List of works by Auguste Carli
I would really appreciate some help. I created the above in my sandbox and have now moved it to wikipedia. Now I need to clear the sandbox for new work but each time I try to do this I end up removing the article from sandbox AND wikipedia. I would be grateful if you could advise the correct procedure. Thanks Weglinde (talk) 07:58, 5 May 2014 (UTC)
- @Weglinde: The article has already been moved, so anything you do to the sandbox shouldn't have any actual effect on the mainspace article. I have taken the liberty of removing the redirect that was created when you moved the article from your sandbox, which I think is the cause of your problems. In the future, I believe there is a box you can uncheck while moving an article to prevent the redirect from being created. Novusuna talk 19:34, 5 May 2014 (UTC)
I am really grateful. Thanks
- @Weglinde: One note, I was incorrect about there being an option to suppress the move. That does exist, but only for administrators. What you can do in the future, though, is to simply remove the #REDIRECT line from your sandbox after a move. Best of luck and happy editing. Novusuna talk 21:44, 11 May 2014 (UTC)
AfDs need more input
There are a couple of AfDs the desperately need additional high-quality input, either because they are relisted twice so far or have extremely low inputs so far. I thought it was high time I publicized them. Here they are:
- Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/DATE (command)
- Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Date (Unix)
- Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Nokia OS
- Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/VideoPad
Your input would be appreciated.
You may want to lock the page temporarily since it features as a suggested vandalism (in the alt text) on the popular xkcd web comic. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 06:51, 11 February 2015 (UTC)
- That isn't my call to make, but there's already a request on Wikipedia:Requests_for_page_protection. Novusuna talk 07:45, 11 February 2015 (UTC)
Ah, I always read db-a11 as needing a more explicit "hi everyone, here's a thing I made up" tone to it, maybe that's not the case. The article didn't read any more made up than any other ghost story, to me, and if it's a new user joining Wikipedia to write about it, picking the name of the ghost as their username wouldn't be surprising.
I always figured db-hoax was (since the template doesn't support any explanation) for cases where any neutral third party reading the article would call it as a hoax without needing to do a single piece of research - this reads more likely a pre-existing ghost story that needs to be rewritten without the POV that it all really happened, at first glance. But given that it seems to be a publicity piece for an upcoming Halloween event, I've no objections to you flagging it as db-hoax if you want. --McGeddon (talk) 19:23, 15 September 2015 (UTC)
- @McGeddon: Eh, I don't think it matters too much at this point. It looks pretty likely to be deleted once the PROD expires, as it's clearly a promotion/hoax that doesn't belong on the encyclopedia. Good work watching out for other new page patrollers to make sure we're doing it right. Novusuna talk 19:48, 15 September 2015 (UTC)

It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
