Thanks for catching my screwup. Yours, Quis separabit? 03:24, 6 January 2019 (UTC)

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)


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)




Should get done relatively soon

Not so important right now

DYK for Vladimír Kostka[edit]

You should consider nominating Kostka for DYK as the inventor of the left wing lock. Flibirigit (talk) 05:42, 27 January 2019 (UTC)

Flibirigit Thanks, I was considering it. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 05:46, 27 January 2019 (UTC)
Flibirigit The issue is the sources don't explicitly call it "left wing lock." They say "defensive left wing strategy" or other key words, which might just be a "lost in translation" issue. If you look at this source (not in English, sorry) the description matches "left wing lock" without specifically stating it. As well, if you look at the left wing lock Wiki page it specifically says "The "lock" was invented in Czechoslovakia to work against the dominant Soviet teams of the 1970s" and using the sources/context this is clearly the strategy but it doesn't explicitly use the term "lock". I think that might be an issue for DYK. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 05:58, 27 January 2019 (UTC)
I will try to look at that in more detail tomorrow. One idea that comes to mind is saying something like... "Kostka invented a defensive system comparable to/later known as the left wing lock?" Flibirigit (talk) 15:34, 27 January 2019 (UTC)
You could also word it around a system that ended Soviet dominance in ice hockey. Did you explore the citation at the left wing lock article itself? Flibirigit (talk) 15:49, 27 January 2019 (UTC)
I did look at the LW article. The citation says exactly what's in the article. They just say that Czechoslovakia invented it to beat the Soviets during the WC in the 1970s without specifying a name. I'm at work right now but I can examine it more after. Thank you for the suggestions. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 16:44, 27 January 2019 (UTC)

Sigma Sound Studios Contribution[edit]


I hope this message finds you well. I am reaching out because you deleted my Sigma Sound Studios contribution about Temple University. I linked the page from which the content derived, therefore I do not understand the grounds for which that action was justified. I am new to the Wiki-verse, and am eager to learn the proper protocol as I go along my probationary contribution period to becoming a full blown contributor.

Thank you very much for your feedback,

-jh3857 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jh3857 (talkcontribs) 20:58, 24 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi jh3857 and welcome to Wikipedia. I am happy to help and I already posted a welcome message to your talk page with helpful links. I am very glad this experience hasn't detered you from editing Wikipedia, it is really a fun place.
Regarding the copyright comment – I found that the content that you copied was published under Temple University and I saw that Temple University states copyright "All rights reserved" on their home pages. Therefore, I assumed the copyright still fell under that. The libraries copyright policy is focused on school based work and this seems to be focused on research specifc examples. You are free to re-add it in your own words though. However, I don't claim to be a copyright expert so I'm going to ask at the WP:HELPDESK (a Wikipedia specific helpdesk, be sure to check it out!) to make sure I am following Wikipedia guidelines properly and giving out correct information. If I was wrong, I fully apologize and thank you for bringing it to my attention. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 21:40, 24 January 2019 (UTC)
jh3857 So It looks like the content is copyrighted [4] but feel free to translate the information into your own words. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 05:55, 25 January 2019 (UTC)

I appreciate you for following up with me as I learn the ropes of Wikipedia, thank you! I hope you have a terrific day. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jh3857 (talkcontribs) 16:25, 31 January 2019 (UTC)

Regarding editing in Anu Malik wikipedia article[edit]

Dear HickoryOughtShirt?4, Please can you explain to me why you are not allowing to edit Anu Malik Wikipedia Article?

