List of members of the IIHF Hall of Fame[edit]

Do you have time to help finish the missing people at List of members of the IIHF Hall of Fame? I am willing to do a few, but don't want to do them all myself. I have tried reaching out to folks who edit Swedish and Russian players, but no luck so far. I finished the missing Canadians and Americans a bit earlier. I am slowly working on the missing German, Austrian and Swiss inductees. Flibirigit (talk) 19:14, 23 January 2019 (UTC)

@Flibirigit: I absolutely have time and would love to help. I might be editing a little less in the next 4 days because of work I need to catch up on (at least I should be editing less but Wikiaddiction is real) but I'd be happy to help whenever I can. I find Google Chrome's translation app very helpful so it shouldn't be too hard working on non North-American people. How do you want to go about it? Do you have people who are a "priority" or do you want to split it up 50/50?HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 19:19, 23 January 2019 (UTC)
There's no rush to complete the list. I'm working on other subjects too. It's probably easier to focus on one country all at once, so you sort of get used to one language for a while. Also, most of these people have biographies in other Wiki languages. If you're working on Subrt, do you want to do all three of the Czech members? I will do the members from Austria, Germany and Switzerland, since I can speak some German. Flibirigit (talk) 19:24, 23 January 2019 (UTC)
Sure, no problem! I've checked out Subrt's page on other Wikipedia's and have used at least one of the same source but they are typically pretty poorly sourced unfortunately. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 19:27, 23 January 2019 (UTC)
I see you already started Quido Adamec, and connected him to his versions in other languages. Well done. Flibirigit (talk) 00:46, 24 January 2019 (UTC)
And thank you for copyediting! Grammar is not my strong suit. Subrt is taking a little longer because I feel there are huge gaps of information I want to fill in but I have it sitting in my sandbox. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 00:48, 24 January 2019 (UTC)
No rush at all, there's no deadline. I probably will only do just one or two IIHF Hall of Famers per month, since I am focusing on other things. Flibirigit (talk) 01:01, 24 January 2019 (UTC)
The IIHF Hall of Fame article itself could use some improvements too. Flibirigit (talk) 16:06, 28 January 2019 (UTC)

I noticed some additions to the list of inductees to include the Torriani Award. Could you verify the names? I'm on a mobile phone for a couple days and have limited access. Thanks! Flibirigit (talk) 17:55, 6 February 2019 (UTC)

Flibirigit I've gone around and can confirm that each person listed as a Torriani Award winner has actually received the award. I found it strange no mention of this was on Torriani's page so I will be making a point to greatly expand that page sometime in the future. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 21:11, 6 February 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for looking into this.Flibirigit (talk) 22:14, 6 February 2019 (UTC)

Checklist 1[edit]

Red links at List of members of the IIHF Hall of Fame. This list should make sure we don't duplicate each other's efforts. Flibirigit (talk) 17:58, 27 January 2019 (UTC)

Flibirigit Right now I can take the Swedes and Calcaterra if you don't mind. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 06:30, 28 January 2019 (UTC)
That's fine. You will probably be going faster than I am. While you're working on the Czechs, would you be able to dig up sources on Mike Buckna? He's a Canadian-Czech and really undercited. Flibirigit (talk) 16:06, 28 January 2019 (UTC)
I just finished a big article overhaul. I should have time for a couple of these this week. Flibirigit (talk) 05:19, 29 January 2019 (UTC)
Keep up the good work, and thanks for finishing the Czechs! Flibirigit (talk) 21:17, 2 February 2019 (UTC)
Wow, you are so fast on catching that! Thanks for the support, it took a little longer than I thought but it's good. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 21:22, 2 February 2019 (UTC)
Since you're in that linguistic area, mind if I give you the Slovakian bio? I should have three of my own for next week. Flibirigit (talk) 21:26, 2 February 2019 (UTC)
Ya, no problem! HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 21:28, 2 February 2019 (UTC)
Switzerland is finished. When you're ready to do Dahlberg from Sweden, there are citations available at the Joe Kryczka article. Thanks. Flibirigit (talk) 22:11, 4 February 2019 (UTC)
Denmark is done. I won't be online much for a few days. Will check back with you on the weekend. Flibirigit (talk) 01:52, 6 February 2019 (UTC)
It looks really good, thank you for the update. I am currently working on Berglund. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 02:28, 6 February 2019 (UTC)
Do you mind adding the Torriani Award winners without articles to this list? I can't cut and paste well on my phone. Also, please put the Hungarians under my name. Thanks! Flibirigit (talk) 19:28, 7 February 2019 (UTC)
Flibirigit trout Self-trout Whoops, sorry! I just made a page for Dieter Kalt Sr. because I must've missed him on your side of the list. I hope you haven't done much research for him. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 23:30, 7 February 2019 (UTC)
No worries. He was the only one I hadn't got around to. I have done preliminary research on the others. I will replace him with the biography from Norway. Flibirigit (talk) 00:46, 8 February 2019 (UTC)
Germany is finally done. I'm going to work on the Austria-Hungary biographies now :) Flibirigit (talk) 21:25, 14 February 2019 (UTC)
Thank you for the update! I have been swamped with work but I am slowly working through Arne Grunander and Curt Berglund. It's difficult based on the age of these guys to find quality sourcing. I am always impressed by how thorough the pages you create are. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 21:30, 14 February 2019 (UTC)
Thanks, and no rush here. Flibirigit (talk) 21:44, 14 February 2019 (UTC)
I have no idea how to read Hungarian... google translate helped a lot! Flibirigit (talk) 07:23, 20 February 2019 (UTC)
I've been using google translate a lot for these Swedish fellows because sometimes google chrome isn't being triggered. Honestly, half of my family is from Montreal and I still have a Grade 8 basic level of French! Great new article! HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 07:26, 20 February 2019 (UTC)
Schade... quel dommage... drats! I added in the previous red links I started in case you want to read. I think we're making good progress with this list. We should be finished by springtime. Flibirigit (talk) 17:53, 20 February 2019 (UTC)
I struggled to find much on Norway. I left it as a sourced stub. Flibirigit (talk) 15:48, 22 February 2019 (UTC)
One more Russian down. We're getting close! Flibirigit (talk) 21:26, 22 February 2019 (UTC)
Dokončila sa ďalšia. I just completed Ladislav Horský. I found a surprising amount of web based content on him despite his death in the 1980s. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 21:51, 22 February 2019 (UTC)
We're making good progress lately. Flibirigit (talk) 22:01, 22 February 2019 (UTC)
I've had a couple days off from work (thank you Dalton McGuinty) so I've been spending a lot of time editing.HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 22:05, 22 February 2019 (UTC)
Walter Waterbird was hard to find much for. Flibirigit (talk) 17:28, 23 February 2019 (UTC)
A contributor from Norway expanded the Tore Johannessen stub, and I found a couple more sources for him. I will probably start on Hans Dobida on Monday! How are you doing with Sweden? Flibirigit (talk) 02:58, 24 February 2019 (UTC)
I will do Finland and Ukraine. Would you mind doing to last Russian? Flibirigit (talk) 07:47, 24 February 2019 (UTC)
No I don't mind. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 14:35, 24 February 2019 (UTC)
So it looks like the page on the last Russian already exists (Igor Dmitriev (ice hockey)) but it is only sourced to one citation so I will try expanding it. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 01:45, 26 February 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for finding that, and expanding it would be great too. There are probably a few undersourced stub article on this list we should look into after the red links are done. Flibirigit (talk) 01:53, 26 February 2019 (UTC)
Ukraine is finished. Flibirigit (talk) 16:20, 26 February 2019 (UTC)
Grunander is done! HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 02:21, 27 February 2019 (UTC)
Excellent. Please check the citations at Joe Kryczka article for mention of Dahlberg in the 1972 Summit Series. I have the remaining five on my list full researched. It's just a matter of writing now. Flibirigit (talk) 02:43, 27 February 2019 (UTC)
Thank you, that will be really helpful! HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 02:50, 27 February 2019 (UTC)
Dobida is done. Flibirigit (talk) 20:02, 28 February 2019 (UTC)
Ove Dahlberg is done and I nominated it for DYK. I found his career very interesting and it was a pleasure to research. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 00:57, 1 March 2019 (UTC)
Excellent, you should be done Italy this weekend. I have the other four researched, and should be done writing by next weekend. Flibirigit (talk) 01:23, 1 March 2019 (UTC)
Finland is finished. Unfortunately I could not open any of the links on the Suomi version of the article. If you can, please add citations. Thanks. Flibirigit (talk) 20:54, 1 March 2019 (UTC)
I updated some of the urls through the Wayback Machine [1] but they wouldn't be of use to you. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 21:13, 1 March 2019 (UTC)
I guess we can add Italian to the list of langauges I will never speak but finally Enrico Calcaterra‎ is done. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 02:07, 2 March 2019 (UTC)
I dunno about you, but I speak Italian all the time when talking about food! I will done the other three by next week, and join you on Checklist 2. Flibirigit (talk) 02:21, 2 March 2019 (UTC)
Are you able to find this in the Wayback machine? Thanks. 05:01, 5 March 2019 (UTC)
Yes [2]. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 05:04, 5 March 2019 (UTC)
 ! Arigato ! 05:13, 5 March 2019 (UTC)
Hungary is done. I'm close to finishing Japan and Bulgaria. Flibirigit (talk) 20:28, 5 March 2019 (UTC)
Japan is finished. I should be done Bulgaria soon. Flibirigit (talk) 19:50, 7 March 2019 (UTC)
It's all done. Thanks for the teamwork! Flibirigit (talk) 23:31, 12 March 2019 (UTC)

