Proposed deletion of CBT (disambiguation)Edit

 

The article CBT (disambiguation) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

this is orphan page. It is currently preventing the move of CBT to this location. I want to move "CBT" to this to preserve edit history and then redirect CBT by default to "Cognitive Behaviour Therapy" with an other uses link here.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

  • (talk page watcher) @Not gain: No, Prod isn't used for redirects, WP:RFD exists. And even if Prod had been appropriate you should not have removed the redirect pre-emptively. But as CBT has existed as a dab page for 15 years, the decision whether it now has a "Primary topic" would need discussion on its talk page, not a move wanted by a single editor. I have reverted your edit. PamD 08:12, 21 July 2019 (UTC)
@Notgain:Re-ping - auto"correct" problem!PamD 08:14, 21 July 2019 (UTC)
@PamD: The page CBT was created 16 years ago, it was a redirect to Cognitive behaviour therapy. I ran a comparison using google ngram and it shows that the other items on the DAB are very rare in comparison to Cognitive behaviour therapy. I thought it would be uncontroversial. There were no inbound links to CBT (disambiguation) so it wasn't breaking any redirects. My intention was to delete CBT (disambiguation) so CBT could be moved there to preserve the history and then create a redirect from a new CBT page to Cognitive behaviour therapy. I'll open a discussion on Talk:CBT to get check for any objections. thanks Notgain (talk) 08:48, 21 July 2019 (UTC)
It was created 16 years ago and was turned into a dab page 15 years ago. I don't think it's an uncontroversial move. Please discuss it on the talk page. Thanks. PamD 10:06, 21 July 2019 (UTC)
@Notgain: OK, Googling suggests that you may be right about the Primary Topic (first 3 1/2 pages of ghits), but Prodding a redirect was an unusual way to set about it. Your recent change to the top of the dab page actually muddles the issue by suggesting that there are two related but different pages to which CBT should redirect: presumably it should (probably) go to Cognitive behavioral therapy but with a hatnote directing to the "umbrella term" list as well as to the dab page. Propose it as at Wikipedia:Requested_moves#Requesting_a_single_page_move and all will probably be well, with appropriate discussion. PamD 10:18, 21 July 2019 (UTC)
@PamD: Ok, thank you. Notgain (talk) 10:42, 21 July 2019 (UTC)

Ping!Edit

Hey did you get my ping a few days ago? I recently got motivated to create Dennis H. Carter and got several tags put on it. I've spent over a week fixing it and kind of need objective editors to see if I've addressed all the concerns. I'd apprecate your input and if you know any editors who work in the Architecture project that would be of help too.ZarhanFastfire (talk)

Condescending CommentEdit

You could have made the edit summary without the condescending comment at the end. That is not good faith nor civil. Mr. C.C.Hey yo!I didn't do it! 04:38, 1 August 2019 (UTC)

How do I recover the text/code for the deleted article?Edit

I need help on how to recover (if possible) the text of a deleted article that you submitted for deletion... My article [Glass] was deleted, and as discussed during the deletion process, several significant new sources have emerged during the discussion and several others since.

I asked the final deleting editor (twice) the same question: "how can I recover the text/code of the deleted article, so that some point in the future, once several more RS have been established, I could re-submit" --- but so far my question has been ignored twice.

Any ideas??? Thanks in advance!

WVWFEdit

Morning, sir. If you have a moment, I could use an uninvolved administrator's eyes on WVWF. An editor keeps removing without any edit summary what is pretty straightforward verifiable content, including details of license assignments and call sign changes. There are two or three articles where he's done this at least once, but this one's the worst. Based on the user name, I believe he's the station's former owner. It's not technically a 3RR or a clear-cut CoI, but it's close enough for horseshoes. Mlaffs (talk) 12:55, 3 August 2019 (UTC)

Good Evening-

I am attempting to remove things that we do not wish to be public information such as officers of our company, transaction prices, etc. Also, there are gross pieces of information about simulcasts, sister stations, etc. This page has caused me enormous issues to iron out, including vendors reaching out to me in reference to contracts as it relates to simulcasting,etc.

All of our information that we want or desire to have public is on our websites, but that has been removed. I tried one last final time tonight to rectify it.

We would like for it to be totally removed if possible.

Thank you, Bryan K. Fowler President, Consolidated Media, LLC and Fowler Media Partners

WVWF does not simulcast with any stations.

WVWF is in Clarksville, TN

Ownership Is the Corporation.

We would like for it to be totally removed if possible.

Thank you so much for your time and assistance.

/* WVWF */Edit

Good Morning-

I am not certain where the communication breakdown on this is.

Purchase prices, officers names, etc are not public information.

I'm not certain who is supposed to tell you this stuff is not to be posted if it is not me?

The website is wrong.

We do not simulcast.

There is an estate involved in this.

The purchase price is wrong, even though it should not be publicized.

Why does not EVERY other radio station have this information listed?

No one else does.

This page is going to get me litigated. I need to know how to remove it.

Thank you for your cooperation.

  • (talk page watcher) @Bearcat: I see you've protected the page. While I don't understand the complexities of American radio stations, it does look as if that final paragraph to which the above user objects, mentioning purchase price, is completely unsourced, so perhaps should be removed. PamD 19:32, 5 August 2019 (UTC)
And as a further complication, the URL given for the station provides a link which Firefox warns me away from as a security risk: "Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to wolfcountrylegends.com.". PamD 19:35, 5 August 2019 (UTC)
That appears to just be a minor issue with the site's security certificate; I'm well-protected by virus and pop-up blockers, so I took the "exception" risk and witnessed no actual problem once I got to the website. Bearcat (talk) 19:39, 5 August 2019 (UTC)
Based on the insistence that the reported price is wrong, I've verified it against the FCC filing. It was reported wrong at the time, and I've updated it accordingly, with the addition of the reference for both the ownership structure of the licensee and the price.

You are being quotedEdit

Hi. at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Adam Everett Livix you are being quoted here: [1] "for the purpose of showing why WP:CONTINUEDCOVERAGE is not required." and I thought that you might want to weigh in on the question of whether or not you believe that you are being cited fairly.E.M.Gregory (talk) 15:02, 7 August 2019 (UTC)

Julian Steele-Thanks & question re citation to census, etc available in Ancestry.comEdit

Thank you for explaining that Wikipedia doesn't allow citations to Ancestry.com. Any advice about how to cite primary sources (Freedman's Bank records, Savannah lists of Free Persons of Color, etc) which are online via Ancestry.com? I tried but templates don't work so well & I had little luck figuring this out rummaging through Wikipedia rules. Appreciate advice West Newbury (talk) 17:33, 17 August 2019 (UTC)
