Hello there![edit]

I have noticed you participate in several AfD's and I think you would be a great help for this project. JayJayWhat did I do? 18:12, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for July 27[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Hector Burton, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Lake Wilson. 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.

What's a good email address to reach you at? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.84.251.218 (talk) 06:54, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

None. I can be reached here. duffbeerforme (talk) 07:03, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

Ok. Could you please stop putting that "delete" thing on the Seven Factor page. I think you're mistaken in your reasons given. And would appreciate if you stop vandalizing the page with it — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.84.251.218 (talk) 23:36, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

Leave it on there. It should stay till tha afd is properly closed. If you think it's a mistake comment at the afd, but remember Wikipedia is not here for self promotion. duffbeerforme (talk) 23:48, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

I disagree with user Duffbeerforme with their claim of Seven Factor in not notable and should be deleted for "being best known as front man for non notable band". 1st, the band being reffered to as Non Notable, was notable. their wiki page was deleted due to act of vandalism...this entire proposal to delete seems to be based off of that one aspect of an obviously multi level career. 2nd. Seven Factor was also associated with notable bands such as Crossbreed ( artemis records) and 16VOLT ( METROPOLIS RECORDS) Links to these bands are on the wiki page. 3rd. Seven Factor is the resident engineer at the world famous KDS STUDIOS in Orlando Florida,Formally transcon studios which launched such bands as NSYNC and the backstreet boys. Eminem has done his last 3 albums in this studio. His clients in this studio include some of the top selling artists on the billboard charts past and present. 4th. As a solo artists he has done remixes for notable bands Such as Tweaker, and Psyclon Nine.. and has a FACEBOOK VERIFIED Facebook page of just under 60,000 followers. 5th.As a producer and engineer he works closely and collaborates on projects with grammy and platinum sales award winning artists such as Chris Vrenna( Nine Inch Nails. Marilyn Manson, Knarles Barkley, Tweaker,) and Sara Lee Lucas( original Drummer for Marilyn Manson) 5th. As a multi media artists Seven Factor has done Video woe for such Notable bands as KMFDM, and CombiChrist... as well as mobile apps on the iTunes and android platform for Combichrist. It is obvious that Seven Factor has a long lasting, and very well established career in the music industry in many aspects of the filed , with many different bands .. not just 1 that was mistakenly deemed " not notable" — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.84.251.218 (talk) 04:08, 12 August 2014 (UTC)


hey Man, ONce again you got your facts wrong on the Seven Factor wiki page.. do you have some personal issue that is making you want that page deleted?.. you seem to be totally disregarding all the facts involved and ignoring the given reasons not to delete it.. and giving false information as to why it should be deleted.. whats the deal? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2602:304:10F8:7FD9:D69A:20FF:FE61:9DF5 (talk) 19:55, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

The Hype Magazine AFD[edit]

Thank you for fixing the name of The Hype Magazine. The magazine IS a print outlet available in retail stores, distributed by Kable Distribution Services. The magazine DOES advertise its services for both advertising and promotional placements, which is standard practice in the entertainment magazine business. While many such as Vibe, XXL, Source, etc., are not so aggressive as The Hype Magazine, the do have media kits which provide information on how to obtain, promotional, featured article services and advert placements both on their online and print magazine versions. The Hype Magazine is not doing anything different except being more aggressive via its social media. Multiple editors have worked on this page AND it was denied on first attempt via the articles for creation process. Upon editing according to the requirements, this magazine was approved for inclusion and the various citations and awards while not significant to those outside the entertainment industry, makes the magazine notable within its industry for certain. Also, when has a magazine or its publisher been honored by a major city council outside of its HOME area for its impact as a news outlet AND a growing national brand. I would like to put up the City Council of Atlanta proclamation on the page, but the picture is stored in Flickr and I have been told that Flickr is not an acceptable resource...I am open to any guidance as this was my first article under the Magazine Wiki Project. Lastly, it's not often that magazines gain outside coverage on them by other outlets...seems to be a fear there.Chastized (talk) 16:37, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

A beer for you![edit]

Export hell seidel steiner.png I thoroughly appreciated your AfD on Vaporous_hyperoxia_therapy. Ignore all rules! I feel like I'm closer to reaching enlightenment. Gccwang (talk) 08:47, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

Chastized[edit]

Is there some reason you are hunting down my articles? Really you are beginning to appear more as a vandal than an insightful editor. What is the REAL problem? I create pages via the AFC process and you attack it, I create free-hand articles and you attack them. If this is something personal I wish you would man/woman up and say what's REALLY on your mind and stop harassing my pages. I will join with the others who are calling you a vandal and complaining to the admins...I will work to get you banned.Chastized (talk) 14:12, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

