Re your kind thanks. Cheers, Edwardx, nice article

DYK for Sam Panopoulos[edit]

Updated DYK query.svg On 16 July 2017, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Sam Panopoulos, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status.

Information re: Mr. de la Cruz[edit]

Edward,

The information you are entering is considered Defamation of character and slandering. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mmg1101 (talkcontribs) 14:15, 19 July 2017 (UTC)

If that is your view, then you should be approaching those who published the information. The Wikipedia article on Carlos de la Cruz only seeks to summarise what is reported in reliable sources. To encourage a wider debate, I will copy this discussion to Talk:Carlos de la Cruz, and should you wish to make any further comment, please do so there. Edwardx (talk) 15:26, 19 July 2017 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Joseph David-Jones[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Joseph David-Jones requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a real person or group of people, but it does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

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 removed 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. MARK JHOMEL💣💥 13:50, 21 July 2017 (UTC)

American film stubs[edit]

Hello! While I appreciate your work in adding stub articles to {{WikiProject Film}} with the appropriate stub tags, for American films the country tags should only be used as a last resort. There are over 25,000 Stub-class film articles that fall under the American cinema task force, so please consider using a more appropriate genre stub tag on those articles, instead of the stub tags in Category:American film stubs. Thanks! Fortdj33 (talk) 04:47, 28 July 2017 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of AI Global Media[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article AI Global Media has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

No assertion of notability. Seems to fail WP:NCORP and WP:GNG.

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.

Autoconfirmed user for article creation[edit]

Hi Edwardx, I'm glad to lend a hand. Have you saw this: Wikipedia:ACTRIAL. scope_creep (talk) 14:54, 1 August 2017 (UTC)

Thanks. Very interesting. "25% of new accounts start by creating a new page." - but what %age of that 25% are SPAs, sockpuppets, COI and/or paid editors? Having edited in business-related areas for some years now, I've noticed that the amount of new articles that are either advertising or insufficiently notable is getting out of hand. That's why I'm getting more involved at WP:COIN, and trying to get some of it deleted. Edwardx (talk) 23:52, 5 August 2017 (UTC)

Declined speedy nominations[edit]

Hi. I've just declined four of your CSD nominations under WP:G11 in the last five minutes. To be eligible for G11, articles must be unambiguously promotional, and it must not be practically possible to remove promotional content to leave a viable article. You might want to give the guidance another read before nominating more CSDs. Regards, Basalisk inspect damageberate 20:08, 5 August 2017 (UTC)

Perhaps I have been a tad over-zealous here and there, but they were all eligible under WP:G5 too as I recall. However, with Twinkle one can only choose one criterion. Edwardx (talk) 23:30, 5 August 2017 (UTC)
I actually think Twinkle allows for tagging under multiple criteria. Otherwise it might be best to do it manually if you have more than one criterion to use. Basalisk inspect damageberate 21:45, 8 August 2017 (UTC)

Your thanks[edit]

Strange karma!

For the last two days I have been seriously considering leaving WP as a waste of time, so your thanks for an edit I made meant a lot more than you may have realised.

The reason for being disheartened was excessive deletions and calls for deletion. Yesterday I spent time checking these awful people who are so destructive. You were one!

On coming here, I saw the above conversation, which was also enlightening. May I suggest: be bold but be thoughtful, for you tread on dreams... Your actions may add to an oppressive atmosphere that extends from the particular to the general, presumably unintended.

But now I've seen your nice side, so thank you very much. Protozoon (talk) 12:00, 6 August 2017 (UTC)

And thank you for your kind words, Protozoon. The Pease family are indeed very interesting, and little in the public eye. And I've started several articles connected to the Grenfell Tower fire.
For many years, it was very rare that I would nominate an article for deletion, having always been more interested in content creation and starting new articles. However, in recent months the volume of new articles which are essentially ads created by paid editors for non-notable businesses and businesspeople has been getting out of hand. So, how can one tell that they are by paid editors? The typical behaviour is that a new editor creates a well-crafted article, does a few edits on it, then never edits again. Said paid editor then creates another account and another article, rinse and repeat. It is those articles that I try to get deleted, and looking at the Contributions of the article creator, not just the article History, can be instructive. If a well-intentioned editor such as yourself was to create an article that I thought read too much like an ad, was poorly referenced or of marginal notability, I would try to help them improve it, and NOT nominate it for deletion!
