Fatty KooEdit

@MBisanz The Music Group Fatty Koo was deleted in November of 2016 on the grounds that the music group was not a charting group and only had a group website. For starters the individual who filed this motion has been permanently banned from the Wikipedia. According to, Fatty Koo peaked at #64 on the billboard top 100 charts in 2005. On Wikipedia, Fatty Koo is listed on music producer Toby Gad's page as well as R&B Pop Star Miguel's page. They are also on wiki sites such as: Music of Ohio and List of Keys to the City in the United States; Fatty Koo earned the Key to the City of Columbus, OH on May 26, 2005. Please restore this page and allow for proper updates to be made to the band wiki page to reflect their musical achievements. (Briqmedia (talk) 20:56, 4 September 2019 (UTC))

I'm sorry, but you will need to submit a request to WP:AFC or WP:RFU to have the article restored. MBisanz talk 03:44, 29 September 2019 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Files for discussion/2019 June 20# File:Brasileira de Futebol (escudo).svgEdit

Hi Mbisanz. Was wondering if you'd mind taking a look at this IP edit? You closed Wikipedia:Files for discussion/2019 June 20# File:Brasileira de Futebol (escudo).svg as keeping the file in Brazilian Football Confederation and adding it to Brazil national football team. However, after the IP's edit, the file is now orphaned and will end up being deleted per WP:F5 if it's not used somewhere within five days. The IP seems to have made the edit in good faith, but there is no non-free use rationale provided for the national team article which means that the file will likely be removed by a bot or human file reviewer per WP:NFCCE/WP:NFCC#10c.

Just a little background, the first FFD regarding the older files non-free use resulted in a consensus to remove it from the team article; that was overturned by the second FFD, which is fine. However, it's not clear how any of this applies to the new file File:Cbf brazil logo.png uploaded in August. At first it was only added to the article about the confederation so no files were orphaned; now that the IP has added it to the team article as well, the older which was discussed at FFD is going to be deleted. The files look similar but there is a different coloring scheme and the new file is technically uploaded as a separate file (not as an updated version); so, I'm not sure whether the FFD you closed applies to it. There has been quite a bit of contentious discussion regarding not only this, but similar national team badge file use over the years which still hasn't really been resolved. I'm not trying to resolve that here, and your FFD close seemed to resolve the Brazil file's issues. The IP's well-meaning edit, however, may have unintentionally re-opened that particular can of worms. -- Marchjuly (talk) 21:42, 25 September 2019 (UTC)

If the new image looks similar, then I would suggest applying the same outcome from the earlier FFD to the new image. MBisanz talk 03:47, 29 September 2019 (UTC)
Thank you for taking a look. The only differences (in my opinion) are some of the coloring, the size of the border of the inner shield, and the size of the letters "CBF"; for the most part, it's essentially the same badge. Do you think it would be acceptable to add the {{Oldffdfull}} template you added to the file talk page of the no longer used version to the file talk page of the newer version? -- Marchjuly (talk) 05:00, 29 September 2019 (UTC)
Yes, that seems fine. Thanks. MBisanz talk 10:11, 30 September 2019 (UTC)
Hi again MBisanz. The older version was deleted per WP:F5, but the newer version (File:Cbf brazil logo.png) keeps getting removed by a bot because whomever is adding it to Brazil national football team keeps forgetting to add the corresponding non-free use rationale to the file's page. I could add {{Missing rationale2}} to Talk:Brazil national football team, but that won't stop the bot from removing the file. So, I was wondering if you could transfer the non-free use rationale for the team's article from the deleted old version's page to the new version's page. That should resolve the WP:NFCC#10c issue and still be in accordance with your FFD close. -- Marchjuly (talk) 00:42, 16 October 2019 (UTC)

The Signpost: 30 September 2019Edit

Administrators' newsletter – October 2019Edit

News and updates for administrators from the past month (September 2019).

  Guideline and policy news

  • Following a discussion, a new criterion for speedy category renaming was added: C2F: One eponymous article, which applies if the category contains only an eponymous article or media file, provided that the category has not otherwise been emptied shortly before the nomination. The default outcome is an upmerge to the parent categories.

  Technical news

  • As previously noted, tighter password requirements for Administrators were put in place last year. Wikipedia should now alert you if your password is less than 10 characters long and thus too short.



  • The Community Tech team has been working on a system for temporarily watching pages, and welcomes feedback.

John_Mark_DouganEdit was put up for deletion rather hastily in my opinion. Could you point out the steps I can take to appeal that decision. Also there is a policy somewhere (I don't remember where) in which I can request the delete article. Could you send me the delete article please? Thank you in advance. :) Moscowdreams (talk) 22:49, 11 October 2019 (UTC) Moscowdreams (talk) 21:53, 22 October 2019 (UTC)
