RE:MOSNUM

I am not the best person to discuss the minutiae of the MOS I'm afraid. I locked the page because ti was the subject of an ongoing edit war which itself has ended up at ARBCOM. It seems that your request does not yet have consensus to be added onto the page yet, for a start, User:Tony1 has replied less than positively. I suggest you let the discussion go on for a little bit before outting in an {{editprotected}} request which is the standard thing to do if a page is protected and you want to edit it.

On a sidenote, why is this page an archive? I strongly suggest that you have your actual talkpage as the main area for discussion. This would mean you gain from the "new messages" bar at the very least, and it wouldn't be confusing for editors. If you have any questions about any of this, don't hesitate to leave a note on my talkpage. Regards. Woody (talk) 12:28, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

My reply to the archive question may be found at User talk:Woody/archive15#Date ranges. For the sake of completeness, it is repeated below:
This is regarding my redirect to a fresh archive from my talk page. Have you ever tried to look up something you left on somebody's talk page only to find yourself, with a link to an archived subsection, needing to search through dozens of archives? I have and it is a frustrating task that nearly crashes my computer. So I thought, "How can we both maintain an ongoing archive system and ensure that the link people have in their contributions will permanently take them to the right discussion?" If I redirect my talk page to a subdirectory that has my current archive and merely change the re-direct address when the page starts to tell me, "It takes xx bytes to load this page, maybe you should archive....", all links to that page will be to the permanent address. I do lose out on the "New messages" thing, which is unfortunate to me, but I thought I was being more mindful of everyone else. :)--Thecurran (talk) 19:55, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

RE:WeaverKid

Oh sorry, here's a link to the block log ([1]). Weaver was blocked as a sockpuppet of User:Sinofdreams/User:User:YoMaSoFat. The Cool Kat (talk) 12:12, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

Also see this User:Barneca/watch/YoMamma6188. What is this about? Is there another weaver sock? Chrislk02 Chris Kreider 15:53, 27 February 2009 (UTC)
Oh, I see what it is about, nevermind. yes, weaverkid is bad and has been blocked. I block his socks on site. He should just be denied as to not encourage him. Just ignore the little kid and he'll go away. Also, is there a reason that your talk page redirects to an archive page? Chrislk02 Chris Kreider 15:57, 27 February 2009 (UTC)
Thank you both, User:The Cool Kat & User:Chrislk02. Thank you for that confirmation. I really do appreciate it. On the subject of my talk page redirecting to an archive, I usually do not need to be notified in real time when someone writes on my talk page so I don't mind losing the warnings. I love the ability however to have a permanent link to any specific conversation I have participated in. I have spent dozens of hours sifting through user archives and article archives trying to find the point to which users have referred. It is even difficult finding what I wrote when I know the date from My Contributions because many archives are not dated but numbered and many are so large they take forever to load. Now, anyone that talks to me has a permanent link to that wikt:convo on their User Contributions page. As soon as i get an edit size warning on my talk page, I can make a new archive. The idea is in its early stages but I hope it catches on. :)--Thecurran (talk) 08:41, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

Re: Me

I am not actually on wikibreak. I am back from a 1/2 year retirement/break, but am not editing as much as I was before that time, which is why I keep the sign.

List of country subdivisions

Hello Thecurran, do you really think this article is a good idea? You are just getting started, with less than 100 entries in the table, and the article is already about 16,000 bytes long. There are over 3000 first-level administrative divisions in the world, so I don't think this approach is scalable. There is already the Table of administrative divisions by country page, which is the top of the hierarchy of all the per-nation articles on administrative divisions. I don't see a need to duplicate that information in a single list. Perhaps you should reconsider. What problem are you trying to solve? Thanks, — Andrwsc (talk · contribs) 21:44, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

Yes, I do think this article is a good idea. It allows side-by-side comparisons of subdivisions of different countries. Table of administrative divisions by country seems to count the number of subdivisions, without actually listing most of them. It is useful and concise but only a handful of provinces, etc. are on it. I did not create this page but I am trying to make it into a useful list. I think it would be useful to compare the population or size of Ontario to that of Illinois, to expand upon [[Category:Ranked lists of country subdivisions]], and to solve the problem of people consistently confusing AU-WA with US-WA, etc.. I think it would be particularly pertinent when applied to the European Union as constituencies that are represented alongside of each other in votes can often be in different countries like in UEFA. I do hope that it is not just a waste of space and I do have good intentions. I would feel disappointed if I had to revert all of it but I would be willing to do so if that is what you and some other admins want. I would not waste your time in an WP:AFD. --Thecurran (talk) 23:10, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

Well! Something broke my template, and i've taken the liberty of removing two "%" characters from my previous notice above, so that it doesn't break everything that accumulates on the rest of the page. What i summarized as "long attempt to redress my errors" is now added at the bottom of the same the same section as before; i hope it will help some.