Regards, Manu0005 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Manu0005 (talkcontribs) 04:03, 29 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi Manu0005 and welcome to wikipedia. Have you seen the messages I posted on your talk page? Your edits are a bit controversial as most editors agree with this content being added to the page. I suggest you check out our neutral point of view policy. Removing this information is a form of "whitewashing" and is necessary to be added to the page since it has affected his life (ie. losing his job at Idol). I suggest you start a discussion on the talk page, just follow the instruction I left on your talk page on how to do this. By the way, just to be clear, do you have any connection to this person whatsoever? Are you a manager or a friend? HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 04:08, 29 January 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for reply dear friend HickoryOughtShirt?4 (@HickoryOughtShirt?4:), I am not from Anu Malik office or Manager or either a friend of him but I'm his fan. He is working in Hindi Film Music for more than 35 years now. But this Me2 allegation suddenly came up. These are only Allegations on him as none of them had filed FIR in police yet. Until this, I think we can remove this Controversy section from his wiki article. He is doing good work and why should we support these Allegations and dishonor Anu Malik. So I like to remove this Controversy Section from his Article. As I have seen it's not mentioned in any other Celebrity's article its mentioned. So please help me to remove this. Thanks

Hi again Manu0005. Please bring your opinions to the discussion at WP:BLPN (look for the section titled "Anu Malik") but again I must point you to WP:NPOV. I understand the sensitivities to accusations as such but we also don't just remove negative information because the person is "doing good work and why should we support these Allegations and dishonor Anu Malik." The Enclyopedia needs to show both sides, especially considering this has affected his job/life. However, since a few people have raised these points, the discussion at WP:BLPN is to decide whether they are valid or not. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 06:00, 29 January 2019 (UTC)

@HickoryOughtShirt?4: on federal Institute of science and technology[edit]

Hi Kirenpaul and welcome to Wikipedia. Part of the problem with your edits was the alumni section. If an alumnus doesn't have a Wikipedia page they usually aren't considered notable. Consider creating a draft for them using WP:YFA.HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 10:24, 29 January 2019 (UTC)

Autopatrolled granted[edit]

Wikipedia Autopatrolled.svg

Hi HickoryOughtShirt?4, I just wanted to let you know that I have added the "autopatrolled" permission to your account, as you have created numerous, valid articles. This feature will have no effect on your editing, and is simply intended to reduce the workload on new page patrollers. For more information on the autopatrolled right, see Wikipedia:Autopatrolled.

Hi Albertogiurioli and welcome to Wikipedia. There is a clear conflict of interest here based on your username and edits. You need to follow our COI policy as posted on your user page or risk being blocked. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 16:48, 31 January 2019 (UTC)

Problem editing an entry[edit]

Hi, This is the first time I have tried to edit a page and I have obviously made some mistakes - for which I apologise. I was trying to update some of the info on the Orana Steiner School website, in particular the Principal's details (someone keeps changing it to "God knows who" and making claims about people dying of measles at the school...). I copied and pasted what I thought was innocuous info from the school's website info page, but I guess it was deemed as advertising. I'm not sure of how much info I can put on there, but the page is currently very empty and partially incorrect. Any guidance would be most gratefulHarrietscd (talk) 09:23, 6 February 2019 (UTC)

Hi Harrietscd and welcome to Wikipedia. There were a few problems with your edits. Firstly, as you admitted, it was directly copied from the school's website. You can only copy/translate a small amount of a source, and you must mark what you take as a direct quotation with double quotation marks (") and cite the source using an inline citation. You can read about this at Wikipedia:Non-free content in the sections on "text". See also Help:Referencing for beginners, for how to cite sources here. Aside from limited quotation, you must put all information in your own words and structure, in proper paraphrase. Following the source's words too closely can create copyright problems, so it is not permitted here; see Wikipedia:Close paraphrasing. Secondly, if you have a conflict of interest with this topic, please understand that any financial relationship must be disclosed. Unfortunately, If you have any more questions I don't think I can answer them promptly because of the time difference between us. I recommend checking out the Wikipedia:Teahouse, a help desk for beginners instead. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 09:37, 6 February 2019 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Seetaram Vidyalaya Baba Chouraha[edit]

Hello HickoryOughtShirt?4. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Seetaram Vidyalaya Baba Chouraha, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: This appears to be modeled on the website, but - "This College was established in 1947" - to be about a different insitution -"This College was established in 2001". Thank you. Shirt58 (talk) 09:58, 7 February 2019 (UTC)

Skip Snead entry on Upland High School[edit]

Hi! I still need to create a page for myself because, after more than 25 years in the surf world, I have made a name for myself. I feel I am a legit, notable entry for notable alumni under Upland High School... I created the Surfing Airshow, which is world famous surfing events. If you google search Surfing Airshow you will see how many articles come up, and if you search Skip Snead Surfing Airshow, you will see my name linked as the Founder of the events.

