Re : List of classical piano duos (performers):[edit]

Hi Is there an explanation available for the twice deleted inclusion of Duo Va i Ve (being Valentina Seferinova and Venera Bojkova) in the above page list ?

Grateful for your comment(s) back. Regards MLADENOVA (talk) 10:43, 5 December 2014 (UTC)MladenovaMLADENOVA (talk) 10:43, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

The duo is non-notable and its only reference is a link promoting the group. Please see Wikipedia's guideline on lists of people. IronGargoyle (talk) 19:55, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

List of Egyptologists[edit]

Since when is a .edu address on the List of Egyptologist's page inaccurate?? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Wthowerto (talkcontribs) 22:59, 8 December 2014 (UTC)

They are not sufficient because they are simple faculty bios. They say nothing about the notability of the individual. You need reliable, independent sources to establish that. Simply having a .edu domain is not sufficient to make a source reliable and independent. IronGargoyle (talk) 01:29, 9 December 2014 (UTC)

Martha Jackson Jarvis[edit]

Hello. I removed the contents of Martha Jackson Jarvis in order to create a page with a non-hyphenated title. I wasn't able to remove the hyphen, which if you notice is not used in the artist's official website.Krisvec (talk) 21:31, 9 December 2014 (UTC)

I fixed the issue for you. Please read over Help:How to move a page if you encounter similar issues in the future. IronGargoyle (talk) 21:36, 9 December 2014 (UTC)

List of newspaper columnists[edit]

Hi I would like to know why three entries were removed from the list. Specifically one from the Philippines section and two from the Mexico (in Spanish) section. Thanks. Josejmcriollo (talk) 15:15, 12 December 2014 (UTC)

Because the entries were not notable. Please see WP:LISTPEOPLE which details the criteria for including individual names in lists of people. IronGargoyle (talk) 04:20, 13 December 2014 (UTC)

RE: The IP you've just warned[edit]

They've made a couple of fairly nasty personal attacks prior to that warning, most of which were in edit summaries. I'd warned them for that and for the unsourced/original research editing, and both of the warnings were blanked. Just a head's up. :) Lukeno94 (tell Luke off here) 20:40, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

The IP seems to have already been blocked. IronGargoyle (talk) 00:17, 20 December 2014 (UTC)


Hola. Re the changes to the Monterrey site. I reside in Monterrey. I am the source. Come and help me wash my car every 3 days and pressure wash the sidewalk. It is well known and not so nice side of Darwinian capitalism.

Please review WP:RS to understand the type of reliable sourcing that Wikipedia requires. Your personal opinion or observations do not suffice. IronGargoyle (talk) 00:17, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

Nice Job[edit]

I apologize for unnecessary editing. I was just checking how active are administrators. I am pretty sure, despite the number of administrators, you people could not manage all articles? What is the rectification ratio? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

Pizza Underground[edit]

Pizza Underground is Corey McCulkin's worst idea ever. Even worse than Home Alone. Source: Real Life — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:37, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

That's just your point of view. If there is consensus from critics about this, it can be referenced from verifiable, reliable sources and mentioned in a "reception" section. Otherwise, your statement is a violation of Wikipedia's neutral point of view policy. IronGargoyle (talk) 03:43, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

I am as qualified to critique Pizza Underground as any supposed "critic". Why I could start a blog now and say it's a critic blog. I would also say that the end of the article in which Pizza Underground was booed offstage to a chorus of pint glasses in England is a fairly representative review of Corin McCorklin's awful ideas. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:48, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

Blogs are not generally considered to be reliable sources. Promoting your own blog would also be a conflict of interest. IronGargoyle (talk) 03:52, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

Well then Mr. Gargoyle, it seems the only resolution would be to remove this article for failing to be noteworthy enough for inclusion on Wikipedia, at least outside of Corwin McConklin's personal page. Without Corky McCullen's name attached, Pizza Party Underground would not have a single mention on this site. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:55, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

IP edits of Fuschia (color)[edit]

Hello. Would you mind adding semi-protection to Fuchsia (color) for a couple of weeks? The IP you recently blocked isn't static, and this kind of thing has been going on for days over several pages (Red-violet, Shades of pink , and others) with zero talk-page comments. Thanks. Grayfell (talk) 04:24, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

Done. IronGargoyle (talk) 04:35, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, I appreciate it. Grayfell (talk) 04:36, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

Yalda article[edit]

Yalda Persian History.

Unless you are Persian you have no right.telling me what information is right and wrong. Every piece of nonsense posted about Mithraism and Paganism is unjust and illogical. People are destroying Persian History and sourcing it from fake historical websites. I know Persian History and you can't tell me what to edit. If you ban me from posting the truth I will report the ban to Wikipedia for unethical ban on members.

