Henry King (musician)[edit]

I don't know if you saw my comments on the talk page, or whether you think some of them can be incorporated into the article. It's always a problem with these more obscure people as to whether primary sources and less reliable (but probably uncontentious) sources should be included, so I'll leave it to you.

DYK for Henry King (musician)[edit]

Updated DYK query.svg On 4 July 2016, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Henry King (musician), which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that Henry King, the bandleader of the Burns and Allen radio program, received special dispensation for his marriage? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Henry King (musician). You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Henry King (musician)), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

Problem[edit]

Hello 78.26, I have a problem while putting colors on text and background. Can u Please help me to know the code of different colors. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tiger Gang (talkcontribs) 09:15, 8 July 2016 (UTC)

Hi Tiger Gang. You might try Help:Wiki_markup#Coloring_and_highlighting_text, but I'm really not the expert you're looking for. If this doesn't show what you're looking for, you might try Wikipedia:Help desk. I hope that's helpful. 78.26 (spin me / revolutions) 15:59, 8 July 2016 (UTC)

..Thanks for your suggestion. Tiger Gang (talk) 16:24, 8 July 2016 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thank you for the kind note regarding work on the record labels. I'm a beginner trying to make not an overwhelming number of mistakes. Much to learn, though, much to read in the documentation.

NEM KOSAL[edit]

Hi, thanks for acting on that CSD tag. The author has just re-created it again, unfortunately. It wouldn't be so bad if he wasn't just copying in text or infoboxes from other articles, then after a few minutes, deleting it all and copying in from another article. I tried to get him to use his sandbox for this, to no avail. CrowCaw 16:34, 14 July 2016 (UTC)

It appears to be a completely non-notable person trying to create an article about himself, using existing articles as templates. Perhaps he is confusing Wikipedia with linkedin or facebook. If this gets created again, it should be deleted and salted, methinks. All the best, 78.26 (spin me / revolutions) 16:37, 14 July 2016 (UTC)
@Crow:, I'm going to be truly offline for awhile. Thanks for all your diligence on this. 78.26 (spin me / revolutions) 17:03, 14 July 2016 (UTC)
  • Any time, thanks for your repeated eyes on this up to now! CrowCaw 17:06, 14 July 2016 (UTC)

Hi from MML Ruler[edit]

Hi. You might remember me as the newbie who made unconstructive edits. I'm really sorry about that. Anyway, I want to make an article about Tyler Pappas aka Logdotzip but I'm it may get deleted really fast. Can you help me? I know you could, since you're an admin. Thanks. Bye!--MML Ruler (talk) 15:15, 25 July 2016 (UTC)

Hi MML Ruler, thanks for dropping by and writing. Your best bet is to start the article in the Draft namespace area. This will allow you some time to develop it without fear of it being immediately deleted. When you have done so, let me know and I'll be happy to come over and take a look at it. If you have questions, you know how to reach me! All the best, 78.26 (spin me / revolutions) 15:38, 25 July 2016 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Thank you for telling me what not to do, after I made some unconstructive edits, and being as kind enough as not blocking me since I was new. Thanks 78.26! MML Ruler (talk) 15:18, 25 July 2016 (UTC)
Why, thank you! You're more than welcome, and I look forward to seeing all the articles you have written and/or improved. 78.26 (spin me / revolutions) 15:46, 25 July 2016 (UTC)

Thanks 78.26 again![edit]

Removed Page[edit]

Hi,

I saw that you removed a recent created page. What specifically can I do improve this article. Rwhanco (talk) 14:39, 26 July 2016 (UTC)

Hi Rwhanco, thanks for writing. I will try to state this gently, but the page in your user area was deleted because it was blatant advertising. Statements such as "Our original software product" have no place in an encyclopedia, not even in user spaces where much greater latitude is given. Before you re-create this, please read our notability standards, and review WP:NPOV and WP:NOTADVERTISING. I hope that helps. 78.26 (spin me / revolutions) 15:26, 26 July 2016 (UTC)

