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)

Draft:Notability_(beauty_pageant_participants)[edit]

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)

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.

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. 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.

Proposed deletion of Julia Mavimbela[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Julia Mavimbela has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Notability
This individual is wholly unknown, even inside South Africa for that matter, outside of LDS sectors. Her notability lies only in her being a Mormon convert. Every source is connected with the LDS church. If this were "Mormon Wikipedia," it would surely be notable, but this is Wikipedia.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist.

Ways to improve Melvin J. Ballard Center for Economic Self-Reliance[edit]

Hi, I'm Steve Quinn. Johnpacklambert, thanks for creating Melvin J. Ballard Center for Economic Self-Reliance!

I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix. This page does not qualify as a standalone article on Wikipedia because no independent sources cover this topic, therefore, I am restoring this to its redirect status. Please see WP:N for more information. Consider adding information about this topic to the main school article to which it redirects.

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse.

Proposed deletion of Lynn R. Carson[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Lynn R. Carson has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Carson fails author notability standards with no significant, reliable, third-party coverage in online or offline sources. Music-wise, he's also not notable, with little modern or old analysis of his work. Three sources the articles cite are a book written by Carson, a one-page passing mention in a book dedicated to Mormon hymns in general, and a directory entry, none of which confer notability.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Speedy deletion nomination of Category:1616 establishments in Wales[edit]

A tag has been placed on Category:1616 establishments in Wales 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.

Mass removal of film credits[edit]

You have been making mass edits removing thousands of credits from articles on actors, actresses, and films. These edits have not been accompanied by any explanation or edit summaries. Please explain the basis for your removal of credits from these articles, examples of which are listed below:

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in providing justification for these actions. Cbl62 (talk) 14:43, 31 December 2017 (UTC)

I note that in this diff, you reverted the restoration of credits to the Claire Windsor article on the ground that the films removed are "unnotable". Such a notability rationale is questionable as applied to an actor's filmography. Further, it is unclear how you are making the determination that certain films are "unnotable". Is it simply because certain films don't have articles on Wikipedia? Cbl62 (talk) 14:52, 31 December 2017 (UTC)
  • Wikipedia is not meant to be an indiscriminate listing of information. Long lists with little to no explanation are deprecated.John Pack Lambert (talk) 14:54, 31 December 2017 (UTC)
Your response makes little sense in the context of your recent mass removal of film credits. A list of actors/characters appearing in a film is not an "indiscriminate listing". Likewise, an actor's filmography is not an "indiscriminate listing". The word "indiscriminate" means "done at random or without careful judgment." This is wholly inapplicable to a particular film's cast listing or an actor's filmography. Indeed, these lists are the antithesis of "indiscriminate"; they are "discriminate". Cbl62 (talk) 15:03, 31 December 2017 (UTC)

Likewise for two movies now added to the above list; changes to articles on those movies now reverted. Bkengland (talk) 22:34, 31 December 2017 (UTC)

Is "American" and "US-American" the same?[edit]

Hi, I have many latin American friends, and whenever I used the word "American" not specifying that I meant "US-American" they felt insulted and corrected me. I feel they are right. There are ~911,000,000 people living in North- and Southamerica, and ~320,000,000 living in the USA. So why is there need to insult two third of all Americans? You undid where I corrected "...is an American actor" to "...is a US-American actor" stating "The usage in Wikipedia is American" - may I ask to kindly tell me where is it written in the Wikipedia Disclamers? Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by WissM (talkcontribs) 05:35, 6 January 2018 (UTC)

