I have completed my review of Boyle Roche and passed it as a Good Article. Congratulations! This is a fine piece of work, and it's been a pleasure working with you to fix the last 1% or so to bring it to this status. Choess 01:36, 17 September 2006 (UTC)

Hi. If an only author has blanked the page, please tag it G7 only author request rather (I can't give the Page Curation wording as I won't touch that thing - I reckon it's to blame for a lot of wrong tagging and was foisted on us) than 'no content' etc. It's fairer to the author to have them listed as the requester of the deletion, as this is taken into consideration when a title has been repeatedly re-created and protection is being considered. Peridon (talk) 13:37, 15 February 2015 (UTC)
This article should not be speedily deleted for lack of asserted importance because it talks about a wll known Banking institution of Geneva. This Bank has a lot of instutions related to its current structure (cf. the website of the group: www.morval.ch): Swiss, Italy, Luxembourg, Monaco, Uruguay, Cayman islands. This bank is well known in the area of Geneva and is often quoted in the specialized medias such as: Agefi (specialized economic newspaper), Le Temps (Swiss newspaper), Tribune de Genève (Geneva main newspaper). As the articles were talking about very precise topics, they are not quoted in the article "Banque Morval" in Wikipedia. This Bank is actually getting more present in the medias and newspapers articles will support the current article in Wikipedia in the weeks that follow. Please do not delete this article that summarizes very shortly the History of this private bank without promoting the its services. The informations are only summarizing known facts.
Best regards Pete Abagnele,
I took down the BLP prod for Hezi Bezalel as he does have refs on the Hebrew wiki-I did put one up from there but since I don't know the language...but yeah if there is a expand language tag try to avoid putting up blp prods, thanks. Wgolf (talk) 23:12, 17 February 2015 (UTC)
Hello, Thanks for contacting me! Please do not delete https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valeriy_Pecheykin page I just created. I have added reference links. Sorry, hit "save" button too early! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Pomerz (talk • contribs) 19:13, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

List of Gulag camps
You are wrong. Please read Talk page for this article and please answer my questions. I deleted unsourced original research and evident litter. The article is named "List of gulag camps". How acronym MIA = Ministry of internal affairs is related to directorates of Gulag camps? What is the source of Polish acronyms listed as camps? If Russians were using Polish in names of Gulag camps? What is the source of the information deleted? From where it was taken? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 18:01, 26 February 2015 (UTC)

smarTours is an international tour operator who contributes to many news sites and publications and is very important within the travel industry, does this not warrant importance?
Hello Ubiquity. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of SmarTours, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: Sources provided are a credible indication of importance. Take to AfD if you want to test notability. Thank you. GedUK 12:45, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
I do not believe that this page should be proposed for deletion as the company is often competing with unrelated topics with similar names, such as Brookstone's ecomfort product line, a potential source of confusion for customers looking for information about HVAC retailers and provides additional value for internet users who may be attempting to vet the authenticity of an ecommerce portal. For the same purposes as comparing amazon with alibaba, this page allows Wikipedia users, web visitors, and potential customers of HVAC equipment to accurately understand where they are buying from, compared to competitors and nominally similar products from other manufacturers.
I personally had a hard time researching information about this company without hopping from site to site. Wikipedia provides the indexation of these various sources for ease of my viewing as well as others in the same purchasing position. I created this account to create a page for this purpose. This is my first post to the wiki, so if there are other corrections you recommend, please clarify. — Preceding unsigned comment added by EComfort com (talk • contribs) 14:09, 10 March 2015 (UTC)
Noted for Ubiquity- I have denied your request for deletion as the article vets claims with accurate sourcing and its ranking with national listings as well as press coverage from major publications indicating notability. The desire to avoid confusion that is mentioned above is valid as a quick google search indicates that a user could easily be confused by varying uses of 'eComfort' by different retailers. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Snewoneb (talk • contribs) 14:24, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

