Quotes[edit]

Thought Grenades by Atsme


There's something indescribable, yet intrinsically beautiful about sharing knowledge, making contributions, and helping others.
~
The quantity of one's edits matters far less than the quality of one's prose.
~
We don't appreciate history until we become an integral part of it.
~
I may not be perfect, but I can certainly strive to be.

Atsme📞📧


Any Point?

Your quote- "I may not be perfect, but I can certainly strive to be."
If there is absolutely no chance of being perfect, why try to be. Just a random question. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.99.140.221 (talk) 22:39, 17 February 2015 (UTC)
Because as long as you are striving to be perfect you keep getting better. Grasping that concept may be difficult for those who set limits on themselves or lack self-confidence.Atsme📞📧
Oxymoron
Requesting a block against an editor for ignoring all rules when WP:IAR is our policy.

Hmmmm.....

Don't let your fingers type faster than your brain can analyze context.
~
The problem with being "politically correct" today is that we have allowed it to obfuscate truth.
~
Having character and being a character are not the same. ~Atsme
~
A classic line by User:NE Ent [1] during the 2014 ARBCOM elections: Um, if wiki elections were run on American Democratic party guidelines IPs could vote early and vote often.

The universe is made of protons, neutrons, electrons and morons. ~anonymous
~
On Wikipedia, it's important to know when to stop arguing with people, and simply let them be wrong. ~anonymous

I added this section, not as a show of vanity, but as a reminder for why I tolerate the occasional injustices, ill-will, and incivility by the few who are here to push an agenda or WP:RIGHTGREATWRONGS while hiding behind the veil of anonymity. It's one thing to disagree - it's healthy discourse when collegiality is maintained - but when disagreements lead to PAs and aspersions that result in a successful railroading to eliminate one's opposition, it's nothing short of despicable. No editor is immune, so if it happens to you, just pick yourself up, dust yourself off and start all over again. Atsme📞📧 20:40, 2 September 2018 (UTC)

OK, I hope you're happy with your work, I think it's fabulous! And I'm also glad that we could (resolve? set aside? put on hiatus?) our differences elsewhere and that it led to this accomplishment of yours. Cheers! — alf laylah wa laylah (talk) 19:11, 12 April 2014 (UTC)
Thank you, Alf. It means a great deal more to me coming from you. I don't even consider our differences as anything to set aside, much less consider. I learned a great deal from the experience, and thank you kindly. Now then, is the article still supposed to be in my sandbox, or did I screw-up yet again? AtsmeConsult 19:17, 12 April 2014 (UTC)
No, it's normal that it's still in your sandbox. When you move a page out of userspace into mainspace that just happens. You can blank the sandbox version and it won't affect the real version, and then use your sandbox for other stuff. Would you be interested in trying to write a DYK (WP:DYK) from your new article? It'll get it on the main page for a few hours. That process can be a little overwhelming, I know, but if you'd like to try I can help you, or if you'd like it to happen but don't want to get involved, I can do it for you (which is normal, other people proposing DYKs for new articles).— alf laylah wa laylah (talk) 19:23, 12 April 2014 (UTC)
I'd love to do something new. If you have the patience to work with me, I'm game. Also, I noticed in the "view history" of my new article, it shows all the edits. Uh oh? Or is that normal? You might want to take a peek at it. AtsmeConsult 19:26, 12 April 2014 (UTC)
It's supposed to show the history, don't worry about that. I'll think about what might be a good hook, and maybe you can read over the instructions at the DYK page. I believe you have 5 days or 10 days or something from when it's moved into mainspace, so it's not a super hurry.— alf laylah wa laylah (talk) 19:28, 12 April 2014 (UTC)
You can take the lead, and just coach me along so I can see first hand how it's done. Is that ok? AtsmeConsult 19:33, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

The above thread is referring to Gabor B. Racz which further substantiates how wrong it was for editors to initiate a WP:GAR within minutes following the wrongful accusations of a COI against me at COIN, particularly regarding this BLP. What ensued at the GAR discussions and on the article's TP should serve as a lesson to all of us regarding allegations of COI without justification, and the only reason I am now bringing it up.

