Orphaned non-free media (File:Jonathan Frid 1968.jpg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:Jonathan Frid 1968.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Hazard-Bot (talk) 04:13, 9 December 2012 (UTC)

Request reason:

I was blocked by User:Ponyo for vandalizing. Well I'm sorry for the trouble I caused, but it's because I had no experience, but after I joined the Simple English community I learned many new responsibilities. I'm a patroller. I had guidance from great users there. I promise I will dedicate myself to fixing articles and revert edits like what I do in at the Simple English. I know that sockpuppetry is very serious, but I didn't even realize that that was a thing. I will use this User name like what I do in the SEW. I had help from World Traveler 101. I request to be unblocked and to also be forgiven by those who I had taken the worked out of. I mean all of these words from my heart. Thanks

Accept reason:

Since a significant amount of time has passed, and there is no objection from the blocking checkuser, I have unblocked your account here. Please limit yourself to one account, even avoiding creating legitimate socks, for the time being. Good luck. Kuru (talk) 14:19, 27 December 2013 (UTC)

Hajo Meyer's place of death[edit]

Hey TDKR Chicago 101,

I saw your edit on Hajo Meyer where you added Meyer's place of death as being The Hague. I would like to add his place of death on the Dutch wiki, but I couldn't find a source confirming he died in The Hague. Where did you find the information that he died there?

Americans[edit]

I don't mind the mosaic, but I have a problem with the people this user chose. I believe the people we had represented a more balanced approach. Do you want to make it a mosaic but with the people we had on there? The addition of the final row is banal and unrepresentative of America as a whole. It includes people like Nicole Scherzinger. — Preceding unsigned comment added by JosephSpiral (talkcontribs) 10:06, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

That is very true. I would like to create a mosaic with the people we had before, but I don't know were to start. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 17:13, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
The current 36 images are undue weight. Obviously their number must be reduced. I made a few adjustments and used people from the current images, but cut the number to 24, as you can see now. There are several problems with current images:
1. When the images are more than 30 the viewer is lost in the image.
2. We must to add at least one American, who was born after 1974 (under 40 years). One general rule in the images in infobox is to describe people from different generations and historical periods. Many nations have least one person, born after 1974. For example - Italians has Valentino Rossi, Serbs - Novak Djokovic, Bulgarians - Grigor Dimitrov and Nina Dobrev, Brazilians - Neymar and Adriana Lima, Norwegians - Lisa-Mari Moen Jünge, etc. The youngest American in current images is Michael Jordan, who is 51 years old (1963). In the previous version were 2 persons of this generation, but I cut Scherzinger and keep Angelina Jolie, who was born in 1975. Actually, if we compared to the other articles, she is on the border (Grigor Dimitrov and Neymar are born in 1990s). But she is world popular as a whole. Other people who can to replaced or to be added in images - Michael Phelps, Beyonce, somebody who you want. If you have an idea for a some significant American, born in the 1980s or 1990s, you can suggest him/her and I will add this person in mosaic.
3. The majority of the faces must be Americans, who are popular outside of United States. For example - Merilyn Monroe and Hemingway are world famous, while Oprah Winfrey and Edgar Allan Poe are almost unknown for non-Americans (which do not minimize their significance). But it's not so important.--Stolichanin (talk) 19:22, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Okay, but don't add a whole bunch of young Americans because their popular. You must also have historical American figures. For instance, add a couple of young Americans and keep the presidents: Washington, Lincoln, Kennedy, and Reagan. Add famous writers or poets and add singers too. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 19:40, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── I've removed the mosaic, as there was no discussion beforehand about adding it, and you don't appear to be watching the article talk page for suggestions on updating the images. Please do not re-add the mosaic without a clear consensus on the talk page to do so first. Thanks. - BilCat (talk) 17:36, 17 October 2014 (UTC)

