Justice League[edit]

I just wanted you to know that the information you wanted to insert was removed from the lead. First, the lead summarizes and shouldn't be a house for unique information not present elsewhere in the article. Second, the article wasn't identifying it as a "bomb" in the sense that you were using it when you linked to that page. It was using the term as a symbolic reference for the film not performing better, not that it didn't make money. They kind of go out of their way to point out that if it was any other franchise, it would be considered a success, but because it's Justice League it's considered a "bomb" simply because it didn't make a billion dollars. They weren't actually comparing direct costs to revenue ratios and we shouldn't be presenting the information as if they were.  BIGNOLE  (Contact me) 21:13, 2 January 2018 (UTC)

Hi, User:Bignole, In modern times, the phrase 'box office bomb' is used liberally for any film that does not make what is expected, see "The Mummy", "Blade Runner 2049," "King Arthur", and "Justice League." -- Wilner (Speak to me) 21:17, 2 January 2018 (UTC)
The very page you link to says that it's more than just simply not making back what it costs. Again, the issue not about whether it lost money, the issue is two-fold: The lead is not the place to introduce unique information that isn't present in the rest of the article, and Forbes was talking about how Justice League compares to other franchises and because of its hype is considered a bomb, not because of actual money lost. That's my point, they go out of their way to point out how it's made as much as many other films that cost similar, but it is not living up to reputation. You cannot insert that into the lead for sensationalism when there isn't context to explain what Forbes is saying.  BIGNOLE  (Contact me) 21:20, 2 January 2018 (UTC)
Hi there, User:Bignole. The fact is that Justice League is a box office bomb, and this is well reported as a simple Google search indicates. In 2017, the term has been used liberally for films that grossed more than their budgets but did not perform as expected. See Blade Runner 2049, King Arthur, The Mummy (2017 film), and Justice League. Here are many sources calling it a box office bomb, and the term 'box office flop', which links to the same wiki article:

1.The Atlantic calls it a 'flop.'

2.Uproxx calls it a 'bomb.'

3.Screenrant calls it a 'box office bomb disaster.'

4. [1] Forbes does, as sourced before, and no it's not a "joke" as you claim: "Justice League is somewhat unique unto itself in terms of being able to make so much and still be considered a bomb."

5. Vulture calls it a 'flop.'

6. Business Insider calls it a 'flop.'

7. Observer calls it a 'flop.'

8. toofab calls it a 'flop.

9. Express calls it a 'flop.'


etc.

I notice you frequent your time on articles pertaining to DC products. Do you happen to work for DC or Warner Brothers? Perhaps you should take a break from editing DC related articles as you are letting personal interests get in the way of the mission of Wikipedia. It's quite a conflict of interest and goes against the rules of Wikipedia. See: WP:COI. -- Wilner (Speak to me) 21:42, 2 January 2018 (UTC)

First, don't presume to know me based on what I edit. It's unprofessional and uncouth to accuse me of having a COI because you think I work for something I don't simply based on my edits. I have also edited tons of Horror related articles, do you assume I work for those companies as well? Please don't try to distract the discussion with baseless accusations.
Second, you clearly keep missing my point. I never said the film was or was not a bomb. What I said was that (and I'll try to make this clearer for you):
1) The lead is for summarizing an article NOT for inserting unique information not present elsewhere. Please see WP:LEAD
2) The way Forbes is talking, you're presenting the information without context and Forbes is clearly talking about the film in relation to its performance and other franchises, not simply the Xs and Os of budgets. Yes, it has failed to make its money back. Not disputing that, nor disputing the actual label of "bomb". I'm telling you that you are misattributing what Forbes is saying by trying to make it seem as though they are specifically talking about cost and revenue. It's much more than that and you can see that from reading the whole and not title grabbing.
In conclusion, what you should surmise from this is that you need to develop the box office section more to reflect what you're trying to add instead of simply taking the shortcut approach and throwing it in the lead (where it doesn't belong, because the lead is for summarizing).  BIGNOLE  (Contact me) 22:18, 2 January 2018 (UTC)
Very well, per this discussion, I will add that information via the sources i have amalgamated into the box office section, and then after I will reinsert it into the lede, as it is very notable, and currently isn't mentioned at all on the article, which i find sinister. -- Wilner (Speak to me) 22:22, 2 January 2018 (UTC)

