Speedy Deletion of[edit]

I viewed those pages and saw how originally it was viewed as promotional. I tried to recreate it about the history which I don't believe it is promotional at all. I found the page for and used that as the basis of my creation. Can you please explain how the page I added and the page is different? All you did was delete a page without doing any research.

April Fool's Jokes[edit]

Mike Rosoft, please understand me. I'm trying very, very hard to be civil. April Fool's jokes are a time-honored tradition on Wikipedia. Editors devote 364 days of every year to serious contributions. I think it's OK to have fun on day 365. I promise to help clean up after April Fool's Day is over. The definition of vandalism is a bad-faith edit. I'm not trying to harm the encyclopedia. I do recognize your adminship and experience, though, and it's OK to agree to disagree.

God in Buddhism[edit]

I dont understand why the edit warring. I have put precisely the view of buddhism concerning god. In buddhism there is no supreme deva ruler acting as creator. in that we agree.

But saying early buddhism explicitly reject a natural metaphysical divinity carries no sense. The dharma (universal natural law) aspect of buddhism has a metaphysical aspect and is a constant source of devotion. Also,if the nibbana exists and has a source in the dharma, again we have a more metaphysical aspect of divinity.

And lets not forget the concept of dhammakaya present even in early buddhist texts. for example,the controversial aganna sutra states that:

"The Buddha then advises Vasettha that whoever has strong, deep rooted, and established belief in the Tathagatha, he can declare that he is the child of Bhagavan, born from the mouth of Dhamma, created from Dhamma, and the heir of Dhamma. Because the titles of the Tathagatha are: The Body of Dhamma, The Body of Brahma, the Manifestation of Dhamma, and the Manifestation of Brahma"

Im certain that if we dig more of the pali sutras we are going to find mores of such descryptions. You may argue that the aganna sutta is just a joke,but this view is not unanymous and many monks take it seriously. Thereby,saying buddhism "explicitly" rejects divinity and avoids to endorse any metaphysical view seems forced.

the buddha discarded the view of a divine being acting as creator. But the dhamma is divinized since early buddhism. Fixed entities such as an unchanging self-soul are also denied,but not spiritual metaphysics.Also, if buddha avoided all views concerning the universe,there would not be talks concerning karma and rebirth.

Important to note the rejection of divine beings (devas) as masters of the universe do not amount as rejection of all the characteristics attributed to related to divity. Also,the article seems to be sectarian concerning mahayana and theravada beliefs, pointing the mahayana faith as something semi-apocryphal. (talk) 18:13, 4 August 2013 (UTC)

Unless you are Hawaiian or an anthropologist in this area of study would you mind reverting the changes back? The article is horrible in it's original state.

Page Deletion - FYIcode[edit]

Dear Mike, I am so sorry that our page was viewed as a promotional site. However, this page is not one of promotion but a page of a communication evolution. Just in the way QR Codes became a way for people to communicate messages, FYIcodes are the same but better, they allow 'any user' with 'any telephone' a way to access and spread their messages. This is along the lines of what a QR code partially offers and we are only trying to document the evolution of a new technology. I did not have enough time to fill in the gaps and the sources to meet your requirements. Please respectfully reinstate so that we may have the opportunity to speak accurately on the behalf of a new historical communication technology. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dawnrenee14 (talkcontribs) 06:32, 10 June 2012 (UTC)

Road Sign articles for Botswana and South Africa[edit]

Would you mind explaining to me why you deleted these two articles? Yes Jermboytold2 was a sock (which was a shame, cause I actually appreciated him creating pages for my signs so I didn't have to), but all the road signs (except one or two) were made by myself, and they are sourced on their description pages, so your deletion summary saying "completely unreferenced" is not actually true. Fry1989 eh? 00:51, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Looks like this time, the road signs themselves are legitimate. However, the articles are unreferenced and little more than galleries of road signs; they would have been more suited to Wikimedia Commons. (If you are interested in them, I can recover them into your user space as drafts.)
    The user in question has had a history of creating articles about road signs containing signs from different countries - at best, without verifying that they actually exist in the other countries and have identical design; at worst, as straightforward hoaxes. (Plus joke pages about non-existent countries like Hotsapore and Rafid.) For this reason, I do not see him as trustworthy. (See User talk:Santapo.)
    As User:Jermboytold, he created a couple of unsourced articles about rod signs; I asked him to pick one, I'd recover it as a draft into user space, and then he'd be able to work on it and provide references. He responded by vandalizing The Land Before Time (adding non-existent countries), and (after I blocked him) returning as User:Jermboytold2. This time, I deleted his contributions and blocked him as a sockpuppet with prejudice. - Mike Rosoft (talk) 05:39, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
I understand the sock problem, and wish this user hadn't resorted to that. I created a road sign article myself some time ago for Zimbabwe, but since then my work on making road signs that we do not have on the project has went from minor hobby to a full-fledged job, and when the user created the pages, it was a time saver for me. I understand now why you deleted them, and I can create them in the future properly and with sources and links, I just wished to know why you deleted them. Fry1989 eh? 06:00, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
Actually if you don't mind you can delete the user space pages you made for me now, I have created the Botswana and South Africa road sign articles now with proper references. Thanks. Fry1989 eh? 20:17, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

