== Remember the 13th ==--John Nagle (talk) 06:29, 19 February 2014 (UTC) Hey, the current people editing the article might be socks of the original people that created the first version of the article last year. It might be worthwhile to open up an SPI, but I'll leave it up to you. Tokyogirl79 (。◕‿◕。) 04:44, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

CBR at RegisterFly[edit]

You need to google the titles of all the CBR articles preferably inside the CBR site; they have moved the content around, e.g. the first article cited is now at Then you need to file a quest with the list of new/working URLs at MediaWiki talk:Spam-whitelist. Otherwise sooner or later a busy body will come and remove all those references entirely. Hope this helps. Someone not using his real name (talk) 19:51, 1 March 2014 (UTC)

Banc de Binary[edit]

Hello, thanks for suggesting rollback on the Banc de Binary page, it's been whitewashed by CorporateM, a paid for editor. Is there anything that can be done about these kinds of users and their huge text editing?HistorianofRecenttimes (talk) 11:38, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

Please stop adding unreferenced or poorly referenced biographical content, especially if controversial, to articles or any other Wikipedia page, as you did at Talk:Banc De Binary. Content of this nature could be regarded as defamatory and is in violation of Wikipedia policy. If you continue, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. Evidence. Okteriel (talk) 08:16, 10 June 2014 (UTC)
That Banc de Binary violated US law is clearly established. SEC litigation release: [1]. CFTC litigation release: [2]. Wall Street Journal article.[3]. Banc de Binary admitting their press release claiming CFTC clearance was "inaccurate": [4]. Banc de Binary agreed to stay out of the US, and the SEC and CFTC didn't take the matter further. John Nagle (talk) 18:54, 10 June 2014 (UTC)
Okteriel was just blocked as a sockpuppet, so I wouldn't worry about his nonsense. I reverted his edit of your talk page comment as soon as I saw it. Coretheapple (talk) 20:24, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

Hey, I know that things have been getting a bit heated with the Banc de Binary situation. I just wanted to reach out to you about this comment. While such comments may seem to be directed at an organization, we have to remember that sometimes individuals of these organizations could take it as a bit of a personal attack towards themselves. I think it might be best to focus on the content and not make comments towards the contributors. Hopefully we can all be mindful of what we say so that we can have a nice, civil discussion. Thanks for your consideration and I look forward to working with you and everyone else in improving the article. Mike VTalk 05:21, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

That particular issue has already been hashed out on WP:ANI. The consensus was that it's not an unreasonable statement given their record with regulatory agencies. John Nagle (talk) 06:01, 12 June 2014 (UTC)
I don't think I could agree that there was a consensus formed on ANI that such comments were appropriate. Regardless, a discussion at ANI does not supersede one of the core principles of this project. All I'm asking is that we all refrain from any name calling and focus on building an article. Mike VTalk 17:51, 12 June 2014 (UTC)
Read this new CFTC litigation release.[5] Any questions left about this not being an illegal operation? John Nagle (talk) 18:25, 12 June 2014 (UTC)
I did see it and for the time being the most important point to note is that the article states "alleged violations". Until it has been proven in a court of law, the actions of the company shouldn't be deemed "illegal". Over time, the court matters will be finalized and more conclusive statements can be made. Remember, Wikipedia is first and foremost an encyclopedia, not a news source or the "court of public opinion". There's no deadline and there is no need to rush to any conclusions before due process has been done. Mike VTalk 19:48, 12 June 2014 (UTC)
True. We can also cite BdB's reply in court, if you can find it. The current issue in that case is that the court has ordered Oren Laurent to come to Washington DC for a deposition. His lawyers are fighting that. But he's a US citizen, and, as the court points, out, if you're a US citizen, you have to come when the courts call. That will be interesting. John Nagle (talk) 20:59, 13 June 2014 (UTC)
Regards, Nagle, and Mike V. Based on your discussion above, I wonder if you could discuss the validity of Nagle's statement in a new Incidents thread, "The CFTC told them in 2013 they were operating illegally in the US", as it appears to be relevant.
I must confess that I do not want to believe that some concern has set itself up to perpetuate in Wikipedia talkpages the rumor that BDB has committed criminal acts, recognizing not only Wikipedia's influence in public opinion, but also the influence of Wikipedia talkpage rumors upon Wikipedians who then shape public opinion. But the more evidence I am shown that there exists a coordinated effort to spread false rumors of our lawlessness on Wikipedia talkpages, the more I tend to view the hypothesis credible. BDBIsrael (talk) 21:54, 13 June 2014 (UTC)
We're well beyond rumor. BdB is in Federal court. Anyway, this belongs at Talk:Banc de Binary. John Nagle (talk) 22:00, 13 June 2014 (UTC)
User:TParis has convinced me that Nagle's statement is borderline rather than clearly a violation. However, the issue of coordinated effort to spread rumors is not a matter for the article talkpage. Suffice. BDBIsrael (talk) 22:10, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

Nikita Kahn[edit]

Hello, can you have someone delete the page please, immediately. I will redo the page once I have fixed her IMDB credits and have more sources to cite. Infideastudios (talk) 22:03, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for July 18[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Daniel Epstein (pianist), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Daniel Epstein. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Left that link in, because the human name, "Daniel Epstein", without a middle initial, is the same for both the article and the disambiguation page. John Nagle (talk) 17:55, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
Hi. DPL bot will send this message whenever you don't use appropriate hatnote syntax. And since it is a bot, it does not understand your reply. Oh, and just a heads up: Someone shared your reply on Facebook.

