The State of Play: Pushing through Torpid Seas of Molasses

So where are we? Wikipediocracy's last blog post was two weeks from Christmas, 2017. Meanwhile I've cranked out six posts in the three months, but I can get away with that because this blog goes outside of WikiLand, and it has to, because not a lot is happening inside Wikipedia. The one page that gets the most use by me is the pointless Wikimedia "global ban list", because James "Buffet Master" Alexander has been throwing editors out at an irregular rate of one or two almost every month since Spring of 2017, which means that whomever is still editing Wikipedia is living in fear of being thrown out for sockpuppeting or being annoying to the shrinking number of Big Wheels involved with The Project, even though it seems like most of the active editors are sockpuppeting (much like how Citizen's Band operators are using illegal "export model" radios and talking to each other in narrowband FM mode using fifty watts of power* - the illegal/banned modes or methods have become the norm because policing is half-assed.)

The real problem within Wikipeda-criticism is that you have to either never have been a member (like yours truly) or you don't want back in for the criticism to be serious. It was made quite clear that Wikipediocracy is unwilling to aim at real criticism when William "Monty" Burns was in the group photo of Wikiconference USA 2016, front row far right. And it's getting harder even if you are serious in your criticism of Jimbo Wales' zoo because Wikipedia is slowing down faster and faster from editor loss, indiscriminate 'bot use, and idiotic unwillingness to let experts (especially biologists) come in and fill all those red columns of obscure viruses, or just hire a squad of copyeditors to rework numerous articles into readability. None of that will happen - it will all just slowly stop and lock down and the 'bots will be running around to stop article vandalism from script kiddies who will be using Wikipedia as a testing ground to leave "markers" behind after they break into the locked site. And the entropy comes back around to this very blog, because we will be stuck writing about Wikipedia as history due to all the material we have on the place. I can do that for a while, but sooner or later people will stop looking at this blog (even though our most looked-at post is the one on Jon Schillaci, Wikipedia's fleeing child molester.) We are just riding the wave until the board hits the beach.

If you are interested in Russia, check out The Russian Reader and Sean's Russia Blog. The former is more "life on the streets" the latter is now mostly a site to link together Sean Guillory's interviews with academics on Russian and Soviet history, Russian culture, etc. Don't mention Guillory to the St. Petersberger who runs TRR; it's just easier if you don't.


* American legal CB is four watts and AM or Single-Side Band (Upper or Lower) mode; all CB is channelized, with the US doing forty channels and some other countries (Germany) doing up to eighty channels. FM is for Europe and Asia; Australia and some other Asian states use a small chunk of the UHF business radio band for CB. The FCC stuck it at four watts (with a ten to twelve watt "swing" depending on how loud the operator is talking) because eleven meters is one of those frequency bands that can occasionally "skip" thanks to tropospheric ducting and you can be heard hundreds to thousands of miles away. The "export" transceivers used to be fifteen to twenty watts but the output transistors can now easily run fifty watts, negating the need for a low-end linear amplifier. Such an amplifier can blast out anywhere from twenty to a thousand watts, depending on how big a check the CB'er cuts to the radio store clerk the day the amplifier is bought.

[20:04] <VanTucky> if you think it's really FA-class, just don't do GA

[21:48] <Crimedog> Soft redirects only work on other wikimedia projects right?

[21:49] <Gracenotes> soft redirects in the technical sense of the term work for anything on our interwiki map.
[21:49] <MZMcBride> What?
[21:49] <Gracenotes> say what?
[21:49] <MZMcBride> "Soft redirects" don't do anything. That's the point.
[21:49] <Crimedog> So you can soft redirect to meatball
[21:49] <TenPoundHammer> lol
[21:49] <Gracenotes> MZMcBride: by which I mean #REDIRECTs which display as redirects but are merely links

[21:54] <TenPoundHammer> east718|away: you wanna tell him that?
[21:54] <Gracenotes> Crimedog: basically, those in favor of deleting that main article created other allegations of apartheid articles and voted keep on their AFDs to make a POINT
[21:54] <MBisanz> why am I surprised a bcat made such a horrific template.
[21:54] <east718|away> TenPoundHammer > less violent wars have been fought than the one over allegations...
[21:54] <Gracenotes> a bit of a simplification, I guess, but at least that's what the charges against them were. I'd tend to agree.
[21:55] <Gracenotes> MBisanz: that template is insulting to those who do not have intelligence. I demand we delete it immediately!
[21:55] <DarkoNeko> usually, something offend more the intelligence than the stupidity
[21:56] <east718|away> is pretty ._.

[22:16] <MZMcBride> And we don't put countdown timers in articles.
[22:16] <MZMcBride> Do I really need to write that down somewhere?
[22:16] <quanticle> Furry_Fury: Are you affiliated with the subject matter of the article in any way, shape, or form?
[22:17] <east718|away> You should then either follow NPOV to the letter or stay away from all Insomniac articles.
[22:17] <quanticle> Furry_Fury: If you are, then there's COI

[22:18] <east718|away> "If he attempts to remove this article from the talk page however, he *will* have an edit war"

[22:22] <TenPoundHammer> ugh, help here
[22:22] <east718|away> well, a countdown timer is just plain silly. it may come as a shock to new people and those that haven't been properly encultured, but we don't really work based on what the arbitrarily designed rules say.
[22:22] <CWii> good night
[22:22] <Gracenotes> it dilutes Wikipedia's reliability in case an event does not occur
[22:22] <Furry_Fury> and why that outweights the benifit of haveing it there

