Kendra Lust = (redacted)[edit]

Hello Gene, well, how can one define a "reliable source"? Let me clarify: my addition was based on a string of entries. Let me put them here:

(Redacted)

you can immediately see (numerous pictures!) that his wife is indeed Kendra Lust, pictures on his page make it obvious.

These three pieces of evidence combined look fully reliable to me.

Probably instead of citing only [1] I had to cite also [2] and [3]?

Of course there remains an ethical issue: she is an adult film actress and she doesn't make her real name open herself. So, even though now it seems quite clear what her real name is, maybe it still not 100% ethical to put her real name in the Wikipedia article!? If this is the case I certainly wouldn't insist on re-putting the info about her real name there. I do mean no disrespect, for sure. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Urbain.legrandier (talkcontribs) 20:43, 7 April 2017 (UTC)

  • @Urbain.legrandier: NONE of these "sources" are acceptable in Wikipedia. Wikipedia policies about living people WP:BLP says to respect the privacy of names of people in sensitive lines of work. Contentious information needs to be cited to reputable published sources. Self-published sources are note acceptable. Link #1 is a self-published blog meant to out people. Link #2 is a self-published death announcement with no proven link to the subject. Link #3 is user-generated Facebook content, no a reliable source. Please also note that BLP applies to all Wikipedia page spaces. Suggestion: let this go. • Gene93k (talk) 23:19, 7 April 2017 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Mohsen Milani[edit]

Hi Gene93k,

Rather than updating notices for Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Mohsen Milani, you can actually close it, since the nominator has withdrawn it. Thanks! X4n6 (talk) 21:25, 24 April 2017 (UTC)

  • @X4n6: Another editor got it first. I didn't notice it was withdrawn as I was sorting it. Sorry about that. • Gene93k (talk) 22:29, 24 April 2017 (UTC)

Requested to review newly added references for page Little Joe McLerran[edit]

Dear Gene93k,

I notice you support the deletion of the page Little Joe McLerran. I have added several references from the Tulsa World daily newspaper, the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame website, the Tulsa People monthly magazine and several others that support Little Joe's contribution to Blues Music in Oklahoma, in the USA and around the world. I feel if you look more closely you will agree that Little Joe McLerran deserves an article in Wikipedia. Although I am an avid user and supporter of Wikipedia, this my first attempt at being a contributor. I feel I have come a long way so far in building the page. I hope you will take another look at the page and change your mind.

Best regard,Robmclerran (talk) 14:58, 25 April 2017 (UTC)Robmclerran

Query regarding adding AfD entries onto discussion lists[edit]

Hi Gene93k, I have a query regarding an AfD (Lorenzo Chiesa). You included the debate on a couple of additional lists (rightly so). In one case - the list of Philosophy-related deletion discussions -comments made are not visible and I am not able to understand why or what needs doing to make them visible? They can be seen on all other discussion lists as well as the main / generic AfD page. Are you able to clarify why and what needs doing? Apologies if there is an obvious answer - maybe you can just point me in the right direction? Many thanks! Ananke83 (talk) 14:25, 9 May 2017 (UTC)

Hi Gene93k, I reached the same conclusion and have posted a shorter version of the same comment myself on the main page, so I don't think it is necessary - many thanks for your reply and offer of help!Ananke83 (talk) 10:52, 10 May 2017 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Jerry Cuomo[edit]

I would like to draft a new article on Jerry Cuomo that addresses the concerns raised. Where can I find the source of the deleted article? Or can the article be restored, such that it can be worked? THANKS Cuomogs (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 01:42, 11 May 2017 (UTC)

  • @Cuomogs: You can contact the contact the administrator who closed the previous AfD as delete (Juliancolton) and ask him to restore the article to draft space. That said, you appear to be the subject or are closely related to him. It is a bad idea to create a Wikipedia article about yourself. Finally, please consider editors' comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Jerry Cuomo. They considered the deleted article unsalvageable. • Gene93k (talk) 03:07, 11 May 2017 (UTC)

Transport in Dominica[edit]

Regarding the Transport in Dominica article I've made. There's a Template:Old prod full in the talk page. Not sure what happened there before, but it is a real, sourced article now. I get the template automatically applies from the previous deletion. This is a brand new article, and the subject matter is part of a well established series, so is there a way it can be removed? ৳€Ø฿€ƦȺ₡Ⱥƪ৳€Ø฿€ƦȺ₡Ⱥƪ 02:53, 17 June 2017 (UTC)

