Happy New Year, LlamaAl

Do not close AfD as speedy keep

You recently closed several AfDs as speedy keep because the nominator was blocked as a sockpuppet. They should have remained open per Wikipedia:Speedy keep rule #3 because "subsequent editors added substantive comments in good faith before the nominator's banned status was discovered". Bgwhite (talk) 22:20, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

What do you recommend me doing? --LlamaAl (talk) 22:24, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
I saw your message on the AfD talk page. So, I guess everything is ok again. As you saw from my question, I also didn't know what to do. Chalk it upto one more thing learned around here and 1.3 million things left to learn (atleast for me anyway). Bgwhite (talk) 22:51, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

Willdawg and archiving

Hey - I'll talk to him about archiving and how to set it up. Ultimately, it is up to him though. I've seen several very active editors that don't bother with archiving, just bulk delete every now and then and point to their history. To each their own, I guess. Ravensfire (talk) 22:03, 16 January 2013 (UTC)

Unlinking

Could you not use Twinkle to unlink redlinks for deleted articles?—Ryulong (琉竜) 15:22, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

Hello. Why? --LlamaAl (talk) 15:24, 25 January 2013 (UTC)
It's not necessary. Also in the case of speedy deleted pages (such as one I only discovered because of your unlinking), such deletions may be temporary.—Ryulong (琉竜) 16:26, 25 January 2013 (UTC)
OK. I will only unlink backlinks for articles which fail WP:NMMA. --LlamaAl (talk) 16:29, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for January 26

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Østre Porsgrunn Church, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Wooden church (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.

Hi. Those ALT hooks are very interesting. --LlamaAl (talk) 15:41, 27 January 2013 (UTC)

Edit Warring

If editors continue to revert to their preferred version they are likely to be blocked from editing. This isn't done to punish an editor, but to prevent the disruption caused by edit warring. In particular, editors should be aware of the three-revert rule, which says that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. While edit warring on Wikipedia is not acceptable in any amount, breaking the three-revert rule is very likely to lead to a block. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.198.201.221 (talk) 04:07, 27 January 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: User:Drmies/Asega

Hello LlamaAl. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of User:Drmies/Asega, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: WP:CSD#R2 is only for redirects from the mainspace. If Drmies doesn't want this, he can delete it himself. . Thank you. JohnCD (talk) 18:04, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

Your closure of Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Mistral Aviation

Hello LlamaAl, I greatly appreciate your great work for Wikipeia. Therefore, I need an clarification, because I'm really curious about why you closed this AfD debate as keep (as you did not give any reasons). Let me please explain: I had nominated Mistral Aviation per WP:CORP. During the three weeks the debate was open, there has not been a single opposite view on that respect. The whole discussion was about whether (as a scheduled airline), Mistral Aviation would deserve a stand-alone Wikipedia article nevertheless. And now, I'm standing here looking a bit confused. Obviously, you considered those arguments (which to the best of my knowledge are not backed by any Wikipedia guideline) as better-founded. Please understand that I do not want to criticize you, I'd rather understand what mistake I did in nominating this article for deletion in the first place, as obviously my arguments had not been valid. Cheers --FoxyOrange (talk) 08:11, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

By reading the arguments I realize it was my error. I have reverted all of my edits related to the article. Sorry for the inconvenience. Regards, LlamaAl (talk) 13:32, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
