Tiny Wings Page[edit]

I saw that you marked the page I created on the app 'tiny wings' for deletion, and it has now been deleted. I feel it was not written as an advertisement, just clearly stated what the app did. I am very against your decision, and am wondering whether the page could be restored, as I did not even get the time to make relevant edits.

I am not very happy with the way in which the page was removed. Please respond via MY talk page. Nathanl1192 (talk) 18:07, 1 March 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for your response. However, I did not get the time to place the hangon tag! I would have if I had the time. That is why I am not pleased. Can the article be restored?

This proves how the wikipedia community is so fucking regimented, and that is why I do not like it. For the end user its great, but as soon as you step foot in the community, BOOM! You are surrounded by arrogent cunts (not really you, but in general). End rant. Nathanl1192 (talk) 20:45, 1 March 2011 (UTC)

This actually doesn't prove anything of the sort, though perhaps you might want to take that particular attitude elsewhere. It's really not helpful. If you've ever looked at patrolling pages, you'd see just how much unbelievable cruft people try to post. Hence, there is a process where pages that fall under any of a number of categories can be removed quickly.
Can pages be recreated? Certainly. By all means, do so. Though keep in mind that a simple cut and paste will probably also get quickly removed. And, honestly, having a first effort deleted is unfortunate but not a big deal. Though you might want to watch the language when talking to other people in the community. I certainly don't recall being rude to you anywhere in there. Or here, even. Cheers. Bagheera (talk) 21:07, 1 March 2011 (UTC)

Classification of minerals[edit]

Sorry Bagheera, I added an SD template to the article as well and ended up removing yours. No offense, and if you think yours is the better fit feel free to reverse/revert my edit. Either way it's still up for SD, no offense meant! Zelse81 (talk) 06:08, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

No offense taken. It's all about trying to make the Wiki better.

Speedy deletions[edit]

Hi, I removed the speedy deletion tag you added to Find a tradesman as it wasn't one of the categories under which an article can be speedily deleted. However, I've added {{db-spam}} which is. If you look at this page you'll see all the valid reasons for a speedy and further down the page are the templates which can be used. I hope this is of help to you in the future. --JD554 (talk) 15:48, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

No worries. Caught the change. Cheers! Bagheera (talk) 22:21, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

Hello Bagheera

I am not very good at writing stuff, but thought that Grimney... The Land of Grimney was worthy of a mention. Could you perhaps help me in anyway to make the article better? I guess it is a lot to ask, but been visiting there lots and it is unique and special and surely should be referenced by Wikipedia.

Thanks for taking the time to write to me.

Zac — Preceding unsigned comment added by ZacharyBlackSmith (talkcontribs) 22:23, 8 February 2011 (UTC)

Dear Bagheera:

I would like to ask you for an advice regarding your recent decision to speed delete Mobissimo's page. I have a moral dilemma that I would like to tell you about. Here is the whole story- I am coming form Bulgaria, a small nation. I used to be a die-hard soccer fan and all my childhood I have been disgusted by the fact that the referee would rule for England or Germany against us. I have a drive for “fair play”. It is so strong that I go the extra mile to make sure that I catch all my students that are cheating using a unique combination of number theoretical and statistical techniques (You could check my 4-MAs in math and PhD in Finance). I have caught cheaters in Mason School of Business - The College of William and Mary, Bentley College, University of Maine, at Drexel University's LeBow College of Business and in the Xfi Centre for Finance and Investment at the University of Exeter where I have been teaching Finance and Fraud Prevention as an assistant professor.

Kayak and Sidestep are some of the biggest corporate cheaters that I have come across (if you spend a little time to check, you'll see that my Doctoral Dissertation was on the biggest bribe in human history). Kayak and Sidestep have signed exclusivity agreements and taken millions from certain online travel agents and airlines and pump them in advertising to confuse the American consumer. On the other hand Mobissimo is the meta-search engine with the best technology and the fairest play towards the consumers. They are accepting the most providers and really care about the consumers.

Furthermore, by different account Mobissimo is about tied for being the third most popular meta-search engine in the online travel market. It is behind Kayak and SideStep and has about the same popularity as Farecast (you can check this with Alexa, Compete, Quantcast, HitWise, ComScore, etc). Each of these three meta-search engines have their place on Wikipedia and the argument that Mobissimo is not significant to be included on Wikipedia does not make sense for me. Finally, Mobissimo is one of the oldest travel meta-search engines preceding Kayak and Farecast.

