[17:44] <SHINNOX1770> ¿Por qué me acusan?
[17:44] <juancarlos> Porque vives en Kansas. Y la persona quien me estalkió le gusta cambiar su IP pero vive acerca de ti.

[17:49] <tommorris> "Those that participated in the Democratic forum included anti-abortion activist Randall Terry and satirical candidate Vermin Supreme. After delivering his final statement, Supreme exclaimed that "Jesus told me to make Randall Terry gay" and proceeded to glitter bomb Terry while shouting, "he's turning gay." Terry had earlier affirmed his opposition to same-sex marriage, comparing it slavery and abortion."
[17:49] <Shirik> oh safari
[17:49] <Shirik> this implies you're on a mac
[17:49] <Shirik> that's why it won't work

[17:52] <lucasoutloud> Peter-C: Mine is on break until Jan 2 because we ended semester exams last Friday.
[17:52] <Peter-C> >:(
[17:52] <Qcoder00> tommorris:  had you considered writing to the House of Commons asking them for a 'free' picture of all the current members?
[17:52] <tommorris> Qcoder00: yeah... that's been discussed at WMUK. there are issues.
[17:52] <Qcoder00> What are the issues?
[17:52] <Qcoder00> Licensing would be something like OGL surely?
[17:53] <tommorris> no. the current official photographs are done commercially, not OGL
[17:53] <Ironholds> Qcoder00: the issue is such pictures don't exist
[17:53] <Qcoder00> Ah
[17:53] <Qcoder00> :(
[17:53] <tommorris> the "official" photographs are done by a photo agency

[17:54] <Qcoder00> Oh well
�06[17:54] * Peter-C advises Sven_Manguard to walk around his barf
[17:54] <tommorris> Qcoder00: there is a solution though we've discussed. namely, the next election, we formally ask the House of Commons staff to include a thing in the new and returning MPs "welcome to Parliament" packs asking them to be photographed on such and such a day by one of our volunteer photographers
[17:54] <juancarlos> Peter-C: whoever lives in that manor will be upset
[17:54] <juancarlos> you better clean it up!
�06[17:54] * Peter-C barfs in fear
[17:54] <Qcoder00> Ironholds: I'm sure you;d like 'free' pictures of all current Supreme Court  Judges as well

[17:56] <Qcoder00> I note the OGL license Cat on Commons already has some semi-official photos of  Cabinet level figures in the UK
[17:56] <tommorris> Qcoder00: though, people to help hunt down OGL photos and upload them to Commons are always appreciated. your file skillz would be useful
[17:56] <Sven_Manguard> Ironholds? Nah, he's only interested in images of Ruth Bader Ginsburg

[19:00] <Snowolf> I dunno if you don't realize it, but the normal avenue for the deletion of articles is AfD
[19:00] <juancarlos> So,
[19:00] <juancarlos> I had to undelete.
[19:00] <Snowolf> PROD is a shortened version of that
[19:00] <Snowolf> and CSD is a set of exception that can be dealt with immediately
[19:01] <Snowolf> juancarlos: funnyfarm299
�06[19:01] * juancarlos eyes funnyfarm299
[19:01] <barts1a> Snowolf: If ANY article is not notable then it should be nuked regardless of the subject area notablility cannot be proven in

[19:01] <Snowolf> barts1a: this is not the way wikipedia is.
[19:01] <juancarlos> the upload was 22 December
[19:01] <Snowolf> Also, CSD doesn't deal with non notable at all

[19:02] <Theo10011> hello my king
[19:02] <juancarlos> No one had any information.
[19:02] <barts1a> Snowolf: By non notable do you mean like ZERO references and/or NO REMOTELY reliable sources provided
[19:02] <Theo10011> I was asking about you all last month.
[19:02] <Snowolf> barts1a: references are not related to A7 at all
[19:02] <Theo10011> I care. :(
[19:02] <juancarlos> barts1a: He means, if it doesn't /assert/ notability (claim)
[19:03] <Snowolf> barts1a: please read the policy, it only deals with stuff that didn't make an assertion, not with "not credible assertions"
[19:03] <Snowolf> for that there's PROD and AfD
[19:03] <Snowolf> which are normal avenues
[19:03] <juancarlos> Theo10011: I took a break. I think not using wp/irc as much during the school year helps w/my focus. :-)
[19:03] <Snowolf> it's CSD that's the exception
[19:03] <barts1a> So no refs does not assert notability correct?
[19:03] <Snowolf> No refs is irrelevant
[19:03] <juancarlos> incorrect. just if the text asserts notability
[19:03] <Snowolf> for the 3rd time...

