CSD tags

Hi there. I was clearing out CAT:CSD and had a couple of comments about some taggings of yours. First, please take heed of the note "articles should not be tagged for speedy deletion as having no context (CSD A1) or no content (CSD A3) moments after creation, as not all users will place all their information in their first revision" at the top of Special:NewPages. I noticed you tagged Isabeau (2011 film) less than 60 seconds after the author started it. It's better to wait at least 5 or 10 minutes before tagging A1s and A3s. Second, may I asked why you tagged a 7-year old redirect as an attack page here? 28bytes (talk) 22:23, 7 September 2011 (UTC)

About the first one, well I guess I was wrong. About the second one, I only found about it because an editor pointed it out to me after I taggedAnybody But Obama for deletion. the reason i tagged it was because it had no valid purpose on Wikipedia. It is not something that people will likely search and it is an attack against Bush. Apparently I wasn't wrong, considering it got deleted for hat reason, even though you removed the tag, JDDJS (talk) 22:30, 7 September 2011 (UTC)
I was surprised to see the redirect get deleted, but it's always possible I'm wrong! I've asked the deleting admin for his thoughts. Anyway, thanks for the reply, and for your work patrolling. 28bytes (talk) 22:33, 7 September 2011 (UTC)

Sabal Financial Group Page Help

Hi there,

We are trying to create a page for Sabal Financial Group, but it keeps getting deleted. We have reviewed the guidelines and have followed them, but our page keeps getting deleted. Can you please provide us with some guidance? Thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ideahall (talkcontribs) 21:39, 12 September 2011 (UTC)

Oh for goodness sake...

If you really object so much to Len Hutton as England captain just delete the damned thing. I won't contest it, I haven't really the energy. And thanks for the very condescending message. I haven't written much here before. --Sarastro1 (talk) 22:13, 12 September 2011 (UTC)

Redirect of "I Am Unicorn"

JDDJS, this is the second time in a row you've undone a new Glee episode page for a forthcoming show with a Redirect. I can understand the one for "The Purple Piano Project", because that one only had a title behind it. This time, there's a Fox press release, which is about as official as you get, plus the information from it, such as casting and a couple of lines of plot. This is all we had last season when setting up episodes, and indeed, it's all we had for "The Purple Piano Project" when we undid your redirect there. Can you explain why the press release isn't good enough any more, and what more would be required? Thanks. BlueMoonset (talk) 22:15, 12 September 2011 (UTC)

I redirected it because of WP:CRYSTAL. It will be notable but is not yet. The page currently has no information that can't be found or added to Glee (season 3). Read the first view point of WP:DEADLINE if you want a better of understanding my viewpoint. JDDJS (talk) 22:21, 12 September 2011 (UTC)

With all due respect, this appears to be a point on which reasonable people can easily disagree. However, I have added information that is new and not appropriate to the season 3 page to the article in question, and restored it. (Although I don't believe that individual episode guest-star lists are appropriate to a season page.) On the DEADLINE page, the second viewpoint, allowing a day or two for further sources to be gathered, sums up my point of view. We're both members of the Glee task force; might we be able to discuss this further on the task force talk page to come up with a modus vivendi going forward? Thanks! BTW, both this page and that talk page are on my Watchlist; no need to ping me on my page. BlueMoonset (talk) 04:14, 13 September 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Kiyoshi Yoshida

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles. If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

A tag has been placed on Kiyoshi Yoshida requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article, which appears to be about a real person, individual animal(s), an organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content, does not indicate how or why the subject of the article is important or significant: that is, why an article about it should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you can assert the notability of the subject, Speedy delete contest button.png. Clicking that button will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the article's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. You may freely add information to the article that would confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

See the guidelines for specific types of articles: biographies, websites, bands, or companies. Splouge (talk) 00:22, 13 September 2011 (UTC)

aargh... I shouldn't have re-posted the speedy deletion template. Splouge (talk) 00:28, 13 September 2011 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Kiyoshi Yoshida

The same editor has been adding very similar articles.

  1. Masaki Kurihara
  2. Kousuke Yamashita
  3. Makoto Yoshimori (composer)
  4. Keita Haga
  5. Junpei Fujita
  6. Hijiri Anze
  7. Ken muramatsu
  8. Akira Senju
  9. Takeshi Senoo
  10. Yasuharu Takanashi
  11. Akira Senju

Could you check these and add them to Yoshida's AfD if you feel they belong. Would be nice to decide once and for all if these types of brief stubs belong or not. Bgwhite (talk) 22:45, 13 September 2011 (UTC)

With the exceptions of Yasuharu Takanashi and Akira Senju (who at least have a couple of works listed), I have added those articles to the AFD. However, I probably added them wrong, so feel free to fix it. JDDJS (talk) 23:00, 13 September 2011 (UTC)
You forgot to put the AfD tag on the article, so I put it on them. Just spent an hour of my time trying to find reliable sources on them and couldn't find anything. Bgwhite (talk) 06:16, 14 September 2011 (UTC)

inre Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Nivedita Jain

I ask that you revisit the discussion, and recommend that rather than deletion, the article be tagged for expansion per available sources. Thanks. Schmidt, MICHAEL Q. 01:20, 18 September 2011 (UTC)

