Bland Operatic School PA (centralized educational sound system)Edit

You had put in a recommendation for deletion of this article. I now already heavily triage any effort I put into wikipedia after the deletion of the Rola Loudspeaker co article some years ago. Now this was seen as a totally obscure, un-notable brand of loudspeaker, by those proposing it's deletion. However infact Rola was the greatest manufacturer of loudspeakers in Australia for many decades. And it would be easy to say that Rola is still Australia's most notable loudspeaker. They made the loose speaker drivers and the purchaser would put them into the equipment they were making. I think most radios, TVs, stereos, radiograms ect made from 1945 to 1975 had Rola speakers inside.

The wiki code from Rola Speaker co I had not saved but it may still be in Wikipedia's archive. It didn't turn up in Deletionpedia and I think it predated their time window. Actually Rola still is quite a hole in Wikipedia coverage that still hasn't been filled. It is something that goes through your mind "should I write this article or add this contribution". I now would only redo Rola with the old code available. The problem of lack of the original archive (through various hard drive failures) exists in some of my other projects - and does impact one's ability to renew such projects.

I am now reviewing my work with Wikipedia and other projects, to evaluate where I should really spend my effort. Photo upload from my own archive to wikimedia commons is another activity I am pursuing cautiously. All the best. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Teknikingman (talkcontribs) 09:42, 19 October 2019 (UTC)

Interview with Jewish ExponentEdit

Hello,

My name is Eric Schucht and I'm a reporter for the Jewish Exponent in Philadelphia. I'm writing an article on the history behind the Wikipedia page on the History of the Jews in Philadelphia. I saw that you made some major edits to the page a while back and I was wondering if you'd be willing to talk to me about why you decided to add to the page, what exactly you added and what lead you to edit Wikipedia pages in general. Please feel free to email me if you're interested.

Thank you,

Eric Schucht eschucht@jewishexponent.com

PotkuEdit

You recently proposed the article Potku for deletion. As it happens, Potku is a real line of ready-to-eat meals, but an obsolete one. Its production was stopped in 2010. For all I care, the article could be deleted straight away. Am I allowed to do that? JIP | Talk 22:41, 6 September 2019 (UTC)

Hi @JIP:. Ordinary editors like ourselves don’t have the authority to zap articles on our own. The proposed deletion process allows other editors time to try to find reliable sources to save an article or argue some reason why it should be kept. After a week if nobody had come up with anything, the article will go. After a week has passed the assumption is that there’s a consensus among editors to delete. All the best Mccapra (talk) 04:44, 7 September 2019 (UTC)

September 2019Edit

  I noticed that you tagged Pro7 (Dj/Producer) with {{prod blp}} for proposed deletion. I have removed the tag from the article because it does not meet the criteria specified. The placement requirements are (a) that subject is living, and (b) that the article contains no sources in any form (as references, external links, etc., reliable or otherwise) supporting any statements made about the person in the biography. Please fully read Wikipedia:Proposed deletion of biographies of living people before tagging articles for proposed deletion. Thank you. Adam9007 (talk) 23:10, 18 September 2019 (UTC)

De-orphaningEdit

Sorry for coming to your talk page with such an apparently grumpy note, but while I do appreciate all the good work that you do, I was nonetheless hoping you would have stopped making edits like this a long time ago. This is an article about a province (in which there are tens of thousands of populated places) and you've added a section that only lists the one village you were trying to de-orphan. I hope you'll appreciate this is not such a good idea. This applies to lower-level administrative areas as well: districts and tehsils are still pretty big; even the smallest tehsils have at least several dozen villages in them. There's no point picking one village and sticking it into the "See also" section of the tehsil article. If there's no sensible way to link to an article, it really is better for such an article to remain an orphan. – Uanfala (talk) 10:50, 23 September 2019 (UTC)

Hi @Uanfala: thanks for your message and don’t worry about being grumpy; I’m fairly grumpy myself. I understand your point but I have a fundamental disagreement with you about orphans. For geographical orphans I always look for the smallest unit above the subject of the article and I believe that adding towns and villages to a tehsil or taluk is absolutely the right thing to do.

I would not usually attach a single village to a province, but having looked hard for anywhere else to link it, I could not find any information about a relevant local government unit. The link that has annoyed you is definitely not optimal, but what I am seeking to do is bring more user eyes onto the article about the village, so that it may be developed and time linked to something more relevant.

Where I fundamentally disagree with you is that such articles are better off left as orphans. For me no article is better as an orphan. If it is not linked to something else it is in many cases useless. Almost amy link is preferable to orphan status, and there are really very few articles which seem to me just impossible to deorphan.

