So this is my talk page. I guess you can talk about me or whatever.

Disambiguation pages[edit]

Hallo, thanks for editing the Or disambiguation page. Unfortunately there's a rule that abbreviations etc only get included in disambiguation pages if they are used within the "target" article, the one the entry is leading to (in this case Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire). If you believe that the abbreviation "OR" is used for that game enough to be significant, please add that fact to the article first, and if this is accepted (leave it a couple of days in case anyone disagress with the addition), then that's the time to add it to the disambiguation page. Welcome to Wikipedia, and Happy Editing! PamD 14:25, 6 February 2015 (UTC)

Thank you, PamD! Benjamin (talk) 15:05, 6 February 2015 (UTC)

Editing talk comments at Bromance Deletion[edit]

Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia. However, talk pages are meant to be a record of a discussion; deleting or editing legitimate comments, as you did at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Bromance (2nd nomination), is considered bad practice, even if you meant well. Even making spelling and grammatical corrections in others' comments is generally frowned upon, as it tends to irritate the users whose comments you are correcting. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you. SPACKlick (talk) 12:40, 18 February 2015 (UTC)

Sorry about that, my bad, thanks, SPACKlick. Benjamin (talk) 16:53, 18 February 2015 (UTC)

Disruptive Edits[edit]

Information icon Greetings. At least one of your recent edits, such as the edit you made to Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, did not appear to be constructive and has been or will be reverted or removed. Although everyone is welcome to contribute to Wikipedia, please take some time to familiarise yourself with our policies and guidelines. You can find information about these at our welcome page which also provides further information about contributing constructively to this encyclopedia. If you only meant to make some test edits, please use the sandbox for that. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you may leave a message on my talk page. Thank you.

Accidental vandalism[edit]

Speedy deletion nomination of Seedr[edit]

Hello Benjaminikuta,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Seedr for deletion, because the article doesn't clearly say why the subject is important enough to be included in an encyclopedia.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. Vinod 10:19, 17 April 2016 (UTC)

Draft:Students for Rand concern[edit]

Hi there, I'm HasteurBot. I just wanted to let you know that Draft:Students for Rand, a page you created, has not been edited in 5 months. The Articles for Creation space is not an indefinite storage location for content that is not appropriate for articlespace.

If your submission is not edited soon, it could be nominated for deletion. If you would like to attempt to save it, you will need to improve it.

You may request Userfication of the content if it meets requirements.

If the deletion has already occured, instructions on how you may be able to retrieve it are available at WP:REFUND/G13.

Thank you for your attention. HasteurBot (talk) 01:32, 9 June 2016 (UTC)

June 2016[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm MartinZ02. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Liberalism, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed and archived in the page history for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you.

A cup of coffee for you![edit]

Cup-o-coffee-simple.svg I saw that your userpage says that you are in Riverside.

Possible copyright violation(s)[edit]

Your contributions are appreciated. You are very welcome here. However, I have encountered possible copyright violation(s). Some or all of the content you added in recent edits to Talk:Basal metabolic rate and User:Benjaminikuta/todo appears to have been copy pasted from this source and has been removed.

Please remember that you must write in your own words. We cannot copy and paste from other websites. If I have made an error, please accept my apologies.

For further information, please read Wikipedia:Copyright violations. If you have questions, please ask. Best wishes, Anna Frodesiak (talk) 20:17, 22 December 2016 (UTC)

Woah, you completely deleted my userpage?

Could you at least let me make a copy of it before you delete it forever?
Anna Frodesiak
Benjamin (talk) 20:33, 22 December 2016 (UTC)
Hi there. I just noticed that. I've restored the non-copyvio parts. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 20:35, 22 December 2016 (UTC)

Anna Frodesiak

Thanks.

What did you delete, exactly?

