Thanks for offering to adopt

Thanx for offering to adopt me ...

... I'd practically given up in disgust after the baiting I was getting on the two pages I tried to contribute to.

For now, I'd like to add some info about the subjects Marv Meyer has written about, in the bio I created about him -- without getting it reverted.

Any help would be appreciated. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Hyperion357 (talkcontribs) 04:17, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

The reverts were done due to improper referencing. To place a proper reference, please place a <ref> tag before, and a </ref> tag arfer. This places a proper footnote at the right place (the place has already been marked), together with links between the statement and the footnote. Od Mishehu 08:09, 8 November 2007 (UTC)

Bertilo Wennergren declined speedy

Hello, I have declined the speedy deletion of this article as it asserts notability-- "the journal La Ondo de Esperanto named him as Esperantist of the Year for 2006 in recognition of his Plena Manlibro de Esperanta Gramatiko." Cheers, Dlohcierekim 16:01, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

A tag had been placed on this article requesting its speedy deletion from Wikipedia under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion (because of apparent failure to indicate how or why the subject was notable, i.e., why an article about that subject should be included.) I suggest that Bertilo Wennergren is notable not just because he is the subject of articles in the Esperanto and Swedish Wikipedias, but because he meets at least three criteria suggested for notability:
  1. The person has been the subject of a credible independent biography (Gramatikisto, rokisto aŭ perversulo?, by Sonja Kisa).
  2. The person has received significant recognized awards or honors (Esperantist of the Year for 2006)
  3. The person has made a widely recognized contribution that is part of the enduring historical record in his or her specific field (author of a 700-page scholarly reference grammar of Esperanto, Plena Manlibro de Esperanta Gramatiko -- a book which he is making freely available for download on the Internet) Objectivesea 00:44, 4 December 2007 (UTC)

Hello Od Mishehu, thanks for getting back to me. As to the article, I didn't copy anything. I summarised in my own words information I found and cited it as one would a university term paper.

Allogona taxobox

Hi, Od Mishehu. Thanks for checking out the Allogona page I just put up. I must admit, though, to being puzzled by your changes to the taxobox. Basically, you deleted the information relating to four taxonomic levels. You termed this a "correction". I don't know why. Does Wikipedia now have a maximum information content for taxoboxes?

I don't mean to sound argumentative (although I suppose I do seem that way). I have noticed, though, that gastropod genera use several sizes of taxoboxes. See Cypraea for a long one, Cepaea for a medium one, and Helix for a short one. I certainly prefer the greater amount of information in the long or medium versions, particularly since this information is not usually provided in the text. Do you mind if I put it back? Tim Ross·talk 16:15, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

According to Wikipedia:Taxobox_usage#Classification:
Taxoboxes should include all major ranks above the taxon described in the article, plus minor ranks that are important to understanding the classification of the taxon described in the article, or which are discussed in the article. Other minor ranks should be omitted.
For example, in the taxobox for the genus Formica, it's appropriate to include entries for tribe and subfamily, since those are an aid to understanding how Formica relates to other genera in the family Formicidae. But it wouldn't be appropriate to include the superorder Endopterygota, since all genera of ants are in that superorder; it isn't particularly interesting at this level.
Od Mishehu 17:55, 10 December 2007 (UTC)
I understand entirely, and certainly agree with Wikipedia:Taxobox_usage#Classification on this point. The actual application of that reference, though, is anything but clear cut. As you are no doubt aware, gastropods are a large and complex group. Kingdom, phylum, and class are certainly enough higher classification for almost anyone dealing with snails, but the details of the lower taxonomic levels, such as Systellommatophora vs. Basommatophora vs. Eupulmonata, or Acteophila vs. Trimusculiformes vs. Stylommatophora, provide a great deal of information about the specific mollusks, even if one is not particularly familiar with the family in question, which is often the case. The Orthurethra vs. Sigmurethra distinction is also important, whatever name one applies to that taxonomic level. In other words, I would argue that in the case of gastropods, these intermediate taxa are both interesting and important for basic understanding. It would be cleaner and neater to limit ourselves to just the major ranks, but when dealing with gastropods, we would be eliminating a lot of important information which can be provided at little real cost. Does that sound reasonable to you? Tim Ross·talk 22:38, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

WP:ACC archiving

FYI (unless you actually like doing it yourself), it seems the bot is back in operation, and you don't need to manually archive anymore.

