Fredrik Holmlund

Hi. Maybe Fredrik Holmlund would be an artist you would like to write about? He has been twice in the Swedish Melodifestivalen with Yohio. Br Adville (talk) 08:46, 15 March 2019 (UTC)

Yes, I can certainly do an article about him in English. Thanks for the heads up.--BabbaQ (talk) 08:47, 15 March 2019 (UTC)
He is my ex collegue, therefor I do not want to write it myself, but if you have any questions I can ask him. Thanks. Adville (talk) 08:56, 15 March 2019 (UTC)
@Adville: I write this in English even though we are both Swedish. Thank you for "speaking up" about Skråmo. The relevance is clear. And I am so annoyed at SvWiki because this template "bs" happens every time you create an article about someone controversial. It's like SvWiki can't handle thar people can be notable for something evil or bad. Ok, I see why you feel you can not add the article yourself. I will take care of it within a few days. --BabbaQ (talk) 09:06, 15 March 2019 (UTC)
I did not notice you created it. Just thought it was strange the relevans came up. Ok it is not sure he is dead yet, so there I agree, but an article... thanks for the help. Adville (talk) 09:54, 15 March 2019 (UTC)
Just info, because you created it. Br Adville (talk) 19:28, 17 March 2019 (UTC)
Yes I !voted Keep just now. BabbaQ (talk) 20:57, 17 March 2019 (UTC)

Hi, I am sorry to see that the Aly Ryan's article was deleted, but I have kept a copy of it and will add it to my private wiki, which I will let you view and edit. Also can you please make an infobox for this article Jean-Marie Leclair. Davidgoodheart (talk) 01:34, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

Oh, no worries. She will likely become more notable in time. Took care of the infobox.--BabbaQ (talk) 00:47, 19 March 2019 (UTC)

Wikipedia birth

Hey Babba, I posted and deleted that comment you saw [1] on that very early user. At first I thought it was definitely Larry Sanger, and it does seem he made some edits from that account, but I'm not 100% sure yet. That IP was first editing on January 17, 2001 (the third day of Wkipedia's existence). Its first edit was the 47th edit ever. But the IP also appears to also make edits from early Wikipedian Ruth Ichfer (User:RoseParks). Its possible one (or the other) was copying in material from Nupedia, so authorship is not completely clear to me yet. So I deleted the comment until I become more sure. This info is coming from an archive of all Wikpedia edits from January 15 to early August 2001 that can be downloaded. Cheers.--Milowenthasspoken 16:09, 7 March 2019 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Aly Ryan

 

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 Aly Ryan 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 band or musician 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.

Hi, my day today has been downright lousy, as four bad things happened one of which I was told wouldn't happen by someone who thought wrong. Because of this I had to do something that was very time consuming. The only good thing about this is now I know for sure not to make the same mistake twice, as I was just about to do the same thing this morning. I will need to take a few days from Wikipedia and the computer to recover from this, but probably not at long as last time. Also thanks for your recent edits, and how have you been?

Hi, please see if you can expand these two articles Jushur and Zhu Benli, these are people whose existence is disputed, which is a topic that I find very interesting. I am sure that there are lots of sources and info that you can find which can be added to them. Also what do so think of my first independent Wikipedia article? This was once a real Wikipedia article, until it was taken down. I feel that there is often too much deletion for no good reason, which I am totally against. Davidgoodheart (talk) 06:05, 18 December 2018 (UTC)

I did expand one of the articles a bit. And added sources to the other to ensure its not deleted later on. Yeah, I took a look at it. And I think it looks ok, but you need to expand the Wiki with several more articles before anything can be done or assessed. But a good start. BabbaQ (talk) 23:00, 19 December 2018 (UTC)

Renaming and merging a category page

Hi, I would like to rename and merge a category page, but I am not sure how to, could you please help me with this? If so I will let you know what page needs this. Davidgoodheart (talk) 03:55, 30 November 2018 (UTC)

Ok. Go ahead.--BabbaQ (talk) 09:12, 30 November 2018 (UTC)

Great, I think that Category:Kidnapped Hong Kong people should be merged into Category:Kidnapped Chinese people, so that we only have Kidnapped Chinese people, since Hong Kong is now part of China and Hong Kong and Chinese people are the same race. Also please make an infobox for this article Edmund Berry Godfrey. If you can't get the picture in the inbox don't worry, my computer help guy will help me to join the two when I meet him next. Davidgoodheart (talk) 00:20, 1 December 2018 (UTC)

I have done the infobox. Better contact someone with better knowledge of Categories. I do not think I want to touch that since I have no idea about consensus etc. Rehards. BabbaQ (talk) 23:54, 2 December 2018 (UTC)

Thanks. Today I had something happen this morning that was very upsetting and unexpected. I need time to recover from this, so I will be taking a break from Wikipedia and my computer in general. Davidgoodheart (talk) 06:01, 4 December 2018 (UTC)

