Yes, So, what are you implying ??? --Triwbe (talk) 06:33, 11 May 2010 (UTC)

There's no implying at all, just don't restore removed comments.

creating wiki page[edit]

hello, This is Japanesebusinesswriter.

For the first time I tried creating wiki page in English about a Japanese company called Ubiquitous Corp. which I have been following recently for its uniqueness that I thought useful to let overseas people know also.

I may have missed some writing rules as I later found my poting was deleted. Frankly I know very little about wiki creating or editing rules so I appreciate it very much if you can advise the way so that my creation will not be deleted.

I have followed wiki questions such that I do not relate to this company nor I have conflict of interest, and also cited all the sources that I originally obtained the information from.

Sorry if my questioin sounds not wise, but truly I would like to know the specifc rules, if someone can help.

best regards, Japanbusinesswriter —Preceding unsigned comment added by Japanbusinesswriter (talkcontribs) 07:59, 15 May 2010 (UTC)

BLPPROD of Mayou Trikerioti[edit]

Please note that I have removed the BLPPROD from this page, as ImDB is widely used in referencing of films on wikipedia, and I see no reason why it should be declared as uncontroversially unreliable. Prods should only be used for uncontroversial deletion, so if you still feel that this article should be deleted, please take it to AfD and give your reasons there. Thanks. GiftigerWunsch [TALK] 16:42, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

I have just added a second reference to the page. GiftigerWunsch [TALK] 16:54, 28 May 2010 (UTC)
I did not see the second reference before an admin deleted the page, but I agree with Wikipedia:Citing IMDb (although failed) and for a BLP article I think a better source is required as per WP:BLPPROD. --Triwbe (talk) 17:11, 28 May 2010 (UTC)
In any case, I added a second reference which was a review which mentioned the individual in relation to one of the films listed on the article. It'll need more to establish notability to the satisfaction of an AfD, but it passes a BLPPROD and also the A7 speedy deletion criterion, so I'm appealing to BzG to restore the page so that more references can be added, etc. GiftigerWunsch [TALK] 17:17, 28 May 2010 (UTC)
I would have been OK with that. --Triwbe (talk) 17:18, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

"the Hunches' article and notability[edit]

Hello Triwbe, I'm posting to your talk page to ask how I should better establish notability for "the Hunches" page I just created. I reviewed the standards for musical notability before writing up the article, and found that this article was sufficient. I would be happy to add whatever documentation is needed. Most of the references I provide are long-standing and significant music critic sites in the US. I have to run off to work, so I will save out the article in case it is deleted. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Canavarbey (talkcontribs) 20:38, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

Hi, The criteria for bands is given in Wikipedia:Notability (music) and it was not clear to me precisly which of these criteria, if any, the band met. I expect they do pass, that is why I did not propose it for deletion, but clearing this up now will prevent future editors from deleting it. --Triwbe (talk) 20:44, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

"saama"[edit]

Please see this. -- Hoary (talk) 10:29, 29 May 2010 (UTC)

Luis Radford[edit]

I removed the prod because, contrary to your impression, the article does cite references. In fact, it cites over 400 of them, namely 100 cites at Google Scholar per each of his four articles mentioned. Radford is a distinguished educator and your suggested deletion shows insufficient attention to detail on your part. Tkuvho (talk) 16:31, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

