Orphaned fair use image (Image:Diearmbanduhr-1-.jpg)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Diearmbanduhr-1-.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image 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 images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable under fair use (see our fair use policy).

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 any fair use images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BetacommandBot 21:30, 10 May 2007 (UTC)

No personal attacks[edit]

Please see Wikipedia's no personal attacks policy. Comment on content, not on contributors; personal attacks damage the community and deter users.

Do not revert those episodes[edit]

They fail WP:EPISODE, and there was a discussion. You are free to present your argument there. TTN 19:38, 15 May 2007 (UTC)

SpongeBob episodes[edit]

  • Please, before reverting the SpongeBob episode articles (which I believe should have never been redirected) discuss here. It is best that we keep away from edit wars. -AMK152(TalkContributionsSend message) 19:48, 15 May 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:GOODBYEWINDOW-1-.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:GOODBYEWINDOW-1-.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. 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 any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 10:53, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

Notability of Kaolin Mushroom Farms[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Kaolin Mushroom Farms, by Vegaswikian (talk · contribs), another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Kaolin Mushroom Farms seems to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not assert the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Kaolin Mushroom Farms, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Please note, this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion, it did not nominate Kaolin Mushroom Farms itself. Feel free to leave a message on the bot operator's talk page if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot. --Android Mouse Bot 2 02:07, 26 June 2007 (UTC)

Your RfA[edit]

I noticed that you blanked your RfA. Instead, you should note below your original statement that you are instead withdrawing, not blank the whole page. Good luck next time around! GoodnightmushTalk 21:56, 10 July 2007 (UTC)

Your RfA[edit]

Sorry your first RfA went so badly. I think you should take some time and get aquainted with Admin functions before you try again. I suggest you check out other people's RfA's. See what it is that is being looked for in an administrator and decide what areas you need to improve in to reach that point.

You said that you were interested in doing anti-vandalism work, yet I notice that in your edit history there is no anti-vandalism experience. I happen to be a recent changes patroller myself and I would happily help you to learn how to fight vandalism. It is a task that would give you some experience on the administrative and maintainance side of Wikipedia. I welcome you to send me a message if you are interested. Trusilver 22:16, 10 July 2007 (UTC)

Actually I do fight vandalism but I usually forget to write it in my edit history and it is on a small scale. ''[[User:Kitia|Kitia'']] 14:00, 11 July 2007 (UTC)

Kaolin Mushroom Farms Nudge[edit]

This is a friendly nudge; about 3 weeks ago, I defended Kaolin Mushroom Farms from being deleted on the basis that a) you didn't want it deleted and b) that I'd help guide you into getting it in shape. But you don't seem to have done any work on it since then. Can I offer any assistance to get you to do a little work on it? Let me know what I can do; it's not really a subject of interest to me, so really, you need to do the work, but I'll be happy to help you make sure it doesn't get deleted next time. --Thespian 10:26, 15 July 2007 (UTC)

Best Friend's Day[edit]

A {{prod}} template has been added to the article Best Friend's Day, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice explains why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may contest 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. Also, please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. 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. If you endorse deletion of the article, and you are the only person who has made substantial edits to the page, please tag it with {{db-author}}. 24.4.253.249 04:48, 24 July 2007 (UTC)

A tag has been placed on Tsuneyo Toyonaga, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article appears to be a repost of material that was previously deleted following a deletion debate, such as articles for deletion. If you can indicate how Tsuneyo Toyonaga is different from the previously posted material, or if you can indicate why this article should not be deleted, I advise you to place the template {{hangon}} underneath the other template on the article, and also put a note on Talk:Tsuneyo Toyonaga saying why this article should stay.

Rebecca Mauleon[edit]

I see you removed the {{copyvio}} tag from Rebecca Mauleon. On the talk page the author of the article says he is her manager. There is no indication (nor does he claim) that he owns the copyright to the text on the website. I think it's still a violation. If the article can be rewritten, she might meet WP:BIO. Oh, and BTW, the correct spelling of her name is Rebeca Mauleon. --Evb-wiki 17:51, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

Fairview, Erie County, Pennsylvania[edit]

Hello there. I see you've just recreated the article. However, I deleted it because it is still very similar to the original article - so similar that it is a derivative work. To escape copyright, you need to write the article completely in your own original words, and use the sources to back the facts contained it. I'll not delete it immediately, but it will be deleted shortly by someone else, or by me within a short period. Good luck, and get in touch if you need a hand. Splash - tk 20:06, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

Hello, again. Now I see you have reverted the trimmed-down article. I explained above why the article won't do in that form - it is still a copyright violation. Please don't do that again, and try to write a new article in your own original words. Actually, you might consider a simple redirect to the suggested merge target? Thanks, Splash - tk 22:43, 17 August 2007 (UTC)

Creating Supercentenarian Articles[edit]

