The Ideal Scout[edit]

Good job, creating The Ideal Scout. It was deserving of its own article, and doing so nicely cleaned up the R. Tait McKenzie article. BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 00:25, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Beach Bunny Swimwear[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 Beach Bunny Swimwear 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 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 "Click here to 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, you can place a request here. Talpatra (talk) 14:59, 21 March 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Girl Scouts Eastern Washington & Northern Idaho[edit]

Hello Evrik. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Girl Scouts Eastern Washington & Northern Idaho, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: None of the reasons for G6 appear to be met.

Chickasaw Council - Redirect Article Comment[edit]

Wikipedia:List of Wikipedians by article count[edit]

Fisheaters.com[edit]

Thanks for the heads-up about what's going on on the Blacklist page. I don't get this, though. I don't understand why they have it in for the Fisheaters website. It's the only traditional site like it on the itnernet, it's been around forever, it gets used by priests, gets used in RCIA classes, has been cited in books. Something isn't right here. Will you go to the Whitelist page and argue for an unblocking? The URL is: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki_talk:Spam-whitelist#Fisheaters.com_.28One_Page.29_-_One_Article:_Entry_.22Traditional_Catholicism.22 Thanks! Schoemann (talk) 11:34, 1 January 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, Evrik. Something really shaky is going on. Check this out: the woman who runs Fisheaters says this about her site and Wikipedia: go to Fisheaters.com/wikipedia2.html And now Chabad has 2,118 links from Wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:LinkSearch&limit=500&offset=2000&target=http%3A%2F%2F*.Chabad.org Why would they allow 2,118 links from Chabad but not one from a traditional Catholic website, and that because they say it "spammed" Wiki (when, if what the Fisheaters lady is saying is true, there were no rules against adding links to your own website!)? Does Wikipedia have a serious Catholic problem? It seems that way, and I'm starting to get angry about it. I don't know if you're Catholic or not or whether you have a dog in this fight, but even if you're not and you don't, simple fairness demands something be done about this.

This is kind of scary if you stop and think about it. Wikipedia is the biggest thing on the internet, the first thing people see if they use Google to search for anything, and it seems to be very anti-Catholic and very pro-Hassidic. This makes me want to see how Israel-Palestine entries are handled. Schoemann (talk) 13:37, 3 January 2015 (UTC)

Eric Berg[edit]

Restored here. I've changed "national" to US since we are not all Americans, and removed unacceptable YouTube and Amazon "references". Note that his own website/publications are not neutral and should be used with caution. Some of your other refs may not be independent verifiable sources as defined by the link.


Purely as a style thing, there shouldn't be a space between the punctuation and the ref following it, or between multiple refs Jimfbleak - talk to me? 07:20, 3 January 2015 (UTC)

Resurrection of Southern California Task Force[edit]

After moving from Los Angeles County to Kern County to San Luis Obispo County, I am finally realizing that there is life in California outside of L.A. and San Francisco, where I lived and grew up. Oh, I have also lived in San Diego, San Bernardino, San Joaquin, Yolo and Sacramento counties, and I earned my undergraduate degree in Riverside County. I am trying to breathe life into the Southern California Task Force, and I hope you will join me. Could you visit our list of participants at the other end of this link and update your description of what you are interested in doing for us, assuming that you still want to be in the mix, that is.

pot calling kettle black[edit]

So as to avoid an edit war on this article, let's discuss it here or on the article's talk page. I cannot find mention of hypocrisy for this proverb/idiom in standard reference works: Brewer, Roget, Oxford Dictionary of Proverbs. Looking up hypocrisy, I find it listed in Roget under "deception" with reference to different idioms: a wolf in sheep's clothing and a whited sepulchre. There is a different between pretending to be what one is not and accusing someone of the very faults that one possesses. From the point of view of format, discussion of psychological projection and any alternative meaning properly belongs in the body of the article, not the lede. The burden of proof rests on you and requires a scholarly reference, not the sort of opinion piece you have supplied. Sweetpool50 (talk) 06:56, 26 September 2019 (UTC) The reference in question:

  • Waldman, Katy (2014-12-22). "Is It Kosher to Talk About the "Pot Calling the Kettle Black"?". Slate. Retrieved 2019-02-03. This saying, which personifies kitchenware in order to make a point about hypocrisy, means "to criticize someone for a fault you also possess."