Checklist 2[edit]

We should make a checklist of the stubs to expand for the IIHF Hall of Fame. We should also include, uncited articles, and major maintenance tags. Flibirigit (talk) 01:06, 1 March 2019 (UTC)

I added the first two the need work. Please add more, and put a {{done}} check mark in front of the name when you're finished. Flibirigit (talk) 01:20, 1 March 2019 (UTC)
I added the Canadians... this will keep us busy for a while. Flibirigit (talk) 01:33, 1 March 2019 (UTC)
Wow, you added a lot. Did you make it through the whole list? Flibirigit (talk) 01:45, 1 March 2019 (UTC)
I did not because I didn't want it to become too overwhelming. Looking now, I can probably remove a few articles that just need expansion but not a lot of references or major tags. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 01:50, 1 March 2019 (UTC)
Maybe group them by the most urgent, and see how far we get? There's no deadline after all. Flibirigit (talk) 01:55, 1 March 2019 (UTC)
That's a good idea. I think I'll group them based on how poorly written/most work they require, how viewed the article will be (ie. how many links from other articles come here) etc. to decide which is most urgent. Likely expanding IIHF Hall of Fame is most important since all these articles link to it and many more. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 02:11, 1 March 2019 (UTC)
Regarding Yoshiaki Tsutsumi, according to his Japanese language article, it is the same person. This was also confirmed in a discussion at WikiProject Japan. Flibirigit (talk) 19:41, 5 March 2019 (UTC)
Perfect, thank you for checking. That article needs a lot of work in my opinion. It seems to mostly focus on the criminal activities and doesn't even mention the IIHF. Not to mention it has limited ininline citations. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 19:45, 5 March 2019 (UTC)
Maybe we could recruit help at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Japan#Yoshiaki Tsutsumi? Flibirigit (talk) 20:17, 5 March 2019 (UTC)
I will redo the IIHFHOF article as soon as I finish the Bulgarian. Flibirigit (talk) 07:25, 8 March 2019 (UTC)
I am working on the IIHF Hall of Fame article itself. I should be done by Friday. Have you had time to work on this checklist? Flibirigit (talk) 23:34, 12 March 2019 (UTC)
I have a little bit. I personally think Kompalla can be expanded more but it is in much better shape than when I started. I would also like to work on Bye-Dietz a bit more, specifically her NCAA career. I am participating in an edit-a-thon in a few weeks for Women In Red so I have been focusing on that a bit. On a side note, I think Bruce Dowbiggin is probably as good as it's gonna get.HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 23:39, 12 March 2019 (UTC)
I agree, we probably won't find much more without significant effort. I will let you start the main space article. Flibirigit (talk) 00:13, 13 March 2019 (UTC)
I don't generally move things from my sandbox so I probably did that wrong. I'll find an admin to help me delete the history that shouldn't be there. Anyways, its up at Bruce Dowbiggin. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 00:22, 13 March 2019 (UTC)
I have finally completed the rewrite for the IIHF HOF. I am beginning the process of separating the Torriani recipients from the HOF inductees, as they are not mutually inclusive. Flibirigit (talk) 18:24, 23 March 2019 (UTC)
How do you feel about making a "Checklist 3" for recipients of the Paul Loicq Award? It's the other pominent IIHF honor which is incomplete. I'm not sure if every recipient passes WP:GNG, but it could be worthwhile to explore. Flibirigit (talk) 19:16, 23 March 2019 (UTC)
Sure, I can do it in a little while. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 19:18, 23 March 2019 (UTC)
No rush, I won't be online much in the next two weeks. Flibirigit (talk) 21:03, 23 March 2019 (UTC)
I should be back online a bit more regularly as of tomorrow. How have you been? Flibirigit (talk) 20:53, 10 April 2019 (UTC)
@Flibirigit: Welcome back, I hope you enjoyed your time away. Haven't worked much on this list as I've been focusing more on the Elmer Ferguson Memorial Award but I'm working on Monique Scheier-Schneider (other list) who might be notable. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 20:58, 10 April 2019 (UTC)
I am going to focus on the two award namesakes, Torriani and Loicq, and also finish my essay on Father Bauer. I figure those will keep me busy for some time. Flibirigit (talk) 05:34, 20 June 2019 (UTC)
I am making progress with research for Paul Loicq, and there are adequate sources available online and in the newspaperarchives. Flibirigit (talk) 22:00, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
Do you have any DYK hook suggestions for Paul Loicq? Something in addition to the first European in the HHOF would be nice. I want to nominate this by July 31 for his August 11 birthday. Thanks. Flibirigit (talk) 03:51, 31 July 2019 (UTC)
@Flibirigit: I'll add my two cents shortly. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 23:16, 31 July 2019 (UTC)
The nomination at Template:Did you know nominations/Paul Loicq has five proposed hooks with a review in progress. Comment if you would like. Flibirigit (talk) 03:40, 1 August 2019 (UTC)
I am going to resume working on David Bauer (ice hockey) and Bibi Torriani. When you're back into hockey mode, let me know. Flibirigit (talk) 01:28, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
I am still working on David Bauer (ice hockey), but it won't be done in November. Maybe more likely next summer. Flibirigit (talk) 18:52, 2 November 2019 (UTC)
Der ni-sturm
  • I am almost finished Bibi Torriani. He played on a famous forward line known as Der ni-sturm (The ni-storm) alongside Hans Cattini and Ferdinand Cattini. Would you be interested in a fivefold expansion or a clean-up of the Cattini brothers? I plan on nominating Torriani for an October 1st DYK, for his birthday anniversary. There is potential for all three players to be included in the hook. Any thoughts? Flibirigit (talk) 20:30, 20 September 2019 (UTC)
@Flibirigit: I can attempt a five-fold (it’ll all be in English :) ) Seems like a lot of information is missing. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 20:45, 20 September 2019 (UTC)
It will make more sense when I post the Torriani update tonight or tomorrow. I will also provide you with a translation from German sources. Flibirigit (talk) 20:54, 20 September 2019 (UTC)
The Bibi Torriani update is now posted. Flibirigit (talk) 02:26, 22 September 2019 (UTC)
@Flibirigit: Way to go! Looks so much better now. I don't think I hit five-fold with Ferdinand Cattini but I did give him a healthy update. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 04:55, 22 September 2019 (UTC)
Thanks, I updated the entries below. Flibirigit (talk) 12:45, 22 September 2019 (UTC)

