ArbCom elections are now open!Edit

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

StubsEdit

Articles can be given a quality rating, and the lowest rank is stub. Wikipedia:WikiProject New Zealand/Assessment is of relevance to WikiProject New Zealand. When the class of an article is 'stub' as recorded on its talk page, a tag can be added to the article page that puts it into one or more types of stub category. I've just reassessed Colombo Street from start class (i.e. the second lowest rating) to C class (the third lowest rating). If you ever get into rating articles, it's important to remove stub tags from the article when it gets rated as something better than stub class. Please ping me if you have questions.

New Zealand State Highway 23Edit

Specifically which of the EL rules do you think my revision contravened?Johnragla (talk) 18:04, 4 July 2016 (UTC)

  • External links are best used as a third party source specifically relating to the article in question. As a matter of good faith I chose to undo the edit. The first reference regarding AADT was fine, but could be better used as referring to content. I have just added content to the article using the reference but instead referencing the AADT sheet 2011-2015 on the NZTA website rather than the historical list to make it less ambigious. The second link is just a url to a traffic delays page so WP:NOTGUIDE and the third was a reference to Facebook which is not a reliable source (but if the same content can be sourced elsewhere that may be acceptable). Ajf773 (talk) 05:41, 5 July 2016 (UTC)
  • Still no answer on which EL rule I've broken. Neither can I find anything in What_Wikipedia_is_not#External_links, except it says EL shouldn't be of excessive length. Are 3 links excessive? The Facebook page gives the source - http://ndhadeliver.natlib.govt.nz/content-aggregator/getIEs?system=ilsdb&id=1081104. Are you saying that and the map are unreliable? If so, why?Johnragla (talk) 08:00, 5 July 2016 (UTC)
    • Refer to WP:EL for external links. The quantity of external links should be limited a few that have significant connection to the article - I added the New Zealand Transport Agency as an example as this is the governing body that administers the highway. EL guidelines don't apply to links within citations. The content may be factual but the source itself is not reliable and social media sites and blogs are, more often than not, considered original research WP:NOR.
  • I still don't understand why you say that the "content may be factual", when it's a map on the National Library website. Are you suggesting the National Library makes up maps which aren't factual? If so, what's your evidence?Johnragla (talk) 08:28, 5 July 2016 (UTC)
    • The original link you had supplied referred to facebook/social media. The second link refers to the National Library website. The difference here is where the content was sourced - the latter is reliable, the former is not. Ajf773 (talk) 08:33, 5 July 2016 (UTC)
  • But the latter refers to the former, so at what point and how does it lose reliability? It's just that the Facebook link is easier for most people to follow, since the National Library website is structured in a way that requires 4 steps to reach the result shown on the Facebook link. I could include the Library reference and a long explanation of how to get to the relevant part. Is that what you're suggesting?Johnragla (talk) 08:42, 5 July 2016 (UTC)
    • It doesn't appear that way to me. Looks fine to use the source you just posted. When you cite links correctly it will display a title rather than the url WP:CITEHOW Ajf773 (talk) 08:54, 5 July 2016 (UTC)
  • hope i've followed your instructions. still seems to me to be better as it was, but at least the link's there.

'Bicycle ban' sectionEdit

I have undone your revisions regarding Public transport in Hamilton and Waikato specifically the 'Bicycle ban' section which claims Hamilton has been the largest city not to carry bicycles on any of its public transport. No reference specifically verifying this statement has yet been cited. Multiple references relating to transport in other cities (Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch) are references to their own respective transport systems (but not those in Hamilton and Waikato). A reference to city populations from the New Zealand census does not state anything about bicycles on public transport. It is not immediately distinguishable to the reader and remains trivial and ambiguous.

If you can find a single source which clearly states that Hamilton has been the largest city not to carry bicycles on any of its public transport, then I'll be happy to allow it to remain. Ajf773 (talk) 09:34, 8 July 2016 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/London Buses route 53Edit

Hi, you previously contributed to a deletion discussion for London bus route 99, another similar deletion discussion is ongoing at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/London Buses route 53 which you may wish to give your input on.

