Your rollback request[edit]

Hello! I have granted your account rollback in accordance with your request. Please remember that rollback is for reverting vandalism/spam, and that misuse of the tool, either by revert-warring with other users, or simply reverting edits you disagree with, can lead to it being removed. For practice, you may wish to see Wikipedia:New admin school/Rollback. Good luck. Acalamari 18:13, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

Huggle[edit]

Please be careful when using Huggle not to delete constructive edits like you did here. AstroMark (talk) 12:57, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

Fair enough—that one looked like he was revert-warring, by restoring a previously-rolled-back edit that seemed out of context (given the lack of a picture). I see the history of the problem now. TheFeds 17:26, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

Large numbers[edit]

I edited your change to WP:MOSNUM regarding large numbers, to show that when commas are used as the grouping character, they are only used to the left of the decimal point, not to the right.

Houston Nutt[edit]

please put my thing back how it was. It's common sense and I've heard a few highschool football coaches in Arkansas say it. If you don't like "best of all time" then "one of the best" —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ninjabike matt (talkcontribs) 23:16, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

It's important to write articles using a neutral tone, and base them upon reliable sources. You wrote:

Geographically speaking, Arkansas ranks sixth in the western division of the SEC for overall recruiting base.[citation needed] This, coupled with a 42-38 conference record over 10 years[citation needed] lead many sports historians[who?] to believe Nutt is the best NCAA coach of all time[citation needed].

I've inserted tags where there is a question about the statement. For example, what's the source that says Arkansas is 6th? And when you say "many sports historians", it's a good idea to identify them.
In order to validate those statements, you need to add references to reliable sources. Although it's probably true that you've heard other coaches say Nutt is the best of all time, any reader on Wikipedia ought to (in an ideal article), check every fact against a reference in the list at the end of the page. How would you cite the source if it's just someone with whom you were having a conversation? The best way is to use something like the {{citation}} template (with code that looks like <ref name = "ExampleSource1">{{citation|parameters go here}}</ref>) to reference a journalistic or scholarly source.
For example, is Nutt reported in the media to be the best? Then cite the program and the person who said so. Or has someone analyzed team performance and found that Nutt has the best record under some conditions? Then cite the researcher and the paper.
By the way, you put the information that you added into the "Resignation" section. That is probably the wrong spot, since you didn't say anything about his resignation.
So at this point, I'm not going to restore it, but if you want, go ahead and research the sources and try adding it back with some references. If you need more information about the process, feel free to ask. (Also: I put some information on your talk page with useful links for writing and editing articles. You might find some of it useful.) TheFeds 01:33, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

Gold Glove Award winners' lists[edit]

Hi. I just wanted to note to you that I'm reverting your edits to the leads of these lists. The first paragraphs of these lists are what is known as "boilerplate text". These lists are going to eventually be part of a featured topic, and it's common for lists with a common theme or thread to start in the same way. For an example, see the Silver Slugger Award winners lists. If you have any questions, you can ask me at my talk page. Thanks. KV5 (TalkPhils) 11:43, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

Speedy Deletion Converted to PROD: Tayo Ogidan[edit]

Hello TheFeds, and thanks for your work patrolling new changes. I am just informing you that I have changed a page you tagged (Tayo Ogidan) from being tagged for speedy deletion to being tagged for proposed deletion. The speedy deletion criteria are very narrow to protect the encyclopedia, and do not fit the page in question. Please review the criteria for speedy deletion before tagging further pages. If you have any questions or problems, please let me know. Thanks again! SoWhy 13:43, 21 July 2009 (UTC)

No problem; I was wavering whether to prod it or CSD it, and figured that someone would do what you did if it wasn't fit for A7. I figured that the claims of notability ought to have been substantiated over the two months since creation of the article. After removing those as unsourced BLP material, and finding nothing at all to support even the uncontroversial material, there didn't seem to be anything left, so I elected to CSD. In any event, I doubt it would survive an AfD, if it came to it, but I didn't want to create more work for AfD—there's plenty of backlog there already. TheFeds 22:49, 21 July 2009 (UTC)
I agree with the assumption, but for A7 claims are all that is needed. Missing or non-established notability can only be a reason for deletion via PROD or AFD, hence the conversion. Regards SoWhy 05:59, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