Hi Kitia, nice to see you taking the initiative to create articles like Clara Huhn. Eventually we should have at least one article for the entire top 100, unless the case simply was 'anonymous' and little/no information is available.Ryoung122 02:41, 17 August 2007 (UTC)

Greetings,

Thanks for the update on Gladys Swetland. I'm bewildered as to why this 21-year-old fancies himself so important. There are a lot of supercentenarian articles, and many are aged less than 113. So, I question what the point is here...why go after a defensible target? Ryoung122 23:35, 21 August 2007 (UTC)

Neapolitan Wikipedia[edit]

A {{prod}} template has been added to the article Neapolitan Wikipedia, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice explains why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may contest 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. Also, please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. 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. If you endorse deletion of the article, and you are the only person who has made substantial edits to the page, please tag it with {{db-author}}. P4k 05:40, 26 August 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:26855655-1-.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:26855655-1-.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. 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 any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Jay32183 23:27, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

Image source problem with Image:AElogo-1-.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

This is an automated message from a robot. You have recently uploaded Image:AElogo-1-.jpg. The file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 12:22, 7 September 2007 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. If you believe you received this message in error, please notify the bot's owner.

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Bk windx2-1-.jpg)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Bk windx2-1-.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.

Speedy deletion of Tourism in Saudi Arabia[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Tourism in Saudi Arabia, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia per speedy deletion criterion A1.

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not meet basic Wikipedia criteria may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as an appropriate article, and if you can indicate why the subject of this article is appropriate, you may contest the tagging. To do this, add {{hangon}} on the top of the article and leave a note on the article's talk page explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm its subject's notability under the guidelines.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.Pyrospirit (talk · contribs) 23:30, 28 October 2007 (UTC)

Marie-Rose Mueller[edit]

Sadly, I do think that her death may result in the article being deleted. Coverage needed to be at least three newspapers, and it was only in one. Had she lived to become the state's oldest, coverage may have been sufficient.

However, you could argue that coverage of her 110th and 111th birthdays may also count. Thus, I suggest you find as many articles as you can, and link them to the article.Ryoung122 20:33, 10 November 2007 (UTC)

WP:BIO[edit]

Hi Kitia

Please can you take some tine to study the notability guideline WP:BIO. I have reverted your unmerger of the articles Flossie Page and Gertrude Baines, because neither of these articles meets WP:BIO's requirement of substantive coverage in multiple reliable sources.

These articles which do not meet WP:BIO could be deleted, but I have chosen to take the time to merge them to retain the information there and to give interested editors the opportunity to improve the referencing in order to demonstrate notability. I have objection at all to unmerger if notability has been established per WP:BIO, but if you persist in simply reverting the merger without improving the articles to meet WP:BIO, then I will simply save myself the time and nominate them at AfD.

Your call. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 16:37, 8 December 2007 (UTC)

It's a pity that you prefer to unmerge the articles rather than improve them, but both are now AFDed. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 16:58, 8 December 2007 (UTC)

Canvassing[edit]

Please stop canvassing AFDs, as you did in these edits: [1], [2], [3]. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 14:34, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

PROD tags[edit]

Hi Kitia

It is quite acceptable to remove the {{prod}} tag from an article if you disagree with it. However, per Wikipedia:Proposed_deletion, please note the removal of the tag in the edit summary, and also explain why they disagree with the proposed deletion.

The latest prod you removed without comment was this edit to Elaine Lorillard, but I have seen others before, such as this. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 00:45, 11 December 2007 (UTC)

Elaine Lorillard[edit]

I have reverted your edits to the article Elaine Lorillard, which removed the {{AfD}} tag, despite the clear notice at the top of the page source "Please do not remove or change this AfD message until the issue is settled".

I also notice that none of your contributions use an edit summary. Please use edit summaries to help other editors see what is changed, such as when perusing the history of the page. It's a good idea to set your user preferences (under Editing) to "Prompt me when entering a blank edit summary". --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 10:14, 11 December 2007 (UTC)

Sarah Knauss[edit]

I have reverted your removal of the AfD notice on Sarah Knauss. As it says on the notice "this notice must not be removed, until the discussion is closed". The AfD discussion has not been closed. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 23:53, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

Personbal attacks[edit]

Kitia, please stop making personal attacks.

This allegation of bad faith is the second in the last few days: see also here. Please withdraw these allegations. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 00:16, 13 December 2007 (UTC)

Unsourced material and other problems[edit]

Hi Kitia, I have just removed (for the second time) an alleged date of death for Carmelo Bertolami. This date had been added without any reference, and I had removed it as unsourced. You simply reverted that edit without comment, and without citing a source, so I have removed it again.

