Re: Jano Janosik[edit]

Re your message: I would probably do an AfD. Some One (maybe two) of the bands listed have articles, so it could be in the gray area. -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 03:14, 17 January 2010 (UTC)

Re your message: Yup. Stewboss was about the band. It seems to be mentioned in a few other articles here and there. And the other may be Bardo (band), but kind of hard to tell. -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 03:25, 17 January 2010 (UTC)

Re your message: Well, an AfD was opened on the article. A couple of Deletes so far. But if you can find the sources, perhaps you can rescue the article? -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 04:23, 18 January 2010 (UTC)

Re your message: Probably not. The first one is more or less an ad, so doesn't establish notability. The second is a fairly trivial mention of the band and then Jano Janosik has even less mention. I think it's going to be tough to find enough references to make an individual article about him. -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 06:47, 20 January 2010 (UTC)

Good question[edit]

I don't think there's been a change in policy re. AfD, but I thought I'd err on the side of caution and point out the reason why the thing should have been deleted. Seems like someone agreed with my rationale.  :) --PMDrive1061 (talk) 23:32, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

Double/French spacing in TFAs[edit]

Hello, I saw by your recent contribs that you have recently been removing the French spacing from Today's Featured Articles. According to the Manual of Style, both double or single spacing is acceptable: "The number of spaces following the end of a sentence makes no difference on Wikipedia because web browsers condense any number of spaces to just one. However, editors may use any spacing style they are comfortable with in Wikipedia." As the major contributor of Flocke, today's TFA, I prefer two spaces after a full stop, and tend to write entire articles in that way; with that in mind, I've reverted your recent edit to the page. Others may feel the same in the future, and simply revert your painstaking changes, so you may want to desist since the MOS is against you. Just a suggestion. María (habla conmigo) 00:58, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

Replied here: [9]. -WarthogDemon 02:54, 15 February 2010 (UTC)
I did not take your tone as hostile and did not intend mine as such, either; I apologize if it came off that way. My comment was intended as a suggestion -- hence the "just a suggestion" note at the end, right? Double vs. single spacing makes no difference in how an article is perceived by a reader, but it's a pain to write an article in a specific way (and to maintain it a specific way), depending on one's personal style preferences, and then have someone not previously affiliated with the work step in and change things to a separate style without any reason given or discussion opened. I'm a picky content editor, and you're not the first who has changed my double spacing to single for whatever reason; however, you're the first I've seen consistently doing so to TFAs. I'm not sure how familiar you are with article writing, but as with other certain aspects of a page -- infobox or no infobox, citation templates or freehand references, British or American spelling -- it's all a matter of what the major contributors are comfortable working with. Double spacing, although it may be minor in comparison to the other aspects I've listed, falls under the ambiguous category of "the MOS doesn't say, so I choose to do it this way". As far as article size issues, I would agree with your point (that removing double spacing lowers kilobites and increases readability) if it were not for the fact that, correct me if I'm wrong, you seem to be implementing an arbitrary style change without taking into account the size of the TFAs. Flocke, for example, is one of the smallest FAs in regards to readable prose, and certainly poses no size issues. It isn't exactly William Shakespeare, is it? ;)
Sorry for the lengthy response. I may have been the first to bring your attention to the matter, but how many of your double-spacing-to-single-spacing changes have been removed? Have you commented on the talk page of these articles to discuss how the major contributors feel about double spacing as opposed to single spacing? What I'm getting to, really, is that double spacing is my preference, and the preference for many other contributors out there, and if you have valid points to make against it, perhaps you should begin a discussion about the issue before changing every TFA on the mainpage. Again, that's just a suggestion. Take care, María (habla conmigo) 03:25, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

My edits are not vandalism because it talks about how many professional wins does each player have. The (3) indicates that the player has three wins, and you can see the list of victories below the headings of the wins section. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.68.32.98 (talk) 22:38, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

Re: Myachi[edit]

Re your message: I think the CNBC and New York Times articles establish the topic's notability. The article is indeed a mess and needs major cleanup. As the IP who added the article tags to it said: "so many problems..." The style is wrong in the Basic Rules and Tricks, the Origin section should be towards the top, and the list of "Masters" should probably be completely removed since it is unreferenced, doesn't establish any of their notability, and probably more importantly, doesn't give any context at all (Former Butter Master? Umm, okay...). -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 19:24, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

Double spaces[edit]

UAA[edit]

What I had said on the UAA page was correct, except that the proper term is "hidden", not "locked". There is a log of all of the account hiding somewhere on meta, but when I went to look for it I couldn't find it. Sorry. I believe Popups will always return the correct "blocked" message even after an account has been hidden ... it's what I use ... though I can't promise 100% accuracy as I've never asked anyone who would know.

