Note: At first, I will post few, if any links (because I can't copy/paste on the Wii Internet), but I will find the time to add some in later, if needed.

The last time I asked for User:Parsonsda to be temp-banned, people opposed based on the grounds of giving him time to improve and whatnot. However, recently, he has been far more brash and self-destructive, so much so that it's not just me who is finding it hard to apply RS:AGF.

One problem is that Parsonsda is a 'crat on another wiki, the "Kid VS Kat Wiki". While this may seem irrelevent to the community here, I assure you it has relevence to Parsons' behavior here. Here are the issues that rise from his pseudo-status on the KvK wiki:

  • A false sense of power. Parsons believes that because he adopted that wiki, then he "owns" that wiki. Several RSWikians have tried to offer their editing abilities to Parsons, but inconcievably, after much hard work, he asked Wikia for a mass rollback, effecively wasting the large amount of time that could have been spent editing on here instead. He has also told those certain editors from here to (paraphrased) "get off my wiki if you don't know anything about KvK!", even going so far as to BLOCK RSW editors like Stelercus for horribly-wrong reasons (Steler was told that his userpage was "not pro", and was effectively blocked for trying to help). Parsons has also mentioned in the Wiki CC that "he is an admin", which leads me and others to believe that he thinks he has "power" here on this wiki as well.
  • Plagerism. Parsons has copied, WORD-FOR-WORD, the RuneScape Wiki's list of policies (which he does not follow, anyway).

It's not much better on THIS wiki, either. Parsons has almost NEVER listened to instructions, and the introduction of his "projects" proves to me that he couldn't care less. He has:

  • Gone ahead with a project that violates Jagex copyright, advertising it on his userpage, and blindly assuming that people like/want it.
  • Requested a namespace, of all things, EXCLUSIVELY for his so-called "library" (which I personally believe is selfish and vain).
  • Violated RS:DDD at least once and RS:UTP quite a few times when I was trying to help him understand what he was doing wrong.
  • Continuously making worthless "projects" on the Yew Grove.

Not only that, but Parsonsda has shown a failure to comprehend the gravity of some of his actions. For example, in order to provide "offical proof" for his project, he has faked an image by Andrew. This is obviously not Andrew, and it is not found anywhere on the forums. The sheer lack of reason is astonishing. Faking an image on a subject with widespread real-life implications is, quite simply, unacceptable on this wiki. Parsonsda demonstrates a clear lack of understanding of ethics with that picture.

In short, Parsonsda is a disruptive, power-hungry user who simply wants fame, recognition, and status on multiple wikis. I am disgusted with his devil-may-care attitude and treatment/ignorance of those who TRY to help him.

I propose that we give Parsonsda a minimum of a one month ban and delete his copyvio'd "library", since it was not to be created in the first place. Please note that I have TRIED to assume good faith, but as of now, it is near-impossible to do so. 7kyt1iT.gif --WINE OF GOOD HEALTH (Actually Stinko) 20:07, February 19, 2010 (UTC)

Extreme support - It seems that Parsons has become more and more arrogant ever since he created his wiki. I fully agree with Stinkowing. ----LiquidTalk 20:38, February 19, 2010 (UTC)

May I also point out this to any person who reads this topic:

http://img519.imageshack.us/img519/245/parsonsda2.png

This tells me that he (Parsons) is willing to vandalize wikis that he views as problematic. We do NOT need that attitude in any way, shape, or form here. 7kyt1iT.gif --WINE OF GOOD HEALTH (Actually Stinko) 21:21, February 19, 2010 (UTC)
Hmm... I think I'll change my vote from a support to a strong support. ----LiquidTalk 21:23, February 19, 2010 (UTC)
Eh, since the opposition has taken "Extreme oppose" stances, I guess I'll up my support level too. However, I will change my vote to neutral or oppose if I read a good argument to the contrary. ----LiquidTalk 22:39, February 19, 2010 (UTC)

Support - He grows more arrogant and power-hungry, and refuses to accept anybody's suggestions or comments. See here for evidence of his vandalism. That put it over the top for me. I'm a regular user and I approve this message.  TLUL Talk - Contribs 21:34, February 19, 2010 (UTC) 

At least he is trying to do something positive, but I still feel that his refusal to listen to advice is an issue. Neutral for now. I'm a regular user and I approve this message.  TLUL Talk - Contribs 22:40, February 19, 2010 (UTC)

Strong Support - Parsons refuses to listen to reason and seems to have no understanding of AEAE. Per Stinko, Tien and Liquidhelium. ~ Fire Surge icon.png Sentry Telos Talk  21:55, February 19, 2010 (UTC)

Erm... could you tell me what AEAE is? I don't recognize it. =X ----LiquidTalk 22:06, February 19, 2010 (UTC)
See RS:AEAE Air rune.png Tollerach hates SoF Fire rune.png 22:08, February 19, 2010 (UTC)

Question - I get that he's done some things on other wikis that are troublesome. But can you get specific examples of disruption that he has caused on this wiki? I'm not opposed to this, I'd just like to see some RSW examples.

