Category:Religious schools by country[edit]

Could you please restore the category and its subcats? It was emptied out-of-process yesterday by User:Bogic. I'm reverting the changes. -- Paul_012 (talk) 18:37, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Restored all my deletions. If there are any restores of deletions done by others, let me know. Bogic (talk · contribs) has not even been reprimanded for this. Do you think a brief admonitory block might be appropriate? — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 23:48, 8 August 2014 (UTC)
    • Thanks. I think the edits were made in good faith, even if somewhat misguided. I thought of leaving him a note, but wasn't sure what to say. --Paul_012 (talk) 14:11, 9 August 2014 (UTC)

Automatic pitch turbine[edit]

I would like to know why you delete my article. I understand that the first time my article got deleted was because I did not cite a reliable source. But this time I am citing from a reliable source, United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Also this article is about an invention which technical aspects are being explained here. And can not be changed in second article. But I did amend by using this reliable source. Please explain why you delete this automatic pitch turbine. Respectfully: Israel Otiz — Preceding unsigned comment added by Wing4700 (talkcontribs) 02:38, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

  • A link to USPTO is actually the exact opposite of evidence of notability! It says: 'nobody has taken any interest in this idea - the only thing I can quote is the patent number'. Kindly have the decency to wait until: a) this idea is actually implemented as hardware, installed and shown to work, b) receives independent mention in reliable sources and, finally, c) someone with no COI writes about it here. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 09:20, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

Isaac Fadoyebo[edit]

Hello Roger (RHaworth), You deleted my submission for Isaac Fadoyebo because it didn't meet the significance test however I feel your deletion is not merited. Please restore the page.

4. The Barnaby Phillips article references Isaac Fadoyebo. Furthermore, Barnaby Phillip's documentary about Fadoyebo can also be viewed here.

5. The most important reason why Fadoyebo's submission in Wikipedia is important is that his personal account of the war is now stored at the Imperial War Museum .

I hope I hear from you soon. Cheers, Oloye79. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Oloye79 (talkcontribs)

  • Please learn how to: create wikilinks, clothe naked URLs, create numbered lists and not to clutter talk pages with article material. What was your reason 3. ?! I have to admit that the lower case f in the title probably influenced the person who applied the speedy tag and myself. Storage in the Imperial War Museum is actually the least important reason and scarcely deserves mention. The museum aims to be comprehensive - it will accept any submission relevant to its remit but that simply does not make the submission notable. Conversely, the Golden Eagle award (if you can fix this broken link) won by Barnaby Phillips, although indirect is slight evidence of notability.
I have restored your text to User:Oloye79/sandbox. You must: re-write the text to fix the copyvios and add more references then re-submit via AfC. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 09:20, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

Gee Funding[edit]

Please restore the Article: Draft:GeeFunding. This article does not pose any advertisement or promotion. The company hired me to help write and publish this article based on their service. All information contain on the GeeFunding article are genuine. Similar article in the same category from another company located at Kickstarter, GoFundMe and Indiegogo. Please restore the article for approval. If you have something you would like us change or remove form the article, please specify. Anticipating your understanding. Best regards, John D. McDaniel Tel: +1(214) 810-8413 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bizking2u (talkcontribs) 15:03, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Please go back to the company and say: "I do not have a clue what a Wikipedia article should look like. Companies writing about themselves on Wikipedia is, to put it mildly, strongly deprecated. So please do not find anybody else but kindly have the decency to wait until someone with no COI thinks your company is notable and writes about it." — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 13:26, 11 August 2014 (UTC)[edit]

Dear Roger, Please restore the Article*. I am new to this but open to constructive criticism and feedback to make any possible future article publishable. When you deleted the draft I had not finished my work (putting in my references). It was my understanding that Draft articles are not live ones. I'm only trying to follow the similar path of another organization whose article was not deleted as mine was Catholic Answers. We do similar work. Can you at least e-mail what you deleted. I put a lot of time to developing that article. Best regards, Mike Humphrey — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mikehump (talkcontribs) 20:46, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

