How did you do it?

I blanked the nonsense page and saw it wasn't really deleted... I was trying to find a way to do the deletion myself but couldn't because the guidelines on how to delete say nothing about how to delete... So, what's the trick? I mean, you took it out from my hands!Undead Herle King (talk) 03:54, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

I was starting to guess that was the explanation... Indeed I found you had deleted it immediatly after I decided all I could do was tag it... So... What can non-admins do when such blatantly stupid and racist articles are found*? Is there a "ultra speedy deletion" tag or something like that that ranks even above speedy deletion? (I've seen the later used to much on articles that could do better with some work) [*like thta one on that false phobia]Undead Herle King (talk) 04:01, 2 March 2008 (UTC)
Thanks, I guess I aint blanking again, obscuring the contents wouldn't help the case for deletion... I just blanked 'caused I didn't knew better and thought that was the way to deletion (blank the page, blank pages linking to it), well, no morewasting of your time, see ya later, maybe, bye.

Requesting assistance with Wikipedia:Version 1.0 Editorial Team/Generate categories

Hey, I need your help with something. I supported the establishment of WikiProject Robotics to be formed a while back and apparently it got created, but no one's running it, so I'm trying to set everything up for them. I'm trying to have the categories for WP:ROBO done for the WP 1.0 Assessment bot to start running stats on it, but since I'm not an admin, I can't run the script. Wikipedia:Version 1.0 Editorial Team/Generate categories requires an admin to edit the protected section, replace "Foobar" with "Robotics", run the link, and rollback the page to Foobar. This is supposedly going to automatically run the bot to catch all of the project articles during the next time it activates. I'd appreciate it if you can help me with this. Thanks! - Jameson L.

Deletion Query

Hello,

Why was this article [Ross Mullan] deleted by you? With all due respect, Wikipedia is not for the US only, so if you are not in the UK, and if you do not watch British TV, you can not tell if someone is notable or non-notable just by Google-ing them. How do I restore/dispute the deletion? Many thanks! Kavakava1 (talk) 13:41, 2 February 2008 (UTC)

You go to WP:DR, that is, if it was spam, there's nothing to contest about. BoL 20:31, 2 February 2008 (UTC)

Deletion Query

Hi,

I wrote the article "Temporal paradox (paleontology)". I saw today that this was deleted by you on November 18th, 2007. I could not find any of the five days of discussion about deleting it in the discussion archives. Please let me know why it was deleted, and how I can get the text back so that I can add the refs or whatever it needs to go back up. It has links on several other paleo pages that are now dead. Thanks.Jbrougham (talk) 03:29, 3 February 2008 (UTC)

My Talk Page

Do not make changes to it. Thanks BillyTFried (talk) 00:58, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

It does not violate policy and what you are doing is vandalism whihc DOES violate policy. BillyTFried (talk) 01:01, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

No it does not, and if you are so sure it does then cite the exact policy it violates. BillyTFried (talk) 01:06, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

Yes. Thank you for resolving this situation. How do you do the tag that puts a strikeout through everything you've said? Or should I just delete that section of the ANI. BillyTFried (talk) 01:31, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

Thanks. sorry for being so hyper, but you saw all I endured just for this simple solution that you've accomplished. BillyTFried (talk) 01:37, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

I am curious why you took Billy T. Fried's comments off my talk page:
  • You "resolved" this matter without any input from me -- it's my Talk page, afterall.
  • The discussion about this matter occurred in Handling sock puppetry (block review), not in a forum set aside especially for this matter to be discussed.
  • How can something Billy T. Fried wrote on my Talk page constitute an attack by me against him? That's absurd. What he wrote has been on my Talk page for four months or more.
  • Most importantly, I am the subject of a tabloid article in the SF Weekly called "Wikipedia Idiots: The Edit Wars of San Francisco", and I have parred down my Talk page to items that pertain to that article in case readers of that article want to come to my Talk page to see my side of the story. Billy's comment on my Talk page was mentioned in the article. In fairness to me, readers of that article should be able to see what Billy wrote and judge for it themselves, not judge in the light of how the author of the article presented it. In order for readers to see my side, Billy's comment has to be where readers can find it. That's only fair to me.

