|Welcome to my talk page!
The Chris Kyle issue was a comment attributed to Kyles own book and sources close to him. Ayman had received numerous death threats and hateful rhetoric on his page. This section if his Wiki page is highlight his career achievements-NOT to feed the masses who continue to spew hate. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hokiechicklet (talk • contribs) 23:29, 15 February 2015 (UTC)
- @Hokiechicklet: The article on Ayman Mohyeldin needs to have comprehensive coverage. If there's been a controversy involving him, and if it's been documented in reliable sources, then it needs to be covered in the article—whether it's favourable to him or not. —C.Fred (talk) 23:49, 15 February 2015 (UTC)
- …And it appears that there are at least two reliable sources reporting the same sequence of events. —C.Fred (talk) 23:58, 15 February 2015 (UTC)
The relevance of this controversy is? It seems like CFred just wants to add it to this page to continue the hate being directed at Mr Mohyeldin. Please look at his social media pages to see what he has endured the last few weeks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hokiechicklet (talk • contribs) 01:04, 16 February 2015 (UTC)
- @Hokiechicklet: As I said at AN/I, there is a case for this incident not being relevant to his career. If he gets sacked by MSNBC over it, then it is relevant, but the case may be it's too early to say yet that it is. As I also said, that's a matter for discussion at the article's talk page so we can get a broad consensus. —C.Fred (talk) 01:07, 16 February 2015 (UTC)
- @Hokiechicklet:Just jumping in here. Firstly, I undid your changes for edit warring and blanking without explanation. Secondly Wikipedia is not only for highlighting achievements, it is for any notable information. The information you are attempting to censor has been covered by multiple reliable sources. Even if this information is negative towards the subject of the article, it is true and notable, and has a place in the article. Deunanknute (talk) 01:32, 16 February 2015 (UTC)
I left the crap about Chris Kyke alone and added content. I have been editing this page for over a year when no one else gad interest until this CK debacle. You said the death threats could be added and I added them. You seem to have a personal vendetta against Ayman — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hokiechicklet (talk • contribs) 00:22, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
- @Hokiechicklet: The death threats, like everything else in the article, require citation of a reliable source. You have not provided one. —C.Fred (talk) 00:30, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
Funny how I've been editing the page Ayman Mohyeldin for well over a year, and yet since the Chris Kyle issue came up I'm being lectured every time I add/delete something. No one took an interest in this page prior. What gives? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hokiechicklet (talk • contribs) 22:46, 21 February 2015 (UTC)
- @Hokiechicklet: What happened? The Chris Kyle controversy. A lot of articles will spend years in relative anonymity until some event happens related to the subject of the article. Once the event happens the article starts to get lots more eyes on it—and lots more editors taking an interest in the article and its content.
- Additionally, when an article is edited like that, a lot of new accounts may start editing it. Some of us, myself included, look in a lot on edits made by new accounts. So, when a suspect edit shows up there, we take a look—and we may dig even deeper into the article.
