Disambiguation link notification for March 10[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited All Souls Church (Braintree, Massachusetts), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Church. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Username[edit]

Hi Wiki-Coffee. I wanted to raise the issue of your username being very similar to that of Coffee, to the extent that multiple users have confused you for them. Placing "Wiki-" at the start of a username that's identical to a long term and well known editor likely falls afoul of the username policy, even if it's a common word such as in this case. Would you consider renaming to avoid confusion? Thanks, Sam Walton (talk) 00:30, 12 March 2017 (UTC)

@Samwalton9: If I am honest I have a problem with re-naming because I like the name Wiki-Coffee, additionally I am conducting a research project off-wiki which I have used my username as is at the moment. Re-naming would require me to go through each instance of Wiki-Coffee and remove it / change it. I could make it clearer on my talk page that I am not Coffee however, they are distinct usernames :). Furthermore, G-R renamed to this after two previous name changes in the past already. ὦiki-Coffee(talk to me!) (contributions) 07:37, 12 March 2017 (UTC)
I'd like to give you another chance to change your username voluntarily. Coffee // have a cup // beans // 20:33, 15 March 2017 (UTC)
  • @Coffee: Can you go to the global name change request page and request it yourself then with a reason why then provide me with a link and I will endorse it. You will be better at explaining why I want another name change. Thank you. ὦiki-Coffee(talk to me!) (contributions) 20:43, 15 March 2017 (UTC)
  • Or we can just block this account for violating our username policy. You may feel free to use this account name on other wikis if you wish, but our local policy overrides any global usage. Sam already explained the issue quite clearly; and now I think you're just being deliberately obtuse... which is entirely unhelpful. Coffee // have a cup // beans // 20:55, 15 March 2017 (UTC)

Your issues with rules[edit]

I saw your proposals about the rules; the majority seems to oppose your proposals. Maybe you can go to "Wikipedia talk:" pages, like WT:policies and guidelines or WT:NOT, where you can ask questions about specific rules. I wonder which rules you have issues with, so I can guide you there. --George Ho (talk) 01:02, 12 March 2017 (UTC)

