Removal of photographs[edit]

Good afternoon Mr. RHaworth, At the end of May of this year you notified me User: CFHSPAO that you were going to remove the photos from all of the Surgeon General bios that I had uploaded - please see Canadian Surgeon General for the list of individual bios. I would like to know your reasoning behind removing the photographs. When I provided the information on them I listed them as the property of the Department of National Defence (DND) here in Canada and that authorization had been given to post them. I would really like to upload them again and have them stay put, so please tell me anything that I can possibly do in order to ensure that. Thank you so much for your time, I apologize for my lack of understanding of the Wikipedia procedures, I am still fairly new to the set-up and have not been able to fully grasp the ins and outs of certain things as of yet. — User: CFHSPAO 15:03, 23 September 2015

(talk page stalker) Unfortunately, we cannot accept copyrighted files with permission to post them here alone. We can only accept files which are licensed under one of the broader open-source licenses which permit re-use including commercial use and modification. Can you get such permission fron the DND? --Orange Mike | Talk 19:58, 23 September 2015 (UTC)
  • "Remove the photos from all of the Surgeon General bios" - what an hopeless exaggeration. I totally deny saying any such thing. Provide links to my message if you claim different. I have deleted just one image which you had uploaded twice. If the image of Claude Auger from the DND is available with a {{cc-by-sa-4.0}} or compatible licence, then upload it to the Commons. If it is not available under such a licence then uploading as fair use is inapplicable - Condition 1 of this policy would clearly be violated: the guy died in 2006 - there is a very good chance that a free use equivalent could be found - talk to his family. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 20:20, 23 September 2015 (UTC)

Deleted pages[edit]

Dear Mr. Rhaworth, You deleted two of my pages, namely User: A.S. Brown/Remilitarization of the Rhineland and User: A.S. Brown/Suez crisis under the grounds of copy-write violations. I did a few bit of work on those articles relating to those subjects, but since that time, other hands have changed the articles in directions that I find unwholesome. I just created those user pages to provide examples of how those pages should be out of the (probably vain) hope that other users might come around to my viewpoint. I took older, better copies of those pages and used them as the basis of the user pages to create example of how I think those pages should be, so if there are any copywrite violations, it would have been from the older copies of those articles. If there are copywrite vios, these are from the older pages I used, but regardless, if those pages are restored, I will more than happy to remove any copywrite vios. I would really like to have those pages restored so I can address your concerns. Thank you for your time, and please have a wonderful day! -- A.S. Brown (talk) 13:58, 24 September 2015 (UTC)

  • Incidentally do your random scribblings on your user page serve any purpose? And be aware re one of the few times when you wrote anything coherent on the page, Amy may never see it but certainly one other person has seen it - me. As to your deleted pages, text emailed. Bear in mind that if you repost, JustBerry (talk · contribs) may just happen to see them again and take the same view. Also keeping a copy of a Wikipedia article in user space for too long can be considered a copyvio of the original article. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 17:50, 24 September 2015 (UTC)

Dear Mr. Rhawoth Thank you for the e-mails. I will discuss this matter with JustBerry to see where he stands, and proceed from there. I was not aware of the time stipulation-certainly other users have kept copies of article in userspace for years-but I will bear it in mind. With all due respect, I don't believe I have to explain what I write on my userpage to anyone, but I suppose I should be flattened to find that there is somebody out there who has enough free time to concern themselves with that matter. But if you really must concern with matters that do not concern you, it was to bury things so that people like you would not read them-evidently not deep enough. But it does not matter anyway, it will all end under the northern lights. Thank you for your time. -- A.S. Brown (talk) 22:12, 24 September 2015 (UTC)

Deletion of AWeber page[edit]

Greetings Mr. Rhaworth, I see that you deleted the page for AWeber. I represent the company and would like to have the page restored as it provides historical information about our company. There are other email marketing companies whose pages exist still. If it's a matter of updating the page to remove non-factual/historical information, I'm happy to oblige. I would greatly appreciate your help in the matter. Thank you. Narolsonsd (talk · contribs) 14:45, 24 September 2015 (UTC)

I see that you removed an edit I made to another page regarding the deletion of the AWeber page. Can you please restore the page? It provides historical information about our company, similar to other email marketing companies (e.g., MailChimp, Constant Contact, GetResponse, etc.). I am happy to remove any content that is not appropriate. I would appreciate your help with this. Thanks. Narolsonsd (talk · contribs) 11:50, 25 September 2015 (UTC)

