Thanks — copyright issueEdit

Thank you for your fix... any closeness on Rosamond's page was unintentional, but I will certainly be more careful! Johnshade2 (talk) 17:38, 27 April 2021 (UTC)


Hi. GNG requires "more than a trivial mention, but it does not need to be the main topic of the source material." It does not require "multiple" (not three) sources, of three paragraphs each. There is a great difference between what GNG requires in this regard, and your personal view. --2603:7000:2143:8500:E859:840:B60B:D974 (talk) 17:36, 27 April 2021 (UTC)

Re My "Bullying" Text, a Thanks for CommentingEdit

Ref Editor_assistance/Requests#Harassment%2C_Bullying%2C_Uncivil_Commentary%3A_Parsecboy

First, please accept my apologies for the long time to respond, but I've had some things go on. I just wanted to thank you for taking time to look in on what I posted, and will get back to you. Don't want you to think you wasted your time. I'm kind of a noob and not a great programmer, so it took me a while to figure out how to do the "diff" link. Will get back and interested in what you think. Take care.

DYK for Smell trainingEdit

 On 5 May 2021, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Smell training, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that smell training is being used to treat long-term loss of smell after COVID-19 infection? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Smell training. You are welcome to check how many pageviews the nominated article or articles got while on the front page (here's how, Smell training), and if they received a combined total of at least 416.7 views per hour (i.e., 5,000 views in 12 hours or 10,000 in 24), the hook may be added to the statistics page. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

You declined Draft:Habitation and Logistics Outpost (Gateway Module). It is a draft being worked on by the Mir, ISS, and Gateway task force at WikiProject Spaceflight. There are articles for other parts of the same space station. This article was requested by the task force. Please reconsider the declining. StarshipSLS (talk) 13:46, 5 May 2021 (UTC)

@StarshipSLS He will not reconsider it, I am sure - any Reviewer would have declined it. Please read the comments given to you. On this draft only worked you as far as I see. You still do not seem to understand our policies although we gave you lots of info and hints in the last couple of days. CommanderWaterford (talk) 15:25, 5 May 2021 (UTC)
@CommanderWaterford: I Yes, I understand the problems with it now.

And, more users need to work on it with me. StarshipSLS (talk) 15:39, 5 May 2021 (UTC)
It is completely irrelevant for a review who or how many people have requested an article, even if Jimbo in person would have requested it and I am pretty sure that they requested more than just a simple copy & paste of a PR newsrelease. CommanderWaterford (talk) 16:16, 5 May 2021 (UTC)
@CommanderWaterford: You put the press release in there. This is what I am going to do:
  1. Post a message on the WikiProject Spaceflight Talk Page
  2. Work together with other editors
  3. Resubmit
  4. Draft Accepted

Reverted changeEdit

Hi, is "Early 2021" a better grammar ?

Sincerely — Preceding unsigned comment added by Parminous (talkcontribs)

Parminous. Hey there. [1]. I'd recommend changing it to: In January 2021, the chair of the EU Tax Matters Subcommittee Paul Tang criticised the list for not including "renowned tax havens" such as Jersey.

Revert of recent edits to Representational state transferEdit

Hi Novem Linguae,

You have recently reverted my week’s work on the article Representational state transfer, claiming that they may violate copyright. This is not the case, as Roy Fielding states explicitly on the site hosting his doctoral dissertation (

Copying or printing this work

You may have noticed that I have included a copyright statement of "All rights reserved" on all pages of this HTML edition. The purpose of that is to make it clear who owns the copyright (me) so that you don't go asking the University of California or UMI (the microfiche archive company) for the following permission.

I, Roy Thomas Fielding, hereby grant permission to You, whoever you may be, to copy, print, or otherwise reproduce this dissertation for non-commercial use (including classroom, research, government use, or anything covered by the usual notion of "fair use") in its original PDF edition, 2-up PDF edition, or HTML edition, or excerpts thereof, provided that any such reproduction includes the full reference to this work, as described below, either on the initial page of the reproduction or by citation to a list of references within a larger work.