Thank you and a <delete>small</delete> new, larger request[edit]

Hello Administrator Rosoft!
Thank you for your kindness in visiting my talk page today, and clarifying how I could correctly apply categories. My request is very small, and may be completely ignored, or at most, be your very lowest priority. Could you tell me where I was mis-applying categorization syntax? It would help me to learn. But if you have too many other things to do, just ignore this, and accept my thanks for taking the time to visit and help me! --FeralOink (talk) 23:01, 24 June 2012 (UTC)

Greetings to you, Administrator Rosoft! I'm back! NOW I understand what that pertained to! Thank you so much for clearing up the "vague"-ly anomalous addition of a user page as a category in a Wikiproject. I didn't know what to do about it at the time, and completely forgot about the matter between April and late June. You handled it with finesse, from what I could piece together. I am appreciative.

I have a new request (you were so helpful once already ;o) Background: I read an article yesterday, in Scientific American, about a website which is propagating misinformation about non-mainstream (to put it mildly) paleontology. This wasn't one of those fluffy SciAm articles, but rather, more like the sort they used to write back in the 1980's. As evidence of the insidiousness and pernicious effect of the situation, there was an example given, of how one of the fabricated "creatures" even has an entry here, in Wikipedia. And sure enough, it does. The WP article references a Royal Society publication, but without any link. I dug for the source somewhere online, finally found it, and confirmed that there was no such reference to this creature, nor the "scientist" (I think he was fabricated too) in the Royal Society proceedings. In fact, that citation is associated instead with completely different published work done by people with PhD's who work for the Museum of Natural History in New York City, about 20 years ago.

Unfortunately, the fabricated creature was entered in at least one of those online biological taxonomy databases (I noticed that too). I have the URL etc. I don't know that it was done with any ill-intent. Obviously, I am rather horrified that the taxonomic record of evolution that has been so painstakingly created is being undermined by a single flakey website. But that is not our concern here, and I am not a bioinformatics person, nor a taxonomist. What IS our concern, I believe, is the fabricated creature (as I am referring to it) article, here on Wikipedia. Of course, I could just be BOLD, and delete the thing, but it has a lot of visibility at the moment, and I wanted to get some input from someone such as yourself first. I can provide URLs and quotes from sources as corroboration, but I don't want to just deposit the mass here on your talk page without some prior notice. Or should I just be quiet and not rock the boat? The article in Wikipedia is not the cause of the larger problem. It is merely one consequence of the huge popularity of the website that was the subject of the SciAm article. --FeralOink (talk) 02:36, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

Unidentified Flying Objects revert[edit]

Hi Mike. Please note and feel free to contribute this discussion on the Unidentified Flying Objects talk page. I intend to eventually remove the reference to the ET Hypothesis from the intro to the article. A UFO is a report. The ET Hypothesis is a theory to explain the reports. The ETH is not important to UFOs on a definitional level. And as skeptics everywhere agree, the conflation of the word UFO with the concept of alien spaceships is illogical and a huge step that is not justified. Therefore we should not start an encyclopedia article on UFOs by making that same association! Clotten (talk) 18:49, 12 October 2012 (UTC)

Akash Maharaj[edit]

It seems that User:Jonfoerster is basically alleging a WP:BLP violation. Shouldn't we let his substantially edited version (which still leaves in the core of the allegations) in until we've had a chance to check that the sources back everything up properly? Morwen - Talk 19:22, 2 November 2012 (UTC)

This article does NOT rise to a level of notability. Most of the source information is from a college newspaper, whose author makes several inferences and personal conclusions that are presented in the Wiki entry as fact. Since Akash Maharaj is not a notable person -- nor is the alleged crime particularly noteworthy -- the entry seems suspicious and potentially personally motivated. Wikipedia does not publish articles on every small crime that makes the news and thus this shouldn't be published either.