Over time as the encyclopaedia develops, and more articles are written, it will be easier to link these orphans to something more immediately relevant. However for the time being my view is that the kludge of a link to a tangentially related article is better as it may stimulate other editors to create intermediate links.

The AfroCine Project welcomes you to October, the first out of the two months which have been dedicated to creating and improving content that centre around the cinema of Africa, the Caribbean, and the diaspora. Join us in this global edit-a-thon, by helping to create or expand articles which are connected to this scope. Also remember to list your name under the participants section.

On English Wikipedia, we would be recognizing participants in the following manner:

  • Overall winner (1st, 2nd, 3rd places)
  • Diversity winner
  • Gender-gap fillers
For further information about the contest, the recognition categories and how to participate, please visit the contest page here. For further inquiries, please leave comments on the contest talkpage or on the main project talkpage. See you around :).--Jamie Tubers (talk) 00:50, 30 September 2019 (UTC)

Troubled International Relations Lecture Series PageEdit

Hello Mccapra, Thank you very much. Yes, if this article is moved to draft I would very much like your assistance. I had no idea when I began this article how difficult the research would be. It will take many more hours of research to chase down information about historical figures involved with this topic. Some records about these people, and the lectures, probably no longer exist. This page is "a gathering up" of what facts I can find. Which, I hope to put into a cohesive article using headings Summary, Mission, History, and a table such as the one on the Charles Elliot Norton Lectures page. PatriciaBishop (talk) 21:54, 30 September 2019 (UTC)

Hi @PatriciaBishop: that’s great. I hope you have a draft of your own safe somewhere. Articles for Deletion can be a pretty bruising place. I’m in London and travelling tomorrow but I’ll keep an eye on the discussion and get back in touch with some suggestions in a few days. All the best. Mccapra (talk) 22:34, 30 September 2019 (UTC)

AFDEdit

By the time I saw your question, the AFD you mentioned had been added to the daylog by a bot, and the one directly below it was caught by the same bot at the same time. It's just a bug that occasionally happens, where Twinkle doesn't actually complete all the steps it's supposed to for some reason — but it's not anything you did wrong or could have done differently, it's just technology behaving weirdly as technology sometimes does.

removed deletion nomination from List of bakemono featured in Bakemono no eEdit

Hi, you removed my deletion nomination from List of bakemono featured in Bakemono no e, saying it should be a move or a merge discussion. I already moved the list to Bakemono no e (where it originally came from). Should I retroactively start a merge discussion? Rachel Helps (BYU) (talk) 22:10, 14 October 2019 (UTC)

hi thanks for your note. I’m afraid I didn’t understand that you had already added the list content into the main article so apologies that was my mistake. As we don’t need the list article any more I agree it can be deleted. Unfortunately as I’ve contested the Proposed Deletion it can’t go that route again, so it will have to go to Articles for Deletion. Do you know how to do that or would you like me to do it?

Hi, please note that a prod cannot be replaced as per WP:PROD. Also the band clearly pass WP:GNG with the reviews in the review section, regards Atlantic306 (talk) 16:51, 6 November 2019 (UTC)

I’m sorry, my mistake. I didn’t realise I’d prodded the same article twice. Thanks for pointing it out. Mccapra (talk) 21:43, 6 November 2019 (UTC)

November 2019Edit

  Please refrain from making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia, as you did at Moobol. Your edits appear to be disruptive and have been or will be reverted.

Please ensure you are familiar with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines, and please do not continue to make edits that appear disruptive. Continued disruptive editing may result in loss of editing privileges. It is nothing less than plain disruptive to go around WP:PRODing an article that has a reference section and claiming it is unsourced withotu reason. There are various tags, such as requiring inline citations that may be appropriate but I am very concerned either WP:PRODNOM was not followed like claimed or the article not examined closely. Thankyou Djm-leighpark (talk) 11:36, 8 November 2019 (UTC)

  • @Djm-leighpark: Thanks for your message. I've removed the PROD tag because as you rightly say there is no basis for it since the article clearly has sources. I don't know what I thought I was doing but evidently working too late in the evening or just not paying enough attention. Thanks for pointing it out. Mccapra (talk) 11:57, 8 November 2019 (UTC)
  • You think you make mistakes ... just follow me! ... I make some absolute whoppers. But the admission of the mistake and the removal of the PROD does you honour, and I confess I too missed that Reference section on first glance was was wandering into pages of various Chinese writings hoping google translate would be my friend. Thankyou. Djm-leighpark (talk) 12:06, 8 November 2019 (UTC)
  • I look at that edit and just wonder how on earth I managed to miss an entire ref section. Quite scary really. Mccapra (talk) 12:37, 8 November 2019 (UTC)

The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to impose binding solutions to disputes between editors, primarily for serious conduct disputes the community has been unable to resolve.

The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail.
