from Zzmonty change

I only changed 3 articles from the Sexuality project page (the first 3 on the first column). Maybe one or two on the last column. That is it. So you don't really need to write a bot. You can just manually change things back. Or you could just look up my change history. Excluding things I did in my own area, I have not done that many changes.

Don't automatically remove a category that only has 3 or 5 articles, because it may be a stub category. Zzmonty (talk) 12:26, 2 January 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Eptalon, I just did some more testing relating to category names and Vista parental controls. Look on Gwib's talk page for more details. Basically, Vista is too stupid realize that "Male Reproduction" and "Female Reproduction" are part of "Sex Education". When only those categories are listed, the Vista filters don't work. When I added the categories "Sex eduction" or "Vista sex education" the Vista Parental control filters worked. Actually, a person has to specifically select that they want to filter "sex education" websites.
This is the problem. If I make a category "sex education", it would see logical that there should be sub-categories. When that happens, your bot will remove the parent category "sex education" and the parental control filters will no longer work. I could create a special category called "Vista sex education". Then we can just state in that category that it is for parental controls, and not to create sub-categories.
What should we do? Should we create a stand alone category called "Vista sex education" or could you write it an exception for "sex education"? Also, if you already have a bot that looks at categories, would you be able to modify it to add one of the above categories?
I have already posted this question on Gwib's talk page. FYI: I am no longer looking into a any type of ratings, because that is not how the parental control software works. So it would not add a value either to the articles or to parental controls.
My problem is solved. I brought CYBERsitter for $40, and with the custom content filter feature, it is allowing me to have wikipedia function as I desire it to function. Basically, I told the program to filter everything on GWIB's Sexuality project plus a couple of more words he left out. The bottom line is that I am happy that my wikipedia is filtered, and everybody else is happy that their wikipedia is not filtered. Zzmonty (talk) 00:38, 8 January 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
My problem is not solved. I just left Simple Wikipedia -- threw in the towel. The Wikipedia categories are messed up. This is due to the fact prior to 2004, categories had to be restricted to make sure they did not become too large. In 2004, that code was fixed. Therefore, there is no real reason why an article cannot be in a child and a parent category, and there are very good reason for being in both. I have been doing a lot of research into this matter. This included looking at other classification systems including Universal Decimal Classification, Library of Congress Classification, Dewey Decimal Classification, and even coming up with something new. The main fact that all of these classification systems have and Wikipedia does not have is that any child category has a code at the beginning of it that indicates that parent category. Go to any library shelf and look at the books. The Dewey Decimal number indicates not only the child category, but the parent category as well.
If Wikipedia (or Simple Wikipedia) implemented a code system to indicate parent categories of children categories, it would make is easy to determine the parent category from the child category. Once the category names are cleaned up, third party applications can determine how to filter and to what extent.
You are trying to solve a problem that does not exist at a programming level. But maybe the code that you wrote could be used to tag child categories by their parent category according to some classification standard. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Zzmonty (talkcontribs)

Help! My popups seems to be malfunctioning. The quick revert popups tool doesn't seem to be functioning correctly. click here --§ Snake311 (I'm Not Okay!) 20:12, 9 January 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

You havent been around, I don't know what yours say; I don't have a monobook.js file, but I activated "Navigation popups (API)" in the Gadjets section of my settings. Do you perhaps have the deprecated version (which might clash with Monobook.js)? - If you want, you can get "rollback"..--Eptalon (talk) 20:18, 9 January 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

question change

I have read meta's checkuser policy and the criteria for adminship, but one thing I still do not fully understand is that why are checkusers required to give out identity and be over 18 to become a CU while other users, namely bureaucrats don't undergo the same operation? --§ Snake311 (I'm Not Okay!) 05:37, 13 January 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

B'crats don't have to deal with the privacy policy which could lead to potential legal issues while CU's do. The protection of personal data is the main reason for the WMF to ensure the identity of all people who have access to that information. --Creol(talk) 07:44, 13 January 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
CUs have legal obligations as to the confidentiality of the results they see. Legally, it is not possible to make such a contract with someone who is not an adult, in their legislation. Bureaucrats can promote users, and flag bots - nothing that you'd need to be legally adult to do. Crats cannot flag CheckUsers (thats an office action, IIRC). That over here, some of the crats are CUs is a coincidence. --Eptalon (talk) 09:46, 13 January 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

WP:PVGA change

It's time for Nudity to be closed!

I have closed the !voting, but wanted to ask this first: are neutral !votes counted as support, oppose or just not counted at all? I ask because a no-count or support would promote Nudity, an oppose would not.

