Michael Manning, Low Art 2009

Ummm... Hiya,

Well, I wanted to say that I think my article was well cited, well put together, referenced, and very valid. The speed of your deletion indicates that you hadn't checked to see, - so, if you could, please reinstate the article, or submit to me a few good reasons, things I could improve, to help make the article more valid.

The article is located at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Manning_(musician)

Izzyiscariot (talk) 11:53, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

  • The article was uncited, incoherent in places, had no citations and was entirely invalid. You may wish to start again from scratch, under this or your original account. You quickly blanked the userfied version of the article, so I have deleted it again. ➲ redvers see my arsenal 20:11, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

Bot Error

Hi

I'm not so good at Wikipedia stuff, sorry if I messed things up.

Here's the thing. There's this illustrator, I saw an advertisement made by her in the metro and I instantly became a fan. She's called "Take" (pronounced "tah-keh"), so I had a hell of a time googling for her. I eventually found her wikipedia page, japanese only, not much more than a draft. I check it every once in a while to see if there's anything new. And every single time, someone added the links to half a dozen pages of the cinema concept "take". So every single time, I remove them. I'm not sure what the situation is, but it seems at least some were added by something that might be a bot that might be controlled by you. Or something.

Anyway, obviously that person is not synonym to a cinema concept, so I'd be happier if those links weren't created. Maybe you'll have more ideas than me on how to achieve that.

Thanks

Unblock Request

User:HappyVR (or at least an IP claiming that account) has posted an unblock request both on their user page and at the help desk. Since you blocked the account (3 years ago), I'd thought I'd drop you a line so you could review it. Best, TNXMan 05:30, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

Hello, I'd like to recover my old account, unfortunately I've forgotten my password.
If I can be unblocked I'd like to re-use the old user name, even if this means starting anew.
I have to admit I have editted anomynously on the reference desk pages, and created articles such as Beagle Board. Later I signed in as User talk:Carrolljon - though an argument (my fault) led another user to start harrasing me (as I perceived it) - as a result, to avoid the hassle I simply changed to a new name User talk:FengRail - and continued editing.
I wasn't conciously attempting to evaid a block - as a long period had expired before I started editing I assumed that the block had expired - I didn't realise/forgot the block was indefinate.
Please take this into account.77.86.67.245 (talk) 15:40, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

Kenny Powers

You protected creating new pages under this title due to "repeated recreation" in November. Would you consider un-protecting it to make it a redirect to Eastbound & Down, a show on HBO with a main character named Kenny Powers? I figured I would bring it up with you before going to Deletion Review. Please let me know what you think. 204.111.251.203 (talk) 02:01, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

(I usually post as SuperNova but I'm having issues logging in right now; feel free to respond there if you'd rather.)

Done. ➲ redvers see my arsenal 07:38, 20 May 2009

BWU

hey.. what i would like to know is how did my page get deleted... The Page was 'Black White United' It was about stopping racism and trying to make a difference in this world.. and the reason for deletion was that it had no purpose? i would like to get the page back. and have it permanently put on Wikipedia... because we all got to start somewhere if we want to make a difference... thank you... and also i don't know how my page breached the A7 guideline because yes the page was about an organization but it had an importance. Racism still goes on in my area and my suburbs next to me. and the only way to reach out to people is by word of mouth. and Wikipedia provides a good source for that outreach that i am trying to deliver here.. what i would simply ask you to do is read over my page.. and tell me how i can improve it so that it is eligible to stay on the net. thank you Jonathan 'Da Duke' Duketis (talk) 11:22, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

