to other media.
  4. Write the concept and creation and reception sections for the list of characters
  5. Write the concept and creation section for the main article

TTN rejected my compromise because it still keeps the articles. I agreed I would consider a redirect, but Wikipedia:Article size does not allow that, since the list of locations is currently 82 KB long. Instead, I agreed to help cut down the geography section that is the bulk of the article, but TTN rejected that as well because TTN states, "I am not interested in working on the article in regards to improving it." and "get past this "having sources automatically means that this information is good" mentality." TTN states, "I don't think they have or will ever assert notability." I have replied with, "Wikipedia is not a crystal ball, so if you don't think the articles will ever assert notability, we cannot yet know this, per Wikipedia:Arguments to avoid in deletion discussions#I don't like it.

Would you please take a look at Talk:Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars and give us your thoughts? Taric25 01:39, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:BattletoadsNESTitle.png)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:BattletoadsNESTitle.png. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BetacommandBot 18:56, 10 October 2007 (UTC)

I added the image back into the article as a screenshot so it wouldn't be deleted. You're welcome! Taric25 08:52, 11 October 2007 (UTC)

Don't forget to save us all a piece of cake!

I find your beliefs about women interesting[edit]

From your (z2.invisionfree.com/TZ_VG_Coalition/index.php?showtopic=835) messageboard post, I find your beliefs interesting, certainly, although I wouldn't be quick to agree with all of them. You can be criticised for claiming that what you say is 'fact', whilst at the same time accusing feminists of dogmatism - they could quite easily say that it's you who's being dogmatic.

That having been said, I as a heterosexual male appreciate femininity in women, but do not feel that I should have the right to force that on other people. I find the concept of masculism interesting, and if I looked into it more closely I may well end up believing that I do agree with it. I like your idea that long hair is more attractive than short hair, and that brunettes (especially brown eyed brunettes) are more attractive than blondes - that much I would agree with as a matter of my own personal preference, but who would I be to enforce that preference on women or anyone else? As for the idea that women should wear skirts, and have bare legs, that is even more controversial in libertarian terms, and I'm not sure I would agree with a society in which women were forced to wear skirts and have bare legs. Yes, I think femininity and submissiveness as character traits in women are sexually appealing - but that's just me. I'd like to have someone tell me that my libertarian views are in fact harmful, because maybe I'm starting to believe it.

I see that some of your userboxes were removed for their divisive content. That's Wikipedia for you - WP:SOAP is part of a policy. Still, I think that we should adopt a more relaxed approach to Wikipedia userspace and nomination for deletion.

As I said, your views are interesting and I'm not criticising you directly for them - but I would like to know why you believe these things.-h i s s p a c e r e s e a r c h 00:25, 16 November 2007 (UTC)

Also, I can't relate fully to everything in that post, because some of it is inapplicable outside of the United States.--h i s s p a c e r e s e a r c h 00:33, 16 November 2007 (UTC)
Also, as for you being a proponent of nudism - how would you get around the fact that clothes are necessary in many parts of the world for our species to keep warm? Where I live, there is no time of the year when nudity in public would be practical for the reason that it would be too cold.-h i s s p a c e r e s e a r c h 00:37, 16 November 2007 (UTC)
It is wrong to discriminate against men or view such discrimination as acceptable. Believing or teaching that discrimination against men is acceptable and that discrimination against women is unacceptable constitutes discrimination against men. Such teaching is called reverse sexist doctrine. - I agree 100% with you on this point.--h i s s p a c e r e s e a r c h 00:39, 16 November 2007 (UTC)
OK, I understand that you are a libertarian now, but I don't see how libertarianism fits with enforcement of rules on women's dress code, looks and behaviour.--h i s s p a c e r e s e a r c h 00:43, 16 November 2007 (UTC)
And if anyone wants to remove this for WP:NOT#FORUM, then chill out a bit. Wikipedia is a community has the right to trump WP:NOT#FORUM at times if it helps editors understand each other.-h i s s p a c e r e s e a r c h 00:49, 16 November 2007 (UTC)
Ah, nope. WP:NOT is a policy document and is binding. Wikipedia is a community is an essay, and is not. the problem here is that Tedius regularly trots out this diatribe for anyone who will listen. Apart from its being highly offensive & just plain factually wrong, it's not in any way conducive to building an encyclopedia - Alison 06:09, 17 November 2007 (UTC)

