Leon Bunn DraftEdit

Thank you for your reponse, I guess Bunn matches these criteria of relevancy: 1. he is a national (amateur) champion (AIBA) and 2. he won Chemistry Cup, which is an AIBA tournament of highest category (see here: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chemiepokal (first sentence translated from German: "The Chemisitry Cup (Chemiepokal) is an international boxing tournament (highest AIBA category) in Olympic boxing [...]"). Greetings and have a nice weekend. --Eazy262 (talk) 09:36, 23 March 2019 (UTC)

Hello there, may I ask you a question? The article was released but it is set to noindex (<meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow"/>) meaning it wont appear in search engines. Is there a specific reason why it cannot be crawled by search engines (as I havent seen this before on wikipedia)? Is it maybe because it used to be a draft on my personal sandbox (which is/was set to noindex? Thanks for your time, sincerely --Eazy262 (talk) 11:36, 3 April 2019 (UTC)
Oh nvm, I already found the answer^^ --Eazy262 (talk) 11:39, 3 April 2019 (UTC)
The article in question is Leon Bunn.

Your draft article, Draft:Stephen John LeeEdit

 

Hello, Robert McClenon. It has been over six months since you last edited the Articles for Creation submission or Draft page you started, "Stephen John Lee".

In accordance with our policy that Wikipedia is not for the indefinite hosting of material deemed unsuitable for the encyclopedia mainspace, the draft has been nominated for deletion. If you plan on working on it further, or editing it to address the issues raised if it was declined, simply edit the submission and remove the {{db-afc}}, {{db-draft}}, or {{db-g13}} code.

If your submission has already been deleted by the time you get there, and you wish to retrieve it, you can request its undeletion by following the instructions at this link. An administrator will, in most cases, restore the submission so you can continue to work on it.

Thanks for your submission to Wikipedia, and happy editing. Liz Read! Talk! 03:42, 26 March 2019 (UTC)

User:Liz - Huh. Huh. If it had been my draft, the notification would have been useless. It wasn't my draft. I assume that I moved it from a sandbox to draft space, and if it had been my draft I wouldn't have had an hour in which to claim it. It wasn't my draft. Huh. Robert McClenon (talk) 04:21, 26 March 2019 (UTC)
Gotta live twinkle. The notification tells you about REFUND. Legacypac (talk) 08:51, 26 March 2019 (UTC)
User:Legacypac - Twinkle is mostly good on things like this. It is a feature and not a bug that it mentions REFUND, which should address the complaint, that I considered silly, by Kvng about quick G13s, which this was. My point here is that the deletion was so quick that even a regular editor who actually was logged on might not respond, but I don't consider the extreme quickness either a bug or a feature, just the way it is. But Kvng and I have different attitudes; they are very sympathetic to editors whom I think are clueless if not self-serving. Robert McClenon (talk) 17:59, 26 March 2019 (UTC)

Undid revision 889718442 by Gkery1 (talk)Edit

Request on 16:08:16, 27 March 2019 for assistance on AfC submission by PurplewriterEdit


I added the info box from the entry that you showed me. What else do you suggest I do with this entry? I don't understand why the editor/CEO of a national magazine who has co-authored several books is not considered "notable" enough to get an entry. I'm disappointed that it's not being accepted, particularly since I have read that Wikipedia recognizes that entries on people are overwhelmingly on men and want mores entries on women. If men in the Jewish media (e.g., Gary Rosenblatt, J.J. Goldberg) have their own entries, why can't she? Purplewriter (talk) Purplewriter (talk) 16:08, 27 March 2019 (UTC)

User:Purplewriter - First, please read WP:OTHERSTUFFEXISTS. The existence of other stuff in Wikipedia does not mean that a particular article should be accepted or kept. It sometimes means that other articles should be deleted. Second, in this case, there is more information on Rosenblatt and Goldberg than on Epstein. Third, if you think that Epstein is sufficiently notable for a stand-alone article, you may move the draft to article space. Robert McClenon (talk) 19:54, 27 March 2019 (UTC)

I had added a little more material and I've moved to article.Purplewriter (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 14:57, 28 March 2019 (UTC)

User:Purplewriter - You moved the draft to Draft:Nadine D. Epstein for some reason. Then you promoted it to article space, as you said. User:Onel5969 has moved it back to draft space as undersourced. Please discuss further with User:Onel5969. I am no longer trying to argue either that it should be in draft space or that it should be in article space. At this point the situation is beginning to look to me like a move-war. My own view is that the issue of whether it should be in article space or in draft space is ready to be resolved by an Articles for Deletion discussion, but that is only my opinion. I do not like move-warring and do not think that move-warring is a useful way to decide whether a page is ready for article space. Robert McClenon (talk) 14:56, 30 March 2019 (UTC)
[[[User:Robert McClenon|Robert McClenon]] Correct -- you suggested on March 27 that I move it to an article if I thought it was ready. I added a little info and did just that. I did not intend to do "move-warring." I will discuss with User:Onel5969. Purplewriter (talk) 15:15, 31 March 2019 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Lunar RepublicEdit

 

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute to Wikipedia, introducing inappropriate pages, such as Lunar Republic, is not in accordance with our policies. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. Under section G3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, the page has been nominated for deletion.

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.

Ah - I kind of feel I should apologise for the CSD - apologies if I've spoiled an April 1st joke. Sorry if I came across as a bit humourless there. GirthSummit (blether) 16:41, 1 April 2019 (UTC)
User:Girth Summit - No apology required. The rules say that one shouldn't do April Fool in article space or Help space. Robert McClenon (talk) 16:45, 1 April 2019 (UTC)
Yes - but if I'd spotted that it was your article, I might have dropped you a note here pointing that out rather than CSDing it, in the spirit of DTTR. If I'd racked my brain, I might have even been able to think of a humorous way of saying it... GirthSummit (blether) 16:51, 1 April 2019 (UTC)

Section headings at case requestEdit

Hi Robert. In order to keep things uniform and due to other recent kerfuffles over section headings, I've removed your sub-headings at the current case request as a clerk action. Sub-headings also make it a tad more annoying for the clerk team to check word limit, etc., which has been an issue in this case request. Rest assured that, even without the sub-headings, your comments are organized such that ArbCom can fully understand and evaluate them. Please let me know if you have any questions. ~ Rob13Talk 04:33, 3 April 2019 (UTC)

Hello! 2 quick things regarding the WP:DRN, as we seem to be the only volunteers active at the moment.

