Apposing the Speedy deletion of Donnabella Mortel[edit]

I oppose the deletion Donnabella Mortel is a known working actress, former professional cheerleader, and has several dozen articles, interviews, etc. to reinforce her notability. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Melissaburner (talkcontribs) 20:26, 31 August 2016 (UTC)

Hi, Melissa. It's not up for speedy deletion (it couldn't have been, because you asserted her significance). I proposed its deletion through a PROD tag, which you removed, as was your right. Now we're having a deletion discussion. For at least a week, people will be able to discuss Mortel's notability, and whether she deserves a Wikipedia page. You can participate in this too. If you want to do that, go to the discussion page and put in something like this:
  • Keep: I think Mortel is notable because...
Don't forget to sign your remarks with ~~~~. Although it's good to participate in the discussion, it would be even better if you could add some decent references to the article, to sources that show she's attracted critical attention. Having a handful of small parts in TV shows doesn't make her notable, nor does being a cheerleader, unless she got some press coverage for it. Please read the general notability guidelines to get a better idea of what you need. But it's not enough to prove she did the things you say she did, you have to prove that she received coverage in reliable, independent sources. ubiquity (talk) 20:41, 31 August 2016 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:Rumor Town Cover.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

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

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

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

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. -- Marchjuly (talk) 05:21, 1 September 2016 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of List of Halo weapons[edit]

So since according to WP:NOTGAMEGUIDE I can't make lists of weapons, I guess I can't really fix something that goes directly against that. Anyways sorry about that, I didn't even know the guideline existed... Gearzein (talk) 18:21, 2 September 2016 (UTC)Gearzein

I'm not sure what you have in mind, but yes, the policy seems pretty clear against lists of game weapons. If you look at the list of articles in WikiProject Halo, you won't find any lists of stuff, just people, characters, etc.
If you agree that the article contravenes policy, and want to delete it, just blank it, that will speed up the process. Or leave it alone if you want to see what happens. But I wouldn't work on it any more if I were you, it's pretty certain to be deleted eventually.
You don't need to be sorry, it was an honest mistake. It's tough being new, there's a lot to learn. Since you're interested in Halo, why not post a note on Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Halo saying you want to help? Also, there's a to-do list on that page, listing possible things to help with.
Good luck, and welcome to Wikipedia! ubiquity (talk) 18:35, 2 September 2016 (UTC)

My page deleted?[edit]

it said my page was deleted because it was about a person but didn't state why they were of significance, which I did state the YouTube channel of the person. Jadestaples (talk) 16:59, 6 September 2016 (UTC)

@Jadestaples: I assume you mean the page Jaedon Staples. It hasn't been deleted, I have nominated it for speedy deletion. Simply having a YouTube channel doesn't necessarily make a person significant, in the WIkipedia sense. Do you have any reliable, independent sources that mention the person? If you do, please add them to the article as soon as you can. ubiquity (talk) 17:08, 6 September 2016 (UTC)

well fair enough there, sorry for the mistake, if I can find any articles on him I will add them as soon as possible. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jadestaples (talkcontribs)

@Jadestaples: OK. A couple of other points:
  1. On your talk page, you admit the article is autobiographical. Please read WP:AUTOBIO to see why you should not be writing this article, and the special rules that apply if you decide to do so anyway.
  2. You don't need to use the reply_to template to talk to me on my own page.

IUGS deletion request[edit]

Hi Ubiquity, I've removed your deletion request, and added an external reference that explains notability. I explain on its talk page. Note that I have nothing to do with this institution, so I'm not shilling here, I'm simply familiar with higher education in Dominica so I know that IUGS has changed and adapted, and should remain. --Steve Foerster (talk) 14:56, 9 September 2016 (UTC)

@SteveFoerster: OK. I'm not totally convinced, but I suppose it meets the letter of WP:SCHOOLOUTCOMES, and the article isn't trying to hide anything. You might want to remove the school's name from List of unaccredited institutions of higher education, which is based on 2011 info. ubiquity (talk) 16:15, 9 September 2016 (UTC)
Fair enough. And thanks for the tip, I hadn't realised it was on that list. --Steve Foerster (talk) 17:44, 9 September 2016 (UTC)

Djakhangir Agaragimov[edit]

Hello Ubiquity. You asked for citations and sources but unfortunately failed to adress which statement of the article needs to be sourced further. Could you please elaborate on which sentence or claim in the article appeared undersourced in your judgement? Thank you, --Gereon K. (talk) 16:32, 12 September 2016 (UTC)

