AfD nomination of Yard-O-Led

Ambox warning pn.svg

I have nominated Yard-O-Led, an article you created, for deletion. I do not feel that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Yard-O-Led. Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time. Do you want to opt out of receiving this notice? Deiz talk 07:10, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

Hi Racklever, as you'll note on the AfD page, the page is a copyright violation and will therefore be deleted again. Please don't add / re-add references to this company in any more articles. Thanks, Deiz talk 09:44, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

Reviewer

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

For the guideline on reviewing, see Wikipedia:Reviewing. Being granted reviewer rights doesn't change how you can edit articles even with pending changes. The general help page on pending changes can be found here, and the general policy for the trial can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. -FASTILY (TALK) 16:24, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

Templates

You took interest in my short, table articles for Masters Decathlon World Record holders. They are taking a lot of heat because either I don't understand how to make a table within a table conform to WP standards, or these other editors are so frantic to delete articles that they don't look at how I am using these. The one sensible suggestion was to convert them to a template like Template:William Murray M55 World Record Score (though I think that changes the color background and unnecessarily draws attention to them). Obviously I don't know how this works or how the final edit will react through WP formatting. Other than the bold column identifiers, I am pretty close to the results I wish to present this data.

I asked the other editor for a how to on this, I got no reply. I'm guessing you are an administrator or at least understand the higher levels of editing. Please read one of these talk pages. See how I'm using this to align columns of specific data that needs to fit into a huge table. Look for the {{: symbols in Masters Athletics World Records to see how these pages are used to do that. If converting the pages to another form will stop the complaints and conform to policy, please go ahead and make the conversions to whatever the edit space needs to be.

Gregor Brandmüller

You recently edited Gregor Brandmüller. I have no problem with your edits, but perhap you can look into why it added extra (unnecessary and visually less pleasing) whitespace between the references text, and the stub text. There was before your edit one empty line, and now there appear to be two. If possible, I would prefer this to be one line only. Perhaps you can check whether this happened with this edit only (in which case, never mind), or whether this regulary happens with your current AWB settings. Fram (talk) 11:32, 18 October 2010 (UTC)

Hi there! Another user suspects that the whole Alexander Chain article might be a hoax, and so far I'm leaning to agree.

This is not cleanup. The edit was about maintenance, not "content and style". It was a warranted edit, but it is not cleanup. Geschichte (talk) 09:43, 21 October 2010 (UTC)

Rampant Editing

I understand you are trying to help, but you need to look at articles before you just edit them. If you had actually looked at it you would see that Lands of Hope is still in the process of being edited and created. That is why it's still an orphan. It was also not very pretty due to that too. I'd suggest letting articles sit and be a few days unedited before doing any automated cleanup. Enlormn (talk) 21:02, 22 October 2010 (UTC)

I am checking a large number of new articles using a tool called AutoWikiBrowser. Please remember that you do not own the article and that Wikipedia is a collaborative effort. Racklever (talk) 21:13, 22 October 2010 (UTC)

Please slow down

When using AWB you are still expected to add human intelligence to the programme's powers. You labelled Gawley as a stub, and uncategorised, and an orphan. In fact it is obvious, if you look at it, that it is a disambiguation page. The fact that it starts off "Gawley may refer to" is a good clue. The only appropriate tag to add was {{dab}}. Please be more careful. Thanks. PamD (talk) 22:01, 8 November 2010 (UTC)

On your clean-up patrol..

... do you check the edit histories? Nero (Musicians) was tagged by you, the 4th edit in its history. The first edit was by a new user, the second edit was by User:CorenSerchBot tagging it as a WP:COPYVIO of http://lepoissonrouge.com/events/artist/1459, and the third edit, by the original author, simply removed the tag. You clearly do good work, but can I ask (which is perhaps inappropriate in a voluntary project where people do as they like, etc...) that you at least look through the history of new articles to check CSB hasn't tagged them, and pos do a bit of google checking to ensure that new articles aren't copied from elsewhere.

