[20:10] <gde33> Most borderline articles that are deleted could be demoted to draft status
[20:10] <ToAruShiroiNeko> you fancy Janeway that much?

[20:19] <SigmaWP> Alpha_Quadrant: Please fix coal balls
[20:19] <SigmaWP> Mainly the part where the idiot redlinked-userpage-person added his stuff
[20:19] <gde33> Give each edit in the archive a flag button, when clicked the bad edit is associated with the user. A bot then poops a daily template complaint on the admin notice board about todays highscores. Admins then award the prizes
[20:20] <barts1a> how do you poop a template?
[20:20] <gde33> A way to complaint about users without having to be an exelent liar.
[20:20] <gde33> make things more fair

[20:22] <gde33> let me remove everything you just did there and call you a crackpot on your way down
[20:23] <SigmaWP> Alpha_Quadrant: If you don't see the issue, you will never get a GA on your own
[20:23] <SigmaWP> Alpha_Quadrant: How about {{cn}} half the block of text
[20:23] <gde33> if you want to appear smart you tell people things they already know
[20:23] <SigmaWP> and {{jargon}} it too
[20:23] <gde33> thats the trick
[20:23] <barts1a> SigmaWP: The "me=ALWAYS_RIGHT, you=ALWAYS_WRONG" attitude gets you nowhere
[20:24] <barts1a> I know from experience
�03[20:24] * crackfu ( has left #wikipedia-en ("Leaving"�)

[20:24] <SigmaWP> gde33: FUCK NO
[20:24] <gde33> LOL

[20:25] <gde33> All credible scientists know wikipedia is pseudolibrarianism.
[20:25] <gde33> yeah common sense
[20:25] <gde33> but that is just a figure of speech nowadays ... sadly.
[20:25] <Alpha_Quadrant> SigmaWP: as I have said, I am not an article writer
[20:26] <gde33> oh one of those
[20:26] <gde33> lol
[20:28] <SigmaWP> But still
[20:28] <ToAruShiroiNeko> barts1a I thought it was the other way around
[20:28] <gde33> I had another cool idea, just now.
[20:28] <ToAruShiroiNeko> "me=ALWAYS_RIGHT, you=ALWAYS_LEFT"
[20:29] <gde33> when 2 editors have a dispute we replace their entire wikipedia with a single page where they can talk until they agree.

[20:46] <SigmaWP> Thehelpfulone: What do you mean, two protection templates I can use
[20:47] <Thehelpfulone> I mean if a page is semi protected from editing

[20:49] <gde33> In the trend of special treatment for precious long term editors I propose we fork all the user talk templates and word them properly for editors with us for considerable time. Treat them more gently and more deserving over other users.

[20:50] <Thehelpfulone> SigmaWP: I don't know if this is just my personal opinion, but I think admins prefer to use |small=yes)) in the pp-protected template as it's less obtrusive - if the users try to edit it, they see a message anyways

[22:09] <SigmaWP> Uh, last time I was asking whether I should revert or merge it up.
[22:09] <Sp33dyphil> SigmaWP: 24 hours' worth of writing ;)
[22:09] <SigmaWP> barts1a: You're digging yourself into a hole, and I suggest you stop.
[22:09] <Mommy> Lets just all be friends here <3
[22:09] <SigmaWP> Sp33dyphil: Isn't that the article I ran reflinks on yesterday?
[22:09] <Pilif12derp> SigmaWP, So, you're asking whether their content should be reverted, no?

[22:09] <SigmaWP> Nope, something else
[22:09] <Sp33dyphil> SigmaWP: nope, that was a diff article; this was is only 24 hours old
[22:10] <Mommy> It looked to me he was simply stating that someone else had edited the page, which is a rare occurence looking at its history
�03[22:10] * Aranda|zzz is now known as Aranda56

[22:10] <Sp33dyphil> SigmaWP: sure, tell me what to do first
[22:10] <Aranda56> ok stop with Coal ball, create a new article
[22:11] <Pilif12derp> Would you both just shut the fuck up.
[22:11] <Pilif12derp> Grow up.
[22:11] <Pilif12derp> Seriously.
[22:11] <Sp33dyphil> SigmaWP: are you biting barts1a's head off, or vice versa?
[22:11] <SigmaWP> Sp33dyphil:
[22:11] <Pilif12derp> How old are we? 12?
[22:11] <SigmaWP> Sp33dyphil: Our heads are in each others throats right now
[22:11] <barts1a> SigmaWP: {{subst:uw-agf3}}
[22:11] <harej> #wikipedia-en? Yes, I'd say the collective age is 12.
[22:11] <Pilif12derp> barts1a, Stop.
[22:11] <SigmaWP> barts1a: And I wonder how you got topic banned.
[22:11] <Pilif12derp> barts1a, SigmaWP, put each other on your ignore lists.
[22:11] <Sp33dyphil> what do you want me to do?
[22:12] <barts1a> Only if SigmaWP stops spamming the coal balls helpful addition
[22:12] <SigmaWP> barts1a: Coal balls are useful.
[22:12] <barts1a> and continuously violating WP:OWN
[22:12] <SigmaWP> barts1a: Fine
[22:12] <barts1a> and possibly WP:COI

