discussion on historical groups

Please see here my reasoning regarding why a vote which is not legitimate is not counted. It is an admin function and I do this with every vote that is done this way, which happens too fucking much for something so simple. Undo again, you can consider the action taken to vandal banning where it can be handled there. And again, the notion that I only do it for people that vote against me is a laugh. Grow up. -- ϑanceϑanceevolution 02:20, 1 April 2011 (BST)

I considered it laughable when you levelled it against me, too, but you seemed to be taking it seriously, which is why I said it in jest today. Guess I touched a nerve? Ease up, man, taking things this seriously is not good for you. ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 03:28, 1 April 2011 (BST)
It's my job and it's a very easy rule to follow, yet people can't and I become the bad guy for asking them to do it properly. Months of it just becomes annoying. -- ϑanceϑanceevolution 03:32, 1 April 2011 (BST)
Dude. The reason literally every other wiki I've ever used accepts correctly marked-up {{unsigned}} votes is that to use them correctly you have to look up the edit in the page history: you know, the thing that is the actual record of their edit? The signature is just a formality.

Before blindly following "the rules", a good administrator should look at what rules actually exist as well as why they exist and whether they could be improved. If it's so annoying, do something about it! ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 03:37, 1 April 2011 (BST)
But that's not completely accurate, people in different timezones may have different things in their preferences and that gives people different personal times that an edit time happened, dealing with it just becomes a nuisance. that's not even taking into account the potential for false timestamping (though there's no real reason it would happen bar trying to slip votes in early). Personally, I have nothing wrong with the rule. It's simple, it is a very easy rule to follow, and you don't blame the rule when there are people who can't do it and get aggressive over it; you blame the people I guess.
Either way, you were right about things getting personal, it was never my intention but sometimes things can get out of control, as they did, so I'm sorry about that. -- ϑanceϑanceevolution 03:44, 1 April 2011 (BST)
There are tools to easily convert, and I just use UTC most places anyway because it's simpler. Timestamps are best checked on History in any case. Short of Oversight or deletion, history never lies. The reason I am opposed to this petty bureaucratic bullshit is it's completely unnecessary and works to make the wiki actively more hostile to new users. Small wonder the game is dying…
Apology accepted. Thank you. :) And please, believe me when I say that I am sincere in my good intentions. ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 03:49, 1 April 2011 (BST)
Sorry I forgot to note, but the timezone changes alter how the times appear in history too, I'm very sure. That's the problem, and already you're talking about getting converter tools for something that is much more reliably and easily executed by having one guy do (~~~~). And striking one single vote isn't something I'd bet would scare off a newbie, as much as the douchebags that used to roam this place and make it hard for them. I dunno. Might have to be one of the agree to disagree things but so far I'm fine with enforcing the rules to a point of uniformity among votes and signatures. -- ϑanceϑanceevolution 03:54, 1 April 2011 (BST)
That's why I have my prefs set to use server time. Again, it's really no big deal – just fix it if someone fucks it up! It's a wiki, FFS, this is what they're excellent at! Big Grin :D And seriously, if you wanna hear the real scoop on wiki-friendliness, listen to Jorm sometime. ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 03:58, 1 April 2011 (BST)

are you against us moving some of our extraneous discussion to the talk?

I was thinking the same myself, but, like you, didn't want to move unilaterally.

Just thought I'd clarify my beliefs here in the hope that we don't have to keep going back-and-forth on the admin pages. Basically, templated signatures are allowed and have been for years because they cleanup code and allow signature changes to be retroactive.
Yes, {{Nosubst}} is hack to get around the software but it's a hack which is easier than trying to get Kevan to change the wiki settings and it doesn't particularly break anything.
If we want to ban templated signatures on the wiki, then I believe we should go about it like this:

  1. Make a policy on signature length - to prevent the clutter of massive substituted sigs.
  2. Make a policy banning the use of templated signatures.
  3. Delete {{Nosubst}} after 1) and 2) have been done.

