regarding editing of page AKM Abdur Rouf[edit]

dear wikidan61,

all the information used in editing the mentioned page is from the authenticated source. I have bunch of files that that can verify it, only i don't know the proper way to upload it. please help me to construct this page for the honor of a great man of Bangladesh.

Thank you — Preceding unsigned comment added by Greenwiki911 (talkcontribs) 13:28, 26 March 2019 (UTC)

@Greenwiki911: Files that you have that can verify this information don't really count as reliable sources as we have no idea of the provenance of those files. Wikipedia relies on information published in reputable publications (newspapers, magazines, books, etc. that have editors and fact-checkers) and websites that exercise a degree of editorial oversight. If you can reference such sources, great. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 13:31, 26 March 2019 (UTC)

No Sources - Site Development Group[edit]

Dear WikiDan61,

Thanks for replying so quickly.

I received your comment with respect to No Sources. However the only source would be the company their website which I set as a source: in addition I could add the Wyoming publication of this company would that be sufficient to get the article approved ?

Thank you, — Preceding unsigned comment added by Boyschook (talkcontribs) 14:38, 26 March 2019 (UTC)

@Boyschook: No. Wikipedia is not a business directory covering every existing company. To be included in the encyclopedia, a subject must meet the criteria for inclusion, with specific criteria covering companies. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 14:42, 26 March 2019 (UTC)

@Manish techguru: You may not remove the Articles for Deletion notice from Manish kr Jha. You may comment at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Manish kr Jha with any information that you think will help inform the community about why you think this article should not be deleted. When the discussion has run its course (usually 7 days, but possibly longer if there has not been sufficient input after 7 days), an administrator will either decide to keep the article and remove the notice, or to delete the article.

Request on 13:07:04, 27 March 2019 for assistance on AfC submission by Bostongeorge86[edit]

I created a page exactly like this:, why mine is not been approved?

Bostongeorge86 (talk) 13:07, 27 March 2019 (UTC)

@Bostongeorge86: Your submission (Draft:DataHjelpOslo AS) has the following problems:
  1. It is written in Norwegian. This is the English language Wikipedia: all content must be written in English. If you wish to contribute an article in Norwegian, contribute it at the Norwegian Wikipedia.
  2. It contains no references other than the company's own website, meaning there is no indication of the significant coverage in independent media that is needed to show that this organization merits inclusion in Wikipedia.
Yes, your article is substantially similar to Intility, but since that article is on the Norwegian Wikipedia, it is appropriately written in Norwegian. As for the lack of useful sources on that page, that's a problem for the community to resolve. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 13:13, 27 March 2019 (UTC)

Harlequins Foundation[edit]

Hi Dan,

Just got your message about the Harlequins Foundation page. Harlequins foundation is an independent (and registered) charity - an organisation in its own right, whilst being associated with Harlequins FC. Additionally, there is no information on the wikipedia page of Harlequins FC about the charity. The draft is just the beginning of the page. It has its own company logo, website, CEO and staff etc.

Does this not deserve its own page?

Best wishes,

Pat — Preceding unsigned comment added by Pat.Metcalfe.Jones (talkcontribs) 15:26, 28 March 2019 (UTC)

@Pat.Metcalfe.Jones: Based on the coverage you have provided, it does not apear to deserve its own page. And yes, the charitable foundation surely has its own registration number, it would certainly not exist or have relevance outside of its association with the rugby team. If the article about the team doesn't contain information about their charitable foundation, I suggest you add it. (A small section -- one or two paragraphs -- with suitable citations should do.)

Deleting of Paul Westwood page[edit]

I am trying to edit the above page which has a deletion message can you please let me know why? Thanks Joyce Gyimah — Preceding unsigned comment added by Joyce Gyimah (talkcontribs) 21:23, 28 March 2019 (UTC)

@Joyce Gyimah: If you go to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Paul Westwood, you'll see that I have explained my deletion rationale: I have found no significant coverage of Westwood or his work. He wrote a book, but I can't find any reviews. He has recorded some stuff, but I find no evidence of any awards won for his music, or any significant coverage of him as a musician. (See WP:MUSIC for relevant criteria.) WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 21:33, 28 March 2019 (UTC)

Request on 16:41:45, 5 April 2019 for assistance on AfC submission by Nikolai Petrovich[edit]

Dear User:WikiDan61, as I had updated the article with additional proof and links can you kindly review and provide your comments again?

Nikolai Petrovich (talk) 16:41, 5 April 2019 (UTC)

@Nikolai Petrovich: The changes in the article since I reviewed it appear to be the removal of images by the BOT because of copyright issues, your removal of a citation to Stupak's own website, and the addition of a citation to a website that, although I cannot open it at the moment (office firewall), appears to be an announcement of Stupak's appearance at a charity event. These changes do not alter my initial conclusion that this musician does not yet merit inclusion at Wikipedia (or, at the very least, that you have not yet demonstrated that she merits inclusion).

Confusion about Feedback[edit]


I'm trying to post a page about a nonprofit organization that states it mission and gives a quick overview of the programs it has. I wrote the material specifically for Wiki. While there will be similarities in the descriptions of the programs, this text was not copied from another source. Can you please point me to what the specific issues are with the article?

I want to be in compliance with Wikipedia's terms and conditions and I appreciate your guidance!

Best, Mariah — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mgwen19 (talkcontribs) 17:59, 5 April 2019 (UTC)

@Mgwen19: The material that exists presently at Draft:The Andrew Goodman Foundation does not appear to be a copyright violation, but the material that was posted 3 days ago was. (There are tools available at Wikipedia for users and administrators to compare the text of the page and the relevant source pages, so claiming that the old copy was not in violation is a pretty hard sell.) Since you have rewritten the material to avoid direct copyright violation, that is no longer a problem, but the present text is still largely promotional. I was not the one who tagged the present draft for deletion, but I don't disagree with the rationale of the editor who did tag it. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 18:50, 5 April 2019 (UTC)

Nexus Development Security[edit]

Dear, thank you for your comment. i am doing a lot of researches now and every book that i have read so far, describe the phenomena that i describe as " Nexus Development Security. well i don't know if some people use the term like you name it but i don't know if whether i must change the title or not. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Yuzjm (talkcontribs) 13:33, 6 April 2019 (UTC)

@Yuzjm: Perhaps the books you're reading are not written in English? In English, the noun of this phrase is Nexus; it is a nexus of issues concerning both economic development and security, so the phrase Development-Security is an adjective describing the nexus: hence Security-Development Nexus. In foreign languages such as French or Spanish, the adjective might naturally follow the noun, but not in English. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 11:53, 8 April 2019 (UTC)

no litigation[edit]

we have observed a concern that you have published an article mentioning of sexual harrassment allegations. This is highly harassment and misconducted.

After the article, deservedly there has been no litigation. We kindly ask you to remove this urgently and never post it again on his or any other places on Wikipedia.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Helene1982 (talkcontribs)

@Helene1982: Although it is customary not to remove content from other users' talk pages, I will take your removal as a recantation of the prior legal threat you had posted here. Thank you. As for the content of the article, I urge you to enter into the discussion at Talk:Greg Kadel. There you will find that I was originally in agreement with you on the matter, but since the allegations (unproven, perhaps, but not yet retracted) have resulted in loss of significant contracts for Kadel, Wikipedia's policy on biographies of living persons would have us retain the information in the interest of fairness and neutrality. Again, I urge you to discuss this matter at Talk:Greg Kadel so the entire community can weigh the alternatives. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 16:04, 8 April 2019 (UTC)

Thank you WikiDan61 for your kind advices. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Helene1982 (talkcontribs) 16:15, 8 April 2019 (UTC)

Is everything oki now? or can other people go in and give their edit comments?Many thanks — Preceding unsigned comment added by Helene1982 (talkcontribs) 16:34, 8 April 2019 (UTC)

@Helene1982: I'm not sure what you mean by "is everything OK now?" I've reported your recantation at the Administrators' noticeboard, so that should end that process, but an admin may decide differently (I doubt it). As for the Greg Kadel page, I note that you have not yet commented at the talk page, so that page remains in a state that you disagree with. You are free to engage in the discussion, in a civil manner. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 16:56, 8 April 2019 (UTC)

Hello again, many thanks for you beeing so quick back to me. Are you talking about taking the edit back to the: Revision as of 18:20, 5 February 2017 ???

is that the one you will take it back to? My english is not perfect, so I dont understand where to leave my comments on your edit?

I just want him to grow again as he is working for various famous magazines and brands again. Since it has not been any actions towards him and the girls doesnt say their names I think it should be removed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Helene1982 (talkcontribs) 17:12, 8 April 2019 (UTC)

@Helene1982: I'm sorry. I don't understand your question. The Greg Kadel page continues, as of this moment, to contain information about the allegations against him, and his loss of contracts due to those allegations. If you would like to see that information removed, you need to edit Talk:Greg Kadel and make your case there. If your English is not good enough to understand these instructions, I cannot help you further. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 17:16, 8 April 2019 (UTC)

re: 'Causes of Seperation'[edit]


  • 'Causes' is a published novel.
  • Available to the public.
  • Has decent sales numbers.
  • Is book 2 in a series - the first book merits inclusion in Wikipedia.

I believe the preceding points, and not it's award nomination, merit inclusion in Wiki.

How can I patch up the article so it passes scrutiny?

