Deletion of Saint-Gobain, Bearings and Tolerance Rings SBU[edit]


I just noticed that you deleted the article above a few hours after it was tagged. I would like to differ with the opinion of the nom that this is an advertisement or promotional article. Considering that this is a multinational organization and that has the necessary coverage required to meet Wikipedia's notability. I would like to access the sources I had used therein, moving that to my sandbox would be helpful. TIA TushiTalk To Me 02:21, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

I've restored the whole thing and moved it to a sandbox for you, you can find it at User:Kagundu/Saint-Gobain, Bearings and Tolerance Rings SBU. If it makes you feel better, I was on the fence about this one, but deleted it after I got to the section titled NORGLIDE® Bearings, as I thought at that point it has gotten too advertisy. Good luck with the rework. (Also, on an unrelated note, you've got a very nice userpage.)
Thanks. I think the issue about the tone and phrases that incline towards advertising can be addressed to make the article fully compliant to policy. Let me work on it and probably ask for your scrutiny before republishing. Thanks TushiTalk To Me 09:32, 24 June 2016 (UTC)
Kagundu, G11 applies in userspace also, though our tolerane is greater. At the least, as already mentioned the section on NORGLIDE® is advertising; we never use the ® symbol and almost never put names of products in full caps regardless of what the manufacturer does; lists of manufacturing sites and the like are of dubious encyclopedic significance; the section on REMCOL seems a very close paraphrase from the SAE source, which is not surprising considering that the source is a barely disguised press release in the first place. Please either clean it up or I will list it for deletion. DGG ( talk ) 08:09, 28 June 2016 (UTC)
I am working on the article to rid it off the advertisement kind of wording. Also I would like to invite you DGG to assist me in working on the article to improve it to required standard even though it lives on my userspace.TushiTalk To Me 13:47, 28 June 2016 (UTC)

WWI directory and Bugle articles[edit]

Hi there. You may have already seen my note on the MilHist talk page, but I am sending this short note to the regular writers and the editors of The Bugle to point them to a WWI projects directory that I've started (in my userspace for now). Would you be able to look and see if there is anything you might be able to add or advice on what is most useful? You'll note that I've pulled together all your timeline articles (which are wonderful, along with the op-eds). Maybe a proper index on the archive page of The Bugle would be useful, plus links allowing readers to navigate through the series?

Priceblaze Speedy Review[edit]

Hello Tom, I read the message that the page is promotional. I do not understand. Wikipedia says that if it is an entity and it exists in the market it can become part of it. Right? I have also added the references needed for the page. Plus can you point our what exactly are the promotions that are in the content so I can remove them?

I would like to make changes so the article doesn't get deleted. Is there any possibility for that? Thanks Sharjeelashraf (talk) 11:45, 19 July 2016 (UTC)

PSK-13 page[edit]

Hey, was just wondering,

You haven't deleted my page that I've worked on but it's nominated for speedy deletion. Which I think is unfair.

The reason being, is that the artist is notable enough. I've got a few sources on him and I can find more. He's a legendary artist from Houston and has worked with bigger name artists. Also, there are other artists who have wikipedia pages that don't even have as many/good references as him.

Is there any way you can keep my page from being deleted?


Jespon (talk) 07:15, 22 July 2016 (UTC)

What could I do to ensure that it doesn't get deleted? I don't see why PSK-13 can't have a page if Ganksta NIP has one. He's another rapper from Houston with only like 4 references.

Hi TomStar81, I appreciate your suggestions. It is really great to learn from you. I am excited that I am learning something new. Though my first experience was not good as I didn't read the guideline first. But now I am understanding what is Wikipedia! So much to learn from here.

deleted page- Semir Bajraktarević[edit]

Hi TomStar81,

I received a message that my page is deleted from you.

site that I made is about a Bosnia-Herzegovina football player, who is a public figure and athletes in our country, and that's why I thought he should have a page on Wikipedia. I will attached you several articles related to Semira Bajraktarević to get you convinced that he deserves to be on Wikipedia.

