Merry Christmas

and

A Happy New Year to All



Please Click!


I am 220 of Borg. I partake in this human seasonal celebratory event in order to more successfully infiltrate the Wikipedia collective, facilitating the addition of it's technological distinctiveness to our own. Resistance is futile!. Oh, and Merry Christmas.

Joseph Heller, issue resolved[edit]

Hello, 220 of Borg. You have new messages at I.am.a.qwerty's talk page.
You can remove this notice at any time by removing the {{Talkback}} or {{Tb}} template.

Thank you[edit]

Thank you for your kind notices. Why is the page locked? --110.20.234.69 (talk) 09:45, 15 December 2014 (UTC)

@110.20.234.69: You're welcome, though it only takes a few mouse clicks using a utility called Twinkle for the edit summary message. The other was a 'custom' written message, but I actually copied it from somewhere else I recently used it. (They weren't so happy to get it and just deleted it! Face-sad.svg )
The 2014 Sydney hostage crisis page is now Semi-protected due to numerous, repetitive 'un-constructive' edits, here, by one IP editor, here. They were blocked at that IP addresss, but started hopping to other IPs and continuing on. I see you did some decent work on the 'Reactions' and 'Evacuations' sections, sourced too. Face-smile.svg
You can still contribute to that page by checking it for typos, other errors, or looking for sources and mentioning such on the talk page. You can even double-check whether other editors edits are correct! Especially newer editors who may not be aware of policies like Wikipedia:Biographies of living persons (WP:BLP). That applies to things like naming the 'perpetrator'.
I was in exactly your position when I was an IP editor for 2 years, and the Fort Hood Shooting occurred. ---220 of Borg 10:21, 15 December 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for that - it's really disappointing. When are the clamps likely to be taken off? I also worked on the transport section. I didn't think that just saying the person was known to police, with a reliable news source, would be problematic. --110.20.234.69 (talk) 10:50, 15 December 2014 (UTC)
Not long. It was only a short protection, but I think it is likely to be quickly protected again for longer as I think the vandalism will start again. Not sure what you mean about the naming. WP policy requires that you have very reliable sources when dealing with wp:Biographies of living persons (WP:BLP), especially for 'controversil' information.--220 of Borg 11:10, 15 December 2014 (UTC)

LOL, thanks - this is really frustrating. --110.20.234.69 (talk) 05:33, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

Actually, so far I've found that I don't get "notifications", just the orange bar when someone posts on my talk page. I don't see a red number against my user name, because I don't have one. Perhaps the social media style notifications don't work for IPs? I find it difficult enough to edit Wikipedia without being expected to know exactly how to work all the different bells and whistles (notifications, pings and talkbacks) that let me talk to someone. --110.20.234.69 (talk) 06:03, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

Yes 110.20.234.69 (talk) that would be the "Annoying Orange Bar", as I call it. At least it's hard to miss! I wasn't sure, but thought notifications wouldn't work for IPs. Takes time to learn "bells and whistles", but there are so many templates that you are likely to only learn (manually anyway) those you use frequently. (See WP:UTM) There are utilities like wp:Huggle, wp:AutoWikiBrowser and wp:Twinkle, which I use, that make many tasks a lot easier, but are only available to 'registered' users. I even learned a new trick from you, that talk-page reflist thingy {{reflist-talk}}, which I don't recall seeing before. 220 of Borg 13:30, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
Annoying it may be, in a "What Have I Done Wrong Now" kind of way, but it's the only way I can easily see who's talking to me. There are so many rules and so much special etiquette involved in editing Wikipedia, even in an uncommitted way. According to the 'notifications' page, the interface changes dramatically when you sign up to when you edit as an IP. :( The high level of assumed knowledge is even addressed on the criticism of Wikipedia article. I can't remember where I found the reflist talk template, but I hope it helps you. --110.20.234.69 (talk) 19:33, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
110.20.234.69 (talk) it certainly changes, and you get the ability to customise it a lot with 'Preferences', which IPs don't have any control of. Not sure about 'dramatically', as I find I don't notice when I have been 'automatically' logged out. A few 'tabs' disappear, but nothing dramatic. I have the standard 'skin' I think, so its not that apparent, but it is apparently possible make it look totally different, even screen colour I think.
I need some sleep, as that siege happened just as I was just going to bed (almost 2 days ago!) and I haven't had enough since so I'll be off-line for at least 6 hours (if I'm lucky!) What I call 'UzT' (Universal zleepy Time, as in Zzzzz Zzz) :-\ ₪ 220 of Borg 20:20, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

