What to do if you find a copyright violation[edit]

I think the difficulty in finding meta documents, be they copyright related or not, is one of the biggest failings of wikipedia and I'm not sure there's a simple solution to it. Personally I like the toolbox idea, given the importance of copyright but firstly I'm not sure how it could be done and second it would probably need community wide consensus. I'll look into it some more. The flow chart one also isn't a bad idea. I think part of the issue here is finding the time to do it. There's barely enough editors working on copyright problems to deal with the problems we get let alone look into this issue. I'm thinking what we may need is a discussion to work out a way forward. I'll think about trying to start one. Dpmuk (talk) 23:10, 1 February 2012 (UTC)

Splits[edit]

For dealing with the Split requests backlog. SilkTork ✔Tea time 02:02, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

I'm pleased to see that you have been tackling the Split requests, and also that you are discussing matters with the people who requested the splits - that's very good. I have been working on them for some time now (about two years I think), and it's great to see someone else take an interest. Wikipedia:Splitting, Wikipedia:Article size, Wikipedia:Summary style and Wikipedia:Content forking are useful guideline to consult when considering a split - as well, of course, as the basics like Wikipedia:Verifiability and WP:Notability. In general, when considering a split, bear in mind that there needs to be reliable sources which indicate some form of notability. Often splits haven't been done because the material that has been requested to be split isn't actually notable enough for a stand alone article. It may be that the material is appropriate as part of a parent article, or it may be that the material isn't important enough to be on Wikipedia at all, but nobody has yet got around to removing it. Sometimes it is difficult to know what to do, and I support the notion of you making a decision rather than simply letting matters slip by. I admire people who follow WP:Bold - that's how we make progress; however, we also need to check that we are not simply shuffling around a problem from one area to another. When you split Babes in the Wood murders into multiple articles, for example, some of those articles you created have questionable status - Babes in the Wood murders (Watton, Norfolk), for example, has no sources at all, and Babes in the Wood murders (Pine Grove Furnace) has a cite which doesn't mention the incident, though there do appear to be some sources available, even if not exactly reliable. It's worth considering where exactly to place the material - and if it is to be in a standalone article, to ensure that there is enough material to justify a standalone, and that there are an appropriate amount of reliable sources to establish notability. I'll be happy to work with you on Babes in the Wood murders, looking at how it was and talking through what could be done with the material. I think the comments on the talkpage are worth reading, as the article creator is aware of the problems. SilkTork ✔Tea time 02:02, 9 February 2012 (UTC)


I accept that when I started systematically sorting out the split tag issue that I may have been over enthusiasic and some items perhaps need to be re-visited. I have noticed that removing split tags has caused much less difficulty than splitting as requested. I noticed for instance that you reverted my split of Allers, as an example, and now I am of the view that such articles I would probably just de-tag. At the end of the day, I don't mind being reverted as long as an alternative solution is found. Regarding Babes in the wood murders, I think perhaps we should move the discussion to the talk page of that article. Op47 (talk) 23:21, 9 February 2012 (UTC)
I have no problems with over enthusiasm at all! I have more of a problem with the apathy and inertia that results in split tags being ignored for years and years. And the nature of the split request is that there isn't an easy solution - some people may (and do) disagree, and sometime mistakes are made. The nature of life is that mistakes are made - I would rather people were bold and made a decision, than do nothing for fear of making a mistake. Mistakes can be undone. The key is being willing to discuss, and to learn from all experiences. Having worked through several hundred split requests I have found that most requests are inappropriate. It seems that the nature of asking for a split in itself shows that people are unsure. And if a request has been lying around for more than 12 months with no action and no support, then it is likely to be inappropriate. However, each request needs to be studied - and some are really quite complex. The solution may not always be a new article - but may be a merge of the contentious material in a more appropriate parent article. Sometimes it is a case of removing or reducing the material. Sometimes a new article is warranted - and that sometimes means finding reliable sources. However, as you are finding, mostly it's a case of removing the tag, and leaving a reason.

Page moves[edit]

I may have been a little unclear - there are non-controversial and controversial page moves. I was referring to an non-controversial move as a "normal" move.

When a page has been discussed for a move before, and has not been moved or people have objected, one can consider it under the guidelines listed here: Wikipedia:Page_move#Before_moving_a_page (in particular items 5 and 6)

Under these circumstances it is best to follow the guidelines on Wikipedia:Requested moves. Basically a move template is created as given in the notes at Wikipedia:Requested_moves#Requesting_a_single_page_move, Wiki projects (such as Wikipedia:WikiProject Poland and Wikipedia:WikiProject Ukraine) are informed, and discussion can then start on if it should be moved and if so where to.

I hope this answers your questions. I am only concerned that the right Wiki projects get notice so that as many people as possible can be made aware of the intended move and hopefully join the discussion.

