Request for Draft:Jude Odele review[edit]

Hello, Kindly help me look through my new page adjustments to this page, Draft:Jude Odele

Resubmission[edit]

My subject of article is different from Artemisia absinthium, which is only simple description not specific part on uses, so why I cannot resubmit it? Thank you

UNE Works SA article[edit]

Hi, you marked my article as promotion/advertisment. I recently got my-self a UNE watch, I think its a very unique idea to manufacture ultra thin watch faces from rocks and unfortunately there is only little information about it in the web. So I decided to create this article. I went through many articles of other watch manufacturing companies. I dont see how the article about this watch manufacturer is different from all the other 250 watch manufacturer atricles. Please communicate whatexactly violates the rules of a brand article. thank you in advance


Deletion review for N2WS (Veeam)[edit]

An editor has asked for a deletion review of N2WS (Veeam). Because you closed the deletion discussion for this page, speedily deleted it, or otherwise were interested in the page, you might want to participate in the deletion review. Gilad.maayan (talk) 16:00, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

Undisclosed Paid tag[edit]

Hi, You recently tagged an article I made with the Undisclosed Paid tag. I wasn’t paid for the article, I’m just a big fan of Mean Girls the Musical, which she happens to be an actress in. If you look at my contribution history, I’ve been making articles for other ensemble members too, and none of it is paid. I just decided to make them. Have I done something wrong?

Information Radiator deleted? why?[edit]

Hi, Praxidicae --- Regarding the deletion of the article Information Radiator, can you say why? It is a new topic, seems important (to me) to have it, two of us have been writing on it. Any information helpful, I'm new at this, thank you, Nadia — Preceding unsigned comment added by Nadia Riat (talkcontribs) 17:00, 7 June 2019 (UTC)

Please see this discussion. Also please tone down your hostility when engaging people on talk pages "whatever you are" is very much seen as a slight. Praxidicae (talk) 17:02, 7 June 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for the coaching, I deleted that text from the above. I looked at that link and see that in 2012 they decided that the term was not notable or common terminology. My question is (now that it is 7 years later) what might be the test of sufficiently notable and common terminology to warrant an entry? Then we can watch for that to happen. Thanks

Envy Me[edit]

So, Bacc at it Again is a page and Yella Beezy does not have a Wikipedia page. I just thought I should create it because the song was big, but if you guys could help to improve the article. I'm a beginner at Wikipedia, so help would be appreciated. — Preceding unsigned comment added by KoolKabuto (talkcontribs) 23:49, 7 June 2019 (UTC)

I'm still working on the article[edit]

@Praxidicae: Hi, there - how are you? I'm still working on the article of Anton Bredell. Please revoke your deletion request. I was just busy with some other work. Lefcentreright (talk) 15:18, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

I would suggest working on it in your draft space or sandbox as we do not allow any unsourced BLPs. Praxidicae (talk) 15:19, 11 June 2019 (UTC)
@Praxidicae: I'm literally about to add sources...Lefcentreright (talk) 15:20, 11 June 2019 (UTC)
@Praxidicae: Did you bother to read the "in creation' template which literally specifies "the creator asks that for a short time this page not be edited unnecessarily, or nominated for deletion during this early stage of development." Lefcentreright (talk) 15:24, 11 June 2019 (UTC)
I did bother to read it and it had been almost an hour, however WP:BLP does not allow for any old BLP to be thrown into mainspace indefinitely without sources. It isn't hard to add one source. Praxidicae (talk) 15:25, 11 June 2019 (UTC)
@Praxidicae: I have added sources now...Lefcentreright (talk) 15:27, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

Data lakes edits[edit]

Greetings. In regards to your removal of the citation, if reliability in a benchmark then there a host of other links and references that should be removed. There is nothing inconsistent with the citation in relation to the others on that page. There should not be different subjective standards for some references vs others.--Mistertumnis (talk) 19:06, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

We don't allow random corporate blogs as sources. Praxidicae (talk) 18:36, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

As I said, inconsistent. So what about the other references that link to random corporate blogs? I guess those are OK? Either be consistent and remove all of them or leave the edit and being consistent with the rest of the article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mistertumnis (talkcontribs) 18:41, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