The reasoning: Templated sigs prevent massive quantities of clutter in the page code. The reason that other Wikis can do without them so effectively is that they limit signature length. If we want to do without templated signatures then that should really include a requirement for shorter signatures.

If you just want to get rid of the ugly hack that is {{Nosubst}} then I would suggest we should:

  1. Persuade Kevan to add $wgCleanSignatures = false; to the settings file.
  2. Delete the template after Kevan has made the change.

--The General T Sys U! P! F! 13:22, 2 May 2011 (BST)

Ah, right. Well, we effectively have a limit on normal signature length now with the new wiki software version (255 chars, I believe), and a lot of users have already made the switch so as to reduce the load on various high-use pages. Passing a signature amendment policy is probably a better way to go about it, yeah; I was unaware that the original status quo permitted un-SUBST'd templated sigs. (History doesn't go back that far in most cases.) ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 13:36, 2 May 2011 (BST)
Yes, but people can still use templates to get around it. Given that {{Goonsig}} takes up about 9 lines of code then I would suggest that we need a policy in order to actually enforce it. Yes, lots of wiki history is lost by the fact that the history archives are purged, which sometimes makes it difficult to determine why a lot of stuff is done the way it is.--The General T Sys U! P! F! 13:50, 2 May 2011 (BST)

Here's a thought…

What wouldn't be allowed
  • Signatures which generally break the wiki in some way either through formatting or other means.

Other means, like bypassing an inbuilt software restriction? ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 13:44, 2 May 2011 (BST)

Only problem is that templated sigs don't actually break the wiki.--The General T Sys U! P! F! 13:50, 2 May 2011 (BST)
Actually, on many occasions they do, they constantly break inclusion limits and they're the only vehicle for signatures that can actually crash pages. There's not really anything good that comes from them, the code spam being prevented has a downside, it's that the limits on code length put in place to prevent stuff like Jedaz's evil text are removed.--Karekmaps 2.0?! 13:54, 2 May 2011 (BST)
It doesn't happen that often because most pages are archived off before we get to the limit. As for code spam, I'm pretty sure that the template inclusion limits prevent Jedaz's evil text from working anymore?--The General T Sys U! P! F! 14:15, 2 May 2011 (BST)
Actually I had to go on a template reduction spree because half the sysops were using templated sigs and breaking the required functionality templates on pages like A/VB. It happens frequently enough that if templated sigs were done away with it would have a noticeable effect on the administration pages at the very least. --Karekmaps 2.0?! 14:09, 2 May 2011 (BST)
Generally no because standard templates do that too, practically yes though. One user tried to use a templated sig to crash pages on load iirc because they allow basically unlimited size inclusions(to a point) they can easily be abused to break shit. --Karekmaps 2.0?! 13:54, 2 May 2011 (BST)
It should be noted that that problem has since been fixed.--The General T Sys U! P! F! 14:01, 2 May 2011 (BST)
Not so much, just now it takes images I'm pretty sure. --Karekmaps 2.0?! 14:09, 2 May 2011 (BST)

Also, another note: just deleting the page doesn't solve the problem because there's nothing to stop someone just recreating it in their userspace. I'm actually currently considering writing some code so that my sig is substituted in on some pages and not on others...--The General T Sys U! P! F! 14:01, 2 May 2011 (BST)

If anyone has any hints on how to do this without using parserfunctions then it would be much appreciated.--The General T Sys U! P! F! 14:13, 2 May 2011 (BST)
{{if equal}} should help but, I think you'd have to use the if template in your user preferences and would likely hit the 255 character limit. You'll want to play around with magic words that determine the namespace. UDWiki is namespace 4. The "ns" magic word you'd use is {{ns:4}} which produces UDWiki. That's probably a pretty good starting point. Basically a if statement that uses one sig if on ns4 and another sig if otherwise. It would be best I think if both sigs have their own template. ~Vsig.png Amurica. Fuck. Yeah 17:52, 2 May 2011 (UTC)
I think I've got something that works, using {{Switch}}. Code is located here: User:The General/sig/switch. I found that using the "if" statements resulting in the if templates themselves being substituted onto pages--The General T Sys U! P! F! 18:16, 2 May 2011 (BST)