@George Ho: Sorry, which rules? I do not have a problem with Wikipedia rules so much as I think they can be improved. More specifically the layout and accessibility of them to editors. Right now they are not very clear and sometimes (even most of the time perhaps) people seem to argue about which ones are relevant and which ones are not. This isn't productive. But the truth is, it is not for me to say. Wikipedia's community has decided and thus that is how it stands. There is no personal damage onto me so my suggestions are really just that. ὦiki-Coffee(talk to me!) (contributions) 07:40, 12 March 2017 (UTC)
Which rules, eh? You were discussing the rules about protecting pages, like WP:protection policy. Also, why proposing Wikipedia:Rule 1 and requesting clarification on WP:SCHOOLOUTCOMES? --George Ho (talk) 08:26, 12 March 2017 (UTC)
@George Ho: There are lots of rules I come across in my work off-Wiki. When I need to refer to one I know if its an Act of Parliament or Case Law and I know the precedence of those rules. They are clearly defined and which has authority in which case doesn't have a 100 degree angle of interpretation. I found the rules on Wikipedia have 180 degrees worth of interpretation and thus there is no clarity of which actually applies to which situation. In spite of this, I appreciate that these rules and doctrines here on Wikipedia have long been established and for those on here they seem to work in a way. However, I am persuaded by my own views and that of experienced others that the current policies and guidelines on Wikipedia are so obscure that they are counterproductive. I really no longer take notice of them anymore given the wide array of interpretations people seem to apply to them, each person having a different view on them without there being any real authority which has the right to establish a firm interpretation. This isn't how I personally operate it is a sort of anarchy. ὦiki-Coffee(talk to me!) (contributions) 08:07, 12 March 2017 (UTC)
You can go to WP:help desk and ask if you like. Or go to WP:VPIL, where you can incubate your ideas and flourish them. George Ho (talk) 08:31, 12 March 2017 (UTC)
Did you read WP:policies and guidelines page yet? George Ho (talk) 08:42, 12 March 2017 (UTC)
@George Ho: No I have not read it but I will do so now. Sorry, I am not used to seeing a whole page of guidelines for how to create policies / guidelines on a website. ὦiki-Coffee(talk to me!) (contributions) 08:48, 12 March 2017 (UTC)
When you finish reading the page, you can also read Wikipedia:Principles, a list of so-called Wikipedia principles and other essays. You can see a navigation template at the bottom of a page. --George Ho (talk) 09:00, 12 March 2017 (UTC)
If you are curious about a policy or guideline and want to ask, feel free; again, I recommend going to "Wikipedia talk:" page. I did so at WT:V and WT:canvassing. George Ho (talk) 09:05, 12 March 2017 (UTC)
@George Ho: Is there a list of "core" guidelines and policies which are generally enforced? ὦiki-Coffee(talk to me!) (contributions) 09:13, 12 March 2017 (UTC)
Before reading the other rules, I would first recommend reading Wikipedia:Here to build an encyclopedia and Wikipedia:Purpose. Afterwards, you can read Wikipedia:Core content policies, which considers WP:V, WP:NOR, and WP:NPOV the three core "content" policies. Also, there are WP:list of policies and WP:list of guidelines. If you want to create or improve an article, how about WP:Your first article (if you haven't built one before) or WP:writing better articles (an essay)? Again, read the first two: "Here to build..." and "Purpose" before reading others. --George Ho (talk) 09:26, 12 March 2017 (UTC)
@George Ho: Not as easy to read as facebooks community standards haha. You see that Facebook page, that is the kind of direction I'd love to see Wikipedia policies take. A simple, single page which deals with things. Do people usually have the time to read so many guideline or policies and I wonder what type of people are attracted to reading so many. ὦiki-Coffee(talk to me!) (contributions) 09:32, 12 March 2017 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── There are also WP:What Wikipedia is not, which has the "not a social media" section, like Facebook; and Wikipedia:Wikimedia policy, which shows two links, including one to "Terms of use" by the Foundation. You might want to read the guideline, Wikipedia:Wikimedia sister projects, which also links you to other sister projects of Wikipedia, like Wikimedia Commons and Meta-wiki, which deals with the Foundation and its projects (like Wikipedia) as a whole. Even meta-wiki also has new project proposals there. Well... treat it like an invitation, though it also tells you how to link a sister project in articles.

Speedy deletion of KnapNok Games page[edit]

Hi Wiki-Coffee, I noticed that you marked the (now removed) page of KnapNok Games for speedy deletion under the criteria of "Unambiguous advertising or promotion". While I have no issues with admitting that I am an employee of the company described in that page, I believe I had written it with as much of an objective view as possible. The page was also linked to on several pages as can be seen on its what links here page.

In any case, if possible, would it be OK to retrieve the content for that page for my own safe-keeping?

Per "In the case, you do not wish to consent to continue being a subject in our research please inform us and we will cease the collection of further data involving yourself." I'm going to invoke this, and request that you provide to me a copy of all the data you currently hold on me.

I also suspect this is an enormous piss take and you're trolling the entire project. This is all just complete fantasy nonsense and I think you need to seek professional help. Nick (talk) 20:15, 15 March 2017 (UTC)

@Nick: Non of the data which is collected is personally identifiable, usernames are assigned a value like 1,2,3,4 and so on. "Cease the collection of data involving yourself" refers to the cessation of collecting data so far as we know is related to your edits on Wikipedia. For example, some of your contributions might be categorised but you nor anyone else can be identified personally by any data we store or keep in relation to the research.

