[14:47] #wikipedia-en url is
[14:49] <FooBarMartijn> well, they have a form of conflict of interest. If that's a bad thing in this case is up for debate I guess
[14:49] <nemo>
[14:49] <FooBarMartijn> and would probably depend on the edits at hand too
[14:49] <nemo> might fall under "summer intern" :-p
[14:50] <nemo> FooBarMartijn: does not fall under IMO at least from (1) and (2)...
[14:50] <nemo> and isn't like we really cared what they wrote. we were mostly asking for aggregating technical info
�03[14:51] * LikeLakers2-1 (~LikeLaker@wikipedia/LikeLakers2) has joined #wikipedia-en
[14:51] <WilliamH_UK> the real reason they were blocked though would have been the username
[14:51] <nemo> probably :)
[14:51] <WilliamH_UK> a group account name editing in the area relating to the name is pretty much grounds for an instant block
[14:52] <nemo> I guessed that after I clicked through and saw the account was blocked
�03[14:52] * Lubaf ( has joined #wikipedia-en
[14:52] <nemo> another org w/ similar task looks like
[14:53] <nemo> and this one has a ton of wikipedia tasks :)
[14:53] <WilliamH_UK> ah I see
[14:54] <FooBarMartijn> something like updating an outdated piece of info (like a current version or something) is never a problem in any case. As it gets more involved, it usually becomes more difficult to remain completely neutral
[14:54] <nemo> oh well. guess I'll start w/ trying to contact them
[14:54] <nemo> if I can't though, what's the next step?
[14:55] <nemo> (contact them to change their account name)
�03[14:55] * MasterofPuppets ( has joined #wikipedia-en
�15[14:55] * MasterofPuppets ( Quit (Changing host�)
�03[14:55] * MasterofPuppets (~MasterofP@Wikipedia/Master-of-Puppets) has joined #wikipedia-en
[14:56] <WilliamH_UK> hi m.o.p
[14:56] <FooBarMartijn> if I read the second link by the way (the aperium stuff), asignments like this are never problematic:
[14:56] <FooBarMartijn> Bulgarian WP has 107,355 articles, Macedonian WP has 42,112, less than half as many. Translate some articles from Bulgarian Wikipedia to Macedonian Wikipedia using Apertium, and then postedit them. Explain to the local Wikipedia community what you are doing beforehand.
[14:56] <FooBarMartijn> er, let's see
[14:56] <nemo> oh
[14:56] <nemo> FooBarMartijn: that one I might have misfound :)
�03[14:56] * Steven_Zhang (~Steven_Zh@Wikipedia/Steven-Zhang) has joined #wikipedia-en
[14:56] <nemo> FooBarMartijn: sympy is closer to what we asked though
[14:57] <nemo> FooBarMartijn: I think we got the idea for the task from the Wesnoth guys - I'd have to ask koda
[14:57] <Steven_Zhang> Ugh, morning..zzzzz
�06[14:57] * Steven_Zhang is still half asleep
[14:57] <Steven_Zhang> more like 3/4 sleep
[14:57] <Steven_Zhang> nemo: are you a clownfish? :D
[14:57] <nemo> perhaps there's even a way to google all GCI tasks in past few years for references to wikipedia
[14:57] <methecooldude> Huge success! ClueBot should be up a day earler then annoucned :D
[14:57] <FooBarMartijn> so, if you have any means to contact him, the namechange is the first thing
[14:57] <FooBarMartijn> if you can't contact him
[14:57] <FooBarMartijn> er
[14:57] <nemo> Steven_Zhang:
[14:57] <Steven_Zhang> lol..this wouldn't have happened if they paid their server fees :P
[14:57] <FooBarMartijn> ideas?
�06[14:58] * Steven_Zhang no speak francais ;)
�06[14:58] * Steven_Zhang wonders why 28bytes was looking at my rfa...
[14:59] <FooBarMartijn> well, let's cross that bridge when we get there :/
[15:00] <nemo> hehe
�03[15:00] * derpyfoo (~no@unaffiliated/d-e-r-p/x-3722634) has joined #wikipedia-en
[15:00] <nemo> alllrighty
[15:00] <methecooldude> Steven_Zhang: I pay for the server :P
[15:00] <derpyfoo> can i waste its resources?
[15:00] <FooBarMartijn> the thing is: if you can't contact him, we can't contact him either
�03[15:00] * aude|eating is now known as aude
[15:01] <nemo> FooBarMartijn: well. I can always ask google for the info I guess :)  they might be uncomfortable w/ that due to student privacy
[15:01] <FooBarMartijn> you could drop a note on his talkpage, which he would get a notification off in case he logs in under that account again
[15:01] <nemo> (like phone number or something)
[15:01] <nemo> FooBarMartijn: oh. I'm pretty sure he has no intent to ever use that account again, or he would have used another name
[15:01] <FooBarMartijn> yeah, that's what I was thinking too
[15:01] <FooBarMartijn> but it was the only other possibility I could think off
[15:02] <WilliamH_UK> he should state that it was his though
[15:02] <WilliamH_UK> he should disclose it
[15:02] <nemo> WilliamH_UK: right. we are more discussing what I can do if I can't find him again
[15:02] <nemo> which I'm going to try to do
[15:03] <Steven_Zhang> methecooldude: or don't pay for the server :P
�03[15:03] * bep\afk is now known as bep
[15:04] <Steven_Zhang> howdy WilliamH_UK

