Editor conflict[edit]

I have been adding more current photos I’ve taken of subjects and places in Sheboygan but User:Mrschimpf has reverted several of those edits, falsely claiming I’m some such of competitor in local media in Sheboygan which I don’t own any interests in media publishing in Sheboygan County. In one edit on Shoreline Metro, my photo of a bus in service was removed because he claimed permissions were questionable and the photo was posed. Then there is the challenge of updating the photo on Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Asher Heimermann (talk

Draft: Iowa News & Views[edit]

You declined this draft, but I made changes to it that I think solved the initial issue. If you could take another look and give me some feedback I would be appreciative. Thanks for your time. WUH34 (talk) 4:45, 24 March 2022 (UTC)

I, Jon698 (talk), hereby award Bearcat the WikiProject Film Award for his valued contributions to WikiProject Film. Thank you for creating the page Two Women in Gold. I have a bunch of articles to create or improve relating to the Cinema of Canada, but you can obviously tell that I haven't gotten around to those due to the amount of sources I still have to go through.

Gil Penolsa article[edit]

Hi, in view of this candidate getting second place and 20% of the vote in the mayoral election for the fourth largest city in North America i think there needs to be this historical reference. The fact that he had no previous fame is actually super important in the history of Toronto politics. 70.52.38.190 (talk) 15:11, 25 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

(talk page watcher) As you've been told, being a candidate in an election does not establish notability and cannot be the basis for an article. You should be able to find plenty of writing on Mr. Penalosa's activism and organizing prior to his candidacy, though, he's quite well known for his work in 8-80 Cities, with World Urban Parks, for his groundbreaking policies as commissioner in Bogotà, and for founding the Open Streets movement. If you can write more about the things he's known for besides running for mayor, your article has a better chance of being accepted, but if you just keep hammering the submit button without making any kind of improvements, it's more likely to be deleted.

Vandalizm on a BLP page[edit]

Hi There seems to be a concerted effort at vandalizing a living person's biography here. A journalist who is under online harassment and attacks, and unsourced and libelous accusations keep being added to their page. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Negar_Mortazavi Nov2000 (talk) 14:41, 6 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi Bearcat: Have you really trusted this user's report? Have you seen the articles talk page? One user has asked them about conflict of interest, no answer. I appreciate you have changed the level of protection for the article. However, have you at least reviewed the edits to find out who is really committing vandalism? At least you could return the article to the healthy version. This is what admins usually do in wikipedia.
Do you believe I am part of "a contracted effort at vandalising a living person's biography"? I am not aware of this journalist online life anyway I have changed the wikipedia article based on sources. Thanks. Gharouni Talk 14:59, 6 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Although Gharouni may not be a knowing/willing participant, he is part of a recent WP:MEATPUPPET tag-team that has violated Wikipedia's core content policies (especially those related to living persons) at Negar Mortazavi, involving at least ten registered users (mostly WP:SPAs created exclusively for the purpose of editing Mortazavi's article, along with two apparent "sleeper accounts" that returned after months/years of inactivity) and several IP addresses, likely related to a previously-discovered sock/meat farm that disrupted Negar Mortazavi and Farnaz Fassihi in the past (and which may be coordinating through the Persian Wikipedia or social media). Detailed evidence of these violations can be found here and here. If this article is restored to a previous revision, then it should be to a version predating the current (September 2022–present) Mahsa Amini protests in Iran and the ensuing meatpuppet attack, e.g. the revision dated 00:09, 6 June 2022.

Item removed from page[edit]

This section was added previously by a Wikipedia editor but in the long process of vandalism it was removed and never put back. It is well documented and with primary sources:


In 2019 an investigation, and later a lawsuit[1], by Mortazavi revealed funds by the United States Department of State had been used to target and smear human rights workers, activists and journalists, many of whom were US citizens[2]. “Iran Disinformation Project” was funded by the department’s Global Engagement Centre, which was set up by Congress to “counter online extremism and propaganda”[3].


As a result of her expose and investigation, the State Department terminated support for the online project[4]. Nov2000 (talk) 14:46, 6 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Source for 2019?[edit]

On November 2, you moved Detective (upcoming film) to Detective (2019 film), and added an {{update}} tag to it. I haven't seen any evidence that the film has ever been released, so could you share whatever reliable source makes you call it a 2019 film? The most recent mention I've seen of it was in October 2019, when it was described as a film the director "is trying to make".[4] Thanks, Worldbruce (talk) 04:00, 10 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Article deletion[edit]

I noticed that you requested to delete an article name Ridoyanul Hoq. Because I moved the article directly from the draft space to the main space, and you also said that the references are from the blog site. Although this article was reviewed by 2 administrators before.

