Well, that didn't take long, did it? :D Heh, heh; always good to see you around here. :) Acalamari 20:21, 8 September 2013 (UTC)

Nope, guess I've to get used to that sort of thing again. :p AngelOfSadness talk 20:24, 8 September 2013 (UTC)

Magas removed page[edit]

The page I was working on, has deleted so fast. didnt got time to do well. disappears in minutes and I'm trying to say none. Thank you so much, Angel Of Sandness. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Oneboz (talkcontribs) 11:41, 9 September 2013 (UTC)

Hello, User:Oneboz. The article had been tagged for a sufficent amount of time before deletion. I would suggest you re-create the article in User:Oneboz/sandbox so you can edit it without it being tagged for deletion while you're working on it. I'd suggest you look at the notability guidelines for musician articles when writing the article in your sandbox, make sure it fulfills the critera so that it won't be tagged for deletion again once re-created in the mainspace. Hope this helps. AngelOfSadness talk 11:47, 9 September 2013 (UTC)


Please be a responsible encyclopedia. Your citations and references with respect to Mr "Tay Za" are not working (broken link). Besides the sources that you used are not reliable e.g. Irrawaddy. It is not a professional source. Please embrace fairness, if you want to post negative information about a person on the www, the least you could do is verify the contents of your sources are reliable and accurate. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:59, 9 September 2013 (UTC)

Hello, you're right that particular source is broken, The others however are working fine and you removed them and their associated content with unsourced content that violates wikipedia's WP:NPOV so of course I reverted your edits as the majority of them simply removed content without a valid reason. I'll remove that broken source, but please don't remove more content that's perfectly sourced (links working). If you have better sources (indepentant, 3rd party sources), please add them to the article. AngelOfSadness talk 16:07, 9 September 2013 (UTC)

Block evasion[edit]

Back at it with a new ipv6 address. See 2a00:c440:20:27e:1875:fb75:6f28:726b (talk+ · tag · contribs · filter log · WHOIS · RBLs · block user · block log · cross-wiki contribs · checkuser (log)). Cheers - DVdm (talk) 18:07, 9 September 2013 (UTC)

Blocked 24 hrs by Edgar181. - DVdm (talk) 18:37, 9 September 2013 (UTC)
Hey, Dvdm. Sorry I only saw this now. I'm currently watching that article to catch/block any new IP address making the same nuisance edits. If you see any other obvious IP socks disrupting other articles that need to be blocked, please let me know and hopefully I'm around to block them in a timely manner.

Ok, will do. Thanks and cheers. - DVdm (talk) 08:13, 10 September 2013 (UTC)

Atlantic City, New Jersey[edit]

I was reading over the edits by User: and a lot of the information about prohibition era in Atlantic City IMHO seems accurate and properly referenced. Ed Bader was the Mayor of Atlantic City for many years and Enoch Johnson which is the basis for the character Enoch "Nucky" Thompson on the HBO series Boardwalk Empire is a real person and was the treasurer of Atlantic County as well as a undersheriff and sheriff of Atlantic County. Can I ask why you reverted this? TheGoofyGolfer (talk) 18:33, 9 September 2013 (UTC)

Hey, TheGoofyGolfer. That IP address blanked/deleted the section (which is properly referenced and fairly accurate) completely without reason so I reverted it as it did not appear constructive whatsoever. AngelOfSadness talk 20:17, 9 September 2013 (UTC)

Hitit University[edit]

Dear User,

I just wonder what kind of information is used as promotional stuff on wikipedia. I just wrote information about our educational units and etc. We just want to update and improve our page on Wikipedia. Could you please give some guidance on this?

Best Regards — Preceding unsigned comment added by Oyauslu (talkcontribs) 08:45, 10 September 2013 (UTC)

Hello, Oyauslu. Well, promotional text (such as "With its qualified and experienced staff, the faculty continues its studies to provide the students with the best educational opportunities.") is not allowed in Wikipedia articles per WP:NOTADVERTISING unless it was said by an independent third party source (no one connected to the university) which should be added to the article as a quote and a citation added to back up the statement. Any statements containing "our", anything that reads as a mission statement ("this course aims to"...) make the article read as an advertisment for the college not an encyclopedia entry for which is the standard Wikipedia aims. And unless you add independent third party sources to back-up the positive things about the university (e.g. the quality of education/courses), the text will be removed as it'll prevent the article from having a neutral point of view. Please take a look at the featured articles of Ohio Wesleyan University and Michigan State University so you can get a better idea on what is suitable for the Hitit University article. Also note how neither article contains lists upon lists of courses available in their universities: lists again read more like a promotional webpage rather than encyclopedia entry.
Also because you just admitted to being connected to the subject, you are highly discouraged from editing the article due to a conflict of interest as it may prevent the article from maintaining a neutral point of view. And so I would suggest that you write your suggestions to be made to the article on the article's talk page so an editor who is unconnected with the university can determine if it's suitable to be added to the article. I hope this helps. AngelOfSadness talk 12:23, 10 September 2013 (UTC)

