You better pursue user[change source]


The user is abusive and you better forward this AFTER YOU HAVE SEEN THE PROOF. Dbrodbeck is a self admitted "socket puppeteer, and has been caught"

Scandals involving administrators and arbitrators Further information: Wikipedia:Requests for de-adminship § Cases Wikipedian David Boothroyd, a Labour Party member, created controversy in 2009, when Wikipedia Review contributor "Tarantino" discovered that he committed sockpuppeting, editing under the accounts "Dbiv", "Fys" and "Sam Blacketer", none of which acknowledged his real identity. After earning Administrator status with one account, then losing it for inappropriate use of the administrative tools, Boothroyd regained Administrator status with the "Sam Blacketer" sockpuppet account in April 2007.[122] Later in 2007, Boothroyd's Sam Blacketer account became part of the English Wikipedia's Arbitration Committee.[123] Under the Sam Blacketer account, Boothroyd edited many articles related to United Kingdom politics, including that of rival Conservative Party leader David Cameron.[124][125] Boothroyd then resigned as an administrator and as an arbitrator.[126][127]

Drodbeck is the latest administrator under sockpuppeting. He is under review for many inappropriate edits. A Canadian lawyer

has been contacted to take perhaps the most serious legal action ever seen in the history of Wikipedia. "Depending on the time and length as well as abuse, "Drodbeck" could see a serious fine as well as community service along with his removal of Psychology Professor at Algoma University. Professors taking advantage of their power is rampant and we are well aware of this monster."

"We need to make an example of someone who has been given power on such powerful and life changing subject as HIV. What "Dbrodbeck has done, (Real name: Dave Brodbeck) is criminal and he will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of American and Canadian laws."

              "Yobol" seen here is actually "Dbrodbeck"

Dbrodbeck admits here to writing under other accounts:

Why am I always YOUR sockpuppet?[edit]

Why am I always your sockpuppet? Why can't I be the sockpuppeteer for once? The injustice of it all! Yobol (talk) 16:23, 9 December 2014 (UTC)

Well, if we let that secret out they would find out about our ties to Aspartame/MSG/Morgellons/MMR Vaccines/Monsanto, and now I've said too much...... Dbrodbeck (talk) 16:25, 9 December 2014 (UTC) It seems now that the IP knows that Zad68 is another one of my sock puppets...... [1]. Dbrodbeck (talk) 16:37, 9 December 2014 (UTC)

Here is another liable exchange between two (editors)

                       Dave Brodbeck is out of control

Read the sockpuppetry on page and PURSUE IT...Do NOT erase until you see evidence. Thank you[change source]

Warnings for bad Commons links[change source]

Rus, I have removed the warning you left for IP user It looked like you left it because the user put a Commons link in an article when there wasn't anything at Commons. The warning you gave, the one for wrong information, does not fit that. That warning is for adding statements that aren't true. If you want to caution the user about the bad Commons links, you need to write the warning yourself. If you do that, be careful how stern you are, because that isn't something we would block the user for. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 16:08, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

It may be a moot point then. You've politely warned the user before not to add nonexistent commons categories. As you can see so did I. Still, the user keeps doing it. Rus793 (talk) 16:34, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
Yes, I think the editor's English may be so poor that he/she doesn't understand the warning. While that Commons link thing isn't bad enough to block for, the general poor quality of the articles might be. We'd just need to figure out the proper progression of warnings for that. By the way, do you know what kind of study "nunny" might be? I find a slang definition online, but I'm not sure if it's related to the intended meaning here. --Auntof6 (talk) 22:47, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

Daniel Boone[change source]

Hi, Rus. If you remove a dead link in a reference, please try to find a reference to replace it, especially when it's the only reference in the article. We already have too many unreferenced articles, and leaving a dead link might give someone a starting point for finding a good link. If you really can't find a replacement, please don't leave an empty reference section in the article. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 16:06, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

We missed each other by a few minutes. That's exactly what I was in the process of doing. As I'm sure you know, sourcing with reliable sources sometimes takes some time. Anyway, if you recheck, you'll see at least three sources with more to follow. Thanks Rus793 (talk) 16:38, 13 September 2014 (UTC)
OK, sorry I missed that! --Auntof6 (talk) 17:18, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

Mary of Eu[change source]

Thank you on your edit of Mary of Eu!--Mychele Trempetich (talk) 17:06, 20 September 2014 (UTC)

Oops, I didn't see this until now. You're welcome. The information was some I had from a much earlier project on her family. If you find yourself in a library that has The Complete Peerage by Cokayne (second edition), check the cited volume and page. There is probably more detail on her in that work that I didn't copy at the time. Check the footnotes also. Good luck with your articles. Rus793 (talk) 15:30, 2 October 2014 (UTC)

Category:Pages needing to be simplified from September 2014[change source]