As a matter of interest, referring to Ukraine as "the ukraine" is not quite correct, similar to saying "the Poland" or "the Russia". Chaosdruid (talk) 13:18, 17 February 2012 (UTC) PS - when searching for wikipedia topics, rather than articles, you should put WP: in the search. For example, to search for move guidelines type "WP:move page" rather than just "move page". Chaosdruid (talk) 13:20, 17 February 2012 (UTC)

Splitting[edit]

Hello Silktork,

I see that you have finished the troublesome splits from last year. Very Good. Op47 (talk) 22:29, 19 April 2012 (UTC)

Yes - there were some awkward ones there. I have been wondering for some time now if there should be a system in place for splits the same as for mergers - Wikipedia:Proposed mergers. Often there is no or little discussion so it can be difficult to find consensus, and when acting on a request either to do the split or decline it, there can be objections due to lack of input from others.

Proposed deletion of By-elections to the 29th Canadian Parliament[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article By-elections to the 29th Canadian Parliament has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Is there really much point in this having its own article? Can't it just be mentioned in a parent article?

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Nomination of By-elections to the 29th Canadian Parliament for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article By-elections to the 29th Canadian Parliament is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/By-elections to the 29th Canadian Parliament until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. 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 template from the top of the article. Delsion23 (talk) 22:54, 26 November 2012 (UTC)

List of pipeline accidents in the United States before 1900[edit]

This is an automated message from MadmanBot. I have performed a search with the contents of List of pipeline accidents in the United States before 1900, and it appears to be very similar to another Wikipedia page: List of pipeline accidents in the United States. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case. If you are intentionally trying to rename an article, please see Help:Moving a page for instructions on how to do this without copying and pasting. If you are trying to move or copy content from one article to a different one, please see Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia and be sure you have acknowledged the duplication of material in an edit summary to preserve attribution history.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. MadmanBot (talk) 19:37, 22 December 2012 (UTC)

List of baronetcies in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom: B[edit]

Every page in articlespace has to have at least one category declared directly on the page itself and not transcluded by a template. Wikipedia's system for detecting uncategorized pages is not able to detect artificially transcluded categories, but only the kind that are directly declared — so if there isn't a direct category declaration on the page itself, then there's no way to prevent it being picked up as an uncategorized page (and we can't just leave it there as a permanent fixture of the list, either.)

Also, if you read WP:TEMPLATECAT, you'll see that there are numerous other reasons why using templates to artificially transclude categories onto pages is not recommended in the first place — for instance, if somebody uses the template on a sandbox page, then it becomes impossible to remove that page from the category. The rule is that administration templates may transclude maintenance categories, but a navigational template is not allowed to transclude a content category — content categories are only allowed to be declared directly on the page itself.

Vandalism[edit]

Hellow SilkTork, I am sorry to trouble you. This year, I have had to remove the same hoax from Nescafé 3 times. Is there a case to be made for having the article protected in some way and if so, who would be the best person to approach? Op47 (talk) 21:43, 26 July 2013 (UTC)

The Nescafé article does experience occasional low level unhelpful edits from IP accounts; however, the article also benefits from edits from IP accounts, so blocking all IP accounts from editing the article at this stage would be inappropriate. I have tracked down the IP account responsible and blocked it for three months - see User talk:94.192.35.21. Even though it appears a static account, unused by anyone else, and it has made inappropriate edits a year apart, and also to the Crow article, we don't generally issue long term blocks on IP accounts, especially for such low level disruption, so three months is the most I can dish out at this stage. It is possible that the person behind the account may do it again next year from the same IP account - if so, let me know, and I'll give a longer block. SilkTork ✔Tea time 23:12, 26 July 2013 (UTC)

Someone has obviously a different view and moved the template to the top of the page.

Perhaps I should have been clearer above. I know about RfCs for individual articles. The problem is that WP:CLN which is is a guide line gives no guidance on the formatting etc. of nav boxes, but rather it refers to WP:NAV, which is an essay rather than an official guideline. I would like to have a clear guideline/standard for nav boxes. The reason is that at present there are about 100 articles that require to be split up like this. It would be an enourmous pain to have to raise RfCs on each one. How do I go about (e.g.) making WP:NAV policy? Op47 (talk) 12:39, 6 October 2013 (UTC)

If this edit is what you refer to: That's not a navbox but rather a customized table of contents (note that the page doesn't have a "true" table of contents any more).
If you want to elevate WP:NAV to a guideline, you should have a look at WP:PROPOSAL, but I wouldn't be surprised if the consensus turned out to be that we don't need to elevate it. Turning it into a policy is bound to fail - not even the Manual of Style itself is a policy.
What I would suggest instead is to discuss the issue at WT:WikiProject Lists, the talk page of the relevant WikiProject. The people over there should know how we commonly format lists, and what has turned out to be consensus in the past. Huon (talk) 13:25, 6 October 2013 (UTC)

Deletion of radio broadcast frequency articles[edit]

Quite simple, the templates that held spaces for the pages existed long before I decided to fill them in. It's already been decided that radio stations are inherently notable and other frequencies have station lists. Japan IS the only country currently that uses F.M. broadcasting on 76-90Mc. instead of 87/8-108Mc. or 65-74Mc. (old OIRT allocation) so 76.5F.M. would only have stations in Japan listed on it. It has as much right to exist as other station lists.Stereorock (talk) 18:38, 11 October 2013 (UTC)

