Picture of the Year voting round 1 open[edit]

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2012 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We're interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year for 2012. Voting is open to established Wikimedia users who meet the following criteria:

  1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
  2. This user account must have more than 75 edits on any single Wikimedia project before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2012 Contest Eligibility tool.
  3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like. The first round category winners and the top ten overall will then make it to the final. In the final round, when a limited number of images are left, you must decide on the one image that you want to become the Picture of the Year.

To see the candidate images just go to the POTY 2012 page on Wikimedia Commons

Wikimedia Commons celebrates our featured images of 2012 with this contest. Your votes decide the Picture of the Year, so remember to vote in the first round by January 30, 2013.

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

GorillaWarfare is "hovering" over http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Sanello[edit]

I've left a warning on your page regarding the personal attacks here—referring to other editors as "neo-Nazis" and similar is completely unacceptable. Regarding your image, I've tagged it for deletion because you've indicated that it was taken by your neighbor. Your neighbor has yet to send in sufficient permission, so if that doesn't happen in seven days, it will be removed so as not to violate copyright. GorillaWarfare (talk) 19:52, 19 July 2013 (UTC)

Do you have a source for the photo of the mouth in File:Uvula piercing.jpg? John Vandenberg (chat) 01:29, 21 December 2013 (UTC)

Took it myself, never uploaded the original image. Is there a better way to express that? GorillaWarfare (talk) 01:47, 21 December 2013 (UTC)
Just add something to that effect on the image description page, in the source field. ;-) John Vandenberg (chat) 02:07, 21 December 2013 (UTC)
Done. GorillaWarfare (talk) 02:12, 21 December 2013 (UTC)

Have you visited 4chan? I see you used did the audio for it and your username is part of a copypasta from there.--150.216.254.204 11:50, 18 January 2015 (UTC)

I don't make a habit of it. I did the audio for the article because it was a FA without a spoken version. My username is unrelated to the copypasta. GorillaWarfare (talk) 02:00, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
You should do an audio clip reading that shit out from the copypasta. In regards to my username, mimicry is the sincerest form of flattery.--ChemWarfare (talk) 01:27, 4 May 2015 (UTC)

Stefan2 (talk) 18:56, 15 January 2016 (UTC)

Please read this[edit]

Right from the day I was blocked in June 2015, all administrators tell me one thing: "You attacked GorillaWarfare", "You harassed GorillaWarfare", "You created attack pages against GorillaWarfare".

You know everything (My intention was not to attack you, though a third person would think like that). You must tell other administrators the truth. It's true that I have created some block evading socks, but there are reasons. Though you can say that no reasons are enough to justify sockpuppetry.

  • I actually wanted to take the standard offer seriously. When I was blocked, in August 2015, I found that User:Mar4d has a sock account named User:Lyk4. I thought if I come back, then I will file an SPI against him.
  • At that time there was no guarantee that I will come back, as you know everybody was hating me for writing such things against GorillaWarfare. I wanted to stop Mar4d from becoming administrator, that's the reason, I created "The Avengers" account. Mar4d had 60,000 edits. If I directly accuse him of socking with my new account, then it will be a confirmed BOOMERANG on me. That's why I edited for two months before starting this ANI thread against Mar4d. At the beginning it was what I expected: Future Perfect At Sunrise initially supported Mar4d, but due to Wikimandia who took it to SPI it was exposed that Mar4d was a sock of Acejet.
  • I knew his friend TopGun will try to block me, that's why I didn't create any articles with this account. When TopGun filed that CosmicEmperor SPI, at the beginning I was trying to defend myself, but later on I emailed Mike V, and few administrators (including you) that I am CosmicEmperor. And I don't have any access to the CosmicEmperor account. I also promised Mike V that I will take the STANDARD OFFER this time, and request unblock after 6 months.

Community banned by a sock IP[edit]

Problems with fake accusations[edit]

  • Now I understand, why they did this? CosmicEmperor was indefinitely blocked, but Cosmic was not involved in any long term harassment or long term abuse. When this ban proposal was made in 2015, I didn't have large number of sock accounts. User:LoverBoyInGarden was not a sock account. That was my first account, whose password I forgot. The account made only four edits in 2014. The only way they can ban me was by linking me with an old banned User:Maheshkumaryadav. The IP also included the word "stalking". I was never stalking you.
  • When I asked some genuine questions, always I was rebuked by administrator SQL, who revoked my talk page access.

Unblock Request[edit]

Hello. As per request sent to arbcomm at the end of November 2015 & more recently to func, I was hoping to become unblocked on enwiki. Per advice of User:HJ Mitchell (as well as common sense), I will avoid both editing as it relates to Cooper Union as well as Beyond My Ken. My primary concerns in editing, as has been the case since 2006, are keeping wikipedia citations up to date, with correct grammar, and as few citation needed headlines as possible. Obviously, both Beyond My Ken and myself were frustrated with the edits of one another, and I was particularly steamed he was allowed to essentially en:WP:OWN both en:Cooper Union & en:Cooper Union financial crisis and tuition protests (1/3 of total edits on pages with very long histories), disagree vehemently with a dozen other good faith editors and was baffled to find so many of my edits suppressed all at once. With time, I have realized it is best to take time to sleep on conflicts, assume en:WP:GF and take my time to avoid disagreements whenever possible. Ferociouslettuce (talk) 22:37, 27 April 2016 (UTC)

@Ferociouslettuce: When the Arbitration Committee declined to unblock you after your last appeal, we instructed that you could re-appeal six months from then. As that is not until June 30, 2016, we will not be hearing appeals before then. As a side note, please send future appeals to arbcom-l-at-lists.wikimedia.org instead of posting them to individual arbitrators' talk pages. GorillaWarfare (talk) 00:12, 28 April 2016 (UTC)
ok. my last email to FUNC received no official response. I will wait another 2 months. Ferociouslettuce (talk) 23:46, 29 April 2016 (UTC)
I'm seeing that Thryduulf responded on 21 March. GorillaWarfare (talk) 23:57, 29 April 2016 (UTC)
Yes I appreciated Thryduulf's response, but he was explicit in noting "opinions expressed in this email are solely [his] own and do not necessarily represent the views of any organisation or group with which I may be affiliated". Ferociouslettuce (talk) 00:16, 4 May 2016 (UTC)
@Ferociouslettuce: The point remains that you may not re-appeal until June 30, 2016. Your emails were received, and Thryduulf did reply, but the functionaries list does not need to "officially" reply to every email that is prematurely appealing a block that has a very clear re-appeal date. I see that MichaelMaggs has noted on your talk page that you should stop using Commons to access English Wikipedians that you would not otherwise be able to contact, and I agree with him. Future discussion of this matter should be directed to arbcom-l-at-lists.wikimedia.org; as an attempt to discourage you from using Commons for this purpose (and likely getting blocked for it), this will be my final reply here.
