Hi RHaworth[edit]

You have recently deleted several diagrams related to Chirp Pulses. These are part of an article I am writing on Chirp compression, which is (was?) almost complete. It is currently in several sections which I intend to combine for submission. No part of the article is yet saved to Wiki, as I was resolving some problems I had with maths equations, references, and so on before submitting it. Now my article , when I load it up to continue can no longer find the diagrams it refers to. Please undo your efforts so I can continue! Regards, D1ofBerks (talk) 13:19, 12 May 2015 (UTC)

  • @D1ofBerks: for goodness sake! Do you know how to look at your own contributions history? Do you know how to look at your own upload logs? If you don't, find out before you talk to me again. Please give a proper link to one of the images I have deleted and tell me what the deletion log entry says. Why on earth are you uploading here? Stop! Stop unloading images with GNU licences here. They should be uploaded to the Commons. There are 287 other Wikipedias that might wish to make use of your images. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 14:45, 12 May 2015 (UTC)

On Create Protection of Victor Mochere[edit]

Hi RHaworth, I extend my humble greetings from Kenya. Hope you are doing well. I recently tried to create an article titled Victor Mochere but I realized you have blocked it from being created. I wish to humbly request you to unblock it because he is a notable person. He is a published author of Shed My Blood, The Realm and Orders from The Grave novels that can be found on amazon and locally at bookstores. He is one of the finest and bestsellers in the Kenyan Book market. He is also an award winning blogger with the latest blog award being that of African Blogger Awards (2015). He is a public figure and a social media personality. He runs verified social network accounts like his facebook page . he also has massive followers on Twitter to be-feat his notable standards and also on instagram

My humble request is that you create an article about him because information about him is publicly available online or allow me to create an article about him that will be subjected to review by you. It is my prayer that you recognize him Thank you in advance. — Preceding unsigned comment added by John Mokoroo (talkcontribs) 14:55, 12 May 2015 (UTC)

  • What an unmitigated load of flannel. You have joined multiple social networking sites and have come to Wikipedia thinking that it is another one. But it is not. Please also make it your prayer that you be granted the gift of humility so that you may wait until someone else judges you notable enough for Wikipedia and writes about you. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 22:29, 13 May 2015 (UTC)


I'm trying to redirect ZaidAliT to the article Zaid Ali but I've noticed it won't let me do that since the link is salted. Would you be able to remove the protection so that it could be converted into a redirect? Cheers, Mar4d (talk) 10:21, 13 May 2015 (UTC)

One Network Enterprises[edit]

Hi Roger, I recently noticed a page I created on Wiki was deleted by you, I am interested to understand why and hoping you can explain. I was hoping to get One Network Enterprises listed on the site after the creation of the "real time value network" which is a leading concept of managing supply chain and logistics activities in real time. Can you give me some advise on how to get the company listed, so I can develop / add too the branch of sub subject around supply chain technology. Thanks again, Roger. Kind Regards, Chris — Preceding unsigned comment added by Benpank (talkcontribs) 12:21, 13 May 2015 (UTC)

  • The "why" is explained in the deletion log entry. The best way to get the company listed is for you to do nothing. This will save you the disappointment of having it deleted again. When the company becomes notable someone with no COI will write about it. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 22:29, 13 May 2015 (UTC)

Hot Heels deletion[edit]

Hello there. You speedy deleted Hot Heels but I haven't been on here for a while and while I don't know who made it I got a message about it. Please send me the content of the page and I will then be able to fathom the reasons you deleted it (any comments gratefully received), as I believe it ought to be reinstated, as a key historical event for this particular set of sports. I'd certainly like the page anyway to figure out what was up. thanks! — Richardhod (talk) 01:04, 14 May 2015 (UTC)

  • You received the message because (in case you have forgotten) you created it. Deletion was uncontroversial: an article totally devoid of references may have been OK in 2007 but eight years later (and still not a shred of evidence) it is unacceptable. First and last states emailed. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 22:08, 14 May 2015 (UTC)

Another grumpy editor[edit]

The article, Smokestack Hardy. If you think I'm yelling, Smokestack is a nickname, the person was real, I went out for a few so I wasn't available to contest the speedy deletion. If the punctuation was incorrect, that could have been fixed. So, what was the criteria you based his notability on? — Robco311 01:11, 14 May 2015 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by BeeCeePhoto (talkcontribs)

Kingdom Come - Too album cover[edit]

Hello I am still new to editing Wiki and was curious as to what was wrong with my upload for this file: File:Kingdom Come - Too Album Cover.jpg. Let me know what I need to do differently. Thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gumbydeath (talkcontribs)

