Turning off visual editorEdit

Hey Jeffrey, I saw you are quite frustrated (as was I) with the visual editor. You can "disable" it by going to Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-gadgets and under "editing" the very top check box will be "Remove the VisualEditor from the user interface", so you can click that to turn it off. Take care man, — -dainomite   01:36, 27 July 2013 (UTC)[]

PRODsEdit

Hey, I deleted the mention you made at Category talk:Proposed deletion. PRODs show up automatically in the category depending on what day the PROD template was added. You can see yours here. Tokyogirl79 (。◕‿◕。) 05:29, 31 January 2014 (UTC)[]

Yeah, I thought it looked very suspicious. I would have never looked at them except they performed those anonympus edits on Network Solutions to improve the NetSol brand.

re: HPKPEdit

do you have any sources for #Controversies? ⁓ Hello71 17:30, 27 June 2015 (UTC)[]

Yes. This is from the IETF, which approved the standard: Comments on draft-ietf-websec-key-pinning. This is from OWASP, which is an organization dedicated to software security: Certificate and Public Key Pinning | HTTP Pinning
the former is an email to the IETF, and the latter appears to be a) an unofficial "wiki", and b) cites... Wikipedia as the source of information. furthermore, while the first source does complain about the first "reason", it does not appear to state anything about the second, i.e. "The reporting of the broken pinset is called out as MUST NOT report". I was unable to find any "MUST NOT" sections in the RFC related to the reporting, so I am removing that part from the article. feel free to reinstate it if you have some references. ⁓ Hello71 15:52, 28 June 2015 (UTC)[]

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Daniel-Hill-Actor.jpgEdit

 

A tag has been placed on File:Daniel-Hill-Actor.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F9 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the file appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images taken from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use it — which means allowing other people to use it for any reason — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. The same holds if you are not the owner but have their permission. If you are not the owner and do not have permission, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission for how you may obtain it. You might want to look at Wikipedia's copyright policy for more details, or ask a question here.

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 deleted 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.

Please delete the image. Jeffrey Walton (talk) 09:37, 6 July 2018 (UTC)[]

Google Code-In 2019 is coming - please mentor some documentation tasks!Edit

Hello,

Google Code-In, Google-organized contest in which the Wikimedia Foundation participates, starts in a few weeks. This contest is about taking high school students into the world of opensource. I'm sending you this message because you recently edited a documentation page at the English Wikipedia.

I would like to ask you to take part in Google Code-In as a mentor. That would mean to prepare at least one task (it can be documentation related, or something else - the other categories are Code, Design, Quality Assurance and Outreach) for the participants, and help the student to complete it. Please sign up at the contest page and send us your Google account address to google-code-in-admins@lists.wikimedia.org, so we can invite you in!

From my own experience, Google Code-In can be fun, you can make several new friends, attract new people to your wiki and make them part of your community.

If you have any questions, please let us know at google-code-in-admins@lists.wikimedia.org.

Thank you!

Speedy deletion of File:TammyPascatelli-2042-official-headshot.jpgEdit

 

The page File:TammyPascatelli-2042-official-headshot.jpg has been speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This was done under section F7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it was a non-free file with a clearly invalid licensing tag; or it otherwise failed some part of the non-free content criteria. If you can find a valid tag that expresses why the file can be used under the fair use guidelines, you can re-upload it, but you must ensure you place the correct tag on it. If no such tag exists, please add the {{Non-free fair use}} tag, along with a brief explanation of why this constitutes fair use of the file.

Please do not recreate the material without addressing these concerns, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If you think this page should not have been deleted for this reason, you may contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you may open a discussion at Wikipedia:Deletion Review — JJMC89(T·C) 01:59, 5 April 2020 (UTC)[]

Speedy deletion nomination of GNU MPCEdit

 

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on GNU MPC requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page appears to be an unambiguous copyright infringement. This page appears to be a direct copy from http://www.multiprecision.org/mpc. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images taken from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites or other printed material as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website or image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text or image — which means allowing other people to use it for any reason — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. The same holds if you are not the owner but have their permission. If you are not the owner and do not have permission, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission for how you may obtain it.

June 2020Edit

  Hi Noloader! I noticed that you recently marked an edit as minor that may not have been. "Minor edit" has a very specific definition on Wikipedia — it refers only to superficial edits that could never be the subject of a dispute, such as typo corrections or reverting obvious vandalism. Any edit that changes the meaning of an article is not a minor edit, even if it only concerns a single word. Please see Help:Minor edit for more information. Thank you. David Biddulph (talk) 09:12, 3 June 2020 (UTC)[]

Thanks @David Biddulph. Can you unmark it as minor, please. I don't know how to do it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Noloader (talkcontribs) 09:13, 3 June 2020 (UTC)[]

Please stop adding text on "illusory pattern perception" unless it discussed the subject of the articleEdit

See WP:NOR. I'm reverting your edit at Murder of Seth Richard and see it was reverted at another article. Probably useful in articles about conspiracy theory as a subject though. Doug Weller talk 18:41, 17 June 2020 (UTC)[]

It is not original research. The research paper was discussed by at least two different online publications. The online publication summarized it.
I'll revert your incorrect reversion (unless you can come up with a valid reason).

