Deleted Draft Page: JMI GROUP[edit]

Mr. Jim, I know i tried several times recreating the page. I couldn't understanding and that's why I am trying again and again changing the content. Please let me create again and please guide if possible with the suspicious word.Rizon russel (talk) 06:36, 18 March 2017 (UTC)

Rizon russel, I've prevented the article being recreated in article or draft space because you kept posting the same promotional text, at least four times, despite warnings. Please read very carefully what I have written on your talk page. If you want to try again, post here for now. Please note that that this is likely to be you last chance to follow our rules, further promotion or failure to comply with the COI request will lead to a block Jimfbleak - talk to me? 06:47, 18 March 2017 (UTC)

Review request[edit]

Hi Jim!

  1. Where is your Talk archive? I had to "view history" to find my previous message to ya.
  2. More importantly, can you review my draft for the previously-deleted page Roots N Blues N BBQ Festival (currently this personal user page) and tell me if I'm on the right track? I feel like I am, except that it might still be failing notability, because I can find no good sources talking about it outside of the state of Missouri. Heck, not even Kansas City. If you think it's alright, do you also suppose that I could go ahead and submit the draft and continue to work on it "live"? I've certainly seen much shorter articles out there!

Feel free to reply on my talk page. Thanks again, RM2KX (talk) 17:56, 19 March 2017 (UTC)

Actually, I would not submit the draft until I have the event logo in the infobox and fill in the two missing citations. RM2KX (talk) 18:05, 19 March 2017 (UTC)

Page / Account Deletion[edit]

Hi Jim,

We had a page deleted for "(G11: Unambiguous advertising or promotion: company spam)" but we listed close to 20 sources that were more informational than promotional. We followed a similar template that another reputable competitor had and we have even provided more information than them. We're wondering why it was deleted and if there's anything we can do to improve the article.

There are many notable sources regarding the page so any more information would be great. The page, Peach-and-lily was deleted 17:10, 20 March 2017.

Blocked as probable sock puppet of User:Peachandlily Jimfbleak - talk to me? 19:31, 20 March 2017 (UTC)


Before I make a fool of myself, any idea what's going on here? I ask because you blocked Kevin McLean at K2 Publicity, who recently had their name changed from simply K2publicity. I thought it may have been a requested name change, but it looks a heckuva lot like a user unilaterally renaming accounts, and...I didn't even know that was possible without being a global renamer. So yeah, I'm confused. TimothyJosephWood 19:46, 20 March 2017 (UTC)

