I have unreviewed a page you curated[edit]

Thanks for reviewing Grupo paranga, Largoplazo.

Unfortunately Jackmcbarn has just gone over this page again and unreviewed it. Their note is:

Article has a lot of issues other than the COI, so it needs further review (and quite possibly tagging for deletion)

To reply, leave a comment on Jackmcbarn's talk page.

I think someone needs to review this, whether it meets speedy deletion or not.

To reply, leave a comment on Josu4u's talk page.

You probably didn't realize this but the talk page conversation started a day or so after I had done the redirect. Best, Barkeep49 (talk) 03:28, 31 July 2018 (UTC)

@Barkeep49: No, I'm pretty sure that 02:16 UTC on 25 July (the timestamp on the launch of the discussion by user JC7V7DC576), 03:26 UTC on 25 July (when I contributed to the discussion), and 03:30 UTC on 25 July (when I placed the proper merge tag on the article) come before 05:14 UTC on 25 July (when you replaced the article's contents with the redirect).

Thank you[edit]

Sorry was on leave for a few days and did not even realize what had happened. I am new to adding information to the site and I am not exactly tech savvy. I have been in the US Army for nearly 15 years as a 74D CBRN soldier, former the CWS. I have been deployed to Iraq, Afghanistan, Qatar and Korea. I also hold a B.S. in environmental science and have attended many CBRN related courses. If there is any other way I can prove my credentials please let me know and I will furnish them.

Very Respectfully Wandering Historian Wandering Historian (talk) 14:44, 11 August 2018 (UTC)

@Wandering Historian: Greetings. There's no need for you to supply your credentials, but I want to clarify something because I think you may have an incorrect impression. While it is certainly useful for people who are experts in a subject to contribute to articles relating to that subject, a Wikipedia article, formally speaking, isn't a compilation of the personal knowledge, experience, and observations of the people contributing to the article, but of information about its topic that is available in what can be classified as reliable sources. Contributing knowledge of your own that isn't expressed in such sources is considered original research, which isn't admissible. Even conclusions that you have drawn on your own from material that is found in reliable sources is considered synthesis, which likewise can't be included. Conversely, an editor who has no background in a subject but finds relevant, reference-quality material in reliable sources may contribute them.
Therefore, by all means please make use of your knowledge and experience to help build Wikipedia, relying on it to understand what's pertinent to a reference article on a subject, but also to guide you in selecting suitable references to cite in footnotes when you do so.

NPR Newsletter No.13 18 September 2018[edit]

Hello Largoplazo, thank you for your work reviewing New Pages!

The New Page Feed currently has 2700 unreviewed articles, up from just 500 at the start of July. For a while we were falling behind by an average of about 40 articles per day, but we have stabilised more recently. Please review some articles from the back of the queue if you can (Sort by: 'Oldest' at Special:NewPagesFeed), as we are very close to having articles older than one month.

Project news
As part of this project, the feed will have some larger updates to functionality next month. Specifically, ORES predictions will be built in, which will automatically flag articles for potential issues such as vandalism or spam. Copyright violation detection will also be added to the new page feed. See the projects's talk page for more info.
Other
Moving to Draft and Page Mover
  • Some unsuitable new articles can be best reviewed by moving them to the draft space, but reviewers need to do this carefully and sparingly. It is most useful for topics that look like they might have promise, but where the article as written would be unlikely to survive AfD. If the article can be easily fixed, or if the only issue is a lack of sourcing that is easily accessible, tagging or adding sources yourself is preferable. If sources do not appear to be available and the topic does not appear to be notable, tagging for deletion is preferable (PROD/AfD/CSD as appropriate). See additional guidance at WP:DRAFTIFY.
  • If the user moves the draft back to mainspace, or recreates it in mainspace, please do not re-draftify the article (although swapping it to maintain the page history may be advisable in the case of copy-paste moves). AfC is optional except for editors with a clear conflict of interest.
  • Articles that have been created in contravention of our paid-editing-requirements or written from a blatant NPOV perspective, or by authors with a clear COI might also be draftified at discretion.
  • The best tool for draftification is User:Evad37/MoveToDraft.js(info). Kindly adapt the text in the dialogue-pop-up as necessary (the default can also be changed like this). Note that if you do not have the Page Mover userright, the redirect from main will be automatically tagged as CSD R2, but in some cases it might be better to make this a redirect to a different page instead.
  • The Page Mover userright can be useful for New Page Reviewers; occasionally page swapping is needed during NPR activities, and it helps avoid excessive R2 nominations which must be processed by admins. Note that the Page Mover userright has higher requirements than the NPR userright, and is generally given to users active at Requested Moves. Only reviewers who are very experienced and are also very active reviewers are likely to be granted it solely for NPP activities.
List of other useful scripts for New Page Reviewing

