Bowmanga1278[edit]

Hi Gilded Snail the page Caron Bowman is not an autobiography. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bowmanga1278 (talkcontribs) 14:30, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

Bowmanga1278, I tagged the page with the "autobiography" because I had reason to believe that it had been edited by someone who had connections to the subject of the article. This is primarily because the page bears a strong similarity to the artist statement on an outside website. If this connection does not exist and it simply happens to be a coincidence, it may be helpful to add more sources or rewrite some of the material so that it does not contain material that may be original research. For example, a sentence like "Moreover, she had a great interest in the visual language of Takashi Murakami and Daphne Odjig" should not be in a Wikipedia article unless there is some sort of outside source (that is not the artist's website or a social media site) that can confirm it. Thanks! Gilded Snail (talk) 17:37, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
Will do, it might take some time because I am doing research to update another page. Anderson 20:10, 15 July 2014 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bowmanga1278 (talkcontribs)

Dharmabumx[edit]

Hi Gilded Snail, wanted to clarify that the page 'Strikingly' was not meant to be promotional. This page should not be speedy deleted because it's created according to the format of other similar companies that are on wikipedia. The tone can definitely be modified according to Wikipedia's standards and include only the most important facts that are referenced. Thanks.

Dharmabumx, I can definitely understand that the page may have not been created with the intentions of promotion! However, just because similar companies have wikipedia pages does not mean that the page Strikingly also meets wikipedia guidelines. In short, company pages have to be shown to be notable through good outside sources. For example, the New York Times saying something like "McDonald's is the world's largest chain of hamburger fast food restaurants" would count as a good outside source. If you can find sources of similar quality (not the company's website, not social media networks, etc) that provide unbiased information, then feel free to use those sources to write an article.
If you want to create another article on wikipedia, I would recommend using the Sandbox. It is a place where you can create articles and make them better without people deleting them. Then, when you are ready, you can make them into real articles. This is a good way to make sure that you are writing high-quality articles. Thanks! Gilded Snail (talk) 08:01, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

Avaya VSP 8000 Series[edit]

Hello Gilded Snail

Re your tagging of this new page as "orphan". The page is in fact reference by at least two other Wikipedia pages (listed below), and therefore this tagging is not appropriate; please remove the tag. - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/802.1aq#Product_Support - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avaya#Products

Regards — Preceding unsigned comment added by Returner323617 (talkcontribs) 10:28, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

Removed the tag! I'm sorry about that; it was a mistake on my part.

Liedekerke Wolters Waelbroeck Kirkpatrick[edit]

What is the problem with my article about Liedekerke Wolters Waelbroeck Kirkpatrick and why do you want to delete it? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2A02:2788:104:166:D54F:3413:1EDD:767B (talk) 18:36, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

Hello IP User 2A02:2788:104:166:D54F:3413:1EDD:767B! The article was deleted because it was advertising and promotion and was not shown to be notable enough for Wikipedia standards. This isn't a personal attack on your article, and I understand that it was created with the best of intentions to contribute to Wikipedia. However, when a page gets speedy-deleted for those reasons, generally the problem is that the article isn't written in a very neutral manner and/or that not enough outside references can be cited to show that it is actually a page that should be on Wikipedia. :For example, if you include a phrase in an article about a company saying it provides excellent customer service, that is not neutral and is considered advertisement. However, mentioning that the company has won three national awards for customer service and is featured in several prominent news sources (and providing citations to prove those awards) is neutral. If you have sources showing why that company is important, feel free to create articles on that subject. Better yet, you may want to try creating articles in the Sandbox, where you can write articles and improve them with the help of others before moving it into main article space. Thanks!

Brianne Siddall[edit]

Hello Gilded Snail

What is the problem with my article about Brianne Siddall and why do you want to delete it? Because that article was one the best articles for people to edit and update information, so do you know? Norozco1 (talk)

Replied on talk page. Gilded Snail (talk) 04:30, 24 July 2014 (UTC)
Sure, I can provide you with that source, only i don't have that source where you were nominated in the deletion discussion, but that's why i came to you, to see if you'd help me on bring back the deleted article, here's a link to a draft that i'd started doing for you to help with this, as part of the deletion discussion: Draft:Brianne Siddall hope this'll help bring the article back. :-) Norozco1 (talk) — Preceding undated comment added 16:25, 24 July 2014 (UTC)
I've never actually created an article before and I don't have any interest in doing so, so I may not be the best person to ask for help with this. However, I've added some references to the draft you linked me to in the hopes that you can use the information from those sources to write the article (and also so that it won't get speedy-deleted under WP:BLP). I would recommend that you head on over to the AfC help desk to find someone who will be better at helping you with article creation. Good luck! Gilded Snail (talk) 21:10, 24 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the information for my article, and i'll be sure to use the the AfC help desk link so that i can find some help with the draft. :-) Norozco1 (talk)

See also sections[edit]

Hello, thanks for your edits to Proprioception and other articles. However, I've partially undone many of your edits involving see also sections because they should not contain links repeated in the body of the article. I searched for your see also-related edits using this tool. Graham87 15:43, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

I did not notice those errors-- thank you for fixing them! Gilded Snail (talk) 18:57, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

Esperanto profanity[edit]

Thanks for your corrections; unfortunately, I had the article in use as you made it, without support for merging in Wikimedia, I fear most of your corrections got reverted. :-(

In headings, my grammar tells nouns (adjectives and substantives) get capitalised. Has WP a different policy?

I tried to convey an abstract in the heading. A "cultural reference" in itself is no profanity; the Québequois principle ("sacralities" - in Québec literally, Chalice, Tabernacle and so on are sacral language, as is Bavarian "Crucifix!!!") is the core reason for "Aktoj de la Akademio!" or "Fundamenta Krestomatio!". As Esperanto is no liturgical language and totally independent from a single cultural heritage context, the "cultural references" are the "lowest common denominator" enabling widely intelligible "sacralities", not church vocabulary that would not be understandable eg. in Islam or Buddhist countries. --217.224.148.215 (talk) 23:18, 21 July 2017 (UTC)

Hi @217.224.148.215 . Wikipedia does indeed have different conventions for headings. See MOS:HEAD for more information. What I was trying to do with my edits was to fix the capitalization, as well as ensure that the headings didn't become too wordy. As such, I'm changing "minced words, words that are puns on taboo words (vortludoj)" to "Minced oaths (vortludoj)", as "minced oaths" can refer both to minced words and words that are puns on profanities. Thanks, Gilded Snail (talk) 23:47, 21 July 2017 (UTC)
Thank you kindly! Yes, most often somebody reading a paragraph as an outsider can compress the meanings more easily than the original author. --217.224.148.215 (talk) 13:09, 22 July 2017 (UTC)

Please revert back[edit]

2601:585:4300:FB20:799A:7ABB:6E70:34F5 (talk) 01:17, 29 July 2017 (UTC)

Sorry, no. Wikipedia has guidelines for how to approach name changes, including those of transgender individuals, which you can see at MOS:GENDERID. Is there any other reason you'd like the name to be changed back? Gilded Snail (talk) 03:44, 30 July 2017 (UTC)
