Thank you for trying to keep Wikipedia free of vandalism. However, one or more edits you labeled as vandalism are not considered vandalism under Wikipedia policy. Wikipedia has a stricter definition of the word "vandalism" than common usage, and mislabeling edits as vandalism can discourage newer editors. Please read Wikipedia:NOTVAND for more information on what is and is not considered vandalism. Thank you. (talk→ BWilkins ←track) 20:37, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

Flyleaf

Hello, Qxukhgiels56. When you moved Flyleaf to a new title and then changed the old title into a disambiguation page, you may have overlooked WP:FIXDABLINKS, which says:

A code of honor for creating disambiguation pages is to fix all resulting mis-directed links.
Before moving an article to a qualified name (in order to create a disambiguation page at the base name, to move an existing disambiguation page to that name, or to redirect that name to a disambiguation page), click on What links here to find all of the incoming links. Repair all of those incoming links to use the new article name.

It would be a great help if you would check the other Wikipedia articles that contain links to "Flyleaf" and fix them to take readers to the correct article. Thanks. R'n'B (call me Russ) 23:27, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion criteria

You tagged LMFAO sexy and i know it for G6 (housekeeping) speedy deletion as "useless, implausible rd". Just wanted to let you know that this isn't a valid example of housekeeping: G6 is for pagemoves, history merges, and other things where the software requires deletion, plus things such as cleaning up valid mistakes. However, recently-created implausible redirects can be deleted under speedy criterion R3, so I've deleted the page that way; I'd encourage you to use {{db-r3}} in the future. Nyttend (talk) 15:51, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

OK...that obviously wasn't a typo of misnomer.Qxukhgiels56 (talk) 15:52, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Justin Beeber

Hello Qxukhgiels56. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Justin Beeber, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: Redirects are cheap, and I can't say this is entirely implausible. Thank you. Martijn Hoekstra (talk) 16:55, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Justin Beiber:Never say never

Hello Qxukhgiels56. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Justin Beiber:Never say never, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: Not a recently created redirect - consider WP:RfD. Thank you. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 18:47, 12 August 2012 (UTC)

Thanks a lot, Nyttend... well... OK, I chose to use R3 (even though G8 might not apply, either).Qxukhgiels56 (talk) 18:49, 12 August 2012 (UTC)

License tagging for File:Forking&countryep.jpg

Thanks for uploading File:Forking&countryep.jpg. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information.

To add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia. For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 21:05, 12 August 2012 (UTC)

File copyright problem with File:Forking&countryep.jpg

Thank you for uploading File:Forking&countryep.jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright and licensing status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can verify that it has an acceptable license status and a verifiable source. Please add this information by editing the image description page. You may refer to the image use policy to learn what files you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. The page on copyright tags may help you to find the correct tag to use for your file. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please also check any other files you may have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. Stefan2 (talk) 21:06, 12 August 2012 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:Ashesremainjuly2012.jpeg

Thanks for uploading File:Ashesremainjuly2012.jpeg, which you've sourced to http://vimeo.com/45800986. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file agreed to license it under the given license.

If you created this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. You may wish to read the Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 00:30, 13 August 2012 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:I'mnotalright.ogg)

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:I'mnotalright.ogg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Hazard-Bot (talk) 04:39, 20 August 2012 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:Raindown.ogg

September 2012

Welcome to Wikipedia. It might not have been your intention, but in this recent edit you removed a speedy deletion tag from File:Skilletsaviour.ogg, a page you have created yourself. If you believe the page should not be deleted, you may contest the deletion by clicking on the button that says: Click here to contest this speedy deletion and appears inside the speedy deletion notice. This will allow you to make your case on the page's talk page. Administrators will consider your reasoning before deciding what to do with the page. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File%3aSkilletsaviour.ogg?diff=510317513 RoboCop 19:21, 1 September 2012 (UTC)

The nomination was false, per WP:NFCC. It might be a good time to warn the editor about this, as this has happened repeatedly.-Qxukhgiels56 (talk) 19:23, 1 September 2012 (UTC)
My bad. I was going through Huggle and from afar it looked like an obvious template removal to me. It does look like the user needs to review the speedy criteria. Thank you for the message, and please let me know if I can be of any further service. Cheers! RoboCop 19:28, 1 September 2012 (UTC)

Good grief

Look, don't spam my page with 13 notices. Give it to me in one, please, if you want to do that. Second, fair use rationale is on each page, so there is no issue. I will be removing each notice due to this, as your tags are incorrect. Toa Nidhiki05 00:24, 15 September 2012 (UTC)

Yes, I do now realise that that was not the best tag, F7 would have been better. But do not remove the tags.Qxukhgiels56 (talk) 00:28, 15 September 2012 (UTC)
I am going to revert those as well as you have not listed any sort of substantial concern. Most of these are on articles have passed GA and thus they have been determined as appropriate for use on articles. Please stop this, it is disruptive and is wasting my time. Toa Nidhiki05 00:34, 15 September 2012 (UTC)
If you feel this is a major issue, I'd be more than happy to request a third opinion. This clearly won't go anywhere, so getting third-party advice could resolve any concerns. :) Toa Nidhiki05 00:58, 15 September 2012 (UTC)
Go ahead, please do so. The first thing they probably will warn you of is CSD template removal of pages you have created. Also, I have again detected your evasive behaviour in which you appear to be attempting to confuse me (and maybe the pot is calling the kettle black, but all I can tell you is if it is intentional, it is not working).-Qxukhgiels56 (talk) 01:04, 15 September 2012 (UTC)
That is contingent on there being a 'Click here to contest speedy deletion' button, which there was not on the tags you used. They were also improper on the first and vague on the second, and as such you gave no way to remove them. Toa Nidhiki05 01:16, 15 September 2012 (UTC)
Looks like the dog has got the cat's tail- You could have removed them by reverting me, removing the text, etc. And are you going to consult a third party?Qxukhgiels56 (talk) 01:27, 15 September 2012 (UTC)

Searchtool-80%.png Response to third opinion request:
Indeed the author (uploader) is not allowed to remove speedy deletion tags.

