Speedy deletion nomination of Faculty of Medicine, University of Kelaniya[edit]

Hello Obi2canibe,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Faculty of Medicine, University of Kelaniya for deletion, because it appears to duplicate an existing Wikipedia article, University of Kelaniya#Faculty of Medicine.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions.

New Page Review - Newsletter No.4[edit]

Hello Obi2canibe,
Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Since rolling out the right in November, just 6 months ago, we now have 444 reviewers, but the backlog is still mysteriously growing fast. If every reviewer did just 55 reviews, the 22,000 backlog would be gone, in a flash, schwoop, just like that!

But do remember: Rather than speed, quality and depth of patrolling and the use of correct CSD criteria are essential to good reviewing. Do not over-tag. Make use of the message feature to let the creator know about your maintenance tags. See the tutorial again HERE. Get help HERE.

Stay up to date with recent new page developments and have your say, read THIS PAGE.

Burning of Jaffna Library[edit]

Two images are getting removed by a bot due to I don't fully understand why reasons, can you help me in figuring out the needs as those pictures are essential in telling the story. The bot left a few messages on my talk page, I reverted the removal as it could lead to deletion of the hard to find images. Thanks Kanatonian (talk) 20:04, 29 May 2017 (UTC)

@Kanatonian: I've added fair use rationales for both images - copyright requirements have changed since you uploaded the images ten years ago. Hopefully that should be enough to prevent deletion.--Obi2canibe (talk) 11:53, 30 May 2017 (UTC)
Thank you, cant imagine its been 10 years :) Kanatonian (talk) 18:58, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

List of University of Jaffna people[edit]

You have removed 3 reputed alumni of U of Jaffna from the list. Could you give me a reason? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Aruppillai (talkcontribs) 08:03, 1 June 2017 (UTC)

@Aruppillai: First of all, my apologies for not providing the reason in the edit summary - I normally do, I don't know what happened in this case.
They were removed because they were, in my opinion, not notable according to Wikipedia policies and guidelines. If you believe that they are notable you should create articles for those three individuals and see if they stand up to scrutiny by the Wikipedia community.--Obi2canibe (talk) 12:53, 1 June 2017 (UTC)

Hello Obi2canibe, thank you for your efforts reviewing new pages!
Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Backlog update:

  • The new page backlog is currently at 18,511 pages. We have worked hard to decrease from over 22,000, but more hard work is needed! Please consider reviewing even just a few pages a a day.
  • Some editors are committing to work specifically on patrolling new pages on 15 July. If you have not reviewed new pages in a while, this might be a good time to be involved. Please remember that quality of patrolling is more important than quantity, that the speedy deletion criteria should be followed strictly, and that ovetagging for minor issues should be avoided.

Technology update:

  • Several requests have been put into Phabractor to increase usability of the New Pages Feed and the Page Curation toolbar. For more details or to suggest improvements go to Wikipedia:Page Curation/Suggested improvements
  • The tutorial has been updated to include links to the following useful userscripts. If you were not aware of them, they could be useful in your efforts reviewing new pages:

                P.S RESTORE MY EDIT.YOU IDIOT.  — Preceding unsigned comment added by Daham jayarathna (talkcontribs) 11:09, 16 July 2017 (UTC) 
@Daham jayarathna: If you wish to continue to edit Wikipedia you need to follow its rules. You removed content without providing an edit summary which goes against good practice.
The content you removed may look promotional but was supported by reliable sources. You need to discuss this on the article's talk page prior to removing it.--Obi2canibe (talk) 11:16, 16 July 2017 (UTC)
