[18:06] <TParis> Is this article full of shit?  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chowz
[18:06] <TParis> ie: is it a hoax?
[18:07] <ZT> Unless he means the "Quoms" yes it is a hoax
[18:08] <MisterAnderson> TParis: Choudry and Jatt already have articles and I have never heard "Chowz" used as a nickname
[18:08] <TParis> Chowz isnt short for Choudry?
[18:08] <TParis> Would a redirect to Choudry not make sense?
[18:09] <MisterAnderson> TParis: that sounds like a rap name or something
[18:09] <MisterAnderson> TParis: Choudhury or Choudry if you want to make a redirect
[18:10] <kim_bruning> I found choudaryt too
[18:10] <kim_bruning> I just wikified and got blue links all over
[18:10] <juancarlos> thank you kindly

[18:11] <juancarlos> You need real terms to define something made up ;-)
[18:11] <TParis> I redirected it to Jatt
[18:11] <kim_bruning> juancarlos, yes, but at least the dude isn't talking too much nonsense
[18:11] <kim_bruning> why to Jatt?
[18:12] <kim_bruning> that doesn't seem to make sense?
[18:12] <TParis> "The word CHOWZ which is short for choudary and also known as Jatt."
[18:12] <kim_bruning> fair enough
[18:12] <kim_bruning> choudary is an existing term too
[18:12] <TParis> The only article on Choudary appeared to be for an Indian caste
[18:12] <TParis> The Jatt article was about a Pakistan cast
[18:12] <MisterAnderson> you guys should see the battles that go on at template:ethnic groups of punjab
[18:12] <TParis> caste*
[18:12] <kim_bruning> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Choudary
[18:13] <kim_bruning> oddly, no reference to pakistani castes
[18:13] <TParis> I know, but read the Choudary caste article, it says it's in india
[18:13] <TParis> The Jatt one referred to Pakistan
[18:13] <MisterAnderson> TParis: this caste is from the punjab which was split with the partition of india
[18:13] <TParis> So I redirected there

[20:36] <MooCow93> I once heard something about Leonardo da Vinci about him showing up every day for a month or something to sit down on a chair in front of a big block of marble or something, and then finally, the last day, simply start working intensively on it and get finished in no time after thinking out every step in his head for all those days prior to that. Can somebody help me find this anecdote?

[20:57] <Snowolf> MooCow93: Michelangelo used to say how the sculpture was already in the block of stone and his job was just freeing it, so it makes some sense to me, also, Leonardo had weird sleeping habits which involved, iirc, him sleeping every few hours, so I'm just going off probability.

[21:01] <Lubaf> It's untrue, by the way. Lesbians have more fun, haircolor doesn't enter into it.

[21:43] <MasterofPuppets> SigmaWP: Sub-admins wouldn't be able to block sockpuppets, anyway.
[21:43] <MasterofPuppets> Would they?
[21:43] <Dcoetzee> I wouldn't call it a sub-admin proposal :-P
[21:43] <MasterofPuppets> I'm still reading about the limitations.
[21:43] <SigmaWP> Dunno
[21:43] <MasterofPuppets> Dcoetzee: Well, yes, but with all due respect, that's essentially what this is.
[21:43] <MasterofPuppets> An administrator with limited access to tools.
[21:43] <SigmaWP> No
[21:43] <gde33> a socker for puppets
[21:43] <SigmaWP> It's called give-me-the-fucking-delete-button
[21:44] <Dcoetzee> I think of it more like a normal user given temporary access to admin tools.
[21:44] <gde33> admins only work on sunday
[21:44] <MasterofPuppets> Dcoetzee: Cup half empty, cup half full.
[21:44] <Dcoetzee> That's all semantics though :-P
[21:44] <SigmaWP> MasterofPuppets: But the half-full part makes me happy
[21:44] <MasterofPuppets> It just seems... strange. A temporary solution to what's stated to be a permanent problem.
[21:44] <MasterofPuppets> If administration is overworked, why work on a temporary solution? Why not just embrace RfA reform?
[21:45] <SigmaWP> Because nobody knows how to reform it
[21:45] <Dcoetzee> No.
�06[21:45] * tashir_coffee does
[21:45] <Dcoetzee> Because I think this proposal serves a purpose beyond just helping to deal with administrative backlogs.

