With due apologies for disrupting your festive season with this crap; a speedy indef is probably called for here. Ignoring policy, ignoring warnings, the works. They've edited articles I'm heavily involved with, so I can't. Vanamonde (Talk) 12:53, 14 December 2019 (UTC)

Hi - On 8 December you blocked this IP and asked that I let you know if they resumed ([1]). Unfortunately they've just made the exact same edit again ([2]). Sorry to trouble you; could you deal with it again? Many thanks! Dorsetonian (talk) 15:45, 17 December 2019 (UTC)

Blocked for a week, thank you, Dorsetonian. It's a language issue, I presume, which is a pity, but since they're impervious to warnings and advice, there's nothing much we can do other than block. We can't "fix" bad English if we can't understand it. :-( Bishonen | talk 17:07, 17 December 2019 (UTC).
Many thanks - and yes, I also think it's a combination of poor language skills and refusal to engage (the latter possibly another symptom of the former). Dorsetonian (talk) 21:19, 17 December 2019 (UTC)


  Damon Runyon's short story "Dancing Dan's Christmas" is a fun read if you have the time. Right from the start it extols the virtues of the hot Tom and Jerry

This hot Tom and Jerry is an old-time drink that is once used by one and all in this country to celebrate Christmas with, and in fact it is once so popular that many people think Christmas is invented only to furnish an excuse for hot Tom and Jerry, although of course this is by no means true.

No matter what concoction is your favorite to imbibe during this festive season I would like to toast you with it and to thank you for all your work here at the 'pedia this past year. Best wishes for your 2020 as well B. MarnetteD|Talk 17:26, 19 December 2019 (UTC)

  • Thank you, MarnetteD, it looks delicious. I'm very fond of Damon Runyon, and I realize it's getting to be time I re-read Guys and Dolls. Well, will you look at that — our Guys and Dolls leads to the musical, while the book doesn't even have an article — merely a mention on a disambiguation page. Outrageous. And not even in italics (I fixed that). Bishonen | talk 17:48, 19 December 2019 (UTC).

I agree Fraud-Fenn is most likely the same person as Republicans-Liars, but they're actually not a sock for all that. I had softblocked Republicans-Liars, meaning I blocked them only because of the username, not the editing. As normal with a softblock, I disabled the autoblock, and also, in my block notice, invited the person behind Republicans-Liars to freely create a new account with an acceptable username. But thanks for your vigilance, ApLundell, and merry Christmas to you! Bishonen | talk 21:54, 19 December 2019 (UTC).
Oh. I hadn't noticed that.
... of course, his new user name is worse. Instead of calling a political party liars, his new name is an attack on a specific living person. (His first edit is to an article about a man named "Forrest Fenn".)

Request for protecting the article on ChandalaEdit

Hi Bishonen,

The article on Chandala seems to be a subject of persistent removal of sourced content for a week or so, mostly as some IP user, and at times as Aman Kumar Goel, the objective being the same. Sourced content is removed from the consensus version, and the user Aman Kumar Goel is probably editing again as an IP editor in order to avoid the three-revert rule. Would request you to please check the Revision history, and take necessary action. Best Regards, Ekdalian (talk) 07:45, 21 December 2019 (UTC)

(responding to ping) I am not the IP. Those edits are not about "removal of sourced content" but "removal of irrelevant content not supported by sources". You have been already told about your unsupported WP:OR on your talk page,[4] but you are completely ignoring it. Aman Kumar Goel(Talk) 13:11, 21 December 2019 (UTC)
Chandala has been semiprotected by another admin. Aman Kumar Goel, since you say the IPs aren't you, of course you won't mind if I block them for a while. Bishonen | talk 15:10, 21 December 2019 (UTC).

Peace DoveEdit

Peace is a state of balance and understanding in yourself and between others, where respect is gained by the acceptance of differences, tolerance persists, conflicts are resolved through dialog, peoples rights are respected and their voices are heard, and everyone is at their highest point of serenity without social tension. Happy Holidays to you and yours. ―Buster7  14:55, 24 December 2019 (UTC)

Scope of a topic ban being debatedEdit

No festive season is complete without some turmoil on Wikipedia, so please see WP:AE#Jweiss11 where it is being disputed whether your 11 September topic ban of Jweiss11 from 'all pages connected with Andy Ngo' restricts Jweiss11 from editing the Quillette article. It's a little-known fact that any admin who imposes a ban is usually free to modify it if it seems not to be achieving its intended purpose, so that's an option you may consider. Thanks, EdJohnston (talk) 03:22, 24 December 2019 (UTC)

Thanks, Ed. I've commented, and recommended a warning. Hmm. Do you think it's not achieving its intended purpose? It's keeping the editor from direct editing of Ngo pages, and bludgeoning their talkpages, after all. That's got to be a good thing. But I'll sleep on it.