  • I reverted your edit to user_talk:rjd0060 because it had totally vandalised the page. There is no point in putting your message back properly because you received your reply at requests for undeletion. As to the AWeber page, kindly have the decency to wait until someone with no COI thinks your company is notable and writes about it here. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 19:03, 25 September 2015 (UTC)

Deletion of my page[edit]

Hello Rhaworth, I see you have deleted some of my page. I would appreciate if I could get the chance to copypaste it, before you just delete without saying it to me. It is really important text that has taken MANY months for me to create. So please, if you could give me a chance to copypaste the text to my computer, it would save my life. Regards from JonasJepsen, 00:23, 26 September 2015 (CEST)

I am talking about my own user page. You deleted my Odense Boldklub statistics and my New York Islanders team. If I could get the text back that you deleted, I would appreciate it. — JonasJepsen 13:46, 27 September 2015 (CEST).

  • Did you see that the words read this above are a link? Follow that link and read. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 08:46, 28 September 2015 (UTC)

I have done that now. Now what? Can you e-mail me my deleted notes. Or do I misunderstand something? — JonasJepsen 19:29, 28 September 2015 (CEST).

Deletion of my sandbox[edit]

Please restore my sandbox User:TrueHeartSusie3/Sandbox2 which you just deleted; JustBerry tagged it for deletion without realising that the page he claims I/Foster's current WP article plagiarize is a mirror site ( click 'read more' and scroll down and you will see Source: Wikipedia). I left a message about this on the sandbox's talk page, and it also showed up on the tag that I had contested the deletion; why on earth was this overlooked and my sandbox deleted?! — TrueHeartSusie3 (talk) 09:06, 26 September 2015 (UTC)

  • TrueHeartSusie3, restored. You have been working on this for seven months and as far as I can see very few of your changes have been transferred to the live article. That smacks of using Wikipedia as a free host. What is your objection to working directly on the live article? At one level it does not matter how many edits you use to achieve a given result but I do recommend you to use "show preview" and "show changes" more and "save page" less. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 10:02, 26 September 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for restoring it! I've not been able to find time to fully concentrate on overhauling the article, and prefer to re-write entire sections in my sandbox before editing the live article. It's usually easier this way, as often a lot of content has to be deleted or completely changed, and I usually don't have time to edit a section in one go. I will try to use "show preview" more in the future though, thank you for the tip! TrueHeartSusie3 (talk) 10:37, 26 September 2015 (UTC)TrueHeartSusie3

@TrueHeartSusie3: You may want to start a discussion on the article's talk page before making an overhaul like that to the mainspace. --JustBerry (talk) 11:37, 26 September 2015 (UTC)

Deletion of WinToFlash page[edit]

Hi! I'm making first steps on the Wikipedia and decided to translate page about WinToFlash from russian wiki to English, because, I believe, it must exists in English version too. This app is good too and has a millions of users worldwide and there is an article about other apps like this - UNetbootin, Fedore Live USB (all for Linux, not for Windows). I created big article with list of all options about this app (this app, so I need this), roadmap, facts, wine start, etc. What did I do wrong? Why did you decide it's ad page - there is no links to buy, download, or others; this is only a description.

Please help me to understand and make the article better, because I'm lost now. — Preceding unsigned comment added by JahrA90 (talkcontribs) 10:24, 26 September 2015 (UTC)

  • I suspect you may have a COI. I did not feel that notability was established. So the best I can offer is deletion review. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 14:11, 26 September 2015 (UTC)

I see this sounds oddly for me but maybe I'm missing something. Can we do this way: I improve my article in the sandbox (I have a copy on my PC) and ask you again to review again as a superior and experienced member or wiki? — Preceding unsigned comment added by JahrA90 (talkcontribs) 15:53, 26 September 2015 (UTC)

Deletion request Vmoney inc[edit]

This user Jay jay ey is removing the speedy deletion template from Vmoney inc and I suspect this user Jayson.ojeda is a sock account of user:Jay jay ey. As the article fails to meet WP:CORP where the sock user user:Jay jay ey kept removing the speedy tag on behalf of the master account user:Jayson.ojeda. I request you take look at the user's activities including the article. —  MONARCH Talk to me 10:34, 28 September 2015 (UTC)

  • User names should be bracketed with [[]] rather than '''. Page deleted sock blocked. Keep watching. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 10:59, 28 September 2015 (UTC)

I have requested an investigation into this sockpuppetery account, You may take look at Sockpuppet investigations/Jayson.ojeda and i need a checkuser to confirm whether both are accessed from same IP. Otherwise there will be risk in repeatedly removal of speedy deletion tags from this individual in the future. And If i used the bracket then that individual also will get notified with this regard where it will create unnecessary arguments here.  MONARCH Talk to me 11:10, 28 September 2015 (UTC)

