Corporatocracy page[edit]

Hi Tom, I've never written anybody before on Wiki. I gather from your posts that you might be a former Corporatocracy author and should know that I hope to clean up (remove) most of the complaints there in a few days, which to me seem to be a POV nit-picking tag bomber, as I explain on its Talk page. (I'm fascinated by the apparent relationship between Corporatocracy and regulatory capture, but haven't found a solid link yet.) I expect to get body slammed because the latest attacker seems to be a super editor. If you wrote any of the attacked text I'm sure you could fix it better than me, I mostly just intend to remove the blue whining and prevent the threatened "brimstone" attack/deletion/whatever. Do you know of another original author I should notify, and is this format OK? (I have no personal page.) Cheers!

Hi I worked on the article substantially, years ago, and it has changed substantially since then. It is one of those subjects that will attract controversy with little agreement so I am not inclined to work on it further at this point, but my advice would be to not get attached to any particular version, since it is like trying to build a sandcastle on a stormy beach.--Tomwsulcer (talk) 05:51, 27 October 2018 (UTC)

December 2018[edit]

Information icon Please do not add inappropriate external links to Wikipedia, as you did to Wikipedia. Wikipedia is not a collection of links, nor should it be used for advertising or promotion. Inappropriate links include, but are not limited to, links to personal websites, links to websites with which you are affiliated (whether as a link in article text, or a citation in an article), and links that attract visitors to a website or promote a product. See the external links guideline and spam guideline for further explanations. Because Wikipedia uses the nofollow attribute value, its external links are disregarded by most search engines. If you feel the link should be added to the page, please discuss it on the associated talk page rather than re-adding it. Please do not place links to your speeches on Youtube, or to any other content you produce and/or control, in any Wikipedia article. You are in effect spamming when you do so, since you are promoting viewing of something you have produced, and hence may benefit from your link. This is prohibited on Wikipedia. General Ization Talk 00:01, 30 December 2018 (UTC)

There is neither money nor promotion involved -- it was a free speech, talking about a free topic -- Wikipedia -- which might be helpful to people interested in the subject of Wikipedia, how it works, how to contribute, why it works, how it turns neophytes into quality contributors, and all you've accomplished by deleting the link is to make the world a slightly less informed place for everybody, and by writing your comment above, how to be condescending and uncivil to your fellow Wikipedians.--Tomwsulcer (talk) 03:23, 30 December 2018 (UTC)
My comments were neither uncivil nor condescending, and called your attention to a documented Wikipedia policy. I don't know whether or how you might benefit financially from increased exposure to your speech published on Youtube, but I think you're sophisticated enough (and familiar enough with the principles and policies of Wikipedia) to see how you have at the very least the appearance of a conflict of interest in posting a link to it here. If someone else was to post the link, it might be a different story. General Ization Talk 03:33, 30 December 2018 (UTC)
If you had watched my speech on the genius of Wikipedia, you'd have gathered that I'm an old hand here (9+ years), well versed in the rules, and one who doesn't use Wikipedia to make a buck. So accusing me of a COI, and ramming home rules in boldface above, well sure it's condescending and presumptious and arrogant to say the least. It is not how to treat fellow Wikipedians; if you had thought that the speech was irrelevant or unworthy, you could simply have reverted it with such an explanation, but instead you fingerwagged me like I'm some kind of spammer. There's nothing to sell here; it's about Wikipedia -- a free encyclopedia, its merits, etc etc. I don't make money from these free YouTube videos. Why not watch the speech and perhaps you'll agree that it will be helpful to people seeking to learn how Wikipedia works, and how about adding the link back in?--Tomwsulcer (talk) 04:06, 30 December 2018 (UTC)
I already watched the speech. It's very nice. That's really not the point. We have authors of good books, and academics who write good papers, posting links to their own works throughout Wikipedia; all of them can point out how their products entertain the masses, benefit society, etc. They are still precluded from promoting their works on Wikipedia, and their edits are regularly reverted. The fact that your product pertains to Wikipedia itself does not make it different. My suggestion is that you describe the video at Talk:Wikipedia and see if someone else is willing to post it, the same suggestion we make to others who have an apparent or actual COI. Alternately, if you think I'm genuinely mistaken or mistreating you, we can take it to one of the noticeboards for a community decision. General Ization Talk 04:12, 30 December 2018 (UTC)
Also, I didn't revert your edit with an edit summary that said I thought it was irrelevant or unworthy because that's not why I reverted it. I reverted it because it violates Wikipedia policy, and having done so it was incumbent on me to call your attention to that policy. An edit summary really isn't the appropriate venue to do so; a warning on your Talk page that links to the policies involved is. Our warning templates don't always match the experience level or preferred communications style of the recipient, and for that you have my apology. General Ization Talk 04:32, 30 December 2018 (UTC)
If you re-read your first post in this thread, you might notice a change of tone from the neutral official rule (...Wikipedia... should not be used for advertising or promotion...) to your boldfaced warning (...You are in effect spamming when you do so...) Can you see the change in tone? From neutral to nasty? My speech is neither spam nor advertising nor promotion, although it does urge people to become Wikipedians -- a difficult proposition if our community gets a reputation as a hangout for gruff finger-wagging types.--Tomwsulcer (talk) 12:34, 30 December 2018 (UTC)
I'll need to assume good faith, specifically that you had no intention to profit from the linking of the video of your speech here, despite the fact that there are multiple ways to monetize both Youtube videos and speaking engagements. Likewise, you'll need to assume good faith, specifically that my intent was not to be nasty but to call your attention to a Wikipedia policy I believed you violated, I assumed unknowingly, and the appearance of a conflict of interest. (My "boldfaced" addition – in bold purely to distinguish it from the generic warning template – was intended to explain how exactly I thought you had done so, since you apparently didn't – and still don't – think that the specific policies linked in the template applied to your actions.) Clearly all of this assumption may be a challenge for both of us, but we are called to try. In the mean time, I see you've taken my suggestion and brought up the matter on the article's Talk page, and I'm content to leave the matter there for now. General Ization Talk 18:22, 30 December 2018 (UTC)
Fair enough. I'll assume good faith in that you meant well. If you knew me better, you'd know that what motivates me is readers, not money, in that I like it when stuff I write, or donate as images or diagrams, or speeches, is read or seen or watched. So I choose articles to revamp which have high readership; I declare most of my contributed images as 'public domain' since they are more likely to be copied and seen around the web, even though there are sites on the web where I could sell the images. The coolest thing about knowledge and information is that it can be given away, freely, and everybody benefits, which is why I'm a big advocate of Wikipedia.--Tomwsulcer (talk) 02:26, 31 December 2018 (UTC)