Thank you, I appreciate it. I fully agree with the policy of "no personal attacks", yet it surely leaves room for constructive criticism :) Tkuvho (talk) 16:41, 30 May 2010 (UTC)
I was well aware of those "citations" but I believe that none of them gave any direct verification as required by WP:BLP. A simple google gave more than enough sources, so I took one and added it.
Also I am a firm believer in the phrase "Comment on content, not on the contributor". No one has any right to say if my attention is sufficient or not. --Triwbe (talk) 16:51, 30 May 2010 (UTC)
I am sorry, it was far from my intention to offend you. As a way of explanation (not excuse), I would like to add that a number of articles I have recently created go through what seems to have become a standard routine of being prodded for deletion. Usually the deletion of the prod takes care of the issue. Tkuvho (talk) 16:55, 30 May 2010 (UTC)
This seems to be an inherent problem with WP:BLPPROD, it is very different from the PROD. PROD can be removed by absolutely anyone for any reason and should never more be used on that article. PROD is for uncontested deletions. BLPPROD, on the other hands states "Please do not remove this tag unless the article has at least one such source". See Wikipedia:Proposed deletion of biographies of living people#Objecting. It also say's that I should also have looked for a source before tagging, which I admit I did not (and mostly do not) do. --Triwbe (talk) 17:40, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

trikerioti deletion[edit]

Dear sir or madame,

I understand the deletion of the trikerioti article becaus eyou kept only the IMDB verified parts. As there is no site equivalent to imdb, but the official site of the artist, and as theatre designers are not listed the same way, I would appreciate you not deleting the article in the future. This is a full credited artist and you can see the personal website CV and cross-reference it.

Thank you in advance,

BT —Preceding unsigned comment added by 94.195.125.128 (talk) 14:55, 31 May 2010 (UTC)

The article deltion is being discussed here Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Mayou Trikerioti and you should add your comments there. I am not an administrator and cannot delete anything. The deletion is decided by consensus and not one person anyway. The article can only be kept if the person passes the WP:Creative conditions. I accept english lanuage sources may be difficult to find, but Greek sources are also acceptable, and I even mentioned this in the discussion. I have a greek assistant so validating any sources given is not a problem. --Triwbe (talk) 15:05, 31 May 2010 (UTC)
Oh, and by the way, I was at UKC and remember the Gulbenkian theatre :-). --Triwbe (talk) 17:37, 31 May 2010 (UTC)

Hi. I have bee referencing like crazy last night. Even though I had started referencing theatre credits and films that are not in IMDB, you deleted again. (for example productions in the national were referenced with links in the theatre section, and the films that again were deleted were referenced in the site of the Greek film institute.) Therefore I am going to undo once more and then give up. As I stated in the deletion talk, I give up, and I am letting my University overseer know that this job is not possible. PS. i am sorry i do not know what the Gulbenkian is. I am a student in the greek uni writing about theatre people as part of my thesis. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Despw22 (talkcontribs) 17:50, 1 June 2010 (UTC)

Hello Triwbe. Could you please let me know how I can edit in-image advertising so it doesn't get deleted? I see you have marked it for speedy deletion. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Inimagead (talkcontribs) 17:36, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

in-image advertising article[edit]

Hello Triwbe. Could you please let me know how I can edit the in-image advertising article so it doesn't get deleted? I see that you have marked it for speedy deletion.

Inimagead (talk) 17:38, 4 June 2010 (UTC) Inimagead Inimagead (talk) 17:38, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

When I tagged it, it was practically empty. No article can be left if it does not meet the minimum level of standards. new articles can be developed in User pages before moving it into the main namespace. In this case, yuo managed to get the article up to standard before one of the Wikipedia:Administrators got around to deleting it. I have now removed the delete and added a few little extras to the article. --Triwbe (talk) 19:03, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

Josedavidcuartas & International Image Festival[edit]

Just noticed your message on User talk:Josedavidcuartas' talk page, realised I was somewhat violating the 3RR myself. Rehevkor 03:08, 5 June 2010 (UTC)

WP:3RR does not apply when you are reverting vandalism, I think. --Triwbe (talk) 06:31, 5 June 2010 (UTC)
I was never really sure if removing maintenance templates could be considered vandalism. I've restored them anyway, to hell with the consequences! Rehevkor 12:44, 5 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. –xenotalk 12:46, 16 June 2010 (UTC)

WP:BITE[edit]

