Quickie Spanish translation?[edit]

Got your name from Wikipedia:Translators available and see you are still editing often. Want to use below but some debate over the exact meaning from a mix of personal translation(s) and Translate.google. Could you help? (It's in Spanish from Spain, perhaps Catalan dialect.) From: Jesús Huerta de Soto website (Curriculum Vitae, Labor Editorial)

Translating Benjamin Moore Norman[edit]

Hello. I see you are listed as a Spanish-to-English translator. Would you please consider translating this page? His article would be useful on the English Wikipedia, as it comes up on Thomas Affleck (planter)'s page. He published an almanac apparently. Please reply on my talkpage to let me know if and when you could do this. Thank you.Zigzig20s (talk) 10:23, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

Rollback[edit]

Wikipedia Rollbacker.svg

Hi JTtheOG. After reviewing your request for rollback, I have enabled rollback on your account. Keep in mind these things when going to use rollback:

  • Getting rollback is no more momentous than installing Twinkle.
  • Rollback should be used to revert clear cases of vandalism only, and not good faith edits.
  • Rollback should never be used to edit war.
  • If abused, rollback rights can be revoked.
  • Use common sense.

If you no longer want rollback, contact me and I'll remove it. Also, for some more information on how to use rollback, see Wikipedia:New admin school/Rollback (even though you're not an admin). I'm sure you'll do great with rollback, but feel free to leave me a message on my talk page if you run into troubles or have any questions about appropriate/inappropriate use of rollback. Thank you for helping to reduce vandalism. Happy editing! Beeblebrox (talk) 22:56, 26 November 2014 (UTC)

Thank you. I will make sure to use it carefully. Hopefully we can all squash vandalism together. JTtheOG (talk) 03:32, 27 November 2014 (UTC)

Translation request[edit]

Hello. I see you're listed at Wikipedia:Translators available as being willing to translate from Spanish to English. I have a problem in that I'm unable to understand a question over at es:Wikipedia:Consultas which runs:

Origen del idioma ingles
Porque nos salen mas vellos a los hombres que a las mujeres.

What on earth is this guy on about? I try to answer questions over there, despite my complete ignorance of the language, because no-one else will, but occasionally Google Translate leaves me unable to get even the gist of the question, as here. Hope you don't mind me bothering you. --Antiquary (talk) 12:29, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

March 2015[edit]

Information icon Please refrain from making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia, as you did at Hugues-Wilfried Dah. Your edits appear to constitute vandalism and have been reverted or removed. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. Administrators have the ability to block users from editing if they repeatedly engage in vandalism. Thank you. GiantSnowman 09:20, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for the laugh, sir. I did not know that updating a player's stats and writing about a transfer constitutes vandalism, but if you want to do that, go ahead. I will not get into an edit war. JTtheOG (talk) 18:22, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

Translation request[edit]

I was wondering if you could translate the Spanish article (https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Provincia_de_Panamá_Oeste)? I am planning to create an English article on that. Sorry if that is too long for you.

Basketball articles[edit]

Hi. Mate im way more than you in basketball articles, and im little bit longer than you on wiki. There is no need to add countries, they just make mess in infobox. In 2015 almost all basketball clubs have their own articles so adding countries doesnt make sense at all. Also in article of Justin Robinson everything is in text, every country is already mentioned. There is no consensus about adding countries, and that players that you mentioned are NBA players so i will not delete countries, but for most European players and Americans in Europe we dont have countries in infobox.--Bozalegenda (talk) 14:50, 24 July 2015 (UTC)

Hello[edit]

I saw that you started patroling Margaret Weis bibliography, would you be so kind to point out other authors, within the following genres: space opera, military science fiction, historical fiction and high fantasy - that need redirection and creation of new bibliographic pages so that articles are more synthesized? Because as you can see R.A. Salvatore, Margaret Weis, Tad Williams and Terry Brooks' bibliographies needed to be created and redirected to more appropriate new pages, because these respective authors' pages were getting out of proportion.

Kindest regards: The Mad Hatter (talk)
A few more suggestions: David Drake, Lois McMaster Bujold, John Ringo, Tanya Huff, Roland J. Green, John G. Hemry, Christopher Anvil, F. Van Wyck Mason, Arnab Jan Deka, Yasushi Inoue, Brian K. Vaughan, Alejandro Jodorowsky, Jim Starlin. Good luck! JTtheOG (talk) 19:57, 28 September 2015 (UTC)

User:Bennyaha[edit]

Hi JT - just a thought on the boxing articles created by Bennyaha - would it better to advise him to write on article on the NZ boxing organisation and have the various boxers mentioned within that article. I am presuming the organisation meets the guidelines for organisations. NealeFamily (talk) 22:35, 21 October 2015 (UTC)

Yeah and maybe he could add short bios for each one, specifically the champions. Good idea JTtheOG (talk) 01:01, 22 October 2015 (UTC)

As much as i would love to make articles about these organisations, they are extremely anal about this sort of things and if they dont like it they have tantrums about not liking it. The organisations are run either by really old men that dont keep up with the present or inexperience people that like to threat with legal proceedings because they have the money to do so --Bennyaha (talk) 00:36, 23 October 2015 (UTC)

