I received a note that my article on David Jones was rejected. I wanted to try to improve it to meet the editorial guidelines but it has been removed. How do I get it back so I can continue improving it?

Rob Keyloch[edit]

Many thanks for your suggestions (decliner=Cerebellum|ts=20121108113636|u=193.60.60.79) that I implement inline citations so that reader can tell where information comes from. I have also kept in mind WP:42 and included external and verifieable references. Best Wishes, J

Independent Collectors[edit]

Hello, I hope you can help me. You just approved my article on Independent Collectors, but now it is already up for deletion. And I am unable to improve my article as my account has been blocked. (Hence me writing this without being logged in) I think I misunderstood the guidelines when choosing my username but now that I do understand I cant change it anymore. I am a bit at a loss here. Can you help? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 178.19.208.178 (talk) 13:19, 7 November 2012 (UTC)

Chris van Ouwerkerk submission[edit]

Thank you very much again for the encouragement and advice. I have updated the submission and am now unsure how to resubmit it for review. I have added to the figures notability and increased the number of sources. If you can advise on going forward from here it would be much appreciated!

HeavyWeight Yoga article submission[edit]

Your message declining this article states that "Encyclopedia articles need to be written from a neutral point of view, and should refer to a range of independent, reliable, published sources, not just to materials produced by the creator of the subject being discussed. This is important so that the article can meet Wikipedia's verifiability policy and the notability of the subject can be established."

Hi, I've given the article a thorough rewrite to bring it into line with encyclopedic language, plus I've removed explict references to the materials whose source is the creator of the HeavyWeight practice. Also, I've been working on summarizing the story of the founder's training. Thanks so much for your guidance on this. Let me know how it's looking this time around.

Followup RFC to WP:RFC/AAT now in community feedback phase[edit]

Hello. As a participant in Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Abortion article titles, you may wish to register an opinion on its followup RFC, Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Abortion advocacy movement coverage, which is now in its community feedback phase. Please note that WP:RFC/AAMC is not simply a repeat of WP:RFC/AAT, and is attempting to achieve better results by asking a more narrowly-focused, policy-based question of the community. Assumptions based on the previous RFC should be discarded before participation, particularly the assumption that Wikipedia has or inherently needs to have articles covering generalized perspective on each side of abortion advocacy, and that what we are trying to do is come up with labels for that. Thanks! —chaos5023 20:26, 24 October 2012 (UTC)

The article on the J. Manley Robbins Trail[edit]

Hi. I saw you recently declined the article I wrote on the J. Manley Robbins Trail for its lack of notability. I agree that the article's notability is not too well established. However, I did write in the article that it was potentially the oldest rail-trail in America. Should this count for something with regards to the notability? Perhaps instead of having it deleted, there would be some way to improve it? Thanks. King jakob c (talk) 20:53, 26 October 2012 (UTC)

I saw your counter-proposal to creating an article on the trail. That sounds good to me. King jakob c (talk) 14:23, 27 October 2012 (UTC)

A Thank You Message[edit]

Thanks for your work with The New New Deal, supporting its move from 'Articles For Creation' to the site proper. It's my first article that I've made myself related to this user account.

I'd post a kitten image or something, but... ah... anyways, keep up the good work! CoffeeWithMarkets (talk) 22:03, 26 October 2012 (UTC)

Another thank you message[edit]

Hi Cerebellum, more thanks to you - this time for your help and advice on my Bernadette Davis article. I do hope to add to it in the future, as I find more info / more sources become available, and thanks for pointing me to the grading system page. By the way, do you know if it's possible to re-name the page, e.g. from Bernadette Davis to Bernadette Davis (Writer)? PaukiPKK (talk) 09:52, 1 November 2012 (UTC)PaukiPKK

Hi Cerebellum - re your message to me about the page change: OK, I'll leave it as it is. I had noticed there was another Bernadette Davis, a feminist/blogger/editor [her words!] living in the USA, so I thought it may be worth distinguishing them - but now this Bernadette has got there first, the other one will have to differentiate - if they ever become notable! PaukiPKK (talk) 11:57, 1 November 2012 (UTC)PaukiPKK

