Mathematics Articles

I see you've taken notice of my work. I recently uploaded some images and used them in a few articles, but for some reason I cannot upload any more images. Do you know what could be causing this? thescaryworker 21:12, 5 January 2009 (EST)

New users have the number of images they can upload limited, in order to head off vandalism. You can either wait until tomorrow, or... I can make you a sysop.

Help (other than psychological)

Hi,

I still prefer that you kill the redirects to this page in your userspace, though—double redirects don't work.

I'm new to this janitor job and I don't know how to find the double redirects to stamp them out. Would you mind walking me through it? Thanks.

--UnicornTapestry 04:55, 24 January 2009 (EST)

Of course I don't mind. ^_^ It's easy: just go to Special:DoubleRedirects, and you'll find every double redirect listed there. Of the handful we have, most are there on purpose (like the "Circular reasoning" one). The page I was prompting you to delete is listed there: User:UnicornTapestry/sandbox/Goatism. Another page you should clear out is User talk:UnicornTapestry/sandbox/Goatism—it's not a double redirect (and hence not listed with the others), but it is a redirect no one will ever use. Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 05:08, 24 January 2009 (EST)
Thanks! Easy once you've shown me how. --UnicornTapestry 05:35, 24 January 2009 (EST)

Recatting

Could you please make yourself a bot while recatting things - you're cluttering up recent changes. Phantom Hoover 05:37, 25 January 2009 (EST)

Is that a serious request? Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 05:37, 25 January 2009 (EST)

Yes. Why wouldn't it be? Phantom Hoover 05:45, 25 January 2009 (EST)
It just struck me as a silly request. Could you tell me how it makes things difficult for you? Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 05:52, 25 January 2009 (EST)
It makes it harder to find interesting edits and is a general nuisance. Phantom Hoover 05:54, 25 January 2009 (EST)
I understand, Phantom. So I'm sorry to say that I am not willing to change myself into a bot whenever I feel like mass recatting. I do not feel I am out of line to ask you to just bear with it. Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 06:00, 25 January 2009 (EST)
Turning human editors into bots is pretty dubious. Are you sure we should be doing it? ЩєазєюіδWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 16:18, 25 January 2009 (EST)
As long as they get turned back before they need to eat (or drink) again, the lasting effects are negligible. ħumanUser talk:Human 19:11, 25 January 2009 (EST)
Phantom Hoover (as he requested, and I granted) or anyone else is free to bot themselves when making repetitive edits. I view it as a matter of personal preference, and I will not do so myself. Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 19:18, 25 January 2009 (EST)

RA, do you think you could pause your recatting efforts for a while? I really think there's some serious problems developing in this catting saga, and it's just getting worse as you go. Let's talk about it first. DogP 00:45, 6 February 2009 (EST)

Alright. Sorry for doing that doing the discussion—it's a well-ingrained habit in me to "fix" (what to me are) poorly-categorized articles when I see them. I'll hold off until we can reach some sort of agreement. Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 00:52, 6 February 2009 (EST)
No, it's a habit for you to do whatever you feel like, without ever asking for "community" input. Notice that I was not the one to complain first here, you are fudging up the wiki with your own preconceived notion of how it should be organized. DogP, is this being discussed in one central location, at least? ħumanUser talk:Human 02:47, 6 February 2009 (EST)
I think your accusation of "fudging up the wiki" is uselessly subjective. To me, my actions are helpful, and to you, my actions are "fudging up the wiki". Until the discussion regarding categories has been concluded, neither of us can claim to be right about which catting policy is and is not most useful to the site. Hence, why I stopped recatting and have engaged in the discussion, so we can work out the best course of action. Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 03:20, 6 February 2009 (EST)
I have apologized and stopped recategorizing, as Doggedpersistence asked of me. Now, Human, did you have any constructive criticism to share with me, or did you just want to pile some shit on?

Aaah; Query "disinterested" as RA was the one who Sysoped CUR Love² 22:58, 27 January 2009 (EST)
I think they mean "disinterested" in the sense that I haven't lobbied for any side in the discussion about CUR, and have stayed out of the various related furry/therian/otherkin discussions.

WHO sysopped CUR is irrelevant--everyone gets sysopped after a while, it's SOP. TheoryOfPractice 23:08, 27 January 2009 (EST)

Not necessarily. Some 'crats sysop new users faster than others. I think it's highly relevant. For instance, I never would have sysopped CUR. He has always been too much of a clumsy idiot to be trusted with a lousy mop and broom. RA sysopped him when he was not necessarily "mostly harmless" - CUR has been edit warring and making a jerk out of himself since day one. ħumanUser talk:Human 01:17, 28 January 2009 (EST)

You borked your edit to fun:poutine. What are the odds you mucked up any of your other 700 recatting edits? Can you re-check them for functionality in your copious spare time?

I stand by all my work as being done to the best of my ability. I am, of course, only human, so naturally I will make mistakes.
As for the mistake rate on my "700 recatting edits", I would like to think it shares the same rate as your your 10,000+ mainspace edits. I look forward to continuing our mutual trust in each other's editing abilities.
Additionally, I am putting renewed effort into obtaining employment, and will generally only be available on weekday evenings and all day on weekends, so my free time is unfortunately not as abundant as it once was.