It looks quite a bit different than I remember now... = /

Benjamin (talk) 20:39, 22 December 2016 (UTC)

I deleted the paragraph that was copypasted from https://examine.com/nutrition/does-metabolism-vary-between-two-people/
I will check to see if I deleted anything else. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 20:42, 22 December 2016 (UTC)
I double checked. I just removed the paragraph "One study[1] noted that one standard.......range of 150-270kcal depending on brand." Everything else remains.
Anna Frodesiak (talk) 20:45, 22 December 2016 (UTC)
Anna Frodesiak

Thanks.

I'm still a little bit upset that the edit history is gone though...

If you would have just told me, I would have gladly removed the offending portion...

Benjamin (talk) 20:49, 22 December 2016 (UTC)

I thought the whole page was a copyvio. When that happens in userspace, admins usually prefer deletion rather that reversion. Anyhow, no worries. The offending text is now gone. Happy editing. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 20:54, 22 December 2016 (UTC)

Images needing articles[edit]

Your refdesk post[edit]

It was removed repeatedly. There are several members of the community who consider it trolling or inappropriate. Please, find another place to ask such questions. I am not judging you or the post. I am simply saying that part of the community does not wish it there. That means such a post is disruptive.

Also, what sort of due diligence did you do prior to the post? Did you search lots and lots of academic sites first to find an answer elsewhere?

Please, for the sake of the community, please just edit constructively in the mainspace and forget about asking such questions at the refdesk. We can write an article together if you like. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 06:23, 24 December 2016 (UTC)

Anna Frodesiak
Thank you for your reply.
What about the question is bad, the wording, or the subject matter, or something else?
Benjamin (talk) 07:07, 24 December 2016 (UTC)


I do not know exactly, but I know they do not like it. Also, the refdesk is a magnet for trolling posts, so posts such as yours are suspect. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 07:11, 24 December 2016 (UTC)
I don't see why I should be removed, if I follow the guidelines.
If I ought to be removed when I'm following the guidelines, perhaps the guidelines should be changed?
Benjamin (talk) 07:14, 24 December 2016 (UTC)
There are also guidelines that say editing disruptively is not permitted.
You have made 135 edits to the mainspace and now wish to see guidelines changed so you can post about the size of "assholes" and "vaginas" after such posts were removed by numerous members of the community.
Are you here to help build the encyclopedia or not? If you are, I suggest you start building. Please drop this. It is a waste of keystrokes and my patience is nearing an end. Thank you. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 07:20, 24 December 2016 (UTC)
I wasn't trying to be disruptive. Why was my question disruptive? I'm sorry for the misunderstanding. I didn't mean to suggest that the guidelines should be changed in my favor, but rather, that they should reflect what the community would consider acceptable. If talking about vaginas should be off limits for the reference desk, then it should be stated, so that I know not to ask such questions in the first place.
Benjamin (talk) 07:41, 24 December 2016 (UTC)
Anna Frodesiak I read the page on disruptive editing, and I don't see how my edits were disruptive. Benjamin (talk) 08:03, 24 December 2016 (UTC)
  • I noticed that one of the times you restored the question, you used a severely inappropriate edit summary]. Personal attacks against IP editors are still personal attacks. We get a lot of trolling questions obsessed with a variety of topics, but genitalia is one of the more common ones. Your use of the word "asshole" instead of "anus" is one thing that makes the post seem more like a troll post than a sincere academic question. If you had said "are there any scientific sources comparing relative the sizes of anuses, hands, and mouths of humans and other primates?" Ian.thomson (talk) 09:10, 24 December 2016 (UTC)
That IP is not me. Thank you for your help rewording my question. Benjamin (talk) 09:15, 24 December 2016 (UTC)
If it's not you, then you get the idea about what sort of people usually make that kind of post. Ian.thomson (talk) 09:24, 24 December 2016 (UTC)

Sex articles[edit]

Okay, I checked your userpage and contribs. Hmmmm, male, teenager, a fair number of edits related to sex. Okay, nothing wrong with that. So, why not use that interest constructively. Consider joining:

Post at the talk pages there with something like:

"...Hi. I am interested in starting an article to do with sex. Please suggest one that is notable and has lots of references out there, preferably a list article..."