Many socksesEdit

Hi Bish, at User talk:Fact-Checker3234 you made the observation that they were obviously the same user as a couple of earlier accounts that had been blocked on username grounds; Fact-Checker3234 has made no further edits, but a bunch of other accounts have popped up to make the same edits to the same article (Fenn treasure). To me it looks like somebody is creating throwaway accounts and abandoning them once they have restored the unsourced, mildly BLP violating text to the article. The accounts involved are I-Found-Gold-In-Santa-Fe, CherryTees, SmokinMirrows, Rectal, and almost certainly Wiksnsainlay. Could you send a dinosaur over, and perhaps also protect the article for a little bit? (I could start a SPI, but it feels like unnecessary buraeucracy when it's this obvious.) Best, --bonadea contributions talk 21:51, 29 December 2019 (UTC)

Regarding the edit on Driving Licence (film) pageEdit

Sir, the character Harindran portrayed by actor Prithviraj in the concerned film is a superstar. The villain of the film Bhadran (played by actor Suresh Krishna) is his rival. In Kerala, legendary actor Mohanlal is used to be called by the tag name COMPLETE ACTOR, and his film rival Mammootty sir as MEGASTAR. After the release of the film, fans of both started campaigning accusing the character Bhadran to be Megastar/Complete Actor. So I request you to remove the unnecessary tags Megastar, and Complete Actor (which were never even mentioned in the film) from the page. Thank You. Akshay P V Kanhangad (talk) 09:58, 31 December 2019 (UTC)

Hi, Akshay P V Kanhangad. (I'm no Sir — you may call me Ma'am.) I see what you mean — especially the "complete actor" thing certainly looked pretty silly without any explanation, in my opinion. But I won't edit the article; it's not a subject I know anything about, and also, I can't act as admin and as editor on the same article. Please make your arguments on the talkpage — start a new section with a new header at the bottom of the page for the discussion, and try to get consensus for your version. If people can agree on talk — not necessarily everybody, but most people — I'll happily unprotect the page. Bishonen | talk 10:38, 31 December 2019 (UTC).

Need your attention here plsEdit

Hi Bishonen! Wishing you a happy new year! I think I need your attention and guidance on how to deal with a subject I haven't met before in en.WP. It is a case of probable WP:COI.

I noticed on my watchlist that a sourced piece of info has been removed from Cyprus Mail- a newspaper in Cyprus.[6] I reverted and asked the user to use the Talk Page.[7]. I checked the contributions of the user Ghadjic10 and noticed that he is been around since 2017, as a Single Purpose Account. All his edits are linked to Neocleous family business: Andreas Neocleous, Elias Neocleous & Co LLC, Andreas Neocleous & Co and lately, Neocleous owned newspaper Cyprus Mail. I added a {{Advertisment}} banner on the companies name and a {{merge}} template since they are the same company(which was renamed). I have asked this user if he has any conflict of interest, [8] but he did not reply yet. What he did, was to re-delete the info at Cyprus Mail. revert my last edit from the article of Cyprus Mail which was a minor edit (internal linking).

How to deal with such a situation? I do not want to escalate to an edit war and even though Ghadjic10 has been editing since 2017, he is still a new user, judging from the number of his edits. Your guidance pls! Cinadon36 14:10, 9 January 2020 (UTC)

Hi, Cinadon36. Ghadjic10 has simplified the situation by removing your post here.[9] (Bbb23 kindly restored it.) I've blocked them indefinitely as a likely undisclosed paid editor, because that's what their actions look like. I've invited them to explain themselves; if they can, I would be willing to unblock. Bishonen | talk 15:49, 9 January 2020 (UTC).
Yeap, it escalated quickly. Cinadon36 10:53, 10 January 2020 (UTC)


Hi Bishonen. Seems to me they are back, removing the same content they apparently don't like. Have a look [10] @Co209120d:. Cinadon36 13:31, 20 January 2020 (UTC)

