00:02 < koishi> aaaaaaaaaaaaa
00:05 < gry> ?
00:06 < dtm_> why can't i make a multi-column setup that starts alongside an infobox?
00:06 < dtm_> it waits until the bottom of the infobox in order to display my table

00:07 < gry> dtm_: link?
00:08 < gry> you could try putting infobox inside of a div with float:right;,but I think it does that already, so it's just a question of what the width of your content is
00:08 < dtm_> gry: well i'm still previewing it.  but i'll save it really fast if you're quick ;)
00:09 < dtm_> i'll do a test page
00:11 < dtm_> gry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Smuckola/sandbox
00:11 < dtm_> this is totally messed up.
00:12 -!- idiot [idiotsiboo@117.237.234.254] has joined #wikipedia-en
00:13 < gry> ok
00:13 < dtm_> ==Sports== table and the bus on one row.  Stadium bleaches on another row.   ===Football===
00:13 < dtm_> that's how i want it.
00:13 < dtm_> s/bleaches/bleachers/
00:13 < dtm_> gry: thanks
00:14 -!- VunKruz [~hhhh@108-206-230-100.lightspeed.irvnca.sbcglobal.net] has joined #wikipedia-en
00:14 < Jasper_Deng> koishi: you're Despastche on-wiki?
00:14 < Jasper_Deng> taking that to ANI wasn't a good idea, IMO.
00:14  * Jasper_Deng would have preferred to take it to DRN.
00:15 < dtm_> gry: it's like the infobox is magic.  oil and water.
00:15 < dtm_> gry: and this is the only table-based template i can find which even remotely works.  all the rest of them dont work at al.
00:15 < dtm_> all.
00:15 < gry> so you'd like table 25% width, 75% width photo, then the infobox (from left to right), correct?
00:15 < dtm_> i probably tried about four.  {{div col}}, {{columns}} etc
00:15 -!- idiot [idiotsiboo@117.237.234.254] has left #wikipedia-en []
00:15 < dtm_> gry: pretty muc
00:15 < dtm_> h
00:15 < dtm_> gry: i dont want to declare widths ideally.
00:16 < dtm_> i just want the table and the bus pic to be consecutive.
00:16 < dtm_> adjacent
00:16 < gry> check what I did, does it look right?
00:17 < gry> (reload the page)
00:17 -!- idiot [idiotsiboo@117.237.234.254] has joined #wikipedia-en
00:19 < dtm_> gry: so you had to put the image first?
00:19 < dtm_> that's somehow magic?

00:20 < dtm_> gry: and i'm going to add a {{clear}} before ===Football===

00:21 < dtm_> gry: i guess that'll do.  do you have any idea why i can't do the table and then the image?
00:21 < gry> {{clear}} may add too much white space, the infobox is way long
00:21 -!- OlEnglish [~me@wikipedia/OlEnglish] has quit [Quit: audi]
00:21 < dtm_> no it's regardless of the infobox
00:22 < gry> image has left float set: it means it floats at the left of the content that follows
00:22 -!- peachey|laptop__ is now known as p858snake
00:22 < dtm_> i mean it comes after the infobox anyway
00:22 < dtm_> oh!  the float.
00:22 < dtm_> i forgot about that parameter!

00:25 < gry> dtm_, I added {{clear}} after second image before ==Football==, see what I got: http://imgur.com/a/lTchf
00:25 < dtm_> gry: yeah that's what i did, thanks
00:25 < dtm_> i just published it.  thanks for reminding me of the left float.
00:26 < dtm_> formatting is crazy.  tables are CRAZY.
00:26 < dtm_> you tell me in what rational world there could possibly be six different templates just for tables.
00:26 < gry> heh 'published' :) that usually follows extensive peer review; you just 'saved' it rather :)
00:26 < dtm_> yeah.
00:26 < gry> it's not the worst part of wiki markup though, it's decent with those params and being customisable; the templates language is the real hell :)
00:27 < dtm_> :-o
00:28 -!- PinkAmpersand is now known as Pink|away
00:28 < gry> dtm_, I did formatting edits to the page, reload and look please, does it look better? (real page, not sandbox)
00:29 < gry> I just moved the football team photo a bit up so it floats at the left, assuming less white space is better

00:29 < dtm_> yeah and i added another {{clear}}
00:30 < dtm_> good idea

00:30 -!- Jasper_Deng is now known as Jasper_Deng_away
00:30 < dtm_> i just had gone out and taken all those pictures, so it looks a lot better now
00:31 < dtm_> i'd already redone the school's articles last week
00:31 < gry> yup, might want to chase a few third-party sources, I'm sure a good football team would have decent press coverage
00:31 < dtm_> no doubt.  i didn't even start on getting more references.
00:32 < dtm_> if i try to put the table first, and then the bus, i get weird artifact.s
00:36 < koishi> jasper_deng: what's the difference? i really don't know
00:36 < koishi> i just saw that drn "wasn't about user conduct" and ran for it

01:16 < gry> I can translate to a foreign language, but it wouldn't be Spanish, would that be desirable? what motivates your language choice?
01:20 < dtm_> gry: because the subject is cuban
01:21 < gry> hrm
01:21 < dtm_> maybe mareklug would translate [[Mitch Markovich]] to Polish.  Mitch spent I think a few years in Poland.
01:21 < dtm_> and he did a lot for Japan
01:22 < dtm_> but [[Walfredo Reyes, Jr.]] and his family are Cuban and Puerto Rican
01:22 < dtm_> also, Mitch is from Chicago ;)
01:24 < dtm_> gry: do you cover any of those langauges
01:24 < dtm_> languages?
01:25 < gry> nope but I'll look into translating them in my free time anyway
01:26 < dtm_> gry: well, that's super nice of ya.  what languages do you know?
01:26 < gry> thanks for the barnstar at my talk page by the way, I moved it out to a separate barnstars page, I don't think the archiving bot likes to nuke them so I'll start collecting instead
01:26 < gry> just English and a little bit of Russian at the moment
01:26 < dtm_> oh.