Vocabulary[edit]

Moving our conversation here from User talk:TransporterMan. You know full well that at no point have I claimed you "drew lines in the sand and started to attack editors personally". I merely pointed out that sentences like "quiddity of current policy might be to débarrer the subsistence of capricious news sources" and "manifested a recherché aptitude for which I resolutely hold in high regard" make little to no sense to the majority of editors without the use of a dictionary, and you should consider using simpler and/or more common terminology. I am neither attempting to bully you or restrict your free speech, and this has nothing to do with your beliefs or policy suggestions. Sam Walton (talk) 16:52, 16 March 2017 (UTC)

@Samwalton9: I feel that you have evaluated "what" is said over "why" it was said. I propose the notion that perhaps I was deliberately seeking out those who understood exactly what I was saying (regardless of if they have used a dictionary or not.) Those who have a disposition to evaluate critically immediately flocked the conversation and this told me something. Furthermore, those who are prepared to educate themselves on the meaning of the words used would be pleasantly surprised by its sense and therefore would be more likely to reply to the content and meaning of what was said rather than taking aversion for ultimately meaningless reasons. Those “targeting” a person rather than evaluating the content they produce are very happy to flock to what they perceive as affronts to their intelligence, or indeed other combative reasons. The behaviour of this type is extraordinarily interesting especially when demonstrated online. I find it fascinating for an innumerable amount of reasons. I’ve used the same “test” in real life by using complex and archaic language with various people; “True” academics usually got lost in languages meanings and began to argue back with their own use of archaic language. Those with lower levels of education usually find it humorous, however, what is perhaps most interesting is that unlike online, no one appeared to take offence to it or react in a defensive way. But anyway, to conclude, I am not out rightly offended by what you said but astonished that you decided to pick away at my use of certain vocabulary so intimately as to accuse me of using a thesaurus and trying to appear “smart.” This conversation could go on for a long time but ultimately I will consign the whole reaction to my use of archaic language to one word “astounding.” ὦiki-Pharaoh(talk to me!) (contributions) 17:31, 16 March 2017 (UTC)
Wikipedia is an international project, contributors have varying levels of ability in both reading and writing English, it is generally accepted that contributors should use the most straight forward and easy to understand English when communicating with fellow contributors on talk pages and the project namespace.

OK, enough.[edit]

Stop icon You may be blocked from editing without further warning the next time you disrupt Wikipedia.

You are clearly either intentionally disrupting Wikipedia as part of a research project, intentionally trolling, or lack the competence to edit in the areas in which you're currently editing. Wikipedia is an reference work, not a social experiment or an online community, and you've been warned repeatedly about your regularly wasting the time of other editors. If you have a genuinely constructive policy proposal, discuss it with other editors before proposing it; I strongly advise against doing so, as given your recent remarks such as "There are articles about living people which are sometimes almost entirely based on secondary sources", "I do not believe that you have an email displayed on your Wikipedia homepage" and the screed here you clearly lack even the most basic understanding of how Wikipedia, Wikimedia and MediaWiki operate. If you want to contribute constructively to Wikipedia articles, you're very welcome to continue to participate, but if you continue intentionally disrupting Wikipedia you will be blocked from editing to prevent further disruption. If you do choose to continue to participate here, I strongly suggest you read this page—which is a core policy of Wikipedia. ‑ Iridescent 18:44, 16 March 2017 (UTC)

Indefinite block[edit]

You have been blocked indefinitely because you were found to not be here to contribute to the encyclopedia. Most of your contributions did not contribute positively to the mainspace, instead there were essays often lacking in coherence and purpose. Wikipedia is not a social experiment nor can it be allowed to be placed under the whim of various 'research projects.' We are all here because we care about knowledge, knowledge being freely available, and because of that we try to keep things simple and to the point. But our time, here on Wikipedia and on earth, is precious. And you have taken enough of it. Provocations, however subtle, are not welcomed nor tolerated. El_C 21:45, 16 March 2017 (UTC)

Wiki-Pharaoh (block logactive blocksglobal blocksautoblockscontribsdeleted contribscreation logchange block settingsunblockfilter log)


Request reason:

I am appealing what I feel is a draconian style blocking by administrators that does not conform to numerous policies on Wikipedia. Firstly, the reason given for the block is that: “not here to contribute to building the encyclopaedia.” The warning issued by Iridescent. In this warning, it states “you’re warned repeatedly about your regularly wasting the time of other editors.” There is no evidence that I have wasted the time of any editor and editors on Wikipedia can either engage with discussions or not. This seems to me like a very thin argument to make a case that I should not be making policy proposals as it is “wasting editors time.” The policy proposals themselves are good faith proposals that are put forward for two primary reasons; Firstly, to induce conversation about the issue reflected in the policy proposal and secondly to allow me to evaluate and learn from the responses. The policy proposal itself was a request for other editor’s opinions. Furthermore, the notion that suggesting policies, advocating amendments or encouraging discussion is evidence for WP:NOTHERE is contradicted in the NOTHERE article itself- notably the section which indicates states: “Provided the user does so in an honest attempt [in reference to advocate policy amendments] to improve the encyclopaedia, in a constructive manner, and assuming the user's actions are not themselves disruptive, such conversations form the genesis for improvement to Wikipedia.” There is absolutely no evidence which exists that would indicate that any of my proposals are made in bad faith or that any are “trolling attempts.” I accept that perhaps some of them had naïve components to them, however this on its own is not a reason to constitute a block.

In addition to the points mentioned above, the blocking administrators seemed to deliberately ignore or omit my history of clearly constructive edits to Wikipedia. For example, I have worked on anti-vandalism, AfD opinions, getting rid of advert style articles, re-creating an article from scratch that was on the verge of being deleted and so on and so forth. This seems to suggest in evidentiary terms that I am indeed contributing constructively to Wikipedia contrary to the assertion of blocking administrators. I further make a point that all my edits including those on the policy pump page are attempting “so far as they can” to engage other editors in productive discussion in a civilized way. While I did make three policy proposals or discussion proposals within a short space of time they are all in good faith as can be reflected by what I wrote in them. In fact, I even self-nominated my WP:Rule 1 for deletion after I learned that no community consensus stood with it. In fact, admins have made claims that my proposals are all “rejected” however, this does not seem to be reflected in the discussions for clarifying school outcomes or the newest and last proposal about unreliable news sources. Editors other than the admins which appeared to hound me from the first proposal I made are the only ones who objected without really suggesting any basis for their objections other than referring to my competence.

I would like to conclude that some edits by admins appear to have tried in some way to intimidate me and thus I am driven in some respect to prove the better nature of the Wikipedia project by appealing to right what is a clear wrong. I’d like to further say that regardless of if this appeal succeeds or not I am going to take this matter to arb com because I believe admins in this case have violated Wikipedia policies including the administrator policies. This does not help Wikipedia, it does not make it an easier of better place for “anyone to edit” and it certainly doesn’t promote the kind of discussions needed when people are in constant fear of getting on the wrong side of admins just for asserting their opinions. Many people from a variety of backgrounds come onto Wikipedia in a collaborated effort to help the progress of free knowledge. People take to various aspects of the project and edit it in many ways beyond just mainspace to try and promote change for good. But when you have the environment created by certain admins who think it’s their way or no way it makes editing here near impossible unless you conform not to policy but their own standards.

I would like to close this with a note about my research here. I’m in fact conducting research on Wikipedia but that does not mean that I have a goal to “disrupt it.” Less there be any evidence to suggest I have done so, this block is not only completely unwarranted but arbitrary in nature. It sets a dangerous and ominous presence over the internal processes of Wikipedia especially if new policies have no hope of getting anywhere when they do not conform to a certain “selective” set of Wikipedia editors opinions.

