In the past I accepted money from Vipul Naik to edit Wikipedia; see User:Ethanbas/Paid articles. Vipul's paid content creation project has been shut down due to accusations of SEO optimization and general hostility on WP against paid editing. All payments always came directly from Vipul's personal funds.

MfD on ACE[edit]

The first sentence of your posts, "User:VQuakr, Slate Star Codex was made 2 hours ago." is duly noted; I can strike/update the verbage of my nomination accordingly. The rest of your statements at the MfD indicate to me that you are too emotionally invested in this subject for you to productively contribute to the deletion discussion. Vipul requested userfication of deleted articles and then added INDEX tags to increase search engine visibility, in at least one instance, because he was explicitly paid to do so. Neither I nor any neutral editor is going to care about your personal endorsement of an editor's motivations, and it is hard for me to imagine such an endorsement having any bearing on the result of a deletion discussion.

At a minimum, please keep the drama relegated to talk space. VQuakr (talk) 03:53, 17 March 2017 (UTC)

"Vipul requested userfication of deleted articles and then added INDEX tags to increase search engine visibility, in at least one instance, because he was explicitly paid to do so" VQuakr, what is this one instance you speak of? Please link me to it. Ethanbas (talk) 03:56, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
Why? VQuakr (talk) 04:07, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
You accuse Vipul and Riceissa of doing something malicious; I want to see the proof. Ethanbas (talk) 04:09, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
And you have a history of tag teaming the exact articles in question. Your attempt to play dumb is quite transparent. VQuakr (talk) 04:14, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
Where's the proof for your smearing attempt, VQuakr? Should be pretty easy to give, but for *some reason*, you're playing games with me! Ethanbas (talk) 04:17, 17 March 2017 (UTC)

professors[edit]

If you;d like to do some completely non-controversial help, you might go to the stubs you have been entering for various mostly European professors, and add at least their academic degrees, and the titlesof the books (not articles) that they have written. DGG ( talk ) 05:09, 23 March 2017 (UTC)

I think I only made 4 articles on professors, and they're all Israeli Ethanbas (talk) 05:33, 23 March 2017 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Dataminr[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 Dataminr 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 an organization or company, 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.

Disruptive IP[edit]

About this: Yes, I know, Ethanbas, I had already checked their range. Unfortunately the range seems to be used quite a lot for constructive editing, which probably isn't the same person. So, as much as I like blocking people,[1] I hesitate to block the range (though I may, if they continue to disrupt). Blocking the individual fluctuating IPs isn't much use, I'm afraid. I can semiprotect your page if you like. Bishonen | talk 17:28, 25 March 2017 (UTC).

Speedy deletion nomination of Gauti Eggertsson[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 Gauti Eggertsson requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page appears to be an unambiguous copyright infringement. This page appears to be a direct copy from http://voxeu.org/users/gautibeggertsson0. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images taken from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites or other printed material as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website or image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text or image — which means allowing other people to use it for any reason — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. The same holds if you are not the owner but have their permission. If you are not the owner and do not have permission, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission for how you may obtain it. You might want to look at Wikipedia's copyright policy for more details, or ask a question here.

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. — Diannaa 🍁 (talk) 22:31, 8 May 2017 (UTC)

Hello. I have no objections to your page movie -- in fact, I think it's a better title from an NPOV perspective even if the content isn't changed.

List of Lehi members[edit]

Hi there are only 15 members on this list and 10 already on the other page. Why do you think there is a need for a separate page. WP:OTHERSTUFFEXISTS is not really a good argument. Domdeparis (talk) 16:53, 3 June 2017 (UTC)

