Speedy deletion nomination of John Fetterman (disambiguation)Edit

A tag has been placed on John Fetterman (disambiguation) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G14 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a disambiguation page which either

  • disambiguates only one extant Wikipedia page and whose title ends in "(disambiguation)" (i.e., there is a primary topic);
  • disambiguates zero extant Wikipedia pages, regardless of its title; or
  • is an orphaned redirect with a title ending in "(disambiguation)" that does not target a disambiguation page or page that has a disambiguation-like function.

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such pages may be deleted at any time. Please see the disambiguation page guidelines for more information.

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. Crouch, Swale (talk) 10:56, 25 February 2021 (UTC)

Yep. Should have been done with the December move of the politician to the base name. I effected it. -- JHunterJ (talk) 12:29, 25 February 2021 (UTC)

Pilot (disambiguation)Edit

Hello
I notice you completed the RM on this page a few months ago: I'm contacting you as I think this page move was questionable. There were four comments in favour, with comments like 'expectation will be for aircraft pilot to be primary', 'clearly primary', 'I agree aircraft pilot is primary', 'common usage... IMHO', while the two against both pointed to actual pageviews, which showed (or currently show) no such thing. Disregarding a spike for Maritime Pilot in March (probably due to the Suez canal incident), it shows TV pilot ahead of Aircraft and Maritime pilot, which are broadly similar. There is nothing to suggest one option is 'more likely than any other single topic, and more likely than all the other topics combined' to be the primary topic. Can we revisit this? Moonraker12 (talk) 11:56, 13 April 2021 (UTC)
PS: I meant to add, The first comment, which started 'I agree', actually ended 'I think the current setup (ie. Pilot as a noprimary dab page) is probably best': Was this misconstrued as support? Moonraker12 (talk) 12:27, 13 April 2021 (UTC)

There wasn't consensus after a week, so I relisted it. The comments made after the relisting favored the implemented steps. -- JHunterJ (talk) 12:49, 13 April 2021 (UTC)
Fair enough; but as the four votes in favour were personal opinion, while the three opposed were based on fact, do you think, on reflection, that the original arrangement would be better? If not, can you suggest how I should pursue it further? Moonraker12 (talk) 22:17, 13 April 2021 (UTC)
I've no objection to a new move request. -- JHunterJ (talk) 11:48, 14 April 2021 (UTC)
OK, thanks: I’ll put my thinking cap on... Moonraker12 (talk) 18:54, 15 April 2021 (UTC)

Apache Directory Server is ADSEdit

Hello JHJ, you removed the entry for Apache Directory Server from ADS although your comment only said "Disambiguation page style repair". Do let me know if you had an issue with the entry. Otherwise you may want to place it back. Jay (talk) 10:09, 24 April 2021 (UTC)

No mention of ADS on that page, so I removed it. MOS:DABACRONYM. Cheers! --JHunterJ (talk) 14:48, 24 April 2021 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Outcasts (Marvel Comics mutants)Edit

 

The article Outcasts (Marvel Comics mutants) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Fails WP:GNG.

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. TTN (talk) 20:52, 10 May 2021 (UTC)

AndersonEdit

Hi. In April 2020, you made this edit of Anderson. That disambiguation page already links to Anderson (given name), where all these people - and more - are listed. My opinion is that the section you created is WP:OR, because you're essentially saying that some people whose first name is Anderson are more "known as Anderson" than others. Again, in my opinion, that entire § People section adds no value, and it might even confuse some visitors, who may think all people with given name Anderson are meant to be listed there. --143.176.30.65 (talk) 15:00, 4 June 2021 (UTC)

The disambiguation page disambiguates all topics that are ambiguous with the title, so the People section provides that value. No WP:OR in listing them in the disambiguation page if the linked article identifies them as being known by the single name. Possibly there's OR on those pages, but that would be a topic of discussion for those pages, and if that information were removed from the linked article, then the disambiguation entry would be removed. -- JHunterJ (talk) 15:16, 4 June 2021 (UTC)
Thanks for your reply. What do you think of the idea to list these people in the § Names section, under Anderson (given name), with an extra level of indentation? --143.176.30.65 (talk) 15:20, 4 June 2021 (UTC)
Or, how about changing the heading from "People" to "People known as Anderson"? --143.176.30.65 (talk) 15:22, 4 June 2021 (UTC)
Or, perhaps even better, give the Anderson (given name) link at Anderson the description ", list of people whose given name is Anderson, including people mononymously known as Anderson" - and then create a separate section in Anderson (given name) with those addressed by a single name. --143.176.30.65 (talk) 15:28, 4 June 2021 (UTC)
They are welcome to be listed anywhere else as well, but they need to be listed at the disambiguation page for the navigational benefit of the readers who reach the page seeking one of those topics. "Known as Anderson" could be appended to any of the headers, but is redundant with the "may refer to". -- JHunterJ (talk) 20:56, 4 June 2021 (UTC)
I think not a single one of those articles has a source for them being simply/commonly known as "Anderson". I can imagine they'll be called (just) Anderson, even on TV, because that's their given name. And perhaps soccer players are more likely to be informally addressed, given the whole 'one of us' vibe of the sport. What's stopping editors from adding simply/commonly known as "Anderson" claims to all other articles, and then also adding them to the more-Anderson-than-others overview... Anyway, I'm going to leave it there. I see you're an admin, you probably know what you're doing. --143.176.30.65 (talk) 21:31, 4 June 2021 (UTC)
Although just the fact that literally all the more-Anderson-than-others are a) footballers, b) Brazilian, c) claim of simply/commonly known as "Anderson" without reference, tells me that it's ridiculous to keep that special little list you've created for them. --143.176.30.65 (talk) 21:44, 4 June 2021 (UTC)
You are welcome to challenge the unsourced information at those articles' talk pages. Until it's removed from them, though, the disambiguation page disambiguates them. -- JHunterJ (talk) 19:53, 7 June 2021 (UTC)