I was also Editor of Surfing Magazine for many years. A notable publication that was world famous for more than 50 years and the most popular surf magazine in the world.

Thanks for reaching out!!

I want to create a Skip Snead page for my kids so they have something they can talk about with their friends!! I feel I earned my place and put in the time!

Have an awesome day!! Go Canucks!!! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ghettojuice (talkcontribs) 00:57, 9 February 2019 (UTC)

Hi Ghettojuice and welcome to Wikipedia. While I love your enthusiasm to edit Wikipedia, I must tell you it is strongly recommended you do not create an Wikipedia:Autobiography. It is a direct example of something that is against our conflict of interest policy. The reason I reverted your edit was because you do not have a Wikipedia page, something that, in general, someone should have before being added to most lists. While I know you want to create a Wikipedia page, you should not edit more without declaring your conflict of interest (see WP:DISCLOSE) and giving Wikipedia:An article about yourself isn't necessarily a good thing a read. An article about yourself isn't always the best idea. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 01:24, 9 February 2019 (UTC)

Skip Snead entry on Upland High School[edit]

My friend was the one who suggested I should be on there and have a page ... should I just have him write it? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ghettojuice (talkcontribs) 01:00, 13 February 2019 (UTC)

Hi Ghettojuice and welcome back. That is a good question. Unfortunately, that would still fall under the conflict of interest policy. They can, however, submit one through articles for creation (AfC) but they must declare their connection to you (they can do so following WP:DISCLOSE). Editing without declaring is a direct violation of our COI policy and could result in, amongst many things, a block and your article unable to be recreated. What AfC does is create a draft that can then be submitted for an experienced editor to review it. This is really the only way COI editor should create pages that makes the community comfortable.

  • Well, that's your job, if you want the edit to stay. But that edit cannot stay anyway, since it's a rather randomly thrown in and poorly written comment that breaks the layout of the page--and it lacks secondary sources. Drmies (talk) 01:05, 13 February 2019 (UTC)

Tyler Dooley's name does not belong ...[edit]

Hello there, thank you for getting back to me. I'm a general member of the public who defends the Duchess of Sussex. I was APPALLED to see Tyler Dooley's name on Meghan, Duchess of Sussex's Wiki page. He is 1/4 nephew as the son of her 1/2-brother. He's a shameless, opportunistic grifter who lies to the media for money. He last saw Meghan when he was 6 years old. He is now 27 I believe, and he's on her page?? Why? The last interview for pay he did with The Daily Mail he said he had spoken to her two years ago, a complete fabrication. There is zero relationship. He also has a brother, but why isn't his brother here and only Tyler? Makes no sense to even HAVE this [redacted] individual on the Wiki page of a member of royalty. [redacted]

Please remove this name, thank you. Her father's and mother's name should be there only. [redacted] To see his name here frankly sickened me, as I'm sure it did many others.

Hi Blackie49583 and welcome to Wikipedia. You should take these issues to the article's talk page and stop using multiple IPs to remove his name. This is not how Wikipedia works. We work on WP:CONSENSUS not persistent, and disruptive, editing. As well, please be advised of WP:BLP. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 01:39, 13 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Blackie49583, you need to read this, WP:BLP, and then you will understand why I removed some of your comments and have scrubbed them from the history. Do NOT use this kind of language of Wikipedia, regardless of how you feel. Drmies (talk) 01:42, 13 February 2019 (UTC)
Drmies Never be sorry for cutting in, you're very helpful. Just for full context, this has been going on for a while and has caused the page to be protected. So called members of the public like (talk · contribs · WHOIS) have been making such edits for a long time.HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 01:44, 13 February 2019 (UTC)

The article is out of date and needs to be updated. There have been no violations I am aware of. This is apparently not an area of your expertise. Please advise as these changes are failing to live up to Wikipedia's stated goal...

