Template:look uselessEdit

Hi there Michaeldsuarez, can you remove {{Looks useless}} from your userpages? Because it's messing with this category Category:Looks useless. Thank you.--AldNonymousBicara? 15:35, 6 April 2015 (UTC)

MaintenanceEdit

Thank you for your recent file maintenance. I was wondering why you don't just move the obvious ones to Commons yourself though. Is there any particular reason? PiRSquared17 (talk) 12:53, 11 April 2015 (UTC)

CaveatEdit

Please do not add "move to Wikimedia Commons" suggestions for {{not orphan}} files linked locally. It can only cause havoc if file types not permitted on commons, with a recent "no consensus" to change this, are queued in a transwiki to commons category. Some cases I'm aware of are DIA, DOC, SXI, and SXI disguised as broken PNG, but there were more oddities in the "unused files" tracking category. It's obvious, if Meta can't show a preview commons also won't show a preview, and at that point it's too broken or too obscure to touch it outside deletion debates or some serious download, repair, upload attempt. –Be..anyone (talk) 21:42, 14 April 2015 (UTC)

Requests for comment/Support collaboration on Pashto Wikipedia/RequestsEdit

This is a process that I tested at one point on Wikiversity. It works. The facilitators in a process like this are clerks, not administrators (though an administrator may serve as a facilitator). The person whose request you copied to SN properly filed the request on that page. Yes, no facilitator can action the request, but that is not the job of facilitator. The term "facilitator" was used because that is what professionals who do the work of generating consensus call themselves.

The requestor was blocked for various reasons. Some may have been illegitimate, but the user also socked. The block/unblock is obviously controversial, and so discussion should take place before steward action. Time must be allowed for that. Otherwise we may see very irregular response from stewards. The point is to get all the ducks in a row before directly requesting action. This is how I see it happening:

A request will be open for a few days, probably at a minimum. (If there are requests that are not controversial, they can be made directly to stewards. An unblock request is obviously controversial. Remember, there has been no determination that the blocking admin was "wrong." Rather, there was wheel-warring and lack of clear local consensus for controversial actions.

When any necessary notices are verified as having been filed, when there has been time for review, when a facilitator assesses that there is sufficient consensus -- or at least lack of opposition -- then a facilitator will present a conclusion on the top-level RfC page. That is why I request that stewards and global sysops watch that page. They do not need to watch all the traffic below. The top level page will refer to the discussion, so the action of the facilitator may be reviewed if desired.

It takes a bit of time, but this will be very strong and effective.

Facilitators will not allow incivility on these pages. It will be moved to Talk or if it is gross, simply blanked. What I've noticed, so far, is that the users seem to understand that. However, the process has not gone very far, it's still in set-up.

Meta has little experience with facilitated process. So far, however, it seems there is tolerance, which is a good sign.

My goal is to encourage these users to start cooperating with each other, and they will discover this: whatever they agree upon can be done. If they fight, much less gets done. Natural consequences.

How about volunteering as a facilitator? Watch what I do. Fix errors. Handle requests. Etc. --Abd (talk) 15:07, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

Thank you so much !Edit

Thank you Adjutor101 (talk) 15:34, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

Your request discussion is set up at Requests for comment/Support collaboration on Pashto Wikipedia/Requests/Adjutor101. There are some questions for you there. I will also see that the blocking admin is notified (even though he is not an admin any more, he was, and we must respect that, even if ultimately his action may be reversed.) Please be patient, doing this right will take a little time. Not long, though. You may also volunteer as a Translator for the RfC project. We need to have a number of those, so that we can avoid a possible problem from biased translation. To volunteer, add your name to Requests for comment/Support collaboration on Pashto Wikipedia/Translators. --Abd (talk) 17:07, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

ThanksEdit

For all the image work - appreciated --Herby talk thyme 15:15, 5 May 2015 (UTC)

Wikidramas — scope of metaEdit

Hi. This is meta, a site for coordinating wikimedia activities. It is not a site for dramas at other wikis, please keep within scope. I have shut down the conversation at Wikimedia Forum and redacted parts of the conversation that became identifying people in real life. Please respect all relevant components of our scope, and if you wish to pursue issues at other sites, that you do that at other sites, not here.  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:53, 13 April 2018 (UTC)

EmailEdit

Michael I would like to resolve things with you on email. You know my email since it is public. If you don't want me to know your real email you could easily create a throwaway account.Largewarhammer (talk) 18:07, 14 April 2018 (UTC)

Your ED talk-page just gets locked, and Lulzkiller then blocks both mine and Mikemikev's accounts; Mike was posting as dave50. There's near consensus to delete all the articles, so try again. And be cautious, anything Mike will email about me to you will be lies.Largewarhammer (talk) 19:49, 17 April 2018 (UTC)
Mikemikev attacks you behind your back.Largewarhammer (talk) 19:55, 17 April 2018 (UTC)
I would also appreciate if you told Abd he is wrong about the Mikemikev sockpuppet investigations on Wikipedia. I've never travelled to Birkbeck College before and the idea I've done that to 'impersonate' mike or his IP is ridiculous. All the accounts here (excluding an extreme minority of mistakes) are Mikemikev's and it is blatantly obvious based on behavioural evidence. Lomax denying this is to spread misinformation about me. As I said on ED to you - I don't want to be wrongly accused of owning Mikemikev's accounts since they post racism, holocaust denial etc and so Abd is making potentially defamatory claims.Largewarhammer (talk) 20:07, 17 April 2018 (UTC)
I sent Abd an Email. I don't believe that you would travel to Birkbeck College just to impersonate someone else. --Michaeldsuarez (talk) 23:26, 17 April 2018 (UTC)
Lock my ED article talk-page so only admins can edit it because its now a battleground. And Lomax isn't taking down any of his misinformation from his blog about me; there's no further point in trying to reason with him since he isn't interested in the truth. And if my article talk is locked to prevent Abd/Mikemikev etc, I would no longer show up on ED. Since the article and its talk page isn't getting deleted, I would prefer it to just be inactive.Largewarhammer (talk) 23:29, 19 April 2018 (UTC)
Final comment: I don't think if you deleted the rome viharo article it would be restored. Lulzkiller doesn't care about viharo.Largewarhammer (talk) 23:32, 19 April 2018 (UTC)
The talk page has been locked. I don't think that I can delete the Rome Viharo article. I'm no longer permitted to delete content on my own. The other sysops don't want me deleting anything. --Michaeldsuarez (talk) 11:05, 20 April 2018 (UTC)

To EverybodyEdit

I'm "Real Michaeldsuarez". --Michaeldsuarez (talk) 14:06, 20 December 2018 (UTC)

Hi Michael, the Matthew aka Skeptic from Britain account was blanked and no longer exists. Whatever misinformation you're trying to spread about it - won't stick; the account no longer exists.MountandBlade44 (talk) 17:10, 20 December 2018 (UTC)
You're the one spreading about that account: [1], [2], [3], [4]. Plus, the account wasn't "deleted"; it was merely renamed. All wrongdoings are recorded; you can't make them disappear. --Michaeldsuarez (talk) 17:17, 29 December 2018 (UTC)