[19:36] <barts1a> a rather decent first case for the new crop
[19:36] <{Soap}> Malleus has an arbcom case now?
[19:36] <Guerillero> it will be huge
[19:36] <barts1a> yes
[19:36] <Guerillero> most of the community is coming out for it
[19:37] <Steven_Zhang> and i have to cover it :p
[19:37] <barts1a> see
[19:37] <Steven_Zhang> great.
[19:37] <Steven_Zhang> fuck my life
[19:37] <crazynas> o.O
[19:37] <Guerillero> for what?
[19:38] <Steven_Zhang> arb report for the signpost
[19:38] <Guerillero> krill, corren, and ellen have all recused
[19:38] <Steven_Zhang> coren wont be an arb
[19:38] <barts1a> Coren IS an arb!
[19:39] <Guerillero> this case is part of the 2011 crew's load
[19:39] <Steven_Zhang> Yes.
[19:39] <Guerillero> not the 2012
[19:39] <Steven_Zhang> eh, it depends
[19:39] <Steven_Zhang> I'm not sure how it works.
[19:39] <Guerillero> the people who accept the case take it
[19:39] <barts1a> eitherway they won't be in this one
[19:39] <barts1a> If I was an arb I would rescue myself from this case as well
[19:40] <Steven_Zhang> I'd accept.
[19:40] <Steven_Zhang> i think i'll work on my draft here.
[19:41] <GabrielF> ok I have a new favorite quote from a wikipedia article I read today:
[19:41] <{Soap}> ah, so Malleus is blocked yet again
[19:41] <GabrielF> "hree facts I found interesting is Ronnie Grisanti’s is only open Monday-Saturday between the hours of 5:00 P.M and 10:00 P.M., Ronnie Grisanti’s offers catering, and one of the recipes, Elfo Special, is featured in Mary and Vincent Price cookbook."
[19:41] <Fluffernutter> i think he's unblocked at the moment, for participating in the case
�15[19:41] * Vito (~Vito@unaffiliated/vito) Quit (Quit: ZNC -�)
[19:41] <barts1a> Fluffernutter: He was reblocked at his request
[19:41] <GabrielF> please don't post your homework to wikipedia!
[19:41] <Steven_Zhang> Yeah
[19:42] <GorillaWarfare> Do you know why Krill, Coren, and Ellen all recused?
�15[19:43] * Beria_ (~Beria@wikimedia/Beria) Quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds�)
[19:43] <barts1a> {Soap} The story that I can see behind this is that Malleus said the word "cunt" directed at nobody in particular but someone took offence 19 hours after it was resolved and decided to indef block Malleus. He was then unblocked by John after discussion on ANI then reblocked by Hawkeye7 with a false claim of a consensus to reblock on ANI
[19:44] <barts1a> then the arbcom case happened

[19:44] <BarkingFish> barts1a: There was also a threat to go to arbcom by Protonk if Malleus was unblocked from Thumperwad's hit.
[19:44] <BarkingFish> that was on the AN/I thread last night
[19:45] <barts1a> It was  Alexandria who filed the case

[19:46] <GorillaWarfare> {Soap}: I have no idea, hence why I asked
[19:46] <barts1a> I have to agree with Malleus that it is rather farcical that someone faked consensus for a block
[19:46] <{Soap}> oh
[19:47] <{Soap}> sorry

[19:47] <GorillaWarfare> *too
[19:47] <{Soap}> Mayvbe they just like Malleus too much to be impartial
[19:47] <causasui> Malleus wouldn't have to worry about people faking consensus if he would quit being a royal dick whenever he felt like it.

[19:47] <Thorncrag> just my two cents.
[19:47] <BarkingFish> Peter-C: Good man.  Let's hope you get on and do well.
[19:48] <GorillaWarfare> causasui: Of all dickish things he's said, that's not the worst. It's hardly offensive and, as Chzz pointed out to me, somewhat cultural.
[19:48] <Peter-C> GorillaWarfare - I was in class doing research and I was all like "I KNO THAT GURL!" - cool story, right?
[19:48] <BarkingFish> Guerillero: That's possibly why some of the arbs have recused themselves - they've dealt with him before.
[19:48] <Steven_Zhang> GorillaWarfare, probably for great justice and epic lulz

[19:49] <Steven_Zhang> lol
[19:49] <Steven_Zhang> ya
[19:49] <Guerillero> GorillaWarfare: thats why this is fun to watch
[19:49] <Thorncrag> situations like the malleus one are allowed to explode cataclysmically because we don't have enough bright line rules and automatic penalties (meaning, too much discretion) -- that's just my opinion
�15[19:49] * xjiujiu (~quassel@ Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer�)
[19:49] <causasui> GorillaWarfare: No, it's not the worst thing he's said. So what? Once we let the worst thing slide, is he permanently allowed to say anything because it's "not as bad as that other thing we let go"?
[19:49] <Peter-C> BarkingFish - Ideally I will get an A+++ as I have been waiting for this moment for 2 years :P
[19:49] <causasui> The problem is a pattern of behavior
[19:50] <Guerillero> he isn't that bad

[19:50] <Seddon> Guerillerio: minus the down
[19:50] <BarkingFish> GorillaWarfare: That is one reason why I'd like to see a reserve arbcom - if too many people recuse, we need others who can take their place to form a decent number who will take the case on
[19:50] <NuclearWarfare> No, not really
[19:50] <{Soap}> hmm
[19:50] <{Soap}> a reserve arbcom
[19:51] <BarkingFish> At the moment we only have 3 arbs prepared to here this out of a total of god knows how many we have
[19:51] <GorillaWarfare> BarkingFish: It's Malleus. Everyone knows him one way or another, and everyone has an opinion about him.
[19:51] <NuclearWarfare> A case can be handled with 3 people if necessary quite easily
[19:51] <funnyfarm299> I've never heard of him...
[19:51] <Guerillero> Seddon: I have held a wonderful conversation with him
[19:51] <{Soap}> lol
[19:51] <causasui> Guerillero: I don't buy this either. There is somehow this mood out there that Malleus is excused for flaming because he's always "provoked". Well, he's obviously easily provoked, because he's back on AN/I every week with some dickish comment. People have free will and nobody typed the flaming for him.
[19:51] <NuclearWarfare> If it turns out there is someone that absolutely everyone has an opinion on, you handle things by the doctrine of necessity

