Alan Hale article[edit]

Subsections

Did You Know?[edit]

The article got just over 12,000 views due to DYK appearance (See here), but my analysis indicates it would have been ~38,000 if not fot DYK hook modification by DYK admins. RobP (talk) 13:44, 11 February 2017 (UTC)

Tweet[edit]

This article was sent in a tweet by Wikipedia's Twitter account on 11/8/16, resulting in over 13,000 pageviews (slightly more than its DYK posting results).[1]

Updated DYK query.svgOn 18 October 2016, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Alan Hale (astronomer), which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that Alan Hale, who discovered Comet Hale–Bopp (pictured), said that he "predicted" its appearance would trigger suicides‍—‌and it turned out he was right? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Alan Hale (astronomer). You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Alan Hale (astronomer)), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

Good article nomination[edit]

Summary: The article was promoted to a GA on 2/9/18, but shortly thereafter rolled-back to a B when the original reviewer was chastised for routinely doing shallow reviews. After making a set of small changes requested by a second reviewer, Mike_Christie, the GA status was again granted to the article on 2/17/18.

Hey there. Sorry I did not have time to rescue the GA review. I have a lot going on IRL right now and was not able to put the effort in I would have liked to. In the meantime, you may want to have the Guild of Copy Editors look at it, or otherwise copy edit it yourself. That was the main thing that stuck out to me while I was reviewing it. If I get time I will copy edit it, but I will probably let someone else review it at that point. Thanks for the work on the article! Kees08 (Talk) 19:00, 14 December 2017 (UTC)

@Kees08:

OK.... How does one get a review by this Guild? RobP (talk) 02:45, 15 December 2017 (UTC)
Follow the instructions on WP:WikiProject Guild of Copy Editors/Requests, and it will be about a month. They will probably be done with it before your article is reviewed. Kees08 (Talk) 03:12, 15 December 2017 (UTC)

Ambox warning yellow.svg

Proposed deletion[edit]

The article Kenny Biddle has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Non-notable individual lacking in-depth, non-trivial support. Article is a vanity advertisement for subject. References are brief mentions or articles written by subject.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages 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.

In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. reddogsix (talk) 04:19, 5 January 2018 (UTC)

Nomination of Kenny Biddle for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Kenny Biddle is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The Photo Ark article[edit]

Subsections

File:The Photo Ark (book cover).png[edit]

Hi, I'm RonBot, a script that checks new non-free file uploads. I have found that the subject image that you recently uploaded was more than 5% in excess of the Non-free content guideline size of 100,000 pixels. I have tagged the image for a standard reduction, which (for jpg/gif/png/svg files) normally happens within a day. Please check the reduced image, and make sure that the image is not excessively corrupted. Other files will be added to Category:Wikipedia non-free file size reduction requests for manual processing. There is a full seven-day period before the original oversized image will be hidden; during that time you might want to consider editing the original image yourself (perhaps an initial crop to allow a smaller reduction or none at all). A formula for calculation the desired size can be found at WP:Image resolution, along with instructions on how to tag the image in the rare cases that it requires an oversized image (typically about 0.2% of non-free uploads are tagged as necessarily oversized). Please contact the bot owner if you have any questions, or you can ask them at Wikipedia talk:Non-free content. RonBot (talk) 17:20, 9 June 2018 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Seward Johnson's Forever Marilyn sculpture on display at the Grounds for Sculpture in 2014 (closeup of foot).jpg[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Seward Johnson's Forever Marilyn sculpture on display at the Grounds for Sculpture in 2014 (closeup of foot).jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F9 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the file appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted content borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay.

