Request for comment[edit]

Hello there, a proposal regarding pre-adminship review has been raised at Village pump by Anna Frodesiak. Your comments here is very much appreciated. Many thanks.

Disambiguation link notification for October 19[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Sofia Samatar, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Somali. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Marcus Louis article[edit]

Why did you state that this article is not eligible to be deleted by CSD:G4 since it was deleted at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Marcus Louis less than two weeks ago? Papaursa (talk) 20:18, 12 October 2015 (UTC)

The article in its current state appears to meet notability standards. As such it no longer meets the criteria for speedy delete.--SouthernNights (talk) 23:24, 13 October 2015 (UTC)
So it is significantly different from the previously deleted article? Papaursa (talk) 02:48, 14 October 2015 (UTC)

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.

Lumeta Corporation[edit]

Hello, I am trying to remedy the reasons why the Lumeta Corporation page was deleted from Wikipedia 2 February 2014. (Likely, a previous co-worker changed the content to cause the deletion in the first place, so I am trying to put up content that will fit within Wikipedia's guidelines.) Thank you in advance for pointing me in the right direction to fix this.

The article was blatant advertising which didn't explain why the company meets Wikipedia notability guidelines. I checked both the last version of the article and previous versions and this lack of notability and focus on advertising the company held up. --SouthernNights (talk) 18:58, 26 November 2015 (UTC)

Recently Deleted Page[edit]

Hi, My unfinished page, Forbidden Haunted House, was deleted because it was "advertising something". I disagree with this, and would like to finish editing my page and remove something that may seem like advertising. Besides, the attraction I'm writing about closed permanently in October, and I don't think that you can advertise something that no longer exists. Thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by GraceyManorVA (talkcontribs) 15:03, 20 December 2015 (UTC)

Advertising wasn't the only issue b/c the article also lacked credible sources showing the subject's notability. See Wikipedia:Notability for more on this. Unless your article doesn't read as advertising and also meets notability guidelines it will likely be deleted again. But if you think the subject can be fixed and is notable with credible sources, by all means re-create the article.--SouthernNights (talk) 15:23, 20 December 2015 (UTC)
So there is no way for you to restore the page and I have to start all over? — Preceding unsigned comment added by GraceyManorVA (talkcontribs) 15:45, 20 December 2015 (UTC)

Lost edit history for Zuism (religion)[edit]

Hi. Because of the way that content was copy-pasted from Zuism (religion) to Zuism, your deletion of the former wipes out the revision history behind the content now included in the latter. For that reason, shouldn't you either let Zuism (religion) live, or else merge its revision history into that of the remaining article? —Largo Plazo (talk) 15:42, 20 December 2015 (UTC)

I undid the deletion. From the speedy delete tag and associated info it appeared this was a routine housekeeping deletion. Since it's not I undeleted the article. I don't know why someone didn't simply move the article in the first place, which would have transferred both the article and the history. But now that the new article has been created the simplest thing to do is leave the redirect. --SouthernNights (talk) 16:56, 20 December 2015 (UTC)
Agreed. I intended to move it myself when noticing the unnecessary disambiguator in the title, but then discovered that Zuism was already occupied. As it was only a redirect at the time, I figure I could do a G6 myself followed by a move, or use submitted a move request, but I noticed that Talk:Zuism was occupied, and I thought there might be some merit to preserving the substantive discussion that had been there. That's why I went with a merge proposal. But then someone else did the copy-paste. Anyway, just now, I confirmed a hunch that an appropriate template exists in the form of {{r from merge}} advising the reader that, indeed, the page should be left in place to preserve its history after its content was moved elsewhere. —Largo Plazo (talk) 17:17, 20 December 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for pointing all this out. I try to be careful with speedy deletes but sometimes I miss stuff. Best, --SouthernNights (talk) 17:26, 20 December 2015 (UTC)
Oh, I know! No criticism intended! Ciao. —Largo Plazo (talk) 17:33, 20 December 2015 (UTC)

Her Honor, Nancy James[edit]

I appreciate your note about my article on Her Honor, Nancy James. I was not familiar with the program, either. I discovered it while I did research on Barbara Weeks. After I completed the article about her, I used material that I had found during that process to create the article about the program. Thanks for your interest. Eddie Blick (talk) 22:43, 20 December 2015 (UTC)


Appreciate your comment for the Battles of idar. i have also made more articles about the wars fought by Rana Sanga and some other Indian personalities. Please do check them if your interested in Indian history. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Divyraj (talkcontribs) 15:46, 26 December 2015 (UTC)

Andries Schoemaker[edit]

Hi, SouthernNights, I noticed your deletion, does this mean the text in Category:Atlas Schoemaker is a copyright infringement? Strange it has not been removed there. Thank you for your time. Lotje (talk) 14:47, 27 December 2015 (UTC)

I'll respond on your talk page.--SouthernNights (talk) 14:49, 27 December 2015 (UTC)

Thomas Dahlia notability template[edit]

Hello, SouthernNights. Does it look like Thomas Dahlia meets notability now? (talk) 00:24, 2 January 2016 (UTC)

The article is improved but I still don't think the subject meets our notability guidelines. For more on these sports notability guidelines, go here. Best, --SouthernNights (talk) 00:28, 2 January 2016 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Thank you for your comment, it is much appreciated. I am working on improving the coverage of football in Suriname at the moment. Thank you for your review. Best regards, (Subzzee (talk) 13:50, 10 January 2016 (UTC))

Re: Happy New Year[edit]

Hey, hey my friend it is so nice to hear from you. A Happy belated New Year to you also. May this year be filled with blessings for you and your loved ones. Hey, did I tell you that I was featured in a documentary that aired throughout the United States via PBS on September 22? The documentary is titled "On Two Fronts: Latinos in Vietnam". Just in case you want to check it out, you can see it here: [[1]]. Take care. Tony the Marine (talk) 23:28, 16 January 2016 (UTC)

I heard of the documentary but haven't seen it yet. I'll check it out.--SouthernNights (talk) 01:52, 17 January 2016 (UTC)

why did you deleted najeh rosario[edit]

he deleted it Downsclank (talk) 05:19, 17 January 2016 (UTC)

I deleted Najeh Rosario because the subject wasn't notable, per Wikipedia's notability guidelines. I suggest you read up on those guidelines. In addition, if you post insults on the site again you're likely to be blocked, so I suggest you keep your conversations civil.--SouthernNights (talk) 12:22, 17 January 2016 (UTC)
