Sock notices[edit]

Hi Domdeparis, re: this, not sure if you were aware or not, but there is no requirement that we notify suspected socks. And in my years of experience, I have yet to see the benefit of doing this, other than tipping off the sock operator so that they can quickly create a new account. Regards, Cyphoidbomb (talk) 15:25, 26 July 2019 (UTC)

@Cyphoidbomb: thanks for the headsup. --Dom from Paris (talk) 15:26, 26 July 2019 (UTC)

Stop deleting importrant pages![edit]

This user deleted at least three pages with importrant information (I can't find their analogs in Russian and German Wikipedia!). I try to ask Dom from Paris to stop deleting pages if he doesn't want to be banned! Гимназист1748 (talk) 12:02, 29 July 2019 (UTC)

Hi @Гимназист1748: thanks for the "friendly" message you just left me! Maybe you could start by explaining what pages you are talking about. Also why you think I would be banned, if you tell me why you think I have done something wrong I will try and explain why I did what I did. Normally I don't take kindly to people leaving agressive messages on my talk page but today I'm feeling magnanimous! cheers Dom from Paris (talk) 12:59, 29 July 2019 (UTC)

Basketball at the 2019 Pan American Games – Women's 3x3 tournament[edit]

This was in the similar section compared to my page and yet that doesn't get taken to draft while my mine does. Why?? HawkAussie (talk) 12:39, 30 July 2019 (UTC)

@HawkAussie: hi, I'm afraid I can't speak for the other reviewer but I can explain why I draftified the article you created.
I moved it because there were no sources at all so as per WP:DRAFTIFY which states
The community has also allowed for new articles to be moved to draft space as an alternative to deletion. Below are a set of best practices to follow when draftifying an article in these circumstances. As part of the review of new pages, an unreviewed page may be moved to draft if:
  1. the topic has some potential merit, and
  2. the article does not meet the required standard, and
  3. there is no evidence of active improvement.
  4. or when the author clearly has a conflict of interest (per WP:COIEDIT).
All articles have to be verifiable and we should not be creating unsourced articles in main-space. All articles must meet WP:GNG which means there has to be multiple sources. I hope this clears up the question for you. --Dom from Paris (talk) 13:28, 30 July 2019 (UTC)
That is understandable. HawkAussie (talk) 22:41, 30 July 2019 (UTC)

Second account[edit]

In refernce to what was posted on my talk page;

"Hello, I noticed that you may have recently made edits to Grzegorz Motyka while logged out. Wikipedia's policy on multiple accounts usually does not allow the use of both an account and an IP address by the same person in the same setting and doing so may result in your account being blocked from editing. Additionally, making edits while logged out reveals your IP address, which may allow others to determine your location and identity. If this was not your intention, please remember to log in when editing. Thank you. Dom from Paris (talk) 14:29, 30 July 2019 (UTC)"

I do not have a second account. Sometimes I use my mobile phone to make minor edits, but other than that I have only used the account OLLSZCZ to make edits on Grzegorz Motyka. I hope this clears any confusion that you may have.

Thank you,

OLLSZCZ (talk) 16:00, 30 July 2019 (UTC)

Hi @OLLSZCZ: no I didn't suggest that you had a 2nd account but that you edited the page when logged out. There is an edit on the page from an IP address which may be your telephone. Once you have an account you should only edit with this account regardless of whether it is with your telephone or computer. I hope that helps. Dom from Paris (talk) 16:23, 30 July 2019 (UTC)

Dab incubation[edit]

The incubation of Storm surge (disambiguation) was pretty ridiculous. It was a 30 second fix. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 10:28, 31 July 2019 (UTC)

Hi @Headbomb: It's a shame you fixed it yourself to be perfectly honest because it defeated the point of why I moved it and left a message on the user's talk page to say it didn't meet the MOS. The aim was paedagogic. It's a case of give a man a fish and he'll eat for one day teach him to use a rod and he'll feed himself for the rest of his life (or rather show him where to find instructions on rod-use). This editor has been here since 2008 and is still creating crappy DAB pages. Had he been a newbie I would have done what you did and explain it to him (I don't know if you did this or not). As per WP:NPP Reviewers are not obligated to mentor new users or complete their articles but if you look at my edit history you will see that I do often fix the errors but this time I was annoyed that an editor with more than 30k edits and 11 years experience would stick this mess in main space. Hope this shows you why I do not agree with the "pretty ridiculous" label. In the future please don't hesitate to come here first and ask why I carried out certain actions rather than calling me out. cheers and happy editing. --Dom from Paris (talk) 14:15, 31 July 2019 (UTC)

Jovan Milic Draft[edit]

Dear Mr Domdeparis,

Deletion reviews[edit]

