Yonkers Police Department Page (Again)

Hey sorry to bother again but I am having a bit of a issue. I am attempting to post the Yonkers Police page again which I revamped but it is not letting me stating "Your edit was not saved because it contains a new external link to a site registered on Wikipedia's blacklist or Wikimedia's global blacklist." Is there anyway you can help me out with posting the page again? Thank you for your time.

New editor with "bot" edit summaries

Hey, I noticed a new editor [1] who is making edit summaries that give the misleading impression that the edit is being made by a community approved bot instead of a new editor. I see that in their tp there is a template with a complaint about one of their edits. Isn't making such misleading edit summaries an issue? I have not checked their edits to see if they are all good or not. Ktrimi991 (talk) 20:30, 14 June 2022 (UTC)

  • Thanks--fun thing, I saw that name and for some reason noticed it. They need to stop that. Drmies (talk) 20:33, 14 June 2022 (UTC)
    • They could have helped themselves a bit by adding BOT to their username to somehow reduce the possibility of detection, like JasonBOT :P Thanks Drmies for the quick response, they could create a mess with such edits. Cheers, Ktrimi991 (talk) 20:46, 14 June 2022 (UTC)

Thank you for having stopped it. I reverted their edit to one of my articles - the edit summary alone had not alerted me, but seeing what they were doing. Will the other edits also be reverted? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 08:58, 15 June 2022 (UTC)

silly bot

This is a troll bot, take a look at this. They're not fixing any redirects - they're just pointlessly piping them. And now they're mass welcoming vandals/random users via what appears to be a bot. Please just block them entirely. PRAXIDICAE🌈 20:37, 14 June 2022 (UTC)

Hi Drmies, could you please help me?

Hi Drmies, this user is accusing in an AE Request that I am following him and targeting his edits.[4] Is there any ability on the part of you administrators to tell if I have arrived at this article by looking for the list of contributions of the user in question? Thank you very much.
PS. I suspect that the user is following me all the time. How could he get to these articles every time I edit, without having made a contribution before?[5] Is there any way to tell if he got to these articles by checking my history?--Mhorg (talk) 12:17, 23 June 2022 (UTC)

You can use the tools here to get a breakdown of the timeline of your edits and theirs. ScottishFinnishRadish (talk) 12:41, 23 June 2022 (UTC)
Thank you for your interest @ScottishFinnishRadish:, however I would need to prove that I did not arrive at an article by checking the user's history, but arrived there independently. Mhorg (talk) 13:41, 23 June 2022 (UTC)
We typically only look who's first to edit the article, which is about all we can do. Drmies (talk) 13:56, 23 June 2022 (UTC)
This is so sad, thank you Drmies.
Would you like to participate in this AE Request? Currently there is only one administrator dealing with it. Mhorg (talk) 14:19, 23 June 2022 (UTC)
I was wrapping up my comments while you were typing this, Mhorg--and I'm sorry to say that I am troubled by some aspects of your editing there. Please note that my problems with your editing are focused on very specific things: RS, but especially the BLP. You seem to have a habit of dropping suggestive remarks (or test balloons), like about Zelenskyy and the Nazi picture--but you just can't do that here. And you can't say "Sources about the unreliability of her rape reports" as a heading on an article talk page, stating something that is a matter of argument, not a matter of fact. At the very least you should have said "alleged". But the Denisova edits--I cannot, we cannot let you make highly negative comments about this woman's life and work across a spectrum of article, in article space and in edit summaries. You need to leave that be, one way or another, and if the AE request doesn't close with a topic ban, then you should expect all those edits to be scrutinized from the BLP perspective. You were notified of the discretionary sanctions authorized by ArbCom for BLPs, and I urge you to take that seriously. Leave her alone. Don't remove content from other articles where she's mentioned, and don't write up edit summaries that clearly and unnecessarily reflect negatively on her. Phrase edit summaries etc. in ways that do not insert unnecessary detail or opinion. This is important. Thank you. Drmies (talk) 14:30, 23 June 2022 (UTC)
[I wrote this without reading your last answer] Of course Drmies, I accept criticism and am ready to improve if I get something wrong. I often don't know any rules, if you notice I often ask questions to other users. However, for me the important thing is that there are several administrators to look into the matter, one administrator is already talking about a Tban. I don't think I deserve it, and I think I have the sources to back up those actions I took (among other things, for the first time since I've been on Wikipedia I'm doing text removals per WP:BOLD, which is practically the technique adopted every day by the user My very best wishes everywhere on every articles). Thank you. Mhorg (talk) 14:45, 23 June 2022 (UTC)
Ok Drmies, I understood what you mean. And I will try to be more careful in the future. However, do you think something like that counts as a Tban? Can't it be quietly discussed on the talk pages as it is with any other character and with all other users? I don't understand why I have to take a Tban for matters where there are sources about it, and they are matters of some importance. This lady has been heavily criticised in her own country. And by the way, I should point out: I tried to remove that part once, then I tried to group it, then I added information on criticism. Would all this be destructive behaviour? I am being accused as if I have been editingwarring on the article for months.
And it would be the last straw if a Tban was triggered by a user who is breathing down my neck, who has already been admonished by an administrator, and who has resumed wikihounding me (and even denies it!).
Sorry for the outburst, and thanks for your opinion. Mhorg (talk) 14:52, 23 June 2022 (UTC)
No, that's fine. But the BLP is a serious matter. Yes, all those things can be discussed, to a certain extent--first of all, they need to be discussed neutrally, so that means neutral section headings. Second, the edit summaries--but I don't want to repeat myself again and I don't want to scold you here. Third, such material needs to be discussed based on reliable sources, which is also why the Zelenskyy thing was problematic for me. Finally, Wikihounding--as I said at AE, I don't want to get into the personal interactions. El_C made that note, and I assume they did so for a reason, but it was a year ago and I cannot judge whether that is at all relevant to these highly visible and frequently edited articles; I tried to judge on the merit of the diffs. And a promise to be more careful in certain matters might help you at AE as well. Take care, Drmies (talk) 15:49, 23 June 2022 (UTC)