I see that you created this category. This is one that needs parameters specified with the template {{MonthlyCleanupCat}}. I have added the needed parameters. When you create a category that uses that template, please preview the category before saving it. If you look at the categories at the bottom of the page, you'll see a redlinked one if the template needs more parameters. If it does, just look at a similar category to see how it was coded. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 00:52, 21 September 2014 (UTC)

please put a stop to this ip vandal. --Wui389 (talk) 15:36, 29 September 2014 (UTC)

First Battle of the Masurian Lakes[change source]

Good job wnat you did there with the main strategy and photos and etc. But I think you omited some points in the aftermath that I did mention on the first version, that the troops that were sent from the Western Front, to help on this battle, the Wilhem 2 bad luck thing after this battle, and the thing that the Germans had lost their main railroad system when they won the battle. But otherwise good job. --XKiller59 (talk) 02:48, 2 October 2014 (UTC)

I wasn't able to source these statements as-written so I didn't use them. In most cases what I did use came from more than one reliable third-party source. Given more time (which I didn't have) I may have been able to find source citations for some of these omitted statements as well. The cited sources said François's disobedience occurred during the earlier battle of Tannenberg and not the First Masuarian. So that was changed accordingly. I also didn't intend this to be a finished article, just an improvement. I started editing it just to be able to mark it patrolled. It's an interesting subject and I went a bit farther with the pictures and such. Feel free to continue editing but I hope you'll also continue citing sources in the same style as used. Google books and JSTOR provided most of the source materials. I used one web source that I found had good information but otherwise I kept to books and journal articles. Anyway good luck with this article. If I can help, just ask. Rus793 (talk) 12:25, 2 October 2014 (UTC)
Ok is that some things are for real, but as I said it came from my book, so thank you. And also WW1 is such and interesting topic as seen how both sides could have easily won the war in 1918, while ww2 the war was already over for the Germans since the Nortn Afircan campaighn victory by the allies. --XKiller59 (talk) 23:49, 2 October 2014 (UTC)

Elinor Wylie[change source]

I found the NYT death notice published the day after she died ( It says stroke. Maybe an autopsy over-turned that or maybe...? also says stroke. Their only biographical source is The New Republic, the archives to which I do not have access.Kdammers (talk) 08:19, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

Generally, an obituary trumps a later secondary source as to the cause of death and they’re usually based on accurate and reliable sources. So I’d go with the cause of death in the obituary and cite it as a source. Nice find. Rus793 (talk) 12:42, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

Article[change source]

Hi Rus, I'm Amanda, I was wondering whether you would like to create an article with me? Thanks, Amanda Call Me 15:15, 11 November 2014 (UTC)

Sure, always happy to work with other editors on articles. I probably wouldn't be quite as much help with heavy metal bands or computer games. But I've worked with a wide range of subjects. I assume you have something in mind; would this be a transwikied article or an article from scratch? Thanks Rus793 (talk) 17:31, 11 November 2014 (UTC)
Okay! Super! I was wanting to make a bunch of Scarus articles from scratch, like I made this one, Scarus ghobban.Amanda Call Me 18:58, 11 November 2014 (UTC)
It looks interesting, did you want to start on Scarus ghobban? I'd suggest switching from this talk page to email, but I'm currently having trouble with getting my email address confirmed in the settings. So for now we can keep it here. Rus793 (talk) 22:22, 11 November 2014 (UTC)
I gave it a few basics; upgraded the bare url, gave it an image (feel free to change it), italicized the title, added a commons template and categorized it. It would probably be good to know what your thoughts and plans for this are. I'd suggest copying a couple more sections from enwiki, simplifying and wikifying as needed. Then base anything else on sources. Rus793 (talk) 22:58, 11 November 2014 (UTC)
Sorry for the late response. I get off at 5:00pm. All that sounds good. The ICUN Redlist website is filled with information about animals.Amanda Call Me 14:07, 12 November 2014 (UTC)
I added sections and text from the enwiki article and added more text from the sources. All sources are named refs so if you want, you can use the shortcut refs for anything else you'd like to add. I'll go ahead and add the attribution statement to the talk page. Rus793 (talk) 16:26, 12 November 2014 (UTC)
Hi Amanda, I hadn't heard anything regarding changes to the article. It's ready for you to add any other information using the sources in the article or new sources. Anything else you'd like me to do with the article just ask. Thanks Rus793 (talk) 13:42, 14 November 2014 (UTC)
Sorry again for no response. I've been kind of busy with my schoolwork and other stuff. I plan on really contributing to the article space next week.Amanda Call Me 13:46, 14 November 2014 (UTC)

No problem. Just wanted to know where the project was at and you answered my question, thanks. Rus793 (talk) 13:50, 14 November 2014 (UTC)

