Hi[change source]

I was curious and translated the Morse code on your userpage and I can't believe I got rickrolled! - IAmSwiz (talk) 02:08, 8 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I knew one person would fall for it. No need to be ashamed. Curiosity even gets the best of us. Elytrian (talk) 03:00, 8 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Dang it. I did it as well, not realising this thread :-( SHB2000 (talk) 23:50, 11 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Lol. I used to be pretty good at Morse but it's been a while. Ha ha ha. :) Antandrus (talk) 01:12, 12 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Hey! Put this in your user page {{User:Elytrian/RickRolled}} now that you've been rick rolled! Elytrian - Talk 02:58, 12 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Welcome[change source]

Welcome, Elytrian!
Hello, Elytrian, and welcome to the Simple English Wikipedia! Thank you for your changes.

You may want to begin by reading these pages:

For some ideas of pages to work on, read Wikipedia:Requested pages or the list of wanted pages.

At Wikipedia, remember to be bold! This means that you should not be afraid to change any articles. This is because, if you make any mistakes, you can always fix it later! If you have any questions, you can always ask them at Simple Talk.

If you need help just click here and type {{helpme}} and your question.

I hope you have a fun time here. If you need any help, be sure to visit Simple Talk or contact an administrator. See you around! Darubrub (Let me know) 14:38, 7 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Thank you for your greetings. Currently, the vandal is reverting my changes. I'm going to need to probably make a bot sooner or later for undoing that, its been 3 hours of this guy doing this. Elytrian (talk) 14:44, 7 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Careful though, it might end up like this mess again. Darubrub (Let me know) 14:46, 7 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I'm probably going to put the page up for semi-protection sooner or later. Hope an admin notices. Elytrian (talk) 14:48, 7 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Please remember to sign when you leave messages[change source]

Information.svg Hello and welcome to Wikipedia! Just in case you didn't know, when you post messages on talkpages and Wikipedia pages, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ("~~~~") at the end of your message. You can also click on the signature button (Insert-signature.png or Signature icon.png), located in the edit toolbar, which is above the change window. This will put a signature containing your user name or IP address and the time you posted the message. This information is useful because other users will be able to tell who said what, and when. Pages that may require a signature, such as Talk:Main Page, User talk: Thank you for your participation. --Cewbot (talk) 03:14, 8 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

So sorry! Gosh, I forgot. Thanks, even though ur a bot. Elytrian (talk) 03:17, 8 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

User talk pages[change source]

Hey Elytrian! Just FYI, our policy does not forbid users from deleting comments from their own talk pages (see here). There's still a record of messages in the page history after they're deleted, and we can assume they're aware of what the messages said. It's usually better just to leave them be until another issue comes up. Thanks for all your help in the past few days. Aranya (talk) 05:04, 9 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Isn't there? Well thank you for informing me, I must have read the policies in the wrong way. Elytrian (talk) 05:17, 9 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

User page adapted...[change source]

Hello Elytran, and welcome to this wiki. I have removed some info from your userpage, which I consider "sensitive information". Wikipedia user pages get seen by many people, and I don't want anyone to be i trouble for what they write on their user page. Don't hesistate to email me if you need more info...--Eptalon (talk) 17:05, 18 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Eptalon: I consider the "Denarian" userbox not sensitive info. But, Hey, my user page looks cleaner now! (Its still a mess though) So, I'll let is pass. :P -- Elytrian - Talk 02:45, 19 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

July 2021[change source]

Hello! Thank you for creating Category:Animals of New Zealand. However, we normally need at least three pages in a category before it is created. Because categories are a way to group together similar articles, there is no need to create a new category for just one or two articles. If you think there might be more pages to add to the new category, please add them now. Thank you. MathXplore (talk) 05:30, 28 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I'm adding them! Gosh, I can't take a break! :O Elytrian - Talk 06:06, 28 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Done... Elytrian - Talk 06:16, 28 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Hello! Thank you for creating Category:Experimental fusion power plants. However, we normally need at least three pages in a category before it is created. Because categories are a way to group together similar articles, there is no need to create a new category for just one or two articles.

@Auntof6: Very well. The Tokamak, JET, NIF and others don't have pages, so I can't do anything about it. Elytrian - Talk 07:46, 29 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Communicating with Ljupco[change source]

Now that edit warring on Twinkie has ceased, here's why you shouldn't communicate with him. So firstly, he's been harassing editors on WMF projects since 2005, about 16 years ago. With a username initially called "Projects", he started vandalising all WMF projects.

