Feedback tool[edit]

At Wikipedia:Help desk#Feedback tool I wrote

#t-articlefeedbackv5-enable {display: none;}

I noticed you changed display to disable in User:Loriendrew/common.css. PrimeHunter (talk) 14:23, 1 March 2014 (UTC)

I could not paste it in using my ipad, guess I wrote it wrong. Anyway, I do not think it would do what I was requesting. Someone else told me how to disable the tool on an article a different way. I was looking to not make the tool disappear for me, but to delete the accidental activation of the tool on the page.--☾Loriendrew☽ (talk) 15:12, 1 March 2014 (UTC)
View feedback, click gear/wrench-thing, and "disable feedback on this page".--☾Loriendrew☽ (talk) 15:15, 1 March 2014 (UTC)
OK, I thought you wanted to avoid future accidental activations of the tool. You are right the code does not remove the tool. PrimeHunter (talk) 22:01, 1 March 2014 (UTC)

Speedy Deletion Karl templer[edit]

Hi - I have written to contest the speedy deletion of Karl Templer as this was not a draft. It was a final entry for a notable member of the fashion industry. If there was a problem with my references please can you replace the article so I can edit and resubmit. I have been waiting 6 weeks for someone to look at this entry - please can you explain what the problems were with it. Please can you send me the entry so I don't have to recode absolutely everything. This is the closest I can get you as a link to the page - — Preceding unsigned comment added by Freemans land (talkcontribs) 11:18, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

There is a way to undelete an article. Follow the instructions there, but be warned that an article that was both speedy deleted normally and speedy deleted following an wp:AfC submission will unlikely be retrieved.--☾Loriendrew☽ (talk) 11:32, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

What are my other options? To start the page from scratch? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Freemans land (talkcontribs) 12:05, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

That may be the best bet. Follow the advice given on your talk page, especially about how to make an acceptable article.--☾Loriendrew☽ (talk) 14:31, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

But won't this take weeks to go live - I have been waiting six weeks for this page to go live. Does it always take this long? I don't know why the page I was working on initially was deleted in the first place. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Freemans land (talkcontribs) 20:45, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

Read the notices you were given. The administrator who deleted your original article as well as the Articles for Creation reviewer of your other article deemed it to be blatantly promotional and did not meet standards for a wikipedia article. My only role was an initial tagging of the article for review and had no actual decision in deleting either article. View the various links given to you on your talk page for advice on how to proceed and write an acceptable article.--☾Loriendrew☽ (talk) 21:01, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

Speedy Deletion of Compost black[edit]

Hi Loriendrew. I saw that you requested for speedy deletion on Compost Black, and I just wanted to say that I did not make it up, and if you want to research it you may. I actually think it should be deleted; I'm not good with professional writing. :P .oOSummerleafOo. (talk) 00:58, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

Read the notice you were sent. You may contest the deletion by clicking on the button and leaving your opinion on the talk page. A search of the term did not bring up any results. If you can find a reference/citation of it, then you should defend it (and reference the term).--☾Loriendrew☽ (talk) 01:03, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

Obama-ism AFD[edit]

Thanks for your "KEEP" vote at the Obama-ism AFD. Sadly, Wikipedia still can't shake its liberal bias. The admin closed the debate early, ignored all of our arguments and assumed that this article wasn't notable because Obamaism wasn't a few years ago. --HansBarack (talk) 11:54, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

  1. It is not a vote :)
  2. Do not assume that I am not a liberal. double ;)

Red links[edit]

Hi. I understand your point. I don't rv every redlink I come across, but if there is a large number of redlinks in an overlong or undersourced article, or if the links are so old that they appear unlikely to ever become articles in their own right, that's usually when I am likely to act. But thanks for the advice. Much appreciated. Yours, Quis separabit? 18:42, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

List of Time-Banks around the World[edit]

Hi, I have left a note on the talk page of the above article which you nominated for deletion. I think the article is notable and warrants to be on Wikipedia. It consists of a list of related items of which all of them have Wikipedia articles and the editor has even gone further to add sources. Unless I am missing something I would vouch to keep the article. Nyashinski (talk) 03:47, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

The author copy/pasted a table about world conflicts and deaths into a List article about a completely different topic: Time banks. The reflist you fixed was correct for the table and had nothing to do with the topic. Since the author had stopped editing I tagged it with a test edit csd as well as no context since there was no description of the article.'--☾Loriendrew☽ (talk) 10:34, 10 April 2014 (UTC)
My bad I only looked at the body of the article. Yes I agree with you that the content was not consistent with the title and ought to have been marked as test edits.The article has been nominated for deletion again and seems the creator removed the deletion tag again. What to do? Nyashinski (talk) 13:52, 10 April 2014 (UTC)
AfD placed. Unless it can get improved a list-of-one needs to be deleted.--☾Loriendrew☽ (talk) 14:56, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