Lehi was an important organization, and many of its members went on to be important in Israel. The issue is that Lehi has significantly less material on it in the English language than in Hebrew. I think the main article can list the members who are important enough that they have Wikipedia articles, while the separate list article can list many more notable members who perhaps don't have anything written about them in English. Ethanbas (talk) 16:59, 3 June 2017 (UTC)
FWIW Domdeparis, http://lehi.org.il seems like the authoritative Hebrew source on Lehi, and it's what I'll be using to add people to the list. Ethanbas (talk) 17:00, 3 June 2017 (UTC)
To be on the list the members have to be notable themselves as per WP:LISTS. I really feel that unless there are a large number of notable people that were members this WP:STANDALONE list is not necessary which is why I created the redirect. You have already added a person that does not have his own WP page so in reality there are just 14 notable members for the moment which is better kept on the main article page. When the list become unwieldy then a separate article is needed. For the moment the article is superfluous. Domdeparis (talk) 17:08, 3 June 2017 (UTC)
Domdeparis https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Notability#Stand-alone_lists "Because the group or set is notable, the individual items in the list do not need to be independently notable" Ethanbas (talk) 17:14, 3 June 2017 (UTC)
Putting commanders who aren't notable enough to have their own article isn't appropriate for the main article, but it is appropriate for the list I created, and it's in fact one of the major purposes of the list. Ethanbas (talk) 17:16, 3 June 2017 (UTC)

Domdeparis I added some stuff to List of Lehi members. I'm busy with my final exams now, so that will be all for now. Ethanbas (talk) 17:40, 3 June 2017 (UTC)

Hi Ethan I've left a comment on the deletion talk page with my POV. We'll see how that pans out. If it is redirected rather than being deleted there is the that the work that has already gone into it is not lost it is kept in the history and you can continue to work in your sandbox finding and sourcing and writing about other members as per the criteria of WP:LISTPEOPLE and then when you think it's ready edit the redirect with a discussion on the talk page to justify your changes. Happy editing and good luck with your exams. Domdeparis (talk) 09:52, 6 June 2017 (UTC)

Hello Ethanbas,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Frida Ghitis for deletion, because the article doesn't clearly say why the subject is important enough to be included in an encyclopedia.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions.

Pillows[edit]

Why not expand that Pillows article if its so important to you? See WP:MOSALBUM for album article guidelines. --Jennica / talk 06:31, 21 July 2017 (UTC)

User:Jennica, there is the issue of me not speaking Japanese, so it's difficult for me to interpret Japanese language materials. However, I generally follow an article creation philosophy of creating mostly stub/short articles that meet notability criteria and are unlikely to be deleted (because they met notability criteria, even if they are very short/stubby). Some people like this, some don't. I would say maybe 25% of these short/stubby articles become full articles within 6 months (many person articles I create do; another notable example are the presidential timelines, thanks solely to the efforts of user Informant16). I find that this is the easiest/best way for me to contribute to Wikipedia; I generally do not have the interest/motivation to write beyond a stub, even for articles on a band I'm a big fan of. A number of Wikipedians have opposed my stub creations in the past; however, most survive AfDs (not to mention speedies and PRODs), although I don't really like it when a stub I create generates a long AfD discussion. So, this is some of my thinking. Ethanbas (talk) 08:05, 21 July 2017 (UTC)
Example of recent stub I created that generated a long AfD: Eric Katz. This AfD isn't as bad as usual though, because it may have some value by helping nuance what WP:ACADEMIC covers. Ethanbas (talk) 08:07, 21 July 2017 (UTC)
@Ethanbas I think you should start these articles in draft space and work on expanding them. Google translate will translate full pages. If there is no other coverage though, I am afraid it is eligible for deletion or becoming a redirect. It's not supposed to be an insult to you. There needs to be chart, sales, or reviews. Upon a quick search I cannot fin dany of those, therefore it's non-notable and shouldn't be on wiki. --Jennica / talk 08:35, 21 July 2017 (UTC)
I couldn't find anything either User:Jennica, so I'll leave the article redirected. Ethanbas (talk) 15:53, 21 July 2017 (UTC)

About Seattle Department of Transportation[edit]

Information icon Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you tried to give Seattle Department of Transportation a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into another page with a different name. This is known as a "cut-and-paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is legally required for attribution. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page (the tab may be hidden in a dropdown menu for you). This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Requests for history merge. Thank you. SounderBruce 23:56, 22 July 2017 (UTC)