Max Landis[edit]

Your edit does not match your edit summary? --NeilN talk to me 04:18, 5 January 2018 (UTC)

Shoot, I'm sorry User:NeilN ! I didn't know you already removed it. I assumed something went wrong with my editing. I was in the process of removing it when that happened. No malicious intent! I've also messaged that user on their talk page letting them know it goes against WP:BLP and WP:RS.-- Wilner (Speak to me) 04:22, 5 January 2018 (UTC)
It was actually EEng who removed it. Do you want to undo your edit? --NeilN talk to me 04:24, 5 January 2018 (UTC)
Oh, whoops. I see that now. I don't think I can at this point because i've made a few more edits attempting to add past information, with good sources, such as Newsweek. -- Wilner (Speak to me) 04:37, 5 January 2018 (UTC)

Explanation[edit]

The reason why I think this is better suited as a category is because it only has one column, and your reason might not apply because the template could be added to other articles. ToThAc (talk) 02:38, 7 January 2018 (UTC)

Germanic languages[edit]

Hello. There is a dialect continuum from the Low Franconian to the Central Franconian and High Franconian languages via Limburgish. Limburgish was already affected by the High German consonant shift and is already transitional between Low Franconian and Ripuarian. Also, Low German has more Ingvaeonic (North Sea Germanic) features than Low Franconian. TheCarlos1975 (talk) 07:22, 16 January 2018 (UTC)

English people article[edit]

But therefore wouldn't my addition hold true since ethnicity falls under association ("otherwise associated with England")? I only add this because the article implies that English people are only considered so if they are born in England; "native to", (native referring to ones place of birth and nothing else). What would you define as an English person and the difference between ethnic and nationality in this case?

You don't seem to understand Wikipedia policy. You are the one who is commiting vandalism. see WP:VANDALISM. Vandalism is the REMOVAL of content. R9tgokunks 03:36, 19 February 2018 (UTC)

Why did you delete my posting to your talk page? I explained earlier I am updating a category. You have decided not to discuss and have only threatened me with being a vandal and that I will blocked. Sir or Madam please stop interfering in my editing with such blatant disregard. I explained earlier the category prisoners and detainees of the us government is for current prisoners and detainees only. I have offered as proof the fact that Charles Manson and Al Capone are both excluded for obvious reasons though both served considerable time in US prison. Please communicate and do not remove my edits, nor my posting to your talk page. Thank you!2602:306:8B8C:29A0:70A4:BD5C:FF8B:FDE4 (talk) 03:41, 19 February 2018 (UTC)

The fact remains I am not a vandal and will not debate the issue with me. You removed my posting to your talk page and have continued to revert all my edits for the category in question. I do believe to remove talk page discussions on any talk page is a violation of Wikipedia policy and is in fact vandalism itself.

1. Vandalism is the removal of content, which you are doing. READ WP:VANDALISM. (I already stated that above.)
2. Wikipedia policy specifically states that users can do whatever they want to their talk pages. I can delete whatever I want. Also, you're complaining about me removing your post after I had re-added it, anyway. R9tgokunks 03:54, 19 February 2018 (UTC)

Content changes as the time changes. Please explain why the two individuals I cited are not included in the category? It is because they no longer fit the category. Perhaps, you should wait for a real answer rather than resorting to edit warring and vandalism. Thank youWell please reread the General talk page. Please use some sense man!