Your GA nomination of Alligator gar[edit]

The article Alligator gar you nominated as a good article has passed ; see Talk:Alligator gar for comments about the article. Well done!

I did the DYK nomination[edit]

It's here: Template:Did you know nominations/Gabor B. Racz‎. You might want to put it on your watchlist because it's sometimes necessary to do a little editing before it's accepted, but in this case I think that'll be minimal. By the way, you should be quite proud of the minimal attention the article got from new page patrollers. You probably didn't realize it, but those two or three small edits people made right after you moved it were just the tip of the iceberg of probably around a hundred people looking it over to make sure it wasn't too crappy to survive, and then it got assessed with a C by the bio wikiproject. Very good!— alf laylah wa laylah (talk) 22:10, 13 April 2014 (UTC)

Did you look at the main page and see it on there? I took a screenshot for you in case you want a souvenir, which I can email to you if you'd like. Fabulous work, it flew right through the review. That's very rare on a first try. You should be proud. There are all kinds of little widgets you can put on your userpage to commemorate the occasion if you want to.— alf laylah wa laylah (talk) 00:20, 26 April 2014 (UTC)
The article's main page, or one of the links on the banner? Not quite versed in navigating DYK. I would love a souvenir, Alf - thank you bunches, and thank you for the kind words, but I can't take full credit. I had one helluva teacher in you! Where do I get the widgets? Oh, and I added the DYK tool, I think. I need to read up on the DYK procedures, because right now it's all a bit confusing. Once that light goes on in my head, I'll be on the fast track. I also made my first template, and uploaded more pictures to Commons. That was fun, too. Just have to be careful I don't grow roots in this chair. I lose track of time, and before I realize it, 10 to 12 hrs have passed. Atsme talk 02:46, 26 April 2014 (UTC)
No, the actual front page of Wikipedia that the whole world sees when they land on it. It's still on there now, so you can see it live, but in case you don't get this in time I'll send you the screenshot anyway. It's amazing how time flies, isn't it?— alf laylah wa laylah (talk) 02:58, 26 April 2014 (UTC)
Oh, Wow!!! No, I didn't know!! Atsme talk 03:01, 26 April 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, that's the payoff for writing good new content. Amazing, isn't it? Do you know how to check page views in the article history? Wait till the date changes and you'll see your article got thousands of views today.— alf laylah wa laylah (talk) 03:05, 26 April 2014 (UTC)
Sure is a good feeling, Alf. Amazing, and very rewarding. Page views? I don't know how to check page views. That is really awesome beyond words! Is there a link to the Widgets for my user page? --Atsme talk 03:17, 26 April 2014 (UTC)
I'm not sure if there's a general link. I use little teensy ones that I copied off someone else's page, you can see them on my user page. Also you can just look at other people's userpages who do DYKs and see what they do. That's probably the best way to find them, but also there might be a category or a list of them somewhere, I just don't know.— alf laylah wa laylah (talk) 03:24, 26 April 2014 (UTC)

Meow! This cat swings all ways, vax and anti-vax, and will accept homeopathy, acupuncture, traditional Chinese medicine, and milk. And kitten hugs.

Soft kitty, warm kitty, little ball of fur. Happy kitty, sleepy kitty, purr, purr, purr. *lol* Thanks, Drmies. If that cat ever authors a book about feline acupuncture, I'll do my best to include a section on the motivation and inspiration behind it. In kitty language, CAM/Alt Med can only mean one thing - creature comfort. Cats are pretty amazing creatures, as I'm sure you're well aware. Following is what homeo-pity meant to our 20+ yr. old barn cat who actually knew she was going to die. I say that with conviction because of the events that led up to it, beginning with her rare visit to the house. She stood at my front door meowing until I answered. I didn't know what was wrong with her - she looked fine for her age - so I picked her up, and sat on the porch swing with her in my lap. She responded well to a little love and attention; laid very still purring while I gently rubbed her head. After I went back into the house, she stayed there in the swing. I found her little lifeless body the next morning exactly where I left her. She came to tell me goodbye. Atsme📞📧 17:04, 15 March 2016 (UTC)