Note: I've placed (or am in the process of placing) this notification on the talk page of anyone who took part in the original deletion discussion, as the most recent similar discussion, regardless of deletion preference, which is allowable under WP:CANVASS. The only exception being if that person has already contributed, or has indicated on their profile that they are inactive.

Thanks for your time. Jeni (talk) 10:31, 26 July 2016 (UTC)

Event CinemasEdit

Yo, thought I could explain better here. The last edits were very detailed on the features and venues, but were highly promotional. Since they're gone, I thought having that link there would interest people who were into that sort of stuff... like architecture and technology... like me... I do enjoy that page... I often don't even think to look at a page on Wikipedia unless it's hyperlinked... even if you think it's useless... :) E ribbon toner (talk) 10:27, 31 August 2016 (UTC)

  • The article is self explanatory and the 'see also' heading to the generic article is unnecessary. A better way to format it would be as follows:
Event Cinemas have over fifty movie theatre venues around Australia, many located in large shopping centres. The cinema complexes comprise multiple screens.
Read WP:ALSO for the manual of style relating to the content.
I totally get it now, you're completely right! Thanks for this. :) E ribbon toner (talk) 11:16, 31 August 2016 (UTC)

Suburbs and retailersEdit

Hi, Ajf773! I notice your campaign against mention of retailers in Underwood, Queensland. However, if you look around, you will see it is common practice to mention retailers (and particularly notable restailers) in suburb articles (there's often not a lot else to say in them!). You keep saying that Wikipedia is not a retail directory; however, I am not aware of this as one of Wikipedia's policies. While WP:NOTDIR prohibits providing great detail, it does not prohibit mention. Listing their addresses, phone numbers and opening hours etc would be going too far, but I don't think saying something like:

Nowheresville has a Coles, a Kentucky Fried Chicken and a hot bread kitchen.

is a problem. If anything, it gives a pretty clear indication of the kind of place it is by the retailers active there.

The other thing to note is that this kind of content is often provided by new contributors in which case WP:NOBITE applies. We should always think twice before removing good faith content provided by new contributors.

I really don't see the harm in short lists of this kind of content, particularly in articles where there isn't a whole lot else to say about the place. Kerry (talk) 20:46, 1 November 2016 (UTC)

Hi Kerry. I don't have any issue with mentioning retailers if there is a special claim to fame (and can be verified with third party sources) or a very limited inclusion criteria (such as anchors in a shopping centre) but mentioning a retailer in geographic area , just because it exists, isn't enough reason for inclusion in my opinion. Because of the changing nature of commercial activity in areas, content goes out of date fast, and such become a harvest for new and inexperienced users to keep adding content leading eventually to spam. Yes WP:NOTDIR covers this (and the policy is not exclusive to phone numbers and addresses) also potentially they can infringe WP:NOTADVERT, WP:NOTGUIDE, WP:NOTRAVEL. More notably the other more important matter is that there are often completely unsourced, as was also the case in this particular article.
I don't believe lists like this are commonplace in articles and I am observing more of an effort to clean these up rather than retain them. Ajf773 (talk) 04:11, 7 November 2016 (UTC)

Rosehill College: Not an Enrolment GuideEdit

I am not really seeing why you removed material that had been present for several years. What makes the removed material "enrolment guidey"?

You have left it very difficult to understand what being split into houses means. Information on subjects offered is, for instance, present in AGS's article. Information on school blocks, whilst interesting, is perhaps extraneous whereas the rest is sort of critical to understanding the nature of the school.

Clearly, however, you are more familiar with Wikipedia editing than myself, which is why your changes, as yet, have not been undone. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Vonvorx (talkcontribs) 08:21, 25 January 2017 (UTC)

Let me put it to you simply by saying Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, not a guide. We don't indiscriminant pages of content to school articles that has no encyclopedic value and serves more of a guide for enrolling students into the school. See WP:NOTGUIDE and WP:SCHOOLCRUFT. Ajf773 (talk) 07:51, 26 January 2017 (UTC)

You may find it helpful in future to avoid mistaking repeating assertions for answering questions. This is particularly discourteous when the questions include actual reasons.