Hi, please keep in mind not to bite newcomers. Adding a speedy-delete tag on an article within minutes of its creation is only going to terrify new users. If you're patrolling new pages, I suggest you start with the oldest pages, as is recommended. Shreevatsa (talk) 07:42, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

I do keep this in mind, but SPAM is SPAM and should be removed pronto. I see Themaxviwe (talk · contribs) agrees with me and restored your CSD removal and has now AfD'd it. --Triwbe (talk) 08:03, 19 June 2010 (UTC)
Seriously? Within two minutes, and without being sure that the article can be nothing but spam? "Note that simply having a company or product as its subject does not qualify an article for this criterion" — says the notice. I still don't know if the article can be kept, but what makes you think it's spam with no possibility of being encyclopedic? Nominating an article for AfD within a few minutes of its creation is just absurd. I'm giving up on this, but things are very wrong with Wikipedia if this is how newcomers are treated. Shreevatsa (talk) 08:23, 19 June 2010 (UTC)
Please also read the essay Wikipedia:Concerns about Speedy Deleters, which is about the potential harm that editors like you may be doing to Wikipedia. I see no compelling reason not to give new users a little while to see if they improve an article, before scaring them away. (In any case, I'm pretty sure speedy-delete tags should not be re-added after they're removed once, but that's not your fault.) Shreevatsa (talk) 08:33, 19 June 2010 (UTC)
If you think it a worthy article, you can say so. I CSd, you remove it, some one else AfDs, we discuss and we arrive at a WP:consensus, that is how it is supposed to work. It's how wikipeida works. The article may well improved and be kept, that is not for me to say. Unfortunately too many people see Wikipiedia as a vehicle for promotion and propaganda and it is the New Page Patrollers who defend against this, but we are not a single person making a final decision, we flag and an admin decides, check out my CSD, probably only 1 in 100 is declined, that shows I have a good sense of what is acceptable and not to the community.
The new commer process can be tough but if you read the guidlines and templates, it is quite clear. You and I both survived it because we keep to the guidlines. --Triwbe (talk) 08:37, 19 June 2010 (UTC)
I did say so, and removed the tag — the CSD tag was added again despite this — *twice*. How much do you expect a random third party like me (who just accidentally stumbled on the page when looking at Special:NewPages) to do to say an article is worthy? I'm of course not debating that spam should be deleted — just the idea that it should be deleted within seconds, and newcomers should be scared this way. Wikipedia is not a bureaucracy, and expecting new users to have read all the guidelines and giving them no time to react is silly. Leaving them a message saying the article may be inappropriate and giving them a day or so to fix it seems just as fine. In any case, before marking something for deletion shouldn't you do your due process and check if it may be notable? This one seems to be covered in several major publications. I think the fact that you got so many articles deleted is nothing to be proud of — for instance, if I hadn't noticed this article, someone else may have deleted it based on appearance alone, and it would have added to your statistics. See WP:BEFORE: it says, in bold, "If the article can be fixed through normal editing, then it is not a good candidate for [deletion]." (It talks of AfD, but the same idea applies.) Shreevatsa (talk) 08:56, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

Hi: I've found a case where you (doubtless inadvertently) unfairly bit a newcomer and even though it was over a year ago, I'd like to point it out to you as a cautionary tale - the editor created a lot of short articles, got piled on, and vanished, but your admonishment was wrong. Hornet (comics) is about characters in the Marvel universe; the one-line fragment User:Mancula had created at Hornet (comic) was about a D. C. Thomson & Co. comic book called The Hornet and s/he had included that information. Yes, it was a woefully inadequate stub, not even a complete sentence, lacked linkage, and the editor created a large number of those that day. But you erred in assuming based on the similarity of title that it was an almost empty article on a subject Wikipedia already had an article on, because you didn't look at the information the editor had supplied. He/she was putting in solid info but nobody advised him/her to write complete sentences and include at least one link - or that a reference was needed - so half of his/her articles were deleted. I think it's regrettable we lost him/her, and although you were not the only one to make a wrong snap judgment, yours was based on not really looking at what the editor wrote, so I thought I'd drop you a belated line about it. Yngvadottir (talk) 17:39, 22 July 2010 (UTC)