@Davidgoodheart: - Ok. Take care. I would have suggested you taking a Wiki-break anyway. Everyone needs one now and again, it is so easy to become Wiki-obsessed and edit too much. I take Wiki-breaks quite often, usually if you get to obsessed with editing Wikipedia it will lead Wiki-fighting that often leads to blocks etc. Take a few days, a week or whatever you need to get back to form. BabbaQ (talk) 23:24, 4 December 2018 (UTC)
@BabbaQ: Hi! I wanted to let you know that I am feeling "mostly" recovered now, and thank you for understanding how I felt. I have now published by first somewhat viewable independent Wikipedia article. Do you have a private contact that you can give me so I can send it to you, so you can see it? And thanks for your infobox on this article Jack Black (author). Davidgoodheart (talk) 23:38, 13 December 2018 (UTC)

Please have your say at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/John Francis Reuel Tolkien Rathfelder (talk) 11:39, 14 December 2018 (UTC)

Thanking you

@BabbaQ: Hi, thanks for you recent edits! Can you please make an infobox and add sources to this article Murder of Mary Money, and add sources to Orgetorix. Also please check out this article Rob Young (broadcaster). Davidgoodheart (talk) 21:55, 6 November 2018 (UTC)
Done! BabbaQ (talk) 10:58, 8 November 2018 (UTC)
@BabbaQ: Hi, Great! Could you please fix my external links on the Rob Young (broadcaster), as they was you added your external links in the last AFD deletion section being Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Bitch Lasagna. I will get back to you soon. Davidgoodheart (talk) 11:07, 8 November 2018 (UTC)
@BabbaQ: Hi can you please add sources and an infobox to this article Murder of Axel Blumberg and add some sources and break up the "Disappearance and "investigation" section of this article Disappearance of Timmothy Pitzen as it is too big. I have been busy upgrading articles, and I will get back to you soon. Thanks for your all your help lately! Davidgoodheart (talk) 21:09, 9 November 2018 (UTC)
@Davidgoodheart: Done! No worries.
@BabbaQ: Hi, It's great to hear from you! Could you please fix the external links on Bindy Johal. I plan to add this article to the List of unsolved deaths. If you click on it, it will take you right to the external links that need fixing, which are the very bottom of the page. I do not yet know how to fix external links. Davidgoodheart (talk) 02:42, 11 November 2018 (UTC)
I had to remove both external links as they were way too long to be formatted. I don't think that a Google search result overall is acceptable for external links. If you find someone else that can fix it then good. :)BabbaQ (talk) 09:18, 12 November 2018 (UTC)
Take a look at the article about Gemma McCluskie that I created years ago. Might interest you. BabbaQ (talk) 09:23, 12 November 2018 (UTC)
If you had to remove the external links, then fine as they are not needed, and it looks better without have them unformatted. This article Gemma McCluskie is very impressive. I did not know that you made it, you are a great article creator as well as a great editor! Davidgoodheart (talk) 09:39, 12 November 2018 (UTC)
@BabbaQ: Hi, can you please make infoboxes for these article Odunayo Olagbaju, Paolo Renda, Luciano Arruga, and Eduardo Newbery. I am going to take a day or two break from editing as I need to do some other things. Thank you so much for your help! Davidgoodheart (talk) 23:14, 12 November 2018 (UTC)
@BabbaQ: Hi, please see if you can expand this article Daisy Grace, and make infoboxes for Laurens de Graaf and Elsie Sigel. Thanks! Davidgoodheart (talk) 23:05, 27 November 2018 (UTC) (talk) 23:04, 27 November 2018 (UTC)
@Davidgoodheart: - Done. I could find no further useful info on Daisy though. Also, I personally do not care one way or another, but you should be careful with editing other people's talk page messages that are not posted by you. Other editors could see those kind of edits that changes posts as unconstructive at best, and vandalism at worst. Which could lead to you being blocked for some time. Just letting you know since I see that you have edited several of the messages that I have received by others. Regards. BabbaQ (talk) 22:24, 28 November 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know this, and for your recent edits as well. Take care! Davidgoodheart (talk) 01:18, 29 November 2018 (UTC)

