Talkback from Technical 13[edit]

Hello, Bellerophon. You have new messages at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Articles for creation.
Message added 14:01, 15 June 2014 (UTC). You can remove this notice at any time by removing the {{Talkback}} or {{Tb}} template.

Haven't heard back from you on my request for clarification in 5 days... So, just a little reminder. :) — {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 14:01, 15 June 2014 (UTC)

@Technical 13: Hi T13, sorry about that. Been away for a few days. I was asking if the preload could be included in the new message header, rather that the message box. But I can see now that this is not possible. Feel free to disregard. I approve of the addition of a TB link btw, good work. Bellerophon talk to me 08:28, 21 June 2014 (UTC)

Draft:Yun Mu Kwan (karate)[edit]

It's just bare bones facts now. Nothing that's not common knowledge, readily available to anyone searching for info. about "Yun Mu Kwan." If you think THAT'S partisanship I don't know what to say. Yes I stripped out all links but the 1st which seemed pertinent, though it's probably NOT the best source for the material. Note: I have NO affiliation with THAT source or its authors. It was just my laziness in not dropping that one, too, figuring it was inoffensive, given wiki rules. Guess I was wrong! Bottom line, the article as now written contains no new information and nothing that could be controversial from a scholarly standpoint, though I suppose there could be ( probably are) SOME taekwondo adherents who would want to deny the connection of that sport with its Japanese antecedents. I can easily source that claim with any number of published articles. I just didn't have the time when I did the revision. If I get time in future, I'll address, unless your reference to "partisanship" reflects something else,in which case, I don't know what the problem is.

Have you understood nothing anyone has said to you about this draft and how Wikipedia works? You have been repeatedly pointed towards Wikipedia's policy on verifiability (WP:V). It is not enough for you to simply proclaim 'this is all fact and can easily be searched for'; you must demonstrate it in the article. The way you demonstrate it is by citing reliable references in your article, not just one, but several, to adequately verify the assertions made in the article. The references you use must be reliable. Exactly what Wikipedia considers a reliable source is complex and often dependent on the subject. However, commonly, references like published books, widely circulated magazines, national newspapers and journals are a good place to start. Unreliable references are, perennially, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, blogs, many webzines, any source written by the subject or someone (including organisations) closely connected with the subject. I say again, one source is not enough. Many unreliable sources are useless. We are looking for a small number of reliable sources. Bellerophon talk to me 11:02, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
Let's just say I think the "partisanship" characterization silly. I have no interest in either side's view of any of this, only in offering a plain, fact based account of what this is. What I wrote in this last iteration surely demonstrates that at least. As I said in my accompanying explanation (with the submission), I planned to put in source links down the road, when I have more time and can cull through what's available. My thinking was to put a bare bones piece up and let other interested parties contribute as well. If that's not enough at this point then I suppose this will have to wait until I have the time needed or someone else wants to have a go at setting up an article on this subject. Thanks. 108.14.63.215 (talk) 12:48, 29 June 2014 (UTC)

Please adopt me[edit]

Hi, l am a user who joined Wikipedia a few days back. So far, l have created about 4 articles in which ALL of them have beed selected for Speedy deletion. l follow everything that the Help article sites and still, nothing. Please kindly help me if you are not swamped. Regards Ladiepre (talk) 12:14, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

Sorry, but you appear to be blocked for undisclosed paid editing and terms of use violations. I do not support paid editing in any form and therefore cannot adopt you. Bellerophon talk to me 16:35, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
  • (talk page stalker), if you can manage to get unblocked, I suggest reading YFA and then trying to create an article on something you enjoy and aren't getting paid for by going through the WIZARD. — {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 16:59, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

Meticulous RfC closes[edit]

Hi Bellerophon. Thank you for your detailed RfC closes at Talk:List of Bohemian Club members#another RfC (permanent link, ANRFC request) and Talk:5:2 diet#RfC: What should the opening line be? (permanent link, ANRFC request).