[19:54] <Doc_glasgow> 2006 was a Giano case, and 2007, and 2008 ...
[19:54] <GabrielF> I wrote an article about something similar to a "reserve arbcom" - the first time women got to be judges in Texas happened in 1925 when basically every male lawyer in the state had to recuse himself from a case
[19:54] <{Soap}> GabrielF: interesting
[19:54] <{Soap}> what was it about?
[19:54] <GabrielF>
[19:55] <barts1a> Block!
[19:55] <kim_bruning> mindspillage, we'll consider it. I'll get the delorean, we can ask Fluffernutter to snarf a flux capacitor, and Mako can do the time circuits?
[19:55] <{Soap}> ah
[19:55] <Doc_glasgow> causasui: your problem is that every time you get on a soapbox and demand arbcom take strong action against a troll, all you do is feed him

[19:55] <{Soap}> but OK
[19:55] <Guerillero> Doc_glasgow: he can be a ton of fun at times :P

[19:56] <mindspillage> I didn't think Fluffernutter's company lent those out at all actually.
[19:56] <kim_bruning> mindspillage, hence "snarf"
[19:56] <mindspillage> kim_bruning: we do over, of course...
[19:56] <Doc_glasgow> causasui: by "you", I meant "one"
[19:56] <Doc_glasgow> causasui: no, because the block bit doesn't work
[19:56] <kim_bruning> mindspillage, ah, yes...
[19:57] <causasui> Yeah, the block bit doesn't work, so you have to get arbcom to resolve it. Catch-22? The troll is fed while he's on death row.
[19:58] <Doc_glasgow> causasui: nope, because arbcom will do nothin

[20:01] <Seddon> kim_bruning: He does like us :D
[20:02] <Doc_glasgow> causasui: the problem is that the admin who blocks for incivility IS causing disruption. Because the block won't hold. So the block does the opposite o what is intended. Civility blocks simply don't work
[20:02] <mindspillage> kim_bruning: he's an advisory board member.
[20:02] <Doc_glasgow> tey never have
[20:02] <Thehelpfulone> Stelpa: it just unnecessarily broadcasts 2 messages every time you go away to a channel with 187 users

[20:02] <NuclearWarfare> Bit of a Catch-22 there
[20:02] <kim_bruning> mindspillage, I thought so :-)
[20:03] <NuclearWarfare> The block would hold and there would be no disruption if people didn't get all worked up about it

[20:08] <Doc_glasgow> there are no ealistic solutions
[20:08] <causasui> Welp I'll leave it up to people who want to keep trying then.
[20:09] <kim_bruning> Doc_glasgow, that's very negative, there have to be mitigation strategies at the least :-)
[20:09] <Doc_glasgow> ideally, you need to accept that blocks on established users ought to be rare, thought through, and only reversed in cases of clear abuse.  You can't do that with 1400 equal admins
�15[20:09] * erikhaugen (~erikhauge@wikipedia/ErikHaugen) Quit (Quit: erikhaugen�)
[20:09] <kim_bruning> Doc_glasgow, ok, why can't you do that with 1400 admins? (of whom possible 140 are very active?)
[20:09] <Doc_glasgow> because they are not collegial enough
[20:10] <Doc_glasgow> and civility will alway be subjective
�03[20:10] * Falcorian (~Falcorian@wikipedia/Falcorian) has joined #wikipedia-en
[20:10] <Doc_glasgow> so someone will always disagree
[20:10] <kim_bruning> Doc_glasgow, ok, that might not be a bad thing
[20:10] <kim_bruning> Doc_glasgow, perhaps the problem is with the blocking
[20:10] <Moe_Epsilon> uh, 1500+ admins*  740+ active*
[20:10] <kim_bruning> Doc_glasgow, would some other action be more effective?
[20:10] <Doc_glasgow> and the disagrement can be gamed by the clever troll
[20:10] <kim_bruning> Moe_Epsilon, still too little, but better :-)
[20:11] <kim_bruning> Doc_glasgow, right, so we need to figure some other course of action
[20:11] <Doc_glasgow> kim_bruning: no, not really. A deterrent needs to remove something the person values
[20:11] <Moe_Epsilon> if inactive > active, problems :p
[20:11] <Doc_glasgow> and other than editing, what is there?
[20:11] <kim_bruning> Doc_glasgow, do we want a deterrant?
[20:11] <kim_bruning> Doc_glasgow, or do we want to just prevent further incivility?
[20:12] <Doc_glasgow> kim_bruning: discipline (of any type) needs a deterrent. Unless you really believe the wikilove jimbofluff
[20:12] <Steven_Zhang> All, how does this look?
[20:12] <Doc_glasgow> How do you prevent, without a consequence
�15[20:12] * GabrielF (~GabrielF@wikipedia/GabrielF) Quit (Quit: GabrielF�)
[20:13] <kim_bruning> Doc_glasgow, I only believe deterrants are required for external discipline
[20:13] <kim_bruning> unless I am mistaken :-)
[20:13] <Doc_glasgow> so, how do you enforce internal discipline?
�03[20:13] * agk-wiki is now known as agk-busy
[20:14] <kim_bruning> Doc_glasgow, you don't. That's why it is called internal discipline
[20:14] <Doc_glasgow> eh?
[20:14] <Doc_glasgow> Ah, I mean "internal to the community"
[20:14] <kim_bruning> I mean internal to the person
[20:14] <Snowolf> in[ternal]discipline?
[20:14] <kim_bruning> and external to the person
�15[20:14] * Gfoley4 (~Gfoley4@wikipedia/Gfoley4) Quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds�)
[20:15] <kim_bruning> there's at least 2 different ways of raising kids , one based on external and one based on internal discipline :-)
[20:15] <Doc_glasgow> kim_bruning: you are presupposing that incivility stems from a lack of self-control.  The other possibility is that it is quite deliberately chosen
[20:15] <kim_bruning> Doc_glasgow, and when quite deliberately chosen, it could well be a utilitarian calculation :-)
�06[20:15] * kim_bruning very rarely does that
[20:15] <Steven_Zhang> anyone
[20:15] <Steven_Zhang> ?
[20:15] <Guerillero> both are true
[20:16] <Doc_glasgow> kim_bruning: yup,
[20:16] <kim_bruning> BrutalSarcasm and that ilk
[20:16] <Doc_glasgow> but if my utility is to enjoy provoking people?
[20:16] <kim_bruning> that's not not what I mean by "utilitarian" in general. ;-)
[20:16] <kim_bruning> it's a philosophy on what is right and wrong.
[20:17] <kim_bruning> but if you are only on wp to provoke people, you're obviously not working on an encyclopedia
[20:17] <kim_bruning> ;-)
[20:17] <Snowolf> Some people are here for both :)
[20:17] <kim_bruning> But then you can just block them, not just for civility, usually :-P
[20:17] <Doc_glasgow> it isn't that binary
�15[20:17] * Maryana ( Quit (Quit: AFK�)
[20:17] <kim_bruning> Snowolf, and aren't those the interesting ones!
[20:18] <Snowolf> Interesting isn't the first word I'd pick, but I understand what you mean
�03[20:18] * Gfoley4 (~Gfoley4@wikipedia/Gfoley4) has joined #wikipedia-en
[20:18] <Doc_glasgow> most people are on wikipedia for njoyment