I hope my page will be returned to the still further refined.

Deletion of Odd Lot Improv[edit]


I see that you've deleted the page Odd Lot Improv after it was tagged with the Speedy Deletion notice. If it's not too much trouble, I would like to know the exact reasons to this. I did not understand the necessity for the tag, so any information would be helpful moving forward. Mokomus (talk) 15:16, 6 August 2016 (UTC)


HI TomStar,

Can you please give this user a harder block? Based on their editing habits, they have been attacking other editors and have claimed to have administrative authority. They are clearly WP:NOTHERE.

help with wiki[edit]

Hi Tom Hope this finds you well. Here's the thing with this wiki I created, all references are from reliable sources with links to sites provided, all info are relevant from the sources. I don't know what's the reason it has been marked for deletion. If it's not too much trouble, Can you please help take a look? I did not understand the tag.

I've received messages from wiki editors, they asked me to pay them in order to get the wiki kept on or elsewise they'll get it removed. I also see that they've been "contributing" in getting the wiki page deleted, I don't think that's how wiki should work. would be great if you can help with this issue. many thanks.

I also have very deep interest in web programming, web-mastering staff, new technologies. I guess you are from military background , right ? I do have interest in war history. I learned this from movies namely The_Pianist_(2002_film), Schindler's_List, Inglourious_Basterds,The_Boy_in_the_Striped_Pyjamas_(film), Grave_of_the_Fireflies, The_Way_Back, Forrest_Gump and many more.

Block message at User talk:Citic telecom cpc[edit]

You hard-blocked the editor, but gave only a username block message on the talk page. Was this a mistake? There are two features of the message which don't seem to fit the block: (1) the block message says "Your username is the only reason for this block", but in that case there is no justification for disabling account creation, and (2) the block message says "You are encouraged to choose a new account name that meets our policy guidelines and create the account yourself", but the editor can't do that, as you disabled account creation. In my opinion, the block was perfectly correct, but in the context of that block the block message makes no sense. The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 19:57, 17 August 2016 (UTC)

The Signpost: 18 August 2016[edit]


Well that explains alot! I kept looking for an SPI page to compare to and when I couldn't find one I figured I'd just ask at the ANI post, when that evaporated I assumed there was a good reason for it, and so it does appear there is. I'm glad that little voice in my head told me to wait until I heard from both parties before drawing any conclusions. On that note, if this is going to be a problem, I can semi-protect the relevant pages for a couple of days/weeks so you and yours can get some piece. From the looks of things you do appear to need it... TomStar81 (Talk) 08:13, 20 August 2016 (UTC)

Why did you say you'd heard from both sides? You haven't spoken to me, ever. i am not banned or blocked, but this pal of yours is reverting every edit I make, just for fun apparently. if you're going to protect the pages to reinforce their vandalism, then shame on you. shame on you. (talk) 08:22, 20 August 2016 (UTC)
And so you did. That is just ridiculous. Put my post back at the noticeboard please. (talk) 08:23, 20 August 2016 (UTC)
Actually, you're blocked at, so now we can add lying to your repertoire. Alex|The|Whovian? 08:25, 20 August 2016 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────I did review your edits and diffs at the ANI page before taking any action because that is something I am obliged to do under WP:AGF. Frankly I find no puritans in this matter, however this constant wheel warring needs to stop. That's why I put up protection on both pages, and may be adding to that list momentarily. And shame is something I have shouldered for a great many years, so adding a little more isn't going to kill me. As for you, my ip editing amigo, you look a little too eager to jump in and edit, and a little too quick on the revert trigger. You do show some progress in electing to discuss the matters at hand, and that is good for all parties (in fact you should be commended for that), but actions speak louder than words and in this case all those reverts are not doing you any good.

