This is a call for help on the Kashmiri Wikipedia.
There has been some
conflict recently over which scripts ought to be used. If anyone has
any experience with, or knowledge of, the Kashmiri language, I invite
you to participate in the discussion at
Currently there seem to be only two users on this Wikipedia. One is Rk
kaul, and the other is Node-ue. Rk kaul has accused Node-ue of
vandalism since he is apparently replacing pages with some sort of
unintelligible machine translation.
An additional problem on this Wikipedia is that Node-ue has been
editing under various sockpuppet accounts, and also anonymously. He
managed to deceitfully gain adminship for two days after creating the
account "User:Akka Akka" which was desysopped after complaints about
his behaviour. He is also editing under the account "User:Bbbbbbbbb"
and being generally abusive to the other user on the wiki.
If anyone is able to help or offer suggestions, it would be much appreciated.
I resent this accusation.
As I have told Angela before, I am neither of these users.
It should be obvious from my support to many different small
Wikipedias that this is not the sort of thing I would do.
If I want to be abusive, I don't do it anonymously or under a name
that is not mine, I own up to it.
You may offer up tokipona: as evidence to the contrary, however I will
make two points on that: 1. I never said it wasn't me and took
responsibility for these actions immediately, 2. I did that IGF,
regardless of whether it was a good or bad decision, and I do not see
how such abuse as has occured on the Kashmiri Wikipedia by all parties
involved could be claimed to be IGF because I do not see how I or
anyone else could even try to begin to justify it.
For those of you that frequent #wikipedia, you will note that when I
get upset and use abusive language, I never do it anonymously.
After the very recent argument where in fact Angela and I took
opposing sides with regards to policy for creating new Wikipedias, I
don't see how anybody could reasonably pin such behaviour on me.
