Notice Coming here to ask why I reverted your edit? Read this page first...
Welcome to my talk page! I am an administrator here on Wikipedia. That means I am here to help. It does not mean that I have any special status or something, it just means that I get to push a few extra buttons to help maintain this encyclopedia.

If you need help with something, feel free to ask. Click here to start a new topic.
If I have not made any edits in a while, (check) you may get a faster response by posting your request in a more centralized place.

You can email me from this link but in the interests of Wiki-transparency, please message me on this page unless there are pressing reasons to do otherwise. Comments which I find to be uncivil, full of vulgarities, flame baiting, or that are excessively rude may be deleted without response. If I choose not to answer, that's my right; don't keep putting it back. I'll just delete and get annoyed at you.


Overstepping BoundariesEdit

Your recent add it to the list of fake news page isn't over a step of boundaries. You claim to have removed a piece of the article as one story does not make someone a fake News website, yet most of the media Outlets that are listed on the page are exactly that. I'm going to fix this, and please do not remove it, as it is a clear form of privilege abuse for the purpose of a personal bias. I'm not going to report you this time, but if you change it again, you will be reported. CoopDEtat19 (talk) 13:36, 19 April 2019 (UTC)

(talk page watcher) You may wish to read WP:RS and WP:V. No reliable sources cited in your edit call BuzzFeed "fake news" and your use of The Daily Caller doesn't give you much credibility - it's an explicitly-partisan outlet dedicated to fluffing Trump. NorthBySouthBaranof (talk) 13:47, 19 April 2019 (UTC)
I didn't "add" anything to the article. I wasn't using any of my privileges, and I've got quite a few, but you are clearly editwarring after multiple warnings going back over a year. Doug Weller talk 14:35, 19 April 2019 (UTC) @CoopDEtat19: Doug Weller talk 14:36, 19 April 2019 (UTC)
No surprise, this turned out to be a sock. Doug Weller talk 07:31, 20 April 2019 (UTC)

M*rn* Gl@sdt vandal...Edit

...or a copycat, is back as user colon HarperSyndrome. Qwirkle (talk) 18:55, 20 April 2019 (UTC) (an earlier version of this disappeared in the aether; my apologies for any dupes.)

Being Stalked by Another EditorEdit

User:Doug Weller what am I supposed to do if I feel that I am being stalked by another editor, who is being very disruptive?Davidbena (talk) 22:25, 21 April 2019 (UTC)


User:Doug Weller, I give you my solemn word that if you are patient with me and I am not banned from the I/P area, I will greatly improve my conduct and will not seek to contend with other co-editors on this worthy project, even if I disagree with them. I will simply, and calmly, discuss the matter with the other editor, and/or seek intervention from an Administrator if the case seems to me to be a serious infraction of Wikipedia policies.Davidbena (talk) 14:30, 23 April 2019 (UTC)

Happy First Edit Day!Edit

April 2019Edit

Hello Doug, Could I draw your attention to the recent actions of Lottolads (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · edit filter log · block user · block log), who you blocked for a short time at the start of April. They are now introducing incorrect information on the Rockall article, which I have reverted. They also appear to be starting a incorrect article via their Sandbox. It seems, once again, that they are intent on disrupting the encyclopedia. Regards, David J Johnson (talk) 18:29, 24 April 2019 (UTC)

@David J Johnson: I don't know enough about these subjects. Nothing about the BLP and just that several countries claim Rockall. However, this comment is worrying. ANI? I'm also almost at the end of my editing day, watching tv and my watchlist, won't have much time for about 15 hours. Doug Weller talk 19:31, 24 April 2019 (UTC)

Belated happy 13th Wikipedia birthday!Edit
