Re: Diego Grez[edit]

Hi. I got your note, thanks for that. You may also have noticed that Diego has got generally annoyed with Wikiversity, and has retired from the project. When someone tells you that you understand the practical side of things, but not in theory, it would annoy you. Diego's taken a lot of stick from Wiki projects over the last 2 years, but sometimes things make you snap. It happens to me too. I understand that the message he left in the edit summary was excessively rude, and that does (or would have) warranted some form of action.

To be honest, when I made that comment about the global rollback for Diego, I had no idea that he even frequented Wikiversity. Since I also don't, that's natural. I know him from en.wikinews and en.wikipedia, and there appear to be no problems with him there. If there are elsewhere, since I don't contribute outside WP or WN nowadays, I wouldn't be likely to be aware of them.

Thanks for the heads up though, I appreciate the contact. BarkingFish 22:12, 17 February 2011 (UTC)Reply


I'm not a "female" user. I never said that in my preferences. If you understand it for some conversations (not with you by the way) it should be a misunderstanding. My sex is literaly unspecified in this projects. --Emporio2012 02:19, 19 February 2011 (UTC)Reply

Reviewing the case I think that you put an extra space in a user name here. Check the records please. --Emporio2012 15:20, 19 February 2011 (UTC)Reply


Hello, Magister. I was thinking and I think perhaps there're some "misunderstandings" in the case you show in the forum. If you show it, I suppose is because we can talk about it on this perspective. I'm not searching to be unblocked but, I don't know exactly the reasons you had to block me. The problem is the librarian Bucephala talked about an indirect threat and I don't have any record or constancy about indirect threats.

I suppose that if she asked you for the records and IPs and later she has it is because she first didn't have it and you gave it to her. I want to have this information also. Can you give me this records?

Thank you so much. --† Emporio2012 01:53, 27 February 2011 (UTC)Reply

No, I don't provide IP records to her, you or anybody. I only told her that I certify they are correlated and that the vandal accounts share your same IP. I didn't give her IP records. es:Magister Mathematicae 02:03, 27 February 2011 (UTC)Reply
Ok. So let me ask you: Can the librarians of any wiki know the IP of all the users and their contributions?
I just have confirmed my e-mail adress, that's why I couldn't send private e-mails : /
Please inform me about the question. Thanks. --† Emporio2012 02:08, 27 February 2011 (UTC)Reply
Another thing: where can I ask for that deleted record? --† Emporio2012 02:11, 27 February 2011 (UTC)Reply

IP data is considered confidential and therefore not available to users. Only those with checkuser access are allowed to see IP records. ("Librarians" don't have access to IP records) es:Magister Mathematicae 03:24, 27 February 2011 (UTC)Reply

On locking editors[edit]

I know Capsot's heated editing style from a talk-page campaign he carried out on en, long before this current situation led him to include me in a similar campaign here, and am not fond of it. He can play both good cop and bad cop in the same effort. (He also sent me email versions of these talk-page messages, and I advised abiding by Meta policies rather than taunting people here. I am involved in related movement roles discussions about trademark use and group recognition, which has involved members of Amical, but Capsot was not part of those discussions.)

I am surprised by the lack of discussion on Meta about his lock, however -- since he is also a serious contributor to a few wikimedia projects. His talk-spam is very annoying, and sharing personal emails goes against project policy. But I don't see why he should not have access to his own talk page here to discuss the situation.

You write:

Now, you can't get away with disrupting sockpuppets just by openly acknowledging you're going to use alternate accounts to cause problems. Therefore I locked the account as we do with all other disrupting sockmasters.

Can you point to some of the disrupting sockmasters who are globally locked? My understanding is that we avoid locking the accounts of established users, unless they are involved in a cross-wiki vandalism spree, or threatening or harming other users on multiple projects. Any exceptions should be considered very carefully. If you feel that sockpuppetry alone should be added to the reasons for a lock, please suggest a policy change.

Locking remains a broken tool that really should not be used in any case where local wikis should have a say in editors' access to their project. In this case: does anyone on his homewiki want his account there blocked? (in this case, oc:wikt) I suspect blocks on es:wp and meta would address the problems you observed. SJ talk | translate   02:28, 2 April 2011 (UTC)Reply

I am conflicted, since I am working on trademark issues (noted above) that among other things led to this outburst. But I would ask another steward to review, if you don't mind. I am generally concerned by instruction creep leading to overuse of locking. Regards, SJ talk | translate   02:40, 2 April 2011 (UTC)Reply

e-book Edit Warring Referee Needed[edit]

Hello Magister,

I am requesting your help in refereeing or helping to establish some sort of consensus of a paragraph on the e-book topic regarding e-book awards.

