New page reviewer

(add requestview requests)

User:L293D

I have created 12 articles, I have 1 DYK and 1 GA, 13,000 edits, been here for seven months so I believe I am qualified for NPP. Last time I came here, my request was declined by Alex Shih and Amorymeltzer because of an now 2 month old AWB screw-up where I got too hot and an error in accepting drafts (where I kept cool). I would like to take part in the NPP backlog drive that will start the 20th. Thanks. L293D ( • ) 16:33, 16 June 2018 (UTC)

L293D, no prejudice on the request, but I don't believe you have addressed why you were requesting G6 for article credit; that was the reason why the "error in accepting drafts" appeared to be very strange. At the time of your previous declined request, both of the incidents that you have mentioned here were less than month old, so your statement here is slightly misleading. Alex Shih (talk) 16:48, 16 June 2018 (UTC)
Alex Shih: The G6 thing was because I wanted to do a DYK of it and I thought the page had to be created in the past week, but now I learned that there is a "created from redirect" option that works also. And I reworded my request to clarify that that AWB incident in now two months old. L293D ( • ) 17:37, 16 June 2018 (UTC)
"An error in accepting drafts" seems euphemistic, can you explain why you did that and what was wrong? My concern is that those actions and the G6 request are connected in motive. And I'm not really sure what went on at Russian reversal. ~ Amory (utc) 16:17, 17 June 2018 (UTC)
@Amorymeltzer: You and Alex Shih raised a couple points over this request, so I'll try to explain as I can. As I said earlier, my asking TonyBallioni to G6 Comites Jeanne was first, to make a DYK of it (but there is actually a "created from redirect" option when nominating the article for DYK, so this was mere ignorance on my part), and second so the article would show up in my Xtools article creation page. Both were bad reasons for G6, and it was an error on my part to request it. The AWB screw-up was a horrible error on my part and I got way too hot in the subsequent discussion, so I'll readily apologize for that. The draft affair is a different matter; you didn't write it here, but I suspect you think I intentionally copy pasted them drafts so I could say I wrote them. This is not true: if I had wanted to take credit for their creation, I would have listed them on my user page, along with my other article creations. I didn't. The reason I did it is because they needed a lot of ironing (e.g. the references needed to be formatted, the stub template had to be moved to the bottom...) so I copy-pasted the text to the article, did the work and then published the page, instead of submitting with AFCH, accepting with AFCH, then doing the ironing and more. My idea was to save useless edits and time for everyone, but it was actually a bad one. With this explained, I hope you can consider my request. L293D ( • ) 21:37, 17 June 2018 (UTC)
I don't think I'd call it "a lot of ironing," as the only changes you made to any of those were simply to move a template down and fill out bare references in a {{cite web}} or some such. I'd be somewhat inclined to grant this on a trial basis, but I don't think you've yet explained what was wrong about what you did? ~ Amory (utc) 14:39, 18 June 2018 (UTC)
My edit was a direct violation of WP:C&P and I already apologized here, here,and here!!!!! You seem to be confusing this page with RfA. There's no need to dig up (semi) old things that are for the most part, totally irrelevant to NPP. Will I destroy the wiki with this user right? Probably not. I'm sick of this discussion. Just decline this based on my incivility here or accept my request, but let's stop with the RfA-style discussion. L293D ( • ) 13:45, 19 June 2018 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────I'm very sorry if you feel attacked or that I am being over-scrutinizing — that is certainly very far from my intention, and I apologize for making you feel that way. My goal was never to demand an apology — you've been contrite from the beginning — but merely to get an explanation of what was wrong in terms of policy. As part of NPP one can expect to find numerous contributions that do not meet our policies or guidelines for inclusion, including copy-pasted material. In the course of the above conversation I asked twice for an explanation, offering a chance for you to allay concerns and show your understanding of the policy despite having violated it in April. As I indicated above, I was considering granting this on a trial basis, but I will remove myself in favor of another sysop making the call. ~ Amory (utc) 22:16, 19 June 2018 (UTC)

It's OK, I apologize for being rude, I was just getting tired of this. Pinging @TonyBallioni: and @Xaosflux:, as they are the ones who handle PERM requests most. L293D ( • ) 19:34, 20 June 2018 (UTC)