  1. I'll be going on holiday. I informed the participants, but if you would be able to take over (and willing to), that would be awesome. It seems to be going in the right direction.
  2. If you close a case, please (i) place {{DRN archive top}} above {{drn filing editor}} (as per WP:DRN/V) and (ii) remove <!-- [[User:DoNotArchiveUntil]] xx:xx, xx (month) 2019 (UTC) -->{{User:ClueBot III/DoNotArchiveUntil|xxxxxxxxxx}}<!-- REMEMBER TO REMOVE THE PREVIOUS COMMENT WHEN CLOSING THIS THREAD! -->, so that the bot will automatically archive it.

Draft:Jeff Hull (artist)Edit

1. Doesn't look like it's anywhere near properly formatted. 2. It's weird how it talks about Nonchalance and Nonchalance's goals very quickly rather than his work and the person in question. 3. The main issue I have is that it's written more about his businesses than about him.

Draft for GPV web-siteEdit

Dear Robert McClenon

We would like to publish the draft of GPV Int. on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:GPV_International_A/S

Could you please give us further instruction of what we can do and how we can revise the text to make it suitable.

We have a large competitor that features also a site on Wikipedia, and structure and content is obviously quite similar: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zollner
(which, by the way, has no external citations or references but just one link to their web-site)

And on top GPV already has a web-site on the Danish Wiki:
https://da.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPV_International_A/S

How can we achieve the goal? Thank you for your support in advance.

PortalsEdit

DS will never be applied against an Admin and several of the worst offenders are admins. On another note, this may prove useful to you Wikipedia:Miscellany for deletion/Portal MFD Results Legacypac (talk) 20:24, 6 April 2019 (UTC)

User:Legacypac - You forgot to provide a heading, but you weren't responding to a post by a blocked user. I will reply shortly. Thank you for the metrics. Robert McClenon (talk) 20:40, 6 April 2019 (UTC)

You may decide to put up another proposal after the supervote on X3 that turned 22 in favor amd 14 against into a no. There is a an auto counter at List of Portals that says 5,293 portals now. Update 29 [1] Feb 13 said 5,705 portals which should be near the peak. There are over 600+ pages (nearly all portals) in Category:Miscellaneous_pages_for_deletion so maybe 10% of the peak number of portals is up for deletion and about 7% of the peak have been deleted already. I know your a numbers guy so thought this might interest you. Legacypac (talk) 04:34, 7 April 2019 (UTC)

Now 5,112 portals and 1923 pages at Category:MFD Legacypac (talk) 07:27, 8 April 2019 (UTC)
User:Legacypac - Does 5112 mean the total number of portals in portal space? Does 1923 mean the total number of pages in portal space that have been listed at MFD (in which case the actual number of nominations is less because some of the nominations are bundles)? Robert McClenon (talk) 10:42, 8 April 2019 (UTC)
The larger # is pulled from Category:All portals which counts actual portals and redirects but not subpages. The category explains how it works. Category:MFD is any page currently with an MfD tag, which should include all bundled pages as far as I have seen. There are far fewer discussions of course. Legacypac (talk) 10:50, 8 April 2019 (UTC)

Guess the portal before clicking the link ... that the slipper sea cucumber is avoided by most predatory fish, crabs, and gastropod molluscs, but is preyed on by starfish, especially the leather star? Legacypac (talk) 05:55, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

User:Legacypac - Well, I knew it should be Portal:Echinoderms or Portal:Starfish, so I guessed it would be Portal:Cucumbers. Robert McClenon (talk) 12:22, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

Seeking advice regarding dispute resolutionEdit

Hey Robert, you're listed as a volunteer on WP:DR/N, so I was wondering if you could answer a question for me. There is a quite vociferous discussion ongoing at Talk:Layla Moran regarding whether a bold edit should be kept on a WP:BLP. The discussion is ongoing in part, but it seems like things are pretty entrenched and tempers are becoming flared. Is it too early to seek dispute resolution if the discussion is ongoing, but it is clear that no consensus will be reached? Domeditrix (talk) 10:38, 7 April 2019 (UTC)

User:Domeditrix - It is definitely not too early to see dispute resolution. The case is not appropriate for a Third Opinion because there have been more than two editors, although some of them have not been real editors. You could either ask for input at the BLP noticeboard, which sometimes works and sometimes does not, or request moderated discussion at the dispute resolution noticeboard, or post a Request for Comments to get consensus as to whether to keep or delete the section. I would suggest doing something while the article is semi-protected, because there is no need to try to involve the unregistered editors. (My own guess is that the suckpoppets are just either xenophobic or misogynistic, but that is my guess.) Robert McClenon (talk) 16:09, 7 April 2019 (UTC)

Why am I being ignored?Edit

Hi. I have left numerous messages on your page and not received a single response. My sandbox creation has not been reviewed in nearly two months, and any attempts to ask for help is met with no response. I ask you again, Robert McClenon, please either respond to this message or approve my ignored article. Thank you.

