Volareweb.com[edit]

Hi! Can't you make a redirect to Volare Airlines in that page? Thank you,- 84.250.25.157 10:25, 14 October 2007 (UTC).

Archived[edit]

Hi, I have archived your talk page and have added a talk header.

Hope this helps.

Thanks

--The-G-Unit-Boss 21:20, 15 June 2007 (UTC)

It helps :) If people don't see the previous talk page I look like less of a troll. I stand by my belief that more redirects would help wikipedia's search functionality though. Mathiastck 16:35, 18 June 2007 (UTC)

Hi hope you remember me[edit]

Hi Mathiastck, Hope you remember me, I am Harishankar from Smackall.com, mobile game developer. We met long ago when I was writing articles about multiplayer mobile games. Just wanted to say hi, and how are you these days.. codetiger 14:25, 11 July 2007 (UTC)

Hey :) I have to admit I don't remember you well, because truth be told I comment on a lot of articles about multiplayer mobile games, (it used to be my business). Heck you if you look at MySpace as an MMO then I'm still doing it ;) Feel free to email/IM me, and I encourage you to hit me up on my public profesional myspace page, www.myspace.com/mathiasbyproxy.

Redirect of Jbenchmark[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Jbenchmark, by Closedmouth (talk · contribs), another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Jbenchmark is a redirect to a non-existent page (CSD R1).

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Jbenchmark, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Feel free to contact the bot operator if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot, bearing in mind that this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion; it does not perform any nominations or deletions itself. --Android Mouse Bot 2 07:43, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

I dislike delete bots, this bot should be a redirect bot, since it was jut a case sensitivity error that resulted in a useless redirect. Mathiastck 08:56, 15 August 2007 (UTC)


Little context in Elementeo[edit]

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Elementeo, by another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Elementeo is very short providing little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles.

Comments or Feedback on Barcode Systems[edit]

Hi,

I am currently working to expand the stub that was about barcode systems here on Wikipedia. A big part of a barcode system are the mobile computers and software that runs on them. I noticed you had contributed to several articles related to mobile computers. If you had the time and would review and comment on the barcode systems article I'm am currently working on it would be greatly appreciated.

The Future of WP:40k[edit]

Hello. As a member of WP:40K I ask you to share your thoughts and opinions on a matter that I feel will shape the future of the project. Thanks. --Falcorian (talk) 06:22, 8 November 2007 (UTC)

40K[edit]

Thanks for the heads up on 40k. It sounds like this is the sort of thing that will affect a lot of other projects too. A generic response should probably be developed. Mathiastck 23:41, 9 November 2007 (UTC)

Sounds like a sound idea... Do you have any thoughts on how to start such a response? --Falcorian (talk) 02:19, 10 November 2007 (UTC)
I basically do this, have discussions like this on lots of different talk pages, or user talk pages :) Mathiastck 10:01, 11 November 2007 (UTC)

Operating context[edit]

Nuvola apps important yellow.svg

Another editor has added the "{{prod}}" template to the article Operating context, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but the editor doesn't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and has explained why in the article (see also Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not and Wikipedia:Notability). Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia or discuss the relevant issues at its talk page. If you remove the {{prod}} template, the article will not be deleted, but note that it may still be sent to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. BJBot (talk) 23:14, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

Thanks! I like this bot. Very friendly for new users. Mathiastck (talk) 23:41, 4 January 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for the note on my talk page. I have just looked at your improvements and they look fine to me. Just to explain why I put Prod on, I was patrolling the new pages and I was cheerfully putting speedy deletion tags on the nonsense pages when I found yours. On the one hand it didn't have enough content to justify an article and I couldn't really understand it. On the other hand it was about a real subject and I was unsure if you were going to come back and add more information. I didn't want it to sit and fester but I didn't want to speedy delete it unfairly either. Putting Prod on was my way to ensure that it either got improved within 5 days or it got deleted. I know this isn't what Prod is really meant for but it worked. ;-) --DanielRigal (talk) 23:48, 4 January 2008 (UTC)
I appreciate the insight into the process. I'm a strong inclusionist myself. I think wikipedia IS a directory, for example, which it explictiy states it is not. I consider an encyclopedia to be a subset of a directory though. I dislike that there is a burden of proof of notability on the person creating the article. People also seem to blur the line between "this article isn't good enough, so I'm deleting it", "this article isn't long enough, so I'm deleting it" and "this article isn't notable enough, so I'm deleting it."