[15:06] <Steven_Zhang> 28bytes
[15:06] <Steven_Zhang> they did a revert and undid it
[15:06] <Steven_Zhang> but they must have been reading it to do so :P
[15:06] <Steven_Zhang> lol
�03[15:06] * Fae (~Fae@wikipedia/Fae) has joined #wikipedia-en
[15:07] <Steven_Zhang> thats what I do :P
[15:07] <WilliamH_UK> they probably hit the rollback button by mistake

[15:07] <Steven_Zhang> oh so have i
[15:07] <Steven_Zhang> but why were they on the page ^_^
[15:08] <WilliamH_UK> you said it

[15:08] <Steven_Zhang> i have a read over it sometimes, when i'm feeling down
[15:08] <Steven_Zhang> (but only the support section :P)
�06[15:09] * Steven_Zhang must work on these articles...
[15:09] <Steven_Zhang> WilliamH_UK: how many pages on your watchlist?
[15:09] <WilliamH_UK> bout 150 odd
[15:10] <pticochon> OMG
[15:11] <Steven_Zhang> only 150?
[15:11] <Steven_Zhang> -__
[15:11] <Steven_Zhang> 150,000?
[15:11] <Steven_Zhang> or literally 150
[15:11] <WilliamH_UK> literally 150
[15:11] <WilliamH_UK> why
[15:11] <Steven_Zhang> You have 2,859 pages on your watchlist (excluding talk pages).
[15:11] <Steven_Zhang> :D
[15:11] <WilliamH_UK> to be honest, you could probabyl lose a ton of them
[15:11] <Steven_Zhang> thats why i see everything :P
[15:12] <Steven_Zhang> probably :P
[15:12] <{Soap}> I used to have about that many but I cut it down drastically
[15:12] <WilliamH_UK> i tend to  manage my watchlist a lot
[15:12] <{Soap}> I still have more than WilliamH though ... 372 currently

[15:14] <Steven_Zhang> your watchlist cannot be 0
[15:14] <Steven_Zhang> :P
[15:14] <Steven_Zhang> yeah you at least must have your userpage on your watchlist
[15:14] <Steven_Zhang> i bloody hate these shitty train seats
[15:14] <Steven_Zhang> they're so butt hurts
[15:15] <{Soap}> well, I think it's technically possible to remove your own userpage
[15:15] <mailer_diablo> well u haven't tried those here
[15:15] <mailer_diablo> it so hot, u'll feel that its on fire
[15:15] <{Soap}> you'll still get the orange bar though

