deprodEdit

I have removed the {{prod}} tag from Dharmakkan Dhanaraj, which you proposed for deletion. I'm leaving this message here to notify you about it. If you still think the article should be deleted, please don't add the {{prod}} template back to the article. Instead, feel free to list it at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion.

Speedy deletion nomination of Bids for the 2018 Gay GamesEdit

Hello SecretName101,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Bids for the 2018 Gay Games for deletion, because it appears to duplicate an existing Wikipedia article, [[{{{article}}}]].

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. JamesG5 (talk) 10:08, 14 November 2015 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Bids for the 2018 Gay GamesEdit

 

A tag has been placed on Bids for the 2018 Gay Games requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section R2 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a redirect from the article namespace to a different namespace except the Category, Template, Wikipedia, Help, or Portal namespaces.

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 removed 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.

ArbCom elections are now open!Edit

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page. For the Election committee, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 14:16, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

Help decide the future of WikimaniaEdit

The Wikimedia Foundation is currently running a consultation on the value and planning process of Wikimania, and is open until 18 January 2016. The goals are to (1) build a shared understanding of the value of Wikimania to help guide conference planning and evaluation, and (2) gather broad community input on what new form(s) Wikimania could take (starting in 2018).

After reviewing the consultation, we'd like to hear your feedback on on this survey.

In addition, feel free to share any personal experiences you have had at at a Wikimedia movement conference, including Wikimania. We plan to compile and share back outcomes from this consultation in February.

With thanks,

I JethroBT (WMF) (talk), from Community Resources 21:32, 13 January 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for moving my userboxEdit

Thanks for moving User:Timeshifter/Userboxes/User contrib CentralAuth simple to Template:User contrib CentralAuth simple, and adapting it for use there. --Timeshifter (talk) 06:50, 20 January 2016 (UTC)

Not a problem. Thank you for creating it.

Towards a New Wikimania resultsEdit

Last December, I invited you to share your views on the value of Wikimedia conferences and the planning process of Wikimania. We have completed analysis of these results and have prepared this report summarizing your feedback and important changes for Wikimania starting in 2018 as an experiment. Feedback and comments are welcome at the discussion page. Thank you so much for your participation. I JethroBT (WMF), Community Resources, 22:47, 8 February 2016 (UTC)

User contrib CentralAuth simple listed at Redirects for discussionEdit

An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect User contrib CentralAuth simple. Since you had some involvement with the User contrib CentralAuth simple redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion if you have not already done so. Stefan2 (talk) 17:22, 10 July 2016 (UTC)

Polling data at Gary Johnson presidential campaign, 2016Edit

I've removed the general election polling data from this article, as it is inappropriate for it to be here. It's redundant to Nationwide opinion polling for the United States presidential election, 2016, which is where the information should be. Compare against Hillary Clinton presidential campaign, 2016 and Donald Trump presidential campaign, 2016 which do not have such enormous polling data sections. Thanks, --Hammersoft (talk) 20:00, 16 July 2016 (UTC)

‎Aggregate pollsEdit

Your idea isn't a bad one, if you want I could even help you out with a separate article. As for the other polls though we already had past discussions on those involving Ballotpedia, and the Morning Consult. I just wish you had taken a look at those before doing all the work of re-adding the polls. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 14:35, 1 August 2016 (UTC)

I noticed after they had been removed that their was a prior conversation. Would the separate article be for the older polls? What do you think the cut-off date should be for it?SecretName101 (talk) 20:05, 8 August 2016 (UTC)

Copying within Wikipedia requires proper attributionEdit

  Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you copied or moved text from United States presidential election, 1996 into United States third party and independent presidential candidates, 1996. While you are welcome to re-use Wikipedia's content, here or elsewhere, Wikipedia's licensing does require that you provide attribution to the original contributor(s). When copying within Wikipedia, this is supplied at minimum in an edit summary at the page into which you've copied content. It is good practice, especially if copying is extensive, to also place a properly formatted {{copied}} template on the talk pages of the source and destination. The attribution has been provided for this situation, but if you have copied material between pages before, even if it was a long time ago, please provide attribution for that duplication. You can read more about the procedure and the reasons at Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia. Thank you. If you are the sole author of the prose that was moved, attribution is not required. — Diannaa (talk) 21:36, 14 August 2016 (UTC)

New deal for page patrollersEdit

Hi SecretName101,

In order to better control the quality of new pages, keep out the spam, and welcome the genuine newbies, the current system we introduced in 2011 is being updated and improved. The documentation and tutorials have also been revised and given a facelift. Most importantly a new user group New Page Reviewer has been created.

Under the new rule, you may find that you are temporarily unable to mark new pages as reviewed. However, this is nothing to worry about - most current experienced patrollers are being accorded the the new right without the need to apply, and if you have significant previous experience of patrolling new pages, we strongly encourage you to apply for the new right as soon as possible - we need all the help we can get, and we are now providing a dynamic, supportive environment for your work.

Find out more about this exiting new user right now at New Page Reviewers and be sure to read the new tutorial before applying. MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 04:29, 13 November 2016 (UTC)

  Hello. This is a message to let you know that one or more of your recent contributions did not appear constructive and has been reverted. Please take some time to familiarise yourself with our policies and guidelines.

  Hello, I'm Ilabsboy. Wikipedia is written by people who have a wide diversity of opinions, but we try hard to make sure articles have a neutral point of view. Your recent edit seemed less than neutral to me, so it has been removed it for now. If you think this was a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you.

