User talk:Kalsion

Violation of GWW:USER after being warned already. — Eloc 01:43, 11 November 2007 (UTC)

if he doesnt want your shitty "welcome", you can't force it on him... — Skuld 01:46, 11 November 2007 (UTC)
I'm not talking about the welcome. I'm talking about him violating GWW:USER after being warned. — Eloc 01:51, 11 November 2007 (UTC)
Why don't you archive it for him then, Eloc. Go to Aiiane's Talk page (Aiiane - talk - contribs) 01:53, 11 November 2007 (UTC)
(Edit conflict) To Skuld, it's the same welcome everyone gives. It's not shitty either, it's very informative and makes things seem a bit less intimidating. And if Kalsion doesn't want it, then archive, don't delete the talk page and violate GWW:USER. And, it's "considered rude to make edits to another person's userspace without that user's permission.". Kalsion was told how to archive, there's nothing holding him/her back. Calor - talk 01:58, 11 November 2007 (UTC)
On a side note, that passage you quoted Calor is slightly out of context, given that the next words after it are the parenthetical "(not including talk pages)". Now, you're correct in that the policy does generally specify that a user should archive their own page. However, since Eloc has not only reverted the page back but also posted here, I'm not sure exactly what he's looking for: a sysop to come yell at the person in question? For removing a form-style welcome from their page? Yes, policy technically disallows it but it seems a rather silly issue to press. Go to Aiiane's Talk page (Aiiane - talk - contribs) 02:03, 11 November 2007 (UTC)
(Edit conflict) I wasn't thinking of any policy, but more of social "unsaid rules" that people preach day in, day out on various user talk pages. And i don't know what he's looking for, maybe just confirmation that what he did was right/wrong? Calor - talk 02:07, 11 November 2007 (UTC)

Cayleen Kyoko (talkcontribslogsblock log)

Sockpuppet of Anele Mea. See the history which shows that the page was started by Anele Mea which gives me good proof that it is a sockpuppet. — Eloc 03:18, 11 November 2007 (UTC)

It could be some guy making a page for his friend, happens all the time. Anyway, who cares? God, fail. — Skuld 03:21, 11 November 2007 (UTC)
Welcome to the Eloc vigilante, Skuld. No friend page edits go unnoticed. -Auron 03:21, 11 November 2007 (UTC)

Are Sock puppets against the rules? I don't see the harm as long as you don't vote twice or anything. I don't think this is a sock account anyway. --- Raptors / RAAAAAAAAAA!

Yes, sockpuppets are against the rules. Also, what would be the need to have another account? — Eloc 03:23, 11 November 2007 (UTC)
The whole conversation seems moot unless there is some kind of vandalism or something going on. Proving sock puppets is difficult enough without looking for them unnecessarily. --LemmingUser Lemming64 sigicon.png 03:24, 11 November 2007 (UTC)
Also having looked at the pages in question it does seem far more likely that it is a friend helping make their userpage. --LemmingUser Lemming64 sigicon.png 03:27, 11 November 2007 (UTC)
Sockpuppets refer to using multiple accounts to give the impression that more than one person is favoring a point. Merely registering multiple accounts is not sockpuppetry, nor do we disallow it (in fact, we encourage it if someone has multiple names they use, or signs posts with something other than what their exact username is). Unless they're using multiple accounts to get involved in the same issue, I don't see the harm here. Go to Aiiane's Talk page (Aiiane - talk - contribs) 04:36, 11 November 2007 (UTC)
What would be the need of another account? I seem to recall you supporting the creation of multiple accounts for signatures... -- ab.er.rant sig 01:35, 16 November 2007 (UTC)

Felikia (talkcontribslogsblock log)

GWW:NPA breach at my talk page (quote: "Still under the assumption that you're the only person who knows what they're talking about in a discussion?"). Now this user is something interesting. The account has been made only to post at my the talk page; but notice this edit, made by the IP 12.210.6.191. User:Felikia later continued that conversation as if she were the one who made the above edit; in other words, as if she were IP 12.210.6.191. And that IP had already been blocked after (surprise!) a NPA attack against me (as seen here). I believe this is the same user who did that attack, using a registered account. Erasculio 21:32, 13 November 2007 (UTC)

