Quarto Group edit[edit]

Planning to edit the Quarto group page's history and imprints, I have gathered references, can I show you the edit? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Abmd942 (talkcontribs) 13:10, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

@Abmd942: Yes, please go ahead. If it is just a matter of one or two sentences, you can post it at Talk:Quarto Group, if you like, and let me know you have done so. However, I find it is not helpful to put more substantial edits or significant rewrites of articles in talk pages, and so if you want to post a suggestion for more than a fairly small change I suggest creating a page User:Abmd942/Quarto Group and posting your proposed new version there.
If you don't mind, can you tell me whether you are the editor who previously edited under the user name LucyQuarto, and if not what your connection to her is? The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 13:34, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
@JamesBWatson: Yes Lucy Quarto is me, I'm very new to all this and obviously didn't read the guidelines the first time, I think I have managed to flag up my COI on my user page. Sorry for my previous rubbish wikapediaing. I will post my proposed edits on Abmd942/Quarto Group and it would be great if you could do me the courtesy of checking its appropriateness. Thank-you, Lucy. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Abmd942 (talkcontribs) 13:46, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
@JamesBWatson: I was also wondering about the information I posted two days ago, it was flagged as not being in line with wiki regulations due to a marketing tonality, I didn't mean for that at all, but I would still like to post the information (without any marketing tonality) but I found it hard to understand where it was. I posted it under the titles "Quarto Publishing Group UK" "Quarto Publishing Group USA" e.t.c I shall post the the content for those titles on the User:Abmd942/Quarto Group. It would be great if you could tell me where I'm going wrong :).
@Abmd942: I have had a quick look at the draft you have written, but I don't have time now to check it thoroughly enough to give you useful feedback. I will try to look at it as soon as I can. However, I suffer from attention deficit disorder, and things that I genuinely intend to come back to very often get lost, as my mind uncontrollably jumps off onto other things. If I haven't got back to you on this within a a couple of days please remind me: I will regard it as help, not harassment. The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 15:59, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
@JamesBWatson: Aww Thanks so much! I really appreciate your help! :) Abmd942 (talk) 16:25, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
@JamesBWatson: Hi just a little reminder! Lucy :) Abmd942 (talk) 22:14, 6 February 2016 (UTC)
@JamesBWatson: So what do you make of it? Abmd942 (talk) 09:10, 9 February 2016 (UTC)
I have posted a fairly long reply on your talk page. The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 10:27, 10 February 2016 (UTC)

COI situation[edit]

Can you please take a look at User talk:Anantamandal. I just ran across this editor while doing a Welcome blitz and have left him a note about self-promotion and single purpose editing. You did the same back in 2013 but it seems he has continued his self-promotion. As time goes on, I am more than happy to assist a fellow artist to comply with our rules. I think this will give me a guide on what needs to be done. Not quite sure how to proceed. Any advice is appreciated. Buster Seven Talk 15:51, 6 February 2016 (UTC)

I don't think he gets it. I'm not even sure he is reading the warnings I have placed at his talk, the article talk and even his User page. Currently we are edit-warring but I'm not even sure he knows it. I have placed a 3RR banner on his talk page but I am reluctant to report him. He has put together a nice page. its just that its not NPOV. And the lists need to be inverted. Buster Seven Talk 22:22, 6 February 2016 (UTC)
I have done some editing at Ananta Mandal (inverting the lists). The references are a mess. many come from His own Web page. Buster Seven Talk 03:20, 7 February 2016 (UTC)
Overnight he did 9 edits, fixing a ref and adding/changing some images. I used "rollbacker" to undo all 9 since, at this point, his ignoring of his COI status amounts to vandalism. Buster Seven Talk 13:05, 7 February 2016 (UTC)
@Buster7: First of all, sorry it's taken me a couple of days to get round to responding to this. I've had rather a lot of other things to deal with. However, I have now posted a message at User talk:Anantamandal, stating that he is likely to be blocked without further notice if the problematic editing continues. If you see any more of the same from him, please contact me again, and if I agree that it is a continuation of the problems he has been warned about then I will block him.

Currency Chest[edit]

This is regard your deletion of page "Currency Chest In India". I am the author of the same in Quora.com and I want to donate this topic to wikepedia. Please help — Preceding unsigned comment added by Viswatkmce (talkcontribs) 09:21, 6 February 2016 (UTC) I have donated my article in Quora to wikepedia by using the option 'copy left' in my Quora page. You may please revive my wikepedia page. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Viswatkmce (talkcontribs) 09:30, 6 February 2016 (UTC)

RevDel request[edit]

Hi JamesBWatson, since you're listed in CAT:REVDEL I thought I might ask if you could remove this diff: [1]. Cheers, --bonadea contributions talk 15:28, 9 February 2016 (UTC)

@Bonadea: Yes check.svg Done. Do you know, I had completely forgotten the existence of that category, let alone the fact that I had added myself to it back in July 2013. Well, that explains why from time to time I get Revdel requests on this page. The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 15:36, 9 February 2016 (UTC)
Yes, I imagine that would be why :-) Thanks! --bonadea contributions talk 15:56, 9 February 2016 (UTC)

Deletion request[edit]

Hi JamesBWatson you have are planning the article pro evolution soccer 2017 to delete but the information provided by the this page are real and you can find it in the different websites like fifplay,winningelevenblog etc. Even gameplay trailers are released. So I think this article should not be deleted instead it should be preserved for the information of upcoming video game pes 2017. If you are against my request than write what should be done to prevent this article from being deleted. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Beebek62 (talkcontribs) 12:41, 10 February 2016‎ (UTC)

You can state the reasons why you think the article shouldn't be deleted at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Pro Evolution Soccer 2017. However, the reason for proposing deletion is lack of evidence of notability, not because of any suggestion that the information is not "real".

