Re - F Barakat

Hi. My only contribution was the addition of my portrait. I was made aware of the article by a contributor whom suggested, due to copyright, that I upload an image to complete the page. I do not see the need, but if necessary I can remove my contribution?

Regardless, I will make no further changes to the article.

Yours Sincerely, FayezBarakat (talk) 21:08, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

WikiSOO class

Hi Stuart,

I see you have welcomed a number of my new students in the WikiSOO online course. Thank you! We have not planned to use the formal Education Program student training (since the subject matter of our class is Wikipedia, it could be somewhat redundant) -- but perhaps it will be helpful to our students.

If you would like to join our class for one or more of our Thursday/Friday lab sessions and help answer questions, let me know. It would be great to have a few ambassadors drop by and help out over the six week course! -Pete (talk) 06:48, 15 May 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the invite, but I'm in an unusual timezone, so synchronous meetups typically don't work for me. Stuartyeates (talk) 22:08, 15 May 2013 (UTC)

Nomination of Adobe OnLocation for deletion

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Adobe OnLocation 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/Adobe OnLocation 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. --Bejnar (talk) 16:24, 17 May 2013 (UTC)

Notice

We demand that you update our Wiki entry to say "Private University" - our true classification - and stop labeling us a for-profit career college. We will not hesitate to subpoena all of your true identities again in federal court. We've already been assisted in bringing down the Controversy section of our page due to our cyber-stalkers spreading lies about us. Just because our investors are Mormon does not mean we are a Mormon school. And just because one of our directors was investigated for fraud and bribery years ago does not mean our school deserves a Controversy section on Wikipedia. We will continue to fight anyone who attacks our school on the internet. You have been warned. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lymani (talkcontribs) 18:11, 19 May 2013 (UTC)

I invite you to read Wikipedia:No legal threats. Stuartyeates (talk) 01:27, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

DNZB remaining articles

Hi Stuart, I hope you are well. I'm not sure whether you have the DNZB project page on your watchlist, but it's had a good tidy up, and it's now showing only those articles that are missing. That list is now down to 169 entries. I wonder whether after all the grief that you've been given for your good work you are still inclined to do any more work on it. If yes, I suggest that we have a discussion on the relevant talk page. Schwede66 05:37, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

Article notability notification

Hello. This message is to inform you that an article that you wrote, Joseph Burns (murderer), has been recently tagged with a notability notice. This means that it may not meet Wikipedia's notability guidelines. Please note that articles which do not meet these criteria may be merged, redirected, or deleted. Please consider adding reliable, secondary sources to the article in order to establish the topic's notability. You may find the following links useful when searching for sources: Find sources: "Joseph Burns (murderer)" – news · books · scholar · JSTOR · free images. Thank you for editing Wikipedia!

Eventfinda page

Thanks for the notification Stuart of course you're correct as co-founder & CEO I have a conflict of interest with Eventfinda. I had read the neutrality guidelines but hadn't seen conflict of interest. SimonLyall has since cleaned up external links on the Eventfinda article and two links from other articles. What's your recommendation from here, should I revert the edits I'd made to the article page itself and submit sources to another editor? Jamesmcglinn (talk) 12:24, 7 July 2013 (UTC)

I'd just leave. Stuartyeates (talk) 23:58, 7 July 2013 (UTC)

re Camille Carrion page

I have removed the {{prod}} tag from [[{{{1}}}]], which you proposed for deletion. I'm leaving this message here to notify you about it. If you still think the article should be deleted, please don't add the {{prod}} template back to the article. Instead, feel free to list it at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion. Thanks! for the Camille Carrion page. I guess what you meant was that there were no external links/references attached. Added some already. Immediately PROD seems a bit harsh, especially if you seem to not know the topic. best, NY

thanks. Stuartyeates (talk) 20:16, 3 June 2013 (UTC)

Mirek Smíšek

Hi, thanks for message. I deleted your article because it did not provide independent verifiable sources to enable us to verify the facts and show that it meets the notability guidelines. It is now Wikipedia policy that biographical articles about living people must have independent verifiable references, or they will be deleted. If you recreate, it would be better to put your references in-line and format as [url descripion] rather than bare urls. I'll shortly post the text here Jimfbleak - talk to me? 05:07, 22 May 2013 (UTC)