Arrayán (TV series)[edit]

Information icon Hi Op47. Thank you for your work on patrolling new pages and tagging for speedy deletion. I'm just letting you know that I declined your deletion request for Arrayán (TV series), a page that you tagged for speedy deletion, under criterion G5 because the criterion you used or the reason you gave does not cover this kind of page. The creator of this page is not, and was not at the time of the article creation, blocked or banned Please take a moment to look at the suggested tasks for patrollers and review the criteria for speedy deletion. Particularly, the section covering non-criteria. Such pages are best tagged with proposed deletion or proposed deletion for biographies of living persons, or sent to the appropriate deletion discussion. Thryduulf (talk) 16:04, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

Likewise, the article XERC-AM which you tagged for deletion a few days ago was clearly not a candidate for a speedy deletion. It's important to underline that deletion is not a goal in itself, but a process to weed out bad material from Wikipedia. --Soman (talk) 16:24, 1 January 2014 (UTC)
I am not sure I understand why this article "was clearly not a candidate for a speedy deletion". WP:A7 says that an article about an organisation that does not indicate why its subject is important or significant should be speedily deleted. I could not see the claim of importance or significance. If I have missed something then I would like to understand. I am not intrested in deleteing articles per se as you imply, but rather I am intrested in the quality of the encyclopedia and would wish to "weed out bad material from Wikipedia." According to the standards given, that appeared to me to be "bad material" and I therefore chose to ask for it to be weeded out. You would have noted that the originator of the page that Thrduulf was referring to had in fact been banned/blocked at some point for marking pages as reviewed and yet failing to mark the bad ones for speedy deletion. I would therefore, not dare to not mark pages that apparantly come under the criteria for deletion. Op47 (talk) 16:44, 1 January 2014 (UTC)
There isn't a rule that all unreferenced material on Wikipedia should be deleted. If you read the available text at XERC-AM, it states that it is a radio station founded in 1946 in the Mexican capital and still operating. On basis of that info, it is clear that it isn't an unambiguous candidate for deletion. Speedy deletions on basis of notability problem are to be reserved for unambiguous cases. If you are in doubt, PROD and AfD are the apt templates. Candidates for speedy deletion for lack of notability would be applied for clearly frivolous entities. --Soman (talk) 17:57, 1 January 2014 (UTC)
I am glad unreferenced material is not to be removed. If that were the case then there would be very little left. The check list on WP:New Pages Patrol says that if a page meets a criteria for speedy deletion then mark the page for speedy deletion. I did read the material available and I saw 67 stations in Mexico(many red links), all identified only by call sign. I saw no indication as to why this radio station was notable among this 67. A search on a well known search engine gave nothing either. I am sorry, but I was in no doubt that this was a "frivilous" entry. I may be mistaken, but I do not see why it should be clear. Is it that anything in the Mexican capital is notable? Is it that any firm started in 1946 is notable? Is it tha fact that its a radio station? More importantly, the way I did things there was a second opinion. If I just let a bad article through, then there is no way to know. Op47 (talk) 10:22, 2 January 2014 (UTC)

Closure of split discussion at Organized crime in Chicago[edit]

Hello. Thank you for your contributions. I am an active member of WP:CHICAGO. I noticed you recently closed the split discussion at Organized crime in Chicago with the reason "No support for split." However, the discussion did include some support for a split. The discussion was closed with only the view of one editor, the editor who started the discussion, who clearly favors the split. I would respectfully request the closure be backed out and the template restored. Once the discussion is open I would like to add some addition thoughts and try again to foster broader discussion and consensus on this problematic page. Thanks again.

List of foreign Ligue 1 players[edit]

Hi. If I hadn't realised that ligue is a French word, I would not have known immediately that these lists concern French football. Perhaps it might be an idea to include the country, France, early on in the introduction/lead. regards, Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 00:48, 17 January 2014 (UTC)

Appealing results of discussions[edit]

If someone closes a discussion and you don't agree with their concensus, who should you appeal to? (assuming the discussion with the editor doesn't achieve the result you were hoping for) Op47 (talk) 18:27, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

Op47 - Challenging a closing lists where editors can have a close reviewed. If you are referring to this close, the split request was posted 6 July 2013, there was only one reply, and you closed the discussion 10 January 2014 as "No support to split page." There was no consensus to split and closing the discussion had the benefit of removing the split tag from the article.[1] -- Jreferee (talk) 15:35, 7 February 2014 (UTC)

Odd Tag on Heimskr[edit]

Excuse me, Op47, but I don't think it matters if redirects are linked to. These rules only apply to regular articles, I believe. Also, the redirect is already up for deletion, and there is really no need to review it at the present time. Please take this into consideration. Nedgreiner 03:35, 1 March 2014 (UTC)

Transparency International India[edit]

Hello, regarding Transparency International India. It's not eligible for speedy deletion because it was created before Iraag (talk · contribs) was blocked, so to qualify, the edit must have been made while the user was actually banned or blocked. A page created before the ban or block does not qualify. Thanks, JMHamo (talk) 21:09, 8 March 2014 (UTC)
