When leaving me a message, please DO NOT ADDRESS ME AS SIR.
If you do, there's a good chance I won't answer

But this in no way affects Chrissymad's ability to respond. She just wants everyone to know.

In regards to UVM, you stated that my changes were promotional. I believe that at least the Online Training for UVM should have been left. That was written by one of Aldec's language experts and Research Engineer and it provides readers a free training to learn UVM. It only provides people with a resource to aid those interested in learning more about UVM instead of it being promotional. More information about the online training by Aldec for UVM can be found here. I hope that this can be reconsidered.

Unwarranted assumption[edit]

I see that there are currently messages on this page from two different editors who address you as "sir", and another one in your latest talk page archive. I, on the other hand, have not been addressed as "sir" in at least the last 1000 edits to my talk page. I wonder why so many people assume you are male. The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 14:38, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

JamesBWatson I wonder daily myself since I've never met a male named "Chrissy" ;) CHRISSYMAD ❯❯❯¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 14:41, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
Which reminds me, maybe I should add in big bold letters "PLEASE DO NOT ADDRESS ME AS SIR." CHRISSYMAD ❯❯❯¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 14:41, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

Don't forget about Chrissy Boy. Natureium (talk) 20:13, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
Personally, I am happy not to be addressed as "sir", because to me it has a feel of cringing sycophancy, as well as being stiff and over formal. However, the fact that you get it so often and I so rarely puzzles me. I have now checked back and the last time I got a "sir" on my talk page was in May 2017, not far short of 2000 talk page edits ago, while you get it quite frequently. What do I do that discourages editors from calling me "sir"? There must be something. The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 15:06, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
  • You could always do like Premeditated Chaos did and put the “obnoxious pink userbox” up. I’ve been told it works :p TonyBallioni (talk) 15:09, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
  • I'm not sure, Mrs. Watson. You could always add "sir" to your signature, and take out that pseudonym part. Drmies (talk) 20:08, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
I read this conversation and thought of Peppermint Patty telling Marcie to "stop calling me sir"! Just sayin' Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 18:03, 31 August 2018 (UTC)
Well spotted, @Ritchie333:. I had forgotten that. The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 13:17, 6 September 2018 (UTC)
  • For a very long time, I also thought Chrissy is a male editor; as nickname for chris/christopher. Now i think it is short for Christabella/Michelangelo/Christine. @JamesBWatson: I think it depends on what type of editors you are dealing with. Most of the indian editors tend to use sir/madam. Especially the paid ones. —usernamekiran(talk) 11:56, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
@Usernamekiran: yes, in fact when I told a couple of members of my family about this I said that I bet the editors were Indian. Perhaps the answer to my question is just that Chrissy does more editing than I do in India-related areas. The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 14:48, 11 September 2018 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your message. In order that I can edit this page appropriately, I would be grateful for a bit more clarity on the changes required. Thank you. Lseio (talk) 14:24, 12 September 2018 (UTC)

Assistance with March Networks draft submitted to AfC?[edit]

Hello, Chrissy -

Thanks very much for reviewing my proposed March Networks article; I appreciate it. Since the submission has been declined, I was wondering if you'd be open to providing me with some recommendations on how to improve it so that it better meets NPOV and other requirements? I'd love the opportunity to pick your brain about how to make sure we're stringently following the MOS.

Also, because I want to make sure I'm completely transparent about things, you can see my COI declaration on my user page regarding this submission.

Hey! Thanks for reviewing. Could I get a little help with my references? What criteria is not fulfilled? What is fulfilled with the current sources? Thank You!

Pharmacy Management System reappears[edit]

Software programs for pharmacy workflow management appears to be nearly the same content as Draft:Pharmacy management system, recreated under a new name. David notMD (talk) 00:53, 14 September 2018 (UTC)

I shortened it by half, but IMO still an iffy article.David notMD (talk) 14:37, 14 September 2018 (UTC)
Another editor changed name of Software.... to Pharmacy management system, and then left a note at the Draft under that name - still out there - that the article now exists in the shortened form, so the draft should not be reviewed again. David notMD (talk) 17:17, 16 September 2018 (UTC)


Why have you reverted this edit - the reasons for the changes are well explained in the edit history.