[21:48] <Dcoetzee> MasterofPuppets: Not entirely. Some people just want to help get work done. But it also achieves that.
[21:48] <Dcoetzee> If the user chooses to pursue RfA later.
[21:48] <slakr> we already have sub-admins
[21:49] <slakr> in fact, like 5 different sub-admin flags
[21:49] <MasterofPuppets> We rarely have a user fail RfA nowadays thanks to the abundance of training materials, mentors, etc... I just feel this is extraneous, that's all.
[21:49] <slakr> and gazillions of noticeboards
[21:49] <slakr> short of literally giving them sysop, I fail to see how much more a "sub-admin" needs to do to prove himself as an admin
[21:49] <slakr> and if you're gonna give them sysop, then just make them a freaking admin.
[21:50] <MasterofPuppets> Those are my thoughts..
[21:50] <Dcoetzee> MasterofPuppets: Part of the purpose is also to indirectly encourage more people to run for RfA. Getting experience with tools builds confidence.
[21:50] <JeffPidginAFK> Isn't the sysop bit identical to admin group membership?
�03[21:50] * JeffPidginAFK is now known as Jeff_G
[21:51] <slakr> if you want to encourage timid people to run for RFA, find a way to ban the trolls from RFA.
[21:51] <TParis> WP:BANKEEPCASES?
[21:51] <slakr> otherwise, I assure you, people who want to be an admin will find their way to RFA.
�06[21:51] * Jeff_G tried to get a troll out of RFA, but too many were protecting him.
[21:51] <Dcoetzee> slakr: A worthy goal, but not the goal of this proposal.
[21:51] <MasterofPuppets> Dcoetzee: I'll airmail them cookies if they need confidence, but this just seems weird. Building a system that runs exactly the same as RFA, just with lower standards and lower payouts, will result in the exact same mindfuck RfA has become.
[21:51] <Jeff_G> yes, Keepscases
[21:52] <Alpha_Quadrant> TParis: strong support
�06[21:52] * slakr isn't actually proposing that, just using it as an example
[21:52] <slakr> that said
[21:52] <Alpha_Quadrant> if you were to delete RFA, he would only have about 100 edits left
[21:53] <Dcoetzee> MasterofPuppets: There are several mechanisms to defend against that. In addition to the restrictions on users, discussions will be moderated to remove/hide irrelevant material, and I introduced the conditional support to help avoid polarization.

