ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

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. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. 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. For the Election committee, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:45, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

Alison Richards is Anglican[edit]

Hello, you recently removed my edit of Alison Richards being an Anglican. I think this is the wrong thing to do because although she lives in the US now, that does not make her automatically Episcopalian. She was baptised in the Church of England and should be called Anglican as this is the English term and how she would identify herself. Thank you.

It was not me, see [1]. --Vejvančický (talk / contribs) 10:34, 3 January 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading File:Logo desigual.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Re. Wifione ArbCom case[edit]

This is probably irrelevant now that it's been a year and a half since the case closed, but for the record - I was wrong about Wifione. My involvement in the ArbCom case has become a source of embarrassment and I feel awkward reading through some of my comments there. Much as I hate speaking negatively about anyone, he was one of the most manipulative editors I've ever come across, and we are much better off without him. Please disregard anything critical I may have said about your continued involvement with Wifione; I was completely and utterly wrong, and I only realized it a few months too late.

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Vejvančický. 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.

Kamil Tellioğlu page why deleted ? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Architects1 (talkcontribs) 13:42, 10 October 2016 (UTC)

@Architects1: In the text of your article (reposted in the section above), you don't explain how notable (or "famous") Kamil Tellioğlu is. The text looks like a promotional personal page of an aspiring architect/interior designer explaining his ideas and work rather than encyclopedic article. I wrote "looks like" because the English used in your article is hardly comprehensible. I've checked also the sources: Nos. 1 and 2 seem to be artist's personal websites, No. 3 is just a photo of him and No. 4 lists Kamil Tellioğlu among "World's Famous Architects", which is surprising, because I was unable to find a single independent article on the web describing famous works and achievements of Kamil Tellioğlu. So that's why I deleted the page. --Vejvančický (talk / contribs) 14:30, 10 October 2016 (UTC)

A new user right for New Page Patrollers[edit]

Hi Vejvančický.

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)

Proposed deletion of Behind the Front Door[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Behind the Front Door has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

One sentence article about a non-notable television program. WP:DEL7 and WP:DEL8. Article was created by a user now banned.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Please note: I'm notifying you as the second most significant contributor to the article (of 3 total non-bot edits to the article), where by you added a single reference to the article which remains the sole citation. -- Whats new?(talk) 04:36, 1 January 2017 (UTC)

Randall Hicks[edit]

Just wanted to thank you for adding a source/book review to my article on Randall Hicks. Gelo962 (talk) 23:17, 30 January 2017 (UTC)Gelo962

No problem Gelo962. I have to say that this is really a borderline case (I'm talking about notability) but I like to see Wikipedia rich and detailed - that's our biggest strength. Your article is well developed and acceptable, in my opinion. However, some editors disagree, that's normal. Don't be discouraged, things not always work in accordance with our wishes. --Vejvančický (talk / contribs) 05:43, 31 January 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for the encouragement. I've done three articles now. One (Brian Wiprud) was tagged for deletion, but everyone has voted to keep it. And one on Laurence Shames, which initially someone said was not notable but now I don't see any mention it is considered for deletion, but maybe it will follow, as happened with those two and the Randall Hicks one. I really don't understand how any of these authors could be found not sufficiently notable as anyone who writes so many books and is mentioned in multiple national media spots seems someone of note to me, but I don't have to understand everyone's thinking. It is what it is. As long as people are not mean spirited as only some seem to be, I'll stay involved. Something to do in my retirement. Thanks again.

Username question[edit]

If you go to [2] and sort by number of contributions, you'll see that you have no data at all, because the script got confused by čický in your username. I was just curious — does the presence of č and ý routinely cause you problems here at en:wp, or is this page an anomaly? And if it is an issue, have you ever taken actions (aside from creating User:Vejvancicky) to mitigate them? Nyttend (talk) 16:46, 2 February 2017 (UTC)

@Nyttend: The data are there, and correct, just in a wrong column. I edit as Vejvančický since March 2008 and using the name (which is btw also my real life surname) doesn't cause me any problems other than cosmetic (such as the case you point to), so I have no need to take any "actions". --Vejvančický (talk / contribs) 05:35, 3 February 2017 (UTC)

John Mark Makwatta[edit]

Hi. I just have some questions regarding you declining CSD at John Mark Makwatta in this edit. As you can see on the creator talkpage, all of his created article (I am going through them after raised suspicions) have been copied directly from a webpage called soka. The editor even admitted editing on soka in one of the now deleted talkpages. It is not a case about notability, but the fact that the editor creates articles at an other website and then copies them to wikipedia. It is both copyright violation as well as him using himself as a source. Did you look at that before making your decision? Qed237 (talk) 12:08, 11 February 2017 (UTC)

Qed237: No I haven't checked the creator's talk page and you haven't applied {{g12}} criterion. I noticed mainly the I can not find the profile for this player on Soka in your rationale. Please understand that the context in your rationale might not be so clear to me as an uninvolved admin, and the fact that something is clear to you without clear evidence is not enough to delete the article. --Vejvančický (talk / contribs) 12:26, 11 February 2017 (UTC)

About the suppression of the Institut du Monde Arabe au Canadawiki page[edit]

Hi,

Last 12 February 2017, I created the "Institut du Monde Arabe au Canada" wiki page but you removed it because you said that the content reprensted "an Unambiguous copyright infringement" of http://www.imarabe.ca/?page_id=146. It is important to note that I'm the president of the (Institut du Monde Arabe au Canada) ant the owner of the web site http://www.imarabe.ca that's why I used the same content.

Please can you restore this content of this wiki page? If not, what is the procedure to restore this page.

I'am available if you need more information

Regards Ahmed Mahidjiba — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mahidjiba (talkcontribs) 05:57, 19 February 2017 (UTC)

Mr. Mahidjiba, it isn't clear that you are the owner of the website unless it is confirmed in a transparent way, please see Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. You claim that you represent the institute as president, which means that you apparently have coflict of interest. Here on Wikipedia, it is generally considered inappropriate to create articles about subjects you are affiliated with, WP editors usually take this form of editing as self-promotion. As for the notability of your institute, I can't find any independent and reliable sources confirming that "Institut du Monde Arabe au Canada" is a notable organization. There are many news articles about "Institut du Monde Arabe" but they may refer to other organizations existing in the francophone world under the same name. --Vejvančický (talk / contribs) 08:55, 19 February 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for answer. Here is the the official source/proof that you van obtain from the Enterprise Registrar institution in Quebec (Canada). If you look for "Institut du Monde Arabe" in "Find an Enterprise", you can find the full information about our organism included information on myself as president: Institut du Monde Arabe

Thanks — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mahidjiba (talkcontribs) 20:06, 19 February 2017 (UTC)

Mr. Mahidjiba: I don't question your presidency or the existence of your organization, I just can't find any evidence that the "Institut du Monde Arabe" is a notable organization in accordance with Wikipedia requirements. --Vejvančický (talk / contribs) 05:44, 21 February 2017 (UTC)

Invitation to Admin confidence survey[edit]

Hello,

Beginning in September 2017, the Wikimedia Foundation Anti-harassment tool team will be conducting a survey to gauge how well tools, training, and information exists to assist English Wikipedia administrators in recognizing and mitigating things like sockpuppetry, vandalism, and harassment.

The survey should only take 5 minutes, and your individual response will not be made public. This survey will be integral for our team to determine how to better support administrators.

To take the survey sign up here and we will send you a link to the form.

We really appreciate your input!

Please let us know if you wish to opt-out of all massmessage mailings from the Anti-harassment tools team.
