Would you mind taking some appropriate action? He's been given multiple warnings and has not improved his behaviour. michael talk 05:30, 12 June 2006 (UTC)

I think the block is a good idea. Although i maybe could have responded in a better way i am so frustrated by his edits. And his myriad of new articles: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/jackp --Merbabu 13:07, 20 June 2006 (UTC)

Perth Edits

I understand where you were coming from - I just want to make sure that any hard work that can be salvaged, is - even if that means that some of the information is transferred and some is deleted. From a personal perspective there were 2 photos that I specifically went out to get that were removed. I also spent a long time researching for references for some points that definitely needed it. If the information is all removed again after discussion I will have no problem - but there will be a chance to move information to potentially more relevant areas. For the record I have moved from Ireland/UK to Perth and I do find the ethnicity information worth having somewhere - however possibly it needed better writing and a maybe even more thorough and balanced coverage in a sub-article? I would refer to point make by Mark when the issue was discussed before. Take it easy and go the Socceroos! SeanMack 15:15, 12 June 2006 (UTC)

Portal:Portugal

Would you please review my changes after your objection in WP:FPCAN? If you still think the Portal misses something, just say. Thanks! Afonso Silva 12:36, 13 June 2006 (UTC)

Territory laws

Well, it amounts to the same thing. The Commonwealth can overturn any territory law it wants one way or another. Adam 01:39, 14 June 2006 (UTC)

It'd be interesting, though, if the Commonwealth were unable to pass the legislation if, say, one or two crossed the floor.--cj | talk 07:19, 14 June 2006 (UTC)

reverts

Why have you reverted the Narre Warren South page again? Morgan Leigh 10:48, 14 June 2006 (UTC)

Because you made a degenerative edit (ie, you reverted to deficient version).--cj | talk 10:59, 14 June 2006 (UTC)

I don't believe I did so. I cite as evidence that the present edit that you reverted to is missing valid info which was added subsequent to your revert and also contains grammatical errors.

Morgan Leigh 13:22, 14 June 2006 (UTC)

your comment

If I had been satisfied with your interactions with me in the past on that count, I could take your comment seriously. But I wasn't, and I can't. Tony 14:59, 14 June 2006 (UTC)

What's that comment supposed to achieve? Take the caution at face value. I've stepped in to moderate.--cj | talk 15:13, 14 June 2006 (UTC)
OMG, you as a moderator? You're kidding yourself. Tone down the bossiness, come down to earth and write plain, direct English ("Apologies are advanced ..."?), and then we might think about a mediator's role.
In any case, I have zilch interest in the page (I was interested only in supporting a new WPian who I know), and echidna, whatever he calls himself, is not the kind of Wikipedian I'd bother with.
So there you are. Mediate as much as you like, but there's nothing to mediate. Tony 03:22, 15 June 2006 (UTC)
Please don't shit stir, Tony. The point is, you've overstepped the mark and I'm telling (yes, telling) you to tone it down. The behaviour you are demonstrating is not worthy of a Wikipedian, and if it continues, you may well find yourself on an enforced cooling off period. Thanks, --cj | talk 05:38, 15 June 2006 (UTC)

I'm telling you (yes, telling you) to keep your personal threats off my talk page. It's worse that your threats include an expletive that other visitors to my page might find offensive. So tone it down yourself. You should know that people don't respond well to orders; more productive not to issue them. Tony 05:56, 15 June 2006 (UTC)

Nobody has threatened you; you have been warned of what consequences your behaviour will warrant if it persists. The phrase I used is both common and legitimate, and it aptly describes your postings to me. Thanks, --cj | talk 06:07, 15 June 2006 (UTC)
I regard your messages to me as threatening and offensive. No, common usage does not mean that you can write swear words on my page; please don't. I'm archiving your bossy messages, and will continue to do so. However, I'm very willing to discuss with you other issues concerning WP and its articles; that would be nice. Tony 06:13, 15 June 2006 (UTC)
Wikipedia isn't censored, and neither are my comments to you. I'm afraid that these are the sort of messages one recieves when one doesn't follow the rules. The initial blanking, and now "archiving", of my (and Enochlau's) comments to you is thoroughly inappropriate and should cease immediately. If you dispute the warnings, do so in words, and do so civilly. To simply remove them, however, reeks of a cover up and is, to those who notice, cowardly. I can't see discussion between us as editors amounting to much, given your apparent grudge against me. Nevertheless, I'd note that I am happy to see you've returned to the featured articles process, where your imput is excellent and increasingly important as WP:FAC continues to morph into just another "ballot", rather than review. One article I'd like to know your thoughts on is O-Bahn Busway, which will hopefully be brought by its author, Michael, to FAC shortly.--cj | talk 06:31, 15 June 2006 (UTC)
You've accused me of not following rules, but I find that your postings on my page don't entirely follow the rules. The swear word, according to the link above, can quite legitimately be junked. I don't want it showing on my page. In your latest message, you've accused me also of "a cover up" and of being "cowardly". Thanks. Why not set an example, rather than accusing and bossing ("do so civilly", "should cease immediately"); I'll never react to insults and orders the way you want me to. Ask yourself how your messages to me would have looked if linked to your RfA nomination. Admins are meant to have a calming influence over troubled waters, aren't they? That's what we need and expect from you.
I'm happy to look at O-Bahn Busway and to collaborate with you if ever the opportunity arises. (I'll be on restricted acitivities 16 to 30 June). Cheers. Tony 06:43, 15 June 2006 (UTC)
You continue to deflect responsibility for your actions; the problem here has been with your behaviour (personal attacks, incivility, and ignorance of warnings), not mine. Your statements at Talk:Sydney Technical High School and to me here are evidence enough of where you stepped wrong. Moreover, I'm quite satisfied with how I've dealt with this circumstance and would have been happy to point to it.
Thanks for looking over the article. I think it's a wonderful topic for a featured article. Happy editing, --cj | talk 07:52, 15 June 2006 (UTC)
Let's stop bickering; I don't agree with you, and you don't agree with me. No point in continuing that discussion. Yes, it's an excellent article. Tony 08:22, 15 June 2006 (UTC)

