iam joe halenbeck[edit]

im confused as to why you didnt allow the page i asked to publish as its a real person with real eye witness accounts as well as proof and videos online not just youtube real intervews with people as well as twitter verification and google and he was in the local papers of his home town in scotland ? but yet hes not given a page. yes u had more to add to the page and update it at a later date but it was a start..

yet just last day i seen some girl on twitter who works at fucking tesco she pays for a modeling shoot and get some pictures taken unpublished and shes on wikipedia ?? i take it cause shes a woman and has tits or the person who wrote it also works with wiki as her bio was her name place of birth and nothing else not a single fact about her or picture just that she was a "model' lol and there are plenty of these empty fake pages yet not a real one like this ?? i can see like any company cheats will let friends on its not what you know its who you know— Preceding unsigned comment added by Iamjoehalenbeck (talkcontribs)

You are perfectly free to submit your draft for submission using the button provided at the top of User:Iamjoehalenbeck/Joe_Halenbeck. However, the draft is unacceptable in its current state because you have not included any citations. A citation is not simply writing "a magazine interview". You have to give enough information for someone to actually find exactly where the content is sourced. That means title, date, author, publication (and if it's on the internet, the web address). And it has to be something independent of the subject. A Google search is not a source. Someone's twitter account is not a source. An interview is not a good source. To put it bluntly, Wikipedia does not care what you have to say about yourself; Wikipedia only cares what other people have said about you in reliable publications (i.e. magazines, newspapers, and similar digital sources - not social media). Ultimately, you should not be writing about yourself on Wikipedia. It rarely works out well. Someguy1221 (talk) 04:31, 22 June 2014 (UTC)

Aldota sockpuppet accounts[edit]

Hi, I can see you added tags to some of the user pages on blocked sockpuppet accounts from Category:Wikipedia sockpuppets of Aldota. However, it would appear that one-by-one throwaway IPs are vandalising these user pages by removing or amending the tags so the account no longer appears in the category.

I have restored all the tags on all the account I have found, however, you may wish to add the userpages to your watchlist to monitor any potential future vandalism or protect the pages, thanks take care. Tanbircdq (talk) 21:25, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

Suspected banned user edits[edit]

Hi Some, User:Klaus_Barner was banned a year ago over inappropriate edits at adequality. Recently an IP has been deleting properly sourced material there, which is the same material the banned user attempted to delete before being banned. Please advise what the appropriate course of action may be. Tkuvho (talk) 07:16, 2 October 2014 (UTC)

Copyright checks when performing AfC reviews[edit]

Hello Someguy1221. This message is part of a mass mailing to people who appear active in reviewing articles for creation submissions. First of all, thank you for taking part in this important work! I'm sorry this message is a form letter – it really was the only way I could think of to covey the issue economically. Of course, this also means that I have not looked to see whether the matter is applicable to you in particular.

The issue is in rather large numbers of copyright violations ("copyvios") making their way through AfC reviews without being detected (even when easy to check, and even when hallmarks of copyvios in the text that should have invited a check, were glaring). A second issue is the correct method of dealing with them when discovered.

If you don't do so already, I'd like to ask for your to help with this problem by taking on the practice of performing a copyvio check as the first step in any AfC review. The most basic method is to simply copy a unique but small portion of text from the draft body and run it through a search engine in quotation marks. Trying this from two different paragraphs is recommended. (If you have any question about whether the text was copied from the draft, rather than the other way around (a "backwards copyvio"), the Wayback Machine is very useful for sussing that out.)

If you do find a copyright violation, please do not decline the draft on that basis. Copyright violations need to be dealt with immediately as they may harm those whose content is being used and expose Wikipedia to potential legal liability. If the draft is substantially a copyvio, and there's no non-infringing version to revert to, please mark the page for speedy deletion right away using {{db-g12|url=URL of source}}. If there is an assertion of permission, please replace the draft article's content with {{subst:copyvio|url=URL of source}}.

Some of the more obvious indicia of a copyvio are use of the first person ("we/our/us..."), phrases like "this site", or apparent artifacts of content written for somewhere else ("top", "go to top", "next page", "click here", use of smartquotes, etc.); inappropriate tone of voice, such as an overly informal tone or a very slanted marketing voice with weasel words; including intellectual property symbols (™,®); and blocks of text being added all at once in a finished form with no misspellings or other errors.

I hope this message finds you well and thanks again you for your efforts in this area. Best regards--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 02:20, 18 November 2014 (UTC).
