Information.svg I patrol Wikipedia using Huggle, and previously using VandalProof before it broke.
If, while doing so, you believe I have made a mistake, please note:
  • Most Huggle work I do involves patrolling new pages. Because of the IRC feed it is possible to review upwards of 30 pages per minute using this tool and tag up to 15 ppm if a page is obviously going to fail a speedy deletion. Huggle allows me to tag and leave messages whilst looking at other pages, just because of my speed does not mean I just tag pages for the sake of it without reading.
  • If I am wrong then all I can say is sorry but I made a mistake like we all do and hopefully the tag, PROD or XFD will fail.
  • I am not on Wikipedia 24/7.
  • I've I have made a mistake I usually realise my error and revert it. If I haven't after a few minutes feel free to leave a message
  • If I don't revert a bad edit after a few minutes I made feel free to point it out.
  • I usually spot when I've made bad edits so at least give me a minute to revert any tagging if it's clearly wrong.
  • If your article is sub stub, but you're going to improve it, please make sure you tag the article so I know you're not just going to leave it like most of the new pages I come accross. If I see it's not intended to be the finished product then I'll back off.

Explain this[edit]

Why do you claim stating a fact about ray comfort is a breach of neutral point of view facts are never in breach of neutrality!--203.192.91.4 (talk) 13:00, 27 July 2008 (UTC)


"The reason is that you added an unsourced statement" Nice statement apart fromt he fact its wrong. So how does being neutral overide the truth?--203.192.91.4 (talk) 15:04, 31 July 2008 (UTC)


You might also want to have a look how wikipedia rules say not to include unsourced material! Oh wait you where claiming I did that before, but you put back referenced material I delted, so you know the rule! So why are you breaking it?--203.192.91.4 (talk) 15:07, 31 July 2008 (UTC)


Ok so your saying you dont know ray comfort is a fundamentalist, then maybe you should not stick you ideas on a topic you do not know about and are unwilling to educate yourself on! You could email him and ask him yourself if thats what it takes! The fact he is a fundamentalist and people do not like it is not in the rules to remove to remove a fact that was referenced!

"I have read the policies you cite and I suggest you read the ones I have mentioned as they clearly encompass this situation"

Thats lawyering and your opinion on the rules, which is offcoruse wrong.

Show me in the rules where it says to exclude a verified fact?--203.192.91.4 (talk) 07:46, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

Speedy[edit]

Creations of satyajit ray, though not a good title, does not fit into the critria established for WP:CSD A1, No context. the context is clear and obvious. Similarly The Billy Goat Caller though an impossibly bad article, also does not meet that definition. Also For a no construction tag, it is usual to allow 7 days for completion of the article, not 2 hours. I see a number of other people have mad similar complaints about your speedy deletions.

Now, I note you were using Huggle. If you are going to use automated tools, you have a special responsibility to make sure to use them correctly. I would strongly advise you (and for that matter everyone) to stop using it for speedy deletion marking. DGG (talk) 09:30, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

Bradford City GA review[edit]

Hi there. Thanks for the review of Bradford City A.F.C. season 2007-08. I was very surprised to see it all passed when I logged on. I'll see if there are any more images possible, though I'm not sure there are. But would you have any other recommendations for pushing towards FAC. Peanut4 (talk) 10:30, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

VP[edit]

Basically VP is dead, and I did communicate with amidaniel about it, but he doesn't appear to have done anything about that. I would strongly recommend WP:HUGGLE as a much better and up to date tool. Prodego talk 14:42, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

I offered to do as you suggest a while ago, but amidaniel indicated that he would like to do that himself, so I am reluctant to. And he is still around, but rarely edits. Prodego talk 00:41, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

Page move at Cricket clothing[edit]

Hi. I noticed this edit and wondered where the discussion regarding it was? --Dweller (talk) 15:24, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

Might have been an idea to drop a line to the creator or the main contributor... oops, that's me twice :-) No worries. The title's not really appropriate, as I don't think it's ever called "cricket clothing" that I know of, but I've kicked off a debate at WT:CRIC to find its best home... it might end up being merged. --Dweller (talk) 18:57, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

Hi BigHairRef, you prodded this article but I note that it has been speedied and re-created numerous times. I listed it at AfD. Regards, Accurizer (talk) 00:08, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Aiav[edit]

Hello BigHairRef! Aiav is not a spelling mistake, it's redirect to Wikipedia:AIAV! The Ogre (talk) 20:58, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Well... I always type aiav (which is rendered as Aiav, as you know), so I thought it could be a good redirect... But if you really think it's not a good idea, please feel free to delete it. Cheers! The Ogre (talk) 21:06, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Nayland Blake[edit]

Please do not speedy incomplete articles the same minute (literally, in this case) they are created, but allow time for people to finish writing the article. But even in the very first version, the article not only asserted notability through exhibitions, but proved it sufficiently to pass WP:AFD: A "solo museum exhibition at the Tang Center and was included in the 1991 Whitney Biennial" together with the multiple good RS references there was almost certainly sufficient to meet the requirements. The additional information provided since shows clear and undoubted notability.

many of your speedies are good, and I want to encourage you to continue patrolling, but you are going too fast, as easily possible with Huggle. Consider the desirability of using WP:PROD if the article might be fixable or is in process of construction and has any potential promise at all . DGG (talk) 22:26, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Sequoyah High School (Claremore, Oklahoma)[edit]

I have removed your improperly-placed {{prod}} tag from the Sequoyah High School (Claremore, Oklahoma) article. It has long been established by precedent that articles about American public high schools are inherently notable. - Realkyhick (Talk to me) 00:32, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

See WP:SCHOOL. - Realkyhick (Talk to me) 00:37, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
All you'll do is end up with an AfD discussion where everyone will tell you that high schools are notable by long-established precedent. Check some AfD archives and you'll see. I know there's a page aside from WP:SCHOOL that sets this out, but I can't find it right now. But trust me on this, because I've been down this road myself and learned the hard way. - Realkyhick (Talk to me) 00:49, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

License tagging for File:Harry and Ruth Final Spooks Episode.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Harry and Ruth Final Spooks Episode.jpg. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information.

To add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia. For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions.
