A new reference tool
Hello Books & Bytes subscribers. There is a new Visual Editor reference feature in development called Citoid. It is designed to "auto-fill" references using a URL or DOI. We would really appreciate you testing whether TWL partners' references work in Citoid. Sharing your results will help the developers fix bugs and improve the system. If you have a few minutes, please visit the testing page for simple instructions on how to try this new tool. Regards, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 18:47, 10 April 2015 (UTC)
Hi Jim, I know you sometimes get involved in speedy deletion decisions and I wondered if you could rescue American Tarot Association before it gets speedily deleted. The author asked for a mentor through the new Co-op system and I have been appointed, so I took it upon myself to try to demonstrate notability for the association before the article is deleted. I have found two book sources mentioning it and really do not think the article is a good candidate for speedy deletion. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 05:57, 14 April 2015 (UTC)
- That was a quick response, thanks. It must be quite off-putting for a new editor to have their contributions treated that way. I will try to get the
creator to improve the article along the lines you suggest. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 06:22, 14 April 2015 (UTC)
Hello I wanted to create a new page for Kaakie but I learnt you deleted an article of hers. Please what is the way forward?--Rberchie (talk) 21:16, 14 April 2015 (UTC)
Hello User:Jimfbleak I want to create the above aricle too.Please is it possible you restore or move the deleted one to my userpage so I can improve it or is it possible to start all over again?Regards--Rberchie (talk) 21:21, 14 April 2015 (UTC) talk to me? So I wanted to know can I start a new article?
Hasty speedy deletion?
You speedily deleted under A7 the page "Improved urban agriculture" which I had prodded on page patrol earlier. I do not think A7 applies; even if no indication of importance is present, WP:A7 only applies to a real person, individual animal(s), organization, web content or organized event, and "improved urban agriculture" is neither an organization nor an event.
Of course that page ought to be deleted, eventually, but it is no reason to abuse the CSD in my view.
Best regards, Tigraan (talk) 16:47, 15 April 2015 (UTC)
- Tigraan, fair enough, restored now. I guess it was so obviously a school essay that I got carried away, sorry Jimfbleak - talk to me? 05:31, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
Dear Jim, You deleted my nascent Wikipedia page on G.H.R.Parkinson – understandably citing copyright violation with his obituary posted on the University of Reading’s page: http://www.reading.ac.uk/internal/staffportal/news/articles/spsn-628995.aspx
Together with Parkinson’s daughter, Sally, I am the author of that page as well (my name appears at the bottom of the obituary), so no copyright is being violated. I’m keen to see the page back up and running as soon as possible, since the family have recently buried their father, and this page is meant to be part of my Department’s tribute to him. Can you let me know what I’d need to do to hasten its resuscitation?

Hi Jimfbleak, Would I be able to get the Somaly Mam Foundation page userfied? I'm a little to surprised to see it speedily deleted. I remember it as being very biased and needing work but not unambiguous advertising. -- haminoon (talk) 07:22, 22 April 2015 (UTC)
Hi Jimfbleak, please let me know what's the reason of deleting the page named Alan, Chan Yau Kin, we created this page not out of unambiguous advertising, but to let more people around the world know more about this renowned designer and his works... any ways i can do to remain the page? Thank you... email@example.com CamilleCC Chan (talk) 03:10, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
Hi Jimfbleak, thank you for your reply. We would like to rephrase the articles. However, we couldn't access the page because it says the article has been deleted. Could you advise how i can access that article? Thanks. CamilleCC Chan (talk) 08:42, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
Hello Jim The article is ready in the sandbox firstname.lastname@example.org Smuhavi (talk) 09:27, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
Please be aware that my page which you deleted entitled "Signature Entertainment" which was a work in progress was in no effect unambiguous advertising. It was simply a page of facts about a company of which i wanted to complete. You seem a bit of a jobsworth to me, how exactly would i have to word things for you to be happy with them then? 126.96.36.199 (talk) 12:21, 23 April 2015 (UTC)rikmaster501 — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 12:19, 23 April 2015 (UTC)

Deletion of Article
Dear Jim, Can you please let me know why the page on Dinesh Singh Vice-chancellor of Delhi University was deleted? Was it not possible to fix issues if there were any rather than to delete it? Best, 184.108.40.206 (talk) 13:15, 26 April 2015 (UTC)Animesh
- (talk page stalker) Jim, I've compared the deleted revisions and it looks to me like this website was rather a backcopy of our article. Note the date of the post and all the wikilinks in the blog text. So I think we can safely restore the article. De728631 (talk) 13:49, 26 April 2015 (UTC)
- 220.127.116.11, De728631. Yes, looks like that's the case, now restored. Thanks for checking Jimfbleak - talk to me? 15:34, 26 April 2015 (UTC)
Wiki of pharmacology
The user Wiki of pharmacology seems to be using their user talk page for the same purposes that they were blocked for; I'm not sure if that merits removing talk page access or not but I felt you should know 331dot (talk) 22:42, 26 April 2015 (UTC)
