New article Cybersecurity Strategy[edit]

I was surprised to see you deleted this article for the reason that it is a duplicate of Computer Security! This is ludicrous. That is like saying the Mona Lisa (1517) is a duplicate of Lady with an Ermine (1490) by Leonardo da Vinci. Please reinstate the article, and try come up with a better reason, like your fellows who use notability as a good argument. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:59, 4 December 2015 (UTC)

Capability Maturity Model Cybersecurity nominated for deletion[edit]

I can't find the nomination for deletion for Capability Maturity Model Cybersecurity. The link in your notice at the top of that page goes to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Capability Maturity Model Integration instead. (By the way I voted Keep there.) I reviewed a draft of one of the first of these cybersecurity model articles back in May, and tried my best to discourage the editor from continuing.

Not Quite Sure How To Use This Page But...[edit]

Thanks, Mike Rosoft. Thanks for marking the proposed Cẫrdinẳl.Ṓ'Cybḝriẫ page a [(Joke)]. I love Wikipedia and it's a pleasure to .meet. some of the people who make it, or prevent it happening. I have been cracking up all week over obscure encyclopaedist's in-humour. Wikipedia is very different from the inside. I am still reading submerged articles and finding my feet. I have used my first week here to go nuts and just find out what happens. I hope my editing is achieving the boldness required by Wikipedia and I am becoming increasingly aware of the problem of style. I am trying to develop rational ways of working within the system, so as not to overburden the infrastructure and I will re-jig my user page, which is becoming a bit unwieldy.Thanks.Cẫrdinẳl.Ṓ'CybḝriẫCẫrdinẳl.Ṓ'Cybḝriẫ 11:34, 13 December 2015 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by KardinalCypher (talkcontribs) P.S.

Why was Teagy deleted?[edit]

Dear Mike Rosoft

I am Lennie the maker of the page Teagy. You see I am just a kid and I worked very hard on making my wikipedia page. It meant alot to me. My mum and dad loved it and thought it was very good. I would really like it if you undid your deletion! :(

Thank You For Reading This! --Beastboy2004 (talk) 13:59, 3 January 2016 (UTC)

  • @Beastboy2004: I am afraid I can't do that. Not everything gets to have an article on Wikipedia; if I made an article about myself, it would have been deleted as well. Wikipedia has certain inclusion ("notability") guidelines; the primary criterion is coverage in reliable third-party sources (like newspapers, books, scholarly papers, and the like). (See the guideline for musicians and identifying reliable sources.)

    I wanted to recover the deleted article and either e-mail it to you, or temporarily move it to your use space so that you can find an alternate outlet for it. I am afraid I am unable to do this, either; the deleted revisions have been removed from public view, and not even (the majority of) administrators can access it. I can only speculate on the reason, but see Wikipedia:Protecting children's privacy and Wikipedia:Guidance for younger editors. (I am unable to provide any more information; if you want to pursue the issue further, then have your parents contact the Wikipedia mailing list - see Wikipedia:Contact us.) - Mike Rosoft (talk) 14:54, 3 January 2016 (UTC)

Ok. Thank you for understanding. I am making the page again so I can take a photo of it and save it just in case it get's deleted again. :) --Beastboy2004 (talk) 15:02, 3 January 2016 (UTC)

mahika sharma[edit]

Hii.. with all respect why is my contribution Mahika Sharma has been getting deleted again and again. One should google her before doing so. I request you to upload her wiki page again. She have all profesnl links. Thanks.. waiting for a posetive feedback Popopo222 (talk) 07:54, 23 January 2016 (UTC)

  • @Popopo222: The article was a nearly identical re-creation after Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Mahika sharma and Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Mahika Sharma; such pages may be speedily deleted without a discussion. Plus, it was promotional in nature. Language like "she solved many problems which were out of reach from government hands" (with regards to the supposed reference supporting the claim: last time I looked, rhinos were still being poached) and "people use to refer her as light of their life at this time who do so" (?) and "terrorists at Assam are afraid of her name and her fighting skills" (!) is not appropriate for an encyclopedic article. I am going to protect the page from further re-creation; if you disagree with the deletion, you can challenge it at deletion review. - Mike Rosoft (talk) 10:18, 23 January 2016 (UTC)

I would not love to chalenge you better will ask you help me out with the article please sir — Preceding unsigned comment added by Popopo222 (talkcontribs)

I think that if I removed all the inappropriate material, there would be sparsely anything left. One of the users in the previous deletion debate expressed an opinion that (paraphrased) if Wikipedia is to have an article about her, the best thing would be to delete it and start again from the scratch; I fully agree with this evaluation.

You can create a draft of the article at Draft:Mahika Sharma, or in your user space (such as User:Popopo222/Mahika Sharma). If you choose to give the article another try, please have a look at the inclusion (notability) guidelines for people. Coverage in reliable third-party sources is the primary criterion; also, the references must directly support the claims made in the article (see the policy of verifiability); you can't add your own personal interpretations. - Mike Rosoft (talk) 13:38, 23 January 2016 (UTC)

Turing Robotic Industries, Liquidmorphium, and Liquidmorphium Turing Phone[edit]

Hi, thx for your attention. Haven't finished yet. It is fresh and TRI Corp. is a start-up (like Jolla was a time ago, also nominated and deleted, finally defended, you can see history for Jolla article) so more sources will appear around April as that time is anounced launching the Liquidmorphium Turing phone. Note now mentioned sources has appeared some hours ago. The liquidmorphium as material of nanotechnology will be a problem in aspect of WPs as it is a technological secret, at last now it is. The 3rd source for 2 others I will add, however it will not be anything shining and nothing special. Still edited and under construction - yet next 24hrs, if you let me so. However curently existing sources are not impressive. Counter vandalism measures always welcome are ;) BTW: I have constant problem with I-don't-know-who adding adware-links to Microsoft products or technologies or anything about/around Microsoft even if completely unrelated to the article, like article about Linux related subjects. I evaluate this as intended vandalism toward to wiki-link everything in Wikipedia to Microsoft articles. I would like to pay your attention to this as this is my time wasting sabotage and really like an well-organised gang/mafia advertising Microsoft everywhere, and even if cleaned it is hard-rewriten again and again. Microsoft can afford to pay employees for putting their advertisments everywhere but I can't spend always time to clean it as then I have less and less time on e.g. looking for sources among other things in my life. Please treat this is as formal complaint against "Microsft everywhere advertisement" which is messing everywhere and is unstopable(?). Wikipedia slowly turns into the one biggest advertisement of Microsoft, and when cleaned it is coming back again and agin. please advice me what can I do to defend against this? As this is organised and systematic action of leaving Microsoft trash-links everywhere. Help against this sickness is very needed, and I think not only by me. Anyway thx for your help and attention. Ocexyz (talk) 00:14, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

  • @Ocexyz: In that case, I suspect that it may be too early for you to create an article about the company and its products. (As I like to say, Wikipedia is meant to be compendium of existing knowledge, not a means of something known.) I'll give you a bit of time to finish the articles, but please note that coverage in reliable third-party sources is the primary inclusion criterion. (I have used Google to look for the name of the company; while there is a fair number of hits, quite a few of them look like press releases; such articles do not constitute independent coverage.)