Dear Mr. Mike Rosoft

I'm writing to you in complain of a deleted article. A couple of hours ago you deleted the newly created page Plexonic, which as you claimed is of no indication of importance` even when there are dozens of pages like that one, which are kept "alive". Please, Sir if there are no other reasons let me re-create the article. Thank you in Advance ! --Narek75archives 19:10, 20 November 2012 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Narek75 (talkcontribs)

  • The article indeed failed to assert the company's notability or significance (generalities like that they have made "32 successful games" don't count). It cited no third-party references (coverage in reliable third-party sources is the primary notability criterion; see also the notability guidelines for companes and other organizations). Finally, first-person language ("We develop games ...") is a tell-tale sign of a promotional article. (Use of Wikipedia as a hosting service or for advertising/self-promotion is expressly prohibited by the Wikipedia policies. Such articles may be deleted, and users who persistently misuse Wikipedia may be blocked from editing.)

    If you know about another article that is promotional in nature and/or fails to assert its subject's notability, please tell me; I will nominate it for deletion as well. - Mike Rosoft (talk) 21:37, 20 November 2012 (UTC)

I have reviewed it; I am not sure I would have speedily deleted it, but the article contains no third-party references. (Coverage in reliable third-party sources is the primary notability criterion.)

I recently found that you take some bias action. You have frozen the Kingdom_of_Rajarata page after Qworty's edit. He has deleted lot of references from his edit. Also you ask me to go to talk page and haven't write message on Qworty's page.

Also you have biasly keep two strictures for identical,competitive reports LLRC and UNSG's report claiming it is under wikipedia policy. I repeatedly asked what was the policy but you never answered.

Also you saying Kingdom_of_Rajarata which established 5 century of BCE and destroyed in 13 century is claiming lasted for 18 centuries. Even references were given to show (what is in the page) it was established in 5BCE destroyed 13century you saying it is differ that 18 centuries. Then I asked how long it is. No answer yet.

AmericaTowne should not be deleted. The page is factual. AmericaTowne® is a trademark registered with the United States Office of Patents and Trademarks. This is a fact. The article does not promote but simply describe what AmericaTowne® is, what, where, and why it exist.

There is no promotion going on simply factual. If there is an objection concerning the link in the article - the link can be removed. However, the link is directly to the USA Patent Office that proves and verifies the content of the article. Strongly suggest the article remain as is in its factual and non promotional state.

Please help against Vandalism & Racist Approach[edit]

Dear Mike Rosoft (A worthy Wiki Editor)
I respect your last edit of Dilazak Page and I have not changed that. Recent change is by one Moarrikh. I have tried to engage with him for discussion many a times but his replies are arrogant, abusive and reflective of pre-determined racial & biased approach. Even his recent reply on Dilazak1 is an example to that, wherein, he has called me ‘Dilajacki’. Gangs of young Indo-Pak living in UK and other countries actually use these words to abuse each other. Indians will call Pakistanis as ‘Pakis’ and Pakistanis will call Indians as ‘Black Indians’. The same approach has been displayed by Mr. Moarrikh a number of times. His IP indicates his location from ‘Leeds – UK’. I will keep reverting his edits but that is turning into an edit war. Please help me because he is disgracing a community time and again. I request that he should be either warned or blocked from doing so.

Page deletion (💑)[edit]

This page was deleted by you because of an "implausible redirect". I really don't see how two people with a heart in between them can mean anything but love. It would be much appreciated if you could give me a factual answer. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Greedav (talkcontribs) 19:47, 26 December 2012 (UTC)

  • It's extremely unlikely that somebody would enter "💑" to the search bar and mean to find the article love. If anything, it could be redirected to the article/secion about the appropriate Unicode plane. - Mike Rosoft (talk) 19:58, 26 December 2012 (UTC)
  • However, there are many of these symbols that redirect to their respective pages, for example 💏 will redirect to "Kiss", 💎 redirects to "gemstone", and 🐢 redirects to "Turtle". If 💑 cannot redirect to love, then the other symbols should have their redirects removed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Greedav (talkcontribs) 21:35, 26 December 2012 (UTC)

