COI commentsEdit


Thanks for writing me, NJA. I guess I don't understand who is supposed to update our company's page if not someone who works for the company. We wouldn't want anyone else editing our information.

Media in ThailandEdit


As you accepted Thaigers advert link for media and ThaiVisa has been around longer and has more traffic per month and also is a partner of the nation multimedia, i would have thought it was a valid link.

Please note that i look after the major telcom and media outlets in Thailand so I will be contributing more now.

Thank you in advance for allowing me to re-add the correct media chanels to Wikipedia to make this more factual. — Preceding unsigned comment added by TwoBitDoctor (talkcontribs) 08:14, 26 September 2019 (UTC)

@TwoBitDoctor: you must be aware of the conflicts policy and a requirement to WP:DISCLOSE publicly, per WP:PAID (if applicable). This does not mean someone else may not question the edits, but I think in regard to the single edit you’re speaking of that that website seems okay on reconsideration, N.J.A. | talk 10:09, 26 September 2019 (UTC)
Yes aware, hence i only edited the link to be more accurate with the top media.
Thanks for understanding. — Preceding unsigned comment added by TwoBitDoctor (talkcontribs) 14:53, 26 September 2019 (UTC)


I created this account as a new bot account. A BRFA will follow shortly. In the meantime, would you mind unblocking? Thanks. Hawkeye7 (discuss) 02:17, 27 September 2019 (UTC)

Done. Sorry. Though had you created the new account is using your present account it would have tied the name in the logs and made things a bit easier, N.J.A. | talk 11:14, 27 September 2019 (UTC)

Das Kriechtier (creation/page)Edit

See, I'm not generally popular, so I decided to make myself a page - everything on the page is fact and biased or enhanced in any way. I'd rather be editing a page about me myself.

I'm new with Wikipedia, not using it, but editing. It'd be nice if I could remove "Draft" from the page title, but I guess I have to wait.

As for the "• if you've come to reply to a comment I've left on a talk page, then reply there and ping me." bit, I honestly don't know how. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Daskriechtierofficial (talkcontribs) 14:49, 29 September 2019 (UTC)

Block questionEdit

Hi! Quick question, who do you think OofenshmirtzEvilIncorporated is? Bradv pinged me to check them after they requested an unblock on IRC, and I don't see any accounts other than the ones in their account creation log. The CU log for the IP they were on also doesn't suggest them being an LTA, and given the ISP, I think the log would be pretty accurate historically. TonyBallioni (talk) 01:01, 1 October 2019 (UTC)

Hi Tony. I cannot recall, but there must have been something happening around that time that I attributed to that account for me to disallow talk page access. I have tried to recall the factors of the situation and all I can see is the filter log hits. Checking the block log for around the same time has not provided more clues. I could have a further look at logs leading up to this for perhaps more clues, but it may easier to give the user another chance since you have after all looked at it, N.J.A. | talk 01:26, 1 October 2019 (UTC)
No problem. Yeah, it's probably worth restoring TPA at the least . The username is a bit trolly, but I don't think they're an LTA based on the CU data. TonyBallioni (talk) 01:29, 1 October 2019 (UTC)
Thanks NJA and TonyBallioni. I've restored talk page access now so they can appeal. – bradv🍁 01:39, 1 October 2019 (UTC)

Hi NJA. The IP is back with unsourced genre after the block is expired. Can you block for three months? 2402:1980:8249:A532:E35B:3739:A1AC:B0DC (talk) 13:47, 6 October 2019 (UTC)

Reversion at Circumstellar habitable zoneEdit

Hi NJA, why did you do this, the user has a weird username but the two edits are constructive. Cheers Polyamorph (talk) 10:47, 9 October 2019 (UTC)

They are globally banned. I reverted their edit as although perhaps adding a bit of information, it was the sort of edits a new account makes to allow them to be considered auto confirmed to then edit semi-protected pages. If there’s a source for the change you may reinstate without asking me about it, N.J.A. | talk 10:49, 9 October 2019 (UTC)
OK, thanks for letting me know. Cheers, Polyamorph (talk) 11:12, 9 October 2019 (UTC)

Need help with Patrick Fiori's Wikipedia Page PleaseEdit

Hey, could you help me with Patrick Fiori's Wikipedia page? I think someone from the Philippines vandalized Patrick's page and added a bunch of Filipino stuff that Patrick never did. I tried to fix it but I think I accidentally took out a few things in the singles table and forgot what was there before. Here's the page:

If anything, I think there should be a page protection to keep this from happening again. This isn't good, and I wish to keep it as accurate as the French Wikipedia page has it for Patrick Fiori. Anything you can do will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hajiru (talk) 16:12, 10 October 2019 (UTC)Hajiru

Hi. I've looked at the page's history and I do not see any serious issues at present that would indicate a need for protection under the policy. If that changes requests for protection can be made at WP:RFPP, N.J.A. | talk 16:59, 10 October 2019 (UTC)

If you go back a bit further before my edits, someone made weird edits by adding random names from Filipino actors, added that Patrick supposedly lived in Philippines, claimed he could sing and release music in Filipino, etc. I hope that made sense. Hajiru (talk) 17:11, 10 October 2019 (UTC)Hajiru

Hi, you may wish to review the policy in terms of when protection is warranted. There is not, at present, serious or ongoing issues that require protection. What you're doing, i.e. copy editing and explaining your changes in edit summaries and use of talk pages is the proper course of action at this time. Again, if the situation changes or escalates, list the page at WP:RFPP, N.J.A. | talk 17:14, 10 October 2019 (UTC)

I understand. Sorry for bothering you. I was just frustrated that someone would put false information that made no sense for that singer. Sorry for the trouble. Hajiru (talk) 17:16, 10 October 2019 (UTC)

No trouble and thanks for bringing it up. I'll keep an eye if possible. All the best, N.J.A. | talk 17:17, 10 October 2019 (UTC)

You're welcome. Sounds good. Thanks for your assistance. Hajiru (talk) 17:18, 10 October 2019 (UTC)

Hey, I've noticed that there seems to still be some people messing with Patrick Fiori's page. Someone must really believe that Patrick Fiori is a singer and actor from the Philippines when he is NOT. Patrick is from France and has Armenian and Corsican ancestry. Even the other Wikipedias have this. Is there really someone out there that looks like Patrick, or is this some weird troll who won't stop? I'm so confused by all of this. O_o What is your opinion on all of this?