A tag has been placed on UN list of Non-Self-Governing Territories requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done undersection A3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an article with no content whatsoever, or whose contents consist only of external links, a "See also" section, book references, category tags, template tags, interwiki links, a rephrasing of the title, or an attempt to contact the subject of the article. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references toreliable sources that verify their content. You may wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see theArticle Wizard.

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.

Hi - just wanted to confirm - do you think this is a needed/likely redirect? Thanks.  7  00:18, 17 November 2009 (UTC)

Yes, I do. Warmest Regards, :)--thecurran let it off your chest 03:02, 17 November 2009 (UTC)
Ok - may I ask why? I don't see this used as a common name when I search google. Is this commonly used somewhere specific. Thanks.  7  03:10, 17 November 2009 (UTC)
It is part of the ISO 3166-2:BF. ISO 3166-2 is the country subdivision extension of ISO 3166, which is used by ccTLDs, the ITU, and the UPU, the international media of modern communication. Warmest Regards, :)--thecurran let it off your chest 12:35, 17 November 2009 (UTC)
Wow - knew there was a good reason - sorry for talking in your archive. Thanks.  7  12:37, 17 November 2009 (UTC)
No stress at all! BTW, I would rather people talk here. That way it is easier for everyone to sift through archives. Warmest Regards, :)--thecurran let it off your chest 23:04, 17 November 2009 (UTC)
Ok - well then since you don't mind - I am wondering, is there any plan within this ISO xxxx project to add categories to these redirect pages? I added Category:Redirects from alternative names and Category:Redirects from abbreviations, but it seems like it might be more appropriate to have new categories to indicate that those pages are ISO codes. I am just not sure at what level the categories should be created.  7  23:21, 17 November 2009 (UTC)
That is a great idea. Perhaps it would be a better to start such a category now instead of waiting until the thousands are processed.

Edit questioned

This edit looks questionable. I haven't reverted it, but it looks oversimplified and possibly incorrect.

The Commonwealth of Nations article says, "... These aspects to the relationship were eventually formalised by the Statute of Westminster in 1931 (Australia, New Zealand and Newfoundland had to ratify the statute for it to come into effect; which Newfoundland never did and Australia and New Zealand did in 1942 and 1947 respectively). The word British was dropped when the modern Commonwealth of Nations was formed in April 1949, after the London Declaration."

The Australia article says, "Britain's Statute of Westminster 1931 formally ended most of the constitutional links between Australia and the UK. Australia adopted it in 1942, but backdated it to the beginning of World War II to confirm the validity of legislation passed by the Australian Parliament during the war."

The Canada article says, "Canada is also a constitutional monarchy, with The Crown acting as a symbolic or ceremonial executive.[81][82] The Crown consists of Queen Elizabeth II (legal head of state) and her appointed viceroys, the governor general (acting head of state), and provincial lieutenant-governors, who perform most of the monarch's ceremonial roles."

The New Zealand article says, "Queen Elizabeth II is the head of state and is titled Queen of New Zealand under the Royal Titles Act 1974. She is represented by the Governor-General, whom she appoints on the exclusive advice of the Prime Minister. The current Governor-General is Anand Satyanand."

You might want to take a second look at that edit. Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 03:51, 26 November 2009 (UTC)

TooCuteForWikipedia

Hi. Well, there *is* such a thing as text that is "non-encyclopedic" or with tone that is "inappropriate for wikipedia". This is is exhaustively explained somewhere among the 1,423,557 pages of the Wikpedia Manual of Style and Policies, but I have long forgotten where exactly. Try searching for "What Wkipedia is not", and good luck. But, basically, Wikipedia must not contain anything vaguely resembling humor. Even when discussing comedy and comical literature, one must use the same tone one would use to describe a dissected frog or the classification of basalt rocks. After all, "original humor" (like the CamelCase cartoon, I'm afraid) can be considered a form of "original research" --- another WikiHeresy. Such things are not allowed in WP, not even on User: pages. All the best, --Jorge Stolfi (talk) 06:31, 26 November 2009 (UTC)