WP:BLP is quite clear that this sort of unreferenced material should be removed, and quotes Jimbo Wales "I can NOT emphasize this enough. There seems to be a terrible bias among some editors that some sort of random speculative 'I heard it somewhere' pseudo information is to be tagged with a 'needs a cite' tag. Wrong. It should be removed, aggressively, unless it can be sourced.". WP:V#Burden_of_evidence says quite clearly that "The burden of evidence lies with the editor who adds or restores material. All quotations and any material challenged or likely to be challenged should be attributed to a reliable, published source using an inline citation". Please do not add this material again unless you can cite a reliable source.

At this point, I'm one step away from asking for admin action to be taken against you for disruptive editing. Your talk page and contributions record show a history of editing without edit summaries, copyvios, allegations of bad faith, disruptive use of AfD by renominating articles just closed with a consensus to keep, canvassing of AfD discussions, cut-and-paste moves, multiple instances of content forking, removing AfD notices when AfD discussions are still open, and removing {{prod}} tags without explanation.

Other editors have been generous of their time in explaining to you why these things are unacceptable, but there doesn't seem to be any change in what is not a long-established pattern of disruptive editing. Please don't let this continue to the point where you do find admin action being taken. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 13:39, 14 December 2007 (UTC)

re: comments on Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of Dutch supercentenarians (2nd nomination)[edit]

Hi! While I disagree with deleting the above AfD that you nominated (and have reasoned so on the AfD), User:Dlae's comment was unacceptable. I have removed it and informed the user on User talk:Dlae that WP:NPA must be followed. You handled it very maturely in not responding in kind. Have a nice day! --Storkk (talk) 16:49, 14 December 2007 (UTC)

Kitia, this is getting ridiculous. An identical article was create by you on 8 December, and deleted on 11 December as a copyvio. Why on earth are you creating copyvio articles in the first place, let alone recreating them when they are deleted? --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 21:38, 14 December 2007 (UTC)
Could you please recreate History of Warsaw? I noticed that you complained about it being copyvio, but I got got rid of the copyvio (at least could you state the section I missed?). Besides, it was just pretty much a copy of the history section of Warsaw, so if you are going to attack History of Warsaw you should also attack Warsaw. As a side note, before automaticly deleting a promising article like this, try to improve upon it so that it does not have the issues it states. I will try to if you undelete this. ''[[User:Kitia|Kitia]]'' (talk) 21:47, 14 December 2007 (UTC)
Kitia, the deleted version still contained whole paragraphs directly copied from http://www.luketravels.com/warsaw/history.htm - and for goodness sake, stop blaming other for deleting your copyvios. You created the copyvio article in the first place, you recreated it when it was deleted, so don't complain when it's removed. You had plenty of warning.
If it was just "pretty much a copy of the history section of Warsaw", what on earth were you doing creating a content fork?
I don't know whether you are trying to be disruptive (in which case you are succeeding), or if you simply don't know what you are doing, but either way, please just stop. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 22:05, 14 December 2007 (UTC)

Blocked for disruption[edit]

Stop x nuvola with clock.svg
You have been blocked from editing for a period of 24 hours in accordance with Wikipedia's blocking policy for abuse of editing privileges. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make constructive contributions. If you believe this block is unjustified, you may contest the block by adding the text {{unblock|your reason here}} below.

This block has been imposed after a series of disruptive edits by you, listed above, most recently your restoration of copyvio material removed from Warsaw#History_of_Warsaw (as discussed above and only talk page, it was a clear copyvio of http://www.luketravels.com/warsaw/history.htm ). Because we had previously discussed this, I my be seen as being an involved party, so I will take the issue to WP:NI for review. This may take an hour or two to complete (I need to eat my meal first), but I will make the full report within the next 2 hours. -BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 22:37, 14 December 2007 (UTC)

Clearly a typo by BHG Kitia . I'm sure she means WP:ANI - Galloglass 23:15, 14 December 2007 (UTC)
Yes, I did indeed mean WP:ANI; sorry about the typo.
Sorry too for the delay in going to ANI; it took me a lot longer than I had expected to unravel the nature of the coyvio, and I made it my first priority to see if I could find a clean version of Warsaw#History to restore (see the full story at Talk:Warsaw#History_of_Warsaw_copyvio).
Meanwhile, thanks v much to Mangojuice for filing the ANI report, to which I have now posted my rather long report. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 12:15, 15 December 2007 (UTC)

Kitia (block logactive blocksglobal blocksautoblockscontribsdeleted contribsabuse filter logcreation logchange block settingsunblock)


Request reason:

This block seems to be one that, while only 24 hrs long, is made by User:BrownHairedGirl so she can shut me up in the many AfDs for supercentenarian articles that I oppose but, with her power as an admin, can easily try to find a way to delete the articles anyway. She has made very mean comments as demonstrated above and has acted uncivil to me many times. I must also cite User:Richard Arthur Norton (1958-) in my thinking, as I was looking down BhG's talkpage and saw that she, in bold, yelled to him to get off her talkpage. As well as the famous User:Ryoung122 who was blocked indefinably for much the same charches, much of which he did not commit. I suspect Wikipedia:Requests for Arbitration might be in hand here.

