Site Restitutio Benjamin Fondane

Bonjour,


nous souhaiterions savoir qui vous êtes et pourquoi vous effacez systématiquement le lien vers le site fondane.eu , lien que nous publions sur Wikipedia, à la page de Benjamin Fondane.

Le site fondane.eu sera actif sous peu. Il contiendra des textes de Benjamin Fondane - en français ou en traduction roumaine -, ainsi que des textes critiques (ou assimilés).

Alors, peut-être pourriez-vous réparer cette erreur... D'ailleurs, je constate, d'après l'historique des pages consacrées a Fondane, que l'effacement de notre lien est pratiqué également par un autre utilisateur - un certain "Darkoneko", dont nous ignorons l'identité.

Merci de nous éclairer et de reposter le lien sur les sites respectifs. Ou de m'autoriser à le faire - si vous n'y voyez pas d'inconvénient.

Amitiés,

Luiza Palanciuc et Mihai Sora

I removed these links because it seems you are inappropriately promoting it. You can suggest links for inclusion on the discussion page of any article. If the authors of that article believe the link would enhance the article, they will add it.

J'ai supprimé ces liens, car il semble que vous êtes de façon inappropriée promotion. Vous pouvez proposer des liens pour l'inscription sur la page de discussion de tout article. Si les auteurs de cet article, pense que le lien permettrait d'améliorer l'article, ils vont ajouter.

 — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 19:18, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

Nous ne comprenons pas... Mis à part votre français assez faible, nous ne comprenons pas les raisons de la suppression du lien fondane.eu .

Cela s'apparente a du vandalisme: précisément ce que vous êtes censé dénoncer.

Qui plus est, sous couvert de l'anonymat.

Dommage.

Luiza Palanciuc et Mihai Sora

Impossible de comprendre le vandalisme de ce "Mike" (mike.lifeguard): pourquoi? pourquoi tant de haine? Qui derange-t-on en publiant un simple lien vers le site de Benjamin Fondane: fondane.eu ?

C'est triste de voir que ceux qui doivent veiller et empecher le vandalisme sur Wikipedia se comportent comme les pires des ignorants. La betise n'a jamais tue personne, il est vrai. Mais elle peut faire beaucoup de mal.

Retrieved from User:COIBot/XWiki/fondane.eu

According to User:COIBot/XWiki/fondane.eu, you have been adding links on every language edition possible without regard for whether doing so makes the article better. The site appears to have no content. So, I cannot see how adding the link helps any of these articles. Even if the site did have content, it would probably only make sense to add the link in French Wikipedia (and possibly some related languages). Instead, you are simply adding a link to your own site which doesn't help our articles. That is not what Wikipedia is for - you should stop. Instead, you're welcome to suggest including the link on the talk page of any article - if other authors agree they will add it. Thanks  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 13:39, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Traduction

D'après User:COIBot/XWiki/fondane.eu, vous avez ajouté ce lien sur toutes les langues possibles de Wikipédia, sans faire attention à améliorer l'article. Ce site ne semble pas avoir de contenu. Donc, je ne vois pas en quoi l'ajout de ce lien aidera quoi que ce soit sur ces articles. Même si le site n'était pas vide, cela aurait plus de sens d'ajouter ce lien sur la Wikipédia francophone (et éventuellement quelques autres langues). En outre, vous ajoutez un lien vers votre site, ce qui n'aide pas nos articles. Wikipédia n'est pas censée servir à cela - vous devriez vous arrêter. Toutefois, vous pouvez très bien proposer l'ajout de ce lien sur la page de discussion de chaque article - si les autres contributeurs sont d'accord, ils l'ajouteront. Merci.


Le site fondane.eu sera actif sous peu.

Avant de supprimer un lien, il serait peut-etre plus intelligent de voir de quoi il s'agit, de contacter les personnes qui - elles - ne sont pas anonymes!, de voir si la presence de ce lien nuit au bon fonctionnement de la page respective. Vos methodes sont abusives. C'est ce que nous deplorons.

