CatchPhrase celebrity section.[edit]

Hi I just had a question about the CatchPhrase Wikipedia page. Recently, SolomanMckenzie added in a section about the celebrity episodes being broadcast and the winnings. and the like. There recently has been a crackdown on game shows like The Chase UK or Tipping Point Lucky Stars, where certain other uses have deemed episode guides and lists of celebrities to be fancruft and NOTSTATS (you can check the edit histories of both programmes). Even after this has been mentioned on both programmes, users like Soloman McKenzie likes to add in lists of Celebrities or episode guides which do get reverted. Would this section that this user has added be considered fancruft as well? This is an article for Deletion discussion that occured for a similar game show discussing it. any advice would be appreciated. (talk)samusek2~

Batch file[edit]

Please explain how I can properly add the link to to the batch file page. My compiler is my lives work. It started a software category in 2003 and it adds many useful commands to batch files that cannot be found elseware.

It also allows users to hide their batch file code and add an icon. They can raise code to ADMIN level execution status and embed their company name and copyright/version information in the file properties.

I was also trying to remove the part of the article that contains malicious batch file code in order to prevent ignoarant people sharing malicious code to hard working people. This can cost time and money to thousands of people if it is not removed. Someone could potentionally lose their job or even worst. Why was I blocked from making these changes.

I am new to editing wiki articles but I feel my changes are necessary. Please help me make these changes.

Always here to help.

semir osmanagich[edit]

What I really put are FACTS, which are always OBJECTIVE, because they are true and what is subjective is somebody's opinion... I am open to different opinions and I also included some of negative or critical opinions in a text! I have no problems with that... But, if Your whole text is based on negative opinions or few years old information INSTEAD of facts, maybe because facts include for example this person's success in some area or rewards or so then I wish to ask You: does it mean that "objectivity" in case of Mr Osmanagich for You or for the wiki? is that HAVE to be given exclusively NEGATIVE "information" and opinions about that person? Because it is obvious that ANY positive FACT, not to talk about opinion is not tolerating at all... Or?


Reverted edits[edit]

Hi Amortias,

I didnt know that edit was even real, haha! Thanks for getting rid of it, I was just trying to experiment my powers on wikipedia; Please dont delete any of my other edits though as they were all supposed to be their and they are all factual.

Kind Regards


Reverted Edits[edit]

Hi Amortias -- My edits that you reverted were intentional. The article in question was a sort of odd amalgam of unrelated content, and I was also attempting to add balanced content on both sides of the debate. Thanks for your vigilance, though!

Fantastic Four reverted edit[edit]

You reverted one of my edits on the fantastic four movie page because I did not have a proper edit summary, I don't really know how to do an edit summary but there is false information on that page, the fault in our stars trailer surpasses xmen days of future past and the fantastic four teaser and official trailer in view count, whatever article they referenced was wrong. But since I don know how to properly edit I was wondering if you could do it, thanks.


Hi. I do a lot of scouting for potential admin candidates. I couldn't help noticing you've got one of thos 'I want to be an admin' userboxes on your user page. You may wish to read WP:RFAADVICE in its entirety including the footnotes. The page has become the main venue for those seeking advice and as I wrote it, if you have any questions you are welcome to contact me. --Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 12:31, 27 June 2015 (UTC)