CfD nomination of Category:Wireless[edit]

I have nominated Category:Wireless (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs) for merging into Category:Wireless communications (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs). Your opinions on the matter are welcome; please participate in the discussion by adding your comments at the discussion page. Thank you. Leo Laursen ( T ¦ C ) 08:38, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

Hi Mathiastck. Looking at eg. Category:Mobile telephony, it makes sense to me that it is in those 3 categories. I propose that Category:Wireless and Category:Mobile coexists at the same level. How do You like that idea? – Leo Laursen –   13:01, 8 February 2008 (UTC)
That's totally fine with me. I'd like to hear a few more voices weigh in. I found Motorola's glossary of terms, but it was pretty antiquated. To them Mobile Phone primarily meant car phone. The problem is that a lot of branding and marketing was thrown at each of these terms. I need to reread the current articles for wireless and mobile phone and compare them again. Cell phone now redirects to mobile phone. I think no matter what we do now there will be scores of articles, at least one for each countries major cell phone and telecomunications carriers or OEM's, that belong in category wireless, mobile, telecommunicatons, and likely even the mobile telephony page. I have a distaste for the term telephony, and for advanced telephony even more, but that's mainly a bias of mine. Mathiastck (talk) 19:10, 8 February 2008 (UTC)
Here is a good example. Should CTIA, or the Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association, (known for it's conventions), be listed in the Mobile, Wireless, or Cellular, category? Should it be a Trade show or a Convention? Mathiastck (talk) 21:02, 11 February 2008 (UTC)
I'd say Wireless, Category:Telecommunication conferences, Category:Telecommunications organizations, Category:Technology trade associations and Category:Organizations based in Washington, D.C. But I only just skimmed over the article; then again, more knowledge sometimes complicates things. – Leo Laursen –   11:15, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

Category:Mobile phone standard nominated for Cfm[edit]

Hi Mathias. I have nominated Category:Mobile phone standard for merge into Category:Mobile telephony standards. The name should be plural and there is no point in having two so similar categories. Maybe You prefer Category:Mobile phone standards, if so please join the discussion on Wikipedia:Categories for discussion/Log/2008 February 13. – Leo Laursen –   08:10, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

As an extension of Vegaswikians reverse merge proposal, I've proposed to merge Category:Mobile telephony into Category:Mobile. Wikipedia:Categories for discussion/Log/2008 February 14#Category:Mobile telephony. I trust this is in accordance with Your wishes. – Leo Laursen –   10:43, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

The Warhammer 40,000 project page has been updated!
  • Assessment tags have been added to the project banner.
  • New material, including transwiki instructions and an organizational chart, has been added to the main project page.
  • Please help us get the Warhammer 40K project back on track!

Project activity[edit]

This message is a test to check to see if members of the Warhammer 40K Project are still online, active and interested in helping the project. If you are no longer interested in the project all you need to do is...nothing! If you don't respond to this I'll take your name off the list and you'll never here from us again. If you're the proactive type you can remove the name yourself or talk to me and I'll do it.

If you are still interested in helping out the 40K project or otherwise still want to be listed there you can say so in response to this message on your talk page or on mine. Alternately you can add our new userbox ({{User WikiProject Warhammer 40,000}}) to your userpage and I'll take that as a response. The userpage doesn't automatically include people in a category of members yet, but it might in the future.

