How do i contact you about a page you helped remove?[edit]

Hey i set up a article for Freshly Squeezed Music, but along with another you deleted it. I was just wondering how i could contact you for further information on the reasons why? And how to correct the article? - Electroswing770 13:42 04/01/2016

Hey, Thanks so much for the helpful tips! I've compiled a list of further sources that i have found, and i believe they correspond to the notability guidelines. If you have the time, could you glance at them to confirm notability? It would really help.

You've been whacked with a wet trout.

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

AlexPMA (talk) 22:08, 21 August 2014 (UTC) Regarding Capital Insurance Group Entry: Hi Cerebellum. I would be interested to learn more about why this article was denied as it was reviewed by two other edits with extremely minor edits and every fact was cited with either an internal wiki link or an external third party link. The page is salient because of two verifiable unique factors in the insurance industry (the first to offer a smoke-free premium credit and one of the very limited number of regional insurance companies with a mobile application.) Furthermore, the company is already cited in an existing wikipedia url of Kelly-Moore Paints (a stub article). As the url exists already, a fully-sited and strictly factual page would be a legitimate extension, would it not? Happy to abide by any/all guidelines but as far as I can tell by the wiki "best practices", this should be a solid fit. Please advise as to how to create a constructive article on this topic. Thank you AlexPMA (talk) 21:33, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for reviewing my contribution on Woodford Investment Management. I have now added more references. I do have press articles from international media titles including Handelsblatt in Germany and Xinhua News in China. Both being core media sources in Asia and Europe. These are not web references but I have scanned copies. Is there a way to reference these directly?

Fifi Ejindu[edit]

I notice that you moved the above article into mainspace. I would just like to ask what criteria you used to assess the fitness of the article in mainspace. I have just come across the article, and it seems that at least one other editor considers it to be highly promotional in nature, and has tagged the article accordingly. I'm just a little disappointed that an article full of unencyclopaedic trash, like the high level of detail given to her "reknowned" 50th birthday party, has been allowed into mainspace under the auspices of this AfD program. Regards, -- Ohc ¡digame! 03:52, 20 September 2014 (UTC)

Is it an explanation of the context in which grips are used or an explanation of the context in which the terms Sword-grip and Scabbard-grip are used that is missing ?

PLEASE help me get this article accepted on your site[edit]

I have already tried to post this question twice on TEAHOUSE, complete with the four tildes, and it disappeared, so I sent it to the information team and was told to talk to you directly. However, since you do not have an e-mail or private message section, I am forced to do it this way to try AGAIN. I apologize up front for the caps I'm about to use, and for anything I'm apparently not supposed to put here, but with your response to my article in your review, I'm not even aware of what that would be, and I have no other choice but to do things this way. This is the most FRUSTRATING THING I have EVER been through.

I have tried REPEATEDLY to submit an article on my boss, Ray Carr, at his request, BTW, and have repeatedly corrected items listed in my reviews, yet, NO MATTER WHAT I DO, this article keeps being rejected. And now, out of nowhere, this LATEST rejection includes this block: This submission has been blanked because its content violates Wikipedia's policies. This page has been blanked for privacy, security, or copyright reasons. Please do not restore the content that was removed.

WTF?????!!! NOWHERE in any review did ANY Editor tell me that my article was violating any policies!!! Why all of a sudden does this show up? I made very few changes since my last review, save ones requested by the editors, and nothing has ever been on that page that would cause a reaction like that - or, at least I've never been given that response before.

Here is the URL:

And here is the latest submitted text, which I WISELY saved onto my computer after the LAST time it was restored by Wikipedia, from its last rejection:

Raymond "Ray"/"DJRay" Kevin Carr, Sr. (born September 17, 1963) is a disc jockey, emcee, sports announcer and voiceover artist. [1] He has been a DJ since 1980, and is best known as the host of The Ray Carr Show [2], a weekly radio show on WCSB in Cleveland, OH.

Ray is also an animal rights advocate and a supporter of anti-drinking and anti-drug bills.

He also collects memorabilia on sports and Indians history, particularly Babe Ruth.[9] Ray has two children, Raymond, Jr., a rap singer, known as LittleItaly, [10] [6] born on December 13, 1984, who is single; and Roy, born on January 29, 1986, who married Courtney Blevens earlier this year.

