Re your November 10 deletion of Talk:Shillary could you please give me access to the text I left there? I had a request that if you were not going to discuss it there that it be moved to either RFD or to Talk:Hillary Clinton. I did that out of the courtesy of not cluttering your talk page, but the courtesy of keeping the message intact was not reciprocated, so that is the step I take now.

This was regarding your October 23 deletion of the term as "implausible" which I contradicted with new sources. I put work into cite webbing them and would like to avoid having to repeat that. — Ranze (talk) 18:02, 21 November 2016 (UTC)

Thank you :) Ranze (talk) 03:16, 28 November 2016 (UTC)

Todd and Clare[edit]

Hi Roger -- back in October you deleted a page for a dating website called Todd and Clare. The same guy, using the same playbook, has stood up an article for another company called Yamie Chess. It was nominated for deletion today. I am wondering if it passes the smell test from your perspective? Regards, pm. (talk) 02:46, 22 November 2016 (UTC)

Retracted. I want to avoid any appearance of WP:CANVAS. Previously I was unaware that was a thing. Sorry to trouble you. ~pm (talk) 00:34, 23 November 2016 (UTC)

Deletion Abstraction Games[edit]

Dear Sir, I wish to inquire why you've deleted my entry of Abstraction Games. It is an existing company and even has links to it from other pages like from this one: Potpourrii . I request that you reconsider this decision. Thanks in advance, Blazy008 -- Blazy008 (talk) 09:57, 22 November 2016 (UTC)

  • You probably have a COI and I should just intone my "kindly" mantra at you. The article deleted after Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Abstraction Games was 16k bytes long and replete with references. Yours was 4k bytes long and lacked references - so what chance had it of survival? — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 23:13, 22 November 2016 (UTC)

Puntoticket article deleted[edit]

Hi Roger, my name is Al. You recently deleted the article about Puntoticket. I was trying to update it, with more information, links, articles, etc to prove that . I understand that the company may not be perceived as important outside of Latin America, but is gaining visibility at international level and is selling tickets for all the big events in Chile. I'm ready to provide more notability confirmations and to change the language, if you perceive it as promotional. Can you please explain me how can I improve more the content, so the article be approved? Thank you in advance for your helm - Aldoaller (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 19:44, 22 November 2016 (UTC)

User SOCK suspected, but no SPI Case?[edit]

Hey RHaworth! I noticed you tagged B.Bhargava Teja as potentially being a Sockpuppet of Bhargava Krishna , but there was no block and no case took to Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Bhargava Krishna. I dunno, were you leaving it there for someone else to take a look at? Also, I'm pondering putting a PROD on Sampoorna Premayanam (B.Bhargava is the article's primary editor from what I see) but wonder if it falls under A7 or (quite possibly, judging by the grammar) G11. Any suggestions? MM (WhatIDo WHATIDO?) (Now THIS... I did.) 00:42, 23 November 2016 (UTC)

There may in fact be enough to tie both of them together, considering the newer account started in 2015 immediately with the same subjects, and the similar name at that too. As for your last sentence, that film is in fact acceptable it seems, and is certainly not A7 or G11. SwisterTwister talk 05:15, 23 November 2016 (UTC)

It is @SwisterTwister: ? Oh okay. The sources just didnt seem to be from verified sources and a Google search didn't seem to bring anything too promising. Then again I never finished Sources at Adoption School. *shrug*. Thanks for putting me right. Good luck if you're opening an SPI. MM (WhatIDo WHATIDO?) (Now THIS... I did.) 07:41, 23 November 2016 (UTC)

  • My feeling was to allow B.Bhargava Teja to continue to operate since they seem to have abandoned the sins of Bhargava Krishna and also their own sin of uploading movie posters and claiming them to be publick domain. But I will leave others to act as they see fit. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 13:26, 24 November 2016 (UTC)

Are articles in this wikilink worth keeping?[edit]

Hi RHaworth, I have joined Wikipedia recently and wanted to understand from you whether the articles in the Student organisations section of this page link below should be deleted under A7: Article about a company, corporation or organization, which does not credibly indicate the importance or significance of the subject). Student organisations in IIT Kharagpur — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lyoko x (talkcontribs) 05:46, 24 November 2016 (UTC)

  • You need to learn how to create a wikilink to a section. I suspect your real question is: "why was KRSSG deleted when two other articles linked to from that section are perfectly firm?" The best advice I can give you is to search this page for where I have used the word "kindly". But you could also follow the advice at the top of the section to which you link and ask at talk:Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur whether your group is notable enough. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 13:26, 24 November 2016 (UTC)

UTC-05:32:11 article[edit]

Why was my article on UTC-05:32:11 deleted for being a "hoax" It is not a hoax. Go to this webpage and select 1800-1849. There are other previously unknown time zones used in the 19th century according to that website, and I intended to make articles for them all. I don't see why we can't have articles for those time zones. Is it because they subtract seconds? We have an article for UTC-00:25:21NASAPeepo (talk) 03:00, 25 November 2016 (UTC)