Dara Maclean

Was wondering what your reasons were for adding the maintenance templates to this article? (See edit history). Thanks, Shearonink (talk) 02:24, 15 September 2012 (UTC)

I will go further than that. I have reverted your addition of those templates. There is not ratio ale whatsoever for them. That the templates you added were suggested for consideration on the talk page is one thing, adding them in this manner before the building of consensus on the talk page is another. If you have a quarrel with the facts of the article, flag the relevant areas as requiring citations. Without this, which was part of the process suggested on the talk page, your edits look very pointy]. It;s time to leave this area of dispute. Wikipedia is large enough for you to leave this to others, surely? Fiddle Faddle (talk) 07:10, 15 September 2012 (UTC)

Basically, as others have noted above, you appear to be incorrectly tagging articles. - Sitush (talk) 07:02, 20 September 2012 (UTC)
Similarly, this tag at Vaishya was unnecessary. I think perhaps that you should refrain from tagging articles for now. There is plenty of other stuff that you could do. - Sitush (talk) 08:34, 20 September 2012 (UTC)
Besses o' th' Barn and Vaishya- don't even remember placing those tags, but I can;t deny it now. You are right about the fact that I am having tag trouble...you may have also noticed that I have reverted myself on several tagging occasions. And those above, one of those was a seventeen-year-old who was apparently unfamiliar with COIs (who, BTW, was a third party, not the editor with the COI), but we discussed on the talk page to use a different template, and if he reverts that, he's in for trouble. But, anyways, I'm sort of stepping away from tagging for now.-Qxukhgiels (talk) 21:39, 5 October 2012 (UTC)

Hi. I have deleted the two sub-pages you tagged with db-u1. That left error messages showing at the top of this page, so I have taken the liberty of altering the template call there from qxukhgiels56/right to qxukhgiels/right, so that the "Keep calm and carry on" message displays again. I hope that is what you intended, if not change it as you like. Regards, JohnCD (talk) 22:15, 5 October 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Besses o' th' barn burial ground.jpg

A tag has been placed on File:Besses o' th' barn burial ground.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F9 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted images or text borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Eeekster (talk) 00:27, 6 October 2012 (UTC)

Besses stuff

Please do not be discouraged. I am actually sat here in Besses right now and I appreciate that someone else is taking an interest in the subject area, even if they're still learning and probably getting a bit frustrated with all the gubbins that go on here regarding policies etc. Keep being bold and you'll pick it up. And feel free to ask any questions on my talk page. - Sitush (talk) 00:50, 6 October 2012 (UTC)

Actually, not a huge interest exclusivelly with Besses, but with the effort of develloping stubs such as these (there's a lot of them lying around here and there; developing just one is an improvement). But thanks.-Qxukhgiels (talk) 00:56, 6 October 2012 (UTC)
"developing just one is an improvement"... you've got it! That's what this is all about. I spend most of my time on India-related stuff, despite never having been there, not being Indian/Pakistani etc. The rules etc are the same. Keep plugging on. - Sitush (talk) 01:00, 6 October 2012 (UTC)

Besses - image and redirect

I deleted File:Besses o' th' barn burial ground.jpg because it was a copyright violation. If you want some images that you can use here, go to Geograph. Note: Geograph images must be uploaded to the Commons, not here and check first, we aleady have 1.7 million images from Geograph.

Besses o'th' Barn Metrolink station (the redirect with no space in o'th') should never be deleted - it is always likely to be receiving hits. If you actually want to do something useful, go through the articles which point to it and change the links in each article. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 19:07, 6 October 2012 (UTC)

Have the group made an official announcement as to whether or not Noah Gersh or Kane Ritchotte are official members of the band?

Information.svg Hi Qxukhgiels. 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 Chunibyo, a page that you tagged for speedy deletion, because the criterion you used or the reason you gave does not cover this kind of page. 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, proposed deletion for biographies of living persons, or sent to the appropriate deletion discussion. Not gibberish or nonsense. This is clear understandable English. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 15:45, 31 October 2012 (UTC)

I have also declined your speedy deletion request for vandalism because the term does exist and is the bases of an ongoing anime series, and is therefore not a hoax or other form of vandalism.

We noticed though that when you edited Oceans From The Rain, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Digital download (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). 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.

editing of entry "Mary Lou Jepsen"

Qxukhgiels,

what is your reasoning around deleting the references and the slight updates?

Was simply trying to do what was requested at the top of "Mary Lou Jepsen" and added lots of references. Also, I updated her work status - she gave a big lecture last month at TED and told the whole world she was at Google[x] - it's also referenced. She is an important woman in technology and I'm a fan and wanted to get her wikipedia page to be more accurate. Can you help me with ways to do that without upsetting the apple cart?