If you would like to reproduce this work for commercial purposes, as in selling it as a book or a significant part of a published compilation, then you will have to ask for my permission separately.

So could we restore my work?

Best regards,

Maggyero (talk) 17:37, 21 May 2021 (UTC)

Hi Maggyero. Thanks for the explanation, I did not see that. I do not think that this copyright license is permissive enough, as there is a clear "© Roy Thomas Fielding, 2000. All rights reserved." at the bottom of the source page, and also "educational use only" licenses are not usually considered permissive enough to use at Wikipedia. But I am not an expert on this, so I am happy to ping Diannaa for a second opinion, if she's available and willing. Hope that helps. –Novem Linguae (talk) 21:00, 21 May 2021 (UTC)
That's not a compatible license, because it does not allow commercial use, and our license allows any use whatsoever, including commercial use.— Diannaa 🇨🇦 (talk) 21:58, 21 May 2021 (UTC)
@Diannaa: Thank you. So what is the process now? Can I submit a copyright compliant version this weekend? Maggyero (talk) 22:39, 21 May 2021 (UTC)
Hey Maggyero. I already removed the problem text from the article and submitted a request for revision deletion. The old revisions will be hidden from view. If you continue work on the article, you will need to make sure that you do not use copy pasted text. Please use the current, copyright compliant version as a base. Hope that helps. –Novem Linguae (talk) 22:42, 21 May 2021 (UTC)
Thanks for you help. I will better paraphrase. Could I request your review when I am done? Maggyero (talk) 23:48, 21 May 2021 (UTC)
Maggyero, sure. Two tips, if I may. 1) Check this tool every once in awhile to make sure your additions aren't setting off the copyright detector. 2) Consider using the existing structure of the article as a base, rather than doing a complete re-write. Small, incremental changes are more likely to be found acceptable. –Novem Linguae (talk) 04:17, 23 May 2021 (UTC)
Thanks for the tool suggestion, I really like that tool. What is the maximal similarity percentage of the copyright detector for an acceptable article on Wikipedia? Maggyero (talk) 09:08, 23 May 2021 (UTC)
Maggyero, best to examine the red highlighted text on the left. Only quotes and proper nouns should be highlighted. Once you get over like 5 unquoted words in a row highlighted, that's getting into copy paste territory, which isn't permitted. Hope that helps. –Novem Linguae (talk) 12:27, 26 May 2021 (UTC)
I see. Thanks for you help. Maggyero (talk) 16:42, 26 May 2021 (UTC)

"Nothing personal" – does that still apply?Edit

A while ago, you said "nothing personal". It was when you moved "video game piracy" article back to its original title, I think. Does that still apply? I don't feel happy at all right now. I don't feel happy in general. Do you think that I'm trying to be disruptive? You have no obligation to believe me but I promise you I'm not. I've seen a problem and I'm trying to fix it. Is it my wording that causes me to fail? Or is it something else? Please help me. This situation is depressing. DesertPipeline (talk) 04:32, 23 May 2021 (UTC)

