Wikipedia is celebrating its 15th birthday on January 15, 2016. I have thought for a while that it would be neat to meet some local wikipedians. According to the wikipedians in Winnipeg or Wikipedians in Manitoba category you are one of us. I am contacting people in this category to say: Let's celebrate this milestone. If you know other wikipedians, please ask them to join in as well.
I am posting this to your talk page as a transclude so that any updates will show up automatically.
One other Winnipeg Wikipedian showed up, in addition to a number of regular skullspace members. It was nice to actually talk to someone else who has worked with Mediawiki and actually "gets" transclusion. Cake was eaten! Tenbergen (talk) 06:37, 16 January 2016 (UTC)

A barnstar for you!

|Thank you for defending the correct spelling of the medieval state's name, which is a derivative from Kyiv. I appreciate Ukrainian Wikipedia's editors work for establishing and renewing the right image of Ukraine in the world. Dim.yttrium (talk) 20:53, 14 November 2020 (UTC)|
ArbCom 2020 Elections voter message
I have closed the AE complaint by imposing the following topic ban on you: a one year prohibition against anything to do with Kyiv, broadly construed. I will note it in the log. Anyway, while I had originally intended to impose a ban which was more narrow in that it only involved a prohibition against changing Kiev-to-Kyiv, your rather inexplicable misconduct during the report itself, convinced myself and the other admins reviewing the complaint to go with a wider ban. Frankly, to me, it feels like you've taken advantage of my good nature, though I bear you no ill will. A word of caution, then: if you are to violate this ban, I estimate the chances of you ending up before the Committee to be great. In fact, there's a decent chance for that to happen regardless. A lot of folks out there already feel that sanctions are incompatible with advanced permissions (as a matter of competence or whatever), not to mention when inexplicable behaviour on the part of the admin facing the complaint takes place during the AE proceeding itself. In any case, I'm not going to be the one to launch any Arbitration proceeding against you (though I may comment if someone else does), but I still thought it worthwhile to make note of. Finally, I had detailed on the report in question the three avenues of appeal which are at your disposal. El_C 02:26, 16 December 2020 (UTC)
- El_C, I am sorry that I wasn’t able to submit my response before the closing (to be clear, my comment meant that I was working on it, along with a couple of questions about the changing procedure, but I had not finished writing with the intention to submit). I take responsibility for my own very long and unfortunately abortive delay.
- However, I may appeal. Most of the complaints against me were content disagreements, and I believe extensive discussion in the final day swayed your opinion regarding “disruptive editing” (for example, for consistency with consensus spelling on the same line and throughout the rest of the article, including at least one identical mention).