Good catch, Cinadon. It doesn't really matter if that's a sock of Ghadjic10 (the most likely scenario) or an independent disruption only/undisclosed paid editor account. Needs blocking in any case. Bishonen | talk 13:44, 20 January 2020 (UTC).
My thoughts also. Thanks Bishonen for your prompt reply. Cinadon36 13:50, 20 January 2020 (UTC)

Why cooperate with political hit bans?Edit

Why cooperate with what's essentially a Discord server of politically alike editors all working together to get users who disagree with them, like me, topic banned? Shouldn't Wikipedia be better than this? This was obviously a coordinated effort by those reporting me to further entrench this website's political echo-chamber. Edit5001 (talk) 23:02, 9 January 2020 (UTC)

Why write to me both on your own page and here, and persistently edit conflict me by taking five edits to post two lines? I'll answer on your page. Bishonen | talk 23:22, 9 January 2020 (UTC).
Just a note to anyone watching to say that Edit5001 has now retracted these claims. GirthSummit (blether) 11:00, 10 January 2020 (UTC)


You probably don't remember me, but around four years ago you (rightfully) permanently banned an account of mine from Wikipedia (specifically this one). I'd simply like to make a kind request regarding the account if you would hear me out: would you mind terribly blanking the user page? It's an embarrassment to me, and keeping it around is a total pain, especially now that I'm not a literal child with no comprehension of etiquette or what constitutes a constructive edit.

My best to you, (talk) 00:23, 10 January 2020 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) There's a problem with responding to requests from an IP claiming to be a particular user, and I guess you can see what that is (apart from you technically being in breach of your block by posting here). Do you still have the login for the User:OmegaBuddy13 account? If so, you can still use its talk page to show that it's you making this request. Of course, it's almost four years since your block, and you have clearly matured since those days. So I would have thought that a straightforward unblock request, simply acknowledging that you understand your block and stating that you will not to repeat the behaviour that lead to it, would almost certainly lead Bishonen to agree to an unblock. Then you can do whatever tidying you want on your pages. --RexxS (talk) 02:20, 10 January 2020 (UTC)
(edit conflict) I've courtesy blanked the pages for you, assuming it's you, because if it isn't, well, no harm is done either way.
As a courtesy to us, please don't edit in any way that makes it look like you have returned. If you want to quietly create a new account and edit according to this site's rules and social norms, you can do so and nobody will know that you were previously blocked. If however you make it clear that you are a blocked user returning, either by admission or by behavior, you will get blocked again. Thank you, and good wishes. Jehochman Talk 02:22, 10 January 2020 (UTC)
Hi, OmegaBuddy. Yes, I'd be willing to unblock the account if you log into it and request unblock on the talkpage. But if you've lost the password, or if you're now embarrassed about OmegaBuddy's editing altogether, just discreetly create a new account, as Jehochman says. Perhaps you already have. That would be OK. Bishonen | talk 11:40, 10 January 2020 (UTC).
Discreet. That was the word I was looking for. Just so. Jehochman Talk 20:31, 11 January 2020 (UTC)

[Bishonen breaks out her favorite smiley to roll its eyes at the silly boys.]   Bishonen | talk 21:46, 11 January 2020 (UTC).
Thank you all very much. I don't really want to edit on the account again, and blanking the pages was really all I needed here. I was unable to blank the page myself because the block applied to my own user page following the denial of my unblock requests. I've been meaning to do something about it for a while, and the help means a lot. 22:25, 12 January 2020 (UTC)

Questions about Special Diff Pages and Edit ConflictsEdit

Hi Bishonen,

I'm moving this to your talkpage following my edit at ANI being reverted...hoping you can provide some information...

Observation Useful link. I have been wondering how to make shortened special diff page URLs as have just been using the second option listed. Thank you.

Question How come most editors transclude an edit conflict template when one occurs? Is there a script one is using? I have just been copying and pasting from the bottom text box back into the top text box. If there's an easier way that involves using a script or something, I'm open to that.

--Doug Mehus T·C 19:47, 11 January 2020 (UTC)

Hi, Dmehus Re your observation: I'm very proud of creating that help page. First and last time I've done anything like that. But as for the edit conflict... uh... what? Is that what "transclude" means..? I thought it was something else. Well, I'm no good around the technical stuff: that's exactly why I thought myself the right person to write a guide about diffs and links that newbies could understand. I mean, compare Help:Diff — can anybody understand that? Anyway. I copy and paste and so on also. In case I want to emphasize that I got an edit conflict, just to make it clear that I'm not responding to the previous post, I write this: {{ec}}. But you're right, a script that helps with edit conflicts would be a fine thing. I've never heard of one. Bishonen | talk 20:24, 11 January 2020 (UTC).
Bishonen, Wow, you wrote that help page? Very cool. Sorry about the confusion in my question. What I meant is I've seen editors/admins transcluding the {{edit conflict}} template at the start of their comment and was wondering what its purpose was other than to identify that the editor had an editor conflict. I see from your help page that there are multiple ways to fix an edit conflict, but if we're just copying and pasting our post from the bottom text box, we've not changed anything in an earlier version, no? So, should I be transcluding that template? Or is there a script, gadget, or some other tool editors use to more efficiently post their contribution in an edit conflict siutation?
Anyway, seeing your response, I get the feeling that it's basically an optional thing, to identify that the editor encountered an edit conflict, but if we're always copying from the bottom text box, we should be fine in not including that "ec" template as we'll always be posting to the current version of the page. Doug Mehus T·C 20:31, 11 January 2020 (UTC)
Exactly, it's optional and not especially useful. You're fine without it. As I said, I don't know of any script. Edit conflicts are sent to try us. Bishonen | talk 21:38, 11 January 2020 (UTC).
The advice I'd give is to use an {{ec}} template when the edit conflict means that your post does not take into account what was written in the post you just edit-conflicted with. In fast-moving debates, if you stop to read the conflicting post (and perhaps attempt to alter your post to take account of what was said), you'll likely end up with another edit-conflict, and so on. The template at least gives other editors a hint that you are responding to other posts, not the most recent one. --RexxS (talk) 00:37, 12 January 2020 (UTC)

Comments on my talk pageEdit

I have tried to respond to your comments on my Talk page in as calm and civil a manner as possible. I do not believe your characterizations of my work as an editor are accurate. I hope you will re-read all of my posts carefully to understand that, in fact, I was working to improve WP:NPOV by adhering to WP:FRINGE guidelines. I have also made huge contributions to these pages by fixing errors, adding important sources, and helping to copyedit content. It is not a "wikicrime" to substantially improve Wikipedia. As someone with a controversial POV, I am subject to relentless personal attacks. Please review all of the Talk pages to see how I have attempted to remain civil in response to that.Kfein (talk) 02:32, 13 January 2020 (UTC)

Likewise, I honestly can't tell. Just, the banned dude is back on his sock, making his familiar edits on the different pages. I honestly am only looking for awareness, so that there can be intervention for when he steps in on the more sensitive subjects, such as Alien, Predator, AvP, Lake Placid, etc., etc. It's up to you what you want to do for now - I just wanted to inform you that there's confirmed activity, albeit not necessarily disruptive. DÅRTHBØTTØ (TC) 21:54, 20 January 2020 (UTC)
OK, thanks. Yeah, theoretically maybe I ought to hunt him down like a dog (it's not formally, or at all, a "clean start" if he edits subjects he has edited before), but I don't wanna. I'd appreciate being told if you should notice undoubted disruption, though. Bishonen | talk 22:02, 20 January 2020 (UTC).
That's a wonderful attitude. Yeah; he's not really causing harm thus far this month, unlike how I expected, so I'm fine with letting the subject be. His last stint a month ago was ugly, with him doing what he was banned for, but I'm not compelled to put on a skeleton costume and play Karate Kid with him. So, we're in agreement. ;) DÅRTHBØTTØ (TC) 22:30, 20 January 2020 (UTC)

British International School HanoiEdit

Hi, Bishonen! You applied pending-changes protection at British International School Hanoi (thank you!) but it's not working too well – there's constant background noise from throwaway accounts, a waste of everybody's time. Would you consider changing it to extended-confirmed? I think it's amply justified, and might even have done it myself if I hadn't been WP:involved.

Hi there, Justlettersandnumbers. Ordinary semi hasn't been tried, so I'd better start with that, per WP:ECP ("Where semi-protection has proven to be ineffective", etc). Done, for 6 months. Bishonen | talk 12:09, 22 January 2020 (UTC).
Excellent, many thanks! Let's see how that goes ... Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 14:31, 22 January 2020 (UTC)