|I don't understand why you've marked it for deletion. I haven't even finished writing it, adding references, etc. Slootio (talk) 19:15, 10 March 2015 (UTC)|
I'm sorry I tagged your article for deletion, Slootio. I tagged it because it was empty. I had no way of knowing whether you had abandoned it, were working on it, or had just done a test edit. And I knew that if you were still working on it, it would take less than a second to remove the tag. But once you put an article out in the main space, it becomes subject to the scrutiny of everyone. I saw an empty article with no indication of intent to complete, so I tagged it.
If you are working on an article and do not want it to be subject to the usual scrutiny, there are several techniques you can use:
- Use the Under construction or In use templates (though strictly speaking these should not be used for new articles with little content)
- Use the sandbox.
- Put the page in the Draft: namespace.
- Keep the page in your own User: pages until it is ready.
Any one of the above techniques will protect an article while you are working on it; all but the first will ensure that no one even notices it until it is ready. ubiquity (talk) 20:14, 10 March 2015 (UTC)
You're a pretty experienced reviewer, so I'm hoping this was just a lack of caffeine in your system or something, but how on earth did you let this pass? "At the age of 4, Means was separated from his mother but managed to survive by joining up with a pack of rapid raccoons. The raccoons taught him many skills which helped his survive into adulthood," "Means' feet were so big that he was able to gain an incredible 6 extra feet of elevation when standing on his tip-toes," "the cost of manufacturing his shoes was an estimated $16,000,000 per foot," "Means is working as a stand-up comedian in a jail"; all direct quotations from the text you reviewed. Maybe have another cup of coffee before continuing, eh? Yunshui 雲水 15:48, 11 March 2015 (UTC)
- I don't know why it marked that I had reviewed it. I was trying to tag it for a speedy for obvious hoax, but the curation system told me someone else had already tagged it, so I didn't. Just the fact that they said the guy was a black panther born in 1492 was enough for me to want to tag it. ubiquity (talk) 15:53, 11 March 2015 (UTC)
Dear Sir, you redacted my article on the newly discovered NSA trojan hack in the firmware of virtually all hard drives. You mentioned that the subject was covered in another article, but you failed to mention the name of that article. garfield garfield
Hello Ubiquity, I was about to inform those that are responsible for wiki pages that I have done a terrible mistake and I'm very sorry. I also want the page CERN accelerators to be deleted actually! So, thank you very much in advance and sorry again! Best, Ellipapa (talk) 15:25, 16 March 2015 (UTC)
List of Northwest Missouri State Bearcats football head coaches page
Hello, I wanted to thank you for deleting the page. I accidentally created it when I thought I was claiming one of my sandboxes to draft for that page. Can I still create the page WHEN there is sufficient content for the page? ThanksUCO2009bluejay (talk) 00:08, 17 March 2015 (UTC)
- I didn't delete it, as I am not a mod; I just tagged it. It was deleted by Nakon (talk · contribs), who is a mod, if you want to ask her or him, but I'm sure he or she will tell you the same thing. I don't think you'll have any trouble creating the page when you're ready. Kudos for doing it the right way (keeping it in draft or user or sandbox until it's ready). ubiquity (talk) 01:01, 17 March 2015 (UTC)
Radboud Excellence Initiative
Hello, I would like to ask your advice as to how I can make the page less promotional and more informative. I intend the page to be information as to what the Initiative is and who is in it etc not as an advert. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by GWL88 (talk • contribs) 14:03, 17 March 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the message you left on my page. We have had a few newspaper articles written about it so I will put the links to these on the page as well as seeing if I can tone it down further still. Hopefully the page will avoid being deleted then. — Preceding unsigned comment added by GWL88 (talk • contribs) 14:31, 17 March 2015 (UTC)
Hi Dear @ubiquity i'm editing this page with new contents and removing all constants that seems promotional so please requesting you not to remove this page till my next update. This page is related to Gas technologies and Industrial gases please check other related articles Gas cabinet & Orbital welding Regards Show-reality (talk) 19:13, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
- Hi, Show-reality. I am not a moderator, so I am not the person who will delete your article, if anyone does. You answered the tag for speedy deletion on the article's talk page, which was the right thing to do. A moderator will make the decision. To me, the article seems promotional because it does not meet the general notability guidelines. It's not enough to use a company website and directories and commercial listings to show that the company exists, because Wikipedia is not a directory. You need to show that reputable and independent third parties have found Critical Systems to be notable, and I do not believe you have done that. It's true that the language of the article is also promotional in tone (it reads, as another editor noted, like an advertisement), but to me the main point is the lack of references speaking to notability.
- If you are still working on the article and do not want other editors to review it until you are done, there are several techniques you can use:
- Any one of the above techniques will ensure that no one even notices the article until it is ready. ubiquity (talk) 19:30, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
- Great! See my advice in the previous section for what you should do with an article that's not yet ready for primetime to avoid the scrutiny of other editors. ubiquity (talk) 01:16, 24 March 2015 (UTC)