[22:28] <Gracenotes> Furry_Fury: WP's role as an encyclopedia, perhaps. We are a website, but we're also a database of encyclopedic content. giving content temporal features like that is unnecessary
[22:28] <Furry_Fury> unnecessary...
[22:28] <Furry_Fury> ok..
[22:29] <Gracenotes> also a matter of preferences is involved. if people find it aesthetically displeasing, then their subjective perception of it does matter a bit...
[22:29] <Furry_Fury> now what makes that more unnecessary that the rest of the article..
[22:30] <Furry_Fury> a facts are not opinions...
[22:30] <Gracenotes> well, it's not actually content. it's redundant. another problem might be that for anonymous users, since they would view an old timestamp whenever they visited a page
[22:30] <Furry_Fury> i added a refresh button
[22:30] * Juliancolton (i=4579f4ad@gateway/web/ajax/ Quit (" Obai" )
[22:30] <Furry_Fury> they click it... it refreshs
[22:31] <TenPoundHammer> Furry_Fury: Which article?
[22:31] <Gracenotes> how will that work? anonymous users can't purge pages.
[22:31] * giggy (n=Alex@Wikipedia/Giggy) has joined #wikipedia-en
[22:31] <Furry_Fury> Gracenotes>    how will that work? anonymous users can't purge pages.
[22:31] <Gracenotes> except in a POST request, which a simple click won't do
[22:31] <Furry_Fury> there u might have an arugment
[22:32] <Furry_Fury> there is my first actual reason..
[22:32] <Furry_Fury> for non users the refresh button wont work..
[22:32] <Furry_Fury> thus creating inaccurate data
[22:32] <Gracenotes> they could cause the cache to become invalidated with a null edit
[22:32] <Gracenotes> but I'm not sure they're know how to do that...
[22:34] <Furry_Fury> so the pruge wont work unless they have a wiki account
[22:34] <Furry_Fury> that is indeed a problem..
[22:34] <Monobi> PURGE :-O
[22:35] <Furry_Fury> so i cant type... big whoop...

[17:35] <Monobi> gfngr, yes, you're correct, wikipedia is communism

[17:35] * Shanel (n=Shanel@wikimedia/Shanel) Quit (Nick collision from services. )

[17:36] <Nowknownas> Removed
[17:36] <Scetoaux> How does raiding uncyclopedia and proclaiming proudly that you're Wikipedians spread a positive image of the online encyclopedia?
[17:36] <ffm> gfngr: For a dictonary, see wikitionary.
[17:36] <Monobi> Scetoaux, no, because everyone is treated as a supposed equal while a small group of bureaucratic users run the system
[17:37] <Monobi> Scetoaux, it has nothing to do with licensing
[17:37] <Scetoaux> Monobi: I was joking in that case as well
[17:37] <CWii> lol
[17:37] <Monobi> Back to games
[17:37] <Malinaccier> That was fun, lol

[17:37] <MBisanz> Monobi, what is your opinion on the Global Sysop proposal
[17:37] <WBOSITG> lol
[17:37] <MBisanz> and the policy in response to it
[17:37] <Scarian> Us Wikipedian's don't fair well against people that l33t speak :-/

[17:37] * Cream is watching trough a sockpuppet
[17:37] <Malinaccier> lol
[17:37] <Monobi> MBisanz, and, I haven't seen policy regrading it
[17:38] <CWii> WBOSITG, lol
[17:38] <Monobi> Just the ideas on meta
[17:38] <gfngr> Wikipedia will never be 100% accurate so why not incorperate topics that are somewhat notable.
[17:38] <Scetoaux> What global sysop proposal?
[17:38] <Scarian> Cream: Were you even in Uncyclopedia?!
[17:38] <WBOSITG> gfngr, you are hereby shot

[17:38] <WBOSITG> HAHA
[17:38] <Scetoaux> gfngr: No, because there is no indication that any individual pokemon, except possibly pikachu, is notable in itself

[17:39] <Scarian> Why'd I get banned?
[17:39] <Nowknownas> gfngr, please give it up, drop it, set it on fire, then forget about it, it is not going to happen.
[17:39] <Scarian> Actually...
[17:39] <Scetoaux> so it's not like that proposal where adminship would be awarded like rollback
[17:39] <Scarian> Why do I even care?
[17:39] <Malinaccier> Cuz you probably blocked whoever banned you, Scarian
[17:39] <WBOSITG> but you were BANNINatied/

