Edit Law Society of Ireland page[edit]

Hi again. Sorry to bother you but you mentioned on 10th December that you might be able to help to improve the Law Society of Ireland page? If you are semi-retired would you still have the time or would you prefer to recommend another editor? Thanks. FriendlyuserCP (talk) 17:36, 10 January 2014 (UTC))

Yes, I'm sorry but I don't think I'll be able to help you as I lost interest in the Law Society of Ireland. May I suggest asking someone with more expertise on this subject at Wikipedia:WikiProject Ireland? Cheers! SwisterTwister talk 04:32, 12 January 2014 (UTC)

AfD - London Real TV[edit]

Not sure why there's an AfD happening on the article I've just made. Considering it's my first article in Wikipidea, would you help me navigate me through this and lessen the chances it would be deleted? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Theamotimes (talkcontribs) 19:56, 10 January 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for February 3[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Chuck Loeb, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Hitch, The Untouchables and Jim Hall (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.

Hello SwisterTwister. You recently tagged a page that I have been trying to create as potentially self-promoting. It was the page David Rubenstein (attorney). If you don't mind, could you give me a few suggestions on how to make this article less subject to deletion? I am new to wikipedia, so I am unsure of exactly how many sources/what tone of language I need to be using to avoid these issues. Thank you in advance for your help. Theharrybell (talk) 17:00, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

No problem! I have a page for newcomers here that has some useful information as well as other pages Wikipedia:New contributors' help page. If you're sure you can rewrite the article, you can ask the deleting admin, User:RHaworth, to restore it. Cheers! SwisterTwister talk 03:50, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

Webster quote[edit]

You mention the following quote: Wisdom begins at the end - Daniel Webster. Where and when did he say it? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Nelson4P (talkcontribs) 21:32, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

Well, I don't know about when but you can find it anywhere such as Google Books but I particularly found it at BrainyQuote.com. SwisterTwister talk 03:15, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Regarding speedy deletion nomination on 1oth September:[edit]

Hello SwisterTwister, This is Maruf. I just got a notification for speedy deletion for some reason. I am entirely a new user and is not understanding the cause of this alert. I have already read the general criteria for speedy deletion and spam but it is still not clear to me which words, links or point I need to delete. I had no intention of ambiguous promotion of my company. I am just putting my company's info in Wikipedia and want to be listed by it. If you please see my writing again, be more precise about my faults and suggest me what should I change, it would be so kind of you.

I look forward to your quick reply.

Thanks! Maruf A. (talk) 06:11, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

Regarding speedy deletion nomination for JAFRA Cosmetics[edit]

Hello SwisterTwister, I'm new to Wikipedia and would like a chance to rewrite my article about JAFRA Cosmetics. I did not mean to create the article as promotional material and was only hoping to create a Wikipedia entry for the company. I have revised my references and edited the text to conform to the NPOV. Please let me know if it's possible to restore the page. Thanks! - Eternalstyle (talk) 18:56, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

If you want to recreate the article, you'll need to show it's notable meaning it has received significant third-party coverage from newspapers and magazines that talk about the company in-depth. Also, details such as the mission statement, usage of "we", "our" and "us" may be appropriate on the company's own website but not here as that sounds promotional and suggests ownership. Rather than adding it yourself, consider using Wikipedia:Articles for creation where a user such as myself can review it beforehand. Cheers! SwisterTwister talk 04:48, 17 September 2014 (UTC)

Back in September[edit]

You asked me about the removal of some material you added to Tajja Isen. In general I don't really like too much family background here except for figures of historical importance, but the exception is when it's relevant, but the musical family background of a musician is relevant. I'm not sure the no. of siblings etc. But the amount you had there is usually within the amount that is always OK. DGG ( talk ) 18:47, 15 December 2014 (UTC)

Re Edith Hirsch[edit]

Hi--yes, I believe notability is shown. An obituary in the NY Times, like one of my main sources, has been shown in a few AfDs to be a pretty good indicator of notability. Also, the multiple mentions in RS newspapers count, I think. But thanks for getting back to me so quickly! Origamite 05:44, 29 March 2015 (UTC)

WP:NPEOPLE: Multiple independent sources may be combined to demonstrate notability, which I did somewhat in the "Published" section. However, if you don't think that's right, it's my first article, which is why I put it up at AfC, even after 3,000 edits. Origamite 05:47, 29 March 2015 (UTC)
I highly agree but I don't see much of a solid article with that information. If she had participated in a highly reported incident or other news-worthy event or won any notable awards, that would be something different. Cheers! SwisterTwister talk 05:55, 29 March 2015 (UTC)

IVANCARDOSO (talk) 12:05, 29 March 2015 (UTC)Hello SwisterTwister, thanks for your time. I didn´t understand the last part of the message you left me after the revision of the page I´ve created callled The Berimbot. The part I didn´t understand is - this article would be better mentioned under the lab's article or something else relevant. What do you mean by that? This is my first article and everything here is new to me. Thanks a lot.