Hi again Cerebellum - I was just adding some more quotes and references to the page on Bernadette Davis, from reviews about the show Some Girls after its first episode aired - and I thought: "Should I be creating a page for Some Girls itself and then have these reviews and quotes on that page?" (I thought the quotes were apt for Bernadette's page originally as they stated that the writing was original and unusual, but then now that I look at it, it looks like, as they're about the show more than Bernadette, that perhaps the show itself should have a page of its own.) PK. PaukiPKK (talk) 13:28, 8 November 2012 (UTC)PaukiPKK

Hi CB, had a look at the Infobox thing - a good idea, though it's certainly a test of whether you can follow rules, sorry protocols! - though I might wait till there's a bit more info available, as you suggested - thanks for the idea! PK. PaukiPKK (talk) 22:10, 9 November 2012 (UTC)PaukiPKK.

feindura article submission[edit]

hi, thanks for reviewing my submission. currently i cant find more sources which talk about feindura, but i am sure they exist and more will come soon. so my question is, how long does the submission article stay, or will it be deleted? feindura exists since 2010 and its one of the few flat file cms out there. Almost all other cms have also an wikipedia article, so i assume feindura deserves one too :) If more sources will come up, i will add them to the refs. thanks in advance. frozeman (talk) 15:40, 29 October 2012 (UTC)

"Regarding Justin C. Hamilton" I just noticed that the (Basketball) at the end of my title ( Justin C. Hamlilton (Basketball) Has been removed. I dont understnad why. There are other Justin Hamiltons that play so I put his middle intial to differenitate him from them but with out the Basketball, his name doesnt come up under the wiki search. You have to put the C. for his middle name. Is there any way to get it back on there? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Iknowball (talkcontribs) 08:07, 30 October 2012 (UTC)

Just a note, I moved both Justin Hamilon pages to fit existing basketball convention: Justin Hamilton (basketball, born 1980) and Justin Hamilton (basketball, born 1990) Rikster2 (talk) 21:05, 30 October 2012 (UTC)

Wealth Lab article submission[edit]

After you declined my article, I went back and added numerous reliable sources as you suggested. I hope you could take another look and if you see anything that stands out as a deal breaker that you would let me know ASAP and I´ll fix it. The subject should not suffer because I happen to be a poor editor. I´m quite confident that once this article is published that it fill up with more quality content fast as I have no doubt that many Wealth Lab users also dabble in Wikipedia as I do. I find it easy to edit pre-existing articles and make them better, but it has been daunting to try and get a new article posted. I would really appreciate any help as I´m all in now. Thanks in advance Heatman1 (talk) 13:52, 31 October 2012 (UTC)

Thanks! I really appreciate the quick response. I´ll post a note on the Wealth Lab forum and see if I can get some help improve its level. Cheers! Heatman1 (talk) 17:02, 31 October 2012 (UTC)

Equinet article submission[edit]

Thank you very much for looking into the article I created. You declined it because "the sources provided seem to be affiliated with the subject". I am sorry if this is a newbie confusion, but I would like to say that I referred to Equinet's sources because this is the only place where this kind of detailed information about the organisation can be found. Equinet like many other small organisations do not have in-depth or up-to-date depictions of them written by other entities.

I randomly checked some of the organisations that work in equality field and suffer from the same kind of problems. Indeed, I found that their Wikipedia pages don't refer to any other sources apart from their own and in some cases include a long text without any references. Yet they have been approved...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/European_Commission_against_Racism_and_Intolerance http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ENAR http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/European_Women%27s_Lobby

So I am simply wondering what a feasible solution would be? Would I have to wait years and hope that the organisation would become famous enough to have its structure and activities portrayed by newspapers or other entities? Thank you for your reply! Equinet (talk) 13:57, 5 November 2012 (UTC)


I am sorry if this is disappointing - let me know if there is anything else I can do for you, and I wish you success in your future endeavors. --Cerebellum (talk) 18:26, 6 November 2012 (UTC)

I don't even know if I should reply on my or your Talk page, such a n00b. But I do not understand how I should make the changes ? After doing research for alternative sources and adding them I clicked "edit the article" on my page and then saved it and sent for submission. But now you say that I did it "without going through the Articles for Creation process, simply by going to a blank page (e.g. Equinet) and filling in information". I don't even know what I did wrong, I would be happy to do it the right way.

