Pace Tower[edit]

  • No way
  • If you can not add any information don't add. But you must not delete any information. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mohsin17 (talkcontribs) 10:52, 21 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Reverted you again, [1] and [2] . Your are straight going into a block if your are continuing this. Cite a reliable source for the hight of the building and for the completion year. Stating that it is going to be completed in 2014 and, at the same time, listening it under 'Complete Buildings' is more than strange. In List of tallest buildings in Lahore, Pace Tower is in the section ' Under construction buildings' with a source for a hight of 76 m. Bring a source for your 88 m. --Ben Ben (talk) 18:53, 21 October 2013 (UTC)
  • I already told you that it is topped out...and our company has measured its length...unfortunately, middle class companies do not have the internet service and websites in third world countries. If you want the proof, check it on Google maps and from google earyth u can see the height — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mohsin17 (talkcontribs) 14:47, 24 October 2013 (UTC)


how did I vandalize the Lockhart Texas page if what I put on there is accurate and factual information, BigMexican is a notable person from that town and anyone from that town will agree with me. Just because BigMex is a rapper/hip hop artist does that not make him a note able person? He won the 2012 Song of the Year award from 88.7fm KAZI out of Austin,TX — Preceding unsigned comment added by Thebigmeskin (talkcontribs) 21:57, 21 November 2013 (UTC+1)

Hi, I am sorry for giving you a 'last warning' on your talk page. This was my fault. Saw you editing around User:DATBOIRIVA and misinterpreted it as a 'boy gang edit drive' on Lockhart, Texas. I deleted my edit from your talk page. For, what is notable or not on Wikipedia, there is a guideline: Wikipedia:Notability (music). --Ben Ben (talk) 21:46, 23 November 2013 (UTC)
So since you miss interpreted my post on the Lockhart Texas page, does that mean I am allowed to repost my original edit to the Lockhart Texas page? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Thebigmeskin (talkcontribs) 03:43, 24 November 2013 (UTC)
I am not the doorkeeper of Wikipedia, I'm just an editor as you are. Sure you are allowed to insert this information about your local musician, the same way as anybody else (including me) is allowed to delete it. I would delete it again, as long as you can't show this musican is notable (<- click this blue word and read). This is how Wikipedia works. --Ben Ben (talk) 10:00, 24 November 2013 (UTC)

Sorry for the following template, but I declined your speedy deletion[edit]

Proposed deletion of Solomon's Temple BBS[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Solomon's Temple BBS has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Speedy deletion declined, but this article does not give any inkling why this particular BBS is notable, and the New York Times reference does not mention this. Creator has 7 days to fix the issues tagged.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

A kitten for you![edit]


Thank you for your patience in my changing your speedy deletion tag to a proposed deletion instead.

Bearian (talk) 22:37, 18 December 2013 (UTC)

  • Thank you for your kind way of letting me know this. I haven't any problems with your changes. You are welcome. --Ben Ben (talk) 01:40, 21 December 2013 (UTC)

The Blazers[edit]

Pleaase can you post an answer to my questions at the Blazers Talk Page. Talk:The Blazers Thanks (Surfing Today (talk) 04:50, 3 May 2014 (UTC))

Hello, answer has been given by Tokyogirl79. I totally agree with her explanations about primary sources and promotional tone (the music business sells music, not news ...). Say thanks to her for improving your article. --Ben Ben (talk) 09:08, 3 May 2014 (UTC)
Hi, I'm not in total agreement with what you say but I will thank her. Anyway she has thinned it out some but it looks OK and perhaps this can be a way for others to add to the article and we'll see where it goes from there. Thanks. (Surfing Today (talk) 14:05, 3 May 2014 (UTC))



A quick heads up as to the reasons it was unreviewed would be useful so have an idea of what I missed would be useful. Amortias (T)(C) 17:48, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

Hi, i have marked it for speedy deletion as an obvious hoax. This is on the internet for years, just google it. --Ben Ben (talk) 18:00, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Schizoid Lloyd[edit]

Hello Ben Ben. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Schizoid Lloyd, 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. §FreeRangeFrogcroak 22:26, 19 June 2014 (UTC)

  • Yeah, it's not much, but it's something. Thanks FreeRangeFrog. Ben, I tried to make something out of it but couldn't do much. I don't think they are planning to tour Germany soon. That NH-Pop live thing, I'll write that up one of these days. It's a pretty serious competition, with live shows, tours, etc, for five selected bands. But it is regional (North Holland, not the whole country), so I'll stay on the safe side and say that merely participating is probably not enough for notability; even winning it may not be. We'll see. Thanks, Drmies (talk) 13:43, 21 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Hello, you did a good job in deleting the advertising from the label and adding references in Nederlands (can't read it, I'm from the south). Yes, this 'local character' of the band and the appearance that it was written by a member of the band or a friend had led me decide to tag the article. And :), the fact that someone or something is unknown in Germany is never my base for a decision when I'm on I'm a grown up, even if my level of English may give you the impression that I'm probably a school boy. --Ben Ben (talk) 14:08, 21 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Sorry--don't know what gave you the impression that I thought of you as a schoolboy. Drmies (talk) 19:18, 21 June 2014 (UTC)

Made up vs hoax[edit]

Referring to Tossing The Beef, that was a definite hoax, not a made-up. There is a difference, which is why made-up was brought in. Made-up is for things that could well be real, but no-one outside the little group of friends that made it up knows or cares about it. Examples are drinking games invented last night (and usually resembling Beer Pong), a new word that 'everyone' at Joseph P. Bloggs High is using (although why is not easy to understand), or even a new method of trisecting angles (invented by someone in third grade). AGF comes in. These things might well exist. They will never become famous (for a value of never equal to 99.99% certain). Now, spraying minced beef around a house is not something to AGF on. It's total bollocks. It's a clear attempt to put junk onto Wikipedia to try to discredit the encyclopaedia, or at best to sit and snigger about. Hoax, in other words. Both classes get deleted, but it helps the admins looking back if they see hoaxes in the record to assess the user quickly and block sooner rather than later. BTW New (junk) religions are a borderline case here. They could be either - but are best treated as hoax. Peridon (talk) 23:27, 10 November 2014 (UTC)

Hello Peridion, thank's for your detailed explanation. --Ben Ben (talk) 14:42, 13 November 2014 (UTC)

Battle of Corunna[edit]

Thank you for removing the stray {{sfn| with this edit 13 December 2014. However your alteration of

  • {{citation |last=Esdaile |first=Charles| year=2003a


  • {{citation |last=Esdaile |first=Charles| year=2003

was not helpful. The alpha character is used to separate out two or more publication in the same year (Please see: Help:Shortened footnotes#Date). In this case:

  1. Esdaile, Charles (2003a) [2002], The Peninsular War, Penguin Books, ISBN 0-14-027370-0
  2. Esdaile, Charles (2003), The Peninsular War: A New History, New York: Palgrave Macmillan, ISBN 1403962316

This is necessary beacause the pagination between the two editions my not be the same. In altering the "year=2003a" to "year=2003" you have broken the the link in the {{harv}} template in footnote 24 that relied on the year being set to "2003a" in the long citation. Will you revert that part of your edit, or would you like me to do it? -- PBS (talk) 19:39, 13 December 2014 (UTC)

Just do it. --Ben Ben (talk) 23:37, 13 December 2014 (UTC)
