Speedy deletion nomination of Taham[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Taham requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a band or musician, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. Epeefleche (talk) 02:35, 5 May 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for May 7[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Villaflores, Chiapas, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Villa Hidalgo, Chiapas (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.

Wiki Loves Pride 2014[edit]

Hi Carlos. In case you are not aware, there is an upcoming campaign to improve coverage of LGBT-related topics on Wikipedia, culminating with an international edit-a-thon on June 21. See Wiki Loves Pride 2014 for more information. If you are interested, you might consider creating a page for a major city (or cities!) near you, with a list of LGBT-related articles that need to be created or improved. This would be a tremendous help to Wikipedia and coverage of LGBT culture and history. Thanks for your consideration, and please let me know if you have any questions! --Another Believer (Talk) 16:10, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

Mexico[edit]

Thanks for going through the municipalities and adding population data. I created most of them a while back and a lot of them don't even have data yet. I see you haven't worked on Iran for weeks now, how far did you get? You've certainly earned a break from it! I do hope that you'll continue at some point of course. Mexico is an excellent choice anyway.♦ Dr. Blofeld 20:34, 14 May 2014 (UTC)

Please don't give up Iran. You've come this far, it seems a shame to stop now. My worry on this was that you wouldn't complete the task and then in the future people will create them haphazardly and things will be inconsistent and a mess again.♦ Dr. Blofeld 08:32, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

Interwikis[edit]

Hi, I noticed that you added some Farsi interwikis - thank you. Did you know you can add these directly into wikidata, at least in the cases for which there is already a pencil icon at the foot of the menu bar on the left? This is more helpful still, as it works both ways.

Addition of interwiki links[edit]

Wikidata-logo-en.svg

You are receiving this as you have recently added an interwiki link to a page!

Wikidata has been deployed to the English Wikipedia. Wikidata manages interwiki links on a separate project on pages such as this. This means that on Wikipedia articles there is now a language bar on the left hand side of your screen where you can edit and add links rather than adding them into the articles themselves.

If you have any questions regarding Wikidata please use the talk page Wikipedia talk:Wikidata.

Navarrese deputies to Cortes Generales, 1879-1923[edit]

Hi there

I am here not to protest, as you seem to suggest on top of your talk page, I am here to ask for clarification.

BTW, hope you don’t mind if I note that I find your suggestion provocative, impolite and generally incompatible with the spirit of settling disputes in a friendly and conciliatory manner. If I might venture to submit a humble proposal, I would suggest to rephrase your statement, maybe as If I've deleted an article you created and you are here to investigate, please clearly state the name of the article in the header of your note on the bottom of my talkpage. Remember to sign your posts with etc etc.

I have the following questions:

a) You have deleted my entry with no flagging for deletion and with no discussion allowed, so I guess you applied a speedy deletion procedure, approaching this as a most obvious case. However, I can not find a “contest speedy deletion” button, which should normally be left inside the speedy deletion tag. If it was a speedy deletion indeed, how can I find the “contest” button? If it was not a speedy deletion, why there was no flagging and no discussion allowed?

b) The A1 tag description you quote says that this applies only to very short articles. The entry in question contained lots of data, namely a table with 140 cells. Does it count as short article?

c) The A1 tag description says that If any information in the title or on the page, including links, allows an editor, possibly with the aid of a web search, to find further information on the subject in an attempt to expand or edit it, there is enough context that A1 is not appropriate. My entry did contain an indication what the source is, and it also contained a link allowing an editor to find further info. Could you clarify please?

d) The entry is formatted as an annex. I found no information on any wiki policy or annexes (though maybe there is one I failed to find). I created this annex to avoid stuffing another of my articles with data; besides, maybe someone else would like to take advantage of this annex. Annex is usually a raw data piece, and there are many scattered across wiki with no context provided, the related one is for instance elecciones generales. Does the A1 tag applies to annexes as well?

Regards, Dd1495 (talk) 11:03, 17 September 2014 (UTC)


Hello again,

Thanks for a prompt response. It has already occurred to me that I had to wait a month to get a response from wiki admins, so I appreciate your answering the following day very much.

Your response has left me puzzled, and it is for 3 reasons.