02:25 < dtm_> TeeTylerToe: are you talking about requests for proposals on the village pump?  or reversed field pinch?
02:26 < TeeTylerToe> requests for permissions
02:26 < tommorris> I used to do 'em. I should do more.
02:27 < YuviPanda> dtm_: do take a look at that userspace link when you are free :)
02:27 < YuviPanda> thanks
02:27 < YuviPanda> !
02:27 < dtm_> tommorris: you should hook a CVU brotha up with some rollback.
02:28 < tommorris> dtm_: you don't have rollback?
02:28 < TeeTylerToe> does that meet notability YuviPanda?
02:28 < YuviPanda> the references listed are all reliable, IIRC
02:28 < TeeTylerToe> Having refereces doesn't mean it's notable does it?
02:29 < tommorris> no, but it is fairly indicative ;)
02:29 < dtm_> YuviPanda: based on that content, i'm gonna say it's not notable, because though it may be notable today, wikinotability is permanent.
02:30 < tommorris> dtm_: check yer user talk
02:30 < YuviPanda> the content could use a bit of impreovement, I agree.
02:30 < dtm_> YuviPanda: it's a startup.  it's not the biggest startup in history, it has no worldwide or nationwide groundbreaking achievement, etc
02:30 < TeeTylerToe> and because arguing about notability is one of those things where it seems like the work is impactful
02:30 < YuviPanda> I suppose I'll just ask them to pull it through AfC anyway.

02:31 < dtm_> tommorris: what else ya got?  ;)
02:32 < tommorris> dtm_: well, you'll have to apply for the others. I'm not a [[WP:HATSHOP]].
02:32 < YuviPanda> TeeTylerToe: dtm_ is there a policy on Notability for companies written up somewhere?
02:32 < dtm_> tommorris: lol!!!
02:32 < YuviPanda> that I can point the people involved in to?
02:32 < tommorris> YuviPanda: [[WP:ORG]]
02:32 < dtm_> YuviPanda: yeah.  search google or wikipedia
02:32 < YuviPanda> thanks tommorris
02:32 < TeeTylerToe> like most wiki policy/blathering it's probably pretty vague bordering on useless
02:33 < tommorris> I'd say if the Exotel article were to go up for deletion, it'd probably be kept
02:33 < dtm_> tommorris: you think so?  how?
02:33 < YuviPanda> I think so too. Someone poked me with a similar page a while back, which was also kept
02:33 < tommorris> meets GNG
02:34 < dtm_> tommorris: yeah how?
02:34 < tommorris> well, there's a few sources there that are reliable and provide in-depth coverage of the company
02:34 -!- Firefly67 [~Firefly67@unaffiliated/firefly67] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
02:34 < dtm_> tommorris: the question is of notability
02:34 < dtm_> which is nationally significant, and permanent
02:35 < TeeTylerToe> When evaluating the notability of organizations or products, please consider whether they have had any significant or demonstrable effects on culture, society, entertainment, athletics, economies, history, literature, science, or education.
02:35 < tommorris> well, if something meets the GNG, it is notable
02:35 < dtm_> tommorris: that's what i just asked!
02:35 < dtm_> how are you saying that it does so?
02:35 < dtm_> ^_^
02:35 < YuviPanda> well
02:35 < YuviPanda> 'A company, corporation, organization, school, team, religion, group, product, or service is notable if it has been the subject of significant coverage in secondary sources. Such sources must be reliable, and independent of the subject. '
02:35 < YuviPanda> is from WP:ORG
02:35 < tommorris> yes, but ORG doesn't override GNG
02:36  * YuviPanda goes to read GNG
02:36 < tommorris> specific notability guidelines haven't overriden the GNG for a while
02:36 < YuviPanda> sorry, I'm new to this
02:36 < dtm_> wow that'd cover just about anything
02:36 < tommorris> "If a topic has received significant coverage in reliable sources that are independent of the subject, it is presumed to satisfy the inclusion criteria for a stand-alone article or stand-alone list."
02:36 < tommorris> there are three independent reliable sources that provide significant coverage of the article
02:36 < tommorris> ergo, it satisfies GNG
02:36 < tommorris> just calling it like I see it. ;)
02:36 < dtm_> tommorris: yeah just wondering
02:37 < YuviPanda> okay, i'm going to help add inline refs appropriately
02:37  * YuviPanda goes to read up on syntax
02:37 < dtm_> tommorris: is that ditto for BLP?
02:37 < dtm_> oh it's GNG.  wheee.
02:37 < dtm_> and it's late.
02:37 < YuviPanda> what's your timezone, dtm_?
02:37 < YuviPanda> i see you up all the time!
02:38 < dtm_> central
02:38 < kondi> hehe
02:39 < tommorris> dtm_: the specific notability guidelines for people don't override the GNG, but BLP1E does. (and, no, I can't justify why that is, it's just my observation from participating and closing lots of deletion discussions)
02:39 < dtm_> "While consensus may change, notability once established and demonstrated is permanent."
02:39 < dtm_> tommorris: hm.
02:40 < dtm_> tommorris: the criteria on musicians is fairly strict
02:40 < tommorris> yep, because notability is based primarily on sources rather than on some moralistic judgment on a person's worth
02:40 < dtm_> and it's interesting that they say that the musician needs to be an authority in their city.  so i disqualified a two-album-published guy in San Diego, but i could qualify a guy with a couple of itunes singles in Salina, KS
02:41 < dtm_> the guy in San Diego was merely nominated for some metro-wide music award festivals but didn't win!  Salina doens't even have a music award!
02:41 < dtm_> ^_^
02:42 < dtm_> but hey it comes down to common sense and community standards, doesn't it
02:43 < TeeTylerToe> the zdnet link is a primary source, and the reuters is a press release
02:44 < dtm_> YuviPanda: well, seeing how the GNG are nearly worthlessly vague, i guess you have a winner ;)
02:44 < dtm_> the warm fuzzy blanket of inclusion
02:44 < TeeTylerToe> Hey!  Pretty much ALL notability is worthlessly vague!
02:44 < YuviPanda> hehe
02:44 < dtm_> lol.
02:45 < YuviPanda> should I use <ref> or {{cite web}}?

