(917)692-2706 listed at Redirects for discussion[edit]

Information.svg

An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect (917)692-2706. Since you had some involvement with the (917)692-2706 redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion if you have not already done so. Catrìona (talk) 14:18, 26 December 2018 (UTC)

Categories and sub-categories[edit]

Thanks for adding categories to various articles. Many new editors don't know about this sort of detail and we wind up getting new articles that cannot be found easily. One nit: in general, please only add the most-specific subcategory, not also parent cats of that category (Wikipedia:Categorization#Categorizing pages guideline). For example, if Astoria Park is tagged with Category:Skateparks in New York City, it should not also be tagged Category:Skateparks in the United States. DMacks (talk) 06:29, 3 January 2019 (UTC)

Also, per Help:Minor edit, edits that change categories should probably not be marked as "minor". DMacks (talk) 06:44, 3 January 2019 (UTC)

Thank you DMacks, I understand better now. I will work to avoid double tagging in the future. --Wil540 art (talk) 19:15, 8 January 2019 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

I just wanted to thank you for your helpful comments at Wikipedia:Redirects for discussion/Log/2018 December 26#(917)692-2706 BTW, try typing 917-692-2706 into your search box. :) --Guy Macon (talk) 18:55, 8 January 2019 (UTC)

Famousbirthdays.com as a source[edit]

Hi Wil540 art. I noticed that you recently used famousbirthdays.com as a source for biographical information in William Strobeck and Mariah Duran. Please note that there is general consensus that famousbirthdays.com does not meet the reliable sourcing criteria for the inclusion of personal information in such articles. (See Wikipedia:Reliable_sources/Noticeboard/Archive_153#Is_famousbirthdays.com_a_reliable_source_for_personal_information). If you disagree, let's discuss it. Thanks. --Ronz (talk) 19:29, 20 March 2019 (UTC)

Thursday April 4 and Friday April 5: Translat-a-thon NYC 2019 @ LaGuardia Community College
LaGuardia CC E jeh.jpg

Translat-a-thon NYC 2019 @ LaGuardia Community College is hosting the second annual Wikipedia Translatathon! At this event on Thursday evening and during the day Friday this week, anyone from the public is invited to LaGuardia to join students, professors, and CUNY faculty in translating Wikipedia articles among any languages which attendees understand. Themes for this event include public health and the history of New York City.

New York City has a large immigrant population and great diversity of speakers of various languages. Among all schools in New York City, LaGuardia has the highest percentage of immigrant students, the highest percentage of students who speak a language other than English as their first language, and the greatest representation of language diversity. It is a strength of LaGuardia that it can present "Wikipedia translatathons", which are Wikipedia translation events.

Speedy deletion nomination of Draft:Marlon Mullen[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Draft:Marlon Mullen requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page appears to be an unambiguous copyright infringement. This page appears to be a direct copy from http://www.disparateminds.org/blog/2017/5/1/marlon-mullen-at-jtt-gallery. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images taken from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites or other printed material as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website or image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text or image — which means allowing other people to use it for any reason — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. The same holds if you are not the owner but have their permission. If you are not the owner and do not have permission, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission for how you may obtain it. You might want to look at Wikipedia's copyright policy for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Proposed deletion of Louie Lopez[edit]

Notice

The article Louie Lopez has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

no evidence for notability

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist.

I wanted to let you know that I have tagged the page as having some issues to fix, as a part of our page curation process and note that:-

Thank you for your new article on Kandis Williams. However, per WP:EXIST you must make an effort to develop an article that does more than simply mention her existence and list her various works. It appears that she has received some critical notice and pro reviews, and text from those sources could be added to the article.

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, leave a comment here and prepend it with {{Re|Doomsdayer520}}. And, don't forget to sign your reply with ~~~~ . For broader editing help, please visit the Teahouse.

Hello, Wil540 art,

Welcome to Wikipedia! I edit here too, under the username Doomsdayer520 and it's nice to meet you :-)

I wanted to let you know that I've started a discussion about whether an article that you created, Ruth Gebreyesus should be deleted. Your comments are welcome at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Ruth Gebreyesus .