~bdunbar — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bkdunbar (talkcontribs) 18:02, 8 April 2019 (UTC)

@Bkdunbar: Taking your points in order:
  • Being a published novel is not, in itself, a sign of notability (especially given that Morlock Publishing seems to exist solely for the purpose of publishing Corcoran's books).
  • Ditto "available to the public."
  • Define "decent sales numbers" (which are unmentioned in the draft, by the way).
  • I would argue that the first book does not merit inclusion at Wikipedia, but that's my opinion, and not necessarily shared by the community, but notability is not inherited.
As Causes of Separation has only been nominated for, but not yet won, the Prometheus Award (which does not appear to constitute a "major" literary award, even in the sci-fi genre), it may be too soon for its own article. However, if you can demonstrate that the novel has received significant coverage in independent media, you might make a case for promoting this draft to article status.

Elisabeth Scott[edit]

Dear Dan, I have read your message re citations. If you kindly take a look at the webpage Inspirational member! you will see an entry regarding Elisabeth Scott. Perhaps you would advise as to whether this will suffice. We have not yet added Dr Doris Odlum. Sylvia A Fox (talk) 13:54, 12 April 2019 (UTC)

@Sylvia A Fox: It's a weak reference (wherein an organization if claiming for itself the honour of having had a notable member, which is a nice claim to fame, but not independently verified). I'd prefer a stronger reference for the claim, if possible. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 19:57, 12 April 2019 (UTC)

Algiers: Capital for revolutionaries[edit]

Hello, I saw your notification that my draft about Algiers as a capital for revolutionaries is against the neutrality principle. Since I'm writing for the first time a Wikipedia Article, I wanted to ask if only the title is the problem or also the content? Could you maybe give me some more details?

Thanks for your help! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Silserchranz (talkcontribs) 21:16, 18 April 2019 (UTC)

@Silserchranz: Predominantly the title. A better title would be "Revolutionary activities in Algeria". Concentrating on the activities (which the draft mostly does) without giving the impression that Algeria is more or less a hotbed of such activities (unless such a comparison can be drawn from reliable sources which specifically compare revolutionary activity in Algeria to anyplace else) would be a good start.

Contested deletion[edit]

This page should not be speedy deleted as an unambiguous copyright infringement, because... I am sohel sk, Besically I manage the official website of Dev Entertainment Ventures, That Article ( also Written by me its not a copy, so please Remove The Copyright claim as soon as Possible from The Wikipedia page of Password (2019 film) --Sohel1997 (talk) 13:35, 19 April 2019 (UTC) @WikiDan61:

@Sohel1997: The Password page at clearly displays a Copyright claim at the bottom of the page. Its text can therefore not be included here at Wikipedia unless someone who can be verified to work with this organization contacts the Wikimedia Foundation. (See WP:Donating copyrighted material.) But if you do this, anyone can take this text and use if for any purpose; is this really what you want? I'm also curious: did the title of the film change from Dark Net to Password sometime during development? The synopsis says that "Dark Net delves into...", but the film's title is Password so the synopsis makes no sense. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 16:02, 19 April 2019 (UTC)
@Sohel1997: You also need to read that pages on WP:COI and WP:PAID. If your job involves editing Wikipedia, you need to make the disclosures on WP:PAID. Ravensfire (talk) 22:31, 20 April 2019 (UTC)

Duplicate drafts with different titles[edit]

The duplicates are Draft:Algiers: Capital for revolutionaries and Draft:Revolutionary activities in Algeria. Mitchumch (talk) 05:15, 21 April 2019 (UTC)

I brought this to your attention because you last looked at "Draft:Algiers: Capital for revolutionaries" on 16:48, 18 April 2019. It looks like the creator of the draft you looked at decided to circumvent your assessment that "It is unlikely to be accepted for publication." and published the content the next day on 19 April 2019 under the title "Draft:Revolutionary activities in Algeria". Should I go elsewhere to resolve this issue? Mitchumch (talk) 09:10, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
@Mitchumch: I contacted the user on their talk page and gave advice on neutralizing the article, including changing the title. Apparently, not knowing about page moves, they chose to recreate the article at a new title. I still think the draft is problematic. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 11:31, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
My concern is the editor may not return to Wikipedia. Their edit history only consist of two days worth of work - 18 April 2019 to create "Draft:Algiers: Capital for revolutionaries" and 19 April 2019 to move "Draft:Revolutionary activities in Algeria" into article space. Mitchumch (talk) 12:24, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
@Mitchumch: I believe the draft that has been published should be returned to Draft space. It is clearly not ready for publication. If the author chooses not to return to finish it, it will eventually be deleted as an abandoned draft. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 12:28, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
@Mitchumch: I see no evidence that Draft:Revolutionary activities in Algeria has been moved to article space. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 12:30, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
Sorry. I thought the title may have the term "Draft" in it, but still register as an article space page. I think that may be what the author thought they were doing. Why else would that person create a second page with duplicate content and different title? Mitchumch (talk) 12:38, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
@Mitchumch: Because I told them to. (Well, not exactly, but I did tell them that the article title was highly problematic. (You can see the brief discussion here on my talk page, a few topics up from this one.) WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 13:13, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
Do you want a new user to also initiate a deletion request for one of the articles? I can understand the move function, but it seems a bit much to ask a new user to clean-up this mess. Mitchumch (talk) 19:56, 29 April 2019 (UTC)
So, fix it. You found a problem. You don't need my permission to fix the problem. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 21:35, 29 April 2019 (UTC)

Gasoline Lollipops[edit]

Hi Dan, this is Adam Perry from Gasoline Lollipops. I just came across a Gasoline Lollipops entry someone created, and wow, it looked messy and didn't include many references. I corrected some biographical history and added articles from six reputable publications on the band, which won Denver Westword's "Best Country Artist" award in 2016 and 2018 and has won Colorado Daily's "Best Local Band/Musician" award three times (2014, 2015 and 2017).

@2603:300B:5CF:4000:18DF:6C3D:CC75:8C09: Adam, I believe you've already been warned about the conflict of interest issues involved with writing about your own band. Also, your updates have already been reviewed by another editor and found still insufficient to move forward to publication. Basically, you might be a hot band in Denver, but Wikipedia wants a broader indication of notability. (See WP:BAND). WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 02:39, 23 April 2019 (UTC)

Editing Jess Hynes[edit]

Sorry wikiDan - I am completely new to Wikipedia and only recently began to be concerned that my page seemed a bit out of wack and needed a bit of clean out and an update. I have only today been looking at the rules and realise that the information can only be changed by someone who isn't me, so have contacted Wikipedia for help and advice! The changes I have made tell a more expedient, accurate and updated story of my career so far and I would really like to keep them. Is there anything I can do? Mrs Adam Jessica Hynes (talk) 20:57, 9 May 2019 (UTC)

@Mrs Adam Jessica Hynes: As you have been advised, if there are changes you'd like to see on the Jessica Hynes page, please address your comments to Talk:Jessica Hynes. Make clear specifically what changes you would like to see, and offer as much evidence as possible (citations from reliable sources) to verify that your requested changes are legitimate. I'm not sure that "expedient" is a goal we're trying to achieve here at Wikipedia, although accurate and updated certainly are. I note that your changes removed some of the older biographical bits in the article. I'm not sure that's proper: early career history is as important as recent history in showing a full career arc. I also note that you've removed information about "Political activism" despite that information being well-sourced. I'm afraid that sort of information will probably remain in the article: notable persons' political views are considered valid content for an encyclopedia article, especially when the subject has been politically active (making public statements and appearances). As much as we all might like to whitewash our past, we don't get to do that here at Wikipedia. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 21:18, 9 May 2019 (UTC)


Thanks for your time in replying. Wikipedia have also been in touch and explained the procedure and have been very helpful. I was interested in your statement that 'Wikipedia doesn't work like that' in reference to your speculation that I would not be able to make an edit and remove a section headed 'political activism'. Is 'Wikipedia' a committee of anonymous Internet users who decide what is or isn't relevant or factual via the talk page? If so, how many of you are there and could you explain specifically and in detail the procedure of deciding what is included and what is excluded please? Who makes the final decision? I absolutely and completely understand the need for verifiable facts on an encyclopedia page - although the internet itself is not as vigorously policed as Wikipedia its the best we've got I suppose. My issue is - it is the selection and curation of those 'facts' that may or may not constitute a bias or defamation of a persons life and character. For example - my sit-com 'Up the Women' which was nominated for a writers guild award, is a well documented and historical series given that it was the last one to be filmed at the old BBC TV centre, yet it is omitted from the career section of my page and a quote from a ten year old article in reference to childrens book 'Ants in the Marmalade' which I failed to get published, is included. One could come to the conclusion that in choosing to include a minor failed project from ten years ago over a major completed one that is more recent is deliberately intended to make my life and career look rather shabby. Also in reference to my 'political activism' this heading itself is absolutely misleading. I tweeted once about voting Labour, perhaps i shouldn't have but one tweet does not constitute as 'political activism' 'Political Activity' at most. The most 'political' thing I do is visit schools and support drama departments because they are struggling. I don't think this is political I just think it's the right thing to do. That is supportable fact and yet that is also omitted. You see my point - I have no desire to' white wash' my life but I look forward recieving a lengthy and detailed breakdown of exactly how the facts of my life and career are chosen, compiled and included in the worlds biggest online encyclopedia.

