I found an article that was created in 2006. When I looked at the subject's website in an archive dated before the article's creation, the text is identical to the article. The current website, having none of the same text, has a copyright notice. Can I tag the article for speedy deletion?

TheGGoose (talk) 20:08, 9 December 2014 (UTC)

Yes, add {{Db-g12|url=source URL}} to the top of the page, replacing "Source URL" with the URL of the page you found the copyrighted material. Primefac (talk) 20:27, 9 December 2014 (UTC)

I found an article with text copied from its official website. The text was in the article since its creation and is currently comprised of half the article. It had comprised over half of the article in creation. The article today also has lead text that's not infringing. Should the article be speedy-deleted or have the infringing section removed instead?

TheGGoose (talk) 17:56, 13 December 2014 (UTC)

It depends on the state of the article etc. Can you link it here please, or say what the name of it is? (tJosve05a (c) 18:06, 13 December 2014 (UTC)
(edit conflict)Hmmm.... sounds complex. The best way forward is probably to use {{copyvio}}, and follow the instructions, to get wider attention on the article. --Mdann52talk to me! 18:08, 13 December 2014 (UTC)

The article Hutson (album) has a short review copied from this link. Is it a potential copyright violation? TheGGoose (talk) 17:04, 30 December 2014 (UTC)

TheGGoose (talk) 17:04, 30 December 2014 (UTC)

Yes. Copying the AllMusic review in its entirety is an unambiguous copyright violation. I'll deal with it in a moment. Huon (talk) 17:58, 30 December 2014 (UTC)

I just discovered that the fact I removed in the article Coopersville, Clinton County, New York is genuine. But I guess no reliable source exists for this fact. Should the fact be restored? TheGGoose (talk) 15:17, 29 January 2015 (UTC)

Agentmike41 (talk) 01:45, 31 January 2015 (UTC)Ok I recently recreated a page of SantApprentice using my own words this time. Also I fix the Synopsis of The Mysteries of Alfred Hedgehog and The Green Squad and removed The Green Squad Poster out. I will fix Matt's Monsters Synopsis with paraphrasing.

TheGGoose (talk) 15:17, 29 January 2015 (UTC)

TheGGoose, if there are no reliable sources that discuss the "fact," then it should not be included. You did the right thing. Primefac (talk) 15:34, 29 January 2015 (UTC)

I'm looking for a tool that displays all pages I edited, without using my contributions pages.

TheGGoose (talk) 16:52, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

Consider "Proposed deletion"[edit]

Earlier today you nominated several pages for deletion at WP:Articles for deletion ("AFD"). Some of these, like The Haunted Woods, are so unlikely to be opposed that it would be more efficient to use the "light-weight" WP:Proposed deletion ("PROD") process instead of the AFD process.

With "PROD", if nobody objects, it gets deleted in a week. With AFD, if nobody participates in the discussion, it gets re-listed and maybe re-re-listed and eventually after 2 or 3 weeks it gets "soft-deleted," which is the same as a "PROD" deletion in that if anyone asks it to be un-deleted, it will be un-deleted without having to go through a WP:Deletion review.

I'm not asking you to undo your existing nominations, I'm just saying you can probably get faster results in the future by using PROD for anything that doesn't stand a snowball's chance in Hades of surviving AFD in its current state and which is extremely unlikely to be improved during an AFD discussion.

Also, for biographies of living people which have zero references at all and which aren't so old to be "grandfathered in," WP:BLPPROD may be the way to go. You can use BLPPROD and PROD at the same time. You can also use AFD and BLPPROD at the same time. You can't use PROD and AFD at the same time though. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs) 19:40, 30 August 2015 (UTC)

@Davidwr: Thanks, I will consider proposed deletions in the future. TheGGoose (talk) 23:29, 30 August 2015 (UTC)
Hello and thanks for patrolling! I simply to wanted to note that I sourced an article you recently speedied, Oreste Migliaccio, although those are the only available sources I could find but it suffices for now. Cheers! SwisterTwister talk 05:55, 7 September 2015 (UTC)

I just edited the Kumabito article, adding a Google Books reference generated from here. I made a reference section and a reflist tag, but there is a smaller copy of each seen in the article. I never saw this before. How can it be fixed?

TheGGoose (talk) 13:58, 9 September 2015 (UTC)

TheGGoose, you missed the > in your </ref> tag, so the reference was never properly closed. I've fixed the issue. Primefac (talk) 15:48, 9 September 2015 (UTC)

Deprod[edit]

I have removed the {{prod}} tag from Colorado River Log, 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.

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process.

This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

I converted an article, shortline railroad, into a redirect to Railroad classes#Class III. I now believe this redirect is inappropriate because "shortline railroad" does not always refer to a class III railroad; it could also include class II railroads (according to the shortline railroad article before it became a redirect). Some sources claim that class II railroads can be shortlines. What can I do to resolve this possible issue, reverting it back to an article?

TheGGoose (talk) 16:50, 8 April 2016 (UTC)

Hi. To reverse your redirect of the article, you could revert it back to a previous version. If you go to the page history for Shoreline railroad, you'll see each previous version. If you click on the timestamp of the version you want to revert to, it will bring you to that version. You can then click "edit" just like you would on a normal page. This will have you editing the page as it was at the time of the previous version. You can simply save it, to restore the previous version, or you can make your own edits and submit them.

In The Muppets Celebrate Jim Henson, the release date as said in the infobox is September 11, 1990, this is the incorrect date. The correct date is November 21, 1990. However, I'm having trouble finding the September date in the edit; for me, it appears to be set for the November date.

TheGGoose (talk) 00:08, 26 April 2016 (UTC)

{{start date}} uses YYYY/MM/DD, or 1990/11/21, but someone put it in the other way, so it defaulted to "11" as being the only valid date. I've fixed the issue. Primefac (talk) 00:37, 26 April 2016 (UTC)

I was adding a song/album named "Black Jack", which I included a link to the artist Christian Baciotti, to the Black Jack disambiguation page. However, an editor kept reverting it, even though it is stated in the Baciotti article that Black Jack is described as a song and an album. (I edited that article after his last revert) Is the article currently illegible or not to be added to the disambiguation? I might be following MOS:DABMENTION.

TheGGoose (talk) 04:02, 9 May 2016 (UTC)

Hello, I would add it again since it is mentioned at Christian's article. I can add it if need be also. SwisterTwister talk 04:33, 9 May 2016 (UTC)

I noticed in a railroad article that information relating to a collision was removed without a good edit explanation. The incident was widely reported in external sources. Are there grounds for reverting the edit?

TheGGoose (talk) 20:58, 3 January 2017 (UTC)

If a user removes sourced information (where the source is reliable) without explanation, then it is acceptable to revert them. Please make sure you mention this in your edit summary, and remember to always assume good faith (they may think they're doing the right thing). Also remember that if they counter-revert you, that you should start a discussion on the talk page and invite them to explain why they have removed the related text. If you want more help, change the {{help me-helped}} back into a {{help me}}, stop by the Teahouse, Wikipedia's live help channel, or the help desk to ask someone for assistance. Primefac (talk) 21:16, 3 January 2017 (UTC)
