Jurist

"Jurist" implies legal academic scholarship. Absent indications of this, it is best to avoid using this to describe a person. For members of the judiciary, the more easily recognizable term for readers would be "judge". bd2412 T 02:23, 25 December 2018 (UTC)

Page Mana Ayukawa should not be deleted - explanation

Related to Wikipedia source Most wanted articles, I found in that list Mana Ayukawa what was mentioned 89 times in various sources, thus I decided to start writing her biography, spending 2 hours for research, because are not so many sources on the internet about her, but she is considered and she is really a famous tennis player, about whom I consider should be written in Wikipedia. For me doesn't matter will be this article deleted or not, I only want to contribute to Wikipedia and make all possible for this. Hope I explain the reason why we should improve this page and do not delete. All the best! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Trymemore (talkcontribs) 06:20, 19 April 2019 (UTC)

Just because it has 89 links in Wikipedia does not make one notable. FoxyGrampa75 (talk) 01:31, 24 April 2019 (UTC)

French Europoliticians

Thanks for all your stubs. Great to have them all on Wikipedia. Let's hope someone will come along and flush them out a bit.--Ipigott (talk) 14:08, 3 June 2019 (UTC)

@Ipigott: It was very great. I'm gonna go create the rest of the other MEPs in the other countries. FoxyGrampa75 (talk) 21:57, 3 June 2019 (UTC)

MEPs

Hi! I see you are making the articles/stubs of MEPs. It's okay but can you please at least check if a given MEP was already a member? Examples: Asim Ademov, Geoffroy Didier, Eleonora Evi, Javi López Fernández. You can look after them on the website of the EP, as the 8th term ends this month. :-) Thanks, Cassandro (talk) 06:35, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

Sockpuppets

There's very little point to reporting sockpuppets who are already blocked, except for chewing up 10 minutes of my time dealing with the reports. Cabayi (talk) 17:30, 28 June 2019 (UTC)

@Cabayi: My bad. Even though my evidence linking two sockpuppeteers seemed legit to me, at the end of the day I seem to have overreacted. FoxyGrampa75 (talk) 17:32, 28 June 2019 (UTC)
In Special:Preferences under the gadgets tab is an option ("Strike out usernames that have been blocked") to mark users who have been blocked so you can see them more easily. The Navigation popups gadget also shows them when you hover over the username (if it's linked). Hope that helps, Cabayi (talk) 17:37, 28 June 2019 (UTC)
@Cabayi: Done. I went on the page and it seems to be working. FoxyGrampa75 (talk) 17:38, 28 June 2019 (UTC)

dan hicks AND HIS HOT LICKS

The article's about Hicks. I think you position is pedantic, hardly worth even the time spent typing this. Tapered (talk) 00:29, 29 June 2019 (UTC)

@Tapered: While the article is about the singer, I reverted the edit because the NYT article mentioned the band's entire name and there is no enwiki article about the band. So why not consider creating an article about that band instead? FoxyGrampa75 (talk) 00:32, 29 June 2019 (UTC)
I think more development about the band in this article, especially a Singles discography, would be at least as good. It was Hicks' only real 'big-time' achievement. There is an article on violinist Sid Page, but Hicks wrote the songs, was driving force, and broke it up all by himself. That's my point.
E voila! I'm going to rephrase the sentence to something like, "his recordings with the Hot Licks." Tapered (talk) 00:45, 29 June 2019 (UTC)
@Tapered: Thank you. Now if you need me, I'm gonna be very busy with something. FoxyGrampa75 (talk) 00:46, 29 June 2019 (UTC)

Date formats

Hello, thanks for your edits about the 2008 Universal fire. However, date formats in refs should be the same as those in articles; for example, I've made this edit to your change on the Benny Goodman article, and I've also made a similar change at Joni Mitchell. Graham87 02:42, 29 June 2019 (UTC)

@Graham87: You're welcome. I use an assembly-line method for many of my edit projects, so things can be a little off. FoxyGrampa75 (talk) 02:43, 29 June 2019 (UTC)

Assembly Line Editing Style

How about slowing down your assembly line and take the time to get things right so other editors don't have to go behind you and clean up your messes.

