Just wanted to show my support for your tireless contributions to hndis-cleanup, for both you and your alter-ego. The recent criticism is completely unjustified, I have always found your edits to follow WP:MOSDAB scrupulously. Editorial differences will always occur but this should never have gone beyond the pages concerned or your talk page. Keep up the good work! Tassedethe (talk) 08:30, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

Editor of the Week[edit]

Editor of the week barnstar.svg Editor of the Week
Your ongoing efforts to improve the encyclopedia have not gone unnoticed: You have been selected as Editor of the Week, for excellent work in a largely un-rewarded subject area. Thank you for the great contributions! (courtesy of the Wikipedia Editor Retention Project)

User:Northern Antarctica submitted the following nomination for Editor of the Week:

As a 6-year veteran editor with over a 150,000 edits, Boleyn has quietly been creating tons and tons of disambiguation pages. This is an important area of work, but it doesn't generally get much attention, so Boleyn is probably well overdue for a bit of recognition. After all, users who faithfully work to improve the encyclopedia — yet don't get very much of the limelight — are the people that this award was designed for.

You can copy the following text to your user page to display a user box proclaiming your selection as Editor of the Week:

Your advice please...[edit]

Hello!

You are the disambiguation guru. It used to be piped links were discouraged on disambiguations pages. That made sense to me. Is that still what is recommended? HMS Toronto has several piped links. Should I unpipe them?

Thanks! Geo Swan (talk) 20:13, 4 October 2014 (UTC)

Hi, Geo Swan, I hope you're well. Yes, WP:PIPING is still discouraged, so that readers can see the real link and have less chance of ending up at a disambiguation page again by mistake, and can more easily go directly to the right page. On the page you mentioned, some of the links need a blue link on their line (WP:DDD). Best wishes, Boleyn (talk) 20:20, 4 October 2014 (UTC)

  • Thanks again for the advice. Geo Swan (talk) 18:22, 6 October 2014 (UTC)

Chandrasekhar[edit]

Hello Boleyn, I'm curious to know which templates you'd apply on Chandrasekhar. It's currently tagged as hndis, but I'm not sure that's quite right. I believe that one should only be used for people names with matching first and surnames. On this particular one however, the name is being used both as a first and as a surname. Rgds, --Midas02 (talk) 21:05, 13 November 2014 (UTC)

Hi, Midas02. I've admended it to a surname and given name page, it doesn't seem to be for those sharing the same personal name. Best wishes, Boleyn (talk) 21:08, 13 November 2014 (UTC)

Rock en el Universo[edit]

So I found this article of Rock en el Universo which I turned into a redirect as even the Spanish wiki page was deleted-though I'm starting to wonder if this page should be deleted instead! Wgolf (talk) 21:04, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

I think a WP:BLANKANDREDIRECT was the best call here, and redirects take up less space on Wikipedia than a deleted page plus can be helpful. There certainly are a lot of songs in CAT:NN! Best wishes, Boleyn (talk) 10:43, 14 April 2015 (UTC)

List of Robin Hood (2006 TV series) episodes[edit]

I know that you're also actively working on the backlog in Notability so I thought you might have some advice on how to deal with this-- I recently noticed that a bunch of articles for Robin Hood season 2 episodes were tagged for notability in November 2008-- see Sisterhood (Robin Hood) or The Booby and the Beast for example. After doing some searching, it's pretty clear that these articles don't meet WP:GNG, so as per WP:EPISODE, it would be most appropriate to have the episodes consolidated under one "List of Episodes", with the existing episode articles redirected appropriately. My question is really: should the List of Episodes first be broken into "List of Season (1, 2, 3)" episodes to accommodate the content added from merging? I would really appreciate any input on what to do about this! Thanks so much! Fisheriesmgmt (talk) 18:23, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

Hello. I think it would probably be most clear if they were broken down into series/seasons first, and then listed chronologically. I bet there's an amazing number of episode articles like these. Thanks for your had work, Boleyn (talk) 20:09, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