Hi Atsme, I saw your post on Anarchyte's talk page and just now discovered your amazing work on Wikipedia. Why have you not yet applied for the Rfa? Xender Lourdes (talk) 00:34, 12 June 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for the kind words, Xender Lourdes. I actually self-reverted after I re-read A's user page and realized their userbox correctly displayed their time as an editor, which to me is pretty amazing considering all the accomplishments in such a short period of time. And thank you Xender for your contributions and the excellent work you've been doing. I actually have given some consideration to adminship but I'm not quite ready for it. I occasionally help at DRN when I can - not as much as I should - and from time to time I'll close at ANI, but at this point in time, I very much enjoy working with the Equine Project team, creating articles, reviewing GA/FA candidates, improving/expanding articles for GA/FA promotion as well as helping others prep theirs, and I also enjoy spending time on Commons, providing photographs that are needed for articles, and helping review FP candidates. It's "happy time" for me. Admins have a huge responsibility, and to do the job right requires a great deal of time, patience, and understanding. Perhaps after I achieve most of my goals as a content creator and GA/FA contributor, adminship may be something I'd consider. Atsme📞📧 04:26, 12 June 2016 (UTC)

Congrats again, and having looked at the FPC page, I actually have a question that reflects my limited knowledge of photography: what does "high EV" mean? --Tryptofish (talk) 21:32, 2 July 2017 (UTC)
Thank you, Tryptofish - EV = Encyclopedic Value...it's a requirement for WP:FP candidates, but not for Commons FP candidates. They judge differently. Atsme📞📧 21:37, 2 July 2017 (UTC)
Oh, of course, and nothing to do with camera settings! If I weren't a fish already, I'd self-whale! --Tryptofish (talk) 21:41, 2 July 2017 (UTC)
And Tryp, I had the perfect template made for that, too - trout Self-whale... for when a trout just isn't enough, as you already know, but reminders don't hurt considering the antsy trigger fingers of template deletionists which make the saying "use it or lose it" encyclopedic. I was hoping that my template creator would add the words "...when a trout just isn't enough." to the self-whale templateI figured it out, now done!20:24, 5 August 2017 (UTC) but I was happy and appreciative for the template he created. I will add that he did make the perfect template for confused face icon Just curious... which included the emoji & dots... Atsme📞📧 22:35, 2 July 2017 (UTC)

Well deserved, Atsme. You've been a cool head and someone who is able to inject some good humor into moments where things could, or are ready to, blow apart with tempers and impatience on either side of a discussion at some highly charged talk pages, not just at the Donald Trump article. Thanks for recognizing her, Lionelt . -- ψλ 13:31, 15 June 2018 (UTC)

Thank you so much, my WP friends. I am flattered, very appreciative of the kind words, and equally appreciative of your efforts in deflecting potential disruption by putting collegiality first when editing highly controversial political articles. I often visit the “Thought Grenades” at the top of my user page - it helps keep things in perspective. ;-) The world is experiencing a Trumpadigm shift, much of which has been a culture shock to the establishment, a wake-up call on a world-wide scale, and a welcome reversal to those who opposed the open border/global direction proposed by establishment elites who mistakenly believe they know what’s best for everyone, including how best to spend other people’s money. The compilation of Davy Crockett memos by Edward Ellis speaks volumes, as does this very telling email. Happy editing!!! Atsme📞📧 15:54, 15 June 2018 (UTC)

There comes a time when an interest in Wikipedia can become an obsession if we are not careful. Then it is only a matter of time before we find ourselves on the wrong side of "the system" - which is really not a system because little thought has been given to its design - and we then undergo that "dark night of the soul" questioning why we are even here. I have seen far too many dedicated and talented editors leave because of this. Sometimes all we need is a few people to show support, and a rethink about our focus here - what we are going to get involved in and what we are not. I have my focus. Cavalry man probably has his. Hopefully, soon you will find yours.
Then you can remove that ridiculous SEMI-RETIRED nonsense from the top of this page and start getting on with it!! William Harristalk 20:47, 27 November 2019 (UTC)

