Can You help me?[edit]

Hello, I heard that you have taken over the blocking authority of the user, User:Soccerfootballwiki. As you know, that user did refusal to respond on their talk page, refusal to discuss collaboratively in any way. And in Korean Wikipedia, He's doing the same thing. So, can you help me sign up for a Globan Ban for that user? Cause I'm not good at English. Thank you. --125.186.169.12 (talk) 13:13, 7 March 2018 (UTC)

Sorry but I am not involved in Bans. You can post a note at ANI. -- Alexf(talk) 13:16, 7 March 2018 (UTC)
Ok, Thank you for reply. --125.186.169.12 (talk) 13:23, 7 March 2018 (UTC)

If you haven't already, please extend school block to a range block.[edit]

You recently blocked 205.126.15.249. There is vandalism flying all over the place from IP addresses close to that. If possible, can you range block? John from Idegon (talk) 20:01, 7 March 2018 (UTC)

I do not normally do range blocks. Let's monitor and block~if needed. -- Alexf(talk) 20:02, 7 March 2018 (UTC)

deletion of reference added to disambiguation page[edit]

Hello. My addition to the astral planes (disambiguation) page is no different that the entry referring to a smashing pumpkin song or an adventure time episode. Why is my entry deleted? Please help. :/ — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bravo.charlie (talkcontribs) 01:39, 9 March 2018 (UTC)

I see you already have an answer to that question in your talk page. Please remember to sign your posts in talk pages by adding four tildes at the end. -- Alexf(talk) 02:00, 9 March 2018 (UTC)

Florence Arnold speedy deletion[edit]

My article on Florence Arnold was deleted. You cited notability as the problem. I will rectify this with sources. Can you return the draft to me? Thanks TheProfD (talk) 21:12, 9 March 2018 (UTC)

Do you have a link to the article you want? -- Alexf(talk) 23:04, 9 March 2018 (UTC)
Looking in here, the article must be Florence Arnold. The worse problem was copyvio. We cannot restore material, as it seems to be an exact copy of an external copyrighted source [1]. And since it is available there, there's no need to send it to you if you want to try again in your own words.
But based on the info there, I doubt she's notable -- see the criteria at WP:CREATIVE. DGG ( talk ) 21:01, 10 March 2018 (UTC)

I remind you that every professor with a named chair meets WP:PROF. DGG ( talk ) 15:40, 10 March 2018 (UTC)

Vandal continuing[edit]

You just blocked IP User:69.124.32.169. The user is continuing to vandalize under the user name Donnar60, obvious meant to be confusingly similar to my user name. Please check this to see if this vandal can be stopped before he(she) further edits. Thanks. Donner60 (talk) 02:22, 15 March 2018 (UTC)

The vandal has made no further edits after my message. I was concerned about the confusingly similar name but further warnings seem to have stopped the vandalism from that account. So it seems we can wait and see whether he has given up. Donner60 (talk) 07:39, 15 March 2018 (UTC)
I went ahead and reported the user name at UAA. Donner60 (talk) 08:10, 15 March 2018 (UTC)
AIV is the proper venue for timely action. Individual users may not be online at the moment. -- Alexf(talk) 10:55, 15 March 2018 (UTC)

People of color[edit]

Hi,

I don't think the page defined 'systemic racism' or evidenced it. Also, all people may experience racism. Happy to discuss how best to treat a difficult topic.

Regards — Preceding unsigned comment added by Phoarefan (talkcontribs) 17:07, 15 March 2018 (UTC)

A matter of opinion, and therein lies the issue. I am not an expert in the subject. All I am saying is you need proper sourcing instead of opinion. -- Alexf(talk) 20:53, 15 March 2018 (UTC)
I see where you're coming from - I agree opinion shouldn't form part of an article. I think that saying 'white people may experience racism', without meaning at all to suggest the frequency of it is the same between white and non-white people, should not need a source; if an article describes racism at all I'm guessing it would not need a source to demonstrate that racism exists.
The article uses the phrase 'systemic racism' without citing a source that evidences where systemic racism exists. I therefore think the article should not include the word 'systemic'. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Phoarefan (talkcontribs) 12:09, 16 March 2018 (UTC)
The place to discuss this is in the article's Talk Page. Please remember to sign your posts in talk pages by adding four tildes at the end. -- Alexf(talk) 15:53, 16 March 2018 (UTC)