Re: ANI closed threadEdit

I have removed your question at ANI because the thread is now closed so discussion should not be added further. To answer your question, as I stated in my closure statement for the thread, no action is necessary so no action is being taken. As several people tried to tell you in the thread, while you may perceive it as stalking or harassment, none has occurred. Other users can review other’s contributions at any time. The other user admitted a mistake and fixed it. There’s nothing else to be done.

I’m sorry you feel the behavior is “creepy” but no wrong has been done and there’s nothing that admins can or should do about this situation. only (talk) 23:51, 6 July 2020 (UTC)[]

Thanks Only.
I think Wikipedia should take the harassment and stalking a bit more seriously. There was no reason to go into my profile, look at my history and then revert valid edits. Not only is the harassment or stalking unacceptable behavior, the reversion [out of spite] to a broken page harmed the site. There is absolutely no excuse to allow a user to break pages in an effort to spite another user.
And to be clear, I understand edits will happen all the time. I have no problem with it. It is the harassing or stalking a user through his or her profile I have a problem with.
I sincerely hope I never work for the company you work for. I image a very hostile environment where your company allows all kinds of toxic behavior and inappropriate comments. Seriously.
Jeffrey Walton (talk) 00:06, 7 July 2020 (UTC)[]
Sorry, I'm walking away from this because there's nothing I can say that will resolve this in a manner that you find appropriate, and there's nothing further than we can or should do in this situation. Have a great day and happy editing going forward. only (talk) 00:11, 7 July 2020 (UTC)[]
Thanks again Only
It is easy to resolve this in an appropriate manner. Recognize that this edit was wrong on several different levels: Open Access 966291239. First, the reversion occurred due to spite. There were no technical or editorial reasons to perform it. Second, the revision occurred because he/she found it by stalking me through my profile. Third, the reversion put the page back into a broken state.

"Worst" claim at Kelo v. City of New LondonEdit

Hello, I saw that you recently added a claim that Kelo v. City of New London was "one of the worst", but you did not provide sufficient sourcing for this claim. The case is not mentioned in two of your sources, a third is a YouTube video, and a fourth is a blog, the latter two are not WP:RS. Your sources must explicitly say that this case was "the worst" and be very reliable to be from a neutral point of view. This was brought to my attention at Wikipedia:Teahouse#A_beginner's_question_about_editing_suspicious_claim_supported_by_footnotes.  Ganbaruby! (talk) 19:08, 22 June 2021 (UTC)[]

Links to draft articlesEdit

  Please do not introduce links in actual articles to draft articles, as you did to X.509.

October 2021Edit

  Thank you for contributing to the article Soy sauce. However, please do not use unreliable sources such as blogs, your own website, websites and publications with a poor reputation for checking the facts or with no editorial oversight, expressing views that are widely acknowledged as extremist, that are promotional in nature, or that rely heavily on rumors and personal opinions, as one of Wikipedia's core policies is that contributions must be verifiable through reliable sources, preferably using inline citations. If you require further assistance, please look at Help:Contents/Editing Wikipedia, or ask at the Teahouse. Bernard Hsu's YouTube channel doesn't look like it meets WP:SELFPUBLISH. Perhaps there's a text source for the same news story?--Lord Belbury (talk) 09:50, 2 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Lord Belbury, I don't think a medical doctor with a specialty in toxicology is an unreliable source. Please explain your position. If you cannot, then I'll revert the edit. Thanks.
Jeffrey Walton (talk) 10:43, 2 October 2021 (UTC)[]
If you can show that he meets the "work in the relevant field has previously been published by reliable, independent publications" of WP:SELFPUBLISH, go ahead. If he's commenting on a case from the news, though, there will presumably be other, stronger sources to use here. --Lord Belbury (talk) 11:00, 2 October 2021 (UTC)[]
Lord Belbury, here you go... Perceptions about Complementary and Alternative Medicine. You can find it on NIH website.
You seem to have a problem with the platform (like YouTube or Wordpress), but make an argument against the content provider (like the doctor) or the content (media he/she produced on the subject). I think that's disingenuous. Its OK to dislike the platform, but you can't claim all content providers on the platform are junk. That's a logical fallacy.
Jeffrey Walton (talk) 11:28, 2 October 2021 (UTC)[]
Thanks for the response, if he's published on toxicology then Wikipedia can cite statements about toxicology on his YouTube channel. You seem to be inventing your own idea of what I think about YouTube, maybe that's some kind of logical fallacy too? --Lord Belbury (talk) 09:39, 4 October 2021 (UTC)[]
