Your closure of Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Fiddlesticks! (interjection)

is clearly outside the bounds of Wikipedia:Non-admin_closure#Appropriate_closures. I've literally never seen a "soft redirect to wikitionary," something that wasn't even brought up in the actual AfD discussion as a result of a DICDEF AfD. This is going to DRV.--Savonneux (talk) 02:18, 9 September 2015 (UTC)

Deletion review for Fiddlesticks! (interjection)

AfD closures

I understand that I have closed a few AfD debates against consensus. I will try to gain more experience to prevent any more mistakes. Therefore, I am going to voluntarily stop non-admin closing AfD debates until the end of September. I hope this would be acceptable to other editors.

Islamic themed hooks into DYK sets

In case you don't check on such things before building a set, there are several important events occurring this week on the Islamic calendar. The Hajj begins Tuesday, September 22 while Eid al-Adha begins the next day. Assuming everything runs smoothly between now and then, the next set in Prep 4 should move to the Main page at 00:00 22 September (UTC). There are several hooks dealing with the Armenian Genocide that would be best avoided on these days unless there is an explicit reason the hook should run on a specific date (the most obvious being Template:Did you know nominations/Reşid Akif Paşa). Conversely, if you see a pro-Islamic hook you might consider saving it for these dates. There is no problem if you do not find any or place them in sets for other dates. The big thing is to avoid giving offense when there is no need. --Allen3 talk 16:29, 18 September 2015 (UTC)

Fifty Shades of Grey, source reliability of Cracked.

Cracked.com has "matured" quite a bit from what you might consider it. Regardless, their "personal experience" series includes original interviews of sources with first hand information on the topics as well as citations of primary, "traditional" sources. Don't look at it so much as coming from "Cracked", but coming from their interviewee, in this case a professional BDSM practitioner. It is an incredible source that specifically refutes and criticizes Fifty Shades for its depiction of bondage, and how E.L. James completely misunderstands the dynamics of these relationships. And all this from someone, a professional, with first hand knowledge of BDSM and years of experience. I think it should be allowed to stand. This quote in the "Controversies" is as concise and complete as I've found in summing up Fifty Shades' failure to understand bondage and the BDSM community as a whole. Importantly, said quote comes directly from the source, it's not Cracked's interpretation or summation of what she said.

I'm new to working on Wikipedia, and as well I'm doing so from a Kindle, so all editing and "Talk" options may not be available to me; I don't know. Any help is greatly appreciated. Peace, villain, peace! 18:45, 15 September 2015 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Savcam500 (talkcontribs)

It depends on how you define "matured". Still, I do not think this source is suitable for backing up such statements, and the Controversies section on the Fifty Shades of Grey article has already been considered WP:UNDUE, so I would not really want to expand it so much. sstflyer 04:53, 16 September 2015 (UTC)

Why has it been considered undue or non-neutral? It seems that the vast majority of the BDSM community supports these criticisms of Fifty Shades. And would you please explain why this interview, conducted with a professional Mistress, does not back up these exact issues raised within, and by, the Bondage community. Thank you.

Re: Montanabw AfD hit rate and RfA

Your AfD statistics are not good, with a hit rate lower than 65%. Will you avoid closing deletion discussions (at least before gaining more experience) if you become an admin?

I appear to be the only one having trouble following your reasoning. Anyone can get a hit rate of 90% or higher by simply waiting until the middle of the discussion and adding a keep/delete based on what the majority have previously opined prior to this close. Are you encouraging this kind of narrow groupthink by evaluating a hit rate based on how well one agrees with others? A lower hit rate shows independent thought that isn't subject to peer pressure or conformity, a much greater community value than conformity. AfD's are not an exercise in team building. You're basically marginalizing dissent in your elevation of hit rates, dissent which could radically change the outcome of an erroneous consent or shift the balance into no consensus -- the percentage of which you don't even include in your so-called "hit rate". I have followed and participated in numerous AfD's where the majority was wrong and this wasn't rectified until months, sometimes years later. And yet by your count, an editor who conformed to error rather than dissenting towards correction, would be more suitable as an admin. You can't be serious! Viriditas (talk) 01:45, 19 September 2015 (UTC)

There is a reason why I voted Support for this RfA. I admit that my question may be poorly constructed, but since Montanabw herself noted that she favors inclusionism, and other voters in the RfA noted that she frequently voted Keep for articles that fail notability guidelines, I don't think it is so much of a problem. sstflyer 01:50, 19 September 2015 (UTC)
I mostly agree, but the focus on unimportant things like hit rates leads to the gamification of RfA. Avoid controversial articles, don't get in any disputes, and conform to the opinions of others and you've got a sure shot at RfA. This reinfores the iron law of oligarchy, with admins as an elite class who strangely enough, work to undermine democratic initiatives, policies, and guidelines, with the end result that they focus more on tightening their own power and control. You can add me to the list of editors who wishes to see adminship eliminated for this reason. Thanks. Viriditas (talk) 02:03, 19 September 2015 (UTC)