Grammar NAZI[edit]

I was reading comments on a user talk page where you introduced yourself in this manner. Then you offered insight which correctly improved the sentence at issue. From my perspective I recognized you as a potential asset and wondered if you would avail yourself to user requests to review text? If in fact you enjoy offering such a critique, I will almost certainly call upon you in the future to review text appendages! In fact you can analyze this paragraph, which I have written in the style I generally use, and advise where I may have erred. Thank you.My76Strat (talk) 17:11, 28 April 2010 (UTC)

Reply[edit]

Hello Warthogdemon. I reverted that edit as, it appears that the template was being used in a way other than its intended purposes. The user in question was repeatedly warned for vandalism (level 4, not at a level 1), and was given a cookie by another user in a act of "assuming good faith" (which, to be quite honest was a bit ridiculous in this case). The pattern of edits from the account is clearly that of a VOA/troll, so I reverted. But no, cookies are not bad. See User talk:Active Banana#Well for my message. —Tommy2010 02:48, 26 May 2010 (UTC)

Grab some glory, and a barnstar[edit]

Hi, I'd like to invite you to participate in the Guild of Copy Editors July 2010 Backlog Elimination Drive. In May, about 30 editors helped remove the {{copyedit}} tag from 1175 articles. The backlog is still over 7500 articles, and extends back to the beginning of 2008! We really need your help to reduce it. Copyediting just a couple articles can qualify you for a barnstar. Serious copyeditors can win prestigious and exclusive rewards. See the event page for more information. And thanks for your consideration. mono 00:50, 12 June 2010 (UTC)

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

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, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes 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. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

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. Courcelles (talk) 01:11, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

Romanization for words of English origin[edit]

On the MOS:JP talk page, a discussion has been started about including or not including romanizations for words of English origin, such as Fainaru Fantajī in Final Fantasy (ファイナルファンタジー, Fainaru Fantajī) (for the sake of simplicity, I called this case "words of English origin", more information on semantics here).

Over the course of a month, it has become apparent that both the parties proposing to include or not include those romanizations cannot be convinced by the arguments or guidelines brought up by the other side. Therefore, a compromise is trying to be found that will satisfy both parties. One suggestion on a compromise has been given already, but it has not found unanimous agreement, so additional compromises are encouraged to be suggested.

One universally accepted point was to bring more users from the affected projects in to help achieve consensus, and you were one of those selected in the process.

What this invitation is:

  • You should give feedback on the first suggested compromise and are highly encouraged to provide other solutions.

What this invitation is not:

  • This is not a vote on including or excluding such romanizations.
  • This is not a vote on compromises either.

It would be highly appreciated if you came over to the MOS:JP talk page and helped find a solution. Thank you in advance. Prime Blue (talk) 11:38, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

Re: Ila kumar[edit]

Re your message: Hard to say, really. There's a claim to notability with the Indian Railways award, but my quick look around for further information on that presents nothing explaining exactly what the award is. Placing the article under an AfD would be fine. The notability appears to be questionable. As for the COI, I would AGF and leave that part out. The editors involved in the article have similar, but not identical names.

Funny thing is that I edited the article two years ago trying to clean up a few things after cleaning up spam. Back then, I did a horrible job of fixing the formatting, but this time I did better. =) -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 06:48, 7 September 2010 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Bloodbeasts.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Bloodbeasts.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 orphaned, meaning that it is 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).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of "file" pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Skier Dude2 (talk) 06:16, 28 February 2011 (UTC)

New deal for page patrollers[edit]

Hi WarthogDemon,

In order to better control the quality of new pages, keep out the spam, and welcome the genuine newbies, the current system we introduced in 2011 is being updated and improved. The documentation and tutorials have also been revised and given a facelift. Most importantly a new user group New Page Reviewer has been created.

Under the new rule, you may find that you are temporarily unable to mark new pages as reviewed. However, this is nothing to worry about - most current experienced patrollers are being accorded the the new right without the need to apply, and if you have significant previous experience of patrolling new pages, we strongly encourage you to apply for the new right as soon as possible - we need all the help we can get, and we are now providing a dynamic, supportive environment for your work.

Find out more about this exiting new user right now at New Page Reviewers and be sure to read the new tutorial before applying. MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 04:29, 13 November 2016 (UTC)