A note: If an editor ever reverts one of your closes, and you cannot come to an agreement with that editor, I recommend that you start a closure review at WP:AN. See a list of previous closure reviews at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Closure review archive. I hope you continue your quality work at WP:ANRFC helping editors resolve disputes. Your meticulous closes are very appreciated. Thank you again! Cunard (talk) 01:31, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi Cunard, thanks for your kind words. It's pleasing to see someone actually reads them. I will try to show my hand at requests for closure whenever time allows me. Thanks also for the info about closure review. :) Bellerophon talk to me 16:24, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
You're welcome! :) I read every WP:ANRFC close (but not the associated discussions). Thank you again for your excellent ANRFC work today! Best, Cunard (talk) 05:56, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
@Cunard: (talk page stalker) So I'm not the only one... Face-grin expert.svg Good to know. Armbrust The Homunculus 06:16, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
Nice to hear that you read everything at ANRFC too. ;) Thank you for your devoted work closing discussions and clerking ANRFC, Armbrust! Cunard (talk) 06:31, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Article ISC[edit]

Hi,

I am the author of the article about the Indonesian Surfing Championships, which you proposed to delete, who can I send an email to prove that I have the right to use this information? Thanks,

Informal note[edit]

Hey, I notice that you have HighBeam access and you seem to have a few topicons. That being said, if you are interested, I've created {{Wikipedia:HighBeam/Topicon}}. No reply to this message is necessary (and I won't see it unless you ping me), just wanted to let you know it was available.

Disambiguation link notification for July 13[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Teso College Aloet, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Preparatory school. 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.

Working on TCA edits[edit]

Hello there! I am still working on edits. When I am completed I will submit a request for review. Please give me time to edit the documents to the recommended updates needed.

I would appreciate if you could let me improve the article.

Thanks — Preceding unsigned comment added by Josire12 (talkcontribs) 16:14, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

Josire12, You cannot submit the article for review, it has already been accepted. It is live. The changes you are making are appearing live in Wikipedia every time you save the page. How does the fact you are trying to make improvements prevent you from leaving an edit summary, or explain why you are undoing the constructive changes I have made? Far from improving the article, you are failing to address the fundamental issue — which is that you are treating this article as advertising space for the school. Bellerophon talk to me 16:20, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

We have no intentions to advertise the school, we are working on editing the advertorial language as was indicated to us. Please respectfully allow us to make the edits which were recommended.

Thanks ~~ — Preceding unsigned comment added by Josire12 (talkcontribs) 16:43, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

But you're making edits in the opposite fashion, you have restored "advertorial" text that I removed. Bellerophon talk to me 17:18, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

The Nabi Su article was suddenly deleted - what happened?[edit]

The Nabi Su article was being discussed as an article for deletion. The discussion was on-going, and I was working on improving the article. Today, the article was suddenly deleted by someone who hadn't been in the deletion conversation. What happened? What should I do next? Mary Vaccaro (talk) 03:11, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi Mary Vaccaro. When an article is deleted via a deletion discussion, the discussion normally runs for seven days. In this case the discussion was relisted after the initial 7 day period because the balance of opinion sat at the 'weak delete' level. Relisting a discussion allows some extra time for further opinion to be expressed -- up to an additional 7 days, but in reality only so long as is needed for consensus to become clear. In this case, the last edits to the discussion was my reply to you some days ago. The discussion should normally be closed by an uninvolved administrator; in this case, it was closed by Scottywong who is an administrator and did not participate in the discussion, and therefore uninvolved. This helps to ensure that administrators do not act with bias when closing deletion discussions. I'm sorry that this has not turned out the way you would have liked, but now a consensus has been formed to delete the article you may not recreate it. The crux of the reasoning for the article's deletion was the subject was not notable enough; while you were making constructive edits to the article, no amount of editing can make a non-notable subject notable. You may ask for a review of the deletion decision at Wikipedia:Deletion review, but you will need to have a policy based argument to show why the decision to delete was wrong. Other than that, there is nothing more you can do, except ask for a copy of the article source code to be emailed to you so that you post it online, somewhere other than Wikipedia. Bellerophon talk to me 21:05, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for the explanation. I am requesting the source code. Can you please send me the source code?Mary Vaccaro (talk) 03:52, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
{{admin help}} Could an admin please email the source code for Nabi Su to Mary Vaccaro, as discussed above. It appears that she has email user enabled. Thanks in advance. Bellerophon talk to me 15:55, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

Adoption[edit]

I was wondering if I am still adopted by you, even though both you and I have been somewhat inactive for a time. If so, I'd like to finish my education with you and earn my degree. I believe my current assignment is ready to be graded. Roborule (talk) 19:06, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi Roborule, I'm afraid I've had to close my adoption school for the time being as I just don't have the time anymore. So, I'm afraid we can't go any further with the course. However, I'd be happy to help you out and offer advice/answer questions any time you need. Bellerophon talk to me 21:14, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
