Request for Review[edit]

Hi, I'm Contrahunter. i wanted to publish the page Draft:Joe Paul (lyricist). on time you rejected my request. i am updated all news links. is there any questions to update this page ask me — Preceding unsigned comment added by Contrahunter (talkcontribs) 06:35, 6 October 2021 (UTC)

@Contrahunter: thanks for your message and for working on this. As I previously sent it to draft I think it would be helpful to have another editor review it, so I have added it to the queue of articles for creation. Someone will look at it fairly soon and give a view on whether it is ready to come back into mainspace. All the best Mccapra (talk) 09:05, 6 October 2021 (UTC)

Wrong label[edit]

Hi, I created Reza Tajbakhsh's article with a question from the previous deletion management. It has been two years since the previous poll, and the person is currently famous.Please remove the label--Modeling (talk) 11:40, 25 October 2021 (UTC)


Please be careful — there was no unreferenced content at Gazochak. TrangaBellam (talk) 21:45, 30 October 2021 (UTC)

@TrangaBellam: there was a single source, which is not sufficient to demonstrate notability. Mccapra (talk) 21:47, 30 October 2021 (UTC)
You were not adding a notability tag.
That being said, are you aware of WP:GEOLAND which presumes the notability of [p]opulated, legally recognized places? Or WP:PLACEOUTCOMES which says, Cities and villages anywhere in the world are generally kept, regardless of size or length of existence, as long as that existence can be verified through a reliable source. TrangaBellam (talk) 21:53, 30 October 2021 (UTC)
Yes, those refer to what happens at AfD, but thus article wasn’t at AfD. We use tags to encourage other editors to improve sourcing. Mccapra (talk) 22:09, 30 October 2021 (UTC)

You need to get your tags correct - see Template:One source.

This template should be used only for articles where there are some, but insufficient, inline citations to support the material currently in the article. Don't use this tag for articles that contain no unreferenced material, even if all the material is supported by a single citation.

London 176 meetup[edit]

Hello, I am very new to Wikipedia editing and saw on Wikimedia there is an event in London for which you have put your name down. Is it a formal event, and will it be easy to know who and where to go? Apologies if I have asked this in the wrong place.DannyHatcher (talk) 14:34, 7 November 2021 (UTC)

@DannyHatcher: hi thanks for your message. It would be great if you can join us. It’s not at all formal. The meeting is in a Wetherspoons pub which is very large. Some of us have lunch there. Our usual place is inside, directly in front of the main door. People come and go all afternoon depending on what else they’re doing so it’s like a long drop in session. We’re fairly easy to spot as we all look fairly nerdy (surprise) and some of us bring our computers. We talk about what we’re working on, discuss how to do things, and have the occasional moan. There are usually 6-12 people at any one time. Do you live in London and do you know how to get there? Mccapra (talk) 19:32, 7 November 2021 (UTC)
That sounds like I will fit in. I live in Eastbourne so London isn't too far away, and I added the event to my Gcal so it gave me a location. Assuming the location is correct I should be able to make my way there, and as I would be travelling up for the day I might as well make the most of it and stay as long as there is a conversation.DannyHatcher (talk) 19:39, 7 November 2021 (UTC)
@DannyHatcher: great {I’m from Seaford btw}. The Penderel Oak is about halfway between Holborn and Chancery Lane tube stations. Mccapra (talk) 19:49, 7 November 2021 (UTC)
@Mccapra: ah that is close. I will probably get the 10am train up and navigate my way there.DannyHatcher (talk) 20:08, 7 November 2021 (UTC)

Your suggestion[edit]

Hi. Recently, I've taken an article Dumero to AfD. But creator of the article closed the AfD themselves as keep. How should I deal with that, since it's the first time I encountered. Shall I take AfD second time or reopen it? Thank you. Htanaungg (talk) 14:06, 9 November 2021 (UTC)

@Htanaungg: hi that’s definitely an improper close, so I think your choices are either 1. tell an admin like Rosguill or Barkeep, or 2. Report it at deletion review. Good luck Mccapra (talk) 14:27, 9 November 2021 (UTC)
Another reviewer from the same nation with the creator has reverted their edit and reopened the discussion again, so I'll turn a blind eye this time, just giving a warning at their talk page. And, thank you for very useful advice. I now know how to deal with such stuff. 😊 Htanaungg (talk) 14:45, 9 November 2021 (UTC)