Testing. ~Vsig.png Amurica. Fuck. Yeah 18:10, 2 May 2011 (BST)

Well that sort of works but the {{if equal}} template would need to be NOSUBST'd I think. ~Vsig.png Amurica. Fuck. Yeah 18:12, 2 May 2011 (BST)
I tried using NOSUBST on the if equal template in my preferences and I hit the character limit. Maybe it can be trimmed down to work but in theory {{SUBST:NOSUBST|if equal|{{SUBST:ns:4}}|UDWiki|{{subst:User:Vapor/sig}}|{{SUBST:NOSUBST|{{SUBST:User:Vapor/sig}}}}}} should work. ~Vsig.png Amurica.

According to UDWiki:Moderation/Policy Discussion: "This wiki attempts to work on the same guidelines as most wikis - policy is made by the users, not by the gatekeepers. In light of this, here is the place for people to discuss hot-topics regarding what we should consider acceptable and unacceptable. The community should keep track of what's going on here, and work to ensure that any guidelines or policy statements are indicative of the general mood described here." Technically, the policy discussion page states that policies are decided by the community and not by the sysops, and since there isn't a specific rule/guideline/policy/criteria for removing humorous policies (like we do for suggestions), so its removal shouldn't be allowed. There is a precedent of reverting a policy that changes mid-vote, but that doesn't invalidate the whole policy. If the user wanted the policy to change, then they could either withdraw it to change and cause a re-vote, or let it go through as originally written. Now, I could see an argument of Vandalism, as the creation of the policy could be argued to not be a good faith edit, however, I don't recall a specific policy that the creation of a policy like this violates (after all, the Stop Making Stupid Policies did not pass). If a ruling of vandalism is the case, then one could also argue this edit was not an edit in good faith, as the edit prior to it stated the intent to just mess with the proposed policy document instead of striking the policy (recall a recent case over messing with policy documents). --Akule Maker of fine, hand-crafted UDWiki sass since 2006 -- Akule School's back in session™ 21:13, 22 May 2011 (BST)

The signatures being used by members of The Dead are clearly intended to irritate and/or obfuscate who is who and frankly the crap makes editing pages far less pleasant.

Either you start the process needed to remove the scheduled deletion of deleting user page redirects, or you accept it the way it is. Don't try to game the system by using an disambig instead.

Bad example. Not sure what Misanthropy was thinking, I suspect he meant it was a mainspace article which would be okay, but it was not, it's listed as a disambiguation page and not as a mainspace article. Remember that a disambig is basically an overview of conflicting redirects. As for Karlsbad, view the undeletion history here. As for good-faith, please don't start bullshitting me. We have a clear scheduled deletion on this and trying to bypass it does not constitute good-faith. -- Cat Pic.png Thadeous Oakley Talk 10:22, 12 June 2011 (BST)
Nice try! Now let's look at why you're wrong: The deletion schedule is for redirects. A disambiguation page is not a redirect; it is a collection of similarly-named pages relevant to the subject. This is literally what disambig pages are for, and do not come under that schedule. ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 10:44, 12 June 2011 (BST)
Le sigh. I could argue that a disambig does fall under that schedule since it's just an extra step in the redirect process but God knows you'd wouldn't quit. Why don't you just try to remove that scheduled deletion that you dislike so dearly? If you provided some good arguments I think you'd have a good case to push it through. Instead you seem more keen to find ways to get around established rules instead of changing them. Zucht. -- Cat Pic.png Thadeous Oakley Talk 11:04, 12 June 2011 (BST)

