Anwar Shahjahan[edit]

Hi, you have told me you have removed a link, i was wondering which link it was and for what reason

thanks — Preceding unsigned comment added by BangladeshJourn (talkcontribs) 23:34, 2 January 2017 (UTC)

BangladeshJourn, if I remove a link it is often because it is an external link (off Wikipdia) 'embedded' in the text, which is generally not allowed. Often such links are basically 'promotional', as they add nothing to the article (See also WP:ELNO) Where possible I will convert the link to a reference. Sometimes every instance of a related page is wikilinked, which is unnecessary and discouraged. 'Wiki' linking of common terms is also unnecessary and discouraged.
• For example here among other edits, I removed an embedded external link to 'Golapganj Helping Hands (UK)', which was linked to http://ghhuk.org/about-us, and made it into a very basic reference.220 of Borg 00:25, 3 January 2017 (UTC)
Oh sorry i was not aware, but thank you for the information — Preceding unsigned comment added by BangladeshJourn (talkcontribs) 16:05, 3 January 2017 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Roggie Bear[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Roggie Bear requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator.

Rennie Ellis & Brummels[edit]

Hi Borg, Yes your edit is correct, the gallery was Brummels Gallery before he took it over. Great to see Rennie's entry expanding; thanks for your work! Jamesmcardle(talk) 06:16, 15 February 2017 (UTC)

References[edit]

Thank you for telling me what I already know. You can feel free to do what you'd like without asking me. Tripp155 (talk) 04:57, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

Thank you for the info. I am not trying to be rude at all in my response. Tripp155 (talk) 05:23, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

April 2017[edit]

A page you created has been nominated for deletion as an attack page, according to section G10 of the criteria for speedy deletion.

Do not create pages that attack, threaten, or disparage their subject or any other entity. Attack pages and files are not tolerated by Wikipedia, and users who create or add such material may be blocked from editing. Grayfell (talk) 06:41, 23 April 2017 (UTC)

You might have stated that it was Moldylocks a redirect. I'm sure a source can be found for that nickname. Ah, here's one. [1], though i dont know if it WP:RS.
I do though take offence that you accuse me of creating an 'attack page'. 220 of Borg 06:53, 23 April 2017 (UTC)
No, I don't think that actually establishes justification for the redirect. As it's pejorative, I doubt it would pass BLP in any event. Dlohcierekim 08:32, 23 April 2017 (UTC)
Dlohcierekim Thanks for the input. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I'd get accused of creating an attack page, let alone for a redirect! Face-confused.svg Face-sad.svg 220 of Borg 04:53, 24 April 2017 (UTC)
I know what your mean. It's just we're pretty tetchy about perception with BLP's. In the past, there have been threats of lawsuits. At least one editor was sued for liable, after using material from a major news source in Britain, so if we are to err, it will be on the side of over caution. Dlohcierekim 05:15, 24 April 2017 (UTC)

WP:BLP[edit]

Please note the WP:BLP policy: "Contentious material about living persons (or, in some cases, recently deceased) that is unsourced or poorly sourced—whether the material is negative, positive, neutral, or just questionable—should be removed immediately and without waiting for discussion." The material you added to Talk:Identity Evropa and Talk:2017 Berkeley protests was potentially defamatory, and so I've suppressed it. You also seem to have added information about this person's identity that potentially constitutes doxxing. Do not re-add it without a much more reliable source to support the claims.
