Chicago 'L'Edit

The reason why I deleted the information on the 2400-series on the Chicago 'L' article is due to them being retired and the information now being out-of-date. The article doesn't have any paragraphs on any other retired series of cars; that information is covered in the Chicago 'L' rolling stock article. ANDROS1337TALK 16:59, 3 November 2014 (UTC) k

The BabysEdit

Thank you Pishcal for taking an interest in - and bringing to an end - the edit war between persons who are believed to be part of a new entity calling themselves The Babys and the historical version of the 70s group which was believed to have been started by Michael Corby and music entrepreneur Adrian Millar. A fresh pair of eyes belonging to a different generation may like to look into the history of this remarkable group which eventually produced two top flight musicians John Waite and Tony Brock. Your judgment may be of value to the two warring parties! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:08, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Pantacles of AthensEdit

It is easy to understand you thought I was kidding when you saw that I created 40 articles in 24 hours. I understand why he came to that conclusion and don't blame you for that, but your error was that you didn't contact me to ask an explanation. But I was serious on this, because it is part of a larege project that I'm working on for quite a while. Your second error was that you nominated 40 articles all together without giving any criteria that would allow to discern between articles to keep and those to delete. I have asked you such criteria from the first day, but you still haven't given any helpful hint in regard. Unfortuntely you were led to nominate Pantacles of Athens and other articles for deletion, because you ignored a number of facts and I want to list them here. So you didn't know or didn't consider that:

  • ... that Pantacles was the first athlete from Athens to win at Olympia.
  • ... that Pantacles was apparently the first to win two running competitions at the same Olympiad.
  • ... that Pantacles was the first athlete in history to defend his title four years later.
  • ... that many others who have been nominated for deletion have similarly interesting specific situations.
  • ... that every article I created has very specific categories in which it appears.
  • ... that many of these articles are (or will be) linked in specific pages, especially those regarding the provenience of the athletes (like Aegium).
  • ... that many of these articles have already been expanded and will see further expansion in the last week (which makes this procedure either obsolete or makes it even more necessary to define criteria that haven't been given.)
  • ... that all articles are on winners of the stadion race, which means they won the most important competition at their respective Olympiad.
  • ... that their names were used by Greek historians and chronologers to name each Olympiad and define the respective period of four years, as is very clearly explained here: Olympiad.
  • ... that these articles tend to complete a work started about three years ago by User:Francois-Pier with his excellent list on the Olympic winners of the Archaic period.
  • ... that this list (and the three following) was never completed as originally planned, due to the large amount of work it requires and the lack of collaboration, and that my work on the articles nominated for cancellation served to correct errors and fill gaps in Francois-Pier's work.
  • ... that all these articles are part of a large project on which I've been working for weeks and which is by now about 2/3 of completion.
  • ... that all these articles are invoked in a calendar module Module:Year in other calendars which is now online on Wikipedia, although not yet complete, because I'm still working hard on assembling the data. I suggest that you verify the output in pages like 776 BC, 600 BC, 500 BC, 496 BC or 4 BC.
  • ... that there is still a number of red links in that calendar, which means that more articles need to be created.
  • ... that all the names mentioned above are still recorded after 2000 years which means they have stood the test of time.
  • ... that Wikipedia thousands of stubs on modern athletes from all nations, who never even made it to the Olympic games, which have never been nominated for deletion, although their articles give much less information than mine and their names are already forgotten after a decade or two, for example Anthony Ketchum and half of the runners on the table in that page.
  • ... that there is a good reason why these articles are not deleted, because applying such a measure would turn hundreds of tables into a barren red desert.
  • ... that it is quite arrogant from a modern point of view to say that Anthony Ketchum (a.o.) deserves a page on Wikipedia and Pantacles of Athens not, because he is more than 2500 years dead.
  • ... that there are very few contributors on Ancient Greek History active on Wikipedia and that we might need help rather than cancellation requests which will have the only effect to drive people away.

