Nov 2020: Why do you think IOHK as a source may be spammy?[edit]

Hello, I'm an editor at IOHK. I've been commenting on Talk pages for the past 2 years to try to discover why the Cardano (cryptocurrency platform) page was deleted (it has recently been restored). I have come to the view that editing on IOHK-related pages is very aggressive. An aspect of this is that 2 editors have deleted IOHK-related material and specifically called it 'spam'. However, no-one has said why this is the case, just referring to a general sanctions page. So I'm trying to find out how this idea has been propagated and where the discussion was had that IOHK and its associated trust are spam. Why do you think IOHK as a source may be spammy? And where do you look up such things? Thanks for your time. IOHKwriter (talk) 11:58, 27 November 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sharkmob draft questions[edit]

Hi, I saw that you reviewed the Sharkmob draft I made. As I understand it its "missing significant coverage (not just passing mentions) about the subject in published, reliable, secondary sources that are independent of the subject.". I'm not sure what kind of material that would constitute that kind of material. Is it the reliable part or the significant coverage part that is the problem? Would love some advise on how to resolve it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by TroutSlinger (talkcontribs) 07:42, 27 May 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@TroutSlinger: hello. The issue with Draft:Sharkmob is that said draft does not cite the level of in-depth, independent coverage needed to establish the topic as meeting WP:NCORP, Wikipedia's criteria for notable companies. NCORP has many stipulations, but can be surmised by saying that topics need to have accrued significant coverage in reliable sources - things like press releases or WP:PRIMARY information do not count. The best way to address this issue is to seek out and add reliable sources to your draft so that it passes NCORP. Best. SamHolt6 (talk) 12:27, 27 May 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I also should note however that - if Sharkmob has not released any games - it is likely WP:TOOSOON for an encyclopedia article and thus unlikely to survive in the mainspace. SamHolt6 (talk) 12:27, 27 May 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@SamHolt6: Thanks for the reply. I'll probably let it rest for a bit then and get back to it in a few mounths.

Articles for Creation: List of reviewers by subject notice[edit]

Hi SamHolt6, you are receiving this notice because you are listed as an active Articles for Creation reviewer.

Recently a list of reviewers by area of expertise was created. This notice is being sent out to alert you to the existence of that list, and to encourage you to add your name to it. If you or other reviewers come across articles in the queue where an acceptance/decline hinges on specialist knowledge, this list should serve to facilitate contact with a fellow reviewer.

To end on a positive note, the backlog has dropped below 1,500, so thanks for all of the hard work some of you have been putting into the AfC process!

Sent to all Articles for Creation reviewers as a one-time notice. To opt-out of all massmessage mailings, you may add Category:Wikipedians who opt out of message delivery to your user talk page. Regards, Sam-2727 (talk)

Request on 23:49:42, 15 June 2020 for assistance on AfC submission by Vanessabruvi[edit]


Hello. I am a paid intern to get his page back up. I understand wikipedias rules and policies, and I am so sorry I was so confused. But can you please help me come up with ways in which I can get his page back on in a normal and ethical manner that meets wikipedia's policies. Do you recommend I keep using the talk page?

Vanessabruvi (talk) 23:49, 15 June 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Vanessabruvi: hi. Thank you for making the disclosure - it is required by Wikipedia's terms of use, and our community considers interns to be paid employees. Moving on to Draft:Mel Elias, said draft was created by a paid editor who was blocked and has been out of the mainspace for several years. To have it returned to the mainspace without likely facing deletion again, I recommend the article be submitted through WP:AFC so that a reviewer can look at it and determine if the topic is notable. Best. SamHolt6 (talk) 11:39, 17 June 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Request for assistance[edit]

Hi! It's me again. Would you recommend that I put "{{AFC submission|||ts=20200617173749|u=Vanessabruvi|ns=3}}" in the edit section of the profile so that it can be examined by someone else? Or are you saying that I need to recreate the Mel Elias page all over again.