But what about those other articles I linked, the ones that are accepted with way poorer sources than the ones here? Just curious!

Thanks a lot for all your help, I really appreciate it. Equinet (talk) 13:22, 8 November 2012 (UTC)

Review of Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/RaiseAChild.US[edit]

I would like feedback please on my article Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/RaiseAChild.US, which you said read more like an advertisement. This is my first article and in my zeal to document online sources, I included press releases the organization published on PRWeb. I'm guessing that might be one of the problems, but I'd like to know if it is and also if there are other problems, such as talking too much about the founders. I tried to follow the format of other articles published on Wikipedia about other nonprofits. I would like to correct this article and submit others, so I would appreciate specific feedback on how to revise the article so that it will be accepted.

Welcome to the 2013 WikiCup![edit]

Hello Cerebellum, and welcome to the 2013 WikiCup! Your submissions' page is here. The competition begins at midnight UTC. The first round will last until the end of February, at which point the top 64 scorers will advance to the second round. We will be in touch at the end of every month, and signups are going to remain open until the end of January; if you know of anyone else who may like to take part, please let them know! A few reminders: *The rules can be found here. There have been a few changes from last year, which are listed on that page. *Anything you submit must have been nominated and promoted in 2013, and you need to have completed significant work upon it in 2013. (The articles you review at good article reviews does not need to have been nominated in 2013, but you do need to have started the review in 2013.) We will be checking. *If you feel that another competitor is breaking the rules or abusing the competition in some way, please let a judge know. Please do not remove entries from the submissions' pages of others yourself. *Don't worry about calculating precisely how many points everything is worth. The bot will do that. The bot may occasionally get something wrong- let a judge know, or post on the WikiCup talk page if that happens. *Please try to be prompt in updating submissions' pages so that they can be double-checked. Overall, however, don't worry, and have fun. It doesn't matter if you make the odd mistake; these things happen. Questions can be asked on the WikiCup talk page. Good luck!

WikiCup 2013 January newsletter[edit]

Trophy.png

Signups are now closed; we have our final 127 contestants for this year's competition. 64 contestants will make it to the next round at the end of February, but we're already seeing strong scoring compared to previous years. Colorado Sturmvogel_66 (submissions) currently leads, with 358 points. At this stage in 2012, the leader (Irish Citizen Army Grapple X (submissions)) had 342 points, while in 2011, the leader had 228 points. We also have a large number of scorers when compared with this stage in previous years. Florida 12george1 (submissions) was the first competitor to score this year, as he was last year, with a detailed good article review. Some other firsts:

Featured articles, portals and topics, as well as good topics, are yet to feature in the competition.

This year, the bonus points system has been reworked, with bonus points on offer for old articles prepared for did you know, and "multiplier" points reworked to become more linear. For details, please see Wikipedia:WikiCup/Scoring. There have been some teething problems as the bot has worked its way around the new system, but issues should mostly be ironed out- please report any problems to the WikiCup talk page. Here are some participants worthy of note with regards to the bonus points:

  • United States Ed! (submissions) was the first to score bonus points, with Portland-class cruiser, a good article.
  • Australia Hawkeye7 (submissions) has the highest overall bonus points, as well as the highest scoring article, thanks to his work on Enrico Fermi, now a good article. The biography of such a significant figure to the history of science warrants nearly five times the normal score.
  • Chicago HueSatLum (submissions) claimed bonus points for René Vautier and Nicolas de Fer, articles that did not exist on the English Wikipedia at the start of the year; a first for the WikiCup. The articles were eligible for bonus points because of fact they were both covered on a number of other Wikipedias.