    You say that some articles are being disrupted by adding links to Microsoft products. Could you name such articles (here or at the administrators' noticeboard) so that I or other users can have a look at it? - Mike Rosoft (talk) 06:18, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

@Mike Rosoft: Yes, I know WP:TOOSOON, and I think it is not that case but a question of time spent on digging for serious or rather to say really added value/knowledge in quoted source then add any source complying formal WPs requirements. At this time all 3 have 3rd source added, however it is not everything but noteable, hence under construction still.
About Microsoft involved/related vandalism. See here this link shows example I have removed yesterday. Jolla is independent entity established long time before the Elop effect in the Nokia, and years before fact of selling (rather grabbing IMHO) Nokia's R&D Dept to Microsoft. Definitely and absolutely it is not related anyhow with MS. This is marketing practices known from selling washing powder: In commercial, enywhere but especially in TV, must be mentioned name of product or producer/distributor. This is mass selling goods. There were serious and scientific researches that proved following. It doesn't meter if one concentrate on commercial or not. It is enough that product or company name will be noted even without aware understanding, as this leave slowly disappearing trace in one's memory, everyone's hearing or watching. This cause that going shoping that product or products of that advertised producer are noted and bought first then any others. Simply because it is recognised as something already known. One, you, already have seen it recently somewhere. Researches proved that turnover without that commercials decreases about 40% and doesn't meter how good or poor quality the good is. This "memory" must be sustained/renewed by repeating commercials/adverts otherwise the name will be forgotten. That is why in TV commercials of washing powder are repeated, with name of product or company. You are to remember it. But commercials in tv are paid. Here in Wikipedia Microsoft involved/related or simply employed in that particular aim individuals patrols wikipedia for money and leave as in above mentioned link. AND what is worse: any critical point of view or facts that shows Microsoft or Microsoft related products/companies in any different then positive light are excluded with comment "this is not encyclopedic" or similar. Even when it is well sourced with 3rd party source. In contrary to this there are many sites that pretends unrelated to Microsoft which are in fact related or paid by Microsoft that are created ONLY in aim to provide sources looking like 3rd party - however this is hard to prove, but it happened. Here you have example I had linkt to one that was clearly stated "edit new or existing wikipedia content" or very similat to this, that was Microsoft evangelist without "technical". Sorry can't find it at this moment to prove it. But I observe this from many years and there are no place or mechanism (that I know about) to report it. I claim wikipedia is used as a kind of blog to place commercials/adverts for Microsoft marketing. And also Microsoft marketing goals justify censoring Wikipedia content from reliably sourced facts that are not comfortable for Microsoft. eg. there is no "Elop effect" article, however "Osborn effect" is common case, but steven Elop is coowner of Microsft as 7th private owner of Microsoft papers in the World. Elop effect has been removed from wikipedia, period. In Lumia phones there are no facts about problems and (sourced ones 3rd party ones!) as they were wiped, not comfortable for Microsoft marketing. Eg.: that first 4 Lumia models were using Windows in BETA phase, so not a finished product, so buyer was betatester for Microsoft for free and was paying for not finished product WITHOUT being informed or aware about this. Source: one day Microsoft has made a statement they have finished betatests of Windows in Lumias, made 3-4 years after first model launch. Primary source but reliable as made upon law requirements for the Wall Street. Wiped. You will not find even a word about this. This is constant problem with Microsoft advertisement and marketing propagated in Wikipedia, just as washing powder in TV. Problem is also that I am one and Microsoft evangelists payed for editting wikipedia are plenty. Before I have no chance to say about this to admins, if you have any advice please let me know. please also let other in admins community to know there is such a problem. Wikipedia loose neutral point of view when Microsoft is involved and is evangelising wikipedia.
Now I can look for more sources ;) have a nice day. Ocexyz (talk) 11:31, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
  • @Ocexyz: I see that you are making general accusations with little to back it up. I see that the article Elop effect has been deleted as a neologism without third-party references, and redirected to Stephen Elop, where his (mis-)statement is covered. But thanks for bringing the page to my attention; I have fixed the redirect to section.

    As for the Microsoft Lumia, I have no time at the moment to check the entire history of the article to find out exactly at what point was the claim added or removed. In any case, who made the statement? When did he make it? Did some third-party newspaper or website cover it? (If not, then we have nothing but your say-so; see the policy of verifiability.) - Mike Rosoft (talk) 06:40, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