I see - sorry, not very familiar with how to use talk pages etc, but since you reverted what I changed may I ask that you change it back? Unless there is good reason to think the points I've raised on your talk page supporting my changes aren't valid, in which case I'm happy sticking with what you changed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Phoarefan (talkcontribs) 16:20, 16 March 2018 (UTC)

As said (and I am not an expert on the subject), please discuss it and make your case in the article's Talk Page. That's where the people involved in that article will look for it and comment. Again, please remember to sign your posts in talk pages by adding four tildes at the end. -- Alexf(talk) 16:23, 16 March 2018 (UTC)

I understand - I'll go to the Talk Page. But to be clear, everything I wrote that you reverted will remain so? I think that is unfair seeing as I wrote a fact that is well-known (that people of all colours experience racism) and deleted a phrase that the article did not evidence (systemic racism). Not meaning to labor a point here, but not being an expert on the subject doesn't mean you can't see that I wrote something that was not an opinion.

Egg: 21:06, 17 March 2018‎ Alexf (talk | contribs)‎ . . (36,385 bytes) (-67)‎ . . (rm irrelevant)[edit]

What do you mean? --Neptuul (talk) 21:14, 18 March 2018 (UTC)

The page is about organic eggs, as a means of reproduction. Showing wooden painted eggs for a quasi-religious festival has little to do with this article. -- Alexf(talk) 21:32, 18 March 2018 (UTC)
Wooden? This are realy eggs, blown out. --Neptuul (talk) 21:41, 18 March 2018 (UTC)

New to the regulations, did I do something wrong with my user page? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Metroecho (talkcontribs) 16:29, 23 March 2018 (UTC)

Yes, advertising. You are lucky the account is still not blocked as it looks like it is in violation of the username policy. Please explain how it isn't. Please remember to sign your posts in talk pages by adding four tildes at the end. -- Alexf(talk) 16:46, 23 March 2018 (UTC)

Please cast an eye[edit]

Hi Alexf. You have blocked this guy twice already and he just doesn't stop with the unsourced genre additions. Would you be so kind as to browse these recent edits as my warnings don't seem to have much effect. Much appretiated. Robvanvee 16:46, 24 March 2018 (UTC)

Voicelogic spamming[edit]

The ringless voicemail page is getting routinely spammed by some IPs and by User:Navielle3, mostly by adding plugs for that company and their services. I keep removing their plugs, but they keep adding them back. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.221.21.33 (talk) 02:29, 25 March 2018 (UTC)

Keep watching, and report to AIV or ANI when appropriate. -- Alexf(talk) 13:35, 25 March 2018 (UTC)

This article was written by me, I am not spamming anything. This user keeps removing information about the legal trademark of the page, if it is wrong to put a legal trademark name then I apologize. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Navielle3 (talkcontribs) 21:28, 3 April 2018 (UTC)

Santa Clarita Diet[edit]

Hi Alexf, I see that you have reverted back to my last edit from a random ip address. However, the same random ip address has been repeatedly vandalizing the page. I gave that person a Warning (3). If that person continuously vandalizing the page, feel free to give that person a Final warning (4) or Only warning (4im). This just an WP:ASG.-- Lbtocthtalk 19:55, 26 March 2018 (UTC)

Blocked. Keep an eye on it then. Thx.-- Alexf(talk) 19:57, 26 March 2018 (UTC)

April 2018 Milhist Backlog Drive[edit]

G'day all, please be advised that throughout April 2018 the Military history Wikiproject is running its annual backlog elimination drive. This will focus on several key areas:

  • tagging and assessing articles that fall within the project's scope
  • adding or improving listed resources on Milhist's task force pages
  • updating the open tasks template on Milhist's task force pages
  • creating articles that are listed as "requested" on the project's various lists of missing articles.

As with past Milhist drives, there are points awarded for working on articles in the targeted areas, with barnstars being awarded at the end for different levels of achievement.

The drive is open to all Wikipedians, not just members of the Military history project, although only work on articles that fall (broadly) within the scope of military history will be considered eligible. This year, the Military history project would like to extend a specific welcome to members of Wikipedia:WikiProject Women in Red, and we would like to encourage all participants to consider working on helping to improve our coverage of women in the military. This is not the sole focus of the edit-a-thon, though, and there are aspects that hopefully will appeal to pretty much everyone.