Why a list article? Those often get really good hits. I started List of sandwiches years ago and it gets around 350,000 hits a year. Imagine a really good sex article you wrote read by that many people. Nice.

Do you know about WP:DYK? Your article can hit the front page and get thousands of hits. Even better is to make an article that gets thousands of hits a month and educates people for decades. Think about it. Best, Anna Frodesiak (talk) 06:32, 24 December 2016 (UTC)

Indent your posts[edit]

QUICK TIP

Indent your posts with colons, like this:

I like bunnies.
:Me too.
::So, we both like bunnies?
:::Yep. Looks that way.
::::Pretty stupid conversaton.
:::::Yep.

Did I tell you I'm left handed?
:No kidding? Me too. :)

I like kittens.
:Me too.
::So, we both like kittens.

etc. etc.

Your draft article, Draft:Students for Rand[edit]

Hello, Benjaminikuta. It has been over six months since you last edited your Articles for Creation draft article submission, "Students for Rand".

In accordance with our policy that Articles for Creation is not for the indefinite hosting of material deemed unsuitable for the encyclopedia mainspace, the draft has been nominated for deletion. If you plan on working on it further, or editing it to address the issues raised if it was declined, simply edit the submission and remove the {{db-afc}} or {{db-g13}} code.

If your submission has already been deleted by the time you get there, and you wish to retrieve it, you can request its undeletion by following the instructions at this link. An administrator will, in most cases, restore the submission so you can continue to work on it.

Thanks for your submission to Wikipedia, and happy editing. 1989 (talk) 01:02, 16 January 2017 (UTC)

January 2017[edit]

Information icon Please refrain from making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia, as you did at Fat acceptance movement. Your edits appear to be disruptive and have been reverted.

Please ensure you are familiar with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines, and please do not continue to make edits that appear disruptive. Continual disruptive editing may result in loss of editing privileges. Medical information must be referenced with sources adhering to WP:MEDRS. Your edits (restoring an IP editor) do not. EvergreenFir (talk) 20:08, 18 January 2017 (UTC)

User:EvergreenFir, I posted to the talk page, but you didn't respond. Why do you think the sources are unreliable? They are used on a couple different articles. Please help me make my edits better, rather than just reverting me. Benjamin (talk) 20:52, 18 January 2017 (UTC)

Sorry, I missed your comment on the article talk page. That was my fault. The issue is that medical statements require a different level of source. WP:MEDRS explains it, but maybe someone like Doc James can explain it a bit better. EvergreenFir (talk) 21:16, 18 January 2017 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Social programs in the United States, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page CATO. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 10:11, 11 May 2017 (UTC)

Curious if you had some input on the poverty discussion[edit]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:List_of_common_misconceptions — Preceding unsigned comment added by Squatch347 (talkcontribs) 20:19, 24 September 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for the message. I appreciate your contributions. I'm currently busy irl, but let me know in a couple days if you'd like me to comment further. Benjamin (talk) 00:05, 26 September 2018 (UTC)
It seems the conversation has stalled a bit. Perhaps I'm biased, but I really feel this section should be reverted to the last consensus point. I feel our newest contributor wants to make the entry into a huge discussion about poverty nuances rather than addressing the simple misconception. I'm probably reading into it, but I'm also worried that this particular correction has some baggage for many people, so they have a harder time accepting a correction. Squatch347 (talk) 11:26, 25 October 2018 (UTC)
Hello. Thanks for the message, and thanks for participating in the discussion. Yes, as I've said, I think it should be kept short and to the point. It should focus on the misconception itself, because that's the subject of this article. The controversy should be mentioned when it falls within the scope of the other articles. And yes, it is obvious that people have a hard time accepting it because of the political implications. Benjamin (talk) 00:30, 26 October 2018 (UTC)

Copying within Wikipedia[edit]

Please review Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia.