[17:56] <Scarian> Malinaccier: I'd support a close.
[17:56] <Scetoaux> the IP was extraordinarily static
[17:56] <Malinaccier> Scarian: so go ahead?
[17:56] <Scarian> Malinaccier: Ja but don't mention anything about an IRC consensus.
[17:56] <Scarian> ;)
[17:56] <Malinaccier> lol
[17:56] * Luna-San (n=goodysan@wikimedia/Luna-Santin) has joined #wikipedia-en
[17:56] <Golbez> "everybody realized that if you gave him an enema he would fit in a matchbox" That's brilliant prose.
[17:56] * Howcheng|away is now known as Howcheng
[17:56] <MBisanz> Scarian that IP is still active
[17:56] <Scetoaux> What are you closing it as?
[17:56] <MBisanz> 22,000 edits
[17:56] <WBOSITG> Don't Mention the war
[17:56] <Malinaccier> Keep
[17:56] <Nowknownas> gfngr, posting petitions on your page is not helping your cause, also, it's worth noting that many people here are admins (apart from me)
[17:56] <Scarian> MBisanz: The genre troll one?
[17:56] <WBOSITG> Malinaccier, don't close.
[17:57] <WBOSITG> Please
[17:57] <MBisanz> no, the IP nommed for adminship
[17:57] <WBOSITG> There are somw deletes there.
[17:57] <Scarian> MBisanz: It wasn't me who asked :S
[17:57] <ffm> MBisanz: Can  a static IP be nommed for adminship?
[17:57] <WBOSITG> You'd probably end up on ANI
[17:57] <Malinaccier> WBOSITG: hmm
[17:57] <Malinaccier> maybe
[17:57] <MBisanz> ffm yes
[17:57] <Malinaccier> idk...that's why I asked here first
[17:57] <Scetoaux> ffm: No, actually
[17:57] <Scetoaux> I guess in theory
[17:57] <WBOSITG> Well, let it run
[17:57] <MBisanz> the criteria is that if he accepts, he must register an account and a CU must confirm
[17:57] <Cream> someone nominate me :D
[17:58] <Scarian> MBisanz: What was his IP?
[17:58] <Scetoaux> yeah, MBisanz basically said it
[17:58] <Cream> MBisanz, and a bureaucrat must link the contribs
[17:58] <Scarian> 156.X?
[17:58] * WBOSITG nominates Cream
[17:58] <Malinaccier> MBisanz: is he actually gonna register?
[17:58] * Nowknownas nominates make him a coffee
[17:58] <Scetoaux> no
[17:58] <MBisanz> the IP I was thinking of? no
[17:58] <Malinaccier> darn
[17:58] <MBisanz> he refuses consistently
[17:58] * WBOSITG watches Cream fail due to the "per IRC" nom statement"
[17:58] <Scetoaux> he's been refusing for years
[17:58] <Malinaccier> MBisanz: I saw his RFA...
[17:58] <Chetblong> Cream: gimme coffe
[17:58] <east718|away> MBisanz > 238.
[17:58] <Scetoaux> since before I even registered, afaik
[17:58] <Chetblong> *coffee
[17:58] <east718|away> 156 is libs. ^_^
[17:58] <Prodego> ffm: it is impossible to make an IP a sysop
[17:58] <WBOSITG> east718|away < WBOSITG < 300012
[17:58] <Scarian> east718|away: Did you see his new account?
[17:59] <east718|away> :o account? where?
[17:59] * Tinkleheimer ( Quit (Connection reset by peer )
[17:59] * Tinkleheimer ( has joined #wikipedia-en
[17:59] <Majorly> o hai Chetblong
[17:59] <WBOSITG> Prodego, unless the IP makes an account.
[17:59] <WBOSITG> :)
[17:59] <Scetoaux> yeah, WBOSITG
[17:59] <Chetblong> hey Maj o rly?
[17:59] <Malinaccier> WBOSITG: alright, I'll leave it for a day or two
[17:59] <Prodego> WBOSITG: well then you aren't an IP anymore
[18:00] <Scetoaux> but the point is, it is technically impossible to apply sysop rights to the IP address alone
[18:00] <Scarian> Is the IP a good contributor?
[18:00] <Soxred93>  I'm having an internal debate on whether to accept an RfA nom right as school ends, when I have time, or to wait to July.
[18:00] <gfngr> wait why wont he make an acount
[18:00] <gfngr> it take like 1 min
[18:00] <Scarian> gfngr: Apparently.
[18:00] <Majorly> Soxred93, don't accept ever
[18:00] <Scetoaux> Just as that IP address can't use Twinkle, for example, because it requires a user configuration subpage
[18:00] <Malinaccier> Scarian: 22K edits
[18:00] <Scetoaux> it requires the ability to edit the monobook.js
[18:00] <Scarian> They should make it hard for people to make accounts...
[18:00] <Scarian> It'd weed out a lot of "unsuitable" candidates.
[18:00] <Nowknownas> gfngr: what is your first language?
[18:00] <Scetoaux> Require E-Mail?
[18:00] <Scarian> Nowknownas: English. :|
[18:00] <Soxred93> Why should I not majorly accept?
[18:01] <gfngr> English is my 1st
[18:01] <WBOSITG> Malinaccier, good :)
[18:01] <Malinaccier> They should require a name and address
[18:01] <Scarian> gfngr: How old are you?
[18:01] <WBOSITG> Prodego, fair point.
[18:01] <Scetoaux> Malinaccier: I wouldn't go that far.
[18:01] <Malinaccier> so that it scares them into not vandalizing
[18:01] <Majorly> because you Soxred93 would be better to not
[18:01] <gfngr> i just am typing wit 1 hand cause i broke the other
[18:01] <Scetoaux> I've only revealed my first name, and my address is not localized to anything more than the county I live in
[18:01] <Scarian> Some guy said credit cards at [[WP:VILLAGE]]
[18:01] <Nowknownas> gfngr: Please can you speak it correctly please, :b
[18:01] <Malinaccier> Scetoaux: we wouldn't keep the address, just amke them type it in
[18:01] <gfngr> k
[18:01] <WBOSITG> gfngr, broke it, sure.
[18:01] <Soxred93> I already participate in a lot of admin areas
[18:01] <WBOSITG> :P
[18:01] <Scetoaux> ah
[18:01] <Scarian> Exhausted it more like.
[18:01] <gfngr> im >16
[18:01] <Scetoaux> so I could type 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
[18:02] <Nowknownas> Congratulations
[18:02] <Malinaccier> Soxred93: at least wait for July
[18:02] <Soxred93> WP:ACC, WP:OP, WP:AIV, WP:UAA, WP:NPP, etc.
[18:02] * Scetoaux degausses his monitor.
[18:02] <Malinaccier> Scetoaux: I think it would slightly deter things
[18:02] <WBOSITG> gfngr, I'm < 15
[18:02] <Majorly> Soxred93, what about wikipedia?
[18:02] <WBOSITG> no, Worng.
[18:02] <Majorly> WBOSITG, O_o
[18:02] <gfngr> lol you 14?
[18:02] <WBOSITG> I'm < 16
[18:02] <Scetoaux> Yeah, but it'd be less work for us anti-vandal fighters, eh?
[18:02] <Scarian> Soxred93: Don't jump into it straight away.
[18:02] <Soxred93> Majorly, ???
[18:02] <WBOSITG> even
[18:02] <Nowknownas> And I am 17, lets have a party

[18:02] * east718|away runs everyone off his damn lawn
[18:02] <Scarian> gfngr: Yes, they are an admin.