  • When you write about an article, create a link to it. One argument is that Dublin Mean Time applied to the whole of Ireland while UTC-05:32:11 applied just to Detroit. I have restored it but I recommend strongly that before you create any more similar articles, raise the matter on a suitable talk page and get agreement. Personally I would like to see most of these [[UTC±…]] titles converted to redirects. "UTC-05:32:11" or "UTC-00:25:21" are utterly implausible search terms. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 11:49, 25 November 2016 (UTC)

I will definitely be creating articles for UTC-15:56 and UTC+14:00:24, formerly used in Manila and Anchorage, respectively. Since those subtracted and added the most to UTC as far as I know. Also, I only know for sure it was used in Detroit. As that is the only city in the whole Midwest that has time zone info before 1970 on that website. — NASAPeepo (talk) 18:24, 25 November 2016 (UTC)

RHaworth, you should delete all these alleged time zone articles that were merely local solar mean times before time zones were established in the 1880s, including the Manila, Anchorage, and any local cities. — Preceding unsigned comment added by HkCaGu (talkcontribs)
  • HkCaGu has a point: time zones which disappeared with the arrival of railway time and the electrick telegraph are of no interest. I would also classify user:NASAPeepo's stubs as slovenly. UTC-05:32:11 - was it just Detroit - why did it survive as late as 1905? Find out. UTC+14:00:24 - you should point out that it seems more sensible when expressed as Moscow time+11. UTC-15:56 - no attempt made to explain why the change happened. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 20:33, 27 November 2016 (UTC)

Hotel California[edit]

Can you semi-protect the page to persistent genre warring. — (talk) 11:31, 26 November 2016 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) "Genre warring" is the musical equivalent of nationalism in infoboxes eg: changing "rock" to "soft rock" to "classic rock" and then back again. Some day, I may write a general summary in WP:LAME. In the meantime, article semi-protected for 24 hours; in future, WP:RFPP is thataway. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 13:28, 28 November 2016 (UTC)

Unsalt request[edit]

Hi there, a year ago you salted Luke Ryan. A person by that name has just been drafted in the 2016 AFL draft. Whilst most newly drafted players aren't notable enough for an article, I like to redirect the new players to a list like List of Fremantle Football Club players#Listed players yet to play an AFL game for Fremantle. So, can you please unsalt? Thanks, The-Pope (talk) 15:31, 26 November 2016 (UTC)

  • Create a new article at draft:Luke Ryan. If it gets accepted then unsalting will be uncontroversial.RHaworth (talk · contribs) 20:33, 27 November 2016 (UTC)

Deletion of File:Poly.pov[edit]

Hello, This was a POV-Ray source file used to generate several standardized polyhedron images for Wikipedia. It should not have been deleted. Can it be restored or at the very least moved to some appropriate location? — LucasVB | Talk 15:48, 27 November 2016 (UTC)

  • This thread suggests that .pov is a file type banned on Commons. If you think such files should be allowed, raise the matter in an appropriate forum on Commons. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 20:33, 27 November 2016 (UTC)

Request to restore UkrGasVydobuvannya[edit]

Hi there, I saw you deleted an article I have created. It was not advertising, it was an informational page about the company - a state owned gas producer in Ukraine. Could you explain which information looked like advertisement to you? Could you please restore it / suggest edits. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Yozhik304 (talkcontribs)

  • Kindly have the decency to wait until someone with no COI thinks your company is notable and writes about it here. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 20:33, 27 November 2016 (UTC)

Could you show any piece of information that was of conflict of interest? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Yozhik304 (talkcontribs) 21:22, 27 November 2016 (UTC)

Seriously, ANY not neutral content? Wikipedia is based on 5 pillars and deletion of this article rejects two of them.

Pillar 2: "Second pillar Wikipedia is written from a neutral point of view" - Neither of the provided information had any bias of any sort. Please refer to the Ukrainian version of the page for further details on the company. The English version was only a translation (you can check using google translate).

Pillar 3: "Wikipedia is free content that anyone can use, edit, and distribute". If information is of neutral content - why do you limit my rights to create content? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Yozhik304 (talkcontribs) 21:36, 27 November 2016 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) UkrGasVydobuvannya looks like the Ukrainian equivalent of British Gas, so the odds of Yozhik304 owning a national organisation are fairly slim. (Of course, one could claim that, say, a British Gas engineer shouldn't be editing articles about British Gas or that postmen shouldn't be editing Royal Mail, but I'm pretty sure if I asked the last bloke who read my meter what WP:COI was, he'd probably give me a blank stare and ask me what I was banging on about) I think we should restore the article and send it to AfD to see what consensus thinks. What say everyone else? Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 13:21, 28 November 2016 (UTC)
  • Yozhik304, the COI accusation is, I admit, a gross assumption. When you have a good contributions history on a variety of topics, come back and I will withdraw the accusation. Feel free to raise the matter at DRV.
Ritchie333, yes, I do say that an employee (or in this case, quite likely an intern) writing about a company is COI. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 13:24, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

SORRY, Just new to Wikipedia[edit]

Concerning the page you deleted: Afolabi Osho. I created the page out of misconception about wikipedia uses. I have no regret of you deleting the page. It indeed a good thing to keep out irrelevant message. I will also go through many Wikipedia's Terms and Conditions because I still have many article and edits worthy enough to help humankind.

