Happy New Year Mojo Hand![edit]


Thanks for taking care of my user pages! Happy New Year! - Location (talk) 21:14, 3 January 2015 (UTC)

Glad to help - it keeps me from working on the hard stuff :) .--Mojo Hand (talk) 21:16, 3 January 2015 (UTC)

Re Klang Gates Dam[edit]

Suit yourself. But if you choose to hide the secret truth from Malaysians, the choice is yours ;) Loyalloudpogostick (talk) 16:41, 4 January 2015 (UTC)

Hello Loyalloudpogostick. One of the core principles of Wikipedia is that we don't publish original research or secret truths.--Mojo Hand (talk) 16:46, 4 January 2015 (UTC)

Am I to presume you're Malaysian Special Branch working to hide the truth from Malaysians that they are being used as pawns? Loyalloudpogostick (talk) 16:50, 4 January 2015 (UTC)

If so, you'd have to admit that I have developed an excellent cover - I've been on Wikipedia since 2006, focusing mostly on articles related to the US state of Virginia. I suggest you apply Occam's razor, but that's just me.--Mojo Hand (talk) 16:59, 4 January 2015 (UTC)

I am of the understanding that the officers of the Special Branch were sufficiently capable to rise to leadership ranks in the Communist Party of Malaya while remaining double agents. Knowing the importance of the pact with the Grey mission to our solar system, it is conceivable that all sources - social media, online encyclopedias would be monitored to prevent the truth getting out.

I wish you all the best Loyalloudpogostick (talk) 17:02, 4 January 2015 (UTC)

Thank You For The Welcome To the VA WP[edit]

Thank you for the welcome to the Virginia WikiProject! I will definitely let you know if I have any questions or need asssistance (provided I have first searched for myself). On another note, I notice on your page that you were looking for a modern image of the Prince Edward County courthouse building. I do believe I may have one or two photos of it (I'm a semi-pro photog) that might fit the bill. I'll see if I can dig them up. I also know that photos do exist of the old courthouse building in what is now Worsham (formerly Prince Edward Courthouse). Thank you again for the welcome. JerseyMutt (talk) 19:34, 5 January 2015 (UTC)

@JerseyMutt: Donating a copy of the Prince Edward courthouse would be awesome! It's one of the handful of VA counties that is missing a modern (or any) courthouse image. My long term goal is get them all!--Mojo Hand (talk) 19:59, 5 January 2015 (UTC)

PROD tag on Mehnga Singh Babbar[edit]

Hi, you removed the prod tag here, citing that this article was previously proded. Can you point it, when was it proded earlier? Are you referring to any deleted version of this article ? --User talk:Vigyani 03:41, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

Yes - if you look at the deletion log, you'll see that the article was previously deleted as a result of a previous prod. Accordingly, I think the right course is to put the article into AfD and hopefully get some closure to the deletion of the article.--Mojo Hand (talk) 04:32, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

Nomination of Alliance Global Group for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Alliance Global Group is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. —BarrelProof (talk) 18:51, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

Source of revision 630962097?[edit]


I would like to improve Environmental issues in Turkey but am having trouble finding the source of the quote attributed to the UN "there was a drastic drop in export growth for Turkey between 2012 and 2013, from over 16 per cent to about 3 per cent; this is closely linked to the current changes in environmental norms" and whether the link is suspected to be causal. If you can help me find this quote could you let me know via my talk page? Jzlcdh (talk) 23:21, 18 January 2015 (UTC)

Protected edit request on 19 January 2015[edit]

Hello Mojo, You sent me an e-mail on Jan 5, informing me that I had not made any further updates to my draft page Draft:Gerald Braden - Composer - Musician. Unfortunately, I was out of town, and returned to see that you deleted my draft the very next day, on Jan 6. Is there any way to retrieve this draft page? I did not know there was any time limit to keeping the draft without making any changes. Thank you! With regards,

Gerald Braden

Composer-Musician (talk) 05:13, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

The draft has been restore under WP:REFUND. Let me know if you anything else. --Mojo Hand (talk) 23:32, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

Deletion/Amalia Marquez:[edit]

Hi.. although this wikipage has been prima facie deleted, it still exists on Wikipedia as part of the user Mmyotis' user page, suspect references and all:

To be noted is the user's connection to a multi-cited website source, (sustained action/reaction), where said user has moderator/admin permissions. Vested interests apart, is this page continuation permissible under Wiki's rules/guidelines? If so, it would seem to be rather odd and some feedback would be appreciated.

