Spamming[edit]

Hi,

Thanks for your message about removing my links from the article on infant baptism. The links were to a scholarly book I have written that is quite relevant to the topic. Were they removed because they linked to Amazon? If so, can I re-list the reference without the link and provide just the ISBN?

Thanks for any help!

@Elleos1212: Thanks for contacting me about your edits. You may have noticed that I left another message on your talk page (here). The issue is that authors are expected not to add their works to Wikipedia because of WP:COI. A link to Amazon those does not help either. But as I mentioned on your talk page, there are plenty you can contribute with at WP. The Teahouse is a wonderful place to start. And since your book (which is of interest to me too) should have an updated bibliography, you would be in a unique position to revise the ones we have here, and help to polish our articles from a neutral position WP:NPOV. Please, let me know how could I help. Caballero/Historiador 17:56, 26 November 2016 (UTC)

ArbCom Elections 2016: Voting now open![edit]

Scale of justice 2.svg Hello, Caballero1967. Voting in the 2016 Arbitration Committee elections is open from Monday, 00:00, 21 November through Sunday, 23:59, 4 December to all unblocked users who have registered an account before Wednesday, 00:00, 28 October 2016 and have made at least 150 mainspace edits before Sunday, 00:00, 1 November 2016.

The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to impose binding solutions to disputes between editors, primarily for serious conduct disputes the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the authority 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 in the 2016 election, please review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page. MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 22:08, 21 November 2016 (UTC)

Draft:Nirhua Ricksawala 2[edit]

Hello, I'm slightly confused by your comment on the above. It is an abandoned draft which has not been edited for six months and therefore is eligible for speedy deletion. It is not a submitted draft via AfC. Regards, Eagleash (talk) 05:33, 1 December 2016 (UTC)

  • @Eagleash: I was confused as well when I did not find the button for rejection. That's why I left the comment. I must be missing something here. My intent was to make sure the article is either deleted or improved. As it seems there is no one to improve it, then, to have it deleted. But there was no option for suggesting it. Thanks for your help. Caballero/Historiador 05:38, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
I don't think there would be a button for rejection, as the draft has never been submitted: see WP:G13 (one of the criteria for speedy deletion). Eagleash (talk) 05:47, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
Thanks. So, what happens with them? Caballero/Historiador 05:50, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
They are tagged with {{Db-g13}} which produces the CSD notice at the top of the article and one of the Admins. who 'monitor' the CSD lists will delete it. Regards, Eagleash (talk) 05:58, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
Many Thanks for the info. Caballero/Historiador 06:02, 1 December 2016 (UTC)

Alejandro Jodorowsky[edit]

I am writing in response to the removal of my edit on Alejandro Jodorowski as "not being constructive." Jodorowski, in his own words, is an admitted rapist. His bio should not simply contain praise, but an overview of his doings and accomplishments. He is quoted admitting this act in the book about the film El Topo, and his admittance is referenced on Wikipedia here.

I believe it is very constructive for those who are learning about the man to have a full picture of exactly the type of human being that he is. To discount this, to sweep it under the rug, is negligent. Drollison1983 (talk) 20:28, 7 December 2016 (UTC)drollison1983 12/7/16Drollison1983 (talk)

@Drollison1983: Thanks for writing and responding to my revert. If it is as you claim, follow these steps. 1) Place a note on the article's talk page with wording similar to what you just wrote here. 2) Rather than just reverting my edit, rewrite your contribution in a way that does not appear as you are vandalizing the article or disrupting editing. Perhaps add the wikilink you provided above, but make sure that it follows the narrative in the article's text--certainly not in the lede unless you have strong reasons for it, which you would have to justify in the talk page. 3) And, more importantly, provide a reliable source (WP:RS) to back your claim. These steps will ensure that your contribution would be seen as in good faith (WP:GF), and will increase the chances of staying longer in the text. Articles about living people are patrolled closely and we prefer to err on the side of a positive image than on the opposite. So, please, consider your intention carefully, and let me know how to help. Caballero/Historiador 21:12, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

Why you can't accept my helpfull link? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Emil0072 (talkcontribs) 08:24, 13 December 2016 (UTC)

  • @Emil0072: Thanks for asking. Wikipedia cannot accept this type of link because it is considered promotional. Please, take a look here: WP:PROMO. Let me know how to help. Cheers, Caballero/Historiador 08:31, 13 December 2016 (UTC)

Attention: WikiProject African diaspora participants[edit]

Hello fellow project participants. Not sure how many users are still active as normal Wikipedia editors but felt the need to attempt to get a gauge on who can be called on for help with articles falling under the umbrella of the African diaspora project. According to the project's article table there are over six thousand articles related to the African diaspora; there's not a hundred at FA/GA grade and there's over twelve hundred that are unassessed. With Wikipedia being one of the major information reference points in the world today we should consider this unacceptable. Much work needs to be done on the rating of the importance of articles as well. With more communication amongst participants and a dedication to addressing the articles on the to-do list I believe we can make this WikiProject one of the most well organized and thorough on the site. If you are interested in collaborative work with some of your fellow project members, have certain expertise on any particular subjects, ideals on/about the WikiProject, etc. simply drop your name under the "Project revision" section I've created on the project's talk page and state your intentions and main points of interest in our WikiProject and we can attempt to move forward from there. Hoping to hear from everyone soon! WikiGuy86 (talk) 03:51, 24 April 2017 (UTC)

review[edit]

Hi I am new to Wikipedia, so forgive me if this is not the correct place to ask for help. I recently created an article for David Benac, but it needs reviewing. Any help would certainly be appreciated. It is wonderful that you offer your time. :) Thanks Nicool9 (talk) 22:07, 10 July 2017 (UTC)Nicool9

Copyvioissues[edit]

This edit has copyvio links to copyright material kept on Google drive. Could you please remove the links, just cite the books. Thanks.Doug Weller talk 18:50, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

Doug Weller Thanks, but I could not find any copyvio issues in my short contribution on Dec. 25, 2015, which was a small step to help rewrite the article's lead and have already been changed. I would like to see what you saw, since, as I recall, I copied my words from no place. Caballero/Historiador 19:29, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
Not your words. Wasn't it you that added the Google drive links? Those are the links I meant. Doug Weller talk 19:53, 25 September 2017 (UTC)

@Legacypac: Thanks for taking the time with a nearly outdated submission. I will look over at the new data and see if there is nothing new that may have changed and perhaps justified the submission. Again, thanks. Caballero/Historiador 20:59, 15 February 2018 (UTC)
