Draft:Polystar deletion[edit]

Hi, I would like to use new text for this article, which was last deleted by you. Instructions on the page Draft:Polystar state to contact the deleting admin before making edits. How should I proceed? Thanks in advance. Guy redmill (talk) 10:37, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

  • The only thing I have to add to the advice you were given here is: kindly have the decency to wait until someone with no COI thinks your company is notable and writes about it here. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 12:27, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

Grand Theft Auto V hoax pages[edit]

Hi RHaworth. I wonder whether you should block the author of the GTA V hoax pages you just deleted. The thing is that these were not your routine hoax articles: it seems that they were actually a way to lure readers to a fake download page that tries to convince people to install what I can only assume is malware. (For instance [1] where the hoax evidence includes poor grammar, low-quality images of the company's logo and a video teaser that never mentions an Android version). — Pichpich (talk) 00:20, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

Theoretically, you can run a (watered down) version of GTA V on a high-end Android device, so that is more or less plausible, but yes, I'm no stranger to those blatantly obvious scams either. It's either a worthless survey made by black-hat affiliate marketing firms where they get paid for every unwitting user who falls for the scheme, or a variation thereof with a fake, malware-laced APK. I'd say you better block the scammer in question, and have the site blacklisted (or better yet, reported to the likes of Scamvoid or MyWOT). — Blake Gripling (talk) 03:23, 24 November 2015 (UTC)
  • I have blocked them. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 12:19, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

Draft:"Block "FACT"[edit]

How does Draft:"Block "FACT" become a cross-namespace redirect from mainspace? — (talk) 10:23, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

  • You are a pedant. Redirects from draft: space to mainspace are harmless. But if I see one proposed for deletion, the simplest thing seems to be to delete it. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 12:19, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

New Queens Park[edit]

Hello, could I please have the text of a deleted article? I created New Queens Park some time ago, and it was deleted. Since then, it has been recreated, and has not been deleted for a month now. If I remember correctly (and I mightn't) my article was more in-depth and better-sourced. So, it would be appreciated if you could provide the text. Thanks, Jjamesryan (talk) 02:27, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

Forgive me if I'm missing something, but what did you actually do? My watch list says that you restored 12 revisions, but I can't actually see any difference on the page, it's still the new version. — Jjamesryan (talk) 22:31, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

  • You are definitely missing something! Despite having been on Wikipedia for more than a year and clocked up 5000 edits, you apparently have not learnt how to read an article's edit history. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 00:57, 26 November 2015 (UTC)

Ah. Sorry, thought you'd rectify the text in some other way. — Jjamesryan (talk) 01:19, 26 November 2015 (UTC)

Need info[edit]

I've published Kambhampadu, Pedakurapadu mandal. I got doubt if I'm eligible for publishing drafts? If yes, that was declined for another user who created, I've updated info and published. -- Vin09 (talk) 13:13, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

  • There is no need to ping me on this page! I have no idea what your sentence "if yes …" means. Obviously you should not publish a draft that you have created yourself but beyond that, I am not aware of any rules about who may publish. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 14:48, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

No, another user created, I improved and published. Any ways thanks.--Vin09 (talk) 14:53, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

Why Prowareness page was deleted ?[edit]

Hi RHaworth, Why have you deleted the page without checking with the creator. However I assure you that I have gone through all the terms and conditions of before doing the same. All the contents in the article are true to best of my knowledge and of neutral point of view. We will not be doing any promotion or advertisement using the Also we have just started the article and are in process of updating the article with proper and decent content which might be helpful for the community. Again , It just information which we shared. I request you to help me in retrieving the deleted material please enable the page. Thanks, Sanjiv04 (talk) 11:27, 26 November 2015 (UTC)

  • You are a spam-only sockpuppeteer. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 17:14, 26 November 2015 (UTC)

Sandbox reset[edit]

Hello I have noticed that you recently cleared my sandbox due for the reason that it was a "promotion only" page. However, I oppose this point because I was working on a barebones sketch of what could have eventually become a draft. Since nobody view sandboxes for information purposes anyway, I see absolutely no reason for this edit. I'd like to continue working on drafts in my sandbox as I have no other place to do so over the span of several days rather than one; I have no time to finish a draft in one day. Please excuse this. — AnonymousMusician (talk) 12:53, 26 November 2015 (UTC)

  • I tend to agree with Widefox's assessment that you are a spam-only account. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 17:14, 26 November 2015 (UTC)

The article National Centre for Excellence has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Not enough content.