  • There is a spooky similarity between the edits here by Bizking2u (see above) and yours. Please explain why you posted your message twice. It is also very strange that you compare your article to Catholic Answers. Within the first few lines of your article I read: "We are a new breed …, we do the best we can … and we proclaim …". This tells me that you clearly have not read the Catholic Answers article, or indeed, any other Wikipedia article or you would not be submitting something so far distant from what we expect. Text reluctantly emailed. Do not even think about re-posting it here, instead kindly have the decency to wait until someone with no COI thinks your website is notable and writes about it here. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 13:26, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

Is this best format you can sent it to me? — Mikehump (talk · contribs) [via email] 2014 Aug 11, 14:10 (UTC)

  • So what format would you like? And why? — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 21:52, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

Roger, Are you going to allow me to finish the work I started in my Draft:AskACatholic* ? Can you please restore what I started and provide guidance on how to adjust what I have written. The work my group does is no different than Catholic Answers. Mike Humphrey mikehump — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mikehump (talkcontribs) 14:19, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

Robin Hunicke[edit]

I see you deleted File talk:Robinhunicke 240x160 August2009.jpg. Can you place the content that was formerly there at File talk:Robinhunicke at thatgamecompany photoshoot, August 2009.jpg. There seems to have been a page move without the corresponding talk pages.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 01:44, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

Survey Camp[edit]

Hi, I have written the article by the name of Survey Camp. But no one has reviewed it yet for about two days. Take care of this matter immediately. Thanks User:Owais khursheed — Preceding undated comment added 15:34, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

  • What a strange question! You release something direct into article space, just be grateful no-one has tried to delete it. Why should you expect anyone else to edit it? If you want your article reviewed, use the AfC process. So I have moved your article to Draft:Survey camp. Please learn that naked URLs are obscene. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 15:56, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

Question related to the thread above[edit]

Hello RHaworth. Recently this article John J. "Bald Jack" Ryan was created by what looks to be a SPA editor. A discussion on the talk page wound up showing that there are some references out there that could be used but at the moment it is an unsourced mess that (IMO) is a long way away from being a Wikipedia article. The question I have is there a place to go other than AFD to recommend that it be moved to a user sandbox or draft space as you did with the article mentioned in the above thread? If not are there any other alternatives? Thanks for your time. MarnetteD|Talk 16:07, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

  • The wiki motto is "be bold". It is not done very often but I see no reason why you should not userfy the article yourself. When you have done it, apply a {{db-r2}} tag to the redirect you have created and explain to the author why you have done it. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 17:56, 11 August 2014 (UTC)
@MarnetteD: I'm going to revert the suggested boldness... if you think the topic is notable, then fix it in place. There's no need to take it back to draft first. It's not an unsourced mess, and any mess that exists, you can fix. Because, if you know certain items are messy, then, by definition, you (MarnetteD) know what the fixes are for that messiness.
In other situations, I would wholeheartedly support a move back to draft space. This is not one of those situations. --Demiurge1000 (talk) 20:14, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the responses. I have not dealt with this before so I appreciate the input. RH, I haven't userfied anything before and I am leery of creating redirects. I am as likely to mess it up as not. D, I am not interested in the subject at all and I don't have the time or desire to work on the article. When I posted my question there were no sources in the article. I notice that there are some now. It is still a long way from encyclopedic and reads like a college thesis paper. But that is just me. Others who are interested in the subject will come along and improve it in time. Thanks again to you both for sharing your thoughts. Cheers. MarnetteD|Talk 20:32, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

Waiting for review[edit]

David Rubenstein[edit]

Hello RHaworth! I recently had an article tagged for possible self-promotion when I was trying to seek help from other users on how to get my article ready for publishing. The article was User:Theharrybell/David Rubenstein (attorney). Is there any way that you can restore this deletion? Also, if you have any suggestions on how to make my article better so that it is not tagged for deletion again, I would greatly appreciate the help. Thank you RHaworth! — Theharrybell (talk) 18:00, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Please search this page for the word "kindly". In the unlikely event that you have no COI, work through Category:American lawyers. I am sure that among those 3000+ bios there are some that need improvement. When you have built up a contributions history of more than 100 edits to at least 50 different articles you will be in a much better position to convince suspicious people like me that you have no COI. Also you should have gained an idea of what a Wikipedia lawyer bio should look like. I would be happy to email you some suggested content - read this. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 20:26, 12 August 2014 (UTC)