- All things considered, it's not a bad thing for the article, when more editors are involved and working to improve it. —C.Fred (talk) 23:27, 21 February 2015 (UTC)
- @Wgolf: Jashafi24 did finally come back to the page and try to blank it. Since that was the only account with substantive contributions, I went ahead and speedied the article. —C.Fred (talk) 04:31, 16 February 2015 (UTC)
- Thanks. I was wondering what happened there too. Meters (talk) 04:49, 16 February 2015 (UTC)
- I opened the page as I saw there's no page on wikipedia. But then a celebrity(her sister) contacted me to remove the page so I did blanked(I thought this is the only option to delete) that, as I'm still new on wikipedia so I don't know how to delete or post on talk page(as I'm currently learning from Help pages). My apologies and will contact you through talk page for any help. Thanks. (talk) — Preceding undated comment added 06:50, 21 February 2015 (UTC)
Mike Shinoda Wikipedia Page
Hello C.Fred, I'm new to this and I don't mean to be rude, I really don't understand, how aren't YouTube videos of a person speaking what is written in the article reliable? I saw a lot of pages that said "N announced on their Twitter account" and the like. I know that looked like nonsense, but that was no vandalism, all of the information I put there was 100% true and the sources were actual proof. So please explain, why do you say it's unreliable? So that I never break this rule again. Thanks!Panika ts (talk) 17:20, 19 February 2015 (UTC)
- Reply on your talk page. —C.Fred (talk) 17:21, 19 February 2015 (UTC)

Spitalfields Mathematical Society
I wish to contest the speedy deletion of Spitalfields Mathematical Society, which I believe to be notable. Please restore it, in order that I and its creator can continue to work on it. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 16:32, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
- @Pigsonthewing: I've restored it to the Draft namespace; you can continue to work on it at Talk:Spitalfields Mathematical Society. —C.Fred (talk) 16:50, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
- An organization that had been dead for 150 years after merging into another organization sure didn't seem like there was any notability asserted. I suppose I could've just redirected it to the absorbing organization. —C.Fred (talk) 22:25, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
There is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. The thread is User:C.Fred is abusing his editoral powers on Wikipedia to advance his own personal point of view.. Thank you. Sam Walton (talk) 19:09, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
- @Samwalton9: Thanks for the heads-up. I've replied to the AN/I posting. Let me know if you think I need to initiate a sockpuppet investigation against the new account that filed the report. —C.Fred (talk) 19:12, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
I am the School's Custodian of Records. I have the transcripts for former students.
There currently is NO website for students to obtain this information. We need to have a contact point where they can find me.
I need that information back up please.
Thanks, Angela Schill
Then they should be calling the school directly for that information.—C.Fred (talk) 00:09, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
- Oh, that's right, this is the school that closed. Then we come back to a verifiability issue: what published source confirms that you are the custodian of records? —C.Fred (talk) 00:12, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
I have a letter of authority signed by the School before it was closed. I also possess ALL of the remaining School transcripts. I am the only one still active trying to help students who need their records. I've put a mention on my LinkedIn page hoping a keyword search will help. https://www.linkedin.com/in/angelaschill SpeedRacer80286 (talk) 00:17, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
- (talk page stalker) Speed/Angela, even if you are who you say you are and do what you say you do, such contact information is not appropriate content for an encyclopedia article: see WP:NOT#DIRECTORY. You should set up a Facebook or MySpace page for the school, not attempt to piggyback on our encyclopedia article.Wikipedia is not here to serve your cause, however noble it may be. --Orange Mike | Talk 05:34, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
Carolina Munhóz page
Hi C. Fred! I notice that you deleted the talk about the page from Brazilian best-seller writer Carolina Munhóz. By what I read they said that I added only blogs but that is not true. ABOUT THE LINKS: - There is a link about an interview that she gave to Uol - An article about Brazil's last book fair where she sold more than John Green, Cassandra Clare and Veronica Roth. This was by Veja Magazine, Brazil’s biggest magazine and the best-selling weekly newsmagazine outside of the United States, with a circulation of over 1 million. Source: http://www.forbes.com/sites/andersonant - An article about her success on the largest newspaper in Brazil called Folha de São Paulo. This Brazilian newspaper has the highest print and circulation among the national dailies of general interest. - Another link is from Capricho Magazine the main teen magazine from the country naming her one of the top 5 writes to check out. - Another link is from O Globo Journal. Globo is the largest media group in Brazil. Controls, among other businesses, the leading broadcast television network in Brazil, the leading pay-TV programmer in Brazil, as well as Internet content and service provider, music label and magazine publishing companies. Globo also holds a minority interest in each of the leading Brazilian cable television operator and the leading Brazilian satellite direct to home television distributor. http://globoir.globo.com/static/enu/organizacao.asp - There is a link from a major soap opera from Globo where one of the main character talked about her book. - Two American websites talking about why the mega seller writer Paulo Coelho refused to go to Frankfurt Fair and showing her name as one of the motives. - And the list goes on. ABOUT THE AWARDS: - She won a major award in Brazil as the best young writer. In this link you can see her name on the year 2011 - http://www.premiojovem.com.br/#/quem-ganhou. - She just won the American Award "Shorty Award" in the Author category by Vox Populi. http://shortyawards.com/category/7th/author. - Her latest book won book of the year by the second major teen magazine in Brazil, Atrevida. This best-seller author has more than 500 thousand mentions on Google. More than 80 thousand followers on social media. There are two another wikipedia links where her name is mentioned https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sophia_Abrah%C3%A3o and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/O_Reino_das_Vozes_Que_N%C3%A3o_Se_Calam. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Yaramar Barbosa (talk • contribs) 08:39, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
- @Yaramar Barbosa: I deleted Talk:Carolina Munhóz at the same time I deleted the Carolina Munhóz article, and I deleted the article because it was a copyright violation. We can't just take the text from Munhoz's website and copy that to the Wikipedia article.