  • Sorry, I didn't expect that Wikipedia is a place of discrimination and where people have to feel insulted, and all is explained by "because everyone is doing so" ;-) (User WissM) 6 January 2018 (UTC)
WissM, you should read our article Americans. In the English language, the word "American" means a citizen of the United States, or things pertaining to the United States. No one would call a citizen of Brazil an "American citizen" or the food of Guatemala "American food". No one should feel insulted by the plain and ordinary meanings of common English language words. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 05:51, 6 January 2018 (UTC)
  • Wow, interesting lession learned! I am from Europe, citizen of the European Union, and I never would feel that when I say "European" it only includes members of the European Union and non-EU people (e.g. Switzerland, Norway, Belarus, Serbia etc.) being marginalised. But your US-American thinking in the context of using the word "America" is different. Interesting. (User WissM) 6 January 2018 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by WissM (talkcontribs)
You need to understand the common meanings of words as used in the English language, WissM. The word "European" refers to anything having to do with the continent of Europe, and that includes non-EU parts of Europe including Switzerland, Norway, and so on. The word "American" in the English language refers to people and things associated with the United States of America. Your personal preferences are irrelevant. Wikipedia uses the terminology that reliable sources use, and no reliable sources call the people whose biographies you have been disrupting "US-Americans". So, stop your disruption now.

Abusive Use of category hotcat to kill ancestral origins[edit]

You have been abusing use of Category hotcat to kill categories that say in what countries people are born and and their ancestries.

This is a prime example of your abuse. You used Category HotCat to kill Category:American People of Italian Descent on the article of Arnold Kent because the word Italy or Italian wasn't in the BODY of the article. The first sentence says be was born Lino Manetti in Florence. The dialogue box on the right with bio info shows that he was born Florence, Tuscany, ITALY on 21 January 1899. So your indiscriminate use of HotCat killed a valid category for this article because the algorithm used indiscriminately by you was not capable of picking up that Florence was in Italy, or picked up the info in the info box.

Your hatred of ancestral categories is well noted in your posts and editorial comments. Now it has risen to the level of abuse.

Based on posts I've read in Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Johnpacklambert you have a pathological instinct to delete articles and remove helpful categories.

I look forward to seeking action starting with posting on that page and learning more how to stop your abuse. Clearly suggestions and complains to date have been insufficient to change your destructive behaviors. Rsarlls (talk) 23:45, 7 January 2018 (UTC)

  • I removed Kent from that category on the grounds that his inclusion in the category was duplicative. Kent is already in a subcat for Italian immigrants to the US.

Hi Johnpacklambert, hoping you can advise me. I'm fairly new to editing. You commented on the AfD I created for the article on Joshua Claybourn. I'm reasonably sure that one of the other commenters (who has voted Keep, and also has had a hand in the article) is the subject of the article (his talk page mentions a website he runs, which, on looking at the website, says it is run by Joshua Claybourn).

Your opinion.★Trekker (talk) 01:18, 23 January 2018 (UTC)
You are ignoring the very clear rules of category order. An article should not be in both a parent category and a sub-cat.John Pack Lambert (talk) 01:19, 23 January 2018 (UTC)
The fact that you clearly haven't read these articles clearly enough to actually know what you're talking about. Their materla grandfather was full Irish and they had both Scotch-Irish and Scottish ancestry on their fathers side.
If your going to complain at leats be correct.★Trekker (talk) 01:21, 23 January 2018 (UTC)
Scotch-Irish is a sub-set of Scottish. We do not seek to arbitrarily include all possible ancestries. This gets excessively large when we deal with ancestors as far back as this is starting to deal with.John Pack Lambert (talk) 01:22, 23 January 2018 (UTC)
No, it's clearly stated that they had ancestry from difernt lines. You don't decide what should go and not based on your missunderstanding of the material. And by the way, Scotch-Irish are just as much considered Irish than Scottish. Why should I take you seriously? You've already made several mistakes.★Trekker (talk) 01:26, 23 January 2018 (UTC)
If someone has a Scotch-Irish mother and a Scottish father, would you only include Scotch-Irish? No, that doesn't make sense.★Trekker (talk) 01:27, 23 January 2018 (UTC)
Yes you would, because you do not needlessly put people in excessive categories when they are already in sub-categories.John Pack Lambert (talk) 01:29, 23 January 2018 (UTC)
That's nonsensical. Ok, for real, sorry for edit warring but none of these articles have too many categories and it's all cited in the text. Why are you so insistent on fighting with me when it serves no point? Also, form what I can tell the idea to sum up Scotch-Irish people as just a subcategory of either Scottish or Irish seems rather simplistic and ignores that they had their own culture and heritage. I don't intend to revert you anymore but I hope you reconsider because of Wikipedia guidelines really side with you then they are dumb as hell and make no sense.★Trekker (talk) 01:39, 23 January 2018 (UTC)