I am a devoted Wikipedia promoter (you could see that I am an official member of Wikipedia LinkedIn group). I was truly disturbed when I saw that there are Wikipedia article about the cheaters Kayak and SideStep and there is no article about the best travel-meta search engine Mobissimo, which really looks after the consumers and does not lie.

I would highly appreciate if you could contact me to discuss how we could solve this problem together.

Yours truly, Stanley

—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:23, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

Stanley, I appreciate where you're coming from. But please understand that when I propose an article for deletion, I do so entirely on the merits, or lack thereof, of the article in question. I read the article as written and if it looks like advertising, or fails to establish notability, I'll flag it as such. Some articles get an Advertising, Unreferenced, or Notability tag, whilst others are tagged for deletion depending on how they look. I'm not especially concerned whether a company's competitor has an article, or the merits of that article. In this case, the Kayak and Sidestep articles aren't relevant to my flagging the Mobissimo article.
There have been occasions when other editors have disagreed with my flags and removed them, or changed the flag to a different category. In others, the original editor has placed a HangOn tag and successfully argued for their article's retention. In either case, I'm perfectly good with it. That's the way the system works, and the ongoing success of Wikipedia shows that the system usually works pretty well.
To me there was, and is, no moral dilemma. It was strictly about the content of a specific article. At the time, I saw it as worthy of a DB tag, and flagged it as such. The subject of the article wasn't the reason for my flagging it. If I saw another article about Mobissimo, I'd read it for content and if it looked like it needed a tag, I'd place a tag. If it was the same article, I'd give it the same tag I had before. The existence of articles about it's competitors wouldn't be in the equation. The article isn't about them, after all.
Cheers. Bagheera (talk) 18:58, 13 February 2008 (UTC)


Hi Bagheera - Any suggestions for how I can edit this to make it sound less "advertorial" so the box that reads "this article or section is written like an advertisement" will be removed? I'm very new to the Wikipedia environment, so I appreciate any help. Thanks in advance! --Kristahtq (talk) 22:34, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

More help[edit]

Thanks for your speedy response, Bagheera. I appreciate the explanation of your reasoning behind the advertising tag. I suppose I just need more help. According to the Wikipedia entry for superlatives, a superlative describes something to extremes. I edited my copy carefully to ensure nothing was exaggerated or described "over the top." I feel my most recent entry sticks with the facts and the news articles and other sources I listed should verify the information. I made brief mention of the awards, as you suggested. I even linked to the organizations and publications that gave the awards - giving the reader the opportunity to learn more about the company and the other winners. If I were dwelling on the awards, I would have given them a more in-depth explanation in the entry. Please let me know what superlatives I should remove/rework to make this entry more neutral and untagged as an advertisement. Again, always learning in this place. Thanks again for your help. --Kristahtq (talk) 23:07, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

Sounds great. Thank you very much. Best, --Kristahtq (talk) 23:22, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

Wonderful. Thanks again for your clarification. I really want to make this entry work. I will make your suggested edits tomorrow and hope you'll continue with your advice. Have a great evening. Thank you! Kristahtq (talk) 23:55, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

Speedy tagging[edit]

Please be careful to use the appropriate templates when tagging articles for speedy deletion; Zorph was not patent nonsense (gibberish letters, keyboard-mashing, etc.), since its grammar was comprehensible. A better tag may have been {{db-nocontext}}. For a good explanation of when the {{db-nonsense}} tag should be used, you can check out User:Balloonman/CSD G1 survey.

Thanks for your help maintaining the project, rʨanaɢ talk/contribs 01:59, 5 November 2009 (UTC)

Also, Kristina Daza probably should have been {{db-test}} or nocontext (since the page's only content was "LOL"). rʨanaɢ talk/contribs 02:00, 5 November 2009 (UTC)

For patrolling new pages and CSD tagging!-- fetchcomms 00:41, 10 November 2009 (UTC)

November 2009[edit]

Information.svg Hello Bagheera. You tagged a page for speedy deletion, but you did not notify the article's creator that it had been so tagged. There is strong consensus that the creators of articles tagged for speedy deletion should be warned and that the person placing the tag has that responsibility. All of the major speedy deletion templates contain a pre-formatted warning for this purpose—just copy and paste to the creator's talk page. Thank you. Beeblebrox (talk) 19:59, 10 November 2009 (UTC)

Interesting. You can read my response in that talk section. Given recent reactions, I'll give any further editing, tagging, or CSD work a pass. It's really not worth the energy.
Cheers, Bagheera (talk) 20:30, 11 November 2009 (UTC)


