Hi 2005! As a Steward I'm involved in the upcoming unification of all accounts organized by the Wikimedia Foundation (see m:Single User Login finalisation announcement).

In order to secure your name, I recommend you to create such account on your own by submitting your password on Special:MergeAccount and unifying your local accounts.

Allen Kessler[edit]

Greetings. I have not been active in quite some time on Wikipedia but noticed today that an article was created this week for Allen Kessler. Currently he still has no bracelets, no WPT wins, no 7 figure scores. He has won WSOPC rings. Being a tour grinder, he does have a boatload of cashes and over 3 million in prize earnings. The question is, is he done enough yet to be notable? -Pparazorback (talk) 04:32, 31 May 2016 (UTC)

In terms of victories he wouldn't be, but every BIO article has the inclusion criteria of simply having coverage in independent sources, and there are several articles where he is the focus. So, he is a personality that publications find interesting or quirky enough to cover... essentially he may be a "celebrity" who may not merit celebrity, but there are tons of articles about people like that in the encyclopedia. In general I favor having stuff over not having stuff, but I don't have a strong opinion about him having an article or not. 2005 (talk) 05:50, 31 May 2016 (UTC)
Not opposed to the existence of the article. Just didn't know how strict the project was on inclusion criteria as the way it is spelled out, he would not be notable. I used to be a fairly active editor years ago with over 5000 edits mostly dealing with WP:HOCKEY and remember the tons of AFD discussions there. Thanks -Pparazorback (talk) 07:05, 31 May 2016 (UTC)

[edit]

Good day! I doubt this is correct, but while messing about with a rep from a company who paid edits without disclosure, they claimed that in 2005 you created PokerStars while under their employ. Were you aware of this claim of theirs? Thank you, Vermont (talk) 21:45, 18 June 2018 (UTC)

I was not aware, it's not true (tell them my price is $1,000,000 an article so send it along any time), and I've been accused of working for at least a dozen of these companies whenever I remove some spammy or attack junk from these articles. 2005 (talk) 00:56, 19 June 2018 (UTC)