On a side note, copying our policies for another wiki is kinda in the spirit of wikis. I think we got most of our policies from Wikipedia, and our content is free to use and modify per the GPL type stuff. Cheers, Air rune.png Tollerach hates SoF Fire rune.png 22:08, February 19, 2010 (UTC)

Extreme oppose - Parsonsda only tries to do things that are best for the wiki. These reasons cértainly aren't good enough to bad a user who's only trying the best for the wiki. There might have been some misunderstandings at kidvskat, but he apologised for that. However, we must first clearly point him whát he's doing wrong, and I'm 100% sure Parsonsda will do his best! Mark (Talk) • (Contribs) 22:04, February 19, 2010 (UTC)

Tedjuh, see Stinko's long paragraphs above. We have already tried to help him improve on multiple occasions. If you look in his talk page/archives (assuming they're not deleted), I'm sure you'll find ample proof of what I'm talking about. Enough is enough. ----LiquidTalk 22:09, February 19, 2010 (UTC)
I'm aware of that, but the boy is just trying his best to help. He doesn't really realise what he is doing. For example, if we compare the good things with the bad things, it's not even thát bad! And even... A MONTH?! Mark (Talk) • (Contribs) 22:15, February 19, 2010 (UTC)
Well... you may be right about the duration of the ban. One month does seem to be a bit excessive. If this were the first couple times that this problem has occured, then I wouldn't support the ban. However, like Stinko said, it's extremely difficult to assume good faith now, after so many recurring incidents. One incident just leads into the next. ----LiquidTalk 22:20, February 19, 2010 (UTC)
(edit conflict with TedJuh, Liquid, Scoot below) I agree, a 1 month ban is rather extreme. I don't think that the Dark RuneScape Wiki should have much bearing on his status here, but vandalism? I don't like that on any wiki. Although I certainly wouldn't propose banning him because of one mistake like that, there have been too many other incidents in my opinion. A shorter block may be in order. I'm a regular user and I approve this message.  TLUL Talk - Contribs 22:29, February 19, 2010 (UTC) 

Support - Per Stinko and I left the KvK wiki because of that commenting on "UnRuneScape wiki allover again" Twig Talk 772kZGs.png 22:06, February 19, 2010 (UTC)

Strong Oppose ban for 1 month See bellow - We shouldn't ban someone for what they did on a different wiki. It does show bad judgement but hey, he wont get sysop. Yes he did take our policies and we can ask him to remove it and if he doesn't then get wikia staff will do it. I don't think he intentionally does it to get people mad, he just is either an attention hugger or (for lack of a better word) slow. He thinks that his projects will help and I think that he thinks that he is always correct. I think someone should try to actually talk with him 1 on 1 and see what he has to say. Depending on what he says I think he should just get a 2 week ban to show him we are serious (again, depends on what he says). scoot4.pngscooties 22:08, February 19, 2010 (UTC)

Scratch that, he doesn't deserve to be banned for trying to help! scoot4.pngscooties 22:17, February 19, 2010 (UTC)

Question - If it turns out that he will be banned, does that automatically mean a similar ban from the Clan Chat also? ----LiquidTalk 22:10, February 19, 2010 (UTC)

(Edit conflict with Twigy) I'm sure that if we asked Stinko, he could name many violations of RS:CR. I can too. That's not just a violation of wiki rules, it's also a violation of real life law. ----LiquidTalk 22:22, February 19, 2010 (UTC)
Is Parsons allowed to oppose this? Isn't him opposing kind of like supporting your own Rfa? ~ Fire Surge icon.png Sentry Telos Talk  01:57, February 20, 2010 (UTC)
I think you're right. I have changed it to a comment. If, in fact, he is allowed to oppose, then please change it back. ----LiquidTalk 02:01, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose After i saw an impassioned speech on rs wiki chat I have to oppose any sort of block.--Obama Luigi 22:24, February 19, 2010 (UTC)

Massive Support-We've warned him enough times, we've helped him enough times, he's spat in our faces enough times, I say it's time we punish him. Ok, once again, yes I know he's just trying to help, yes I know he's doing this all in good faith, but there comes a time when you gotta just say "We don't need your help", because honestly, we don't. While I must admit he's a FEW good ideas in the past, the pros don't outweigh the odds. Also, some time ago in the wiki,(as staed above) he said "Anyone else wana vanadalise the dark runescape wiki?". A few minutes later after no reply (except for me saying "isn't that against the rules?") he stated "I'll just do it myself". Later he said "just blanked their homepage". Now, lets take a look at this shall we? He's 'encouraging vandalism and giving the wik a bad name. Once again, I know he's just trying to help, but it simply is doing more harm than good. If you need any more reasons, lets not forget his "mod cousin" and the whole Runescape model viewer drama a while back. With all this being said, I suggest a temporary ban from the wiki OR atleast a ban from the wiki clan chat, if nothing else. And if this does not work and he STILL is a...JERK after that, then we might have to, well, permaban him. I think it really is a shame that one of the most enthusiastic editors has to be an arrogant..being like Parsonsda.