Nous ferons les corrections necessaires sur les pages de Benjamin Fondane, car elles contiennent toutes des erreurs. Par exemple, sur la page roumaine, nous avons deja corrige "Barbu", car Fundoianu ne s'appelait pas ainsi, il ne signait qu'avec l'initiale de son prenom. Mais il est impossible d'intervenir en haut, la ou apparait le titre de la page, pour mettre juste "B."

Par ailleurs, si vous etiez moins abusif et plus respectueux du travail des gens, alors peut-etre - en effet - les gens auraient davantage envie de travailler sur Wikipedia. Personellement, cela nous degoute, a present. Car nous detestons ce genre de totalitarisme. Et - sur le totalitarisme - nous en connaissons un rayon.

Cordialement, Luiza Palanciuc et Mihai Sora


Impossible de comprendre votre acharnement. Le lien vers le site fondane.eu est a present sur la liste noire, par vos bons soins.

Autrement dit: lorsque quelqu'un commence a travailler sur les pages, la premiere des choses que vous faites, c'est de vandaliser toutes ses contributions. Sans nul critere et sous couvert d'anonymat.

Toutes les pages de Fondane contiennent des erreurs ou des inexactitudes. Mais avec vos methodes abusives, vous degoutez les gens de travailler sur Wikipedia et de corriger quoi que ce soit.


Bonjour − je vais répondre à la place de Mike.lifeguard puique vous ne voulez / pouvez pas parler anglais.
Les liens externes sont la dernière chose à placer dans une page. Sachez que si un lien externe ne fonctionne pas, nous ne perdrons pas de temps à contacter l'auteur de ce site − souvent injoignable. Un lien externe ne sert qu'à deux choses (recommandation de fr.wikipedia) :
  • Sourcer le contenu d'un article (j'ai bien dit sourcer, rien d'autre), dans la mesure du possible, sinon,
  • Servir de suite encyclopédique à l'article − donc un lien externe menant vers un site qui contient des informations qui ne sont PAS dans l'article.
Inutile d'ajouter un lien qui peut, d'après vous, intéresser des gens. La politique de la fondation Wikimédia est de tirer à vue sur les ajouts massifs − comme ceux que vous avez fait − de liens externes qui n'apportent rien à l'article, en particulier des ajouts (auto)promotionnels. Inutile de répondre que « beaucoup d'articles ont des liens qui ne correspondent pas à ces deux critères », nous sommes au courant, et nous faisons ce que nous pouvons pour corriger cela.
Il n'y a absolument pas de « totalitarisme » dans cette histoire. Wikipédia ainsi que tous les autres wikis de la fondation Wikimédia n'ont absolument pas de hiérachie. C'est pour cela qu'il est conseillé avant d'ajouter ce type de liens d'en parler sur la page de discussion de l'article en question.
Inutile de mettre en cause l'anonymat de Mike.lifeguard, je ne vois pas qu'est-ce que cela change et de toute façon, il n'est pas plus anonyme que vous (son identité civile est facilement trouvable).
Si vous souhaitez corriger un article, vous êtes libre de le faire tout en prenant soin des principes fondateurs.
Merci de votre compréhension.
Si vous avez d'autres question à poser, je serai ravis de vous répondre sur ma page de discussion sur fr.wikipedia.org.

Elfix, thank you so much for helping me with this. Your comments are 100% correct.  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 15:43, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

Bonjour,

Le "Mike" anonyme déclare comprendre le français... Où est donc le problème lorsqu'il reçoit des messages en français? Si son niveau en français ne correspond pas à une compréhension (minimale), alors il serait opportun de modifier cette information sur sa page personnelle... Par respect pour les utilisateurs de Wikipedia.

Ceci dit, nous ajouterons tout de même le lien vers le site fondane.eu , des que celui-ci sera actif. Ce n'est pas un ajout (auto)promotionnel: ce sont les textes de Fondane qui se trouvent sur ce site... Et non pas les... 3 Suisses.