The drive starts at 00:01 UTC on 1 April and runs until 23:59 UTC on 30 April 2018. Those interested in participating can sign up here.

Thanks! Yep, today is the day! -- Alexf(talk) 16:41, 27 March 2018 (UTC)

Rama Navami[edit]

Alex, I am little surprised on removal of the content on Rama Navami. Whether a proof, posted on a blog is considered as 'promotion'? please clarify. If your objection was to the link, you should have removed that. How can you remove addition of a very important missing fact that in the celebrations, folk song Chaita is sung since time immemorial in UP and Bihar? Please elaborate on your action.

Blogs are not reliable sources. Posting a reference to your own blog is spamming, and advertising your writings, and therefore not acceptable. If we take out the reference (which is inadmissible), then the whole sentence is hearsay. You must find a reliable and verifiable source, as required. Always remember the Golden Rule. Also please add new messages to the bottom of talk pages. Lastly, please remember link to the article, and to sign your posts in talk pages by adding four tildes at the end. -- Alexf(talk) 10:33, 30 March 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for your reply Alex. I got your point but there are some points to ponder:

1. One will not have a book reference always in case of local customs. Do you mean to say that wherever on Wiki there is mention of festival related customs, references also are always there? I don't think so. 2. The editors should consult some people on whom they rely on and who know about the local customs, before deleting something just like that. I am sure that you neither have any knowledge of the customs of that area nor you have consulted any person on that who knows the area well. it becomes important because what I had added was from the region which is birth place of Śri Rāma on whose birthday Rāma Navamī is celebrated. 3. In that link, audio of the song was also here. You could again get that verified from a source knowing the area. Will you accept youtube as a reliable source? Girijesh (talk) 15:34, 30 March 2018 (UTC) Girijesh

You do not get to make your own rules. It is not what "I will accept", but what Wikipedia's Policies say. The policies are clear. Please read them.
If you have any questions about how Wikipedia works, please ask at the Tea House. -- Alexf(talk) 06:40, 31 March 2018 (UTC)

2600:8800:FF0E:1200:AD51:B4EE:9659:A29C[edit]

This user is instantly back to disruptive editing now you've unblocked them. His edit summaries include personal attacks that are obviously and demonstrably false; I cannot keep my IP stable, according to Jbhunley. Look through this IP's talk page and see they have received and blanked many messages asking them to communicate and linking them to policy. They love accusing people of socking; see User talk:FreedomJoe (although at least they turned out to be right that time), the edit I linked on WP:AIV, and now their mass reverts. 89.240.143.247 (talk) 15:07, 31 March 2018 (UTC)

Note also their awareness of 3RR: here. 89.240.143.247 (talk) 15:09, 31 March 2018 (UTC)
like I said he will run to an admin and cry how bad I am and yet as an example the guy above FreedomJoe was found to be a permanently banned user and give an indefinite block - everything this fast ip address rotating sock tells you is a sham he is counting on you not looking into it!--2600:8800:FF0E:1200:AD51:B4EE:9659:A29C (talk) 15:11, 31 March 2018 (UTC)
Regarding "looking into it", if requested I would be happy to provide an evidence dump on this user's dubious activities. 89.240.143.247 (talk) 15:15, 31 March 2018 (UTC)
you have changed you ip address EACH AND EVERY DAY FOR YEARS - he is a sock of a permanently banned user there is no question--2600:8800:FF0E:1200:AD51:B4EE:9659:A29C (talk) 15:17, 31 March 2018 (UTC)
I returned to WP for the first time in years precisely ten days ago, but please do continue with your personal attacks and general incivility. 89.240.143.247 (talk) 15:19, 31 March 2018 (UTC)
... 10 days? and 10 different ip addresses!--2600:8800:FF0E:1200:AD51:B4EE:9659:A29C (talk) 15:22, 31 March 2018 (UTC)
Please see the linked ANI thread above. According to a very longstanding editor, this is normal and unavoidable. 89.240.143.247 (talk) 16:07, 31 March 2018 (UTC)
This is too complicated to follow, and I do not have the time at the moment. I did read the ANI thread just now. This is better handled at ANI, not by an individual editor/admin. -- Alexf(talk) 12:07, 1 April 2018 (UTC)
Done, at ANI now. 89.240.143.247 (talk) 14:38, 1 April 2018 (UTC)