Decline reason:

Kitia, I think you may have misunderstood, but the text you restored to Warsaw appears to be stolen from a copyrighted website. This same text was used by you when you created History of Warsaw twice. The second time I note that you took some effort to change sentence structure and such around a little bit but it was still a copyright violation as it was obviously directly derived from the copyrighted website. This is a decent reason to block someone, especially since you seem to have not been very responsive or understanding about the issue. Yes, I realize (and I'm sure BHG does too) that removing the entire history section of Warsaw is a step backwards. However, sometimes that's necessary, like when the article was stolen. As for the rest, I have no comment. I'm sure she didn't block you to "shut you up" in those AfDs since you already commented in them anyway. Mangojuicetalk 03:50, 15 December 2007 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first and then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page for as long as you are blocked.

Polite suggestion[edit]

Kitia, I'd strongly suggest that you assume good faith even in your block, and remove the accusation that it was done with any malice from your unblock request. The AfDs in question will still be open when the block expires. Please try to keep a cool head, take a breather, and remember that Wikipedia isn't everything. Cheers and good luck, --Storkk (talk) 01:34, 15 December 2007 (UTC) Actually, Storkk, I just noticed that Betsy Baker and Adelia Domingues have been deleted... And I'm not going to be here in 24 hours. ''[[User:Kitia|Kitia]]'' (talk) 01:36, 15 December 2007 (UTC)

I'd still suggest that you remove the accusations in your unblock request, as they won't help you at all and will probably hurt you. Keep a cool head, and come back in 24 hours would be my opinion. --Storkk (talk) 02:30, 15 December 2007 (UTC)
As suggested in my comments at ANI, I think that it would be helpful to Kitia and to everyone else for Kitia to seek mentorship. This talk page reveals a long history of problems in Kitia's editing, and assuming good faith I think that most of them can probably be accounted for as a very young editor's lack of understanding of wikipdia's practises and processes. A mentor who could help explain things to Kitia could avoid these problems recurring, and I hope that Kitia will consider this. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 12:20, 15 December 2007 (UTC)

It should really have been speedy deleted per WP:CSD#G4 as a recreation of deleted content. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 04:59, 16 December 2007 (UTC)

DRV[edit]

That's fine, I don't take it personally. However, just a suggestion: it'll help your case to respond to the reasons I gave for deletion when closing, showing why you feel they were incorrect. Keep in mind that AfDs are not numerical votes but are rather based upon correct interpretation of Wikipedia policy. For example, if there was an AfD with 100 WP:ILIKEIT votes to Keep and 1 correct WP:V issue brought up for Delete, then the correct closure would be a deletion. This case wasn't as open-and-shut as that, of course, but if you bring up a Deletion Review, you'll need to provide some reasons to overturn the decision. Tijuana Brass (talk) 22:37, 16 December 2007 (UTC)

Warsaw again[edit]

Kitia, if you want to split out the history section of the Warsaw article, please start by reading WP:SUMMARY and learn how to do it properly. For about the third time, you have just copied the history section, and left the original place rather than writing a summary to replace it. This is content forking (which is strongly frowned on), so I have again speedy deleted History of Warsaw as a content fork. Please do NOT recreate it unless you are following the proper procedure for splitting out a section of an article. -BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 00:27, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

Harrassment allegations[edit]

Kitia

I have warned you before, about accusations of bad faith, and now I see that you are accusing me of harrassment of both you and of Richard Arthur Norton.

The admin action I took against you has been fully explained at WP:ANI: if you have a complaint, please make it at ANI. As to Richard Arthur Norton, asking someone to get off my talk unless they can stop making false allegations of bad faith is not harassment, it's self-protection.

Please stop this, or I will take your behaviour to WP:ANI again. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 00:40, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

re: User:You've Got Mail![edit]

This edit alleges that you created a sockpuppet account and deliberately disclosed the password of the account. That makes the account a "role" account which is a serious violation of Wikipedia policy. The role account has been indefinitely blocked.

Creating that account and giving out the password is against policy, and you are responsible for the disruption it caused and "because I felt like it" is not an adequate defense.

I created the account to let some anon use the account, which they did. Because I created the account, I am also blocked indefinably. So please unblock. ''[[User:Kitia|Kitia]]'' (talk) 21:16, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

