iam joe halenbeck[edit]

im confused as to why you didnt allow the page i asked to publish as its a real person with real eye witness accounts as well as proof and videos online not just youtube real intervews with people as well as twitter verification and google and he was in the local papers of his home town in scotland ? but yet hes not given a page. yes u had more to add to the page and update it at a later date but it was a start..

yet just last day i seen some girl on twitter who works at fucking tesco she pays for a modeling shoot and get some pictures taken unpublished and shes on wikipedia ?? i take it cause shes a woman and has tits or the person who wrote it also works with wiki as her bio was her name place of birth and nothing else not a single fact about her or picture just that she was a "model' lol and there are plenty of these empty fake pages yet not a real one like this ?? i can see like any company cheats will let friends on its not what you know its who you know— Preceding unsigned comment added by Iamjoehalenbeck (talkcontribs)

You are perfectly free to submit your draft for submission using the button provided at the top of User:Iamjoehalenbeck/Joe_Halenbeck. However, the draft is unacceptable in its current state because you have not included any citations. A citation is not simply writing "a magazine interview". You have to give enough information for someone to actually find exactly where the content is sourced. That means title, date, author, publication (and if it's on the internet, the web address). And it has to be something independent of the subject. A Google search is not a source. Someone's twitter account is not a source. An interview is not a good source. To put it bluntly, Wikipedia does not care what you have to say about yourself; Wikipedia only cares what other people have said about you in reliable publications (i.e. magazines, newspapers, and similar digital sources - not social media). Ultimately, you should not be writing about yourself on Wikipedia. It rarely works out well. Someguy1221 (talk) 04:31, 22 June 2014 (UTC)

Aldota sockpuppet accounts[edit]

Hi, I can see you added tags to some of the user pages on blocked sockpuppet accounts from Category:Wikipedia sockpuppets of Aldota. However, it would appear that one-by-one throwaway IPs are vandalising these user pages by removing or amending the tags so the account no longer appears in the category.

I have restored all the tags on all the account I have found, however, you may wish to add the userpages to your watchlist to monitor any potential future vandalism or protect the pages, thanks take care. Tanbircdq (talk) 21:25, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

Suspected banned user edits[edit]

Hi Some, User:Klaus_Barner was banned a year ago over inappropriate edits at adequality. Recently an IP has been deleting properly sourced material there, which is the same material the banned user attempted to delete before being banned.

Copyright checks when performing AfC reviews[edit]

Hello Someguy1221. This message is part of a mass mailing to people who appear active in reviewing articles for creation submissions. First of all, thank you for taking part in this important work! I'm sorry this message is a form letter – it really was the only way I could think of to covey the issue economically. Of course, this also means that I have not looked to see whether the matter is applicable to you in particular.

The issue is in rather large numbers of copyright violations ("copyvios") making their way through AfC reviews without being detected (even when easy to check, and even when hallmarks of copyvios in the text that should have invited a check, were glaring). A second issue is the correct method of dealing with them when discovered.

If you don't do so already, I'd like to ask for your to help with this problem by taking on the practice of performing a copyvio check as the first step in any AfC review. The most basic method is to simply copy a unique but small portion of text from the draft body and run it through a search engine in quotation marks. Trying this from two different paragraphs is recommended. (If you have any question about whether the text was copied from the draft, rather than the other way around (a "backwards copyvio"), the Wayback Machine is very useful for sussing that out.)

If you do find a copyright violation, please do not decline the draft on that basis. Copyright violations need to be dealt with immediately as they may harm those whose content is being used and expose Wikipedia to potential legal liability. If the draft is substantially a copyvio, and there's no non-infringing version to revert to, please mark the page for speedy deletion right away using {{db-g12|url=URL of source}}. If there is an assertion of permission, please replace the draft article's content with {{subst:copyvio|url=URL of source}}.

Some of the more obvious indicia of a copyvio are use of the first person ("we/our/us..."), phrases like "this site", or apparent artifacts of content written for somewhere else ("top", "go to top", "next page", "click here", use of smartquotes, etc.); inappropriate tone of voice, such as an overly informal tone or a very slanted marketing voice with weasel words; including intellectual property symbols (™,®); and blocks of text being added all at once in a finished form with no misspellings or other errors.

I hope this message finds you well and thanks again you for your efforts in this area. Best regards--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 02:20, 18 November 2014 (UTC).

Question on LGBT Issues in NK[edit]

This section seems pretty baised/poorly written, but before i erased it, I'd like your opinion. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Manofgun (talkcontribs) 00:11, 28 May 2015 (UTC)

I would delete it. It's clearly just one random person's opinion. Someguy1221 (talk) 00:14, 28 May 2015 (UTC)

SPI clerks[edit]

Hey Someguy, would it be okay if I move you back to an active clerk? You're certainly acting like one (Face-smile.svg), and it's much appreciated.--Bbb23 (talk) 04:38, 4 June 2015 (UTC)

Sure! Go right ahead. I plan to stick around for a while. Someguy1221 (talk) 22:26, 4 June 2015 (UTC)

Glaring error[edit]

I wanted to point out a glaring error on your User page. You have the title, "Why there are hard and fast rules". However, it says in WP:PG that "[...] Wikipedia does not employ hard-and-fast rules [...]". Hope that helps. Kookiethebird (talk) 23:50, 4 July 2015 (UTC)

Curious. The essay on my userpage is actually older than the wording of that policy. It's also more accurate than that policy, so I'll leave it as is. Someguy1221 (talk) 18:28, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

I don't know what the edit filter you (Someguy1221) referred to is looking for, but perhaps the misspelled editor's name "Ediablehulk" might be a useful addition. Or else the concatenation of editors' names that seem to reappear in all of these posts.

