I am diagnosed with "moderate autism". I am doing and will continue to do my best to be civil, especially when issues with me are raised, especially by newcomers. If any of my edits is uncivil, please address it, so I will stop whatever is considered uncivil. However, civility is subjective. Even so, I will resist doing something considered uncivil until an edit is decided as civil.
Further note, I relinquished my rights to edit "extended confirmed"-protected pages, so I cannot edit those pages at this time.

Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case/The Rambling ManEdit

An arbitration case regarding The Rambling man has now closed and the final decision is viewable at the link above. The following remedies have been enacted:

  1. The Rambling Man (talk · contribs)'s resignation as an administrator is to be considered under controversial circumstances, and so his administrator status may only be regained via a successful request for adminship.
  2. The Rambling Man (talk · contribs) is prohibited from insulting and/or belittling other editors. If The Rambling Man finds himself tempted to engage in prohibited conduct, he is to disengage and either let the matter drop or refer it to another editor to resolve. If however, in the opinion of an uninvolved administrator, The Rambling Man does engage in prohibited conduct, he may be blocked for a duration consistent with the blocking policy. The first four blocks under this provision shall be arbitration enforcement actions and may only be reviewed or appealed at the arbitration enforcement noticeboard. Should a fifth block prove necessary, the blocking administrator must notify the Arbitration Committee of the block via a Request for Clarification and Amendment so that the remedy may be reviewed. The enforcing administrator may also at their discretion fully protect The Rambling Man's talk page for the duration of the block.

    Nothing in this remedy prevents enforcement of policy by uninvolved administrators in the usual way.

  3. The Rambling Man (talk · contribs) and George Ho (talk · contribs) are indefinitely prohibited from interacting with, or commenting on, each other anywhere on Wikipedia (subject to the ordinary exceptions).
  4. George Ho (talk · contribs) is indefinitely restricted from participating in selecting main page content. For clarity, this means he may not participate in:
    1. Any process in which the content of the main page is selected, including Did you know?, In the news, On this day, Today's featured article, Today's featured list, and Today's featured picture.
    2. Any process in which possible problems with the content of the main page are reported, including WP:ERRORS and Talk:Main Page.
    3. Any discussion about the above processes, regardless of venue.
    He may edit articles linked from or eligible to be linked from the main page (e.g., the current featured article) and may participate in content review processes not directly connected to main page content selection (e.g., reviewing Featured article candidates). He may request reconsideration of this restriction twelve months after the enactment of this remedy, and every six months thereafter.
  5. The community is encouraged to review the selection process for the Did you know and In the news sections of the main page. The community is also reminded that they may issue topic bans without the involvement of the Arbitration Committee if consensus shows a user has repeatedly submitted poor content, performed poor reviews, or otherwise disrupted these processes.

Interaction Ban ReminderEdit

Hello,

I’m writing to remind you that as a result of the arbitration case that both you and The Rambling Man are prohibited from interacting with each other, barring the usual exceptions. Recently, you posted questions to the election pages of multiple candidates where you indirectly made reference to The Rambling Man. (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15) Please note that such comments are not permitted under the interaction ban and further instances will result in a block. Best regards, Mike VTalk 22:59, 1 December 2016 (UTC)

I won't do that anymore for now, Mike. Shall I report this the next time it happens? Or can someone else do it? George Ho (talk) 23:51, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
If you are referring to a violation of the interaction ban, you can mention it another admin once. Otherwise, it would be best to avoid all discussion related to The Rambling Man. Mike VTalk 23:55, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
Shall I report his attempts to excuse himself to you, Mike? I felt unease when he made indirect references by saying "canvassing". I was prompted to ask questions when mentioned "canvassed". Is this his actions at the questions subpages excusable? George Ho (talk) 00:11, 2 December 2016 (UTC)
At this point, a warning has been made and I've encouraged him to leave things alone. I think that is sufficient for now. Mike VTalk 00:26, 2 December 2016 (UTC)

Just wanted to drop a note that, as a result of extensive community discussion and numerous issues, the warning issued above has been overturned. [1] Regards, The WordsmithTalk to me 22:36, 16 December 2016 (UTC)

Arbitration enforcement blockEdit

To enforce an arbitration decision and for violating IBAN with The Rambling Man at Talk:2017 (such as the Talk:2017#2017 Manchester Arena bombing section and discussion regarding the "Cholera outbreak"), you have been blocked from editing for a period of 48 hours. You are welcome to edit once the block expires; however, please note that the repetition of similar behavior may result in a longer block or other sanctions.