Speedy on Jude Millien
I think I've added enough for the speedy to go away, but still not enough that it would survive an RFD. Working with original editor. If we can't get any farther I'll RFD it myself.Naraht (talk) 16:40, 25 March 2015 (UTC)
- I think the references are weak, but I agree, no longer a speedy. I added wikilinks to two comics he has worked on. Maybe you or the editor can find something more specific about his contribution to them? If he drew them, he's notable. If he was intern to the assistant inker, maybe not. ubiquity (talk) 16:56, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

Pier440 on Wild Escape
Hey there. The original article was at DaGuai LuZi. My concern here is that the naming convention may not be ideal. At a minimum, it should be "Daguai Luzi" to be using standard Mandarin capitalization (for example, you don't see "BeiJing" or "ShangHai". The "DaGuai LuZi" page is being redirected to Wild Escape. It was mentioned that there are some people who know the game as "Wild Escape". I've heard it called as "The Joker's Way" (which is the literal translation of Daguai Luzi). I just thought Wild Escape had a better ring to it.
The game can be found in lots of Chinese game websites.
And so on.
Is the concern more about the English name, or the relevance? I believe it is played enough to be relevant. Pier440 (talk) 20:00, 31 March 2015 (UTC)
- I think you correctly addressed the naming problems with redirect pages. My problem is with notability. Your only reference is a webpage showing the rules of the game. Anyone can make up a set of rules and publish them on the web. Do you have any references that speak to who is playing the game, or where, or how much? Something that would show that the topic "has received significant coverage in reliable sources that are independent of the subject? I don't seem to be able to access the two you mention, and i fear they're in Chinese, so I wouldn't be able to read them anyway. ubiquity (talk) 20:26, 31 March 2015 (UTC)
Rejection for speedy deletion of Namrata Yogi
Hello,there Ubiquity Speedy deletion nomination has been declined and removed the tag you put by pointing it as a deletable article, because of this concerns that the article is endowed with citations and references along with and has clearly indicated that it has fulfiled the requirements of wikipedia but you have complaint me of having biography or group of peoples how? Take a look to other such kind of artickles whether you find such or not.If you make thus detered to the newcomers then how do new comers get chance to help Wikipedia with writing articles ?Mahendra Niraula (talk) 14:48, 2 April 2015 (UTC)
- Hi, Majendra. I have had nothing to do with the article Namrata Yogi; you can check its history if you don't believe me. Perhaps you meant to discuss with me the article Dipika K.C., which I tagged for speedy deletion. Unfortunately, the article has already been deleted, and I cannot remember it, but if it had references and I still tagged it, it probably means that the references did not meet Wikipedia standards of reliability. Since I am not a moderator, I cannot actually delete articles myself, so the fact that the article is gone means that at least one moderator (in this case, Shirt58 (talk · contribs)) must have agreed with my assessment. If you want to discuss this with someone "official", you should take it up with him or her. ubiquity (talk) 15:24, 2 April 2015 (UTC)
Speedy deletion of Lady Emily Foley
Hi Ubiquity Thanks for looking at this. I very stupidly saved the page I was working on before adding a great deal - just the infobox in fact. I have added some more now, hopefully enough to make it worthy of keeping as a stub. I plan on adding even more information in the near future. In future, I will do my working out in my sandbox. Apologies for the work I have put you to. Malpensilo (talk) 16:38, 2 April 2015 (UTC)
- I removed the speedy as soon as I saw you had fleshed out the article. And I'm glad you know how to use the sandbox, even if you didn't this time. The Drafts space is also useful for keeping things under wraps until they're ready. Good luck with your article. ubiquity (talk) 16:46, 2 April 2015 (UTC)
Is a soft redirect to Wiktionary. It is an important term, used several times on Wikipedia, mostly in reference to natural disasters and poverty, for example backward classes may be defined partly in terms of the percentage that live in kutcha houses.
It is possible that a short article could be made about the concept of kutcha houses and pucca houses at some time in the future.
In general soft redirects do not fall under the category of "test pages".
All the best: Rich Farmbrough, 17:32, 2 April 2015 (UTC).
Deletion of Nothing Clothing Company
I have just been informed of the deletion of this page and would like to know firstly what is wrong with it? and secondly what would need to be done to make it allowed in your view.
The reason for deletion as promotion does not sit right and it is clear that the page is applying itself as a document for informational only purposes. This is heavily backed up by social media linking and providence of local and national press. The brand is very different to pretty much anything else out there and this is certainly something that is worth communicating.
The purpose of the page is really for the history and association of those that we partner with and support. I intend to update this regularly providing evidence for and linking to various charitable organisations and or celebrity associations, thus building an historical timeline of charitable influence which is what the brand is about.
If you feel that there are pieces that suggest promotion then feel free to go ahead and remove/edit those bits that you suggest are promotional. As far as I am concerned the page simply states who, what, where and why and is not dissimilar to many other brand pages.
- Hi, Peter. I did not delete your page, as I am not a moderator. I did tag it for deletion, because I felt it was promotional, and a moderator (Samwalton9 (talk · contribs)) who saw it after I tagged it must have agreed with me, because he deleted it. Unfortunately, since the article is gone I can't look at it, but going by my memory, it was promotional in tone, and the references were mostly to social media, which are not considered reliable by Wikipedia standards. If you want to try again, you might find it helpful to read Wikipedia:Notability (organizations and companies) and Wikipedia:Verifiability#Questionable sources. You might also want to take this up with Samwalton9 (talk · contribs), as he would be able to give you back a copy of the deleted article. ubiquity (talk) 14:43, 3 April 2015 (UTC)
Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Steve Kaczynski, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page British (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.

