Help with histmerge for Aubrey McClendon?[edit]

Hi Wizardman, it's been a while since I've reached out, but you were very helpful last year in reviewing and moving live a new draft I was proposing for Tucker Eskew's article. I'm hoping you might be able to help with a current project of mine, seeking to update and improve the article for Aubrey McClendon. Similar to Eskew, I'm working as a paid consultant to Mr. McClendon and will not make any edits to the live article myself, instead offering a new draft for review. Two editors (User:Wilipino and User:Bruin2) have already reviewed the draft, finding it to be an improvement on the current article version. After some discussion with Bruin2 and edits by both of us to my proposed draft—unfortunately Wilipino has not been online since his initial favorable response—I believe the draft is ready to go. Bruin2 wasn't sure how best to take the draft live, and I think what he had in mind is a histmerge. Knowing you've helped move my drafts into live article space before, including a histmerge on my behalf for Gary Loveman, I thought to ask you.

If you're able to help, my draft is here and the original request on the Talk page is here. Let me know if you have any feedback or if you're able to move the draft live in place of the existing version. Thanks in advance! 16912 Rhiannon (Talk · COI) 16:42, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

I'll take a look sometime next week. Wizardman 13:37, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

Potential new issues with an established CCI; requesting feedback[edit]

Hello, Wizardman. I know you're very busy, so sorry for bugging you, but if you could give feedback on whether you believe the CCI for User:Epeefleche should be expanded to include recent edits in light of concerns expressed at User_talk:Epeefleche#Ongoing_close_paraphrasing_concerns, it would be appreciated. I do not know if these issues are widespread; I've seen plenty of valid paraphrase in his work, but did verify that the concerns have some merit, unfortunately. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 21:05, 4 July 2015 (UTC)

Moultrie, GA µSA[edit]

I stumbled upon the RfD discussion at Wikipedia:Redirects for discussion/Log/2010 September 27#Abbeville, LA μSA while creating an article, and noticed that you deleted Moultrie, GA µSA without a deletion rationale after the discussion closed as "Keep". Could you explain why this page was deleted? If the rationale was "implausible redirect", I'd like to request that you restore the page, given that there was consensus at the linked RfD discussion to keep the page despite those concerns. Thanks for taking a look, and sorry for bringing up an admin action from 2013. It just struck me as odd. ~ RobTalk 02:22, 25 July 2015 (UTC)