Could you explain, then, why this new user seems to engage in behavior very similar to your own? On Clara Huhn, see [4] and [5]. From Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Gertrude Baines, [6] and [7]. From Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Adelina Domingues, [8] and [9]. From User talk:Bart Versieck, [10] and [11]. From Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Mary Bidwell, [12] and [13] (perhaps even another?). The accounts are very frequently making immediately subsequent edits, in identical threads, parroting each others' views. If you created an account for "some anon," where did this anon request the account? – Luna Santin (talk) 21:50, 17 December 2007 (UTC)
I'll bet that anon just plain signed in. And I think that (s)he watched my edits very closely because I gave him the account. ''[[User:Kitia|Kitia]]'' (talk) 22:09, 17 December 2007 (UTC)
Occam's razor would seem to indicate that "some anon" is you, unless you can indicate a clear set of circumstances which would lead to your creating an account for someone. Hence the question. – Luna Santin (talk) 22:20, 17 December 2007 (UTC)
If you just "gave" some anon an account, why should we unblock you? --Orange Mike | Talk 22:21, 17 December 2007 (UTC)
I created it because I felt like it. And you should unblock me because I want to contribute to Wikipedia. ''[[User:Kitia|Kitia]]'' (talk) 22:24, 17 December 2007 (UTC)
That's unfortunate... I've currently blocked this account indefinitely (see log), pending a more adequate explanation of this incident, or responses to other threads which indicate reform is likely. Please note I do not intend this as an "infinite" block, but rather as a block with no explicitly set expiry, pending community discussion. I've requested feedback on the admin noticeboard here -- though people will likely see posts you make on this talk page, you may wish to compose a response and request that someone post it to AN on your behalf. Should any administrator wish to reconfigure this block in good faith, they are welcome to do so as long as they can explain why. – Luna Santin (talk) 23:19, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

Mentorship suggestion[edit]

Kitia, you may have noticed that I suggested above that you consider mentorship: having a more experienced editor to guide you through the workings of wikipedia an to help steer you out of trouble. I still think that this idea may be useful, so I have posted to the ANI discussion about you to suggest that your block be shortened if you are willing in advance to accept the supervision of a mentor who will help you to edit while staying out of trouble.

Please read Wikipedia:Mentorship and consider this carefully, because although I don't know how my suggestion will be received at ANI, it is the only way I can see that your block could be lifted. I see that this page has been protected because you have been removing some of the replies to your unblock request, but if you seriously want to try this idea, I suggest that you email any of the admins who have participated in this block discussion, and ask for the block to be shortened so that you can return to editing under the guidance of a mentor.

After the sockpuppetry what's happened I don't see any other way that that the indefinite block will be lifted. I can't guarantee that this suggestion will be acceptable to other admins, but it seems to me that it is probably the only way you will be allowed to return. I expect that this idea will not appeal to you right now, so I suggest that you take some time to think about it. Best wishes, --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 11:38, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

More canvassing[edit]

Kitia, you are canvassing again. These two comments [14] [15] were explicitly aimed to encourage "keep" voters to join deletion review debates.

WP:CANVASS is clear that it is unacceptable to try to influence the outcome of a debate by asking for participation only from people who support a particular view: this amounts to votestacking. You have been warned before about this. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 12:57, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

Kitia, please understand that AfDs (and deletion reviews) are not based upon numbers, so bringing in more people to one doesn't help anyway. If you feel strongly about an issue, the best course for you to take is to review the pertinent policies and make a convincing case. Speaking as an admin, it makes no difference to me if there are 50 votes for a keep/delete or 1; what matters is how convincingly policy has been interpreted.
In any case, BHG is correct. Please do not do this in the future. You would do well to spend some more time reading up on Wikipedia policy here, as you've run into a number of issues in the past, as evidenced here. We welcome your presence, but some of the areas you've been involved in require more experience than you have. It'd help to spend some time in the most important part of the wiki - editing - and revisit these interests later. Tijuana Brass (talk) 21:43, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

Removed protection[edit]

Kitia, this page was protected for about thirteen hours, but I have removed the protection so you may respond to the various comments and suggestions above.

Please do not repost the 'unblock' template. Several admins are now watching this page and will see anything you post. If you do place another unblock template on this page chances are that someone will come along and protect it again.

As to the issues at hand. The 'You've Got Mail' account was a bad idea. To me it seems very likely that you were using it to 'double vote' or get a friend to do so, but even if the 'I created it for a random anon' claim is true... that's just as bad. It potentially opens the door for any sort of troll/vandal/stalker. Please don't do that again.

You've done alot of good editing at Wikipedia and I understand how you could be annoyed with seeing some of the things you've done deleted. Unfortunately, that's just the way it goes sometimes. People don't always agree. If you can learn to live with that and go on improving things in the areas where people DO agree then I think you can probably come back and resume editing. --CBD 13:04, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

Reversion on American Pie[edit]

As you have probably heard by now, Wikipedia is not a place to publish original research, so the editors' interpretations of the song "American Pie" cannot be kept. Someone did a lot of hard work bringing this article up to encyclopedic standards, and two fairly authoritative interpretations are linked. Please do not restore the deleted material, as you did on December 8.

If you feel there is a need to preserve some of this material, please discuss on Talk:American Pie. Revert warring will probably lead to dispute resolution. / edg 19:29, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

Regarding my block[edit]

To whomever it may concern:

I have been wrongly blocked recently because of sockpuppetry. It seems that I created the YGM account for my own benefit. That is partially correct and partially not.