  • Why are you asking me? I did delete it but immediately restored it. But it deserved to be deleted. I don't know what it looks like on your computer but on mine, at first glance it looks like solid black. I suspect that the original highlighted the text by some technique such as embossing which has been lost in your photograph. I note that there are several other black-on-black images in this Google search but there are some legible ones. Steal one of the legible ones or create you own with Gimp and re-upload. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 20:30, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

Remove from the internet[edit]

Hi, I need to know, When a page has been deleted from the Wikipedia, How long will it take to be removed from the Internet (search engines). Thanks, Chemcol (talk) 17:05, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

  • What's the problem? Worried that your copyvio is now public? You should have thought of that before you uploaded. Seriously though, the answer is a lot longer than it takes to get Wikipedia pages added. I am sure Google takes a new pages feed - it indexes stuff very quickly. But it will remove deleted stuff eventually - within say a month. But keep watching and you will find out for yourself. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 20:30, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

Heaven Knows What Page[edit]

Hi RHaworth, I'm new to Wikipedia and am trying to create a page for <shouting deleted>. I started a page that you speedy-deleted. I'm happy to provide sources for information about the release date, synopsis and news. Sources include industry articles, official festival sites that have screened the film and the distributor's official page for the film. Is there any way for you to retract the speedy-delete as I would like to finish creating the page and Wikipedia noted that I should not start a new page if I had an old one with similar content. Thank you! Best, AW — Preceding unsigned comment added by AbbeyWarner (talkcontribs) AbbeyWarner (talkcontribs) has made few or no other edits outside this topic.

The HIVE[edit]

Hi - we mid-air conflicted on this. I did think about deleting per WP:CSD#G11 but decided the sources (especially the dedicated piece in The Guardian) were okay and we've be better off whittling it down to a stub, so I reversed your deletion and did that. At least it keeps the "why did u delete my article 'x' - it's 10,000% notable please restore it please please please!!!111one11" type of messages down a bit. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 13:13, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

Foregen redirect request[edit]

Hi RHaworth. I noticed you were the admin that salted the page Foregen a while back. There's been a request at Wikipedia:Articles for creation/Redirects to create a redirect at that title to Foreskin restoration#Foreskin Regeneration, where the subject is discussed. I was wondering if you had any thoughts on the matter. It's been nearly 4 years, so I'd understand if you've completely forgotten about this. Best, Mz7 (talk) 01:41, 20 May 2015 (UTC)

Preeta Harit[edit]

Hello Rogers! I'm aware of your deletion of the above article per A7. Subject of the above article is a Commissioner of Income Tax, Delhi and that's an assertion of notability. However, I have no clue of why you deleted the article per A7 because, the criterion does not applies to articles with a claim of significance. Will you consider to restore it now? I have no prejudice against its deletion through WP:AfD if her notability is in doubt but I strongly object to its deletion per the aforementioned criterion. Thanks! Wikigyt@lk to M£ 15:34, 20 May 2015 (UTC)

  • I do not agree that Commissioner of Income Tax is an assertion of notability. She is just a civil servant. I do not see category:Commissioners of Income Tax full of articles about other commissioners. In any case the page was an unreferenced stub. Text emailed. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 16:06, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
Even a single reliable source that discuss a subject in detail is enough to pass WP:CSD#A7. There is no WP:CSD for unreferenced stub and the article shouldn't be deleted as such. The best thing to do is to use a {{prod blp/dated}}. I have no idea of why you feel that a "Commissioner of Income Tax" is not an assertion of notability. Commissioners are the heads of government ministries or departments such as the Lagos State Ministry of Education and Information Commissioner for example, is a notable government official and the office, Information Commissioner's Office is a notable office. See also United States Commissioner of Education. Having said that, Preeta Harit is a Commissioner of Income tax and president of All India Income Tax SC/ST Employee's Welfare Federation and that is an assertion of notability. It is not mandatory for you to see Category:Commissioner of tax, Category:North Dakota Tax Commissioners is a similar category and Category:Commissioner of tax has no effect subject notability. Restore the article and I will stubify it. Thanks! Wikigyt@lk to M£ 17:14, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
  • What do you mean "restore the article and I will stubify it"? It is already a stub. No. You recreate the article with decent references and I will restore the original edits underneath to give credit to the previous editors. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 18:41, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
I forgot that the article is already a stub because my concern is actually on your deletion of the article per A7. Nevertheless thanks for reminding me. However, I don't think I'm ready to create any article for now, busy with some things. Thanks! Wikigyt@lk to M£ 20:08, 20 May 2015 (UTC)