User:Livonia ainovil - First, did you read the notice at the top of my talk page, that says that I do not usually follow your submission through the approval process? It has been about six weeks since I declined your draft, and I have not researched it fully, but my recollection is that I posted to the Teahouse, which is where you should be asking for advice. There are many drafts waiting to be reviewed, and simply yelling louder is not the most effective way to get your draft reviewed. I suggest that you ask for advice at the Teahouse again. I also suggest that you read in Wikipedia, there is no deadline and learn to be patient. Robert McClenon (talk) 15:53, 7 April 2019 (UTC)

Draft: Daylight EntertainmentEdit

Dear Robert, First of all thank you for your time to review my draft: Daylight Entertainment again. Followed your instructions in the declined reason, I deleted two off-standard sections, which I think contain most of "promotional" words and tones. What remains is data I collected from wiki and other independent source like imdb. To reply your query, one reason is: I started this editing because I found there was only a Chinese page, but no English page. What I did was simply translating. However if the Chinese page wasn't precise, then it's hard for the translating to be qualified. I didn't realize this until you and other reviewers helped. The other thing is about the source: I tried very hard to find reliable English source in order to meet the standard, as well as to reduce the time of reviewing. Unfortunately, I couldn't find much. That is not because the subject is not important to be covered. It's only because most of covering are in Chinese. For example, the "Works" section is the data I found through wiki and imdb. It's not hard at all to find the subject's name. But they are all fragments, not articles. In conclusion, I deleted all expression sections to make sure there is not promotion, and left date hoping they might be helpful in future for other editors. If this is still not working, I will keep revising. This was my first editing and I want to make it better. Just like people say: things are dificult before they are easy. Thank you again for your time and helping. Best, Mclinyang (talk) 09:08, 10 April 2019 (UTC)

Maybe About Steven Benjamin DamelinEdit

Hi, I have recently created GEAPSU for Steven Benjamin Damelin, a well known academic. The article providers correct references for everything. The article is not long. It is short and factual. By looking at Damelin on the web it is clear immediately how well known he is. Myself (George Andrews) have compared my page with 100's others in academia and find Damelin's article much better in most cases. The later articles lack references in many ways. Can you edit this article and accept it? I have as you suggest asked the TeaHouse. Thank you very much. Geapsu (talk) 17:55, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

User:Geapsu - It might be a good idea to get some more experience with Wikipedia in general before trying to submit a draft article. Is there a reason why you posted this message at the top of my user talk page? Can you read the instructions, which say to use the New Section feature to post to the bottom of the page? Did you say that I said not to post at the top of the page, because it might be ignored? Robert McClenon (talk) 21:08, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

Your articlesEdit

Hi! I went through the list of the articles you have created - apparently you have a lot of experience in it. That is why I am asking. Why some of them actually have no verifiable references? Some links don't work at all. What is the purpose of such articles on Wikipedia? Examples: Clothru, Bile_(Irish_legend), Carr_Collins_Sr. What is this article Falls_Church_(disambiguation) about? Best regards Dariakupila (talk) 07:57, 14 April 2019 (UTC)

User:Dariakupila - I wasn't employed by Clothru or Bile, and I didn't claim that they existed. I wasn't employed by Carr Collins Sr., although I do claim that he existed. I will research them later today. A disambiguation article is a disambiguation article. Robert McClenon (talk) 08:59, 14 April 2019 (UTC)

Robert McClenon do you have a proof that I was employed or paid? Do you have a proof that you were not employed? Why do you decline other people's articles but submit yourself without proper references? Dariakupila (talk) 09:04, 14 April 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for the Kilkenny catsEdit

Ah, thanks for this[3]. That's v sweet.

I think that in the medium-to-long-term (by which I mean weeks to months), narrow-topic portals like Portal:Kilkenny should go as part of a much-needed systematic trimming of overly-narrow portals. But I hope that this well-made and well-maintained portal on a small topic will be in the last batch to be zapped, just because its quality is such a notable contrast to the abysmal nature of many others on the chopping board.

As we thin the forest of junk, it's handy to be able to point out that narrow portals don't have to be actually broken. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 16:02, 21 April 2019 (UTC)

At some point, we need to propose sanctions against at least one member of the portal platoon and probably two or three. Unfortunately, sanctions may wind up hitting one opponent of portals. At some point, we need real Portal Guidelines that aren't just vague. Either that, or a pre-review process, or something. Robert McClenon (talk) 21:14, 22 April 2019 (UTC)

Closed discussion?Edit

Hi Robert, I'm sorry that I was not able to comment on the dispute resolution (about Casualties of the Iraq War) over the holiday weekend.

The article has been at an impasse for about a year now, and repeated attempts on the article talk page to make progress have gone nowhere.

A tag has been placed on User:Anku1992/sandbox, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, group, product, service, person, or point of view and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become encyclopedic. Please read the guidelines on spam and Wikipedia:FAQ/Organizations for more information.

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.

I implemented the changes you indicated to the best of my capacity; please let me know what you think. Regarding the issue of the organization's notability, in my opinion the Fellowship of Friends matches these criteria of relevancy: 1. The organization has been featured in several major newspapers (the Los Angeles Times, the San Francisco Chronicle and the Sacramento Bee among others) over the 48 years of its existence because of its controversial nature, 2. The organization has 1,600 current members and 15,000 former members, and 3. Of the list of podcasts on 42 famous cults on the Parcast web site (see https://www.parcast.com/cults), only the Fellowship of Friends and the River Road Fellowship don’t have an article on Wikipedia (in bold on the list below). By the way, I'm working on a draft for an article on the River Road Fellowship and I would like you to review it if you have the time.