Stephen Hunt - Timestamps[edit]

You keep removing the timestamps for Stephen Hunt, despite being told that they were right. See almost any other footballer's wiki page. One is supposed to add the time & date they update the appearances. This is common practise. As I said one either states a time or states "correct as of match played on [date]" I suggest you do some research before twice undoing perfectly good edits. Again, check the pages of other professional footballers, timestamps are there for a reason and it is incorrect to purely have a date. Pippin0490Talk 17:53, 27 December 2012 (UTC)

Mark St.Cyr article deletion[edit]

Dear Mr. Rosoft, For some reason I hit a key that saved the article far before I was finished as to go back and post more cites or references. This is my first attempt at an article so I may have gone overboard with dialogue. I didn't know or understand about wipkipedia referencing itself so I will change that. I will attempt creating this again while altering my approach. I understand why it was deleted and will try again hopefully with a more acceptable layout.

IS infinite stratos.[edit]

i made a change in the IS infinite Stratos episode. you seem to have changed it back. but the info is faulty as it is now. it says the character Tabane is the reason, only one guy can move a IS, but she does say in the end, she does not know, why it moves. through from that it says atm now, on episode 12 review it makes it seem like she knows and is the reason behind it. and she does not comferm that she was the one that did the hacking either. though it says so in the review. i watched it a third time, to be sure i understood it right. if you want to check what i have said yourself, go to and find episode 12 of IS infinite stratos, and go to 16:40 as the part in question starts there. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:48, 11 January 2013 (UTC)

Quick question on Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/The Age of The Universe is Wrong[edit]


I wanted to tag it for speedy delete but I couldn't find a criteria that satisfied it. Like there is nothing that allowed 'incoherent, blatant original research' to be a criteria.

Mike, I'm a volunteer at DRN and noticed this dispute, having previously dealt with it here and alerted the participants (when I closed the first request) that the article was subject to discretionary sanctions under the community decision made here and logged here. At that point in time, however, I had not spotted the EW at Sri Lanka over whether to include a link to Ethnic conflict in Sri Lanka vs Sri Lankan Civil War that was giving rise to the dispute over the orphan tag (among others) at Ethnic conflict in Sri Lanka that's given rise to the DRN listing. In light of your involvement in User_talk:Himesh84#Sockpuppetry_case, I was wondering if you might not want to give a sysop-{{Uw-sanctions}} warning to, at least, Himesh84 in light of that EW and, frankly, the IDHT editing at Ethnic conflict in Sri Lanka. I'm not an admin, so my warning might not be sufficient. Prejudice admission: I don't know which I hate more, Sri Lanka disputes or tag war disputes.

Speedy deletion nomination of Max van platen[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Max van platen requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a band or musician, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Randykitty (talk) 18:33, 3 February 2013 (UTC)

CSD - Dhriti Pati Sarkar[edit]

Just out of curiosity, how does the above article differ to the one that was previously deleted six months ago?

Re-visit Purplay?[edit]

Hiya! I did a general cleanup on the article for Purplay. It's better than it was previously and has a few other sources, but I'm still somewhat unsure if it passes WP:BAND. They've received quite a bit of coverage for copying another group's choreography, but that would probably fall under WP:ONEEVENT. I found a review for their single from one of the main newspapers in Korea and they've been on a few big shows performing their song, so I can see where someone could argue either way for notability. I figured I'd ask what you thought of the revamp of the article. Tokyogirl79 (。◕‿◕。) 09:43, 23 March 2013 (UTC)

Hi Mike Rosoft, I thought that the purpose of redirects was to help minimize confusion when people search for an article, which is why I created the redirect pages. David G. Haskell recently wrote a piece for the New York Times, and I noticed a huge coincidental spike in traffic for David Haskell, who is not the author of the NYT piece. I think that such similar names (ie "David Haskell" vs "David G. Haskell") make it especially important to have redirects, otherwise someone searching "david g haskel" might end up on the "David Haskell" page. Do you think that redirecting David G Haskell, David G. Haskel, and David G Haskel to David G. Haskell would be appropriate? Thanks, Lucien504 (talk) 17:38, 2 April 2013 (UTC)

there are three pages referring to the same thing: Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome, Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome (see letter) and Korsakoff's syndrome. It's exactly the same medical condition. It seems that the first is the best (that it all starts with capital letters). Similarly Wernicke encephalopathy should be considered to have been covered by another page Wernicke's disease.