Comment - He did end up on alot of people's ignore lists, though i'm not sure why. ♦Dragon platebody.pngCeno FlameTalk Contribs # SignDragon chainbody.png 22:28, February 19, 2010 (UTC)♦

Oppose Support, see below - Although at times he may seem like he is being abusive, I feel he is doing it in full faith. Him copying the policies from here over to there is allowed, but under circumstances. Just as long as he gives attribution to the original authors, perhaps by linking to the history over here, and that he allows it under the same license. But, off-site works and issues shouldn't affect status here.
As for his projects, he just wants to help out. He can create them, as long as they do not violate copyrights and the wiki policies. Posting about them on the Yew Grove isn't the best place for it. He just needs to be told what the Yew Grove is for, discussion about improving the over-all wiki, not for personal forum posts. We do have forums for those announcements if wanted.
On to the topic of the library, he may not understand what copyright is all about. People have been telling him that it is violating copyright, but no one really explains what copyright is and where it is violating it. The text belongs to Jagex, and by posting it word for word is violating the copyright. Jagex had the copyright placed to prevent people from going out and copying the text, and placing it all over the internet.
I don't really see how a block can do to help him, but he needs a good talk with someone that can explain the things he needs to do, and not to do. ~MuzTalk 22:29, February 19, 2010 (UTC)

Comment Support short ban - I personally just think Parsonsda is... trying too hard. I know he's trying to help, but the abnormal rate at which he proposes projects annoys many users. Most of them are unnecessary, but like Stinko said, he assumes that users will love them and continues to work on them. Parsonsdas has shown that he doesn't listen to advice and is occasionally rude to those to try to help him. Also, I really don't get why he felt the need to blank a wiki's main page. On the other hand, I don't think he is ill-intentioned... to put it bluntly, he simply needs to learn to think before he acts. For now, I'm neutral. Unfortunately, after seeing his fake image, I'm forced to support a short ban.  Tien  22:38, February 19, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - This is true... He doesnt want to harm anybody, hes just trying his best for the wiki. Mark (Talk) • (Contribs) 22:46, February 19, 2010 (UTC)
I agree highly with that. He reminds me of another user... But I haven't much against him except that he needs to tone it down a bit. --

Comment - Fair use is generally considered about 20% of the original document. Since copying the book in its entirety is obviously more than 20%, it does not count as fair use. ----LiquidTalk 23:00, February 19, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - Guess we're gonna have to delete the update namespace then. Mark (Talk) • (Contribs) 23:01, February 19, 2010 (UTC)
The Update namespace is fine, because it explicitly states that the text is taken from Jagex and quotes it. ----LiquidTalk 23:02, February 19, 2010 (UTC)
Well, then we could have added that to Parsons library, everybody happy. Also, Jagex has given approval to copy their text and images for informational purposes. Mark (Talk) • (Contribs) 23:06, February 19, 2010 (UTC)
Did Parsons add that to his "library"? NO! ----LiquidTalk 23:16, February 19, 2010 (UTC)
The thing is, he may not know about copyright laws and such. Therefore, he wouldn't have known about Fair Use. Someone should have told him about the small footnote needed. ~MuzTalk 23:22, February 19, 2010 (UTC)
Just because a quotation was properly attributed does not mean a substantial portion of copyrighted text can be quoted under fair use. See wikipedia:Wikipedia:QUOTES#Quotations_and_fair_use. --Quarenon  Talk 23:27, February 19, 2010 (UTC)
Comment - Read this. Ryan PM 23:37, February 19, 2010 (UTC)
That is definitely NOT posted by Andrew himself. It is obvious that Parsons faked the image. ----LiquidTalk 23:48, February 19, 2010 (UTC)

STRONG oppose - Per all opposes. Parsonsda just wants to help. You guys have to assume good faith instead of treating him like garbage. FredeTalk 23:13, February 19, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - For crying out loud, assume good faith. Has he vandalized pages? Has he done intentional bad faith edits? If yes, then block him. If no, then there is no basis for a block. Ajraddatz Talk 23:26, February 19, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - As Blue was kind enough to point out, this image was obviously faked by Parsons. It has all the spelling mistakes that Parsons has, as well as several grammatical errors. The book is referred to as "Betray at Falador". I'd think Andrew would know the title is really "Betrayal at Falador". This is a blatant lack of integrity that is completely unacceptable on the Wiki. And, this isn't the only incident. Any CC regular will be able to tell you about Parsons's "stories" that he tells in the CC. They usually have to deal with wild speculation (I use that term lightly, a more appropriate one would be lies) or his "Phantom cousin". This is NOT something that we want on the Wiki. ----LiquidTalk 23:54, February 19, 2010 (UTC)

Comment/additon to earlier statement-Ok, that image that Bluesonic posted HAS to be violating one of the rules. And yes I know I must assume good faith, and yes, they've been in good faith, but he's been nothing but a nuisance. I mean, what else can we do? Warnings didn't work, advice didn't work, hell, we even had big "sit downs" and explicitly stated the rules to him and told him to stop, and even those didn't work. Bottom line, we tried everything else, nothing worked, so it's time to step it up a notch and start issuing the bans. And I've noticed that his "supporters" (Fruit Smoothie, Tedjuh, maybe Frede at times), have gone to great lengths to justify his actions, and they've all been a little...obssessive with Parsons. I think they might just be close friends with who just dont dont want him banned rather than wanting to help the wiki.Dragon 2h sword old.png Vex 327 Dragon full helm.png 00:01, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - Per Frede and others, He's a good guy and he has tons of talent, Let's give him something to do? I haven't seen anything bad come from him that affects this wiki. Floppyc5