All the links where to different compilations of the same work. This work needs an article on it. (talk) 01:22, 14 September 2018 (UTC)

Because it's a disambiguation page and is useful. Write a separate article and leave the DAB. CHRISSYMAD ❯❯❯¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 01:23, 14 September 2018 (UTC)
The name of the article is/ would be Óláfs saga Tryggvasonar - no disambiguation is really needed because they are all versions of the same work .. there is only one topic. (talk) 01:29, 14 September 2018 (UTC)


Hello Chrissymad,

Will you please read the discussion on my talk page, and take another look? I believe that developments in the past two years means that this duo, while not yet notable in 2016, is now notable in late 2018. Please reconsider. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 02:22, 14 September 2018 (UTC)

I did and I see no actual change from the several other times, as I've detailed on the talk page of the draft. The Billboard source was present in the prior AFD/MFD and iTunes charts do not count. CHRISSYMAD ❯❯❯¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 02:29, 14 September 2018 (UTC)
And the rest are interviews, otherwise unreliable or generally worthless for determining notability (like CHRISSYMAD ❯❯❯¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 02:32, 14 September 2018 (UTC)
Cullen328 You're also more than welcome to move it to main space if you feel it's appropriate but the sources provided by the person on your talk page, as i've pointed out do not meet the threshold of establishing notability in the slightest. Interviews, a generic website link, sources that were already present in the prior AFD'd article etc...CHRISSYMAD ❯❯❯¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 02:37, 14 September 2018 (UTC)

NPR Newsletter No.13 18 September 2018[edit]

Hello Chrissymad, thank you for your work reviewing New Pages!

The New Page Feed currently has 2700 unreviewed articles, up from just 500 at the start of July. For a while we were falling behind by an average of about 40 articles per day, but we have stabilised more recently. Please review some articles from the back of the queue if you can (Sort by: 'Oldest' at Special:NewPagesFeed), as we are very close to having articles older than one month.

Project news
As part of this project, the feed will have some larger updates to functionality next month. Specifically, ORES predictions will be built in, which will automatically flag articles for potential issues such as vandalism or spam. Copyright violation detection will also be added to the new page feed. See the projects's talk page for more info.
Moving to Draft and Page Mover
  • Some unsuitable new articles can be best reviewed by moving them to the draft space, but reviewers need to do this carefully and sparingly. It is most useful for topics that look like they might have promise, but where the article as written would be unlikely to survive AfD. If the article can be easily fixed, or if the only issue is a lack of sourcing that is easily accessible, tagging or adding sources yourself is preferable. If sources do not appear to be available and the topic does not appear to be notable, tagging for deletion is preferable (PROD/AfD/CSD as appropriate). See additional guidance at WP:DRAFTIFY.
  • If the user moves the draft back to mainspace, or recreates it in mainspace, please do not re-draftify the article (although swapping it to maintain the page history may be advisable in the case of copy-paste moves). AfC is optional except for editors with a clear conflict of interest.
  • Articles that have been created in contravention of our paid-editing-requirements or written from a blatant NPOV perspective, or by authors with a clear COI might also be draftified at discretion.
  • The best tool for draftification is User:Evad37/MoveToDraft.js(info). Kindly adapt the text in the dialogue-pop-up as necessary (the default can also be changed like this). Note that if you do not have the Page Mover userright, the redirect from main will be automatically tagged as CSD R2, but in some cases it might be better to make this a redirect to a different page instead.
  • The Page Mover userright can be useful for New Page Reviewers; occasionally page swapping is needed during NPR activities, and it helps avoid excessive R2 nominations which must be processed by admins. Note that the Page Mover userright has higher requirements than the NPR userright, and is generally given to users active at Requested Moves. Only reviewers who are very experienced and are also very active reviewers are likely to be granted it solely for NPP activities.
List of other useful scripts for New Page Reviewing