Hello Mike. Why do you keep putting my article KTS/KPYM software up for deletion? This is an open source project that could benefit from promoting. Mach825 (talkcontribs) 01:01, 25 June 2013 (UTC)

"You have said: "This is an open source project that could benefit from promoting." That's exactly why I have nominated the article for deletion; Wikipedia is meant to be an encyclopedia, which is a compendium of existing knowledge, not a means of making something known. (Use of Wikipedia for promotional purposes is expressly against the project policies.) - Mike Rosoft (talk) 15:57, 25 June 2013 (UTC)"

Wikipedia's policy is to prevent mass commercialism. Not the promotion of knowledge. If you was going to use this argument against any article in Wikipedia then every article would have to be deleted. I am not the author of this software. I make no money from this software. I get no status from the promotion of this project. I am just an IT professional that spent my time finding existing knowledge buried on the Internet to find a tool that is very useful. Now I would like to share that tool with other Wikipedia users. So on the grounds that I am not "promoting" in the context of the policy then I respectfully ask you remove this from consideration of deletion. - Mach825 Mach825 (talk)

"* While using Wikipedia for commercial advertisements is strictly prohibited, any kind of promotional (even for non-commercial/open source/charitable endeavours) is out of the project scope. (Again, see the policy on "What Wikipedia is not"; in particular, it is not a hosting service, nor an indiscriminate collection of information.) Coverage in reliable third-party sources is the primary inclusion (notability) criterion.

So far, your project seems to have attracted little outside coverage. If that's the case, then creating an article in hope that it will help attract users and reviewers would be to put the cart before the horse. - Mike Rosoft (talk) 05:17, 27 June 2013 (UTC)" Determining notability does not necessarily depend on things such as fame, importance, or popularity—although those may enhance the acceptability of a subject that meets the guidelines explained below. I am not promoting this software. KPYM has been around since 2002. I am sure third party sources are available. I will enlist people on KPYM forum to assist me in finding addition sources. - mach825 (talk)

Articles deletion[edit]

Dear Mike Rosoft,

I apologize for the inconvenience, but have no other way than appealing for administrators’ help recover a deleted article.

I published a film article entitled Drits (Derivas), a film by Portuguese director Ricardo Costa. It is the second film from an autobiographic trilogy, Faraways. The article was kept untouched by several months. To my surprise, it was recently eliminated and redirected to the director’s page with no discussion. I undid the redirection, but saw the article was proposed to deletion. Reason: independent, verifiable, secondary resources. I argued that the article couldn’t have but primary sources (the producer’s ones) as it is an upcoming film, like many others listed at upcoming films. A film that has not yet been premiered or distributed may not be commented. Besides, none of the films so listed has ever been deleted or even contested.

At last, in discussion, user User:reddogsix proposed that the article should be renamed to Drifts (film) or similar, and at the same time put at the disambiguation page of Dritf this reference «Drifs, unreleased film by Ricardo Costa (filmmaker). I created a new page for the same article entitled Drifts (Portuguese film). As the semantic root “drift” seemed to be the problem, I replaced the article name to Derivas (Drifts) and published it once more with some improvements. As a result, the article was fast deleted and I blocked for three days.

In the meantime, a new article about the trilogy was published: Faraways, which was proposed to fast deletion as well by the same user, User:reddogsix.

Although unreleased, although having no reliable secondary sources, Drifts is unquestionably an outstanding film for its uniqueness and characteristics: autobiography, comedy, docufiction, metafiction in one. I guess that “outstanding” may be a synonym for “notable” in such cases and that articles like this shouldn’t be deleted without previous cared analyses: important information may be lost.

This sequence of interventions is clearly a personal attack by User:reddogsix, supported by two or three user friend. It has no other explanation. It contributes in nothing to improve articles quality. Mists article, which I created on 10 September 2010, is the latest example. The article structure was unreasonably modified, loosing clarity and useful content.

NOTE: sent to 30 administrators.