I request that you put Billy's comments back on my Talk page. Besides the fact that the matter wasn't fairly "resolved.," it's a question of me being able to tell my side of the story to newspaper readers. Thanks. Griot (talk) 06:35, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

What does "use the appropriate diff located in your talk page history" mean? You're saying that I can alert SF Weekly readers to a previous version of my Talk page by putting a link to that previous version on my Talk page? Griot (talk) 06:50, 17 February 2008 (UTC)
Just to be clear then, I can put a link to this on my Talk page for anyone to click? This isn't going to be the subject of another round and around and around of debate? And I don't want the link to say "this." I want it to say something like, "Readers of the SF Weekly article who want to see the Billy T. Fried quote mentioned in that article may click this link. I want SF Weekly readers to understand how to click the link. They do not know their way around wikipedia. Griot (talk) 06:57, 17 February 2008 (UTC)
Me talk to Billy? Have you see this? Griot (talk) 07:26, 17 February 2008 (UTC)
BTW, my first comment there was originally directly under the section titled 7 Why Me? But Griot penned that title He Dribbles Before He Shoots and later in the conversation once I noticed he altered my comments by making a title that mocked me shoots so instead of reverting it back to how it REALLY HAPPENED I sarcastically added to it in parens (While Griot shakes in his boots). BillyTFried (talk) 08:04, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

I object to any display of the comments I made that will have them taken out of context. Either display the comments within the context of the actual short conversation where I was RESPONDING to Griot's snide taughting question of if I actually lived in SF or not or do not display them at all as this is a clear attempt at misrepresenting me by making it look like I said what I did out of the blue (and in deed as a threat as he falsy claimed). And if you look at Griot's history page I never even tried to delete the whole conversation but only restored it to the way it originally occurred as can be seen here: [1] Just as I said on the ANI page It would clearly not be accebtible if somebody posted a setnence on my talk page that said...<br\>

  • Hey Bill I wanted you to know that I plan to kill the whole trivia section of that article that you wrote.

And I changed that user's comment to say...

  • Hey Bill I wanted you to know... that I plan to kill... you.

Regardless of what ios viewable in the history for the savvy Wikipedia user Just as Griot has the right to have the comment mentioned in the article available for readers to see I deserve for them to be able to see why those comments were made. Also, I would like toi point out that I can solve this myself by just TAKING MY YOUTUBE SHOOTING RANGE VIDEO DOWN. But I have not up to this point. Please respect my wishes and I will leave it up for people to see. BillyTFried (talk) 07:17, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

I made an identical comment as the one above on Griot's talk page in response to you asking if he cleared this with me and he simply deleted all my comments. Doesn't seem very cooperative eh? Removing the video from youtube now. BillyTFried (talk) 07:34, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

I just added my response you you on Griot's talk page again and he immediately deletd it again calling it vandalism. He also removed you comment asking about if I was ok with this as well. You see this is the game he plays. [2] BillyTFried (talk) 07:43, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

  • Griot has requested via email that I post something to his talk page that he says will resolve the whole situation. His request seems reasonable enough so I will oblige him. BillyTFried (talk) 22:54, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for help!--Taulant23 (talk) 06:35, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

I am assuming you should try to make things easier for your fellow native speakers of English. Why don't you agree on PRISHTINA? This is official now.--Getoar (talk) 08:50, 18 February 2008 (UTC)
It says use a common name and I believe Prishtina is common; it is used and preferred by the people of Prishtina.--Getoar (talk) 08:53, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

Take a look at this address in English (left, bottom): [3]. And what do you say about Iran being called Persia before 1935? It all changed within the night.--Getoar (talk) 08:58, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