They get removed. I'm a volunteer editor, just like everyone else and don't have time to comb through the millions of articles, so please take a chill pill and refrain from making demands when you yourself don't understand policy. Also, learn to sign your edits per the giant notice on the top of this page. Praxidicae (talk) 18:42, 11 June 2019 (UTC)
OK, thanks for the feedback. Then it looks like these other "random" corporate blogs as sources should also be removed. Since you are busy, I'm happy to assist since it only will take another minute to clean it up. Do you agree or do you want to leave the rest of the article more subjective in this regard?
In regards to the onus being on me to articulate why the content should be included, do you have an actual interest in having that type of dialogue? You simply shut down the conversation with your blanket "random corporate blog" no allowed comment which means there is nothing to discuss. As I referenced previously the content from critique paragraph reflects the information from the article cited. Since there are other corporate entities referenced in other places it is in keeping with the tone and context of the article. Those references to those other random corporate blogs I highlighted have been there for years so clearly after 100s of edits they have met some threshold.--Mistertumnis (talk) 18:48, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

Government Railway Police revert war?[edit]

Hello, I created a page for the GRP yesterday, why are you and some bot deleting and reverting it? Also can I know why it is being deleted, because I never used a copyrighted reference source, nor did I ever visit that PDF in the deletion notice. There is no resemblance between the two, and I'm happy to add more citations if needed. Thanks.✘ anonymousвهii 15:28, 12 June 2019 (UTC)

There is identical resemblance between that and 4 other sources. Praxidicae (talk) 15:29, 12 June 2019 (UTC)
Maybe that's because that source copied from the government PDF that I used and is in the open domain. I will recreate the page and add news sources. This kind of unaccountable abuse of power is ridiculous. ✘ anonymousвهii 15:32, 12 June 2019 (UTC)
Just because it's in the public domain or otherwise CC-by-whatever licensed doesn't mean you can copy something wholesale without appropriate attribution. I'd also strongly advise you rescind your accusations or substantiate them at WP:ANI.Your choice. Praxidicae (talk) 15:33, 12 June 2019 (UTC)
What part of this don't you understand: "I NEVER COPIED THAT AND DIDN'T KNOW OF IT'S EXISTENCE AND WROTE THAT ALL BY MYSELF". ✘ anonymousвهii 15:36, 12 June 2019 (UTC)
What part of "you cannot copy things wholsesale onto Wikipedia regardless of it's copyright status" and "no personal attacks" do you not understand? Refrain from editing my talk page until you've calmed down and have rescinded your personal attack above. Also I'd strongly encourage you to not edit war in general, but especially while logged out. Praxidicae (talk) 15:37, 12 June 2019 (UTC)
I'll also note it's quite interesting you've claimed above "I didn't copy it from anywhere!" followed by "I copied it but it was PD." Which is it? Praxidicae (talk) 15:38, 12 June 2019 (UTC)
What I meant was I went to the indianrailways.gov.in website, and used that as reference. I didn't copy it from the article I was accused of copying from. You're accusing me of edit warring too now? I literally didn't copy anything from anywhere. I went to the refs provided which are free to use as it is Indian government property - per the RTI Act. If I recrete the page with various free to use news sources, you're gonna delete it again, I assume. ✘ anonymousвهii 15:42, 12 June 2019 (UTC)
Anonymousboii You said "I didn't copy anything from anywhere" however earlier you said that you didn't copy from the PDF linked, but that the PDF copied from the website you mentioned above, which you used as a reference. So how is it that the PDF is a word for word match from that website and also your article? Please explain where the text came from in your article. Praxidicae (talk) 15:44, 12 June 2019 (UTC)
Also in case it's not abundantly obvious by the big giant flashing notice when you edit this page, let me repeat: I'm not an administrator, I didn't delete your article and can't undelete it.Praxidicae (talk) 15:46, 12 June 2019 (UTC)
According to the big giant flashing notice, you could've changed up the article to make it better, possibly avoiding the deletion. Hypocrisy at its finest. Also, what part was a "word-to-word" match? The lead, which returns 0 matches? The Infobox which wasn't in there? The Objectives, which were in the open domain (Government PDF)? The history, whose references were also on other Wiki pages? Because that's all the article had. Nothing else.✘ anonymousвهii 15:51, 12 June 2019 (UTC)
  • Anonymousboii If you're going to keep talking in circles, I'm not interested. Take your gripes elsewhere. The onus isn't on anyone to fix a mess you make. Iit was over an 80% match for several paragraphs, which made up the bulk of the article and you keep flip fopping by saying "I didn't copy it from anywhere" to "I copied it from a PD source." This conversation has worn it's welcome. Please refrain from continuing it here. Thanks. Praxidicae (talk) 15:54, 12 June 2019 (UTC)
  • And now I've asked you twice to refrain from editing my talk page about this, you've persisted and added another personal attack. Do not edit my talk page from here on out unless it is required notification for an AN or ANI thread. Thanks. Praxidicae (talk) 15:56, 12 June 2019 (UTC)
    Anonymousboii, you've been asked nicely to stop posting here. If you think that Praxidicae has acted in a manner that you do not agree with, your next course of action is to go to WP:ANI and file a report. Otherwise, please respect her wishes and stop posting here - clearly neither of you are going to change your opinions. Primefac (talk) 15:58, 12 June 2019 (UTC) (talk page stalker)
  • Sorry you got caught up in this Praxidicae. I had tagged the page for deletion due to the copyright violation. It's been deleted now, so hopefully this is over. Thanks for all you do.Onel5969 TT me 16:18, 12 June 2019 (UTC)