Thanks for your attention, User:Tertulius 22:00, 28 July 2013 (UTC)

Luis Cardenas Article, User:Rockhistoryking and User:Loudog777[edit]

Hi Mike. On August 18, 2013 you reverted vandalism to the Luis_Cardenas article and banned the vandal. That vandalism was being reverted by several users and ClueBot NG before you banned Rockhistoryking indefinitely. Prior to your banning Rockhistoryking, the same user was making edits under the sock Loudog777, but that username went largely unnoticed at the time as the account that violated the 3RR was the one you banned. Now, Loudog777 is back editing the same article with the same basic unsourced allegations in essentially the same way. I filed for a sock puppet investigation, but since the original Rockhistoryking edits were protected and archived, I didn't know how to demonstrate the similarities between the original edits, which contain the defamatory BLP claims you reverted. Can you please review the article's history to ensure that the vandalism doesn't continue? Thank you very much for all your efforts to keep WP free from vandalism. --TechnicalExcellence (talk) 16:37, 2 September 2013 (UTC)

Cat Body Temperuatre[edit]

Would appreciate you taking my contribution ot htis article in GOOD FAITH. All I did was correct the original edit, which improperly converted to 98.6. The original, CITED source did not give 37C, it gave the lower, current number. All I did was properly convert to Fahrenheit.

I've seen involvement from neither you nor the other pedantic fellow until I fixed the conversion. I was not the one to post the original temperature.

The temperature of cats at the vet is taken with a rectal thermometer. Do you really want to trudge through it to get there? (talk) 21:51, 30 September 2013 (UTC)

Mr. Rosoft, Mr. Rosoft, here is what I'm talking about. By the way, do you know a colleague of mine, A. Pull? With a handle like that, I can't believe I am justifying myself to you, but here goes!

"The normal body temperature of a cat is between 38 and 39 °C (101 and 102.2 °F).[8] A cat is considered febrile (hyperthermic) if it has a temperature of 39.5 °C (103 °F) or greater, or hypothermic if less than 37.5 °C (100 °F). For comparison, humans have a normal temperature of approximately 36.8 °C (98.6 °F). "

This is the original article before I fixed the conversion for Fahrenheit. It is cited in SOURCE 9 for the article.

I couldn't care less about code or autoconversions or where you take a cat or a human's temperature. But I know from my visits to the hospital that human body temperature is in a range and that the original figures memorized by school children were before this was realized.

(To be quite honest, I admit I'm really vexed when looking at "Category:Candidates for speedy deletion": should I delete the ones that don't assert significance, or should I fix 'em up so they do? This, of course, is my own problem, and one that I will have to resolve by myself. Face-smile.svg)

Speedy deletion declined: 300 Entertainment[edit]

Hello Mike Rosoft. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of 300 Entertainment, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: The article makes a credible assertion of importance or significance, sufficient to pass A7. Thank you. Salvio Let's talk about it! 12:00, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

Deletion of Ladell Parks[edit]

Back in 2011 you deleted a page called Ladell Parks due to your reasoning, well he has now created some buzz around the internet He has started an YouTube page which has now have over 1 million views for his music he got to be on and he is now an actor who has featured in movies as 17 again, 10 things I hate about you and he's in the new upcoming movie "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" Now is there anyway you can undelete him so I can create a sandbox or user page before making an official article on him so it doesn't get a speedy deletion. Mikeunknown (talk) 17:02, 4 March 2014 (UTC)

Muhammad Ramzan[edit]

Thank you for your quick reply on my talk page. I know that the article is in a better state now. But yet it currently not satisfy notability. But when I googled his full name (not Muhammad Ramzan). I got some good reliable sources which can be added to the article. No doubt the subject is notable. So I personally think that the AfD might be withdrawn. And I will try to rescue it, Although I don't need any barnstar for that O:-).

BTW, sorry for suspecting you. It was my fault.

If you meet again with a similar situation than please don't hesitate to let me know, because I'm always here to rescue articles. Regards. Jim Cartar (talk) 18:20, 7 March 2014 (UTC)[edit]

Article for Peace award Nomination[edit]

I intend to create an article in respect of proposed Nomination of Ayatollah Sistani for Peace Prize.Daily Telegraph’s Colin Freeman also published an article on Wednesday (4th March, 2014) in which he admitted that the best one to attain the Nobel Peace Prize at the time being is Ayatollah Sistani ( ). Your advice and approval for creation is sought. Thanks Nannadeem (talk) 19:39, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

  • There's no evidence that Ali al-Sistani has been actually nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize (and in any case, Nobel Prize nominations are not publicized); the source of this information is a blog giving the writer's personal opinion; and we don't even have an article about Colin Freeman, author of the blog. Given that, it's probably not appropriate to mention this information in an article about the cleric. - Mike Rosoft (talk) 20:29, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

