Stepping back

Going to try another stab at focusing on content work, and follow advice by BD2412 and Abd.

-- Cirt (talk) 20:01, 29 January 2015 (UTC)

Further in the attempt at stepping back as advised by BD2412, created new page, Psychobabble. -- Cirt (talk) 20:59, 29 January 2015 (UTC)
I've removed all the relevant pages to the recent discussions from my watchlist. -- Cirt (talk) 21:14, 29 January 2015 (UTC)
  • If that's what it takes, s'okay. You are not obligated to watch everything. Good luck. --Abd (talk) 22:54, 29 January 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. -- Cirt (talk) 23:45, 29 January 2015 (UTC)

Please consider unblocking Miszatomic

Checkusers have been discussing the Miszatomic issue and the WP SPI investigation page has been changed, [1] and Miszatomic has been unblocked. The identifications of Miszatomic with Jodie Fosteur, DanielTom6 and DanielTom7 have been retracted.

There are obviously still issues regarding Miszatomic's continuation as an administrator, but the case just got much better for unblocking Miszatomic, and removing those sock tags. The two "overvoters" may remain appropriately tagged.

Please consider that. Thanks. --Abd (talk) 04:32, 30 January 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svgY Done. -- Cirt (talk) 12:23, 30 January 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. Well done (including the initial block reduction).
Now, unfinished business. Wikiquote:Requests for adminship/Miszatomic (removal) is hopelessly prejudiced now, a disaster. Rather than try to correct it, I suggest this: withdraw the request. So far, nobody has supported the removal, so I'd support it being hatted by you on the basis of error and no support being shown for removal. If someone other than you still wants the issue open, they can start a new one, hopefully after the smoke clears, and hopefully clean. There is no emergency, Miszatomic is very unlikely to abuse the tools. This is not an argument that he did nothing wrong. He screwed up badly. But the issue is the way forward for everyone. Thanks. --Abd (talk) 14:28, 30 January 2015 (UTC)
Yes check.svgY Done, please see DIFF. -- Cirt (talk) 14:36, 30 January 2015 (UTC)
Wow! Super! Thanks. --Abd (talk) 14:38, 30 January 2015 (UTC)
You're most welcome, Abd, and thank you for the wise suggestions. -- Cirt (talk) 14:39, 30 January 2015 (UTC)

and about RfA/Kalki

Much has transpired since you voted in Wikiquote:Requests for adminship/Kalki (4th request). We aren't expected to be perfect, fortunately, but you may wish to reconsider your vote/comment there, perhaps with a judicious use of striking (or even a change of position, up to you). I understand your concerns, but some of what you wrote was shown to be inaccurate. I won't belabor the obvious.

I love unanimity, and sometimes we can even reach it. It's worth striving for. Genuine unity is powerful, it creates effective communities.

I did blank your comment about Miszatomic's vote, it wasn't relevant to the RfA. Even if he had been the vandal sock master, and even if he had triple voted (he did that one), his vote would stand singly and that he was so strongly in favor that he would sock doesn't change that. --Abd (talk) 15:45, 30 January 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svgY Done. Struck my Oppose, DIFF. Changed to Support, DIFF. -- Cirt (talk) 16:00, 30 January 2015 (UTC)
Also, apologized to Miszatomic, at DIFF. -- Cirt (talk) 16:15, 30 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Brilliant! I can't stand it! My heart! Ahh rrkk wa;pna[a
  • Seriously, though I'm 70, my heart is in great shape, last checked. --Abd (talk) 18:54, 30 January 2015 (UTC)
    • My pleasure, Abd, thanks again for all your wise suggestions and advice. -- Cirt (talk) 21:09, 30 January 2015 (UTC)