Thank you for your time, I'm sure you have better things to do but I'm thrilled if you don't. Kind regards Mrs Jessica Hynes Mrs Adam Jessica Hynes (talk) 05:04, 10 May 2019 (UTC)

@Mrs Adam Jessica Hynes: The Wikipedia community is comprised of people like you and me: regular people who decide they want to edit the encyclopedia. There is no "Wikipedia committee", there are just people who have registered an account to edit here. As to how decisions are made as to what content should stay and what content should be removed, it is a matter of discussion and consensus. If you feel that there is information on the page that does not belong, make your case at the talk page. Other users will weigh in on whether your request to remove the material is legitimate or not and if consensus is reached, the material will be removed. But the simple fact that you do not like that the material is there is not sufficient cause to remove it. (Working on the assumption that you are actually Ms Hynes here:) If you are uncomfortable with this publicisation of your past political activities, that discomfort in itself is not sufficient grounds to remove the material. If, on the other hand, you feel (and can verify through some reliable source) that the material improperly portrays your political activism (perhaps a single story was published that misrepresented your views), then the material should probably be removed. But it's all a matter of consensus. Make your point, seek opinions, and then we can move forward with whatever decision is made. (By the way, if you make the point at the talk page, and no one joins the discussion after a week or so, I would not object to you removing the information based on your attempt to build consensus. Just make the attempt.) WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 12:54, 10 May 2019 (UTC)
@Mrs Adam Jessica Hynes: I've removed the "Political activisim" section from the Jessica Hynes article. Clearly, one tweet and a parody video by the "Siobhan Sharpe" character do not make for political activism. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 20:23, 10 May 2019 (UTC)

Joel's draft article "Luna Parc": removal of unrelated images.[edit]

Hi Dan,

I just looked at your work (on this article, and on some other articles), and am truly impressed. You keep the best interests of Wikipedia in mind. You contribute intelligently, objectively, civilly, and reasonably. Moreover, you articulate issues with extraordinary clarity. I'm proud to volunteer alongside such high caliber. Thanks for all you do, sir!

Yesterday 9-May-2019, you had removed an irrelevant Wikimedia Commons photograph from the "Luna Parc" draft article (

I agree with your action. The photo was just a placeholder until a Wikipedian could get an appropriate (relevant, quality, not in violation of copyrights, etc) image. I planned to try to email Luna Parc founder Mr. Boscarino to ask if he would upload a few illustrative images to Commons. I don't know how or if he'll respond - hopefully he doesn't dismiss me as a spammer. ;-)

Thank you for your vigilance, sir. I wholeheartedly share your desire for good content.

JoelDougal (talk) 16:40, 10 May 2019 (UTC)

@JoelDougal: There are placeholder images available at Wikipedia (see, for example, File:Placeholder.png). These images would better serve the purpose of showing that you intend to add an image to your draft, without giving the impression that you are trying to fool people into thinking the park looks different than it really does.

Joel's draft article "Luna Parc": reliability of cited sources for claims made[edit]

Hi Dan,

Again, thanks for all you do, sir! :-)

Yesterday 9-May-2019, you suggested that the Luna Parc article lacked sufficient evidence that the topic has been the subject of significant coverage in reliable sources. (

I've made approximately sixteen improvements to the draft article last night and this morning 10-May-2019 ( These changes should resolve your concerns. Please give me another chance.

The claims made in the Luna Parc article are factual. They are not opinion, nor speculative. For example, the article does not make claims such as "recruited some of the finest musicians", "hoped that his youth and exuberance would rejuvenate", "thrived financially and artistically", "is seen by many as a beginning step toward great careers", nor "made a generous grant", nor "accomplished vocalist".

The factual claims made in the Luna Parc article are objective. They are not subjective.

The objective factual claims made in the Luna Parc article are neutral. They are not biased towards a point of view.

The objective factual claims made in the Luna Parc article are not based on original research. All claims are based on independent, unbiased, 3rd party, published, cited facts.

The objective factual claims made in the Luna Parc article are not controversial (e.g., allegations of sex abuse, athletes doping, political positions).

No claims made in the Luna Parc article are exceptional, challenged, or contrary to prevailing views of the relevant community. Thus exceptional sources are not required.

I believe the cited sources are highly reliable for exactly the narrow neutral objective factual claims that the Luna Parc article makes. In some citations Wikipedia can count on best-in-class editorial oversight over staff-authored journalistic pieces (New York Times, Tribune Publishing, Morris Communications, Globe Pequot Press, CNN). In some citations Wikipedia can count on excellent editorial oversight over staff-authored journalistic pieces (, Discovery Channel, HGTV, Times-Herald Record, Leaf Enterprises, Lee Enterprises). In some citations Wikipedia can count on the publisher being the governing authority (IRS, Luna Parc - e.g., for hours of operation). In some citations Wikipedia can count on the publisher demonstrably being a subject matter experts (SME) and authority in the relevant field supporting the article claim (Oddities: Kralyevich "Weird US", Weird NJ "Weird NJ", Discovery Channel HGTV) (Art, especially sculpture and mosaic: SHAMc, SAMA).

In some citations Wikipedia can count on the narrow factual claim relying only on 3rd party published material that was a direct recording of reality (e.g., still photographs of property, still photos of art, audiovisual video recordings of artist being interviewed, audiovisual video recordings of property being physically toured). Thus somewhat less faith needs to be placed in the publisher or the publisher's fact-checking and editorial processes. For example, an visual image of the bright yellow and orange and green colors obviates a fact-checker evaluation of the journalist's text assertion "bright colors". Wikipedia's journalistic goal remain verifiable fact, and that goal is met by the image.

No source cited in the Luna Parc article has a poor reputation for checking the facts, or a real or apparent conflict of interest.

All sources cited represent pieces that are dedicated to Luna Parc. None were just indirect references, tangential discussions, or just passing mentions.

I've analyzed every citation below in an effort to honour your time. Hope this helps:

I believe reasonable Wikipedians would consider the following 4 publishing sources to be sufficiently reliable for most objective factual claims in Wikipedia articles regarding matters anywhere in the world:

  • Bloomfield NJ-based "Weird NJ Inc" (books, TV show)

  • Morris Communications Globe Pequot Press book "New Jersey Curiosities: Quirky Characters, Roadside Oddities & Other Offbeat Stuff"

To address your (legitimate) concerns, I erred on the side of citation clutter. At least that will protect Wikipedia from future linkrot.

Thank you for your vigilance, sir. I wholeheartedly share your desire for good content.

NPR Newsletter No.18[edit]

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Hello WikiDan61,

WMF at work on NPP Improvements

Niharika Kohli, a product manager for the growth team, announced that work is underway in implementing improvements to New Page Patrol as part of the 2019 Community Wishlist and suggests all who are interested watch the project page on meta. Two requested improvements have already been completed. These are:

  • Allow filtering by no citations in page curation
  • Not having CSD and PRODs automatically marked as reviewed, reflecting current consensus among reviewers and current Twinkle functionality.
Reliable Sources for NPP

Rosguill has been compiling a list of reliable sources across countries and industries that can be used by new page patrollers to help judge whether an article topic is notable or not. At this point further discussion is needed about if and how this list should be used. Please consider joining the discussion about how this potentially valuable resource should be developed and used.

Backlog drive coming soon

Look for information on the an upcoming backlog drive in our next newsletter. If you'd like to help plan this drive, join in the discussion on the New Page Patrol talk page.

draft:Hugo Freund[edit]

@WikiDan61: Hello! A have a question about the article( Can you review this article and post it on the site? Thank you! Earth0001 (talk) 14:06, 22 May 2019 (UTC)Earth0001

@Earth0001: I've taken a look, but I do not choose to publish the draft at this time for the following reasons:
  1. The draft does not use inline citations, which help readers understand which references verify which facts of the article.
  2. The subject does not, in my opinion, meet the criteria for inclusion at Wikipedia. The sources you've listed are not evidence of significant coverage of Freund; rather, they are images of his jewelry store, of some products from his store that are currently for sale as antiques, and a database listing of him as one of the sadly too many victims of the Holocaust. (The fact that the entry is translated from is not significant. Each Wikipedia community maintains their own standards for what is and is not included; clearly the community has not (yet) decided that this article should be removed.)
Should you wish to improve the article and have it re-evaluated, I suggest you use the WP:AFC process so that your request for review will receive a wider audience. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 14:29, 22 May 2019 (UTC)


Hello! I would like to write that this person is part of our family history and I am doing everything possible so that my grandfather was on Wikipedia. Yes, we, as a continuation of our family history, are trying to resume his business. But, first of all, naturally, it is about the person himself. In my opinion, every talented person who died during the Holocaust has a place to be on Wikipedia. This is a kind of encyclopedia in which worthy people deserve to be alive or dead. Please add this article just because other people can edit it and add new links.

Thank you! Earth0001 (talk)

@Earth0001: I applaud your dedication to your family history, but Wikipedia has rather strict rules about who or what gets included, and I'm afraid that your opinion about the inclusion of your grandfather's biography does not agree with those rules. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 22:43, 22 May 2019 (UTC)


Sorry, but I had to search the magazine of the 1930s in the Czech archive, where there is a huge article about Hugo Freund. The same article was added to the article ( In my opinion, this is a serious confirmation of its significance and existence in general. What else do you need for add this article? Thank you in advance. Earth0001 (talk)
@Earth0001: I don't see the reference to the article you're talking about at either the draft or the article. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 11:31, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
You do not see my link? This magazine is in the article about his company “Hugo Freund & Co” ( on the Czech Wikipedia. Vintage black and white magazine in 1933. If you do not see it, I can send on email.Earth0001 (talk)
@Earth0001: No, I don't see a link to any magazine article on cs:Hugo Freund & Co. I see:
  • A link to a slideshare page with pictures of Freund's shop (but no magazine article)
  • A link to the Holocaust database listing for Freund
  • A link to a collectors' website listing a lipstick holder sold by Freund
  • A link to what appears to be a website that sells collectible paper artifacts, which in this case, happens to be a stock certificate from Freund's company
Did I miss something? WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 00:22, 24 May 2019 (UTC)

Yes, I found these links on the Internet, the rest I found in the archives of the Czech State Library. The pages of the article are much larger (about 10 pages), I uploaded only a couple of photos. Naturally, I can provide you with a link to the whole article. I can add a photo directly to the article, if it helps me. What do you think?