  • @Leoberacai: The previous version of Transport in Dominica was deleted by PROD. The {{old prod full}} tag tell editors (especially administrators) the the PROD was disputed and the article should not prodded again. You've written a decent article but the talk page is also there to note the significant milestones in the page history. It is not a reflection on the page in its present state. • Gene93k (talk) 03:31, 17 June 2017 (UTC)

Question[edit]

Hi, Gene93k - Is your notice a BOT or other form of auto notification? How do we get Wikipedia:WikiProject_Women_in_Red and Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Women on the list for deletion notifications when it's a woman-related article at AfD? Thanks in advance...Atsme📞📧 02:10, 17 July 2017 (UTC)

  • @Atsme: The deletion sorting, like the edit in question, is done by human editors. Elizabeth Esther is a special case, as the debate was reopened a day after it was closed. The archive bot took down the listings when the debate was closed. I just restored those deletion sorts, including the Women category. A bot detected the reopened debate for the WikiProject Women article alert. • Gene93k (talk) 20:33, 17 July 2017 (UTC)

Talk:2017 Weis Markets shooting[edit]

I'm a total novice at this Wikipedia thing but wanted to thank you for attempting to save this page. I do not agree that is should be deleted. It is historically relevant for many reasons and I'm afraid the proposal for deletion is being suggested due to cultural influences. Though an uncomfortable topic, the history of what occurred in Pennsylvania contributes to an overall picture of these type of events, a picture that might in some way work towards combatting them. I'm totally unfamiliar with the system but wanted to encourage you. I know my edit may not have been the best but the intent was to provide further recognition to the victims. Please let me know if you have any suggestions to me. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Fandangoforever (talkcontribs) 18:45, 21 July 2017 (UTC)

Reinstate Jesselynn Desmond page[edit]

It is a known fact that Jesselynn Desmond is a celebrity. She is the same person that you weren't sure was her in the newspaper for being inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame for being the loudest fan. In a google search with her name JESSELYNN DESMOND you will find she comes up in every single listing in the first 17 pages. There is no denying she needs her own page. She is in newspapers all around the world. Here are 24 pages that contribute to her bio and what she has done. France recognizes her as needing her own page as well: [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] She is in newspapers and magazines all around the world: People Magazine, Irish Independent, Electric Pictures, Electric Ticket: [7] She is an actress in 23 films and many TV shows: Flavor of Love [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] She is a music video director: [15] [16] She toured Europe performing with Emily Autumn: [17] She is a founding member of Lucent Dossier: [18] [19] Rotten TOmatoes: [20] She is a singer [21] and community leader She is a psychic: [22] She is a teacher: [23] She is a stand-up comedian: [24] She produces live shows all around the world: [25]

Listing AfDs on WikiProject Canada Deletion talks[edit]

Hello Gene93k - I see you've applied AfD tags to a number of articles recently, and that you've been dutifully adding the new AfD discussions to Wikipedia:WikiProject Deletion sorting/Canada. Unfortunately, the new AfDs have appeared in the wrong section of the list - they've appeared under "Canada proposed deletions", but new AfDs are to be listed just above that heading. I've moved the AfD listings to the correct section.

You're not alone with this - at least one other user has been doing the same thing, and they informed me that the new AfDs are being added by a tool she's using for delsorting. Is this the same situation with you? If so, what tool are you using?

Happy new year! PKT(alk) 14:15, 30 December 2017 (UTC)

Query about awards[edit]

Thank you for the pointer on the Grabby awards. I'm looking at a number of bio stubs, and I wonder if there's similar consensus on any of them:

If you could let me know, that would be great. --K.e.coffman (talk) 02:18, 22 February 2018 (UTC)

@K.e.coffman: IIRC, the last big debate about porn awards was 2014, and I did not directly participate. However from what I can see from AfD history:
  • GayVN Awards - gay equivalent of AVN Awards
  • Gay Erotic Video Awards - counts for nothing at AfD
  • Hot d'Or - has not been challenged since PORNBIO was tightened but at least one niche award winner has been deleted
  • Erotixxx Award - successor of Venus Award - Venus Award winners have been deleted at recent AfDs
That said, recent consensus has been that winning the award without good sources does not establish notability (e.g. Janet Jacme). I consider The Big Bad Wolfowitz to be the authority on this, though he takes a harder line on notability than I do. • Gene93k (talk) 04:54, 22 February 2018 (UTC)

02:16:10, 12 March 2018 review of submission by Dsflyerds[edit]


