Featuring your work on Wikipedia's front page: DYKs[edit]

Symbol question.svg Thank you for your recent articles, including Polish Haitian, which I read with interest. When you create an extensive and well referenced article, you may want to have it featured on Wikipedia's main page in the Did You Know section. Articles included there will be read by thousands of our viewers. To do so, add your article to the list at T:TDYK. Let me know if you need help, Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 15:31, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

Thank you, that is great to know and I am glad it was appreciated! I enjoyed creating that one and it had some sentimental value to me as well. I look forward to bringing more noteworthy subjects to Wikipedia. While my current primary focus has been on the Caribbean, (specifically Haiti) I'd thought I'd start my work in the least developed country and then work my way over to Cuba and then to the rest of the Caribbean; then to Latin America and then to perhaps to Africa. There is a lot of history that isn't yet available from these continents that I wish to make known as it gives me great pleasure to do so. I am currently working to expand the dialect of French in Haiti called Haitian French, similarly to the current subjects available noting the French derivatives (example: Swiss French, Belgian French, African French etc). Right now, I believe the article is being unfairly challenged for deletion. The point of the article is to make a distinguish between "Haitian Creole" and "Haitian French". Many people are led to believe that "Haitian French" is the creole spoken in the land, but fail to understand that the French is in fact French and carries an accent in the way that many French countries carry as well. I've sourced it pretty heavy and think it is a good article but it is still a work in progress. If you would like to pitch in on the discussion as to why or why it shouldn't be deleted the talk page is Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Haitian French. Your input would be much appreciated! I will also definitely come to you if I need help on anything. Thanks again. (By the way I need to work on a cool signature too). Savvyjack23 (talk) 17:33, 12 February 2014 (UTC)

February 2014[edit]

Information icon Thank you for your contributions. Please mark your edits as "minor" only if they are minor edits. In accordance with Help:Minor edit, a minor edit is one that the editor believes requires no review and could never be the subject of a dispute. Minor edits consist of things such as typographical corrections, formatting changes or rearrangement of text without modification of content. Additionally, the reversion of clear-cut vandalism and test edits may be labeled "minor". Thank you. Cnilep (talk) 02:07, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

I always mark my edits down when it is a minor one; in fact I abuse this feature. SJ

I came here to make the same request and, I'm sorry, but I don't understand your above response. You are making significant additions to articles and marking the edit as minor when it isn't. Please don't do this. Also, please always use informative edit summaries. This will help others understand the intent of your edits.

Thanks Savvyjack23 for correcting the kompa from the compas music article. Honestly it was annoying to have to write down all these kompa-konpa...but people haven't reached a consensus on the word.

Haitian patty deleted[edit]

Haitian patty has again been deleted as copyright infringement. If memory serves, you created an earlier version of the article that was also deleted as copyright infringement. The administrator who deleted the new version of the article noted that it was not copied word for word, but was a close paraphrase of the source article.

I believe that you are editing in good faith, but I've also seen a number of things you added to Wikipedia removed. I hope you will review the advice about avoiding copyright infringement. In addition to the two links above, see Wikipedia:FAQ/Copyright and links included there. If you need help with writing or citing sources, feel free to ask. Happy (careful) editing, Cnilep (talk) 02:10, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

What I do not understand though is if I violated copyright rules why wasn't it reverted instead of being completely deleted? I created the article with one or two sentences first that was 100% original and added some more in a later edit. (Isn't original work forbidden as well?) I made sure it was not closely paraphrased the second time. The website also no loner exists. I believe it was wrongly deleted and should have been reverted instead according to Wiki's rules. It shouldn't be held to a double standard. Savvyjack23 (talk) 05:59, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