Not so important right now

Checklist 3[edit]

Last year I tried to find enough information on Kent Angus to write an article, but all I could find is the single announcement from the IIHF that he won the Paul Loicq Award. If you think he passes WP:GNG, go ahead with an article. Flibirigit (talk) 21:29, 24 March 2019 (UTC)

I haven't forgotten about these. I hope to look into some after finishing my current project. Flibirigit (talk) 14:17, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
I completed an article about our Luxembourgian leading lady. I see that a one-sentence stub was just created yesterday for Patrick Francheterre. It should be expanded soon. Flibirigit (talk) 00:35, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
@Flibirigit: Thank you! I was beginning that one too, what a coincidence. When I get off from work, I'll see if I can merge my content with yours. I think I'll attempt to expand the stub and work on the Canadian one next. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 00:42, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
I will start working on expanding Patrick Francheterre tonight and tomorrow. Flibirigit (talk) 03:24, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
I have located foreign language wiki articles for two more red links below. Flibirigit (talk) 04:08, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
I definitely have enough content for Francheterre, hopefully I can finish his article within a couple days. Are you still working on the Kent Angus article? Flibirigit (talk) 04:15, 21 May 2019 (UTC)
@Flibirigit: I was, but I agree with your assessment above. I despise creating stubs (although I know the value of them), and that is likely what Angus would turn out to be. I think Bo Tovland would be a better place to start. He absolutely passes NHOCKEY and GNG, without a doubt. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 04:19, 21 May 2019 (UTC)
No worries. Go ahead with Tovland. Flibirigit (talk) 04:22, 21 May 2019 (UTC)
Francheterre is done. Have you had time to work on Tovland? Flibirigit (talk) 21:39, 30 May 2019 (UTC)
@Flibirigit: Another nice article! I've done pretty good work on Tovland if I do say so myself. I'm aiming for Monday at the latest to post. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 22:19, 30 May 2019 (UTC)
@Flibirigit: Made a decent Start article for Tovland. Will be able to improve soon.HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 01:20, 4 June 2019 (UTC)
Re: Tovland, he is not inducted into the IIHF Hall of Fame. Recipients of the Loicq Award are not inducted into the hall itself as full members. Flibirigit (talk) 01:39, 4 June 2019 (UTC)
Oops, you're right. Removed. It wasn't in the infobox but I missed it in the lede. Thanks! HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 01:48, 4 June 2019 (UTC)
I manually added the Svenska interwiki link. Sometimes a bot adds it automatically, but didn't do it here. Flibirigit (talk) 13:45, 4 June 2019 (UTC)

The next Loicq Award recipient I will tackle will be Wolf-Dieter Montag. I am trying to finish up other projects first though. It might be a couple weeks before I start his article. Flibirigit (talk) 02:55, 4 June 2019 (UTC)

No worries Flibirigit, real life is catching up with me too. I'll tackle Vsevolod Kukushkin, maybe. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 04:54, 4 June 2019 (UTC)
I have enough sources for an article on Roman Neumayer. I hope to get the two Germans written with a couple weeks. Flibirigit (talk) 08:46, 11 June 2019 (UTC)
@Flibirigit: Glad you're making a lot of progress. Unfortunately, my computer has gone dead on me. It's nearly 10 years old so I was expecting it but I won't be creating new pages for at least a week. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 22:05, 11 June 2019 (UTC)
I have found enough to do articles for Kent Angus and Juraj Okoličány. I hope to finish a couple of them this weekend. Flibirigit (talk) 23:14, 13 June 2019 (UTC)
I searched ad nauseum for information on Hrbacek in German, and ended up just writing a stub article. I should have a start article for Angus posted soon. Flibirigit (talk) 17:06, 14 June 2019 (UTC)
@Flibirigit: Sorry for being so behind. With my computer out of commission I find it difficult to do much Wiki work. I will attempt to write about Vsevolod Kukushkin as I should be getting a new laptop by next week. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 17:16, 14 June 2019 (UTC)
I have found a bit of information on Isao Kataoka. I'm going to try again searching in Japanese if I can. Do you mind working on the winners from Russia? After the red links are done, we can touch up the existing articles. Flibirigit (talk) 19:34, 14 June 2019 (UTC)
Just four more red links to go! I have the German and Slovakian recipients thoroughly researched, and it's just a matter of writing them now. Do you want to work on the two Russians when you're back online? Flibirigit (talk) 05:36, 20 June 2019 (UTC)
@Flibirigit: You're soooo speedy! I should have my new laptop by Saturday of this week so that sounds plausible. I borrowed a family members laptop for the time being but I don't like it very much. I will likely do the bare minimum in terms of editing until my new one arrives. Hope to knock out one of the Russian articles before Canada Day. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 06:23, 20 June 2019 (UTC)