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.

In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. — Dat GuyWiki (talk) 14:27, 26 November 2015 (UTC)

Luis Hinojosa Galindo[edit]

Dear admin, The page I mentioned at the subject Luis Hinojosa Galindo should be restored. The man I talk about (Luis Hinojosa Galindo) is starting to be know in Spain as a good sculptor. I consider he can appear in Wikipedia. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:48, 26 November 2015 (UTC)

Gagauzia in the Bala Türkvizyon Song Contest[edit]

Hello this is User:KingDriverFC. A week or so ago you deleted the page Gagauzia in the Bala Türkvizyon Song Contest. Can I please ask you if I can re-create this page? Thank you in advance KingDriverFC (talk) 20:27, 26 November 2015 (UTC).

  • Please learn the difference between "can", "may" and "should". Of course you can re-create it - the title is not protected. Yes you may re-create it - you are not subject to a topic ban. Whether you should re-create it is the question if it runs the risk of prompt re-tagging for deletion. But I note that all the other "foo in the Bala Türkvizyon Song Contest" articles exist and, at a quick glance, are not significantly better than yours so you just seem to have been unlucky.
I shall certainly stand back and take no action if you re-create it. But before you do so, I recommend that you contact KDS4444 (talk · contribs) who applied the speedy tag and ask the direct question: "why is this article worse than the twenty articles for the other participants". — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 22:06, 26 November 2015 (UTC)

Page creation[edit]

I would like for you to create a page about a musical artist that has tried to be created multiple times by unprofessional editors. What kind of resources do you need exactly to create the page? His page is locked and can only be created by administrators. — Preceding unsigned comment added by jccreateguy (talkcontribs)

  • My lord JC, the required resources are the same as for any page. But in this case you should create in draft: space. If the draft is accepted, unprotection of the title in mainspace will be uncontroversial. Telling me the title of your proposed page might well elicit more information. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 11:28, 28 November 2015 (UTC)

Indeed it was a hoax[edit]

The article- 2015 New York poisoned turkey incident, which I nominated for speedy deletion and which you deep sixed it. It's one and only reference, was taken down as seen here[2]. Still I don't think was the best example of fiction writing at Wikipedia. If I had to make a nomination, it would be this[3]. Cheers....William, is the complaint department really on the roof? 17:46, 27 November 2015 (UTC)

Deletion review for Susie Abromeit[edit]

An editor has asked for a deletion review of Susie Abromeit. 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. — Taku (talk) 03:28, 28 November 2015 (UTC)

The Knowledge Centre for Agriculture Deletion[edit]

[Title width guide. Delete above here if no further edits - already in archive. If further edits, move below here.]

Nicole Hamilton[edit]

You speedy deleted Nicole hamilton as WP:A7 and WP:G12, but it's hard to understand how you decided it fit that criteria. The tiny fragment captured by Google Search indicates the article reported, "Nicole Hamilton is the the head in Hamilton Laboratories and owner of Hamilton C shell. She studied BS and MS from Stanford University and did her MBA from ..." We have an article on Hamilton C shell, which she wrote, and that certainly is at least some indication of importance, not what I think anyone would would expect satisfies WP:A7, "No indication of importance". And in that fragment, there was certainly no obvious WP:G7, "Unambiguous copyright infringment." The article has been requested at WP:Requested articles/Biography/By profession#Computer scientists with evidence she may meet WP:N per WP:CREATIVE and/or WP:ACADEMIC. My take is this should not have speedied and that if there were questions about notability, it should have gone to WP:AFD. I urge you to reconsider. Msnicki (talk) 04:54, 28 November 2015 (UTC)