@Mike Rosoft: Thx for your attention and time again. My opinion is general describes last few years of what was happening around articles related directly or indirectly with big player as Microsoft, so more then a dozen - and note well again: I am a single person only. Microsoft hire full time or a part time a small army of focused only on advertising Microsoft and remove anything critical or not purely positive for Microsoft and related entities/products/brands. Even a Windows related will be a full bucket. eg. in Wikipedia maintains FULL list of Microsoft products which s not possible to create in that shape w/o internal data from company provided by employees I think, especially when most are unsourced at all. You can try some of following List of Microsoft software List of mergers and acquisitions by Microsoft where are 3rd party sources? Note there are none a word about acquisition of Nokia's R&D dept, or other companies that felt down in consequence of cooperation and agreement with Microsoft in mobile market and then in part or in the whole were overtaken (so in form of acquisition exactly!) Compare source here: BTW: just writing here I have realised that was used as source and I have used this as a source, but now looking for in wikipedia there is not such a source. It has disappeared from Wikipedia space, IMHO: because it is not a positive approach for Microsoft and related subjects, so was a subject to be eliminated. Continuing examples List of Microsoft operating systems List of Microsoft topics And if you look more careful it is visible there that most are primary sourced w/o 3rd party or even from party strictly related and/or reporting to Microsoft but still are - while in the same time eg. I have to look for hopeless but formally 3rd party source in my contributions or it can be expressdeletion. OK, MS also have right to have place in wikip, but problem starts when in organised manner wikipedia is smoothly censored and manipulated for marketing purposes of one company like Microsoft in long time and perspective. And any critical parts in articles are eliminated. i don't have ATM examples and it is waste of time also for you to look back for this. Those are small thing which in total creates overusing of trust and already have exceeded a critical mass overwhelming anything else but positive for Microsoft statements, just like in chain reaction. While some of them are true, eliminating neutral and critical ones is against NeutralPoint of view and encyclopaedic objectivity. eg. Sweets are liked by children and sugar provides calories so energy for young body - this is true. But eliminating critical/neutral: constant overuse of sweets hence sugar in them cause obesity and dental problems and in consequence may cause a diabetes - this is loosing neutrality and objectivity, as hides significant part of available knowledge from perspective/overview of reader/user . And this is pure evil I am talking about. Elop effect is good example. This is our times version of osborne effect, but it does not exists as separate article. Why? It was eliminated. While Osborne effect is not an Osborne (name) in this particular case Adam Osborne, it still exists as separate article even when mentioned in Adam Osborne. But Microsoft supporters, in my opinion only of course as I can't source it or prove it, is protecting his co-owner and employee Mr elop. Even in Elop article there is nothing about elop effect which caused Nokia lost its position of worldwide number 1 mobile vendor and mobile business was overtaken by MS for "a broken penny". Elop effect is communication effect, but not only. Elop effect is about uncontrolled management of person from outside the company at cost of managed company - a statement you mentioned is only exemplification. This is fake and falsification in wikipedia. Well this is my point and it can be disputable but anyway: I disagree Elop effect not to have separate article and hiding it behind the statement as this is hiding knowledge about the case. Osborne effect is historical but elop effect determines global situation in the particular market of mobile industry - even if we do not agree what exactly it is, what extent, is it in scale of company or whole Finnish economy, or weather it is combination of Osborne effect and Ratner effect or not - whatever: this is notable, 3rd sourced and significant for a number of populations (not only people). Note well: if you know nothing about Elop effect you are misinformed that this is a statement only, but this is big fake IMHO, statement is element of policy and important are consequences. However this minimalisation is convininet for some persons interested in. Next: Your point about Lumia is exactly how it works, also. Nobody of us have time to trace all those small problems, so they are left and sedimented in Wikipedia and with time they turns to be a truth to believed as this is what people do. There are not any critics about Lumia, anyone Lumia. It was but was, was sourced 3rd party but was eliminated. So people repeats and use this is good faith, only positive statements. So the marketing goal of only positive POV around Microsoft and related is achieved, isn't it? Yes, I understand verifiability you have mentioned. But also just like you, I can't waste my time. So if I will note again problem I will let you know. Or if I will have time to dig through past contributions will try to provide proves, what is less probable. Point is that when an edition is removed again and again every wikipedian & contributor leave it after 3rd or 5th time or edit war starts and in such a case MS supporter are working together to overwhelm not positive parts also using WPs very precisely. I understand WPs are to be followed and I agree with this. If you have noted a problem that something important is against essential Wikipedia values and foundations and have understood routines leading to lost objectivity and neutrality, what note well also mean luck of consensus and reasonable compromise, then a big stop forward has been done. I don't want to propagate any conspiracy theories etc. or activity against a particular entity, however I have noted my point of view about this problem is most frequently accused for this, what ends discussion. And in the meanwhile problem exists and growths, in consequence trust in Wikipedia suffers as people see the content can be one thing and reality just another, just "slightly different" and that "small something missed" can make a big difference. Just like in marketing they used to do. And something to add to view a wider picture Criticism of Microsoft, note that this is argument that there is criticism about Microsoft. Doubts are that it is allowed only in this one and only article and in any other articles in Wikipedia are allowed only positive statements about Microsoft and related. So in fact any "non-worshipping Microsoft" is under control and can be eliminated, so works as censoring practices or monopolising information/knowledge about a particular area around and about Microsoft and related subjects. And this seems to be illegitimate nonWikipediaPolicy enforced in whole Wikipedia - against WP:FIVEPILLARS . Note also this is very effective marketing strategy targeted to young or unaware about a subject and looking OBJECTIVE and NEUTRAL info in Wikipedia, and as they believe an article is such, they assume it contains quite whole picture, and when there is nothing critical or nothing neutral POV then it must be something only positive. So let's take it, Wikipedia has just confirmed this is OK - while this can be not quite true or not the whole picture, in consequence not a WP:NPOV , am I right? And this is against essentials and foundations of idea of encyclopaedia as such. Resuming: I will let you know next time I will find sth, now we will not make any more progress about this I am afraid, unfortunately. Think it over, let me know if you think I have missed anything or I ought to pay attention on something or should learn something or anything else you think is important. C U next time, that was a pleasure to meet you. If I would like you to do anything that would be not to dig in history as we are in practice unable to reverse all things, but I would like you to point this to others (admins?) under consideration and have this in mind in future admining Wikipedia. Only positive approach and positive thinking can give positive results I think. :) Ocexyz (talk) 09:46, 5 February 2016 (UTC)
@Mike Rosoft: >>> Now elop effect is linked to "Burning Platform" memo section in Elop article - this is falsification and fake. It is related, but it is not the same. See Osborne effect and Adam Osborne for comparison as Elop efffect can be considered a combined Osborne effect and Ratner effect. I leave it here as you mentioned you want to link it as it is now, but it is not a consensus and against WP:FIVEPILLARS IMHO, what does not mean I am the only one who is right all the time.

If you want to complain about my conduct, you can go to administrators' noticeboard, and if that doesn't resolve the issue, the next step may be a request for comments or, in extreme cases, arbitration. - Mike Rosoft (talk) 19:50, 14 February 2016 (UTC)

Review of CEM[edit]

Why was the Clean Energy Ministerial deleted? It did not violate copy write laws, it was not self promoting, it was not organization run, I am confused about the justification.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Jennleonard24 (talkcontribs)

The T word[edit]

Hi. I wonder if the source for the claim you restored meets WP:RS, especially considering the BLPishness of the topic. (I'm not really here or I'd ask my non-evil twin to look into it with his usual thoroughness and care.) Thanks! Rivertorch's Evil Twin (talk) 02:13, 14 March 2016 (UTC)

  • @Rivertorch: Hmm, the reference is this, which uses this as a source. I have reverted the removal mostly because the edit summary directly contradicts the reference's claim; feel free to remove it again. - Mike Rosoft (talk) 06:17, 14 March 2016 (UTC)

EDITING JO HARMAN — Preceding unsigned comment added by Nomoreheroesanymore (talkcontribs) 15:05, 24 March 2016 (UTC) You unfortunately changed an article Jo Harman singer back to a previous version which is written by her manager and boyfriend Mark Ede aka Doomclause and Markede please see talk page !( if you checked the refs you'd notice that they don't support the statements made and are puffery . In fact I have tried to make several requests previously to have this article checked for neutrality etc but it never seems to happen . Instead people randomly seem to change something back to a version often containing many irrelevant links , for no logical reason I can see and take no notice of what is written on the talk page . I didn't think it was acceptable for a manager to write a wikipedia article about a client?girlfriend ? Maybe consider looking more carefully before you help someone incapable of writing an objective or even vaguely truthful article who continues to do this ad nauseum . If you doubt this I suggest you check earlier versions of Doomclause written articles . — Preceding unsigned comment added by Nomoreheroesanymore (talkcontribs) 14:49, 24 March 2016 (UTC)

Refutation of deletion[edit]

First read my outline for wikipedia; how it should be run: Yes, they have rules, but something more is in order; namely, gradation of rank. For obvious reasons, this will keep good taste and ensure the commonwealth of intellectuals; and their authority, not public opinion

Objectivity, in the regard to my writing, horrible choice of words, especially since I'm train in the school of thought of Nietzsche. However, I would like to note that I will reciprocate your politeness, in criticism. I did not invent the term Nietzsche did; I did synthesize from reading of Nietzsche, it is true, an interpretation; but unfortunately life is an assumption, and an.interpretation, for you that is. I'm guessing you've trained in the school of a moralist; isn't it time for you to move on?; to rise above the previous things, realize where all human, too human? That really to be a free-spirit is to be trained in moral prejedice? So no I didn't invent the term, but in my defense it seems you have your own fictions. Wikipedia needs taste and interpretation from the greatest minds, for it to evolve beyond its previous conception, don't you agree?even if you think I'm not capable my intention is a premise build on is it not? So please edit my writings and consider it.