I noticed you marked an article as a stub using the {{stub}} template. Did you know that there are thousands of stub types that you can use to clarify what type of stub the article is?

Gorgi Popstefanov Article

Hi,

I noticed you renamed the article "Gorgi Popstefanov" to "Gorgi Pop Stefanov." I created this article because I am familiar with this person. His last name is actually one word "Popstefanov." If you Google search his name, every search result will show it as one word. That particular page you sourced mispelled it. Can you please change the name back to its originial title? I tried to change it back myself but there doesn't seem to be a move tab anymore. Thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Adrlite (talkcontribs) 17:06, 10 June 2011 (UTC)

On second thought, it seems that while his name in English is spelled "Gorgi Popstefanov," his name in Macedonian media is spelled "Gorgy Pop Stefanov." Perhaps you can use the English version for the article title, but make reference to the other spelling. For example, "also spelled Gorgy Pop Stefanov..."Adrlite (talk) 17:18, 10 June 2011 (UTC)

Hi, Racklever. I partially reverted your edit in the wiki about MILCs, because sensor size IS relevant. In fact the article begins by stating that MILCs "typically" have a large sensor ...!!

Proposed deletion of Jon Miquel Toral Harper

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Jon Miquel Toral Harper has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

non notable player = not yet played professionally for first team / does not satisfy GNG

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Speedy deletion nomination of Jon Miquel Toral Harper

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Jon Miquel Toral Harper, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G4 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a repost of material that was previously deleted following a deletion debate, such as at articles for deletion. Under the specified criteria, where an article has substantially identical content to that of an article deleted after debate, and any changes in the content do not address the reasons for which the material was previously deleted, it may be deleted at any time.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Argyle 4 Lifetalk 17:57, 29 October 2011 (UTC)

Here's a little bit of magic which can save you an awful lot of time and effort!

You might want to consider using this tool - (tools:~dispenser/cgi-bin/webreflinks.py) - it makes your life a whole heap easier, by filling in complete citation templates for your links. All you do is install the script on Special:MyPage/common.js, or or Special:MyPage/vector.js, then paste the bare url (without [...] brackets) between your <ref></ref> tabs, and you'll find a clickable link called Reflinks in your toolbox section of the page (probably in the left hand column). Then click that tool. It does all the rest of the work (provided that you remember to save the page! It doesn't work for everything (particularly often not for pdf documents), but for pretty much anything ending in "htm" or "html" (and with a title) it will do really, really well all by itself. For those it can;t do by itself, it gives you a pull-down (or up) menu of templates to choose from, which you can then fill in manually. Often the problem is "No title found" - sometimes the title is obvious (especially if it's a pdf), bit, if not, just open the page yourself and choose soemthing appropriate if there's not already a clear title there.

Gratuitous article tagging

Please read WP:OVERLINK, and please identify one single missing link in this article if you wish to tag it as needing wikilinks.[1] SandyGeorgia (Talk) 00:57, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

The important tag added was "uncategorised". [2] The "wikify" tag was just a side effect of using AutoWikiBrowser. Racklever (talk) 08:28, 7 November 2011 (UTC)
The gratuitous "Wikify" tag defaced the article-- you shouldn't be doing that, FYI. SandyGeorgia (Talk) 14:53, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

wikify Booster pump

Hi Racklever. Could you be a bit more specific about what you have in mind for wikification of Booster pump? Peter (Southwood) (talk): 19:29, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

It has some links to other articles now so I have removed the tag. Racklever (talk) 19:49, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

Alfred Higgs

Hi Racklever, I notice that you've edited the Alfred Higgs article, and added a '1931 deaths' category, is this correct? Best Regards. DynamoDegsy (talk) 20:23, 18 November 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads-up, I have reverted my edit. Racklever (talk) 20:27, 18 November 2011 (UTC)

Hello, Have you noticed the "under construction" banner on the top of the article and the temporary link to another article.You should. And what have you cleaned up in a template? There are no categories,because the article is not ready,so it is no use for the readers to access it.Drjmarkov (talk) 13:00, 23 November 2011 (UTC)