Hello, I want to publish an article about a company I work for Xeltek and I saw a previous article that was deleted in 2012 because: A7: Article about a company, corporation, organization, or group, which does not indicate the importance or significance of the subject. This is a Global leader company in its industry that has more than 20 years of history so I would like to know how did we fail to indicate the significance of the subject, other companies of the sector such as Elnec have an article in Wikipedia. In their page they mention Xeltek as big competitor. We can provide strong secondary sources and information about the company. This is a technology company that manufacturers programmers and works on developing technology,it also publishes valuable information on electrical engineering and programming. I would like to write an informational article about the company, its history and its trademark registered line product. Please let me know how to proceed. Thank you, Pilarxeltek (talk · contribs)

  • This edit is by someone who clearly does not know how to use a Wikipedia talk page. You are the same. You asked your question eight days (almost to the minute!) earlier and I replied to it. Did you attempt to look for my reply? Please answer. You will now find it here. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 09:02, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

Requesting RevDel[edit]

Hi, I am contacting you as you appear to be the only active admin at the minute according to the logs. With my OTRS hat on, I would be greatful if you could revdel a copyvio present in the page history of CZ 99 per Ticket:2014081210024714 (the last good diff was [1]. If you require any more information, I would be greatful if you could email me, as I prefer not to give away too much on-wiki about tickets. Thanks in advance, Mdann52talk to me! 11:39, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

Talk page redirect?[edit]

Why redirect a talk page of an article that was deleted basically because of vandalism? WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 15:24, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

OK, I see that you have not modified things now so that London, Ashford and Dover Railway now redirects to London, Chatham and Dover Railway. Why? Do you have any indication (other than 1234asd's vandalistic actions) that any ever referred to the railway by that name? WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 15:32, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Oh dear, two goofs in rapid succession: putting the redirect on the talk page and this edit. So I gave myself a break. Creating the redirect at all was not a goof - I did it before I realised that the page had been created by a vandalism only account. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 16:00, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

James Blackmon, Jr.[edit]

You deleted this page three years ago because of the A7 rule. I intend to show that he now meets the notability guidelines. Mhults7791 (talk) 19:47, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

It is completely unacceptable to dump a sentence and a bunch of empty sections in articlespace and call it an article. As created, what you put down fails WP:A7 conclusively. Use a sandbox, such as User:Mhults7791/sandbox or User:Mhults7791/James Blackmon, Jr., in future.--Launchballer 20:11, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

Please allow sufficient time for articles under construction to be developed, especially when intentions have been publicly declared. Mhults7791 (talk) 03:17, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

  • You have been contributing for more than four years. You should have learnt by now that it is suicide to start an article in mainspace. Always start in a userspace draft. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 10:34, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

Deletion of SoodenHostageVideo.png[edit]

Hi there. I am not familiar with the rules around posting images and was wondering if the following image is absolutely not permissible: File:SoodenHostageVideo.png. I'd like to use a screenshot from the hostage video of a hostage in Iraq that was taken by the kidnappers (see Harmeet Singh Sooden). However, it seems news media has taken over the copyright. Any suggestions you may have would be appreciated. Thank you, Wikimuntu (talk) 00:09, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Please learn to use wikilinks. I agree that copyright almost certainly rests with the hostage takers - and they were probably not bothered about copyright when they released the video and might be difficult to contact to get their retrospective release! But since you are accepting that the copyright of the page applies to the image, the position is simple. The democracynow page has a licence of {{cc-by-nc-nd-3.0}} but both the NC and ND clauses are not allowed on Wikimedia sites - we demand {{cc-by-sa-3.0}} or less stringent. You may get some joy if you upload with a fair use claim, especially if you point out the dubious right of democracynow to the copyright. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 10:34, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Incidentally, the extremists currently making a nuisance of themselves in Iraq are extremely active on social media, and also a fair number of them are fluent in English due to having been brought up in the UK. So contacting an individual who might plausibly claim to speak on behalf of the copyright owner may not be as difficult as one would think. And they do seem to like publicity. I agree with RHaworth that an attempt at fair use might also work (or not), and that news media don't get to "take over" copyright just because they imagine some content is newsworthy. --Demiurge1000 (talk) 17:13, 15 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Thanks for your comments. Wikimuntu (talk) 01:34, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