Happy Thanksgiving

@BabbaQ: Hi, have a happy thanksgiving weekend, and I will get back to you soon. Take care! Davidgoodheart (talk) 08:33, 6 October 2018 (UTC)
Likewise! Take care. --BabbaQ (talk) 10:28, 6 October 2018 (UTC)
@BabbaQ: Hi, could you please add sources to two these articles Visitors (fictional race) and Tusken Raiders. Davidgoodheart (talk) 03:15, 9 October 2018 (UTC)
Done!. --BabbaQ (talk) 21:15, 9 October 2018 (UTC)
@BabbaQ: Hi, can you please can an infobox for this article Kidnapping of Carlina White and leave some sources for this article Leszli Kálli. I will get back to you soon, and thanks for your recent edits! Davidgoodheart (talk) 21:05, 11 October 2018 (UTC)
Done and done. I have been busy editing the article about Leif Axmyr a Swedish murderer who died today.--BabbaQ (talk) 22:45, 11 October 2018 (UTC)
Yes, I see and thanks, and I too have made some edits to it as well. Thanks for your edits! Davidgoodheart (talk) 23:01, 11 October 2018 (UTC)
@BabbaQ: Hi, can you please take people from this list Category:Kidnapped businesspeople and add them to the List of kidnappings, thats anyone that you don't currently see on the list, which would probably go under the heading Modern kidnappings of celebrities or their relatives of that article. Also please fix the external link on Harley Race where it says [1]. Also I will be making a new category and disambiguation page and I would like if you could review them when they are done and see if there is anything which you can add to them. Take care and thanks! Davidgoodheart (talk) 05:58, 16 October 2018 (UTC)
I took care of the Harley situation. I can review that if you send me a link when its time. My only weakness is formatting columns. So you will have to find someone else to help you with the List situation. I can help you with formatting within bio articles sometimes and sometimes not, if it concerns smaller tweaks or references. The Harley Race article is interesting. BabbaQ (talk) 09:36, 16 October 2018 (UTC)
@BabbaQ: Here is the category which I have created that needs reviewing Category:IWGP Heavyweight champions. Please review it and see what if yo can add to it as well. I will get back to you soon. Davidgoodheart (talk) 03:22, 21 October 2018 (UTC)
From what I can see everyone is included. So good work on that cat. BabbaQ (talk) 09:43, 21 October 2018 (UTC)
On another positive note my article about Åke Ortmark was included in the RD section on the Main Page last night. BabbaQ (talk) 09:46, 21 October 2018 (UTC)
@BabbaQ: Hi, can you please make infoboxes for these articles Nevio Skull, Death of Emilie Meng, Joan Winters, and Murders of Lyle and Marie McCann – this one will need two infoboxes, one on top of another. I will get back to you soon, but right now I am busy and can only do so much editing at at time. Also today my computer help guy is coming over to help me. Also I am glad that your article was included on RD section on the Main Page last night as well! Davidgoodheart (talk) 12:18, 27 October 2018 (UTC) (talk) 00:25, 24 October 2018 (UTC)
@Davidgoodheart: - Done. Might be some formatting issue but otherwise complete. Sorry for the delay, but I have been going through a bad cold for a few days. But now I am back. Hope everything went well with the computer help. Let me know any updates. BabbaQ (talk) 23:20, 29 October 2018 (UTC)
@BabbaQ: Hi, you say you have been going through a bad cold? Well I have as well! Hopefully soon I will be completely recovered from this horrible cold. Things might be looking up for me, take care and I will get back to you soon. I have now upgraded this article's Nevio Skull infobox. Davidgoodheart (talk) 04:22, 30 October 2018 (UTC)
Yes, a serious one. Now I do feel better. Good to hear that you feel better as well. I noticed that I forgot a detail in the infoboxes, but you took care of it. Thanks. BabbaQ (talk) 08:28, 30 October 2018 (UTC)
I was glad today to have found a dead link in the article about robber Liam Norberg that I have created. Regards. BabbaQ (talk) 08:30, 30 October 2018 (UTC)
@BabbaQ: Great! I am now almost completely recovered, from my sickness, and things ARE looking up for me! I just hope that they will continue. I will talk to you soon. Davidgoodheart (talk) 00:35, 31 October 2018 (UTC)
@BabbaQ: Hi, I have now completely recovered from my sickness! Can you please make an infobox for this article Relisha Rudd. I had help from my computer help guy today, and soon we will be trying new things to get my project done quicker. And congratulations for being named editor of the week! Davidgoodheart (talk) 00:51, 4 November 2018 (UTC)
@Davidgoodheart: - Done! Ok good to see that your work is progressing. Yes, that efitpr of the week! Right now I am focusing on the article about Sharon Dyall. I can also wanted to ping you about reading the article about Fallet Kevin that I created. It is obe of Swedens most notorious crime cases. BabbaQ (talk) 09:23, 4 November 2018 (UTC)
@BabbaQ: Hi, can you please make infoboxes for these articles Edward F. Sands, Philip Christoph von Königsmarck, and Georgy Brusilov. I have now looked at the Fallet Kevin article, and have make some upgrades. It's a well written article! Also I don't think the kids who were said to have killed Kevin who were that young would be capable of murder, also they would be too young to be charged as well. In Canada where I'm from the youngest age that you can charged and go to youth jail is 12 years old. Davidgoodheart (talk) 06:57, 5 November 2018 (UTC)

Katerine Duska moved to draftspace

An article you recently created, Katerine Duska, 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. 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. Boleyn (talk) 22:05, 15 January 2019 (UTC)