Ok, thanks. Besides above, I have atleast two more sources of news [1] & ) [2] I should refrain from writing elsewhere in order to save the cause .Nannadeem (talk) 21:01, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for encourage. Can I submit you draft for creation of article here. Theme would be (1) Humanity (2) Bridge between terrorism and true tolerance (3) Source of seeking Appreciation from non religion quarters (4) Encouraging efforts to shia sect of the initiative (5) His guidance in the present scenario (6) Bright prospects of award if approved, without any comments in respect of approving/processing authorities.

Please also see the tag/temp of the present article Ali al-Sistani. Therefore I do not think it appropriate to insert a new section there. However, afterward, new article may be shorten and appropriate section may be inserted there, if deemed necessary or otherwise. Nannadeem (talk) 06:56, 13 March 2014 (UTC)

  • Careful! You are likely to run into the Wikipedia policies and guidelines once again; Wikipedia does not accept duplicate articles, and Wikipedia articles are not opinion pieces (see "What Wikipedia is not"). A brief mention of the initiative in the existing article, along the lines of "In 2014, a group of members of Iraqi parliament announced that they intend to nominate Ali al-Sistani for the Nobel Peace Prize" would be appropriate. An article that you describe would most likely not. - Mike Rosoft (talk) 10:56, 13 March 2014 (UTC)

I have inserted a new section (serial No.3) in the page - Ali al-Sistani, please see and modify if there is something inappropriate. Thanks Nannadeem (talk) 20:32, 13 March 2014 (UTC)

Head joints of recorders etc[edit]

There are two articles covering the recorder: the original Recorder (musical instrument) and Recorder (educational uses). They have recently been split to move (mis)using the recorder as a whistle, noise maker resonant cavity etc away from the more "serious" use as a developed instrument. When IP: moved the entry under whistle to refer to the latter he was correct, your reversion has returned it to point to a non-existent section. I was going to revert you, but I see that you are an administrator. Perhaps you would care to review the situation? As an ordinary, somewhat junior, editor I'm not going to object if you are planning to overrule the page split, but I feel the link should correctly reflect the situation as it exists.

Hello.

I Deleted a Page in Error[edit]

  • Hi Mike, On April 25, I had deleted a page in error (2 times) which you recovered very quickly. Thanks for the reversals!! At that time I was attempting to clear the data in my sandbox which was where I had written the text. I didn't realize that somehow my copy for editing in my sandbox had become the actual page when it was moved into a Wiki space. Do you have any advice that will prevent this from happening in the future? I see that I had asked almost the same question on April 25 for which you gave no response.
  • Also, I just discovered that on April 26, you had deleted my user page. I have been unable to determine why and what I am supposed to do now to recover this. Since you saw fit to delete my user talk page, it appears that, according to Wikipedia rules, you are supposed to tell me why it was deleted. SO I'll await a few days for response before I take other avenues of complaint.

Mursimon (talk) 18:33, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

  • (Just passing through:) No need to complain: the page was deleted as an "abandoned draft"--a user page is not the place for such content, and it hadn't been worked on in quite a while. Mike Rosoft noted that the article already exists, at Cynthia Carlson. Thank you, Drmies (talk) 19:33, 12 May 2014 (UTC)
  • OK, I won't question this any further because I don't know or understand the specific uses for each of the defined users' pages. I had simply decided that my user page was a good place to store the most recent version of my work because I had seen other people whose editing work had been deleted as unacceptable and they expressed concern that they didn't know how to recover their work. I also just saw and removed the redirection code on my sandbox page. I have no idea how that code got there and since I read that the sandbox was the place that work could be done on articles, I assumed that it was my space and not the actual Wiki article. I found out how to re-create my user page and did so. So I assume that all things are back to normal for me. Thanks for your patience. Murray Mursimon (talk) 15:36, 13 May 2014 (UTC)
  • Mursimon, part of the problem is that user pages that look like articles don't look like user pages, and are sometimes tagged as WP:FAKEARTICLE. Best thing to do (always), is to create a subpage, like User:Mursimon/draft or something like that. A sandbox, if you will. Then, when a draft is ready to go live, you simply move it (not copy and paste, but Move) to article space, which preserves the entire history, and that's always a good thing. Following that procedure also prevents administrative problems, so to speak. Happy editing, Drmies (talk) 15:41, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

Not really for much.