When you copy-paste content from one article to another, as you did a number of times on List of common misconceptions: [3][4][5][6][7][8], it violates the basic attribution rules of Wikipedia. You have to at least link back to the diff you got the content from. However, List of common misconceptions is written in a terse style different from most articles, and so it doesn't work well to copy-paste entire paragraphs anyway. Entries need to be much shorter, and so you should rewrite it in the briefest possible way, avoiding copyright problems and bloating the list.

Remember also that footnotes are often only names, like <ref name="asdf"/>, so if you copy the ref name without the full citation, you introduce errors such as here "The named reference MHF was invoked but never defined". Again, this is avoidable by writing original content. --Dennis Bratland (talk) 16:37, 12 November 2018 (UTC)

Economic inequality[edit]

Hi Benjaminikuta, why don't you help me clean up Economic inequality. Here are two links: WP:SPLIT and WP:SUMMARY. I split the page because it was about 5x the recommended size. Now, I think doing a nice summary style would be helpful. I say over the next month maybe we can clean it up. Seahawk01 (talk) 06:35, 17 November 2018 (UTC)

Guideline and policy news

  • Following a request for comment, the Mediation Committee is now closed and will no longer be accepting case requests.
  • A request for comment is in progress to determine whether members of the Bot Approvals Group should satisfy activity requirements in order to remain in that role.
  • A request for comment is in progress regarding whether to change the administrator inactivity policy, such that administrators "who have made no logged administrative actions for at least 12 months may be desysopped". Currently, the policy states that administrators "who have made neither edits nor administrative actions for at least 12 months may be desysopped".
  • A proposal has been made to temporarily restrict editing of the Main Page to interface administrators in order to mitigate the impact of compromised accounts.

Technical news

Arbitration

Miscellaneous

  • In late November, an attacker compromised multiple accounts, including at least four administrator accounts, and used them to vandalize Wikipedia. If you have ever used your current password on any other website, you should change it immediately. Sharing the same password across multiple websites makes your account vulnerable, especially if your password was used on a website that suffered a data breach. As these incidents have shown, these concerns are not pure fantasies.
  • Wikipedia policy requires administrators to have strong passwords. To further reinforce security, administrators should also consider enabling two-factor authentication. A committed identity can be used to verify that you are the true account owner in the event that your account is compromised and/or you are unable to log in.

Administrators' newsletter – January 2019[edit]

News and updates for administrators from the past month (December 2018).

Guideline and policy news

  1. G14 (new): Disambiguation pages that disambiguate only zero or one existing pages are now covered under the new G14 criterion (discussion). This is {{db-disambig}}; the text is unchanged and candidates may be found in Category:Candidates for speedy deletion as unnecessary disambiguation pages.
  2. R4 (new): Redirects in the file namespace (and no file links) that have the same name as a file or redirect at Commons are now covered under the new R4 criterion (discussion). This is {{db-redircom}}; the text is unchanged.
  3. G13 (expanded): Userspace drafts containing only the default Article Wizard text are now covered under G13 along with other drafts (discussion). Such blank drafts are now eligible after six months rather than one year, and taggers continue to use {{db-blankdraft}}.

Technical news

  • Starting on December 13, the Wikimedia Foundation security team implemented new password policy and requirements. Privileged accounts (administrators, bureaucrats, checkusers, oversighters, interface administrators, bots, edit filter managers/helpers, template editors, et al.) must have a password at least 10 characters in length. All accounts must have a password:
  1. At least 8 characters in length
  2. Not in the 100,000 most popular passwords (defined by the Password Blacklist library)
  3. Different from their username
User accounts not meeting these requirements will be prompted to update their password accordingly. More information is available on MediaWiki.org.
  • Blocked administrators may now block the administrator that blocked them. This was done to mitigate the possibility that a compromised administrator account would block all other active administrators, complementing the removal of the ability to unblock oneself outside of self-imposed blocks. A request for comment is currently in progress to determine whether the blocking policy should be updated regarding this change.
  • {{Copyvio-revdel}} now has a link to open the history with the RevDel checkboxes already filled in.

