Can I get some time to finish what I am doing without everything being deleted??sarindam7 (talk) 17:45, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

You didn't think you could create ~20 articles without content and that they then wouldn't be deleted, did you? If the article's topic satisfies Wikipedia's critera for inclusion, write a stub first and then create the page, with the stub. Not the other way around. Plrk (talk) 17:48, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
The main article (that I created ) is being fragmented here. Just have a look at List of medical abbreviations. Fragmentation is being done so that more content can be added.sarindam7 (talk) 17:58, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
Instruments used in Microbiological sterilization and disinfection....have a look? Care to remove the deletion tag??sarindam7 (talk) 18:35, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
I can't remove deletion tags, I am not an administrator. However, some admin did. Plrk (talk) 19:21, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
Thankyou any waysarindam7 (talk) 19:44, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
No problem, I guess Plrk (talk) 19:53, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
FWIW, anyone (except the author of the article) can remove a speedy tag. You dont have to be an admin. DGG (talk) 01:26, 30 May 2008 (UTC)
Is that so? Then why does that template exist? Plrk (talk) 11:00, 30 May 2008 (UTC)
Ah, I understand. OK, thanks for pointing that out - I had no idea. Plrk (talk) 11:05, 30 May 2008 (UTC)


I've done quite a bit of work on the Illogicopedia article, how do you think it's coming along? Does it meet the guidelines you mentioned? --—Mr. MetalFlower · chat · what I done did do 18:01, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

Unfortunately not - you have failed to show non-trivial mentions in third-party reliable sources. I don't think Illogicopedia is notable enough for a wikipedia article (yet?), it is as simple as that. Plrk (talk) 11:28, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of The Look (band)

Hello. If you recall, you put a speedy deletion tag on The Look (band) (which I created), under criterion A7. I feel that the article had significant claim to notability, saying that they had a #6 hit in England. In my opinion, the article was plenty significant enough to be on Wikipedia. Rdbrewster 18:47, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

Yes, you are right and I was wrong. My apologies. Plrk (talk) 11:32, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

Spelling corrections (Dependant to Dependent)

Hi. I noticed that you have been running spelling corrections through AWB. Unfortunately dependant is a valid spelling in British English, as opposed to the US spelling of dependent. This is acknowledged over at Wiktionary. Changing spellings on British English articles to conform with American spellings should be avoided if possible. If this correction was based on an automated list, please report this issue to the list's owner. Regards. Road Wizard (talk) 14:19, 14 June 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for informing me, I will see to this immediately. Plrk (talk) 14:28, 14 June 2008 (UTC)

David Welsh

I just checked and spotted the value of the unvandalised article. Unfortunately I used the term, "Anon Ediot" which could be construed as meaning you - obviously it wasn't meant that way, because it would mean me, too, for putting the prod on the page. Apologies. --Richhoncho (talk) 19:18, 14 June 2008 (UTC)

Just to be clear, the notable David Welsh (Scots religious leader) was completely replaced by the less-than-notable Ontario teacher, and I see that the article has now been restored (it started life as a copy of the entry in Nuttall). I assume no more action is needed. David Brooks (talk) 20:35, 14 June 2008 (UTC)


How do you post a artical as a stub?--C.R.Stinnett (talk) 03:02, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

You make sure the article topic satisfy Wikipedia's critera for inclusion, then you just create the article by going to it and pressing "create this article". To mark it as a stub, you mark it {{stub}}, or one of the appropriate categorized stub templates. Plrk (talk) 03:12, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

Typo-hunting and foreign languages

Hello Plrk, it's great that you're correcting typos on Wikipedia, but I do hope that you make sure that you inspect each typo correction by eye before you carry it out, and avoid corrections in foreigh languages that you don't know well. This will prevent errors like the "she" for "seh'", seen at Kindertotenlieder. Thanks very much. Yours truly, Opus33 (talk) 15:17, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, I avoid all corrections in foreign languages. I've skipped dozens of german "seh"s. Must have missed that one, thank you for reverting me! Plrk (talk) 15:32, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
Thank you, Plrk. Opus33 (talk) 16:41, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

Earthquake magnitudes

In the Tsunami article you changed Mw to MW (megawatts). It was rather unclear, but these were intended to be Mw, Moment magnitude scale. Just something to watch out for. Mikenorton (talk) 15:45, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