Deletion of Solomon b taiwo[edit]

Solomon b Taiwo is a notable character and its not paid advisement. The page has not broken any rules according to Wikipedia policies.

Awards article[edit]

It specifically states that if you edit the text, you may remove the banner yourself, even if you wrote it. Even if you don't agree with that, and choose willing to go against the instructions in the banner, you should not revert all of the modified text. — Preceding unsigned comment added by ADP85xzVcQD (talkcontribs) 19:48, 13 June 2019 (UTC)

That's not how copyright works. Praxidicae (talk) 19:50, 13 June 2019 (UTC)

Read the banner, if you don't want to follow the guidelines in the banner, then don't edit. You don't get to make the rules. That is how it works. I followed the rules; the banner should go. Furthermore, you continue to spam my talk page about this issue and threaten me, but I deleted a different banner--one about it being "promotional". Which is ridiculous. I added copious references to the existing encyclopedic text about the topics, which demonstrates it is not just "promotional".

ADP85xzVcQD I don't know if you are unable to read or are willfully ignoring it but the banner I placed very clearly states in big bold lettering do not remove this notice from pages that you have created yourself. As I've already told you, sign.your.edits. Praxidicae (talk) 20:36, 13 June 2019 (UTC)

The banner says first and foremost that you can remove the banner if you edit the page. You may not merely remove the banner. If that is not the intended meaning of the banner, the text should be edited for clarity (e.g. one can say "The original author may never remove the banner; all others may edit the page and remove the banner." Order matters in written and spoken text.) But more importantly, if you want to be an editor, you should not insult others (e.g. saying "I don't know if you are unable to read" is essentially throwing an insult suggesting I am illiterate. While I know numerous wonderful illiterate folks, and while I, as the recipient, am supposed to give you the benefit of the doubt, I cannot figure out how that is anything but you throwing an insult at me. The correct thing to do would be to apologize. At a minimum, it is harassment and I respectful request that you not contact me further, unless you would like to offer an apology. — Preceding unsigned comment added by ADP85xzVcQD (talkcontribs) 23:44, 13 June 2019 (UTC)

@ADP85xzVcQD: You are wrong on every count. The author of an article may never remove a speedy delete tag, and every tag states so clearly in bold. Yet, you removed the tag twice. Such conduct, BTW, is blockable, and you're fortunate that I spent more time evaluating the article than your conduct, or I might have blocked you for disruptive tag removal. I won't do it now, but consider this your only warning that if you repeat your misconduct, you risk being blocked. Finally, I deleted the article.--Bbb23 (talk) 01:00, 14 June 2019 (UTC)