I am politically moderate, that is, between libertarian and authoritarian, but I am leaning towards libertarian. For one thing, according to the fifth tenet in that forum post, I am opposed to media censorship. Supporting nudism is characteristic of libertarianism. I am libertarian according to the Political Compass. That message board post at my board does not say that women should wear bare legs. It specifically rules out women fashioning themselves after men, such as wearing short hair or being bald or wearing trousers. I am against the idea of women wearing their hair short, not only that long hair is more attractive on women, but for a more real reason, as stated elsewhere in that message board. The idea of short hair for women is divisive and magnifies looksism. I found that short hair is massively overrated and that very long hair is highly underrated. I am saddened that very long hair is often frowned upon in makeover shows. Those makeover shows, like the Maury Povich show and other talk shows, Ambush Makeover, and What Not to Wear, are garbage, especially for long hair fans. For my views on women's clothing, it is all right for women to wear long skirts/dresses, knee-length skirts/dresses, miniskirts, shorts, leggings, hosiery, or thongs, or to be nude, but it is not all right for women to trousers. Women wearing that short hair is a gesture of a woman showing health-unconsciousness, defiance, dissatisfaction, despair, what not. I believe that non-African-American heterosexual women should wear their hair at least bra-strap length, and that relaxed-haired African-American women should wear at least medium hair. I am against the nudity taboo, not clothing in general. The nudity taboo is destructive and divisive. I am not against women in hosiery, especially if the weather demands hosiery. I understand that clothing should be worn if the weather demands it, and I have nothing against that. I just forgot to address about the weather demanding clothing, so I just corrected that in the message board post. I am only against wearing clothes in settings where nudity is practical (such as beaches and water parks and other recreational settings in warm weather) or forcing people to do so. I have found such practice to be destructive and divisive. Contrary to popular belief, I found that body modesty actually adds to sexual interest and desire. I disagree with some of the userbox deletions, such as video game console related ones. According to what I have heard about the userbox policy, "divisive userbox" rule applies only in template namespace, not to my userspace. The administrator who deleted them (jc37) got too carried away with the userbox policy, and I have accused the administrator of being biased against userboxes favoring Sony-brand video game platforms. Decimus Tedius Regio Zanarukando 01:17, 16 November 2007 (UTC)

Good grief - not another sexist diatribe. You never miss a moment, do you? - Alison 02:48, 16 November 2007 (UTC)
I cannot accept that I am a sexist when it comes to my views on women's fashion. If you call those as sexist, then you are labeled a butch feminist. As my userbox page states, I do not believe in romantic love, so you must not expect me to have a wife. Decimus Tedius Regio Zanarukando 04:23, 16 November 2007 (UTC)
lol!! Plus ça changes ... - Alison 04:48, 16 November 2007 (UTC)
How can you not believe you're sexist? You think it's ok to control every aspect of a woman's life, and that isn't sexism? Hypocrite. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.104.111.174 (talk) 15:06, 16 November 2007 (UTC)
Tedius, it's been over a week and you're still editing your "speech" above. Please stop with the sexist nonsense - Alison 21:35, 22 November 2007 (UTC)
No, I still cannot accept that I am a sexist. So, you stop with that feminist nonsense. Decimus Tedius Regio Zanarukando (talk) 01:02, 24 November 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:TalesofPhantasiaBattleScreenPSOne.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:TalesofPhantasiaBattleScreenPSOne.png. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. • Lawrence Cohen 06:12, 21 November 2007 (UTC)

2007: A Bad Year for Wikipedia[edit]

Throughout 2007, Wikipedia policies have been going out of hand. I have witnessed wikipurges, such as mass article deletions and merge-to-list incidents. There have even been attacks against my userpage. The key players in these incidents include TTN and jc37. Those users are too strict to me. As a result, sectors of Wikipedia are being turned into eyesores to me. Decimus Tedius Regio Zanarukando 05:36, 2 December 2007 (UTC)