He went to jail in 2015 for electrical harassment, and came out of County Cook jail in 2018. But yet he continues to harass people, with email threats. He has a mental illness, and I hope he gets help, but sadly the health system anywhere isn't near enough for mental health patients like this one. SHB2000 (talk) 05:20, 2 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

The irony in the first line... but okay then. I'll stay clear of him. Also, this isn't my main email, and all Wikipedia emails are sent to my spam(I HATE EMAILS). Elytrian - Talk 05:25, 2 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Just a small notice: Very often, vandalism is done for getting attention/being noticed. So in general,the best thing you can do is giving these people as litlte attention as possible. I can't (and won't) comment on the current case, as the CU policy forbids me to. --Eptalon (talk) 05:36, 2 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Eptalon:, no, he is not an attention seeking vandal, but his mental illness causes him to do such. SHB2000 (talk) 05:40, 2 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
As I said, I can't and won't comment on the current case. --Eptalon (talk) 05:45, 2 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Already have. I've also disabled emailing. And now, time for me to go back to regular editing. Elytrian - Talk 05:40, 2 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

question on adminship nomination[change source]

For what reason are you doubting my use of certain tools/vandal fighting? You recently doubted that I'm mature enough for being an administrator for Simple English. It was also mentioned there were low amounts of work during the past eleven years during which I have edited, given warnings for questionable, inappropriate editing/page creation and reported likely and possible vandals, bad usernames or those personally attacking certain Wikipedia editors toward the Wikipedia:Vandalism in progress page. What are the primary reasons for questioning my maturity, vandalism-fighting abilities and use of vandalism fighting Wikipedia tools? Angela Kate Maureen 12:29, 5 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Look, I just don't see your changes often on the New changes page. I also don't see you using tools such as Twinkle, HotCat, etc in default edit summaries, but do correct me if you always write custom edit summaries. I also see most of your changes add bytes, and when looking into your contribution history, I don't see rvv or reverted. Elytrian - Talk 12:33, 5 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
This is just my opinion. I'm new here (about a month), so I recommend you take my words with a pinch of salt. And lastly, it is of course an opinion. I also am a little sun of TGSL. Elytrian - Talk 12:36, 5 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
What does "sus" stand for? I've bee busy with real life events over the past several months. That's why I haven't been doing vandalism reverts. I do sometimes use either rvv or reverted in the edit summary, although not as often as some Simple English Wikipedians who revert or undo questionable, vandalistic, spam, personal attack-related or any edits violating neutral points of view on here. Other Simple English Wikipedia editors and administrators need to really give me an opportunity for proving myself here on Simple English. Angela Kate Maureen 12:45, 5 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Better you didn't know. Just know it's. a reference to this. Elytrian - Talk 13:01, 5 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
But, if you wanted to know, sus is the short form of suspicious. (I hate myself) Elytrian - Talk 13:05, 5 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

August 2021[change source]

Welcome, and thank you for trying to lighten up Wikipedia. However, this is an encyclopedia and the articles are made to be serious, so do not make joke edits, as you did to Twinkie. Readers looking for accurate information will not find them amusing. If you would like to test with your editing, try the sandbox, where you can write practically anything you want. Naleksuh (talk) 05:40, 10 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

You think I don't know that? /s And second of all, that is technically accurate. #Department of Fun Elytrian - Talk 06:50, 10 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Please apply for the rollback tool[change source]

I would advise you to apply for the rollback right in fighting LTAs. It's quite quick, and pretty useful. SHB2000 (talk) 05:29, 12 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Umm, maybe I guess? Elytrian - Talk 05:32, 12 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
But en-wiki LTA is currently trying to kill me, so I gotta deal with that. Elytrian - Talk 05:34, 12 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
K I'm back. I don't understand ANY of the documentation of it (looks like simple wiki isn't actually simple at all). So I'd rather not ask for it lest I get blocked for using it. Elytrian - Talk 05:43, 12 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Neptune[change source]

I noticed that you add table about Neptune's moons in the article and a little info about it. It was plagiarism (I deleted your copied text higher). Please, fix your changes and errors in references. And, please, will write either simple language DIFFERENT FROM ENGLISH WIKIPEDIA PAGE or will use other sources. Frontfrog (talk) 22:27, 14 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I didn't add any info on it. Just the table. Whether it may or may not be plagiarism, I don't know what 'info' you are talking about. Elytrian - Talk 04:11, 15 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Yes, it was the table. But I mean this (info including in it):
| class="wikitable" style="float: right; margin-right: 0;" |+ Key |- | bgcolor="ccccff" width="50" style="text-align: center;" |  