[17:40] <Steven_Zhang> i was asked if i wanted a crat chat, was told it'd probably have to be 70%+
[17:40] <Demiurge1000> Someone named a machine gun after Maxim I think
[17:40] <WilliamH_UK> they did
[17:40] <Steven_Zhang> as it looked likely to go sub-70% i withdrew, saw no point.
[17:40] <Steven_Zhang> etc
[17:40] <Demiurge1000> Quite silly looking, too.
[17:40] <WilliamH_UK> Hiram Maxim
[17:41] <Demiurge1000> Steven_Zhang: Never mind, there's always next year!
[17:41] <Steven_Zhang> yeh

[19:13] <tommorris> damnit, I'm in the UK, I'll send 17 quid if we can get ClueBot back

[19:14] <kim_bruning> methecooldude, specify specs?
[19:14] <kim_bruning> tommorris, I suggest we send 17*12 quid at least ;-)

[19:14] <tashir> people in the WMF office were going to do that yesterday... what happened, I wonder

[19:15] <petan> or maybe yes
[19:15] <tashir> methecooldude: why can't someone just call OVH at 020 7357 6616 and have them charge their card to your account?

[19:18] <tashir> well I'll probably be asleep
[19:18] <methecooldude> Sorry... 8 hours, 40 minutes
[19:18] <tashir> and I don't even know if I have international long distance
[19:19] <kim_bruning> tashir, what's your location?
[19:19] <kim_bruning> if you're in the eurozone I can reimburse you
[19:20] <kim_bruning> shoot, that's actually a good question for the WMUK folks: is it possible to do electronic bank transfers to/from uk from the continent (and do they charge you for it?)
�06[19:20] * kim_bruning hasn't tried recently. 
[19:20] <tashir> someone in UK call their 24/7 number 020 3384 2356 and ask if they can take a credit card payment or if we have to wait until 9am
[19:20] <methecooldude> kim_bruning: My bank (Santander) would charge
[19:20] <tashir> I'm in Colorado
[19:20] <kim_bruning> ah, shoot
[19:21] <methecooldude> tashir: They will, my mate has the same server as me and he did it a couple of nights ago
[19:21] <tashir> methecooldude: is there an account number or ID?
[19:21] <kim_bruning> There goes the plans of cheaply reimbursing anyone
[19:21] <kim_bruning> methecooldude, in fact, how about transferring the entire thing to WMUK, and let them handle the bills?
[19:21] <methecooldude> tashir: Yes, that's why I suggest Skype... I have a Skype subscription
[19:21] <tashir> tommorris: you want to spring for the 17 pounds and sort it out later?
[19:21] <kim_bruning> methecooldude, or transfer your bot to a WM server in general?
[19:21] <tommorris> yep, can do
[19:21] <kim_bruning> I think any of us can :-)
[19:21] <methecooldude> kim_bruning: It's Cobi's bot, not mine (as I keep reminding people)
[19:22] <tashir> methecooldude: what's the account id or number?
[19:22] <tashir> to pay?
[19:22] <kim_bruning> methecooldude, oh sorry?
[19:22] <kim_bruning> ^^;;
�06[19:22] * tommorris was gonna suggest that I just bank transfer some money to methecooldude and he can pay it

[19:22] <tommorris> most bank transfers are pretty much instant these days?
[19:22] <methecooldude> For bank transfers yes
[19:23] <methecooldude> Depends how the back do it
[19:23] <methecooldude> bank*
[19:23] <tashir> because of the ISP, not the transfer, per their payment page
[19:23] <tashir> maybe they wait to make sure it doesn't get fraud-reversed
[19:23] <kim_bruning> tashir, look, if we call them up and say this is for wikipedia, they'll prolly be nice to us. :-)
[19:23] <tommorris> ah okay, then it's too late for me to call people and sort credit card stuff out
[19:23] <methecooldude> Normally if it's the same bank (I.E. Santander to Santander), then it may be instant. Not so must for cross-bank transfers
[19:23] <Olipro> you're underestimating OVH if you think that
[19:24] <kim_bruning> Olipro, OVH sucks?
[19:24] <sonia> if one's bank sucks that much, why not, er, change banks?
[19:24] <kim_bruning> anyone consider moving the account to then?
[19:24] <tashir> well the point is that they take credit cards 24/7 at 020 3384 2356 and there's no transfer fee for that
[19:24] <kim_bruning> tashir, oh, ok, so let's just do that
[19:25] <tashir> kim_bruning: are you in UK?
[19:25] <kim_bruning> well, tom maybe do that, since he's closest, and probably knows how to deal with .uk folks
[19:25] <tashir> he's going to bed