That is not how the text reads. If you mean the text to read in another way, you should edit it to avoid confusions. In addition, if you follow the links there is little to no guidance given. You should take this as the helpful comment it is, as opposed to issuing threats. If you don't want to fix it, you are just perpetuating the problem. I am providing you constructive criticism and feedback. Furthermore, nt reprimanding the insults being thrown at me, is also perpetuating a culture of hostility on Wikipedia that really should not be tolerated. — Preceding unsigned comment added by ADP85xzVcQD (talkcontribs) 01:21, 14 June 2019 (UTC)

Kelly Goldsmith edits[edit]

Hi, I was just trying to make the page look more normal and add the TEDx talk. Did I do something wrong? Why did you revert all of my edits? I am pretty familiar with the guidelines and didn't think I did anything objectionable but do let me know. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Refpointassoc (talkcontribs) 15:49, 14 June 2019 (UTC)

Refpointassoc You're adding a photo which is clearly not own work and in violation of copyright, as well as promotional material. What is your affiliation to Goldsmith? Praxidicae (talk) 15:50, 14 June 2019 (UTC)

I thought all the TEDx stuff was creative commons approved but maybe I was misinformed (agreed, I didn't take it). I have no connection to her. Am just a fan who has been bummed that this page looked a little lackluster for awhile and was trying to help clean it up. I really didn't add any promotional material - I just gave it some headers and moved stuff around to try and make it look more normal (i.e., like other pages). And I added academic citations, so I don't understand how that would be promotional, I was trying to provide more unbiased references, which was requested on the header of the page. I am not trying to be a jerk or anything, I just legitimately don't understand how citing academic articles on an academic's page is a problem. I am not obsessed with this and am happy to relent, but I really did see my changes as strictly stylistic and attempting to better format the page per the suggested guidelines Refpointassoc (talk) 15:54, 14 June 2019 (UTC)RPA

Am assuming that there's also some measure of COI going on. If the awards/events are not-notable then how does one find out about them...
What is somewhat upsetting - because I actually do hate for good content to be thrown away - is that the subject itself seems notable. I would think the contributing editor could write up a well-sourced article about the subject and if the awards show up in reliable sources then mention them there. Shearonink (talk) 19:30, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
Hey Prax - I have changed my opinion to Neutral. I think it is possible that these awards - taken together - might indeed be notable as there seems to be reliable-sourced coverage that the contributing editor has mentioned. Shearonink (talk) 22:56, 17 June 2019 (UTC)

"Spam" reverts[edit]

Re the PDF links by 145.107.83.167: I think the one you re-reverted at Kagu might actually be the only one that is problematic (overlooked that one), and is probably the result of a good faith error. Everything else seems to be bona fide addition of the WM link to the required PDFs. A peculiar case is Jamaican red macaw, where the original link DID refer to what looks like a spam squatter, and the Wm link produces the correct article PDF. - Overall, I don't see a cause for wholesale reverts here? --Elmidae (talk · contribs) 15:39, 18 June 2019 (UTC)

"Edit War???? I did not revert three times as you claim!"[edit]

You hope this is merely a mistake on your part. I contacted the editor that they were incorrect, that there was a secondary citation to a scientific journal with a DOI. They proceeded to delete my comment from their talk page using revert, which is their perrogative. They merely said, "We're done!" in the comment field for the "undo" and provided no justification for why the journal Nature Genetics is not a reliable secondary source. This is world-read, premier science journal with an impact factor of 27. Saying it is not reliable is utterly absurd. But despite that, and the editor's unwillingness to do more than say "We're done", I then proceeded to put the text on the "talk" page of the web page, not revert, and I did that almost a half day before you "intervened". So really, your warning is misdirected and should be given to the other editor.ADP85xzVcQD (talk) 16:21, 18 June 2019 (UTC)