@Vanessabruvi: re-submitting the draft to AfC is the way to move forward. Once done, another reviewer will make a determination on the draft. SamHolt6 (talk) 23:24, 17 June 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

DiversityComm, Inc. Wikipedia page[edit]

Hello -- Can you please tell me more about why our company's Wikipedia page is now a Draft and is no longer visible when you search on wikipedia for it? Please e-mail me at kcastagnoli@diversitycomm.net Thank you! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 107.184.27.50 (talk) 16:49, 23 June 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello Ip. I came across the article for DiversityComm as part of my role as a WP:NPR and found that it contained hallmarks of either COI or undisclosed paid editing (both of which violate Wikipedia's core policies of WP:NOTPROMO, WP:NOTADVOCACY and potentially the site's terms of use if undeclared), and as such I draftified the article so that it could be vetted by WP:AFC. I also contacted the editor who created the article, but have yet to receive a response. As things stand now, the draft could likely pass through WP:AFC without major issue if it were submitted, and I have no objections to another editor submitting the draft. If you choose to do so, please read WP:COI, WP:PAID and make the required disclosures. Thank you. SamHolt6 (talk) 00:42, 24 June 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Request on 20:36:30, 9 July 2020 for assistance on AfC submission by Vanessabruvi[edit]


Hello. I am reaching out again, because I have not gotten any feedback on the Mel Elias page. Do you have any advice to give me about going about enhancing/ publishing his page. Please let me know I would love the help.

@Vanessabruvi: hi again. My advice (which I give to most AfC submitter) is to continue to add coverage of the subject in WP:RS - this increases the chance that the draft will be accepted by AfC reviewers. As far as said review is concerned, AfC has a backlog of ~2500 submissions to review get through, so it may be up to seven weeks maximum before someone reviews your draft. Best.

Article on Arzac[edit]

Dear Editor, Thank you for your prompt consideration of my submission. During these long stay-at-home months, I have tried to learn about Wikipedia organization and the source code used for writing articles. As an old-time assembler programmer, I found the source code intuitive and efficient and fun to write with. At this point, I have three articles in different stages of development that I believe would enrich Wikipedia. They are based upon my interest in history, economics, music and science. I do this work as a diversion and a way to organize my ideas. I do not receive any compensation or are associated with any entity related to this pro-bono work. The article submitted was entirely based upon materials available on the web and my own interpretation of the subject. If the present submission is not considered suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia, I will complete my other two projects and submit them instead. If they still do not meet the Wikipedia’s inclusion standard, I would still have enjoyed working on them and had no regrets. Thank you, ArvFolc — Preceding unsigned comment added by ArvFolc (talkcontribs) 11:10, 22 July 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@ArvFolc: ok. Given your contributions show you have only worked on one topic, please read WP:SOCK and note that if you edit using multiple accounts you should disclose so. Best. SamHolt6 (talk) 14:00, 22 July 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Article on Arzac[edit]

Comment: Also noting that all of the draft's references were access before its creation, which may mean this topic was previously in the mainspace under a different name. SamHolt6 (talk) 13:58, 22 July 2020 (UTC)

The article was drafted entirely off-line using simple source code and it took a couple of month working on spare times before I thought it was ready for submission, which obviously it was not. It was never in the "mainspace under a different name." I would seem that you, obviously an accomplished and experienced editor, are trying to tell me to desist editing and leave Wikipedia contribution to professionals. If that is the case I will accept it and continue being just a reader and benefiting from your effort. Thank you for your advice. — Preceding unsigned comment added by ArvFolc (talkcontribs) 15:51, 22 July 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Victor Vescovo article[edit]

Sam,

I see that there are cautions and caveats to the Victor Vescovo article initiated by you. I would like to help satisfy your concerns, as I believe that his recent history in the Challenger Deep is an important event in history. My book, "Deepest Pioneer", the history of the Bathyscaph Trieste will be distributed later this year by the US Naval Institute Press, and its concluding chapter compares the early technology of the Trieste when it made its dive to the bottom of the world's oceans in 1960, to the technological revolution displayed by Vescovo's tour-de-force at the Challenger Deep in 2019.

Many state that the Earth's final frontier is in the polar regions, and they may very well be right -- but if so, then the deep oceans are not a frontier, but rather mankind's first glimpse of an alien world. Vescovo's aggressive employment of revolutionary deep ocean technology is demonstrating that this alien world can now be entered safely at modest cost.

