Just wanted to show my support for your tireless contributions to hndis-cleanup, for both you and your alter-ego. The recent criticism is completely unjustified, I have always found your edits to follow WP:MOSDAB scrupulously. Editorial differences will always occur but this should never have gone beyond the pages concerned or your talk page. Keep up the good work! Tassedethe (talk) 08:30, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

Editor of the Week[edit]

Editor of the week barnstar.svg Editor of the Week
Your ongoing efforts to improve the encyclopedia have not gone unnoticed: You have been selected as Editor of the Week, for excellent work in a largely un-rewarded subject area. Thank you for the great contributions! (courtesy of the Wikipedia Editor Retention Project)

User:Northern Antarctica submitted the following nomination for Editor of the Week:

As a 6-year veteran editor with over a 150,000 edits, Boleyn has quietly been creating tons and tons of disambiguation pages. This is an important area of work, but it doesn't generally get much attention, so Boleyn is probably well overdue for a bit of recognition. After all, users who faithfully work to improve the encyclopedia — yet don't get very much of the limelight — are the people that this award was designed for.

Your advice please...[edit]


You are the disambiguation guru. It used to be piped links were discouraged on disambiguations pages. That made sense to me. Is that still what is recommended? HMS Toronto has several piped links. Should I unpipe them?

Thanks! Geo Swan (talk) 20:13, 4 October 2014 (UTC)

Hi, Geo Swan, I hope you're well. Yes, WP:PIPING is still discouraged, so that readers can see the real link and have less chance of ending up at a disambiguation page again by mistake, and can more easily go directly to the right page. On the page you mentioned, some of the links need a blue link on their line (WP:DDD). Best wishes, Boleyn (talk) 20:20, 4 October 2014 (UTC)

Hello Boleyn, I'm curious to know which templates you'd apply on Chandrasekhar. It's currently tagged as hndis, but I'm not sure that's quite right. I believe that one should only be used for people names with matching first and surnames. On this particular one however, the name is being used both as a first and as a surname. Rgds, --Midas02 (talk) 21:05, 13 November 2014 (UTC)

Hi, Midas02. I've admended it to a surname and given name page, it doesn't seem to be for those sharing the same personal name. Best wishes, Boleyn (talk) 21:08, 13 November 2014 (UTC)

About the Cotswolds big cat article[edit]

Hi Boleyn!
I agree that it is akin to a WP:1E article. And that it is also just darn silly: there. are. no. big. cats. at. large. in. the. Cotswolds. (I fully admit that, being a small cat like Smart's Jeoffry, I am a mixture of gravity and waggery, and rather like silly stuff.) I'm leery of contesting the PROD and sending it to AfD - unreliable references from internet forums and blogs might sway the closing admin - admins, those loathsome creatures! - to close it as "no consensus".
The references I used in the article were taken straight from a Google News search for the "Cotswolds big cat" as a search term. There may be more history outside of these, and I'll see if I can find more. Until I can find anything else out, the WP:PROD tag is fine by me.
Peter "loathsome creature + mixture of gravity and waggery" AU aka --Shirt58 (talk) 10:49, 11 December 2014 (UTC)

Boleyn, in your prod rationale for the article, you said you would have merged it if you had found an article on this sort of topic. There are articles on this topic, specifically British big cats and Phantom cat. I think the same story as in the Cotswolds big cat article is mentioned at British big cats#DNA evidence (the last sentence in that section). Perhaps the article should be redirected to that section rather than deleted? Calathan (talk) 16:02, 11 December 2014 (UTC)

Help me in editing the page[edit]

Hi boleyn, As my page GreyCampus seems like an advertisement, I tried editing it according to Wiki notability guidelines. Can you please help me in changing the content so that this page exists in Wikipedia.

Thanks in Advance.

Regards, Suha Emma. Suhaemma (talk) 06:57, 2 January 2015 (UTC)

Hello, Suhaemma. The page won't be deleted on the grounds of being an advert, but of course editors can be influenced by that. I would say first you should go to Talk:GreyCampus and declare your connection with the company, per WP:COI, which is a useful set of guidelines for you to read. The connection is obvious from the way you have edited Wikipedia, and a quick Google search confirms your connection, so best to declare it, so otheres don't think there is any intent to mislead. The promotional language is so prevalent I would struggle to take it out without taking out everything. If you read a couple of articles on other companies, it may help you get into an encyclopaedic mindset. For instance, the first paragraph: GreyCampus is a leading provider of on-demand training that address the unique learning needs of professionals, delivered as online and classroom training. Company aims provide quality training enabling professionals to achieve their certification and career enhancement goals. All companies would aim to do those things, but we need to establish what they actually do, in a neutral way. If they are a 'leading' company, this needs to be backed up with statistics or something similar and a reference. To stay, it needs to be established that the company meets WP:ORG or WP:GNG. If you look through these guidelines and see if GreyCampus meets any of these, that would help you. Best of luck. WP is an encyclopaedia and isn't for the promotion of companies, but it is an interesting project to be part of, and regardless of how it goes with this one article, I hope you choose to stay editing.