If the article has been rewritten, then there's no longer a copyright problem—there's just the issue of her notability being addressed by the AfD discussion.—C.Fred (talk) 13:33, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
- The article has not been rewritten—it's still copied wholesale from http://www.carolinamunhoz.com/blog/english/. I didn't delete the article this time; I did blank the bulk of the text. We cannot copy text from other websites; text on Wikipedia must be under a free license, and there is no statement on Munhoz's website to say the text is in the public domain or under Creative Commons license. —C.Fred (talk) 13:42, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
Hi C.Fred, this is Phedbl. I'm totally new to Wikipedia so I have no idea if this message will get through to you. My apologies in advance if I'm messing up. When I made the changes to the Curam entry, I thought I had included an explanation for why I made the changes. I did one for the Minnesota entry and one for the Ontario entry. In both instances I explained that all of the issues mentioned had been resolved and that each customer was now happy with the solution. The Minn Governor wrote a second letter to the IBM CEO praising the solution and the Ontario customer has presented at IBM conferences and serves as a reference. I'm not sure why those explanations didn't show up. Phedbl (talk) 19:40, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
- @Phedbl: A couple of things. First, if the situations were resolved, you should have added the resolution to the bottom of the section, not just delete it. Second, a letter from the governor of Minnesota to IBM cannot be cited as a reliable source—although media coverage of the letter could be. Finally, the citations would need added into the text of the article, not just in the edit summary. —C.Fred (talk) 19:47, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
Hello. I edited the page for Charley Steiner, and I've seen that all my edits were deleted. All of my information came from reliable sources and was factual, so I'm wondering why all my contributions were removed. Can we work together to edit the page for the utmost accuracy? Knobrien (talk) 18:44, 27 February 2015 (UTC)knobrien
- @Knobrien: As I said at the time, my revert was to "Restore references and links; undo major clear-out of article by editor with admitted COI."
- In other words:
- Your edits removed references from the article; articles need references to reliable sources so that we can verify the content.
- Your edits removed internal links to other Wikipedia articles that are part of the navigation system of Wikipedia.
- You removed almost a third of the article.
- You admitted that you were editing at the request of the subject. Wikipedia articles should be neutral; when an editor has a conflict of interest, it can be difficult for that user to keep a neutral point of view in the article.
- Because of your conflict of interest, it is probably better if you do not edit the article directly. Instead, request changes at Talk:Charley Steiner, and other editors will review them. If there is support, an editor who is independent of Steiner will make the change. Make sure that you cite reliable sources in your request—and preferably secondary sources published by agencies that are independent of Steiner. —C.Fred (talk) 01:06, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
- @Rhododendrites: That's why the project is built on collaboration. :) —C.Fred (talk) 01:55, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
