Disambiguation link notification for November 10[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Neri Parenti, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Merry Christmas (film). 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.

Hi Noyster, I want to talk to u... Need your help... About Sambrial page. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Wikistar 002 (talkcontribs) 18:52, 28 November 2014 (UTC)

Re:[edit]

Thanks for your reply. As for you saying that I may open an account, I am not that skilled at knowing passwords or usernames so the only way I can edit is just as anonymous sadly. I have recently added to the Edward Smith page the statements that he made when asked if he was faced with disaster. I have also removed Henry Senior from one of the pargraphs because as shown "Shots in the Dark"; The reliability of his statements is unknown. Also who says Daniel's story is apocryphal?

I have also added your reply to me on the article's talk page, although I probably should have asked first, sorry.— Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.13.54.185 (talk) 16:28, 12 November 2014 (UTC)

That's OK, any page on Wikipedia is visible to all, even my talk page here can be viewed by anyone if they care to look. I added the citation for the Daniel Allen Butler quote, as I saw it in your original enquiry. I would say you are going the right way about this, sticking to the sources, even if you don't choose to open an account: Noyster (talk), 16:52, 12 November 2014 (UTC)

Help[edit]

Hello, Thank you for your recent edits. I really appreciate your help. I noticed that you did a professional edit for one of my article Ganesh Regmi. I am kind of in need of help on this article please. The Wikipedia is trying to delete this article because they did not find good reference or something. Can you please help me to keep this article? Editing and adding enough information on this article so that it cannot be deleted? I look forward for your reply soon. Thank you.

Right, well since you didn't say, you are User:Gregmi69. This alone raises concern about what we call "conflict of interest". You may be the person this article is about, or be closely related to him. If so, we would encourage you to write about other topics instead. Someone else has already put a warning about this on your own talk page.
Now about the Ganesh Regmi article: when we add articles about living people, we are strict about having "reliable sources" to support the information. Of the five sources currently listed, the first appears to be Regmi's own website, and the second and third are just directory entries: none of these would be accepted as sources for this article. What we need is references to anything written about Regmi or his films by other, independent people and published in widely-read newspapers, magazines or books, or major news websites. If this kind of coverage cannot be found, we have to conclude that Regmi is not yet "notable" enough to have an article in Wikipedia. What we mean by "notable" is briefly explained in this guidance.
The last two websites in the list I cannot connect to, and if others also have this problem, then they won't help either. Please don't quote YouTube, Facebook or Twitter as "sources", as none of these are independent of the subject.
Lastly, I am sorry to have to say that the article before I edited it was far from Wikipedia standards. It was so far out as to make me think you should take a look at some other Wikipedia articles, about anything that interests you, to learn more about how articles are normally written and what they contain. The welcome message you were sent also links to useful guidance about how to contribute. In one sentence, we don't prefer one belief or opinion over any other, we stick to known facts and always refer back to what has already been published on the subject. So what I suggest is that before contributing again, you take some more time to find out more about how we work, and perhaps polish up your English a little more. Good luck: Noyster (talk), 17:45, 14 November 2014 (UTC)

Kushboo[edit]

bro whats wrong with my edit in kushboo page? please help me mate. i am all new to this wikipedia editing. thanks in advance. Weedo vivek (talk) 08:41, 17 November 2014 (UTC)weedo_vivekWeedo vivek (talk) 08:41, 17 November 2014 (UTC)

Well Weedo it's what you have been told several times: Wikipedia articles should refer only to facts and interpretations that have been stated in print or on reputable websites or other forms of media and Please do not add commentary or your own personal analysis to Wikipedia articles... Doing so violates Wikipedia's neutral point of view policy. In short it's all about reliable sources and neutral point of view.
Let's see what was not acceptable in your Kushboo edit:
  1. She supports a lot of causes like Walk in the Dark What other causes? Where's the reliable source which has reported this?
  2. After quitting DMK rumours were rife she was going to join other political parties. In what reliable sources have these rumours been published? Probably none, as if it was that "reliable" it wouldn't publish mere "rumours".
  3. She is one activist who walks the talk. An opinion, not neutral at all but trying to make the person look good. If any such opinion been published by an independent source, say where.
What would we need instead? Examples:
  1. She supports Walk in the Dark<ref>[reference A]</ref> and [another cause]<ref>[reference B]</ref>
  2. After she left DMK, [major news magazine] reported that she intended to join [named other party]<ref>[reference C]</ref>
  3. She has been described in [major newspaper] as "..."<ref>[reference D]</ref>
This way of editing is effort I know, but it's the only way for your work to succeed on Wikipedia. A fairly readable guide to adding references is here. Good luck: Noyster (talk), 12:58, 17 November 2014 (UTC)

Removal of YouTube links to user-created videos[edit]

I'll first admit that I am a new contributor to Wikipedia, so I appreciate any further guidance on what is and is not acceptable edits. For reference, I recently added YouTube links to an existing article that summarizes the episodes posted by Watch It Played. Those links were removed but I thought they were acceptable based on them being user-created videos that are not copyrighted. Could you please clarify which aspect of the policy on posting YouTube video links was in violation? If it is a matter of using references, should I follow the same model as this Wikipedia site which uses YouTube video links: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_most_viewed_YouTube_videos

The service that I am seeking to offer is one that has been requested by others who have discovered the same Wiki page in that they were looking for a means to view a referenced game. I would like to provide that value in a way that is in accordance with the Wikipedia guidelines.

