I have updated the copy for the GetSmarter Wikipedia entry. Please review it and let me know if the page can be 'undeleted', to contain this encyclopedic entry, that has no reference to any advertising in it.

Talk:Larry Centers/GA1[edit]

Secret, it looks like this is about to be failed since you haven't returned to address the issues as promised. You might still have time if you do so right away. BlueMoonset (talk) 19:01, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of Larry Centers[edit]

The article Larry Centers you nominated as a good article has failed Symbol unsupport vote.svg; see Talk:Larry Centers for reasons why the nomination failed. If or when these points have been taken care of, you may apply for a new nomination of the article. Message delivered by Legobot, on behalf of TParis -- TParis (talk) 23:02, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

Helen Keller Day[edit]

Hi! I've noticed that on 3 July 2014 you deleted a page "Helen Keller Day" as WP:G5 (creation by blocked user) [1]. I've also noticed that the WP:G5 policy says that pages may be deleted if they are created by "blocked users in violation of their ban or block, and which have no substantial edits by others". Now, this article was about an obviously notable topic (a US federal holiday), and it was created on or before 16 May 2013 [2]. Now, I'm wandering how is it possible that an article on such a notable topic was posted for more than a year, and it did not have any substantial edits by others except the original creator? I don't say that it's impossible, but I'd like to check that out. If I'm wrong, please excuse me, and do not take this as a criticism of your work. Vanjagenije (talk) 22:47, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

RfA[edit]

Hi. I'm sorry to have lost your support vote. I wonder if you might expand on what I was "flip-floppy" about in my responses. AFAIK, there was just the one question where I gave an off-the-cuff answer that turned out to be wrong. When I found that out, I admitted that I shouldn't have answered and that I was wrong.

If you could tell me which answers were shocking and made you think I was clueless (something I don't get called much), perhaps I can clarify or learn something. Here would be best – I've barred myself from any further rebuttal-level postings at the RfA since they are now automatically being viewed in the wrong light. —[AlanM1(talk)]— 08:24, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

I'd like to clarify that you shouldn't feel obligated to answer, and I understand if you don't. I'm sincerely not trying to pick fights or stir up trouble. Despite the way my rebuttals are being viewed, I do want to know when I'm wrong (or misunderstood to be). —[AlanM1(talk)]— 21:43, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

Deletion review for Article Madison McKinley[edit]

An editor has asked for a deletion review of Madison McKinley. Because you closed the deletion discussion for this page, you might want to participate in the deletion review. Mycat99 (talk) 12:06, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

Hey[edit]

Secret, I'm actively editing again after a greatly reduced participation rate over the last year, and I've noticed your handiwork around AfD and RfA.

County Theater Page[edit]

Hello,

I would like you to un-delete the County Theater page that I created earlier today. As I explained in the Talk section (also now deleted) and the "contest deletion" sectiohn, I represent the organization that runs the County, which is also the copyright holder for the information used in the page. I am happy to jump through the crazy hoops set up by Wikipedia (including "donation" of the copyright, which I have already e-mailed to the permissions@wikimedia e-mail address), but I cannot do so with a deleted page.

Thank you, Allison Tyra RenewTheaters (talk) 17:24, 27 August 2014 (UTC)RenewTheaters

Once I get a OTRS ticket number showing the permission to use the text, I might be able to restore the article. But there is several issues, especially conflict of interest, and your username which represents the group and needs to be changed. Please read that guideline. Secret account 17:28, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Given that I was only posting verifiable facts (not opinions) from a respected organization, I do not see how a reasonable person could claim conflict of interest. Part of my job is to make sure that information about the theater is easily accessible via the Internet - it is odd that a popular, 76-year-old historic community landmark does not already have a page.