Hi Bagheera, I started Wikipedia:Newbie treatment at CSD so its partly my fault that that this was done in a way that upset you and I'd like to apologise for that, and make a peace offering. Also we are trying to learn some lessons from the project, there are a number of proposals mentioned on the talkpage, mainly at Wikipedia:Newbie treatment at CSD#proposals as a result of this test, your input as someone caught up in this would be very welcome. In particular, and I apologise if I'm reminding you of something unpleasant, one proposal is Wikipedia talk:Criteria for speedy deletion#Suggestion - authors must be informed. Can I ask you if you used an automated tool such as Twinkle when you were CSD patrolling, or do you do your edits manually (it would be really helpful to know if we have a bug in Twinkle)?

Please see my comments on that article's Talk page. Bagheera (talk) 22:42, 19 March 2010 (UTC)


I have also placed my comment on that article's Talk page. I strongly advice you to first visit the websites run by that MVP and then make a word. However, I request you to remove the DB tag because I think the references I have given are quite credible. Gyandeep Kaushal (talk) 22:50, 19 March 2010 (UTC)

Read my reply on the article's talk page. Seriously. Actually read what I said, rather than going off against arguments I didn't make. Your comments haven't been helping your cause. Bagheera (talk) 23:01, 19 March 2010 (UTC)


There are many people out here in wikipedia which are not notable the way you want them to. Not all of them are Oscar winners. Just give it a search for some of them, I think you can find them. But I really think that if Microsoft is one of the most important companies in the world, the biggest awards which they give are also important. I would still be urging you to remove the tag. I agree that what I wrote was a bit against your argument, as I could not actually propagate it in my mind the way I should have. But I think running a website (without any spammer) with more than 500 registrations per day (its not orkut or twitter, its a SEM) and having more than 200,000 members in just about 3 years is something everyone shall appreciate.

Again, please realize what I want to say, and think about it. Gyandeep Kaushal (talk) 23:09, 19 March 2010 (UTC)

With all due respect, let's confine this to the talk page of the article in question, shall we? I've decided to step back and let other editors handle the decision. I will not be removing the DB submission, though, again, I have no objection to another experienced editor doing so. Bagheera (talk) 23:39, 19 March 2010 (UTC)

CSD notifications[edit]

Please notify the author of an article you tag for speedy deletions so that they have a chance to address the reasons for your tag. In most cases, the article will still get deleted, but at least the author will know why the article is being deleted. (For instance, DJ Joon.) - UtherSRG (talk) 03:48, 6 May 2010 (UTC)


Good evening, Bagheera, In checking my first try at an article, HoloTouch Technology, I see you apparently nominated it for speedy deletion and then deleted it without the author's input. Perhaps that is because of author's lack of familiarity with Wikpedia communication guidelines, and lack of direct electronic connection to Wikipedia. As to what you apparently see a commercial or product promotion (there is none in the HoloTouch Technology article), you might want to look at many other articles on Wikipedia such as GestureTek, which unambiguously touts product, company location and technology applications, all absent from the HoloTouch Technology article. Perhaps you might wish to reconsider deletion of the article in question. Rufus Regier (talk) 00:42, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

(Moved this to the bottom for consistency))
Rufus, let me clarify a few things for you. First, I do not delete articles. When I propose something for deletion it is reviewed by an administrator and the decision is theirs, not mine. Second, when I propose an article for deletion the decision is based entirely on the merits of the article in question when I read it. Whether similar articles exist is not my concern. The decision is based solely on the article I'm reading. Third, often mentioned in articles like yours, "Well, such and such has an article!" isn't relevant. If such an article exists, any editor is free to flag it appropriately. "Other similar articles" don't come into it.
That the article was deleted indicates that an admin here on Wikipedia agreed with my assessment that it qualified under the criteria for speedy deletion. Sorry if you felt it should have stayed. Cheers, Bagheera (talk) 21:01, 31 May 2010 (UTC)

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 05:11, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

deletion request for "invoiceit"[edit]

Hi, noted your objection to the article invoiceit and was going to add a Hang On, but it seems too late since it has already been taken off. Not sure why I wasn't at least informed about it. This is an article about a product that has been downloaded some 80,000+ times and is loosely based on similar software articles, such as Quicken, Quickbooks and MYOB_(Software_Company). With so many people using the program, it should be possible to have an article for general reference, much the same as the quoted articles. The article contains many links to general topics relating to the various tasks the software performs, as educational links. Please reconsider. CoStar68 (talk) 01:49, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