  • First, I am puzzled because I am not sure why, when replying to the note I have left on your talkpage, you wrote on my talkpage. The only reason I can think of is that you did this out of courtesy, so that it is easier for me to find it. If this is the case, I am very grateful. However, my impression is that splitting a discussion between two talkpages makes it very difficult to keep track of it, so for my convenience (hope you don't mind) I copy your response here: The article was no more than a transclusion of a file already on Wikipedia. the article added nothing by way of content. Articles need some content, not merely a picture already on the site. Carlossuarez46 (talk) 16:52, 17 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Second, I am puzzled because you answered the question which I did not ask, and you ignored 4 specific questions I did ask. You seem to answer the question “why did you delete my article”, which I did not spell out. I did not, because when deleting, you provided a justification already.
  • Third, I am puzzled because the justification for deletion you provided on my talkpage (“simple transclusion”) is different than your original justification (“no context”). What appears to be your inconsistency might create an impression (120% false, I am sure) that you simply wanted to delete the article does not matter the reason (I would hate to sound confrontational, this is by no means my intention and please accept my apologies if this is the case).

Anyway, since you left my previous request unanswered, I would be grateful if you could clarify points A, B, C and D raised before. I could now add also point E:

Indeed, the article was a transclusion of an image. Is it incompatible with the wiki policy? I thought transclusions are welcome and indeed recommended, instead of copying data from master source. I have created an image titled Deputies Navarre Restoration.JPG with the sole intention to place it as the only part of a wiki article, formatted as an annex. This image contains a table with structured data, a table that a standard wiki table technology can not produce (I think so?), with different colouring keys and patterns, so inserting an image is the only way I found to present the data the right way. Of course, following your deletion I can now add this picture in full-size to an article to which it was intended as an annex, but the disadvantage would be that the others, possibly willing to take advantage of the data only, would have to point to my article. Does this make sense?

friendly regards,--Dd1495 (talk) 17:56, 19 September 2014 (UTC)

@Dd1495: If you want me to respond here, fine.

A. Speedy deletion, correct. B. The cells are not lost, the article was, as you say a simple transclusion, and not more. C. The cells remain - if you want to write an article that's more than a transclusion, I will restore it - will you do that. However you say "I have created an image titled Deputies Navarre Restoration.JPG with the sole intention to place it as the only part of a wiki article, formatted as an annex." see answer to D below. D. We don't have Annexes on the English-language Wikipedia. We have files. Files are to be used to illustrate features in an otherwise stand-alone sourced content article. The article that was deleted was no more than the transclusion of the still-existing file.

I hope that answers your questions.

Carlossuarez46 (talk) 18:04, 19 September 2014 (UTC)

@Dd1495: Another idea: why don't you write the article on Navarrese participation in Spanish Government where you can use the File:Deputies Navarre Restoration.JPG to illustrate the participation. Carlossuarez46 (talk) 18:09, 19 September 2014 (UTC)

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Dear Mr/Mrs Carlossuarez46

Thanks for your prompt answer. I appreciate your speedy responses very much.

Your kind response answers most of my questions, or sort of answers them. I realize you are very busy so I will not investigate details which might seem like splitting hair.

However, since you mentioned it was a speedy deletion, I would still be grateful to learn what happened to the “contest” button.

I would also be grateful for info whether it was “no context” or “simple transclusion” the reason for deletion. You see, I intend to create a wiki article with its only content a table (not an image) with another list of other deputies. If the reason for deletion was “simple transclusion” I guess this new entry would not quality for deletion. If the reason for deletion was “no context” it would qualify for deletion anyway.

Cheers,--Dd1495 (talk) 10:15, 25 September 2014 (UTC)

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Dear Mr/Mrs Carlossuarez46

I appreciate you are quite busy, though given there is a month gone when two of my questions (as above) have been awaiting response, would be grateful for your note.