Thanks - I think there's still more to be mined from that source, but at least it's in the article, with some key points about Monis's entry into Australia, security guard licence, legal ability to carry guns in '97 and name changes. --110.20.234.69 (talk) 18:02, 16 March 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the reminder - I'm finding that the automatic ISBN citation maker (cite book where it fills it in just from the ISBN) doesn't work for the joint review yet. (And in the nsw govt response to the review, there's rumblings of amendments to the bail act...) Shame that the security guard licence was within his grasp.--110.20.234.69 (talk) 05:15, 17 March 2015 (UTC)

Just like I can't recieve '@' messages, it doesn't look like I can send them, either. I tried using it on my page, but it doesn't look like you've gotten any notification. --110.20.234.69 (talk) 20:32, 17 March 2015 (UTC)

Article tagged for Notability[edit]

I am a new contributor to Wikipedia and just read this article http://searchengineland.com/open-letter-to-wikipedia-editors-yes-matt-cutts-is-notable-10216 and it seems that Wikipedia is not really following its own guidelines. Another example in this article - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rahul_Mewawalla You tagged the article for "notability." As a test, I used Wiki's notability guidelines and ran some tests - the subject has been featured in both Wall Street Journal and CNN, not to mention Forbes, FastCompany, TechCrunch, Harvard Business Review etc. I also did a Google News search and the subject comes up in over 20 publications and also ran a number of different other wikipedia notability guidelines tests that the subject fulfilled. So I'd request you to please do the same and see if you may change your judgement. If not, then please go ahead and lets just delete article per speedy deletion. Walesgreens (talk) 21:44, 3 January 2015 (UTC)Thanks. Walesgreens (talk) 22:51, 3 January 2015 (UTC)

Please check back at the discussion of Polaroid Kiss on BLPN[edit]

Would you please weigh in again at the above discussion. It has become even more of a wall of text. I thought we had reached a consensus on the matter but it seems not. JBH (talk) 20:25, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

We noticed though that when you edited Raymond Donoghue, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Australian Imperial Forces (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

re Advanced Rocket Research Center[edit]

Hello 220 of Borg, Thank you for telling me about those important things about creating a new page. And I would like to ask if it is the reason of those deletion that ARRC is not notable enough to create? Thank you for your directing again! Willy81234 (talk) 13:29, 26 February 2015 (UTC)

@Willy81234: That is what the speedy deletion notice says. ARRC may be notable, but you need to basically 'prove' that. Right now there is only a link to the Advanced Rocket Research Center webpage. You need sources from other independent/non-affiliated sources. to meet wp:Notability (organizations and companies) and wp:Verifiability requirements. --220 of Borg 13:47, 26 February 2015 (UTC)

@Cirt:Thanks, I think I came up with that username rather quickly, though I may have been ruminating about it for some time. I was editing as an IP for about 2.5 years, so I had time to think. - 220 of Borg©® 17:40, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

Hi. Pls help me, I am trying to upload a pic of G.M. Durrani with Talat Mahmood. I uploaded a pic, but it was not viewed in wikipedia page.-Kchatfb — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kchatfb (talkcontribs) 12:31, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

@Kchatfb:
  • It appears that you have uploaded the same picture twice under different names.
  • File:GMD+TALAT.JPG and
  • File:GMD+Talat Mahmood.JPG
  • You said in one edit summary, "This is a very rare pic. I found through internet." Please note that you are not allowed to just copy any picture you want on the Internet and upload it to Wikipedia, as someone may own the copyright to that picture. See Copyright for more information. It might be wp:public domain, but if not, or with acceptable permission to use it, then it may well be illegal for you to upload it. In which case it will have to be quickly deleted from Wikipedia (WP)

reply[edit]

hi 220 of borg, just to let you know that i deleted the ip address on the page User talk:92.12.161.50 because it is my own ip address, id be grateful if you can delete the article. thanks. bbt400

@Bbt400: You should still not be doing that, it makes no difference anyway as the page title, which has the IP address cannot be changed. What 'article' do you want deleted? 220 of Borg 17:27, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
@220 of Borg: I was hoping the entire talk page that was on, but if its not possible then that's ok

