Thalassery Raghavan[edit]

I agree there is little about him online but the fact is, that most of the work related pages are not online and his movies and literary works are done between 1970's to 2003 and they are in malayalam - south indian language, so kindly let me know where to post. Kindly allow me to edit and put full detail of him

Frank Crudele & Carlo Virzì[edit]

Thanks for your information, but i pray you do not delete Frank Crudele, and also Carlo Virzì. As i have written they are ONLY translated from Wikipedia Italy. When i read the English page of the movie "My name is Tanino", i have seen that many actor, and also the musician Carlo Virzì ( brother of the director Paolo Virzì) no have anything page in English Wikipedia. I hope that my English language it is no too bad, but unsfortunely i do not know in which way to add the reference : translated from Italian Wikipedia. Perhaps do you can help me and add this reference ???

Thank you in advance and I promise I will not do no more English translations. Vincenzo Miceli

Best Director at 85th Academy Awards[edit]

Got your message. If you're referring to the fact that Ang Lee's entry didn't match the formatting for the rest of winners and noms table, apologies, that was me being too lazy to follow through. If you're referring to whoever put Marc Webb as Best Director for the Amazing Spider-Man, that was someone else on my IP address. Just making things clear. --Non-Member Editor, 8:32PM EST, 4/30/15

You undid my edit[edit]

Hi, @Wgolf

You recently undid my edit on the 33rd Academy Awards page. If you go on my talk page, you'll understand that I was given permission by @Diannaa. And What do you mean stop, I've just joined lol.

My new article deleted by you:[edit]

I just created a new article on this major Indian retail player - Vishal Mega Mart - and you deleted it even before I could contest it. Though the page was marked for speedy deletion, the company is a leading chain of retail stores in India, just like Wamart or 7-eleven in USA, has very prominent brand name with hundreds of stores throughout India. I was about to add reliable sources to support my claim, but you deleted it within a few minutes of creation of the page. Please undo the delete and help Wikipedia expand and grow. - 1pp2 14 June 2015 2:51pm IST

Can you review CS Afumati and Stadionul Comunal (Afumati), please? Rhinen


Hello Wgolf, please check me, the pages of Juan Canaveris and his descendants, all added reference not listed in books. Maybe Google books not working?... I'm thinking it may have to be removed every page of Juan Canaveris and his family. Thanks!

NPR Newsletter No.16 15 December 2018[edit]

Hello Wgolf,

Reviewer of the Year
New page reviewer of the year cup.svg

This year's award for the Reviewer of the Year goes to Onel5969. Around on Wikipedia since 2011, their staggering number of 26,554 reviews over the past twelve months makes them, together with an additional total of 275,285 edits, one of Wikipedia's most prolific users.

Thanks are also extended for their work to JTtheOG (15,059 reviews), Boleyn (12,760 reviews), Cwmhiraeth (9,001 reviews), Semmendinger (8,440 reviews), PRehse (8,092 reviews), Arthistorian1977 (5,306 reviews), Abishe (4,153 reviews), Barkeep49 (4,016 reviews), and Elmidae (3,615 reviews).
Cwmhiraeth, Semmendinger, Barkeep49, and Elmidae have been New Page Reviewers for less than a year — Barkeep49 for only seven months, while Boleyn, with an edit count of 250,000 since she joined Wikipedia in 2008, has been a bastion of New Page Patrol for many years.

See also the list of top 100 reviewers.

Less good news, and an appeal for some help

The backlog is now approaching 5,000, and still rising. There are around 640 holders of the NPR flag, most of whom appear to be inactive. The 10% of the reviewers who do 90% of the work could do with some support especially as some of them are now taking a well deserved break.

Really good news - NPR wins the Community Wishlist Survey 2019

At #1 position, the Community Wishlist poll closed on 3 December with a resounding success for NPP, reminding the WMF and the volunteer communities just how critical NPP is to maintaining a clean encyclopedia and the need for improved tools to do it. A big 'thank you' to everyone who supported the NPP proposals. See the results.

