Deletion of Nikolay Nikolaev Todorov[edit]

The article in Wikia site was credited by me and I'm the author of the two of this articles. If it's possible take back the original of the draft. — User: Brassmonger — Preceding unsigned comment added by Brassmonger (talkcontribs) 09:42, 27 September 2018 (UTC)

  • Before anything else you need to ensure that the page at wikibulgaria carries a {{cc-by-sa-3.0}} or compatible licence. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 10:09, 28 September 2018 (UTC)
  • RHaworth, Draft:Nikolay Nikolaev Todorov wasn't a copyright violation. The wikia page from which this was allegedly copied was created after the wikipedia draft – it was created on 1 Sep [1]; the creation date of the wikipedia draft is a bit difficult to trace because of all the times it has been moved, but I can see a version that is at least a week older. – Uanfala (talk) 11:16, 1 October 2018 (UTC)
  • As I have already told you: ensure that the page at wikibulgaria carries a {{cc-by-sa-3.0}} or compatible licence. Also, it should acknowledge that the content is copied from Wikipedia. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 17:06, 1 October 2018 (UTC)
    • I'm a different person from the one that started this thread, RHaworth. My point was that the draft was not a copyright violation. The wikipedia draft was created first; it's immaterial whether the external website that copied it has acknowledged that and it's completely irrelevant what licence it carries. – Uanfala (talk) 20:20, 1 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Oops, sorry - you are different. I disagree: if the article was published here with a cc-by-sa then everybody including its author should abide by those terms. But sheer practicality also suggests that to avoid a repetition of a spurious copyvio tagging, it would be a good idea to put a cc tag on the page at wikibulgaria. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 20:19, 2 October 2018 (UTC)


Hi RHaworth, thanks for your help on Paragon Cafe, Katoomba and Katoomba railway station. I made a mistake on Katoomba railway station and I'm glad that you caught it. A bunch of the articles using the New South Wales Heritage Register have paragraphs copied from that website. I accidentally targeted Katoomba railway station when I clearly intended another article. I have placed a comment on @Rangasyd:'s talk page as he has been working on these articles, including Paragon Cafe, Katoomba. — Leschnei (talk) 22:37, 29 September 2018 (UTC)

Hi RHaworth - @Leschnei: incorrectly tagged these articles because he neither read the attribution section or Wikipedia:Copyright, which would have clearly explained to him that it was correctly attributed with a Wikipedia-compatible license. Can you please undelete that article? The Drover's Wife (talk) 07:25, 30 September 2018 (UTC)

An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect Neorage X. Since you had some involvement with the Neorage X redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion if you have not already done so. — Rhododendrites talk \\ 01:51, 30 September 2018 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Portal:Anime and manga/Anniversaries/November/November 16 Why on Earth did you delete this page? It's not uncommon for portal anniversary pages to have a single entry.

Douglas Bowie[edit]

Hi, if you read the note I left in the talk section of Douglas Bowie's page, you will have seen that this is NOT a copyright violation. I am the creator of the Douglas Bowie page that Wikipedia is claiming is the copyright violation issue. Douglas Bowie, my father, is the author of the content on BOTH that page AND what has been used to create the Wikpedia page that you deleted. You've also managed to put a lock on the page so I can't recreate it. This s important to him and I would like to get the page completed soon. Can you PLEASE remove the lock and reinstate the page, or allow me to re-create it and stop it from being deleted again. This is very frustrating. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Abowie84 (talkcontribs) 19:32, 30 September 2018 (UTC)

Extended content
*@Abowie84: For one, you have a direct conflict of interest in writing about your father. I invite you to read WP:COI. Two, taking content from a website, even one that you own, is very likely to be content that is not written in a neutral tone. Have a read through WP:NEUTRAL. Three, even if it were prose acceptable to an encyclopedia, we can't accept text taken from a website without direct evidence from the owner of the site that the text is released under a free license. We can't accept the word of an editor on this project. Imagine if you will; let's assume for the moment you are not Doug Bowie's son, and someone having no connection to you were to take the content from that website without permission and post it here. That is directly violating your copyright. Have a read through Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. Four; while I certainly don't mean to be rude, your father's desire to have a page here on Wikipedia has no influence on the decision to have one here. -- Hammersoft (talk) 19:49, 30 September 2018 (UTC)