I must be up front with you and let you know that I have not hid the fact that I am the director of an e-book award competition that is not listed in the paragraph and I seek to include our competition among those listed.

Here is the problem... The e-book entry states: "There are two yearly awards for excellence in e-books—the EPIC eBook Award[37] (formerly EPPIE) given by EPIC, and the Dream Realm Award[38] for science fiction, fantasy and horror e-books. Both awards have been given since 2000."

This information is simply not accurate because there are and have been more than two yearly awards for excellence in e-books for years.

I have made edits to reflect a change that instead of "two" there are "several" and I also have listed our Global eBook Awards as one that deserves mention. My edits were labeled as spam and advertising. I was warned for soapboxing by stating the reason for my edits to try and start a dialog, but no one welcomed me or was open with me as it states that things should be done based on the fourth pillar. And as far as edit warring goes, I am under the impression that simply deleting someone's comments and labeling them this way or that way does not invite peace and understanding or any chance of building a consensus.

On my third attempt at making an edit (because no one would even recommend HOW to change my edit so that it would be accurate), I added two of the other e-book awards that should have been added some time ago and even THAT was deleted with a warning against me.

Please advise--and THANK YOU.

Graves problemas en ES-Wikiquote[edit]

No se, que se puede hacer, y si he hecho lo correcto. He puesto ya un mensaje en Checkuser [1] Pero creo que tardara mucho tiempo (semana o semanas) en resolverse. Por eso acudo a ti y a Dferg(ya le he dejado un mensaje como este).

Es importante por que genera una cantidad de basura que me obliga que cada media hora o cada hora entre para bloquearle y borrar la decenas de paginas que ha creado. Y no se que soluciones se podría realizar.

En wikiquote tenemos una ola debastadora de vandalismo. Y no se quien es. Me gustaria bloquear su ip y el rango de Ips que usa. Realmente no se bien que debería de hacer por ello es que prefiero que este tema lo estudiéis Dferg y tu, por que, con franqueza, creo que a mi me viene grande este problema. Pero creo que urge (no dispongo de mucho tiempo al día para entrar en wikiquote) Un saludo Davidmartindel 22:36, 5 October 2011 (UTC)Reply

Solicitud desbloqueo plantilla del Wiktionary en asturiano[edit]

¡Hola! Te escribo para solicitarte por favor si puedes desbloquear una plantilla en el proyecto Wiktionary en asturiano [2]. Se trata de la plantilla para el idioma coreano [3], que hace ya más de tres años bloqueaste tú mismo debido a los vandalismos que estaba teniendo. Creo que actualmente ya no hay riesgo de más vandalismos y así podría modificar esa plantilla e igualarla con el resto. Te lo pido al ser tú quien lo bloqueó y porque el único administrador/bibliotecario propio con el que cuenta este proyecto hace tiempo que no aparece por él (ni por otros proyectos en esta lengua).

Is it allowed in Wikipedia?[edit]

To keep in the pages of wiki Administrator's personnel thesis? at http://sd.wikipedia.org ? Other problem is We call Computer as same in English, but admin forcibly used his word Ganpukar of Computer. I have proof that thousands of published books called it Computer not Ganpukar. If some one oppose him he started abusive language. That is the reason sd.wikipedia.org never got attraction to Sindhi community. Plz check record there. Other things are he locked CSS due to that on the same site there are lot of font styles appeared there. He is not able to set commonCSS or Monocss. We are in trouble to work in our local Sindhi language. I don't know where to say for this problem. Record history says all the situation there. I appeal plz warn him to follow en.wikipedia.org rules, other wise he will continue use his personnel details and personnel promoted articles there. Dear I am sorry If u r not right person to say all about this, Plz suggest me where I can raise this issue. My sd.wikipedia.org ID is same.

