Emotional Speech Blocks Deletion Syndrome[edit]

[Title width guide. Delete above here if no further edits - already in archive. If further edits, move below here.]

Deletion of Page[edit]

You requested deletion of a page for our Senior Director. How do I indicate that the bio being put up is compatable with a CC lisense so as to not have the page deleted? Must this be listed on the source website? Is there a standard form or placement in the post? The copyright policy indicated that I coudl post anything under a CC0-4 license which is why I posted the content I did. Any gudiance to ensure this does not occur again would be helpful. — Preceding unsigned comment added by CISDLComms (talkcontribs) 13:30, 10 December 2018 (UTC)

TradingView article[edit]

Dear Roger W Haworth, we have spoken before about the deletion of the TradingView article on August 16th. You said it was deleted because of a tag your colleague Alpha3031 (talk · contribs) had applied. I have since spoken to him and he said I could ask you for a review of the decision to delete the article. I did not write it or contribute to it, but I did use it several times and I don’t think it was any different from an article such as this one. I would not mind to improve it though, could you provide me with a copy of the deleted article and with a good example of a description of a SAAS product? Regards, Erik0071 (talk) 15:29, 26 November 2018 (UTC)

  • Interesting use of "colleague". You think Alpha3031 and I are colleagues but you apparently are not one of our colleagues. Please explain. I am happy to let you see the text - read this. "Provide … a good example" - do your own research for goodness sake! — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 12:56, 27 November 2018 (UTC)

Dear Roger W Haworth, I added my email and allowed other users to email me. Would you be so kind as to email me the text of the original article? I am still curious why the article was deleted since -in my opinion- it was not any different from this one for example. Regards, Erik0071 (talk) 13:16, 5 December 2018 (UTC)

  • Text emailed. I agree: Dataminr would probably not survive an AfD discussion. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 15:55, 7 December 2018 (UTC)

Deletion request[edit]

Thanks for deleting Module talk:Module:Sandbox/Denis1245 and Module talk:Module:Sandbox/Denis. Would you be kind enough to delete the corresponding module pages, Module:Module:Sandbox/Denis1245 and Module:Module:Sandbox/Denis, please? The whole point of requesting deletion on the talk page is that csd templates aren't valid additions to module: pages. Thanks in advance. -- RexxS (talk) 23:50, 1 December 2018 (UTC)

  • Oops sorry, I ought to know that. Now dealt with. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 00:04, 2 December 2018 (UTC)

Thank you, and sorry to be a nuisance, but you've only deleted one of the two module pages created in error. This isn't part of a conspiracy to make me run for adminship myself, is it? Cheers --RexxS (talk) 00:19, 2 December 2018 (UTC)

Lyubena Fox[edit]

Hello Thank you for previewing my article named Lyubena Fox. Would it be possible to ask why it was deleted, is it because the person is not notable enough to have a wiki or because of the copyright material used? I wrote that article about myself, since I am an artist and want to make more information available about my art. As for the copyright I do own the rights to the text, and am willing to give permission for it to be used. Sorry for bothering and thank you for your time! Best regards, LyubenaFox (talk) 16:16, 1 December 2018 (UTC)

  • Why was it deleted? Please read this. I will say this in your favour: unlike most of the autobiographers who complain on this page, you have been up-front that it is an autobio. But my mantra still applies: kindly have the decency to wait until someone with no CoI thinks thou art notable and writes about thee here. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 00:24, 2 December 2018 (UTC)

Deletion of Draft:Danube hidden heritage[edit]

Dear RHaworth, last Friday you deleted the above mentioned page for copyright infringement. It happened due to our mistake, we uploaded the file without the copyright clearance notice within the document. The new source document can be found here. Please either reinstate the old page, so that I can alter the infringing link, which is no more active anyway and add the new, correct link to the accurate document. The document includes the line "The document is released under a Creative Commons CC-BY SA 3.0 license." on page 5, as suggested by the live-talk assistant of Wikipedia. If the page is entirely gone, I can re-upload it, but I would rather have your okay first. I would very much appreciate your assistance in this matter and thank you in advance for your time. — Sgracanin (talk) 17:56, 3 December 2018 (UTC)

Contesting deletion of Draft: Sanjay Jha[edit]

Hello, I recently created a page Draft:Sanjay Jha India that you advised speedy deletion of. The reason mentioned was that it was copyright infringement of content from Please note that the copyrights of that page are with me. I have sent an email to granting the necessary permissions in the required format. I request you to undo the deletion so that I can add {OTRS pending} on it and thereafter continue towards publishing it successfully. Do let me know if you require any more details about the same. — Reshma Dewda (talk) 10:01, 4 December 2018 (UTC)

Direct Commission Officers (DCOs)[edit]