Talk:Coast Guard City/GA1

SSTflyer, I was surprised to see that you passed this article so quickly. You may or may not know that I expressed concerns on the WT:GAN page that it did not meet the requirements of WP:LEAD (it does not, in my view, touch on the History section material and should), and looking at it the requirements of WP:LAYOUT, in particular the placement of images, don't seem to have been adhered to. Both of these are criteria in 1b on the review form you used, and I believe there is still work to be done here—not difficult work, certainly addressable in the standard "hold" period, but not yet to GA standard.

I'm also concerned that it doesn't meet the broadness criteria. I would expect an article about a program such as this to discuss how it came to be. I don't know whether the Coast Guard asked Congress for it or it was a Congressional initiative, why Grand Haven was specified in the legislation that authorized the program, and so on. There's very little background information here, and Good Articles should include significantly more. BlueMoonset (talk) 06:51, 22 September 2015 (UTC)

My understanding is that there is some sort of personal conflict between you and LavaBaron, with you personally attacking him, so you may not be able to act neutrally in this situation. Also, the broadness criteria of GA is different from the comprehensiveness requirement of FA. You are clearly more familiar with the GA process than I am, so I am happy to be corrected. sstflyer 08:03, 22 September 2015 (UTC)

Controversies of Fifty Shades of Grey

 

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Controversies of Fifty Shades of Grey, and it appears to include material copied directly from http://www.fiftyshadesofgreyreviewed.com/2013/02/controversies-origin-as-fan-fiction.html.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted.

Move

For a start, the title "Controversies of Fifty Shades of Grey" is meaningless in English. Maybe "Controversy relating to..." would have some merit. But in any case, "controversies" does not imply negativity any more than "Critical response" does. However, "Critical response to Fifty Shades of Grey" is at least consistent with other comparable articles. Deb (talk) 10:52, 25 September 2015 (UTC)

Thanks anyway. I have moved the article to Criticism of Fifty Shades of Grey. sstflyer 10:55, 25 September 2015 (UTC)

Dear editor, I have edited my article according to your notification. Added new reliable sources to show the notability of the subject, please review it again. Can it be resubmitted? thank you

Unfortunately, I don't think this topic meets the general notability guideline, so I don't think that it will ever be accepted, no matter how you try to improve it. sstflyer 08:31, 30 September 2015 (UTC)
So the problem is in the subject of the article itself, not the content, am I correct? Please specify which of the WP:GNG AVS Video Converter does not meet ("Significant coverage", "Reliable sources", "Independent of the subject" or "Presumed" ). I do not quiet understand why Total video converter or Any Video Converter meet the notability guideline, if it was only for the topic, as these are also video converters. Thank you for the answer.

Request on 05:39:49, 3 October 2015 for assistance on AfC submission by Bubek~enwiki


Hey SSTFlyer - I see that the QuestionPro entry was rejected for "notability" ; I thought I had "Cited" a bunch of news sources for making it notable; Here are some examples that are already cited; (all of which should qualify - I think as independent, verifiable and likely notable.)

a) Forbes : http://www.forbes.com/sites/adrianalopez/2012/08/23/what-entrepreneurs-can-learn-from-this-weeks-tech-acquisition/ b) Data Quest - India : http://www.dqindia.com/questionpro-launches-free-academic-license-for-educational-institutions-in-india/ c) Seattle Times Blog: http://blog.seattletimes.nwsource.com/brierdudley/2012/08/21/questionpro_expands_mobile_lin.html d) Seattle Times - I've also cited another publication from Seattle times for SurveyAnalytics - Which is the company that operated QuestionPro. http://www.seattletimes.com/business/dont-count-out-this-startup-survey-analytics-seems-like-a-plum-acquisition-target/

I've also editing and added more citations for the universities that use QuestionPro; Some of them are listed below; OKBU, Virgina Commonwealth etc.

I've also linked to a few Non-Profit institutions using QuestionPro under the Non-Profit Section. I've added in sections to clearly spell out the different aspects.

Finally, Captera listed QuestionPro as the #2 Survey Software here; http://www.capterra.com/survey-software/#infographic

This is above and below SurveyMonkey and Qualtrics (both of which have Wikipedia pages)

I would love to understand what else I can do to showcase and verify notability? Thanks much!