Thank you very kindly 2600:1700:3BC0:E70:D5A9:D14C:85A9:CBF7 (talk) 13:54, 29 June 2019 (UTC)

{{re|2600:1700:3BC0:E70:D5A9:D14C:85A9:CBF7]} You're welcome. I made several of the edits before someone informed me of the mistake.

In addition to the date format being incorrect for articles that use the d/m/y style of date, you keep referring to 'material' being destroyed. 'Material' is commonly understood (and is defined as such in the dictionary) as compositions/songs/repertoire. What was destroyed in the fire was tapes, i.e. specific recordings of that material. Dubmill (talk) 11:46, 30 June 2019 (UTC)

Universal fire

Hello - I saw you were adding information about the Universal fire to the pages of artists who had been affected by it. Did you happen to notice any artists mentioned by Rosen that did not have articles on Wikipedia? I may be interested in writing articles for them if so. Chubbles (talk) 14:28, 30 June 2019 (UTC)

@Chubbles: There are twelve of them (some of them might have articles but I didn't bother to disambig them):
  • Jimmy Anderson
  • Don Bennett
  • Don Cherry
  • Colours
  • Crazy Otto
  • Richard Davis
  • Paul Evans
  • Beverly Jenkins
  • Vega Brothers
  • Michael White
  • Whycliffe
  • Walter Winchell
Hope this is useful. FoxyGrampa75 (talk) 16:25, 30 June 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up

You and Bearcat notified me concerned the Abbie Hodgson AfD that any editor can only vote once in an AfD. I didn't know what the rules were, had no intent of "double voting," and had only seen others do so, so didn't realize it was a problem. I will respond to comments without voting. Also, I have seen others who changed their votes. I presume that is acceptable (I've never had occasion to do so) but I expect that might require going back to manually change the original vote without voting again in the opposite way. Is that the convention, or do you know? Thanks. Activist (talk) 18:39, 30 August 2019 (UTC)

AfD Protocol

Hi, I noticed that you nominated a number of fictional character articles for AfD in good faith. However, you should be aware of certain procedures for AfD that you neglected to do, that would make things much easier for AfD commenters.

First of all, if characters have the same issue and are in the same series, a WP:MULTIAFD must be used. This prevents people from having to copy paste the same vote, and argue the same thing over many different AfD pages.

Also, a rationale needs to be included even if it was already stated in a PROD. Preferably something a bit more detailed than "it's just not notable", like "I searched for sources and came up with nothing".

It would be helpful if you addressed that for your current nominations as well, not sure what the procedure is, but perhaps speedy delete all the deletion pages besides one.ZXCVBNM (TALK) 12:23, 2 September 2019 (UTC)

Hi there,

I noticed that you removed almost all of the content from Edward Grady Partin due to copyright infringement. Thanks for catching it. However, I noticed that you removed the categories as well as the content.

Francis Xavier Ransdell

Just a heads-up, I'm actually pretty sure that your initial guess about the creator of Francis Xavier Ransdell, in your nomination statement at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Francis Xavier Ransdell was actually correct — it would most likely be impossible to definitively prove it now, but there's a lot of circumstantial evidence that Gulfstream411 actually was a sockpuppet of exactly the user you first suspected. I've explained the evidence in my comment on the AFD discussion. Bearcat (talk) 15:33, 6 October 2019 (UTC)

So were you referring to discussion of portals in general? I see an average of 121 views in the third quarter of 2019, which is better than most portals. I do not plan to nominate the portal for deletion, at least not at this time. Also, I think that the subpage you were looking at is an orphaned subpage, because the portal appears to have been converted to single-page. Robert McClenon (talk) 20:12, 21 October 2019 (UTC)

Herald/Harbinger

Hello! I think your close at Herald/Harbinger is inappropriate. Why are you closing an AFD that received two keeps, two merges and a delete vote? There's not clear concensus, so you should not be doing a non-admin close. I'd ask that you revert your close and let an admin close it. Thanks. ThatMontrealIP (talk) 22:53, 24 October 2019 (UTC)

@ThatMontrealIP:. I thought it looked like the consensus had devolved away from a keep, but I've undid the close. Should the AFD be relisted? ミラP 23:29, 24 October 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for fixing that. To me it is clearly no consensus, and in cases like this is is not appropriate to do a WP:NAC, per the guidelines there. Regarding relisting, I think it can be closed by an admin, so I would just leave it. ThatMontrealIP (talk) 23:32, 24 October 2019 (UTC)

Hello, and thanks for nominating Kiuchi Kyō ‎for DYK. Just wondering: are you fluent in Japanese?

