May thanks[edit]

May songs
my story today

Thank you for improving articles in May. - I had a good story on coronation day: the Te Deum we sang that day. And the following day we sang it for the composer ;)

I nominated Soňa Červená for GA just to give her a bit more exposure, and I took some pics of bright scenery - click on songs. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 19:39, 20 May 2023 (UTC)[reply]

@Gerda Arendt Thank you, for continuing your work on WP throughout the years. :)
I noticed some of your most recent pictures have been of scenery you took while biking. I like biking, and wish I got to do it more often, but with the love for cars in the US stronger than the love for bikes, I can only ever do it so often. If only... Cheers, atque supra!

I agree that where I lived in the US bike routes were rare. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 20:12, 20 May 2023 (UTC)[reply]
Pentecost was full of music, and my story today is that 300 years ago today, Bach became Thomaskantor, with BWV 75, writing music history. - Did you see my reply for the RD nom for the Mexican composer: works are on IRCAM? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 19:52, 30 May 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Help!!![edit]

Fake, Someone is repeatedly vandalizing my talk page calling me uncivil things. It is probably because they are mad that I undid some clear vandalism of theirs. What should I do? Knowledgegatherer23 (talk) 17:52, 22 May 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Ok, I think they've stopped, I just panicked there for a sec. :) Knowledgegatherer23 (talk) 18:01, 22 May 2023 (UTC)[reply]
Yep, they were just blocked. Knowledgegatherer23 (talk) 18:15, 22 May 2023 (UTC)[reply]
@Knowledgegatherer23 I’m so sorry I didn’t get to this! I was busy, but I’m glad that it was taken care of. Again, so sorry. :( Cheers, atque supra! Fakescientist8000 18:48, 22 May 2023 (UTC)[reply]
You respond faster than any user I know. It's fine. Have a great day. Knowledgegatherer23 (talk) 19:10, 22 May 2023 (UTC)[reply]
@Knowledgegatherer23 Thank you, and I will as much as you do. :)
FYI, in following cases, just WP:DENY and move on from them. It's not worth getting upset over some minor vandalism. Here, check your talk page: I'll give you a present for getting through this. Cheers, atque supra! Fakescientist8000 20:58, 22 May 2023 (UTC)[reply]
I'm wondering how many edits you would recommend having before requesting rollback rights? Knowledgegatherer23 (Say Hello) 03:09, 9 June 2023 (UTC)[reply]
@Knowledgegatherer23 Don’t be afraid to make a new section, because I keep seeing you put stuff in this section and I keep getting worried I missed something bad happening, lol.
anywho, I had about 2,000~ or so edits before I got rollback, but it doesn’t matter the amount of edits so much as the type of edits. I took a look through your contributions, and saw that you use RedWarn a lot. I recommend (and use heavily myself) WP:TWINKLE. It’s very easy to use, imo, it has rollback features for both good faith reversions, regular reversions, and vandalism reversions. Hope this helps! :) Cheers, atque supra!

Lambertus Nicolaas Holsboer moved to draftspace[edit]

An article you recently created, Lambertus Nicolaas Holsboer, is not suitable as written to remain published. It needs more in-depth coverage about the subject itself, with citations from reliable, independent sources in order to show it meets WP:GNG. It should have at least three, to be safe. And please remember that interviews, as primary sources, do not count towards GNG.(?) Information that can't be referenced should be removed (verifiability is of central importance on Wikipedia). 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.Onel5969 TT me 11:26, 30 May 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Chuvash and Tatars[edit]

Hello. I'm sorry to bother you. I want to revert Muslim Chuvash defined themselves as Tatars part in Chuvash page. Source is very non academic and problematic in various ways.


First Durmus Arik, Turkish writer of journal who studied on religions is not a historian to claim anything about old Chuvash people without using referances. Second is, journal states that "Chuvash people are Volga Bulgarians who first converted to Islam in Turkish history." Can you understand what I mean? This will create a misconception to think Chuvash people are Christian Tatars. I mean even if its true, that's a result of misconception and assimilation. I mean Ukrainians used to call "Little Russians" by their neighbors but they are different people despite being related and no one would mention the concept of Little Russians in page of Ukrainians. As a senior Wikipedia user, please fix this problem. Again, I don't use Wikipedia that much and I didn't know edit rules or "Good faith revert." But I'm a history student and can see this definetly not academic and maybe biaded. Please reconsider your decision.

@176.54.69.134 Apologies. Now that you've explained in further detail, I'll reverse my revert. (Also, see WP:AGF on what 'good faith revert' means). Cheers, atque supra! Fakescientist8000 20:43, 1 June 2023 (UTC)[reply]

@Vikingcow Sounds good! Pro tip, use the Special:Random page (or the Random page button on the side of your screen) to go to random pages.

