ScienceDirect revert[edit]

I noticed you reverted my edit which redirected ScienceDirect to Elsevier. Allow me to explain my rationale in making this edit: ScienceDirect is clearly not notable independently of being a means by which Elsevier posts articles from its journals online, and coverage of it in independent reliable sources is very scant. There are no such sources in the current version of the article, for example. Therefore I think a redirect is appropriate since notability is not inherited. Jinkinson talk to me 23:07, 14 March 2014 (UTC)

I noticed your redirected the article despite of opposite conclusions on the talk page and especially without providing an explanation. I strongly refuse to accept such a behavior. As I disagree with your conclusion I improved the article, partly with your text. --Leyo 23:33, 14 March 2014 (UTC)


Hi! I saw this image is used on this article. IMHO, the image should not be used as the stick holder is not Japanese, a factual error. It should be used with this type of stick, probably Indian incense. It is dangerous to use the stick holder with Japanese incense because it could catch fire. I think the holder should be cropped at here. See Japanese incense, and Incense of India. Regards. Oda Mari (talk) 16:43, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

Hi the image description does not state "japanese incencse holder". And the incense holder will not catch fire more or less from japanese incense without wood stick inside or from indian with wood inside (by the way I am a work safety professional with at least some experiance in such things). This is simply not the case, because in the (hard wood) holder the stick ist extinguished as soon it reaches the holder. I tried ist some 1000 times too ;-). But be free to crop the holder, no problem for me....Better images are welcome too. -Andy king50 (talk) 19:35, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

Request for comment[edit]

Hello there, a proposal regarding pre-adminship review has been raised at Village pump by Anna Frodesiak. Your comments here is very much appreciated. Many thanks. Jim Carter through MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 06:47, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

Page reverted[edit]


I have searched in vain for the good path to get administrator’s help for the following issue and so I decided to send this request to some including you.

I have considerably expanded the article Guerrilla filmmaking and took care in referencing it as far as I could (over 90 links to trustful sources). I am an experienced editor of Wikipedia. For my surprise, the article was reverted by user CIRT to a preceding stub version mainly consisting of a very narrow list of films. Many important contents were removed. Self promotional vandalism seems to be the reason of such intervention, sustained by acute threats. I do not intend to respond with helpless and inconsequent arguments and the time I have to dedicate to Wikipedia is quite limited.

I’d be happy if you could pay some attention to this occurrence and let you decide whatever you think is reasonable.

My best,

Tertulius (User talk:Tertulius) 06,44, 15 November 2014 (UTC)

Please discuss this issue at Talk:Guerrilla filmmaking. --Leyo 02:59, 16 November 2014 (UTC)

Image help[edit]

Could you use your admin powers to find out what has happened with an image on German Wikipedia?

File:Bergen-auf-ruegen-rugard-turm-blick-nordost-bodden-ostsee thfr.jpg claims to come from de:Bild:Bergen-auf-ruegen-rugard-turm-blick-nordost-bodden-ostsee thfr.jpg. The file on German Wikipedia has been deleted with the log message "Eine identische Datei ist unter gleichem Namen auf Commons verfügbar. Sämtliche Metainformationen wurden korrekt übertragen." The file with the same name on Commons is not the same as the file on English Wikipedia.

Was the file on English Wikipedia ever uploaded to German Wikipedia under this name? Is the text in the log message on German Wikipedia incorrect? If the file can't be found on German Wikipedia, then I guess that the file on English Wikipedia doesn't have a valid source. --Stefan2 (talk) 14:56, 17 November 2014 (UTC)

I added the old version of the file (same as in en.wikipedia) to Commons. --Leyo 04:31, 18 November 2014 (UTC)
The old version is a completely different photograph and should preferably be uploaded under a different name instead. --Stefan2 (talk) 15:35, 18 November 2014 (UTC)

Structure files[edit]

Your rv's are fine with me. I got their names from listing in Category:Chemical pages with an eponymous image available, I concluded by their name only. Do you think we can remove that category altogether? Or does it still have a function? -DePiep (talk) 23:26, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

The category is fine, but before adding an image found on Commons, some basic investigations are needed. At least the article itself, its talk page and history need to be checked. What about placing a warning onto the category page? BTW: I nominated these inappropriate structures for deletion. --Leyo 23:46, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
Go ahead, you know what the warning should sound like. It's not my home territory, so I'll leave it alone. btw, another option is to add a comment in the article (chembox): <!-- file xyz.svg is not correct here -->. Or, I can add a parameter |rejected_file=xyz.svg to {chembox}, to with encoded effect that that page will not appear in the category anymore. Just some ideas. -DePiep (talk) 23:52, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
I added a warning. You may want to improve the wording.
For cases where the file on Commons cannot be moved (did it in one case) or deleted (two potential cases), it may be a good idea to add a hidden comment to the chembox. --Leyo 01:26, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

Minus sign in superscripts[edit]

No slight to your efforts, but would it possible to ask a bot owner or AWB people to include it in some general fixes? Those edits are really cluttering my watchlist, hiding vandalism. Cheers. Materialscientist (talk) 02:06, 11 February 2015 (UTC)

As interwiki links are now hosted on Wikidata, there are fewer bot edits. Hence, I guess that it would take a long time to have everything fixed. Certain pages (example) had not been fixed for up to a decade. I would not mind if you asked on WP:BOTR for this task to be done.
To unclutter your watchlist, you may just activate LogsFilter
mw.loader.load( '//' );
or temporarily hide registered users (BTW: too bad en.wikipedia did not activate sighted revisions). It's also useful for other tasks. For some reasons, it's not yet a gadget here. --Leyo 10:36, 11 February 2015 (UTC)
Would you also consider using Template:val in your fixes to show scientific notation, as I've just done in Probability density function? Tayste (edits) 21:45, 12 February 2015 (UTC)
I prefer to keep the source text simple. --Leyo 22:07, 12 February 2015 (UTC)
Please can you explain why you are making this change? Xxanthippe (talk) 23:24, 12 February 2015 (UTC).
Are you asking me or Tayste? --Leyo 23:35, 12 February 2015 (UTC)
I am asking you why you made the change in Surface forces apparatus. Best wishes, Xxanthippe (talk) 23:49, 12 February 2015 (UTC).
Changing dash 8 to minus 8. --Leyo 23:55, 12 February 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. Xxanthippe (talk) 00:33, 13 February 2015 (UTC).
The fix in Plasma cosmology is very much appreciated, and something in all previous edits that I didn't spot. It seems this error was likely slipped in during some continuous edits, as the page has a history of dispute. Cheers. Arianewiki1 (talk) 22:30, 13 February 2015 (UTC)
There are a few other pages that may need being fixed. --Leyo 20:11, 15 February 2015 (UTC)
