Penn State Dance Marathon[edit]

Hello, Could you please restore Penn State IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon (THON) or possibly Penn State IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon to draftspace? Thanks, Benjamin (talk) 13:17, 14 September 2019 (UTC)

  • Benjaminikuta and Hoyadonis, I have restored it. I see no reason why Penn State Dance Marathon is not a necessary and sufficient title and certainly I can see absolutely no justification for a ridiculous / in the title. Make sure you explain what the (pan)hell the panhellenic bit of the title is all about because it is all Greek to me. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 22:16, 14 September 2019 (UTC)
    Thanks! But what about the other one? I think there might have been multiple deleted articles. — Benjamin (talk) 23:10, 14 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Very sorry, the merge was inappropriate. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 11:39, 17 September 2019 (UTC)

Abduljabbar Surajo Guga - Deletion[edit]

User talk:Tvincent88#Speedy deletion nomination of Abduljabbar Surajo Guga. This is regarding the article for Abduljabbar Surajo Guga, I want know know what type of copyright privacy information do you need from Katsina Post? Abduljabbar Surajo Media Team provided the local news paper the article I wrote. If you check the information is a exactly the headings and structure we have on here. Here is the link for the news paper website showing the date of publication, if you go through my sandbox and review my edit history you'll know I am telling the truth. Help me to the right direction on how to fix this, apparently my intent was never to plagiarism. "" (Katsina Post). They knew I am wring the Wikipedia article so that reached our to gather more information and then I sent them everything I wrote on here. Let me know how to fix this.

  • (talk page stalker) @Tvincent88: Instructions on how to donate text to Wikipedia are located at: WP:DONATETEXT. However, even if you followed those instructions it is is unlikely we would use the material. It isn't often that we find content not on Wikipedia that is written in an encyclopedic way, which includes an adherence to WP:NEUTRAL. The article you copied from is not written in this neutral style, and we would not accept this content as is. We might (might) use it as a reference, but that's the most we would use it for. Regardless of the source of the content for the article, you should carefully read and understand WP:NPERSON before beginning to write this again. Further, please constrain your efforts in draft form until others have had a chance to look at it. Else, it's likely it would be rapidly deleted again as it was here. This is really for your benefit, as it will give you time to develop a nascent article into something we would move into article space rather than delete. If you have questions, let me know. Thanks, -- Hammersoft (talk) 22:20, 16 September 2019 (UTC)


Dear Mr. Haworth, I am writing to ask you change the protection level of an article. In 2011, you deleted an article called InLOBBY because of the advertising and promotion. You also made it fully protected. Not long ago I got an assignment from my Writing Skills professor to write about a travel company, and I chose InLOBBY, as it is a very popular company in my country. However, when I looked for some information about it in Wikipedia, I found nothing. As I have gathered a great deal of information on this topic, I would like to write an article about it here. So I need you to change the protection level to be able to make it come into reality. Thank you in advance. Elenmelkonyan123 (talk) 2:15 PM, 16 September 2019 (UTC)

  • I view your story of a writing skills assignment with the greatest scepticism - you have not entered your name against any school or university project. But I will take you at your word. Use AfC to create draft:inLobby. (Even if the firm shouts the word lobby everywhere, we do not need to do so here.) If the draft gets accepted then unprotection of the mainspace title will be uncontroversial. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 11:39, 17 September 2019 (UTC)

Everything is clear. Thank you. Elenmelkonyan123 (talk) 12:29 PM, September 17, 2019 —Preceding undated comment added 12:29, 17 September 2019 (UTC)

Fadi Haddad[edit]

Hello are you check article before deletion?, are you check sources, or you immediately delete. -- FPP (talk) 10:08, 17 September 2019 (UTC)

  • He even deleted it one of pages for no reasons. — Marik-modder (talk) 10:54, 17 September 2019 (UTC)

British Medical Association[edit]

Hi...Hope you are well. Could you see the recent edits on this. There is one I couldn't revert...looks odd. The article needs improving anyway. Thank you. Whispyhistory (talk) 13:38, 17 September 2019 (UTC)

  • So don't use "undo"! Just select any earlier edit from the edit history. A link saying "restore this version" should pop up. But if it don't, just click on "edit". I fixed it in a non-logged in state. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 14:14, 17 September 2019 (UTC)

ok..will note for next time. Thanks Whispyhistory (talk) 14:38, 17 September 2019 (UTC)

