Speedy deletion notice on my talk page[edit]

Hi Largoplazo. I was just wondering why you left that speedy deletion notice for Call centre software on my talk page? I didn't create it... --Krenair (talkcontribs) 14:13, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

The notice is left by an automated process that looks up the creator of the article. I think the article today was created today by someone who was spamming, and moving articles from one place to another. It might have been some article you created a long time ago that he moved to that location, I really don't know. Sorry. —Largo Plazo (talk) 14:28, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi Largoplazo,

You have just removed Snaptrax wikipedia page and I would like to know why?

Media all over the world would like to access information and we providing that through Wikipedia. We are also launching the product globally tomorrow and since deletion our website @ snaptrax.co has been reopened.

I have revised twice two remove any advertisement style copy and it is all straight fact about product, where it is located.

Please reply asap or can you remove the page completely.

Hello. I'm afraid this is an example of why the guidelines on conflicts of interest are important. "Baseball caps are worn frequently, and by many, and by incorporating this blue-tooth technology, Snaptrax provides an unrivalled host of advantages" smacks of "you potential financial backers should want in on this and you potential customers will love what these will do for you". You don't see this?
Do you think "Snaptrax provides a durable product, which is built to move no matter what the forecast may be" isn't promotional?
Anyway, you've just made it explicit you are using Wikipedia to serve your own business purposes, as your own communication outlet. It isn't that: Wikipedia is not your web host. There's no reason why the media would be looking here for your answers to their questions, because that's not Wikipedia is for. If the media are looking at Wikipedia at all, it's to find the sort of information that Wikipedia is supposed to carry on its topics: neutral information posted by unbiased parties based on, and supported by references to, reliable sources independent of the topics. Your best bet is to answer their questions on your own website.
As for Pebble, I haven't looked at the article, but if it is also a problem article, then see the essay on how the existence of other problem articles isn't justification.
I just looked at Pebble (watch). The number one thing about the article is that from the very beginning the article established the notability of its topic, observing that it was the subject of the then most successful Kickstarter campaign, and documenting this with an article from Forbes Magazine. The thing is, even if the article on Snaptrax were written neutrally by an unrelated person, I haven't found evidence that it meets the notability guidelines. As far as online coverage is concerned, a Google search didn't turn up many hits and, while I didn't review all of them, the ones I scanned didn't seem to meet the criteria. —Largo Plazo (talk) 02:59, 23 July 2014 (UTC)

Chris Arpad[edit]

Hi there. I see your name on a notice for the attempt to delete the article Chris Arpad. How did that not get deleted? Where's the record of the rationale? It was one of the most ludicrous bunk articles I've ever seen, including his entire high school resume of working at gas stations and grocery stores! I just cut it down to at least remotely notable content in an attempt to see if anything actually notable was ever there at all. If so, it seems like it would just barely be by the slightest amount, and only in his original Kansas region long ago and not where he has resided for a long time in California. Thank you! — Smuckola (Email) (Talk) 05:48, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi. The article did get deleted: [1]. I don't remember what it looked like at the time I submitted it for deletion, but I tagged it as a G2 deletion, as a test page, so it must not look the way it looked when it was created the second time around, because I wouldn't have tagged the recreation as a test page. With the recreation, I got as far as noticing that the title was a poor choice, so I moved it, but that's as far as I paid attention to it at the time. —Largo Plazo (talk) 08:55, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for catching my screw-up![edit]

Deletion of Google Public Alerts[edit]

Hi, you left on my talk page about the speedy deletion of the page I created. Unfortunately, I left on the page's talk page about how I think about it, and I responded to you on my talk page about the story. Thelogoontherun (talk) 01:57, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia rules[edit]

Hello! (I replied to your message on my talk page). I've a question about Wikipedia rules not in English version but in other versions, what if they weren't neutral when Translating articles and used wrong names?
Personally, I won't change anything in Wikipedia Arabic, but, they are using wrong expressions and they don't let you edit it!
e.g. Maghrebi Varieties are translated as Maghrebi Dialects (or accents). Tunisian Arabic is Translated as Tunisian dialect, there isn't one Tunisian dialect! there is a Tunisian variety with many dialects! but nobody will understand that, and I'm not ready to do such discussions like that.
So, what does Wikipedia do to those things? --GeekEmad (talk) 21:39, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi. I wish I had information for you but each Wikipedia's infrastructure of guidelines and practices has developed independently, and I don't know anything about the way they work. What you can do is visit English Wikipedia policy pages and check to see whether there are language links on the lower left and, of them, whether one leads to a corresponding page on Arabic Wikipedia that will give you some guidance. For example, at Wikipedia:Dispute resolution, under Languages in the left-hand column, you'll find an العربية link, which leads to ar:ويكيبيديا:حل النزاع. —Largo Plazo (talk) 02:17, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