Thanks,

You commented at the voting discussion for Wikipedia:Proposed_very_good_articles#Nudity_2.

Romania PVGA change

Hi there Eptalon. I have proposed Romania for VGA status after it got promoted to GA status because I believe that it is well on its' way to becoming a VGA. However, I am unsure about what needs to be done on the article because nobody seems to have given any hint as to what needs to be done to make Romania a VGA. Do you think that you could provide some much needed information as to what needs fixing or needs to be done to make Romania a Very Good Article?

Thanks change

I appreciate you taking the time to look at both sides of the story, and I appreciate your comments and realize any mistakes I have made. It made me think there are better ways to solve a problem, and to step back and be careful of inflaming the situation. I hope I can make some valuable contributions to Wik Sim/Eng. To let you know alot of my mistakes from Wik Eng, were from my not knowing the rules, I had friends help me edit a number of articles I created and b/c the edits were from the same ip, it gave the appearance of something called "sock-puppetry"..I did not know what this was until being accused of it, and things went downhill from there :O) I appreciate the helpful attitude of people around here.

thanks for all your help, could you also delete links PR has posted up? I feel that they invade my privacy. I would appreciate if you could do this.

Eastvillagegroupie (talk) 19:01, 14 February 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This behavior pattern is very similar to what she did on en.wiki. Remember, she connected Eastvillagegroupie to the Tweety21 en-account before I posted any links, she connected herself to other IPs through her editing on simple.wiki, and now she's complaining about her privacy being invaded. I do worry that it will escalate yet again. Precious Roy (talk) 21:03, 14 February 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This is ridiculous change

lets leave the past in the past, one last time! move on! seriously dude! done! fini! Eastvillagegroupie (talk) 21:17, 14 February 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

You're right, it is ridiculous—you're the one who brought all this up in the first place and now you're complaining about it. I said it before and I'll say it again: I am not trying to stop you from editing on simple.wiki. Period. I only want you to follow the rules.
Stop complaining about the links that are on here now—you connected Eastvillagegroupie to Tweety21 first, not me. Nobody cares about it as long as you aren't disruptive here on simple. Just let it go and realize that you (once again) have linked yourself to Tweety21. Let it pass and a few links to en.wiki won't be a big deal.

Block of 81.185.159.49 change

You blocked 81.185.159.49 for 6 months. Other than those two nonsense pages, his/her edits seem to be good faith. Is the IP related to a vandal or banned user?--≈  Fairfield  χ  19:21, 15 February 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It looked familiar (Mummy green or bald; I therefore concluded it was a spambot); I may have been wrong though.--Eptalon (talk) 20:48, 15 February 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

defining simple change

It seems to me that we agree that one thing needed to keep this WP running is to reach some workable definition of Simple, and help people to stick to it. I'll quote your last comment on a thread archived from the talk page:

(<-) TV/Movie, Gutenberg, Contemporary fiction, take 5k words each; gives you 15k words worst case, clean for duplicates, and proper names (first names, place names); we will probably be left with something between 5 and 7.5k words. Take the first half of these (2.5k-4k) and we will probably have a good list. --Eptalon (talk) 11:51, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

I have another proposal:

  • The 1000 words of the kernel Ogden Basic. Required by all dialects of Basic.
  • The 1000 Fry Instant Words. Recommended to all native readers.
  • The 1000 words required by all wiktionaries. All users have access to these definitions.
  • The mixed vocabularies of Special/ized English (VOA&FEBA: 1750 words). They provide working examples of "Simple English" for regular broadcasting.

