Hi, I can see it's improved, so well done. I don't think I asked for anything in particular did I? I think I was just making a few minor changes to bring it inline with the manual of style guidelines.--BelovedFreak 16:05, 11 August 2011 (UTC)

The Overzealous Deletion Award!

Cute grey kitten.jpg

This is a reminder to be kind to new users, allow them to contribute, to discuss and reach consensus before deleting other work.

OrenBochman (talk) 06:57, 16 August 2011 (UTC)

Sorry you feel that I haven't been kind to you, I'm sure it's frustrating to feel you've wasted time. I haven't deleted any article. If you click on the red link to your article, you will see who deleted it (User:Peridon), when, and why. It was deleted more than two hours after you created it because it met the criteria to be deleted "speedily". These criteria have evolved to allow administrators to delete certain articles without consensus—really, there already is consensus to delete those articles. If you want to discuss those criteria, you can do at Wikipedia talk:Criteria for speedy deletion. By the way, I very rarely request deletion on articles with no content when they are new, as I understand that new users don't necessarily know about the "speedy deletion" criteria, and don't get all the information down. For your article, I did a google search on the topic and found no significant coverage of it. I saw that it was unlikely to meet our notability guidelines for inclusion anyway. To be honest, apps are very unlikely to meet those guidelines. As an encylopedia, we do not include articles on all topics just because they exist. If you think that the app would meet those guidelines, then by all means try again, but make sure you show in the article how it is important. --BelovedFreak 08:21, 16 August 2011 (UTC)

Prod removals

Hi, those PROD's you removed from articles i had listed don't exactly meet your explaination of "removing prod; populated places are generally considered notable; suggest merger or WP:AFD discussion as more appropriate". A townland is a townland, not a settlement. Every piece of land is populated however there are over 60'000 townlands in Ireland, many of which have no-one living on them, and many others may only have a few farmhouses and nothing else on them. Is that still notable especially for those articles i listed that aren't even mentionmed on any census staistic data? Mabuska (talk) 10:28, 19 August 2011 (UTC)

Hi, still notable? I don't know, and I fully admit that I'm not that familiar with Irish geographical divisions. However, they don't seem to me to be "uncontroversially deletion candidates" which is what PRODs are for. If there has been previous discussion and consensus has developed that they are not notable, then fair enough, but that wasn't mentioned in the PRODs. In the absence of consensus that says townlands are not considered notable, WP:AFD seems a more appropriate venue. At the very least, I would have thought relevant information could be merged elsewhere (a list perhaps?) and redirects could be retained to help readers search for that information. As I say, I'm not familiar with townlands and I'm not saying that they necessarily are notable, I just don't think PROD-ing is the best way to go for these. If I have missed some previous discussion/consensus on this, and they have been determined to be non-notable, then why not just merge any info worth salvaging & redirect? --BelovedFreak 10:41, 19 August 2011 (UTC)
Merging would be the best solution i suppose. Thanks. Mabuska (talk) 20:30, 29 August 2011 (UTC)

Paley and Austin

I see you are working nicely through your list of churches. I am doing all sorts of things at present, but if you want me to keep away from any of your future plans, please let me know. And, as you have better sources than I, please improve/correct any of the articles I have started. Cheers. --Peter I. Vardy (talk) 12:06, 19 August 2011 (UTC)

Don't have tonnes of sources, just sometimes I see certain churches mentioned when I'm browsing in the library. I'm not sure of my future plans at the moment. I think I may concentrate on a few non-churchy buildings, like piers, so you're probably in no danger of overlapping! :) --BelovedFreak 19:33, 19 August 2011 (UTC)

Redirecting of Articles

I'am currently looking for sources to add more refrences so please give me some time in editing.Also take note that Songs of the Sea is a fountain.I think you might have mistook it with the soundtrack album.

Thanks for the tip you left me.

Regards Maglame

7:05 23 August 2011 (UTC)

Yes you're right, I did get the two confused. Sorry about that. I hope you understand what I'm saying about the other ones though. Only actual fountains should be in that category. I'm glad you're looking for more references. To help demonstrate notability, you really need to include sources that have nothing to do with the company involved, like newspaper articles, magazine articles or books, that are written by people who have nothing to do with the musical fountain. The same goes for all the other articles about Sentosa Island/the musical fountain etc. Otherwise, they might not be notable enough for separate articles. --BelovedFreak 11:27, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

Thanks: AfD

Thanks for the message about articles for deletion and nomination. I looked pretty hard and I found it very difficult to find the proper protocol for nomination. (I'm pretty sure that this was my first such attempt.) Thank you for completing the process.Dogru144 (talk) 16:09, 26 August 2011 (UTC)

Discussion on X-Files season articles

Hi Belovedfreak. I don't know if you're still interested in the work done on The X-Files here, but there's a discussion over on the Wikiproject here that could use some input. The project is essentially dead so I figured it would be best to solicit opinions from editors individually as well. Any input you have would be great. Thanks!