A request to leave a message for a disruptive Portuguese IP editor[edit]

Hi. Sorry to bother you with this request, but could you take a look at User talk:95.93.160.191? This is an IP editor who has been editing silent films and adding inappropriate categories, such as Category:English-language films and Category:German-language films. Per WP:FILMCAT, we categorize silent films under Category:Silent films. This IP editor has been ignoring all talk page messages and has been blocked a few times. Suspecting a language issue, I checked the geolocation, and it geolocates to Portugal. I saw your name listed as a Portuguese speaker. Could you leave a brief message in Portuguese for the IP editor? Maybe if someone can communicate with this person, we can clear this up and unblock them. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 22:52, 31 March 2018 (UTC)

Just chiming in to say any help you can provide will be appreciated. MarnetteD|Talk 22:54, 31 March 2018 (UTC)

Just wanted to know why my edit was removed[edit]

Hi Alex, I have fixed a reference link in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Sri_Lankan_Americans. But it appears that you might have deleted that edit. May I know why?

Thanks. Laksitha — Preceding unsigned comment added by Laksithar (talkcontribs) 14:13, 2 April 2018 (UTC)

It is very simple. As the very prominent notice said when you edit that page, all entries require an article in the English Wikipedia. If the subject is notable, then an article could be written and accepted, then it could be in the list, not before. Please remember to sign your posts in talk pages by adding four tildes at the end. -- Alexf(talk) 15:09, 2 April 2018 (UTC)

Someone is apparently using my unshared IP address to make edits.[edit]

Hello, my name is Clay. Beginning in Dec 2017, someone, or some people have apparently been using my unshared IP address to make edits. I am 100% certain that nobody else has access to either my computer, or IP address from my location. I have had this IP address for approx 3 years.

I am obviously an unsophisticated web user. I have heard that people can use other people's IP addresses, but have no idea how this is done. Regardless, I do not want to waste your time. I only wish to inform you that I am not now, no have I ever attempted to edit wikipedia. I simply desire that the actions of these other person or people do not somehow reflect negatively on me. I have no idea what to do about this. Thank You.. Clay — Preceding unsigned comment added by 107.242.113.10 (talk) 18:02, 4 April 2018 (UTC)

You IP belongs to AT&T Mobility LLC. These IP Addresses usually cycle and you get a change every so often, They are usually not fixed, so it is conceivable other users may be sharing at times. One way around it is to create an account. That's your choice. As it is, if that IP Address continues to vandalize the encyclopedia, it might get a temporary block. Please remember to sign your posts in talk pages by adding four tildes at the end. -- Alexf(talk) 19:12, 4 April 2018 (UTC)

Abdur Raheem McCarthy[edit]

Abdur Raheem McCarthy is of Irish-American heritage and was born and raised in the USA.

After accepting Islam in 1994, he moved to Sudan and then Saudi Arabia where he spent ten years in Madinah studying under the scholars and as a student in the Islamic University of Madinah. He has studied and benefited from more than a hundred different scholars.

He graduated from the Arabic Institute and then from the faculty of Da'wah and Usool Ad-Deen, Islamic University of Madinah.

He is well known from his TV shows on Peace TV, Huda TV, Tayba TV, Sharjah TV and Qatar TV, along with lecturing internationally with the Peace Conference in India and Dubai, and conferences in the UK, Canada, Ireland, Qatar, UAE and Sudan.

He served as the Head of the Islamic Studies Department in the Sudanese Oxford Academy, Khartoum, Sudan for more than five years.

Shaikh McCarthy has now decided to follow his roots and is living in Ireland, while supporting Da’wah projects internationally.

Fine, and I care about this info, why? Makes no sense to put this here without a link or a reason. If I acted on an edit or an administrative capacity, that makes this relevant (even though this info belongs in an article not an user's Talk Page), please provide a link and an explanation of your point. With thousands of edits, i can't remember them all. Please provide a proper link. -- Alexf(talk) 15:51, 16 April 2018 (UTC)

Hello. You and Widr blocked the IP within seconds of each other, first Widr for three months (after a report by me at WP:AIV), and then, seconds later, you for two weeks. It's obvious block evasion (Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/JitsuFighter, per a 100% match for geolocation, articles hit, edits and general behaviour), and the IP has been used by that user only (as evident from their contributions) for just over four months, so would you mind upping the block to the three months Widr gave them? - Tom | Thomas.W talk 16:43, 21 April 2018 (UTC)

possible username violation..[edit]

