By the way, you are going to regret deleting the GoldKey page when it is world renouned and I have the power to embarrass you in front of the world because YOU opposed GoldKey. Just thought I would let you know.

Whatever, I correct myself: You tagged it for speedy deletion. If you think it is not the right kind of article, you write one. Use as a reference.

Are you going to take my challenge, or what? Let's see if you can do better in five minutes. (which is what I had) Force4good (talk) 20:17, 16 January 2015 (UTC) Force4good (talk)force4good

I have no interest in any challenge. You are welcome to recreate the page yourself and make it so that it complies with Wikipedia guidelines. If you want to start with the page you had originally, you can contact the deleting administrator who can reverse the deletion if you indicate that you want to do legitimate work on it. I would suggest that, if it will take you some time to work on it, that you indicate that work is in progress either by using an article template or posting on the talk page. 331dot (talk) 04:03, 11 January 2015 (UTC)

Balloon boy xxx[edit]

I think we're well into WP:Don't feed the trolls territory now. If were you I would have stopped after this. I asked Materialscientist to extend the block to include talk page access here if you want to add to it, Meters (talk) 18:39, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the information. I really don't think much more can be added to the situation anyway. Given what they have said about themselves I'm not sure they should be editing here anyway. I think your request is appropriate. 331dot (talk) 19:25, 25 January 2015 (UTC)


Zingindiapower obviously doesn't speak english natively, so writing your long essay isn't really going to help. I've left a nice draft space for him to start in, though it will probably never make it to the mainspace... EoRdE6(Come Talk to Me!)

@EoRdE6:Quite possibly, but I am ever hopeful. Your draft space should hopefully be helpful. 331dot (talk) 02:22, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

Dirt it looks like dirt[edit]

To let you know that user already got warned 4 times and I submitted an AIV report on it see here. I been keeping good eye on that article. —Mythdon 01:07, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

Good to know. Thanks for the information. 331dot (talk) 01:09, 28 January 2015 (UTC)
No problem. I thought I'd fill you in because they been blanking their own talk page of the warnings apparently to cover up the fact they been warned and I'm not even the only user to have submitted an AIV against them as another editor did right after me. —Mythdon 01:10, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

User talk:Supersoftdevelopers[edit]

Hi. I'm just pointing out that we do not delete user talk pages. I have corrected as necessary. If you think the user should be blocked for spam name and/or spam edits, that's another issue, one which you can take to the appropriate noticeboard. --Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 04:54, 1 February 2015 (UTC)

@Kudpung: Thanks for your explanation and I understand what you are saying; but the administrator who blocked the user, Orangemike deleted the page and then recreated it with the block notice. I have seen this done before in instances of blatant spamming on user talk pages, so I thought that would be all right. I did additionally report Supersoftdevelopers at the Username board. 331dot (talk) 11:23, 1 February 2015 (UTC)
OK, well let's not argue with OrangeMike, he's been an admin even longer than I have - and he's very good ;) Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 11:32, 1 February 2015 (UTC)
That said, I don't really see anything wrong with what you said, it is just different. Again, thanks for the explanation. :) 331dot (talk) 11:45, 1 February 2015 (UTC)
A user, especially a blocked user, needs a talk page; but there is no reason to leave blatant and shameless spamming of the kind I deleted, even back in edit history. --Orange Mike | Talk 00:48, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

Your state...[edit]

George Innes - 'The Passing Storm', 1892, High Museum.JPG

The Northeast is the only region of the country I haven't visited. I always imagined the rugged coast of Maine would be beautiful – perhaps a little like the North Shore of Lake Superior in Minnesota, my old state.

Speaking of which, how's your state of mind? Mine corresponds to today's weather: leaden skies, cold rain. Sca (talk) 22:59, 3 February 2015 (UTC)

Did you notice the 'forgetful' comment? Sca (talk) 14:06, 4 February 2015 (UTC)
Not sure what you mean. 331dot (talk) 14:09, 4 February 2015 (UTC)