So what's the point? You can't be a vandal and a sysop or 'crat? Or does the vandal bin not work at all? If it doesn't, then action may be required on our part. --"ConservapediaUndergroundResistorfeline fanatic 20:22, 28 January 2009 (EST)
I think the vandal group is separate from the vandal bin. - User \pi 20:26, 28 January 2009 (EST)

That's just because of double handling. Take "A long way to Tipperary" as an example. He was put in the Vandal group (as a user rights change) by TheoryOfPractice on 7th Jan. In fact the vandal bin records show he'd already been binned on 4th Jan. If the vandal group doesn't work & it's just causing confusion & double handling, we should probably get it removed from the user rights screen. ЩєазєюіδWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 21:11, 28 January 2009 (EST)
There's a good chance that the 'cratable "vandal" group predates the bin, and was created as a joke. Considering the possible confusion it creates, I suppose someone should whine to Trent if we can't remove it ourselves. ħumanUser talk:Human 21:55, 28 January 2009 (EST)
I suspect the 'crat group was Trent's original idea but like the hide/show of edits decided that in the interest of fairness it should be available to all sysops rather than just 'crates. - User \pi 21:57, 28 January 2009 (EST)

Damned if you do, damned if you don't! Actually, I think the only user I ever put on "patrol every fucking edit" was Proxima, because no matter how good her edits were, the writing itself was usually awful, and it embarrasses me, for some unknown reason, to see poor writing on this site. Anyway, I don't have "hide bots" turned on on my watchlist. If RA does a hundred edits as a bot, I can always look at one or two our of curiosity, and "hide" bot edits to see the recent history without them. Ironically, of course, this round of edits resulted from a discussion Jacob and I had regarding subcats to politics... well, at least the one I checked ;) 00:05, 31 January 2009 (EST)

Vandal

I note you were one of several who dealt with THC LOADEE. Fortunately there was more than one of you. On Dec 10th last year I dealt with a vandal attack single handed. That’s a thankless task. If you get it right the chances are no one notices. If you block the wrong person under pressure or seem to block the wrong person under pressure you’re accused of sysop abuse. If you ever find yourself the lone defender against a persistent vandal look for other active sysops in recent changes and ask them in their talk pages to help.

User:THC LOADE has just turned up. For the reason given above I’m not dealing with this single handed. Proxima Centauri 14:05, 2 February 2009 (EST)

Thanks

For getting the Community Standards revamp started & all the work you did on various drafts of it. I tried to send an intercom message earlier in response to yours, but instead I accidentally broke the site for a while. Anyway, I've now linked to all the various revamp pages at the top of RationalWiki talk: Community Standards, and marked them as archived discussions. Any more discussions about changes should be at the CS talk page rather than keeping any of those other ones going. ЩєазєюіδWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 20:44, 3 February 2009 (EST)

Cascade protection

Is there a reason your userpage is cascade protected? -- Nx talk 07:37, 5 February 2009 (EST)

Yes: to keep vandals from fiddling with the personal templates displayed on it. It's more efficient than locking them individually. Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 22:42, 5 February 2009 (EST)

Can I do that? Mei 23:15, 11 February 2009 (EST)
If you ask, I'd be happy to 'bot you (at least temporarily). Or, you can make a separate account, get a bureaucrat to enbotten it for you, and use that whenever you'll be making repetitive edits en masse. Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 23:19, 11 February 2009 (EST)
RA and I are what is known as Bureaucrats. We were kicked down the stairs (turned into sysops), then we landed in a bucket full o' crap (crats? Crap? get it? he he). Bureaucrats have the ability to change user access abilities, in other words, we can make sysops. Sadly, I dunno what the criteria is for becoming a Crat. I was kicked down by Trent when I asked to become... I don't even remember. We hand out sysopship like candy, but Crats, I dunno about. Javasca₧ My computer has two mowses!

I'm sorry, Mei, but no. Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 23:50, 11 February 2009 (EST)
Why? Mei 23:54, 11 February 2009 (EST)
My own standards are fairly high, so they're not widely accepted: For a person to be a sysop, they need only be "mostly harmless". But for a person to be bureaucratized, they should meet a higher standard. They should :(1) have made contributions of some substance; (2) be a good enough judge of character (i.e. able to avoid sysopping vandals); and (3) most importantly, participate in working with the site on a meta-level (good business sense holds that only those who actively work to maintain the health of the community should be given any sort of "administrative" powers like demoting/promoting people). (That last one is the main reason I opposed bureaucratizing Ace McWicked—my impression of him is that unless some random subject piques his interest, he rarely ventures outside of the I-just-got-off-from-work-now-it's-time-to-party train of thought.)

This from the guy who demoted CUR... standards? he wasn't "mostly harmless" yet. And still isn't. Anyway, back on topic, sort-of, perhaps we should juggle together some general idea of what constitutes cratworthiness? We could have awesome new debates! ħumanUser talk:Human 00:04, 12 February 2009 (EST)
