May 2014 disambig contest: let's do it again![edit]

Greetings fellow disambiguator! Remember back in February when we made history by clearing the board for the first time ever, for the monthly disambiguation contest? Let's do it again in May! I personally will be aiming to lead the board next month, but for anyone who thinks they can put in a better effort, I will give a $10 Amazon gift card to any editor who scores more disambiguation points in May. Also, I will be setting up a one-day contest later in the month, and will try to set up more prizes and other ways to make this a fun and productive month. Cheers! bd2412 T 18:49, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Hello MrLinkinPark333.

Film categories[edit]

Hi. Thanks for your recent edit on this article. Please note that all films have three primary categories (Year, Country and Language) per WP:FILMCAT. So the category Category:Argentine films should not be removed, even though there is a category for Argentine drama films. The latter is a sub-cat of Argentine films by genre, and not films by country. Also each country category has the following text: "For convenience, all Argentine films are included in this category. This includes all Argentine films that can also be found in the subcategories." If you have any further questions, please visit the Film Project. Thanks.

Orphaned non-free image File:ArtofMurderFBIConfidential.jpg[edit]

⚠

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

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 14:57, 21 March 2015 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:ArtofMurderFBIConfidential.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:ArtofMurderFBIConfidential.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file has agreed to release it under the given license.

If you are the copyright holder for this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. You may wish to read the Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 21:57, 21 March 2015 (UTC)

Links to disambiguation pages[edit]

Thank you for fixing templates with links to disambiguation pages. I noticed that you have added the template "disambiguation needed" a lot of times. Did you know that it is allowed to create red links by solving the links? A link as Craig Evans (basketball) is perfectly valid (and an invitation to write the article).

A new reference tool[edit]

Hello Books & Bytes subscribers. There is a new Visual Editor reference feature in development called Citoid. It is designed to "auto-fill" references using a URL or DOI. We would really appreciate you testing whether TWL partners' references work in Citoid. Sharing your results will help the developers fix bugs and improve the system. If you have a few minutes, please visit the testing page for simple instructions on how to try this new tool. Regards, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 18:47, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

TWL HighBeam check-in[edit]

Hello Wikipedia Library Users,

You are receiving this message because the Wikipedia Library has record of you receiving a one-year subscription to HighBeam. This is a brief update to remind you about that access:

  • Make sure that you can still log in to your HighBeam account; if you are having trouble feel free to contact me for more information. When your access expires you can reapply at WP:HighBeam.
  • Remember, if you find this source useful for your Wikipedia work, make sure to include citations with links on Wikipedia: links to partner resources are one of the few ways we can demonstrate usage and demand for accounts to our partners. The greater the linkage, the greater the likelihood a useful partnership will be renewed. For more information about citing this source, see Wikipedia:HighBeam/Citations
  • Write unusual articles using this partner's sources? Did access to this source create new opportunities for you in the Wikipedia community? If you have a unique story to share about your contributions, let us know and we can set up an opportunity for you to write a blog post about your work with one of our partner's resources.

Finally, we would greatly appreciate if you filled out this short survey. The survey helps us not only better serve you with facilitating this particular partnership, but also helps us discover what other partnerships and services the Wikipedia Library can offer.

Thank you. Sent by MediaWiki message delivery (talk) at 16:45, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

Ship names[edit]

deOrphaning script[edit]

Hello everyone! I was just working on responding to a couple bug reports for a script that I worked up as part of a request from this project, and I noticed that only a couple people (who weren't even on this mailing list) are actually using the script. A little history on the script: In March of 2014, Jim Cartar came to my user talk page and said he needed some help in acquiring a script for a backlog drive that he was working on that could keep track of and score deOrphanings for a scored backlog drive. I took that request to the project's talk page (BackLog Drive "DO" (De-Orphaning) script proposal) and there was near unanimous support for this. I thought about the proposal and decided the best way to do it was to build a new script (which is still no where near as comprehensive as Manishearth's OrphanTabs) and build into it a mechanism that will make BLD scoring easy.

What I'm wondering at this point is, since there appears to be only two people using the script, should I continue to develop this script with a goal of using it for scoring BLDs or just debug the existing script and leave it at that. Thanks for any replies or comments.

If you wish to opt-out of future mailings, please remove yourself from the mailing list or alternatively to opt-out of all massmessage mailings, you may add Category:Opted-out of message delivery to your user talk page.