Blocking User:DutchBotEdit

What a weird way to deal with contributors from other wiki’s to block them without the account being active on this wiki. I made the account to use as a botaccount on nl wiki. Shame on you for not investigating. DutchTom (talk) 01:23, 18 October 2019 (UTC)

Let us just chill out with the outrage. I cannot run detailed checks on every “bot” name created and even if I did in this case they still are not compliant with policy nor can I see evidence they’ve sought bot approval. The user can request unblock on their page using the instructions thereon to explain their situation. This is not the place, N.J.A. | talk 01:29, 18 October 2019 (UTC)
On nl wiki it is not required to ask for a botstatus when you make (less then) one automated edit per minute. Besides that, I am in the testing phase. It is required to show the bot works good and does not make mistakes before I could receive the status. It is just very very weird you block a global user with zero edits. I've never seen that before. Must be some kind of en wiki thing. Very weird. I am a sysop myself on nl wiki, we would never do this. As sysop people have a responsibility to check stuff before blocking. Now there is a blocklog for no freaking reason. DutchTom (talk) 02:10, 18 October 2019 (UTC)
I appreciate your comments but the policies and procedures between ni and en Wiki’s seem to be different. You’ve indicated, but not clearly, you may be the owner of that account. If so, go to its talk page as follow the instructions to sort this out. If you’re not the owner, then leave it for that person to resolve it. I am happy to unblock if you agree to undertake the steps required for approval. Again, the proper page is the blocked user page not here, but whatever, N.J.A. | talk 12:13, 18 October 2019 (UTC)
Whatever. Ugh. Always EN-WP and their sysops with weird policy's and hate to their neighbours. "I cannot run detailed checks on every “bot” name created" the only thing you had to do is look at the CentralAuth page. If that ia too much for you, you are not worth this role. Blocking users is a heavy thing you guys use as sweets. Since there are centralized accounts these automatically account creations happen when clicking an internal link to another wiki. As respected Wikipedian the first welcome you get is a block. And you seem to find it normal... LOL. DutchTom (talk) 01:46, 5 November 2019 (UTC)
I said I’d unblock the account if you (they) made a request on their user talk page. All I asked for was a nod that you’d undertake the steps required for approval. Instead you waited a few weeks to post an insult on my page. Not very “neighbourly”. Please stop posting here and you the talk page of the blocked account, N.J.A. | talk 11:41, 5 November 2019 (UTC)
And even though you failed to actually do anything I kindly requested I’ve unblocked so that you can move on and not do drive-by insults in future. Have fun, but do not run it as an actual bot without following the steps that you’ve been advised of N.J.A. | talk 11:48, 5 November 2019 (UTC)

Edward VIIEdit

Just wandering why my my edits about Caesar the dog were removed

Iwasntallowedemojis (talk) 14:28, 21 October 2019 (UTC)

Because the edits were not written well. If they're relevant at all to the article, then consider the format of the text used to describe the same thing in the article about the dog, N.J.A. | talk 14:43, 21 October 2019 (UTC)

It was a piece of information about the funeral and Caesar isn’t listed anywhere despite the kings fondness towards him Iwasntallowedemojis (talk) 17:07, 21 October 2019 (UTC)

Also may I add that the article you linked agrees with me as it says in the royal life section “ he led the procession with a highland guard behind the carriage”


I see that you have blocked the above EE address range for a week, but unfortunately that means that I am blocked from any editing on Wikipedia whilst using my normal means of access. Is there any chance you could review your block? I am a reasonably prolific editor and disambiguator and am having to pay for the disruption caused by others. Apologies if this is the wrong way to go about requesting an unblock. but I have never been blocked before.

Cnwilliams (talk) 17:57, 21 October 2019 (UTC)

Hi Cnwilliams, I've amended the block which may allow you to edit now while logged in to your already registered account. If this doesn't fix the issue let me know exactly the message you're getting, N.J.A. | talk 18:03, 21 October 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for your help and it seems to be fine now. Cnwilliams (talk) 20:03, 21 October 2019 (UTC)

More stupid spammers vandalizing Patrick Fiori's page yet againEdit

Title says it all. UGH! I'm so fed up with this nonsense! Can't those spammers be blocked permanently or removed from Wikipedia or something? Why in the world are they doing this to Patrick Fiori's page when there already is an actor who has even half of those things being added constantly! My patience with these people has run out. Please do something, even if it's to permanently protect the page from further edits until further notice. Sorry if I sound rude, but I'm just annoyed with these people and just want them to stop already. Why are they doing this? I just don't understand what is happening. I tried my best to revert it back to the way it was before. I'm not sure what else to try. I'm tempted to ask for page protection but I'm not sure yet. Sorry if I bothered you again. Hajiru (talk) 14:33, 9 November 2019 (UTC)Hajiru

Socks are blocked on sight and the page is now semi-protected for some time to see if that assists. Not much more I can suggest at this time, except to remain calm, N.J.A. | talk 13:21, 10 November 2019 (UTC)

I understand, and I agree there's not much else we can do for now. Thank you for your help! :D Hajiru (talk) 14:12, 10 November 2019 (UTC)
