banned from french wikipedia

Post by Proabivouac » Thu Jun 28, 2018 9:22 am

I only realize some six plus years after the fact that I've been banned forever from French WIkipedia:

Here are my very globally trollish and vandalistic edits to French Wikipedia, discussing the pronuciation of Los Angeles:

Nothing was oversighted. That is all I ever posted there because my French sucks.

What is Darkoneko, is that some kind of London scene gerbil thing?

And on the Dutch trollopedia you are even global locked. Funny, I noticed it before in a discussion between you and shahi, you seems to have a basic knowledge of Dutch. Can you read it or do you speak Dutch?
And see it as a compliment, who is not blocked is geen (no) knip (snap of my fingers) voor de neus waard (worth in front of his nose)..

Strange, Aggie tried to learn Dutch, Shasi is interested in Dutch, and you to. Maybe I must start online lessons Dutch as a native Dutch speaker. For free of course :).

He's apparently made enemies. He has an Urban Dictionary entry:

https://www.urbandictionary.com/define. ... =DarkoNeko
DarkoNeko is a french wikipedia steward, known for his bad temper and his love for everything ressembling a cat.
zOMG, Darkoneko banned someone...again *sigh*
That entry was made in 2008, so he's been pissing off people for nearly ten years.

The answer is that I can't, but I have to as part of my work since there are so many important colonial-era Dutch sources. I can understand a termlist of basic vocabulary, but not people's description of what they ate for breakfast. You can see my work on Dutch Wiktionary, adding entries for words that even most native speakers no longer use or never used to begin with. For example, what is a klapperdop? It is a coconut shell where "klapper" is a loan from Malay <kelapa>. My work here wasn't fantastic, but it was certainly performed in good faith.

Or he wrote that himself?

I checked your edits there, you are absolute a friendly, good willing user. There is not any, any reason to block you on that project.

I'm sorry to have troubled you all with my ignorance.Proabivouac 18 aug 2009 23:20 (CEST)
??? How do you mean?? This is fun, keep it coming. Jcwf 18 aug 2009 23:55 (CEST)


Hello Proabivouac,

I would also like to welcome you at the Dutch WikiWoordenboek. You have already made good contributions here! If you have any questions, feel free to ask them on my talk page or on the talk page of another user (like Grunnen, Wikibelgiaan, etc). We're happy to help you. Keep up the good work!

Kind regards, Tvdm 19 aug 2009 21:03 (CEST)


But they are always shitting on people, Prove. They don't look at your work, the only matter is if they like you or not.

And I know the word klapper, but I don't think young people does in The Netherlands. Klappermelk, cocos milk.
And that is because when I was young many people the formal KNIL, the Royal Netherlands East Indies Army came to Holland because they were kicked out of Maluku Islands and Indonesia. All of a sudden we had brown colored children in our class room who where always complaining it was so cold and who spoke a bit strange kind of Dutch, and they where using this kind of words. There have been a lot of trouble (Dutch train hijacking, 1977 for instance) with there integration in that time, but now they are just extraordinair Dutch people. But for instance parts of the Dutch kitchen are still Indonesian because of there influence and the colonial past. Nasi goreng and peanut sauce is now normal Dutch food. They intruded it. You can buy the ingredients or the products ready to eat in every supermarket in Holland, even in small villages.

It wasn't the Dutch who blocked me, rather programmers on meta scrambled my password because I'd opposed Lar and Cary Bass in their steward reconfirmations. Bass won, of course, but Lar did not. On WIkiwoordenboek, I was mainly creating entries like this one:

https://nl.wiktionary.org/wiki/kroonduif

My Dutch wasn't good enough to fill them out completely and correctly, but I knew that they needed to exist and native speaking contributors took it from there. Despite all my problems with Wikimedia structures and licenses, I remember the small WIkiwoordenboek crowd as friendly and positive and learning was flowing in both directions. But Lar's supporters on Meta didn't care about this project so fired away indiscriminately. I was never globally banned; rather they hacked and scrambled my password (and falsely reported me to other boards as a spammer.)

All that said, I knew that I was risking my account when I showed up on meta to begin with. I set out to overthrow Lar and I did. So I am not a victim, at least not in this way.

You are a specialist in a for us, the Dutch, interesting field. The Dutch colonial past. And that makes you to a interesting user for them, and because they can help you whit the Dutch language it was a win-win situation. But isn't it insane someone on Meta who doesn't know anything about the Dutch Wikiwoordenboek takes the decision to forbid you to edit there?
