About the sockpuppet article[edit]

I am Tonicwatergaming. I would like you to tell me what I need to cite below this comment. My proof is that there once was an article on sleeper puppets on the sock puppet(internet) article. I dont know who made it or removed it, but I felt that info was missing. And please tell me where my article went, I worked 30 minutes of my free time on it so if you would be so kind to show me it, I would much appreciate it, Thanks!Tonicwatergaming 17:36, 9 March 2017 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tonicwatergaming (talkcontribs)

@McGeddon. Is this okay? I will run it by you if it fails again and/or forget about it. sock puppet (internet) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tonicwatergaming (talkcontribs) 17:47, 9 March 2017 (UTC)

Antilliaanse Feesten[edit]

why do you delete this article ? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Caribesalsa (talkcontribs) 22:24, 20 February 2017 (UTC)

this event starts in 2017 the 35. time --- there are ~ 40000 visitors

you marked it with CSD A7.

do you think its unimportent ???


[qoute]Your very short article was flagged for deletion because, like it says above, it did not "credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant". I think all it said was that it took place in a particular city and had happened for a particular number of years. If you want to write the article again, you need to indicate to the reader why the festival is significant[/qoute]

have a look at https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antilliaanse_Feesten

woodstock has a place here too ???!!!

Thank you for uploading this file.

Thank you for uploading File:How to Spot Fake News.pdf. This could be used on more pages to help improve understanding on Wikipedia in an accessible way. Sagecandor (talk) 19:49, 24 February 2017 (UTC)

+1 to this! Also, our partners at IFLA are really grateful, apparently the info-graphic found its way onto CNN thanks to it being in the lead of the article. Astinson (WMF) (talk) 14:34, 1 March 2017 (UTC)

Thanks, but credit should go to User:Wittylama who uploaded the original .jpg version - I just replaced it with a .pdf from the same source. --McGeddon (talk) 15:41, 1 March 2017 (UTC)
Well in that case, the credit should go to Sadads for the project idea, and Whiteghost.ink for suggesting the upload and for putting it into the w:Fake news article in the first place(diff) :-) ! Wittylama 15:49, 1 March 2017 (UTC)

"New" ip range of long-term vandal[edit]

It seems that Lrednuas Senoroc/Hassan Rebell has changed his ip range. The first one was a proxy sock that was mentioned on the SPI and the second one seems his "new" physical ip from Germany. Unfortunately, his accounts were not blocked on the SPI, since they are already blocked for impersonating other editors and his IPS were not range-blocked, since it seems that he abandoned them. As I explained on the SPI, impersonating other editors is his "tactic". See my comments on the page Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Lrednuas Senoroc. So the best thing to do is that, getting re-blocked the Hassan Rebell, since he has been continuing exactly the same things, despite Beeblebrox gave a chance to him. So I decided to contact admins JzG and Beeblebrox. However, JzG's page is semi-protected, could you please contact him regarding Hassan Rebell's "actions"? 'Cause Rebell was first blocked by @JzG:, per WP:NOTHERE. And obviously deserve the same block again in addition to sockpuppetry. 19:41, 25 February 2017 (UTC)

PS: An another solution, after getting re-blocked Hassan Rebell, would be semi-protecting certain Kurdish-related articles. It would be more easy to deal with his sock accounts comparing his plenty of ip socks.46.221.165.211 (talk) 22:39, 25 February 2017 (UTC)

@Vanjagenije:, could you please check his "new" range to see if the same agenda continues?And is there a policy regarding logged-out socking? I mean is it ok when an user does not make problematic edits via his registered accounts but involved in disruptive edits via his IPS? As far as I remember, there is a policy about it. 46.221.182.14 (talk) 19:41, 25 February 2017 (UTC)

This is really annoying. The SPI case was closed on 22 February, and he's back with a new range on 25 February! If he had used an account, he would have been banned 100 times, but no one can do anything because he is abusing plenty of ip ranges and only "soft-blocked" because of "impersonating" other editors. This is unfair. 46.221.182.14 (talk) 19:59, 25 February 2017 (UTC)

Again, I'm unable to click through and easily check any of these conversations you're referring to because you're on a dynamic IP. If you want to raise a new SPI, by all means go ahead and do so. (If you can't do this because you don't have an autoconfirmed account, then create a single-purpose account for it.) --McGeddon (talk) 18:02, 26 February 2017 (UTC)