Thanks, Peter --Paspooner (talk) 16:22, 21 November 2014 (UTC)paspooner

Hi Peter and thanks for your interest in Wikipedia.
Sorry your first efforts met with reverts, first by the bot then by me. The problems with adding all the YouTube links are, (1) as indicated here there's no guarantee that the links are both technically accessible to all and legally acceptable, (2) in quantity they risk turning the article into a directory or "linkfarm".
Your own suggestion of using reference format, as in the List of most viewed YouTube videos, is a very reasonable one and would largely remove the objections. Also you wouldn't need to add an extra column to the table. There's even a handy template for formatting YouTube references. All you do is paste the following into the places you want to insert a reference:
<ref>{{Youtube | ID | Title }}</ref>
and replace ID with the YouTube ID of the particular video (e.g. zu_pitEH974), and TITLE with the title of the video. You may even want to do the same with the other YouTube links which (I now see) are in the lower table in the article.
Best of luck and come back to me if you have any further queries, or try the Teahouse: Noyster (talk), 18:43, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the quick response Noyster. I greatly appreciate your advice and consultation. I've updated the page (except for the other table that you noted) using the guidance you provided. I'll get to that one soon if the current edits are acceptable. Again thanks for your time and efforts with me. --Paspooner (talk) 16:29, 24 November 2014 (UTC)paspooner

Avalon Connection to Sicily (Avalon is Sicily)[edit]

The answers to all your questions on this topic you can find on the page of Avalon, check the chronology of the "Talk Page". The whole truth and the reality is contained in a long speech of Sweet Xeper(user). To some this was inconvenient and that's why it was censored, goodbye...--151.44.228.76 (talk) 01:46, 22 November 2014 (UTC)

You sincerely believe that you have the "whole truth" about Avalon. Other Wikipedia editors have disagreed, and this is what talk pages are for: to discuss and finally agree on how the article is going to reflect the different views. Your lengthy insertion on the talk page didn't give a clue how you proposed to reach an acceptable balance in the article. Unfortunately the other editor removed it entirely, and you re-inserted it and so on, which is no discussion and is explicitly forbidden here as "edit warring". (This applies even to those who edit from different IP addresses, which only hampers communication). If you wish to continue on Wikipedia, please make more effort to work collaboratively with others: Noyster (talk), 08:50, 22 November 2014 (UTC)

Microlax error[edit]

Hi. Thank you for a warm welcome. Can you please have a look at Microlax article that I've created. I cannot fix the error in reference #3. What's wrong with it? -- 08:00, 22 November 2014 (UTC)

Hello User:Bbarmadillo. In the cite web template you used, the field name "title = " was missing in front of the US patent number. I've now inserted this, and hope the result is what you wanted. If not, the free-text fields you have available in the template are lastname, firstname, title and publisher, and you can distribute your information over these as you see fit. Oh, and could you sign your talk-page posts with the ~~~~, so we can see straight away who you are? Regards: Noyster (talk), 08:32, 22 November 2014 (UTC)
Thanks a lot! I see now that the error was in the title tag. -- Bbarmadillo (talk) 09:49, 22 November 2014 (UTC)

RSOL Page Fixup[edit]

Thanks for your heads-up about problems with the new article Reform Sex Offender Laws, Inc. I've contacted the person who set it up for us, and we will work to fix the problems. Hopefully wikipedia will be patient as we do so. Neither of us have created an article before. I understand better about the conflict of interest, and needing to change the references. I'm planning to put a draft copy on my user page (or hers) so we can remove things that are not verifiable according to policies, or find the right kind of references, and run the drafts past you guys. Is it okay to leave up what is there, for the moment? Not sure how fast we can work. PS - if we can talk on MY talkpage I would appreciate it. Still getting used to all the Wiki markups.

Hello Pam. Doesn't look as if we can. The editor seems impervious to anything on their talk page, and has not enabled email. In such a case, talk of "collaboration" misses the mark.

Captain Smith's actions[edit]

I am deleting the following from the Edward Smith page;

"Captain Smith, aware that there were not enough lifeboats for all of the passengers and crew, appeared to have become emotionally paralyzed by indecision as he began to realize the enormity of what was about to happen. He did not issue a general call for evacuation, failed to order his officers to load the lifeboats, failed to supervise and coordinate the evacuation effort, did not adequately organize the crew, withheld crucial information from his officers and crewmen, and gave sometimes ambiguous and impractical orders; in one example in an hour after the collision, Fourth Officer Joseph Boxhall was still unaware that the ship would sink."