See the faked image? It is extremely embarrasing to the Wiki that one of our users has FAKED an image that shows Andrew commenting on a legal issue with farspread real-life issues. And you call that nothing bad that affects the wiki? ----LiquidTalk 00:06, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - No, just no. He's only trying to help. Fishing.png NnK Oliver (600613) talk 00:11, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

Edit on bottom. Fishing.png NnK Oliver (600613) talk 03:55, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - Regarding the image, I only remember it because when someone in the CC asked if he had permission from Jagex to do this. He responded with an answer along the lines of "They gave me permission." Another asked Par to prove it. Par remarked "I'll show you." A few minutes later he uploaded to Photobucket and told us "Done." Moments later User:Iiii I I I undid the revision. Other instances I am aware of his deceit in his mis(dis)information is with his use of the scapegoat: Mod Trick. Ryan PM 00:16, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - I suggest that everyone consider his actions (such as deception and vandalism) and not just the fact that he's trying to help.  Tien  00:19, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

Support As much as I hate to support a ban on someone who may be basically trying to help, that image of dialogue attributed to Andrew Gower is clearly written by someone whose first language is not English. We can debate the merits of any proposal (including Parsonsda's library), but actually faking evidence on a serious matter (legality in addition to wiki policy) is serious misconduct, and must not be tolerated from anyone. I would like to see Parsonsda grow up somewhat by the time his ban is up. Leevclarke talk Max_logo_mini.png bulldog_puppy.png 00:32, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

Support - I was opposing earlier on, but that picture is now making me go away from opposing. Modifying a post to make it a complete meaning is one thing, but doing it on an important legal matter as Copyright Infringement is horrible. I support a block, though unsure of a specific time length. ~MuzTalk 00:38, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

Changed to support - The reason we can tell that he is lying is if you search up his posts on the ROF the only Q&A question he asked was this. I changed to support because falsifying a post by a mod about copyright and stuff is just horrible. scoot4.pngscooties 00:47, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

Slight oppose - He is only trying to help. Although I'm getting sick of tired of his "big projects" that are usually derogatory to the wiki, we need to assume good faith. He probably put a lot of thought into those projects, and only wanted to help the wiki. All of those suggestions were good ideas, but there were only problems with things such as copyright and the works. I think you guys have been patient with him, and I expected this much sooner. But I was going to oppose either way. Chicken7 >talk 00:54, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

I think the picture says more than enough. Besides, there is an extent to AGF. After one passes that threshold, it's not really in good faith anymore. Can you come up with a good faith that would compel Parsons to fake such an image? I can't. ----LiquidTalk 01:18, February 20, 2010 (UTC)
One image allows a 30 day ban? Because that is one of the only contributions that is ruthless rule-breaking. Chicken7 >talk 01:26, February 20, 2010 (UTC)
It is not simply that one single image. Have you not seen his vulgar attitude towards several users? I've looked at Stinko's talk page, and it's not pretty. But besides, that image is a serious breach of etiquette. How can you justify FAKING an image by Runescape's founder that has widespread real-world implications? ----LiquidTalk 01:30, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

Proposal - Should this User block fail to pass, I propose that we at least establish a set standard for Parsons's future behavior, like putting him on probation. I'd say that should he be vulgar and duplicitous again in the two weeks immediately following the closure of this thread (if and only if it fails to pass), Parsons should be given one warning. After that one warning, he should be blocked. We are so lenient it is not even funny. ----LiquidTalk 03:28, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

My thoughts exactly. I was in disbelief that no one had taken any action before this. 7kyt1iT.gif --WINE OF GOOD HEALTH (Actually Stinko) 03:38, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

Support one week block Now I fully sympathize with those who find Parsons annoying, aggravating, irritating, and obnoxious. And how he is a "jerk" on the wiki he made where he lords his power over others. But NONE of that is relevant to this discussion, and should not even be the topic or mentioned. I wanted to strongly oppose this block, as it seems a personal vendetta more than anything else, and that disgusts me. But from all the hype and nonsense one fact does emerge. What stands out is he was told in Forum:My_Project_Help not to make the library, and that it would violate copyright laws. His being informed of this is quite clear, and I recall it being stressed to him several times in the CC. Not only did he make it, he then faked a picture of Andrew Gower saying it was allowed. I see only these two things as being relevant to this talk. In matters where we may be violating the law we seek out what is allowed and proceed accordingly.--Degenret01 03:45, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

There it looks like he was told to work on it in his subpage witch he did. I dont think that they came to the conclusion to tell him to stop working on it though just that it wasnt going to become an actual project. Dragon helm.png Team6and7 Talk Dragon boots.png 04:05, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

Changed back to Support, above - I have stood back, taken a good look at the situation, and I still feel that Parsons should at the very least be put on probation. My reasons include:

  • Being offensive and vulgar to users, both on and off this wiki, and in the cc - Stinko's talk page, as linked above, is a good concrete example
  • Vandalising another wiki - I don't think that you would particularly want me around if I went and wiped out a Wikipedia page or two. The main reason for this is that it demonstrates a remarkable lack of good judgement.
  • Inability to listen to others simply trying to help
  • Power hungry - Yeah, this was on another wiki, but it still is evident here.
  • Lying/falsifying information - I think we have all heard Parson's tall tales (or seen his photoshopped pictures). Normally, I wouldn't consider this as evidence against him, simply a lack of character, but when he goes so far as to construct a fake image of Andrew essentially giving him legal permission to do something, that can have very serious real-world consequences.

