RFA thanks[edit]

Salve, Ugen64!
I wanted to drop you a line to thank you for your support in my successful RFA candidacy. It was very gratifying to see the kind remarks posted in the debate. Ave! PedanticallySpeaking 17:28, Dec 21, 2004 (UTC)

Wishing you the best[edit]

Just dropping you a note wishing you a very Happy Holiday and that this New Year may bring you and your loved ones happiness and lots of joy. Your friend in Wikipedia Tony the Marine


Thanks, I don't quite understand why so many people on wikipedia act so hostile. I used to act like that, but I too a long wikibreak and came back with a renewed outlook towards wikipedia. Perhaps they too could use a wikibreak. マイケル 04:06, Dec 29, 2004 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Thanks for your support on my RFA request. It seems that had I waited one day with self-nominating, it would have succeeded. Jordi· 09:06, 29 Dec 2004 (UTC)


I have not violated 3RR. If you look at the edits of myself and the other editor, they are all, bar one or two, legitimate edits: removing, adding and re-sourcing information. Are you an admin? Slim 02:41, Dec 30, 2004 (UTC)

Call for AMA election[edit]

AMA Member Advocate,

There's a poll currently in the AMA Homepage about making a new AMA Coordinator election. Please, cast your vote there (though it's not mandatory). Any comments you have about this, write it on the AMA Homepage talk page. Cheers, --Neigel von Teighen 18:43, 4 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Proposals for AMA Membership Meeting[edit]

As AMA Coordinator I am requesting that suggestions be placed on Wikipedia:AMA Membership Meeting plans for our first membership meeting, to be held in the near future, (hopefully before any election occurs.) Since we have never had any kind of "official" meeting we need to discuss how this will occur (i.e. Wiki pages or IRC channel), how it will be structured (i.e. meeting agenda) and if there will be any "chair" to supervise the meeting and meeting "secretary" to write up minutes or keep some kind of official record of what transpires. Thanks in advance for your input and your continued work as an advocate. — © Alex756 20:49, 5 Jan 2005 (UTC)


Please do not remove the content of other users talk pages. Doing so is considered vandalism and is against the policy of Wikipedia. Thanks, Valid 23:06, 5 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Colored peers[edit]

Hi, I'm creating a series of articles on colored hereditary peers and baronets. While there seems to be several Indians that were granted baronetcies I can only find one hereditary peer Baron Sinha of Indian extraction. There seem to have been no peers or baronets of African extraction however. Do you happen to know of any other hereditary peers of non-white extraction?

Further, it is not very clear what happened to the title of Baron Sinha after the death of the First Baron. The 2nd Baron Sinha was deemed the product of a polygamous marriage and was also an Indian citizen, both of which would have disqualified him from the peerage. Do you know if the title of Baron Sinha of Raipur is extant? Thanx,

Not really, for most of them - the only reason to include them would be if he was (or is) actually known by more than one first name (like George Gordon Byron, 6th Baron Byron), but most weren't. The few that used both or all their names usually used them as initials, like A. V. Alexander, 1st Earl Alexander of Hillsborough. The problem is that most peerage pages were created from reference works, which obviously include all the names, and we didn't think at the time to do [[John Smith, 1st Earl of Loamshire|John Henry William Robert Smith, 1st Earl of Loamshire]]<nowiki>, so now whenever creates an article on a peer they just click on the link with all the middle names and the article ends up there. I've been changing a few to the piped link format, but it's a daunting task, so I've ended up just moving the ones that are created to where they should be. ~~~~

President infobox templates[edit]

I think it's bad taste to even have a category for "Place of death" and "Date of death" on presidents who are still alive. Perhaps there should be a separate template for living presidents. Or make the category just disappear when the president is still alive (see the template I made for Philippine presidents) - TheCoffee 16:06, 27 Jan 2005 (UTC)

TRR - Race[edit]