Still annoyed with jc37 about your userboxes? Did you take it to DRV as suggested? - Alison 05:53, 2 December 2007 (UTC)
Not only that, but I am also annoyed with TTN about demand for out-of-universe information on various video game fictional topics, and the merge-to-list efforts. Decimus Tedius Regio Zanarukando 05:56, 2 December 2007 (UTC)
I understand where you're coming from, but many of those articles have very little information to begin with. I would very much appreciate your help or suggestions on the King of Fighters character merge proposal. Nothing is going to through without a consensus, I will see to that personally. Perhaps you could offer insight on what characters should stay separate articles and which should be merged? Zemalia 07:21, 2 December 2007 (UTC)
I object to certain merge-to-list proposals and processes. This has also happened on the Pokémon sector of Wikpedia. Articles on Kyokugenryu practitioners and on Kasumi Todoh, which has mostly out-of-universe information in the trivia section, should remain individual articles. Kyokugenryu practitioner Marco Rodriguez did not appear in a King of Fighters game, so he does not count. Kasumi's father Ryuhaku Todoh did not appear in a King of Fighters game. Articles on major Fatal Fury characters, like Terry Bogard, Mai Shiranui, Andy Bogard, Kim Kaphwan, and Geese Howard, should also remain individual articles. Articles that have too little information to begin with should be merged. The Kyo Kusanagi article should not be merged, but instead rewritten in real-world style. Trivia sections of the articles contain mostly real-world (or behind-the-scenes) information. The articles on characters who are original to King of Fighters series and had only a few appearances in the series are most likely going to be merged into a list. Some of the Wikipedia policies are exclusive to English Wikipedia. I found that the Wikipedia policy contract has gone the way of Anakin Skywalker.
On the Pokémon Project, that merge-to-list effort is controversial and has to be challenged. There is no lack of notability involving Pokémon, regarded that Pokémon is the second best-selling Nintendo game franchise, next to Super Mario. Much of the content in those individual articles on Pokémon are out-of-universe and non-game-guide information. TTN has too strict of a logic when it comes to notability, and that is one problem with that user. One question is to be answered, which is "What about the development of the Pokémon?". I strongly object to wikipurges, such as mass deletion and merge-to-list, on Wikipedia projects involving fictional media originating from the Japanese speaking world. Japanese is a difficult language to learn.

User page[edit]

Tedius - stop misusing your userpage again - it was bad enough last time - Alison 20:39, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

I have stated that Wikipedia is not intended to expound my views in any way. I would just put a warning on there that my views are considered by some to be unorthodox or illogical. Decimus Tedius Regio Zanarukando (talk) 21:06, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

I will not be posting about uncivil views again. I offer an apology for those who are offended. I am aware that my views may sound sensitive and unorthodox to some people. Decimus Tedius Regio Zanarukando (talk) 11:34, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

RFC[edit]

RFC/USER discussion concerning you (Tedius Zanarukando)[edit]

Hello, Tedius Zanarukando. Please be aware that a request for comments has been filed concerning your conduct on Wikipedia. The RFC entry can be found by your name in this list, and the actual discussion can be found at Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Tedius Zanarukando, where you may want to participate.-- Legotech (talk) 05:11, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

I will have to get aware of this discussion. I apologize for all that abuse of userboxes and my userpage. I just feel that the policy may sound too restrictive, so I might have to be more conscious about userboxes. I actually did stop this conduct. Because of this situation that went on in 2007, I have lost some interest in Wikipedia. This RfC discussion is unwarranted. Alison did get me to stop, and I did respond. Decimus Tedius Regio Zanarukando (talk) 11:22, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

I have to say that I don't think its civil to tell more than half the worlds population that they are second class citizens. I am sorry for whatever happened at home that created this hatred in your heart, but it really has no place here....you can sign up for a free blog and say whatever you'd like there, I can help you find a blog host if you'd like. A lot of use have deeply held political, social, and religious views, but Wikipedia is just not the place to air them. Please let me know if I can be of any help. Legotech (talk) 18:26, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

I am not intending to express my views toward the female sex at Wikipedia or any other public Wiki site. I apologize for my statements about the female sex. I left home back in June 2007 in order to get away from whoever is responsible for my views toward the female sex, which includes my parents' church and my relatives who share that church. According to my userpage, I run a message board and I could express my opinion there. As an antifeminist, I have been cyber-persecuted by those feminist extremists, thus the neologism cyber-martyr. I do not know how to sign up for a free blog anyway or find a blog host. I am working on a personal Website, but I do not seem to find a Web host. Decimus Tedius Regio Zanarukando (talk) 20:44, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

You say you don't intend to express your anti views about females here, so you'll be removing those userboxes and those parts from your userpage? As for a blog...google hosts one called Blogger [1] that is free and you can say whatever you'd like there, you are also more likely to find like minds over there where you can do what you like (within the law of course :) ) Let me know if I can help you any more with signing up for Blogger, sorry I can't help with a webhost, but maybe a google search of free webhost could help? Legotech (talk) 21:37, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