That is all, thank you. ὦiki-Pharaoh(talk to me!) (contributions) 00:19, 17 March 2017 (UTC)

Decline reason:

I see no indication that you understand why your conduct was deemed problematic or that you would change your approach if unblocked. Secondly, you previously said that all your editing on Wikipedia is related to your research; if you conduct that research as part of your work for that biotechnology company, you are in violation of the disclosure requirements for paid editing. As an aside, I really wonder why a biotechnology company would employ a lawyer as a researcher. Huon (talk) 02:44, 17 March 2017 (UTC)

 Administrator note: For the convenience of reviewing admins: the discussion that led to this block [1]. Beeblebrox (talk) 01:26, 17 March 2017 (UTC)

  • I would like to further expand on some issues raised earlier and refer to policy to articulate my points. Beeblebrox, an administrator, checkuser and oversight is entrusted with the privacy of users yet he has demonstrated a clear disregard for Wikipedia:No personal attacks and specifically the introductory statement “comment on content and not on the contributor.” He has further disregarded the policy Wikipedia:Libel by communicating libellous material in his edit summaries. For example, at 01:21, 17 March 2017 Beeblebrox removed the content on my homepage with an edit summary reading “I don’t think anyone believes one word of these claims of doing legit (legitimate) research.” I am conducting research for BREATHEFRESH LIMITED (United Kingdom) which is a company that specialises in Research and experimental development on biotechnology (https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/10383019.) I would be happy to provide evidence of further credentials to the Wikimedia foundation should my name not be believed, Furthermore, his edit summaries at 21:01, 16 March 2017 read “dear lord, what a load of crap” in response to my edits which is a clear violation of WP:CIVIL. This user’s behaviour clearly demonstrates that he has it “out” for me and should never have been involved with me as his only intention seems to cause me distress. The behaviour of other editors in this matter are similarly contentious of Wikipedia’s policies if not more however, I will have to elaborate further at a later time and date because I have other things to deal with. ὦiki-Pharaoh(talk to me!) (contributions) 02:08, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
You had 14 administrators support either a topic ban or overall block, and from what I can tell only about half of them had ever interacted with you before the ANI was started. Even if Beeblebrox was out to get you, do you seriously think that a half-dozen uninvolved admin who reviewed the case are also out to get you? The ANI had nothing to do with your research, but with the borderline-TENDITIOUS creation of proposals, and everyone was in agreement. You say that you're active in the anti-vandal scene, and I won't deny that you've done good work there, but the vast majority of what you've done has been in the WP space. You were asked (multiple times, by multiple editors) to spend more time in the article space, and instead you decided to ignore them. I'm willing to assume good faith that you would continue your anti-vandal work if you were unblocked, but the act of running off to tattle to mommy makes me less inclined to endorse an unblock. Primefac (talk) 02:20, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
As a minor note, even if in the unlikely circumstance that you manage to find a sympathetic admin, the topic ban of editing in the Wikipedia space (with, I would assume, the exception to AFDs) would still very much be in place. You'd still be able to do your anti-vandal work and edit articles, but wouldn't be able to make or suggest new guidelines. Primefac (talk) 02:45, 17 March 2017 (UTC)

Request reason:

Firstly I am a director and not an employee. Secondly I have never been informed about the paid editing issue (I will fix this once unbanned) and finally ", that is because I have no idea why suggesting changes to policy if they are promoting constructive discussion is unacceptable. However, at this point I realise that the community finds it "inconvenient" for me to make further edits on the WP space and therefore will discontinue it. If this had been explained without the use of WP:UNCIVIL language such as connotating to me wasting editors time, I would have happily obliged but I did not want to recipicate this negative behavior with a response. Once people began to show signs of serious discontent I actually ceased from editing the WP space at that point. The consequencial onslaught to ban me from the WP space was really uneccesarry as I got the point a long time before. Perhaps there is a case here of assuming guilt but I am prepared to accept that it is only human nature to attack what looks like something you do not like. With respect, the ban to make a point did not need to happen because it cemented the idea in my mind that Wikipedia is functioning on the whims of despot administrators rather than those who genuinely care about the project. With this said, I appreciate the concerns raised and as this is an established community I must respect the decisions made. Upon my unban I intend to rarely edit Wikipedia just as before this happened. I'll attempt to keep on anti-vandal work and the like. By the same token of the comments made here, I still do not believe administrators acted properly and by the policy that administrators are supposed to act by. Kind regards, ὦiki-Pharaoh(talk to me!)