For recent cases of wikihounding, I appeal to your kindness, if you could at least verify these 7 links, at least maybe I would get some justice (note that no admin has yet taken any of my points into consideration, only those of my opponent), as the user has harassed me last year and has started to do so again (and now he is probably getting a tban against me, which was what he had long dreamed of, to exclude me from discussions).

Talking about the BLP issue, I am taking advantage of this unpleasant situation to learn how to handle certain situations. The user now accuses me of this too.[6] Considering that the source is first class in Italy (the first Italian channel), and that several sources have spoken about it, that the text seems to me to be neutrally reported, and that it seems to me to respect the WP:PUBLICFIGURE, is there a BLP violation here too? Thank you for your patience.--Mhorg (talk) 06:57, 24 June 2022 (UTC)

I don't know if you'll have time to deal with these reports of mine, even if they don't clarify the violations I have committed, they will at least clarify who the person is who is attacking me and painting me as a malicious user. Dennis unfortunately seems to believe him, as he writes "as you tend to talk 'at' other editors rather than 'with' them", but I can assure you that the only hostile exchanges in discussions I've had are with MVBW and maybe a couple of other users (with some of them we've even resolved peacefully. I sometimes lose my patience when users talk in forum terminology without bringing sources).
Also, note that I never got a warning from administrators for my behaviour, I only got a one-day block[7] for clashing with a sockpuppet[8] (which you busted, I don't know if you remember: "User:LauraWilliamson is a sock of a particularly irritating longterm disruptor; see Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Gordimalo/Archive. Drmies (talk) 18:09, 9 February 2021"). I asked EdJohnston if he could remove the block from the counter, but he told me it was impossible.[9]
That said, I have read your assessment carefully and am fine with accepting the ban on Denisova and related issues. I have tried to take note of all the points about BLP, and edit summaries, etc., and I will make sure I stick to the advice you gave. In short, I would like the opportunity to prove that this was a mistake, and a lack of understanding of BLP rules. Had I known they were so tight, I would have been much more careful.

In fact, we are reading your briefs in seat 19-C on Southwest Airlines from Burbank to Oakland. Please accommodate us in your typography and exhibit presentation."

