Blocking policy[edit]

no usernames which are hard to read or distinguish - Where did you pull that fucking nonsense from? AceModerator 03:06, 13 November 2020 (UTC)

From our guide - Your username can be anything but should not be offensive (racist, homophobic, pornographic etc.). AceModerator 03:10, 13 November 2020 (UTC)
Creating an account with a name that impersonates another user's, is offensive, or is ridiculously complicated/long. This is an indefinite ban on sight. Users that have confusing or potentially disruptive usernames (e.g. 3029489032489208409284, GOOOAAAAAATTTTTT!!!) should be told to change to a more appropriate username. From RW:BLOCK. Sirius (dog star / Pencil.png / Tux icon.png / Shield.png) 07:55, 13 November 2020 (UTC)
So nothing like no usernames which are hard to read or distinguish. There was nothing wrong with that users initial name and you made up some bullshit rule on the fly. Don't do that. AceModerator 22:07, 13 November 2020 (UTC)
Look, yell at Bongolian first. Bongolian moved the users page without notifying them. I considered the name "potentially disruptive" myself due to the lack of alphanumeric characters in it, so I opted them the opportunity to pick a better name. Sirius (dog star / Pencil.png / Tux icon.png / Shield.png) 22:46, 13 November 2020 (UTC)
Just try to avoid making shit up in future. AceModerator 00:06, 14 November 2020 (UTC)
────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────I mean, sure. That said, this doesn't change that the name was likely potentially disruptive (weird to use in ping templates for example). I'll admit to having been more instinctually about fixing what Bongolian perceived as an issue (namely that the username was unacceptable for that reason), than using my brain to question if that was the right decision to do. I apologize for that part. Sirius (dog star / Pencil.png / Tux icon.png / Shield.png) 13:15, 14 November 2020 (UTC)

Congrats on your victory, fellow new mod! I expect you to make a most effective moderator, given the expertise you showed in the Mob v. Techs Coop case. --Goatspeed. Stalk meCircularREmail2.gifasoningSteal my ideas 05:38, 2 December 2020 (UTC)
The mob has chosen wisely. Congratulations. Spud (talk) 05:45, 2 December 2020 (UTC)
Aww thanks guys! I promise to do a terrible awful mediocre try to do a decent job as a mod. Feel freee to yell at me in ATIM for mistakes tho! Sirius (dog star / Pencil.png / Tux icon.png / Shield.png) 07:43, 2 December 2020 (UTC)
Quick question, who can I complain to upgrade RW to the latest version of media wiki? A mod, a tech, or a foundation member?The 𝗦𝗾𝗿𝘁-𝟭 talk stalk block 03:49, 4 December 2020 (UTC)
@Sqrt-1 Foundation members and users with webserver access. The former can instruct the latter to upgrade the tooling and appoint people for the latter. The users with webserver access can do the upgrade itself. Sirius (dog star / Pencil.png / Tux icon.png / Shield.png) 08:06, 4 December 2020 (UTC)

Riot article[edit]

Sorry I reverted you, but you nuked the list of uncited participant names just as I was adding another citation for one of the participants that you nuked. Please be aware that some of us are heavily scrutinizing this list and making sure all the names are properly cited. Thanks. —cosmikdebris talk stalk 22:14, 13 January 2021 (UTC)

Feel free to use the diff as reference as to where the names should go. Citations should be considered a requirement on the initial edit, not post-facto imho. Sirius (dog star / Pencil.png / Tux icon.png / Shield.png) 22:15, 13 January 2021 (UTC)
I will delete names without references as I find them. However some of the uncited people clearly were at the event, e.g. Baked Alaska and Nick Fuentes, and whoever added them was too lazy to include a proper citation. It's much easier to start with a suspect list than create one out of thin air. —cosmikdebris talk stalk 22:18, 13 January 2021 (UTC)
Fair, I'll give you some time to correct some of the references. Just don't forget to snipe the ones that aren't referenced. Sirius (dog star / Pencil.png / Tux icon.png / Shield.png) 22:19, 13 January 2021 (UTC)