Hi Od, I just noticed you created User:UfukU, and was wondering if you really thought it an appropriate username?

Lynn valley elementary

I noticed at this articles AfD page Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Lynn valley elementary that it had been speedy deleted under the A7 criteria, which states "An article about a real person, group of people, band, club, company, organisation, or web content that does not indicate why its subject is important or significant". I don't believe this covers schools, in all likelihood it would not have survived the AfD but it really should have been allowed to run for longer than 1hour and 19 minutes. My regards to you.

Thread port

Hoaxes qualify for speedy, do they not? Here's the giveaway: It is sometimes referred to as the culp-hole in honor of the artist who first named this important orifice. Zero relevant Google hits for any permutation of culp-hole or thread port and not-so-subtle scatalogical joke. I've been doing fiber crafts for over 30 years. Sorted hundreds of stubs tonight. This one leapt out; it's garbage. DurovaCharge! 09:54, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

From WP:HOAX:
Note that hoaxes are generally not speedy deletion candidates. It is not enough for just one or two editors to investigate a hoax. There have been cases in the past where something has been thought to have been a hoax by several editors, but has turned out to be true, and merely obscure.
From the list of non-criteria at WP:CSD:
  • Hoaxes. If even remotely plausible, a suspected hoax article should be subjected to further scrutiny in a wider forum. Note that "blatant and obvious hoaxes and misinformation" are subject to speedy deletion as vandalism.
So hoaxes are not speedy-deletable. עוד מישהו Od Mishehu 11:59, 19 December 2007 (UTC)
I see. Okay, going the regular route then. Thanks for explaining it. DurovaCharge! 16:24, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

Please explain

I left this message at Ten Pound Hammer's talk page. He replied that it was you who deleted an article 90 minutes after it was nominated for deletion at AfD. If an article is nominated and up for discussion, how can you delete that quickly? It seems to me that this kind of deletion subverts the purpose of AfD. Why should I not nominate this for overturn at Deletion Review? I doubt I'd want to keep the article anyway, but I know I want articles at AfD to get a fair hearing. I'd be interested in your response before taking this further. Noroton (talk) 02:47, 20 December 2007 (UTC)

TenPoundHammer tagged it for speedy deletion under criteria for speedy deletion number 7 for articles - which says the following:
An article about a real person, organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content that does not indicate why its subject is important or significant.
Looking at the page, I decided that it fits the definition of this CSD, so I speedy deleted it. עוד מישהו Od Mishehu 05:56, 20 December 2007 (UTC)
The last sentence of A7 seems to forbid just what you did:
Other article types are not eligible for deletion by this criterion. If controversial, as with schools, list the article at Articles for deletion instead.
Please reverse the deletion and relist at AfD. Noroton (talk) 16:24, 20 December 2007 (UTC)
This sentence wasn't there at the time - see this version which doesn't mention schools. This was added about 30 1/2 hours later, see this diff. עוד מישהו Od Mishehu 17:01, 20 December 2007 (UTC)
Oh, I stand corrected, and I appreciate your responses. But why should the speedy deletion process trump an already-started AfD? Once an article is listed at AfD, other editors start looking it over and investing time in it. It seems to me it's a waste of everybody's time to speedy delete once that AfD process is started. (If there had already been some support for keeping the school, speedy deleting it would have been much worse.) In addition, deletions of school articles tend to be controversial (even some elementary schools get kept), and isn't the speedy deletion process meant for cases in which there is a clear consensus or clearly delineated policy that forces deletion?

