Tommi Ohrner[edit]

Hi there. I see you've started a page for Tommi Ohrner. I had wanted to start a page for him, but I'm an American Wikipedia editor and my German isn't very good. If you are German or if you are fluent in German and know of reliable sources about his life and career, please add the information and sources to the new page you've created, or you can add the information and links to this talk page (in English) and, between the two of us, I'm sure we could translate the information to add to his page. I'm afraid his page could be tagged for speedy deletion if we can't add more sources to verify his notability. Thank you --- Crakkerjakk (talk) 09:31, 30 October 2011 (UTC)

Merge proposal[edit]

I proposed here the merge of Golden Generation and Golden Team. I would appreciate a comment Fraere (talk) 12:33, 30 October 2011 (UTC)


You have new message/s Hello. You have a new message at Crakkerjakk's talk page.

Talk page archived[edit]

I just took a look at his page and saw that he archives manually by just copy/pasting, so I went ahead and archived your talk page. I left the original "Welcome" message and kept the threads for October (so you could continue any conversations that might not be finished), but everything from 2010 thru September 2011 is now archived. A box with the link is now located at the top of this talk page. I hope that helps. If not, let me know and we'll make sure you get what you want. --- Crakkerjakk (talk) 18:48, 30 October 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, I just noticed that your talk page went back to 2008, not 2010. The top message was from an editor who mistakenly put their message on top of your older messages, so I'll move the page to reflect that it's an archive of 2008 to 2011. Sorry about that. --- Crakkerjakk (talk) 18:51, 30 October 2011 (UTC)
Now moved to reflect the page archives messages from 2008 to 2011. --- Crakkerjakk (talk) 18:54, 30 October 2011 (UTC)

inre Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Life Begins for Andy Panda[edit]

With respects, your nomination rationale is not based upon policy nor guideline. While appreciating your concerns about an article being unsourced, topic notability is determined through availability of sources, and not their immediate citation within an article. In finding that multiple sources are readily available, and your concerns easily addressable, I began some steps myself to proactively address the addresable issues,[1] so I'm asking that you give serious consideration to a withdrawal of your nomination. Cheers, Schmidt, MICHAEL Q. 02:29, 24 November 2011 (UTC)

Michael Woodford[edit]

Are you sure Woodford was born in Manchester, Connecticut, and that the city is in the UK? ;-) --Ohconfucius ¡digame! 01:29, 25 November 2011 (UTC)

Merger to List of Cheers episodes#ep207 is proposed. Feel free to improve the consensus. --George Ho (talk) 02:50, 29 April 2012 (UTC)

Why won't you ever insert a new category in alphabetical order?[edit]

It's not hard. --Niemti (talk) 14:20, 15 May 2012 (UTC)

And is it hard to write "Super Street Fighter IV" instead of "Streetfighter IV"? Whatever is "Streetfighter IV" anyway. Also, "the the five characters the five characters"? --Niemti (talk) 17:49, 20 May 2012 (UTC)

Crime Story[edit]

I have attempted to have the discussion on the Crime Story talk page I have contacted the editor personally. As you can clearly see my edits had legimate sources from the Los Angeles Times and DVD Talk [2]. It seems to me merly to spiteful editing for the sake of doing so. What else do you want me to do when you accuse me of not listening to advise. Dwanyewest (talk) 12:42, 30 May 2012 (UTC)

Context for the above: Dwanyewest, who appears to have a legitimate complaint, did not know where to go with that complaint, and posted the complaint several places where it was ignored or deleted (because it was in the wrong place). I gave him the following advice:
"Dwanyewest, first you need to attempt to resolve this at Talk:Crime Story (film). If that does not resolve the issue, see Wikipedia:Dispute resolution for instructions as to what to do next."
Thirty minutes later, Dwanyewest posted his complaint to Talk:Crime Story (film) - the right place. Here is my further advice for him:

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Dwanyewest, I see that you have now posted your complaint to Talk:Crime Story (film). That is the right place to try to resolve issues with Crime Story (film). As I wrote before, you need to give the talk page discussion a chance. If it doesn't result in the issue being solved, let me know and I will tell you what the next step is.

