Scale of justice gold.jpgThis user values third opinions and occasionally provides one.

You may request a Wikipedia:Third Opinion on disputes arising from minor difference of opinion on edits done to pages. Please append an entry to my Talk page so we can look at what is taking place. Third Opinions should be solicited as a form of Wikipedia:Requests_for_comment as part of the Wikipedia:Resolving_disputes process prior to requesting formal arbitration.

Public Watch List[edit]

See my User:Damotclese User page for details about which pages I work with.

Current Activities[edit]

Updated 01/May/15

  • I reduced the number of RFC channels that I'll respond to, there are just so many pages one can watch or maintain or answer discussions about in a day, and I've been getting bogged down in wilderness safety training this year.
  • Taking a look again at the Scientology crime syndicate's The Delphian School page which is basically a stub.
  • Finished adding section Examples of Situation Awareness On The Job to Situation Awareness -- The page continues to be updated from time to time however a formal re-write to organize the page really is needed.
  • Looked at Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada which has a conflict on-going. One of the issues right now on that article is that it lacks WP:NPOV in that the phrase false allegations is not neutral. That was resolved however it is still subject to ideology-based edits so I continue to watch it.
  • The Crystal Lake Recreation Area page had a Talk comment about how some section of it appearsed to be advertising. I need to fix that but also the page is generally containing obsolete information. UPDATE: The individual who suggested the page contains advertising never responded for specific suggestions on how to correct the text she found needed to be fixed.
  • Need to create Curve Fire page. It is referenced in various places, notably the Windy Gap Trail page. UPDATE: The history of the Curve Fire may be getting supplanted on the Internet by the effects of the Colby Fire which also needs a page to be created.
  • (Finished) Talk:M-87_Orkan Chemical munitions were not found deployed in Iraq, nor were any such munitions interdicted on their way to Iraq. Responded to RFC. UPDATE: The RFC was adopted however the page still needs to be watched in case the issue returns.
  • Looking at the Boy Scouts of America entry, thinking that it is greatly inaccurate though noting that it is not very likely that the religious among us will welcome accurate updates to the entry. Update: The entry on the BSofA is being updated routinely anyway so I won't be doing any active editing.
  • Bridge To Nowhere in the San Gabriel Mountains -- The trail along East Fork is covered by several million pounds of rock at about 1.56 miles in, North 34 degrees 15.440 by West 117 degrees 45.053 at 2271 feet altitude.
  • Resolved and closed a dispute on the File 18 entry -- which was a silly dispute easily ruled.
  • Watching MMR vaccine controversy again since a WP:SAP is making inappropriate edits despite assistance from a number of editors to revert broken links and other ideology-based proposed updates.
  • Also I have to wonder what happened to User:BiologistBabe who was working on a number of pages. She works in the arena of infectious diseases so I hope nothing happened to her.
  • Adding Scientology's Narconon frauds to my watchlist since there are a number of criminal indictments and civil lawsuits which will likely prompt further vandalism from Scientology people. In fact I suppose I should dive back in to that mess for a while since there will be a push to vandalize Scientology pages when David Miscavigie is dragged in to court in Comal County, Texas.
Some of the warring editors in this have been sending our solicitation emails to people asking them to come and take their sides in the discussion.

Pacific Crest Trail Association[edit]

There needs to be a new page for Pacific Crest Trail Association which is being referenced on the Pacific Crest Trail page. That should be created along with the Angeles_volunteer_association and San Gabriel Mountains Trailbuilders and West Fork Conservancy pages, all of which work on or surrounding the PCT.

AVA page created today Damotclese (talk) 19:32, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

--> Past Talk Page Archives <--[edit]

Because I get a lot of RFC requests I move them to archives, generally twice a year. If you are looking for previous information on my Talk, you can find them in these archives. I used to just delete old stuff so if you're wanting to go back even further, ah well, that's too bad, it's gone forever:
