April 2018 Milhist Backlog Drive[edit]

G'day all, please be advised that throughout April 2018 the Military history Wikiproject is running its annual backlog elimination drive. This will focus on several key areas:

  • tagging and assessing articles that fall within the project's scope
  • adding or improving listed resources on Milhist's task force pages
  • updating the open tasks template on Milhist's task force pages
  • creating articles that are listed as "requested" on the project's various lists of missing articles.

As with past Milhist drives, there are points awarded for working on articles in the targeted areas, with barnstars being awarded at the end for different levels of achievement.

The drive is open to all Wikipedians, not just members of the Military history project, although only work on articles that fall (broadly) within the scope of military history will be considered eligible. This year, the Military history project would like to extend a specific welcome to members of Wikipedia:WikiProject Women in Red, and we would like to encourage all participants to consider working on helping to improve our coverage of women in the military. This is not the sole focus of the edit-a-thon, though, and there are aspects that hopefully will appeal to pretty much everyone.

The drive starts at 00:01 UTC on 1 April and runs until 23:59 UTC on 30 April 2018. Those interested in participating can sign up here.

Mona, Jamaica[edit]

Hi,

I reverted your edit to Mona, Jamaica because the school is not in Mona. It's in a neighbourhood bordering Mona. The article that you cited does not say that the school is in Mona.–CaroleHenson (talk) 21:08, 31 May 2018 (UTC)

Sorry, I don't mean to pelt you with negative comments. I just got scared that I was going to have my clean-up work doubled. I think I was wrong.–CaroleHenson (talk) 21:21, 31 May 2018 (UTC)

FloridaArmy pages[edit]

Thanks for the sterling work in cleaning up the articles and moving them back to mainspace. As you may have have noticed from my edit summaries it is mostly a problem with sourcing rather than potential notability that was my main concerns when I draftified them. It is a shame that FloridaArmy did not do this work themselves with each article before moving on to their next creation. That said a certain number of their creations were fine which is why I left them in mainspace. You may consider the ban stupid but as patrollers we have had to deal with a very large number of unacceptable articles pouring into the feed that an experienced editor should not have left in that state. If you have read the noticeboard you will have seen 17 !votes to support the ban and not a single one opposing it. The most frustrating thing was the absence of any reaction from FloridaArmy despite having been asked to comment. The responsibility for this ban lies clearly on his the shoulders. You might want to have a look at my !vote here to also understand what the problems were with his behavior in Afd. Dom from Paris (talk) 22:29, 31 May 2018 (UTC)

And you'll find in the long run that the ban will benefit him as well as the rest of the community; he will be forced to become a more considerate and useful editor and may eventually become a valued contributor. Deb (talk) 12:16, 1 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Allow me, please, a small remark: FloridaArmy has not been, so far, a "net positive" in Wikipedia but a huge negative. We are supposed to evaluate Wikipedia as users and not just as editors. A user coming to Wikipedia will encounter an avalanche of poorly written, carelessly sourced articles written by FA. Where's the good or the "positive" in that? The number of the articles FA discharges, and it is a big number, is unimportant and irrelevant. When I look in Wikipedia for subject XYZ, and I come upon a poorly written article about XYZ, it does not matter at all how many other articles the creator of XYZ has created. Quantity is good only if quality is good. Take care. -The Gnome (talk) 10:33, 3 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Here's what I nearly posted in response to their latest replies to RegentsPark on their talk page re: supposed hounding and the Demerara window article.

    Your contributions have been tracked by numerous people for a reason, and that reason ultimately led to the recent editing restrictions imposed upon you. Following and cleaning up the edits of an abysmal contributor would be an exception to the rule, for example. I predict that unless your attitude changes soon, you will find yourself prevented from contributing to the project at all. You treat almost everything as a combat between you and everyone else. I am tempted to take you back to ANI right now because things are not really improving. WP:ROPE might be worth a read.

The only reason I didn't is because I am not supposed to post to their talk page. That just means it will end up at ANI without any prior warning from me, although they have previously been told by others that such stuff is not hounding. . - Sitush (talk) 15:55, 3 June 2018 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Draft:Lizzie Doron[edit]

A tag has been placed on Draft:Lizzie Doron requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done for the following reason:

redirect from a Draft moved to mainspace

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, pages that meet certain criteria may be deleted at any time.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here.