I respect your opinion, but one thing to note here is that: while moving the article from the draft to the main space with mobile, I didn't see the option like WP:AFC

And I want to say about the references that, all the references are not of any blog site. For example: reference number 6,7,9,10,11.

I'm new on Wikipedia, I don't know too much about Wikipedia policies, and I don't know how to reply at discussion page. That's why I left this message here. If you think my article still doesn't follow the Wikipedia rules, delete it ASAP. But if you think my article is suitable for main space, please remove the notice.

Category:CS1 maint: url-status‎‎[edit]

cs1|2 templates do not categorize user space pages. If ever a user space page gets categorized into a cs1|2 category, it is always because an editor did something that they should not have done. In this case, Editor EnergyMold included [[Category:CS1 maint: url-status]] as a stand-alone category when they created User:EnergyMold/Message.

whatever this template is or isn't SUPPOSED to be doing, this category IS showing up on the Wikipedia:Database reports/Polluted categories report. Right, that was a good thing. When categories show up on the report that shouldn't show up on the report, it is desirable to know that so that those pages that caused the category to be on the report can be fixed. Intentionally hiding those categories from the report, inhibits those who would fix those pages. Please don't do that.

I have fixed User:EnergyMold/Message so that next time the bot updates the database report, Category:CS1 maint: url-status won't be on it (assuming no one else adds standalone category links...). Please self revert. —Trappist the monk (talk) 02:07, 15 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

One discussion in one place.
The first thing I want you to do is look at the headers of Wikipedia:Database reports/Polluted categories, taking note of the limit to how many categories the page can actually display at any one time. Then, I want you to scroll down to the bottom of the page to see how many categories are currently on the page.
The work of cleaning that list up clearly hasn't been getting done as much as it should have lately, if there are that many categories on the page -- and because of that, some of the pages I had to clean up today had literally been in categories for months. So, long story short, I had to drudge my way through 955 categories today, which is considerably more than I should ever have had to put up with, because it should never have gotten that long in the first place -- and it had to be today, because if I hadn't mucked them all out the very next batch run was going to trip the limit (which can never be allowed to happen, because anything over 1,000 doesn't generate a second page, it just hides and completely evades any detection at all until the whole list is brought back below 1,000 again.)
The critically important purpose of that tool is to keep content categories clean, not hidden maintenance categories -- so when I'm working with that tool, my primary job is to concern myself with the content categories. Lots of other hidden maintenance categories aren't technically supposed to have userpages in them either, but still simply aren't really the category cleanup crew's concern because our job is to clean up the content categories first and foremost. So the {{Polluted category}} template isn't only for the question of whether a category was intended to have user sandbox pages in it or not -- the question of whose job it is or isn't to worry about whether it has user sandbox pages or not also plays a role in determining what categories that report should be looking at and what categories it should be ignoring. My job when I'm working on categorization project tasks is to worry about the end-user content categories, not with what kind of errors people may have made in hidden projectspace categories that I can't necessarily fix anyway. If you want to monitor the CS1 maint: url-status category for userpage errors, you're obviously free to do that -- but it's not the job of the categorization project or the polluted categories report to worry about it, especially not when I'm being forced to pound my way through a 955-category emergency. Bearcat (talk) 03:41, 15 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
You know, I just don't care enough to spend any time talking about this. We disagree and will continue to disagree.
If, as you say, Wikipedia:Database reports/Polluted categories is critically important for content categories then perhaps some time spent talking with bot op to limit the types of categories the bot trawls (content categories only, never hidden categories) or perhaps change the frequency of report updates from monthly to weekly so that each new report would be (on average) a quarter of the size of the current monthly reports.
I am done with this.

help with vandalism[edit]

Since November 16, 2022, a user who is not logged in, just identified by their IP address has been adding information to the San Antonio FC page that has no sources to back it up with. Specifically they are adding a player to the roster when there is no evidence on the internet, either by the club, league, or anywhere else that this transaction has occurred. I have undone the edit multiple times but they keep adding it back. Please assist.

Draft:Norma Jean[edit]

You had written:

This is highly advertorialized and is referenced entirely to primary sources that are not support for notability at all -- so it will have to be massively rewritten for compliance with our neutral point of view rules, and referenced to proper WP:GNG-worthy media coverage about her in reliable sources, before it can be submitted or accepted.

As a diddly point, anyone can submit anything any time, but you knew that. It was tweaked (not reworked) and submitted. I have declined it as 'npov'. The submitter is a new editor who is not familiar with how to write for Wikipedia, and they would benefit from asking for advice at the Teahouse.