I know that some people enjoy undoing other people's work, but I still hope that you do not belong to this category. I therefore repeat that it would be a kind gesture to reconsider your request at the light of the new information and close the procedure, because that would allow me to get back to my work on the calendar data. Thanks for your attention.

--Hyphantes (talk) 09:48, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for copy pasting your argument here, I guess. I addressed what I think of this post over at the Afd, but because you added a few points in I'll just say this: as User:Qwertyus has said, your nomination of Anthony Ketchum was WP:POINTy behaivor, plain and simple. In fact, it's the first example on that page of what IS POINTy behaivor. I guess I'll save the rest for the Afd. Pishcal 12:50, 21 April 2015 (UTC)
You're getting something wrong here: it was you who commented on User:Qwertyus decision, not me. I have never commented on it nor will I, because I can find no wrong in it. So I think you're only trying to make a point in order to avoid responding at the light of the new evidence produced. Could you please comment on this Olympiad or this 696 BC or this 692 BC? Feel free to do it here or over at the other discussion.--Hyphantes (talk) 14:24, 21 April 2015 (UTC)
I hope you don't take offense to this, because it's not meant to be offensive, but is english your first language? I'm not sure you're understanding what I'm saying and I'm having a hard time understanding what you're saying. Yes, it was me who commented on what User:Qwertyus said, not you. I'm not sure how that changes anything. I'm very surprised you don't see how your behavior was WP:POINT: what you did is the first example on that page. Also, I don't understand your "evidence", especially you just pointing to those articles, but that's for the Afd. Pishcal 17:16, 21 April 2015 (UTC)
Yes, you actually have some problem with the English language, because when we say it that usually refers to the last object mentioned. The last object mentioned in the previous sentence was "decision" and I said that I can find no wrong in it, that is the decision (sic!). To say it plain and clear: I agree with it. All the contrary of what you understood!--Hyphantes (talk) 19:10, 21 April 2015 (UTC)
I see now that you're correct, I apologize for the misunderstanding. Pishcal 21:29, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

HJ Martin and SonEdit

Hi, thanks for editing the HJ Martin and Son page. I'm working to address the concerns you flagged. It is no longer an orphan, and I was able to link it to another Wikipedia page. I did try to write this as non-promotionally as possible - was there anything in particular that seemed promotional in nature? I was just trying to list the business components, and based it on other business profiles from within the state like Menards. Still working on finding outside links for some of this material. It's been a few years since I've done these pages and my original account was deleted, probably due to inactivity (MkeLaurie).CdbgLaurie (talk) 21:56, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

@CdbgLaurie: No problem, and I must say that for a new article yours is much above the average quality. I tagged the article as reading like an advert because the article has some excessive information on the company that may not be too relevant in an encyclopedia article, but it's a minor concern. If you need any help, you can put the {{help me}} template on your user page, or you can ask me here on my talk page. Pishcal 22:05, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

Thank you - I'm doing this one as a favor to a friend and not in a professional capacity. It's a process and I told him to expect feedback from an editor. I do not know the etiquette of wiki anymore - will you remove the tags when the issues are corrected or can I do that when I feel I have satisfied the concerns? I personally do not think it is there yet, maybe closer on some elements like its no longer an orphan. Thanks again. CdbgLaurie (talk) 23:17, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

@CdbgLaurie: I'd be fine with you removing the tags when you feel the article has addressed the concerns raised. Pishcal 23:48, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

I've gone in and deleted some of the more tedious information about the company (like the repeated addition of the divisions by name) and tried to revise any phrasing that seemed like overt advertising or promotional. I've also gotten the vast majority of sources switched to secondary sources. The only ones I kept as primary sources were to the company timeline, which is is a factual primary source that really isn't open to any sort of interpretation. Would you consider removing the tags after giving it a quick review? Thank you. CdbgLaurie (talk) 00:43, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

@CdbgLaurie: The page is looking good, and really one of the only problems that I see with it now is minor wording issues. The company history section talks about growth and expansion a lot, and some sections use business language frequently like "new opportunities", "relationships", etc. While these phrases aren't inherently bad or promotional, they can certainly read that way to some people, and I would say that they could be improved. Pishcal 02:20, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