Prograde irregular moons | bgcolor="f4c2c2" width="50" style="text-align: center;" | Retrograde irregular moons |} The Neptunian moons are listed here by orbital period, from shortest to longest. Irregular (captured) moons are marked by color. The orbits and mean distances of the irregular moons are variable over short timescales due to frequent planetary and solar perturbations, therefore the listed orbital elements of all irregular moons are averaged over a 6,000-year numerical integration by Brozović et al. (2011).[79] The listed orbital elements of Nereid are averaged over a 400-year integration by Jacobson (2009).[80] The orbital elements are all based on the epoch of 10 June 2000 Terrestrial Time.[81] Triton, the only Neptunian moon massive enough for its surface to have collapsed into a spheroid, is emboldened. :Frontfrog (talk) 06:40, 15 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Huh. :\ Elytrian - Talk 06:42, 15 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Anyway, thank you for addition. :) Frontfrog (talk) 06:45, 15 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Just asking, but Neptune is longer and more referenced than both Jupiter and Saturn combined. So why did it get rejected the last time you promoted it? Elytrian - Talk 06:54, 15 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Do you mean the promotion from February 17? The article was not completely simplified and there were not so many sources on June 7. And I have the promotion to GA. Frontfrog (talk) 07:22, 15 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Vandalism[change source]

What recent changes are vandalism? (talk) 06:11, 18 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Sorry! I use RedWarn Patrol, and your edit was marked as Very likely bad. So like any long time editor, I had warned you. Also, I skipped to lvl 4 warning as you had done 3 "disruptive" edits once ChenzwBot had warned you. You can go ahead and revert my edits. ~~~ Elytrian - Talk 06:49, 18 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

G4 deletions[change source]

Hi Elytrian. Please do not nominate articles for G4 quick deletion just because they have been deleted before. They need to have been deleted at RfD, not just quick deleted. Thanks, --Ferien (talk) 08:39, 26 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I would nominate them for the same reason as they were before, but I can't know as they were deleted Ely - Talk 09:44, 26 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
You would see in the delete message why they were deleted before. It will have a link to the Rfd if it was deleted at Rfd. -Djsasso (talk) 11:38, 26 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Over redirect![change source]

Hi! Why did you redirect Wikipedia:Wiki Loves Women South Asia 2021 to User:Darkfrog24/Wikiproject:WikiLovesWomenSouthAsia2021? Hirok Raja (talk) 05:57, 27 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

We do not move Wikiprojects to the main-space here as wikiprojects can be abandoned. This WikiProject will probably be abandoned after 2021 has finished, at the most. As for the many redirects, I was just clumsy moving things back. Ely - Talk 06:11, 27 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
OWO! It's not a wiki project, but a contest. All participating communities have been instructed to create a page in the Wikipedia namespace! You even call it clumsy! But the reality is that running a global competition under someone's user page is 100 times more clumsy! All our other communities have been following the same pattern in all contests at all times. The Wikipedia namespace has been created for all these purposes. It does not depend on the longevity of the project or the contest! I probably don't understand. Hirok Raja (talk) 06:31, 27 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Take a look at this page! Hirok Raja (talk) 06:37, 27 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Clumsy was me when moving it. I do not see any such rule @Hirok Raja. If you wish to move it back to the main-space, please go to the simple talk, I will not be commenting further. Ely - Talk 06:40, 27 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Very well, move it back. But I am not in favor of it. Ely - Talk 06:42, 27 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
It is not a wikiproject. (I have removed the category) We have other such events in Wikipedia space. See Wikipedia:Wikipedia Asian Month/2020 -Djsasso (talk) 11:00, 27 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

September 2021[change source]