This, in my opinion, justifies and necessitates us taking some action. I'm a regular user and I approve this message.  TLUL Talk - Contribs 04:45, February 20, 2010 (UTC) 

If Stink called you an "...attention whore...trying to be famous" [1] how would you feel? The crap between Parsons and Stink have reached a personal level and should not be considered here. They are both wrong but that isn't what this forum is about.--Degenret01 06:27, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose one-month block - Per Degen. We don't block people for doing stupid things, and that's simply what I see most of the examples in the beginning as. Those aside, all we really have left is the faked image, which I really don't think warrants a block that lasts a month simply on its own. Was he trying to do harm? I doubt it.

Support - As my comment on Parsonsda's talk page is to prove, I have, and sure many others have, been treated like we are inferior, that is not acceptable by any standards. RS:AGF has been used to defend him in times before, but he obviously hasn't learnt from his mistakes, and has persisted with the behaviour that he was warned not to use. Ruud (talk)(Suggest me naems) 11:06, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - He is just trying to help. Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 11:19, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - I don't think he's even allowed to be banned according to RS:BLOCK:

  • A false sense of power.
So, you block a user just because he THINKS he has rights? Well, I've seen some worse then a person wishing to be a sysop, and sometimes saying he wants some rights. He has néver said he was a sysop.
  • Plagerism.
As far as I know you don't get blocked for this. What he did was partially Fair use, and he was NOT aware of the fact that it was copyright violation. Furthermore, this is not for the wiki to just handle. Jagex has given approval to copy their texts, and so Parsonsda was not doing anything wrong. Also, say goodbye to the update namespace if you don't like this.
  • Gone ahead with a project that violates Jagex copyright, advertising it on his userpage, and blindly assuming that people like/want it.
Soo, just because he wants the best for the wiki with a project, you're gonna have him blocked?
  1. You are allowed to advertise it on your userpage
  2. He thinks people would like it, he just wants some people to notice it. This is NOT a good argument.
  3. Jagex has given approval + See above
  • Requested a namespace, of all things, EXCLUSIVELY for his so-called "library" (which I personally believe is selfish and vain).
Soo, you're gonna ban him for wanting a namespace? Again, not according to RS:BLOCK
  • Violated RS:DDD at least once and RS:UTP quite a few times when I was trying to help him understand what he was doing wrong.
He did delete about three discussions, but all of these were placed back and he apologised for this. This is certainly not block-worthy enough...
He has NEVER personally offended or cursed at somebody. He might have said he annoyed himself about him, but NO serious offences. Again, not block-worthy AND he has apologised.
  • Continuously making worthless "projects" on the Yew Grove.
RS:BLOCK

So, for gods sake, he just wants the best for the wiki. I think you have some personal reasons involved in this. If you dont like his projects, ignore them. If you don't like him, ignore him, but for gods sake, dont BLOCK him?! I mean, what the hell? Everybody once had to begin like this: they asked people for help, they tried to get better on the wiki, they tried to get people to notice him. Parsonsda just needs to get used to the rules, and THIS DOES NOT HELP! And, according to the points I just given, he isn't even allowed to be blocked... Maybe this should be closed. Mark (Talk) • (Contribs) 13:13, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

So explain the infamous picture! I'm sure you've seen it already! I've linked to it multiple times! ----LiquidTalk 13:15, February 20, 2010 (UTC)
The picture. He might have changed that one so you thought he was allowed to do the project, which was he allowed to do so anyway. Furthermore, you're NOT allowed to block anybody for lying, as you said yourself, and no policy exists for that (yet). Even if that policy comes to existance, it doesn't apply here, only at later cases. Mark (Talk) • (Contribs) 13:17, February 20, 2010 (UTC)
I don't want Parsons banned, but I have a reply to that. He made that image for the purpose of deceiving us and making us accept his "library" because Andrew Gowar allowed it. If we did that, we would be facing major copyright issues and complaints from Jagex. This place could've even got shut down. Chicken7 >talk 13:21, February 20, 2010 (UTC)
(edit conflict with Chicken) There is no policy against it, but I think that most users agree with me (judging by the vast number of support votes after I posted about the picture) that faking an image from Andrew Gower on an issue of widespread real-life importance is completely unacceptable. ----LiquidTalk 13:22, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

It needs the request to use copyright material, but in this case, Parsonda did not have permission to use copyrighted material and he edited the image instead, claiming Andrew gave him the permission. Fishing.png NnK Oliver (600613) talk 21:18, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

