Wondering about your methodologyEdit

Do you just whack stupid speedy deletion notices on everything?

Relist BiasEdit

Hi. I saw that you relisted this AfD. Have you read the essay Wikipedia:Relist bias? I think it explains why non-sysops, such as us, should not be relisting AfD discussions in pretty clear terms. Best, Barkeep49 (talk) 13:16, 29 March 2019 (UTC)

Agree with the above; Sheldybett, you were told in no uncertain terms in January to stop closing AFDs (and that includes relisting) or you would likely be TBANned; your initial response was to feign contrition and stay away from AFD closing for a few weeks, but then you seem to have gone right back to the behaviour that put eyes on you in the first place.

Sheldybett May I ask why after all of these conversations, you thought it would be a good idea to relist not one, but two AFDs? In case you need a reminder for what I am referring, see these discussions:[1], [2], [3], [4], [5], [6], [7]).([8], [9], [10],[11] Praxidicae (talk) 15:02, 4 April 2019 (UTC)

Relisting AfDsEdit

Just a friendly heads-up – per NOQUORUM, AfDs that have had no opposition, such as Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Freemu Varghese, should be soft-deleted as an expired prod, rather than relisted. Bradv🍁 15:01, 4 April 2019 (UTC)

Concerns expressed at ANIEdit

I have expressed concerns about some of your actions at ANI. Best, Barkeep49 (talk) 15:34, 4 April 2019 (UTC)

It should be obvious, but I just want to add that you should not do anything related to deletions until that discussion is concluded. Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 19:11, 4 April 2019 (UTC)

Removing a BLP/PROD to nominate at AfDEdit

Why did you remove a valid BLPPROD that Praxidicae placed on the Bhavika Sharma article, then nominate it for AfD? You did something similar with PRODs on Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Alone in the Neon Jungle and Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Kiwiberri, in which you removed the PROD then nominated for AfD with the PROD rationale. The BLPPROD is even stranger since you didn't provide a single reliable source (which is the valid reason to remove a BLPPROD) when you removed it. Please explain. Bakazaka (talk) 02:41, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

Because I saw the WP:BLPPROD tag in front of an article, but it has one source which the reason I removed it. BLPPROD is the stub biographical article which has no sources at all. Sheldybett (talk) 03:00, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for the explanation. As Praxidicae's edit summary for the BLPPROD pointed out, the source is unreliable, and as the linked BLPPROD policy explains, the presence of an obviously unreliable source is not a valid reason to remove a BLPPROD: [12]. Perhaps you're thinking of the {{Unreferenced}} template, which can only be applied if no sources are present. But BLPPROD works differently, and you need to be especially careful not to do anything that looks like you're clerking deletion processes. Bakazaka (talk) 03:13, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

Drew BinskyEdit

Hey there, you placed the deletion tag on my page and would like your ok to remove it. I am actively working on the page. IsraeliIdan (talk) 10:14, 20 April 2019 (UTC)

Sorry, I could not because I was topic banned from clerking from admin related areas, maybe some other editors will remove it. Sheldybett (talk) 11:42, 20 April 2019 (UTC)

Joining my short wiki projectEdit

Hey there, I wanted to make an update to the lower leagues of Israeli Football. I could use your help. Most of it just needs some better grammar and copy/paste from the Hebrew Wikipedia. Wikipedia:WikiProject Israeli Football IsraeliIdan (talk) 17:41, 20 April 2019 (UTC)
