Help[edit]

Dear friend, a while ago you helped to improve a search template for me called {{Friendly search suggestions}} I use it for new articles written by new editors and has been very valuable - I use it myself all the time. I have found other reference search templates that I would like added to the {{Friendly search suggestions}} I can edit simple templates, but I can't seem to be able to handle this. Here are the other search templates I would like to add to {{Friendly..... :

  • {{Find sources multi/gbooks}}}
  • {{Find sources multi/gfreeimages}}
  • {{Find sources multi/archive}}
  • {{ Find sources multi/bing}}
  • {{ Find sources multi/gnewsrecent}}
  • {{Find sources multi/ddg}}
  • {{ Find sources 4 }}

p.s. DMOZ   Bfpage  let's talk...  11:45, 20 February 2017 (UTC)

If you would do this for me, I would be sorely tempted to shower your talk page with awards (but I promise to control myself).

The Very Best of Regards, Barbara (WVS)   13:03, 19 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Hi Barbara (WVS): I looked into this a bit, and an awesome {{Friendly search suggestions}} template with a multitude of options is a great idea to me. There are several ways this can be accomplished. It will take some time for me to go over matters, (I'm taking a semi-Wikibreak, but have been around lately) and I'll try to respond here later with more information. In the meantime, check out the {{Search for}} template (example at right), which provides options not found on other find sources templates. North America1000 16:30, 19 February 2017 (UTC)
Thank you so much! There is no hurry at all. I have been amazed to find the template so widely used - at least a couple of thousand articles so far!! You remember working on it with me, right? If not, that is fine. It wouldn't be such a fine template if it weren't for you...perhaps you remember working on Chips and Dip with me a while ago, you didn't go for the postulated theory of deaths related to superbowl parties where people were double-dipping into the guacamole...it was the funnest editing collaboration I have ever gotten to do. Thanks for all that you do. The Very Best of Regards,
Barbara (WVS)   17:28, 19 February 2017 (UTC)

Why, oh why?[edit]

When ever I read one of your food articles, I get pretty hungry.

Best Regardsm
  Bfpage  let's talk...  21:40, 22 March 2017 (UTC)
  • Hi Bfpage: Perhaps you were already hungry, and the article served as a food cue, further triggering hunger. Well, at least "pretty hungry" is not the same as being famished. Regardless, all editors should write food articles once in a while. North America1000 00:14, 23 March 2017 (UTC)

Deletion of Victor Ike[edit]

Trophy.png Deletion of Victor Ike
Hello Northamerica1000, I've trying to send you message but when i click on "Talk" on your page, it directs me to a different page. I wrote to John of Reading & Κσυπ Cyp for the delection of the article i'm still working on and told me that was you that delected it. Please can you explain your deletion of that article "Victor Ike" It was a soft redirect and was created using the appropriate template for such. I'm still working on it and It did not qualify for a speedy or any other deletion since we having pages like that is very normal. I would appreciate if you can restore it.

Regards Tracy Tracy Williams (talk) 22:43, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

  • Hi Tracy Williams: I haven't found any problems with my talk page links. I deleted the Victor Ike article per the strong consensus for deletion that occurred at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Victor Ike, whereby the community determined that the subject does not presently meet Wikipedia's notability standards. Per the overall arguments and consensus at the deletion discussion, I'm not allowed to just restore the deleted article to the main article namespace under these circumstances. Also, upon viewing the deleted content, the most recent version you were working on was an actual article, rather than a redirect. The redirect that you created on 20 February 2017 redirected to User:Tracy Williams, but this is not allowed per point #6 of WP:R#DELETE, so User:CactusWriter appropriately deleted it.