I just noticed that the username Bigdickdaddy69420 violates the username policy as well... You might want to also add "Possible username violation" for Bigdickdaddy69420's block... --24.180.251.38 (talk) 15:58, 23 April 2018 (UTC)

Reverted Edit[edit]

Hi Alex. Just wanna talk about the edit I made to this page ( https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Jacob_Bragg&diff=prev&oldid=834184632 ) He does not go to Brisbane Grammar anymore. Hence why I made the edit. I did not put his current school there out of privacy concerns. If we could discuss this more that would be great. 101derpderpderp101 (talk) 07:06, 26 April 2018 (UTC)

I'll have to take your word for it, because there is no reference one way or another. Maybe then it is better school is not mentioned. -- Alexf(talk) 14:04, 26 April 2018 (UTC)

Disable talk page access?[edit]

After both of your blocks, 60.242.196.159 (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · filter log · WHOIS · RDNS · RBLs · http · block user · block log) has been messing about making a bunch of test edits in their talk page while blocked. Either they're WP:NOTHERE or badly failing WP:CIR. I just left them a {{welcome-anon-unconstructive}}, but based on past behavior, I don't know that they'll glean anything from it. Please consider disabling Talk Page access and perhaps they'll get bored and leave. Thanks. Mojoworker (talk) 16:57, 26 April 2018 (UTC)

ROXELANA22 sleeper[edit]

You remember the AN/TPS-43 vandal? Well, it looks like you missed a Sleeper Account, specifically ANTPS43NOTANTPS43 (talk • contribs • deleted contribs • nuke contribs • logs • filter log • block user • block log). I think the username is rather obvious (ROXELANA22 is the only one who uses those kinds of usernames). Can you please indef block that sock? It's old, but ROXELANA22 is known to log back into extremely old accounts. ZiguratEnki and Antiantps43 are the best examples that I remember (Antiantps43 was a Sleeper for 6 years). Thanks. LightandDark2000 (talk) 00:28, 3 May 2018 (UTC)

 Done -- @LightandDark2000: -- Had not known that one. -- Alexf(talk) 00:35, 3 May 2018 (UTC)
You're welcome. Face-smile.svg By the way, I can see that you've left a nice message for potential vandals at the top of your talk page. It would suck if they tried to vandalize after reading it. Ironically, my user talk page and my talk page on Commons (BlueHypercane761 - often targeted by ROXELANA22) are frequent targets for vandalism. LightandDark2000 (talk) 00:38, 3 May 2018 (UTC)

User:MIB INTERNATIONAL TRADERS[edit]

Hi Alexf! Did you mean to simply soft block this account or leave a hard block notice? You left a notice stating that they've also edited and added advertising / spam, but I didn't see any contribs, deleted contribs, or filter logs when I looked. Figured I'd just leave you an FYI just in case ;-) ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 21:20, 4 May 2018 (UTC)

Lots of fun.[edit]

Hey hey, buddy. My talk page keeps getting vandalized by presumably the same IP user that has been doing it. I can usually solve it myself, but it's getting to the point where I can't keep up and other helpful users are reverting it. It's nice and all, but, as this is presumably the same user that has been doing it, I would like to ask if this would be a valid reason to use Template:Uw-harass4im to warn any IP vandals that mess up my user page with the same pattern as they have been. Of course, after a second time I would report them to administrators. I figure it would be okay to do this, however I would like a second opinion. What do you think? Thanks! DatGoodDude342 (talk) 14:29, 5 May 2018 (UTC)

@DatGoodDude342: I cleaned up and redacted some. IPs blocked. Added a notice to your edit page for a while and watchlisted. Report to AIV and they will be blocked. It is only one editor in Singapore, with nothing better to do. It will pass. I am reluctant to temporarily protect the Talk Page as it would prevent other users from contacting you for legit issues. If you feel you need temporary semi-protection, you can always ask at RFPP. We have all been there. As an editor you need a thick skin, as many people are lacking in civility. Sign of the times. -- Alexf(talk) 16:15, 5 May 2018 (UTC)
Ah, okay. This makes me feel a lot better. Thanks for the advice, buddy! DatGoodDude342 (talk) 16:26, 5 May 2018 (UTC)

Suggestion for semi-protection[edit]