Changes to SuggestBot's suggestions

We have changed the number of suggested articles and which categories they are selected from. The number of stubs has been greatly reduced, the number of articles needing sources doubled, and two new categories added (orphans and unencyclopaedic articles). We have also modified the layout of the suggestions and added sortable columns with various types of information about each article. The first two columns are:

Views/Day 
Daily average number of views an article's had over the past 14 days.
Quality 
Predicted article quality on a 1- to 3-star scale. Placing your cursor over the stars should give you a pop-up describing the article's quality (Low/Medium/High), current assessment class, and predicted assessment class.

The method we use to predict article quality also allows us to assess whether an article might need specific types of work in order to improve its quality. The work needed might not correspond to cleanup tags added to the article, since our method is not based on those. We have added five columns reflecting this work assessment, where a red X indicates improvement is needed. Placing your cursor over an X should give you a pop-up with a short description of the work needed. The five columns seek to answer the following five questions:

Content 
Is more content needed?
Headings 
Does this article have an appropriate section structure?
Images 
Is the number of illustrative images about right?
Links 
Does this article link to enough other Wikipedia articles?
Sources 
For its length, is there an appropriate number of citations to sources in this article?

SuggestBot picks articles in a number of ways based on other articles you've edited, including straight text similarity, following wikilinks, and matching your editing patterns against those of other Wikipedians. It tries to recommend only articles that other Wikipedians have marked as needing work. We appreciate that you have signed up to receive suggestions regularly, your contributions make Wikipedia better — thanks for helping!

If you have feedback on how to make SuggestBot better, please let us know on SuggestBot's talk page. Regards from Nettrom (talk), SuggestBot's caretaker. -- SuggestBot (talk) 23:59, 24 May 2013 (UTC)

Herb Rooney

It does say at the top of my talk page NOT to notify me of events like these because I have full notifications enabled - but there are bigger fish to fry here.

Herb Rooney produced and was a member of the The Exciters, co-writing the song Reaching for the Best which was a UK #31 hit (which I ought to write!) and he wrote and produced the sample staple Synthetic Substitution by Melvin Bliss, which is the most sampled song of all time that did not involve James Brown.

Semiconductor luminescence equations

Hi, what does the tag "tone" and also the two categories "mathematics" and "physics" mean in connection with the page Semiconductor luminescence equations? Can you explain, please? Thanks, Boettge.biz —Preceding undated comment added 19:29, 31 May 2013 (UTC)

WPMOS says that acronyms are to be avoided, so it's 'the equations' not 'SLEs'; the article relies heavily on primary sources and needs secondary sources (think review articles, text books etc.); the ledge needs the be rewritten for a high school level audience with links to related articles; etc. Stuartyeates (talk) 20:45, 31 May 2013 (UTC)

Suffragists...

Hello, and thank you for the compliment. The page has a long way to go - each entry has to have a summary, and there are close to 300 entries now. But each of the pages linked there needs (at least in how I'm working on lists and templates) to be linked to a few pages in their own "See also" sections. My goal with all of this is to create a web of the pages (as with other) so each page is linked to the central articles as well as the central lists being as complete as possible. You seem to work on New Zealand pages, and I'm glad you noticed me scrambling around the listings for NZ which, of course, is the honored first nation to give women the right to vote. And you are correct in pointing out the "past" tense, and I will work on the intro as soon as dropping this off. The women's right to vote movement does, of course, continue, and you are a scholar and a gentleman (lady?) for realizing that and pointing it out. I don't know what a "hat" is in relation to the terms here. The "See also" list on the page links to other lists (civil rights leaders. women's rights activists, timelines, etc.). Thanks very much, and it's nice meeting you. I don't "know" many people here, and am more or less a loner user as I roam the halls and byways of the site. It's good to talk to others with the same interests. Well, back to "work" (play!) Randy Kryn 00:15 7 June, 2013 (UTC)

Hat notes are a form of disambiguation that appear at the top of pages where there is scope for confusion. The are always appear immediately prior to the lead and are styled in italics. See for example the pages Joseph Smith, Elizabeth II and New York. The documentation is at Template:Hatnote. Stuartyeates (talk) 01:11, 7 June 2013 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Saman Kelegama, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Institute of Policy Studies (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Karatsuba "petition"