[18:02] <Scetoaux> lol
[18:02] * Scarian isn't sure on sex.
[18:03] * Scetoaux is 17
[18:03] <gfngr> omg
[18:03] <WBOSITG> Majorly, o.O
[18:03] <WBOSITG> gfngr, I am.
[18:03] <Malinaccier> gfngr: there are no age limits to adminship, but people will oppose based on age if it is made known
[18:03] <gfngr> that is cool
[18:03] <Scetoaux> yeah
[18:03] <Majorly> oh they will take the opportunity
[18:03] <Majorly> anything to oppose
[18:03] <WBOSITG> Malinaccier, Yeah, I got an age oppose.
[18:03] <CWii> so I'm pretty screwed :P
[18:03] <Scarian> Like Friday.
[18:03] <Majorly> age is perfect
[18:03] <Scetoaux> I had made it known, but I removed it from my user page
[18:03] * Rdsmith4 (n=Rdsmith4@wikipedia/Rdsmith4) Quit ("." )
[18:03] <Scetoaux> Of course, it's still available in the page history
[18:03] <WBOSITG> From Tiptoety
[18:03] <Scarian> Scetoaux: get it deleted.
[18:03] * Majorly seems to remember Scetoaux negatively...
[18:03] <Malinaccier> WBOSITG: I didn't :p
[18:03] <gfngr> cool dont tell any one im gona be an admin by sept 29
[18:04] <WBOSITG> Scetoaux, I'll delete it if you like
[18:04] <Soxred93> Great
[18:04] <Scetoaux> No need.
[18:04] <Malinaccier> Majorly: why?
[18:04] <Soxred93> So I will fail
[18:04] <Monobi> Any bot ideas
[18:04] <Soxred93> Because everyone knows my agi
[18:04] <Nowknownas> I doubt this highly,
[18:04] <Soxred93> Monobi, all I have are kept to myself
[18:04] <Scarian> Soxred93: you'd get like 2 opposes tops
[18:04] <CWii> I'm 14!
[18:04] <Scetoaux> Yeah
[18:04] <CWii> there.
[18:04] <Scarian> Soxred93: (for age)
[18:04] <Majorly> Soxred93, 93 is plenty old enough
[18:04] <Scetoaux> Age is not really going to b e much of a factor
[18:04] <CWii> Screw me over now.
[18:04] <WBOSITG> CWii, happy birthday for ages ago
[18:04] <CWii> :)
[18:04] <Scetoaux> I'm just not going to advertise it until AFTER I become an admin
[18:04] <Majorly> lol
[18:04] <WBOSITG> lol
[18:04] <WBOSITG> if and when
[18:05] <CWii> Scarian, good plan
[18:05] <Soxred93> I think everyone can calculate based on the year, that I am 15
[18:05] * Ashfire908 (i=432f7742@wikipedia/Andrew-Hampe) has joined #Wikipedia-EN
[18:05] <Scetoaux> Majorly: Does your negative recollection of me have anything to do with an RFC?
[18:05] <Scarian> CWii: I have no plan.
[18:05] <Majorly> I told Anonymous Dissident to remove his age from his userpage just before his rfa. he got 144/1/0 iirc
[18:05] <CWii> Scetoaux, good plan
[18:05] <WBOSITG> Soxred93, and younger than me, woo
[18:05] <Nowknownas> IS THERE NOONE OVER THE AGE OF 20 HERE???

[18:06] <Malinaccier> Scarian: have you written anything good?

[18:07] <NotASpy> Sceptre: run. that's all the help you need.
[18:07] <NotASpy> :p
[18:07] <WBOSITG> Scarian, I agree.
[18:07] <Sceptre> Majorly: how the hell can a train operator get "Oxfrod Road" from "Picadilly"?
[18:07] <CWii> what?
[18:07] <Soxred93> I still laugh at this category name: Fair use articles needing expert attention
[18:07] <Majorly> I don't know what you mean
[18:07] <Nowknownas> Oxfrod road?
[18:07] <NotASpy> Sceptre: what's happened ?
[18:07] <WBOSITG> Sceptre, if he was from Scotland?
[18:08] <Sceptre> NotASpy: I'm going to a gig next month
[18:08] <Majorly> Soxred93, have you written any articles?
[18:08] <Scetoaux> hmm
[18:08] <WBOSITG> or operating in Mongolia.
[18:08] <Soxred93> Yes
[18:08] <Sceptre> it's in Manchester
[18:08] <Scetoaux> I know I've seen you before, Majorly
[18:08] <CWii> Soxred93, nope. not a flicker on the laugh-o-meter
[18:08] <NotASpy> Sceptre: so you've booked the wrong ticket, right.
[18:08] <Soxred93> Fair Use Articles?
[18:08] * Nowknownas loved  the tube party on the 1st!
[18:08] <CWii> Soxred93, oh. haha?
[18:08] <Sceptre> NotASpy: the only other locations are Birmingham and London
[18:08] <Scarian> Nowknownas: You're too young to drink.
[18:08] <Majorly> NotASpy, they are different stations
[18:08] <Sceptre> Manchester may be bad, but at least they're not softies
[18:09] <Majorly> manchester is not bad
[18:09] <Scarian> Oh come on.
[18:09] <Scetoaux> trying to find out where and why you remember me negatively "[18:04] * Majorly seems to remember Scetoaux negatively... "
[18:09] <Sceptre> Majorly: compared to Yorkshire, the rest of the UK is pretty much shit :p
[18:09] <Nowknownas> Scarian, yes, your point is?
[18:09] <Nowknownas> lol
[18:09] <NotASpy> Majorly: yeah, been to/through both over the years.
[18:09] * Scarian looks at Nowknownas' undeveloped liver.
[18:09] <Scarian> Ja.
[18:09] <Sceptre> the point is, how the hell can National Rail get "Manchester Oxford Road" from "Manchester Picadilly" (one c)?
[18:09] <Majorly> two cs

