Triva section at Michelle Malkin[edit]

Hi. Can I suggest you take a closer look at The five pillars of Wikipedia? Wikipedia's rules explicitly forbid us from putting our opinions into articles. Instead, we should report what other people have stated, and even then only people who count as Reliable Sources. That trivia section did not fit in with the rules, and the editors who deleted it were quite right to do so.

Another important policy is WP:BLP.

I know that these rules can be a little quite tricky, but it's important for all of us to work at understanding and following them. Cheers, CWC 03:11, 13 July 2007 (UTC)

Sega TeraDrive edit[edit]

I have noticed you have removed content from Sega TeraDrive describing such content as "questionable" and "obsolete". The fact is, the processor used was obsolete, as it was an Intel 80286 released in 1982, and the teradrive was released in 1991, 9 years later; a gap of 9 years certainly makes a processor obsolete. Granted, maybe not every component was obsolete as the text may have suggested to some, but it was far from being POV, which is evident by the factual release dates of the hardware. Bungle (talkcontribs) 18:55, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

Who says that a gap of 9 years makes a processor "obsolete"? I'm sure there are many examples of processors being sold in new products 9 years after their introduction. Regardless, the whole sentence is rather PoV to state almost as fact that that was the main reason it didn't do very well... again especially as it's a questionable PoV to have to begin with.

Put another way, what I'm trying to say is that PoV is bad, but if you need to put PoV at least make it "right" PoV and not one that is open to differences in opinion. :P Anonywiki (talk) 21:34, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

Ok, I respect your views and I understand why you have that particular view. I am not going to readd the sentence just because I disagree, but I want to at least accept differences of opinion. When the machine was released, there had already been another 2 processors of that variant released, thus although the processor used was perfectly fine and in working order, the fact there had been 2 newer ones on the market, coupled with the one used being released long ago, it does make it obsolete, regardless of whether it was still in fact being sold or not. Now, you could argue that last sentence there is my POV; maybe it is, maybe it isn't - maybe that is generally accepted, maybe it isn't. Essentially though, I understand your point that POV can be interpreted as such by someone but as actual "way it is" by another. It's only for this reason why I am not rushing to readd the deleted content you removed. Regards! Bungle (talkcontribs) —Preceding comment was added at 13:07, 12 January 2008 (UTC)

Recent edits[edit]

Hi. A couple of your recent edits have been reverted. On Eugenics, I myself reverted five of your edits, as they were completely original research, which is not allowed on Wikipedia, even if you put a {{fact}} template on it. On Psychiatry, someone else reverted your addition that it is a pseudoscience. No reason was given for the reversion, but I would have done so myself again under the original research line. It may be a pseudoscience (I won't take a stand on that right now), but without proper sources, it comes across as just your opinion. Just a heads-up in case you actually have reliable sources so that you could recreate the reverted additions.

Please check existing sources before making unfounded claims.[edit]

In your edit to Orangutan, you changed a number from 65% to 90% with the edit summary "I'm next to positive it's 90%". The cited source, [1], says "They eat a wide variety of plant species but are mainly frugivores 61% of their diet). They have been recorded eating buds, open flowers, young leaves, bark, sap, vines, orchids, reed roots, bird eggs, spider webs, termites, caterpillars, ants, fungi, honey, and other various plant parts (Rijksen 1978; Galdikas 1988)."

Unfounded? I have it on better authority that Orangutans eat 90%+, ranges given seem to be from 65%-90%+.

Might I suggest that it depends on type of Orangutan, location, methods used to observe and also because of Humans tearing up the environment and leaving many Orangutans starving (whereby they would eat vastly less fruit percentage-wise).

Fruit is the food of choice of all primates. I daresay Orangutans would eat 100% fruit if they could. But I will leave it just because that's the source already there. Anonywiki (talk) 19:20, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Vanessa Arteaga[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Vanessa Arteaga requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article, which appears to be about a real person, individual animal(s), an organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content, does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable. If this is the first page that you have created, then you should read the guide to writing your first article.

