I replied to you[edit source]
Stupid Abd[edit source]
- Stupid Abd is concerned that you may be pretending to be two different users, when you are probably one person, from what I've seen. Mabuabsdd, you just created User:Jacklover1, as if you were Jacklover1. Please stop this kind of thing. If you will list, on your user page, the accounts you have created, I have no problem, personally, with you having multiple accounts, and I will help you keep them.
- But if you pretend otherwise, that creates problems for Wikiversity, and it will have to stop. That is called "sock puppetry," and if an adult did it, or someone we think is an adult, they would be quickly blocked for it, and, in this case, the block could stop anyone from your school from writing on Wikiversity, and we might need to talk to the school.
- Am I stupid for trying to talk to you and help you? This is a learning exercise for both of us. Are you learning? What are you learning? I know I'm learning. Have a great day! --Abd 14:52, 9 February 2011 (UTC)
Did you consider
Brevity is the
I talk with real kids every day, Moulton. In this age range. Sometimes few words is best, sometimes many. I do worry about the number of words above, for the age range, but the kids were getting it. Just not you.
Meanwhile, this Jacklover1 account has been globally locked, "stuffed in the hall closet," to use your favorite expression about JWS. Your contribution to fixing that? Or do you care? --Abd 17:05, 10 February 2011 (UTC)
- My contribution to fixing that was presented to you thrice now. You are free to disregard it and do something ineffective at best and counterproductive at worst, if that's your heartfelt preference. —Moulton 17:24, 10 February 2011 (UTC)
- Your "contribution" consisted of suggesting, on meta -- where you are banned -- that I do what you could do just as easily, but what I consider would be positively harmful, disrupting a month of effort here. I do know what I'm doing, quite well, backed with current study of child psychology, real experience with real kids in this age range, and consultation with an expert in the field of transformational education. Here is what you suggested , the version here on Wikiversity:
- *Abd, the thing to do in these cases is to ask one of the youngsters to call the teacher over to the computer. Discuss with the teacher their role in working online with their students to ensure that the students are using online resources in an appropriate and educationally constructive manner. —Moulton 15:54, 10 February 2011 (UTC)
- Kids, what do you think? What would you do if I did what Moulton is asking? I think I know, but it is really for you to say. You can be honest, it won't hurt. Moulton is not in charge here.
- Moulton, what would you do if someone asked you to do this? Serious question. --Abd 17:47, 10 February 2011 (UTC)