Oops- I didn't realise that you had made that many edits in a row. I only saw the first edit, which appeared to be the removal of content and addition of unsourced material, yet I realise that this change coincides with previous changes you made. You should consider providing an edit summary for future changes. -Qxukhgiels (talk) 20:53, 17 March 2013 (UTC)

ADF Solutions Article

Hello Qxukhgiels, and thank you for your help so far on the ADF Solutions article. I am obviously a newbie at doing this and need help. I am open to any and all necessary changes to make the page encyclopedic and acceptable, but I am having a hard time achieving this. This is my fourth attempt and I really would appreciate your clear input as to what needs to be removed and/or rewritten. Thank you so much in advance.

Kevin Carter

Re:August 2013

Hello, I have amended the Kevin Carter bio line because it was confusing. It read that he was born between the Chinese and Korean border, which A) contradicts the bio line in the blue box and B) doesn't say where about (was he born in China? Or in Korea?) and goes on describing the environment where he grew up without specifying where it is. As HE WAS born in Johannesburg (well documented fact in books and so on) I felt it should be changed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 212.188.160.124 (talk) 18:10, 15 July 2013 (UTC)

Xerxes the Great

Hi, thanks for your message. Regarding Xerxes, the title 'the Great' recognises Xerxes' immense contribution to world history, therefore, it is necessary to emphasise this in the infobox. This is universally recognised, otherwise we may be subjecting ourselves to historical bias. Best regards — Preceding unsigned comment added by 129.31.247.12 (talk) 15:34, 13 August 2013 (UTC)

Per MOS:INFOBOX, his actual name, Xerxes I, belongs in the infobox. As his title "Xerxes the Great" is already included in the lead section, it is unnecessary for this to be included in the infobox.Qxukhgiels (talk) 15:38, 13 August 2013 (UTC)
Actually, there is a parametre in Template:Infobox monarch for other titles that is not currently being used. You might want to add this.Qxukhgiels (talk) 15:40, 13 August 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Kudaezai

Hello Qxukhgiels. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Kudaezai, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: There is sufficient context to identify the subject of the article. Thank you. kelapstick(bainuu) 20:37, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

Sorry, I guess there was obvious context, but it was unreferenced.Qxukhgiels (talk) 20:39, 11 March 2014 (UTC)
(edit conflict) No worries, I was just going to drop this note after the automatic message from CSD helper, A1 is one of the more difficult CSD tags for editors to get a handle on, basically it means that by reading the article, you have no idea what it is about. In this case it is clearly about a group of people in Pakistan. The article may be eligible for deletion via another method (PROD or AfD), but CSD criteria are quite explicit, however Unreferenced is not one of them. Let me know if you have any questions. Cheers, --kelapstick(bainuu) 20:47, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

Welcome to Wikipedia from the Anatomy Wikiproject!

Welcome to Wikipedia from Wikiproject Anatomy! We're a group of editors who strive to improve the quality of anatomy articles here on Wikipedia. One of our members has noticed that you are involved in editing anatomy articles; it's great to have a new interested editor on board. In your wiki-voyages, a few things that may be relevant to editing wikipedia articles are:

Sobo 1909 589.png
  • Thanks for coming aboard! We always appreciate a new editor. Feel free to leave us a message at any time on the WikiProkect Anatomy talk page. If you are interested in joining the project yourself, there is a participant list where you can sign up. Please leave a message on the talk page if you have any problems, suggestions, would like review of an article, need suggestions for articles to edit, or would like some collaboration when editing!
  • You will make a big difference to the quality of information by adding reliable sources. Sourcing anatomy articles is essential and makes a big difference to the quality of articles. And, while you're at it, why not use a book to source information, which can source multiple articles at once!
  • We try and use a standard way of arranging the content in each article. That layout is here. These headings let us have a standard way of presenting the information in anatomical articles, indicate what information may have been forgotten, and save angst when trying to decide how to organise an article. That said, this might not suit every article. If in doubt, be bold!
  • Lastly, why not try and strive to create a good article! Anatomical articles are often small in scope, have available sources, and only a limited amount of research available that is readily presentable!

Feel free to contact us on the WikiProkect Anatomy talk page if you have any problems, or wish to join us. I wish you all the best on your wiki-voyages! --LT910001 (talk) 01:49, 12 March 2014 (UTC

Hi there,

please I want all my content out of this site. it is freaky. every time I write an article it gets the red deletion thing. now the company that hired me to write something about the company on wiki wont be happy to see the red thing on their wiki page.

You still must support your claims with a verifiable source, even if you are being hired. You might want to explain to your boss or whoever's hiring you that Wikipedia is not where they need to be advertising.

WikiProject Anatomy quarterly newsletter

WP:Anatomy quarterly update (#2)

Previous -- Next
Released: First quarter, 2014
Updated cleanup listing and recent changes list in third quarter, 2014
Editor: LT910001

Hello WP:ANATOMY participant! This is the second quarterly update of goings-on in WP:ANATOMY, documenting the current state of WP:ANATOMY, current projects and items of interest, and any relevant news. I'd greatly value feedback on this, and if you think I've missed something, or don't wish to receive this again, please leave a note on my talkpage or remove your name from the mailing list

What's new
What's going on
How can I contribute?
  • Reword anatomical jargon: jargon is widespread and not helpful to lay readers.
  • Contribute on our talk page
  • Continue to add sources, content, and improve anatomical articles!
  • Replace images with better images from Wikipedia commons, or if there are too many images, remove some low-quality ones
Quarterly focus - Where to edit?
One of our two new featured images! (Also featured on the Signpost)

On any given week we have at least 4-10 editors making significant contributions to our articles, with probably more than double this making minor edits. As an editor, I am often wondering: with so many articles, where to start? There is so much to be done (as always, on Wikipedia!), and I aim here to provide a comprehensive list of venues within our project. If I've missed any, please let us know on the WikiProject Anatomy talk page.