Saletova Osveta[edit]

Okay so I found this old page of Saletova Osveta which probably could just be redirected though I'm not sure to what (and dang those lyrics are disturbing!) I am thinking of putting a prod up, but am not sure. Wgolf (talk) 00:20, 14 April 2015 (UTC)

I looked it over - disturbing indeed. I redirected it to the album as I couldn't see that it meets WP:NSONG or WP:GNG. Best wishes, Boleyn (talk) 10:39, 14 April 2015 (UTC)

Your opinion please...[edit]

You are my go-to person for advice on disambiguation. Pages have no pipes, correct? Did I fix this correctly?

Thanks! Geo Swan (talk) 14:10, 10 May 2015 (UTC)

Hi Geo Swan, nice to hear from you. WP:DABPIPE gives the full guidelines, but in most cases, piping makes it harder for people to be clear where they are going to, and to know the page title for the future. Boleyn (talk) 20:10, 10 May 2015 (UTC)

Geo Swan, just re-read this and realised I'd left out the key point - yes, the way you altered it was correct Boleyn (talk) 07:36, 12 May 2015 (UTC)

Redirect vs. disambig[edit]

With respect WP:2DABS covers this perfectly "If there are only two topics to which a given title might refer, but per the criteria at Is there a primary topic? there is no primary topic, then the base name should lead the reader to the disambiguation page for the term"; there is no primary topic. Both men are equally famous, for different reasons. One, one of the most decorated Marines in history, the other the winner of a Pulitzer Prize. There's no way to decide which one should be primary. --Hammersoft (talk) 16:03, 16 June 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for taking the time to explain your reasons, Hammersoft. Would you say that they are both eually known as 'Lewis', as only one of them seems to be primarily known as Lewis? Best wishes, Boleyn (talk) 17:22, 16 June 2015 (UTC)

  • I think both of them are colloquially known by Lewis. 'Chesty' of course is known for Sr., but referred to as Lewis in some places. The reason I came across this was because of a news article regarding the delivery of a new ship that was named for Sr., not Jr., but the name makes no reference to "Chesty". It took some time to untangle for whom the ship was named, and Wikipedia made that search more difficult rather than less so, which is why I created the disambig page. --Hammersoft (talk) 17:38, 16 June 2015 (UTC)

Oak Grove[edit]

Since you are always there to correct my disambiguating mistakes, I've come to think of you as an expert in this area. Could you take a look at Oak Grove (and the talk page) and see what would be the correct course of action would be? I added back a few red links that are mentioned elsewhere and another editor is threatening to remove them again. Thanks, Tavix| Talk  15:36, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, I've edited the dab, commented on its talk page and added it to my watchlist. Best wishes, Boleyn (talk) 15:53, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

Invitation[edit]

Deletion discussion for Ulf Strohmayer[edit]

Hello Boleyn, as you might have noticed, I had mentioned a book a the deletion discussion for Ulf Strohmayer which contains info about him, and which I initially believed to be a possible external source. However, it seems more and more probable that this book is actually one of several full-blown WP copies "written" by the same author. So thanks for starting the whole discussion which lead me there. Regards, Axolotl Nr.733 (talk) 17:52, 10 July 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for your message, Axolotl Nr.733. Working out if someone is notable is often a minefield; I'm gld that one is finally sorted. Best wishes, Boleyn (talk) 18:22, 10 July 2015 (UTC)

The Master Key System[edit]

Hi, I recently noticed that you redirected this page to the author's own page, and so have tried to find proof of the book's notability. I would be grateful if you could have a look at the following references and let me know if they are valid. I am aiming to show that it is notable according to criteria 3: The book has been considered by reliable sources to have made a significant contribution to a notable or significant motion picture.

