Signpost Arbitration interview request[edit]

Excuse me. I am lead writer for the Signpost's "Arbitration Report" and am wondering if you would be interested in answering some interviews questions as an outgoing Arbitrator. The questions will be asked through email, unless answering them here would be a more suitable choice. GamerPro64 18:57, 1 January 2016 (UTC)

@GamerPro64: Thanks for the offer, but no thanks. I stepped down early to do more article work - I'd rather spend my time on that than on an arbcom retrospective. However I'm sure you'll get a couple of the outgoing Arbs to comment, so all the best with the interviews. And thanks to you and everyone else who works in the Signpost - I haven't agreed with every article but it's always a worthwhile read. -- Euryalus (talk) 12:57, 2 January 2016 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Thanks for your service, Euryalus. Back to your ships now. Drmies (talk) 05:02, 2 January 2016 (UTC)
@Drmies: Thanks, that's very nice of you. In passing I'm already there, and it looks a lot more fun than whatever you all are doing over at ACN. -- Euryalus (talk) 05:11, 2 January 2016 (UTC)
  • Me? Doing something? You must be mistaken. It's probably Kelapstick, who doesn't have a real job like normal people. Drmies (talk) 05:17, 2 January 2016 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Hi Euryalus. I've been wanting to post some thank you notices to the outgoing Arbs, but circumstances have prevented me from doing so until now. Anyway, I thought I'd drop a quick note to say thank you for your hard work on the committee. I was pleased to see a fresh face applying for Arbcom, and think you did an excellent job in a tough year. Thanks for your hard work. WormTT(talk) 14:34, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

Not my article (see below, I was just the OTRS guy). Pinging Rosemaryujoh as the account with the largest role in editing and transferring the userspace draft. -- Euryalus (talk) 08:14, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

Keep This Wikipedia Pages has been on for 10 years, but after 10 years later demoted to User Draft because of improper format and lack of references" Now some references have been added.... I believe as a artist grows so do their enemies... Yameka (talk) 08:51, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

@CNMall41: Thanks for the notification but I didn't create this article - I'm just the OTRS volunteer who userfied a requested draft. Pinging Yameka and Benleg4000 as the accounts with the biggest role in editing this page. -- Euryalus (talk)|
Sorry. I will send a "thank you" card to Twinkle (damn this automation)! --CNMall41 (talk) 07:09, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
No problems. -- Euryalus (talk) 08:16, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

@CNMall41: Thanks for the nomination. Well, I only improved the page and also added some references.

Actually, the Natalac Sheldon Martinez Davis page was created long before March 18, 2010, (about 10 years ago).

Now this wikipedia policy says: Unsourced biographies of living people (BLPs) created after March 18, 2010, can be proposed for deletion using a special proposed deletion process. Refer to these 2 links

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Proposed_deletion_of_biographies_of_living_people

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Biographies_of_living_persons

So, it means, the Natalac Sheldon Martinez Davis shouldn't be deleted since it was created before March 18, 2010.

Aside from that, I've improved the page and added some referencesBenleg4000 (talk) 10:17, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

Natalac[edit]

Can I ask you why, when you created User:Natalac/draft, you copy pasted rather than move the deleted article at Nat (rapper)? That action lost the history of the page and it seems to me to be a breach of the licensing terms. The point is moot now as the article has just been deleted yet again, but I would be inclined to merge histories just in case it ever gets undeleted or userfied again. SpinningSpark 12:19, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for the message. Short answer is I don't remember. One possibility, seeing as they contacted me via OTRS is that they did not actually link the two articles but simply forwarded me a draft directly and asked for it to be userfied for them. Alternatively, I may have made a human error and forgotten to merge the two pages. Or there may be some other explanation currently buried in the depths of old OTRS tickets.
To explore this further I would have to go back through the tickets from 2014 and spend some time doing a chronology. And as the article has (rightly) been deleted again, I agree with you that this seems a bit moot. If it was indeed a human error then please accept my apologies. -- Euryalus (talk) 20:16, 3 February 2016 (UTC)
That wasn't meant as a criticism, nor do I need you to dig out the old archives. I just wanted to confirm I wasn't missing something before doing a history merge (...and maybe I was hoping you would do that so I didn't have to bother, but it's done now). SpinningSpark 20:57, 3 February 2016 (UTC)
Oh no problems, it was an entirely fair question. Thanks for doing the merge too. -- Euryalus (talk)<