Speedy deletion nomination of NoBull[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on NoBull requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a company, corporation or organization that does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

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. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator. LuGusDeclanBibaElodieBarnaby 22:33, 4 June 2023 (UTC)[reply]

@LuGusDeclanBibaElodieBarnaby: for future reference, please do not CSD a page with an {{Under construction}} or {{In use}} template on them unless they have not been actively edited in multiple days. Thanks. Cheers, atque supra! Fakescientist8000 22:38, 4 June 2023 (UTC)[reply]
(To be fair, that's not an accurate description of what happened in [1]. It was disruptive enough to lead to a block, though. You may like to remove this section.) ~ ToBeFree (talk) 22:52, 4 June 2023 (UTC)[reply]
@ToBeFree Huh, weird. I genuinely thought I tagged the article with the under construction tag before the placement of the CSD tag, but no matter. Cheers, atque supra! Fakescientist8000 22:55, 4 June 2023 (UTC)[reply]
Hah, you even overwrote the CSD tag by yours. Of course this is strictly forbidden and requires severe admonishment. :) ~ ToBeFree (talk) 22:58, 4 June 2023 (UTC)[reply]

The Signpost: 5 June 2023[edit]

Administrators' newsletter – June 2023[edit]

News and updates for administrators from the past month (May 2023).

Guideline and policy news

  • Following an RfC, editors indefinitely site-banned by community consensus will now have all rights, including sysop, removed.
  • As a part of the Wikimedia Foundation's IP Masking project, a new policy has been created that governs the access to temporary account IP addresses. An associated FAQ has been created and individual communities can increase the requirements to view temporary account IP addresses.

Technical news

  • Bot operators and tool maintainers should schedule time in the coming months to test and update their tools for the effects of IP masking. IP masking will not be deployed to any content wiki until at least October 2023 and is unlikely to be deployed to the English Wikipedia until some time in 2024.

Arbitration

  • The arbitration case World War II and the history of Jews in Poland has been closed. The topic area of Polish history during World War II (1933-1945) and the history of Jews in Poland is subject to a "reliable source consensus-required" contentious topic restriction.

I kinda regret jumping down your throat on the ITN thread where it was discovered you had bluelinked WP:MINIMUMDEATHS to a userspace essay. I admire your intentions, actually. I noticed that a few people recently were intentionally !voting "Oppose per WP:MINIMUMDEATHS" and that was something I found a bit perturbing, so if you created the essay in response to that, great idea. However, to be consistent with essay and userspace guidelines, you really should move that essay into project-space so that it can then be treated as a proper essay rather than as a personal opinion. The community had deleted IntoThinAir's redirect of his "Things that won't get posted to ITN" essay for that reason. I would support your essay's inclusion in project-space.

Actually, I had adapted the content of that essay into my current project-space essay WP:HOWITNWORKS and did momentarily consider seizing the MINIMUMDEATHS redirect for that purpose. So I guess in a way, I feel lapped. :-) Cheers, WaltClipper -(talk) 20:16, 20 June 2023 (UTC)[reply]

@WaltCip Ha! All is well, my friend. I had actually thought of the idea for a few months and decided to to it proactively as opposed to reactively. Smart, eh? Not really, I know. My big concern in regards to moving it from userspace to projectspace is that I'm afraid it'll get redlinked once again if it's moved by myself or someone else. If enough people say they're fine with it being in project space (besides just you and I) then I'll move it, but until then, I can't do it for the good faith of the project. You get what I'm saying?
I guess what goes around comes around. I steal your redirect, you steal my signature, etc etc etc. Hope you're doing well and continue to do well during these fine summer days. Cheers, atque supra! Fakescientist8000 20:49, 20 June 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Fakescientist8000 00:46, 21 June 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Hello, Fakescientist8000,

I think this was moved prematurely into project space. It's not really an essay, it's a thought or opinion. Considering the time and care of most Wikipedia essays on policies and practices, this page seems like it was just written hurriedly and it needs much more time and work before it can be presented to the community as an essay. Also know that while it is in project space, any editor can change it to reflect their point of view, it's not really yours any more. Just a suggestion. Thanks. Liz Read! Talk! 03:10, 21 June 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Hi @Liz,
It was indeed, following a redirects for discussion started about WP:MINIMUMDEATHS. Considering that the redirect can't be used for a userspace essay without getting a discussion involved, and by moving it into projectspace shows that it is sloppy, I'm not sure what to do here. Cheers, atque supra! Fakescientist8000 03:12, 21 June 2023 (UTC)[reply]
I don't have any problem contributing to the essay to help develop your point, if you'd like. You're also free to merge it into my essay WP:HOWITNWORKS, since that one is in project space and it is a bit more developed. I had intended it as sort of a beginner's guide or FAQ to WP:ITN. Cheers, WaltClipper -(talk) 12:34, 21 June 2023 (UTC)[reply]
@WaltCip I think that’s the best course of action. Just give me credit - somehow. Cheers, atque supra! Fakescientist8000 13:49, 21 June 2023 (UTC)[reply]
@Fakescientist8000 You've got your wish. Now just because I primarily wrote this essay, that does not mean other contributors are prohibited from doing so. I feel I've sufficiently echoed both your point and that of community consensus, but if you feel any edits need to be made for any reason, have at it.
Have a beer on me, mate. Cheers, WaltClipper -(talk) 15:29, 21 June 2023 (UTC)[reply]
@WaltCip I’ve actually got one last question for you: is it a hard C or a soft C in WaltCip? Cheers, atque supra! Fakescientist8000 05:03, 22 June 2023 (UTC)[reply]
It was meant to be a soft "C", like "sip", or short for "Cipriani" (this originated from my Chūnibyō days, don't ask how exactly 😅). However, I've found over the years that people referred to me as "WaltChip" or "WaltClip" despite my name being relatively easy to spell, at least I thought. So I parodied those errors with my current signature, WaltClipper - and now I'm finding people are starting to call me WaltCip again. Can't win. 🤦‍♂️ So short answer is, it's a soft "C" but I really don't care either way. Cheers, WaltClipper -(talk) 12:55, 22 June 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Ten years or so ago, back when WP:RFC/U was still a thing, he was an active participant on ITN/C and was equally loud and uncivil (perhaps more so, I don't remember) about a supposed U.S.-centric systemic bias that existed on ITN/C and how he had never heard of these people/events in Australia and how we'd never do the same nominations for Aussies, etc.. His interactions were so unpleasant that it did eventually lead to an RFC/U about him (which he promptly blew off, again, with all-caps and exclamation points), and then later, a topic ban from ITN/C. It seems like he's back to his old behaviors, but then again, I was no saint back then either. Cheers, WaltClipper -(talk) 18:44, 30 June 2023 (UTC)[reply]

