RE: Kalika Yap article for deletion[edit]

Hi Tomstar81,

I created the wiki entry on Kalika Yap, and I noticed you have nominated the article on Kalika Yap for possible deletion and are on the fence about notability. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Kalika_Yap

Thank you for this comment. Based on the rewrite and new notability added to the article, shown below, would you consider removing the deletion tag from the wiki entry? I appreciate your contribution to wikipedia and look forward to discussing further if need be.

Kalika Yap has just been featured as part of global fashion brand BCBG's New Guard campaign featuring "the county's most interesting women." Please see https://vimeo.com/120082676 and http://www.bcbg.com/Online-Magazine-February-2015/magazine-2015-02,default,pg.html (pages 30-35) out this month as reference. Kalika is featured along with Kiva founder Jessica Jackley (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jessica_Jackley), TechCrunch co-editor Alexia Tsotsis (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexia_Tsotsis), and CBS journalist Alison Harmelin (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alison_Harmelin).

Re:(Deletion of wiki page AK Ikwuakor)[edit]

Greetings TomStar81,

I am sure you are quite busy, but I received this message from you and would like to restore this page.

"This page has been deleted. The deletion and move log for the page are provided below for reference.

  • 06:42, 19 February 2015 TomStar81 (talk | contribs) deleted page AK Ikwuakor (G5: Creation by a banned or blocked user (Johngalea24) in violation of ban or block)"

If you are unable to restore the page, may I at least receive the information in the Wikipedia article? I was not the editor and I am trying to contact the editor to repair the issues. I hope you understand.

Is it possible to communicate through email instead? If so, could you contact me at <redacted>.

Thank You!

Your offer to me...[edit]

TomStar, I remember back in February you discussed the concept of putting me up at RFA with me. I'm on springbreak now and have the time to participate in the process. Someone is going to have to explain my lengthy absence from the site, but outside of that I'm ready to go in if you're still fine with nominating me. Buggie111 (talk) 11:50, 16 March 2015 (UTC)

Please do not hound legitimate opposition to this RfA. Do not make matters worse. It is unseemly and damaging to your cause. Thank you, with respect. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 05:19, 17 March 2015 (UTC)
+1, old friend (and my own RfA nominator!). I like Buggie too, but fifty edits in the last year is like waving a red flag in front of a bull. Ed [talk] [majestic titan] 06:41, 17 March 2015 (UTC)
I too want to assume good faith in both the above ask for a nomination, and the decision to then nominate -- but 28 edits in a year, 11 of those in this month, and 77 edits in 13 months -- surely you can understand our puzzlement in this RFA. Mkdwtalk 06:46, 17 March 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Richa101091[edit]

Hi TomStar81,

Thought you might be interested in this SPI as two of the people I believe are linked were previously blocked as socks of TheDevNegi, an investigation you started. This is my 3rd SPI for Richa101091, the obvious sock targets are Indian film related topics. What I have found is that many times these users have already been accused of socks of other users. During the 1st investigation I only listed about 4 accounts, and Check User ended up coming up with about 10 more. This appears to be a HUGE meat/sock farm, so if you can comment or add any info. to help link these accounts that would be appreciated. -War wizard90 (talk) 04:55, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

AnnalesSchool[edit]

I posted this on the Project Military History page but then thought you might miss it as it is a large page, and getting larger it seems with the torrent of abuse and flak I've been getting only because I am suggesting that in several campaigns like the Greco-Italian war, the performance of the Italians is often too maligned and underestimated. Wow! Just for that I've been called all sorts of things. Fortunately I have a thick skin and it flows like water off a duck's back, because I know I am in the right. But it is interesting to see the reactions of editors who appear to be frothing at the mouth because I have challenged their pre-conceived stereotyped views of the Italians.

However TomStar81, your "solution" to lock down the article, I fear is only a temporary solution. Indeed it is really no solution at all. However, I'm ok with it. I am more than happy to be reasonable, but when I in good faith, quote and paraphrase reliable authors who are also eminent academics and historians and who may have a different view to the prevailing one, AND MY EDITS ARE REVERTED FOR SPURIOUS REASONS (OR NO REASON GIVEN) then I will certainly come back to the Military Project board and to you TomStar81 and others, and I will demand fairness and justice from the wiki administrators. Is that reasonable?AnnalesSchool (talk) 20:59, 1 April 2015 (UTC)

UTRS Unblock Request[edit]

Howdy, I'm reviewing a UTRS unblock request regarding a block placed on ISUPsychlaw (talk · contribs). According to the log, the editor was blocked due to a hard username violation, however I am unclear as to what that may be. Would you be able to provide some insight on this block? Thanks, Nakon 23:55, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

@Nakon: Maybe the answer is here: Wikipedia:Sockpuppet_investigations#ISUPsychlaw. P.S. Sorry for stalking the talk page. Vanjagenije (talk) 01:18, 11 April 2015 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Woman in Gold, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Epiphany (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.

Kyle Dubas[edit]

Hello, Tom. You declined this speedy deletion and made a redirect last December. There was actually a pre-existing draft about this person, at Draft:Kyle Dubas. He's had a lot of press, in some of Canada's largest newspapers, first because of his statistical approach to hockey, and second because he is now interim General Manager of the NHL Maple Leafs. Would you agree now that edits under the redirect, which are unsourced and promotional, can be deleted to make way for the draft to be moved to mainspace?—Anne Delong (talk) 00:12, 1 May 2015 (UTC)