Discussion at Wikipedia:No original research/Noticeboard[edit]

I thought your answer at the Village Pump (policy) regarding calculations was insightful and am hoping you could weigh in at Wikipedia:No original research/Noticeboard regarding the use of calculation software regarding Erdos-Bacon numbers (I'm not all that aware on the specifics). No matter what side you take in that discussion at least it might make everyone think a little harder, as emotions of "I'm right your wrong" are taking over instead of insightful discussion.Camelbinky (talk) 17:51, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

Aberdeen floating village[edit]

Hi Feds! I was posting a comment to User talk:2007693492WONG09 regarding his blanking of Aberdeen floating village apparently at the same time as you were posting your comment. Because you and I were posting to two different sections, it did not create an edit conflict. However, you may wish to look at my comments to see if I have complicated in any way that which you were trying to convey to the editor. By the way, I am not entirely sure that s/he reads his/her talk page since there has been no response to postings there … so far. Thanks! — SpikeToronto 07:40, 18 October 2009 (UTC)

Looks good, Spike; I'll actually make a little edit to pull them into one section and clarify a little. I think about 3 of us saw it and moved in from different angles...someone else also reverted the copy-paste move. TheFeds 07:43, 18 October 2009 (UTC)
As I mentioned in my note to him, I thought perhaps he was trying a WP:CSD#G7 speedy delete, (i.e., {{db-blanked}}). But, while he was the originating author, not all the substantial contributions came solely from his account. But, I have a sinking suspicion that the other account I mentioned in my note to him might also be connected to him since it was created only a half hour later and contributes to the same articles. But, even if true, it’s not necessarily sock puppeting. But, it would be ironic that he could not get the article speedy deleted via WP:CSD#G7 because of the contributions of others, if he is the others! I notice that since I reverted his page blanking, the only editor working on the article is himself, the same editor that blanked it.

I was completely unaware of the stuff that you mentioned in your post to his talk page. I only saw the page blanking in Aberdeen floating village because it showed up in my Huggle screen. How were you made aware of the copy and paste operations? — SpikeToronto 07:56, 18 October 2009 (UTC)

P.S. Liked your consolidation and revision of our comments. — SpikeToronto 07:58, 18 October 2009 (UTC)
I checked his contributions, because I was curious what was going on—after all, he wrote most of that article, and it was pretty good, why would he suddenly want to delete it? And sure enough, he was moving it back to its old title (which Olivier had changed previously). As that was happening, Anakin101 stepped in and reverted the copy-paste move (which I was contemplating doing). So all that was left was to try to piece it back together on his talk page.... Thanks for the assistance! TheFeds 08:00, 18 October 2009 (UTC)

wiki of cvr college of engineering[edit]

hello, I am a student of cvr college of Engineering and the page I created for cvr is : cvr college of engineering

I have taken all permissions from the chairman/principal/governing council to create a page in Wikipedia to use our college images in the page directly for our web-siteAs I am not familiar using Wikipedia I need some help I have given most of the content that i can give but Wikipedia shows "This article does not cite any references or sources. Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed. (October 2009)

This article may require cleanup to meet Wikipedia's quality standards. Please improve this article if you can.

This article may not meet the notability guidelines for companies and organizations. Please help to establish notability by adding reliable, secondary sources about the topic. If notability cannot be established, the article is likely to be merged or deleted. "

I kindly request you to have some thing done to not display these lines as I have done what I can,If possible please try to improve my article so that it does not show these lines,you can use data from The official college web-site ,I have taken all permission from our chairman.

