Article name change

This article should be called Vesuvio Cafe and NOT Vesuvio's. That is just a nickname. As you can see from the official site for the establishment in the article the proper name is Vesuvio Cafe. Please change this article title! Thanks! See the article link here:

This reality TV show has had a number of spinoffs and there are a lot Wikipedia pages about this show and the contestants for it on Wikipedia already, thanks. (talk) 22:34, 5 July 2011 (UTC)

Âddition to article LCD

Have put a proposed addition to the article on LCD on the corresponding discussion page but was not able to sign it by putting SwissLCD (talk) 09:59, 6 July 2011 (UTC) under my contribution. How come ? SwissLCD (talk) 09:59, 6 July 2011 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) You sign your posts with ~~~~, so you don't have to type all that signature out. I checked the edit filter log, and it didn't show any filters that tripped on you. Could you link to the page in question? Reaper Eternal (talk) 10:30, 6 July 2011 (UTC)


Thank you for fixing my mistake on Jackita. I was going to fix it, but you already did. Thanks again! MJ94 (talk) 03:18, 8 July 2011 (UTC)


Sir, actually I need help, I put tag correctly by criteria but some admins like user:AllyD is confusing me about that, you can see that on my talk page, I put the nominating tag for deletion on those autobiographic articles which have not references but this admin stopping me. Can you help me, thanks.--AssassiN's Creed (talk) 22:47, 11 July 2011 (UTC)

FIrst of all, AllyD isn't an admin. Second, instead of nominating unreferenced BLPs for deletion through AFD, you can use another process. See WP:BLPPROD. Go to the "PROD" option in Twinkle and select "BLP PROD". GFOLEY FOUR!— 22:51, 11 July 2011 (UTC)

Need your help

The Bilawal Zardari Bhutto page is improperly titled. The correct title is Bilawal Bhutto Zardari. The page is move-protected. Could you move it? Reformation32 (talk) 16:13, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

It seems to have been moved before. "17:50, 24 January 2010 WWGB (talk | contribs | block) m (0) (moved Bilawal Bhutto Zardari to Bilawal Zardari Bhutto: preferred name order according to (undo)" It would probably be best for you to follow the instructions at WP:RM and make an official move request.

New bookstore infobox template suggestion

It would be a good idea for a new bookstore infobox template to be added to Wikipedia. There are a number of bookstore articles listed on Wikipedia and it seems fitting to have a bookstore infobox. Using a company infobox does not feel as accurate. A bookstore infobox would work better. Here are some of the bookstore Wikipedia articles this new infobox could be used for:

Right changes

What was this about, it showed up on my watchlist "changed rights for User:PumpkinSky from account creator, autopatrolled, confirmed user, file mover, reviewer and rollbacker to account creator, autopatrolled, file mover, reviewer and rollbacker (autoconfirmed)"? Just curious. PumpkinSky talk 01:33, 18 July 2011 (UTC)

I was just removing the Comfirmed right that is unnecessary since you are WP:Autoconfirmed. It won't change anything you see/do. GFOLEY FOUR!— 01:41, 18 July 2011 (UTC)

Vandalism only

Hi there FOLEY, VASCO here,

the last two IPs i reported (message with the same title, seen in this page still) still have not received their due, but that's cool, they have not acted since my report, but their actions were disruptive believe me.

Now, found this: in Nélson Oliveira, "user" up to no good, has even managed to move the footballer's talkpage to another one he insists in creating. Well, at least he's only focused (obssessed?) with only one article, but it's vandalism ONLY!

Attentively, happy weekend - --Vasco Amaral (talk) 23:50, 21 July 2011 (UTC)

I'll monitor them, as always! GFOLEY FOUR!— 05:09, 25 July 2011 (UTC)

Question about socks and blocks

Hello there. At WP:Sockpuppet investigations/JimmyDarmodyRules‎ you blocked sockmaster JimmyDarmodyRules (talk · contribs) for 72h. There is a new IP editor who I believe is the same person and currently editing the Falling Skies page. Is this allowed or considered getting around a block? (see contributions of (talk · contribs · info · WHOIS) and (talk · contribs · info · WHOIS)). IP has removed some sourced ratings information [1] just as sock Arrested Developer (talk · contribs) did here in a mass deletion (removing lots of other stuff, too). Sockmaster/socks were all deleting anything negative from the article, although now IP gives another reason. IP also removed redlinks [2], as did sock AllianceApprovedMagician (talk · contribs): [3]. Just wondering about this. Thanks. --Logical Fuzz (talk) 23:47, 24 July 2011 (UTC)

Blocked the latest ip for 72h; extended block on the 'master sock' to indef. I'll also put that page on my watchlist. GFOLEY FOUR!— 05:07, 25 July 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion rationales

Hi Gfoley, you have apparently sometimes speedily deleted article citing Not:essay as the reason; this is now being quoted as justification for using that as a valid speedy deletion rationale, which it is not. The discussion is taking place at User talk:SwisterTwister#Speedy deletion contested: Odorless colorless tasteless chemical poison in the worlds water supply. I have argued that in the two cited cases, there were actually other valid speedy deletion criteria, despite your citing not essay. Care to join the discussion?

Giants roster template protection

Now that the Beltran trade has been made official (the reason for the edit warring), could you please unprotect Template:San Francisco Giants roster so changes can be made? Much appreciated. -- bmitchelfTF 16:34, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

Haplogroup J1c3d (Y-DNA)

Thanks for your help with the Haplogroup J1c3d (Y-DNA) page. It was my first experience with vandalism so I was at a loss of what to do.--Victar (talk) 05:55, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

Actually that's not vandalism. Please (re-)read WP:VAND#NOT. GFOLEY FOUR!— 05:56, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
It is not when you start deleting whole page sections? --Victar (talk) 06:14, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
The page says, "Removing all or significant parts of a page's content without any reason, or replacing entire pages with nonsense [is vandalism]." He did give a reason – valid in your mind or not. GFOLEY FOUR!— 06:17, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

Spam IPs

This IP belongs to the range, which seems to be producing only spam and vandalism - purely disruptive. See almost no constructive edits, no danger of collateral damage.Jasper Deng (talk) 22:30, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

There is hardly any activity coming from that range – so I'm declining to block. Furthermore, the user is spamming via a range too large to block. GFOLEY FOUR!— 22:37, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

We need to discuss "vandalism"

From an edit by User:Marinapeaches:

In 2009, Newsome came under attack for the City of San Francisco's policy of illegally harboring juvenile criminal aliens. The city was circumventing Immigration and Customs Enforcement by harboring or sending the aliens back to their own native countries. [1]

That's a blatant violation of WP:NPOV, and NPOV is covered by the uw-vandalism user warning series. What am I missing here? – Muboshgu (talk) 22:59, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

Just because it's in the uw- series, doesn't make it vandalism. NPOV is explained in WP:VAND#NOT. Please (re-)read that. GFOLEY FOUR!— 23:02, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
So even though Template:uw-npov4 states "the next time you violate Wikipedia's neutral point of view policy by inserting commentary or your personal analysis into an article, you may be blocked from editing without further notice", the offender will in fact not be blocked from editing without further notice. – Muboshgu (talk) 23:08, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
No, he can still be blocked. Just not for vandalism. In this case, I decided to protect the article. GFOLEY FOUR!— 23:09, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