DYK for Banana pasta[edit]

Updated DYK query.svg On 23 March 2017, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Banana pasta, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that banana pasta is lower in calories and fat, higher in protein, and less expensive to produce than whole wheat pasta? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Banana pasta. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Banana pasta), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

Banana pasta[edit]

Thanks for creating this. Could you please take a picture?Zigzig20s (talk) 20:06, 23 March 2017 (UTC)

My thanks to you as well N. It is always fun to learn something new. Now I'm hungry but dinner is hours away :-) Cheers. MarnetteD|Talk 20:12, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
Just eat now and skip dinner. No picture then?Zigzig20s (talk) 22:09, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
@Zigzig20s and MarnetteD: No image yet; after some searches when I was working on the article, nothing was found under Creative Commons or public domain licensing yet. North America1000 00:08, 25 March 2017 (UTC)
I could check my local Whole Foods, but they don't even sell kamut.Zigzig20s (talk) 00:17, 25 March 2017 (UTC)
@Zigzig20s: It's possible "whole paycheck" may have it, or perhaps a health food store. North America1000 00:19, 25 March 2017 (UTC)
Haha. I still get my organic lentils and red quinoa from Whole Foods, but they have a limited selection. I can't find your banana pasta on Amazon either.Zigzig20s (talk) 00:29, 25 March 2017 (UTC)
@Zigzig20s: As a relatively newer product, it likely isn't available on a broad scale. After more searches, not even having any luck finding a usable image for banana flour. North America1000 00:45, 25 March 2017 (UTC)
Amazon does sell banana flour. I could ask my cleaning-lady to cook something with it--but is it worth it?Zigzig20s (talk) 00:55, 25 March 2017 (UTC)
@Zigzig20s: I haven't tried it yet, so don't know. North America1000 01:10, 25 March 2017 (UTC)
You have inspired me to create more articles about "real food." Years ago I used to do that a bit, for example sprouting has a picture I uploaded.Zigzig20s (talk) 01:12, 25 March 2017 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── @Zigzig20s: Nice to know. In addition to creating food articles, I have uploaded a fair amount of food-related content at Commons. Check out my uploads page there. These are largely Commons-usable images from Flickr. North America1000 01:15, 25 March 2017 (UTC)

  • Everyone should write new food articles once in a while on Wikipedia, or expand existing ones about foods they like. North America1000 01:26, 25 March 2017 (UTC)

Deletion of Victor Ike[edit]

Hello Northamerica1000 , Thanks for the reply. sorry i could'nt reply back earlier cos i did'nt wanna make the same mistake by writing you back through the appreciation section but big thanks to John of Reading, who told me to write you here, when i complained about not been able to reach your 'talk page' I'm sorry, and i disagree with the community determining that the subject does not presently meet Wikipedia's notability standards. and no disrespect, - But some of those i have been reading here on English wikipedia do not have good music profile like this subject and they have never worked with hollywood stars on their projects, if it's that easy but the subject they claimed does not meet the wikipedia's notability standards, has featured hollywood stars on his album project. you can listen to it here on itunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/im-on-fire/id1178350332 - He has performed on stage with Hollywood, European and African stars, Atleast he met DMX and the ruff ryders, he featured on his album project doing a concert he was invited to play with them, when he was on european tour. you can check his updates on facebook page:https://www.facebook.com/VictorIkeOfficial/, Instagram:https://www.instagram.com/victorikeofficial/, Twitter: https://twitter.com/victorikemusic, Myspace: https://myspace.com/victorikemusic, Youtube:https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCerZ45_2EVOxf0nduoGRHYw, http://www.artisttrove.com/artist/146677702056741/Victor+Ike - He co-produced a track in his album 'Can't live without U' Featuring Ruff ryders female rapper "KASH" with a famous hippop producer 'Dame Grease', who producers for DMX,L.O.X.,MASE,50 CENT,JAY-Z,T.I.,MAX B,FRENCH MONTANA,MARY J.BLIGE,KELIS,RICK ROSS.CURRENSY,LIL WAYNE,NORE,NAS,WAVE GANG,WU you can check him here on wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dame_Grease_production_discography - His Album "I'm on fire" is released in America by CD BABY(USA), presently released by Sony(Sony Dadc) in Asia pacific and coming out soon in Europe. I believe the subject meets wikipedia's notability standard and it will be unfair to remove the subject wikipedia.