To begin with, I agree that the notation I followed too closely resembled WP:OR, so I will leave well enough alone. On the other hand, I disagree with the statements "Wikipedia must not contain anything vaguely resembling humor" & "Such things are not allowed in WP, not even on User: pages". Please do not take offence but the only humorous WP page that specifically addresses humour on WP that I know of to give as evidence is WP:WITCH. I apologize for not having a more appropriate repertoire of WP:MOS.

Flag templates

Please follow the conventions of Wikipedia:WikiProject Flag Template when creating new country data templates. The template name must match the value of the alias value, and we only have redirect aliases for ISO 3166-1 entries, not for ISO 3166-2. The formatting of country data templates is also important, since automated tools are used to maintain them. Thank you — Andrwsc (talk · contribs) 18:54, 30 November 2009 (UTC)

  1. Why is it ISO 3166-1 alpha-3 and not ISO 3166-1 alpha-2?
  2. Why is it ISO 3166-1 and not ISO 3166-2?
  3. Would you delete templates without linking to relevant discussion?
  4. Would you protect the templates of European countries?
  5. Would you delete the templates of developing countries?
  6. Would you put an article up for deletion without discussing it on the talk page?
  7. Would you speak of flag project conventions without pointing to any resolutions?

Again, please stop creating extraneous flag templates (ISO 3166-1 alpha 2 codes). The consensus (for about four years) is that we use the alpha 3 codes only. The extra "bloat" is not needed. —Andrwsc (talk ·contribs) 22:14, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

Request reason:

User:Andrwsc states, I have blocked you for one hour for disruptive editing but the user does not explain how one could presume I violated Wikipedia:Blocking policy#Disruptionand my edits do not fall under Wikipedia:Redirect#Abusive redirects nor any problem inWikipedia:FILE, which is linked to in the introduction for non-article redirects. Every single one of those redirects is one I am about to use in editing List of country subdivisions to trim it down because User:Andrwsc submitted it for a Wikipedia:Articles for deletionon the grounds that it was too bulky. User:Andrwsc did so without attempting cleanup, merging, or even discussion in direct contravention ofWikipedia:Deletion_policy#Alternatives_to_deletion. User:Andrwsc consistently chose not to respond and then said a reason to block me was that I will not engage in discussion. On the contrary, I was directly responsive to all of User:Andrwsc's edits on my talk page and on my archive page (cf. User talk:Thecurran/Archive 2009#List of country subdivisions, User talk:Thecurran/Archive 2009#Flag Templates, and User talk:Thecurran/Archive 2009#Flag Templates 2.0). It was User:Andrwsc instead who has not responded to any of those responses.User:Andrwsc blocked me without warning me on either of those pages. The only reference I can find to intimate his intent is less than thirfifteen minutesand twenty-two seconds beforehand on User talk:Andrwsc#If I left you a message: please answer on your talk page.2C as I am watching it.. I am sure we are not obliged to check other user's talk pages more frequently than every fifteen and a half minutes.User:Andrwsc says the user told me to stop creating this type of redirect, according to project consensus but the user simply chooses not to respond when I ask for a single example of when this WP:CONSENSUS was reached.

Thanks for uploading File:NG-KN.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image 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 images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Wikipedia:Admin_coaching/Requests_for_Coaching

Thank you for updating your entry on the above page to show you visited!

I have renumbered the current requests list: the request's number will remain the same - otherwise, there are problems if someone on the older requests visits - for example, ThinkBlue visited the page today - and they are number 7... where do they go?

A request keeping the same number all the time means that people on the older requests list can just move their entry to the current requests list in numerical order without having to re-number all the entries. All new requests will just use the next number in sequence (for example, if NoSuchUser decided to add their name to the list, they would use number 123.

In that way, even if people's requests are removed (either because they start coaching, or no longer want it), although there will be gaps, no one needs to renumber any requests.

I have also proposed that anyone who does not visit the page in 6 months will have their request removed. If you want to comment on this, please feel free to comment here. Alternatively feel free to contact me!

I thought I'd better let you know - I didn't want you to think that I'd renumbered it for the sake of it, there is logic there!