Hi, I noticed you nominated the article Holics (comedian) for deletion. I'm not against that, as you know why but I think you didn't sufficiently explain why it should be deleted and would be glad if you explain it to me. Also, per my understanding and from my point of view, I think the article should be kept since the sources provided are reliable sources, and the page could be improved. I would be glad if you remove the tag so that the page can be improved Thank you -- Robertjamal12 (talk) 09:17, 11 November 2021 (UTC)

  • @Robertjamal12: hi thanks for your message. Once a deletion discussion has started it runs for a week in most cases and the community evaluates the case for deletion. Articles require in depth coverage in multiple reliable sources and this article doesn’t have that. If you have other sources, you can add them while the discussion is going on. Thanks Mccapra (talk) 11:03, 11 November 2021 (UTC)
@Mccapra:, I clearly understand, The Article is a stub and more than one reliable source was cited in the article so I don't get the multiple reliable sources that the article you nominated for deletion lack, because more than two sources were cited and they are all reliable. Anyways, it's best we all reach a consensus in the discussion. Thank you -- Robertjamal12 (talk) 14:16, 11 November 2021 (UTC)

Burslem Port Trust[edit]

Hi, I strongly disagree with your posting a tag suggesting that notability is required for this topic. The Trust is a significant attempt to reopen a diused branch on the summit level of the Trent and Mersey Canal, and It has the support of many hundreds of volunteers, local residents and canal enthusiasts. The Burslem branch has a great historic heritage and relevance. The existing references are from a wide variety of sources. It would be a shame if, as a result of your tag, someone goes on to decide to delete the page, which is, in my view, already sufficiently encyclopaedic and "notable". Arrivisto (talk)

Bar Council of Jharkhand and Bar Council articles[edit]

Hi Mccapra. Thanks for reviewing this article and series of articles on Bar Council. India is a country with union of states and union territories. These states and union territories has to abide by the Constitution of India. Though the provisions are similar for each state, it varies on many principles as per Bar Council policies in each state. Also the Bar Council details for each of these states are different. Request you to guide me to get the series of articles on Bar Council for various states in main space as the information provided in each of these articles are of interest to general public. Thank you again. Gardenkur (talk) 02:45, 23 November 2021 (UTC)

Making a project[edit]

Hi @Mccapra: hope you are well. I believe we had a discussion about the sports wikiproject and I was wondering if you could share your thoughts about me making a wikiproject for sport science? All I can find is a category for sport science articles. The sports project is very stats in history focused. Thanks DannyHatcher (talk) 14:53, 23 November 2021 (UTC)

(talk page watcher) @DannyHatcher: I recall this being discussed at London nine days ago. Proposals for new WikiProjects should go through WP:COUNCIL. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 15:11, 23 November 2021 (UTC)
Hi @Redrose64:, yes it was briefly brought up. Thank you for sharing that link, I will do some more exploration and go through the appropriate channels. DannyHatcher (talk) 15:18, 23 November 2021 (UTC)
@DannyHatcher: hi I hope all is well. Trying to get a new WikiProject off the ground is a major undertaking. You’d need a solid body of volunteers willing to consistently put time into it, and probably some technical knowledge of how to create templates etc. that I certainly don’t have though many others do. My suggestion would be that rather than trying to start a whole WikiProject, you join WikiProject Health and fitness and start familiarizing yourself with the tasks a WikiProject involves - tagging articles, rating them, etc. once you’re up to speed with all of that and have got to know the other editors there a bit, you could try setting up a work group within the project, and if that attracts enough editors and finds or makes enough work for itself, then that group of editors may want to form an entire separate WikiProject. Everything in Wikipedia happens slowly and organically. Mccapra (talk) 04:50, 24 November 2021 (UTC)

Battle of Fornovo[edit]