If you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the article (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article 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 article that would confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Sebquantic (talk) 05:04, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

Exploitation films[edit]

I removed your "weasel word" tag from the "Exploitation film" page. You only tagged one specific example, and I edited it. You may want to take a look back at it to see if there is still anything objectionable. Personally, I thought that tag was a bit much; it appeared to be more of a careless wording than a deliberate attempt to obfuscate. There were grammar errors in that sentence far more objectionable than the choice of the words "could be", which were actually appropriate in the context.

BTW, I saw your note about the article being full of original research, and I don't believe that's the case. I believe that the original author did research it, and provided a bibliography, but didn't provide specific citations. The problem with this article is the way that other readers keep piling on, adding trivial bits and pieces, and turning it into a glorified list. Maybe the article needs to be frozen from editing by users who aren't logged in. I don't think the original author is actively editing it. Dementia13 (talk) 04:15, 1 July 2010 (UTC)

ever heard of candles and fire?[edit]

Yup. But fire, including candles and oil lamps, give off predominantly yellow/orange/red light, not blue like daylight does. - Hordaland (talk) 18:00, 4 July 2010 (UTC)

Yes, I know that. And incandescent/fluorescent lamps also give off predominantly yellow/orange/red light, not blue like daylight does, rendering your point completely useless. The artificial light we have now is practically the exact same as the artificial light we had back then from candles and fires, which is not very surprising since they both rely on heat. It is different to sunlight that has many more colours because of all of the different wavelengths we receive from it. Anonywiki (talk) 13:58, 5 July 2010 (UTC)

Hi John. I don't think there are any sources for that word anyway. You're obviously not from Ireland yourself or at least not from Cork or you'd know it yourself. I think it's sad that the old ways of speaking are being drowned out by the new Americanized ways of speaking, so please don't try to "academize" how the old people did and do speak still, or whatever it is you are doing... I don't know. I have no idea why you have any suspicions over it, you can ask anyone who has ever heard it what it means, without having an actual clue yourself what you're talking about.

John, I dispute that it's original research because I didn't research it myself. Do you see citations for this word or all of the other words? Like it or not, much of Wikipedia is full of things without citations, a lot of the most useful information is without citations. Just because something doesn't have citations doesn't automatically make it original research. If you'll remember back, Wikipedia actually began without having any citations at all. Anonywiki (talk) 18:19, 27 September 2010 (UTC)

Despite repeated warnings above, you appear to have persisted in the use of personal attacks against other editors (see [2] and [3] for examples of inappropriate edits).

Request reason:

I wish to be unblocked because I did not produce any original research. I agree that the article needs citations and would be willing to add that in. Ideally all of Wikipedia would have citations for everything, however that is not always practical or possible. I believe I have been unfairly targetted and singled out as a person to annoy and get into an edit war with by this "John", when half of Wikipedia (the most interesting half), is made of things that are known by lots of people as fact but have not yet got citations for them. This user annoyed me by informing me that I was wrong, when I was not wrong, when it was he himself who was wrong, totally misinformed and clueless as to what he was doing. John would be allowed to delete a huge fraction of Wikipedia if had his way, and perhaps I will go and delete every single thing I see on Wikipedia that doesn't have sources and say that it was going by your guidelines. I don't know whatever irked John about my edits above any other edits he saw on Wikipedia, maybe I was just picked randomly, but I am seriously put out by it and believe Wikipedia should try to ensure people who waste others' time on Wikipedia are not allowed to help block edits and have others call them "inappropriate" when they are not inappropriate, the so-called "personal attack" is a separate issue.

Request reason:

I believe I should be unblocked because User: John removed the entirity of my entries, which were all correct, and it was commented (probably by User: John himself) that ALL UNSOURCED MATERIAL WOULD BE "REMOVED ON SIGHT" in the lexicons section. I therefore went ahead and removed all of the unsourced material in the lexicons section. I'm a bit surprised to see that User: John is an administrator, I made nothing but a few helpful edits to the page and he came at me saying that I was not allowed to add perfectly reasonable unsourced material that I know for a FACT while others were to the exact same section, and things such as "derives from sure" that they do not know as a fact and that I have often wondered if they were myths.