Universal fire victims

Hi! I'm a bit late to this perhaps, but I've been noticing you put the useful sentence "On June 25, 2019, The New York Times Magazine listed XXX among hundreds of artists whose material was reportedly destroyed in the 2008 Universal fire" in many articles. Might I suggest that it would be better if each of these was terser? It's mostly irrelevant that the Times reported this, and it's mostly irrelevant that it was reported on June 25. "Reportedly" makes me wonder if there's some uncertainty as to whether it was actually destroyed. Were it me, I'd have phrased it as "XXX was among hundreds of artists whose material was destroyed in the 2008 Universal fire." I'd guess you did this in a semi-automated fashion; I wonder if you'd consider making a bulk edit to tighten this. Thanks for your consideration. --jpgordon𝄢𝄆 𝄐𝄇 05:24, 27 November 2019 (UTC)

@Jpgordon: Not much time to do it, but I should point out I added "listed" and "reportedly" to clarify the fact that it was listed there at all, and added "New York Times Magazine listed" to make it look neutral. ミラP 14:01, 27 November 2019 (UTC)
How can it be non-neutral? It's a fact the stuff was destroyed; it doesn't matter in the least who reported it. --jpgordon𝄢𝄆 𝄐𝄇 17:23, 27 November 2019 (UTC)

Judge Dredd articles

It's premature to delete or redirect articles before the 7 days are up, even if you think that will be the eventual outcome. People are entitled to the full time to object to the removal of prodded articles if they want to. Richard75 (talk) 23:29, 28 November 2019 (UTC)

I don't agree that these are valid redirect yet -- they may well be, but that isn't the point. Another user prodded then for deletion, and by redirecting them so soon you didn't respect the process. I appreciate that they can't be prodded again, but with the greatest respect, you should have thought of that. Your remedy now is to nominate them for AfD.

@J947: Oh, my mistake. But there was a keep vote after the relist. ミラP 16:46, 2 December 2019 (UTC)
Funny I was bothered by the out of policy relist there too - given that there was a keep vote I felt compelled to relist again, though I would suggest the ends don't justify the means. I then found Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Jennifer Akiniymika. Your relisting statement is again incorrect (we don't need any !votes to decide what to do ) and that article to would have been eligible for soft delete. This one had two subsequent delete !votes so I went ahead and closed it, in keeping with policy, as a delete. If you are going to relist discussions (and know that I am on the record as disliking this long before I became a sysop myself) I would ask that you need to better familiarize yourself with appropriate policy. I would also ask that you give thought to relist bias and consider abstaining from relist until you decide to go for RfA (which based on your userbox seems unlikely and fair enough). Best, Barkeep49 (talk) 01:57, 10 December 2019 (UTC)
@Barkeep49: Well another solution would be to ask the closing admin to disregard the votes that are problematic. And yes, I'm considering adminship but I'm not in a convenient position to do that. ミラP 22:19, 13 December 2019 (UTC)

edits to my talk page

Hello Miraclepine, I am confused by this edit [3] that was made to my talk page to remove a notification by Ladislav Mecir. I am wondering if your edit complies with policy, I dont see anything in DENY that permits you to delete content on other users talk pages. I dont think I have ever interacted with you, can you please explain what is going on? Is there some sort of dispute with Ladislav that I am not aware of and am tangentially involved in (why else would my talk page be edited...)? Jtbobwaysf (talk) 04:28, 19 December 2019 (UTC)

Hi Miraclepine, I noticed the same thing on other editors' talk pages on my watchlist and also came here to ask you about it. WP:DENY is about vandalism, not canvassing. Nothing in DENY suggests to me that it's acceptable to remove talk page posts that are or may be canvassing; canvassing isn't mentioned on the page. Also, DENY is an essay, not a policy. Nothing in the WP:CANVASS guideline suggests that it's OK to remove canvassing posts, either. The WP:TPO guideline says The basic rule—with exceptions outlined below—is to not edit or delete others' posts without their permission, and canvassing isn't mentioned as an exception. I'd ask you to consider self-reverting. Levivich 05:40, 19 December 2019 (UTC)
@Levivich: It seemed disruptive to me because some of the editors seemed random, and some of the editors with less edits seemed connected with the article. Besides @Certes: already explained that they made only a minor edit and that it's not usual to notify everyone who's done something like fixing a ref title. ミラP 22:01, 20 December 2019 (UTC)

