Israel Military[edit]

You reverted a change that I made to Refusal to Serve in the Israeli Military article. However, I did not make any changes to the Refusal to Serve in the Israeli Military article! So I think you perhaps left a message at the wrong address, thank you :) long live Palestine! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:18, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

Just an FYI[edit]

You left a complaint on the user page in regards to a recent edit of Mark Levin. I just wanted to let you know that this IP belongs to an entire county wide library consortium. Thousands of people frequent our libraries pub pc's daily. So just in case you see this IP in the future, just remember it's not one person LOL. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:11, 16 April 2013 (UTC)


Hi i see you've edited out my additions regarding the Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffaloes and the IOOF. Just because your not privy to certain archives don't mean you have the right to go about and doctor history towards you way of thinking. Its a well known fact that Tom Skinner, was an Oddfellow in Auckland and it should be mentioned because the IOOF were a MAJOR organization in their day and deserve a bit of publicity same too with the RAOB. As for Sir Basil Arthur, Ive actually seen the article which appeared in a local Timaru paper during the 1960's that mentioned Sir Basil as being a staunch member of the Royal Antediluvian Order Buffaloes, and old members have confirmed this. Even when he was in Parliament he still attended lodge meetings when he was able. As for Bill Rowling, old members of the RAOB in New Zealand well recall Bill in Lodge meetings. He was initiated into Nikau Lodge in the 1950s in Northland and attended meetings in various lodges including in Motueka Lodge. I actually have spent many hours talking to old members of the Buffs and then doing research through the Buffaloe Archives. Most if not all my information is privately sourced and is not public domain stuff. I like to share these little insights with you because all too often history becomes one sided. These historical figures had a life away from politics. One gains a new appreciation for some of these people when one discovers they were more then just a politician or union figure but actually put back into their community through such ancient and honorable fellowships as the RAOB and IOOF respectively.

Many thanks, Trusilver, for all you do on Wikipedia, especially keeping my personal pages free of vandalism. Regards, Pinethicket (talk) 23:25, 4 September 2012 (UTC)

Thank you very much. It's certainly appreciated. :) Trusilver 00:11, 5 September 2012 (UTC)

how can i ??[edit]

how can i make constructive pages and r u the administrater of wikipedia ???????? — Preceding unsigned comment added by K K Kothari (talkcontribs) 03:23, 6 September 2012 (UTC)

The first thing is to understand that edits like this[1] are totally unacceptable. Trusilver 03:51, 6 September 2012 (UTC)

No source whatsoever.[edit]

That "article" had no source at all. How did it get published to start with? ANY article is better than NO article? Really?A Source Monster (talk) 20:52, 6 September 2012 (UTC)

The correct method of dealing with sourcing problems is to tag it for references, bring up your issue in the talk page, CSD tag it IF there is a copyright issue, or (and here's a really crazy idea) find some sources for it yourself. Blanking an article arbitrarily is NOT an acceptable solution. Have a good day. Trusilver 21:00, 6 September 2012 (UTC)
YES! Dlohcierekim 21:19, 6 September 2012 (UTC)
"or (and here's a really crazy idea) find some sources for it yourself"? Why? I didn't put that pseudo-article up to start with. Did the original publisher follow ""The correct method"? "ANY article is better than NO article?"A Source Monster (talk) 21:30, 6 September 2012 (UTC)
Yes... find some sources. We work as a collective here, the best solution to finding something that is wrong with the encyclopedia is to fix it. I have no intention of arguing with you about it. If you have a problem with the article, then address it with one of the methods I just provided you. This is how we do things here. You can always take up your issue at the reliable sources noticeboard. However, continuing to blank the entire article is going to be futile, as that ANY wikipedian monitoring recent changes will revert a blanked article. Have a good day. Trusilver 21:35, 6 September 2012 (UTC)

@A Source Monster-- YES. Really. It's what we do. Not every article is well sourced and well structured to start with. We don't know such articles need to be deleted till after we try to improve them. We are a collaborative effort. And we never blank someone else's work unless it is required under G10 or BLP or copyright. Dlohcierekim 21:50, 6 September 2012 (UTC)

