Are you qualified to be commenting at RfA? Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 14:10, 25 July 2019 (UTC)

@Kudpung:By which you mean have I been on wikipedia for 3 months and made 500 edits? No, I made this account a month or so ago and have about a third the generally desired edits. On the other hand, I have been editing wikipedia anonymously off and on for the last 15 years. My impetus for creating an account was actually that I ran into some articles that needed fixing but which were semi-protected. I haven't actually gotten around to fixing them because of other time constraints. On the gripping hand, how the community behaves probably does more to determine if new editors stick around, or if they throw their hands up in disgust and leave. Are you suggesting I should do the latter? Rockphed (talk) 16:59, 25 July 2019 (UTC)

Help me!Edit

This help request has been answered. If you need more help, you can ask another question on your talk page, contact the responding user(s) directly on their user talk page, or consider visiting the Teahouse.

I can't remember how I came across them, but I am at a loss for what to do about user:Mdehrey. They created 4 articles and a half dozen redirects that are of dubious notability and poor quality. I found a discussion where one of the articles had been deleted by discussion and then recreated, so I nominated it and all the redirects for speedy deletion, but I don't want to sink days into figuring out proper policy and determining if sources are good and figuring out notability. Is there somewhere I can throw either the user or the articles at for review?

Rockphed (talk) 15:22, 7 August 2019 (UTC)

There is little use in taking this to a noticeboard as they haven't edited in almost 10 years. You may tag the content for deletion if it fits speedy deletion criteria, WP:PROD, WP:AFD or WP:RFD. Praxidicae (talk) 15:33, 7 August 2019 (UTC)

Friedrich EisenbrandEdit

I removed the deletion tag. The subject is clearly notable. You need a strong argument to claim that 3 national and international prizes is not enough. Mhym (talk) 14:17, 14 August 2019 (UTC)

Lucien MatteEdit

Re your comment on Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Lucien Matte that you wished you had grabbed the source from the article before its speedy deletion: the single reference in the deleted version is (I think it's the same as the link listed in the deletion log entry for that article.) —David Eppstein (talk) 18:33, 5 September 2019 (UTC)


Hi. Thank you for taking an interest in how we elect our admins. You will certainly find WP:RFAV an interesting and helpful read. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 20:10, 4 October 2019 (UTC)

Bad faithEdit

Hey. I just checked my watchlist and noticed your !vote at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Alyssa Lang. Could you please explain how my nomination is in bad faith? I think you may have mixed my comment with the one below it, by the page creator. Regards, Vermont (talk) 02:21, 7 October 2019 (UTC)

Vermont: You are right, I did mistake the page creator's comment for the end of your comment. I had read it as "I am mad that pages I liked got deleted, so I am going to nominate pages someone else made about people of the same level of importance for deletion. That will show them!" My apologies. Rockphed (talk) 12:39, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
No issue, just wanted to clarify. Best, Vermont (talk) 13:48, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
