CSD/AfD

Gah! Trying to distinguish between vandalism and "things that you or your friends made up" is making my brain hurt. Should I withdraw AfD to allow the speedy deletion process run its course? - SoSaysChappy (talk) 10:08, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

I agree infinity percent! My only guess is ...Wikipedia does not want to "offend" an editor by quickly telling them that the subject of their article (thing they made up) is unimportant, so it instead allows a 7-day discussion to determine whether or not what they have added is notable. I haven't messed around with speedy-tagging and AfD tagging lately, and I was just trying to remember if one would interfere or slow the progress of the other. Since my above post, I've suddenly remembered that I've seen AfDs closed early as a result of speedy deletes (if I do recall correctly). Here's to hoping the CSD policies change soon. Cheers! - SoSaysChappy (talk) 11:40, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

Rugby League

Hi WWGB. I notice some of your entries to the List of Rugby league incidents were deleted, which I restored again. There seems to be a concerted effort to reduce the list, even though such incidents are continually in the headlines, and the newspapers themselves publish similar lists they've compiled themselves. I'm against the recent name change, which extends the name to be extraordinarily long, and inserts word "player" into the name, as an excuse to go through the list deleting incidents by coaches and other league entities (even though they are always present on-field and an essential component of the game). Anyway, the article needs to be watched before it gets too much smaller. Cheers, --Lester 09:11, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

Lasting Tribute

Lasting Tribute is not proof of death as anyone can register a tribute and anyone can add information.

DO NOT CONTINUE TO REVERT. While there is a separate deletion discussion going on, she is not a celebrity and not worthy of inclusion in the page you are adding it to. If you continue to revert, it will be treated as vandalism. Dr. Cash (talk) 15:27, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

Sydney Meetup

I think you may have been notified by email, but I thought it was worth my dropping in a note anywhoo, to let you know that Sydney Wikipedians are having a meetup this coming Tuesday, the 4th August. As you'll see on that page, we have two folk flying in from the Wikimedia Foundation who will be attending, and we have a great crowd of wiki types signed up to come along.

If you've never been to a meetup before, this wouldn't be a bad one to kick off with (we're all very friendly, interesting, and great looking folk ;-), and if you have, well come along again, why don't ya! If you've any questions you can flick the aussie mailing list an email on wikimediaau-l@lists.wikimedia.org aussie mailing list, or drop me a note on my talk page. Hope to see some of you there!

ps. If you've already signed up, and received an email, and a phone call, and a door knock, and are getting a bit frustrated with constant advances from enthusiastic australian wiki types, then I'm told you can print this message, and bring it along to use as a 'free beer' voucher, redeemable by our esteemed Vice-President of WMAU on the night...... ;-) Privatemusings (talk) 22:05, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

Sompting Festival

I have just logged onto Wikipedia, and discovered a note from you to say that my page on "Sompting Festival" is marked for urgent deletion. Unfortunately, it had already been deleted before I saw this message,

I do not understand the problem with this page. There is a very similar page for the Adur Festival, which is what gave me the idea to add this page in the first place!

The Sompting Festival is a very important part of the Sompting community. I would therefore be grateful if the page could be reinstated.

Hi. I have taken your db-g3 tag off this, as I don't think it's vandalism or misinformation - there are enough Youtube-type Ghits to confirm that such a thing actually exists.

While Don Grant died about a week ago, his death wasn't announced until this week.

Anna Belle Clement O'Brien

I had an interesting thing happen today. I was categorizing the death of Anna Belle Clement O'Brien, using Category:Accidental deaths from falls. Orlady, an editor who seems to be watching this article, undid this categorization and entered this for the reason: "[removed] category; she died AFTER a fall, but no source has said the fall caused the death". Well, this reasoning would create chaos with many other articles that have a Category:[Cause of death] when the death is caused from its complications thereof (Damn, I sound like a lawyer, which I'm not). I don't want to get into an edit war with this editor. What do you think? Ed (talk) 20:59, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

Hi, initially I created Category:New unreviewed articles as a cat added by the preload, but then saw people weren't removing that (not unexpectedly).

Chronological Deaths Deletions

Pardon me, but I am searching for the page on which it states that Wikipedia’s policy is to delete from the chronological Deaths pages the lines for all people deceased more than a month ago if they do not have personal biographical pages on Wikipedia. If such a policy has been formally established, please direct me to the page where I can read about it.