Also, a quick mention of British Empire The C of E (submissions), who may well have already written the oddest article of the WikiCup this year: did you know that the Fucking mayor objected to Fucking Hell on the grounds that there was no Fucking brewery? The gauntlet has been thrown down; can anyone beat it?

If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck!

WikiCup 2013 February newsletter[edit]

Round 1 is now over. The top 64 scorers have progressed to round 2, where they have been randomly split into eight pools of eight. At the end of April, the top two from each pool, as well as the 16 highest scorers from those remaining, will progress to round 3. Commiserations to those eliminated; if you're interested in still being involved in the WikiCup, able and willing reviewers will always be needed, and if you're interested in getting involved with other collaborative projects, take a look at the WikiWomen's Month discussed below.

Round 1 saw 21 competitors with over 100 points, which is fantastic; that suggests that this year's competition is going to be highly competative. Our lower scores indicate this, too: A score of 19 was required to reach round 2, which was significantly higher than the 11 points required in 2012 and 8 points required in 2011. The score needed to reach round 3 will be higher, and may depend on pool groupings. In 2011, 41 points secured a round 3 place, while in 2012, 65 was needed. Our top three scorers in round 1 were:

  1. Colorado Sturmvogel_66 (submissions), primarily for an array of warship GAs.
  2. London Miyagawa (submissions), primarily for an array of did you knows and good articles, some of which were awarded bonus points.
  3. New South Wales Casliber (submissions), due in no small part to Canis Minor, a featured article awarded a total of 340 points. A joint submission with Alaska Keilana (submissions), this is the highest scoring single article yet submitted in this year's competition.

Other contributors of note include:

Featured topics have still played no part in this year's competition, but once again, a curious contribution has been offered by British Empire The C of E (submissions): did you know that there is a Shit Brook in Shropshire? With April Fools' Day during the next round, there will probably be a good chance of more unusual articles...

March sees the WikiWomen's History Month, a series of collaborative efforts to aid the women's history WikiProject to coincide with Women's History Month and International Women's Day. A number of WikiCup participants have already started to take part. The project has a to-do list of articles needing work on the topic of women's history. Those interested in helping out with the project can find articles in need of attention there, or, alternatively, add articles to the list. Those interested in collaborating on articles on women's history are also welcome to use the WikiCup talk page to find others willing to lend a helping hand. Another collaboration currently running is an an effort from WikiCup participants to coordinate a number of Easter-themed did you know articles. Contributions are welcome!

A few final administrative issues. From now on, submission pages will need only a link to the article and a link to the nomination page, or, in the case of good article reviews, a link to the review only. See your submissions' page for details. This will hopefully make updating submission pages a little less tedious. If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck!

We noticed though that when you edited Third Epistle of John, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page John Painter (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Thank you very much for the kind words and the review! I certainly hope to keep working on these, but it's pretty daunting considering that so much has been written about most books of the Bible. The shorter books like 3 John are nice because the information available is more manageable. Thank you again and good luck with your 2013 goals, those are very impressive! Regards, --Cerebellum (talk) 02:18, 18 March 2013 (UTC)
Yep, I suspect that's why you're the first. Still, if you ever take any more on, best of luck! -- Khazar2 (talk) 02:43, 18 March 2013 (UTC)

John Cotton[edit]

Thanks very much for your review of John Cotton, and for the very kind recognition following. I believe I've answered your comments, so you may want to take a look. Your comments are very important to me, because I've done a lot of research on the article, and would like to promote it further. Also, nice work on the Third epistle of John. Would be great to see this kind of scholarship on all the books. Sarnold17 (talk) 20:24, 24 March 2013 (UTC)

Women's Worldwide Web[edit]

Hi Cerebellum, hope you're doing well! I received an email that my article has been reviewed and penalized once again (not by you) and with out giving me some advice. Could you be so kind to take a look, please? Your comments will help me improove it, if necessary. Also, I would like to ask you a question, if I may: I am living in Paris, and translated the article into French. I submitted it to fr.Wikipedia.org (it was refused) and asked me to use intewikis. I am not an expert, so I followed the guideline in order to creat women's worldwide web (empowering women) tag on the wikidata, in order to allow the interwikis on English version. I am really lost... What can I do? Your advice is valuable for me! Thanks in advance for your attention to this message. Wishing you a lovely day! GabyLevy (talk) 11:14, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

