Women's football in San Marino[edit]

Why do you insist on adding an infobox to Women's football in San Marino? It contains many totally irrelevant links, like a link to the non-existant San Marino women's national football team, or to UEFA Women's Champions League where they never competed (and ar not likely to do so in the near future). An infobox should summarize info in the article, or at worst point to other relevant info about the subject of the article. This infobox does neither. Please don't add this infobox here (nor to other articles for countries without a national team). Fram (talk) 14:02, 3 April 2018 (UTC)

Staffordshire Bull Terrier[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Gareth Griffith-Jones.
I wanted to let you know that your two recent contributions to Staffordshire Bull Terrier have been undone because they are not constructive.
If you have any questions, you can ask me. Gareth Griffith‑Jones The Welsh Buzzard 15:42, 22 September 2018 (UTC)

Gareth Griffith-Jones I have added sources to my previous edit. Dwanyewest (talk) 11:25, 24 September 2018 (UTC)
Thank you. I have copy-edited it to read,
In March 2018, Staffordshire Police took two-year-old Cooper, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier, from an RSPCA animal centre in Taunton for training. If successful he would be the first police dog of this breed in the UK.
Do you know how his trainng went?Gareth Griffith‑Jones The Welsh Buzzard 09:07, 25 September 2018 (UTC)
Gareth Griffith-Jones Cooper eventually became qualified as a police dog. see the sources here [1][2][3]Dwanyewest (talk) 13:12, 26 September 2018 (UTC)
They are great—I have added all three to the section. Thanks. Gareth Griffith‑Jones The Welsh Buzzard 15:34, 26 September 2018 (UTC)

Merger requests[edit]

Hi Dwanyewest, could you please be a bit more specific about your recent merger requests? King Hiss (MOTU) already has its own article, so merging King Hiss wouldn't achieve anything, while Indian bull terrier doesn't exist anyway, so there is nothing to merge. Richard3120 (talk) 20:21, 25 September 2018 (UTC)

Update: an IP has marked both requests as "done" because there appeared to be no merges to be performed. Richard3120 (talk) 12:36, 26 September 2018 (UTC)

Richard3120 What is the section for asking redirecting articles that is what I was trying to do King Hsss still redirects to List of Masters of the Universe characters instead to King Hiss (MOTU). Indian Bull Terrier as a search item I wish to redirected to Gull Terr. Dwanyewest (talk) 13:42, 26 September 2018 (UTC)
Ah, in that case, you want WP:RFD – redirects for discussion, in order to get the redirect targets changed. Richard3120 (talk) 13:47, 26 September 2018 (UTC)

Poor unattributed translation deleted[edit]

I have deleted Elfriede Florin as a very poor unattributed translation of this. Wikipedia isn't a reliable source to start with, but if you know what you are doing, it can be the basis for an enwiki article. However, when you apparently don't understand the language you are translating from (or pay very, very little attention to what you are doing if you did understand it), you are producing something which is considerably worse than what you started with. If you add that to the lack of attribution, without which this was an unacceptable case of plagiarism, and we end up with a page we can do without.

Please, in the future, both attribute your source correctly, and even more importantly don't introduce factual errors into enwiki. Fram (talk) 10:03, 2 October 2018 (UTC)

(talk) is this an acceptable third person source.? [4] Dwanyewest (talk) 13:43, 2 October 2018 (UTC)
I think so, yes. McFarland is a respectable publisher. Fram (talk) 13:52, 2 October 2018 (UTC)

If I use a basic article and just state she was an actress who starred in Les Misérables (1958 film).Dwanyewest (talk) 14:01, 2 October 2018 (UTC)

I'm continuing with the deletion of all pages you have created in the past in this way. Leaving something like Kämmerer (modern) in the mainspace is simply not acceptable. Fram (talk) 06:54, 4 October 2018 (UTC)

Similarly, in Annette Fugmann-Heesing the first line of the body of the article read "Annette Fugmann-Heesing is the daughter of Interior Designer and Travelling Salesman". WTF? Fram (talk) 06:55, 4 October 2018 (UTC)


Fram (talk) if I find legitimate third person sources for all the articles you deleted is that ok for to create? Dwanyewest (talk) 10:11, 4 October 2018 (UTC)
Yes, the topic of the article wasn't the problem, the way they were created was~the issue. Fram (talk) 11:15, 4 October 2018 (UTC)

Please slow down and take your time creating decent articles with acceptable sources. I've already sent one empty article to draft space, and something like German Karate Federation is problematic as well: the first line is again a bad translation of the German article (a practice you really need to stop if you don't want to get blocked), the mention of France indicates that the body is a poor copy-paste job of your own article as well, and the first source is not about the subject either. There is no rush in getting these recreated, better you do it a lot slower but with better results. Fram (talk) 13:20, 4 October 2018 (UTC)

Fram I am in the library since I don't have my own computer and you mass deleted a ton of articles and most the articles had notable articles and its going to take weeks to rewrite most of the articles. Dwanyewest (talk) 13:25, 4 October 2018 (UTC)
Yes. That's what writing articles usually takes, time and effort. Not running things through Google translate without much care about the results you get. Your method wsa faster, but not acceptable. Fram (talk) 13:28, 4 October 2018 (UTC)

Gull[edit]

Hi, I agree that these two dogs Gull Dong and Gull Terr should be added to Wikipedia. However, both were added and failed to obtain a consensus and were deleted. If you want to try to rewrite the articles with more new citations, I support your efforts.