First, I created the account to let some anon sign in. I specifically warned them on the page not to vandalise. I recognise that this was a Bad Idea.

What really happened was some of my friends came over my house and used my computer. They signed in as this account and used it mostly for some of the super-c afds that I had been recently voicing my opinion at. The IBYB was a completely different story, as one of my friens who shall not be named created it on my computer instead of being YGM so he could voice his opinion seperately.

It also seems that my young age is an issue. I have been abused for giving it out, and now BhG is asking for mentorship because of it. I can be very mature, but I prefer being silly and immature most of the time. It seems that I can't be productive because of it, but see User:Abdulla Geelah who is younger than me. (User:S-man and User:Cute 1 4 u, both also younger than me, are indef blocked, though I oppose S-man's.)

Also, I only know User:Ryoung122 from Wikipedia. I am not on his mailing list or anything (at least I don't think I am) and just agree with some of his ideas. Now he is indef blocked and his talkpage is protected, so I think I have to be his voice. I'm sure he's reading over this. I got so pissed off seeing BhG tear the super-c articles to threads, so I started accusing her of bad things (not that she hasn't done the same to me). I looked for help, and User:Bart Versiek, the other major contributer in super-c articles, doesn't seem to be editing recently. I just discovered that User:Richard Arthur Norton (1958-) has been helping recently, but most of the AfDs went to the trashcan anyway. Obviously, I took them to WP:DRV, but nothing is getting accomplished simply because I'm not the best person to make a point.

BhG has also seem to have made a stereotype of my editing behavior. I guess that that is because I usually don't bother writing edit summaries or community discussions simply because I want to keep on editing. Anyway, my frustration with her and others was not simply reserved for supr-cs, as evident by History of Warsaw. Now, Warsaw is a huge ciy, bigger than many U.S. cities who have articles on the history. So, I thought I would create an article on it and would expand it soon. A bot accused it of being a copyvio when it was really the other way around. I was about to tell someone this, but I got blocked for that reason.

It also stinks for Zaydra Pena and Jose Luis Aquino (have to go to school) ''[[User:Kitia|Kitia]]'' (talk) 12:05, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

Could you explain about the other accounts you also created Kitia? - Galloglass 13:48, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

I was going to get to that, but I had to go to school. I lost my password in September 2006, and created thoe accounts so I could esume editing. I eventually found my password and went back to being plain Kitia. ''[[User:Kitia|Kitia]]'' (talk) 21:15, 19 December 2007 (UTC)
I was thinking of the I'll bust your beak! (talk · contribs) acc and the one created for RYOUNG to use several weeks ago. - Galloglass 14:04, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

Kitia, your latest story of how the sockpuppet accounts were used is not very plausible:

  1. these alleged friends appear to have instantly found the AfDs in which you had participated and figured out how to vote on them
  2. both accounts were used not just once, but several times over a period, which underlines the claim that this all happened at one get-together. (You've Got Mail! (talk · contribs) was used for two separate periods on 8 December, again on 10 December and on 16 December, while I'll bust your beak! (talk · contribs) edited over two separate periods: 0141 to 0222 on December and 0028-0107 on 10 December.)
  3. Finally each period of editing the by sockpuppets is either immediaely preceded or followed (in some cases both) by a period of editing by you, e.g:
    1. Kitia did this edit at 17:41, 8 December 2007 and this edit at 17:51 , but in between those times, You've Got Mail! performed three edits[16], [17], [18]
    2. The same happened again later that day: Kitia edited at 22:12[19], then YGM did five edits starting at 22:14 [20] and finishing at 22:39[21], following which you edited again at 22:41[22].
    3. The same thing happened again in the early hours of December 10 and the evening of December 10, with I'll bust your beak! (talk · contribs) joining in on each occasion
    4. also in the evening of December 16, when Kitia edited until 22:13[23], and then YGM commented on the DRVS you had opened from 22:43[24] to 23:22[25]

Your story asks us to believe that your friends were around your place on four separate occasions, on each of which they logged you out, logged in under your role accounts, and immediately tracked the both the discussions in which you had participated and some earlier ones, and !voted the same way as you. That does seem possible if you were standing over them telling them what to do, but doing this on four separate occasions seems less likely than that the possibility hat all these edits were performed you. Either way, though, the accounts were either sockpuppets or metapuppets, nd neither is acceptable.

I think you have misunderstood the purpose of my comments on your age. If you were older, I would have simply assumed that you understood the impropriety everything that you were doing, and had decided to make mischief instead, in which case I would have unreservedly supported an indefinite block. However, it seemed to me that because of your age, you might not have understood why this sort of disruption is unacceptable, and I thought that if you were willing to accept mentorship, you might be able to benefit from the guidance of a more experienced editor and learn how to edit constructively. However, that depends on whether you want to learn how working constructively on wikipedia. You have been commendably honest in saying "I can be very mature, but I prefer being silly and immature most of the time" ... and the problem is that wikipedia is the wrong place for that. If you want to be to be silly and immature, that's fine, and there are plenty of web forums and other projects where you will be welcomed doing just that, but wikipedia is a serious project of working co-operatively to build an encyclopedia. Silliness and immaturity don't help create an encyclopedia.