Atsme, TGIF, I try to take a break every so often and unwatch some pages as they pop up on my watchlist, but sometimes the infuriation gets the best of me, and as I'm sure you know, being accused of something you're not is not a good feeling. And the human body is interesting, I remember being "ordered" by my doctor to drink a chocolate milkshake a day. Those were the days, back when things were simpler (and doctors didn't care about things too much). Sir Joseph (talk) 20:46, 10 July 2020 (UTC)
After a certain admin made an ill willed caution against me yesterday, I thought seriously about a long break. I really loathe it when folks lack a sense of humor or single one person out of a crowd and ignore far worse accusations and heated commentary that is in the same thread. But, I know that even admins are human and have flaws as we all do. Everyone should avoid deep entanglements here and state their arguments succinctly and backed with plenty of reliable sources. Knowing to walk away when faced with quasi schizophrenic, hypersensitive brick walls is the best thing to do.--MONGO (talk) 21:04, 10 July 2020 (UTC)

This place is sometimes a terrible place with terrible admins. I was blocked once due to VM taking me to AE, and I was going to just be warned, but one admin didn't like that I didn't think I did anything wrong (which many admins felt there was grey area) so he decided to make it a block. Other admins argued that it was wrong, it was punitive, etc.
Speaking of VM and BLP and AE, he once took me to AE for saying a politician lied, surprisingly I didn't get sanctioned for that, even if it was on a Trump page. User_talk:Sir_Joseph/Archive_8#Inappropriate_comments, and I didn't even remember but the first link was to a "warning" from MastCell regarding "shithole" countries and of course civil language that is only policed when you disagree with it User_talk:Sir_Joseph/Archive_8. On the flip side it's pretty amazing how many times certain people show up at AE and yet don't get blocked. Sir Joseph (talk) 22:32, 10 July 2020 (UTC)

  • Atsme, you're most definitely welcome! It seems like there is a nice welcoming community after all on Wiki, just took a little while to find them. I do have a couple of follow up questions, as that TPUSA RFC was the first I had ever participated in as well as BLP noticeboard discussion. The experience was quite enlightening for a semi new editor. I tried to keep up with the BLP noticeboard activity but it hit the top of the queue and disappeared, I wasnt sure what happened with that, was there an arbitration ruling over it or is it just gone now? Also as far as the RFC there hasnt really been any new comments on it, and the consensus wasn't super clear on a direct verdict for the section in question (although there seemed to be unanimous agreement to trim it down a bit at the very least). What is the protocol now to resolve the edits on that particular section? Once again thank you for your time, its very much appreciated.Eruditess (talk) 7:39 pm, 16 July 2020, Thursday (19 days ago) (UTC−4) (reply)
  • Hi, Eruditess! I read you loud and clear about the welcoming but I must say that you'll find many more welcoming editors away from the controversial topic areas like AP2. See the AE 2019 AP2 log for some insight. There is also Wikipedia:Arbitration enforcement log where you can find a list of the various topics subject to DS. Regarding the TPUSA BLP/N, RfCs and surveys, it doesn't surprise me when WP:PAGs are ignored - sometimes WP can appear to represent a microcosm of the anarchy we see in the RW. We also have WP:IAR, although I doubt that it was created with anarchy in mind, but that's debatable. I don't think it should apply to NPOV or consensus, but I'm only one voice. An admin should never use their tools or status if they are involved in a content dispute - I don't see how the two can be separated - and it does happen occasionally which tends to magnify the double standards. If it's a case where no incivility is involved and the editor still gets blocked, there are excuses for that, too, with the most popular being WP:CPUSH; however, I believe it aligns more with WP:POV railroad, intentional or otherwise - the behavioral patterns are obvious. Based on my own experiences, the prevailing perspective is whatever aligns with the Systemic bias in Wikipedia, especially in the AP2 topic area during a presidential election year. Few admins want to get involved in politics anyway, and who can blame them? It is highly divisive, so it's not hard to guess which POV has the most aggressive POV warriors, most of which are not hesitant to bully their way in. Look at what just happened over at the New York Times, something to which I can relate based on the bullying right here on my UTP and elsewhere, such as this question, this warning, the discussion that devolved here, which I attempted to clarify here and am now borderline regretting it, and this one. When you get a little time, you might consider reading the May Signpost op-ed, and also read How Woke Are We? with its included links. The best advice I can give you at this point is WP:DGAF and you'll be just fine.mm Atsme Talk 📧 18:19, 17 July 2020 (UTC)