CSD question

Hi Drmies, I have some questions regarding CSD tags. A user added a CSD tag to Redeeming Love (2021 film) and its talk page. This is a redirect page to Redeeming Love (2022 film), which was moved to that title last year. The user gave no reason for the CSD, and at first glance, I don't think it's eligible for CSD. As a non-admin user with some privileges such as Page Mover, what am I able to do about in this situation? Should I leave it for an admin to deal with, or am I able to remove the CSD myself? (I'm not asking you to deal with it yourself, if you're not able to at this time.) Thanks. BilCat (talk) 20:20, 26 June 2022 (UTC)

(talk page watcher) @BilCat: IMHO, you can-- if you did not create the page. --Deepfriedokra (talk) 20:23, 26 June 2022 (UTC)

        As I recall, what is now Tampa rebelled against the rebellion, but slow COVID and encroaching senility have clouded the memory. Before statehood, we had West Florida and East Florida, as separated politically as the East is from the West. Yes, those North Floridians deserve a state of their own-- or something. I should imagine there are many in the panhandle that would welcome Alabama, and that very little force would be required. --Deepfriedokra (talk) 13:30, 27 June 2022 (UTC)

        That makes me happy to hear re: your cousin in FL since we're considering moving there due to cost (MD is currently too expensive for the type of house we're looking for + cost of child care), so good to know there's like minded people. ;) PRAXIDICAE🌈 13:44, 27 June 2022 (UTC)
        Glad to be of help, but I'm not how many people there are in Florida like my cousin. BTW, she lives in southern Florida.--Bbb23 (talk) 13:46, 27 June 2022 (UTC)
        Massachusetts isn't too cripplingly expensive once you're outside of the large urban centers, and the state is small enough where commuting is never that bad. It does, however, get less than no degrees, and there are several months where you're lucky if you see above freezing. On the plus side you don't have to worry about flesh eating bacteria or brain eating amoebas in the water. ScottishFinnishRadish (talk) 13:50, 27 June 2022 (UTC)
        Hard pass on the cold, the only reason I agreed to move out of the city (I don't drive) is if we lived on the beach. PRAXIDICAE🌈 13:55, 27 June 2022 (UTC)
        Without the cold, how can you convince yourself that ice fishing and snowshoeing are hobbies and not punishment? ScottishFinnishRadish (talk) 14:02, 27 June 2022 (UTC)

Arbitration request declined

The recent request for Arbitration to which you were listed as a party has been declined, as the Committee felt it was premature. For the Arbitration Committee, firefly ( t · c ) 15:11, 27 June 2022 (UTC)

Distinctive manifestation of WP:CIR

hej! Kindly take a look at the past day or so of activity from [12]. It's not overt "vandalism", but something's going on here from a user with a particular pattern of non-WP:CIR English syntax/usage errors. I appreciate a second look from you and your TPSes who are familiar with particular species of ESL mishaps. - Julietdeltalima (talk) 20:07, 27 June 2022 (UTC)

  • I actually just checked into that, and I looked at some more. Little I can do until the user starts editing again; let's hope they improve, and write acceptable edit summaries. Drmies (talk) 20:07, 27 June 2022 (UTC)

Supreme Court

Thanks for your attention on Supreme court ([13]). Just so you know, the vandalism actually goes back further (and will likely continue until the RPP request is filled) and similar dreck fills the logs and diffs all the way back to this version. TJRC (talk) 01:33, 28 June 2022 (UTC)

Hmm--Biggus Dickus or Pussy Galore?

PROD notifs

About this... I didn't give it much thought before the prods but twinkle automatically notifies the page creator when an article they created gets prodded; obv you knew that already but I apologize for the disturbance. --VersaceSpace 🌃 05:45, 29 June 2022 (UTC)

For what it's worth, that option is a checkbox on the nomination splash that can be turned off if necessary, though obviously that's only helpful if you know and/or remember who created the page. Primefac (talk) 11:25, 29 June 2022 (UTC) (talk page stalker)
Somehow I missed that...I'll definitely be checking that box in the future. --VersaceSpace 🌃 14:35, 29 June 2022 (UTC)
User:VersaceSpace, no apology necessary--I know it was automated, and I appreciate Primefac's help here. I was just, you know, cleaning up... Drmies (talk) 15:25, 29 June 2022 (UTC)

CU request

Some days ago I warned Ftillimi for edit warring on the Arbëresh language article. After that they stopped reverting. Today a London IP started to edit with the same weird POV. I note that the first edit of Ftillimi on enwiki was the creation of the draft article of a London-based Arbëresh linguist. After I warned the IP for edit warring, ARBERESHTV started to make edits with the same POV. After another editor reverted ARBERESHTV, Ftillimi reverted that editor. Due to being on the phone at the moment I can't open the SPI page and the case needs quick CU due to the accounts causing edit warring with multiple editors, can you please use CU to compare the two accounts? Ktrimi991 (talk) 15:34, 29 June 2022 (UTC)