PRODs of caste articles[edit]

Hi, I've just seen your PRODs for Bhinder and Lakda. I do not disagree, and I haven't disagreed when I've seen previous requests by you in this area. What I can't figure out - it is late here - is how to second/agree with a PROD. I'm fairly sure that I have seen people do this, and I certainly add weight to your rationale in these two cases.

About your (non)participation in the January 2012 SOPA vote[edit]

Hi Boleyn. I am Piotr Konieczny (User:Piotrus), you may know me as an active content creator (see my userpage), but I am also a professional researcher of Wikipedia. Recently I published a paper (downloadable here) on reasons editors participated in Wikipedia's biggest vote to date (January 2012 WP:SOPA). I am now developing a supplementary paper, which analyzes why many editors did not take part in that vote. Which is where you come in :) You are a highly active Wikipedian (79th), and you were active back during the January 2012 discussion/voting for the SOPA, yet you did not chose to participate in said vote. I'd appreciate it if you could tell me why was that so? For your convenience, I prepared a short survey at meta, which should not take more than a minute of your time. I would dearly appreciate you taking this minute; not only as a Wikipedia researcher but as a fellow content creator and concerned member of the community (I believe your answers may help us eventually improve our policies and thus, the project's governance). PS. If you chose to reply here (on your userpage), please WP:ECHO me. Thank you! --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 01:03, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

Piped links in dabs[edit]

Hi, just a heads up on what I'm doing with the piped links on dab pages.

At WT:AFL, we've started trying to make articles for the most notable (ie most games played) of the 4000 players without articles who've played at the top level. I've done a lot of the planning and sorting, but don't have access to the main offline reference book any more, so I'm mainly doing the "meta" tasks, leaving the article creation to others. So I'm either ahead of the task or following along behind, making sure that our new or about to be created articles have wikiproject tags, hatnotes and incoming links from the team games played list or dab pages. Where I need to add a redlink to a dab page, I've been piping the List of XXXX players article, as I don't think the surprise of seeing a list of team players article, not a team article is that much, and it reads so much better. And when the redlink becomes blue, you just delete the [[List of ... | bit and leave the piped word. Where you have multiple footballers, some with articles and some without, this way also makes them all read the same = consistency.


"When the link is part of the description, rather than the actual entry name, piping can be used more freely. However, the text of the link should still be very similar to the title of the target article, to avoid confusing the reader."

I consider List of Fooian FC players and Fooian to be very similar. I've done this on probably at least 50, if not more, dab pages recently. For most of them, the redlink will be turning blue soon, so the piped descriptor link is only temporary. But on some, where for instance I've added links to 2 or 3 different footballers with the same name, but only 1 or 2 of them might be on our high priority todo list, they may remain for some time. I hope you understand and can accept that this fits the "piping can be used more freely" idea and that consistency of dab descriptors on a single dab page is also a good thing to have. Regards, The-Pope (talk) 12:05, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

My article was proposed for deletion[edit]


You have recently sent me messages notifying me that my article that I have recently created has been proposed and nominated for deletion. I am aware it was facing certain referencing issues, however I have added as many as possible, not to mention the external links. I have read numerous pages on how to improve my page but they did not seem to help me figure out my issue. Would you be able to suggest something specific in order for me to save my article?

Thank you Jogha (talk) 22:27, 4 March 2015 (UTC)

Hello, Jogha, which article are you referring to? Best wishes, Boleyn (talk) 22:28, 4 March 2015 (UTC)

Apologies, forgot to mention it. I am talking about the FITGIRLCODE article. Jogha (talk) 22:29, 4 March 2015 (UTC)

Thanks. It reads as if it is promotional, and it doesn't state why it is WP:NOTABLE; how it meets WP:ORG or WP:GNG. Good luck if you continue to work on it, and please comment at the AfD, Boleyn (talk) 22:48, 4 March 2015 (UTC)

Ethel Everest[edit]

If you check the two links to books I added she does appear to have a certain notability in her own right (equal or greater than some of the other persons with short bio articles).

