Goodbye edit

I have been a Wikipedia:WikiGnome for some years but I am now leaving because I am disillusioned with the way Wikipedia is being run. It is no longer the encyclopedia that anyone can edit. Biscuittin (talk) 23:36, 15 March 2016 (UTC)Reply

Hi there. I read some of your edits and I found them interesting and brave. Thank you for contributing. I agree with your sentiment expressed above. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 50.176.124.196 (talk) 02:46, 14 August 2016 (UTC)Reply

Censorship again edit

I've removed the vague attempt at outing from the ANI thread. Please don't attempt to "out" other editors. Recurrence will lead to an indefinite block. -- Euryalus (talk) 09:10, 27 March 2016 (UTC)Reply

Actually, I haven't outed anybody. Biscuittin (talk) 09:30, 27 March 2016 (UTC)Reply
That is incorrect, and these notification violate WP:CANVASS: 1 + 2 + 3 because they alert editors perceived to be opponents of your target. Johnuniq (talk) 09:44, 27 March 2016 (UTC)Reply
I repeat that I have not outed anybody. As a gesture of goodwill, I have removed my edits 1,2,3. Biscuittin (talk) 11:03, 27 March 2016 (UTC)Reply
Here is a comment which includes "As another Admin told Biscuittin, it will be an indefinite block", and the above includes "Recurrence will lead to an indefinite block". And you have no doubt at all about your position? In fact, you added the misleading heading "Censorship again" above the post by Euryalus (diff). Thanks for removing the edits, but the phrase "gesture of goodwill" suggests that you do not believe the notifications were canvassing—they were for the reason I mentioned above. Johnuniq (talk) 11:38, 27 March 2016 (UTC)Reply

Opinions edit

Also please note that having opinions is not a conflict of interest. --OpenFuture (talk) 09:12, 27 March 2016 (UTC)Reply

It depends who holds the opinion. Some Wikipedians are more equal than others. Biscuittin (talk) 09:30, 27 March 2016 (UTC)Reply
Articles at Wikipedia are based on reliable sources, not the opinions of fringe groups. Johnuniq (talk) 09:44, 27 March 2016 (UTC)Reply
It does not depend on who holds the opinion. A conflict of interest means you have some sort of personal interest in, that you for example are *payed* to push a specific opinion, or you work for a company, etc. Opinions are not WP:COI. --OpenFuture (talk) 10:12, 27 March 2016 (UTC)Reply
Holding an opinion is one thing. Being an active campaigner for or against a particular cause is quite another. Biscuittin (talk) 11:30, 27 March 2016 (UTC)Reply
No. --OpenFuture (talk) 11:32, 27 March 2016 (UTC)Reply

March 2016 edit

You have been blocked from editing for abuse of editing privileges in relation to information which has been removed from Wikipedia's public records.
If you think there are good reasons why you should be unblocked, you should review the guide to appealing blocks, and then email the Arbitration Committee at arbcom-en wikimedia.org.

Administrators: Information which has been oversighted was considered when this block was placed. Therefore the Oversight team or the Arbitration Committee must be consulted before this block can be removed. Administrators undoing oversight blocks without permission from an oversighter risk having their administrator rights removed by the Arbitration Committee (per this announcement).
 -- -- GB fan 12:03, 27 March 2016 (UTC)Reply
You were warned if you continued to make edits like the ones that were removed at ANI, you would be blocked. Your edits at User talk:Liz were identical. So now you are blocked. -- GB fan 12:09, 27 March 2016 (UTC)Reply
No problem. I shall pursue this matter through other channels. Biscuittin (talk) 14:03, 27 March 2016 (UTC)Reply
I've removed talkpage access as you were using it to repost the outing threat. As this will impede any block appeals, point of this post is to let you know that if you do wish to appeal the right venue is UTRS. If preferred, it's possible oversight blocks can also be appealed to Arbcom. -- Euryalus (talk) 10:39, 28 March 2016 (UTC)Reply

Block modification edit

Biscuittin,
After a discussion on the functionaries email list, we agreed that this should not be an Oversight-only block (one reviewable only by oversighters) because the information you threatened to publish was actually available on Guy's talk page. The blocking admins (and, it appears, you) didn't know this at the time. As a result, the visibility of your posts that were originally oversighted have been restored to page histories, but remain blanked due to their inappropriate nature.

However, your behavior leading up to, and after, the block is still considered block-worthy, based on its inherent battleground attitude, and the fact that you clearly thought you were threatening to out someone if they didn't do what you demanded they do. You'll need to address this in any potential unblock request. Since you repeated the threat to attempt to out someone after being blocked, your talk page access has not been been restored. But you can appeal this through UTRS, and any special rules about Oversight-only blocks no longer apply. --Floquenbeam (talk) 17:57, 29 March 2016 (UTC)Reply

I wanted to let you know that there's a discussion about whether Mayan Astronomers should be deleted. Your comments are welcome at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Mayan Astronomers .

If you're new to the process, articles for deletion is a group discussion (not a vote!) that usually lasts seven days. If you need it, there is a guide on how to contribute. Last but not least, you are highly encouraged to continue improving the article; just be sure not to remove the tag about the deletion nomination from the top.

Thanks, Daniel kenneth (talk) 15:03, 8 May 2016 (UTC)Reply

Proposed deletion of Alcalá de Henares railway station edit

Hello, Biscuittin. I wanted to let you know that I’m proposing an article that you started, Alcalá de Henares railway station, for deletion because I don't think it meets our criteria for inclusion. If you don't want the article deleted:

  1. edit the page
  2. remove the text that looks like this: {{proposed deletion/dated...}}
  3. save the page

Also, be sure to explain why you think the article should be kept in your edit summary or on the article's talk page. If you don't do so, it may be deleted later anyway.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. Daniel kenneth (talk) 16:46, 14 May 2016 (UTC)Reply

Speedy deletion nomination of Corkickle edit

 

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Corkickle requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G14 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a disambiguation page which either

  • disambiguates only one extant Wikipedia page and whose title ends in "(disambiguation)" (i.e., there is a primary topic);
  • disambiguates zero extant Wikipedia pages, regardless of its title; or
  • is an orphaned redirect with a title ending in "(disambiguation)" that does not target a disambiguation page or page that has a disambiguation-like function.

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such pages may be deleted at any time. Please see the disambiguation page guidelines for more information.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.