I'm sure that Lindbergh and Earhart were originally called self-promoters and adventurers, but their history-making flights demonstrated to the general population that manned-flight had come of age and would soon be entering the common weal. They are both now cultural icons and rightfully warrant long encyclopedic biographic articles. Vescovo is another of that ilk, at least in my opinion.

Recently, the Guinness Book of Records recognized him as holding the record for deepest manned dive -[1] This should be compared to Lindbergh's non-stop flight across the Atlantic; and Earhart's first women to fly non-stop to Europe as a demonstration of maturing technology.

Using his new technology, Vescovo has (in 2020) returned to the Challenger Deep and escorted the first woman -- Astronaut Kathryn Sullivan -- to the bottom of the world's oceans. This and other dives may look like promotion, but they serve to educate a public to a new capability. A new capability with unforeseeable consequences -- consequences just as unforeseeable as Lindbergh's first long distance flight.

Under my nom-de-wiki "Gwyncann" you can find some of my work recording all of the research vessels that have investigated the Challenger Deep. I'm not a very experienced participant in the Wikipedia project, but I would like to ensure that the historical importance of the recent radical improvement in deep sea technology is recognized and documented on Wikipedia -- including a proper biography of its most visible proponent today -- Victor Vescovo.

Can you educate me and guide me to properly format and compose in the proper tone of academic disinterest for the Vescovo article? What, specifically, are the elements that need to be addressed in the present write-up?

Thanks in advance,

Lee Mathers (Gwyncann) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gwyncann (talkcontribs) 01:31, 7 August 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

References

@Gwyncann: hello, and thanks for reaching out with this concern. As far as the Victor Vescovo article is concerned, my edit history there is very brief - I visited the article in September of 2019 in the wake of a WP:COIN investigation and tagged it for containing undisclosed paid editing, but later was successfully engaged by User:Vlvescovo (the discussion can be read here), and convinced to remove my tag. I have not edited the article since then, and the tag currently on the article was added in this edit this June. The article in question remains on my watchlist, but for now I have other topics I would like to focus on and as such will likely not be playing an active roll in this process.
As far as advice I can give you, I recommend you start a talk page discussion on why you feel the tag should be removed. As for any changes to the text of the article, you can be WP:BOLD add any content you feel should be included (keeping in mind WP:COI, which discourages but does not disallow editors with a conflict of interest from editing relevant topics) keeping WP:BRD in mind. Alternately, you can use Wikipedia's edit request feature to discuss potential changes on the article talk page. Wishing the best, as you clearly have an interest in improving Wikipedia.

Wikipedia isn't meant to be a personal directory or personal website (see WP:NOT). You cannot use it to share information about myself with all people. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 19:05, 30 August 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Surangi Teacher: unfortunately, Wikipedia does not allow outright resumes to be published (WP:RESUME) as it contradicts WP:NOT. Hickory is correct that the platform is not intended to be used to promote oneself. SamHolt6 (talk) 19:39, 30 August 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Don't delete other users comments[edit]

You are not entitled to delete other editors comments without showing cause. An experienced editor like you should know better. Bacondrum (talk) 00:54, 31 August 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Bacondrum:, Sam stated on my talkpage that it was accidental. Hemiauchenia (talk) 00:56, 31 August 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
My apologies then to SamHolt6 then. I must say I was shocked to see an experienced editor doing that. Makes sense that it was an accident. Bacondrum (talk) 00:58, 31 August 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Bacondrum:@Hemiauchenia: no problem at all, sorry for any alarm. The tricky thing about rollback is that is instant; a single click made by a distracted person (me) can do some damage. Best. SamHolt6 (talk) 01:07, 31 August 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

All Hands - A Wiki Edit-A-Thon for Newfoundland and Labrador[edit]

