Ru Chih Huang article snafu[edit]

Dear Bennv3771, Thanks for moving my article, which I had intended to create in a sandbox not on the live encyclopedia. I'm taking a General Fellows class and I do not know how to use DRAFT so I deleted the material and will put it in one of my sandboxes correctly this time.LLMHoopes (talk) 14:49, 13 August 2018 (UTC)

@LLMHoopes: No problem. Remember to add "User:LLMHoopes/" before the sandbox name or whatever you create will show up as an article on Wikipedia instead. Bennv3771 (talk) 15:02, 13 August 2018 (UTC)

Bronze Cooley[edit]


I am requesting to retrieve the data from a recently deleted article, Bronze Cooley - YouTube Personality, so that I can improve upon it.


BCOOLEY (talk) 13:18, 26 August 2018 (UTC)
@BCOOLEY: Hi. I am not an admin so I cannot retrieve your deleted article. You can make your request here: Wikipedia:Requests for undeletion. Bennv3771 (talk) 13:20, 26 August 2018 (UTC)

I got to say, I appreciate you flagging it instead of coming to me directly.

Thanks @Bennv3771

Sincerely, BCOOLEY (talk) 13:29, 26 August 2018 (UTC)

@BCOOLEY: My Bad, you cannot request undeletion at the above link as your article was deleted under WP:CSD A7 and WP:CSD G11. Since you've already contacted the deleting admin, you can try asking for it to be emailed to you. It will however, not be restored to the mainspace. Please read the Wikipedia criteria for speedy deletion and the notability guidelines before creating an article to spare yourself the frustration of having your work deleted.

far right terroism[edit]

Wikipedia claims to have a neutral point of view, yet from what I`ve seen, they always talk down to conservatives and bring up liberals. Also, they said that racism against white people isn`t real when it indeed is, so I hate to say it but Wikipedia is not neutral and is in fact very biased. They also Refuse to admit that sexism against males exists when it does, as a matter of fact I couldn`t even stand being in certain lectures at college because of feminist professors and their discrimination against male students. But Wikipedia prevents me from telling the truth about modern society. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:19, 11 September 2018 (UTC)

NPR Newsletter No.13 18 September 2018[edit]

Hello Bennv3771, thank you for your work reviewing New Pages!

The New Page Feed currently has 2700 unreviewed articles, up from just 500 at the start of July. For a while we were falling behind by an average of about 40 articles per day, but we have stabilised more recently. Please review some articles from the back of the queue if you can (Sort by: 'Oldest' at Special:NewPagesFeed), as we are very close to having articles older than one month.

Project news
As part of this project, the feed will have some larger updates to functionality next month. Specifically, ORES predictions will be built in, which will automatically flag articles for potential issues such as vandalism or spam. Copyright violation detection will also be added to the new page feed. See the projects's talk page for more info.
Moving to Draft and Page Mover
  • Some unsuitable new articles can be best reviewed by moving them to the draft space, but reviewers need to do this carefully and sparingly. It is most useful for topics that look like they might have promise, but where the article as written would be unlikely to survive AfD. If the article can be easily fixed, or if the only issue is a lack of sourcing that is easily accessible, tagging or adding sources yourself is preferable. If sources do not appear to be available and the topic does not appear to be notable, tagging for deletion is preferable (PROD/AfD/CSD as appropriate). See additional guidance at WP:DRAFTIFY.
  • If the user moves the draft back to mainspace, or recreates it in mainspace, please do not re-draftify the article (although swapping it to maintain the page history may be advisable in the case of copy-paste moves). AfC is optional except for editors with a clear conflict of interest.
  • Articles that have been created in contravention of our paid-editing-requirements or written from a blatant NPOV perspective, or by authors with a clear COI might also be draftified at discretion.
  • The best tool for draftification is User:Evad37/MoveToDraft.js(info). Kindly adapt the text in the dialogue-pop-up as necessary (the default can also be changed like this). Note that if you do not have the Page Mover userright, the redirect from main will be automatically tagged as CSD R2, but in some cases it might be better to make this a redirect to a different page instead.
  • The Page Mover userright can be useful for New Page Reviewers; occasionally page swapping is needed during NPR activities, and it helps avoid excessive R2 nominations which must be processed by admins. Note that the Page Mover userright has higher requirements than the NPR userright, and is generally given to users active at Requested Moves. Only reviewers who are very experienced and are also very active reviewers are likely to be granted it solely for NPP activities.
List of other useful scripts for New Page Reviewing