The former has taken precedence only because of the Serbian official spelling. Let's wait then a couple of days and see how English newspapers are going to start using PRISHTINA. Leave Pristina right now then.--Getoar (talk) 09:02, 18 February 2008 (UTC)
The Polish example actually gives me hope. One day it will be Prishtina on wikipedia. Do you agree at least?--Getoar (talk) 09:04, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

It looks like Getoar did a copy and paste move so when you moved Prishtina to Priština you lost the whole edit history. I don't know if this can be undone and fixed but if it can it would be a good idea to get the edit history of Priština back, instead of the short edit history of Prishtina as it is now. LonelyMarble (talk) 09:20, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

Pri(š|s|sh)tina page history

Hello, I see you did something this morning to the page history of that article, fixing old cut-and-paste moves. Are you sure you fixed it completely? I still see separate page histories for Priština and Prishtina. Fut.Perf. 11:37, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the reply. Actually, shouldn't we be cleaning up that old cut-and-paste move from 2003 too? There's an old bit of page history from 2003 at Prishtina, that too could be history-merged into the current article. Fut.Perf. 06:18, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Hey, I am the one whose edits are reverted. I offered like 10 sourced for a single issue which has been proven now (Dardani being an Illyrian tribe), and this man tell me I have no clue what Thraco-Illyrian means. I am an Illyrian myself as a matter of fact and I will show him what the latter means. He should look for Thracians though.--Getoar (talk) 06:12, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

And do you think we have a chance to get rid of that Pristina with the diacritic. I though you agreed last time that we should use English names. The Serbian one should have a lesser chance than the Albanian one after all.--Getoar (talk) 06:13, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

3 reverts....

You are right, but my edit is well-backed, not only by User:Getoar's own sources, but even by wikipedia itself. Dardani as indicated in wikipedia's own article edited well BEFORE Kosovo's UDI clearly states that Dardani were Thraco-Illyrian. Moreover, the Dardania article states that the name Dardania is not surely of Illyrian origin. And, even User:Getoar's own source of Mrs Papazoglu states that clearly. He even keeps changing Kosovo back to Kosova... as well, as referring to it as Dardania, "from Albanian word dardhë = pear; literally Pearland" The POV in that is really clear. Do as you wish, but, do take responsibility for what is going on. My contribution here Talk:Kosovo#Kosovo_and_Dardania remains unanswered. Heracletus (talk) 06:27, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Sorry Kurykh, I blocked both Heracletus and Getoar without seeing you had just warned them. If you prefer to give them a chance after the warning, please feel free to unblock. Fut.Perf. 06:31, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Deletion review of Kord (band)

Hi. You finalised the deletion review of Kord (band). As per the rules cited at Wikipedia:Deletion_policy#Deletion_review I am first trying to deal with you about overturning the deletion. A Wikipedian has already tried to do this, as seen on User_talk:Kurykh/Archive_10 but you seem to have failed to reply! (I will try to assume good faith). I am independant to this issue and have come to help: I didn't participate in the article or its deletion review.
As per WP:MUS - the notability guidelines for a band, the band qualifies for notability as it "Has had a charted hit on any national music chart.", see | Romanian Top Hundred - please navigate to Year 2005, Issue 50.
As an admin I think you should actually be disappointed at the AFD - I wonder if you are? Users had found verifiable sources (at least one) of this bands notability, and you approved of the delete. One contributor made several posts citing references to the band's notability, to which nobody disagreed, and you failed to acknowledge this in your decision. Furthermore, you failed to acknowledge anything in your decision - such as on what grounds did you authorise and approve the decision. You failed to Nobody managed to add any tags to the article (other than the existing AFD warning), or explain to one of the article's main contributors what he/she needed to do to allow the article to keep. They never even stood a chance.
Even if you are correct in your deletion of this article, it is extremely disappointing the fact that you failed to adjudicate a rational outcome; you failed to acknowledge the arguments and set the records straight.
I don't know about you, but when an article is salvagable on Wikipedia, I don't know... fix it, put up tags, do something!
I would recreate the article myself, but it would be deleted citing G4 - recreation of an article using already-deleted content. It would take a good admin such as yourself to stop such a thing.
As already mentioned, a user already approached you about this in December, please would you be so kind as to give his work -- apparently notable and verifiably -- some attention.
Please consider this rationally.
Thanks Rfwoolf (talk) 15:35, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