  • I can't say much, but I can say that there is no reason to suspect Ftillimi of foul play. Now Arberesh is problematic, but that's a different matter. Thanks, Drmies (talk) 16:29, 29 June 2022 (UTC)
    • Well, it can't be a coincidance that the very first edit of Ftillimi on enwiki was the creation of the draft article of Martin Di Maggio. Di Maggio is the person who operates the ARBËRESHTV YouTube channel. They even placed a link to the YT channel in the draft article. And then an account named ARBËRESHTV emerged with the same POV as Ftillimi. In any case, I understand you see this in a way other than I do. Thanks for the time, cheers, Ktrimi991 (talk) 16:45, 29 June 2022 (UTC)
      • Btw, ARBËRESHTV apparently reverted your edit as "vandalism" [14]. Ktrimi991 (talk) 16:51, 29 June 2022 (UTC)
        • Also, both Ftillimi and ARBERESHTV have the habit to write in UPPERCASE letters [15][16][17][18]. This combined with pushing the same POV and the fact that Ftillimi wrote the draft article of the user of the ARBERESHTV Youtube channel makes it obvious that Ftillimi and ARBERESHTV are being used by the same person. Ktrimi991 (talk) 20:06, 29 June 2022 (UTC)
          • I saw; they are disruptive. You can start an SPI if you want, and the YouTube thing is powerful, but I'll have to come by and state that there is no technical evidence for that claim. Now, it is possible that there's hanky panky of one of two kinds--either MEATing, or a technical evasion that I do not see, so I won't dismiss it, but there is nothing that I can see. Drmies (talk) 21:08, 29 June 2022 (UTC)
            • If the CU data does not connect the two accounts, I will not open an SPI - at least for now. If the disruption persists, then I will try to understand what is the best way to deal with it. Maybe they improve their editing after all. Thanks again for your time. Cheers, Ktrimi991 (talk) 21:18, 29 June 2022 (UTC)
              • Yeah, sorry. Still, that YouTube thing is bothersome. Drmies (talk) 22:55, 29 June 2022 (UTC)

Prune request

 
(talk page watcher) We can all use some good prunes. Especially chocolate covered with an almond. DFO

Hi there, hope you're well. Would you mind giving the Hyomin article a bit of a prune when you get chance? A few bits seem unnecessary to include to me. I’ve seen you do this with a few other articles hence my asking you as I trust your judgement on what should be removed. Alex (talk) 18:41, 1 July 2022 (UTC)

  • Do you know that a K-pop fan a couple years ago contacted my employer to complain? Threw in a whole bunch of BS accusations, next thing you know I'm at HR, etc. Overly dedicated fans of anything are dangerous. Drmies (talk) 21:17, 1 July 2022 (UTC)
    Wow. And HR called you in for not-at-work BS. SMDH --Deepfriedokra (talk) 22:48, 1 July 2022 (UTC)
  • The K-pop mafia and the K-beauty mafia have gained too much power. Our democracy is at stake. If they join forces with the K-drama mafia, we're doomed. Softlavender (talk) 05:53, 2 July 2022 (UTC)
  • Alex, did you see what happened after my mild and delicate pruning of some of the content? Drmies (talk) 13:39, 2 July 2022 (UTC)
    • I have now, I'm not surprised they decided to revert but some of the edit summaries are.. questionable. I've replied on the talk page though I'm not sure how far that will go. You were called into HR because of Wikipedia activity? Yikes that's taking it to a new level. Alex (talk) 19:06, 2 July 2022 (UTC)
      • It was such obvious BS that it was dealt with quickly. It was not the only time--there's some Indian troll who claimed I got paid to edit Brian Krzanich, in order to obfuscate Intel's illegal dealing in stolen minerals or some crazy shit like that. I had to go and explain that too. Drmies (talk) 20:56, 2 July 2022 (UTC)

Thank you so much

Thank you so much for temp banning that IP range. The last four months on this website have been dreadful with a guy following my every edit. Thank you so much. ~ Pbritti (talk) 01:05, 2 July 2022 (UTC)

  • Sure thing--I saw the latest revert and checked on it. But there's a thing--Ohnoitsjamie, you partially blocked that range for quite a long time, and I blocked them sitewide for three months--is that OK with you? Drmies (talk) 01:12, 2 July 2022 (UTC)