  • I felt it was going to fall apart eventually. Don't worry, I will never to a big change without a discussion :) --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 20:47, 17 October 2014 (UTC)
Ah, OK. It's six of one or half-dozen of the other. With the mosaic, there is much less edit warring to add faves and remove foes, but harder it's harder to change the mosaic. Perhaps there is an in-between solution such as an editable mosaic page/template? Then that page could be semi- or-full protected, but more editors or admins could do the updating. I don't know of anything like that though, but there may be one somewhere. - BilCat (talk) 21:00, 17 October 2014 (UTC)
Sorry I meant do instead of to. Damn keyboards. But I fell that the page might should be protected. Maybe a Pending changes protection would be appropriate in the near future . --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 21:48, 17 October 2014 (UTC)
It's really only the images in the infobox that are the issue, so I'm not sure an admin will be willing to apply PC for that issue alone. - BilCat (talk)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Christine Cavanaugh.jpg[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Christine Cavanaugh.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a non-free file with a clearly invalid licensing tag; or it otherwise fails some part of the non-free content criteria. If you can find a valid tag that expresses why the file can be used under the fair use guidelines, please replace the current tag with that tag. If no such tag exists, please add the {{Non-free fair use}} tag, along with a brief explanation of why this constitutes fair use of the file. If the file has been deleted, you can re-upload it, but please ensure you place the correct tag on it.

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 "Click here to 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.

Your action is obviously good faith, but Beyond My Ken is right, a page tag is unnecessary when all the sections or specific claims have been tagged. I was going to remove the page tag myself hours ago, but figured it would end up in a dispute. As it stands, the tag should be left of as redundant overkill that repeats the same thing too much over and over again when it's not necessary.  :) μηδείς (talk) 06:18, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

2016[edit]

If you could throw together a proposal using my sandbox version. We can place circular images above each candidate's name in the extant table. I like the circular photos, they're a modern feel. Spartan7W § 00:12, 13 August 2015 (UTC)

I get the circular photos and it sounds great, but is there a way to "circularize" better images of the GOP candidates. Like official portrait aren't that modern. Like at the Simple there are great pictures of Graham, Kasich, Paul at campaigns. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 00:14, 13 August 2015 (UTC)
The Graham one at simple is a bad photo, IMHO (isn't looking at the camera, bad lighting). Kasich is mid-sentence, like he's drinking a straw. The Paul is okay. All official portraits, save Hillary are 2011 or newer. Their appearance hasn't changed. Spartan7W § 00:18, 13 August 2015 (UTC)
Ok, but the picture of Paul at Simple English seems to be better than the official though. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 00:25, 13 August 2015 (UTC)
See, I like the circles so much because each image has different bounds. Also, could you create an RfC page like I did for your proposal? It can make tweaking much easier, and save talk space due to references Spartan7W § 00:31, 13 August 2015 (UTC)

Lawrence Lessig Presidential Campaign page[edit]

Dear TDKR of Chicago Greetings You chose to delete the information on the candidate's spouse (the entire First lady section) as "not needed." I thought it would be good to restore it. Over time the attraction of a presidential candidate is at least cosmetically linked to his spouse's identity. Since Mr Lessig's wife is also a practicing attorney with liberal views this is relevant. Further you will recall that some Presidential candidates were derailed when the press investigated the spouse's background. I have in mind the information uncovered about Sen Bill Bradley's wife's family and their status during WWII, as Germans (if I recall correctly). Note that Mr Lessig's wife is German born. Also if you visit the link for Mrs Lessig's bio that I provided in that first draft of the section you will see that like Lessig she works at Harvard. The nature of her work at Harvard and also whether she also plans to resign her Harvard position are noteworthy issues for this candidate. Please remember he is running in the same campaign where the tricky interrelationships between Mrs Clinton's work and Mr Clinton's Foundation are relevant. Any possible link between the campaign and Mrs Lessig's work at Harvard or as an attorney might be come relevant. If we restore the section then useful and relevant info can be deposited there. Please consider restoring the section.96.224.64.137 (talk) 05:45, 8 September 2015 (UTC)

Yes, but that information is best needed in the Lawrence Lessig article. You don't see that kind of information at Trump's or Bush's or Sanders's campaign page. If Lessig wins the nomination then maybe, but as of right now information about his wife is not needed or is not important to the campaign. Really, that information would be good for Lessig's personal life section. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 11:51, 8 September 2015 (UTC)

Copying content from other Wikimedia pages[edit]

Hello, TDKR Chicago 101. You recently created the article Edward Sims Van Zile by copying content from Simple English Wikipedia.