02:45 < YuviPanda> <ref> I think?
02:45 < dtm_> YuviPanda: yes
02:45 < YuviPanda> okay, using <ref>
02:45 < dtm_> YuviPanda: <ref name="foo and such">{{cite web}}</ref>
02:45 < YuviPanda> oh, both?
02:45 < TeeTylerToe> but the zdnet and reuters links don't meet GNG, dunno about the others

02:46 < dtm_> as is appropriate
02:46 < YuviPanda> i'm still reading through {{cite web}}
02:46 < YuviPanda> would be the first time I've done anything that's not just minor corrections
02:46 < dtm_> YuviPanda: well done
02:46 < dtm_> YuviPanda: you'll never be the same.  ruined for life <3  JOIIIIIN UUUUUS
02:46 < TeeTylerToe> it's easy
02:46 < YuviPanda> hehe :P
02:46 < dtm_> now you'll spit on the average article's wikitext
02:46 < tommorris> YuviPanda: you can just use the citation popup thingy. works reasonably well
02:46 < dtm_> and feel so useful
02:47 < YuviPanda> oh?
02:47 < YuviPanda> where is that?
02:47  * YuviPanda looks
02:47 < YuviPanda> oh
02:47 < dtm_> yeah i completely gave up on that thing's limitations
02:47 < YuviPanda> in the toolbar, next to 'Help'?
02:47 < tommorris> YuviPanda: in the formatting bar, click "Cite", then there's a drop down with four options - cite news, web, book and journal
02:47 < TeeTylerToe> there are at least a couple different citation helper things, can't make anything simple
02:47 < tommorris> it does the job reasonably well
02:47 < dtm_> TeeTylerToe: yeah i handily gave up on them all
02:47 < dtm_> painstakingly and longsufferingly
02:50 < YuviPanda> tommorris: oh, it is pretty nice!
02:50 < dtm_> hehe i just copyedited the punctuation on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Notability#Notability_is_not_temporary   <3
02:51 < tommorris> YuviPanda: there's another one which a lot of people use, but the JS loading is disruptive so I avoid it
02:51 < dtm_> yeah i've disabled some tools due to disruptive javascript
02:51 < dtm_> bigtime
02:51 < dtm_> it sucks to even have to troubleshoot them
02:51 < dtm_> to find the offenders.
02:51 < TeeTylerToe> In the top bar there's the book icon which helps cite, then there's the >cite that helps cite, but wait...  there's more, on the bottom there's Cite your sources: <ref></ref>,
02:51 < dtm_> in the sprawling patchwork that is wikipedia
02:52 < YuviPanda> dtm_: should the refs be inserted before the full stop or after?
02:52 < dtm_> YuviPanda: after punctuation
02:52 < dtm_> YuviPanda: it's a generally good idea to look at a known-good article too, by comparison
02:52 < dtm_> YuviPanda: and you'll look upon the wiki for the first time, with your new vampire eyes
02:53 < YuviPanda> :D
02:53 < YuviPanda> I could see that happening already yeah
02:53 < dtm_> r u i n e d
02:53 < TeeTylerToe> then there's the cite help under >help on the top bar as well
02:53 < YuviPanda> dtm_: to be fair, I've done little bits of tech stuff on the desktop site before, so already that sortof happens
02:54 < YuviPanda> and it's a good idea to insert multiple references too I guess
02:54 < YuviPanda> for some thing at least
02:54 < dtm_> tommorris: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Notability#Notability_is_not_temporary   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:What_notability_is_not
02:54 < dtm_> tommorris: wat.  lol.
02:54 < TeeTylerToe> choose template would be a lot more helpful than just template
02:54 < dtm_> "Notability is not temporary"  "Notability is not permanent"
02:55 < dtm_> that's cute.
02:55 < tommorris> dtm_: essays do not trump guidelines. ;)
02:56 < dtm_> :-o
02:56 < dtm_> "This is not to be confused with Notability is not temporary."  what?  *how*?
02:56 < dtm_> what does that even mean?
02:56 < tzatziki> ask whomever wrote it

