Hello NawlinWiki,

you just deleted my page (marked as G11) about Eurooms Ltd.

Could you explain what exactly is promotional? Is it the price list? I just wanted to provide an overview on average price of houseshare in London. Is there anything else I should exclude?

Thanks for answer. DHcomics (talk) 16:03, 1 December 2015 (UTC)

  • It wasn't just the price list. The whole thing was written in a promotional tone, with lines like "Providing customers with a professional services was their main goal and today there is not doubt about their success, as Eurooms Ltd. has become a model for others in branch of long term shared housing." Please see WP:NPOV and WP:SPAM. NawlinWiki (talk) 16:30, 1 December 2015 (UTC)

Rochdale Super League (5 Articles) + Rochdale Rugby League Nines (2 Articles)[edit]

Hi NawlinWiki, I believe you have deleted 5 articles on the Rochdale Super League, may I ask why this is? I have spent hundreds of hours adding stuff to this page, and it is a disgrace that this has been removed without notification. Can you please post the article on here, so that I can keep it for our records. Regards, Matt

  • Let's skip the personal attacks, shall we? I've been off Wikipedia in general for a few days. An amateur sports league and its teams and competitions don't meet our standards for notability, see WP:ATHLETE. NawlinWiki (talk) 20:53, 11 December 2015 (UTC)
  • This sports league is a Semi-Pro standard. The players would be disgusted to be known as amateurs.


Hi NawlinWiki, Why did you delete the page about homeautod? Why was it not to your liking? It's an open source project so it's not even commercial! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Coretech69 (talkcontribs) 06:26, 2 December 2015 (UTC)

Hello NawlinWiki, About a year ago, the PhilJets page has been deleted. I would like know how it could be restored, or how a new page could be published. Could you help me on this? It might have been judged not known at the time. Since then, the start up has grown significantly, and aviation lovers would be happy to have info on that growing player in the Philippines.

  • It looks like you have already added that information to the Thierry Tea page. You do seem to have sources, so it's fine with me if you want to move that information into a separate article on PhilJets. NawlinWiki (talk) 16:54, 16 December 2015 (UTC)
  • Thank you for your response. Hence, how to start or move the information? Is it ok if I just create a new PhilJets page?

Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/GermaineDounn[edit]

I noticed that one of your edit summaries at The Elephant Show mentioned sock puppetry and repeated vandalism. Given Scott Irvine's conection to that program and the recent vandalism at the Irvine article, I am wondering if there is a connection. Best.4meter4 (talk) 01:39, 23 December 2015 (UTC)

Deleted YP NextHome wiki page[edit]

Hi Nawlin, I just wrote an wikipedia article on YP NextHome so that visitors could find the rental apartments very easily as I was benefited in the similar way. I noticed that it was deleted as part of advertising & promotional activity. I wrote article which was similar to without any intention of promotion. Please let me know what sort of changes you expect me to do so that I could publish the article on wikipedia without violating guidelines.

Thanks in advance and your response would be highly appreciated Singhdheeraj21 (talk) 18:21, 28 December 2015 (UTC)

When you have a moment[edit]

Hello N. I saw that you extended the protection on the Hank Goldberg article. Would you please update this on the protection template when you have the time.

Matt Fax page being deleted[edit]

Hi, you just deleted the Matt Fax page, because he's "not an important person". Let me just precise that the man is selling records, is ranking on Beatport Top 100 at almost every releases, is supported by some Top 100 ranked DJs (as wrote in the article) and some of the greatest artists in the music industry. Could you please explain why you disabled the page ? Thanks. Nkwn (talk) 16:57, 4 January 2016 (UTC) nkwni (talk) 17:57, 4 January 2016 (UTC)

  • You need to cite reliable independent sources (i.e., not Facebook and Beatport, see WP:V) to show this person's notability per WP:MUSIC. NawlinWiki (talk) 20:11, 5 January 2016 (UTC)

Request for unprotection of "Empty page"[edit]

Hi, I wanted to create a redirect from Empty page to Intentionally blank page, similar to the existing redirect from Blank page, but the non-existing page is salted for vandalism. Can you unprotect it, please? (I'm contacting you because according to the logs you have been one of the admins involved back then.) Thanks --Matthiaspaul (talk) 13:20, 6 January 2016 (UTC)

Draft:Spottswoode Estate Vineyard & Winery[edit]

You deleted Spottswoode Estate Vineyard & Winery last year as blatant promotion or advertising. I am reviewing a new draft, and am inclined to accept it, but I would appreciate if you could check the deleted article (which I can't see) and verify that the new draft is entirely different (as I think it is, because I can't imagine it being thought to be G11). Thank you. Robert McClenon (talk) 01:30, 9 January 2016 (UTC)


I noticed the article was deleted due to notability concerns and for advert before that. I poked around Google a little bit and found an article about them in The Wall Street Journal among others. I can't see the deleted versions, so I was hoping to get some context from you on whether there was a problem with the contents of the article, or if the subject just doesn't warrant inclusion in Wikipedia.

I have a potential COI. A contact of mine just recently got a job there; I am communicating to him that prior staff at that company have spammed Wikipedia and am trying to figure out if I can help him make a useful contribution, but notability looks kinda 50/50. I have found some decent sources at-a-glance,[1][2][3][4] but with sentiment about notability changing all the time in response to adverts/spam, it's hard to peg with precision/consistency.