  • I have moved your post down to the bottom of my talk page. You failed to heed the instructions to post below the line, and instead posted at he top of my talkpage.

Replaceable fair use File:Lester Crown 01.jpgEdit

Thanks for uploading File:Lester Crown 01.jpg. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. – Train2104 (t • c) 23:05, 8 June 2017 (UTC)

Kasperi KapanenEdit

Hello,

Thank you so much for your NHL additions. I am just wondering where you got this picture of Kapanen [1]. I don't believe it looks like him, as well the picture reads " Maple Leafs 2017 Playoffs" but I am unsure why he is wearing green during the playoffs. I was wondering if would mind clarifying. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 05:34, 19 February 2018 (UTC)

@HickoryOughtShirt?4, I had been going off of the originally-announced AHL All-Star roster, which included Kapenen (who ultimately did not participate). I had identified every other player on his conference's roster, except him. Thus, I assumed that the image must have been him (albeit, maybe from a bizarre angle). It turned out that when I found a more-updated roster, I learned that the subject of the image was Andreas Johnsson.SecretName101 (talk) 04:26, 22 February 2018 (UTC)

Ah, that makes sense. Thanks for updating all the other pictures though, it's much appreciated! HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 04:30, 22 February 2018 (UTC)

Legacy TowerEdit

Other than photo captions, I don't see the evidence that the Chicago building ever had that name.

I changed the redirect page to disambiguation since this week I discovered there were three of them. After one of them just changed its name. Strange that I don't recall the other one having that name.— Vchimpanzee • talk • contributions • 21:57, 10 May 2018 (UTC)

Ways to improve Loans for shares schemeEdit

Hi, I'm Onel5969. SecretName101, thanks for creating Loans for shares scheme!

I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix. Nice article. You need to add more footnotes, particularly where you quoting something (Yeltsin's quote on banks - where did it come from?), or where you are asserting something (e.g. the scheme has been perceived as many as unfair - who?).

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse.

An article you recently created, Dmitry Medvedev presidential campaign, 2008, does not have enough sources and citations as written to remain published. It needs more citations from reliable, independent sources. (?) Information that can't be referenced should be removed (verifiability is of central importance on Wikipedia).

2019 Memphis mayoral electionEdit

Hello SecretName101. I saw you moved this article back to the original title with the edit summary "Formatting name similarly to other election articles". Just a heads up that the naming convention for election articles (WP:NC-GAL) has just changed to put the year at the front (I did note this in the edit summary). Most articles are going to be moved by a bot in the next few days, but any created after 1 October needed to be moved manually (hence me moving this one and several others in Category:United States mayoral elections, 2019 that were recent creations).

Request for helpEdit

Hello,

I noticed that you edit from the mobile site, and I was hoping that you could help me. The mw:Editing team has posted some ideas about improving the editing experience on the mobile site at mw:Visual-based mobile editing/Ideas/October 2018. Could you look through that and tell them which ideas you like best (or least)? It's really helpful for them to hear from experienced editors who are familiar with the problems.

Take part in a surveyEdit

Hi SecretName101

We're working to measure the value of Wikipedia in economic terms. We want to ask you some questions about how you value being able to edit Wikipedia.

Our survey should take about 10-15 minutes of your time. We hope that you will enjoy it and find the questions interesting. All answers will be kept strictly confidential and will be anonymized before the aggregate results are published. Regretfully, we can only accept responses from people who live in the US due to restrictions in our grant-based funding.

As a reward for your participation, we will randomly pick 1 out of every 5 participants and give them $25 worth of goods of their choice from the Wikipedia store (e.g. Wikipedia themed t-shirts). Note that we can only reward you if you are based in the US.

Mayoral electionsEdit

Hi SecretName101

I see that you have been doing great work creating articles on mayoral elections, especially in Illinois.

However, in many you have been placing the articles in categories which you do not exist, usually "Category:statename elections, YYYY" e.g. 1915 Chicago mayoral election in Category:Illinois elections, 1915.

They are clearly valid categs which should exist, but as yet do not; so you did right to categorise the articles that way. Per WP:REDNOT, the non-existent categories show up as errors on cleanup lists, so I have been creating them.

However, I thought I should pint out to you that these are v easy categories to create. Just past {{Category U.S. State elections by year}} into the category page, and save. The template is a smart one which configures itself, so no parameters are needed. Just paste and save.

The latest redlinked categ I see is in Category:Illinois elections, 1923. Maybe you'd like to create it.

Hope this helps --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 07:56, 6 December 2018 (UTC)

Cleveland Traction Wars moved to draftspaceEdit

An article you recently created, Cleveland Traction Wars, does not have enough detail and citations as written to remain published. It needs to be expanded to be meaningful.. I've moved your draft to draftspace (with a prefix of "Draft:" before the article title) where you can incubate the article with minimal disruption. When you feel the article meets Wikipedia's general notability guideline and thus is ready for mainspace, please click on the "Submit your draft for review!" button at the top of the page.

  Hello, I'm Sheldybett. I noticed that you recently removed content from 1889 Chicago mayoral election without adequately explaining why.

If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks.

Making GA nominationsEdit

SecretName101, I've just fixed your GA nomination at Talk:2019 South Bend, Indiana mayoral election.

Basically, when you make a nomination, you should use the {{GAN}} template, which creates the {{GA nominee}} template and fills everything in correctly. The GA nomination instructions page has all the details on how to do this, and about the full process in general. In addition, you should not attempt to insert anything on the WP:GAN page; there is a bot that does this automatically and in the proper format, and will overwrite anything you do within twenty minutes of your edit.