Thank you WikiDan61 for your kind words and advices. I'll take them seriously. Thank you for communication. Earth0001 (talk)

@Earth0001: It took me a while to figure out that this link is actually a series of photographs of pages from the Czech magazine Časoměr. I don't speak or read Czech, so I can't be sure, but this appears to be an advertising supplement so I'm not sure it's a great source. In either case, rather than referencing the source as a slideshare page, I've recreated the reference as a magazine citation, with a link to the slideshare site as an archive. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 11:58, 28 May 2019 (UTC)
@WikiDan61: Yes, this magazine is in Czech. If you want I will try to translate it. If I understand correctly, it is better to load all pages, for example, on a dropbox and add to the article as a source? would it help me?Earth0001 (talk)
@Earth0001: No, that would not be a good idea. Publishing material online that you don't own the copyright to is problematic. A citation that provides the name of the magazine and its publication date is sufficient: the magazine is likely archived somewhere that someone could access to verify, and that's sufficient. If you could please translate the magazine's date of publication, and update the citation template (replace "year = 1933" with "date = ...") to provide more accurate information about the publication, that would be terribly helpful. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 22:10, 28 May 2019 (UTC)
@WikiDan61: Please, look at my article, I corrected the title of the link to the magazine and added two new categories. Earth0001 (talk)
@WikiDan61: Hello! I followed your instructions all the time. Tell me please, is this enough? Will you add an article? Thank you. Earth0001 (talk)
@Earth0001: I'm still not convinced of Freund's notability. A single article about his company is not even sufficient to establish the notability of his company, let alone of the man himself. I suggest you follow the directions at WP:AFC to submit the article for actual review through the AFC process: another editor may reach a different conclusion. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 12:51, 3 June 2019 (UTC)
@WikiDan61: Please look now at my article. Did I specify the code for an open discussion correctly? Did you mean it? Thank you in advance. Earth0001 (talk)
@Earth0001: No. You need to add the "submit" template to the page. At the top of the page, type:

Regarding editing of page Record Producers[edit]

My removal of information on that page was not a blanket deletion. There is blatantly misleading and false information in that section. The second paragraph begins by saying "They also discovered only 2 percent of music producers are women" which is false, inaccurate, and misleading. The study clearly states that the subset used were producers who had songs on the top 300 charts in america between 2007 and 2017. the data is not there to make such a blanket statement. Furthermore no other section mentions winning awards or chart placements, as it is not relevant to the topic of Record Producers. I don't believe this section should be entirely deleted but in it's current state, it does need to be heavily revised in order to be factual and neutral. MontclairReality (talk) 14:21, 3 June 2019 (UTC) comment added by MontclairReality (talkcontribs) 14:16, 3 June 2019 (UTC)

@MontclairReality: Your edit was bold, but perhaps too bold. It's the kind of thing that should be discussed first. Now that you have opened a discussion, I have no problem with the edit as those who watch the page closely will weigh in on your arguments.

Can you let me know why you rejected Continuous Innovation Framework[edit]

Hi Dan,

Apparently, you rejected the page I suggested on the COntinuous Innovation Framework. Could you let me know what was wrong or missing, so that I can fix the propose a better version?


Arent — Preceding unsigned comment added by Arentvantspijker (talkcontribs) 20:00, 24 June 2019 (UTC)

@Arentvanspijker: I'm sorry my comments on the draft itself were not sufficiently clear. Let me attempt to clarify. In order to be considered for inclusion at Wikipedia, a topic (the Continuous Innovation Framework, in this case) must have been covered in some significant fashion by some media outlet that is independent of the topic. In this case, that would mean that a newspaper, magazine, scholarly journal or major website (one with a record of editorial oversight) has published a full article (not just a blurb or announcement) on the topic, not written by anyone involved with the topic. The references you provided in your draft link to articles about the concepts on which CoIn is based, but not to any articles that discuss CoIn at all. If you can show that this concept has been covered significantly, the draft can be re-reviewed. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 20:52, 24 June 2019 (UTC)

New Page Review newsletter July-August 2019[edit]

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Hello WikiDan61,

WMF at work on NPP Improvements

More new features are being added to the feed, including the important red alert for previously deleted pages. This will only work if it is selected in your filters. Best is to 'select all'. Do take a moment to check out all the new features if you have not already done so. If anything is not working as it should, please let us know at NPR. There is now also a live queue of AfC submissions in the New Pages Feed. Feel free to review AfCs, but bear in mind that NPP is an official process and policy and is more important.


Articles are still not always being checked thoroughly enough. If you are not sure what to do, leave the article for a more experienced reviewer. Please be on the alert for any incongruities in patrolling and help your colleagues where possible; report patrollers and autopatrolled article creators who are ostensibly undeclared paid editors. The displayed ORES alerts offer a greater 'at-a-glance' overview, but the new challenges in detecting unwanted new content and sub-standard reviewing do not necessarily make patrolling any easier, nevertheless the work may have a renewed interest factor of a different kind. A vibrant community of reviewers is always ready to help at NPR.


The backlog is still far too high at between 7,000 and 8,000. Of around 700 user rights holders, 80% of the reviewing is being done by just TWO users. In the light of more and more subtle advertising and undeclared paid editing, New Page Reviewing is becoming more critical than ever.

Move to draft

NPR is triage, it is not a clean up clinic. This move feature is not limited to bios so you may have to slightly re-edit the text in the template before you save the move. Anything that is not fit for mainspace but which might have some promise can be draftified - particularly very poor English and machine and other low quality translations.

Notifying users

Remember to use the message feature if you are just tagging an article for maintenance rather than deletion. Otherwise articles are likely to remain perma-tagged. Many creators are SPA and have no intention of returning to Wikipedia. Use the feature too for leaving a friendly note note for the author of a first article you found well made or interesting. Many have told us they find such comments particularly welcoming and encouraging.


Admins are now taking advantage of the new time-limited user rights feature. If you have recently been accorded NPR, do check your user rights to see if this affects you. Depending on your user account preferences, you may receive automated notifications of your rights changes. Requests for permissions are not mini-RfAs. Helpful comments are welcome if absolutely necessary, but the bot does a lot of the work and the final decision is reserved for admins who do thorough research anyway.

Other news

School and academic holidays will begin soon in various places around the Western world. Be on the lookout for the usual increase in hoax, attack, and other junk pages.

Our next newsletter might be announcing details of a possible election for co-ordinators of NPR. If you think you have what it takes to micro manage NPR, take a look at New Page Review Coordinators - it's a job that requires a lot of time and dedication.

Proposed copy for Advance A/S article

Advance is a Copenhagen-based advertising and marketing agency. It is currently one of the largest independent agencies in Denmark, employing over 60 people. The agency is known for its work with LEGO, Coloplast, Piz Buin and Ipren.


The agency was founded in Copenhagen in 1976 as a result of the Ted Bates network winning Playmobil as a new client. LEGO was a pre-existing client and having Playmobil as a new client meant there was a conflict of interest. The solution was to create a new agency. This resulted in the development of Advance, the new spin-off agency, who would continue working with LEGO.



LEGO is Advance’s oldest client with a partnership totalling more than 40 years.

Advance’s defining moment with LEGO came with LEGO Bionicle – a subsidiary of the LEGO Technic series and, according to LEGO CEO (1979-2004), Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen, “… a huge contributing factor in reviving LEGO at a critical time”. Unlike previous LEGO themes, LEGO Bionicle utilized an original story universe disseminated across various media channels to prove a context for the toy. Set in an alternative fantasy universe it followed the good versus evil saga of the Toa – a tribe of heroic cyborgs. Launched in Europe and Australasia in 2000 and then the Americas in 2001, it became a bestseller for LEGO over its 10-year lifespan. Production was discontinued in 2010 before a 2-year revival in 2015.

The success of Bionicle led to Advance having input on other collaborative projects such as Hero Force and Eco Force, as well as creating campaigns and storytelling for the LEGO Friends, LEGO Disney and LEGO DC Super Hero Girls lines.

Coloplast is a Danish global company that focuses on creating medical devices and services related to ostomy, urology, continence and wound-care and is known for its innovative, state-of-the-art products. Since 2009, Advance has acted as Coloplast’s Global Lead agency for Continence and Ostomy Care.

As well as creating numerous materials and campaigns for Coloplast’s products, Advance worked with the brand to develop the interactive app, WheelMate, which allows users to find and asses wheelchair-friendly toilets and parking spaces so that others can locate and use these toilets when necessary.

There are now 100,000 WheelMate users around the world.

Piz Buin[edit]

Johnson & Johnson brand, Piz Buin, is a premium European sun care brand and has been client of Advance since 2009. In 2015, Advance created the “Where have you been?” brand platform which continues to drive growth in key markets. In 2016, Piz Buin achieved their highest market share goals to date.


If is a property and insurance company with more than 3.6 million customers in the Nordics and Baltics. Since becoming a client in 2017, Advance have helped to create IF’s new strategic communication platform for the Danish market.


