Ali Saremi[edit]

Hello, I want to ask if you could not delete my article. I have in hand other reliable international sources such as from Amnesty international that I can add. This page is already published in Wikipedia Persian. Please remove the speedy deletion tag. I’ll really appreciate that. Thanks! Nikoo.Amini (talk) 23:53, 20 May 2019 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Kimberley Leonard[edit]

Hello Etzedek24. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Kimberley Leonard, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: presenting the news on a major news channel is a sufficient claim of significance. Thank you. SoWhy 07:58, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

Hi Etzedek24! I have looked over my page of Morphe Cosmetics and believe that the information is now presented in a more objective manner. Hopefully you agree, I tried to find sources regarding this topic and pulled as many as I could from as reputable of mediums as I could. Thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Vertyped (talkcontribs) 22:12, 28 June 2019 (UTC)

New Page Review newsletter July-August 2019[edit]

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Hello Etzedek24,

WMF at work on NPP Improvements

More new features are being added to the feed, including the important red alert for previously deleted pages. This will only work if it is selected in your filters. Best is to 'select all'. Do take a moment to check out all the new features if you have not already done so. If anything is not working as it should, please let us know at NPR. There is now also a live queue of AfC submissions in the New Pages Feed. Feel free to review AfCs, but bear in mind that NPP is an official process and policy and is more important.

QUALITY of REVIEWING

Articles are still not always being checked thoroughly enough. If you are not sure what to do, leave the article for a more experienced reviewer. Please be on the alert for any incongruities in patrolling and help your colleagues where possible; report patrollers and autopatrolled article creators who are ostensibly undeclared paid editors. The displayed ORES alerts offer a greater 'at-a-glance' overview, but the new challenges in detecting unwanted new content and sub-standard reviewing do not necessarily make patrolling any easier, nevertheless the work may have a renewed interest factor of a different kind. A vibrant community of reviewers is always ready to help at NPR.

Backlog

The backlog is still far too high at between 7,000 and 8,000. Of around 700 user rights holders, 80% of the reviewing is being done by just TWO users. In the light of more and more subtle advertising and undeclared paid editing, New Page Reviewing is becoming more critical than ever.

Move to draft

NPR is triage, it is not a clean up clinic. This move feature is not limited to bios so you may have to slightly re-edit the text in the template before you save the move. Anything that is not fit for mainspace but which might have some promise can be draftified - particularly very poor English and machine and other low quality translations.

Notifying users

Remember to use the message feature if you are just tagging an article for maintenance rather than deletion. Otherwise articles are likely to remain perma-tagged. Many creators are SPA and have no intention of returning to Wikipedia. Use the feature too for leaving a friendly note note for the author of a first article you found well made or interesting. Many have told us they find such comments particularly welcoming and encouraging.

PERM

Admins are now taking advantage of the new time-limited user rights feature. If you have recently been accorded NPR, do check your user rights to see if this affects you. Depending on your user account preferences, you may receive automated notifications of your rights changes. Requests for permissions are not mini-RfAs. Helpful comments are welcome if absolutely necessary, but the bot does a lot of the work and the final decision is reserved for admins who do thorough research anyway.

Other news

School and academic holidays will begin soon in various places around the Western world. Be on the lookout for the usual increase in hoax, attack, and other junk pages.

Our next newsletter might be announcing details of a possible election for co-ordinators of NPR. If you think you have what it takes to micro manage NPR, take a look at New Page Review Coordinators - it's a job that requires a lot of time and dedication.

Mis-use of the Twinkle rollback tool[edit]

AFD discussions very much are discussions, and rolling back the article creator's response to the question of an article's sourcing, with Twinkle's rollback tool, is wholly inappropriate. Do not do that again. Uncle G (talk) 23:27, 30 June 2019 (UTC)

@Uncle G: My apologies. I didn't know the two were linked. I reverted it because it was almost identical to something the editor posted on the talk page. No need to be snippy. Etzedek24 (I'll talk at ya) (Check my track record) 23:50, 30 June 2019 (UTC)

I have unreviewed a page you curated[edit]

Hi, I'm Onel5969. I wanted to let you know that I saw the page you reviewed, Keep the Peace, and have marked it as unpatrolled. If you have any questions, please ask them on my talk page. Thank you.

I have unreviewed a page you curated[edit]

Thanks for reviewing MIT Vishwashanti Gurukul, Etzedek24.