Could you have a quick glance at Template:Did you know nominations/Kent Angus for alternative hook suggestions? My creative side is not with me this morning. Flibirigit (talk) 14:33, 20 June 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for the above. Angus is in the holding area for his July 31 birthday. Isao Kataoka is holding for his July 12 birthday. Flibirigit (talk) 22:02, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
The German doctor is done. Have a look, it seems he was an accomplished man. Flibirigit (talk) 04:41, 10 July 2019 (UTC)
Feel free to add hook suggestions to Template:Did you know nominations/Wolf-Dieter Montag if something interests you. Thanks. Flibirigit (talk) 20:04, 10 July 2019 (UTC)
Okoličány is now finished. Are you still working on Kukushkin? Flibirigit (talk) 01:09, 6 August 2019 (UTC)
Yuri Korolev (ice hockey) is now finished. I came across several articles and put them together. I hope I didn't duplicate any work you had in progress. Are you still working on Vsevolod Kukushkin? I have found out he's a journalist, and sat on the IIHF Hall of Fame selection committee. Thanks. Flibirigit (talk) 20:06, 6 August 2019 (UTC)
Yes I am still working on it. Sorry being super late to the party on this one. I am usually better at sticking to tasks :/. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 03:32, 11 August 2019 (UTC)
I finished an article for Vsevolod Kukushkin. Sorry, I was anxious to complete the list and figured you have been busy. If you found any more information, please add it. Flibirigit (talk) 20:35, 15 August 2019 (UTC)
@Flibirigit: Funnily enough, I was actively working on it. Don’t worry, I’m glad you made it. I’m sorry for not prioritizing this. If I’m being honest, I think I consistently lose motivation to write about hockey during the off-season. This happened last year too. It’s not fair to do that to you. And yes I know this is a volunteer project but it’s also a collaborative project. And I haven’t done the best at that aspect regarding these BLPs. I apologize. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 22:25, 15 August 2019 (UTC)
No worries, I have had more time than expected this month. Flibirigit (talk) 01:26, 16 August 2019 (UTC)

Journalists / A project on the side[edit]

I'm struggling to write a biography for a Canadian hockey journalist. Do you want to help? Flibirigit (talk) 03:44, 4 March 2019 (UTC)

Flibirigit I would love to! HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 03:52, 4 March 2019 (UTC)
Thanks, check your sandbox. I was surprised this article does not exist yet! Flibirigit (talk) 04:11, 4 March 2019 (UTC)
Do you think you can make it happen? It's been stuck in my sandbox way too long and not going anywhere. Flibirigit (talk) 04:18, 4 March 2019 (UTC)
I can try my best. I feel like you have more access to resources than I do (ie. newspaperarchives) so I am a little tentative in my skills if you couldn't find anything substantive. However, my month is really light (yes I know there is not a deadline) so if I were to tackle an assignment this month would be the best time. At worst, this article becomes a stub. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 04:22, 4 March 2019 (UTC)
It started as spinoff from Russ Conway (journalist), but never went anywhere. My strength is researching the older people. Flibirigit (talk) 04:30, 4 March 2019 (UTC)
Btw, my membership in newspaperarchives expired, and I am waiting for it to be renewed. That's why I have had time to do these IIHF articles. :-) Flibirigit (talk) 04:33, 4 March 2019 (UTC)
Oh I see. I believe I have access to my Universities archive of old newspapers (up until 1980-something) but this guy is still pretty recent so I'll do my best! I actually find researching and creating interesting and exciting so this is a nice break from the limited work I have. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 04:35, 4 March 2019 (UTC)
@Flibirigit: Thank you for the sources you have gathered for me. One of the sources was written by David Shoalts who I was surprised to learn didn't have an article either. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 21:46, 7 March 2019 (UTC)
If you're interested, go for it. I find that journalists and administrators are overlooked when it comes to writing Wikipedia articles. Flibirigit (talk) 22:12, 7 March 2019 (UTC)
Thumbs up I think you're right. I also think Dowbiggin is ready to go soon, I just want to smooth out the Eagleson report section. I feel it can be more in depth. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 22:15, 7 March 2019 (UTC)
  • I'm finished expanding the Bruce Dowbiggin article now. I will nominate it for DYK later today. What do you think? Flibirigit (talk) 14:54, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
Template:Did you know nominations/Bruce Dowbiggin. Nominated. Flibirigit (talk) 15:29, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
Looks good! HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 16:52, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
  • FYI, I finally finished W. A. Fry. I worked on it for three weeks straight. He was a newspaper man who went onto hockey things. You might enjoy the read. Flibirigit (talk) 04:11, 4 November 2019 (UTC)

Elmer Ferguson Memorial Award[edit]

You might be interested in writing missing articles for recipients of the Elmer Ferguson Memorial Award. I figure they would pass WP:GNG for inclusion. Flibirigit (talk) 07:22, 8 March 2019 (UTC)
@Flibirigit: Thank you for showing me this, there are only so many hockey players to write about per season eh? This does interest me (from all the research that I've been doing so far I recognize over half of these names already) and it makes me practice a new skill of writing. Hockey players all typically follow the same format and path so I find it interesting to try and write a new way. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 07:29, 8 March 2019 (UTC)
It would be great if you take on the Elmer Ferguson Award. I'm going to focus more on administrators in Canada, once a few more critical IIHF articles are done. Eventually I do want to work on the Canada Sports Hall of Fame. Flibirigit (talk) 07:34, 8 March 2019 (UTC)
Of course! HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 07:36, 8 March 2019 (UTC)
I notice there's an article for Jim Proudfoot from the UK, but no Jim Proudfoot (journalist) from Canada article. If you're willing to take that on, there are several citations available in the Houston & Shoalts book on Eagleson. It's an interesting read if you can get a copy. Flibirigit (talk) 18:13, 8 March 2019 (UTC)
I am commenting here to make sure this section doesn't get archived. Do you have any Elmer Ferguson Memorial Award in progress? Flibirigit (talk) 16:36, 6 August 2019 (UTC)
@Flibirigit: I have User:HickoryOughtShirt?4/Ted Damata which could use some improvement. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 19:00, 6 August 2019 (UTC)
That's one name I am not familiar with. I will post something here when I chose a recipient to write about. Flibirigit (talk) 20:09, 6 August 2019 (UTC)

Scott Young[edit]

I did a bit of copyediting at Scott Young (writer). He's an Elmer Ferguson Memorial Award winner, and the father of a couple famous musicians. If you have time, I could use help. Real life is keeping me very busy lately. I'm almost finished a separate project I am working on. Thanks. Flibirigit (talk) 23:17, 19 April 2019 (UTC)

@Flibirigit: While I don't mind popping in to help (he seems like an interesting guy), it seems this article was copied from here (which in turn, seems to be transcribed from a Globe and Mail article I can't access [4]). If true, this means the entire article needs a re-write. I am not sure why Earwig doesn't pick up on this [5]. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 05:54, 20 April 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for pointing that out. Sometimes a rewrite is a good thing anyhow. Flibirigit (talk) 11:12, 20 April 2019 (UTC)
If you have time, this journalist and writer needs an overhaul. Flibirigit (talk) 03:27, 16 September 2019 (UTC)
OK! HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 03:29, 16 September 2019 (UTC)