If you believe this block is unjustified, please read the guide to appealing blocks (specifically this section) before appealing. Place the following on your talk page: {{unblock|reason=Please copy my appeal to the [[WP:AE|arbitration enforcement noticeboard]] or [[WP:AN|administrators' noticeboard]]. Your reason here OR place the reason below this template. ~~~~}}. If you intend to appeal on the arbitration enforcement noticeboard I suggest you use the arbitration enforcement appeals template on your talk page so it can be copied over easily. You may also appeal directly to me (by email), before or instead of appealing on your talk page. Callanecc (talkcontribslogs) 05:35, 7 July 2017 (UTC)


Reminder to administrators: In May 2014, ArbCom adopted the following procedure instructing administrators regarding Arbitration Enforcement blocks: "No administrator may modify a sanction placed by another administrator without: (1) the explicit prior affirmative consent of the enforcing administrator; or (2) prior affirmative agreement for the modification at (a) AE or (b) AN or (c) ARCA (see "Important notes" [in the procedure]). Administrators modifying sanctions out of process may at the discretion of the committee be desysopped."

Orphaned non-free image File:Dermot Morgan February 1993 In Dublin magazine.jpgEdit

 

Thanks for uploading File:Dermot Morgan February 1993 In Dublin magazine.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in section F5 of the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 03:23, 2 January 2019 (UTC)

File:DuckDuckGo logo.svgEdit

Hi, I'm RonBot, a script that checks new non-free file uploads. I have found that the subject image that you recently uploaded was more than 5% in excess of the Non-free content guideline size of 100,000 pixels. I have tagged the image for a standard reduction, which (for jpg/gif/png/svg files) normally happens within a day. Please check the reduced image, and make sure that the image is not excessively corrupted. Other files will be added to Category:Wikipedia non-free file size reduction requests for manual processing. There is a full seven-day period before the original oversized image will be hidden; during that time you might want to consider editing the original image yourself (perhaps an initial crop to allow a smaller reduction or none at all). A formula for the calculation of the desired size can be found at WP:Image resolution, along with instructions on how to tag the image in the rare cases that it requires an oversized image (typically about 0.2% of non-free uploads are tagged as necessarily oversized). Please contact the bot owner if you have any questions, or you can ask them at Wikipedia talk:Non-free content. See User:RonBot for info on how to not get these messages.

Just to tell you that there is nothing personal about the postEdit

Hi This is regarding my response at v:Talk:WikiJournal User Group#Double blind peer review (once again). Let me reassert that there is nothing personal about my response to your post on the topic. I myself have ADHD and share traits with you. However, I also am a professional in the field and tend to understand what ASD and ADHD is about. So just thought of saying hi! If you can do the work-up that I have requested it would be of good utility to the board members at WikiJournal. Thanks for your cooperation. Diptanshu 💬 07:49, 24 March 2019 (UTC)

Opinion request about a disagreement in the Bulgarian WikinewsEdit

I see that you are aware of the disagreement. There is also a verbose discussion at the voting page in the Bulgarian Wikinews.

We in the Bulgarian Wikinews cannot achieve agreement on two topics about this voting. I see that you have suggested filing a request at m:SRM. Is that your suggestion, or you would prefer some other? Also, I will value highly your opinion on that, should you decide to give it.

Thank you in advance, and please accept my apologies for wasting your time with this request. -- Григор Гачев (talk) 18:27, 29 July 2019 (UTC)

Hanging on the TelephoneEdit

If you're asking to decide as to which cover art to use, then files for deletion is not the place since neither picture needs deletion. Instead it'd be better to raise the issue on the article's talk page. However, I don't think there even is an issue, since the infobox displays both versions and there is good reason to display both. Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 18:13, 10 August 2019 (UTC)

@TenPoundHammer: FFD was renamed from "deletion" to "discussion" since WP:NFR was merged into FFD. Also, I disagree with the close since it would look like a supervote or something. Moreover, non-free images don't receive enough attention in article talk pages. If they do, sometimes pre-FFD decisions are harder to enforce. Can you undo the closure and vote "keep both" instead? -- George Ho (talk) 18:59, 10 August 2019 (UTC)
That seems overly pedantic. FFD is for files "which are unneeded or have either free content or non-free content usage concerns." This doesn't seem to be a "usage concern" at all, at least not in the sense that FFD is asking for. I still think an RFC is the better option if you insist, but again, I don't think there's any issue whatsoever since plenty of other articles show more than one single cover depending on market release.

@TenPoundHammer: The FFD is relisted by an admin (not me), citing WP:NFCC#3. Please I invite you to comment at Wikipedia:Files for discussion/2019 August 12 rather than "speedy close" or "close". Thanks. -- George Ho (talk) 19:05, 12 August 2019 (UTC)

Google Code-In 2019 is coming - please mentor some documentation tasks!Edit

Hello,

Google Code-In, Google-organized contest in which the Wikimedia Foundation participates, starts in a few weeks. This contest is about taking high school students into the world of opensource. I'm sending you this message because you recently edited a documentation page at the English Wikipedia.

I would like to ask you to take part in Google Code-In as a mentor. That would mean to prepare at least one task (it can be documentation related, or something else - the other categories are Code, Design, Quality Assurance and Outreach) for the participants, and help the student to complete it. Please sign up at the contest page and send us your Google account address to google-code-in-admins@lists.wikimedia.org, so we can invite you in!

From my own experience, Google Code-In can be fun, you can make several new friends, attract new people to your wiki and make them part of your community.

If you have any questions, please let us know at google-code-in-admins@lists.wikimedia.org.

Thank you!