If we provide a spellchecker for some Browsers to potential editors, all "nonsimple" words will be underlined in red, and users may act accordingly. I may send to you the sample list, if you ask me to. Lwyx (talk) 19:30, 15 February 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello there. First off: I am not a linguist, I am also not a native English speaker. We can of course always discuss how many words we take, but here is the rationale behind the choices:
  • English as a language is very present in the media. It is probably very easy to get CNN or other English-speaking TV channels; also Hollywood/Bollywood produce many movies in English (India has 23 official Indic languages, plus English). Therefore taking a wordlist that reflects TV/movie scripts is probably a good idea
  • The contemporary fiction reflects the "English-language" books of today (e.g. John Grisham). Such books are often available at airports and probably easy to get hold of.
  • Gutenberg represents the "literature" category; Books read at school (eg. William Golding) will probably fall into this category.
Please note that I expect these lists to overlap pretty much (That is: I would be surprised to get more than like "7.5k-8k" words when taking 5k words from each of the 3 wordlists).
Some other observations:
  • I don't claim my wordlists are the best choice; as I said, I am neither a linguist, not involved in language-teaching.
  • My approach is open: the basic idea is: take a number of words from wordlists that the "target" audience is most likely familiar with; its also open in that we can freely chose the wordlists, and number of words from each.
  • I did a Cambridge Cert. of Proficiency: Is there a way we can account for the fact that the English in India is noticeably different form that in South Africa, or that in Belize?
  • The basic idea: the words from the "resulting wordlist" do not need linking, as we can expect our audience to know them. All other vocabulary is fine as well, but the words used need explaining either in the article, or as linked explanation.
  • Our "wordlist" should probably be around 4-5k words.--Eptalon (talk) 21:16, 15 February 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • I concede most of the points you make. I'm not a native speaker either, but my experience in mentoring students of ESL (I teach phil for a living, but mentoring is part of my workload) is that the average intermediate reader has a vocabulary of around 2000-2500 words. That's the reading level of the Longman Simplified Series. That's why I thought about shooting for a slightly lower reading level. One advantage of these sources (Ogden, Fry, Special/ized) is that there are external resources for these word lists, so they're not "original research", so to say. In fact, Fry is recommended for the classroom and reading tests for native readers, and VOA and FEBA follow the kind of strategy you propose for ESL students: provide an online dictionary for their vocabularies, and explain on the run the newly introduced words. Links to the dictionary are even more practical on wikiprojects.--- On the other hand, I must say that writing for this lower level is extremely difficult---almost painful :-) Lwyx (talk) 00:04, 17 February 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Your "wordlist" gets to a 4750 words, at best; I have no idea, but i think we will have 50% or more overlap (which means between 2k and 2.5k words, for your approach). If we fill the remainder to the 5k words (meaning 2.5k ), we could take 1000 words each from the lists I proposed. Also such a project would be ideal to collaborate with Simple English Wiktionary (making sure the words we have in the wordlist are in fact all in SEWikt).--Eptalon (talk) 08:45, 17 February 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'll join in the discussion as you know that readability is one of my main interests - I thought about combining word lists to see what would happen. I have experimented with the "A"s. I put together the Ogden 850, with the combined list, the VOA list, and the 1000 words from modern books. Have a look at the result here User:Peterdownunder/wordlist. Having done it I'm not totally convinced that it is going to help. If the word lists get too big we may lose the simple english. I think we do need to do something, so of the recent comments are valid. Should we get the discussion onto the Simple talk pages, or do we need a separate discussion page to talk through the issues ?--Peterdownunder (talk) 09:37, 17 February 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi, do I just block the puppeteer now that it's confirmed or hold a ban discussion? It's my first sockpuppet :) fr33kman talk 00:05, 4 March 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This is just my opinion: Sockpuppetry per se is not bad (and not outlawed); and the "did not simplify an article they created" is a very weak thing to ban someone (for sockpuppetry). So, to extract yourself from the sling, you could try talking to that user; and talking to the community - to find a way to actually get a working solution...--Eptalon (talk) 00:09, 4 March 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Okay, I'm willing to do that, but this is all based on them being banned indef at enWP for using multiple accounts and ignoring requests to stop and be part of the community. They were banned there by community consensus. Thoughts? fr33kman talk 00:15, 4 March 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

(<-) Don't judge users by what they did elsewhere; I know of two people (one of them is an admin) that were/are banned at EnWP. Unless you find something to actually ban the user for here, I guess you need to consider unbanning. --Eptalon (talk) 00:20, 4 March 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

You mean unban the second account? fr33kman talk 00:25, 4 March 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I have unbanned the account. I personally think that the user will earn a ban here too; but I won't judge on enWP stuff then. I have also put their user pages back to the way they were originally. Cheers fr33kman talk 00:40, 4 March 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Can you also put a short note on their page, perhaps explaining, and apologizing? ;) --Eptalon (talk) 08:59, 4 March 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I don't feel an apology is warranted. I could have exercised the right of an admin to simply block a user banned at another WMF site as explained in WP:BLOCK. I have chosen not to. The user has been very disruptive at enWP, have committed GFDL infractions here, has created another user account that I feel was intended to use for sock-puppetry (which he has now asked to be deleted). The user vandalised at enWP, created a couple of dozen sock-puppets and said they were not him. I don't see where an apology is warranted, I really don't fr33kman talk 16:08, 4 March 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Algorithm change

