Santamoly topic ban[edit]

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made on the appropriate discussion page. No further edits should be made to this discussion.

Please forgive me for asking questions but after 14 years of good-faith editing I've never been banned before. So it's all new to me, and I'm not sure how to understand the procedures. The administration is using terms I've never heard before, nor do I understand. I'm not sure how to refine the "Topic Ban" so that I can keep editing in my specialty. The Sukhoi Su-25UB series was not an "East European" topic; it was produced in Ulan-Ude in Buryatia (East Russia,near Mongolia). It looks like the ban was "East Europe", but the article concerns an East Asian airplane. Thus, I should be able to edit Sukhoi engineering articles as long as I stay away from "East Europe" discussion. Am I correct?— Preceding unsigned comment added by Santamoly (talkcontribs) 03:49, 1 October 2018 (UTC)

Why are you asking me this question for the second time? I gave you my opinion last week. (See User talk:Toddy1/Archive 4#Topic ban: Santamoly)
The text of the topic ban is given at User talk:Santamoly#Notice that you are now subject to an arbitration enforcement sanction. It says: "You are indefinitely banned from editing anything relating to Eastern Europe, broadly interpreted". In my opinion that includes the Sukhoi Su-25; I think this because:
  1. All discussions of the topic ban seem to involve the Sukhoi Su-25. See Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Enforcement/Archive242.
  2. Where it was designed and manufactured are by some definitions part of Eastern Europe. For example, both Russia and Georgia are in the Council of Europe area, and all the CIS countries are in the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe area.
I am confused by your statement that you have been editing Wikipedia for 14 years. According to Special:Contributions/Santamoly, your first edit was on 29 December 2009 - 8 years and 9 months ago.-- Toddy1 (talk) 05:28, 1 October 2018 (UTC)
Please excuse my bumbling errors. I simply have no idea how to approach this Topic ban. The last edit I made to the Su-25 article was almost one year ago. I changed the engine type from "R-195" to "Soyuz/Tumansky R-195". The edit wasn't contested, and is still in place. It didn't connect to the WP source properly, and I'd still like to fix it. The next edit I was trying to make caused some differences of opinion, so I spent quite a bit of time searching for consensus on the Talk page. All in Good faith, and with respect, as anyone can see when viewing the page. Several editors agreed, and several disagreed. So I didn't make any edits to the article. Was I banned for joining the discussion on the Talk page? I always thought that's what the Talk Page was for. FWIW, neither the Su-25, nor East Europe is mentioned on the "Council of Europe " page or the other page. So the scope and reason for the ban is entirely confusing, especially since the airplane itself has nothing to do with "East Europe". As for the 14 years editing Wikipedia (always with Good Faith), I closed my old account when I retired and started a new account in my new home with a new computer. My old computer was taken over by my successor at my former position. Is any of this relevant to being Topic Banned? I'm not really an expert at this type of conflict, and would appreciate any help since it all appears to be one huge, confusing, 1984-type nightmare. Santamoly (talk) 03:26, 2 October 2018 (UTC)
Thanks.
Sometimes you get hurt in life. This happens on Wikipedia too. It happened to me, and now it has happened to you. You did things you should not have done, and it hurts that you have been sanctioned.
Like me, you are weak and helpless, so there is nothing you can do about it. So do not try. Just accept the sanction and get on with your life. Take a break; read some books; and if you feel like it, come back in a few months time and edit on topics nothing to do with Eastern Europe or Su-25.
If you cannot do that, then channel your unhappiness into writing a book about your bad experiences. Try to imagine how the other editors must have perceived you, and how they felt. Try and get the book published - a good working title would be infamy, infamy, they have all got it in for me.
If this answer does not satisfy you, well, you have tried User talk:RegentsPark, and my talk page, so try the following:

Could we possibly have a discussion here instead of in the edit history? --Zackmann (Talk to me/What I been doing) 09:01, 11 November 2018 (UTC)
Trying to actually have a constructive conversation here... There is obviously a misunderstanding. The TFD you linked to was not what I was referring to. If we could discuss that would be appreciated. --Zackmann (Talk to me/What I been doing) 09:04, 11 November 2018 (UTC)