Training video

Due to a number of changes having been made to the feed since this three-minute video was created, we have been asked by the WMF for feedback on the video with a view to getting it brought up to date to reflect the new features of the system. Please leave your comments here, particularly mentioning how helpful you find it for new reviewers.

A cup of tea for you![edit]

Meissen-teacup pinkrose01.jpg Maybe the wrong place to ask, but I looked all over and am scratching my head as to why the automatic Contents box is missing on the page you just reviewed - Harold Short

Any clues as to what can cause it to be missing?? Ray3055 (talk) 16:54, 7 March 2019 (UTC)

@Ray3055:, huh that is odd. No clue either! Wgolf (talk) 16:55, 7 March 2019 (UTC)

OK, got it - it only appears when there are 4 or more sections :) Ray3055 (talk) 17:10, 7 March 2019 (UTC)

Siavash Shahsavari[edit]

Here's what I think there may be problems with that:-

1) There are two articles of the same content. 2) The same content is in the user's own userspace. 3) I'm not certain if that passes the notability as it is not as popular as famous celebrities. 4) There appears to be signatures of the username which shouldn't be allowed on Wikipedia.

That's what I think are some of the problems for that to be a proper article. Iggy (Swan) 19:47, 8 March 2019 (UTC) @Iggy the Swan:-Thanks, not sure what to say then. I'll let someone else handle it! Wgolf (talk) 19:48, 8 March 2019 (UTC)

unsafe links[edit]

If I were you I would remove the link you mentioned. I think it also would probably be wise to put the article up for dleetion unless you can find a usable source.John Pack Lambert (talk) 01:13, 9 March 2019 (UTC) @Johnpacklambert:-okay I put a reason for removing it on the page, I don't normally do that, but in this case...(the article is from 2005, aka back when EVERYTHING was allowed) Wgolf (talk) 01:16, 9 March 2019 (UTC)

  • Yes, we are still suffering from the wild-west growth atmosphere of the early days of Wikipedia.John Pack Lambert (talk) 01:18, 9 March 2019 (UTC)

I have unreviewed a page you curated[edit]

Thanks for reviewing Paul Boafo, Wgolf.

StraussInTheHouse has gone over this page again and marked it as unpatrolled. Their note is:

Hi, I am marking this page as unreviewed because of copyright violations which will soon be removed by an administrator. I have placed "redacted" where copied content was, please feel free to expand on the content in a way that does not violate copyright. Many thanks.

Please contact StraussInTheHouse for any further query. Thanks.

Okay thanks, it didn't show up when I reviewed it. I am very careful about reviewing pages also, I guess that one slipped by! Wgolf (talk) 19:02, 9 March 2019 (UTC)

Hello Wgolf,

Discussions of interest
  • Two elements of CSD G6 have been split into their own criteria: R4 for redirects in the "File:" namespace with the same name as a file or redirect at Wikimedia Commons (Discussion), and G14 for disambiguation pages which disambiguate zero pages, or have "(disambiguation)" in the title but disambiguate a single page (Discussion).
  • {{db-blankdraft}} was merged into G13 (Discussion)
  • A discussion recently closed with no consensus on whether to create a subject-specific notability guideline for theatrical plays.
  • There is an ongoing discussion on a proposal to create subject-specific notability guidelines for chemicals and organism taxa.
  • NPR is not a binary keep / delete process. In many cases a redirect may be appropriate. The deletion policy and its associated guideline clearly emphasise that not all unsuitable articles must be deleted. Redirects are not contentious. See a classic example of the templates to use. More templates are listed at the R template index. Reviewers who are not aware, do please take this into consideration before PROD, CSD, and especially AfD because not even all admins are aware of such policies, and many NAC do not have a full knowledge of them.
NPP Tools Report
  • Superlinks – allows you to check an article's history, logs, talk page, NPP flowchart (on unpatrolled pages) and more without navigating away from the article itself.
  • copyvio-check – automatically checks the copyvio percentage of new pages in the background and displays this info with a link to the report in the 'info' panel of the Page curation toolbar.
  • The NPP flowchart now has clickable hyperlinks.

