    A message from a valued co-editor and friend.

     Hallo, dear old Carptrash. Still insisting on behaving like a human rather than a wikipedian? 

    My "I Edit Wikipedia" tee-shirt design
    hard at work
    You should see the other guy
    Saved by Rock n Roll User box.jpeg
    This editor is an anarcho-wikipedian user box.jpg

    Who am I?[edit]

    My work space, now.
    verb (used without object)
    to find fault or complain querulously or unreasonably; be niggling in criticizing; cavil:
    to carp at minor errors.
    a peevish complaint.
    And if you don’t know “trash” you probably won’t do very well on English wikipedia.

    There is another longer and more complicated explanation involving a several step process getting there from another internet name, “carpe mañana” to carptrash. But that’s for another day.


    I am in fact not me at all but a sock puppet. For those of you, or both of you, or whomever reads this, the rational is clearly laid out here.

    Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Gamaliel (suddenly there is nothing there! This was a blue link 4 minutes ago.)

    The proof is that after a month or so of my first editing I was making significant edits (gee, maybe that's why I started editing?) and then more than a dozen years later I reverted something that an editor did not want reverted and lo-and-behold, I must be a sock. Food for thought.

    Breitbart News has this to say about me:
    "All mention of the Ngo assault was subsequently removed by editor “Carptrash,” whose profile page includes multiple images of himself in an anarchist shirt, one time while brandishing a blunt instrument."
    Just for the record, those pictures were of my Halloween costume that year, in one of them I am wearing a tiara , hardly standard antifa issue.

    I just resurrected[edit]

    this old section of my user page, the so called "23 (sometimes 27) words and phrases" .

    I have a list of words or phrases that, to me, when I hear them or read them, or say them or write them, typically mean, "in my opinion."

      1. "Everybody who isn't a paid whore can see" (a great new one from a wikipedia discussion)
      2. "according to all accounts" (ran into this today-not referenced)

    Feel free to add more


    An editor (of course anonymous) posted of me, "Furthermore, the definition (of racism) that Carptrash added is communist/far-left propaganda. Any source that says "institutional, structural, and systemic" when discussing racism is using far-left polemic garbage from the Marxist, anti-Semitic, and anti-white critical race theory pseudoscientific ideology." (Back to me) I want to state that I am not now, nor ever have been a member of the Communist Party and certainly do not consider myself to be a Marxist, anti-semitic or anti-white. Often at these moments I am accused of being anti-male, so I will deny that too.

    Now I discover, while I am complaining about the SPLC that, ""Scratch a group complaining about the SPLC, and there's a 99.9% likelihood you'll find a hate group." So what do you think, am I a Marxist leftist or a Confederate loving' right wing hate group member? It's so confusing. Carptrash (talk) 00:06, 15 October 2017 (UTC)

    A "conversation" with wikipedia[edit]

    I'd like to thank the Wikipedia Foundation for their recognition of my editing efforts. Although the process was not seamless I have long come to understand that there are speed bumps on the road of life and if I hit them wrong it can create a bit of a jarring effect.


    just found this

    I have declared all my edits to be a diabolic mixture of opinion and original research. Just so that I can't be accused of doing this anonymously, the names I've used while posting pictures are EEK, eek, Einar Einarson Kvaran and probably a few more variations on this.

    However, I am now amending this stance to state that all of my edits are carefully and thoroughly researched and if the documentation seems to be missing it is just because some vandal probably removed it.

    I feel that I am likely in the top one million editors in both number of edits and number of articles created. However I am much more proud to include myself in the Top 100 Monkeys.

    And further more[edit]

    Parducci and me in Midland MI, USA

    I just discovered that my 5th anniversary (July 2009) on wikipedia just passed. Life is supposed to be interesting.
    I also just discovered some links at the bottom of my user page that informed me that I've done over 10,000 edits and created 139 articles. Life goes on.
    And I can now update this to my 10th year here and 20,000 edits. I think.

    And I just love it when[edit]

    as happened today, [1] an editor corrects a spelling mistake that I made something like 5 years ago. It's a real feel good place.

    Works in progress[edit]

    Sort of always a work in progress and a good place for a wikibreak without have to leave wikipedia.

    I am back in a different mood. different mode. A different everything. i can't really explain why rhigh now because oof being watched. Did you ever get the feeling that everything that you did and said was being recoreded? I mean, by somene else?/ everything. Sure, you are probably thinking, this boy is off his rocker. Stark raving madd. More later

    This section was done while being filmed by a BBC film crew for some show they were doing. they wanted me typing, which is for me a slow, almost painful process. Fortunately they were not filming my monitor, just me. Here is a link to something related to that.
    and another.
    and yet another

    This is sort of a fun thing too.

    I do feel good about these[edit]

    I am, it turns out, not me at all but a sock puppet. For those of you, or both of you, or whomever reads this, the rational is clearly laid out here.

    Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Gamaliel (this charge lasted about 47 minutes or so). Darn!

