Einstein[edit]

Over at Einstein's political views, if you check the article's edit history, the editing left references orphaned at least twice. I am not sure exactly what happened, and I will take a look later. Please try to be careful when editing, and be aware of references and citations. Thanks. --- Steve Quinn (talk) 06:11, 9 August 2013 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Barack Obama on mass surveillance, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Washington (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Reviewing mistake on Attack on Titan?[edit]

I believe that you made a mistake accepting this change https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Attack_on_Titan&diff=611768085&oldid=611637944 on Attack on Titan. The change makes the sentence unclear and grammatically incorrect. The error has since been fixed by an IP, but needs acceptance. Do you think that you could accept it? Thanks Piguy101 (talk) 20:02, 6 June 2014 (UTC)

I think you may have the wrong reviewer.

Hi Spirit of Eagle, I have granted rollback rights to your account in accordance with your request. Please be aware that rollback should be used to revert vandalism, spam and blatantly unconstructive edits; using it to revert any other type of edit - such as by revert-warring or reverting edits you disagree with - can lead to it being removed from your account...sometimes without any warning, as some admins do not give a warning if they become aware of any misuse. If you think an edit should require a reason for reverting, use a manual edit summary instead of using the rollback tool. For practice, you may wish to review Wikipedia:New admin school/Rollback.

There is no copyivio whatsoever as I have fist consulted the source, then rephrased the content and then that content I've translated into English. The only place where I translated directly was that excretion from the book which I'm giving OK to be removed, but if you agree it could stay.

Thanks for Your review[edit]

Hi Spirit of Eagle! Thanks a lot - i would like to say a few things here, though. I presume you have enough insight. 1. i created the article in my sandbox and had it submitted for review just this morning...the answer was, it might take a month....too long... so decided to create it, but with the "city" in brackets. it worked, as we can see. Initially, i wanted it without brackets, but the creation wizard always redirected to the existing sihanoukville article, which never was clearly defined (city or province). I had it requested for a move to "sihanoukville province" a few days ago, but i have no idea what is going to happen with it. I went through the entire content of the old article around a month ago and decided to make a distinct "sihanoukville province" article out of it. There is still a lot of re-editing and cleaning left. I am going to do it, as soon as it has been moved...whenever this is. I guess, this is ok? 2. There are still a couple of mysteries left for me to figure out, e.g. these source templates - you can see there is some sort of bug on the new article...i will go into it soon. In case i have problems, could i get your or anyone's help? 3. I am not a native English speaker - there are certainly lots of mistakes in the text, although i do my best...i - again - am very grateful for any reviews and help. 4. Cambodia is not precisely the country, that has tons of quality sources. I am working on most of Cambodia's islands articles now - verifiable contents on these topics is very hard to come by.... Anyhow, as i live in Sihanoukville for many years, i speak respectable Khmer and have as a result accumulated knowledge from local people. Is there anything, we can do with that.....

Thanks a lot for your attention and All The best!!! Wikirictor (talk) 07:11, 9 October 2014 (UTC)

1. I see no problem with this. I believe the move would be the best decision, since many of the other articles on Cambodian providences contain the word “province” in the title. Until any decision is made, the title of the city of Sihanoukville is fine. Also, as the city and province are not the same entity, both should get clearly defined articles.

2. I’m really not that good with templates. A user at Wikipedia:WikiProject Templates would probably be more help.

3. I’ll look over the article some more this weekend. I can probably help with wording and whatnot.

4. You can use primary sources such as a historical journal or a written first-hand account of the islands, as long as you do not draw any conclusions from them and only post straight-forward facts that can be verified by anyone with access to the source. However, you can’t include personal knowledge, because that would be original research.

I hope that this is helpful, and I’ll probably be posting a few notes here after I do a more thorough clean-up of the Sihanoukville (city) article. Please feel free to post any follow-up questions during the meantime. Spirit of Eagle (talk) 21:53, 9 October 2014 (UTC)

I've been working on cleaning up the article, and I've made many minor corrections here and there. I noticed that several sections, most notably the beach section, read a bit like a travel guide. The language in these sections is rather promotional, and should be edited so it is a neutral description of the beaches given in context of the city. For example "Aloha beach is a welcoming environment with clean sands, sparkling waters and plenty of facilities" is overly promotional while "Aloha beach is one of the largest beaches in the city, and is the location of several tourist resorts" is more encyclopedic. Spirit of Eagle (talk) 01:43, 11 October 2014 (UTC)

Awesome

1.Thanks for your support!!!
Your edits are exactly, what it needed - distinct and unassuming - it is very hard to remain un-biased, esp. when you "protest" against smth. and think this is just fine...as in the traffic section. There is quite some text, which i have in one way or another - from my own site - kohrong-sanloem.com - it has lots of info - in particular the islands. it is -partly - the source of the island section.....you are right - tone, expression and evaluation need constraint at WP
anyhow there remain plenty of stylistic embarrassments,
which are all the more present on the province article as i initially just rewrote a core of text which was truly a mess of simple statements...

2. I have made a translation yesterday...the article had been abandoned - of course - a scientific article - no easy stuff...anyhow - i liked it, because it was on archaeology... - no danger of bias here - but a real challenge to accuracy. i haven't inserted any refs,yet - ain;t sure, whether they are required at all in a translation - and they lead - mostly - to German sources. i had requested native speaker support on the talk page - but so far - nobody. they also have offered a machine translation (probably google translate) to work with - i haven't looked in it, though....