Wishing you a Charlie Brown

Best wishes for your Christmas
Is all you get from me
'Cause I ain't no Santa Claus
Don't own no Christmas tree.
But if wishes was health and money
I'd fill your buck-skin poke
Your doctor would go hungry
An' you never would be broke."
—C.M. Russell, Christmas greeting 1914.

Thank you, Montanabw. I imagine it's snowing where you are right now, so snuggle up by the fireplace and stay warm. I hear a fire in the fireplace is ok on Christmas Eve because Santa has an alternate route. xmas🎁 Atsme📞📧 20:37, 24 December 2015 (UTC)

Holiday Cheer + a barnstar[edit]

The Happy Holiday Barnstar
How about combining a Barnstar with a Christmas Card? That is why this message is appearing on your talk page. Simultaneously and at the same time, this barnstar is conferred upon you because during this past year you worked and contributed your time to improve the encyclopedia. You also have received far too little recognition for your contributions. In addition, this is a small attempt at spreading holiday cheer. I've appreciated all the things that you have done for me.

Awwwe, Kudz - thank you! The well wishes themselves are what make the holidays happy, not the templates they come in. Add to that, the holiday music and watching Miracle on 34th Street, and I get so santa-mental. xmas Atsme📞📧 04:48, 21 December 2017 (UTC)

Peace Dove Christmas[edit]

Peace is a state of balance and understanding in yourself and between others, where respect is gained by the acceptance of differences, tolerance persists, conflicts are resolved through dialog, peoples rights are respected and their voices are heard, and everyone is at their highest point of serenity without social tension.

WereSpielChequers, maybe some day when you have time you can share the story of the swimming bear. Atsme✍🏻📧 01:38, 24 December 2018 (UTC)
Dear Atsme, others have already done so. But we can hope that archaeologists more cold tolerant than me will find more out about them in the future. ϢereSpielChequers 09:17, 24 December 2018 (UTC)
WSC, the {{{{cold}}}} part came in loud and clear! Several years ago, I met a family who live in Nova Scotia and they invited me to visit them in Halifax. While there, I learned about the Northwest Territory and Nunavut based on stories they told me about family members born and raised in that part of the world and what they had to do to survive. It sparked my interest in producing a special for Discovery, so when I got back to the US, I submitted a treatment (pre-script). It captured the interest of an exec who walked it over to legal within a week of receiving it. Legal quickly squelched it because they considered parts of the documentary "too controversial". My treatment focused on the plight of the native peoples (modern day hunters and gatherers) and what they had to do to survive the cold, feed their children and overcome life-threatening obstacles in some of the most forboding areas in the world. At that time, the animal rights movement was at its peak, and apparently the need for human beings to eat and stay warm by utilizing animals (particularly white baby seals) is what legal considered controversial. Atsme✍🏻📧 12:44, 24 December 2018 (UTC)
That sounds like marketing rather than legal, but yes I can see that the sort of people who get upset at my eating venison and call me a cannibal for eating rabbit will go ape over the culling of baby seals, even where it is traditional hunting. ϢereSpielChequers 13:16, 24 December 2018 (UTC)

To all my WikiFriends, 2021 is upon us![edit]

It's ok if WP editors are amateurs. Just remember: Noah's Ark was built by amateurs – the Titanic was built by professionals. Thanks for helping to build the encyclopedia!

2021!!
  • Out with the old, in with the new!! I'll remember 2019 like it was yesterday!
  • Remember, a New Year's resolution is something that goes in one year and out the other.

Happy New Year!
Hello Atsme:


Did you know ... that back in 1885, Wikipedia editors wrote Good Articles with axes, hammers and chisels?

Thank you for your contributions to this encyclopedia using 21st century technology. I hope you don't get any unnecessary blisters.