Dear Mr Domdeparis, most high and esteemed Wiki leader: Will you take another look the deletion notes for Karen Jackman Ashton and Sahar Qumsiyeh. I took your advice and added more information. I believe there are some good references and a coherent article. Fullrabb (talk) 03:38, 1 August 2019 (UTC)FullRabb

Hi @Fullrabb: the place to address this is on the deletion discussion pages themselves. Dom from Paris (talk) 06:37, 4 August 2019 (UTC)

Frustrated Wiki user here. I have seen both articles Karen Jackman Ashton and Sahar Qumsiyeh deleted today after only a couple days or review. What is interesting to me is that only a handful of people weighed in and all were men. If I'm working to make Wikipedia more inclusive of women, why do men get to be the gatekeepers. And their arguments were curious. 'She was only on the board of a community college not a real university'. 'Her storytelling festival isn't a bid deal'. And many of my references for both articles were not related to the LDS Church as they both claimed. Please help me understand. And how might I challenge the decision?

HOW CAN I[edit]

Hi, how can i add my idea to Wikipedia:WikiProject Deletion sorting/Turkey Kim09mim (talk) 14:46, 7 August 2019 (UTC)

@Kim09mim: hi before I answer your question, I need to know if are you using several accounts? It looks like you are also using User:Mm08jimmy and User:Meyar09micheal. This is called sock puppetry and absolutely forbidden. --Dom from Paris (talk) 16:14, 7 August 2019 (UTC)
my brothers use those accounts Kim09mim (talk) 16:35, 7 August 2019 (UTC)
My brothers, some to contribute and some to ask questions like me Kim09mim (talk) 16:36, 7 August 2019 (UTC)
If you say don’t, we will don’t use Kim09mim (talk) 16:47, 7 August 2019 (UTC)
This is what is known as meatpuppetry as you are all working towards a common goal and have edited the same article. I would suggest just one of you edit this subject because in a sockpuppet investigation if you use the same computer it will seem like you are sockpuppets of the same user. That said could you explain what you mean by "how can i add my idea to Wikipedia:WikiProject Deletion sorting/Turkey" --Dom from Paris (talk) 16:56, 7 August 2019 (UTC)

Joaquín Bondoni deletion[edit]

Hi, I just put the sources in the article Joaquín Bondoni, I don't know how the removal process works so I write here, I hope you can remove the tag, I don't know if I can do it. Carinitos5 (talk) 09:52, 13 August 2019 (UTC)

Frndly TV deletion[edit]

I put a contested deletion on the talk section of this article. If you have a chance, please take a look at my reasons why. I hope this is helpful to clearup any concerns. Thanks! Msw1002 (talk) 06:55, 15 August 2019 (UTC)

Please read WP:OTHERSTUFFEXISTS to understand why your reasons not to delete are not valid. Dom from Paris (talk) 07:01, 15 August 2019 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for your reviewing of my contributions. If you feel that Radio France Bleu stations are not notable for English Wikipedia, is it worth reviewing {{Radio France}} template? Liverpoolpics (talk) 11:06, 16 August 2019 (UTC)

Hi @Liverpoolpics: earlier this month I nominated a similar page for deletion Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Energy Stuttgart as it did not meet the WP:NRADIO criteria. Local versions of a national radio station that have identical programming will invariably fail the criteria. Please do not create these pages unless you have enough sources to show they meet WP:NORG. Dom from Paris (talk) 11:13, 16 August 2019 (UTC)


Our conversations are private (more or less), how does that affect the English Wikipedia in any way? We contribute to pages in English, I don't see the issue. It would be unnatural to send texts in English, we both speak Romanian.8Dodo8 (talk · contribs) 12:21, 16 August 2019 (UTC)

Hi @8Dodo8: contrary to a popular misconception user talk pages are not private pages and all conversations there are public. these messages are not private texts. When they concern editing on wikipedia it is even more important. As per WP:SPEAKENGLISH unless you are incapable of expressing what you want to say in English then there is no reason to use another language or you should provide a translation. As per WP:OWNTALK User talk pages must serve their primary purpose, which is to make communication and collaboration among editors easier. Editors who refuse to use their talk page for these purposes are violating the spirit of the talk page guidelines, and are not acting collaboratively. If you persist in using another language than English then this shows a lack of collaboration because an editor that wishes to discuss a matter with you will have to use a translator to see if this topic is already being discussed. Alternatively you can use your Romanian talk page [[1]] to communicate in Romanian. I hope you understand. --Dom from Paris (talk) 12:38, 16 August 2019 (UTC)

En français ![edit]

Bonjour cher monsieur de Bristol.

