WikiProject Physics Poll[edit]

There is currently a poll about WikiProject Physics in general. Please take some time to answer it (or part of it), as it will help coordinate and guide the future efforts of the Project. Thank you. Headbomb {ταλκWP Physics: PotW} 18:18, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

oops[edit]

Wiped your talk page somehow when adding in a section (I'm still confused as to how that happened, I clicked on add new section so it shouldn't have been possible for it to have wiped the page, to say the least that the edit history showed the page wasn't 0 kb). Sorry. ηoian ‡orever ηew ‡rontiers 03:55, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

how do you move a category?[edit]

Specifically, I want to move [[Category:Azureus]] to [[Category:Vuze]], but I don't know how. Thanks! ηoian ‡orever ηew ‡rontiers 05:12, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

Done! I simple made a new catagory Category:Vuze and requested the old Category Category:Azureus to be deleted. -- Tyw7, leading new frontiers ‍ ‍‍ (TalkContributions) 13:25, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

Barnstar[edit]

I did a major overhaul of of the article Symantec LiveUpdate--updating the contents and uploading a picture. I also improved the main page of WikiProject Software. Because of these reasons, I think I deserve a barnstar. --21:10, 12 August 2008 (UTC) Tyw7, formerly Troop350 (TalkContributions)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Prince of Persia logo.JPG)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Prince of Persia logo.JPG. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 05:17, 28 August 2008 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:PoPOldMan.jpg[edit]

Resolved: Actually a free image —Ashanda (talk) 05:01, 4 October 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading Image:PoPOldMan.jpg. You've indicated that the image is being used under a claim of fair use, but you have not provided an adequate explanation for why it meets Wikipedia's requirements for such images. In particular, for each page the image is used on, the image must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Can you please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for each article the image is used in.
  • That every article it is used on is linked to from its description page.

Proposed deletion of Blu (Software)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Blu (Software), suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

no assertion of notability

All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because, even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. Ironholds (talk) 16:03, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

The examples given at the notability guidelines are things the article must have to be kept. We do not delete articles if they are covered by third parties :P. Ironholds (talk) 19:22, 3 June 2009 (UTC)
No, you need to show how the article passes the notability guidelines. Linking it around Wikipedia is helpful, but it doesn't solve that problem. I advise just sticking a note at the software wikiproject's talkpage. Ironholds (talk) 20:32, 3 June 2009 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Blu (Software)[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg
An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated article is Blu (Software). We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Blu (Software). Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 01:12, 4 June 2009 (UTC)

Please update your status with WP:VG[edit]

Dear WikiProject Video games member,

You are receiving this message because you have either Category:WikiProject Video games members or {{User WPVG}} somewhere in your userspace and you have edited Wikipedia in the recent months.

The Video games project has created a member list to provide a clearer picture of its active membership.

All members have currently been placed in the "Inactive" section by default. Please remove your username from the "Inactive" listing and place it under the "Active" listing if you plan on regularly:

Ideally, members are encouraged to do both, but either one meets our criteria of inclusion. Members still listed inactive at the beginning of November 2009 may be removed. You may re-add yourself to the active list at any time. Thank you for your help, and we look forward to working with you.

PoP: Forgotten Sands[edit]

Hello there. I'm certainly not claiming ownership of the article. Let's go through the changes I made (first indent will be my version, second is the one you just reverted to):

  • developed by Ubisoft Montreal for unspecified platforms, due for release in May 2010. The game will mark a return to the Sands of Time storyline.
  • announced to return to the Sand of Time storyline.

Right, so the lead sentence of the article (I feel) should be as informative as possible. Therefore, I think it should include A) the name of the game, B) the developer, C) the platforms and D) the release date. Things like publisher are optional. In my case, I make note of these. In your's, you do not. "announced to return" is also bad english, and tacking on the story aspect to the lead sentence would make it too long, so I chose to separate it.

  • The official announcement by Ubisoft, dated 30th Nov. reports it to be under development in their Montreal studio, to be released on "consoles & handhelds" in May 2010.

The time of the announcement isn't notable, and as you see, I covered the information in the lead sentence. I use "unspecified platforms" simply as it flows (and sounds) better than "consoles & handhelds" (with quotation marks and an ampersand). Minor problems with things like "reports" (implying it may not be unreliable), date formatting, etc.

  • Prince of Persia website features the new title & the Exclusive World TV Premier is expected on December 12, 2009 8 p.m. EST on Spike TV's Video Game Awards 2009.

