3D Hubs discussion[edit]

Hi Amatulić, Thanks for reviewing my article! I know 3D Hubs well, but I don't have any conflict of interest with them. I'm totallly new to wikipedia (as an editor), I just know some html and I copied the format of the page from wikis of other similar companies. Sorry if some parts seemed overly enthusiastic, hope it's okay now. Cheers, (User talk:Kisg24 09:35, 17 October 2014)

Nice job cleaning up /High-frequency_trading[edit]

Spent a lot of time on it and it really needed a good clean up !!!

cheers !!!

looks amazing now

Brad Katsuyama is a financial services executive, working as the president, CEO and co-founder of the IEX, the Investors Exchange. Katsuyama is also the focus of Flash Boys, a non-fiction book by Michael Lewis about high frequency trading (HFT) in financial markets. Brad Katsuyama led a team that implemented THOR, a securities order-management system that splits large orders into many different sub-orders that arrive at the same time to all the exchanges through the use of intentional delays. Starting at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, the largest future exchange in the world is the location where Spread Networks started a 827 mile long fiber optic line all the way to the Bats Exchange, Inc in Northern New Jersey.

Noormohammed satya[edit]

You may recall your last contact with the above-noted user was to remind him not to engage in any editing until he had secured a mentor to advise him on matters of copyright infringement. Well, today Shashi Sumeet Productions popped up on my watchlist; it seems Noormohammed just recreated this deleted article with text copied verbatim or closely paraphrased from Realbollywood News and the Times of India. I'm not sure if he got the material directly from these external sites, or if he just blindly copied plot summaries from our own infringing articles. (Even if the latter, it's still problematic—we have rules about copying within Wikipedia which must be followed to ensure our contributors' own CC-BY-SA text is legally credited, and to help trace the source of infringing material which gets shuffled between pages, as may have happened here.) I did a quick check of his recent contributions and don't see any attempts by him to locate a mentor. His last word on the matter is an unsigned reply to you on his user talk page on 30 November 2014.

As you'd been handling the situation before, could you please revisit it? This user was a major time sink over at WP:CP and WP:CCI so I'm sure nobody there relishes the prospect of having to laboriously check over and clean up all his edits again. It's important that he immediately stop the problematic copying, and at this point I'm not particularly bothered whether that's through mentorship or the reinstatement of his indefinite block. —Psychonaut (talk) 08:29, 8 April 2015 (UTC)

Not interested? Should I refer this to someone else? —Psychonaut (talk) 10:43, 14 April 2015 (UTC)
Sorry... lately my Wikipedia activities have been limited to things that can be done quickly without too much thought. As I recall, he was having trouble finding a mentor, suggested that I do it (which I can't), and then apparently he gave up and went off flying solo.
I'm not ignoring your notice, I'm just trying to find a good time where I have 20-30 minutes or so of uninterrupted time to study the evidence and take appropriate action -- which at this point looks like it might mean re-blocking. If you want to involve any of the other admins who previously declined unblock requests on his talk page, you're welcome to do so. ~Amatulić (talk) 21:15, 14 April 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the response. I certainly don't mind waiting, and think it's probably best if you're the one who responds so as to ensure some sort of continuity. In the meantime I'll try to keep an occasional eye out for further copyvios. —Psychonaut (talk) 06:05, 15 April 2015 (UTC)

Removed semi-protection of reddit[edit]

There doesn't seem to be any problems happening with Reddit. I am requesting it to be unprotected for this reason. Thanks, Anarchyte (talk) 09:28, 12 May 2015 (UTC)

@Anarchyte: Er... there aren't any problems happening because the article is semi-protected. That means the protection is working as it should. You might want to see the RFPP request that led to this protection. Continuous disruptive activity from anonymous IP addresses and unconfirmed accounts, resulting in numerous (too many) entries in the protection log culminated in semi-protecting it indefinitely. You can certainly request removing the protection, but I suspect the article won't remain unprotected for long, given its history. ~Amatulić (talk) 21:31, 12 May 2015 (UTC)

Ali Astani[edit]

Hi: Ali Astani plays for Iran national under-17 football team & Perspolis F.C. in the Persian Gulf Pro League IranLeague, PersianLeague and Article in Persian Wiki. PLZ Remove protection.-SaməkTalk 23:22, 11 June 2015 (UTC)

What protection? Which article? I see no article on Ali Astani. ~Amatulić (talk) 23:33, 11 June 2015 (UTC)
I want to ‍creat Ali Astani, But Protected.SaməkTalk 23:40, 11 June 2015 (UTC)
You've removed in 3 September 2014.-SaməkTalk 23:46, 11 June 2015 (UTC)
I did not protect that page. HJ Mitchell protected it. Also, I will not unprotect it because you haven't offered any new information beyond what was already written in the deleted article. If you tried to re-create it, it would be quickly deleted again for that reason.
Please start a new article in your sandbox or in draft space, and when you are satisfied that it is ready for publication in main space, ask me or another administrator to review it and move it over the protected title. ~Amatulić (talk) 22:09, 12 June 2015 (UTC)