There are many pages on this site that are less notable than Ray is, some with no references at all, yet they've been accepted and remain on this site. Yes, I've been told that doesn't mean that more pages like them should be added, but this article DOES contain total truth, references, articles and online references. WHAT MORE DO YOU NEED TO PUT IT ONLINE???

Will you PLEASE help me write this correctly to FINALLY get it on this site?

Blacklane Rejection 15 August 2014[edit]

Hi Cerebellum, Thank you for reviewing my article on the company Blacklane on 15 August. You said that it didn't sound objective enough, so I have made a whole bunch of changes now and have resubmitted it. I was hoping you might take a look at it, as you are one of the people who has already read through it and therefore know a bit about it already. Also, if you still don't consider it ready for exposure, could you possibly give me some suggestions as to how I can change it? I decided to take it on as a response to a request in the "Requested articles" section and am determined not to give up! It'd be great if you could help me out! Thank you! All the best, -- Reconnamon (talk) 06:48, 12 November 2014 (UTC)

Dear Cerebellum, Thank you so much for reading through the Blacklane article again and accepting! I really appreciate you taking the time out for it! All the best, Reconnamon (talk) 08:09, 17 November 2014 (UTC)

Dear Cerebellum, Some months ago you declined my article 'Draft:Ulf Langheinrich". I am not sure to understand how to improve it. Do you mean the sources of the references are not detailed enough or are they not significant? As a contemporary artist in the field of media art, it is not easy to add neutral citations about his work, as they come from press releases or websites of the visited venues. Thanks in advance, Rupert4471 (talk) 17:33, 13 November 2014 (UTC)rupert4471Rupert4471 (talk) 17:33, 13 November 2014 (UTC)

Copyright checks when performing AfC reviews[edit]

Hello Cerebellum. This message is part of a mass mailing to people who appear active in reviewing articles for creation submissions. First of all, thank you for taking part in this important work! I'm sorry this message is a form letter – it really was the only way I could think of to covey the issue economically. Of course, this also means that I have not looked to see whether the matter is applicable to you in particular.

The issue is in rather large numbers of copyright violations ("copyvios") making their way through AfC reviews without being detected (even when easy to check, and even when hallmarks of copyvios in the text that should have invited a check, were glaring). A second issue is the correct method of dealing with them when discovered.

If you don't do so already, I'd like to ask for your to help with this problem by taking on the practice of performing a copyvio check as the first step in any AfC review. The most basic method is to simply copy a unique but small portion of text from the draft body and run it through a search engine in quotation marks. Trying this from two different paragraphs is recommended. (If you have any question about whether the text was copied from the draft, rather than the other way around (a "backwards copyvio"), the Wayback Machine is very useful for sussing that out.)

If you do find a copyright violation, please do not decline the draft on that basis. Copyright violations need to be dealt with immediately as they may harm those whose content is being used and expose Wikipedia to potential legal liability. If the draft is substantially a copyvio, and there's no non-infringing version to revert to, please mark the page for speedy deletion right away using {{db-g12|url=URL of source}}. If there is an assertion of permission, please replace the draft article's content with {{subst:copyvio|url=URL of source}}.

Some of the more obvious indicia of a copyvio are use of the first person ("we/our/us..."), phrases like "this site", or apparent artifacts of content written for somewhere else ("top", "go to top", "next page", "click here", use of smartquotes, etc.); inappropriate tone of voice, such as an overly informal tone or a very slanted marketing voice with weasel words; including intellectual property symbols (™,®); and blocks of text being added all at once in a finished form with no misspellings or other errors.

I hope this message finds you well and thanks again you for your efforts in this area. Best regards--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 02:20, 18 November 2014 (UTC).

Request on 15:22:39, 18 November 2014 for assistance on AfC submission by Evelyn4414[edit]

Thank you for the feedback. I am requesting assistance in how to improve the article, "Gainor Roberts."