[20:18] <kim_bruning> Snowolf, for chinese values of
[20:18] <Doc_glasgow> they may enjoy creating content, and enjoy provoking people
[20:18] <kim_bruning> Doc_glasgow, still? People are shocked when I suggest that these days, sometimes
[20:19] <kim_bruning> right, so then we need to make it more enyoable for them to create content than to provoke people
[20:19] <Doc_glasgow> no one edits Wikipedia for pure altruism (that's just Jimbofluff)
[20:19] <kim_bruning> Doc_glasgow, you say that word "jimbofluff' like you didn't just make that up on the spot
[20:19] <Snowolf> It's an expressive word tho
[20:19] <Doc_glasgow> I made it up some time ago
�06[20:20] * Steven_Zhang pokes Snowolf 
�06[20:20] * Snowolf is not here, clearly
�06[20:21] * Steven_Zhang has been asking for ages without response :P
�15[20:21] * causasui (40acad8a@gateway/web/freenode/ip. Quit (Quit: Page closed�)
[20:23] <Doc_glasgow> kim_bruning: I googled to see when I'd first used "Jimbofluff" - I found it in a mailing list post, which is basically agreeing with what you are saying now
[20:23] <BarkingFish> Shirik: just to let you know, that Thomas and Friends AFD, nawlinwiki's closed it as a speedy per G3
[20:24] <Steven_Zhang> does anyone know a tool to find out how many times a page was edited in a certain amount of days?
[20:24] <kim_bruning> Doc_glasgow, right. More carrots
[20:24] <kim_bruning> ...
[20:24] <kim_bruning> (less sticks)
[20:24] <kim_bruning> or, given that we don't have any decent sticks
[20:24] <kim_bruning> we may need to resort to carrots as our only hope
[20:25] <Doc_glasgow> ha, that post of mine was really rather good
[20:25] <{Soap}> steven Zhang, well theres a hit counter
[20:25] <kim_bruning> Doc_glasgow, yeah, it was :-PO
[20:25] <{Soap}> for the edit counter I guess you just have the article history page
[20:25] <kim_bruning> Doc_glasgow, you should read it sometime ;-)