The notable motion picture is The Secret (2006 film). These are the references.[1][2] Jane Taaaa (talk) 14:18, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

Hi, Jane. I'm not sure if either of these are reliable, probably the second one is - the first one seems promotional. I think it's certainly enough for you to revert my edit and start working on it. Thanks for taking the time to try to improve this. Best wishes, Boleyn (talk) 16:04, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

Hi, I´ve just reverted your re-direct and added some new references. When you have a moment please have a look at the first 5 references that I placed in the section Influence. Do you think they are good enough to make the book notable, or do I need to look for more references? Jane Taaaa (talk) 11:58, 31 July 2015 (UTC)

Excellent work, Jane Taaaa, I've removed the tags. Best wishes, Boleyn (talk) 19:28, 6 August 2015 (UTC)

Abu Dhabi Warriors Fighting Championship[edit]

When this one was created I as thinking about AfD but at the time there were a whole series that needed my attention (I thought) and let it slip by. I don't think there is enough to claim notability - there are several MMA organizations that were deleted by AfD that are comparable - see Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/EFC Africa (2nd nomination). By the by - please check Kunlun Fight Company. Some really persistent and imaginative recreations.Peter Rehse (talk) 16:45, 24 July 2015 (UTC)


Hello, I am the author of the page and I also work for the organization. What is the problem and how can I fix it? True, organization is fresh (well it goes back in 2012 but it has been restarted in 2015), but there are two events scheduled for this year with plans for 2016 already in motion. Please advise me how to repair what is needed because I've put a lot of work into creation of the Wikipedia page.SebastjanH (talk) 20:02, 6 August 2015 (UTC)

Hi, SebastjanH. Thanks for your message and for taking the time to create an article. I think at the moment this is WP:TOOSOON. You may get some good ideas from reading that plus WP:ORG and WP:GNG. Good luck in finding sources to verify its notability. Boleyn (talk) 20:27, 6 August 2015 (UTC)

Hi, I have to say that I don't agree with you. We have history and most importantly, AD Warriors have a future and that is why I/we set up the page. In the MMA world Sherdog mentions are top priority and we have that. I thought that it would be enough for Wikipedia to accept the page. I will add other mentions, no problem. Just give me a week to sort everything out as I am going away on holidays. I will do my best to comply with the guidelines. I am new here and had problems responding to the initial message as I didn't know how to :) SebastjanH (talk) 06:11, 7 August 2015 (UTC)

AD Warriors may well have a future, but see WP:CRYSTALBALL - encyclopaedias comment on already-notable topics, we don't predict the future. Thanks for taking the time to look at the links I gave you, I hope they help. It is not up to me whether this page is judged notble, that will be up to the AfD contributors as a whole, and AfDs are expected to stay open for one week (if there's trouble getting a consensus, it may be two weeks. A last-chance option (if found non-notable) is to WP:USERFY it and then re-submit it when they are more notable, preferably through WP:AFC (articles for creation) because they can give you invaluable advice about how to write the article.

Dab issue[edit]

Hello, would you mind trying to have a go at fixing the dab page being discussed here? --Midas02 (talk) 16:21, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

Only saying something after who knows how many similar reversions[edit]

Let me figure this out. You're invoking MOS:DABRL. I go to that page and find the following text: "or are likely to be removed as insufficiently notable topics.". Hmmm, let's look at the biography of Melville Cox Brown, shall we? Member of the Idaho territorial legislature, 1864. Assessor of internal revenue for Idaho Territory, 1867. First mayor of Laramie, Wyoming. President of the Wyoming constitutional convention, 1890. Judge of the United States territorial court from 1900 to 1904. Senior partner in a Seattle law firm not long after that. All of that screams notability to me. So what's your point, anyway? Seems to me that you're really saying WP:WTAF without actually saying WTAF, a "clearly effective approach" (suppressing uproarious laughter). This is really more snarky behavior, continuing the rampant denial of the cold hard fact that Wikipedia still has plenty of notable topics left to acknowledge, not to mention denial of the fact that dead people aren't in a position to hire a social media consultant to insert their name everywhere on the Internet. Biting experienced users for the "crime" of not having unlimited amounts of time available to do all the work for you isn't going to get that work done, you know. RadioKAOS / Talk to me, Billy / Transmissions 19:29, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

