Yigal Arnon & Co.[edit]

Dear WikiDan61,

We received your message regarding our firm's Wikipedia page, and your editing (deleting) it as it seems to be "promotional advertising".

We are surprised at your view of the content we uploaded, as well as at the measure you took regarding our page.

The content we uploaded is similar in character to the content that many other law firms post on Wikipedia. We would like to point your attention to pages uploaded by other law firms in Israel such as:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herzog,_Fox_%26_Ne%27eman http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goldfarb_Seligman_%26_Co. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S._Horowitz_%26_Co.


As well as international firms such as: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linklaters http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cooley_LLP http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skadden,_Arps,_Slate,_Meagher_%26_Flom http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norton_Rose_Fulbright

In fact, many of the law firms in this Wikipedia list have Wikipedia pages similar to the one we uploaded - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_100_largest_law_firms_by_revenue

We would also like to point out that in other cases where a Wikipedia editor believed content to be promotional, they allowed for the contributor to adjust and amend the content so that it suits Wikipedia regulations, such as in this case: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holland_%26_Knight


As one of the leading law firms in Israel, we would like to have a Wikipedia page, as do other leading law firms, and we request that the observation of Wikipedia guidelines and rules is equally enforced on all users. We would very much appreciate it if you could point us to the differences in content between the above mentioned pages and the content that we started uploading to Wikipedia and was edited. In case our content was mistakenly edited, please undo the edits.

Thank you. Cynthia Leffler CynthiaLeffler (talk) 08:00, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

@CynthiaLeffler: You appear to misunderstand the nature of Wikipedia. We're building an encyclopedia here, not a business directory. If other pages are overly promotional, that's only because no one has gotten around to fixing it. I reverted your changes because your edits were blatantly promotional. The fact that you are surprised at this determination is distressing. If you can't see that phrases such as:
  • one of the most respected and dynamic law firms in Israel, with a proven track record of innovation and quality in meeting its clients’ needs
  • Throughout our history, clients has turned to Yigal Arnon & Co. when seeking professionalism, service and integrity in helping them to resolve complex and challenging legal problems.
  • Clients select us and stay with us for our comprehensive legal skills.
  • We are also selected for our good business judgment.
  • widely-recognized solution-driven and proactive corporate practice
  • (I could go on -- those are just from the first three paragraphs!)
are overtly promotional, then I may not be able to help. Wikipedia articles are not intended to reflect the company's own opinion of themselves, but are rather intended to reflect a neutral presentation of the facts about the company as can be verified by citations to reliable sources. People associated with the company are discouraged from editing the article due to the inherent conflict of interest involved. If you feel there are issues in the present version of the article that need to be addressed, you are encouraged to request changes at the article's talk page.

Disambiguation link notification for March 11[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Mental breakdown, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Depression (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.

Lunchtime Theatre London[edit]

I'm torn over what to do with this. It's not really a blatant speedy in my view as there is one (but only one) reliable source at present, and a broadsheet newspaper could review the first show next Monday, thus suddenly making it meet GNG before the 7 day grace period on a PROD or AfD is up. Two other options are to move to draft space, or merge and redirect with Leicester Square. What do you think? Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 17:10, 11 March 2015 (UTC)

@Ritchie333: I'd go with the PROD for now. If the review shows up within the next 7 days, then the issue will be resolved and the PROD can be removed. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 17:16, 11 March 2015 (UTC)
Okay, I've stuck a PROD on. The creator had a blatant COI, so I have directed him towards some advice about that. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 17:21, 11 March 2015 (UTC)

I have unreviewed a page you curated[edit]

Hi, I'm Wikicology. I wanted to let you know that I saw the page you reviewed, Merit Consulting, and have un-reviewed it again. If you have any questions, please ask them on my talk page. Thank you. Wikigyt@lk to M£ 14:58, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

@Wikicology: Huh? I tagged it for speedy deletion. Twinkle automatically marks it as reviewed as part of the tagging process. What's the problem? WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 15:00, 18 March 2015 (UTC)
No worries Dan! I guess it was a systemic error. I'm aware that you reviewed the page but to my intrusive shock, the page was not tagged appropriately, so I unreviewed the page and when i tagged it, I got a notification that it was previously tagged for deletion. Cheers! Wikigyt@lk to M£ 15:09, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

Themes and analysis of No Country for Old Men (film)[edit]

Dear WikiDan61, I have no intent to violate any copyright of any kind. That was a good compilation and I always advise my students to read that page. When I realised it wasn't there any more and after learning I could take it back, I did it. If I'd known that it violated anything, I would not do it. I'm a new one in Wikipedia. I think you could also research about my date of joining to the community, since you're the researcher type.

