Question about deleting an article[edit]

Hello, You deleted an article about a Persian Musician without participating in the discussion associated with the article. Since the concern was lack of an independent website presenting information about the article I used the input wiki live chat and the on going discussion to modify and resource and added multiple additional source and also an independent websites conforming the her information about in an article specifically about her. after adding new sources I had the people in live chat help review the source and they said that the notice on the page will be removed since the concerns have been addressed. However today I saw that article was deleted by you without any input and participation on the discussion about the article. I would appreciate if you tell me the issues that you saw with the article after I added the new references. Thanksiranianmusic (talk) 17:04, 12 July 2015 (UTC)

Hi, the person who closes the discussion cannot participate (please read our deletion process). My role as closer of the discussion is to judge the consensus. The consensus of experienced Wikimedians participating, referencing policy, was that the sources provided do not meet the verifiability standard for independence and our Music Notability policy. If you wish to appeal the decision to delete the article, you must do so at Deletion Review.

Ola High School (Georgia) protection level[edit]

Hello Daniel. On 22 September 2015 you template-protected Ola High School (Georgia) for page moves (log). Did you perhaps misclick when protecting the page? Thanks, Evad37 [talk] 02:09, 29 September 2015 (UTC)

Thanks Evad, I'm guessing that's what I did. Fixed now :) Daniel (talk) 21:29, 30 September 2015 (UTC)

someone you blocked before is doing vandalism again[edit]

A vandalism only account is back again and doing nothing but vandalizing articles with lame stupidity. [1] You blocked them previously this month for doing this before. No edits that aren't vandalism. Dream Focus 21:28, 30 September 2015 (UTC)

Good timing on the post Dream Focus, I was only going to be online for five minutes and you caught me! Blocked for a week.

Hello, I am querying your deletion, you state (G12: Unambiguous copyright infringement of, I am confused the webpage you refer to is actually a page I have created and have maintained since 1994, so can I ask that you undelete the above Draft, and allow me to make sure the information on meets the Wikipedia copyright guidelines

thankyou Grumpy fire (talk) 01:28, 21 November 2015 (UTC) Grumpyfire

   Grumpy fire, I don't mind undeleting it, but you'll need to do one or both of the following:
   File a ticket through WP:OTRS giving Wikipedia permission to use the material.
   Place a comment on the website that gives up the content as fair use.
   I'd recommend that you do the first (OTRS) before doing the second, since that would ensure that Wikipedia would be able to use the content. The problem with just stating it on here is that we can't really verify that you are you, whereas we could do this via you e-mailing OTRS. Placing a fair use disclaimer on the bottom of your page would be helpful, but it'd pretty much require that you insert a Creative Commons license that satisfied Wikipedia, which would likely be this CC license. If you want to insert this, that should do the job as well but I'd recommend also doing the OTRS ticket just as a safety precaution and a general CYA type of deal. It'd also be good since they'd be able to walk you through the process of doing this and also help determine what you can do to preserve your rights over the work. I'm not terribly familiar with the process, so all I can really do is point you in their general direction. Tokyogirl79 (。◕‿◕。) 05:33, 21 November 2015 (UTC)

Tokyogirl79 hey thanks for this will do both as you suggest, with regard to the do I have to place a fair use disclaimer on all the pages or just the main page? Grumpy fire (talk) 07:02, 21 November 2015 (UTC)Grumpy fire

   It's best to make it visible on all pages just in case, since usually people will just take a quick look at the page to see if there's a copyright disclaimer. You could probably get around this a little by creating a page for the copyright information and then putting it in the header bar in its own little tab. That way it'd be visible to anyone coming into the page (you could label it something like "fair use rationale" or "copyright information"). Since it'd be in the header bar (which appears to be on all of the pages), you wouldn't have to add it manually to every single page, which can be very time consuming.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

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.

Sebastian Robertson article rewrite[edit]

Dear Daniel, I just wrote and published an article in the place of an article that you had nominated for deletion earlier this year about Sebastian Robertson, son of the The Band's Robbie Robertson. Looking at the deletion discussion, the page was deemed Wikipedia:Autobiography and Wikipedia:Too soon and was deleted for both of those reasons.

Based on the research that I did on Mr. Robertson, I feel that Wikipedia:Too soon no longer qualifies, as his work as a children's author has been reviewed by Rolling Stone, Publishers Weekly, Booklist, and School Library Journal amongst others. The latter three all wrote reviews of his most recent book just this past year, in fact. There are dedicated articles about Robertson and his work as an author and composer in Rolling Stone, Huffington Post, and American Songwriter, and he has been referenced in Entertainment Weekly, Sound & Vision, and numerous other publications. I sourced many of these publications in my article, which you can see listed in the references section.

Also it is definitely not an autobiography, as I am not Sebastian Robertson. I just have been taking an interest in Robbie Robertson lately, and am fulfilling a personal interest in researching him and his music. It was through this that I came upon his son Sebastian's story, so I decided to write about him.

Also please note that everything in the article has been sourced to the very best of my ability. There are 22 sources listed in the new article.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions and I hope you have a great new year!

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Daniel. 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. 17:49, 23 September 2016 (UTC)