WikiCup 2013 April newsletter[edit]

We are a week into Round 3, but it is off to a flying start, with Republic of Rose Island Sven Manguard (submissions) claiming for the high-importance Portal:Sports and Portal:Geography (which are the first portals ever awarded bonus points in the WikiCup) and Wales Cwmhiraeth (submissions) claiming for a did you know of sea, the highest scoring individual did you know article ever submitted for the WikiCup. Round 2 saw very impressive scores at close; first place New South Wales Casliber (submissions) and second place Colorado Sturmvogel_66 (submissions) both scored over 1000 points; a feat not seen in Round 2 since 2010. This, in part, has been made possible by the change in the bonus points rules, but is also testament to the quality of the competition this year. Pool C and Pool G were most competitive, with three quarters of participants making it to Round 3, while Pool D was the least, with only the top two scorers making it through. The lowest qualifying score was 123, significantly higher than last year's 65, 2011's 41 or even 2010's 100.

The next issue of The Signpost is due to include a brief update on the current WikiCup, comparing it to previous years' competitions. This may be of interest to current WikiCup followers, and may help bring some more new faces into the community. We would also like to note that this round includes an extra competitor to the 32 advertised, who has been added to a random pool. This extra inclusion seems to have been the fairest way to deal with a small mistake made before the beginning of this round, but should not affect the competition in a large way. If you have any questions or concerns about this, please feel free to contact one of the judges.

A rules clarification: content promoted between rounds can be claimed in the round after the break, but not the round before. The case in point is content promoted on 29/30 April, which may be claimed in this round. If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck! If you wish to start or stop receiving this newsletter, please feel free to add or remove yourself from Wikipedia:WikiCup/Newsletter/Send.

WikiProject Good Articles Recruitment Centre[edit]

Good Article Recruitment - Completion Award.png
Hello! Now, some of you might have already received a similar message a little while ago regarding the Recruitment Centre, so if you have, there is no need to read the rest of this. This message is directed to users who have reviewed over 15 Good article nominations and are not part of WikiProject Good articles (the first message I sent out went to only WikiProject members).

So for those who haven't heard about the Recruitment Centre yet, you may be wondering why there is a Good article icon with a bunch of stars around it (to the right). The answer? WikiProject Good articles will be launching a Recruitment Centre very soon! The centre will allow all users to be taught how to review Good article nominations by experts just like you! However, in order for the Recruitment Centre to open in the first place, we need some volunteers:

  • Recruiters: The main task of a recruiter is to teach users that have never reviewed a Good article nomination how to review one. To become a recruiter, all you have to do is meet this criteria. If we don't get at least 5-10 recruiters to start off with (at the time this message was sent out, 2 recruiters have volunteered), the Recruitment Centre will not open. If interested, make sure you meet the criteria, read the process and add your name to the list of recruiters. (One of the great things about being a recruiter is that there is no set requirement of what must be taught and when. Instead, all the content found in the process section is a guideline of the main points that should be addressed during a recruitment session...you can also take an entire different approach if you wish!) If you think you will not have the time to recruit any users at this time but are still interested in becoming a recruiter, you can still add your name to the list of recruiters but just fill in the "Status" parameter with "Not Available".
  • Co-Director: The current Director for the centre is me (Dom497). Another user that would be willing to help with some of the tasks would be helpful. Tasks include making sure recruiters are doing what they should be (teaching!), making sure all recruitments are archived correctly, updating pages as needed, answering any questions, and distributing the feedback form. If interested, please contact me (Dom497).
  • Nominators, please read this: If you are not interested in becoming a recruiter, you can still help. In some cases a nominator may have an issue with an "inexperienced" editor (the recruitee) reviewing one of their nominations. To minimize the chances of this happening, if you are fine with a recruitee reviewing one of your nominations under the supervision of the recruiter, please add your name to the list at the bottom of this page. By adding your name to this list, chances are that your nomination will be reviewed more quickly as the recruitee will be asked to choose a nomination from the list of nominators that are OK with them reviewing the article.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to seeing this program bring new reviewers to the Good article community and all the positive things it will bring along.