So noted - I made some additional revisions to address this. Thanks again for working with me on this.CdbgLaurie (talk) 12:13, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

I hope this is okay to do this, but I am going to attempt to remove that flag. I believe I have addressed the issues you noted and improved the page. If this is not okay with you, please let me know and I will undo the undo. Thanks again for the guidance!CdbgLaurie (talk) 23:19, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

Robert T. Schimke, M.D.Edit

Re: this: really? I'd say the article contains several credible claims of significance. The fact that the are not cited is a different problem, but speedy was not appropriate. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 16:45, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

@WikiDan61: Yes, that speedy was hasty, looking at a news search the subject of the article is clearly notable. The reason I speedied it is because it's a completely uncited BLP and there was some promotional language. Pishcal 16:48, 28 April 2015 (UTC)
Actually, turns out to be a copyvio of the man's obituary. (So, BLP doesn't apply, but copyvio still does!) WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 16:55, 28 April 2015 (UTC)
@WikiDan61: Doesn't WP:BLP apply to recently deceased people? Either way, thanks for the heads up, I'll be more careful in the future. Pishcal 16:58, 28 April 2015 (UTC)
My reading indicates that WP:BLP only applies to contentious material about recently deceased people (to avoid issues with their survivors, no doubt). Nothing in Dr. Schimke's article was contentions. WP:BLPPROD does not appear to apply to the recently deceased. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 18:23, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

@Pishcal: How do I stop the page Suhani Shah from getting merged or deleted?--Kabir Vaghela (talk) 19:57, 29 April 2015 (UTC)

As of now the article isn't up for deletion. I added that merge template because you performed what's called a cut and paste move, where you copy and paste the content of one page into another. Doing this is undesirable, because it splits the page history of an article, which has to be kept for copyright purposes. Your article isn't up for deletion, an admin will likely just merge the page history from your draft. Pishcal 20:01, 29 April 2015 (UTC) Pishcal 20:02, 29 April 2015 (UTC)

Speed of taggingEdit

Thanks for patrolling new pages, a vital and under-appreciated task, but please don't tag newly created articles with WP:CSD#A1 or WP:CSD#A3 too soon after creation. While things like copyright violations and attack pages need to be tagged at once, new contributors often put in a word or two and then click "Save page" to see how it looks: it is discouraging and BITEy if a speedy-deletion template pops up at once. Arun Shajan M just now doesn't look at all promising, but still you should make a note of the title and wait at least 10 - 15 minutes before tagging. See {{uw-hasty}}. There is general advice about new page patrolling at WP:NPP, and about speedy tagging at WP:10CSD and WP:A7M. Regards, JohnCD (talk) 10:15, 3 May 2015 (UTC)

I have to agree. The article Amanda Kerfstedt was tagged as unreferenced just seconds after it was created, before I had the time to add references. It was also tagged as an unreferenced bio of a living person, when the person, in fact, died almost one hundred years ago. Such mistakes can easily be avoided, if you avoid this high speed. --Aciram (talk) 15:52, 4 May 2015 (UTC)
Ah, I apologize User:Aciram. I would usually recommend creating a draft article to avoid such things, but I recognize that I have made a mistake. Pishcal 15:55, 4 May 2015 (UTC)
No worries, I agree I should have added the references immediately. The tag is seldom relevant for my articles because I usually write articles about people died at least e century ago ^^ Cheers!--Aciram (talk) 15:57, 4 May 2015 (UTC)
Glad there's no hard feelings, and again, I apologize. Thanks, Pishcal 15:59, 4 May 2015 (UTC)

Mass murder / Andreas LubitzEdit

This is a discussion on your recent revert of an edit to include A. Lubitz as an example of a mass murderer. I think with relevations that were released by the French investigation team shortly after the incident and recent relevations of today (rehearsed the autopilot modifications in an earlier flight) it is now established with relatively little doubt that the term 'mass murder' applies.

