Hi SamWalton9, sorry it's taken so long, but we're finally finalizing the newsletter and we were hoping you could give us a few responses to some questions. I realize this is kind of last minute, but the nominal deadline is Oct 7, and we may run a little over-due this time around. Anyway whenever you get a chance, the questions are posted here and you can answer as many or as few as you like. Unanswered questions will be removed from the final publication so you don't appear to be ignoring anything. You can answer however you like, and in in as few or as many words as you see fit. Thanks in advance, and if you have any questions don't hesitate to clarify them with me at my talk page. -Thibbs (talk) 13:56, 1 October 2015 (UTC)

  • Thanks for your responses! One additional note: I just made this edit to one of your responses. I'm guessing that it was a typo, but if that incorrectly changed the meaning of your sentence then please revert. Thanks again! -Thibbs (talk) 12:58, 6 October 2015 (UTC)
    • @Thibbs: Thanks; I think I'd just been typing for too long :) Let me know if there's anything else that doesn't make sense. Sam Walton (talk) 13:00, 6 October 2015 (UTC)

The Signpost: 30 September 2015[edit]

Mariel Pamintuan[edit]

Hi Sam Walton. Just a question about Mariel Pamintuan. You closed Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Mariel Pamintuan (2nd nomination) as "delete", but for some reason a redirect to My Daughter Daniela has been newly created using the same name. Is this something typically done for deleted articles and considered OK per WP:BLAR? I've seen AfDs where the result has been "redirect", but this option was not discussed at all for this article.

In addition, the redirect was made by a just created account whose only three edits: one to create the redirect and two to User talk:Athena07112001. This seems a bit unusual because WP:R is not something a new editor is typically very familiar with, and also because Athena07112001 has no history of editing any article. Just curious. Thanks in advance. - Marchjuly (talk) 04:32, 5 October 2015 (UTC)

@Marchjuly: While I'm familiar neither with the exact letter of the law nor common practice with regards to creating redirects over deletions, this seems ok to me. We can't expect that every deletion discussion will notice plausible redirects so one being created after a deletion seems ok. Sam Walton (talk) 11:36, 6 October 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for taking a look. Just was curious as to how it works. - Marchjuly (talk) 11:46, 6 October 2015 (UTC)