Your edit on 20:20 (Ryan Adams album)[edit]

Hi - I noticed you edited the info box on the Ryan Adams box-set 20:20 from reading 'Unreleased box-set' to just 'Box set'. As it is unreleased I think the status is valid, but I don't want to just revert the change without talking to you first. Would appreciate your reasoning if you have a moment. Many thanks! Dennisthemonkeychild (talk) 11:38, 20 May 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for your feedback, I didn't realise that the parameter would flag up like that. At the moment it seems the infobox has no allowance for unreleased albums so leaving as is probably works best. I think it's better than classifying it as 'other' in any case. Either that or it just shouldn't have the infobox at all?Dennisthemonkeychild (talk) 09:02, 21 May 2015 (UTC)

Hey there! I know there is some kind of problem for the pages of Dave Farrell and Rob Bourdon, and I would also like to help you in that case. The problem is that these two members aren't that active as the rest members are. This makes a very small article about them, which is ultimately deleted or redirected. So if you know any extra info about them then go ahead and make the pages, I would give the info that I know to the page.

Your Newspapers.com free account[edit]

In your response to the google form in the signup email you mentioned that you've had a free account since June 2014. It's possible to sign up for a "free account" that doesn't give you access to much or any content. The free account is just what you get when you register, and you only get full access to content when it gets activated by Newspapers.com staff in response to a request from the Wikipedia Library account coordinator (ie me). Would you check and see if that's what you have please? Just try a search and see if it shows you the actual newspaper results or instead asks you to upgrade to a paid subscription (but don't pay anything if it does!)

Unfilled reqs[edit]

Hey, a suggestion re: filling unfilled reqs at WP:RX—some of the older ones (older than a year) might not even be wanted anymore, so it's worth talk page messaging the requester before digging those threads back up (some users won't be active anymore or might have otherwise lost interest in the article). czar 00:29, 27 October 2015 (UTC)

@Czar: - Regarding the old requests, I email the user regarding the request and ask if they want the articles. Some of them I've received a reply, while others I have not. A few of the requesters were grateful that i found the resource (and even forgot about the request) --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 00:35, 27 October 2015 (UTC)

Sounds good. Just thought it would be worth mentioning before resuscitating from the page's archives czar
@Czar: True. Most of the ones I revived I got a response from. I've also revived other requests but I've haven't received a message for those users. So I'll probably not move them unless i get a reply. Did you also see my question about the archive bot? --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 00:47, 27 October 2015 (UTC)

@LouisAragon: I wasn't able to locate it. JSTOR doesn't have it, and Google Books only has snippet views. You can leave the request open in case another user is able to find it. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 18:44, 18 November 2015 (UTC)

New Olympic gold medalists in swimming vs. synchronized swimming[edit]

Hi, MrLinkinPark. As an active member of WP:SWIMMING, I've been watching the slow progress of adding the new Category:Olympic gold medalists for the United States in swimming. I just noticed that you are including synchronized swimmers in the same new category as competitive swimmers. Synchronized swimming (scored artistic movements) and competitive swimming (timed distance events) are completely different sports, and these two classes of Olympic medalists need to separated into different categories. If you have any questions, or difficulty picking out the synchronized swimming already lumped in with the competitive swimmers, please ask. Cheers. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 00:08, 30 December 2015 (UTC)

Ocarina of Time and username question[edit]

Hi, I was wondering if you could either restore the following link https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Tristam/sandbox or look at its history and transcribe the page before it was deleted unto a pastebin for me. The user who nominated it for deletion claims it was a copy of the Ocarina of Time page but it wasn't. It had more extensive details and quotations from an interview that I'd never seen before. (I know it wasn't made up by the user because its content is referred to in the first question of this interview: http://web.archive.org/web/20040623040945/http://www.miyamotoshrine.com/theman/interviews/042399.shtml) I reiterate, the info isn't available elsewhere that I know of. Another thing. Is it possible to check who signed up with a particular name via an IP? I may or may not have created this while at my old job, but if I did then I didn't sign it up with an email since I can't recover a password. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Allytogood If you have to check for an IP, I can get someone from my job to post but I'm going to assume they use static IPs (being a telecom company). It's not a big deal, but if I could I'd like to have a uniform moniker on all sites. I'm sure you understand. Ally2good (talk) 20:27, 21 February 2016 (UTC)

@Northamerica1000: This message was meant for you, since I was the one who nominated it, not deleted it. Could this message to your talkpage since it was meant for you, and not me? --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 21:06, 21 February 2016 (UTC)

I'm not sure what that means, but go for it. Ally2good (talk) 16:31, 22 February 2016 (UTC) Edit: I looked it up. Please do so. Ally2good (talk) 16:33, 22 February 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for all your help! Would you be able to see what you can find for Draft:Beth Sotelo? BOZ (talk) 20:34, 5 March 2016 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: User:Allanafuah/AllanAfuah[edit]

