Deletion sorting[edit]

Hey there, in future when you add AfDs to Deletion sorting pages as you did with Michael Knaap & Chloe Bruce (martial artist) to the Martial arts deletion sorting page please ensure you tag the AfD with the relevant delsort tag, in this case {{subst:delsort|Martial arts|~~~~}} this informs users it has already been added to delsort page & ensures its not added multiple times. ★☆ DUCKISJAMMMY☆★ 00:06, 13 May 2012 (UTC)

When you read this you'll see that your MMA votes have again been called into question. I think you can expect this to continue to happen as long as you continue to vote to delete MMA articles and the MMA discussions remain as contentious as they currently are. The course of action you choose to take is up to you, but I wouldn't expect the MMA fans to change their methods. Papaursa (talk) 00:37, 18 June 2012 (UTC)
Screw the fanboys! All I've ever gotten from them are insults and lies. Let them turn this into MMApedia. Mdtemp (talk) 16:39, 25 June 2012 (UTC)
They are the staunchest supporters of WP:ILIKEIT. I'll admit I was ready to quit WP, but then I decided they'd already driven off too many editors. I've stopped being involved with MMA things like policies, but I still vote when articles come up for AfD.

Iain Martell Afd[edit]

Because you participated in a previous deletion discussion about this subject, I'm notifying you that I've opened Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Iain Martell (3rd nomination). Mark Arsten (talk) 22:53, 6 August 2012 (UTC)

MMA Event Notability[edit]

Donald Braithwaite[edit]

I'm disappointed with your conclusion at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Donald Braithwaite that a "no consensus" would be a "win/win". While I agree with the comments that say neither side is likely to convince the other, it seems like you're willing to compromise your stance just to say you're not wrong. I apologize if I'm misinterpreting your statement. As the keep claims have gotten more extreme--competing in an international event in any sport is sufficient to show notability--I feel loath to give in to their views. Papaursa (talk) 04:34, 13 February 2013 (UTC)

I just reread what I wrote and you're right--I do sound like a ****. I doubt that will be the last time.Mdtemp (talk) 19:15, 14 February 2013 (UTC)

While it’s easy for inclusionist types like myself to bemoan what we see as exclusionism, possibly even deletionism (gasp!), one can’t deny that without such countervailing force the wiki would be teeming with garbage. Thanks for all that you do. :) Buddy23Lee (talk) 18:17, 28 February 2013 (UTC)
Thank you. This is a nice change from the abuse I usually get.Mdtemp (talk) 19:02, 28 February 2013 (UTC)

Jigo-Tensin-Ryu Jujutsu and Dong Jin Kim[edit]

Mdtemp, I appreciate all comments to the pages we have created but please do just that, make suggestions and please do not automatically put it up for deletion. These two pages are relation to a martial art affiliated with the National Defense University. Both pages have are of importance to the NDU and are important in martial arts. Don Jin Kim was national champion in Kendo and the style of Jujutsu is taught by the NDU as part of a U.S. military curriculum. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Emery80 (talkcontribs) 03:57, 10 May 2013 (UTC)

I don't automatically put anything up for deletion. However, if lacks good sources and has questionable notability then AfD is reasonable. Teaching a class at the NDU does not show notability and please don't removed AfD notices from articles.Mdtemp (talk) 19:45, 14 May 2013 (UTC)
Understood. Want to make it better and taking the suggestions to heart. Would like too keep both, but it does not look like that will happen.

Atemi Ju-Jitsu[edit]

What's your thoughts on Atemi Ju-Jitsu? I want to be respectful to other MAs, but I am not sold on this one. I am of the understanding their lineage is in question (I have seen this school of Jujitsu brought up on other sites). Further, there references dont add up and its not sourced. — Preceding unsigned comment added by MartialArtsLEO (talkcontribs) 05:25, 14 May 2013 (UTC)

I personally know nothing about this style. I took a quick look at the references and, since they're in French, can not make a quick decision on it. You might try posting your question at WT:WPMA to see what others have to say. Sometimes, but not always, you'll get additional responses. If that fails you can always put it up for AfD, but that's obviously more of a last resort (or if you have serious reservations about the notability and sources).Mdtemp (talk) 19:50, 14 May 2013 (UTC)
Did it, thanks. Message me if you run into anything else Kendo or any other Japanese MA.MartialArtsLEO (talk) 03:38, 15 May 2013 (UTC)
Keep an eye on WT:WPMA--that's the place most people post MA questions or start discussions.Mdtemp (talk) 17:52, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

Sorry for the issues. I am new to this. I know you are just trying to make Wiki better. Emery80 (talk) 23:24, 14 May 2013 (UTC)

New user Fightmaximus[edit]

Me tactful - not so sure about that. Let's just see how the articles develop with the tags in place. Cheers Peter Rehse (talk) 20:57, 9 September 2013 (UTC)

Kenjiro Yoshigasaki[edit]

I have added new footnotes and inline references. How we can close the AfD discussion to merge all(Ki No Kenkyukai Int Assc, Kenkodo) articles to Kenjiro Yoshigasaki? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kiaikido1 (talkcontribs) 23:09, 22 December 2013 (UTC)

Sockpuppetry case[edit]

Hello Mdtemp, a sockpuppetry case has been filed regarding you. Please see Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/SPI/Guidance#Defending yourself against claims for information on how to respond. Thanks, Callanecc (talkcontribslogs) 06:35, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

AfD Takagi[edit]

Hi, thanks for your work in helping keep WP focused on the right things. I'm a new writer on WP, and I appreciate your eye on the page on Jon Takagi. Please take a look at my comments in the AfD discussion, and let me know how else I can improve it at this time. Joe Shuri (talk) 22:29, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

I'm glad you understand it's not personal. I simply don't see significant coverage of him in sources that are reliable and independent. I've responded in more detail at the AfD discussion. Good luck in your search for additional sources.Mdtemp (talk) 20:09, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

AfD notifications[edit]


I've noticed that you haven't been notifying article creators when you've been filing AfDs recently. Now, that step is not required by policy, so you can tell me to blow off if you want. Still, WP:AFD says in part "While not required, it is generally considered courteous to notify the good-faith creator ... of the articles that you are nominating for deletion." One easy way to do this, and there are probably others, is the use of Wikipedia:Twinkle, which automates AfD nomination to a fair degree. Such notifications help the deletion process because they make it easier to avoid deletion reviews and reconsideration when an article creator later complains about a deletion when they hadn't been notified of the discussion, and this is not an uncommon type of complaint. Thanks for your consideration.
