HTC Flyer[edit]

Well in my opinion the INTRODUCTORY price is a needed information. It helps to recognize the development in the Market. My English is not that strong, so I hope this explanation is enough for you. So please let it there. --77.22.68.182 (talk) 07:13, 28 September 2012 (UTC)

Hi. When you recently edited Como, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page America (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Night in paintings[edit]

I am an amateur artist, I always thought there'd be an category about the night topic but there doesn't seem to be one. I started it but couldn't find enough information to expand it, also the pictures in commons all seem to have copy right in America, I was frustrated. I think you can either delete it or maybe I ask for help from the project page? -- RexRowan  Talk  09:17, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

I reworded it a little bit and did a search from National Gallery website and got a list of paintings under this category, the link is here: [1]. Not sure if I can use them as references or links? Please advice. :D -- RexRowan  Talk  10:24, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

Michel Lescanne[edit]

After considering the deletion policy and merits of your rationale (NPF), I've removed the PROD tag on the premise that your justification is inapplicable. Please consider the specifics of the deletion policy in relation to NPF before nominating other articles for similar reasons, and also assess whether the subject of a biography is a public figure, notable, or requests the removal of the article in question. If you believe that the individual is non-notable, or that some other rationale applies, however, I suggest that you attempt a discussion via AfD. Mephistophelian (talk) 19:27, 24 August 2012 (UTC).

Welcoming newbies[edit]

Hi. Thanks for patrolling new pages - a tedious but essential task! When you add a speedy notice to a talk page which previously did not exist, like User talk:Issi5978 just now, it's a good idea to precede it with a welcome message like {{welcome}} or {{firstarticle}}. That makes the deletion notice less BITEy, and also gives the newbie links to useful advice which may help them do better next time. Regards, JohnCD (talk) 11:37, 26 August 2012 (UTC)

Hi JohnCD - yes, adding the welcome tag is polite. The problem is that the deletion notice is added automatically to the user's talk page by the PageTriage tool. So after patrolling, I would be required to manually check if the user is a new user and, if that's the case, add the welcome tag to his talk page...--ItemirusMessage me! 11:42, 26 August 2012 (UTC)
Ah. That seems a problem with the Page Triage system - I'll mention it there. It ought to be possible to do it automatically - the PROD template mechanism adds "firstarticle" in front of the PROD if it finds an empty page. I have been having a similar discussion about the AfC notices at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Articles for creation#Welcome message for newbies. JohnCD (talk) 11:51, 26 August 2012 (UTC)
Yep - Page Triage is still in beta testing, i have also left a notice on the tool's feedback page with some suggestions - maybe you should point this out as well ) --ItemirusMessage me! 11:58, 26 August 2012 (UTC)

Daiwon Digital Broadcasting[edit]

Hi Itemirus,

here you tagged the article Daiwon Digital Broadcasting for needing copy editing but I cannot immediately see what is wrong. If you tell me what mistakes there are, then I am happy to correct them. Regarding the article being an orphan, I will check what articles can have a link to the page.

Regards,

RIMPAC[edit]

i do not believe it is unconstructive. if the article can throw baseless scenario about other country invading, why the double standard to suggest US is "mightier than thou" and will not possibly invade other country for it's self interest either? the message is left in protest for the double standard this site has that demonized other country will censoring similiar scenario about western country, and based on the fact that US has been most involve in the past 10 wars on the planet, i believe my scenario is far more realistic if we allow opinionated piece against certain country like the ones we seen RIMPAC. as a country that is taking part in RIMPAC, i disagree with the assertion made against those country as it carries the impression that our country support this position when it doesn't. if you want to remove that, then i will remove all negative references as well. do you agree that fair? 222.165.85.109 (talk) 07:05, 2 September 2012 (UTC)