I'll give it a good look. Not 4 hours ago I asked WormThatTurned for a review of my contributions with an aim of running (subject to someone nominating me).Amortias (T)(C) 12:34, 27 June 2015 (UTC)
Kudpung Read, I have a feeling I've read this before but i read so much stuff on here memory passes. Amortias (T)(C) 14:37, 27 June 2015 (UTC)
And can I get your opinion on admins who arent content creators. I fit in this category quite heavily apart forma spate of copyediting in my infancy before I moved onto primarily anti-vandalism work. Amortias (T)(C) 14:38, 27 June 2015 (UTC)
After reading WP:RFAADVICE, the next step is to read user:Kudpung/RfA criteria. It will tell you all you need to know about why and how I vote and how my RfA votes can somtimes have an important impact on an RfA. If you can check all the boxes there you would probably have a 99.9% chance of passing, especially if you were nominated by people like Worm. Candidates who are weak on providing content are sometimes given a hard time, but they might pass, particularly if they have been around for a few years. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 15:58, 27 June 2015 (UTC)
Kudpung Statements above in table. Amortias (T)(C) 18:51, 28 June 2015 (UTC)
I'll be having a look soon Amortias (Some of the tools I use are down, making things difficult). WormTT(talk) 08:41, 29 June 2015 (UTC)
Appreciated. Take your time if the bits something that I should have to use it'll come when its ready not before. Amortias (T)(C) 21:08, 29 June 2015 (UTC)
Hi, Amortias. I dug through your contribs and talk pages for another reason but I'll weigh in here. I often participate in RfA with a different set of criteria. I vet candidates pretty thoroughly before I participate in discussions. For me, biting newcomers with overly strict interpretation of policy and guidelines can lead to an oppose. Extremely quick tagging or assuming malice rather than ignorance may earn the same. I found none of that in a quick review your history. I like to see helpfulness and found some. Work at the help desk, Teahouse and such improves my opinion of candidates for the mop.
Specific observations from my quick review:
  • Some regulars at RfA dislike hat collectors and Kudpung mentions it in his criteria. Why do you have the autopatrolled right if you haven't created an article? The standard for getting that right is creation of 50 or more quality articles. I saw no request at WP:PERM or on Gilliam's or your talk pages so I'm not sure how or why you have that hat. Automatically marking talk pages you create with automated vandal fighting tools as patrolled is not the purpose of the permission. Seeing the autopatrolled permission prominently displayed on a userpage implies that the editor is a prolific article creator. If still there, expect questions in your RfA about the permission and its display. Something that simple can derail the RfA of a pretty good candidate.
  • Many RfA regulars do their own review (and more should) and may grumble and possibly oppose when they find shortcomings like the 'Archives' button in your page headers that only shows 2014. Fix it to show 2015 archives (perhaps even add a blank 2016 to show you plan to stick around). Look around your userpages for other problems and fix 'em before you transclude your RfA because people will look and judge your competence and attention-to-detail and maybe even trustworthyness based on what they find.
  • Lack of content creation is a killer these days. I'm among those who judge that work on articles is essential. I won't oppose unless I see a lack of clue because the candidate doesn't understand what it takes to write and improve articles. But I won't support a candidate with no content creation.
A challenge: Delete the old stuff and move User:Doctree/sandbox/Science_cheerleaders into your sandbox or a subpage. I'm unlikely to ever find time to work on it. Demonstrate clue by not doing a cut-and-paste. Lots of reliable sources are provided in the project's website to establish notability (the coordinator lists media coverage of events and participants). Google it to find the controversy. Many criticize them saying their physical beauty and booty shorts detract from the science goals. Get the balance right, no WP:UNDUE or other problems. Move the article to main_space once it's fleshed out and well sourced. Wait for it to be patrolled and deal with any tags. (You did give up autopatrolled, didn't you?) Many professional cheerleaders have Wikipedia articles; Wikilink back from those also in the Science cheerleader program to get rid of an orphan tag. Upload the logo and write a WP:FAIRUSE rationale (the Wizard helps). List relevant Wikiprojects on your new article's talk page. Wait for an independent editor to rate the quality of your article and give it low importance. Write a hook for DYK and go through that process. Alternatively, choose your own topic(s) and write one or two solid, well referenced articles and get one through DYK. Then you can honestly say in your RfA that you aren't and likely will never be a content creator but you did that/those article(s) specifically to understand the challenges of those who do create content. Your honesty and that work in the area that's not your preferred activity will earn respect and trust and likely my support. I hope you find this helpful, DocTree (ʞlɐʇ·ʇuoɔ) WER 03:54, 6 July 2015 (UTC)
Archives - Yes check.svg Done,
Autopatrolled - requested a while back just due to the sheer number of new pages I was creating with new page patrolling. Request was denied for reasons mentioned above (no article creation and not purely for the new page patrolling stuff), got a notification a while back that I had been granted the right. Assumed was a policy change as such but didn't think about it again just updated my topboxes and carried on as before. Certainly wont cause me any problems if its gone.