Slight Support - If I'm honest, you've got to admit that Parsonsda goes on alot, and the vandalism is REALLY not good. This would be an oppose, but he's just trying to help (maybe too hard) and wants what's best for the Wiki. However, he is arrogant and refuses to listen to advice, and has been even worse since he took over that other Wiki. Perhaps just a short ban? SplâshTâlkSîgn hêrê 19:07, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - RS:AGF clearly states (as the last sentence) that constant lying is inconsistent with good faithl. It's extremely difficult to find excuses for Parsons's lying behavior when it is clearly defined not to be in good faith. ----LiquidTalk 19:10, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

Extreme oppose- its quite apparent that you guys are just banning him because you don't like him*Mookie lucid*

Strong Oppose - Per Swiz and Oli, he can't help it, and he usually tries to help the wiki. (I know that he lies a lot, but I dont think that's a good enough reason for blocking someone.) bad_fetustalk 19:18, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

The deceitful picture that he faked is the main reason. We really can't apply RS:AGF anymore, since the policy page defines constant lying to be in violation of AGF. ----LiquidTalk 19:20, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

you can't prove that he doesnt have it either. I choose to believe him. I honestly dont think that he is lying about it, for such weird reactions, he must have a disability. bad_fetustalk 19:34, February 20, 2010 (UTC)
I'm not sure that he actually does have it. He's lied so much now that he's almost become the Boy who Cried Wolf. I don't know what to believe and what not to believe. ----LiquidTalk 19:36, February 20, 2010 (UTC)
I can see what you mean, I saw him lying multiple times too, but as I stated before, someone MUST have a disability to act such weirdly. bad_fetustalk 19:44, February 20, 2010 (UTC)
We have to believe what he tells us.  Swiz Talk to me 19:46, February 20, 2010 (UTC)
(Edit conflict) If you look in the American Psychiatric Association's guidebook, you'll find may "disorders" that normal people wouldn't even consider to be abnormal. So if that's what you mean by disability, then yes. Otherwise, Parsons may be telling the truth. If not, he could just crave dulpicity or something like that. ----LiquidTalk 19:48, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

and since when does faking an image causes 1 month ban? bad_fetustalk 19:53, February 20, 2010 (UTC)
He faked a forum post by Andrew that gives him Copyright permission to use Runescape book content for his library. It could have gotten the wiki shut down. This, and the cumulation of Parsons's other behaviors, leads me to believe that we need to take a stand and send a clear message that this kind of behavior is unacceptable. ----LiquidTalk 19:56, February 20, 2010 (UTC)
Not really, the library would be removed and nothing would happen to the wiki. bad_fetustalk 20:04, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - Just my two hundredths of a dollar: I think that Parsons is actually sort of being mature, in that he hasn't lashed out at anyone badly. With all this bashing, it's surprising that he hasn't lost his temper. Most people would lash out. Just my two cents. Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 19:53, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

I really doubt that he can't help it. I think he can, but chooses to do it anyways. We've given him plenty of warnings before, so he is well aware of the consequences. ----LiquidTalk 20:16, February 20, 2010 (UTC)
So you are saying that being aware of the consequences should neglect the effects of his disability? That's just ridiculous. bad_fetustalk 20:24, February 20, 2010 (UTC)
I never said that. I'm saying that it's not possible to prove he has a disability. I realize that I can't prove he doesn't, but you can't use a disability as evidence here. ----LiquidTalk 20:26, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

Support - Claiming to have a disease that makes you lie is... as low as anyone can get. If absolute lack of any hint at morality was not enough, the Wiki can only be harmed by editos who are prone to spreading false information and rumours. Finally, anyone claiming to have J-Mods are breaking RS Rules and therefore have no place within the Wiki. His continuous ignorance when it comes to rules, both ours and Jagex's, as well as utter inability to listen to anyone but himself, completed by his only motication being attention grabbing, this user should be banned, and not as a warning since a warning would not work on someone prone to ignoring others' actions and opinions.

Oppose - First of all, be familiar with User talk:Ruudvan10000#Work on "your" wiki and understand that of anyone here, I have easily had the most trouble with parsons in the past. I was trying to not have an opinion on the matter, but from Tedjuh's comments in the cc, I can no longer remain silent. I do not believe that Parsons is a bad person, nor should he be blocked, because he has simply misguided himself and made repeated mistakes, something I know all of us are responsible for, be it on this wiki or in real life. While some of his actions can be annoying, and somewhat disruptive, they are not in bad faith and do not seek to harm anyone. He only wants to help, nothing more. The clear solution here is to keep a close eye on him and direct him when needed. If required, we can use RS:IAR to bypass RS:DDD and instantly delete any of the "useless" threads that he creates until he learns from the mistakes. There is more I could say, but I am going to stop for now because this is already quite long. Anything else will be expressed through comments.

Comment - I have now heard arguments from many opposers on why Parsons may have faked the image. Let me put it this way: It doesn't matter what his motive was. The important part is that he made a serious mistake that could have had far more dire consequences. Thus, we need to hand him an appropriate punishment to stress the gravity of the situation. The maximum block time that is under consideration is one month. The actualy block time (if he is blocked) will most likely be shorter. This is a way to send a clear message that the kind of behavior he was exhibiting is unacceptable.