Thanks in advance (Megaposiedon (talk) 12:55, 18 October 2009 (UTC))

Regarding the images, there is a way to confirm that you have permission. Please follow the procedure at WP:CONSENT and have the official representative of the copyright holder send an e-mail using that form to the OTRS e-mail address, granting permission to use the picture under a free licence. (Because that image is the same as one published on the school's website, we have to assume that the school owns the copyright; therefore, only someone who officially represents the school can give this permission.) It is possible that the school will not allow this; in that case, it is unlikely that Wikipedia will be able to use the image, because of copyright laws.
Regarding the tags for improvement, please be aware that those are a standard feature of many Wikipedia articles that need improvement, and should only be removed if the concerns expressed there are no longer valid.
The first tag warns readers that there is some question about the notability of the subject—basically, we need you or another editor to provide evidence that CVR College is a notable institution. The usual way to do this is to demonstrate that there has been significant coverage of CVR College by independent sources (like in the news, or by trade publications). Also, you've made reference to an accreditation organization, but I can't find your school on their list. (Is this the same as C.V.S.R. College of Engineering?) If you can cite a reliable source to verify all of this, that would be ideal.
The next tag states that this article has no references. Again, please cite sources independent of the school to verify major facts about the institution, and cite the school's documentation for things like staff details and course contents.
The final tag just states that the style of the article needs improvement. Wikipedia has lots of guidelines regarding article formatting; please see the manual of style for examples. I already cleaned some of it up, but there's still a lot more do be done. If you look to featured articles like Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, you can see examples of what the best format for an engineering college's article might be.

Allied Artists International[edit]

Allied Artists International and Senior Abuse of a 93 year old, computer illiterate man at Wikipedia[edit]

Allied Artists International and Senior Abuse of a 93 year old, computer illiterate man at Wikipedia

  • I am a relatively inexperienced editor of articles about China. Louis Lesser is a historic business figure in China, who was instrumental in opening it up.
  • Louis Lesser is now 93 years old man and is computer illiterate.
  • Kimball Dean Richards has a criminal record that includes so many crimes over the past twenty years that he has been identified as a “Master Criminal” by the FBI, was sentenced to 20 years for bank fraud, mail fraud, an wire fraud in about 1990, and plea bargained after he solicited the MURDER of one of his own employees, tapped the phones of the Sheriff’s office in order to pre-warn drug dealers of impending searches, and was extradited to Arizona for still more criminal charges.
  • WarriorBoy is an editor who only writes articles that promote ALlied Artists International.
  • By allowing the vandalism of reliably sourced content, from LA Times, federal court records, etc., WarriorBoy and the Consolidated Allies gang are linking a beloved 93 year old man with a Master Criminal, in order to profit from his computer illiteracy, and use the name of his company by forming similarly named companies. —Preceding unsigned comment added by ChinaUpdater (talkcontribs) 21:09, 18 October 2009 (UTC)

Your comment about the hidden text, Comments not related to AfD issues (by 75.84.158.222, ChinaUser and 99.166.95.142) are hidden below. appears incorrect. It looks to me as if 99.166.95.142's is very much about the AfC. Who then was a gentleman? (talk) 20:54, 20 October 2009 (UTC)

I moved it along with ChinaUpdater's ranting and accusations of sockpuppetry, because he seemed to be addressing ChinaUpdater. Please feel free to move it back or change the heading if you think it's warranted, but I think 99.166.95.142's comment was meant to advise ChinaUpdater to get back on topic, rather than weigh in on the substance of the AfD. TheFeds 20:59, 20 October 2009 (UTC)
OK, I see what your comments mean. Yeah, he/she did seem to be addressing ChinaUpdater. BTW, I'm staying out of this, I've warned ChinaUpdater and warned him/her, but there's a bee in their bonnet about this subject, they're way beyond BLP violations with this, and they won't let it go.

Sockpuppetry Accusation, Major Fraud at Wikipedia, just like in the Federal Conviciotns using the same methods[edit]

Sockpuppetry Accusation, Major Fraud at Wikipedia, just like in the Federal Conviciotns using the same methods

  • I have seen enough, as of this, - [1] –, which when coupled with the massive other edits by WarriorBoy85, all overtly NN ADVERTs, all NRS, and all COI and POV, to make the following accusations.
  • I accuse WP:WarriorBoy85 and WP:TechnicalExpertise of being Sockpuppets for Kimball Dean Richards. I dont care about his overt legal threats, or his history of Solicitation for Murder here [2].

Kim Richards, CEO of Allied Artists International, by WarriorBoy85’s own original edit of his side bar, is one and the same as Kimball Dean Richards, who was named, indicted, and convicted of Major Fraud using these names and associated names.