It's okay to copy content between our projects, as long as the content is appropriate on both, but it's important to realize that content on our projects is not public domain, and copying it without meeting the requirements of the license is no different than copying it from a fully protected website.

Fortunately, it's not that hard to meet the terms of the license. Usually, all it requires is a direct link in your edit summary to the source article with a note that you are copying (or, if it applies, translating) material. We ask that you also put a note on the talk page of the source article and the destination article, to help avoid mistakes later.

I have fixed the attribution requirements at this article. You can see what I have done at simple:Talk:Edward Sims Van Zile, [1] and Talk:Edward Sims Van Zile.

In future, please make sure you provide the legally required attribution when copying content between articles or between our sites, even if you are not creating an article from scratch.

Inge King date of death[edit]

You changed the data of death for Inge King from the 23 of April to the 24 of April. I have reversed that change. The date of the death is confirmed as the 23rd in the "Australian" newspaper on the 26/4/16 where it reports Inge died "on Saturday night". Also I am a friend of Inga's and I was notified by her daughter soon after she died. So unless you are much better informed than me please do not change this back.

Knudson article[edit]

You added a cleanup request to the article on Alfred G. Knudson, suggesting that the lead was too long, not encyclopedic, and looked like it had been "copy and pasted" from another website or blog.

I moved the content to the Life and Career section, instead of the lead. I agree that this is more in keeping with the format of wikipedia articles. However, the content is original and I wrote it yesterday (July 11) after reading several of Al's articles (he was a colleague of mine). I can add additional references but it seems OK as it is. I don't know what you mean by "not encyclopedic." It tries to explain the two hit hypothesis in relatively simple but accurate language.

I've removed the request for cleanup, since it has in fact now been cleaned up. Feel free to suggest or make other changes. Thanks for your suggestions.

Republican, Reagan admirer who supports Bernie Sanders?[edit]

Really? I don't understand how. Will be glad if you would explain. Archway (talk) 05:34, 8 August 2016 (UTC)

  • @Archwayh:: I don't like getting political on the Wikipedia, but I have been asked this question many times. I've been interested in Presidents since I was in 3rd grade and my favorite was Reagan because his character reminded me of my grandfather who I miss dearly. As I grew up I researched him and found out he was a good president who created jobs and served the economy well (I also admire FDR, Eisenhower, and Bush, Sr.) . I judge a president by the passion they have for the nation and the people. Reagan has great passion and every decision he made he thought about the American people. As this election cycle came I hoped for another Reagan, but I couldn't find a right candidate...except for John Kasich but he didn't have the opportunity in this election sadly. I was a moderate Republican and was open and understanding for the arguments based on Rep. and Dem. Then I saw Bernie Sanders. I love and admire him very much. He has so much passion and a rich character that neither Clinton or Trump can't match. He speaks from the heart and that's what a good president needs. Reagan spoke from the heart and so does Bernie. As I heard Bernie's speeches, he made me realize that Democratic Socialism isn't a bad system but works if you have the right people behind it. So since 2016, I've become a Democratic Socialist and Sanders changed my political perspective for the better. As I said before I see both sides of the argument, I will always admire Reagan for his passion and some of his political contributions, but I will also admire Bernie for the way he created a revolution and has sparked up young people to be involved in the political system. I hope you understand and thank you so much for asking! --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 20:51, 8 August 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for answering this also, as I too wondered about your statement. I also try to avoid getting political on Wikipedia, but when I read your statement, this thought came to mind. Here it is in Reagan's own words. :) - BilCat (talk) 21:26, 8 August 2016 (UTC)
  • A man of great humor! I do wish I lived during the Reagan years. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 21:29, 8 August 2016 (UTC)
I understand. I have also changed my political views through my lifetime. I don't agree with Reagan's conservative agenda, but I admire his optimism ("shining city on hill") and stance against Russia that are missing from the current GOP nominee. But, as a Sanders supporter, are you still a Republican? (as you note on your page). And secondly, would you follow Bernie's advise by voting for Hillary Clinton or will you cast your vote for a third party candidate? (say, Garry Johnson). Archway (talk) 22:59, 8 August 2016 (UTC)
@Archwayh:: I used to be a Moderate and I admire the strength and optimism of Reagan, but Sanders got to me so I'm leaning to Independent following with the views of Democratic Socialism. I will never support either Trump or Hillary. I am trying to raise awareness of the third party system. TBH, Jill Stein doesn't stand a chance with her low polling numbers and low political experience, so I'm with Johnson: he has the supporters, he maybe be included to the debates as he's slowly reaching 15%, has many endorsements, and has the experience (former Governor). --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 06:50, 15 August 2016 (UTC)

