Very warm welcome back[edit]

Why did you delete a page I created that has called "Croissant Coworking" that has substantial references from Techcrunch, The New York Times, Forbes, Startup Grind, and Fast Company? Burton37

Please accept a very very strong welcome back - highly likely the usual suspects at the noticeboard wouldnt appreciate your status as the persistent and very hard working tagging and organising person in the first 5 years of everything - maintenance editors are like something from the archaeology - very few left and even less who appreciate the nuances.

The look of the place is a bit strange - please feel free to query any of it on wiki or off - cheers JarrahTree 08:09, 8 October 2017 (UTC)

I do my best not to get involved in the petty side of things here. The place hasn't changed that much from what I can tell, although I admit not digging much beyond the surface as yet. I'm one who can usually find my own way about. Thanks for the welcome back. It has been a while. -- Longhair\talk 08:13, 8 October 2017 (UTC)
Telling me (been a while) - I have become a grandfather in the time since I last remember your regular editing :) JarrahTree 08:17, 8 October 2017 (UTC)
Did you use another username back then, or is my mindslip just confirmation that I too am getting old and forgetful? :D -- Longhair\talk 08:20, 8 October 2017 (UTC)
Originally Vcxlor then SatuSuro now JarrahTree - a strange and very weird journey - nah its me not you JarrahTree 08:23, 8 October 2017 (UTC)
SatuSuro I remember, now that does take me back. You were probably in the thick of that ArbCom crap back then also eh? I don't remember anything awkward between us :D -- Longhair\talk 08:24, 8 October 2017 (UTC)
Never. period. ever been in arbcom issues. avoided like plaque and plague JarrahTree 08:27, 8 October 2017 (UTC)
I had that one event at ArbCom, up against that conspiracy theorist twit taking offence at my crime articles. All in the past now. He got booted, and here I am. I do remember you, in good ways, it'll all come back to me eventually why and how. -- Longhair\talk 08:29, 8 October 2017 (UTC)
Point is since you stopped regular editing some years back I have know of more people who have left regular editing than have those who have started and becomes regulars - some of the halls are empty and echoey - some others cluttered with chooks with parts of their anatomy missing JarrahTree 08:32, 8 October 2017 (UTC)
It gets like that here some days. I've seen plenty come and go. Shown many the exit myself haha. -- Longhair\talk 08:37, 8 October 2017 (UTC)
Sfunny - in part of alledged real life I spend inordinate hours poring over [1] - all 34 volumes or the 10k individuals - interesting there a few who might be sufficiently notable for arts - and their careers are well spelt out on trove - but hey only one life, no PA or research assistant to help out :( JarrahTree 09:29, 8 October 2017 (UTC)
You know how things operate here by now mate. The reward for a job well done is another job. You're still here, so something must be falling into place. -- Longhair\talk 10:06, 8 October 2017 (UTC)
Welcome back! To catch up on a few things you may want to check out Wikipedia:Administrators' newsletter and its back issues. There have been a few changes to the Wikipedia:Protection policy (esp. extended-confirmed level) - including the currently running WP:ACTRIAL. What is probably unsurprising, WP:ADMINBACKLOG is still around and in need of mopping :) — xaosflux Talk 15:13, 8 October 2017 (UTC)
Yeah. I'll read over that. Last time here I did get a little overprotective and copped a mention. Backlogs are the norm here aren't they? Thanks again. I'll do what I can. -- Longhair\talk 15:15, 8 October 2017 (UTC)
Ha, backlogs are as old as the encyclopedia :) Also, multi-factor authentication is now available for admins, see WP:2FA and Wikipedia:Simple 2FA. Please note: 2FA does not help if you forget your password. At WP:BN there was also some references to WP:COMMIT - you may want to look in to this; it is never guaranteed to work - but is a possibility for account recovery. Happy editing, — xaosflux Talk 15:18, 8 October 2017 (UTC)
I'm using a pretty stable email address now. What's happened prior isn't likely to happen again. Surprised myself I remembered that password though... senility hasn't gotten me just yet. -- Longhair\talk 15:28, 8 October 2017 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Hi Longhair. We've never interacted before, but I would like to welcome back an old time editor. :) I hope you soon get comfortable with the new things. Welcome back. —usernamekiran(talk) 07:52, 13 October 2017 (UTC)

Thanks ![edit]

Thanks for the warm welcome Longhair ! At first I thought this is an auto generated welcome message but later I read your mention about the Goregaon page edit. I must say, you admins are very actively involved. I will go through all the links provided by you. Looking forward to contributing meaningful content to this huge encyclopaedia. Thanks ! Mediabuzz (talk) 14:07, 3 November 2017 (UTC)


While I'd like to thank you for deleting this draft, it was also under discussion at Wikipedia:Redirects for discussion/Log/2017 October 9#Draft:Church. I am not asking for the redirect to be recovered, but rather the relevant discussion be closed as Speedy Delete as well. Thank you. jd22292 (Jalen D. Folf) (talk) 17:26, 10 October 2017 (UTC)