DesertPipeline, hello. Yeap, nothing personal still applies. I think you're a good person and I think you're editing in good faith. I do not think you're being intentionally disruptive. You're not edit warring, and you're keeping most of this on talk pages, which is good. I am just not comfortable having this "software piracy" POV stuff in mainspace or in a Wikipedia essay that gives advice to users. My view has solidified on this since we last talked, because this issue has come up on 3 talk pages that I'm following, and if I recall correctly multiple editors have sided against this POV, and not a single editor has sided with this POV. Also, we asked you to userfy your POV essay Wikipedia:Loaded words and terms on Wikipedia, and you declined, so the next logical step is MFD.
Is it my wording that causes me to fail? Or is it something else? The core problem is that reliable sources are fine with the phrase "software piracy", but you are not. Wikipedia is an encyclopedia. We are a WP:TERTIARY source that summarizes what WP:SECONDARY sources (such as newspapers and books) say. We do not get to decide these things ourselves. We must summarize what reliable secondary sources say. It is OK to have a personal POV, we all do. But it is not OK to let it show in our editing. We must always remain neutral in the sense that we survey what secondary sources say about something, then we cover the ideas proportionally. Please see WP:WEIGHT and WP:NPOV. –Novem Linguae (talk) 07:48, 23 May 2021 (UTC)
Then should I give up trying to fix things here and simply focus on the real world? DesertPipeline (talk) 07:51, 23 May 2021 (UTC)
Hi DesertPipeline. In my personal opinion, I think you should give up on editing your personal list of loaded words out of articles. A strong consensus seems to have formed against that. However you are of course welcome to help out doing pretty much anything and everything else. For example, your talk page says you enjoy copy editing, so that'd be a great area to jump into. Just be receptive to feedback and you'll be fine. It may seem like it's a bunch of people posting their personal opinions and corrections on talk pages, but there's actually a lot of written and unwritten norms around here. If an experienced editor is making the post, it is often not an attempt to bully you into following an opinion, but rather to let you know what the norm is around here. Hope that helps. –Novem Linguae (talk) 08:05, 23 May 2021 (UTC)
Thank you. I was too vague in my comment though; I meant should I stop trying to fix things here relating to these words and instead try to solve the problem in the real world itself? DesertPipeline (talk) 08:07, 23 May 2021 (UTC)
DesertPipeline, yes, I think that'd be a good idea. –Novem Linguae (talk) 08:12, 23 May 2021 (UTC)
Okay; thank you. I have no idea how I'm going to do that, especially with the CVD-19 pandemic still going on, but I don't want to do nothing about all the problems in the world. DesertPipeline (talk) 08:16, 23 May 2021 (UTC)
DesertPipeline, hmm, maybe start a blog on or something similar? Or maybe see if GNU has a forum/Discord and participate there? –Novem Linguae (talk) 08:29, 23 May 2021 (UTC)
I'm not sure if I trust WordPress; if I were to do something like that, I'd probably want to host my own website (even though I don't have a computer I can leave on all the time for that). I've never liked Discord – it's proprietary spyware. It would be strange if any GNU community was using it. DesertPipeline (talk) 09:01, 23 May 2021 (UTC)

Allegra Mostyn-OwenEdit

Hello, I have added one additional source from the Evening Standard as you requested for Draft:Allegra_Mostyn-Owen article. Please let me know if this will suffice. Thank you. --Death Star Central (talk) 08:01, 27 May 2021 (UTC)

Death Star Central, thanks for your work on the article. This new source appears to be based off an interview (lots of quotes), so arguably is not independent. Also, it being from the same newspaper as one of the other GNG sources is also not ideal (ideally, all 3 should be different). It doesn't quite pass my threshold yet, but I am happy to leave it in the queue for another reviewer. Or you could also add some additional sources and I'll take another look. Hope that helps. –Novem Linguae (talk) 08:21, 27 May 2021 (UTC)
@Novem Linguae Oh, I see what you mean. Here is another article from The Times I have now added to this article. You need to subscribe to read it fully, but you can subscribe one month for free on a smartphone. --Death Star Central (talk) 08:32, 27 May 2021 (UTC)
Death Star Central, thanks for that source. I obtained a copy through WP:RX and read it. I am concerned that the author has too close a relationship to the article subject (talks about going places with her), OR that the entire article is a submission from a reader (says "Email yasmin with your life-affirming true stories" at the bottom). –Novem Linguae (talk) 10:33, 27 May 2021 (UTC)
@Novem LinguaeRight, ok. Well how about this reference in The Siasat Daily, titled "Abdul Majid with his new wife" that I have added to the article?--Death Star Central (talk) 11:50, 27 May 2021 (UTC)

Fixed archiving on User talk:Novem Linguae/NewslettersEdit

Hi! I took the liberty of fixing the auto-archiving settings at User talk:Novem Linguae/Newsletters. The bot will only archive to a subpage of the page to be archived, otherwise the page shows up in Category:Pages where archive parameter is not a subpage. So I configured it to use User talk:Novem Linguae/Newsletters/Archive 1 (at first, it'll automatically increase the counter if the first archive is full). --rchard2scout (talk) 09:25, 28 May 2021 (UTC)

In the revert summary, you have written "bio-engineering is still considered a conspiracy theory" Nope!