The problem is you're a shill and you are using Wikipedia for promotion. What's your connection to Jerry Doby? Have you declared your paid advocacy? duffbeerforme (talk) 08:10, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

I am not a "shill" and I have not connection to Jerry Doby. I am not an "advocate" for ANYONE and you will notice by me contributions that I edit multiple different pages. The magazine article on The Hype Magazine was created using the AFC template and ANOTHER EDITOR moved it into article space, not me. It was declined at first as you will notice and then I made the edits required to make it wiki worthy. I DO make mistakes in creating pages or editing pages and I appreciate other editors that help make me a better editor however, I do not like feeling as if I am being attacked. If you want to mentor me so that my contributions are better, I will accept that however don't hunt me down.Chastized (talk) 16:14, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

The Joshes[edit]

Think you are wrong with your move. Wouldn't have a clue about their birthyears, anyone who plays fantasy football (hundred of thousands of people) knows their middle initials. The-Pope (talk) 14:53, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

The-Pope. Hi your holiness. How article naming works. The title of the article should be the name they are best known as. For Sydney's Josh most reports call him Josh, not Josh P, eg Sydney Swans' Josh Kennedy says AFL grand final clash against Hawthorn will be 'a great battle' and Josh Kennedy is used to a battle of allegiances when his Sydney Swans come up against Hawthorn (GNews hits Josh pages vs Josh P 4). So is should be titled as Josh Kennedy. Same with the other Josh. Since that name is shared we need to add something else to separate the two. We add that after the main title and in brackets. We don't change the main title. If you don't like dates, any suggestion of something else.
I'm just as familiar with the naming rules as anyone here. GHits are fantastic to prove anything you want. 91000 hits for Josh P. Kennedy too. 50000 for Josh J. Because there are two current players, they are known in lots of non-news sources with the middle initial (news sources can have full sentences to provide club-context, web lists/stats pages and our titles can't, so are a better gauge of how to succinctly separate them). And anyhow, the new (year or so old) dab naming guidelines now say that we should insert a comma between football and born. The-Pope (talk) 01:16, 27 September 2014 (UTC)
Here is an example from an official AFL account from today's Grand Final, where Josh P is the only player listed with a middle initial. https://twitter.com/AFLPlayerRating/status/515770442666090496 The-Pope (talk) 08:18, 27 September 2014 (UTC)
Let's look at Sydney's Josh. AFL Josh Kennedy, Sydney Josh Kennedy, afltables Josh Kennedy, The Age Josh Kennedy, The Australian Josh Kennedy, Herald Sun Josh Kennedy, Sydney Morning Herald Josh Kennedy, ABC Josh Kennedy. More often than not it's Josh Kennedy. That's what he's mostly called. That's what the title should be. duffbeerforme (talk) 12:44, 28 September 2014 (UTC)
Josh Kennedy 287,000. Josh Kennedy Sydney 141,000, Josh P Kennedy 9,820. Josh J Kennedy 4,770. What was your point? duffbeerforme (talk) 12:52, 28 September 2014 (UTC)
My point is not that Josh P Kennedy is the most common, but that it isn't uncommon, and where team context isn't possible, it is common. Your first two examples are examples of this, both refer to Sydney in the article title. Bottom line is you've changed it from some users knowing what the article name night be (fantasy football players), to virtually no one outside his immediate family knowing what the article name would be, as the date of birth is less known than the middle initial. And you haven't fixed the comma issue yet either. The-Pope (talk) 01:02, 29 September 2014 (UTC)
Josh Kennedy is the most common so that should be the title. If you don't like the disambiguation then suggest another. Teams would be the one known by the largest numbers but that appears frowned upon.
Josh P. is not uncommon so should be used as a redirect.
Where would these people not know? In a diambiguation page, eg Josh Kennedy, it lists the teams so people know from there. If they are searchong for Josh P. Kennedy then that name will appear in the search box so no confusion there. In article the name should be piped so there is no confusion from the disambiguation there. Context or team should identify them in such places, eg 2014 Brownlow Medal shows Sydney Swans' Josh Kennedy and Josh Kennedy (Sydney). Where team context isn't possible (anywhere?), pipe it from Josh P. There should not be anywhere where either version can cause confusion. duffbeerforme (talk) 12:54, 29 September 2014 (UTC)

Mr Don Treader[edit]