PS: NYT notes: "Ms. Lee suffered a stroke in 2007 and has been living in an assisted-living facility." Sca (talk) 16:02, 4 February 2015 (UTC)
I have a hunch that there was nothing improper there; TRM might not have even been aware of the stroke and was trying to make a point. 331dot (talk) 16:07, 4 February 2015 (UTC)
But she is 89. Sca (talk) 16:14, 4 February 2015 (UTC)
I still think it is most likely that TRM was just making a point there and likely not aware of her personal health situation. 331dot (talk) 16:22, 4 February 2015 (UTC)
Granted, but given her age the tone seemed inappropriate, IMO. She is a living person, after all Sca (talk) 16:50, 4 February 2015 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── A friend sent me this today – from "Connecting," a newsletter for former AP journalists:

"As reported by AP's Jay Reeves, hometown friends and fans of the To Kill A Mockingbird author are struggling to reconcile the publisher's sensational announcement – that her decades-old manuscript for a sequel had been rediscovered and will be released – with the image of the elderly writer at her sister's recent funeral.
"Grieving, ill and seated in a wheelchair, Lee talked loudly to herself at awkward times during the service for her beloved older sister and attorney, Alice, according to two family friends who attended the November service. Lee mumbled in a manner that shocked some in attendance, said one of the friends."

Hi 331dot, I made an article in my sandbox, and I was wondering whether you could look over it for me. WPPilot is also looking over it, but I think that 2 pairs of eyes are better than 1. Especially 2 pairs that belong to experienced editors.Skate Shady - talk to me 14:42, 4 February 2015 (UTC)

@Sca: Maybe you could look at it too?Skate Shady - talk to me 15:51, 4 February 2015 (UTC)
@Skate Shady: I admit to not being very familiar with how articles on animals should be constructed, but from what I can see what you have seems like a good start. You have what I think is necessary and appropriate basic information about the animal and it all is cited. 331dot (talk) 16:11, 4 February 2015 (UTC)
Alrighty, is there any improvements that you see needed? I mean, as in grammar and such. I just wanted to get the article going.Skate Shady - talk to me 16:14, 4 February 2015 (UTC)
I too know nothing about the subject, but I'd suggest this beginning should be fleshed out a bit with descriptive text. Sca (talk) 16:19, 4 February 2015 (UTC)
The grammar all seems OK to me. Gotta run now but it looks like a good start. :) 331dot (talk) 16:23, 4 February 2015 (UTC)

Speedy Deletion[edit]

A tag has been placed on your user page, User talk:INDO ROAD TRANSPORT COMPANY, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page appears to be blatant advertising which only promotes or publicises a company, product, group or service, and which is a violation of our policies regarding acceptable use of user pages; user pages are intended for active editors of Wikipedia to communicate with one another as part of the process of creating encyclopedic content, and should not be mistaken for free webhosting resources. Please read the guidelines on spam, the guidelines on user pages, and, especially, our FAQ for Organizations.

If you can indicate why the page is not blatant advertising, contest the deletion by clicking on the button that looks like this: Click here to contest this speedy deletion which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy deletion candidate). Doing so will take you to your user talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also edit this page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would help make it encyclopedic. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. 78.26 (spin me / revolutions) 15:11, 4 February 2015 (UTC)

Hmm, above notice is rather silly in context. I won't delete it, just for your own amusement. 78.26 (spin me / revolutions) 15:13, 4 February 2015 (UTC)
I'm not really sure what you are getting at. 331dot (talk) 16:08, 4 February 2015 (UTC)
Sorry. You notified user regarding promotional user name. User proceeded to replace your notice with, you guessed it, an advertisement for his company. I requested speedy, but since you edited his page before he did, you were the one to receive the delete notice. Rather than remove the notice from your talk page, since its yours, I decided to comment on the absurdity of the situation, and let you remove it if that's your preference. That's all. If nothing else, consider this a note of appreciation for your good work here. Cheers! 78.26 (spin me / revolutions) 16:18, 4 February 2015 (UTC)
@78.26: Ah, I understand now. Thanks for the clarification. 331dot (talk) 16:21, 4 February 2015 (UTC)

Hi 331 dot. You sent me a message earlier today, saying that my post was deleted because it seemed like a test. It was not a test. I am having difficulty uploading information about a gallery and would appreciate your help. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Edmichie (talkcontribs) 15:55, 10 February 2015 (UTC)

@Edmichie: It looked like you were trying to post an article on the talk page of the Main Page, which is only supposed to be used to discuss changes to the Main Page. If you are trying to create an article, you can visit this page to do so. 331dot (talk) 17:04, 10 February 2015 (UTC)