Philip Ross[edit]

I forgot to ask, were you still interested in Philip Ross? He's the journalist who predates the Elmer Ferguson Award. Flibirigit (talk) 14:24, 14 May 2019 (UTC)

This one will take a bit longer to research and clean up, but you might be interested. It's not on my radar yet. Flibirigit (talk) 03:32, 16 September 2019 (UTC)
Flibirigit, I can attempt it. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 03:34, 16 September 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for the improvements. I formatted the references lists as the end, but some citations need more complete info. The introduction paragraph should be made longer too. Do you have time to look into the above and a few uncited statements? Flibirigit (talk) 12:14, 16 September 2019 (UTC)
Oh ya Flibirigit, I wasn't done. That was just an initial update. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 19:04, 16 September 2019 (UTC)
Sounds good. I did a few small updates this morning. I will try to get a gravestone photo when I am in Beechwood Cemetery. We could also add any photos from before 1923 which would be exempt from copyright. Flibirigit (talk) 19:11, 16 September 2019 (UTC)
If you can't get to the cemetery, I live around it as well. It is easily within driving distance. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 19:35, 16 September 2019 (UTC)
You're much closer than me at a bit over four hours away. I won't be in Ottawa until November at the earliest. Please go ahead if you have time. Flibirigit (talk) 20:08, 16 September 2019 (UTC)
Oh, shit. I was looking at the one in Vaughan. That was the first hit on google. Sorry! HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 20:11, 16 September 2019 (UTC)
All in due time. I will get there eventually. I will be finished Torriani this week. Flibirigit (talk) 20:16, 16 September 2019 (UTC)
Maybe @Earl Andrew: could help! Flibirigit (talk) 20:18, 16 September 2019 (UTC)
Sorry about that, that was a bit silly of me eh? I am almost done Tim Moriarty. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 20:30, 16 September 2019 (UTC)
I'm headed to Ottawa this weekend. I will see what I cant get! Flibirigit (talk) 04:45, 8 November 2019 (UTC)
Flibirigit, sounds good. I'll see if I can get some photos for our IIHF pages. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 04:48, 8 November 2019 (UTC)

Photo added. What do you think about creating Category:Burials at Beechwood Cemetery, or similar? Flibirigit (talk) 03:26, 11 November 2019 (UTC)

Looks like a good idea. Seeing the long list at Beechwood Cemetery, it looks like a viable category. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 03:30, 11 November 2019 (UTC)
Do you have time to look into it, and make sure it's named correctly? Flibirigit (talk) 03:35, 11 November 2019 (UTC)
Flibirigit, I am going to create Category:Burials at Beechwood Cemetery (Ottawa) unless you have a better title. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 04:13, 11 November 2019 (UTC)
Thanks. It may or may not be renamed, but populating the category is the first step. Flibirigit (talk) 05:02, 11 November 2019 (UTC)
 Done. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 05:10, 11 November 2019 (UTC)
Thanks, but you forgot Ross, LOL. Flibirigit (talk) 05:43, 11 November 2019 (UTC)

Jack Gatecliff[edit]

@Flibirigit: Thanks for the understanding. I've begun Jack Gatecliff at User:HickoryOughtShirt?4/Jack Gatecliff however it is difficult to find reliable sources online. The "best" I found it this which is obviously unacceptable being a fan forum. Do you have any sources you know of?HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 17:59, 16 May 2019 (UTC)

I think the best place to look is the Newspaper archive. Also, the HHOF archives might be helpful. Flibirigit (talk) 18:13, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
It looks decent so far. Flibirigit (talk) 03:55, 24 May 2019 (UTC)
@Flibirigit: Jack Gatecliff is  Done but could use some expansion from offline sources. I'm trying to nominate it for DYK. Thinking special occasion request for September 5 (DOD) or date of 2019 winner (seems to be June (?)). HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 20:27, 27 May 2019 (UTC)
If there is an annual ceremony that could be an anniversary, otherwise I would just go with a regular nomination. I will try to look into offline sources on the weekend. Real life is getting busy this week. Flibirigit (talk) 01:47, 28 May 2019 (UTC)
I had a look into the newspaperarchives, but didn't find anything new to contribute to Gatecliff. Flibirigit (talk) 15:19, 3 June 2019 (UTC)

Frank Brown[edit]

Here's the 2019 nominee [6] Are you interested? Flibirigit (talk) 11:44, 1 June 2019 (UTC)

@Flibirigit: Ha, you read my mind. I've already begun working on it when I saw the news yesterday Face-smile.svg. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 12:55, 1 June 2019 (UTC)
Thanks again. Flibirigit (talk) 15:10, 1 June 2019 (UTC)
Any progress on Frank Brown? Flibirigit (talk) 22:42, 6 July 2019 (UTC)
Yup Flibirigit. Expect it up in a few days! HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 13:39, 7 July 2019 (UTC)
Flibirigit before I post the article today, do you have a better title suggestion than Frank Brown (writer)? HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 11:53, 12 July 2019 (UTC)
Frank Brown (journalist) is another option. I don't see either in use at the Frank Brown disambiguation page. Writer could be a better choice if he did more writing than journalism. Flibirigit (talk) 15:16, 12 July 2019 (UTC)
@Flibirigit:  Done as journalist. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 00:03, 13 July 2019 (UTC)
A citation is missing for the year of birth. Do you remember where it came from? Flibirigit (talk) 13:59, 13 July 2019 (UTC)
@Flibirigit: In the article linked above, it says “Brown's professional writing career began in 1970 at the age of 18” and here it says he was 65 in 2018. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 14:18, 13 July 2019 (UTC)

A footnote should be in the article, with that explanation. Flibirigit (talk) 19:35, 13 July 2019 (UTC)

 Done HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 21:46, 13 July 2019 (UTC)

Stan Shillington[edit]

I have come across the name Stan Shillington several times as Canadian lacrosse writer and researcher. He is inducted into the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame, see profile here. Would you be interested? Flibirigit (talk) 15:12, 21 August 2019 (UTC)

When I get back from vacation (Saturday) I’ll definitely try. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 15:26, 21 August 2019 (UTC)
@Flibirigit:, you can check out what I've begun at User:HickoryOughtShirt?4/Stan Shillington. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 05:03, 25 August 2019 (UTC)
It looks like a good start. Flibirigit (talk) 12:17, 25 August 2019 (UTC)
Flibirigit, Anything you want to add before I publish? I think I've exhausted all sources I have access to. One thing troubling me is that I think he went to UBC per this as the times add up but I cannot find any other source. If you are able to find any, I would love to add it to expand the article. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 20:25, 27 August 2019 (UTC)
I looked in the newspaper archives, and found mention of a Stan Shillington who worked in policing in Canada, but I did not find a definite connection to this person. I think you're okay to go ahead with the source as is. Flibirigit (talk) 21:06, 27 August 2019 (UTC)
Flibirigit He did work for the police force for quite a few years [7]. Thanks though, I'll go ahead and publish. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 21:08, 27 August 2019 (UTC)

