Meta-Wiki has a small active community. When a normal user requires the assistance of an administrator or bureaucrat for some particular task, it is not always easy to find one. This page helps users find one when they need one; asking specific admins directly via their talk pages is one way to elicit a fast response.

Could some of you please keep an eye on User:Liuxinyu970226's conduct and behavior at Requests for comment/Rename nah.wikipedia to nci.wikipedia. Thank you. Seb az86556 (talk) 12:40, 13 July 2019 (UTC)

@Seb az86556: I don't use China Unicom IP addresses, please do not ad homenium here, thx. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 12:52, 13 July 2019 (UTC)
I do not speak English, but it looks that smart ass is just vulgar and slag, and certainly we should avoid using it. That being said, jumping into accusation of criminal activities (sexual harassment, which is a serious offence in most jurisdictions) is absolutely disproportionate. Please calm down. Also, the Code of Conduct does not apply on Meta. We have WM:URB and community-appointed administrators to deal with incivility issues. Thanks, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 13:42, 13 July 2019 (UTC)
@MarcoAurelio: that phrase isn't normally considered "vulgar", somewhat like sabelotodo. It isn't really "polite" and can easily be taken as a worse meaning on a multi-language project like meta due to the "ass" part. — xaosflux Talk 14:23, 13 July 2019 (UTC)
@Xaosflux: Whether that user's "smart-ass" is vulgar or not, it's still true that that user is making a false case, this just like that someone who claimed that Mike Pompeo and John Borton "are same person", just based on same supporting of Donald Trump's sanctions to Iran, not enough argumentum ad populum (Q251695)? --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 23:19, 13 July 2019 (UTC)
@Liuxinyu970226: I'm not saying it was urbane, just that it wasn't "vulgar" - I didn't look in to content substance at all. — xaosflux Talk 00:16, 14 July 2019 (UTC)

Please note that accusations of violating some supposed code of conduct were made against User:Ricardo gs, not me, before I made any comment at all. [1] When asked to clarify, "sexual language or imagery" was brought up. Help me understand were the user used sexual language or harassed anyone in or with this statement:

I don't see a clear goal. I believe that the split of the nah wikipedia into many dialects, unless it has a bigger community, will affect the efforts to generate quality content. If the proposal is about renaming it to nci I hope it can preserve its content insetad of restarting it from zero. Regards. --Ricardo gs (talk) 19:03, 21 June 2019 (UTC)

Which of these words is sexual? Thanks. Seb az86556 (talk) 07:49, 14 July 2019 (UTC)

@Seb az86556: It's not based on Ricardo gs, instead it's based on you, just see
Seems like one of those smart-ass-concern moves where people argue over some coding-frivolities instead of actually contributing.
Both bolded parts are commonly seen in the US circle of underworlds, especially their anti-Chinese advertisting materials, thus by saying such words, you or anyone else are already subject to racialism, this is why I require you to refrain such Incivility claims. Don't say we didn't tell it before (Q28418170). --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 22:26, 14 July 2019 (UTC)
US circle of underworlds and anti-Chinese advertising materials? I fail to see how that, which I was unaware people perceived as real, has anything to do with this discussion. Vermont (talk) 14:07, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
@Vermont: Do you ever know the case of Yingying Zhang? The killer of her said both bolded parts above in court. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 22:52, 20 July 2019 (UTC)
My Lord above... How's a murder case even remotely related with any of this? —MarcoAurelio (talk) 15:19, 22 July 2019 (UTC)

I'm not sure why @Seb az86556 thinks that the IP is @Liuxinyu970226. There's no evidence for that. I'm not sure why Liuxinyu started in on a murder case. That's really out of line.

  • Seb az86556 needs not to use language like smart-ass-concern. It is not ever helpful, and in general is going to make people responsible for responding to RfC pages where s/he contributes less likely, rather than more likely, to respond favorably.
  • Liuxinyu, who is a long-time, responsible contributor on pages related to Language Committee work, needs not to lose it like that. I really don't get why that happened.

I'd like to propose that on a voluntary basis, the two of them not interact with each other—and not contribute further to this RfC.

As for the RfC itself, I think I'm going to put a stop to the current line of the discussion and try to get it a little bit more focused. StevenJ81 (talk) 15:51, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