Tru, thank you for being polite.
I do not have the ability to pursue this. I was interested in the subject, and had no problem with the article itself. But the sloppy method irritated me. Not only was it published without sources, but edited without them, too. Not encyclopedic, was it? So I rocked the boat. Now several real "Wikipedians" are aware of this stuff. I would hope that this article will be improved, or deleted, in the future. So, again, thank you for being polite.
BTW, I am going to post this answer to another polite Wikipedian. Hope that doesn't offend you.A Source Monster (talk) 23:10, 6 September 2012 (UTC)
Not a problem at all. I was just about to go over to the article and put a tag on it for no sources, but User:Dlohcierekim already beat me to it. Trusilver 23:15, 6 September 2012 (UTC)

Perro verde[edit]

not seeing the page blank. Just revert to Spanish. A7 either way. Dlohcierekim 21:19, 6 September 2012 (UTC)

Where did the editor request the page to be deleted per your A7? Go Phightins! (talk) 21:20, 6 September 2012 (UTC)
Ah, sorry about that. I actually had to look this up, as I didn't have the slightest clue what you were talking about. I could have sworn I A7'd this one rather than G7'd it. Thank you both for the quick catch. Trusilver 21:23, 6 September 2012 (UTC)
No problem, it wasn't going to last long anyway. Happy editing, Go Phightins! (talk) 21:25, 6 September 2012 (UTC)
Oh, but never fear! It's back again. G4 this time? :) Trusilver 21:27, 6 September 2012 (UTC)

G4 only for AfD. For all I know, it's notable, so they can try again to get it up. Hopefully in English, w/ 20 verifiable sources Dlohcierekim 21:46, 6 September 2012 (UTC)

Did we ever figure out what Perro Verde translated to English is? Go Phightins! (talk) 21:49, 6 September 2012 (UTC)
Direct translation is "green dog" or possibly "fresh" or "young" dog. Depends on the dialect. Trusilver 22:06, 6 September 2012 (UTC)
Well, that's what I'd have guessed based on my limited Spanish's been a while. Thanks for your help on the article. Go Phightins! (talk) 22:09, 6 September 2012 (UTC)
I don't think it's notable either. I've spent the last twenty minutes using my half-assed ability to read Spanish and I'm not really seeing any obvious sources for it. If the article DOES come back with refs, it would probably be helpful to have someone that speaks better Spanish than I do to check them out, because I'm not finding anything in English. Trusilver 22:12, 6 September 2012 (UTC)
Well, it also should probably be on the Spanish Wikipedia as well. Anyway, thanks. Go Phightins! (talk) 19:46, 7 September 2012 (UTC)

Jaipur Kathak Kendra[edit]

trusilver when are you adding back whatever i have added to wikipage jaipur kathak kendra and you have removed saying you did not find it constructive. i have written a explanation but have not been able to see a change. this is second time you i have tried adding value to wikipedia in years but both times nothing happened and i felt having wasted time — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kathakjaipur (talkcontribs) 06:38, 10 September 2012 (UTC)

To answer your question, adding the telephone number and address of the subject of an article is neither encyclopedic nor appropriate under several policies. Wikipedia is not a directory. Trusilver 06:45, 10 September 2012 (UTC)

Removal of link[edit]

Please restore the link to to the Financial Statement Analysis topic. I believe you made a mistake by removing it. Please look at "Further Reading" #4. It's a homemade website with a very incomplete list of some financial ratios. Why is this link here? I thought the one I added was much more useful to readers.

According to the guidelines, a link may be inserted when it contains helpful/additional info. over and above what the wikipedia page can cover. I think the link I had added fits this well. The site has a huge list of ratio calculations with the actual calculation, description, analysis, and even analysis of a sample financial statement. Please look at this:

Here is one of the entries:


Kenpirok (talk) 23:36, 12 September 2012 (UTC)

I have looked over the article and your site, as well as removed two other links from the article (the one you talked about and another that was far more commercially slanted than yours.) As far as your site goes, it has a lot of useful information on it, and I don't feel that the link to your commercial site is EXTREMELY blatant. Obviously you would like to use Wikipedia as a means to funnel traffic to your site, and you don't go to extremes to hide your COI issue. Also... keeping in mind WP:ADV, I feel that the wealth of information on the site that is not available on the article warrant inclusion. Overall... the content is very informational and the link over to your commercial site is low-key. Unless anyone else has an objection to it, please feel free to re-insert the link. I'm going to remove the warning on your userpage. Trusilver 01:41, 13 September 2012 (UTC)

owl city is a band. and he overenunciates. labeling owl city as musical project is advertising. see — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:54, 17 September 2012 (UTC)