Magnus Devold[edit]

Hi you moved the above article back to mainspace without making any improvements especially to the sourcing with the comment "Seems notable to me". The trouble is I don't think you took the time to look at the sources enough. The VG article is in-depth coverage but the Kampanje article has a banner at the top of the page that says "Annonsørfinansiert innhold" which means "Advertiser-funded content" and the line at the top where the author's name would be it says "Reklame" which means "Advertising". It's fine to move these articles back but please only do it if you've addressed the sourcing problems and 1 RS is not enough to prove notability. I've tagged it for notability as I don't want to get into a move war. cheers Dom from Paris (talk) 06:06, 10 June 2018 (UTC)

D. J. Hogg moved to draftspace[edit]

An article you recently created, D. J. Hogg, does not have enough sources and citations as written to remain published and may not meet Wikipedia's notability guidelines including those for basketball players. It needs more citations from reliable, independent sources. (?) Information that can't be referenced should be removed (verifiability is of central importance on Wikipedia). I've moved your draft to draftspace (with a prefix of "Draft:" before the article title) where you can incubate the article with minimal disruption. When you feel the article meets Wikipedia's general notability guideline and thus is ready for mainspace, please follow the confirms on the Articles for Creation template atop the page. Best, Barkeep49 (talk) 00:46, 12 June 2018 (UTC)

File:Tenth Marshall Tucker.jpg[edit]

Hi, I'm RonBot, a script that checks new non-free file uploads. I have found that the subject image that you recently uploaded was more than 5% in excess of the Non-free content guideline size of 100,000 pixels. I have tagged the image for a standard reduction, which (for jpg/gif/png/svg files) normally happens within a day. Please check the reduced image, and make sure that the image is not excessively corrupted. Other files will be added to Category:Wikipedia non-free file size reduction requests for manual processing. There is a full seven-day period before the original oversized image will be hidden; during that time you might want to consider editing the original image yourself (perhaps an initial crop to allow a smaller reduction or none at all). A formula for calculation the desired size can be found at WP:Image resolution, along with instructions on how to tag the image in the rare cases that it requires an oversized image (typically about 0.2% of non-free uploads are tagged as necessarily oversized). Please contact the bot owner if you have any questions, or you can ask them at Wikipedia talk:Non-free content. RonBot (talk) 17:12, 13 June 2018 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Sourou-Migan Apithy.jpg[edit]

⚠
Thanks for uploading File:Sourou-Migan Apithy.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in section F5 of the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 17:48, 21 June 2018 (UTC)

Deletion of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jody_Byrne_(academic)[edit]

Hi there, I see that you undid my request to delete an article about me on the basis that the subject of the article is not notable. I wholeheartedly agree that the subject (aka ME) is not notable and should not have a Wikipedia article. The page was created a long time ago under pressure from a former employer. It is no longer relevant, will never be updated and is largely inaccurate. Please delete the page. I will go along with whatever verification process you want to prove I am the subject of the article.

Thanks, Jody — Preceding unsigned comment added by Scutterfly (talkcontribs) 09:41, 26 June 2018 (UTC)

Hi there, I'm not a wikipedia expert and don't want to be but I need help getting that article deleted. I know you editors are here voluntarily but I need your help. When people start saying "oh take it to WP:AFD" it means absolutely nothing to me and I don;t know what exactly you want me to do. All I want is for the page to be deleted in accordance with my rights under GDPR.

"Asserts notability"[edit]

While anyone is free to remove a PROD, "Asserts notability" is a rather crappy reason to remove one. PROD is not CSD, which means that the mere assertion of notability is not enough to prevent deletion normally. In at least one case, notability wasn't even the only valid reason for deletion.

Proposed deletion of Isom Butler[edit]

Notice

The article Isom Butler has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Does not meet WP:NHOOPS. Fails WP:GNG with lack of significant coverage in multiple, reliable, independent sources. Predominantly trivial mentions in sources.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. —Bagumba (talk) 10:02, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

Hey there! I live in the county, so I like editing about places nearby. That said, do you think all of the properties in Cape May Historic District even need an article? Only Cape May City Hall is needed IMO. There are four redlinks on National Register of Historic Places listings in Cape May County, New Jersey that could be made.