WikiCup 2014 August newsletter[edit]

The final of the 2014 WikiCup begins in a few short minutes! Our eight finalists are listed below, along with their placement in Round 4:

  1. Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions), a WikiCup newcomer, finished top of Pool A and was the round's highest scorer. Godot is a featured picture specialist, claiming large numbers of points due to high-quality scans of historical documents, especially banknotes.
  2. Scotland Casliber (submissions) is a WikiCup veteran, having been a finalist every year since 2010. In the semi-final, he was Pool B's highest scorer. Cas's points primarily come from articles on the natural sciences.
  3. Nepal Czar (submissions) was Pool A's runner-up. Czar's points come mostly from content related to independent video games, including both articles and topics.
  4. Oh, better far to live and die / Under the brave black flag I fly... Adam Cuerden (submissions) was Pool B's runner-up. Another featured picture specialist, many of Adam's points come from the restoration of historical media. He has been a WikiCup finalist twice before.
  5. Wales Cwmhiraeth (submissions) won the WikiCup in 2012 and 2013, and enters this final as the first wildcard. She focuses on biology-related articles, and has worked on several high-importance articles.
  6. Florida 12george1 (submissions) is the second wildcard. George's points come primarily from meteorology-related articles. This year and last year, George was the first person in the competition to score.
  7. Colorado Sturmvogel 66 (submissions), the third wildcard, was the 2010 champion and a finalist last year. His writes mostly on military history, especially naval history.
  8. Canada Bloom6132 (submissions), the fourth and final wildcard, has participated in previous WikiCups, but not reached any finals. Bloom's points are mostly thanks to did you knows, featured lists and good articles related to sport and national symbols.

We say goodbye to this year's semi-finalists. Herm Matty.007 (submissions), Ohio ThaddeusB (submissions), United States WikiRedactor (submissions), Idaho Figureskatingfan (submissions), Greece Yellow Evan (submissions), Portugal Prism (submissions) and Bartošovice v Orlických horách Cloudz679 (submissions) have all performed well to reach this stage of the competition, and we hope they will all be joining us again next year.

There are two upcoming competitions unrelated to the WikiCup which may be of interest to those who receive this newsletter. The Stub Contest will run through September, and revolves around expanding stub articles, especially high-importance or old stubs. In addition, a proposal has been made for a new competition, the GA Cup, which the organisers plan to run next year. This competition is based on the WikiCup and aims to reduce the good article review backlog.

There is now a thread for brainstorming on how next year's WikiCup competition should work. Please come along and share your thoughts- What works? What doesn't work? What needs changing? Signups for next year's competition will be open soon; we will be in touch. If, at this stage of the competition, you are keen to help the with the WikiCup, please do what you can to participate in review processes. Our finalists will find things much easier if the backlogs at good article candidates, featured article candidates, featured picture candidates and the rest are kept at a minimum. As ever, questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck!

Cornelius, Inc.[edit]

I had proded this article. With agreement from the creating editor, you moved it to Draft:Cornelius, Inc. The editor seems to feel the article is now ready and has recreated the article via copy-paste and has made edits since then. Does this call for a history merge? - SummerPhD (talk) 00:58, 6 September 2014 (UTC)

Article still not ready, it needs to go through the WP:AFC process, so I deleted it and salted it so he can do that. Thanks Secret account 04:03, 6 September 2014 (UTC)

Harold Terry article[edit]

It is unclear where I should place this message. I submitted it on your user page, and "Dustin V.S." deleted it.

Re Harold Terry article, you are mistaken about the Bill Keith book, saying it is self-published. It is published by Pelican Publishing Company of Gretna: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pelican_Publishing_Company; the Terry article has many sources that were ignored by the reviewers, and the final copy was completed only in the two days. I am seeking to have this article returned to the board. Billy Hathorn (talk) 18:36, 18 October 2014 (UTC)

Too harsh?[edit]

Don't you think that banning DirectKnowledge Indefinitely is too harsh? Yes, they wrote an article which I tagged for deletion as Spam (and was deleted as such), but that's all they've done and there's no indication (yet at least) that they are a 'repeat offender'. Does that warrant a block at all, let alone a permanent one? Wittylama 20:28, 18 October 2014 (UTC)

I don't block spammers right away for one offense unless the spam is so blatant that they are extremely unlikely to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia. Reading his comments in the AFD and the article, its clear he's only here for self-promotion thus the block. Secret account 03:04, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

Could I please request a reversal of the decision to delete this wikipedia page? Will be taking it to deletion review and would appreciate any input. Tokenskeptic (talk) 00:42, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

I'm not restoring the page, the article was deleted without a keep rationale and three delete rationales, so there was consensus. A deletion review will likely get rejected unless you prove this guy meets our general notability guidelines with reliable, independent sources, which you didn't do in the AFD.