New BLP articles[edit]

You may want to consider tagging unreferenced BLP articles with {{subst:prod blp}} instead of {{unreferencedBLP}}. The former puts the article up for deletion if no sources are provided within 10 days, unlike the latter which allows them to hang around for (potentially) years. 69.181.249.92 (talk) 07:57, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

Which I do always!!!. Oh why do I bother ? --Triwbe (talk) 07:58, 19 June 2010 (UTC)
Hmmm. I could have sworn I saw an article you tagged with a stand-alone {{unreferencedBLP}}. My mistake. 69.181.249.92 (talk) 08:14, 19 June 2010 (UTC)


There is one which has a standard PROD for notability, so I adde only an unreferencedBLP to get the article improved. If the PROD is removed I will blp prod. --Triwbe (talk) 08:20, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

BLPs[edit]

Please notice that BLPPRODs are only for subjects which are actually a living person. Cola Wars (band) isn't a BLP. Thanks! Hobit (talk) 01:17, 22 June 2010 (UTC)

Why? This is a band article, an article about living people, which should follow WP:BLP just as any other bio. --Triwbe (talk) 15:19, 22 June 2010 (UTC)
Should a company article which mentions the CEO also fall under this? While most articles mention people, at the moment only BLPs are eligible for the BLPPROD. There is some discussion on the topic though, see here and the associated talk page (where the band issue has gotten a bit a traction) Hobit (talk) 16:18, 22 June 2010 (UTC)


Accept[edit]

Hi, this edit that you accepted, did you think it was correct? Your acceptance was reverted by an IP and I accepted the IP edit. Off2riorob (talk) 20:20, 24 June 2010 (UTC)

There was no reason not to accept it. Wikipedia:Reviewing#Reviewer responsibilities only requires that the edit is not obvious vandalism or an obviously inappropriate edits. It is not a thorough 100% check on every item added. --Triwbe (talk) 06:02, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

File:Jessica jarrell.jpg[edit]

Hi Triwbe. Thanks for your hard work in file CSD. However, please note that while File:Jessica jarrell.jpg is copyrighted, no copyright violation exists. A copyvio only exists when the uploader claims work which is not their own as their own OR when the uploader asserts a free license on an image which is clearly copyrighted. Regards, FASTILY (TALK) 03:59, 29 June 2010 (UTC)


You got your policies a little mixed up there..[edit]

On your userpage.. Notability, is not a "core policy", it's actually a guideline.

Wikipedia's 3 core content policies are Verifiability, Neutrality, and No original research.

Just thought I'd give you a heads up. -- œ 06:17, 30 June 2010 (UTC)

inserting a photo[edit]

Hello,

I wondered if you could help - I think you corrected a typo in the page on business woman Julie Meyer I have helped to put together; thank you for doing that. I wondered if you might be able to give me some advice? I would like to upload a photo to the page but do not have the required level of admin access to do this. Do you know how I can achieve this so that I can upload a photo of her?

Many thanks, Notts214Notts214 (talk) 14:27, 22 September 2010 (UTC)

NEMO[edit]

I honestly thought I heard something quacking, but I figured an AfD would be better because a PROD tag would be removed by the IP. Ishdarian|lolwut 06:45, 28 September 2010 (UTC)

Well I think a CSD which is not removed by an admin or experienced editor and is removed by an IP editor should be replaced. However I CSD'd that hours ago and no admin had done the deed, so I figured AfD was probably a good idea. --Triwbe (talk) 06:48, 28 September 2010 (UTC)

Bethany (band)[edit]