16th Wikipedia Day - Sofia - 20170115-8.jpg

You are invited to join us at Ace Hotel for Wikipedia Day 2019, a Wikipedia celebration and mini-conference as part of the project's global 18th birthday festivities. In addition to the party, the event features keynote presentations, panels, lightning talks, and, of course, open space sessions.

And there will be cake.

We also hope for the participation of our friends from the Free Culture movement and from educational and cultural institutions interested in developing free knowledge projects.

9:30AM - 6:00PM at Ace Hotel, 20 West 29th Street in Manhattan

Thanks[edit]

I appreciate your comments on the Hogg talk page. It's rare that anyone actually acts supportive on here. My experience in writing as a law enforcement officer has been mostly policy, ordinances, and cases I prosecute, so I have to be able to vigorously defend anything I write. That seems to run afoul here sometimes, so I will try to remember that. Thanks. --BobiusPrime (talk) 16:47, 15 January 2019 (UTC)

Yes it can get pretty rough and tumble here, as if the community was a gallery of grumpy grouchy old men, perhaps since there are few incentives to say 'thanks' or even to be polite and civil. Wikipedia is assaulted daily by all kinds of vandals and spammers and a knee-jerk response is to treat everybody (including well-meaning contributors) in a rather harsh manner. As you get more experience here I think you'll find that people can become more collegial; until then, please don't take it personally. We've all been through the ringer, here, on the receiving end of wagging fingers.--Tomwsulcer (talk) 18:32, 15 January 2019 (UTC)

Thursday April 4 and Friday April 5: Translat-a-thon NYC 2019 @ LaGuardia Community College
LaGuardia CC E jeh.jpg

Translat-a-thon NYC 2019 @ LaGuardia Community College is hosting the second annual Wikipedia Translatathon! At this event on Thursday evening and during the day Friday this week, anyone from the public is invited to LaGuardia to join students, professors, and CUNY faculty in translating Wikipedia articles among any languages which attendees understand. Themes for this event include public health and the history of New York City.

New York City has a large immigrant population and great diversity of speakers of various languages. Among all schools in New York City, LaGuardia has the highest percentage of immigrant students, the highest percentage of students who speak a language other than English as their first language, and the greatest representation of language diversity. It is a strength of LaGuardia that it can present "Wikipedia translatathons", which are Wikipedia translation events.
