Rmv troll thread

Thanks. I copped some blowback when I removed the last one, and Longhair said he wouldn't have minded if it stayed there, so I decided not to do so this time. But I was hoping someone else would. Hesperian 01:38, 16 November 2006 (UTC)

It was perfectly removable under banning policy anyways.--cj | talk 02:03, 16 November 2006 (UTC)

Perth article

Hi, I was just wondering why you removed the sister cities section in the article about Perth, WA. Are the sister cities only for the City Of Perth, or do the encompass the entire area from Joondalup to Armadale?—The preceding unsigned comment was added by I like Radiohead (talkcontribs) 13:37, 17 November 2006.

Yes, sister cities are established by individual LGAs. I have transferred the list to the City of Perth article.--cj | talk 04:14, 17 November 2006 (UTC)

User:Mister Jinxy

Hi, I hope it's alright posting this. Could you help do something about the user Jinxy, please? Not only did he attack various edits to the Abbie Cornish article (see page history) - but take a look at my talkpage, his talkpage and both the talkpage and user page for Yamla tried to warn him on his talkpage; the response beneath was full of flame-baiting about me being a "kid" and "Wikipedians [who] don't know jack about jack, but because they think they know the rules of the game they have no problem being impudent to their betters." He really needs another warning, or even a temporary block, because he's not going to stop being uncivil of his own accord, whether the rudeness is directed towards me or someone else. Thank you! :-) misanthrope 16:01, 17 November 2006 (UTC)

At this point, I think it would be best to move on. Blocks are not punitive, only preventative, so it would be inappropriate for me to institute one after-the-fact. Furthermore, his indignation aside, he has recieved the warnings; any additional ones are likely only to inflame things. I will keep an eye on his contributions to see if he is persistently incivil, and if so, will step in. If you have any further issues with Jinxy, or other users, please let me know. Thanks, --cj | talk 08:08, 18 November 2006 (UTC)
Awesome. Thank you. misanthrope 09:53, 19 November 2006 (UTC)
Blargh, now he's throwing my name and yours around, accusing us of "vandalising" articles he's contributed to. See here and here. I'm getting more than a little sick of the flame-baiting and incivility - and I have a sneaking suspicion that whenever someone calls him on something from now on, I'll get the blame for it. I know you've tried discussing it with him on his talkpage, but all he's doing is deleting your contributions. misanthrope 10:39, 30 November 2006 (UTC)

Socks or not

Hi Netsnipe. I noticed you had been dealing with sock puppets of banned User:Fredguy. I believe the following accounts to also be his:

Almost all of these have interesting associations with User:Kelvin Williams. What do you think? Thanks, --cj | talk 09:11, 18 November 2006 (UTC)

I'm starting to believe that Kelvin Williams (talk contribs) is a sockpuppet of Fredguy (talk contribs) himself. It looks like he's creating a whole sockpuppet army again by having Kelvin "welcome" all his other socks. Note that Kelvin hasn't made many edits to the encyclopedia itself and seems to be mainly obsessed with his userpage much like Fredguy was. I'm guessing he's even vandalising Kelvin's userpage with a few of his socks to boost his non-existent WP:RFA credentials. I'm going to send this to Checkuser. --  Netsnipe  ►  09:51, 18 November 2006 (UTC)
I too think that is that case with User:Kelvin Williams – I just didn't want to say it first, lest I be wrong ;). It seems wise to get a checkuser on this. --cj | talk 12:33, 18 November 2006 (UTC)

Re: Maritime history

Your fair use Adelaide pics

Hey cj. I've replaced you FU pics on the Museum page and the aerial North Terrace picture from "Postcards" since I have taken my own pics and the policy mandates that we use free images wherever necessary. I took my camera on the way to uni one day and another excursion to Cleland (as part of a uni conference), and another sessions with the English cricket team at Adelaide Oval - So I think you can delete them now. I was giving you the courtesy of deleting them yourself. Anyway, I think we can start planning for the next meetup, and I guess we should fix it so that it works for the most heavy editors. Cheers, Blnguyen (bananabucket) 06:15, 20 November 2006 (UTC)

Thanks. I've been removing them when I've come across them, though I really ought to go through my logs and get rid of them all. In fact, I think I will do so now :). I saw your photos in Adelaide Oval – nice work! It'd be great for the Adelaide community to have another meet-up. I did say to Longhair (who lives in Mildura) that I would propose one for around about now, but I've left it be because many of us are busy with exams and because I will myself be unavailable for one for a while, as I'll be overseas from next week. I'm sure there are enough Adelaide editors interested in meeting up, so I say go ahead.--cj | talk 01:18, 21 November 2006 (UTC)

Featured portal star display problems

Hi, Ive noticed I can't see the {{Featured portal}} star on some portals, such as Portal:Photography. On others I can. It's helped when I moved some, but not others. For example , on photography, I moved it to the top and could see it in preview mode, but not when I saved it. I use IE6. Any thoughts on this? Rfrisbietalk 17:17, 30 November 2006 (UTC)

I don't have time to look at this immediately, so you might need to find a remedy yourself. However, I would suggest that you compare {{featured portal}} with {{featured article}}; if the problem you experience with the former does not occur with the latter, it may be solved by copying the latter's format and altering as appropriate.