[20:27] <Ironholds> hey, kim_bruning!
[20:27] <Ironholds> what's the question?
�03[20:27] * swarfega is now known as swarfega|away
[20:27] <kim_bruning> Ironholds, I saw you being nice to our finnish friend on fondation-l. I would ask you what you did to the real ironholds... but you know? You can keep him ;-)
[20:27] <Ironholds> he's in a cage in my basement
[20:27] <Ironholds> every day, he makes nails with a lump of iron and a tiny file
[20:27] <kim_bruning> Oh good. be sure to give him plenty of bread and water then
[20:27] <Ironholds> every night, I nail him to the wall for 12 hours so he can rest
[20:27] <Ironholds> and repeat.
[20:27] <Ironholds> Steven_Zhang: I was wanted?
[20:27] <kim_bruning> Ironholds, :-P
[20:28] <Steven_Zhang> yeah
[20:28] <lucasoutloud> That sounds like the perfect exotic vacation.
[20:28] <kim_bruning> Doc_glasgow, well, that's where consensus can come in, can't it?
�03[20:28] * GabrielF (~GabrielF@wikipedia/GabrielF) has joined #wikipedia-en
[20:28] <Steven_Zhang> Ironholds: is there a way to find out how often a page was edited within a period of time?
[20:28] <kim_bruning> Doc_glasgow, if 1 person likes getting into fights, and 2 people don't want them to...
[20:28] <Doc_glasgow> kim_bruning: yes, that's the model that is currently failing
[20:28] <Steven_Zhang> i need it for the arb report
[20:28] <kim_bruning> Steven_Zhang, you can do it by hand if you like
[20:28] <Steven_Zhang> i have <- that
[20:28] <Steven_Zhang> lol..
[20:28] <kim_bruning> Doc_glasgow, why is that model failing?
[20:28] <Steven_Zhang> nty
[20:28] <GabrielF> don't do 3D pie charts
[20:29] <BarkingFish> Ironholds: I don't suppose you have a few quick moments to discuss what I spoke about last night, do you?
[20:29] <Doc_glasgow> kim_bruning: no idea, but it is
[20:29] <kim_bruning> Doc_glasgow, why do you say it's failing? ;-)
[20:29] <Steven_Zhang> GabrielF: eh, ok
[20:29] <Ironholds> BarkingFish: I forget what it was, I'm afraid!
[20:29] <GabrielF> they distort the area of each slice
[20:29] <BarkingFish> Pm ok, Ironholds?
[20:29] <Ironholds> BarkingFish: sure!
[20:29] <Seddon> BarkingFish: were you serious about Thomas and Friends?
[20:29] <BarkingFish> thanks
[20:29] <kim_bruning> Doc_glasgow, maybe it's because people think we need some other model, and aren't paying attention to it? ;-)
[20:29] <BarkingFish> Seddon: yes
[20:29] <Seddon> WTF???????
[20:29] <kim_bruning> Doc_glasgow, do we need some sort of patrol or so?
[20:29] <Ironholds> Steven_Zhang: nooo idea.
[20:29] <kim_bruning> Seddon, OMG!
[20:29] <Doc_glasgow> kim_bruning: that's where we came in. We've got incivil people - massive of drama - and no resolution (rinse and repeat)
[20:30] <Steven_Zhang> does anyone have an idea?
[20:30] <BarkingFish> It wasn't Thomas and Friends, it was a purported spin off - which doesn't exist and from what I can find, never did
[20:30] <Ironholds> Doc_glasgow: that's not a failure of consensus, actually
[20:30] <Doc_glasgow> kim_bruning: a civility patrol? Good grief, NO
[20:30] <BarkingFish> Just in the imagination of some blogger who thought he'd spread it a bit, Seddon
[20:30] <kim_bruning> Doc_glasgow, right. I used to secretly have a provocateur that got that kind of person off the wiki :-P
[20:30] <kim_bruning> Doc_glasgow, Shhh!
[20:30] <Seddon> BarkingFish: ohhhhhhhh good, you nearly made me go on a rampage :P
[20:30] <kim_bruning> Doc_glasgow, because if they start out being incivil and all, you can usually provoke them to do themselves in
[20:31] <kim_bruning> Doc_glasgow, that's one (dirty) way of doing it. I'm not sure it's the best way
[20:31] <kim_bruning> Doc_glasgow, how many cases are unresolved atm?
[20:31] <lucasoutloud> Augh, I think twinkle has half-broken on me.
[20:31] <Doc_glasgow> kim_bruning: that's incredibly inefficient, and leads to lots of disruptive drama and time wasting
[20:31] <kim_bruning> Doc_glasgow, Like I said, there have to be better ways :-)
[20:31] <kim_bruning> Doc_glasgow, but how big is the problem, atm?
[20:32] <Doc_glasgow> kim_bruning: depends at what end of the scale
[20:32] <Doc_glasgow> I suppose you could just ignore the incivilit
�15[20:32] * Thehelpfulone (~Helper@wikimedia/Thehelpfulone) Quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds�)
[20:32] <Doc_glasgow> and get on with other things
[20:32] <Doc_glasgow> just make [[WP:CIVIL]] a guideline
[20:32] <BarkingFish> Seddon: I know Thomas and Friends exists, this one had the most extraordinary cast of people providing voices, including two who are known dead :P
[20:32] <Doc_glasgow> and tell admins not to block
[20:33] <BarkingFish> If it wasn't a hoax, there's a medium involved
[20:33] <kim_bruning> Doc_glasgow, apparently, that would be a good start
[20:34] <kim_bruning> Doc_glasgow, but we still want people to be nice to each other
[20:34] <kim_bruning> Doc_glasgow, you could just be disgustingly nice to the provocateurs? ;-)
[20:34] <Doc_glasgow> kim_bruning: ou can ask tem nicely to do that
[20:34] <Doc_glasgow> and i they tell you to go fuck yourself?
[20:36] <kim_bruning> Well, that can be an enjoyabvle afternoo... No wait
�15[20:36] * bep (~britishen@reddit/operator/bep) Quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds�)
[20:36] <kim_bruning> well, I guess we need to figure out where "the line" is
�06[20:36] * kim_bruning scratches head

