A Note About Advertising and Conflicts of Interest[edit]

If I reverted your link addition or removed your links from an article, please read this:

Due to the rising profile of Wikipedia and the amount of extra traffic it can bring a site, there is a great temptation to use Wikipedia to advertise or promote sites. This includes both commercial and non-commercial sites. You should avoid linking to a website that you own, maintain or represent, even if the guidelines otherwise imply that it should be linked. If the link is to a relevant and informative site that should otherwise be included, please consider mentioning it on the talk page and let neutral and independent Wikipedia editors decide whether to add it. This is in line with the conflict of interest guidelines.

If you have additional information to add to the article, why not simply add it rather than having an external link?

Small galleries at furniture[edit]

Hello Versageek! Yesterday I’ve added galleries at the page named furniture. They have the purposes to make readers better understand the periods. The edits I make on this page as constructive as possible. The deletion of them is very nonsense. Please let me add small galleries of four pictures at every section of this page. This isn’t a type of vandalism.

External Links[edit]

Hi Versageek,

I am new to editing Wikipedia and I was hoping to add useful information about insects to pages. I make educational YouTube videos about insects. I do not want to run into a problem with "conflict of interest" policies, but I also think that these videos would add beneficial information to the pages. Somewhere it mentioned, bringing it up in a "Talk" and letting other editors decide if it was a valuable addition. Where would I do that? I tried to just place a couple up and your bot knocked them down and I just don't want to step on any toes as I did not know that links were discouraged. Also, would it be more okay to just add written information to the body and then add the link at the bottom as a reference?

Thank you, Insectopia — Preceding unsigned comment added by Insectopia 2015 (talkcontribs) 20:26, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

For a broad based discussion, you could try: The WikiProject Insects talk page. Otherwise on the individual talk pages of the articles where you are trying to add links. --Versageek 19:17, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

The page is Pedro Fernández. I had updated It with recent discography, updated, working links to his official page, his Twitter and Facebook pages. Updated the TV section with his 2015 and 2016 shows. Updated the opening with his Grammy awards. Updated the movie section by adding missing roles. Then your bot comes along and wipes it all out. If you can't capture updated data then leave it alone if you see it has been manually updated. That was qiute a bit of effort you wiped out!

Inquiry on attempt to publish article on Albert Fattal[edit]

Hello, my name is Terchi and I am a new writer on Wikipedia. I recently began working on an article on Albert Fattal and was alerted of your attempt to publish the same. I would like to kindly know why your article was rejected and any pointers you may have on how to make my article better. Thanks in advance.

kind regards, (T.terchi (talk) 14:12, 24 August 2016 (UTC))

The best advice I can offer is to lay off of the superlatives. I read the deleted versions of the article and for a minute I thought it had been autogenerated by one of those programs that uses a lot of big words that seem to say something but are really nonsense. --Versageek 20:46, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

Wikipedia isn't a directory or link farm, also please see other stuff exists. I'm guessing from your username that you have some relation to the site you are adding. Adding links in this manner is discouraged and could cause the site to be blacklisted --Versageek 20:46, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

Waiting for your answer.... — Preceding unsigned comment added by AndrewBOS (talkcontribs) 05:04, 20 September 2016 (UTC)

You can't put in blacklist a site the have information that matter to people.

I added the articles with information according to the content and what people are looking for.

So...I would like you to explain what do you don't like about the information? What type of information is ok for those pages??

thanks for your time.