I did not delete the article, but I did communicate with DangerousPanda, the administrator who deleted it. If you believe that the deletion was improper, you can go to Wikipedia:Deletion review and ask other administrators to review the action. If they conclude that there was a version of the article free of copyright violation, they might restore it. It's probably best to ask User talk:DangerousPanda about it before listing at Deletion review.
You are right that original research is not allowed. That means that the facts or ideas included in the article should be attributed to reliable, published sources. (There is an exception: you don't need to cite a source for common knowledge, information that almost everyone knows.)
On the other hand, the actual words and sentences cannot be plagiarized. Plagiarism includes either copying sentences directly from sources, or changing the words very slightly (called close paraphrase; see the link above), among other behaviors. It can be tricky to obey both of those standards. It's not always clear exactly what is required, what is acceptable, and what is forbidden. I usually tell my students that if they have used four of the same words in the same order as their source material, they have probably committed plagiarism. But, that is simply a rule of thumb; it will not always avoid plagiarism.
Copyright infringement is a special case of plagiarism. It is not only against the ethical norms of writing and publishing; it is against the laws of many countries. For that reason, additions that violate copyright or articles that are mostly copyright violations are deleted from Wikipedia.
I do hope this helps, and I thank you again for your efforts. Cnilep (talk) 08:04, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, I appreciate your time to clear that up for me; you did a splendid job of doing so might I add. Okay, before I read this response, I created the article again (bare with me), removing the "information" in question and left what I thought was 100% appropriate and have added a "food stub" so the page could be further improved by anyone who wishes to do so, until I can revise it myself. I did so, so that the image I uploaded would not be removed due to being in "limbo" or not used. Just saving some time that's all. By the way, I wasn't inferring that you deleted the page, just meant about the deletion in general. Thank you for the kind words :) Cheers. Savvyjack23 (talk) 08:13, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

Mia Love[edit]

Your claims that the talk page reached a consensus that Mia Love is not African-American is not supported by what has been said on the talk page. Reading the actual comments there, it seems the trend is that she is both Haitian American and African-American.

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Nick Stone (author) shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection. Sitush (talk) 02:23, 21 March 2014 (UTC)

Affranchi / Creole people[edit]

Hello, Savvyjack23. The name "Haitian Creole people" currently redirects to Haitian people, and that page discusses "The Creoles of Sonya Haiti and Haiti's Creole culture". In your opinion, would it be better for "Haitian Creole people" to redirect to Affranchi? If so, you can change where the redirect points by changing the page name in the square brackets. In other words, #REDIRECT [[Haitian people]] could be changed to #REDIRECT [[Affranchi]]. If that were the case, anyone typing or clicking on Haitian Creole people would go to the Affranchi page. That would be more appropriate if "Haitian Creole people" primarily means Affranchi and not other people in or from Haiti. Cnilep (talk) 08:36, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

Sorry Cnilep I just realized that; I am just trying to figure this out. The problem is that Creoles of Sonya Haiti may not even exist or incorrect terminology is being used. I actually opened a discussion on the Haitian people talk page about it. Back in these times there were "creoles" also known as "gens de couleur", mulatto, or affranchi which were the colonial terminologies used at the time of Haiti. The creole terminology although "politically correct" in reference to the union of European and African ancestry as well, it was never really used the same way as it has in Louisiana as it is usually referred to the language spoken (but then again, still correct). Also, on the creoles disambiguation page it says " from a number of ethnic groups and social classes dating to colonial times in Haiti" which however I believe to be incorrect as this denoted European (colonial) and African (slave) union as I mentioned above. This page needs citations as well as the Haitian people page. Thank you for cleaning up after a few of my mistakes; I am just trying to make some good faith edits here on the subject.

Take a pick[edit]

I noticed your title concern in the "talk page" of "African immigration to Puerto Rico" which is a valid one. I can make the page move. Since you seem to have an interest in the Afro-Latino issues, I will ask you. Which do you think would be a more fitting title; "The history of the Afro-Puerto Rican", which is what it really is or simply "Afro-Puerto Rican"? Tony the Marine (talk) 19:31, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

Tony the Marine thank you for taking the time to write to me and considering this move, while acknowledging my interest in the subject. In this case, I believe that less is more. The beauty about Latin America is that it shares a certain unity, as it was born into a "New World" with a mixture of many proud races and cultures. The simplicity here keeps the reader involved and can easily make the transition between "Afro-Cuban", "Afro-Puerto Rican", "Afro-Brazilian" etc. For Puerto Ricans of African descent, the acknowledgement as a "current" ethnic group is crucial, rather then being looked at as "historical." Looking over the demographics of Puerto Rico, the Afros in Puerto Rico make up a strong number. As a result, I just would think the title would be more fitting as Afro-Puerto Rican. Thanks again! Savvyjack23 (talk) 08:24, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