The article Fidget spinner is highly vandalized, I thought it may make sense to semi protect it as a majority of vandalism comes from IP/anonymous users.--Atomicdragon136 (talk) 01:35, 8 May 2018 (UTC)

@Atomicdragon136:: I see only a few IPs and one of them was busy on 3 May and has been blocked. The place to request page protection is at RFPP. Watchlisted the article so I'll keep an eye when online. -- Alexf(talk) 11:33, 8 May 2018 (UTC)

VNG[edit]

Hello,

You removed my paragraph regarding the VNG breach, although it was a legitimate important (historical) paragraph regarding the VNG Corporation along with cited sources. You simply said wikipedia is not for advertising, and not once did we advertise. We added sources directly from ourselves and another blogger. Why is that if we are the ones to break news, considered advertising; yet any other reference, citation, or outgoing links to legitimate news sources such as the ones we posted legitimate? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dehashed (talkcontribs) 11:54, 12 May 2018 (UTC)

Read about reliable sources. Blogs are not. Posting links to your own website is spamming and advertising it. Please remember to sign your posts in talk pages by adding four tildes at the end. -- Alexf(talk) 13:38, 12 May 2018 (UTC)

FYI[edit]

Hello A. I wanted to let you know that the IP that you blocked a couple days ago 172.248.226.22 (talk · contribs) is now editing from 172.56.41.73 (talk · contribs). Now in my experience some of their tagging is okay but their inability to understand that the "bare url tag" is not appropriate in some situations causes unneeded work for those of us who work with fixing those in various articles. I'm not sure how you would like to proceed but whatever yu choose to do is fine by me. Thanks for your time. MarnetteD|Talk 01:31, 13 May 2018 (UTC)

Link removal inquiry[edit]

Hello,

I'd like to understand why you keep removing the link to the official video site for Mystic BBS software at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mystic_BBS

Your justification the last time you did it is that "Wikipedia is not a guide" and that is understood. There is nothing on the page that is attempting to use Wikipedia as a guide. There were three external links to the official software page, its own Wiki, and the official site where videos about the software are created. Why is the video site any less relevant than the link to the other Wiki or the main software website?

As per Wikipedia guidelines: "There is no blanket ban on linking to user-submitted video sites through external links"

The link in particular is an account specifically created for information related to the software. It is relevant to the topic and properly categorized in the External Links section. 100% of the content is relevant to the topic; It's officially endorsed by the author and created by the support team of the software. Why would documenting that it exists through a simple External Link be considered using Wikipedia as a guide?

Thanks for any clarification G00r00 (talk) 23:44, 16 May 2018 (UTC)

Spam tag[edit]

I've removed the {{db-spam}} tag from Cuéntame cómo pasó (Argentina). I disagree that this article is blatantly promotional. It may rather poorly written article, but that can be addressed. And, while I'm unhappy about its lack of decent sourcing, the TV program was broadcast by the Argentine national TV station, which fact alone leads me to believe it merits inclusion. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 19:52, 21 May 2018 (UTC)

Ok then. I might disagree on what makes it notable (same for some radio programs, newspapers, schools, shopping malls, and many more), but that is a discussion for another place and time. -- Alexf(talk) 22:08, 21 May 2018 (UTC)

Learning by teaching[edit]

Dear Alexf, my English is very poor, but I try to explain my situation: at the begining of the 80s I developed a teaching method called "Lernen durch Lehren" in Germany. Step by step, as a scholar, I founded the theoretical basis of it and could spread within 30 years the method in Germany, so today the method is wide mentioned in the spezific education-books and articles. As Wikipedia emerged, a lot of people tryed to write an article about "Lernen durch Lehren" but soon I had to cooperate. Of course it war very difficult for me because of COI. The admins intervened again and again (some wanted to delete it) but they find out, that my contributions were objective and not advertising. A colleague from me translated the German article in English and I edited in English too, but diverse people corrected the language and completed the contents or transform them. The name from "Lernen durch Lehren" in English ist "Learning by teaching". Two days ago, I tried to link the newest article from me, because it is crucial: "Learning by teaching: conceptualization as a source of happiness". So your attention was fixed. This new article is necessary in order to maitain the Wikipedia-artical up-to-date. It is not advertising. In fact, I don't need advertising. Please inform you about the topic "Learning by teaching", you will see, that the article is objective. They are facts. I have looked at your User-page and I see, that you are very experimented. So I hope you will able to check, if the topics are notable or not. Many people are consulting "Learning by teaching". We all want to construct relevant knowledge in Wikipedia and you are able to proof if an article is relevant or not. --Jeanpol (talk) 18:19, 27 May 2018 (UTC)