[20:27] <TParis> I think the "A" in that might have something to say about it
[20:27] <sonia> IAR doesn't apply to "blatant stupidity"

[20:28] <barts1a> As an RfA candidate cannot be judged as only helpful to the encylopedia then IAR cannot apply

[20:28] <sonia> if a rule prevents you from improving etc
[20:28] <SigmaWP> Hmph.
[20:28] <sonia> however, causing Sigma grief and annoying the hell out of everyone else
[20:28] <SigmaWP> It's bad to have admins who don't sign their posts

[20:28] <SigmaWP> >_>
[20:28] <sonia> is not improving the 'pedia
[20:29] <kim_bruning> tommorris, state that all "rules" are actually a pattern language
[20:29] <kim_bruning> tommorris, now IAR is no longer contradictory
[20:29] <Fluttershy-EN> guys, would this be seen as recognition of the SNC by the US?
[20:29] <kim_bruning> I'm not even sure if any of the wikipedia Policy/Guideline/essay pages actually mention the word "rule"
[20:29] <tommorris> SigmaWP: also, AfD is more my domain than CSD.
[20:29] <kim_bruning> ... well, they porobably do by now
[20:30] <barts1a> Per IAR rules are mostly guidelines... except for WP:5P which everyone must follow regardless
[20:30] <SigmaWP> hm.
[20:30] <tommorris> kim_bruning: well, famously, there's 3RR, the 3 Revert *Rule*

[20:31] <SigmaWP> {Soap}: Hm, would it help if I created Template:Sigma ?
[20:31] <kim_bruning> 5P uses the word "Rule"
[20:31] <kim_bruning> tommorris, anyway, I'm considering renaming all P/G/E pages patterns
[20:32] <kim_bruning> well, previously considerered
[20:32] <kim_bruning> I wonder if it would still be possible to do today

[20:32] <barts1a> Wikipedia does not have firm rules.
[20:32] <barts1a> Rules in Wikipedia are not carved in stone, and their wording and interpretation are likely to change over time. The principles and spirit of Wikipedia's rules matter more than their literal wording, and sometimes improving Wikipedia requires making an exception to a rule.

[20:32] <kim_bruning> (less wiki-flexibility"
[20:32] <kim_bruning> barts1a, essentially, yeah, it's describing patterns
[20:32] <kim_bruning> (community patterns, etc)
[20:32] <kim_bruning> which makes sense
[20:32] <kim_bruning> wikis were invented for ducomenting patterns

�06[20:33] * tommorris thinks rules are fine.
[20:33] <kim_bruning> it makes sense that running a wiki based on patterns makes sense
[20:33] <barts1a> I love how the piece on IAR on 5P is longer than IAR itself
�06[20:33] * tommorris is, the "twisted masochist" exception aside, a big fan of the Golden Rule
[20:33] <kim_bruning> barts1a, my fault, I kept forward verting it, until it got stuck
[20:33] <thingg> fwiw I think teh wiki has too many people who treat the rules as Serious Business (tm)
[20:33] <foks> ™
[20:33] <sonia> barts1a: I wrote an even longer diatribe on IAR once
[20:33] <kim_bruning> tommorris, Me three, but that's the exception to the rule rule ;-)
[20:34] <tommorris> kim_bruning: the only problem is nobody really gets patterns. Fuck, I'm a programmer and I find patterns a ghastly concept.
[20:34] <sonia> and the lovely la_pianista made it actually make sense
[20:34] <kim_bruning> thingg, and we should ban them all!
[20:34] <thingg> foks: how do you do superscript?
[20:34] <kim_bruning> tommorris, some patterns are fine

[20:35] <thingg> actually it's not too bad

[20:36] <sonia> how do I type a sigma o_O
[20:36] <sonia> like I tried the alt thing, nothign shows up
[20:37] <tommorris> kim_bruning: sure, and a few on Meta. the problem is for something WP's size, the patterns are deeply embedded and engrained.
[20:37] <SigmaWP> sonia: Depends on OS
[20:37] <barts1a> On windows here
[20:37] <tommorris> kim_bruning: so, something like reliable sources doesn't make sense outside of something Wikipedia-sized

[20:51] <kim_bruning> Ohai Fae!

