Please tag all the articles for deletion to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of international cricket five-wicket hauls at the Riverside Ground instead. It's not closed. ImmortalWizard(chat) 22:45, 17 January 2019 (UTC)

@ImmortalWizard: If you wish to add further pages to the existing nomination, you are free to do so yourself, providing you make sure to link back to them at the AfD discussion page, per Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion#How_to_nominate_multiple_related_pages_for_deletion. --Finngall talk 23:03, 17 January 2019 (UTC)

Bir Tawil - Kingdom of the Yellow Mountain[edit]

Thank you so much. There was no vandalism, we recall facts with documents, Bir Tawil is now under the rule of the Yellow Mountain Kingdom. There I sat in the United Nations for that. All Arab newspapers have published it Asad0152 (talk) 21:44, 20 May 2019 (UTC)

@Asad0152: Wikipedia is not for things you and your friends made up in school one day. --Finngall talk 21:48, 20 May 2019 (UTC)

@Finngall talk: Oops!!?, I am a media person. This news is widespread in the Middle East and I have thousands of news links. Asad0152 (talk) 22:06, 20 May 2019 (UTC)

@Asad0152: If the "news [was] widespread" and there were "thousands of news links", I would have been able to find them myself. Even the most rudimentary of Google searches shows that your "Kingdom" is no different from the numerous other claims on the territory as a micronation (noted in the article itself), and should be taken no more seriously. If you wish to contribute positively to other areas of the encyclopedia, you are welcome to do so, but further attempts to add false information will be reverted. --Finngall talk 22:37, 20 May 2019 (UTC)

My edit is not disruptive.[edit]

My edit is not disruptive. Theta persei was registered under the name HooLooLoo-Dd.

There is a registration number and there is evidence that it has been registered under this name. The first few edits I made I didn’t properly cited but in the most recent one I did properly cite it so I would like for you to stop removing the edit. Kriliokonc (talk) 22:59, 24 June 2019 (UTC)

@Kriliokonc: Star naming is handled by the International Astronomical Union, as Lithopsian has already noted. The IAU has no connection with any "name a star" company. *I* could give a star a name, put in a book, publish it, and send it to the Library of Congress and it wouldn't mean a thing to the IAU.
Also, please see Wikipedia's policy on edit warring, particularly the three-revert rule. Your addition to the article has been reverted by no fewer than four different editors, and persisting to add your star name to the article without further discussion on the article's talk page will be considered to be disruptive editing and put you at risk of being blocked even if your claim was true. Please cease and desist from editing the article at this time. If you must continue pressing on, please open a discussion on the article's talk page rather than editing the article itself. Thank you. --Finngall talk 23:52, 24 June 2019 (UTC)
I see this but the IAU does not own the universe nor do they own the star. Their name is no more important than mine. There is documented information regarding the name that was given to the star on their part and on my part. The name should be recognized. Kriliokonc (talk) 00:04, 25 June 2019 (UTC)
@Kriliokonc: Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, and as such the information therein needs to be based on reliable sources. The IAU is a reliable source. I think you'll have a hard time convincing more experienced editors here that your star registry is a reliable source for the name of any star other than those already widely recognized by the astronomical community at large. Feel free to file a query at WP:RSN if you wish to try, but don't get your hopes up. --Finngall talk 01:42, 25 June 2019 (UTC)

Teenage Fairytale Dropouts vandal[edit]

Hello, I recently caught this IP that I think is the Teenage Fairytale Dropouts vandal, similar to what you've encountered before: User: I've reverted edits and given warnings, but I'm not quite sure what I'm supposed to do from here, since this is my first time dealing with sockpuppets. Can you please take care of it and let me know what I should do should I encounter this again? Ganbaruby! (talk)

@Ganbaruby: Yeah, that's our buddy TFD all right. Just revert and report to WP:AIV. TFD doesn't post to talk pages and to my knowledge has never used an edit summary, engaged in conversation, or responded in any way to warnings, so don't bother with those. Just report them once you're sure it's them and let the admins do the rest, then wait for them to get a new IP address to continue the eternal game of Whac-A-Mole. Thanks for the assistance, and let me know if you have other questions. Take care. --Finngall talk 15:19, 31 July 2019 (UTC)

Help with logo of Alliance Francaise Washington DC[edit]

Dear Finngall,

I need help with the changes made to the Alliance Francaise Washington DC page. I attempted to change the logo because the current one on the Wikipedia website is out of date. This was subsequently removed... Could you please let me know how I can change the logo?


@Yes You Can Consulting: Short answer: Don't. Longer answer: It's quite obvious that your mission here is not to build the encyclopedia, but to promote your client. Per the Terms of Use which you agreed to upon creating your account, you are prohibited from making paid edits on behalf of a client without declaring your affiliation, and all editors are strongly discouraged from directly editing articles for which a conflict of interest exists whether they are being paid to do so or not. Furthermore, your account name is in violation of the username policy, which prohibits corporate accounts and usernames which imply shared use.
Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, not an advertising medium, and regardless of what happens with the YYCC account I strongly encourage you to cease and desist editing here if your only purpose here is for advertising and promotion. --Finngall talk 18:52, 2 August 2019 (UTC)