As for my self promotion, it was unintended; I was citing my sources which was my website and fredrick Nietzsches book. As for it being reliable third party source is this not stringent? Should it not be judged before it is deem thus? America is broken stable, slow decaying country, whilst I hold you responsible for falling prey to its disillusionment, for not thinking correctly; It seems you have solid mental capacities and can learn a less feeble understanding? What do you think? I will be interested in a reply MassiveLizard (talk) 05:58, 28 April 2016 (UTC)

  • @MassiveLizard: From what I have gathered from your website, Nietzsche didn't really use the word attemptist/attemptism. He used the word "attempter", in the plain meaning "somebody who attempts at something". And if you say otherwise, then without a third-party reference the claim is just your personal interpretation.

    Both the policy of verifiability and against original research/synthesis are among the core policies of Wikipedia. While we might keep an unreferenced article about an otherwise encyclopedic topic around for a while (until it is finished and until references can be found), your article wasn't in such a situation - it constituted blatant original synthesis (and you admitted that much).

    The bottom line is: Wikipedia won't have an article about you or your philosophy, unless they have been covered by reliable third-party sources. It's that simple. And if you disagree with the deletion, you can challenge it at deletion review. - Mike Rosoft (talk) 20:29, 28 April 2016 (UTC) I personally like you, perhaps through talk pages we can correspond? You seem little prone to moral prejudice or as you call your "Objective" and atheist!! Refreshing to talk to athiest, my isolation prevents from meeting many.

Now to respond: once the website becomes more popular, will you consider a change of opinion? And I would like you to write an article on me-- as your much talented with tools of wikipedia---as for self-promotion, do you have suggestions?

Revision about RC4WD's deletion[edit]

Hello, I have RC4WD article would like to post on Wikipedia as English version. It was marked as promotional. I also change delete information related to promotional. And hope that I can have a chance to post it again.

In 2005, RC4WD was able to distribute nearly 800 types of parts for other companies such as Thundertech Racing, JPS, New Era Models, Imex, Defiance Racing, RC Alloy, Vertigo. In 2007, the RC4WD headquarters moved to a small warehouse in San Jose, California. In July 2010, the company was granted a license for the first product, The Dick Cepek wheels "Mud Country" 1.9” Tires.

I apologize-- I hope we continue corresponding(but in my defense, another thought has come --i don't known you personally, therefore sorry--) you poked a broken rib-- that I'm trying to nurture at the moment. Again you may reciprocate my anger, but also-- I aplogized MassiveLizard (talk) 10:39, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

(talk page watcher) Thank you for apologizing for your earlier edits. For now, lets keep the discussion on my talk page and give Mike Rosoft a break for a bit. This way, you can discuss your concerns with someone (me) who is not directly involved with the dispute, and someone who can look into your concerns objectively and with a neutral level of involvement. Thanks :-) ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 11:05, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

Thank you mike[edit]

I'm told I shouldnt talk to you, but this will brief and a complement: thank you for understanding! I like you more and will denounce any offense I've have taken. If you want to talk privately without others just follow me on any social media, such as, Twitter or my email you can from well my talk page-- please I've only been editing wiki for two days and don't know a whole lot about you or any of it.

I'm not angry at you or.for deleting my articles: I was a little fearful that they aren't saved-- but I know better now.

I've talked to higher ranking administrator; and has given advice( I have aspergers and sometimes don't know when to stop). I'm glad you responded in a friendly manner as you always have: now realize, I thought you were a little rude to me--.but thays just my interpretation. Now again I know better. Thank you for taking time to respond and surely will be excited for another response!!! MassiveLizard (talk) 06:21, 2 May 2016 (UTC)

(talk page watcher) I just wanted to commend you on your efforts to set things right with Mike Rosoft, as well as try to move on and make positive contributions. Thank you for listening to the advice given to you, and for making a well-mannered and honest attempt to make peace with others. :-) ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 06:23, 2 May 2016 (UTC)

Why saracsm-- seems a little cruel to someone not used to using wiki?


Q.E.D MassiveLizard (talk) 18:22, 2 May 2016 (UTC)

  • @MassiveLizard: And here I was thinking that the issue were closed. But let me explain it to you: you have posted a nonsensical list of grievances (which, as I have said, amounted to saying that you didn't like me and disagreed with my deletion of your articles). Then you went to complain at the page of the arbitration committee, demanding that I be removed as an administrator, and that you be granted the power instead. Seriously, did you even expect that your demand would be granted? (Not to mention the various insults and threats you posted to my talk page.)

    I apologize if I seemed too harsh to you, but given the situation, I think that my response was entirely appropriate. - Mike Rosoft (talk) 05:45, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

Well, you need to understand:

I do need wrap up the matter, but thanks for explaining! No I didn't think I would have you removed but my attempt was to scare you and try and taint your name through popularity and sociAl media I could easily do this, I could even, run a Google ad having them complain right to your page-- I can assure if you would of deleted this account I'd go to library and creat a new one. I'm dangerous, hear me, but according to guidelines and good faith, I have to believe you will do the right thing-- even if I disagree! I'm not threatening you; I'm sorry and ashamed of doing this.My parents are wealthy Americans and if thought it benefit the world would help me run that ad! As for twitter I'm getting followers and are.listening to me-- I cherish women and have been selecting them because they can be very emotional.and passionate.

As for them being, nonsensical I assure you they are not! You just trained any field-- that I know of, that is. As for you job "idk" & "idc". I denounce that I will do those things but be polite and you won't hear from me again, unless you violate or irritate me! Again, it be behoove of you to help me-- because I will not tolerate any rudeness, again from you. Or any brash remarks sarcasm or anything!! Hear me! Or else we will be gladiators in a.ring and.May the best athlete win!? I am not insulting you and I'm not this must be understood; I'm just telling how it is, between us. If you want to arm yourself: go to, but if unprepared it will hurt you!? This contest of.ours we be a war of the wit and may the best man win. I assure you I'm even more intelligent than I give my audience the impression--.and willing to burn, at this moment, before I lose to you. Again this a big apology?! And something to think about( if you haven't read my bio: or anything I've said i have aspergers.and sometimes can't see social ques clearly); this matter won't be complete ly, in opinion, ever be resolved in till we can reach a mutual understanding-- in a way I am donald trump( wanting destroy political norms). So let me ask a few questions: do you agree with: the idea, the will to power. Or does it hurt your democratic values!? Again if even cared to read anything I wrote,.without prejudiced and opened your mjnd: you mind even enjoy my unconventional, evil thoughts? You say your an athiest, but you say your a skeptic: which leads me to believe you just surf across common opinion? You love democracy: which is suspicious, perhaps the Czech republic is better than the USA maybe, so I can't understand you; thus,.you've barely dented your human potential( I'm only 17 and I have to critique someone who is 30)and mind and probably don't appreciate.woman or their values. I shouldn't have to say this I'm not angry at you but we need to understand each other to move on, agreed? These aren't criticism, but understanding?! You are most likely superstitious and will consider ghosts; you may develop mental illnesses-- but then your cheerfully optimistic aren't you? You pride yourself on being objective yet you have yet to realize you are optimistic? You probably appreciate darwin, but haven't read Nietzsche? You also read to much wiki?