Hello MrLinkinPark333. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of User:Allanafuah/AllanAfuah, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: I don't see how this is promotional. It's evidently a test page, and long unused, but nothing would be gained by deleting it. Thank you. JohnCD (talk) 15:12, 6 March 2016 (UTC)

...and the same goes for User:Amused reader/Amused Reader. That self-description would be perfectly acceptable as a user page, and is doing no harm. Generally, people's stale user pages should be left alone unless there is some actual problem: even then, replacing with {{Inactive userpage blanked}} is usually enough, and is less WP:BITEy if the user should one day return. Deletion does not save space, because deleted pages are retained in the database. JohnCD (talk) 15:20, 6 March 2016 (UTC)

BibISBN templates[edit]

Hi, thanks for asking about these. They would have been copied from German Wikipedia to support translated articles. As they aren't linked any more I suspect editors have replaced the templates at the articles concerned. So I have no problem if they nominated for deletion. --Bermicourt (talk) 19:52, 7 March 2016 (UTC)

Okay. However, I've seen some usage of the template (even if it doesn't work) here:. Should i remove the usage of the BibIbsn? --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 02:01, 8 March 2016 (UTC)
Hmm, I checked those links. I can see what the template is trying to do. Basically you create a Template for a commonly used book using its ISBN e.g. Template:BibISBN/0801857899 and fill in the parameters. The main BibISBN template is used with just the ISBN to call the individual book and display it in the standard reference/bibliography style. On German Wiki there are around 2,500 books in the template library. The problem is that I am not expert enough to get Template:BibISBN to function properly; not helped by the fact that the German version is now more complicated. So I guess there are 2 questions: first, is the idea useful enough to get some (ideally German-speaking) template experts to make it work? Second, is it then also a useful translator's tool which saves the hassle of repeatedly copying out the references? Personally, I'm content to just cut and paste the displayed text when I translate articles in future, so I'm not fussed if they're deleted. --Bermicourt (talk) 20:02, 8 March 2016 (UTC)

Josh Mosqueira[edit]

Can you find anything for Josh Mosqueira so that the article could be restored? BOZ (talk) 02:38, 8 March 2016 (UTC)

More drafts from AFD[edit]

Thank you for all the help you have given me so far on finding sources. Most of the articles I have asked you to look at so far were ones that I have had an eye on getting back into mainspace in the not-too-distant future, but no luck so far. Since those all went to AFD, I am more hesitant to move them myself, so I am just adding whatever sources I can find and hoping that sooner or later it will be enough. I have five more articles that did not survive AFD, and I am less hopeful on their speedy return, but I figure it is still good to see what can be found now because that will help with their ultimate future viability.  :) I am not expecting much, but see what you can do for these:

Thanks in advance! BOZ (talk) 20:40, 26 March 2016 (UTC)

You might not find much for these - or maybe really nothing for any of them - but if you don't mind checking I would appreciate that. :) BOZ (talk) 01:37, 2 April 2016 (UTC)

Jess Heinig[edit]

Hey, thanks for all of your help so far, I appreciate it! Progress is progress – less work that I have to do later.  ;) So far I have mostly been asking about articles that did not make it through AFD, and have been in Draft space for a while now. I am done with those for now!

Now I would like to move on to several that I have in Draft space but which did not go to AFD. These all came from various places: PROD or speedy, article redirected, or abandoned draft of another user. I view these as having a lower bar to inclusion than articles that did not make it through AFD; get a few sources on there, move it back into article space, and if someone wants to put it up at AFD then we will see what happens.

So, if you want to hang with me on this a little while longer, could you take a look and see if you can find anything for Draft:Jess Heinig? It was speedy deleted several years ago but I managed to find one good source for him, so it just needs another good source or two and I can move it back. BOZ (talk) 18:42, 11 April 2016 (UTC)

Red Gray[edit]

I see that you nominated some red gray redirects for deletion but there are quite a lot more. Feel like posting another nomination for deletion?

Steven Belledin[edit]

I moved this article to Draft:Steven Belledin last year after a PROD was added to the article. I figured it would just be easier to draft it thank risk it being deleted, even though a couple of sources were added. If you could find another source or two, that would probably be enough to move it back. :) BOZ (talk) 00:37, 16 April 2016 (UTC)

Your speedy delete nominations[edit]

Hi there,

I have been looking at your speedy delete nominations and declining or changing most of them. Users are allowed to have tests in their userspace. Also pages that are just the default wizard text can be nominated with G6 if the user has been inactive for a year. Just because the user wants to promote something does not make the page a candidate for db-spam. It must actually be written in a style that is advertising, and must not be easily converted to a neutral writing (say by deleting 80% of the text). I suggest you read Wikipedia:Criteria for speedy deletion carefully. Graeme Bartlett (talk) 00:43, 17 April 2016 (UTC)

T. S. Luikart[edit]

Could you see if you can find something for Draft:T. S. Luikart? It has a little something to it... maybe we could find a little something more.  :) BOZ (talk) 22:21, 22 April 2016 (UTC)

@BOZ: Sent an interview, but more reliable sources are needed. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 23:14, 22 April 2016 (UTC)

Troy Christensen[edit]

Thanks for the interview for T. S. Luikart; since that was deleted by PROD rather than AFD, I moved it back into article space. If it is put up for AFD at some point, I can always have it put back into Draft space to work on it more.