Deletion of Natasha Pavlovich[edit]

Hi, is it possible to have more info as to why the Natasha Pavlovich page was deleted? Should the page be reorganized to first reflect her Miss Universe experience seeing as several Miss Universes already have Wikipedia pages? Not only do these other Miss Universe contestants have pages, but they have no other experience except for being a Miss Universe contestant, whereas Pavlovich has acted in many American TV shows (she even had a recurring role in "Pride and Joy" with Jeremy Piven). For examples of other Miss Universe Wikipedia pages or pages similar to Pavlovich's acting experience, you can vist the links listed here : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Natasha_Pavlovich

Plus, looking through wikipedia, there are other actresses with even less experience in supporting roles that already have Wikipedia pages. Pavlovich's filmography includes over 50 roles so is there a reason as to why her greater experience might count as less? You can see her filmography by clicking on the link also posted in : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Natasha_Pavlovich

A partial filmography is also found on TCM : http://www.tcm.com/tcmdb/person/1310276%7C0/Natasha-Pavlovich/

A page also exists for Pavlovich in the Serbian wikipedia so is an English version then possible?

For helping to keep Wikipedia tidy by participating tirelessly at AfD, and not being afraid to ¡vote keep once in a while when the article deserves it. Ilyina Olya Yakovna (talk) 15:20, 3 February 2018 (UTC)

FYI she was a sockpuppet.104.163.148.25 (talk) 16:38, 14 February 2018 (UTC)

Ben Park[edit]

Last time around you said keep. Now he's published a monograph at Cambridge. Within your current understanding of GNG/PROF Do you still think Oman's blp (which I'm *not* going to nom -

cos *I* think Oman's bk pub enough!) should be kept?--Hodgdon's secret garden (talk) 00:16, 2 March 2018 (UTC)
  • I laid out all my reasoning on both issues, and I still say delete Park and keep Oman. One monograph is not enough to pass the notability guidelines for academics. Oman clearly and without question passes such guidelines. Park clearly does not.John Pack Lambert (talk) 00:18, 2 March 2018 (UTC)
Oman's case is still not clear to me (I was hoping you'd help me see it) but you seem to have an edge to your voice, so I won't ask you to help me understand.--Hodgdon's secret garden (talk) 00:22, 2 March 2018 (UTC)
Your !vote was backed by in-depth, comprehensive understanding of the sourcing, I'll grant you that much.

As for Oman's, I just took a gander over there. It seems https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/128.239.104.188 an ip addr recently has contributed some heavy duty stuff that's been done by Oman over the last couple of years. So yeah I'd say guess myself his blp should be a slam dunk. Of course, some !voters go by ideosyncratic tea leaves in whatever afd (i.e according to Fowler bro.s' usage (...rather click the handy ref provided in the text and see what entity sponsors whatever Mo.studies award is in question)?--Hodgdon's secret garden (talk) 00:53, 2 March 2018 (UTC)

I respond to DGG and you (everybody else didn't bother to explain their !votes in any detail) in the afd thread.--Hodgdon's secret garden (talk) 01:58, 2 March 2018 (UTC)

Ardis Parshall[edit]

Haven't googled Ardis E. Parshall ("independent historian and author of the Keep-a-Pitchin-In Mormon history blog. ") lately, well, until just now. But let's say she's been specifically profiled or subject to sufficient MSM coverage (eg i recall that Ardis did cosign the SCotUS amicus brief Oman had co-authored: a lot of stuff like that). If so: !vote to keep? (Me: Yes!) Or, to delete?

