Revision deletion on Berry Good[edit]

I am contacting you because I respect you as an editor and you have listed yourself on Category:Wikipedia administrators willing to handle RevisionDelete requests. Could you remove the first few edits to Berry Good, as it contains personal identifiable information of the group's members, such as blood type and birthday. I believe that this is criteria for revision deletion, so could you suppress the edit? (Or delete the page entirely for A7 if it meets the criteria?) Piguy101 (talk) 01:47, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the message. I deleted the article under A7. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 01:50, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
Good. Thanks Piguy101 (talk) 01:53, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Intimidating new users, Arbitrary interpretation of Wikipedia guidelines[edit]

You stated on my talk page that I am making "snide comments" and "violating ARBPIA" with "my attacks."

Given that you tried to bully and intimidate a new Wikipedia user with snide comments (amongst other tactics mentioned there) user:Monochrome_monitor just yesterday, you might want to re-consider criticizing other users for that, particularly when unlike you, I was trying to make a serious point, and my statements were not directed at new users.

I also can't see how comments on a talk page can violate ARBPIA. Are you trying to arbitrarily re-write Wikipedia policies for the sake of threatening other users?
Speaking of arbitrarily re-writing policies, you have provided no explanation on said talk page where you alternatively claimed that the validity of sources must be either proven or disproven depending on whether or not you support them. I would appreciate an explanation for that. Wikieditorpro (talk) 02:19, 7 July 2014 (UTC)


Levan Jibladze (Leo Jee)[edit]

Hello Malik i dont understand why u deleted this article ?--Best Regards 06:49, 7 July 2014 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by AlexSpancer (talkcontribs)

Levan Jibladze was deleted because it was copied and pasted from another website in violation of copyright law. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 14:08, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
ok Malik and what i have to do? i mean create Leo Jee or Levan Jibladze article... i need levan jibladzes new biography ?--Best Regards 06:27, 8 July 2014 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by AlexSpancer (talkcontribs)
The problem is that Levan Jibladze / Leo Jee doesn't satisfy Wikipedia's notability guideline, WP:MUSICBIO. If you create another biography about him (your seventh), it will be deleted. And you will probably be blocked. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 15:59, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Deletion of Spotahome[edit]

Hi there, I see you deleted my article on Spotahome. I assume it was under A7. This article was previously deleted and I rewrote it doing additional research and using reliable sources. (Genbeta, for example, is a leading source of technology news in Spain, where Spotahome is based.) If possible, I would like to continue working on this article. Or, at the least, understand why it was deleted despite the sourcing, and what I can do to prevent my articles from being deleted in the future. Best Sweeeedishfish (talk) 07:36, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

@Sweeeedishfish: (talk page stalker) The page was actually deleted under G11 for advertising or promotion. You can click Spotahome for the whole log. Since I never saw the article, I do not know about the situation. Piguy101 (talk) 14:10, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
(edit conflict) I deleted Spotahome because it was promotional in tone. If Spotahome satisfies Wikipedia's notability guidelines, please write a new article by summarizing in your own words what reliable sources have written about it. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 14:11, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Al-Aqsa Mosque[edit]

Asalaam alaikum, i am new to making all these changes..so could you please change the word "mosque" to "masjid", and add (pbuh) after the name of prophet. thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Fatimazahra12 (talkcontribs) 02:52, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Asalaam alaikum. On English-language Wikipedia, we use the common English word "mosque" instead of masjid. Also, it is against the rules here to add pbuh after Muhammad's name. Please see WP:PBUH. Thank you. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 02:57, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Request for Comment[edit]

I'm sorry for bothering you, but no one seems to care. Do you mind offering opinion in Afd:Progressive Judaism (Israel).מהמברטה (talk) 12:59, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

North Pacific Marine Science Organization deletion[edit]

Sir, I am writing about the need to restore a page for the North Pacific Marine Science Organization. The reason for deletion was G12. I can imagine that the originator of this page simply cut and pasted material from our website www.pices.int, and that may have been the apparent offense.

