Software design pattern / External link to[edit]

Hello, I think that the w3sDesign Patterns website contains encyclopedic and accurate material that is relevant to the understanding of the subject. Please visit the site and see what it has to offer. I would like to add a link to it.

Bias against small companies?[edit]

You are attempting to delete all articles written about Goverlan. Goverlan is a legitimate company servings over 110 countries and 17 industries. It seems that you are biased toward larger corporations. This is a 16 year old company with a proven track record and large client base. Numerous independent reviews and articles have been written about Goverlan. It is most definitely worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia. Perhaps your attentions would be better focused on LANDESK, which was flagged in 2009, but has miraculously escaped deletion for 5 years. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mmh337 (talkcontribs)

Thank you random new user, I'll take your 100% unbiased and independent opinion into consideration. - MrOllie (talk) 17:05, 6 November 2014 (UTC)

Copyright checks when performing AfC reviews[edit]

Hello MrOllie. This message is part of a mass mailing to people who appear active in reviewing articles for creation submissions. First of all, thank you for taking part in this important work! I'm sorry this message is a form letter – it really was the only way I could think of to covey the issue economically. Of course, this also means that I have not looked to see whether the matter is applicable to you in particular.

The issue is in rather large numbers of copyright violations ("copyvios") making their way through AfC reviews without being detected (even when easy to check, and even when hallmarks of copyvios in the text that should have invited a check, were glaring). A second issue is the correct method of dealing with them when discovered.

If you don't do so already, I'd like to ask for your to help with this problem by taking on the practice of performing a copyvio check as the first step in any AfC review. The most basic method is to simply copy a unique but small portion of text from the draft body and run it through a search engine in quotation marks. Trying this from two different paragraphs is recommended. (If you have any question about whether the text was copied from the draft, rather than the other way around (a "backwards copyvio"), the Wayback Machine is very useful for sussing that out.)

If you do find a copyright violation, please do not decline the draft on that basis. Copyright violations need to be dealt with immediately as they may harm those whose content is being used and expose Wikipedia to potential legal liability. If the draft is substantially a copyvio, and there's no non-infringing version to revert to, please mark the page for speedy deletion right away using {{db-g12|url=URL of source}}. If there is an assertion of permission, please replace the draft article's content with {{subst:copyvio|url=URL of source}}.

Some of the more obvious indicia of a copyvio are use of the first person ("we/our/us..."), phrases like "this site", or apparent artifacts of content written for somewhere else ("top", "go to top", "next page", "click here", use of smartquotes, etc.); inappropriate tone of voice, such as an overly informal tone or a very slanted marketing voice with weasel words; including intellectual property symbols (™,®); and blocks of text being added all at once in a finished form with no misspellings or other errors.

I hope this message finds you well and thanks again you for your efforts in this area. Best regards--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 02:20, 18 November 2014 (UTC).

Why have "Distributed Reviews" been removed by you today from:


It would be helpful to understand which properties a Software must have to be published there.