[21:53] <MasterofPuppets> Dcoetzee: But that only creates more work, more things that need oversighting.
[21:53] <Dcoetzee> MasterofPuppets: I can't anticipate how discussions will go, but I sincerely expect them to be less dramaful.
[21:53] <slakr> and by the way
[21:53] <slakr> *why are you adding more bureaucracy*
[21:53] <MasterofPuppets> What if a "temp-sysop" comes into an editing conflict with a fully-fledged administrator? Does one of them have the right of way? Is it wheel warring if they disagree?
[21:53] <slakr> *we have far too much as it is*
[21:54] <Dcoetzee> slakr: To get more work done. That is, after all, the only legitimate excuse for bureaucracy.
[21:54] <MasterofPuppets> Dcoetzee: I apologize if it seems we're all surrounding you into a corner, that's not what this is. I fully am behind the idea of reforming RfA and helping people train to be administrators. But I feel that this isn't the way to go about it.
[21:54] <MasterofPuppets> Apologies if you feel like people are just basing.
[21:54] <Dcoetzee> MasterofPuppets: It's fine, everyone's entitled to their opinion and you raise good points. :-)
[21:54] <tashir_coffee> what if a fully-fledged administrator has relationship troubles because they are having trouble balancing work, family, and wikipedia?
�03[21:55] * Deathly (~deathly@069-064-236-042.pdx.net) has joined #wikipedia-en
[21:55] <slakr> tbh, I'm guessing this "sub-admin" stuff is, ironically, coming from jaded people who hate the bureaucracy involved in unseating admins in the first place.
[21:55] <Dcoetzee> MasterofPuppets: I would generally expect apprentices not to wheel war, just like real admins... if they do, that's surely a probation violation and they'd lose the tool.
[21:55] <tashir_coffee> do we really want to grief the 750 or however admins are still with us while $12 million sits in CitioBank earning 0.4% interest?
[21:55] <Dcoetzee> They should discuss disagreements.
[21:56] <slakr> I just say we leave RFA as it is. People who aren't admins already feel obligated to jump through all the hoops to get every single extended user right before +sysop
[21:56] <MasterofPuppets> Dcoetzee: Of course, and that's what *should* happen. But, as I'm sure you've seen, what should happen never happens.
[21:57] <MasterofPuppets> I guarantee that, within the first week, a temp admin will do something somebody didn't like, an administrator will revert without discussing, and you'll have a debacle over why the administrator should have rights greater then that of the temp admin, etc.
[21:57] <Dcoetzee> Ohh I see.
[21:57] <slakr> I disagree with that assumption
�03[21:58] * tashir_coffee is now known as tashir_nomnomnom
[21:58] <slakr> just because a tempadmin would exist doesn't mean that it'll turn other admins into tards
[21:58] <Dcoetzee> Well, I actually do want admins to undo stupid actions by apprentices. That's part of the learning process.
[21:58] <slakr> but again, to be honest, "temporary admins" are just a bad idea to begin with imo.
[21:58] <Dcoetzee> If an admin undoes an action and the apprentice disagrees however, they should definitely talk it out then. It's like the bold, revert, discuss cycle.
[21:58] <MasterofPuppets> Slakr: There are tard admins already. :P
[21:59] <slakr> it's unneeded bureaucracy... period. Every admin should be considered to be a "temp admin" if he's gonna be going hog-wild
[21:59] <slakr> because let's face it
[21:59] <slakr> they'll get desysopped.
[21:59] <MasterofPuppets> Dcoetzee: Right. But see, that's where the bureaucracy steps in. We spend hours of policy-writing trying to ensure that administrative privileges are seen as No Big Deal - but the second you give someone a part of the tools, then tell them "Master of Puppets over there, he's superior to you" - what message does that send?
[21:59] <zscout370> and their decisions generally reversed
[21:59] <TParis> It creates a lot of drama to desysop an admin.  Not saying it can't and isn't done, but it's always an "event" to do it.
[22:00] <slakr> zscout370: exactly.
[22:00] <Mike_H> Dickinson, 56, continued: "The fact of the matter is [Tyra Banks] makes like $90 million. She makes a lot of money per year still hawking that franchise worldwide -- they're doing it in every country -- and it's CoverGirl who chooses the winner."

[22:01] <Dcoetzee> MasterofPuppets: I don't think this is actually very different from how things work now. Administrators reverse each other's actions all the time.
[22:02] <Dcoetzee> I've undeleted many an incorrect speedy deletion, for example.
[22:02] <Dcoetzee> It becomes wheel warring if goes beyond the one revert without discussion.
[22:02] <MasterofPuppets> Dcoetzee: Yes, but we're functionally equal. A temporary admin isn't functionally equal to a full admin, and they won't be seen as in equal standing.
[22:03] <Dcoetzee> In some sense they're not quite equal in that they're still learning whereas most admins are quite experienced.
[22:03] <slakr> ...and....it's unneded bureaucracy--and redundant; *all admins are temporary admins when it comes to issues of abuse*
[22:03] <slakr> that's the whole idea behind "adminship is not a big deal"
[22:03] <Dcoetzee> But I would hope everyone would treat each other as colleagues.
[22:03] <Dcoetzee> Perhaps I'm idealistic :-P
[22:03] <MasterofPuppets> slakr: Exactly.

[22:30] <TParis> IAR is a reason to edit war?  It's ambiguous what "improve the encyclopedia" means and an unstable article isn't improving it.
[22:31] <Dcoetzee> Here's an example.
[22:31] <Alpha_Quadrant> unless it is listed at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:3RRNO IAR doesn't apply

[22:31] <Dcoetzee> Say a WP:INCOMPETENT editor is repeatedly introducing inscrutable material with good intentions. It's not vandalism and isn't listed at 3RRNO, but it's totally sensible to revert it.