Hi, K Gereon. Thanks for asking. There are certainly statements which don't seem to be supported by any source at all; I don't think you need me to tell you which ones they are. The one most in need of sourcing is "He is one of the few chess players who managed to become Grandmaster without holding the title International Master before."
But it's not so much that specific statements need further sourcing, but that the current sources are all pretty weak. The first is an article about someone else that only makes a brief mention of Agaragimov, the second is his GM application, which is a primary source (and which will not mean much to someone who is not a chess fan), and the third is, again, a page that mentions him without discussing him. So far, the article doesn't demonstrate significant coverage in reliable, independent sources. I'm not sure if grand masters are automatically considered notable, but there seems to be a lot of stuff written about the guy, so it would be better if the article had stronger references. I'm not suggesting that the article be deleted, but I reviewed it, and that was my review comment. ubiquity (talk) 17:03, 12 September 2016 (UTC)

License tagging for File:Dark Lakes, Independence Township, MI.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Dark Lakes, Independence Township, MI.png. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information.

To add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia. For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 18:06, 12 September 2016 (UTC)

David Osper[edit]

Hi Ubiquity, I've removed your deltetion request for David Osper I've added external references that explains notability. I'm a fan of television shows like True Life, and he is the Executive Producer of the show I would hate to that go away. Thanks. --David Osper (talk) 14:39, 13 September 2016 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Afay89 (talkcontribs)

Hi, Afay. I'm sorry, but I don't think the references that are there are sufficient. In any case, they were there (and I examined them) before I placed the initial deletion tag on the article. You were totally within your rights to remove that tag (basically, removing it just means you disagree with me), but now I have opened a formal deletion discussion on the article at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/David Osper. Feel free to join the discussion to explain your point of view.
I'm a little confused about your signature. It looks like you were actually trying to sign as David Osper. Are you saying you are David Osper? ubiquity (talk) 18:02, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

How to put an article in drafts[edit]

Hi Ubiquity,
Can you please tell me how to put an article in drafts and what will happen to that perticular article after adding it to drafts???
Thank you.
CyberBrinda (comment) 2:57 17 September 2016 (UTC)

@CyberBrinda: I think that now that someone has opened a formal deletion discussion about it, it's a little late for that. If you read my reply before you deleted it, you might remember that I warned of that possibility. At this point, I think the best you can do is add your comments to the discussion in Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Rashi Yadav. ubiquity (talk) 21:43, 16 September 2016 (UTC)

@Hamody al-iraqi: Please read the Wikipedia policies on verifiability to see what kinds of sources qualify as "reliable". I'm afraid the ones that are currently in the article don't qualify. ubiquity (talk) 19:55, 30 September 2016 (UTC)

Akaki Tsilosani[edit]

Prof. Akaki Tsilosani is a prominent transplant surgeon, founder of TALIZI Clinic. He is recognized worldwide as one of the leading surgeons. Member and expert of International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS). There surely should be an article about A. Tsilosani in English Wikipedia too. (like turkish Doctor Koray Erdoğan for example). If an article needs some modification please let me know exactly what to do. I contribute to Wikipedia almost 10 years and I've read policies and want to modify this article so that it will be approved. Based on international recognition among colleagues and significant contribution to hair transplant surgery development, this article meets all Wikipedia criteria. I'm sure afer re editing and correction this article will be restored. Please advice exactly how to modify the article Zetalion (talk) 23 March 2017

The article on Akaki Tsilosani looked like a resume, which made it seem promotional, and it had no reliable sources, which confirmed it. If I had my way, the article on Koray Erdoğan would also be deleted for being promotional, but it has two things going for it: a couple of references to reliable sources (not all five references, but some), and he is the president of an organization that is notable on its own. If you resubmit the article on Tsilosani, my advice is to worry about solid sources before you worry about listing every last one of the subject's awards and conferences. ubiquity (talk) 18:23, 3 October 2016 (UTC)
Thank you! I appreciate your advice. Agree, maybe Koray Erdoğan's article is little bit promotional, but he is a prominent surgeon like A. Tsilosani. Their achievements are widely known among ISHRS, AAHRS and other international organizations. Ok, I'll remove everything which seems promotional and re-write the article with more solid sources.