Hi JT - can I ask for a small favour - I am trying to assist Bennyaha get through the minefield of Wiki rules. He is new to them and the etiquette from his comment above. What I would like is if you could let me know if you come across any non-compliant articles before deleting them. My plan is to transfer them to his sandpit, and develop an approach that is compliant. To do this I will need assistance from editors who are familiar with boxing - I am not. If you take a look at his talk page you will see my discussion with him. Feel free to comment back to me if you have any suggestions. NealeFamily (talk) 09:42, 25 October 2015 (UTC)
@User:NealeFamily @User:Bennyaha Here is my personal opinion on each of his articles:

His articles are not bad. They are actually above average with plenty of good information. If only he could help us make articles about non-New Zealand boxers too... He could be a great addition to the team. JTtheOG (talk) 18:20, 25 October 2015 (UTC)

Thanks JT - I will encourage him to join the team - NealeFamily (talk) 22:18, 25 October 2015 (UTC)

Article upgrade assistance request (Pre-translation stage)[edit]

Seasons Greetings,

This is in reference to a relatively new umbrella article on en-wikipedia named Ceremonial pole. Ceremonial pole is a human tradition since ancient times; either existed in past at some point of time, or still exists in some cultures across global continents from north to south & from east to west. Ceremonial poles are used to symbolize a variety of concepts in several different world cultures.

Through article Ceremonial pole we intend to take encyclopedic note of cultural aspects and festive celebrations around Ceremonial pole as an umbrella article and want to have historical, mythological, anthropological aspects, reverence or worships wherever concerned as a small part.

While Ceremonial poles have a long past and strong presence but usually less discussed subject. Even before we seek translation of this article in global languages, we need to have more encyclopedic information/input about Ceremonial poles from all global cultures and languages. And we seek your assistance in the same.

Since other contributors to the article are insisting for reliable sources and Standard native english; If your contributions get deleted (for some reason like linguistics or may be your information is reliable but unfortunately dosent match expectations of other editors) , please do list the same on Talk:Ceremonial pole page so that other wikipedians may help improve by interlanguage collaborations, and/or some other language wikipedias may be interested in giving more importance to reliablity of information over other factors on their respective wikipedia.

This particular request is being made to you since your user name is listed in Wikipedia:Translators available list.

Thanking you with warm regards Mahitgar (talk) 06:08, 24 October 2015 (UTC)

Belarusian Cup[edit]

Hi! Just wanted to make a quick notice - I'm planning to expand Belarusian Cup articles for each season in the near future (including the ones that are currently red links) with more data (similar to the recent seasons), so you can save your time for something else, if you were planning to create other seasons yourself. Otherwise, good job! -BlameRuiner (talk) 08:36, 16 November 2015 (UTC)

@BlameRuiner: Sounds great! Do you suggest I help by creating any other country's cup seasons? JTtheOG (talk) 17:40, 16 November 2015 (UTC)
As for other countries, you may do what you wish. I know there's a lot of redlinked and stub-class competition articles (cups, leagues, whatever) out there, but I don't really have time to work on them, my hands are full with Belarus stuff as it is (as you can probably guess by my contributions history). -BlameRuiner (talk) 07:58, 17 November 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Key Loop page AfD[edit]

Hi, I saw the template you posted on the Key Loop Highway page, but I would argue that the page should, if not speedy, be put up for AfD. I'm from that area and no one calls it "the Key Loop." Also the piece is rife with misinformation, for instance there's only a single tunnel on US 1 in Florida, and it's in Fort Lauderdale, miles north. The information, such as it is, also just duplicates info from Seven Mile Bridge, Overseas Highway, and U.S._Route_1_in_Florida#The_Keys. Wanted to bring this to your attention before I AfD'ed it but IMO it has no place here. JamesG5 (talk) 19:28, 28 November 2015 (UTC)

@JamesG5: I actually didn't place any templates; I simply rearranged them. Either way, I'm fine with the AfD if the article is, in fact, full of misinformation. Good eye. JTtheOG (talk) 21:30, 28 November 2015 (UTC)

Hi JT ,

I am new to wikipedia . I just saw that my new page got deleted . I am still not finished with my page editing for review I am still working on the page . Please suggest me changes I need to do I will make necessary changes . Just to introduce I am volunteer for this organization which is 30 yrs old, never had wikipedia page like UNICEF or RedCross organizations. I am trying to learn wiki standards little daily and writing this page . please advise . — Preceding unsigned comment added by Wearehere1995 (talkcontribs) 03:57, 15 December 2015 (UTC)

@Wearehere1995: I tagged your page because your page looked very much like an advertisement. That's why it could be what we call "Conflict of Interest (COI)" editing. Read more about this here. Although COI editing is strongly discouraged, you can still try to create an unbiased encyclopedic entry about the organization. First, though, you have to make sure that it receives "significant coverage in reliable sources that are independent of the subject." The guidelines for notability are detailed here. Feel free to ask me anything else. JTtheOG (talk) 05:07, 15 December 2015 (UTC)
@JT: ..Thank you very much for your offer and clarifying few things .Can you please guide me the first step I need to focus .I would like to know more about what you called "significant coverage in reliable sources that are independent of the subject" I think I added the 2 sources of websites that have details, Is there anything else I need to work/collect .

Living persons[edit]

I just undid a BLProd you placed on Mathias McGirk. The WP:BLPROD only applies to those who are alive or very recently dead; as the subject was described as a judge in 1820, were they alive they would be over 200 years old. Under WP:BLP, even if we do not have a sourced statement on an individual's death, if they were born over 115 years ago, we assume them to be dead. --Nat Gertler (talk) 03:50, 9 February 2016 (UTC)