LIST OF PODCASTS ON FAMOUS CULTS ON PARCAST

The Manson Family (Charles Manson), Heaven’s Gate (Marshall Applewhite & Bonnie Nettles), Movement for the Restoration of the Ten Commandments of God (Credonia Mwerinde & Joseph Kibweteere), The Family (Anne Hamilton Byrne), The Ant Hills Kids (Roch Thériault), The Children of God (David Berg), FLDS (Warren Jeffs), Aum Shinrikyo (Shoko Asahara), The Branch Davidians (David Koresh), The Peoples Temple (Jim Jones), True Russian Orthodox Church (Pyotr Kuznetsov), Nuwaubian Nation (Dwight York), Sect of Nacozari (Silvia Meraz), Apostles of Infinite Love (Michel Collin & Jean-Gaston Tremblay), Church of Euthanasia (Chris Korda), Rajneeshpuram (Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh & Ma Anand Sheela), The Brethren (Jimmie T. Roberts), Twelve Tribes (Gene Spriggs (Yoneq)), Oneida Community (John Humphrey Noyes), The Moonies (Sun Myung Moon), The Narcosatanists (Adolfo Constanzo & Sara Aldrete), Leopard Society), Order of the Solar Temple (Joseph Di Mambro), Raëlism (Claude Vorilhon), Church Universal and Triumphant (Elizabeth Clare Prophet), Sahaja Yoga Movement (Nirmala Srivastava), The Hernandez Brothers’s Cult (Magdalena Solís), Lumpa Church (Alice Lenshina), Mankind Project (Arthur Bell), The Kirtland Cult (Jeffrey Lundgren), The Church of the Last Testament (Sergey Anatolyevitch Torop (Vissarion)), Church of Satan (Anton LaVey), The Way International (Victor Paul Wierwille), Freemasonry (The cult that built America), Kashi Ashram (Ma Jaya), Fellowship of Friends (Robert Earl Burton), River Road Fellowship (Victor Barnard), The Sons of Freedom / Doukhobors (Peter V. Verigin), The Workers’ Institute (Aravindan Balakrishnan), New Vrindaban (Kirtanananda Swami), “The Source Family” (James Baker), “Eastern Lightning” (Zhao Weishan)

Any thoughts? UltraEdit (talk) 16:41, 24 April 2019 (UTC)
User:UltraEdit - Perhaps you thought that by posting to the top of my user page you would get my attention before the messages at the bottom in the usual arrangement. It doesn't work that way. Did you read the banner that displays at the top of my talk page that cautions you that top-posted messages may not be seen? I didn't see your message for ten days. I will look at it later today, but if you use the New Section tab in the way that it is intended to be used, you will post to the bottom where I am looking for messages. Robert McClenon (talk) 17:23, 24 April 2019 (UTC)
User:Robert McClenon I assure you that it was not my intention to attract your attention when I posted my comment on the top of the page -- if that were the case I wouldn't have waited 11 days to ask you if you had any thoughts. At any rate, I apologize for my mistake and I'll make sure I post at the bottom in the future. By the way, the banner that you said is displayed at the top of your talk page is not showing on my screen (see https://imgur.com/a/y3xzlYL). Thank you for your help. UltraEdit (talk) 23:05, 26 April 2019 (UTC)
User:UltraEdit - The banner only displays when you are editing my talk page. But in general, do not post to the top of a talk page. If you use the New Section tab, you should post to the bottom of a talk page the way that you should. Robert McClenon (talk) 00:28, 27 April 2019 (UTC)

Question Regarding NotabilityEdit

Hey Robert - thanks for your time in reviewing my draft. I was seeking clarification to our denial. Was it related to objectivity, or are the links used as references (included below), not sufficient to show sufficient coverage to warrant a page.

Thanks

The draft in question is Draft:Rapunzl Investments LLC. Do you have a conflict of interest? Please do not dump links onto my talk page to ask me to read them. The draft should speak for itself. However, my decline was based on the definition of corporate notability, which has to do with what third-party reliable sources say about the company. Your draft summarizes what the company says about itself. Your draft is not about what third parties say about the company. I didn't have to read the references, because the draft wasn't about what third parties say about the company. Robert McClenon (talk) 04:45, 27 April 2019 (UTC)

Your draft article, Draft:Robin KermodeEdit

 

Hello, Robert McClenon. It has been over six months since you last edited the Articles for Creation submission or Draft page you started, "Robin Kermode".

In accordance with our policy that Wikipedia is not for the indefinite hosting of material deemed unsuitable for the encyclopedia mainspace, the draft has been nominated for deletion. If you plan on working on it further, or editing it to address the issues raised if it was declined, simply edit the submission and remove the {{db-afc}}, {{db-draft}}, or {{db-g13}} code.

If your submission has already been deleted by the time you get there, and you wish to retrieve it, you can request its undeletion by following the instructions at this link. An administrator will, in most cases, restore the submission so you can continue to work on it.

Thanks for your submission to Wikipedia, and happy editing. JMHamo (talk) 08:08, 27 April 2019 (UTC)

Draft: Copyright of MemesEdit

Hello, my article was recently declined because the subject matter already exists. I believe interest meme would not be the appropriate page for the article because the article focuses more on the law of copyright in US and India rather than the type and uses of memes, which is covered on the internet meme page. In terms of sources, I have only used Wikipedia to link to certain catchphrases and not used it as a reference. The article uses a lot of terms that form of copyright legal discource which have been adequately explained on Wikipedia previously and it would be redundant to reproduce the same in this article also. The other sources used in the article are from published pieces and cannot be sufficiently verified. I hope you reconsider my article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by DoYouEvenMemeBro (talkcontribs) 16:59, 28 April 2019 (UTC)

User:DoYouEvenMemeBro - What title do you think that it should have? Do you know how to rename a draft, or should I rename it for you? Robert McClenon (talk) 13:53, 2 May 2019 (UTC)
DoYouEvenMemeBro, there is another draft called Draft:Meme copyright issues that was reviewed prior to the creation of this set. You should merge that information to that draft if you think the topic is still notable enough for its own article, but it's possible that it could be summarized in a section under Internet Memes.

Regarding my article I created on Kamini DubeEdit

Hey Robert,

First of all I would like to thank you for letting me know where I did not follow wiki terms for an article. And as I have seen in your user page you have created many articles, thus I would request your help in creating an article for mine.

Also I wanted to understand, you said that my article has be submitted twice. so please let me know how to deal with that?

I hope you are reading this now and would revert as soon as possible.

Thanks, User: Callmesiddie — Preceding unsigned comment added by Callmesiddie (talkcontribs) 23:09, 29 April 2019 (UTC)

User:Callmesiddie - You requested that one of the two copies of the draft be deleted, and it was deleted. Another reviewer reviewed the other draft, and agrees with me that it is still very non-neutral and promotional. Please discuss it with the other reviewer, or ask for advice at the Teahouse.