Hi Sam,

I'm the facilitator of the All Hands edit-a-thon for Newfoundland and Labrador. I wanted to say thank you for your interest in our little campaign. Now that the campaign is over, we're interested in seeing what our final numbers are like and what kind of impact we've had on Newfoundland-related topics on Wikipedia. However, because of your prolific activity on Wikipedia, our dashboard has been collecting and counting all that activity too, and it has thrown our statistics out of whack. I hope you'll understand that I've removed you from our dashboard so that we can have a more accurate picture of our participants' activities. Thanks for joining and thank you for your activities on Wikipedia at large! LesserJerome (talk) 15:59, 31 August 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@LesserJerome: not a problem at all. If you would like to factor in my contributions directly related to Newfoundland, it would be 5 articles (Newfoundland Loggers' Strike, George Webber (poet), Francis Lind, Nunaksaluk Island, Fort Amherst Lighthouse) and ~35 edits. Best, and thanks for letting me acquaint myself with N&L; it was fun. SamHolt6 (talk) 16:13, 31 August 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@SamHolt6: Yes, thank you, I will count those. I initially wanted to simply turn off tracking for all your out-of-scope edits, but you had so many edits and the dashboard was not operating correctly so it wasn't a viable option. Thanks again!

Mel Elias Page[edit]

Hi Again,

I just want to say how I've appreciated your help in the past. But, is there any way that we can expedite the process to getting the page published? Over the past few months I have been adding more information and links, but have found no luck. Please let me know if you have any recommendations. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Vanessabruvi (talkcontribs) 17:39, 31 August 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Vanessabruvi: hi. To answer your question there is no direct way to expedite the AfC process. The best course of action is normally to wait for an AfC reviewer to eventually review your submission as it works its way further back in the que. However, this seems to be a moot point as another reviewer has declined your draft and a third left negative feedback. Best. SamHolt6 (talk) 12:59, 1 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Squirrel Nut Zippers Musical Candy submission.[edit]

Hi SamHolt,

Thanks for your input.

One of the obstacles I am struggling with is this film was created pre-internet so many of the sources are not online. However, I have a binder of original newspaper cutouts of newspapers & magazines articles discussing this project and I can cite the specific publication, date & author. However, many/most of these are not online. Can I scan those and post them to the page to cite as a source or simply cite as a source?

Thank you. (Claywalk (talk) 20:41, 31 August 2020 (UTC)claywalkReply[reply]

Submission Reco Jefferson[edit]

Hi! I saw you reviewed (about a month ago) a submission I made. I have read through the articles on significant coverage. I'm trying to understand which criteria was being missed. Thank you for any and all assistance in this matter. Lino.asst (talk) 23:49, 1 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Lino.asst: hi. So, for a biography like Draft:Reco Jefferson to be considered for inclusion in Wikipedia, the topic needs to meet WP:BIO. The criteria for inclusion is that in-depth, independent coverage of the subject be found in WP:RS. As far as your draft is concerned, you currently have two sources cited and reviewers normally look for three at a minimum (WP:THREE). In addition, one of the sources you have cited (from the Hustler's Digest) is borderline unreliable; the other one is fine. So at this point you should look for and add any in-depth, independent coverage about the subject in WP:RS to the draft and re-submit said draft for another reviewer to look at. Best.

@Bobby Prabawa: hi. I understand your concerns, but for the moment I will not be returning Draft:Corine Tap to the mainspace. The draft should be submitted to and then reviewed by WP:AFC to address any notability concerns. In addition, please keep in mind that if you have been paid to create/edit the article you are required to disclose so - see WP:PAID and WP:TOU.

Sigma Beauty[edit]

Dear SamHolt6, Thank you for putting the Draft:Sigma Beauty into the draft mode as I used it to practice my editing skill and page moving capabilities. I moved Sigma Beauty from "Draft" to "Main Article Namespace" after restructuring the article, adding a few relevant citations, and removing the words which seem to be puffery in the first place. However, your approval is a must. If you still feel this page fails WP:NCORP, then I suggest you nominate this article for an WP:AFD/WP:CSD because there is nothing much to add. You have my full support on this. -Hatchens (talk) 11:53, 11 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Hatchens: hi. I have gone over the article and made my series of changes. The article does rely (like many company articles) on churnalist/borderline/listing articles as sources, but looking through it I see no pressing need to nominate it for deletion. Looks to be more of a cleanup situation. Best. SamHolt6 (talk) 13:12, 11 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Reference formatting[edit]

Hi. I'm not sure if you've noticed, but most of the references in your original rewrite of the Si Ouey article (Special:Permalink/977462336) had the author fields mangled.