Fun userboxes[edit]

I really like your humorous userboxes based on various insults/comments. I made a few myself, shown below. Any idea where I could find some more good ones? GABHello! 02:11, 8 August 2015 (UTC)

Hey GAB. I made those userboxes myself, so I wouldn't know where to tell you to find more. Though yours look good. Reminds me that I haven't gotten any insults lately worthy of becoming a userbox. I have to work on that :) Someguy1221 (talk) 04:54, 9 August 2015 (UTC)


Thank you for cleaning up one half of the mess of the long-standing Fnagaton/Glider87 saga. I would like to urge you to also block Fnagaton permanently as per my comments on Wikipedia:Sockpuppet_investigations/Fnagaton, or get other check users involved to permanently eradicate the behavior of their common master, who has been doing this sort of thing for a long time. Kbrose (talk) 12:46, 9 August 2015 (UTC)

I don't feel right unilaterally raising the block to indef, but I'm open to an AN or ANI discussion regarding a community ban. Someguy1221 (talk) 18:37, 9 August 2015 (UTC)

Blocking and Deleting of Cyphoidbob-omb[edit]

I noticed that you blocked User:Cyphoidbob-omb just as I nominated him for a block on Admin. Intervention against vandalism. And I believe that an indef block wouldnt be a problem with all the themes at play but I do not think that it was right to delete the user and the page. I feel they have the right to an appeal and to reform. Now they are probably just going to come back as a angrier vandal, as they suggested sockpuppetry. If possible, I think it would be a good idea to restore the user and keep the block in place. Thanks. Wikipenguin 8 (talk) 07:41, 11 August 2015 (UTC)

Based on the behavior, Cyphoidbob-omb is without doubt already a sockpuppet of blocked or banned user. Since he may have been looking for attention, I chose to deny him that attention. Someguy1221 (talk) 07:46, 11 August 2015 (UTC)

Quality of Billy Meier entry[edit]

Hello Someguy, can you explain to us what makes Ms. Kalliope Meier-Zafiriou a valuable and trustworthy source for you? And what exactly makes her acclaimed newer testimonies (with intensive putting of words in her mouth by Luc Bürgin) standing out from those of 100+ other persons, which are identified and can be talked to?

What a remarkable viewpoint on the importance of books as source and evidence. After somebody else affording the money to publish the same 499 pages book with its collection of written testimonies you would thus suddenly rate it as a valuable source? Is that objectivity for the Billy Meier article? Zutt (talk) 03:33, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Thank you very much for your guidance on how to get Wikipedia’s editors granting “reliability” status for sources. Am going to try that mechanism. I realize now that you are genuinely motivated to further evolve and improve the Billy Meier article. We share a common interest. The whole thing reminds me of the article from 14th August 2015, concerning controversial topics in Wikipedia. One has in that context to wonder, how an article for the man who was supposedly called Jesus could ever happen, considering that the reliability of each and every source is obviously as good as zero. Zutt (talk) 04:53, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

On the Jesus article. I see, this is all about the worshipping cult, not about life and facts for a real person. But then the topic and title should be corrected to read “Christianity” or “Worshipping of Jesus Christ”. Otherwise the reader is misled, thinking to learn something objective about a historical figure. Zutt (talk) 06:35, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Invitation to subscribe to the edit filter mailing list[edit]

Hi, as a user in the edit filter manager user group we wanted to let you know about the new wikipedia-en-editfilters mailing list. As part of our recent efforts to improve the use of edit filters on the English Wikipedia it has been established as a venue for internal discussion by edit filter managers regarding private filters (those only viewable by administrators and edit filter managers) and also as a means by which non-admins can ask questions about hidden filters that wouldn't be appropriate to discuss on-wiki. As an edit filter manager we encourage you to subscribe; the more users we have in the mailing list the more useful it will be to the community. If you subscribe we will send a short email to you through Wikipedia to confirm your subscription, but let us know if you'd prefer another method of verification. I'd also like to take the opportunity to invite you to contribute to the proposed guideline for edit filter use at WP:Edit filter/Draft and the associated talk page. Thank you!

Please sign new Wikimedia confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information by 15 December[edit]

This is a message from the Wikimedia Foundation. Translations are available.

Wmf logo vert pms.svg

As you may know, the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees approved a new "Access to nonpublic information policy" on 25 April 2014 after a community consultation. The former policy has remained in place until the new policy could be implemented. That implementation work is now being done, and we are beginning the transition to the new policy.

An important part of that transition is helping volunteers like you sign the required confidentiality agreement. All Wikimedia volunteers with access to nonpublic information are required to sign this new agreement, and we have prepared some documentation to help you do so.

The Wikimedia Foundation is requiring that anyone with access to nonpublic information sign the new confidentiality agreement by 15 December 2015 (OTRS users have until 22 December 2015) to retain their access. You are receiving this email because you have access to nonpublic information and are required to sign the confidentiality agreement under the new policy.

Signing the confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information is conducted and tracked using Legalpad on Phabricator. The general confidentiality agreement is now ready, and the OTRS agreement will be ready after 22 September 2015. We have prepared a guide on Meta-Wiki to help you create your Phabricator account and sign the new agreement: Confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information/How to sign

If you have any questions or experience any problems while signing the new agreement, please visit this talk page or email me ( Again, please sign this confidentiality agreement by 15 December 2015 (OTRS users have until 22 December 2015) to retain your access to nonpublic information. If you do not wish to retain this access, please let me know and we will forward your request to the appropriate individuals.

Thank you,

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