Stats
I saw that you did a few alterations with the staistcs-refs. I still have get more into it. Still, though - there are almost no stats at all on the city - only the province - the 2008 census has stats on urban issues, but these are just general numbers, valid for all urban centers. For example - i never ever found a source with the area of the city - there a hundreds of sites who claim to know - they have, of course, like anyone else the readings of the province - and not even aware of that fact...
mhmmm
well i added up the size of the communities and the port and compared the result with google map measurement tool ...not very subtle but it produced an approximate number - as no one else has anything better - this seems to be the yardstick....somehow
Wikirictor (talk) 21:49, 11 October 2014 (UTC)

To answer your question previous question, translations should be cited. Also, make sure the translation is paraphrased to avoid copyright issues. As for the population, adding up the population for the communities and port is a valid way to get the total population. Just make sure that all of the population statistics were collected during the same year and that the combined population of these places make up 100% of the cities population. Also, I'll check to see if I can find the population of the city. I'll post back if I find anything. Spirit of Eagle (talk) 04:05, 12 October 2014 (UTC)
This source says the population is a little over 250,000 people, although this number seems to vary somewhat from source to source. I hope this is useful. Spirit of Eagle (talk) 04:13, 12 October 2014 (UTC)


Details

Hi! I was actually talking about the area - the size of the land, anyhow- don't worry about these details. Important is:."..is a valid way to get the total... " thanks for your help!!!

Hi, noticed you were looking at the 'Qaster' page. I'm trying to cleanup the page and make it work for existing on Wikipedia. Right now there are many pages linking to it. There is citable information/sources that provide neutral information on the company. What else can be done to remove the two boxes at the top of the page?

Your article is currently nominated for deletion, so it will be removed from Wikipedia unless it meets notability requirements. The best way to do that (and to save your article) is by finding reliable sources independent of Qaster that talk about the website in depth. Also, what is your relationship to the website? If you are associated with it in any significant way, then there may be conflict of interest issues. Basically, its generally frowned upon for people to write articles about things they have created. If you are associated with the website, then at this point it would be best to declare this on the articles talk page. Spirit of Eagle (talk) 03:35, 20 October 2014 (UTC)

!

I am not associated with Qaster and did not create it. I do research within the startup tech world and am working on putting a blog together where I report about emerging startups. There's a few other companies that I have been working on wikipedia entries for. I think it's important for them to have Wikipedia pages if they'll be included in the startup blog. There's around 6 sources right now supporting content in the Qaster wikipedia article. Would it be better to add in more content inside the article related to Qaster or add in more citation sources from the internet which report on its services? Just trying to learn and be cooperative here and hope you can help.. thank you. Michaelgr43 (talk) 02:26, 22 October 2014 (UTC)

First, I would go into Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Qaster and make an argument about why you believe the page should be saved. You've made comments, but you should also attempt to justify the existence of the article, respond to the delete vote already in place and clarify your connection (or lack thereof) to Qaster. The most effective arguments will follow the criteria laid out in WP:GNG. As for sourcing, I would add the strongest sources you have into the article. Most of the sources you have appear borderline at best, so an article from a mainstream news website such as Forbes would do a lot to improve the article and increase the odds of it being saved. I would expand the article with content, but I would focus on sourcing first. I hope this helps. Spirit of Eagle (talk) [[00:56, 23 October 2014 (UTC)

Hi Spirit! Thanks a lot for your help! All the best!!! Wikirictor (talk) 09:49, 1 November 2014 (UTC)




BTW - Our Sihanoukville (city) article does not show up in Google Search, even when you type: Sihanoukville (city). You have any idea....Thanks Wikirictor (talk) 10:57, 1 November 2014 (UTC)

I'm not really sure. I couldn't find the Wikipedia article from a Google search, but it was one of the first results in a Yahoo search [2]. Perhaps its just the way Google conducts searches. Spirit of Eagle (talk) 03:38, 2 November 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Cabaret (Justin Timberlake song)[edit]

Could this perhaps be relisted if not redirected to album article? The "keep" voters all overlooked the notability criteria for songs into account, which says Coverage of a song within the context of an album review does not establish notability. If the only coverage of a song occurs in the context of reviews of the album on which it appears, that material should be contained in the album article and an independent article about the song should not be created. and also has a note saying The "subject" of a work means non-trivial treatment and excludes mere mention of the song/single, its musician/band or of its publication, price listings and other nonsubstantive detail treatment. The last vote was close, but neglected to take into account how the non-album review sources only mention subject in brief. Snuggums (talk / edits) 01:24, 7 November 2014 (UTC)

I stand by my decision to close the AfD as keep. I closed the AfD as keep because there was a clear consensus to keep the article and legitimate justification was given. (Specifically, it was argued that the song had charted, it had a few sources that weren't album reviews and that it was a legitimate content fork). If you disagree, you can ask an admin to review my decision per WP:NACD, but I felt that this was a pretty non-controversial keep. Spirit of Eagle (talk) 04:12, 7 November 2014 (UTC)
I realize they all shared the same opinion, but their justifications did not meet up to inclusion criteria (and thus weren't very convincing). Snuggums (talk / edits) 04:36, 7 November 2014 (UTC)
I didn't feel that this was the strongest keep, but there wasn't any support for a redirect despite multiple comments and some of the arguments given for a keep had some validity to them. Perhaps we could get a third party to look this over if you disagree with my assessment.Spirit of Eagle (talk) 05:10, 7 November 2014 (UTC)
I see what you mean, and have listed the discussion at DRV. Snuggums (talk / edits) 05:13, 7 November 2014 (UTC)
