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.

Just wondering[edit]

Just wondering if you could perhaps take a look at, and even weigh in with your opinion of my proposal at Mohammedan. I wasn't sure if it was on your watchlist. Thanks! Quinto Simmaco (talk) 09:49, 11 March 2015 (UTC)

ABC-CLIO on blacklist[edit]

ABC-CLIO is a major publisher of academic books. I use them all the time and now they have e-books that are very useful references.

you put it on the blacklist

because one person "spammed" it ...he appeared for one day & is now gone for over a year (he made a legit edit--it was not spamming)

can you please remove it? I got stopped short when I linked to them


Thanks RJensen

I agree with this request to take ABC-CLIO off the blacklist, where it should not have been placed. Binksternet (talk) 04:55, 24 March 2015 (UTC)

Revisiting the Wifione incident[edit]

I'm curious if you've revisited the User:Wifione incident now that he's been banned. During an initial SPI in 2009 you said that an investigation was "premature after only two edits to the article". Having just seen this comment, I'm curious how you came to that conclusion. There were several red flags: 1) the user made their way to the Indian Institute of Planning and Management article on their 17th edit. Don't you find it the least bit strange that a new user would find their way to sockpuppet central on their 17th edit? I think most people would wonder about this. 2) you said "I am not seeing the same editing patterns", yet you characterize the pattern as simple reverting when the original poster made it clear that the pattern was not reverting, but "trying to whitewash the page and remove all uncomplimentary information." And, in fact, that is exactly what Wifione was doing.[1] So, it took an additional six years for the user to be banned when the evidence was clear back in 2009. As a scientist who is willing to revisit their theories, do you still think it was premature for an investigation of Wifione based on the initial SPI evidence? [2] Viriditas (talk) 05:47, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

Interesting, I didn't know he was banned.
I brought up evidence of Wifione's conflict of interest at his RFA. And earlier I participated in a WP:COIN investigation on Wifione.
You can find all that information yourself if you're interested. I have no idea what purpose you have in selectively revisiting old history pm this talk page. ~Amatulić (talk) 19:17, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
My purpose is to let you know he was banned and to learn as much as I can about why this happened and how to prevent another incident like it. I would very much like to review his RFA and the COIN investigation, so thanks for pointing me in that direction. I'm sure I can find the RFA comments, but am I correct to assume that the COIN discussion is located in the appropriate noticeboard archive? Btw, you may be interested in reading this article about the incident. Viriditas (talk) 20:12, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
Wifione has his RFA linked on his user page.
If you search the WP:COIN archives for "wifione" you will find the discussion. ~Amatulić (talk) 23:16, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

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)