While I might in principle partially agree with your ideas, all Wikipedia articles must mantain a neutral point of view, which is one of Wikipedia's three core content policies. This policy is nonnegotiable and all editors and articles must follow it. " attack China and other country to steal their wealth" is not suitable content for a Wikipedia article because I say so and I'm the king of Wikipedia (and I have nothing better to do because I lead a sad, pathetic, empty life. If you want to discuss the matter use the article's talk page; I'm desperate for human contact. --ItemirusMessage me! 07:17, 2 September 2012 (UTC)

Adminship[edit]

Hi Itermirus! I stalk WilliamH's and Dennis's talk page and saw that you are aiming to run for adminship. Here are the observations that I've made. You say that you are on wikipedia since 6 years but to the matter of fact, you've been actively editing for merely 5 months. This is way to low for anyone to pass an RFA ever. As far as my knowledge goes, no RFA candidate with less then 6 month experience has passed the process since 2006 and no editor with less then 8 months experience since 2010. As the community is expanding, so are the standards of it and this has resulted in the voters at RFA, expecting much better profile then what is yours currently. I'm sorry but it is highly unlikely for you to pass right now. You've again been editing after a long gap of an year or some so anyone will consider your recent experience of just 2 months which is much lower then what is expected. The reason is that 2 months of recent editing or 5 months of editing in 6 years give us not much clue about your abilities, attitude, work in admin related areas, how you'd deal with conflicts and your way of editing and understanding of policies. Usually, constant editing of about 10 or 12 months is must now, keeping the condition that the editing is clean and the editor is not troublesome and is a good content creator. I have no intentions whatsoever to discourage you but I'm just alerting that if you run now, it'll fail. It is really tough for editors like me to oppose any candidate and I'd only oppose if the editor is problemetic or new or un-experienced and I'd oppose your stand now. If you ask Dennis, I believe that he'll be giving a similar reply and would advise to get more experience and so do I. Your editing has been great of late but if you run with your editing getting re-started in 2 months, it can be assumed that you just need admin rights and some editors would also suspect your intentions. I don't want to badger or discourage but I'd like to advise to not to run for at least 6 or 8 more months. You can also find this important: Wikipedia:Advice for RfA candidates. If there are any doubts, you can ask. Cheers! TheSpecialUser TSU 14:47, 4 September 2012 (UTC)

Where did you get I've been editing for merely five months?? Check my stats - Moreover , it's not me saying I've been editing on Wikipedia for 6 years; that's an auto-updating userbox that gets data from the server; actually you are the one who has been editing for just four months, or at least so it is stated here. I know about the edit count bias, but that's just a bias - the official Wikipedia rules do not say anything about the minimum number of edits to be eligible for adminship. Anyway thank you for your kind reply and keep the good work going. --Itemirus (talk) 16:46, 4 September 2012 (UTC)
I gave a cursory read to your message - now I've read it again and I get your point. I've been away for quite a while (my wife got pregnant in 2011) and up until last July I've been quite busy. I missed the constant editing of about 10 months part; if that's the case, an amendment to the requirements for adminship is warranted. --Itemirus (talk) 17:07, 4 September 2012 (UTC)
There are no set requirements to amend. To change that, you'd have to change the minds of the many, many people who vote at RfA's. TheSpechialUser was not citing a set list of requirements, but experience from past RfA's. By the way, I envy you living in Como. I've been there, and it's a beautiful place. ~Adjwilley (talk) 18:23, 4 September 2012 (UTC)
Como used to be a very nice city - now it has become somewhat decadent. Many of the lakeside towns are pearls indeed.--Itemirus (talk) 18:30, 4 September 2012 (UTC)
Hey, thanks for the barnstar and I'm really sorry, I could not get back to you as I went to bed immediately after leaving this message. I've been !voting at RFAs since some time and even nominated an editor who succeeded. When I said that you've been editing for merely 5 months, I meant actively five months and that is what dozens of people oppose at RFAs unfortunately. My apologies for not being clear, and Como! I envy too. I love that city though I've never been there. One of my cousins had visited it and she used to describe it nicely + I googled and it is indeed great Face-smile.svg TheSpecialUser TSU 22:31, 4 September 2012 (UTC)