Why are you proud on being the vandalism unit: your a plumber cleaning others filth and faucets? Making sure people like me don't disrupt you and question authority and even challenge, why? Don't you want wiki to evolve beyond it previous intent?

You fail to understand that evil happy people exist and criticize America or even your own country, why? Because you like it? Or maybe more likely, because you think the world is unjust and evil; why aren't you Christian,.you should be Buddhist, or something; but then you say your a hard core skeptic and athiest? Why? You must have had trauma of some kid in your life. I noticed you don't have picture on your page maybe your unhappy with your appearence. Maybe not? You probably don't have social media why? Again because you hate your self. But love the great despised because they are the great lovers, why? Because all human suffering has been the only impetus to improve society? You ain't wealthy, like me? Why because you talk too much but I'm going to offend you and get blocked on wiki

Again, again I'm sorry for offenses but I believe we need to.understand each other MassiveLizard (talk) 11:34, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

"But let me explain it to you": this brash and offensive, against.the good faith.policy-- if taken to an extreme? Why aren't you placing good faith in me and researching me!Like Mahwah told me: I'm having to put my foot down and express my concern for you and your well-being; but enough is enough,.you have irritated me, continued berate me,.unconsciously or subconsciously leave mean and cruel remarks. You don't adhere to the 5 pillars of wikipedia.and especially not once have you tried to direct me right . "But let me explain it to you", now; you have failed even attempt to understand me! Why is openness and friendliness key to understanding me?

"And here I was thinking that the issue were closed." Another sarcastic joke, you must really hate me? "Idk" why because, despite having-- insulted you once-- you just told me you would "accepted my apology" not I forgive you? Or tell me how you feel another attempt of not saying whats on your mind. Have you not heard of the "truthful lie"? No, you habent, well, another example of not understanding me or attempting to!? Why do you continue to enofrce your skepticism upon other people-- why is learning a priority to you--.I said I'd embaress, myself if it set.thing right? I gave you the option to reciprocate my anger,.but this beyond my original intent: for some reason you just want to hurl implied accusations at me? "Idk", why?

Why are you skeptical of emotion?

Why do I hate Nietzsche?

Why do you prefer old biblical philosopher from ancient Greece? Why haven't you moved.on?

Why did you say "you don't seem trained in any school of thought of philosophy" in the reverse, you just are from a different country from me, metaphorically that is?

If you continue to insult me "Idk" what to do? I guess ill just have to report you to higher authority? In wiki, or something? Without being rude and using your archaic, superstitious 'objectivity'.

QED( Quod erat dendomstrandum): I promised to oswah.that I wouldn't hurl accusations without evidence, but whoooo, your going over-board-- just like I am now. MassiveLizard (talk) 12:12, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

MassiveLizard (talk) 12:16, 3 May 2016 (UTC) Austin response Wasnt appropriate it was rude another simple violation of a.good faith policy: if you just nce and wiki accountants.deleted I will be pleased MassiveLizard (talk) 12:16, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

  • As I have said, I thought that the issue were closed. You have crossed the line, you apologized, no hard feelings. But then you deliberately reopened it by complaining about what I had said, and when I responded, you reacted with passive-aggressive behavior ("I could have created a Google ad asking others to spam your talk page", "If you block me, I'll create another account in a public library") and more insults and insinuations about my character and beliefs. Don't you think that this makes your apology seem a bit hollow?

    And why I didn't immediately respond to your messages? For example: because I have a job (and probably, I am also in a different time zone). - Mike Rosoft (talk) 18:34, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

Are you KIDDING me?[edit]

If you're so mad at me for my "unsufficient" article for the movie Kings then maybe YOU should fill it in. I don't need your ass getting mad at me for just filling in what is already known.

Oh, and: God is real. Ghosts are real. All lives matter. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Drewsal16 (talkcontribs) 05:06, 9 July 2016 (UTC)

  • @Drewsal16: I have used Google to search for the "Kings" movie, but didn't find anything relevant. (I found the 2007 movie, which already has an article, and also Exodus: Gods and Kings.) It's difficult to expand the article when, as I have said, it doesn't contain sufficient information to even identify its subject. Is "Kings" even the real and complete name of the movie?

    Likewise, there wasn't any use in letting such an article to remain on Wikipedia indefinitely. Without any real content or references, the article was nothing but a rumor that a movie of the name "Kings" may be in production. Wikipedia is not a rumor mill; see also the policy of verifiability. (Had I not deleted the article, some other administrator would, because it obviously meets the speedy deletion criterion WP:CSD#A1. An article which meets the speedy deletion criteria may be deleted by any administrator upon discovery.)

    I considered moving the article to your user space as a draft so that you could work on it, but I decided against it; in any case I have reproduced the entire contents of the deleted article on your talk page, and any user can create an article draft in his user space (such as User:Drewsal16/Kings (upcoming film)), or in the draft namespace (Draft:Kings (upcoming film)).

Deletion of the Metal Band Ballsdeep ?[edit]

Hi I understand that the main reason for the deletion was that the first couple of Paragraphs were copied from the Bands press pack but all other content was original content that was written free hand as I created the page, I will happily remove and or rewrite all the 'press pack' material if that will help to get the page reinstated. I understand that you have to do these things quickly and may not have time to read the entire article but if you could just take a moment you will see that 95% of the content is original and not easily found as with the first couple of paragraphs. if you have any tips to help me get this page back then any advice would be appreciated.

Also my intention as to get the page up and continue to add content such as links and sources as I am very new to this and didn't want to throw a load of content which looks messy and disorganised as I am still learning how to add particular things.

  • @FATangel: I have reviewed the deleted article, but even those parts that weren't copied from the band's "press pack" were rather promotional in nature. (Wikipedia does not serve for bands or other groups to write about themselves; in other words, it is meant to be an encyclopedia, which is a compendium of existing knowledge, not a means to make something known.)

    See the inclusion/notability guidelines; coverage in reliable third-party sources is the primary criterion. I make no judgement on whether or not the band meets the criteria, but if Wikipedia is to have an article about it, it would be better to start again from the scratch. (If you don't have your version of the article saved and want it either as a base of the new version of the article, or to find an alternate outlet for it, please tell me and I'll e-mail it to you.) - Mike Rosoft (talk) 05:00, 23 July 2016 (UTC)

thank you for the feedback, i will read through those pages you have outlined and start again, if you could email the content to me that would be very much appreciated FATangel (talk) 17:17, 23 July 2016 (UTC)

  • @FATangel: I have my e-mail published on my user page (User:Mike Rosoft), though in a slightly obfuscated form. Just send me an e-mail and I'll send the article text to you. (I wasn't able to e-mail you through the Wikipedia interface - apparently, you either didn't provide an e-mail address when registering, or didn't set up your account to allow receiving e-mail from other users.) - Mike Rosoft (talk) 21:25, 23 July 2016 (UTC)

Czech alexandrine[edit]

