Ten Years

On 2015 Jan 1, I joined the Wikipedia Ten Year Society.
Will I make it for another ten?


Lebanese Muslim Association[edit]

Hi, I have seen that you deleted my Wikipedia page that I created named Official Lebanese Muslim Association. You cited that it was a duplicate of another Wikipedia page called Lebanese Muslim Association.

We are the Official organisation based here in Sydney Australian and I;m the media manager of our organisation. I have been trying to set up this page for month's but it keeps getting deleted because the other account' Lebanese Muslim Association has incorrect information and was created by someone who has the wrong intentions, even the image they have used is the wrong one of our mosque and organisation.

Can I please have the information you deleted and ask you please restore the page or I will be creating another one. I don't understand what gives you the authority to delete my page when we are the official organisation. I have also contacted Wikipedia and notified them so I can figure out who the other person is who has created the Wikipedia page.

I ask for you to please provide me with he content you deleted. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Widyan Fares (talkcontribs) 00:22, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

  • You don't need to "contact Wikipedia" (whatever that means!) to figure out who created a page - learn to read an edit history! Clearly you have very little concept of what an encyclopedia is. These edits were little better than vandalism. You completely replaced a well-written and well-referenced article with your own unencyclopedic piece being largely a cut&paste job from your website. Ideally, because of your COI you should not be contributing to the page at all but correction of errors will be OK providing they are properly referenced. Any major changes should be discussed on the talk page first. Provide you with the content I deleted? You already have it! Here and on adjacent pages. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 14:58, 27 August 2015 (UTC)

You're still not getting it. The page Lebanese Muslim Association does not have the right information and I tried creating it but you kept deleting it. I also tried editing the page I linked but they got rid of my edits. All I want is to be able to correct the misinformation because whoever has created that page has not done their research despite the links they have, it's not an accurate depiction of the organisation. I'm not an expert on Wikipedia nor do I want to be. I just want to make sure the Wikipedia page is at least updated even the pic they use is not of the right mosque so could you please tell me how I contact the creator of Lebanese Muslim Association. As for your 'vandalism ' comment I rewrote all the information in my own words from scratch and was in the process of referencing before you jumped the gun and deleted the page. Also the page I linked is not well referenced because all the information is wrong! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Widyan Fares (talkcontribs) 02:39, 1 September 2015 (UTC)

  • You are the one who is not getting it. Let's start with the easy one: the image is not "wrong" - it does not purport to be of your mosque; it is part of a general infobox. If you want a picture of your mosque, pull your finger out - get a properly licensed image and upload it to the Commons - curiously there already is this Commons category waiting to receive it! Then use the image in the article.
Re-writing the text did not stop it being near vandalism - it was still totally inappropriate.
In fact the creator of the page is no longer active so you are better talking to more recent editors. I have already told you that you find out who they are by looking at the edit history. Why have you not done so? Please reply.
My recommendation is that if you propose serious changes to the article, discuss them on the talk page first and be prepared to wait for replies. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 12:40, 1 September 2015 (UTC)

Dear Mr. Haworth, I want to go through the deleted article BOARDONE. Would you like to send it to me or let me know the access to it. Tons of thanks. Poo Huak Poohuak334 (talk) 11:50, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Seeing you clean up mess after mess, endlessly, for what seems like forever, I would like to grant you the entirely made-up (but well-deserved) title of RC Patroller's Best Friend. I hope you'll keep on being awesome for the next ten years, and then some. Ashenai (talk) 09:39, 30 August 2015 (UTC)
  • I had never seen {{GENDER}} before. I already knew there are more than two genders but I never thought of Wikipedian as being one before! And why does it not count my gender as Wikipedian? Thanks for the barnstar. Sadly, unlike mucking out Augeas' cowshed there is no permanent fix - we just have to go on doing it. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 20:45, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

Page move redirects as G7[edit]

Not a big deal, but you just deleted Template:Imperial-meetup as I was about to decline it. WP:CSD#G7 does not apply to redirects created from page moves unless the mover was also the only substantial contributor to the moved page, which wasn't the case here.

Olney Amputee Dove Hunt[edit]

I have fixed the problem I had at my User:PatAlexander. I would like to retrieve from you the text I had used for the Olney Amputee Dove Hunt article. I have read all of the information provided to me today in this User talk:Patalexander#Several explanations. What I am not clear on, was the article deleted because my User pages was on speedy deletion or was there another reason it was deleted. I would appreciate any information you can provide me to may this an acceptable article. Thank you. -- PatAlexander 20:12, 31 August 2015 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Patalexander (talkcontribs)