If you want to spend your time leaving people horrible messages, go ahead. But don't expect me to spend much time responding. No one has bitten you or accused you of a crime - that's ridiculous hyperbole. Get over yourself. Boleyn (talk) 19:41, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

You are the author of the red links disambiguation. I believe that the article should be removed.Xx236 (talk) 06:37, 14 September 2015 (UTC)

@Xx236:: Why? It's a useful dab page to distinguish 3 people all of whom are mentioned in WP articles; in particular disentangling identically-named MPs is a worthwhile task and shouldn't be wasted just because neither of them has an article at present. PamD 12:19, 14 September 2015 (UTC)
MOS:DABRL so you are right.Xx236 (talk) 13:31, 14 September 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, PamD. Xx236, a lot of people think these dabs aren't alllowed, but reaching this dab, which contains blue links mentioning 3 different Roger Drurys, is much more useful than finding a blank (MOS:DABMENTION is worth reading as wll as MOS:DABRL). Best wishes, Boleyn (talk) 20:03, 14 September 2015 (UTC)

Joe Ferguson[edit]

I've changed the links in the Central Missouri articles, which is where he is mainly listed. He wasn't just a basketball coach, but a football coach and athletic director as well. This is why I changed it to "coach" instead of "basketball" or "(American football)". After all, I am the one who added him to the page, so that would probably mean I've changed the links elsewhere... like I said above. Unless you have a better name for him, I think "coach" fits best. Corkythehornetfan 20:21, 14 September 2015 (UTC)

Coach looks good, and as long as the other incoming links have been changed too, no info will be lost. Best wishes, Boleyn (talk) 14:45, 15 September 2015 (UTC)

No, being the one who added him does not mean that you are likely to have changed all the links - most people don't or don't know to. I know nothing about you, so could only comment as I found it. When I clicked on the link on the dab, [Joe Ferguson (coach)] had no incoming links. I'm glad you've since rectified that. Thanks for your hard work, Boleyn (talk) 14:54, 15 September 2015 (UTC)

John Roach (businessman), executive at Tandy Corporation[edit]

"Red links should not be the only link in a given entry; link also to an existing article, so that a reader (as opposed to a contributing editor) will have somewhere to navigate to for additional information. The linked article should contain some meaningful information about the term." He is not mentioned in the article. Murry1975 (talk) 13:33, 15 September 2015 (UTC)

His info's been taken out of the article which was linked, well spotted. That doesn't mean he is removed however - by clicking on the redlink there were several replacement options, one of which I've now added. Best wishes, Boleyn (talk) 14:51, 15 September 2015 (UTC)

revert of changes to John Jaffray (disambiguation)[edit]

Hi Boleyn,

Last week you reverted my changes to the John Jaffray disambiguation page:

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=John_Jaffray_(disambiguation)&oldid=688256978&diff=prev

I'm not saying you were wrong to do so, but could you explain what I did wrong so I don't do it again? The John Jaffray page talks about a gentleman born in Stirling who spent most of his working life in Birmingham, so I changed Scottish to British, to avoid putting off people looking for details about a founder or partner of an English newspaper, (or the holder of an English title). It also does not mention politics, only the ceremonial office of "Sheriff", so I replaced "Politician" with "Journalist & Newspaper proprietor".