Thank You for reviewing my article about Czech alexandrine. I think that - in the first place - French alexandrine and English alexandrine should be saparated. The first one is fully syllabic 12(6+6) and the second if fully accentual. They are completely diffrent methods of writing verse. The Czech alexandrine stand between them. Polish alexandrine (thirteener) is close to the French one. I would like to read an article about Spanish alexandrine (alejandrino) on Wikipedia. I don't write more, because I know You are a man of hard work. Thanks once again (Anagram16 (talk) 11:53, 27 July 2016 (UTC))

Christopher Biggins (just an explanation of my edits)[edit]

Hello, I added that "he was kicked off of Celebrity Big Brother after saying bisexuals are responsible for AIDS" under the Personal life section (even though someone else already added related sentences to the Television section) because in the Personal life section, there are already some sentences on Biggins' public beliefs on LGBT people/rights. (talk) 08:35, 7 August 2016 (UTC)

(so it's like putting all of his major opinions on the LGBT topic in one section) (talk) 08:36, 7 August 2016 (UTC)
  • @ Well, I don't think that it's necessary for the article to cover the incident twice - it is already mentioned in the "Television" section. - Mike Rosoft (talk) 08:38, 7 August 2016 (UTC)
The Television section only says "On 28 July 2016, Biggins entered the Celebrity Big Brother house to participate in its eighteenth series. He was chosen by the public to take part in the first secret mission.[4] He was removed from the house on Day 9 due to making offensive comments.[5] [6][7][8]" and does not mention his comments about AIDS being caused by bisexuals. The Personal life section had his previous beliefs about LGBT people (i.e. he is anti-gay marriage) so it would easily fit to mention his now-public beliefs about bisexuals (part of the LGBT).

  • @Malcolmbourke: You can't re-create the article Malcosia; at least, not on Wikipedia. It was obviously not factual, or even serious. An empire located near the island of Malta that nobody knows about? Older than the recorded human history? With an area larger than the entirety of the Earth's surface?

Deletion of article[edit]

You've deleted the article As a summary you wrote

No claim of importance or significance (WP:CSD#A7) - online game; promotional. Only sourced to the author's website and twitter.

The article was sourced to the official website and author's twitter, but not limited to it. It was also sourced to a YouTube gameplay review with a couple hundred thousand views by someone with 1.9M subscribers; and a review by Gamrbrain.

On the talk page the one and only game developer wanted to provide some YouTube videos, game statistics and online reviews to indicate the significance of the game. Nobody responded to his request. So I'm going to link to a few of his tweets about game statistics: possibly a server peak, another server peak, pageviews, number of players per lobbies.

Only one section of the page was questionably promotional (→Customization) and I'm referring to the last revision before deletion; and the section could've easily be deleted. No one related, sponsored by or affiliated by the game has been editting the article. Wumbolo (talk) 08:58, 29 August 2016 (UTC)

@Wumbolo: While I am unsure whether the article should have been A7d, I am skeptical that it would have survived an article for deletion discussion based on [16] (search for "splix")--which is a Google custom search engine of sources which are known to be reliable regarding video game content. I got all of three hits, which means that the topic is not likely to be notable. --Izno (talk) 11:36, 29 August 2016 (UTC)

Lee Man-hee/Shinchonji[edit]

Hi, thanks for your diligence on the Lee Man-hee page. I'm watching a livestream of his birthday celebration in Seoul Olympic Stadium right now and keeping an eye on the Wikipedia page.

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svgHello, Mike Rosoft. 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. 17:48, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

Kumar Basnet[edit]

Thank you so much for deleting an artist from Wikipedia but you cannot delete his contribution from Nepali music industry. You could have suggested or advised about it but now it's okay we are Nepalese, less is the Nepalese material on internet, the better for you foreigners. I am not an editor here neither do I know your norms. You guys have place in wiki for fictional artists like Bond007, Holmes, Jon Snow because they are English, White and Popular.

  • @Thapa Kazi999: I am afraid I cannot undelete the article; as I have said, it is a copyright violation. (If you want me to, I can recover the deleted text and e-mail it to you.) But feel free to create a new version of the article, making sure that you write it in your own words and without closely copying another source, either online or offline. See the copyright policy. - Mike Rosoft (talk) 17:23, 13 October 2016 (UTC)

Hello Mr. Mike, What are the different ways to upload a photo to biographies?? Likely suggest an easy method. Thapa Kazi999 (talk) 05:50, 14 October 2016 (UTC)

  • @Thapa Kazi999: First of all: did you take the photo yourself? Or, alternately, did whoever holds its copyright grant you a permission to publish it under a free license? If not, then I am afraid you can't upload the photo to Wikipedia. (To do so would constitute copyright violation; see the image use policy. There is a fair use exception, but it is unlikely to apply in case of a biography of a living person, because such use would be replaceable; anybody could take a photo of the artist and release it under a free license.)

    If you have in fact taken the photo, then you can simply go to Wikimedia Commons, use the "Upload file" link, and follow the further instructions. Don't forget to choose an appropriate license; the usual ones are Creative Commons Attribution (CC-BY) or Attribution Sharealike (CC-BY-SA) license. (A free license needs to allow third-party use, modification and creation of derivative works, and commercial use. The difference between CC-BY and CC-BY-SA is that the latter requires that any work which makes the use of the licensed photo must be itself under the same license.) - Mike Rosoft (talk) 06:04, 14 October 2016 (UTC)

A new user right for New Page Patrollers[edit]

Hi Mike Rosoft.

A new user group, New Page Reviewer, has been created in a move to greatly improve the standard of new page patrolling. The user right can be granted by any admin at PERM. It is highly recommended that admins look beyond the simple numerical threshold and satisfy themselves that the candidates have the required skills of communication and an advanced knowledge of notability and deletion. Admins are automatically included in this user right.

It is anticipated that this user right will significantly reduce the work load of admins who patrol the performance of the patrollers. However,due to the complexity of the rollout, some rights may have been accorded that may later need to be withdrawn, so some help will still be needed to some extent when discovering wrongly applied deletion tags or inappropriate pages that escape the attention of less experienced reviewers, and above all, hasty and bitey tagging for maintenance. User warnings are available here but very often a friendly custom message works best.

If you have any questions about this user right, don't hesitate to join us at WT:NPR. (Sent to all admins).MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:47, 15 November 2016 (UTC)

DinarDirham Article[edit]

Hello, I'm busy with real life too - mainly my job. I was asked to collect, write, and publish a company Wikipedia article, and it was just deleted. There are other company profile on Wikipedia. And I tried to make it informative, add external links from other well known publications about us, and add competitors and criticism to make it more subjective. It was not soliciting people to buy anything or to participate in the company either, strictly informative.

Did you fully read the article, and look at all of the sources? Is it possible to have it un-deleted, or published again without being deleted?

Thank you very much, DinarDirham — Preceding unsigned comment added by DinarDirham (talkcontribs) 09:03, 30 December 2016 (UTC)

  • @DinarDirham: I have reviewed the deleted article, but I can confirm that it was little more than a publicity page of the company and its service (gold trading/cryptocurrency). Wikipedia indeed has articles about companies, but they are not meant to be company profiles - they generally aren't created by the companies themselves, and in any case the companies are not entitled to control the contents of their articles.