John Ross Robertson[edit]

Hey Hickory, I am still alive, but focusing on some other projects. The recent additions to John Ross Robertson need some help and other clean up. I did a bit, but more is needed. Btw, he's a hockey/newspaper guy! Are you interested? Flibirigit (talk) 18:48, 2 November 2019 (UTC)

Ya, totally. I won't be able to do it tonight though. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 19:05, 2 November 2019 (UTC)

Academic ice hockey coach[edit]

Check your sandbox. I'm confident you will want to collaborate. Flibirigit (talk) 14:41, 26 November 2019 (UTC)

Hahaha, you are right. I'll check it out soon. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 21:58, 26 November 2019 (UTC)
I have imported as much information as I could. Please have a look at the last "uncited source" and complate a proper citation template for it. Maybe "cite journal" is best? I will leave this with you for a few days. I'm sure you will be able to complete the correct infobox as well. Thanks. Flibirigit (talk) 05:12, 28 November 2019 (UTC)
I have found a few things from the newspaperarchives to add into the research. I noticed you put a birthplace in the infobox. Did you find an extra source that I did not? Thanks. Flibirigit (talk) 19:54, 30 November 2019 (UTC)
Flibirigit I think I misread one of the sources. This source says Montreal [8] but I am nearly certain they are referring to his university. Very frustrating there is limited information about his youth. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 04:53, 1 December 2019 (UTC)
Have you found anything else to add? I want to start putting this together soon. Flibirigit (talk) 01:56, 10 December 2019 (UTC)
Not really. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 02:01, 10 December 2019 (UTC)
Do you have any concerns about notability? It looks like WP:NPROF #7 is met. Flibirigit (talk) 02:17, 10 December 2019 (UTC)
Oh Flibirigit I wasn't even thinking in terms of WP:NPROF because he became a professor after his career was finished. I was focusing mostly on WP:GNG but having #7 met is also good. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 02:20, 10 December 2019 (UTC)

Barrie Colts arena name[edit]

Do you have time to follow-up at Barrie Molson Centre? It was discussed here, but nobody got around to it. Btw, I'm close to finishing an essay that is taking up 99% of my time. Flibirigit (talk) 15:36, 11 October 2019 (UTC)

I just added citations to the article. I am unsure if you wanted me to move the article but I would wait until a sponsor is found. And take your time, write a great essay Face-smile.svg. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 17:57, 11 October 2019 (UTC)
Your update looks great as is. There didn't appear to be a move consensus when discussed. Thanks again. Flibirigit (talk) 18:24, 11 October 2019 (UTC)
FYI, the arena's renaming and corresponding Wiki article move are complete. Flibirigit (talk) 19:55, 30 November 2019 (UTC)

Jeanne Sauvé Memorial Cup[edit]

Hi. I know that you're Canadian and have an interest in ice hockey, and while it's an entirely different sport, do you have any interest in Ringette? The article linked above is not the best of shape at the moment, especially compared to some of my other articles. I probably should have started it in draft space first. I'm trying to do some research of my own, but if you can help at all, I'd greatly appreciate it. Clovermoss (talk) 23:50, 15 October 2019 (UTC)

Sure Clovermoss, sounds interesting. It might be easier if you started expanding the article in a sandbox so both of us can work on it simultaneously. I just worry if you are doing your own research we may overlap. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 00:24, 16 October 2019 (UTC)
That sounds great! Is there a specific sandbox you had in mind? Again, thanks for offering to help. I really appreciate it. Clovermoss (talk) 00:26, 16 October 2019 (UTC)
No, just like User:HickoryOughtShirt?4/Jeanne Sauvé Memorial Cup (or under your user name). HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 00:28, 16 October 2019 (UTC)
Okay! A subpage anywhere is great, as long as I know where it is. Clovermoss (talk) 00:34, 16 October 2019 (UTC)
Clovermoss,  Done (User:HickoryOughtShirt?4/Jeanne Sauvé Memorial Cup). Just copy and paste whatever you have started (if anything) and I'll help where I can. Maybe also post on some Women In Red Project pages too.HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 00:38, 16 October 2019 (UTC)
Clovermoss, Betty Shields deserves an article too ([9]). HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 01:28, 16 October 2019 (UTC)
Okay, I'll see what I can do! I just spent the past half hour trying to improve the Olympics section of Ringette, see here [10] if interested. That article has a section of notable athletes as well, most of which are red links. Clovermoss (talk) 01:43, 16 October 2019 (UTC)
Have to go to bed now since it's a schoolnight. I'll do more research on Betty tomorrow and everything else if I have the time, but the little I was able to find about her was quite impressive! She's definitely notable. Clovermoss (talk) 02:00, 16 October 2019 (UTC)
Today was busy. Didn't have as much time to edit. These two articles are my priotory as soon as possible tomorrow, though. Clovermoss (talk) 02:38, 17 October 2019 (UTC)
Clovermoss, no worries. It is reading week for me so that's why I've been on Wikipedia a lot today. There is no deadline, so do not worry. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 02:39, 17 October 2019 (UTC)
I'm going to have a few solid hours on the weekend, and I'm hoping I can use it to improve the article/research more about Betty Shields. Clovermoss (talk) 22:40, 31 October 2019 (UTC)

Gilbert Laporte[edit]

Please do not reverse the edits to Gilbert Laporte's page. I am a colleague of his at HEC Montréal, he personally asked to do those edits. Some are a matter of Pr. Laporte's personal preference, some are clear errors in dates or names of distinctions. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jemendozag (talkcontribs) 01:10, 30 October 2019 (UTC)

Hi Jemendozag and welcome to Wikipedia. Not only were the additions you made unsourced, you are in violation of our conflict of interest policies. I want to be very clear here that no one owns the page and you (nor Laporte) have a right to dictate what is written on it. In saying this, your best bet would be to walk away. Us volunteer editors often resent that paid or conflict of interest editors write non-neutrally, displaying obvious bias toward themselves or their clients, and write promotionally. A neutral point of view is one of the five pillars of Wikipedia, and is non-negotiable. The encyclopedia is here for knowledge, it isn't here to be used as a personal website. Secondly, you must declare your conflict of interest on your user page (followWP:DISCLOSE) and use WP:Edit Requests on the articles talk page. This is the only way the community is comfortable with COI editing. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 01:32, 30 October 2019 (UTC)

You do not need to be agressive. I think it is pretty obvious that I did not know these policies or the right process to edit pages (or ask for editions). If those are the rules, that is perfectly fine, they make perfect sense. Let me then just kindly ask you to correct the facts that you got wrong. After all, "the encyclopedia is here for knowledge". Pr. Laporte is not an officer (OC) of the order of Canada, he is a member (CM). He received that award on December 27, 2018 and not on January 2019 as you innacurately wrote. You can check both facts on the official announcement: https://www.gg.ca/en/media/news/2018/governor-general-announces-103-new-appointments-order-canada. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jemendozag (talkcontribs) 02:14, 30 October 2019 (UTC)