I am not the only antifeminist at Wikipedia. You are just forcing the feminist rhetoric on me. Discussion of feminism is a sensitive topic, and it could lend itself to trouble. One problem with my views is that some people mistake antifeminism for misogyny, and such people are radical feminists. Not all women are feminists. Feminism does not represent all women. I found that the feminist claim is a lie. One reason why I do not want women to fashion themselves after men is that they do so mostly on frivolous grounds, such as deliberately alienating between the genders. I am not saying that I am against female employment. I believe that feminism is going to the extreme and going the way that would become worrisome. That userbox on being an antifeminist was not created by me anyway. There are some Wikipedians who are also antifeminist and hold similar views. There may be evidence of fact backing my views in question. I am aware that some Wikipedians are feminist extremists, and that may include you. Can I just explain the content in question? I feel that there are errors in dominant culture that need to be addressed. Decimus Tedius Regio Zanarukando (talk) 03:06, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

Wikipedia isn't the place to fight this battle. The blogs, the web, those are the place to fight this battle. Are you refusing to make the edits to your page? If you are, that makes the whole question quite easy and we can move this discussion back to the RFC. I am trying to help you to find a better place to air and explore your views. You seem to enjoy being an editor here at wikipedia, if you don't want to edit and just want to preach, there are better places for that. Legotech (talk) 06:22, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

I am not trying to preach my views toward women at Wikpedia. All you do is try to change my opinion. I was expressing a summary of my opinion on my userpage, but not preach it or force it on anyone else at Wikipedia. I did not come here to promote my personal opinion. So why use the RfC against me? Those userboxes are just showing beliefs in a concise way. Those userboxes are nothing new on my userpage, and my beliefs concerning women are nothing new. You sound like a feminist extremist. Those userbox are just expressing what I am, what I do, and what I believe or support. Those userboxes created by me are not necessarily endorsed by Wikipedia. Decimus Tedius Regio Zanarukando (talk) 08:32, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

The great thing about the internet is nobody knows you are a dog. You don't know if I'm male or female, Roman Catholic or Buddhist, Purple or Orange...yet you decide to call me names instead of accepting that I'm trying to help you find more logical places to air your views so that you don't have to have these discussions every few weeks and can concentrate on making the best articles and edits you can. Legotech (talk) 09:01, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

I do not bring up the discussions at Wikipedia myself. It is anyone else who comes to my discussion page who brings them up. I would not search for fellow users just to force my views on them; that is not what I do at Wikipedia. I came here to help contribute to an encyclopedia the best way I know how, not to preach my opinion on others. I am willing to settle this battle on a blog as you suggested. Decimus Tedius Regio Zanarukando (talk) 09:07, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

I noticed you changed your front page a little, but have yet to remove the userboxes...can I give you a quote from Jimbo Wales(the creator of wikipedia)?: I wonder if you might consider...

I wonder if you might consider simply removing your political/religious/etc. userboxes and asking others to do the same. This seems to me to be the best way to quickly and easily end the userbox wars. Userboxes of a political or, more broadly, polemical, nature are bad for the project. They are attractive to the wrong kinds of people, and they give visitors the wrong idea of what it means to be a Wikipedian. I think rather than us having to go through a mass deletion (which is what is likely to happen if the userbox fad doesn't go away), it will be better to simply change the culture, one person at a time. Will you help me?--Jimbo Wales 10:53, 21 January 2006 (UTC) I'm sure you don't want to contribute to Jimbo deciding to get rid of all the userboxes? Legotech (talk) 21:46, 22 January 2008 (UTC)

User page[edit]

Hi,

You're abusing your user page again. Please stop it. Also inb4 tl;dr reply. 78.91.39.225 (talk) 18:25, 23 January 2008 (UTC)

No, I am NOT abusing my userpage. I have already stopped. I have not been using my userpage lately, at least frequently. I am using a blog to express my opinion. Decimus Tedius Regio Zanarukando (talk) 20:45, 23 January 2008 (UTC)

The point that anon and I are both trying to make is that its not enough to just stop posting new stuff, you actually have to clean up and remove the objectionable material. I undrstand that as an asperger's person we have to work extra hard to make sure that our behavior falls within what is acceptable to the world at large because we don't always see what we are doing as wrong. Legotech (talk) 00:01, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