Article deletions[edit]

Have you been notifying the authors of the articles you have nominated for deletion? It's not required, but it seems like the best practice. Thanks, Altamel (talk) 01:51, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

  • It's worse than that. You filed 51 AfDs in the course of five hundred edits and two days, and it's obvious -- with as little as three minutes between AfDs -- that you failed to make the cursory checks for sources that WP:BEFORE requires BEFORE you file an AfD. It would be the best thing for you to do to pull ALL these nominations, until the point where you have the time to take the required steps before filing an AfD. I'm afraid the alternative to you doing this within a day is to take this to WP:ANI for further action. Ravenswing 09:07, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
  • I have to agree here. The first few nominations I've looked through recently, have been pretty far off the mark. You've been here a long time...what's going on? Sergecross73 msg me 12:55, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
  • @Sergecross73: Pepsiman has little beyond the mktg campaign with which it was linked, no independent coverage. As for the Kominas, I don't think that the coverage is significant. See WP:TRIVIAL coverage of nearly any band. Carlossuarez46 (talk) 18:30, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Have you read the AFD for Pepsiman since creating it? As I pointed out, you actually indirectly linked to an independent third party reliable source in your nomination. It's that sort of thing that is making people question some of these sloppy nominations. Sergecross73 msg me 19:23, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Err: you are completely mistaking WP:TRIVIA for something else -- what that guideline refers to is the use of trivia sections, and has nothing to do with the notability of subjects. I don't doubt that your personal view as to how long a source has to be is what it is; it just bears no resemblance to current consensus on the subject (as reflected in unanimous consensus against you in the articles I cited above), nor to the pertinent footnote of the GNG on the subject, and I strongly urge you to better familiarize yourself with that consensus. Ravenswing 03:54, 19 September 2014 (UTC)

I grimace at the thought of going through any more of your AFD's, however, I've closed several as speedy/snow keeps. I urge you to reconsider some of your nominations or give me the ok to go ahead and speedy close all of them so you may format better nominations and check WP:BEFORE - otherwise, as @Ravenswing: said, this is odd and disruptive behavior and will be taken to AN/I. Dusti*Let's talk!* 01:22, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

  • Yeah, I went through most of them. Not all were so desperately flawed as the ones I cited above: some I agreed with and voted to Delete; others I disagreed with, but wouldn't have found the nominations egregious if they'd been done singly.

    But I am troubled: troubled that someone with so terrible a grasp of some important guidelines nonetheless cited them to support his POV, someone who doesn't scruple to cite guidelines that have nothing to do with his point, someone who doesn't have a grasp of current deletion consensus and someone who filed 51 AfDs in a row without paying any attention to WP:BEFORE ... is an admin, someone with the authority to enforce Wikipedia policies. That's several shades of Not Good. Ravenswing 02:36, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

@Ravenswing: I started to go to AN/I but stopped thinking it might be best for you considering you're the one who combed through the edits and discovered the 51 some odd AFD's - lord knows if there's any addition recent. Dusti*Let's talk!* 02:42, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

Any thoughts on all of this, Carlossuarez46? You haven't really engaged me much in discussion other than very vague claims of "no, its not notable or significant". If you'd acknowledge some of these concerns, it'd probably save everyone some time at ANI. Sergecross73 msg me 13:31, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

I've been busy with my dad after his surgery - so I haven't really been on WP for a few days. If you have issues with the nominations, please comment in the AFD's. That the forum for whether or not articles are kept. I'm here to build an encyclopedia - if you want forum shopping and drama, you know where ANI is, but I'm really too busy to do much responding in the next few days. Carlossuarez46 (talk) 15:04, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

  • Well, it wouldn't be forumshopping in this situation, considering it'd be the first place where they were being discussed collectively. (Outside of your talk page, where you haven't exactly been very receptive. And people have been bringing it up at the individual AFDs, many of which are being closed as keep.) People are more concerned with the overall picture here - how/why you made so many bad nominations, in such a short period, without any remorse or ownership, with having so much experience with Wikipedia.
  • I really am sympathetic to bigger things taking up your time in real life. It happens to me plenty too. And by all means, take care of that first. That's what matters, this is just a hobby. But when it happens to me, I try to be a little more...I don't know...apologetic? Not for "real life responsibilities", but that you you made here mistakes here along the way. Or maybe you still feel you're not wrong? Fine. But you haven't really articulated yourself very well. You've given more of a "Just deal with it" type vibe, which makes it sound like you don't care.
  • It'd just be nice to have a little more insight. When you get the chance, of course. So you don't end up returning to ANI or admin recall discussions. If you can't even do that much, well, I'd have to start siding with the people who are so upset with you right now... Sergecross73 msg me 16:46, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

@Sergecross73: @Ravenswing: I'm back after the worst few weeks of my life. Are we to continue where we were or just reflect that there are higher priorities in life than editing WP, we should be nicer to each other, and we all make mistakes. I'll leave it to you. Carlossuarez46 (talk) 18:19, 6 October 2014 (UTC)