  • ALL of the HUNDREDS of Wikipedia entries are nothing more than ADVERTising for Allied Artists International and its "artists" should be deleted on NN, and NRS, COI, POV, as well as SP.
  • All of the HUNDREDS of entries, such as “artists” web sites, and redirects, done by WarriorBoy85 and TechnicalExpert should be undone by high ranking Admins, and let the rest of us low level folks get back to our far more simple editing work.ChinaUpdater (talk) 17:30, 20 October 2009 (UTC)

Slow Down and Reconsider[edit]

Look HERE [7]. You will see Allied Artists Pictures Corporation, the REAL movie company STILL EXISTS.

  • Kimbal Dean Richards is trying to pull the same fraud using WIkipedia, that he pulled in the federal case, where The (real) Feds got him, by trying to make people think he is Allied Artists Pictures Corporation, [8], when he is not, by using musleadingly similar names, and finding freed up trademarks and things that enter the public domain.
  • I had never heard of any of this before a few days ago. In fact, I thought the name was Allied Artists MOTION Picture Company, a different name entirely, and I cretainly never heard of this RIchards guy.
  • I Suspect that he is trying to sell stock in his company, using the HUGE number of Wikipedia pages he created, based on NOTABILITY, all linked to a company he does not own, Allied Artists Pictures Corporation, [9].
  • The Feds, please reconsider that there may be a plot to buy similar names to Allied Artists Pictures Corporation in order to use Wikipedia to mislead people into thinking Kimball Dean Richards' companies, all with similar names, are the same as the EXISTING company. Please reconsider your vote to keep. If anything, Allied Artists International, which WarriorBoy wrote is a name change from Kimball Dean Richards' Allied Artists Records, and is linked as the same by WarriorBoy, should have mention in an article on Kimball Dean Richards, who his biggest notariety by being convicted of doing exactly the same thing on WIkipedia, as Richards did in the federal fraud case, misleading people into thinking he was the movie company, which still exists.

  • Because of KDR's past "solicitation to commit murder", and other crimes to further his Allied Artist misrepresenations, I do not feel comfortable with giving my email, as I know from personal experience that there are problems with at least two admins related to something else entirely.

Hi. Regarding your request at WP:REFUND#User_talk:CWii, please see my reply there. Is there something specific that you are looking for that I can help you find short of restoring the page? The user in question is currently under 18, so I'm extremely hesitant to restore the page unless absolutely necessary. I don't see any evidence of why it was deleted (in other words, I don't see a public request), but if the user had emailed Tanthalas39 privately, I doubt he/she is going to be much help. Tanthalas39 committed the cardinal sin of a self-unblock and was indefblocked shortly thereafter. I haven't closed the request - another admin might look at it and feel differently - but I just have a strong preference to preserve a user or former user's privacy, particularly when they are underage. --B (talk) 16:20, 11 June 2010 (UTC)

Reviewer granted[edit]

Redaktor Wikipedia 600px.png

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, will be commencing a two-month trial at approximately 23:00, 2010 June 15 (UTC).

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under flagged protection. Flagged protection is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. ···日本穣? · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WikiProject Japan! 06:20, 16 June 2010 (UTC)

The {val} template no longer works correctly[edit]

Please see the Template talk:Val#Val is now screwed up. There have been one or more recent edits that totally fouled up the function of the {{val}} template. Greg L (talk) 17:00, 25 November 2010 (UTC)

Update User:Martin fixed the spacing issue but left the issue of having a single hanging digit to between me and User:Verdy p. At User talk:Verdy p#Val template, you will see my response to him. But in a nutshell, he is way-wrong on this and I hope you keep an eye on how things progress on the Template talk:Val#Val is now screwed up-page. In a nutshell, my response to Verdy p was as follows:

Please see Template talk:Val is now screwed up. In a nutshell, the BIPM and the NIST and every other standards organization uses a last group of four digits so as to never leave a single hanging digit. By wide consensus, Wikipedia follows that practice and does not want a house style that flouts international conventions. Links are provided on the page.