Have you thought about an RfA? I know you'd make a great admin! I, while not respected enough to fully take on a nomination for you, could co-nom, and I'm sure you could find an admin who's willing! Thoughts? --AmaryllisGardener talk 17:24, 14 February 2015 (UTC)

I am honored that anyone would think I would be a worthy admin but I'm just focused on helping out Wikipedia where I can, improving the articles that I am able to, and trying to bring another viewpoint to ITN. I do appreciate the kind thought, though. :) 331dot (talk) 17:36, 14 February 2015 (UTC)
That's fine. :) Regards, --AmaryllisGardener talk 17:40, 14 February 2015 (UTC)

You'd be an excellent admin. Don't forget, if you became an admin and made just one positive administrative action, that'd make you a super excellent admin. I know my endorsement probably means nothing, or worse, but I sincerely mean it when I say you have the qualities we need in admins around here... The Rambling Man (talk) 21:57, 16 February 2015 (UTC)

I do appreciate your comment. It means something to me coming from someone who I've always observed acting properly as an admin. 331dot (talk) 22:36, 16 February 2015 (UTC)


Hi I'm interested in starting a page for Jonah Smith British tennis player? Would be brilliant if you could tell me how— Preceding unsigned comment added by Bandit33399 (talkcontribs)

If you want to create an article about a person when a different person has the same name, you need to add something to disambiguate the title of the page; usually this is done with the occupation of the person, so in this case your article should be titled "Jonah Smith (tennis)" or something like that. You can also visit Articles for Creation for more information. 331dot (talk) 18:13, 14 February 2015 (UTC)
Okay thank you. Would it be possible for you to make the page? With the same information I attempted to post by accident?— Preceding unsigned comment added by Bandit33399 (talkcontribs)
If you click the following: Jonah Smith (tennis) it will bring up the edit page. If this is about a living person you will need to have at least one reliable source in the article. 331dot (talk) 18:22, 14 February 2015 (UTC)

Empire News[edit]

The current Empire News (as opposed to the defunct UK printed newspaper) is somewhat equivalent to The Onion - the 'paper' that had an 'interview' with J.K. Rowling in which she claimed to be promoting Satanism, and another item which really upset the Chinese Government because they hadn't realised that it was a satirical paper. Rather like the UK Daily Express front page headlined weather to come, if it's there you don't believe it. Both come below The National Enquirer as reliable sources.

You said that the pipeline was "Not of significance outside North America"; geographic based objections are not usually relevant(as most stories are only relevant to certain regions) and specifically discouraged on the ITNC page (Do not....... about an event relating to a single country, or failing to relate to one.

Please let me put some sort of information about my company on wikipedia since isn't that what that what this site is for? A definition site of free search knowledge. I'm not spamming.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Flave2015 (talkcontribs)

First, the talk page of the Main Page is for discussing the contents of the Main Page(as it states at the top) and not for posting information about companies. Second, Wikipedia is not for promotional purposes; subjects must be shown with reliable sources to meet notability guidelines such as those for companies. Lastly, if you are associated with this company, you should not be creating a page about it yourself per the conflict of interest policy. If your company is truly notable, you can request that an article be created about it at Articles for Creation. 331dot (talk) 17:46, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

Hey 331dot,

Thank you for the message. My username was changed and submitted accordingly. Please advise.


Thomas Bulletproof Studios (talk) 01:53, 5 March 2015 (UTC)

As long as your name meets the guidelines, you should be all set, though changing your username does not eliminate any conflict of interest that might exist. I would just suggest reviewing that policy and proceeding accordingly. --331dot (talk) 02:01, 5 March 2015 (UTC)

Unnecessary hatting[edit]

This seems unnecessary. I have already stated that I am not going to be participating in ITN, so it's not like I'll be prolonging the sub-thread. And hatting in this manner basically allows it to end, without any response from the accused, with TRM's suggestion that instead of talking about an issue I talk about child abuse. I understand your unwillingness to hat his comment because most of it actually related to the topic of the thread, but that's the risk someone takes when using an otherwise on-topic comment to make an off-topic and unnecessary jab. Really, the hat should be complete or not at all. -- tariqabjotu 08:32, 29 March 2015 (UTC)

I will just leave it alone, then(change it back). My goal was to encourage the dispute to at least move elsewhere if not end but I understand what you are saying. Best wishes 331dot (talk) 08:40, 29 March 2015 (UTC)