Decline reason:

The factual accuracy of your previous edits and additions, or lack thereof, is ultimately tangential (Also: "The threshold for adding content to an article on Wikipedia is verifiability, not truth."). You have been blocked, as best I can observe (not trying to put words into others' mouths) for mass removal of content made as a retaliatory gesture. This intention is made abundantly obvious by your edit summaries. Please read WP:POINT, in particular the fourth primary bullet point. - Vianello (Talk) 21:47, 1 October 2010 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first and then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page for as long as you are blocked.

Instead of reviewing this unblock request, I am taking ownership of this block. That John was the admin that blocked you has created distracting issues, so this removes them. This means that I am now the administrator that blocked you, and I am responsible for this block.

First off, we have some common ground. I do not think John handled the initial issues at Hiberno-English in the best way possible. It would have been better to add {{fact}} tags to your insertions and then raise the issue on the article talk page, where it might have gotten wider input. It would have been better to explain why it was original research. I am not saying John did this the wrong way, but that he could have done it much better. So you're starting from a more sympathetic position. But your actions since then made the situation worse. First, you called John a "clown and a troll" [4] [5] and left this thread on his talk page. You seem to dispute [6] whether these were personal attacks. Regardless of whether they were, they were certainly not contributing to a collegial editing environment. So you got blocked for those. Your first edits after that block were to remove unsourced content. That's fine on its own as an editorial decision. But your edit summaries make clear that the primary reason was not an editorial decision, but to get even with another editor: [7] [8]. People ordinarily edit Wikipedia to improve it. When people edit it to continue and exacerbate conflicts, then it is right to prevent them from editing the site. Apart from the personal attacks, one week is steep, but when coupled with the fact that this was the continuation of a prior dispute, one week is not inappropriate.--Chaser (talk) 01:55, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

Request reason:

Point 4 of the examples reads as follow:

# If you think someone unjustifiably removed "unsourced" content... * do find a source for it, make the referencing clear if it was already present, or explain why the content in question shouldn't require a cited source * do not remove all apparently unsourced content on the page

I did explain to him why it didn't require a cited source. I made a number of edits and put time into making them. However User: John unrelentingly and indiscriminately removed all of the edits I made simply because I made them. He would not discuss his deletion of my edits, he didn't explain why my edits were inferior to other ones, he would not even allow some of my edits and remove others as he pleased. To me it seems like he is using Wikipedia and his administrator privileges as a hobby horse, telling other people they are "wrong" when it is he himself who is incorrect. Anonywiki (talk) 22:36, 1 October 2010 (UTC)

That's all fine, even if John is misbehaving, that does not address your behavior.

Your request to be unblocked has been granted for the following reason(s):

I think this block has served its purpose. Given John's (weak) endorsement of the unblock request, I am comfortable unblocking.

Request handled by: Chaser (talk)

Unblocking administrator: Please check for active autoblocks on this user after accepting the unblock request.

Comment from original blocking admin

I wish to apologize to Anonywiki for the way I handled this. I was wrong to block this user as I was previously involved in what could be considered an editorial dispute with them. My rationale at the time was that these last edits (removing large parts of the article) were akin to vandalism as well as an absolute classic breach of WP:POINT. Nevertheless I should have let someone else handle the block, to avoid even the appearance of impropriety. Having said all that, I still believe the block was an appropriate one given the behavior, and this has been endorsed by Vianello, Chaser and Jayron32 above. Anonywiki seems to indicate an intention to handle things differently though in his latest unblock request above, which is great, and I therefore weakly endorse the unblock request, though of course Chaser is now the blocking admin and may also have a view. Hope that helps. --John (talk) 06:32, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

Moving forward[edit]

Moving forward, my suggestion to everyone is to add {{fact}} tags to anything in the article that does not have sources and that you do not recognize as Hiberno-English. As needed, such unsourced material can be discussed on talk, or removed after a reasonable period (say, a month) during which no sources are added. If everyone agrees that something in the article is Hiberno-English, then there's no reason that I can see to remove it from the article. Just leaving it with {{fact}} tags is probably the best option. Can we agree to do this or something similar on this article in the future? John, would you mind modifying that note accordingly?--Chaser (talk) 14:00, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

Anonywiki, one thing you could do if you still with the material you wanted to include is to re-add that material, with fact tags, and then start a thread on the talk page so that you and John can discuss it.--Chaser (talk) 16:00, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

