    Help?[edit]

    @SafariScribe Can I ask (just ask) why my Draft:Gianluca_Neri contribution was rejected due to a lack of sources, when there are 31 sources cited, mostly from popular magazines and newspapers? Thank you. Tiziano (talk) 18:10, 08 Jul 2024 (UTC+1)

    What happened to our working draft? I went to save a change and the sandbox no longer exists? SusunW (talk) 17:16, 11 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    It looks like you asked for it to be deleted? Why? The point is to preserve the history by pointing to the sandbox edits and finish working on sections. I am confused, since I only asked you to move the first section back to the main article. SusunW (talk) 17:25, 11 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    I have requested undeletion by the deleting admin Fastily. Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 17:32, 11 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    Thanks. Will come back when I can. Real life stuff is happening at the moment. SusunW (talk) 17:37, 11 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    Okay, I was able to talk to my mom and everything is okay with her for the moment. Please slow down and do not rush the article. As I said, it will take time and we need to get it right. I told you that I wasn't finished reviewing the LGBT material that was already in the main article, but it is not there anymore and the legacy section is gone. No worries, I will pull what I need from the history. Please note, I plan processes and am a very methodical worker, especially in a peer review. I cannot function well or sign off that things have been completed if the process I outlined is ignored. Of course any time you want, you can stop the peer review, but if you want me to continue mentoring you, please do not anticipate/ignore my instructions. If I ask you to do steps 1, 2, and 3, please do those and stop. Certainly we can discuss things, but I need things to happen in a certain order, unless we mutually agree on another plan. I need to regroup, lots going on right now, but I'll come back to the review later, hopefully today. SusunW (talk) 18:10, 11 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    I came back to work, but cannot. All of the edits I made this morning to style have disappeared. When you get the sandbox restored, ping me if you want to continue collaborating. I don't have the energy to find all of the sources and rewrite what I already wrote today. SusunW (talk) 19:22, 11 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    I will do that. Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 20:20, 11 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Question from BenjaminSchmidt745 (19:52, 12 May 2024)[edit]

    How do I make my Wikipedia article famous online? --BenjaminSchmidt745 (talk) 19:52, 12 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Hi and welcome. I answered that in your first question. Remember that an editor is discouraged to create an article about his/herself and should follow certain rules especially the WP:COI. Can I see the article in question. Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 19:55, 12 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    The COVID-19 pandemic ended in April 2024. The virus officially became an endemic virus. The pandemic ended because many people stopped dying and it was no longer a leading cause of death. The COVID-19 virus causes most people to have mild or cold-like symptoms, many have moderate symptoms like they do for the flu, and some even have severe symptoms. However, very few died and it is less common to have severe symptoms than it was before. Most people with mild to moderate symptoms do not get long-COVID. The people that are at risk of dying or having severe symptoms are very immunocompromised people or the elderly, but even most elderly people still survive and most of them have mild to moderate symptoms. COVID-19 is seasonal. COVID-19 now occurs high and has waves in the fall and winter, and goes downhill in spring and summer and waits to come back again in fall and winter. You can still get COVID-19 in the spring and summer, but it is not very common. You may hear people year-round complaining they have the flu or COVID-19, but you should no longer expect to get COVID-19 in spring or summer. However, COVID-19 and the flu are not common in spring or summer, but it is not rare. COVID-19 has mutated so much since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic and has gotten slowly overtime more mild. This is due to people getting herd immunity and natural immunity to COVID-19. This stopped infections killing people as much and the newer variants have become more contagious than they were before, but are more mild and less damaging to our immune systems and for long-COVID or death. Hundreds of people in the world are still dying from COVID-19, but comparing the number of infections this number does seem mild. This number is fewer than the deaths of car crashes now, thankfully. COVID-19 is here to stay and is not leaving. This marks the virus as endemic. We have already had four endemic coronaviruses, and this is our fifth endemic coronavirus that we are just going to have to deal with. We may expect more pandemics and even coronaviruses in the future, but we are in an endemic for now. The COVID-19 pandemic was expected at the start of the pandemic for the virus to be eradicated, but at least it is a seasonal thing and less severe. There were many reasons why COVID-19 was never eradicated. Most people are now living regular pre-COVID lives like they were and it is happening again. There are many variants of COVID-19 and it is hard to stop and it is already in animals and that means it is hard if not impossible to eradicate now. The number of people that test positive for an infection are lower than they were before, but that is because COVID-19 tests do not work as well. Sadly this is true, but you can always use a COVID-19 test at your doctor's office or pharmacy. The good news is that COVID-19 is usually mild and will not require a test and you will have the virus without knowing it or needing a test. The COVID-19 pandemic has officially ended and became endemic in April 2024. This is good news for the world! BenjaminSchmidt745 (talk) 20:18, 12 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Babita[edit]

    Do you know why this move request was not relisted, even though there was still a debate about it? --Jax 0677 (talk) 21:48, 12 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Hi @Jax 0677,
    There was consensus based on the fact that the page views makes Babita the primary topic over the rest in the DAB page. Though I gave a little weight to your proposal because the one you said of, was already in the DAB page and still not the primary topic. I hope you understand. Thanks. Safari ScribeEdits!

    Question from Alex.Dybala (20:14, 14 May 2024)[edit]

    Hi.