  • The lower case h in the title told me that I was dealing with an inexperienced editor. The absence of independent references confirmed that. I have emailed you the text. A properly referenced article might well stick. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 11:28, 28 November 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for sending me the text. I agree this looks like the work of an inexperienced editor, possibly one for whom English is not a first language. I see there are a number of problems with the article, in addition to the lower case H. For example, the titles for her previous positions are garbled (translations of translations?) and it's somewhat out-of-date. She has 9 patents, not 7, and the line count is now reported as roughly 250,000, not 160,000. (But that's not this editor's fault; the referenced bio page is out-of-date compared to her CV.) But still, I think a credible assertion of notability has been made by identifying her as the author of a notable product about which we have an article. Our guidelines ask that we keep articles for which there are sources or other evidence (e.g., per WP:CREATIVE) supporting notability even if the sources have not been cited. We don't delete these articles, we fix them. I think this was not a valid A7 speedy deletion and certainly not a valid G12. It should have been moved to a correctly capitalized title and, if you still wanted it deleted, taken to AfD. Msnicki (talk) 15:33, 28 November 2015 (UTC)

I'm trying to square your remark about the lower case H being evidence of a new user with Davidwr's impression [4] that you moved it to that title inside his sandbox and then to userspace, then deleted it. If accurate, that doesn't seem like the best way to treat a new editor, especially coming from an admin. Can you respond, please? Msnicki (talk) 19:45, 28 November 2015 (UTC)

(In response to a comment that appeared and then disappeared) I would like to clarify that I'm simply confused about the sequence of events and unable to look it up myself. So I truly don't know what happened. But in the end I think this was probably not a valid A7 nor a valid G12 either, no matter what the bot thought. The only thing I'm pretty sure is that this one should have gone to AfD, where I think it would have attracted some rescue efforts and the outcome would have been keep.

Oulunkylän tekojäärata[edit]

You shouldn't have erased this. A sports arena which has held the final game in the world championship of a major sport is of course relevant for Wikipedia. — Snowsuit Wearer (talk|contribs) 01:34, 29 November 2015 (UTC)

  • An article devoid of references is an insult. You could not even provide a {{coord}} link. I have moved it to User:Snowsuit Wearer/sandbox do not move it back until it is properly referenced. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 09:03, 29 November 2015 (UTC)

You don't have to become impolite just because you feel personally insulted by stub articles. Don't move things to my sandbox, you have no right to write in my sandbox. — Snowsuit Wearer (talk|contribs) 18:03, 29 November 2015 (UTC)

Filthy Frank[edit]

Hello, I was trying to find information on the Youtube celebrity Filthy Frank, but couldn't find anything due to its deletion on 29 April. Why was it deleted? Would I be able to retrieve the article? I'm interested in the topic as the man has several personas and it is difficult to verify whether or not Filthy Frank is one person or several people. Any assistance you could provide would be much appreciated. — (talk) 10:10, 29 November 2015 (UTC)

  • As you can see here, I usually refuse to talk to IP addresses. But in your case, I shall assume that you do not have an account. I have emailed you one state of the article. The most recent state consisted simply of: "Papa Franku. All praise the dark lord chinchin as he has done the world a great favor." — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 11:48, 30 November 2015 (UTC)

Holding of Wrist Deletion[edit]

Earlier this month on the 14th you deleted the Holding of Wrist page that I created. If possible, I would like to be able to adjust the article to include the necessary information that got it speedily deleted in the first place. What brought me to write about Holding of Wrist in the first place was my belief that it is a growing organization that interacts with hundreds of thousands of people on various subjects related to mental health. I realize I’m still new to writing on Wikipedia and had read the rules and regulations before posting, but I must have missed something. I’d like to correct my error if that is possible.