File source problem with File:Forever Marilyn sculpture on display at the Grounds for Sculpture in 2014.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Forever Marilyn sculpture on display at the Grounds for Sculpture in 2014.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Copying within Wikipedia requires proper attribution[edit]

Information icon Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you copied or moved text from Belgian UFO wave into Black triangle (UFO). While you are welcome to re-use Wikipedia's content, here or elsewhere, Wikipedia's licensing does require that you provide attribution to the original contributor(s). When copying within Wikipedia, this is supplied at minimum in an edit summary at the page into which you've copied content, disclosing the copying and linking to the copied page, e.g., copied content from [[page name]]; see that page's history for attribution. It is good practice, especially if copying is extensive, to also place a properly formatted {{copied}} template on the talk pages of the source and destination. The attribution has been provided for this situation, but if you have copied material between pages before, even if it was a long time ago, please provide attribution for that duplication. You can read more about the procedure and the reasons at Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia. Thank you. If you are the sole author of the prose that was moved, attribution is not required. — Diannaa 🍁 (talk) 21:58, 4 October 2016 (UTC)

FDA vs FTC in Homeopathy[edit]

Hey, I like your recent additions to Homeopathy but it seems like you've interchanged "FDA" and "FTC" in the text a little. For instance the citation you added named "FDA2016" is actually an FTC document and although it mentions the FDA in passing, doesn't commit the FDA to doing anything. Likewise the next sentence talks about "an FDA press release" but the citation is to a press release on the FTC website. I was going to fix it for you but I figured you might still be editing and I just thought I'd call it out. --Krelnik (talk) 20:38, 18 November 2016 (UTC)

Your GA review of Osteopathy[edit]

Rp2006, if you wish to do a valid review of this article, please follow the instructions at WP:GANI. Reviews should go by this process, and occur on their own page, not be inserted directly on the article's talk page. I'm going to revert your edit there; you are welcome to open the review properly and include your comments on that page, and then close it per the instructions. Thank you for your cooperation. BlueMoonset (talk) 14:50, 1 April 2017 (UTC)

I have just looked at the article history, and I see that you've made 16 edits to the article. According to the GA instructions, reviewers should Not be the nominator nor have made significant contributions to the article prior to the review. Since that is the case, you may not be eligible to review it. What I would suggest instead is to post your issues on the talk page, and how the article falls short of the GA criteria, though not as a formal GA review. When the article does get a reviewer, you can then post a pointer to your talk-page post on the review page, and any further explanation you feel appropriate. Thanks again. BlueMoonset (talk) 17:01, 1 April 2017 (UTC)

Rollback granted[edit]

Wikipedia Rollbacker.svg

Hi Rp2006. After reviewing your request for "rollbacker", I have enabled rollback on your account. Keep in mind these things when going to use rollback:

  • Getting rollback is no more momentous than installing Twinkle.
  • Rollback should be used to revert clear cases of vandalism only, and not good faith edits.
  • Rollback should never be used to edit war.
  • If abused, rollback rights can be revoked.
  • Use common sense.

If you no longer want rollback, contact me and I'll remove it. Also, for some more information on how to use rollback, see Wikipedia:Administrators' guide/Rollback (even though you're not an admin). I'm sure you'll do great with rollback, but feel free to leave me a message on my talk page if you run into troubles or have any questions about appropriate/inappropriate use of rollback. Thank you for helping to reduce vandalism. Happy editing! Beeblebrox (talk) 23:53, 11 April 2017 (UTC)

Change to RPM reverted.[edit]

Your change to RPM has been reverted. Per WP:MALPLACED, please do not point "Foo" titles to "Foo (disambiguation)" titles. Also, please do not ever change the nature of a redirect with a large number of incoming links without first obtaining consensus. Please note that all incoming links must be fixed before such a change is made. bd2412 T 15:59, 29 April 2017 (UTC)

"Paranormal" and UFOs[edit]

Please do not add "paranormal" banner to pages such as Majestic 12 and other articles, when the explanation for these events are either a hoax, or has been explained in ways that have nothing to do with any paranormal activities. If you disagree, please take your reasons to the article(s) Talk page. Thank you and regards, David J Johnson (talk) 21:44, 29 April 2017 (UTC)

