BLP, ethnicity, gender[edit]

Wikipedia talk:Biographies of living persons#Include "ethnicity, gender," to match all other guidelines

Some say source requirements for ethnicity and gender of WP:EGRS don't apply to WP:BLP living persons, simply because the two words aren't in the policy. (Apparently, they think it should only apply to dead people.) I see that you have participated on this topic at the Village Pump.

They also are trying to remove the notability, relevance, and self-identification criteria at WT:EGRS, but that's another fight for another day, I'm simply too busy to watch two fronts at the same time.

We're on the 6th day. Traditionally, these polls go for 7; unless there's no obvious consensus, when we go for an additional 7 days.

Khadim Faye[edit]

Hi there NAMIBA, VASCO from Portugal here,

regarding this player's article, i will leave the current version be, for two reasons: i hate edit wars with well-intended users (as yourself) and i respect your work (unlike what you do with mine). About reason #2: yes there are LOWLY clubs, MODEST if you will, clubs (and not just in football), clubs that have never gained (much/any) notoriety throughout their history; you seem to say there are none, OK, i'll leave it be, i see you won't stop reverting me if i re-add the word, it's a waste of your (and my) time.

Attentively, happy Saturday - --Vasco Amaral (talk) 17:22, 19 March 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Dorothy Brower Barkley[edit]

Hello Namiba. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Dorothy Brower Barkley, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: This has been dePRODded in the past on the grounds that she was a significant historical figure. That's not apparent from the article, but I don't think it should be speedied: consider AfD. Thank you. JohnCD (talk) 18:02, 19 March 2011 (UTC)

Regards to Redirects to April 1st Incident[edit]

Hi Namiba, I would like to express my disagreement with your recent redirects of individuals involved in the Action of 1 April 2010. I am in the middle of FOIA requests for their photographs, and would like to add more information about them over-time. Phearson (talk) 19:36, 24 March 2011 (UTC)

If you can find anything to write about the people in question and not just their crimes, then be my guest. However, please consult WP:BLP1E and WP:BIO and show how they are notable according to those guidelines first. Just being a convicted pirate is not a guarantee of notability.--TM 19:45, 24 March 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of William Chilufya[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article William Chilufya has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Article about a footballer who fails WP:GNG and who has not played in a fully pro league.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Sir Sputnik (talk) 05:37, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

New general articles on Namibia[edit]

Hi TM, just to let you know about new articles that could do with more input:

  1. I created Health care in Namibia after collecting some facts that I didn't know where to put; this is still very stubby and needs expansion
  2. I also created Taxation in Namibia after several accounts (possibly of the same person) kept adding this information to the Namibia article where I thought it was out of place. I do not find it particularly interesting but several African "Taxation in..." articles exist. Needs a lot of expansion.
  3. Recently Cost of living in Namibia was created; I had my first run-in with the creator who maintains I was biting him. Maybe you can have a look at it and provide an opinion. Maybe I was indeed a bit tense.

Thanks in advance, Pgallert (talk) 18:25, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

I will gladly check them out when I receive more internet access, which will hopefully be next week. Thanks for the heads up.--TM 19:13, 8 April 2011 (UTC)

Nomination of EqualityMaine for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article EqualityMaine is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/EqualityMaine until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on good quality evidence, and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion template from the top of the article. SarekOfVulcan (talk) 12:01, 9 April 2011 (UTC)

Thanks![edit]

Peter Mweshihange[edit]

Hi TM, just to let you know: I expanded this and intend to submit it to DYK. Unfortunately, I cannot access any old New Era article online; Google lists it but once I click on it it's a totally different article. Do you experience the same problems? --Pgallert (talk) 18:34, 7 May 2011 (UTC)

That happens all of the time with New Era for some odd reason. I just search the site for the article title and find the new URL. Unfortunately, I know of no other way than manually searching. It looks great and I'll have another look at it tomorrow. Thank you!--TM 04:48, 8 May 2011 (UTC)

hi[edit]

hi

concerning your query. I do not write articles based on my opinions. People (from the public) supply me with the information and i upload it as i get it. The problem is some dont supply me with relevant references due to the fact that we dont have enough site publications. My job on wikipedia is to keep these articles clean as they are always vandalized, and update them accordingly based on the information i receive from the public.

