Reminder: your work notes on Talk:Bill 28 (British Columbia)[edit]

I moved them to User:Ottawahitech/Bill 28 (British Columbia) notes. Please keep the talk page for discussion of the article. Thanks. World's Lamest Critic (talk) 17:07, 4 January 2017 (UTC)

Quality C for BC Transplant Society[edit]

Howdy @Ottawahitech , You just assessed as C-level Quality for the new BC Transplant Society. And too often there are negative comments by wikipedia users. So hope is okay to say THank You for being first contributor after my creation of the article. And also Level C that says needs more information and references is very accurate so I am thankful for your assessment. And also adding categories to the Talk page. I was hoping health editors with more knowledge about the subject or sector would be contributing sooner. So am glad you added something.

Cheers ! Canuckle (talk) 00:27, 6 January 2017 (UTC)

Use of talk pages[edit]

I removed a question you posed on Talk:Homelessness in Vancouver because talk pages exist to discuss the article, not the subject. Perhaps you can ask your question at one of the reference desks instead. World's Lamest Critic (talk) 03:12, 8 January 2017 (UTC)

@World's Lamest Critic: You have blanked Talk:Bill 28 (British Columbia) several times and refused to participate in the thread that I started there: Talk:Bill_28_(British_Columbia)#Repeated blanking of this talk-page. I believe you are deliberately being disruptive and ask you to please stop. My talkpage should not be used for these types of messages. Ottawahitech (talk) 17:36, 8 January 2017 (UTC)please ping me
As I've explained here twice already, I moved your notes to a subpage. I attempted to discuss this situation with you here, but you did not respond. Please leave the talk page for discussion of the article itself. World's Lamest Critic (talk) 23:02, 8 January 2017 (UTC)

Overlinking[edit]

Proposal to speedily rename category[edit]

Please see my proposal to speedily rename Category:Companies of Canada established in 1972 to Category:Canadian companies established in 1972 per C2C: Hugo999 (talk) 12:09, 12 January 2017 (UTC)


Disruptive editing warning[edit]

Please stop with disruptive edits such as this: [[1]]. Faking ignorance that you don't know where it goes and asking other editors to clean up after you is unacceptable. 2605:8D80:687:8040:E50B:A21E:AF0D:66AB (talk) 17:39, 14 January 2017 (UTC)

Your edits/my revert[edit]

Listen there isn't a campaign to silence you here. The problem is low quality edits. If you look at your last homeless edit, it is of poor quality and is re-wording a news story. There isn't any meaningful information being added. If you are having such problems with reverts and apparently having your stuff deleted maybe it is time to re-evaluate and review the WP:GNG? SuperMarioWikiEditor (talk) 10:45, 18 January 2017 (UTC)

Again please engage in a discussion on this. Stop shopping for someone else's opinion and provide some justification on your own please. You don't appear to be interested in collaboration, perhaps this isn't the place for you. SuperMarioWikiEditor (talk) 19:50, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

Please stop adding "Economy of ..." categories to homelessness articles[edit]

You participated in the discussion at Talk:Homelessness in Vancouver about adding the category "economy of Vancouver". There was consensus not to keep that category. I think it is reasonable to assume that the same applies to every other article on homelessness. When working collaboratively, it is important to accept that others may not agree with you and to go along with the consensus. Thanks. World's Lamest Critic (talk) 16:52, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

Airports[edit]

Hey bud - nice job tagging all those airports for WikiProject Canada! Cheers, PKT(alk) 22:33, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

January 2017[edit]

Please stop making disruptive edits, as you did at Talk:Bill_28_(British_Columbia).

If you continue to disrupt Wikipedia, you may be blocked from editing. You appear to be engaged in an edit war. Please discuss instead of reverting. SuperMarioWikiEditor (talk) 00:28, 23 January 2017 (UTC)

Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia. A page you recently created may not conform to some of Wikipedia's guidelines for new pages, so it will be removed shortly (if it hasn't been already). Please use the sandbox for any tests, and consider using the Article Wizard. For more information about creating articles, you may want to read Your first article. You may also want to read our introduction page to learn more about contributing. You are now creating pages, redirecting them to other pages and linking your newly created page. This is completely ridiculous and it is obvious you are not adhering to WP:NPOV. SuperMarioWikiEditor (talk) 11:57, 25 January 2017 (UTC) SuperMarioWikiEditor (talk) 11:57, 25 January 2017 (UTC)

This is about warring at Talk:Bill 28 (British Columbia). Per this comment, I'm letting you know that you and the other party can both be blocked under the edit warring policy. I urge you to reply at the noticeboard and agree to stop reverting the set of notes until a consensus is reached on where to locate this material. Thank you, EdJohnston (talk) 18:41, 25 January 2017 (UTC)
The complaint has been closed with warnings to both you and World's Lamest Critic. You are risking a block if you add or remove the disputed talk page material again until consensus about it is reached. One option to consider is to put it in a collapse box. Thank you, EdJohnston (talk) 02:27, 26 January 2017 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Ruth Ibanez[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Ruth Ibanez requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 12:55, 28 January 2017 (UTC)

@Narutolovehinata5: You have tagged this page within two minutes of its creation. Have you done wp:Before? Ottawahitech (talk) 13:01, 28 January 2017 (UTC)please ping me

Yes I did, and it appears that she has not been covered in reliable sources (except CNN's iReport, although I am not aware if that is considered a reliable source). Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 13:12, 28 January 2017 (UTC)

ANI notification[edit]

It doesn't look like anyone alerted you about this yet:

Information icon There is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding an issue with which you may have been involved.

