User talk:QtheC

From LGPedia
Jump to: navigation, search


Hi, I just noticed that no one had officially welcomed you here yet, so I thought I'd go ahead and do it. So, welcome to LGPedia! I think I remember seeing you on the comment boards, so it's great to have more people from there helping out here. And I really like the idea behind the Breeniversisms page. We've had separate pages about those things floating around for a while, but it's nice to be able to see them all in one place. It'll be a good reference guide for people trying to learn all the "inside" things that LG fans have a tendency to produce. Anyway, welcome again and if you have any questions, fell free to ask me on my talk page.--Jonpro 16:01, 6 June 2007 (CDT)

I'd love to, except.... I can't. Once an edit is made, all the information is stored forever and cannot be changed. Okay, maybe that's not completely true, but essentially that's the case. Don't worry though, people forget to log in all the time. If you want to put on a note saying that the IP address is really you, feel free. I know that's the approach some people have taken.--Jonpro 20:17, 6 June 2007 (CDT)

Disputed Content Usage

Look, QtheC, I really do appreciate you as a Pedia editor, but you can't go adding content that you know is currently being disputed to pages willy-nilly. That's like if I decided to say on Gina's page for example, that her accent is slightly Australian and it was being disputed, and then I decided to add that information to the Crystal Young page and the Mexican Mating Machine page. Like I said, I'll let it stay on the 437 page until the dispute is resolved. But you can consider this your final warning. I can and will, if you edit the LG15 Today page again with the userbox information, ban you for a week. - Shiori 07:59, 19 March 2008 (CDT)

That is not what is happening here. I added a link from LG15 Today to a related Userbox, without including that Userbox itself since such inclusion was under discussion elsewhere. There is no established policy on the inclusion of Userboxes or links to the Userbox page, and deleting such content without such a policy as you have done is arbitrary censorship and closer to vandalism than anything I have done. In addition to adding that link, I took the proactive step of offering a proposed guidance for Userbox usage on the Userbox page, so that a discussion could occur to resolve the issue in a cooperative way. This is how the LGPedia should operate.
I am not a vandal and have not spammed or abused the LGPedia. You are so far out of line now, shiori, that I request an public apology, and will seek one via Zoey now. If anyone deserves to have privileges suspended at this point it is you, not me. You are abusing the trust that the administrators of this shared community resource have placed in you, and I hope for a speedy correction to your mistakes.
You were wrong in the first place, shiori, to delete the material without first engaging in a discussion on it's talk page, suggesting such a removal and offering reasons why or suggesting alternatives so that it might be discussed, and have subbornly continued this unproductive approach, escalating rather than resolving conflict. ~ QtheC 08:25, 19 March 2008 (CDT)
IIRC, QtheC, you don't have to provide a rationale for deleting something that was added to a page unless you're either blanking or one if requested. This is especially true for something that is not adding pertinent important content to a page. I am, of course, sorry that I seem to have offended you and you seem to think I'm personally attacking you, but I will not apologize for trying to resolve this the way I have done. - Shiori 08:37, 19 March 2008 (CDT)
Perhaps you should review the LGPedia:Deletion_Policy. It is, of course, refering to page deletions which adhere to a higher standard than small edits, but the spirit of the process is clear. Only admins of the LGPedia can delete pages. Pages that only contain inflammatory content, are hateful, are clearly advertisements or spam can be deleted without discussion. Other pages will typically go through a discussion process of no less than one week. For larger articles, this discussion period can be extended. If there is no consensus, the issue will be put to a vote. If that is required for page deletions, surely a simple discussion is merited where a deletion is under consideration of something that is not offensive, etc. ~ QtheC 14:18, 20 March 2008 (CDT)

As a separate matter, is it appropriate for a non-moderator user, such as shiori, to add a "vandal" tag to another user's talk page? I wasn't fooled by this false assumption of authority, but others might be in the future. The user in question is on "spam patrol" but that has no bearing here. (Note: After she applied the tag here, I applied the same tag to her talk page as a rebuttal, so if she is wrong here, then I was wrong there and it should be corrected also.) ~ QtheC 14:18, 20 March 2008 (CDT)

Anyone can add the vandal tag, Q. Of course, I think it's a little silly, considering it does categorize a user or anything... Still, since we can end this peacefully, I'll take of your tag. Hugses! - Shiori 16:31, 20 March 2008 (CDT)