Speedy deletion nomination of KVART & BØLGE
Hithere, saw you flagged my new entry for deletion. First of, thanks for doing your part for keeping things clean. I am, myself sensitive to spam, but do feel that our company is noteworthy and sources are duly cited. Rather than deleting the page, would you mind providing guidance what exactly you considered promotional?
Thanks for any time you are willing to put into this.
- Unfortunately, NawlinWiki (talk · contribs) already deleted the article (which means that he agreed with me that the article was unambiguously promotional) so I can't tell you exactly what I found promotional about it. Do you have a copy of the content that you could post to your user page so that I could review it? ubiquity (talk) 17:07, 14 April 2015 (UTC)

I declined your speedy deletion nomination of Vartak Nagar. There is sufficient context to identify the subject as a 2015 Hindi-language film (so WP:CSD#A1 doesn't apply) and films are not subject to WP:CSD#A7 deletion. Also, a Google search for "Varak Nagar film" reveals a fair number of hits, so the Indian press is clearly giving this film some attention (enough to avoid even a PROD, I think).

Speedy Deletion of page Bimal Patel
I created the page Bimal Patel and it was deleted. You asked me to leave a note on your talk page for clarifications. I am new to creating on wikipedia, so could you please explain why you found my page inappropriate and also guide me how I can start afresh for the same page, what kind of material is deemed appropriate and whats the minimum requirement? — Preceding unsigned comment added by ParizadBaria (talk • contribs) 15:27, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
- Hi. Since the article was deleted (by moderator Just Chilling (talk · contribs)) I can no longer see it. However, I can see it was deleted on the basis of notability. To be included in Wikipedia, the subject of an article must meet the general notability guidelines. You must explain who Bimal Patel and why he is notable, and this must be backed up by references to reliable and reputable sources (that is, something besides tweets, self-published pages, youtube videos, etc). The idea is that if mainstream sources have found him notable enough to write about, he can objectively be said to be notable. If you cannot find such references, perhaps the subject is not notable for Wikipedia purposes, or perhaps it is too soon.
- For a good example of an article which asserts notability and has references to back it up, see Bimal N. Patel. ubiquity (talk) 16:13, 23 April 2015 (UTC)

Hi, this is Gireesh Kodali, creator of the page: Credit Cafe. I believe that the content of the article is not promotional and is for informational purposes only. Could you suggest what portions of the page needs further reference? Credit Cafe and its group (TS Mahalingam group) is well known locally, being in existence since 1935. It is a promoter driven organization and is closely managed by the third generation promoter group. While I do not have published references to validate some of the content, I could also look at notable individuals and wiki contributors to endorse the content. Do let me know how we may work together to iron out the page. Gireesh.Kodali (talk) 05:25, 27 April 2015 (UTC)
Need help to understand how wikipedia works
I was wondering if you could help me understand how Wikipedia articles work with Google? For instance, when I look up "Charles Correa" on Google, I see a box on the right side of my google search results, which shows information extracted from wikipedia. However, this doesn't happen when I search for "Bimal Patel" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bimal_Patel) Infact, this wikipedia page does not even show up in the first few results unless I search "Bimal Patel Wiki/Wikipedia"
Could you please explain what the logic here is?