Je suppose que je n’ai pas besoin de traduire (mais je pourrais le faire, en vous imposant mon broken English ou mes fautes de preterite). Vous semblez très bien parler français. Je m’intéresse à des tas de choses depuis 15 ans sur Wikipédia et, parfois, mes créations (des ébauches le plus souvent car je suis occupé) sont très courtes, voire très simples. Cependant je n’accepte pas facilement qu’un autre contributeur (dont je n’ai pas souvenir, comme interaction majeure, je peux me tromper, il s’en passe des choses en 15 ans…) sans même me prévenir qualifie un article de « undersourced » et le déplace tout de go, parmi les drafts. Bien entendu votre intervention remarquée a (indirectement) contribué à améliorer l’ébauche en question et depuis ce jour Nedim Čović, un assez obscur athlète bosnien est rétabli comme un article à part entière (parfois il faut attendre 4 mois ou plus pour que cela arrive, plus de 4.000 articles sont en souffrance. Il n’est pas resté bien longtemps au purgatoire… Vous pensez sûrement avoir bien fait. Peut-être que oui. Moi je pense surtout qu’avec de telles mauvaises manières vis-à-vis d’un autre contributeur, votre capital de sympathie risque d’en souffrir. Ce qui compte est que je peux désormais oublier le recordman bosnien des 100 m et 200 m de 2010, jusqu’à ce qu’un autre jour ces records soient battus par des sprinteurs plus rapides que lui. Merci néanmoins de votre attention. Je vous prie de me répondre ICI 👈 dans la langue que vous voulez. Cordialement--Arorae (talk) 14:17, 17 August 2019 (UTC)

@Arorae: je préfère ne pas utiliser deux pages de discussion pour une seule conversation donc je vais vous répondre ici. Vous avez l'air d'être vexé mais il ne le faut pas. L'article que vous avez créé ne démontrait pas que le sujet soit notable selon WP:NTRACK donc je l'ai déplacé en conformité avec WP:DRAFTIFY. Pour éviter ce genre de désagrément lisez bien les critères de notabilité pour vos articles et assurez-vous d'avoir fourni les références adéquates avant de publier. Si l'article n'est pas encore prêt vous pouvez utiliser votre bac à sable avant de le publier. Je ne cherche pas à avoir ou maintenir un capital de sympathie avec qui que ce soit mais simplement de travailler pour le bien de l'encyclopédie dans le respect de chacun. Mes actions étaient conformes aux règles et bons pratiques donc si vous les prenez pour des mauvaises manières malheureusement je ne peux rien pour vous.
Hi you seem to be upset but there really is no reason to be. The article that you wrote did not show that the subject met the notability criteria as per WP:NTRACK so I moved it to draft space as per WP:DRAFTIFY. To avoid this kind of thing in the future please ensure that you read the notability criteria for the subject that you writing on and make sure you add the required to sources to show it meets them before publishing. If the article is not ready please use your sandbox before publishing. I am not trying to be popular or maintain popularity but I am working to improve the encyclopedia in a respectful manner. My actions are in accordance with policy and guidelines so I'm afraid if you consider them to be impolite I am afraid I can't really help you there. Happy editing. Dom from Paris (talk) 14:43, 17 August 2019 (UTC)
@Aurore: I checked out the edit history again to try and understand why you seem so upset and I believe I could have waited longer before moving it to see if you were going to add the information to show he met WP:NTRACK and for that I apologise. That said you do not have to wait for someone to review an article in draft space if you believe it is ready for main space as an auto conformed user you can move it back yourself. If you do so before it is ready then you run the risk of it being nominated for deletion though. Dom from Paris (talk) 07:15, 18 August 2019 (UTC)

Recent redirect edit[edit]

Hi, thanks for your reviewing my page, but can you please explain why the page "United Alive in Madrid" was redirected and were can I find it? Your redirect leads to the band's discography page but the specific page created by me is deleted or does not exist. As I spend some time creating the page and both sources and references were used please explain this. Mpaoxi (talk) 09:23, 19 August 2019 (UTC)

@Mpaoxi: Hi the page is still there but I have replaced the content with a redirect to the discography page as an alternative to deletion because there was nothing that showed it met WP:NALBUM. The content is maintained in the page's history so if you have read the notability guidelines and found more sources to show that the album meets the guidelines you can restore an old version and add the sources and update. Please be advised that if it doesn't meet the guidelines it will probably be nominated for deletion. Cheers Dom from Paris (talk) 06:42, 19 August 2019 (UTC)

{{Senior Editor}} For your work on Andy Auld and David MorganWm335td (talk) 20:10, 21 August 2019 (UTC)

@Wm335td: you're welcome. I learnt a lot writing it. I remember the conflict vividly, I was 14 at the time and was on an exchange trip to Germany, we were doing a tour of Hamburg harbour and the guide said "Ah this will interest you English pupils that is an Argentinian ship and your country declared war on Argentina this morning"! Very matter of fact are the Germans!!! (I Nowikied the senior editor template because I think you meant to do something else). Cheers --Dom from Paris (talk) 20:30, 21 August 2019 (UTC)