Meanwhile, I see that has been blocked for 24 hours for his disruptive editing at Crime Story (film), Full Metal Jacket, Lethal Weapon 4 and Big Show. This means two things for you: first, it means that you can go back to Crime Story (film) and make your edits without being allowed to interfere. I see that you have already done that. Second, it means that cannot edit Talk:Crime Story (film) either, so you will have to wait until the block expires to see whether you get a response.

I know that all of this must be very frustrating for you, and that it must seem like you are having trouble with a vandal and nobody is listening. You can reduce your frustration by following a few simple rules: First, any time you have a conflict with another editor, try to resolve the conflict on the talk page for the article where you are having trouble. Second, read Wikipedia:Dispute resolution so that you know what to do if discussing it on the talk page fails. --Guy Macon (talk) 17:10, 30 May 2012 (UTC)

It's pointless communicating with s/he is clearly a disruptive troll I am taking my complaint higher as this person seems to be disruptive for the sake of doing so! Dwanyewest (talk) 14:01, 31 May 2012 (UTC)
Why are you ignoring what I am telling you? "Taking your complaint higher" will do you no good unless you first try to resolve the issue at Talk:Crime Story (film). If you take your compaint elswhere before doing that, you will be told to go back and try to resolve the issue at Talk:Crime Story (film).
And please don't try to tell me that you tried and he did not respond. He can't respond while he is blocked. So far he got a 24-hour block, went right back to misbehaving, and immediately got a 48 hour block which s still active. If he doesn't stop his disruptive editing he will end up blocked indefinitely. The system is working. Please stop being so impatient and please stop WP:FORUMSHOPPING. --Guy Macon (talk) 19:34, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

Bare links[edit]

Stop adding bare link URLs to articles, and then adding the linkrot template to the refs section, as if you expect other editors to clean up after you. ---RepublicanJacobiteTheFortyFive 02:58, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

Cheers and Frasier task force[edit]

I have proposed one task force to cover Cheers and Frasier. Join in by clicking Wikipedia:WikiProject Council/Proposals/Cheers and Frasier task forces. --George Ho (talk) 03:49, 31 July 2012 (UTC)


This doesn't say individually about Lilith as much as Frasier and Lilith together. This is excessive, as I have already done that in Frasier Crane article. This has awards, but I've already done that in Frasier article. ....Really? Even so, look at Lucy Ricardo and Ricky Ricardo. More to discuss. --George Ho (talk) 04:55, 31 July 2012 (UTC)

This is trivial, as Frasier and Lilith are mentioned together already in both Frasier and Lilith articles. On the other hand, this might do. --George Ho (talk) 05:04, 31 July 2012 (UTC)
Only one article; the rest are struck out? Man, even that article could make Lilith Sternin belong to the upcoming List of Cheers characters (or Characters of Cheers). I'm sorry, but Lilith article could be either merged into Frasier article or renamed into Frasier Crane and Lilith Sternin. --George Ho (talk) 07:04, 31 July 2012 (UTC)

Changing scope of Lilith Sternin without merging?[edit]

I have proposed altering the scope of this article. Well, you can go to the talkpage to improve consensus. --George Ho (talk) 08:23, 14 August 2012 (UTC)

British Muslims for Secular Democracy[edit]

Dear Dwanyewest, I hope you are well. Your work on the page, British Muslims for Secular Democracy, has really improved it a lot. It's a credible page now. Thanks. Its central section still seems to be (or read like) a constitution or charter and it seems from the citations that BMSD generated a bit of media attention when it originated, but not much since then. If you know of any third-party sources for its activities / accomplishments during the last five years we could really strengthen the article and demonstrate notability. I'll search myself, but anything you can think of will be much appreciated. Thanks again. Best wishes, George Custer's Sabre (talk) 00:37, 16 August 2012 (UTC)

Hey, Dwanyewest, slow down a bit. Make sure they are properly referenced before popping them up as articles. Just sayin'. --Shirt58 (talk) 11:29, 29 October 2012 (UTC)

Do you think this has potential?[edit]