Ipren is a brand of Ibuprofen in Sweden and a client of Advance since 2013. During Advance’s tenure, Ipren went from the #3 to the #1 painkiller brand in Sweden.


Widex is a Danish company, and sixth largest hearing aid manufacturer in the world. Advance have helped them develop several successful campaigns and product launches.

CHR Hansen[edit]

CHR Hansen is a global bioscience company that develops natural solutions for the food, nutritional, pharmaceutical and agricultural industries. Since being a client of Advance, the agency has helped them communicate their technical knowledge to multiple audiences, playing a key role in creating campaign concepts and communication strategies.


DOT is the public transport organisation which operates across Sjælland/ Zealand. Advance helped them to communicate the benefits of public transport across all media. In 2016, Advance helped them develop a new app, ‘Pendlertjek’. This app allowed commuters to check their journey time, the best mode of transport, costs per month, effects on transport and even how many calories can be burned depending on the transport chosen.


Nilfisk is a company which specialises in professional cleaning equipment for industrial, commercial and consumer markets. They are headquartered in Denmark. As a client of Advance, the agency produces a full spectrum of global communications services, from B2B to B2C.


Takeda is a global healthcare agency and one of the top 20 pharmaceutical companies in the world. As their agency, Advance help them to build their OTC portfolio as well as promote their individual’s product brands across many digital platforms in Norway and Denmark.


Owned by Johnson & Johnson, o.b. specialise in feminine hygiene products around the world. Advance created the “Be comfortable in your own panties”, campaign through video, print and digital assets in the Nordic regions.


Coop is a Danish retail company and one of Denmark’s most successful online retailers. Since becoming a client of Advance in 2014, the agency has helped to promote their beauty offerings through visual identities and campaigns implemented on the company’s own platforms.

@PFA92: This copy still reads largely as an advertisement for the Advance agency. It lacks any sources, and the company's claim of notability appears to be that it works with notable companies, but notability is not inherited. You'll need to tone down the promotional language, and provide independent sources to verify the article's claims and the company's notability. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 16:56, 7 August 2019 (UTC)

Per Wikipedia's external links policy, only links to reliable third party sites that can provide information beyond that which is contained in the article should be included. The site you're linking too appears to be a personal blog site whose purpose is to advertise various Indian travel services, and therefore does not qualify as a reliable third party site.

Peterborough Ontario Mayor - Refusal to enforce bylaws[edit]

The mayor has stated publicly she refuses to enforce the by-laws. This is proven through her direct statements. "Just know that even though there's a bylaw, it's not actively going to be enforced."

The statement that she refuses to enforce bylaws is accurate.

Can you help me understand what wasn't correct? Trevormerritt (talk) 20:14, 15 August 2019 (UTC)

@Trevormerritt: The version you have most recently added (On August 13, 2019, Peterborough City Council unanimously passed a by-law to eliminate camping in City Parks. Mayor Therrien has stated publicly she will not allow the police to enforce the bylaws as written.) is neutral. The prior version:

Ms. Therrien dragged around the argument 'The Parkway is an antiquated idea, and should not be built.' as one of her arguments. With the progression of the parkway and growth of business, she regrouped and has used her current position to continue her vindictive hatred toward progress. There has been a motion to waste $300,000 on a pair of houses that are in the path of the parkway. Ms. Therrien has also refused to allow police to enforce local by-laws. Victoria Park, located in the downtown core, has been overrun with a horde of drug addicted vandals and the park has become unsafe for the general public. Multiple stabbings have occured in and around the park]. Local business people have been robbed and assaulted.

was entirely non-neutral, specifically in the italicized sections. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 20:47, 15 August 2019 (UTC)

Most of those statements are accurate and can be backed by citations. I will do better going forward.

Thank you for the input. I'll keep getting better. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Trevormerritt (talkcontribs) 23:35, 15 August 2019 (UTC)

@Trevormerrit: Accuracy and neutrality are not mutually exclusive. While it may be true that Therrien made the argument that "the parkway is an antiquated idea", your choice of the language that she "dragged around" the argument makes the statement non-neutral. Similarly, while it may be factually true that she proposed spending $300,000 on renovations of two houses, your representation of that expenditure as a waste of money is non-neutral. Please do take care to avoid such injections of personal opinion into articles in the future. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 12:08, 16 August 2019 (UTC)

Hey Honey.

Seems that facts aren't quite what you're looking for. The stabbings in the park is associated, with the park. The stabbings of people from the encampment on the streets surrounding them, are from the park. You are not aware of the situation and your continued reverts show a bias against that which is documented, cited, and available for review by all.

Please show me what is inaccurate. I've cited all but 1 statment as I am unsure how to state that one hasn't done something and prove it. She hasn't made a statement on record, and the petiution is available. Given that its in the cited article, one can conclue its public and accessible to all. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Trevormerritt (talkcontribs) 12:35, 16 August 2019 (UTC)

Much the way I can't cite that Canada has never invaded Pakistan. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Trevormerritt (talkcontribs) 12:38, 16 August 2019 (UTC)

@Trevormerritt: You added to the article In the weeks prior to the August 13th council meeting, a number of violent crimes were comitted by those camping in the park. You then proceed to list a number of crimes:attempted murder:
  1. There was an attempted murder cited to this source which confirms there was a stabbing, but not that the suspect was someone camping in the park.
  2. there was a local business person beaten and robbed cited to this source which explicitly states "It’s unclear if the suspects were staying at the park."
  3. multiple stabbings cited to this source which makes no mention of the park or its homeless occupants; and this source which explicitly states "there was no immediate word on whether the stabbings were related to the tent cities."
  4. the drug trade cited to this source which (you might be surprised) makes no mention of anyone from the tent city being involved in the drug trade.
  5. and intimidation cited to this source which deals with the fear that the homeless experience living in these conditions, but not to intimidation (and specifically, not to intimidation by the park residents of other city residents).
The point is that you're citing a lot of crime in the neighbourhood and blaming it on the homeless in the park, whereas none of the sources do so. And by including all this material in the article on Diane Therrien, you are implicitly blaming her, even though none of the sources have done so. Your tone in replying to me indicates that you are more interested in airing your grievances than in having a meaningful discussion about the merits of your edits. If you continue to edit in this manner, I will be forced to take this matter to the Biographies of Living Persons Noticeboard where administrators will evaluate your edits and take appropriate actions. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 13:44, 16 August 2019 (UTC)

Thank you for your input.

@Trevormerritt: I'm going to respond to your points one by one below.

I am concerned for the safety of those being stabbed, robbed, and intimidated in and around the park. I apprecieate you are not at risk of being stabbed while you walk to work, but that is the reality that was not the case prior to the 'tent city' being established.

  1. You need to rely on reliable sources that indicate that the presence of the tent city is the direct cause of problems experienced around the park. Your personal experience is not a reliable source.
  2. You need to provide a reliable source that pins the blame for these problems on Ms Therrien. Your own personal opinion on the matter is not relevant.

I will happily document the history of the events on a page that links to Ms. T's page as her clear refusal to enforce bylaws, she has taken responsibility for it.

No, she has not taken responsibility for it (unless you can provide a reliably sourced quote wherein she takes responsibility for these events). You are pinning the responsibility on her because of your personal gripe in the matter.

You have also removed a number of items that are very clearly stated.

Here is a review with the specific statements from the cited articles.

Misinformation was spread claiming no availability of shelter beds[5]. - There has been empty beds the whole time. The table that was there and the items below show the number of available beds.

  1. That table was unsourced.
  2. Again, attempts to blame the mayor for this problem are your own interpretation of the facts; not an interpretation that has been found in any reliable source.

In the weeks prior to the August 13th council meeting, a number of violent crimes were comitted by those camping in the park. There was an attempted murder[6], - Micah Drynan, 27, of age of no fixed address <-- This stabbing was < 50M from the park, the stabber was staying in the park.

The sources do not say that the suspect was staying in the park. That is your inference.

there was a local business person beaten and robbed[7] - Noah Eggleston, 22, of no fixed address, has been arrested and charged with robbery <-- Again, resident of Tent City.

Not in the source cited. (Not all people who are homeless are staying in the tent city, presumably.)

- Jacob Collins, 32, of no fixed address, is charged with robbery. <--- Another tent city resident.

Not in the source cited.

multiple stabbings[8][9] The building at 610 George St. North is a known drug house. This may not be 100% tent city related, but shows the increased crime in the downtown core. The next citation has very little question. Perhaps more context relating to this article would be appropriate.

  1. Known by whom? Is this documented in a reliable source?
  2. How is this related to the tent city?
  3. How is this related to Ms Therrien?

- Known drug city -->

Not sure what your point is here. The link says that drugs and guns were seized at a location, and that the city has a drug problem. How is this related to anything in this discussion?

multiple stabbings[8][9] "Police say the stabbing injuries are related and may have happened at or near Victoria Park." "Yellow police tape was placed around the entranceway of the St. John Centre retirement home and along the sidewalk along Water Street leading up to the entranceway. There was also police tape up around the fountain in Victoria Park for the investigation.

Again, no statement in the sources ascribing these crimes to residents of the tent city.

A forensic investigation unit van was at the scene and officers searched the area with flashlights." "But there was no immediate word on whether the stabbings were related to the tent cities." - to summarize, the police say it may have happened where they had a forensic investigation using flashlights to collect evidence, while keeping those arrested in custody.

