Request to Reinstate Bentley Systems Wikipedia article, please[edit]

Hi Mbisanz,

On July 7, 2016, you had deleted the Bentley Systems Wikipedia article and I would like to ask you to review my request for reinstating the page on the talk page for the deleted article located here (I didn't want to junk up your personal Talk page :-).

Thank you for your time! I'm new to Wikipedia so I apologize if I didn't follow procedures properly. I just wanted to be sure that you did see my talk post for the deleted page.

There is a restored copy of the article at User:MBouch16/Bentley Systems. Add the new sources you found to the article, and then submit it to WP:AFC, where it will be reviewed for reinstatement. MBisanz talk 13:01, 2 September 2016 (UTC)

--MBisanz Thank you so much! I very much appreciate the quick response :-). I do have a question for you that I hope you don't mind answering. On the WP:AFC page, do I need to click on "Click here to Create an article Now" button and rebuild the article? Or, is there a trick to editing the restored copy that you copied over to my user account and then submitting that? I'm fine with rebuilding it if need be. Sorry, I tried figuring it out myself. There's a lot to learn here and I want to be careful not to do anything I am not supposed to do and that I do this correctly. Thanks!

When it's ready at User:MBouch16/Bentley Systems, let me know and I'll move things around so the submission works at WP:AFC. MBisanz talk 21:16, 2 September 2016 (UTC)
--MBisanz Got it. Thank you! --MBouch16 (talk) 17:32, 6 September 2016 (UTC)

Hi, --MBisanz.

I have another question for you...I don't want to change the article too much as not to break any conflict of interest rules. One of the reasons the page was deleted was for issues with notability and in the talk section of the deleted page, I listed many, many external references (200+) to Bentley systems, however, I wanted to list these references for the person creating the new article to use for their research and not add them all to the article myself thereby junking up the article. I think the page would look pretty hideous if I listed all the references I had (200+) saying.

So, my question is, do I update the page you copied over to me with the bare minimum to get it back up again, and then add my huge list of references in the talk page for the person creating the article to reference for notability and let them add what they feel is important to the article? Or should I submit the whole shebang (200+ references and all) and let the person reviewing the article trim the fat? Thanks!

So, I saved a recent version of hidden page you restored for me here to show you what I mean: User:MBouch16/Bentley Systems. Pay special notice to section 5 labeled "For The Wikipedia Admin Creating this article - PLEASE READ". Is something like this acceptable for an article submission? I don't expect the article to have the items listed this way, I just wanted to give the article writer references for their research.

Please do not submit yet as I am not finished. I just wanted to see if I am on the right track. Thank you!

I would leave out the Section 5 reference; maybe put it on the talk page. I also would not include all 200 citations that reference the company. I would focus on citations that discuss the company in detail, like "Bentley Systems at 30". A three paragraph article with 10 solid citations is better than a five paragraph article with a list of 100 references. MBisanz talk 18:03, 11 September 2016 (UTC)
Hi, --MBisanz. Thank you. This helps tremendously. — Preceding unsigned comment added by MBouch16 (talkcontribs) 11:58, 12 September 2016 (UTC)

--MBisanz Hi, I have completed the article for Bentley Systems located at User:MBouch16/Bentley Systems. Could you please assist me with getting this submitted to WP:AFC like you mentioned in one of your comments above? Please let me know if there is anything else that you need from me. I would like to get this page in the queue for reinstatement as soon as possible as I understand that this may take a while to get reviewed. Thank you so much for all your help! --MBouch16 (talk) 19:23, 14 September 2016 (UTC)

--Hi MBisanz, I haven't heard back as I am sure you are busy. Is there anything I can do to get this page at least submitted into the queue? I'm happy to do it. I'm just not sure what to do. Thank you! --MBouch16 (talk) 17:35, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

--MBisanz Hi! Hope you are doing well. Just checking in on my two previous requests to get your help on submitting User:MBouch16/Bentley Systems to WP:AFC? Help, please? Thanks! --MBouch16 (talk) 15:25, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

