Please reconsider[edit]

Hello, I hope that you will reconsider. Four plus years of contributing and over 33,000 edits? That's impressive. Thank you for all you've done to make this a better encyclopedia. And then one administrator mistakenly uses the word "vandalism"? That person was wrong to use that word in this case. Please let it pass. I hope that you will return soon. I wish you well.

At the very least, read what I said at the talkpage there. The Blade of the Northern Lights (話して下さい) 06:25, 24 April 2011 (UTC)
You know, I don't read it as "four accusations". I read Silver Seren backpedalling on the word "vandalism". And now I see Magog the Ogre standing up for you and offering the excellent advice to all concerned to be very careful about accusing people of "vandalism", using much more colorful language than I use. I note that, where I live at least, it is late on a Saturday night. Perhaps some people are less inhibited than usual. Perhaps some said things that they will regret upon reflection. I don't know you, but have seen your name many times. I respect what you've done for Wikipedia. Sometimes, it is best to treat other's poorly chosen words the way that ducks treat falling water. Let it roll off. Just my thoughts, and I bid you peace. Cullen328 (talk) 06:32, 24 April 2011 (UTC)
By the way, having noticed that you blanked your user page, I took a look at the page history and then noticed you started the article on Christine Craft in 2007. I have heard her many times on KGO radio over the years, and have a lot of respect for her. I remember her discrimination lawsuit from decades ago. Well done.

It's plain to see that the admin got your dander up. But be careful what you say. His user page has indicated his adminship since December of 2008. ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 07:03, 24 April 2011 (UTC)

Please do not leave in a huff...[edit]

Rainbow trout transparent.png Whack!

You've been whacked with a wet trout.

Don't take this too seriously. Someone just wants to let you know you did something silly.

Ahhhh! That's better![edit]

Best wishes[edit]

Hi, Corvus cornix. I am sorry this bad thing happened to you. Please don't abandon your wiki-career over this. The opinion of WP:Randy in Boise shouldn't matter to you (even if he is an admin). Regards, --Diannaa (Talk) 21:07, 24 April 2011 (UTC)

Unfortunately there are too many Randys who are admins here, because umm ... they promote each other in that MMORPG known as WP:RfA. It's not surprising that at some point some of them throw their weight around. Tijfo098 (talk) 06:34, 25 April 2011 (UTC)
I'm no admin, and had I gotten that template, I would likewise have ridiculed its poster, for being totally oblivious. ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 06:46, 25 April 2011 (UTC)
However, looking at the article in question [1], I don't think that having it promptly unredirected/restored was something surprising per WP:BRD. There are enough critical sources there that would probably make the article survive an AfD. Tijfo098 (talk) 07:45, 25 April 2011 (UTC)

It should matter, though, that you "templated a regular", which is considered impolite, and also didn't do any investigation to see if he really was an admin. So this "bad thing that happened to you", is around 50 percent of your own making. ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 03:34, 25 April 2011 (UTC)

I have to agree with Bugs here on the point that you should know by now how to tell if someone is an admin or not. But whether the guy is an admin or not should not matter in this sequence of events as there was no use of the tools. MrDarcy spoke in a very condescending manner after Corvus cornix made some mistakes (redirecting a worthwhile article and templating a regular rather than discussing). Both failed to do a little basic research and find out who they were dealing with before they started interacting, and made some mistakes for that reason. Corvus cornix, there were not four people on the ANI board who called you a vandal. The only one who used that term was SilverSeren, and he retracted it a little further down. Please consider resuming editing. People think highly of you and want you to come back. Sincerely, --Diannaa (Talk) 16:12, 25 April 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Islamic Assembly of North America[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Islamic Assembly of North America has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Defunct group centered in a small city. Tagged for notability for almost 6 years.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist.

MYSPACEDOTCOM listed at Redirects for discussion[edit]


An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect MYSPACEDOTCOM. Since you had some involvement with the MYSPACEDOTCOM redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion if you have not already done so. -- Tavix (talk) 22:08, 6 December 2015 (UTC)