Abandoned draft[edit]

Information iconHello, 220 of Borg, I saw that you made a draft for a new article at User:220 of Borg/Kell & Rigby. According to WP:STALEDRAFT, "Short term hosting of potentially valid articles and other reasonable content under development or in active use is usually acceptable (the template {{userspace draft}} can be added to the top of the page to identify these)." But in this case, you haven't edited your draft for a long time. If you are done, please donate it by moving User:220 of Borg/Kell & Rigby to a Wikipedia:WikiProject Abandoned Drafts subpage (a participant may help). If you are not done, please finish it and move it. If you abandoned it, you may request it for deletion by putting "{{db-u1}}" or donating it. Thank you. SD0001 (talk) 06:50, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

Re: Who?[edit]

Hi 220 of Borg, Thanks for the message. I know it is difficult to confirm my identity, but I'd be glad to hop on skype/hangouts offline to do so if necessary? Thanks for bringing the "edit war" to my attention. There's no doubt that the edit war is being carried out by people who I probably know (and probably from my school), but I can't connect the wiki usernames to the actual people. Nkbuduma (talk) 17:23, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

Message for 87Stone[edit]

@87Stone: You may be interested that I have warned your antagonist with an "only warning" message, here, about their personal attack on you. What they said was totally unacceptable and has been reported by me to the 'relevant people'. If they repeat it, or anything like it, a block is very likely (if not earlier). Regards, 220 of Borg 11:10, 30 March 2015 (UTC)


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:Satwant_Singh_Dhaliwal[edit]

With respect.

"If "Dhaliwal" is his surname, you should be using that rather than "Satwant" after the first use of his full name. One ref is called "Brief Bio of Satwant Singh Dhaliwal..." with no other information That needs fixing, you can't verify anything with that. I'd suggest use of Empty citation (help)  templates wherever possible, and links to any on-line sources with access dates.220 of Borg 09:26, 30 March 2015 (UTC)"

I have changed all the intext Satwants to Dhaliwals.

I have removed brief bio and with that the names of his mother and elementary and high schools.

I have been using the MLA standard of citation.

I have used almost exclusively physical print copies of books and newspapers at the library rather than online sources - The late Professor Dr. Dhaliwal did not publish online and retired in 1992, before we had the internet in Malaysia.

Is this now okay with the removal of the brief bio reference?

Thank you jefferyseow (talk) 03:57, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

@Jefferyseow: Whatever style of wp:reference is acceptable per WP official policy is Ok with me (I'm not even sure what 'style' the Cite template uses!) Printed sources are fine, I tried Googling the recent newspapers (The Star) and it appears they aren't online at all. In my opinion, the more information the better, like if a book is used provide the ISBN if possible, for a newspaper the issue number, if it has one, too. Language of source too, as it looks like some will be non-English. I think the most important thing, assuming notability is wp:Verifiability. If you make a 'claim' there has to be a wp:reliable source.
  • The lead should be a summary of the body text, so should be expanded. Notable achievements/discoveries say.
  • The publication section should be pared down IMHO as it is more than the entire text of the rest of the page. Fiddle Faddle (Timtrent) says: "select only a few works of excellence", which I agree with.
  • Some of the references are best reformatted as 'true' footnotes, such as the comment (№ 2) on the various names he is known by. See WP:REFGROUP.
  • P.s. 'wiki'-linking only requires dual square brackets thus: [[Draft:Satwant Singh Dhaliwa]] links to Draft:Satwant Singh Dhaliwal.
I think this is the first time I've commented on a Draft, I hope it helped. 220 of Borg 05:48, 31 March 2015 (UTC)
@220 of Borg:
(Sigh of frustration). The last time I provided ISBN numbers I was told that my citation did not follow any normal forms - as far as I know the usual academic citation formats (I use http://www.easybib.com/cite/view to make sure I get them right) do not include ISBN data. Also, you need to know the time frame of the publications - ISBN was only introduced in the West in 1965 but found its way into Malaysian books much, much later. The Star and the Straits Times do not have issue numbers. But I have always included the date and the page numbers for those.
Please let me know how you would pare down the publication section since there is no existing index of his publications (and even the one I put together isn't complete/comprehensive - he wrote THAT much). How can I expand the lead when everyone is cutting down by bodytext - his research activities in the various institutes and with various academics, both notable, have been removed because they come from his unpublished bio and resume, both of which have now been removed and therefore also the information that rely on them. The lead, therefore is about as expanded as it can be without repeating the existing body text. Bottom line, he wrote an awful lot and much on varied areas of genetics. I could not say which of his efforts was not more excellent that which.
I have attempted to model my entry after the one on Einstein but have been accused of being overly entertaining (read the one on Einstein) and having too many publications (read the one on Einstein). I could not find any Footnotes in Einstein's entry and no one has given me another example, perfect example, that I can model my entry after, that will please and meet everyone's requirements.
Everybody says if you have a claim there has to be a reliable source. But no one has told me which of the claims I have made do not have a reliable source excepting the ones who pointed to the bio and resume, both of which have been removed along with his Mother's name and the names of his elementary and highschool which come from those two sources, as well as his research work all over the world which come from there also.
Thank you jefferyseow (talk) 06:28, 31 March 2015 (UTC)