�15[20:37] * barts1a (~barts1a@wikipedia/barts1a) Quit (Quit: My IRC client has instructed me to shoot it if it ever advertises in a quit message�)
[20:37] <Thorncrag> The only way to really deal with incivility is to make automatic penalties for breaking clearly defined rules
[20:37] <Thorncrag> take out all discretion
[20:37] <kim_bruning> like, sure, everyone is a little incivil at times, but if you get 3 complaints in one day from different people, you've definitely gone too far?
[20:37] <kim_bruning> Thorncrag, to some extent, but that IS gameable
[20:38] <Ironholds> kim_bruning: so's 3RR ;p
[20:38] <Thorncrag> A hell of a lot less game able than it is now
[20:38] <Ironholds> so if I call you a cunt twice a day, every day, for a year, I'm fine? :P
[20:38] <kim_bruning> I'm very much against taking out discretion, in general
[20:38] <Doc_glasgow> kim_bruning: as I said in the post I linked. Any objective definition of civility (which could look like a 3RR) would end up counting sweary words
[20:38] <kim_bruning> that's in general though
[20:38] <Thorncrag> kim_bruning: I agree, but too much discretion is what causes so many of these disputes
[20:39] <Thorncrag> and then fuels them
[20:39] <Doc_glasgow> You cannot define civility
[20:39] <Doc_glasgow> it is too easy to game
[20:39] <kim_bruning> if it's undefinable, we can't have hard rules on it
[20:39] <Prodego> treat others respectfully
[20:39] <abartov> kim_bruning: Cunningham does indeed still talk about distributed wikis.  At least he was when I met him at WikiSym in October 2011.
[20:39] <Prodego> and you have nothing to worry about
[20:39] <abartov> kim_bruning: but I'm not really here, gotta run.
[20:39] <kim_bruning> abartov, <grin>Coolness. I wonder how he's doing
[20:39] <kim_bruning> abartov, tell me more sometime!
[20:39] <Doc_glasgow> So I can't call you a troll, but I can say "your edits could perhaps be mistaken for trolling"
[20:40] <kim_bruning> well, doesn't the british lower house have cool rules about this?
�06[20:40] * kim_bruning couldn't find them though
[20:40] <pakaran> [[unparlimentary language]]?
[20:40] <kim_bruning> I'm sure JamesF would know, it seems like his klind of hobby
[20:41] <kim_bruning> pakaran, I was looking for that for so long! Thanks!
�03[20:41] * bep (~britishen@reddit/operator/bep) has joined #wikipedia-en
[20:41] <Thorncrag> I agree it's hard to define, but really, you generally know it when you see it
[20:41] <pakaran> i don't think swearing is the issue.  there's a big, big diference between saying on an article talk page, where relevant, "the source indicates that King John fucked his brother over" and saying to another editor "You're an incompetent, inbred, incestious moron who should stop editing wikipedia and shoot yourself, ideally in the other order"
[20:42] <kim_bruning> Thorncrag, apparently not. Else there would be no disputes about blocking for incivility, eh? ;-)
[20:42] <BarkingFish> pakaran: The issue is not just swearing, it's general overall civility. Politeness, friendliness, something conducive to a pleasant atmosphere.
[20:42] <kim_bruning> hey, if you're being creative in your insults, that's something, at least
[20:42] <pakaran> and malleus, recurrently, fails at that
[20:43] <BarkingFish> MF is way beyond that, yet because he's such a good contributor (apparently), no bugger will get the fucking banhammer and hit him with it.
[20:43] <Thorncrag> kim_bruning: A fair point, although to your point of gaming, I think some people act intellectually dishonest in their defenses simply due to their bias/support for their people
[20:43] <BarkingFish> Cause they're all too freaking scared of the repercussions of it
[20:43] <Prodego> BarkingFish: no one gets away with it who does
[20:43] <kim_bruning> BarkingFish, balance, right?
[20:43] <kim_bruning> Thorncrag, seems very likely, yes :-)
[20:43] <BarkingFish> Prodego: precisely. And that's wrong.
�15[20:43] * Beria_ (~Beria@wikimedia/Beria) Quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds�)
[20:44] <BarkingFish> Regardless of how much somebody contributes, and how much good they do, NOBODY is above process.
[20:44] <Prodego> probably yes, we should apply the same policy to everyone
[20:44] <kim_bruning> BarkingFish, oooh, you're a process-ist then?
[20:44] <Thorncrag> For instance (and a assert I am completely neutral in the Malleus matter), a user's positive contributions has no bearing on whether a rule has been broken
�06[20:44] * kim_bruning doesn't believe in rules, of course
[20:44] <BarkingFish> kim_bruning: I'm in favor of "just because you're good, doesn't mean you're exempt from what everyone else suffers"
[20:44] <kim_bruning> Thorncrag, you're thinking it's VestedContributor ?
[20:44] <Thorncrag> It is however a mitigating factor in issuing a punishment
[20:45] <kim_bruning> Thorncrag, did we punish people then?
[20:45] <BarkingFish> Where there are rules, they should be applied consistently, across the board, and to everyone.
[20:45] <Thorncrag> well, substitute punishment with… responsive action? :)
[20:45] <kim_bruning> I thought we only tried to prevent and mitigate negative behaviour (by fair means or foul)
[20:45] <kim_bruning> BarkingFish, well, since wikipedia has no real rules, that's a bit of an issue :-)
[20:45] <kim_bruning> BarkingFish, how do we solve it here?
[20:45] <Thorncrag> Too true; I'm wondering, how many times has a sysop been blocked for incivility?
[20:46] <BarkingFish> kim_bruning: we have policies
[20:46] <kim_bruning> BarkingFish, they're more like patterns than like rules though
�06[20:46] * kim_bruning likes Ward Cunningham's terminology here
[20:46] <pakaran> Thorncrag, it was one major issue (along with editing with CoI) in Ed Poor being removed as a sysop.
[20:46] <pakaran> And he was one of the first editors we *had*.
[20:46] <kim_bruning> pakaran, Eh? When was Ed Poor ever incivil? Certainly never to me