@WaltCip So he’s been throwing Aussie-related temper tantrums on Candidates for a decade now? Impressive, and yet so unimpressive. Hopefully, in 10 years time, I’ll be able to look back at my comments on ITN/C now and chuckle. Or maybe cringe. Perhaps both. Cheers, atque supra! Fakescientist8000 21:13, 30 June 2023 (UTC)[reply]
And with gems like these, it's no wonder we allow him to contribute. Such exemplary behavior typifies the sort of civility and decorum we need here on Wikipedia. Cheers, WaltClipper -(talk) 19:22, 1 July 2023 (UTC)[reply]
And calling someone a 'bugger', not once, but twice? That's Editor of the Week Month levels of competence right there. Cheers, atque supra! Fakescientist8000 21:03, 1 July 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Non-free images of living people[edit]

Hi,

You have uploaded some non-free images of a living person. Almost all such images are not compliant with Wikipedia's guidelines for non-free content. In particular, it contravenes policy point 1 which covers replaceability. From the guidelines, "Non-free content should not be used when a freely licensed file that serves the same purpose can reasonably be expected to be uploaded, as is the case for almost all portraits of living people." Please don't upload any more non-free images of living people. They will just be deleted. Regards. -- Whpq (talk) 01:48, 2 July 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Orphaned non-free image File:Bailey Zappe 2022 Patriots.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Bailey Zappe 2022 Patriots.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in section F5 of the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 17:16, 4 July 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Unsourced edits to BLPs[edit]

Hi! I undid an edit you made to Josh Pederson, adding his full name (here), as you did not include a citation for it and I did not see one supporting that edit in the article. Additionally, I've seen a few of your edits in passing and many do not include citations, especially on articles for biographies of living persons. Just from edits in your most recent 50 contributions, I found your edits to Brandon Aubrey, this edit to Cole Kmet, this edit to Paris Johnson Jr., and this edit to Mack Wilson. Please make sure you include sources when editing articles, especially BLPs. Thanks! Eagles 24/7 (C) 00:35, 7 July 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Hey @Eagles247:, thank you for the heads up. Apologies if I couldn't reply right away (in fact I was several months late), but I will keep notice on that. Cheers, atque supra! Fakescientist8000 00:50, 4 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]

An article you recently created, Diego Fagot, is not suitable 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). 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.

Administrators' newsletter – September 2023[edit]

News and updates for administrators from the past month (August 2023).

Guideline and policy news

  • Following an RfC, TFAs will be automatically semi-protected the day before it is on the main page and through the day after.
  • A discussion at WP:VPP about revision deletion and oversight for dead names found that [s]ysops can choose to use revdel if, in their view, it's the right tool for this situation, and they need not default to oversight. But oversight could well be right where there's a particularly high risk to the person. Use your judgment.

Technical news

Arbitration

  • The SmallCat dispute case has closed. As part of the final decision, editors participating in XfD have been reminded to be careful about forming local consensus which may or may not reflect the broader community consensus. Regular closers of XfD forums were also encouraged to note when broader community discussion, or changes to policies and guidelines, would be helpful.

Miscellaneous

  • Tech tip: The "Browse history interactively" banner shown at the top of Special:Diff can be used to easily look through a history, assemble composite diffs, or find out what archive something wound up in.

Notice

The article IV and the Strange Band has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Borderline notability, band has been active for a year and barely any critical notice in reliable sources.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Happy Holidays[edit]

Peace is a state of balance and understanding in yourself and between others, where respect is gained by the acceptance of differences, tolerance persists, conflicts are resolved through dialog, people's rights are respected and their voices are heard, and everyone is at their highest point of serenity without social tension. Happy Holidays to you and yours. ―Buster7