I didn't post the CSD for not being notable, I posted it because of the tone of the article. I would agree that a long running product such as that could well justify an entry. However, it would have to be written in such a way that it doesn't read like an advertisement. Now, if I missed posting a notification to your talk page, I'm sorry. I try to be good about that, but sometimes I either get interrupted or something else interferes. Cheers, Bagheera (talk) 21:49, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

Thanks Bagheera. Missing the notification can happen, I suppose, but in my book it is common courtesy to ensure it is posted. I spent a lot of time trying to get it right and it seems the objection and subsequent deletion was single-handed and swift, with no opportunity to respond, as is the rule from what I understand. I will try again and re-write it. Can you give me some clues as to which passages you found to be "like an advertisement" so I can concentrate on that section, or is the article irretrievably lost? CoStar68 (talk) 21:58, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

No worries, CoStar. If you check your own talk page, you'll see that I did post the notification a moment after I posted the DB tag itself. Cheers. Bagheera (talk) 22:14, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

Content Help![edit]

Hi Bagheera,

Thank you very much for your note on The Tobin School, with regards to content being G11. I'm new to Wikipedia and did not intend for the copy to read as advertisement! It would be really helpful let me know of specific copy that I could edit to make it meet the guideline standards (e.g., remove the last sentence under academics) Thanks so much for your help & I'm sorry for any problems.

Content Help! - Revisited![edit]


Thank you for your note & suggestions yesterday. I edited the Tobin School submission & re-posted last night. The page was again deleted, but I did not receive a notice on it as to why. Below please find the content that was on the page. If you can offer any advice as to how to fix it, I'd greatly appreciate it. Looking at content on the other schools' sites, I'm not seeing a difference between the listings. But, I am new and still learning, so I am missing something! Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you for your time and help. Sorry for any problems.

Thanks so much.

Located in Natick, Massachusetts, The Tobin School is a small, independent day school serving students in preschool to grade 5. Founded in 2004 by Mary Beth Claus Tobin, The Tobin School has 72 enrolled students and nearly 20 faculty members.

Hasty addition of speedy deletion template on Cwmbran centre for young people[edit]

Emblem-what.svg Hi, I noticed you placed a DB-SPAM template on ‎Cwmbran centre for young people after just 1 minute of it's creation! Pictogram voting wait green.svg Please slow down when tagging for deletion as this may be considered as biting newcomers. Thank you for new page patrolling. Puffin Let's talk! 16:31, 3 August 2011 (UTC)


Re this edit. How long have you been contributing? Please read the prod tag sometime. It says "if this template is removed, it should not be replaced". Even if it feels like a waste of time, the next step after prod removal is AfD. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 21:36, 9 August 2011 (UTC)

Substing User Talk Templates[edit]

Hi there! When using certain templates on talk pages, such as welcome templates and user warnings, don't forget to substitute with text by adding subst: to the template tag. For example, use {{subst:welcome}} instead of {{welcome}}. This reduces server load and prevents accidental blanking of the template. If you need any further help on the matter just ask me on my talk page. Cheers.·Add§hore· Talk To Me! 01:44, 6 March 2012 (UTC)


I think you should take a look at Talk:AZ World Translation and Interpretation. --Krenair (talkcontribs) 19:30, 5 April 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Treasure E. Blue[edit]

Hello Bagheera. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Treasure E. Blue, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: The article makes a credible assertion of importance or significance, sufficient to pass A7. Thank you. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 23:13, 20 April 2012 (UTC)

Page Curation newsletter[edit]

Hey Bagheera. I'm dropping you a note because you used to patrol new pages. This is just to let you know that we've deployed and developed Page Curation, which augments and supersedes Special:NewPages - there are a lot of interesting new features if you want to get back into the swing of patrolling :). There's some help documentation here if you want to familiarise yourself with the system and start using it. If you find any bugs or have requests for new features, let us know here. Thanks!

Speedy deletion converted to PROD: Rachele Lynae[edit]

Hello Bagheera, and thanks for patrolling new pages! I am just letting you know that I have converted the speedy deletion tag that you placed on Rachele Lynae to a proposed deletion tag. The speedy deletion criteria are extremely narrow to protect the encyclopedia, and do not fit the page in question. You may wish to review the Criteria for Speedy Deletion before tagging further pages. Thank you. (✉→BWilkins←✎) 12:23, 20 October 2012 (UTC)