03:04 < YuviPanda> kondi: :D
03:04 < dtm_> tommorris: so basically what we're saying is that a BLP is notable for having several secondary RSes, unless it is about a crime or a one-time event?
03:05 < dtm_> tommorris: even if the result is an article that does not demonstrate that it'll ever grow?
03:05 < tommorris> dtm_: BLP1E is slightly broader than that. we've deleted articles before on "genius child mathematicians" who the press occassionally dig out.
03:05 < tommorris> articles don't have to grow
03:06 < dtm_> okay i wrote a BLP draft that i wasn't sure on, and i'd appreciate review.
03:06 < tommorris> if you come to Wikipedia and get a compact little article that tells you everything you need to know, and it is well-referenced, I'm satisfied
03:07 < dtm_> tommorris: even if it can never go beyond a very short C, huh?  ok
03:07 < tommorris> I've written articles exactly like that
03:07 < dtm_> tommorris: when you say you're satisfied, do you mean that wikipedia's consensus on guidelines are satisfieD?
03:07 < TeeTylerToe> some articles on military vehicles can be like 200Kb and not have more than a sentence on the vehicle itself
03:08 < dtm_> TeeTylerToe: wut?  how's that
03:08 -!- Zed`_ [~Zed@sh.savantnet.com] has joined #wikipedia-en
03:08 < tommorris> dtm_: if there's an article on an obscure novelist and there's only three reliable sources, and we write the best damn article you could on the basis of those reliable sources, it might only be 300 words long. that's okay.
03:08 < TeeTylerToe> Like the blackhawk article.  There are 5+ different subarticles as well totalling probably closer to 1,000kb and it only had a single sentence on the helicopter itself
03:09 < TeeTylerToe> If you want to know what pacific island nations have blackhawks, and how many, it's the right article.  If you want to know anything about the helicopter...
03:10 < dtm_> if someone would like to give feedback on this, i'd appreciate it.  other than the couple of yet-unused extra references.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Smuckola/Dana_Beth_Ardi

03:17 < dtm_> tommorris: what!  is that a thing?
03:17 < TeeTylerToe> Rs is currency?
03:17 < YuviPanda> dtm_: hmm, so that's the way it is reported in
03:17 < YuviPanda> TeeTylerToe: yes, INR
03:17 < YuviPanda> should I convert to 'millions' and USD?
03:17 < YuviPanda> or is there a template?
03:18 < YuviPanda> crore would be https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crore
03:18 < tommorris> dtm_: read it. it's written with tongue firmly in cheek
03:18 < dtm_> YuviPanda: yeah there's a template.  there's {{US$}} i think, and maybe others, but you should at least wikilink, explain, and convert it
03:18 < YuviPanda> dtm_: so, Rs. 1 Crore (<equivalent USD>)?
03:18 < dtm_> YuviPanda: coz especially in the english wiki, there's no expectation that a person knows what that means
03:18 < YuviPanda> without designation?
03:18 < dtm_> YuviPanda: yeah i guess
03:18 < YuviPanda> ok
03:18 < YuviPanda> doing it
03:19 < dtm_> and wikilink to [[crore]] i guess.  i've never heard that word in my life.
03:19 < dtm_> and how did Shivakumar get to be known by one word?
03:19 < YuviPanda> that's his name
03:19 < dtm_> seriously?
03:19 < YuviPanda> a lot of us have just one name, y'know :)
03:19 < dtm_> what.
03:20 < YuviPanda> my dad's name is simply 'Thangamani' for example
03:20 < dtm_> also, what.
03:20 < YuviPanda> single names are common
03:20 < YuviPanda> (India)
03:20 < dtm_> wtf, over.
03:20 < YuviPanda> we have initials though
03:20 < YuviPanda> so he is 'Thangamani <initial>"
03:21 < dtm_> YuviPanda: you should add this to each <ref> -->  accessdate=June 3, 2013
03:21 < YuviPanda> oh
03:21 < YuviPanda> ok
03:21 < YuviPanda> ah, okay
03:21 < dtm_> YuviPanda: but i just made an edit.
03:21 < dtm_> minorly.
03:21 < foks> I have an indian friend with lots of names, but he'll only answer to one of them
03:21 < dtm_> so, carry on.
03:21 < YuviPanda> dtm_: okay, so I'll wikilink 'Rs.'
03:21 < dtm_> foks: lolwut
03:21 < foks> and shorten the others to MC
03:21 < YuviPanda> oh yeah
03:22 < YuviPanda> see for example
03:22 < YuviPanda> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thisara_Perera
03:22 < dtm_> YuviPanda: i guess you need a period after "G"
03:22 < YuviPanda> this guy
03:22 < YuviPanda> he's only known as 'Thisara Perera' and most people ignore the rest of the names
03:22 < dtm_> YuviPanda: {{reflist | 2 }}
03:22 < dtm_> if you like
03:22 < YuviPanda> it's not long enough for that is it
03:23 < dtm_> YuviPanda: use {{Official website|http://exotel.in/}}
03:23 < YuviPanda> where?
03:23 < YuviPanda> external link?
03:23 < YuviPanda> or?
03:23 < dtm_> length is irrelevant; it'll go into two columns if you want
03:23 < dtm_> remove ==external link==
03:23 < dtm_> it's redundant
03:23 < dtm_> tommorris: amirite
03:23 < dtm_> tommorris: the {{official website}} in the infobox is redundant to ==External links==, right?
03:23 < dtm_> inherently?
03:24 < tommorris> No, include both
03:24 -!- jbroome_ is now known as jbroome
03:24 < dtm_> personally i dont think so.  just asking about policy.
03:24 < dtm_> coz it's about readability
03:24 < dtm_> put it where it's expected and such
03:24 < tommorris> things aren't redundant to what's in the infobox. the infobox is just a place to put that stuff in an infoboxxy way ;)
03:24 < dtm_> YuviPanda: and i guess you're in business
03:24 < dtm_> tommorris: kthx
03:25 < YuviPanda> fixing the crore issue
03:25 < dtm_> tommorris: so you say Dana Beth Ardi is a no-go as it stands?
03:25 < dtm_> tommorris: given that article draft, how many secondary RSes would you want?
03:25 < tommorris> dtm_: "multiple". 2 or 3 is the minimum really
03:26 < dtm_> tommorris: this is a quasi-RS, right? http://www.refresher.com/addebrand.html
03:26 < dtm_> tommorris: that's one which i had referenced but not yet cited or synthesized.
03:26 < dtm_> they're talking about her.
03:26 < tommorris> dunno. that seems... worth discussing on RSN
03:26 < dtm_> and explaining her and such