[18:10] <Sceptre> Majorly: I know
[18:10] <Scetoaux> ah well
[18:10] <Majorly> Sceptre, you made a mistake, obviously
[18:10] <Scetoaux> I'm not going to worry about it
[18:10] <NotASpy> Sceptre: they usually sell tickets to Manchester (all terminals)
[18:10] <Sceptre> how the hell did it get Oxford Road, then?
[18:10] <Majorly> Scetoaux, have you ever opposed an rfa?
[18:10] <Majorly> Sceptre, it?
[18:10] <Majorly> you mean "you"
[18:10] <Sceptre> no, the journey planner
[18:10] <Scetoaux> Majorly: Yes
[18:10] <Majorly> NotASpy, no, I got Manchester Piccadilly
[18:10] <Sceptre> I understand the two will be like, half a mile apart at most
[18:10] <Scarian> Well walk it?
[18:11] <NotASpy> Sceptre: they divert trains from Picc to Ox Rd during engineering work into Picc
[18:11] <Majorly> Scetoaux, it was probably an oppose of yours that annoyed me :) Don't take it personally
[18:11] <CWii> oh guess what people!
[18:11] <Majorly> they aren't far
[18:11] <NotASpy> there's a train from Picc to Ox Rd
[18:11] <Sceptre> jeez, guys, I'm having a go at crappy search engines ;)
[18:11] <NotASpy> Platform 16, I think.
[18:11] <Majorly> er
[18:11] <Scetoaux> lol
[18:11] <Majorly> they don't go that high
[18:11] <CWii> I found out today that the High Schooler next door to me is a drug addcit :/
[18:11] <Scetoaux> I don't oppose much any more
[18:11] <Majorly> 14 is highest
[18:11] <Scetoaux> I completely changed my outlook towards RFA
[18:12] <Majorly> CWii, my brother is a druggie, beat that
[18:12] <Sceptre> NotASpy: on the line I'm going (M'boro-York-Leeds-Huddersfield-Picc-Airport), Piccadilly is the second-to-last stop
[18:12] <Malinaccier> Scetoaux: after you get opposed on your own RFA it all changes
[18:12] <CWii> Majorly, is he
[18:12] <Scetoaux> yeah
[18:12] * skenmy (n=skenmy@freenode/staff/wikimedia.skenmy) Quit ("Quantum materiae materietur marmota monax si marmota monax materiam possit materiari?" )
[18:12] <Scetoaux> like on my userpage: "I participate in a lot of RFAs. I have recently decided that my only criterion that people need to meet for adminship is confidence that a user would not abuse the tools or misuse them, whether by accident or intent. I will not oppose a user on the basis of self-nomination, or the "no need for the tools" argument. I do expect that a user has experience in administrator related areas (AIV, RFPP, XfD, etc.)
[18:12] <Scetoaux> Sorry,
[18:12] * CWii hugs Majorly
[18:12] <NotASpy> it'll be 13 or 14 then, it's the two platforms that are separate to the rest of the station.
[18:12] <Scetoaux> tl;dr: I default to support unless there is reason to oppose.
[18:12] <Majorly> NotASpy, yeaha
[18:13] <Majorly> I was on 13 last night
[18:13] <Malinaccier> I feel like crap about an RFA I got snowed
[18:13] <Scarian> Is it possible to go *outside* of T5?
[18:13] <Scetoaux> eh?
[18:14] <Scetoaux> I'm only showing one RFA for you, and yours was unopposed
[18:14] <NotASpy> anyway, it's a two minute trip on the train, Sceptre, and if your ticket isn't valid, it'll cost you £2 or something.
[18:14] * Scarian sighs and retreats into his corner as no one listened to him.
[18:14] <Malinaccier> Scetoaux: an RFA that I made a good point on which got it snowed
[18:14] * Tinkleheimer is very sad cause he found out his favorite artist's pet died :(.
[18:14] <Prodego> I only !vote on rfas for people I have had some sort of contact with
[18:14] <Sceptre> NotASpy: TPXE are overestimating then
[18:14] <Scetoaux> oh
[18:15] <Majorly> anyone who uses the word !vote shouldn't be voting
[18:15] <Scetoaux> yeah, well
[18:15] <Scetoaux> that's RFA
[18:15] <Scetoaux> Majorly: I don't know what else to call it
[18:15] <Prodego> Majorly: you just said !vote
[18:15] <Scetoaux> lol, maybe that's what annoyed you
[18:15] <gfngr> Prodego vote for me in the future please
[18:15] <Majorly> Scetoaux, what's wrong with "vote"
[18:15] <Majorly> because that's what it is
[18:15] <Scarian> Malinaccier: Snow Ironholds?
[18:15] * Chetblong is now known as HoneyTruck
[18:16] <Prodego> yes, but can't we at least pretend it isn't?
[18:16] <Malinaccier> Scarian: no, it was someone whose RFA was going almost perfect
[18:16] <Scetoaux> Majorly: I don't see people using "vote", and I merely thought "!vote" was a formality

[18:18] <Scetoaux> I always percieved this to be a trust issue
[18:18] <Tinkleheimer> Has anyone heard of the artist [[Angus Oblong]]? :(

[18:18] <Scetoaux> First of all, it reduces it to a pure vote
[18:18] <WBOSITG> Bye all
[18:18] <Scarian> Scetoaux: They need to show that they know what a consensus is.

[18:19] <Scetoaux> If consensus is a percentage
[18:19] * ChanServ sets mode: +o NotASpy
[18:19] <Majorly> Scetoaux, because rfa is stupid

[18:19] <Scetoaux> I have no answer to that.
[18:19] <Scarian> Scetoaux: A consensus is when there is a strong argument *for* or *against* something.
[18:19] <Monobi> NotASpy, ?

[18:19] <NotASpy> Monobi: just testing my scripty thing.
[18:19] * rory096 stabs cablevision
[18:19] <Scetoaux> It's jsut that strong argument can fall short in percentage

[18:20] <Monobi> NotASpy, oh, is it ?
[18:20] <Majorly> Monobi, of course you are
[18:20] <Monobi> Majorly, I am also full of whiskey and beer
[18:20] <Scetoaux> 89% shouldn't fail a candidate without consideration of the oppose votes
[18:20] <Monobi> :-D
[18:20] <Malinaccier> Scarian: it was a while ago
[18:20] <Scarian> Malinaccier: Whilst I was waiting in your lobby I correct some capitalisation on your userpage.
[18:20] <Majorly> Monobi, srsly?
[18:20] <Monobi> No
[18:20] <Scetoaux> if the oppose votes are weak, 89% should pass a candidate
[18:20] <Monobi> :-D
[18:20] <NotASpy> Monobi: I think so, let me check
[18:20] <Monobi> Ok
[18:20] <Scetoaux> if the oppose votes are strong, 89% is taken to be less of a consensus
[18:20] <rory096> what?

[18:25] <Majorly> 100 isn't a limit
[18:25] <Scetoaux> Scarian: Consensus was to remove it completely
[18:25] <Scarian> Hmm... People have no future sight.
[18:25] <Luna-San> 100 is a limit no person would ever hit; does prevent a painful botnet deal, though
[18:25] <Malinaccier> Scarian: well I can't find it
[18:25] <MZMcBride> The rollback throttle is 10 / min.
[18:25] <MZMcBride> Check the API.
[18:26] <Scarian> Woo!