Patrick HanlonEdit

Hello,

I removed what you said were marketing buzzwords, and added more citations/removed external links. For the two books, I replaced the Amazon links with ones from Simon and Shulster and Pearson. Can you please approve this, or let me know if anything else is needed in order to do so? Thank you.--JamesC33401 (talk) 02:13, 30 April 2019 (UTC)

User:JamesC33401 - You have not resubmitted your draft. If you were to resubmit it, I would decline it. The references do not appear to provide in-depth independent coverage. I suggest that you ask for advice at the Teahouse. Robert McClenon (talk) 02:24, 30 April 2019 (UTC)

WP:AE vs WP:AN/IEdit

Hi, I saw your comment at my request for arbitration (SashiRolls). Before I read that I had already continued the exisintg AN/I discussion. My thought was that because my concern is related to conduct outside of the context of any content or subject area that the appropriate venues are AN/I and arbitration. Is my understanding incorrect? Thanks. --Kolya Butternut (talk) 09:48, 1 May 2019 (UTC)

User:Kolya Butternut - Is the conduct related to American politics after 1932? Robert McClenon (talk) 14:12, 1 May 2019 (UTC)
Previous sanctions against User:SashiRolls have been the result of conduct in articles concerning American politics after 1932, and of User:Snooganssnoogans has been reported for adding copyright-violating material to articles involving American politics after 1932. I concur with User:Tryptofish that Arbitration Enforcement is a better forum. I see that SashiRolls was previously blocked at Arbitration Enforcement. Robert McClenon (talk) 14:19, 1 May 2019 (UTC)
Someone else's problem. Discuss on someone else's talkpage. Robert McClenon (talk) 00:23, 2 May 2019 (UTC)
@Kolya Butternut: I agree with Robert McClenon. I also am very sympathetic to your concerns, and I would be happy to offer advice if you want. You should consider what kind of result you would like to get out of it. One possibility is to have an interaction ban between you and Sashi Rolls. That is something you can still get out of ANI (although it is more likely to be two-way than one-way). At the time that I write this, no one has really replied to you at ANI, and my guess is that the community is fed up with the wall of text there and very likely will not do anything there unless there is a specific proposal to act on. If you would like, I will propose the IBAN and I think it would be likely to pass.
On the other hand, there are very good arguments to get stricter sanctions imposed on SashiRolls, and that is simply not going to happen at ANI, given that it hasn't happened already. For that, you would have to go to WP:AE. The fact that you already said that it is not about content may be used against you there, but it probably won't be enough to shut it down. The conduct clearly grows out of Am Pol, and SashiRolls would stand a good chance of getting a long block and/or a topic ban, but it will be a somewhat ugly battle there. You would have to be the filing party (not me, although I can give you advice about how to post it). I'm watching here, to see what you think. --Tryptofish (talk) 16:59, 1 May 2019 (UTC)
Robert, could you dig up an example of one of these alleged copyright violations I've made? I've never seen you involved with these guys before; I'd be very careful about it... there's a lot of people watching this case right now as I understand it (the governance thread at Wikipediocracy where I requested a hearing back before Halloween has over 4000 views this week because Dysklyver popped it up the other day), including -- most likely -- some journalists. If I were you, I wouldn't get into the spotlight in order to be shown making stuff up: as far as I know nobody has ever, i.e. not even once, accused me of copyvio, not even without evidence. Thanks for "mentioning" me above so I'd know there was plotting going on against me on Labor Day. I hope you're having a good one. SashiRolls t · c 17:32, 1 May 2019 (UTC)
My error. User:SashiRolls has been sanctioned for personal attacks. User:Snooganssnoogans has been reported for copyright violations. I identified the wrong person for the wrong offense, although both are offenders, and it is still an Arbitration Enforcement matter. Robert McClenon (talk) 17:55, 1 May 2019 (UTC)
Actually, the latter has been reported and sanctioned for a lot more than copyright violations. But I'll let y'all do your own Labor Day research. SashiRolls t · c 18:13, 1 May 2019 (UTC)
You have just given me four more months than you think you have given me. Robert McClenon (talk) 18:36, 1 May 2019 (UTC)
You mean y'all work on May Day in the US? Who knew? ^^ SashiRolls t · c 19:20, 1 May 2019 (UTC)
"Who knew?" Americans knew. Labor Day (US) is the first Monday in September. Robert McClenon (talk) 20:23, 1 May 2019 (UTC)
@Tryptofish: I am not seeking an IBAN. Our interaction has been limited to the AN/I thread (and his recent talk page comment where he seems to be accusing me of behavior related to the "Cross Affair". I still feel left with questions.... I understand the conduct "grows" out of Am Pol, but it's so indirect; SashiRolls attacked me at AN/I because I was showing that he was making false accusations at Snooganssnoogans which were related to behavior at Am Pol (and WP:Daily Mail). If everyone tells me AE has jurisdiction over this sort of thing then I would consider that. You suggested that I consider what kind of result I would like to get; I feel very uncomfortable asking for a specific result; that seems like something that should be decided by the community, but my impression is that this is a personality problem that is not limited to passion relating to political topics. If that is accurate then I would assume a site ban would be appropriate, but I have not thoroughly researched SashiRolls' site-wide conduct, nor do I know whether it is my place to do so. I now see that SashiRolls has edited the AN/I thread, so I will have to continue this later. Kolya Butternut (talk) 20:37, 1 May 2019 (UTC)
@Kolya Butternut: That new thing at ANI is just trolling. I'm going to try to ignore it, and let others evaluate it, and I recommend that you not reply to it either. Given your wishes, I won't propose the IBAN. If you go to AE, it's up to the admins what kind of ban, if any, they hand out, so you cannot really request a site ban. Being at Wikipedia tends to come with crackpots saying obnoxious things about one, so sometimes it's best to just let it pass. I can assure you that no one in their right mind takes seriously the stuff that SashiRolls said about you. --Tryptofish (talk) 22:21, 1 May 2019 (UTC)

Hi, Robert. I just want to thank you for suggesting a block. In my opinion, you were subjected to a lot of pushback that you did not deserve. Best wishes, --Tryptofish (talk) 17:56, 3 May 2019 (UTC)