Actually most all of them apply since there's pretty much one for anything. They're guideline articles that exist solely to give a more developed and reasoned stance to certain consensus arguments. As is though this doesn't really fall under, say WP:POINT, I disrupted him and basically triggered a discussion on redirects and disambiguation pages. More relevant to this particular discussion are WP:CCC and WP:Cheap while I get the feeling that Oh I say, what are you doing? Come down from there at once! Really, you're making a frightful exhibition of yourself. while relevant to past protests of this rule isn't quite the case here. For those that don't know Here are Relevant points of discussion that led to it being escalated to a scheduled deletion instead of a simple speedy deletion crit. Also found this--Karekmaps 2.0?! 06:30, 13 June 2011 (BST)
No matter how great or wise they are they are used selectively by certain people as per their own interpretations of the situations which may be- and are probably- wrong interpretations. So, like how they are commonly pulled out of context in a fray to feign legitimacy of someone's views, I tend to exercise my right to completely disregard them in any situation, whether they support my opinions or not, and rely on the context of the situation at hand rather than a pre-written wikipedia message that some random guy deemed necessary to bring up. Good to see revenant doing the 'disregard' thing too, though only when used against him, but its at least halfway towards what I'd ideally like seeing.
As for the redirect discussion, I don't have much to say. I'm indifferent on the whole thing though if pressed I'd see the rule gone, but yeah I don't really care as not having userpage redirects isn't hurting anyone. But yeah, I didn't come here to enter the userspace redirect fray or I'd have addressed it. Just wanted to add onto rev's call on thad, to which I reply, you're the one disregarding use of them at will, so I'd argue that you're the one learning! *smug* -- ϑanceϑanceevolution 07:28, 13 June 2011 (BST)
Actually this looks like it could make an interesting arbitration case if either of you are interested in pursuing it. I'd be more than glad to arbitrate. Also worth adding that Disambiguation pages may have reason to be considered as soft redirects. All of that being said it does look that the consensus has significantly changed since the original cases that led to this schedule and it's certainly worth giving it a second look.
The ironic thing? If the scheduled deletion is revoked there'd be a pretty legit argument behind keeping the disambig page there over a redirect to rev's page. Ouch. -- ϑanceϑanceevolution 07:28, 13 June 2011 (BST)


Any particular reason why you felt the need to restrict my access on the PKA boards? It couldn't possibly be because I publicly disagreed with you, cos that would be a rather personal & petty reason, and you're above all that, eh? Enighten me please if you would, thank you. ~ Kempy

Strangely, the same happened over night to all Cobra members registered on the PKA after I had disagreed with you.
Recruitment Policy: Must be a member of an independent PKer Group.

PKA wiki page

The problem in the past has been the bounty hunters turning us against one another. We've been unable to see the truth, because we've been fighting for ten squares in a suburb - our suburbs, our little piece of suburbs. That's crap, brothers. The suburbs is ours by right because it's our turn. All we have to do is keep up the general truce. We take over one suburb at a time. Secure our malls, secure our suburbs, because Malton is all ours.

PKA wiki page

I'm sure you can explain how banning the currently 2nd largets PKer group is in line with the conception of the PKA, rather than something done to push through unrelated personal agendas. (Oh, and as a bonus, even our member Cutey got restricted, who hasn't even ever posted anything on the PKA apart from her access request. You believe in punishment by association, eh?) -- Spiderzed 22:48, 11 June 2011 (BST)

I've banned nobody; I've merely removed security access from those who've opted out of the current operation. It will be restored after said operation's completion.

Bear in mind that I'm not sure exactly how user masks are set up (IPB forums are fucking awkward with permissions management), so it's possibly I've inadvertently placed more restrictions that I was aware of. What can you see/not see?

It was not my intent to remove right of reply, merely to comply with your wishes. If you don't want to discuss tool usage (which apparently neither of you do, as you did not reply to my most recent replies of over a week ago), clearly it would be of no use to continue said discussions. Or have I misinterpreted you? ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 06:01, 12 June 2011 (BST)