Notability and reference issue[edit]

Hello James, I don't understand why the references don't satisfy notability.

Further more I'm not related and just a fellow who is a resident of India where the said person is notable. I found the page of nalco and found the key person doesn't have a page of his own and wanted to contribute.

Please elaborate.

Editninja16 (talk) 13:39, 10 February 2016 (UTC) Editninja16 (talk) 13:39, 10 February 2016 (UTC)

Notability is not shown by mere news announcements of appointments, or of speeches given by the subject, or the information that when a Prime Minister was making a visit, the person in question greeted him and gave him a book. We need sources which give more substantial coverage to the subject whose notability is to be demonstrated. The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 13:46, 10 February 2016 (UTC)

Hello James,

Could you please tell what substantial coverage means when I can see the main stream media covering most of his events live?

Along with this Reuters, Hindu, the telegraph, business standard seem to be covering any developments regarding aluminum industry with this person.

Please explain.

Editninja16 (talk) 13:52, 10 February 2016 (UTC)

There are various guidelines which give information about what is required to establish notability. The principal one is Wikipedia:Notability, and that has links to other guidelines, of which Wikipedia:Notability (people) is the one most likely to be relevant in this case. The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 13:58, 10 February 2016 (UTC)

I had gone through this article when the article was first tagged with notability issue. I find the basics to be single independent sources or multiple independent sources covering the person.

Well in this case dozens of independent sources cover. Along with this the cited references about appointment are for the designations and not for notability.

Would you want me to add more sources? Please guide.

Editninja16 (talk) 14:42, 10 February 2016 (UTC) Editninja16 (talk) 14:42, 10 February 2016 (UTC)

Generally speaking, consensus is that a source does not do much to establish notability unless it is substantially about the subject (not about something else, but mentioning the subject), and also about substantial aspects of the subject (not, for example, just about one particular incident, such as an announcement that a person has been appointed to a job, or that he once met the prime minister). The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 17:59, 10 February 2016 (UTC)


Hello again,

I'm not sure why you stress on meeting the prime minister once (which isn't once by any chance). The person is the chairman of a Navratna status PSU, the largest integrated aluminum complex. He meets just more than prime ministers alone. I'm not sure how he's not notable as you state.

Nevertheless I'm going to add more sources and not appointments or ministers and get back to you on this issue.

Is this fair enough?

Editninja16 (talk) 19:10, 10 February 2016 (UTC)

@Editninja16:
  1. I did not stress "once": I just indicated that a news report that was cited merely told us of one occasion when he met a prime minister, and that is not evidence of satisfying Wikipedia's notability guidelines. Whether he has in fact met the prime minister on occasions other than the one in that report is irrelevant, as that is not what the news report was about.
  2. Wikipedia's notability guidelines do not accept as evidence of notability meeting notable people, nor being chairman of a large company. If you have read the guidelines and not grasped that, then it is difficult to know how I can make it any clearer; if you haven't read them then I suggest doing so. Also, please note that what I am referring to is the standards of notability which are generally accepted among Wikipedia editors in discussions, not my own views as to what standards should be accepted.

Edit to the article Annihilation[edit]

well, maybe because nihil = nothing and "nothing" is not a trivial concept here but central to the entire lemma. -- Kku 22:36, 10 February 2016 (UTC)

@Kku: Yes, I am perfectly well aware of the connection between the concept "nothing" and the concept "annihilation", and also of the etymology of the word "annihilation". However, that was not the question: the question was about what in the Wikipedia article Nothing would help anyone to understand the Wikipedia article Annihilation. The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 09:16, 11 February 2016 (UTC)
Will it confuse the reader? Does the target article contain wrong information? Is the target lemma off-topic? Is the link detrimental to the overall comprehensibility? Is the article "overlinked"? Is there an objective measure for overlinking? Is there a law against hyperlinks from one lemma to a parent lemma with a broader scope? I think if you can answer more than 50% percent of these questions in the affirmative, then you might have a point. -- Kku 10:49, 11 February 2016 (UTC)
I don't agree. Pointless links are pointless. The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 10:52, 11 February 2016 (UTC)

Orang Eire Delete[edit]

Can you provide some feedback as to why the Orang Eire page was deleted. Why would a page for an not-for-profit sports team can be considered advertising or promotion. —  Preceding unsigned comment added by BrianMc15 (talkcontribs) 05:00, 12 February 2016

@BrianMc15: The reason why a page would "be considered advertising or promotion" is that it appears to be written to advertise or promote its subject: whether that subject seeks to make a profit or not is irrelevant. Thus, an article which consists almost entirely of a list of successes and achievements of a club, together with language designed to give a favourable impression of the club, rather than neutral reporting, such as telling us that it "is made up of talented athletes", is likely to be seen as attempting to promote the club. Likewise, an article telling us that the club "has gone from strength to strength", that their "hard work paid off", that tournaments held by the club were "overwhelming successes" and so on is not by any stretch of the imagination neutral reporting: it is promotional language, more suited to the club's own web site or PR material than to an encyclopaedia which seeks to give coverage from a neutral point of view.