In its current state, the article does not show enough notability. If you expanded it to include some of the films she was in, some awards she has received, or something else to show that she is notable, I'll gladly close the AFD. But currently the article consists of 2 sentences, one reference, and empty sections; therefor it does not show notability. JDDJS (talk) 01:28, 18 September 2011 (UTC)
Not to quibble, but I am less convinced by arguments toward "Curent State" when the article is still so very new. Even now, the article asserts and sources notability by its stating that she was a film star, and offering that she was a former Miss Bangalore. As for it being a one-source stub, so what? I agree that it will benefit from expansion, and that is why I had just tagged if for issues. An article simply being brief is not always a cause to delete when the issue is otherwise improvable. And to underscore the sources I offered at the AFD, Notability requires only the existence of suitable independent, reliable sources, not their immediate citation.
With respects, we had a brand new article stub on a notable person, that with the best of intentions was tagged for A7 Speedy just 11 minutes after creation and while being actively edited.[1]. And less tan two hours after the speedy was removed by User:CactusWriter, it was sent to AFD.[2] As we have a reasonable and sourable assertion of notability, an article that has the potential for expansion and improvement, and one that is not a violation of WP:BLP or WP:NOT, let's let it grow through regular editing. Schmidt, MICHAEL Q. 01:57, 18 September 2011 (UTC)
This is a mater of a difference in opinion. I believe in the argument of Wikipedia:Beef up that first revision, in which the first revision should be kept to a certain standard. I admit that my first draft of articles aren't very good, but I always put in both award nominations and major roles of the actor when I do, so that it is clear that they are notable. JDDJS (talk) 02:16, 18 September 2011 (UTC)
The author could have done a better job, or perhaps held it in a sandbox until it was stronger... but Wikipdia has those editors who create a stub on a notable topic and then allow others to do impovements over time and through regular editing. To delete a demonstrably notable topic simply because its editor failed to create it bigger or better sourced is not for the ultimate good of the project. Letting something be fixed through regular editing is something of which I have great personal knowledge. Your offered essay links to the perhaps more cogent essays WP:PUTEFFORT which encourages others to improve on humble beginnngs, and WP:DEADLINE which instructs that perfection is not an immediate requirement. I personally find solace in WP:WIP and in determing the potential for improvement of even a stub by practice of the expected research into a topic. I see AFD as sometimes being used to hoist the perceived problem onto others... and yes, I'm willing to work on that stub even though my strengths are not in Kanada film stars... but is it reasonable to use an AFD to force the work of addressing surmountable issues onto others? Schmidt, MICHAEL Q. 03:21, 18 September 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for being a true Mensch.[3][4] Schmidt, MICHAEL Q. 04:50, 18 September 2011 (UTC)

A request

I've noticed you've been redirecting a lot of Monk and Psych-related articles for being simple plot outlines. I'm perfectly fine with this (and even support it, since people could just watch the episode if they care enough to read about it), but when you do this, would you mind removing links to the article from the respective episode lists? Thanks. I appreciate everything you've been doing around here. Kevinbrogers (talk) 05:08, 18 September 2011 (UTC)

You're right. That was just me being lazy. I'll make sure to do that from now on. JDDJS (talk) 15:16, 18 September 2011 (UTC)

Argument to Prior Discussion

I have read, thanks to some Wiki-browsing, this discussion with interest. I completely argue with your statement that "it will be notable, but is not yet". Because of the nature of the show, every single episode of Glee is notable. It can be reasonably assumed that every new episode of Glee will be notable.

With that said, I do agree that a page should not be created on nothing but a title, or information not confirmed in third party sources; by all means, those can go until more concrete information is found. But if there is a FOX press release announcing the episode, a storyline, and even if there's nothing else known, that is a valid source and the episode article can and should be created. Sure, we don't know what the songs are yet (First Listen Fridays is the best source for that information in advance of the show), but there is enough to start an article. Any reasonable editor will agree with me on this even without quoting all the policies applicable to this viewpoint. CycloneGU (talk) 22:01, 18 September 2011 (UTC)

Brothers & Sisters (Family Guy)

I am opposing your merge proposal, and therefore I have reverted your bold edit, so a discussion should take place rather than an edit war.—Ryūlóng (竜龙) 21:26, 24 September 2011 (UTC)

It was not a bold edit. The merger tag was on for almost a month and nobody objected to it. JDDJS (talk) 21:46, 24 September 2011 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Beer Walk!

Hi JDDJS, I just letting you know that I have redirected Beer Walk! to The Cleveland Show (season 2), Because the episode is not notable and is unsourced as well. Ring2011 (talk) 03:29, 26 September 2011 (UTC)


3RR

Your recent edits seem to have the appearance of edit warring after a review of the reverts you have made on Hot Water (American Dad)‎. Users are expected to collaborate and discuss with others and avoid editing disruptively.