Information.svg Hello, Elytrian. When you revert a user's changes, like you did earlier, don't forget to leave the user a message on their talk page, especially when reverting vandalism or a test edit. You may find Template:User talk page warnings/table useful when doing this, to let them know that the change was considered inappropriate, and to direct them to the sandbox. Thank you. --Ferien (talk) 18:08, 1 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Also, it may be better to talk about things like this off-wiki, per WP:BEANS. --Ferien (talk) 18:43, 1 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Ferien Its quite clear that the vandal knew how to "stuff his nose full of beans" already. Ely - Talk 05:52, 2 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
But by saying "ban this text", the vandal will know what not to do and would just add different text, which would cause just as much damage. --Ferien (talk) 07:59, 2 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Then just ban keywords such as "d**k", "p****" and others. Then done. For p***graphy related articles, just give special access. Ely - Talk 08:03, 2 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I'd not want to comment more of this in public, but there are some valid reasons to use keywords like "dick" or "pussy". There used to be a popular Australian retailer brand called "Dick Smith" which I used to half my electronics from (although that has gone bankrupt since 2016), and there'd be good reasons to not blacklist "pornography". Also, note that Wikipedia isn't censored. AFAIK, we want to let things more looser, not restrict things more. (which I made a long rant about here).
Regarding the blacklist, on the English Wikivoyage, we did that to "ass" but ended up removing that because it caught a lot of false positives. Probably not a good idea here. SHB2000 (talk) 08:26, 5 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Which user? Ely - Talk 05:51, 2 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Here and here you didn't warn. Most of the time, it's appropriate to warn, and even if it turns out to be an LTA, warning is not particularly harmful. --Ferien (talk) 07:57, 2 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
The second one is the (now named by me) "poop" LTA and the first one I do realize was my mistake. Ely - Talk 07:59, 2 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Ok, I'm just letting you know that sometimes warning can encourage people to stop, and also, some administrators like to see warnings when reporting to VIP. --Ferien (talk) 08:03, 2 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Hey[change source]

Let me work on my articles and stop reverting what I am doing. I’d appreciate it and stop with the comments in the edit field. They are not to be used as a comment to someone else. They are to be used for what you are doing so comments like “OH MY GOD” and “Dude no need to remove…..” is not what they are to be used for. Thank you. PDLTalk to me!OMG, What have I done? (Pronouns: He, him, his) 05:30, 7 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I'm too lazy to send you a message. They are not your articles, you do NOT own them, and can be edited by all. (See disclaimer below) Ely - Talk 05:35, 7 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I am very well aware of that and I’m not claiming ownership but I’m actively working on it and you instantly reverted all my changes. PDLTalk to me!OMG, What have I done? (Pronouns: He, him, his) 05:53, 7 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@PotsdamLamb: Just another case of simultaneous edits, I guess. Go ahead, I won't edit it. *sigh* Ely - Talk 06:06, 7 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I’m pretty sure I’ve got them all now. There are reasons I delete large sections. On a couple of them the language was verbatim from the source they listed. Mac is going through a couple now. PDLTalk to me!OMG, What have I done? (Pronouns: He, him, his) 06:25, 7 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Formal Notification[change source]

Going forward you are not to have any interactions with me, on or off wiki (email), nor talk about me in any wiki project or wiki site. I’m placing this due to the interactions with you throughout the day and your comments all day long. I will do the same. PDLTalk to me!OMG, What have I done? (Pronouns: He, him, his) 09:16, 7 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@PotsdamLamb just an FYI, but only admins (not global sysops though) can do such formal bans like this. If Elytrian does ever communicate with you here, no form of restrictions like blocks may be inposed. If it were on another WMF site, there is no limitations on that, and like the admins on the other project would really care (or unless the many wikis with no admins such as the Cree Wikipedia). SHB2000 (talk) 13:54, 7 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@SHB2000 You are wrong. This is me requesting it first before it goes up to the admin level. If it goes to that point. I have every single right to request someone to not communicate with me, see the Essay Goaway. Again we operate a lot differently here. We don’t have an arbcom and such. So this is my first choice. I am on a break so I won’t respond to any further comments. PDLTalk to me!OMG, What have I done? (Pronouns: He, him, his) 16:10, 7 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Yes, but there is nothing stopping Elytrian from communicating with you elsewhere, and if so, nothing can be done about it. Yes, I understand that yes, you do have a right to request that, but that is often considered uncivil, and there's nothing preventing them from communicating with you, even here. SHB2000 (talk) 22:27, 7 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
If Elytrian does ever communicate with you, there can be no blame put on them. After all, your talk page is not your personal message site. It's a page that the MediaWiki developers made to make communication easier. SHB2000 (talk) 22:52, 7 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@SHB2000 Is this my talk page or yours? I really don't like discussions going here that do not involve me. Ely - Talk 03:02, 8 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Well... it does involve you. I was just saying that there's nothing stopping you from communicating with them, and that non-admins may not impose such formal bans, and can only impose informal bans. SHB2000 (talk) 03:22, 8 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
That pretty much means nothing. The essay Goaway is a controversial one, and there are no such policies that state PDL's "ban". >=( Ely - Talk 04:02, 8 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Yup. At least they're now blocked for six months. SHB2000 (talk) 06:06, 8 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Who's blocked? PDL? Or whom? I think this was the wrong place... Ely - Talk 06:43, 8 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Oh, I see he's been blocked... Ely - Talk 06:56, 8 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Wikipedia translation of the week: 2021-37[change source]

Complex[change source]

I don't think that the page Women's empowerment is not in complex English. Because I have simplified as much as possible. BTW, I have a lot to develop in the page, so in my next edit, along with further simplification, I am to remove the template.

hello[change source]

Hi. I will give you the history if you like.

