Some bubble tea for you!Edit

  Credits where it is due. Thanks a lot for relisting AfDs with vote stuffed Keep comments and thereby maintaining the sanctity of AfD. Cheers from a fellow AfD contributor. DBigXray 11:27, 5 February 2019 (UTC)

...and in case you are wondering, I was referring to this excellent relist. --DBigXray 11:31, 5 February 2019 (UTC)


Checking on Measures for Justice article creationEdit

I see that on January 30 2019 you removed a Requested Article idea in the Business and economics/Organizations section under M, with the note "Removal of idea - selected for work." Am I right in thinking this was the suggestion for an article on Measures for Justice? And if so, do you know when this article might be posted? Thank you so much for taking up the suggestion.

Egallo25 (talk) 19:57, 9 April 2019 (UTC)

@Egallo25: - hi there. It's tricky for me to say - my biggest article I did in 3 days when I had nothing to do, others took a fair while. If you want to work on it then go ahead, I can always feed in any content I've made - just let me know if you move it into mainspace (article space). It can also be put back in the requested articles if you want, though if you spot someone else take it, let me know. I'll take it off if I get close to finishing my version. Nosebagbear (talk) 20:53, 9 April 2019 (UTC)
@Nosebagbear: Thank you for the update. Since I work for the organization as a freelancer, I think I'm not supposed to create the article and that it instead should be written by an established Wikipedia editor. We're just eagerly awaiting it. If it went back into requested articles I'd worry that it would take a while for someone else to notice it, so I think it's best in your hands. Thank you
@Nosebagbear: If you don't think you will complete the Measures for Justice article soon, could you put it back into the Requested Article section, in hopes someone else might do it? It's been seven months, and nine months since the idea was suggested, so we're just hopeful that we can get it done somehow soon. Thanks so much!
@Egallo25: - sorry, I missed this, (for future note, to "ping" someone, you need to add the ~~~~ at the end of your whole message). You are of course right to do so. I'll only take it off the RA if I've made major progress in writing it (which I only do if I'm going to finish it). Nosebagbear (talk) 09:34, 28 July 2019 (UTC)


Good to meet at the WES LSE event. Andrew D. (talk) 15:39, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

@Andrew Davidson: - and you! Had a look at your userpage post-event and realised I missed a chance to talk about article creation. Nosebagbear (talk) 08:04, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
In the last week, I've created: Beach cleaning; Davies White; Elizabeth Georgeson; Harold George Jerrard; Mordaunt Cohen; Political Achievements of the Earl of Dalkeith. I now realise that that's not quite one a day so I should increase my pace to match the prodigious Jess Wade. So, while I'm in this mood, it's still a good time to discuss article creation. What's on your mind? Andrew D. (talk) 08:28, 23 May 2019 (UTC>

you havent seen anythingEdit

unless you have seen {{welcome-menu}} JarrahTree 12:06, 24 May 2019 (UTC)

@JarrahTree: - I feel that I'm missing a joke (unless this is just a very specific wiki-advertising piece), but can't remember what it was in reference for - apologies for any humour foiled. Nosebagbear (talk) 12:14, 24 May 2019 (UTC)
- the sheer volume of links via that template outdoes any concern about links -( -I dont think many people take much notice of guidelines anymore never apologise - see my user page on that - we all are terribly serious here... JarrahTree 00:04, 25 May 2019 (UTC>

Draft:Eugene Maynard FreedmanEdit

I notice you put Draft:Eugene Maynard Freedman under review. I was also digging into it, and would strongly recommend declining it because it cherry picks from the available sources to memorialise him rather than being a neutral profile. It whitewashes by giving undue weight to positive things while ignoring those that are negative. I'll elaborate in a concurring (or dissenting) opinion when you finish your review. --Worldbruce (talk) 15:04, 9 July 2019 (UTC)

@Worldbruce: - I passed it as I felt it wasn't so drastic as that it would fail AfD - however my reading of the two good sources (plus a little bit in a couple of books I found when looking for an additional source) do indeed indicate significant hostility towards the man. I planned on cutting the gordian knot by just adding a paragraph myself Nosebagbear (talk) 15:07, 9 July 2019 (UTC)

Hi ,I have corrected errors and removed all the external links on the main text of my article . I would like to know if there are other parts i should correct or add as well Rumbidzainokutenda (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 23:39, 13 July 2019 (UTC)

Translation from Russian to English the article about The LitRes companyEdit

Thank you for your answer here

1. > Firstly, you need to fix the copyright, as you've declare it's a translation of another wikipedia version. Please make a blank edit and in the summary add a URL link to the view history of the article you've duplicated this from

- Can you please explain to me what the "blank edit" is? And if it's not difficult for you to provide me more details how I can do it?

2. > While this comes from another Wikipedia, that doesn't mean it meets our rules. Wikipedias can set different rules, and en-wiki has strict notability rules for companies, so better sourcing is needed.

