Just in case anyone wants to talk to me.... Peridon (talk) 20:42, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

The rest of this is archived somewhere. There's a nice little bot comes in and tidies up. (Could do with one at home...) A very kind person has organised an archive box that even has a search bar in it. (No beer, though...)

PLEASE ADD MESSAGES AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE SO THAT I WILL SEE THEM. I LOOK THERE FIRST. Post at the top and you risk being missed altogether. Thanks. Do put a heading inside == == and sign with ~~~~. If you don't get a reply from me (or one of the stalkers...) within a reasonable time, you've probably not read this. If you have read it and ignored it, it's your own fault. If you haven't read it, READ IT NOW. Another reason to post at the bottom is that if you post at the top and someone else posts at the bottom, I'll see their message, but won't suspect there's another. Up to you. Ignore this if you want. Just don't blame me.

Charles Wheaton Abbot[edit]

You must be some kind of Euronazi. I'm from the United States and we don't take crap from ANYONE.

Copyrights have to be REGISTERED. Period. No registration - no copyright. I wrote to piece and published it in a public forum (ie. Geocities) where ANYONE (including myself) can copy it and reuse it. I know Wikipedia doesn't want to run afoul of the law but this is freakn ridiculous. Charles Wheaton Abbot is a very obscure historical figure which only I care about. I see no need to rewrite what I already wrote about it. You obviously wasted whatever time and money you spend on your education as you don't have anything better to do with your pathetic life than to delete an insignificant article on Wikipedia. Please save your energy for something that matters.

When Euronazis like you stop enforcing every stupid rule in the universe for the sake of enforcing it - the world will get better and not before. You are not part of the solution. Only part of the problem. Sure, go ahead and delete me from Wikipedia. I will return under another name. John M. Gould (an alias)

Please sign talk page posts with ~~~~ to put your sig and the datestamp on. OK. Please see Copyright registration which states "It is a common misconception to confuse copyright registration with the granting of copyright. Copyright in most countries today is automatic on "fixation" – it applies as soon as the work is fixed in some tangible medium. This standard is established internationally by the Berne Convention (1886), which most countries have signed onto since. Registration may be required by countries before joining Berne. For instance, the US required registration of copyrighted works before it signed onto the Berne Convention in 1989; at that point, registration was no longer required for works to be copyrighted in the US." I'll ask @Moonriddengirl: to comment, as she's one of our top copyright people. And she's from the USA, so far as I know. BTW it makes a change to be called a Nazi - I'm more often 'accused' of being Jewish or gay. I don't think anyone's put the two together yet... Peridon (talk) 21:57, 8 October 2014 (UTC)

Sophy G again[edit]

Hiya - Thanks for your previous feedback - can you have a look at User:Mrbpkirby/DRAFT and see if you think this is more acceptable. I have rewritten to reflect the issues around copyright as well as bringing the elements of why I think she warrants her place on Wikipedia. B Kirby (talk) 14:15, 9 October 2014 (UTC)

I'll take your word for the rewrite. Sorry, but I can't see that she passes WP:BIO - she's done a lot, but it's not encyclopaedic stuff to me. I'll ask MelanieN to have a look if she can. She's not an admin, but is very good at rescuing things. @MelanieN: Peridon (talk) 17:28, 14 October 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the ping, Peridon. I'll discuss the draft at Mrbpkirby's talk page. --MelanieN (talk) 06:27, 16 October 2014 (UTC)[edit]

why was this taken off and how can I restore this to Wikipedia, it's the one of the very few specific Prince review sites and has significant traffic. thanks@let me know. refer site to see what i mean

Well, according to your article, it had only reviewed three albums, and being an album review site is not of itself notable. There was no sign of any significance shown. Please read WP:WEB, and WP:RS about the reliable independent sources you need to prove the notability. Peridon (talk) 17:23, 14 October 2014 (UTC)

thank you for the update[edit]

But i want to list my company on wikipedia like cnet toi etc. would you suggest me how i can do this — Preceding unsigned comment added by Check.rishabh (talkcontribs) 17:37, 14 October 2014 (UTC)

Not every company gets an article here, just as not every person does. Wikipedia is an encyclopaedia, not a directory. In a directory, Microsoft can have an entry, so can Fred's Computers (established October 2014, employees 2). Fred can 'list' his company, and the directory people are quite happy about it. Here, we don't 'list' things. We have articles ABOUT companies - not BY the companies. You need to read the policies I linked on your talk page. Unless you can pass both (which CNET definitely does), there's no chance of an article. Please read WP:OTHERSTUFFEXISTS as well. When you post on a talk page, please sign at the end of your post with ~~~~ which puts your signature and the datestamp on like this: Peridon (talk) 17:49, 14 October 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for protecting "Baba gang Lnct", but Pannapagal has found a way around it... BABA GANG LNCT. --AmaryllisGardener talk 17:29, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

So have I... Peridon (talk) 18:50, 19 October 2014 (UTC)


You blocked Soarmedia (talk · contribs) based on WP:ORGNAME. I'm not entirely sure that's appropriate. I believe the user may be the media representative for the band Sound of a Revolution (SOAR) about which they have written. A conflict of interest to be sure, but not necessarily a username violation. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 18:14, 22 October 2014 (UTC)

I applied a softerblock, and hadn't noticed the acronym. Looks like a role account if you're right, and still subject to softerblock. Position names are not allowed, but Fred@BloggsCo names are. See what they say when they find out they're blocked. Peridon (talk) 18:20, 22 October 2014 (UTC)
I've commented at their page. Peridon (talk) 18:57, 22 October 2014 (UTC)

Ossama Youssef[edit]

Hi ! I would like to re-post the Ossama Youssef page. Is it possible? Thanx Hyusuf1 (talk) 11:12, 23 October 2014 (UTC)

You are quite free to write about him - I'm not commenting on notability. The previous page was deleted at the request of its author, so I don't think it would be appropriate to restore it as it was. You might ask another admin or two about that. It's not a situation I've come across. I could restore it for the author, as the attribution would be there. But if I restored it against his request, or you posted the same text without attribution to him, it could cause trouble. Peridon (talk) 11:40, 23 October 2014 (UTC)

page restore request[edit]

sorry for the trouble, is it possible to restore the page(Ossama Youssef) you've deleted for me yesterday, as i wasn't sure i wanted it posted yet because i wanted to add more to it but pressed save without adding a table and pic. i really appreciate ur help TY Al-Bernameg (talk) 13:24, 23 October 2014 (UTC)

I'll put it in your user space so you can work on it. (Safer there from patrollers...) It'll be at User:Al-Bernameg/Ossama Youssef. Peridon (talk) 14:17, 23 October 2014 (UTC)

Thank youAl-Bernameg (talk) 14:23, 23 October 2014 (UTC)
