File:Ronald Markman Mukfa Gate.jpeg[edit]

Please restore this image as we now have an OTRS permission ticket for this image. Thanks in advance. ww2censor (talk) 10:37, 15 March 2019 (UTC)

Hi Ww2censor. I've restored the file, and I can see there is permission for the photograph, but is there also permission for the sculpture depicted (i.e. has Ronald Markman also consented to the CC-BY-SA-4.0)? -FASTILY 23:38, 15 March 2019 (UTC)

Quarry query[edit]

Hi. We talked at Wikipedia:Bots/Requests for approval/DannyS712 bot 10 about you writing a query to track orphans with incoming links. Since that discussion was closed, I wanted to post here to make sure you hadn't forgotten. No time pressure, but I was just wondering if you had made any progress? Thanks so much, --DannyS712 (talk) 23:54, 15 March 2019 (UTC)

Hi DannyS712. I haven't forgotten, it's still queued on my (very long) to-do list. Do you have an example of a SQL query you tried? It might take less time for me to help you debug it as opposed to me creating one from scratch. -FASTILY 08:52, 16 March 2019 (UTC)

Scope of CSD U5[edit]

Hi Fastily. I was going through Category:Stale userspace drafts a few days ago and tagging inappropriate pages for speedy deletion. I noticed that two of the pages I tagged as G11s, User:InvisibleInkStudios/Hovercarracing and User:Grahmlyon.sabesoft/sandbox/SabeSoft, you deleted as U5s. Would you help me get a better understanding of the scope of the U5 criterion? These two pages don't cleanly fit into what is described in WP:NOTWEBHOST, in my opinion—they're clearly attempts at mainspace articles, albeit attempts that I considered to be promotional. Lord Bolingbroke (talk) 21:09, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

Hi Lord Bolingbroke. These are both userspace spam. Since both accounts have virtually no other edits outside their userspace, I consider these U5-eligible as well. -FASTILY 21:33, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
I get the sense that U5 is something of a catch-all for inappropriate userspace content, not just the specific things listed in WP:NOTWEBHOST. Is that accurate? Lord Bolingbroke (talk) 21:47, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
No. Spam is part of NOTWEBHOST. The fifth bullet directs readers to WP:UPNOT, wherein "Promotional and advocacy material and links" is described as content inappropriate for user pages. -FASTILY 21:54, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
That makes sense. Thanks for clarifying. Lord Bolingbroke (talk) 21:59, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
I was confused initially because the wording of U5 ("writings, information, discussions, and/or activities not closely related to Wikipedia's goals") seems extremely broad, but WP:NOTWEBHOST, which it links to, seems much narrower in scope. WP:UNOT makes the U5 criterion a lot more concrete to me. Lord Bolingbroke (talk) 22:11, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
No worries, glad I could help clarify things. Nice username by the way. -FASTILY 22:17, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
Ha, thank you. I've had second thoughts about my username before—I hope that people take it as silly rather than pretentious :) Lord Bolingbroke (talk) 22:59, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

TfD deletions[edit]

Hi, it seems that you are deleting certain templates without closing their respective TfDs, e.g. Template:US Virgin Islands governor election, 2006. FWIW, I've found the XFDcloser to be a very convenient tool for closing and processing XfDs. Cheers, King of ♠ 01:21, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
