IRC cloak request[edit]

I am Newyorkbrad on freenode and I would like the cloak Wikimedia/Newyorkbrad. Thanks. --Newyorkbrad 22:48, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Hi[edit]

You seem to be running as a candidate in the wiki board elections and this is where the link at that page goes. I expected more. 75.104.52.148 14:38, 16 June 2007 (UTC)

Whooops. Didin't know that I needed to re-log in. Carptrash 14:40, 16 June 2007 (UTC)
I am not a candidate in the elections. I am a member of the committee that is helping to organize the elections. Regards, Newyorkbrad 02:57, 18 June 2007 (UTC)

committee question[edit]

It would be appreciated if you could take a look at the section of Danny's questions, entitled whistleblower policy. It contains a few negative statements which are not, in fact, questions. The first is a complaint from User:WiseWoman in which the entire content is a rant about women's rights and equality, not a bit about danny's candidacy. The second is a complaint from GerardM demanding the withdrawal of Danny's candidacy, which does not contain a single question or a single inquistitive statement. I have struck the latter, but was reverted and told "I do not have the right" so I am bringing it up here. I believe that having the committee maintain the integrity of the candidate's question sections is critical to ensuring a fair election:While candidates may sling mud at each other, it is entirely unfair for people qualified to give endorsements (i.e. excluding the board) to sling mud at them on their article. The segments in question should be moved to Danny's talk page. Also, I believe some sort of statement at the top of each candidate's question page should be made stating "This page is for actual questions to the candidates, not commentary on their platform"

Copying to the other members of the committee. Thank you for your attention and time.Swatjester 15:03, 19 June 2007 (UTC)

(copied from my Talk): Swatjester, thank you for bringing your concerns to my attention. I'll speak with other members of the committee today so that we can come to an agreement on how to proceed. In the interim, please do not strike or otherwise changes comments from other users on the candidate pages. We appreciate your interest in the election. Philippe 16:35, 19 June 2007 (UTC)

Unable to vote[edit]

I attempted to vote and was told I was not eligible. I have over 2,000 edits on en.wp. I endorsed candidate Kate and was vetted without incident. I was unable to determine where else to direct voting problems so I left note here as you are a member of the election committee. Please advise. Edivorce 01:34, 28 June 2007 (UTC)

I figured it out and was able to vote without incident. Sorry to trouble you.Edivorce 01:44, 28 June 2007 (UTC)

No problem. I'm glad you were able to resolve the issue. Newyorkbrad 19:42, 28 June 2007 (UTC)

Welcome (back)[edit]

My en:watchlist perked up. I've been keeping myself busy.[1] [2] Best wishes. Cheers, Jack Merridew 05:09, 14 August 2008 (UTC)

Permanent lack of access to accounts on Wikipedia[edit]

Hello! Just an FYI, I have logged out of Wikipedia permanently and disabled my email after throwing out my password which can be confirmed per this. I have not only disabled it from Wikipedia, Wikia, and here, I also deactivated it from Yahoo to be sure that I can never re-log into Wikipedia under my old username. I now have no email associated with any Wiki on which anyone can send me any passwords. Moreover, the only IP that should actually ever show up as associated with my abandoned account should show no edits since April 2010 and no checkuser should find any other accounts on that IP. Accordingly, I have no interest at this time in creating any new accounts on Wikipedia, and doubt I will again and certainly not any time soon. I have in the meantime blocked the various named accounts on another Wiki that I strongly suspect were behind the various IP and attack-only accounts on various Wikia sites I edit and have deleted all of their vandalism that I discovered. Some might pretend that they have no edits on these sites, when in reality anyone can check the deletion logs at the Annex and List Wiki among others that I have deleted perhaps dozens of vandalism and attack edits by sock IPs obviously belonging to certain people from Wikipedia. Moreover, I have only blocked accounts that would never in anyone's reasonable expectations come to these sites to contribute as their history at Wikipedia is extreme deltionism only. Anyway, if I ever make IP edits whereever I happen to be, they will be only of the type that only people mentally ill would take issue with, i.e. those fixated on me who have followed me off site to Wikia, Wikipedia Review, and my now deactivated emails. There is thus no purpose in keeping my account's talk page as anything but a redirect on Wikipedia, as I have no plans to ever check it again. Moreover, I have no desire to ever again read admin boards, RfCs, ArbComs, etc. If I read anything, it will only be articles I am transwikiying. I thus expect that no serious editors will waste time talking about me and certainly none would care about month old IP edits or the like. I will never allow a moment of my time to be wasted playing games with those off to fly the deletionist flag or who comment on other editors' genitals ([3], [4], etc.). Anyway, just wanted to let someone know as I cannot send emails and I really do not want to post anything on Wikipedia or Wikipedia Review. Plus, I really cannot see why I would need to return here either. So, I guess that is goodbye. The past few months have been overall remarkably less stressful, my and my pets' health has improved. Work is going well enough and so on. I have nothing to really feel bad about anymore. So, take care! Sincerely, --A Nobody 03:07, 18 May 2010 (UTC)

A Request[edit]

Dear Brad,

I would like to edit en.wiki again. It pains me and frustrates me to sit by and watch as good pages are destroyed and processes like FAC are overrun with problems like plagiarism. I know that I have had a history of problematic interactions before, have caused fights, and led to many unnecessary disruptions. However, I am willing to do whatever it takes just to be given a chance to be able to help out again.