Copying my response from Talk:Roswell UFO incident:
@David J Johnson:: To me, your take that this and other UFO-related articles should not connected with the word "paranormal" is extremely odd. What do you make of the fact that the paranormal side banner (which you deleted) actually includes UFOs in its list, and that most all UFO topics have the WikiProject Paranormal banner on their talk pages? Also note that in the category listed below for this article, "paranormal" is included numerous times. As I understand it, your objection to this is because UFO's are not "real"? Well (likely) neither is Bigfoot or ghosts or energy healing, so are you going to claim those - or anything else that is wrong or a hoax - is not a valid paranormal topic either? If that were true, then nothing at all would be classified that way, and the word would lose all meaning! RobP (talk) 00:50, 30 April 2017 (UTC)

Rebuttal section argument[edit]

Hey, with all due respect, why in the world did you remove the rebuttal section in this article, here?

Thank you for weighing in on the [talk page, here https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Tyler_Henry&diff=next&oldid=782698059] about your edit. However, your removal of this section has made the article one-sided and biased.

I agree my edit was "too short," but what do you propose as the solution. Please don't complain unless you have a better idea. I mean, all that psychic stuff is spooky (and I honestly don't know whether it's true or not), but you have this huge section "against" the subject, and the small section "for" him was deleted, making a biased article even more biased. This is not encyclopedic.

But, if you mean that my edit (adding the rebuttal section in right here) was too brief and curt, I would agree with you. Help me fix that, so the article is balanced and explains both (or all) sides of the issue. Thank you.96.59.177.219 (talk) 04:58, 29 May 2017 (UTC)

  • To be fair, I also added a criticism on religious grounds (saying he is fake if he gets his information from demons), which helps balance the article, since I added back in the thing you deleted, but expanding it to make it Encyclopedic. Read both my edits before you make a decision, ok? Thanks.96.59.177.219 (talk) 05:46, 29 May 2017 (UTC)
The problem is not that your edit was too short. A Wiki article is not the place to have an ongoing argument. Reliably cited facts are stated in a Wiki article and then, when appropriate, challenged... either in a criticism section as here, or after each point. There is no Rebuttal section needed. Should there then be a Rebuttal to the rebuttals section? And so on? If there are more (reliably sourced) facts on the positive side, add them to the sections above Criticisms. Also, please open an official Wiki account. RobP (talk) 13:23, 29 May 2017 (UTC)

B&B AfD[edit]

AfD

I hope you see how you screwed yourself at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Pink House (Melbourne Beach, Florida). I think you overestimated the degree to which editors would respond to your call that BnBs were involved in writing articles about these houses in order to help business. You kept adding new entries after the AfD started under that same rationale and the aggregate refused, preferring to keep NRHP sites. I made the case in my comment that GEOFEAT requires more than listing but you didn't make that case and you confused the issue. Sometimes you're going to do a good job of providing rationale and the aggregate will just vote per WP:ILIKEIT, which they do pretty often. Sometimes, however, you present a less-than-stellar case and you get your ass handed to you. I wanted to see deletions but that didn't happen and your AfD stats remain a pathetic 0% with consensus. Anyway, please learn this lesson and perhaps next time you'll be more successful. Chris Troutman (talk) 20:20, 28 July 2017 (UTC)

@Chris troutman: First off. What's with the hostile attitude? Second, I screwed myself? How did I do anything to myself? I don't actually have a horse in this race. I observed something that seemed untoward, and put it out there for the community of those who might care (and know better) to confirm or deny. If they decide to KEEP, so be it. And as for the "you kept adding new entries..." Well I actually did it all in one sitting within a very short time. (Maybe a half hour?) I put the first B&B up for AfD and only then discovered the bulk option. So I went right to work adding the others that looked to me to be related. How was I to know some folks would be so hot to vote almost instantly before I was done, and then others would use that as an excuse to say KEEP? In any case, it seems that what I did wrong was to lump houses together incorrectly, not realizing the differences in the type of house. As I understand it, you are free to fine tune this and try again. So if you are more knowledgeable about this subject than am I, just renominate the B&Bs that you feel are of the same type type and deserving of deletion. A sincere good luck!