Wikipedia Wars and the Israel-Palestine conflict...please fill out my survey?Edit

Hello :) I am writing my MA dissertation on Wikipedia Wars and the Israel-Palestine conflict, and I noticed that you have contributed to those pages. My dissertation will look at the process of collaborative knowledge production on the Israel-Palestine conflict, and the effect it has on bias in the articles. This will involve understanding the profiles and motivations of editors, contention/controversy and dispute resolution in the talk pages, and bias in the final article.

For more information, you can check out my meta-wiki research page or my user page, where I will be posting my findings when I am done.

I would greatly appreciate if you could take 5 minutes to fill out this quick survey before 8 August 2021.

Participation in this survey is entirely voluntary and anonymous. There are no foreseeable risks nor benefits to you associated with this project.

Thanks so much,

Sarah Sanbar

Adam Hughes talk pageEdit

Hi. You may recall "Real_Power"_poster in April 2019 we had a disruptive IP editor with an Austin, Texas-based IP constantly reverting the wording in passages in the Adam Hughes article pertaining to the "Real Power in the DC Universe" poster. Now another Austin-based IP is doing so, beginning with this edit. I then reverted it, explaining why their edits were not improvements, but they reverted it again, insisting I take it to the talk page, which I did "Real_Power_of_the_DC_Universe"_passage here. Can you participate? Thanks. Nightscream (talk) 02:41, 26 July 2021 (UTC)

Basis for Red River (Asia) move rationale?Edit

I'm curious what your basis was for this RM closure and moving of Red River (Asia) to Hong River since no evidence was provided to support the new name. Thanks. —  AjaxSmack  02:26, 13 August 2021 (UTC)

But the discussion supported the move and no opposition was given, so I'm curious why you'd ask about a 16-month-old move that had unanimous support. Feel free to propose a new move. -- JHunterJ (talk) 12:32, 13 August 2021 (UTC)
I just stumbled on the article and was surprised at the title which is an uncommon name for the river. While there was no opposition to a move, there was also no rationale, so I was wondering if I had missed something. Thanks. —  AjaxSmack  17:16, 13 August 2021 (UTC)

Administrators will no longer be autopatrolledEdit

A recently closed Request for Comment (RFC) reached consensus to remove Autopatrolled from the administrator user group. You may, similarly as with Edit Filter Manager, choose to self-assign this permission to yourself. This will be implemented the week of December 13th, but if you wish to self-assign you may do so now.

How we will see unregistered usersEdit

Hi!

You get this message because you are an admin on a Wikimedia wiki.

When someone edits a Wikimedia wiki without being logged in today, we show their IP address. As you may already know, we will not be able to do this in the future. This is a decision by the Wikimedia Foundation Legal department, because norms and regulations for privacy online have changed.

Instead of the IP we will show a masked identity. You as an admin will still be able to access the IP. There will also be a new user right for those who need to see the full IPs of unregistered users to fight vandalism, harassment and spam without being admins. Patrollers will also see part of the IP even without this user right. We are also working on better tools to help.

If you have not seen it before, you can read more on Meta. If you want to make sure you don’t miss technical changes on the Wikimedia wikis, you can subscribe to the weekly technical newsletter.

We have two suggested ways this identity could work. We would appreciate your feedback on which way you think would work best for you and your wiki, now and in the future. You can let us know on the talk page. You can write in your language. The suggestions were posted in October and we will decide after 17 January.

Thank you. /Johan (WMF)

WP:AFC Helper NewsEdit

Hello! I wanted to drop a quick note for all of our AFC participants; nothing huge and fancy like a newsletter, but a few points of interest.

  • AFCH will now show live previews of the comment to be left on a decline.
  • The template {{db-afc-move}} has been created - this template is similar to {{db-move}} when there is a redirect in the way of an acceptance, but specifically tells the patrolling admin to let you (the draft reviewer) take care of the actual move.

Short and sweet, but there's always more to discuss at WT:AFC. Stop on by, maybe review a draft on the way? Whether you're one of our top reviewers, or haven't reviewed in a while, I want to thank you for helping out in the past and in the future. Cheers, Primefac, via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 16:00, 16 February 2022 (UTC)