Please explain how you apply your neutral point of viewEdit

Thank you for your friendly reminder / final warning to block me. Do you mind sharing all the details of your investigation/research on PolitiFact that the source is neutral itself? When a different point of view was cited and presented, it was automatically labelled as against the neutral point of view and Vandalism and disruptive editing? Thank you in advance for the education I am looking forward to.

The same reply was also posted on [talk page]. CatchBias (talk) 21:22, 7 July 2021 (UTC)

CatchBias. Hey there. Your edits did not have the correct tone for an encyclopedia. We can't say that a publication "spread truth". Also you were edit warring, you received multiple reverts and user talk warnings yet kept repeating the same edits. That is why you were given a level 4 warning. You are welcome to suggest changes to the article on the page Talk:Guo Wengui, and if enough editors agree, changes will be made. –Novem Linguae (talk) 21:29, 7 July 2021 (UTC)
You did not answer my question. Please answer it first, so we can take it from there together - whether PolitiFact is biased and back it up. All I can see is you promote bias narrative. Also, you lack basic user-centered mindset to work in your role: you CANNOT expect new users to notice all your features all at once. All I can see if the undos in the version history which distracted me from any notifications. my biggest concern is the first undo was because of no reliable source; now the story changed to tone. What is next? Is it called inconsistency?CatchBias (talk) 22:08, 7 July 2021 (UTC)
CatchBias, PolitiFact is "generally reliable" at WP:RSPSOURCES. But as I said on your user talk page, this would be a good discussion to have at Talk:Guo Wengui. –Novem Linguae (talk) 22:35, 7 July 2021 (UTC)
According to the thesaurus, the opposite words of misinformation include, for example, "truth", so Wiki's neutral point of view means the word "disinformation" is neutral, but the opposite word "truth", a word listed as an antonym in the dictionary, is not? What is your suggestion to bring the Wall Street Journal commentary to Wiki: The Science Suggests a Wuhan Lab Leak to Wiki? Thank you. CatchBias (talk) 22:50, 7 July 2021 (UTC)

WP article on Carlo DigilioEdit

Good morning @Novem Linguae:, I would like to apologize for an article which probably is not in an idiomatic English. I have inspected it and just made same corrections.

There was a red wlink in the article about the Piazza Fontana bombing, so I thought the encyclopedia needed a translation of it.

I would be grateful if you or other WP users are likely to have a look to the text and made eventual further improvements. Regards, Theologian81sp (talk) 10:36, 10 July 2021 (UTC)

I may end up writing a user script to auto watchlist the afd page of any AFC accept or NPP pass of mine, so I can see these afds more easily and calibrate my reviewing. For professors, I tend to approve if their h-index is over 20. Thanks again, see you around! –Novem Linguae (talk) 18:56, 17 July 2021 (UTC)
I think AfC used to have a bot to alert us, I certainly think it would be good to know. Some I would not argue when I take a 50/50 punt but others I would and for PRODs it can be worse as one person can kill even though clearly the author and reviewer disagree.

Objection to accepting Draft:Jennifer B. GlassEdit

Hi, I read your comment on Draft:Jennifer B. Glass. I too would consider said subject barely shy from my very arbitrary threshold for passing WP:PROF#1, but I feel somewhat compelled to give the benefit of the doubt and not allow for a small margin to decline what I would believe is a highly accomplished women scientist in her field. If you don't feel too strongly about this, I'd feel comfortable accepting. The worst that can happen is someone challenges this decision at AfD. What do you say? nearlyevil665 07:26, 20 July 2021 (UTC)