An editor might edit:

  • By importance. A user can use our assessment table to view articles by their importance and class. The vital articles project provides a list of designated 'Vital articles' for Wikipedia.
  • By popularity. One way to edit is to edit the most popular pages -- the majority of these need help, and editing is sure to bring benefit to many users.
  • By need. There is always cleanup that needs to be done, whether commenting on mergers, adding infoboxes or adding images. A cleanup list of all tagged articles is now available here: [1]
  • By interest. A series of inter-project categories has been developed to help facilitate inter-Wiki and inter-professional collaboration. These categories sort our articles into organs, system, gross anatomy, neuroanatomy, and several other categories. This should offer a buffet of articles for any interested editors! See here for more details.
  • By topic. Wikipedia's anatomical categories may provide impetus, as may editing a suite of related-articles, using a parent article such as ear for direction. A collection of series are slowly being rolled-out, including one for epithelia and for articles about the gastrointestinal wall, which also act as groups of topics. Templates, as documented on our main page, provide a similar categorisation.
  • By demand. Discussions relating to Anatomy are frequent occurrences on the talk pages for WPMED and WP:ANATOMY. Such topics almost always cry out for more editing.
  • By recent changes. One way to choose a destination for editing is to check the recent changes, revert vandalism, integrate/source edits, or generally collaborate in improving articles that are receiving contributions from other editors. This can be found in the here.
  • By chance. A user is always welcome to improve articles that they randomly 'bump into' by Wiki-surfing or by having bumped for other reasons into a particular article or topic that needs improvement

Proposed deletion of Secrets and Regrets

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Secrets and Regrets has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Does not meet WP:NSONGS

While all constructive 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.

Orphaned non-free image File:Forking&countryep.jpg

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Forking&countryep.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 16:18, 22 June 2014 (UTC)

"respect{ing}" language usage in other countries

The article was not about the UK, and other instances in that section used the word "while" and not "whilst"; I simply made the poorly worded section more consistent. But thanks for trying to correct me. --19:29, 16 July 2014 (UTC)65.66.161.253 (talk)

True, but New World monkeys are in South America, where many countries use a dialect of English similar to that of the UK. Just because the rest of the article uses a certain variety of English doesn't mean it's right; WP:OTHER is not an argument to ever use.Qxukhgiels (talk) 19:49, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

Satellite Television

Hello, I removed and reverted it because it seems that you have scraped content from other websites, some of which have themselves taken content from other sources. Scraping content from websites and pasting it in an article is not what Wikipedia is about. Some of the references are just blogs and low quality content farms with no expertise in the field and some are just even using the same text in order to drop their links on Wikipedia. They are not considered reliable sources (WP:RS). Some of the newspaper refs are ok but they are out of place as they are typically covering the rise of scrambling on what were initially Free To Air/unencrypted services. Merely scraping content and changing a few words while leaving the much of the content the same is still plagiarism at worst and just content spinning and link dropping at best. The newspaper references are ok but they largely apply to the implementation of Videocipher II which is also covered as an article as a method of ensuring payment for programming (that's Conditional Access Systems and it has multiple articles on Wikipedia). Much of the history you cut and pasted is garbled and misunderstood. It is not surprising as much of this happened over thirty years ago and well before the development of the web. DBS (direct broadcast satellite TV), for example, developed from the ideas in WARC-77 (1977) but the technology developed at a far faster pace. There was little or no differentiation between C-Band (BUDs) and the development of DBS in Europe on Ku band while the US/CA continued on C-Band until the launch and general popularity of services like DirecTV. There are just so many problems with scraping what is often low quality content (some of it is barely coherent English) from unreliable source websites that reverting to the previous version is necessary. It looks like I'll have to write something about the development of Satellite TV. Jmccormac (talk) 07:57, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

There was a substantial section on the history of STV in the US but it was moved along with a block of content to its own Wikipedia article Satellite television in the United States. The problem is that much of Wikipedia's content has been copied and spun by content farms and spam blogs that it is now making its way back to Wikipedia. Do a Google search for this sentence "In 1976 Taylor Howard built an amateur system, which consisted of a converted military surplus radar dish and a satellite receiver designed and built by Howard, for home satellite reception.". It is from the old Satellite TV article and now in the Satelite TV in the US article. You can see how it has propagated. The other issue is that some of the sites you used as references are not references. They are content farms and low quality cut and paste jobs that also take content from other sites on the web and from printed books. If you read closely, you can see where the style abruptly changes from bland advertising English (at best) to coherent journalistic English (typically a professional level of writing and often in the US style). About thirty years ago, Taylor Howard wrote a manual, amongst other things, on how to build your own satellite TV receiver system. Luckily this has not made it into the hands of those people who run the content farms. However there are many others (Bob Cooper, Steve Birkill, Shaun Kenny, Clyde Washburn, Paul Shuch) that were equally important in the history of satellite TV. Jmccormac (talk) 08:59, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
And I have reverted you again. If you look at the sources, you will see that the text on the page is indeed not copy-pasted from the sources. For instance, ref 4 references a sentence in the article that says "The world's first commercial communications satellite, called Intelsat I (nicknamed "Early Bird"), was launched into synchronous orbit on April 6, 1965," while the source says "American communications satellite. One launch, 1965.04.06. Intelsat 1, also called Early Bird, was the world's first commercial communications satellite." Another example would be the sentence that says "In October 1984, the U.S. Congress passed the Cable Communications Policy Act of 1984, which gave those using TVRO systems the right to receive signals for free unless they were scrambled, and required those who did scramble to make their signals available for a reasonable fee." The source is a news, not encyclopedic article. Most of the sources are reliable news or encyclopedia articles, which meet WP:NEWSORG and WP:WPNOTRS. You also claimed that the madehow source is linkspam. I was, again, using a tertiary source, which WP:WPNOTRS says are OK for giving overviews or summaries, but should not be used for detailed descriptions, and if you notice, I did not include many sources like this. I added summaries of things covered in other articles, such as about Captain Midnight and Videocipher, not detailed descriptions; those are found in the separate articles. I am currently working to add more of a worldwide viewpoint to the history section, but do not remove the content; please continue to discuss on the talk page; irrelevant reasons will be disregarded. If you continue to do so, you may be in danger of breaking WP:3RR.Qxukhgiels (talk) 17:21, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

