Invitation from Wikipedia Asian Month 2016[edit]

Thanks for partipating Wikipedia Asian Month last year, and I hope you enjoy it. Last year, more than 7,000 articles contribute to Wikipedia in 43 languages in Wikipedia Asian Month, making us one of the largest event on Wikipedia. We will organize this event again in upcoming November, and would like to invite you join us again.

This year, we are lowering down the standards that you only need to create 4 (Four) articles to receive a postcard (new design), and articles only need to be more than 3,000 bytes and 300 words. We are also improving our postcard sending process, e.g. making the postcards right now, and collecting the address after the event ends without waiting other languges.

Wikipedians who create the most articles on each Wikipedia will be honored as "Wikipedia Asian Ambassadors". We will send you both digital copy, and a paper copy of the Ambassador certificate.

Thank you for considering! --AddisWang (talk)

2016–17 Futures League[edit]

Hi St A. Following on from this AfD, the same user has created this article. I'd appreciate your thoughts on if you think this is notable or not. I don't see it being notable myself, as none of the matches are FC status, but it could scrape the WP:GNG. If you don't think it is notable, I'm happy to take it to AfD. Thanks. Lugnuts Precious bodily fluids 07:06, 25 October 2016 (UTC)

I don't think so - I imagine the only coverage is routine - scores, etc. I do find it very interesting though - I like to keep track of how the fringe players are doing. (Especially Jordan Silk, whose article I created.) Anyway, I'm pretty sure I'd vote delete in an AfD. It's probably like Victorian Premier Cricket - the league is definitely notable, but we don't have articles for individual seasons. StAnselm (talk) 07:42, 25 October 2016 (UTC)

Merge of Acacia (Vachellia) into Vachellia[edit]

Hi StAnselm. You inserted the merge tag of these pages, but you did not create the merge discussion. There is substantial discussion on the talk page, but editors are not addressing and focussing on the merge proposal per se, as there no such section on the page (presening the justification). I would gladly create such a section, but thought I would rather first let you know. Regards. Rui ''Gabriel'' Correia (talk) 13:46, 26 October 2016 (UTC)

Yes, the page was moved with a future merge in mind, and I see that (rather unfocused) discussion happened at Talk:Vachellia#Acacia. Yes, if you would like to create a formal merge discussion, I would appreciate it. Thanks. StAnselm (talk) 18:17, 26 October 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for the prompt response. Shall do so. Regards, Rui ''Gabriel'' Correia (talk) 19:51, 26 October 2016 (UTC)

Nomination of Bill Clinton haircut controversy for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Bill Clinton haircut controversy is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Bill Clinton haircut controversy (2nd nomination) until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Drmies (talk) 18:30, 26 October 2016 (UTC)

New Page Reviewer granted[edit]

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Hello StAnselm. Your account has been added to the "New page reviewers" user group, allowing you to review new pages and mark them as patrolled, tag them for maintenance issues, or in some cases, tag them for deletion. The list of articles awaiting review is located at the New Pages Feed. New page reviewing is a vital function for policing the quality of the encylopedia, if you have not already done so, you must read the new tutorial at New Pages Review, the linked guides and essays, and fully understand the various deletion criteria.

  • Be nice to new users - they are often not aware of doing anything wrong.
  • You will frequently be asked by users to explain why their page is being deleted - be formal and polite in your approach to them too, even if they are not.
  • Don't review a page if you are not sure what to do. Just leave it for another reviewer.
  • Remember that quality is quintessential to good patrolling. Take your time to patrol each article, there is no rush. Use the message feature and offer basic advice.

The reviewer right does not change your status or how you can edit articles. If you no longer want this user right, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. In case of abuse or persistent inaccuracy of reviewing, the right can be revoked at any time by an administrator.

Pictogram voting info.svg Administrator note: You have been grandfathered to this group based on prior patrolling activity - the technical flag for the group will be added to your account after the next software update. You do not need to apply at WP:PERM. 20:56, 28 October 2016 (UTC)

Stacey Dash[edit]

Just a cordial note to warn that you are edit-warring at Stacey Dash. Per WP:BRD, after being reverted we go to the talk page to discuss the issue and try to reach consensus with other editors. --Tenebrae (talk) 18:51, 11 November 2016 (UTC)

That's not edit-warring - I made a significant change to address your "promotional" concerns. StAnselm (talk) 18:53, 11 November 2016 (UTC)
It's edit-warring. I've begun a discussion at Talk:Stacey Dash#Patheos. --Tenebrae (talk) 18:56, 11 November 2016 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Florida Christian School logo.png[edit]

RfC[edit]

StAnselm Thanks for the heads-up, but I'm taking a break from the Bannon article; however I think you should consider posting this quote in the RfC for due consideration: 'Pastrana told NBC News there was nothing obvious in Bannon's voter record that suggested fraud to her, especially since he had not voted in Miami-Dade since registering there in April 2014. "There is nothing here that I see that he did wrong," she said.' Makes it obvious that the issue is a complete nothing-burger. NPalgan2 (talk) 19:34, 17 November 2016 (UTC)

New Page Review - newsletter[edit]

Hello StAnselm,
Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg
Breaking the back of the backlog
We now have 329 New Page Reviewers! Most of you requested the user right to be able to do something about the huge backlog. Now it's time for action.
Mid July to 01 Oct 2016

If each reviewer does only 10 reviews a day over five days, the backlog will be down to zero and the daily input can then be processed by each reviewer doing only 2 or 3 reviews a day - that's about 5 minutes work!
Let's get that over and done with in time to relax for the holidays.

Second set of eyes

Not only are New Page Reviewers the guardians of quality of new articles, they are also in a position to ensure that pages are being correctly tagged for deletion and maintenance and that new authors are not being bitten. This is an important feature of your work. Read about it at the new Monitoring the system section in the tutorial.

Speedy deletion nomination of Mary Elise Hayden[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Mary Elise Hayden, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G4 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page appears to be a repost of material that was previously deleted following a deletion debate, such as at articles for deletion. Under the specified criteria, where a page has substantially identical content to that of a page deleted after debate, and any changes in the content do not address the reasons for which the material was previously deleted, it may be deleted at any time.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here. ThePlatypusofDoom (talk) 01:19, 16 December 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for thanking my edit, unfortunately it was reverted, as well as being reverted on multiple articles as well by the same editor. There's a discussion about it here if you'd consider giving your opinion. Drsmoo (talk) 23:15, 19 December 2016 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of HTW[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on HTW requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about web content, but it does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator. SorryNotSorry 09:50, 23 December 2016 (UTC)

Notable residents[edit]

Hello StAnselm, you changed (article Rathenow) the heading from Sons and daughters of the town to Notable residents, although all the people were born in Rathenow. So I think sons and daughters is the better heading. Regards--Buchbibliothek (talk) 09:51, 26 December 2016 (UTC)

I hope you don't mind that I've moved Hannah Marshall to draft space as per my edit summary. Schwede66 23:27, 4 January 2017 (UTC)

Yes, I do mind, actually - significant roles in two TV shows means the subject passes WP:NACTOR #1. Add stub tags if you need to, but there is nothing wrong with having a stub like this in mainspace. StAnselm (talk) 23:41, 4 January 2017 (UTC)

On Hammoth-Dor[edit]

Hello, St. Anselm. If I am reading the edit history correctly, back in September you put a "clarification needed" tag on on the article Hammoth-Dor. I've cleaned up the relevant sentence. I'm wondering if you now consider it clear enough for me to remove the clarification needed tag. I would do it myself, but I figured since you put it there first, I'd check with you.Alephb (talk) 11:02, 10 January 2017 (UTC)