Please be particularly aware, the three-revert rule states that:

  1. Making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24-hour period is almost always grounds for an immediate block.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss the changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. NJZombie (talk) 01:13, 27 September 2011 (UTC)

I feel I have done nothing wrong. I used edit summary to explain my actions. No other editor even tried to explain their actions. I left 2 messages on Grapesoda22's talk page, asking him to at least use an edit summary. He ignored this, and reverted my edit without an edit summary. Had he at least given a reason, I would have instead started a talk page discussion, or something. JDDJS (talk) 01:31, 27 September 2011 (UTC)
I don't disagree with you. Just the opposite in fact. Regardless of who's right or wrong though, you both need to be warned on edit warring. I left the same warning on Grapesoda22's talk page too. NJZombie (talk) 01:34, 27 September 2011 (UTC)

(#REDIRECT CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (season 4) not a notable episode)

Hi, I see you have been ploughing through most of season four and five of CSI and turning individual pages into redirects to the season page. I also see that you have transferred little or no information from the individual articles to the episode page. I wonder if you could link me to the notability guide you have used to come to this decision? Thanks. Scillystuff (talk) 17:50, 25 September 2011 (UTC)

That would be the general notability guideline. Those pages had little to none out of universe, and had few (if any) sources. There was nothing on the pages that needed to be transferred. Most of the pages didn't even have a complete plot summary. JDDJS (talk) 02:22, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
But you were redirecting one page every 20 to 30 seconds, which isn't really enough time to adequately review the contents or references. I was hoping that there was a consensus in one of the wikiprojects that you were working from rather than just your interpretation of GNG. In some cases you have removed relevant referenced information that isn't in the season guide which should be restored. Scillystuff (talk) 12:31, 27 September 2011 (UTC)
99% of the articles were just plot summary and unreferenced information and therefor nothing useful to transfer. When that episodes are in that condition, it is not worth having a discussion. I checked every article before I redirected to make sure the page didn't have a lot of useful sourced information. At most, these episodes only had on sourced and useful sentence, which I'm sorry if that's lost but overall it is not a big deal. JDDJS (talk) 18:17, 27 September 2011 (UTC)

You did not check every article. Spidey104 18:21, 27 September 2011 (UTC)

Actually I did. It is unreferenced and 99% plot. Just because it started a spin-off does not make it notable. The only reason why I didn't undo the recreation, is because I want to focus on the articles in which there is no reason what so ever to have its own page. JDDJS (talk) 18:27, 27 September 2011 (UTC)
How is the first appearance of an entire cast for a notable show not notable? Spidey104 18:47, 27 September 2011 (UTC)
Because there is not out of universe information. JDDJS (talk) 18:49, 27 September 2011 (UTC)
Notability is independent of quality of the article. The subject is notable, but the article about it is poorly written. A poorly written article about the September 11 attacks (for example) would make the subject no less notable. It would be a reason to improve the article, not to redirect it. Spidey104 19:16, 27 September 2011 (UTC)

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

Could you please explain on Talk: Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close why you consider the article to be non-neutral and having too few opinions? Specifically, what is missing? Without that info, the tags should not remain in the article. Qwyrxian (talk) 07:15, 27 September 2011 (UTC)

Pinky and the Brain

According to an Entertainment Weekly article, the voice actor for Brain in Pinky of the brain said something:

  • "LaMarche confirms that Brain was an extended Orson Welles impression and insists "the show is about the love" between his megalomaniacal mouse and sensitive pal Pinky, who does indeed embody the role of neglected spouse, apron and all."

Based on this, I added the sexuality section back to the article. WhisperToMe (talk) 03:50, 25 October 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion contested: Greek Clothing

Hello JDDJS, and thanks for patrolling new pages! I am just letting you know that I contested the speedy deletion of Greek Clothing, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: There is sufficient context to identify the subject of the article. You may wish to review the Criteria for Speedy Deletion before tagging further pages. Thank you. →Στc. 01:03, 2 November 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for patroling pages, Please note that i contested the deletion of Carlo Alberto Nucci

I did a major restructuring of the article. The original author did not do justice to Nucci, but I did :-) Maybe you can undo your tag ? Thank you in advance. the article is here Standard2211 (talk) 23:11, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

the article should not have been marked for speedy; in the version you see it, it asserted he was a full professor. Depending on whether he fulfills the criteria at WP:PROF, he might or might not be notable, but that assertion is an indication of some plausible importance, which is enough to satisfy CSD A7. The article greatly needed improvement but another editor took care of that. DGG ( talk ) 01:25, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

Hats galore

Thanks, I replied on my talk, but.... Look at these:

http://www.delmonicohatter.com/Merchant2/graphics/00000001/AW07-Trilby-Blue-225X.jpg Here is an example, quite classic, of a Borsalino Trilby.

http://rutgersjca.org/main/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/felt_trilby1.jpg?w=150 Here is another example of a plainer and less expensive Trilby.

http://www.infobarrel.com/media/image/39195.gif If you take a hard look at this classic fedora in a nameless but typical style, you'll see why a Trilby is always a fedora but not vice-versa!

http://www.aztexhats.com/images/multiple/jerseywoolstingydown_3.jpg Now here is what I think is portrayed in that photo there now on the article. It's known as a New Jersey stingy-brimmed fedora, but I just call it a "nasty-brim". Hate them!

http://images.hats.com/images/products/1_135976_TH.JPG Just as a comparison, this is a true pork pie. Also truly expensive in this form.

Again, I wonder why we couldn't just snatch a photo from one of these sources. There's no copyright infringement obviously, and I don't think the sites would mind if you either approached them and did a deal to label the photo "courtesy of", unless against policy.

