It's about Windows Media Player this time. This time, I did read the deletion log closely enough to figure out that the deleting administrator was Olipro and the cited reason was a HTBFANJS violation. The basis for my dispute is that (1) we just had a successful merge from "Wmp.dll", which in my opinion improved the article just enough that it could have survived if it had been tagged {{rewrite}} or put to a Pee Review. This brings me to the second point: (2) The tags on the article were inaccurate. I should have realized that the two copies of {{crap}} would not actually be interpreted by administrators as {{rewrite}}.

More importantly, I feel slighted because this is another case where I thrashed around making minor edits and requesting a merge in good faith, creating recent-changes activity that led to further scrutiny. Had I known that the article would be shot on sight, I never would have wasted time by requesting a merge. I feel that at the time of deletion the article was not quite a HTBFANJS violation, especially compared to a lot of other trash, so it should at least have been given the dignity of a QVFD. (I would have said VFD, but VFD is currently too backlogged for my mind to keep track of it.) Is there any possibility we might be able to userfy the article as it last stood to either its original creator (if that user is active) or this location in my userspace to allow further review?

I understand that userfied articles might be treated even more stringently than they are on Wikipedia, but I am just trying to assert my rights (sorry if I am overstepping my bounds by asserting my ego instead). I would like to remind you again about the forum discussion about noobs (but I have no other Aspie to make excuses for this time).

Thank you for your time and help.

What do you mean deleted? *whistles* -- Prof. Olipro Icons-flag-gb KUN (W)Anchor Op Bur. (Harass) 02:24, 8 June 2007 (UTC)

So, why would you dump a couple paragraphs of bitching into a forum post when you already figured out who you needed to talk to? As far as I can tell, your request should have been made on Olipro's talk page, and not here. Was it sheer ignorance, or a general need to inflate your ego by proclaiming to the world that you had been slighted? Unless I'm missing something, it seems that Oli was more than happy to restore your article.

I guess I'm just a little confused about when we instituted the policy that public bitching and whining about something inherently trivial became preferred over a polite message on the admin's talk page. As I noted here, I don't hate n00bs - I hate ones who don't/can't/won't read.

Perhaps you should read this a week or two ago. It will save you a lot of trouble if you do. And if you can manage to do that, I won't be thinking about a swift kick to your ass right about now. Bone_F_clear.png Sir Famine, Gun Petition » 06/8 21:47

Oh, great. That was just like saying "Don't think of purple elephants.". Now I'm going to be thinking about a swift kick in P5.1's ass all day. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 23:23, 8 June 2007 (UTC)
