Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Recall (person) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article appears to be about a real person, organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable. If this is the first page that you have created, then you should read the guide to writing your first article.

If you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the article (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. --Elkman (Elkspeak) 18:38, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

Soap MacTavish[edit]

I'm not sure that Soap MacTavish is notable enough to have his own article, but if you want to make one, I would use the existing page Soap MacTavish (currently a redirect to Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare) as it is easier to search for and to type (quote marks in particular are particularly problematic as many browsers convert them to strings beginning with %). (But you can keep the title you just made as a redirect to that.) There also seems to be some confusion about the spelling of the name ... is it Mc or Mac? I don't know, I don't play the game, I just like the name. Soap 19:51, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

How do i reply to this :o?

An administrator will have to delete the page in order to move it. I'll just let it be for now, to establish whether the page itself is going to stand. Soap 22:25, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

Ok, you can delete it, it's your choice of course, and you know what is best. I just thought since Call Of Duty 6 (Modern Warfare 2) is very popular nowadays, that it could be useful/good to have some information about the characters in the game.

I'm not an administrator, so I can't delete that. If you want it deleted, though, I can probably get it done. However I'm writing to tell you that the image you uploaded has been deleted from Commons, because it is a video game screenshot, and thus unfree, and "unfree" images are not allowed on Commons. You would likely be able to upload it here if you reduced the resolution to a lower value, though images arent an area of work I know much about and I could be wrong about that, too (but there are plenty of images in the Call of Duty articles as it is so I think that one more would be no different, so long as the resolution is low.) I'll try to come up with some more helpful advice, as I know Im doing much good by just telling you things youve done wrong and not how to do them right. Soap 02:43, 28 February 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, i apriciate it. Just kinda trying to learn something here, and help to build some articles. Cause, everybody knows something, right? Thanks anyways.

Gåten Ragnarok[edit]

Hello Simen113,

It seems to me that an article you worked on, Gåten Ragnarok, may be copied from http://www.tvmovielinks.com/movie/tt2363213/. It's entirely possible that I made a mistake, but I wanted to let you know because Wikipedia is strict about copying from other sites.

It's important that you edit the article and rewrite it in your own words, unless you're absolutely certain nothing in it is copied. If you're not sure how to fix the problem or have any questions, there are people at the help desk who are happy to assist you.

Thank you for helping build a free encyclopedia! MadmanBot (talk) 14:22, 22 September 2013 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Einar Tørnquist[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Einar Tørnquist has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, this newly created biography of a living person will be deleted unless it has at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within ten days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one.

Recent Urusov pages[edit]

Hi, I noticed you recently created a large number of disambiguations related to people with the surname Urusov, many of which include redlinks. Did you intend to create articles for all of these people? Please note that a name like Peter Urusov, which technically could refer to multiple people, should simply be redirected to the article Peter Arslanovich Urusov as this is the only person with an article. Intelligentsium 23:19, 13 July 2016 (UTC)

Please note also that the majority of English speakers are unfamiliar with Russian patronyms. We do not disambiguate between Russians with the same first name and surname by patronym, we disambiguate by claim to fame, e.g. Sergey Urusov (chess player), Sergey Urusov (positician) etc. MaxBrowne (talk) 23:59, 13 July 2016 (UTC)
Hello. I have plans to write several of these articles yes, but the main point I did it, is that I was looking for a Usunov, and the only article on Wikipedia led me to believe it was him (while it was another). I therefore imported from Russian Wikipedia a disambiguation, and also the disambiguations for the different given names + Usunov, which had more than one which was the same. As for Peter Arslanovich, I agree he should probably be at just Peter Urusov, but then I suggest moving the disambiguation page to Peter Urusov (disambiguation), as there are several noteworthy people with the name, so a disambiguation is in its place.--Simen113 (talk) 00:26, 14 July 2016 (UTC)

