you just deleted my page (marked as G11) about Eurooms Ltd.
Could you explain what exactly is promotional? Is it the price list? I just wanted to provide an overview on average price of houseshare in London. Is there anything else I should exclude?
- It wasn't just the price list. The whole thing was written in a promotional tone, with lines like "Providing customers with a professional services was their main goal and today there is not doubt about their success, as Eurooms Ltd. has become a model for others in branch of long term shared housing." Please see WP:NPOV and WP:SPAM. NawlinWiki (talk) 16:30, 1 December 2015 (UTC)
Rochdale Super League (5 Articles) + Rochdale Rugby League Nines (2 Articles)Edit
Hi NawlinWiki, I believe you have deleted 5 articles on the Rochdale Super League, may I ask why this is? I have spent hundreds of hours adding stuff to this page, and it is a disgrace that this has been removed without notification. Can you please post the article on here, so that I can keep it for our records. Regards, Matt
- Let's skip the personal attacks, shall we? I've been off Wikipedia in general for a few days. An amateur sports league and its teams and competitions don't meet our standards for notability, see WP:ATHLETE. NawlinWiki (talk) 20:53, 11 December 2015 (UTC)
- This sports league is a Semi-Pro standard. The players would be disgusted to be known as amateurs.
Hi NawlinWiki, Why did you delete the page about homeautod? Why was it not to your liking? It's an open source project so it's not even commercial! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Coretech69 (talk • contribs) 06:26, 2 December 2015 (UTC)

Hello NawlinWiki, About a year ago, the PhilJets page has been deleted. I would like know how it could be restored, or how a new page could be published. Could you help me on this? It might have been judged not known at the time. Since then, the start up has grown significantly, and aviation lovers would be happy to have info on that growing player in the Philippines. Thank you for your guidance, Ffrjeremyl (talk) 13:51, 15 December 2015 (UTC)Ffjerem — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ffrjeremyl (talk • contribs) 13:48, 15 December 2015 (UTC)
- It looks like you have already added that information to the Thierry Tea page. You do seem to have sources, so it's fine with me if you want to move that information into a separate article on PhilJets. NawlinWiki (talk) 16:54, 16 December 2015 (UTC)
- Thank you for your response. Hence, how to start or move the information? Is it ok if I just create a new PhilJets page?
I noticed that one of your edit summaries at The Elephant Show mentioned sock puppetry and repeated vandalism. Given Scott Irvine's conection to that program and the recent vandalism at the Irvine article, I am wondering if there is a connection. Best.4meter4 (talk) 01:39, 23 December 2015 (UTC)
Deleted YP NextHome wiki pageEdit
Hi Nawlin, I just wrote an wikipedia article on YP NextHome so that visitors could find the rental apartments very easily as I was benefited in the similar way. I noticed that it was deleted as part of advertising & promotional activity. I wrote article which was similar to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BuzzBuzzHome without any intention of promotion. Please let me know what sort of changes you expect me to do so that I could publish the article on wikipedia without violating guidelines.
When you have a momentEdit
Hello N. I saw that you extended the protection on the Hank Goldberg article. Would you please update this on the protection template when you have the time. That will help to remove the article from the Category:Wikipedia pages with incorrect protection templates. Thanks for your time. MarnetteD|Talk 19:17, 28 December 2015 (UTC)
Matt Fax page being deletedEdit
Hi, you just deleted the Matt Fax page, because he's "not an important person". Let me just precise that the man is selling records, is ranking on Beatport Top 100 at almost every releases, is supported by some Top 100 ranked DJs (as wrote in the article) and some of the greatest artists in the music industry. Could you please explain why you disabled the page ? Thanks. Nkwn (talk) 16:57, 4 January 2016 (UTC) nkwni (talk) 17:57, 4 January 2016 (UTC)
Request for unprotection of "Empty page"Edit
Hi, I wanted to create a redirect from Empty page to Intentionally blank page, similar to the existing redirect from Blank page, but the non-existing page is salted for vandalism. Can you unprotect it, please? (I'm contacting you because according to the logs you have been one of the admins involved back then.) Thanks --Matthiaspaul (talk) 13:20, 6 January 2016 (UTC)
You deleted Spottswoode Estate Vineyard & Winery last year as blatant promotion or advertising. I am reviewing a new draft, and am inclined to accept it, but I would appreciate if you could check the deleted article (which I can't see) and verify that the new draft is entirely different (as I think it is, because I can't imagine it being thought to be G11). Thank you. Robert McClenon (talk) 01:30, 9 January 2016 (UTC)
I noticed the article was deleted due to notability concerns and for advert before that. I poked around Google a little bit and found an article about them in The Wall Street Journal among others. I can't see the deleted versions, so I was hoping to get some context from you on whether there was a problem with the contents of the article, or if the subject just doesn't warrant inclusion in Wikipedia.
I have a potential COI. A contact of mine just recently got a job there; I am communicating to him that prior staff at that company have spammed Wikipedia and am trying to figure out if I can help him make a useful contribution, but notability looks kinda 50/50. I have found some decent sources at-a-glance, but with sentiment about notability changing all the time in response to adverts/spam, it's hard to peg with precision/consistency.

