What again?

I have contributed to Wikipedia since 2006 and have been an admin since the middle of 2007 with a couple of long breaks due to on and off-wiki stress. Historically I have worked mostly on deletion discussions and at one time was one of the most prolific AFD closers. From November 2012 to early 2014 I closed most DRVs but am no longer very active there. I am a strong proponent of applying the GNG to article content - especially for BLPs.

I am mostly inactive now. If you have a question or a request don't be surprised if there is a delay for an answer. I have no problems with you asking another admin on my behalf.

Hadith of Virtues of Persia People[edit]

I saw that this article is deleted by you. I could not participate the discussion because of being busy and I really believe that the subject is notable and is covered by reliable secondary sources. Could I have a copy of the article and how can I ask to undelete it? Mhhossein (talk) 14:03, 29 April 2015 (UTC)

  • If you could explain why you think the subject is notable I can see whether I think its worth reopening the discussion. Spartaz Humbug! 15:08, 29 April 2015 (UTC)
As you see, few editors participated the discussion and their arguments are really defendable. To let you know the details, please provide me with a copy of the article. Thanks Mhhossein (talk) 10:35, 30 April 2015 (UTC)
As I said, what is the argument you want to add to the discussion? Its it isn't going to refute the delete votes (which appeared to be policy based around sources) then there is no point looking at this again. Spartaz Humbug! 20:41, 30 April 2015 (UTC)
The userfied article is at User:Mhhossein/Hadith of Virtues of Persia People Spartaz Humbug! 20:43, 30 April 2015 (UTC)
I've used a secondary source here. It is published in an academic journal. As for the primary sources, please consider that the article is not based on them and I have not analyzed the article using those sources. They are only added to represent the hadiths texts. We'd better improve the article instead of deleting it. Mhhossein (talk) 11:48, 1 May 2015 (UTC)
I'm not qualified to assess that source but if you can find more of the same or better quality I'm willing to delist the discussion.Spartaz Humbug! 16:37, 1 May 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for your valuable attention, I'll let you know as soon as I find reliable sources. Mhhossein (talk) 05:34, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

Good time of day, once again, spartaz! I am very sorry for posting the image of Royal airlines, because I did not know it was existing in English version when I was uploading it. You can delete it (I tried myself, but it did not work and once again help me to delete it. Thank you for helping and understanding! MikleffCoolX (talk) 10:47, 4 May 2015 (UTC)MikleffCoolX

Garrett Sutton[edit]

I was wondering if you could share your reasoning for relisting this page a third time. I understand that Wikipedia recommends not relisting articles more than twice and that if an editor does so, he/she should provide a short explanation. Thank you.