This is just one of those often repeated myths accepted as hearsay; the truth is that Smith was quite active from all eyewitness accounts in overseeing the loading and launching of the boats. There is no evidence he suffered a breakdown or became paralyzed by indecision. Captain Smith was extremely busy during the whole evacuation. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.144.254.239 (talk)

My edit of Analytical Engine[edit]

Hi, I'm not sure I get the reason why my edit on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Analytical_Engine#In_popular_culture was rejected. The phrase "One such engine even develops sentient thought due to a recursive algorithmic loop" is, to the best of my knowledge, wrong, since "sentient" is an adjective. It should either be "becomes sentient" or "develops sentience" (my edit). For the sake of honesty, English is not my native language, but the difference seems pretty clear to me. Fndari (talk) 10:49, 15 December 2014 (UTC)

Hi Fndari. "Sentient thought" is an expression frequently encountered. The adjective "sentient" qualifies the noun "thought", as in "deep thought". We could think deeply about what exactly is meant by "sentient thought". I would take it to mean "thought, as performed by a sentient being". However, "sentience thought" is two nouns together, and I can assure you that it would not be considered normal English usage. Thank you for your interest and I look forward to your further contributions: Noyster (talk), 11:00, 15 December 2014 (UTC)
For some reason I completely missed the "thought" after "sentient". My apologies! I agree that the phrase in its original version is correct. Sorry for the confusion.Fndari (talk) 11:39, 15 December 2014 (UTC)

Question about getting the "This biographical article needs additional citations for verification" tag removed[edit]

Hi, I have been working on updating the page "Theo Colborn," and have included many more citations. This page has an alert box stating "This biographical article needs additional citations for verification," How do I go about getting the alert box at the top of the page removed?

Thank you, Jrrochester (talk) 20:21, 15 December 2014 (UTC)

Greetings Jrrochester and thank you for your contributions to the article on Theo Colborn. I see another editor has now removed the template message or "tag" about needing additional citations, as its wording is no longer applicable due to the recent death of Theo Colborn. It is open to any editor to remove such tags when they consider they have dealt with the problem. Equally, any editor may add tags to an article when they perceive a problem. In either case, they should be prepared to defend their action if challenged. More about tagging can be found at this page. Let me stress though that it is always valuable work to improve the referencing of any Wikipedia article, thus your efforts are much appreciated: Noyster (talk), 09:27, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

Avalon is Sicily[edit]

The more ancient tales of Arthurian characters speak of the fairy Morgan who lived Etna ... the main feature of Avalon and to be the residence of the fairy Morgan ... and stories following the same geographical area and ethnic speaking of Sicily as avalon. The sources (sicily):Stephen of Rouen (ca.1169) draco normannicus (standard of the normans);Floriant et Florete (ca.1250);Guillem Torroella (1360-70) the Faula;Gervase of Tilbury (ca.1210) otia imperialia;Caesar of Heisterbach (approx) dialogus miracolorum;Stephen of Bourbon (1261) like Caesar;Cat Lupet (pseudonym of an Italian poet XIII approx);Wolfram von Eschenbach (ca. 1210) Parzifal;Le Chevalier du papegau (approx XIV);Jaufre (ca.1180) Arthurian romance langue d'oc;La Bataille Loquifer (ca1170);Roger of Hoveden (ca.1191) deeds henrici II (legacy excalibour);Jean de Preis or d'Outremeuse (ca.1400) (mediterranean avalon). (a) The island belongs to Morgan le Fay( connection with Morgan le Fay; main feature) and in the sources is often spoken of Mount Etna indicated as Aetna, and Arabic Gibel or MontGibel. The Sicily is really Avalon and all these texts are available online (look for them on google).

Eric Ambler novels[edit]

Many thanks, Noyster I will certainly reread the guidance. I am striving to eliminate all subjectivity in order to make these articles as factual as possible. I am also reading articles about other novels to see how other people have introduced more referencing, but this is proving a challenge since there isn't much written directly about Ambler's novels; they're not famous enough. Astrofella (talk) 13:18, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

@Astrofella:If this were so then we could have to conclude that the books were not "Notable" enough to have their own articles, by the tests outlined here. This would be a disappointing outcome, for an author even I have heard of: perhaps the people at WP:WikiProject Literature could help find sources: Noyster (talk), 16:26, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

Pk[edit]

Hi noyster. Thanks for guiding me how wikipedia works. This editor red pen of doom is spreading false propaganda and his own point of view which is quite disappointing and laughable. He needs to be cautioned because he's a comparatively old user. Expecting a reply as a new user. Regards. 2.49.19.192 (talk) 13:23, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

@2.49.19.192: Thank you for your enquiry. None of us should be spreading "our own point of view" in Wikipedia articles. The reason why I and Red Pen of Doom were reverting contributions was that, to all appearances, they were merely the opinions of the editors themselves. Some of the edits from your IP address were deleting sourced content or adding nonsense characters, so it is obvious that they would be reverted. Your later edits did quote references for the opinions given and this is what is needed, thus those edits have been retained and I hope you will continue to make constructive contributions in that manner: Noyster (talk), 22:45, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