I don't think we can use any of these images, but then again, I say why not? I don't really have a capable digital camera, though my hats do have character. And I don't have that many left now. Djathinkimacowboy 06:26, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

Looky:
http://images.villagehatshop.com/media/tyrolean-hat-hcx.jpg
Just wanted you to have a gander at one more fedora, this one known as the "Tyrolean" named after the Tyrol Mountains from whence it came. The Germans have always been handy at inventing new basic shapes - but they are all fedoras. I show you this because it is obvious this is also the Trilby shape.
Come back to reply on my talk page if you like. I want to know what you think now you see all these hats and what they're called, plus the fact that they are still types of fedoras. Djathinkimacowboy —Preceding undated comment added 05:20, 17 November 2011 (UTC).

The trouble with Trilbys

Hi J. What is funny is that painting of Rosenberg shows a typical Borsalino Company style fedora! It's not as far from a Trilby as one can get, but the brim is too wide. I think between what you placed, the new photo, and the Tyrolean style hat, THAT is a "Trilby".

What is important I think is to see it's only a silly name; what I mean is, do you think it's coincidence that around 1890 they begin to call these hats "fedora", then in a couple of years, again taking it from the title of a play, they begin to call them "Trilby"? It's one and the same anyway! Djathinkimacowboy 05:54, 18 November 2011 (UTC)

Die Semi-Hard

I have again reverted your changing of the article Die Semi-Hard to a redirect. Please note that you have yet to gain consensus on this move; please do so before making this change again. Thank you! 71.174.73.51 (talk) 23:20, 19 January 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for your reply on my talk page. I respectfully disagree with your stance, since you are essentially unilaterally deciding if a community-contributed resource is to continue to exist.
Your goals are in agreement with the rest of the project, and I have no reason to doubt that you are acting in good faith. However, you must recognize that the impact of your decision (to turn the article into a redirect) significantly reduces the article's chance of becoming more complete through the contributions of others. Secondly, you must have recognized that there was some objection to your change, and you should have recognized that your unilateral choice may not have been appropriate.
Finally, I reject your conclusion that the onus is on me to make the article acceptable to you. To put it bluntly: This isn't JDDJS-pedia. You and you alone are not the judge of this. Nor is it 71.174.73.51-pedia. Which is why when I made my previous reversions I asked that you refrain from turning it in to a redirect before seeking consensus on the matter.
There are many tools available for you to seek that consensus, and it was simply improper of you to, once again, turn the article into a redirect over others' protests (and yes, currently "others" is just one person, but that still should have been enough for you to work with the community, not work against it).
Accordingly, I ask that you undo your most recent change, and begin the process of soliciting community discussion for turning it into a redirect. 71.174.73.51 (talk) 01:09, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) 71, JDDJS is correct on this issue (that the article should be redirected). Unless you can provide evidence that the episode is independently notable, it should remain a redirect. However, JDDJS, if someone reverts you on a redirect, the easiest solution is just to take the article to AfD. That way there will be a community discussion, and the matter will be formally closed. Since individual television episodes are never notable unless they meet WP:GNG (i.e., that they have been substantially discussed in detail in multiple, independent reliable sources), the discussion will generally be totally painless and result in a deletion. I've put the article on my watchlist, and will take it to AfD myself if the 71 reverts again. Qwyrxian (talk) 04:49, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
This is rather insulting because it implies that I am in the wrong, even though JDDJS was the one who was in the wrong by failing to seek consensus, which you yourself highlighted as an issue. Why is there a presumption that I am acting in bad faith? 71.174.73.51 (talk) 13:26, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
JDDJS and Qwyrxian, we are at an impasse here. I really would like to resolve this without having to go through arbitration. At the same time, I need both of you to stop acting without consensus and stop presuming bad faith. So what is the next step? 71.174.73.51 (talk) 00:09, 26 January 2012 (UTC)
There is no assumption of bad faith here. If you really want it to be article, then go through the efforts of making it a decent article. An example of a good article for a television episode is I Am the Walrus (American Dad!). It doesn't have to be as good as that article, but that gives the general direction to go in.

WP:SOUTHPARK episode blanking

I am fascinated by how much time you spent on blanking many of the SP episode pages without asking for anybody's opinion or bothering to check through previous AfD discussions. It is even more fascinating how you go ahead and revert other editor's undoing of your edits with excuses like "you don't need anybody's approval for your edits unless there is a consensus against your view". Take this as a friendly reminder that there IS indeed a consensus against your actions and try to spend your energy building articles rather than rampaging, which makes other users waste their time to clean up the mess you produce. Also, remember that there is a wp:3R. Nergaal (talk) 18:46, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

I'm afraid I'll have to agree with the above sentiment. Why create all the redirects? The pages you re-direct to now re-direct to themselves. I have no doubt that the episode articles need to be improved, and are consist highly of original research, but I think some consensus should be built before effecting what is essentially the deletion of multiple articles that at least have *some* sources. I thought at first your actions were those of a vandal, but a check of your edit history shows that you are an experienced editor with a lot to give to the community. I guess I'm politely asking you to re-consider this particular course of action. Have a great day! 78.26 (talk) 05:29, 16 February 2012 (UTC)

Reflist

Setting reflist|30em allows the browser to adjust the column width depending on the screen monitor. It is a widely accepted improvement to a rigid reflist|2 (or reflist|3) which looks really bad on wide screens. Materialscientist (talk) 00:20, 22 March 2012 (UTC)

Actually I am using a wide screen and 30em does not look right when the article has less than 20 references. But I will not edit war over it. JDDJS (talk) 00:29, 22 March 2012 (UTC)
Yes, there is a threshold for the number of references to start introducing columns, and it depends on the screen width. Admittedly I rarely use wide screens, and when I do, I am unhappy about the layout of images and refs. This is a moot point to me, I just know that reflist|2 is being abandoned by many. Cheers.