Hey, I was thinking, maybe you want to make band articles too?Amanda Call Me 15:34, 17 November 2014 (UTC)
Are you intending to do articles or stubs? You haven't said how exactly I can help though. I guessed and did some basic editing to the one article. Then I left it for you to add more text and perhaps give me some feedback on what area I could best help in. Let me know when you're finished with it and we can start another. When you're ready pick a subject and we'll see what information is available. Rus793 (talk) 17:42, 17 November 2014 (UTC)

Typo fixing[change source]

I've been working on the articles in Category:Articles with broken file links. One of the articles was Girona Cathedral. I noticed that in this edit where you were fixing misspelled words, one of the changes was to fix a misspelled word in the name of a file. I know you might be aware already, but just in case you aren't, when a misspelled word is part of a file name you just have to use it as it is and not "fix" it. Don't feel bad, though -- I've gotten caught by this kind of thing several times, too! --Auntof6 (talk) 01:04, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

Regression towards the mean[change source]

Hello Rus793, I think I have finished with my edits for now. I am aware that the hisotry section I took can still use some simplification, though... --Eptalon (talk) 21:11, 4 December 2014 (UTC)

I just added section headings and a few links. Rus793 (talk) 16:45, 6 December 2014 (UTC)

Michael Dibdin[change source]

Hello Rus793, You nominated the article for QD, but I have removed the template, as the article reads easy enough. Please go through a regular deletion if you still think the article should be deleted. Thanks --Eptalon (talk) 11:02, 9 December 2014 (UTC)

Request for undeletion of the article [change source]

I believe I have made enough simplication from the article in the English Wikipedia. "Dessert" has been simplified to "sweet food" and "spherical" has been simplified to "round", etc. The only difficult word is "glutinous", but that is the name of a plant, and therefore it is impossible to simplify, I have already checked that any other words are in the word list of BE 1500 except the names of places. As a result, it shouldn't be deleted. -- Yejianfei (talk) 15:09, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

The article has already been deleted for the reasons given, but you can resubmit it. See the guideline: Wikipedia:How to copy from another Wikipedia. We are a different Wikipedia and we have a different readership than the English Wikipedia. As much as possible, we try to use Simple English words and simple sentence structure in articles. More complex words can be linked to other Simple English articles or to the Simple English Wiktionary. The underlying idea is to help readers who are new to the English language, understand the articles. See the guideline Wikipedia:How to write Simple English pages for more information. As a suggestion, first copy the article you want to simplify into your sandbox and work on it there before submitting it. If you have any questions, you can ask them at Simple Talk. Rus793 (talk) 16:28, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
The reason is completely unreasonable. I have already made enough simplication. -- Yejianfei (talk) 14:10, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

Smurfs[change source]

Not enough notable, here too articles about Smurfette and Papa Smurf and it nobody bother. So why you delete myarticles about further notable characters from this serial.--Smurf Toma646 (send me mail | talk) 09:37, 2 January 2015 (UTC)

When something is important enough to be the subject of an encyclopedia article it is said to be notable. Notability is determined by how much coverage a subject gets in “reliable secondary sources that are independent of the subject”. The source citations themselves, in addition to showing notability, must be ones that a reader can easily find in order to verify a statement or statements in the article. For example, what books are written about Vanity Smurf? What journal, magazine or newspaper articles? What reliable web pages? The criteria for what makes a source reliable is found in Wikipedia:Reliable sources. The articles you started did not provide any proof that they were notable. The article on the cartoon series The Smurfs seems to be notable, which is why the stub articles were redirected to that article. It is also doubtful that enough information can be found on one Smurf character to make an entire article about them. These were stub articles and did not seem to have any (full) article potential. I added some information about Vanity Smurf at the Smurfs article with a source citation as an example. So instead of a collection of stubs, we can have a good article on the Smurf characters. I'll help move some of the information there. Feel free to edit information about the characters there. Rus793 (talk) 14:34, 2 January 2015 (UTC)
Something you might find helpful is the article at the English Wikipedia: List of The Smurfs characters. While English Wikipedia articles are usually too complex for Simple English Wikipedia, you might want to copy and simplify some of the information on the characters found there. Good luck in your editing here. Rus793 (talk) 14:45, 2 January 2015 (UTC)

Help[change source]

I am creating the pages for the subsequent Power Rangers seasons at the moment and I don't know how to cite sources (put a [1] next to a sentence and have that link on the external links part). Can you please help me? (talk) 00:11, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

Sure, I'd be happy to help you. But let's take this to your talk page. That way you have control of the conversation, when it gets archived or deleted. OK? Rus793 (talk) 00:32, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

Alright. Thanks! (talk) 22:42, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

Forgot I had an account...aanyways here's my talk page. Let's talk on there. ToQ100gou2 (talk) 22:45, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

Have you ever considered going for adminship here? Eurodyne (talk) 04:47, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

No, I really haven't. I’m pretty comfortable with what I’m doing and I don’t envy the responsibilities a sysop has to take on. Rus793 (talk) 15:01, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