Heritage Action[edit]

Hi again John. If you have not seen, I updated my Heritage Action draft to incorporate one of the sources you provided. I would still like to take a little time reviewing the other three, so if there is specific information from those sources you would like included in my draft please let me know.

I also want to respond more specifically to your comment from both Talk:Heritage Action and COIN that updating a full article in this fashion is frowned upon by Wikipedia. I understand that it is a large undertaking, but in an interview for the Signpost Jimbo Wales says the following about COI editors:

You are free to enter into a dialogue with the community on talk pages, and to suggest edits or even complete new articles or versions of articles by posting them in your user space.

Again, I do understand that I'm asking a lot from volunteer editors, and if you feel that you simply don't have time, that's totally fine—I'll continue to reach out to others and see if they might have some time to help. Thanks, Morzabeth (talk) 21:08, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 17[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Stamping (metalworking), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Embossing.

my COIN posting[edit]

if you have a moment, i'd appreciate your thoughts on Pmy COIN posting. if you think i am out to lunch, i would get that. I posted asking for feedback and am just pinging you as you seem to participate in that page. thanks Jytdog (talk) 21:59, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

Carmine Miranda[edit]

Hie, While i appreciate the edits you made on this article Carmine Miranda, there was no call to state that the Distinguished Award is the lowest awards as if makes it any less notable than the Grand Prize. While it is indeed not the Grand Prize, your statement becomes an expression of opinion as opposed to just stating the fact that he received this awards. Could you please revise your edit so it doesn't detract from the fact that Carmine was awarded a Distinguished Musician Award at one of the most competitive classical music competitions in the world. Thank you Lilianarice (talk) 21:20, 14 November 2014 (UTC)

The organization does not call the Distinguished Musician category an "award". Nor was there a "special mention". So it's a "category of recognition", rather than an "award". The IBLA Grand Prize is a big deal; the winner gets to play at Carnegie Hall. This is three levels down from that. John Nagle (talk) 21:38, 14 November 2014 (UTC)

Jack Herer[edit]

I just came across the article on Jack Herer and found that it contained a lot of un- and badly sourced advocacy, some of it added very recently. I weeded out most of it, then found your name on the talk page. If and when you find the time, it would be great to have a second pair of eyes on it, just to make sure I didn't overdo it. -- (talk) 23:31, 19 November 2014 (UTC)

Sigh. There's some standard misinformation that floats around amongst hemp-related sites, and it creeps into Wikipedia now and then. I'll look. John Nagle (talk) 00:10, 20 November 2014 (UTC)

NQ Mobile Inc[edit]

You took out all the products and this is the second time someone removed a bunch of stuff. When I started there was a product list and I just tried to add some of the new products. In addition I did a lot of reading before putting up just a few products as highlights but from what I read you've missed the mark entirely.

NQ Mobile is a holding company and has nearly a dozen subsidiaries all revolving around mobile. The tiny little bit you've written while removing the info on some of their actual products is discouraging to say the least.

Additionally, I don't understand why the need to try to clarify that they are not a cell phone carrier as there are many different types of mobile devices and anyone who confuse internet services with carriers probably needs to read more than the first line of the webpage.

Rgeurts (talk) 22:56, 2 December 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia is not a vehicle for promotion. The article looked too much like advertising and was referred to WP:COIN for that reason. John Nagle (talk) 23:11, 2 December 2014 (UTC)

Link building[edit]

Hnancy (talk) 05:24, 3 December 2014 (UTC)Hello I am Hnancy and I am currently editing the link building page. Someone mentioned that I made an ad for a SEO book which is totally unacceptable to me. I am currently an informatics student at UW and it is really my project to improve the contents of a wikipedia page. I never heard of the Moz company before that the only reason I used their resource is that I thought it was a published article that has good value. I used searchenginejournal because it has the similar resource I needed. (I didn't realize it has backlins to Moz?) By now I couldn't turn in my homework in time as I didn't improve the contents a lot. I am new to wikipedia editing team and I accept recommendations from other editors with respect. I am now editing the conflicts section and I want to add a new section called "link building tactics" to briefly mention some common strategies of link building.

Answering on your talk page. John Nagle (talk) 05:49, 3 December 2014 (UTC)

Jerry Yang[edit]

Hello! I've created a new draft of the article for Jerry Yang, per an earlier discussion on the article's Talk page. I know you had some trepidation about a COI editor writing a new draft, so I wanted to be sure you have a chance to take a look and share feedback if you like. Thanks, and happy new year! Mary Gaulke (talk) 16:45, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

Dany Bahar[edit]

Hi John – I've posted on the Dany Bahar talk page. If you could take a look at some point that would be much appreciated. Many thanks. HOgilvy (talk) 14:21, 10 January 2015 (UTC)

Thanks John. HOgilvy (talk) 09:33, 12 January 2015 (UTC)
I posted at COIN a couple of days ago. I see DocumentError has been blocked. Happy to work with you, or whoever might be willing, to arrive at a consensus version. Thanks. HOgilvy (talk) 15:22, 17 January 2015 (UTC)