Candidates[edit]

The issue is that candidates are not deemed to pass WP:NPOL just for being candidates — but since every candidate always receives some campaign coverage during the election, if the existence of some campaign coverage were all it took to get a candidate over WP:GNG in lieu of failing NPOL, then there would never be any such thing as a non-notable candidate anymore. Every candidate in every election would always get that "campaign coverage exists" exemption from having to pass NPOL, thus completely disembowelling our notability standards from politicians (which exist for real reasons, including the tendency of politicians to try to hijack their articles as campaign brochures) from actually having any meaning or application at all anymore.

So campaign coverage is not enough all by itself to get a candidate over GNG. There are two ways to make a candidate notable enough for an encyclopedia article without their having to win the election first: either you can show sources which demonstrate that they had preexisting notability for other reasons that would already have gotten them an article independently of the candidacy, or you can show that their candidacy has received so much more coverage than everybody else's candidacies (e.g. the way Alexandria Ocasio Cortez is already a nationally famous figure who's already flying around the country to endorse and campaign for other candidates even before she's actually been elected to anything yet, when it's incredibly unusual for a first-time candidate who's never held office before to already have that much power and national name recognition) that the candidacy has a credible claim to being a special case. "Some campaign coverage exists" is not enough all by itself, because there's no candidate anywhere for whom some campaign coverage ever doesn't exist. Bearcat (talk) 16:30, 11 September 2018 (UTC)

The fact that some biographical information can be sourced doesn't make her more notable than other candidates in and of itself, and neither do namechecks of her existence in articles about larger phenomena that she happens to be a part of. For a candidate to attain notability just for being a candidate in and of itself without having to have a stronger notability claim on top of that, the test is not "some sources exist" — it is "sources exist which demonstrate that she's already so nationally megafamous that even if she loses the election this year people will still be looking for an encyclopedia article about her ten years from now anyway". Christine O'Donnell hit that mark, Jon Ossoff hit that mark, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez hit that mark — but the vast majority of candidates don't. Bearcat (talk) 16:50, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
Please read WP:ONLYESSAY — essays are not ignorable just because they're essays, because they still represent actual explanations and clarifications of real Wikipedia principles. Essays still have to be taken seriously — the key to rendering an essay inapplicable is not to say "that's just an essay", it's to address substantive reasons why this situation is different from all the other cases where the essay was applied. 10YT is an accurate summary of how Wikipedia tries to evaluate notability — in all human careers, our inclusion criteria are not based on the principle of "who happens to be temporarily newsy today", but on the principle of enduring notability that has valid claim to permanence. And what about the article suggests that Mary Gay Scanlon has accomplished anything that suggests that people will still be looking for an article about her in 2028 even if she loses her election in November? If she wins the seat in November, then the article will obviously get recreated within hours — but what evidence does the article show that she's already earned permanent notability regardless of whether she wins or loses the seat in November? Bearcat (talk) 17:13, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
Actually, even settlements don't just need to exist — even WP:GEOLAND requires that a settlement's existence is reliably sourceable to sources which enable us to say more than just "Settlement is a place that exists, the end." But that said, we have to have stricter notability standards for people than we do for inanimate objects, because people are uniquely prone to misusing Wikipedia to promote themselves in an advertorial manner and/or to make attack edits against their enemies. People have reputations that can be harmed if we get stuff wrong, a person can sue us for libel if we make a mistake, people can make false claims about themselves in order to appear more notable than they really are, people can wrap their articles in an advertorialized writing tone that doesn't follow Wikipedia's NPOV requirements, and on and so forth.
The bottom line is, this isn't about my own personal standards at all — Wikipedia has an established consensus that the inclusion standards for people need to be tight, precisely because our open "anybody can edit" structure leaves us incredibly vulnerable to advertorial or attack-editing abuse. We have an established consensus that the inclusion test for politicians is holding a notable office, and not just standing as a candidate for one — and we have an established consensus that because every candidate always gets campaign coverage, and thus every candidate could always claim that they'd passed GNG and were thus exempted from having to pass NPOL, a candidate does not pass GNG just because the expected campaign coverage exists.
You need to keep in mind that across the United States right now, with all the offices that are up for election (Congress, state houses, governor's mansions, cabinet positions, city or county councils, etc.) the number of people who are candidates for something is approaching or possibly even exceeding 50 thousand. Every last manjack or womanjack one of them has received enough campaign coverage to at least attempt the argument that they pass GNG, and are therefore exempted from having to pass NPOL, just because the campaign coverage exists. Most of them are going to lose, turning their candidacy into a WP:BLP1E fail. Then multiply that by the fact that there will be at least as many candidates again in the 2020 elections. Then keep in mind that Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, South Africa, France, Germany, New Zealand, Japan, India, Brazil, Mexico, Italy, Spain, Poland and dozens of other countries also have democratic elections with multiple candidates for multiple offices. All of this, remember, in a subject area which requires very special heightened monitoring for NPOV issues, because politicians and their campaign staff regularly try to misuse Wikipedia to whitewash themselves and dirtwash their opponents — meaning that all of this scales far, far beyond Wikipedia's capacity to monitor and manage that risk. So the consensus was established that the base criterion for a politician getting a Wikipedia article is holding a notable office, not just running for one — and while there are rare situations where a candidate might qualify as a special case over and above most other candidates, that doesn't happen just because some campaign coverage exists, because some campaign coverage never doesn't exist: it happens only when the campaign coverage explodes really far out of scope with what every other candidate is also getting. Christine O'Donnell's article, for example, cites 168 distinct footnotes from sources that don't just expand past Delaware, but even expand completely outside the United States into Canada and England, and even the actual senator she lost to doesn't even have a third as many footnotes in his article as O'Donnell has in hers. That's the standard that a candidate needs to match or exceed to have her candidacy deemed to pass GNG in and of itself: not just "some campaign coverage exists", but "so much more coverage exists than normal that she's got a strong claim to her candidacy being special".
And none of this is because I have artificially inflated personal notability standards for politicians — my personal notability standards for politicians are in perfect lockstep with Wikipedia's established consensus, and are not something I made up myself just to be ornery. Bearcat (talk) 18:06, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
I endorse what Bearcat wrote above. We have a real problem with campaign brochures masquerading as encyclopedia articles. If we eliminate the existing consensus described above, the problem will immediately get 100 times worse, because professional political campaign staffers will instantly learn that Wikipedia allows campaign brochures. Tens of thousands of terrible articles will flood the encyclopedia. That would do grave damage to Wikipedia's reputation. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 01:02, 12 September 2018 (UTC)