  • Twinkle provides a lot of the same functionality as the page curation tools, and some reviewers prefer to use the Twinkle tools for some/all tasks. It can be activated simply in the gadgets section of 'preferences'. There are also a lot of options available at the Twinkle preferences panel after you install the gadget.
  • In terms of other gadgets for NPR, HotCat is worth turning on. It allows you to easily add, remove, and change categories on a page, with name suggestions.
  • MoreMenu also adds a bunch of very useful links for diagnosing and fixing page issues.
  • User:Equazcion/ScriptInstaller.js(info): Installing scripts doesn't have to be complicated. Go to your common.js and copy importScript( 'User:Equazcion/ScriptInstaller.js' ); into an empty line, now you can install all other scripts with the click of a button from the script page! (Note you need to be at the ".js" page for the script for the install button to appear, not the information page)
  • User:TheJosh/Scripts/NewPagePatrol.js(info): Creates a scrolling new pages list at the left side of the page. You can change the number of pages shown by adding the following to the next line on your common.js page (immediately after the line importing this script): npp_num_pages=20; (Recommended 20, but you can use any number from 1 to 50).
  • User:Primefac/revdel.js(info): Is requesting revdel complicated and time consuming? This script helps simplify the process. Just have the Copyvio source URL and go to the history page and collect your diff IDs and you can drop them into the script Popups and it will create a revdel request for you.
  • User:Lourdes/PageCuration.js(info): Creates a "Page Curation" link to Special:NewPagesFeed up near your sandbox link.
  • User:Writ Keeper/Scripts/deletionFinder.js: Creates links next to the title of each page which show up if it has been previously deleted or nominated for deletion.
  • User:Evad37/rater.js(info): A fantastic tool for adding WikiProject templates to article talk pages. If you add: rater_autostartNamespaces = 0; to the next line on your common.js, the prompt will pop up automatically if a page has no Wikiproject templates on the talk page (note: this can be a bit annoying if you review redirects or dab pages commonly).

Go here to remove your name if you wish to opt-out of future mailings. MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 23:11, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

DYK for Sabrina (comics)[edit]

Updated DYK query.svgOn 18 September 2018, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Sabrina (comics), which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that Sabrina, a critique of the modern "fake news" era, is the first graphic novel to be longlisted for the Booker Prize? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Sabrina (comics).

Age Before Beauty deleted link[edit]

In response to your message:' 'I'm Bennv3771. I wanted to let you know that one or more external links you added to Age Before Beauty have been removed because they seemed to be inappropriate for an encyclopedia. If you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page.

Yes you did made a mistake. Have you seen my work on the Age Before Beauty page on my website? It's work, it's absolutely not spam. It's perfectly appropriate for an encyclopedia. It's similar as a Wikipedia or IMDb page and very more complete. I've spent days and days to create these pages about the series for French speakers with all information, comments, photos and details... Sorry but my Age Before Beauty link has its perfect place here. PS: Are you an admin from Wikipedia team? Every year I donate to help Wikipedia but I do not think I want to do it again, thanks to you :( --Dyan Bretty (talk) 04:15, 19 September 2018 (UTC)Dyan Bretty

@Dyan Bretty: Please read WP:ELNO-- repeatedly adding external links to a fansite you created is not appropriate for an encyclopedia (see also the contributions of IP IP, IP etc). I am not an admin, but any editor is free to remove inappropriate external links. Bennv3771 (talk) 04:25, 19 September 2018 (UTC)
@Dyan Bretty: To clarify, by "spam" I was referring to the repeated insertion of the link to your website in articles relating to the actor. I was not calling your work on your website itself spam. Bennv3771 (talk) 04:38, 19 September 2018 (UTC)

Draft: Downball[edit]

Hi Bennv3771, thank you for previously reviewing my page titled Downball. I've now created a draft page at with multiple references and marked it for review. This is not as easy as it may appear because this game predates the internet and as mostly a childrens school yard game did not get much attention in literature.

Also currently there is simply a redirection from Downball to Foursquare. This redirection is unhelpful because it does not allow for a separate Downball page. I would like to suggest that there is benefit in having a separate Downball page.

with regards, Rockycape (talk) 05:22, 19 September 2018 (UTC)

@Rockycape: Hi. Thanks for starting the draft, I'll have a look at it when I have more time. I'm not familiar with either downball or four square, but if the games are similar and it is difficult to find references to establish downball's independent notability, perhaps you can consider merging the downball content into the four square article as a variation of the game. Bennv3771 (talk) 06:02, 19 September 2018 (UTC)

Hi Bennv3771, Thanks for your further suggestions and help generally. To continue the discussion, Downball and Four square are quite distinct from each other just like squash and tennis. Previously there were separate Downball and Four square pages. It's not clear to me what the rationale was to redirect Downball to Four square in the first place.Rockycape (talk) 10:33, 22 September 2018 (UTC)

@Rockycape: Thanks for your patience. I've looked into it more and it seems to be a variation/alternative name of Wallball. Could it be merged there instead? Bennv3771 (talk) 05:47, 24 September 2018 (UTC)

Hi Bennv3771, Thanks for you continued help. Since there appears to not be any rationale was to redirect Downball to Four squareit would be clearer to stop the redirect to Four square and approve the draft Downball page. Looking at the Wall ball page there are multiple named variations each with their link to their own page, butts up, aces-kings-queens, Chinese handball, Pêl-Law (Welsh handball) and American handball. It is probably the clearest to approve the Downball page and edit the Wall ball page to add a link to Downball page. Draft downball has the most references btw and Wallball has no references currently.Rockycape (talk) 07:38, 25 September 2018 (UTC)