In real life, if I stole something because I didn't know theft was illegal, am I absolved of all responsiblity? No, I am not. I would be arrested just the same. Therefore, this case should be no different. We should hand a light punishment to stress our case, and give him a chance after the block expires to continue to improve the wiki. ----LiquidTalk 21:09, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

You're using murder as a metaphor for faking a picture? Swiz Talk Review Me 21:13, February 20, 2010 (UTC)
Yes. My point is that not knowing something is wrong is not an excuse to escape punishment. We should give Parsons a light punishment for that to make a clear statement that it is unacceptable. ----LiquidTalk 21:15, February 20, 2010 (UTC)
Murder is hugely different from faking/lying about something Swiz Talk Review Me 21:20, February 20, 2010 (UTC)
Ok, fine. I'll change it to stealing then. That is really what Parsons was trying to do (he was trying to take Jagex's intellectual property), so this would provide a better metaphor. ----LiquidTalk 21:22, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

Taken from Wikipedia entry on ADHD:

ADHD and other medical conditions

ADHD may accompany other disorders such as anxiety or depression. Such combinations can greatly complicate diagnosis and treatment. Academic studies and research in private practice suggest that depression in ADHD appears to be increasingly prevalent in children as they get older, with a higher rate of increase in girls than in boys, and to vary in prevalence with the subtype of ADHD. Where a mood disorder complicates ADHD it would be prudent to treat the mood disorder first, but parents of children who have ADHD often wish to have the ADHD treated first, because the response to treatment is quicker.[1]

Inattention and "hyperactive" behavior are not the only problems in children with ADHD. ADHD exists alone in only about 1/3 of the children diagnosed with it. Many co-existing conditions require other courses of treatment and should be diagnosed separately instead of being grouped in the ADHD diagnosis. Some of the associated conditions are:

  1. ^ Brunsvold GL, Oepen G (2008). "Comorbid Depression in ADHD: Children and Adolescents". Psychiatric Times 25 (10).
  2. ^ Evaluation and diagnosis of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder in children (Subscription required). Uptodate (December 5, 2007). Retrieved on 2008-09-12.

He has frequently used him for the following: allowing Parsonsda to become Nomad for his avatar and body picture on his userpage (he didn't think I would know it was Mod Rathe's pictures when I told him he lied and responded with "Who?"); using him as his cousin at one point (although I never take pictures of the cc.), and another occurrence when he persisted that the new skill would come out on "15/2/10 mod trick told me", and the only other reason I find him bait is because at one point he threatened (and did) kick people that followed him when he left the cc to another Clan Chat.

However, it should be made very clear to Parsons that he shouldn't lie like that again, ESPECIALLY not with stuff like that picture. ~ Fire Surge icon.png Sentry Telos Talk  20:18, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

Changed again, see below ~ Fire Surge icon.png Sentry Telos Talk  06:05, February 21, 2010 (UTC)

Neutral-leaning towards short term block - He apologized, and he knows he is wrong. Maybe put him on probation for the time being. I think this whole discussion is a big wake up call to him and I'm fairly certain he will try to stop. And at the above list of opposers, we get consensus not count votes. So empty votes with no reasons doesn't help. scoot4.pngscooties 20:37, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

You are taking the content, in its entirety, found in Runescape's books and adding them to your library, without any attribution to the original source. This is a clear copyright violation. Runescape and all of its contents is copyrighted by Jagex. ----LiquidTalk 20:48, February 20, 2010 (UTC)
Comment - You fostered it with your fallacy from Andrew Gower. That is your own fault and should have known that something like this would occur. As well it's a User project, not a Wiki project as it is in your userpage. Ryan PM 20:50, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

So, have you ever seen Jagex closing down a fansite for copyright vio? NEVER. Mark (Talk) • (Contribs) 21:51, February 20, 2010 (UTC)
I was just pointing that out. Fansites do credit Jagex for everything anyway.  Tien  21:59, February 20, 2010 (UTC)
Actually, wasn't the UnRunescape Wiki shut down for violating copyright laws?  Tien  22:02, February 20, 2010 (UTC)
I think that UnRuneScape and UnFunOrb were shut down for very offensive libel against various J Mods. I may be wrong though, but that was the most negative thing I saw about it.
The fact that Jagex has previously given permission to use their materials is completely irrelevant. The issue is Parsonsda creating a fake image of somebody giving him legal permission to do something. I think he has most likely learned from his mistake, but I would like to point out that that was the issue. I'm still waiting for him to explain that one, though. I'm a regular user and I approve this message.  TLUL Talk - Contribs 23:40, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

We are in the process of deciding if what he did constitutes a block. If you aren't going to provide constructive comments then please stay out of this thread. scoot4.pngscooties 21:45, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - I found this. scoot4.pngscooties 21:45, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose, but this is his only warning Neutral, see below - If he does anything else like all this, we can ban him as long as you want. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 21:49, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