Arbitration

Miscellaneous

  • Accounts continue to be compromised on a regular basis. Evidence shows this is entirely due to the accounts having the same password that was used on another website that suffered a data breach. If you have ever used your current password on any other website, you should change it immediately.
  • Around 22% of admins have enabled two-factor authentication, up from 20% in June 2018. If you haven't already enabled it, please consider doing so. Regardless of whether you use 2FA, please practice appropriate account security by ensuring your password is secure and unique to Wikimedia.

References[edit]

Just follow the steps 1, 2 and 3 as shown and fill in the details

Thank you for contributing to Wikipedia. Remember that when adding content about health, please only use high-quality reliable sources as references. We typically use review articles, major textbooks and position statements of national or international organizations (There are several kinds of sources that discuss health: here is how the community classifies them and uses them). WP:MEDHOW walks you through editing step by step. A list of resources to help edit health content can be found here. The edit box has a built-in citation tool to easily format references based on the PMID or ISBN.

  1. While editing any article or a wikipage, on the top of the edit window you will see a toolbar which says "cite" click on it
  2. Then click on "templates",
  3. Choose the most appropriate template and fill in the details beside a magnifying glass followed by clicking said button,
  4. If the article is available in Pubmed Central, you have to add the pmc parameter manually -- click on "show additional fields" in the template and you will see the "pmc" field. Please add just the number and don't include "PMC".

We also provide style advice about the structure and content of medicine-related encyclopedia articles. The welcome page is another good place to learn about editing the encyclopedia. If you have any questions, please feel free to drop me a note. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 17:19, 11 January 2019 (UTC)

Recent Suspension[edit]

Thanks for the kind note. It was rather discouraging at first. After all, it seems clearly to have been started by an editor who is attempting to suppress dissenting opinion on an AFD page for Tabiti. When reviewed in depth a lot of the accusations were nonsensical and the similarities not in style, but in substance (which other editors had also agreed with). I did get a great response from the Admin who initially reviewed it and he seems to have come around to my point of view. I'd like to get him to update the post to a no finding, but the guy is pretty swamped with work so it will probably be slow.

It is discouraging that we have so many editors who really want to own a page and will take any effort necessary to get other editors removed who disagree with them. Squatch347 (talk) 17:37, 15 January 2019 (UTC)

Guideline and policy news

  • A request for comment is currently open to reevaluate the activity requirements for administrators.
  • Administrators who are blocked have the technical ability to block the administrator who blocked their own account. A recent request for comment has amended the blocking policy to clarify that this ability should only be used in exceptional circumstances, such as account compromises, where there is a clear and immediate need.
  • A request for comment closed with a consensus in favor of deprecating The Sun as a permissible reference, and creating an edit filter to warn users who attempt to cite it.

Technical news

  • A discussion regarding an overhaul of the format and appearance of Wikipedia:Requests for page protection is in progress (permalink). The proposed changes will make it easier to create requests for those who are not using Twinkle. The workflow for administrators at this venue will largely be unchanged. Additionally, there are plans to archive requests similar to how it is done at WP:PERM, where historical records are kept so that prior requests can more easily be searched for.

Musk/Grimes[edit]

I don't know if this is the right way to respond, but here I am.

I didn't navigate the talk page for Elon Musk, I usually don't look at them as they can be at times hard to navigate and sometimes unhelpful (at least in my limited experiences). I only saw that both his article and Grimes' article said they were dating under their "Personal Life" sections with nothing noting their separation, as had been done for any other relationship. When I searched for sources about an ending of their relationship, I didn't find any. I was just trying to make the page consistent with itself so readers would not get confused.