Sherlock did digging, I see! Going through the steps you went through, and the IP's POV and Felikia's, I would hazard a guess that Sherlock hit the nail on the head. Calor - talk 21:51, 13 November 2007 (UTC)
Judging from your talk archive, you two obviously have history. And I'm not sure this can be seen as a personal attack. Backsword 21:53, 13 November 2007 (UTC)
The GWO comment interests me. Maybe I'll go looking around. Anyone know her ID on GWO? Calor - talk 21:58, 13 November 2007 (UTC)
She has been banned from GWO, after making multiple accounts in order to PM me insults. Erasculio 22:06, 13 November 2007 (UTC)
oh yeah... I remember this from last time it happened. -elviondale (tahlk) 22:16, 13 November 2007 (UTC)
Erasculio, you have to admit you're not the nicest of users (this is not an attack). Yeah, Felikia hates you, but a ban over that comment seems too much. Wait until she really makes a mistake, I know you can take it.User Ereanor sig.jpgreanor 22:28, 13 November 2007 (UTC)
If this is an on-going thing it should be taken to arbcom, there is clearly an underlying issue here, and is not an open and shut case. --LemmingUser Lemming64 sigicon.png 00:00, 14 November 2007 (UTC)
Lemming's right there. IMO wait on the call to the bullpen (ArbComm) for a day or two, see if everything cools down and there's no more disturbance. Calor - talk 00:02, 14 November 2007 (UTC)
That might happen. But I wouldn't like this to go all the way up to ArbComm. It's bad for Erasculio's image and record, since he has been subject of user-user arbitration before. That wouldn't be fair if he turns out to be the "victim" here.User Ereanor sig.jpgreanor 00:17, 14 November 2007 (UTC)

It isn't really an issue if he is leaving anyway. Also he wasn't really referring to anyone specific so it is not a personal attack, it is just crude language which has been discussed extensively already. --LemmingUser Lemming64 sigicon.png 17:25, 14 November 2007 (UTC)

The anon thinks he fails? Lord of all tyria 21:43, 14 November 2007 (UTC)
Who fails? Raptors or Ryudo? Because, IMO, that was my best laugh of the week, seeing that video. And don't start a whole conversation about the ethics and political correctness of that video, either. If your talking about the seig heil message, then I say that it should be taken off, even though it means (Roughly) "Hail to victory", it's strongly associated with Hitler. But we had this whole conversation with the inverse swastika, didn't we? Calor - talk 21:47, 14 November 2007 (UTC)
However, between that, this and this (after the discussion here), it does feel like at least GWW:NPA was broken there. Probably a bit late now, though. Erasculio 00:29, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
Late or not - something should be done. Because policies or not - Raptors has attacked that user and made them feel uncomfortable on the wiki, repeatedly, after repeated requests to stop. See User:Ryudo. I've seen the owned thing before... the pics are funny, but not to a user who has essentially been bullied and picked on. It is ugly that this can occur here.  :( --Aspectacle 00:47, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
Just a product of weak sysops. Congratulations, Erasculio, you got your wish - a user has actually left the wiki because of a troll, and nothing has been done to stop him. This wiki is working very well. -Auron 01:05, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
It's a fallacy to assume any strong sysops would enact the policies you desire. Nor is this the place to argue it. Backsword 01:34, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
A strong sysop system would have allowed Raptors to be banned. If assuming that is a fallacy, I need to go back to logic 101. -Auron 01:36, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
Less of a "strong sysop", more a "sysop who acts exactly like Auron wants, despite how he has not bothered to call for an ArbComm against an user that bothers him so much". But Backsword is right, there are enough places where to discuss this already. Erasculio 01:41, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
You have no idea what you're talking about, do you? Why shouldn't a user who's actions have made someone leavve the wiki and fourth userbox on his page says he is above the rules be banned? Use common sense, the answer is obvious. — Skakid9090 01:44, 15 November 2007 (UTC)

Request for arbitration

I believe arbitration is warranted regarding the conduct of User:Raptors, primarily regarding harassment of another user and another personal attack. I do not believe that attempting to reason with him or imposing a normal block will be effective enough, given his general attitude (especially regarding previous attempts). --Rezyk 01:37, 15 November 2007 (UTC)

Just ban him, stop being stupid — Skakid9090 01:39, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
I didn't mean to imply that he shouldn't be blocked also; as far as I know, that might just be a matter of us not having enough sysops around atm. --Rezyk 01:53, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
Shouldn't this go here, Rezyk? Backsword 02:07, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
It could, but my impression was that these requests can be made in a more informal manner too. --Rezyk 02:40, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
Perhaps. Aberrant blocked him for a month for the NPA vios, so it doesn't much matter. Can take him to ArbComm if he comes back. Backsword 13:48, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
I can't speak for the other bureaucrats, but I will respond to all arbitration requests that I happen upon and that are clearly meant as arbitration requests. Using Guild Wars Wiki:Arbitration committee/Requests is just an added convenience for the bureaucrats. --Xeeron 14:25, 15 November 2007 (UTC)

Auron (talkcontribslogsblock log)