Jemendozag, I didn't mean to come off aggressive, I wanted to make sure everything was understood. Thank you for pointing out the error. The article was published in January so that explains that. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 02:18, 30 October 2019 (UTC)


Wrong Link on Marc Newson page[edit]

Hello HickoryOughtShirt?4, I am new on English Wikipedia and I am not very experienced. I noticed that the Magis link on Marc Newson's page takes to a religious association and not to the right page, that does not actually exist. I tried to create it, but it has been deleted. Is it possible to resolve the problem? It seems I can't do it by myself. THank you so much — Preceding unsigned comment added by IBOSIO (talkcontribs) 13:53, 30 October 2019 (UTC)

Hi IBOSIO and welcome to Wikipedia. The reason your edits were reverted were because you tried to take over an existing page. If you think Magis passes our WP:Notability criteria, you can write it out in the WP:Sandbox. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 18:27, 30 October 2019 (UTC)

World Series vandalism[edit]

I'm online. Just ping me if there's a page I should protect. – Muboshgu (talk) 03:17, 31 October 2019 (UTC)

Muboshgu, thanks for the fast work but I don't mind protecting either. I was just trying to be cautious because of WP:PREEMPTIVE. Not a big baseball fan but have my eye on a few pages Face-wink.svg.HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 03:19, 31 October 2019 (UTC)
Whoops! I didn't see the mop on your top-right corner. Didn't occur to me you're an admin. Was planning on telling other baseball editors I see to notify me of articles I miss. Carry on then!
@Muboshgu: Haha, no worries! Might want to keep some hockey pages on your watchlist though for vandalism fighting purposes. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 03:23, 31 October 2019 (UTC)
No can do right now, the World Series related vandalism is picking up. – Muboshgu (talk) 03:38, 31 October 2019 (UTC)

FYI[edit]

EnergyWatch, LLC Deletion[edit]

Hi there,

I noticed you had deleted the page I created for EnergyWatch, LLC due to meeting speedy deletion criteria. Thanks for being so diligent. I am going to write another version of the page to correct some issues you brought to my attention.

Thanks again. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 172.93.14.182 (talk) 19:44, 1 November 2019 (UTC)

Hi IP. I must first say that this is one of the kindest messages I have received, so thank you. You may want to look at WP:CORP which tells you about the criteria all corporations must pass to have a Wiki article. I also recommend checking out WP:YFA for guidance. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 21:10, 1 November 2019 (UTC)

Hello[edit]

I don't understand why you deleted the page I was working on. LansdowneClub2313 (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 20:09, 1 November 2019 (UTC)

Hi LansdowneClub2313 and welcome to Wikipedia. I know it can be disappointing to have an article delete but there were no sources and it seems like a run-of-the-mill club. Don't be discouraged, making articles is tougher than it seems. I didn't make my first article until I was editing for months. Before making a new article, I recommend checking out The Wikipedia Adventure and WP:YFA. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 21:12, 1 November 2019 (UTC)

Yes, I was just basing it off another article that was very similar. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adelaide_Club LansdowneClub2313 (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 02:15, 2 November 2019 (UTC)

Right, that makes sense but in the first sentence it explains its significance and notability. They also have various in-depth sources. If you wish to re-create this article, I strongly recommend going through Help:Your first article. However, as stated earlier, making pages is more difficult than it looks. I recommend checking out the Wikipedia:Community portal to get more experience. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 02:18, 2 November 2019 (UTC)

New wiki page for Matt Lange[edit]

HickoryOughtShirt?4 Why did you delete my page for Matt Lange (Musician)? The articles you cited were links to Matt's booking agency (York Artists), where Matt is represented by lead agent/founder, Phil York and a recent podcast interview he did for Liquid Cinema. Matt Lange currently does not have a Wikipedia page and it's imperative that one be created. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Youngmanchris (talkcontribs) 16:05, 4 November 2019 (UTC)

Hi Youngmanchris and welcome to Wikipedia. It is pretty obvious you have a conflict of interest with this person and are therefore subject to some bias. Sources linking to his booking agency are not appropriate for Wikipedia as we rely on third party sources. I don't see why it is "imperative that one be created" unless, as stated above, you have a conflict of interest. If this is so, you must follow our conflict of interest guidelines, specifically WP:DISCLOSE. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 17:35, 4 November 2019 (UTC)

Glasgow Life[edit]

Glasgow Life was recently approved for speedy deletion by yourself, and I'd seek to contest the deletion basis it is a promotional or irrelevant article regarding an organisation. I've gone into more detail on Cassiopeia's talk page, and written up an initial justification for the existence of the piece on my talk page. At very least, looking to get the markup made available to me. With thanks for your time

Rleyton (talk) 10:13, 9 November 2019 (UTC)

Just to add my voice to this. You have made an error in deleting this page. I would strongly urge you to reconsider. Alternatively, why not defer to a local Scottish admin who will have a better understanding of the context of Scotland's municipal organisations, much in the same way one might to someone discussing a canadian subject might to you. pm098172 15:04, 9 November 2019 (UTC)

Wow Connormah, very cool dude and nicely put together article. I'm not sure if you were asking me to help with hook suggestions but a few caught my eye. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 01:17, 14 November 2019 (UTC)
ALT0: ....that Ralph Mellanby became the producer of Hockey Night in Canada in 1966 and hired personalities including Ron MacLean, Don Cherry, and Howie Meeker?
ALT1: ....that Canadian sportscaster and television producer Ralph Mellanby received five Emmy Awards, two Kennedy Awards, and a Lifetime Achievement Award from Sports Media Canada during his career?
ALT2: ....that Ralph Mellanby, producer of Hockey Night in Canada, oversaw the implementation of slow motion replay and microphone and camera setups throughout the rink enhance the viewer experience?
Thanks! Was thinking something along the lines of ALT0 or ALT2 but was unsure of wording. Will hopefully nominate it later today or tomorrow. Connormah (talk) 13:51, 14 November 2019 (UTC)

Hi Picrosso. Unfortunately, Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and the page has been deleted. I recommend creating articles through WP:YFA, where experienced editors will review it before it goes into mainspace. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 15:48, 15 November 2019 (UTC)

Many thanks for your latest message re: copyright. I understand about the seriousness on copyright abuse, in my previous guise my journalistic endeavours were often used by others. It just seems somewhat Draconian that a page with 2 short paragraphs should be deleted especially when : 1 I am a member of the organisation that wrote the original text; 2 I volunteer at the library; 3 I was asked to have a try at putting a page together on Wikipedia at their latest AGM; 4 The paragraphs concerned were to act as holding text prior to being rewritten. Following your deletion I assume that I have to redraft the page with all the other items that DID NOT abuse copyright. Perhaps a better method would be to allow contributors to correct their mistakes within an allowed timescale with errors highlighted, I don't know. Picrosso — Preceding unsigned comment added by Picrosso (talkcontribs) 16:25, 15 November 2019 (UTC)

Hi Picrosso, and thanks for the response. I absolutely see your point but we have no way of knowing these facts.