Thankyou. (talk) 16:59, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

More leeway is allowed in userspace to develop article content, as it is not part of the formal encyclopedia. I don't see anything obviously wrong with the content. However, you may want to get a second opinion from User:Lankiveil, who previously listed the original article for WP:AFD and apparently looked at this in greater detail. --Mojo Hand (talk) 21:23, 22 January 2015 (UTC)


Could you restore this? I was a bit hasty yesterday.—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 21:09, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

  • Yes check.svg Done--Mojo Hand (talk) 23:00, 28 January 2015 (UTC)
    I want it gone again, sorry. A lot of shit's happening today and it's not going well.—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 23:03, 28 January 2015 (UTC)
    Sorry Mojo Hand, I had already restored it, and redeleted it on request. So I just redeleted it again after Ryulong reverted my restore edit back to his U1 request. :) ☺ · Salvidrim! ·  23:10, 28 January 2015 (UTC)
    No worries - I'm having one of those days too.--Mojo Hand (talk) 23:13, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

Success 3.0 Summit[edit]

Hi there! You had a page I created yesterday, Success 3.0 Summit, deleted. And apparently rightly so as it was about an event. So thanks for being on top of that! However, the Success 3.0 Summit is a movement as well as an event, relevant to many speakers and thought leaders, and spearheaded in part by John Mackey (owner of Whole Foods), so we would like to have a wiki page about the event and its intentions. If I were to recreate a page focusing more on the movement and thoughts behind it, as well as citing the speakers and founders more successfully (apologies, this was my first article), would such an article be left up? Thanks for keeping Wikipedia decluttered and on point. Sunnycalih (talk) 19:33, 29 January 2015 (UTC)

Hello Sunnycalih - don't feel back, as none of us are perfect here. As to likelihood of the page being kept, it's hard to say without seeing what references are available. Good references are really the key to getting articles kept on Wikipedia - see the WP:Golden rule. Good luck!--Mojo Hand (talk) 20:03, 29 January 2015 (UTC)

Mt Pleasant Public School[edit]

I was wondering why you were editing my page on Mt Pleasant Public School we are trying to make it with all the info of the school and you are changing it. Can you please stop! Thanks so much

Ninjaturkey123 (talk) 22:09, 30 January 2015 (UTC) Ninjaturkey123

Hello Ninjaturkey123. You seem to misunderstand how Wikipedia works - you may want to take a look at our introduction page. One key principle is that nobody owns any article, and editors are free to make good faith edits. Let me know if you have any other questions.--Mojo Hand (talk) 22:16, 30 January 2015 (UTC)

How do you put a lock on a page? Ninjaturkey123 (talk) 22:32, 30 January 2015 (UTC) Ninjaturkey123

Pages can be protected by administrators, but only for very specific reasons (which don't apply here). If you want to have more freedom, I suggest you look at creating a draft - see Wikipedia:Drafts.--Mojo Hand (talk) 22:40, 30 January 2015 (UTC)

AllyD page[edit]

Thanks for that - I wasn't wanting to go over the 3RR myself while warning RSK about it... Peridon (talk) 17:35, 31 January 2015 (UTC)

No worries - looks like pure vandalism/disruption. I was just debating if there was any chance of salvaging RSK, but it looks like s/he is just intent on disruption at this point.--Mojo Hand (talk) 17:40, 31 January 2015 (UTC)
I knew someone would be along soon... As their deleted editing looks like self-promo, I wouldn't think there's much chance of rescuing a useful editor. Not if he's going to go off and tag things like that. Peridon (talk) 17:55, 31 January 2015 (UTC)


Hi Mojo Hand, I see that you have deleted Aphrodisias (disambiguation) w/o a serious reason. Why unnecessary ? There are two existing articles with the same name (and probably more still waiting to be created). Next time, please be a bit more considerate before rushing to delete articles. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 19:13, 31 January 2015 (UTC)