A List of iSCSI Software Targets

Hi. Could I ask why you refused the speedy delete for the above article ? I requested the delete as an A3 which is "Any article (other than disambiguation pages) consisting only of external links, category tags and "see also" sections, a rephrasing of the title, attempts to correspond with the person or group named by its title, chat-like comments, and/or images."

You seem to misunderstand this criterion. It states "No indication of importance/significance.

First of all, merry Christmas. As I saw your edit on category:Suicides by Asain-American and visited your pages which indicate no authority, I would've reverted your edit. But for precaution for myself, after looking through WP:LOA and fining your name there, I tagged the category with CFD per your suggestion. However, why don't you put an admin sign on your pages at all?

Wikipedia:Upload

Hi! Could you please take another look at the protected edit request at Wikipedia talk:Upload#Preload description and use rationale templates? This change is very important as it will make a significant dent in the number of images uploaded without source information. Five users have come out to support a change like this. The only "opposition" is Carnildo noting that he will have to tweak his ImageTaggingBot to understand that empty information templates do not actually provide source information. Carnildo has not really argued against the change.

Besides, if it really becomes a problem, then the change can be reverted with no ill effects. —Remember the dot (talk) 07:29, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

User:UBX/NDC and other userboxes

Can I point out to you that User:UBX was explicitly created to host migrated userboxes - read the userpage. Userboxes in this user's userspace should certainly not be deleted as "vandalism". Hut 8.5 11:57, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

I see there that Mets501 created the account so that he can place userboxes there. He does this using an other account of his, but this isn't blanket permission for anyone who wants to do it. If you can show that Niaz had permission, or if Mets501 states that Niaz may place those pages there, I will happily undelete them. עוד מישהו Od Mishehu 12:10, 27 December 2007 (UTC)
I have undeleted them. Mets501 has given people blanket permission to place userboxes in the userspace of User:UBX, and plenty of people have done so. Please use another deletion mechanism rather than speedy deletion if you want them deleted, especially as this userbox is not explicit vandalism. Hut 8.5 12:15, 27 December 2007 (UTC)
Can you please give me a link to where Mets501 gave such permission? עוד מישהו Od Mishehu 12:16, 27 December 2007 (UTC)
The sole reason why I created User:UBX was to host userboxes userfied via the Userbox Migration., It was created to host userboxes migrated via the Userbox Migration. both on User:UBX. People have been adding userboxes to this user's userspace for almost a year now. If you want clarification, I suggest you post on User talk:Mets501. Hut 8.5 12:21, 27 December 2007 (UTC)
I said explicit permission. This statement only explicitly states that Mets501, and his bot, are allowed to do it. I have no doubt that this is, in fact, his alternite account, but where's the explicit permission for other users to do it? עוד מישהו Od Mishehu 12:26, 27 December 2007 (UTC)
Did I get it right now? Aditya(talkcontribs) 12:36, 27 December 2007 (UTC)
Yes. עוד מישהו Od Mishehu 12:37, 27 December 2007 (UTC)
Though it's a pointless debate and people are creating userboxes on UBX space for a longtime - still to make this issue clear, I requested Mets501 to visit this page and express his view regarding this matter. Cheers - Niaz(Talk • Contribs) 19:09, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

Hi. I originally placed this on the userpage as an invitation for others to create userboxes in User:UBX's userspace, until I removed it due to complaints. The trend has been (and I approve of the trend) to just go ahead and create the userboxes. So Hut 8.5, you can feel free to continue creating the userboxes, and I'd ask Od Mishehu to delete undelete (sorry, that was a typo) the ones he has already deleted. Sorry for the controversy. —METS501 (talk) 19:24, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

This is a blog which has, as I posted, attracted praise from a variety of other blogs in similar spheres, the author has just appeared on national TV, and it's coming up for half a million views. If Girl With A One-Track Mind and Belle de Jour (writer) are notable, I strongly suggest that this one is too, particularly as the stub category I carefully sorted it into has been described as "eminently populable". This is exactly the sort of thing that should be going in there, IMHO.