Who'd have thought! CassiantoTalk 07:05, 9 October 2017 (UTC)
Is this about infoboxes? Anyways, I think the article on Bach is a decent example of how infoboxes can be used to great effect even in articles on the finer arts.--Simen113 (talk) 05:28, 9 October 2017 (UTC)
I know! It's so fantastic I could cry! CassiantoTalk 07:04, 9 October 2017 (UTC)
Simen, take Klaus Huber, perhaps, or Max Reger (for a sample of what to expect when dealing with the harm-less looking boxes, look at the talk. Cassianto, what about improving the article?). My example is Beethoven, per community consensus. I try to avoid the topic, because it's not good for my health. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 09:05, 9 October 2017 (UTC)
What about it? You don’t need to preach to me the benefits of article improvement, Gerda. CassiantoTalk 10:08, 9 October 2017 (UTC)
Thank you, Cassianto, for this edit. Food for thought, not by me, about reader's needs being different, quoting (because it's longish): "On the other hand, it would really help if people who make "editorial choices" not to use infoboxes would do some more thinking about how they are going to serve their less prose-oriented readers - people who are just skimming, who aren't sure this article is the one they're looking for, who don't read English well, who are reading on their phones, who are trying to reuse our content, etc.". By Opabinia regalis. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 10:34, 9 October 2017 (UTC)
I don’t understand your thanks for this edit. Tagging information expecting others to do the work for them has always been a bug-bear of mine. And as for your link with regards to the reply to the odious SMcCandlish, the less said about him the better. CassiantoTalk 11:19, 9 October 2017 (UTC)
Another correction: the reply to an editor you named was short, the part I quoted was from a reply to me. - You and I feel the same about article tagging, - food for fighting them on Der Messias and BWV 80, where you also can take part in the PR. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 12:08, 9 October 2017 (UTC)
I had no idea I had stumbled upon such a tremendously sore topic in the Wikipedia community. I can see both sides, and how just a picture can look more aesthetically pleasing; however it can look a bit bare. Beethoven and Bach are, in my honest opinion, prime examples of a golden mean.--Simen113 (talk) 09:20, 9 October 2017 (UTC)
Omitting an infobox is not just about aesthetics. What about the myth that they aid metadata? They are repetitive? That they restrict the lead image? That they dumb down information to a series of bullet points? That they are trivia magnets? Or, and perhaps more seriously, that people can enforce one on an article that an editor has taken the time and expense to improve for the benefit of the project, just because they want to OWN the top right hand side of the page with repeated information? On the Bach article, tell me what information is in the box that is not in the lead? CassiantoTalk 10:08, 9 October 2017 (UTC)
Well obviously the age of his death which is otherwise complicated to derive. But it isn't about "repetition" in my view, but rather isolating some key facts about the person from a larger piece of text, listing them outside a wall of text for quick and easy overview. It is also difficult to find a list of his works from the main lead text, and doesn't directly state where he died. I all to well understand the frustration with putting a lot of effort and personality into an article only for it to be changed without your willing, but an infobox really isn't that big of a deal in the larger picture, and surely the project must be based on consensus, not some decision by the contributor that it is to be "so and such" forever?--Simen113 (talk) 10:32, 9 October 2017 (UTC)
Re Bach, the dates of birth and death are in the first line of the lead. I see no problem with adding the numerical age at the end of the last paragraph; I.e, “Bach died in Leipzig in 1750 aged 65”. One would naturally go to the last section re the death anyway as like with the death, it forms a conclusive end to a chronological piece of text. We are left with the signature, which is an utter waste of space. In fact, there’s a discussion about it at AN. Take all that away and you are left with no box.

Where's the list of his works in your reflections? - sorry for one more comment --Gerda Arendt (talk) 11:43, 9 October 2017 (UTC)
Why can’t that be given in the Compositions section, similar to what I do with the articles I write? Or, why can’t it be liked in the lead text? CassiantoTalk 11:51, 9 October 2017 (UTC)
It should be given there, no doubt about that, but you asked "On the Bach article, tell me what information is in the box that is not in the lead?" and one of the answers is: the list of works. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 11:58, 9 October 2017 (UTC)
Refer to my previous post; link it to a suitable word or words within the lead section. It does not need a box all to its own. CassiantoTalk 12:17, 9 October 2017 (UTC)
Is really hiding it in a large text making it even larger the easiest way for people to acquire the information?--Simen113 (talk) 12:18, 9 October 2017 (UTC)
It’s not being hidden. It’s prominatly displayed in the lead section. It could even be given in the first paragraph. You can’t get much more prominent than that. You say nothing about my ideas for the birth/death/age at death though. Thoughts? CassiantoTalk 12:28, 9 October 2017 (UTC)
I agree that it probably should be included. But still the debate would remain as to whether it is easily and quickly enough spotted for anyone just trying to quickly get the information he/she needs, as it still would require substantial skimming that could be avoided by a simple infobox. I do however agree that the necessity of an infobox would be less if the age of death and place would be included in the lead. --Simen113 (talk) 06:57, 10 October 2017 (UTC)
(oh dear, another comment from me:) an infobox is NEVER a necessity, it is always an offer to readers who may have other needs (detailed in the quote) than reading prose. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 07:49, 10 October 2017 (UTC)
It always seems to be a necessity when you're around. Simen113, thank you for discussing this in the way that you have. A lot of the time these discussions can descend into complete madness. But you're ability to at least see the other side of the argument separates you from the kind of people who battle, constantly, to enforce their POV onto every article in the name of consistency. I'll not reply here again so I wish you both well. CassiantoTalk 08:01, 10 October 2017 (UTC)
I believe every argument ought to be civil, especially on this project, for the betterment of not just Wikipedia, but the world itself. Wish you well, as well. Have a nice day!--Simen113 (talk) 08:39, 10 October 2017 (UTC)
(travelling, see this only now) Thank you, Cassianto, for the word "seems", because I wonder why this is so. When I create an infobox and don't know the authors of an article, I add an edit summary "try ibox", stress on "try". When it's reverted, I usually don't say a word. I don't recall to ever have used "necessary", - for me, it's just the normal thing to do. I translated an article today, and of course added an infobox. - So, Cassianto, could you please check your premises? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 21:36, 10 October 2017 (UTC)