Amicalement, Luiza Palanciuc & Mihai Sora

I can understand you perfectly. What you fail to realize is that linking to this domain does not enhance the content of the articles. Furthermore, you've promoted it inappropriately on our wikis, which is considered disruptive. As such, the domain has been blacklisted & blocks placed.  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 21:39, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Thank you

Hi Mike,

Thank you for your help with that vandal at pt.wikibooks. - Jorge Morais 02:16, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

Not a problem at all. When online, it is often helpful for sysops of smaller wikis to join #wikimedia-admin to better coordinate such efforts. Any sysops from ptwikibooks who wish to idle in that channel can certainly ask me for access. See IRC/wikimedia-admin for more information.  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 03:44, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

User:COIBot/XWiki/rhye.civfanatics.net

Some more advice regarding this one would be appreciated, comment there or ping me if preferred. Regards, Finn Rindahl 10:41, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

Never mind, A.B. took care of it :) Finn Rindahl 14:49, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

RfC...

I'm trying to learn the Xwiki spam business, and in particular I find inappropriate linkpushing of valid links difficult to deal with. I gathered some link-/ip summaries here User:Finnrind/tatry (for lack of a better place, I'm not proposing to add this to BL), and would appreciate your comment on it at your convenience. It's not an urgent matter. (crossposting at A.B. and Mike.L, anyone else who gets curious feel free to comment too...) Regards, Finn Rindahl 13:15, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

Like to get involved with COIbot and spam reports

Hi there. I'd love to start helping with anti-spam work and COIbot, however, I don't know where to begin. Could you help me by chance? Cheers, Razorflame 19:04, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

Please start with User:Mike.lifeguard/Screencasts  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 19:11, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
Will do as soon as I get home. :). Cheers, Razorflame 19:23, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
Apart from that you get to hear Mike saying "errr" 349 times it's actually quite useful :) Finn Rindahl 19:28, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

Wikispecies

I have no problem using your tools to help out with vandalism, so to help you out with the "adjustment", I've made you a sysop there. (Of course if you don't really want to be one, you can still do admin stuff without being a permanent one ;-) ) Consider this half-April Foolery (the opportunity just presented itself...) and half-seriousness (there's really no problem in blocking/reverting/deleting vandals when no local sysop is there). Maxim(talk) 19:21, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

OK, thank you. Can I suggest that any wikispecies admins may wish to join #wikimedia-admin so they are reachable in such circumstances? I hesitated only because in the past some on Wikispecies have been less than thrilled when stewards have placed blocks etc - thank you for clarifying that for me.  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 19:58, 27 March 2009 (UTC)
Speaking as the resident vandal whacker (not on behalf of all sysops), I have no problem with stewards helping. I seem to be the only regular admin who uses IRC (OhanaUnited uses it rarely), but I don't monitor WikiSpecies regularly (I check a few times a day for speedies/unreverted vandalism), and I'm not really in IRC all that much (or editing at all, actually), but I have posted a note suggesting joining that channel. Maxim(talk) 20:02, 27 March 2009 (UTC)
You are no different from other stewards and I don't want to see any preferential treatments. Mike, please remove your sysop flag from Wikispecies to stop further drama. OhanaUnitedTalk page 03:03, 29 March 2009 (UTC)
I wasn't aware there was any drama. Nevertheless, I don't need it, so I'll of course remove myself from the user group. Clarification of the Wikispecies community's attitude regarding stewards blocking vandals would be welcome - as a group we've had less than stellar experiences when trying to help.  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 03:15, 29 March 2009 (UTC)
Our policy is that if stewards want local rights, they should request it formally at Requests for adminship / bureaucratship. Maxim, if you're reading this, you asked User:DerHexer not to do the same thing[1], how ironic. OhanaUnitedTalk page 03:25, 29 March 2009 (UTC)
Perhaps he changed his stance on the idea since last June? Majorly talk 03:30, 29 March 2009 (UTC)
Somewhat unsurprisingly, that's exactly what happened. MelosMaxim's (:p Maxim(talk) 13:40, 29 March 2009 (UTC)) exact words were "I threatened to block DerHexer but then I saw reason"  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 03:38, 29 March 2009 (UTC)
Heh, yes. It was late when I wrote that :D  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 22:08, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

Trouble

Hello Mike, I have a problem. Since yesterday all my javascript stopped working. It was SBHandler and removespam.js. Is something wrong?. I saw you deleted the removespam.js page so I'd like to ask you if I can copy the content in a subpage or something. Many thanks in advance. I was listening to the screencasts you did and I've found them quite useful, thanks . —Dferg (talk) 18:20, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

