Hi! Thanks for being a mentor! I’m here to learn but also to help the wonderful world of wiki keep providing sourced info! --Bearkitty123 (talk) 16:33, 16 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Question from Eron Lushaj (01:22, 27 August 2023) Edit

Hi, How can I publish an article but there are no external links that can support it because it is something new and almost nobody knows about it, thanks. --Eron Lushaj (talk) 01:22, 27 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi Eron Lushaj. I assume you are talking about Draft:Militrex Kosova Defense? Unfortunately, if something is not covered in reliable sources, Wikipedia cannot have an article on it. However, if it is notable, I can almost guarantee there will be sources released in the next months. There is no deadline on Wikipedia. ~~ AirshipJungleman29 (talk) 01:35, 27 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

hi --Snapclick Pvt. Ltd. (talk) 13:02, 14 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

How can i add a new page on wikipedia with the company name? --Snapclick Pvt. Ltd. (talk) 10:22, 15 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Snapclick Pvt. Ltd., I would highly advise not doing that. See WP:PROMO and WP:COI for details. ~~ AirshipJungleman29 (talk) 10:24, 15 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
We are not doing Advertising about any thing, we just want to create our company's page on wikipedia. this is the only reason. Is there any possibilities to create our company page over here ? Snapclick Pvt. Ltd. (talk) 10:29, 15 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. RfC Edit

You recently closed a RfC on the Robert F. Kennedy Jr. article. You claim that there "is consensus in favour of solution 2 (removing the term "propaganda"), on grounds that it pejoratively implies deliberate deception", though the majority of editors voted to keep the term, and a number of people stated that they were fine with both terms. Even if that were not the case, RfC's aren't decided by majority vote. Can you please elaborate how you came to the conclusion that there is consensus in favour of not using the term "propaganda"? Cortador (talk) 06:19, 24 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Cortador I closed that RfC a month ago, so my memory might be slightly wonky on the intracies. I do not believe "a majority of editors voted to keep the term"—the RfC was on a lengthy phrase in the first paragraph, not just the word "propaganda"—but in any case, as you somewhat contradictorily note, discussions are closed by consensus, not majority vote. There was a significant proportion of those who !voted in favour of keeping the phrase who were not satisfied about the term "propaganda", on account of the implication of pejoration. Because the discussion was on a WP:BLP, which naturally "requires a high degree of sensitivity", I considered these arguments to be more stronger and relevant than they would be on an article about tadpoles, for instance. I think that was generally my reasoning and it seems to have stuck well (I note a subsequent talk page discussion under the heading "Propaganda"?). Hope that helps. ~~ AirshipJungleman29 (talk) 10:42, 24 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The original question of the RfC was "Do we keep these terms or remove in this WP:BLP?" A majority of editors voted to keep them, and delivered arguments why to do so - the term "propaganda" is used by three out of four sources for that sentence. I'm afraid I don't get your reasoning based on this; BLP isn't a reason to exclude information from reliable sources. Cortador (talk) 12:17, 24 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Very true. Consensus is, though. ~~ AirshipJungleman29 (talk) 19:59, 24 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
No, it is not. That is specifically what I'm disputing here. Cortador (talk) 06:34, 29 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It appears we have come to a fundamental impasse; you are of course free to start a closure review at WP:AN if you think my reading of policies is incorrect. ~~ AirshipJungleman29 (talk) 09:52, 29 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Battle of Lewinsville: Thanks Edit

Thanks for promoting the DYK for this article. It has just finished its run so I think it is too soon to see the page views but I think they should be up later today. Donner60 (talk) 05:33, 16 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

William Nixon (obstetrician) Edit

Thanks for promoting this one but I think you need to re-open it as the selected hook needs improvement. (I will add an Alt). Philafrenzy (talk) 18:48, 16 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I don't believe it does, Philafrenzy. Care to explain your reasoning? ~~ AirshipJungleman29 (talk) 15:20, 18 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It's a bald statement of fact with no context and which implies that there was something exceptional or possibly illegal about the abortions he carried out, otherwise why would we be saying it was before a particular piece of law? Since that hook was formulated the article has been expanded to make clear that he was acting completely legally and there was already case law to support his actions. That being so, what is the point of the hook? I think we could develop a hook around the reasons for which he did the abortions which was to protect the health of the mother.

Flag of Mato Grosso do Sul Edit

Hi @AirshipJungleman29, thank you for moving my DYK into one of the prep queues. I wanted to include the image in the DYK though, but I guess that wasn't apparent because I hadn't included (pictured) in the hook. Could my hook be moved to another queue so that it can be accompanied by the flag shown in the nomination? BaduFerreira (talk) 14:47, 18 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

BaduFerreira, it was apparent, but as the promoter I decided against it. DYK receives around twice as many picture hooks as there are available slots (as the first slot receives the most attention), so around half of picture hooks can't run with an image. A promoter thus has to judge which images are more captivating than others. While your hook was interesting, I didn't feel that the image added that much to it, especially considering that as a "mockup" it is only an approximate representation of the original design. With all that in mind, I judged that it would be better suited to a non-picture hook slot. Hope you understand. Best wishes, ~~ AirshipJungleman29 (talk) 15:11, 18 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Oh okay, that makes sense. I'll keep that in mind for future DYK submissions! Thank you for your response. BaduFerreira (talk) 22:04, 18 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