Some reliable sources that use the term are:

http://www.independent.co.uk/voices/comment/andreas-lubitz-kneejerk-reaction-to-911-enabled-mass-murder-10137173.html http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/germany/11501981/Andreas-Lubitz-inside-the-mind-of-a-mass-killer.html

In addition, a list of spree killers that is directly linked from the article 'Mass murder' contains other instances where a pilot has taken down a plane deliberatedly. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:01, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

Also simple using the definition of the term 'Mass murder' in the same article

1. act of murdering many people, typically simultaneously or over a relatively short period of time [Applies to the incident] 2. murdering four or more persons during an event with no "cooling-off period" between the murders. [Applies to the incident] 3. mass murder typically occurs in a single location where one or more people kill several others [Applies to the incident] 4. Many acts of mass murder end with the perpetrator(s) dying by suicide or suicide by cop. [Applies to the incident] 5. Mass murderers differ from spree killers, who kill at two or more locations with almost no time break between murders and are not defined by the number of victims, and serial killers, who may kill people over long periods of time. Mass murder is the hypernym of genocide, which requires additional criteria. [Applies to the incident]

I do not see any aspects of the Germanwings incident which would allow it to classify it as anything else but an event of mass murder.

(edit conflict)The source you provided didn't refer to him as a mass-murderer. As you now have sources that do, feel free to add it back into the article. Thanks, Pishcal 14:12, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the quick response, I will wait a little more until the investigation is finalized and then maybe re-introduce it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:14, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

Suhani ShahEdit

@Pishcal: Why did you remove the external links from the article Suhani Shah? I see many pages with such edits.--Kabir Vaghela (talk) 05:37, 10 May 2015 (UTC)

@Kabirvaghela: Please read Wikipedia's policy on external links, more specifically the section on links that should be avoided. Links to social networking sites should not be placed in a Wikipedia article, because Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, and not social media. Other articles may have external links, but external links that add to the encyclopedic content of an article are normally considered acceptable. Pishcal 04:42, 11 May 2015 (UTC)

Peter Hancock (CEO)Edit

Hi Pishcal, thanks for your help looking at my sandbox for Peter Hancock. Regarding your edits, I mistakenly linked the wrong citation for the International Advisory Board of BritishAmerican Business. It should have pointed here so I went back and fixed the reference and added it back in. As for his position as head of Key National Banking, as far as I can tell, that was the former name of what is now known as KeyCorp's Key Corporate Bank (link here). That said, I'm not sure how essential that position is to his story, and I'd be interested in hearing your opinion on the matter. Thanks again for the help! --FacultiesIntact (talk) 20:30, 12 May 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the message, I was wondering why that one website was linked twice. As for his position as head of Key National Banking, I agree, I don't really think that's too relevant to the article, and I would just leave it as "he worked with keycorp", or something along those lines. As of now your draft is looking pretty good, but I would definitely ask for someone elses opinion over at WP:RfC or at WP:3O. Pishcal 02:31, 13 May 2015 (UTC)
Hey Pishcal, hope you've been well. If you've got the time, would you mind adding this photo to the BLP? I uploaded it to commons on behalf of AIG, but like to refrain from directly editing the pages I'm involved in. Thanks!--FacultiesIntact (talk) 18:53, 30 September 2015 (UTC)
Sure, Faculties, I'll get right on it, and thank you for asking me, I feel flattered. Pishcal 19:28, 30 September 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the help! Do you think it qualifies to be upgraded from a stub? I think it's a clear improvement from where it was in April, but where the line is drawn is a bit unclear to me.--FacultiesIntact (talk) 20:09, 5 October 2015 (UTC)

AfD for Pantacles of AthensEdit

Good morning, Pishcal. When you have a moment, could you add a bolded "Merge" notation to your comment @12:38, 28 April 2015?

