Proposed deletion of Operation Sweeny[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Operation Sweeny has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Unreferenced since 2004. Fails WP:N. The best sources I could find are [1] and [2], both trivial mentions.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

I decided to redirect instead of deleting; let me know if you disagree or think there is enough notability for a standalone article. --Cerebellum (talk) 21:08, 1 January 2017 (UTC)
Please feel free to delete it. Paul, in Saudi (talk) 01:41, 2 January 2017 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 8[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited List of defunct newspapers of the United States, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Allentown and Barre, Vermont (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Drug-related deaths[edit]

Hi Paul. You previously asked how you could help out with this project. If you've got the time I have an easier way you could do that now. So when I did the first major expansion of this list in 2010 I got the potential candidates by searching through Category:Drug-related deaths. As you may recall I added every potential candidate to the article's talk page and then eventually added them all to the list when I found sources. As you may have seen from the article's talk page, I have recently completed the first half of this feat again, going through and finding all the people added to this category since 2010 that are not on the list. As of posting this, there are now exactly 150 potential candidates to add.

I am going to go through and add these people to the list again. I aim to add at least 5 people to the list per day but even so this will take a while and any help would be good. Basically just pick someone from the list of potential candidates and search for a source that they died of an overdose or acute intoxication. Some of the people already actually have sources listed at their articles; feel free to simply search through the list for these people that already have sources. That's what I plan to do; get the easy stuff out of the way and then come back for the harder ones later. The sources found at other articles normally aren't formatted in the accepted manner at the list, but don't stress about making the references perfect as even if I have to go through and make adjustments to every source you add, that still takes less time than me adding the entire entry from scratch. You only really have to make sure the source is reliable and that what is added to the article is backed up by the source. For example quite frequently I find a Wikipedia article that says someone died of, say, a heroin overdose, and provides a reference, but when I open the reference it might actually say 'suspected heroin overdose' or just 'suspected overdose'. Just make sure the cause of death added to the list is backed up exactly by the source. Anyway give it a go if you've got the time but no worries if you can't help.

Howdy Freicorp, I am on vacation in the US and so am up to my hips with family for the next few weeks. In truth, it seems the only help I give you is my emotional support.Paul, in Saudi (talk) 19:29, 17 April 2017 (UTC)
No worries. I still appreciate that kind of support. Have a great time with your family. :) Freikorp (talk) 21:59, 17 April 2017 (UTC)
Hi Paul. It ended up taking me less time than anticipated to go through all the new potential candidates. Unfortunately the featured list nomination still hasn't gotten much attention yet. If you could weigh in at the discussion with whether you support, oppose, or have any comments regarding the article's improvement, that would be appreciated. See the nomination here. Thanks. Freikorp (talk) 08:38, 24 April 2017 (UTC)
Hi Paul. Thanks for commenting at the nomination. It looks like the overall nomination has stagnated a bit, mainly because it took so much time to address initial concerns and suggestions, but if nothing else these suggestions have helped me improve the article. I've immensely happy with how it is now. I'm anticipating this nomination failing but now that it's been improved so much I anticipate if I nominate it again in a couple months it will have a much higher chance of passing. Anyway just thought I'd keep you in the loop with what's happening. Incidentally this whole process has inspired me to create two new articles that tie in with this one, List of deaths from legal euthanasia and assisted suicide and List of executions by lethal injection. I'm happy with the first one for now as I think pretty much everyone to date is covered but I'm still in the process of a major expansion of the lethal injection list. Thought you might be interested in having a look. :) Freikorp (talk) 07:48, 5 May 2017 (UTC)
You might not believe it, but I have asked a couple of friends to upvote the list. I suspect I need to get more an better friends. Paul, in Saudi (talk) 13:30, 5 May 2017 (UTC)
Oh I appreciate the thought, but specifically asking people to support the nomination would be considered to fall under Wikipedia:Canvassing, which isn't allowed. By all means contact people and ask them to comment on the nomination, a lack of commentators is generally a problem at nominations like this, but don't ask for support. Also whether or not the article is promoted isn't determined solely by the number of support votes or the ratio of sopport to oppose votes, the support needs to be based on the article meeting the criteria for promotion, which in this case is Wikipedia:Featured list criteria. So several editors who aren't experienced with this process saying they support the nomination but not specifically stating why probably aren't going to have as much weight as one editor who opposes on the grounds it fails one of the criteria, and explains in detail why it doesn't meet the criteria. If you have any more questions about how this all works feel free to ask. :) Freikorp (talk) 17:35, 5 May 2017 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Hi Paul. If case you hadn't noticed, I just thought I'd let you know the drug page has been accepted as a featured article. I still intend to work on it in the future, trying to find sources to replace 'unknown' and 'unspecified' fields where possible, but for now I'm working on a couple other projects, and overall I'm extremely pleased with how the article is looking. :) Freikorp (talk) 00:34, 23 July 2017 (UTC)

Table in Crime in Philadelphia[edit]

Hi -- I saw you were having some trouble with the table, so I fixed it; please check I got the numbers in the right place. You might want to try Visual Editor, which makes working with tables a lot easier. Let me know if I messed up or if you have questions.