Somebody's blog is not a reliable source. Whether he "overenunciates" or not is irrelevant unless you have a reliable source that suggests it. Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, not a place to editorialize your opinion. Trusilver 12:59, 17 September 2012 (UTC)
even if you are right about enunciating (which i don't think you are), the phrase "musical project" is awful, ask the next 10 editors you interact with (respectable) ones, if 8 or more agree with band, please change it to band. If 7 or less agree with using band vs musical project leave it be. I am betting 80%+ will agree with me. musical project = advertising/marketing
Again, we are entering the realm of your opinion. If you want to publish your opinion, go start a blog. Wikipedia is not a publisher of original thought. As for the musical project part? I couldn't care less if I tried really hard. You see... I have neither heard of, nor am really interested in hearing this band or musical project, or whatever they choose to call themselves. Feel free to change that part if you like, that wasn't why you were being reverted. You were being reverted for the overenunciation part which is non-notable speculation without a reliable source to back it up. Trusilver 12:19, 18 September 2012 (UTC)

Presa de decissions.png

Hi Trusilver. I'm leaving you this message because you have previously been involved as an adopter with Wikipedia's Adopt-a-user program. A clean-up of this program is currently underway, and as part of the process I am trying to find out who is and isn't still interested in remaining an adopter.

If you would prefer not to be part of the adoption program anymore, you need do nothing; when the overhaul of the project is completed your name will be removed from the list of active adopters. However, if you have current adoptees, an active adoption school or an interest in adopting in the near future, then please let us know by signing here.

If you want to remain in the project and can currently take on more adoptees, there is a serious backlog at Category:Wikipedians seeking to be adopted in Adopt-a-user; it would be enormously helpful if you could take on one or two of the users there. Please do keep an eye on the project for upcoming changes, we could use your opinions and your help! Yunshui  09:23, 19 September 2012 (UTC)

Hi Trusilver. Thanks for agreeing to stay on at Adopt-a-user. I've recently updated the list of adopters and I have included you, per your original comments on that page and your comments at User:Yunshui/Overhaul/Adopters staying on. You can see your new profile at the list of adopters. Why not update your profile with an image and maybe have another look at your description? You can also include a list of any adoptees you currently have. If you are also willing to mentor problematic users, possibly as part of a conditional unblock, please include "mentorship=yes" in your profile. Thanks again for all your help.

Was this vandalism?[edit]

Hi Trusilver-- I noticed you warned another user Itsatraplin (talk · contribs) for vandalizing Taenia solium. I looked at their contribution history, and while their edits probably were correctly reverted, edits like [3], [4], or [5] did not appear (to me) as obvious vandalism. Is there something I am missing here, because these looked like legitimate attempts to improve the article (albeit, without appropriate sources). If you could, could you clarify why you thought this was vandalism? I, Jethrobot drop me a line (note: not a bot!) 02:02, 29 October 2012 (UTC)

No, actually that was just a few odd unsourced changes to an article that I incorrectly labelled. Trusilver 23:03, 29 October 2012 (UTC)

Vampire clans[edit]

A while ago (back in 2008, in fact), you voted "proceedural keep" for Tremere, because it was isolated from the rest.

Now it has been a few years and I don't know if you were that interested with it to start with, but I've started a discussion for a group merge of all the clans here. If you have any opinions, it'd be great to hear them. It'd be annoying to just see the discussion die without anyone noticing.

Hi Trusilver. I hope I am contacting you via an appropriate messaging tool. I am brand new to Wikipedia editing. I found you on the list of people willing to mentor. I need a mentor. I know nothing. I want to correct errors of fact on a particular Wikipedia page but I do not know how to go about that in the Wikipedia way. Frankly, I expect the edits will not be taken well by some. On the Wikipedia page I want to edit, the contributors do not seem to be using the Talk page. Hopefully, you will be interested in mentoring me. Since I do not know the first thing about the inner workings of Wikipedia, I will be more likely to get a reply from you if you email to me. My email is Thanks!!! SailinStuff (talk) 03:13, 7 February 2013 (UTC)

I am more than willing to help you and answer any questions you have, but I am not actively mentoring at this time. I have a job which makes my editing time unpredictable.

