Deletion of article:olubunmi kuku[edit]

hi, please i would like you to kindly restore my article, so that it can be improved upon, i am kinda new to wikipedia and would like to be given a chance to build this article up to Wikipedia standards.Tygeera (talk) 17:30, 27 July 2017 (UTC)

You should be aware that the article could have been deleted because of notability issues. Have a read of WP:BIO. If you can demonstrate that the person meets these requirements, then I'll restore the artice to your user area (see WP:userfy) so that you can work on it with less chance of deletion. One other thing - are you connected with Olubunmi Kuku? Stephen! Coming... 17:36, 27 July 2017 (UTC)

well the subject in question was a special adviser to the minister of aviation in nigeria, for a couple of years and has worked in a couple international companies including bank of montreal, she is a notable person in nigeria, also because she got married into a famous nigerian wealthy family, this link is an article of her wedding, this link is here during her tenure as special adviser attending an event And no i am not related or familiar with the subject. i really hope you restore the page, it took me really long to gather that information.

Done - see the post on your talk page for more details. Stephen! Coming... 11:34, 28 July 2017 (UTC)

I'm merging that stub[edit]

See Baada. Yes, you did the right thing because I didn't explain myself. No one appears to write or read these articles. Cheers.Nishidani (talk) 13:12, 13 August 2017 (UTC)

So I see. As I said before on your talk page, if you do believe that the text needs removing, then go ahead and do it. And in the light of your work on Baada, I can see it is especially necessary considering that both articles appear to be referring to the same people. Stephen! Coming... 11:08, 14 August 2017 (UTC)
Thanks Stephen. I don't know the technicalities about merging. So many articles are badly named, or poorly done, that one fails to note a new page one starts to write is already covered, if badly. They are the same people - fashion now dictates that the detribalized heirs prefer Bardi, but the tribal elders were repeatedly questioned on this before much knowledge was lost and they concurred that Baada was the correct autonym. In any case, the article I've started will go to 8-10,000kb shortly, as time allows, which I can't see anyone doing for the other (which is poorly sourced or badly formatted). Thanks for reminding me I should add an edit summary. I forget to do that too often since as I do 20-30 edits to an obscure page, I don't think there are readers out there that need to be signaled. Clearly a false premise.Nishidani (talk) 12:12, 14 August 2017 (UTC)
I would suggest that you Be Bold and just carry out the merger. The instructions are here, but essentially, you copy the source text and paste it into the destination article (remembering to leave the appropriate edit summary, as detailed in the instructions). Then set up redirects, and then merge the talk pages. I've not done one before, but the instructions seem simple enough to follow. Stephen! Coming... 16:09, 14 August 2017 (UTC)
Well, I've an established reputation for screwing up even the simplest things like merges and redirects. It's a cognitive problem: my attention span drops to nanoseconds with any prose that is technical.When I get an appliance, like my first computer and its 400+ pages, I read two paragraphs, threw it over my shoulder, and switched it on and worked out everything I needed to know in a few hours, empirically, same with fixing fridges, motor mowers etc. ( there I occasionally electrocute myself (twice in the past three years) but that's quite enjoyable once you get used to it). I'll cast around to see if anyone of several canny and technowise wikipedians can fix it. Thanks for your careful attention to the project. It's nice to see. Best regards Nishidani (talk) 16:43, 14 August 2017 (UTC)
If you can't find anyone to do it, I'll copy it across and do the merge, but I'll let you sort out where to place the copied text as you know the subject matter far better than I. Stephen! Coming... 17:00, 14 August 2017 (UTC)
That's very very decent of you, Stephen. I have copied, (and reformatted, and introduced better sources) for all the information remaining on that page. The Baada page now has everything incorporated from Bardi. Technically, I guess, one (I) could empty the page so that, if it's okay, you just went through with the redirect or whatever it's called, Bardi → Baada? terribly sorry for the bother, but I'm happy my lack of an edit summary led me to encounter another fellow wikipedian! Nishidani (talk) 17:33, 14 August 2017 (UTC)
No problem. I'll have a go at it tomorrow, as I have to shoot off now. Stephen! Coming... 17:39, 14 August 2017 (UTC)

Invitation to Admin confidence survey[edit]


Beginning in September 2017, the Wikimedia Foundation Anti-harassment tool team will be conducting a survey to gauge how well tools, training, and information exists to assist English Wikipedia administrators in recognizing and mitigating things like sockpuppetry, vandalism, and harassment.

The survey should only take 5 minutes, and your individual response will not be made public. This survey will be integral for our team to determine how to better support administrators.

To take the survey sign up here and we will send you a link to the form.

We really appreciate your input!

Please let us know if you wish to opt-out of all massmessage mailings from the Anti-harassment tools team.