Interesting. I will take care to avoid repeating this. Plrk (talk) 15:46, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

non-english articles

are not necessarily 'nonsense'. I'd already declined the speedy once and listed it for translation. TravellingCarithe Busy Bee 17:26, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

True, but in this case close enough. I have listed it as "blatant advertising" instead, please see Talk:Antalyada emlak. Plrk (talk) 17:36, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
fair enough, I tend to wait for a translation, but I won't decline the speedy this time. Let someone else comment on it. Thanks for letting me know. TravellingCarithe Busy Bee 17:38, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
Ironically, someone else deleted it as patent nonsense. Plrk (talk) 17:39, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
Saw that, their choice. I took care of the talk page -- thanks for tagging that since it probably would have been missed. TravellingCarithe Busy Bee 17:41, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
I take great care of my watchlisted pages :) Plrk (talk) 17:42, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
I try, however my watchlist needs to go on a diet for me to be more effective. TravellingCarithe Busy Bee 20:12, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
As I add all articles I run the spellchecking on to the list, I've got over 1,300 pages on it. Indeed, it is not very effective - but if I didn't, I wouldn't notice when I am reverted. Plrk (talk) 21:32, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
I still have it watch every article I edit, but no longer delete. I also unwatch some when they show up later on my watchlist when I realise I've made a tiny touch and don't really care about the article's outcome. I want it below 3,000. Can go through and purge old AfDs but at times I find myself referring back to them. TravellingCarithe Busy Bee 00:48, 17 June 2008 (UTC)
3000! I though I was absurd at 1200. But then, my idea is to do my best for an article and then let things take their fate & others have a chance. The main things I keep watchlisted is where I want to check the additions of spam. DGG (talk) 03:47, 17 June 2008 (UTC)
I hereby declare my talkpage Inoffical Admin Casual Hangout Page! Plrk (talk) 04:24, 17 June 2008 (UTC)
Sorry, Plrk, I think User talk:Keeper76 is a tad ahead of you in that respect. DGG, I know I took your suggestion at the meet-up to heart. I'm still trying to get it down from a) all the backlog work I did and b) all the museum articles I'd manually tagged for the project. Those I'm having a harder time getting rid of because I feel I'll remember to work on them if they're on my watchlist. TravellingCarithe Busy Bee 15:07, 17 June 2008 (UTC)
Damn. Plrk (talk) 01:29, 19 June 2008 (UTC)
Upon closer examination, I see that Keeper76 is an admin... so his talk page doesn't count. I win! Plrk (talk) 01:39, 19 June 2008 (UTC)
Ahh sorry I parsed your sentence wrong, so you win. He'll be happy to hear that -- and share some of the volume. :) TravellingCarithe Busy Bee 02:08, 19 June 2008 (UTC)
I can't say it was the clearest prose I've written, really. Plrk (talk) 02:16, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

FRA lagen

Hi, Pisk:

Haha, I laughed at your message :)

In fairness, two things:

1. Your English is excellent. Since you are a Swede, this is not really surprising :) 2. "Integritet" is, really, impossible to translate. There is no single English word that fits, so I'm left using a "dog's breakfast" of "equivalents" that don't really do the word justice. But I'm trying to get the essential intent and meaning across.

Anyway, that's why they're refinements and not something more sweeping.

I think it's vital that news of this get out, since Sweden is a role model in the world and not the first place on Earth you'd expect to see THIS kind of legislation being passed.

Give my best to Fredrik HEILfeldt. --Rhombus (talk) 16:38, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

Thank you! If I'll ever meet Reinfeldt, I'll say hello from you. You should know though, during the FRA debate and vote, he was in Belgium watching the Sweden-Russia soccer game, with Prince Carl Philip.[1] (Yes, this will be mentioned in the article - soon.) Plrk (talk) 00:29, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

TPB section in FRA law


Couldn't you add some references for the media attention you claim TPB's stance has received? Plrk (talk) 15:00, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

I was holding out for some English references, as non-English ones are inconvenient (though not invalid) to use and to read, but that's fair enough. Here's one, or do you think some of these would do? --Kizor 15:15, 26 June 2008 (UTC)
I can find references myself; I want you to actually add them to the article ;) I know non-English references are inconvenient, but I use them anyway: just look at the references list at FRA law. Plrk (talk) 15:24, 26 June 2008 (UTC)
True dat. I also forgot to mention that classic cop-out argument: Preferring to wait for high-quality English sources to come available. I guess I'm less high-strung than the debate. Anyway, there's a bit more stuff in the article now. These links (subject) came up in the Finnish media, is there anything you can do with those? --Kizor 16:24, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for correcting my Miss Nigeria typos! (talk) 13:38, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