Give me enough time, so that i get this references right.

thank you for your cooperation

Adding a PROD is not a sign of bad faith[edit]

Adding a prod at any time is not a sign of bad faith. This guy received 6 (yes just six) votes. Going to take it to AfD. Mtking (talk) 03:05, 9 May 2011 (UTC)

I would urge you to look at the sources and not the vote totals. There are a number of independent sources which cover the person in detail. I would say he is notable as an activist and obviously not because of his small vote total.--TM 03:11, 9 May 2011 (UTC)

Categories for discussion nomination of Category:Worcester, Massachusetts city councillors[edit]

Category:Worcester, Massachusetts city councillors, which you created, has been nominated for discussion. If you would like to participate in the discussion, you are invited to add your comments at the category's entry on the Categories for discussion page. Thank you. LeSnail (talk) 06:02, 12 May 2011 (UTC)

Cullen T.M. McGough[edit]

No need to be nasty- he's a real candidate. The media hasn't been entirely on top on potential candidates as there are many to choose from, but he gave a hint about his intentions last week. He also started the FB group for 'the mayor of portland maine'. http://www.facebook.com/home.php?sk=group_219611158065947 I know FB isn't truth, but I think he should be included to be fair, just like other people on the 'potential' list. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Bubblesthekittycat (talkcontribs) 03:15, 17 May 2011 (UTC)

Until a reliable source covers his potential candidacy, it has no place on Wikipedia. I didn't mean to be nasty but you should not add information to Wikipedia which is not reliably sourced under any circumstances. I appreciate you waiting to add the information.--TM 03:51, 17 May 2011 (UTC)

Intros[edit]

Check out this discussion that I just started: Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Baseball#Player page introductions. Please don't change any other intros before the discussion is over and just let them stay as is for now.--Giants27(T|C) 02:47, 28 May 2011 (UTC)

I'm not going to get into an edit war with you at Jose Bautista. I asked you not to change the intros from their original state, all I did was restore it to its original state.--Giants27(T|C) 03:50, 28 May 2011 (UTC)
Neither will I engage in an edit war. But to declare anything on Wikipedia an "original state" is incorrect. It is just the version you prefer.--TM 03:51, 28 May 2011 (UTC)
Actually, no. By "original state", I mean the state you found the article in. Until there's a formal consensus, it's best to just leave them be.--Giants27(T|C) 14:06, 28 May 2011 (UTC)

José Bautista[edit]

Pleas explain how putting in a sourced statement about what an announcer said about Bautista is vandalism? Kingjeff (talk) 00:00, 31 May 2011 (UTC)

Baseball commentators speculate on many things. Unless it is a proven fact and not just speculation, it is a serious violation of BLP. See WP:BLPGOSSIP. Also, if you revert the article one more time, you will be in violation of WP:3R and will likely be blocked from editing. You may even be in violation right now. Chose your edits widely.--TM 00:04, 31 May 2011 (UTC)
Please see WP:NOTVAND. Vandalism means deliberately attempting to damage a page, such as by deleting entire sections or by adding swear words. When an editor disagrees with an edit it's called a content dispute. Noformation Talk 07:07, 2 June 2011 (UTC)

There is no violation. Fact is he said that. Please don't try and give me a lesson on Wikipedia policy. And you forgot to mention how it's within a 24 hour period. Kingjeff (talk) 00:07, 31 May 2011 (UTC)

Whether he said it or not is not in question. You seem to be a longtime Wikipedia editor and should realize that repeating hearsay is not allowed. There is no need to be rude.--TM 00:09, 31 May 2011 (UTC)

But fact is he said that. It's sourced that he said that. At that point hearsay is irrelevant. Please show me where I violated 3RR like you accused me of. It's not showing up in the page's history. Kingjeff (talk) 00:14, 31 May 2011 (UTC)

I am not going to keep arguing. I said you 'may' have violated. It seems you went to the precipice but did not make a 4th revert. A commentator's speculation is not a reliable source. Show a serious news article or an investigation by MLB and then it is appropriate. Until then, it is a major violation and I hope you won't try to re-add it tomorrow.--TM 00:18, 31 May 2011 (UTC)

Actually, the source is the National Post; a very credible source. Let me remind you that in the edit summary you stated "you are definitely violating BLP and 3R." So, it's a little more than "may". Kingjeff (talk) 00:24, 31 May 2011 (UTC)

I see you will go to every extent to get your own way. Kingjeff (talk) 00:37, 31 May 2011 (UTC)

re: Danny Hultzen[edit]