To summarize, a crime happened, but there is as yet no evidence to ascribe the crime to a resident of the tent city.

the drug trade[10] "The Peterborough Police Service says an officer on foot patrol observed alleged drug activity taking place in the park on Water Street shortly after 4 p.m." - The officer observed a drug transaction and arrested the person with cocaine. Sounds like drug activity.

Yep, that's drug activity. Nothing in the source to relate it to the tent city or to Ms Therrien.
    • and intimidation[11]

"Donald Eric Robinson, 35, of no fixed address, was charged with causing a disturbance and resisting a peace officer. He was released and will appear in court Aug. 1."

No mention of the tent city. No ascription to Ms Therrien.
    • Those in the park agree it is a dangerous place.[12]

"An unemployed and homeless personal support worker who's been living in a tent at Victoria Park since late June says she and her fiancé take turns sleeping at night for fear of being robbed." "She says one man with a mental health condition howls all night. Cars drive by and people pelt objects at the campers and yell at them to get jobs. Campers fight one another."

With these statements, one can conclude that the tenter is in fear and takes turns sleeping as there are dangerous conditions.

Yep, homeless people live in fear (whether in tent cities or in shelters). That's a universal problem. That doesn't make them all criminals. And your inclusion in the Therrien article implies that she is to blame, but there is not a single reliable source to back that assertion.
    • To respond to the new grouping of homeless, City Council voted unanimously to open 30 additional beds on an emergency basis[13]

30 new beds opened. It was a good move for those in need.

    • even though beds were still available[14].

4 beds were available before the 30 additional beds opened.

    • One complaint in the shelters are drugs, violence, and sexual assault[15].

"Keith says he has stayed at the Warming Room and Brock shelters, but feels more comfortable in a tent once the weather warms. He says there are a lot of problems at the shelters, including drugs, fights and people stealing.

“I was in the Warming Room one time and somebody actually came and peed in my bed,” he explains." - Being urinated on is sexual assualt.

    • One encampment is located at St. John's Anglican Church[16].

"St. John's congregation has been accepting of the campers, Smith said.

"I think most of the congregation understand that we have a front lawn and there are people who need a place to stay." "

    • Neighbours of the St. John's Anglican Church site feel unsafe living next the encampment[17]

"Tenants at the apartment say it's been "hell" living next to the church for the last few weeks." ""We don't feel safe in this building," one woman said." ""I'm petrified now," Sanders said."

    • Over 1700 members of the local community have signed a petition[18]

1701 had signed as of the time I looked.

I am unsure how to cite something that hasn't happened. Much like Canada has never invaded Pakistan, I can't reference something that doesn't exist.

You cite a lack of action by citing a newspaper article that notes that she has yet to respond. Your own statement that she has yet to respond could indicate merely that you missed her response.
    • On August 9, 2019, the church put up a sign indicating they did not want any additional campers[19]

I should have linked to the original Twitter post.

The table shows the numbers as reported by the city.

  1. A link to a source for the table would be useful, if we are to include it.
  2. It's actually irrelevant, because none of this material is germaine to the article about Ms Therrien, because no reliable source has stepped up to blame her for this problem.

I see some areas to adjust, I'm just curious how so many of them, with specific quotes from the articles, ruffles your feathers so much? Trevormerritt (talk) 00:12, 17 August 2019 (UTC)

So, with all the responses above, I'll summarize: you appear to be attempting to synthesize facts based on your own interpretation of the available sources so that you can use this information to air your grievances against Ms Therrien for not taking the actions you want her to take about this problem in your city. I get that. I will state again: Wikipedia is not the place to do this. I cannot emphasize that point strongly enough. At this point, I have given you all the warnings I can, and I will not engage with you further on my talk page. If you wish to open a discussion of the matter at Talk:Diane Therrien, please feel free to do so. If you attempt to replace this material in the article, I will have to take the matter to the appropriate noticeboard to allow Wikipedia administrators to evaluate the situation.

Professional Music Technology review[edit]

Hi there, just letting you know I made the appropriate changes to my article. i hope that helps and you're happy with them! Thanks! Chewyisahero (talk) 14:02, 22 August 2019 (UTC)chewyisahero

@Chewyisahero: I've cleaned up your draft a bit (removed the trivia section -- we try to avoid those at Wikipedia). I'm still concerned about sourcing. Many of the links are either local coverage (PMT is coming to ...) or self-published (the company's own website and YouTube channel). That said, there are some good sources in the article, and the company's notability appears OK. I would definitely lose the list of awards: the MIA does not appear to be a notable organisation, and these kind of industry self-congratulatory awards are almost always considered fluff. I'm comparing your draft to the article about Sam Ash Music, a US music retailer of approximately equal significance. Based on the presence of this article, I believe your draft should qualify for publication when these matters are addressed. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 14:51, 22 August 2019 (UTC)

Hi there, thanks so much for the insight. I've made the changes you suggested and removed the awards section. I apprecviate your help on this article. Please let me know if this is ok now. Chewyisahero (talk) 08:56, 23 August 2019 (UTC)chewyisahero

Re: Adonai Ha`Aretz Bnei Baruch Amity[edit]

Dear Editor,

I am sending this message due to uncertainty if my changes / corrections has succesfully transmitted to your editorial attention.

1) The term Amity is deriving from The most importanct Doctrine of the teaching of Rabbi Michael Laitman regarding (SPIRITUAL) LOVE & CONNECTION of Creatures as way of spiritual correction towards The Creator, hence the word AMITY meaning love/ Fraternity / fellowship.


2) Reference for notability of Adonai Ha`Aretz Bnei Baruch Amity:

- with 219 members and still increasing with time: - Inauguration news:

Thanks for understanding that I gave this extra message. I am new in the use of Wikipedia. I will be better with this in time. Thank you for the kindness.

All the best to Wikipedia, Celina Syuy — Preceding unsigned comment added by Celina Syuy (talkcontribs) 01:33, 26 August 2019 (UTC)

@Celina Syuy: You still haven't yet demonstrated that this is a notable organization. A group of 219 students of one particular branch of kabbalah is not likely to meet the criteria for inclusion. If you want to convince the community otherwise, you're going to have to provide evidence of significant independent coverage of the organization. That means a newspaper or journal article or article published on a major, fact-checked website about your organization not written by a member of your organization. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 02:04, 26 August 2019 (UTC)

Hi dear Editor,

Thank you for the comment regarding the notability of Adonai Ha´aretz Bnei Baruch Amity. I´ll soon submit another source for this matter. However, as to the number of members, how many members should it be as criteria to enter Adonai Ha´Aretz as notable group? I don´t see it mentioned in the rules and criteria for notable group. Thank you for your kindness to answer. all the best, Celina Celina Syuy (talk) 12:16, 26 August 2019 (UTC)

@Celina Syuy: There is no guideline as to the number of members. There is a guideline as to the requirement for significant independent coverage. I point out the size of the group in relation to the likelihood of finding such significant coverage, which I believe is low. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 12:18, 26 August 2019 (UTC)

Dear Editor,

Thank you for the answer. I thought a lot over your comments and I think you were right about questioning the neccesity of this material of ADonai Ha`Aretz BB Amity as " ... significant independent coverage", when, in actual, it is a "branch" of Bnei Baruch, and also in fact, it is the motive of this editing for The Amity, that it should be noted in the right place in the map of Bnei Baruch. With this, I´d say I´ll be deleting this ( independent ) application and do the editing in the page of Bnei Baruch. Thank you for your good advice and guidance. All the best to Wikipedia, Celina Celina Syuy (talk) 22:30, 27 August 2019 (UTC)

Dear Editor,

Sorry, but it didn´t go well just adding information on the page of Bnei Baruch, it is deleted all the time without any explanation. So I´m back and continue working on this thread here afterall. So I´ll be back here with some more editing for this material soon. Thanks. Celina Syuy (talk) 01:54, 28 August 2019 (UTC)

Hi again dear Editor, I just want to ask, I went back and checked the page of Bnei Baruch. The page was now totally edited in such a negative uncontructive way, as if premeditatedly and viciously done with the purpose of destroying the name of Bnei Baruch and Rabbi Laitman, and they keep on deleting my additional positive information. Does Wikipedia allow such vicious editing? So sad .... Celina Syuy (talk) 02:06, 28 August 2019 (UTC)

@Celina Syuy: Wikipedia relies on reliable sources, especially when biographies of living persons are involved. The information about Laitman is completely unsourced. If you can find reliable sources about him, please feel free to add them. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 02:08, 28 August 2019 (UTC)

Dear Editor, yes, it´s exactly what I´m reporting to you. Please Check the page of Bnei Baruch, it´s unreliable information in there, just full of intrigue, and every time I edit it correctly, somebody deletes it wihtout any message why, and edit it with more false info. Seems like somebody is messing with it with malicious vicious purpose. I just hope Wikipedia should check who are those people or that person doing that. Anyway, Thank you. Celina Syuy (talk) 04:55, 28 August 2019 (UTC)

@Celina Syuy: In this version of the Bnei Baruch article, there is a vast amount of "Background" material regarding Michael Laitman, none of which is supported by any citations. Unsourced material may be removed at any time; it is then the responsibility of the editor who wishes to restore that information to provide reliable sources for that information.

On reliable sources of Theory A[edit]

Hi Dan, thank you for reviewing my article. On the point of your rejection of my Theory A due to the lack of reliable evidence, I would like to offer my understanding that the currently proposed Theory A is a stub article. However, it is based on my more developed and evidenced Hyva Hypothesis proposal, which cites several different Universities' studies of various archaeological and cultural episodes of prehistoric Eurasia.