  • Twinkle provides a lot of the same functionality as the page curation tools, and some reviewers prefer to use the Twinkle tools for some/all tasks. It can be activated simply in the gadgets section of 'preferences'. There are also a lot of options available at the Twinkle preferences panel after you install the gadget.
  • In terms of other gadgets for NPR, HotCat is worth turning on. It allows you to easily add, remove, and change categories on a page, with name suggestions.
  • MoreMenu also adds a bunch of very useful links for diagnosing and fixing page issues.
  • User:Equazcion/ScriptInstaller.js(info): Installing scripts doesn't have to be complicated. Go to your common.js and copy importScript( 'User:Equazcion/ScriptInstaller.js' ); into an empty line, now you can install all other scripts with the click of a button from the script page! (Note you need to be at the ".js" page for the script for the install button to appear, not the information page)
  • User:TheJosh/Scripts/NewPagePatrol.js(info): Creates a scrolling new pages list at the left side of the page. You can change the number of pages shown by adding the following to the next line on your common.js page (immediately after the line importing this script): npp_num_pages=20; (Recommended 20, but you can use any number from 1 to 50).
  • User:Primefac/revdel.js(info): Is requesting revdel complicated and time consuming? This script helps simplify the process. Just have the Copyvio source URL and go to the history page and collect your diff IDs and you can drop them into the script Popups and it will create a revdel request for you.
  • User:Lourdes/PageCuration.js(info): Creates a "Page Curation" link to Special:NewPagesFeed up near your sandbox link.
  • User:Writ Keeper/Scripts/deletionFinder.js: Creates links next to the title of each page which show up if it has been previously deleted or nominated for deletion.
  • User:Evad37/rater.js(info): A fantastic tool for adding WikiProject templates to article talk pages. If you add: rater_autostartNamespaces = 0; to the next line on your common.js, the prompt will pop up automatically if a page has no Wikiproject templates on the talk page (note: this can be a bit annoying if you review redirects or dab pages commonly).

REGARDING THE DELETION OF EVANS KARIUKI WIKIPEDIA PAGE[edit]

Hello Sir/Madam In regard to the article : [[1]] Kindly do not delete the article - took me a lot of time to edit. I am working on getting more references . I am from Nairobi Kenya and I found that he is a public figure of sufficient public interest . He heads EYA Kenya . He is also the founder of FirebrandNation . He is a pastor at Eternal Life Harvest Center - KnoxVille Tennessee , where he has been greatly involved in ending Gang-related violence in the area. Please consider this. You can email me back at daggieblanqx@gmail.com Thank you . — Preceding unsigned comment added by DaggieBlanqx (talkcontribs) 15:34, 20 September 2018 (UTC)

@DaggieBlanqx: Hello! I understand your concern and frustration. Wikipedia does have criteria for inclusion of article subjects, based on what it calls "notability" as described at Wikipedia:Notability. I understand from your comments why you find him worth writing about. The gist of notability, though, is that Wikipedia doesn't make its own direct judgments as to whether someone's background and activities are worthy of note. Wikipedia is neutral, and doesn't have its own opinions on the value or importance of someone's acts. It looks to see if others have noted them to the extent that substantial coverage of them appear in reliable sources that are independent of the subject. See WP:Golden rule for a short summary of these requirements.
If you can identify qualifying sources with substantial coverage of Kariuki, you should bring them to our attention at the deletion discussion for consideration by all who participate.
As for my edits to the page, removing all the external links, see Wikipedia's linking guidelines, particularly the notes at WP:ELPOINTS. Wikipedia doesn't link an article to external information about everything mentioned in the article. Largoplazo (talk) 17:46, 20 September 2018 (UTC)