Hi there. I would like to express my desire for wiki not to delete the page I just made? They're a legit band and they have music online... Peanutbutterdimsumstyle (talk) 11:53, 18 October 2010 (UTC)peanutbutterdimsumstyle

They have played for a television station RCTV 36 in Cebu, Philippines, for a show. You can find their TV performance in Youtube.com with keywords like Bethany Tambayan Sa Outpost. They were also featured in a local daily, Sun.Star Cebu, last October 4. They also played for NU107 FM, a rock radio station in the Philippines... I really hope you don't delete the page, thanks sir Peanutbutterdimsumstyle (talk) 12:06, 18 October 2010 (UTC)peanutbutterdimsumstyle

Hello, thanks for your message. You have said this on the discussion page which is good. Others will also see this and may be able to improve the article and it may be kept. I have anounced it on the Phillipino lists and Musicians lists so there may be some support for the article. Have a look at Wikipedia:Guide to deletion. You need to show that it satisfies any of the criteria in WP:BAND and show sources for verification which it currently lacks. --Triwbe (talk) 12:46, 18 October 2010 (UTC)

Hey thanks! Will check on that band and verification links you just posted. I think the best I can do right now is to edit the article that it "passes" your standards... Thanks again! Peanutbutterdimsumstyle (talk) 17:28, 18 October 2010 (UTC)peanutbutterdimsumstyle

Hi sir, references added to establish: band's existence, notability and quick rise in the local community scene in the span of a short time frame, and other pertinent information for verification purposes. Hope the page stays sir, thanks Peanutbutterdimsumstyle (talk) 03:53, 19 October 2010 (UTC)peanutbutterdimsumstyle

Inappropriate external links, as you did with this edit to Jeans[edit]

HI Triwbe,

I just wonder what do you mean by "inappropriate external links, as you did with this edit to Jeans?" As a Fashion school student, we need to study all kind of material including denim but when i do research on the web I found this web site contain further research that is accurate and on-topic about Jeans and Denim that why I would like to share this information to everyone. I do not intended to promote a website or external link spamming. I'm still new with this wikipedia maybe the first editing I didn't direct it to the right web page which you may find it as spamming. Just hope you will read the article in the website " http://www.bugattifurniture.com/newshow.asp?id=34" which explained step by step process on how denim is made into Jeans .... Thank You. Felicia —Preceding unsigned comment added by 60.54.115.223 (talk) 15:44, 21 October 2010 (UTC)

OK, when I looked at the link I saw the advertisements for furniture and got the idea that it was spamming. I see now that you are correct and will replace the links. This kind of misunderstanding can be avoided if you explain your edits in the edit summary. --Triwbe (talk) 15:56, 21 October 2010 (UTC)

Thessaly goby[edit]

Hi. I don't want to oppose what might be a good faith CSD tag, but I was researching this problem when you applied it. The article appears to be in perfect order and a redirect ha already been made. Perhaps there is something I have missed. I am not the creator, nor am I otherwise involved with the article oter than doing some housekeeping.--Kudpung (talk) 09:46, 1 November 2010 (UTC)

A further look appears to show that you have reverted the already created redirect. is there any particular reasosn why?--Kudpung (talk) 09:49, 1 November 2010 (UTC)

Read the CSD. Thessaly goby (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) is a cut and paste move of Thessalogovinós (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views). The move is justified, it just needs to be done properly. --Triwbe (talk) 10:14, 1 November 2010 (UTC)

speedy deletion nomination of Payleap[edit]

Already been speedied and declined once. Use WP:PROD or WP:AFD if you still feel it should be deleted. --Elen of the Roads (talk) 21:27, 9 November 2010 (UTC)