  • Thank you for your response Savvyjack23, Afro-Puerto Rican it will be. Tony the Marine (talk) 19:35, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

Hello Savvyjack23! While I do appreciate you tagging WikiProject Latin music on several talk pages, I must inform you that music of Haiti is currently not within the project scope (see the project page for more information). Only Spanish and Portuguese-language music from Latin America, the Iberian Peninsula, and the United States are allowed at the moment. In regards, Erick (talk) 17:01, 3 May 2014 (UTC)

A suggestion about Haitian-Americans[edit]

I and a few other editors have created a number of articles on the history of ethnic groups in various cities. I have focused on Baltimore, the user WhisperToMe has done articles for Houston, the user Freechild has focused on Omaha, etc. Given your interests in Haiti and Haitians, I thought that I might suggest you could write similar articles for Haitian-Americans. Some good candidates might include History of the Haitians in Boston, History of the Haitians in Miami, and History of the Haitians in New York City. Of course, you may not be interested, but I thought such an undertaking may interest you. Thanks and have a nice day/night. Solar-Wind (talk) 05:39, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

  • Also, if you know people who can write Haitian Creole, I would love for them to start stubs on the Haitian Creole Wikipedia about things of interest to the Haitian Creole communities in and around New York City and Miami WhisperToMe (talk) 05:45, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

Solar-Wind, I would love to create these articles. Thank you for thinking of me. WhisperToMe, I can try to find out, thanks. Savvyjack23 (talk) 19:04, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

Thank you, I'm glad you like the suggestion. Perhaps another suggestion would be to make an article on French Creole or Haitian Creole in the United States, along the lines of articles on languages in the United States such as French language in the United States. I'm not sure if there is enough information though or perhaps the information should just be in the main French article. French Creole is the third most spoken language in Florida (mostly Haitian Creole, especially in Miami) and there are also speakers in Massachusetts, New York, and a few other states. I know that some government agencies and services in Miami and Boston offer Haitian Creole materials. One source I saw said there are 1 million speakers of Haitian Creole in the USA. So, perhaps there would be enough sources. I don't know, just a thought. Another thing, outside of the USA I know there are a number of Haitian Creole speakers in Canada, especially in the Montreal area, though the article on the French language in Canada doesn't really mention it. I don't mean to dump a bunch on you, ha, just wanted to give you some ideas and as much information as possible. Solar-Wind (talk) 13:29, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

No, not at all, I love the suggestions; keep them coming! I'm gathering some sources up as we speak. Thanks Solar-Wind. Savvyjack23 (talk) 22:48, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

Excellent. I created a category for Haitian Creole language media - Category:Haitian Creole-language media. I gathered as many articles as I could find, but I thought that you might know more and could populate it. Thanks. Solar-Wind (talk) 16:39, 14 May 2014 (UTC)

Concerning Afro Latino[edit]

As the article states, "An Afro-Latin American (also Afro-Latino in the United States) is a Latin American person of native Sub-Saharan African ancestry; " further down in the article it states "The accuracy of statistics reporting on Afro-Latin Americans has been questioned, especially where they are derived from census reports in which the subjects choose their own designation, because in various countries the concept of black ancestry is viewed with differing attitudes." Afro Latino doesn't mean of pure or majority African descend. It means anyone with African ancestry who identifies as such. Many Latin American countries have categories such as mulatto, pardo, and mestizo (meaning either spanish & indigenous or spanish, indigineous & african, such as hugo chavez who called himself either black or mestizo often. Tatertot1112 (talkcontribs) 23:00, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

Tatertot1112, self-identification is very tricky. Hugo Chavez I had left, because he identifies himself as such. The 100 million blacks in Brazil is inaccurate. It is 7.61%, which is more like 17.5 million. Someone who is mixed, is a new breed. This is how history has taken its course since the beginning of time. Do we all not descend from Africa? However I do not see Caucasians identifying themselves as African descent. To agree with you for a second, let's insert pardos and mulattoes. Are you certain that all of these people that you have inserted identify themselves as Afro, and not ones who say they descend from Afro, (all mulattoes say they descend but they might not consider themselves black). You would need to source all these pardos and mulattoes identifying themselves as Afro. If not, it is a much safer bet to insert people of darker completion who actually identify themselves as black or afro. Do these people not deserve to represent afro or African ancestry? When I first came to this page, like it is now, those pictures are not afro or black, they are a mixed people. There should be a page for the America's that separate it, because the CIA census shows otherwise and mentions mixed and blacks separately. Savvyjack23 (talk) 20:22, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

FYI, Tatertot was a sock puppet. Dougweller (talk) 16:01, 27 May 2014 (UTC)

I should have known! There was an issue before, which must have slipped my mind this time around that it could have been as well. Thanks for letting me know Dougweller.