Please do not attack other editors, as you did at User talk:Sergecross73. Comment on content, not on contributors. Personal attacks damage the community and deter users. Please stay cool and keep this in mind while editing. Thank you. While you may have issues with his vote, name-calling is not the best way to go about debating him on them. -- McDoobAU93 22:20, 12 December 2011 (UTC)

Warning #2 on this- Stop with the personal attacks. You've done it again, right here. One more and I'm getting an admin involved. Final warning. Sergecross73 msg me 16:31, 13 December 2011 (UTC)

Please try to take what I said as constructive criticism and do not comment on my user page again. Anonywiki (talk) 16:40, 13 December 2011 (UTC)

Calling someone "daft" and suggesting they not to edit is hardly constructive. This will gladly be my last post on your talk page though, unless I need to notify you of going to ANI or anything. Sergecross73 msg me 16:42, 13 December 2011 (UTC)

Anton Singov AFD/ incivility[edit]

I'm sorry you're upset with the result of that AFD. However, there's a number of issues here, beyond what you addressed on my talk page, the most important being the simple fact that this person simply did not have sufficient reliable sources to support it. Beyond that, there's all sorts of questions here, such as

  • Why are you complaining now? This happened 1 and a half months ago.
  • Why didn't you participate while it was active?
  • Why is your anger directed solely at me? I didn't nominate it, the decision was unanimous in support of deletion, and the Admin was the one who did the actual deletion.

Now, if you want civil discussion, I'll listen, but the second it degrades into insults again, you'll be ignored. Sergecross73 msg me 02:43, 13 December 2011 (UTC)

the most important being the simple fact that this person simply did not have sufficient reliable sources to support it.

===> I dispute this. There are plenty of sites including BBC if you bothered looking at the sources and video evidence of such events taking place. id Software and Intel (Intel Extreme Masters) are by any measure completely mainstream sources of information. Search youtube for "Cooller" and you'll see tons of videos, interviews, etc., really search there. The games and players to be on international satellite tv on Giga also. Just because the game itself does not seem mainstream to you does not mean it's not notable. The game still has a huge following with tens of thousands of interested people. Billiards may not seem to have much of a following, however try and pick on one of their pages and see the reaction you get to try to take it down.

The standard is generally that if they are professional that they get a page. Many other players such as Shane Hendrixson have pages. I refer you to Generally acceptable standards

Sports figures are presumed notable (except as noted within a specific section) if they:

1. have participated in a major international amateur or professional competition at the highest level such as the Olympics. 2. meet any of the qualifications in one of the sports specific sections below.

Even the most unimportant professional football player in the world is considered notable enough.

It should also be noted that notability does not dwindle with time. Videogames are still in a development stage. Quake 3 Arena/Quake Live is over 12 years old now and is still highly popular, but years ago it was the most popular videogame of all. People do not become "less notable" over time. Wikipedia:Notability#Notability_is_not_temporary

Notability is not temporary: once a topic has been the subject of "significant coverage" in accordance with the general notability guideline, it does not need to have ongoing coverage.

As for your other questions:

Why are you complaining now? This happened 1 and a half months ago. Why didn't you participate while it was active?

Because I don't check his (or anyone's) page every day.

*Why is your anger directed solely at me? I didn't nominate it, the decision was unanimous in support of deletion, and the Admin was the one who did the actual deletion.

Because your vote comment seemed so dismissive and derogatory. One of the links there was from the BBC, which is obviously mainstream, and it seemed like you were voting and being sarcastic without any idea what you were talking about. If I went over the top I apologize.

Response[edit]

  • There are plenty of sites including BBC if you bothered looking at the sources and video evidence of such events taking place. id Software and Intel (Intel Extreme Masters) are by any measure completely mainstream sources of information. Search youtube for "Cooller" and you'll see tons of videos, interviews, etc., really search there. The games and players to be on international satellite tv on Giga also. **I really can't make a judgement on any of that unless you provide some actual links to actual sources. Keep in mind that youtube is generally not accepted to be a reliable source, it falls into WP:SPS and WP:COPYVIO problems.
  • The game still has a huge following with tens of thousands of interested people. Billiards may not seem to have much of a following, however try and pick on one of their pages and see the reaction you get to try to take it down.
    • This is irrelevent to whether or not his particular person meets notability requirements for his own article. That would be relevent to whether or not electronic sports has an article. I'm not contesting that.
  • The standard is generally that if they are professional that they get a page. Many other players such as Shane Hendrixson have pages.
    • WP:OTHERSTUFFEXISTS. Enough sources were found for him, so he survived his AFD. For a couple weeks there, for every 1 of him, another 10 had been deleted due to failing to establish notability. A different user went through and nominated a ton of them for deletion.
  • Sports figures are presumed notable (except as noted within a specific section) if they:

1. have participated in a major international amateur or professional competition at the highest level such as the Olympics. 2. meet any of the qualifications in one of the sports specific sections below.

    • I don't remember the specifics, but a discussion was started somewhere, like the notability page for sports or athletes, and consensus was that esports players didn't qualify to these standards. You'll have to look it up yourself, but it happened. Another one of those things that wasn't my ultimate decision or anything.
  • People do not become "less notable" over time.
    • I agree. The argument was that he was never notable, and the article was just never nominated or noticed before.

Above all, lets say I'm wrong on every account.If you're so worked up about all this, rather than non-constructively going about insulting people way after the fact, focus your energy establishing clearer standards for notability for esports, or go recreate a better sourced version of the article. I don't think it wold be this tremendous task, I don't recall it being very long or detailed to begin with. Sergecross73 msg me 14:14, 13 December 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for that link. I notice that most of the people supporting the lack of consensus seemed to be more against esports being considered a sport, while the argument is not that it should be a sport but rather than it inherit the notability requirements from the article for sports people. People talking about athletic/stamina abilities conveniently forget about things that are obviously regarded as sports like darts or snooker do not have a great athletic element to them either, and many have even pushed for chess to qualify as a sport. As previously stated, I believe these players meet the general notability requirements anyway. Anonywiki (talk) 16:36, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
That's a great argument. But there's no consensus for that line of thinking yet with e-sports. Work on gathering consensus, then you could enforce it. Sergecross73 msg me 16:41, 13 December 2011 (UTC)

DRV regarding Anton Singov[edit]

Please note that I have closed your request for a Deletion Review of this article (as per Wikipedia:Deletion review/Log/2011 December 13). I've done this for several reasons. First, as you note, you did not discuss the closure of the previous DRV with the closing admin. I understand that this was due to a miscommunication related to their Administrator Review, but nonetheless you need to bring your concerns to that admin first. Your rationale does not highlight any flaws in the process, nor does it indicate that the consensus found at the AFD was in error. Rather, you point out reasons that the subject should be considered notable, which is not what DRV is for. DRV is not a second AFD; rather, it evaluates the first AFD. Since there was no claim that the AFD itself was flawed, there is nothing to review.

That said, the core concern about this article was that there are no sources that indicate notability as our rules define it - in this case, reliable sources talking about the subject himself. Sources that just mention him are not relevant for this requirement. If you have such sources, I'd suggest posting them in a list and then contacting the closing admin to discuss the matter. If your concerns are with the notability guideline itself, you'll want to discuss it at the relevant talk page (Wikipedia_talk:Notability_(sports), likely).

Disambiguation link notification for March 19[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited The Moscow Times, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Western (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). 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.

Reason why Natalia's article doesn't have an image of her[edit]

It's due to copyright. The footage of the Youtube video are all owned AN news, which Wikipedia has not obtained the permission to use it. We have obtained permission however for the fan art. You are welcome to be bold and attempt to require these rights/add an image of her to the article. Thanks. Ging287 (talk) 00:07, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

May 2014[edit]

Please stop your disruptive editing, as you did at Vitamin C megadosage. Your edits have been reverted or removed.

Do not continue to make edits that appear disruptive until the dispute is resolved through consensus. Continuing to edit disruptively may result in your being blocked from editing. Reverting and completely ignoring WP:BRD is not the way to go here. While I have not reverted this time, your lack of a summary for your revert and lack of conversation at the talk page does not bode well for a constructive conversation. Failure to discuss this will force me to escalate to the appropriate notice board. Daffydavid (talk) 03:29, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

BTW, you are actually at WP:3RR but I haven't reported you for this. --Daffydavid (talk) 03:43, 25 May 2014 (UTC)