Hello Eptalon. I saw you made the article called Algorithm. I wrote on the talk page. Will you please look? Teenly 21:20, 5 March 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I am sorry I did not answer until now. There was a lineup yesterday so I could not get the computer. Thank you thank you for the Barnstar! I have seen them before but I did not think I would have my own! I wrote something on the talk page. Teenly 21:53, 7 March 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I saw you changed the Bubble sort algorithm to put a flag in. That is what I was thinking about. If you have time, I wrote something on my Algorithm page where you left me a note on Wednesday. It is after the yellow part. Teenly 23:24, 13 March 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

World History change

Hi there Eptalon. I decided to take a stab at copyediting World History. I managed to copyedit a few of the sections, but the article is just too bloody long for me to copyedit the whole thing. I would recommend that you take a second look at the article and make links to wiktionary and look for other minor errors.

Also, read its' talk page, because I left a question there. Cheers, Razorflame 13:33, 10 March 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Quick revert to last good version change

Hi there, we were both trying to fix the Mugabe page at the same time, but you were quicker than me. What is the quick way to do it when you can't use rollback? Do I use this undo above the last good edit?--Peterdownunder (talk) 09:57, 2 April 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I saw a bot edit, and a number of IP edits; so I basically assumed that all the subsequent IP edits after the bot were bad ones (maybe even same user playing good guy/bad guy). What we can do now is check whether any of tzhe IPs actually added something. o, blocking the IP is not an option any more, IPs change, and that edit was like a week back. --Eptalon (talk) 10:02, 2 April 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Contents of Themis Music Talk Page change

Thanks for putting that on my talk page. That seems fairer! Hell. I don't want to do this wrongly. I think I have a valid article. :o) I may well be approaching it in the wrong category. The notability of this article has to do with the rapidly growing Wicca religion having a public entity advancing its beliefs. This is new for Wicca. Maybe I have titled the article wrongly. People keep bashing this issue around but the debate has centred on a musical band and not the fact that there is a music project done by some Wicca priests which significantly advances the concept of Wicca and gives Wicca greater notability and acceptance. We are talking about a religion wherein women who practiced homeopathy and herbal remedies were burned at the stake. Today a musical ensemble promotes Wicca openly for what it is: a nature based pagan religion. That's notable. There are no Wiccan Churches, Popes, Annual General Meetings; Ecclesiastical Conferences but there is a Music Band that promotes Wicca openly, widely, and in many different ways. Thanks again. Katie alsop (talk) 17:15, 7 April 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Have you ever tried the other way round, e.g. writing an article about Wicca music, and then mentioning that there are a few bands that spread the "message"; I konw a few bands from germany who claim to be pagan. You should probably also extend our Wicca article; what might be wrong as an article of its own might be perfectly fine in a section on Wiccan music (in Wicca). We are not against paganism/wicca, we are against content that is on the brink of notability. --Eptalon (talk) 17:21, 7 April 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Oh, just as a side note, I contributed a lot to witch and witchcraft articles, I know what you are talking about. --Eptalon (talk) 17:33, 7 April 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks. The Wicca Music article is already written. The Themis Band article should be notable by the standards because it is a band that plays at major national concerts (in Canada) and it is on the playlist of notable radio stations. I see that the Category really is the issue. Using the "music template" for example creates tensions and jealousies among other musicians and I guess might open a pandora's box. For example, MySpace was once a social networking forum and has now become a "pimp-my-band" whore house. Nobody wants that for Wikipedia. Katie alsop (talk) 03:15, 8 April 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
a few bands from germany who claim to be pagan is about the sum of it all. Thanks for that thought. I have seen as much. There aren't many purely "Wicca" bands. There is only one actually. Chalice and Blade comes close by their own admission but has mostly a broad pagan focus. Another thought about the modern movement's intellectuals is that they exist in a time post stem cell discovery whereas most people talking about Wicca on Wikipedia are speaking of it as if it is still in the era shortly after discovery of the wheel, and fire. If you are looking for an end to a patriarchal society (include Wikipedia) and saving the rain forest, join the modern (Themis-brand) Wicca movement. Remember that 'Themis' (the Goddess) was about balance and justice, putting the mother at the head of the famly and seeking a gender equality in life with justice, nurturing and mourishing for the "onesness" of all sentient beings. Clearly people working on these articles are on a different wavelength from the people who shred it who still think its about ego and a musical band, witches and witchcraft. To do otherwise is to admit a competitor for Christianity. I have seen a certain component of that. Be that as it may be I need help. I am sure I have approached it all wrong. I just need to keep trying. :o) Katie alsop (talk) 15:49, 12 April 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
What people call religion is to some extent about belief - No matter what religion you take, at some point the scientifically provable part will end, and you will be asked to subscribe to some form of believing something that cannot be proved by science. Wicca probably is a movement rooted in neo-paganism - it wants to go back to have stronger ties with nature. It probably bears little resemblance to what the witches did, and what they were burnt at the stake for. Personally, I am not looking at the end of a patriarchal society. There are times where decisions need to be taken, and the person taking the decision needs to have an authority to impose certain rules to be followed, without question. Whether the decision-taker is male or female is irrelevant. Men are physically stronger, so they often have had an easier time "convincing" others. What we were talking about here was a "music band" who through their music spread a certain message. The message may be more important than its carrier. Something else that may be important is the sex-appeal. If some rituals involve nude intoxicated young people dancing around a fire this may be an enticing thought. I guess this all boils down how you sell your idea to those people, who are used to (more-or-less) large crowds of more-or-less elderly people you find in the classical Christian Churches (which are probably the norm in most of the US and Europe). --Eptalon (talk) 16:11, 12 April 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