- But what if sources are in Russian not in English?

3. > While it's not extreme promotionalism, it reads more like what they'd say on their website, listing all the good things they do/offer. Nosebagbear (talk) 12:03, 31 July 2019 (UTC)

- Can you please explain what the article should be about? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ashashko (talkcontribs)

Firstly, please make sure to sign your comment with ~~~~ - I do lots of AFC stuff so helps me track do who I'm talking to :)
1) A blank edit is just an edit where you don't make any substantive change, in order to put something in the edit summary. You have to change something so people often fix a typo or add a space somewhere. You edit in the same way you would normally add content. You want to add the URL of the history of the article. (e.g. if you were duplicating content from Politics of Asia you would cite )
2) Sources in Russian (or any other language) are fine.
3) For this I'd suggest having a look at some other company articles. You should find a few yourself - you don't want to look at massive pages like Google, but smaller ones like AWB Limited, which you'll see gives a more balanced summary both about the company generally but also good and bad representation in the news.

Your GA nomination of Fairness ProjectEdit

Hi there, I'm pleased to inform you that I've begun reviewing the article Fairness Project you nominated for GA-status according to the criteria.   This process may take up to 7 days. Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments you might have during this period. Message delivered by Legobot, on behalf of The Rambling Man -- The Rambling Man (talk) 16:01, 9 August 2019 (UTC)


I've seen you mention your distaste for the oversighter icon in a couple places and I'm curious what about it you find so "creepy"? I'd say the pending changes icon is far more unsettling, and what I thought you meant at first. Wug·a·po·des​ 22:38, 12 August 2019 (UTC)

I actually quite like how creepy the oversight logo is - I just find it entertainingly Orwellian - the logo gives the idea that there are bits and pieces of the encyclopedia being taken out without anyone knowing (I realise on a very literal, minimalist sense, this is accurate).
I find the pending changes logo a bit odd, but without the well crafted sinisterness Nosebagbear (talk) 22:52, 12 August 2019 (UTC)
Ah, I misread then. I always thought the symbolism was kind of clever, but now that you put it like that I agree that it is kinda creepy to think about! Best, Wug·a·po·des​ 23:15, 12 August 2019 (UTC)
I wouldn't have said you misread - creepy isn't generally a positive description to give something! It definitely is clever symbolism, and it's interesting to see how it gets interpreted (perhaps I have too much paranoia). Cheers Nosebagbear (talk)

Your GA nomination of Fairness ProjectEdit

The article Fairness Project you nominated as a good article has passed  ; see Talk:Fairness Project for comments about the article. Well done! If the article has not already been on the main page as an "In the news" or "Did you know" item, you can nominate it to appear in Did you know.

Service awardEdit

This has been long due. Thanks for being such an amazing all round contributor. --DBigXray 17:31, 17 August 2019 (UTC)

This editor is a Veteran Editor II and is entitled to display this Bronze Editor Star.
@DBigXray: - that's very appreciated, though I feel a bit ridiculous claiming my technical length as an editor - 18 months ago I'd only made about 150 edits! But I was really happy to get my GA, I'd fallen a bit away from content creation so it was nice to do some more. Nosebagbear (talk) 17:55, 17 August 2019 (UTC)
I would not worry about technicalities. It's hard to stay away from Wikipedia even if you are not editing, unless ofcourse you are in a cave, (in that case, you will have better things to worry about). IMHO, you have already compensated the years with your edit counts. So be proud. I had read your recent rfa votes and was glad to see us sitting on the same side  of the fence, no matter which. Shows that we think similarly. Congratulations on your GA. It makes you a step ahead of me since I am yet to get one. I will be glad to collaborate if you find yourself overwhelmed with a GAR. Cheers. --DBigXray 18:11, 17 August 2019 (UTC)

New evidence regarding the notability of ADSR_Online_Midi_Editor_and_PlayerEdit

I am respectfully requesting that you change your "Delete" vote regarding ADSR_Online_Midi_Editor_and_Player, in consideration of the following new information that has just surfaced:

I just discovered that Classical_Archives (the largest classical music site in the world), has endorsed the product that this article describes, for the past two years. The following website contains the statement " is the ONLY Online Midi Editor":

Considering the following facts, I can't imagine a stronger indication of notability:

  • does not accept any advertising or user-entered editorial .
  • Their website does not mention any other Midi Editors, so they are not a "Midi Directory" website.
  • I have no relationship whatsoever with

The following webpage shows that this endorsement has been prominently displayed on their website since at least April 26 2017

The reason you gave for your Delete vote was "I still don't think sufficient sourcing is available". I hope you agree that that reason no longer stands.

Thank you for your consideration. MySonLikesTrump (talk) 23:49, 19 August 2019 (UTC)