Test edit[edit]

Hello. I need to apologize for this page [1], which wound up in the article space (main space) by accident. You correctly speedy deleted the page. It was actually meant to be one of my sandbox pages - temporarily. I'm an experienced editor [2] so you can imagine that a mistake like this is embarrassing for me. Just wanted to let you know the circumstances. Also, obviously this was a good call on your part. Regards ---Steve Quinn (talk) 15:43, 17 September 2019 (UTC)

File:Grand Central Solari.jpg[edit]

What the heck? I tried to contest the speedy deletion tag (do article tags allow you to remove them but for some reason file tags don't?) and was at work today, and you immediately deleted the file? I had a pretty clear fair use tag and very descriptive rationale. As explained earlier, WP:F7 does not apply because the image was "the subject of sourced commentary" (F7b). Why not talk to me first? I've been editing here a decade; this is an easy way to get me to want to stop. — ɱ (talk) 04:16, 18 September 2019 (UTC)

  • Someone who has been editing here a decade ought to know how to link to an image description page: thus. But I do note that you worked out that the relevant image in this page is in fact a "thumbnail". It looks like all my efforts - see the talk page - may come to nothing. The deletion arguments are probably unanswerable. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 12:50, 18 September 2019 (UTC)

... I know how to link to an image description page. I didn't think I needed to link you directly to a then-empty page that you would remember enough to know how to reply. And yeah, I am very experienced with pulling images off of websites, even searching through the website code or editing the url to find hidden original-quality versions. ɱ (talk) 14:44, 18 September 2019 (UTC)

  • Providing a link is simply a matter of courtesy. Sure, I found the image but I would have found it with fewer clicks if you had provided a link. Note that Whpq provided a link in the message below. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 17:28, 19 September 2019 (UTC)

Laurus Infosystems[edit]

Hi, I had created a page "Laurus Infosystems" but you have reviewed\deleted the page stating that "This submission appears to read more like an advertisement than an entry in an encyclopedia". I am sorry if this violated the norms. I belong to Laurus Infosystems & wanted to put up this page on Wikipedia. There are lot of companies which are listed on Wikipedia, why is my page deleted. Can you please guide me\suggest changes, so that I can create the page for our company. Kind regards, Navink162 (talk) 06:29, 18 September 2019 (UTC)

  • Kindly have the decency to wait until someone with no CoI thinks your company is notable and writes about it here. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 12:50, 18 September 2019 (UTC)

Hi, What do I do now? Kindly suggest. Navink162 (talk) 16:27, 18 September 2019 (UTC)

An hornets' nest[edit]

Can you please put the content i wrote for Draft:Arnold P. Gold into the non-public draft space ? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Thehornet (talkcontribs)

  • So where is this special "non-public draft space"? The ordinary draft: space is, of course, totally publick. OK, pages there are tagged with <meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow"/> but Wikipedia's own search engine indexes them and anybody can find them with enquiries such as: special:prefixIndex/draft:arnold. Your article cannot be restored because it was a copyvio but I can let you have the text - read this. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 17:28, 19 September 2019 (UTC)

Imagineer Technology Group Page Deletion[edit]

Hi there, I saw that you deleted my draft for an Imagineer Technology Group page. This was my first attempt at creating a page, so I apologize if it didn't fit the guidelines - can you please let me know how it can be improved to a point where it could be approved? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 606Orbs (talkcontribs) 21:55, 18 September 2019 (UTC)

  • It may seem trivial, but when I see an article starting with an <h1> heading it screams to me: "newbie and spammer who has never looked at any other articles". That bit I have fixed. The rest is up to you.
Curb Safe Charmer, I know it is spam but it is in draft space so please allow 606Orbs a chance to try and improve it. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 17:28, 19 September 2019 (UTC)
Yes, I am happy for them to have the opportunity to improve it. Lets see how they get on. If you saw my recent question on the AfC talk page I'm keen to strike the right balance between welcoming first-time editors and discouraging promo. Curb Safe Charmer (talk) 18:59, 19 September 2019 (UTC)

Machiavellianism scale‎[edit]

