School of MathematicsEdit

Hi, you deleted School of Mathematics but failed to update all the references to it. Now on the main page there's a link to non-existent article:


Can you make me a custodian? ---Draubb

Sorry, but I am not even a custodian myself since the project was hijacked a few years ago. Ottava Rima (talk) 03:42, 18 May 2013 (UTC)


How is Abd, is he blocked or something, I heard you blocked Abd for multiple accounts. I am schocked because he warned me not to create multiple accounts. What's wrong with Abd? Please give me an answer on my discussion page. See ya around! Draubb (discusscontribs)

Abd is a proponent of the fringe theory of Cold Fusion, and will create multiple accounts and do whatever he can to wage war against 99.9999% of the world who realizes that his ideas are nonsense. Ottava Rima (talk) 23:27, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

Why do you hate him so much? Please answer on my talk page Draubb (discusscontribs) 00:36, 19 May 2013 (UTC)

Matter concerning you at [[1]]. - Sidelight12 Talk 01:23, 10 September 2014 (UTC)


Hello Ottava Rima, Can you please send me a message to my talk page or Wikiversity:Candidates for Custodianship/Draubb. Can you please check on my contributions section and please leave a message on one of the two pages and say if my contributions are helping or not and explaining what I can do? Thank you very much Ottava Rima! --Draubb (discusscontribs) 22:49, 27 May 2013 (UTC)

Question about blocked userEdit

Hello, sorry to bother you about this. Abd asked about a banned user markoril, who was blocked about two years ago. I don't know why this still matters. Can you clarify what happened then, with that blocked user? You can see the inquiry on my talkpage. Thanks. - Sidelight12 Talk 21:34, 4 October 2013 (UTC)

[2]. The guy was a long term sock puppet associated with the site that he spammed, and he did it under multiple names across the wikimedia sites. Clear vandal, and something that Abd has encouraged in the past. Ottava Rima (talk) 22:14, 4 October 2013 (UTC)
Alright then. Thanks. I actually saw that page. So there's clear evidence that, that user used other names? Ok then, I'll take your word for it. The Wikipedia custodian also made that statement in the block explanation. - Sidelight12 Talk 22:30, 4 October 2013 (UTC)

Welcome back!Edit

Good to see you back Ottava, you want to do a little work around here? --Goldenburg111 (talk|contribs) 20:16, 22 December 2013 (UTC)

Which topic? And I never really left. I always watch the recent contribs. Ottava Rima (talk) 20:17, 22 December 2013 (UTC)
Ottava, you may do any topic you desire to. --Goldenburg111 (talk|contribs) 20:23, 22 December 2013 (UTC)
Oh, I know that. I just thought you might have had one in particular you needed help with. After the desysopping, I stopped producing content and limited my role. Too many games were played and I have a real life to focus on. Ottava Rima (talk) 20:29, 22 December 2013 (UTC)
I figured you were watching this site without necessarily logging in. Greetings. - Sidelight12 Talk 20:24, 22 December 2013 (UTC)
Hola. Ottava Rima (talk) 20:29, 22 December 2013 (UTC)
Ottava, you said Abd's ideas are nonsense. Don't you find that insulting to Abd??? --Goldenburg111 (talk|contribs) 20:31, 22 December 2013 (UTC)
He was banned from Wikipedia for promoting what was revealed to be absolutely false claims about cold fusion. Dealing with Abd's obsession with fringe topics, with people who appropriately prohibited him based on his actions, and from the trouble he caused here is what I feel justifies my comments. One of the reasons why I don't care to bother too much with producing content like I did is his activity. My material is part of my academic research, is mainstream, and connected to my reputation.

Enydmion SocietyEdit

Please use a real account rather than anonymous IP, and tag all of whatever you want deleted. Day-by-day requests are just hiding the scope of your intent and giving the impression that we should reinitiate RFD discussion Archive 9. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 00:30, 27 July 2019 (UTC)

The Endymion Society page was originally created as part of a step by step process on how to build a book with the pages. The book was already built and so the original instruction classroom page became redundant. I've been going slowly through them to make sure everything was copied over and included. Ottava Rima (talk) 00:37, 27 July 2019 (UTC)
All of the files here [3] and the general page [4] can be deleted due to no longer being active and no longer pertinent. There is only one author, and the fragmentary nature of it makes it uneducational now that the project is long done. Ottava Rima (talk) 00:46, 27 July 2019 (UTC)
As a side note - [5] this level of vandalism is partly why leaving up the unneeded material is a problem. No one is monitoring it. Ottava Rima (talk) 01:06, 27 July 2019 (UTC)