[18:46] <Macy> hi Mm40
[18:46] <Scetoaux> yeah
[18:46] <Luna-San> Huh. Seems blocking an already-blocked user no longer causes an "edit conflict" (for lack of a better term)
[18:46] <Scetoaux> but there can be no legitimate fair use exemption

[18:47] <Macy> *retrieved from Sharkface217's questions
[18:47] <Howcheng> I think so ...
[18:47] <Tinkleheimer> I don't think that age should make a difference in RFA

[18:47] * midye (n=slayer@ Quit ("el filan salliyorum.." )

[18:48] <Macy> O_O

[18:48] <Mm40> I know, I'm breaking freenode rules
[18:48] <Scetoaux> I agree with rory096
[18:48] <MBisanz> we have 12 year old admins currently
[18:48] <MBisanz> and we have banned forty year old users
[18:48] <Pericallis> agree
[18:48] <Scetoaux> Mm40: You are?  I haven't read them.
[18:48] <Macy> I agree with rory096 too
[18:48] <Howcheng> true, MBisanz
[18:49] <Macy> Pericallis: Mafores
[18:49] <Avruch> In the absence of demonstrated maturity (i.e. track record not sufficient to go either way) age is important.
[18:49] <Mm40> And anyway, 12-year-olds often are more mature then 40-year-olds =p
[18:49] <Howcheng> but a person of young age is more likely to show immaturity
[18:49] <Avruch> But why does it always come up, I wonder?
[18:49] <Macy> Mafores is 13, and is a sysop on en:wiki
[18:49] <Majorly> who?
[18:49] <Macy> *he is
[18:49] <Pericallis> is he 13? :O
[18:49] <Avruch> I think its because kids always think they are more mature than they are.
[18:49] <Macy> *es:wiki
[18:49] <Malinaccier> Howcheng: but if they don't show it, why look for it needlessly
[18:49] <Howcheng> and Anonymous Dissident is also 13 and a sysop

[18:49] <Tinkleheimer> Isn't Annonymous Dissident really young also?
[18:49] <Majorly> yes
[18:49] <Majorly> he's 13
[18:50] <Mm40> And I'll probably become admin under 15 (I hope)...
[18:50] <Tinkleheimer> Okay, I meant to type that earlier, but I was on the phone
[18:50] <rory096> ilyanep got cratship when he was like 13

[18:50] <Macy> Mm40: what's your username?
[18:50] <Mm40> You just said it
[18:50] <Scetoaux> lol
[18:50] <Scetoaux> yeah
[18:50] <Macy> rory096: he was 14, I think
[18:50] <Howcheng> the whole Giggy fiasco should serve as a warning
[18:50] <Malinaccier> lol
[18:50] <rory096> whatever
[18:50] <Scetoaux> I went on Wiki and typed User:Mm40 into the search bar
[18:50] <Scetoaux> Bam.
[18:50] <Scetoaux> I'm there. :p
[18:50] <Howcheng> immaturity can be found in any age, but it's more /likely/ to be found in younger users
[18:50] * AzaTht (n=azatoth@wikipedia/AzaToth) Quit ("Lämnar" )
[18:51] <Majorly> he wasa 13
[18:51] <Majorly> also it was 2004
[18:51] <rory096> Howcheng: not really. that's just one data point
[18:51] * Mm40_ ( has joined #wikipedia-en
[18:51] Clones detected from 8 Mm40 Mm40_
[18:51] <Majorly> people did not give a damn about age
[18:51] * Mm40 ( Quit (Nick collision from services. )
[18:51] <Pericallis> and also this is internet, everyone can lie its age
[18:51] <MBisanz> wasnt Sam Korn made an arb, cu, and oversight under 17?
[18:51] <Scetoaux> We've had good admins, great admins, bad admins, and atrocious admins
[18:52] <Malinaccier> So who cares about age?  If someone's immature then go oppose them; if they're not, it doesn't matter
[18:52] * Mm40_ is now known as Mm40
[18:52] <Scetoaux> How old was Archtransit?
[18:52] <Majorly> MBisanz, yeah
[18:52] <Mm40> What Giggy fiasco?
[18:52] * Texou (n=Tex@unaffiliated/texou) Quit ("++" )
[18:52] <Majorly> or maybe 16
[18:52] <Avruch> Scetoaux: No one really knows, do they? He was a sockmaster
[18:52] <Scetoaux> I wasn't around then, actually
[18:52] <smoddy> MBisanz: I was certainly arbitrator at 16, can't remember exactly for CU and OS
[18:52] <Malinaccier> lol
[18:52] <MBisanz> majorly do you think RfD standards are too high?
[18:52] <Scetoaux> So I really have no right to comment on that issue
[18:52] <Macy> Howcheng: would you make null a vote from someone opposing because of his age?
[18:52] <Howcheng> Malinaccier: the whole conversation is moot for me anyway since I don't really even look at RFAs anymore :)

[18:52] <Malinaccier> Howcheng: :)
[18:52] <Avruch> Malinaccier: If you don't see enough in the contrib history to determine maturity either way, age is a good second measure
[18:53] <Pericallis> hi kibble

[18:53] <Malinaccier> Avruch: hmm
[18:53] <smoddy> MBisanz: that depends if I forget to take my medication
[18:53] <Macy> Pericallis: stop greeting everyone, remember that there's no bot here
[18:53] * MBisanz hides Sam's medication
[18:53] <rory096> rfd standards?
[18:53] <Malinaccier> Avruch: or you could look at their talk pages
[18:53] <rory096> redirects for deletion?
[18:53] <NotASpy> I've got a theory - any user, if they're told they're too young to be an admin, who then makes a great big song and dance about ageist votes is indeed too young to be an admin.
[18:53] <MBisanz> i corrected rory
[18:53] <MBisanz> to RfB
[18:53] <rory096> oh wait, yeah
[18:53] <rory096> dammit
[18:53] <Majorly> smoddy, feb 2006 for checkuser
[18:53] <Howcheng> Macy: I don't even look at RFAs these days except to see the dramaz
[18:54] <smoddy> Majorly: date?
[18:54] <Avruch> Malinaccier: Which is not always clear, as to maturity. Plus, with people who are younger, its far more likely that immaturity will be a problem.
[18:54] <Majorly> may 2006 for oversight
[18:54] <Majorly> 6th Feb
[18:54] <smoddy> then I was 16
[18:54] <Majorly> lol
[18:54] <Pericallis> Macy: why should I not greet everyone?
[18:54] <Howcheng> NotASpy: agreed
[18:54] <Macy> Pericallis: you look like orejotas xD
[18:54] <rory096> NotASpy: not really. if you said someone couldnt be an admin because they're black, you'd think that if they said that racist votes are bullshit, they shouldn't be an admin?