@Paul 012: that is interesting... as far as I remember I used the automatic citation tool (as usual). Maybe it was the heavy use of foreign language sources that contributed to these errors? If this becomes a running theme I will submit a bug report. Best. SamHolt6 (talk) 13:23, 15 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello,

After last year's debacle (multiple submissions declined and then rejection), I am trying to rewrite the page on Cafetran Espresso, starting from scratch. This time, I will directly liaise with the people in charge of the evaluation in the past (same message on their talk page), and ask for your assistance.

Disclaimer: I am not at all involved in the development of CTE. I am just a professional translator whose bacon was saved by the tool. Being quite active in various translator communities, I know for a fact that CTE is one of the most mentioned (which of course does not mean used) standalone CAT tool after SDL Trados, MemoQ and Wordfast (the other current big players being Cloud-based). It is particularly important for people under Linux, being quasi the only professional-grade tool. For us, CTE is not just notable. It is vitally important.

The conundrum I face is that, being in 2020, the immense majority of software comparisons are via blogs. CAT tools are not groundbreaking technology warranting a publication in research journals. And all other types of articles are now published via blogs or forums (personally, I cannot remember the last time I read a magazine, even online). This issue would be met with any CAT tool develop today.

So I started by deleting all the boasting, as well as the detailed technical descriptions, which can be re-introduce later if needed. I think what remains is more than a stub. I would appreciate your help to grow it until the point it can be acceptable as a page, without adding material that would fire up new controversies. Nicolas Gambardella (talk) 13:55, 29 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I was not as heavily involved in the draft as several other editors, but I would be fine with looking it over as it is sent through AfC again. Best. SamHolt6 (talk) 22:22, 1 October 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi Sam,

Thanks for yor message. I an not being compensated in no shape nor form. I am Portuguese born with my mom being Angolan and my dad from Guinea-Bissau. I am into electronic music myself. DJEFF is one if not, the biggest export from Angola to the world. I could divolge on how some artists don't get the deserve credit for their craft. As an artist that represents my countries, the type of music I like I want to make sure, I am able to deliver to the best of my capacity. If I think the page I created, can make better description of what I am attempting to describe, then I will strive for that. Which led me to ask on helpdesk and other users, how to change the name. I have seen it online, it seems something common and straight forward, hence why I was asking. Hope that answers your questions, if not, please feel free to ask anything else.

Please restore Sezzle for notability after converting to Draft over UDP concern of approving editor[edit]

It looks like Sezzle was disabled https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Sezzle&action=edit&redlink=1 - (Apologies I'm a bit of a wiki novice. Disclosure I'm currently head of Support for this company, I've posted a COI on my userpage)

For notability it's a publicly listed stock over $1 Billion valuation on ASX:SZL currently. https://www2.asx.com.au/markets/company/SZL

We are also mentioned on a competitor's wiki here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Afterpay

I've reviewed the draft on wiki2 and see no serious bias, but cannot find the wiki copy of the article to restore as it's been moved to Draft. Please advise on properly reversing the removed page or providing additional references / AfC. It seems as though not having a business page is also affecting some derivative services such as Google's business info.

@Davidwgustafson: hello. I took your comment to be a request for restoring the article (see WP:DRAFTIFY) and so the article is now back in the mainspace at Sezzle. The article definitely has some areas that could be improved - see the maintainence tags - but is probably not unsalvagable. Note this action was a reversal of my draftification and not an acceptance of the article through WP:AFC. I have also marked the article as un-reviewed, and so another editor will likely review it in the coming days. Best. SamHolt6 (talk) 15:44, 18 November 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Why do you think IOHK as a source may be spammy?[edit]