@Hammersoft: There is no way for administrators here to have proof that the content was created on Doug's computer by him without significant intrusion into his (or my) privacy, as it would require uploading screenshots of email correspondence and the metadata for the documents used to create the content, and that he gave permission for its use for this page. The decision is incredibly heavy-handed. And, your comments back are, in fact, rather aggressive and rude. You have also discussed the neutrality of the content without reading it. The content is factual and contains a number of citations to other Wikipedia pages, as well as external corroborating sources. It reflects the tone and style of the content displayed on other playwrights' pages that have NOT been deleted from Wikipedia, nor will they be because they follow the rules - as does this one in terms of the content. If this page needs to be created by a colleague of his in order to ensure that it follows the rules, then we can have that done. But it is still possible that some of the material will be from what Doug has written on his website and what appears on his page - and there still seems to be no way to prove that he has given permission for its use. How can this challenge be overcome? — Abowie84 (talk) 20:09, 30 September 2018 (UTC)

  • @Abowie84: I'm sorry you feel I've been rude when I rather explicitly stated it was not my intent to be rude. I assure you I have no intention of being so. Text based communication is a very limited form of communication. Please, in the future, assume good faith that I have the best of intentions. Thank you. As your other comments; Without communication from the person who created the content, we have no way of verifying if the content is available under an acceptable license for our use here. All content here, with limited exceptions, must be available under a free license. That's the very nature of this project. You are correct; I have discussed the neutrality of the content without reading it. This is because I am not an administrator and thus can not read deleted content. I was speaking in the abstract; that language used here on encyclopedia articles must be neutral in tone. I was not specifically addressing any content you wrote or copied from elsewhere. As for citations to other Wikipedia pages; we don't cite Wikipedia as a source. See WP:UGC for why. If you or your father wish to donate material to Wikipedia, then please follow the instructions at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. -- Hammersoft (talk) 20:21, 30 September 2018 (UTC)
@Hammersoft: I generally do give people the benefit of the doubt, particularly over text. But including the comment about your intention unfortunately does not necessarily mean that your comments do not come across in that way. They just seemed to be almost condescending, that's all. We all read things differently, so it's not a big deal. I just voiced the way I received them. No harm done. So, how would one demonstrate that communication had been had between the copyright holder and the author of a particular page? Is there a Wiki page that you can point me to that could assist with that? Donating material does not seem like the appropriate route for this instance. In terms of the content, while I understand your original comment, effort was made to ensure that the tonality was factual and neutral. I reiterated this point many times while the content was being edited (it is not a direct pull from the other sites, so there must have been just part of it that got flagged for copyright issue). I feel like there needs to be a better mechanism for deleting and blocking sites, perhaps where the administrator needs to communicate with the author first before applying the deletion or particularly a block. It seems too easy for administrators to delete pages, without any repercussions for deleting them without cause or consideration. I would like to hear from the individual that placed the block on this. It would have been more responsible and appropriate for them to have communicated with me before doing so, and giving me an understanding of what needed to be modified - and, as you said, giving me the benefit of the doubt (and actually reading the comments I made in the talk section for the page) and allowing me to explain and/or demonstrate that it was not a copyright issue at all. I would have happily had all of this discussion earlier in the process, i.e. before a deletion or block. But, at this point (and I am sure this is the case with many people who have pages deleted unnecessarily), I am frustrated and annoyed because my time has been wasted for no reason. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Abowie84 (talkcontribs)
  • @Abowie84: Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials is the place you need to review, in particular WP:DONATETEXT from further down in that page. As for a different procedure on blocking sites; if we allowed site owners to have a say in whether we delete their content on here, we would lose control of the project. Literally hundreds of thousands, even millions, of companies and artistic creators try to get their content onto this project. We simply can not do as you suggest. Yes, it is easy for administrators to delete pages. However, administrators are carefully vetted before they are given such privileges. Administrators are expected to follow our Wikipedia:Deletion policy. If they did not follow that policy, there would likely be repercussions in doing so. From what I can see, Draft:Douglas Bowie was deleted three times in relatively rapid succession for violating the copyright of this page, which clearly notes on the bottom of the page that the license is CC-BY-NC 4.0, which is incompatible with our licensing here. This is a proforma deletion; if text is copied from a source such as this and it is placed here, it will be deleted as we simply will not accept material that is not compatible with our licensing requirements. In this case, it's because of the -NC part. We insist on having material that can be used commercially. I'm going to bow out of this conversation now. I think I've commented on the salient points and pointed you to the appropriate locations. Hopefully I've been of some help. All the best, -- Hammersoft (talk) 22:14, 30 September 2018 (UTC)
  • What an inordinate amount of chat. All that needs to be said is to point out the NC clause. In any case Alison, kindly have the decency to wait until someone with no CoI thinks your father is notable and writes about him here. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 17:06, 1 October 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for solving this particular example, but there are other categories around having the same problem, at least a few siblings of Category:1099 by country but possibly also categories in entirely different trees. — Marcocapelle (talk) 11:25, 2 October 2018 (UTC)