Re: Solicitation and other things

Cj - You concluded on my talk page that my 22:11, 22 November 2006 post to Rebecca violated Wikipedia's Spam guideline, assume good faith policy, and no personal attacks policy, as well as misrepresented administrator and former arbitrator Rebecca's "Actually, fuck this, I won't be intimidated by a psychopath" edit summary.
Appropriateness of Your Post. Your post on my talk page gives the impression that it is from an unbiased, neutral administrator. However, you and Rebecca appear to have a close friendship and shared political beliefs about Australian politics, something you did not disclose in your post on my talk page. Rebecca is the third user listed on your user page [3], you and Rebecca were the fifth and sixth editors [4] to be added to WikiProject Football (soccer) in Australia. Within 24 hours of Rebecca's post to Newhoggy, you also posted to Newhoggy's talk page [5]. You are familiar with administrator (sysop) Rebecca enough to refer to her as Bec. You joined the WikiProject Australian history 24 hours after Rebecca joined.[6] You and Rebecca sided on numerous resolutions together regarding WikiProject Australian politics. Both you and Rebecca apparently share the same Australian political views [7] [8] and corroborated together on the same Australian political articles. [9] Your post on my talk page originated with Rebecca's conduct [10] in an article about Australian politician Leisha Harvey. In addition to not disclosing your close friendship to and shared political beliefs with Rebecca as part of your post on my talk page, you made a permanent record of your administrative Wikipedia violation conclusions without first soliciting my input.
Validity of Your Conclusions.
(i) Wikipedia's Spam guideline. To reach your conclusion that I violated Wikipedia's Spam guideline, you apparently needed to mischaracterized my 22:11, 22 November 2006 post (vide contribs) as a content dispute. After editors Seraphimblade and Elonka, I was the third editor within a day and a half both to become concerned about Rebecca's conduct on Wikipedia and make such as post on her talk page under an existing thread called Concerns. I was the twenty-first editor within a few months to both become concerned about Rebecca's conduct on Wikipedia and make such as post on her talk page. Rebecca's conduct had previously affected the 18 editors who took time away from their writing to post their concerns on Rebecca's talk page. [11][12] Prior to my 22:11, 22 November 2006 post, Seraphimblade and Elonka had made the posted concerns of these 18 editors the subject of the Concerns thread and made many of their Rebecca talk page posts the subject of the Concerns thread. My alerting these 18 editors about the Concerns thread did not violated Wikipedia's Spam guideline.
(ii) Vandalism, Assume good faith policy, No personal attacks Rebecca indiscriminately deleted my numerous changes to the Australian politician Leisha Harvey's article. The reasons for the removal of each content item was not readily apparent by examination of the content itself. Further, her sole justification for her intentional removal of legitimate content was a frivolous explanation in her edit summary.[13] Rebecca indiscriminately deleted my numerous changes to the politician Leisha Harvey's article and left an impression that my edits were low, despicable by labeling my edits as worthless. My statements (diff, diff, diff) addressed the actions of Rebecca. Rebecca's actions constituted Vandalism. I did not violate Wikipedia assume good faith policy. My vandalism comments (diff, diff, diff) were not a personal attack. A review of comments on Rebecca's Wikipedia conduct prior to my 22:11, 22 November 2006 post, including [14] and [15], bolsters these conclusions.
(iii) Misrepresentation The representation in my posts regarding administrator-and-former-arbitrator Rebecca's July 19, 2006 edit summary -- Actually, fuck this, I won't be intimidated by a psychopath (diff, diff) -- was based on the text of that post July 19, 2006 edit summary. Your expectation that I should have represented her July 19, 2006 edit summary in the context that she identified on 23 November 2006 - five hours [16] after I posted my 22 November 2006 post - is not reasonable.--Jreferee 01:44, 26 November 2006 (UTC)