    The proof is that after a month or so of my first editing I was making significant edits (gee, maybe that's why I started editing?) and then more than a dozen years later I reverted something that an editor did not want reverted and lo-and-behold, I must be a sock. Food for thought. Anyway, I suspect that when this all plays out I will deem it an honor to be on the other side of some fence from User:MrCharlesBlack. Any way, he sort of got his pecker smacked for filing a "Bogus Sockpuppet Investigation."

I might add that that the list in the Wrecking Crew article is a real work of sculpture! And, I'm glad to see someone's writing about WPA art from the 1930s. I should also note that your user page is a work of art too. I see that photo of your work station, decorated with those art books magnificently strewn about like a Jackson Pollack painting. And, then those pictures of your little doggies down at the bottom in various "poses" and "compositions." So, I thought I'd say thanks for everything! Garagepunk66 (talk) 02:44, 22 August 2016 (UTC)

    Since the local library is very small and there are not any nearby bigger ones, most of the sources and references that i use are from my own collection, the carpchives or the eeekchives (depending on my mood). I recently started cataloging my books on librarything and decided that I'd post a link here after I had 1,000 titles entered. .............. Sometime later, and still plodding along, I am now, I believe, over 2,000 titles and still entering. I also received a nice award at Library Thing (where this link goes) for uploading a bunch, maybe 500? of covers images. Anyway, here is my library. [5]. With many more, I believe, to follow.

    The lost Louis Sullivan stencil designs[edit]

    This could be clearer, so here is what I wrote about these pictures at Talk:Home Building Association Bank

    • While visiting the building in 1985 I discovered that the outside door leading to the upstairs was not locked, so I went in. I discovered a staircase that led to the second floor, which was being renovated. I included a not very interesting picture of the space in the gallery on the article page. However, more interesting, and, it turned out, disturbing, was a door that had been added halfway up the stairs. It too was unlocked, this was small town Ohio after all, and upon opening and entering through it I discovered myself on what was essentially a dropped ceiling, added when the building had been converted into an ice cream parlor some years previously. The space was being used for storage, but it also held all the refrigeration equipment that was needed downstairs. As I looked around, mostly up, I discovered that I was surrounded by the most astounding designs that I had ever seen. They were what remained of the stenciled patterns that Sullivan had produced here. I was to discover that these, along with those in the Chicago Stock Exchange and the bank in Owatonna were considered to be his best. They consisted of something like 60 different patterns overlaid on each other. However, to my everlasting horror, the paintings that I had discovered were peeling off the walls. Literally. pieces a foot or two long were hanging off the walls and ceilings. I was tempted to just pull some off, but did not. Unfortunately the pictures that I took did not come out very well, but I have included them here anyway. Carptrash 17:52, 24 December 2006 (UTC)

    I 'll find this in this link:

    “Whole Lotta Love” bears little resemblance to “You Need Love” as recorded in 1962 by Muddy Waters and owned by Willie Dixon (now by his estate). The track is, however, closely related to The Small Faces’ 1966 song “You Need Loving” (which is based on the same Muddy Waters track that was owned by Willie Dixon). Same story by the song Venus of Shocking Blue which stil gives Robbie van Leeuwen as composer, but it's a revision of "The Banjo Song by The Big 3. But that song has its orgins in the old song "Oh Sussana" written by Stephen Foster. See this wiki page:

    just discovered that s/he is in the top 5,000 wikipedians, but has no desire to pass the editor next up on the list because s/he believes that that editor is probably doing a great job.

    Another place to go every now and again. Wikipedia:List of Wikipedians by article count

    thanks! "clink!" --Lockley (talk) 02:13, 2 October 2012 (UTC)

    well, if you're coming over, I'll run down to the corner store and pick up some vodka and a couple of limes. Get ready to talk about Sacajawea and Eva Emery Dye and whatever you want to talk about. Hope your back's better! --Lockley (talk) 02:37, 2 October 2012 (UTC)
    Ohhhhh tempting, tempting. My back is better but still not up to (opinion) 943 miles (even more kilometers). Carptrash (talk) 02:48, 2 October 2012 (UTC)

    SFN question[edit]

    Yes, you do need proof to get into the category "Wikipedians who wear tiaras!"

    I usually don't use SFN for other than books and journal articles. See SS Clifton is an example where the citations are repeated. I just used the <ref name="Einar"/> to pick up the earlier reference <ref name="Einar"> I think Scallop]] does, however, use it for journal articles. so take a look. Gerda Arendt is a citation genius and would surely help. 7&6=thirteen () 20:51, 28 October 2017 (UTC)

    BTW, WP:SFN only works if there are four or fewer authors. You will note in the SS Clifton that I did find A neat way to link the page numbers in the sfn format. Takes some extra screwing around. 7&6=thirteen () 21:05, 28 October 2017 (UTC)
    Put another way, just use the address 300 times. Though perhaps I shall try GA. I get (am) very frustrated with formatting issues (currently have one wrapped around my neck and am slowly lifting my feet off the floor with it) and am looking for easy answers to problems that do not have easy answers. Burt thank you for trying. Carptrash (talk) 21:21, 28 October 2017 (UTC)
    I'd be happy to help, if you point me in the right direction. 22:03, 28 October 2017 (UTC) 7&6=thirteen () 20:34, 2 November 2017 (UTC)