  • Provide links! - learn the colon trick. It does not need admin rights to fix this. Go to the cat in question and click on "edit this page" and then click on "publish changes" without actually doing any.

ASCII 128 to ASCII 300[edit]

Hi Roger, thanks for deleting ASCII 128. Any chance you could also delete the other redirects in this series up to ASCII 300 per my request in the hatnote at the former ASCII 128 redirect? They were all created by the same user, and R3 applies to all of them. If it helps in any way to reduce your workload I could create a list of links to them, but I'm not prepared to nominate them all individually. (ASCII 0 to 127 and any 4-digit numbers should not be speedy deleted, though.) I know, a mass-nomination is a bit unorthodox, but I really think these particular redirects don't need nor deserve individual discussions, but I'll leave that up to you. What do you think? Greetings. -- Matthiaspaul (talk) 18:34, 3 October 2018 (UTC)

Great, thanks. Here are two more: missed one ASCII 132 and typo ASCII63. -- Matthiaspaul (talk) 19:48, 3 October 2018 (UTC)

Creating "History of Borussia Dortmund"[edit]

Hi Mr Haworth, My name is Wayne, I'm a first-year student from University of Sydney. I'm studying a subject called "Writing for Digital World" this semester, which we study about how to contribute to Wikipedia. The assignment we are currently working on is creating a new article on Wikipedia. I chose "History of Borussia Dortmund" because it was listed on "Requested Article". Last time by my mistake I created a blank page on "History of Borussia Dortmund", and got speedy deletion. I understand that and sorry for the inconvenience. Now I’m writing this new article by myself using reliable sources online. It will be inevitably including some repeated information on page *Borussia Dortmund, but I will be covering more detailed information that was not on that page. We are still drafting our article, so it might be published within this month, and before publish to Wikipedia, article we written will be reviewed by peer also our tutor to ensure it is a “good article”. Thank you for understanding, please let me know if you have any questions. Wayne — Preceding unsigned comment added by Seraveeye (talkcontribs) 14:08, 4 October 2018 (UTC)

Hi there, you deleted photos I uploaded recently, 11-17 Screen Acting and Film Camp 2018.png and A movie still from The Cullercoats Fishlass.png. I am the copyright owner of the photos. Please would you replace them, or let me know the process I need to go through to avoid having them deleted again? Many thanks, Obsteve (talk) 16:29, 7 October 2018 (UTC),

"Provide proper links to the photos". I can't, they've been deleted! "Explain why you uploaded them as PNG files" noted, I had no idea there was a size limit. I can easily upload smaller jpg versions. You can see a similar deleted photo currently on our page Act 2 Cam. I would be very grateful for any pointers letting me know what I'm doing wrong. Thank you, Obsteve (talk) 17:17, 8 October 2018 (UTC)

  • I will reply properly but first, sorry to persist: if you had not provided links, I would have forgiven you but you have provided links - invalid ones! When you edit this page there is a box at the top headed "wikify!". Please read from "you should". (Hint: this edit is in your handwriting.) As to PNGs: there is a file upload limit - 100M bytes. But that is not the point: why did you choose PNG rather than JPG for upload here when you used JPG to upload to Twitter? I note that your own website is inconsistent with PNG, PNG but JPG. Is it something to do with how you capture stills from a movie file? — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 10:44, 9 October 2018 (UTC)