Thanks --verbatim (talk) 15:15, 2 November 2015 (UTC)

Hi, Talkie tim. If you have a look at my edit summary, it tells you why I reverted it and links to the guidelines. I probably should have rewritten rather than reverted though. Boleyn (talk) 16:48, 2 November 2015 (UTC)

Ahh, now I understand. Thanks for taking the time to point out where I went wrong. --verbatim (talk)

Possible DAB for whenever[edit]

Jack Crabtree, I found some others but can't remember who. Wgolf (talk) 21:09, 6 November 2015 (UTC)

Please review Wikipedia:Proposed deletion as an article can only be prodded once. Your first PROD was declined and it should now go to AfD. Thanks. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 10:39, 7 November 2015 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Ann Butler[edit]

Hello Boleyn,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Ann Butler 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. TheLongTone (talk) 16:42, 10 November 2015 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Andrew Newman[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Andrew Newman requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Speculum principis (Skelton book)[edit]

Hallo, Are you sure about the translated title - not "Mirror to/for/of the/a prince"? See Mirrors for princes. PamD 14:17, 1 December 2015 (UTC)

It's the name given in the source. Boleyn (talk) 20:08, 4 December 2015 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Humphrey Smith (disambiguation)[edit]

A tag has been placed on Humphrey Smith (disambiguation) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G6 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an orphaned disambiguation page which either

  • disambiguates two or fewer extant Wikipedia pages and whose title ends in "(disambiguation)" (i.e., there is a primary topic); or
  • disambiguates no (zero) extant Wikipedia pages, regardless of its title.

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such pages may be deleted at any time. Please see the disambiguation page guidelines for more information.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay.

Proposed deletion of Josiah Hawley[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Josiah Hawley has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, this biography of a living person will be deleted unless it has at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within seven days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. Liz Read! Talk! 16:00, 11 December 2015 (UTC)

Hi Liz, I wasn't the creator of that article, but I created the page. I've restored it to its original form. Best wishes, Boleyn (talk) 18:33, 11 December 2015 (UTC)

Hi, Boleyn. I use Twinkle when tagging articles for CSD or PRODS and, through its mysterious processes, it decides who to notify. I'm sorry that it mistakenly notified you. Incidentally, I think this is an article that can be improved, it just needs at least one reference. Liz Read! Talk! 18:39, 11 December 2015 (UTC)

A tool for your consideration[edit]

I have something you may be interested in using: Dabfix. — Dispenser 14:49, 12 December 2015 (UTC)

Hi, Dispenser, I appreciate you taking the time to develop the tol and to share it with me. I just have a couple of questions: Why does it change 'may refer to' to 'is the name of'? I don't care which one is used (nor do the guidelines) but as the vast majority are may refer to, it seems a shame. I was also wondering about the suggestion when I typed in [[2] Aaron Davies, where it seems to suggest deleting the two MOSDABRL entries. It also suggests changing Aaron Davis (disambiguation) to Aaron Davis in see also, and most editors wouldn't know this goes against WP:INTDABLINK. Thanks again, Boleyn (talk) 19:27, 12 December 2015 (UTC)

We have different footer templates so why not complement it with a different intro? It currently only does it for people, places, and acronyms. The redlink thing was actually a bug from this morning, it was only happens if: No article links to it and its the only text on the line (I flipped the logic). The suggestion is from the redirect bypasser which is meant for accent mark and subject changes. Its imperfect, hopefully somebody will create all the section redirects. The script will actually add (disambiguation) if the redirect exists. — Dispenser 21:28, 12 December 2015 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Martin French[edit]

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. This is a notice to inform you that a tag has been placed on Martin French requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an article with no content whatsoever, or whose contents consist only of external links, a "See also" section, book references, category tags, template tags, interwiki links, images, a rephrasing of the title, a question that should have been asked at the help or reference desks, or an attempt to contact the subject of the article. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Thanks for letting me know, 211.30.17.74. In this case, it had already been de-prodded, because both entries meet MOS:DABRL/MOS:DABMENTION, and both entries had a blue link on their line which took the reader to information on that Martin French. Best wishes, Boleyn (talk) 07:58, 20 December 2015 (UTC)

Richard Bunny II[edit]