Before arriving any conclusion, you could simply ask! This aggresive behaviour was totally unnecessary!!!! And by the way, only having done only one thing on wikipedia, doesnt prove anthing. So you can do whatever with that entry and satisfy your ego in any (quick) way you want! have a nice day! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Aysedune (talkcontribs) 22:19, 19 March 2015 (UTC)

Aysedune, you could have simply read and adhered to the large and clearly stated instructions on the template you removed, which said "Do not restore or edit the blanked content on this page until the issue is resolved by an administrator, copyright clerk, or OTRS agent." It's a bit hard to understand how you could have seen and decided to remove the template without noticing these very clear instructions, no matter how new you are to Wikipedia. Mmyers1976 (talk) 02:41, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
@Aysedune: What action of mine are you complaining about? The fact that reverted your restoration of the copyrighted material, in direct violation of the very clear warning message that was left on the page telling you not to do that; or the fact that I then informed you of the problem. There is no question of "asking" about copyright violation. They are to be dealt with quickly. Your copyright violation was dealt with, and then you "un"dealt with it, so I reverted that change. That was not aggressive, merely following Wikipedia guidelines. And the warning I placed on your user talk page was clear and definitive, but also not aggressive. I recognized you as a new editor when I came to your user talk page, and I left the clear and direct message that I thought was required under the situation. I didn't accuse you of malevolence; I merely informed you that the action you took was improper. If you feel that I have mistreated you, you are free to take the matter up on any appropriate venue. (WP:Dispute resolution or WP:ANI might be places to start.) I don't feel I have mistreated you, but if you feel mistreated, perhaps a third party needs to evaluate the situation.

Dev Negi[edit]

i had corrected the elements. Thanyou — Preceding unsigned comment added by ScrewHue (talkcontribs) 12:34, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

@ScrewHue: No, you really didn't. The template were placed on this article because:
  1. It uses "bare URLs" as references. This is considered a bad idea because as the page remains on Wikipedia for years and years, the web page used as the reference might not remain in its current location. With no information other than a URL to work with, future editors will not be able to search for the information when the present link becomes invalid. Generally we like full citations including the name of the website (or, if the citation is to the online version of a newspaper or magazine, the name of the publication), the name of the person who wrote the information (if available), the date the material was published, the date you accessed it, etc. See Help:Citing sources.
  2. The references are given as a list at the bottom of the page, but they are not linked to the information they verify. In general, references in articles should serve to verify the facts in the article. By linking the citation to the fact (using the <ref>...</ref> syntax), the reader has a better idea of which citations to check to verify which facts.
Until you have resolved these issues, please don't remove the maintenance templates from the article. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 12:43, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

about the page dev negi[edit]

Tell me the problem clearly. please don't add the message. — Preceding unsigned comment added by ScrewHue (talkcontribs) 12:43, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

@ScrewHue: The templates are fairly clear themselves, including Wikilinks to the relevant Wikipedia policy and guideline pages to help you understand the problem. Furthermore, I have clearly explained the problem in my reply to you in the section immediately preceeding this one. If these explanations are unclear to you, please ask explicit questions about which parts you don't understand. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 12:46, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

Dev Negi[edit]

Here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:TheDevNegi For some reason when I tagged it with multiple it didn't ask who the original creator was.Wgolf (talk) 16:09, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

@Wgolf: Thanks. I broke the db-multiple into individual tags to allow their parameters to be used. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 16:19, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

remove notice[edit]

I have removed the {{prod}} tag from Goebbels effect,which you proposed for deletion. Because Goebbels effect indeed have related research(You can click here to verify), so even if Joseph Goebbels did not say those words, it does not mean that the phenomenon does not exist. I'm leaving this message here to notify you about it. If you still think the article should be deleted, please don't add the {{prod}} template back to the article. Instead, feel free to list it at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion. Thanks! by Lyqwan123 (talk) 12:13, 21 March 2015 (UTC)

Hups[edit]

Just for your information—you may find it funny—, I'm trying to complete a task you started in the year 2009: see the revision history of Hups. --Cyfal (talk) 18:43, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

@Cyfal: You may find that the PROD is declined. Technically, an article that has once been prodded and had the PROD declined (even by the article's author, for no good reason) may not be PRODded again, and should instead be brought to WP:AFD. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 23:04, 22 March 2015 (UTC)
I see... I didn't understand yesterday, that a removal of the PROD tag is sufficent for a decline. I will therefore bring it to WP:AFD. (This will presumably become number one in my private list User:Cyfal/Trivia#Longtime_vandalism_and_other_nonsense...) --Cyfal (talk) 10:56, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
@Cyfal: You know there's more to the AFD process than just adding the AFD tag to the article, right? WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 11:08, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
Yes, I'm just reading the documentation and performing the necessary steps, please wait... --Cyfal (talk) 11:11, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

Contested deletion - Lithofayne Pridgeon[edit]

I realise that the page I started is a little sparse and seems speculative, but the Guardian article which I used as my source is very reliable and I thought other people might add detail and additional factual information about Lithofayne Pridgeon that was mentioned in it - the Jimmy Hendrix early years page simply refers to her but does not give additional information about her interesting life. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Marthaphipps96 (talkcontribs) 22:20, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

Copy paste[edit]

Hi WikiDan61, it appears that this edit inserted verbatim text from the source. Please paraphrase or rewrite to avoid a copyvio. Cheers, LeadSongDog come howl! 01:49, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

@LeadSongDog: If you'll examine the history of the page, you'll note that I did not add the copied text, that was Drnaveenp.in (talk · contribs). I merely provided the citation for it. However, as a simple list of information, it's not clear that it is subject to copyright. However, if you feel that it is, feel free to remove it. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 03:14, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