Need Suggestion[edit]

Hi, I hope you are fine. I am little struggling with work/job related staff that's why not visiting Wikipedia regularly. Nevertheless, I saw that one my favorite movie The Pianist has a flag for 'needs additional citations for verification'. So I tried to add relevant citation. Do you think the flag can be removed now ? Another thing I would like to mention regarding this link - Reverted to revision. Why the comment is 'This isn't the place for film recommendations.' for See also section. At least the movie Schindler's List looks relevant to me - Anatomy of a Masterpiece __RbABC (talk) 04:53, 4 September 2016 (UTC)


TomStar81, I assume I don't need to reintroduce myself. I contact you today because I believe I may have mislead you when being vitriol towards other Wikipedia users. And I apologize for that. I attempt to try other methods to improving Wikipedia. My main goal is to bring a golden age to Wikipedia. So you can cross me off WP:NOTHERE.

Deletion of Rajkumar Misra[edit]

Hi, This morning I noticed that you have deleted the page Rajkumar Misra. I don't agree with the reason that the importance of the subject is not enough. Rajkumar Misra is one of the reputed artist and Tabla teacher based in London. He is resident faculty at The Bhavan, London dedicated to preserve Indian Art & Culture. He has been teaching & performing Tabla for more than 30 years in India, UK and other parts of the world. He has performed at major Indian cultural / musical festivals as a solo or accompanying performer. He accompanied legends like Pandit Vishwa Mohan Bhatt, Ustad Shahid Parvez etc. He belongs to a family of reowned muscial lineage and his family - wife, daughter, sister all are reowned in their field of music. He recently completed the tour of India where is performed solo & accompanied at major cities like Kolkata, Jaipur, Delhi & Chandigarh. Just to highlight his importance and mastery of the subject, he performed for The Queen at Buckingham Palace in 2005. He will performing with Pandit Vishwa Mohan Bhatt on 1st & 2nd Oct 2016 at Liverpool and London respectively. Please advise and guide me towards the next steps. I created this page not to advertise or glorify Rajkumar Misra but to highlight the work he is doing towards the field of Tabla to preserve and pass on the know to next generations. Thanks. Ashutosh.

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, TomStar81. This message is intended to notify administrators of important changes to the protection policy.

Extended confirmed protection (also known as "30/500 protection") is a new level of page protection that only allows edits from accounts at least 30 days old and with 500 edits. The automatically assigned "extended confirmed" user right was created for this purpose. The protection level was created following this community discussion with the primary intention of enforcing various arbitration remedies that prohibited editors under the "30 days/500 edits" threshold to edit certain topic areas.

In July and August 2016, a request for comment established consensus for community use of the new protection level. Administrators are authorized to apply extended confirmed protection to combat any form of disruption (e.g. vandalism, sock puppetry, edit warring, etc.) on any topic, subject to the following conditions:

  • Extended confirmed protection may only be used in cases where semi-protection has proven ineffective. It should not be used as a first resort.
  • A bot will post a notification at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard of each use. MusikBot currently does this by updating a report, which is transcluded onto the noticeboard.
Please review the protection policy carefully before using this new level of protection on pages. Thank you.
This message was sent to the administrators' mass message list. To opt-out of future messages, please remove yourself from the list. 17:49, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

2605:A601:F203:3400:9D1A:5964:6ECB:F50D (talk) 13:25, 26 September 2016 (UTC)Clint Sears

In all honesty, I am Clint Sears, and the reason I care about having a wiki is that the last nine months of my life have been creating an immersive theater piece that won't show up on my IMDB, so I thought wiki might be a nice place to hold that credit. The recourses on my page were real. Any tips on how to keep my page up? Thank you for any and all help you might have.