Thanks for creating pages for Megan Lawrence and Da'Vine Joy Randolph! I've been working on creating pages for Tony nominees because I was surprised how many didn't have one despite plenty of information being available elsewhere on the internet to create a page with, and many of them have done more than enough to deserve their own page. Some of them though like Joan Ellis (Featured - Actress in a Musical 1979) - there is almost no information available on so it's a bit harder. Having the information on Wikipedia is a great resource for theatre folks like myself! Thanks Again and Happy Editing :) Rharrington112 (talk) 23:12, 4 May 2012 (UTC)

Punctuation reminder

It's great to see the new material being added to a number of character articles for Glee. Just a heads-up that when you include TV episode titles in articles, they need to have quotes around them, e.g., "Sexy". The same with titles of songs. I've noticed that you're pulling in segments of "Reception" sections from individual episode articles into the various character articles, which is why episode names need to be added in. Consider also trimming these reviews so they only comment on what's truly relevant to the character; non-essential details about the episode in general can be left on the cutting-room floor.

Not Notable?

Hello! I have a few question about being not notable of some articles HERE in Wikipedia. Some of the articles I've read was the article Party Pooper Pants which is one of the episodes of SpongeBob SquarePants. I think to myself, why is this article not notable, since it is a special and NOTABLE episode from the said HIT series. There are more not notable articles here in Wikipedia just like Wrimare School Inc.. I think this is not notable and should be redirected to Education in Bulacan or somewhere else. See, the article Party Pooper Pants is notable, why do you (User:JDDJS) think it is not notable? - 180.194.247.170 2012-07-24 (UTC)

The notability is stricter with things like television episodes because in cases like with the episode you named above, all of the relevant information can easily be merged with the season page, and there are never that many episodes in one season. There can be a lot of information on schools, and there can be a lot of schools in one area. As such, schools generally have a loser guideline for notability. See here for more information on episode's notabily, here for more information about school's notability and here for the general notability guidelines. JDDJS (talk) 17:51, 24 July 2012 (UTC)

Actually, it is vandalism. ClueBot [http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Good_Luck_Charlie&diff=prev&oldid=508524485%7Creverted} a similar edit by the same user on a different page and warned the IP not to do those edits. JDDJS (talk) 23:25, 21 August 2012 (UTC)
ClueBot is automated, and makes mistakes. Adding colors to an infobox is against the MOS, but is not actual vandalism. The IP added bgcolours that matched the logo; he/she is probably unfamiliar with the relevant guideline, and performed it in good faith. As I said, please be sure to only rollback clear-cut cases of vandalism. Thanks, TRLIJC19 (talkcontribs) 23:29, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

West point cadet sword Photo position change

I had to change it back as the photo is the most important photo, if you move it one would look at the first photo and think that is the sword that this article is about, it not. An editor forced me to put a photo of a standard military academy and explain the difference. If you want to change the standard to the position that you put the first sword in it would be fine with me but please change the reference points that point out each photo.

Roger (American Dad!)

See Talk:Roger (American Dad!)#Sexuality and Talk:Roger (American Dad!)#Gender=Male? for discussions regarding your recent edit. At Roger (American Dad!)#Personality, the first sentence quotes his character as self-identifying as "pansexual". The definition for Category:Fictional bisexuals is "Fictional characters who are identified as bisexual, pansexual or omnisexual. NOTE: Characters must be explicitly defined as bisexual and/or pansexual in order to qualify." That's apparently why the article was put in that category – based on the character's explicit quote.

Also, if you watch the show, the character is clearly written with qualities that are more male than female, not that it matters which they are (or if they have any gender at all), since they self-identify as pansexual, and the gender of the subject is not relevant.

If you don't agree, I think you need to obtain consensus (to change the definition of pansexuality, invalidate the quote, or something?) on the Talk page first, since there is clearly opposition to your POV in the previous discussions. —[AlanM1(talk)]— 17:45, 4 October 2012 (UTC)

What is the best way to handle/report an admin that you feel is abusing their power? I searched through several pages and could not determine where is the proper place to report them. The admin I would like to report is User:Pratyeka (who became an admin back in 2003, back when RFA was a lot simpler). On more than one occasion, Pratyeka has restored pages that had been deleted via AFD without without any discussion or fixing the issues with the page, instead acting within his own opinion. JDDJS (talk) 21:01, 24 January 2013 (UTC)