I first used Wikipedia in 2001 I think as a result of a web comic I liked to read called Irregular Webcomic that advertised this new site called Wikipedia and encouraged its readers to edit. I didn't follow up any of my edits, nor did I realise that I was supposed to create an account. According to the comic's creator, we were meant to simply change things that were wrong to right, if we knew about a topic. Thus I probably made about one edit per month, but didn't keep a record of what I was editing.

Unknown to me, my ISP had alternating IP ranges, across about 10,000 different IP addresses, and overnight at about 2am it kicked us off and then when we logged back in the next morning or whenever we'd reconnect, we'd get a new IP. While it was possible to keep the same IP for 2 days or longer (I got up to 3 days once), more commonly you got a new one every day, and whichever new one you got was one you would never use again. In other words, as far as Wikipedia was concerned, the first 50 edits I made were by 50 different people.

The rationale, I later found out, for my ISP doing this was because they were trying to save money. They had 20,000 users and by kicking us off IP addresses they could spend money for 10,000 ports for 20,000 users, and they passed the savings on to us!

Sadly, Wikipedia made things even worse by having an out-of-date ISP lookup tool, which listed the ISP as being a school, so they assumed me to be a high school student (I was born in 1975!) and they thus assumed that all of my edits were vandalism.

I first seriously edited Wikipedia is 2004 as a bit of an experiment to see if it was any good, though by that stage I already had 50 edits. I decided to create a new article about a topic that I knew something about and see if it would be removed. I created one article per week for four weeks and the first three were deleted within a few hours, but then one stayed. The first article I created was about Americacentric, which still exists to this day. It is essentially a concept that is not unique to USA, but is often accused of being unique to USA (India has a similar situation, as undoubtedly does China) in which Americans tend to think that the world revolves around them. Of course, Ancient Romans had the same idea, as did the British, French and Spanish in different points in history. It is a result of being powerful, not about a particular nation.

After that one article stayed up, I tried to look at whether I could create other articles, and, after I had a few stay up happily, I decided to give it a real try.

The reason for the experiment, you see, was because I didn't want to commit to a project like that if they were censoring my work too much. Once again, you can blame that comic strip for my believing that, as the author kept commenting about censorship on Wikipedia, so I wanted to see if it was true.

After a while, I found myself banned as a "vandal" with a "long history of vandalism", which I took personally and was quite angry about, because I had never engaged in any vandalism. The ban was 3 days and I was horrified by it. Little did I know that it was a ban that was meant for some other person who used my IP address, and based on their actions, not mine.

The admins assumed that we were all different people and indeed we were. There were 20,000 of them on 10,000 IPs. I don't know how many of us used Wikipedia, of course, but at a guess it was at least several hundred. Perhaps 500 or 700 different people were using Wikipedia semi-regularly. Some of them were vandals.

So then they told me to create an account, so I did, but I didn't want to create an account with any personal meaning for me, so I made this account with some obscure name and a password that I couldn't remember, and then, expectedly, they banned me.

I thought that the decision to ban me was a foregone conclusion, but apparently they were just looking at removing a page I had written, and my being banned was not in consideration. It wasn't until after I had said that I didn't care what they did that they then decided to use some of the mentions by various IP addresses and pretend that they were me, and since one of them had threatened to kill me on my discussion page, they banned me for that! My year-long ban was officially because someone else had threatened to kill me!

I was horrified about that, to say the least, and thankful that I hadn't used any identifying marks. There was even a discussion on my ISP with various people threatening to murder me for getting our ISP banned from Wikipedia. The 500 to 700 people who regularly used Wikipedia were up in arms, and they were effectively protesting my ban on the grounds that it was actually banning hundreds of different people.

As a result of that, my ban was never enforced, and I was never actually banned.

I didn't use Wikipedia then for what I thought was about a year, but it turned out to be 10 1/2 months. I guess I had forgotten the time. I checked if I was banned and saw that I was, but it was for a year, and so I checked to see if the ban was still current and saw that it was not. But then I forgot the password so created a second account, not to evade my ban (as I was never actually banned) but because I didn't know my password.