Ok here's the deal. It's another one of those rediculus categories that wikipedia has. "This guy played pitcher in college." "He pitched in the minor leauges". Ok. I really don't find that category useful at all, and you can tell by how many pages are categorized in that area that it isn't useful. We have a Major League category with that so the "Baseball pitchers" category is really unnecessary for Érik Bédard because he already has Category:Major League Baseball pitchers on his page and it's completely unnecessary for Nick Franklin because he's not a pitcher. I don't know man, I just find that cat. useless. – Michael (talk) 16:37, 7 June 2011 (UTC)

Well, it is not useless. It is for pitchers who have not played in the Major Leagues. Personally, I find the MLB position categories to be useless. We don't have Category:National Football League quarterbacks afterall. Anyway, I'd appreciate it if you did not remove it since it is correct and useful.--TM 16:58, 7 June 2011 (UTC)

Caution[edit]

Hi Namiba. I noticed you've gotten into a bit of an edit-war over a category definition. I've looked at the history of the dispute, and the opposing views, and I must urge you to be extremely cautious here. The category is one specifically designed for (mostly) living people; as such, WP:BLP applies. Having a category that labels someone as something they are not is taken very seriously on Wikipedia, as you know. I recommend you either accept a narrower (and more accurate definition) of the applicable category members, or get a strong consensus via an RFC or some similar mechanism before attempting to expand the definition. Jayjg (talk) 03:01, 12 June 2011 (UTC)

So you are trying to imply that an Israeli who moved into the Sinai Peninsula or Gaza Strip during the Israeli occupation of those territories was not a settler? The definition favored by you and other promoting that agenda purposefully ignores that fact. If you have a problem with the truth, I suggest you take it to RFC.--TM 23:26, 12 June 2011 (UTC)
"Closely affiliated with" is an extremely problematic phrase, from a WP:BLP perspective. I'm not promoting an "agenda"; rather, I've given you good advice regarding WP:BLP. I recommend you revert yourself, because this would more likely have to be dealt with as a BLP or administrative matter. Jayjg (talk) 03:36, 15 June 2011 (UTC)

Universidade Agostinho Neto[edit]

Hello Namiba: I suppose you created the article on this university. I have just updated it, rather superficially, and wonder whether you have at your disposal sources which would allow you to add some more flesh to the bones? Aflis (talk) 15:39, 18 June 2011 (UTC)

Hebron[edit]

But how can we have both? Chesdovi (talk) 16:01, 28 June 2011 (UTC)

One is of obvious importance to include in the infobox (the municipal seal of a city) and the other is much more peripheral (the settler's seal). Place the settler one with that info, but it is HIGHLY POV to include it as the seal representing the largest city in the West Bank.--TM 16:27, 28 June 2011 (UTC)
It represents to Israeli section of Hebron. To have just one seal is misleading. Chesdovi (talk) 16:32, 28 June 2011 (UTC)
The Israeli occupied section of Hebron is minuscule in comparison to the Palestinian section. To show both as the same is misleading.--TM 16:35, 28 June 2011 (UTC)
Size does not matter here. The fact is that the infobox on Hebron has one seal belonging to the PNA and not the other belongong to the extra-PA zone. Seals of both need to be shown in the infobox. Chesdovi (talk) 16:44, 28 June 2011 (UTC)

Category:Minor league baseball players[edit]

As it says in the category, the category is intended for people who are specifically minor league players. The specific team categories do not replace the use of this category. – Muboshgu (talk) 19:38, 2 August 2011 (UTC)

There is no such thing a 'minor league player'. There are players who play or have played on minor league teams, but those are 99.99% of all professional baseball players. Category:Minor league baseball players by team is a subcat of Category:Minor league baseball players and thus it is extremely unhelpful to include that category AND the team categories. It is like including Category:American people for every US citizen.--TM 19:44, 2 August 2011 (UTC)
To me, it's a useful way of categorizing players based on the idea that its their minor league career that is most notable about them, either because they never made the majors or because they were particularly notable as a minor leaguer. Anyway, this is the way the category has been for years, so simply removing people from it isn't the way to go. This should be brought up at WT:BASEBALL. – Muboshgu (talk) 20:49, 2 August 2011 (UTC)
Actually, it was relatively recently overpopulated by a couple of users. I will probably take it to WT:CAT because the way you are categorizing is not the way categorization is generally done in my opinion.--TM 22:35, 2 August 2011 (UTC)

please be careful[edit]

Please be careful labeling good faith edits vandalism. This [1] was 100% true, although unsourced.[2]--Cube lurker (talk) 19:16, 3 August 2011 (UTC)

Edit-warring at Roy Hibbert[edit]