I quite understand that the "petition" at Talk:Anatolii Alexeevitch Karatsuba is of no effect, but I don't see what is to be gained by removing the signatures that other users are putting there. People tend to react badly to having their comments removed, and there is no mandate at WP:TPO that says you have to do it. I suggest that on on balance it is less disruptive to let people sign away. If their signatures are in the wrong place it would be more courteous to move them than delete them. Spectral sequence (talk) 20:49, 15 June 2013 (UTC)

Changes to SuggestBot's suggestions

We have changed the number of suggested articles and which categories they are selected from. The number of stubs has been greatly reduced, the number of articles needing sources doubled, and two new categories added (orphans and unencyclopaedic articles). We have also modified the layout of the suggestions and added sortable columns with various types of information about each article. The first two columns are:

Views/Day 
Daily average number of views an article's had over the past 14 days.
Quality 
Predicted article quality on a 1- to 3-star scale. Placing your cursor over the stars should give you a pop-up describing the article's quality (Low/Medium/High), current assessment class, and predicted assessment class.

The method we use to predict article quality also allows us to assess whether an article might need specific types of work in order to improve its quality. The work needed might not correspond to cleanup tags added to the article, since our method is not based on those. We have added five columns reflecting this work assessment, where a red X indicates improvement is needed. Placing your cursor over an X should give you a pop-up with a short description of the work needed. The five columns seek to answer the following five questions:

Content 
Is more content needed?
Headings 
Does this article have an appropriate section structure?
Images 
Is the number of illustrative images about right?
Links 
Does this article link to enough other Wikipedia articles?
Sources 
For its length, is there an appropriate number of citations to sources in this article?

SuggestBot picks articles in a number of ways based on other articles you've edited, including straight text similarity, following wikilinks, and matching your editing patterns against those of other Wikipedians. It tries to recommend only articles that other Wikipedians have marked as needing work. We appreciate that you have signed up to receive suggestions regularly, your contributions make Wikipedia better — thanks for helping!

If you have feedback on how to make SuggestBot better, please let us know on SuggestBot's talk page. Regards from Nettrom (talk), SuggestBot's caretaker. -- SuggestBot (talk) 23:45, 21 June 2013 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Saman Kelegama, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Institute of Policy Studies (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). 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.

Problem redirection

Your move here seems to have made a bad situation worse. What we should have is an article at Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing with nonprintworthy redirects from EMDR and from Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing and in-text linkage from Francine Shapiro. Please see if you can sort it out. LeadSongDog come howl! 16:22, 27 June 2013 (UTC)

Stuart, I've undone the redirection mentioned above for much the same reasons as LeadSongDog gives. I realise that you waited some time and there were no reactions, but that sometimes happens and in particular your move left the talk page as an orphan. Can I suggest a proper discussion there? Chris55 (talk) 21:16, 27 June 2013 (UTC)
I stepped away from the issue immediately after my BLP/N post in which I admitted a misstep. I no longer have any of these pages on my watchlist and do not plan any futher involvement with these pages. Stuartyeates (talk) 21:23, 27 June 2013 (UTC)
Thanks Stuart for the clarification. We'll see what the discussion produces - in particular if EMDRIntnl will join the community. Chris55 (talk) 21:29, 27 June 2013 (UTC)

Discopter

Hi Stuartyeates. I've removed your proposed deletion template for the above article because you already tried that two weeks ago - proposed deletion is for uncontroversial deletions and this one was objected to by the article's creator removing the template last time. I suggest you take it for discussion at Articles for deletion if you continue to have concerns. Thanks. ~ mazca talk 13:51, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

Dead people

Just a reminder that it is never appropriate to add the category tag Category:Dead people to an article, even if it is about a dead person. Category:Dead people is a container for other categories, and should never be added to an article directly. If the year of death is known, use the appropriate year-of-death category; if you don't know the year of death, use Category:Year of death missing; and if the year of death is completely lost to history, use Category:Year of death unknown. — Paul A (talk) 02:14, 2 July 2013 (UTC)