[22:53] <SigmaWP> Aranda56: Australia won 31-0(1?) against American Samoa
[22:54] <foks> 32-0
[22:54] <darkfalls> It's American Samoa
[22:54] <LauraHale> We rock in Australia.

[22:54] <foks> Correction
[22:54] <tashir> what is the fundraising goal this year?
[22:54] <foks> it would be like the US basketball team playing Haiti's
[22:54] <Gfoley4> you guys know that American Samoa is changing time zones?
[22:54] <darkfalls> More like Spain vs Haiti.
[22:54] <foks> Haiti's football team is good
[22:55] <Gfoley4> It's right on the International Date Line
[22:55] <foks> Gfoley4, no, it's not
[22:55] <foks> Samoa is
[22:55] <foks> not American Samoa
[22:55] <Aranda56> it would be France football against Luxemburg :p
[22:55] <foks> Luxembourg have an okay team
[22:55] <Gfoley4> right
[22:55] <foks> Samoa ≠ American Samoa
[22:55] <Aranda56> or worst United States American football team against Australia :P
[22:55] <Gfoley4> right
[22:56] <foks> Landon Donovan!
[22:56] <darkfalls>
[22:56] <foks> And, uh, ... who else

[22:56] <darkfalls> awkward.
[22:57] <Guerillero> wow
[22:57] <darkfalls> Both are quite average players.
[22:57] <Aranda56> Americans will beat Australians in any sport but Cricket and Australian football :p

�03[23:13] * MJ94 (~mj94@wikimedia/mj94) has joined #wikipedia-en

[23:14] <Jeff_G> I suspect lots of Wikimedians are unemployed or underemployed. :(
[23:15] <tashir> but when ordinary editors have to stop because they're broke it doesn't cause more trouble for everyone else
[23:16] <Jeff_G> unless they happen to run Cluebot NG.

[23:20] <tashir> the corresponding is nowhere near as worrisome.
[23:20] <tashir> priority inversion
[23:21] <Thorncrag> paying admins is a horrible idea
[23:21] <Thorncrag> (no offense intended of course!)
[23:21] <tashir> why?
[23:21] <Thorncrag> you think we have enough accusations of COI of admins and stuff now…
[23:22] <darkfalls> It's obviously cos he isn't an admin
[23:22] <darkfalls> you don't see me complaining ;)
[23:22] <tashir> I've never seen an admin COI accusation. You mean involved admin actions?
[23:22] <Thorncrag> you can't have paid content-maintaners…. come on.
[23:22] <tashir> darkfalls: the plural of anecdote isn't data
[23:23] <darkfalls> huh.
[23:23] <Thorncrag> involved and COI are interchangeable terms, yes
[23:23] <tashir> there are admins paid by the foundation for part of their admin roles already, and I've never seen any COI accusations. Name one
[23:23] <Thorncrag> no they are not paid for their admin functions
[23:23] <darkfalls> umm no, those admins are officially employed.
[23:24] <tashir> the distinction being?
[23:24] <darkfalls> and are not paid for being an admin.
[23:24] <sonia> ^ this.
[23:24] <darkfalls> they have official employment with the foundation, as coordinators etc.
[23:24] <Thorncrag> every WMF employee is required to have a disclaimer that any contribution they make is not acting as an agent of the WMF
[23:24] <sonia> Thorncrag: more simply, it would make RfA an even huger mess
[23:24] <SigmaWP> tashir: Admins don't get paid
[23:24] <Thorncrag> if admins were paid, they would suddenly be agent officers of the foundation
[23:24] <SigmaWP> Yep
[23:25] <tashir> so?
[23:25] <SigmaWP> tashir: Enormous power.
[23:25] <darkfalls> Thorncrag: Every contribution they make on non-official accounts
[23:25] <SigmaWP> Almost representing the WMF.
�06[23:25] * tashir rolls eyes
[23:25] <darkfalls> It's the implementation that matters
[23:25] <Thorncrag> an employee of the foundation has a fiduciary interest of serving their employer, so contributing independently presents an inherant conflict of interest
[23:26] <darkfalls> many admins aren't even of legal age
[23:26] <SigmaWP> {{dubious}}
[23:26] <barts1a> SigmaWP: {{WP:DTTR}}
[23:26] <darkfalls> and are from different countries... have to deal with different employment laws/taxes etc.