In terms of schoolcruft, a crufty name btw, there is little sign of that either. There was the stuff about blocks but if you'll notice, I agreed this was extraneous. And the wifi. That can stay gone, I guess? But why does noting that the school offers standard subjects amount to cruftiness? If an article doesn't discuss, briefly, whether a school uses NCEA/IB/CIE I think we've absolutely failed to provide a description of the school. Similarly, it may make sense to you or I what a house is but this is not always going to be true (consider the NCEA talk page question about credits). Due to your unexplained decisions about what is enrolment guide-like (after years of edits, including by experienced Wikipedians) both of these important facets are now not present. So, I repeat why should this be the case? (Which means, specifically, what is it about these facets that makes them crufty?)

In truth, thanks to you, we should be renaming this article "Staff of Rosehill College" because there is more about the principals now than such basic things as whether or not the school has a uniform or not! In short, [citation needed] better described the majority of the problems (i.e. excluding blocks, wifi) rather than blanket removal. Unless, of course, there is some compellingly enrolment guidey character I did not see first time around and have not been assisted in seeing despite enquiring. (Unless, of course, we should go through presumably ever school article in NZ and remove information about their zones, which is obviously actually guidelike.)

my sincere apologyEdit

when i saw it was being moved to 'list of restaurant of australia', instead of reverting - I changed to 'list of resturants of australia', to fit my knowledge of english usage, so it is an unresolved mess - as the lead sentence refers to the original title which is more appropriate

JarrahTree 13:57, 1 February 2017 (UTC)

No problem. I had noticed the article had been renamed for some unknown reason so thanks for fixing it. Ajf773 (talk) 17:00, 1 February 2017 (UTC)

David Shearer - 51st New Zealand ParliamentEdit

Hi, I see you reverted my edit on the 51st New Zealand Parliament page with the comment that the change should wait until after the Mount Albert by-election. I stand by my original statement, however - Labour currently has only 31 seats as Mount Albert is vacant and held by no party. If a vote were to be called, Labour would only have 31 votes - not the 32 proportionality would entitle it to. If Labour wins the election, this (obviously) would revert to 32 seats. If this makes sense to you, I think my edit should be re-instated. What do you think? Cheers —tdltrombonator 11:26, 7 February 2017 (UTC)

Doing something one way one time doesn't mean it's best practice. As per the Parliament website, Labour only has 31 seats. For accuracy, I think we should update the article to reflect this, and amend it after the by-election is over for whichever party/candidate wins. —tdltrombonator 12:13, 7 February 2017 (UTC)
Ok then. Perhaps add a note pending the result of the by-election. Ajf773 (talk) 12:15, 7 February 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for reconsidering. I think that adding a note as you suggest pre-guesses the result of the by-election, so I won't be that explicit. —tdltrombonator 12:25, 7 February 2017 (UTC)

Hi, as fas as I can see the external links in the above article are neither excessive nor inappropriate, and they are in footnotes. What would you change? Cheers, Drahtlos (talk) 13:15, 13 March 2017 (UTC)

  • Hi @Drahtlos. I suggest we deal to the external links by removing them all.

ClendonEdit

Hi,

Regarding the difference between Clendon and Clendon Park, on the Auckland Council site, Google maps, and a map of Manukau & Howick Wards Post Codes, the area is referred to as Clendon Park. I am not finding official use of Clendon as the suburb. So, I reverted the version of Clendon to the redirect to Clendon Park. If I am missing something and you have sources that state that the official name is Clendon, though, please let me know.

By the way, I have added citations to the Clendon Park article.–CaroleHenson (talk) 09:58, 12 April 2017 (UTC)

  • @CaroleHenson Appreciate this. The redirects for the Clendon article were from an IP user who has a high history of disruptive editing (across multiple IPs). Very seldom do they get it right. I am satisfied with your response and affirmation that the redirect is suitable. Ajf773 (talk) 20:25, 12 April 2017 (UTC)

Blue's Clues videosEdit

Youstruck out a comnent because the editor was trying to post two. Do you not think [[1]] is the same person as [[2]]? I have no evidence. Just that they both are for keeping it and the former has only on edit, suggesting an IP hopping. Although, I don't want to accuse wihout certainty. 2600:1:F18E:779D:2961:E106:9A9D:7391 (talk) 14:46, 10 May 2017 (UTC)

It has all the hallmarks of IP hopping which I have noted down to assist in the outcome of the AfD. Ajf773 (talk) 18:29, 10 May 2017 (UTC)
Thanks. And concerning the article, the orginal creator [[3]] has been blocked indefinatly.