The sad truth of the matter is that at present there isn't enough information to justify having a page for Clint Sears. Ordinarily, to justify having a page here, a person needs to have won a major award (like a Nobel prize), changed the world with some new idea or theorem (such as the E=mc2 theorem), served or been president of a major nation, corporation, etc, or otherwise already be fabulously famous before they can get a page here. Clint Sears is therefore by this bar ineligible for inclusion on the present time. This is a case of what Wikipedians call WP:TOOSOON: there is a potential that one day the person in question will warrant having an independent article on site, but right now there is insufficient notability to justify the creation of an article for the person at present. The best I could do for you under the circumstances would be to userfy the article, but as there is no account associated with it at the moment I would have no place to put it, which means I can not entertain the idea of un-deletion at the moment. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, its just the hand that we were both dealt at the moment. TomStar81 (Talk) 23:11, 26 September 2016 (UTC)[edit]

Hi TomStar81, thank you for your helpful link about article deletion with reference to: I will post in the article's discussion page ( about why I believe this is a valid entry. I'm new to this so I hope to be able to persuade the community of my points!

I would just ask one question of you, if I may... Stratajet is a similar business model to the likes of but launched more recently. Stratajet has had a significant impact on the private aviation industry from a business perspective in the last six months and is now fully operational across Europe and the U.S. - with access to more aircraft than the PrivateFly offering. As such, is there a specific Stratajet proposition that can be referenced to make it compare to PrivateFly? e.g. level of funding, number of available aircraft, number of airfields covered, etc, etc. I appreciate your advice and look forward to hearing from you.

Hi, The Whatculture Pro Wrestling Page was deleted this morning for not having notability. I'll say now it wasn't my page, but I did a lot of work on it. As this promotion is growing quickly ([[3]] puts it at 98,500 subscribers, and it has gained those in 3 months) it is having a huge impact on the British Wrestling scene. While I am hunting more cites, most will be obviously be on British and Indie Wrestling news sites.

The problem with notability is that this promotion is young, so it is notable for news breaking at the moment e.g. this morning I got up to find they had launched a subscription service which in the UK will show Loaded at the same time as TNA on Fridays nights, and for the conflict going on with local promotions. (I am a fan, but I am trying to be even-handed which is why I added sections about the commentary problems and the underselling ticket price claims. Their effect on the regional promotion where I live has been mixed). Is it possible to restore the page, pending a check in a month that it is still notable once the London territory controversy has been resolved and the effects are known? Thanks for reading. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Readslots (talkcontribs) 08:03, 30 September 2016 (UTC)

@Readslots: There is already a draft present here. I saw what was there on the main space article and it was written totally as an advertisement, and that was why it was deleted - not notability. You'd be better off working on the draft, and remember the rules of sourcing (no You Tube and independent reliable sourcing) and the rules of advertising (the page is about the promotion and not about it's storylines and so forth).

The discussion is at GAR:Joachim Helbig, with the goal to reach a consensus whether the article satisfies the good article criteria. Any input would be welcome. K.e.coffman (talk) 23:51, 30 September 2016 (UTC)


This has been deleted and locked by admins long time ago. But a lot has changed since then. CupcakKe currently has her own issue of Fader Magazine. A very well known magazine usually making issues with high profile celebrities. You can check her interview and see it for yourself.

She also has been covered on known magazines such as Paper Mag, Complex Mag, Rolling Stones. I think she meets the "Has been the subject of multiple, non-trivial, published works appearing in sources that are reliable, not self-published, and are independent of the musician or ensemble itself." criteria and deserves her own page. Thanks.

None of which demonstrate even the tiniest bit of notability under its Wikipedia-based definition. Now when CupcakKe has won an academy award, or a Nobel prize, or gotten 500 chart topping hits, or so forth in that manner then we can entertain the idea of having an article for the artist here. Until then, this repeated attempt to add CupcakKe here are likely going to be construed as anything from a misguided attempt to help to vandalism for repeatedly recreating material the community has decided doesn't have a place here at the moment.