SPI report

Hi Stuart, Thanks for filing the SPI report. I was expecting Offender to eventually try to evade their block - long running POV pushers often do - so the Checkuser finding three sockpuppet accounts is hardly surprising. I fear that he'll try again. Regards, Nick-D (talk) 11:31, 3 July 2013 (UTC)

Also, it was interesting to see that he was running the JaggerAgain and Cleverdickie socks before being blocked. Nick-D (talk) 11:43, 3 July 2013 (UTC)
Personally I find it very disheartening. Stuartyeates (talk) 20:35, 3 July 2013 (UTC)

I'm just catching up on how this all unfolded - great work on the SPI. I wasn't aware that it is possible to kick off an investigation like that. The fact it showed 3 accounts linked and created some time back makes me wonder what tricks he will try next. I guess this means there are even more articles which need editing to try and resolve POV issues lurking out there now. I agree with the fact it is disheartening - cleaning up articles that someone has deliberately skewed is a tough slog. Clarke43 (talk) 09:12, 4 July 2013 (UTC)

It felt odd, so I decided to double-or-nothing and opened the SPI. Withdrawing from the DRN pending the outcome was a balance per WP:AGF; I'm glad I made it. Stuartyeates (talk) 09:43, 4 July 2013 (UTC)

Thanks also for those blog posts. I really should be keeping a list of the odd things I've been accused of by unhappy editors. I was about to post a pithy reply to the most recent post, but I don't want Mr Brooking knowing what my IP address is. Regards, Nick-D (talk) 03:36, 7 July 2013 (UTC)

@Anniecruickshank: To be honest, what you need is in-depth coverage of the subject, and I'm not really seeing it. You may want to wait a couple of month for the subject to get better coverage. Stuartyeates (talk) 22:10, 11 July 2013 (UTC)

Jeremy Mushlin

I hate to bother you, but I removed your prod for this article. It could be a controversial deletion. As a past member of two notable bands, it's arguable that he passes WP:MUSICBIO. Feel free to go to the next step at WP:AfD. Bearian (talk) 20:13, 11 July 2013 (UTC)

New Zealand Flax

Hi Stuartyeates, I added back the content I added, I used two sources Brooker, S. G; R. C Cambie, Robert C Cooper (1987) and http://naturatomica.com/post/harakere. The book was already in the ref list, you can check on the page No. 91 (of the book) there is a chemistry section so I took "Constituents" info from there. The plant description I took from the external link, it's not a government or university website but they do give their sources (books) and it may well be that they are solid. I don't know how correctly add short version of ref. (author name, year and page number) thus not sure if it's shown correctly , but I will amend it once I find a correct way of doing so. Would very much appreciate if you could show me how to do it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ihtenish (talkcontribs) 07:12, 13 July 2013 (UTC)

The problem is not with the Constituents section, it's with the other sections. The other sections are (a) contain no references (b) actively misleading (c) no in the style of wikipedia. (d) ignore the fact that harakeke isn't used as a single medicine but as a huge class of medicines which happen to contain one or more parts of the harakeke plant as an ingredient. Stuartyeates (talk) 07:54, 13 July 2013 (UTC)

I am not intend to argue with you but I honestly don't understand why the information provided is misleading, there is no source (books) that advice that harakeke interact with any drugs, etc. In regards to the style content , before posting anything I visited other pages and took the "style" idea from other pages which are similar in subject. I would appreciate very much if you give me a clue what is appropriate style. If I provide the references (books) for the information I added could you please help me to amend the style so it complies with Wiki requirements? Ihtenish (talk —Preceding undated comment added 08:13, 13 July 2013 (UTC)

All modern research on this kind of thing is done at the species level, which is where you should be putting it. The most common Flax in New Zealand is Phormium tenax whose page says (with a decent looking reference) "The blades of the plant contain cucurbitacins, which are poisonous to some animals, and some of them are among the bitterest tastes to humans". Also there should be no unreferenced sections and none with only placeholder information. Stuartyeates (talk) 10:46, 13 July 2013 (UTC)

Hi, Stuartyeates. Thanks for your advice. I will try to re-write the paragraph (the way you suggesting) this weekend (20/07). Ihtenish (talk) 06:00, 15 July 2013 (UTC)
