Reverting admin actions[edit]

Per the blocking policy and block appeals guidelines, unless exceptional or expedient circumstances apply, administrators should not unblock a user without prior discussion with the blocking admin. Unless it's me. If I believe you should consult me before undoing a block (or other admin action), I will make it clear. If I don't, I would appreciate a note, but if you believe I have made a mistake, just undo it. If I believe that undoing it was exceptionaly stupid, I reserve the right to slap you with a trout.

Hadi Partovi[edit]

I was about to create a new article for Hadi Partovi to fix a redlink in the Code.org article. I saw that you deleted a previous attempt about a year ago and just wanted to see if you recall the reason. I assume it's that the editor didn't do a good job citing sources (of which there seem to be plenty in mainstream media, at least now). Let me know if you know of any reason why I shouldn't try to create this article. Thanks! Benchun (talk) 03:46, 1 December 2014 (UTC)

No, go right ahead. I checked the deleted content, and it was a single line: هادي بارتوفي هو مؤسس شركة Code.org. So unfortunately, there is nothing there I can undelete for you, but nothing to stand in the way of recreation either. Martijn Hoekstra (talk) 07:31, 1 December 2014 (UTC)
I see that this account is pretty new, so if you have any questions - for example about our criteria for inclusion of biographies or (speedy) deletion and article creation, feel free to ask me, or for example the teahouse or the help desk. It's also a good idea to review our guide to your first article if you haven't done so already. Martijn Hoekstra (talk) 09:39, 1 December 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for looking into that Martijn. I will do some reading based on your links. I created my account years ago but have just recently started contributing. benchun (talk) 18:48, 1 December 2014 (UTC)
Nevertheless, welcome! Have fun editing, and don't worry too much about making honest mistakes. It's a wiki after all! Martijn Hoekstra (talk) 20:46, 1 December 2014 (UTC)