Gatoclass (talk) 00:01, 10 October 2016 (UTC)

I don't get it[edit]

So a page is "promotional" if it's anything other than a well established and well known publication? Why was Alfred Shortstaff and the Cavern of Time deleted? Please show me the rules that say exactly how popular you have to be as an author in order to have your work on Wikipedia. The page simply outlined a synopsis of the book, which to me is pretty neutral. I never said "This is a great book" or anything like it. Please enlighten me. Abelhawk (talk) 14:03, 11 October 2016 (UTC)

Wikipedia is not a book-listing service, where anyone can post information about books they like. To have a Wikipedia article, a subject must be notable, and the notability must be verifiable. Please read Wikipedia:Notability (books), particularly the section on "Criteria", to see what's required. Your article on ASatCoT supplied no references, but it did have a link to the official page (including an advertisement of free download) and to its Amazon page, and seemed to me to be designed only to let people know about the book and how they could obtain it, which is promotional. Your article was deleted by administrator RHaworth (talk · contribs) who obviously agreed with my assessment. ubiquity (talk) 14:28, 11 October 2016 (UTC)
Fair enough. Though I still don't see what could make a book "verifiably notable." If it's published, isn't that notable enough? Obviously other topics can have news articles about them, and I shouldn't have put a link to the official page, but I'm still not certain what allows one book to have a summary on Wikipedia and not another. Abelhawk (talk) 03:07, 12 October 2016 (UTC)
The problem wasn't the summary, or the external link, but the lack of references. "verifiable notability" means "significant coverage in reliable, independent sources." For a book, this usually means awards or independent reviews (not random bloggers saying "i liked this book" but reviews with some editorial presence, such as in a newspaper). If a book is a best-seller, sales information could be used, though in that case reviews would probably also exist. If the book has a notable author (i.e., already in WIkipedia for other things), that can sometimes be taken as notability. Publication alone is not a sign of notability, as in this day anyone can publish a book (my own work appears in three books published by mainstream publishing companies, but none of them would make the cut for Wikipedia). ubiquity (talk) 09:23, 12 October 2016 (UTC)
Okay, thanks for your reasonable response. Abelhawk (talk) 14:24, 13 October 2016 (UTC)

Breaking the back of the backlog
We now have 368 New Page Reviewers! Most of you requested the user right to be able to do something about the huge backlog. Now it's time for action.
Mid July to 01 Oct 2016

If each reviewer does only 10 reviews a day over five days, the backlog will be down to zero and the daily input can then be processed by each reviewer doing only 2 or 3 reviews a day - that's about 5 minutes work!
Let's get that over and done with in time to relax for the holidays.

Article[edit]

Thank you for the advise and direction. I am trying to contact you but Wikipedia communication seems complicated, hence this is the only way I could think of.

Question-- Do you have any sources that support the facts of the article, such as her being the daughter of Hira Devi Waiba, or any source demonstrating notability? Answer-- Yes, the links are of Nepal's leading national newspapers and most popular and widely visited websites and social media pages.

Yes I have added links which demonstrate the authenticity of the article. Unfortunately most are in Nepali hence you might not be able to read.

I will try and clean up the page more and develop it. Yes, I am her son but here my role is only of a Wikipedia contributor. In this case, I cannot help it if Hira Devi Waiba was my Mother.

I hope that explains. Kindly advise if more input needed.

Kindest Regards. Satya adt (talk) 19:55, 28 November 2016 (UTC)

Superstition Meadery speedy delete[edit]

Hi Ubiquity,

I was told I'm not clearly stating why this article should deserve an Encyclopedia entry. I'd like some more time to work on this and this company has one of their brews listed as a top 25 of 2016. It's one of the top cider house and meadery's for quality in the world. I thought those two reason alone would warrant a page. Is there a section where I'm supposed to list reasons?? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superstition_Meadery Justindevine (talk) 10:54, 7 December 2016 (UTC) [User:Justindevine|Justindevine]] (talk) 10:51, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

All the best, Justin Devine — Preceding unsigned comment added by Justindevine (talkcontribs) 10:41, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

@Justindevine: To recap: In January, you created an article on this subject, which I tagged for speedy deletion, and which was deleted by an administrator (not me) because it did not "credibly indicate the importance or significance of the subject." You tried again this month, and someone else nominated it for deletion. I haven't participated in the current discussion. My opinion is that it certainly was promotional when it was nominated for deletion, but that the additional references you added may do the trick, particularly the ones showing Superstition has been noticed by notable journals and web sites. I believe you have also made clear the significance of the subject. So the article will probably survive. However, you have been remiss in not declaring your conflict of interest as a person who works for Superstition. Please read the Wikipedia policies on conflict of interest and take appropriate action.
The article has been edited by both you and Devinejp (talk · contribs). Is this also you? If so, please read the Wikipedia policy on user names, particularly the section on using multiple accounts. If it is not you, but a relative also involved with Superstition, what I said about conflicts of interest goes for them too. ubiquity (talk) 14:27, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