You might like to note that such discussions usually run for seven days and are not ballot-polls. And, our guide about effectively contributing to such discussions is worth a read. Last but not least, you are highly encouraged to continue improving the article; just be sure not to remove the tag about the deletion nomination from the top.

If you have any questions, please leave a comment here and prepend it with {{Re|Doomsdayer520}}. And, don't forget to sign your reply with ~~~~ . Thanks!

Darius Clark Monroe moved to draftspace[edit]

An article you recently created, Darius Clark Monroe, does not have enough sources and citations as written to remain published. It needs more citations from reliable, independent sources. (?) Information that can't be referenced should be removed (verifiability is of central importance on Wikipedia). I've moved your draft to draftspace (with a prefix of "Draft:" before the article title) where you can incubate the article with minimal disruption. Right now, the only good reference (in terms of notability) is the Hollywood Reporter article, which goes in-depth about him and his life. The others are simple blurbs or press releases, which don't go to notability. When you feel the article meets Wikipedia's general notability guideline and thus is ready for mainspace, please click on the "Submit your draft for review!" button at the top of the page.

Proposed deletion of Robert Bittenbender[edit]

Hello, Wil540 art,

Welcome to Wikipedia! I edit here too, under the username Onel5969 and it's nice to meet you :-)

I wanted to let you know that I’ve proposed an article that you started, Robert Bittenbender, for deletion because it meets one of the relevant criterion.The particular issue can be located in the notice, that is now-visible at the top of the article.

If you wish to prevent the deletion:

  1. Edit the page
  2. Remove the text that looks like this: {{proposed deletion/dated...}}
  3. Click Publish Changes button.

But, please remember to explain why you think the article should be kept on the article's talk page and improve the page to address the raised issues. Otherwise, it may be deleted later by other means.

If you have any questions, please leave a comment here and prepend it with {{Re|Onel5969}}. And, don't forget to sign your reply with ~~~~ . Thanks!

A page you started (Morgan Bassichis) has been reviewed![edit]

Thanks for creating Morgan Bassichis.

User:Rosguill while reviewing this page as a part of our page curation process had the following comments:

I was able to find enough coverage online to meet notability guidelines (in particular [1] and [2] convinced me), but virtually all of the sources currently cited are not independent of the subject and thus aren't terribly useful for writing an article. We need third-party reviews or bios about the subject written in reliable sources with editorial oversight, not press releases announcing performances.

To reply, leave a comment here and prepend it with {{Re|Rosguill}}. And, don't forget to sign your reply with ~~~~ .

A page you started (NIAD Art Center) has been reviewed![edit]

Thanks for creating NIAD Art Center.

User:Rosguill while reviewing this page as a part of our page curation process had the following comments:

It's not clear if coverage is sufficiently significant and independent to establish notability: a lot of the provided citations appear to be to coverage that is routine and/or promotional. It would also help if citations to non-local sources were added, as they would be a stronger indication of the subject's notability.

The museum is excited to work with Wikipedia Asian Month for the potential to seed new articles about Asian artworks, artwork types, and art traditions, from any part of Asia. These can be illustrated with thousands of its recently-released images of public domain artworks available for Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons from the museum’s collection spanning 5,000 years of art. The event is an opportunity for Wikimedia communities to engage The Met's diverse Asian collections onsite and remotely. Asia Art Archive will host a sister event in Hong Kong next week.

Speedy deletion nomination of Phil Shao[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Phil Shao requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G4 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page appears to be a repost of material that was previously deleted following a deletion discussion, at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Erik Christensen (snowboarder). When a page has substantially identical content to that of a page deleted after a discussion, and any changes in the content do not address the reasons for which the material was previously deleted, it may be deleted at any time.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here.

Ways to improve Martin Maher (Parks Commissioner)[edit]

Hello, Wil540 art,

Thank you for creating Martin Maher (Parks Commissioner).

I have tagged the page as having some issues to fix, as a part of our page curation process and note that:

Thank you for this new article, but Mr. Maher's eligibility for a Wikipedia article does not seem too strong per WP:NPOL. Concerning the "significant press coverage" requirement in that guideline, he has a couple of interviews but all other sources merely list him as being present at an event or advising on a policy matter. And the picture used in the infobox does not indicate where he is among the group (if he is in it at all) and the photo probably runs afoul of MOS:IMAGERELEVANCE.