If this is the case, then I hope the next time we wouldn't need to make a YG thread and go through days of heated debate to reach the conclusion. ----LiquidTalk 21:52, February 20, 2010 (UTC)
Me neither. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 21:58, February 20, 2010 (UTC)
If this is the consensus, it must be clearly written in the resolution that Parsons will be blocked if he violates the policies of this magnitude. That way, there will be no ambiguity about it. ----LiquidTalk 22:01, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - To prevent future problems like this, I think Parsonsda needs to try to change his style of editing. Perhaps he does have ADHD. But like Stelercus mentioned, it is completely possible to control it. It's been made clear here that although he may have a disorder, the actions that result from it are still unacceptable. For his benefit and our benefit, I urge him to reconsider his activity on this wiki. Is it worth it to continuously propose projects for attention, some of which could have resulted in serious consequences? Is it worth it to practice deception just to have things your way? He might be better off working with templates or something, since he seems to have some knowledge of coding, or taking screenshots because he loves to work with images. I'm not forcing him to do anything, but he definitely needs to learn from this and improve.  Tien  21:59, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

Extreme Support - Parsons is one of the rudest people I've yet met in over 2 years playing Runescape. He has told me (with rude language included) to shut up and stop making fun of him, when we were just pointing out that he was being ingrateful and extremely selfish in requesting a mass rollback on the KvK wiki which we spent so long editing. (How does one get 500 pages of unused images. REALLY?) He has been rude and disruptive too many times. I feel that no punishments we can give to him are too severe.--Cheers, Off-hand ascension crossbow.pngYodaAscension crossbow.png 02:32, February 21, 2010 (UTC)

EXTREME Support - You have violated the wiki rules and are now hiding behind these comments? REALLY?!!?!?!? It's too late for redemption, Parsonsda. My mind is made! --Abyssal whip.png Superplayer08Talk HS Log Dragon dagger (p++).png 02:38, February 21, 2010 (UTC)Superplayer08

Support 1 week ban - I have never supported banning a user who tries to help before (I think I was once the only person out of 20 that opposed the ban =P) but I feel that there must be some kind of consequences for Parsonsda's actions. Ignoring the personality aspect which shouldn't have any bearing on anyone's decision, the serial lying in an attempt to get YG threads passed, the blatent disregard for Yew Grove decisions as well as copyright laws, and the faked photo which as far as I can tell Parsonsda still hasn't "put in context", are all pre-meditated (not in the heat of the moment, he made a rational decision to make each one) can't be ignored due to their serious nature.

I don't think that anything will be achieved by increasing the ban time by more then a week. The longer we make the ban, the more likely it is that he will take the decision sourly and get a vendetta against the Wiki. I think that the ban should be a warning that action will be taken against his account if he continues, not a punishment for is actions. Unicorn horn dust.png Evil Yanks talk 04:01, February 21, 2010 (UTC)

Support 1 Week Block - I don't like users who lay blame of their actions on other things. It's not mature, it's not responsible. It's a lame excuse, alright. You want attention? You can't sit still is all, and blaming anything on ADHD is a lame excuse for any action. You have full control and knowledge of what you are doing. Take the hit and come back in a week.

Support 1 week+ block - Well stated Bonzi. Quite frankly, I think the entire ADHD thing is BS. It may explain your actions if you have it, but it does not justify them which you are responsible for. Prayer.png Jedi Talk HS Log Tracker Summoning.png 08:05, February 21, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - Parsonsda is sorry for what he is done, and if he does have ADHD that explains SOME of his behaviour. He is only trying to help the wiki, and if we never accepted apologies, this whole world would be calling eachother liars, because everybody lies sometime in their life, however, I do think we should give him a warning to tell him not to vandalise any wiki and to be less "power-hungry" on "his" KvK wiki.Blazestrike 12:45, February 21, 2010 (UTC)

Support 1 Week Block - Per Bonzi. {{}}Shiki | 直死の魔眼 13:24, February 21, 2010 (UTC)

'Support '- Ok, some Parsonsda claims to have adhd. Do we really know if he has that? Can anyone prove he has adhd, besides Parsonda? I think we should punish him, or as Evil Yanks said, a warning action against his account, with all the information that we truly have and know. Not something someone claims about him or he claims about himself, cause if there's no one else to prove that he has adhd, then it could a lie to save himself. Plus adhd, as said above, can be controlled. Black platebody (h5).pngPtmmtp TalkBlack full helm (t).png 13:26, February 21, 2010 (UTC)

  1. You will have talk page access, but I don't think it's possible to give you user page acces.
  2. Per RS:DDD, we're keeping this thread, but don't worry, it will be archived; it's not going to ruin your life.

Well, I do hope you've learned something. But as for number 3, nobody can control what another user does, nor enforce any punishment unless it's against the UTP. And this thread won't ruin your life :Phttp://img268.imageshack.us/img268/3921/thehimmemote.pngGone. 17:16, February 21, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - I'm impressed with your decision. As long as you don't cause trouble, you'll find that we're actually a friendly bunch. ^_^ Also, I don't think the instant kick for lying is really necessary.  Tien  17:20, February 21, 2010 (UTC)

No. Your latest comment on my talk page suggests to me that are not really sorry, and would likely not follow through on your "promises". Also, to any opposers to a block, I'm willing to bet that a lot of of you do NOT understand the severity of the faked image.