And the article really is questionable. Don't get me wrong. Blue's Clues was also a part of my childhood and I can understand why old fans should want such honors. However, Wikipedia is not for honoring third parties. I do feel Daniel was in the right and that few people second him so that he is forced to put up with the editors whose only obivious purpose for retaining the article is too honor the show, as is quite obivious from one ip's mention of the list of Dora videos (apparently a sign of understandable jealousy). So, in my opinion, Daniel's suggestions are in the right and should be followed redirecting or deleting the page.

Mike Baird Paragraph in Prohibition ArticleEdit

The concept of neoprohibitionism is that the government will implement seemingly non-prohibition alcohol regulations which have the side effect of reducing the demand for alcohol. In Mike Baird's case, the lockout laws placed severe regulations on the operations of bars in the city. The bars could not survive with such regulations, which was the real intent of the regulations. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 174.200.3.66 (talk) 20:03, 18 May 2017 (UTC)

Cycling in Sydney, continual removal of relevant page linksEdit

  Please refrain from making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia, as you did at Cycling_in_Sydney. Your edits appear to be disruptive and have been reverted.

Please ensure you are familiar with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines, and please do not continue to make edits that appear disruptive. Continual disruptive editing may result in loss of editing privileges. Thank you. Note, I have not removed your edits for now, but plan to do so soon. I created this page and have been maintaining it for 9 years. Being an active cyclist in Sydney, I feel I have a good understanding of what makes for appropriate citations in this topic and should be allowed to publish them . — Preceding unsigned comment added by Teraplane (talkcontribs) 02:59, 8 July 2017 (UTC)

  • This ridiculous warning was posted by an editor with less than 500 edits to their name, angry at me for reverting edits under the WP:NOT policy just because as they were the creator of Cycling in Sydney they believed they were entitled to add whatever they liked! Ajf773 (talk) 11:16, 9 July 2017 (UTC)
  • It's worth reading through Talk:Cycling_in_Sydney to get a more complete version of what happened here. I accepted that many of the links were of a promotional nature. I noted this and was happy to for their removal. But there were other important links, form community based web sites (not for profits) where much of the info on this page was discussed further. While Ajf773 defined all these as WP:NOT, I pointed out they could also be classed as WP:ELMAYBE or several other acceptable categories. My main concern was that useful content were being removed without any discussion in the Talk page. From the above discussions, this has happened on several other pages. I suggest it's best to notify authors and maintainers who can then provide a wider context to the reason for specific links and other info. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Teraplane (talkcontribs) 01:56, 3 August 2017 (UTC)

List of Companies based in Texas|Austin company removalEdit

Austin Recently you removed a listing for software company Meta SaaS located in Austin, TX for non-notability. I discovered this company via an in depth article on Venture Beat https://venturebeat.com/2017/05/24/mark-cuban-leads-1-5-million-round-in-saas-management-tool-meta-saas/ and further found in depth articles on the Business Journal's web site. These articles do not appear to be self promotional or press releases. The standard for company or organizational notability seems to be met by the definitions laid out on Wikipedia:Notability_(organizations_and_companies). I certainly do not want to get into a wikiargument but it appears that the company meets the criteria for notability and should be returned to the listing. Before I do that though I welcome your feedback as there are numerous other companies in the Austin area I intend to add. Chatterboxer (talk) 01:08, 4 October 2017 (UTC)