If you or anyone else thinks my edit is misleading/uninformed, you have my permission to remove it. I didn't mean to mislead anyone. My apologies if anyone thought this was improper. Thanks for the heads up. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Pbeier (talkcontribs) 23:36, 20 February 2019 (UTC)

I appreciate you taking the time to edit. If you happen across a source that says they're still dating, feel free to add it. Benjamin (talk) 23:39, 20 February 2019 (UTC)

Don't take this too seriously. Someone just wants to let you know you did something silly.

You have been trouted for: Reverting my edit on antidepressants. Sorry to delete your edit, but that particular study you posted is not relevant to the STAR*D trial section you posted it under. Additionally, on medical pages we prefer to summaries the existing state of evidence than just cite and explain individual studies. While we may sometimes cite and explain individual studies, this is the exception rather than the rule. I know that the page on antidepressants does this often (which may help to explain why it lost it's good article status), but I'm trying to clean things up. Therefor I'm going to revert the change.

  • XTools Admin Stats, a tool to list admins by administrative actions, has been revamped to support more types of log entries such as AbuseFilter changes. Two additional tools have been integrated into it as well: Steward Stats and Patroller Stats.

Arbitration

  • In response to the continuing compromise of administrator accounts, the Arbitration Committee passed a motion amending the procedures for return of permissions (diff). In such cases, the committee will review all available information to determine whether the administrator followed "appropriate personal security practices" before restoring permissions; administrators found failing to have adequately done so will not be resysopped automatically. All current administrators have been notified of this change.
  • Following a formal ratification process, the arbitration policy has been amended (diff). Specifically, the two-thirds majority required to remove or suspend an arbitrator now excludes (1) the arbitrator facing suspension or removal, and (2) any inactive arbitrator who does not respond within 30 days to attempts to solicit their feedback on the resolution through all known methods of communication.

Semantic Web and TDM – a ContentMine view

Two dozen issues, and this may be the last, a valediction at least for a while.

It's time for a two-year summation of ContentMine projects involving TDM (text and data mining).

Wikidata and now Structured Data on Commons represent the overlap of Wikimedia with the Semantic Web. This common ground is helping to convert an engineering concept into a movement. TDM generally has little enough connection with the Semantic Web, being instead in the orbit of machine learning which is no respecter of the semantic. Don't break a taboo by asking bots "and what do you mean by that?"

The ScienceSource project innovates in TDM, by storing its text mining results in a Wikibase site. It strives for compliance of its fact mining, on drug treatments of diseases, with an automated form of the relevant Wikipedia referencing guideline MEDRS. Where WikiFactMine set up an API for reuse of its results, ScienceSource has a SPARQL query service, with look-and-feel exactly that of Wikidata's at query.wikidata.org. It also now has a custom front end, and its content can be federated, in other words used in data mashups: it is one of over 50 sites that can federate with Wikidata.

The human factor comes to bear through the front end, which combines a link to the HTML version of a paper, text mining results organised in drug and disease columns, and a SPARQL display of nearby drug and disease terms. Much software to develop and explain, so little time! Rather than telling the tale, Facto Post brings you ScienceSource links, starting from the how-to video, lower right.

ScienceSourceReview, introductory video: but you need run it from the original upload file on Commons
Links for participation

The review tool requires a log in on sciencesource.wmflabs.org, and an OAuth permission (bottom of a review page) to operate. It can be used in simple and more advanced workflows. Examples of queries for the latter are at d:Wikidata_talk:ScienceSource project/Queries#SS_disease_list and d:Wikidata_talk:ScienceSource_project/Queries#NDF-RT issue.

Please be aware that this is a research project in development, and may have outages for planned maintenance. That will apply for the next few days, at least. The ScienceSource wiki main page carries information on practical matters. Email is not enabled on the wiki: use site mail here to Charles Matthews in case of difficulty, or if you need support. Further explanatory videos will be put into commons:Category:ContentMine videos.