Yes, I haven't seen that ClueBot had already given the final warning. Anyway, suppose that the IP continues with vandalism, what can I do? Somebody maybe have already given the final warning, and I can only report this IP but I cannot block it. So the IP can do as many vandalism as it wants. Do you understand what I'm telling you :-)?--Frigotoni ...i'm here; 16:21, 14 September 2011 (UTC)

Yes, I know that until 24h the person it's the same, anyway I'll report the IP (on WP:AIV) even if IP is not blocked straight away.--Frigotoni ...i'm here; 11:31, 15 September 2011 (UTC)

Your statement might go a long way

Ok, I hate to call it a "victim impact statement", however, seeing that it was a number of attacks on you that led to this block, would you care to make a statement there as to whether you accept the apology, or whether additional off-wiki issues might have occurred. You don't have to, if you don't want to (talk→ BWilkins ←track) 10:53, 15 September 2011 (UTC)

12 Songs of Christmas

Thanks again for offering to review the article. Can you tell why there are so many red links on the article? Looking at the diff between the current version and the version prior to the review does not reveal why the article and template have so many red links. I thought you might have a better eagle eye than I seem to have. --Another Believer (Talk) 02:44, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

You're welcome. Your articles always seem to be very well-preapred, so it's a pleasure. As for the red links - I'm not quite sure what you mean. I personally see quite a few dark red links, particularly in the template, and for example for the composer names of the first track. That's because my preferences are set so that links to articles less than 2,500 bytes show up as dark red. Have you clicked someething in your preferences? Or do you mean they are showing up as links to empty articles? --BelovedFreak 07:56, 20 September 2011 (UTC)
That's the thing. There are articles for all linked albums in the template and for the composers of the first track. If you view the article's history and view a version of the article a few diffs back, the links are not red. (Thanks for your kind words, by the way.) --Another Believer (Talk) 04:53, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
Hmm... for me, there is no difference when I compare with earlier diffs. That's why I was wondering if something had changed in your preferences (under the appearance tag, bottom part that says advanced settings, the bit that says "threshold for stub link"). If not, perhaps try asking at WP:VP/T? --BelovedFreak 07:50, 21 September 2011 (UTC)

Adding External Links

Hello, I believe the links I'm adding are within Wikipedia's guidelines. The guideline page outlines this occasion for posting links:

  1. Sites that contain neutral and accurate material that is relevant to an encyclopedic understanding of the subject and cannot be integrated into the Wikipedia article due to copyright issues,
  2. amount of detail (such as professional athlete statistics, movie or television credits, interview transcripts, or online textbooks), or other reasons.

I work for the Utah Museum of Fine Arts and in order to comply with our copyrights to specific artworks and to provide access to specific works we are connecting records about artists and their works from our website to Wikipedia. The University of Utah, our parent organization, asks us to keep all information on our website as it is easiest to update and add information to our database and have people access it through links than it is to seek out all of the places where we can contribute information and then change facts and images should they be incorrect. We uphold the highest academic standards and want to make sure that any information we push out is controlled for quality and accuracy. As for the conflict of interest, yes I work for the Museum. Our motivations are to comply with University copyright restrictions while contributing to the academic integrity of Wikipedia. I hope that I'm understanding the guidelines correctly and complying. Please clarify if I am not. Thank youCris Baczek (talk) 16:15, 21 September 2011 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cris Baczek (talkcontribs)

Conflict of interest on my submissions

I seem to have had a conflict of interest pop up on two of my three page contributions recently, yet the articles are written from a neutral standpoint, include many references and have cross links to other wiki pages that are relevant. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mghurston (talkcontribs) 18:34, 6 October 2011 (UTC)

Replied at your talkpage. --BelovedFreak 20:50, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
Thank you for your reply. I do contribute pages on topics I like and according to the COI while it's discouraged to create these pages it's not a violation when it's written in a neutral tone and sources are cited appropriately. The only real issue I could see is that I didn't disclose on my talk page that I was involved in the past with any said group or company, which I'm more than happy to do moving forward. In specific regards to miraDry, I have put a request in to have an article written on the matter as hyperhidrosis had been an issue I had to deal with most of my adult life, though I think my intiial article would have been a good starting point.
For Team San Jose, they're a pretty prominent company here in the Bay Area (where I live) and in the news often as they are comprised of Union, Hotel, Art and San Jose City Officials and I think much more could be written on them, though I would not personally write on those subjects as I doubt my ability to remain neutral on those political items.
As for Morbidgames, that is a company I founded, and I believe the user you mentioned may be one my contractors who had mentioned to us about creating an initial wiki page when our marketing group noticed that many other indie publishers had began popping up with wiki pages. I find the page to be a lot better from a wikipedia standpoint than some of the other indie publisher pages that are unflagged and only a paragraph and some links (not saying who, just saying it). — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mghurston (talkcontribs) 21:17, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