Potential admin[edit]

Hi, I notice you're on Wikipedia:List of administrator hopefuls. Wikipedia would benefit from more admins. If you have been editing for more than 12 months (preferably 24+ months), and have been editing fairly consistently for the past 6 months (preferably 12+ months) with at least 100 edits a month (this tool will help) - or an explanation for any gaps, and haven't been blocked in the past three years - or a good explanation for a recent block, don't have a recent history of edit warring or arguing with other editors, feel you can explain why you wish to be an admin, can demonstrate some understanding of Wikipedia's procedures and processes, or know where to go for guidance, and are confident enough to go through a RfA, please get in touch with me. We can talk about it some more, and if all looks OK, I'll nominate you. SilkTork ✔Tea time 01:57, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

SilkTork Yes I'd be interested I have a bit of an editing gap at present due to change in work but should be back to normal levels in a week or two.Amortias (T)(C) 21:10, 31 August 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for responding, and sorry for delay getting back to you (I turned off alerts for when my name is used in discussions shortly after that function was introduced, as people kept dropping my name into conversations in the assumption I would then get involved - my own assumption is that if people really do want to speak to me - rather than simply drag me into a conflict, they will leave me a note on my talkpage! ;-)). Your contributions count seems OK - it meets my minimum standard for us starting a conversation. Your AfD contributions may be more of a problem, as you mostly vote for delete, and are concerningly out of step with consensus. There may be reasons for that which we can talk about. Would you like to talk a little bit more about your potential for being an admin, and let me look more closely at your contributions? If so, drop a note on my talkpage and I can set up a page for us to chat, or email me (some folks have preferred that approach). Regards SilkTork ✔Tea time 17:00, 8 September 2015 (UTC)
And I'm now finally back on WP. Feel free to converse here now as its so much easier and save me repeating e-mails in RFA's. Amortias (T)(C) 17:27, 27 September 2015 (UTC)

I'm setting up a page at User:SilkTork/Chicha/Potential admin chat/Amortias. We can chat there. I'm a little busy elsewhere at the moment so chatting may be a little slow, but I have the page watchlisted and will get around to responding, even if it takes a while sometimes.

Deletion of my User Profile:Sharique Manazir[edit]

As per message that I have received my user page has been deleted specifically because"This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page appears to be blatant advertising which only promotes or publicises a company, product, group or service, and which is a violation of our policies regarding acceptable use of user page".

I would like to share very clearly that there was "limited autobiographical and personal content" and there was no such intentional or unintentional advertisement of company, product, group or service on my page.Worth mentioning page was created by me to test the content creation features of Wikipedia back in 2010 when I joined it.

And as per User page guidelines allows " limited autobiographical and personal content".

I would request you to re.publish the content.

Murat Koprulu Wikepedia page[edit]

Hi Amortias,

I work for Mr. Murat Koprulu. The changes I made on his Wikepedia account are information I gathered thru working for him. I am the reliable source!

Thank you,

Beth Roa

Saoirse Ronan[edit]

The edit I made was to remove the jacked up formatting that the previous editor made. Go look at it. Their sources are dubious at best as well. Blogs as a source? Perhaps you can examine their half-baked edits with the same critical eye.

John H. McMorries Wiki[edit]

Hello, I just received notice that the reference to MetroHealth I added to Dr. McMorries page was removed. I added that as City Hospital is now MetroHealth System. The MetroHealth System Wikipedia states that was formerly named City Hospital. I am not sure why my reference was incorrect. Cre8tivediva (talk) 23:29, 31 January 2016 (UTC)

Hi Cre8tivediva, unfortunately Wikipedia cant be used to confirm claims. As (almost) anything on Wikipedia can be edited by anyone you would need to link to something more suitable (such as the link used in the MetroHealth article (if there is a link that confirms this) about the change of name. If you can find this link and add it to the page about Dr McMorries this would be sufficient. Amortias (T)(C) 23:41, 31 January 2016 (UTC)

Stuarts Hammer[edit]

So I haven't been able to find any other sources for Stuarts Hammer. As for the existing sources, despite a number of NYT articles titled "The Pop Life," there are none that acknowledge this band or come from the year the article claims it was published in. Stereo Review magazine apparently dropped off the face of the earth a few years ago and has no online archives anywhere. The Rolling Stone article doesn't seem to exist either. The band may be notable, but so far I'm not finding much to show that. --Nathan2055talk - contribs 02:49, 9 February 2016 (UTC)