Chris Schambacher Wikipedia Page[edit]

Good Morning TomStar81,

The following Wikipedia page for Chris Schambacher has been deleted. If possible could deletion please be reconsidered? Chris is a highly recognized global music producer and DJ in the electronic music scene. He's had global TV, Radio and Media Coverage. Currently tours over 100 shows worldwide including major festivals. He appeared on Above & Beyond's Group Therapy Episode 160 to 25 Million viewers in over 30 countries. His music has charted more than 34 days on Beatport's Top 100 releases. He has a major product endorsement with JLab Audio with his signature headphones sold worldwide in stores such as Target and Best Buy. He's shared the stage with major artists such as Tiesto, Cosmic Gate, Porter Robinson, BT, actor Ansel Elgort (Ansolo) & more. He currently has a following of more than 54,000 fans on Facebook, and over 100,000 streams on Spotify. I've included some more links about Chris. Thank you for the possible consideration and for willing to review deleted submissions.

  • None of which demonstrates notability by Wikipedia standards. In order for Chris to stay here on Wikipedia he needs to have won a Grammy, or an Oscar, or a Nobel Prize, or had a well documented impact on music by creating a whole new genre, or something else internationally ground shaking. Having a product endorsement doesn't cut it, and the references provided are not up to a standard whereby they could establish notability for Chris. Also, when discussing people on Wikipedia in a "please let them stay" sense, you never want to bring up facebook, or instagram, or twitter, or my space, or spotify, or so forth in that manner because the second the admin corps lays eyes on that its an instant red flag that the person is only out to advertise for themselves or to misuse Wikipedia as a web host or social media site. Now if you want, I can restore the page to the draft space, where you can work on the article under the watchful eyes people who know what an article that can remain on Wikipedia looks like and can help guide you to that point. Alternatively, I can restore the article to the article space, but I am then obliged to nominate it for deletion as the issues in the article need to be addressed. Finally, you can always start over from scratch and rebuild the article to address it's previous issues. Your call. TomStar81 (Talk) 22:40, 13 October 2016 (UTC)

  • Thank you for your help, guidance and educating on good Wikipedia practices. Can you please restore to Draft so that the article can be worked on? Thank you for your help! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:09, 14 October 2016 (UTC)

CSD for Tribeca Shortlist Page[edit]

Hi Tom,

We fixed the page so

Copyright issues are gone.

Please restore our page.

Pyrasical (talk) 20:36, 13 October 2016 (UTC)

Hey Tom,

Thanks for getting back to me. Is there a way to contact the admin/CCU people? I'm pretty certain that all the copyright issues that you cited have been fixed. There should be no other issues with the page now.

Pyrasical (talk) 19:29, 25 October 2016 (UTC)

Hi Tom,

Actually, could I please have some usernames of the people I can contact? Thanks!

Pyrasical (talk) 19:43, 1 November 2016 (UTC)

Hey Tom - noticed that you removed the new Wikipedia page for Tribeca Shortlist and was wondering what your reasoning was. After our last conversation, I went ahead and followed your advice to simply create a new page with all the copyright issues addressed. I took out references to the company's own press release and addressed all the other remaining phrases that were highlighted as copyright violations. I am happy to address any additional issues that you may have found with the new page but I just need to know what those are. Thanks in advance for your help and guidance.

Hi Tom,

I understand that you deleted my page "The IGWC Slammy Awards" last night/this morning due to the fact that the person putting it up for 'speedy deletion' thought it was not genuine. I can assure you, using the link below, that these awards are genuine within the community and deserve recognition.

I also note that you're a fan of Haiku's, so here's one I made to make you change your mind:

Dedication, man, hard work deserves a reward, Hundred percent real.

Have a good day and I hope you reverse your decision! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bigbrojd (talkcontribs) 12:44, 26 October 2016 (UTC)

James Pallotta page[edit]

Hello, I noticed this past week the James Pallotta wikipedia page was enabled to be semi-protected by you. I believe it was due to a lack of citations, but all the facts were true. If you could allow it to be once again edited, each fact will be saved with a corresponding citation. The page as of now is missing a lot of key information regarding important investments and philanthropies James Pallotta is apart of and I believe the Wikipedia community should consider cited changes to take place. Please let me know how I can further the process thank you. ________________________________________________________


I wanted to thank you for clarifying Wikipedia pages and guidelines and responding to my question so quickly. Everything you do for the community is much appreciated.