ADP85xzVcQD I think you failed to read what was said to you in each case. I do not appreciate your combative behavior on my talk page, or elsewhere but my warning was not a mistake, you were told in no uncertain terms by Bbb23 not to restore the edits until you gained consensus on the talk page - it doesn't matter if you are right or not because you were told to get consensus and have not done so. Praxidicae (talk) 16:22, 18 June 2019 (UTC)
And let me simplify something for you, ADP85xzVcQD. When multiple experienced editors tell you to get consensus, do not restore contested material to any article, even if it takes a year to actually reach a consensus. This is how Wikipedia works. There are no time lines, a half day, whole day, hell, even a week, doesn't mean you get to just reinstate edits that are contentious just because you didn't receive the response you wanted, when you wanted it. Praxidicae (talk) 16:25, 18 June 2019 (UTC)
Please look at the time date stamps. Your timeline is incorrect. Everything I put above was even toned and factual. You are the one that is combative; you are the one who literally threw insults at me the other day and did not apologize, yet I am even toned. You are biased and should not be involved in this. I can't change that, but did you look at the talk page for the article in question? Did you look at the time/date stamp for those edits? If you did, they support the time line I put above.ADP85xzVcQD (talk) 16:30, 18 June 2019 (UTC)
ADP85xzVcQD Do you ever bother to read the templates and warnings you are given? Did we not just have this conversation when you kept removing CSD tags? The WP:3RR warning explicitly states, in big bold letters: Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.. And if you're wondering why Bbb23 and others revert your edits to their talk pages, it's behavior exactly like this. We're volunteers and time wasting, chronic behavioral problems are exhausting. With that being said, I'd ask that you cease editing my talk page unless required to do so by policy, like to notify me of dispute resolution discussions or ANI. If you think my behavior or anyone else's is out of line, take it to WP:ANI. Thanks. Praxidicae (talk) 16:34, 18 June 2019 (UTC)
Per your suggestion, I posted at WP:ANI. I could not figure out the instructions on how to inform you correctly, so please take this as my notice that I posted there. I also did not use your tag since I couldn't figure it out.

Oliver Harris singer - Page Deletion[edit]

Hi Praxidicae, Thank you for your welcome to Wikipedia. I appreciate it. Unfortunately before I had time to deal with the Tag, someone had deleted the Oliver Harris singer page.

We all have to learn about a variety of things, and I am always prepared to learn. But I wasn't given any time to correct this page before it was taken down. I am sorry that people on Wikipedia have been unwilling or unable to help me. Many people in Barnsley, Edinburgh, Portugal and other places are interested in Oliver Harris and want to know more about him. People look to Wikipedia for information about interesting and public figures - such as Oliver Harris. Unfortunately people are being prevented from finding out about Oliver Harris when they look for him on Wikipedia. I am at a loss to understand why. I am now totally discouraged from being a contributor to Wikipedia both financially and editorially. And I cannot understand why people on Wikipedia have dealt with my attempt in this way. Perhaps you could help by putting up a page on Oliver Harris singer to get things started. I know the people of Yorkshire would be very appreciative. Many thanks for your help. Take care. Best wishes. Paul Thompson. Paulsequoia (talk) 15:40, 19 June 2019 (UTC)

(by talk reader) Hello Paulsequoia. Thank you for reaching out for support! You should certainly be discouraged from contributing to Wikipedia for financial gain or to influence something editorially, as these are not goals of Wikipedia. That being said, let me help you understand why Prax did what they did.
  1. Copyright infringment - Apparently one section of the article was blatantly copy-pasted from CDBaby [1]. We take copyright issues very seriously here at Wikipedia. Not only is it not information in our own words, but it could lead to legal action against Wikipedia!
  2. Notability and Advertising - We have particular guidelines for whether or not a musician is notable enough to warrant a Wikipedia article, which you can find here. Does Oliver Harris meet those requirements? If so, prove it. If not, then unfortunately it may be better suited elsewhere and not on Wikipedia.
  3. Additionally, articles should be written neutrally, not to glorify or advertise the subject. We take people trying to promote themselves or someone else seriously here as well.

Don't take this as a wholesale rejection of your work, unless of course you meant to do one of the things mentioned above! Creating an article is an ongoing process with a lot of bumps in the road. Try to use your own words and try to submit again. Bkissin (talk) 16:45, 19 June 2019 (UTC)
