Always precious

Ten years ago, you were found precious. That's what you are, always. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 07:32, 26 January 2023 (UTC)

Has it really been 10 years? Gerda, thank you for your continued kindness. LEPRICAVARK (talk) 13:45, 26 January 2023 (UTC)

Request to look at edits

Hi Lepricavark, hope all is well!

I am an official representative of Akelius Residential Property AB and we would like to update the entries for Roger Akelius and Akelius Residential Property AB and enrich them with valuable information. We respect the rules of the Wikipedia community and have signed the official agency/Wikipedia agreement We adhere strictly to the guidelines and therefore leave it up to the members of the Wikipedia community to make or reject changes for us. I am reaching out to you in particular as I saw that you previously worked on Roger Akelius' page, hope that's OK! If you wouldn't mind, could you please review the content we have proposed om the two pages' talk pages?

Thank you in advance! Cfakjellberg (talk) 16:03, 17 March 2023 (UTC)

My involvement with that article consisted only of some minor work on the talk page. I'm afraid I can't help you any further as I know nothing about the topic. LEPRICAVARK (talk) 16:47, 17 March 2023 (UTC)

Hello, please rank the page of the Islamic Republic of Iran Police Intelligence Organizationand fix the "Talk" page, and correct the mistakes in the article, thank you. CaesarIran (talk) 14:41, 14 April 2023 (UTC)

I don't know what prompted you to send this message to me, but I'm afraid that article is beyond the normal scope of my editing. LEPRICAVARK (talk) 20:48, 14 April 2023 (UTC)
Since you created Nasser Kanaani's "Talk" page, I guessed that you can also help in the "Talk" page of this article. CaesarIran (talk) 22:28, 14 April 2023 (UTC)
I understand. I do sometimes create talk pages for biographical articles, but the page you are asking me about is outside the realm of my interests. Thank you for your understanding. LEPRICAVARK (talk) 23:17, 14 April 2023 (UTC)

Procedural notification

Hi, I and others have proposed additional options at Wikipedia:Village_pump_(policy)#RfC_on_a_procedural_community_desysop. You may wish to review your position in that RfC. TonyBallioni (talk) 02:30, 20 April 2023 (UTC)

'Dates to short description'

Please can you mark these edits as minor so I can filter out, as my watchlist is rather clogged with your edits... GiantSnowman 22:43, 23 April 2023 (UTC)

Of course. I'm not sure why I didn't have it set that way already. Please accept my apologies. LEPRICAVARK (talk) 01:25, 24 April 2023 (UTC)


I notice that you removed parameters from the banner shell and moved them to WikiProject Biography at Talk:Alan Gandell. Please don't do this. The parameters in the shell are a fairly new feature; see {{WikiProject banner shell}} for what is supported, and Wikipedia:Village_pump_(proposals)/Archive_198#Project-independent_quality_assessments for the discussion which led to this development. Each WikiProject within the banner shell inherits these parameters - rather similar to using DEFAULTSORT for categories in articles. By moving the parameters to a single project, you are causing other WikiProjects to lose the information. If you were to copy the parameters to every project, you end up with duplication making future maintenance more difficult.-gadfium 01:18, 13 May 2023 (UTC)

Thank you for the heads' up. I believe I was aware of that change at one point, but had apparently forgotten. However, I will note that Gandell was still showing up in the category for biography articles without a listas parameter, so perhaps something needs to be changed somewhere. LEPRICAVARK (talk) 01:40, 13 May 2023 (UTC)
I hadn't noticed the maintenance category! I did check that the listas was effective in the Biography categories. I've restored the listas for Alan Gandell and will apply it to WikiProject Biography in future.-gadfium 01:46, 13 May 2023 (UTC)
Great, thank you! LEPRICAVARK (talk) 02:45, 13 May 2023 (UTC)

Scottywong case opened

You recently offered a statement in a request for arbitration. The Arbitration Committee has accepted that request for arbitration and an arbitration case has been opened at Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case/Scottywong. Evidence that you wish the arbitrators to consider should be added to the evidence subpage, at Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case/Scottywong/Evidence. Please add your evidence by June 21, 2023, which is when the evidence phase closes. You can also contribute to the case workshop subpage, Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case/Scottywong/Workshop. For a guide to the arbitration process, see Wikipedia:Arbitration/Guide to arbitration. For the Arbitration Committee, –MJLTalk 19:22, 7 June 2023 (UTC)

If you have a problem with me

Please feel free to post to my talk page rather than edit a closed thread and then revert yourself using {{u}} which does not ping me in edit summaries anyway. I have no problem discussing my behavior or actions, but this kind of nonsense is not the way to go about it. Do you actually have something that you think merits discussion or some kind of outstanding issue with my behavior? If so, please let me know on this thread or post to my talk. ―Justin (koavf)TCM 01:18, 13 June 2023 (UTC)