This IP is going through almost every article and removing the same category. R9tgokunks ✡ 03:43, 19 February 2018 (UTC) @R9tgokunks: As well they might; as they have explained on your Talk page, the category should not remain on the page of everyone who at one time was a federal prisoner indefinitely.

Hello[edit]

Hello. In the Low Saxon-speaking regions of the Netherlands, Low German is referred to as Low Saxon only, and in the West Low German-speaking regions of Germany, Low German is referred to as either Low German or Low Saxon. Also in English, Low German is referred to as either Low German or Low Saxon. Only in the East Low German-speaking regions, Low German is referred to as Low German only. You might want to have a look at the version as of 14:58, 11 November 2017 before someone classified Dutch and Afrikaans as "Netherlandic". Also, it is strange that there is, since 18:51, 7 December 2017, a category "Standard variants" for the Low Franconian languages, when there are other standardized Germanic languages as well. And the West Low German dialects have more in common with the Anglo-Frisian languages than the East Low German dialects. Also, Dutch and Afrikaans are West Low Franconian.

April 2018 Milhist Backlog Drive[edit]

G'day all, please be advised that throughout April 2018 the Military history Wikiproject is running its annual backlog elimination drive. This will focus on several key areas:

  • tagging and assessing articles that fall within the project's scope
  • adding or improving listed resources on Milhist's task force pages
  • updating the open tasks template on Milhist's task force pages
  • creating articles that are listed as "requested" on the project's various lists of missing articles.

As with past Milhist drives, there are points awarded for working on articles in the targeted areas, with barnstars being awarded at the end for different levels of achievement.

The drive is open to all Wikipedians, not just members of the Military history project, although only work on articles that fall (broadly) within the scope of military history will be considered eligible. This year, the Military history project would like to extend a specific welcome to members of Wikipedia:WikiProject Women in Red, and we would like to encourage all participants to consider working on helping to improve our coverage of women in the military. This is not the sole focus of the edit-a-thon, though, and there are aspects that hopefully will appeal to pretty much everyone.

The drive starts at 00:01 UTC on 1 April and runs until 23:59 UTC on 30 April 2018. Those interested in participating can sign up here.

I don't understand, why was this reverted? I was not vandalizing it. https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=HowToBasic&oldid=835976569

You defaced the article by reverting to an older version. It re-added a large amount of WP:OR, removed content, and removed a bunch of sources, which were explicitly added to improve the notability of the article. In both edits you used a misleading edit summary (Added birth name) and even when doing that you added obvious uncited O.R. (Michael Stevens is not HTB). You did it twice and you would have known what you were doing, so you can drop the act. R9tgokunks 01:06, 21 April 2018 (UTC)

Heads up at French people[edit]

This edit may not qualify for a 3RR exemption, because you reintroduced bad data. I am inclined to roll back all the way to the version from 25 April, once the article stabilizes a little bit; it looks like the IP edit on 2 May is where the bad data (like 6M French in Argentina) got introduced. —C.Fred (talk) 06:01, 7 May 2018 (UTC)

@C.Fred: Thanks for the heads up. Do what you will. I want to get it back to where it was. R9tgokunks 06:02, 7 May 2018 (UTC)
@C.Fred: I seem to have rolledback to a revision by yourself. Was there bad data in that revision? R9tgokunks 06:05, 7 May 2018 (UTC)

I guess you haven't been to Wikipedia before. Your edit was bad, in general. You didn't even delete the whole source and it left the article looking bad due to the spare wiki-syntax. Also, you didn't look at the source anyway. It states that it's a copy of an article David Littman (historian) published in Midstream. Plus, I'm not seeing how the site that hosts the article is Islamophobic. Also, you need to learn how to sign your comments R9tgokunks 06:12, 29 May 2018 (UTC)

Proposed Deletion of Only If (2014 Video Game)[edit]

Hey R9tgokunks,

I just received a proposed deletion of the article mentioned above, I've read that the reason is because of another banned account is sock puppeting. Is the propsal out of general suspicion?