Timothyjosephwood, Me too, that user doesn't even appear to be an admin. I blocked because MCLean is clearly a paid editor operating on behalf of the publicity agency and its client, but I avoided blocking for spamusername because of the apparent change of name, which now appears to not be real. I'll change the block to an indef, not sure what to do about Savh. Jimfbleak - talk to me? 07:02, 21 March 2017 (UTC)
You liked that... you're gonna love this... — O Fortuna! Imperatrix mundi. 07:37, 21 March 2017 (UTC)
I'm so confused. This...isn't supposed to be possible right? Am I missing something obvious? TimothyJosephWood 09:55, 21 March 2017 (UTC)
@TJW: Yes, I know what you mean! I noticed it ages ago but forgot to ask around. The only thing I considered: was whether there was a difference in simply moving pages (which is what they're doing) on one wiki, and globally renaming them across the Foundation-board...? But that's as far as my thinking takes me- not very far at all I'm afraid! — O Fortuna! Imperatrix mundi. 10:03, 21 March 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, I really have no understanding whatsoever what the technical difference is between moving the whole lot of a user's userspace pages and renaming an account, but it's definitely not something that should be open to all autoconfirmed accounts, and it's definitely not something that users should be doing with COI accounts without even being asked. Having said that, I'm not entirely sure where the appropriate forum to bring this up would even be. WP:AN or WP:VP maybe? Surely this isn't something that goes to the Meta level...right? TimothyJosephWood 11:44, 21 March 2017 (UTC)
Anybody know who a good technical guru to ping to this conversation would be? Maybe User:MusikAnimal? TimothyJosephWood 11:50, 21 March 2017 (UTC)
I'm no technical guru, but Céréales Killer (talk · contribs) is a global-renamer, so it makes sense they can rename users here as well. And Savh (talk · contribs) is a steward. Regards SoWhy 11:52, 21 March 2017 (UTC)
D'oh. I looked at 'User group', which, it appears, is less than useful. Think that clears that up. Although taking Stewards to ANI is probably worth doing for the fun of it  :) — O Fortuna! Imperatrix mundi. 11:55, 21 March 2017 (UTC)
Hello! When an user asks a renaming of his account, the mediawiki software renames the account and moves at the same time all the pages and subpages of this account from the old name to the new name without other operation from us. We only allow or deny the renaming. The unique possibility is let or not a redirect from the old pages to the new pages. I am not a number (talk) 12:28, 21 March 2017 (UTC)
Okay. I did the same thing FIM did. In my defense, it did seem more likely from the start that I had missed something obvious rather than stumbled on some critical problem. Thanks everyone for clearing that up, and with that I'll relieve Jim of the nuisance of having a million comments on his talk page. TimothyJosephWood 13:08, 21 March 2017 (UTC)
I am indeed a steward, and among other things perform global renames. The message you left on the user's talk page includes the following sentences:

"I noticed that your username, "K2publicity", may not comply with our username policy. Please note that you may not use a username that represents the name of a company, group, organization, product, or website. Examples of usernames that are not allowed include "XYZ Company", "", and "Foobar Museum of Art". However, you are invited to use a username that contains such a name if it identifies you personally, such as "Jack Smith at XYZ Company", "Mark at WidgetsUSA", or "FoobarFan87"."

I believe the user intended to comply with the policies when he requested the rename. I am not really sure why my action is being questioned when the name complies with the suggestion on his talk page and he hadn't been blocked yet for advertising when I renamed him. I personally would not have blocked indefinitely if there was some sort of perspective to improvement (paid contributions, when done in line with the terms of use & other policies, are also contributions). Additionally, you may delete my userpage to allow my global userpage to appear & thereby increase clarity on my steward actions. Savh tell me 23:55, 21 March 2017 (UTC)
Fyi, there is a log of the accounts I rename and there is a request from this user linked in the rename log reason. The request is accessible to global renamers, stewards and WMF staff only, and can be found here. User renames could, in the past be performed by bureaucrats, but they now can only be performed by global renamers and stewards. The page move log already makes it apparent a rename has been performed because of the "Automatically moved page while renaming the user..." and while that could be falsified, the logs can't. Next time, however, if you have any questions about the actions of someone, I'd really suggest asking the user first before considering whether to bring it up to the admin noticeboard - in some cases people do know what they're doing. Savh tell me 00:10, 22 March 2017 (UTC)
Savh: Not pinging you originally was not an assumption of bad faith, it was an assumption that I had personally missed something, which it seems I did. I don't actually know if you can leave an edit summary with your rename, but since at least three of us were fooled, if you can, it might be helpful to do so, since neither your permissions nor the request are readily available through the normal means for most of us who mostly operate on only one or very few projects. I realize that may seem silly to someone who works on many projects, but I hope it will be understandable. TimothyJosephWood 00:20, 22 March 2017 (UTC)
In your 11:44 message, you ask "Having said that, I'm not entirely sure where the appropriate forum to bring this up would even be. WP:AN or WP:VP maybe?". I would suggest my own talk page as a first venue.
Renames are provided with a summary, as can be seen in Special:Log/renameuser. This reason is not included in the page move log, but a reference is automatically made that it concerns a rename (allowing anyone to check the rename log) in the page move log action summary: Savh moved page User talk:K2publicity to User talk:Kevin McLean at K2 Publicity: Automatically moved page while renaming the user "K2publicity" to "[[Special:CentralAuth/Kevin McLean at K2 Publicity|Kevin McL...). Savh tell me 00:30, 22 March 2017 (UTC)
And again, this fooled three of us, including an admin. TimothyJosephWood 00:48, 22 March 2017 (UTC)
Savh, thanks for clarifying, I think we were all genuinely baffled; I've been an admin for many years, and I didn't work it out. My understanding of the policy is that "User:Joe at Company X" is permitted to allow Joe to edit as an individual in a non-COI way without bearing the sins of "User:Company X". In this case, the user was clearing on behalf of his employer, which is not permitted, so I'm not minded to change the block, although I'm happy to discuss if you think I got it wrong. If he asks for an unblock, that will come with no-COI conditions, which would solve the problem, but isn't likely to be acceptable since the only reason for the involvement of a publicity company is to, well, publicise its clients Jimfbleak - talk to me? 07:12, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

