Actual Policy - take 3Edit

Here's a draft of an info box I propose we add to the top of this talk page (see previous Actual Policy sections for rationale) CapnZapp (talk) 21:51, 7 June 2017 (UTC)

I need your help in choosing the proper Wikinomenclature, as well as the most appropriate places to broadcast discussions taking place here. Thanks CapnZapp (talk) 21:51, 7 June 2017 (UTC)

No, again. Please stop posting two threads about one and the same issue. Debresser (talk) 00:19, 9 June 2017 (UTC)
I explained how I abandoned the previous approach in take 2 - despite several prompts, you ignored my calls for further explanation. This is my way of proceeding in a constructive manner - it proposes a different solution, and to me, a new section is an excellent way to handle that. If you feel an info box is the wrong way, saying "Nope" is not going to cut it. It almost reads as if you just want to make me go away; as if there is no problem here.
I invite you to suggest a way moving forward - and for the record: suggesting we get this page reclassified as a policy page is something I personally consider a hard block. It might as well be impossible from my POV; I certainly don't want to delve that deep in Wiki bureaucracy. For you it might be simple, but not me. More importantly: you have not presented any arguments as to why that must the the only way forward. Thinking of it, you haven't actually addressed this approach either. In fact, you haven't really acknowledged the underlying problem fully, so perhaps it's time you first explain your position here. Are you going to help me inform new editors of the... rather special... circumstances of this particular page, or not, Debresser? Or is this going to be the second time on the same page I have to drag people into a resolution...? In other words, I'd appreciate it if you just told me if you're not going to agree to any quick fix. I've wasted much too much time on this page already, so apologies if I come across as out of patience here. Thanks CapnZapp (talk) 18:01, 9 June 2017 (UTC)

"If the debate has died, don't revive it." You might want the discussion to die off, but since we still haven't got any useful editor advice, I'm not leaving. If you want to leave the discussion, that's no problem. What I'll do now is hold off a couple of days, and if nobody objects, I'll add something to the info box above (I noticed we already have one, so no need to have two).

Please be warned that you should not make changes to pages when you know for a fact that you have no consensus. Such behavior is disruptive and actionable. Debresser (talk) 15:24, 11 June 2017 (UTC)
Talk to me then. Cheers CapnZapp (talk) 21:14, 11 June 2017 (UTC)