The 1980 vigilante film The Exterminator[edit]


This is Frank, a fellow Wikipedia editor. Regarding the 1980 vigilante film, The Exterminator, you removed a key point about how it ended in some territories and claimed that the point was nonsensical, alongside an anonymous editor who agreed with you. Mike, it wasn't nonsensical. James Glickenhaus, who made the film, stated in the Anchor Bay Entertainment's liner notes of their "Director's Cut" release about why he edited the film removing several minutes of footage and that he also said "in some territories, I was forced to change the ending to show Eastland died as opposed to him surviving." These were the words that he said in the liner notes. I have this particular issue myself and that is how I know. I even brought that up on the talk page for this respective movie. Again, it wasn't nonsensical as Glickenhaus did say these things in the liner notes. Yes, he did. I am not lying to you nor making anything up. I am just stating this as from what I read in the Anchor Bay "Director's Cut" issue of this particular film. I am trying to find a source to prove this, but haven't been able. Maybe you can help. Just a thought. I also would like for us to come to an agreement on this on how to present it to the article on this film. Thanks in advance of you can help out in any wayFrschoonover (talk) 23:33, 7 January 2017 (UTC)

  • @Frschoonover: I didn't say that it was nonsensical; rather, I removed it because it was sourced to a discussion board. (I was slightly wrong when I said that it didn't mention the difference; actually, it did, but it cited Wikipedia itself. Naturally, such a circular reference is not useful.) You say that this information comes from material included in the Director's Cut release; this is a primary source which indeed can be used for simple facts. - Mike Rosoft (talk) 07:08, 8 January 2017 (UTC)

There is only one question, Mike. How can I re-submit the edit and citing the source that it came from? The only way that I can cite is "Anchor Bay Entertainment's Director's Cut release liner notes based on James Glickenhaus' own words". Other than that, I don't know how else. There is no other online thing, just the liner notes on the DVD. If you have any ideas, please share. Thanks.Frschoonover (talk) 23:34, 8 January 2017 (UTC)

Mike, Do you have any ideas about how I should present this thing, in regards to The Exterminator? Could I put it the way that I mentioned above? Any ideas? Thanks. Frschoonover (talk) 04:04, 12 January 2017 (UTC)

Patrick J McGinnis[edit]

Hi Mike,

I'm surprised you nominated this page for speedy deletion. I cited Penguin itself and 3 respectable publications (Working Mother, Fortune, and Parade) and meets the inclusion ("notability) guidelines. All are reliable third-party sources. I've seen many other author pages with the same amount of substantiation. Can you please remove? Thanks.

Natalie — Preceding unsigned comment added by Naspirta (talkcontribs) 20:25, 10 January 2017 (UTC)

  • @Naspirta: I have reviewed the article, and I agree that the page is not a speedy deletion candidate; while the author is apparently only notable for a single book which was published last year, this is sufficient to avoid the A7 criterion. (I have also moved the page to Patrick McGinnis (author); page titles are case-sensitive and need to be properly capitalized, and Wikipedia already has an article about a different Patrick J. McGinnis.) - Mike Rosoft (talk) 20:43, 10 January 2017 (UTC)
  • @Mike Rosoft: I just added some information that may make it notable. He's credited with coining the phrase FoMo and has a source at Boston Magazine. Is that sufficient?

Hi, I'm wondering if you know what the protocol is if you suspect one editor is using multiple IP addresses to edit the same articles. I've read over Wikipedia:Sock puppetry and it seems to deal more with named accounts rather than IP addresses. I think that all of these IP addresses are being used by the same person:

I left messages requesting this user to register an account, but I haven't received a response. These generally seem like good faith and productive edits, but it concerns me that one individual appears to be using multiple accounts. Thanks for any thoughts you may have. Marquardtika (talk) 16:24, 30 January 2017 (UTC)

  • Following the latest RfC concluding that Pending Changes 2 should not be used on the English Wikipedia, an RfC closed with consensus to remove the options for using it from the page protection interface, a change which has now been made. (T156448)
  • The Foundation has announced a new community health initiative to combat harassment. This should bring numerous improvements to tools for admins and CheckUsers in 2017.

Katharine Gorka[edit]

I do not understand why you reverted those edits. Drmies (talk) 05:25, 11 February 2017 (UTC)

  • @Drmies:, @ The edit which I have reverted was really weird. It removed some of the entries in the article, but in one case it kept a link (ref tag) which now was attached to a different entry, and in two other cases it kept fragments of the ref tags. Also strange was the removal of a part of the sentence starting with "Gorka lived in Hungary for 12 years where she co-founded with her husband", including the reference. - Mike Rosoft (talk) 05:34, 11 February 2017 (UTC)

Project Puthri[edit]

Hello Mr.Mike, Kindly revive my page. You have deleted before I could edit and save. Kindly do so at the earliest.

Thanks — Preceding unsigned comment added by Abhiramineela (talkcontribs) 06:51, 14 February 2017 (UTC)

  • @Abhiramineela: I have in fact deleted the article Project PUTHRI after you have edited it, so the original reason (placeholder article with no content under criterion A1 - the criterion A3 would have been a better match) no longer applies. However, I am afraid I still can't undelete the article, because it was promotional in nature, and as such, it falls under the speedy deletion G11 (an article whose whole purpose is to promote or publicize a particular person, organization, product, etc.). Wikipedia is not a directory, or an advertising board. (I understand that this organizations serves a good cause, but I am afraid you still can't use Wikipedia to promote it). If you don't have the article's text saved and want to find an alternate outlet for it, please e-mail me and I'll send it to you. - Mike Rosoft (talk) 07:05, 14 February 2017 (UTC)

Hi Mike, Can I create the page again with the same name, the content is fresh and original, it is not promotional. I am not promoting any organisation or product. Kindly let me know at the earliest. Thanks — Preceding unsigned comment added by Abhiramineela (talkcontribs) 04:40, 15 February 2017 (UTC)

  • @Abhiramineela: The title is currently not protected from creation, so yes, you can (though unless the project is normally spelled with all-caps, the correct title is Project Puthri; page titles are case-sensitive). But please don't re-create it in this form; as I have said, it was promotional in nature. Also, please note that coverage in reliable third-party sources is the primary notability (inclusion) criterion. If the article's subject hasn't attracted third-party coverage, then it is possible that the article will be immediately nominated for deletion again. - Mike Rosoft (talk) 05:55, 15 February 2017 (UTC)

Thank you so much. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Abhiramineela (talkcontribs) 08:12, 15 February 2017 (UTC)

Canada flag?[edit]

While as a Canadian, I'm always pleased to see my country associated with democracy, I have to say I'm a bit puzzled by [17], if you're in Prague. Are you Canadian by any chance? Or is there another reason for the flag?