Hello Boomslang. What you said above is true but you have also been pointed to our guidelines about COI editing and making sure everything is properly sourced which is important to reaching Wikipedia's goal. All of your additions have been promotional (which goes against Wkkipedia's stated goal) and you have used sock puppets or meat puppets to re-add this information, leading to a block.

Thank you,

@JSantoliquito: hello and welcome back to Wikipedia. Yes, I have been watching the page because of an influx of vandalism but I wasn't watching it for you. No one owns the page, even if you made it, and especially not if it's about you. The edits you are making are super promotional, basically just spamming every article you've written that's been mentioned in some regular media, and the article has now been PROD'd. You were warned in 2015 about this too so I urge you to be cautious since you know about your COI polices. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 16:57, 20 February 2019 (UTC)

RE ANI[edit]

Idk, I couldn't remember anything. However, [5]

That's all I got. Pretty much Special:Contributions/ matched with the tag filter mobile web edit gets so-so comparable results. That isn't even really worth bring to SPI for, so I am sorry I was not able to assist you further. ―Matthew J. Long -Talk- 06:21, 21 February 2019 (UTC)

MattLongCT No, no, thank you so much for the followup! It's a place to start. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 06:23, 21 February 2019 (UTC)
Also, (and I literally just found this) Samar Baniya. This user sorta reminds of Maandhozzgrg, but not by much. This has been a tricky thing for me to try and identify. The problem with a lot of these Nepalese editors (such as Special:Contributions/Binirmad, Special:Contributions/Samar Baniya, and Special:Contributions/Shubham uprety) is that will make a few to a LOT of edits in a limit set of articles and then vanish. I can't tie them to a single profile or set of behaviors. I couldn't even track down a single region since the ip's stretch from Jhapa to Kathmandu. That could be (and probably is) just about anyone! My best guess is that they aren't a SOCK or that they are really good at hiding it. ―Matthew J. Long -Talk- 06:34, 21 February 2019 (UTC)

I've blocked the IP[edit]

Yup, I have. Bishonen | talk 19:53, 22 February 2019 (UTC).

Bishonen Thanks for the quick work! Do you think it would be a good idea to protect the talk page (Talk:HIV/AIDS denialism)? HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 19:55, 22 February 2019 (UTC)
I'm going to leave it open for editing for the time being. I just extended the block to the IP range in order to put a stop to the IP hopping disruption. I'm leaving it unprotected on purpose (just for now) so that the user can add additional disruption there (if possible). This way, I can easily catch, revert, and extend the block. Protecting the page would make the user just move their disruption elsewhere, which would make it harder for us to stop and take care of. Sometimes, it's better not to protect a page in certain situations... at least right away. ;-) Pinging Bishonen to send an FYI regarding the change to the block. ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 20:16, 22 February 2019 (UTC)

Regarding Page Omalloor.[edit]

Hi, It has been observed that you are deliberately inserting inappropriate contents in the Omalloor (Omallur) Wikipedia page. I request you to kindly stop these. Please let me know if I have reported these by mistake — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bigi Philip (talkcontribs) 12:46, 24 February 2019 (UTC)

Hi Bigi Philip and welcome to Wikipedia. I'm pretty sure you've reported these by mistake because if you see the edit I reverted [6] that was clearly vandalism (blanking the page) and I was just reverting it. I'm sorry if you disagree with the content my reverted re-added but that isn't vandalism in my opinion. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 14:37, 24 February 2019 (UTC).