Hello, I'm an editor at IOHK. I've been commenting on Talk pages for the past 2 years to try to discover why the Cardano (cryptocurrency platform) page was deleted (it has recently been restored). I have come to the view that editing on IOHK-related pages is very aggressive. An aspect of this is that 2 editors have deleted IOHK-related material and specifically called it 'spam'. However, no-one has said why this is the case, just referring to a general sanctions page. So I'm trying to find out how this idea has been propagated and where the discussion was had that IOHK and its associated trust are spam. Why do you think IOHK as a source may be spammy? And where do you look up such things? Thanks for your time. IOHKwriter (talk) 11:58, 27 November 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@IOHKwriter: hi. You are correct in that Wikipedia editors take a cynical view of cryptocurrencies, and there is definitely a cloud hanging over the topic - as a reviewer who was active in 2018, I can say there is good reason the community imposed sanctions. Now to your issue. When I look at the IOHK sources removed from the Cardano article, I don't immediately think spam but I do see potential WP:PRIMARY concerns given IOHK's connection to Cardano. Wikipedia's PRIMARY policy differs slightly from the academic definition of primary sources, but the policy page is clear that primary sources can be used as long as the topic's notability has been established (in Cardano's case it has) and the sources are used with some care. If you want to re-add these citations, I would strongly recommend making in-text attributions to any IOHK-sourced content you want to add to the Cardano article, as this may alleviate some of the WP:PRIMARY concerns. I also cannot stress enough how important it is to continue to adhere to the procedure laid down at WP:BRD, even if the process is tedious. Wikipedia is built around community consensus, and so if you are reverted you should try to reach some consensus at Talk:Cardano (cryptocurrency platform) regarding what should be added to the article.
As for the second part of your question, I was not able to find any discussion regarding the reliability of IOHK. For example, to my knowledge IOHK has never been discussed at Wikipedia:Reliable sources/Noticeboard, where the community discusses the reliability of sources. If you are so inclined, you could yourself start a discussion on the noticeboard to determine if IOHK should be considered reliable. This would allow other editors who watch the board to comment on whether or not your website is a reliable source. I cant predict the outcome of this discussion, but it would help clear up any ambiguity surrounding the citing of IOHK. If you do create such a discussion, I recommend you show the community that IOHK has editorial controls in place (such as an editorial board or team, or a case of IOHK retracting an article) and has been cited by other reliable sources. A thorough reading of Wikipedia:Reliable sources, especially the section on biased or opinionated sources, may also lend you some insight. This hypothetical discussion at WP:RSN will not superseded WP:BRD on the Cardano article, but could leave you in a better position and may lead to more experienced editors taking an interest in the topic. Hopefully this helps, best. SamHolt6 (talk) 01:06, 28 November 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

New Page Patrol December Newsletter[edit]

Hello SamHolt6,

A chart of the 2020 New Page Patrol Queue

Year in review

It has been a productive year for New Page Patrol as we've roughly cut the size of the New Page Patrol queue in half this year. We have been fortunate to have a lot of great work done by Rosguill who was the reviewer of the most pages and redirects this past year. Thanks and credit go to JTtheOG and Onel5969 who join Rosguill in repeating in the top 10 from last year. Thanks to John B123, Hughesdarren, and Mccapra who all got the NPR permission this year and joined the top 10. Also new to the top ten is DannyS712 bot III, programmed by DannyS712 which has helped to dramatically reduce the number of redirects that have needed human patrolling by patrolling certain types of redirects (e.g. for differences in accents) and by also patrolling editors who are on on the redirect whitelist.

Reviewer of the Year

John B123 has been named reviewer of the year for 2020. John has held the permission for just over 6 months and in that time has helped cut into the queue by reviewing more than 18,000 articles. His talk page shows his efforts to communicate with users, upholding NPP's goal of nurturing new users and quality over quantity.

NPP Technical Achievement Award

As a special recognition and thank you DannyS712 has been awarded the first NPP Technical Achievement Award. His work programming the bot has helped us patrol redirects tremendously - more than 60,000 redirects this past year. This has been a large contribution to New Page Patrol and definitely is worthy of recognition.