I'm the video game's creator and acknowledged that when creating the article and tried to ensured no bias while editing by basing how the article is written to other game articles.

For verification reasons, my email is tarek@creability.co if you wish to further confirm that I am the game's developer who wrote the article.

Regards, Tarek — Preceding unsigned comment added by Fromfame (talkcontribs) 04:21, 25 June 2018 (UTC)

  • Hi @Fromfame:. Well, you're weren't under suspicion before...this has to do with a different user entirely who had a history of bad editing. (User:Mayamaya7) They were blocked for being a WP:SOCKPUPPET.
  • Also, Wikipedia has rules against editing articles pertaining to subjects you are close to... (see WP:Conflict of interest, WP:NOTPROMO) normally you're supposed to report a COI, sometimes continued editing with a COI can get you blocked from editing. Unfortunately, since you're the creator of the project and you created it's article, I think it bodes poorly for the article's status... especially because per WP:NOTABILITY we need significant coverage and sources. We don't have that in the sources. 1 source is the website for the company (see also WP:PRIMARY SOURCES), and another is Giant Bomb, which is a notoriously unreliable source. R9tgokunks 04:33, 25 June 2018 (UTC)

Hi @R9tgokunks: I understand thanks for your explanation, there were references on the article to meta critic (http://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/only-if) and the steam's page (https://store.steampowered.com/app/298260/Only_If/) which sold 1.2 million units and had youtubers such as pewdiepie monetize it (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WlGHn8Ksfxg).

Does having a COI still result in an article's deletion regardless of such references and an attempt at writing fairly?

I was motivated by this disclosure during the creation process: "Disclosing your relationship with the subject is important in both giving context and transparency with your edits. Additionally, it helps others assist you in making your content more suitable for Wikipedia." fromfame 6:46, 27 June 2018 (GMT)

I declined your PROD of Realm Royale. I don't see any problem with the article itself; there's enough sourcing and discussion to establish a degree of notability.

@Meters:, If you are defiant against use of warning templates then that's a separate issue altogether. You're an editor here and you need to get used to them. Both were valid. You made two reverts at Uma Musume Pretty Derby and the edit-warring template can be applied regardless of the number of reverts as I have stated many times and you seem to refuse to accept.
Also, I'll remind you again that you warned me twice for the same thing, which was inappropriate in any instance. My warning for edit-warring was valid as noted before. Here is your first warning and the second warning, and here is the final revision with both included before I removed them. That is highly inappropriate. My second template warning you against misuse of warning templates was also valid. Not sure if you have amnesia or what, but you did inappropriately add two of them.R9tgokunks 05:14, 2 July 2018 (UTC)

Czechia / Czech Republic[edit]

You need to calm down on your crusade to rid the world of 'Czechia'. WP:COMMONNAME refers primarily to article titles, and the talk page discussions you linked to are also concerned with the re-naming of the national article. The fact that Czech Republic is still the more widely used term does not provide justification for what you are clearly doing: searching for any mention of the term Czechia in Wikipedia with the intention of removing it from the site altogether, even though it is an acknowledged official term for the country; I see it as the equivalent to USA v United States or UK v United Kingdom. Crowsus (talk) 05:02, 3 July 2018 (UTC)

@Crowsus: Actually, it applies to edits like yours. The name is not to be changed until consensus is reached per discussions at Talk:Czech Republic. We've had numerous discussions on this, most of which are in the archives. R9tgokunks 05:04, 3 July 2018 (UTC)

Czechia and Czech Republic[edit]

Thank you for your polite request. However, WP:COMMONNAME is about article titles, not about the text of articles. If reliable sources use a variety of names, so should we, albeit in the same proportion. Otherwise we are skewing Wikipedia so that it does not reflect the real world. Meanwhile Czechia has become the official short name of the country, recognised by Britain, the USA and the UN. Even more reason to graciously allow both names to be used here. Bermicourt (talk) 08:52, 3 July 2018 (UTC)

