Just been archived, as no real discussion since the 8th (except for SuicideAngle asking if it was dead, and me saying that I was archiving it.)

Please protect, as other dead policies.

Karek got the main page, but the talk page still needs protection. Linkthewindow  Talk  12:48, 2 December 2008 (UTC)

Karek just got the talk page, too. --ZsL 03:50, 3 December 2008 (UTC)


Added a link to the UHUB under wiki information. -- Cheese 21:01, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

UDWiki:Open Discussion/UHUB Discussion and it's talk page.

Discussion is closed as the UHUB has been created, and all discussion moved to talk page (manually, to preserve the edit history on the Open Discussions talk page.) I just archived it, so it just needs to be protected. Thanks.

Main Page

Updated length of quarantine time. Happy 3 year anniversary, UD! --– Nubis NWO 13:06, 22 November 2008 (UTC)

Hello! The Shambling Seagulls Shambling_Seagulls are back in the game after three years away. I appreciate that we're a historical group, but if possible I'd like to add in our current whereabouts and what we're doing. Thanks!

Strapon Bev This unsigned comment was added by Soddball at an unknown time. Linkthewindow  Talk  06:06, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

Why not just request unprotection? (Oh, and remember to sign.) Linkthewindow  Talk  06:06, 21 November 2008 (UTC)
I couldn't see where to do that, so I thought I'd ask. Where do I do that? Soddball 08:17, 21 November 2008 (UTC)
Right here will do. I see that the Shambling Seagulls are back on the stats page with 22 members, however, I'm afraid I can't find any links between you and the original Seagulls, Soddball. So I don't know that giving you back control of the historical page is wise (anyone could come in and claim abandoned group pages if we set such precedents). I'm believe that the way we handled the Paradox (2006)/Paradox case is the way to go here, giving you the Shambling Seagulls page, but only after moving the historical content to Shambling Seagulls (2006) -- boxy talkteh rulz 08:50 21 November 2008 (BST)
I agree that we shouldn't give them the original page. If it is the same group there should be no problem with getting the page name back, but not the content. Historical pages are locked for a reason. After the problems with DARIS and DARIS 2.0 I almost wonder if we shouldn't let people have access to historical names at all.--– Nubis NWO 15:23, 21 November 2008 (UTC)
Yes, it's problematic, however it's also unfair to make returning groups change their name, because often they have nothing to do with nominating their groups for historical status -- boxy talkteh rulz 00:58 22 November 2008 (BST)

Hi Boxy. Thanks for your reply. What sort of proof would you like? I can point you to the run-in we had in October 2005 with the Creedy Defence Force. There were some very bad-tempered exchanges which are preserved here: Talk:October_Battle_of_Fort_Creedy

Probably the most important section:"Jaysus, woman, just how slow are you? My zombie character, Strapon Bev, is a member of the Seagulls. My signin here, as Soddball, is not. My human character, Soddball, is not a member of the Seagulls because he is a human. He is out hunting down stupid people in N Malton. My email address (soddball@hotmail.com) I've had for about 7 years. I use the username because it's unique." Soddball 13:08, November 21, 2008

OK, I'll move the historical page, and open up the original for you to edit. This case shows the importance of properly signing your posts on the wiki. If there had been a link to your user page in your signature, it would have been much more clearcut that it was your account that made those pro-seagull posts -- boxy talkteh rulz 00:58 22 November 2008 (BST)

User talk:A Helpful Little Gnome

Gnome protected it before demoting himself and I feel it should probably be unprotected (Why have a protected talk page; seems like a contradiction in terms to me) but I'm not sure what the precedent is here so I'm putting it here to get some input from the other Sysops.--The General T Sys U! P! F! 14:25, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

Looks like AHLG pulled a Grim. I think we leave it protected and if he comes back he can ask for it to be unprotected. He didn't ban his account, just demoted himself. Right? He must not have wanted to have to deal with any flak on his talk page.--– Nubis NWO 01:10, 20 November 2008 (UTC)
Yep, he demoted himself. Linkthewindow  Talk  05:18, 20 November 2008 (UTC)
I personally would give it a few days to settle down, and then unprotect his talk page so that friends can leave a message. We don't want the bitching spilling over onto his talk page, and putting him off returning altogether (if there is any chance of that at all) -- boxy talkteh rulz 07:03 20 November 2008 (BST)
One week sounds like a proper length of time.--– Nubis NWO 15:37, 20 November 2008 (UTC)
Sounds like it's agreed then. We don't want to drive him away permanently but a talk page which can't be edited in the long-term is rather pointless, a week should give a sufficient cooling-off period.--The General T Sys U! P! F! 19:29, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

*Snickers and does Mr. Burns' hand thing* Excellent. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 21:40, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

If gnome wants his talk page protected (as he obviously does) he should be allows to have it protected. Finis did the same thing while he was gone for an extended period, i don't see why this should be any different.--xoxo 01:50, 22 November 2008 (UTC)

We want Gnome back... Finis can go get... ahem. Besides, Finis' talk page was the target of constant vandalism -- boxy talkteh rulz 02:05 22 November 2008 (BST)
Yeah i want him back too, but i don't see how ignoring his wishes is the best way to go about it...and if you want me to get gnomes talk page the target of vandalism, well, let's just say i've got the contacts ;) --xoxo 02:07, 22 November 2008 (UTC)
The inherent point of a talk page is for well, you know, talk :P! A permanently protected talk page is of a magnitude of usefulness only slightly greater than a chocolate teapot.--The General T Sys U! P! F! 12:03, 22 November 2008 (UTC)
Great. now I miss Gnome, AND want a chocolate teapot...-- dǝǝɥs ɯɐds: sʎɐʍ1ɐ! 12:42, 22 November 2008 (UTC)

Dunell Hills

In the middle of an edit war as well as being the subject of an arbitration case.

Request protection as per this edit as it is the reversion of this that is causing the drama. -- To know the face of God is to know madness....Praise knowledge! Mischief! Mayhem! The Rogues Gallery!. <== DDR Approved Editor 23:03, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

I'm keeping an eye on it. If it becomes a problem, I will protect it. Until then, it stays open. -- Cheese 23:10, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

Wasn't this issue already resolved on the talk page between the Dead and DHPD? If he wants to make a change to the page he should use Talk:Dunell Hills.--  AHLGTG THE END IS NIGH! 01:47, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

We solved it. This asshole doesn't talk for us. I support vandalism and shit, but I don't claim him as a goon.--Globetrotters Icon.png #99 DCC 02:37, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

It was getting ridiculous, so I rolled back the idiocy, and protected it -- boxy talkteh rulz 10:01 12 November 2008 (BST)

I've unprotected it again. I'll ask Iggles to leave it as is until the arbies case is finished. If it continues before then, it should be re-protected -- boxy talkteh rulz 12:03 14 November 2008 (BST)

These policies

Misconduct Changes and SysOps are Moderators. No talk-page action for half a month, so I archived them. A protection is needed, like all the other policies. Linkthewindow  Talk  08:02, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

My policy should also be protected. --Midianian Big Brother Diary Room: [511,16] 11:22, 16 November 2008 (UTC)
Bam! Done!--– Nubis NWO 14:55, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

Arbitration Case Sorting

Could someone do the equivalent of this to the above two cases, so they'll get sorted properly on Category:Arbitration_Cases? --Midianian Big Brother Diary Room: [512,10] 12:18, 10 November 2008 (UTC)

Done, I think -- boxy talkteh rulz 12:45 10 November 2008 (BST)


I just want my user page protected. - User:Whitehouse 21:11, 3 November 2008 (UTC)