Can you give me specific examples of where it needs more secondary references or smacks of undocumented assertions? I see what is wrong (secondary sources are not independent and authoritative enough), but need help in focusing. Is the "life" section ok as is? Are the regional and local newspaper articles too ancedotal? Would direct quotes from authors or from the artist (as quoted by authors) improve the article?

I will continue to work on 'Gainor Roberts' to understand the process and hope to later contribute more to Wikipedia. Evelyn4414 (talk) 15:22, 18 November 2014 (UTC) evelyn4414

Kezia Noble[edit]

Hello, I really appreciate you reviewing my article - I have removed even more references and left the ones who others have written about her. The reason why I re-submitted it prevously was because I did remove sources but nobody replied to me when I asked if I should remove anymore sources. I would really appreciate it if you could take a quick look at the references, (only a few left) and let me know if I should remove any more. Thank you Wiki.017 (talk) 10:42, 28 November 2014 (UTC)

@Wiki.017: I removed the entire "Media Appearances" section; those interviews, for the most part, don't help us to write a good article about Noble. We need to know what she has done (the Romance Files interview is good for that), not her opinions on topics like "What is the best pickup line you have ever heard." I also added a "citation needed" tag to the lead where you saw that her book was a best-seller. Is there a source confirming that it was a best-seller? --Cerebellum (talk) 12:21, 28 November 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for your help!! I really appreciate it. I have removed the "best-selling" book fact because there aren't any current references on the web to support this fact. Other than this, if I submit the article again would you kindly be able to take a look at it? Thanks Wiki.017 (talk) 16:21, 1 December 2014 (UTC)

@Wiki.017: Definitely resubmit, but you'll have to wait for someone else to review it - since I've already reviewed it twice, it would be good to get another set of eyes on it. --Cerebellum (talk) 09:04, 3 December 2014 (UTC)

Ok amazing! Thanks for your help and have a great day Wiki.017 (talk) 11:26, 3 December 2014 (UTC)

Please take a look at the comment the most recent reviewer has left me - how is this fair? I think it's extremely unfair. I have spent hundreds of hours on this article, done everything I could and trusted the comments the reviewers have left me, I removed the references and you removed an entire chunk of the article so that it would help it get accepted and now it gets rejected because of exactly that? That's extremely unfair. I just want the article approved. I'm giving up hope - any way you can approve it, since you thought the lesser references the better?

21:57:36, 5 December 2014 review of submission by Norozco1[edit]

Hey, i see that you have declined this article because you said, and i quote: "It is unlikely that it will be accepted unless new sources have been published since June covering this person", and that's what i'm trying to do because every since this article got deleted back in june, eveyone that read this article are surprised at this decision, and they don't like it one bit, so its my job to bring the article back to wikipedia, an i'm still trying my very best to do so, because if i do that, then maybe someone out there, he or she just might accept my request, and then re-add the article right back on the wikipedia web, and this time, it'll be better then ever, and after that, everything will be back to the way it was before deletion ever happen in the first place, and i can tell from the looks of it that the editors would want to edit this article, and they would be completely eagered to add new datas, new sources, and new references to the article, to make sure that this article stays on for good, and to make sure that this article should never end up being deleted from this site ever again, which is why i need everyones help and support for this, especially your help and support to make it happen, and before you know it, it'll soon be the article that won't get deleted, that is my hope to say the least, but wouldn't you agree too, Cerebellum? :-) Norozco1 (talk) 21:57, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

First, let's talk aboout the sources you've added that are different from the deleted version. We have the AnimeCons biography, which is a good source since it provides actual information about here life; and then the New York Times, Behind the Voice Actors, and Crystal Acids, which are all just lists of works; there is no information on Siddal's life. The problem listed at the deletion discussion was that there was "No in-depth WP:SECONDARY coverage of Siddall's life or career, only listing entries and mentions-in-passing." Now, the Anime Cons page gives us in-depth coverage of her life and career, but it is only one page; the others are list entries. Unfortunately, we cannot write an article based on only one source. So, while I know it's not what you want to hear, there's nothing we can do right now with this article. We just have to wait until another reliable source is published with information on her career. --Cerebellum (talk) 05:04, 7 December 2014 (UTC)
I see, so what do you think i should do then, i mean if that's all they need, then how am i suppose to do this, trying to find her life and career info with more then just one page, is that even possible to find that kind of source, i ask you. :'-( Norozco1 (talk) 06:01, 7 December 2014 (UTC)
No, I don't think it's possible. Right now, there's no way for her to have an article on Wikipedia. Fortunately, there are other sites with information about her, and if you're interested you can help add information to them: Voice Acting Wiki, Dragonball Wiki, and others. --Cerebellum (talk) 08:50, 7 December 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, I just hope that these information's are good enough for this, ya know! :( Norozco1 (talk) 16:57, 7 December 2014 (UTC)