Urgent request[edit]

Hello Drini,

LadyInGrey recently deleted and locked all the catalog pages at es.ws I've been working on. This goes directly against a vote which permitted I and other users to do so. Can you please take care of this. - Theornamentalist (talk) 02:17, 28 April 2012 (UTC)Reply

I left you a more detailed response at your talk page there, but she has gone too far. I've spent months working on this, with help from several other users, and she decides to delete them in an instant. - Theornamentalist (talk) 02:22, 28 April 2012 (UTC)Reply
She is now deleting all the pages without any reason, I need immediate intervetion, please. - Theornamentalist (talk) 02:43, 28 April 2012 (UTC)Reply
Of course, it is here; the vote was to delete them or keep, and as neither reached the 66% required, it was closed by Freddy as undecided and that they could continue to be created. She has well aware of the vote and everything about the system, but for some reason she decided to delete things tonight. I'm really trying to remain civil speaking with her. - Theornamentalist (talk) 03:16, 28 April 2012 (UTC)Reply

I'm sorry, but I don't see that the voting supports your claim. es:Magister Mathematicae 03:42, 28 April 2012 (UTC)Reply

It's okay, let me explain. The proposal was to delete them or make them official (neither of which I wanted); what I wanted is for users who wished to add works to a catalog system to be able to or not. In order for them to either be official or to be deleted, one of the proposals must reach 66% of the total votes. The first proposal (to delete) received 8 out of 14 votes, or 57%. The second proposal (to make offical) received 5 of 14 votes, or 36%. The other vote was a blank vote, which did not count towards either. So it was closed as no-consensus, or '"Las páginas de índice no serán borradas, sin embargo tampoco podrán utilizarse de forma oficial ni ser incluídas en las obras de personas que no lo deseen." So, I and other users kept working on them.
What is frustrating is that she is very aware of this vote, and the percentages, as she has ruthlessly enforced a vote for subpages which had 4 options, and 11 out of 17 people supporting it subpages (64.7% which failed to reach 66% because of a blank vote). This vote was 5 months ago by the way. - Theornamentalist (talk) 03:49, 28 April 2012 (UTC)Reply
In addition, she has engaged in an edit war with me before trying to resolve any of this, rendering the pages we've worked on broken (here) by deleting the catalog pages and deleting their links like this. She will keep deleting the pages I've worked very hard on before discussing anything. - Theornamentalist (talk) 03:56, 28 April 2012 (UTC)Reply
She has also begun mistreating another user by changing the header of the work. Seemingly trivial, but a blatant disregard to what she has enforced on other people, and a highly offensive edit towards the user. Here's an example of one. She is not acting properly as a 'crat, like, at all. Isn't it a somewhat common requirement that a given site have at least two 'crats or none to avoid this kind of thing?
Please get back to me regarding the catalog pages, because she has deleted a lot of work and what is left is all broken; I would like to fix it without fear of being blocked for reverting her three times or something (even though she engaged the war, and reverted three times already). - Theornamentalist (talk) 13:45, 28 April 2012 (UTC)Reply
The vote allowed for the continual creation of the catalog system, and the means to support it. This involves templates, pages, linking and lists. All are integral parts of the system. They have been used by myself and others since the beginning and were explained in the vote and prior in the Cafe, in fairly great detail, fully open for change and collaboration, as well as improvement. The pages and templates have undergone a lot of changes and work. Then, we had the vote, and it resulted in the ability to continue to create them; it was neither made official or deleted (which was actually what I prefer, I have said since the beginning I never wanted to enforce anything of the kind.) So we kept working on them, for months and months.
Finding that I was having to recreate the same information over and over again on publisher, printer, catalog, author, and disambiguation pages, I thought that it would be easier for everyone if we created a space where the publications information was held. That way, we could link to that. This would allow any changes made to the book information to be updated to all of the pages where the book information was held. This is what was to become the /Catalogo pages. I brought this up at the Cafe, informed users that I wanted to try it out for the Catalog system we were working on, and that I meant no harm in doing so, nor was I breaking any rules against the subpage vote in partitioning a book. All active users where aware of it, a fellow admin even helped me update it when a link was changed. She then suddenly decided to not only delete that, but begin to delete the Catalog links in the header many of us use, which directly went against the vote, was highly unfair and a huge abuse of power, as she has locked the recreation of pages and engaged in an edit war with me. She refused to calmly or rationally discuss anything with me. Please address this issue. - Theornamentalist (talk) 01:10, 30 April 2012 (UTC)Reply

Fundraising translation feedback[edit]

Hey Magister Mathematicae,

I wanted to ask for your help. As you may be aware we have been running banners on many language wikis. We have a lot of new content this year and I really want to conduct a thorough review of our translations. This is a combination of feedback from the community, readers, donors as well as those with professional translator experience. This will help us ensure the highest quality of translations used in our messaging.

To help us out with this I wonder if you would be willing to give us feedback for Spanish using This Link

Simply follow the simple instructions on that page and if you have any questions feel free to contact me on my talk page.

Many Thanks