    I have added a table identical to this: http://en.wiki.x.io/wiki/Serie_A_Player_of_the_Month#Multiple_winners

    When I move it to the main Serie A page, it comes up, but not the flag. Can you help? --Alex.Dybala (talk) 20:14, 14 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Sure.  Done Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 20:58, 14 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    Thanks Alex.Dybala (talk) 21:30, 14 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Question from Alex.Dybala (21:50, 14 May 2024)[edit]

    I've added a new image of Paulo Dybala (I know I'm obsessed with him but thats besides the point) which can be used but when adding AS Roma tag below, no link appears. Could you fix and explain how I can for the future?

    Thanks --Alex.Dybala (talk) 21:50, 14 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    I have done that. It's wonderful you just entered Wikipedia and has known all of this like "piping", literally use of pipes (|). Have you edited previously with any other account? Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 21:58, 14 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    No I haven't. I just saw "Argentina national football| Argentina.
    I just want to be able to update any info I can do on my favourite topics :) Alex.Dybala (talk) 22:02, 14 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    Couldn't "Dybala in 2023" be changed to Dybala playing for (A.S Roma|AS Roma) in 2023 Alex.Dybala (talk) 22:04, 14 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    No, leave it as it is in the current state. Remember you can say "with football". Best, for images, it's written in the circa or date. Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 22:09, 14 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Question from Alex.Dybala (04:43, 15 May 2024)[edit]

    Is this normal? When I search up Paulo Dybala on the search bar, the face isn't centred in the photo. Is there anyway to fix that? --Alex.Dybala (talk) 04:43, 15 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Thats not the goal of Wikipedia. You can usually see images on the third image carousel of a Google panel. It isn't necessary and you should focus on editing or creating more articles that will be beneficial. Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 06:03, 15 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Rejection of new article[edit]

    I recently submitted a new article covering an emerging British feminist author which was rejected by you for not having reliable sources. I am confused by this decision, as the article included sourcing from several major news publications and publishing industry news outlets. Would you be able to explain your decision so I can improve the article? Arcadianlandscape (talk) 13:55, 15 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    It wasn't rejected, it was declined for further improvement. It is a different thing to say "rejected" (that the topic is off from Wikipedia policy and goal), while "declined" (is that it isn't so good for inclusion in the mainspace. More improvements will be done for that). I hope you understand the meaning of the two. However, it was declined as lacking reliable source at the time of submission. Thanks. Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 17:08, 15 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    Thanks for your reply and clarification. I am no clearer on the reliable sources issue: there were multiple news publications including The Times and The Bookseller (a well-respected journal of the publishing industry), so I am unsure how the assessment was made. Arcadianlandscape (talk) 21:21, 15 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    @Arcadianlandscape, you can also take a look at WP:RS for what we call reliable sources or the assessment here. You can also check WP:NAUTHOR, where we have the place to check whether the subject you're writing on meets that criteria. Regards. Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 21:25, 15 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    (talk page watcher) psst...the draft cites the other Times, SafariScribe—WP:THETIMES (generally reliable), not WP:TOI (questionable reliability). Rotideypoc41352 (talk · contribs) 11:06, 16 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    @SafariScribe Would it be possible for you to review the submission again? I am confident the revised submission meets the guidelines. Thanks in advance. Arcadianlandscape (talk) 12:26, 27 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Unexplained CSD tag removal and misuse of rollback[edit]

    Is there a particular reason you removed a CSD tag from Return to Oz(song)? I also noticed that you used rollback to do so, which doesn't fit any of the criteria listed at WP:ROLLBACKUSE.

    Your most recent rollback uses, ignoring those in which you were reverting yourself:

    If you keep up without being more careful about your rollback usage you will likely end up losing the perm. Pinging the granter (@Malinaccier) in case they wish to comment. Hey man im josh (talk) 16:12, 15 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    @Hey man im josh, I will take note of that. Thanks for the impactful concern. Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 17:10, 15 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    Hi @Hey man im josh, thanks for looping me in. SafariScribe, please make sure to only use rollback for obvious cases of vandalism. Basically, you should never use rollback any time that you ought to be writing an edit summary. If this pattern continues, any administrator can remove the permission without further warning, so please be careful. Malinaccier (talk) 18:53, 15 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    Thank you so much @Malinaccier, I will be more careful....What am I saying. I am already careful. Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 18:55, 15 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Tagging pages for speedy deletion[edit]

    Hello, SafariScribe,

    Please review Criteria for Speedy Deletion so you are better familiar with the criteria for speedy deletion. Do not tag pages for speedy deletion unless they meet a CSD criteria EXACTLY. You can not make up reasons why a page should be speedied. For example, redirects are not deleted because the page title is close to an article title. In fact, that is a good reason to create a redirect because it is close to an actual article title.

    It's very important if you are going to be patrolling to correctly tag pages for speedy deletion because they all need to be reviewed and it wastes other editors' time if they need to review and decline pages you have tagged for speedy deletion. The best way to avoid this is to know the CSD criteria so well that you get it right every time. Some of the criteria seem obvious but the wording for them is very precise so never guess, if you aren't sure then go to WP:CSD to confirm your suspicions. Thank you. Liz Read! Talk! 23:56, 16 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    @Liz, thanks for reminding me. I was a bit confused there, thank God it has been clarified and i'do be more careful in the future. Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 00:11, 17 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    It would be well pleased and comfortable if u contact me through my professional email. Defendersofhistory (talk) 12:45, 17 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    @Defendersofhistory If only you read what c:COM:NETCOPYVIO said before uploading those images. Without doing any personal explanation, let me copy-paste what it says here for you.

