October 2012[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia. However, please do not add promotional material to articles or other Wikipedia pages. Advertising and using Wikipedia as a "soapbox" are against Wikipedia policy and not permitted. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about Wikipedia. Thank you.

See also WP:COI in case it might apply. --Ronz (talk) 16:49, 4 October 2012 (UTC)

Chidi and Chika Nwaogu[edit]

Hello. I redirected Chidi and Chika Nwaogu to LAGbook, since WP:BLP1E discourages biography articles where "reliable sources cover the person only in the context of a single event". So far as I can see, the only sources given in the article are from press coverage that relates primarily to their work on LAGbook. The article would need sources that profile the brothers in other contexts, or discuss their other projects (if any exist) - if no such sources exist, we should just redirect to LAGbook and include a short biographical paragraph there. --McGeddon (talk) 11:56, 5 October 2012 (UTC)

November 2012[edit]

Please do not add promotional material to Wikipedia. While objective prose about beliefs, products or services is acceptable, Wikipedia is not intended to be a vehicle for soapboxing, advertising or promotion. Thank you. --Ronz (talk) 21:20, 20 November 2012 (UTC)

I do not recall adding any promotional material whatsoever on wikipedia. My last edit in which you reverted added a very vital information about the site in the article. Anayo who was noted on the article as refusing to fund the Lagbook project today is an executive on the project as seen on the site's team page. I included this to the article plus the fact that he owns below 1% of Lagbook but your revert removed this fact. I employ you to look into any edit before reverting because you may end up doing the vandalism yourself. --Socialnerd (talk) 09:00, 21 November 2012 (UTC)
Providing information sourced solely by press releases is promotion. --Ronz (talk) 17:33, 21 November 2012 (UTC)
I never sourced a press release. Personally, I removed all press release sources on this article sometime ago. The PR was sourced by the user McGeddon when he was trying to indicate the member size of Lagbook. I recited this pr in the history only after McGeddon had cited it in the lede. Anayo's later participation in Lagbook is vital and I think all readers of this article should know that. -Socialnerd (talk) 20:30, 21 November 2012 (UTC)
You're mistaken: "In a recent press release issued by LAGbook, they say the site have 6,000 daily registrations." [1] So not only are you using press releases, you're highlighting them in the article. --Ronz (talk) 19:52, 21 November 2012 (UTC)
It' clear you didn't get me earlier. I said I wasn't the first person to cite that PR.com press release from Lagbook on wikipedia. The reviewer McGeddon sourced it first. I only resourced it later. So I shouldn't be the one you should accuse of promotion. I include the words "in a press release" in the statement to avoid misleading the reader that the information came from a third party source outside Lagbook.. --Socialnerd (talk) 06:50, 22 November 2012 (UTC)
What's clear is that you simply don't understand that if you continue editing like this and you'll find yourself facing a block. --Ronz (talk) 17:13, 22 November 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Hipingg[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Hipingg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. AllyD (talk) 19:53, 12 January 2013 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Asa asika[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Asa asika has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, this newly created biography of a living person will be deleted unless it has at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within ten days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one.

Deletion discussion about Asa Asika[edit]

Hello, Socialnerd,

I wanted to let you know that there's a discussion about whether Asa Asika should be deleted. Your comments are welcome at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Asa Asika .

If you're new to the process, articles for deletion is a group discussion (not a vote!) that usually lasts seven days. If you need it, there is a guide on how to contribute. Last but not least, you are highly encouraged to continue improving the article; just be sure not to remove the tag about the deletion nomination from the top.

Conflict of interest policy[edit]

Hello, Socialnerd. We welcome your contributions to Wikipedia, but if you are affiliated with some of the people, places or things you have written about on Wikipedia, you may have a conflict of interest or close connection to the subject.

All editors are required to comply with Wikipedia's neutral point of view content policy. People who are very close to a subject often have a distorted view of it, which may cause them to inadvertently edit in ways that make the article either too flattering or too disparaging. People with a close connection to a subject are not absolutely prohibited from editing about that subject, but they need to be especially careful about ensuring their edits are verified by reliable sources and writing with as little bias as possible.