Sockpuppet investigation[edit]

An editor has opened an investigation into sockpuppetry by you. Sockpuppetry is the use of more than one Wikipedia account in a manner that contravenes community policy. The investigation is being held at Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Domdeparis, where the editor who opened the investigation has presented their evidence. Please make sure you make yourself familiar with the guide to responding to investigations, and then feel free to offer your own evidence or to submit comments that you wish to be considered by the Wikipedia administrator who decides the result of the investigation. If you have been using multiple accounts (in a manner contrary to Wikipedia policy), please go to the investigation page and verify that now. Leniency is usually shown to those who promise not to do so again, or who did so unwittingly, but the abuse of multiple accounts is taken very seriously by the Wikipedia community.

 Masum Ibn Musa  Conversation 07:04, 23 August 2019 (UTC)

@Masum Ibn Musa: thanks for opening the investigation into me it was an enriching experience as I have personally opened a number of investigations myself most were proved to be true but not all and it was interesting to see it from the other angle. Also it brings into perspective this comment (that I have taken on board) from User:Bbb23 when closing one that I started he stated In the future, if you file a report at SPI without evidence that I see, it will be summarily closed. And the word "duck" does not substitute for diffs.
Anyway no hard feelings on my part just next time you might want to ask yourself "am I doing this because I'm annoyed by another editor's actions or is it based on something real." Just because 2 editors agree that an article is not notable does not make them in cahoots or the same person. Take the time to look at their editing history (I've been here for over 5 years and User:HighKing for 13 years) and their rights, we are both patrollers (as you are too) and very active in AFD so we're going to come across each other there. You might also want to read this Wikipedia:Signs of sock puppetry.
Talking about patrolling I remember unreviewing an article that you reviewed so I took the liberty of checking out some of the articles you marked as reviewed and I think you need to read Wikipedia:New pages patrol and especially the flow chart. An article that does not have at least 2 sources in independent RS should be tagged as needing more references and these weren't and still aren't Karl Platt, Ano Doliana Mohun Bagan A.C. (youth). Please take more care in the future. --Dom from Paris (talk) 16:59, 23 August 2019 (UTC)

David Morgan (pilot) -- Did You Know[edit]

Hi, thank you for writing David Morgan (pilot), it is very interesting. Have you considered nominating it for WP:Did you know? It looks eligible to me. The nomination would need to be within the next couple of days at the latest I think. MPS1992 (talk) 17:08, 24 August 2019 (UTC)

Thanks @MPS1992: I've never done a did you know. I'll have a look at the link. Dom from Paris (talk) 18:19, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
@MPS1992: do you think that as of March 2019 he was last British pilot to have shot down an enemy aircraft in a dogfight would be a good hook? Dom from Paris (talk) 18:23, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
Yes. We might be able to get away with "is the most recent British pilot to have...". Maybe! MPS1992 (talk) 18:36, 24 August 2019 (UTC)

Andy Auld (pilot)[edit]

I undid your edit. The source includes: "The British Amphibious Task Force was frantically offloading landing forces in San Carlos Water. Above at 10,000 feet, Andy Auld's Sea Harriers were directed by shipborne controllers onto four bogies streaking for the landing ships. Auld dove on the formation and within seconds fired both of his Sidewinder missiles, destroying two Argentine Daggers. As he attempted a gun solution on a third Dagger, it was hit by a missile fired by his wingman. The fourth aircraft jettisoned its bombs and headed home. Recognized for his skill and combat leadership in the Falklands War, Lieutenant Commander Auld was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross." It was in the sidebar, which explains how you missed it. 7&6=thirteen () 12:28, 25 August 2019 (UTC)

Okay. I tried nice.
Stop WP:Edit warring when your factual assertion is demonstrably wrong. 7&6=thirteen () 12:36, 25 August 2019 (UTC)
User:7&6=thirteen You should not open a discussion about an edit conflict and immediately revert without giving the other editor the time to explain why they edited in that way this is disloyal. I will now explain why I tagged this as failed verification. I did not miss the side bar at all but being recognised for his skill and combat leadership does not equate to "He played an important role in making the Sea Harrier operational in the Royal Navy, and was instrumental in its success in the Falklands War" this is without a shadow of a doubt WP:OR as other editors have remarked in the deletion discussion. This phrase was added after the discussion was opened and referenced. I checked the reference and it does not support the phrase. If you have another that does please use it and let me know I will decide if I agree or not. --Dom from Paris (talk) 12:45, 25 August 2019 (UTC)
I replied on the article talk page. WP:3RR. Cheers. 7&6=thirteen () 15:09, 25 August 2019 (UTC)
