Don Aslett[edit]

As an FYI, I did come back and work on this article. The right sources were obscured quite a bit by the number of articles about his books, but I think I found some good sources to round the article out.--CaroleHenson (talk) 02:14, 16 December 2016 (UTC)

Beauty Pageant AfD's[edit]

JPL, Thank you for that background. I have recently returned after a years-long wikibreak, so I am not familiar with some of the personalities. BTW, the RfC you indicated had a redlink. Did it get deleted some point in the past? Thanks again. Eggishorn (talk) (contrib) 01:09, 22 December 2016 (UTC)

  • No, it is still there. I am probably getting too frustrated at some people. I will try and see if I can create the right link.John Pack Lambert (talk) 01:10, 22 December 2016 (UTC)
Ok, I see it now. Thanks. I see that the consensus was that an explicit standard needed to be set. I'm just getting back into things here, so I'm not feeling like the one to restart that. Eggishorn (talk) (contrib) 01:14, 22 December 2016 (UTC)
Go further down, item 61 proposes a standard.John Pack Lambert (talk) 01:16, 22 December 2016 (UTC)
My apologies, I didn't read down far enough. I think it is an extremely reasonable standard, and will go there and say that. Maybe we can get other parties to chime in. Eggishorn (talk) (contrib) 01:19, 22 December 2016 (UTC)
I think that discussion has gotten to the point where starting a draft guideline is possible, so I went ahead and created one at Draft:Notability (beauty pageant participants). It looks like there is general agreement with your proposal. Cheers Eggishorn (talk) (contrib) 19:31, 22 December 2016 (UTC)

Hello, Johnpacklambert. You have new messages at Beemer69's talk page.
You can remove this notice at any time by removing the {{Talkback}} or {{Tb}} template.


Happy New Year. It's been about 10 days since anyone has made any suggestions at the Draft. I think it may be time to start moving it from draft status. There has been no attempt to change the line: "Winners of sub-national level pageants or subsidiary awards...are usually not notable for such per se..." I welcome your advice as to what the next step should be. Other efforts to publicize the "debate" have drawn little to no response, so I'm of the mind to simply move it to WP space and be done with it. Thanks.

Speedy deletion nomination of Indian television actresses[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. This is a notice to inform you that a tag has been placed on Indian television actresses requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here.

Fighting systemic bias[edit]

I just saved the article on Mongolia's current foreign minister from being prod deleted on the alleged ground of no sources. The issue of weather Mongolian government sources can be used for such a purpose is still open. I found ones from Russia, China, Nepal and a mention in a Reuters article. This is actually Tsend Mucnkh-Orgil's 2nd term as foriegn minister, and he has also been Mongolia's justice minister. No one from Europe or the United States who was even a 10th as notable would be put to prod deletion on no sources claims, and definately not have the article last 4 days there.John Pack Lambert (talk) 15:19, 10 February 2017 (UTC)

Nicole Bosso DiGiacobbe[edit]

This individual contacted me on my facebook page and threatened to go to the press if I did not restore the article on her. I really do not appreciate people trying to use Wikipedia as a platform for their self promotion. I just hope some people in the press will not run with another story to try to smear Wikipedia as sexist, and will actually take time to consider what is meant by reliable stories. When the coverage of her is her blog, her Linkedin page, an add article on her wedding, or a one sentance add article on someone elses wedding we are not talking about reliable, 3rd party sourcing. There is some 3rd party sourcing, but it is weak, and all focused on her being Miss Delaware USA. The following is a copy of what she said there "You're friends on Facebook Owner/Photographer at This Lovely Life Studied at Rutgers School of Law–Camden JAN 20TH, 11:31PM

Hi John,

I wanted to reach out to you about my wikipedia page. You deleted it and said there was nothing notable about me. That was pretty hurtful, considering I competed in Miss USA, was on a reality TV show on the CW Network, interned at the DE Supreme Court and am family friends with former VP Joe Biden. I also have 24,000+ followers on instagram, run a successful blog called This Lovely Life, and modeled at the Home Shopping Network.

I wanted to come to you first before taking this further to see if we could resolve this. Please get back to me as soon as you can because my wikipedia is linked on my media kit and resume and is now a broken link that many have pointed out to me. Thank you in advance for being understanding. Nicole MON 1:13PM You accepted Nicole's request. Eikipedia is not a place for self promotion. Being friends with the family of a vice president and being a contestant in Miss USA do not make one notable. You need to find another way to promote yourself and not try to misuse Wikipedia as a tool of self promotion. 10:07AM

"Competing in Miss USA does not make one notable." Interesting. I will see if the press agrees. And being a successful blogger with 25,000 fans, with photography work featured on Huffington Post, and USA Today is not notable? Graduating law school is not notable and interning at the DE Supreme Court for Chief Justice is not notable? Wow. I'm looking forward to seeing what the press has to say about all of this. You seem to try very very hard to suppress any success women have had. Very unfortunate.

