Re: Notability of Green Parties?[edit]

I can indeed. Many of the parties, in the articles, fail to show how they are notable, and if they do, they don't back it up with an in-line citation. Me-123567-Me (talk) 00:37, 2 January 2016 (UTC)

Namibian War of Independence[edit]

Nicolas Batum and Cameroon[edit]

Hi,

I see you removed the [[Category:French people of Cameroonian descent]] again. It is specifically stated in both sources that:

  • While Batum was born in France and holds citizenship there, his father, Richard, was from Cameroon. The small forward has talked recently about wanting to give back, and start a junior program in that West African nation.

  • "This is huge for us and huge for me," Batum stated about the importance of an NBA game being played in Africa. "I grew up in France, played for the French team and am French, but my dad is from Cameroon. I’ve got roots in Cameroon and family in Cameroon, so for the first time in my life I’ll be able to experience the pride of playing in a jersey with Cameroon on it. My family and I are proud about that. It’s a special thing for me."

  • Team Africa is comprised of players born in Africa and second-generation African players and...

So how it doesn't say that with a source? – Sabbatino (talk) 12:33, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

I'm glad that there is a source. Please add that detail to the article and use the source to cite it. Read WP:BLPCAT for more information on why claims around ethnicity must be mentioned and proven. Thanks!--TM 13:33, 5 February 2016 (UTC)
I added that detail when I added those sources: "His father, Richard, a Cameroon native, was a professional basketball player in France." Can that category be reinstated? – Sabbatino (talk) 14:40, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

Yoruba people[edit]

Hi, I noticed that you have removed various biographies from the Yoruba people category hierarchy.

Even though the articles did not mention the people's ethnicity, I would not have made that change, as they have distinctively Yoruba names, which I would consider sufficient evidence. – Fayenatic London 13:22, 6 February 2016 (UTC)

That's not sufficient evidence according to Wikipedia.--TM 13:48, 6 February 2016 (UTC)

Hello there -

You removed pertinent, relevant and accurate information regarding the Munjoy Hill entry of Wikipedia. We updated this entry to include a notable building relevant to the community as well as another notable person. Was your removal due to sourcing? I'm happy to provide more source material to support these benign but accurate/relevant updates to this entry.

Thank you — Preceding unsigned comment added by HillMan04101 (talkcontribs) 19:13, 1 March 2016 (UTC)

United States presidential election, 2016[edit]

Regarding the article, "United States presidential election, 2016", by what logic does an alphabetical listing make more sense than a listing by size? If that were the case, then the Constitutionalist party would be listed before both the Greens and the Libertarians. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2602:302:D188:9E20:7473:47F3:D8D:B499 (talk) 11:47, 22 March 2016 (UTC)

Edit warring on Mike Michaud[edit]

I hope you're aware of how many reverts you've been making on that article. So far I've counted at least 4 partial reverts in under 24 hours. Technically this counts as a block, but all I'm doing is posting this warning just so that you're aware. Minima© (talk) 17:16, 23 April 2016 (UTC)

Please stop creating category redlinks[edit]

Both WP:Categorization and WP:REDNOT say the same thing- An article should never be left with a non-existent (redlinked) category on it.

Repost of Kent Mesplay[edit]

Information icon A tag has been placed on Kent Mesplay requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia, because it appears to be a repost of material that was previously deleted following a deletion process. If you can indicate how it is different from the previously posted material, contest the deletion by clicking on the button that looks like this: Speedy delete contest button.svg which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate). Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's discussion directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Administrators will consider your reasoning before deciding what to do with the page. If you believe the original discussion was unjustified, please contact the administrator who deleted the page or use deletion review instead of recreating the page. Thank you.

Mark Bryant (politician)[edit]

Hi-I notice you change the title of the article from Mark Bryant (Maine) to Mark Bryant (politician). When I started the article I took into account that were several people named Mark Bryant and the possibility of some of them were politicians. That was the reason I added Maine to the title of the article and not politician. Many thanks-RFD (talk) 11:29, 15 May 2016 (UTC)

If other Mark Bryant's who are politicians become notable, I have no objection to moving the article to Mark Bryant (Maine politician).--TM 11:58, 15 May 2016 (UTC)

There is nothing on Audrey Rendon bio page that establishes she passes that Wikipedia notability guideline. It also says she played pro softball.

Speedy Deletion of Austin Petersen presidential campaign, 2016[edit]

I just wanted to let you know that the Austin Petersen presidential campaign, 2016 page (which was a draft you reviewed and approved) is now up for speedy deletion. Acidskater (talk) 04:38, 27 May 2016 (UTC)

I deleted it as the content is not substantively more based on reliable sources than Austin Petersen which was deleted and went through DRV which did not succeed.