I am requesting a re-review because I don't agree with the reason for the declining of my article. I understand that you may feel that the reviews and articles I cited are from "unreliable" blogs and community sites but Run 8 is a small software in it's infancy and those communities and blogs are that keeps the news flowing though the community all sources cited get information directly from the Run 8 Developers in the form of news releases. Compared to other train simulators Run 8 shares a small part of the market share. With that being said there are no articles about Run 8 from major news institutions nor are there reviews from large companies that review games like IGN. I did some research on other train simulators on Wikipedia namely [[Train Simulator (Dovetail Games)] which has all but 2 links cited that are from their own websites. Yet my article is being rejected for the same exact issues. I respectfully request that you appeal the denial of my article as this article is important for the growth of the Run 8 Train simulator. If you are unable to appeal the denial please assist me in how to make the article suitable for the standards for a Wiki article.

Dsflyerds (talk) 02:16, 12 March 2018 (UTC)

  • @Dsflyerds: Notability in Wikipedia is generally shown by citations to mainstream media that show non-trivial coverage of the subject (see the general notability guideline). Please also see the Wikipedia guideline for reliable sources. In the case of video games, those media sources are sites like IGN. If I accept the submission in its current state, it is likely to be marked for deletion. The only thing that will fix the draft is to find better sources, and it is up to you to provide them. • Gene93k (talk) 02:48, 12 March 2018 (UTC)
  • As for Train Simulator (Dovetail Games), "what about article X?" is an argument to avoid in Wikipedia. That article is tagged for problems that need to be fixed. However, that game gets some coverage from IGN. • Gene93k (talk) 02:48, 12 March 2018 (UTC)
  • Finally, if you think the decline was wrong, please feel free to resubmit the draft for review so that another reviewer can evaluate the draft. • Gene93k (talk) 02:48, 12 March 2018 (UTC)


Submission declined draft article on Michael A. Russ, photographer on 12 March 2018[edit]

Hi Gene93k, thank you for your quick review of the draft article on Michael A. Russ, photographer, March 12. In your review you declined the inclusion in the English Wikipedia stating "Draft cites non-trivial coverage by one independent reliable source (Seoul Times). Basic notability requires multiple independent reliable sources". • Gene93k (talk) 23:19, 12 March 2018. I was asked to improve the submission's referencing so that the information is verifiable, and there is clear evidence of why the subject is notable and worthy of inclusion in an encyclopedia“. I have consequently set out to do that over the last 2 weeks and indeed I found some more independent and reliable sources which I included. I also complemented and corrected bibliographic information in previously used sources and references so that they could be verifiable. With the changes made, I am hoping that the notability of the photographer Michael A. Russ is adequately shown. I think I have unburried all sources available to support the quest for inclusion of this article on Michael A. Russ in the English language Wikipedia (there is an article in the German Wikipedia, created several years before). I am hoping this qualifies for a succesful new submittal.

In regard to the removed „Swordfishtrombones“ cover image – as not a fair image usage, I like to point out that Russ has the copyright to this image and agrees to the usage in the article. As it is already published in the English Wikipedia here, I am not sure why I cannot link to that image in the article. This image clearly best signifies the unique photographic style of the artist and represents also his most famous and notable photographic contribution to popular culture.

Wolverinestudent12 (talk) 03:51, 12 April 2018 (UTC)

@Wolverinestudent12: If I may speak for Gene, his comment mentioned that the only reliable source listed in the article (i.e. a source not tied directly to the event's organizers) is a local newspaper article. Since the only independent coverage that appears to be available is local coverage, not the significant coverage that Wikipedia requires to consider a topic worthy of inclusion in this encyclopedia (see WP:N and WP:42), this event, which is a branch of a wider national-level event which is already covered elsewhere (Delco Hi-Q) does not merit its own separate article.

Hello! Just wondering which bits make it sound like an advertisement? Is it this part? "The studio is staffed by talent from renowned studios such as the now defunct Studio Liverpool, Evolution Studios and Bizarre Creations, including former director of Studio Liverpool Clemens Wangerin, alongside founding members from Evolution Studios. The team have collectively devised or delivered more than 100 apps and games including PlayStation launch titles and AAA franchises such as MotorStorm,[3] WipEout, Project Gotham Racing, Blur, James Bond 007: Blood Stone, Formula 1 and World Rally Championship.[4]"

...because I think this part is covered: should refer to a range of independent, reliable, published sources, not just to materials produced by the creator of the subject being discussed VickyStarship (talk) 14:38, 18 April 2018 (UTC)

