Koma Kulshan[edit]

Hey Beianhe, sorry if I jumped on that article as moved it into the main space before you had time to finish it. It showed up in the Dams article search shortly after you started it. I assumed it was several hours or so old.--NortyNort (Holla) 10:38, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

It's cool. I was just looking for some more coordinates, pictures and final touch-up. Brianhe (talk) 20:32, 9 July 2015 (UTC)
@NortyNort: I self-nominated the article for DYK (here). Let me know if I should not add you for credit. It might sound funny but last time I offered this, the other editor didn't want it. — Brianhe (talk) 05:47, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
You don't have to give me credit. I just did some basic clean-up. You started it and added the bulk. Thanks though.--NortyNort (Holla§) 20:17, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
Already did [1], just before someone started to review the nom. but I guess you can delete your name if you really don't want the credit. — Brianhe (talk) 16:47, 24 July 2015 (UTC)


Brianhe, I will wait until you return. Thank you. Mary§Mary rose taylor (talk) 12:02, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

Prime Focus Technologies (PFT)[edit]

Hi Beianhe, This is regarding a warning (Sockpuppetry) that I received. I am new to Wikipedia and I really want to become a Wikipedia expert. My account has been flagged and this is very demotivating, can you please guide me as to how and what evidence I can provide. All your help will be greatly appreciated, Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by AayushyaBajpai (talkcontribs) 06:52, 21 July 2015 (UTC)

When you link to a section of the ANI or COIN, the link stops working when it moves into the archives. (They can of course still be found by searching the archives ) What I do is also link to the relevant final edit closing the case in the edit history, or if necessary one of the earlier edits. DGG ( talk ) 18:26, 22 July 2015 (UTC)

@DGG: Thanks, I'll remember that next time. Brianhe (talk) 05:42, 23 July 2015 (UTC)

DYK for Koma Kulshan Project[edit]

Cas Liber (talk · contribs) 01:32, 28 July 2015 (UTC)


You wrote... Hi, I read your note at WikiProject Integrity with interest. I'm a volunteer at the Conflict of Interest Noticeboard, and in that capacity am interested in knowing more about the way paid editors are recruited. Since you mentioned you had been contacted, I was wondering if you'd be willing to share some details, perhaps even the email sent to you? Brianhe (talk) 17:42, 16 July 2015 (UTC)

I no longer have the emails, and they stopped once I made my email address private. The other avenue has been work in articles, but it would take a long time to find the ~solicitations. Looking around a bit reminds me quickly...
Did you know text sometimes completely disappears from Wiki Talk?
Software could easily find some of the paid editors. Find disconnect between fact and wiki content and who's responsible...and kick them out. There should be clear consequences to edits that produce propaganda or convey false information. There's always room for debate, but pattern recognition would easily find clearly harmful editors, and especially editor groups.
In general, the editors are paid by enterprise, with recruitment occurring at the employee level. Recruitment via identifying existing editors in Wiki should be rare, given we are so very few. I was shocked to see only ~5,000 active editors in the recent Trustee vote. In my experience, the majority of those editors are already owned.
The only solution is an independent body of paid senior editors who step into and settle disputes, with the text then locked and needing a petition to update.32cllou (talk) 23:32, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
Took me 5 minutes to find a harmful clear disconnect. See [[2]][[3]][[4]][[5]]
Now, compare what you've learned to a now effectively ancient medical school approach found in Wiki's Depression or Major depressive disorder. Both articles are riddled with paid junk science, entrenched group-think, dated now-refuted information, and medical system profit motivated bias.32cllou (talk) 20:15, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

Website Translation Proxy[edit]

Hi Brian,

This topic has almost no white paper documentation, or books written about it. Almost all resources come from the various vendors.

However, the technology exists, is of public interest, thus it should be discussed. I created this article exactly because there are very few neutral sources.

There is e.g. an article on CDN, Content delivery network - how is this info more verifiable than the info about Website Translation Proxy?

Please advise, I need help with this. I think this should not be deleted but improved. Thanks.

Adam webexpert (talk) 15:16, 4 August 2015 (UTC)

@Adam webexpert: Perhaps you should write about it somewhere other than Wikipedia? We have a policy here called verifiability, which means if it has no neutral information like you say, then it's probably not ready for an article. Wikipedia:Alternative outlets has some suggestions for where you could write about it. Brianhe (talk) 18:49, 4 August 2015 (UTC)

Merger discussion for Startup studio[edit]

An article that you have been involved in editing—Startup studio —has been proposed for merging with another article. If you are interested, please participate in the merger discussion. Thank you. Dodi 8238 (talk) 20:32, 9 August 2015 (UTC)


Hi! I didn't get a chance to thank you on the nomination page before the discussion closed, so I figured I'd go to your talk page. Thanks for reviewing my did you know nomination for Kim Kardashian: Hollywood! I think the hook you suggested is way better too. :) Kaciemonster (talk) 16:44, 12 August 2015 (UTC)

Double checking[edit]

I am looking into the copyright issue you reported in connection with Durga Mandir, Varanasi. I also read the exchange you had with the editor. It looks to me that the sole issue involved the photograph, which has been deleted at Commons. I plan to tag this as clean by an investigator or others in close it is resolved. I'm checking with you just in case I'm missing something.--S Philbrick(Talk) 13:15, 14 August 2015 (UTC)

@Sphilbrick: thanks for checking. Yes, the problem was the text in the photograph, which the other editor insisted on returning to the article before a determination of its copyriht status had been made. Article looks good now. Brianhe (talk) 14:22, 14 August 2015 (UTC)
Thanks.--S Philbrick(Talk) 14:26, 14 August 2015 (UTC)

Hi, I expanded one of the stubs on the rewards board. Id just like to let you know so I can claim my Barnstar, please put it on my user page under awards. Nice meeting you. Tortle (talk) 03:32, 28 August 2015 (UTC)

@Tortle: Saw this, will do my part Friday. Thanks! Were you going to list it at the stub contest as well? Brianhe (talk) 06:14, 28 August 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, I dont think Ill add it as I only expanded a stub or two this month and its more trouble than its worth as theres only a couple days left. Maybe Ill participate next year when I have more experience in expanding articles. Tortle (talk) 06:18, 28 August 2015 (UTC) Thanks, I just got it. See you around.