So it seems to me that it's up to you. If you want to be mature and sensible, to work co-operatively (by such things as using edit summaries, and discussing disagreements rather than just reverting) and take the time to read up on wikipedia policies and guidelines, then I hope that CBD is right and you will be allowed to resume editing. It's your choice. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 13:53, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

On those days, we took turns on my computer, and I told them of your merciless destroyance of the super-c articles. They had heard of Wikipedia (who hasn't?) and knew a bit about it (the rest I clued them in on). They just agreed with me most of the time. Now that their accounts (and mine) are blocked, they haveedited under a different name (I forget) on other computers. Regarding the sillyness, on Wikipedia I have remained semi-mature, but I think that people need to lighten up more. I have also made many constructive edits if you look at my contribs. Anyway, these huge paragraphs are me just asking to be unblocked. That's it. ''[[User:Kitia|Kitia]]'' (talk) 21:15, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

Nothing important Well Kitia, you are certainly a real friend to your real-life friends. You made a big gamble on setting up other accounts and letting them use your computer. The gamble was in your huge sacrifice you made, to have an indefinite block for your friends. They owe you one, especially if they setup their own Wikipedia accounts someday. You sacrificed your indefinite block for however many of them. I hope they will value you for that if they ever become experienced Wikipedia users.

You said "so I think I have to be his voice" for Robert Young, regarding his indefinite block. You certainly don't have to. We've talked on the phone about you. I'm sure you have his sympathy. You have my sympathy. Don't feel that bad about Robert Young's indefinite block either - it did him 1 good thing, so he could spend more time working on his thesis at university. I somewhat hope you'll be unblocked in a year. At the most, I hope you'll be unblocked at your 18th birthday. Neal (talk) 05:27, 20 December 2007 (UTC).

My 18th birthday? That's three whole years from now! I was thinking more along the lines of before Christmas or preferably today. PS I'm adding Category(removing : so this will work)Requests for unblock to this page even though it doesn't have the template because it will probably be reverted and this page will be protected as it was before. Anyway, what do you mean by "Nothing important"? ''[[User:Kitia|Kitia]]'' (talk) 22:50, 20 December 2007 (UTC)

Request reason:

OK, I have repeated this over and over again so many times I am just going to highlight some details:
  1. My indef block (and, as of recently, indef page protection) is part of a very important case involving myself, Ryoung122, and a couple of other users vs. a few admins, mostly BrownHairedGirl, and that the only way to resolve this is through dispute resolution, probably RFAR
  2. I was blocked for sockpuppetry when it was really me and my friends on my computer. I have now realised this is meatpuppetry, and I'm sorry. Anyway, that was two months ago, and to submit requests to be unblocked I had to create socks because my e-mail has not been working properly.
I know I really haven't gotten very far into the matter, but I simply request that myself and Ryoung122 be unblocked for sake of an upcoming arbitration case, which seems to be the only option untried.

Decline reason:

If what you mean here is that you want to appeal your block to Arbcom, the proper way to do that is to email one of the members of the Arbitration committee or an Arbcom clerk, rather than for you to be unblocked and file the request in the normal way. See WP:ARBCOM for a list of active Arbitrators. Mangojuicetalk 03:51, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first and then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page for as long as you are blocked.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Before mentioning e-mail in your review of my request, please read the whole thing. Thank you.

Request reason:

Mangojuice, I appreciate your support, but you obviously mustn't have read my entire request. I could not e-mail the arbcom because my e-mail has not been working properly.

Decline reason:

I did miss that. Still, this is the requirement. What you should do if your email isn't working and you don't want to wait for it to be fixed is to register a new email account and use that one. This kind of appeal really has to take place via e-mail, and your email not working doesn't mean you can be unblocked for this. Mangojuicetalk 16:08, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

Request reason:

Not really an unblock of me rather than at least an unsalt of User:S-man, if not unblock. You can look at his talk page to see the madness of it. The childish Secret Vandalism Invasion happened over a year ago, and it was complete rubbish. Here's yey another tidbit about how amazingly mean some admins can be.

Decline reason:

Since it's not really an unblock request... I'll just state that considering the amount of sweat you have generated by your behaviour, I don't see what the project would gain from an unblock. — -- lucasbfr talk 11:31, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

Request reason:

Wow, I feel like saying something obnoxious right here. First off, I didn't generate the sweat, BrownHairedGirl did. And since she has admin powers, she automatically gets more respect than me. Second, how the project would gain from my unblock: Just see my contributions. And third, I didn't even ask to be unblocked, that will take place through the arbcom, just to let S-man have his fair chance.

