Template:Gutenberg author[edit]

Hi Jack, You've helped me in the past with some Lua issues. I've completed the re-write of this template into Lua. However the template page is protected thus I can't add the #invoke line to point to the Lua module. Here is the edit request. I've asked other admins for help but they seem afraid to do anything as they don't understand Lua. There is a testcases page shows it works. I've written other templates just like it including {{Books and Writers}}, {{Internet Archive author}}, {{Librivox book}}. Any help appreciated. -- GreenC 00:31, 4 October 2015 (UTC)

Morgan Margolis[edit]

Hi Jack, trying to create a page for Morgan Margolis, son of Mark Margolis & CEO of Knitting Factory Entertainment. The previous page was deleted due to unambiguous copyright infringement so I want to make sure that won't happen again. Djjames88 (talk) 20:23, 27 October 2015 (UTC)

@Djjames88: Read Wikipedia:Copyrights. Basically, you have to actually write the article, not just copy and paste stuff that someone else already wrote. Jackmcbarn (talk) 22:30, 27 October 2015 (UTC)

Ok understood. Can I use short quotes from articles as long as their cited? Djjames88 (talk) 22:40, 27 October 2015 (UTC)

@Djjames88: Yes, but not too many of them. Jackmcbarn (talk) 00:56, 28 October 2015 (UTC)

Ok, I've finished creating the page for Morgan Margolis, this was a bio I had already written for him & includes 2 quotes from the web. Please let me know if I need to fix or change anything before removing and I will do so, I appreciate your help Jack! Djjames88 (talk) 02:09, 29 October 2015 (UTC)

Adding OpenCritic to Video Game Aggregators[edit]

Hey Jack,

I'm trying to edit the following module to add OpenCritic:

OpenCritic is a new video game review aggregator, similar to Rotten Tomatoes or Metacritic. The site recently launched but has already seen significant traffic and positive reception among the gaming community.

We're hoping to get it added so that we can start adding it to the traditional module.

Forum Club of the Palm Beaches[edit]

Hi Jack McBarn,

My apologies...I'm not fully understanding if I should have messaged you here or on my page or somewhere else. But a year ago you edited an article I submitted for review. You had found that I needed permission from the subject of the article (The Forum Club of the Palm Beaches) to use content from their website. Below is your message to me.

@Sunnyzayas: The email you received was a mistake. Blatant copyright violations are deleted immediately. Note that you can't forward the owner's permission to Wikipedia; the copyright owner has to send permission directly to us themselves. I undeleted the page and deleted only the revisions that contained copyright violations, so you can see your references again. Jackmcbarn (talk) 21:19, 12 November 2014 (UTC)

I then asked you how the owner would go about sending permission directly to you, but never received a reply. I just had her email Does that suffice? I'm confused by how it all works and would love to finally be able to get this article up on Wikipedia.

Thanks, Sunnyzayas (talk) 22:36, 3 December 2015 (UTC)User:sunnyzayas 17:35, 03 December 2015 EST

@Sunnyzayas: The correct email address is "". Once the email gets processed, she'll get an email back with an OTRS ticket number. Put that number in your edit summary or the talk page when you add the content. Jackmcbarn (talk) 03:07, 4 December 2015 (UTC)

@Jackmcbarn: Good morning, Jack. Here is the ticket number. [Ticket#: 2015120310022956]. Many thanks!

File:Turkey location map.svg[edit]

Hello, Who can make a Turkey location map for Turkish Insurgency ? Like Syria location map. But this does not seem to map rivers in Turkey. Anyone interested in creating a location map for the Turkish insurgency in Turkey? Personally I do not know how to create such a location map and hence I am asking if any other editors would be happy to create one? Who can add to this rivers map? for example, the Tigris and Euphrates rivers. And rivers in neighboring countries. For example, Iraq, Syria, Iran, Armenia, Russia, Bulgaria and Greece. The background color of the provinces on the map should be a little darker, a little white color .. .. And the borders of the provinces should be slightly thicker than black.

Sppedy deletion of my new created article '63 domains'[edit]

Dear User Jackmcbarn,

I am a new Wikipedia member. A few days ago I created the new article / site '63 domains' on wikipedia. After creating it, I was warned from the wiki bot about the used content because of 'Unambiguous copyright infringement'. But I am 100 % the origin author of the used content (I just took it from my own website for which I wrote it when creating the website).

So in the meanwhile I also sent a 'Wikipedia: Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported and GNU Free Documentation License (unversioned, with no invariant sections, front-cover texts, or back-cover texts)' but I didn't got answer until now.

Thats the text I wrote / copied:

______ 63 DOMAINS are domain names which contains 63 characters (left side of the dot). 63 characters is the maximum amount of characters in a domain name. Those characters can be L (letters) / N (numbers) / MIXED (also dashes) and IDN (other signs and / or symbols). The most aesthetic 63 DOMAINS are those which have a clear system / visible pattern in their structure. They can be seen as abstract art domains - mostly owned by collectors inside the domain scene - but not only. ______

I want to create this page in the best way I can - this text was just the beginning. Waiting for your answer,

best regards User spiritualenergy Spiritualenergy (talk) 23:56, 11 January 2016 (UTC)

@Spiritualenergy: The ticket did get received (#2016010810002022), but it hasn't yet been looked at by an OTRS member. Note, however, that there are other problems with the content as well: the topic doesn't appear notable (i.e., there are no reliable sources that talk about it), and as written, it's rather spammy. See also WP:42 and WP:PROMO. Jackmcbarn (talk) 01:05, 12 January 2016 (UTC)

Deletion of page[edit]

Hi Jackmcbarn,

Can you please explain why my page "Shubham Patel" was deleted twice ?

With Regards Shubham Patel — Preceding unsigned comment added by Spatelskr (talkcontribs) 20:42, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

@Spatelskr: It wasn't deleted. It was moved from article space to your user space, since it's inappropriate as an article. Only the redirect was deleted. Your page still exists at User:Spatelskr. Jackmcbarn (talk) 20:46, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

Hi Jack,

So is it possible to change user name from "Spatelskr" to "Shubham Patel". And what should I need to add photos in this page. Please help


@Spatelskr: You can change your username by using Special:GlobalRenameRequest. You can upload photos at Wikimedia Commons. Jackmcbarn (talk) 20:58, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

CHKN Retrieval[edit]


I had started a new article for a game called CHKN the other day. At the time, I had only a few lines of text as a simple, temporary placeholder that I got from their site. I then had to go to the movies, and left only that text. I did read more through the guidelines, and understood exactly why it was deleted. However, I would like to rewrite it, as I do have sources, and I can understand how the original sounds promotional. I do apologize.

Israel location maps[edit]

Did you ever get around to refactoring them? I've started updating populations on the articles, and see the full country map is still being used instead of the zoomed-in versions (you were planning to redraw all the maps like this following the Sepsis II incident.
