IEP 2.0 proposal

I regret that it was necessary to join you and others in disagreement with the IEP 2.0 proposal.

In my opinion, a better start-up plan was used in an SEWP pilot program in Japan. I mentioned it here, but two sentences may have been overlooked in the wall of words:

"... a very different kind of strategy has marked the development of a pilot SEWP program at Tokyo Medical and Dental University (TMDU) here and here. Strategic planning and context-building here and here were quite distinct from the IEP 2.0 proposal."

I would have thought we want to find ways to build on what works well. --Horeki (talk) 15:39, 3 July 2012 (UTC)

Sorry, but I don't really get now what you want from me/what you want me to do. -Barras talk 18:06, 3 July 2012 (UTC)
With regret, I found that cumulative diffs persuaded me to express strong disagreement with the IEP proposal.

I didn't want to disagree; and I very much didn't like the sense of being pushed into it. For me, this becomes a challenge to try to fashion a more balanced response.

As a small step, I highlighted one plausible alternative? Could this be constructive? Could this have been overlooked? Perhaps this may trigger ideas about better ways to handle something similar in the future? I don't know. Maybe?

At this point, my guess is that the proponents of IEP 2.0 don't "get it"; and they're unlikely to pay attention to explaining in different words.

In frustration, I wondered if it might be more helpful to reach out to those few — like you — who parsed the relevant issues more quickly than I did.

Do you know the idiom "turn lemons into lemonade"? This is my small attempt to do something other than nothing. This is an attempt to say something other than "no".

I was thinking that "those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."

If this is an unwelcome intrusion, I will strike out my words. --Horeki (talk) 19:29, 3 July 2012 (UTC)

DEWP template

Will you take a look at Template:Olympiabilanz?

Please review the issues which are explained here.

Eptalon suggested that you may have a point-of-view about using this DEWP template?

For emphasis, I believe that this template is better than an infobox in the 200+ articles about teams which compete in the Olympics. --Horeki (talk) 20:27, 27 July 2012 (UTC)

I did the import from dewiki now. I do like the template, doesn't look bad. -Barras talk 21:10, 27 July 2012 (UTC)

I'm sorry for making multiple accounts without permission!

I am really sorry for making multiple accounts, I only meant that for hacker evasions! Can you unban Newman2 in a couple weeks?

I have blocked you on too, for the record. Your password should be strong enough to not warrant using multiple accounts.--Jasper Deng (talk) 02:06, 28 July 2012 (UTC)
I'm not spam. And that sock-puppetry thing was all my fault! And I need to be unbanned in six months. And also I might look forward to become a steward. Newman2 (talk) 20:22, 28 July 2012 (UTC)