[23:26] <darkfalls> not that a bit of cash isn't handy, but it ain't gonna happen.
[23:27] <tashir> you know, maybe you all are right. Maybe trying to reduce admin stress is just a stupid idea
�06[23:27] * barts1a is confused by SigmaWP's remark
[23:27] <SigmaWP> barts1a: WP:STICK
�06[23:27] * barts1a is still confused as to why it was made
[23:28] <darkfalls> admin stress is nonsensical. This is recreation, not a job.
[23:28] <Seddon> +1
[23:28] <tashir> well of course we don't know because the Foundation has as yet not raised a finger to survey admins
[23:29] <SigmaWP> Seddon: Hi
[23:29] <Thorncrag> tashir: No offense but I think you misunderstand what the purpose of the Foundation is
[23:29] <SigmaWP> Seddon: Someone other than me edited the coal balls :O
[23:29] <darkfalls> we have enough admins as it is, backlogs are decent atm.
[23:29] <Seddon> Hey SigmaWP
�06[23:29] * SigmaWP duct-tapes Pilif12p before he can make remarks
[23:29] <tashir> Thorncrag: to make decisions from a position of essentially no data?
[23:29] <SigmaWP> Seddon: And it's poorly cited material that was added
[23:29] <SigmaWP> Do you have access to the journals he cited, so I can clean up formatting and make it good and stuff?
�06[23:30] * barts1a sees SigmaWP still violently beating the horse
[23:30] <SigmaWP> Oh, forget it
[23:30] <barts1a> or rather- what is left of it
[23:30] <Seddon> SigmaWP: Ask me in 48 hours time :)
[23:30] <SigmaWP> barts1a: This is why you're banned from noticeboards, I would think
[23:30] <tashir> darkfalls: people adapt to more stressful conditions, and lots of backlogs have been offloaded and automated over the years. It's how well admins can support marginal noobs that really matters for quality and coverage
[23:30] <SigmaWP> barts1a: Let go, I still haven't reverted
[23:30] <barts1a> SigmaWP: YOU let go!
[23:31] <SigmaWP> barts1a: And in no way can you interpret "clean up formatting and make it good and stuff?" as article ownsership
[23:31] <SigmaWP> Unless you're dangerously deranged, and shouldn't be editing WP at all
[23:31] <darkfalls> tashir: You don't need to be an admin to support new editors
[23:31] <barts1a> Comments such as "Someone other than me edited the coal balls :O" SCREAM ownership from the hills

[23:32] <Thorncrag> I think to reduce admin stress, we need more admins, and getting more admins is difficult with the current RfA standards and processes the community uses
[23:32] <SigmaWP> Thorncrag: RfA standards must be high
[23:32] <barts1a> I did get a response from you in you telling me that I would get no response
[23:32] <SigmaWP> But people look for perfection nowadays
[23:32] <Thorncrag> SigmaWP: I don't disagree, but they must also be reasonable
[23:32] <tashir> yeah but as soon as they get in trouble enough to encounter an admin -- and the enthusiastic newbies do, sooner or later -- the amount of time and patience the admin has strongly influences the outcome
[23:32] <darkfalls> RfA standards are perfectly fine.
[23:32] <SigmaWP> darkfalls: Bah.
[23:33] <Thorncrag> all matters of opinion.
�15[23:33] * Addihockey10 (~chatzilla@wikimedia/Addihockey10) Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds�)

[23:33] <darkfalls> SigmaWP: Are you a sheep?

[23:35] <Eagles247> hi
[23:35] <darkfalls> tashir: The Board uses 1m in travel expenses etc every year.
[23:35] <SigmaWP> Thorncrag: IMO people are too scared
[23:35] <darkfalls> data/technical support issues are expensive
[23:36] <darkfalls> and other shit needs to be handled too.
[23:36] <Thorncrag> SigmaWP: now why would that be...
[23:36] <tashir> I've read the statements. I still say survey the admins because as soon as you do you'll find a substantial portion living in abject poverty to support the project

[23:38] <Thorncrag> Peter-C: I'm a little surprised, I thought as a general rule tourism wasn't allowed. Or maybe that's just no Americans?