Also, why post here rather than sending me an email reply or, y'know, a post or PM on the forum? Eyebrow raise You're lucky I happened to be checking the wiki. ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 07:58, 12 June 2011 (BST)
You had PMed me the last time on June 8. The answer is in my PM outbox since June 10, and has been unread by you since then. First, it's not my fault if you don't read your PMs, and second, a week wouldn't have passed until it is June 15. Would have PMed you again, but looking at how long it was unread, I figured it might be better to pester an active crat on his talk page. Additionally, I figured you would just have the PKA's best interests at heart, and thus not have a problem defending your decision in a place where the broader PKer public (whose interests the PKA serves) can see it, rather than behind closed door.
As for access, I'm limited to
  • General Alliance Info
  • The Killers' Den
  • Public Forum
  • Murder Nucleus
  • Garbage
  • PKA Archives
  • United PKers of Rolt Heights
Seem to me just to be the public boards.
And yeah, while we might not be part of the current op, there's still a.) the possibility of a separate op organized by Cobra that needs to be advertised by us on the PKA and b.) my involvement in ZHU, which has often been enhanced by screenshots and hints from the PKA. Given the area the current op is staged in, I have no doubt there will be zerging by the local survivor population, zerging which's detection might depend on another set of eyes seeing it in time. Would be a shame if the hints would be seen with weeks of delay and if the window of opportunity would close before the op's end, wouldn't it?
Plus, there is no precedent of people being restricted from the PKA but for the most severe reasons (like being caught zerging). Even in the ACC hunt, members of their alt PKer group had still full access to the PKA and had regularly logged in, and their interests were much more conflicted than our mere disinterest. Do you really trust ACC more than us or Kempy? Eyebrow raise -- Spiderzed 12:23, 12 June 2011 (BST)
OK, that mask is definitely not working as intended. I'll take a look and fix.
I had to take a look across a bunch of forums before I figured out which you meant. FYI: black on dark blue is not good design and meant I had no idea I had a new PM because I couldn't read the notification text. Might want to look at that. ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 22:19, 12 June 2011 (BST)
Also, I don't trust ACC at all, as I don't know them at all. If you could please confine your criticism of my administrative choices to the times when I was actually in an administrative position, this discussion will be a lot more fruitful. Icon rolleyes.gif (That said, I don't care what alts somebody has, as long as they aren't zerging or passing on classified information from their alt access. I'm sure you can see how this situation differs.) ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 22:40, 12 June 2011 (BST)
For the sake of clarity: I was referring to replies in the PKA thread. Which, I might add, is still open and awaiting reply, unlike the thread on the Cobra forums, which was closed by one of your mod staff. Also, again, apparently unlike Cobra, I'm not afraid of having people retain the right of reply.

Bear in mind that 1) your permissions were never restricted (nor would they have been), and b) I literally (as in, really) only made the group hours ago in response to Kempy & Spiderzed's complains that their access was broken, (and it's got nothing substantial in there yet). So, as you can see, I actually haven't posted much at PKA, mostly due to lack of positive (or any apart from the usual vocal minority Icon rolleyes.gif) response… there's more at Red Rum, which I'm fairly sure you still have access at?

Doesn't matter, common sense exemption. Aichon made it in his namespace because it's his project, much like swier with project imagine( the source of things like iwitness, dirt:nap, etc.) --Karekmaps 2.0?! 10:24, 8 July 2011 (BST)
Erm, no, it does matter. The rule is very specific and we've never let exemptions exist in the past. I literally can't understand your line of thought here, me telling someone off for trying to work around the rule for the 094280th time is uncalled for apparently -- ϑanceϑanceevolution 11:13, 8 July 2011 (BST)
To be fair, inexperience users aren't likely to know off-hand that Aichon is responsible for Barrista. Given that it's a very likely search term, I'd be in favour of this one. They never lynch children, babies—no matter what they do they are whitewashed in advance 13:53, 8 July 2011 (BST)
What is there to not understand. The rules are clear, that's how it's been since the rule was made. If you want exceptions, get it revoked or modified. Or move the article in the mainspace (where it belongs if you think it has value to the UD community) -- ϑanceϑanceevolution 14:00, 8 July 2011 (BST)
Exceptions only lead to further encouragement of people seeking to push the boundaries of what would be allowed, especially with users like Revenant who constantly skates on a tin line. As DDR for the rest.-- Cat Pic.png Thadeous Oakley Talk 14:09, 8 July 2011 (BST)
Got to agree with Karek and Mis on this one. Aichon's user-script collection is well-known even outside of this wiki, and includes many very popular scripts (including Barrista). Search isn't a viable substitute, since userspace is unchecked by default, and since casual users can't be expect to check it (especially if they don't know to search there to begin with). -- Spiderzed 16:48, 8 July 2011 (BST)
Let me know when common sense prevails over bureaucracy on this wiki. The only exception to userspace redirects are those to Kevan's userspace. All others are scheduled deletion fodder. Keep it as a redirect to a mainsapce article (as I have done) or do as DDR subgested in the first place and push for reform. Breaking rules solves nothing. ~Vsig.png 17:19, 8 July 2011 (UTC)
Shall we get our torches and pitchforks ready?       14:11, 8 July 2011 (BST)
Yes, because apparently everyone has forgotten both what scheduled deletions are and why we have them. Protip: they're not rules prohibiting types of pages, they exist solely to benefit maintenance tasks like deleting vandalism or archiving pages. --Karekmaps 2.0?! 19:58, 8 July 2011 (BST)