[22:33] <Logan_> Peter-C: Don't be nice to Gfoley4.
[22:33] <Dcoetzee> TParis: Yeah I'm not advocating reverting in that circumstances exactly, just saying it's defensible as an IAR action.
[22:33] <Peter-C> Gfoley4 - I can craft a boat out of oak in a week

[22:34] <Dcoetzee> TParis: I agree... I struggled to identify a plausible example because 3RRNO has been documenting reasonable exceptions forever :-P
[22:34] <Gfoley4> yes, I knew I'd mess up the quote
[22:35] <Gfoley4> for all those who don't know what the hell we're talking about, look up "Parks & Recreation"
[22:35] <Dcoetzee> But I'm a fan in principle of the idea of that IAR really does apply to everything (except for illegal content).
[22:36] <Dcoetzee> I kinda wish there were an equivalent of IAR in real life. In the legal system.
[22:36] <Dcoetzee> Like, you should get off if you try to sue somebody for assault who pushed you out of the way of an oncoming car.
[22:36] <Dcoetzee> er
[22:36] <Dcoetzee> If somebody tries to sue you for... yeah
[22:37] <Dcoetzee> You know what I mean
[22:37] <Dcoetzee> Juries sort of do that with nullification.
[22:37] <Dcoetzee> But rarely.
[22:39] <TParis> I think we need to make lawyers more accountable for the lawsuits they bring.
[22:39] <TParis> My stepdad is a lawyer btw ;)  I say that with him in mind.
[22:39] <Peter-C> o_o
[22:40] <Dcoetzee> There are legal penalties for frivolous lawsuits. Perhaps they don't go far enough.
[22:41] <Peter-C> bad lawsuits = death by firing squad

[22:53] <tashir> Say a parent is trying to teach their child to edit. Because of typical kid behavior seen as vandalism, and confusion involving the same IP/computer/whatever, they get indef blocked. The parent doesn't want to disclose that they have a minor editing. What to do?

[22:54] <Peter-C> O_o
[22:55] <tashir> yeah, so, that's a legitimate reason that a parent wouldn't want to disclose that they have, e.g., a young girl trying to learn to edit, right?
[22:55] <Peter-C> From her PoV, yes, from our PoV, no.
[22:55] <SigmaWP> Never put pictures of yourself on the internet
[22:56] <tashir> there is another similar situation involving kids messing around on parents computers, but it's harder to explain, and I think it's more common
[22:56] <SigmaWP> By default
[22:56] <Dcoetzee> Peter-C: I met GorillaWarfare in Boston last summer so I knew. I uploaded a photo of her actually but nobody noticed :-P
[22:56] <SigmaWP> o.O
[22:56] <Peter-C> Dcoetzee - I went to her page, saw that epic photo, and saw you took it and I thought to myself "I WANT HIM TO TAKE MY PHOTO"
[22:57] <tashir> but it boils down to this: suppose a formerly respected editor apparently goes rogue and starts spewing curse words, and gets indefed (it's more common than you think)
[22:57] <Peter-C> And I also learned you did Kevins
[22:57] <Dcoetzee> She's a good editor. And cute ;-) But 4chan needs to leave her alone.

[23:03] <Deathly> yesterday or so
[23:03] <tashir> Here's another one: say a kid on a shared computer is serial BLP vandalizing, an admin blocks and cites a policy that says "you're indefed and never come back", the kid turns off the power and goes to bed. Parent comes in, turns it on and gets a new IP address. Later the kid can edit freely, and the help pages all still encourages it. How does the kid know that they haven't been forgiven?

[23:05] <Deathly> ip bans are obsolete
[23:05] <thingg> Maid: XD XD
[23:05] <Dcoetzee> tashir: They won't. That's the problem with IPs. Either they'll learn their lesson or eventually the whole IP block will get a block.
[23:06] <Dcoetzee> That has nothing to do with shared computers.
[23:06] <Dcoetzee> It's about dynamic IPs.
[23:06] <Deathly> everyone has access to dynamic ips

[23:06] <Deathly> or with a credit card, aws elastic ips for a ubuntu instance, running a ssh tunnel
[23:06] <Dcoetzee> Dynamic IPs change all on their own, they don't need parents to do it.
[23:06] <tashir> but that doesn't necessarily happen. The kid can't tell the difference between being blocked on an old IP (not indef, just lengthy, sorry) and being forgiven
[23:06] <Deathly> you gonna block all of amazon?