If you look at the discussion on User talk:TexasAndroid I suggest an alternative possibility which would 'resolve' the matter. Anything along the lines of 'Of GE's ... children... Ethel (dates) had links to LB, EC and Morley College (book refs)' would probably suffice (and the red link in Cons' article pointed in the right direction). Jackiespeel (talk) 22:42, 8 March 2015 (UTC)

I agree, Jackiespeel, please see my comments at Talk:George Everest/Merge proposal: Ethel Everest to here. Best wishes, Boleyn (talk) 07:43, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

Shall we say that it is sometimes easier to write the stub first and then determine whether to develop the material as a full page or as a subsection of another page. Jackiespeel (talk) 17:43, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

Adrian Arancibia[edit]

I just wanted to make sure that I was allowed to edit the page still. I am a writer and the information I posted as a bio has been verified through a link that I placed at the bottom of the page. I would like to make sure that this page is still active and that I am allowed to edit. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:42, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

There has been long-standing consensus since 2012 for this, as these articles don't meet WP:NASTRO or WP:GNG. I can take them individually to AfD however, Boleyn (talk) 11:34, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

That seems like a waste of time. I don't think you'll have a problem redirecting stubs > 2000; you can try to liven up StringTheory11's previous bot request that never got filled, for example. But if you want to try to redirect those <= 2000, please bring it up at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Astronomy first, or at least notify the astronomy project before creating any sort of request.   ~ Tom.Reding (talkcontribsdgaf)  12:22, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

I have already discussed it at Wikiproject Astronomy, Wikiproject Notability and Wikiproject Astronomical Objects, when it was made clear these should be redirected. Boleyn (talk) 12:27, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

Also Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Astronomy/Archive_table_of_asteroids_1 for a lot of other discussion history. PamD 14:33, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

Yep, it's also been at ANI at least once, numerous discussions. I have been redirecting to list those which clearly don't meet WP:NASTRO or WP:GNG and have been tagged for notability for over 3 years. I'm happy to pause on looking at masses of them on my own, but they need to be sorted, and redirecting those which don't meet the guidelines has been long-established as a solution, avoids the time taken up with AfDs and can be undone at the click of a button.

Deletion notifications[edit]

Why are you notifying a bot? --Redrose64 (talk) 13:53, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

(talk page watcher)@Redrose64: Seems logical enough, as the bot created this ... and thousands of others in March 2008 - see here, so presumably its bot-master has an interest in whether they remain or get deleted. PamD 14:23, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Bassilyo[edit]

Good to see I'm not the only one who finds it incomprehensible! And that's after I tried to clean it up. [3] 220 of Borg 16:51, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

AfD: Andenne Bears[edit]

Boleyn, care to reconsider your !vote @ Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Andenne Bears? I think a merge and redirect is a better option than an outright delete -- it's also more likely to get an !majority than an outright delete (and it's also effectively the same thing).

A kitten for you![edit]

Thanks for what you do around here. Your work is noticed and appreciated.

Unit (art collective)[edit]

well I just put this up for a AFD-figured I mention that to you since you put up the first AFD for it! Wgolf (talk) 23:47, 29 March 2015 (UTC)

I have also put tons of other articles that have been tagged since 2008 for xfd and prod if you ever want to check. Wgolf (talk) 19:35, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

That's great, thanks for helping with the backlog. Boleyn (talk) 19:43, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

Welcome-also got some unreferenced pages up as prods now. Wgolf (talk) 21:12, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

Another dab to make sometime![edit]

Paul Cronin, just found this one with a few hat notes. Wgolf (talk) 16:55, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

The article A Cup of Coffee, A Sandwich, and You has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:[edit]

If you're talking about the article <<A Cup of Coffee, A Sandwich, and You>> (with A Sandwich, as opposed to a Sandwich) I have no objection. The article A Sandwich is just a link to the -real- article.

If you're talking about the article that details the song, and provides some real links, I think it should NOT be deleted, even though it's in the "stub" category. It is a notable song, mainly because it was heavily used in the Looney Tunes / Merrie Melodies cartoons. Without this article, the history of the song and why it's used in the cartoons would be lost. Just as the history of the song "Open the door, Richard" is now in jeopardy because it has faded from the public consciousness.