Hey, I restored the article for Zombeavers as I was the person who created it and I didn't really ever request deletion or blank the page. I'm not sure why CurelSchoolooljuel54321 decided to blank the page, but it looks like it was a case of vandalism since it seems like it was done after their other pages were tagged for deletion in various formats. I want to assume good faith, but I have a strong feeling that it was done out of spite because their pages were tagged. Just thought I'd give you a head's up. The only non-maintenance type edits to the article (other than the blanking) have mostly been myself and the film's director.

Mason Science College[edit]

Why are you mass-removing the word "Science" from mentions of the school? - Mike Rosoft (talk) 18:12, 20 July 2014 (UTC)

Because various publications from the time the college existed (1875-1898) show that it was normally referred to simply as 'Mason College' (these are available on the web if you need links). Also the college changed name in 1898 from Mason Science College to 'Mason University College' by Royal Charter, which it remained until 1900 when it became the University of Birmingham by royal charter. Naming it 'Mason College' removes the issue of whether to call it Mason Science College or Mason University College. Also the name Mason Science was an informal name as no Royal Charter existed until 1898 - in the deed setting it up it was called 'Sir Josiah Mason's College for Practical Science' and in other formal documents variations such as 'Sir Josiah Mason's College for Science'.'

Facebook syndrome[edit]

Hallo, Mike Facebook syndrome is a reality. It may be misunderstood as a joke but I like to mention it as an example You may see there some features that does not conform to any medical standard. If you do not keep this page in your site then I am going to publish it in another site but then I think you will not be able to call it a joke. It might appear as a new addition but it is important because it is the most important unrecognised health problem of the present day. I think you will be more realistic then before. The facebook syndrome might be added to because of its enormous importance in causing depression and dementia. Our research is going on and you may find newer additions and implications of this new syndrome.

  • I hope that you are aware that the article you want to use as a reference is half-serious, half-joking. On the other hand, I agree that your article wasn't a joke page; rather, it was scaremongering. In any case, Wikipedia does not serve for you to write on what you believe to be the world's ills, and Wikipedia articles are not opinion pieces; they need to be written in a neutral and factual manner, and need to be verifiable by means of reliable sources (and the reference must actually support the claim made in the article; needless to say, Wikipedia can't recursively reference itself).

Newbie needs help[edit]

Hey there, I'm fairly new on Wikipedia, and found a company which I interned for during university in the suggested articles list. Have been working on a draft for the past few days. I did an advanced search of the company name today and realized that there has been more that one attempt to get the page up earlier. You had deleted one of the pages created earlier. Could you possibly look at my current draft, so that I don't repeat the mistakes made earlier? You are evidently an extremely experienced member of the community, so I figured that it would helpful to chat with you regarding this. Do have a look at Draft: SoftAge Information Technology Limited when you can. Cheers PankajVer (talk) 08:52, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

New Page Patrol[edit]

Hi Mike. I noticed you patrolled and tagged Gradely for attention but you did not leave any messages for the creator. This article may or may not be appropriate for en.Wiki but it is a serious creation by a good faith editor. We need to retain editors of this calibre for Wikimedia projects, so for patrolling perhaps you could consider using the Special:NewPagesFeed and its Curation Toolbar features - especially the one that lets you leave a friendly message for the author.

Czech art[edit]

Hi Mike, I gather from your user page, that you are native English speaker, born in Prague, interested in Czech culture (List of nat. cultural monuments). I am author and coordinator of the WikiProject Knihovna umění (Art Library) in cz:Wikipedia, but my principal goal is presenting Czech art in English Wikipedia - both artists and art jewels from the collections of galleries. Would you, please, help us with translations from Czech or with proof-reading of articles in English, or (better) to address wikipedians who might be willing to participate? Thank you. --NoJin (talk) 11:01, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Tupolev Tu-4 reverted?[edit]

The Tupolev Tu-4's current Payload is wrong, being only 2,205lbs, I did the math, and the Bomb load for the Tupolev Tu-4 is: 13,227 instead of 2,205lbs, care to let me know why it was edited back to the wrong information? DemarticusStone (talk) 17:19, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Edit: Yes, that may be, but most if you look at Bomber's like the B-17, it shows how much the entire payload weighs in at, not how much each bomb weighs.