User:Tryptofish - Thank you. I think that there is a class of productive but uncivil editors who are envied by some other editors, who would like to be productive uncivil editors when they grow up. The presence of these editors as role models is one reason why they are unblockable, which actually means unbannable. They have lengthy block logs with frequent unblocks. Legacypac is one of these editors, but is a little different because he is not a "content creator" but works behind the scenes, which is why he hasn't been unblocked yet. I didn't realize that Sashi is one of these editors, but apparently he is also. And that's the way it is. Robert McClenon (talk) 01:35, 4 May 2019 (UTC)
Actually, I'm starting to see some subtypes of these behavioral categories that are emerging more recently. A decade or so ago, the so-called "vested contributors" were incivil editors who were nonetheless outstanding at content creation. There are differences emerging now, as well as some new types of low-quality editors who like to hang around ANI and comment on almost every thread, effectively arguing that the low standards of discourse that are common at other websites should also be the new standard here, sort of like they had never grown up with a sense of talking to real people face-to-face. I'm still mulling this over, but I intend to comment on it more in the near future. --Tryptofish (talk) 19:06, 4 May 2019 (UTC)

Draft: Edwina DunnEdit

Hi Robert, thank you for your time to review my draft: User:Edwina Dunn. I followed your instructions in the declined reason, I added to references and deleted words of "promotional" tones. I would like to know specifically what more needs to be done to the page to make it publishable? It is now being considered for deletion. I would like to know exactly where I am going wrong if you would be so kind?

User:Edwina Dunn - The draft in question is Draft:Edwina Dunn. Please follow the instructions for Miscellany for Deletion. Please also read the autobiography policy and the conflict of interest policy. Please also be aware that it is not always possible to make a draft on a subject "publishable" if the subject is not notable, and that most editors cannot write a neutral draft about a subject where they have a conflict of interest. I will take another look at the draft and advise further. It would be a good idea to ask for advice at the Teahouse. Robert McClenon (talk) 13:57, 2 May 2019 (UTC)
User:Edwina Dunn - You said that the draft is not an autobiography. Are you Edwina Dunnn, and is the draft about yourself? If so, the draft is an autobiography, and saying that it is not is tendentious. If it is, then please be aware that Wikipedia has found, first, that an individual is not the best judge of their own biographical notability, and, second, that an individual usually cannot write a neutral draft about herself. Robert McClenon (talk) 14:04, 2 May 2019 (UTC)

Robert, thank you so much for getting back to me. I entitled it Edwina Dunn but that is not my name (sorry, I'm Anthony Thompson) I have now explained this in the talk section of my page along with a conflict of interest. Despite the connection, all information is factual, referenced, and written with a neutral point of view. All your time and feedback is much appreciated!

Global Hotelier DraftEdit

Thanks for the information regarding my posted article's infringement of policy and guidelines. I will rework the article in hopes to meet the rules of this platform. The last publication received a speedy delete notice. Will this be in place even if I change the content to be in line with the guidelines? Like a black mark on the title of the article that will be dismissed out of hand in the future? I certainly hope not.

Again thanks for any help I can get or advice that may lead to the successful publication of my first addition to Wiki.

Sincerely,

Christopher Roper. Draft:Edwina_Dunn

User:ChristopherRoper - The 'new section' feature is available on most talk pages including my talk page, and adds a section to the bottom (not the top) of the page.

Request on 21:57:48, 3 May 2019 for assistance on AfC submission by PassaniEdit


Hi, Stefano Vaccara is a very respected journalist in Italy and elsewhere. What makes him notable is the fact that he was the target of a lawsuit by Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi a few years back, but in addition to that he is also a published author that explained the dynamics behind JFK's assassination.

Honestly, I see people that have pages in wikipedia that are way less worth than Mr. Vaccara. I have added all the key references (including an interview on RAI, the Italian State TV) to the article and the Amerigo price which he received lasy year. I hope this makes the article good enough.

User:Passani - I see that you have edited the draft since I declined it. As the statement that you read when you edit my talk page says, I do not normally follow a submission through the approval process. I will let another reviewer review it. You may also ask for advice at the Teahouse. However, it is not useful to explain on a reviewer's talk page why a draft should be accepted. The draft should speak for itself.

House of Marley ArticleEdit

Dear Robert McClenon,


I am writing in regards to the House of Marley article. I am currently a student at the University of Derby for the Writing and Publishing BA, and for an assignment we had to create our own Wikipedia articles for a set deadline. I am also NOT employed by the company, so this is not a self-serving or deliberately promotional article.


I apologise for the page duplication, it was a misunderstanding — I thought the submission form was suggesting I also make a 'draft' page as well as a 'user' page, and was not trying to improve my chances for acceptance.


I would be deeply appreciative if you could give me some constructive feedback for the article — I made a mention on the user/draft talk pages regarding the tone and a potential to sound persuasive, which you commented on. Besides this, what else would you suggest I change?


If you could respond as soon as possible that would also be much appreciated, only due to my deadline restraints.


Thank you,

What did I do wrong? NigelNgard11476 (talk) 22:05, 8 May 2019 (UTC) ngard11476Ngard11476 (talk) 22:04, 8 May 2019 (UTC)

User:Ngard11476 - I don't have the original article, with the permission, in front of me. However, first, as I recall, the permission was a standard copyright release that would permit publication of the copyrighted content in Wikipedia. That isn't the same as a Creative Commons release, which releases the copyright as a copyleft for limited reuse by all in the world, not only by Wikipedia. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously and does not accept a limited permission that is only for its own use. That is why it was still subject to deletion as not consistent with Wikipedia's copyright requirements. Second, even if you had provided a Creative Commons release, the purpose of the draft was still promotional, intended to promote a particular mode of family therapy. Third, after I finish writing this reply, I will check whether you have made the proper conflict of interest disclosure. It seems that your only objective is to try to use Wikipedia to advertise your particular style of family therapy. You may ask other editors for advice at the Teahouse, but I think that they will agree with me. I will caution you that continuing to try to push your article into Wikipedia may result in a block.