Thanks for deleting the redirect Direct Commission Officers (DCOs). I can't find any evidence of it now, but someone had removed my CSD tag on its talk page as not qualifying for CSD, so I listed it at RfD. Do I just revert that edit now or...? —[AlanM1(talk)]— 14:30, 4 December 2018 (UTC)

FYI, I restored the redirect. GB fan declined the CSD with "Not even close to G6ish. redirects from moves are not speedy deleteable unless the move just happened and it is an implausible redirect" and I absolutely agree. I'm not sure why it was subsequently deleted, but now that it's at RfD, it would be best to decide what happens to the redirect there. -- Tavix (talk) 14:49, 4 December 2018 (UTC)


Dear, RHaworth, The article you deleted of mine was for my college Com 300 class and is my final assignment for the class. It was only partially completed at the time, and was also in my sandbox. I please ask you to return the article because it is worth a large part of my grind, and I had put in a significant amount of time working on the article article — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jsedeno97 (talkcontribs) 18:25, 4 December 2018 (UTC)

Question about how to fix deleted article[edit]

Hello, I recently wrote a page that was speedily deleted. There were two reasons cited for the deletion, but I believe that with improvements the article would have no issues, and so I am hoping that you could point me in the right direction in order for me to rewrite it. One of the reasons cited for deletion was G11, which is titled as "Unambiguous promotion." This was not my intention, as I only wanted to write about this person and detail the companies he has been with and some of the things he has done there (on a separate note, I realize that I did a poor job of explaining his significance, so I will fix that). How could I change what I have already written in a way that does not come off as promotional? Thank you for any help you can provide! — Preceding unsigned comment added by XFaro (talkcontribs) 23:28, 4 December 2018 (UTC)

  • It may seem trivial but the upper case b on businessman and the fact that you do not provide a wikilink scream to me: "newbie with CoI". But feel free to try again via AfC. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 15:55, 7 December 2018 (UTC)

Your deletion of my page "Kai Kara-France"[edit]

You deleted my page Kai Kara-France (whose contents I am now keeping in my sandbox at User:Rsfinlayson/sandbox), but apparently completely ignored the page's Talk page, where I contested its deletion. The page (reflecting changes to the fighter's record) had changed significantly since the original discussion at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Kai Kara France - almost 2 years ago. I'm disappointed and annoyed that you chose to automatically delete this page without taking the time to comment on my reasons for contesting its deletion. — Ross Finlayson (talk) 12:07, 5 December 2018 (UTC)

  • Bracket a page title with [[]] not "". Two years is possibly long enough for him to become notable. I suggest that if you try again, do so via AfC. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 15:55, 7 December 2018 (UTC)

speedy deletion of Pattern Energy[edit]

Hi I did not get the chance to respond to the comment by @Cabayi: below before the page was deleted. Ronald, the requirements for articles about businesses have been rewritten recently. You need to show that the company passes the threshold of WP:NCORP. Two references to their own website and one to a trade directory do not even start to do that. Hope that helps, Cabayi (talk) 12:47, 29 November 2018 (UTC)

  • @Cabayi: It is Wikipedia:LISTED. I was going to put in some more info on the company and its projects next time I had a chance, can you send me the last version so I can build on it when I get back from holiday, since there are a number of references to the company and its projects. Thanks RonaldDuncan (talk) 13:11, 5 December 2018 (UTC)
  • @RHaworth: Can you either put the page back or send me the last edit to build on. Thanks.RonaldDuncan (talk) 13:16, 5 December 2018 (UTC)

RAAF officer takes command[edit]

Hi, you speedily deleted File:RAAF officer takes command of United Nations Command (Rear) at a ceremony in Yokota, Japan.png. Did you see my contest of that deletion? The image was on an official U.S. government Flickr account. These usually contain incorrect license terms and, from my experience, we routinely ignore them when they do, as when the White House briefly stamped all its photos "All Rights Reserved". In any case, in my contest of the deletion I included a link to the original file at a .mil account which was discoverable via a reverse image search. If you can't undelete this file, could you let me know the URL I posted (I didn't save it)? That way I can re-upload the image. Thanks. Chetsford (talk) 17:51, 5 December 2018 (UTC)

Mihri Pektaş[edit]

It seems you have moved Mihri Pektaş to draft on 30 Jan., 2017 (which was soon deleted) I am planning to create a redirect. Can you please give your rationale ? Cheers. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 11:05, 6 December 2018 (UTC)

  • An editor with 60,000 edits to his credit ought to: provide a link to the page under discussion and likewise state explicitly from where to where the proposed redirect should point. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 15:55, 7 December 2018 (UTC)

Please could you undelete Module:RexxS. It's in use in quite a few places and contains my working code for several jobs. The request for CSD was for Module:Rexxs/doc that a student accidentally created. -- RexxS (talk) 23:53, 6 December 2018 (UTC)

I'm afraid that you're mistaken again. I didn't apply the speedy tag. Martin Urbanec did. --RexxS (talk) 16:04, 7 December 2018 (UTC)