We've assessed most of the articles in the project on the Version 1.0 assessment scale (the table on the project page should take a few days to update) but we need to push to get the core articles in the project up to GA status. Thanks for all your help. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help the project along. Protonk (talk) 21:01, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

Creation of Android (operating system[edit]

Hey there, I saw you created Android (operating system about a month ago - just wondering what your intent or rationale was? I can't really think of a use for it, yet it has gotten some significant (albeit decreasingly so) viewage this month so I figured I'd ask before going to WP:RfD. ~ Amory (utc) 17:08, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

Um ok I just replied here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Redirects_for_discussion/Log/2010_January_2#Android_.28operating_system

but you really help prove my point. IT IS SEEING SIGNIFICANT TRAFFIC. I was probably lead there by the same method that those people got lead there, and we all expected to be lead to the page that I set up the redirect to go to. It sure felt like I was improving wikipedia.

Honestly I don't understand the "I can't think of a use so I nominate for deletion" mentality, I think that's why I'm an inclusionist. Mathiastck (talk) 11:03, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

GetJar[edit]

I was suprised to find few of the Android market company's/applications/websites listed on wikipedia. GetJar isn't up because it got locked... Mathiastck (talk) 23:11, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

Ok so I put a page up at User:Mathiastck/GetJar that is similar to the old page that got deleted, but seems much more encyclopedic to me. It's a work in progress. If GetJar was unprotected right now I wouldn't drop in this work in progress, I would just have GetJar redirect to List_of_digital_distribution_platforms_for_mobile_devices. Mathiastck (talk) 01:35, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

GetJar[edit]

The article was created twice; the first time as a blatant copy of the company's own webpage, the second time as shameless promotion. After the second deletion, User:Mjroots salted it as "Repeatedly recreated". I would not have done that, as I generally only salt after two or more recreations of deletion-worthy articles with the same name. You should talk to Mjroots. --Orange Mike | Talk 23:12, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

Thanks. He has a complicated talk page, but I think I asked him about GetJar in the fashion he prefers. Mathiastck (talk) 01:36, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
Hi, I'm prepared to unsalt the page if you would like. Are you proposing to create a new article which meets all relevant Wikipedia policies? I notice from the article's history that you have not previously been involved in editing the previous versions of the article. BTW, you did get your post in the correct section! Mjroots (talk) 10:07, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
I really don't know where I'm supposed to reply to this, so I'll double reply :)

I plan to make GetJar redirect to List_of_digital_distribution_platforms_for_mobile_devices. But that's really a temporary fallback position. Here is my draft for what I will replace the redirect with User:Mathiastck/GetJar. Mathiastck (talk) 18:46, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

To answer more plainly, yes I propose to create a new article that meets all relevant Wikipedia policies. I was not previously involved, but when I twittered that I was gonna have to try and create the page they did contact me. So the above draft is what any wiki editor should have done to the original article. Mind you I'm an inclusionist :-) I still need them to send me their original sources. Mathiastck (talk) 18:49, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
I've unsalted the article, you should be free to edit it now. Mjroots (talk) 18:57, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of GetJar[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles. See the Article Wizard.

Thank you.

A tag has been placed on GetJar requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article, which appears to be about a real person, individual animal(s), an organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content, does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable. If this is the first page that you have created, then you should read the guide to writing your first article.