Bullying[edit]

I do not appreciate you having me cited for poor sources when all I was doing was defining "Unite" as a trade union. I asked you to look at the website of Unite - it says, clear as day, it is a "trade union". You may or may not agree with my edits; but to threaten me with a ban is cowardly and means I will simply use proxy servers more often to circumvent your draconian ideas. You are not the God of wikipedia - please explain your actions before hitting me with sanctions is all I ask. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.22.169.240 (talk) 18:23, 1 March 2017 (UTC)

Please comment on Chris Capoccia[edit]

We are having the same problems with Wikipedian Chris Capoccia's bibliographic edits that you had cited months ago for a different but similar edit. These repeated edit efforts are on Emily Ying Yang Chan, an article I've been watching carefully. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Chris_Capoccia MaynardClark (talk) 20:28, 5 March 2017 (UTC)

Chess.com[edit]

None of my edits were unconstructive. If you don't know as much about the subject as me you shouldn't be reverting. The recent 'regular contributor' I added contributes to chess.com more often than all the others listed put together Nimzo321 (talk) 11:28, 6 March 2017 (UTC)

I'll try to do edits better. But when the article is about a forum website, fora are a primary source Nimzo321 (talk) 13:56, 6 March 2017 (UTC)

Flags[edit]

Hello McGeddon

My apologies for misusing flag icons. I had seen them inserted in a few places like Avignon Cathedral (i.e. to say, other churches' infoboxes) and liked the look, so I started putting them in other places. I will revert all unnecessary flag icons that I have inserted, as well as in places I found them where they shouldn't be. I had no idea that there was a specific Manual of Style regarding flag icons. I have thoroughly read the subseciton on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style/Icons#Avoid_flag_icons_in_infoboxes. Thank you very much for directing me there--it helped very much. I have one question regarding the usage of flag icons though: Would inserting flag icons into the wiki articles of dioceses (e.g. Catholic, Anglican, etc.) be acceptable? Dioceses are "human geographical articles" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style/Icons#Avoid_flag_icons_in_infoboxes and not "physical geographical articles" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style/Icons#Avoid_flag_icons_in_infoboxes, so wouldn't usage of flag icons be appropriate in these articles?

Thanks for your help --Ka24872482Akeakamai (talk) 18:49, 6 March 2017 (UTC)

Will do. Thank you.

--Ka24872482Akeakamai (talk) 18:54, 6 March 2017 (UTC)

Hello McGeddon

I had one more question regarding human geography:

Wouldn't religious buildings (mosques, churches, synagogues, temples, etc.) be considered part of human geography since they aren't naturally occurring formation? Wikipedia's articles on "Human geography" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_geography, "Building" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Building, and "Cultural geography" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cultural_geography seem to not touch the topic, though these links regarding AP Human Geography (https://quizlet.com/2120072/ap-human-geography-cultural-geography-flash-cards/ [which specifically mentions religious buildings (see "Christian religious buildings", "Hindu religious buildings", "Buddhist", "Islamic religious buildings", and "Judaic")] and https://www.brightknowledge.org/knowledge-bank/geography-and-environment/spotlight-on-geography/human-geography-and-physical-geography certainly [which touches on religion in general (see "Cultural Geography")]) seem to concur that religion/religious buildings are part of human geography.

Thank you

Thank you[edit]

Thank you for telling me how I should speak to people without insulting. Trying to ignore someone's opinion from its point of view has become more difficult than I thought and lately I'm having a hard time ignoring this North Carolina IP Hopper whose been around since last year. I will try my best to do as you say. — FilmandTVFan28 (talk) 03:44, 15 March 2017 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Kumdang-2, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Bird flu (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Resume Page Link Deletion[edit]

Hi there,

You deleted this insertion to the 'resume' page because you noted that the link cited was not appropriate for an encyclopedia:

A typical résumé contains a summary statement that quickly and concisely sums up professional identity, a skills section that outlines interpersonal and technical abilities, a work experience section that spells out job history, and an education section that details certifications, degrees, and diplomas.

I personally worked with LiveCareer.com to update my resume and the people creating the information on this page are all resume writers certified by the national resume writers association. Please let me know what is necessary to prove that this link is a valuable resource and that this information is factual and representative of the views of the experts who have to go through the certification process. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Stekatz7 (talkcontribs) 21:34, 22 March 2017 (UTC)