Went ahead and recreated it as a redirect to External Links#Collections. There is a nice link to Aichon's namspace and Barrista is the second on the list. Compromise enough? ~Vsig.png 16:17, 8 July 2011 (UTC)

It sure is better than being unfindable at all by default search. -- Spiderzed 16:48, 8 July 2011 (BST)

Thank you for doing the right thing in the first place, something I would have easily been capable of doing if I researched the options properly and wasn't so lazy I had to try and break the rules. again. I didn't realise that's what non-completely-anal-retentive-and-retarded meant. Oh and also it's something a normal user could have done, no idea why a sysop had to have done it -- ϑanceϑanceevolution 10:39, 9 July 2011 (BST)
And seriously, I am following the rules. They are there and they are black and white. Don't fucking cry about me being the sysop to do my job and enforce them, maybe you should be looking at your own behavior before being a cunt about the one guy who has in his job description to deal with your shit sometimes (and actually ends up doing it rather than ignoring it). -- ϑanceϑanceevolution 10:43, 9 July 2011 (BST)
Laziness is one of my prime virtues! Tongue :P (The others being Impatience and Hubris.) And AFAIK it's not actually a rule, it's a “precedent” set by retards. Even if it were, just the fact that something is a rule (or law) does not necessarily make it a good rule (or law). I find that understanding a rule and why it exists leads to far better outcomes than mindlessly either following or breaking rules simply because they are rules.
Deleting things is by definition not constructive. You're following the letter of the rules but completely neglecting the wiki spirit in doing so. Too long staring into the void? Beware of following in footstepsᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 11:08, 9 July 2011 (BST)
No, it's not a precedent, it is a rule. Here is where the rule exists, set by the retards, the community you became a sysop to apparently serve. Beyond that I have nothing to say except make a note that you are yet again complaining about the rule itself, and the implementation of such a rule, without doing anything to change the status quo of how the rule is enforced. The way I enforce the rule is the way every sysop between late-2008 and now has enforced it, and I'm being consistent with that. You're the only person that's had a real issue with it up to now so don't try and put me on the back foot here. -- ϑanceϑanceevolution 11:19, 9 July 2011 (BST)
You know damn well that deletions schedules ARE NOT RULES. They're a tool to help us maintain the wiki. In this deletion schedule's case specifically it was blatantly made for types ofuserpage redirects like DDR and kevan not redirects to actual content pages. Stop abusing it to make some shitty personal point. --Karekmaps 2.0?! 16:07, 9 July 2011 (BST)
Are you literally incapable of understanding this? It is a RULE that has been treated like this SINCE IT WAS MADE. You and Rev are the only ones looking for exceptions, not me, and exceptions you will NOT get until you actually amend the rule. IT is not fucking hard. Holy fucking shit. And this only got personal when Rev started making it personal. I'm just being CONSISTENT. Try it sometime, seriously, it might make you less tiresome to deal with. -- ϑanceϑanceevolution 16:16, 9 July 2011 (BST)
Seriously this rule is so fucking clear it's hurting my head just having to deal with this shit. You both know the rule, you KNOW the RULE, so fucking abide by it until it's changed, preferably by either of you instead of doing what you're doing right now, which is whinge your fucking labias off until someone else does. Holy fuck. So not in the mood for this, especially when it's been fixed to a perfectly apt and manageable solution -- ϑanceϑanceevolution 16:20, 9 July 2011 (BST)
