What again?

I'm a long term user (first edit 2006) and have been an admin on or off since 2017. That makes me a bit stuck in my ways but I have the benefit of experience and working through many of the changes that have left us where we are. I am getting grumpy. Sorry but all the drama and grief has washed away a lot of my younger idealism...

A BLP is a serious matter and needs to be properly sourced.

I mostly work on deletion discussions. I am willing to userfy deleted articles for improvement as long as there is a reasonable likelihood that they can be saved. If you are challenging a deletion, do you have three good sources? Also, don’t waste your time asking me to review a close or you are going to DRV because I’m not going to review a close with a sword hanging over my head. Just raise the DRV or ask someone else.

Please don't leave talkback templates as I always watchlist pages when I edit and I'm perfectly capable of looking for a reply myself.

Sorry to hear

While I disagree with your "kangaroo court" assertion (especially because I noticed specifically your absence from the case and Wikipedia more generally) but I am genuinely saddened by this comment. Know I will be looking at the evidence again as I consider my votes but beyond this case, I really hope you find your way back to Wikipedia. We're a better place with you here.

I appreciate your various actions on Wikipedia over the last few months.John Pack Lambert (talk) 19:45, 30 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Then there is where someone complains about my comment, admits they do not feel like it is a violation, but are still complaining for no good reason. Wikipedia is a wearing place at times.John Pack Lambert (talk) 19:59, 10 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

List of cricketers

Hello. We do have a pretty extensive set of lists of cricketers, per your comment at the John West AfD (I find myself nearly calling him Fred all the time...). In that case, there is an obvious list to redirect to, for example. There are a few sub continent lists that probably need to be created, and the odd one elsewhere. What sort of list were you thinking about? It wonder if a central list of lists on the wikiproject would be helpful? Blue Square Thing (talk) 09:35, 15 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

By decade and club would be my preference. Categories are better for navigation. Spartaz Humbug! 16:09, 15 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ok, so I'm not quite sure I understand how that would work - and the work overhead concerns me a little. I think I can see the point, but it depends on the format we'd be looking at. Can I throw three lists at you and ask you to think about possible formats and how you'd break them down? No worries if you don't have time, it's an idea that intrigues me.
By breaking down by decade, say, (or, perhaps, period - e.g. 1919 to 39) would you look for more detail, stats or just plain lists?
Fwiw I disagree about cats, but then I've never really enjoyed using them. Blue Square Thing (talk) 18:58, 15 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