Done. A classic example of discussion for the sake of it if I've ever seen one. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. -- Longhair\talk 21:21, 10 October 2017 (UTC)


Since you felt this was enough to go G11, May want to have a look at the draft also. I initially tagged both it and the existing article (now at NEXUS (non-profit)) but removed them since I figured I could probably mercilessly hack the mainspace version down to a stub that would avoid G11. Whatever floats your boat. GMGtalk 17:30, 23 October 2017 (UTC)

I deleted the user page as I also blocked the user account for a username violation. I'll leave the draft there for now in case the editor wants to recover anything, saves me undeleting down the track should they ask. If they don't resurface I'll keep an eye on it with a view to delete in a day or so. Thanks. -- Longhair\talk 17:36, 23 October 2017 (UTC)
I believe it's slightly weirder than that. I probably should have explained better. Looks like the COI account was trying to move the mainspace article because the org changed names. Instead they ended up copypasting the mainspace article to the draft under the new name, and trying to redirect the mainspace article as an XNR to the draft. So technically the draft is a copyvio since it doesn't properly attribute the mainspace article. GMGtalk 17:38, 23 October 2017 (UTC)
Deleted. -- Longhair\talk 17:45, 23 October 2017 (UTC)

close examine[edit]

of edits shows deliberate over-doing of cats for promotion - should get jumped on for spam and a few other issues - ta JarrahTree 10:06, 24 October 2017 (UTC)

Are you saying it's a tourism related thing, whereby they're aiming to throw the article into a wider spotlight via overcategorisation? -- Longhair\talk 10:14, 24 October 2017 (UTC)
exactly smells like something out of a compton mckenzie comic novel about rival islands to the west of scotland - mackerelislands JarrahTree 10:18, 24 October 2017 (UTC)
There's far too many categories and articles for me to monitor, and I know you watch them anyway. Drop me a note if it continues, I can see what's happening. You watch, I'll bite as required. Cheers. -- Longhair\talk 10:30, 24 October 2017 (UTC)
They're asking for their block to be reviewed. I'll let another uninvolved admin handle that. I've already poked my nose in and my block stands for 3RR. -- Longhair\talk 10:36, 24 October 2017 (UTC)
I have left my paranoid evaluation - I am now no longer there either - thats it for the night ! cheers JarrahTree 10:41, 24 October 2017 (UTC)

Ittefaq Plot Edit[edit]

Hi! You reversed my plot edit of Ittefaq (2017). The film has only released this Friday and some unknown source has revealed the complete story including the suspense of the film instead of adding just the synopsis. For a thriller film, this is a major revelation as the spoiler is out there for people to read even before they watch the film. This is causing damage to the business of the film as it reveals more than required. Since the page is semi protected, I'd need you help in correcting the same. Thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Paramparaa (talkcontribs) 11:39, 5 November 2017 (UTC)

Deletion of International Society for Stereology & Image Analysis[edit]

Dear Editor, I am surprised that you have deleted the page International Society for Stereology & Image Analysis. I strongly believe that it does not lack of asserted importance because International Society for Stereology & Image Analysis is respectful, non-profit organization, established decades ago and should be introduced to Wikipedia readers. I do not have any conflict of interest. I am the member of the society, but not involved in the management in any way. Members are scientists from all over the world. I will be happy to further explain the issue or modify the article. --Mimag343 (talk) 12:34, 5 November 2017 (UTC)

Dear Editor, I will include references (scientific and popular articles) about the society, which will demonstrate the notability beyond primary sources Please, do restore the article and move it into my personal draft space.--Mimag343 (talk) 12:55, 5 November 2017 (UTC)
You'll find a restored copy of your deleted article at Draft:International Society for Stereology & Image Analysis. Happy to help. -- Longhair\talk 13:06, 5 November 2017 (UTC)

Lillian Axe [edit]

Why did you delete Lillian Axe (album) after I restored it? It was only a SOFT delete, which would usually default to "No consensus", especially if one person objected and restored the article? Please {{ping}} me when you respond. --Jax 0677 (talk) 16:52, 6 November 2017 (UTC)