    :::The fact that an image has been posted to a publicly-available website does not give you implied permission to re-use it nor to upload it here. Many websites are silent on copyright issues, but images on those sites are just as off-limits as those on sites which explicitly say "Copyright, all rights reserved". Works are copyrighted by default in most countries due to their agreement with the c:Berne Convention; a copyright notice or a © sign is not needed.

    This is quite self-explanatory, do not pick images from random websites and upload to Commons unless you have been given the permission from the original owner of the image to reuse the image and it follows Commons' c:COM:LICENSE. Vanderwaalforces (talk) 12:46, 17 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    @VanderwaalforcesThanks for ur Kind Reply.. I want to inform you that, the so called image has been uploaded by me in my Instagram page and I have not issued any copyright to it so far. I have not borrowed or downloaded those images from any public platform. It has been uploaded by my team itself. If it's a copyright violation, fine let it be. I have no issues.

    I want it moved back and reopened. I have been planning to comment. It is obvious if you look back at the history of that discussion that it has been contentious for years and years. It should not have been closed prematurely. Only two people commented before the premature closure. Per WP:RMEC, RMs should "should remain open for at least seven days (168 hours)", with few exceptions —⁠ ⁠BarrelProof (talk) 12:56, 17 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    @BarrelProof, you seemed to be somewhat arguing as if my close wasn't correctly done. There is already a clear consensus and per same WP:RMEC, it's few days to the closure but still, there is already a consensus. I have requested the technical reversion of the move while you continue your edits thereafter. Thanks! Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 13:07, 17 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    While your intent in doing this was obviously in good faith, you were interrupting an ongoing conversation. There was no need to archive the discussion, and per WP:USERTALKSTOP should not have been done. The user had already expressed their desired changes on the article's talk page, and I was trying to assist the user without having a bunch of policy/guideline/essay pages thrown at them. Some of what I was expressing to them had nothing to do with the article directly, and had to do with Wikipedia in general as well. I have reverted your removal of the content. Let E-358-lit do that if they so choose to do so. Thanks, --Hammersoft (talk) 20:38, 17 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    @Hammersoft, Oh! My bad, sorry for the misinterpretation. If the discussion is still on course, please help me unarchive it. Thanks. Please I do hope you aren't angry? Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 20:42, 17 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    Angry? No. You're currently reading words coming from the master of screwups :) I've already undone the edits. With your approval, I can delete User talk:E-358-lit/Archive 1. Sound good? --Hammersoft (talk) 20:45, 17 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    What are you waiting for. Go on. Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 20:50, 17 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    Done. If that's not fast enough, see my complaint department :) Have a great day! --Hammersoft (talk) 20:52, 17 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    @Hammersoft, nobody answered me and I screamed to my self. For directing me wrongly, I'll have to stalk you. Off I go to your TP. 😂 Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 20:54, 17 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    Oh hell. I'm in for it now! Maybe I should preemptively archive my user talk page. Except, I don't have user talk archives. Uh oh! --Hammersoft (talk) 20:56, 17 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    Sorry @SafariScribe, I posted the same question below but blanked it since Hammersoft beat me to it. Fully understand your intention was to clean up some huge walls of text, especially since some of the comments were tagged as potential self promotion. I would only say that I don't think there are many cases where one should archive discussions on other people's talk pages. That could be very confusing to a newcomer as well, so it might be best to try to avoid it in the future. But, no harm no foul. Mokadoshi (talk) 20:57, 17 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    @Mokadoshi, thank you so much and have a good day. Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 21:02, 17 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    History[edit]

    I Hello, it would be better if u make a change in the history of the Diocese. It's now incomplete and mis leading. U may use the history in the official website of the diocese as a reliable source. Thank u Defendersofhistory (talk) 02:32, 18 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    • Defendersofhistory, I'm not SafariScribe (and I'm also not a "u"), but I have some questions here. You were talking, above, about things NOT being copyright violations--well, you can't just copy and paste things, and even if there had been the proper license (same with the Instagram pictures), this was not a good edit. This is an encyclopedia, not a copy of y'all's website. Now, when I look at Roman Catholic Diocese of Cochin, I see that SafariScribe has done a lot of work of exactly the kind that Wikipedians should be doing. I have not seen you work on that article, besides two small edits. Finally, no, the "official website of the diocese" is not automatically a reliable source, I'm afraid: it's a primary source, one that's obviously not neutral, which leads me to my last point--but that will be clear by the COI template I'm about to put on your talk page.