Data Lost in Section "Golf Courses Designed by Herbert Strong"[edit]

Hi Cerebellum:

Can you please put back the 20 or more golf courses that disappeared from this section?! Where did they go?--EditorExtraordinaire (talk) 17:07, 1 February 2015 (UTC)

@Michael W. Parker: Whoops, let me try to get those back. Also, I removed some info on the 1913 U.S. Open (golf) since it seems to duplicate content from the main article. Is that ok? --Cerebellum (talk) 17:11, 1 February 2015 (UTC)

The duplicate stuff is okay to remove if you think it is unnecessary. I would like to keep the one Wiki table that showed his 9th place finish in the 1913 U.S. Open. Can you put that back in please? I am also wondering when this article might be approved to be published in the article space. It isn't a perfect article (being my first attempt) but it is better than a lot of others I've seen!

Help for Reviewing an article[edit]

Dear Cerebellum,

I'm very sorry. I don't know if i'm writing you on the proper place. I would like to create an article in English about Marc Dozier, a movie maker related to Mundiya Kepanga. I already wrote the article that was probably not good enough and it has since been deleted. Could you possibly help me to review it ?

Thanks in advance,

Best Regards, (talk) 22:14, 12 February 2015 (UTC)

Philippe Gigliotti

@ Hello! I would love to help you. Unfortunately I cannot find the deleted article you are referring to. Did you write it using a different account? I notice there is an article on Marc Dozier on the French wikipedia, so if you speak French I would recommend translating that and then posting it to Wikipedia:Articles for creation. I would be happy to review it for you. --Cerebellum (talk) 22:40, 12 February 2015 (UTC)

I acknowledge your action of deleting the page Donati Salla which I had created it in past two days ago however in your message that you sent it to me you have said that, you are not thinking if the page I created in belonging to Wikipedia then would you kindly direct me as to where should I allocate the page??? Second If you had seen some weaknesses in it please why can't you assist me in improving the page??? third can you assist me get the copy of the deleted page??? Infact I have been very embarrassed with your actions!!!

@Abdulrahman1985: Hello Abdulrahman, thank you for your comment. It is easy for articles to get deleted in the main encyclopedia, so the best thing to do is to work on them as drafts. I have made a copy of the deleted page and placed it at Draft:Donati Salla. You can continue to work on it there, then submit it for review when you are ready. The main thing you need to improve is the sourcing. Sites like youtube and wordpress, forums like jamiiforums, and sites affiliated with TSSF, are not reliable sources. Remove them, add more sources explaining why Donati Salla is significant, and then submit the article for review. --Cerebellum (talk) 18:29, 11 November 2015 (UTC)

Peak Oil good article nomination review[edit]

Thanks for doing the review of this article. This article was neglected for a long time, and I have been trying to update the page for months now. However, this is a community effort, and there are years of previous work here from multiple individuals. In addition, as you can imagine, the page has been quite politicized.

I have done my best to improve the page. In the last few months most of the edits have been done by myself. Most of the figures have been updated for the recent data and much outdated information has been removed. I admit, there are some sections which need work (as would be the case for any article). However, there is only so much time in the day. Overall, I think the page is vastly improved from where it was previously.

Discussions related to this subject have been going on for decades. You should appreciate that the article cannot be completely re-written based on relatively recent developments such as hydraulic fracturing and the 2014-15 price drop. Relevant to this, I refer you to my response to Insertcleverphrasehere's comments in the Talk section in which I refer to mention of the price drop and hydraulic fracturing in the article.