Altho I see that Lagomorphs also include Pikas, not something I was aware of from my archeological course, (probably because the small bones don t survive...:) so I ve updated it to Leporidae, the collective Latin taxon, assuming you don t object to that in an Encyclopedia? Excuse the shortness, I m fed up with editors reverting edits without trying to improve them. Happy Oestre. /=n (talk)

Declined speedy[edit]

I declined the speedy for KR (rapper) because there was just enough to assert notability to pass a speedy. However as a whole I don't see notability even after finding a few sources, so I'll likely nominate it via AfD. Tokyogirl79 (。◕‿◕。) 07:05, 20 April 2014 (UTC)

Hello Loriendrew. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Nahid Almanea, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: Article claims coverage in reliable sources. Thank you. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 15:16, 20 June 2014 (UTC)

Info listing of Robin Hood[edit]

To whom it may concern,

Please repost the information to Wikipedia that you have edited. I think that you will discover that all academic research was once 'original'. And, as far as I am aware, the information that you have removed discusses a piece of recent academic research pertaining to a work published by Scott A La' Chance, entitled 'The Origins and Development of the Legend of Robin Hood' published under copyright by the University of Leeds in accordance with the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 in the year 2014. A hard copy of this text can be located in the Brotherton Library at the University of Leeds, and has been reviewed prior to publication by leading medievalist historians, including Professor Graham Loud of the University of Leeds, Dr Emilia Jamroziack at the University of Leeds and Professor David Crouchd at the University of Hull. A full citation of this work was, I believe provided on the page, but if it was not, and if you wish to make yourself useful, you will aid me by citing the source correctly.

Thank You

@Siggasonswin. It is not for you to discuss others' work on Wikipedia - that is original research. We only have your word that any of this is from a worthy source. You admit that what you added is from a hard copy of a published copyrighted text; your additions therefore are probably copyright violation. Failure to stop your disruptive additions will lead to a ban from editing. Acabashi (talk) 22:28, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

Please note, this is not unsourced material. Please read the following for details of why this is so.[edit]

Dear All Users,

In regard to the academic paper entitled, Robin Hood, The Origins and Development of the Legend, please note that this work was initially an undergraduate dissertation research paper, and thereafter became a postgraduate Master of Arts Research thesis. The dissertation paper was acclaimed by the Faculty of Arts at the University of Leeds, and in addition to receiving a 1st Class Honors degree, was described by Professor Graham Loud of the School of History, at the University of Leeds as being 'ingenious..and in regard to the matter of identifying the origins of the legend of Robin Hood, it is at least as convincing as anything which has preceded it'. The postgraduate research paper, a 30,000 word thesis, was successfully peer reviewed by Dr Emilia Jamroziack of the School of History, Faculty of Arts at the University of Leeds, Professor Graham Loud Faculty of Arts at the University of Leeds and Professor David Crouch of the School of History, Faculty of Arts at the University of Hull, all of whom are leading medievalist historians teaching in UK institutions of Higher Education (a list of their credentials can be found online with a simple Google search).

The Research Administration Department at the University of Leeds has a hardbound copy of the original document, entitled, La' Chance, Scott A, The Origins and Development of the Legend of Robin Hood (Leeds: The University of Leeds, 2014) which has been published and copyrighted by the university in accordance with the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988. In due process, The Origins and Development of the Legend of Robin Hood will be transferred to the Brotherton Library at the University of Leeds, where it will be made available for all UK users via requested inter-library loan. Likewise, full citation details of this work will be made available to the public when this paper is eventually electronically listed on the University of Leeds library website.

The University of Leeds is itself a leading Russell Group University, and the Russell Group

'UK research base is highly productive and has a global reputation for excellence: with less than 1% of the world’s population, the UK earns 12% of international citations and 16% of the most cited papers. This is seen as the acid test of whether research is being taken seriously'.

So, as a result of having been both peer assessed by leading medievalist historians working for Russell Group Universities, and of having been published and copyrighted under the terms of UK law by the University of Leeds Research Administration Department, the academic paper entitled, The Origins and Development of the Legend of Robin Hood is, I would suggest, fit for reference purposes on Wikipedia.

What follows is a balanced review of that academic paper, written in the third person, picking out the key points that are of relevance to the listing that it is headed under. I have listed the article on the following page because it is deemed to be of importance to the history of the township, as one will discover if one takes the time to read the article. Moreover, a full and accurate citation has been provided to the work under the heading of La' Chance, Scott. A The Origins and Development of the Legend of Robin Hood (Leeds: The University of Leeds, 2014). In consequence, the article can in no sense be considered as being malicious, and I would therefore be very grateful if you would kindly stop removing it. However, if you have an issue with either the style of the listing or the accuracy of its content, and would care to formally discuss these issues with me in a personable manner, I would be delighted to hear from you.