Likely !vote by user:DGG? Likely yours, then (hetorical quandary; you'd not "have to" answer--at least, specifically)?--Hodgdon's secret garden (talk) 03:09, 2 March 2018 (UTC)

Here's an interview of Ardis Parshall by Peggy Stack. WP has such a small percentage of blp's about women . IMHO it's a travesty that wp:Basic so often is subverted in the interest of snooty exclusivity. (Come to think of it, maybe this inclination is in some ways an analogue of "not in my backyard"ism. Just a thought!)--Hodgdon's secret garden (talk) 03:44, 25 March 2018 (UTC)

Re your afd nom[edit]

Since !voting often as not gets so weighted by my mere nose counts, Could you go back and edit your nom and at least mention her 2017 Greg Kofford title? (I just added it to Ardis's blp.) That way those whose threshold involves a pair of scholarly books won't get there !votes in before its too late to get back to them. Thanks! (I mean, if you can).--Hodgdon's secret garden (talk) 05:26, 2 March 2018 (UTC)

The article Jayne Marie Fleming Lange has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

AFD of Elaine Herzberg[edit]

I am sure you watch the page but is there any room for possible consideration of alternatives. The AFD was (in my opinion) prematurely closed and I had to request it be reopened. I agree with your comments concerning "not a newspaper" that to me includes "not a newspaper obituary". The sources do indicate the issues with self-driving/autonomous vehicles/cars not just limited to Uber can develop into more than a pseudo-biography obituary. I think these issues deserve more than a paragraph entry, but more I think that a "no consensus" titled as a biography is certainly against policies and guidelines. Anyway, I may be barking up a wrong tree that seeking collaboration and editor consensus over an admin chosen decision is a worthwhile endeavor but it can't hurt to try. If you deem this worth a second look maybe you can weigh in on the idea? Thanks, Otr500 (talk) 19:27, 31 March 2018 (UTC)

Hello friend, I hope you are well. I'll be ever so grateful if you will please help me to prevent the Raj Kumar Sharma article for remaining as an overstuffed puff piece.

Will be interesting to see if Turner's B.Y. bio becomes overshadowed, in the research area, by Grow's upcoming one.--Hodgdon's secret garden (talk) 20:06, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
  • I expect Grow's bio of BY to set a new standard. There are enough issues with Turner's bio that I expect Grow to be able to supercede it. Grow was the co-author of the very top notch bio of Parley P. Pratt. He studied in part under Richard L. Bushman, who has set a new top standard in Mormon biography with Rough Stone Rolling". Beyond this he was involved in publishing materials related to the Council of 50. Whatever Turner said on it, it was not fully informed by the most recently available documents. Turner also is felt by some to not have given enough insight and understanding into the 1870s institution of new stakes and other Church reforms done by Brigham Young then. This is probably in part because of the approach Turner is coming from. To many, Leonard J. Arrington's Brigham Young: American Moses is still a top work, but there are issues it addresses less than could be, and it is difficult to see some of its treatment of some issues as fully reflecting existing scholarship. Grow being at the center of the Joseph Smith papers project, and having easy access to the Church archives and other related documents will give him a lot of depth of knowledge.John Pack Lambert (talk) 22:15, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
Agreed on all points (from my armchair, with no inside info or much of any kind of background in this stuff.
Yep, I see ur right re Walker' s Grant bio. Ben Park: "Between writing his [Walker's] dissertation on the Godbeites in the 1970s and the actual publication of the book in the 1990s, Walker took serious the call to do more 20th century history, and set out to write a biography of one of its most important, and still under-studied, figures: Heber J. Grant. ... ... ... He originally set out to write an exhaustive biography of Brigham Young, but was recruited instead to co-author the Church’s authoritative account of its most tragic episode [the MMM]. ... ... ... Even after his diagnosis a couple of years after the project’s completion, Walker remained feverish with his work on other topics, most especially Brigham Young. ... ... ...his entire career was, in a way, meant to climax with the Young biography that was never completed. Most of his work–on leadership culture, native relations, political conflict, authority and dissent, pioneer life–were concentric circles zeroing in on the life of Mormonism’s most contentious figure. We, as a history community, have been robbed of a critically-acclaimed play’s final act, when all the sophisticated themes were to finally weave together."[9]