RfA Review

Hello Plrk. I've noticed that you have a completed set of responses to the RfA Review question phase at User:Plrk/RfA review , but they don't seem to be included on the list of responses here. If you've completed your responses, please can you head to Wikipedia:RfA Review/Question/Responses and add a link to them at the bottom of the list so that they get included in the research. We have a closing date of midnight UTC on 1st July, so please add your link before this date. Once again, thank you for taking the time to participate in the Question Phase of RfA Review.Gazimoff WriteRead 15:43, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

I don't have a completed set of responses, User:Plrk/RfA review is empty. Perhaps I would have written some responses if 1) I ever actually had participated in the RfA process, and 2) wasn't called BASEPAGENAME. Thank you for your concern though. But I'll bet you won't read this, you must have posted the same message on hundreds of pages... Plrk (talk) 01:30, 29 June 2008 (UTC)
Aye, it was 63 pages, although I did add every single one to my watchlist in case a user responded. As we were coming to the end of the question phase, I felt it was appropriate to let editors who looked like they were participating know. I used {{BASEPAGENAME}} as a way to insert your name into the message, and wasn't intending to cause offence. I apologise if I have done so. Hope this helps, Gazimoff WriteRead 01:55, 29 June 2008 (UTC)
Oh no worries ;) But substing the magic word makes the message feel a bit more personal, do that next time! Plrk (talk) 01:56, 29 June 2008 (UTC)


This is the difference between the deleted and the recreated version - seems "substantially identical" to me. The article should have gone through Wikipedia:Deletion review instead of being recreated just like that. I won't push it to AfD though - I'm not crazy! ;) Plrk (talk) 20:45, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

There were some new sources, with properly cited references; not "substantially identical" as I read it. Why not consider a prod or AfD? --Orange Mike | Talk 20:52, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
Because I think it would be kept, so I can't be bothered. I'd prod it if it weren't for the fact that undeleted articles can't be prodded, and taking it to AfD would be a waste of time for all involved. I wanted to have it speedily deleted, brought to deletion review and - perhaps - recreated again, but obviously that won't happen.
It's a great game though. Plrk (talk) 21:01, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

So this is cool

Not sure I like where this is going. Protonk (talk) 01:47, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:Roy Lichtenstein Whaam.jpg

Image Copyright problem

Thank you for uploading Image:Roy Lichtenstein Whaam.jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the image. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. (talk) 16:23, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

It appears that a vandal removed the copyright information, without anyone restoring it. I have done so. Plrk (talk) 16:35, 18 July 2008 (UTC)
Thank you, I just noticed it and decided that placing the appropriate tags in the appropriate places would be the least I could do. (talk) 20:01, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

Maybe you should look at nathan porritt and josh walker. they are footballers with articles same age same club why arent they deleted.

I don't know. Ask someone involved with the football club articles. As you yourself have stated, I am not interested in football. It was only by chance I stumbled across the article on Smallwood. Plrk (talk) 12:57, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

How though why did you pick my article to abuse :-( —Preceding unsigned comment added by Buzza69 (talkcontribs) 12:58, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

It is not your article (see WP:OWN), I did not abuse it, and I found it via Special:Newpages. Plrk (talk) 13:00, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

Well the article i created then smart ass. why should i let the template stay wen its a perfectly good article--Buzza69 (talk) 13:06, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

re: Proposed deletion of Citadel Felbarr

thanks for the message but i have no interest whatsoever in this article. it was just one of a thousand or more that looked good from a quick glance, but after looking at it more carefully, i agree with the prod, i think its also important to note that only one other article links to Citadel Felbarr, and the article in question has notabillity problems itself. from my vantage point, Citadel Felbarr it good to go for deletion, assuming you've notified the creator of the page also. let me know if i can be of more help. peace!