EnergyWatch LLC Deletion 2.0[edit]

Hi there, thanks for working diligently to keep Wikipedia true. I noticed you deleted my page EnergyWatch, LLC for the second time. Did you read the full article? It states facts and is not promoting the business. I would like to ask what the difference is between it and a page like this one, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EnergyCAP ? Both are not promoting a business but stating facts about a software. Please advise if there are specific changes that can be made to keep it up? Its been entirely rewritten since the last time. Thank you very much.

Google Code-In 2019 is coming - please mentor some documentation tasks![edit]

Hello,

Google Code-In, Google-organized contest in which the Wikimedia Foundation participates, starts in a few weeks. This contest is about taking high school students into the world of opensource. I'm sending you this message because you recently edited a documentation page at the English Wikipedia.

I would like to ask you to take part in Google Code-In as a mentor. That would mean to prepare at least one task (it can be documentation related, or something else - the other categories are Code, Design, Quality Assurance and Outreach) for the participants, and help the student to complete it. Please sign up at the contest page and send us your Google account address to google-code-in-admins@lists.wikimedia.org, so we can invite you in!

From my own experience, Google Code-In can be fun, you can make several new friends, attract new people to your wiki and make them part of your community.

If you have any questions, please let us know at google-code-in-admins@lists.wikimedia.org.

Thank you!

Again, you are very clearly ReutersAgency or a friend of theirs. This would be a very large coincidence that after I block ReutersAgency for a promotional username you come along and add the exact same material. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 22:32, 29 November 2019 (UTC)

re:[edit]

Well as a Carolina Hurricanes fan, I know what we call him. We sometimes call him "Mr. Bo-Time" because he is a top power-play scorer. If you are unaware, the morning after the Carolina Hurricanes score a goal on the power-play, you go into a participating Bojangles' and say "I'm a caniac, and it's bo-time" to receive a free bo-berry biscuit. I may have made edits in the past that are acts of vandalism but were only meant as a joke. This, however, is true. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bentheswimmer11 (talkcontribs) 22:55, 3 December 2019 (UTC)

DYK for Rick Cluff[edit]

Updated DYK query.svgOn 4 December 2019, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Rick Cluff, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that radio host Rick Cluff (pictured) accepted a position at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation despite his father's belief it was "full of left-wing communists" and that radio was "a dead-end career"? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Rick Cluff. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Rick Cluff), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

Sloane Skylar Page Deletion[edit]

Hello, I'm contacting you on behalf of Sloane Skylar, an artist I represent. I noticed that the page I recently created for my client was deleted - I would like to know the reason why and what adjustments can be made to make the page public again. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sloanecrowdsurf (talkcontribs) 03:30, 4 December 2019 (UTC)

Hi Sloanecrowdsurf and welcome to Wikipedia. There are a few items that need to be noted here. Firstly, you must not edit without disclosing any financial connections you have per our Wikimedia Terms of Use. You can post such a mandatory disclosure to your user page. Secondly, your best bet would be to walk away. Us volunteer editors often resent that paid or conflict of interest editors write non-neutrally, displaying obvious bias toward themselves or their clients, and write promotionally. A neutral point of view is one of the five pillars of Wikipedia, and is non-negotiable. All of your edits are being added to promote your client. The encyclopedia is here for knowledge, it isn't here to be used as a personal website. If you really want to follow our guidelines please review the following pages: WP:NPOV, WP:RS, and WP:Notability. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 04:26, 4 December 2019 (UTC)

Staala gwaii[edit]

Noticed you had marked the Staala gwaii article for speedy deletion.

Fair enough.

I have uploaded a new version, just as something to start building on, and am concerned it may be marked for deletion again. This creature is a unique relict species, and deserves its own wikipedia entry. Is there any other reason this page would be marked for deletion again?

Thank you for your patience as I begin to participate more by starting new articles and familiarize myself more with the systems and rules of wikipedia content creation. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Shoutsofvictory (talkcontribs) 18:55, 4 December 2019 (UTC)

Adding Information on Wikipedia article is COI[edit]

In December 2017, Prezzee appointed Cliff Rosenberg to its board.[1]

is above information is promotional or indicating that this is COI. Why are you reverting my edits? Please clarify! 2405:204:122F:EDD7:D5E9:3CE4:91AE:1F2B (talk) 09:03, 8 December 2019 (UTC)
Hi IP and JustanWave and welcome to Wikipedia. I don't know what that link leads you to, but to me it just leads to a page about subscribing. As well, it is beyond just that information. This article was created in violation of our Wikimedia Terms of Use. Did you know that if you have any financial connection whatsoever with this organization you must WP:DISCLOSE it per our Wikimedia Terms of Use?

Near Field Communication[edit]

Hey, HickoryOughtShirt?4.

I'm pretty new to this so I apologise if I haven't provided any reputable citations.

I've added some pretty genuine use cases for Near Field Communication in my contributions and I imagine that there would be many who could benefit from this knowledge. Additionally, I have also contributed additional information to the timeline which reflects major events relating to NFC technology, namely - "September 2018 - Apple released the iPhone XR, iPhone XS and iPhone XS MAX. Prior to these, iPhone's were not able to natively read NFC Tags. Since the iPhone XS release, Apple has enabled native reading of NDEF format NFC Tags without any apps."

I do confirm affiliation with Neuroe, however, I mention Neuroe specifically because there is no other, easily accessible, online platform that offers an easy marketing solution to NFC. As an end-user, if I was considering using NFC for marketing, I personally would think that it may be too hard to understand or implement, nor have the correct tools to be able to implement. There is a genuine disadvantage for those interested in understanding how they can use this if it is not mentioned.

I find the information I have added to be resourceful to the reader and hope for you to reconsider if I am able to provide a more reputable citation.

Regards,

Neuroe NFC (talk) 01:57, 10 December 2019 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Neuroe NFC (talkcontribs) 01:54, 10 December 2019 (UTC)

Hi Neuroe NFC and welcome to Wikipedia. Thank you so much for disclosing your conflict of interest. Please make sure to also do it on your userpage (the red link where your username is) and on Talk:Near Field Communication per our Wikimedia Terms of Use. Here is the main issue; besides the content being unsourced it was very promotional. Please suggest edits on Talk:Near Field Communication using WP:Edit requests. This is the only way the Wiki community is comfortable with COI editors. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 02:00, 10 December 2019 (UTC)

Going over an article for suitability[edit]

Would you be able to go over my article I recently added to (edited and added and translated information) and give me feedback on it?

Thanks, Frasererin01

P.S. Please be aware that I do not know how to get rid of the link down below as I am still fairly new :P
