Why do you keep getting rid of the class section I made Mscoopo Mscoopo (talk) 22:27, 15 December 2014 (UTC)

@User:Mscoopo, because Wikipedia is not a game guide. We do not list every bit of trivial, unimportant information about video games, or any other subject for that matter. Please remove it--Jac16888 Talk 22:37, 15 December 2014 (UTC)

Clermont Gaels Deletion Feb 7[edit]

Hey, you just deleted my page Clermont Gaels. I'm aware it was in French but I am actually translating the French page into English and I just copied the source code from the French page so that I would have the exact same layout. I was in the process of translating all of the French when you deleted it.

Deletion of Open_Broadcasting_Software[edit]

Hi. I wanted to link the Open Broadcasting Software item on OBS to an article on that application, but you've deleted it on account of notability criteria (or rather, moved it to the author's userpage, which I presumably shouldn't link to). Would you consider restoring this article? I know nothing about streaming software, but even I've heard of OBS - I would describe it as "well-known software" and was actually quite surprised it didn't have a page. Note that its website is the top hit on Google for the acronym "OBS", but is now absent from the OBS disambiguation page for lack of an article to link to. Meanwhile, many other items on that page (including another, more obscure, application) have their own articles. This is likely to confuse users searching for "OBS" after encountering the term online. Here is a Google search on "Open Broadcaster Software" for reference. As a final observation, while searching Wikipedia, I found an article for an application called "OpenBroadcaster". If you attempt to search the web for this program, all you'll find is page after page of results for OBS! You actually need to filter out "Open Broadcaster Software" to even find results for that application. Troyp (talk) 11:59, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

User:Voxletum/Open Broadcaster Software was userfied as a result of an AFD, and has not been changed/improved since then so I don't see any reason to move it back, as there are no reliable sources or references to demonstrate notability at this time. I would advise you to work on it in it's current location, or move it to your own userspace, and then submit it to the WP:AFC system--Jac16888 Talk 19:19, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
I'm not sure I understand: was it removed due to notability as stated, or due to the article quality? If the former, why would the article need to be improved to be restored?
Unless Wikipedia's notability criteria are completely broken, it should be easy to verify the notability of something like OBS. For instance:
• Google gives 1,770,000 hits for the name in quotes
• The OBS forum has 30,626 registered members, with 252 users currently online when I just checked (I think I saw the maximum was close to a thousand).
• I can't get download numbers from either github or the official OBS download from AWS, but the Sourceforge repo (a secondary mirror at the bottom of the first page of search results) shows 2,583 downloads per week. I'm guessing the total weekly downloads are in the five figures.
I don't think there can any doubt about notability. The article quality is another matter: it didn't look the best (although not the worst either), but that doesn't seem to be the reason it was removed.
I wouldn't be the best person to create a new OBS article. I don't know anything about video capture and streaming software (or particularly care, for that matter). Anyway, it probably doesn't matter. People can find information on it elsewhere. The main problem was that a disambiguation page for OBS existed, but didn't include the most common meaning, which could actively confuse users - and the item I added was removed for lacking a link. However, it now looks like I'll be able to restore the item by linking to another article, so I guess it doesn't matter. In the event that you don't restore it, I'll leave it to OBS users to create/rehabilitate an article for it if they want to. Troyp (talk) 08:38, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
It was removed due to notability, it is both the notability and the quality that are why I won't restore it. Notability is more than googlehits and forum members, these are irrelevant. Notability needs to be demonstrated through the presence of multiple reliable 3rd party references--Jac16888 Talk 12:01, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

Deletion of John Vergara page[edit]

Dear Jac16888,

I hope you're doing well. Yesterday I created a page for a leading young luthier under the name "John Vergara" that you deleted today. There was a note that the content was copied from his official website so today he sent an email for Permissions that allow using the content in his bio. This is the Ticket#2015051510021082. Usually when I create pages I receive a note on how to enhance my article before being deleted. Kindly, instruct me on how to avoid deletion and what the issue with the page was.