[23:09] <tashir> there's a similar set of policy dilemmas with beginning (e.g. second) language learners. But with them it's not so much vandalism and BLP as it is NOR and WP:V

[23:11] <Peter-C> I started to edit in 6th grade :3
[23:11] <tashir> by yourself?
[23:11] <Peter-C> mhm
[23:11] <jdelanoy> tashir: yes, in 2009. But they ended up getting blocked :(
[23:11] <Earwig> SigmaWP: yeah?
[23:11] <tashir> aww
[23:11] <SigmaWP> Earwig: Nevermind, Dcoetzee beat you
[23:12] <tashir> I'm pretty sure kids get blocked a lot.
[23:12] <Earwig> ...but he didn't do anything :(
[23:12] <Peter-C> I didn't get blocked...
[23:12] <SigmaWP> He pointed at himself.

[23:14] <Maid> Never log in on a school computer though :P
[23:14] <jdelanoy> conservapedia makes my parents laugh

[23:15] <Dcoetzee> Maid: Uh oh :-/ Left yourself logged in by mistake?
[23:15] <tashir> my daughter added a youtube video as an external link to a biology article when she was 7. I was in the room helping, but I wasn't looking at the keyboard or the screen. It took about 15 minutes.
[23:15] <SigmaWP> Maid: There goes your RfA
[23:15] <Maid> Well, printed something off and left it unattended for a few minutes
[23:15] <Tannerbaum> jdelanoy: so, what are you majoring in?

[23:15] <Deathly> i'm suprised someone hasnt used one of these 100k member botnets to spam advertising text on wp

[23:18] <jdelanoy> that would be awesome
[23:18] <Tannerbaum> i think I like the latter more
[23:18] <TParis> Tannerbaum: Neither.  I've done both and I can tell you that users in both jobs make you wanna go postal.

[23:52] <slakr> same goes for pubmed. :P
[23:53] <{Soap}> for some people, drinking lots of water at mealtime will help

[23:54] <slakr> yeah, that was what I was about to say (about protein)
[23:54] <slakr> depening on the amino acid composition of the protein you're taking in
[23:54] <tashir> well now you have two secondary peer reviewed literature reviews with which to edit [[kidney stone]]
[23:55] <slakr> and the problem with calcium intake
[23:55] <slakr> is that just "taking calcium" or having something "with calcium in it"
[23:55] <slakr> doesn't mean it's going to be absorbed effectively at all
[23:55] <slakr> it does best when it's emulsified in fat
[23:55] <slakr> or other hydrophobic stuff iirc
[23:55] <tashir> any calcium which is not absorbed gets excreted in feces

[23:57] <slakr> (@Dcoetzee)
[23:57] <tashir> well, clearly the calcium has to come from somewhere. Almost all was originally intake, except what you got from your mom's placenta
[23:57] <slakr> :P

[23:57] <Dcoetzee> slakr: I don't eat a lot of soy. Mostly grain. Cause I'm really really poor right now :-P
[23:57] <tashir> and that was her intake, so of course you're right
[23:57] <Dcoetzee> Living on ~$600/mo.
[23:57] <slakr> yeah, but do you normally
[23:57] <tashir> ah HA! more evidence for my admins-need-money hypothesis!
[23:57] <Hello> slakr: It's good to be back - it's good to be back.
[23:57] <slakr> (or did you for months/years before your stones
[23:58] <Dcoetzee> Hmm before my stone I did eat out a lot more often.
[23:58] <Dcoetzee> But not soy so much
[23:58] <slakr> ah ok n/m then
[23:58] <Dcoetzee> I have a family history (like, everyone in my direct family), so there's that.
[23:58] <slakr> I've heard some stuff about issues with soy and kidney stones if you're not drinking enough wayter
[23:58] <slakr> water*
[23:58] <slakr> ah
[23:59] <Dcoetzee> I'm surprised I got them though because I've always been a thirsty person. I drink water like every minute of the day.
[23:59] <slakr> so you might just have some smaller renal tubules or something
[23:59] <Dcoetzee> Yeah possibly. My brother's didn't get stuck for this long.
