Deletion query[edit]

Hello, I'm also new to wikipedia and you just deleted my page. But just like y Sadkins1953 I am the owner of the copyright of the page

Now I want to know how can I put the page back like it was.

Many thanks for your help. J.

Hi. I was working on the page Draft:Electrodiagnostic medicine and it was nominated for deletion deletion due to bot-flagged copyright infringement. It was given a speedy deletion under G12, yet I am the copyright owner of the infringing material and sent in an email as directed in the wikipedia copyrighted material donation section. I also added the OTRS pending tag; however, I may have placed it in the wrong spot since I'm new to wikipedia editing. I plan on adding more third party source material, but, since it was deleted, I cannot work on it anymore. If you don't want to undo the deletion can you send me the raw text of the page so I can work on it and resubmit it at a later date? Thanks,

Sadkins1953 (talk) 03:18, 8 January 2015 (UTC)

After looking further into the email, I made formatting errors and need to resend it to properly donate the material. However, as before, I need the raw text to clarify which pages I used and am donating.

I had emailed that I was the copyright owner of the electrodiagnostic medicine material and was awaiting a response. I also was working on adding source material. Can you please undo the deltion so I can continue to work on the page? Sadkins1953 (talk) 23:53, 6 January 2015 (UTC)sadkins1953

A cup of coffee for you![edit]

Cup-o-coffee-simple.svg Thanks for your handling of User_talk:Wizardman/Archive56#A_cup_of_coffee_for_you.21. Sometimes on self-reflection I wonder why I cannot see obvious solutions in front of me and try to do things in an unnecessarily difficult way. You recognized a path to resolution and I hope when I am in the same situation again then I think about how you wrapped up a conflict among multiple people in no time with little effort. I hope I do better next time. Blue Rasberry (talk) 01:33, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

Request Edits[edit]

Hi WizardMan. Your name just popped up on my watchlist, because you updated the WikiProject tags on a couple articles I brought up to GA. You did GA reviews for a couple articles where I have a COI - I think it was Noel Lee and Sig Mejdal. Because I follow WP:COI, which requires an editor with a COI lean very heavily on disinterested editors to review their work and whatnot, I always have a need for other editors to collaborate on certain pages and was wondering if you had time to take a look at a few articles I'm working on.

Deleting my shit[edit]

why are you constantly deleting my edits??? --Elijahadmire (talk) 06:53, 19 January 2015 (UTC)


Information icon There is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. Thank you.. The relevant section is WP:ANI#User:Wizardman Blackmane (talk) 22:12, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

In summary, the copyvio-ing complainant from the section immediately above thought that WP:ANI would be the best place to bring his complaint about you to a wider audience, but failed to duck when the boomerang approached. He now has a vacation of indefinite length from the delights of editing WP. BencherliteTalk 15:52, 20 January 2015 (UTC)
I love when you're nice to someone and give them rope, then they immediately decide to hang themselves with it. Sometimes people just don't get it. Wizardman 03:23, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

Reviewing Good Articles[edit]

I know some things about reviewing GA articles but would like to enroll in the course and get help from an experienced GA editor like yourself. Would you be willing to take on one more student? Most of the users are inactive or not available at the time. Eurodyne (talk) 01:30, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

I would be totally up for it. Anything at this time cold help :P. Eurodyne (talk) 03:48, 21 January 2015 (UTC)
Is there anything you have for me to do/help with? Eurodyne (talk) 02:10, 24 January 2015 (UTC)

Help with a case[edit]

Hi Wizardman;

I was wondering if you could help the committee with some input on a current case. Basically, we have two accounts which are mutually incompatible and they need analysis. As you have done this in the past, you may wish to help again. It's all explained here. Many thanks in advance,  Roger Davies talk 07:52, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

Help with Vianovo draft[edit]

Hi there. I'm reaching out because you recently helped my colleague user:16912 Rhiannon update Tucker Eskew's article. I've written an article draft for Tucker's firm, Vianovo, and I was hoping you might take a look since you have some familiarity with the topic. I've submitted it to Articles for Creation, but it hasn't been properly reviewed due to the backlog. I did have one editor leave a comment, but it was fairly dismissive based on my conflict of interest—like my colleague, I'm working on behalf of Vianovo. I'd really appreciate any feedback or help if you have the time! Thanks, Heatherer (talk) 20:05, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

Hello, Wizardman, does this page, Blaine Taylor, which you indefinitely semi-protected back in 2011, really still need it? - Bossanoven (talk) 23:38, 26 January 2015 (UTC)
