Invitation[edit]

Hi MusikAnimal, Thanks for your third opinion, insights and guidance on the talk page of Kasowitz, Benson, Torres & Friedman.The article as a whole was in violation of NPOV and UNDUE, based on my review of all the sources and content. Therefore I made some bold edits (summarized here on the talk page) to neutralize the POV and also added new content and improve the formatting for the citations. If you have any time, please take a look at it and improve/edit as you see fit. Also, I've given new user Omaharodeo an education on WP behavioral policy on their talk page and your comments or input are welcome there as well. [1]. Many thanks for all your contributions on WP! Cheers, -- KeithbobTalk 01:09, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

@Keithbob: Hey, sorry for the delayed response. Kasowitz, Benson, Torres & Friedman is looking much better now, I think. Thanks for helping clean it up. I am a bit busy with other things... so I may not be able to help out much here. I have added templates for some relevant WikiProjects on the talk page. While I'm heavily involved with WP:NYC, I honestly have very limited knowledge or interest in WP:LAW, so I have not assessed the article's quality or importance, as I feel I may not the best person to ask. If assessment or a broader consensus on something is needed you may wish to reach out to those WikiProjects. Cheers — MusikAnimal talk 17:47, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
That's very helpful, thank you. Cheers!-- KeithbobTalk 18:43, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

User:Innovative Centre for Biosciences[edit]

May i know why the page https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Innovative_Centre_for_Biosciences (Innovative Centre for Biosciences) has been removed.

Kindly share so that we can help to edit contents. Prajil87 (talk) 08:22, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

@Prajil87: Hey there! The rationale for the deletion of the page should be visible at User:Innovative Centre for Biosciences. There was also a message left on the talk page. In short, the page appeared contained copyrighted material gathered from a variety of sources, namely icbiocro.com. Everything on Wikipedia has to be free of copyright restrictions, as we aim to make all content freely distributable. If you are the author of that text, you will need to change the website to state it released under a compatible license, or you could donate it for use on Wikipedia. See WP:DONATETEXT for more information. It may be easier to simply reword the content altogether.
If you wish to create this article again I recommend you submit it for review so that other editors can help refine it and ensure it doesn't get deleted again. You can use the article wizard to expedite this process.
Your original account was also blocked per our username policy, as it implied that multiple users may be editing under it. Similarly your new account should also be used by only one person. Any other contributors should have their own respective accounts. Hope this helps! — MusikAnimal talk 18:15, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

Sirma Solutions[edit]

Hello,

why did you delete my post about Sirma Solutions?

I do not agree it was advertising, it was just stating general facts about the company, just like many other articles in Wikipedia.

What was wrong about it? 93.123.103.130 (talk) 08:03, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Hey! I admit this was borderline G11 criteria. A more appropriate rationale would fall under WP:FAKEARTICLE, where with the blocking of the account the page would lay dormant, resembling an actual article. I apologize as this was unfairly not made clear. As for the block itself... the username implied the account may be shared amongst multiple users, which violates our username policy. Feel free to create a new account that represents you as a sole editor. Any other editors working for your organization should have their own respective accounts.
Once you've made an account, I will happily move over your work that lived at User:Sirma Solutions. From there, you can add sources to make sure it is verifiable. Once complete, I recommend submitting it for review so other editors can critique it and help refine it before publishing it to the mainspace. You can use the article wizard to expedite this process. Let me know if you need help! — MusikAnimal talk 20:23, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Barilla Group[edit]

Hello! I noticed that the Controversy section of the article on the Barilla Group has been removed again, again by an anonymous IP address that has done little or nothing else. As you're an editor who defended the section in the past, did you want to step in again? Or do you have advice for less experienced readers on how to handle something like this (e.g. whether seeing it defended by an experienced editor is enough that we should reinstate his or her edits even though we are not as conversant on the formal rules and rationales, or whether we should contact the editor so they can make the change again if they still feel it's warranted, etc.) I also see in the history that editor Mark Arsten said he protected the page, but later DumbBOT says "removing protection template from a non-protected page"; I'm not sure whether that means he didn't successfully protect it, or if the protection was removed without a comment I can spot. Any advice for handling this sort of thing in the future would be appreciated. Thanks! GCL (talk) 19:32, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