Tedius - we've been over this again and again. Your userpage is offensive to many editors here, it's not germane to the purpose of Wikipedia, it's divisive, it's sexist, it's pushing a "doctrine". In short, it has no place here. If you don't do *something* to remedy this, I will help Legotech to file an RfC, will co-sign it and will ensure it goes through the process. This is not the time to blame your parents or their religion or whatever, nor to write a long essay by way of rebuttal (spanning several weeks), nor to start calling people "militant feminists", as you have all of these things before. It's time to act. Clean up your userpage and give up the sexist nonsense. It's offensive to the community; not just to women, but to just about every thinking person - Alison 00:39, 24 January 2008 (UTC)
I am so confused about this. I stand for my beliefs, but I am not trying to promote them here. These beliefs are not in any way intended to be offensive, because they are just my beliefs. I feel that feminist ideology is a flaw in dominant culture. Not everyone in the community was offended by the allegedly offensive material. That material was offensive only to those who were indoctrinated to be offended by it. No one was born to be offended by it. Decimus Tedius Regio Zanarukando (talk) 05:44, 24 January 2008 (UTC)
Nobody is going to censure you for how you feel; however, preaching it (your "doctrine") as you are is not acceptable. We're a collaborative, encyclopedia-building workgroup and there's no room for userboxes which make statements about what women should or should not wear, and what length our hair should be (unless we're Indian, of course), etc, etc. On one hand, you "blame" your parents for your sexism while on the other, you revel in it. Either way, it's not appropriate here. I've plenty of views of my own, and I'm sure there are many you will not like, but I do not peddle them here on Wikipedia, as you do - Alison 05:51, 24 January 2008 (UTC)
Where can I discuss the beliefs? We do not call that sexist nonsense. We call it politically incorrect but true. I still stand up to my beliefs on female fashion, and apply it just in the country where I live (United States of America). However, I do not directly convince anynoe to follow my beliefs. I know that they may be offensive to many, but I can assert them as true. Telling the truth can be offensive to some. I am still going to fight this fashion battle, through a blog. Anyone can participate in it. (Unless we're Indian should be unless we're Chinese or Indian). Decimus Tedius Regio Zanarukando (talk) 06:13, 24 January 2008 (UTC)
But not on Wikipedia. Ok, this has gone on far too long now and it's now time to take this matter to the community. I can see nothing will be achieved here and you view this as some kind of "battle" and refuse to show consideration for other editors - Alison 06:20, 24 January 2008 (UTC)
It can be achieved here. I am trying to show consideration for other editors. I am aware that I am under RfC threat. We do not need to take this matter to the community. I will not fight this battle on Wikipedia. I will fight it elsewhere, such as a blog. Let us put a stop to this feminist attack. I am not letting this RfC threat happen. Decimus Tedius Regio Zanarukando (talk) 06:22, 24 January 2008 (UTC)
It is not a "threat", it is not a "battle" and it is certainly not a "feminist attack". Please try to treat your fellow-editors with a little respect here. I can see that nothing is going to be achieved so long as you see this as some kind of feminist "battle" instead of what it actually is; your being offensive to others and misusing your userspace to preach your rather distasteful "doctrine" - Alison 06:29, 24 January 2008 (UTC)
I am not trying to enforce that controversial doctrine at Wikipedia. What about nudism? That is also a similar story. I am willing to treat fellow Wikipedians, male and female, with respect. What is said in my userbox is just my opinion, not a bible. I just have to put a disclaimer to my userpage. Decimus Tedius Regio Zanarukando (talk) 06:37, 24 January 2008 (UTC)
No, it's not enough. If I have distasteful and downright offensive opinions on ... oh, I dunno - the colour of a person's skin, for example, it is not acceptable for me to expound these here, disclaimers or not, regardless of whether I believe them to be "true" or not. It's that simple. Wikipedia is a collaborative environment where people work together, regardless of sex or skin colour or whatever. As a private website, freedom of speech rules do not apply here. What you're doing here is not conducive to working with others. Either way, your arguing here might best be done in front of the general community at this stage. You're not going to change of your own accord, so input from a wider audience might be just what's needed here - Alison 06:59, 24 January 2008 (UTC)
I am not the only user who has the same beliefs in this case. I have other things to do than to deal with this radical feminist act. Wikipedia is a bad place to settle this dispute. At least you not intending that I face disciplinary action. I have just edited my userbox subpage while this discussion was going on. Some of my opinions may appear to be distasteful, but they have been scientifically proven true. The same content rules at Wikipedia do not apply elsewhere on the Internet. The Internet is a democracy, not a dictatorship. Decimus Tedius Regio Zanarukando (talk) 07:44, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