Newcastle Transport PageEdit

Hello, I would like to know why you are undoing my bus fleet table that I have added to the Newcastle Transport page. I see you have never had any previous history on this page before and I would like to know what your reasoning is for undoing it. Is there an issue with it? If the issue is with pictures I'm working on it but I have worked on the Newcastle Transport page previously before without any troubles and if you think I'm a untrusted person then you have me wrong. I'm happy to provide information that I'm contributing the page and not adding fake or useless information. Finally I don't see any problem with adding a fleet table as I've seen plenty of other Bus company pages that have their fleet listed in a table. Please respond with a good reason as to why you are removing something I've spent the day working hard on as I don't find it fair my changes my changes are being reverted. Thanks Volgren User (talk) 10:25, 30th December 2017 (AEDT)

  • @Volgren: I removed your edits because they appear to be original research. You provided a link to what appears to be a bus enthusiasts fansite, self published sources are not reliable sources. Furthermore, just because other articles include them doesn't automatically apply to others. Many of these other tables end up being removed as well. See WP:FANCRUFT and WP:OTHERSTUFFEXISTS.

An automated process has detected that when you recently edited List of schools in Kollam district, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Paravur (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Hwllo Ajf773! I'm Trevor, a product manager at the Wikimedia Foundation. I'm investigating a bug report for a new feature we worked on, and I think you could help. Today you made this revert which triggered an edit summary notification. We want reverts to not trigger these notifications and are trying to track down what triggered this.

What tool did you use to perform this rollback? Twinkle, the tool on the history page? something else? Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated! Thank you. — Trevor Bolliger, WMF Product Manager (t) 22:27, 23 March 2018 (UTC)

Hi Afj773. I suspect Special:Diff/832474453 also pinged the user in the edit summary. Would you mind telling us what software you're using? We can see that it is updated to not ping anymore. Thanks! MusikAnimal talk 15:30, 26 March 2018 (UTC)
@TBolliger (WMF): @MusikAnimal:. Not using any software. Any rollbacks I do are restoring old revisions. Ajf773 (talk) 17:42, 26 March 2018 (UTC)
So are you manually typing in the edit summaries, "Reverted N edits to previous/last good version by..."? I see Special:Diff/832474453 is not tagged as Undo or Rollback, and you do not have the rollback right. If you are typing the summaries in manually, this is completely fine, but just note that [[User:Foo]] will ping User:Foo. You can avoid this by simply prefixing a colon, like [[:User:Foo]].

Hello Ajf773Edit

Thank you giving me a massage in my talk page. According to you I want to own the article List of programmes broadcast by Discovery Kids (India) as mine. But please listen, I do not want to do such. In the previous history of the page, you deleted the section of movies giving a summary that the page does not need the movies that has ever appeared. But they have appeared there with many repeats. And what would an encyclopedia help if most of information is not provided. Such as, if anyone want to find a movie on that channel he wil not find about it. So I reverted your edit. You can lend me if I have any misunderstanding or mistake. But please talk over the issue. User:AnkurHow (talk) 1:43 PM, 10 April 2018(UTC)

  • The list of movies was removed because movies are not regular nor original programming on television networks. As you are the creator you should be aware anyone can edit the article and you should give constructive reasons for your edits, as I have done but you haven't.

Deprodding of The Moment (New Zealand TV series)Edit

I have removed the {{proposed deletion/dated}} tag from The Moment (New Zealand TV series), which you proposed for deletion. While you nominatated the series for deletion under the 'Notability' criteria, the programme indeed meets these, as the programme was broadcast on a national broadcast network, owned by the national broadcaster TVNZ. The channel itself is one of the highest rating channels in the country, and the series was seen by a high percentage of the population. Local programming for New Zealand is important and is worthy of documentation.. If you still think this article should be deleted, please do not add {{proposed deletion}} back to the file. Instead, feel free to list it at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion. Thanks! Tvtalknew (talk) 11:08, 23 April 2018 (UTC)

PanukuEdit

Hi. I created the above article today and already an editor has changed it to Panuku Development Auckland. What are your thoughts on restoring it to Panuku, as per WP:COMMONNAME? Akld guy (talk) 08:40, 2 December 2018 (UTC)