  • The answer to the specific question you are asking is very simple: Olney Amputee Dove Hunt was deleted because it duplicated One-Arm Dove Hunt . Unfortunately for you and slightly amusingly your activities triggered the deletion of not one but two well established articles. It does not matter which of your activities did the triggering, both of the deletions were well-considered and valid irrespective of how they were brought to the nominators' attention. Both articles simply slipped through the net when originally created and also notability standards have become more rigorous.
My recommendations. If you are doing paid editing you must declare this explicitly on your user page and on the talk page of any article to which it applies. If you have a COI you must similarly declare this on the article talk page. International Child Amputee Network may possibly be notable - try submitting via AfC. But the shooting of one-armed doves is a very local event and is unlikely to be accepted. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 21:30, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

New Ramoans[edit]

Thank you for reading my inquiry. Concerning the page you deleted very recently, I can show credible source as to why this amendment is a credible entry into the Kayfabe page: Raymond Pettibon; [1] [2] an artist who is very well established, and is an integral part of this entry. Raymond Pettibon has publicly sided with the modern wrestling group, and along with professional wrestlers Paul London and Chris Sabin, have enacted a soon-to-be established wrestling group that gives credence to the page New Ramones. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Erickson.matthew (talkcontribs) 10:07, 1 September 2015 (UTC)

Also, why does the person who initially marked my page "not give a fuck"? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Erickson.matthew (talkcontribs)

  • Erickson.matthew, a two-sentence stub with shouting and absolutely no references stands no chance of survival. But please do not try to re-create - kindly have the decency to wait until someone with no COI thinks your group is notable and writes about it here.
As to your second comment: there is no need to copy&paste (in the wrong manner!) most of the guy's user page - create a link. If you were capable of recognising links, you would have noticed that the user box about which you are complaining: User:UBX/DGAF contains a link - follow that link! — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 13:48, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

Luv Ya page deletion.[edit]

Dear RHaworth. Could you please inform me why you found my page appropriate for deletion. I am new to Wikipedia, but I wish to make a material contribution, please tell me how I may present an article and make it stay on Wikipedia. I wish for a positive acquaintance in you, as I need advice in how to forward articles for review. Thankyou. CandidLibraryEditors. CandidLibraryEditors (talk) 19:38, 1 September 2015 (UTC)

Deletion of "Elgamal Foundation"[edit]

I had conjured a fairly, completed article yesterday for the article The Elgamal Foundation, however due to being a new user coupled with an unforunate deletion of my work, it appears to you as incomplete. What course of action would advise and just for future reference, what is the determiner of how "complete" an article is? Thanks--- please reply — Preceding unsigned comment added by Arentwelucky12 (talkcontribs) 14:25, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

  • I don't know where you did your conjuring but the only thing that reached Wikipedia was an infobox. Google has never heard of the foundation so I advise you to give up. But if you insist, you could try AfC. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 18:13, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

Fort York Guard[edit]

Old Fort York.jpg

Hi RHaworth – you just deleted a photograph entitled File:Fort York Guard 2015.jpeg on the basis of "F9: Media file copyright violation without credible claim of fair use or permission". However, I believe you are mistaken, as the image is licensed under Creative Commons, as you will see at this link. Clicking on "Some Rights Reserved" on the right beneath the image, you are taken to the Creative Commons licence [3] which allows for free sharing for non-commercial purposes with proper attribution (which was done on the original image upload). Let me know if somehow I am mistaken, but otherwise please reupload the file you deleted. RogerSheaffe (talk) 14:12, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

  • What's with the ridiculously long URL? Wikipedia does not allow the NC (non-commercial) clause. Please find an image with a {{cc-by-sa-4.0}} or less stringent licence and upload it to the Commons or use the image shown here. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 18:13, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

Elgamal Foundation[edit]

What is this? I expressed my disappointment in this note at the speedy delete nominator's page. Then when I hit return I see a redlink for The Elgamal Foundation, and find that it has been deleted. Did you read the Talk page? There were two objections to Speedy deletion. Do you completely dismiss my point that a brand new editor should be given a chance?

You are an experienced editor, I don't think you should be doing this. This is exactly the kind of thing recently being discussed at WikiProject Editor retention, as part of what is wrong here. Would you please simply restore the page, I ask of you. --doncram 12:56, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

  • You are also an experienced editor so you should know that it is totally unnecessary to clutter this page with a copy of the deletion log entry - I am perfectly capable of following a link - such as you could have provided to WP:RETENTION. Userfied. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 13:48, 2 September 2015 (UTC)
For the sake of completeness I did perform a thorough search for the subject using google and the guidestar database, and checked the domain that was included by the creator in an earlier version of the article. This took less than 4 minutes. It may appear like a rush to speedy a newcomers first attempt however there is no trace of this foundation at all. — Flat Out (talk) 23:24, 3 September 2015 (UTC)
  • Flat Out, possibly a case for an hand-written db notice, eg. {{db|No point in giving this editor more time; Google has never heard of this organisation}}. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 15:40, 4 September 2015 (UTC)

Dominique Monféry[edit]