Corrections... to page and to behavior[edit]

You edited the page: Helen Sommers to add place-of-death as 'Seattle, Washington'...

  • which is factually wrong
  • you added it without a reference
  • you left the edit summary blank

I had to search the edit history to figure out which edit and editor had added the erroneous info. Entering useful edit summaries usually makes that unnecessary. Please try to get into the good habit of entering edit summaries! Even a very brief and cryptic summary is better than none.

Adding info without having a reference for it is also a bad habit... of a kind which lets errors creep into and accumulate in articles. In this case, it made the existing reference seem to be a reference for both the date AND place of death, when that (NWCN) article does NOT mention the place of death. Editors updating an article a few days, months, or years after you shouldn't have to play detective to figure out which info is properly sourced, and which is not.

That said, I don't mean to dampen your enthusiasm. Wikipedia thrives on enthusiasm. Happy editing! — Mwr0 (talk) 17:06, 8 March 2017 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:HalHolbrookMarkTwain.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:HalHolbrookMarkTwain.jpg. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy.

TheFamousPeople.com as a source[edit]

Hi TDKR Chicago 101. I've been looking over the use of thefamouspeople.com as a source or link in Wikipedia. There have been concerns of it being spammed, and doesn't appear to be a reliable source per Wikipedia:Help_desk/Archives/2017_May_29#The_Famous_People:_Reliable.3F.

Speedy deletion nomination of Gustavo Pareja[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 Gustavo Pareja 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 a real person or group of people, 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. reddogsix (talk) 03:33, 27 August 2017 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Gustavo Pareja[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Gustavo Pareja has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Non-notable individual lacking non-trivial support. Fails WP:POLITICIAN

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages 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 page 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. reddogsix (talk) 04:22, 27 August 2017 (UTC)

Commas[edit]

Greetings, and thanks for your contributions to the project.

May I just draw your attention to WP:Basic copyediting#Punctuation. In some of your recent edits, e.g. Tobe Hooper and David Torrence (athlete) (the "Death" section in both cases), you seem to have forgot the second comma (twice over).

Please remember it going forward.

Thanks, and have a good day.

Regards

Carl Sargeant: Cause of death (suicide) should NOT be written as if it had already been established (contempt of court)[edit]

In the United Kingdom (England and Wales), whether a person has died (in a suspicious, unnatural or unexplained death) from suicide or not, is usually only formally and properly established, concluded or determined by someone called a coroner, in something called a Coroner's Inquest ... until the Inquest on the matter of the death of the late Carl Sargeant AM has been concluded, I would suggest that reports of suicide from even from such eminent and respectable journals as the Mirror, the Guardian, the Socialist Worker and the Morning Star should not be misused here in order to "jump the gun" before the coroner (and his jury, if there is to be one) has actually have the chance of finishing doing his (or their) job under the Coroners Act 1988 (1998 c. 13) [3] and the Coroners and Justice Act 2009 (2009 c. 25) [4]. "From an unconfirmed suspected suicide", not "from suicide". (Under the Contempt of Court Act 1981 (1981 c. 49) [5], which also covers the work of coroners and Coroners' Courts, the maximum penalty according to Section 14(1)(2) [6] is a fine not exceeding £2,500 or 2 years' imprisonment, or both. [7][8][9]: "Commenting on the results of an inquest could prevent a future criminal trial as the defendant may not be able to get a fair trial.") --- 87.102.116.36 (talk) 07:24, 8 November 2017 (UTC)