I agree with what you attempted to do. If an article makes statements that are blatant lies, the lies should be removed and the article tossed. But there may be something bigger going on. Take a look at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/The Stone Beast. This is another hoax in AfD that has been bumping along without being deleted. Somebody is betting on the outcome, surely. Schmidt, MICHAEL Q. 18:14, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

Your personal attacks

In regards to your accusation of "spamming" - I have to say I find it a little offensive. Your suggestion that I am spamming is both a little offensive, and inaccurate per WP:SPAM. I only ask that you redact these comments. Given that it casts an aspersion over my conduct as an editor, I have to say I would rather not have the accusation hanging there for all and sundry to see when it is apparent to me that it is unjustified. travb (talk) 14:27, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

You don't think you're overreacting a bit now? Plrk (talk) 14:59, 14 January 2009 (UTC)
Again, please stop calling me an "idiot" or "crazy". This behavior is not upsetting me, as you seem to be attempting to do.
This behavior is simply making your arguments look weaker because:
  1. other editors can see that you are devisive and argumentive,
  2. you are not working towards consensus, and
  3. you are unable to defend your weak arguments, so you resort to peity name calling.
  4. I have found in general that the more educated the person, the less insults are required to make a point, because more educated people have a wider vocabularly to draw upon, and don't have to use simple vulgarity or peity insults to express themselves. Insults can never replace well thought out reasoning, as any observer will recognize.
I am now asking you to no longer post on my talk page, please respond here, and I will watch this page. Continued insults and posting on my talk page will result in me contacting Administrators to help resolve this issue.
It is obvious that you came here looking for contention, not in an attempt to build consensus. So I am sure that you are pleased by my warnings, and I know what will inevitably happen next. Ikip (talk) 17:53, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Removal of reference

As far as I can see it does suport the text,

Smörgås är från början en smörklimp som simmade på ytan av den kärnade mjölken, som en liten fet gås. En sådan klimp tryckte man ut på en brödskiva, och så kom smöret och brödet tillsammans att kallas smörgås. Men i och med att föreställningen om en gås upphörde tappade man också pluralformen gäss, och smörgås blev i flertal smörgåsar.

If you want to correct something correct the text but leave the reference in place.

Warrington (talk) 17:47, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

The reference you are using is the exact one I added to the article earlier today (just badly formatted), so I've read it thank you very much. The sentence to which I added {{fact}} says "These pieces reminded the 16th century Swedish people fat geese swimming to the surface", but the text you are citing above says nothing about 16th century Swedish people. Can you even read Swedish? Plrk (talk) 20:17, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

Ja det kan jag, mycket bra till och med. Anledningen varför denna förklaring finns där är att de som läser texten skulle fatta vad denna gås grej handlar om. Detta räcker helt enkelt inte: Gås literally means goose, but then referred to the small pieces of butter that formed and floated to the surface of cream while it was churned ...

Goddag, och än sen? Det är bara förvirrande, och vad har detta med gäss att göra egentligen? I DIN artikel finns det ett stycke om att de påminner om feta gäss, denna term, smörgås var redan i användning på medeltiden. Alltså, det som står där ÄR helt korrekt, så vad bråkar ni om? Formulera om det om det stör dig, jag är bara ute efter att folk ska förstå det hela, ingenting annat. Jag är djävligt trött på folk som bara strör omkring sig en massa citation needed, utan att ens försöka kolla saken själva och det blir bara en massa extra jobb hela tiden att fixa det.

Warrington (talk) 21:09, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

Formulera då om texten så att den stämmer överens med vad som sägs i din källhänvisning. Artikeln förklarar vad uttrycket kommer ifrån, men ingenting nämns om "16th century Swedish people" - det var vad jag ville ha källbelagt!
JAG blir trött på folk som 1) gnäller på citation needed-taggar när det uppenbarligen behövs källhänvisningar, 2) använder källhänvisningar för att styrka påståenden som faktiskt inte finns i källhänvisningen, 3) är dåliga på att formatera sina reffar (eftersom din ref var samma som min ref borde du lagt till ett name-attribut i min ref och sedan skrivit <ref name="förra refens namn" /> där du ville sätta din ref).
"Citation needed"-taggar innebär inte extrajobb. Allt skall källbeläggas, frågan är bara när.
Jag källbelägger för övrigt mer än de flesta. Faktum är att jag fixade en källhänvisning i just Smörgåsbord-artikeln precis innan du kom och började tjafsa med mig.

Modern Julleuchter Images

The images should not be taged for deletion. Acceptable use Images with iconic status or historical importance: As subjects of commentary. This image is important because it show that people still use the Julleuchter in our modern day and age. The use of the lantern had survived the dark times of the Third Reich and true believers still hold it sacred.