May 2014[edit]

Information icon Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you tried to give Tumba (music genre) a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into another page with a different name. This is known as a "cut-and-paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is legally required for attribution. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page (the tab may be hidden in a dropdown menu for you). This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut-and-paste-move repair holding pen. Thank you. Mikaey, Devil's advocate 23:01, 26 May 2014 (UTC)

Oh shoot Mikaey, I did do that! Sorry about it; I remember trying to move the page and it said something about a "page with this named already exists" and wouldn't allow me to make the move. What should I do next time?! Savvyjack23 (talk) 23:38, 26 May 2014 (UTC)

Hi Savvyjack23,
Depends on the situation. If the page has no significant history other than being a redirect, you can put {{db-move}} at the top of the page, then wait for an administrator to come along and delete it for you. If the page has some more significant history, you may need to list it over at Wikipedia:Requested_moves/Technical_requests, use the proposed deletion process, or put the page up at WP:RfD.
Hope that helps! Thanks, Mikaey, Devil's advocate 04:23, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

It did, thanks Mikaey. Savvyjack23 (talk) 05:25, 31 May 2014 (UTC)

Nick Stone[edit]

If you breach WP:BLP again at Nick Stone (author) then I'll be considering administrative action. Find a source where he self-identifies his nationality - Scottish, English, Haitian - or drop it, please. - Sitush (talk) 12:33, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

Sitush, who's talking about nationality?!?!?! Descent does not mean nationality. Oxford dictionary: "Descent: a person's family origins." Example: ...to be of Scottish descent. [1] I included sources where Stone briefly describes his family origins (descent), speaking as a English national (citizen/countryman/place of birth/jus soli). Oxford dictionary: Nationality: "The status of belonging to a particular nation." [2] I never said, he was a Scottish or Haitian national (citizen), nor did he. Here's a perfect example. "A person of Chinese parents was born in the UK, would make him a English/British citizen/national (his nationality) but of Chinese descent (origin, ethnicity)." I can get 10 administrators right now on this immediately to give their inputs, which would considerably be in favor of these cats. Please, save yourself from looking like a complete moron on this subject, since you cannot distinguish the difference between national and descent. This is why these cats are available and to used for. When somebody says I am half this or half that he isn't talking about citizenship, rather, ethnicity (descent). Nick Stone source I included in the article in March: [3] Savvyjack23 (talk) 18:01, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

You know exactly what I mean. You used "citizenship" on the CFD talk page but you have no idea what citizenship he holds, nor do you know whether he prefers to be English of Haitian descent, Scots of Haitian descent, English of Scots descent, Scot of English descent, Haitian of English descent etc. You can't go making assumptions when it comes to BLPs and you have been told this before. So stop it. It isn't about whether the existence of the categories is valid but about who you put in the categories. I know that we have a source where he says he is half-Haitian/half-Scots descent but that doesn't mean he identifies as primarily English. For example, see Cyrus Pallonji Mistry. - Sitush (talk) 18:24, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

Sitush I'm sorry, are you the official spokesman for Mr. Stone? Cyrus Pallonji Mistry's case is different where he is a citizen/national of one of his parents origins. Had there been another country he grew up in that was not related to Ireland (lets say Japan), he would be Japanese (national citizen, not ethnicity) and then being of Irish and Indian descent (family origins). My argument above is the argument I am sticking with as originally intended. I can provide you a million cases on Wikipedia. Furthermore, it doesn't matter what Mr. Stone prefers; he made it public information and elaborated on his ancestry. Is he an English national? Based on the information we know, this is a yes. Is he of Scottish and Haitian origin by the way of his parents. From what we know this is true as well by the way of his Scottish father and Haitian mother. Does this make him citizens of both countries? NO. Cyrus Pallonji Mistry would be considered an ethnic Englishman because his roots are foreign. I will ask for help on this. Savvyjack23 (talk) 20:19, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