If you don't want other people to edit an article before it is complete you can create it in your Sandbox. Racklever (talk) 13:11, 23 November 2011 (UTC)
I have nothing against editing, if it is an edit.I am against people, who pretend doing something useful, like adding uncategorized banner for example to an article, that is obviously in construction.If somebody adds something useful I would be pleased of course, that is why it is not in my sandbox and for just a coincidence I know about it.Drjmarkov (talk) 14:19, 23 November 2011 (UTC)

Kan Singh Parihar

I guess because I'm just an IP address, the immediate answer is to revert, right? If you had paid more attention, you would have noticed that the individual I reverted was introducing material into the article that was not WP:MOS compliant and, in doing so, was simply railroading over constructive changes. Here is Parihar's obituary, found at Deaths in October 2011. 68.60.176.218 (talk) 01:18, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

I reverted because you did not add a reference. It is standard practice to add one if you change an article to say someone is dead.Racklever (talk) 09:19, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

Erroneous AWB edits

Please fix your AWB settings. On Umar Cheema and Troy Blacklaws, you added an inapplicable external link, incorrect Persondata, an incorrect DEFAULTSORT, and incorrect categories. Also, in many edits such as one to Wena Poon, you use an incorrect edit summary. MANdARAX  XAЯAbИAM 21:42, 3 December 2011 (UTC)

Many thanks for helping out with the citation in the John Gower (Wisconsin politician) article. It gets frustrating when you miss a letter, number, space, etc. I find it easier just to write the citation out instead of linking to the internet. Thank you-RFD (talk) 21:16, 11 December 2011 (UTC)

why not add a category instead of defacing the article with a huge textbox?

South Indian Film Industry

Please check this forwarded message at User talk:MThekkumthala

  • 1. POV, Each indian film industry is individual in its own terms and have individual articles in wikipedia.
  • 2. There is no single south indian film industry, Hindi film is also a part of revenue generation.
  • 3. The gross revenues of each Indian film industry varies each year, Hindi Film Revenue in 2011 is higher.
  • 4. There is no notability for this article, Instead it creates confusion and it not feasible to shift all the references and information from Cinema of India article.
  • 5. Please obey the three revert rule.
  • 6. The information in south indian film industry article is already provided in cinema of india article, please check it.

Intrawikis

Hi Racklever, I'm afraid when you find an intrawiki error it doesn't work just fixing things at our end, those oh so helpful bots will rebuild the links unless they've all gone. If you come across another one and don't fancy editing the Arabic, Tamil or even more exotic sister projects feel free to drop me a note, I now have edits in more languages than we have the death anomaly project running in, including several languages where I don't know enough words to order a beer. Also I have got a userpage that promotes the death anomalies project and I slap it up on every wikipedia where I've fixed a death anomaly. ϢereSpielChequers 19:47, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

I'd be happy if you'd contribute more to the Lego Ninjago: The Series article. Your original help was great, thanks. I posted some suggestions on the discussion page as well.

If you want you can watch more episodes of the series on youtube. I believe a user named XmasToys has several uploaded.

orphan tags

You put (correctly:) orphan tags on the GBFTE page, am I allowed to remove these tags from the page myself - as it now has 4 linking articles? or does an an administrator have to verify this? Alonella (talk) 21:58, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

You are allowed to remove the tags yourself. -- Racklever (talk) 06:46, 12 January 2012 (UTC)

Persondata

I've noticed you adding alot of persondata to articles. It's nice to know somebody is stupid smart enough to do it just like me. Could you start adding info to the "Short description" field. There is a tracking category for it. I don't know, adding it seems like a good idea, but if it is actually used is a different story. Bgwhite (talk) 06:24, 2 February 2012 (UTC)

Ken_Charlton_(rugby_league)

Hi Racklever, i'm very sorry, but i don't know how to use wiki to edit pages, but i found you are the one who has helped add to the article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ken_Charlton_(rugby_league). I am his grandson, i'm sure that counts for naught given the anonymity of the internet. But I was hoping you update it or help me update it based of these two sites http://www.rugbyleagueproject.org/players/ken-charlton/summary.html and http://www.itsanhonour.gov.au/honours/honour_roll/search.cfm?aus_award_id=978930&search_type=simple&showInd=true and also the additional information in the cited source http://thebulldogs.com.au/sportal.php?page=player&id=124 . The first mentioned has DOB, place of birth etc. and the Second site is for a medal of recognition he received for contribution to sports.