WP:RY and the 10-language rule.[edit]

Unfortunately, certain RfCs have been interpreted as eliminating the 10-language rule in particular, and WP:RY in its entirety. I think it both a bad idea and an intentional misinterpretation of the RfCs, but it probably reflects current consensus. — Arthur Rubin (talk) 19:37, 20 December 2017 (UTC)

Yes, that's right. We're already free of the 10-language "rule" (which was never a "rule") as the alleged "RY guideline" was restored to its correct place as an "essay". Moreover, we have overwhelming consensus to remove RY entirely as a curiosity, an anachronism, a walled garden, which doesn't and has never, served our readers well. So it'd be best in future to not remove items based on the edit summary you gave. Cheers. The Rambling Man (talk) 19:54, 20 December 2017 (UTC)
As usual, you are wrong. There is a consensus against the 10-language rule, in spite of badly written RfCs, but there is no consensus to remove WP:RY nor to create any specific alternative guideline. — Arthur Rubin (talk) 06:19, 26 December 2017 (UTC)
Arthur Rubin No, I'n not wrong. There's a clear consensus in using any "special guidelines" for something formerly known as "recent years". And do avoid your ongoing personal attacks in your edit summaries and responses Rubin. My collection of your offences is growing and soon we'll be seeing the back of you permanently.

Odvar Nordli[edit]

I am very disappointing with your behaviour at that article, allthough your original intent was good. But I added substantial improvements that you erased with no explanations. This is not allowed and you are basically sabotaging my work. Adding sources as you did does not give you the right to remove newly added and corrected material. Please undo your removal of my work. I have been working hard to get this article up to standard in time for the front page.Iselilja (talk) 23:57, 10 January 2018 (UTC)

  • @Iselilja: I believe you are misunderstanding my work. In no way am I sabotaging your work. The article is currently nominated for INT (RD tag) and I love to improve the articles nominated so they could be recognized in the global scale on the main. I believe this article has a fair chance, but if you keep reverting the article the source work is undone and therefore the votes will be opposed seeing that the main criteria is source work. I blame edit conflict and I have given explanations for my edits (fixing sourcing, fixing lead, removing stub status). --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 00:01, 11 January 2018 (UTC)
The reason you stated (at my talk page) for removing my additions was edit conflict. That's understandable. But when improvements have been removed by a misunderstanding (edit conflict), the improvements need to be put back. I am sorry for being a bit brusque, but like I said I also try to improve the article for the main page, and I need the improvements I have already done back in, in order to improve the article further. Iselilja (talk) 00:06, 11 January 2018 (UTC)
@Iselilja: Exactly and then you started to removed my source work and my lead work. Similar how you said "basically sabotaging your work" and how you have been working hard on your edits is how I felt when you kept undoing them. I felt why undo work that would keep this article good enough to pass RD when you kept undoing it. I felt you were sabotaging my work. Look we both know this is a misunderstanding and I'm glad you took this on a talk page rather than going back and forth. This is just a misunderstanding. I was undoing your hard work for the good or the article and you were undoing my work for the good of the article. This is just one big misunderstanding. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 00:10, 11 January 2018 (UTC)
Yes, I know you were working to improve the article and the problem was an unfortunate edit conflict. Hopefully the article is good to go now. Iselilja (talk) 00:59, 11 January 2018 (UTC)

Found another reference that says he was 87 years old [11], now I am confused. --- A. L. M. 10:04, 11 February 2018 (UTC)

Template:Marriage only has 3 unnamed parameters[edit]

Hi. Noting that in three recent biography edits, you added a couple of redundant pipes to the {{marriage}} template parameters, example THIS edit. Is there a reason for this, or are you using an editing tool that does that? These are populating the error tracking category Category:Marriage template errors.