Have you read WP:BLP yet? You still seem to be assuming things and you cannot do that in BLPs, no matter how logical you might think your assumption is. Take it to WP:BLPN if you want. - Sitush (talk) 20:31, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

I've read WP:BLPN; what part of "he made this PUBLIC information in an interview" do you not understand? He doesn't sound like he's shying away from the fact. So are you saying that his family origins might be harmful to his image? I believe you are beginning to sound prejudice. My logic on this is the standard consensus of subjects of this kind. Universally accepted truths make things true for the time being, until we change our thinking. Savvyjack23 (talk) 21:02, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

Where has he made public that he prefers to be considered an English citizen or national? How can he be a Scots person of Haitian descent and an English person of Haitian descent? (Being half of each doesn't make him fully either). Show me the sources and I'll go away but, thus far, you just keep saying that he has declared it. - Sitush (talk) 21:07, 5 August 2014 (UTC)
there is a clear diference between Nationality and Decent as stated clearly above by Savvyjack23 (talk · contribs). @ Savvyjack23 always learn to accept a Good Faith. And refrain from using foul languages on other editors. The use of the word Moroon is unacceptable on wikipedia, on this note, you need to tender an unreserve apology to Sitush. Wikicology (talk) 21:31, 5 August 2014 (UTC)
You, too, seem to be unfortunately missing my point. I do not deny that the man says he is of half-Haitian and half-Scots descent. Neither makes him English. Savvyjack has been trying to categorise him as both English of Haitian descent and Scots of Haitian descent but those are not all of the permutations and we don't know what the guy himself says on the matter. Basically, Savvyjack is trying to hinge everything on "Haitian" because that has been, I think, on of their pet subjects. Just as we do not assume caste or religion is inherited from parents, so we should not do here unless he self-identifies a preference. Some cases are simple, sure, but this one is not. - Sitush (talk) 21:36, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

English of Haitian descent, English of Scottish descent*. I'm sorry for my foul language Sitush, that was very uncharacteristic of me; my emotion have gotten the best of me. Again Sitush, I think you are being prejudice with that statement. It is not a "pet peeve," rather an editor with an interest to improve pages, specifically the most underdeveloped in the Caribbean and so Haiti has been a start. There is nothing wrong with that. Thanks for your input Wikicology. Savvyjack23 (talk) 10:47, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

I'm getting confused myself now! Does he identify as English? IIRC, he spent time in Haiti as a child; he certainly spent time in Scotland (I knew his dad, years ago, although I've never met Nick). Plenty of people are born in one place but do not consider themselves to be of it and, given the present hoo-hah regarding possible independence for Scotland, I'd be very wary of labelling him as English unless he says he is. I think you'd be better with a category called "People of part-Haitian descent" etc, although I still really don't see the point and I know from past discussions at the Village Pump that many others also do not see the point. - Sitush (talk) 10:59, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

Dominica help[edit]

Hi savvyjack... could you kindly please change Dominica's capital to "Roseau" because that's the correct capital of my sweet country Dominica the West Indies. Thank you and much appreciated. It's not Dominica Capital: Dominica — Preceding unsigned comment added by Queenlady12 (talkcontribs) 14:08, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

Sure Queenlady12, but where did you see this? I looked on the Dominica article, it says the capital is Roseau. Savvyjack23 (talk) 15:37, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

French overseas regions flags and logos[edit]

Hello, you've removed regional flags and logo from the infoboxes of Guadeloupe, Martinique, French Guiana. Please note that the infoboxes of other French regions contain their own flags, not the national flag. --— M-le-mot-dit (T) 07:28, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

M-le-mot-dit, I am perfectly aware of that; more than 100%. However, their official flag is le tricolore, not the unofficial ones being used to fill these infoboxes. These are all French dependancies; not independent. Its as if saying these people are no longer a part of France and are no longer French. Until it becomes official, it should not be used to represent these following countries. The talk page is available for further discussion. Savvyjack23 (talk) 07:37, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

Plus, I didn't put the flag on Guadeloupe, I only put the coat of arms because it was already there. In other words, somebody other than myself agrees with me. Savvyjack23 (talk) 07:50, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