Onel5969 has gone over this page again and marked it as unpatrolled. Their note is:

Hi. As per the discussion on the NPP talk page, articles which have been tagged for prod or speedy, should not be marked "reviewed" until after the tag has been adjudicated.

Please contact Onel5969 for any further query. Thanks.

@Onel5969: Noted. Sorry about that, saw someone did it to a page I PROD'd and wasn't sure of the procedure. Etzedek24 (I'll talk at ya) (Check my track record) 01:51, 4 July 2019 (UTC)

AiroAv Anti Virus Software[edit]

1. I am not affiliated with AIROAV.

2. User:Danielcohens (my page) here on Wikipedia has a link to my profile in the Google Hall Of Fame with my picture and a long history of security credentials and contribution. So my publication on the subject of AiroAV is not about PR, rather SECURITY.

Please note, I am a professional security consultant and am on Google, AT&T, Adobe, Apple, and Microsoft's official website's with my name and picture (Daniel Cohen, Speed-net.com) for contribution. My name coincides with my own username here on Wikipedia and can easily be found online and emailed if necessary to confirm who I am. My Twitter handle is @dancohens and screenshots there can confirm my work. So that is my "affiliation" to security and purpose for creating the page as AIROAV is a Anti Virus company. But to be clear, my company Speed-net.com is not affiliated with AiroAV nor any of their businesses and you can do a simple Google search for "Daniel Cohen Speed-net.com" and find the necessary references and authority qualifications for my contribution to protecting online user activity.

Now to address AiroAV. It's an Anti Virus company. I don't use the software myself, nor have I ever used it - so clearly not promoting it. Everything I stated in the Wikipedia is clear fact and referenced. Wikipedia is a historical fact site. According to the Register.co.uk and another tier 1 media source FossBytes, earlier last month AiroAV identified a dangerous malware variant spread via the Adobe Flash Plugin that undermines the security of Mac users by re-writing Google and Bing search results and turning innocent computers into a reverse proxy that's used for malicious activity. This is not PR, rather HISTORICAL FACT and in the future, such reference on Wikipedia could prove invaluable for security researchers to follow up on.

All I stated in the Wikipedia was reference to the company as reported on Crunchbase (this helps malware researchers cooperate to find other coders who identified the malware variants) and the reference to the malware variant itself. How in the world can that be PR?

Finally, I was in Prague at Hackathon last month hanging out with Brian (the head of Wikipedia Security) and Sylvain (head of France's security). So please don't suspect me for exterior PR agendas, and in the name of community contribution, please do not support erasing the page or references that identify malware putting millions of MACOS users at risk.

So many now that I've stated my case, you can explain how in the world you think my publication was PR? --Danielcohens (talk) 01:58, 6 July 2019 (UTC)

@Danielcohens: Your credentials have nothing to with whether a page is kept or deleted from Wikipedia, nor do they make you better than any other editor on the site. The core issue is that the company did not meet the general notability guideline of significant coverage in reliable sources that are independent of the subject. The linked articles discuss the company in only a passing mention, which does not satisfy the significant coverage guideline and thus the article, having little encylopedic substance only served to publicize the company. It may be helpful to see what Wikipedia is not to potentially further understand why it was not appropriate for the company to have its own article. It was also improperly created in mainspace after having been denied at Articles for Creation. Being an expert in the field and hanging out in real life at Wiki events and with Wiki staffers is not a substitute for understanding the process of the website. Etzedek24 (I'll talk at ya) (Check my track record) 19:41, 6 July 2019 (UTC)

My only purpose of mentioning my credentials (in security) and even going to Hackathon is to ensure I'm not some PR guy cause the majority of people who arrive to both learn and contribute to Wikipedia are techies (as oppose to PR people). My education and work is security related only, but with and without connection to identifying and publicizing vulnerabilities, the purpose is raising awareness and community contribution. With no relation whatsoever to this subject, if you look at my edit committed a week ago, you can see it has nothing to do with PR, rather just updating an existing wikipedia with international news coinciding with the cancellation of a European countries democratic elections. As for this specific publication, I was not the original author. I read an article on the Register.co.uk of the virus and then started checking out the company. Google revealed a previous publication of the company here on Wikipedia which was up for speedy-deletion and subsequently erased. To me that publication appeared like PR. But I assure you that was not me publishing, nor my intention when I re-created with the proper references to Fossilebyte and the Register's article.