GWW:NPA. Beginning with his comment ("I'm tired of goddamn stupid logic from people that can't think") about those who don't agree with him on the Adminship discussion. Then on my own talk page ("I'm not going to bother responding to your little troll bait, because it is just too stupid", "it's clear that you have no interest using logic and reason to discuss; stop trolling policy pages and let them be productive"), then back at the Admin discussion ("95% of the wiki is ignorant because, as you are demonstrating, they are ignoring facts and intelligence by bringing up the same example over and over after it's been refuted repeatedly" and "You've conveniently ignored (as trolls are wont to do)"). Lastly above, on Raptor's section ("Skakid; don't bother. Those who are blind can't be made to see"). The lack of arguments (beyond "look at GuildWiki!") coupled with all those attacks are getting tiresome. Erasculio 02:02, 15 November 2007 (UTC)

I'd just like to point out that Auron is an active contributor, but with a rather bad attitude. Raptors broke GWW:NPA far more and far worse, yet he hasn't been banned. So before anyone does anything, consider that.User Ereanor sig.jpgreanor 02:10, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
Raptors has been banned like a couple of times now. — Eloc 02:26, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
But he's not banned now.User Ereanor sig.jpgreanor 02:30, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
We don't have to go "all or nothing" on the punishments. Too much leniency is bad, but if Auron were permanently blocked just because of this section, it would be going against many of the things even I believe in, as mentioned on the ArbComm about Skuld. For someone who's a valued contributor, I think educative action is more important than a purely punitive one; but if said education must come through punishment, so be it. Erasculio 02:33, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
Again, that seems to me to be more an issue of not having enough sysops around. It's not like there is anything else preventing it, unless for some reason the sysops don't consider any of it to be a personal attack. --Rezyk 02:40, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
It's gotta by lack of on-line personal. If they don't consider it a violation they should at least say something here.User Ereanor sig.jpgreanor 02:46, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
He's been warned. If he makes another ad hominem attack, I think he should get blocked for a day or two. -- Gordon Ecker 03:08, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
Auron was right on that talk page, cant say he wasnt. also, if Auron offend u, plx fail less. --Cursed Angel 12:40, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
Something that doesn't seem to occur to most people - it doesn't matter who is right or wrong, you're attacking another user and that is not allowed on the wiki. If you want to tell someone they are wrong, do it in a respectful manner or dont bother. - BeX iawtc 13:26, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
If you think being offended by a certain thing is silly, and you don't have anything polite to respond with, you can help by ignoring it. Saying "fail less" (and this applies to so many people) is not going to accomplish anything except aggravate the situation. -- ab.er.rant sig 14:39, 15 November 2007 (UTC)

Alright, no more userbox. Anyway, I read the whole proposal talk, very stiffy btw. What you guys need is an Admin noticeboard page with a list of subpages links, like:
  • Bot reports: Gibberish, link spam, etc (obvious, easy, quick block)
  • Vandal reports: Intentional vandalism (take a look, think it over, ban)
  • Policy Violations: Users gone wrong (discuss, drama, resolve)
  • Other reports: borderline cases, not clearly covered by policies (drama, discretion required, resolve)
So users get here first, go report to the right place, and admins can work on shorter lists with similar issues. Wich also allows admins to choose to work on what they think they are better at dealing with.User Ereanor sig.jpgreanor 20:24, 20 November 2007 (UTC)
Why split this when the situation canbe handled as is? More pages = more time used to report and more time used to resolve. There's not a huge wave of issues that can't be resolved immediately, quite the contrary. -- Gem (gem / talk) 00:17, 21 November 2007 (UTC)

why dont u block bots forever? i mean, they arent people. --Cursed Angel talk 01:51, 26 November 2007 (UTC)
Because IP numbers aren't permanent. Even a fixed IP can get reassigned if someone moves or changes ISPs. -- Gordon Ecker 02:03, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

So by temp blocking them it just deters them? If it's permanent, then it stays permanent. — Eloc 02:57, 26 November 2007 (UTC)
Because if you block them forever, and someone else is assigned the IP at some point in the future, a perfectly innocent user may not be able to access the wiki because of the actions of others. I mean I could go into a net cafe, spam nonsense here, get the IP blocked forever, then no-one else who uses that multiple user computer would be able to access the wiki. --LemmingUser Lemming64 sigicon.png 03:12, 26 November 2007 (UTC)
But what are the odds that someone would actually be onto one of those blocked IP. — Eloc 03:21, 26 November 2007 (UTC)
Well, given that IPv6 in in development because IPv4 (the current IP addressing system) is running out of numbers, I'd say the chance of that happening is just gonna get bigger and bigger. But even if it's just an extremely small chance, why risk blocking a legitimate user permanently for the sake of a few clicks to revert things? -- ab.er.rant sig 10:00, 26 November 2007 (UTC)
Theoretically, against a fixed IP vandal, every doubling of the block length will cut the reversion and blocking workloads caused by that vandal in half, so the benefits of a 1 year block over a 3 month block are minimal. -- Gordon Ecker 11:23, 26 November 2007 (UTC)