I'm just the messenger. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 12:28, 1 February 2017 (UTC)

February 2017[edit]

Stop icon
You have been blocked indefinitely from editing for an apparent long-term unwillingness or inability to follow Wikipedia's basic content policies. A user with your experience should not still be creating pages that qualify for speedy deletion, and there is no reasonable way you are not aware at this point of what the minimum standards for articles are, yet you routinely ignore them, and seemingly deliberately flaunt them. Doing this a few times as a new editor is one thing, doing it for nine and a half years is something else. Users with this much experience are usually the ones helping others make articles better not creating more work for those who maintain this project. The core issue here is the creation of new pages, and given how long this has been a problem I can't see a reasonable path to unblocking that doesn't involve some sort of restriction on you doing so in the future. If you think there are good reasons why you should be unblocked, you may request an unblock by first reading the guide to appealing blocks, then adding the following text to the bottom of your talk page: {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}.  Beeblebrox (talk) 17:38, 1 February 2017 (UTC)
I've also taken the liberty of archiving 2015/2016, just for ease of readability of this page during any upcoming discussion of this block. Beeblebrox (talk) 02:45, 2 February 2017 (UTC)

for your kind motivation to (still) categorize (India-related) women-related content[edit]

Dear Ottawahitech, I highly appreciated the (mutual) 'categorization-motivation' in 2016/17, and truly hope that the unexpected Wikipedia-block (at least for me personally) will not last indefinitely. My best wishes and greetings,

Bearcat (talk) 23:12, 24 July 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for notifying me of this discussion user:Bearcat. I hope you also notify the creator of Category:Lebanese businesswomen whose category you co-nominated in the same discussion. I know the editor already commented in the cfd, but in the interest of getting more editors involved in this discussion it would not hurt to follow established wiki-tradition.
Since I have been blocked from editing wikipedia I’ll try and clarify the difference between Category:Businesswomen and Category:Women in business here where I am still allowed to edit. I would appreciate it if someone such as User:BrownHairedGirl, User:Justforthefun17, or User:WikiVirusC who have already commented in the cfd would post a link from there to here.
Category:Businesswomen is a collection of biographies of women who are/were in business, while Category:Women in business is a more general category that also contains articles that are not biographies, such as Gender representation on corporate boards of directors, Women's Business Ownership Act, Women in cooperatives, Women's Technology Cluster, Women in cooperatives, Zonta International, Women of Krusha e Madhe, Women in business and more.
Readers who are looking for a biography of a businesswoman would be better served by a category exclusively dedicated to house such articles, while readers who are looking for general information about the the subject of women in business would find this information in Category:Women in business and not vice versa.
Category:Businesswomen is a legitimate child of Category:Businesspeople and Category:Women by occupation while Category:Women in business should not be a not a child of those categories. If the categories are merged will the merged category be forced to inherit this parentage? If so it will mean that Gender representation on corporate boards of directors (for example) will turn up when a reader follows the links from Category:Businesspeople which currently contains only biographies of businesspeople. If this parentage is omitted then what is the purpose of categorization?
In short I cannot see how merging these two categories is in the interest of those trying to find information about these two distinct topics. Ottawahitech (talk) 04:26, 30 July 2017 (UTC)

Hi User:Greenwoodtree, you nominated for deletion Category: Women criminals (which has been emptied) saying it was a duplicate of Category: Female criminals (to which articles and categories have been added). Here is why those categories are not duplicate:
Ottawahitech, so there should be "female criminals", "women criminals", "male criminals", and presumably "men criminals"? Is that right? Because there are transmen as well as transwomen and your argument suggests that transmen should not be in "male criminals". So they would go in "men criminals". Is that right? World's Lamest Critic (talk) 04:22, 11 August 2017 (UTC)
…Proper categorization of articles helps the community achieve one of its goals which is to improve the quality of articles on Wikipedia (Is this described anywhere as a goal?). One of the mechanisms to achieve improvement is the use of wikiprojects to collect articles within a certain topic to allow editors to easily locate articles of interest to them. Look at the talkpage of the category you want to delete and you will see that it was added to wikiproject women. This means that all the articles included in this category can safely be added to wikiproject women. This allows editors who prefer to work on articles about women to more easily find articles to improve.
However the shear number of articles on Wikipedia is a hinderance for collecting articles and placing them in the appropriate wikiprojects. It requires a huge effort on the part of human editors and is tedious work that most editors shun. With the use of BOTS the addition of articles to the appropriate wikiprojects can be achieved more speedily and consistently. Cats that are well named can be a huge help in this respect. For example an article belonging to Category: Women criminals obviously belongs to WikiProject Women, and a BOT can easily be programmed to find all the articles belonging to categories that have titles that include the word Women. However when the article belongs to Category: Female criminals it may end up in Wikipedia:WikiProject Biology if left up to a BOT.
I would like to thank you, User:Greenwoodtree, for inviting me to participate in the CFD, but since I am blocked indefinitely from editing wikipedia, I am unable to add my comments to the discussion page and would appreciate it if you, or the other participant User: Dimadick would post a link to my comments from CFD discussion.
