Nomination of Business Initiative Directions for deletion or help[edit]

Help please with Business Initiative Directions entry/article. Hi Edward,

First of all sorry if I'm writing in the wrong place and sorry for my poor English (I'm not an English native speaker) I write to you because you wrote me back, and I have not been able to contact with someone else inside Wikipedia. Neither I understand the way this website works... I find no chat boxes nor anything. I must confess I'm and old man, and perhaps because of that I found this site incredible hostile. I write to you because since august someone posted an entry on Business Initiative Directions. Its a Spanish marketing agency that sells different products and services (I have no economic relation with them, except for the fact that the owner is an old friend and an old man like I) I want to be clear on the fact that yes, I know this company, and yes, 30 years ago (or more I don't recall) I worked with them several times. It's a marketing company, but the entry accuse them of selling "fake awards". They don't sell awards at all. They do advertising and corporate events. In their events they charge a fee, this is no secret, neither is illegal in anyway. They have 50 years operating inside Spain and now inside the European Union legal framework. Their HQ is located behind the Ministry of Defense in Madrid... every soul there knows them. They offer international business gatherings, and charge a fee for that (among other things more related to traditional marketing, like flyers, magazines and banners... they don't do digital because most of them are old people that don't even have social media) This article is destroying them... based on nothing at all but the opinion of a company that got the invitation to the event and got mad because they wanted to go to an business convention in Paris for free... this people then wrote to a so called NGO that decided to wage war on this small Spanish marketing agency. They created the Wikipedia post and used all the bad press against the company to destroy their prestige...everybody has bad press... this is not fair, neither I humbly believe, was the idea behind Wikipedia. I think Wikipedia was meant to be an encyclopedia for humanity. Not a corporate revenge instrument. Please, help us and guide us on how to deal with this. My friend is asking me if their version of the post could be taken into consideration. All complains of the NGO are addressed there, and even a mixed version will be acceptable for them, but what is cruel and brutal for this company reputation is to post only the NGO version... that is not fair.

Season's greetings![edit]

A demo wiki is up and running!

Dear members of WikiProject Genealogy, this will be the last newsletter for 2017, but maybe the most important one!

You can already now try out the demo for a genealogy wiki at https://tools.wmflabs.org/genealogy/wiki/Main_Page and try out the functions. You will find parts of the 18th Pharao dynasty and other records submitted by the 7 first users, and it would be great if you would add some records.

And with those great news we want to wish you a creative New Year 2018!

About the Everette Taylor article[edit]

Hi, I am writing concerning the UPE tag on the Everette Taylor article. I wish to remove it as I have actively edited the page, adding info and citations and I didn't collect a dime for my edits, I don't want my reputation smeared over some other editor's mistake. I hope my work on the page is adequate enough for you to consider taking off the banner. Thanks


Majid Al Futtaim : "too promotionnal issues"[edit]

Information are directly extracted from regional media sources but also from the US (e.g CNN, Bloomberg). Since the beginning of my intervention on this page (but also before if I am right), several sections have been taken off because they were "too promotional".

In most of the cases, my interventions are objective bullet points, they are simply presenting and don't have any subjective elements. It is simply not consistent and coherent to systematically remove them. They respect the rules of Wikipedia. Shall I request third parties to step in in order to validate the extracts in question ?

Completely clouded?
Cloud computing logo

Talk of cloud computing draws a veil over hardware, but also, less obviously but more importantly, obscures such intellectual distinction as matters most in its use. Wikidata begins to allow tasks to be undertaken that were out of easy reach. The facility should not be taken as the real point.

Coming in from another angle, the "executive decision" is more glamorous; but the "administrative decision" should be admired for its command of facts. Think of the attitudes ad fontes, so prevalent here on Wikipedia as "can you give me a source for that?", and being prepared to deal with complicated analyses into specified subcases. Impatience expressed as a disdain for such pedantry is quite understandable, but neither dirty data nor false dichotomies are at all good to have around.

Issue 13 and Issue 21, respectively on WP:MEDRS and systematic reviews, talk about biomedical literature and computing tasks that would be of higher quality if they could be made more "administrative". For example, it is desirable that the decisions involved be consistent, explicable, and reproducible by non-experts from specified inputs.

What gets clouded out is not impossibly hard to understand. You do need to put together the insights of functional programming, which is a doctrinaire and purist but clearcut approach, with the practicality of office software. Loopless computation can be conceived of as a seamless forward march of spreadsheet columns, each determined by the content of previous ones. Very well: to do a backward audit, when now we are talking about Wikidata, we rely on integrity of data and its scrupulous sourcing: and clearcut case analyses. The MEDRS example forces attention on purge attempts such as Beall's list.