Hello Nedim Ardoğa. I deleted the article because it had been properly proposed for deletion and not challenged for nine days - hardly a "rush". If you want to request the restoration of the page, you can. However, I agree with the stated reason - disambiguation was unnecessary in this case. Specifically, we have a clear primary subject at Aphrodisias, and the secondary subject can be disambiguated with the existing hatnote - see WP:TWODABS. Let me know if you have questions.--Mojo Hand (talk) 20:49, 31 January 2015 (UTC)


Stop deleting my page and i wont edit this page anymore — Preceding unsigned comment added by Aidan5555 (talkcontribs) 16:21, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

You don't get your way by harassing other editors. However, why don't you start by telling me which deleted page you are concerned about?--Mojo Hand (talk) 16:24, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

I dont like it and demand you stop at once — Preceding unsigned comment added by Aidan5555 (talkcontribs) 16:28, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

Recent edit[edit]

Change to Cadence ramparts - its in French. The word is rampart (but the name of the musical styles is shortened from "cadence des ramparts" to "cadence ramparts". The Haitian Creole is correctly spelled in the article as "kadans ranpa" ~~~~ ~~~~

request a deleted article[edit]

Hi, you closed Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of law firms in Uganda last year. While your closing that as "Delete" was reasonable given the discussion, I and maybe some others are now wanting to develop the topic (see discussion within current Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Birungyi Barata.), and I would like both to see the edit history and to ensure that past contributors are properly credited in a re-developed list-article. Could you possibly please restore a full copy, with edit history, of the List of law firms in Uganda article, to Draft:List of law firms in Uganda? --doncram 18:54, 9 February 2015 (UTC)

Of course - happy to help the effort. I've made the move as requested.--Mojo Hand (talk) 19:25, 9 February 2015 (UTC)

Mohammed Yunis[edit]

You deleted the article on Mohammed Yunis, as a speedy g3 -- a hoax. Yunis is one of the members of the Quetta Shura.

Could I request you review the revision history, to see if the version you thought was a hoax looked like a hoax due to vandalism? Geo Swan (talk) 20:54, 15 February 2015 (UTC)

Hi Geo Swan - the article I deleted was a few sentences created by one user. It was about a supposed Iraqi footballer who claims to be the most expensive footballer in history when he transferred from Manchester United to Real Madrid, and, despite his athletic career, apparently had a chemistry exam due. Doesn't seem like your guy, but I'd be happy to undelete for you to take a look if you think there's anything valid there.--Mojo Hand (talk) 21:55, 15 February 2015 (UTC)
  • Thanks, but if there are no edits by me in the revision history I'll just start from scratch.
Thanks for the prompt reply. Geo Swan (talk) 02:56, 16 February 2015 (UTC)

inre Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Spring Break Shark Attack[edit]

WP:NRVE. Topic notability is found through sources being available, and not through a use or not in an article... even a crappy article. Might you revisit the AFD? Thanks. Schmidt, Michael Q. 04:10, 16 February 2015 (UTC)

Wow - you know your movie sources. I would have accepted one more solid source, but you overshot by a big margin.--Mojo Hand (talk) 14:41, 16 February 2015 (UTC)

Oi You deleted Cherylyn Barnes[edit]

You Deleted Cherlyn Barnes Who is a singer Do some research and see on you tube And on Itunes Yeah?

08:13, 19 February 2015 (UTC)Chookyson121.216.238.82 (talk) 08:13, 19 February 2015 (UTC)

Hello Chookyson. I have no doubt that Cherlyn Barnes exists, but please take a look at WP:MUSIC for the kind of things that make a musician notable for Wikipedia purposes.--Mojo Hand (talk) 14:58, 19 February 2015 (UTC)

Włodzimierz Kiniorski[edit]

I prodded it, as I couldn't locate any reliable sources. Also submitted it to Polish Wikipedia AfD. Thanks for the ping. In the future, WP:POLAND may be a better place to report such issues (more eyes...). Cheers, --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 09:03, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

Merger of Tiger Blue with Yorkshire Tiger[edit]

Good Afternoon,

I have seen that you have un-merged Tiger Blue from Yorkshire Tiger. I have left a week for discussion and no responses where made and the Wikipedia rules where followed. Tiger Blue is being potrayed as a separate company when this is very much not the case. By carrying out a check on the Traffic Area Network of VOSA will show that all Tiger BLue routes have been re-registered with Yorkshire Tiger.

Could I ask to your reasons for un-merging?