Vandalism v. Non-Vandalism; Thanks for the Reminder[edit]

Also posted on my talk page as a reply:

Thanks for the comment. Certainly I have made a few mistakes over the past eight months of recent changes patrol. I think they have been few but the goal has to be none, if possible. I suspect most people who do this for a long period of time end up with a few mistakes and a few notices. If an editor brings it to my attention, I will certainly apologize and fix it as best I can.
It is good to be reminded to slow down or about other fine points from time to time to stay on track. Often I immediately double check the edit and warning that I give. I have undone a few of my edits and warnings when I looked more deeply. The thing to do, of course, is to look a little more carefully at edits that are not so obviously vandalism that anyone could disagree with the conclusion.
Also, one can get tripped up by earlier edits (usually by a different IP) which leads to reverting a good edit which appears to be vandalism or reverting back to a bad edit. I have caught a few of those mistakes as well as making a few. I think WtT was mostly concerned with late warnings but I have tried to avoid those, especially by avoiding warnings if I did not do the reversion (barring an edit conflict, which would mean the edit is not late, of course). Thanks again for the reminder. Donner60 (talk) 21:28, 24 May 2013 (UTC)
Undid the revert, cleaned up the spelling as needed, deleted the warning and added an apology and explanation. Donner60 (talk) 21:59, 24 May 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for your service[edit]

I just looked at your user page and see you are Gulf War veteran. I thank you for your service. While this is done more often than it was many years ago, it can never be enough. I also see you are a VFW member. I was honored to be invited to a local VFW meeting this week where Korean War veterans were recognized and given certificates of appreciation. I have been lucky to get to know a few of these gentlemen through my church. Donner60 (talk) 21:32, 24 May 2013 (UTC)

Thank you! Hearing that is always much appreciated. Trusilver 15:51, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

Invitation to look at edits on IQ reference chart[edit]

I see the article IQ reference chart has been tagged for expert review since October 2012. As part of a process of drafting a revision of that article in my user sandbox, I am contacting all Wikipedians who have edited that article since early 2009 for whom I can find a user talk page.

I have read all the diffs of all the edits committed to the article since the beginning of 2009 (since before I started editing Wikipedia). I see the great majority of edits over that span have been vandalism (often by I.P. editors, presumably teenagers, inserting the names of their classmates in charts of IQ classifications) and reversions of vandalism (sometimes automatically by ClueBot). Just a few editors have referred to and cited published reliable sources on the topic of IQ classification. It is dismaying to see that the number of reliable sources cited in the article has actually declined over the last few years. To help the process of finding reliable sources for articles on psychology and related topics, I have been compiling a source list on intelligence since I became a Wikipedian in 2010, and I invite you to make use of those sources as you revise articles on Wikipedia and to suggest further sources for the source on the talk pages of the source list and its subpages. Because the IQ reference chart article has been tagged as needing expert attention for more than half a year, I have opened discussion on the article's talk page about how to fix the article, and I welcome you to join the discussion. The draft I have in my user sandbox shows my current thinking about a reader-friendly, well sourced way to update and improve the article. I invite your comments and especially your suggestions of reliable sources as the updating process proceeds. -- WeijiBaikeBianji (talk, how I edit) 20:53, 28 May 2013 (UTC)

A kitten for you![edit]

Kitten (06) by Ron.jpg

I see that you've stopped editing several months back. I hope you are all right. Just in case, I am sending this wiki-kitten as a reminder that you are missed here. Perhaps it will help you find your way back,

What the hell are you talking about!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!![edit]

You sent me a message accusing me of some kind of "vandalism".

I have no idea what in the world you are talking about. I have never even looked at the Longview Washington page.

Please cease making false accusations and make appropriate apologies immediately. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:54, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

Missing Wikipedians[edit]

Noticed you had a huge edit history, but vanished abruptly. I've added you to the page above to commemorate your service to Wikipedia, but if you for any reason want it removed (or come back to edit), please remember to remove it. If you just want it removed, I suggest logging in, removing it with an edit summary explicitly stating you do not wish to be added, and leaving that as your last edit so people will see it when they come looking to add you. God bless, LazyBastardGuy 16:35, 25 November 2014 (UTC)

Not TOTALLY missing. Just spending very long times without editing. Trusilver 23:37, 19 June 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Wikipedia:WikiProject League of Copyeditors[edit]

Hello, I just came upon this page again while going through a database query of redirects on Wikipedia with the most revisions. I discovered that both the project and talk page had older revisions in your userspace at User:Trusilver/Wikiproject Copyeditor's League and User talk:Trusilver/Wikiproject Copyeditor's League, respectively, and have history-merged the relevant edits into the main project and talk pages. Hope you don't mind. Graham87 12:29, 25 May 2016 (UTC)