Friederike Irina[edit]

How was this vandalism? Please don't accuse people of bad faith when all they did was add some true, but unsourced, content. Phil Bridger (talk) 10:46, 20 March 2019 (UTC)

Oops I must of put that by mistake. Dang I can't believe I put that. Wgolf (talk) 16:20, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
I might of just undid some vandalism and then put it on that one possibly, I still think it's odd I put that. Wgolf (talk) 16:29, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
Don't worry about it, but learn from it if you can. We all make mistakes sometimes, even me. Phil Bridger (talk) 18:22, 20 March 2019 (UTC)

Done - Sir Sputnik, NinjaRobotPirate, -- Cabayi (talk) 15:18, 25 March 2019 (UTC)
If I remember correctly, I noticed this but figured it was a smokescreen – a random edit made to cause the other edits to look more legitimate. I could be wrong, but my impression is that this sock master is mostly concerned with self-promotion. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 18:27, 25 March 2019 (UTC)
NinjaRobotPirate, Thanks, I'll just carry on and archive then. Cabayi (talk) 18:29, 25 March 2019 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Javaid Anwar[edit]

Hello Wgolf. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Javaid Anwar, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: I have reviewed the deleted versions of this article, and this version is different enough to avoid WP:G4. In terms of content, it is substantially better than the deleted versions as includes a reference from The Express Tribune. Thank you. Shirt58 (talk) 10:38, 28 March 2019 (UTC)

Ahh okay, got it. I didn't know what the original one was like! Wgolf (talk) 21:30, 28 March 2019 (UTC)

Undid revision for Marksmen[edit]

Hello, I would like to know why you undid my content for the page Marksmen,

Marksmen is a legitimate company. Why is the post being removed? What are we supposed to do? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ejchat (talkcontribs) 20:42, 1 April 2019 (UTC)

@Ejchat:, it is a redirect, if you want to make a page for the company, do it the right way and create a actual page instead of changing a article. Wgolf (talk) 21:54, 1 April 2019 (UTC)

Bill Graham[edit]

I have removed your changes to Bill Graham -- there are two Bill Grahams who played football in Canada. You have them confused. As a family member I can confirm that this one who played for the Tiger cats is still alive. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Caninfo (talkcontribs) 19:13, 8 April 2019 (UTC) Okay, well I saw it was changed, I guess you might be right about that, I'll just leave it alone.Wgolf (talk) 20:18, 8 April 2019 (UTC)


I've reverted your removal of the BLPPROD tag on Mark Steven Morton, as the policy requires a reliable source be added to the article in order for the tag to be removed. The 2010 grandfather clause only applied to regular PROD, and even that clause has been eliminated. – bradv🍁 03:23, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

Okay-I didn't know they changed the rule. I just remember it saying they must be after March 2010. Wgolf (talk) 03:23, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
Yeah, there used to be a grandfather rule for regular PROD, although I don't believe it ever applied to BLPPROD (which I think used to be called "sticky prod"). I would link you to an RfC that made that change, but I can't seem to find it. Either way, this article needs some sourcing (it's borderline A7, really). I'm guessing you didn't have any luck finding one either? – bradv🍁 03:33, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
  • (talk page watcher) I've added a templated ISBN for one of his books, which is a Reliable Source supporting the article (verifies the statement that he published the book), so have de-prodded. PamD 06:14, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

Dave Schulz (Musician)[edit]

Hi - I appreciate your note left on Dave Schulz (musician). I have shared my efforts and thoughts on that talk page. Please let me know how I can continue to improve the article. I recognize the issues with the prior article, so have tried to write an objective, referenced article in its place. 99Perfectos (talk) 01:30, 19 April 2019 (UTC)