Priceline HK[edit]

I redirected Priceline HK to the Chinese page which contains content there. Why did you delete it with the reason of no content? Look forward to your response. — Joe - Preceding unsigned comment added by Wsjwong (talkcontribs) 04:27, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Please look at Category:Wikipedia soft redirects. They all redirects within English language wikis. We simply do not do cross-language redirects. What use is a page in Chinese to users of the English Wikipedia? — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 10:34, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

Juan Baigorri Velar[edit]

Why was Juan Baigorri Velar deleted? It was a translation of es:Juan Baigorri Velar, the Spanish version of the same article. Jasenlee (talk) 03:58, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Despite ten years of contributing you still have not learned: to place messages at the bottom of a talk page, how to create wikilinks or that setting up an email address is a good idea. The log tells you the primary deletion reason. The prod had been applied because something important had been lost in translation: all references. The article was created by SaulPerdomo (talk · contribs) as a "fly-by" exercise - he dumped it and never bothered to see what happened. I will be happy to restore and userfy for anyone who intends to bring it up to standard. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 09:13, 15 August 2014 (UTC)
After writing the above, I actually went back and read the article! I need to learn a bit of Spanish ready for Wikimania next year so I may read a bit more. Here is a good reference in English. Any new version of the article needs to have a strong note of scepticism at the end. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 09:25, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

John Fry (businessman)[edit]

Your speedy deletion of the article was under A3, which doesn't make any sense. Please restore the content with revision history. Thanks. -- C S (talk) 21:45, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

Please learn to read a log listing. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 22:06, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

I don't see any justification other than you citing A3. Please explain your rationale for deletion. Otherwise I will submit this to deletion review with the comment that deleting admin refuses to explain him/herself. Thanks. -- C S (talk) 00:28, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

  • For goodness sake!! The log is counter-chronological. Look at the timestamps. What is the last thing I did to the page? — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 00:36, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

You moved it to a user's sandbox. Now why on earth would you delete a perfectly good stub by citing A3, and then restore-move it to a user page? I don't see any explanation here or or in the log. -- C S (talk) 00:41, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

The movement of the page to a sandbox was correct. It is very unlikely to survive an AfD. -- Launchballer 11:28, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
  • I have now restored the missing edit so you can see the full history. JasonHockeyGuy (talk · contribs) requested deletion, so I deleted it. OK, strictly speaking A3 did not apply but since it was a clear A7 candidate, I was not going to object. He then changed his mind (see this exchange). So I restored it per his request. C S, you have done nothing to this article in eight years, why have you woken up and taken an interest now? And do you or Jason have any intention of turning it into a proper article? — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 13:00, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

Why did you delete logo?[edit]

Why did you delete File:BoomStartup_logo.png? It's the logo for BoomStartup and I am building a page for it in my sandbox. Jr105 (talk) 01:32, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Please read this. I believe there is a rule that fair use images are only allowed in mainspace so best to wait until the article is accepted and then upload the logo with a fair use rationale - there are thousands of logos already uploaded to show you how to do it. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 13:00, 18 August 2014 (UTC)


Hi, I noticed the image file which I have uploaded has been deleted. (File:SereneKoongImage.jpg) This picture was captured by me and I genuinely would like to upload it for the artist. If you could please help me with the correct copyright terms to choose so that it does not get deleted again. Many thanks, Dave Chrisjoselim (talk) 07:02, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Does the copyright of the image belong to Serene Koong rather than the organisers of the awards ceremony? If she does hold the rights, then the answer given here is as good as any. Alternatively, she may grant permission as explaind here. In any case the image should be uploaded to the Commons not here and her web page must be changed to make it clear that the image is available under a Creative Commons licence. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 13:00, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