If you feel you have a solid case, you can report it at the administrators' incident noticeboard. Just out of curiosity - can you provide a few examples (with links) of this behaviour? m.o.p 21:22, 24 January 2013 (UTC)
Observe Hack Make and Nemerle. Both were nominated for deletion (WP:Articles for deletion/Observe Hack Make and WP:Articles for deletion/Nemerle and the consensus was to delete, but he restored the pages without a DRV or addressing the problems. He also has restored many articles that were deleted via PROD without fixing the problem such as OMAPI. While technically, that is not an abuse of power, it is not a good use of it either. JDDJS (talk) 21:35, 24 January 2013 (UTC)
To be fair, there was a DRV for Nemerle here, after which Pratyeka brought back the article. However, I can't find anything for Observe Hack Make, and the recreation of that page is troubling because it was done by undeleting old revisions, not starting an article from scratch... which involves using admin tools to overturn a unanimous community decision. So yeah, that's definitely something. We'll see what the discussion at ANI brings. m.o.p 21:53, 24 January 2013 (UTC)
I was under the impression that he restored it before the DRV, but it looks like he restored it in the middle of it. Still, it is an abuse of admin power to act based on a discussion that is not finished. JDDJS (talk) 22:01, 24 January 2013 (UTC)

Darren Criss

Hi! Could you please explain to me why you reverted back to the old format? I already incorporated some of the edits that Edgars had done. If you compare the two versions, you will see that Edgars omitted info that was perfectly acceptable to be included. I think my table format is more uniform, and it is easier to read. Also, could you please direct me to the wiki link for the "proper" table formatting for a Wikipedia page you are referring to? Thanks. Mimi C. (talk) 19:13, 28 January 2013 (UTC)

It is the way that almost every other biography on Wikipedia is. Additionally, your version has too much extra information, and is very confusing to navigate. JDDJS (talk) 19:21, 28 January 2013 (UTC)

Hi again! I'd like to draw your attention to this: [[5]] If you scroll down to the "Appropriate" section and open the "discography" and "awards" tables, you'll notice that the version of my tables is correct and acceptable by Wikipedia standards.

Maximiliano Hernandez

Do you have a personal vendetta against this guy? That's like the third time you've demanded his deletion. Rusted AutoParts 16:42, 26 May 2013 (UTC

I have never "demanded" his deletion. The first time, I simply nominated him for AFD because his most notable role apparently was in the Marvel movies, yet the part was so small, that even though I've seen all the movies multiple times, I had no idea who he was. Consensus agreed that he wasn't notable enough for his own page. The second time, I saw that his page was recreated as a redirect to his Marvel character. I am against real people redirecting to fictional people, so I nominated him for RFD, and again consensus agreed with me. The most recent time, I saw that it redirected to a user subpage. It is against Wikipedia policy to create redirects from the mainspace into user-space, so I filed it under the appropriate CSD, and an admin deleted in accordance to policy. Maybe one day he will be notable enough to have his own article. If his most recent TV role lasts, it might even be soon. But unless you have the sources to prove me wrong, that day is not today.

The article

JDDJS, I've seen the production order, and what it was really like, the arc 1's villain is Khyber, arc 2's is Malware, not Arc 3's, arc 3's is the Incursions, they can't just change the air dates and leave arc 3 episodes in the 2nd arc, switching places, neither can they switch arc 4's Ep. 5, with the 1st episode of arc 3, we need to know where the events truly take place, chronologically, that's why I did that

Adding more articles to an AfD nomination.

I saw on Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/List_of_fictional_films you mentioned you weren't sure how to include other articles in an AfD nomination. I think the accepted practice is to list and link to the other articles in the nomination, and add the appropriate AfD notice to the top of those pages. In the case of List of fictional films AfD, I believe

<!-- Please do not remove or change this AfD message until the issue is settled --> <!-- The nomination page for this article already existed when this tag was added. If this was because the article had been nominated for deletion before, and you wish to renominate it, please replace "page=List of fictional films" with "page=List of fictional films (2nd nomination)" below before proceeding with the nomination. -->{{Article for deletion/dated|page=List of fictional films|timestamp=20130817182245|year=2013|month=August|day=17|substed=yes|help=off}} <!-- For administrator use only: {{Old AfD multi|page=List of fictional films|date=17 August 2013|result='''keep'''}} --> <!-- End of AfD message, feel free to edit beyond this point -->

would be sufficient. (I copied that from List of fictional films.) OSborn arfcontribs. 19:13, 17 August 2013 (UTC)

Award pages

I appreciate your concern for not wanting separate pages but I have to disagree with you when you say that they don't need a separate page because there "aren't that many" awards. That's your opinion, and I have to point out that you didn't even bother getting consensus to revert back the entire page. It wasn't hurting anything having the awards section separate, and most actors have a separate awards page when it's more than just a couple. Plus it helps their own page not become overrun with text and info. If you find it absolutely necessary to revert back and put the awards back to the actors main page, then I insist you start a section on their talk page and get consensus before you do it again.

TV Broadcast section

Hello JDDJS,

Thank you for cleaning out all those broadcast sections that are A) ugly and B) go against MOS:TV. I wonder though if it could be handled better? The guideline certainly discourages listing broadcasts from all countries in the world in list form but I would think that having the information badly formatted is better than not having it at all. Whenever I come across articles like these I just take the five minutes to rewrite it according to the guidelines. Since there are only a few countries that typically qualify for mention (US, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand) it doesn't take that long and after you've done it a few times you basically are using the same template every time. SQGibbon (talk) 02:30, 4 September 2013 (UTC)

I ave to agree. Deleting the content completely is unconstructive. Reriting it in prose form, per the MOS, is a far better option. --AussieLegend () 03:23, 4 September 2013 (UTC)

Question and arguments about proposed deletion of International University Theatre Forum in Vilnius

Hello,

I just wanted to ask you why student festivals are not considered to be notable?