Nearlyevil665, works for me. Go for it. Just be advised, I got AFD'd on an article I recently accepted of a professor with h-index of 24, and it's currently 3 delete, 4 keep. Pretty close. –Novem Linguae (talk) 07:36, 20 July 2021 (UTC)
Thanks for the heads up! nearlyevil665 07:41, 20 July 2021 (UTC)
Nearlyevil665, by the way, do you have WP:DISCORD? It's always nice to chat with NPP/AFC folk. –Novem Linguae (talk) 08:16, 20 July 2021 (UTC)
I found your Discord username. I'll send you a message. –Novem Linguae (talk) 08:18, 20 July 2021 (UTC)
Yes, I'm on there! Drop me a message. nearlyevil665 08:21, 20 July 2021 (UTC)


Thank you Novem Linkuae, for your inputs. I have added more description to the topic. Can you please help me out on how can I make my article pass WP:GNG Thank you Pateldeepesh (talk) 09:27, 20 July 2021 (UTC)

Pateldeepesh, I'd recommend more citations. Currently there are 3, and they are to unreliable WP:SELFPUBLISHed sources such as Medium and GitHub. Those don't count toward WP:GNG. –Novem Linguae (talk) 09:32, 20 July 2021 (UTC)

Zillur RahmanEdit

Thanks for message. He's clearly notable, but you appear to have overlooked some other issues

  • The image is a copyright violation, see this, tagged Copyright © 2021, All Rights Reserved, Institute Computer Centre, IIT Roorkee
  • The text has three sources, two are websites where he has written the content, and the third is his own book. Publications should be in a section with that title, not used to reference their author. I can't see how you could accept a biography of a living person entirely lacking independent verifiable references.
  • The claim which is widely used as a text book in Consumer Behavior courses in Indian Business schools is promotional in tone and the WorldCat link you reference it to doesn't say that, let alone confirm it
  • Not a reason for deletion, but using US English instead of Indian English spelling for an article about an Indian living and working in India is clearly not appropriate

I stand by deleting what you accepted since it has no properly verified content and a promotional claim, but I'm prepared to restore it as a draft without the refs and the promo if you want to fix the problems Cheers Jimfbleak - talk to me? 13:09, 22 July 2021 (UTC)

Jimfbleak. Hey there. Thanks for the feedback. I'll go ahead and calibrate my reviewing based on your advice. No need to restore the article. Thanks for your time. –Novem Linguae (talk) 13:42, 22 July 2021 (UTC)

All's well that ends well, I 'sposeEdit

Good grief, all that trouble with Draft:Andrey Aksyonov, only to end in a redir. How did you know it was a duplicate, given the different spelling? Anyway, good catch, and a neat outcome. :) Cheers, --DoubleGrazing (talk) 05:38, 24 July 2021 (UTC)

DoubleGrazing. Hey there. I think it was probably double submitted to game the system. I accepted one of them due to WP:NPOL, and had watchlisted the other one for some reason, without realizing there were 2 until the watchlist one popped up again. I think at the time they had the same picture, a portrait with a blue background, so that helped jog my memory. Honestly I am second guessing myself a bit, when I get some time I may go through the sources again and if I do not like their quality, I may unreview it. –Novem Linguae (talk) 06:14, 24 July 2021 (UTC)

Draft:Emma (documentary)Edit

Thank you so much for reviewing and for your feedback on Emma. It is an award winning documentary. I have also added some other sources that are not from Like [2]. Also note the reviews from thespinoff. Please note [3] and also [4] - Thank you so much for reviewing! I appreciate the feedback. I will keep searching for other reliable sources. --ArleneHerman (talk) 09:53, 26 July 2021 (UTC)

ArleneHerman, great. Go ahead and resumit when ready. –Novem Linguae (talk) 09:55, 26 July 2021 (UTC)
  • Thank you. It is not a web series, but an online documentary. Thank you :) --ArleneHerman (talk) 10:11, 26 July 2021 (UTC)

Draft:Crisis and split in People's Socialist Party, Nepal, 2021Edit

I noticed you declined my article for submission. This section made other article to long. So i created a new article for it to we manage these informations. It was based on issue of national interest. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