    Move request at talk:Valianivske[edit]

    I am not going to contest it, because it is useless, just to remark here that none of the supports is policy based (none of them tried to argue WP:COMMONNAME as required by the policy, which must have been the focus of the discussion), and that saying that I did not provide any evidence means that you have not looked at the article. Pretty bad close in my opinion. Ymblanter (talk) 08:09, 21 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    @Ymblanter, I noticed the move lacking "relist" after a certain period of time. I know where you are going to, however, I took the source presented by the nominator and the other "support" (against your rationale). I don't find what you argued as provided with no source and per Roman Spinner, the lede was as the proposed title sourced too. I know it was bad but I also want to know you're happy forgiving the mishap. Do you mind I do reopen it? Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 08:21, 21 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    Yes, I think it is fine to reopen. I do not necessarily argue against the move (otherwise I would have voted oppose), but I want the move to be based on policy-based arguments and not on opinions of users who in some way are affiliated with one side of the conflict. If there is no evidence of COMMONNAME at the moment, may be it should be closed as no consensus, and we can wait for the evidence. Thanks for considering this and being responsive. Ymblanter (talk) 08:31, 21 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    Sorry, forgot to comment about the lede. It is a remnant of an undiscussed move. Ymblanter (talk) 08:31, 21 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    @Ymblanter, I have reopened it and thanks for being diplomatic. I am worthy grateful. Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 08:42, 21 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    Great, thanks. Ymblanter (talk) 08:44, 21 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    It was of course just reclosed (the closer presumably thought it was reopened in error), and the same team of biased users went on to provide literally the same arguments for other pages. I just took all of them off my watchlist. Ymblanter (talk) 19:09, 23 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    @Ymblanter, I didn't see that, and I am so sorry. It's now I am seeing the closure and just thought of same too. Please don't remove them from your watchlist, they are needed for upkeep. I will reopen the discussion for further consensus because it's more than necessary. Thanks. Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 22:29, 23 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    @Ymblanter, I've also discussed it https://en.m.wiki.x.io/wiki/User_talk:Paine_Ellsworth#Talk:Valianivske#Requested_move_14_May_2024 and in any case if you insist, a new one could be opened or an informal discussion in the talk page. Any opinion? Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 01:20, 24 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    I would just let it go. If the current situation is that multiple closers move multiple pages on a request of two clearly partisan users who have no policy-based arguments, there is very little I can do about it. We just need to remember that this area of Wikipedia is full of propaganda which was deliberately added there. Ymblanter (talk) 05:31, 24 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    To be clear, SafariScribe, you can reopen an RM if you also revert the move. But reopening without reverting the move is what caused this to be a "malformed request".
    I also came here because I noticed you've been closing several RMs before 7 days have elapsed. When you do that, you should note that it is an early closure (WP:RMEC) and why you're closing it early. I would recommend not closing them early unless there is some special reason not to wait the standard 7 days. SilverLocust 💬 05:43, 27 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    @SilverLocust, thank you for that observance. However, I do close pages move request earlier when I know there is already a consensus. Thanks. Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 05:45, 27 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Thank you for your work on Draft:David Wicht[edit]

    Forgive my curiosity, may I ask what prompted you to take the task on?

    The reason I ask is that the creating editor first solicited me on my talk page to write this article, presumably for pay since she is a paid editor, and then asked me where she might find other editors willing to write the article, presumably for pay.

    I am not casting aspersions on your motives, nor am I accusing you of writing this for pay. I think the draft needed the massive improvements you are bringing to it. 🇺🇦 FiddleTimtrent FaddleTalk to me 🇺🇦 09:44, 21 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Ah! Now I understand. I see you were prompted by kindness. Thank you, and, perhaps, please forgive my impertinence. 🇺🇦 FiddleTimtrent FaddleTalk to me 🇺🇦 09:47, 21 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    @Timtrent, you were the one who inspired me to take in that draft. I was about replying an edit at AFC/help board and saw your comments, which made me to look at your contributions and then to talk. Seeing the draft also, I saw your comment of passing FILM PRODUCER. Welp, I wasn't invited my anyone but I hate seeing much comment without helping the draft. I also know I am not looking at any payment because if so, I would have not being happy with the editor since I hate paid editing. I just use my time making a difference, such unwanted to make in Simon Ekpa, and the many from the ongoing peer review on Adichie. Look the the editors talk page too and see my message there. Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 09:50, 21 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    Yes, after I posted I saw your interaction with the creating editor. I see true altruism in you. I do hope your work doesn't allow her to be paid. She deserves no pay for the work she has done.
    Probably, it would be wise to submit it for review after you have made it as good as you can, and allow it to sink or swim. I think it will swim. Other eyes are always good when we finish a difficult task. I will not review it again, though it is now in a radically different state after your excellent and brutal edits 🇺🇦 FiddleTimtrent FaddleTalk to me 🇺🇦 10:01, 21 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    I am sad too to see myself edit for an editor who will make no impact. But aside from that, if we don't help out, though she/they are loosing but it doesn't leave the fact that the article may be notable and it's out of good faith. Thanks for that as we all help in clearing the heavy backlog. It as much love cleaning up articles, it leaves me with joy of seeing good and neat articles. Thanks for the encouragement.

    It was declined because it has less source to establish notability. I may look at the draft later. Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 06:22, 22 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    Thank u so much 117.230.51.220 (talk) 06:25, 22 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    i have made some changes in the draft article with citation. please check it ASAP
    Thanks 137.97.110.177 (talk) 07:30, 22 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    The sources you added still doesn't show the article meets our notability guidelines per WP:ORG. However per WP:NSCHOOL, a existence of a school which I have confirmed doesn't mean that school merits an article. So your draft has been redirected to the subject topic. Thank you. Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 09:15, 22 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    ok. can i get back that draft in order to work on it as per the rules 2409:4073:4D18:ED99:E8AC:FFE5:D97B:99D0 (talk) 09:28, 22 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    It would be well and good if I get back that draft so that I can work on it and publish it without a redirect.
    Please. 117.230.7.108 (talk) 13:54, 22 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    Redirecting is the best option here as when you may have publish it to mainspace, it will be deleted or redirected. That's usual per WP:SCHOOLOUTCOME. Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 18:23, 22 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    A tag has been placed on Boots (Dora the Explorer) (disambiguation) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G14 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a disambiguation page which either

    • disambiguates only one extant Wikipedia page and whose title ends in "(disambiguation)" (i.e., there is a primary topic);
    • disambiguates zero extant Wikipedia pages, regardless of its title; or
    • is an orphaned redirect with a title ending in "(disambiguation)" that does not target a disambiguation page or page that has a disambiguation-like function.

    Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such pages may be deleted at any time. Please see the disambiguation page guidelines 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. 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.

    How to edit semi protect pages. --User : God devotee 12:45, 29 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Hello @God devotee, and welcome to Wikipedia. To make an edit to a semi-protected page, you have to make the edit request per WP:PP if you are a new user or for any level of protection.
    You can do that by clicking the blue button.

    Page mover[edit]

    It looks like you may need page mover rights soon, given your WP:RM closures (meeting the third criterion at WP:PMCRITERIA). Obviously, you have made more than 3,000 edits, meeting the second criterion. The only problem is that you have not yet been a registered user for at least 6 months, so you may ask for those rights as soon as July 13 or later (to meet the first criterion), if you answer "no" for the following question (meeting the fourth criterion):

    Have you had any recent behavioral blocks or WP:3RR violations?

    GTrang (talk) 16:48, 29 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Thank you @GTrang. I have had such an invitation in the early days but as it stands, I don't meet the criterion 1 of WP:PMCRITERIA. I wouldn't mind reaching the six months. Thanks. Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 17:04, 29 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Hi, thank you for your contributions. I'll note that your close of this discussion is premature; RMs should stay open at least 7 days. 162 etc. (talk) 17:04, 29 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Per WP:RMEC, the closure is considerable as WP:SNOWCLOSE. I have also made up not closing earlier than expected. I appreciate your kind intentions and who am I not to incorporate them. Thank you. Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 17:10, 29 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    Clearly, I support the end result, since I proposed the move. However, less than 48 hours (!) is not enough time for an RM, even though all the editors involved thus far have supported the proposed title. Not everybody is on this website on a daily basis, and others should have the time to be involved too. 162 etc. (talk) 19:03, 29 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    I get it. Even if you weren't the proposer, there is always need that I shall reopen (which I will not live to do after cautions). Great thanks 162 etc. Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 19:15, 29 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    Please also stop closing/relisting RMs after 6 days. WP:RMEC is very clear about what it means by 7 days: 168 hours. That is, when the request is below WP:RMC#Elapsed listings. There was no reason, for example, to close Talk:Theodore Morse 22 hours early with only 3 participants. SilverLocust 💬 04:38, 2 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    @SilverLocust, I am not doubting your good faith intentions and previous correction. However, I also know that when a move request is highly likely to be 'move', onw should go ahead and same applicable vice versa. I don't think there will be move review for that. Thanks. Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 04:49, 2 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    I was writing a reply at the technical request before it was withdrawn, so I'll just put it here.
    The norm is for RMs to be left open for 7 days so that people have that opportunity to see the discussion. Some editors, including me, will check RMs more often when they are near elapsing (6–7 days) to see if we want to comment, rather than when they were first opened. There have been several times that I have opposed an uncontested request after six or seven days. "It can sometimes be better to allow a few extra days even if current discussion seems very clearly to hold one opinion, to avoid precluding significant input and as a courtesy to ensure that it really will be a snowball" (emphasis added) (quoting WP:RMEC).
    And it's not enough that the request looks obviously correct, unless "there is clearly no need at all to prolong discussion further" (emphasis added). For example, a snow close may be useful when the request is nonsensical, or when it is actively wasting the time of many users, or when it is a repeat request of a recently closed RM.
    It is considerably more common to have a "not moved. WP:SNOW" closure [1] than a "moved. WP:SNOW" closure [2], since WP:SNOW is more focused on when "an issue has no chance of succeeding". It's much easier to conclude that an argument that has been made has no possible chance of success rather than that all possible counterarguments that nobody has yet offered have no chance of success.)
    Also, early closures should have a closing comment that makes clear that it was closed early, so that people are aware of that. This can be as simple as adding the comment "WP:SNOW" after the result. SilverLocust 💬 04:01, 3 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    Now I grasp the major points. Thank you many times @SilverLocust. Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 04:04, 3 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Question from Lauder12 (07:04, 31 May 2024)[edit]

    Hello! Somebody wrote an article about my grandfather (he was an Armenian painter) in Armenian language. Now i started working on organizing his legacy and wanted to translate the page about him to English, but the system says i can't do that because i don't have experience. I wonder if you can suggest what to do in this situation --Lauder12 (talk) 07:04, 31 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    If your grandfather is notable, writing about him may infringe our rule on WP:COI. I can help but will check if he is notable. May I get the link? Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 07:10, 31 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    Oh! Do you mean this. It's quite notable though I want say I am good in translation. I saw the name from your user page and per WP:COMMONSENSE. I will draft it first to AFC and subsequently analyse the notability. Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 07:14, 31 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    AFC Champions League 2 move[edit]