The festival about which I am referring is International University Theatre Forum in Vilnius. There are some things I want to mention:

1) It is organized by two biggest Lithuanian Universities - Vilnius University (one of the oldest universities in Northern Europe) and Vilnius Gediminas Technical University. So Forum is NOT created as students initiative.

2) It is not a private event and has a lot of viewers. Since theatre troupes from other countries are performing in their own languages, public of Forum is not restricted to residents of Vilnius or visitors from other Lithuanian cities. Tourists are also encouraged to come and watch performances.

3) This event is important in cultural context.

4) One of Forum guardians is AITU/IUTA (de l’Association internationale de théâtre à l’université / the International University Theatre Association).

Hi JDDJS, I see you reverted the 30em [6] back to 40. I couldn't see a reason, it seems a small thing so I thought I'd just ask directly. Widefox; talk 23:46, 16 December 2013 (UTC)

Because there are only 10 references. 30em breaks it up far more than is necessary, especially on wide screens. JDDJS (talk) 00:39, 17 December 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, they're borderline maybe - rendered as 3 columns on my screen. There's little guidance but width based on ref size is mentioned, with 30em used so commonly. I don't see really wide references. I see the template doc has recently changed - there's discussion of the 30em common use at Template_talk:Reflist#Basis 30em standard for multiple column .Widefox; talk 09:30, 17 December 2013 (UTC)

Episode summaries

Per WP:TVPLOT, for season articles, episode summaries should be "approximately 100–200 words for each, with upwards of 350 words for complex storylines". None of the storylines for The Big Bang Theory can be considered complex, so the 350 word limit doesn't apply. Please note that the 100-200 word figure was based on standard 1 hour episodes, so 100-200 word summaries can easily accommodate the 22 minute Big Bang Theory episodes. Please also note that the 100-200 word size is specified by the instructions for {{Episode list}}, which says that summaries should be "a short 100–200 word summary of the episode". All of the episodes identified are longer than 200 words so they are far too long. Your edit,[7] and subsequent reversion,[8] also inexplicably removed the table title. Titles are required by MOS:ACCESS/MOS:DTT, as is other code, such as "plainrowheaders" and "|scope="col"" declarations. Based on previous featured list discussions, excluding the table title from one season article when it is used in the other six would prevent List of The Big Bang Theory episodes from ever being promoted, so it is required for this reason as well. You might care to also check out WP:BRD. Instead of simply reverting as you did, you really should have opened a discussion on the article's talk page, as my edit summary made it clear why your edit was reverted. The issue of episode summary length has been discussed at various venues, so there is really no argument against it. --AussieLegend () 10:30, 15 January 2014 (UTC)

Film plots

Along the lines of the above, WP:FILMPLOT says "Plot summaries for feature films should be between 400 and 700 words. The summary should not exceed the range unless the film's structure is unconventional." In most cases, such as the films that you've removed the {{plot}} tags from recently, 700 words should be the upper limit. --AussieLegend () 10:42, 15 January 2014 (UTC)

In WP:PLOTSUMMARIZE it says that "There is no universal set length for a plot summary, though it should not be excessively long." However, you are right; WP:FILMPLOT and WP:TVPLOT are the ones to go by. However, I do not agree with them because so many articles are tagged with {{plot}} even though they only focus on the important story lines. I want to start a discussion about this. Where should I go to do that? JDDJS (talk) 16:15, 15 January 2014 (UTC)
WP:TVPLOT and WP:FILMPLOT are both parts of the manual of style, while WP:PLOTSUMMARIZE is only part of an essay, but it is correct in saying that there is no universal set length for a plot summary. Instead, WP:TVPLOT specifies the length for television programs while WP:FILMPLOT specifies the length for films. TV episodes range in length from (roughly) 11 minutes to a hour while films are generally 70 minutes to 3 hours or more, so you wouldn't expect there to be one rule for all. Plot lengths have been discussed to death, but if you want to discuss it again you could try Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style/Television, WT:TV, Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style/Film and WT:FILM. Regarding this edit, experience has shown that editors tend to ignore a single plot tag. They really need to be placed in the episode summary. Your edit has again caused the table title to be suppressed from display. --AussieLegend () 17:34, 15 January 2014 (UTC)

A7 of Robert Schwarz - Die Fenster meiner Stadt

Just to let you know, I removed that, since the article does appear to make a credible claim of notability. According to the article (or at least the google translated version) "Schwarz was one of the most important bridges linking the Albanian world to German language culture." He does show up on google searches and appears to be the namesake of the "Robert Schwartz German-Albanian Cultural Association." It's currently at pages needing translation and will probably be prodded soon if no one can come up with reliable sources (online ones seem to be lacking.)

List of Fictional Characters with Asperger Syndrome

NONE OF THE CONTRIBUTIONS I HAVE MADE TO THIS PAGE ARE 'SPECULATIONS' BUT ARE GARNERED FROM ASPERGER ARTICLES BY PROFESSIONAL JOURNALISTS WHICH HAVE BEEN METICULOUSLY SOURCED AND THE CITATIONS HAVE BEEN PROVIDED HEREIN.

