Tekken 7[edit]

I wasn't the one who edited the Tekken 7 page and wrote that "it will be released on Playstation 4 Playstation 3 and Xbox one Xbox 360 on April 2015 and Aracade". That edit was made by user "Ghvy". I don't know why you said that was my revision that was undone. Osh33m (talk) 02:18, 10 February 2015 (UTC)

Hi Osh33m, if you look again you'll see that I reverted to your version. Sam Walton (talk) 08:24, 10 February 2015 (UTC)
Oh okay, sorry about that. If you look, there are seemingly two IPs who keep on revising the page, removing the image and changing the character list. Is there a way to stop them? Osh33m (talk) 19:27, 10 February 2015 (UTC)
I'll semi protect the article for a bit. Sam Walton (talk) 21:10, 10 February 2015 (UTC)

Ile in the head[edit]

Hi Sam, I've added some info at the Maelbros SPI that links MadamQueroux to a French IP. The French IP re-added a piece of vandalism that she created. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 17:35, 11 February 2015 (UTC)

I think IP might be another incarnation. Orleans, France, Orange ISP. Obvious hoax content here (gibberish episode summary and fake episodes). Same thing here. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 17:40, 26 February 2015 (UTC)

Hi Samwalton9! How are you? Copyright isn't my area, so I wanted to point you to this good faith edit by a new user, which is direct verbatim of the website the user referenced. Thanks! --Bananasoldier (talk) 15:30, 12 February 2015 (UTC)

Thanks Bananasoldier, taken care of. Hope you're well. Sam Walton (talk) 15:37, 12 February 2015 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Tampon Run[edit]

You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles. See the Article Wizard.

Thank you.

A tag has been placed on Tampon Run, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising that only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become an acceptable page. Please read the general criteria for speedy deletion, particularly item G11, as well as the guidelines on spam.

If you can indicate why the subject of this page is not blatant advertising, Speedy delete contest button.svg. Clicking that button will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to 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 tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. You are welcome to edit the page to fix this problem, but please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. As well as removing promotional phrasing, it helps to add factual encyclopaedic information to the page, and add citations from independent reliable sources to ensure that the page will be verifiable. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. (talk) 10:35, 21 February 2015 (UTC)

  • Are you contesting a speedy delete of an nonsense promotional article that lacks any level of reasonable notability? (talk) 10:54, 21 February 2015 (UTC)
    • No, that's why I only reverted one of your edits, the one that redirected the article. The CSD tag is still there. I can't for the life of me see how you can consider the article promotional but the admin who reviews the request for deletion can be the judge of that. Sam Walton (talk) 10:58, 21 February 2015 (UTC)
      • If it's not notable then the A7 criteria should be used instead(as non-notable web content). 331dot (talk) 11:00, 21 February 2015 (UTC)
  • It was listed as promotional spam first and also as nonsense but spam has a high priority to be eliminated. There is no good reason to list every game out there no matter how amusing the title may be. It makes a mockery of Wikipedia's purpose as an encyclopedia.

Proposed deletion of Tampon Run‎[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Tampon Run‎ has been proposed for deletion. The proposed deletion notice added to the article should explain why.

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.

  • Look, if you really don't think this article passes the threshold of notability, then start an AfD. Sam Walton (talk) 11:33, 21 February 2015 (UTC)

I believe MaelLePetitPrincePuisRoi (talk · contribs) belongs in User:Samwalton9/Maelbros. Materialscientist (talk) 10:40, 21 February 2015 (UTC)

Edit request for Sophie Hunter page[edit]

Hello! Can I ask a favor, please? Regarding Sophie Hunter's page, in her infobox J. E. B. Seely, 1st Baron Mottistone is listed as her "maternal great-great-grandfather", if you double-check the source, Seely is actually only his "maternal great-grandfather". In her Background (Family) section, it also lists Seeley as "great-great-grandfather", can you please be so kind and remove the extra "great" to make it accurate? And describing Seeley as "World War I hero" can be considered fluffing and violates neutral point-of-view. The page should plainly describe him as a politician. Thank you very much for your consideration! Keep up the good work here on Wiki! (talk) 11:17, 21 February 2015 (UTC)

Hi, it would be better to make this request at Talk:Sophie Hunter. Sam Walton (talk) 11:18, 21 February 2015 (UTC)

Block evader who got blocked for starting an SPI[edit]

My cellular IP changes all the time and I never know when as it used by millions. But I went back to check on a SPI I started and found that the last SPI had been deleted quickly. I went to see what happened by looking up a contentious article that existed for 9 years and was deleted based on ideological push. I noticed my notice of an SPI to other editors involved in a lengthy and heated deletion discussion (names I got from the deletion record) were deleted by User:Chillum. I also noticed he falsely accused me of being a sock for starting a SPI. So here I am squawking about it and evading his block, although unknowingly when I first started editing today. I turned myself in, but showed the reason I was blocked as well, as Chillum has attempted to bury that. (talk) 11:02, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

See Jimbo's Page and ANI for discussion of Admin Chillum's abuse of an IP[edit]