Your protecting Oscar Taveras page[edit]

Try performing a modicum of research before you kneejerk lock a page and revert "vandalism." His agent confirmed his death before any of the edits were made to the page, and it's a sign of incompetence when you lock a page one minute and say "ESPN confirmed the death" the next minute. The number of (personal attack removed) who'd rather revert an edit than spend 5 seconds searching for the info themselves is absurd. 2001:558:6027:7F:5424:D5BB:EDC2:E135 (talk) 11:05, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

Flag of Scotland.svg

The 2014 WikiCup champion is Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions), who flew the flag of the Smithsonian Institution. This was Godot13's first WikiCup competition and, over the 10 months of the competition, he has produced (among other contributions) two featured lists and an incredible 292 featured pictures, including architectural photographs and scans of historical documents. Wales Cwmhiraeth (submissions), 2012 and 2013 WikiCup champion, came in second, having written a large number of biology-related articles. Scotland Casliber (submissions), WikiCup finalist every year since 2010, finished in third.

A full list of our prize-winners follows:

Congratulations to everyone who has been successful in this year's WikiCup, whether you made it to the final rounds or not, and a particular congratulations to the newcomers to the WikiCup who have participated this year. We warmly invite all of you to sign up for next year's competition. Discussions and polls concerning potential rules changes are also open, and all are welcome to participate.

Ian Thomson[edit]

Hi. I'd like you to consider nominating Ian.thomson for adminship. My nomination wouldn't be of any help to Ian but your word carries weight here. He's not opposed to being nominated but won't seek it himself. TParis raised the issue with him a year ago. I've been watching Ian coolly deal with the vandals and crazies that haunt Wikipedia, like an admin would. Perhaps he ought to have a free t-shirt and teh bits to cut out the middle-man.

Since February 2012 he's voted with the ultimate consensus 17 of 19 times at AfD/MfD. He's created 12 articles, only ten of which survive. He was blocked once in 2011. I'll defer to your expert judgement on his readiness. Chris Troutman (talk) 16:09, 12 November 2014 (UTC)

Tarek Najm's Profile on Wikipedia[edit]

Dear Secret - I am the assistant of Tarek Najm. By his request, I am requesting a restoration of his profile page on Wikipedia. My colleagues made mistakes to add irrelevant references on his page, however, we are agree to delete those references but not the whole page. Tarek wants me to contact you to restore his page which is very important for his reputation and business. Please reconsider your decision. Thank you so much. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Faylinesong (talkcontribs) 23:01, 12 November 2014

Candidacy[edit]

I think you meant "reluctant" to run not "redundant" to run. John Carter (talk) 19:51, 16 November 2014 (UTC)

Possibly both! But kudos for running (to all candidates). All the best: Rich Farmbrough23:03, 16 November 2014 (UTC).
I was going to leave it at that, since I didn't want to repeat what I said at AGK's talk page. But since he has blanked my comment, a typical AGK move, I will say that in my opinion you should not bother too much about what one, perhaps rather acerbic, editor thinks of your judgement. All the best: Rich Farmbrough23:47, 16 November 2014 (UTC).
I'm not gonna bother with AGK and [4] is a dick move. Secret account 23:57, 16 November 2014 (UTC)

I was reporting a bug in the software, for which you blocked me[edit]

I reject your apology. You need to read WP:BITE. It is impossible to read that ANI discussion and come to the conclusion that I needed to be blocked. I was trying to report a bug in the software (and that bug report has been gratefully received) and noticed that the IP I was using was blocked for a long time and with account creation blocked. So I asked for advice about those blocks. Notice that I did not use the name of the blocking admin; notice that I did not claim the admin was abusin their tools; notice that I did not drag it out when I was told that the blocks were correct (but the wrong type of block). Thus I created two valid bug-reports that helped the project. You? You incorrectly blocked a good faith editor and you still think your oock was merely a minor error and that I did something that deserved blocking. Your non-apology is worse than nothing. It would be much better if you had not bothered apologising. (Finally no-one has explained how the first blocking admin had no way for me to leave a message on their talk page) Gustavail (talk) 10:23, 17 November 2014 (UTC)