User:SounderBruce, Wikipedia:Moving_a_page is just an essay; as far as I know, copying a draft into mainspace (as long as attribution is provided) is considered OK. Also, following your template would lead to a redirect from draftspace to mainspace, which is undesirable. Ethanbas (talk) 00:28, 23 July 2017 (UTC)
Cut and paste moves are heavily discouraged because it messes up the page history function and creates headaches for administrators. Attribution is indeed required, but drafts should not be moved without consensus from the main contributors, like most cases across Wikipedia. A redirect from draft space to main space is fine by itself, but I can also move pages without leaving a redirect behind through the PageMover permission. SounderBruce 00:32, 23 July 2017 (UTC)
Cut&paste (or copy&paste) moves are so strongly discouraged that when an admin, such as I, becomes aware of one, it is almost certain to be undone at once. There is no good reason to do one. If you think that Draft:Seattle Department of Transportation is ready to move to mainspace, you can follow the procedure at Requested Moves and start a discussion at Draft talk:Seattle Department of Transportation
Redirects from mainspace to draft space or userspace are usually deleted, but redirects from draft to mainspace are left in place routinely. They do no harm.
SounderBruce, the "main contributors" do not own a draft, any more than they would an article. Someone who thinks a move would be an improvement may boldly make one. However, if an editor is aware that a move would be controversial, or objected to by a significant number of editors, consensus should be sought from all interested editors in advance. But previous contributors have no privileged status in such a discussion.
All such moves should be done via the move function, not via copy&paste. only when merging pages is copy&paste with attribution usual. DES (talk)DESiegel Contribs 01:31, 23 July 2017 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of High Five (band)[edit]

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

A tag has been placed on High Five (band) 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 band or musician, 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.

I just wanted to say sorry about this one, when I added it to your article I was probably a touch hasty. I know it did end up getting speedily deleted, but clearly it didn't deserve that fate. I'm glad you were able to recreate it successfully. I wouldn't have nominated it if I found any of the sources that you added when you recreated the article, but it absolutely blew up hours later. Again, sorry I'm glad you got it back. menaechmi (talk) 14:50, 1 August 2017 (UTC)
No worries menaechmi. I've had it happen before that I create a stub on something notable, but then it gets speedied for not indicating notability, so I'm slowly learning to add a bit more to why the article's subject is notable. With short stubs, the loss of labor is small anyway. Ethanbas (talk) 19:02, 1 August 2017 (UTC)

Potential timeline retirement[edit]

So I've had no problem trying to contribute to the timeline articles, but apparently once they hit 300 bytes, in spite of each individual year not being prepared to stand as its own article, someone can just come along and split it unnecessarily and I have no input? - Informant16 September 22, 2017

Informant16, I'm sorry to hear that! Wikipedia can often be an unpleasant place to work in. However, in this case, I think the chance the year split will happen is extremely low, so I wouldn't worry! Your input of course does matter, more than anyone else's; editors just sometimes like to follow Wikipedia:Be bold, but in this situation, I think there is a consensus against splitting it up by year.

How do I handle this?[edit]

It seems there is a blockage in every attempt of mine to make an addition on any article that isn't a timeline, and a policy to ensure I just sit back and accept it. I've been making additions to the Gerald Ford article that apparently were acceptable until November 27, 2017 - when a user determined that I was trying to compose a timeline by placing events in order of when they happened. I was hoping to spin off a post-presidency article, which has happened three times and was actually advocated for with the last article of this kind that I made additions to. This isn't my attempt to get you involved but to instead pick your brain about what should be done here. - Informant16 November 27, 2017

Proposed deletion of Dead cat strategy[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Dead cat strategy has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Wikipedia is not a dictionary; this page contains nothing other than a definition, three external links, and a block quote. It adds nothing to Wikipedia, and would be best as either a Wikitionary redirect or nothing at all.

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. 2601:643:8102:AAA0:8080:1124:175E:3ADE (talk) 01:00, 18 March 2018 (UTC)

Wei Dai's WikiQuote Page[edit]

Thank you for notifying me Ethanbas‬, super excited to hear that you set up Wei Dai page on WikiQuote. I am not super familiar with WikiQuote and it's policy, I was under impression that all quoted sentences needs to be notable, or not? Xinbenlv (talk) 16:11, 6 April 2018 (UTC)

Hi Xinbenlv, I did not set up the Wikiquote page, user "Issarice" did. My impression of the notability criteria on Wikiquote is that it's much more relaxed than Wikipedia. In fact, I don't even recall ever finding a notability guideline on Wikiquote. Ethanbas (talk) 21:26, 6 April 2018 (UTC)