Muay Farang[edit]

Hi, i read Wikipedia's guidelines and in the article was place many reliable source talking about the company, also this is one of the most important companies in Muay Thai (Martial Arts) World. I can understand if this article was elogiative, but it only talks about the companys structure and what it actually covers. Please i would like more helping around this, since this is a free(dom) encyclopedia, how come money buys buys everything? (To this i refer about the "big" companies that can actally do everything). Thanks — Preceding unsigned comment added by Muayfarangagency (talkcontribs) 14:13, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

I would suggest that you refrain from further edits until your username change has gone through. I believe part of the reason that the article was tagged for deletion as promotional is the fact that you seem to be associated with this organization; generally one should not edit in areas where they have a conflict of interest and I would suggest reviewing that policy. The page does also not indicate what is notable or significant about the organization per notability guidelines. If the page is deleted I would suggest going to Requested articles and request that others create a page about it. 331dot (talk) 14:20, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

Users' unblock requests[edit]

Could I ask you please, when you find an unblock request awaiting admin decision (such as Marleystateofmind, for example) that you refrain from commenting on it? I appreciate that you have the best of intentions, but commenting or acting on these requests is an admin task, and your comment in this case, while wholly correct, is unnecessary. --Anthony Bradbury"talk" 14:07, 1 April 2015 (UTC)

All right, thank you for the information, but can you point out to me where it states that it is forbidden? I've done it before with no one saying anything. Thank you 331dot (talk) 14:10, 1 April 2015 (UTC)
My friend, I did not say it was forbidden; it is not. But it is unnecessary, and as you have no ability to change the status of the block it is best left for an admin to deal with. --Anthony Bradbury"talk" 14:16, 1 April 2015 (UTC)
A further thought; I do note comments made earlier this year, but have you thought again about trying for adminship? You have over 19,000 live edits, spread nicely over the various aspects of the project, and appear to have a good understanding of admin tasks. It would not be my decision, of course, but I suspect you would pass with flying colours. --Anthony Bradbury"talk" 14:30, 1 April 2015 (UTC)
That's kind of you to say, thank you. I've never really thought about it a great deal, as I've been content to help out in the ways I have but perhaps it is something I will consider. Thanks again 331dot (talk) 00:45, 2 April 2015 (UTC)

hi 331dot[edit]

he page you've deleted the human rights of the family caregiver is not promotional but from information on a campaign recently also become European awareness on the violation of these rights by the Italian State, the only European country not to have recognized the family caregiver. This campaign is the Italian media for a few years as you can verify by some links to broadcasts that have discussed:

  • Bulleted list item

human rights of the family caregiver discussed in State Television RAI 1

  • Bulleted list item

human rights of the family caregiver discussed on national TV MEDIASET 4

  • Bulleted list item

human rights of the family caregiver discussed in the national and international TV

  • Bulleted list item

awareness campaign with subtitles on human rights of the family caregiver Italian

In addition, the European Parliament is working on a petition that signals the violation of human rights of the family caregiver in Italian Protocol 302342 / 10.02.2015 image registration to the role — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ribbonblunavyorange (talkcontribs) 22:52, 5 April 2015 (UTC)

I have deleted nothing, as I am not an administrator. What you are doing is what promotion is; you are posting information about a cause and while I'm sure it's a great cause, Wikipedia is not for telling the world about your noble cause. There may be ways to write objectively about this issue, but the current article is not such a page. 331dot (talk) 22:56, 5 April 2015 (UTC)

Clock = time. Sca (talk) 13:52, 14 April 2015 (UTC)

I still don't really understand what that means as a reply, but my only point was that documenting the word count and length of discussion seems unnecessary and suggests a significant discussion is undesirable since you only seem to do it(could be wrong) on lengthy discussions. If you think posting the word count is necessary for some reason it should be done for all discussions- which personally I don't see the need for. 331dot (talk) 13:56, 14 April 2015 (UTC)
Me neither. However, as mentioned at WP:ITNC, blurb nom for such a towering figure shouldn't have been controversial in the first place, and so much discussion shouldn't have been necessary.
Re time, a person dies only once, and breaking news grows old after a day or so. There's no "continuing" category for RDs (unless you're Franco).
ITN itself morphs constantly. An ITN blurb is not forever. Sca (talk) 14:52, 14 April 2015 (UTC)
We should only post quality articles, Grass' article was junk before it was pulled. We do have a continuing category, they are eligible for a week and stay put (unless pulled) for a week. That's ongoing enough for most recent deaths. The Rambling Man (talk) 15:35, 14 April 2015 (UTC)