Ajay_Data page deleted[edit]

I was just informed that you deleted this article above a few hours after it was tagged. I would like to differ with the opinion that this is an advertisement or promotional article. Considering that number of references and necessary coverage required to meet Wikipedia's notability. I would like to access the sources I had used therein, moving that to my sandbox would be helpful. Recently I have been credited to create Worlds First linguistic Email service. You may see this latest link

Thanks & Regards AjayDAta 07:51, 6 November 2016 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ajaydata (talkcontribs)

I with the page to be moved as article as its quite notable as explained earlier. I would like to refer to one more article, where I am credited as doing work even before gmail and microsoft and also the Worlds first IDN Email innovator / provider. May I encourge you to download DATAMAIL app on your phone and get a linguistic email yourself and see it yourself the revolutionary work we have done. I think my article has wrongly deleted.

Section Header (Jesse Creed)[edit]

Hi TomStar81!

You deleted my page on "Jesse Creed", an LA-based attorney running for City Council on March 7 election.

He is a notable figure in the West LA community, and I believe that a well-informed electorate deserves to have accessible information regarding a candidate running for public office. I provided credible, independent sources (LA Times, Hollywood Reporter), and would like the page returned.

Here is a haiku to support my case:

Jesse Creed is a LA Notable Figure Please give my page back

I hope I have satisfied all your requirements.

Good day to you sir,

Zainmalik94 (talk) 23:32, 7 November 2016 (UTC)

Hi TomStar81!

Would just like to point out a few things:

1) Most council-members already have Wikipedia pages. All but one of the current council-members have established Wikipedia pages that offer information about the public-office holders. See "Gil Cedillo", "Paul Krekorian", and "David Ryu" for examples.

2) Regardless of public office, Jesse Creed is an advocate for military vets, and has secured permanent supportive housing for homeless veterans at the West LA VA center. Surely this feat deserves some acknowledgement?

3) I have asked nicely, and I even wrote a haiku for you. I really thought you would honor the haiku if not anything else.

4) Here are independent source chronicling Jesse Creed's contribution to society:

5) Please give me my page back.


Zainmalik94 (talk) 22:58, 9 November 2016 (UTC)


I had reported Stemoc at 3RR for reverting more than once over a 24 hour period, not realizing he had been blocked, and seeking to follow up on the sanctions that were put in place on the article. Not sure if I should just remove the report at 3RR? Calibrador (talk) 09:12, 9 November 2016 (UTC)

In what universe is it acceptable to block someone for non-disruptive edits? Did you bother to look at the edits that Stemoc had performed? Yes, he reverted twice, but it was to replace a new image with one that had consensus to be there. The second revert was in response to an account adding the image back, who in other edits used summaries like "LONG LIVE PRESIDENT TRUMP!!!" and "MY PRESIDENT WON!". It would seem much more appropriate for an admin here to be enforcing things like WP:NPOV and WP:CONSENSUS rather than strange by-the-book DS blocks without even looking at the context. -- Ajraddatz (talk) 09:24, 9 November 2016 (UTC)
This is the part normally I would joke sarcastically where I say something like "a universe where Trump is elected"... -- A Certain White Cat chi? 09:29, 9 November 2016 (UTC)
I have moved the file on commons to a more descriptive filename. We typically do NOT want images on highly visible current event articles to change without consensus regardless of any specific policy or rule. -- A Certain White Cat chi? 09:29, 9 November 2016 (UTC)
Hello TomStar81. Regarding this 3RR case, if you believe that changing page-level sanction is is the best solution then why not log the change in the restriction at WP:Arbitration Committee/Discretionary sanctions/Log#American politics 2. Also it would be good to inform User:Laser brain because he is the admin who put the sanctions banner on Talk:Donald Trump. For some reason, page-level restrictions are not routinely signed, so it may not be easy for future admins to determine where they came from. Not disagreeing with you, just grumbling away about the universe. Also I'm assuming this is an arb sanction and not a community sanction, otherwise I must be even more confused. Thanks, EdJohnston (talk) 20:23, 9 November 2016 (UTC)