Deletion review for Consortiumnews[edit]

An editor has asked for a deletion review of Consortiumnews. 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. RekishiEJ (talk) 10:15, 28 November 2016 (UTC)

Fundamental physical constant[edit]

Did you read my rationale for keeping this page at Talk:Fundamental physical constant (disambiguation) before you deleted it? If you did, what was your rationale for ignoring it? Of course, I could have just declined the speedy deletion myself and then carried out the proposed actions, but I did not feel it proper to take an administrative action, and an editor action at the same time over the same issue. SpinningSpark 14:39, 28 November 2016 (UTC)

Yes, that was my intention, except that I was going to move the history since this really was a disambiguation before it was redirected. That's why I didn't want it speedied. Since you consider this to be a purely technical matter, I am going to assume that will not object to me undeleting the history. SpinningSpark 13:36, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

  • Undeleting which history? Talk pages without articles are not allowed. But go ahead - I will not interfere. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 13:46, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

you deleted Jarrett Arnold[edit]

Hey, my brother set up a wiki article for me and I was going to add information to it this evening, thought it would be fun, but it seems you deleted it. I think I have to ask you to reinstate it so that I can edit it. It was called Jarrett Arnold, which is my name. Thanks for this, Jarrett — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jarrettarnold (talkcontribs) 00:26, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

Deletion of "Oilfield Scale Inhibition" article[edit]

You just deleted a new article Oilfield Scale Inhibition without giving any specific reasons. Could you please provide me with reasons for the deletion? Is it because I did not move it to 'article space' before submitting for review? I am a new user and eager to learn from my mistakes and make the article better; I would appreciate your feedback.Thank you. A sample of the article was moved to: Draft:Oilfield Scale Inhibition. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Eampiah (talkcontribs) 18:15, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

  • If "(R2: Cross-namespace redirect from mainspace)" is not specific enough for you, I cannot help you. The whole point of draft space is that articles get reviewed there before they are moved to article space. All of your edits are live with the exception of a redirect.
I note you leaving messages on two user talk pages. These suggest that you are part of a student project. If so, please declare yourselves at WP:SUP. If you are a tutor, you are setting some terrible examples: spurious capitals in titles, boldening section headings and 3.5k bytes of waffle before you got down to the subject. You are not writing an essay! For example you don't tell us what petroleum is - you provide a link to the article which tells us. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 21:42, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

Leanplum deletion[edit]

Just noticed that Draft:Leanplum was removed as a speedy deletion the other day. I understand that the subject is debatably notable, but I am wondering why it was removed for being "unambiguously" promotional when nearly all of the content was cited. The page was very similar to other companies in the industry, such as Mixpanel, which Wikipedia editors voted to keep after it was nominated for deletion. See Apptimize and Appboy for similar examples. — Sbhagwandin (talk) 21:02, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

  • Five attempts to produce a decent article - all rejected. I suggest you should give up. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 21:42, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

Previous attempts aside, I'm not seeing what's wrong with the current version, especially relative to the other companies linked. — Sbhagwandin (talk) 14:24, 30 November 2016 (UTC)

How can I fix the article?[edit]

Hello there, I am an intern and I was assigned to create a page for System Dialing Records. It has been deleted because it appeared to be "unambiguous advertising or promotion". I really need to get this article posted for the company but I am confused about how to make it better. Can you give me some tips about what to change in order to not seem promotional? That would be incredibly helpful! Thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Julietteshipp (talkcontribs) 22:25, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

  • Go back to the people to whom you report and tell them that writing about ones own company is heavily deprecated and that you have too much respect for Wikipedia to break that rule. Ask them to give you some other task. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 16:03, 1 December 2016 (UTC)


It appears a question of your trust. You have deleted hard thought work and titled it as Advertising, G11. I can't construct a notable work without some experimentalism. I understand the copy paste rules and need an template that won't be as easily deleted. If and when you do remove my work could you provide more constructive criticism? None of the previous editors have. -- Dunsinan (talk) 23:00, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

  • Dunsinan, I assure you that the following advice is intended to be constructive. If you continue to try and submit material to Wikipedia you will encounter nothing but frustration and disappointment as each piece gets rejected. Go back to high Dunsinan hill and from there create your own website where you can publish your ideas without fear of deletion. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 16:03, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