I am not saying the company, method, or article is not notable, or factual. I was questioning your serious conflict of interest. As the subject of the article is not in my area of expertise I asked for some review, that is all. -- Alexf(talk) 18:22, 27 May 2018 (UTC)
OK. But how to find people able to review this article?--Jeanpol (talk) 18:44, 27 May 2018 (UTC)

Our New Request for Company Page Was Deleted[edit]

Hello Alex.

My name is Sadissa Babeni and I'm the Marketing Manager here at Ormuco, a software company headquartered in Montreal, Canada.

I took a few hours last week to build our company page on Wikipedia with the account 'Ormucocloud' and submitted it for review.

I'm surprised to see today that the request was simply deleted and the account blocked. Is there a specific reason to that? All our competitors have their pages on Wikipedia, so I don't agree with the fact that Wikipedia thinks we're doing any advertising.

Thanks in advance.

Sadissa Babeni Marketing Manager

So many policy violations. Where to start? Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, not a place for advertisement. If you want a listing for your company in the internet, may I suggest you create your own web page, or blog, or social media (e.g. Facebook?) This is an encyclopedia, and requires articles, not company profiles. You have a serious conflict of interest here. You have not even declared yourself as a paid editor as required. You refer to it as "Our company page". There is no such thing in Wikipedia. In order to have an article on a company, it must be notable.Above all, any article must comply with the Golden Rule. Please remember to sign your posts in talk pages by adding four tildes at the end. If you have any questions about how Wikipedia works, please ask at the Tea House. -- Alexf(talk) 15:04, 28 May 2018 (UTC)

deletion of Hot Hand[edit]

Hi, you deleted Hot Hand and the reason you gave was "Deleted to make room for an uncontroversial page move". But as I said on Talk:Hot Hand (also deleted by you), it is not uncontroversial to move Hot Hand (pinball) to Hot Hand. Hope you can reconsider your deletion. Thanks. --Neo-Jay (talk) 13:13, 29 May 2018 (UTC)

Gopher_(protocol) page link deletion[edit]

Hi, I am writing here as I didn't get a response when I responded to your message on my talk back page. Yesterday, you deleted the link I added to the Gopher (protocol) to Atto Servers which has a pure PHP implementation of a Gopher server. As Gopher is a mainly historical protocol, in my opinion, a list of server implementations for the protocol should have a mix of implementations that existed at the time the protocol was popular together with a list of implementations which are still being maintained -- the latter being suitable for retro computing enthusiasts. All of the server links on that page are external, except Bucktooth, as most of the servers are not notable in themselves. None of the servers listed are implemented in PHP, a major language used to write web pages, essentially, the successor to Gopher. PHP is also the language Wikipedia itself is written. Although I did write Atto Servers, my link was to an implementation of a Gopher Server written in PHP, so useful for the second category (retro computing enthusiasts) who might be using that Gopher (protocol) page server list.Cpollett (talk) 19:44, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

You are correct that it is a legacy protocol. The issue here is you are adding spam. When you have a link to your own server, or implementation, or work, you have a serious conflict of interest that makes it hard to write with a neutral point of view. Also, as Wikipedia is not a directory, there is no need, or reason, to list all implementations. -- Alexf(talk) 10:58, 31 May 2018 (UTC)
Let me leave it at this then, by your argument, the existing links in that table should probably be cleaned up. Although it is not a directory, Wikipedia should try to be representative, there should be a link for a maintained Gopher implementation in PHP as there are ones listed for more minor languages.Cpollett (talk) 17:10, 31 May 2018 (UTC)

This for bringing it to my notice that i cant copy from the original source. If you help me undelete i can remove the copyrighted portion which is the plot of the episodes.