Hello, I would like to point out that the page battle of Fornovo has been recently hijacked by a user, “Kansas Bear”, who rewrote it with a very clear bias. While most sources (including several he himself cited in the discussion held in the talk page) describe the outcome of the battle as either inconclusive, disputed, or at best a hard-fought French tactical victory which allowed Charles to save his army from encirclement and destruction, this user has presented it as a “French triumph”, with Italian troops being scattered and destroyed in a few minutes (whereas all sources state that the fighting lasted all day), omitting the fact that the entire loot and baggage train of the French army were captured by the Italian league and that Charles quietly withdrew at night during a truce that had been called to bury the dead, hardly the behaviour of someone who had “triumphed”. Additionally, this user has cherry-picked a single source claiming a ridiculously low casualty figure for the French (only 100 killed vs 3,500 on the Italian side) when all sources agree that, while French casualties were lower than those suffered by the Italians, were no less than one thousand in the most optimistic estimate (likewise, the high end estimates have been picked for the Italian stength, which ranged betwen 14,000 and 20,000 but is here presented as 20,000). This user has either ignored or removed all sources that don’t fit his narrative (that is, most), reverted all edits adding more sources and details, and refused, in the past, any discussion about the edit he has done. Can anything be done about it? Could you help in any way? Before you tell me to try to discuss with him or to report him for edit war (which describes his activity extremely well), I will tell you that I won’t, for a very simple reason: the former would be pointless – others have already tried discussing with him on the talk page, to no avail – and the latter as well, as I know well this kind of user, who has been disgracefully made into an admin for unexplainable reasons. He will keep reverting, secure the support of some other admin friend, game the rules to his own advantage, and avoid any discussion or change from his edits, instead having me banned. I know very well this will happen, and in that case, that will be the end of my activity here, for I am tired of seeing an individual being allowed to blatantly violate Wikipedia’s rules and make a travesty of history at his whim. --Jannizzero1 (talk) 22:55, 23 November 2021 (UTC)

@Jannizzero1: hi thanks for your note. This kind of problem is common on Wikipedia, and as you know, content disputes have to be decided by consensus. That’s an imperfect mechanism because consensus is determined largely by who shows up and shouts loudest. Consensus also changes over time. That’s why we say Wikipedia is based on reliable sources but isn’t itself a reliable source. I understand you don’t want to get into a stupid dispute - that’s good. I know you produce a lot of good articles so don’t take it personally or get frustrated, and I hope you recover your motivation to keep doing good work. Mccapra (talk) 21:12, 25 November 2021 (UTC)

Bar Council of Uttar Pradesh[edit]

Hi Mccapra. As suggested by you I added some more relevant references in this article and submitted for review to be moved to main space. Could you please review and approve. Thanks in advance. Gardenkur

Bar Council of Madhya Pradesh[edit]

Hi Mccapra. As suggested by you I added some more relevant references in this article and submitted for review to be moved to main space. Could you please review and approve. Thanks in advance. Gardenkur

@Gardenkur: I see you’ve added more sources about the relevant bar council to each article, which is good. However you haven’t addressed the fundamental problem which is that each article is full of references that have nothing to do with the subject at all. To support your article on Madhya Pradesh you have sources talking about Bihar, Tamil Nadu, Gujarat, Delhi etc. This isn’t acceptable because what you’re effectively saying is “because X happened in Delhi we can infer that it is also true of Madhya Pradesh’ and Wikipedia isn’t written that way. If you’re writing about Madhya Pradesh you may only use sources that talk about Madhya Pradesh, and you need to remove any material supported by references to bar councils in other states. Thanks Mccapra (talk) 03:57, 24 November 2021 (UTC)

Bar Council of Madhya Pradesh[edit]

Hi Mccapra. Got your feedback. The objective of Bar Council across all states in India is same. However there are minor variations made by council. As relevant references for these objectives are needed so I kept references from other states of India in case I didn't find it from same state. I also observed the same in other articles in Wikipedia where principle is universal. Kindly guide me if Iam wrong. Thanks in advance. Gardenkur (talk) 04:29, 24 November 2021 (UTC)

@Gardenkur: yes I’m afraid you are wrong. There hasn’t really anything else I can tell you. You can wait for your drafts to go through review where you may get a different view, but it’s clear to me that the articles as you’ve written them don’t belong in encyclopedia mainspace. Mccapra (talk) 04:33, 24 November 2021 (UTC)

Hi Mccapra. Thanks for your time and efforts. Before it gets reviewed I will clear those which are for other places. But hope it can stay in draft awaiting submission stage. Thanks again. Gardenkur (talk) 04:37, 24 November 2021 (UTC)

I do know it might be notable because unlike heads of government (since they had no differences), there are many differences between heads of state in monarchies and heads of state in republics and the topic of heads of state in republics has been discussed all over the media such as the internet and books. SpinnerLaserzthe2nd (talk) 00:23, 30 December 2021 (UTC)
My advice would be not to create it. There are relatively few monarchies so listing their heads of state makes sense. They don’t change often and the list is easy to keep up to date. Listing heads of state of republics will produce a giant list of 100+ heads of state, constantly changing and hard to maintain. And in any case, what’s really the point of it? Who wants to find this specific sub-categorisation of heads of state? What encyclopedic purpose does such a list serve? Recent AfD debates have deleted a lot of cross-categorisation lists of political leaders, and the general view is that they don’t belong on Wikipedia. If you’re interested in building lists you might find that there isn’t yet a list for prime ministers of every country. If the list is small it should just be included in the main article about that country’s prime ministership, but if the list is too long for that, a separate list article is fine.