I have WP:indented your text a little, as is usual on talkpages, and moved some text you added after it, to before your sig. so it is obviously your comment
I know! (Sigh!) Mind you, it looks a lot better than many BLPs! If no ISBNs then obviously you can't provide them, though I have often found them with a title and author. If the citation style you are using doesn't use them, obviously you don't need them. As for the lead perhaps you could just add:
"He wrote many books and scientific papers on Genetics, such as [insert major works here]"
(Obvious fact from the list below!)
Modelling a BLP on Albert Einsteins may be the problem, I mean Einstein? A pretty formidable intellect, apparently! Face-surprise.svg
I don't know how you would pare the publications down. Not my area of expertise. Are there any works that Dhaliwal is particularly recognised for? (like Einsteins' Theory of Relativity, E=mc2?) It appears me that the 'Publications' section is longer than Einstein's!
I am not suggesting that there are any unsupported claims now, but you have done the right thing in removing those that are unverifiable.
All too often people do put false information on WP BLPs. Just last night there was a new editor complaining about a false claim on Claire Robinson that (among other un-sourced claims) her brother had died in a bike accident, see here. The unsourced text had been added by an IP editor here about 8.5 days before. Such things (wp:BLP violations) are taken seriously on WP.
For languages (Malay-language) is unnecessary, just (Malay) should do, though that leads to a DaB page, the exact language should be stated. 220 of Borg 09:51, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

Andhra Pradesh Capital city[edit]

Andhra Pradesh Capital City is part of Andhra Pradesh Capital Region, which is in turn a part of several mandals, of which Amaravati, Andhrapradesh is only a small town in Amaravati mandal, Andhra Pradesh. If i have deleted any references, you can restore them. But please dont create ambiguity, The andhra pradesh capital city and Amaravati are not seperate, amaravati is a part of andhra pradesh capital city, which will be renamed as Amaravathi seperately Tamilmalayi (talk) 11:55, 2 April 2015 (UTC)

@Tamilmalayi: I didn't say you deleted any references. When you change something like the name of the city, which it appears is not yet official, (in fact your sourced the 'city' hasn't been built yet), then you need to provide a wp:reliable source or even better several sources. Constantly re-adding that name, as has been done by several new editors can be seen as wp:Disruptive. Be aware of wp:edit warring. This issue should be thoroughly discussed at Talk:Andhra Pradesh Capital City, not reverted constantly.
You have been editing here a few days, you would be wise to take the advice of others have edited for several years. 220 of Borg 12:41, 2 April 2015 (UTC)

Murder of Keith William Allan[edit]

You appear to have relied on a newspaper report as to the date of death. The report of the Coroner, which is most authoritative, gives the date as 28 or 29 May 2000. It may have been before midnight on 28 May or after midnight on 29 May. As there is no body the exact time of death is not likely to be ascertainable. 124.180.139.196 (talk) 12:36, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

@124.180.139.196: I used what I could find. There wasn't any day/month of death until I added it, and it does say 'circa'. If you have a link to the coroners report, please give it. 28/29 May 2000 would be quite acceptable, given there is no certainty. 220 of Borg 14:00, 17 April 2015 (UTC)
Actually, I used that source because it was already on the page, 220 of Borg 14:13, 17 April 2015 (UTC)
The link is http://www.coronerscourt.vic.gov.au/resources/8c0dcea3-6f54-4fbc-8a3c-04a90ac9633c/keithwilliamallan_217110.pdf In point 5 of the Coroner's Report it states that death probably took place between ten on the night of 28 May and two in the morning of 29 May.