I then used Wikipedia happily for a year with some 50,000 edits and had no blocks or conflict with anyone.

Then I found out about this page called Wikipedia Review which had people complaining about their bans, so I went there and complained about my ban, about how they banned me for what someone else did, and how I was ultimately banned because someone else threatened to kill me, which is about as absurd as they come.

Then someone on Wikipedia worked out that that was me, and then reinforced the ban, initially just to see out the remaining month and a half, then a full new year, and then, after that second year was served, I came back for 10 minutes and the ban was reinforced indefinitely.

Since then, they have claimed that I have various sockpuppets.

I used to check them, and some of them belonged to a guy who had been banned himself for attacking me, and he had used the accounts that they claimed to be my sockpuppets to build up support against me. In other words, they were sockpuppets, yes, but they were used against me, not by me.

After that, it seems that they have just added random people. I saw that some were in USA, UK, Israel, Canada and all sorts of places that I've never been to.

I have protested the ban several times in the last 17 years but they don't listen. I am supposed to admit guilt and then beg for forgiveness, but the problem is that I didn't do any of the things they accused me of doing, and every time when I try to point that out they use it against me.

So I had a thought to just use this Wiki in a good way and hopefully this will demonstrate that I am of good character and that my 17 years of bans can come to an end.

I trust that this satisfies your curiosity. Blissyu2 (talk) 16:52, 26 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Rollback granted[change source]

Part 2[change source]

I will give you a bit of context for this, to explain why my ISP decided to have 10,000 nodes, as they called it, for their 20,000 users.

My ISP was called Internode, and quite literally that was the whole point of it. The aim of the ISP was to provide high-powered internet at a low price, and they were able to do it by giving everyone what amounted to 12 hours of internet each per day, and we all shared the nodes.

To understand why that was important, you need to understand the situation of internet in Australia, at least as existed at the time.

We were quite slow to the party as far as getting internet up and going. While USA had ISPs really early on, it took Australia until the mid-1990s to have anything usable at all. The first one of any note was Ozemail, but that only operated in major cities, and where I lived it simply didn't exist. Eventually, around 1996 or so, where I lived had a small ISP basically operating out of someone's garage, and they charged a whopping $50 per month for some pretty terrible internet speeds and a complete and utter lack of service. We had a download limit too, which gave us essentially about 1 hour per day of usage at most, and we couldn't download anything of any note, and we still had to pay $50 per month! We really had to budget what we were doing!

Eventually, Telstra, who were our only phone line, came on board as Telstra Bigpond, promising to give everyone fast, reliable internet, but the problem was that they couldn't compete with Ozemail in the big cities, so they instead focused on the rural areas like where I lived, and so the little places that charged us huge prices for nothing were run out of business as everyone took on Bigpond instead, or Ozemail if they lived in the city.

Telstra had a competitor with the phone lines called Optus, and they then had their own internet too, which was a little bit faster and a little bit cheaper than Telstra, but Optus didn't operate in the rural areas. So if you lived somewhere remote, you had to go with Telstra, and indeed that became Telstra's marketing strategy - that they were reliable.

Ozemail was the cheapest at about $25 per month but Telstra offered a reasonable $35 per month package that was nowhere near as good as Ozemail's, but they also offered an expensive package, which for $90 per month gave you the fastest internet there was.

The idea that we could be fast (though pitifully slow compared to USA and Europe) attracted some high-end users and it eventually led to the creation of Internode, who offered $79 per month and faster than Telstra's fastest $90 per month speed.

So the people who used Internode were high-end users. These were people who had gone for the most expensive product. And if you are converting $79 per month into US dollars, it was around US $50, which was ridiculously expensive. This was way back at the turn of the century, so it's probably double that today, and was far more than most were charging.

Internode advertised itself as a gaming ISP, and they ran big gaming competitions, including having a competitive StarCraft scene. People could play high-end online graphical games against people in USA and Europe for the first time with competitive speeds.

Another thing that they had, which I didn't realise until much later, was that they were virtually impossible to ban.

Because they had 10,000 nodes, in order to ban someone by IP range, you had to ban the whole of Internode, and because Internode was full of rich, powerful customers, any attempt to do that was quickly followed by massive lawsuits and the ban was lifted.

Unknown to me, what had been happening with Internode users on Wikipedia was that many of them used the fact that they couldn't be banned to engage in some quite horrific behaviour, much of which warranted a permanent ban. While there were undoubtedly some good users as well, many were not good at all.