@HickoryOughtShirt?4:: Sorry to report your edit as vandalism, I have undone the warning message here and will be more cautious in future. I am from the place Omalloor mentioned in the page and I tried to provide the facts, to the best of my knowledge. If you have the privileges can you kindly change the page name to Omalloor? The current one 'Omallur' is incorrect.

DYK for Philippe Lacarrière[edit]

Updated DYK query.svgOn 25 February 2019, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Philippe Lacarrière, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status.

The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Philippe Lacarrière. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Philippe Lacarrière), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000.

Hi Philadelphia1993 and welcome to Wikipedia. Did you not see the warning Roxy the dog left on your first account EaglesPR1? Please do not use Wikipedia as a vehicle for self promotion. All of your edits have been super promotional (ie. not having a neutral point of view) and, I believe, copied directly from a source. Please stop creating new accounts to promote your subject.

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)

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)
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 availabe in the Houston & Shoalts book on Eagleson. It's an interesting read if you can get a copy.

Joel Creasey[edit]

Hi there, I made an edit on this page and it keeps reverting back to an original version. How can I stop this from happening?

Jcmgmt (talk) 23:27, 5 March 2019 (UTC)

Hi Jcmgmt and welcome to Wikipedia. You stated here that you were Creasey's management and I have since left you a message on your talk page about the proper disclosures that must be done to continue editing. If you are paid directly or indirectly by the organisation you are writing about, you are required by the Wikimedia Terms of Use to disclose your employer, client and affiliation. You can post such a mandatory disclosure to your user page (click the red link). Afterwards, you need to use WP:Edit requests (see Wikipedia:Simple conflict of interest edit request) on the articles talk page in order for information to be added. Your edit requests should be sourced and neurally worded. All of your edits so far have been unsourced and wholly promotional. One of Wikipedia's five pillars is maintaining a neutral point of view and it is non-negotiable. Please understand that paid editors are strongly discouraged from editing Wikipedia. We do not resent the fact that you are being paid to do what we do without pay. We are amateurs in the archaic sense of that word, people engaged in an activity "for love". However, we amateur editors do resent that paid editors write non-neutrally, displaying obvious bias toward their clients, writing promotionally, and without a neutral point of view. Amateur editors are especially deeply resentful when paid editors ask for help because they say that they "need" it for their clients. The encyclopedia doesn't need to help your clients, even if your clients need business, which they can find by advertising on their own web sites. So follow the advice that I have given. Your submissions will be reviewed by amateur editors, but you cannot expect that we will clean up your submissions to make them neutral or remove promotional content. We will be glad to answer questions about Wikipedia policies and guidelines, and we will review your submissions. It is your job to write your submissions verifiably and neutrally.

Sanctuary Lakes Resort[edit]

Hi, Hick. I thought I'd PROD that Sanctuary Lakes Resort that you cleaned up from a pure advertisement — it's still not really sourced, or notable. I just want to ask you first about the single footnote, (a dead link). I assumed at first User:SLResidents had added it, but no, it looks from the history like you did.[7] Really? I mean, it's kind of useless, and doesn't look from the name as if it would be a reliable source even if it wasn't dead. Did it come from somewhere in the history? Bishonen | talk 10:22, 8 March 2019 (UTC).

Bishonen Hi Bishonen and thanks for taking the initiative. I was debating PROD or AFD but thought I'd sleep on it. Regarding the link, that came from the page history. All I did was revert the COI. Thanks for the follow up though! HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 14:07, 8 March 2019 (UTC)

it was very constructive because he is an animal abuser.

Hi IP and welcome to Wikipedia. While he was charged and jailed for animal abuse that is not why he has a Wikipedia page. Therefore, it should probably not be in the first sentence of the page (see MOS:FIRST). We have to be careful when discussing biography of living people and make sure everything is neutrally worded and balanced. Looking in the page history, people object to adding this line in the lead so therefore I suggest you discuss this on Talk:Terrence Cody. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 05:06, 9 March 2019 (UTC)

rejected draft[edit]

Hello again, HickoryOughtShirt?4.