  • This isn't a matter of making mistakes; it's pervasive ignorance of several Wikipedia policies and guidelines. Honestly, I endorse Sergecross73's statements: the degree to which you refuse to address these serious questions is very troubling. It's incumbent on you as an admin to know the rules, to learn the rules, to not make them up as you go along and to be responsive to those who have problems with your actions. If you don't have the time, mental energy or willingness to do so, then do the project a favor and quit as an admin. Seriously. Ravenswing 02:39, 7 October 2014 (UTC)
  • I don't understand what is animating your vehemence. I've addressed your comments - you can choose to ignore my comments. All I can do is promise to do better and forgive your mistakes as well. Carlossuarez46 (talk) 17:23, 7 October 2014 (UTC)
  • What "animates" our concern is that you have not addressed these concerns. I state above that you completely misunderstood WP:TRIVIA, and stated so in the applicable AfDs. You have made no answer to that, either there or here. I listed above AfDs on which you not merely made no attempt to find sources, as WP:BEFORE requires, but some of which you ignored the sources already listed. You have made no answer to that, either there or here. Ravenswing 01:20, 8 October 2014 (UTC)
  • WP:TRIVIAL, a typo. You mentioned 51 Afd's, many of which are already closed, some deleted some kept, others despite 2 weeks no one has piped up with any sources. Carlossuarez46 (talk) 17:02, 8 October 2014 (UTC)
Sorry for the late response, I hadn't noticed being pinged. Anyways, I never intended any harm or Ill-will, I was just trying to get you to talk a bit more, to keep this out of ANI, because of how crazy things can get there. I hope all is well. Sergecross73 msg me 20:49, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Guild of Fine Food[edit]

All I'm doing is high.lighting the psychological, sociological and physiological consequences.

Edmund F. Brennan deletion -- please undelete[edit]

This deletion appears rather clearly inappropriate. US magistrate judges are generally notable under WP:NPOL, and a quick check of the Google cache shows a reasonable stub with an inappropriate sentence tacked on about a third party. Rather than deleting the article entirely, the inappropriate text should have been removed, perhaps RevDel'd. The Big Bad Wolfowitz (aka Hullaballoo) (talk) 19:25, 19 September 2014 (UTC)

CSD[edit]

For things without at least one source? Interesting idea. I'd go with it, but I doubt it would get past the participants at Talk:CSD - especially those who talk a lot but are never actually seen (at least by me) at the CSD operational area, or in patrolling even. It's very like the gentry discussing how the peasants can improve their diet without actually having experienced scratching for a living or knowing what the beggars actually eat anyway. Me, I worked in patrolling edits by recent accounts (not NPP) for three years before getting my mop and going on to delete 38000 pages in three and a half years. My hands are not only dirty, but blood stained. I think some of them have never even deleted a U1 or tagged a G7. Back to your idea, it would have one thing that would upset them - they object to admins 'deciding' on things, making value judgements, etc. No sources is no sources is no sources. As clear cut as a one editor only G7 or a U1. But would you allow Facebook or an own site as the one source? Peridon (talk) 12:48, 24 September 2014 (UTC)

Dispatch News Desk[edit]

You have deleted a page names "Dispatch News Desk" link to the page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dispatch_News_Desk Its a news agency from pakistan and one of the most famous as its the first online news agency which has started working in Pakistan. The legal authorization can be found on their webpage with the Government of Pakistan. They are also into google news from where i found them and added their name in wiki. For more info you can see this link http://www.dnd.com.pk/about/ — Preceding unsigned comment added by 182.189.64.83 (talk) 06:45, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

Every corporation in the US is "registered" with the government and can be found on the state of incorporation's website. Claiming it's on a government website is no more than an a claim that it exists. That it exists does not make it notable. Our WP:GNG does not state that all corporations are inherently notable - articles on non-notable corporations are deleted regularly at WP. Carlossuarez46 (talk) 18:24, 6 October 2014 (UTC)

Deletion: American International Motorcycle Expo (AIMExpo)[edit]

Hello, I am following up regarding the American International Motorcycle Expo page you have marked to deleted. For reference, the page may be found here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_International_Motorcycle_Expo I would greatly appreciate some clarification on why the page should be deleted as I have cited multiple, credidbile and objective/third-party media sources that support the information contained in the listed. Is the request to have the page removed due to a lack of cited articles, the credibility/content of the articles, or something else?