Undelete of RailfutureEdit
Hello Nawlin, I just ended up redlinking to Railfuture. Would you be able to undelete it to User:Sladen/Railfuture so I can take a look at it over the next couple of months see what can be done with it. After nine years out, perhaps it has a future! Many appreciations in advance, —Sladen (talk) 23:14, 14 January 2016 (UTC)
- As well as the first two attempts from c.2007, there's another attempt at Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Railfuture from c.2014—which I can't see either. If it makes sense, please could you consider doing a histmerge of all three attempts →Railfuture prior to undeleting to user space. —Sladen (talk) 23:55, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

Mandatory ANI NoticeEdit
Speedy deletion nomination of User talk:Sandbox for user warningsEdit
A tag has been placed on User talk:Sandbox for user warnings, requesting that it be deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under two or more of the criteria for speedy deletion, by which articles can be deleted at any time, without discussion. If the page meets any of these strictly-defined criteria, then it may be soon be deleted by an administrator. The reasons it has been tagged are:
- The page appears to have no meaningful content or history, and the text is unsalvageably incoherent. (See section G1 of the criteria for speedy deletion.) If the page you created was a test, please use the sandbox for any other experiments you would like to do.
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. 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.

Hawk'N Hawk requestEdit
Hi, I am Hawk'N Hawk and I would like to ask permission to create an article for Yu-Gi-Oh The Abridged Series. While back in 2008, there wasn't a lot to go by, a lot has happened and I feel that it's influence on both the internet and internet culture should allow it to be on the same pedestal as Markiplier or Channel Awesome. It isn't some random video on the internet, it was the founder of an entire genre of internet videos and I feel that it should have a category on wikipedia. — Preceding unsigned comment added by HawkNHawk (talk • contribs) 07:53, 13 April 2016 (UTC)

Hello. I was hoping you could unprotect LaToya Forever from creation so I can add an article I have written on her, it was protected in November 2013 due to being created by a banned user. Full disclosure I am being paid by someone who contacted me through Fiverr to create an article that is within Wikipedia guidelines, full sources etc. to demonstrate the notability of the subject. I have written the article and I believe it is both neutral and factual and should be acceptable within Wikipedia guidelines. The article is currently residing at User:MPJ-DK/Draft Space 2 but due to the actions of a banned user over two-and-a-half years ago it's still just a draft. I was hoping that after reading the article that you could unlock the page and let me create it? Please let me know if you have any concerns etc. always happy to address any issues there may be with my request. Thanks in advance. 20:43, 10 July 2016 (UTC)

Two-Factor Authentication now available for adminsEdit
Please note that TOTP based two-factor authentication is now available for all administrators. In light of the recent compromised accounts, you are encouraged to add this additional layer of security to your account. It may be enabled on your preferences page in the "User profile" tab under the "Basic information" section. For basic instructions on how to enable two-factor authentication, please see the developing help page for additional information. Important: Be sure to record the two-factor authentication key and the single use keys. If you lose your two factor authentication and do not have the keys, it's possible that your account will not be recoverable. Furthermore, you are encouraged to utilize a unique password and two-factor authentication for the email account associated with your Wikimedia account. This measure will assist in safeguarding your account from malicious password resets. Comments, questions, and concerns may be directed to the thread on the administrators' noticeboard.

A new user right for New Page PatrollersEdit
A new user group, New Page Reviewer, has been created in a move to greatly improve the standard of new page patrolling. The user right can be granted by any admin at PERM. It is highly recommended that admins look beyond the simple numerical threshold and satisfy themselves that the candidates have the required skills of communication and an advanced knowledge of notability and deletion. Admins are automatically included in this user right.
It is anticipated that this user right will significantly reduce the work load of admins who patrol the performance of the patrollers. However,due to the complexity of the rollout, some rights may have been accorded that may later need to be withdrawn, so some help will still be needed to some extent when discovering wrongly applied deletion tags or inappropriate pages that escape the attention of less experienced reviewers, and above all, hasty and bitey tagging for maintenance. User warnings are available here but very often a friendly custom message works best.

Hi, I'd like to request that the redirect for 420chan have its indefinite protection removed. Said protection was set by you in 2008, which was understandable at the time as imageboards were a dime a dozen and the article was poorly written content, however nowadays as other imageboards have come to exist and have grown to similar or even smaller sizes, whom now have their own dedicated articles (see Ylilauta and 8chan as an example) there is no reason for this redirect to not now be turned into a proper article. It's a 12 year old burgeoning community and a successful business.