Decline reason:

If you aren't requesting to be unblock, stop using the unblock template. Mangojuice has laid out the appropriate course of action above. Please don't loose your opportunity here by continually posting unblock requests without a valid reason. Doing so could be seen as disruptive and could result in this page being reprotected. If User:S-man wishes to be unblocked, he/she should follow the appropriate procedures, you should not be agitating on his./her behalf. Gwernol 21:59, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Template:Ville de Côte d'Ivoire[edit]

A tag has been placed on Template:Ville de Côte d'Ivoire requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section T3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a deprecated or orphaned template. After seven days, if it is still unused and the speedy deletion tag has not been removed, the template will be deleted.

If the template is intended to be substituted, please feel free to remove the speedy deletion tag and please consider putting a note on the template's page indicating that it is substituted so as to avoid any future mistakes (<noinclude>{{transclusionless}}</noinclude>).

Thanks. --MZMcBride (talk) 03:49, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

George Steptoe Washington[edit]

Nuvola apps important yellow.svg

Another editor has added the {{prod}} template to the article George Steptoe Washington, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but the editor doesn't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and has explained why in the article (see also Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not and Wikipedia:Notability). Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia or discuss the relevant issues at its talk page. If you remove the {{prod}} template, the article will not be deleted, but note that it may still be sent to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

Unspecified source for Image:9581-1-.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg

Thanks for uploading Image:9581-1-.png. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, then you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, then their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 15:29, 28 March 2008 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. MECUtalk 15:29, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

To everyone[edit]

I would like to thank everyone at Wikipedia for creating such a project. I am sorry to anyone who I have offended during my stay here. However, my indef block makes it hard (in fact, impossible!) to do any real editing. The ammount of opposition I have received is incredible, and I know this is not an excuse for my disruption, but I would like to thank everyone who has supported me, including that IP who even requested an unblock! I got caught up in disruption and sockpuppetry to try to resolve some of the cases at the massive supercentenarian debate. I can understand how some outsiders have prejudice on my edits, thinking that I was a horrible editor. I can forgive them, for I in the heat of the moment did become a pretty uncivil user. However, my editing was much wider in scope than super-cs, and I promise that, if unblocked, I will never continue the disruption that I must've started. I once suggested that I could perhaps file an arb req against BHG; however, I have abandoned all hope as she is held much highly than myself. I would truly doubt that I will ever be unblocked, but I will simply try to make up for the errors I have made. In addition, I will add the {{helpme}} temp in case someone can help me correct my wrongs:

Template:Tnullhelpme

Good for you! Perhaps I'll be unblocked in a year or so. I guess I was kind of disruptive with the micronations fiasco, though I apologise for my bad behavior. The only sock accounts I used were self-admitted when this page was protected and I had no other way to communicate. I do not want to communicate by e-mail since I know noone will believe me. Perhaps you could get that admin to help me. I've reformed. ''[[User:Kitia|Kitia]]'' (talk) 05:12, 18 July 2008 (UTC)


HI Kitia![edit]

I have returned to Wikipedia, as of August 27, 2008. Thanks for the (mis)guided support. I note that I never asked you to create a talk page for me. One thing that you need to understand is reverse psychology...making repeated requests for an unblock, after just being denied, is a sure way to stay blocked. Going away for a while, thinking about your actions, agreeing to reform, then requesting to return a new and more experienced editor, is a strategy that may work. You just have to believe in yourself but not push things. Don't forget Wikipedia is not the only way to edit: may I recommend

http://gerontology.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page

where the rules are a little more lenient, and the content is tailored to a particular subject matter (in this case, supercentenarians).

Sincerely, Robert Young Ryoung122 12:16, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Kit0395137195-1-.gif)[edit]

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).

Proposed deletion of Islam in San Marino[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Islam in San Marino, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

Unsourced, and has no indication that Islam even exists in San Marino. There's no content to merge. This seems to exist for the sole purpose of having an article for every country in Islam by country.

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.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{dated prod}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist.

Orphaned non-free image File:WhoPutThatHairnewcarousel-1-.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:WhoPutThatHairnewcarousel-1-.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image 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 images 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 "file" 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 "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Courcelles 04:03, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Elsa Moberg[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Elsa Moberg has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

No sources. Unencyclopedic. Relied exclusively on two putative "references" that were not obviously about Elsa Moberg and that are raw data maintained by gerontology researchers and longevity hobbyists. Neither is a reliable source. What's left is a name, birthday, a guesstimate for date of death and unsourced statements about where the subject lived. I deleted unnecessary, and unencyclopedic info, and focus on, another "record-holder". The focus in many longevity bios, on "record-holding" by nationality, occupation, blood type or what-have-you is unencyclopedic. The WP:WALLEDGARDEN needs pruning.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.