If you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the article (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

Dirty po[edit]

The redirects at in order to prove a contradiction and for the purpose of argument fell, in my view, unequivocally under the scope of {{db-redirtypo}}: redirects on titles which are unlikely to be used as search terms. To create them purely for use in this talk page message looks to me like a misuse of Wikipedia. Did you really need links - both words are well enough understood anyway. And if you must have links, piping the links thus would actually have been less work than creating redirects! — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 18:28, 31 January 2010 (UTC)

They are unlikely to be used because people delete redirects of that kind. I had hoped they would have already existed. Mathiastck (talk) 20:04, 9 February 2010 (UTC)
Yeah I'm very much an Inclusionist. I'm not gonna fight consensus, but you'll find it hard to convince me that wikipedia wouldn't be better with a lot more redirects. What is the harm? I am in favor of deleting misleading redirects, but I don't think that is the case here. Mathiastck (talk) 20:46, 9 February 2010 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Walter Leslie Wilmshurst[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated article is Walter Leslie Wilmshurst. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also Wikipedia:Notability and "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Walter Leslie Wilmshurst. Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 01:05, 20 February 2010 (UTC)

Notability Project[edit]

Please see my response to your comment on WT:WPNN. What do you think? 66.102.205.233 (talk) 03:38, 7 June 2010 (UTC)

How can I let you know what I think you didn't login so I can't reply to your page or message you? Will you check back here? Mathiastck (talk) 18:01, 11 June 2010 (UTC)
Sorry, didn't see your comment here - just the one on the talk page which pretty much was where I expected to see a response anyways. Didn't really think about how this could be a problem, thanks for pointing that out. (BTW, my IP may have changed, it's assigned dynamically when I log into my ISP) 66.102.205.43 (talk) 04:16, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Kishonti Informatics[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Kishonti Informatics has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Tagged "unreferenced" for over two years, mostly market-fluff without actual evidence of notability. The claimed key technologies and products all appear to be redirects back to this same page.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{dated prod}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. DMacks (talk) 09:32, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

Third opinion with disruptive editor at Slavery in modern Africa[edit]

I have never request a 3rd opinion so I hope this works out as an alternative. There is an ip editor User talk:46.7.72.149 who I also believe goes by another ip 79.97.171.208. Has been requested not to add original research into the article and to use the talk page to discuss the edits. Without bringing any justification. I thought i made a break through as they continued to the talk Page, but still disrupted the page by engaging in an edit war. Stopping development on the poorly developed page. The WP:DE editor has undone several other non-related changes in the process of not getting the point on a single sentence which is a violation of NPOV. They are trying to single out Sudan as a peculiarity for slavery and its leadership allowing it to continue. Pure synthesis.No reference, no balance, but they are forcing it backinto the article in the name of background info. The lede already explains the illegality of slavery, and its continuation despite being illegal everywhere.--Halqh حَلَقَة הלכהሐላቃህ (talk) 08:43, 7 June 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of TestTrack Pro[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on TestTrack Pro requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about an organization or company, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Walter Görlitz (talk) 19:01, 23 September 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of TestTrack Pro[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article TestTrack Pro has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Non-notable company in Wikipedia terms. I fully understand that the product and company are well-respected in the world of testing and software development, but no third-party sources to back that up.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

AFD[edit]

Hello, I have recently come back to Wikipedia after a break and have been lurking around the AFD board in the last couple of days. I came across you in the list of members of Wikiproject Deletion which appears to be inactive. It seems to me that deletion is a bit overzealous in some cases where the article simply needs some improvements. My view is that the onus should be on the nominator/supporters of deletion to show that the article should be deleted, not the opposite way round it is now where someone can just say "not notable" without explaining why and still get the article deleted. Are there any other groups/projects which are involved in deletion discussions? I am still pretty new to wikipedia but keen to participate in something to improve promising starts before they get deleted, and a bit of guidance from a project would be good.Acb314 (talk) 10:51, 29 December 2013 (UTC)

I think I agree with your sentiment, but I don't have much guidance for you, I am not a very active editor. Basically all my contributions are to add missing redirects. Participating in AFD discussions is probably the best way to participate. As to changing wiki policy, that's pretty tough, but there are policy discussion pages, and the talk pages for policy pages are a pretty good option. I consider myself an Inclusionist, you may want to check out Deletionism_and_inclusionism_in_Wikipedia. Mathiastck (talk) 18:50, 30 December 2013 (UTC)

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process.

The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