User:Dontreader should stop acting like a colossal dick and should shut the fuck up about me. duffbeerforme (talk) 12:12, 11 October 2014 (UTC)

Duffbeerforme, your comment is uncivil and it therefore constitutes a violation of Wikipedia's code of conduct, specifically because it contains profanity. I will not reply to any further messages. Dontreader (talk) 21:10, 11 October 2014 (UTC)
So after a plethora of posts from you where attack, insult, demean, belittle and lie about others, In short acting like a whiney cunt, you are suddenly concerned about civility because of one little f word? Go away and shut the fuck up about me.duffbeerforme (talk) 11:49, 14 October 2014 (UTC)
All right, Duff, I'm sorry for mentioning you. I do forget things but I will honestly try not to make that mistake again, unless the purpose of mentioning you is either neutral or positive. However, I have sincerely worked hard to become consistently civil on Wikipedia instead of trying to give certain people what I think they deserve. That's history. It was wrong. Besides, it badly damaged my health.
Since we coexist here on Wikipedia, I think it's best to not hold grudges, which is why as a goodwill gesture I am humbly requesting your help. You see, in my opinion (and based on things that you have said about promotional material), I think something very deceitful is taking place in the Marshall W. Mason article. I have substantially improved the references but when I removed an inappropriate external link, an editor got upset, reverted my edit, and defended the external link on the talk page of the article. I think it's great to try to resolve issues on the talk page, but he should have waited to see how the discussion ended before reverting my edit. After all, even though many Wikipedians have much more experience than I do, this guy is a newbie. He's upset that soon I reverted his own reversion. I then spent quite some time showing him on his talk page how to properly cite sources but he didn't even thank me. Anyway, I detected in that article what seems to be a clear violation of the rules, but I don't know how to deal with it, plus if I bring it up he will think I have something personal against him since he's already upset with me.
Here's the problem. Although a picture in the article was deleted today, the other picture seems equally wrong to use in the article. It's the picture of a book Marshall W. Mason wrote. Notice that it's being used under Fair Use. The image uploader (same editor as before) stated: "The image is used as the primary means of visual identification of the topic discussed in the article." But Duff, how can that be an honest argument? The article is about Marshall W. Mason, not about his book. The only reference to the book that I can find in the article merely says "He is the author of the 2007 book Creating Life On Stage: A Director's Approach to Working with Actors." There is no discussion about "the topic" in the article, which he is deceitfully claiming, in my opinion. Now, if the article was about his book, then fine, but that's not the case. What this contributor did does not seem to comply with Fair Use, which states (on the same page where he made that false statement) "It is believed that the use of low-resolution images of book covers to illustrate an article discussing the book in question qualifies as fair use under United States copyright law. Other use of this image, on Wikipedia or elsewhere, might be copyright infringement."
So, do you agree that what he did was wrong? The way I see it, the image of the book is in the article merely to promote sales. But I don't know how to deal with this type of situation, plus as I said, that editor is already very upset with me. If you could help, I would be very grateful, and hopefully we could cooperate in the future as well. Dontreader (talk) 20:19, 19 October 2014 (UTC)
P.S. I've been reading WP:NFCCP and I fail to see how the inclusion of the image meets criterion 8:
"Contextual significance. Non-free content is used only if its presence would significantly increase readers' understanding of the article topic, and its omission would be detrimental to that understanding."
Please ping me whenever you've had a chance to analyze the situation. Thanks... Dontreader (talk) 22:19, 19 October 2014 (UTC)
Thanks Duff. Perhaps the thing that bothers me the most on Wikipedia is when I see people who either upload a picture, claiming that it's theirs (when that's a complete lie), or they upload a non-free picture using a totally dishonest free use rationale, thinking they will get away with it. There should be severe consequences, like a three-month ban, at least, in my opinion. Besides, at Commons you have to wait around two months to get a picture approved when a declaration of consent is involved, and to some degree that's because the OTRS team are spending so much time tracking down copyright violations. Anyway, I see that the book cover image is gone, so once again thank you very much for your help. Dontreader (talk) 16:59, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

Requesting your thoughts on an AfD discussion[edit]

Hello Duff,

I just nominated Aceto (album) for deletion. If you have a moment, I would be very grateful if you could participate in the discussion to reach consensus one way or the other. Thanks, and have a nice day... Dontreader (talk) 01:51, 2 November 2014 (UTC)