Andrew — Preceding unsigned comment added by AndrewBOS (talkcontribs) 05:10, 20 September 2016 (UTC)

We can and do blacklist sites if they are repeatedly added to articles by users with an apparent conflict of interest. Thus far, you haven't repeatedly added links to the site. The content on the site you want to link to adds nothing to the article that isn't already available, either on the page or in one of the existing references. If you want to add the link to that page, I suggest asking for consensus on the article talk page. --Versageek 16:22, 20 September 2016 (UTC)

checkuser check[edit]

Someone brought up on Wolfdog's wikipedia talk page that he rarely does edit summaries. On many occasions he will delete lots of text and never put up a summary of his edits. he has been doing this for a long time. 57.9 percent of his edits do not have summaries. I was wondering if you could checkuser this user and see if he's deliberately going around and doing things he shouldn't be doing on wiki page articles? Since he does this so often and so frequently, I think it should be looked into. This would be unfair to all the other users that contribute to wikipedia that spend alot of time trying to make contributions just to have someone go around very often and delete things without summaries. If a user is going around and deleting large amount of text without a reason, I would figure that would be vandalism. And many vandals like to go around doing that under numerous accounts. And account that has nearly a 60 percent rate of deleting things without a summary, is in my view a problem. Thank you. Juliep94 (talk) 21:20, 18 September 2016 (UTC)

I think you misunderstand the function of the checkuser tool. It detects if multiple users are sharing the same IP address. It wouldn't be of any help here. The best solution in this case would be to ask the user to please use edit summaries. It appears that someone has recently requested that on his talk page. --Versageek 23:41, 18 September 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for replying. I'm not 100 percent on the rules here so sorry if I'm wrong. Since this user goes around deleting a lot of text all the time from various articles, I was wondering since many vandals do this, if he could also be going under other names and doing something similar? Sometimes people spend weeks/months of research to add to articles. I think it's vandalism if you just go around and delete and snip stuff here and there. Obviously pages evolve all the time, and that's a good thing. But going around and randomly deleting things with no explanation to me is vanadalism. The near 60 percent rate is what worried me. This leads to suspicion. I don't know for sure if they're going under multiple aliases. I figured a quick checkuser would be able to find out if they did or not. And if they didn't, I'd have no problem apologizing for being wrong. I'd apologize to them personally on the talk page if that ended up being the case. Juliep94 (talk) 00:25, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svgHello, Versageek. 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)

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 Versageek.

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)

My blog is intended as a useful guide / source of additional info for Irish coin collectors.

The general rule is that you should not be adding links to your own website. I did look at the site & it does look like it can be useful as a resource, however you should suggest the addition on the article(s) talk page rather than add it yourself. Also, you are consistently breaking page formatting with the way you are inserting the links. --Versageek 20:41, 10 January 2018 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:WikiHow screenshot.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:WikiHow screenshot.png. 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).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in section F5 of the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 10:03, 21 May 2018 (UTC)

Hi Versageek, I'm writing you here because I've seen this is the main wiki where you edit and because here you're an abusefilter, checkuser and sysop.

If I write here the suspicious proxies IP ranges, will you be able to block them (as they're forbidden on Wikipedia) and do the same with the socks created over such ranges (as they weren't created for reasons according to community standards)? Let me know, please, I'd like to be helpful to the project by reporting vandals in bad faith who use proxies and socks such as this one! Enowtenorez (talk) 08:11, 30 June 2018 (UTC)

Christmas tableau.jpg Happy Christmas!
Hello Versageek,
Early in A Child's Christmas in Wales the young Dylan and his friend Jim Prothero witness smoke pouring from Jim's home. After the conflagration has been extinguished Dylan writes that

Nobody could have had a noisier Christmas Eve. And when the firemen turned off the hose and were standing in the wet, smoky room, Jim's Aunt, Miss. Prothero, came downstairs and peered in at them. Jim and I waited, very quietly, to hear what she would say to them. She said the right thing, always. She looked at the three tall firemen in their shining helmets, standing among the smoke and cinders and dissolving snowballs, and she said, "Would you like anything to read?"

My thanks to you for your efforts to keep the 'pedia readable in case the firemen chose one of our articles :-) Best wishes to you and yours and happy editing in 2019. MarnetteD|Talk 22:55, 19 December 2018 (UTC)

  • I can't find the deletion you are referring to - do you have the exact name of the page that was deleted? --Versageek 19:55, 18 October 2019 (UTC)