I'm highly dubious about this - this content has been evolving since 2005 at the old Machiavellianism, now renamed Machiavellianism (politics), where you will see it in the history. If it really is a wholesale repeat, this is no doubt because the other source has copied Wikipedia. In any case, we need the subject and you should not have removed the whole article. Please restore it. Looking at the claimed source, clearly an essay by a not very good student, dated 2015, I recognise, copied wholesale near the top of page 18, a passage I wrote myself for St._Bartholomew's_Day_massacre#Reactions "It was in this context that the massacre came to be seen as a product of Machiavellianism, a view greatly influenced by the Huguenot Innocent Gentillet, who published his Discours contre Machievel in 1576, which was printed in ten editions in three languages over the next four years....". You can see it in this version from 2010. The whole crappy piece is clearly made up largely by chunks of many WP articles - check out his section at the end repeating our article Machiavellianism in the workplace. The article even includes our old Machiavellianism, now renamed Machiavellianism (politics) in the bibliography, with the note "All websites have been seen between 10-20th of December 2015". Frankly, you should not have been fooled by this. The article gets lots of views and has many links to it. — Johnbod (talk) 14:27, 21 September 2019 (UTC)

  • I have emailed you the text. Feel free to restore it. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 21:34, 21 September 2019 (UTC)
Why should I - I want the history too? Just de-delete it, or I'll get an admin who will. Johnbod (talk) 22:08, 21 September 2019 (UTC)
Well, someone else revived it, and I have now added the version you emailed me, so some other poor admin will have to do a history merge, since you evidently aren't going to. Another fine mess .... Johnbod (talk) 03:50, 22 September 2019 (UTC)

Template:Quang Binh Province[edit]

Hi, RHaworth! I saw that you moved Template:Quảng Bình Province to a title without diacritics, presumably as a result of this tag. That user has been starting RM discussions and then trying to anticipate the results by speedying the move targets – I've declined a dozen or more of them. For all I know, he/she is right about every single one. However, in this case I think it may have been right before – our article on the province is at Quảng Bình Province. Reverting to the status quo ante would allow the move discussion to take its natural course, if you feel so inclined? Regards, Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 15:24, 21 September 2019 (UTC)

  • Justlettersandnumbers, I don't see any reason why the discussion should take its natural course anymore. The move has been carried out, and I'm ok with that. Please don't be too harsh on everything. RM has more than enough discussion to deal with every day, while this one is not that big of a deal, since renaming this title does not make such significant difference (though it looks awkward to leave one template with diacritics, while others don't). Thus it should not take such a long process. I am just requesting because I can't do it myself. If there's any other way faster than that, please let me know and I'm happy to do that next time. — Cn5900 (talk) 17:49, 21 September 2019 (UTC)
Well, RHaworth, perhaps for the reason I gave above: our article on the province is at Quảng Bình Province? I repeat, I've no idea whether the move was right or wrong, and I care not one jot either way. But I kind of thought that letting the RM discussion take place would allow interested editors to reach consensus on that, rather than allowing one somewhat disruptive editor to determine the outcome. Regards, Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 19:42, 22 September 2019 (UTC)
RHaworth, I guess I'm just gonna ask you to move articles for me then.

In fact that's the thing I don't like about RM, since it takes so long, while we know for sure what the outcome should be. Moreover, the RM discussion I listed to move the articles about Vietnamese municipality only had 2 conversations in it, meaning that not many people are interested in it. Then why should it take such a long process, while not many people will discuss it? I'm only listing it on RM because I was blocked from moving it. I wouldn't have wasted time on that if I could do it myself. Cn5900 (talk) 02:30, 23 September 2019 (UTC)

Modern Latin (disambiguation)[edit]

Hi there. You deleted a dab page I created. I can't see it now, obviously, but the only time I create those types of dabs is for when there is a dab page in a hatnote or "See also" section, as per WP:INTDABLINK. I'm not even sure how to check on that to see if that's the case in this instance, but I've never created a "XXX (disambiguation)" for any other reason.Onel5969 TT me 22:41, 21 September 2019 (UTC)

(talk page watcher) onel5969, you created it as a redirect to New Latin, and it was (correctly) deleted under WP:G14. Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 19:45, 22 September 2019 (UTC)