WP:CSD#A7 for the rules regarding deletion. WP:N for the rules regarding notability in Wikipedia. Remember, Wikipedia is not for stuff you made up one day. All articles must have reliable, third-party checkable sources. And: notability first, Wikipedia article second, never the other way around. ➲ redvers see my arsenal 11:25, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
??? How is this just make it up on the day spot. who am i going to get, as a third party source... i made this a while ago. and only requesting it be put on... and what notability do i need? isn't that article good enough??? I'm lost... sorry I'm just new to this and do not understand all these guidelines. Jonathan 'Da Duke' Duketis (talk) 11:36, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
Reliable sources include national newspapers, news stories on reputable third party websites (not blogs, not press releases) and announcements of funding from government or intergovernmental agencies. All information given to Wikipedia must be verifiable from checkable sources. If your organisation is not verifiable from checkable sources, it can't have an entry on Wikipedia. Notability first, Wikipedia article second, never the other way around. ➲ redvers see my arsenal 11:41, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
ok... i get you know.. well no government is going to fund BWU. so what can i do to publish a page on BWU so that people can see it.. and respond in a way to reach out to the inequality in this world... and how can i get my page back at least. because it took me a while to create that page.. i am new to this...all i want is some help. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Jony joga da best (talkcontribs)
I'll userfy the text for you temporarily. But note this: you cannot have a page on Wikipedia for your "organisation" until you have actual, verifiable sources. There's no arguing with this: it's Wikipedia's Prime Directive. ➲ redvers throwing my arms around Paris 11:50, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
The text is now temporarily at User:Jony joga da best/Black White United. ➲ redvers throwing my arms around Paris 11:53, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
yes i understand. there is no arguing with you.. what if i call it something else other than an organization....? let me tell you the story... while back around my neighborhood there is this gang (and multiple other gangs in different areas) that goes around beating up people that are simply not 'aussie' and on top of that stealing their equipment such as i-pods, laptops etc. i made up BWU to form a gang/group/ a 'Label' of a resistance to overcome people that do that sort of things... BWU meaning Black White United.. implies that everyone from black to white will unite to make this world safe from racists... because if everyone can unite together.. there wouldn't be much room for racist/hate groups to grow... So what else could i label 'BWU' so that i could tell people about it.. all i ask is for help to get it on... doesn't matter what it takes to get it up there.. Jonathan 'Da Duke' Duketis (talk) 12:04, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
No, it's not that there's no arguing with me, it's that there's no arguing with Wikipedia. Your story is lovely, I'm sure (tl;dr), but you miss the important fact: WP:V conquers all. ➲ redvers throwing my arms around Paris 12:06, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

ahhk i see. well can you help me maybe.? to make it so it obeys the guidelines of wikipedia... —Preceding unsigned comment added by Jony joga da best (talkcontribs)

No, I can't help make your organisation notable or verifiable. Only you can do that. And after that's done, then you can have an article. But not until. ➲ redvers throwing my arms around Paris 12:13, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
ok i will try... i will get back to you.. and then you can maybe have a look at it when i finish with it to see if it is applicable with Wikipedia guidelines... but till then thank you... Jonathan 'Da Duke' Duketis (talk) 12:26, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

Thank you for your ongoing help in interpreting for me wtf is going on! I appreciate it!! Pdfpdf (talk) 14:27, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

Why? Pdfpdf (talk) 14:46, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
This very busy page is patrolled by a series of bots, which keep the page ticking over to let us react quickly. Additions like that can break the operation of the bots, slowing everything down. Also, and, really, no offence is intended, 99% of editors are able to work out how the page works almost instantly, or at least follow the links in the header to see how it works, or watch it for 5 minutes to see how everyone else does it, or look in the history and see how everbody else did it.

Bart Has Two Mummies

I noticed you deleted "Bart Has Two Mummies" witch probably redirected to "Bart Has Two Mommies" for the reason "CSD R3: Implausible typo", but I disagree that it is implausible. "Mummies" is the British spelling of the American "Mommies".--Emmette Hernandez Coleman (talk) 22:42, 4 June 2009 (UTC)

This redirect was, for some reason, very very controversial in its time. However, I simply can't remember at this remove what was controversial about it. Nevertheless, I think community input would be needed. May I suggest you take it to WP:DELREV just to get a spread of opinion? I happen to still believe that it's a ludicrous redirect (and I'm British), but the consensus may have changed or have never existed. ➲ redvers throwing my arms around Paris 07:38, 5 June 2009 (UTC)