In terms of the specific criteria under WP:WEB, it fulfils (1) per the comments on sites independent of itself which I linked in the article and the Channel 4 show which I also linked.

Thanks. Nmg20 (talk) 16:37, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

Oh - and it was nominated for an award at the 2007 erotic awards, which gets it half-way to meeting criterion (2) on WP:WEB, too. Nmg20 (talk) 16:51, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

List of past Magic Kingdom attractions

No incoming links on Wikipedia doesn't mean that no one will come looking for it by other means.

That makes no sense: it's not linked from anywhere nor is it an obvious search term or phrase, so how, exactly, is someone going to "come look for it"? Other than the "Random article" link, that is. --Calton | Talk 23:14, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

Someone may have seen this article under its old name, and left a link to it on some other site. The "incoming links" only lists links from on-site, not links from off-site. עוד מישהו Od Mishehu 06:14, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

User:Magnus Blaze (rock band)

Okay, now you're being ridiculous: it's an obvious advertisement, not to mention the obvious violation regarding Meta:Role accounts. --Calton | Talk 01:45, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Role account userpage isn't covered by any CSD, and then sentence "Magnus Blaze are a four-piece rock band from Ayrshire, Scotland" is descriptive, not an ad. עוד מישהו Od Mishehu 06:12, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletions of redirects

When something doesn't apply to db-redirtypo because of a date please use the db-redirmisnomer to delete it. These articles uses quotes only for emphasis which is against Wikipedia's policy. Please be bold and don't just decline the tags. Yesterday, i tagged 100 redirects for deletion and they were deleted with no problem. -- Magioladitis (talk) 13:05, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Looking at the text of R3, it only applies to recently created redirects - both parts. I, as a new admin, won't touch any between 1 and 12 months old; I think that 1 month is recent enough, and 12 months is too long ago. Other admins may disagree, but that's how I understand it. עוד מישהו Od Mishehu 13:08, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
I was searching the criteria yesterday. I can't find something that fits exactly in the case. Do you suggest to Rfd them? As i said yesterday i had no problem to delete (exactly) 100 redirects with R3, maybe i was lucky and all the articles were recently created. -- Magioladitis (talk) 13:09, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
That may be a good idea. Keep in mind that frequently, there are pages/redirects/images which there is no real reason to keep, but which aren't speedy-able - recently there was a case of a user who uploaded several free-use images for A7-deletable articles, for example - and the best solution in such cases is probably to XfD such pages. עוד מישהו Od Mishehu 13:12, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
Do you know how can I suggest a new speedy deletion criterion for redirects? I want something for "Redirect that uses quotes just to emphasize". -- Magioladitis (talk) 13:15, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
Ok. I put my suggestion here: Wikipedia:Criteria for speedy deletion/New criteria. -- Magioladitis (talk) 13:44, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

And how do you verify that? Dekisugi (talk) 13:19, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

To deal with speedy requests you don't need too much of a depth analysis, but the Archibald Prize 2006 finalists article does support this claim, and it hasn't been edited since September. עוד מישהו Od Mishehu 13:43, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the Names!

Thanks for taking care of the Amanda/Amanda (disambiguation) bits! I appreciate the help! VigilancePrime (talk) 19:33, 2 January 2008 (UTC) Happy New Year!

A question

Thanks for the heartwarming advice! Where on Wikipedia can I find an analogy of its structure? I don't get some of the geeky terms like namespace and portal. And while I'm thinking about this, is there a difference between clicking the + on the top of the discussion page and adding your comment at the bottom with "edit page"? Thanks again!

I'm Game

Fair enough that CSD#A7 doesn't cover the nonsense in this article. I've been away from wikipedia and misapplied the tag. I will say, however, that no matter the bureaucracy that's imparted in this case, the article doesn't stand a snowball's chance in hell. --Mud4t (talk) 07:04, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

This is a question of running the AfD. To the best of my understanding, only someone with significant experience with AfD discussions should implement SNOW, so I shouldn't. עוד מישהו Od Mishehu 07:11, 3 January 2008 (UTC)