Death Trilogy (Gus Van Sant)

Nuvola apps important.svg

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Death Trilogy (Gus Van Sant), and it appears to be very similar to another Wikipedia page: Death Trilogy. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case. If you are intentionally moving or duplicating content, please be sure you have followed the procedure at Wikipedia:Splitting by acknowledging the duplication of material in edit summary to preserve attribution history.

This message was placed automatically, and it is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article and it would be appreciated if you could drop a note on the maintainer's talk page. (talk) 19:19, 12 April 2009 (UTC)

Josef Tal

Dear Plrk, You left me a message stating "There is no OTRS ticket for File:Josef Tal & His Loudspeakers.jpg. If it's copyright status can't be verified, it will be deleted. Plrk (talk) 09:20, 9 July 2009 (UTC)" I have answered the following: Dear Plrk, Please instruct me how to provide the requested permission. (BTW - isn't it enough that I officially declare this?) Anyway - I have it in writing and I can fax it to you anytime. I suppose this must settle the issue. Kind regards, Etan Tal (talk) 11:41, 9 July 2009 (UTC) Etan Tal

Since there was no response there I copy it now to YOUR talk, hoping for feedback soon. Kind regards Etan Tal (talk) 12:11, 11 July 2009 (UTC)

I'd like to add Eva Flyborg to the list. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 19:27, 1 May 2010 (UTC)

Most of these were substubs that I created with information from I might source this very basic info in the summer, if I have enough time on my hands. Most of the article on Eva Flyborg is however written by User:Taxman4444. Plrk (talk) 14:58, 2 May 2010 (UTC)

Eva Flyborg

Hello. You created the article back in 2007. It has remained without third-party refs since. Now, there is a lot of info, some that is personal, with no support. Could you please dig something up to support the statements? Thank you. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 01:00, 28 July 2010 (UTC)

I created a substub in 2007 - this, with information from her page on - and haven't touched it since. Judging by the history page of the article, you should ask User:Taxman4444. Plrk (talk) 09:45, 28 July 2010 (UTC)
Here's a mini-biography though: Plrk (talk) 09:47, 28 July 2010 (UTC)
I wrote to Taxman4444 ages ago. No reply. Thanks for the link. I'll see what I can do. Best, Anna Frodesiak (talk) 09:57, 28 July 2010 (UTC)
For you Plrk (talk) 09:52, 1 August 2010 (UTC)
Wonderful. I looks great. Now, should Flyborg's name get a mention in Liberal People's Party (Sweden)? I wouldn't know. Thanks for the fixit job! Best, Anna Frodesiak (talk) 10:45, 1 August 2010 (UTC)
No, she's just one of many MPs. Plrk (talk) 12:45, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

Star Fleet races

I see back in 2008ish you participated in a number of Star Fleet Battles fictional elements related deletions. If you still have those on your watchlist, you may have notice I've restored the edit history under the current redirects. I've done this in the thought that if I get a minute, I may well merge a bunch of this content to the Star Fleet Universe article, which currently has much less content than it could. At any rate, the intent is not to restore individual articles on non-notable fictional elements, but to comply with our attribution requirements of our licenses. If you notice anything I've screwed up in doing so, please let me know so I can fix it. Cheers, Jclemens (talk) 18:43, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Aya Takano - The world after 800,000,000 years (screenshot).png


Thanks for uploading File:Aya Takano - The world after 800,000,000 years (screenshot).png. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of "file" pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Courcelles 03:23, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

Re-use of an image you uploaded

Hello! I just wanted to let you know that one of the images you uploaded was re-used in Uppsalatidningen, but that the use does not seem to comply with any of the licenses you specified. See commons:File talk:Martin Luther King memorial during Allt ljus på Uppsala 2008-11-15.jpg. I also notified the creator. Feel free to comment on the image's talk page on Commons. --Bensin (talk) 19:17, 5 November 2012 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of IOGT-NTO

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article IOGT-NTO has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

The coverage (references, external links, etc.) does not seem sufficient to justify this article passing Wikipedia:General notability guideline and the more detailed Wikipedia:Notability (companies) requirement. If you disagree and deprod this, please explain how it meets them on the talk page here in the form of "This article meets criteria A and B because..." and ping me back through WP:ECHO or by leaving a note at User talk:Piotrus. Thank you.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages 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 page 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. Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 05:47, 27 April 2017 (UTC)

Thank you, User:Piotrus, for your message. I have posted a message on the article talk page and removed the deletion proposal. Plrk (talk) 09:13, 27 April 2017 (UTC)