  • I would assume that Panuku Regional Development is the formal name (according to Auckland Council sources) although I don't see Panuku being used in anywhere else so it could be acceptable for the article, at the very least a redirect. Ajf773 (talk) 08:47, 2 December 2018 (UTC)
I've decided to leave it as it is. The article is linked to by about 9 other articles, all of which already used the full name Panuku Development Auckland, and some changed from red links to blue automatically. It was a trivial matter to link the others rather than piping Panuku with the "|" character, so perhaps it simply is best as it is. I haven't looked but there should already be a redirect from Panuku because of the Move. Thanks for taking the time to reply. Akld guy (talk) 20:22, 2 December 2018 (UTC)

Church list AFDEdit

I did some looking around and found Category:Lists of churches in England, which has a number of articles with the same basis as the Lisburn list but with fleshed out tables and such about the churches. I'm of the opinion that these are still just directories with neither most of the contents nor the indiscriminate lists themselves being notable. Most of them were also created by the same user, so I don't believe there is a consensus for these sorts of lists to be there. Reywas92Talk 21:00, 2 January 2019 (UTC)

Freebird charter serviceEdit

please explain the reason you are continuosly and arbitrarly removing frrebird charter service from Malpensa Airport page

  • It's a charter service, not generally accepted in the scope of WP:AIRPORT-CONTENT
  • It's a future route using a holiday booking website as a reference - spam. Ajf773 (talk) 21:08, 25 February 2019 (UTC)

@Ajf773 :

  • charters are widely included in airport pages, heavily listed in Malpensa page (and punctually updated), why this have to be different?
  • Sources clearly states when and how this service will take place. I also gave multiple sources. The fact that they are "holiday booking websites" do not undervalue their effect and, for sure, are NOT spam.

Your arguments are INCONSISTENT. Evaluate to restore the edit (you can, of course, add additional and/or more meaningfull sources)

  • To be consistent the rest of the charter flights should be removed. They are not routine services and should not be included. The Wikiproject group made this consensus.
  • Holiday booking sites are spamlinks. Wikipedia is not a travel guide. Ajf773 (talk) 22:27, 25 February 2019 (UTC)

@Ajf773 : The rest of the charter flights listed in Milan Malpensa airport are ALL PROPERLY, TIMELY and VERIFIEDLY referenced. It is NOT forbidden to list charters services as per WP:AIRPORT-CONTENT unless they are private, ad-hoc (one per time) or irregular (and none of the prevoius is the case of freebird to Bodrum).

  • I'm looking at some of those sources and they are questionable. Some of the links don't even work. Also do bear in mind that Wikipedia is not a directory and there is no obligation to even have these destination lists. It's a general consensus that routes which operate so sporadically should not be included. Same goes with future routes (ones that are not operational at the present time).

  • "For future destinations, add: "(begins date service begins)" after the destination.

I'm not sure why you have classified RASHAYS addition to the List of Restaurants as spam and looking in my inbox, its flagged as inappropriate where you have hooters listed, even with a link to the website that has half naked women. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lenslinks888 (talkcontribs) 04:17, 9 April 2019 (UTC)

pls commentEdit

Hi, i just mentioned you and said I was pinging you for reply, within Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of night buses in London (3rd nomination). But i failed to include the ping. Please do see there. I do hope you don't mind my disagreeing with you in the AFD. I do believe we would have some common ground if we talked it out more, including that I also don't terribly like a list-article to be merely a slightly outdated copy of current info available somewhere else. About the AFD, though, I think the topic of "night buses in London" is big, culturally/historically/etc., and the AFD target is a combo. It needs editing but should be kept, IMHO. --Doncram (talk) 01:50, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

Wrong deleteEdit

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Craigieburn,_Victoria&diff=880492603&oldid=880407512 "Not a guide" Excuse me? Showing local bus routes is a guide. Many other pages about towns also show information about their local bus routes. You should think again when deleting. Penguin2233 (talk) 08:22, 25 April 2019 (UTC)

May 2019Edit

Evidently you feel you are superior to others based on your edit numbers. Problem is that even after 13,000 edits, you either were unaware of (or chose to ignore) BRD policy by trying to place the onus was on those who wanted to maintain the status quo to make the case, when really it was on you. And you may have gotten away with it until I noticed, sorry to disappoint.