Sorry for the intrusion: Wp:Commonname gives the (unifying) power to use it more than sources suggest, in page titles or in the text of articles. Wikipedia does not try to keep the ratio of synonyms detected from sources and it is not considered as skewing. Czechia has its undeniable place in several articles and those were not touched, R9 just deleted some completely random (unsystematic) occurrences of Czechia, I think. Chrzwzcz (talk) 21:58, 3 July 2018 (UTC)
@Bermicourt:, Chrzwzcz (talk · contribs) is correct, and this is all parsed out more at these two discussions:
-R9tgokunks 23:38, 6 July 2018 (UTC)
Those links relate to one discussion about the main article title, the moratorium for which has expired. But I am not attempting to change the main article - I'm quite happy it's titled "Czech Republic" - I'm using Czechia just as editor normally use alternative or short names for countries e.g. Britain and UK for the United Kingdom. As for WP:COMMONNAME giving "unifying power" to use it everywhere - Chrzwzcz (talk · contribs) just made that up - it says nothing of the sort and editors freely use alternative names in the text of other articles. The truth is you are simply on a campaign to eliminate Czechia from Wikipedia because you WP:JUSTDONTLIKEIT and are prepared to risk edit warring to do so, as evinced by the number of editors raising this on your talk page whom you have clearly irritated. Bermicourt (talk) 08:26, 7 July 2018 (UTC)
Sorry for the intrusion #2 but I was pinged ;) - Does wikipedia really use synonyms for other countries or does it (or is wikipedia a "she"?) use one agreed common name which corresponds to main article name/title? Well yes, maybe for US and UK, but those are known to UK/US readers but you don't want to confuse them with more than one name for other countries of the world ;P What is the point to use Czechia on completely random places here and there? It breaks unified treatment and is kind of considered as vandalism. Again - Czechia is not banned and has its undeniable place in several articles. Chrzwzcz (talk) 15:48, 7 July 2018 (UTC)
On the other hand - Was it completely necessary to delete Template:User in Czechia and make it a redirection? If someone wants to use Czechia in his/her user page, let him/her. Russians have a choice - Template:User in the Russian Federation, Template:User in Russia - both lead to Russia. Chrzwzcz (talk) 15:59, 7 July 2018 (UTC)

Czechia/Czech Republic[edit]

Czechia is grammatically correct and approved by the Czech Language Institute. Short country name "Česko"/"Czechia" to be entered in UN databases. The short (geographic) name of a country cannot be substituted by its formal (political) name, which is transient and ignores the historic continuity of a given state territory because it is limited only to the existing state form. While the Czech Republic has only existed since 1993, the Czech state has existed in various forms and under different political names for more than one thousand years. As such, the political name can never fully replace a permanent geographic name that does not change in response to changing state forms in a particular territory. - Exactwo (talk) 20:32, 3 July 2018 (UTC)