Hi there, I am not very savvy with png/jpg differences. I don't have a very technical brain, I just took a screen grab on my computer. It might be default to png, I'm not sure. I just find it easy to hit cmd +shift +4 on my mac and, presto, I have an image! I don't run the website, and can't vouch for the content or explain the inconsistency. I can ask, though. It's not urgent to get the photos up, I was just confused as to why they were deleted. I guess I need to read the instructions a little better! I have read some of the discussion regarding their deletion now, and will need to mull it over. Meantie, thank you very much for your assistance Obsteve (talk) 12:27, 9 October 2018 (UTC)

  • Obsteve, for some reason I am taking pity on you. The links you should have provided are this and this. Can you see the difference? In order to make them acceptable, use the photos on a page on accompanied by a clear {{cc-by-sa-4.0}} licence declaration. Then upload them to the Commons as JPGs with a {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-4.0}} licence and giving the source as the page. You could also mention that they are used on your Twitter account page. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 17:16, 10 October 2018 (UTC)

Hi RHaworth thank you very much, I really respect your time to explain this. I can see the difference, and I will go to the website for reference in future, making a clear declaration. I screen-grabbed the videos and, because they were not in the public domain, I posted the photos retrospectively on my twitter feed under the misapprehension that would help. Stupid eh? Many thanks once again! Obsteve (talk) 22:04, 10 October 2018 (UTC)

C. Anbarasan[edit]

Please can you restore C. Anbarasan, which you just deleted as A7. He was an elected representative of a state assembly and therefore notable. In any event, the nominator was mistaking notability for credible significance and thus not abiding by A7. - Sitush (talk) 18:10, 7 October 2018 (UTC)

  • Has now been restored. Sitush, it is article suicide to try and develop in mainspace. That is why we provide user space and draft space. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 10:58, 8 October 2018 (UTC)

Yes, SpacemanSpiff spotted it. I think that is the first time I have had an article deleted, and I've created a fair few directly in mainspace and only perhaps seven or eight in user space (all of the latter many years ago). There isn't much to say about the guy, or at least not through Google searches, but he is inherently notable as an elected representative of a state legislature and the article as it was then did have that sourced. I'm surprised you didn't realise that but, hey ho, it was probably just human error because I know you do a lot of CSD work. No worries. - Sitush (talk) 11:47, 8 October 2018 (UTC)

I couldn't contest the deletion on time as I was not logged in on the Wikipedia at that time. Please note that the article was reviewed by experienced Wikipedia users. It was written on the basis of reliable sources, and there are some that I haven't inserted yet. I believe that Non-compromised Pendulum should not have been tagged for a speedy deletion, as there was not a single phrase which meant to be a promotional one, as the whole text was based on sources only. For these reasons, I kindly request to restore the article and give some recommendations on how it can be improved. — Aspireforintelligence (talk) 15:54, 11 October 2018 (UTC)

Restore page that was deleted[edit]

Hello Roger I am trying to restore a wiki page that has been deleted by yourself. If there is a problem with the neutrality of the language I am quite happy to go through and edit it so it is neutral This is the link. Any help restoring it so I can edit the problems with it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Weebucker (talk) 16:59, 11 October 2018 (UTC)

  • Any article that contains a section "our squads" condemns itself for instant deletion in my book. I am amazed that it survived for four years. You could try and re-submit via AfC but it would be better if you would kindly have the decency to wait until someone with no CoI thinks your club is notable and writes about it here. Text emailed. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 10:09, 12 October 2018 (UTC)

Copernicus Emergency Management[edit]

Dear RHaworth, Why did you delete the page? There is no copyright infringement at all... Under Copernicus Regulation (EU) No 377/2014 (document duly referenced in the page) and Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 1159/2013, the information produced by the Copernicus Emergency Management Service shall be made available to the public on a full, open and free of-charge basis. Verify it directly at its Data & Dissemination Policy. "Information produced" covers also the website itself. Besides, I have an explicit permission of the owner to post it here. So why exactly did you delete it, without raising a question or reading the documents yourself ? — Preceding unsigned comment added by O.dvorak (talkcontribs) 10:36, 12 October 2018 (UTC)