I submitted it for review at Draft:Bentley Systems. You may continue editing it there. MBisanz talk 15:42, 23 September 2016 (UTC)
Thank you!! --MBouch16 (talk) 15:56, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

--MBisanz Hi, again. I received notification from SwisterTwister talk that the article you assisted me with submitting was rejected. I am in total confusion at this point. I spent weeks gathering external references and citations and worked with you (thank you, btw) to make sure I stayed on track. I am just not understanding why the Bentley Systems article that has been on Wikipedia since 2004 suddenly gets deleted after 12 years? I supplied many verifiable external references to prove notability for everything that is currently on the page (which wasn't changed much) and it still got rejected. I am not understanding how a $600+ million company who has been referenced in books and news articles is not considered notable. I'm in doubt that the citations and references I supplied were actually reviewed. Honestly, if none of the references that I provided don't provide notability, then I am at a total loss here.

I would like to take the next step and request a formal appeal to reinstate the Bentley Systems article page. Also, I have been informed that SwisterTwister talk or yourself is WP:INVOLVED by @PamD:. You can see the discussion here where she left a comment on my request for advice on this AFC submission. I would like to kindly ask that whatever the next step is, that SwisterTwister talk or yourself (if that's who @PamD: referenced) is not part of the review process due to the fact that either of you may be WP:INVOLVED. I would like this page reviewed by another admin that has never been involved with this article as I feel that something is not right here.

Could you please advise on how I may move forward with the appeal process if you don't have any other options for me at this time? Again, many thanks for your assistance. I'm just trying my best here to do what's right and get the Bentley Systems article back up. Thank you. --MBouch16 (talk) 16:57, 26 September 2016 (UTC)

Admin on Commons[edit]

Hi, little user. You're an admin on Commons, right? You may want to block User:Kalleballeskallekalle, recently blocked as a vandalism-only account with an offensive username by my little sockmaster. They've edited Commons too, not in a good way. Also, welcome in pocket at all times! Cordially, bishzilla ROARR!! 23:13, 16 September 2016 (UTC).

Request to restore Tea Jazz Wikipedia article[edit]

-- Hi MBisanz, Trust you are doing good. I just noticed you had a page - Tea Jazz I created deleted. Tea Jazz is among the new crop of artistes currently doing well. He has featured quite a number of them and he has also performed at major events. He is also verified on Twitter which goes to show his level of activeness. He just released a new song featuring Yung6ix and the song has been gaining massive airplays on radio station locally here in Nigeria. I will appreciate if a reconsideration is granted and his page restored. Thank youBuzzy anslem (talk) 12:57, 21 September 2016 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, MBisanz. This message is intended to notify administrators of important changes to the protection policy.

Extended confirmed protection (also known as "30/500 protection") is a new level of page protection that only allows edits from accounts at least 30 days old and with 500 edits. The automatically assigned "extended confirmed" user right was created for this purpose. The protection level was created following this community discussion with the primary intention of enforcing various arbitration remedies that prohibited editors under the "30 days/500 edits" threshold to edit certain topic areas.

In July and August 2016, a request for comment established consensus for community use of the new protection level. Administrators are authorized to apply extended confirmed protection to combat any form of disruption (e.g. vandalism, sock puppetry, edit warring, etc.) on any topic, subject to the following conditions:

  • Extended confirmed protection may only be used in cases where semi-protection has proven ineffective. It should not be used as a first resort.
  • A bot will post a notification at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard of each use. MusikBot currently does this by updating a report, which is transcluded onto the noticeboard.
Please review the protection policy carefully before using this new level of protection on pages. Thank you.
This message was sent to the administrators' mass message list. To opt-out of future messages, please remove yourself from the list. 17:47, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

Request for Bot re-approval[edit]

Heya. After a few years break from Wikipedia I finally have some time to do projects I've wanted to do. The first one on my list is my bot for WP:LINKROT. I have already gotten approval for this, but because I was away (and in that time the tool server was taken down) the bot stopped working and was marked inactive. Could I get that bot flag back? --Tim1357 talk|poke 04:50, 25 September 2016 (UTC)