Helene Walker

Thanks for the prompt for a reference for her MBE. I've found the award in the London Gazette; it appears to be from the 1946 Birthday Honours, but she isn't mentioned in our article on those awards. Warofdreams talk 14:00, 23 December 2019 (UTC)

@Warofdreams: Just checked, and it appears to be a second supplement of the 1946 Birthday Honours that wasn't posted to that article. It's from pages 3119 to 3148 of The London Gazette issue 37617. ミラP 15:42, 23 December 2019 (UTC)

WP:SOFTDELETE reminder

Please remember that discussions like Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Michael Berke are eligible for soft deletion; the nomination counts as a !vote.

Comment was at 00:51 UTC on Christmas Eve; sig: Happy Festivities! // J947 (c)
@J947: Apologies for being slow to respond. My opinion is that whether or not a relist is necessary depends on multiple factors, particularly whether or not it meets WP:N or if there's any indication of WP:BEFORE. I saw that both issues leaned towards a side that favored a relist (WP:IDL-ish AFD motive, the other vote being an WP:ATA fail, and no indication of BEFORE), so I proceeded with it. After that, I voted keep on the grounds that WP:GNG was satisfied. So that's that. ミラP 04:36, 28 December 2019 (UTC)
It's best to leave it always because admins have an option. The best thing to do is !vote yourself in those circumstances. Happy Festivities! // J947 (c) 04:50, 28 December 2019 (UTC)

  Damon Runyon's short story "Dancing Dan's Christmas" is a fun read if you have the time. Right from the start it extols the virtues of the hot Tom and Jerry

This hot Tom and Jerry is an old-time drink that is once used by one and all in this country to celebrate Christmas with, and in fact it is once so popular that many people think Christmas is invented only to furnish an excuse for hot Tom and Jerry, although of course this is by no means true.

No matter what concoction is your favorite to imbibe during this festive season I would like to toast you with it and to thank you for all your work here at the 'pedia this past year. Best wishes for your 2020 as well M. MarnetteD|Talk 03:22, 25 December 2019 (UTC)

  A Shaker Christmas wish
Give good gifts, one to another
Peace, joy and comfort gladly bestow
Harbor no ill 'gainst sister or brother
Smooth life's journey as you onward go.
Broad as the sunshine, free as the showers.
So shed an influence blessing to prove;
Give for the noblest of efforts your pow'rs;
Blest and be blest, is the law of love.

Articles for Deletion

Hi, I see that you took part in a discussion of the proposed deletion for an article on Frederick Goold in August 2018, and the result at the time was "no consensus". I am just letting you know that I have renominated this article for deletion here.[4]. I am contacting all contributors to that discussion to see if you wish to comment again. In my view, the additional sources provided at the time did nothing to establish notability as definied by WP. I have also proposed two others for deletion for the same reason here [5] and here [6].

@Bondegezou: I'm going to tell you straight up; I have no clue who Miraclepine is and am only following his page because we both entered the WikiCup. I'm telling you this not because I like Miraclepine personally or anything like that. He has no clue who I am, and I don't really even know him.
On 30 December 2019, Miraclepine edited a multitude of articles that he had never edited before. All your interactions can be simply explained by the fact you both have a keen interest in British politicians. If you have a single example outside that topic field where you found yourself interacting with Miraclepine, then your accusation would carry a lot more weight. Case in point, these were Miraclepine's last three edits before editing Dominic Shellard: 1, 2, and 3. –MJLTalk 17:40, 1 January 2020 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of Squidbillies characters

Why did you close this AfD as Keep? I don't have a personal stake in this article, but it does not seem like a clear Keep to me. I believe this should be reopened and relisted. Natg 19 (talk) 00:06, 8 January 2020 (UTC)

I see your rationale, but from the discussion, there were 2 delete !votes and !keep votes, so I don't think this should have been closed as Keep in the first place. Additionally, none of the delete !votes seemed interested in a merge. Natg 19 (talk) 00:16, 8 January 2020 (UTC)