I reverted him because more than three reverts are not permitted. I had the option of blocking him, which i did initially, but unblocked him again a minute later because he already got a warning for the last revert. Since he was not allowed to do the last revert, i undid his revert (regardless of content), sort of a last try to see if the warning worked before blocking him. Obviously, it didn't, since he reverted again, and got blocked by me for 3RR. Disclosure: I am not involved in the current conflict on Race, and havent edited the page in quite some time (although i had a conflict there a few months ago about the race mugshot picture). Hope this answers your questions -- Chris 73 Talk 02:55, Jan 29, 2005 (UTC)

Succession boxes[edit]

Ugen, I don't think we should group peerages and offices, even if the two are passing in the same manner. They aren't the same concept. If you split the peerage from the office I think the tables will become clearer.Mackensen (talk) 23:59, 5 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Ellen MacArthur[edit]

Just to let you know that I've added the link from UK to United Kingdom back into the Ellen MacArthur article.  I presume the reason you removed it was that there's another link to UK earlier in the article – from "British".  However, someone who'd never heard of "British" or the "UK" would not know that they referred to the same thing, but could find out by following the links.  I don't think it's important that there's only one link to a certain page from an article, but that the same phrase is linked only once in a given article.  If you removed the link for another reason, or think my reasoning here is faulty, please let me know!  John Mark Williams (t) 09:06, 10 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Calcutta -> Kolkata name change[edit]

Hi there. I noticed you voted in the Wikipedia:Naming policy poll to keep the Wikipedia policy of naming an article with the most familiar English name. You may not be aware that another attempt has begun to rename the Calcutta article to Kolkata, which is blatantly not the most common name of the city, whether it's official or not. If you want to vote on the issue you can do so at Talk:Calcutta. Cheers. -- Necrothesp 13:41, 5 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Westcountry Brythonic[edit]

Just a heads-up: Westcountryguy has re-created Westcountry Brythonic, which you deleted after a majority of established Wikipedians voted to delete it (as opposed to those like Westcountryguy himself who only joined to vote against its deletion). At the moment it's just a redirect to Brythonic languages, but so long as it's there, there's always the chance that he or someone else will try to restore a deleted page. --Angr 18:15, 23 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Tkorrovi vs Psb777[edit]

Ugen64, please have a look at the case being taken to the ArbCom by Tkorrovi. He has made a set of accusations which are almost entirely wrong and which is going to take me some time to rebut. I have succeeded in previously winding up the leader of the ArbCom (Raul654) on another issue, he refuses to recuse himself from the case. Another arbitrator (FredBauer) seems already to have found against me despite me not offering a counterargument. My habit of throwing stones at the edifices of the pompous could now be about to bite me. Upon looking back through the history I found this Talk:Artificial_consciousness/Blasphemy_archive. Herein you tell Tkorrovi that if he is in another edit war he will be banned. It is precisely this edit war which forms the majority of his evidence in this case. I think it would be very useful were you to offer a statement in the case or at least some evidence. Thanks for giving it a look, anyway. Paul Beardsell 23:48, 3 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Err, well, thank you. I think. Even I do not think that I have always acted entirely as well as I could. But I am somewhat puzzled that you reach your conclusion, that both of us should be punished given what you say. At the time you threatened to ban Tkorrovi you did not really criticise me. Even now you do NOT specifically criticise my behaviour. Perhaps you should do so, in the appropriate place, to support your conclusion. Or modify your conclusion. Paul Beardsell 21:42, 4 Apr 2005 (UTC)

(1) "Wholesale reversions?" No, indicate them. And show where I have violated Wikipedia policy. (2) Many of the "personal attacks" of which I am accused are not personal attacks, as you yourself have recently noted. The remainder, if there are any, seem to have at least been provoked. (3) The issue I have with your conclusion is that you spend a lot of time criticising Tkorrovi, not much if any criticising me, and this does not seem to support your conclusion. (4) You did threaten to ban Tkorrovi and you did not criticise me at the time. Were you wrong then? Or are you wrong now? Paul Beardsell 01:53, 5 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Let's see: Do you owe Tkorrovi an apology for inappropriately censuring him back then? Paul Beardsell 02:05, 5 Apr 2005 (UTC)