CB change

Hey Eptalon. I've gone through about 2/3 of the article and linked complex words, simplified prose where possible, and removed really in-depth material that probably isn't needed on this Wikipedia. How are we doing? The Rambling Man (talk) 20:54, 8 April 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Good job simplifying!! - Can the article be extended (compare to the English one which is a lot more complex). Can we justify removing the complex tag? --Eptalon (talk) 21:07, 8 April 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I feel happy that it's not complex any longer. However, yes, it can be expanded. Do you want to bring some detail (and citations) over, and I'll copyedit, simplify and rework references? The Rambling Man (talk) 21:08, 8 April 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Teenly change

Thank you protecting Teenly's User page, for giving her a Barnstar (she was very excited about that) and for taking the time to help her understand the "Algorithm" article. Her Teenly/Algorithm and Teenly/Sort pages show how hard she always tried to understand. Despite her exceptional intelligence she was never proud. She was such a good-hearted child, she saw everyone as her friend, and as a result most people were.

On her talk page you wrote that she died on the 10th of April. It was actually just before midnight on the night of April 6-7. I have corrected this. Fenneck (talk) 23:13, 11 April 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I think that no one in their right mind would vandalise a page of a user who died (it is just against piety, religious feelings, no matter what your religion happens to be), but I want to avoid hurting feelings, so I fully protected the page.
As to the barnstar, she really deserved it. The algorithm was there unchanged since 2005 - no one tried it. She did, and found out it did not work as expected. She might have been a child, but I suppose many adults also read that page - They did not try and and hence did not find the error (which I also did not know existed, btw). In my opinion she really deserved that barnstar for finding the error. That's how development happens in real life too, btw - you find that something does not work as expected, and fix it so it does...--Eptalon (talk) 23:23, 11 April 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hey Eptalon. I think you should, for the time being, attribute new articles you create, such as Cotton mouse to their en.wiki equivalent, on the talk page using the enwp-based template.

Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District change

Hi Eptalon. Looking at the references for this, it appears most of them are pointed at Wikisource. I'm not sure this is good enough, using another Wiki as a reliable source. I would think we should mandate the use of the actual source that Wikisource is using. What do you think? The Rambling Man (talk) 14:35, 4 May 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I have thought about this, and my conclusions are: Wikisource is probably good enough. This is about a court case, what you find in wikisource are the proceedings. I do not know the situation in the US, but over here, they would also be published "by the resp. court who took the decision". There might be problems though:
  • Very often, the proceedings are published as PDF files. This requires a PDF reader. I agree that PDF is perhaps the most common format out there to publish documents, and PDF readers both from Adobe, and more-or-less free alternatives are readily available. As a contrast, Wikisource documents are rendered in html and do not need such a reader. A way out of this might be to get a link to the original source, and specify that the document is also available in wikisource. In other words: the benefit of Wikisource is that it does not need additional software, the drawback is that as a wiki it may not be totally reliable.
  • Sometimes getting the original court documents requires the user to log in. In that case, Wikisource is preferable.
  • There may be different versions: Do we want the original proceedings, or given that we (at least I) are not lawyers some commented version? (Which might qualify as secondary source)?
What I pointed out is of course also valid for other sources, like scientific articles: Free sources (that do not require a login) are preferable to others. --Eptalon (talk) 07:46, 5 May 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