Thank you and I look forward to your feedback. Sroegner (talk) 01:47, 8 October 2014 (UTC)sroegner

Philae[edit]

Strange thing I just ran into at Philae. Ever since your edit more than eight years ago, the following statement has remained in the article:

Bigeh, like Philae, was a holy island; its and rocks are inscribed with the names and titles of Amenhotep III, Rameses the Great, Psammetichus II, Apries, and Amasis II, together with memorials of the later Macedonian and Roman rulers of Egypt.

There seems to be something wrong with "its and rocks" (its what and rocks? Or is it just the rocks?) but I'm not sure what it's actually supposed to say, so I couldn't fix it myself. Sideways713 (talk) 09:15, 25 October 2014 (UTC)

Taham[edit]

Is Taham Rural District a district or it belongs to "Central" district? --Why should I have a User Name? (talk) 10:45, 1 November 2014 (UTC)

Personal question[edit]

Are you from Spain (if I may ask)? Today I saw -regrettably only a part of- a Spanish film which was hilariously funny. It was about General Franco and a "double". I believe I had not laughed this much since Peter Sellers entered the party house. (In fact I had begun laughing already when he lost one shoe trying to enter the place! :-) I don't know either the name of the film (reason for which I am disturbing you) or of the actors, but I understand the leading actors were twins, because I saw two people with the same name at the top of the cast. I would like to ask you if you can tell me the name of this film, as I would like to find it somewhere and watch completely. Thank you and salu2. --Why should I have a User Name?

ISIL[edit]

Hi, regarding your views at categories under discussion, please be aware that ISIL are nothing more than a group. There are several editors that, with whatever motive, are pushing to categorise all these various groups as ISIL and to indicate ISIL presence in a variety of locations across Africa and the middle-ease directly on maps and in any other possible location. Without that category we most likely end up indicating ISIL as being radically expanded, unless you want to be otherwise directly involved to stop that. Gregkaye 13:49, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

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

Hi. 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 (15th most active!), 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 14:56, 4 February 2015 (UTC)

Infobox flags[edit]

Hi there. I have a question about a comment you made way back here in 2012. You wrote: "we could word the guideline to make that noncompliant; nothing will stop any editor from doing anything - but will give the community's imprimatur to sanction a revert. How about, "Human geographic articles - for example settlements and administrative subdivisions - may have flags in infoboxes; however, physical geographic articles - for example, mountains, valleys, rivers, lakes, and swamps - should not. Where a single article covers both human and physical geographic subjects (e.g. Manhattan), the consensus of editors at that article will determine whether flag use in the infobox is preferred or not."" Soon after, it was incorporated into Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Icons, where it remained unchanged until this week.

What did you mean by "where a single article covers both human and physical geographic subjects"? Did you mean an article that was both a place and a unique geographic entity (such as Miami Beach, which is both a peninsula and a city)? Why did you choose Manhattan as an example, but not add "island" to your list of examples of a physical geographic article?

Changes are being proposed to this manual of style, and I'm trying to get some background into the history of this paragraph.

You're good with excel. Any chance you could use this to generate stubs for all of the Corregimientos of Panama? I asked Acorterion to import this from Spanish wiki.♦ Dr. Blofeld 12:51, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Pride![edit]

  • How can you help?
    1.) Create or improve LGBT-related articles and showcase the results of your work here
    2.) Upload photographs or other media related to LGBT culture and history, including pride events, and add images to relevant Wikipedia articles; feel free to create a subpage with a gallery of your images (see examples from last year)
    3.) Contribute to an LGBT-related task force at another Wikimedia project (Wikidata, Wikimedia Commons, Wikivoyage, etc.)

Or, view or update the current list of Tasks. This campaign is supported by the Wikimedia LGBT+ User Group, an officially recognized affiliate of the Wikimedia Foundation. Visit the group's page at Meta-Wiki for more information, or follow Wikimedia LGBT+ on Facebook. Remember, Wiki Loves Pride is about creating and improving LGBT-related content at Wikimedia projects, and content should have a neutral point of view.

Thanks, and happy editing!