So when I was doing my experiment to work out whether or not Wikipedia was a good place for me to visit, as I was becoming quite disillusioned with MySpace by then, and I was doing my review of Wikipedia on my blogs, I didn't realise that Wikipedia thought that my IP that I was using on that day, which had engaged in some 8 acts of vandalism over the previous 2 months, was all the same person.

I can prove that it wasn't the same person, incidentally, as my computer recorded my IPs every time I logged on. In fact, a quick phone call to Internode could have revealed which customers had which IPs on which days. But Wikipedia didn't think to do that. Instead, they simply assumed, and my innocent edits were assumed to be vandalism based on that history, and they were all undone.

Perhaps, with that in mind, Wikipedia had reason to ban the whole of Internode, because of how they operated. It was essentially unbannable and was like those TOR proxies in that sense because you never knew who was who.

Some of the legitimate users of Wikipedia who logged in with Internode were annoyed that they kept getting banned. They had done nothing wrong, and it was a constant annoyance.

My problem was that I was too honest.

I am autistic and I overshare, and everything I said was completely accurate. I don't lie. Autistics kind of can't lie. And this didn't rub well with the Wikipedia administrators who were so completely and utterly convinced that I was a 15 year old who engaged in non-stop vandalism.

So then one of the users of Internode, who I shall not name here, compiled a list of things that he claimed I had done. He compiled a page essentially with different Internode IP addresses and tried to work out which ones were me and which ones were not me. Essentially, he was listing all of the worst ones.

I complained to him about that, and told him which ones were actually me, but he called me a liar. I protested to some admins to get him to delete the page, but they instead banned me for a week so that he could compile an even more dishonest list.

His aim, as I later uncovered, was so that he would not have to deal with the incessant bans to all users of his ISP. It had nothing to do with me personally. He was simply prepared for me to suffer so that he could benefit.

So when that 1-week ban expired, I created my own account, Internodeuser, solely so that I could counter his false claims about me.

In it, I compiled a list of the actual IPs I had used, and then I compiled a list of all of the bad behaviour that he had engaged in.

Then that user created an Arbitration complaint seeking to have my page deleted.

In the middle of that Arbitration, an IP address made a death threat to my talk page, which said that they were going to track me down, call Internode to find out who I was, and kill me.

The person who started the Arbitration claimed that it was me threatening him.

That threat, which was a death threat sent to me, not from me, was the sole reason the Arbitration Committee used to justify the ban.

The arbitration was actually aimed at getting me to delete my user subpage which I had created to counter the abusive user's false claims about me that were used to try to find out who I really was so that I could be dealt with.

It is my firm belief that the creator of that arbitration, and of the nasty page about me is the same person that delivered the death threat to me, and is also the same person who went to Internode's forums calling for me to be murdered.

I presented my evidence to Wikipedia Review in order to appeal my ban. By that stage, the person who had gotten me banned had become an administrator, and his harassment of me was used to justify his adminship.

In justifying my second ban, the Wikipedia administrator who justified it, said that it was because I had appealed my ban on Wikipedia Review.

I have made several appeals and have been consistently told that I need to admit to what I did and apologise for it before they can consider anything.

The problem is that I didn't do any of the things they claimed I did.

I have never lied. I have never created sockpuppets. I have never attempted to evade a ban.

In fact, in spite of them never actually banning me, I didn't log in at all anyway.

Since I cannot in good conscience admit to something that I did not do, the only alternative is to participate in other wikis.

In retrospect, I shouldn't have made an account. If I hadn't, I would never have been banned. I shouldn't have bothered to engage in people who were self-serving and who didn't care about hurting me to get what they wanted.

My problem was that I was too honest. Blissyu2 (talk) 19:13, 26 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

G7[change source]