Are you like a mod or something? ShadowTheHedgehog1922 (talk) 17:21, 1 June 2015 (UTC)

I'm not a mod, and I do have a sense of humor. However, as I've said before, Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, and not a place for jokes. While you may find your edits funny, I find them disruptive. I encourage you to stick around and actually try to improve Wikipedia, and maybe you could see where I'm coming from. Pishcal 17:22, 1 June 2015 (UTC)
I do try to improve it. I try to make it appeal to those with a sense of humor. I'm not trying to be a troll, just trying to be funny.
If you want to cut down on spamming, make a jokes/spam page ShadowTheHedgehog1922 (talk) 17:28, 1 June 2015 (UTC) SO how can you yell at me if you aren't even a mod? ShadowTheHedgehog1922 (talk) 17:32, 1 June 2015 (UTC)
Y'all should make a trolling page ShadowTheHedgehog1922 (talk) 17:22, 1 June 2015 (UTC)
Again, Wikipedia is an encyclopedia. It should not be funny or appeal to people's sense of humor. I can imagine that when most people go online and are looking for something funny, Wikipedia is probably not the first place to look. It is, however, the first place many look when they are looking for information on a subject. Also, what do you mean "how can you yell at me if you aren't even a mod"? Just because I myself do not have the power to block you does not mean that if you continue to vandalize pages I can't report you to an administrator. I would prefer not to do this, and so again I encourage you to stick around and try to improve the encyclopedia in a more helpful manner, ie not adding "humor".

Why you deleted my article a second time? I added links to personal pages of the musician

16 June Dear Pishcal I did reply to one of the messages I was left but I have no idea if this was to you or someone else - this whole process of responding seems overly complicated and I have no idea how to respond on my or your page. I din't set up my page - my gallery did and they asked me to check it and alter it as I saw fit. So I did as it wasn't particularly well written or accurate in places but these were very MINOR edits. and I don't understand the problem on this occasion in doing this, despite having read yours and others comments. Yours Janette Kerr

@JanetteKerr: The problem with your gallery setting up your page and you editing it is written out in detail over at the conflict of interest guidelines: when you have a conflict of interest (editing pages about you, someone you know personally or your employer), it may be difficult to write and make your edits in a neutral manner. But don't worry, having a conflict of interest doesn't mean that you can't affect what's on your page; you can by following the instructions over at the conflict of interest guide. Now I know I've posted some links to pages with a lot of information on them, but if you look at anything please look at that guide. Thanks, Pishcal 19:35, 16 June 2015 (UTC)
Oh, and typing four tildes (~) is the way to sign your posts so that others can easily find and leave a message on your talk page, like the message you've left for me. Just type ~~~~ at the end of a post and it will automatically be signed. Remember to not do this in the main article space, however. Pishcal 19:35, 16 June 2015 (UTC)

I know that I am supposed to write to you somewhere else but I cannot work out where! You have left me messages regarding my Wikipedia page _ Janette Kerr - that a gallery set up. I have attempted to update it as the information is out of date but it appears that this is frowned upon. So I suppose all I can do is send the gallery to amend text and ask them to put it up.

I also cannot understand the information about references - it is written in such complicated language. It's all very well for people who use this sort of editing language all the time but not for someone like me.

Croatian Wikipedia is severely biased and promoting far right and fascist opinions onlyEdit

Everyone that tried to write at Croatian Wikipedia will tell you that there is no any way one can freely write well known and quoted facts that are against right wing parties, fascism, in general against biased views of Croatian admins. (talk) 21:08, 23 February 2017 (UTC)

Invitation to New AI-Labelling Campaign for Newcomer SessionsEdit

Hello, I'm reaching out to you because I saw that you signed up as a labelling volunteer at Wikipedia:Labels/Edit quality. I'm starting a new project that builds on Edit quality, to predict Newcomer quality. That is, to predict the damagingness and goodfaithness of "sessions" (multiple related edits) of users within 1 day of their registration. With this AI trained, we could help automatically distinguish betewen productive and unproductive new users. If you wouldn't mind taking a look at this new labelling campaign and label a few sessions I would be very grateful. In addition if you have any feedback or discover any bugs in the process I would appreciate that too. You can find the project page at Wikipedia:Labels/Newcomer_session_quality or go directly to labels.wmflabs.org/ui/enwiki/ and look for the campaign titled "Newcomer Session quality (2018)". Thanks so much!