As the blocking admin, I've never met or heard about you before today, but I've seen enough to tell that your contributions to the projectspace had not been constructive. I found your deleted Wikipedia:No religion especially disconcerting. Even its more benign parts are problematic: calling someone an idiot for making an attempt to fix a toaster with a dildo—Really? You thought that belonged on the projectspace? In the end, it just took time to handle all of that, as it is taking time to handle this. But what benefit does the encyclopedia see from any of this? The true tyranny here is the tyranny of time, which we never have enough of. El_C 03:32, 17 March 2017 (UTC)

He did some marvelous mainspace contributions, including Death of Max Spiers (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) recently. He did mention trying to contribute to Jeremy Corbyn (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views), which were reverted. He did discuss the content changes under the former name "Olowe2011" in 2015, especially at Talk:Jeremy Corbyn/Archive 1#User:JJARichardson and User:NickCT and Talk:Jeremy Corbyn/Archive 3. Here are his past contributions on the article. I hate to see him go just because of his failed proposals, supposed research on Wikipedia, and claims of paid editing on Wikipedia. I'm not sure whether I'll accept what is done here. I remember my first block in 2011, but that was... wayyy different from this case. Also, I wasn't and never have been a paid editor. Maybe he can counter the paid editing claims against him. Otherwise, if he admits his faults, remorse for his actions, and wants to re-contribute to Wikipedia after six months from now, so we can give him welcome arms. Thoughts? --George Ho (talk) 03:49, 17 March 2017 (UTC)

The more details about this alleged research I see, the less sense it makes. According to the site linked to, this user is a 23 year-old lawyer who since December has been the director of a pharmaceutical and biotechnology firm that (according to their repeated claims on-wiki) for some reason is conducting research that consists of submitting numerous essays and policy proposals on Wikipedia? And you're surprised that others are expressing disbelief? Beeblebrox (talk) 04:27, 17 March 2017 (UTC)

  • @Beeblebrox: That is a government ran website they tend to be rather reliable. I do not understand why you are so fascinated by the research issue because it is really irrelevant. What is relevant is that the edits I have made on the project are judged objectively, impartially and without bias. I have no problem notifying of "paid editing" if so required. Moreover, I am not "the director" there are a number of them. I think you have treated me very unfairly and to be honest I am not entirely sure why you keep posting onto my talk page to engage with me given that you seem to be in the habit of defaming me in edit summaries. Your focus is really disproportionately on me rather than the content I produce. It is a valid issue that some of the old content I made might have been in bad taste but I am not sure what that has to do with anything now. Conclusively, my research is not supposed to interfere with anything and it clearly has, this was a completely unforeseen and unintended affect. The only thing I can do is apologize for the inconvenience and assure that it will not happen again so far as I can control. Wikipedia presents an extraordinarily unique research opportunity but is also a good place to revert vandals from time to time. ὦiki-Pharaoh(talk to me!) (contributions) 04:56, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
Your the one who keeps bringing up your alleged research. I don't doubt that the organization exists, what is hard to fathom is what Wikipedia policies could possibly have to do with pharma/biotech research. It's just not believable and calls into question whether you are being honest about anything you say here. That being said, despite what you have repeatedly implied about other Wikipedia ausers, I actually don't have unlimited time to spend dealing with you and am happy to leave it other to other admins to handle your case from here on out.

@Beeblebrox: . Now I would very much appreciate that you remove any untrue claims you have written about me which could damage my reputation. Furthermore, the company actually funds other research projects usually related to technology. I would elaborate extensively on the actual research itself however, there would be a risk of introducing subject (participant) and sociability bias. After the study is concluded and written up I will be happy to give you a copy. ὦiki-Pharaoh(talk to me!) (contributions) 05:26, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
Not sure what that is supposed to prove, but it seems like a pretty poor idea to go posting your ID on a file sharing website, just so you know. For someone who is criticizing me for being too focused on them seem to be trying to get my attention an awful lot, you can stop pinging me anytime now and that'd be just fine.