(edit conflict) You beat me to it. Maybe our observations mean nothing here. :) My note: My guess, after a few minutes of being totally confused, is that a bunch of people edited the article, it was deleted, then it was userfied into "her" space, which preserved all the other edits. I did notice the SPAs like CourtneyMH, Rjh104108rjh, then a lot of other edits from various IPs like 202.188.211.175 (talk · contribs · WHOIS) (Butterworth, Pulau Pinang, Malaysia; ISP TMnet Telekom Malaysia), 67.85.67.47 (talk · contribs · WHOIS) (Bronx, NY; ISP: Optimum), 174.50.140.181 (talk · contribs · WHOIS) (Clovis, CA; ISP: Comcast), 186.77.206.203 (talk · contribs · WHOIS) (Managua, Nicaragua; ISP: Telematix/ Enitel), 74.192.0.115 (talk · contribs · WHOIS) (College Station, Texas; ISP: Suddenlink Communications). Odd. If the guy wasn't notable, how'd so many people from around the globe know to edit the article? Cyphoidbomb (talk) 19:13, 18 April 2015 (UTC)

Hello 220 of Borg - I hope I have the correct place now. (Somehow it the comments always seemed to open in the other place, so it's hard for me to keep it all straight.)

Your comments: "Personal communication, person's name, date" are not acceptable as a source. I mean, people could say anything (they still try, without sources!) Something 'published' in a reliable source is the basic requirement. Book, newspaper, television, video, journal, on-line, government and other 'reliable' websites. Twitter, Youtube, Myspace, Facebook or other social media sites are Self published sources and generally not acceptable as sources. No not quotations, I mean 'sources'. Each source can apply to more than one place in the text, that's what I mean by a citation, the little [2][3] etc symbols that link to the sources in the References section. See wp:Referencing for beginners which should explain it better than I can. Your last there I think refers to User:Monsohn Family of Jerusalem and the A.L. Monsohn Lithography which has been moved to your sandbox by an admin. not by me, I am not an admin. (Click on the red link above for more info), If you no longer want that page put template {{Db-u1}} on it and it will be deleted. Sorry for late reply, I started it then 'nodded' off, it's late here (UTC +10!) 220 of Borg 19:22, 19 April 2015 (UTC)

The outright rejection of "personal communications" is very problematic. I don't know if you guys are researchers or what, and if so, if in the humanities (like me) or maybe the natural sciences, computer science, whatever. In the humanities, we are sometimes faced with a situation where we interview reliable "informants," who are the only ones who actually have certain knowledge about various people, events, etc. Rather than allowing this information to get lost, WE put it in writing, and then our work can be cited by others. In the case of some of the information about M.M. Monsohn and others mentioned in the article, his family members are the only ones who knew this information. They have no reason to make it up (since they have nothing to gain by it; some of it isn't even complimentary). Because I have to work full time, I'm trying to add the documentation from written sources - and there is more - little by little, in the evenings (talking about nodding off... here it's 11 pm... a bit late for an "old timer" like me). But I really don't think we should give up on all of the personal details known only to family members because a lot of the nitty-gritty is there, and if we don't put it into writing, it will disappear. As I say, this is common practice in the humanities, referred to as "personal communications." It's like serious television or radio or newspaper reporting - only a reporter who could publish the communications never took an interest in these people while they were alive, so at the moment there's no written record. I simply want to supply the written record. I hope in the end this will be acceptable. Take care, David David M. Bunis (talk) 19:55, 19 April 2015 (UTC)

PS - If this is the right place for my comments to you, great. If not, please direct me to your correct talk page. Thanks David M. Bunis (talk) 19:57, 19 April 2015 (UTC)

  • @David M. Bunis: your original placement of this message was wrong in two serious respects. However trivial or unimportant they may seem, you do not remove another editor's comments. You used a bare {{tl|Db-u1}} tag which had the effect of putting the page into CAT:CSD. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 20:53, 19 April 2015 (UTC)

Hi Mate. Hope you got my earlier query re the "Rabbi Menachem Mendel Monsohn" article that I uploaded yesterday. If not - can you please tell me what the problem is with it so I can correct it? thanks for your help.