I can't remember if this subject has been brought up before. But do you think this article Prostitution in Ghana has potential to be expanded into a full solo article. Dwanyewest (talk) 22:43, 2 December 2012 (UTC)

Hi there Dwanyewest, I do remember when you brought this subject to me, and I do think it could have potential. How about if you can start the article in any way you can, then I will try my best to contribute to the article. MarkMysoe (talk) 22:55, 2 December 2012 (UTC)

Felix Dexter[edit]

Hi, Dwanyewest. Hope you don't mind me asking. What was your source for Felix Dexter's date of birth? The same date now appears in the Telegraph and Guardian obituaries, but they might well have got it from us ... The Guardian obituary, written by two colleagues, even says that they didn't know how old he was (so the date must have been added by an editor, perhaps after reading the Wikipedia page). I was just about to write an obituary elsewhere, so it would be really helpful. Thanks. Andrew Dalby 09:12, 26 October 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for your answer. No need to apologise -- I know how these things happen! Andrew Dalby 13:38, 26 October 2013 (UTC)

The criterion for speedy deletion is failure to indicate credible significance. Actual notability is a much higher standard, and not required to pass speedy. If you question the actual notability, use WP:AFD or WP:PROD. For Alexandar Komanov, I think a prod might be contested, so you should use AFD.See WP:CSD and WP:Deletion Policy.

Hi West,

It's been a long time! I hope life has been going well with you since we were last in touch. This page gives a good explanation of how to undertake an article split. The splits you undertook are called cut-and-paste moves, which are prohibited on Wikipedia because they result in multiple page histories existing for the same topic. Because the articles were so recently created, I recommend that the new pages be deleted.

Neelix (talk) 02:00, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

Hi West,
I've thought about the situation a bit more, and it's a difficult one to manage. Are you willing for the articles to be deleted? I don't have a grounds for speedy deletion unless you consent, and I think that's the most expedient way forward. The alternatives aren't great. In addition to the fact that cut-and-paste moves are time-consuming to deal with and can only be dealt with by administrators, I don't think these splits should have taken place. Many of the sources in the new articles aren't reliable (Buzzfeed,, etc.), and I don't think they justify individual articles. It seems like a lot of work to repair the cut-and-paste moves only to have the articles merged back into the list. What are your thoughts?
Neelix (talk) 02:18, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
Hi West,
Thanks for your understanding. Once I've finished the deletions, I'd be glad to contribute to the split discussion you initiated.
Neelix (talk)
Hi West,
I've deleted the articles per your approval, and responded to your comments on the list talk page. What was the issue with the Miyamoto Usagi article? Was there a split there that I'm not seeing?
Neelix (talk) 02:54, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
Hi West,
I can't find the original page history for the Miyamoto Usagi article; it may have been lost somehow. I think it's fine to leave it as it is, considering it happened so long ago and it looks like you had consensus for the split. Just be sure to avoid cutting and pasting in the future. Thanks again for contacting me about these splits.
Neelix (talk) 03:11, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
Hi West,
I responded at the discussion you started. To summarize, I think it better to work on improving the list itself rather than spinning off more articles about individual characters.

Copying within Wikipedia[edit]

Hello, Dwanyewest. I see you recently created the article Kick no Oni with content copied from Tadashi Sawamura. As was explained to you in 2014, you cannot split content from one article to another without providing attribution. Content on Wikipedia is not public domain; it is freely licensed, but that license has specific terms. If you do not meet the terms of the license, moving the content elsewhere creates a copyright infringement.

When moving within Wikipedia, all you have to do is put a direct link to the source article in your edit summary and, if content is extensive (as will be the case when establishing a new article), on the talk pages of both the source and destination article. Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia explains how this is done.