Thank you for quality articles such as Kygo, Aurora (singer), Lydia Dan, Romanov Tercentenary and I kveld med YLVIS, saying "I felt someone should make this article.", for quoting "everyone has points of view with inherent cultural biases", - history buff, you are an awesome Wikipedian!

--Gerda Arendt (talk) 21:53, 10 October 2017 (UTC)

Wow thanks Gerda! I really appreciate it this honoring recognition of some of my efforts. I often try to find out "what does Wikipedia NOT have that it should have?", something that is either interesting and forgotten, or well-known and lacking an article as of yet, both to get the ball rolling for everyone in the community. Hope you have a great day :)--Simen113 (talk) 08:19, 11 October 2017 (UTC)
Thank you! Yes, great day on a short trip to a wonderful town, waiting for drizzle to stop. - I do the same, trying to fill a red link a day, at least when I'm not on vacation. How do you like Von guten Mächten (one of them)? I have a peer review open (not "my" article, just something I'd like to see in better shape). Even if you don't care about the topic, you might have an view about the lead image and/or its placement. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 08:47, 11 October 2017 (UTC)
Hope you experience fine autumn weather in Estonia! As to my input on the articles, which one do you want feedback on? Von guten Mächten or Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott?--Simen113 (talk) 13:19, 11 October 2017 (UTC)
Feste Burg, - peer view open, top of the talk page, --Gerda Arendt (talk) 15:36, 11 October 2017 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help.

DYK for TV-aksjonen[edit]

Updated DYK query.svgOn 3 December 2017, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article TV-aksjonen, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that during the annual TV-aksjonen ("TV campaign"), more than 100,000 volunteers go door-to-door to all 1.8 million Norwegian households to collect donations for a charity? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/TV-aksjonen. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, TV-aksjonen), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000.

Magellan–Elcano circumnavigation[edit]

Hello Simen
I have just been fixing the mis-named 'Magellan–Elcano circumnavigation' article, which I have now moved back to its original listing as a timeline (see here). You mentioned a while ago that you were working on a prose article on the expedition; how is that going? I've noted that we already have two prose articles on the subject; perhaps you could add whatever material you have collected to them. Regards, Moonraker12 (talk) 14:02, 12 August 2018 (UTC)

Lydia Dan and Yury Larin[edit]

Hi Simen113, you edited in the articles on Lydia Dan and Yury Larin, that the former was the latter’s godmother. I wondered what it might mean considering they were around the same age and, as far as I can guess, neither was likely to be religious. So, I’ve found in the source you cited (Liebich, André (1997). From the Other Shore: Russian Social Democracy After 1921, vol. 5. Cambridge, Massachusetts & London, England: Harvard University Press. p. 234) and especially in the note 38, p. 408, that it had just been an “incongruous baptism … undertaken in a tsarist prison so that Larin could have an Orthodox marriage entitling him to take his bride into exile”. If this is the case, to simply state Lydia Dan “was the godmother of Yuri Larin” seems quite misleading to me, and such information should either be preferably removed or otherwise shifted to a footnote or elsewhere in the article with due detail about the incongruousness of the baptism.

I wonder if you would be so kind as to take a look at the matter and possibly bring it to an issue yourself. Cheers.--Jeanambr (talk) 10:33, 28 March 2019 (UTC)
