WikiProject Elections and Referendums article tagging[edit]

Hi Philosopher. Sorry to have to post directly on your talk page, but you may have noticed (on the WP:Elections and referendums talk page) that I am trying to get all the election and referendum articles tagged for the project. Unfortunately this is not making any progress, as people are claiming there is no consensus to do this, as no-one has responded on the Project talk page. Could you possibly comment on the proposal at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Elections and Referendums#Bot to tag articles for the WikiProject, as I'm getting rather frustrated by the attitude of the people at WP:BTR. Cheers, Number 57 12:42, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Meetup at the Hull House![edit]

Hey Philosopher. The Jane Addams Hull-House Museum is doing an edit-a-thon later next week. It's kind of on a weird day of the week to accommodate students at UIC, but you're welcome to join us if you're free. Let us know if you can make it, it'd be great to see you at a meetup!

Help with a politics-related bio[edit]

Hi there, Philosopher! I came across your name on the list of members at WikiProject Biography and since you have an interest in political bios, I thought to reach out. On behalf of his firm, Vianovo, I've been working on some updates for political consultant Tucker Eskew. His article is a little messy at the moment and there's some additional / new information that can be added, so I'm looking for help reviewing my suggestions for the article and making the edits if they look good. If you have a moment, would you mind taking a look at the suggestions here? If you're busy right now, I totally understand: any chance you might know of other active editors on biographies? So many of those listed on the WikiProject are no longer active. Thanks in advance! 16912 Rhiannon (Talk · COI) 15:02, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

It looks like you're on the right general track: I haven't worked on any in-depth biographies here on Wikipedia, preferring to start a bunch of basic articles and encourage others to get involved. If you are looking for active editors, I recommend that you check out the talk pages and histories of the articles for similar people - those contributors are more likely to be used to this kind of editing. You don't want someone who will over-politicize the article (always a temptation for editors before an election, sadly) but if you look through the recent edits, you should see a few people who like to fix things up and expand articles. Sorry I couldn't be of more help. – Philosopher Let us reason together. 18:00, 29 October 2014 (UTC)
Thanks Philosopher, all good suggestions! I've been looking around a bit for editors who focus on this type of bio, hopefully I'll find someone soon. If anyone does come to mind, please do drop me a note! Thanks again, 16912 Rhiannon (Talk · COI) 13:14, 31 October 2014 (UTC)

Wales Cwmhiraeth (submissions), 2012 and 2013 WikiCup champion, came in second, having written a large number of biology-related articles. Scotland Casliber (submissions), WikiCup finalist every year since 2010, finished in third.

A full list of our prize-winners follows:

Congratulations to everyone who has been successful in this year's WikiCup, whether you made it to the final rounds or not, and a particular congratulations to the newcomers to the WikiCup who have participated this year.

How do you close Afds?[edit]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Stop_Porn_Culture_(2nd_nomination)

In relation to this, I'm wondering how you close afds with that. Is there some sort of template you have to fill out? Some userscript you can use? Thanks. (I'm aware of the procedures for closing afds and the like, and would like to get into it.) Tutelary (talk) 01:46, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

@User:Tutelary. Yes, there are special templates for them, and a few special rules. Obviously, a non-administrator can only close discussions that don't require special tools to close (e.g. not close as "delete" discussions), and should generally avoid contentious closes. You can find instructions at WP:NACD. The templates required, including step-by-step instructions, are located in the following section. Personally, I use a script to help - you can install it by adding importScript('User:Mr.Z-man/closeAFD.js'); to your Special:MyPage/common.js page. Even if you use the script to help you out, please do read the instructions before you begin. Good luck and thanks for helping! – Philosopher Let us reason together. 01:58, 9 November 2014 (UTC)
(Oh, how does the script work? You should see a "close" option in the drop-down "more" menu that says "Close" when viewing an AfD discussion after you've installed the script. – Philosopher Let us reason together. 01:59, 9 November 2014 (UTC) )
Thanks. I've just closed my first afd with it. The proposer withdrew it and I closed the afd appropriately. Tutelary (talk) 02:06, 9 November 2014 (UTC)
Nicely done, congrats. – Philosopher Let us reason together. 18:51, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

Your closure of multiple discussions on Talk ISIL[edit]

Hi, you recently closed the following disscussions on the ISIL talk page:


16 Removing material from lead: detailed rationale 16.1 Collapse of previous thread 17 Suggestion for last paragraph 18 Standard for Naming ISIL in Sinai, Libya etc 19 Bold change of para order in Lead 19.1 Wording in lead: with many Islamic communities making various judgments of the group as not representing Islam 20 1RR 21 Since, more or less, I've been invited to write here... 22 Beheading incident article name 23 Is Islamic extremist are Khawarij? 24 Timeline keeping 25 Footnote appeal 26 Proposed Move of Ansar Bait al-Maqdis => ISIL in Sinai 27 Article Maps 28 Suggested Trimming of Infobox Info & New Infobox 29 Article Section Reorg - from 14 top level headings to 6 29.1 reintroduction of material twice reverting my edits 30 Names and History Subsections 31 Lead section 32 Infoboxes and Lead 33 Moratorium on a name change 34 RFC: Lists of countries and territories, List of sovereign states, List of active rebel groups and ISIL 35 iraqi insurgency map

You have not been involved in any of these discussions. I do not understand why you have shut them down. Gregkaye 07:28, 26 November 2014 (UTC)

@User:Gregkaye: It looks like User:lowercase sigmabot III goofed a bit when archiving the "Addition of WP:SIZE Template" section, which I did close, here. Because it removed the {{archive bottom}} template but not the {{archive top}} template, the remaining template made the entire page appear to have been closed. – Philosopher Let us reason together. 23:48, 30 November 2014 (UTC)
My hope is that the wikitext has not become self aware and blaming you {{|;)}}. Not knowing the actual facts I thought this was worth a mention. Gregkaye 07:51, 1 December 2014 (UTC)

Iowa politicians[edit]

Hi-I worked on the article about Ralph Klemme which needed work. I also started articles about Ola Babcock Miller, John Redwine, Jean Hall Lloyd-Jones, and Mary Neuhauser. Please feel free to look at the articles and make any improvements. And my thanks to the Iowa General Assembly and their database of past legislators. I wish the Wisconsin Legislature would set up a database of past Wisconsin legislators. Many thanks-RFD (talk) 13:13, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

Thanks - I've watchlisted them and added them to the queue.  :) I am also quite glad that the General Assembly maintains a good database of past legislators - a very handy reference, to be sure! Speaking of which, thanks for adding {{Iowa Women's Hall of Fame}} to some of those articles - I had not been aware of that template's existence. Keep up the good work! – Philosopher Let us reason together. 19:07, 5 December 2014 (UTC)
Many thanks-I started an article about John Judge who served in the Iowa Senate. His wife is Patty Judge who also served in the Iowa Senate. One note-Ola Babcock Miller is one of the most interesting persons I came across since I joined Wikipedia. She was an very interesting lady. Thanks again-RFD (talk) 21:04, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

WikiCup 2015 is just around the corner...[edit]

Hello everyone, and may we wish you all a happy holiday season. As you will probably already know, the 2015 WikiCup begins in the new year; there is still time to sign up. We have a few important announcements concerning the future of the WikiCup.

  • We would like to announce that Josh (J Milburn) and Ed (The ed17), who have been WikiCup judges since 2009 and 2010 respectively, are stepping down. This decision has been made for a number of reasons, but the main one is time. Both Josh and Ed have found that, over the previous year, they have been unable to devote the time necessary to the WikiCup, and it is not likely that they will be able to do this in the near future. Furthermore, new people at the helm can only help to invigorate the WikiCup and keep it dynamic. Josh and Ed will still be around, and will likely be participating in the Cup this following year as competitors, which is where both started out.
  • In a similar vein, we hope you will all join us in welcoming Jason (Sturmvogel 66) and Christine (Figureskatingfan), who are joining Brian (Miyagawa) to form the 2015 WikiCup judging team. Jason is a WikiCup veteran, having won in 2010 and finishing in fifth this year. Christine has participated in two WikiCups, reaching the semi-finals in both, and is responsible for the GA Cup, which she now co-runs.
  • The discussions/polls concerning the next competition's rules will be closed soon, and rules changes will be made clear on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Scoring and talk pages. While it may be impossible to please everyone, the judges will make every effort to ensure that the new rules are both fair and in the best interests of the competition, which is, first and foremost, about improving Wikipedia.