I google the subject yesterday and i noticed some people are using his photo image to promote other Nigerian artist music, using the same name and confusing the subject followers with their illegal acts, which is unfair. I guess they were the ones that hacked his website, which i read was hacked on his updates. i had to write some of the sites and blogs using his photos to remove his photos from their blog. i also sent a message to the subject management yesterday of the illegal act cos i'm a fan of his job. you can check one of the subject photos on google, where he was carrying a guitar on his shoulder, when you click the photo link below, you see that they are using his photo to promote a different artist on many blogs, confussing this subject fans, which is not proper and illegal. https://www.ngospelmedia.com/2014/10/okaka-lyrics-by-frank-edwards-ft-victor.html

Please could you kindly verrify if the wikipedia users from Nigeria, that nominated the subject deletion from wikipedia on the history i read, are not playing an unfair game to block this subject from wikipedia, so that they could still continue to confuse the subject fans,like they almost confused me, promoting the other artist, giving people impression that he sang those songs, which was'nt him. logical, if the subject, who is an English Soul R&B singer, meets the French Wikipedia's notability standards, then i think there must be a problem somewhere with some of the community that gave decision. this is the subject french wikipedia link: https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Victor_Ike For User:CactusWriter, I'm still working to get better here on wikipedia and i'm so sorry if i got it wrong then, that's why i was a little careful not to reply your message fast, so that i would'nt break some of the many rules i'm seeing here on wikipedia. lol! thanks to John of Reading, who assisted. please i will appreciate it if you could undelete and restore the article, so that i could continue working on it and since you are a 'Pro' on wikipedia, lol! i will be glad if you and John of Reading also could help out in this article edit. this are some of the sources below of the article, i found on google.

Best regards - Tracy

  • Hello Tracy Williams: Most of the sources you posted above don't really meet WP:RS, in that blogs, personal websites, YouTube, etc. are not considered reliable sources for Wikipedia's purposes. I initially thought that the eventnews.tv source may pass muster, but I'm not so sure after reading the website's "about us" page, because in part, that page states that it is "an online news platform that create event and entertainment experiences by promoting and marketing events and showbiz. We are a fast growing event and entertainment news brand." It's possible that this site simply functions as a churnalism site.
If you'd like, I can userfy the deleted article to your user space. However, it you work on it and want it republished, I strongly recommend that you submit a revised article to Articles for creation, where your submission can be reviewed by an uninvolved, third party reviewer. An easy way to do this is to place {{Userspace draft}} atop the draft page and then select the "Submit your draft for review" link. North America1000 00:05, 25 March 2017 (UTC)

Draft move from userspace to draft space[edit]

Hello,

I'm just curious why you moved one of my draft articles from User:AHeneen/sandbox/Gulf carriers to Draft:Gulf carriers. Is there some policy change recently? Wikipedia:Drafts nor Help:Userspace draft says anything about when an article should be in the draft space and when it may be in the userspace. The former mentions that "[e]ditors may ... choose to create draft pages in their userspace". My only concern about the different article spaces is that drafts are usually deleted after a period of inactivity. That can be problematic. You can leave the Gulf carriers article in the draft space as I intend to finish it to move to the mainspace soon. AHeneen (talk) 04:16, 24 March 2017 (UTC)

  • Hello AHeneen: I typically move content from user space into draft space for inactive users whose drafts have not been edited for at least one year. In my checks, I noticed that your draft had not been edited in over a year, but overlooked somehow that you're actually an active user. Sorry for that. Please let me know if you have any further questions or if I can be of any assistance. North America1000 23:58, 24 March 2017 (UTC)

DYK for Mr. Trash Wheel[edit]

Updated DYK query.svg On 26 March 2017, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Mr. Trash Wheel, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that Mr. Trash Wheel removed 19 tons of garbage from Baltimore's Inner Harbor in one day? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Mr. Trash Wheel. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Mr. Trash Wheel), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.