Please stop edit-warring at Roy Hibbert. Because he is a living person, any information in the article must be verified by reliable sources, especially controversial information. The subject of the article is publicly complaining about the nationality being listed Wikipedia page, rightfully so, since the sources don't confirm what you've been edit-warring to put back. I've noted this at the BLP noticeboard: Wikipedia:BLPN#Roy Hibbert. First Light (talk) 22:56, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

Template:FrenchGuiana-mayor-stub and Category:African mayor stubs[edit]

I see you did a half job with {{FrenchGuiana-mayor-stub}} - you removed it from Category:African mayor stubs, but didn't add it to Category:South American politician stubs. While I understand that you didn't necessarily know for sure that this other category exists, you should have either checked if it exists, and seeing that it does and that the category lists other templates but not that one, added it yourself; or else dropped me a note about it, to make sure that I know it should be added there. עוד מישהו Od Mishehu 08:08, 14 August 2011 (UTC)

In all honesty, it is ridiculous to have a template like that in the first place. There will never be more than a couple of mayors in French Guiana with articles ever, so I wouldn't be criticizing others for fixing your edits.--TM 03:53, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

Thank you![edit]

Thank you for the barnstar! :-) It's nice to know that my vandal-fighting hasn't gone unnoticed. Likewise, thank you for all the great work you do here. Best, BMRR (talk) 03:32, 22 August 2011 (UTC)

Rensenbrink-Satin connection[edit]

Namiba, thanks so much for creating a respectable Wikipedia page for John Rensenbrink, and for immediately linking the reference to him on my Mark Satin page. John is one of the true Good Guys in the early history of the U.S. Greens. It's great to see him here, and I hope you can find a picture of his craggy Maine face to post in the infobox. - Babel41 (talk) 00:16, 30 August 2011 (UTC)

Alshon Jeffery[edit]

Yeah I'm biased because I'm a fan, but everything I updated on his page is based in verifiable fact. The references for all the stats were already there, but I just added in-line citations for you.

...And calling a 5-catch 92-yard performance "characteristic" isn't even doing the guy justice. He usually catches 8-10 for about 115 yards and at least one score--check his stats. I think I tempered my bias quite nicely with that phrasing. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Holtmf (talkcontribs) 13:24, 8 September 2011 (UTC)

Removed bias? I really don't understand what you mean. A 24-game reception streak is a laudable feat, and I provided references to prove that he has one. You're the biased one, bro. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Holtmf (talkcontribs) 22:58, 8 September 2011 (UTC)

Marcus Lattimore[edit]

I agree with your removal of the 2011 section (which wasn't my authorship) as it was largely unsubstantiated. Lattimore did, however, gain 15-20 pounds (cf http://rivals.yahoo.com/ncaa/football/recruiting/player-Marcus-Lattimore-78023 and http://espn.go.com/college-football/player/_/id/501517/marcus-lattimore) in the offseason and was a recognized leader in the weight room throughout the Spring and Fall (see http://southcarolina.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=1187793 and http://southcarolina.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=1194701 [premium access required]).

The weight might not be worth publishing, but his Heisman candidacy almost surely is. He opened in the initial Vegas books with 7/2 odds to win it, behind only Andrew Luck. All subsequent lists from reputable sources have included him toward the top, e.g. http://www.cbssports.com/collegefootball/heisman

I'm already in the doghouse for defending Jeffery's streak, so I won't make any changes to that page at this time, but if my boy Marcus gets a bad rap in the name of journalistic neutrality, I'm afraid I'll have to step in. Holtmf (talk) 00:46, 9 September 2011 (UTC)

Give the facts, not the bias. Cited facts, like those above, are what we need. Please add them, just don't be congratulatory or promotional.--TM 00:59, 9 September 2011 (UTC)

See that's where I have a problem. I know I'm supposed to be unbiased, so I try really hard to be. But where do I draw the line? Let me illustrate.

Jeffery was recognized as the go-to guy in 2009 in the game against Kentucky. Including and since that game, he has played in 23 games in which he caught 134 balls for 2311 yards. That is an average of 5.83 catches for 100.5 yards per game. I called a 5 catch, 92 yard performance "characteristic". Sure I'm a fan, but that is actually below his average. Calling it characteristic is as much of an understatement as you're going to get out of me. Sure I could use completely neutral language like Eagles247 did in the end, but check your facts before you point fingers, please. Holtmf (talk) 04:11, 9 September 2011 (UTC)

If you cannot write in an unbiased manner, you probably should consider your role on Wikipedia. If writing in a neutral voice is that difficult, you can always improve Wikipedia in other ways, like adding missing categories, stub-sorting and checking for grammar, all of which are important and do not include adding your POV to articles.