I was at work and I thought you were the proxy editor. I misread the complain completely and I feel very sorry for it. Secret account 15:03, 17 November 2014 (UTC)

Florida Basketball Association[edit]

I see you nominated Florida Basketball Association for speedy deletion and deleted the 5 teams pages without this. How come this was done? Perhaps we could have merged all 6 articles into one in order to make one good article rather than 6 subpar. - Galatz (talk) 15:37, 17 November 2014 (UTC)

Arbcom's not for everyone. In fact, there are few that it does suit. I'm impressed that you're self aware enough to spot that it might not be for you. I wish I was. WormTT(talk) 15:39, 18 November 2014 (UTC)
  • Lot of wisdom in all this. Dennis - 16:17, 18 November 2014 (UTC)
    • Thanks, it was tough to withdraw, despite a sub-optimal candidate field. I wasn't worried about AGK comments, (it was health biased) but I fucked up by blocking a new editor because I was stressed out at work and didn't read the circumstances properly. I realized I still can't separate my personal life and health with Wikipedia and I wouldn't elect myself to that position. Dennis or Worm, I hope you guys decide to run as this field is the weakest I have ever seen and I'm worried we wouldn't get enough seats to fill the position. I'll probably take a job as an ArbCom clerk and participate more in OTRS instead. Thanks Secret account 17:01, 18 November 2014 (UTC)
A clerk could definitely be used, considering one of the active clerks is running now. Health and other factors can be a real bitch, but I hope that if you do some clerking you find that you are probably still a better candidate than many of those who haven't withdrawn.

@Chillum: I did it on purpose, I plan to finish the RFA tonight. I did a quick work write-up. Secret account 22:41, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

Good to know. The candidate looks promising and I look forward to participating. Chillum 22:43, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

Summary deletion of List of chronologies of works of fiction[edit]

@Secret: Hi Administrator, may I please ask you to reconsider and have List of chronologies of works of fiction undeleted? This page was to be the main page of my category which I have proposed to rename Chronologies of works of fiction. Are you advocating that Wikipedia should not have a page (and a category) that groups together articles concerning timelines of artistic works of fiction ? May I please further invite you to view not only the discussion on the proposed deletion of Category:Chronology of Fictional Works (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Categories_for_discussion/Log/2014_November_25#Category:Chronology_of_Fictional_Works), but also the very IMPORTANT prior discussion concerning the proposal to rename Category:Fictional timelines to Category:Chronology of Fictional Works (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Categories_for_discussion/Log/2014_November_21), which should clarify why this new category (and page) is sorely needed on Wikipedia, so as to DIFFERENTIATE between in-world fictional timelines, and between timelines of artistic works of fiction.

I'm not restoring, it was a list of random links which had nothing to do with each other and qualified for speedy deletion as A1/A3, no content/explanation for the use of this list. I can't understand your explanation and it seems like it violates WP:NOT Secret account 22:44, 25 November 2014 (UTC)

AfD close[edit]

Hi Secret. I question your close of Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Killing of Yehoshua Weisbrod. I do not believe it interpreted consensus in that discussion correctly. Perhaps you may wish to re-open it for further comment? Or, alternatively, reconsider the close? Best. --Epeefleche (talk) 23:54, 25 November 2014 (UTC)

Secret, I am here on the same errand as Epeefleche The event was covered widely in international media, had an impact described and sourced in the article on ensuing political, continued to be discussed in later years due to the notoriety of the perpetrator (as was documented in the article), raised a small diplomatic brouhaha due to violation of the terms of the Oslo Accords, and, in short, I hope that you will reconsider.ShulMaven (talk) 02:13, 26 November 2014 (UTC)

name change?[edit]

Consider removing the "account" part in your signature. Having a secret account may be sockpuppetry and, therefore, usually not permitted. If your name is "secret", just leave it at that.

Analogies always are imperfect but consider this. What if your user name "I Like". Ok. But adding a signature line "I Like _ to kill and torture" would be wrong even if the user name is ok.

I have written to you in case you haven't thought of it. Have a nice day! Eating Glass Is Bad (talk) 16:13, 26 November 2014 (UTC)

This request is frivolous. Please do not post on this page again. Newyorkbrad (talk) 00:30, 27 November 2014 (UTC)
