Can't vote twice in an AfD[edit]

You !voted twice at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Tim Leffel, which is prohibited. Please refractor one of them into a comment. Chris Troutman (talk) 02:59, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

SORRY!!!!!! Thanks. Refracted the second one, which seems fair. AdventurousMe (talk) 03:01, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

A question[edit]

Hi, I want to ask you a question, out of the discussion about TL. Look at this article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jean_Anderson_%28cookbook_author%29. Why it has a template since 2007 and no one even started a delete query as it happened in the case of TL? It is a matter of luck? Otherwise, I do not understand how they can be more than 200 articles for travel writers.--Ane wiki (talk) 03:56, 2 August 2014 (UTC)

The article you've shown me looks prima facie notable as a food writer: she's got a Pulitzer scholarship, she's got a long list of books, published by big publishers (not self-published!), awards that are recognisable (book awards, not article awards), and a career history that includes editing big, well-known publications, and working as a columnist (not an occasional contributor) for well-known publications. Lots of the sources are primary, but I don't think it'd be hard to find reliable secondary sources for the article. She was marked as a stub, because there was more info to be found, and that was removed in 2013, and I'm guessing she's in the travel writers category as well as food because she has also written on travel. I don't see any reason why someone with those credentials would come up for deletion, TBH, though I can imagine there are people with similar credentials that aren't on Wiki. But, yes, per TL, what comes up for deletion tends to be a matter of luck: my guess would be that out of the 200-odd pages in the category American Travel Writers, all the dead ones are notable, and only a percentage of the living ones are (some may be notable people in other fields who are also tagged as travel writers because they've written a travel book in addition to being (eg) a mountaineer or explorer). I do feel for your predicament here. There are a tonne of people who write their own Wikipedia bios, or get friends/colleagues to do it, edit them blithely for year after year and never come up for deletion. That doesn't mean they aren't candidates for deletion. It means no one's got to them yet. The other problem is that when you have people, like TL, who edit their own page etc, they then kick up a complete stink when it comes to getting the page deleted, so no one really has the time to get to other pages that are equally deserving candidates.

Disambiguation link notification for August 7[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Jill Heinerth, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page National Geographic. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Emily Howell[edit]

I appreciate the copyvio work you did. Let me know if there continues to be copyvio/deletion activity following. It's a short article on a suddenly much more notable subject [see viral youtube Humans Need Not Apply -- wiki won't allow direct link] and no longer a copyvio imo. --Nemonoman (talk) 18:06, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the kind words, [User:Nemonoman|Nemonoman]] - much appreciated! It looks like a fairly uncontroversial keep now - I'd be amazed if an admin deleted it. But I'll keep an eye on the discussion and if people do challenge it further. I don't think it's a copyvio any longer either, but I'm not sure I've moved it far enough along to personally remove the copyvio tag - if you feel like removing it, though, as a different editor, I think that would be fair and within bounds... Also, if it's now notable, hopefully others with more expertise will come along and improve it. AdventurousMe (talk) 03:55, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

Bradfords Group[edit]

I noticed your interest in the discussion of the deletion of the entry for the Bradfords Group. Interestingly, the majority of content and the argument to retain this thinly-veiled advertisement is Richard Poole, a professional marketeer (Richard Poole Associates) and one-time colleague of CEO Mark Eburne from their time together at Wolseley UK PLC. HE seemed to duck your direct question about relationship to the subject matter - I wonder why...86.167.199.186 (talk) 20:36, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

Interesting. I don't doubt you in the slightest - it seemed obvious to me that he had a conflict of interest. What I'd propose you do is create an account, and then flag the page for COI editing, providing details on the talk page. I'll add the page to my watch list and keep an eye on what transpires...

Controversy[edit]

Hello why did you delete controversy? [1] It was in investigation report. Controversy heading should have conclusion of report. You did not explain :( ---TheSawTooth (talk) 21:07, 28 November 2014 (UTC)

I cut it back because it was way too long and most of the information was irrelevant. You could amend, if you wished, to add "although in one instance investigators found that it was the client's responsibility to delete the data not ERA's." You'll then need to look at the description of what ERA does, which currently implies that part of their job for all clients is to securely wipe data, although this investigation found that in this instance it wasn't. Good luck - and do try and keep it short! AdventurousMe (talk) 07:49, 29 November 2014 (UTC)
Ok please try to keep the data safe. I am making amend. Thank you. ---TheSawTooth (talk) 19:29, 29 November 2014 (UTC)

ERA advert tag[edit]

[2] They have put advert tag on page did we write it like advert? You corrected everything I did. How can advert tag have consensus? ---TheSawTooth (talk) 20:03, 9 December 2014 (UTC)

I've not been on Wiki for a while - super-busy over Christmas. Let me take a look. There's other things that I would have taken out.... AdventurousMe (talk) 13:32, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
Ok thank you for taking time from your Christmas activity. It is deleted or kept is concern of AFD editors but I am really disagreed on nikthestunned one line revision and new advert promo tag. ---TheSawTooth (talk) 16:39, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