Huh, the IOC has extinct birds (I don't think they have all of them, though), but this doesn't appear on the IOC list, the common name or the binomial. RileyBugzYell at me | Edits 20:51, 20 March 2017 (UTC)
It is a current article, and a bird listed on the Birds of New Zealand PDF, which we use as a reference. It is an extinct bird, so the IOC probably hasn't gotten around to listing the bird yet. We should still use our naming convention if we keep the article....Pvmoutside (talk) 01:31, 21 March 2017 (UTC)

User talk:Atuobikissi[edit]

When you have a moment, if you could please block this user as they spam-campaigned again today despite their last warning. Looking in at another article, I see the user, Apkril has clear policy violations in COI spamming their companies too. Thanks, SwisterTwister talk 21:32, 21 March 2017 (UTC)

SwisterTwister, I've blocked Atuobikissi as requested. Apkrill is less straightforward. He's only been warned once, by you, and has not edited since. He's never been asked to declare any conflict of interest. I looked at the three most recent articles; one had a prod, but the other two had only maintenance tags, although I've now nominated one for SD. I don't think I can doing anything on the basis of one warning that hasn't yet been violated Jimfbleak - talk to me? 06:56, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

National Institute of Technology, Kurukshetra[edit]

Hi Jimfbleak, I'm not familiar with this university, but just noticed your wp:g11. My first reaction was to contest, as this belonged in a Talk or AfD for the minimum (doesn't look like irreparable "exclusively promotional"). Then I noticed it was you, so decided to ask first. Thanks. -- IsaacSt (talk) 08:09, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

Yes. It does answer my question. Keep up the good work! Let's keep the bad guys out, but let's keep any good material in... -- IsaacSt (talk) 17:07, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

National Institute of Technology, Kurukshetra[edit]

Just a quick heads up, I declined your G11 nomination for this, as I felt the article was salvageable. I have trimmed out large quantities of what is, to be frank, unsourced spam and it now looks in a bit more manageable shape. The protection should help too. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 11:23, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

Ritchie333, thanks. I have some doubts about the creator of this article and I may have got carried away. IsaacSt, I think this answers your question (: Jimfbleak - talk to me? 14:01, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for the reply- thing is- there is no draft- only the sandbox- and surely A10 not apply to userspace? — O Fortuna! Imperatrix mundi. 14:21, 22 March 2017 (UTC)
O Fortuna!, I should have been clearer, for all practical purposes, sandboxes are treated as drafts. I take your point about A10, although I'd guess that this situation simply wasn't envisaged. I could deleted as copyright, but the editor could simply repost with attribution, so I'm inclined to A10 anyway, unless you object. It looks as if I've inadvertently given myself a period of grace too (: You could, of course, nominate the main article as SD for spam, which, if successful, would also solve the problem, but you may well be wary now about doing so Jimfbleak - talk to me? 14:31, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

Pomarine skua[edit]

