Deepest apologies[edit]

Hello, I received a message from you saying that you had deleted one of my entries to the Siberian Tiger wikipedia page. I had no idea what you were talking about until I viewed the entry that you provided the link to. It turns out that my daughter, who was supposed to be using the wiki to find facts for her Siberian Tiger report, had made the offensive entry. I am so mortified and humbly apologize for her inexcusable behavior. Rest assured she will be more closely monitored in the future. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.187.170.235 (talk) 03:12, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

AfC bot[edit]

Could you run your bot through Wikipedia:WikiProject Articles for creation/June 2014 Backlog Elimination Drive one more time, please? Many reviews had been done and although awards have already been given out, I'd like to see the correct final tally. Thanks Chris Troutman (talk) 02:55, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

Diagram Error[edit]

Would you please check the first decision node is correct that test success directs to rewriting the code? And a failed test is sending for developing the production code.

Copyright checks when performing AfC reviews[edit]

Hello Excirial. This message is part of a mass mailing to people who appear active in reviewing articles for creation submissions. First of all, thank you for taking part in this important work! I'm sorry this message is a form letter – it really was the only way I could think of to covey the issue economically. Of course, this also means that I have not looked to see whether the matter is applicable to you in particular.

The issue is in rather large numbers of copyright violations ("copyvios") making their way through AfC reviews without being detected (even when easy to check, and even when hallmarks of copyvios in the text that should have invited a check, were glaring). A second issue is the correct method of dealing with them when discovered.

If you don't do so already, I'd like to ask for your to help with this problem by taking on the practice of performing a copyvio check as the first step in any AfC review. The most basic method is to simply copy a unique but small portion of text from the draft body and run it through a search engine in quotation marks. Trying this from two different paragraphs is recommended. (If you have any question about whether the text was copied from the draft, rather than the other way around (a "backwards copyvio"), the Wayback Machine is very useful for sussing that out.)

If you do find a copyright violation, please do not decline the draft on that basis. Copyright violations need to be dealt with immediately as they may harm those whose content is being used and expose Wikipedia to potential legal liability. If the draft is substantially a copyvio, and there's no non-infringing version to revert to, please mark the page for speedy deletion right away using {{db-g12|url=URL of source}}. If there is an assertion of permission, please replace the draft article's content with {{subst:copyvio|url=URL of source}}.

Some of the more obvious indicia of a copyvio are use of the first person ("we/our/us..."), phrases like "this site", or apparent artifacts of content written for somewhere else ("top", "go to top", "next page", "click here", use of smartquotes, etc.); inappropriate tone of voice, such as an overly informal tone or a very slanted marketing voice with weasel words; including intellectual property symbols (™,®); and blocks of text being added all at once in a finished form with no misspellings or other errors.

I hope this message finds you well and thanks again you for your efforts in this area. Best regards--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 02:20, 18 November 2014 (UTC).

Saint Petersburg State Institute of Psychology and Social Work[edit]

You removed the redirecting page (mentioned above) which has still links leading to it. So now those links became red, although the article contents is still available on Wikipedia.
Great work, mister admin... --CiaPan (talk) 13:56, 27 November 2014 (UTC)

Your right - i was mostly busy performing a history split for the first question and figured i'd have a look at the second one after i was done. Since it initially looked like the ye-regular page rename a day after the page was created i ended up cleaning the redirect without remembering to check for backlinks first. Stupid, but thankfully relatively harmless and easily fixed by restoring the page (Done now). That said - Was that second line really required to get the message across? Errare humanum est and such. Excirial (Contact me,Contribs) 14:23, 27 November 2014 (UTC)
I'm really sorry, that was not necessary. Just typing too fast when was angry—and I was angry because I tried to answer WP:Help desk#St. Petersburg State Institute of Psychology and Social Work point 2), saying the redir should be kept, and before I committed my answer I realized it was too late because the redir already disappeared.
Please accept my apologies, I certainly should have waited an hour or two before answering. --CiaPan (talk) 17:40, 27 November 2014 (UTC)
Oh, and thanks for restoring the page. :)

Wikimedia genealogy project[edit]

Just wondering if you have any thoughts re: the idea of WMF hosting a genealogy project. If so, feel free to contribute to this discussion. And apologies if I have made this request before. ---Another Believer (Talk) 16:57, 10 December 2014 (UTC)