That wording sounds familiar. Is that you, Jan Blanicky?--Khajidha (talk) 19:22, 6 July 2018 (UTC)
@Khajidha:, to top it off that user only has one edit, this addition to my talk page. R9tgokunks 23:45, 6 July 2018 (UTC)
Almost certainly Blanicky. Somebody say "Czechlands" and see if he says "terminus technicus". --Khajidha (talk) 00:20, 7 July 2018 (UTC)
@Khajidha:@R9tgokunks: Just to let you guys know, these sockpupp...ehem, I mean "Users" are all highly likely part of an organization called the "Czechia Initiative". This is an organization that goes all over the internet (Youtube, Twitter, Facebook, Articles, etc) and attempts to persuade anyone of the use of "Czechia" with sketchy information on various websites in which they own. I noticed their "users" do indeed use very similar language or almost suspiciously identical. Nonetheless, here's some of these websites below:
http://czechia-initiative.com/
http://www.go-czechia.com/
https://www.czechia-heart-of-europe.com/
The organization also runs various Social Media accounts, the facebook one in particular is calling you out and claiming that you are "censoring" them. A man named "Václav Šulista" seems to be the ringleader who is very gung-ho about the use of Czechia. I've also seen "Jan Balnicky" a lot as well and not just on Wikipedia. Again, they use almost identical language.
https://www.facebook.com/CzechiaCZ/
https://twitter.com/visit_czechia?lang=en
https://www.facebook.com/visitczechia/
I just wanted to inform you guys about this borderline propaganda being spread and that we should be wary of any attempts on the use of "Czechia" here. I see you're doing fine work already. Thanks very much. 2600:8805:3B01:BC30:B598:5A3A:EF7B:AAE7 (talk) 23:56, 18 August 2018 (UTC)
Oh, we're well aware of the campaign. I've had numerous encounters with Jan Blanicky's many, MANY socks. So many that I've come to call him "Hanes". --Khajidha (talk) 01:54, 19 August 2018 (UTC)

What you call "campaign" is an official recommendation of the Foreign Ministry of the Czech Republic! https://www.mzv.cz/jnp/en/foreign_relations/public_diplomacy/digital_diplomacy/how_to_use_the_short_country_name.html

The short-form “Česko/Czechia” is preferable in cases where it is not necessary to use the full name “Česká republika/Czech Republic”.

3.1 In which cases it is NECESSARY to use the FORMAL (political) country name?

• Official government documents • International agreements and non-binding official documents such as MoUs • Official top-level meetings of political representatives (table name cards in meeting rooms) 3.2 The use of SHORT country name is recommended in the following cases:

• Cultural, social, scientific, sports (see below), economic and other presentations, and e.g. in speeches by political representatives (unless the speech is made on a highly formal occasion) • Presentations by public figures representing cultural, social, scientific, sports, economic or other national interests • Informal communication, correspondence, literary works, newspaper articles, geographical materials (e.g. maps) • Promotional material presenting the country, its achievements. history and famous personalities • Corporate promotional material

And the Czech government is totally irrelevant to English usage. Just as the British and American governments are totally irrelevant to Czech usage. --Khajidha (talk) 17:23, 20 August 2018 (UTC)

OK, so US Government would be relevant! So why was the link to US Department of State deleted from the article Adoption of Czechia? I am giving it back! https://www.state.gov/p/eur/ci/ez/ Helveticus96 (talk) 14:06, 27 August 2018 (UTC)

Not really. US government usage is not necessarily the same as general US English. Most writing guides in the US actively discourage writing in the same style as the government. Maybe it's a cultural thing, but in the US nobody gives a flying flip what the government says about language usage. It is seen as something that is none of the government's business. --Khajidha (talk) 15:01, 27 August 2018 (UTC)


Yes, "many thanks to all", who prevent the natural fight for common sense. Your "Czech Republic" will never replace action potential of the geographic name, because it is only current state formation in Czechia. It is fantastic, how somebody can appreciate the most absurd approach in Wikipedia, to insist on the transient name of the country and think out perverted keywords, where "republic" covers also the history of the kingdom and other state formations in the history of the Czech state. Congratulations to brainless work. Czechia is an official short form name of the country, which you cannot deny. In that case, you can only erase facts, because they are not in the line of your POV. You are similar to "Socialist Youth" activists during communism. The expression " we should be wary of any attempts on the use of "Czechia" speaks clearly about your "objectivity". Helveticus96 (talk) 11:19, 20 August 2018 (UTC)

Could you please tell me why are you deleting Google usage of Czechia in the part Adoption of Czechia? This should be an "open" encyclopedia? And why those personal attacks? If you take everything so seriously, why are you breaking your own rules? I am not ashamed of my identity, which I openly declare on my Wikipedia user page! Helveticus96 (talk) 08:41, 20 August 2018 (UTC)