Information icon Hello. Regarding the recent revert you made: you may already know about them, but you might find Wikipedia:Template messages/User talk namespace useful. After a revert, these can be placed on the user's talk page to let them know you considered their edit inappropriate, and also direct new users towards the sandbox. They can also be used to give a stern warning to a vandal when they've been previously warned. Thank you. Dmartin969 (talk) 01:59, 16 September 2018 (UTC)

File:The Working Poor.jpg[edit]

Hi, I'm RonBot, a script that checks new non-free file uploads. I have found that the subject image that you recently uploaded was more than 5% in excess of the Non-free content guideline size of 100,000 pixels. I have tagged the image for a standard reduction, which (for jpg/gif/png/svg files) normally happens within a day. Please check the reduced image, and make sure that the image is not excessively corrupted. Other files will be added to Category:Wikipedia non-free file size reduction requests for manual processing. There is a full seven-day period before the original oversized image will be hidden; during that time you might want to consider editing the original image yourself (perhaps an initial crop to allow a smaller reduction or none at all). A formula for calculation the desired size can be found at WP:Image resolution, along with instructions on how to tag the image in the rare cases that it requires an oversized image (typically about 0.2% of non-free uploads are tagged as necessarily oversized). Please contact the bot owner if you have any questions, or you can ask them at Wikipedia talk:Non-free content. See User:RonBot for info on how to not get these messages.

DYK for Shannon Evans[edit]

Updated DYK query.svgOn 3 December 2018, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Shannon Evans, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that the mother, grandparents, and great-aunt of basketball player Shannon Evans (pictured) helped him pay for prep school? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Shannon Evans. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Shannon Evans), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.