I will attempt to address your comments as soon as I can. I would ask you to review this page constructively in the context of it's long controversial history and multiple contributors. If you could give me additional time if that is required, I would appreciate that.

One final point, please refrain from the use of "you say..." in you future coments. This is incorrect - I probably didn't write the section being referred to. Many thanks.Blandx (talk) 01:56, 15 November 2015 (UTC)

Again, thank you for taking the time to review the Peak Oil article. I very much appreciate your input, and for the final outcome. You and Insertcleverphrasehere certainly made some insightful comments. I will attempt to continually update the page as developments occur. All the best with your work.Blandx (talk) 22:20, 21 November 2015 (UTC)

@Abdulrahman1985: Sorry for the late response, I see you've already moved the article back into article space. I agree that the article is probably notable so I don't have a problem with that. The only reason it's hard to establish the notability is that most of the sources you cite are not available online. If you know of an online version or you are able to scan the articles that would help, but you've put a lot of work into the article and it looks good. Again, sorry for the delayed response. --Cerebellum (talk) 20:07, 28 November 2015 (UTC)

Editor of the Week : nominations needed![edit]

The Editor of the Week initiative has been recognizing editors since 2013 for their hard work and dedication. Editing Wikipedia can be disheartening and tedious at times; the weekly Editor of the Week award lets its recipients know that their positive behaviour and collaborative spirit is appreciated. The response from the honorees has been enthusiastic and thankful.

The list of nominees is running short, and so new nominations are needed for consideration. Have you come across someone in your editing circle who deserves a pat on the back for improving article prose regularly, making it easier to understand? Or perhaps someone has stepped in to mediate a contentious dispute, and did an excellent job. Do you know someone who hasn't received many accolades and is deserving of greater renown? Is there an editor who does lots of little tasks well, such as cleaning up citations?

Please help us thank editors who display sustained patterns of excellence, working tirelessly in the background out of the spotlight, by submitting your nomination for Editor of the Week today!

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Cerebellum. This message is intended to notify administrators of important changes to the protection policy.

Extended confirmed protection (also known as "30/500 protection") is a new level of page protection that only allows edits from accounts at least 30 days old and with 500 edits. The automatically assigned "extended confirmed" user right was created for this purpose. The protection level was created following this community discussion with the primary intention of enforcing various arbitration remedies that prohibited editors under the "30 days/500 edits" threshold to edit certain topic areas.

In July and August 2016, a request for comment established consensus for community use of the new protection level. Administrators are authorized to apply extended confirmed protection to combat any form of disruption (e.g. vandalism, sock puppetry, edit warring, etc.) on any topic, subject to the following conditions:

  • Extended confirmed protection may only be used in cases where semi-protection has proven ineffective. It should not be used as a first resort.
  • A bot will post a notification at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard of each use. MusikBot currently does this by updating a report, which is transcluded onto the noticeboard.
Please review the protection policy carefully before using this new level of protection on pages. Thank you.
This message was sent to the administrators' mass message list. To opt-out of future messages, please remove yourself from the list. 17:48, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

In light of the recent compromised accounts, you are encouraged to add this additional layer of security to your account. It may be enabled on your preferences page in the "User profile" tab under the "Basic information" section. For basic instructions on how to enable two-factor authentication, please see the developing help page for additional information. Important: Be sure to record the two-factor authentication key and the single use keys. If you lose your two factor authentication and do not have the keys, it's possible that your account will not be recoverable. Furthermore, you are encouraged to utilize a unique password and two-factor authentication for the email account associated with your Wikimedia account.

A new user right for New Page Patrollers[edit]

Hi Cerebellum.

A new user group, New Page Reviewer, has been created in a move to greatly improve the standard of new page patrolling. The user right can be granted by any admin at PERM. It is highly recommended that admins look beyond the simple numerical threshold and satisfy themselves that the candidates have the required skills of communication and an advanced knowledge of notability and deletion. Admins are automatically included in this user right.

It is anticipated that this user right will significantly reduce the work load of admins who patrol the performance of the patrollers. However,due to the complexity of the rollout, some rights may have been accorded that may later need to be withdrawn, so some help will still be needed to some extent when discovering wrongly applied deletion tags or inappropriate pages that escape the attention of less experienced reviewers, and above all, hasty and bitey tagging for maintenance. User warnings are available here but very often a friendly custom message works best.