No answer? I think you forget the conclusions you drew back then. See your comments here: User_talk:Psb777#Artificial_Consciousness

Pageturner VfD[edit]

Hey, you just closed the Pageturner VfD and said the result was transwiki. It already was transwikied more than a week ago. I think what you meant to do was close the discussion as a delete.

May I ask why ? Anthere 05:49, 27 Apr 2005 (UTC)

hmmmm, generally speaking, if sysops behave like rogues, the idea is to help set up a system so that desysoping becomes easier. What about suggesting a round of desysoping ? For example, you could start with suggesting to unsysop all inactives ones for a year... that would clean up the list... then you could suggest other things... Anthere 05:21, 28 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Hi there! Because the RFC about Xiong seemed to deal mainly on his disagreements with Netoholic, I thought it best to start a new RFC to see if people have comments on Xiong's behavior that do not relate to Netoholic.

It seems to me that removing yourself from the corps of admins is not the most effective way to influence the direction it is taking. We need more admins who are as concerned about admin bullying as you are. Taco Deposit | Talk-o to Taco 21:09, Apr 28, 2005 (UTC)

I agree very strongly. Sam Spade 22:56, 28 Apr 2005 (UTC)


I was not aware of your list. For simplicity's sake, we could put up a single list at Wikipedia:WikiProject British Government/todo, and cross off titles as necessary. As to my first choice university, I have not made a final decision yet. -- Emsworth 22:51, 28 Apr 2005 (UTC)

In that case, both of us could use a single page - either your's or mine, I don't really mind. -- Emsworth 22:58, 28 Apr 2005 (UTC)
I'm only putting in the office I'm crossing off, as it's easier. However, if there is already a differently formatted table on the page, I simply put in all the offices mentioned. -- Emsworth 23:09, 28 Apr 2005 (UTC)

My RFA[edit]

Thank you for your comments on my RFA. Although the voting period just ended with a 14-8-2 vote, I will admit once and for all that I used it more as an evaluation of myself. Being promoted would have been a plus. I was more interested in who voted, when they voted, who would change their votes and when, and the comments I would receive. Hopefully I will correct the main weakness that was raised by those who voted oppose -- that I was too eager to put articles on VFD. Also, I will try to interact more with those Wikipedians who did not vote at all.

As for next month, I don't know if I will nominate myself again. I might not think about it until somebody else puts me up there on RFA at a later date. Eventually, I see myself as an admin, especially as the number of articles and users continues to grow. Thanks again and good luck at improving this vast archive of free knowledge.

Re your vote on styles. I understand and agree. But only casting one vote is effectively a vote against Alternative 1 because it means that less opposition is recorded against its nearest rival. Ireland uses an electoral system called Proportional Representation using a Single Transferable Vote. It works on the same principle as the one being used (only less complicated! I never thought I would find a system more complicated than PR.STV!) What you do is give your bottom preference to the people you want to defeat, and spread your vote in a way that boosts the rivals of the alternative you do not want. So if for example, you find Alternative 3 the one you least like, give it your bottom vote so that opposition to it is recorded. And spread the other votes to ensure the weakest get votes ahead of it. If for example in Ireland I want to ensure candidate 'x' of Fianna Fáil is elected, and ensure candidate 'y' of Sinn Féin is defeated, and there are 15 candidates, I give my number 1 to 'x', my number '15' to 'y' and spread my other votes to ensure that all other candidates beat 'y'.