William Elvin Jackson[edit]

Hi, Roger. I'm Zke18. You reviewed (so quickly! thanks!!) and then deleted the page I drafted on William Elvin Jackson. I am on board to make the changes you requested, it just took me longer to get back to the editing than I had anticipated. Will you please restore the page so I can complete the draft to address your concern? Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:51, 7 December 2018 (UTC)

  • I am willing to email the text but how can I do so without a link to the page and how can I email to an IP address? — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 22:02, 9 December 2018 (UTC)

I have the text, but i was hoping a "restore" of the actual page I had created would salvage with it the citations I input. or do I just need to create a new page? The page said I needed to contact you before I create a new page. Sorry, I'm super new to this, so still learning how things are done. Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:40, 11 December 2018 (UTC)

Deletion of Draft:Smart Token[edit]

You recently deleted my draft on the subject of smart tokens. The article was written from a neutral and factual perspective. It went to lengths to discuss the concept of a "smart token" without giving attention to any particular smart token. The only thing I could be said to have directly "promoted" are mathematical formulas used in the bancor implementation. I found that including formulas was necessary for the reader's understanding of the topic. I request that you undelete it so that the article can be assessed for publishing. — Maxlysle (talk) 02:20, 8 December 2018 (UTC)

  • An editor has asked for a deletion review of Draft:Smart Token. 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. IagoQnsi (talk) 03:25, 8 December 2018 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Draft:Pam Alexander[edit]

Hi, I had pasted in the content of an article to use as a temporary aide-memoire whilst I wrote the article. I thought this would be OK in draft space, but I was wrong - my bad. I had in fact deleted the copyright content just seconds before you deleted the article. Would you be so kind as to reinstate the version without the copyright content? Many thanks. Rhanbury (talk) 14:06, 11 December 2018 (UTC)

Thank you for the undeletion! I'll make sure I don't do that again. Can you / should you undelete the talk page as well, or shall I recreate that? Rhanbury (talk) 16:44, 11 December 2018 (UTC)

Deletion of User:Ruijiao/sandbox[edit]

Hi. You speedy'd User:Ruijiao/sandbox as a G11, but there's nothing there but a draft of content on functional diversity (not great content, but nothing unsalvageable) by one student editor, and some commentary on the draft by another. Beyond the abuse filter tagging it as "Possible self promotion in userspace", there was nothing on the page that was outside the UP guidelines - it's simply people working collaboratively to improve the encyclopaedia. Certainly nothing remotely promotional. Guettarda/Ian (Wiki Ed) (talk) 15:25, 11 December 2018 (UTC)

RE: Kirk Deviere article[edit]

I would like to ask that deletion of the recently submitted Wikipedia page be overturned.

Deletion of KSrelief page[edit]

I have attached the link of the page that you have deleted. I am a beginner and it was my first time to create a page. It seems I missed some points that led you delete my article. I will try to learn on how to create a wiki page and then create something more accurate.

Deletion of Ilya Friedberg pianist page[edit]


I was wondering how did g12 was used in that deletion reasoning? The Indiana University page is a publicly available information and the link that was pointing to Ilya Friedberg biography as a summer faculty is also a public information.

I was trying to read the definition of the g12 by Wiki, and couldn't find the reasoning.

please undo the deletion of that page.

Thank you! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:40, 12 December 2018 (UTC)

Contested deletion[edit]


I am trying to publish a new Wikipedia page for my company, Arecont Vision Costar, and the program admin has blocked me from creating it after it was deleted twice, listing it as spam. Please note that this is my first time doing this exercise, so I am not familiar with this process. I did my best to follow the rules of making the article less promotional and more agnostic/generic to make it more encyclopedic, but it was still rejected. I can send a screencap of the latest iteration showing multiple references to 3rd party articles as well as links to other Wiki pages.

Draft: the feath3r theory[edit]

Hello RHaworth,

I am writing to you because you had deleted my draft of a wikipedia page for the feath3r theory. This was the message I received:

"A page with this title has previously been moved or deleted.

If you are creating a new page with different content, please continue. If you are recreating a page similar to the previously deleted page, or are unsure, please first contact the user(s) who performed the action(s) listed below.

18:25, 30 November 2018 RHaworth (talk | contribs) deleted page User:Sgrover17/sandbox/the feath3r theory (G12: Unambiguous copyright infringement of (thank)"

I understand G12 as the issue, which is frustrating because the unambiguous copyright infringement was text from our company's website.

Nevertheless, I am willing to reword the text where necessary to differ from our company's website. I am wondering if you regrant me access to the drafted material so I can make the edits, and if its possible for you to highlight or let me know somehow, which text is being flagged as copyright material?

Please advise, as I am also new to Wikipedia and find all of this quite complicated! Best, Stephanie Sgrover17 (talk) 21:15, 12 December 2018 (UTC)