  • Twinkle provides a lot of the same functionality as the page curation tools, and some reviewers prefer to use the Twinkle tools for some/all tasks. It can be activated simply in the gadgets section of 'preferences'. There are also a lot of options available at the Twinkle preferences panel after you install the gadget.
  • In terms of other gadgets for NPR, HotCat is worth turning on. It allows you to easily add, remove, and change categories on a page, with name suggestions.
  • MoreMenu also adds a bunch of very useful links for diagnosing and fixing page issues.
  • User:Equazcion/ScriptInstaller.js(info): Installing scripts doesn't have to be complicated. Go to your common.js and copy importScript( 'User:Equazcion/ScriptInstaller.js' ); into an empty line, now you can install all other scripts with the click of a button from the script page! (Note you need to be at the ".js" page for the script for the install button to appear, not the information page)
  • User:TheJosh/Scripts/NewPagePatrol.js(info): Creates a scrolling new pages list at the left side of the page. You can change the number of pages shown by adding the following to the next line on your common.js page (immediately after the line importing this script): npp_num_pages=20; (Recommended 20, but you can use any number from 1 to 50).
  • User:Primefac/revdel.js(info): Is requesting revdel complicated and time consuming? This script helps simplify the process. Just have the Copyvio source URL and go to the history page and collect your diff IDs and you can drop them into the script Popups and it will create a revdel request for you.
  • User:Lourdes/PageCuration.js(info): Creates a "Page Curation" link to Special:NewPagesFeed up near your sandbox link.
  • User:Writ Keeper/Scripts/deletionFinder.js: Creates links next to the title of each page which show up if it has been previously deleted or nominated for deletion.
  • User:Evad37/rater.js(info): A fantastic tool for adding WikiProject templates to article talk pages. If you add: rater_autostartNamespaces = 0; to the next line on your common.js, the prompt will pop up automatically if a page has no Wikiproject templates on the talk page (note: this can be a bit annoying if you review redirects or dab pages commonly).

Mohammed Al Nabhani[edit]

Why did you decline Draft:Mohammed Al Nabhani? The sources in the article show that he passes WP:NTENNIS (specifically, his long Davis cup record and his ATP main draw appearance). IffyChat -- 08:09, 19 September 2018 (UTC)

I did not decline for notability. I declined it because it is improperly sourced and there are NO references.CHRISSYMAD ❯❯❯¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 11:14, 19 September 2018 (UTC)
The external links are references to the statistics that support his notability claim. IffyChat -- 11:46, 19 September 2018 (UTC)
and we require in line sources per the ILC declones. Go fix it if you want to accept it but the bulk of the content is unsourced. Again. I did not decline for notability CHRISSYMAD ❯❯❯¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 12:02, 19 September 2018 (UTC)
WP:MINREF and WP:BLPRS only requires inline citations if the material is being challenged or is contentious, neither of which are the case here. IffyChat -- 12:12, 19 September 2018 (UTC)
that applies in main space. If we weren’t allowed to decline for ILC, then it wouldn’t be a option. I’ve explained my piece, of you want to fix it and accept it, be my guest.CHRISSYMAD ❯❯❯¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 12:14, 19 September 2018 (UTC)
And I'll note this was moved to draft by an experienced editor, Boleyn, for precisely the reason I've declined it. You adding one more basic listing as an external link does not change this. CHRISSYMAD ❯❯❯¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 13:41, 19 September 2018 (UTC)
If this article were nominated for deletion at AFD instead of being draftified, would it be likely to survive? IffyChat -- 13:58, 19 September 2018 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) Iffy, the issue with allowing pages through AfC without proper sourcing is that they tend to stay in that state for a long time until someone nominates it for deletion or sends it back to draftspace. In this case, that's already happened, so references to reliable sources must be added to the article before it can be accepted. I just did a quick Google news search [2], and I see plenty of sources that can be used to improve the article. Add two or three of them and resubmit. There's no sense in arguing about this further.

Article for review[edit]

KankP (talk) 11:24, 20 September 2018 (UTC)

Dear (User:Chrissymad) - I have recently started contributing to Wikipedia community in volunteer capacity and have made a contribution ( Somehow this is marked for deletion and I don't understand why as all the references are of very repute, reliable, authentic and prestigious. Also the text sourcing and formatting is also in a standard format. Would request you to have a review and suggest me if you see any improvement to help me make my contribution worthy for wikipedia.

Looking forward to learn and contribute.