03:28 < dtm_> like 1-5 million dollars
03:28 < dtm_> just something that gives a non-nothingness of a clue
03:28 < YuviPanda> it was around 500, 000 USD when the deal was done
03:28 < dtm_> i mean a person shouldn't be expected to even know that that is *money*.
03:28 < YuviPanda> I wikilinked first mention of Rs and Crore
03:28 < dtm_> that's like wtf to the max
03:28 < YuviPanda> hehe
03:29 < dtm_> after having had a person with one freaking name
03:29 < YuviPanda> hehe
03:29 < dtm_> that's where you're thinkin "okay they're making ALL OF THIS UP."
03:29 < YuviPanda> so it was 500,000 USD
03:29 < YuviPanda> at that time
03:29 < YuviPanda> it is reported at http://techcircle.vccircle.com/2012/08/31/techcircle-saas-forum-2012-announces-top-10-saas-startups-in-india/
03:29 < dtm_> ok
03:29 < YuviPanda> can that be considered a reference for it?
03:29 < YuviPanda> and shall I include the 500,000 USD number with that ref?
03:29 < dtm_> if that's what it says and it's correct yes
03:30 < dtm_> well done
03:30 < YuviPanda> it says 'Exotel secured Rs 2.5 crore ($0.5 million) from Mumbai Angels and Blume Ventures'
03:30 < YuviPanda> so
03:30 < YuviPanda> 0.5 million
03:30 < dtm_> tommorris: dude seriously i've been grilled to oblivion and back by peopole in this channel, over drafts that i've written which were twice as substantial as what YuviPanda is writing lol

03:31 < YuviPanda> ah
03:32 < YuviPanda> got it
03:32 < dtm_> i mean to cite them a second time
03:32 < YuviPanda> doing
03:32 < dtm_> this is your abstraction between a reference and its inline citation

07:33 < ToAruShiroiNeko> thats n ot much of a strategy
07:33 < ToAruShiroiNeko> defacements require actual hacking
07:33 < Soapy> in America under Obama’s system you pay 10% of your income to get a crappy insurance where youre staffed by people who say things like “you realize this is catastrophic-only coverage, right? this is meant for people who have no health problems and dont actually need to go to the hospital ever”
07:33 < ToAruShiroiNeko> annoymous prefers high profile DDoSes since the media cant tell the difference
07:33 < Qcoder00> True, but if you put an abuse image up , you can than get the site blocked officialy...
07:34 < Qcoder00> ;)
07:34 < Soapy> and then your bill ends up being almost as high as that for someone with no insurance, which is the point of why there has to be a fine for not buying insurance now
07:34 < Qcoder00> Because an 'abuse image' could be considered illegal content.
07:34 < ToAruShiroiNeko> I dont like defacements to be honest
07:34 < ToAruShiroiNeko> you victimise people using the service and effectively censor away information available on the website
07:34 < Soapy> real health insurance will cost somewhere around 30% of the income for the poor
07:35 < Qcoder00> At least in the US people do recover the cost of negligence realted accidents
07:35 < ToAruShiroiNeko> Soapy in the US 98% of healthcare related costs end up in someones pockets
07:35 < ToAruShiroiNeko> not toctors not patients
07:35 < Qcoder00> In the UK, I've rarely heard of examples of the NHS recovring the costs of treating neglligence by industry
07:36 < ToAruShiroiNeko> of course not
07:36 < ToAruShiroiNeko> its actually regulated

14:38 < Cyberpower678> It migrated to labs.

14:42 < Prodego> ridiculous*

14:42 < Cyberpower678> Prodego, what?
14:43 < Cyberpower678> ToAruShiroiNeko, yes.  Toolserver is getting decommissioned.
14:43 < Prodego> Cyberpower678: you have to opt in to have X!'s edit counter give you detailed results
14:43 < Cyberpower678> Prodego, yes?
14:43 < ToAruShiroiNeko> Isarra dearie :)
14:43 < Prodego> Cyberpower678: this is because of some german law
14:43 < Cyberpower678> ^^
14:43 < ToAruShiroiNeko> german privacy law
14:43 < Prodego> if the tool is no longer on a wikimedia de server
14:43 < ToAruShiroiNeko> then fuck german privacy laws
14:43 < Prodego> then that opt in no longer has to exist, which would be very nice
14:44 < ToAruShiroiNeko> Prodego ya
14:44 < Cyberpower678> There's no problem with having an optin.
14:44 < ToAruShiroiNeko> its on the wikimedia cluster?
14:44 < ToAruShiroiNeko> where does it geo locates?
14:44 < ToAruShiroiNeko> Cyberpower678 I do have a problem
14:44 < Prodego> Cyberpower678: sure there is, that means I can't get detailed results for the editors I'm looking up
14:44 < shimgray> um. while it may be required by German law, it's also a good idea
14:44 < ToAruShiroiNeko> it means we need consent of sockpuppets to analyse their edits
14:44 < Prodego> shimgray: no, it really isn't.
14:44 < ToAruShiroiNeko> shimgray it REALLY isnt
14:45 < Prodego> All the information is already public
14:45 < Cyberpower678> Prodego, what if that editor doesn't want you to see detailed results?
14:45 < ToAruShiroiNeko> public data by very definition is public
14:45 < Cyberpower678> The opt-in isn't going to be removed.
14:45 < ToAruShiroiNeko> Cyberpower678 then he or she shouldnt make edits
14:45 < ToAruShiroiNeko> I can see their history
14:45 < Prodego> so originially there was no opt in
14:45 < shimgray> yes, yes it is. and "all this information is public therefore mashing it all up and coming to conclusions is entirely unproblematic" is a very popular fallacy
14:45 < ToAruShiroiNeko> shimgray the act of opt in takes too much effort
14:46 < Prodego> shimgray: if it is public information I should be able to do whatever I want with it
14:46 < ToAruShiroiNeko> now you could have an opt out if you like
14:46 < ToAruShiroiNeko> Prodego almost anything,
14:46 < shimgray> Prodego, you want to analyse that privately with public info? be my guest. but there are plenty of people who don't like it being done with graphs on a public server
14:46 < ToAruShiroiNeko> its still illegal to tattoo that information on a baby\
14:46 < Prodego> shimgray: sure, but that it their problem
14:46 < ToAruShiroiNeko> I concur with Prodego