Well.. lets go down to the letter of the law here. It states exactly "User page redirects in the main space should be delete on sight as crit 3 or 9 (excluding those redirecting to Kevan)." This refers to criteria which are reasons not rules. Secondly, it said user pages not user-sub pages. Your not the only one who can grasp at straws. Tongue.gif Finally, Isn't it the practice of this wiki when concerning deletions that if there is a dispute between whether a page should be kept or deleted it is put to vote and that is how the decision is made?       20:31, 9 July 2011 (BST)
The criterion for speedy deletion and scheduled deletion are voted upon, and therefore considered canon, or rules if you will; not just merely guidelines to be followed or ignored on a whim. ~Vsig.png 20:55, 9 July 2011 (UTC)
Eh, I show my ignorance all the time. Still isn't it normal practice to vote on a page if the deletion is validly questioned? I might be assuming again and making an ass out of myself.       21:43, 9 July 2011 (BST)
Its ok to be ignorant of the wiki rules. One must be somewhat sadistic to learn the ins-and-outs of wikilaw, which is to say that most of the people contributing to this discussion are sadists. In short, to question the validity of a page deleted under scheduled criterion is to question the validity of the criterion itself. Voting to ammend scheduled deletion criterion has passed before and if all goes well it may happen again. I'm not against reform, but as always, I'd prefer to see it done with some civility and tact. ~Vsig.png 22:41, 9 July 2011 (UTC)
MS is correct. To enforce a rule without understanding the context it exists in and the problem it was created to use usually results in bureaucratic abuse. (c.f. PATRIOT Act and numerous “anti-terrorism” laws all over the globe.)
The scheduled deletion was voted in to prevent “vanity pages” such as Rosslessness and AHLG. This is a baby and bathwater type deal. These pages do no harm and serve a useful purpose in making users/characters easier to find. (Diskspace = cheep!) Of course, if there is any other possible claim to the page name, then it should be aggressively followed up; for example, as DDR pointed out, the two groups I put on the on the Revenant disambiguation page that I created certainly deserve to be represented, although IMO as inactive groups they do not deserve equal billing.
That said, that's a whole 'nother debate which I don't have time to spearhead right now, so I am glad that my actions have served to spur discussion on this issue. ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 23:03, 9 July 2011 (BST)

He hasn't made an edit in nine days. Precedent indicates you should probably go ahead and make the call yourself, if not now, then within the next day. Rev already voiced his support for both candidates, so you can work with that and assume that unless he changes his stances the decisions are going to fall to you regardless. That said, it would be nice to give him a chance to dissuade you from any vetoes you may be considering, but if you feel the outcomes are clear, there's no reason to tarry.

It's only discussion relevant to the determination of misconduct. Not spamming the ruling section. See relevant examples, we've got established precedent of the rule being based on what is needed to help resolve the case not what anyone feels like saying regarding the case. We've drawn that line on more than a few high profile cases/incidents. --Karekmaps 2.0?! 07:20, 13 October 2011 (BST)

No dispute about the ruling section, but the Misconduct page guidelines state that all discussion is supposed to go on the Misconduct page. If that is no longer the case, then that section should be updated. ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 12:52, 13 October 2011 (BST)
It's long been the case that that rule only applies to commentary relevant to determining the case, as common sense would dictate. Otherwise the interpretation being suggested would have had people moving discussion about the page or about things like the harassment rule only A/M simply to cause a disruption. The wording may need some slight clarification for those intentionally lacking in that area though. --Karekmaps 2.0?! 13:14, 13 October 2011 (BST)