Q&Aid Research Institute deletion[edit]

You recently deleted a wikipedia page on Q&Aid Research Institute on 18 August 2014, 09:23 because of (A7: Article about a company, corporation or organization, which does not indicate the importance or significance of the subject). I believe that this is not true. The wikipedia page I posted about this company had no bias or promotional material. Everything was properly cited and nothing on that page was false. While this company is new and does not have much attention, it does provide an important community service by providing free information on cancer prevention methods and health management techniques. The company currently has a database for traditional herbal medicine with modern scientific backing and research. this should fall under and "educational institute" and it does have importance and significance. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:35, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

Kindly have the decency to (1) always sign on a talk page with the four tides at the end of every comment. (2) wait until the company becomes notable and someone with no COI will write about it here. — Wikicology (talk) 03:40, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

James Stout (rackets)[edit]

You seem to have deleted an afc for world champion in two sports, which had extensive acceptable documentation (which I verified). Fortunately, I check the deletion log from time to time, even though it is much harder to check on the contents after an article has been deleted. Relying on a no longer present editor to ask for restoration is not often effective. I apologized to the after I undeleted and accepted the article as it stood, though I subsequently made a few formatting changes. (to be sure, the editor made the error of not formally re-submitting it after he changed the unacceptable references to acceptable ones, but we can hardly expect newcomers to get our procedures right all the time.) — DGG ( talk ) 16:03, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

Question about deleted page[edit]

Why Philippines national under-21 football team was deleted? OccultZone (TalkContributionsLog) 07:34, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

@OccultZone: I don't think RHaworth (talk · contribs) deleted the page. Wikicology (talk) 09:00, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
Wikicology: He did. He deleted it and then subsequently restored it.
OccultZone, please be aware that your signature is currently broken - the closing </span> is in the wrong place. I have moved this instance - it should be after Zone and before ''' - but do update it in your preferences.--Launchballer 09:11, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
you are right @Launchballer: I assumed it was not deleted since it has been restored. Wikicology (talk) 09:18, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

Fixed signature, thanks. RHaworth just deleted the talk page.[5] Although there seems to be no issues with the new version. OccultZone (TalkContributionsLog) 11:45, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

The is the problem. I know I do moan probably unnecessarily about them but I use WP:Syntaxhighlight, and such errors break it.--Launchballer 19:17, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Wikicology, if you are going to answer on my behalf, do it properly. I am prepared to forgive your link error which was corrected here. But to say "I don't think RHaworth deleted the page" is unforgivable sloppiness. You should provide a link to the article log and say categorically "RHaworth deleted the page twice".
OccultZone, you are just as sloppy - if you link to the talk page log you can see that I have not "just deleted" it (whether "just" means "recently" or "only" makes no difference) but did it a week ago at the same time as I deleted the article.
As to my actions, I am never sure of the notability criteria for sports people and sports clubs. In fact I should have been suspicious because the page had been blanked. Checking, I see that the deletion nomination was clear vandalism so I was happy to restore. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 18:50, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

Deletion of CyberGhost VPN[edit]

Hello RHaworth, Sorry for coming back to this topic a bit later than helpful, but we have a time difference here so I just noticed that the article CyberGhost VPN has been deleted faster than the speed of light ... ;-) I didn't intend to provoke such a harsh reaction. Otherwise I would have sandboxed the article and discussed it from there. In fact, I had been pretty sure I have avoided as much pitfuls as possible to leave room enough for discussions with other Wikipedians to create an article which serves public interests - that's why I did tag the article with the neutrality flag myself. I obviously failed. But I am also very astonished to be kicked out from Wikipedia, even though I offered all possible forms of discussing the topic (imo). So, how can we open a frutile discussion? I'd be eager to learn, why you decided the way you did, what you think, I/we can do better, what passages need to be re-written and what other changes need to be done. After all, CyberGhost VPN is a software product like many others and does serve a public interest by providing a powerful free anonymization service for everybody. - Ulrich (which is my real name) W1k1p1CG (talk) 10:36, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