Re: Your post on Wikipedia:Village_pump_(policy)#English_policy:_So_blindly_obvious.2C_but... [edit]


I saw your post, and didn't want to respond on the village pump, so I'll respond to you here. As far as blanking a page, it depends, in fact, policy permits pages to be blanked under certain conditions (attack pages, BLP, courtesy blanking ). As far as copy and paste, I've been told it breaks attribution, my understand of what that means is that it doesn't identify the author that wrote the copy and pasted item. However, I don't see copy-and-paste as a bad thing, for example, I have four articles on Wikipedia, I worked on them in sandboxes set up on my own page. Once they were ready, I simply copy-and-pasted them into main space, the article was preserved exactly as I'd written it, no changes, nothing like that, so not only do I not see copy-and-paste as bad thing, I've actually done this on my own articles. I see it as a minor issue. I'm not trying to be difficult, dickish or pointy, I literally don't see it as a big issue. However, because you've mentioned it, I will refrain from copying-and-pasting anything, even if I wrote it myself . KoshVorlon Rassekali ternii i mlechnye puti 15:18, 22 May 2015 (UTC)

The fact is that just blanking a page doesn't achieve anything, even with attack pages and copyvios you leave a tag, and in both of those cases the blanking is largely a legal and protection thing. As for copy and pasting, same thing: attribution is also legal issue, it wouldn't matter if there was only one editor (such as with your sandbox pages) and that editor was doing the copying, but anymore and it becomes a problem, which is why we have the move function, to maintain a page history--Jac16888 Talk 18:13, 22 May 2015 (UTC)

Confusion about the removal of the Sean William McLoughlin page.[edit]

I was attempting to look into Sean (better known as Jacksepticeye) and saw that you had remove the page. Reason being, there was no evidence of that being a person of importance. Yet when it listed examples of things, it mentioned web as a thing for them to be important on. Sean, known as Jacksepticeye is a major youtuber. Of which Wikipedia has several pages for, examples being and . He is certainly one of importance, being one of the fastest growing channels. He currently has 5,290,000 + subscribers And as of now 1,961,443,013 video views, and 1,726 videos posted. As for "proof" here is his channel, it states all the stats I mentioned under the about section. I'd say he qualifies as a person of importance, and if possible the page on him should really be re-added. (talk) 02:42, 1 July 2015 (UTC)Husky

Please read notability, and understand that having lots of followers does not make a person notable. Multiple reliable 3rd party references are required--Jac16888 Talk 18:27, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

the "Strulovitz" entry that you deleted[edit]

Dear Sir / Madam,

I would like to explain with a few examples please, why I think the "Strulovitz" entry is worthy of mentioning in Wikipedia:

(1) It's 100% FREE and open and volunteer based.

(2) It tackles IMPORTANT issues:

(3) It's treating the subject in a UNIQUE way:

  • the closest thing to Ramanujan 2 is either Chegg (which is closed and commercial) or Khan's Academy (which does not treat advanced subjects, and certainly not this thorough). We solve EVERY exercise in the book! Example:

  • there are no websites that I were able to find. This is not "let's all live in the forest" website. examples:

it's an organization with the same sole purpose as your organization - contributing to and expanding humanity's knowledge.

Please please re-consider your decision to delete...

Thank you so so much,

At WP:PNT you specified that it was an A2 of the Hungarian Wikipedia. But the article there, hu:Bakó Árpád, is in Hungarian. The article that was posted here was in Romanian.

Hi there! I just started recently as a new page patroller, and when I came across 야성의_동맹, I originally proposed it for speedy deletion.