Hello, sorry for the accusatory tone, I would have hoped you would have read frustration into it, not specifically directed at you, i.e. read it in a different voice. Thanks for the response. You have recommended Deletion Review, and have favored consensus in a system where rationality often fails to manifest: the AFDs are frequented mostly by users that want to find articles to delete, as opposed to being frequented by users that want to find articles to keep. It is sad -- and disappointing to me at least -- that when a minority of 1 user provides verifiable sources for an article to stay, outvoiced by tunnel-visioned users bloody-thirsty for articles to delete, that the closing admin would ignore the "truth". This is not a very high standard, I'm sure you will agree. You are going on Wikibreak, it would be pointless taking you to task about your decision because all admins are doing it. I would only hope that some day the system will improve. I am also hopeful, that the Deletion Review will find that the article should have been saved from Deletion based on compliance with notability guidelines. Rfwoolf (talk) 08:10, 22 February 2008 (UTC)

User talk:AL2TB

I see you protected AL2TB's talk page; I was wondering why you did so? The protection policy specifically doesn't allow protection of user talk pages at the users' request, so I expect you had a specific reason? — Coren (talk) 20:53, 3 March 2008 (UTC)

Oh, I don't think it's a serious matter. Just that my reading of the policy spells out what can be protected and doesn't seem to leave room for user talk pages— and given than semi-protection is specifically not allowed I always understood it to mean that full protection was right out.  :-)
Mind you, I don't think there's any specific problem about it, just that it seemed odd to me and that I'm not sure I see the point. — Coren (talk) 02:00, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

Station Schedule Edits

I added the train station schedule pages to the Metro-North pages laboriously, and you overzealously deleted them. The reason I added the stationstops links was because there is no way to link to the individual station train schedule on MTA's site. It horrible.

There is likely nothing of more importance on the Metro-North station pages than the Train Schedule. I know people who are coming to these pages, like me, are looking for the station schedule - please restore these links.

I am not entirely versed on wikipedia's policies, but I am pretty sure a link to the train station schedule for a train station is pretty appropriate. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.190.153.162 (talk) 03:50, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

hey, if you're online now, I just wanted to mention that there are some RPP requests that have been sitting around. thanks, Enigma message 01:31, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

The Game (game)

Since you recreated the article, you should probably unprotect the talk page as well.

Also, I'd like to move the article to the more appropriate title The Game (mind game), but that target is also under protection. WarpstarRider 02:29, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

re. Serb propaganda in the Yugoslav wars

Hi, as an alternative to redirecting the article to Serbian nationalism I suggest a redirect to the Role of Serb media in the 1991-1999 wars in the former Yugoslavia article. Better, yet, perhaps change the name of that article to simply Role of media during in the 1991-1999 wars in the former Yugoslavia. Would you be OK with this?Osli73 (talk) 22:17, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

Archiving of MONGO discussion on WP:ANI

I dispute your closing. A long-time contributor has been driven off of Wikipedia, and we haven't come to an agreement on what to do yet. Nwwaew (Talk Page) (Contribs) (E-mail me) 18:57, 13 April 2008 (UTC)

What would you suggest would be the more appropriate venues? Nwwaew (Talk Page) (Contribs) (E-mail me) 19:01, 13 April 2008 (UTC)

Love the UK election infoboxes

I've implemented it for Australian federal election, 2007 but unfortunately two so far believe that the bottom incumbent/pm-elect section does not matter and that govt should be which party was in power before, not which party was in power after. As a result, Howard and his 65 seats, a loss, are bolded. Do you know if this infobox has some sort of help/info text to indicate that the party in power after/majority of seats should be the one bolded and marked as govt?