Greg L (talk) 18:43, 25 November 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads-up Greg; I've recently been inactive on Wikipedia due to other commitments, and at this point, I don't want to insert myself in whatever controversy might remain. TheFeds 17:51, 19 December 2010 (UTC)

Help?[edit]

Seems you were involved in the ChinaUpdate/WarriorBoy dispute back in 2009 over the Richard Rooks/Kimball Dean Richard disputes around Allied Artists Pictures/Allied Artists International. It's back, kind of. Would you mind giving a look or a quick overview? Cheers, Ocaasi c 20:14, 8 April 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Mercedes 35 hp, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Power (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.

Ancestry.com[edit]

Hi. Having previously been involved in a discussion about Ancestry.com on RSN, could you join a discussion here to offer your opinion? A user is saying that some of the material on that site is not from users, but paid employees, and WP:BLPPRIMARY is also an issue. Thanks. Nightscream (talk) 09:35, 7 August 2012 (UTC)

Your edit to "Tropical year"[edit]

You removed an edit notice from the tropical year, saying that it was a malformed edit notice being used as a cleanup tag. I have restored the edit notice because I don't understand your edit summary.

I do notice that the template isn't actually producing an edit notice, but I believe that was the intent, and I suggest you ask on the talk page of the template for it to be fixed. If no one knows how or no one is interested, I would then suggest you put it up for deletion. I believe if the template were working properly it would be useful. Jc3s5h (talk) 13:21, 5 September 2012 (UTC)

I have put a repair request on the template's talk page and on the talk page of the editor who created it. Jc3s5h (talk) 13:26, 5 September 2012 (UTC)
To clarify (and I think you discovered this independently, judging by this summary), the editnotice only works if you put it on the appropriate subpage /Editnotice. (For example, check out the editnotice on my talk page; it has a link labelled "Page notice" to the page that generates it.) But yes, an administrator is needed to make it work, presumably to avoid people putting random garish editnotices everywhere.

My impression of the tag was that it was being used like something from WP:TC, but with an incorrect template for the job. The cleanup templates are (at least in principle) temporary, and would be removed once the issue is resolved. The item in question was worded as a permanent notice. I said the editnotice template transclusion is malformed because it's not generating an editnotice—but more to the point, the place it's been inserted is the problem, rather than an issue with the template code itself.

Greetings, TheFeds. I think the above disambiguation goes more properly to Chatham-Kent, but I'll leave this for you to confirm. I wanted to let you know that I did a review of the DYK for Huronia Regional Centre, which is almost but not quite ready to go, due to a little hairsplitting on my part. Thank you for your work on the article. groupuscule (talk) 01:10, 15 October 2013 (UTC)
Chatham-Kent is the correct region, per this. I debated whether to link to Cedar Springs, Ontario in the hopes of an article being created in the future, or just leaving it out. I'm amending the text. TheFeds 06:06, 22 October 2013 (UTC)

List of mayors of Old Toronto[edit]

Hello, TheFeds, and thank you for your contributions!

Some text in an article that you worked on List of mayors of Old Toronto, appears to be directly copied from another Wikipedia article, List of mayors of Toronto. Please take a minute to double-check that you've properly attributed the source text in your edit summary.

It's entirely possible that this bot made a mistake, so please feel free to remove this notice and the tag it placed on List of mayors of Old Toronto at any time. MadmanBot (talk) 09:17, 8 November 2013 (UTC)

Bot was too fast; split was in progress between two article titles. Oldid was attributed. TheFeds 09:28, 8 November 2013 (UTC)

Possible removal of AWB access due to inactivity[edit]

Hello! There is currently a request for approval of a bot to manage the AutoWikiBrowser CheckPage by removing inactive users, among other tasks. You are being contacted because you may qualify as an inactive user of AWB. First, if you have any input on the proposed bot task, please feel free to comment at the BRFA. Should the bot task be approved, your access to AWB may be uncontroversially removed if you do not resume editing within a week's time. This is purely for routine maintenance of the CheckPage, and is not indicative of wrongdoing on your part. You will be able regain access at any time by simply requesting it at WP:PERM/AWB. Thank you! MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 23:36, 8 November 2016 (UTC)

I think I might as well keep AWB access for now, so here's an edit to memorialize that. TheFeds 09:43, 11 November 2016 (UTC)