I was, until I retired earlier this year, the Deputy Executive Secretary of the Organization. After I retired, I was asked by the Executive Secretary to see about getting this page restored and updated, including writing new material should that be required. I have retained an email address at the organization (mckinnell@pices.int). 24.69.82.110 (talk) 18:45, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi. I can't restore the old page because of the copyright violation, but you should feel free to write a new article about the North Pacific Marine Science Organization. The best way to write a Wikipedia article is to summarize in your own words what reliable sources have written about a subject. Good luck. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 20:56, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Jorge Elorza[edit]

Hi! This is just to let you know that, despite what you've written immediately above this, I think you may have inadvertently have restored a possible copyvio at Jorge Elorza. As far as I can see, that was tagged by CorenSearchBot, and then speedy-deleted by Bbb23 with two criteria, of which the second was G12. It seems to me that the article is still a partial copyvio, so I've listed it at WP:CP for processing. Of course I can't see the previous version, so I may be way off here. Thank you for all the good stuff you do. Regards, Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 21:34, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Malik, I deleted it again per G12. It's almost straight from the guy's website. There are perhaps a couple of sentences that haven't been copied verbatim. It can't remain in that condition.--Bbb23 (talk) 23:30, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
Hey, I'm going off-wiki for a while shortly, Malik. If you believe my deletion was wrong, feel free to take whatever action you think is appropriate. Regards.--Bbb23 (talk) 01:45, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
Sorry about that. I guess I should have checked whether the second version of the article was substantially different from the first. Thanks for taking care of it, Bbb23. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 02:21, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks to both. Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 07:41, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

Reverted edit[edit]

Hello there Malik, I made an edit to a utorrent page [[1]] some while ago and it was reverted by you because of a "not reliable source". I believe the source I used was the most reliable one, since it was the own utorrent's forum page. I cared to provide the link and access date on my edit. But, But I am here to help and improve. That's why I also bothered to bother you a little and understand the reasons of your action.

Thanks, Fellipe Salomon — Preceding unsigned comment added by Fellipesalomon (talkcontribs) 18:36, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

Please read WP:Identifying reliable sources, particularly the section titled "Self-published sources (online and paper)". Internet forums, by their nature, are user-generated and self-published and therefore considered unreliable on Wikipedia. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 02:01, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

Opposing your recent suggestion[edit]

Hi Malik: I have noted as follows at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Judaism#History of the Jews in X articles: Keep the current naming system because Jewish history and Jews and Judaism ARE NOT the same thing!!! and the parent category of Category:Jewish history, with Category:Jewish history by country covers everything including Jews, Judaism, and any related topics that impact Jewish history. There are a few cases where some articles and topics overlap but 90% of the time "History of the Jews in ____" is specific to and covers the Jewish history in that country/city/location PERFECTLY FINE! To change the current naming system would also create massive confusion with the categories because there are distinct and clear categories for Category:Judaism that deals with religious topics such as Category:Synagogues, and Category:Jews that deals with lists and names of Jews, many not even connected to Judaism or to Jewish history. With the current name of "History of the Jews in ___" it connects to and includes things like Category:The Holocaust and other topics, such as relations with Israel and other countries and topics that are historical topics and not related to the religion of Judaism, or to Jews as such, sometimes it is more indirect, and from the point of view of those GENTILES (not Jews and not connected to Judaism either!) who caused it, so it is not about Jews either but its about the Nazis and their antisemitism for example. Indeed Category:Antisemitism does NOT fit neatly into "Judaism" (unless when discussed as part of theology) or only "Jews" (nothing to do with various categories of Jews by ancestry) either but is a perfect topic when in Jewish history. The current system is NOT broken, so please do not try to "fix" it. Thank you, kind regards and Shabbat Shalom, IZAK (talk) 21:53, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
