WP:CSD#G7Edit

Hi Fitzcarmalan,

I've speedied the article you tagged in your user space, but I've declined all of the articles in article space. Three of them were definitely not eligible, as other editors had made improvements/changes to them. Peter Martyr's mission to Egypt was more of an edge case, because all of the changes by others were typo fixing or updating templates. However, at the end of the day, that article has been incorporated into the encyclopedia enough (incoming links, edits by others) that I don't think G7 applies.

Sorry to see that you're apparently quite frustrated with something. If you decide to return, any admin will be happy to restore the user space draft. If not, then thanks for all your work in the past. --Floquenbeam (talk) 20:21, 25 February 2019 (UTC)

I specifically chose the first articles that came to mind in which more than 90% of contributions in terms of byte size (and quality) were mine. They will be re-nominated along with several others, and I hope you will respect my decision this time. Fitzcarmalan (talk) 20:53, 25 February 2019 (UTC)
That is really not how it works. This has come up a few times before, and the consensus has been that if someone is leaving because they are angry, they do not get to nominate all of their articles for deletion, even if some of them don't have many contributions from others. I will, of course, delete any drafts in your user space where no one else has contributed. But please don't nominate these articles anymore, I've already declined the {{db-author}} request. --Floquenbeam (talk) 21:28, 25 February 2019 (UTC)
I see you nominated a few more. Based on the consensus I've seen on this in the past, I'm declining them; the consensus has been that mass nominating articles for WP:CSD#G7 isn't a "good faith" nomination. If you'd like, we can ask at WT:CSD or WP:AN, but from seeing this in the past, I'm fairly confident they won't be deleted. --Floquenbeam (talk) 21:38, 25 February 2019 (UTC)

Something going on?Edit

This is unlike your usual comportment. Can't help but inquire if there's something bothering you? Some circumstances we find ourselves in can be wearying and encourage us to disregard this project entirely and retire after we've already put much though on it previously. If you truly are retiring, thank you for all your previous contributions. I understand the desire, albeit Wikipedia would benefit if you decide to come back in the future which I hope you do.

I do not know if that matters, but I am willing self-revert on the page Douma chemical attack if that was the reason for you leaving the project (I am not sure). My very best wishes (talk) 18:20, 27 February 2019 (UTC)