[20:47] <BarkingFish> kim_bruning: yes, but when they clearly state at the top "This page documents an English Wikipedia policy, a widely accepted standard that all editors should normally follow."
[20:47] <Thorncrag> pakaran: ahh yes, but consider the fact that that required a major process right? whereas a non-sysop is often just blocked, right? Just pointing out a potential issue here
[20:47] <kim_bruning> pakaran, Ed overreached himself a couple of times.
[20:47] <pakaran> i may be misremembering; I'm sorry if so
[20:47] <BarkingFish> I would say that's fairly impassible
[20:47] <BarkingFish> a widely accepted standard that ALL EDITORS should normally follow.
[20:47] <kim_bruning> BarkingFish, it's widely accepted and you should normally follow it
[20:47] <kim_bruning> BarkingFish, what about abnormally?
[20:47] <pakaran> i see no reason sysops shouldn't be blocked for incivility
[20:48] <BarkingFish> Not "A widely accepted standard that most should follow, but you can get away with it if you're too fucking good at your job to lose"
[20:48] <Thorncrag> BarkingFish: These are exactly the types of things I am addressing in my proposal
[20:48] <pakaran> quite a few of the most active have been blocked for 3rr.
[20:48] <kim_bruning> pakaran, well, apparently some people would... and some of them are sysops ;-)
[20:48] <kim_bruning> BarkingFish, let's not make policies even more fossilized than they already are, shall we?
[20:49] <kim_bruning> it's one of the ways to kill a wiki: strangle the life out of it
[20:49] <BarkingFish> no, but at the same time, let's not give people exemption from them either
[20:49] <kim_bruning> BarkingFish, you want to repeal IAR?
[20:49] <BarkingFish> they exist for a reason, and it's not to be applied at will to whoever you think fit
[20:49] <BarkingFish> kim_bruning: I'd do that in a heartbeat given the chance
[20:49] <kim_bruning> BarkingFish, oh, I thought that was the whole point of wikipedia policy
[20:49] <Thorncrag> IAR should only be permitted when it comes strictly to content
[20:50] <kim_bruning> BarkingFish, Thorncrag : well, good to know who is out to kill the wiki then ;-)
[20:50] <pakaran> 90% of people who cite IAR don't understand it.
[20:50] <kim_bruning> Thorncrag, IAR is especially important in meta-situations actually
[20:50] <BarkingFish> kim_bruning: I'm not out to kill it.  I'm out to level the fucking playing field.
[20:50] <kim_bruning> pakaran, 90% of people who cite anything or do anything are crap at it ;-)
[20:50] <Thorncrag> It doesn't make sense… IAR was invented to allow someone to build content
�06[20:50] * kim_bruning blocks BarkingFish for using the word "fucking"
[20:50] <BarkingFish> One person shouldn't be exempt from following policy because the other 99.9% can't suck their balls up and apply it to them.
[20:51] <Prodego> BarkingFish: that's how consensus works
[20:51] <bep> is there a catfight going on in here p.p
[20:51] <Prodego> none of our rules are hard
[20:51] <kim_bruning> BarkingFish, actually, that's a good reason why someone might be exempted from following policy :-)
[20:51] <Prodego> if we decide the don't apply to someone then that's not fair, but that's also just how it goes
[20:51] <Steven_Zhang> Does anyone here have a toolserv account?
[20:51] <kim_bruning> and sometimes -while not "fair"- it's definitely beneficial to the encyclopedia
�15[20:51] * Jayflux ( Quit (Remote host closed the connection�)
[20:51] <Prodego> possibly
[20:52] <kim_bruning> Now Doc_glasgow was naming some situations where we have had outcomes where it is neither fair *nor* beneficial to the encyclopedia
[20:52] <Prodego> not necessarily
[20:52] <kim_bruning> I can totally agree that we can modify our procedures there
[20:52] <kim_bruning> Prodego, hmm, good point
[20:52] <kim_bruning> bep, I hope not :-)
[20:52] <bep> oh good

[20:57] <Prodego> the underscore belongs
[20:58] <{Soap}> ok
[20:58] <Prodego> pakaran: well, 'excited states' when you talk about these energies is not the same thing as at lower energy

[21:41] <kim_bruning> funnyfarm299, sounds like one of those football league games?
[21:41] <Tannerbaum> They have 1000 ports open
[21:41] <Thorncrag> kim_bruning: You are officially my favorite Wikipedian, ever.

[21:44] <kim_bruning> Tannerbaum, Oh I dunno, just give the site owner a few quid and ask 'em?
[21:44] <kim_bruning> Tannerbaum, errr, you just did. Portscanner :-P
[21:45] <Tannerbaum> kim_bruning: it shows ports in use, or open ports?
[21:45] <Sp33dyphil> derp: when I found something using "Find", and I close it, the browser brings me to the top of the paage
[21:45] <kim_bruning> ok, strictly speaking the portscanner was probably doing TCP, and pinging is ICMP .... :-P
[21:45] <kim_bruning> Tannerbaum, it shows open portsd

[22:09] <lucasoutloud> Aranda56: I don't think he was doing anything wrong.  We was simply pointing out examples of pornography on the commons that he thought should not be there.
[22:10] <Prodego> ok guys, new /nsi funnyfarm299
[22:10] <Prodego> err ignore that
[22:10] <Thorncrag> he was pointing out images that he thought deserved attention as candidates for deletion, making his ban extremely capricious...
[22:10] <zscout370> lucasoutloud, and many of those images, they been through several deletion requests because they were either kept or deleted (then undeleted) because of a antiporn crusade
�15[22:11] * GabrielF (~GabrielF@wikipedia/GabrielF) Quit (Quit: GabrielF�)
[22:11] <lucasoutloud> zscout370: Oh, what's another little disscussion on irc going to do?
[22:12] <zscout370> lucasoutloud, I have no problems having a discussion at all. I welcome it. But just pointing out what happened to those images in the past and why such a DR would not work.
[22:12] <lucasoutloud> zscout370: Alright then.
[22:13] <lucasoutloud> I still don't see how porn can be used on wikimedia, though.
[22:13] <zscout370> and there are many users who think like you
[22:14] <zscout370> and I agree with some of your points
[22:14] <lucasoutloud> It's not the fact that it's porn that really bugs me, it's the fact that some of the more experienced raiders on /v/ take advantage of those images.
[22:14] <zscout370> that is beyond our control