Forgot all, seems to have been all resolved (something in MediaWiki could be...). Thanks anyway and sorry to bug you :( —Dferg (talk) 19:01, 29 March 2009 (UTC)
Yes, I moved some scripts around to match what's in SVN. All that's needed is browser cache to be cleared.  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 22:07, 29 March 2009 (UTC)
Done, SBHandler and other scripts working again :D. Thanks again. —Dferg (talk) 09:40, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

SWMT

I have recently joined the SWMT and I was wondering how long I should wait before moving my name from "New members" to "Active members". GT5162 16:45, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

  • AFAICT, you added your name yesterday - that's still "new" in my books :)  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 16:46, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
    • Also that page does not really matter, people can write their names there wherever they want, but if it comes to evaluate crosswiki activity because of rights granting or something else, we know very well who is really active and who is not, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 19:58, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
    That's certainly true, but I do prefer that the page at least attempt to reflect reality.  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 20:07, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

uk:s:Дебати між В.Ющенком і В.Януковичем

  • Hi, I'm quite surprised that you deleted said article without any communication with local admin (I'm the one). Would you please provide me with appropriate explanation(s)? --pavlosh 22:39, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
The page was created with {{delete}} in it already. If doing so was incorrect, you might want to double-check the other deletions I made that day.  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 23:02, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for reply. Yes, there was a specific (even strange) story with that article. The very essence of my question was: why any deletion activity before you communicated with local admin? Same thing on uk:Wikiquote project - your deletion activity prior to any communication with local admin. --pavlosh 23:23, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
At the time, it looked like you were not active. I'll make a note that there is someone taking care of these wikis.  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 23:41, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
I will appreciate that. --pavlosh 23:47, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

Hugo.arg@gnwiki

I was doing some SWMT patrolling and I found that this user, who is an administrator on gnwiki, is creating articles with very little context and then reverting my edits without an explanation when I add a {{delete}} template to him. Please could you look at my SRSD request here. Thanks. GT5162 (我的对话页) 21:37, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

Hello Mike. How can I get acces to wikimedia-admin? I am a sysop on bs.wiki and my registered nick is Seha and i use X-Chat. If you need more. please let me know. Thanks. --Seha 06:30, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

I need your cloak too, if you have one. I'll do this later today.  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 12:57, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
I don't think (s)he has one. Cbrown1023 talk 15:08, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
Seha, you can use /msg chanserv invite #wikimedia-admin to get in. When you get a cloak, just let me know.  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 16:23, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
Ok I gonna make it later this evening. THX
PS: cloak wikipedia/Seha --Seha 17:24, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
Added that. Once you get the cloak, you'll be able to enter the channel without asking ChanServ.  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 19:59, 12 April 2009 (UTC)

DPL on nl.wikipedia

Hello, I've noticie that you changed the status of this bugreport to FIXED. At first this made me very happy, because I am waiting for this to be fixed for years. However, it seems that it is incorrect, as far as I can see, because it is in fact not installed on nl.wikipedia. You can see on this testpage of mine that it is not working: nl:Gebruiker:Magalhães/DynamicPageList). Can you please revert your edit? Magalhães 09:34, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

Sorry, I was wrong. I guess I was looking at a different nl project. I've reopened the bug.  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 15:24, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

Cross-wiki vandal

Greetings! Regarding this one, you may wish to block the equivalent range at 66.99.0.0/22 (it's actually 64.107.0.0/22 -- I've never seen him at the /21 or /20). Both are the Chicago Public library and it's one of his most frequent haunts; I hard-blocked it on en: recently. All those vandals on Jimbo's page, Juliancolton's, and yours are the same person, and if they're not in Chicago they are open proxies. Thanks for your help with this pest; the global blocks are helping. Cheers, Antandrus 02:42, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

Thanks - I've done a 1-month block for both ranges - hopefully won't be too much collateral (& if enwiki has hardblocked, probably worth any hassle)  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 14:48, 17 April 2009 (UTC)