Highway Performance Monitoring System[edit]

Given that the text I wrote was quoted from the Federal High Way Administration HPMS page, I'm not sure a more reliable source exists. Congress passes a law, and tell FHWA to write associated regs, FHWA writes them, they get posted in the Federal Record, and are considered part of Federal Administrative law. FHWA then posts a summary to their webpage, which is what I cited. Theblindsage (talk) 19:18, 31 December 2021 (UTC)


Do you believe CSI (franchise) quotes mostly reliable independet sources? I may also quote similar trash for the SOKO, but why?Xx236 (talk) 12:53, 5 January 2022 (UTC) SOKO München does not quote any source. Will you transfer it to Draft space? Xx236 (talk) 12:57, 5 January 2022 (UTC) I have not created the page 'recently', but almost two months ago.Xx236 (talk) 12:59, 5 January 2022 (UTC) Solo für Sudmann is hardly a draft since 2011. Xx236 (talk) 13:00, 5 January 2022 (UTC)

@Xx236: Thanks for your message. As a new page reviewer I look at new articles as they appear in the new pages queue. I’m aware that there is plenty of other unsourced or poorly-sourced rubbish on Wikipedia but my task is to prevent more of it, not to deal with all the existing weak articles first. Adding reliable independent sources to a newly created article isn’t “trash”, it’s a fundamental of a reliable encyclopedia. But since you’re a new page reviewer yourself, you’re no doubt aware of all of this already. Mccapra (talk) 00:36, 7 January 2022 (UTC)

Bar Council Articles[edit]

Hello Mccapra. Hope you are doing well. It has been some weeks since I amended below Bar Council articles as suggested by you. Since they are topics with wide interests and to help clean the queue from the draft space, I take this opportunity to request you to kindly approve them for main space.

1. Bar Council of Tamilnadu and Pondicherry.

2. Bar Council of Delhi.

3. Bar Council of Bihar.

4. Bar Council of Himachal Pradesh.

5. Bar Council of Madhya Pradesh.

6. Bar Council of Kerala.

7. Bar Council of West Bengal.

8. Bar Council of Uttar Pradesh.

9. Bar Council of Uttarakhand

Kindly let me know in case of any suggestions to make them better. Thanks in advance. Gardenkur (talk) 05:55, 7 January 2022 (UTC)

  • @Gardenkur: hi thanks for working on these. I’ve moved the Tamil Nadu article back to mainspace but before I do any more there are a couple of problems still to resolve to do with copyright. First, the articles you created are all variations in a single model text, meaning that they’re largely copied from one to another. You can do that but you have to make clear where that text comes from. To do this you need to go to the talk page of each of your articles and add a text like “the text of this article reuses material from….. and then link to the very first article you published in the bar council series. That way there is a proper attribution of the text.
The second problem is that the Delhi article carries a copyright violation tag on it. At the moment I can’t access the link it contains and I can’t get the Wikipedia copyright detector tool to load properly either. Until I can check this out I’m not going to move any more drafts. Obviously if one of them is a copyright violation they all are because of the way you created them, so I need to be sure they aren't before proceeding. All the best Mccapra (talk) 06:30, 7 January 2022 (UTC)

Hello Mccapra. Thanks a lot for your time and efforts in suggesting the above method. Will do as you have guided and revert back to you. However, need to check on first article on the series of Bar Council Articles. However will add link from the best ones which got assessed. Hope that works. Have a nice day. Gardenkur (talk) 07:13, 7 January 2022 (UTC)

Hi Mccapra. As guided by you, I have added text to Bar Council of Bihar. If you feel this is the correct, will proceed and add to the rest. Also regarding Bar Council of Delhi, the mistake happened inadvertently in one particular place which I later checked and corrected it. However you can review and approve. Thanking for the guidance till now. Have a nice day. Gardenkur (talk) 11:08, 7 January 2022 (UTC)

hi your text is fine to use in the other article talk pages and the copyvio check had come up clean. Good work. Mccapra (talk) 21:51, 7 January 2022 (UTC)

Hello Mccapra, I sincerely thank you for your time and efforts for approving all articles for main space. I wish you Belated New Year Greetings too and hope to continue association with you in improving Wikipedia forum. Thanks. Gardenkur (talk) 02:36, 8 January 2022 (UTC)

Thanks and best wishes to you too. Mccapra (talk) 08:32, 8 January 2022 (UTC)