File copyright problem with File:Duanedpearsall.jpg

Thank you for uploading File:Duanedpearsall.jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright and licensing status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can verify that it has an acceptable license status and a verifiable source. Please add this information by editing the image description page. You may refer to the image use policy to learn what files you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. The page on copyright tags may help you to find the correct tag to use for your file. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please also check any other files you may have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. January (talk) 21:20, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:Duanedpearsall.jpg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Duanedpearsall.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page.

Wikipedia:WikiProject Aircraft

Thanks for signing up for this project. It is a very busy and active project with lots going on and we can always use more help and especially a fresh set of eyes. If you haven't done so already you might want to add Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Aircraft to your watch list as this is where much of the background discussion occurs. You may also want to watch Wikipedia:New articles (Aircraft) as this is where newly created articles get listed for peer review. Having a look over these new articles is a great way to get a feel for how things are done on the project and also most new articles need reviewing anyway. If you have any questions you can leave me a note or post at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Aircraft, either way you will get a quick response. - Ahunt (talk) 22:47, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

Vanja Bulić

are you a troll? why are you accusing me that i "blank articles" and nominate a page that was edited from this ip some time ago, while a brief check of previous nomination shows that it is completely bogus? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 213.198.221.171 (talk) 22:11, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

Sorry, I should have taken a closer look at the revision. The window showed that you had removed content from the article, but per the revision, you didn't. This may have been the cause of a bug, and if it keeps happening, I'll submit a report. But when adding these changes, please remember to explain in the edit summary, and on the talk page if necessary. Also, at the previous AfD nomination of Vanja Bulić, the nominator did not give a good reason for it's deletion; he should have used WP policies and guidelines to support his claims. This is why that nomination was a bad faith nomination; WP:NOTAGAIN is not a valid argument to use in deletion discussions.Qxukhgiels (talk) 20:03, 7 August 2014 (UTC)

See my comment at WP:ANI. If you have a problem, I suggest you bring it up at WT:PA or WT:CIVIL.-Qxukhgiels (talk) 20:18, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
Once again, if you feel that the other party is wrong in using swearwords or arguments that you do not find convincing, you're welcome to point that out. Repetitively removing other people's comments is frowned upon, as it is a violation of talk page decorum and the edit warring policy. Yes, one can remove serious personal attacks, but in this case "just fucking do something" and "here's your homework", is borderline. If we weren't talking about a discussion where the other editor's arguments were supported by several other people, you could easily say that their rude comment had no purpose other than to be disruptive. However, it appears that the consensus is that your initial action wasn't right; a negative reaction to it should therefore have been expected. Please be more careful in the future. --Joy [shallot] (talk) 11:42, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of Walmart

Hi there, I'm pleased to inform you that I've begun reviewing the article Walmart you nominated for GA-status according to the criteria. Time2wait.svg This process may take up to 7 days. Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments you might have during this period. Message delivered by Legobot, on behalf of TonyTheTiger -- TonyTheTiger (talk) 04:01, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

Your SPI case against me

I do apologise for labelling your edits as vandalism, however, as was pointed out to you in a subsequent edit, one does not need to cite already obvious information. There was no need for you to blanket the article with cn tags regarding songs which appear on various albums; that information is quite obvious by just looking at the albums.

I'm sorry you got your knickers in such a twist over such an obvious mistake on your part. Your SPI case is clearly a personal attack, and I'm giving you 24 hours to withraw it before this goes to WP:AN/I. Cheers. Radiopathy •talk• 02:38, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

  • Radiopathy, you can escalate to ANI if you like but I don't see the need for it. That SPI is going to be closed quickly, no doubt, and Qxuk here will have egg on their face. Qxuk, you built a ridiculously weak case, and if this is how you try to solve conflicts (by charging your opponents with having broken the rules) your career here will be shortlived. I strongly suggest you ask for it to be closed, and that you figure out why you got reverted by two editors--and that you consider seeking more, well, acceptable ways of conflict resolution. I don't think you would enjoy being accused of socking, and if you think Radiopathy shouldn't have called your edits vandalism (it's not unreasonable of you to think so), you can tell them, with words, rather than with a court summons. Drmies (talk) 14:05, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
Not to mention the fact that Qxuk has just tarnished my reputation for no other reason than I agreed that marking non-vandalism edits as vandalism is wrong. It's editors like them that make this place hostile and unwelcoming. Rationalobserver (talk) 17:47, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
  • I have no doubt that an apology will be forthcoming, and a promise that next time they will think twice before starting an SPI. Drmies (talk) 02:21, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