I already tried discussing your actions with you. Several times, in fact. In response to my last post before the closure, you accused me of making stuff up before dismissing the rest of my post as nonsense, which I consider to be uncivil. As for the diff you linked, you can use it to see my response to your question from ANI. I do not think my post was cryptic, and I do not appreciate having my posts characterized as 'unhelpful noise'. That is also uncivil. I made a good faith effort to help mediate the situation, first by challenging Davey over his attack against you and later by mildly suggesting that you could have handled the situation differently. Davey responded graciously and acknowledged my point. You responded by quote-bombing policy and refusing to even consider anything I had to say. So yes, I have a problem with you. LEPRICAVARK (talk) 01:29, 13 June 2023 (UTC)
Thanks. So what would you like me to do differently? ―Justin (koavf)TCM 01:31, 13 June 2023 (UTC)
I guess the biggest thing I would say is to try to balance the letter of policy with whatever will lower the temperature in the moment. While it's true that Davey could have waited to reinstate the table until it had sources, I'd say there wasn't a pressing need to revert him again once he promised to add them. I think it would have been better to put the article on your watchlist and check back in a week or so. Again, I'm not saying that as an excuse for Davey's reaction, and I'm glad that he apologized for the personal attack. Although Davey can be harsh at times, he's a very genuine guy and he's usually good at self-reflecting honestly after the dust has settled. As for the heated stuff between us at ANI, I wonder if maybe you were unwilling to listen to mild criticism because you were too locked in on applying a strict interpretation of policy. Naturally, I got frustrated because I felt like you were only reading to try to find things I said that were wrong. And I'll admit that this response from me escalated the criticism from mild to harsh, and it was unlikely the conversation between us was ever going to get back on the rails after that. So that part is my fault. I tried to keep this concise, but I hope that's a helpful response, and I appreciate that you were willing to ask me for feedback. LEPRICAVARK (talk) 02:03, 13 June 2023 (UTC)
That is helpful. Thanks for being patient and providing it. Have a good one. ―Justin (koavf)TCM 02:15, 13 June 2023 (UTC)
I'm glad it was helpful. You have a good one as well. LEPRICAVARK (talk) 02:47, 13 June 2023 (UTC)

With all due respect!

Just an encouragement to disengage, though I certainly understand the frustration. Hope you're having a nice weekend otherwise. Dumuzid (talk) 01:13, 9 July 2023 (UTC)

Indeed, much appreciated. I temporarily forgot that nobody besides .Raven actually believes what he is writing. Yes, I am otherwise having a nice weekend. Hope you are as well. LEPRICAVARK (talk) 01:27, 9 July 2023 (UTC)
Yeah, there's little to gain from arguing, so might as well let the chips fall as they may. starship.paint (exalt) 02:01, 9 July 2023 (UTC)
Definitely agree that there's little to gain from continuing to belabor the point on there. In fact, I think we should all keep in mind that the longer and more tedious the discussion becomes, the more it becomes a real possibility that no admins ever take the time to close it. If this thread passes silently into the ANI archive, it might give the editor in question tacit permission to continue disrupting the project. So we would be wise to avoid the bait. Combefere Talk 17:56, 9 July 2023 (UTC)
@JoelleJay: - an invitation for you to take in the above discussion. Cheers. starship.paint (exalt) 07:50, 9 July 2023 (UTC)
Hi everyone, I have pop-ups enabled so saw this when I moused over Lepricavark's username, so will chime in with my agreement as well, including as it applies to my own participation in the thread. Thank you, Beccaynr (talk) 18:33, 9 July 2023 (UTC)

subconscious linguistics

A couple times a year I wake up from a nap with a WORD in my head, always in smallcaps; usually something full of fricatives and plosives. No other rhyme or reason to it I have figured. Today it was LEPRICAVARK... took me a minute to place it 😅 Out of curiosity, what's the etnymology?

Glad you are here, and hope you're having a fine weekend. – SJ + 20:20, 2 September 2023 (UTC)

Thank you for the kind words; I am having a fine weekend and I hope you are as well. My username is a rather strange one, although the definition may not be all that exciting. Lepricavark is a fusion of the names of several of my favorite automobiles: Le (Buick LeSabre), pri (Chevy Caprice), ca (Chevy Corsica), va (Oldsmobile Achieva), rk (Lincoln Mark VIII). Thank you for asking! LEPRICAVARK (talk) 20:57, 2 September 2023 (UTC)