If you have any questions or concerns, the judges can be reached on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, on their talk pages, or by email. We hope you will all join us in trying to make the 2015 WikiCup the most productive and enjoyable yet. You are receiving this message because you are listed on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Newsletter/Send. J Milburn (talk), The ed17 (talk), Miyagawa (talk), Sturmvogel 66 (talk) and Figureskatingfan (talk) 18:54, 7 December 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. I moved one of its parent categories up a level, but otherwise, I have no thoughts on this - I was just the guy who closed/implemented the previous CfD. Actually, ViperSnake151, it looks like you were the one who originally created the category at its previous location of Category:New Year's on Television (User talk:ViperSnake151/archive4#CfD nomination of Category:New Year's on Television).

Your recent misguided deletion[edit]

I created an article for the FIRST fucking time with many references and you deleted the article immediately. If you could see clearly you should have noticed that WP:G4 speaks about recreation of an UNIMPROVED article. I settled the case for the LGA chairmen being elected in the Nigerian parliamentary election, 2011 and also added an additional claim of notability being the General Secretary of the Association of Local Government Chairman, a federal political body. I have recreated many deleted articles in the past and I did not go through deletion review, so stop confusing yourself. Don't ever delete articles with many reliable references again without seeking consensus, especially when an editor is creating the article for the first time. Be warned!!!!! Darreg (talk) 21:44, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

I don't know what you mean by "created an article for the first [] time", but Ayodeji Abass Aleshinloye had just been deleted via a deletion discussion before you re-created it – a discussion which you took part in, no less. The new article had fewer references than the deleted version, and with the exception of the chairman note, was pretty much identical in substance (if shorter) than the deleted version. This, combined with your attempt to continue the closed AfD on the article talk page (which I left undeleted, as it referred to that discussion and so didn't meet WP:G8 to my mind) and the proximity in time to the previous deletion made it appear that you were simply trying to ignore the results of the AfD. Frankly, I'm still not convinced that that's not what you were doing, so will let that deletion stand. – Philosopher Let us reason together. 22:01, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
I just wanted to let you know that my initial post was NEVER intended to be offensive to you. I prolly let my emotions get the better side of me. However, i still insist that it was not a personal attack to you, just a not-so-polite note (a regrettable one at that). I understand that you do not want to be involved in the case so I will end my note here. Darreg (talk) 14:27, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

WikiCup 2015 launch newsletter[edit]

Trophy.png

Round one of the 2015 WikiCup has begun! So far we've had around 80 signups, which close on February 5. If you have not already signed up and want to do so, then you can add your name here. There have been changes to to several of the points scores for various categories, and the addition of Peer Reviews for the first time. These will work in the same manner as Good Article Reviews, and all of the changes are summarised here.

Remember that only the top 64 scoring competitors will make it through to the second round, and one of the new changes this year is that all scores must be claimed within two weeks of an article's promotion or appearance, so don't forget to add them to your submissions pages! If you are concerned that your nomination will not receive the necessary reviews, and you hope to get it promoted before the end of the round, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. However, please remember to continue to offer reviews at GAN, FAC and all the other pages that require them to prevent any backlogs which could otherwise be caused by the Cup. As ever, questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup and the judges are reachable on their talk pages. Good luck!

A request[edit]

Hi Philosopher, I see you're an active editor who is also a lawyer, and I assume from your edits that you're in the United States. Would you be willing to look at this request? It's for FGM, which will be TFA on February 6. I'm trying to make very sure that the one sentence in it about US federal law is correctly written and sourced, namely

In September that year [1996] the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act made it illegal to perform FGM on minors for non-medical reasons,[1] and in 2013 the Transport for Female Genital Mutilation Act prohibited transporting a minor out of the country for the purpose of FGM.[2]

  1. ^ "18 U.S. Code § 116 – Female genital mutilation", Legal Information Institute, Cornell University Law School.

    "Legislation on Female Genital Mutilation in the United States", Center for Reproductive Rights, November 2004, p. 3.

    Abusharaf 2007, p. 22.

    Susan Deller Ross, Women's Human Rights: The International and Comparative Law Casebook, Philadelphia: University of Pennsylvania Press, 2008, pp. 509–511.

  2. ^ "One Hundred Twelfth Congress of the United States of America", 3 January 2012, Sec 1088, p. 339.