Of course, feel free to not answer if you're not willing to share that sort of detail here. I'm mostly asking out of curiousity. Headbomb {talk / contribs / physics / books} 11:23, 26 March 2017 (UTC)

  • @Headbomb: Well, there was a rather infamous user vandalizing articles with a Soviet flag and slogan "Wikipedia is Communism". Then another sockpuppet/copycat went for "Wikipedia is Nazism" instead. Then users started speculating what ideology would come next: "Wikipedia is Democracy"? Anarchism? Sufism? I caught on this idea, but since the user who suggested the slogan used the flag of the United States, and since I see the American democracy as rather flawed, I opted for the Canadian flag instead. (If you are interested in the context, I might temporarily undelete the page Wikipedia talk:Long term abuse/The Communism Vandal.) - Mike Rosoft (talk) 12:21, 26 March 2017 (UTC)
Oh, no need to undelete anything here, that's plenty of explanation. Canadian democracy has its flaws, but I'll agree we're faring much better than the US there. Both in 2006, and today. Headbomb {talk / contribs / physics / books} 12:33, 26 March 2017 (UTC)

Chemical weapon conjecture in the aftermath of the 2017 Shayrat missile strike[edit]

Hi Mike, Thanks for tagging and reviewing my page. I am a bit new at this and have improved the article a bit since tagged to include a balancing point of view and Assad's view, which is more the focus of the conjecture and the point for the article. Please let me know if you think I have done enough to remove the tag or if you have any pointers, guidance or suggestions? AssadistDEFECTOR (talk) 22:43, 3 May 2017 (UTC)

Fixation in Copyright Law[edit]

Hi I would be more than willing to remove the portion which had been copied. Most of the work that I did copy was referenced so please do let me know if there i something else to be done but please do restore it in my sandbox so that I can make the requisite changes. Thanks — Preceding unsigned comment added by InvoQWER (talkcontribs) 11:29, 8 May 2017 (UTC)

  • @InvoQWER: I am afraid I can't restore the article, not even the draft version in your user space. As I have said, the article was a copyright violation; almost the entire article has been copied, with minor rephrasing, from outside sources. If you want to re-create the article, I recommend that you redo it from the scratch. (If you want me to, I can recover the deleted text and e-mail it to you.) - Mike Rosoft (talk) 14:18, 8 May 2017 (UTC)

Hi I am sorry but I would disagree. I could actually point out the portions that would be copyright violations. And that is only in the "Issues in Indian Law" section and some portion of the Introduction. Also, the portion has been cited properly. Anyway, please do send me the deleted text. Thanks — Preceding unsigned comment added by InvoQWER (talkcontribs) 14:29, 8 May 2017 (UTC)

  • @InvoQWER: Your account doesn't have a registered e-mail. Please send me an e-mail to my address (which I have published on my user page in a slightly obfuscated form) and I'll send the text back to you. - Mike Rosoft (talk) 14:45, 8 May 2017 (UTC)

[Re: deletion of the article The Dump (retailer), comment removed by User:Colored]

(talk page watcher) @Colored: You do not own that (or any) page(s). Please review WP:OWN. - Mlpearc (open channel) 14:15, 1 June 2017 (UTC)
@Colored: Since you'll "take that into consideration", wouldn't you like to redact/re-phrase your comment above ? - Mlpearc (open channel) 14:43, 1 June 2017 (UTC)

@Colored: Why did I delete the article? As seen from the deletion log, I was acting under the speedy deletion criterion WP:CSD#A7 - article about a store (i.e. a company/organization) which makes no claim of importance or significance; see the inclusion (notability) guidelines for companies. I note that the article was deleted twice before, and that it contains no references except a link to the website of the store itself. Coverage in reliable third-party sources is the primary notability criterion. - Mike Rosoft (talk) 16:13, 1 June 2017 (UTC)

Block ip[edit]

dear sir

please send me reason for my page delete & block ip i m punjabi artist

regard Parminder Gill — Preceding unsigned comment added by Parminderbarnala (talkcontribs)

  • @Parminderbarnala: The reason why I deleted your articles is that you have been blatantly attempting to bypass the result of the previous deletion debate. If the article Parminder Gill has been deleted as a result of the debate at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Parminder Gill, then it is inappropriate to constantly re-create the deleted article with nearly identical content as drafts in your user space and/or in the draft namespace. And it is especially inappropriate to create it at multiple places at a time, even in the talk page namespace which serves a very different purpose.

    In addition, if you are in fact Parminder Gill, then please note that creation of articles about yourself is generally frowned upon; see the conflict of interest guideline. In particular, Wikipedia may not be used to promote yourself or your activities, or as a hosting service. (If you still disagree with the deletion, then the proper venue is deletion review; not re-creation of the article.)

    If you continue re-creating the article, then I may have no option but to report you at administrators' notice. (I have previously warned you that further re-creation of your article may result in an indefinite block, so please don't push your luck.)

But, Can Now Become My Page? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:11, 30 July 2017 (UTC) we create biography — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:14, 30 July 2017 (UTC)

  • @ No, and please stop asking. Your article has been deleted in a deletion debate; I have already pointed you to deletion review if you want to challenge the result. (But note that we won't undelete the article solely because you disagree with the deletion; see the inclusion/notability guidelines. Coverage in reliable third-party sources is the primary criterion.) Also, as I have said, it is recommended that users do not create articles about themselves; see the conflict of interest guideline.

    One more heads-up: when you comment on a talk page or in a deletion debate, or on a similar page, you need to sign yourself by adding the string ~~~~ after your comment so that it can be known who and when posted the comment. This produces the user name/IP address and the date and time of the comment, like this: Mike Rosoft (talk) 16:52, 30 July 2017 (UTC)

Question of authorship[edit]

Given that it's tied to an ongoing sockpuppet investigation I'm running, could you tell me which editor created the article on Kenneth Sebastian that you deleted a little over a year ago? Thanks in advance. Sir Sputnik (talk) 16:12, 6 September 2017 (UTC)


I'm convinced you did the right thing when you deleted Power abuse disorder. What I am wondering is if you could dump the references (only) onto a page in my draftspace. I was collaborating with another editor on this topic a while ago but never got around to creating it. It looks like someone tried but made a big mistake. Thanks so much. Best Regards, Barbara (WVS)   00:03, 12 September 2017 (UTC)

p.s. I was reading your talk page after posting this - it really is pretty funny and very entertaining. You get all kinds of visitors.

More sandboxes from an editor whose sandbox you deleted[edit]

Undoing talk page revisions[edit]

Hi there, You've reverted one of my changes (which I have done without logging in) on a talk page asking why someone cares (who is on the wrong side of an argument) - an invitation to concisely express their case. This is an important part of the process. You'll notice that the Dune calender is "AG" not "AD" as discussed above. Please look at context and do not revert useful content on talk pages.


  1. First and
  2. Second

As I would hope an experienced member such as yourself would know, talk pages are exactly for discussion and anyone who knows about the subject knows Dune uses an "AG" calender as a part of it's history. Please don't get involved if you do not understand this. 21:34, 10 December 2017 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk)

In order to make the new page I created about the Zip2Zone freight cost determination tool from the early years of e-commerce not considered promotional, and thus eligible to avoid deletion once again, I have made the opening paragraph more informative and reduced the timeline entries. I have not yet reposted it. What elements did you deem objectionable, as I would like to remedy those and then repost the page, hopefully with content that is viewed as fully compliant.