@GCL: Hi! I've chimed in with my input on the talk page. Feel free to do the same. In this sort of situation discussion always the best place to start. Consensus can shed light on what to do with the concerned content. Sometimes a third-opinion is needed, or if things get heated, dispute resolution. Mark semi-protected the article way back in September for about 10 days. After it automatically expired, DumbBOT correctly removed the visible pad-lock icon from the page. If disruption continues we may need to semi-protect again. Hope this helps! — MusikAnimal talk 00:59, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

Please block me[edit]

204.169.115.104 (talk) 20:29, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi, I see that your school IP has indeed caused some disruption. I've added a {{shared IP edu}} notice on the talk page. I'm simply not comfortable blocking beyond normal protocol, which for me would take another act of vandalism and I would only block for 31 hours. Other admins may feel different, but don't expect an indefinite block. — MusikAnimal talk 00:12, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

Spirit Soul and Body in the bible CSD[edit]

Hi there, I see that you deleted a recreated talk page for this article after I posted a note for the user who recreated it. Could you please recover that note and post to the user's talk page instead? I'm not watching the user's page and can't look up who it is, but I think you should have access to the deleted history. Thanks. Ivanvector (talk) 15:21, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

@Ivanvector: I should have probably already done this, sorry about that. The user was Arktiskblomma. I'll let you post the note so proper attribution can be given. Your comment was as follows:
Let me know if you need anything else. Cheers — MusikAnimal talk 16:49, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! Done. I collapsed the section above so that your talk page doesn't look horrible. :) Ivanvector (talk) 18:00, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
No problem, and thank you! — MusikAnimal talk 18:01, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

Huggle feature[edit]

Hey! Seen you're using Huggle. Just wanted to ask if you have used Ctrl+B (Windows) Cmd+B (Mac) either is your using Linux, it blocks the user without having to open the browser and using Special:Block, it also adds a block template to the target user talk page. Best, ///EuroCarGT 23:53, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

@EuroCarGT: I don't know how I compare to the other guys, but in detail... I never block without examining the user's editing history (was it really vandalism), talk page (make sure they were properly warned), filter log (says a lot about the user), block log, and for IPs the WHOIS (is it a school/anon block?), etc. Not sure if Huggle has all that, but if were able to compile that on one screen that would be incredible! The recent editing history at the very least I believe should always be checked. Thanks for the tip, anyway. Cheers — MusikAnimal talk 01:47, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
Good thing you check before any further action! But Huggle lists if the users has received significant user warnings (up to level 4), I also think it checks the filter log you could always check Special:AbuseLog for the recent edits the user has made. ///EuroCarGT 01:55, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

Garbage (album)[edit]

Hi. I just want to know there's a huge objection on talk page for adding "pop" genre in the infobox. Allmusic reviewer says an alternative rock album, however, he added "comes off as pop". I think "pop" that means a style or a hook, not an actual proper genre. 183.171.167.218 (talk) 00:53, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

"Huge" is right! While we all have our opinions, you need reliable sources stating the album is associated with any particular genre. Going through the debate will take considerable time that I don't have right now, but I'm happy to close it later if you feel closure is needed. You may also wish to reach out to the music genres task force on their talk page. — MusikAnimal talk 02:13, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

The Swain School[edit]

Hi! You took the speedy deletion tag off The Swain School. Redirects are indeed cheap; I'd hoped that whoever deleted it for the copyvio would then go ahead and re-create it. Perhaps I should have left a note to say so. Anyway, could I ask you either to do that, as our policy requires for foundational copyvio, or to revdelete the history to remove it from the sight of us ordinary mortals? Either would be fine with me, I just requested the former as the quicker and (from what little I understand) easier path. Many thanks for all the good stuff you do, Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 11:59, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done Thank you! — MusikAnimal talk 15:33, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
I saw! Many thanks indeed, Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 16:02, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