Your history of “contributions” establishes that you have been very, very busy making such deletions from the Deaths pages. If you are doing so in accordance with Wikipedia policy, then you and I have no argument. Aardvarkzz (talk) 18:45, 25 September 2009 (UTC)

This is not policy but rather a consensus among the regular contributors to Recent deaths. See, for example, Talk:Deaths in 2009#Redlinks 2 and Talk:Deaths in 2008#Redlinks, part II. This convention is also acknowledged by a number of administrators, such as User:Rodhullandemu. A short background: the recent deaths pages were open to non-notable additions such as "Bill Smith, 95, American businessman". These was no formal way to challenge these additions, such as speedy deletion, proposed deletion or AfD because they were not articles. So the position was reached to allow entries to remain for one month to see if an article eventuated, and survived any deletion arguments, thereby establishing notability. If not, the entry was removed. Regards, WWGB (talk) 07:24, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

Wikipedians need not be such elitists that we deny a single line to noteworthy deceased with news obituaries by major newspapers and websites. Having looked at some of your deletions in August for people who died before the 25th, I agree that some (you offer the example “Bill Smith, 95, American businessman”) ought to be deleted. There are decedents with Wikipedia pages (for example, Chanel, 21, American dachshund, world's oldest dog, died 29 August) that should be tagged for deletion.

However, the remaining redlink names in August are people who obviously qualify for personal pages, even if those pages have not been created a month after they died.

After considering each redlink name still displayed on 25 August, my offhand feeling was to recommend only Simon Thirgood (30 August) and Amos Hawley (31 August) for deletion, but I checked other sources and found a page for Hawley at Encyclopedia Britannica and an obituary for Thirgood in the London Independent, so I added those links to their respective names (as you have noticed) to make a case for their retention.

If someone has an obituary in any of the four London papers that originate their own news obituaries (Times, Independent, Guardian, Daily Telegraph) or the three major U.S. papers (LA Times, NY Times, Washington Post) of similar authority, the name should not be deleted, unless it is someone of strictly local interest. Also, a bio page at NNDB.com or Encyclopedia Britannica also should qualify the decedent for a permanent line in Wikipedia’s chronological Deaths. I do not insist that a bio page at IMDb necessarily qualifies a person for inclusion, but the number and quality of credits there should be taken into account. For example, actress-spokesmodel Joanne Jordan died 29 July 2009, but her death was not reported until 24 September, the day I looked for, and did not find, a Wikipedia page for her, so I entered a line for her, adding the notation “see LA Times 9/24/09 obits.” Within a day, you deleted that line with the terse comment “notability not established.” Please read her LA Times obit and look at her page on IMDb; it is unlikely you will argue that she is not notable.

Let us avoid argument and encourage discussion. We should err on the side of inclusion, not exclusion. Continue your scrutiny of the Recent Deaths, but for each redlink name you evaluate as not worthy of retention, please consider the following alternatives for that person’s line (1) Put the name between “< !--“ and “-- >” so it’s still there but doesn’t display. (2) Move the line to a page with a title such as Deaths in September 2009 deleted for lack of notability.

You, I and the others with interest in the necrology can be an ad hoc committee that decides whether a name remains excluded or should be restored. If a committee member makes a reasonable case for notability (as I have for Jordan, Thirgood and Hawley), that Wikipedian’s viewpoint should be respected.Aardvarkzz (talk) 21:35, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

I am somewhat bemused by your confrontational language ("elitists") and condescending tone ("Continue your scrutiny of the Recent Deaths") - like I need your permission! I am prepared to put that down to differences in our respective national cultures. I reiterate that I am not acting as a renegade editor, but applying a convention supported by other interested editors, as I have detailed above. The issues that you have raised would be better discussed at Talk:Deaths in 2009 rather than on a user talk page like this. I do not intend to comment further here, however, I will undertake not to delete further redlinks in the short term until you have had the opportunity to canvass further opinion. Regards, WWGB (talk) 11:43, 28 September 2009 (UTC)

Today I reverted the vandalism of User:83.244.129.2 to the August Deaths page. You can read about it at that person’s discussion page.

Possibly we have reached agreement that the systematic deletion of redlink names has ended, permanently. I do not need to seek a consensus with you and those who allegedly condone your destructive edits.

