July 2013[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, your addition of one or more external links to the page Mariela Cingo has been reverted.
Your edit here to Mariela Cingo was reverted by an automated bot that attempts to remove links which are discouraged per our external links guideline. The external link(s) you added or changed ( is/are on my list of links to remove and probably shouldn't be included in Wikipedia. If the external link you inserted or changed was to a blog, forum, free web hosting service, fansite, or similar site (see 'Links to avoid', #11), then please check the information on the external site thoroughly. Note that such sites should probably not be linked to if they contain information that is in violation of the creator's copyright (see Linking to copyrighted works), or they are not written by a recognised, reliable source. Linking to sites that you are involved with is also strongly discouraged (see conflict of interest).
If you were trying to insert an external link that does comply with our policies and guidelines, then please accept my creator's apologies and feel free to undo the bot's revert. However, if the link does not comply with our policies and guidelines, but your edit included other, constructive, changes to the article, feel free to make those changes again without re-adding the link. Please read Wikipedia's external links guideline for more information, and consult my list of frequently-reverted sites. For more information about me, see my FAQ page.

Thanks for your input in Ahmad Ilmi, you are quite right. I have tagged it for speedy. Sam 🎤 16:22, 31 July 2013 (UTC)


Thanks for those four pages you tagged with {{hoax}} today - I have PRODded three of them and put {{db-hoax}} on the footballer. How did you spot them? I wish more people looked sceptically at pages they work on - when an improbable-sounding hoax is detected, the history often shows many people tidying up, correcting spelling etc, without ever saying to themselves "Wait a minute, this sounds odd..." Worse still, I have known a hoax page blanked by an IP with edit summary "This whole page is a fake", but he was reverted as a vandal and the hoax survived another six months.

Keep them coming - I look at CAT:HOAX fairly regularly, and so do others. There is no reason you should not PROD hoaxes yourself, or tag with {{db-hoax}} if it's blatant enough. With a db-tag, it helps the reviewing admin if you put a note of the evidence on the talk page. Regards, JohnCD (talk) 21:27, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

Glad to help! Here's my preferred method for finding hoaxes. When I have a chunk of spare time, I go to CAT:ORPH and skim through a few dozen or so of the pages there for a given month on the list. Most of these pages are legitimate (particularly scientific topics like plant and insect species that naturally generate few inbound links), but all kinds of issues exist with others: hoaxes, copyvio, extremely non-notable material, as well as some pages of merit that have somehow slipped through the cracks and can be de-orphaned quickly. In general, pages that haven't attracted links from anyone else get very few page views and consequently have an above-average rate of evading scrutiny indefinitely. In addition, I also check CAT:DEADEND on occasion - it's the number-one place to find copy/paste problems. (talk) 23:15, 17 August 2014 (UTC)
