Suspension of admin privileges due to inactivity[edit]

Following a community discussion in June 2011, consensus was reached to provisionally suspend the administrative privileges of users who have been inactive for one year, meaning administrators who have made neither any edits nor any logged actions in over one year. As a result of this discussion, your administrative privileges have been removed pending your return. If you wish to have these privileges reinstated, please post to the Wikipedia:Bureaucrats' noticeboard and the userright will be restored per the re-sysopping process (i.e., as long as the attending bureaucrats are reasonably satisfied that your account has not been compromised and that your inactivity did not have the effect of evading scrutiny of any actions which might have led to sanctions). This removal of access is procedural only, and not intended to reflect negatively upon you in any way. We wish you the best in future endeavors, and thank you for your past administrative efforts.

Notice of change[edit]

Hello. You are receiving this message because of a recent change to the administrator policy that alters what you were told at the time of your desysopping. The effect of the change is that if you are inactive for a continuous three year period, you will be unable to request return of the administrative user right. This includes inactive time prior to your desysopping if you were desysopped for inactivity and inactive time prior to the change in policy. Inactivity is defined as the absence of edits or logged actions. Until such time as you have been inactive for three years, you may request return of the tools at the bureaucrats' noticeboard. After you have been inactive for three years, you may seek return of the tools only through WP:RFA. Thank you. MBisanz talk 00:20, 4 December 2012 (UTC)

I know you've left, but if you ever drop by, I'd like you to know: I stumbled upon certain archived discussions, and I've come to the conclusion that you have the patience of a saint and the stomach of a king. Wikipedia lost an awful lot when it lost you. Sophus Bie (talk) 01:40, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for January 22[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Neilburg Composite School, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Public school (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Speedies[edit]

The Philippe Robert-Jones has almost no content when you placed the speedy deletion tag, it did link to the article in two other WPs. Thought our standards can be different, it is very rare indeed that a person with an article in the frWP would not be considered notable here--and certainly it would at least have been worth checking.

David Mikics, at the time you put an A7 speedy tag on, had sufficient content to show that there was not merely an indication of significance, but that it fully met the requirements for actual notability under WP:PROF, because of the named professorship. DGG ( talk ) 05:09, 11 March 2015 (UTC)

And thus another editor reviewed and decided to remove the tags. --ZimZalaBim talk 05:20, 11 March 2015 (UTC)

Seems like they pick out information pages on smaller companies and delete them because they don't think we're worthy! They've just deleted my information page about Dinner2go (a legit, independent company that's been running for 10 years), but they seem quite happy to have pages about Just Eat, Hungry House, Delivery.com because they're big conglomerates!

Why is it that they "deserve" to be on Wikipedia and we don't deserve a page on here?

My page had NO links... NO advertising... Just a bit of information about what we do and how we do it. I Think there's a clear bias here! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sohail.rahim (talkcontribs) 15:05, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

Page Deletion[edit]

Hello there. You recently deleted my Page because it was too promotional. It merely stated facts about a company, and was in no way promotional. At least I wasn't intending it to be. Anyway you guys have a great site and I didn't intend to spam it or anything like that. If there is any way I can list this company that makes it non-promotional - I will be more than happy to comply. Take care.

Andrew (MarketAmericaSM (talk) 19:40, 12 March 2015 (UTC)MarketAmericaSM)

I'd suggest you start with the guidelines on spam and Wikipedia:FAQ/Organizations for help regarding the appropriateness of creating articles about companies, as well as the relevant notability guidelines. --ZimZalaBim talk 20:15, 12 March 2015 (UTC)

Why have you deleted my page (Dinner2go.co.uk)?[edit]

Hi.... Why did you delete my page? Other companies such as Just Eat, Hungry House, Delivery.com and various others have pages of information about themselves, but you chose to delete my page. Is it because we're a small, independent company, and you like to promote the bigger ones?

- I didn't put any links - I didn't put any adverts - I linked correctly to the city we're based in - I put information about how we work, without ANY LINKS to our website.

So where's the advertising in my page? Why are you guys so biased towards the bigger companies? Do you think they "deserve" to be on here, and we don't, because we're small and independent?

Why was my page removed? Is this some sort of dictatorship? Favouritism? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sohail.rahim (talkcontribs) 15:20, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

Notification of pending suspension of administrative permissions due to inactivity[edit]

Information icon Following a community discussion in June 2011, consensus was reached to provisionally suspend the administrative permissions of users who have been inactive for one year (i.e. administrators who have not made any edits or logged actions in more than one year). As a result of this discussion, your administrative permissions will be removed pending your return if you do not return to activity within the next month. If you wish to have these permissions reinstated should this occur, please post to the Wikipedia:Bureaucrats' noticeboard and the userright will be restored per the re-sysopping process (i.e. as long as the attending bureaucrats are reasonably satisfied that your account has not been compromised, that your inactivity did not have the effect of evading scrutiny of any actions which might have led to sanctions, and that you have not been inactive for a three-year period of time). If you remain inactive for a three-year period of time, including the present year you have been inactive, you will need to request reinstatement at WP:RFA. This removal of access is procedural only, and not intended to reflect negatively upon you in any way. We wish you the best in future endeavors, and thank you for your past administrative efforts.