Proposed deletion of Steve Sarowitz[edit]

Notice

The article Steve Sarowitz has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Delete per WP:NBUSINESSPEOPLE. Company he founded is not in the Fortune 500.

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.

DYK for Strong and stable[edit]

Updated DYK query.svgOn 4 May 2019, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Strong and stable, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that Theresa May described her leadership as "strong and stable" but her critics called it "weak and wobbly"? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Strong and stable. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Strong and stable), 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.

Request to remove the advert template[edit]

HelloEdwardx , I have been asked on behalf of Mr. Sanjiv Mehta to correct his article- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sanjiv_Mehta_(Indian_businessman) wherein you had originally assigned the Advert template. The edit request template got declined and was suggested on the talk page to ask you to remove the template. An earnest request to remove the Advert and COI template. Thanks. --Faizanmqs (talk) 07:29, 6 May 2019 (UTC)

Faizanmqs The article is too promotional, hence the advert tag. For example, the phrase, "he navigated the disruptions arising out of the Arab Spring". Surely that would apply to any businessman in such a role. And you need to declare your own conflict of interest. Please read Wikipedia:Conflict of interest. Edwardx (talk) 11:45, 6 May 2019 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Portia Clark[edit]

Hello Edwardx. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Portia Clark, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: There is at least a claim of notability. More of an AFD candidate than CSD, and there may be more sources available. Some of the sources are at least marginal now, so speedy ti not appropriate. Thank you.

Hello Edwardx, and thanks for patrolling new pages! I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Hugues Gentillon, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: Horribly written, but nothing that 20 minutes of fluff cutting can't fix. He appears to be notable, at least at first glance. This is more of an article needing fixing rather than pure advertising.

Semantic Web and TDM – a ContentMine view

Two dozen issues, and this may be the last, a valediction at least for a while.

It's time for a two-year summation of ContentMine projects involving TDM (text and data mining).

Wikidata and now Structured Data on Commons represent the overlap of Wikimedia with the Semantic Web. This common ground is helping to convert an engineering concept into a movement. TDM generally has little enough connection with the Semantic Web, being instead in the orbit of machine learning which is no respecter of the semantic. Don't break a taboo by asking bots "and what do you mean by that?"

The ScienceSource project innovates in TDM, by storing its text mining results in a Wikibase site. It strives for compliance of its fact mining, on drug treatments of diseases, with an automated form of the relevant Wikipedia referencing guideline MEDRS. Where WikiFactMine set up an API for reuse of its results, ScienceSource has a SPARQL query service, with look-and-feel exactly that of Wikidata's at query.wikidata.org. It also now has a custom front end, and its content can be federated, in other words used in data mashups: it is one of over 50 sites that can federate with Wikidata.

The human factor comes to bear through the front end, which combines a link to the HTML version of a paper, text mining results organised in drug and disease columns, and a SPARQL display of nearby drug and disease terms. Much software to develop and explain, so little time! Rather than telling the tale, Facto Post brings you ScienceSource links, starting from the how-to video, lower right.

ScienceSourceReview, introductory video: but you need run it from the original upload file on Commons
Links for participation

The review tool requires a log in on sciencesource.wmflabs.org, and an OAuth permission (bottom of a review page) to operate. It can be used in simple and more advanced workflows. Examples of queries for the latter are at d:Wikidata_talk:ScienceSource project/Queries#SS_disease_list and d:Wikidata_talk:ScienceSource_project/Queries#NDF-RT issue.

Please be aware that this is a research project in development, and may have outages for planned maintenance. That will apply for the next few days, at least. The ScienceSource wiki main page carries information on practical matters. Email is not enabled on the wiki: use site mail here to Charles Matthews in case of difficulty, or if you need support. Further explanatory videos will be put into commons:Category:ContentMine videos.

NPR Newsletter No.18[edit]

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Hello Edwardx,

WMF at work on NPP Improvements

Niharika Kohli, a product manager for the growth team, announced that work is underway in implementing improvements to New Page Patrol as part of the 2019 Community Wishlist and suggests all who are interested watch the project page on meta. Two requested improvements have already been completed. These are:

  • Allow filtering by no citations in page curation
  • Not having CSD and PRODs automatically marked as reviewed, reflecting current consensus among reviewers and current Twinkle functionality.
Reliable Sources for NPP

Rosguill has been compiling a list of reliable sources across countries and industries that can be used by new page patrollers to help judge whether an article topic is notable or not. At this point further discussion is needed about if and how this list should be used. Please consider joining the discussion about how this potentially valuable resource should be developed and used.

Backlog drive coming soon

Look for information on the an upcoming backlog drive in our next newsletter. If you'd like to help plan this drive, join in the discussion on the New Page Patrol talk page.
