Support request with team editing experiment project[edit]

Dear tech ambassadors, instead of spamming the Village Pump of each Wikipedia about my tiny project proposal for researching team editing (see here:, I have decided to leave to your own discretion if the matter is relevant enough to inform a wider audience already. I would appreciate if you could appraise if the Wikipedia community you are more familiar with could have interest in testing group editing "on their own grounds" and with their own guidance. In a nutshell: it consists in editing pages as a group instead of as an individual. This social experiment might involve redefining some aspects of the workflow we are all used to, with the hope of creating a more friendly and collaborative environment since editing under a group umbrella creates less social exposure than traditional "individual editing". I send you this message also as a proof that the Inspire Campaign is already gearing up. As said I would appreciate of *you* just a comment on the talk page/endorsement of my project noting your general perception about the idea. Nothing else. Your contribution helps to shape the future! (which I hope it will be very bright, with colors, and Wikipedia everywhere) Regards from User:Micru on meta.

NHRP detaggables[edit]

So, I ended up here: User:The Anome/NHRP detaggables because of this redirect, Skeleton Cave Massacre Site. I recently created Skeleton Cave (Arizona), and when I was linking other pages to the article, I found the detaggables page. In scanning your list, I came across Work, John, House and Mill Site which I then linked to John Work House and Mill Site which has existed since 2006.

It occurred to me that there may be a number of pages already in existence, but since they are not formatted the same as what's on this page, they aren't being identified as being done. I'm trying to think on how to solve this problem. --evrik (talk)

FYI, I didn't get the reping (but I'm watching the page). IIRC, {{ping}}s, etc. only trigger after detecting a string of signature-producing ~'s, or in any edit summary via [[User:...]].   ~ Tom.Reding (talkdgaf)  15:59, 21 May 2021 (UTC)


Hi there! I just wanted to ask about your addition of Straitjacketing (BDSM) to the Index of BDSM articles. As it's currently a redlink (and hence there is no such article) it doesn't fit the requirements for being in the index at the moment. I was wondering if you added it because you plan to create the new article next? - Polly Tunnel (talk) 15:51, 24 May 2021 (UTC)

@Polly Tunnel: yes, and I hope to get around to it in the next 24 hours or so. -- The Anome (talk) 17:42, 24 May 2021 (UTC)

Misuse of notaforum[edit]

I am concerned that your use of notaforum on the talk page of ANOM might be perceived as abusive. The query by the IP clearly was politically motivated, but it was responded to correctly and was in no danger of becoming an extensive off-topic discussion. My question was directed towards improving the article, as it seeks clarification on how the authorities can set up a trap prior to obtaining a warrant. Perhaps you meant to use notaforum on the other IP question? In any case, since none of these sections were devolving into chats, I urge you to undo your edit. Abductive (reasoning) 21:06, 10 June 2021 (UTC)

I've moved your comment out of the collapse box, per your request. My reason for putting it in the box in the first place is that it seemed to be inviting other editors to speculate about warrantless tapping without providing any evidence either for or against the hypothesis, and thus seemed not to have any possibility of leading to improvement of the article. -- The Anome (talk) 21:16, 10 June 2021 (UTC)