    I'm confused because I was showing Support to move AFC Champions League -2AFC Champions League Two – not to AFC Cup. At first, it was announced as AFC Champions League 2, but was later officially branded as AFC Champions League Two. So the article title should be AFC Champions League Two. That appears to be what the majority are supporting. So why has it gone back to the AFC Cup article name when you moved it? Matilda Maniac (talk) 14:16, 31 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Like I said, It is still waiting at WP:RM/TR. Just wait a while. Thanks for reminding me of redirecting the AFC Champions League -2, I will do that now. Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 14:25, 31 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Closing moves[edit]

    Hi, I reverted your closing of the discussion at Talk:Sudanese civil war (2023–present)#Requested move 26 May 2024, as it was closed improbably. You closed the discussion as "no consensus" which does not represent the discussion. Please refer to Wikipedia:Requested moves/Closing instructions#Non-admin closure which states that Anyone, administrator or not, who wishes to close a requested move must be very familiar with the policies and guidelines associated with it (especially Wikipedia:Article titles, Wikipedia:Disambiguation, and Wikipedia:Consensus), and ideally will have participated in several move requests previously.

    Your closure of the discussion as "no consensus" does not reflect the discussion that has taken place, I am not sure if that was by accident or not. But your closure looks like a supervote which a discretion reserved for admins but even then, they will explain in details why they reached a certain opinion that is not obvious from the discussion.

    How that make sense and I did not close the move discussion as I was involved the discussion, but feel free to go back and close the move properly. FuzzyMagma (talk) 08:46, 2 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    That's okay by me. I know no matter which way, a review will still be initiated. Many thanks. Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 08:51, 2 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    No, not necessarily. This one was a dry cut.
    In general, maybe it is better to participate more in AfD discussion (although I see you have plenty of experience) and other move discussion before jumping to closing. Tbh I am still not sure why you closed the discussion as no consensus. Maybe you want to elaborate more? FuzzyMagma (talk) 08:58, 2 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    (talk page stalker) @FuzzyMagma In fact, your revert is not appropriate. When one disagrees with an RM closure, we initiate the Wikipedia:Move review process. You should have indeed asked @SafariScribe to revert themselves stating your reason. — DaxServer (t·m·e·c) 08:59, 2 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    @DaxServer that is one way to do that, and if @SafariScribe explained here that they believe the closure was not a mistake, I will revert my revert and escalate to Wikipedia:Move review.
    Given SafariScribe experience, I am operating under the assumption that the closure was a mistake because it does not make any sense. I mean that is why I am here, to discuss FuzzyMagma (talk) 09:03, 2 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    In the future, please do not revert the closures, despite what you assume. Ask the closure to revert and if they disagree we move for a review. — DaxServer (t·m·e·c) 09:06, 2 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    ok, noted. @SafariScribe please let me know if you want me to reinstate your edit FuzzyMagma (talk) 09:07, 2 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    @DaxServer, thank you for the reminder. I thought so when I saw the revert but I have no say because I know @FuzzyMagma will leave a message hence, I could have questioned either. I have had much experience in page moving and closing but this one is just though and with a strong spirit, concluding that it will still be closed near as I do. @FuzzyMagma, DaxServer is correct. Before reverting ones edit which is not obvious vandalism, first know why before reverting and even, before going to WP:MOVEREVIEW. I have no problem reverting my edits like I said earlier, it's just that today is Sunday in mt time zone and who am I not to cheer up. I was sleep deprived but ate a lot this morning. @DaxServer, thank you also. Will both of you want a cookie? Of course I will! Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 09:23, 2 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    (talk page stalker) SafariScribe, Happy Sunday and I hope you’re enjoying your day :). Mistakes have been made (by both of you) but it’s not too late to go for move review. So, do you want FuzzyMagma to revert his reversion and go to move review, or let it be closed by someone else? Vanderwaalforces (talk) 09:42, 2 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    Happy Sunday too. Let it be closed by someone else. We've settled that issue. No one is going for a review as the discussion is still open and everybody is cool. The weather is cold to talk much. FuzzyMagma behaved matured enough by fixing it himself. However, there were few mistakes DaxServer has corrected. Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 09:46, 2 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Regarding this action, did you (or someone else) discuss with the admin who salted it? It's now landed at several different admin boards. DMacks (talk) 15:28, 12 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Didn't see the salting reason of the proposed page although I had moved it without reading the move rationale. I could have checked the history.

    This is surely one of your interests. I should have earlier informed you but it's never too late. It's a new article which I created and it needs expansion. You would help? (Chat With Term)talk 17:07, 13 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    I saw that you draftified this page. The draftification was highly inappropriate. I was, as a matter of fact, already reviewing this and I am sure you're aware of that. I am sure you did not review this article, or you were just hurriedly trying to take it off the NPP queue (and putting it in the AfC queue?). I would have done that if the article was that bad or had serious problems, but I didn't because I thought and still think the few issues are ones that could be fixed right at mainspace without draftifying it. Remember, marking an article as reviewed does not mean you're giving it complete approval, and you must not mark every article you see as reviewed, you could simply leave it for someone else to review. If you're not sure of a reason to take it to articles for deletion, you're not sure of a CSD tag to use and you're not going to ask someone else, then draftifying it will not be the best thing either. Kindly move it back to mainspace as your draftification was inappropriate and wasn't the best thing to do. Vanderwaalforces (talk) 20:52, 13 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    I'm sorry to have stepped your toes while you may have been waking the floor (override). First off correction, no one was in haste to remove the article from the queue. To be honest, I actually reviewed the article and I would say it was written well but the sources never supported the article. As you have informed me, it's best you review it as a draft because it has gross sourcing issue. However if you insist, please go ahead and move back the draft. So much sorry for the early inconvenience. Cheers! Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 21:00, 13 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Wasim Abu Salem Draft - Questions & help[edit]

    Hello @SafariScribe,

    Thank you for the review, I appreciate all that you do at Wikipedia as an editor, it is people like you that keep it going strong. Regardless of anything I just wanted to mention that.