15:02 -!- bobrayner [4e978dc4@wikipedia/bobrayner] has joined #wikipedia-en
15:02 < shimgray> also, people's basic understanding of privacy is still very pre-digital. we are used to concepts of public information and private information. the sheer volume of what you can infer from the former is not something we're used to yet
15:03 -!- SuicidalZerg [~nnscript@wikipedia/The-Thing-That-Should-Not-Be] has joined #wikipedia-en
15:03 < shimgray> so, things that are completely public (eg edit activity) often get people very spooked when analysed in detail - because the inferred information is not something they conceptualised as public
15:04 < shimgray> fwiw, I had no idea until this point that ts had put that in for any legal reasons (although I can certainly believe it is required) - I'd assumed it was there because of that very reaction

15:05 < Prodego> So you would respect to the intention of the editors to not reveal particular information
15:05 < Swob> we're still talking about the edit counter, right?
15:05 < Prodego> though in practice their aggregate small disclosures may have revealed it

15:07 < shimgray> I would say that us analysing and displaying this sort of information on our users without their consent feels a bit skeevy to me
15:07 < shimgray> their consent = opt-in, and we're great
15:08 < shimgray> sure, the data is public, you can roll the analysis yourself if you want
15:08 < shimgray> but publishing it is a bit different
15:08 -!- JustBerry [~chatzilla@unaffiliated/justberry] has joined #wikipedia-en
15:08 < Swob> we did it for years
15:09 < Firefly67> shimgray, Prodego: Just came in at the right time to listen in on your conversation. I agree that "the inferred information is not something they conceptualised as public" and hence they freak out.
15:10 < shimgray> this isn't just ts, & indeed not even a WP thing
15:11 < ToAruShiroiNeko> opt-ins are disruptive
15:11 < ToAruShiroiNeko> 1 confirmed fatality at hatay provice due to the protests
15:11 < shimgray> we're having to reassess a lot of how we construe privacy; aggregating small details can be unexpectedly powerful and we just don't know how to handle that.
15:11 < Prodego> I think that most of the american editors, myself included, think that it is too much of an infringement on the rights of those who rightfully have access to this data to restrict their ability to analyze it for that reason
15:12 < Prodego> given that all the data was released willingly
15:12 < ToAruShiroiNeko> nothing prevents us to create a breakaway site

15:13 -!- dungodung is now known as dungodung|away
15:14 < shimgray> Prodego, ah, but then you get into thorny issues around "rightfully have access to this data". you don't have a positive right to access it, you can't take someone to court for not giving it to you, no?
15:15 < IDoH> I would've said hi earlier, but there was someone in en-help who needed...help.
15:15 < shimgray> & released willingly... well, I dunno about you, but I edited Wikipedia. I didn't tick a box saying "please triangulate my commute times". ;-)
15:15 < Prodego> shimgray: more formally I could say have 'freely been given access to the data by its owner'
15:15 < shimgray> I know these are edge cases, but you're packing a lot of implication into being given access to the data
15:15 < shimgray> it's not given, it's just sort of hanging there
15:15 -!- egallager [18da2e94@gateway/web/freenode/ip.24.218.46.148] has left #wikipedia-en []
15:16 < Prodego> shimgray: no one reads the TOS anyway, so even if it did say that
15:16 < shimgray> in many ways, your "freely given" statement implies consent - but we're discussing how to give or withold consent, so that doesn't mesh
15:17 < Prodego> shimgray: I believe by making an edit you do consent to your content being released, and the time and date that you made the edit you don't even own anyway, that information comes from the WMF
15:17 -!- juliancolton [~chatzilla@wikimedia/Juliancolton] has joined #wikipedia-en
15:18 -!- Falcorian [~Falcorian@wikipedia/Falcorian] has joined #wikipedia-en
15:19 < Prodego> Do you have any rights over the information "User:x made an edit at this time"
15:19 < shimgray> but does it? if it did, we wouldn't need the opt-in; WMF could give consent on their behalf
15:19 < shimgray> again, this gets into conceptual theories of data privacy and data ownership where the US takes a different legal tack to many other places
15:19 < Prodego> shimgray: well the opt in may be due to an abundance of caution in this particular case
15:19 < Ironholds> shimgray: your third clause is generalisable
15:20 < shimgray> but I will say this: our community has shown, many times, that it is strongly and emphatically protective of its own privacy. I think were we to cast this open to a wider consultation, opt-in for this sort of community monitoring tool would be supported
15:21 < shimgray> (presenting it as the status quo ante may skew that, of course!)
15:21 < TOS> Prodego Nobody reads me?
15:21  * TOS is hurt
15:21 < shimgray> tos;dr
15:21 < Prodego> TOS: no, you should just delete all your edits
15:21  * TOS goes ans cries in a corner
15:21 < Prodego> shimgray: I'm not sure
15:22 < Prodego> a vote on such things will probably never happen, and somewhat importantly doesn't need to since such tools do exist completely independantly of the WMF
15:22 < Prodego> independently*, mmm
15:23 < shimgray> Prodego, I should stress I'm not saying such tools shouldn't exist or that people should be able to hide the data - we can go down very futile rabbit holes that way, and public data is public
15:23 < shimgray> it's us publishing (or endorsing the publication) of the automated analysis that I'm uncomfortable with. technically it's the same thing, but there's big conceptual differences.
15:24 < shimgray> we're not in the business of profiling or reporting on our users beyond that needed to technically operate the site (ie datestamped logs and contribs)

