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 "Click here to contest this speedy deletion".

Hello, Lottolads. I wanted to let you know that I’m proposing an article that you started, Aer Lingus Flight 485, for deletion because I don't think it meets our criteria for inclusion. If you don't want the article deleted:

Phoenix ModelsEdit

Is the subject notable?Xx236 (talk) 07:24, 2 November 2015 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Phoenix ModelsEdit

 

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Phoenix Models requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person, a group of people, an individual animal, an organization (band, club, company, etc.), web content, or an organized event, but it does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

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 removed without delay.

ArbCom elections are now open!Edit

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page. For the Election committee, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 17:11, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

Signpost exit pollEdit

Dear Wikipedian, you recently voted in the ArbCom election. Your username, along with around 155 other usernames of your fellow Wikipedians, was randomly selected from the 2000+ Wikipedians who voted this year, with the help of one of the election-commissioners. If you are willing, could you please participate (at your option either on-wiki via userspace or off-wiki via email) in an exit poll, and answer some questions about how you decided amongst the ArbCom candidates?

  If you decide to participate in this exit poll, the statistical results will be published in the Signpost, an online newspaper with over 1000 Wikipedians among the readership. There are about twelve questions, which have alphanumerical answers; it should take you a few minutes to complete the exit poll questionnaire, and will help improve Wikipedia by giving future candidates information about what you think is important. This is only an unofficial survey, and will have no impact on your actual vote during this election, nor in any future election.

  All questions are individually optional, and this entire exit poll itself is also entirely optional, though if you choose not to participate, I would appreciate a brief reply indicating why you decided not to take part (see Question Zero). Thanks for being a Wikipedian

The questionnaireEdit

Dear Wikipedian, please fill out these questions -- at your option via usertalk or via email, see Detailed Instructions at the end of the twelve questions -- by putting the appropriate answer in the blanks provided. If you decide not to answer a question (all questions are optional), please put the reason down: "undecided" / "private information" / "prefer not to answer" / "question is not well-posed" / "other: please specify". Although the Signpost cannot guarantee that complex answers can be processed for publication, it will help us improve future exit polls, if you give us comments about why you could not answer specific questions.

Once you have completed the usertalk-based exit poll answers, click here to notify the Signpost copy-editor, leave a short usertalk note, and click save. The point of leaving the usertalk note, is to make sure your answers are processed and published.

GamerPro64 will be processing the email-based answers, and will strive to maintain the privacy of your answers (as well as your email address and the associated IP address typically found in the email-headers), though of course as a volunteer effort, we cannot legally guarantee that GamerPro64 will have a system free from computer virii, we cannot legally guarantee that GamerPro64 will resist hypothetical bribes offered by the KGB/NSA/MI6 to reveal your secrets, and we cannot legally guarantee that GamerPro64 will make no mistakes.

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited War in Afghanistan (2001–14), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Pashtun.

Copying within Wikipedia requires proper attributionEdit

  Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you copied or moved text from United States invasion of Afghanistan into War in Afghanistan (2001–14). While you are welcome to re-use Wikipedia's content, here or elsewhere, Wikipedia's licensing does require that you provide attribution to the original contributor(s). When copying within Wikipedia, this is supplied at minimum in an edit summary at the page into which you've copied content. It is good practice, especially if copying is extensive, to also place a properly formatted {{copied}} template on the talk pages of the source and destination. The attribution has been provided for this situation, but if you have copied material between pages before, even if it was a long time ago, please provide attribution for that duplication. You can read more about the procedure and the reasons at Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia. Thank you. --Diannaa (talk) 14:37, 16 December 2015 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Vincent Ryan (criminal)Edit

 

The article Vincent Ryan (criminal) has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, this biography of a living person will be deleted unless it has at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within seven days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. Laber□T 17:25, 18 April 2016 (UTC)

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

Hello, I noticed that you recently created a new page, Gavin Jennings (broadcaster). First, thank you for your contribution; Wikipedia relies solely on the efforts of volunteers such as you. Unfortunately, the page you created covers a topic on which we already have a page – Gavin Jennings. Because of the duplication, your article has been tagged for speedy deletion. Please note that this is not a comment on you personally and we hope you will continue helping to improve Wikipedia. If the topic of the article you created is one that interests you, then perhaps you would like to help out at Gavin Jennings – you might like to discuss new information at the article's talk page.