Sinn Féin and Fianna Fáil voters famously used to practice a 'first and only choice' vote by just voting for their own preferred candidate and then stopping. They eventually realised that they were wasting their vote because they weren't using it to block those they were most opposed to, or to build up the rivals to the candidate they were opposed to. To stop Alternative 3 winning, if that is what you want, give it your fifth choice and give your second, third and fourth choices to the weakest options.

Just be careful though not to copy everyone else doing it. If everyone gives the same other alternatives the same order of votes they may win. So if option 4 gets a lot of 2s, give it a 4. Doing a full vote right down the line will have the effect of strengthening Alternative 1 vis-a-vis 3 or whatever. Just voting for 1 and stopping actually weakens it against its rivals if everyone else votes down the line, because while their opposition to different alternatives is recorded, by stopping at 1 your's isn't. That is why though very popular Alternative 1 is being beaten. Remember the winner won't be decided by who has more votes for, but which faces the least opposition. By voting first and only choice you haven't recorded your opposition to the other options. Slán FearÉIREANNFlag of Ireland.svg\(talk) 00:20, 8 May 2005 (UTC)

Watch out! Quotation Marks from HELL![edit]

Hi. I'm guessing that you are using Microsoft Word or some other sort of word processor to spell check pages, and then copying and pasting them in. I'm guessing this, because on Human adaptation to space, your edit converted all the single and double quotation marks to wierd strings of numbers. This is because, I think, you have the 'smart quotes' setting switched on, which means that Word using non-ASCII symbols to generate different open quote and close quote marks. If you hunt around in tools-options, or maybe tools-autocomplete, there should be a checkbox or something that would enable you to switch it off. --Fangz 15:19, 1 Jun 2005 (UTC)

I here by award you the Random Acts of Kindness Barnstar. You may think you did little but it means a lot to me. --Cool Cat My Talk 23:07, 6 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for your support[edit]

Thank you for voting on my RFA. Have some pie! I was pleasantly surprised by the sheer number of supporters (including several people that usually disagree with my opinion). I shall do my best with the proverbial mop. Yours, Radiant_>|< 08:14, Jun 8, 2005 (UTC)

User:Humanbot update 08 June 2005[edit]

Version two-two released today includes in that green box a nice count of how many articles are left. This more or less co-incides with the event of hitting only 1000 articles remaining. Also, I have re-arranged the User:Humanbot page to make it easier to get to the right stuff. Progress charts, wikicookies, wikilove and a more thorough spelling check is promised when this is completed. (and also when the exam pressure eases off a little on me) r3m0t talk 17:39, Jun 8, 2005 (UTC) Note: If you think this message was too trivial for a mailing, tell me and I'll stick to more important announcements on the list.

Talk:GAP Project[edit]

You may want to take a look at duk's comment.

"If you can determine that this is derived from PD works, and therefore is mere plagiarism instead of a copyright violation, then by all means, restore the text in question. I would recommend crediting the PD source though. --Duk 00:56, 7 Jun 2005 (UTC)"

Thats all I got for now. --Cool Cat My Talk 15:42, 10 Jun 2005 (UTC)

User:Humanbot update 13 June 2005[edit]

The spelling2 project (to work on secondary namespaces) was opened and finished. Progress charts will be available soon.

Version six-three tracks who made the edits, and rankings are available. Much of the work was done while I was asleep, explaining my low place ;).

The next project, which may even be released today, will probably fix incorrectly capitalised headings, particularly "See Also" and "External Links".

The mailing list has grown to 24 people and while that is very nice for my ego, it is rather difficult to send out updates. This is why I did not send out a notice that the spelling2 project had opened. From now on, then, you must watch User:Humanbot/announce for updates. r3m0t talk 12:00, Jun 13, 2005 (UTC)


Hi, I am aware of the 3RR. Please protect the page and at least have someone mediate the matter. --Ragib 03:18, 17 Jun 2005 (UTC)

I would stop editing the page further, but please have someone neutral mediate the issue --Ragib 03:19, 17 Jun 2005 (UTC)