    You mentioned in the comments that the sources in the article might be close to the subject, if you take a look at the sources used, they are almost 100% secondary sources from independent publications:

    - One of the sources is Textbook used in high schools all over Israel to teach Arabic, it is taught to 60,000 kids each year as part of their curriculum and has been taught since 2018 covering around 400,000 students to date

    - Another source is an article on MSN, a prominent and widely-read site

    - A ton of additional sources are legitimate news organizations that have done profiles on this person, see: Mako, The Marker, The Jerusalem Post

    The subject has founded a tech-movement that has taught 26,000 students across 3 countries(Israel, USA, UK), I belive Wikipedia is the place for such a person to be highlighted, I look forward to hearing from you. MoMit (talk) 07:27, 14 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    I have tagged the page as having some issues to fix, as a part of our page curation process and note that:

    Can you help me understand the rejection better here. Re: reliable sources, this are very legitimate publications I've included. There is more coverage on the man, but I pared it down to the most known, vetted, and credible publications. They verify the content and establish that Rossi is a film director of a significant release. What more can I do?

    SinemaBuff (talk) 16:58, 15 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Hi @SinemaBuff, I just happened upon this comment and can give you my 2c as another AfC reviewer: we don't normally have articles on people notable for only one creation unless they are really notable for that one thing (think Harper Lee and To Kill a Mockingbird). For a single creation, we'd usually write a little bit on the article on that work instead. You might want to adapt the two sentences you have at the beginning of "career" to put into Heaven Adores You. But that's from 2014 - he's had a whole decade to make other films. There's really nothing more recent that has also attracted critical attention? -- asilvering (talk) 18:03, 16 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Biographies of academics[edit]

    Hi there! Thanks for helping out at AfC. I just resubmitted and accepted an academic biography you declined, H. Glenn Penny. When you write a decline comment for this sort of article, could you please avoid suggesting things like remove the primary sources or ones directly connected to the article? It's actually fine to have sources that are directly connected to the subject, so telling someone to remove all of them will really confuse new editors. You're correct that the article didn't have any independent sources, so something like "please add sources that are not connected to the subject" would have been fine. However, for academics who have written a few books, since they're almost certainly notable (as you noted), more helpful would be to explain specifically what is needed, with a comment like "can you please provide citations to academic reviews of the subject's books?"

    Even better, you might want to save the submitter some aggravation and just go ahead and add some qualifying reviews yourself so that they meet WP:NAUTHOR and you can accept it. For historians it's usually very easy to find some qualifying reviews with a search on google scholar or jstor, so you don't need to dig very hard or have access to any special databases. This is what I did for that article and it took me less time than it's taken me to write this comment. Easy fix and helps the other editor a lot. -- asilvering (talk) 17:57, 16 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Well written @Asilvering I have gotten the comment and will use it when necessary. Though I have taken a lot of draft up after accepting them because I know they were created by new editors, who may not have understood the guidelines. Thank you for getting it right. I even had planned on adding sources to that article. Cheers! Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 18:26, 16 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Hey,

    I moved this back to draft, partially due to you moving it to main space and immediately redirecting this, as it wasn't clear why this had been done. I actually thought it was a mistake, which was partially why I moved it back!

    Personally, I feel this is the worst of both worlds - the user thinks the submission has been accepted but they then wonder why they can't see it, per their post on their talk page either. Plus it makes it much harder for them to improve the article after, as you've taken away the one place they have to work on it!

    Personally, AfD wasn't going to add anything here, so I've moved it back. Feel free to restore the redirect (which, IMO, you should have created without moving to mainspace), but this sort of "accept then blank" really doesn't help. Mdann52 (talk) 18:23, 16 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Yes, it was confusing accepting and redirecting immediately. I reverted the redirect so that the editor can improve the article further with reminder that another editor can draftify it. The confusion is hat the new editor is confused between an article being accepted and an article being reviewed/patrolled. In a helping hand, I thought redirecting will save the article as obviously there isn't ah source from my digging to maintain a stand alone BLP. Maybe because the creator is a newbie. I understood your actions, and thanks for helping out. Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 18:32, 16 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Hello, you've recently declined the article submission for Draft:Jonathan Demme's unrealized projects, the reason being that it "does not have sufficient content to require an article of it's own." The reason I have brought up this issue on your talk page is due to the fact that two other articles Ben Affleck's unrealized projects and Francis Lawrence's unrealized projects were today placed in the main space Category:lists of unrealized projects by artist, and I must ask, am I missing something? What do those two pages have that the Demme page doesn't have that warrants their acceptance, and what can I do to change or alter the Demme page so that it could be moved to the main space?