Please follow through[edit]

Please re-delete the talk page archives of Talk:Cultural Marxism. You said that you would do so. They have not been used by anyone for a deletion review or for anything since you deleted them, meaning that they should not've been un-deleted in the first place. Please follow through on the conditions attached to the un-deletion. RGloucester 14:47, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for the reminder. I've asked if anyone is using them. Sam Walton (talk) 14:52, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
Please carry out the deletion. People who have not even edited the draft or anything saying "I'm using it" is a bunch of rubbish, and is the same behaviour as what led to the un-deletion in the first place. RGloucester 14:32, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
  • What's the story here, Mr Walton? RGloucester 23:28, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
    • The story is that a couple of editors have said they're using them. As sceptical as I am about that I'll assume good faith until such a time that the discussions on the draft talk page die down. The archives aren't harming anyone. Sam Walton (talk) 23:33, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
They are "harming" us all. Good faith has gone far enough. They've been more accessible than they should've been for months, with no result. Only one user said that he was "using them", but it is not clear what he is using them for given that he has had no involvement with the draft from the moment it was created until he made that one comment. Please follow through on the conditions attached to the un-deletion. Policies and guidelines have been circumvented enough. The result of the discussion was "delete". As much as some users who disagreed with the deletion would like to delay its implementation indefinitely, that is not a reason to allow them to get their way without a deletion review. Please re-delete these archives that are not being used at once. RGloucester 01:59, 26 February 2015 (UTC)

Sasha Hostyn[edit]

I'm curious if you've found a reliable source for Sasha Hostyn's birth date/month? I've only seen unreliable or questionable sources myself, and I spent quite some time looking after a conversation with another editor. Hostyn doesn't talk much about herself in her (rare) interviews, so I'm not sure we should be including anything that isn't reliably sourced. Woodroar (talk) 16:33, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

Hi Woodroar. I saw the December 1993 birthdate in the recent Guardian article/interview, and see no reason to assume it to be false. Sam Walton (talk) 16:36, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
You're absolutely right. I ctrl-Fed for "December" and didn't see it, but didn't think to look for "Dec". Sorry to be a bother. :) Cheers! Woodroar (talk) 16:39, 24 February 2015 (UTC)


hello, I see you deleted the page I wrote. I'm not here to have a fight or anything, but I wonder: there are many other Italian record labels with less history and relevance than Kutmusic, and their pages are listed on Wikipedia. Also, I cannot see how a record label with many publications - see Google, Discogs, - is not relevant and "Tampon Run" is... I am not going to republish that page, I hope you will change your mind and maybe help me improve it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:22, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

Hi there. Unfortunately there are many other bad articles on Wikipedia. They should be improved or deleted; it doesn't mean we should have more bad articles. Sam Walton (talk) 23:35, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

Hello again, then why not label it as stub or advise people to improive it instead than delete it entirely? I noticed the label was part of the original Napster case. I'd be happy to improve the article and make a longer version, but I'd prefer if you could undo the deletion first. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:26, 26 February 2015 (UTC)

I'm happy to undelete it and move the article to Draft space, but note that a previous deletion discussion found that the subject was unlikely to be appropriate for a Wikipedia article (Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Kutmusic). I've moved it to Draft:Kutmusic so you can work on it. Sam Walton (talk) 15:38, 26 February 2015 (UTC)

WikiCup 2015 March newsletter[edit]

One of several of Godot13's quality submissions during round 1

That's it, the first round is done, sign-ups are closed and we're into round 2. 64 competitors made it into this round, and are now broken into eight groups of eight. The top two of each group will go through to round 3, and then the top scoring 16 "wildcards" across all groups. Round 1 saw some interesting work on some very important articles, with the round leader Australia Freikorp (submissions) owing most of his 622 points scored to a Featured Article on the 2001 film Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within which qualified for a times-two multiplier. This is a higher score than in previous years, as Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions) had 500 points in 2014 at the end of round 1, and our very own judge, Colorado Sturmvogel_66 (submissions) led round 1 with 601 points in 2013.

In addition to Freikorp's work, some other important articles and pictures were improved during round one, here's a snapshot of a few of them:

You may also wish to know that The Core Contest is running through the month of March. Head there for further details - they even have actual prizes!

Scooby-Doo Adventures: The Mystery Map[edit]

Hi Sam! Just wanted to let you know that I reverted your revision that you made to Scooby-Doo! Adventures: The Mystery Map, the IP that you reverted on Feb. 5 was actually making a constructive edit when they deleted the narrator. There actually wasn't a narrator in the movie, an IP added it a year ago without an edit summary or source (!_Adventures:_The_Mystery_Map&diff=next&oldid=596374916), but it was never caught. Thanks, and just wanted to let you know. KatnissEverdeen (talk) 17:35, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

Hi KatnissEverdeen. Thanks for letting me know. The user that removed the narrator is someone who makes many incorrect changes to infoboxes (User:Samwalton9/Maelbros) so I didn't check every single edit when reverting. Sam Walton (talk) 17:53, 1 March 2015 (UTC)