Speedy Deletion Tags[edit]

Actually, you're incorrect. I can indeed remove Speedy Deletion tags from articles I wrote that I nominated for deletion by completely blanking. Ormr2014 (talk) 22:29, 30 April 2015 (UTC)

You can blank a page you created, but it will still result in it being deleted as doing so is interpreted as an author request to delete. If you do not want to blank the page, you cannot remove a speedy deletion tag from a page you create. 331dot (talk) 22:32, 30 April 2015 (UTC)
It was my intention to completely remove the article as a matter of principle. There are over 30 other articles in the Web Design Companies Category and only a small handful of them actually meet the criteria for inclusion on Wikipedia, yet no one was tagging them with Speedy Deletion requests. My article, despite only having a couple references, was about a company with a 9 year track record of providing services to some of the largest corporations in this country, many of which also have articles on Wikipedia. The reason there were not an abundance of references was because the article was just written and still in development.
In any event, it was my intention to simply delete the article myself, rather than allow some power hungry "Wiki-dictator" to have it deleted... Ormr2014 (talk) 22:47, 30 April 2015 (UTC)
If you choose to overreact and not provide even a statement that you are adding more information to the page, if not the information itself, that is your choice, but it doesn't make me a "wiki-dictator"(thanks for the name calling). If you had done either of those things, I would have gladly removed the tag. As it stood when I saw it, the page said little more than the company existed, which does not merit a page on its own per notability guidelines. There was no indication of further development in progress; I will state again, had you simply contested the deletion and stated more work was underway, I would have removed the tag. Other stuff exists and has no bearing on the existence of any other page. If you feel other pages merit speedy deletion, you are free to do so. 331dot (talk) 23:07, 30 April 2015 (UTC)


Vince Matias: Why shouldn't I remove the deletion notice on the page DZXY-TV? Is it illegal? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Vince Matias (talkcontribs) 09:42, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

@Vince Matias:It is not "illegal", but it is against policy to remove speedy deletion notices from pages you create yourself. Please discuss the speedy deletion tag on the talk page of the article. 331dot (talk) 09:46, 2 May 2015 (UTC)
Vince Matias: Why Can't I Remove The Speedy Deletion On My Page? This is an page created for educational purposes only. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Vince Matias (talkcontribs) 09:52, 2 May 2015 (UTC)
If people could remove speedy deletion tags from articles that they created, it would defeat the purpose of the tag. Again, please discuss the tags on the article talk page. 331dot (talk) 09:54, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

Terms of disparagement[edit]

Our friend Gloucester has declared, in regard to the royal baby, that WP "has no place for such dribble." Sca (talk) 17:25, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

Disappointing, but I'm not surprised unfortunately. 331dot (talk) 20:10, 2 May 2015 (UTC)
Nor am I surprised by what's-his-name's The Great Oz's exchange with you, Aronzak and Formerip. How can this sort of thing continue? Sca (talk) 00:43, 3 May 2015 (UTC) Sca (talk) 15:59, 3 May 2015 (UTC)
If there's things I've written on ITN that have incited personal attacks/incivility then I'm sorry that the discussion isn't approaching a useful conclusion. -- Aronzak (talk) 05:39, 3 May 2015 (UTC)
Aronzak, I don't see any obvious issues with your comments. I think when some feel strongly about something they don't necessarily see that opposing views are legitimately possible. I just try to do the best I can. Others will say what they wish. In the case of the royal birth, there are many even in the UK who have posted agreement with the idea that position in the succession order is relevant; it isn't a bias issue as is claimed. 331dot (talk) 09:06, 3 May 2015 (UTC)

I applaud your restraint in handling TRM's at-times caustic commentary.--WaltCip (talk) 03:46, 4 May 2015 (UTC)

Thank you. I don't claim to always be successful, but I do try to handle things in the best way possible. 331dot (talk) 10:46, 4 May 2015 (UTC)
Applause from me too. I also appreciate the manner in which you handle some of the inane and banal and frankly mindless comments that appear at ITN from a number of editors. The Rambling Man (talk) 10:48, 4 May 2015 (UTC)