Thanks a lot for voting in the AfD discussion. It's very frustrating when I go through the trouble of opening an AfD and then no one shows up to vote, which happened with Marcelo Monte, but that article was deleted anyway. There seems to be a guy with two accounts, as "Flavio Teixeira Prado" and "Mathias karl estress", who created the Marcelo Monte article (a racing driver from Brazil). He uploaded two pictures for the article, claiming that they were his own work, but one was found on the Internet, belonging to someone else, so it was deleted. But then he uploaded it again, I caught him, reported him, and it was deleted a second time. The other picture is gone too, after this discussion, which began after some research that I showed to a guy at Commons. But the story doesn't end there. This dishonest person was saying that Marcelo Monte deserved an article because he had raced in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1984. I looked at the 1984 Le Mans article, and sure enough, Marcelo Monte showed up as one of the drivers, but later I discovered this, and this. Now how bad is that???
Anyway, Duff, if you create or participate in an AfD discussion and few people show up, just let me know on my talk page, and I'll do my best to help reach consensus. Please choose a musician or a band for me (if you want to) since I mostly edit articles of that sort. Thanks again for your help, and have a great day. Dontreader (talk) 06:14, 13 November 2014 (UTC)

A beer for you![edit]

Export hell seidel steiner.png Many thanks, Duff, for redirecting five album articles that are on Wikipedia for no reason other than to try to increase the artist's sales. Good job detecting the bad chart, too. Cheers! Dontreader (talk) 20:16, 16 November 2014 (UTC)

List of adult video games[edit]

Hi Duffbeerforme: List of adult video games and its talk page have been deleted to allow for your proposed page move of List of pornographic video games and its talk page to this title. NorthAmerica1000 20:07, 25 November 2014 (UTC)

A beer for you![edit]

Export hell seidel steiner.png There is no such thing as too much beer! This time around the Spelled Moon article was deleted. I celebrate your perseverance. I came across that AfD discussion by chance, and I didn't even notice that you had proposed its deletion until I had studied it a bit. I did my best. The rules must be enforced. Cheers!

Why did you delete information on the Figgkidd page?

going to answer?

If you want an answer you shouldn't hide your question at the top. Post new messages at the bottom and sign your posts.

'nother puppet?[edit]

Interest by puppets and SPAs sure makes it difficult to neutrally judge a topic. this guy posted on my talk page.... not something usually done as a first edit by a person "New to Wikipedia. Anxious to learn. Page coming soon." Sure, I'm willing to argue points of sources with you and whether of not the GNG or CREATIVE may or may not be met, but not when encouraged to do so by a possible sock or meat puppet. Casts a bad light on even the strongest arguments. :( Schmidt, Michael Q. 21:18, 18 January 2015 (UTC)

More than likely another puppet. duffbeerforme (talk) 02:45, 20 January 2015 (UTC)
Hmmm... saw your comment at the AfD discussion where I posted and just wanted to say that a) I may have come across more snarky than I intended, so a quick mea culpa on that, and b) it looks like you and I share an ability to notice sockpuppets - who are getting notoriously good at things like IP-hopping and evading detection other that "I know darn well this isn't a new user..." I was pretty active dealing with this one, which I think has re-emerged but it's been difficult to determine its extent. Anyway, noticed on the above one you and Michael Q are looking at, when you check contribs, the user above has a talk page design very, very similar to this one. Could just be imitation as a form of flattery, or not. Just FWIW. Montanabw(talk) 22:12, 18 April 2015 (UTC)

DRV for Louisiana State University rugby[edit]

Hey, Duff. The DRV has been closed as "no consensus" -- which is what should have happened. I do not intend to re-nominate the article for AfD, and I do not think it would be productive if you did so, either. Frankly, I never much cared whether we deleted or kept this particular article about an admittedly obscure college club team. My reason for participating in the discussion was to clarify the notability guidelines applicable to college rugby club teams (in fact, the same guidelines that are applicable to NCAA varsity teams: WP:GNG and WP:ORG), and that a WikiProject's members cannot simply write their own notability guidelines in contravention of the actual guidelines without seeking consensus from the wider Wikipedia community. Hopefully, those points have been made -- and understood by the WP:Rugby Union guys. Given the addition of several independent sources to the article by Barry, the article is now close to satisfying the GNG/ORG standard with significant coverage in multiple, independent, reliable sources. It's certainly close enough that I don't feel compelled to attempt to delete it via AfD. That said, I have watch-listed Wikipedia:WikiProject Deletion sorting/Rugby union, the AfD listing for rugby-related articles, and I will participate in future rugby AfDs to make sure that they are held to the same standard as other sports team articles on Wikipedia. Cheers. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 08:58, 14 May 2015 (UTC)