Question

Hi. Can you explain this edit? I read the source twice, and it doesn't seem to say that any Ice Bucket Challenge videos have included the participant saying that they will be making a donation along with performing the challenge. —Granger (talk · contribs) 21:42, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

It does not say this directly, but it makes a mention of people multiple times saying they will be doing both, but not actually donating. I'm currently looking for a better source.Qxukhgiels (talk) 21:44, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, I can't find it. Where in the Huffington Post article does it mention any individual participants saying that they would be doing both? Could you give me a quotation? —Granger (talk · contribs) 21:52, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
These paragraphs strongly suggest it:
"But if so many people are uploading videos pouring water over their heads, are they still donating? And wouldn't it be better to just donate, and not waste (especially in California!) precious water? As an everyday citizen, this would be my first reaction: stop wasting water and just donate! But as an NGO founder, anything and everything that motivates people to raise conversations about my cause/mission is absolutely welcome or encouraged."
"Recent data shows that more buckets of water have been poured and shared than donations made, but the challenge has still managed to raised over22 million -- and counting."
There are some other examples in the article that imply this, too. I am still searching for a better source (and working to improved other parts of the article), and have added a {{better source needed}} template for the time being.Qxukhgiels (talk) 22:05, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
I disagree. The first paragraph you quoted suggests that the author thinks people should donate in addition to making the video, not that they actually are. The second paragraph indicates that there are people donating—but it doesn't say that those people also made videos. I don't see anything at all that supports the statement that "Individual videos have included the participant saying that they will be making a donation along with performing the challenge." —Granger (talk · contribs) 22:11, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
I've just found a different source that supports a statement similar to the one in the article. I'll add it in a moment—hopefully that will resolve the issue. —Granger (talk · contribs) 22:16, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

WP:Anatomy quarterly update (#3)

Previous
Released: 1 November, 2014
Editor: Tom (LT)

Hello WP:Anatomy participant! This is the third quarterly update, documenting what's going on in WikiProkect Anatomy, news, current projects and other items of interest. I'd greatly value feedback on this, and if you think I've missed something, or don't wish to receive this again, please leave a note on my talkpage or remove your name from the mailing list

What's new
What's going on
  • We fly past 10,000 articles (now already up to 10,150). Why is this important? Articles under our scope are automatically included in popular pages, the cleanup list, and will be included as the recent changes list is updated.
  • A discussion about the formatting of infoboxes.
  • A lot of editing on the heart article -- can it make it to GA?
  • The medical newsletter, WP:PULSE finds its feet, and Anatomy and Physiology are featured as a subsection!
  • A new WP:WikiProject Animal anatomy (WP:ANAN) is created to focus on animal anatomy.
How can I contribute?
  • Welcome new editors! We have a constant stream of new editors who are often eager to work on certain articles.
  • We are always looking to collaborate! If you're looking for editors to collaborate with, let us know on our talk page!
  • Continue to add high-class reliable sources
  • Browse images on WikiCommons to improve the quality of images we use on many articles.
Quarterly focus - Anatomical terminology

Anatomical terminology is an essential component to all our articles. It is necessary to describe structures accurately and without ambiguity. It can also be extremely confusing and, let's face it, it's likely you too were confused too before you knew what was going on ("It's all Greek to me!" you may have said, fairly accurately).

In the opinion of this editor, it's very important that we try hard to describe anatomy in a way that is both technically accurate and accessible. The majority of our readers are lay readers and will not be fluent in terminology. Anatomy is a thoroughly interesting discipline, but it shouldn't be 'locked away' only to those who are fluent in the lingo – exploring anatomy should not be limited by education, technical-level English fluency, or unfamiliarity with its jargon. Anatomical terminology is one barrier to anatomical literacy.

Here are four ways that we can help improve the readability of our anatomical articles.

  1. Substitute. Use words readers are familiar with -- there is no need to use anatomical terminology unless necessary!
    Innervated by
    The nerve that supplies X is...
  2. Explain. When using terminology, remember readers will likely not understand what you mean, so consider adding an explanation and providing context. Use wikilinks for terms that a reader may not know.
    "The triceps extends the arm" may not be readily understood. A small addition may help the reader:
    "The triceps extends the arm, straightening it". Consider:
  3. Separate. Do not use long, complicated sentences. Don't write discursive, long comparisons unless needed. Start with simple information first, then get progressively more complex. Separate information by paragraph and subsection. Bite-sized information is much more easier to digest for readers who don't have a solid anatomical foundation
  4. Eliminate. Not all information is necessary on every article. Hatnotes are a simple and effective way to direct readers to another article. Don't provide long lists of synonyms of names for structures that an article isn't about. If a sentence has been paraphrased to the hilt, consider that several editors are indicating it may need to be simplified.
    "The other branches of the trigeminal nerve are the opthalmic nerve (nervus opthalmicus) and mandibular nerve (nervus mandibularis)"
    "The other branches of the trigeminal nerve are the opthalmic nerve and mandibular nerve" is much more easily digestible

Mussolini's death

I'm quite surprised that you've nominated the above for speedy deletion less than half an hour after I created it. I've posted my response contesting it on the talk page. I really don't see how the myriad of disputes over who gave the order and who carried ot the shooting plus coverage of the post-war histriography, with its polical controversy, can be covered in the Benito Mussolini article without it becoming WP:UNDUE. Anyway, I've put the article up with the basic information on it and will be expanding over the next few days. DeCausa (talk) 09:30, 5 November 2014 (UTC)