Please withdraw or remove the article from deletion![edit]

Again raised to remove the article Earlier in 2014, thanks to Your help, the article was taken out of removal. And here it is again. Please pay attention to the discussion What, in my opinion, involves removal? Here is the arguments :

1. The initiator of removal Fedor Babkin is the assistant Akim Dubrov. That is, there is a tandem Fedor Babkin-Akim Dubrov. Akim Dubrov and Ramil Garifullin is a long – standing opponents and have antagonism. A significant portion of the papers and books of Professor, candidate of psychological Sciences of Ramil Garifullin dedicated to drug prevention. Moreover, Ramil Garifullin in the media acutely raised the issue about the dangers of certain articles in Wikipedia dedicated to drugs and psihodelii. On the other hand, Akim Dubrov is the author and translator of books in Russia dedicated to drug substances and an author of articles on psihodelii in Wikipedia. It is likely that the main antagonism between Akim Dubrov and Ramil Garifullin is now in the risk of publications on drugs and psihodelii in Wikipedia. 2. Earlier this conflict Akim Dubrov - Ramil Garifullin has been associated with the publication of an article about Garifullina negative article about Snowden. Article about Garifullin on Wikipedia was removed in 2013 on the day of publication in the Russian newspaper article about Snowden. 3. Ramil Garifullina good level of scientific citation Ramil Garifullin told me that if would be continued against him as slander in the discussion of Wikipedia, he is libel to sue. 4. Moreover, this identity in the English Wikipedia is seen as a well-known Russian journalist and writer, not as a scientist. Although the number of scientific articles and monographs enough (watch out links Therefore it is incorrect to use the same discussion for deletion on the Russian Wikipedia. 5. The Internet is the namesake and namesake, Ramil Garifullina, who is really engaged in pseudoscience and is in jail. It's a different person. Not to be confused! So it looks like slander. 6. Based on this English article was formed a modified Russian text to Russian Wikipedia, which upheld the administrator --be-nt-all Here is his assessment: the Draft looked, the chances of successful recovery are good, although above the neutral still need to be work --the be-nt-all 07:40, November 25, 2015 (UTC). This text was revised and edited based discussions-2013. Here is the translation: 7. But Akim Dubrow was removed for some reason Irek Minnullin 22:27, 24 November 2015 (UTC) . 8. be-nt-all gave me an assignment to work on the draft is not directly on RS, but on the appropriate subpage: User:Irek Minnullin/Garifullin Ramil, Rosiewicz --be-nt-all16:43, 26 December 2015 (UTC) 9. Ask the participants to carefully examine all links and articles Garifullina and not to succumb to provocations tandem Fedor Babkin-Akim Dubrov. Article revised in the light of ancient comments-2013. The article is about a famous essayist and writer. The merit of Ramil Garifullina as a scientist is sufficient. 10. Please withdraw or remove the article from deletion! 11. And think, what are the motives of the authors of the Russian Wikipedia to put the question of removal of articles from the English Wikipedia.

La Alarma De La Mañana[edit]

Good afternoon! First allow me to wish you a joyful, blessed and successful 2016.

I've recently joined WIKIPEDIA with the intentions of publishing information about a radio show, hosted in my country (Dominican Republic), and was very excited with the idea of being able to stamp the story of that show in this site, just so anyone interested could find at the first source people go to get reliable information, which is this site.

Of course I, myself, am one of the many millions of Internet users that rely on this site to gather facts and notes, so being able to post here was a very exciting experience of which I was looking forward to go through.

Saturday my post for "Alarma De La Mañana" was published so the first thing I did was to share the link to the producers and hosts of the said show. They did, as well, shared that information on their personal social media accounts (Twitter, Facebook and Instagram) as on the show's official account too. Instantly the regular audience of the show started clicking the link, sharing it and replying to it.

Not only that but, being today the first day of the show [after the publication] the announcement was also made during the show. Again, people started searching for the link and some also made phone calls to the radio station, stating -with joy- that they were proud that "our show was on WIKIPEDIA"...