As I am clearly not a mind reader and you blanked the page it was the appropriate thing to tag it, if you are developing articles then perhaps suggest you use your own workspace or use a Template:Inuse tag until you have finished, thanks. MilborneOne (talk) 17:39, 30 December 2015 (UTC)

Hmm, not really sure why you felt the nee to send me a stroppy message, but perhaps my edit summary sounded annoyed rather than explaining. I would generally be careful of tagging pages for deletion within 9 mins of creation, whatever they're like, but that's me. Happy New Year, Boleyn (talk) 17:48, 30 December 2015 (UTC)

I left the message because I feared it may happen again, it may have only been after a few minutes you decided you didnt want to proceed and blanked the page somebody watching the changed pages has no idea of the reason. That said it was all in good faith and I am sorry to interrupt your good work on these biographical articles, best wishes MilborneOne (talk) 17:59, 30 December 2015 (UTC)

Phil/Philip Moore reverts[edit]

You reversion of my edits to Phil Moore and Philip Moore appears to be a result of a fundamental misunderstanding of the guideline you cited in the edit summaries. There are instances where linking to a disambiguation page is deliberate and desirable, instead of linking to a redirect. Why would you want to increase CPU overhead, reducing server efficiency, as well as break tooltip previews? — QuicksilverT @ 02:10, 7 January 2016 (UTC)

(talk page watcher)@Hydrargyrum: Sorry, but I think you're misunderstanding the guideline yourself. The idea is that a deliberate link to a dab page can be recognised by going through the redirect, as Boleyn did; any link directly to Phil Moore is then identifiable as an accidental link to a dab page where a specific person was intended, needing to be cleaned up. I hope this clarifies WP:INTDABLINK for you. PamD 13:49, 7 January 2016 (UTC)

Sor (film)[edit]

Hi Boleyn. Just wanted to let you know that the Prod tag you added to Sor (film) was removed by an IP editor. I think it might have been a sock of a blocked editor, but unfortunately even bad faith removals do not allow the tag to be re-added. You can, however, choose to take it to WP:AfD and nobody can remove AfD templates until the relevant discussion has run its course. -- Marchjuly (talk) 12:38, 7 January 2016 (UTC)

User:Boleyn/List of museum articles tagged for notability[edit]

Do you want notes on that page, the talk page, or somewhere else? For example I looked up Byzantine Museum of Komotini, and couldn't find anything (not even in the Lonely Planet travel guide). --kelapstick(bainuu) 22:19, 13 January 2016 (UTC)

You're doing a great job. Your notes on the list were very informative. I think if you've found nothing, AfD would probably be the next step. Best wishes, Boleyn (talk) 21:37, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

Kelly Hall (disambiguation)[edit]

Hey there,

The SD tag you placed on Kelly Hall (disambiguation) states that you require deletion to make way for a move. However, the page you want to take its place does not exist. Mind clarifying? Best, m.o.p 01:40, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

Kelly Hall seems to be salted, so I can't place anything there. I want Kelly Hall (disambiguation) moved to Kelly Hall. Thanks for your help, Boleyn (talk) 09:41, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Lin Sheng[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Lin Sheng has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Non-notable athlete

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. Liz Read!

Success Park 'n Ride[edit]

Hey, I don't normally leave messages when I remove PRODs, but I thought I'd explain that one. When I saw it'd been added, I was thinking "why the bejesus do we have an article on an actual just bus stop? why did anyone write that article?". I then realised it was one of the southern bus stations that got rendered irrelevant by the Mandurah railway line, but were just as important as any other central suburban terminus bus station prior to that, and trying to take a photo of the carpark that's left of it just...makes the writer look a bit silly. I feel like this probably should be notable, but I can absolutely see why anyone reading it would nominate it for deletion in its present form - I am just a big fan of comprehensively covering past public transport centres so I'd like to give someone the opportunity to write an article that doesn't suck. The Drover's Wife (talk) 10:08, 3 February 2016 (UTC)