Speedy Kevin Anderson & Associates[edit]

Hi Tom, the page I wrote on Kevin Anderson & Associates [1] was nominated for speedy deletion. When this occurred, I made the argument that the article merited an encyclopedia entry, as many of the authors/works cited on this page have Wikipedia pages themselves, and that it would give a fuller picture of these authors/works, as well as of the ghostwriting industry as a whole. You wrote the following response:

Its unusual that I find myself persuaded to stay my hand in a contested csd by comments on the talk page, however this one makes an interesting case that this is notable for its role in ghostwriting, therefore on the strength of that argument I have elected to put this up at afd to get feedback on whether or not this should be deleted, merged, redirected, or draft-ified.

Since you responded, I have added many links to the article, and made sure that several of the pages of the authors/works cited link to it. Two other comments seem to think that the page is made for advertising purposes. My intent was in no way to advertise a service. Rather, this company has made a significant contribution to its industry, and seems to me to merit an article as such. If you have any suggestions on how to further expand the page, and better meet the Wikipedia guidelines, they would be much appreciated. I'd be happy to make changes to improve the article, and its standing with community members.

Two-Factor Authentication now available for admins[edit]


Please note that TOTP based two-factor authentication is now available for all administrators. In light of the recent compromised accounts, you are encouraged to add this additional layer of security to your account. It may be enabled on your preferences page in the "User profile" tab under the "Basic information" section. For basic instructions on how to enable two-factor authentication, please see the developing help page for additional information. Important: Be sure to record the two-factor authentication key and the single use keys. If you lose your two factor authentication and do not have the keys, it's possible that your account will not be recoverable. Furthermore, you are encouraged to utilize a unique password and two-factor authentication for the email account associated with your Wikimedia account. This measure will assist in safeguarding your account from malicious password resets. Comments, questions, and concerns may be directed to the thread on the administrators' noticeboard.

A new user right for New Page Patrollers[edit]

Hi TomStar81.

A new user group, New Page Reviewer, has been created in a move to greatly improve the standard of new page patrolling. The user right can be granted by any admin at PERM. It is highly recommended that admins look beyond the simple numerical threshold and satisfy themselves that the candidates have the required skills of communication and an advanced knowledge of notability and deletion. Admins are automatically included in this user right.

It is anticipated that this user right will significantly reduce the work load of admins who patrol the performance of the patrollers. However,due to the complexity of the rollout, some rights may have been accorded that may later need to be withdrawn, so some help will still be needed to some extent when discovering wrongly applied deletion tags or inappropriate pages that escape the attention of less experienced reviewers, and above all, hasty and bitey tagging for maintenance. User warnings are available here but very often a friendly custom message works best.

If you have any questions about this user right, don't hesitate to join us at WT:NPR. (Sent to all admins).MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:48, 15 November 2016 (UTC)

Re:(Deletion of Experion Technologies Page)[edit]

Hi Tomstar81,

Thank you for your quick response to my mail on the deletion of the Experion Technologies page.

As you pointed out, I am aware that the page content needs to be revised up to 80-90%. I am prepared to do this with guidance from the administrator end, so that future incidents of deletion are avoided. I am not too familiar with Wikipedia article creation, so it would help a lot to be guided. How do I move the previous article to draft space and how can I access the deleted article? Do I create a new one? Please advise.

Thanks, Rinku58.68.91.114 (talk) 04:47, 16 November 2016 (UTC)

Hi TomStar81,

Thanks once again for the prompt response and help. Will start on the revision of Experion Technologies page ( today, with help from all the sources mentioned by you. Hope I can complete the task well.

Another question here: How will the final, approved version be released for public view? Will a communication be sent to me?