I don't see a conflict of interest disclosure. Robert McClenon (talk) 02:55, 9 May 2019 (UTC)
User:Jimfbleak - Perhaps you may want to add something, or to agree or disagree with me. Robert McClenon (talk) 02:55, 9 May 2019 (UTC)
Thanks Robert. The "permission" was claimed in an email to me, so nothing amounting to a waiver on their website or an OTRS ticket. Anyone can claim at the bottom of an aricle that they have permission, so that's worthless too. In response, I posted this on Ngard11476's talk page, stating exactly what you have said regarding spamming, COI, WP:RS and so on. It's a promotional text dump that I would delete on sight even if it wasn't copyright. This editor appears to have ignored everything that they have been told, and approached you to see if you were more accommodating than me! I fear this may not end well if they continue to ignore our advice, Cheers Jimfbleak - talk to me? 05:44, 9 May 2019 (UTC)

Deletion of Draft:Parmish VermaEdit

Hello sir, I am fairly new to Wikipedia and this draft is my second contribution on Wikipedia. Parmish Verma is a popular Punjabi singer and actor in India. All of his videos on YouTube cross 100 million views in a week. I am a follower of his work and I was surprised to see that he does not have presence on Wikipedia. That is why I wrote this article. I have searched for relevant news articles and accordingly written this article based on the facts available on news portals. I have not picked up any anonymous content from any portal which is not trustworthy. If you go through his social media profiles, you will realize that he is really popular in India. Kindly guide me to edit the article. Since I am new to Wikipedia, it will also be a learning for me. I love music and movies and I am looking forward to write and contribute more to Wikipedia around these topics mostly from India. Looking forward for your support! Best Regards! Abhishekbiswas82 talk 11:48 am, 9 May 2019 (IST)

User:Abhishekbiswas82 - What draft are you asking about? Do you mean Draft:Pragya Dasgupta? Robert McClenon (talk) 10:29, 10 May 2019 (UTC)
I had created a draft of Parmish Verma which was deleted by you. That is how I saw your profile and I was asked to talk to you. I have created a draft again. Request you to kindly review the content if possible. Here is the url https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:Parmish_Verma. It will be helpful if you can review Draft:Pragya Dasgupta as well and share your opinion. I can edit if required and you can help me to publish it. Thanking you! (Abhishekbiswas82 (talk) 11:50, 10 May 2019 (UTC)).
(talk page stalker) User:Abhishekbiswas82, there is an existing Draft:Parmish Verma, and the previous deletion was by RHaworth, not this editor Jimfbleak - talk to me? 12:19, 10 May 2019 (UTC)

User:196309c The draft is Draft:Ric & Thadeus. Please sign your posts. Robert McClenon (talk) 10:30, 10 May 2019 (UTC)
The draft had reference errors, and used Wikipedia as a reference. Robert McClenon (talk) 10:34, 10 May 2019 (UTC)
Do you have a conflict of interest? Robert McClenon (talk) 10:34, 10 May 2019 (UTC)
User:196309c - It is not necessary to put a long statement of notability on a reviewer's talk page. When I said to put it on a talk page, I meant on the draft talk page, and I have copied it for you. Robert McClenon (talk) 12:38, 10 May 2019 (UTC)

apologies. thank you for copying this for me. will await re-review.

Pay & Allowances ...Edit

Thanks to all the 'Editors' of Wikipedia (who participated in this Test-Project) for providing sufficient ‘evidence’ to seek a court-administered injunction against viewing Wikipedia in India -- unless Wikipedia prominently displays on its each & every web-page a Disclaimer to the effect that 'Wikipedia is not a reliable resource' (this is already officially admitted by Wikipedia on one of its web-pages, and also by one of its Editors during a ‘Live-Chat’) because its Editors are admittedly not ‘Subject-Experts’ and, moreso, some of them have not even passed High School; hence, they may not be expected even to know the true Definitions of 'Encyclopaedia', ‘Dictionary’, 'Research', 'Research-Paper', 'Research-References', 'Essay' etc -- not to speak of being able to understand well the Philosophy of Law and the methodology of writing Legal Articles.

BTW, I am on the Board of Editors of 3 International Research Journals and am a Peer-Reviewer of another International Research Journal which is published on behalf of Cambridge University (UK), my Articles are published on Editorial Pages of leading National Dailies (English) and are read by Legal Fraternity (including Judges), my Papers are presented at International Conferences & Seminars, I have more than 3000 ‘Followers’ (including Academics, bureaucrats, News-Channels etc) who read my Articles published at LinkedIn -- all of them understand my Articles, Papers etc because they all are highly learned Intelligentsia (they are not individuals who have not yet passed even High School).

(talk page watcher) uh... your point? CoolSkittle (talk) 11:54, 12 May 2019 (UTC)
User:Philhorn, User:CoolSkittle - This may have been a blatant violation of Wikipedia is not a lab, of testing the behavior of Wikipedia editors to some draft. Robert McClenon (talk) 14:29, 12 May 2019 (UTC)
I will research this more in the next 24 hours. Robert McClenon (talk) 14:29, 12 May 2019 (UTC)

A beer for you!Edit

  This was a much more nuanced and fair closure [[6]], thank you for that. Hell in a Bucket (talk) 18:32, 12 May 2019 (UTC)
User:Hell in a Bucket - The whole point is that a fair closure and a nuanced closure could not exist in the same space. Erasing a notice is hardly a nuance because it is gaming the system. Next stop, either a binding RFC, or WP:ANI. Robert McClenon (talk) 18:42, 12 May 2019 (UTC)

Templates for MFD nomsEdit

Thanks for you suggestion[7] of using templates for making MFD noms.

I thought of that, but there far too many variants of case for one template to do. Plus with templates, I'd have to save first and then edit.

So what I do is to use a clipboard manager to store a range of stock phrases and paragraphs which I can combine in various ways, and hack about in the edit window before saving. More flexible, lower overhead.