Embedded Hypervisor[edit]

I've copy edited the Embedded_hypervisor page to try address some of the issues you flagged, would you care to review and add more comments to that talk page for specific areas requiring update. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:45, 12 June 2015 (UTC)


I didn't realize it was a copyvio site — thought it was licensed. Good catch. --Tenebrae (talk) 16:04, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

Not a problem... every so often I go to Special:LinkSearch and look for new *.guru sites that have popped up, and remove them from main article space. With very few exceptions, .guru sites are generally not appropriate for linking on Wikipedia, because most of them are self-published or non-authoritative, and in some cases they are copyvio. The additions aren't frequent enough to warrant a blacklist of the .guru TLD, but it might be worth putting it into XLinkBot for reversion the first time a link is added, similar to the way XLinkBot already auto-reverts the first time someone adds a blogspot link. ~Amatulić (talk) 19:22, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

Formal mediation has been requested[edit]

The Mediation Committee has received a request for formal mediation of the dispute relating to "Intelligent design". As an editor concerned in this dispute, you are invited to participate in the mediation. Mediation is a voluntary process which resolves a dispute over article content by facilitation, consensus-building, and compromise among the involved editors. After reviewing the request page, the formal mediation policy, and the guide to formal mediation, please indicate in the "party agreement" section whether you agree to participate. Because requests must be responded to by the Mediation Committee within seven days, please respond to the request by 8 July 2015.

Discussion relating to the mediation request is welcome at the case talk page. Thank you.

Intelligent Design[edit]

User:Amatulic, Hi. As you can see by this French Wikipedia page on Intelligent design (French: Dessein intelligent), they give both sides of the argument, presenting the subject in a more neutral tone. They write (translated from the French): "Intelligent design is presented as a scientific theory by its promoters, but in the scientific world it is considered as a pseudoscience, for reasons that both the internal facts of biology and also epistemological criteria cannot be rectified (the proponents of intelligent design appearing to biologists as having ignored numerous arguments, the more notable of which being the falsifiability criterion of Karl Popper)..." I am, therefore, quick to admit that the WP article on Intelligent design should at least attempt to show that ID is viewed differently by different folks, and that even if it were not a scientific theory, per se, it is still a philosophical question suggestive of something else beyond what is seen by our naked eye, and that some biochemists (i.e. Michael Behe) and physicists (i.e. Albert Einstein) have entertained that notion as a real possibility, given all their scientific experience. Do you think that it would be possible for us to incorporate something along the lines of the French article into our own English article, and to admit that there is a philosophical question that has been the subject of debate (or of mere musings) by some respected people of the scientific community?Davidbena (talk) 22:22, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

Each Wikipedia has different rules. The French Wikipedia (if not now then at least in the past), has no problem with companies using the platform to promote themselves, something that isn't allowed on the English Wikipedia. Similarly, their policies and guidelines regarding neutrality and undue weight are not the same.
That said, I do like the objectivity in the phrase "in the scientific world it is considered pseudoscience..." but the French version is wishy-washy about the leading description "presented as a scientific theory". Our lead is better in that regard, using a direct quotation from the Discovery Institute to describe exactly how proponents describe it.
As I have stated before, my only objection to the lead is the usage of the adjective "pseudoscientific", because it comes across as dictating an opinion in Wikipedia's voice, rather than simply stating that ID is considered as pseudoscience (a noun) which is more objective. ~Amatulić (talk) 08:23, 10 July 2015 (UTC)

Request for mediation rejected[edit]

The request for formal mediation concerning Intelligent design, to which you were listed as a party, has been declined. To read an explanation by the Mediation Committee for the rejection of this request, see the mediation request page, which will be deleted by an administrator after a reasonable time. Please direct questions relating to this request to the Chairman of the Committee, or to the mailing list. For more information on forms of dispute resolution, other than formal mediation, that are available, see Wikipedia:Dispute resolution.

Deletion of Galaxy Fräulein Yuna[edit]

This is to dispute the deletion of Galaxy Fräulein Yuna. The contents of the original article was from the original Galaxy Fraulein Yuna, which was deleted also for a different reason (redirection to a deleted page). The source you have mentioned was actually the one which copied the article from Wikipedia, instead of the other way around. Kindly check and verify. Thank you. THE IMPERIOUS DORK (talk) 05:48, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

@THE IMPERIOUS DORK: Yes, you're correct. I was about to restore it but noticed there's a mess that needs fixing: The histories of both articles need to be merged. I'll fix it up. ~Amatulić (talk) 17:47, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
All done. ~Amatulić (talk) 17:54, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

Robert Eringer talk page[edit]

Can you have a look at Talk:Robert_Eringer#Advert_tag I've got a administrative editor who thinks it cool to trash other works when you contest his AfD nomination. I'm the paid editor you helped with Robert Eringer, I don't believe I can remove even an unwarranted Advert tag from the article space. Cheers -- 009o9 (talk) 01:16, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