Not to worry. An admin has de-tagged it. DeCausa (talk) 11:08, 5 November 2014 (UTC)

Mussolini's death

Hi. I've declined your speedy request as there is considerably more in this article about the topic than there is in the main article. If you disagree, I would suggest AfD, as a prod would undoubtedly be declined by the author. Peridon (talk) 11:09, 5 November 2014 (UTC)

G6

While I agree that that siren is probably non-notable, you can't use G6 for products. G6 is house keeping stuff, things like tidying up leftover odds and sods. There is no CSD for lack of significance other than A7, and products don't come in there. It's prod or AfD, I'm afraid. Peridon (talk) 13:04, 5 November 2014 (UTC)

Your move of Mussolini's death

I've moved it back to the original title, which I believe complies with WP:CONCISE. I'm still in the process of developing this article and I would be grateful if you wish to pursue the title move that you open a discussion on the Talk page instead. Thank you.

Warnings

Jetboil

So far, it appears that you are unwilling to have remain even one single edit made in the last day by anyoneo ther than yourself. You have reverted, three times, all previous edits. This is a clear danger sign that you are "owning" the article. Please review WP:3rr as well as wp:ownership again -- and enter a discussion on the article talk page that demonstrates you are willing to participate collaboratively.

In the meantime, please review the guidelines regarding advertising and promotion on Wikipedia. I suggest that the article is of limited notability and that it uses many promotional photographs, clearly generated by the company's own marketing department. The article uses a plethora of proprietary names -- where more straightforward descriptive terminology would alleviate this aspect of the article. The article gives subsections to each model and aggrandizes their differences -- the very way a marketing department would. There is very little outside critical thinking or points of view presented in the article -- that would place the company or its products in a wider context. What are the problems and dangers currently with these products? I ask that you please consider these points before reverting the article again.

Please note the continued discussion on the Jetboil talk page.842U (talk) 14:24, 11 November 2014 (UTC)

I've said it before now I'll say it again: I do not own the article, I just happen to be the only major contributor. This company's products are only what makes the company notable.Qxukhgiels (talk) 19:54, 11 November 2014 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:Jetboil jetpower-3.png

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Jetboil jetpower-3.png. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Eeekster (talk) 23:15, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

Request reason:

I was not actually "edit warring," as WP:EW defines it. I didn't even break WP:3RR. I was making constructive contributions, as well as removing unconstructive contributions. I did not WP:OWN the article; if you check the history closely, you will see that I indeed did leave a lot of 842U's changes. I just happened to be the only major contributor. The user had made some unconstructive changes to the lead section that I had tried to resolve with them multiple times, but they remained silent about it. I also removed practically all of the ad-like tone, which is why the advert tag was no longer necessary.Qxukhgiels (talk) 16:13, 6 December 2014 (UTC)

Decline reason:

Definitely appears to be edit warring to me. Breaking 3RR is not the only way to be blocked for edit warring. See a third opinion on this article if you feel like that things are unconstructive between you and the other editor. I definitely agree with Slakr's assessment and subsequent block. only (talk) 16:52, 6 December 2014 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first and then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page until your block has expired.

@Only:- please check the history more thoroughly; you will see that I was indeed reverting unconstructive edits, as well as discussing them with the user, who remained silent. You will also see that I did indeed leave a lot of the user's changes. I suggest you open a block review at WP:AN please.Qxukhgiels (talk) 16:56, 6 December 2014 (UTC)

You're welcome to attempt another appeal here on the page, but I will not be opening an AN thread for this as two admins (myself and Bbb23) have endorsed the action already. only (talk) 17:03, 6 December 2014 (UTC)

purple.com

Hi,

purple.com is problematic for a number of reasons. Primarily there is no evidence that it existed on the web in 1994. The domain existed yes. But the domain was in use for email and usenet news in late 1994, as seen by news articles and email using this domain. However there is no mention in usenet archives, or nasa what's new, or www-talk mailing list of this website existing in 1994. The articles that now make this claim offer no evidence.

The second reason is that purple.com is a commercial website, and has been since at least 1998, the earliest version available on archive.org. They lease or sell email addresses and subdomains, they lease the top level domain. And this web page has not been an all purple site the entire time (if ever). There always seem to be sub-pages, with additional information (usually commercial). The earliest versions were advertisements for the company, and included other dynamic elements like pictures. Even today, the site is open to advertising, and as such the listing on Wikipedia has the appearance of driving traffic to a commercial site.

So to sum up, it may not have existed in 1994, nobody was talking about it (not notable), and it doesn't even seem to be a true single-serving website at any point in its history, and it could be viewed as advertising via Wikipedia. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Battling McGook (talkcontribs) 17:41, 9 December 2014 (UTC)

So the domain didn't exist? I've checked WHOIS and web archives and this definitely complies with WP:NWEB. True no one may have been talking about it at the time, but that is not what notability on Wikipedia is built on; I suggest you review WP:GNG- WP is about significant coverage in reliable sources, not about how well something is known. The site, according to WHOIS records, has always consisted of simply a purple-coloured background, suppages being added to address peoples questions in 2006. This is not the official site of a business; it may be a commerical website, but it is not for an organisation; I don't doubt that it is owned by one, but it is not an advertising site. Please read the references and you will indeed find that the site has existed since August 1994 (not 1998 as you say) and is most certainly a single serving site.Qxukhgiels (talk) 20:51, 9 December 2014 (UTC)
I contacted the creator of purple.com and he claims the website was up at the same time the domain was registered. I have some other issues (it is a commercial site with advertising), but I'll accept that it's close enough to the criteria listed at the top of the web page and leave it there.Battling McGook (talk) 18:45, 10 December 2014 (UTC)
You may have a WP:COI with this and related articles. Just in case, please review WP:PAY, and remember to cite your claims regardless of your personal knowledge. But, thanks for your contributions.Qxukhgiels (talk) 22:24, 12 December 2014 (UTC)