Your redlink deletions appear to go back to 28 August 2006, It is my suggestion, not a demand, that you go back to each month for the past three years, and make an intelligent decision about whether to revert each of your previous deletions. If you decline to begin reverting a high percentage of your deletions very soon, I will take up the matter with Wikipedia administration as to who should do it. Respectfully, Aardvarkzz (talk) 01:46, 29 September 2009 (UTC)

Speaking as an admin, but not on behalf of all administrators, I have been asked for an opinion. Removing redlinks is not necessarily destructive, because there have to be some limits on how long we allow them to persist, and consensus seems to be established that if a redlinked recent death is not converted into an article within a month, it does not need to remain as a report. Since this is a wiki, anyone is subsequently allowed to create the article subject to the general notability guidelines. However, if you think this consensus is misguided, you are free to propose a change at Talk:Deaths in 2009, and I doubt that holding another editor to ransom over interpretation of existing consensus is helpful. I also believe that the admin community's view would be that admin intervention is unnecessary at this stage, because the process is Bold, Revert, Discuss, not Bold, Revert, Complain. There is also the option of seeking a third opinion as part of the dispute resolution processes. Rodhullandemu 17:04, 29 September 2009 (UTC)

It's meetup time again in Sydney - hopefully you'll be able to come along for friendly chat and drinks about all things wiki - topics will no doubt include the Chapter - perhaps with planning for the upcoming AGM, the general state of wiki-play, and the traditional candle lighting to encourage the mythical flagged-revisions extension to make its way on to the wiki. At this point, I usually mention that sitting wiki arbitrators are compelled to buy everyone a drink, but one of our number has taken a rather extreme route in avoiding this duty - if you have no idea what I'm talking about then you're probably busy writing and maintaining articles - but come along anyways on the 21st October, from 18.30 til late, to find out :-) cheers, Privatemusings (talk) 21:31, 1 October 2009 (UTC)

Murder of Annie Le

Hello,

I'm an aspiring editor who is new to Wikipedia. I'm writing a paper on revision practices in Wikipedia, and I'm using the murder of Annie Le article as an example. I was confused by your revision of Sep 15 7:03 (UTC). It says that you changed the article from Annie Le to the murder of Annie Le. But I thought this change came earlier at 1:17 that day by 64.252.72.160. That is when I noticed that the bold part of the first sentence changed from Annie Le to the murder of Annie Le. I assumed that the words in bold form the title of the article, since there is no heading at the top. Is this incorrect? I'd appreciate you clearing this up for me.

Daul Kim

Re recent entry in Deaths in 2009 (not of your making) - is this person notable ?! Mind you, we have a dog on the same date. Does my ex-guinea pig count ? LOL.

"Alias" in serial killer infobox

The intent of this line in the infobox is for listing names or titles by which the killer was known during the crimes being committed or nicknames given by press or authority. Names such as "The Boston Strangler", "The Hillside Strangler", etc., are the intent. If you have a better descriptor title for that line, please advise WP:CRIME so that it can be changed to that, but please do not remove these names because that isn't what alias means. Consider the intent, not the name of the line. Thank you. Wildhartlivie (talk) 09:31, 23 November 2009 (UTC)

I think WWGB's recent edit to change the field to "Also known as" does the trick. – ukexpat (talk) 03:14, 26 November 2009 (UTC)

Linking of dates

I notice that you reverted a bot edit which removed date links. Kindly note that the linking of dates is no longer encouraged on Wikipedia, and that the bot has community consensus to delink all full dates (please see here). What is more, dates in the reference section are far from being germane to the topic at hand. Thanks for your attention. Ohconfucius ¡digame! 02:28, 1 December 2009 (UTC)

To clarify further, there's nothing wrong with disagreeing with unlinking dates (it's still the norm), but if you want to keep the dates linked, you need a more convincing reason than "no thanks", which is basically WP:IDONTLIKEIT. Dabomb87 (talk) 05:03, 1 December 2009 (UTC)

G10 comment

FYI, you marked this page as {{db-g10}}. It wasn't really G10, as the subject is just random penguins. I went ahead and deleted it as {{db-g3}}. tedder (talk) 07:18, 26 December 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Vladimir S. Kostić

Hello WWGB. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Vladimir S. Kostić, 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.