You actually forgot to block the master account?  MONARCH Talk to me 11:13, 28 September 2015 (UTC)

Unused file Redirects[edit]

Do you use AWB? If so - Wikipedia:Database_reports/Unused_file_redirects could be cleared reasonably rapidly, rather then me doing a lot of semi-manual G6's? — Sfan00 IMG (talk) 13:29, 28 September 2015 (UTC)

  • I am thinking about it. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 22:23, 28 September 2015 (UTC)

Speedy on D4nny.[edit]

Could you explain your rationale for the deletion of D4nny under A7? As far as I see, the article very much made a claim of notability, claiming as such because of his single "Goodbye", and also references the press coverage he had received. Please send me a copy of the article, if you can, so I can more efficiently examine the content. — Grognard Extraordinaire Chess (talk) Ping when replying 12:30, 30 September 2015 (UTC)


I was wondering as to specifically why you deleted my userpage? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Shirugaki (talkcontribs) 18:36, 30 September 2015 (UTC)

  • The content of your page might have been acceptable for an active Wikipedia editor but for someone who has done just eight useful edits and none in the last five months, it becomes a very distinct case of simply messing about, or to fit it to a standard criterion, using Wikipedia as a free host. Come back when you have done at least 80 useful edits and I might consider restoring. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 19:16, 30 September 2015 (UTC)


I'm mjesfahani and I say a great mistake you deleted that supermoon's photo!!! I took it with my own personal telescope bought in institute "Aseman e shab" in Tehran - Iran and it was my own work. believe it or not. I haven't told a lie in my whole life dear. — (talk) 04:18, 1 October 2015 (UTC) mjesfahani

G6 file redirect deletions[edit]

It has seemingly been pointed out by some other contributors, that the deletion of file redirects isn't in fact "uncontroversial housekeeping". It would be appreciated if you could restore the redirects concerned (assuming other criteria) don't apply, until there is a fuller discussion about this matter. Request at WP:REFUND. — Sfan00 IMG (talk) 17:37, 1 October 2015 (UTC)

  • These redirects were doing no harm. But now they have been deleted, there is absolutely no point in restoring them because they serve no useful purpose. The specific example you quote was a classic case of an implausible redirect resulting from a typo ("illusrated") and fully qualified for speedy deletion. It had been viewed just twice during 2015 Aug. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 13:24, 2 October 2015 (UTC)

Fair enough. But the technical concern is expressed in the WP:AN thread where you've already commented. — Sfan00 IMG (talk) 14:31, 2 October 2015 (UTC)

Peter MacKay image[edit]

This image allows non-commercial Reproduction. Please withdraw your objection. Non-commercial Reproduction — Ontario Teacher BFA BEd (talk) 03:20, 3 October 2015 (UTC)

  • There is no need to copy&paste (badly) stuff from the website - I am quite capable of following a link. Please follow this link and read. Quite simply, we do not allow the non-commercial clause. Images must have a {{cc-by-sa-4.0}} or compatible licence and be uploaded to the Commons. Uploading as fair use is inapplicable - Condition 1 of this policy would clearly be violated. There is a very good chance that a free use equivalent can be found - talk to his party office. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 08:19, 3 October 2015 (UTC)

Sarah Hamilton (English artist)[edit]

A page you deleted has been recreated as Sarah Hamilton (English artist), and is still not notable! — Edwardx (talk) 12:43, 3 October 2015 (UTC)

  • I did not feel it is bad enough to speedy. If you think it is bad enough, put it through one of the deletion processes. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 22:08, 4 October 2015 (UTC)

PROD of 卡道斯[edit]

I'm confused. I thought a PROD was supposed to last 7 days? — Adam9007 (talk) 18:22, 4 October 2015 (UTC)

Please let me create again[edit]

Hi RHaworth, you deleted my page this morning because of copyrights, I'll recreate the page without the problem of copy paste. Please contact me before delete my pages then I could fix the problem. thank you — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bastien Gtrx (talkcontribs) 13:17, 5 October 2015 (UTC)

Recent Deletion of Abubakar Usman[edit]

I see you were the deleting admin for Abubakar Usman. Recently, Abubakar_Usman_HCE was created by User:Hausacybers. Even though I understand that by deleting a page, the user's contributions for that page are consequently deleted as well, would there be a way you can check if the creation made for Abubakar Usman were also done by Hausacybers? I'm trying to see if there might be socks present. Ping upon reply. --JustBerry (talk) 19:44, 5 October 2015 (UTC)