I don't know how much work I'm requesting here, but if you could glance at the sources to make sure I haven't relied on something inappropriate or missed something, that would be very helpful. If you're too busy or not inclined, I completely understand. Sarah (SV) (talk) 00:11, 4 February 2015 (UTC)

@SlimVirgin: I changed a reference from a bill to a law (important, as one is proposed and one is in effect). I also added a sentence about asylum claims where the parent is afraid for his/her child. The source isn't the best - it's from 2006 and while it does appear appear in a legal journal, it's a "note", or student-written article, that doesn't appear to have any citations in LEXIS. Still, a quick search showed a lot of appellate decisions on asylum, most of them off-topic, and digging through them would be rather time-consuming, while the note summarized and gathered legal theories from several different courts in one place. – Philosopher Let us reason together. 23:41, 5 February 2015 (UTC)
Oh, I almost forgot to discuss the statement. As far as I can tell, it is appropriately written , and its claims are adequately supported by the sources provided. – Philosopher Let us reason together. 23:43, 5 February 2015 (UTC)
@SlimVirgin: Gah! I was looking just at the content of the information, not at the title - the title "Transport for Female Genital Mutilation Act" is actually not one of the "short titles" that various sub-sections of the law have. "Transport for female genital mutilation." is the name of the section, not the name of the act. I suppose having the section title instead of the completely off-topic act name in the article ("National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013") may be nice, but I couldn't think of a good way to phrase it, so I just put the name of the act there. – Philosopher Let us reason together. 00:03, 6 February 2015 (UTC)
Thank you so much for checking it and making those edits, Philosopher. It looks better now, and I like the point you added about the appellate courts and asylum. I really appreciate your taking the time to do this. Sarah (SV) (talk) 00:32, 6 February 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Snapping: America's Epidemic of Sudden Personality Change[edit]

Hi Philosopher. Just as you were closing Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Snapping: America's Epidemic of Sudden Personality Change, I was about to post the following comment:

  • Keep per the significant coverage in multiple independent reliable sources. See the long list of editorial reviews from Amazon.com:
    1. From Library Journal:

      In this expanded edition of the 1978 original, Conway and Siegelman continue their study of the altering of the American psyche, which has led to the rise of religious cults, super Christian sects, private citizen militias, and other phenomena that dominate today's headlines. Probably more timely now than when first published, this is an important title for academic and public libraries.

      Copyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc.

    2. From Scientific American:

      Explores the way cults and other factors are causing people to give themselves over to those like David Koresh of Waco infamy, or becoming walking time bombs like Timothy McVeigh, the alleged perpetrator of the Oklahoma bombing...a powerful look at a social phenomenon that is making headlines.

    3. From The New Yorker:

      Their book is judicious, sensible, well-researched and very frightening.

    4. "Snapping" is an exciting and responsible and original piece of research which has taught this old poop amazing new ways to think about the human mind. -- Kurt Vonnegut
    5. Classic returns....More timely now than when first published....An important title for academic and public libraries. -- Library Journal
    6. Conway and Siegelman are onto something important..."Snapping" is a fascinating book with frightening implications. -- Edward T. Hall, author of "The Silent Language"
    7. Conway and Siegelman deliver a powerful book and an amazing yet responsible look at the inner workings of the human mind. -- The Examined Life: A Psychology Newsletter
    8. In a prophetic vein again...."Snapping" is not only fascinating and frightening reading, it is also extremely well-written....The escalating pattern of cult fanaticism and religious-political terror that the authors call a "death spiral" seems to be widening. If we do nothing to understand and ultimately reverse that pattern, it will pull more and more innocent people into its vortex. -- Cleveland Jewish News
    9. It is a book of investigative reporting at its best. -- New York Post
    10. What Woodward and Bernstein were to Watergate, Conway and Siegelman may well be to the cults. -- United Press International
    11. What are the social links between cultists, born-again converts, and political extremists? There are closer connections than one might think, and this labels the alteration of personality which has become an American norm, examining how mind-altering practices change the brain's information processing system. Intriguing examples of cult extremes accompany the authors' contentions. -- Midwest Book Review

Would you reopen the AfD? Cunard (talk) 00:47, 7 February 2015 (UTC)

Euronetpol[edit]

Hi Philosopher, could I trouble you to look up when the (since deleted) Euronetpol article was originally created? I have a copy of the article for Wikipedia:List_of_hoaxes_on_Wikipedia but I neglected to catch when the page was created. Thanks, Noah 01:20, 9 February 2015 (UTC)

  • @Noah Salzman: It was originally created at 18:44 on March 26, 2014 – Philosopher Let us reason together. 20:37, 10 February 2015 (UTC)
Gracias, señor. Noah 21:01, 10 February 2015 (UTC)