Speedy deletion nomination of Leonard Rosoman

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Leonard Rosoman requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Osarius Talk 10:17, 4 March 2012 (UTC)

Adding categories

Hi. Could you please be more careful when adding BLP categories to individuals? I've had to clean up several mistakes now where people with sourced deaths in their article (such as Ben Ellis (footballer)) were placed in Category:Possibly living people and others (such as Gordon Thomas (cyclist), which was brought up above by an IP, weird) who had references to being alive were taken out of Category:Living people. Please remember that, even when tool-assisted, you are still responsible for your edits. Thank you. Canadian Paul 16:43, 11 March 2012 (UTC)

The rule is that a reliable source is required before listing someone as dead. Om articles such as Ben Ellis (footballer) were there is no reliable source either Category:Possibly living people or Category:Living people should be used. - Racklever (talk) 16:55, 11 March 2012 (UTC)
There was a reliable source in that article noting his death and you still added him to Category:Possibly living people. My point is that you need to pay attention to the article itself before you add the category. Canadian Paul 17:01, 11 March 2012 (UTC)
I have a similar question with respect to Natalee Holloway, this diff. Natalee Holloway has been declared dead; the IP whom you effectively reverted seems to have been quite right in removing the category. Perhaps also it would be wise to be a bit more clear when edit summaries are used. And this is a FA, her death is sourced in the article.--Wehwalt (talk) 10:51, 16 March 2012 (UTC)

sort keys

FYI... In Chinese articles like Feng Zhuoyi, DEFAULTSORT=Feng, Zhuoyi
Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese names have their surname first. If you are unsure about a name, consult WP:NAMESORT for some help or ask me on my talk page.

Also, please add info in the "short description" field. Somebody (ie me or waacats) has to come right behind you and add it. Also, if the talk page is missing, could you add WikiProject Biography to biography articles... somebody has to come right behind you again. I like to fill out as much information that I can so people don't have to revisit the article again and again. Bgwhite (talk) 23:22, 1 April 2012 (UTC)

Forgot.... Music bands are considered a BLP. So, the "BLP unreferenced" tag applies. On the talk page, "living=yes" if any band member is still alive. Bgwhite (talk) 06:08, 2 April 2012 (UTC)
I have just checked WP:BLP and it does not say this. Racklever (talk) 09:03, 2 April 2012 (UTC)
Correct. Articles on Music bands are not themselves BLPs, though they often containing some biographical information on living people. The BLPunsourced and RefimproveBLP templates are only for articles that are Biographies of Living People. However the BLP policy applies to any biographical information about identifiable living people anywhere on wiki. ϢereSpielChequers 09:14, 2 April 2012 (UTC)
Per WP:BLPGROUP, groups can be counted as living biographies and music bands have been deemed to fall under this provision. Also, if a musician is not notable outside a band, they are only to be mentioned on the band's article... Therefore a person's biography may only be on the band's article.
I see you were trying to "beat me" at potential biographies of dead people. I normally always do this category irregardless if you have done it or not because of so many things that need to be changed. BLP=yes should be removed from WikiProjectBannerShell. Sometimes the person is not actually dead, so I revert your "living=no" to "living=yes". Death date is applied to the article, but not the infobox or persondata. work-group or class hasn't been applied on the talk page. As I stated above, I like to fill out as much information that I can so people don't have to revisit the article again and again. I keep learning new little things to do all the time (aka, my tiny brain actually remembers something). You really need to start using WP:AWB, makes things go alot faster... I have two windows open, one for the article and another for the talk page. Bgwhite (talk) 07:36, 5 April 2012 (UTC)