Oru Second Class Yathra[edit]

Re Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Oru Second Class Yathra, When you wrote "No attempt made to provide references", did you mean the author, or that the nominator did not perform his WP:BEFORE? I did, and it was incredible easy to improve. Schmidt, Michael Q. 14:13, 21 May 2015 (UTC)

Hi. You deleted a page in my userspace, stating as the reason that I wanted the page deleted. I did not. The page is this one. I had noticed the speedy deletion notice and I believe I'd left a message on the talk page of the page in question. Could you reinstate it please? Sorry to bother you. Thanks. A L T E R C A R I 20:50, 23 May 2015 (UTC)

I genuinely have no idea. A L T E R C A R I 12:39, 25 May 2015 (UTC)

  • It is tragick. You are ignoring important tools that the MediaWiki software provides. At the top of User:Altercari/Institut Villa Pierrefeu you will see a link "view history". Click on that link. Study the results carefully, then come back and tell me who applied the speedy tag and when - to the nearest second. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 19:17, 25 May 2015 (UTC)

It was me? But how did this happen, seriously? I'm so confused. I do greatly appreciate all of your kind help, by the way. Wikipedia seems not to have a systematic or organised support system for those who are new to the website - a shame. I suppose the upside is that it encourages reaching out to others! A L T E R C A R I 20:51, 25 May 2015 (UTC)

  • How it happened is simple: for some reason best known to yourself you did the utterly pointless thing of copying the delete history of Institut Villa Pierrefeu from its rendered state on your browser's screen into your draft article. Unfortunately this history included {{delete}} which promptly moved the page into CAT:CSD. Of course Wikipedia has organised support - you simply have not tried to find it. You can ask at the Teahouse or you can seek adoption. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 21:31, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

Size efficiency hypothesis[edit]

Deletion of prussiate[edit]

Hi Roger. I see you're a busy admin. (Pages deleted 232,575) and I hold such folk in great esteem.

However, I wonder if you'd reconsider your deletion of prussiate? It was deleted for these 2 reasons:

  • wp:A1 - no context - but then "If any information in the title or on the page, including links, allows an editor, possibly with the aid of a web search, to find further information on the subject in an attempt to expand or edit it, there is enough context that A1 is not appropriate." Surely my wp:SOFT link to Wiktionary would come under the latter description?
  • wp:G1 - Patent nonsense - "Pages consisting entirely of incoherent text or gibberish with no meaningful content or history.". Now I'd suggest the article wasn't this.

Just to reiterate, I know admins do a superb job ... but we all make the odd misjudgment! Best wishes, Trafford09 (talk) 08:42, 27 May 2015 (UTC)

Hi, I noticed you removed the article on the substance rockwool a few months ago under speedy deletion criteria G11 and A7. I am a little surprised, since I remember the article being there in the past and I do not remember thinking even a little (at the time) that it would qualify for speedy deletion, never mind regular deletion (and I consider myself a deletioninst... though by looking over your talk page, it seems you have me at quite an advantage!). I am certain that rockwool is a notable substance and that it has been used for decades for a variety of important purposes, and the fact that I came BACK looking for the article today and found it missing/ deleted is, for me, further evidence of "people" (I know, I am only a sample of one, but still) wanting to find information about it on Wikipedia (I have no affiliation with the rockwool industry and have no coi with regard to the subject). Would the article really need to be recreated from scratch? Is there a way I can get access to the deleted article so that I can reform it in such a way that it will no longer qualify for G11 or A7? I have never wanted to undelete anything before, so the process is entirely unfamiliar to me. Please advise. Thanks! KDS4444Talk 00:26, 28 May 2015 (UTC)

Deletion of Dr. Bonaventura Clotet[edit]

I happened to notice your recent deletion of Dr. Bonaventura Clotet in the deletion log (while chicking my own work patrolling Category:CSD). It seems to me that "He leads a team of over 100 people doing research on AIDS, hepatitis, cancer and metagenomics. He has published over 700 articles in international and national journals." constitutes a claim of significance, which would put A7 off the list.

Deletion of Ad Majesty page[edit]


I think deletion of Ad Majesty page is not well-considered, because the article is about one of the biggest advertising and cretivity agencies in Lithuania. In our country, we have not a huge number of agencies like this, so I think it is a must to have an article about agency in a country like Lithuania. By the way, the company is growing fast, so partners need to find more information about agencie's work and history.

I know I am new in wikipedia, so I will try to do my best and correct this article as much as I can. I am sorry for disturbing you, but I hope you will help me.