Hi, in reply to the article you just deleted without notification, although links were added, proving the importance of this person, Oscar-nominated, award-winning director Dominique Monféry, former Disney animator, (which you reproached, and i took hours to put these links). i would like to know what you still reproach to have deleted it. IMDB, Allocine were added, which prove the importance of this director, Disney animator. in addition, as I wrote in the contestation of the deletion, there are articles in wikipedia on this person in french, german etc. fr:Dominique Monféry, de:Dominique Monféry

this person is also on Disney wiki [4]. all the films of this director are on eng wikipedia. here are examples of it: Eleanor's Secret, Franklin and the Turtle Lake Treasure and Destino.

when i have put the filmography of of this person, i have even included as reference, the imdb links to these films. and the title was directing to their respective wikipedia articles. i have also created an article on his last film Au Fil de l' Eau, an award-winning animated short, in qualifications for Oscars. but apparently it was deleted as well.

I have cited my own words, put the citation in italic with the proper reference [5] what do i need to put more so that you delete everything? i can't write an email asking confirmation of the right to use copyright material, since it is myself. the citation's copyright is on the imdb page of the film, with the same logline on the SND's website. [6] authors stated: Julia Pajot, myself, the producer and composer of the film, and Sydney Neter, the distributor of the film.

about the email confirmation, my email is on the imdb page, i am attached to the film's page. What is the use of having an imdb page with all our awards, credits, if, although we add these links on the wikipedia page to prove our importance, you delete the page? especially since there are millions of page in other languages, on the person you reproach of not being credibly important? I am asked to add links, which i add, and the page is deleted without notification as to what needs to be added, without any possibility of "improvement".

The only option is to link the Person's wikipedia article (example Dominique monkery's article in french) to the same article in another language, instead of creating an article about that same person, in english.

Thank you for your comprehension. best, jpajot7 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jpajot7 (talkcontribs) 19:37, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

  • Thank you for declaring your COI so clearly. Kindly have the decency to wait until someone who a) knows how to create links and b) has no COI thinks Dominique and his works are notable and writes about them here. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 15:09, 3 September 2015 (UTC)

Then have the decency of reading the article without being biased because I know this person.

Thank you very much. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jpajot7 (talkcontribs) 22:43, 3 September 2015 (UTC)

  • Please seek help from someone else. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 15:40, 4 September 2015 (UTC)

well, someone who takes the liberty to delete a page is the best one to give advice, since on has good reason to delete it... all the best. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jpajot7 (talkcontribs) 19:52, 4 September 2015 (UTC)

Jack The Radio[edit]

Hi RHaworth - First time creating a page. Yesterday I was working on Jack the Radio page, an NC Band. Apologies as I'm still learning here, if items were not cited properly. I see it fell under the: Article about a band, singer, musician, or musical ensemble, which does not credibly indicate the importance or significance of the subject). Happy to provide specific reasons, etc. I'd like to resubmit or if you could you provide me with the article again?

Some details on why I think it does indicate importance (I can include this in the article) The band formed in 2009 and since has released 2 studio albums, 7 inch vinyl, live album and live DVD and toured regionally on the East Coast. In 2012 the band successfully completed kickstarter campaign for the release of their sophomore album "Lowcountry". Winners of 2014 Last Band Standing. [7] [8] Their music has been placed on national and international TV and commercials. [9] [10]

Thanks for your help here as I'm learning. Holliscg (talk) 23:43, 3 September 2015 (UTC)Hollis (username: Holliscg)

Nilüfer Dumir[edit]

Hello Face-smile.svg, You deleted the page in title I created, without any discussion and obviously you did not read my comment, otherwise you would note say that this bio was obviously invented. I suggest that you googlize the name. I would be happy that you reload the page which will anyway be recreated by someone else. Do you want to bet ? Would you say that every single American photographer present in WP out of 2000+ is more important than Nilüfer ? Best regards, Jatayou (talk) 15:03, 4 September 2015 (UTC)

  • The obviously invented taunt was a bit cruel. The article was deleted for the simple reason that an article consisting simply of "Nilüfer Dumir is a Turkish photographer" stands zero chance of survival. If you draft a proper and properly referenced article in your sandbox and then move it to the correct title: Nilüfer Demir, it will stand a much better chance. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 15:58, 4 September 2015 (UTC)

Hi RHaworth, Just to make you aware when you closed Wikipedia:Miscellany for deletion/User:Rama Sethu - The easiest way to explain it is on the MFD page it was as if the Bottom closure part was missing so everything under that MFD was collapsed with the MFD so I've fixed it but just thought I'd make you aware, Thanks, –Davey2010Talk 18:22, 4 September 2015 (UTC)

I saw that you speedy deleted User:60tagegratis/sandbox but I wasn't sure why. From what I can tell, this discussion about G13 limits it to AFC creations only not all drafts.
