Proposed deletion of The righteous perishes[edit]

Hello, Francis Schonken. I wanted to let you know that I’m proposing an article that you started, The righteous perishes, for deletion because I don't think it meets our criteria for inclusion. If you don't want the article deleted:

  1. edit the page
  2. remove the text that looks like this: {{proposed deletion/dated...}}
  3. save the page

Also, be sure to explain why you think the article should be kept in your edit summary or on the article's talk page. If you don't do so, it may be deleted later anyway.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. TheLongTone (talk) 15:11, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 3[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Tenebrae, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Miserere and Our Father (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Thanks. And have a nice day. NickCT (talk) 18:36, 26 April 2015 (UTC)

John Collier (reformer) changed to John Collier (sociologist)[edit]

Hello, Francis Schonken! I guess you read my comment on John Collier's talk page about John Collier (reformer)? I'm happy someone else wants to think about this. After more thought, I think your edit is good! FYI, I also tried to ask for guidance on this page Sharp-shinned.hawk (talk) 20:37, 3 May 2015 (UTC)

Persondata removal, data preservation[edit]

Hi, Francis. I saw your comment on the persondata-bot-removal discussion page. The removal of the persondata templates is going to happen, whether it happens today, tomorrow or next month. My only concern at this point is that as much of the accurate persondata information be preserved and transferred to the Wikidata profiles as possible. I have taken the liberty to notify a number of the WikiProjects with which I have an association regarding the pending persondata removal, and urging concerned editors to manually transfer accurate persondata to Wikidata. I would be grateful if you would do the same. Here's an example of a notice I left earlier today: [1]. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 16:05, 3 June 2015 (UTC)

CFD closure[edit]

Can you get me a list of what needs and doesn't need to be done? When the nominator says "(i.e. for all genetic language groups)" but doesn't bother to post a single notice anywhere nor inform anyone, it's a puzzle as to what was actually intended. I'm leaning towards reversing the whole mess and re-listing it. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 21:05, 12 June 2015 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of String Trio, D 581 (Schubert)[edit]

Hello Francis Schonken,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged String Trio, D 581 (Schubert) for deletion, because it doesn't appear to contain any encyclopedic content. Take a look at our suggestions for essential content in short articles to learn what should be included.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. Whalestate (talk) 22:32, 21 June 2015 (UTC)

Adding a new option[edit]

Hello! Sorry to bother you, I have a quick question if you don't mind:
I noticed you added another option to Wikipedia:Village pump (policy)/Archive 121#MOS:IDENTITY clarification. I was considering doing this to another discussion. I was wondering if there was a guideline or anything special I needed to do or be aware of concerning this practice.Godsy(TALKCONT) 03:43, 22 June 2015 (UTC)

RfC: red links in navboxes[edit]

Francis, would you accept a revised red link guideline that requires a minimum of three blue links in a navbox to existing stand-alone articles or lists, with at least 50% of all included links within the navbox being blue, coupled with a very explicit clarification of the existing "succession" and "complete set" exceptions for navboxes? Personally, I think that would be an extremely reasonable compromise. If I can get 10 committed supporters, I'm ready to start lobbying previous !voters (not a violation of WP:CANVASS) in favor of compromise. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 03:01, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Enforcement[edit]

The only "involved" parties in Handpolk's petition to reduce his topic ban are Handpolk and Euryalus, the admin who imposed the topic ban. Everyone else commenting is just offering their opinion on whether this action should be taken, that is, they are uninvolved in the administration of the topic ban.
The case wasn't properly formatted when it was initially posted and I'm sure leaving these extra sections in was an oversight. Liz Read! Talk! 19:52, 30 June 2015 (UTC)


Hi[edit]

Just thought I would introduce myself. I am impressed that you, in Belgium, know more about Piper than me; I (in New York) never heard of him until his "death". Interesting. Yours, Quis separabit? 22:20, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

BLPN close[edit]

Hi Francis,

Can you take another look at your BLPN close here? I think if you look closely you'll find that the discussion at RSN is actually about a different source and different content (it's about a specific source, used in a different paragraph of the article) than the discussion at BLPN (which is specifically about whether the ADL's opinion of the article subject is notable). The two conversations are (as far as I'm aware), unrelated. We were all rather hoping that the close at BLPN would assess the consensus on the ADL point (if there is one). Thanks! Fyddlestix (talk) 15:56, 8 August 2015 (UTC)

I see you've updated the close, thanks very much! Fyddlestix (talk) 17:11, 8 August 2015 (UTC)

Blanket reverts[edit]

I'm making an honest effort to avoid conflicts with you (and we have a long history of them). Your firehose-like use of reversion of all changes made in an edit or series of edits, instead of reversing the one particular thing you're objecting to, has a lot to do with why these conflicts arise, and we've been over this many times before (for several years now). Please change your approach to this. It's annoying to other editors, and comes across as combative. It is clearly counterproductive to revert basic typo fixing and other copyedits in the course of getting at a specific unrelated issue, as in this case. You eliminated the addition of a syntactically required comma while reversing an unrelated wording change, which you could have undone simply by editing the page and changing the words back without eliminating the comma.  — SMcCandlish ¢ ≽ʌⱷ҅ʌ≼  16:08, 15 August 2015 (UTC)

PS: On a re-read, this comes across as more "fist-shaking" than I intended, even after editing it not sound fist-shaking. My point is to try to open a compromise dialogue about approach, not to berate you.  — SMcCandlish ¢ ≽ʌⱷ҅ʌ≼  20:58, 15 August 2015 (UTC)

Re: Online music community[edit]

Should this article be tagged somehow to inform readers of its relation to the Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Music community discussion?