Rollback abuse[edit]

Your use of rollback to revert my CSD tags is unacceptable. — JJMC89(T·C) 03:55, 27 October 2019 (UTC)

I just read your note on my talk page. I was slightly confused at first, because while I did rollback your mass tagging of:

When I used the tool, it was because I saw your widespread edits as misguided editor and were unhelpful to the encyclopedia. I know the rules. I had thought I left a note here Talk:Greater New York Councils. However, the comments I had thought were there are not there now. In any case, I could have "undone" them, or gone back to an earlier version ... and now I have left my comments on the talk page, and will now go address them here, Wikipedia:Files_for_discussion#October_27. Thanks. --evrik (talk) 17:22, 30 October 2019 (UTC)

You should know better – I'm an admin, not some misguided editor. Five files is not widespread either. I typically review 60–100 non-free files per day and tag about ~15% for deletion.
Also this is the second time you have modified one of my FFD nominations. Don't do that. — JJMC89(T·C) 04:17, 31 October 2019 (UTC)

WHAT THE FUCK!!![edit]

How dare you convert an article (Lotus throne) to the appalling sfn style, in total breach of WP:CITEVAR, without leaving any hint of of what you are doing in edit summaries. This is seriously bad behaviour, & you should be blocked. Johnbod (talk) 16:54, 12 January 2020 (UTC)

Johnbod, I suggest you read up on WP:NPA. Your messages here and elsewhere are troubling; from what I can tel Evrik did what they felt was best for the article, which is perfectly acceptable. That you don't like it is not reason to insult them and threaten them with a block (which no admin would even consider anyway). Primefac (talk) 10:54, 13 January 2020 (UTC)
  • I'm also puzzled as to what's so "appalling" about {{sfn}}. It gives linkage from the cites to the refs, for one thing. If you object to the use of years, then that's {{sfnp}} anyway, not {{sfn}}. Andy Dingley (talk) 20:35, 13 January 2020 (UTC)

Try it again?[edit]

Quick reminder for you and any talk-page stalkers: Please don't change the initial list marker types (colons, asterisks or hash signs) when replying. In a discussion, do ☑Y this best practice:

* Support.  I like this idea.  [[User:Example]] 
** Question:  What do you like about it?  [[User:Example 2]]

or ☑Y this acceptable practice:

* Support.  I like this idea.  [[User:Example]] 
*: Question:  What do you like about it?  [[User:Example 2]] 

but ☒N don't do this (switch type from bullet list to description list):

* Support.  I like this idea.  [[User:Example]] 
:* Question:  What do you like about it?  [[User:Example 2]] 

Changing the initial (leftmost) list markers makes bad HTML and noise for people who are using screen readers. The rightmost one is the marker that you get to choose. The first ones should match the previous line's markers exactly. I know it's tricky – you see experienced editors getting it wrong all the time.

Old Kia Kima[edit]

Hi Evrik. I wanted to reach out since you seem to be an active user on Wikiproject:Scouting. Would you mind weighing in on an issue that's brewing over on Old Kia Kima? It's beginning to border on an edit war, and I think an outside third-party could help. The page's edit history and Talk:Old Kia Kima#Ownership should illustrate the issue. Thanks!

  • @Vincent60030: If I had not done so much work on the article, I would have passed it today. I encourage you to review it and pass it if you can.

Also, your talk page is getting a little long. If you do not mind, would you like me to assist setting up auto archiving for you? VincentLUFan (talk) (Kenton!) 17:03, 17 September 2020 (UTC)

  • I'm okay with the page as it is. Thanks. --evrik (talk) 17:07, 17 September 2020 (UTC)

Could you please at least explain why you added a DYK again thing there instead of just leaving it like that? I feel invisible without any communication.

  • I've tried responding twice, but have been "edit conflict"ed twice. --evrik (talk) 17:08, 17 September 2020 (UTC)
I mean explaining on the DYK nomination page why it needs a re-review so quickly. @Gerda Arendt: would have informed me if she has done anything. Also if you have offered to help her address these issues please at least SAY SOMETHING on the nominations page, and not just slap a red icon. VincentLUFan (talk) (Kenton!) 17:12, 17 September 2020 (UTC)
The icon I place passes no judgement. Sorry I didn't write enough. --evrik (talk) 17:14, 17 September 2020 (UTC)
I accept that, but I am still very clueless when there has been no issues about my reviewing and me awaiting a response from the nominator and there needs to be a review out of nowhere. Things can't be rushed. VincentLUFan (talk) (Kenton!) 17:15, 17 September 2020 (UTC)
Hi there, I may have misunderstood a little, but next time do let me know on my talk page that I can take a look at the nomination again if it can be passed because a red icon is going to instead invite other reviewers to butt in which is really awkward especially in this situation.