I request that I be able to develop the article on Theory A over time, as it is a much larger amount of research than the Hyperthesis that will need to be conducted to explain the origins of all Earth's present-day humans.

Thank you for your consideration,

Hya — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hyasky (talkcontribs) 14:14, 27 August 2019 (UTC)

@Hyasky: Even as a stub, in order to be acceptable for publication at Wikipedia, the article would need to be based on reliable sources. From what you've told me here, I presume that "Theory A" is a hypothesis of your own formulation, based on your own research. This is not suitable material to publish at Wikipedia. If you wish to try to publish your research in a legitimate journal that supports peer-reviewed original research, you should do so, and if the hypothesis stands up to the peer-review process, then we can include it here at Wikipedia, but not until then. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 14:39, 27 August 2019 (UTC)

Are you asking me to extrapolate on the texts of my reliable sources via footnotes, or to remove my linguistic and cultural conjecture from my hypotheses in order to have them not be considered original research? Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hyasky (talkcontribs) 15:09, 27 August 2019 (UTC)

@Hyasky: I'm asking you to provide reliable sources that talk specifically about "Theory A" or "Hyva Hypothesis". (I have been unable to find any relevant mention using Google.) The fact that these appear to be hypotheses that you yourself have created, and are attempting to use Wikipedia to disseminate, is problematic. If you believe you have done cogent research that should be disseminated, find a reputable journal to publish you work. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 17:11, 27 August 2019 (UTC)

You would need to produce better sources to accompany any requests for changes you would like to see. The version of the article as you edited it is available by viewing the page's history (click the "History" link at the top of the page).

New Page Review newsletter September-October 2019[edit]

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Hello WikiDan61,


Instead of reaching a magic 300 as it once did last year, the backlog approaching 6,000 is still far too high. An effort is also needed to ensure that older unsuitable older pages at the back of the queue do not get automatically indexed for Google.


A proposal is taking place here to confirm a nominated user as Coordinator of NPR.

This month's refresher course

Why I Hate Speedy Deleters, a 2008 essay by long since retired Ballonman, is still as valid today. Those of us who patrol large numbers of new pages can be forgiven for making the occasional mistake while others can learn from their 'beginner' errors. Worth reading.

Deletion tags

Do bear in mind that articles in the feed showing the trash can icon (you will need to have 'Nominated for deletion' enabled for this in your filters) may have been tagged by inexperienced or non NPR rights holders using Twinkle. They require your further verification.

Paid editing

Please be sure to look for the tell-tale signs of undisclosed paid editing. Contact the creator if appropriate, and submit the issue to WP:COIN if necessary. WMF policy requires paid editors to connect to their adverts.

Subject-specific notability guidelines' (SNG). Alternatives to deletion
  • Reviewers are requested to familiarise themselves once more with notability guidelines for organisations and companies.
  • Blank-and-Redirect is a solution anchored in policy. Please consider this alternative before PRODing or CSD. Note however, that users will often revert or usurp redirects to re-create deleted articles. Do regularly patrol the redirects in the feed.
Not English
  • A common issue: Pages not in English or poor, unattributed machine translations should not reside in main space even if they are stubs. Please ensure you are familiar with WP:NPPNE. Check in Google for the language and content, and if they do have potential, tag as required, then move to draft. Modify the text of the template as appropriate before sending it.

Regular reviewers will appreciate the most recent enhancements to the New Pages Feed and features in the Curation tool, and there are still more to come. Due to the wealth of information now displayed by ORES, reviewers are strongly encouraged to use the system now rather than Twinkle; it will also correctly populate the logs.

Stub sorting, by SD0001: A new script is available for adding/removing stub tags. See User:SD0001/StubSorter.js, It features a simple HotCat-style dynamic search field. Many of the reviewers who are using it are finding it an improvement upon other available tools.

Assessment: The script at User:Evad37/rater makes the addition of Wikiproject templates extremely easy. New page creators rarely do this. Reviewers are not obliged to make these edits but they only take a few seconds. They can use the Curation message system to let the creator know what they have done.

DannyS712 bot III is now patrolling certain categories of uncontroversial redirects. Curious? Check out its patrol log.

Mark Wilson (philosopher) page[edit]


Thanks for reviewing my article. I do not understand why I have not shown that the subject merits an article. He is an academic and meets the fifth criterion for notability for academics listed here - - namely, that he 'has held a named chair appointment or "Distinguished Professor" appointment at a major institution of higher education and research.' The website of his academic department at the University of Pittsburgh identifies him as a distinguished professor. Is the problem that the website of his academic department is not an appropriate source for confirming this fact? The 'Specific criteria notes' for the notability of academics at the guideline site for the notability of academics say that 'For documenting that a person has held such an appointment (but not for a judgement of whether or not the institution is a major one), publications of the appointing institution are considered a reliable source.'

I'm new to this, but I really don't see what I'm missing. Please explain.

Thank you! — Preceding unsigned comment added by HegelianCow (talkcontribs) 15:03, 19 September 2019 (UTC)

@HegelianCow: Point taken. I had missed the "distinguished professor" part of WP:ACADEMIC when reviewing. I believe the draft is too short and not supported by reliable sources independent of the subject, but that can also be addressed. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 15:56, 19 September 2019 (UTC)
@WikiDan61: Okay, I've added a bit more information, including references to independent, published, reliable, secondary sources (namely: discussions of Wilson's work in peer-reviewed publications in his academic discipline). Hope that does it. Thanks.

September 2019 GOCE Newsletter[edit]

Guild of Copy Editors September 2019 Newsletter
Writing Magnifying.PNG

Copyeditors progress.png

Hello and welcome to the September newsletter, a brief update of Guild activities since June 2019.

June election: Reidgreg was chosen as lead coordinator, and is being assisted by Baffle gab1978, Miniapolis, Tdslk, and first-time coordinator Twofingered Typist. Jonesey95 took a respite after serving for six years. Thanks to everyone who participated!

June Blitz: From 16 to 22 June, we copy edited articles on the themes of nature and the environment along with requests. 12 participating editors completed 35 copy edits. Final results, including barnstars awarded, are available here.

July Drive: The year's fourth backlog-elimination drive was a great success, clearing all articles tagged in January and February, and bringing the copy-editing backlog to a low of five months and a record low of 585 articles while also completing 48 requests. Of the 30 people who signed up, 29 copyedited at least one article, a participation level last matched in May 2015. Final results and awards are listed here.

August Blitz: From 18 to 24 August, we copy edited articles tagged in March 2019 and requests. 12 participating editors completed 26 copy edits on the blitz. Final results, including barnstars awarded, are available here.

Progress report: As of 03:00, 23 September 2019 (UTC), GOCE copyeditors had processed 413 requests since 1 January. The backlog of tagged articles stood at 599 articles, close to our record month-end low of 585.

Requests page: We are experimenting with automated archiving of copy edit requests; a discussion on REQ Talk (permalinked) initiated by Bobbychan193 has resulted in Zhuyifei1999 writing a bot script for the Guild. Testing is now underway and is expected to be completed by 3 October; for this reason, no manual archiving of requests should be done until the testing period is over. We will then assess the bot's performance and discuss whether to make this arrangement permanent.

September Drive: Our current backlog-elimination drive is open until 23:59 on 30 September (UTC) and is open to all copy editors. Sign up today!

Thank you all again for your participation; we wouldn't be able to achieve what we have without you! Cheers from your GOCE coordinators, Baffle gab1978, Miniapolis, Reidgreg, Tdslk and Twofingered Typist.

@Hafffsahh: The article has more sources now than it did when I reviewed it, but it still doesn't appear that Bin Saqib meets notability guidelines. He is an elected representative of his graduate school student body, which is not sufficient for notability on its own; and he is the founder of what appears to be a relatively small non-profit organization that has introduced an idea created elsewhere into Pakistan. Bin Saqib may well become something someday, but I do not believe he has yet achieved anything worthy of an encyclopedia article. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 11:50, 24 September 2019 (UTC)

Hi, thanks! Bin Saqib was also awarded a highly commended Masters Student of the Year, 2019 in the UK. Would that be a notable factor to mention? --Hafffsahh (talk) 13:08, 24 October 2019 (UTC)

@Hafffsahh: Doubtful. My Google search shows me that many different institutions award such an honor; unless Bin Saqib's award was presented at the national level (i.e. best Masters Student of the entire UK), it is not likely to be notable. If presented at the national level, and covered by a national level news organization (rather than simply by the organization that presented the award), that might be considered notable. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 14:13, 24 October 2019 (UTC)

Hi @WikiDan61:! Thanks for the explanation. However, the award was covered by various media houses in Pakistan. Such as: 1., 2., 3., 4. Also, he was the only Pakistani to be given this award this year. What do you suggest now?--Hafffsahh (talk) 10:55, 28 October 2019 (UTC)

@Hafffsahh: I'm still not convinced of the notability of this award, or of the notability that it confers to the winner, but feel free to resubmit the draft (with these new references added) and see if anyone else chooses to promote it to article space.

Pardis Technology Park[edit]

hello dear WikiDan61.

I received your comments and thank you for responding me. last version of our page, with name "Pardis Technology Park" in Wiki had been updated in 2013, After that year, we developed in a lot of fiels and domains... so i want to refresh statistics and new information in that but you sent me this message with this concept that "these information appeared to be promotional." So, what do i have to do now? i just want to introduce our Technology Park (active in Science & high technology fields) and update our activities in Wikipedia and i don't intend for advertising or promotion or any other activities like that. thank you for your attention. I'm eagerly waiting for your respond. best regards and have a great day ahead...

