They do not meet WP:BAND or WP:GNG

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Boleyn (talk) 20:36, 7 February 2016 (UTC)

No objection. I split the article from Gaberlunzie years ago only because the info didn't belong in that article. Station1 (talk) 20:44, 7 February 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for July 26[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Capital Games, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Santa Fe. 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.

Hi! I need help writing my "The Grid District" page. I don't know what exactly is advertisement and I'm not sure about "reliable links" because i felt news articles were. thank you in advance. Oliviag220 (talk) 19:41, 22 September 2016 (UTC)

A cookie for you![edit]

Choco chip cookie.png Thank you for answering my palpableonal question (and editing) in the James Baldwin article! It was the first Wikipedia comment of my life and I´m blown away by the fact that there was a reaction to it!! :-)))) Because I´m not English native I wasn´t aware of the obviuos "palpable" and it was the first time I didn´t find a word on google or anywhere else except in this article;

However, I must seem like an idiot to you but anyway I´ll say THANK YOU!! for your reply :-) Palpableone (talk) 08:07, 1 March 2017 (UTC)

Ways to improve George Dewey Washington[edit]

Hi, I'm Teblick. Station1, thanks for creating George Dewey Washington!

I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix. You have made a good start with this article. I had not heard of George Dewey Washington before I reviewed your article, but he sounds quite interesting. Please check your talk page to see a link to some articles that might provide additional information. I don't know whether they will be useful, but it won't hurt to look.

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse.

Emily Warren[edit]

Hi Station1 - thanks for your comments on the "Emily Warren" situation. I've moved "Emily Warren" to "Emily Warren (artist)" and am trying to move "Emily Warren (songwriter)" to "Emily Warren" but am having some difficulty doing so, would you be able to help?

Many thanks, Guyb123321 (talk) 19:33, 19 April 2017 (UTC)

  • Sorry, but I can't, for two reasons. First, an administrator would have to do the page move; non-admins do not have the technical capability in cases like this. Secondly, as the proposer and a participant in the move discussion, respectively, neither you nor I should make such a move; the decision is left to an uninvolved third party, usually an administrator and usually after at least 7 days have passed. Actually, you should really not have moved the artist's page yourself, either. Be patient for a few more days, and someone will come along and take care of both situations. Station1 (talk) 00:19, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

Autopatrolled granted[edit]

Wikipedia Autopatrolled.svg

Hi Station1, I just wanted to let you know that I have added the "autopatrolled" permission to your account, as you have created numerous, valid articles. This feature will have no effect on your editing, and is simply intended to reduce the workload on new page patrollers. For more information on the patroller right, see Wikipedia:Autopatrolled. Feel free to leave me a message if you have any questions. Happy editing! MusikAnimal talk 02:17, 11 May 2017 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Pygmy[edit]

Hello Station1. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Pygmy, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: Not done. Discuss at Talk:Pygmy peoples, please. Thank you. Shirt58 (talk) 08:07, 20 May 2017 (UTC)

Ooh, harsh default text added by the CSDH script. Any WP:AGF fault is entirely mine, as I used the script knowing what it what it would produce. This would probably be better as an entry at Wikipedia:Requested moves. I have started a discussion here. Pete AU aka --Shirt58 (talk) 09:10, 20 May 2017 (UTC)
No problem at all. This was just meant as housekeeping to reverse a redirect that had always pointed to the same article, originally at that title, per WP:PRECISE. But if you think there may be anything at all controversial about it, the current setup works fine. Not worth a discussion IMO. Station1 (talk) 17:11, 20 May 2017 (UTC)

Contested move request[edit]

Could your please withdraw your opposition to Talk:Keyboard layout/chart? JCUKEN refers to the Latin-script layout. There was Latinisation in the Soviet Union and JCUKEN was officially Latin. The page intro states "This is a chart of alternative keyboard layouts for typing Latin characters". 77.180.202.125 (talk) 09:06, 13 June 2017 (UTC)

OK. I did not actually oppose the move. I agree with you that a move is required. The only problem was that there was a link to JCUKEN, which article clearly says it's a Cyrillic keyboard, so I suggested a modification. I now see that there is a JCUKEN (Latin) keyboard, so I just unlinked JCUKEN from the article and moved it. I hope that takes care of the problem. Station1 (talk) 17:46, 13 June 2017 (UTC)

Advice[edit]

Good afternoon. I hope I'm not imposing on you, but I could do with some advice. I'm looking to improve 1.FK Nová Paka and was wondering if you knew of any good sports results/stats sites that could provide me with more info. Thanks in advance. LampGenie01 (talk) 17:20, 17 July 2017 (UTC)

Not an imposition at all. I'm happy to help any way I can. I'm afraid sports stats is not my area of expertise, however. You could try looking at similar but more developed articles to see what sources they use (check the categories on the bottom of the article for similar articles.) There's also Wikipedia:WikiProject Sports; you could try asking the question on the talk page there. It looks moderately active, so someone there may have a better answer. Sorry can't be of more help. Station1 (talk) 18:15, 17 July 2017 (UTC)
Just noticed there's also Wikipedia:WikiProject Football, which has an even more active talk page. Station1 (talk) 18:21, 17 July 2017 (UTC)

Rcat(s) on Amazon.com[edit]

Consider this the "D" of BRD: I apologize for not reading the target article Amazon (company) first; I had mistakenly thought that the reason for the move was that "Amazon.com" was no longer accepted as an official company name.