If you are bored and like sock puzzles[edit]

Hello my friend! See here for a string of accounts I blocked. (Do you have that script that makes blocked usernames appear in pale, italic, strikethrough?) If you are bored and good at puzzles, please feel free to give your opinion on who is tied to who. Their registration times and edits tell a tale, but it is inconclusive to me. If you have something better to do, do that better thing. :) Best, Anna Frodesiak (talk) 20:48, 27 July 2016 (UTC)

I'm really not good at this type of thing (see my RfA), but I'll try to have a go at this tonight (like plain oatmeal, it will be good for me), as this will take some in-depth comparisons, so I can tell my Quack from my Qvack. 78.26 (spin me / revolutions) 21:24, 27 July 2016 (UTC)
Thanks! And really, it is fine to pass on this one. It may just be wee meatpups messing about and just a bit of watchlisting and reverting could handle it. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 01:26, 28 July 2016 (UTC)
@Anna Frodesiak: in my oh-so-wise and experienced opinion, Jade sone9, 209.171.88.222, and Kpoparina are the same editor. It seems highly unlikely that even meatpuppets would stick to adding exactly the same information. I've seen groups disrupt articles in a coordinated manner before, but they usually have different ways of doing it. This editor is insistent that the subject is of Native American and European descent. Too specific. 115.178.26.170 and previously reverted editors within the last 10 days are not the same editor. That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it, until given the slightest shred of evidence otherwise, ahem. Helpful? 78.26 (spin me / revolutions) 01:34, 28 July 2016 (UTC)
And what do you think of this? Is YurisFatass Jade sone9? Anna Frodesiak (talk) 01:42, 28 July 2016 (UTC)
Maybe, trending towards likely, but I'm not sure. I don't understand K-Pop, J-Pop, or what motivates the fanbase. Is ethnicity (particularly a variant from the norm) an important part of the group member's biography to them? 78.26 (spin me / revolutions) 01:49, 28 July 2016 (UTC)
I don't know. I don't follow it either. But, my guess is that the fans are quite connected. Maybe this is a social media collusion or maybe just some blog or website that raised the heritage thing and unrelated people all came here to make changes. Anyhow, thanks so much for checking. Sorry to bother you with this one. I will keep an eye on the articles and hopefully won't have to protect. And if you're wondering why I blocked so fast with such little warning, it is because buried vandalism is such a pain. I compensated with personal notes offering a trade of an explanation for an unblock. No takers. Best, Anna Frodesiak (talk) 01:55, 28 July 2016 (UTC)
I think your actions are, as usual, exemplary. If I were to see a similar edit on a K-Pop article, I would do exactly the same, at this point. 78.26 (spin me / revolutions) 01:58, 28 July 2016 (UTC)
You are too kind. :) Anna Frodesiak (talk) 02:10, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

Revdel[edit]

I took the liberty of doing what I thought you were trying to do. To hide something, you need to revdel all the revisions in which it was contained. BethNaught (talk) 21:43, 27 July 2016 (UTC)

I was afraid of that, was hoping to do it in such a way to (publicly) preserve the edit history of everyone else. Thanks much, you are always most welcome here! 78.26 (spin me / revolutions) 22:02, 27 July 2016 (UTC)

Request on 15:16:42, 4 August 2016 for assistance on AfC submission by JDoober[edit]


Hello,

I was wondering if you had any suggestions for my article, whether it be more third party sources or suggestions on how to fix my language so it's acceptable. I'm open to any and all comments! Thanks!