As you all can see, it wasn't long for the "Czechia Initiative" to find this conversation: https://www.facebook.com/CzechiaCZ/posts/2069442576459821?__tn__=-R (shocker). This yet again proves my points. Their campaign actions show that they are clearly WP:NOTHERE. When I say "we should be wary of any attempts on the use of "Czechia", I made it obvious that I was pointing the finger at you, the "Czechia Initiative". Also, I just have to say it's completely repugnant because I choose to be anonymous, this is their main point of attack against me. They even claim that I'm an "administrator" here posing anonymous. Yeah, right, suuuure. I hardly would have time to be an Administrator here, let alone have time to edit wikipedia articles. Anyway arguing with this campaign is fruitless as I have learned outside of wikipedia, so I won't waste anymore of my or anyone else's time. 2600:8805:3B01:BC30:8003:3A7D:4039:468D (talk) 21:59, 20 August 2018 (UTC)

Much bigger "shocker" is this name calling! I am not ashamed of my identity, and I am declaring it openly on my Wikipedia page, apparently something, most admins are afraid to do. But calling people by their names is definitively a bad habit! Helveticus96 (talk) 14:15, 27 August 2018 (UTC)

Would you please be so kind and explain to the interested public why are you deleting facts from Wikipedia? The paragraph is called "Adoption of Czechia", the EU adopted Czechia in all databases of Eurostat and in the official list of countries. This is just ridiculous. Helveticus96 (talk) 16:36, 23 October 2018 (UTC)

Probably because the sentence you tried to add was about the purely cosmetic change to the list, the important note about actual usage is already there in the sentence before that. --Khajidha (talk) 19:23, 23 October 2018 (UTC)
Yeah maybe.. probably... it is kind of repetitive. It should have been in the edit summary then. Revert without any explanation is just so rude ;) Chrzwzcz (talk) 20:20, 23 October 2018 (UTC)
We've had this discussion about useless dogpiling before. If you've already said that Organization X announced in March that they were adopting Czechia, you don't need to come back and detail every website, magazine, podcast, etc that they put out. The initial notice is enough. --Khajidha (talk) 21:36, 23 October 2018 (UTC)
I know the people involved are the same. Nevertheless... Chrzwzcz (talk) 05:57, 24 October 2018 (UTC)

Iraqi Liberal Party[edit]

Hello – R9tgokunks just wanted to give you a quick update with regards to your PRODing of the Iraqi Liberal Party article for “Speedy Deletion”. I think you may have missed that another editor deleted references with regards to the Party. I have reverted those edits and added one from Google Scholar from a third party – verifiable and reliable source, that I believe does make a claim to Notability. However, I have not removed your notice, in that though I believe this is a Notable Subject, my knowledge of Arabic Language is so limited I cannot confirm or attest to the variability of the sources. What do you think? Regards ShoesssS Talk 17:54, 18 July 2018 (UTC)

The sources you re-added are all not applicable. Facebook is not a valid source per WP:RS and the journal entry doesn't say anything to support the sentence it is supposed to be sourcing. R9tgokunks 04:04, 19 July 2018 (UTC)

Users with alternate accounts may only vote once.

The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to impose binding solutions to disputes between editors, primarily for serious conduct disputes the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the authority to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail.

If you wish to participate in the 2018 election, please review the candidates and submit your choices on the voting page. MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 18:42, 19 November 2018 (UTC)

Dab link in user space[edit]

You are, of course, free to maintain incorrect links on userspace pages. However, since many such subpages are drafts which eventually find their way to mainspace, and since there is no general mechanism for informing users that an article on one of their subpages has been disambiguated, there is no rule requiring permission for global fixes to be made to subpages. As you are now aware of the error, I leave it to you to decide whether or not to maintain it as such. bd2412 T 21:25, 25 November 2018 (UTC)

this article had corresponding articles in other WPs, including the deWP. which is considerably stricter about notability than the enWP.