Alcatraz[edit]

Hi, Largoplazo. I see that years ago you removed "alcatraz" from here, claiming that the Spanish founded the place bla bla bla. The list is about the origin of words, not names of localities in the US. Alcatraz is a word of Portuguese origin. Regards, Rui ''Gabriel'' Correia (talk) 11:12, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

Wow, that was all the way back in 2006! Is there no statute of limitations on Wikipedia? Anyway, the list is of words in English that can be traced back to Portuguese. The word "alcatraz" as a common noun doesn't even exist in English; it's used only as the name of the island in San Francisco Bay and the prison on it. It was the name the island already had when English speakers arrived. Per Alcatraz Island, "The first Spaniard to document the island was Juan Manuel de Ayala in 1775, who charted San Francisco Bay and named one of the three islands he identified as the 'La Isla de los Alcatraces,' which translates as 'The Island of the Pelicans,' from the archaic Spanish alcatraz." As for how it got into Spanish, the dictionary of the Real Academia Española says "(Quizá del ár. hisp. *qaṭrás 'el de andares ufanos'),"[2] that is, from Hispanic Arabic, which was my first guess because it starts with "al-", the Arabic definite article, like the other Arabic-derived words "alcohol", "álgebra", "alquimia", "almanaque", "alfombra", "algodón" etc. Even if Portuguese also has the word, English didn't derive it directly or indirectly from Portuguese. The two languages obtained it, whether directly or indirectly, from a common source. —Largo Plazo (talk) 11:36, 11 August 2014 (UTC)
I take it back. While the word is hardly common or current, it has been used in English language texts as a common noun, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, which tags it "Now hist. and rare". The entry there says, "In Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking areas: a pelican" and includes such samples as, from 1582, "Ned Gylman took an alcatrash on the mayntopmast yerd, which ys a foolysh byrd but good lean rank meat." —Largo Plazo (talk) 11:57, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

Review of LazPaint page[edit]

Hello, you have reviewed LazPaint page and asked for references. For which assertion do you required a reference? Are there references here that you would not consider as sufficient? Regards, --Circular17 (talk) 09:42, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi. The emphasis in the tag is on multiple reliable sources, as defined in WP:Reliable sources, that are independent of the subject. At the time I added the tag, there were only four references, and at most only one of them qualified as such. There are now a couple more apparently independent reviews, so I consider the verifiability requirement satisfied, but now I'm wondering about notability (and specific notability guidelines for software) as well. Part of the problem is that most of the references are from LazPaint itself or from you. Your citation of your own videos and review doesn't take what you write here out of the category of original research. The independent reviews that you cited may not be sufficient, as the software notability guidelines explain. I'm going to replace the existing tag with a notability tag. —Largo Plazo (talk) 11:18, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
I understand. I have added some other notability links, for example a poll of 2011 where LazPaint gets the 7th place out of 13, and also the facebook page that has 118 likes (and going up). --Circular17 (talk) 21:54, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
Likes on a Facebook page are not a reliable source! —Largo Plazo (talk) 02:41, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
Hmmm, the Paint.NET page does not have much more, does it? And most of the references are from Paint.NET website and his author. --Circular17 (talk) 20:44, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
I haven't looked at it, but maybe that article also has problems. See WP:OTHERSTUFFEXISTS. —Largo Plazo (talk) 02:52, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
Fair enough. You know, LazPaint has existed for some years, it is just that I have seen some reference to the page LazPaint in the list of Comparison of raster graphics editors ( https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Comparison_of_raster_graphics_editors&oldid=617054010 ) so I completed a bit that page and thought that it was a bit ackward that it would not have its page like other painting software. It is clearly as good as Tux Paint and I would rather say better. Now I appreciated that I created the page personally. However I did not create the facebook page even if I am now the admin, I did not write those reviews and I did not query them in the first place. I am simply happy that people are interested in my program. And I don't really care about creating this page, I am just being consistant. LazPaint has already its own wiki. But I think that more than 2000 downloads per month is notable. --Circular17 (talk) 23:13, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