�03[22:14] * GabrielF (~GabrielF@wikipedia/GabrielF) has joined #wikipedia-en
[22:14] <Thorncrag> I actually think that not censoring porn has the effect of promoting censorship because Wikipedia will then get censored
�03[22:14] * foks is now known as foks|vaek
[22:15] <lucasoutloud> I don't suppose that limiting what users are allowed to use an image would go over well, either.
[22:15] <Thorncrag> for instance, public schools are NEVER going to allow porn to be viewed on their systems
[22:15] <zscout370> we have an ad hoc deletion called "no penis" where if it is just yet another webcam image of a cock, we delete it
[22:15] <Aranda56> the Malleus case should be a reason why we should have more ArbCom members, almost every ArbCom member has a strong opinion on him, or interacted with him, and so forth
[22:16] <zscout370> Thorncrag, I see those emails a lot as a part of OTRS so I agree there. Though I wonder if the Foundation ever thought of a school friendly version of Wikipedia.
�15[22:16] * Ty (~Ty@wikia/ZamorakO-o) Quit (Quit: We are Wikipedia, we are legion, here, have some wikilove, come help us edit?�)
[22:17] <lucasoutloud> "School freindly" just translates to censored.
[22:17] <Thorncrag> Lots of (educationally) sex-related pages I can't even access at work
[22:17] <Thorncrag> ;)
[22:18] <lucasoutloud> Now that I think of it, are there regulations about sex-related images on Commons?
�03[22:18] * stwalkerster (~stwalkers@pdpc/supporter/student/stwalkerster) has joined #wikipedia-en
[22:18] <LauraHale> There was a school friendly version of English Wikipedia.
[22:18] <LauraHale> It was distributed on CD.
[22:18] <{Soap}> there was a failed project called Toby that would block out porn and other disturbing images while leaving text intact
[22:18] <LauraHale> This was 2007.
[22:18] <lucasoutloud> LauraHale: Do you mean Encarta?  :P
[22:18] <{Soap}>
[22:19] <zscout370> lucasoutloud, other than what is legally questionable to host, we have a "no penis" rule but that is not set in stone.
�15[22:20] * agk-busy (~agk-wiki@wikipedia/AGK) Quit (Quit: I flipped a three-sided coin: it came up "no consensus"�)
[22:20] <LauraHale> lucasoutloud: No, I mean WMF.
�15[22:20] * Netalarm (~Netalarm@TechEssentials/Netalarm) Quit (Quit: *poof*�)
[22:20] <LauraHale>
[22:21] <zscout370> lucasoutloud, what I am thinking is not necessarily a edited version where it is censored, but perhaps a way to check IPs for schools and see if there a setting that could be made for them. But that would be impossible to figure out.
[22:22] <lucasoutloud> LauraHale: That was an attempt at humour.
�06[22:22] * LauraHale has none :(
[22:22] <zscout370> and we have tried for years to come up with a policy on porn images, even after what was brought to the attention of Fixed (Fox) News
[22:23] <kim_bruning> we're not going to censor
[22:23] <kim_bruning> and filtering is currently not politically expedient
[22:23] <kim_bruning> (if ever)
[22:23] <zscout370> but as long as the quality is decent (that is up for debate), the licensing is good and legally able to host, we can have it
[22:23] <kim_bruning> anyway, night all!
[22:23] <harej> {Soap}: I remember Toby!
�08[22:23] <derp> ni ni my dears <3

[22:25] <zscout370> I sadly remember Toby also
[22:25] <GabrielF> I'm looking at the Commons user (Yestadae) who uploaded a bunch of our genitalia images and now I'm kind of curious what his process for taking them was
�06[22:26] * Aranda56 remembers Toby as well the good old days :(
[22:26] <lucasoutloud> Could someone take a look at ?  They keep taking off my G11 tag.
[22:26] <Tannerbaum> I'm sending emails to news stations about SOPA. I'd love if people could do the same to their news stations.
[22:27] <Aranda56> :o
[22:27] <GabrielF> Huh - it looks like a bunch of our vagina images came from Flickr
[22:27] <GabrielF> I wonder if people realized that they'd be on wikipedia when they posted them
[22:27] <kim_bruning> nini!
[22:28] <kim_bruning> Aranda56, you can't MFD historical stuff, that's hysterical :-P

[22:48] <zscout370> Aranda56 and harej, enjoy this blast from the past
[22:48] <harej> I have fond memories of the Toby debate.
[22:48] <harej> The guy who came up with Toby would later come up with WP:BEANS, an essay cited to this day!
[22:49] <harej> It's like he had one huge success.
[22:49] <Ironholds> aaaaaaaaaaaaaaahsleepdeprivation
[22:50] <harej> Ironholds: This is what happens when your employer is eight timezones away from you.
[22:50] <harej> ...Even though it's well past business hours on the West Coast.
[22:50] <harej> And we have some kinda Jesus holiday coming up so people aren't so inclined to doing work anyway.
[22:51] <Ironholds> harej: feedback coding waits for no man
[22:51] <Aranda56> one hit wonder :p