The 1st CSD was for SPAM, which the article is not - but it does not claim significance, and so it clearly CSD#A7. CSD are not PRODs, a CSD criteria either exists or does not and can be nominated at any time. Do we have to go to AfD for this ? --Triwbe (talk) 21:33, 9 November 2010 (UTC)
Yes, fraid so. Payleap actually is notable (check Google), it's just the article is written badly by novice editor with COI. Rather than tagging, do you fancy adding a source?--Elen of the Roads (talk) 21:37, 9 November 2010 (UTC)
To late for me to work on it right now. But I'll take your word that it is potentially notable. I will check back tomorrow and not AfD for now. --Triwbe (talk) 21:40, 9 November 2010 (UTC)
And Ellen's editing has fixed it! A reminder that CSD is very narrow, and in this case even a cursory Google check indicated it would - or rather should - fall foul of any speedy deletion. Pedro :  Chat  22:34, 9 November 2010 (UTC)
Yes, it's OK now, but we cannot allow every small, non-notable article to remain. We cannot cross check every new article, especially when on-line sources may not be sufficient. The creating editor is clearly informed how to try to improve the article. --Triwbe (talk) 07:17, 10 November 2010 (UTC)
Actually, both the tagger and the deleting admin should do a minimum of a Google check. I always do. I agree that NPPers can't be expected to chase up references or reference every article, but a minimum check is wise, as we only want to delete articles that really are without notability. --Elen of the Roads (talk) 12:08, 10 November 2010 (UTC)

Deletion of Creation's Tears[edit]

13th Nov 2010 Parody Paradigm

Hi, I notice that my article Creation's Tears has been nominated for deletion. This band are getting exposure in all the UK based rock magazines at present as well as on a number of credible websites and have been played on radio including BBC Radio 1. I wondered what content you'd require that I would improve in order for this article to avoid being deleted. I appreciate your help and suggestions. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Parody Paradigm (talkcontribs) 14:07, 13 November 2010 (UTC)

The nomination is kind of abligatory because a previous version of it was deleted only a few months ago. It is best that you read the reasoning and make your comments there. --Triwbe (talk) 15:15, 13 November 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for clarifying. I now understand. The previous article was deleted on the grounds that the band did not have any released works. Creation's Tears subsequently released their debut album on 4th Oct 2010 and have had coverage in major UK press and major worldwide websites since. 17th Nov 2010 —Preceding unsigned comment added by Parody Paradigm (talkcontribs) 17:52, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

I think you're right. No one has commented on it yet (neither for or againts) but if the new article show that they pass WP:BAND then it's a keeper. --Triwbe (talk) 17:54, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Jason Merchant[edit]

Hello Triwbe. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Jason Merchant, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: The article makes a credible assertion of importance or significance, sufficient to pass A7. Thank you. ϢereSpielChequers 11:57, 20 November 2010 (UTC)

I did, and I think it was valid. --Triwbe (talk) 12:26, 20 November 2010 (UTC)
I Didn't tag it, I only restored a deleted speedy removed by the creator as per protocol. You need to inform User:Coolug, not me. --Triwbe (talk) 12:14, 20 November 2010 (UTC)
A yes good point, though I might suggest that it if you restore a speedy deletion tag it is worth checing to see if it is valid. ϢereSpielChequers 12:24, 20 November 2010 (UTC)
One ref - a software blog. And it's not about Merchant. WSC may have a point, but IMO as it stands, what Merchant has done does not necessarily make him notable, and if it did, I think it needs much better sources. Perhaps a PROD or AfD might get the sources I couldn't find. --Kudpung (talk) 13:02, 20 November 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Leandro Leviste[edit]

Hello Triwbe. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Leandro Leviste, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: there is maybe just enough here to escape A7; I will take to AfD. Thank you. JohnCD (talk) 12:15, 20 November 2010 (UTC)

Sorry, I see you didn't tag it, you only replaced the tag. The CSDHelper script is not very intelligent! JohnCD (talk) 12:17, 20 November 2010 (UTC)
Hi Triwbe, I originally CSD tagged it. AfD has opened, you may wish to comment there. --Kudpung (talk) 12:54, 20 November 2010 (UTC)
Yes, I saw and I think you have it sown up, nothing I can add to your sterling work. --Triwbe (talk) 12:57, 20 November 2010 (UTC)