That article is not very big. I recommend you get consensus on the talk page before trying to split. Talk:People's Socialist Party, Nepal. –Novem Linguae (talk) 10:10, 26 July 2021 (UTC)

A pie for you!Edit

  Thank you for helping with the query for the AfC backlog drive leaderboard, and for helping to keep it updated! Enterprisey (talk!) 07:56, 28 July 2021 (UTC)

Draft:Maksym KozytskyyEdit

I saw your decline reason on this draft while removing categories from drafts and tried to improve it, and wanted your opinion on how I did. CodeLyokotalk 20:03, 28 July 2021 (UTC)

CodeLyoko, thanks for your work on the draft. I went ahead and submitted it. A reviewer will be along shortly to take a look. –Novem Linguae (talk) 20:39, 28 July 2021 (UTC)

Questions Re: GNG and SourcesEdit

Hello! I saw your post recently in the (completely off the rails) discussion on and I wanted to ask you some questions. Before I start, I want to quickly clarify that I really don't care if that particular article gets deleted or not, I'm just trying to understand how AfD, GNG, and source analysis works. A lot of the "delete" comments in that particular thread are using arguments that I've seen dismissed in other AfD discussions, like that the tone of the article is promotional or sensational (the solution of that would be to edit and remove promotional language, not delete, correct?). Part of my concern is that GNG is applied differently based on the editors personal feelings towards the subject or an article itself - I've seen subjects with a lot less coverage than Aliza Kelly pass AfD discussions. It feels to me like she could have a 1,000 word profile in the Washington Post and some of the commenters in that thread would still say "delete" because they don't like her, the article, astrology itself, or the way that some of the "keep" voters are behaving in the AfD discussion. The dispute about the New Yorker article is particularly confusing to me. Again, I'm truly neutral here. I have no opinion. I sort of wish I had just stayed out of that whole AfD. But I'm just trying to figure out, as someone who's been editing and participating in AfD discussions for about a month and would like to start contributing actual articles at some point, what kind of sources are really required to pass GNG. I know that, at the end of the day, consensus is what really decides it more than anything else, but I feel like there has got to be something more in depth and concrete than WP:GNG that I'm missing. Do you have any guidance on this or further reading? Thank you! Niftysquirrel (talk) 13:41, 29 July 2021 (UTC)

Niftysquirrel, hello friend. This is a great question.
Short answer – Check out this essay I wrote on the nuances of GNG.
Long answer – I've been in your shoes. I've been a new editor that was confused by our very complex notability policies. Trying to crack this puzzle actually launched me on a journey. I enrolled in WP:NPPSCHOOL and received months of training on notaiblity. Before NPPSCHOOL, as I saw articles I liked getting deleted that had tens of thousands of google hits, I often wondered if AFD was a bit of a sham, and wondered if people just voted however they wanted. After going through all that training, I can confidently say that there is a fair system, just that it's extremely complicated and basically requires training to understand.
The Aliza Kelly AFD is interesting for a couple of reasons. One, astrology is a pseudoscience, so that does raise the bar, the # of GNG passing sources rises from around 3 to around 4 or more. Two, it involves a paid editor. The community hates paid editors. Three, it is getting brigaded. Two and three have created a situation where, if there was any chance of being lenient because she is borderline, that is gone now. By the way, the string of recent delete votes is experienced editors coming in after seeing this thread at the administrator's noticeboard. Hope this helps. Feel free to ask more questions. Happy editing. –Novem Linguae (talk) 18:49, 29 July 2021 (UTC)

1CA problems?Edit

I saw your edit summary over at Talk:COVID-19 lab leak hypothesis‎‎ and thought I'd suggest Archy McArchface, I find it works better/less awkwardly. Cheers, Jr8825Talk 00:26, 30 July 2021 (UTC)

Jr8825, I'll check it out. Thank you very much for the suggestion. –Novem Linguae (talk) 01:11, 30 July 2021 (UTC)