Meanwhile, is there anything you can find for Draft:Troy Christensen? I don't know if that one needs a whole lot more sources. BOZ (talk) 22:48, 28 April 2016 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Template:Nintendo World Championships finalists[edit]

I'm no expert in Wikipedia policies, but it seems this template was marked for speedy deletion because it is "a blatant misrepresentation of established policy". I don't see how it discusses policy in any way. Can you clarify what's going on here before I contest it? --TaviRider (talk) 04:15, 29 May 2016 (UTC)

@TaviRider: In my opinion, it looked more like an article than a template. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 18:01, 29 May 2016 (UTC)
@MrLinkinPark333: As I understand it, it was pulled out of the main article and protected because it was a very frequent target of vandalism. --TaviRider (talk) 04:27, 30 May 2016 (UTC)

Was Neelix, now Peridon...[edit]

I've declined a Neelix delete, and re-redirected it to Bokanovsky's Process. Jim isn't mentioned by name, but he was either the originator of the process or it was for some reason named after him, so far as I can see from Google anyway. Peridon (talk) 21:41, 15 July 2016 (UTC)

Please see:[edit]

Wikipedia:Administrators'_noticeboard#Neelix_redirects You are an example of the type of editor I was thinking about - someone with useful skills, but using them for a task which should not be done.--S Philbrick(Talk) 16:45, 16 July 2016 (UTC)

@Sphilbrick: I'm using the temporary Neelix speedy instead of using RFD to save a lot of time on the RFD. I only use the RFD if I'm not 100% sure if they should be deleted, or if there is an alternative target page. If you wish the temporary Neelix redirect should be stopped, that is fine with me. However, I believe I'm not who you should be speaking with. I'm helping with going through the list. I didn't create the list. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 16:54, 16 July 2016 (UTC)
I understand you didn't create it. But I wanted you to be aware that there is a distinct possiblity that we will remove the whole list, so I thought you might want to hold off, pending the result. Your skills could be applied on something useful. Keep in mind, the speedy still adds it to the CSD backlog, which is groaning at the moment.--S Philbrick(Talk) 16:59, 16 July 2016 (UTC)
@Sphilbrick: Then perhaps have a separate speedy for Neelix redirects instead? It was supposed to be temporary, but it's been 8 months, and it's just only over halfway done. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 17:04, 16 July 2016 (UTC)
I think you are missing the point. A speedy still means you have to review the item, then nominate it as a speedy, then an admin has to assess it. Multiply by 18000. That's an enormous wastage of time. I want to stop the waste. I think your mind - you are a librarian after all - is too valuable to waste, without even considering whether an admin's time has an value :) --S Philbrick(Talk) 17:11, 16 July 2016 (UTC)
@Sphilbrick: There's nothing else we can do though. If we make a bot to get rid of them, sure that will save a lot of time. However, a bot can accidentally delete redirects that are useful. Another idea would be to go through all of them, make a list of the ones that are not useful (with consensus), and mass delete them all at once with a bot? I only go through some of it at a time, and nominate a handful (while making sure I don't create a backlog). --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 17:16, 16 July 2016 (UTC)
Have you read my proposal at AN? No bot is needed. If you want to salvage some, go for it. Just remove them from the list.--S Philbrick(Talk) 17:24, 16 July 2016 (UTC)
@Sphilbrick: Yes I have and commented there multiple times. I don't agree with the timeframe limitation. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 17:27, 16 July 2016 (UTC)
OK, I see that you have commented there. I don't see how creating a separate speedy category solves anything, which made me wonder if you understood the problem. Do you really think the man months required is a good use of time?--S Philbrick(Talk) 17:31, 16 July 2016 (UTC)
Here's a solution to the timeframe problem. I'll create a copy of all the redirects and place them in a user subpage. Then, any time you want, if you find one that is useful, you can recreate it.--S Philbrick(Talk) 17:33, 16 July 2016 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Moslem Arab[edit]

Hello MrLinkinPark333.