So was just surprised that I'd be suspect of PR for something where my intentions were only pure. In general, there are various viruses and malware (i.e. Stuxnet ) that have their own pages for both researchers and computer users. I didn't see this company mentioned a name for the virus so I mentioned them. But make no mistake I don't honestly care about the company, rather only the significance of identifying the manipulation of Google and Bing search results as that is synonymous with cloaking and fake news, etc. Anyway, just wanted to clarify my intentions. My best. --Danielcohens (talk) 20:35, 6 July 2019 (UTC)

Chahat Pandey[edit]

i have added some more information on this article based on your guidelines, see if this time the meets your demands.

Speedy deletion nomination of Chahat Pandey[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 Chahat Pandey 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 person, a group of people, an individual animal, an organization (band, club, company, etc.), web content, or an organized event that 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 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.

Airo Security (AiroAV)[edit]

Hi Etzedek24, Thanks for your message. I'm wondering why do the notability of Airo security is not enough, compared to other similar security companies the coverage seems at the same extent. In a practical manner, what kind of coverage is necessary? Please make it perfectly clear and elaborate as much as you can (for example - 'only security articles or news that are particularly covering the company are considered as significant coverage' ). Thank you for your assistance! Lidorga

[edit]

Hi, just wanted to let you know I'm going to remove the PROD from Jeannine Bailliu as the article was created by a student, not a paid editor. Many students learn to edit Wikipedia through the classroom assignment, and few continue to do so afterwards, explaining the pattern of edits. If you want to nominate the article for deletion, go ahead, but I just wanted to let you know that the editor is definitively not a paid editor. I'll post the same thing on the article talk page. Elysia (Wiki Ed) (talk) 19:48, 8 July 2019 (UTC)

Kareem Khubchandani[edit]

I removed your prod tag, because this deletion outside of WP:AfD might be controversial. Bearian (talk) 19:59, 8 July 2019 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Thank you. The nomination was confusing, even though you appear to have been correct that they are not notable. E.M.Gregory (talk) 10:40, 11 July 2019 (UTC)

New page reviewer permission[edit]

I've removed it. I've seen you too often mistagging articles.--Bbb23 (talk) 00:52, 15 July 2019 (UTC)

@Bbb23: Oh, I'm sorry, and this is this first I've heard of it? I'm not a mind-reader, Bbb. Etzedek24 (I'll talk at ya) (Check my track record) 00:56, 15 July 2019 (UTC)
A couple of recent examples in speedy tagging. You tagged James Baillieu as a G11. First, I'm not sure why you were even reviewing an article that was created over three months ago. Usually an article that is "established", if it has a promotional issue, can either be (1) slapped with an advert tag or, better, (2) edited to remove any promotional material. However, in this instance, the article couldn't possibly be considered a G11, and your action demonstrated a lack of understanding of the tag. Second, you tagged Kankrej, Gujarat, a place article, as a G2. What on earth made you think it a test page? It too was created months ago. Place articles are almost never taggable unless you can demonstrate it's a hoax. In this case, it certainly isn't a G2. Besides the recent mistagging, I've noticed that you often prod articles that are removed, and you often send articles to AfD that are kept. At least in one instance you actually withdrew your nomination because of the keep votes. I'm sorry to remove your permission because I can see you've been working very hard at curating articles, but I think you need to reflect more on what each tag means, when they are used, and whether they are applicable than you apparently have before you plunged in. The same is true for prodding and AfD. BTW, your ping didn't work. For a ping to work, you have to sign at the same time as you ping. If you sign it as a separate edit, no notification is made.--Bbb23 (talk) 05:47, 15 July 2019 (UTC)

Churaliya hai tumne jo dil jo removal[edit]

Hello! I’m Nyantiaz, the person who created that page - I feel it was unfair that the page was just removed and turned into a redirect with no discussion, no notice, whatsoever. I feel this was unfair and unnecessary because there are many other song articles just like this one, and with NO discussion or notice given to me, the article creator, I feel suddenly deleting the article and just making a redirect with NO talk or notice at all was unfair. I would’ve liked at least a discussion or a sign that you were going to do this, and we could talk about the article’s significance or at least notify me. I feel this is unfair and just had to leave a message addressing my concerns. Please respond back. Nyantiaz (talk) 02:47, 15 July 2019 (UTC)

G12 speedy[edit]

Hi - just a small request when you nominate a page for WP:G12 speedy deletion. When you put the URL of the page in where the copyrighted text comes from, please include the HTTP or HTTPS portion of the URL at the beginning. This is required so that the copyvios report link will display. Thanks. --Drm310 🍁 (talk) 12:41, 15 July 2019 (UTC)