Rg98[edit]

Hello, I am working on slowly building out the David Bowie brother article, based on significant coverage in books, media and songs. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rg98 (talkcontribs) 21:43, 10 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Rg98: Hi. I declined your draft as it cited one source and WP:AFC reviewers normally look for three sources at a minimum. In addition, you may want to replace this source as Wikipedia does not consider blogs to be reliable sources. Best. SamHolt6 (talk) 01:16, 11 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Biophilia Records[edit]

Hi Sam. I am acquainted with Fabian Almazan, the founder of Biophilia Records, as I had a career in the music industry for nearly 30 years. I have been retired for nearly 11 years, but still have some relationships to call on when I do Wikipedia pages. He asked me to do a page for his label, and I did (without payment) and took the redirect from his page off when I added the Biophila Records page. Apparently, once again, I am accused of paid editing. I've been through this before and I reiterate, I do not take money. (I live on Social Security now!). I am allowed to edit and create pages again with conditions and I have been abiding by that for nearly six months. Would you please take the redirect from Biophilia Records off, as it meets notability requirements and is a viable cool record label. I hope I've made sense. Although I have been working on Wikipedia pages for a few years now, I am constantly learning how to stay within the guidelines. Thank you for your time.EllenZoe (talk) 18:04, 18 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@EllenZoe: hi Ellen, i'll try to offer some insight. I will revert my edit and in doing so restore the article, after which the community will decide on notability, WP:DUE weight, etc. On the topic of COI/PAID editing, I can reiterate that editing with a conflict of interest is allowed, though the Wikipedia community has mixed views on the subject. In my case (which may be relatable as I edit under my own name) I always include a minor COI disclosure in my edits (example) which - in my experience - helps to assuage the doubts of the community, and so you might want to consider a similar strategy. Anyways best of luck in improving the article. SamHolt6 (talk) 02:41, 21 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you @SamHolt6: for putting the page back. I will take your advice and make the minor COI disclosure in my edits when appropriate. This is great advice.EllenZoe (talk) 16:00, 21 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

DYK for Cook Islands Local Defence Force[edit]

On 9 February 2021, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Cook Islands Local Defence Force, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that the Cook Islands Local Defence Force was expected to "uphold the prestige of the Cook Islands" by putting up a token resistance if the islands were invaded? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Cook Islands Local Defence Force. You are welcome to check how many pageviews the nominated article or articles got while on the front page (here's how, Cook Islands Local Defence Force), and if they received a combined total of at least 416.7 views per hour (ie, 5,000 views in 12 hours or 10,000 in 24), the hook may be added to the statistics page. 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.

Your DYK hook about the Cook Islands Local Defence Force, and its mandate to uphold the islands' prestige by putting up token resistance, received 6,343 page views (529 per hour) while on the Main Page. It is the one of most viewed hooks during the month of February and has thus earned a place on the February stats list. Keep up the great work! Cbl62 (talk) 17:50, 11 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Banksville Draft[edit]

Hi, I noticed you declined my Banksville draft on March 9th. I am trying to create a new page on the area of Banksville New York and Connecticut as a part of my Girl Scout Gold Award. I noticed that my page was declined because the "topic seems to already be covered on Wikipedia at Banksville, New York". My page is different than the Banksville, New York page because I am covering the history of the area of Banksville that covers both the states of CT and NY. Additionally, I am providing detailed information on the history of Banksville. Please let me know what I should change in order to get my work accepted. Thank you!

CoinMarketCap[edit]

Coin Market Cap is literally the most important website in the crypto space. If you were unsure that someone was unneutral in their editorial you could have removed or edited that. However removing the whole page is unjustified. Especially when I can see from the Draft:CoinMarketCap that it was well researched and well referenced. It is a diservice to wikipedia to have such an important topic removed. Kindly cancel your request for review and restore the page. M. Hassan talk here 17:38, 17 April 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

About your comment on Celestina007 talk page[edit]