I've added a comment on the Talk for the Wikipedia: Superstition Meadery which I believe satisfies disclosing my potential conflict of interest. If it is not adequate, please let me know. As far as the username: devinejp, that is me and I didn't realize I had two different Wikipedia accounts. I've allowed my computer to automatically log me in, apparently I had a saved password connected to another account. I much prefer: Justindevine, and will add this disclosure to the Talk section as well. Thank you Ubiquity for all your help so far. Justindevine (talk) 15:38, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

@Justindevine: Very good. I added a keep vote to the deletion discussion. If you intend to continue creating content, you should look into deleting the account you don't want, as having two accounts can make people think you're engaging in sock puppetry even if you're not. ubiquity (talk) 17:06, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

ubiquity Thank you for all the feedback and help. I looked into deleting the username devinejp, it appears Wikipedia is not allowing this at this time. However, I figured out that if I used Firefox or Safari I was automatically logged into one or the other respectfully. I'll be careful to only use this one. Thank you so much for the 'Keep' vote. All the best Justindevine (talk) 03:34, 11 December 2016 (UTC)

Declined CSD[edit]

Information icon Hi, Ubiquity. Thanks for your work on patrolling new pages. I've declined your deletion request for Harnett County Library System, a page that you tagged for speedy deletion, because the criterion you used or the reason you gave does not cover this kind of page. Public library systems of cities are often notable; the article was not particularly promotional. Please take a moment to look at the suggested tasks for patrollers, criteria for speedy deletion, and particularly, the section covering non-criteria. Such pages are best tagged with proposed deletion or proposed deletion for biographies of living persons, or sent to the appropriate deletion discussion. Thanks!

BBC 12-hour Editathon - large influx of new pages & drafts expected[edit]

New Page Reviewers are asked to be especially on the look out 08:00-20:00 UTC (that's local London time - check your USA and AUS times) on Thursday 8 December for new pages. The BBC together with Wikimedia UK is holding a large 12-hour editathon. Many new articles and drafts are expected. See BBC 100 Women 2016: How to join our edit-a-thon. Follow also on #100womenwiki, and please, don't bite the newbies :) (user:Kudpung for NPR. MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 23:55, 7 December 2016 (UTC))

New Page Review - newsletter #2[edit]

New Page Review - newsletter No.2[edit]

Hello Ubiquity,
Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg
A HUGE backlog

We now have 368 New Page Reviewers!
Most of us requested the user right at PERM, expressing a wish to be able to do something about the huge backlog, but the chart on the right does not demonstrate any changes to the pre-user-right levels of October.

Hitting 17,000 soon

The backlog is still steadily growing at a rate of 150 a day or 4,650 a month. Only 20 reviews a day by each reviewer over the next few days would bring the backlog down to a managable level and the daily input can then be processed by each reviewer doing only 2 or 3 reviews a day - that's about 5 minutes work!
It didn't work in time to relax for the Xmas/New Year holidays. Let's see if we can achieve our goal before Easter, otherwise by Thanksgiving it will be closer to 70,000.

Second set of eyes

Remember that we are the only guardians of quality of new articles, we alone have to ensure that pages are being correctly tagged by non-Reviewer patrollers and that new authors are not being bitten.

Abuse

This is even more important and extra vigilance is required considering Orangemoody, and

  1. this very recent case of paid advertising by a Reviewer resulting in a community ban.
  2. this case in January of paid advertising by a Reviewer, also resulting in a community ban.
  3. This Reviewer is indefinitely blocked for sockpuppetry.

Coordinator election[edit]

Kudpung is stepping down after 6 years as unofficial coordinator of New Page Patrolling/Reviewing. There is enough work for two people and two coords are now required. Details are at NPR Coordinators; nominate someone or nominate yourself. Date for the actual suffrage will be published later.

Hello Ubiquity,
Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Voting for coordinators has now begun HERE and will continue through/to 23:59 UTC Monday 06 March. Please be sure to vote. Any registered, confirmed editor can vote. Nominations are now closed.

Still a MASSIVE backlog

We now have 368 New Page Reviewers but despite numerous appeals for help, the backlog has NOT been significantly reduced.
If you asked for the New Page Reviewer right, please consider investing a bit of time - every little helps preventing spam and trash entering the mainspace and Google when the 'NO_INDEX' tags expire.