Derrida and sign[edit]

I was wondering, Alex, why Jacques Derrida had been removed from the list of scientists who have done major work in the field of semiotics, most notably concerning the sign. The sign figures in many of his articles and his is regarded as an important contributor to the subject. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacques_DerridaCoralroot (talk) 16:27, 1 June 2018 (UTC)

Maybe because it wasn't clear, on a complex subject, what the broad definition of signs is and his contribution. If you think it should be there, then go ahead and add it. -- Alexf(talk) 16:35, 1 June 2018 (UTC)

IP 68.173.44.223[edit]

Hi Alexf. Could you take a look at Special:Contributions/68.173.44.223. Since you blocked less than a month ago, they've been at it again. RivertorchFIREWATER 04:30, 3 June 2018 (UTC)

Blocked. In the future, please report to AIV for persistent vandalism, or to ANI for other incidents. Telling one individual admin may have a delay as the admin maybe out for days. Thanks. -- Alexf(talk) 10:40, 3 June 2018 (UTC)
Hmm. I do occasionally leave a note with an individual admin when they've dealt with a particular user before and the situation isn't urgent. It has proved to be a quicker and more reliable method in such instances, especially in the middle of the North American night when AIV reports have a way of going stale and vanishing into thin air. I don't use this method when the admin in question hasn't edited recently, and if they don't respond in a reasonable time, I follow up. Anyway, if you'd prefer I not report these things to you, I'll try to remember. RivertorchFIREWATER 17:01, 3 June 2018 (UTC)
I din't mean to say don't report individually, just that you have usually a faster response time at AIV. -- Alexf(talk) 17:04, 3 June 2018 (UTC)

National varieties of English[edit]

The article Mariano Moreno used both American and British English.

I've counted the instances where each variety was used. British English spellings were used 6 times (labour, afterwards, favourable, honours, antagonised, afterwards). American English spellings were used 10 times (favoring, honor, counselor, channeled, labeled, counselors, neighboring, favor, neighboring, traveled).

As such, the article already leaned towards American English, which is why I changed those 6 British instances in order to standardize the language used throughout the article (an article using spellings from two different English varieties is problematic). If anything, changing it to British English would be a bigger change.

Whenever I edit an article, I always keep in mind the different varieties of English and consider which would be appropriate to use in the article. Even though I personally use American English, I don't have any personal bias towards it. I didn't make this change without considering it first.

If you disagree with the change I've made, you should go ahead and edit the article to exclusively use British English. AndreyKva (talk) 23:37, 7 June 2018 (UTC)

Ok then. -- Alexf(talk) 23:50, 7 June 2018 (UTC)

Oh. I thought there were two. Also she has been in the news lately and certain constituency is not happy with her. Lastly the vandalizing user might simply come back on another IP. You are right; maybe it shouldn't have been semi-protected looking at it now. It is for a shortish time anyway.

The story of my account[edit]

At the first minute my account was created, i was an IP address waiting for the block to expire. Then all of a sudden I (Me out of the IP address users) rushed to 'build' an account. I actively did the wikipedia adventure and visited the teahouse to learn about questions and their well-known answers. As days passed, my account was "autoconfirmed", it had permission to edit semi-protected pages and still did the same thing as when newly registered. This account grew inactive but then contributed to stub articles, start class articles and ones that need citations. The end.

Example: Monkey bread (though i needed experienced users to revert my test edits as if not intending it)

Want to know why my account's name is Bondboy9756? Because i want my account to stay anonymous! Bondboy9756 (talk) 11:19, 14 June 2018 (UTC). Do you know why Monkey bread has more citations than ever?! Because of me. Bondboy9756 (talk)

Bondboy's User page focus and frequent Teahouse postings without becoming an article editor feels a lot like editors that have been previously blocked. David notMD (talk) 17:49, 14 June 2018 (UTC)
The IP mentioned above also made many edits to the Monkey bread article, and exhibited the current odd sandbox behavior at the IP's talk page while blocked (until talk page access was revoked). I feel like I've seen this somewhere else recently too, but not sure where. At the very least it seems there's a CIR problem here. Mojoworker (talk) 20:21, 14 June 2018 (UTC)

ScottSullivanTV[edit]

Hey, if you have a moment, can you take a look at ScottSullivanTV's recent edits? His page move on Mad Max 2 needs to be reverted, because The Road Warrior was the US title, not the original title in Australia. In addition, all the other Mad Max-related changes he made need to be reverted, as well. His page move wasn't even performed correctly, as the talk page wasn't moved, and he added a period to the title of The Road Warrior. This is a mess and needs to be sorted out. ---The Old JacobiteThe '45 11:17, 19 June 2018 (UTC)
