User talk:John Stephenson
Dear John Stephenson:
I just got the strange notification, that may refer to events of past years. It mentions you; so, I think, you should be informed.
[delete email - formatting messing up]
Did you sent that message to me?
I cannot find the activity specified as "2 February 2016 by John Stephenson" in the message I got. Perhaps, some software error took place.
My point of view did not changed. I still qualify as error the removal of the material mentioned at my talk page. My argumentation is simple and I see no need to repeat it.
- The software is set to automatically send a message to an account-holder each time one of their user pages is changed, unless you specify otherwise. So, it's not an error. I was just changing a template which should have been updated to reflect the decision to move the page to your user space. Otherwise, the page would still appear as an active case in the 'Removal Calls' list. John Stephenson (talk) 21:58, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
Not this time, thanks. Last time I was on Council I found it frustrating. The Managing Editor asked us to do things; I did them, spending quite a lot of time on it; no-one else did; nothing happened. Thanks for all you do. Best wishes, --Martin Wyatt (talk) 19:14, 20 May 2016 (UTC)
- Thanks. I can see how that would have been frustrating. By the way, it was Anthony who nominated you. John Stephenson (talk) 19:20, 20 May 2016 (UTC)
I can't find your private email address either on the email you sent me or on your user page. It would be on the forum, but that's still off line. For the record, I have, or used to have, two other email accounts, with cantab.net and gmx. I haven't used either for a long time, but I could try to reactivate one if that would help.

- My interpretation is that self-promotion violates 5 and 6 of the CZ Policies document (advertising and non-neutrality). It's also a breach of the existing policy on self-promotion, which remains as non-binding guidance. Hope this helps. John Stephenson (talk) 14:14, 13 May 2017 (UTC)