@Jax_0677 The article was listed for speedy deletion on November 5, contains one external link to AllMusic as a reference, has sat in that state since your restoration over a month prior, and to be honest, I'd probably have deleted it anyway under Wikipedia:Criteria_for_speedy_deletion#A9, but instead left intact the summary from the editor who filed the CSD who requested a technical deletion, which this is not. And now that you bring my attention to it, I'm happy to restore it, as I see I have deleted it in error as the album appears to be from a musical group of some notability. It happens rarely, but I guess I saw one too many non-notable music related articles during my deletion run last night and gave this one an undeserving flick. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. Article restored. -- Longhair\talk 17:28, 6 November 2017 (UTC)
@Jax 0677: I am confused. The AfD outcome was delete but the article wasn't deleted, as far as I can tell - there's nothing in the log to indicate it - hence my A9. To object to the speedy deletion / PROD don't you need to provide a reason? It may be that there's one in the talk page and it hasn't been restored. As a non-admin, I can't see it. Longhair, the album being by a notable group doesn't confer any notability on the album... Curb Safe Charmer (talk) 17:50, 6 November 2017 (UTC)
I'll be the first to admit I've just returned after some 6 or more years away, and it seems albums are now under the same microscope schools have been under for some time now. I've restored the article, having read up on the band in question, and being that they have in the past 6 years or so been inducted into a local state based Hall of Fame, that makes them notable in my view. I will also admit to not being across the entire album notability spectrum of debate in my short time back on deck but will read over it in the next few days and get back up to speed. Things change fast when you're away from the coalface for some time. For the article to be restored, it must have been deleted at some stage before my recent deletion took place -- Longhair\talk 17:54, 6 November 2017 (UTC)
To answer your question on previous deletions, it was deleted per the silent AfD under the previous article name of Lillian Axe (Lillian Axe Album). See below...

Orphaned non-free image File:Bulla dairy logo.jpg[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:Bulla dairy logo.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in section F5 of the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 18:03, 6 November 2017 (UTC)

User:Josefwintzent Libot[edit]

Hi there, I sent you a ping on this user's talk page, however just in case you missed it I wanted to reach out to you here. I was checking to see if you would be OK with the removal of their block, as Libot is certainly a viable last name. RickinBaltimore (talk) 18:58, 7 November 2017 (UTC)

Deletion of 'Pentridge: Voices From The Other Side[edit]

Dear Longhair, I'm new to all this. Just trying to get a page up for a new book. The book is published, the book exists, the book is valuable. How can I make a wikipedia page without it being considered 'promotion' G11? Please reverse the page's deletion and work with me to make it acceptable.

Blocked IP indef?[edit]

Did you really meant to block this IP indef? ~ GB fan 11:29, 21 November 2017 (UTC)

I'll take a look. An indef block on an ip is not something I'd perform often, but it's quite hectic tonight on the vandal front, I may have erred. BRB. -- Longhair\talk 11:31, 21 November 2017 (UTC)
My mistake, adjusted to a 12 hour block. Thanks for pointing that one out. They're hard at it this evening eh? -- Longhair\talk 11:32, 21 November 2017 (UTC)

Blocking a Userpage[edit]

Hey there, I think there is something missing on User:Dventproductions. I saw your post on the user's talk page, saying you blocked it, but I think you forgot to do that. :P. Let me know if I mistook something. Thanks! Simranpreet singh (talk) 14:15, 21 November 2017 (UTC)

I left the content there in case the user wanted it. They're only blocked for a username violation and are able to continue editing under a new account. I'll check with them later and see what's up with that. Cheers. -- Longhair\talk 20:16, 21 November 2017 (UTC)
You can view the users block log here. They're most definitely blocked. -- Longhair\talk 20:45, 21 November 2017 (UTC)

All fixed. After a quick read over the content, it's been deleted as advertising and promotional content. -- Longhair\talk 20:54, 21 November 2017 (UTC)

Please stop reverting my corrections[edit]

The information on the Hoopa, California page is wrong. Stop keeping me from correcting false information about my town Nosip1567 (talk) 07:16, 23 November 2017 (UTC)

You are removing content backed by reliable sources. That's the end of the story. If the content is wrong, then provide sources rather than edit warring. -- Longhair\talk 07:18, 23 November 2017 (UTC)

My report[edit]

I have reported an editor for edit warring in WP:AN/3. But you seem to ignore it, why is that? TheAmazingPeanuts (talk) 04:53, 23 November 2017 (UTC)

It's nothing personal. I rarely read those noticeboards to be honest, and you may have seen me active there earlier this evening when I blocked an edit war participant I came across on my travels elsewhere. I popped in to inform those who frequent the noticeboard the matter had been dealt with.
Those noticeboards are visible to administrators community wide, and any administrator is able to deal with issues listed there. I'm not at the keyboard the entire time, and as your message arrived I was living my real life, as fractured between reality and Wikipedia as it is. I'm happy to look into any outstanding potential blocks you have listed. I come and go here, and if I'm around, I'll help, if not, the noticeboards are the right place to raise your concerns. If I think your request for assistance is valid and they've not already been dealt with, I'm more than happy to help. Lemme see what's it's all about. BRB. -- Longhair\talk 11:35, 23 November 2017 (UTC)
Your matter was dealt with one minute before I got there. Check here. They're blocked. Sorry I couldn't help, but you did the right thing by listing it where you did. There's over 1,000 administrators at Wikipedia, I'm just one of them :D -- Longhair\talk 11:38, 23 November 2017 (UTC)