No hostility on my end; I apologize if it sounded that way. Again, I agree with what you were trying to do. What you saw was untoward. I thought you went about it the wrong way and the inclusionists got you. I'm not going to renominate any of those this year as the aggregate's going to reject it. Maybe 2018, if I even get around to it. Anytime any page goes live you should expect others to see it within minutes. You own your AfD ratio. If you don't care, fine. For me, if I make a nomination under a rationale and it fails, I'd take the aggregate's rebuke seriously. So, for you to say that you don't care sounds like you didn't believe in the case you were making. AfD isn't a method of throwing spaghetti at the wall to see what sticks. I was offering advice to help you, which I guess isn't wanted. Chris Troutman (talk) 00:13, 29 July 2017 (UTC)
Hey RobP i came here to sympathize about Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Pink House (Melbourne Beach, Florida) in a friendly way, which I think is what User:Chris troutman was meaning here too. I don't understand everything Chris troutman is saying but agree with the general gist of it; he is sharing about how hard it is sometimes with AFDs when a bunch of wp:inclusionists get riled up, as happened here, and he is trying to suggest how to be more successful. I am an inclusionist myself, but i am feeling a bit cranky and commented negatively about the NRHP articles having existed 10 years without improvement. I mostly work on NRHP articles. Me and the other NRHP editors have succeeded perhaps too well in convincing others that "if NRHP then good sources exist, so Keep" (even without the sources being included). I wouldn't advise trying to get any NRHP articles deleted, as will probably fail, although I do agree the category you pointed to, of houses in Florida (almost all NRHPs) is quite bad quality. FYI, it is especially bad because [Wikipedia's] NRHP coverage in Florida is the poorest of anywhere: there are about 2800 NRHP articles nationwide which a bot detects and labels with "NRIS-only" tag identifying as being very minimal; one quarter of those, 780 recently, are in Florida (which is about 1/2 of all Florida NRHP articles being minimal, a far higher percentage than anywhere else, [despite NRHP nomination documents actually being available online for almost all Florida NRHPs, but not used]). The bot statistics are at WikiProject NRHP workspace page wp:NRHPPROGRESS, by the way. Hope this helps give some perspective somehow. Cheers, --doncram 00:42, 29 July 2017 (UTC)
There is also now ongoing Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Suydam House about another NRHP article. --doncram 22:14, 3 August 2017 (UTC)

Re: ATT Network block of IP 107.77.224.0/22[edit]

Hi Rob, I blocked that range because of how quickly IP addresses change within it, making it very easy for vandalism to slip by unnoticed or improperly reverted. See this page history (from my edit onwards) for an example of this). A lot of edits from that range are also vandalism. I think the vandalism risk is outweighed by the collateral damage in this case. As you said, users affected by that block can still log in to edit; it's also possible for them to create an account if need be. Graham87 14:09, 20 January 2018 (UTC)

Re: editcount userbox[edit]

Hi there! I found a userbox which I think was created by you at User:UBX/LiveEditCounter, and I have a question. Is there a way to reduce the size of the font in the box on the left? I'd like to sort this among my other userboxes but it's taller than the rest. I looked at the code but it's way beyond my skill set to try any tweaks. Thanks for any help you can give me - Her Pegship (speak) 17:43, 15 August 2018 (UTC)

Hi. Sorry, but my userbox User:Rp2006/LiveEditCounter used the one you found as a starting point. I experimented and made some adjustments to the original, but I barely understand how it works!
Thanks for the speedy reply. Off to UBX with my question! Her Pegship (speak) 18:00, 17 August 2018 (UTC)