A message will be sent out to all recruiters regarding the date when the Recruitment Centre will open when it is determined. The message will also contain some further details to clarify things that may be a bit confusing.--Dom497 (talk)

WikiCup 2013 June newsletter[edit]

We are down to our final 16: the 2013 semi-finals are upon us. A score of 321 was required to survive round 3, further cementing this as the most competitive WikiCup yet; round 3 was survived in 2012 with 243 points, in 2011 with 76 points and in 2010 with 250 points. The change may in part be to do with the fact that more articles are now awarded bonus points, in addition to more competitive play. Reaching the final has, in the past, required 573 points (2012, a 135% increase on the score needed to reach round 4), 150 points (2011, a 97% increase) and 417 points (2010, a 72% increase). This round has seen over a third of participants claiming points for featured articles (with seven users claiming for multiple featured articles) and most users have also gained bonus points. However, the majority of points continue to come from good articles, followed by did you know articles. In this round, every content type was utilised by at least one user, proving that the WikiCup brings together content contributors from all corners of the project.

Round 3 saw a number of contributions of note. Idaho Figureskatingfan (submissions) claimed the first featured topic points in this year's competition for her excellent work on topics related to Maya Angelou, the noted American author and poet. We have also continued to see high-importance articles improved as part of the competition: Wyoming Ealdgyth (submissions) was awarded a thoroughly well-earned 560 points for her featured article Middle Ages and 102 points for her good article Battle of Hastings. Good articles James Chadwick and Stanislaw Ulam netted Australia Hawkeye7 (submissions) 102 and 72 points respectively, while 72 points were awarded to Poland Piotrus (submissions) for each of Władysław Sikorski and Emilia Plater, both recently promoted to good article status. Collaborative efforts between WikiCup participants have continued, with, for example, New South Wales Casliber (submissions) and Canada Sasata (submissions) being awarded 180 points each for their featured article on Boletus luridus.

A rules reminder: content promoted between rounds can be claimed in the round after the break, but not the round before. The case in point is content promoted on the 29/30 June, which may be claimed in this round. If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. We are currently seeing concern about the amount of time people have to wait for reviews, especially at GAC- if you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to reduce the review backlogs! Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck! If you wish to start or stop receiving this newsletter, please feel free to add or remove yourself from Wikipedia:WikiCup/Newsletter/Send.

Best of wishes on your recently-initiated RFA![edit]

I just wanted to send you this message to wish you the best wishes for you recent self-nominated RFA! As many may have said, this week will be filled with challenges and stress that will show how you would handle your responses (and, for that matter, immediate responses during the RFA process) in regards to anything that comes along with earning the "mop". Regardless of the outcome (or how I personally end up voting), I wish you the best and hope that this week will be a welcome challenge and achievement to you and your experiences on Wikipedia.

Good luck and Some Qs at your RfA[edit]

Hi Cerebellum, Good luck for your RfA. You appears to be a good candidate and I tend to support you. I have asked some question, but I read your comment to the first neutral vote which has slightly overlapping concerns after posting the questions. I hope you don't mind still answering those.--Vigyanitalkਯੋਗਦਾਨ 04:55, 24 October 2013 (UTC)

Advance congratulations![edit]

Cerebellum, let me take the opportunity to convey to you my advance congratulations on an RfA that is evidently going to be closed as successful in the next two hours or so. Please feel free to ask me or other administrators for any help in administration; from scripts to procedure knowledge, anything that can assist you in handling administration better. Again, thanks for offering to administrate. Have fun! Wifione Message 21:13, 29 October 2013 (UTC)

Thank you so much Wifione for all your help and support! I'll probably be asking you questions soon :) --Cerebellum (talk) 01:34, 30 October 2013 (UTC)

You are now an administrator[edit]