Referencing in ITN[edit]

After the Deukmeijian kerfuffle, I looked through your previous nomination, Khaled Mohieddin. I cannot verify most of the references in it, but the one reference I could verify, this one, does not support most of the content you added it for: [12]. Can you please explain what's going on here? You are one of ITN's most prolific contributors: I would really prefer a good explanation over lots of drama. @Killiondude: since you echoed my concerns at the Deukmeijian nomination, I wonder if I could ask your opinion, too. Vanamonde (talk) 05:51, 11 May 2018 (UTC)

And further: I looked through Doina Cornea, which, to my shame, I posted. this does not support the sentence you used it for here. Nor does this. What is going on? Vanamonde (talk) 05:56, 11 May 2018 (UTC)

The nomination before that: "According to a photograph taken at the incident, a man has been arrested by Toronto police officials." Not in the source. Vanamonde (talk) 06:06, 11 May 2018 (UTC)

Yeah, this editing behavior is strange. In this edit you introduced just hours ago, the SF Gate (news wire) source at the end of a phrase about the children, when nothing of the man's progeny is mentioned... Is this an issue of carelessness that is pervasive? Killiondude (talk) 06:27, 11 May 2018 (UTC)
  • @Vanamonde93: & @Killiondude:: I have no clue what is going on. I fact-checked everything and it was time consuming. I searched up the sentence that needed sourcing like example: "Deukmeijian had a strong like for apples" on Google and then the header of the website comes up like "The New York Times" and right under that it has "Gov Deukmeijian loved his apples" in bold which to my pleasure I say "Awesome I found a good content source" and then I place that source to the article. I swear on my left and right foot everything should be content sourced I have no clue what's going on. The Toronto one had a photograph (a screenshot from a Twitter account) of a man being arrested with the caption " police arrested" or somewhere along those lines. The article was still expanding as I created the article and triple checked everything because I didn't want the article tagged so that one I have no clue unless during the expansion I misplaced the source with another sentence as there were conflict edits due to the article being a recent event. I understand the important of content being properly sourced. At the simple english wikipedia I've successfully nominated three article for Good Article status and currently nominated one for featured. I understand the time and effort to find the right source for the right content and that same determination I place in Deukmeijian. I am determined to get this to INT so I'll fix the 1986 even though I swear I saw the content about 10000 votes. If passed or not Deukmeijian will be the last ITN candidate I'll nominate in awhile as I caused disruption to some and I'll focus on the Simple English Wikipedia at the mean time. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 11:50, 11 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Okay, here's my diagnosis. First, you're trying to find sources for stuff already in the article; which is a bit of a problem because it might not be accurate in the first place, and is a good way to fall into the trap of circular referencing. The second, larger, likely problem is that you are relying too much on Google. Google searches for your keywords, and produces results; but those results won't always be relevant, because websites have any number of embedded items, irrelevant information, and whatnot which can cause coincidental matches. That is definitely what has happened with the "100,000 votes" situation, because the article does include information about 100,000 votes; just in a different context, a different year, a different election. Your lesson here is that you absolutely must read the sources before you cite them, and not simply pick them up from a google search. I believe you are acting in good faith, and are unlikely to make this mistake again; but remember, verifiability is a core policy, and even accidental violations may be sanctionable if they keep happening.

File:Koko and Robin.jpg[edit]

Hi, I'm RonBot, a script that checks new non-free file uploads. I have found that the subject image that you recently uploaded was more than 5% in excess of the Non-free content guideline size of 100,000 pixels. I have tagged the image for a standard reduction, which (for jpg/gif/png/svg files) normally happens within a day. Please check the reduced image, and make sure that the image is not excessively corrupted. Other files will be added to Category:Wikipedia non-free file size reduction requests for manual processing. There is a full seven-day period before the original oversized image will be hidden; during that time you might want to consider editing the original image yourself (perhaps an initial crop to allow a smaller reduction or none at all). A formula for calculation the desired size can be found at WP:Image resolution, along with instructions on how to tag the image in the rare cases that it requires an oversized image (typically about 0.2% of non-free uploads are tagged as necessarily oversized). Please contact the bot owner if you have any questions, or you can ask them at Wikipedia talk:Non-free content. RonBot (talk) 17:05, 21 June 2018 (UTC)