THE REVERT TO ORIGINAL WAS MADE HASTILY WITHOUT DUE PROCESS AND WITHOUT PERUSAL OF SOURCE MATERIAL CITED DELETING THE ENTIRE NEW SECTION ON TV DOCTORS WITH ASPERGERS AND ALSO DELETING THE NEW CITATIONS WHICH REPLACED PREVIOUSLY POSTED NOW BROKEN LINKS.

THE ADDITIONS TO THIS PAGE TOOK HOURS OF LABOUR. THE RETRACTION WAS POINTLESS AND DISMISSIVE .

THE HASTY DELETION WAS NOT PRODUCTIVE NOR IN LINE WITH WIKIPEDIA PROTOCOL BUT SEEM TO REPRESENT EFFORTS TO GET POINTS AND CREDIT FOR RETRACTIONS TO OBTAIN MORE IMAGE 'AWARDS.

THIS IS NOT THE PURPOSE OF WIKIPEDIA AND IT IS COUNTERPRODUCTIVE. WIKIPEDIA IS MEANT TO EDUCATE.

I TOOK THE TIME TO ADD TO THIS PAGE AS I HAVE PERSONAL KNOWLEDGE OF THE IMPORTANCE OF AWARENESS AND EDUCATION OF THE PUBLIC CONCERNING ASPERGER SYNDROME HIGH FUNCTIONING AUTISM AND PARTICULARLY TO PROMOTE POSITIVE IMAGE RATHER THAN SUBMIT TO BULLIES WHO ARE SO DISMISSIVE OF ANY GROUP OF"OTHERS" TO PROMOTE THEIR OWN ILLUSION OF POPULARITY.

I HAVE ASPERGER SYNDROME. I AM A SPECIAL EDUCATOR OF ASPIE STUDENTS AND A MOTHER AND GRANDMOTHER OF A/S CHILDREN.

THIS MATERIAL IS MEANT TO INSPIRE AND TO PROMOTE AWARENESS AND NOT TO BE DISCARDED DUE TO AN EDITOR WHO DID NOT EVEN READ THE CITATIONS BUT SUMMARILY REMOVED ALL OF THE HOURS OF POSTED TEXT SUPPORTING ASPERGER AWARENESS WITHOUT A THOUGHT. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Catherine Curran (talkcontribs) 02:59, 22 April 2014 (UTC)

Your opinion, if you don't mind

So, if you wouldn't mind looking at a table I created to show the different movies that the actors that work a lot with Judd Apatow, (Seth Rogan, James Franco, Paul Rudd, Jonah Hill, etc), and thought it might be beneficial for users to look at. I created a draft for it here, I was originally going to do more people that collaborate a lot together but realized that would take me forever so now it's just the table. What do you think?

Absurd Party Deletion

Giving you a heads up that I've responded to the delete request positively. The party was registered at one time but is no longer, and thus, I agree it should be deleted. However, was confused a bit about your comment regarding why it should be deleted, and wished to point out that Canada does have 'joke parties' such as Rhinoceros Party of Canada (1963–93) Nickjbor (talk) 16:23, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

There;s seem to be mistaken belief that I don't believe any joke parties are notable. That is not true. I only nominated the joke parites that a significant amount lacked content and references. However, since most of these nominations are being strongly opposed, I fear that lately I've been too much of a deletionist, which is why I'm sort of on a wikibreak. While I know I will not be able to completely stay away from Wikipedia, I am going to try be less active and to stay way from deletion discussions for at least a week.

AFD: Paul S. Farmer

Hi JDDJS
Although the article for Paul S. Farmer was previously flagged for deletion I re-flagged it for deletion. The notice for deletion was subsequently removed by you. I am new to Wikipedia but even as a newcomer to Wikipedia I can see that this article is a patent violation of Wikipedia's notability guidelines. You will note that from the article's talk and history pages that the author who wrote this article was Paul S. Farmer himself. I disagree with the outcome of the proposed deletion of this article and would like to re-open it for deletion for three reasons: 1) The article documents a non-notable person by virtue of the fact that 2) the article of this person was written by the person himself and 3) that keeping this article sets a viable precedent for future non-notable articles of the same kind.

Please re-consider flagging this article for deletion or co-operating with me to get the article nominated for deletion. If not, can you please explain your reasoning of why you think the article should be kept. Thank you for your understanding. RawPotato (talk) 16:21, 27 May 2014 (UTC)

List of Lost Girl characters

If you're going to insist on adding {{update}} to List of Lost Girl characters,[9] you need to make the nature of the problem clear to readers and editors. Simply adding the tag is insufficient, because it's not clear what needs updating or why. A section needs to be added to the talk page explaining the issues or, you can always fix the problem yourself. --AussieLegend () 15:25, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

Guy of Gisborne

Killing this page seems a bit harsh. Given that both "Guy of Gisbourne" and "Sir Guy of Gisborne (BBC TV drama)" are fictional characters killing one page and redirecting it to the other seems arbitrary. They are both based on the same legend but for all practical purposes they are independent. Mtpaley (talk) 00:09, 25 July 2014 (UTC)