I have repaired this instance (as you can see in the article history and on the talk pages). Please do this in future when copying content from one space to another even if you intend to rewrite the content immediately, as it keeps the history of our articles legally compliant with license. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 12:43, 15 June 2015 (UTC)

I see you are still not adding the required attribution, as required under the terms of the CC-by-SA license. Please have a look at this edit summary as an example of how it is done. Please let me know if you still don't understand what to do or why we have to do it. Thanks, — Diannaa 🍁 (talk) 18:27, 1 January 2017 (UTC)

You need to start adding the legally required attribution. If you don't do it, your edit is a copyright violation. — Diannaa 🍁 (talk) 00:30, 20 January 2017 (UTC)

List of Gatchaman Fighter episodes[edit]

Hi, please familiarize yourself with our Manual of Style on writing about fiction, as well as the essay "How to write a plot summary". Your episode summaries are problematic for several reasons. A plot summary should be concise and only detail the main events, not a blow-by-blow detail of every minor thing that occurs. As they currently are, they are much too long and go into unnecessary details, defeating the point of a summary. You shouldn't just be rehashing everything that happens on the screen, but condensing the episodes to the major events.

A plot summary should also be written from an out-of-universe perspective. It should be written as if you were writing about the episode, not as if you were the characters. They should also follow neutral point of view without personal views or comments.

Most importantly: Your summaries likely do not meet fair use standards. You cannot gratuitously quote multiple lines of dialogue and also rephrase every detail including sound effects; you've effectively written your own script which is a derivative work of the original, violating copyright.

It is because of these reasons that I have reverted your editions wholesale. I would normally try to cut the details down to usable portions but unfortunately I am not familiar with the series and cannot make judgements on which portions are relevant. I would suggest starting from scratch while focusing on which points are the most important while aiming for between 400-700 words. Try to adhere to a neutral point of view, keeping in mind that you are writing about fiction, only quote characters when necessary, and do not add sound effects. Of course, your edits are still available in the history for your reference or if you should choose to cut those down instead. Please let me know if you have any questions and see Wikipedia:WikiProject_Anime_and_manga/Quality_articles#Featured_lists for examples of lists considered to be the highest quality on Wikipedia.

August 2016[edit]

Information icon Hello! Thank you for your recent contributions to Women's boxing. I did have one note for you. I am working on a maintenance project to clean up Category:Pages using infoboxes with thumbnail images. In the future, please do not use thumbnails when adding images to an infobox (see WP:INFOBOXIMAGE). What does this mean? Well in the infobox, when you specify the image you wish to use, instead of doing it like this:

|image=[[File:SomeImage.jpg|thumb|Some image caption]]

Instead just supply the name of the image. So in this case you can simply do:


There will then be a separate parameter for the image caption such as |caption=Some image caption. Please note that this is a generic form message I am leaving on your page because you recently added a thumbnail to an infobox. The specific parameters for the image and caption may be different for the infobox you are using! Please consult the Template page for the infobox being used to see better documentation. Thanks!! Zackmann08 (Talk to me/What I been doing) 15:33, 16 August 2016 (UTC)

Page Move or Page Merger[edit]

I was wondering if you could help out with a page merge or move. I'm not really the best at doing this, and see a lot of article end up in merger limbo. I feel like I should be bold, but not sure how to go about doing this. Thought maybe you'd be interested.

The articles for Efraim Diveroli and David Packouz (both who are subject of the same movie, War Dogs) are essentially exactly the same. Both men are notable for the exact same thing. I was wondering if you could get them merged or something, or moved to a page -- I don't know if each individual is in and of himself noteworthy, so much as what their company, AEY, did. Either way, articles should definitely be merged at the very least. Thanks! --FuzzyGopher (talk) 05:02, 30 August 2016 (UTC) =

October 2016[edit]

Information icon Please do not use thumbnails inside of infoboxes as you did to Baseball in the United States. Note that this is your second warning regarding this issue. Continuing to add thumbnails will be seen as disruptive editing. For more information please see WP:INFOBOXIMAGE. When adding an image, instead of doing:

|image=[[File:SomeImage.jpg|thumb|Some image caption]]

You can simply supply the name of the image. So in this case just do:

Bare URLs[edit]

Hey just a tip that would help you and others out and would be more productive. Instead of throwing up a maintenance tag on a highly visible page. Why not just have a tab open with The reFill tool and throw the article name in it and then fix it immediately, it only takes seconds. It doesn't always catch everything but it will generally catch enough to not have to throw up a tag. -DJSasso (talk) 18:04, 2 November 2016 (UTC)
