Topics are (or are not) notable. Articles adequately demonstrate a topic's notability, or they do not. A topic's notability does not depend on Wikipedia article content.

Atleast 50 socket puppet exits of redacted[edit]

115.178.100.18 (talk) 09:38, 23 June 2014 (UTC) Contents of comment redacted. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs) 19:32, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

The proper place to report this is through WP:AN/I, WP:SPI, one of the administrative mailing-lists, one of the administrative IRC channels. I am not an administrator and I do have enough experience in sock-hunting to verify the claims. I did notice a few days ago that at least one of the names you listed was involved in an SPI of someone or other, but the determination was made that it was not the same editor as the puppet-master listed in that particular SPI. Again, please report this through one of the established venues for reporting suspected sockpuppets, not here. Thank you. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs) 19:32, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

Draft:Propulsion methods utilizing fuel accelerated from a remote fuel source[edit]

@Davidwr:Thank you for your comments on the draft page. I would appreciate it if you would check to see if I have addressed your concerns. Matthewhburch (talk) 06:02, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

It will be at least a few hours possibly a day or two before I can give you more feedback. It's time to turn off Wikipedia for awhile and get back to enjoying the rest of life. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs) 06:30, 25 June 2014 (UTC)
@Davidwr:Thank you again. I will spend that time generating a energy analysis of the example I used in the draft. Because you have been working with me, and have not had an opportunity to respond to some of my comments, I will not interfere with the comments that we went back and forth on. I did, however, add robotic refueling to the "Examples of Remote Fuel Methods" section, because you are right, it is a remote fuel method. It's orbital and terribly inefficient, but it is a remote fuel method. Matthewhburch (talk) 08:21, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

Draft:Saleem (Company)[edit]

Hi David,

I see you have left this article in a 'being reviewed' state. Is that because of your comments about deletion review (etc)? I'm not criticising, I'm just interested. Based on your comments I would have deferred to you on any future review anyway. Fiddle Faddle 08:40, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

Yes. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs) 19:53, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

Draft:Mansion House - Hurstpierpoint[edit]

Very pleased to have your insight and further reviews on the article. Toby Lott has taken on a huge undertaking for his first foray into Wikipedia. Technically you could probably accept this now. The OTRS template is, at present, sufficient, but I think your caution in awaiting the formal approval is justified. It also gives Toby Lott some further time to source additional references if such be available.

I'm sure this will be altered radically once it hits as an accepted article. This is why I am hoping Maggie Henderson's permission also extends in her eyes to the upload of her report as background material. Technically it does, but it is she who needs to make the source document available to us (probably me) to upload. I see the same OTRS ticket applying to it. Fiddle Faddle 08:19, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

@Timtrent: The OTRS ticket only applies to what it says it applies to. If the necessary permissions to upload the background material as free content aren't supplied, you can't upload it. It very likely will not qualify to be uploaded as non-free content under WP:NFCC. Besides, WikiScholar is probably the best Wikimedia project to house such background material. Archive.org is another place. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs) 18:59, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
The author of the paper has requested by email to me that the original paper be not uploaded. That has solved the issue of the upload. It does, however, make it an interesting challenge to use it as a reference. This will make the finding of more and more references that are accessible very important indeed. Fiddle Faddle 21:42, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
If the papers that are to be deposited with the records office actually get deposited, that may solve most of the referencing issues. Unsourced material can be removed later, and of course opinions should be removed as well. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs) 21:49, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
I wonder if you would take a moment to make the point about the depositing of the papers to the article author? While he and I have a decent working relationship he is not at all 'within' the world of Wikipedia and an additional voice would be beneficial. Fiddle Faddle 07:04, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
I just dropped a note on his talk page, at User talk:Toby Lott#Draft:Mansion House - Hurstpierpoint. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs) 15:03, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
