Why you delete Major-Articles?[edit]

Why you delete Major articles? You delete the artist King TMD for copyright violations! Check MTV and or whats the problem? Its not a copyright violation! GEVEN1 (talk) 16:17, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

Maria Desylla-Kapodistria[edit]

Dear Garion, before you deleted this page I wish we could have had a conversation. First when I wrote the page this wikipedian was made aware by a bot that there seemed to be an infringement so he changed the wording, so therefore the designation was made before the changes which should have been made evident from the editorial history. If more changes needed to be made could you not have informed me so appropriate edits could have been done. Can you restore it and then we can make the necessary moves together? It is the subject of the article which is worthy the first female mayor in the history of the modern state of Greece and the great grand-daughter of its first head of state. Looking forward to your reply.Masterknighted (talk) 04:00, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

Really now if the material from the violation was removed and the source material remained in a way which it was altered so as that it was no longer a violation then it would not have to be removed becasue properly citing a source is not a violtaion. So I would appreciate if you would repost it with the violation removed so that I can improve it where it needs to be done. If somebody swipes a pack of gum you do not shoot them you instruct them not to do that again, you in effect rehabilitate them. This article just needed to be corrected.Masterknighted (talk) 14:28, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

Subway Surfers[edit]

I've been looking through the page history and been seeing a lot of addition of unsourced content. I think it would be a good idea to put Semi-Protect into Pending Changes so every edit that comes in could be subject to review. This would reduce unsourced content from coming. ///EuroCarGT 03:43, 1 September 2013 (UTC)

Now that the main problem user has been indef'd, can you put it back to semi? We're not supposed to be using PC2 at all. Jackmcbarn (talk) 18:23, 2 September 2013 (UTC)


I just want to let you know I'm assuming some users on the Subway Surfers article for sock puppetry, for abusing multiple accounts, illegit reasons and disruptively editing. So I put them up on SPI. The SPI is at Wikipedia:Sockpuppet_investigations/Amazzing_Me_King. ///EuroCarGT 21:43, 1 September 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for December 4[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited The Running Man (novel), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Standoff (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 (seriously)[edit]

Thanks for taking out the copyrighted lists from the SF and Fantasy 100 novels lists. I had created them a while back, and was not aware that such lists are copyrighted. oddly enough, i had just discovered this last month, but i didnt have the heart to remove the lists myself. i was also just a little unsure of the rule, and didnt know if i was overly cautious or overly lenient on myself. anyway, im glad you did this, now they are clean and guilt free for me.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 21:26, 3 January 2014 (UTC)

You're welcome, Mercurywoodrose :) Garion96 (talk) 09:02, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

Copyright restriction of best lists[edit]

Hi. Can you provide a source for the copyright protection of lists such as David Pringle's 100 best novels? We should know precisely what constitutes a violation and avoiding deleting such lists entirely. There must be thousands of such lists here, maybe 10000 including best players of every sports season. --P64 (talk) 19:47, 4 January 2014 (UTC)

See Wikipedia:Copyright_in_lists#Copyrightability_of_content for when a list can be posted or not. Garion96 (talk) 09:05, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

Most influential books[edit]

Can we add something like... "the list has torah, upanishads,(more 2-3 names) as one of the most influential books." Bladesmulti (talk) 12:00, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

That is no problem. Just the complete list is not allowed. See Time 100: The Most Important People of the Century, The 100: A Ranking of the Most Influential Persons in History, and Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. Garion96 (talk) 19:51, 8 January 2014 (UTC)
Since you have proven that they are violation of copyright(if whole list copy+pasted again), I think you must delete all previous changes. You are a admin, and copyright watcher. Bladesmulti (talk) 13:05, 22 January 2014 (UTC)
It's not a requirement to purge a copyvio from from the history, although if not too difficult I always do it. Since this one is so easily to remove and the copyvio is not integrated in the text it doesn't need to be removed from history. Garion96 (talk) 19:15, 22 January 2014 (UTC)
I see, anyways, I got a question, can I copy+paste the table from this page? [1], can be used for Classical_element#Hinduism. I am not good at verifying the copyrights, but this writer is using the text from Ayurveda, written thousands of years ago. So thought of asking from you.

Science Fiction: The 100 Best Novels[edit]

is there any way we can remove the full list from the edit history of the article? that would stop anyone from casually adding back the list. if the publishers ever surrender copyright, we could uncover the list, so nothing would be lost. i was the original creator of the article, and created the list, before i understood that such lists are under copyright.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 14:48, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

Deleted "Jan Scully" Wikipedia Page - Looking to Create New Page[edit]

I am new to Wikipedia and looking to start a new page/article on "Jan Scully." When I searched for her, it shows a previous page was deleted by you due to copyright issues. Before I start a new one, it's suggested I contact the administrator who deleted the first page/article first. Jan Scully is the current Sacramento County District Attorney, so not sure if it's the same person.

Please advise on how I should proceed. Thank you!

Deleted "Jan Scully" Page - Creating New "Jan Scully" Page[edit]

Hi Garion - I am new to Wikipedia and looking to create a new page/article on "Jan Scully." When I searched the name, it shows there was a previous "Jan Scully" page that was deleted by you due to copyright issues. The results page says to contact the administrator who deleted the previous page. The Jan Scully I would like to create a page for is the current Sacramento County District Attorney Jan Scully, so I'm not sure it's the same person as the previous, deleted page.

Please advise. Thank you!