WP:GNG - Ante Bakmaz[edit]

Hi Johnpacklambert,

In recognition of your concerns regarding this article, I have searched for (and since added) a number of additional references outside of the typical match reports etc. I was wondering if you would consider these articles enough to satisfy the WP:GNG criteria.

Disambiguation link notification for April 25[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited Harsens Island, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Native Americans (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are usually incorrect, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of unrelated topics with similar titles. (Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.)

Mason's plate seems fairly full. "His [Mason's] current [2016] writing projects include a college-level textbook that will serve as an introduction to Mormonism, a book (co-authored with David Pulsipher) constructing a Mormon theology and ethic of peace, and a biography of Ezra Taft Benson."[10]--Hodgdon's secret garden (talk) 05:27, 21 April 2018 (UTC)

Patrick Mason, April 17: "If I’m going to be completely honest with myself, I have to admit that I was working on a biography of Ezra Taft Benson. For a variety of reasons, which mostly included my own workload but also lack of access to his private papers in the Church Archives, the project has been put on the backburner. Other scholars, especially Matt Harris, have lapped me on their Benson research at this point."[11]--Hodgdon's secret garden (talk) 23:54, 25 April 2018 (UTC)

Category discussions[edit]

The best suggestion I have to offer is to use WP:Twinkle instead of manually formatting a nomination. If you do that, Twinkle will automatically perform the creator notification for you as part of the process. I've never known any easier way to get it done. Bearcat (talk) 18:50, 6 May 2018 (UTC)

request about an AFD started by a sock[edit]

Hi, you participated at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Mitu Bhowmick Lange after that AFD was started by a now-blocked sock, one of a number of AFDs started by the linked sock accounts. Perhaps they were trying to confuse about their contributions as part of bigger plan to get rid of one target article. Then they AFD'd a bunch of articles started by me, because i called them a likely sock and participated at the SPI. Most of these AFDs have been closed as Technical Keep or similar after they were confirmed as socks, where there were no "delete" votes by anyone else. I wonder if you would please help resolve this one AFD by your withdrawing your "Delete" vote and then closing it yourself, which you could do as then there would be no outstanding Delete votes. It is your right not to, on basis of your sincere judgment about the quality of the article, but I think you might agree the article is not too horrible and that this AFD about it is not the way forward about it. Maybe it could be tagged, and leave possibility of a future AFD. It just seems crummy for good editors to be stuck continuing a discussion started by an abuser of the community, and with the discussion and voting confused, so I thought I'd try asking for your help. No problem if you choose not to. Thanks for considering. --Doncram (talk) 23:18, 28 June 2018 (UTC)

I know we've collaborated on a number of AfD's, so I'd appreciate your opinion.

After a bit of general cleanup to Smoke Dawg I was left feeling that the article completely lacks notability.

Overcategorization[edit]

Hi there! I just removed some of the categories you added to Ralph Vary Chamberlin, as Overcategorization. Subjects should generally categorized by defining traits or other central characteristics, rather than trivial, ephemeral, or arbitrarily intersecting traits (see WP:Defining). Thus, a Latter Day Saint who worked in Pennsylvania for 2 years probably shouldn't go in Category:Latter Day Saints from Pennsylvania, as their religion has no relevance to their residence, but might warrant it if their noteworthy accomplishments in Pennsylvania were LDS related (a rough rule of thumb for categories is "would a book on (category name) plausibly include this topic?"). If you've made such additions to other articles, please take a moment to reconsider the relevance and appropriateness, and consider paring down to only the most defining category/ies. Cheers! --Animalparty! (talk) 20:28, 19 August 2018 (UTC)