If you have any questions about this user right, don't hesitate to join us at WT:NPR. (Sent to all admins).MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:47, 15 November 2016 (UTC)

New Page Review needs your help[edit]

Hi Cerebellum,

As an AfC reviewer you're probably aware that a new user right has been created for patrolling new pages (you might even have been granted the right already, and admins have it automatically).

Since July there has been a very serious backlog at Special:NewPagesFeed of over 14,000 pages, by far the worst since 2011, and we need an all out drive to get this back down to just a few hundred that can be easily maintained in the future. Unlike AfC, these pages are already in mainspace, and the thought of what might be there is quite scary. There are also many good faith article creators who need a simple, gentle push to the Tea House or their pages converted to Draft rather than being deleted.

Although New Page Reviewing can occasionally be somewhat more challenging than AfC, the criteria for obtaining the right are roughly the same. The Page Curation tool is even easier to use than the Helper Script, so it's likely that most AfC reviewers already have more than enough knowledge for the task of New Page Review.

It is hoped that AfC reviewers will apply for this right at WP:PERM and lend a hand. You'll need to have read the page at WP:NPR and the new tutorial.

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Don Allison[edit]

Your closing states, "The result was delete. The sources added by the IP are mostly local, and so do not fix the concern raised by the nominator. The only good source is [1], and one source is not enough to establish notability."

Nothing makes sense here. 

Your statement says "mostly local", which is not a policy concern even at WP:AUD for corporations. 

The nominator objects that only the hometown paper provides the information, which would be a valid concern in that WP:GNG requires "sources" (plural), and where the same paper might be considered as one source.  But there are many sources.

Even if you think there is only one "good" source, the "less-good" sources also contribute to WP:GNG.

Unscintillating (talk) 02:16, 24 November 2016 (UTC)
@Unscintillating: You may be right; I tend to think that local figures are less notable than national or international ones, so I extended the reasoning from WP:AUD to this article, even though it is a biography. As far as I can tell, all of the sources are local - even D Magazine, which I linked in the close, covers just the Dallas-Fort Worth area. I don't think any of the biography policies talk about local source though, with the exception of NPOL, so I guess I am out on a limb. Feel free to start a deletion review if you think I am wrong. --Cerebellum (talk) 02:56, 24 November 2016 (UTC)

Peerless Network[edit]

Hello - you left me a note about a move of the document Peerless Network to a draft section - so thought that I'd contact you to see how to proceed. An editor quickly put it up for "speedy deletion," stating that it fails the notability criteria. I couldn't disagree more - but at this point I've no idea how to prove this point. I've provided all references that are possible to provide - and provided arguments as to why the article should stand and why the company passes the credibility threshold imho (ie - they are responsible for technology that has made telecommunications as we now enjoy it possible. And won patents for this work.) Is this technology "article-worthy?" No - not really - which is why it is difficult to find "references." But "because" of the technology, companies and processes and the way that you and I use our telephones (both landlines and cellular/wifi) are improved - and that makes the company notable. (ever wonder how your wireless call moves from a cell tower to a wifi connection? Well, it is documented in one of the patents for Peerless.) If I include paragraphs about "these technologies" then I'll get dinged as "promotional." So - honestly, not sure how to proceed. But honestly, just hoping that one editor will recognize the importance of their work, deem it "notable" and publishable on Wikipedia. Hoping that you can provide guidance. Thank youJlk0221 (talk) 17:50, 28 November 2016 (UTC).

The user left me a similar message (because I deleted an orphaned redirect, they supposed I had deleted the article). I copied to Draft talk:Peerless Network what they wrote, because it makes a case for notability but (I have explained on their talk page) that will only be useful if sourced: deducing from the patents that the inventions had these important effects on the telecoms market would be OR. Any additional advice you can give would be welcome. JohnCD (talk) 22:42, 29 November 2016 (UTC)
@Jlk0221: I will take a look this week at the article and see what sources I can find to show notability, I'll get back to you by next weekend. --Cerebellum (talk) 21:20, 4 December 2016 (UTC)
