November 3 2013[edit]

Please stop. If you continue to vandalize pages, as you did to María Capovilla, you will be blocked from editing Wikipedia. --218.110.38.3 (talk) 06:29, 3 November 2013 (UTC)

I wonder if placing false vandalism messages on user talk pages can get you blocked from editing. CommanderLinx (talk) 11:30, 3 November 2013 (UTC)

Moving my post[edit]

If I had wanted to post that message to the deletion discussion, I would have. I chose to post it to his userpage as a semi-private message from me to him. In the future, before taking it upon yourself to move other people's discussions/posts, you might wish to ask them first. Don't move it back.... what's done is done. – JBarta (talk) 16:34, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

Longevity drafts[edit]

One reason I suspect for all of this is the old Arbcom case. A lot of the same users are involved. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 06:28, 24 December 2014 (UTC)

Blimey, this has been going on for an unusually long time. Not really sure why they can't just work together to improve existing articles instead of hiding on their user pages... CommanderLinx (talk) 18:20, 28 December 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for January 6[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Antonio Todde, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Italian. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 09:01, 6 January 2015 (UTC)

Please comment on Wikipedia:Miscellany for deletion/User talk:AdmiralAlex[edit]

Hi, though this is not in exactly the same vein as the longevity-related user pages that were put up for Mfd this appears sufficiently similar to deserve examination. So far I have had no input for any other users so would appreciate your input. Cheers, DerbyCountyinNZ (Talk Contribs) 22:00, 19 March 2015 (UTC)

Redirecting of articles[edit]

Hello,

I've noticed that on several occasions recently you have decided to redirect (in effect, to delete) entire supercentenarian biographies WITHOUT GAINING CONSENSUS, namely:

  • Gertrud Henze
  • Frieda Szwillus
  • Ethel Farrell
  • Colombe Benoit-LeClerc

And you say that you will probably do the same to Antonia Gerena Rivera's article as well.

Now, you took Colombe Benoit-LeClerc's article to an AfD after I requested you do so, and the outcome of the discussion was "delete". Fine. I do not have an issue with an article being deleted if consensus has reached, but I do not see why you think it's acceptable to just delete an entire article because YOU and YOU ONLY want to.

Explain please. -- Ollie231213 (talk) 21:53, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

See here. The common outcomes of a lot of these articles is either "delete" or "redirect to <country>". If you want Antonia Rivera to keep her article, then find reliable sources and expand it. At the moment there is nothing of value other than her name, age and country which is already present in List of oldest living people, List of supercentenarians from the United States, List of Puerto Rican supercentenarians, List of North American supercentenarians, List of the verified oldest women and List of the verified oldest people. I will wait a few months to see if this article gets improved as I just placed a notability tag this month. CommanderLinx (talk) 03:13, 28 March 2015 (UTC)
It may often be the case that they are deleted after a discussion, but not always. And quite honestly, I don't see why your judgement alone is a good enough reason to destroy an entire biography. I know that AfD discussions are a pain but when talking about deletions of whole articles, I think they are necessary. I don't apologise for insisting on democracy. -- Ollie231213 (talk) 15:11, 28 March 2015 (UTC)
Read the WP:WOP page, there's a section that states: " A subject whose biography is based on only one or two reliable sources establishing notability may belong on a list, rather than in a stand-alone biography, unless these sources provide significant details beyond longevity.". Look at Antonia's article as of writing, we know her name, her age and country. That's it, with no improvement since its creation a few months ago. As per the WOP Wikiproject, her article should be redirected to one of the six or so lists she's already in. CommanderLinx (talk) 02:43, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

Sockpuppet investigation[edit]

Why this??? [1] please explain to me. I did not do anything wrong with this account.---STM201 (talk) 13:15, 19 April 2015 (UTC)

Please Stop Deleting My Edits On Supercentenarians[edit]

Hello CommanderLinx, can you explain to me why you have or keep deleted my edits to Supercentenarians such as Violet Brown and Maria Capovilla. You told me to back up my info. I did. Now I'm getting messages from either DerbyCountyInNZ or you, saying i can't back up my facts with other Wikipedia articles. If you click on this link[1] it will take you to a page that specifically states the oldest/last person by year of birth. And if your still paranoid that the info I'm giving is false, the information on that page is from the Gerontology Research Group. I hope you understand what I'm saying.

Best Wishes, Crimson&Clover71

Possible disruptive editing[edit]

Hi, I think it's only fair to inform you that you have been mentioned here as a possible source of disruptive editing. In my capacity as an administrator I generally do not make unilateral decisions in cases such as these, but I will be advising Waenceslaus to escalate the issue to a venue where a group of administrators will debate how to go forward. Editors who are found to be disrupting the Wilipedia to make a point are frequently blocked to prevent further misuse of editing privileges. --Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 03:08, 5 July 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.