Apologies for my very belated reply.
I'm afraid your comment to me demonstrates, at best, a propensity to assume the worst in other people. Among your myriad accusations against me, the most perplexing was: "you made a permanent record of your administrative Wikipedia violation conclusions (sic) without first soliciting my input." I haven’t a clue what this is supposed to mean.
You appear to assume that my message to you was done with my administrator hat on; it was not. One doesn't need be an administrator to caution another user against behaving contrary to policy. Indeed, my status as a sysop is completely irrelevant here.
Furthermore, my editing relationship with Rebecca is entirely beside the point. Your diversion to this is an example of circumstantial ad hominem, and I won’t respond to it other than to say that it’s both baseless and offensive.
With that in mind, I’ll get to the actual issue. You claim that your posting to Rebecca was not a content dispute, and that it was mischaracterisation to say otherwise. I disagree. Your grievance concerned an edit war at Leisha Harvey; that you chose to break with wikiquette and make comment on the contributor, instead of just the content, does not change this. In any event, the nature of the dispute does not change the fact that you failed to follow Wikipedia:Spam by soliciting 18 editors you knew to hold gripes against Rebecca. This was blatant canvassing, and rather like rousing a lynch mob; in other words, it was disruptive, and not the correct way to resolve a dispute. To quote the guideline: "Wikipedia editors are therefore not to engage in aggressive cross-posting in order to influence discussions".
Now, to the dispute itself. From Wikipedia:Vandalism: "Vandalism is any addition, deletion, or change of content made in a deliberate attempt to compromise the integrity of Wikipedia." Rebecca’s reversion of your changes was clearly not this, so you had no reason ascribe malice and thus make a personal attack when you labelled her edit "vandalism" in the summary of your subsequent reversion. Instead, you should have challenged her revert and explained your changes on the article’s discussion page.
To the final qualm. My point was you should never have misused the quote in the first place; it was inappropriate for you to attempt to use an unrelated happenstance to further your complaint, especially when you were not even privy to it. Regardless, my call for an apology was not based on the circumstances of the misrepresentation, but for the misrepresentation itself. Whether you care to do so or not is not something I intend to push.
Thanks for your time, and sorry for the tardy response.--cj | talk 19:23, 15 December 2006 (UTC)

Hello, please note that the sister city program involves the whole capital of WA – Perth, not only the city of Perth. Please refer to the following are quoted from the City of Perth Website: text here

I don't believe the text you cite supports your argument – it was merely a re-iteration of ASCA's broad guidelines. If anything, the webpage confirms that these sister cities are a City of Perth arrangement; sister cities are, in almost all Australian cases (Canberra being the notable exception), initiatives of local government entities.

Comparisons to size of Texas

Hi. I compared some Australian state areas to Texas, all of which you reverted as irrelevant. Over forty years travelling to USA with my work I found huge lack of knowledge of our (and other) countries. US news usually compares other coutry's sizes to Texas or another of their states - very seldom to its actual area. Thought my references might help them understand the immensity of our states better than numbers. There are many such area comparisons throughout wikipedia articles. Notice you didn't delete a comparison to Sakha Republic under Western Australia. Rgds and Happy New Year

Gold Coast, Queensland

I would just like make you aware that for most articles referring to the Gold Coast (Australia) will include Queensland in there article title. There are examples of this on the Gold Coast, Queensland article. I am only mentioning this as you have moved the Gold Coast Rapid Transit System, Queensland to Gold Coast Rapid Transit System and i wouldn't want you mistakenly changing this system over time as there are also many other Cities across the World with the same name Gold Coast. i think the Prefix Queensland should be continued for Gold Coast articles in Australia. L blue l 04:48, 28 December 2006 (UTC)

Actually, it would seem that you are misinformed. The Queensland suffix derives from Wikipedia:Naming conventions (places)#Australia and is required only for all town/suburb/city articles. Elsewhere, the general rules of Wikipedia:Disambiguation apply, which requires a qualifier or clause (like ", Queensland", but typically in parentheses) only in instances of ambiguity. In the case of Gold Coast Rapid Transit System, there exists no ambiguity and thus no need for the Queensland suffix. Thanks, --cj | talk 16:11, 29 December 2006 (UTC)


Regarding this diff, why did you think Work Choices was worthy of inclusion (at least temporarily)? So far as I can see, the legislation is in place and has survived a High Court challenge.

Whether or not the ALP makes opposition to the legislation part of their election platform (in much the same way as they did with their plan to Rollback the GST) is another matter entirely.

Please be patient with my limited comprehension - you;ve just created maritime history as a sub division of australian history - and these's nothing there - where did all the maritime stuff go or am i slow SatuSuro 01:45, 30 December 2006 (UTC)
I'm in the process of adding it to related pages, as well as doing other things concurrently. It's a new category, but it will contain pages soon enough. I'm not concerned about the maritime history subpage, I'm just cleaning up Category:WikiProject Australia. Thanks,--cj | talk 01:51, 30 December 2006 (UTC)
OK i understand what youre doing now - I'll let you get on with it. BTW is there any practical or good reason for putting wp australia class=na on category pages? SatuSuro 01:53, 30 December 2006 (UTC)
Not really. But it doesn't do any harm either.--cj | talk 01:55, 30 December 2006 (UTC)
Seeing you seem to maintain it (and I have made incorrect entries in it) - could you please sort out a australian state project section in the portal box? SatuSuro 02:54, 30 December 2006 (UTC)
