Sentence deleted[edit]


I see that you found my sentence regarding critics on the misogyny and homophobia non constructive. As a college professor of gender studies, I find it worrying that you should think so. Would you have deleted it if it had been about racism or other matters of the representation of diversity? Please get back to me.



Ps. Here are references from serious publications addressing the issues I mentioned in the sentence you deleted.

Hi. Unsourced material of the nature is added is typically vandalism, and you didn't include any sources in your edit. If you believe the material is constructive you should feel free to re-add, but you must include your references. See our verifiability policy for details.

All done! Thanks Ale_jrb! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:09, 20 January 2017 (UTC)

CSDH bug: Logging decline despite not declining[edit]

Hi Alex. Long time no see. I have recently dived back into WP and thus back into CSD work. Today, I noticed a bug with your still excellent CSDHelper script: The script does not check if the edit removing a speedy tag is successful before editing the speedy decline log. Thus this edit happened while another user actually had removed the tag before I clicked decline. Regards SoWhy 21:11, 30 January 2017 (UTC)

Hey! You're right, it's generally not very good at handling failures or unexpected events. I'll take a look. Ale_Jrbtalk 22:45, 30 January 2017 (UTC)

article deleted[edit]


Im translating in some language biographies about Albanian notable figures and i found that Gazmend Freitag article was deleted last time from you at English wiki. and it has dhe CSDH link. I check the German version of this article and i think is notable enough to have even the English version. So should i give it a try to recreate or it will be deleted again? --Margott (talk) 11:58, 14 February 2017 (UTC)
