  • Hello!! I am Cyberpower678. I am an administrator on Wikipedia. Despite that, I'm still your run of the mill user here on Wikipedia.
  • I specialize in bot work and tools, but I lurk around RfPP, AfD, AIV, and AN/I, as well as RfA. If you have any questions in those areas, please feel free to ask. :-)
  • I also serve as a mailing list moderator and account creator over at the Account Creation Center. If you have any questions regarding an account I created for you, or the process itself, feel free to email the WP:ACC team or me personally.
  • At current I have helped to create accounts for 2511 different users and renamed 790 other users.
  • Disputes or discussions that appear to have ended or is disputed will be archived.

All the best.—cyberpower

archiving problemsEdit

Hello, again stumbled upon link archiving problems. When I inserted the title of the article and clicked the find button, the original wiki text of the article popped out to me--Пппзз (talk) 00:10, 20 July 2019 (UTC)

Пппзз I've been working on fixing that today. I think I may have just solved it and an update for IABot should be out shortly.—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 00:26, 20 July 2019 (UTC)

Loving IABot dearly. Thank you. ! – SJ + 01:39, 22 July 2019 (UTC)

Bot IssueEdit

Regarding Lake Lawn Resort: SL93 withdrew his AfD request for this article, so I removed the AfD tag on this article. Your bot then sent me a "level 1 warning" about removing the AfD tag, even though the user who had recommended the article for deletion had withdrawn the request. Your bot needs to be smarter. DiogenesNY (talk) 17:46, 21 July 2019 (UTC)

Feel free to make it "smarter" if you think that. But you failed to follow procedure. The AfD was still open when you removed it.—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 18:12, 21 July 2019 (UTC)

Bot on wiktionaryEdit

Most en.wiktionary terms are lowercase. Many of the easy ways to generate lists of them render words in uppercase. Just as en.wikt autoredirects to the lowercase version, it would be good for IABot to do so -- while still not following arbitrary other redirects. – SJ + 02:15, 22 July 2019 (UTC)

EditsummaryEdit

I am very confused by your edit on my talkpage. Can we talk about that? It seems like TonyBallioni has information that I don't have; I have asked him what changed his mind. Rong Qiqi (talk) PRO-WIKIPEDIA = ANTI-WMF 02:40, 23 July 2019 (UTC)

There is no basis for your confusion. Cyberpower678 explained the issue both clearly and concisely. I agreed. It is now incumbent on you to abandon your recent pattern of disruptive behavior. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 02:47, 23 July 2019 (UTC)
Well I am honestly confused. I am not going to edit that talkpage for a while, but please do me a favor and give me the chance to understand your point of view. Rong Qiqi (talk) PRO-WIKIPEDIA = ANTI-WMF 02:49, 23 July 2019 (UTC)
While our representatives on the WMF board have worked hard to represent the legitimate concerns of the editing community, and working closely with ArbCom, have convinced the WMF to step back from the brink and negotiate, you are acting like a bull in a china shop on the executive director's talk page, except you lack weight and impact. Then you attack those who disagree with you. You do not represent the community, and you are out of line. Stop it. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 02:59, 23 July 2019 (UTC)
From my perspective its more like this:
I am a shareholder in Wikipedia, like you and everyone else. We care.
When proverbial shit hits the fan as a shareholder I want the CEO to resign. I cannot judge the responsibility of each individual employee, but in the end there is one person responsible for the group as a whole. I don't think this is a completely crazy idea, TonyBallioni just wrote that he wanted the same thing not too long ago.
A bunch of 3rd parties showed up and started disagreeing with me (even though I asked a question to 1 person)
I wasn't extremely friendly (I never am) but I never attacked or insulted them.

I never said that those who think I am wrong have to stay silent.
Au contraire, I said that Tryptofish is allowed to express his opinion.
That is why I called that a straw man argument, which it is according to the definition used on the Wikipedia article:
"A straw man is a form of argument and an informal fallacy based on giving the impression of refuting an opponent's argument, while actually refuting an argument that was not presented by that opponent."
https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/white%20knight
White knighting is a common way to describe someone coming to the rescue of another (usually uninvited/unexpected).
There is a fundamental difference between "Accusing people of making straw man arguments, whiteknighting, and other things" and simply pointing out that behaviour when it occurs. Commenting on behaviour is allowed, on people not so much (except if its flattering).
Then I was falsely accused of posting a personal attack directed at a specific editor in this editsummary but I have no clue what attack that might be and who it was directed at. Can you see my point of view? Am I crazy? Rong Qiqi (talk) PRO-WIKIPEDIA = ANTI-WMF 03:06, 23 July 2019 (UTC)