Dear User,

Thank you for the feedback you provided me about the page of Hitit University on Wikipedia

Have a nice day — Preceding unsigned comment added by Oyauslu (talkcontribs) 14:19, 10 September 2013 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:BustaRhymes - DangerousSingleCover.jpg[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:BustaRhymes - DangerousSingleCover.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 22:05, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Notification of pending suspension of administrative permissions due to inactivity[edit]

Information icon Following a community discussion in June 2011, consensus was reached to provisionally suspend the administrative permissions of users who have been inactive for one year (i.e. administrators who have not made any edits or logged actions in more than one year). As a result of this discussion, your administrative permissions will be removed pending your return if you do not return to activity within the next month. If you wish to have these permissions reinstated should this occur, please post to the Wikipedia:Bureaucrats' noticeboard and the userright will be restored per the re-sysopping process (i.e. as long as the attending bureaucrats are reasonably satisfied that your account has not been compromised, that your inactivity did not have the effect of evading scrutiny of any actions which might have led to sanctions, and that you have not been inactive for a three-year period of time). If you remain inactive for a three-year period of time, including the present year you have been inactive, you will need to request reinstatement at WP:RFA. This removal of access is procedural only, and not intended to reflect negatively upon you in any way. We wish you the best in future endeavors, and thank you for your past administrative efforts.

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, AngelOfSadness. This message is intended to notify administrators of important changes to the protection policy.

Extended confirmed protection (also known as "30/500 protection") is a new level of page protection that only allows edits from accounts at least 30 days old and with 500 edits. The automatically assigned "extended confirmed" user right was created for this purpose. The protection level was created following this community discussion with the primary intention of enforcing various arbitration remedies that prohibited editors under the "30 days/500 edits" threshold to edit certain topic areas.

In July and August 2016, a request for comment established consensus for community use of the new protection level. Administrators are authorized to apply extended confirmed protection to combat any form of disruption (e.g. vandalism, sock puppetry, edit warring, etc.) on any topic, subject to the following conditions:

  • Extended confirmed protection may only be used in cases where semi-protection has proven ineffective. It should not be used as a first resort.
  • A bot will post a notification at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard of each use. MusikBot currently does this by updating a report, which is transcluded onto the noticeboard.
Please review the protection policy carefully before using this new level of protection on pages. Thank you.
This message was sent to the administrators' mass message list. To opt-out of future messages, please remove yourself from the list. 17:47, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

Two-Factor Authentication now available for admins[edit]


Please note that TOTP based two-factor authentication is now available for all administrators. In light of the recent compromised accounts, you are encouraged to add this additional layer of security to your account. It may be enabled on your preferences page in the "User profile" tab under the "Basic information" section. For basic instructions on how to enable two-factor authentication, please see the developing help page for additional information. Important: Be sure to record the two-factor authentication key and the single use keys. If you lose your two factor authentication and do not have the keys, it's possible that your account will not be recoverable. Furthermore, you are encouraged to utilize a unique password and two-factor authentication for the email account associated with your Wikimedia account. This measure will assist in safeguarding your account from malicious password resets. Comments, questions, and concerns may be directed to the thread on the administrators' noticeboard.

A new user right for New Page Patrollers[edit]

Hi AngelOfSadness.

A new user group, New Page Reviewer, has been created in a move to greatly improve the standard of new page patrolling. The user right can be granted by any admin at PERM. It is highly recommended that admins look beyond the simple numerical threshold and satisfy themselves that the candidates have the required skills of communication and an advanced knowledge of notability and deletion. Admins are automatically included in this user right.

It is anticipated that this user right will significantly reduce the work load of admins who patrol the performance of the patrollers. However,due to the complexity of the rollout, some rights may have been accorded that may later need to be withdrawn, so some help will still be needed to some extent when discovering wrongly applied deletion tags or inappropriate pages that escape the attention of less experienced reviewers, and above all, hasty and bitey tagging for maintenance. User warnings are available here but very often a friendly custom message works best.

If you have any questions about this user right, don't hesitate to join us at WT:NPR. (Sent to all admins).MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:46, 15 November 2016 (UTC)