16:20 < koishi> hm
16:20 < TeeTylerToe> It becomes religious, or political
16:20 < koishi> we should probably move the ps3 article to "PS3"; i mean that's what everyone uses right?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
16:20 < TeeTylerToe> the xbox is better, the playstation is better, windows is better, mac is better, linux is better

16:20 < koishi> but it seems too horrifying
16:21 < TeeTylerToe> A mob from say the rail project who have some religious conviction about the magical properties of steam engines will sink into an article trying to make it say that steam is the best and only form of locomotion

16:22 < TeeTylerToe> Steam fanatics are actually a thing?
16:23 < koishi> teetylertoe: the problem is that this is just naming. naming! that's all. but this guy worships "reliable sources" so much that apparently names can only come from people who have zero connection to them.

19:22 < mareklug> dtm_ the sick IIci behaves strangely.  With the new known drive it would system bomb almost immediately after Welcome to the Macinotsh screen.  That's with onboard video.  I replaced it with an Apple video card and now it does not system bomb, but it turns off video after a while.. that's with it's old drive.  And with the new memory installed and old removed.  and of course new PRAM battery.  So I think it is likely a power supply issue,
19:22 < mareklug>  because it is being flakey.  And when I power it down and then try to power it up, the keyboard light and its own power lights flicker dimmy.  When I unplug the power cable and replug it, it restarts.  And there is no chime, but that could be because the chime is being too soft to hear.  So my next step is to pull the power supply from the IIcx.

20:40 < dtm_> IDoH: well i've seen a couple of different things, like voice and motion
20:40 < dtm_> there's an iOS app i think, which can unlock your lock screen by shaking just the right way.  you record your shake.  lol
20:40 < dtm_> jumpin on one foot
20:40 < IDoH> dtm_: I have a very mild physical disability that would make that not work.
20:41 < dtm_> IDoH: ok.  you can't talk?
20:41 < dtm_> on Mac OS 9, i'd say "my voice is my password" ;)
20:41 < CensoredBiscuit> IDoH: me too
20:41 < IDoH> IDoH: No, but voice recognition is horrid for me.
20:41 < IDoH> dtm_ ^
20:41 < dtm_> IDoH: it doesn't have to interpret what you're saying, though
20:41 < dtm_> you just have to say it the same way
20:41 < dtm_> i mean with the same voice
20:41 < CensoredBiscuit> wait IDoH I think we've had this conversation before
20:42 < dtm_> and then you could fall back on to passwords.
20:42 < dtm_> or, you can authenticate based on trusting the physical possession of the device itself.
20:42 < dtm_> i mean these can all be options
20:42 < dtm_> falling back potentially on passwords.
20:42 < dtm_> but a person can enable or disable any of those
20:43 -!- JKL|Away is now known as JKL1234-
20:43 < IDoH> dtm_: Er, I'm not 100% sure if that will work for me, still, even though I speak very clearly, clearly enough that a stranger with decent hearing and English ability can understand 99% of what I'm saying. I'd just use the passwords.
20:43 < dtm_> IDoH: ok well i dont know why you'd say that .. but.. it could work!
20:43 < IDoH> Maaaybe.
20:43 < dtm_> it knows the characteristics of your voice, see.  not interpreting it.
20:44 < dtm_> it doesn't know what you're saying.
20:44 < dtm_> it just knows this is your voice
20:44 < IDoH> Oh, okay, it *might* work, then.
20:44 < dtm_> i mean it might be the timing and inflection and various signature features
20:44 < dtm_> of each micro aspect
20:45 < IDoH> Cool.
20:45 < dtm_> so you have 1) physical possession of your device and 2) your voice
20:45 < IDoH> Ah
20:45 < dtm_> and tie it to just that device
20:45 < dtm_> so that's pretty decent
20:45 < dtm_> so i mean.  someone like facebook or google or wikimedia could tie your phone to a web site
20:46 < dtm_> so you sit down at your desktop system and you mess with your phone to log in, and you start workin on wikipedia on your desktop.
20:46 < dtm_> as an auth combo
20:47 < dtm_> kerblammoooo
20:47 < dtm_> i bet it'd work even for horses.
20:47 < IDoH> Ha ha ha!
20:48 < dtm_> you could playback the same clip from Spirit: Stallion of the Cimmaron