Asheville FM page[edit]

Hi For some reason my page was deleted within hours of me putting it on and I would like to understand why. Asheville FM is a legitimate radio station, fully licensed with ASCAP & BMI. We have been broadcasting since Sept 2009. I included our website which has additional info to verify everything that I wrote. Please let me know what else you need to justify its existence. I have read all of the tutorials on creating a page Thanks —Preceding unsigned comment added by Thebigern (talkcontribs) 14:58, 20 November 2010 (UTC)

Doug Billings[edit]

I put a db-bio tag on the article, but since it was removed by another editor, I had to go the afd route. Corvus cornixtalk 22:10, 23 December 2010 (UTC)

Also, even with an afd tag on it, the author put a hangon tag on it, which I removed, so if you think the db is appropriate, could you re-add the hangon tag, please? Corvus cornixtalk 22:11, 23 December 2010 (UTC)
Where does it say that? A candidate for CSD remains a candidate until either the CSD is no longer applicable (e.g. claims notability) or and admin decides yea or nay. CSD is not a PROD. --Triwbe (talk) 22:15, 23 December 2010 (UTC)
A CSD can be removed by anyone, for any or no reason whatsoever, so long as it isn't the original author who removes it. Corvus cornixtalk
Where does it say that ? --Triwbe (talk) 22:29, 23 December 2010 (UTC)
The creator of a page may not remove a Speedy Delete tag from it. Only an editor who is not the creator of a page may do so.. Corvus cornixtalk 23:06, 23 December 2010 (UTC)
But it says nothing about not restoring the CSD if you disagree, and if there is a content dispute then there are proceduers for that. Restore the CSD and let an admin decide, it's what they're (not) paid for. I would also accept the decision of any editor of good standing. --Triwbe (talk) 00:03, 24 December 2010 (UTC)

Thank you. ϢereSpielChequers 10:23, 24 December 2010 (UTC)

Sorry, you got it wrong, I didn't tag that page, I only replaced a CSD removed the page creator. You should inform User:Burhan Ahmed. --Triwbe (talk) 12:03, 24 December 2010 (UTC)
You're quite right, sorry about that, Mind you there's not much point in restoring an incorrect speedy tag. even if the creator shouldn't have removed it. ϢereSpielChequers 12:09, 24 December 2010 (UTC)
There is every point. The CSD guide is quite clear, the page creator should not removed a CSD placed on his own article. If we do not respect this simple process of validation the CSD's become a joke and so does Wikipiedia. --Triwbe (talk) 12:11, 24 December 2010 (UTC)

"Fails WP:MUSICBIO since they have not had a charting single or album. I admit it is difficult to judge because ghits are imprecise in this case. If some one can show they pass then OK, but I could not. Triwbe (talk) 11:53, 3 January 2011 (UTC)"

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Europe/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like Germany, Italy, the Benelux countries, Iberian Peninsula, Romania, Slovenia etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. If you would like to see masses of articles being improved for Europe and your specialist country like Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon, sign up today and once the challenge starts a contest can be organized. This is a way we can target every country of Europe, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant and also sign under any country sub challenge on the page that you might contribute to! Thank you. --MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 21:10, 7 November 2016 (UTC)

Plastic Bertrand / Ça plane pour moi PAGES[edit]

Hi!

As a Wikipedia beginner, I wonder if you can help me with something...

I would like to accord to the French/correct version the ENGLISH pages of both "Plastic Bertrand" and "Ça plane pour moi" pages. But there is an "Automatic filter" for one, and a "semi-protected stuff" for the other, and I can't edit them...

I send a modification request but there is no response. What can I do to solve this limitation and contribute to these pages?

In advance, thank you very much for your help!