Hello SamHolt6, my early days of editing i.e from August 2019 when I joined Wikipedia for the first time, every article I create, I'll announce it on Twitter. See this Archive link. That was how Yunshui removed my autopatrolled rights because he saw the Twitter posts and assumed I was advertising, but instead I was elated for finding out that someone can really edit Wikipedia even from Nigeria, while also sharing my Wikipedia experiences on both Facebook and Twitter. I created for Alex Nwankwo whom I have met prior in an event even without knowing what Conflict of Interest was and also announced on my Twitter page as usual. He commented on the Twitter post and suggested some names that might be notable. Among the 5 names that he suggested, it was Krystal Okeke that looks like she was notable and I created the article three months after. I'm just seeing the Modern Ghana post for the first time today. If he claimed that he was the one that got the article to be setup, it might be because he was the one who suggested the names for me. I didn't receive any payment or compensation for the article on Krystal Okeke or have I ever received any payment for all the articles I've created. Best, —Nnadigoodluck 04:13, 6 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Speedy deletion nomination of Shan United Army[edit]

Hello SamHolt6,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Shan United Army for deletion, because the article doesn't clearly indicate why the subject is important enough to be included in an encyclopedia.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. Thanks!

Welcoming New Volunteers[edit]

Note that the dates observed in bold under the underlined title of message help reflect and clarify the most current & oldest messages with the most current being at the top and the oldest being at the bottom.

Welcoming New Volunteers (25/06/2021)

  • We hereby want to officially welcome new volunteers who have recently joined the collaborative project and have volunteered to work in WP:NIGERIA. The arrival of new volunteers is often associated with the confusion of “what to do” on their part, it is then behoove of us to treat them with care, guide them, and protect them from the general pitfalls a new editor would most usually fall into. We are also admonished to clean up after them if they err and encourage them, most especially when they are genuine editors with potential to do good work not just for us, but for the community as a whole. Once more, we hereby thank all new editors who have volunteered to work here and hope they enjoy their stay here.

Requests for uncreated articles (24/1/2020)

  • Greetings & a great weekend to you all. It would be great if the (Requests for uncreated articles) section in our wiki project can be attended to & at least one article be created this weekend as some requests have been pending since 2016. I believe this would be pivotal to the encyclopedia as a whole & a means to get editors who have gone inactive to revive their Wikipedia activities.

Hello,

I see that my article submission on Sautabu o' Nakoroicake has been declined with reason I can agree with.

New Page Patrol newsletter September 2021[edit]

New Page Review queue September 2021

Hello SamHolt6,

Please join this discussion - there is increase in the abuse of Wikipedia and its processes by POV pushers, Paid Editors, and by holders of various user rights including Autopatrolled. Even our review systems themselves at AfC and NPR have been infiltrated. The good news is that detection is improving, but the downside is that it creates the need for a huge clean up - which of course adds to backlogs.

Copyright violations are also a serious issue. Most non-regular contributors do not understand why, and most of our Reviewers are not experts on copyright law - and can't be expected to be, but there is excellent, easy-to-follow advice on COPYVIO detection here.

At the time of the last newsletter (#25, December 2020) the backlog was only just over 2,000 articles. New Page Review is an official system. It's the only firewall against the inclusion of new, improper pages.

There are currently 706 New Page Reviewers plus a further 1,080 admins, but as much as nearly 90% of the patrolling is still being done by around only the 20 or so most regular patrollers.

If you are no longer very active on Wikipedia or you no longer wish to be part of the New Page Reviewer user group, please consider asking any admin to remove you from the list. This will enable NPP to have a better overview of its performance and what improvements need to be made to the process or its software.

Various awards are due to be allocated by the end of the year and barnstars are overdue. If you would like to manage this, please let us know. Indeed, if you are interested in coordinating NPR, it does not involve much time and the tasks are described here.

VdW & Co article[edit]

Hi there, I may be a bit misguided, so basically the SEO of our website is set to improve if we have a wiki link for our company, hence me creating the page. I see you rejected it, that's okay, but do you have any suggestions? — Preceding unsigned comment added by DuncanJamesWard (talkcontribs) 15:25, 20 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Developing The Hindu Temple of Delaware article[edit]

Hi,

I saw you read my message on The Hindu Temple of Delaware article talk page and wanted to ask if you were interested in helping me develop the article. I've been looking for scholarly sources online, but haven't had very much luck. Please let me know if you're interested, and we can definitely collaborate! --RealPharmer3 (talk) 20:27, 20 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