Firstly, external links shouldn't be used in body text. Second, this sentence looks like it's been pulled directly from a website (and it uses peacock words like "exclusive". Third, and this is the reason I removed it, stating a time for something like a trailer isn't something that should be in an article. Maybe for something like the start/end of a beta (but still, using times would be rare), but not what's essentially an advert. Finally, that the official site uses the new title isn't notable. And please don't use ampersands in text.
Please don't use threats in your edit summaries, gimme a shout back if you've questions. Thanks! Fin© 18:43, 3 December 2009 (UTC)

I'm back! Unfortunately, you don't seem to have taken anything I said on board, and are missing some key points:
  • "But, dude please don't try to make this article a wikipedia A standard in just the beginning just doesn't make sense."
Why not? It's easier to keep an article at A standard for longer if you do so from the start, no?
  • "The time of Announce IS notable, not for 6 months after, but Now."
Why is it notable that it was Nov 30? Does it make a difference if it was Nov 29 or Dec 1?
"Unspecified platforms" is used as they're not specified. Platforms in this case means Xbox, PlayStation etc, though point taken, I'll change it to "unspecified consoles" or something.
A lot of the points you make miss what I was trying to say - "The text isn't pulled from the website" - I said the text looks (and by that I mean "reads") like it's been pulled from the website. "Exclusive" is a peacock word that's unnecessary.
  • "Most people who would have visited this article then would like to have a sneak peek at that date"
Perhaps, but that's not a reason to include it. A lot of the people going to the Tekken 6 article might like to see moves of a certain character, but they shouldn't be included.
I'm going to (yet again) go back to my version. You didn't fix anything I noted (external links, ampersands etc), and while you're right to assume that smaller fixes shouldn't necessitate a total revert, the various problems with the article as-is (as I've noted above) does. I haven't address some of the things you said - gimme a shout if you'd like me to. Thanks! Fin© 22:00, 6 December 2009 (UTC)

Another gentle ping from WP:VG[edit]

Dear Deblopper,

You are receiving this message because either [[Category:WikiProject Video games members]] or {{User WPVG}} is somewhere in your userspace, and you are currently listed in the "Unknown" section on the project's member list.

The member list is meant to provide a clearer picture of active membership. It is recommended that you update your status if you plan to regularly:

Members listed in the "Unknown" section will be removed from the membership list and category at the end of January 2010. You may re-add yourself to the active list at any time. Thank you for your help, and we look forward to working with you.

Joining - proper place for content of Algorithms and Data Structures?[edit]

I edit the Dictionary of Algorithms and Data Structures, which is hosted by my work (NIST). I don't see anyone continuing the work after I retire (in a decade or so), so I want to migrate the content to some public place, like Wikipedia. It looks like WikiProject Software is a good home, so I'm joining.

If you have any suggestions, like more applicable places, I would be grateful. Drpaule (talk) 17:40, 19 August 2010 (UTC)


We appreciate your effort, and welcome it; most importantly for sharing it publicly. It will be our honor to have you as a WikiProject Software Member.
For updating Dictionary of Algorithms and Data Structures, if you ever need helping hands (for making it wiki-standard, using templates, references, linking etc.), then you can put the article in the to-do list. If you are interested to contribute in other articles/sections/aspects of this project, then please let me know how much time you can dedicate for this purpose and I'll tell you in which articles/sections you can contribute.
Alternatively, you can also contact Asst. Leader Tinucherian or Co-ordinator Tyw7 for urgent queries, as they are currently more active than me. In that case, also let me know by posting a {{talkback}} with the link of the discussion (talk) page. Happy wiking!

Politicians arrested and charges with corruption[edit]

You are invited for discussion at Wikipedia:Categories for discussion/Log/2011 June 1 and Category talk:Politicians arrested and charges with corruption-- . Shlok talk . 18:34, 2 June 2011 (UTC)

Hey. Your advice in the above discussion was to remake the category as a list so that we could avoid the problems which were coming up in discussion. I thought I would try that out, and if you would be so kind, I would appreciate your feedback on my attempt. Would you please visit List of politicians in India charged with corruption? I would appreciate your advising me on what problems this article is likely to have. Thanks, Deblopper. Blue Rasberry (talk) 22:13, 14 June 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the update, I took a look at the page, and also have summoned people to enrich it. Looks nice as a stub page to start with. I think, we should also categorize the list state wise - so that people from a certain state could be more focus (& less screw-up on other data), cause the formatting of wiki-table is very sensitive to amateur usage.
A note about page deletion - once the page is significantly rich - it won't be deleted, generally! So focus for that. – DebPokeEditList ‖ 08:24, 15 June 2011 (UTC)

Username Change Confirmation[edit]

I want to have my (unified-)username "Deblopper" changed to "Debloper" (single P) accross all the Wikimedia projects. Here is the list of the projects in my commons::Special:MergeAccount -

Stewards, please ask for relevant information required for multiple username changes (if I've missed anything). Please notify before renaming, if this action will sweep all contents of my userpage/talkpage/signature or not. If it cleans everything out, then I'll have to take a backup - otherwise, just proceed with renaming.