Alex Rafalowicz

I am refering to the edit posted by: 129.96.142.18. This is clearly defamatory. Is there any way to remove the material from wikipedia entirely as publishers are liable for defamatory comment? Also is it possible to discern the identity of a person from their IP address for further legal action? Are there any procedures regarding this from an administrator's perspective? Kind Regards.

Ice hockey, cycling, and basketball portals

Apropos of your reversions of my edits to each of these (viz., to return Associated Wikimedia and {{portals}} to a full page width infra to the substance of the portal, even as I understand the reasons for your reversion, I must acknowledge that I was a bit irked by your use of rollback (well, actually, JS reversion), inasmuch as your edit summary ought to have provided an explanation for your reversions (a note on the talk page of at least one of the portals, in the alternative, would have been fine). I must concede that I've occasionally used rollback for non-vandalism edits, but only where it is eminently clear that an edit, even if essayed in good faith, is disruptive or less-than-constructive, such that anyone reviewing the history would readily apprehend why I rolled back a given edit. Here, though, even as most portals, based as they are on Template:Box portal skeleton use the formulation that you ostensibly prefer, neither Wikipedia:Portal/Guidelines nor Wikipedia:Portal/Instructions counsels that the Associated Wikimedia and {{portals}} must span the page; it is likely appropriate that the {{portals}} link do so, but the Associated Wikimedia, akin, I think, to the other Wikiprojects and categories sections, need not to span the bottom of the page, and ought to be moved for space when necessary. In any case, my quarrel isn't so much with your reversions but with your failure to have given a reason for your reversions (even as I can infer why you reverted) when they weren't strictly necessary per WP:PORTAL. No big deal, but perhaps something to keep in mind in the future... Cordially, Joe 17:19, 18 June 2006 (UTC)

Template:WikimediaForPortals

Is there a problem with the edits I made to the template? I did the edit to make the icons have the same size as those of Template:WikipediaSister because the current icons are too small. Also I checked Portal:Mexico for their Wikimedia linking method so that the links in Template:WikimediaForPortals will work. Your edit (revert) has undone all of it, now the Wikimedia links don't work. Did you check to see if the links work? That's what I was doing when I made edits. What's the point of the template if the links are invalid? Also there was one extra Wikimedia portal (Wiktionary) which gives the dictionary definition of the portal entry in many languages. I think it should be included. — Nrtm81 01:40, 19 June 2006 (UTC)

Featured portal candidates

Hi, there is currently a few portals that have been on this page a little while, with complete support votes. I was just wondering what the usual length of time is between nomination and promotion? --Wisden17 12:27, 20 June 2006 (UTC)

Usually, they are left open for around 2-3 weeks (though closer to 3 than 2). I expect to close the remaining candidates over the coming week.--cj | talk 12:35, 20 June 2006 (UTC)

Please reply

Hi Cyberjunkie,

Could you please at least leave a response to my comment concerning the Template:WikimediaForPortals on your User talk page or my User talk page? You're obviously checking up on Wikipedia even if you are on a Wikibreak.

The issue I want you to check is the links of the template. They go to other Wikimedia project websites but go to a Wiki-xxx does not have a page with this exact name. Could you fix the links? Thanks. — Nrtm81 08:24, 21 June 2006 (UTC)

Hi Nrtm81. My recent burst of editing is just an extended period of procrastination (it's exam period). I'll reply properly on either Thursday night or Friday morning (my time). From recollection, my main grievance was your change to the format; by all means, correct the links, but please keep the layout the same. Happy editing, --cj | talk 09:29, 21 June 2006 (UTC)
Ah, I see! Exams! No problem. It's not a pressing issue. I just wanted the icons to be larger, at the moment they are all different sizes and small (doesn't look professional) I thought it wouldn't be so bad to use the Template:WikipediaSister design. I'm not sure about fixing the links because there's also the missing Wiktionary link that's now gone. If it's not too much, I'll let you decide how to fix up the template, the icons, and whether to add the Wiktionary link after your exams are finished and when you've had a nice rest :) Good luck on your exams! — Nrtm81 16:02, 21 June 2006 (UTC)

Hi,

you made an edit "fmt for IE glitch": if you have time could you explain what the problem was, so I can avoid it happening in the future and maybe learn something? You obviously now more about layout, wikimarkup etc. --Steven Fruitsmaak | Talk 10:44, 24 June 2006 (UTC)

You blocked an anonymous IP address that happens to belong to the University of Melbourne, for a week.

Hi there CJ. Good to see you back. I think we need to tee up the meetup now that you and Michael are both back, hopefully this week on a snap notice before school and uni starts again.

Hiya Blnguyen. Sorry I've been out-of-action for a while - the past month has been sort of sporadic, and Wikipedia was an afterthought. I've got a lot of catching up to do, but I'm keen to reinvigorate planning for the Adelaide Meetup. --cj | talk 05:13, 18 July 2006 (UTC)