I may have only made 74 edits, but the difference between you and me is that I only appear to edit articles that I have a reasonably good understanding of. You appear to have arrived, made some positive contributions adding text and and articles (albeit always uncited), but then run out of puff. Rather than saying my work is done and found something else to fill in the days, you have hung around, seemingly scouring the four corners of the earth for articles that you can delete text from, quite sad really.

That so many of your attempts to have articles deleted fail despite you fighting tooth and nail trying to try and discredit anybody else's point if they disagree with you like these, indicates you are not as knowledgeable as you would have us believe. You may yet prevail in this discussion, but unlikely to be on the basis of your attempts to discredit others. Ponyo98 (talk) 05:09, 4 May 2019 (UTC)

  • For someone who claims they have done their homework, I'd like to inform you that my beginnings on Wikipedia are someone like you in your position now, who focused primarily on topics I had good understanding of, until I realised that you can't just add anything you like to Wikipedia due to the policies and guidelines. I too have had dozens of edits reverted by other users in my own attempts to improve an article, even with sources. I still have a very active presence in maintaining articles, you can find those easily among the 13,000+ edits I've made. I just tend to come across a lot of articles with problems in them (as well as full articles which are themselves problematic), and I come across a lot more editors who turn a blind eye to those problems.

Air NZ fleetEdit

Hi AJF773,

I noticed previously you deleted a edit about the future order of 787s. Stating that it is Not Crystal ball gazing scenario but many Current fleet pages on wiki do have a order section in them so thought it was strange that you came to this idea that they were not suppose to be listed.CHCBOY (talk) 09:43, 28 May 2019 (UTC)

  • At the time of revert, the editor used a source that did not confirm the numbers of aircraft to join the fleet. That has now been resolved. Ajf773 (talk) 17:59, 28 May 2019 (UTC)

Oh I see thanks for clarifying. CHCBOY (talk) 22:58, 28 May 2019 (UTC)

Singapore Changi AirportEdit

If Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 3 and Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 4 have Wikipedia articles, why Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 1 and Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 2 don’t have it? BamZ412 (talk) 11:55, 21 June 2019 (UTC)

Singapore Changi AirportEdit

Sorry for being like this. I’ve only realised this when 1.02 editor redirected Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 3 and Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 4. I thanked him for doing this. Please forgive me. BamZ412 (talk) 13:10, 21 June 2019 (UTC)

BamZ412, my storyEdit

I only joined on 7 June 2019. Before that, I was an anonymous user with different IP addresses and earlier today I accidentally logged out and edited as an anonymous user until my mom which she asked my dad on FaceTime before helping me to log in again. I joined Wikimedia Commons 13 days ago in Singapore time. BamZ412 (talk) 13:20, 21 June 2019 (UTC)

"Tourism brochure"Edit

Hello Ajf773, I've fixed what you called a use of "Tourism Brochure language" in my edits on the Wikipedia entry for Wellington, although, personally, I couldn't see any difference. Look at the wikipedia page for San Fransisco, and you can see this employs much of the same language. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Leavepuckgackle1998 (talkcontribs) 10:21, 9 July 2019 (UTC)

Reverts on Mount KaukauEdit

My friend, I’m sorry to say, but you are sadly mistaken on how to pronounce this word. It is a Maori language word, and there is absolutely no excuse not to pronounce it correctly. It is also a blatantly racist statement to say there is a “Pākehā” or 'English" way of saying it, so if you ever have said that, please refrain from doing so ever again. Mispronunciation is harmful. It is lazy, shows no respect to the mana of the tangata whenua, and is misleading for people who mispronounce it, as they come to wikipedia to see how it is pronounced. You are responsible for misleading people. Now I have to put in citations to ensure my edit isn’t removed. Whether or not you are Maori is irrelevant; we must treat words of this language with respect. I know people who are Maori or can speak Maori fluently (or else have a high knowledge of tikanga) who, like me, are sick and tired of people like you preventing knowledge and letting racially motivated ignorance reign supreme. If you still don’t believe me, check out the below. https://maoridictionary.co.nz/search?idiom=&phrase=&proverb=&loan=&histLoanWords=&keywords=Kaukau — Preceding unsigned comment added by Leavepuckgackle1998 (talkcontribs) 10:18, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