Catching up on IOC names now, I noticed they changed the name to pomarine jaeger. I know your side likes to call all the jaegers as skuas, so my plan is to just change the text of the article itself to jaeger, along with any article/redirect that is region neutral. Also by changing the pomarine to a jaeger, it would unite the 3 jaegers to make for less confusion......I'll also leave this on the Wikiproject talk page........Pvmoutside (talk) 18:22, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

Neha Thackeray Article Deleted as advertising[edit]

Hello Jim,

I'm very new to Wikipedia and I'm trying to understand and create articles. I have gone through the reasons stated Under section G11 and I understand that it's associated with advertising however the article I have written is just to give recognition to the eldest granddaughter of the greatest politician in India. (Bal Thackeray)

I would really appreciate if you could confirm that the career bit sounds like an advertisement so I can write it again and submit for review.

Thank you for the reference to the policy

Helen Hayes Hospital Deleted as Advertising[edit]

Hello Jim,

Please forgive me for not knowing the intricacies of Wikipedia. I did not understand that I could not provide information regarding Helen Hayes Hospital because I work there. Can you please explain to me how Helen Hayes Hospital can have a wikipedia page? The hospital is actually very important to the history of New York State, the nation, and rehabilitation medicine as it is believed to be the very first free-standing physical rehab hospital in the United States. Helen Hayes (the first lady of american theater) was also a very big contributor to the hospital and there is really not enough info out there about it, so I'd like to share what we know.

I also see that the Chicago Institute of Rehabilitation has a wikipedia entry as does Burke Rehabilitation Hospital. The Burke Rehab page was created and edited by a user called Burke Rehabilitation Hospital. It makes sense as we who work in these facilities have most of the info on them. (For example, I have access to an archive with thousands of photos and documents covering HHH's 117 year history.) Is there a way I can create a page for the hospital that is solely informational and submit it to wikipedia for review? I would also like to submit photos that we have from our archive that many others have never seen.

Thanks so much for your help with this and please forgive me for my mistakes. I didn't even realize we have two wikipedia profiles before you pointed it out (one in my name and one in the hospital name that my boss uses). My apologies!

Thanks again! Lisafie (talk) 15:02, 23 March 2017 (UTC)

Hi again Jim, If I am not able to write an entry for HHH, is there a way I can request that one be written? Thanks so much again for your help! Best Lisafie (talk) 15:54, 23 March 2017 (UTC)

Lisafie, I've seen your message, it might be tomorrow before I get time to reply Jimfbleak - talk to me? 17:15, 23 March 2017 (UTC)

Thanks, Jim! I've followed some of the instructions available on Wikipedia, making sure that I note my COI and also request someone else to write the article. I'll look forward to reading more from you about the process later on today or tomorrow. Again, thank you so much for your help! I apologize that I didn't follow the rules earlier!

Neha Thackeray Article[edit]

Hello Jim,

Thank you for the detailed explanation given. As mentioned I am very new to this and was not aware of the policies and procedures however I understand what you have mentioned. I can assure you that I do not work for her company and I'm not getting paid for writing or advertising for her. (As you can tell my skills with Wiki aren't good enough to get paid)

I agree that the matter was not in compliance with the policies you pointed out and it did sound like an advert however that only happened due to my ignorance of the policies as I'm new to this however I have learned a lot form the details you shared.

Please let me know if I could rewrite using the format Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Biographies and submit for review. I can follow ( as a reference to write it again along with valid references from trusted sources.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Thank you once again for taking the time to explain what went wrong.

Although I have a page, this is my first attempt to add a page regarding someone else. I was the editor for one of Mr. Lumpkin's books. Recently that book became a bestseller on Amazon. It occurred to me that he might deserve a page. I was told that the more links within the Wiki page the better for verification. Apparently this is not true. Please view the page and let me if simply listing the books and authors without links would conform to the rules. If not, please suggest another approach. Any advice is appreciated.