If you are very close to a subject, here are some ways you can reduce the risk of problems:

  • Avoid or exercise great caution when editing or creating articles related to you, your organization, or its competitors, as well as projects and products they are involved with.
  • Be cautious about deletion discussions. Everyone is welcome to provide information about independent sources in deletion discussions, but avoid advocating for deletion of articles about your competitors.
  • Avoid linking to the Wikipedia article or website of your organization in other articles (see Wikipedia:Spam).
  • Exercise great caution so that you do not accidentally breach Wikipedia's content policies.

Please familiarize yourself with relevant content policies and guidelines, especially those pertaining to neutral point of view, verifiability of information, and autobiographies.

For information on how to contribute to Wikipedia when you have a conflict of interest, please see our frequently asked questions for organizations. Thank you. --Ronz (talk) 16:58, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for sharing, but I am not related in any way to the articles I create or edit here on wikipedia. I have created multiple articles that have no relation to each other whatsoever, and that is what I am here on wikipedia to do; contribute to the growth of information here. Thanks though.--Socialnerd (talk) 18:26, 11 April 2013 (UTC)
Then how are you obtaining the private information related to the articles? --Ronz (talk) 17:38, 11 April 2013 (UTC)
They are not private. They are on the internet. I am interested in the LAGbook article like any other article on wikipedia, so I requested google sends to my email any new entry it crawls on the WWW about the keyword 'lagbook'. Any dummy can do that and get uptodate information on lagbook or anything he wants. I never document any personal research, I only document things as seen on reliable independent sources just as it is. --Socialnerd (talk) 18:46, 11 April 2013 (UTC)
Your interest in LAGbook and the twins is most definitely not like your interest in anything else on Wikipedia.
Some of the information you've provided is private and demonstrates a very close relationship with the subject matter. --Ronz (talk) 18:00, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

I don't understand what you mean when you say 'private'. How can a source be private when it is on the WWW? Are articles on Vanguard, The Guardian et al, private? I have met with the people in question and have spoken to them twices at conferences in Ghana. That doesn't 'demonstrate a very close relationship with the subject matter'. --Socialnerd (talk) 16:07, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

As a start, I mean the high-quality photographs that you have provided. They appear to indicate either you have been obtaining them over a period of time from someone that is close to the twins, or you've been taking them yourself. --Ronz (talk) 18:17, 11 April 2013 (UTC)
You don't have to disclose your relationship with them, and I don't want to cause you stress. Unless others want to pursue this, or more information indicating a coi is brought up, maybe we should just put it aside? --Ronz (talk) 18:20, 11 April 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for all you've said. I love attending tech conferences/workshops around west africa and I was privilege to meet them on two occasions where I take some of the photos, and ever since I have been interested in everything they do.--Socialnerd (talk) 18:07, 11 April 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for the explanation. That's a lot of photos you took, you got them to pose, you took the time to remove the backdrops, and I assume you got their permission to use their cover art. --Ronz (talk) 18:41, 11 April 2013 (UTC)
The cover art was dully cited like I will cite any cover art of an Atari game. Nothing biggy.--Socialnerd (talk) 18:07, 12 April 2013 (UTC)
So you don't have their permission? Is it then a copyright violation? --Ronz (talk) 17:09, 12 April 2013 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:Oleku Game.png)[edit]

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

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Hazard-Bot (talk) 04:09, 13 April 2013 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of LAGbook[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article LAGbook has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

If this is indeed notable in any way, it needs a complete rewrite from sources other than those based upon their press releases, which appear unreliable. See talk page.

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.

Speedy deletion nomination of LAGbook[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on LAGbook, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become encyclopedic. Please read the guidelines on spam and Wikipedia:FAQ/Organizations for more information.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. DGG ( talk ) 01:25, 16 April 2013 (UTC)

lagbook, mcgeddon, ronz, etc.[edit]

hello,

i'm not sure if you are still active @ wikipedia, or if you have been driven away.

i am sorry for how badly those users behaved @ the lagbook talkpage, that is NOT how wikipedia works, & they took advantage of your good faith efforts & your inexperience @ wikipedia. a more experienced user would have reported them for such consistently unconstructive behavior and/or sought dispute resolution.

i hope that you will return to wikipedia, & right now there is a deletion debate @

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/LAGbook#.22not_reliable_sources.22

& i hope that you will join the discussion.

Lx 121 (talk) 20:27, 1 July 2013 (UTC)

I'm happy to discuss any of the alleged behavioral problems. To start, the accusations need to be specific. --Ronz (talk) 01:32, 2 July 2013 (UTC)