Oh and participating on the CW's Network TV show is nothing to be noted either right? Yet celebrities and reality TV show stars get their own page. Hmm... I find your logic flawed entirely and really look forward to talking to the press.John Pack Lambert (talk) 03:59, 15 February 2017 (UTC)

  • I have to say none of this makes a person notable. "Photography works featured on Huffington Post and USA Today". Is she claiming she is a photo-journalist? Where are the 3rd party reliable sources that cover her as such? She wants us to declare her notable just because she graduated law school. Graduating law school is 100% not notable.John Pack Lambert (talk) 04:01, 15 February 2017 (UTC)

Discussion at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Hitomi Tanaka (3rd nomination)[edit]

You are invited to join the discussion at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Hitomi Tanaka (3rd nomination).

Deletion of page of Mr. Ajay Dhumal[edit]

Dear Mr. John,

I hope this finds you well.

Mr. Ajay Dhumal, is a well known industrialist in Maharashtra, India. Apart from being the Chairman & Managing Director of K.P. Group of Companies, he is very well known to the people of Maharashtra for his social work such as contribution to clean India initiative (Swatch Bharat Abhyan), Make in India movement led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and also recent appointment by the Prime Ministers of India's office under the environment department.

The appointment letter by the Secretary of State of Environment, Government of India, can be sent to you as well.

Please see the following links and articles, SOME OF WHICH ARE GOVERNMENT OF INDIA WEBSITES. I am sure after reading them you will be convinced that such a magnanimous but down to earth and low profile person should be listed on Wikipedia to inspire youth and be as a role model to look up to rather than many people listed who serve just the other purpose.

Thank You[edit]

Hey, I saw how you stuck up for my article "Dr. Dharambir Agnihotri" and I really appreciated. This was my first article so I did need a little guidance so I really appreciate you for that. I saw you made a couple edits on the page as well, thanks for that too. I also was just wondering how you stumbled upon my article? And also I wanted to import a picture but I needed help because I am new to wikipedia so if you could help me with that, that would be great.

Disambiguation link notification for March 31[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Al-Shymaa Kway-Geer, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Tanga (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

James J. Leonard Jr.[edit]

Hello-I am the creator of the page, and I do not understand what you mean by "mentions in passing"? He has actually been featured in a number of articles, so it wouldn't be that? I did not include all of those in the article because I didn't want it to sound like an ad or resume or cvv. He has been featured on national TV shows as himself so I could list and source more of those? Also---do you mean in the article, or sources/references that you could see linking from the AFD? I'd like to try and improve it if you mean the article. Thank you, ip because I use a whole different name now and don't want to appear as a SP.2601:80:4300:155E:C1B:22F7:4CD0:4798 (talk) 17:50, 31 March 2017 (UTC)

Also, I notice an article you have edited, David E. Sorensen and there is basically one source besides the obituary. Leonard has been featured much more widely and nationally than Sorenson, and I do understand the differences, but still I'm feeling a little confused here about why you would vote delete with the comments that you made. I'm hoping for some advice on what would make the article a "keep" for you, or a reconsideration please.2601:80:4300:155E:C1B:22F7:4CD0:4798 (talk) 18:27, 31 March 2017 (UTC)

'Restaurants established in' categeories[edit]

JPL, I see you have created some of these categories. I'm writing because you probably don't know but some editors have been categorizing these category pages 'Retail companies established in' the year involved. I think that's dead wrong. Retail and restaurant are totally different types of business. There is a category 'Food and drink companies established in'. That's fine.

Just recently I yanked Retail companies links from a bunch of restaurant categories but one editor restored it[1] and I took it back out again[2]. If you agree with my view, can you help support me if needed....William, is the complaint department really on the roof? 23:34, 14 April 2017 (UTC)

Your opinion[edit]

Hi there. I know you and I participate in a lot of AfD's, and I'd like your opinion before I nominate an article. Hank Thomas has several secondary sources to support notability, but after reading the article and several secondary sources, this person seems notable only for a single event (being on a Freedom Ride bus). He went on to have a successful career as a businessman and art collector, but those on their own would not merit a Wikipedia article. He also did not seem to have had any leadership position within the civil rights movement, or have received any significant awards. I've written articles about civil rights leaders, such as Maxine Smith, George Washington Lee, and R. S. Lewis, and there were multiple, tangible, notable civil rights or civic initiatives. I'm just not finding anything notable about this person except that he was on the bus. I'm not sure if passing WP:BASIC trumps WP:SINGLEEVENT. I'd appreciate your input. Cheers.

Speedy deletion nomination of Category:1945 establishments in Puerto Rico[edit]

A tag has been placed on Category:1945 establishments in Puerto Rico requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section C1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the category has been empty for seven days or more and is not a disambiguation category, a category redirect, a featured topics category, under discussion at Categories for discussion, or a project category that by its nature may become empty on occasion.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.