Undelete of Railfuture[edit]

Hello Nawlin, I just ended up redlinking to Railfuture. Would you be able to undelete it to User:Sladen/Railfuture so I can take a look at it over the next couple of months see what can be done with it. After nine years out, perhaps it has a future! Many appreciations in advance, —Sladen (talk) 23:14, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

As well as the first two attempts from c.2007, there's another attempt at Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Railfuture from c.2014—which I can't see either. If it makes sense, please could you consider doing a histmerge of all three attempts →Railfuture prior to undeleting to user space. —Sladen (talk) 23:55, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

Hawk'N Hawk request[edit]

Hi, I am Hawk'N Hawk and I would like to ask permission to create an article for Yu-Gi-Oh The Abridged Series. While back in 2008, there wasn't a lot to go by, a lot has happened and I feel that it's influence on both the internet and internet culture should allow it to be on the same pedestal as Markiplier or Channel Awesome. It isn't some random video on the internet, it was the founder of an entire genre of internet videos and I feel that it should have a category on wikipedia. — Preceding unsigned comment added by HawkNHawk (talkcontribs) 07:53, 13 April 2016 (UTC)


I see that you semi-protected Fish back on July 11, 2008 NawlinWiki. No complaints here - just wish we could do all promoted articles that way - it would save all the ridiculous time spent on undoing the damage done by vandals.

Unprotection Request[edit]

Hello. I was hoping you could unprotect LaToya Forever from creation so I can add an article I have written on her, it was protected in November 2013 due to being created by a banned user. Full disclosure I am being paid by someone who contacted me through Fiverr to create an article that is within Wikipedia guidelines, full sources etc. to demonstrate the notability of the subject. I have written the article and I believe it is both neutral and factual and should be acceptable within Wikipedia guidelines. The article is currently residing at User:MPJ-DK/Draft Space 2 but due to the actions of a banned user over two-and-a-half years ago it's still just a draft. I was hoping that after reading the article that you could unlock the page and let me create it? Please let me know if you have any concerns etc. always happy to address any issues there may be with my request. Thanks in advance.  MPJ-DK  20:43, 10 July 2016 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, NawlinWiki. 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)

Two-Factor Authentication now available for admins[edit]


Please note that TOTP based two-factor authentication is now available for all administrators. In light of the recent compromised accounts, you are encouraged to add this additional layer of security to your account. It may be enabled on your preferences page in the "User profile" tab under the "Basic information" section. For basic instructions on how to enable two-factor authentication, please see the developing help page for additional information. Important: Be sure to record the two-factor authentication key and the single use keys. If you lose your two factor authentication and do not have the keys, it's possible that your account will not be recoverable. Furthermore, you are encouraged to utilize a unique password and two-factor authentication for the email account associated with your Wikimedia account. This measure will assist in safeguarding your account from malicious password resets. Comments, questions, and concerns may be directed to the thread on the administrators' noticeboard.

A new user right for New Page Patrollers[edit]

Hi NawlinWiki.

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)

Hello Nawlin. I just created a list page for the surname Rüster. I would like to also create a 'redirect' to this list from the word Ruster.

420chan redirect[edit]

Hi, I'd like to request that the redirect for 420chan have its indefinite protection removed. Said protection was set by you in 2008, which was understandable at the time as imageboards were a dime a dozen and the article was poorly written content, however nowadays as other imageboards have come to exist and have grown to similar or even smaller sizes, whom now have their own dedicated articles (see Ylilauta and 8chan as an example) there is no reason for this redirect to not now be turned into a proper article. It's a 12 year old burgeoning community and a successful business.

Thank you for your work! Kirtaner (talk) 18:59, 24 January 2017 (UTC)

Creating an article on the species Graphania averilla[edit]

I noticed that you have previously deleted an article on the above moth species. I'm drafting an article on this species as it was discovered by Averil Margaret Lysaght about whom I have also contributed to Wikipedia. It seemed to polite to inform you that I am about to add the same to Wikipedia given your previous actions. Please let me know if you have any issues.

Need help with an attack category[edit]

This category had, until literally a couple of days ago, listed some Singapore-based IPs as my sockpuppets (Arbiteroftruth is my former account. I changed my name, after some advice from other Wikipedians, some years ago). I have never socked in my life, and I will gladly undergo Checkuser tests to prove that, so this category is an attack cat, and rather offensive. Can it be deleted and protected from recreation?

(talk page watcher) The category will be deleted in a couple of days. -- zzuuzz (talk) 07:23, 28 May 2017 (UTC)

Oliver Naylor[edit]

Hi, could you userfy the content of this article for me? Might try to resurrect it. Thanks Chubbles (talk) 05:11, 31 May 2017 (UTC)

Never mind, I just found its content on an external page, it was worthless drivel about a teenager. Chubbles (talk) 22:36, 3 June 2017 (UTC)

Spambot:[edit] (talk · contribs · WHOIS)


I just came upon this IP's attempted edits while patrolling recent changes/vandalism, and I checked the /16 range and happened to notice that you had blocked the range in the past for spamming. Not sure whether or not this is related at all, but this appears to be a long-term issue. Could you take a look into this? Thank you. 2601:1C0:4401:F360:3DB2:F0A8:EEA7:B25F (talk) 05:12, 8 June 2017 (UTC)