@Darius250000: If you want to add content, please provide a reliable source to back it all up, instead of edit warring with me and IronGargoyle. Please also take a look at WP:Neutral point of view, because it appears that you may have a conflict of interest if you feel so passionately about the topic. — kikichugirl speak up! 04:58, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

Yeah let me get up in this mix too! lets stop this blind deletion! I wish my Pizza Underground edits to be reinstated or the article to be deleted from wikipedia as not noteworthy — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:54, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

Travis Kalanick[edit]

I deleted the info in the Travis Kalanick page because it was not cited. I will delete it again, and I would like a firm explanation of why you do not understand this.

Gabi — Preceding unsigned comment added by Angry Orchard Hard Cider (talkcontribs)

The material you removed wasn't uncited. It was cited to the New York Times. That's about as good of a source as you can get. IronGargoyle (talk) 05:04, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

RE: link on Moliere page[edit]

RE: CHANGE TO MOLIERE PAGE IronGargoyle, you removed an external link I added to the Moliere page, under the section "Portrayals of Moliere." The section includes links for one literary biography and three films. I added a link to a stage play about Moliere, 'GOD OF LAUGHTER," which is a drama that portrays Moliere as the central character. It is a published play and I referenced the publisher in the entry.

Why would you allow references (or links) to films about Moliere and not include stage productions?? Was there something missing that would make my entry allowable? Gcbennett76 (talk) 03:38, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

Please review Wikipedia's conflict of interest policy. Wikipedia is not for promoting your own work. In addition, if it was noteworthy, a secondary source (added by someone else) would be the appropriate link and not a link to the publisher. IronGargoyle (talk) 07:14, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

The Islamic State (Caliphate) listed at Redirects for discussion[edit]


An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect The Islamic State (Caliphate). Since you had some involvement with the The Islamic State (Caliphate) redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion if you have not already done so.

i am sorry iron gargoyle but that last time i was trying to insert an image. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Curt215 (talkcontribs) 17:38, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

Airsoft link[edit]

The link I tried to include in the Airsoft article provided verifiable information surrounding the rules and laws governing airsoft in the US and UK with outbound links to other verifiable sources. Why was this inclusion removed from the article's reference list? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mrbrianspencer (talkcontribs) 18:16, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

It's primarily a commercial website, and you're not actually referencing anything. IronGargoyle (talk) 18:23, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

Krystian Bielik[edit]

Hello, could you please semi-protect Krystian Bielik. A lot of unsourced speculation being added about a move to Arsenal, which is not confirmed by the club. Thanks, JMHamo (talk) 18:21, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

Done. IronGargoyle (talk) 18:24, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

California Valley Miwok Tribe[edit]

All of the facts written on the page you edited were true, written by the tribe itself, and supported by attorneys. Check your facts. Firetopaz (talk) — Preceding undated comment added 19:24, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

They are not referenced to reliable sources and they contain some pretty serious accusations. If you persist in restoring this negative unsourced information you will be blocked. IronGargoyle (talk) 19:47, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

Landmark Worldwide[edit]

Hello! With this edit you restored a very large block of text, including multiple potential BLP issues, to the article - and you marked the edit as minor. I recommend that you review the talk page and history. I believe the anon IP was correct in the removal, but your judgment may vary. Thanks! --Tgeairn (talk) 19:25, 30 January 2015 (UTC)

Colossus of Rhodes (film)[edit]

The film takes place in Hellenistic times and King Serse of Rhodes (Italian spelling used in the movie) is an invented character, not the 5th century Persian ruler. If you have any evidence to the contrary, please cite it. (talk) 04:31, 3 February 2015 (UTC)


Sorry. It seems I left a warning for a revert that you made due to an edit conflict. Meters (talk) 21:23, 18 February 2015 (UTC)

No need for an apology. IronGargoyle (talk) 21:50, 19 February 2015 (UTC)

Steve Harrison[edit]

Thank you for removing the error page — Preceding unsigned comment added by RedJulianG40 (talkcontribs) 21:24, 18 February 2015 (UTC)

Not a problem. IronGargoyle (talk) 21:50, 19 February 2015 (UTC)

RE: adding link to official James Taylor Website Removed[edit]


You removed my link to the official James Taylor Website I entered it was the official website and I don't know why you removed it. The website was genuine and I think it was removed incorrectly

I will revert the undo and you can message me on my page if you would like to talk further — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

Socks? —George8211 / T 22:21, 19 February 2015 (UTC)

Could be, but I think more likely just a high volume of troublemakers latching onto the NBA trade news. IronGargoyle (talk) 18:34, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

Pecorino (grape)[edit]

Hi IronGargoyole, you should notice that the top picture in the page of Pecorino grape shows a specific bottle (a specific brand) of this wine. I do not think it is correct to associate the image of this wine to a specific winery, as there are several wineries producing it in Italy (in Abruzzo and Marche regions). That's why I have dropped the picture. Hope this can convince you. Please let me know what do you think about it. Giorgia — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:57, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

That seems reasonable. It helps to provide justifications like this is the edit summary. IronGargoyle (talk) 18:59, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

I don't get it.[edit]

If i edit bjp redirect to disambig page. It is reverted. If i redirect AAP to party page it is reverted. What a trash wikipedia has become. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bolterc (talkcontribs) 19:04, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