But thanks again for the suggestion. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 01:13, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

If you thought of it, you thought of it. I use templates for messages in declining AFC submissions, such as {{draftautobio}}, {{compsays}}, and {{noccs}}. Robert McClenon (talk) 01:17, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

Request on 09:13:34, 13 May 2019 for assistance on AfC submission by Paul ZawilenskyEdit


Hi Robert,

I need help to understand why exactly my draft for the article about the Dubblestandart band, has been rejected and what I can do to solve the issue. The article is in many parts based on the existing article about the Dubblestandart Band on the German version of Wikipedia. https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dubblestandart and has just been updated with new content. It should exist in the English speaking world as this is mainly where the band and fans live and operate. The Dubblestandart Band has a wide array of collaboroations with international known artists from the Reggae Scene as well as a huge back catalog and is signed for more than 17 years to the well known German label Echo Beach. I believe it qualifies to several of your notability criterias concerning musicians and bands and there are reliable, secondary sources that have independently written about the band. There are countless mentiones in online and printed magazines for the last 20 years!

https://www.allmusic.com/artist/dubblestandart-mn0000211873 https://reader.exacteditions.com/magazines/493/search?q=Dubblestandart https://shop.pmedia.de/p_de/catalogsearch/result/?q=Dubblestandart https://www.falter.at/archiv/search?term=Dubblestandart https://www.forcedexposure.com/SearchResult.html?SearchType=Basic&Type=artist&Key=Dubblestandart https://fm4v3.orf.at/stories/1712230/index.html https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subatomic_Sound_System

I can also upload a file with collected printed material if needed... If there is an issue in the way I have listed or categorized , pls advice how I can do better...:) Please let me know, what exactly the issue is about, so I can update... Many thanx Paul

Paul Zawilensky (talk) 09:13, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

User:Paul Zawilensky - First, do not upload a file with collected printed material, and do not dump links onto my talk page. It is not useful to provide documentation to a reviewer. A draft article should speak for itself. Allmusic is not a reliable source. Do not use Wikipedia as a reference. I will review the draft shortly. However, I suggest that you ask for the opinions of other experienced editors at the Teahouse. Robert McClenon (talk) 16:59, 13 May 2019 (UTC)
User:Paul Zawilensky - Did you read the comments that I made on your draft? Most of your English draft is not written in complete English sentences. It needs to be edited into proper English paragraphs, preferably with section headings. Also, as I said, it is not clear which of the musical notability criteria the band satisfies. It may satisfy one or two or three of them; a reviewer should be able to tell which ones. Your draft has introductory material that is not part of the article. We do not want that. Please organize your article into sections in English sentences. If you have any further questions, you may ask at the Teahouse. Robert McClenon (talk) 17:08, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

Being and NothingesssEdit

Hello, Robert McClenon. I suggest that you might want to consider declining to give a third opinion at Talk:Being and Nothingness. Drevolt has placed a request for comment regarding the editorial disputes at the article. The request will inevitably attraction attention from multiple other users, meaning that the disagreements at the page will no longer be between two people only, making this a situation in which a third opinion is inappropriate.

NPR Newsletter No.18Edit

Hello Robert McClenon,

WMF at work on NPP Improvements

Niharika Kohli, a product manager for the growth team, announced that work is underway in implementing improvements to New Page Patrol as part of the 2019 Community Wishlist and suggests all who are interested watch the project page on meta. Two requested improvements have already been completed. These are:

  • Allow filtering by no citations in page curation
  • Not having CSD and PRODs automatically marked as reviewed, reflecting current consensus among reviewers and current Twinkle functionality.
Reliable Sources for NPP

Rosguill has been compiling a list of reliable sources across countries and industries that can be used by new page patrollers to help judge whether an article topic is notable or not. At this point further discussion is needed about if and how this list should be used. Please consider joining the discussion about how this potentially valuable resource should be developed and used.

Backlog drive coming soon

Look for information on the an upcoming backlog drive in our next newsletter. If you'd like to help plan this drive, join in the discussion on the New Page Patrol talk page.

Kamarupi DRNEdit

FYI.

I am not knowledgeable about the disputed content itself, but If there is any other way I can help just let me know. Cheers. Abecedare (talk) 22:27, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

Thank you, User:Abecedare - I am not knowledgeable about the content either. I expect the participants to educate me as to the content. However, it appears that one editor is going back to arguing that we should not have split the two articles. I think that the split was a consensus decision. Please clarify exactly what the nature of the sanctions were that were imposed on Bh. I have re-alerted both parties to discretionary sanctions, but I think that one is innocent and one is being tendentious. Do we give one more try, or do I fail the DRN and let it go back either to you or to Arbitration Enforcement? Robert McClenon (talk) 22:38, 19 May 2019 (UTC)
Again, thank you. Robert McClenon (talk) 22:38, 19 May 2019 (UTC)
Bhaskar currently is only prohibited from discussing the issues related to Kamarupi articles outside the DRN-process. That is a voluntary measure but, if needed, discretionary sanctions can be used to back up or expand the prohibition.
FWIW, my impression from when I reviewed the ANI report is similar to yours with respect to the conduct issues. And as far as the content dispute goes, to me it is noteworthy that initially uninvolved editors, Richard Keatinge and Aeusoes1 who took a detailed enough dive into the subject ended up on one side of the debate (I readily concede that this is an imperfect metric). That said, by now you have the best independent and detailed view of both the content dispute and the disputants' conduct. So I will let you decide on how and how long to drive the DRN process. Abecedare (talk) 23:02, 19 May 2019 (UTC)
User:Abecedare - My thought at this point is to start two minor RFCs and then see if the parties are willing to close out the DRN and resume discussion on the talk pages. I don't know if that will work, but I don't know if anything will work other than a topic-ban. Robert McClenon (talk) 15:40, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
It may be that the subject is to esoteric and requires to much prior knowledge/reading for it to attract outside opinions at the the RFCs. But they are at least worth a try. The latest RFC, which asks a very focused question may well serve as an entry point for some new editors. To aid the effort, I have advertised the discussions at the India-project noticeboard. Abecedare (talk) 21:22, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
There may be a lot of scholarly knowledge involved. Of Indian languages, it is Sanskrit that is esoteric. Robert McClenon (talk) 22:09, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