The advert you posted was so execrably promotional had it turned up in userspace it would still have been deleted. Kindly have the decency to wait until someone with no COI thinks you are notable and writes about you here.--Launchballer 12:00, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Well, ever thought about why I never made any attempt to hide my intentions? I actually thought, we are all grown ups and would be able to start a discussion without offending people. To make this one clear: I am not a marketing specialists nor do I want to be confused as one nor am I experienced with Wikipedia. I am just an ordinary german content provider who tried to start an article in a foreign language and actually also asked for help. So did anybody actually read what I wrote or was it just a reflex? However, I carefully read about COI and do understand your point of view - even though I felt misunderstood and offended by the words you used and the harsh reactions. I believe as much as you in what Wikipedia should provide (an objective encyclopedia of everything) - but we might just have different opinions on how to reach that goal ... - Ulrich (talk) 09:39, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
  • "Frutile" what a lovely neologism! I assume it is a combination of fruitless and futile and since you admit that a discussion would be such, then there is no need to start one. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 19:12, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
  • You assumed wrongly, sorry. It was simply a mistake, based on the German word 'fruchtbar'. I just confused it with the English word 'frutile' because of its somehow similar spelling for me as a German. However, that's nothing I expect you should have known, of course, but, since these are my last words here about this topic (the article on Wikipedia had been given up) allow me to correct this to fruitile as a neologism to fruitful and fertile. Have a nice life. - Ulrich (talk) 09:39, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

Cool Freaks' Wikipedia Club[edit]

According to A7 of Criteria for Speedy deletion, would New Zealand's Wellington City Libraries count as an educational institution? -- DrWho42 (talk) 17:46, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

Fair enough! I will await further citations before embarking on another article on the subject.--DrWho42 (talk) 21:12, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

  • I have just realised that your strange question above was possibly meant to say "would Wellington City Libraries count as a reliable source?" And to that question my answer would be: only just, in any case you need multiple reliable sources with significant coverage and this page is not exactly significant coverage. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 22:54, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
It did garner media coverage via Fast Company and The Atlantics's deputy editor Alexis Madrigal.--DrWho42 (talk) 23:07, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

Nein, Herr Zein[edit]

Why You Delete My Article? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Khader El Zein (talkcontribs) 19:37, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Why You Begin Every Word Of A Sentence With A Capital Letter? Why you use PNG format for your photo instead of JPG? Why you think Wikipedia will accept your fantasy/hoax rubbish? — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 19:51, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

My page was real Why You Deleted — Preceding unsigned comment added by Khader El Zein (talkcontribs) 20:10, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

  • The page was real but the content was fiction. Show me your evidence! But in any case kindly have the decency to wait until someone with no COI thinks you are notable and writes about you here. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 20:49, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

Fury 325[edit]

Can you please remove the ban you placed on creating the Fury 325 article? The roller coaster has been announced and there are numerous reliable sources establishing the roller coaster is real and notable. Thank you. -- Dom497 (talk) 20:19, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Submit a new article via AfC. If it gets accepted then unprotection will be uncontroversial. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 20:49, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

Unprotection won't be controversial at all....I guarantee it. Going through AfC is going to take for ever. Please, trust me on this one. I'm the one that nominated the article for deletion and now I'm saying to allow it to be re-created. Do a Google search of "Fury 325 carowinds". -- Dom497 (talk) 21:52, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

  • OK, there is a permanent backlog on AfC but that does not fit my definition of "for ever" and certainly an AfC decision would be received well before the ride starts operating. But if you can find another admin willing to unprotect, I have no objection and you may point them to this statement. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 22:54, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

Fury 325 (Carowinds)[edit]

Hi, I'm unable to move Fury 325 (Carowinds) to the proper Fury 325 because the latter is protected from creation. I assume this was done by you after you deleted an article with this name.[6] Kindly conduct this move using your administrator tools. Thanks.--PinkBull 00:49, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