[18:55] <Pericallis> hi Cestmoi
[18:55] * Luna-San applauds rory096 for seemingly sensible straw man
[18:55] <Scetoaux> It's not like a person has any control over their age.
[18:55] <Macy> Pericallis: Cestmoi is here, party time on #wikipedia-es !!!
[18:55] <Scetoaux> It's even in the arguments to avoid in adminship discussions page
[18:55] <Avruch> Scetoaux: No, they don't have control of their age, and no one is *blaming* them for being young
[18:56] <Malinaccier> I don't think a 13 year old whose RFA is snowed should have to edit for 5 years before the community gives them the mop
[18:56] * CardinalNumber ( has joined #wikipedia-en
[18:56] <smoddy> I don't blame anyone who voted against me in the arbcom elections of '06 on the grounds of age -- the fact that I disagreed with them did not make their vote invalid
[18:56] <Pericallis> hi CardinalNumber
[18:56] <Cestmoi> Macy: ??????
[18:56] <Avruch> Scetoaux: But there are many instances where young people are rightfully excluded anyway, even if being young isn't their fault
[18:56] <Macy> Cestmoi: :?
[18:56] <rory096> Avruch: and yet they're counting it against them for no reason other than their being young
[18:56] <MBisanz> smoddy under the new rules you must be 18 to run
[18:56] <MBisanz> privacy policy and all
[18:56] <smoddy> MBisanz: for arbcom?
[18:56] <MBisanz> yes
[18:56] <MBisanz> they DQ'd a number of people in the 07' elections
[18:56] <Scetoaux> Avruch: Their immaturity is their fault, not their age.
[18:56] <smoddy> I knew that for CU and OS
[18:56] <Macy> Pericallis: User:SoxBot V got blocked because of updating people's status
[18:56] <MBisanz> also you must verify identity to the foundaiton to run
[18:56] <Avruch> rory096: The fact that it isn't their fault doesn't translate directly to them being held harmless from it
[18:56] <MBisanz> after essjay
[18:56] <smoddy> kinda sensible, actually
[18:57] * Juliancolton (i=4579f4ad@gateway/web/ajax/ Quit (" ajax IRC Client" )
[18:57] <Avruch> Scetoaux: Neither one is their fault, its just the way most kids are.
[18:57] <TenPoundHammer> gah
[18:57] <MBisanz> theory is that even if they dont take CU, they still see stuff on the arb mailing list
[18:57] <smoddy> exactly so
[18:57] <Scetoaux> So oppose them if they're mature, and don't if they aren't.
[18:57] <Pericallis> Macy: so?
[18:57] * DerHexer (n=DerHexer@wikipedia/DerHexer) Quit ("ChatZilla [Firefox 3.0b4/2008030714]" )
[18:57] <rory096> Avruch: not only is it not their fault, it's irrelevant. the only reason why age would make someone a bad admin would be because of secondary consequences, so it's those that should be examined, not the age itself
[18:57] <Macy> Pericallis:
[18:57] <smoddy> though I wasn't chucked off the mailing list despite having not identified myself
[18:57] <smoddy> so a slight inconsistency there
[18:57] <Avruch> Scetoaux and rory096: The point I made was that if you can't conclusively see that they are mature beyond their years, then you can't assume that either.
[18:58] <Howcheng> Scetoaux: in other words, younger users need to make an extra effort to show their maturity
[18:58] * Pericallis (n=Pericall@ has left #wikipedia-en
[18:58] <Avruch> It makes no sense to assume that someone is unusually mature just because they put up an RfA
[18:58] * CWii ( Quit (Connection timed out )
[18:58] <Scetoaux> I never said that
[18:58] <Scetoaux> But generally assumptions of good faith do apply
[18:58] <Majorly> ABF
[18:58] <Avruch> Good faith is really irrelevant to judgment
[18:58] <Avruch> People can make good faith serious errors related to maturity and experience
[18:58] * Cream is trying to get a SVG to work