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, leave a comment here and prepend it with {{Re|Doomsdayer520}}. And, don't forget to sign your reply with ~~~~. For broader editing help, please visit the Teahouse.

Speedy deletion nomination of City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page appears to be an unambiguous copyright infringement. This page appears to be a direct copy from http://www.griffithobservatory.org/about/recreationandparks.html and https://locator.lacounty.gov/lac/Location/3178898/branford-park. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images taken from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites or other printed material as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website or image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text or image — which means allowing other people to use it for any reason — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. The same holds if you are not the owner but have their permission. If you are not the owner and do not have permission, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission for how you may obtain it. You might want to look at Wikipedia's copyright policy for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Deletion discussion about Dave Swift (photographer)[edit]

Hello, Wil540 art, and welcome to Wikipedia. I edit here too, under the username North8000, and I thank you for your contributions.

I wanted to let you know, however, that I've started a discussion about whether an article that you created, Dave Swift (photographer), should be deleted, as I am not sure that it is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia in its current form. Your comments are welcome at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Dave Swift (photographer).

You might like to note that such discussions usually run for seven days and are not ballot-polls. And, our guide about effectively contributing to such discussions is worth a read. Last but not least, you are highly encouraged to continue improving the article; just be sure not to remove the tag about the deletion nomination from the top.

If you have any questions, please leave a comment here and prepend it with {{Re|North8000}}. And, don't forget to sign your reply with ~~~~ . Thanks!

(Message delivered via the Page Curation tool, on behalf of the reviewer.)

Proposed deletion of Wounded Knee 4-Directions Toby Eagle Bull Memorial Skatepark[edit]

Notice

The article Wounded Knee 4-Directions Toby Eagle Bull Memorial Skatepark has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Not enough coverage to meet WP:GNG.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Speedy deletion nomination of Matthew Cleveland[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Matthew Cleveland requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a real person or group of people that does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator. DGG ( talk ) 06:07, 6 December 2020 (UTC)

Wikipedia Day is always a big day for Wikimedia NYC. While we cannot meet in person, we still have something special planned. We will begin the event with the debut of a new video celebrating our community. This will be followed by a panel discussion with some of the people you'll see in the video talking about Wikipedia's 20th anniversary, Wikimedia New York City, and the amazing work they do on Wikimedia projects.

The event will be broadcast live via YouTube. Feel free to ask questions for the panel through the chat!

We will also have some NYC wiki trivia you can participate in, with confectionery prizes.

AFC-Logo.svg
Nicéphore Niépce Museum, which you submitted to Articles for creation, has been created.

Congratulations, and thank you for helping expand the scope of Wikipedia! We hope you will continue making quality contributions.

The article has been assessed as Start-Class, which is recorded on its talk page. Most new articles start out as Stub-Class or Start-Class and then attain higher grades as they develop over time. You may like to take a look at the grading scheme to see how you can improve the article.

Since you have made at least 10 edits over more than four days, you can now create articles yourself without posting a request. However, you may continue submitting work to Articles for creation if you prefer.

If you have any questions, you are welcome to ask at the help desk. Once you have made at least 10 edits and had an account for at least four days, you will have the option to create articles yourself without posting a request to Articles for creation.

If you would like to help us improve this process, please consider leaving us some feedback.

Thanks again, and happy editing!

A cup of coffee for you![edit]

Cup-o-coffee-simple.svg If and when you do more translations let's try to carry the references over. They do not need translating. The process would be to just carry over the footnotes or numbering. If we can match sentences to citations then the rest will be easy. Cool project getting more cool every time, I love it Blue Rasberry (talk) 18:42, 9 February 2021 (UTC)
See here - same request from the Portuguese language community.
Could you briefly respond to the person tell them you will try to carry over citations in the future? I expect this will not be a big deal, just a matter of retaining the numbers matched to sentences. Blue Rasberry (talk) 13:24, 18 February 2021 (UTC)
Thanks Lane. I responded and added citations to the article. That is awesome they reviewed the article and moved it over. I have some more ideas to expand the impact of this project, going to send you an email. --Wil540 art (talk) 15:31, 18 February 2021 (UTC)
