Strange edit summary[edit]

Can you explain the edit summary you left in this diff: Special:Diff/616881644? --Auric talk 13:07, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

Was doing c&p for edit summary and forgot I had copied something else in the meantime and forgot to change back. Sorry. Waacstats (talk) 13:42, 14 July 2014 (UTC)


I see you're contributing persondata descriptions. Before you add any more, you might like to know there's a proposal to remove persondata from Wikipedia, as it's now redundant to Wikidata. If you want to contribute, you could add labels to Wikidata, or use the Wikidata 'game' to improve the data there. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 21:17, 20 July 2014 (UTC)

I just came here to post the RFC, dang I'm slow. Bgwhite (talk) 22:07, 20 July 2014 (UTC)

Posting in my Sandbox[edit]

Hello Waacstats. I see you have been posting persdondata in my Sandbox. If you want to add info to Valentine Pelka's page, please go to the actual Wikipedia article, not my Sandbox. I know you just want to help, but the Sandbox is MY place for my private experimentation. If you want to write to me privately with suggestions, that is fine, but it would be better if you leave my sandbox alone especially as per the other person you added info for since Qworty and his cronies decided last year that that screenwriter was not worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia. So giving him a Screenwriter person data tag will just get other people upset and I don't need the subsequent attacks that will happen if that appears anywhere else, especially after the horrors heaped on me last year. Thank you for your attempt to help, but it is best to stop adding info to my sandbox. If you want to suggest something to me, you may do so on my Talk page. Thank you!Taram (talk) 15:10, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

You seem to be using a bot[edit]

Please mark bot edits with the bot flag. I think bots need to be approved too. I don't think you are just using AWB because you seem to be adding persondata to userpages.[1][2][3][4][5] --Surturz (talk) 07:26, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

  • I am not using a bot, I just alternate occasionaly between AWB and manual editing. Waacstats (talk) 16:51, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Salvo (artist)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Salvo (artist) has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, this newly created biography of a living person will be deleted unless it has at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article. The nominator also raised the following concern:

All biographies of living people created after March 18, 2010, must have references.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within seven days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. bpage (talk) 03:25, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

AWB with NLP Bot?[edit]

Are you using some NLP bot while using AWB? Because, in person data AWB drive, I have noticed that you messed up gender here.--» nafSadh did say 19:25, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

Hello, I notice that on you user page you say that one of your tasks is to make a page for every competitor of the olympics and that it is complete up to 1904. I'm sorry if this sounds rude but just a quick look through the 1900 olympics and I have found a few red links. Is there reason behind that or should I go and create them? -- NickGibson3900 - Talk - Sign my Guestbook 09:49, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Although you did not create the new article Ryo Sugimoto, I am leaving this message because you have contributed to its improvement with your edits. Thank you! Please keep up the good work and consider making even more improvements if you can.

Best Regards,

Javier Porras[edit]

Hi Waacstats, I noticed you created the article Javier Porras, it seems that this Paralympian is the same as Xavier Porras, an article that was created after yours but is more now thoroughly written and seems to be the name he is most commonly known by; if you have no objection my plan is to turn your article into a redirect as there doesn't appear to be anything that needs to be merged. Cheers - Basement12 (T.C) 09:45, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

  • No problems, just confused a bit by the names on the Xavier Porras article. Waacstats (talk) 11:28, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

Re Esselen people[edit]

Re Esselen people, would you please either undo or rollback so my bot gets a notification, or leave me a talk message, so that I can fix the problem? The edit to undo doesn't help me find problems. Thanks Rjwilmsi 07:28, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Tamara Heribanová - writer[edit]

Hi Waacstats, I have created the article Tamara Heribanová one month ago. So far this article has not been approved. Please, could you write me, why that is? Thank you for your help... Babari4 (talk) 10:42, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

only draft articles need approving. If you create a page then no approval is needed. Your article does not need approval. Waacstats (talk) 20:15, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

Recent Persondata edits[edit]

I'm confused as to why your edit summaries say "removing Persondata" when it seems that you're adding it. Help? Aristophanes68 (talk) 20:11, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

Thanks forgot to change the automatic description on AWB back. Waacstats (talk) 20:13, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
No problem. I've just seen a lot of recent vandalism which used false edit summaries, so I wanted to make sure your edits were legit (not realizing you're one of the 40 most active editors--d'oh!). Cheers! Aristophanes68 (talk) 21:06, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