Jdoober

JDoober (talk) 15:16, 4 August 2016 (UTC)

Yes, you definitely need more third party sources, but not any third-party source can or should be used to establish notability. Please read identifying reliable sources. I can hardly emphasize enough how much you need to change the tone of your draft. A sentence like "CeliaKaye.com is a resource for the most current, user-friendly and family-friendly information available" should appear as promotional even to the most biased toward the product. Almost every sentence within the draft is slanted towards to topic, rather than being written in a disinterested, dispassionate tone. I hope that helps. 78.26 (spin me / revolutions) 16:09, 4 August 2016 (UTC)

Wikipedia:WikiProject Frank Sinatra[edit]

Hi, you're invited to join this. A loosely coordinated project, but one which I think is really needed to tie Sinatra-related material together, as he created his own world in a way. I think it's something which has long been needed, so hope you're interested and sign up!♦ Dr. Blofeld 09:55, 5 August 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 9[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited The Boll Weevil Song and 11 Other Great Hits, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Frankie and Johnny (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Juozas Ambrazevičius[edit]

Hello,

I did change a page (merge of original and my text) but changes were deleted since there was a question of copyright ? How to write my own text (no copyright) and merge it with the original text ? Or do I have to sart a new topic with the same name ? Write a new chapter ? Re-write the total chapter in my own words and thus delete (part of) the original text ? I'm a bit confused.

Thanks for your help ! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Piet snotterbel (talkcontribs) 16:12, 10 August 2016 (UTC)

Hi Piet. Thanks for writing. I'm sorry this has been confusing to you, but don't give up! You need to figure out what from that source you want to add to the article, that is not already in the article. Then you need to add that information, but it has to be in your own words, the wording can't be copied from the source, because it violates copyright laws in various jurisdictions which will expose both yourself and Wikipedia to potential lawsuit, and we don't want that! So if the source says "Mary was the possessor of a dimunitative juvenile Ovis aries, the reflective qualities of it's coat was similar to that of water in frozen crystalline form" you could write this in your own words, i.e. "Mary had a little lamb, it's fleece was white as snow." I hope that helps. 78.26 (spin me / revolutions) 16:19, 10 August 2016 (UTC)

OK I understand what you mean, but if the text that was deleted is already my own text ? How can I certify this ? If I didn't publish it elsewhere, how to prove it's mine ? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Piet snotterbel (talkcontribs) 16:49, 10 August 2016 (UTC)

I'll have to admit I might not be able to help. How long ago did you add the wording to Wikipedia, that was recently deleted? Do you have any theories as to how the website acquired your wording for its own use? 78.26 (spin me / revolutions) 20:03, 10 August 2016 (UTC)

Penske PC-12[edit]

Hello,

I'm requesting that you can do lots of reseach of the PC-12 please? 92.21.252.120 (talk) 19:59, 22 August 2016 (UTC)

Hi 92.21.252.120. (May I enthusiastically invite you to [[Wikipedia:Why create an account?|create an account?). I'm willing to help on the article, but although I'm an auto-racing fan, my focus tends to be on music articles. Do you have access to a library with some books on the history of open-wheel racing in the United States? I found the article compelling, regarding the reason for this model's discontinuance. I'm going to also add your draft to a couple of wikipedia projects, and perhaps some other editors more familiar with the subject will be able to help you out. All the best, 78.26 (spin me / revolutions) 20:12, 22 August 2016 (UTC)

Draft: Penske PC-12[edit]

Hello, I spotted your ES at the PC-12 page. Unfortunately this is not a new editor but one that has been disruptive of Wiki Project F1 articles over the past year and has now moved on to Indy Cars. His creations are usually badly written, fail notability (as I feel this one does) and are frequently found to be copy-vios. He has no concept of any sort of guidelines and will remove any advice or warnings (and maintenance templates) which he doesn't like or understand. He has used approximately 150 IPs in the last year but has also recently created an account. Best of luck if you try to help him out! Eagleash (talk) 20:59, 22 August 2016 (UTC)

A kitten for you![edit]

Kitten (06) by Ron.jpg

hi 78.26, just to let you know that an article that you deleted has an afd running at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Liv Morgan match statistics.

Coolabahapple (talk) 15:11, 23 August 2016 (UTC)

I made a mistake in the edit summary (didn't check what the bot gave me). I didn't delete the article (the AfD is running its course), I deleted the re-direct. Thanks for kitten, I'm a cat person. 78.26 (spin me / revolutions) 16:22, 23 August 2016 (UTC)