  • @VickyStarship: That is the most offending of the content. That and the "now available on" paragraph come of a mainly promotional. Wikipedia does not use peacock terms like "renowned". Also one of the "sources" is Wikipedia, not acceptable. Please also note that notability is not inherited from the names dropped. Finally, you have acknowledged a conflict of interest. Your idea of objective truth may not match Wikipedia's neutral point of view policy. • Gene93k (talk) 14:58, 18 April 2018 (UTC)

Crystal Lake (DJ) Notability[edit]

Hi Gene, I've added a few reference links to support the fact this act's (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:Crystal_Lake_(DJ) music was featured in National TV in USA (The Allen show, and Dancing With The Stars), Also was written about in DJ Mag. Are these not good enough sources for Notability? DJ Mag: https://djmag.com/music/hard/live-your-life-crystal-lake-hard-mix Dancing With The Stars (Check description): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xJmqIfBLN_c The Allen Show: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jg89g0ecG38 Full cover article (in Hebrew): https://megatickets.co.il/magazine/crystal-lake/

Crystal Lake is the leading Hardstyle act in Israel, I think it's notable in my opinion. Please let me have your thoughts.

Articles for creation: K2 Geospatial (May 9)[edit]

Hi Gene93k,

The article wasn't changed since the previous submission, because I already wrote this article in French and it was approved.[2] There is no differences between the French and English version. Can you tell me more about why the same article can be approved in one language but not in another one? It's been near to 4 months that I'm trying to put this article online and I'm still wondering what can I do more to make this possible. I would really appreciate your help on this one. Thank you! — Preceding unsigned comment added by LeaBlanchet (talkcontribs) 17:38, 18 May 2018 (UTC)

  • @LeaBlanchet: en.Wikipedia and fr.Wikipedia have different reviewers with different guidelines. The first reviewer at English Wikipedia rejected the draft as too promotional (and it is). Wikipedia requires a neutral point of view and it does not allow advertising or promotion. The draft was resubmitted without any changes. It is still unacceptable. • Gene93k (talk) 18:41, 18 May 2018 (UTC)

Copyright problem: Tomaree High School[edit]

  • @Joelwashere: As general advice, don't do this because it is against multiple Wikipedia guidelines and policies. Your editing the article about your own school is a conflict of interest. Even if you can prove you have the authority to use the text, the text is promotional. Wikipedia does not allow advertising and the text violates Wikipedia's neutral point of view policy. Finally, you are trying to base the Wikipedia article on what the school says about itself. Wikipedia articles are based on what independent reliable published sources say, warts and all. If you insist on using the text, you can contact the Wikipedia OTRS team with proof of permission. • Gene93k (talk) 13:14, 8 June 2018 (UTC)

U.S. Deletion sorting[edit]

Page declined: RidingEasy Records[edit]

Hi Gene,

Writing to get some clarity on what I can do to get this page approved: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:RidingEasy_Records

The comment was that the citations do not show additional significant coverage from independent reliable sources, and the original rejection was because it requires significant coverage in multiple independent reliable secondary sources.

I don't totally understand, as I've used very well known sources such as L.A. Weekly, The Guardian, and The Onion's AV Club, as well as smaller niche music sites like DangerousMinds and Slug.

I modeled the entry after other independent record label entries I read here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_record_labels

This entry has more coverage, from higher quality sources than other approved entries I've seen. Did the standards for record labels change and now it's a higher bar than it used to be? I'm at a loss here.

Thank you,

JKB Research SA deleted[edit]

Hi Gene93K

I recently submitted a page about the business called JKB Research SA. You recommended it for speedy Deletion and I can see that it has been removed.

I am writing for some clarity on why the page was not approved please.

This is the page: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Draft:JKB_Research_SA&action=edit&redlink=1

I submitted this for a client and followed what other similar businesses have included on their pages

You can see plenty of examples here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_cannabis_companies

JKB Research SA is the largest cannabis company in Switzerland and as a significant business they require a wikipedia page. As you can see from the citations I included they have been covered by many highly trusted media sources as well as smaller industry sites.

The page I created for them is a lot more objective and specific than previous pages published in the same industry.

This is certainly not some kind of advertising. They are a serious business, leading a fast growing industry. We just want to add a factual page about them.

Please could you let me know how I can change the article so that it is more factual and not classed as advertising?

If you could use examples from the list of other published businesses in the industry that would be helpful.

Also - the article has been completely deleted. How can i recover it to use as a starting point for a new article once I have your recommendations?

Kind Regards

Joel — Preceding unsigned comment added by Deepfootprints (talkcontribs) 03:37, 12 July 2018 (UTC)
