Thanks for the vandalism help. Did you revert all the rest of it? Cirt (talk) 07:46, 10 December 2009 (UTC)

You are welcome. And yes, it has all been reverted. Tiptoety talk 07:48, 10 December 2009 (UTC)

re IP block exempt[edit]

Yeah, it seems even though I promoted him to IP-block-exempt, he still will not give up with his walls of text postings. He also appears to be compiling userspace-subpages as attack-pages - see "outrage" in title of one of them. Thoughts on what can be done about that behavior pattern? -- Cirt (talk) 05:24, 5 November 2010 (UTC)

I don't see that there is any need for anything to be "done" about this at all. Kalki's lengthy postings are in the context of discussions. If he were posting them in articles it would be problem, but he isn't so it is entirely proper, even if he gets carried away in terms of length and tenor. As for his userspace pages, I see no cause for concern. Really, what does it matter what he squirrels away on a subpage? The real question, I think, is: how do we harness Kalki's considerable energy and enthusiasm for the purpose to which it was being put before all this drama erupted, that being the improvement of our collections? BD2412 T 19:21, 5 November 2010 (UTC)
There is a problem with him titling the page of his choice as "outrage", and directing his postings and vitriol against other users in such a fashion. -- Cirt (talk) 19:46, 5 November 2010 (UTC)
I doubt anyone else will ever look at subpages in his userspace, and his decision to title this one an "outrage" is just a matter of opinion. Frankly, I think anyone who chanced to read the hyperbolic conversations transposed there would come away with the opinion that Kalki's reaction far outpaces the import of the dispute. BD2412 T 20:00, 5 November 2010 (UTC)
Well, at least for the most part I agree with your last sentence in this prior comment. Still think it inappropriate to call the page "outrage", the word could be removed from the title with no other impact to the utilitarian nature of the user subpage. -- Cirt (talk) 20:01, 5 November 2010 (UTC)

I asked him to remove the word "outrage" from the title, it only resulted in reply with more walls of text, [1]. Sigh. -- Cirt (talk) 08:36, 6 November 2010 (UTC)

I would say take the higher ground and move on. Ignoring it will accomplish more than trying to make a deal out of it. Tiptoety talk 17:37, 6 November 2010 (UTC)
Alright. -- Cirt (talk) 00:20, 7 November 2010 (UTC)

OTRS Pending for Lewis Pugh??[edit]

Dear Tiptoety

I found you through your edit history on my page (Lewis Gordon Pugh http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Lewis_Gordon_Pugh), & then found you are also an OTRS volunteer. I am hoping, adding 2 & 2 together, that this might mean that you are in the process of seeking/ securing OTRS permission for the 3 images I have sought clearance for. Since these images have been removed from my site in the interim, firstly I am anxious to have them cleared & reinstated as soon as possible. Secondly, I am unable to track any OTRS progress in the interim given that, without the files on Commons any longer, no updates (ie. 'pending', or otherwise) can be observed there. Please, I would be grateful if you could check on OTRS progress on these 3 images (originally removed by Fastily) for me - even if simply to clarify the editorial changes you were making to my page as logged on 27 Feb, & if this was related. I would be grateful for any indication of how long securing of permissions might take, or of any obstacles so far unrelayed to me that might be responsible for a delay, & that I could help with to speed things along.

With much gratitude Lewispugh (talk) 09:46, 7 March 2012 (UTC)

Hi Lewispugh, unfortunately, I was not editing the page in my role as an OTRS agent, nor have I been handling the ticket(s) you are referring to. That said, I will add it to my to-do-list and take a look when I have time. Cheers, Tiptoety talk 07:15, 8 March 2012 (UTC)

Update for OTRS?[edit]

Many many thanks for offering to pursue Tiptoety; I'm still struggling to find any evidence of progress or track any changes with regards to my 3 OTRS 'tickets' (?) so would be glad of any prioritised help. Even a steer as to where I might be able to view a status update, to see if permissions are even pending? Is there anything that I myself can do? Can these imags not be reinstated provisionally with the Template:OTRS Pending label applied? Your advice would be much appreciated at such a frustrating time, thank you so much. Lewispugh (talk) 09:55, 13 March 2012 (UTC)

I have replied to the OTRS tickets. That said, it does not appear you are the copyright holder. Tiptoety talk 00:22, 14 March 2012 (UTC)

Final query[edit]

Ticket reponses received, thank you - if frustrating. I didn't purport to be the (original) copyright holder but, having had his permission in perpetuity, believed (mistakenly) that I could apply on his behalf if supplying all his details. The Wiki Commons wisdom seemed to suggest this was an option? Presumably only he can now apply in person, unless i myself can still reapply for permissions attaching an existing 'copyright contract', as such? Given that - between ourselves - he has granted me copyright clearance for all his images, wholesale, would we still need to submit individual 'tickets' for each single image in question, or can he submit a 'blanket' free licence to OTRS for all images of his of me that i might potentially want to use on Wiki pages in future? Thinking there must be an economies-of-scale process here? Many thanks for your feedback for resolution. Lewispugh (talk) 09:14, 14 March 2012 (UTC)
