Speedy deletion declined: User:Gabban232/sandbox[edit]

Hello Rankersbo. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of User:Gabban232/sandbox, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: I don't think blanking a user sandbox should be taken as a request for deletion - I blank mine frequently before re-using it. Thank you. JohnCD (talk) 17:49, 6 March 2015 (UTC)

19:10:21, 7 March 2015 review of submission by Phatboy12345[edit]


Hi -- thanks for the information and help in understanding why my submission was denied. It was my first Wiki submission, so I'm trying to learn more. Can you please help compare and contrast my submission to the current "For Dummies" Wiki page? Here's the link to the "For Dummies" Wiki page...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/For_Dummies

That compare-and-contrast information will help me understand how I can edit my submission to be published like the "For Dummies" is currently published.

Thanks again!

Phatboy12345 (talk) 19:10, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

OK Phatboy12345, I can't do too much.
  • Your page is 90% the blurb of the books, with only a short sentence setting context, the For dummies article discusses the context of those books, their impact.
  • The books listed in the for dummies article are done briefly in 7 or 8 bullet points.
  • Thirdly the For Dummies article has multiple independent sources.

A barnstar for you![edit]

Dear all,

I am the author of the said report, so I don't see how it can be a problem to reuse the content.

Best regards, Nicolas

Hi there, if you look at it from my perspective, I have no way of knowing that you are that author. I mean you haven't signed in today it was hard enough for me to work out who you are as a wikipedia user let alone in real life.
You can't simply publish work created for use elsewhere on wikipedia, you must be prepared to formally let go of control and rights to the work, and sometimes prove you are the original creator. Rankersbo (talk) 08:03, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

Hello I am Publicist for an artist and I am looking to get him listed on Wikipedia. He is a notable artist. However I do not see the different sections available when creating article for him. Such as,music career or early life to name a few. I see these and more under other artists Wikipedia pages. Please advise. Also to place citations I included external links, is this not okay?

Hi, this article keeps getting turned down and I don't understand why. I have loads of outside referrals, I have made it as encyclopedic as possible. Rose Marie and Elephants for Peace have done so much more since this article was created, and still it's turned down, and I don't know why...

Draft:Kossila Oxbow[edit]

Hi, I saw that you were the editor who submitted this draft at AfC, though not the original creator. I fixed the sources — they're now both cited inline and documented properly — though not in time for the AfC review. I suspect it still will not pass due to the BLP issue; if you're not able or willing to find sources for those parts of the article, it might be best to delete the contentious sentences so that the rest of the article can pass muster. Since you were the user who last submitted the article, I wanted to give you a heads-up & opportunity to decide which option you wanted to take, if you want to edit or resubmit the article yourself at all. —GrammarFascist (talk) 19:38, 12 September 2015 (UTC)

edit conflict.[edit]

Hi Rankersbo, was cleaning up the tone of Draft:David Adrian Smith when you were reviewing it.  :-)     I found the newspaper source that the original author of the draft was trying to insert, but could not find the BBC source, though it does seem to exist, Smith has a clip of the BBC episode on his personal youtube site. Not sure he passes WP:42, but can you revise your comment to suggest his next steps, please? p.s. Actually, *I* already revised your comment, slightly, you had typed WP:REFBEFIN rather than WP:REFBEGIN which I figured the original author of the draft might find confusing.  ;-)     75.108.94.227 (talk) 20:06, 22 September 2015 (UTC)

Confusion regarding a post from you[edit]

Hi Rankersbo,

    I received a message that you'd left a message on my talk page, but I can't figure it out.  It looks like you added: "Category:AfC submissions declined as not written in a neutral point of view|}}  Please check the submission for any additional comments left by the reviewer.", right in the middle of someone else's comment. Also, the discussion to which your comment was added, was for an article which was accepted months ago. (my only article so far).
   anyway, please let me know what I can do to help.

thanks rob RobSVA (talk) 00:21, 30 September 2015 (UTC)