[20:52] <kim_bruning> Fluttershy-EN, 90% ...
[20:52] <kim_bruning> tommorris, ROTFL
[20:53] <kim_bruning> Fluttershy-EN, 100% Complete
[20:53] <kim_bruning> Fluttershy-EN, why don't you have inkscape yourself yet?;-)
[20:53] <Fluttershy-EN> because I am not a very active pony.

[20:54] <tommorris> kim_bruning: nah, I'm tempted to write something along the lines of how when we have people proposing that we need notability guidelines for civil aircraft disasters, we've gone askew somewhere, but I can't quite put my finger on what.
[20:54] <tashir> SigmaWP: the one paragraph Britannica article on coal balls comes up top in and Wikipedia is 5th, or 6th if you count the images
[20:54] <kim_bruning> tommorris, An experienced old wikimedian by the name of TAW thinks ha ha only seriously that WP:N is a conspiracy to drive more users to Wikia ;-)
[20:54] <SigmaWP> Good fucking coal balls
[20:54] <tommorris> kim_bruning: yeah, that's fairly widely held.
[20:55] <kim_bruning> there's more people who think that?
[20:55] <kim_bruning> <ut oh>
[20:55] <tommorris> kim_bruning: I've seen it bandied around a bit.
[20:55] <TParis> Does anyone here know how the brain and moods work and how hormones affect them?  Specifically, behavioral conditioning?
[20:55] <sonia> um
[20:55] <sonia> that's a bit broad to be askign on IRC
[20:55] <kim_bruning> TParis, um, I'm rusty
[20:55] <tommorris> kim_bruning: one thing I wouldn't mind salvaging from Citizendium was bibliography subpages.
[20:56] <SigmaWP> TParis: Hormone + brain = kablooie.
[20:56] <SigmaWP> TParis: Please read the medical disclaimer.
[20:56] <kim_bruning> SigmaWP, not true
[20:56] <tashir> WP:NOTHOWTO subsidizes WikiHow, eHow, and about three or four other sites
[20:56] <TParis> Meh, well I'm tickling the idea for the storyline of a book and I need some things clarified.
[20:56] <TParis> SigmaWP: Not looking for medical advice.
[20:56] <kim_bruning> TParis, maybe ##EarthRelay, but they're not very busy
[20:56] <TParis> What's EarthRelay?
[20:56] <kim_bruning> TParis, #fanfics on could probably help you a lot
[20:56] <tommorris> tashir: but surely, if you want to write a HOWTO, there is Wikiversity. ;-)
[20:56] <kim_bruning> even for non-fanfic topics
[20:56] <Tannerbaum> any Arduino junkies in here?
[20:57] <kim_bruning> Tannerbaum, not yet ;-)
[20:57] <TParis> It's not a fanfic, it's original and I wanted to talk to someone in private, not openly on a forum.
[20:57] <thingg> tommorris: "I'm tempted to write something along the lines of how when we have people proposing that we need notability guidelines for civil aircraft disasters, we've gone askew somewhere, but I can't quite put my finger on what."
[20:57] <thingg> ^^totally agree
[20:57] <tashir> yeah, who has ever seen anything on wikiversity ever come up on the first page of a Google search?
[20:57] <kim_bruning> Tannerbaum, I keep meaning to, but I'm out of round tuits
[20:57] <LtNOWIS> Wikia's got a lot of issues and stuff.
[20:57] <kim_bruning> TParis, what made you think that this would be the place to ask? ;-)
[20:57] <LtNOWIS> and I say that as an admin over there