However, there must be some other redirect category we can add. The admittedly vague {{R from alternative name}} is the only one that seems obviously suitable; would you object to that? Do you have any guidance on whether this should be printworthy (probably not) or unprintworthy (maybe)? If the latter, perhaps {{R from other disambiguation}} or {{R from incorrect disambiguation}} would be better. --SoledadKabocha (talk) 05:46, 10 November 2017 (UTC)

No apology necessary. What you did was perfectly reasonable. I agree {{R from alternative name}} would be suitable. My inclination is that it is probably printworthy, because it still is the company's legal name as well as a reasonably common name that some people might look for, rather than "Amazon (company)". In fact, that's why I reverted. But I don't feel especially strongly about it one way or the other. Station1 (talk) 16:26, 10 November 2017 (UTC)

Federal Public Sector Labour Relations and Employment Board[edit]

Hey. You moved the page Public Service Staff Relations Board to the above mentioned one. That's all fine and all except for one thing. Instead of Sector it was supposed to be Service. Could you amend as appropriately? Thanks. --110.93.236.75 (talk) 06:03, 22 November 2017 (UTC)

It says "Sector" on the website you provided. Are you sure it should be "Service"? Station1 (talk) 06:06, 22 November 2017 (UTC)
Oh, sorry. I just checked again. It is Sector, not Service. --110.93.236.75 (talk) 06:08, 22 November 2017 (UTC)
No problem. Station1 (talk) 06:08, 22 November 2017 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for May 12[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited Louis Bennett (politician), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Mount Carmel Cemetery (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are usually incorrect, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of unrelated topics with similar titles. (Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.)

Pensativa[edit]

I assume that you are either going to find a source for that information or remove the dead link template. Right?
Vmavanti (talk) 01:30, 16 August 2018 (UTC)

Hi. I assume you're talking about Perdido (song). The source is Basilio Serrano, "Juan Tizol: His talents, his collaborators, his legacy", Centro Journal 18(2): 83–99 (2006). If you prefer to unlink it, rather than leave the dead link template, that's fine. But a source is valid whether it's on line or not. There's a guideline about that somewhere.

CIA/Army names[edit]

courthouse article moves disputed[edit]

Hi, please don't move any NRHP-listed or other courthouses on the issue of (City, State) vs. (State) disambiguation; please consider these disputed by me (and I think others); it should require a wider consensus. There are definitely two sides. There has been a de facto peace with respect to these, that neither side is making moves, pending some super-big wonderful RFC or other consensus-creating process, which might or might not ever happen. I think you are aware of this but I could refresh you about the history.

I noticed a short while ago that you moved one courthouse page but that it was a page I myself had moved about a year or two ago, so I was going to let it go, as effectively undoing my own move. But just now I saw you moved Williamson County Courthouse (Franklin, Tennessee), which had been created at that name and had never moved. I returned it. Could you please undo any other recent moves, and not make any new ones.

I would be willing to do the big RFC battle if now is when it absolutely must happen. Otherwise, please abide by the peace.

Unrelatedly, I think I noticed we have been agreeing with each other in some AFDs recently, by the way. --Doncram (talk) 01:29, 3 September 2018 (UTC)

I'm delighted that we've been agreeing. Let's do it all the time! Re the courthouses, I do remember the history. There were 2 or 3 discussions on your talk page last year I think, asking you not to make those moves, as well as Talk:Douglas County Courthouse (Wisconsin) and Wikipedia talk:Naming conventions (geographic names)#What are, or should be, the disambiguation guidelines for buildings, since archived, as well as discussions elsewhere about USPLACE not applying to qualifiers. The consensus is that just the state is needed for county courthouses because the location is already specified in the name. The policy is WP:PRECISE and WP:CONCISE. There's further evidence in that the large majority of editors title their articles that way when they create them. When you change them to the longer title despite being asked not to, it's appropriate to restore them to the previous title. I didn't notice you created Williamson County Courthouse (Franklin, Tennessee) (although I should have guessed), but I do agree that when articles you create are boldly moved by me or anyone, you are certainly within your rights to revert those moves, and I will not move those again without a WP:RM proposal. Station1 (talk) 05:26, 3 September 2018 (UTC)

Page move[edit]

Hi Station, Can you tell me how you were able to get this edit summary made. I also help at the WP:RMT but I have to manually type the edit summary. --DBigXray 09:48, 5 September 2018 (UTC)

Just as an example from today,
"Lauren Esposito (scientist) → Lauren Esposito (move · discuss) – disambiguation not needed. Coderzombie (talk) 05:28, 6 September 2018 (UTC)"
When you click the word "move", that type of edit summary should pop up automatically in the Reason field. If you move the article manually, however, you have to type an edit summary in the Reason box. Station1 (talk) 07:10, 6 September 2018 (UTC)
I really appreciate your kind and detailed reply. Clicking this makes this error message. so you just copy the edit summary and post it on the Swap tool or am I missing something ? regards. --DBigXray 10:30, 6 September 2018 (UTC)
I only move pages that any autoconfirmed editor can move, so I'm not familiar with the Swap tool, but yes, it sounds like you could probably do that. Station1 (talk) 15:47, 6 September 2018 (UTC)
Ok, thank you. Wish you a great day/night ahead. --DBigXray 16:09, 6 September 2018 (UTC)

Reptilians[edit]

Thank you for the help; I don't often use the WP:RM process, so I had absolutely no idea that anything would break. One of those odd situations in which not edit or delete others' posts without their permission has to be ignored :-) Nyttend (talk) 12:00, 14 October 2018 (UTC)