Hi RobSVA, there was a fault with the process that left those messages because it left a category on your talk page which should only have been put on the draft. I was removing that category, so your talk page doesn't show when people are looking through the list of declined articles. Rankersbo (talk) 06:18, 30 September 2015 (UTC)
RobSVA, I realise that the confusion is that you have the diff back to front, I removed that category, I didn't add it! Rankersbo (talk) 19:13, 10 October 2015 (UTC)

Draft:Combating Transnational Organized Crime[edit]

Hi. I received a message saying you left me a message on my talk page but can find no record of it. Can you tell me if you did leave a message regarding my AfC Draft:Combating Transnational Organized Crime? Thanks. Briansmith451 (talk) 14:21, 8 October 2015 (UTC)

No, I left no message, I am performing maintenance only at the mo. Rankersbo (talk) 14:41, 8 October 2015 (UTC)

AFC script cleanup[edit]

Just so you know, you can more easily fix the cleanup if you simply have AWB search for various categories and replace them with blanks. The edits look like this and the output is the same. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 00:25, 9 October 2015 (UTC)

I did do that for the simple cases, but I don't think that's the best approach to doing those more complex messages. But equally I don't seem to be able to set AWB to do more than one cat at once- meaning that pages with multiple declines need multiple edits. I've been using multiple find and replace cases for those. Rankersbo (talk) 06:51, 9 October 2015 (UTC)

Copyright investigation[edit]

Got an alert to these four or five copyright investigations; Kent Warner Smith, Arthur Samish, Montgomery Block, Father Fitzgerald, Justin Hertman. Yes, I cut and pasted. Can I just rewrite the material? I did some of those a long time ago, and most of my work has stood up. Maybe you should check my other entries. User:Hank chapot 10/9/15

Have a look at WP:COPYPASTE. If you totally write in your own words it should be fine, but if you just paraphrase the obituaries it will still be seen as a copyright violation. Rankersbo (talk) 08:58, 10 October 2015 (UTC)

Removing an AFC category[edit]

Dear Rankersbo,

Few days ago I received a message from you "Remove an AFC category"... Can you please explain, so I could fix my mischief best?
Thank you in advance,
Silverray123 (talk) 12:54, 18 October 2015 (UTC)

Silverray123, don't worry: you did nothing, and so don't need to do anything to fix it! A few months back there was a bug in the tools AfC tool that reviewers use to leave messages for people. I was removing a category that had been left by accident on your talk page when a submission was declined. Rankersbo (talk) 14:12, 18 October 2015 (UTC)

22:55:21, 4 November 2015 review of submission by Leokingss[edit]




Hello,


My submission has once again been declined by due to incorrect language used, but it was edited by one of Wikipedia's editor, as I asked someone on the chat forum to have a look ad edit it and they did it. I don't know David Smith personally and i am simply try to credit one of the last remaining old school sign artist that still use the old victoria way of doing things, but it seems to be so hard to get someone listed on here, specially someone that has worked with some big names and brands out there.

If it was edited to the correct language needed for Wikipedia by one of your editors, so, why it has been rejected?

Thank you Leo

Looking at the history it seems it was edited for tone after I declined it, not before. Rankersbo (talk) 14:54, 5 November 2015 (UTC)

Your removal of the causa limeña article[edit]

Hello Rankersbo,

My reply to your take down of my entry on causa limeña:

I'm sure the editor who took down my article was well intentioned, but I believe misguided. While nothing I write for Wikipedia is perfect, I do a reasonably competent job. I happen to be a recognized specialist on Peruvian history and culture, with a PhD among my accomplishments and 45 years of classroom teaching at Cal State LA.

Lima has become a food tourism destination, and Peruvian restaurants have proliferated in the United States and across Europe. My cardiologist recently went to Peru only to eat, not to sight see.

Because Peruvian food is a cultural mix of Spanish, Andean, African and Chinese influences, there are few dishes that actually contain "Lima" in their name. This is one.

I not only consulted some Peruvian cookbooks to craft the article, I completed it while watching a native Peruvian cook go through all the steps for its creation.

I challenge the Wikipedia police to find a better encyclopaedia article on causa limeña in any published source.

Thank you for your reconsideration of this matter.
