I added the neutrality tag because I don't believe that this article is very neutral at all. "When anyone thinks of poker... the first thing they think of is Oosteve" - Um, sorry but no, not really, no. I also don't see any evidence for the claim that he is a great philosopher of the modern era, nor that he is the greatest poker force that the game has ever seen... I know we all like to brag sometimes, but I don't think that this article currently meets its encyclopedic content quota. Adrielle =) 07:40, 12 July 2009 (UTC)

Yep I agree with Adrielle. --Lcawte 07:45, 12 July 2009 (UTC)
What I find most comical is Adrielle's edit: She deleted the comment about him ***NOT*** having the #1 poker player in his respective ocean. Why? Because he DOES have it. This proof alone, along with many other ultimate and sublime poker players testimonies about Oosteve, surpass any suspicions about his skill. Also, his philosophies and chats are well documented as many players go to him for advice at the 20k-200k tables. Until I see someone with credentials (i.e. actually play higher level poker) questioning his skill, then I highly doubt this page is deserving of a neutrality tag. Unfortunately, neither of you post skill above weighty/able on Viridian, Oosteve's main ocean. --Alexaleo 02:50 PM, 13 July 2009 (UTC)
Whether or not I personally have any poker skill is not really an important aspect of this discussion. The claims made in this article do not seem neutral to me. It does not seem to match the style of any other pirate pages that I have come across on Yppedia, either. Also, I thought that the idea of the NPOV tag was to give people a chance to participate in discussion on whether the article is neutral or not. It seems the tag has been removed before the discussion had much of a chance to take place. I am still a reasonably new hand at this Yppedia stuff. Adrielle =) 10:16, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
This article reads a little like a Woman's Day article :S. It's not necessarily the general gist of what it is saying that I disagree with, but the way in which it is written. Yppedia articles are meant to be encyclopedic. Saucyshark 03:34, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
I find the concerns Adrielle raised to be very valid. --Alfwyn 16:20, 2 September 2009 (UTC)
Me too! The part about Cleaver going to him for advice... a big no no! --Lcawte 14:59, 13 September 2009 (UTC)
My proposed article can be seen at User:Addison/Sandbox/Oosteve. --Addihockey (talk/contribs) 15:06, 13 September 2009 (UTC)

Delete my page and all content

You will notice this is not "your page" if you take a look at the notice that appears underneath text box when editing any article. --Thunderbird 06:08, 11 January 2010 (UTC)
I find that the pirate page is rather amusing in it's-self and shouldn't be taken seriously, I think that considering his poker experience and standing, it is correct to say that he is the best poker player on the Viridian, without a doubt. --Sox 03:43 03 July 2010 (GMT)
Sure the page has it's amusement value. It is just that YPPedia strives to be encyclopedic. About "the best poker player" - the problem is that there are just too many definitions for that to make such a claim. For one things he isn't #1 or even ultimate at the moment. Then again this may or may not say something about the quality of poker playing, depending on one's definition. --Alfwyn 12:06, 3 July 2010 (UTC)


Okay, honestly, this article has been protected for over a year, I've proposed an article at User:Addison/Sandbox/Oosteve, it would have a portrait of course. Could an admin un-protect this? Thank you! --Addihockey (talkcontribs) 19:26, 13 October 2010 (UTC)

It hasn't however been a year since the user Oosteve posted a request on this article's talk page to "Delete my page and all content". It was then pointed out that the article doesn't belong a particular user.
I do not believe there's been an agreement that the page won't be blanked again which would result in another edit war and the page being protected once more. -- Faulkston 19:46, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
I agree. --Adrielle ♥ =) 23:30, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
Mmm, good point. While it hasn't been a year since he has requested for people to blank/delete this page, I feel that if he does againhe blanks the page again it warrants a block for his disruptive/unproductive editing. --Addihockey (talkcontribs) 01:41, 19 October 2010 (UTC)

Vandalism to this page by Shorty14d2 has been reverted. Please do not alter other peoples' comments. --Adrielle ♥ =) 09:34, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