? next quarter for Trump timeline[edit]

This can't be right but I don't know what to do.―Buster7  14:36, 8 April 2018 (UTC)

lol, is no one editing the timeline now Buster7? Ethanbas (talk) 00:47, 9 April 2018 (UTC)
It sure doesn't seem like it...except for a few other editor entries Ive been the only one making entries for a couple of weeks. Which is truly amazing and disheartening that there is such a lack of interest or motivation or whatever. I myself am a reluctant participant at the timeline but if we don't keep up with the input...the info gets lost in time and its hard to separate the wheat from the chaff. I just don't have the tech skills to create the next quarter especially with the above redirect which I don't know how to countermand. A lot has happened in the past week that needs to be captured. Thanks for anything you can do. ―Buster7  06:01, 9 April 2018 (UTC)
It should be good to work on now technically Buster7. I'm busy with IRL stuff so I can't work on it unfortunately. Ethanbas (talk) 06:09, 9 April 2018 (UTC)

My last day[edit]

It was my intention to work on the other presidential timeline articles after completeing the Carter one which was about halfway done but I can say now that I see I am done. I got into a spat over some edits on the George H. W. Bush article and you can see the background on that if you go on the article's talk page. In short, I am constantly reminded of how with virtually every article I edit bar the timelines there's always someone trying to delete my material, no matter how absurd it is. In making the case for removing my material, because there was a full-article on it, the user deleted the link to the article and made it less likely to be known to someone that didn't frequent this site. So I'm out because of consistently trying to add material and basically being punished for doing so. I thank you for being one of the few users that did not make logging onto this site and contributing the equivalent of pulling teeth. - Informant16 14 May 2018

I'm feeling a little bit better. I'll probably just wrap up the timelines and then retire. At least they don't persecute over those. - Informant16 15 May 2018
Sorry to see how your additions were completely removed Informant16. I think your timeline articles are pretty deletionproof, and I think other timeline articles would be as well. Each of the presidential timeline articles you've worked on receive ~1000 pageviews each month, so it's not just me who appreciates how much work you've put into Wikipedia. Again, I think timeline articles are a good bet for avoiding the bad side of Wikipedia editing. Avoiding the big/main Wikipedia articles is also a good bet; George H. W. Bush has almost 1000 page watchers. Ethanbas (talk) 23:01, 15 May 2018 (UTC)
I've noticed the same trend, in regards to articles about individuals having a higher rate of deletion of my material. The biggest frustration I have is in being punished over working on articles for the site. He literally gave me a block warning after I reverted the article back to the same state as originally left by the user who deleted the entirety of what I wrote. I just want you to understand that what I added still left the page smaller than that of other presidents, the section smaller than on that of other presidents' articles, and they couldn't name anything in particular that was wrong about the additional information. Also, there's something wrong when after getting all of your material deleted, and complying with that deletion, you get charged with having vandalized the same page. - Informant16 14 May 2018

Speedy deletion declined: Markus Moberg[edit]

Hello Ethanbas. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Markus Moberg, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: claims significance, text is not promotional. Thank you. SoWhy 10:40, 12 July 2018 (UTC)

Disambiguation[edit]

Re this which restores a request for a disambiguation of Mukhabarat, I don't think it requires disambiguation since the link serves to tell you what the term means, i.e. what Pappé is arguing. Of course on that page there are various Mukhabarat-running countries, but Pappé is referring to the concept, not any one instance of it. regards Nishidani (talk) 14:56, 25 July 2018 (UTC)

Copying within Wikipedia requires attribution[edit]

Speedy deletion nomination of Strengthening Retirement Security in America[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.

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. This is a notice to inform you that a tag has been placed on Strengthening Retirement Security in America requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an article with no content whatsoever, or whose contents consist only of external links, a "See also" section, book references, category tags, template tags, interwiki links, images, a rephrasing of the title, a question that should have been asked at the help or reference desks, or an attempt to contact the subject of the article. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

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.

Strengthening Retirement Security in America moved to draftspace[edit]

An article you recently created, Strengthening Retirement Security in America, does not have enough sources and citations as written to remain published. 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 click on the "Submit your draft for review!" button at the top of the page.