Congratulations, I have just closed your RfA as successful and made you an administrator. Take a look at the administrators' how-to guide and the administrators' reading list if you haven't read those already. Also, the practice exercises at the new admin school may be useful. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to get in touch on my talk page. WJBscribe (talk) 23:30, 29 October 2013 (UTC)

  • Congratulations, feel free to raid my monobook for some nifty block rationale scripts that some kind soul put there. As you are mainly a content contributor one area of adminship that you might want to get involved in is handing out the Autopatrolled userright. Every now and then some of us go on trawls of editors who have contributed over 50 articles and it never ceases to amaze me how many neglected colleagues we encounter in the process.

Export hell seidel steiner.png Hi Cerebellum, I was one of a very small number of people that were neutral on your nomination.

Help for admins[edit]

There's a whole host of useful scripts for admins in my User:Kudpung/vector.js that you can plunder.

Evolutionary and Institutional Economics Review[edit]

I've nominated this article for deletion at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Evolutionary and Institutional Economics Review; I'm notifying you because you accepted it at AfC DGG ( talk ) 19:05, 17 November 2013 (UTC)

ditto at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Jedediah Bila DGG ( talk ) 21:43, 17 November 2013 (UTC)

afc and promotionalism[edit]

I think you are considerably more permissive than I would be about promotionalism in articles from AfC. I've identified a few articles about subjects that are probably notable, but where the article is so promotional that I would not have accepted it. I'm not intending to say that I am necessarily right, and I know that consensus is very variable on the question of promotionalism, for which there are no absolute standards, and I also know that I am considerable less permissive here than I would have been 2 or 3 years ago. But the difference seems striking enough that it's worth a discussion.

The two articles above are ones I think clearly non-notable as well as promotional. I've identified some others, back from very recently to a year ago, that I think notable enough for an article and might perhaps be rescued by rewriting, which I consequently do not want to nominate for deletion if it can be avoided. (However, I do not have time to fix these--I have time only to work on those of undoubtedly high notability and those of special interest to me.)

Some are not particularly promotional, but may not be notable :

This one's marginal but there are two good sources ([1], [2]) so I think it's ok --Cerebellum (talk) 19:27, 20 November 2013 (UTC)
Seems notable to me. --Cerebellum (talk) 19:27, 20 November 2013 (UTC)
Lots of junk refs, but some substantial coverage in [Google Books. --Cerebellum (talk) 23:04, 23 November 2013 (UTC)
Not too sure about this one - there are lots of random Google News results from the 80s, but I can't tell if they constitute substantial coverage or not. I'm inclined to give it the benefit of the debt since it has at least been around for a while. --Cerebellum (talk) 23:04, 23 November 2013 (UTC)

There are also some where I have some doubt consensus would accept the notability if challenged, but where I personally would defend it, such as Adam Gussen and other losing political candidates from major parties. I rather doubt the notability of Ahna O'Reilly (only one significant role, which is a little excessive to call co-star) but I am not sure of notability standards here, and I rarely get involved with such articles. I thing Altegris is notable , but I think the sources inadequate to show it.

In the context of the increase in paid and promotional editing, I think we need to be much more sensitive. Among the things I look for are business or administrative jargon, adjectives of importance, use of bullets instead of paragraphs, and listing of more than the CEO in the infobox. I think most of the article I indicated were made by PR editors, either outside or inside the organization,on the basis of their similarity to the thousands of known such articles. I know I' m hitting you with a good many of these at once, and everyone has made mistakes in this area, myself included. DGG ( talk ) 23:38, 17 November 2013 (UTC)

Hi Cerebellum (talk), Thanks so much for your review and feedback for the AFC I submitted yesterday for The Wisdom Tree (Film). I see your pov. Having fixed the areas of issue, I believe it is neutral, with only the facts presented. I would truly appreciate your review of my resubmission. Am hoping it receives the green flag for inclusion in Wikipedia. :) Thank you for your time, and speedy feedback.Pictowrit (talk) 22:15, 23 November 2013 (UTC) pictowrit