--Arshia 61 (talk) 11:32, 1 October 2019 (UTC)

@Arshia 61: Based on your use of first person pronouns ("our Technology Park"), I assume that you are affiliated with Pardis Technology Park. Because of this conflict of interest, you should probably avoid editing the article directly. Rather, you should make any requests for changes as the article's talk page and let uninvolved editors evaluate your requests. If you insist on editing the page directly, you must refrain from any kind of promotion (phrases such as "PTP enjoys more comparative and legal advantages and better potential to become a major center for economic, research and scientific activities", "PTP is considered as the most pioneering technology park in Iran", etc.) and you must restrict yourself to statements that can be verified by reliable sources.

Draft: Eyitayo Ogunmola - ReviewApex Zy (talk) 15:00, 4 October 2019 (UTC)[edit]

Hi WikiDan61,

Pursuant to the article i put out on Wikipedia, of which you rejected it publication due to the community policies. I'd suggest you see another version of the article i put out after moderation and following community best practices on Wikipedia.

Here's the link:

I look forward to your response.

Thank you!


Hi @WikiDan61: I've upload a new version of Hyva, after you declined the first version. Can you tell me if is it ok?

Thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by LucaColombo1990 (talkcontribs) 15:54, 8 October 2019 (UTC)

@LucaColombo1990: By my reading, it does not yet merit inclusion. The sources all read very much like press releases issued by the company rather than truly independent coverage. Other readers may disagree. As a draft, it's available for review by more than just me. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 16:20, 25 October 2019 (UTC)

List of lingerie brands[edit]

Hi WikiDan61

As Wikipedia is not a business directory not all the notable brands you have removed do have a Wikipedia articles, even though they are some of the biggest and well-know companies in the industry. The reference given provides links to all the brands so a comprehensive study of the brands for users can be learnt too. Or more simply, as you stated regarding the word 'Notable', if this word was removed the article would resolve the nitpick issue.

Best Regards Jdgaller — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jdgaller (talkcontribs) 17:43, 14 October 2019 (UTC)

@Jgdaller: As you have stated, Wikipedia is not a business directory, and therefore should not strive to list every possible entry in the category (here, lingerie brands). In general, Wikipedia list articles restrict themselves to items that already have Wikipedia articles. This is not universally true, but for a list that has given a specific criterion of listing notable brands, this should be true. If you take issue with the list criterion, and want a list of all brands, that would be a major change to the list's focus and would require a discussion at the list's talk page to get consensus for such a change. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 17:59, 14 October 2019 (UTC)

Hi @WiliDan61 Thank you for getting back so quickly. The focus must be on correct and relevant information, to be able to list as you have stated 'list every possible entry in the category' would be near an impossible achievement. As for the reference is one of the world forefront knowledge base sources in the industry and those brands the source provides should be given as a list criterion. To remove a more in-depth information base criteria is a not-to-provide bases for the article and I would suggest removing the article in it entirety so not the be shown/given a marketing advantage to those brands listed. Best Regards Jdgaller

The reference you provided ([1]) is a single retailer of lingerie. To define their inventory as the definitive list of "notable" lingerie brands would be ludicrous. The existing guidance on list criterion (WP:Write the article first) should be followed to prevent the list from becoming indiscriminate. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 18:51, 14 October 2019 (UTC)

Good catch. I hadn't noticed the "copyright free" nature of the source. I still don't think it's great copy for Wikipedia; I may review for neutrality / tone. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 15:09, 2 November 2019 (UTC)

New Page Review newsletter November 2019[edit]

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Hello WikiDan61,

This newsletter comes a little earlier than usual because the backlog is rising again and the holidays are coming very soon.

Getting the queue to 0

There are now 723 holders of the New Page Reviewer flag! Most of you requested the user right to be able to do something about the huge backlog but it's still roughly less than 10% doing 90% of the work. Now it's time for action.
Exactly one year ago there were 'only' 3,650 unreviewed articles, now we will soon be approaching 7,000 despite the growing number of requests for the NPR user right. If each reviewer soon does only 2 reviews a day over five days, the backlog will be down to zero and the daily input can then be processed by every reviewer doing only 1 review every 2 days - that's only a few minutes work on the bus on the way to the office or to class! Let's get this over and done with in time to relax for the holidays.
Want to join? Consider adding the NPP Pledge userbox.
Our next newsletter will announce the winners of some really cool awards.


Admin Barkeep49 has been officially invested as NPP/NPR coordinator by a unanimous consensus of the community. This is a complex role and he will need all the help he can get from other experienced reviewers.

This month's refresher course

Paid editing is still causing headaches for even our most experienced reviewers: This official Wikipedia article will be an eye-opener to anyone who joined Wikipedia or obtained the NPR right since 2015. See The Hallmarks to know exactly what to look for and take time to examine all the sources.

  • It is now possible to select new pages by date range. This was requested by reviewers who want to patrol from the middle of the list.
  • It is now also possible for accredited reviewers to put any article back into the New Pages Feed for re-review. The link is under 'Tools' in the side bar.
Reviewer Feedback

Would you like feedback on your reviews? Are you an experienced reviewer who can give feedback to other reviewers? If so there are two new feedback pilot programs. New Reviewer mentorship will match newer reviewers with an experienced reviewer with a new reviewer. The other program will be an occasional peer review cohort for moderate or experienced reviewers to give feedback to each other. The first cohort will launch November 13.

Second set of eyes
  • Not only are New Page Reviewers the guardians of quality of new articles, they are also in a position to ensure that pages are being correctly tagged for deletion and maintenance and that new authors are not being bitten. This is an important feature of your work, especially while some routine tagging for deletion can still be carried out by non NPR holders and inexperienced users. Read about it at the Monitoring the system section in the tutorial. If you come across such editors doing good work, don't hesitate to encourage them to apply for NPR.
  • Do be sure to have our talk page on your watchlist. There are often items that require reviewers' special attention, such as to watch out for pages by known socks or disruptive editors, technical issues and new developments, and of course to provide advice for other reviewers.
Arbitration Committee

The annual ArbCom election will be coming up soon. All eligible users will be invited to vote. While not directly concerned with NPR, Arbcom cases often lead back to notability and deletion issues and/or actions by holders of advanced user rights.

Community Wish list

There is to be no wish list for WMF encyclopedias this year. We thank Community Tech for their hard work addressing our long list of requirements which somewhat overwhelmed them last year, and we look forward to a successful completion.

The ministry of silly walks[edit]

The fact that these women were "inspired" by the Monty Pythons to do their silly walk during the Grek national parade on 28th October 2019, does not mean that what they performed was indeed the silly walk, hence my objection. In fact, I believe that what they performed is a disgrace to them, therefore it should not be on the page. However, since I do not intend to engage in an edit war, do as you please as long as you accept my comment which is also true - that their action was met with severe criticism by the public. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Blackadder1058 (talkcontribs) 06:50, 4 November 2019 (UTC)

@Blackadder1058: As I read the available sources, the women were engaging in a protest, and performing moves "inspired by" Monty Python. Their replication of John Cleese's gait may have been imperfect (somewhat irrelevant, as the Ministry of Silly Walks skit actually involved several silly walks), but the criticism directed against them was in regard to their protest and its motivation, not about their fidelity to Monty Python. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 12:46, 4 November 2019 (UTC)
It is not up to us to decide whether some silly walks require funding from the ministry over others; that is the job of John Cleese. When it comes to the article, we use what sources say, which is that it is inspired by the sketch. I've changed it to say "a silly walk" rather than "the silly walk", as there are many silly walks that can be inspired by or are derived from the sketch. Vermont (talk) 13:38, 4 November 2019 (UTC)

An automated process has detected that when you recently edited Joey Carbstrong, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Good Morning Britain (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are usually incorrect, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of unrelated topics with similar titles. (Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.)

Edits regarding Ashwini Baishnab page[edit]

Dear Dan,

I have edited the page and removed the content which may seem promotional. For the rest, I have added multiple references. Can you please let me know why my edits are being undone. I am new to this, I apologise if the content seemed promotional. I think there might be some confusion in the name. All the references are for Mr Ashwini Vaishnaw, but the title of the page is Ashwini Baishnab which is in Odiya (an Indian Language). — Preceding unsigned comment added by Abhishek.anita12318 (talkcontribs) 15:31, 11 November 2019 (UTC)

@Abhishek.anita12318: You have not edit the Ashwini Baishnab page after me. You have created Draft:Ashwini Vaishnaw with essentially the same content that was previously reverted. Specific problems with the content include (but are not limited to) statements such as:
  • Ashwini has donned various hats over his career.
    Not expressly promotional, but not really encyclopedic in tone either.
  • He has professed and showcased that sincerity, humility and a strong value system can go a long way in professional success and societal progress.
    This sentence is purely subject opinion and promotion. It has no place in Wikipedia.
  • As a recognition of his good work,...
    There is no source to verify that his move to the PM's office was in recognition of his good work. (Many people are given prestigious postings based on political connections rather than individual merit.)
  • The desire to serve the society called back...
    This is subjective promotion rather than objective prose.
  • Ashwini is putting the unique experience of civil service, corporate working, and entrepreneurship to policy making.
You may continue editing the draft to improve it, but since there is already a page about this individual, your draft will not be publishable. Rather, you may be able to copy the text from the draft into the article, if it has been sufficiently cleaned up per the above comments. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 16:51, 11 November 2019 (UTC)
@WikiDan61: Thank you for the notes, I will edit it accordingly and post it again.