21:48 < Koi> that is funny.
21:48 < dtm_> guys, can anyone glance at this http://www.forbes.com/sites/stevedenning/2011/02/11/why-the-revolution-has-been-tweeted-the-dragonfly-effect/ and tell me whether it's actually an official article of Forbes?  i know that there are weblogs and various other less-than-officially-editorially-overseen subsections of major RSes, and i just wanted to ensure that this is particular article is, in fact an RS
21:48 < dtm_> Koi: true.  true.
21:49 < dtm_> at this particular juncture, the OTRS flowchart would direct Jayron32 to "shower them in wikilove"
21:49 < Koi> dtm_: looks like a blog section.
21:49 < dtm_> Koi: how do we know that?
21:49 < dtm_> the author is just called "Contributor"
21:49 < Koi> dtm_: /sites/stevedenning for one.
21:50 < Koi> that means it's a subsite of forbes.
21:50 < dtm_> ok.
21:50 < D_> Well, their top story on their front page also leads to a /sites/ URL
21:50 < dtm_> weird.
21:50 < dtm_> :-o
21:50 < Koi> really?
21:50 < Koi> did they change that?
21:50 < D_> but that author is actually labeled "Forbes Staff"
21:50 < dtm_> sites!  SITES, EVERYWHERE
21:50 < dtm_> it's a good interview.
21:50 < Koi> a while back they used to only use /sites/ for their individual stiff
21:50 < Koi> INTERVIEW NOT INDEPENDENT. KOI DISAPPROVE.
21:51 < dtm_> is it possible that an RS can have a subsection which is categorically not an RS?  like a weblog subsection?
21:51 < D_> Maybe they're trying to be cloudsocial, I dunno
21:51 < dtm_> D_: so are we calling this url an RS?
21:51 < D_> I honestly can't tell
21:51 < dtm_> lol!
21:51  * dtm_ drowns it to see if it's a witch
21:52 < D_> "The author is a Forbes contributor. The opinions expressed are those of the writer."
21:52 < dtm_> where'd you see that
21:52 < D_> I guess Forbes disavows this article
21:52 < D_> Below the blurb about the author
21:52 < dtm_> oh i see.
21:52 < D_> on the right side
21:52 < dtm_> lol!
21:52 < D_> For what it's worth, staff writers don't get that disclaimer
21:53 < dtm_> okay so it's a secondary source.  and i say it's good.  but it's not an RS?  but if i had 3+ substantial RSes, i can quote it and cite it as a cherry on top.
21:53 < dtm_> amirite
21:54 < dtm_> it has a good description or synopsis of the book.
21:54 < dtm_> it's not something that i'm relying heavily upon.
21:54 < dtm_> and i would cite it as "this guy said this about it"
21:55 < D_> The Forbes application form for becoming a contributor is a Google Docs form
21:55 < D_> I am now convinced that their website is ran about as well as the Soviet Union c. 1991
22:00 < dtm_> :-I
22:00 < SigmaWP> :\
22:00 < SigmaWP> ok, fine...
22:00 < SigmaWP> I'll allow it
22:00 < dtm_> wow.  well, i've read two very well written articles on it though ;)  lol
22:00 < dtm_> the right good gentleman Sigma from WP has allowed it!
22:01 < dtm_> can i get an a-MENNNNNN-ahhhh?!
22:01 < D_> I think SigmaWP was talking about my Soviet Union analogy
22:01 < dtm_> cool
22:01 < D_> At least I'd expect that
22:01 < dtm_> sounds good.  we'll do that.
22:01 < D_> But hey, you can still use your source

23:08 < mareklug> dtm_ well, it so happens that ASGP has a business account at a well-known chain gang bank.  And they told me:  we can't give you free banking, even though you are a nonprofit, but we can make it free, if you just use the account's debit card 5 times in a billing cycle.  And they invariably, no matter who I talk to, give this encouragement, verbatim: "It does not have to be a large purchase, it could be just a stick of gum. But 5 times in a
23:08 < mareklug>  billing cycle, and you avoid the $12 service fee."  Ok, so I got tired of amassing sticks of gum at $0.38 at the ExxonMobil station and $0.75 (with tax include) at Walgreen's
23:08 < mareklug> and I found this Pennies in Action Fund where it just so happens you can donate as little as a penny -- by PayPal, of all things.  So I did.

23:13  * Firefly67 jumps to reddit's defense
23:13 < mareklug> dtm I am pushing to to the point of absurdity, of course, but I think I am right on this.  The idea being, PayPal is a badass way to do micropayments, because they charge you out the ass for transcactions.  So I am forcing the issue, as it were -- we need more micropayment options in the economy that are not saddled by bankers' fees.
23:13 < dtm_> closedmouth: worse than aol?  them's.... them's fightin words, son.

23:15 < koishi> idk when exactly that starts tho
23:15 < koishi> ...2003?
23:16 < mareklug> dtm why would something inherently wheat-based by gluten free? btw, did I tell you (no, it was Soap/Swob) that "gluty" in Polish means "snot"?
23:16 < dtm_> holy crap i bet there's everything twinkie related, on wikipedia.  everything there ever was to know, ever!!
23:16 < dtm_> mareklug: wait.  does it have *food* in it?
23:16 < closedmouth> koishi: yeah, got anywhere with the dumb masses
23:16 < koishi> rightg

23:17 < mareklug> dtm_ not really.  they are very snooty over at Pl wiki over my rusty Polish in the nuances of style division… they have made me effectively not write any more articles.
23:17 < mareklug> I just gnome there.
23:17 < Firefly67> Can I tell a Polish joke?

23:21 < mareklug> UnknownNinjaNN2_ http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=gnoming    I like this definition a lot:  "Verb - The act of recklessly (under the influence of something illicit or mind altering) going around and stealing lawn gnomes for the sake of a collection purpose. IT is definately fun to take one of your favourite gnomes with you on vacation and take pictures of that gnome from different locations in the world and send it by postcard to
23:21 < mareklug>  the original owner."   Have you seen the movie "Amelié"?  She stole her father's gnome, and that started the meme.

23:53 < dtm_> :-I
23:53 < NNRemaker> Because the government is crazy or greedy or both.
23:54 < ToAruShiroiNeko> NNRemaker it is probably all in the name of decency

23:56 < mareklug> ToAruShiroiNeko if the violent revolution does happen, and results in major lawlessness and violence, yes, of course the military will step in.
23:57 < ToAruShiroiNeko> mareklug last time they did that millitary was put on trial for having the audacity of doing that
23:57 < NNRemaker> Mareklug: BUT they should try not to hurt people if possible.
23:58 < mareklug> you and I both know that the military in Turkey styles itself as the protector of the aspirations of Attaturk for a westernized democracy