Until one of the fans, via Twitter, shared the notice posted on the page saying that "No credible indication of importance (individuals, animals, organizations, web content, events)" were the reason why the post was taken down. As soon as that information was noticed by the hosts of the show they did the announcement that "we're so insignificant to WIKIPEDIA that they do not believe we're worth being portrayed in their website".

Given the fact that they're far more useless information (not only on WIKIPEDIA, but in the whole Internet) I can't help but to come and, humbly ask you what was the criteria in which you've sustained the reason to take down the post.

I don't mean to disrespect nor to tell you how to do your job, but given the fact that the information was valid, was true, was properly redacted, all facts were real, there were no imaging infringement and the show has being on the air for nearly four years now I find it hard to understand your reasons.

Also, if there's any way that the audience (that now are very displeased with this whole issue) can make a request to have a "Alarma De La Mañana" page posted in WIKIPEDIA, we would appreciate it if you let us know.

Please, do not hesitate to give me any inputs you might think would be helpful for us to bring back the page. I hope you find it in yourself to reconsider putting it back in this site.

Should you request any further information regarding this matter feel free to contact me as often as you consider possible. Yours truly, Karina Navarro-Baez/ Tirana69 KNB T/69— Preceding unsigned comment added by Tirana69 (talkcontribs) 23:49, 11 January 2016

There were multiple issues with the article as it was created. The first and key to it's deletion was it's notability, this was not a judgement of the subject but rather the determining factor for all articles on Wikipedia, they must demonstrate WP:NOTABILITY as the linked page describes, and they must do so through the use of reliable 3rd party references, of which there were none. Secondly the article as clearly written from the point of view of a fan, it was overly promotional and not neutral. Finally, it was not written in English, which is a problem since this is the English language Wikipedia--Jac16888 Talk 00:07, 12 January 2016 (UTC)

Nice comment[edit]

very nice comment for Alfa Romeo Avio, your answer doesnt help anybody, so pls avoid ansvering if you dont have anything to say. The page is tagged because its ongoing project, and added for Pages_needing_translation_into_English for reason the template asked for it, and that template is for rough translations, so please dont add any "clever" asnwers in future, thanks. I can ask help if I want, Wikipedia is still "group work" if you know. Your comment makes that rough translation template useless, so pls avoid commenting those in the future, or if you want ask they remove that template. -->Typ932 T·C 12:11, 13 January 2016 (UTC)

The rough translation template is intended to point out that somebody has created a bad article that needs dealing with, its not for somebody to intentionally create a bad article and then leave it for somebody else to fix, PNT is not your personal clean-up crew.

Getting Jibanananda Das translated[edit]

I agree with your edit summary for this edit to Jibanananda Das, but am troubled by the edit itself. The {{Not English-inline}} template that you removed was being used as directed in its documentation and per WP:NONENG.

Do you agree that it is undesirable to have a hunk of un-translated Bengali in the middle of the article? I can't recall ever seeing such a thing in a featured article about a non-English-writing poet. A translation is always given, and the original language is included only if the translation was by a Wikipedian. A published translation, for example by Joe Winter, would be preferable to one by a Wikipedian. But the text has been sitting untranslated for three years. The purpose of the tag is to galvanize improvement by alerting editors that a change is needed. If not with this tag, how do you propose to accelerate that improvement? --Worldbruce (talk) 01:51, 31 January 2016 (UTC)

The purpose of the tag is to say to WP:PNT, "translate this", this doesn't want to happen in this case, as for us to do that would be WP:OR, since it would be an interpretation and it would be easy to give multiple different ones, that aren't the original intention. If a sourced translation can't be found, then just remove the poem--Jac16888 Talk 13:16, 31 January 2016 (UTC)

I want to translate the english version to the chinese version for my library school project. Why did you delete that — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lukiaikea (talkcontribs) 23:02, 8 February 2016 (UTC)

Because it was blatant promotion, and also this is the English language Wikipedia, if you want to edit in Chinese you need to go the Chinese language Wikipedia--Jac16888 Talk 23:37, 8 February 2016 (UTC)