Hi again, Cerebellum (talk) Okay, so I've paid great attention to present just facts about the film. Also, have edited the text substantially, in view of your comments and suggestions for a more acceptable article. Thank you for the advice and your time. :) Now here's the bind I was in thus far, which I'd like to draw your attention to. The film has not been released to the general public yet. In fact, as the article indicates, only limited people have seen the film. Hence, at this point providing further references from newspaper articles or citations from elsewhere is not feasible. Nevertheless I have taken utmost care to ensure there's neither fluff, nor peacock enhancement on the story, nor for the characters. These are just as depicted in the story. As far as the actors go, I've no other source but IMDb at this point, but have knocked off the little additional info I had in previously. Now there are just 'external' links. In all sincerity I believe I've presented a totally neutral point of view. Truly would appreciate your happy nod on this one. :) This is an article about a film with bare bones information. Hope to read this article here on Wikipedia. :) Thanks a bunch. Pictowrit (talk) 23:20, 24 November 2013 (UTC)pictowrit

John Coxall[edit]

Hi, I've proposed this page which you created for deletion. I can't find any serious sources on the guy, and as someone who was briefly the mayor of Cairns more than a century ago he doesn't have inherent notability under WP:POLITICIAN. Frickeg (talk) 02:17, 26 January 2014 (UTC)

Kevin Galalae[edit]

I'm new to this so don't know if this is the right medium to discuss something with Cerebellum. If it is, I would like to know in more detail exactly what objections cerebellum hasto the article written on Kevin Galalae. I look forward to receiving your reply. Best wishes.

I was not the reviewer for this draft, but i have reviewed a number of AfC submissions in the past, and I took a quick look at it. It seem to me that is is written from the PoV of a supporter of the subject, not from a neutral point of view. Specifically, several of the subject's actions were clearly controversial -- ad the very least two governments seem to have been opposed to his actions, and no doubt others objected also, but we don't seem to get any opinions or views from those who oppose the subject's views. Moreover, very controversial claims (such as "the chemical and biological methods used since 1945 by the United Nations and countries around the world to undermine human fertility.") are presented as unchallenged facts. Extraordinary claims (such as " the Canadian authorities have coopted doctors to falsify Galalae’s medical record" and " He was falsely charged with harassment, thrown out of his own home, separated from his children, cut off from his own bank account, deprived of all his computers, thrown penniless into the street, and bound by recognizance conditions designed to bankrupt him financially and emotionally") are sourced to a wiki and what appears to be a highly partisan source. This is not good enough for such claims. Indeed this is probably a violation of our Living people policy as well as of verifiability. DES (talk) 17:23, 28 January 2014 (UTC)

Article for creation/Kevin Galalae[edit]

You declined a submission on 23rd November 2013. I would like to edit this article so that it is in a form acceptable to you. I'm completely new to the ways of Wikipedia and see this task as being rather daunting! If there is any way you could explain your objections and give me a little guidance as to how I could put things right I would be very grateful. Best wishes.

Giving you a heads up[edit]

Hey, just giving you a heads up that an article you accepted from AfC a few years ago, Peter Wanderfalke, was recently deleted as a hoax. This isn't a post to chastise you or anything, just letting you know what happened. It appears that the sources on the article weren't genuine and there was no mention of him in any scholarly or reputable sources. I figure that if you know of any proof that he exists, we can re-create the article and re-open the AfD. Tokyogirl79 (。◕‿◕。) 08:16, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

Article for creation/Scott McDonald[edit]

Thanks again for your review and suggestions for my Scott McDonald article. Your feedback last November was invaluable. I did resubmit and was rejected, which really helped me learn where I was still lacking on the sourcing front. I believe the page is much stronger now and was hoping to seek your advice on next steps. If you feel it is improved and ready for re-submission, I would be more confident adding back to the queue. If there are other improvements you recommend, I will gladly heed your advice. Thanks so much. This has been a fantastic education and I am grateful for all the feedback received from great editors along this journey. All the best. Kingman13 (talk) 16:49, 18 February 2014 (UTC)