WikiUCFCOM/DLEMERGEBM block appeal[edit]

Hey RHaworth! You soft-username blocked "WikiUCFCOM" back in March. The user has now changed their username to DLEMERGEBM. Do you have any objections to an unblock? Best, Kevin (aka L235 · t · c) 02:59, 13 October 2018 (UTC)


Do you think that these two accounts are controlled by the same person? Both User:Mannu AB/sandbox and User:Lkmad/sandbox contained/contain very similar Java code which is written to interact with an SQL database. It seems unlikely that even one person would create a sandbox page for this, so it suggests to me that these accounts are linked. Both accounts only performed one edit (the creation of the strange sandbox page). What do you think? Dreamy Jazz 🎷 talk to me | my contributions 19:28, 14 October 2018 (UTC)

I have opened a WP:SPI case. Dreamy Jazz 🎷 talk to me | my contributions 20:10, 14 October 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for your reply. I have seen several new users do exactly the same thing (found through Special:NewPagesFeed). I have added an extra 4 usernames to the SPI report Wikipedia:Sockpuppet_investigations/Madnk who do exactly the same thing. I am not sure that the sockpuppeteer is Madnk (rather is a sockpuppet) but I could not find similar cases and do not know who the mastermind behind this might be.

2019 Big 12 Baseball season template[edit]

Why Did you delete the Big 12 Baseball season template for because some schools have announced their 2019 schedueles. — (talk) 13:09, 15 October 2018 (UTC)

Could I get some help/advice please?[edit]

Hi, I was doing NPP a couple of days ago & came across a poorly sourced/formatted article Michael Ugwu with a heavy promotional slant. I did some cleanup & added sources but also added some material about issues. One of the 2 people who's been editing the page looks like they might have COI issues and keeps removing the well sourced negative material with little or no explanation and a refusal to discuss it on the article talk page or their own talk page. I don't want to get dinged for a 3R situation or an edit war, you're one of the admins I know deals with this a lot so I'm hoping for some advice on how to proceed. Thanks!

  • Someone who leaves an edit summary such as this one does not command any respect at all. If you and I revert them alternately, we can block Illmacul8 under the 3RR if appropriate without running the risk of our selves committing the same offence.
Advice to you: please read this and fix all the naked URLs you have added to the Ugwu page. I feel that use of wiki jargon is something very likely to put off new users. Even when writing to experienced users, I would never use WP:NPP, CoI or 3RR without making each one into a link. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 20:21, 16 October 2018 (UTC)

Section removal[edit]

Good evening, I noticed we have been having issues with the Controversy part of the page been deleted, this is because, the Wikipedia page is been created and some parts will love to be kept off it as the page is just to serve as a general information page and nothing more.

Even though there are links online, the story behind the links are quite malicious, and that is the main reason the page is created. So not including that part will be very useful, thank you. I know some information can be left off a page if wanted, and would like that information yo be left off, I am sorry for the back and forth for a while. Thank you for your understanding. Warm regards, Illmacul8 (talk) 21:00, 16 October 2018 (UTC)

  • I have no idea what you are talking about. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 10:17, 18 October 2018 (UTC)

why did you delete my user page?[edit]

I got rid of all the irreverent content so why did you delete it anyway? — Drowningseagull (talk) 10:38, 17 October 2018 (UTC)

  • Possibly edit conflict. I had the page open showing an unsuitable state and deleted on the basis of that. Meanwhile you removed the irreverent content without my noticing. Partial restoration done. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 10:17, 18 October 2018 (UTC)

deleted page[edit]

Hi I was just wondering why you deleted this article: brainspotting. If you could please provide detail regarding the issue with this article. Thanks! Elloyd47 (talk) 08:21, 18 October 2018 (UTC)


Yikes sorry can you delete this page again? I re-tagged it because I didn't complete the Twinkle tagging process the first time, just as you were deleting it. It was re-created as a result. — Bennv3771 (talk) 09:18, 18 October 2018 (UTC)

  • It should be automatick: when you write about a page, create a link! — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 10:17, 18 October 2018 (UTC)