Thanks in advance. – DebPokeEditList ‖ 11:57, 2 September 2011 (UTC)

Hi Deblopper. Below is a list of local bureaucrats and local renaming pages in the projects you listed. However, since you have 0 edits in many of them it may be simpler to just unify your new Debloper account to those wikis once you have been renamed in the projects where you have edits. Your user and user talk pages are moved to the new name when the account is renamed, usually leaving redirects from the old name.
Hope this helps. Jafeluv (talk) 12:21, 3 September 2011 (UTC)
Rename has been completed at en Wikibooks. You need to request the rename at all projects where you have edits. Then you visit - as often as you want - Special:Mergeaccount which will ensure the SUL is created properly. QU TalkQu 23:26, 28 December 2011 (UTC)
Hello. I've renamed you at meta.wikimedia.org. Please access Special:MergeAccount to attach the renamed account to the SUL one. If you have any questions or comments my talk page here and at meta is always open for them. Merry Christmas/New Year. Best regards. MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:04, 29 December 2011 (UTC)

WikiProject Software[edit]

Hi Debloper. Your row on WikiProject Software had a big sign that said "Ask me for help!" so I figured I would ping you.

I have a COI with JMP (statistical software); I offered a draft that was more neutral and properly sourced in December that was accepted. Based on the feedback we got from editors, we offered a second draft with an expanded version history, shorter Applications section and other anti-promotional tweeks.

Out of the involved editors, Noun is retiring, DGG doesn't like doing Request Edits, and Charles hasn't gotten to it. I asked John Broughton, a friend of mine, if he would take a look. He said he would two weekends ago, but hasn't been on since.

The Request Edit has been up for 3.5 weeks and in my opinion the edits are not very controversial. I'm just following through on the feedback we got. Is there a chance I could get your help with the Request Edit?

Kind regards. CorporateM (Talk) 14:15, 11 February 2013 (UTC)

Hi CorporateM, I've checked out your article. Albeit it has a few small loose ends at a few places, but without being a nit-pick here, I think it can be put up on its page. Although, I'd suggest not to copy-paste the entire content, rather use a text-diff tool to determine the differences between the latest version of the article & your article & make the changes accordingly, as required.
Unless I'm missing any context (even after looking at the history), I don't figure there is any dispute/conflict to be resolved - please, correct me if I'm wrong - but, if you're looking for someone to make the changes that you've edited, why not rather do it yourself? The article is freely editable. — DebPokeEdits ‖ 19:51, 11 February 2013 (UTC)
The current WP:COI guideline asks that editors participating in a PR capacity not directly edit the page. Legal precedence for astroturfing laws suggest similar ethical best practices and Jimmy Wales has threatened to humiliate any PR editor that edits article-space (he has even pointed this out to me specifically, presumably in regards to my reverting an editor that was harassing me).
I realize this is all a pain in the rear, but I'm just trying to follow the rules.  ;-) CorporateM (Talk) 20:14, 11 February 2013 (UTC)
There you go :) — DebPokeEdits ‖ 23:27, 11 February 2013 (UTC)
Thanks so much. Done and responded. I would like to bring it up to GA, so any feedback you have is welcome. I have a couple others too if you want to help out, but I don't want to be too much of a burden. CorporateM (Talk) 00:55, 12 February 2013 (UTC)
Glad it helped. This is not a burden, par se, but I'd rather request you to connect with Tinu - he's active, and he'll have more command over these kind of situations. — DebPokeEdits ‖ 08:54, 12 February 2013 (UTC)

Thanks. I pinged Tinu and nominated it for GA. I haven't figured out how to do GA reviews with a WP:COI, since I try to avoid article-space, but I suspect the edits will be non-controversial enough.

I've also requested a cleanup of a botched article merge on a startup article for Code 42 Software a couple weeks ago. That should be a pretty obvious one that's a couple weeks old if you care to take a look. I wish we had editors manning the Request Edit queue, but mostly we just get sparks of activity around major controversies and no committed Request Edit reviewers.