Hey Elytrian, just wanted to let you know that if the author blanks a page in his userspace, the page doesn't qualify for G7. Thank you :) -BRP ever 05:13, 20 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@BRPever: I would somewhat argue on this one though (although I still agree that G7 shouldn't apply to this one though but a G11). This is a perfect example of a spambot, who all they need is to improve their website's search engine optimisation. As long as the revision remains in the page history, their Google SEO gets improved and that's all they want (they may not even care if it gets blanked). SHB2000 (talk) 09:47, 20 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@SHB2000: I am aware of that, and am not against deleting the page for G11 if someone thinks the page qualifies. That being said, I am unsure how applicable G11 is in this case because if we are to consider SEO improvement as their advantage in all this, we would need to revdel all the revision consisting linkspam (which is nearly impossible and there isn't any criteria that allows it). BRP ever 11:27, 20 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@SHB2000: Do they revdel spam in other wikis? As far as I know only Indonesian wiki does that.-BRP ever 11:37, 20 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I do it on the English Wikivoyage, and I've seen a 'crat do it as well but haven't seen anyone else do it (but I'm one of the few people there who deals with spambots). But usually the page gets deleted and the user gets blocked with no TPA before that user gets time to blank their page so revdeling spam is quite rare. SHB2000 (talk) 11:42, 20 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
That's unusual for me. The policies here do not allow that, and as a GS, I am not comfortable revdeling spam. If any page has live spam, I remove/delete it depending on the circumstances. But for those that already have the spam removed from them, I don't think it's necessary. At the end, the goal is just to prevent abuse and remove anything potentially harmful and/or against the policy.-BRP ever 11:57, 20 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Sakura emad:. If you like travelling, feel free to come to the English Wikivoyage. We're just a bunch of friendly bunch of people improving travel info out there. SHB2000 (talk) 11:45, 20 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
i love to, but unfortunately i am not very familiar with and idk where to start. @SHB2000 🌸 Sakura emad 💖 (talk) 13:11, 20 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Most people usually just start by editing or updating on places they're familiar with (such as your hometown or a place that you're just really familiar with). The listing editor mostly helps in updating/adding listings, but if you do need any help, just feel free to ask me. SHB2000 (talk) 13:17, 20 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Umm, SHB... sakura ain't that great at English and this got her into trouble at en-wikipedia. Also, you really are using every opportunity for nefarious advertising, eh? /s 💠Ely - Talk💠 16:32, 20 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Yep. Also, where did she get into trouble on enwiki? SHB2000 (talk) 05:44, 23 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

RfD nomination of Patroller[change source]

An editor has requested deletion of Patroller, an article you created. We appreciate your changes, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article meets Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in the nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not").

Please comment on the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2021/Patroller and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also change the article during the discussion to address the nominator's concerns. But you should not remove the requests for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate. Thank you very much. Tsugaru let's talk! :) 01:55, 4 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

user page protection[change source]

Hey Elytrian. I noticed you're back now (welcome back Face-smile.svg), would you like your user page unprotected or reduced to semi protection, or would you like to keep the current full protection? --Ferien (talk) 19:35, 5 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

semi would be fine for now... 💠Ely - Talk💠 07:04, 6 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Dancing Molecules[change source]

I don't understand why you removed (only) the leading quotation marks in the dancing molecule article. The entire list is a quotation. Kdammers (talk) 21:40, 19 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Welcoming[change source]

Hello, please be careful welcoming if someone has not made many helpful edits yet. Sometimes, easy edits like welcoming are made to game the autoconfirmed system. This welcome was to someone blocked as a sockpuppet on enwiki who ended up making lots of disruptive edits. Thanks, --Ferien (talk) 11:29, 22 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I'm sorry, I had welcomed because of a good edit they had made. Also, I'm already autoconfirmed. 💠Ely - Talk💠 13:39, 22 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Oh I didn't see any edits they had made other than welcoming. I was talking about them welcoming lots of people to game the autoconfirmed system after they had been blocked on en... --Ferien (talk) 15:14, 22 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Thank you for participating![change source]

Among what I hope were many happy accomplishments this year, you also wrote many articles for the Wiki Loves Women edit-a-thon. Even those that did not qualify for the contest still made the Simple English Wikipedia a more gender-balanced place.

quick deletion for two discussion[change source]

i am a person who made two articles and i requested for quick deletion on two article. wiki user Hockeycatcat introduce you to me for quick deletion (here is what Hockeycatcat said: I’m sorry to hear about your condition, but I don’t think it’s my place to ask an administrator on your behalf. You could try asking User talk:Ferien or User talk:Elytrian yourself, or any other administrator of your choosing.) Mormonrocks (talk) 04:12, 25 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Hi there. Two things.
  • I am not an admin. Ferien is, and you can ask Ferien for undeletion.
  • If it is your article, you can delete it anytime using QD G7 unless other editors have worked on it. G4 does not apply unless it has already passed a RfD. The creator did not request the deletion, other editors did, so G7 does not apply.
I don't think I'm the right person to ask. 💠Ely - Talk💠 09:09, 28 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

comment at top[change source]

You might not want to have such a large comment at the top so this doesn't happen to the page if people misplace a post :P --Ferien (talk) 19:33, 25 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

hah... uh, I'll see what I can do. 💠Ely - Talk💠 08:54, 28 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