Semi-protection on KFCEdit
Hi, NawlinWiki. You changed the protection level of the KFC article in January 2010. More than eight years have passed. Would you be willing to unprotect it? It's not as though KFC is a particularly controversial topic. Thanks, 2001:BB6:4703:4A58:755B:C994:A4CC:FC8 (talk) 21:22, 20 February 2018 (UTC)
Protected from Creation page on Yungen (rapper)Edit
In 2015 you changed the status of the Yungen (rapper) page to 'protected from creation' because the article was about a 'non-notable person, organisation, etc'. The notability status of this subject has since changed, and the artist recently went platinum in the UK. Because of this, would you reverse the page's protected status please? Thank you, Katbehookd (talk) 20:59, 25 February 2018 (UTC)

Hello, NawlinWiki. I wanted to let you know that I’m proposing an article that you started, David Hoff, for deletion because it's a biography of a living person that lacks references. If you don't want David Hoff to be deleted, please add a reference to the article.
If you don't understand this message, you can leave a note on my talk page.
As you doubtless remember (!!) you blocked this user in July 2008 for abuse of multiple accounts (Grawp). He has now asked for unblock; as difficult request to assess in view of the elapsed time. Do you have any advice to offer? ----Anthony Bradbury"talk" 16:15, 28 June 2018 (UTC)
As the original protecting admin (back in 2008), could you please unprotect Tim Pawlenty? He ran for president in 2012, but I'm not aware of any ongoing controversies since then. Thanks. 2600:1008:B148:D078:4142:B274:DB5F:AE93 (talk) 15:35, 22 July 2018 (UTC)
Orphaned non-free image File:Tutswashington.jpgEdit
Thanks for uploading File:Tutswashington.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).
Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in section F5 of the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 18:27, 14 September 2018 (UTC)
Allen key is currently fully-protected, with the reason "no reason to move or edit redirect without discussion". I think the protection level can probably be reduced from full at this point. Enterprisey (talk!) 06:09, 27 September 2018 (UTC)
Hi NawlinWiki, any reason why this is fully protected rather than just semi? I had to change it as the name has been assigned to a different genus. (See Wikipedia:WikiProject_Dinosaurs/Image_review#Maraapunisaurus). Cas Liber (talk · contribs) 19:31, 22 October 2018 (UTC)
ArbCom 2018 election voter messageEdit
Possible return of a blocked editorEdit
User Horrorhistorian (first edit 28 Oct 2018) appears to be Nickolaus Albert Pacione (NickolausPacione, Np1976, Plagiarismwatcher316, Unclefossil720) who was blocked 14 Oct 2015 by administrations NawlinWiki, Huon and MaxSem after a decade of abuses under different user names. He has been particularly active at Fan fiction and Edison Records. --Naaman Brown (talk) 14:02, 7 January 2019 (UTC)
Move protection for Louisville, KentuckyEdit
The page Louisville, Kentucky has been move-protected by you. I'm not proposing to move the page, and seeing as there are numerous other Louisville, <state> pages, it seems reasonable that the qualification of <state> is needed to distinguish them. But on the other hand, the page was moved once from 'Louisville'. Page protection is normally limited to some finite time. Do we need indefinite move protection here?

ArbCom 2019 special circularEdit
Administrator account security (Correction to Arbcom 2019 special circular)Edit
ArbCom would like to apologise and correct our previous mass message in light of the response from the community.
Since November 2018, six administrator accounts have been compromised and temporarily desysopped. In an effort to help improve account security, our intention was to remind administrators of existing policies on account security — that they are required to "have strong passwords and follow appropriate personal security practices." We have updated our procedures to ensure that we enforce these policies more strictly in the future. The policies themselves have not changed. In particular, two-factor authentication remains an optional means of adding extra security to your account. The choice not to enable 2FA will not be considered when deciding to restore sysop privileges to administrator accounts that were compromised.
We are sorry for the wording of our previous message, which did not accurately convey this, and deeply regret the tone in which it was delivered.
For the Arbitration Committee, -Cameron11598 21:04, 4 May 2019 (UTC)

Basudev (film) - Need a favorEdit
Hello NawlinWiki! Basudev has a redlink for the Nepali film. I was surprised because many useless promotional pages from Nepal exist while this didn't. It's arguably in the top 10 of the best Nepalese movies of all time. As such, I am certain many offline RS exist. But, not having a good library nearby which would keep such archives, I want to create a stub with only the reliable information that is available online. I have multiple hits on google books. There are a few web hits as well but Nepal doesn't have entertainment tabloids (not least online) that would qualify as WP:RS. I want to create an article but I don't want it to be deleted for the sole reason of ""being a recreation of deleted material". I think you were the one who deleted it before via WP:PROD. So, what do you think? Can I create a stub on this? Thanks! Usedtobecool ✉️ ✨ 06:49, 2 July 2019 (UTC)
I have just stumbled across a fairly recent edit of yours, and my attention was caught by the user name, which I rarely see now, but which I remember as one of the most active editors and administrators when I first became involved in Wikipedia. It gives me a certain feeling of nostalgia. JamesBWatson (talk) 20:39, 18 July 2019 (UTC)