As per your suggestion, I created a draft of my revision of Jodie Markell's wikipedia entry and submitted it for review. It has just been rejected because a page for Jodie Markell already exists. The reviewer suggested that I instead make the changes to the already existing page. But...I did that, and the changes were deleted! So I am not sure what to do! I disclosed in the notes that I am a professional editor and have been hired to make changes to Markell's entry. I am happy to have these changes reviewed/verified by another editor--but I don't understand how to accomplish that! Could you review it for me? Julia VanDevelder (talk) 16:18, 9 March 2019 (UTC)Julia VanDevelder

Hi Julia VanDevelder and welcome to Wikipedia. I apologize for not responding earlier, I was asleep. I know Wikipedia can be a challenge to navigate (it really is a learning process) so I appreciate that you have shown kindness and a willingness to follow policy. I am busy at the moment so I am unable to review your draft but I have left a message for the editor who rejected your draft explaining your situation. If they are able to, I have asked them to re-review your draft. You can also make WP:Edit Requests on the articles talk page.HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 17:16, 9 March 2019 (UTC)


You deleted and asked me for a source on the Emil Pettersson edit, the only thing I can say is that I'm Swedish and that everyone's info is on display here on sites like,,,, et cetera, (like this:Ånge/Karl-Emil-Ilmari-Pettersson-1994/bvdw2-4kt8q) unless you have protected identity, which is not that common. I don't care that much about the edit in question though, so it can stand the way you want it to. I just wanted you to know I'm a serious hockey historian.

Hi Fairhop and thank you for this message. I want to reassure you that I was by no means questioning your knowledge of hockey or your seriousness of the sport when I reverted you, I was just following WP:BLP and WP:V. I know Swedish hockey players tend to have unique names like that (eg. William Nylander) but I also consider myself a pretty hard stickler when it comes to adding reliable sources to BLPs. I'm also pretty sure merinfo.s,, and do not pass our reliable source criteria. I honestly don't mind adding in the middle name if you can find a reliable source but it just has to pass WP:RS. I know a lot of people's middle names aren't sourced here and it becomes an issue when people vandalize someone's unsourced middle name and we have no idea for months (see this discussion for example). HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 23:00, 9 March 2019 (UTC)
No worries. I have better things to do than to search for a "reliable source" on this particular player though. :)

@Flibirigit: A time of floppy disks, Microfiche, and easier airport security Face-smile.svg. No, I am aware that it might not help with this arena but I also noticed some areas were severely lacking in sources (such as Aréna Iamgold which was created in 1951) so I thought it might be helpful there too. As well, I think it would be immensely helpful for the purposes of expanding IIHF Hall of Famers and when researching historical women for Women in Red edit-a-thons (of which I am planning, or plan to attend, many of this year). HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 03:29, 14 March 2019 (UTC)
The Newspaperarchives are great for American history. They are not so good for world history unless something was published in the USA. As for Canada, the archives are limited. It's mostly western news. I rely a lot on the Winnipeg Free Press for information. It takes a while to learn how to clip and save. It's worthwhile for that missing history though.

Thank you for sending me a message about the removal of Dunton Rainville. Dunton Rainville occupies two floors in the tower. Could you please let me know how this is promotional? The other companies listed in the "Tenants" section also occupy floors.

Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by DuntonRainville (talkcontribs) 20:11, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

Hi Dunton Rainville and welcome to Wikipedia. It is promotional because a) there is no page for that company as of yet and b) you are using Wikipedia to spam about your company. Please see WP:COI. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 20:24, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

Philip Ross[edit]

You might enjoy writing about Philip Ross. He is a Hockey Hall of Fame inductee, builder and journalist, and former player. His article could use some work if you have time! Flibirigit (talk) 23:26, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

I'll look into it, thanks! HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 23:29, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