[18:59] <Cream> what is the better way to upload a SVG
[18:59] <Macy> rory096: :O
[18:59] <Cream> directly to Commons?
[18:59] <rory096> Avruch: they should be measured by the same standards as anyone else; if others can be caught for being immature, then there's no reason young people can't
[18:59] <Avruch> Realizing that people who are young are more likely than those who are not to make errors related to maturity and experience has nothing to do with assuming faith of any sort
[18:59] * Juliancolton (i=4579f4ad@gateway/web/ajax/ has joined #wikipedia-en
[18:59] <Scetoaux> You know
[18:59] <Avruch> All assume good faith means is assume that people are contributing with the right interests at heart, not assume they won't make mistakes.
[18:59] <Scetoaux> I can't make this argument
[19:00] <Scetoaux> Because then I would be a hypocrite
[19:00] <Howcheng> Cream: all free media should go to Commons
[19:00] <MBisanz> omg smoddy i'm looking at the checkuser stats
[19:00] <MBisanz> thatcher and alison must spend 100s of hours a week at it
[19:00] <smoddy> MBisanz: they're frighteningly dull
[19:00] <Avruch> lol
[19:00] <smoddy> MBisanz: that's physically impossible
[19:00] <MBisanz>
[19:00] <Scetoaux> Because age is the argument I use against a certain person that's generated a whole lot of media attention here in the states
[19:01] <Avruch> Age and experience are valid arguments, period. They aren't the end all be all, but they can rightfully contribute to a fuller picture.
[19:01] <MBisanz> smoddy i dont know, i think thatcher must be inventing time to run 2000 CUs in a month
[19:01] <Scetoaux> I'm not denying that
[19:01] <Cream> lol
[19:01] <Cream> there's a wikiwendesay in chicago?
[19:01] <Scetoaux> But it shouldn't be "oh, he's just too young)
[19:01] <smoddy> MBisanz: I've run 50 in the last hour
[19:01] <smoddy> not impossible
[19:02] <smoddy> just unlikely ;-)
[19:02] <Howcheng> Scetoaux: true, i don't think i've ever opposed anyone based solely on age
[19:02] * Soxred93 (n=Soxred93@unaffiliated/soxred93) has joined #wikipedia-en
[19:02] <Scetoaux> It should be "Oh, I see that he's young, and apparently he's immature as well"
[19:02] <Avruch> Scetoaux: No, generally not. Unless someone has a more considered opinion, but just doesn't express the rest of it.
[19:02] <Scetoaux> OK
[19:03] <Avruch> But, people pick all kinds of strange reasons to oppose. Like a userbox ;p
[19:03] <Malinaccier> lol
[19:04] <Avruch> I was a little worried on that guy with the swastika userbox, but a link to religion from "imaginary friends" doesn't strike me as disqualifying
[19:04] * Rjd0060 is now known as Rjd|away
[19:04] <Avruch> Although even the swastika userbox guy had it for "Grammar Nazi Cabal" or something
[19:04] <Scetoaux> I really didn't think that was particularly fair
[19:04] <Scetoaux> I had a whole bunch of userboxes
[19:04] <Scetoaux> I think I had like 90 of them
[19:05] <Cream> Where?
[19:05] <Cream> On my past account
[19:05] <Scetoaux> a subpage
[19:05] <Cream> i had a userbox called "This user thinks you're a douchebag"
[19:05] <Scetoaux> I finally requested speedy deletion per user request to delete subpages in their own userspace
[19:06] <Avruch> that helps, although you still need to wait awhile if you do it to help an RfA
[19:06] <Avruch> otherwise the admins watching RfA will point it out anyway
[19:06] <Majorly> smoddy, if users don't do anything *but* do checks, it's not impossible. Have a look at Thatcher's edits
[19:06] <Scetoaux> nah, I just decided it was too much
[19:06] <Malinaccier> Doesn anyone remember the failed RFA over teh Grammar Nazi UBX?
[19:06] <Scetoaux> but the link was
[19:06] <Avruch> Malinaccier: Just mentioned it, about 15 lines above ;p
[19:06] <Scetoaux> Of course admins can still see it.
[19:06] <Malinaccier> Avruch: lol
[19:06] <smoddy> Majorly: doing more than 168 hours' work in a week is fairly impossible, even for Thatcher

[19:07] <Avruch> even if you never left your screen except to knock off for a nap, 168 is hard to beat ;p
[19:07] <Malinaccier> I passed my RFA with a ton of UBXs
[19:08] <MBisanz> thatcher must have 2 machines running

[19:09] <Scetoaux> Malinaccier, do you see any userboxes on my page that might incite controversy?
[19:09] <Scetoaux> I don't think I had any
[19:09] <Majorly> it would be ironic if a checkuser was found abusing sockpuppets
[19:09] <Howcheng> someone's RFA failed because of a "Grammar Nazi" ubx? that's lame

[19:28] <NotASpy> Sceptre: at the risk of being morbid and terroristy, what's the betting on Obama being assassinated before the General Election ?
[19:28] <Monobi> NotASpy, nah, not until he is elected
[19:28] <Sceptre> NotASpy: there's no betting on it
[19:28] <Sceptre> bookmakers don't take bets on people dying; it's in bad taste
[19:28] <Scetoaux> I really don't wish it to happen
[19:28] <Majorly> Monobi, so it will happen
[19:29] <Majorly> Monobi, will you be doing it?
[19:29] <Monobi> Of course it will happen
[19:29] <Shanel> Monobi is too lazy.
[19:29] <Monobi> And no, I won't be doing it

[19:29] <Scetoaux> Fortunately, the Secret Service seem to know what they're doing
[19:30] * Sceptre sucks at improvisation
[19:30] <Scarian> Shanel: Synonym! Quick!

[19:30] <Avruch> Sceptre: More likely that Hillary will get it because of some Obama scandal
[19:30] <Scarian> People care more about politics than words.

[19:31] <SteveCrossin> OMG Warpath is lame
[19:31] <Warpath> OMG I'am :O
[19:31] <Avruch> Sceptre: Any scandal. Anything significant enough to have him withdraw early in her favor, which is still a serious possibility.

[19:33] <SteveCrossin> hi Malinaccier, sorry for booting you
[19:33] <Monobi> Let's just hope Obama crashes in a car accident
[19:33] <Scetoaux> The only affair that could seriously hurt him would be some sort of affair with Jeremiah Wright
[19:33] <Malinaccier> :O
[19:34] <SteveCrossin> Monobi: :/
[19:34] <Warpath> Monobi, shhh :|
[19:34] <Monobi> And is paralyzed until Nov 4th
[19:34] <Sceptre> it's because of the green frenzy
[19:34] <Shanel> Monobi: Our government is a conservative minority government.
[19:34] <Avruch> Scetoaux: Pfft, if it turns out he slept with a prostitute like Eliot Spitzer or a Senate page or something, he's done ;p
[19:34] <Monobi> And on Nov 5th he stands up and walks home
[19:34] <Warpath> XD

[19:35] <Warpath> religion and politics go side by side :)
[19:35] <Scetoaux> They're not as bad as Bob Barr, who's even further removed from libertarianism
[19:35] <Scetoaux> But it's pretty bad
[19:35] <Avruch> It'd probably go from McCain to, uh, Romney
[19:35] <Monobi> Shanel, the solution to the economy inflations
[19:35] <Avruch> Woohoo Romney...
[19:36] <Monobi> Avruch, lies
[19:36] <Monobi> Oh, I changed my story
[19:36] <Scetoaux> It's highly unlikely
[19:36] <Monobi> McCain, Obama, Romney, and Clinton are in a bus
[19:36] <Scetoaux> That anything is going to happen between now and Nov. 4
[19:36] <Monobi> And they are all paralyzed until Nov 4th
[19:36] <Shanel> Except for it being total poop.