E-mail[edit]

Hi Newyorkbrad.

I was wondering if you could help me out.

I am currently permanently banned without possibility of it ever being reviewed from en wiki, thanks to a unilateral decision by SlimVirgin (to make me permanently banned) and secondly by Yamla (to make it impossible to ever be reviewed). I find this somewhat unfair and would like the opportunity to plead my case for it to be undone.

My ideal request is:

  1. I would like to have anything pertaining to me being a "bad person" to be removed (oversighted) permanently. This includes the arbitration case (Internodeuser), all edits made by me as Internodeuser (but not as Zordrac), and anything suggesting that I have ever vandalised Wikipedia or engaged in any sock puppetting, neither of which is remotely true. As part of that, obviously the false claim suggesting that I ever made a legal threat (not remotely true, as I was in fact subjected to death threats, which were used as evidence against me!) needs to be removed.
  2. I would like to have all accounts either used by me or claimed to have been used by me (e.g. Nova63 and You Can Stalk Me, which were created by Antaeus Feldspar and were actually used to attack me) to be unbanned.

I have lost all faith in Wikipedia, obviously, so don't intend to edit it particularly. I just want to have my name cleared. There are a lot of really nasty malicious lies about me and I would like to have them removed, as they are causing me significant distress.

Thank you.

Oh and PS I was going to e-mail you but I can't access en wiki and your e-mail address doesn't seem to work here (either that or I am so out of practice that I have no idea how to use it). Zordrac 14:34, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

Your attention is needed[edit]

Hi, As a member of the English Arbcom, I want to alert you to a group of users who are, at minimum, biting newbies incessantly. I could, have, and will describe their conduct in more frank terms in other venues. Suffice to say, they need to be looked at-- they appear to be collaborating to perform bot-style deletions of any fair use image they can justify, even "keep score". If the matter concerns you, you'll know how to find the people I'm talking about. If you've moved beyond wikipedia, I must confess, so have I. If you want this to be a happy place, somebody has to deal with these kids. I know you won't recognize the pseudonym, but it's been nice working with you these years. --Randomcommenter 06:44, 2 December 2011 (UTC)

GENERAL NOTE[edit]

I'm active primarily on English Wikipedia, and log into Meta relatively infrequently. If you wish to reach me, I will usually see messages left on my English Wikipedia talkpage much more quickly than those left here. Thank you. Newyorkbrad (talk) 19:48, 2 September 2012 (UTC)

Question[edit]

Why is it that you claim that Pigsonthewing has so much to offer the project (very little from what I can see) yet have always criticized my contributions to the project and fought against my being unbanned? I really find that unsettling. Ottava Rima (talk) 00:25, 18 August 2013 (UTC)

Really?[edit]

"I supported today's actions because it is unacceptable for an administrator, or for any editor sufficiently experienced to be aware of our policies and project norms, to escalate an on-wiki disagreement by publicizing the real-life identity, employer, and geographical location of a fellow editor, as Phil Sandifer ("Phil") did in this instance. "

I find this hard to believe. Moreschi did the same to me yet you were skeptical about anything more than a slap on the wrist. Why the sudden change of heart? Ottava Rima (talk) 00:00, 7 November 2013 (UTC)

Courtesy notification[edit]

Sorry I mentioned you but forgot to ping. Hm, the diff is here about this RFC.

ARB mail[edit]

I have sent this here as I am blocked on EN, so it is not possible to give you a YGM Notice. Thank you. DoABarrelRoll.dev (talk) 23:35, 10 June 2017 (UTC)

Geogene[edit]

I would like some attention paid to the gratuitous false claim made by Geogene on en.wiki. I only ask that they present their evidence and that when it is deemed insufficient to warrant the aspersions cast that appropriate disciplinary action be taken (as the aspersions obviously will be seen to be groundless since I haven't edited en.wp *at all* since the BS regarding "harassment and intimidation" was belatedly removed from my talk page by bureaucrat 28bytes). In any case the false claim should be revdelled. I also would like a reply to my email sent to arbcom-l@lists.wikimedia.org on the 20th of January, concerning the appeal that User:Euryalus wrote to me was in progress the 4th of December, 2017. I cannot ping Geogene as they do not appear to have a page on meta, though it should be noted they did not ping me on meta when smearing my reputation. SashiRolls (talk) 18:28, 24 January 2018 (UTC)