Brollos

Information icon Hello Qxukhgiels. Thanks for patrolling new pages – it's a very important task! I'm just letting you know, however, that you shouldn't tag pages as lacking context (CSD A1), or content (CSD A3), moments after they are created, as you did at Brollos. It's best to wait at least 10–15 minutes for more content to be added if the page is very short, and the articles should not be marked as patrolled. Tagging such pages in a very short space of time may drive away well-meaning contributors, which is not good for Wikipedia. Attack pages (G10), blatant nonsense (G1), copyright violations (G12) and pure vandalism/blatant hoaxes (G3) should of course be tagged and deleted immediately. Thanks. The Big Bad Wolfowitz (aka Hullaballoo) (talk) 19:49, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

True, but the user should draft in their own userspace- I've notified them about that. Qxukhgiels (talk) 19:50, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
That may be your opinion, but it's not policy- or guideline-based. On the other hand, this is part of the speedy deletion policy: Consensus has developed that in most cases articles should not be tagged for deletion under this criterion moments after creation as the creator may be actively working on the content; though there is no set time requirement, a ten-minute delay before tagging under this criterion is suggested as good practice. Please do not mark the page as patrolled prior to that suitable delay passing, so that the wait does not result in the article escaping review at a later time.

Article tagged as a test

Not sure this is the right criterion. I think it's probably speedyable, but it looks like an attempt to advertise or spam. Please make sure you read up on the Criteria for Speedy Deletion and tread carefully. LouiseS1979 (pigeonhole) 21:58, 12 January 2015 (UTC)

I know. The only reason I perceived it as a possible test is because of the few English characters in the typo. But, again, that could've been a typo.Qxukhgiels (talk) 21:59, 12 January 2015 (UTC)
Those would probably be words or numbers untranslatable into Chinese; that's a feature I've seen in such writing elsewhere. I've requested someone who can speak Chinese take a look at the text, although I'd have just speedied it as promotional. In general, foreign-language articles should be tagged for translation rather than deletion, unless they're obvious spam or non-notable biographies, rather than labelled as tests.

I have unreviewed a page you curated

Hi, I'm Lstanley1979. I wanted to let you know that I saw the page you reviewed, 武汉3d培训班, and have un-reviewed it again. If you have any questions, please ask them on my talk page. Thank you. LouiseS1979 (pigeonhole) 22:10, 12 January 2015 (UTC)

I removed the speedy criterion and was going to tag it as G11 spam. However, someone else, Largoplazo, has tagged this as a copyvio anyway, so the outcome isn't much different anyway. LouiseS1979 (pigeonhole) 22:13, 12 January 2015 (UTC)
I saw. Thanks. Qxukhgiels (talk) 22:14, 12 January 2015 (UTC)
No probs. LouiseS1979 (pigeonhole) 22:15, 12 January 2015 (UTC)

EmilyBitGold

The username "EmilyBitGold" is perfectly fine and not a violation of policy. It's a textbook example of the "Mark at Alcoa" rule. Jackmcbarn (talk) 22:19, 12 January 2015 (UTC)

@Jackmcbarn:- sorry. I just got the impression it may have to do with the unnotable company they were promoting.Qxukhgiels (talk) 22:21, 12 January 2015 (UTC)
It obviously does, but since it nevertheless refers to a specific individual, it's allowed. Jackmcbarn (talk) 22:22, 12 January 2015 (UTC)

UAA

Hello, if you're reporting a username to UAA, there is generally no need to leave {{username concern}} on their talk page as UAA is for names that require administrator intervention. In most cases it doesn't do much harm, but in cases of obvious abuse (like Willy on Wheels was the best vandal) or seriously offensive usernames, it's best to block and ignore. Thanks, HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 20:17, 14 January 2015 (UTC)

I don't recall doing this, but if I did, it was a mistake. Qxukhgiels (talk) 22:16, 15 January 2015 (UTC)
One other thing: We don't normally block corporate usernames unless the account has edited in connection with the company, so please don't report accounts that have yet to edit unless they're obviously offensive or otherwise disruptive enough that the name itself is enough to block. Thanks very much, and keep up the good work, HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 19:08, 16 January 2015 (UTC)
@HJ Mitchell: Thanks. Would you be willing to create protect Matthew Santoro before it gets recreated again. I put a request over an hour ago at WP:RFP (it has since been recreated once), but so far nobody has responded to it.Qxukhgiels (talk) 19:14, 16 January 2015 (UTC)
Sure, done. RfPP is another of my regular haunts. I'll go and have a look at it when I've finished what I'm doing at the moment. Best, 19:44, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

The Sweet Remains Speedy Deletion

Hi Qxukhgiels—I'd like to request that you remove the Speedy Deletion notice from The Sweet Remains. I understand your reasoning, and I've already contested this on their talk page, but I am waiting on further information in order to complete the page. Please have patience while new information is gathered that might reverse your assessment.

Thank you for your understanding.