Final warning[edit]

Please stop, now. Calling other users offensive slang terms is completely unacceptable. If you continue to insult other users and expound controversial views that many people have found insulting and asked you to stop, you will be blocked. Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, not a personal soapbox. krimpet 08:28, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

I apologize for insulting other users expounding my controversial views that many find objectionable. I will never do that again. I had enough threats of punishment as it is. Okay? Decimus Tedius Regio Zanarukando (talk) 09:11, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

There is a simple fix...remove the objectionable material...take it to the blog I helped you to find. I think I've been quite reasonable in trying to help you to find someplace more appropriate so that you can concentrate on editing here. Legotech (talk) 09:37, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

It seems you have still been pushing the issue both on- and off-wiki. Wikipedia is emphatically not a soapbox to promote your misogynistic views and insult Wikipedians solely due to their gender, and you have been warned this many times. You have been blocked indefinitely. krimpet 15:39, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

No, I am not doing this here at Wikipedia. I am doing at my blog. Do not worry what I do there. I am not using Wikipedia as a soapboax. That politically incorrect content on my userpage is already deleted. There is no need to block me. If you do not want to read my blog, then you do not have to. Blocking me from Wikipedia will do you no good, so I have my blog. (This user was unblocked sometime in March 2008.) Decimus Tedius Regio Zanarukando (talk) 20:52, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

Legal threats[edit]

"I will sue Wikipedia" - please read WP:NLT to understand what's wrong with that statement. As a result of these legal threats, you must remain blocked per policy - Alison 20:55, 29 January 2008 (UTC)
I am just kidding. I will not do any legal threats. Decimus Tedius Regio Zanarukando (talk) 21:09, 29 January 2008 (UTC)
Then you are still indefinitely blocked. You may request your block be reviewed by using the {{unblock|whatever reason}} template and another administrator will review and act accordingly - Alison 21:11, 29 January 2008 (UTC)
I was unblocked on March 15, 2009, after contesting the block via e-mail. Decimus Tedius Regio Zanarukando (talk) 23:22, 22 November 2008 (UTC)
...So you were unblocked in the future? --74.59.226.182 (talk) 03:33, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
No, that was a typographical error. The actual unblock date is March 15, 2008. Decimus Tedius Regio Zanarukando (talk) 04:05, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

I am undecided about getting unblocked[edit]

My future at Wikipedia is uncertain. I am currently undecided about getting unblocked. For the time being, I have no plans to request unblock. The case will need discussion. As of now, there is a little chance that it will be accepted, and I would not want it to be rejected. I feel that Wikipedia's internal policies are going too far. It may take years to get this case resolved. Right now, I will have focus on posting at my blog in order to carry out my cause and resolve those major issues that have been getting in my way with cooperating with the community. I have had a shady online past any way. I have had a history of getting banned from a message board, and being criticized by fellow users for my cause. I am nothing new to message boards. My online life goes all the way back to August 2001. I have a bad feeling about Krimpet. The issue that led to me being blocked by Krimpet is a growing issue. This block will cause a collateral damage to people living in Anderson County, South Carolina. Decimus Tedius Regio Zanarukando (talk) 23:47, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

Opinion on Wikipedia's policies[edit]

Should I post on my userpage about my opinion on English Wikipedia policies? I believe there is a dark side to Wikipedia policies. I believe that there is a fiction notability controversy involving Pokémon. The idea of Poképrosal is controversial. The biggest examples of the merge-to-list controversy include Mewtwo and Lucario, which have been controversially merged into list articles, although they have very major roles. It can alienate some users from viewing the Pokémon sector of Wikipedia. I feel that user TTN has been applying the WP:FICT policy too strictly and has notability standards set too high.

Please refrain from introducing inappropriate pages, such as Alzheimer’s disease, to Wikipedia. Doing so is not in accordance with our policies. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you. NebY (talk) 20:11, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

Among these four, one user transcluded all of them, claiming he was in second place, third place, disqualified before Final Jeopardy!, and had a six day winning streak. The only other transclusion of "No Final Jeopardy" is from a user whose only contribution was crapflooding his userpage with boxes.

I am working on a more versatile userbox at User:TenPoundHammer/User game show contestant which says simply, "This user was a contestant on [name of show]" I plan to add variables such as "was an x-day champion on," "won x dollars on," "was a contestant on [name of show] and lost," etc. Since almost nobody's using the Jeopardy! boxes, what's your take on mine?