Request on 16:47:43, 29 March 2015 for assistance on AfC submission by 137aes[edit]


I guess I'm confused regarding my references. The references listed are reputable in the virtual reality world, just like Road & Track would be for cars. I agree that the article could be longer. As far as the significance of the Infinadeck, I assume you may not be familiar with locomotion in the virtual world. There are two products currently out there, e.g. the Virtuix Omni, but none are mechanical. That is what makes the Infinadeck notable. Any direction would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

There are many robots with a profile very similar or equal to the Berimbot, could you please advise what specific informations should I collect to improve the notability of my project? This is my first profile and everything is new to me. I thank you in advance.

Regarding New Article "Yasmina" by Yasmina Fan[edit]

Hello Swister twister,thanks for reviewing my article. I reviewed Criteria for Musicians Notability on this link https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Notability_(music) Parts which I think are enough for Notability. -point number 4 in Notability was "Has received non-trivial coverage in independent reliable sources of an international concert tour, or a national concert tour in at least one sovereign country". I have added references that mentioned Yasmina's participation in many national concerts in Egypt. -point number 6 was " is a musician who has been a reasonably prominent member of two or more independently notable ensembles " I have added references that mentioned Yasmina has been a member of 2 known Ensembles in Egypt.-point number 8 is "Has won or been nominated for a major music award" Yasmina received a music award from Egyptian Minister of Culture,is this prize not major enough? -point number 9 was "Has won or placed in a major music competition." Yasmina has participated in Arabs got talent Competition , while this competition is not only for musicians , its probably the biggest "Got Talent" spin off as it includes participants from 22 countries , and Yasmina was the only singer or musician to reach the final , effectively beating all others including Nadia Azzi who already has a wikipedia page. -point number 10 was "Has performed music for a work of media that is notable, e.g., a theme for a network television show, performance in a television show" I put link to her performances in 2 TV shows (She performed 3 songs in each show). Please give me feedback are all these points not enough for Notability ? Thanks.

Thanks for your time Link for edited article draft : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:Yasmina

Request on 16:34:59, 4 April 2015 for assistance on AfC submission by Rtwhite[edit]


Thanks for your comments.

As far as I can see Friday Brown does meets the music 'notability' requirements of Wikipedia by winning international singing competitions and her television work: I’ve also indicated the period over which she was active. I used the phrase 'Friday Brown is' because she's still alive, rather than active. I suppose saying 'popular music singer-songwriter' could be confusing, but that was the arena in which she worked, popular music. It wasn’t intended to indicate her degree of popularity.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Many thanks,

Hello SwisterTwister,

I am trying to figure out why this would be marked for deletion. In all things new such as the speed for technology today we will see changes in traditional concepts and new ones evolving.

The internet-of-things will impact and change business models and one of the most important going forward will be protecting digital data assets. Traditional recordkeeping and library, archive methodologies for 'preservation' do not cater and will not be suitable for digital data asset management. Whilst the concept and term of digital perpetuation is only just evolving one could same the same for a lot of new terms. Why is it that you have such a problem with this word and its objective for differentiation and clarification.

Even if you delete this the term will not go away. It is already out there in publication on professional website libraries and will be available in the Queensland archives shortly. Therefore whilst it is not prominent now like all new evolutions so is there the introduction to new terms of reference it takes time and one would had thought that the wikipedia was a progressive environment and keen to be seen to staying in touch technology and the changing global environment.

Thank you for your time. Linda Shave — Preceding unsigned comment added by 58.173.192.215 (talk) 07:38, 3 May 2015 (UTC)

Regarding deletion of Al Wathba[edit]

Hello, How are you ? First of all thanku for reviewing my 1st wiki post.

You nominated my post to be deleted as there is some "lawsuit" filed against it. I reviewed the article and i couldn't able to find anything against al wathba. I have copied Conclusion of the post for the reference "This case is an example of the difficulties that can arise in the absence of clear drafting. while courts are always keen to give effect to the intentions of the parties to a freely negotiated contract, this is only possible where those intentions are made plain. Those clauses that are commonly considered ‘boilerplate’ (such as the ‘law and jurisdiction’ clause), are of essential importance when disputes arise and inserting plain, unambiguous wording must not be overlooked at the drafting stage."[1]

The Egyptian ship owner want to seek the justice outside the UAE law & order and It is clearly stated in all insurance documents that all the law and order are subjected to UAE court only.

And this article is helping the user that everybody should read and agree all the terms and conditions before going for any insurance.

This type of small court case for such a big insurance company is not a big issues.

Please review the article and advise me corrections so that newbies like me will also become contributor to wiki.