I'm afraid I looked into finding additional references for the draft, but came up short as well. I'll leave the downball draft to another AfC reviewer, but in the meantime, if "Four square" is not a suitable redirect target for downball, a temporary solution would be to change the target to "Wallball" for now. I've added the {{WikiProject Sports}} template to Draft talk:Downball to hopefully bring the draft to the attention of the active participants in that Wikiproject. Bennv3771 (talk) 07:55, 25 September 2018 (UTC)
@Rockycape: Forgot to ping. By the way, I agree that Wallball and its related articles are in poor shape. Unfortunately, these were created many years ago and there isn't much we can do now other than fixing them ourselves or nominating them for deletion if they meet the deletion policy. Bennv3771 (talk) 08:00, 25 September 2018 (UTC)

Hi @Bennv3771 , Ok - sounds reasonable. Also I'll be interested in the next AfC reviewer's review. Appreciate your contributions to date and thanks. Rockycape (talk) 05:26, 27 September 2018 (UTC)

Removal of Ana Navarro section on her links with the Contras[edit]

Hi there. You say when undoing my edit that the sources don't even mention Navarro. They do. They are an interview with the New Yorker[1] and an interview with the Tampa Bay times.[2] Navarro has said again and again how her father was in the contras and how she has been supportive of them. It's well-documented. They are not poor sources. The section should not have been deleted.

I was not referring to the New Yorker and Tampa Bay sources. I was referring to the Worldcat and "Human Rights in Nicaragua 1986" sources (I explicitly said I was referring to these last two sources). The content about Navarro raising funds for the Contras is already in the article under the "Early life and education" section (cited to your Tampa Bay Times ref) as I have repeatedly told you. This "link" does not require its own WP:UNDUE section. Please read my edit summaries. Bennv3771 (talk) 12:33, 19 September 2018 (UTC)

Draft: Illumine Lingao[edit]

Thanks for your review.

Illumine Lingao is a famous Time Travel novel among Chinese Internet readers. It has Chinese, Classic Chinese and Simple English Wikipedia versions already. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 臨高の粗坯 (talkcontribs) 03:45, 26 September 2018 (UTC)

@臨高の粗坯: Hi, thanks for working on this draft. Each Wikipedia edition has its own notability standards, so something that is notable on one Wikipedia edition isn't necessarily notable on another. That is not to say that this novel doesn't warrant an article on the English Wikipedia, but the draft should show that it meets WP:NBOOK. Bennv3771 (talk) 04:49, 26 September 2018 (UTC)
@Bennv3771:Thanks for reply. I'll improve the draft by adding more things to show the importance. Thank you very much.
@臨高の粗坯: No problem. This novel seems pretty interesting, I'll see if I can improve Draft:Illumine Lingao along with you. Do remember to sign your comments on talk pages by adding four tildes (~~~~) to the end of your posts. Bennv3771 (talk) 08:56, 26 September 2018 (UTC)
@Bennv3771:Many thanks! Let's cooperate to improve it. 臨高の粗坯 (talk) 09:15, 26 September 2018 (UTC)
@Bennv3771:I add almost everything that I can find to the article. In fact, in the field of Chinese novel, there are many works having great influence that are unpublished or only published online. The number of fans of the works like Illumine Lingao is actually not smaller than works like Bu Bu Jing Xin before the latter was made into TV series. I do think Illumine Lingao is notable enough to be recorded in Wikipedia. Thanks.臨高の粗坯 (talk) 01:56, 7 October 2018 (UTC)
@臨高の粗坯: Do note for future reference that a draft can be WP:MOVED to the mainspace, rather than copy-pasting the contents to a new article. This allows attribution to be maintained, which is a copyright requirement. Bennv3771 (talk) 05:42, 7 October 2018 (UTC)
@Bennv3771:Thank you for reminding. I am not very familiar with this...I didn't find the way to WP:MOVE the draft at that moment, I am very sorry for that. I'll learn more about editing and improve my editing quality. Thank you very much!臨高の粗坯 (talk) 05:59, 7 October 2018 (UTC)

Age before Beauty[edit]

Bennv3771 I don't understand why you delete my link. I repeat it's NOT SPAM it's about the series and not to promote anything. I've read the rules and it's exactly what the link brings: informations about the series

• donner accès à des données non libres (donc qui ne peuvent pas être incluses dans Wikipédia), mais qui sont libres d’accès, comme une galerie virtuelle de tableaux (correctement identifiés et décrits) ; • proposer des points de vue alternatifs, ou des compléments d’information qui ne figurent pas encore dans l’encyclopédie ; • apporter des informations mises à jour régulièrement (par exemple, un site d’information spécialisé). De plus, un site externe doit avant tout apporter des informations : • originales par rapport au contenu de Wikipédia (si le site lié apporte les mêmes informations, il est inutile) ; • en étroite relation avec le sujet de l’article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dyan Bretty (talkcontribs) 14:48, 1 October 2018 (UTC)

@Dyan Bretty: It is a foreign-language fansite that you yourself created. Please read WP:LINKSPAM and WP:ELNO, the latter of which states that the following links should be avoided: "Blogs, personal web pages and most fansites (negative ones included), except those written by a recognized authority."