Here is an example of neutral language: "Jeffery opened the 2011 season with a 5 catch, 92 yard performance against Kentucky. It extended his consecutive catch streak to 24 games." The terms like "characteristic" and "explosive", when added without a source alongside, are POV and will be removed.--TM 04:17, 9 September 2011 (UTC)

I stand by my belief that "characteristic" (1. pertaining to, constituting, or indicating the character or peculiar quality of a person or thing; typical; distinctive: Red and gold are the characteristic colors of autumn.) is only POV if not based in fact, but clearly you disagree. Could I have said typical? Run-of-the-mill? No adjectives whatsoever, then? Fine. If I came up on a red light in the middle of nowhere in the dead of night with clear visibility and nobody coming, I'd run it. You wouldn't. I can write within your box if I must, but please don't recommend that I be blocked for a mere difference of opinion Holtmf (talk) 04:26, 9 September 2011 (UTC)

I brought up the block issue because you had reverted the page so many times. Read Wikipedia:NPOV#Impartial_tone and the rest of that guideline before continuing to edit then try to follow it.--TM 04:37, 9 September 2011 (UTC)

Morgan Newton[edit]

Morgan Newton is not a back up quarterback. He started in a bowl game as a true freshman. He started for half of his sophomore season. He is currently the starting quarterback for Kentucky this season, as noted in the "Current SEC Starting Quarterbacks" box that someone else put on his article. He has started in two bowl games and, though still an underclassman, been a starting SEC quarterback in three different seasons. That's more notable than many other athletes, including football players, who have articles on Wikipedia.

Speedy deletion nomination of List of Presidents of the Maine Senate[edit]

A tag has been placed on List of Presidents of the Maine Senate, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a redirect to an article talk page, file description page, file talk page, MediaWiki page, MediaWiki talk page, category talk page, portal talk page, template talk page, help talk, user page, user talk or special page from the main/article space.

If you can fix the redirect to point to a mainspace page, please do so and remove the speedy deletion tag. However, please do not remove the speedy deletion tag unless you are fixing the redirect. If you think the redirect should be retained as is for some reason, contest the deletion by clicking on the button that looks like this: Speedy delete contest button.png which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate). Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the article's talk page directly to give your reasons. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. DASHBot (talk) 12:04, 19 September 2011 (UTC)

Issam Nassar[edit]

I saw that you removed the WP:PROD from Issam Nassar. Do you think that he passes the WP:ACADEMIC notability test? Given the current information in the article, I believe the article should be nominated for deletion. Do you have any more information about the subject's notability? Pburka (talk) 03:29, 26 September 2011 (UTC)

I'd say he passes WP:ACADEMIC under criterion 7, "The person has made substantial impact outside academia in their academic capacity.". I added a source from Scholars for Peace in the Middle East and here is one from the Institute for Middle East Understanding.--TM 12:38, 26 September 2011 (UTC)

Namibian Census[edit]

Hi TM, you might have guessed it from your watchlist: I got hold of an abridged 2001 National Census report for Namibia. If you need data from it, just let me know. --Pgallert (talk) 20:09, 27 September 2011 (UTC)

Is there census date for Okonjima? I think one of your students began the article a few days ago and it was on my wish list so I noticed and wikified it, but it is lacking.--TM 12:44, 1 October 2011 (UTC)

Re:File:Lynne Williams.jpeg[edit]

Hi Namiba, if the image was given to you by Lynne Williams, then you shouldn't have claimed "own work" and author=User:Namiba. Anyway, you need to check 1st with Mrs. Williams whether the image was shot by herself, which is somewat unlikely. If it was not shot by herself, then she has to check with the photographer whether he agrees to the image being released under a free license. If it was shot by herself, then you need to prepare a permission text for her. Go to here, copy the boxed "Declaration of consent for all inquiries", enter the filename and the name of the license of her choice and mail that all to her and ask her to read, date and sign it and to mail it back from her office/official email address to permissions-commons@wikimedia.org. After she gave you her agreement to do that, you may drop me a note on Commons, so that I can temporarily undelete the image. The final approval will then come from the OTRS volunteer who handles the permission. --18:20, 18 October 2011 (UTC)

You violated 1rr at Category:Israeli settlers. Kindly self-revert.--brewcrewer (yada, yada) 21:28, 13 November 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads-up. I assume you are also leaving at notice for User:GHcool, right?--TM 21:32, 13 November 2011 (UTC)