If you think the article you created should remain separate, 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 removed 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, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here. Additionally if you would like to have someone review articles you create before they go live so they are not nominated for deletion shortly after you post them, allow me to suggest the article creation process and using our search feature to find related information we already have in the encyclopedia. Try not to be discouraged. Wikipedia looks forward to your future contributions. Wgolf (talk) 01:17, 30 September 2016 (UTC)

March 2017 Paris attacks/March 2017 Grasse shootingEdit

Hello. I noticed you created March 2017 Paris attacks, and I was wondering if you wanted to create March 2017 Grasse shooting about this? Or, should we rename the article you created to add the Grasse event too?Zigzig20s (talk) 19:18, 18 March 2017 (UTC)

Ways to improve Bronx Lebanon Hospital attackEdit

Hi, I'm Chris troutman. Lottolads, thanks for creating Bronx Lebanon Hospital attack!

I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix. I think this article violates WP:NOTNEWS.

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse.

If you don't indicate the copyright status of the image on the image's description page, using an appropriate copyright tag, it may be deleted some time after the next seven days. If you made this image yourself, you can use copyright tags like {{PD-self}} (to release all rights), {{self|CC-by-sa-3.0|GFDL}} (to require that you be credited), or any tag here - just go to the image, click edit, and add one of those.

Blanking and copy/Paste movesEdit

Hello. You are not a newbie editor, so I am slightly loathe to make such obvious observations, but in:

  • this edit you completely blanked a section which was otherwise supported by reliable and verifiable references. You provided absolutely no explanation for this blanking. Please do not remove content from pages without giving a valid reason for the removal in an edit summary. Your content removal does not appear to have been constructive. And I have reverted it. If you have a reason for proposing the blanking, of cited content, then please raise it on the relevant talk page.
  • this edit you completely blanked an entire article. As above, you provided no explanation for this blanking. Either in an edit summary or otherwise. If the rationale for this action was to move the content to a different title (by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into another page with a different name), then this is against policy. This is known as a "cut-and-paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is legally required for attribution. If you have a reason for proposing a page move, then please raise it on the relevant talk pages.

March 2019Edit

  Please refrain from making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia, as you did at County Londonderry. Your edits appear to constitute vandalism and have been reverted. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. Repeated vandalism may result in the loss of editing privileges. Thank you. Declangi (talk) 19:42, 17 March 2019 (UTC)

  Please do not add or change content, as you did at 2019 Utrecht shooting, without citing a reliable source. Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources and take this opportunity to add references to the article. Thank you. Gaia Octavia Agrippa Talk 14:01, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

  Please stop adding unsourced content, as you did on 2019 Utrecht shooting. This violates Wikipedia's policy on verifiability. If you continue to do so, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. Gaia Octavia Agrippa Talk 14:10, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

  You may be blocked from editing without further warning the next time you vandalize Wikipedia, as you did at 2019 Utrecht shooting. Stop adding a name to article (as per WP:BLPCRIME), and stop adding badly sourced information about a court case. This is your last warning. Your edits are not constructive. Gaia Octavia Agrippa Talk 14:22, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

2019 Utrecht shootingEdit

Ireland as a middle powerEdit

Hello. I reverted your addition of Ireland to middle power as you did not include a source. Whilst Ireland may belong on the list, all the other countries there have at least one reference. You're welcome to re-add Ireland provided you also include a reliable source for the information. Thanks. BlackcurrantTea (talk) 08:22, 23 June 2019 (UTC)