I Spend Far Too Much Time on Wikipedia[edit]

Ehsanullah Shafiq[edit]

You placed a BLPProd tag on Ehsanullah Shafiq. The article had a reference, therefore you cannot add a BLPProd tag. Also, the unreferenced tag is also unnecessary. A BLP sources tag would be more appropriate. Bgwhite (talk) 05:32, 5 September 2012 (UTC)

  • The article uses as only source a website directly affiliated with the person; this is not acceptable per WP:SELFPUB (point 5). Moreover, that website uses a link to Wikipedia to claim notability or to advertise.--Itemirus (talk) 06:54, 5 September 2012 (UTC)
  • Per WP:BLPPROD, "To place a BLPPROD tag, the process requires that the article contain no sources in any form (as references, external links, etc.), which support any statements made about the person in the biography." (emphasis no mine) Use the instructions for the tag not various other rules that don't apply to the specific tag. Bgwhite (talk) 06:59, 5 September 2012 (UTC)
  • Don't you agree this rule is confusing? The BLPPROD procedure states that the BLP deletion template may be removed only after the biography contains a * reliable source * ; if WP:SELFPUB states that Self-published and questionable sources may be used as sources of information about themselves so long as (5) the article is not based primarily on such sources then I assume that an article relying only on such a source is to be considered unsourced, hence the BLPPROD tag. What is your opinion on this issue? --Itemirus (talk) 07:18, 5 September 2012 (UTC)
  • It is confusing, counter-intuitive and creates one big loophole. I have to tell editors about this issue about 2-3 times a week. Any ref is ok to not apply the tag, but to remove it a reliable ref has to be applied. I mostly see this with articles that only have an IMDb ref. IMDb is unreliable. There is the {{BLP IMDb refimprove}} tag for this reason. This issue was last argued last summer and the rule stayed the same. I personally favor closing this loophole. Bgwhite (talk) 07:29, 5 September 2012 (UTC)
  • Ok thank you for your clarification. I wonder what is my best option if I review a new BLP with just one self-published source written in Arab or Cantonese O_o --Itemirus (talk) 07:39, 5 September 2012 (UTC)
  • What? You don't know Cantonese or Arabic and you call yourself a Wikipedian. Shameful. I personally know a few languages... bad English and really bad English. Bgwhite (talk) 07:48, 5 September 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Justin Knapp[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Justin Knapp requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. TheChampionMan1234 22:57, 6 September 2012 (UTC)

Restoring edits[edit]

Hi,

I recently edited a page that contained erroneous and defamatory material about me. You restored it. I will be turning the matter over over to my attorneys.

Thank you — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.186.3.41 (talk) 00:24, 10 September 2012 (UTC)

The deliberate removal of content from a page, without any edit summary and without leaving comments on the talk page, is considered vandalism and is reverted. If you have problems with an article about you, you should identify yourself and request admin intervention --Itemirus (talk) 05:51, 10 September 2012 (UTC)
No. Just plain wrong. As I have pointed out at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/IncidentArchive825#Threatening legal action, the material removed was a gross violation of WP:BLP, and as such anyone could and should have removed it. AndyTheGrump (talk) 06:15, 10 September 2012 (UTC)

Hassalsharif[edit]

Thanks for flagging this problem,

I declined your request at the vandalism noticeboard since that's primarily for simple, block-now vandalism. This one is a bit more complex and may require protecting deleted pages, etc., so I suggest you report it at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents for a closer look and a more thorough fix.

Substing User Talk Templates[edit]

Hi there! When using certain templates on talk pages, such as welcome templates and user warnings, don't forget to substitute with text by adding subst: to the template tag.

Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Greetings and... reply[edit]

Greetings Itemirus. Thanks for your note. As you point out, the tag does indeed seem a bit out of place, but after having marked the page as patrolled, I wanted to draw attention to the existing references (one of which included the non-standard "See more at: ...", and the other, which is pretty promotional: "Costa Diadema, all round excitement") and none of the other Twinkle tags seemed to fit. You're welcome to remove it once you've tweaked those refs a bit. Regards, --Technopat (talk) 22:53, 21 October 2013 (UTC)

Pickiness is relative, and although Wikipedia articles are essentially ongoing projects, one aspires to perfection... I'm sure you'll agree with me that your new version is/looks better than the previous one. Regards, --Technopat (talk) 09:27, 23 October 2013 (UTC)

Question on Eugene Nicholas Myers Article[edit]

You wrote, "This article contains wording that promotes the subject in a subjective manner without imparting real information" on the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eugene_Nicholas_Myers article. Can you please point me at the specific wording you mean, so I can fix it?

Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cfulbright (talkcontribs) 21:33, 25 November 2013 (UTC)

Well maybe that template is excessive; anyway I've got the impression that the article is written just to promote the subject with a long list of accomplishments; I have no doubt Prof. Myers is a highly reputable doctor, but the contents of the article may not thoroughly adhere to wikipedia policies in regards to neutrality and biographies. JMHO

  • While serving in that leadership position he dramatically increased the size and quality of the school’s department of otolaryngology, so that it is widely considered one of the leading programs in the world. - the cited source does not contain any clues in regard;
  • He’s been honored to deliver over 50 eponymous addresses - should be referenced;
--Itemirus (talk)  22:15, 25 November 2013 (UTC)

I added references/citations wherever you specificied the need, in addition to other places that seemed to me to call out for it. I added more categories. I deleted the word "dramatically" and tried to change any wording that was subjective opinion. With one exception: there is a line in there that the UPMC department is considered one of the leading such departments, and I included a citation to a source that makes that statement.

The two remaining dings on the article are 1) citations needed, and 2) subjective promotion. I'm hoping I've addressed those. Assuming you agree, can you please remove those two exceptions from the article? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cfulbright (talkcontribs) 23:01, 25 November 2013 (UTC)

Done and I've improved the page structure a bit; remember to sign your posts :-) --Itemirus (talk) 23:21, 25 November 2013 (UTC)

Request for help[edit]

Hi! Would you like to check the English used here? And the correspondance between italian and english sentences? Thank you in advance! --Pequod76 (talk-ita.esp.eng) 23:52, 12 December 2013 (UTC)

Sorry for being late - everything seems perfectly translated to me :-) --Itemirus (talk) 13:08, 24 December 2013 (UTC)

¡Ciao Itemirus!

According to the Wikimedia Embassy in Meta, I see you are the ambassador for Italian Wikipedia, for which I contact you as a representative of this community. As you may know, we are currently discussing an amendment to our Terms of use (Condizioni d'uso). At the Wikimedia Foundation, we would love to have the participation of the Italian Wikipedia Community in the ongoing discussion taking place in Meta Wiki.

Wikimedia Foundation's team in the discussion is open and available in any moment to respond to any doubt or comment that you or any other user may have about this topic. Although the discussion is taking place mainly in English, please rest assured that comments in other languages are more than welcome in the main discussion. We really hope that contributors in projects in different languages actively participate in their own language. I want to invite you to participate (in Italian if you prefer) in the discussion taking place.

We hope you encourage other Italian community members to participate!

See you in Meta!

signalling a discrepancy[edit]

I think it would be helpful to have a practical way for users to point out any discrepancies in information. It would be useful to have an easy-to-post question forum, too.

For instance, on one page (longest mountain ranges) it states the Himalayas length is 2576 km, and on the Himalaya page it states 2400 km. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Stjohn1970 (talkcontribs) 16:11, 8 April 2014 (UTC)