    Declined draft[edit]

    You declined draft:list of grenades for not being supported by enough reliable sources. I guess I'm under the impression that sources for lists like this one come from the individual articles for each entry. WP:LISTVERIFY says that obviously appropriate material doesn't require inline citations and I see similar stuff in most every list under Lists of weapons. Most articles in that list of lists do not cite something for each entry. I want to know if I should go add a citation to everything despite the majority of entries having their own article, or if maybe the few sources I did have from original research aren't trustworthy? SourPieMe (talk) 05:42, 22 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    While WP:MINREF isn't required, a good reliable source per WP:RS at least two or three is required for such non existent list. The sources in the draft is not reliable. Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 07:03, 22 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Hello SafariScribe, I appreciate your feedback on my article, however, I would appreciate some clarification about my sources.

I really have no intention of being contentious, I just want to clarify what specifically needs to be changed. I will place my comments on the sources below, numbered as they are in the article, and would appreciate your reply. Thank you for all the work you do contributing to AfC.

    Best,

    esmb17

    [1] - This source is from her own website, so yea its's a no-go. The information is indisputable, and I can cite it from somewhere else.

    [2] - This publication is extremely meh, however, it is an interview. Are interviews not valid sources?

    [3] - This is a respectable Japanese language publication focused on news, reviews, and interviews related to Japanese literature. However, it is an interview. Are interviews not valid sources?

    [4] - This is from the university she graduated from listing members of her graduating class and their dissertations. This source is fine.

    [5] - This is from a museums webpage archive. I'd be surprised if this was a no-go.

    [6] - The information is about a publishing house she founded. Source is from it's own website. It seems fine to me for citing the mission of an organization, but I see how this could be bad.

    [7] - This is a company's own record of a project she was credited on as an illustrator. I don't see why this is not valid for proof of something the subject did.

    [8] - This is a respectable Japanese language publication focused on news, reviews, and interviews related to Japanese literature. Pretty sure this is fine.

    [9] - This is a respectable academic institution's blurb about her work. However, because she is associated with it, is this valid?

    [10] - This is a book review from a respectable (albeit not very academic) magazine. Is this an issue?

    [11] - This is a literary magazine. I'm not sure why this would not be ok to use.

    [12] - Yea this source sucks.

    [13] - This is a respectable academic institution's blurb about her work. However, because she is associated with it, is this is valid?

    [14] - Same source as 11. Esmb17 (talk) 23:38, 23 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Hi @Esmb17! I hope SafariScribe won't mind if I jump in and respond to some of your questions. What you are trying to do is to establish your subject is notable in Wikipedia terms, which are not quite like Normal People In The Real World terms, so most likely when you hear 'not reliable sources' what we mean is 'these can't be used as evidence that she's notable' for whatever reason. Since I'm not an AFC reviewer like SafariScribe, I can't answer every question, I'm sorry - but I can get the majority for you.
    So a few notes: interviews can't be used as evidence of notability; you can use them in very limited ways, such as if she gave her birthdate or birthplace, things that aren't contentious in any way. Interviews are not independent of the subject, which is a vital component of reliability. Biographies or promotional information from companies she has worked for or currently works for can't be used either because they're also not independent.
    4) says she graduated, which you could probably use as evidence that it happened, but it's not enough for notability.
    7) does tell us that she was part of the project, but it's not significant coverage (ie the text is not mostly about her, as opposed to the project) and it's not independent (the company employed her), so this can't be used.
    8) has a similar problem to 7), in that the text isn't about her, it's about something she created - if you were writing an article about Trinity, Trinity, Trinity, this would probably be great! But you are writing about Kobayashi, so this doesn't help with notability either. (Maybe you do want to think about writing articles about her various works - it seems like her art and writing is reviewed often and with good sources)
    10) is also about her writing - there's some tantalizing hints of information about the author, but not enough. 11)/14) has the same problem. None can be used.
    13) Yep, you got it - she's associated with the institution, and they're promoting something, so this also can't be used.
    I hope this has been of assistance to you, and if SafariScribe disagrees with me please do heed their words over mine - they are far more experienced and probably spent much longer assessing your draft. Best of luck with your draft - and seriously, think about whether you'd be interested in drafting articles about Kobayashi's works, because there's definitely at least a few reliable sources for them.

    Draft:Oğuz Alper Öktem[edit]

    Hi, Draft:Oğuz Alper Öktem article declined. I tried with translate from trwiki, but I failed, so I entered it directly. He have a article on trwiki. He have so much references on Türkiye. I kindly ask you to review it again. Kulaklibaykus (talk) 10:40, 24 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    I see its s problem of poor translation. Though having many references doesn't make an article notable if it isn't. However I see a clue of being notable, hence my decline ("not reject"). I will help you with the formatting and clear translation. Cheers! @Kulaklibaykus. Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 10:48, 24 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    Hi again @SafariScribe, I added some new references. Please help for formatting and translation.
    I don't have so much information about notable. If you can inform me needs about notable, He can be seen in many areas. TV, talks, news exc. Cheers! :) Kulaklibaykus (talk) 21:49, 28 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    @SafariScribe, "Reminder".. Thx. :) Kulaklibaykus (talk) 11:34, 4 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Hi Safari:Scribe, you commented, that some areas of my article need more citation. I'd like to do so. Unfortunately I can't see where it makes sense to add more citations, as in my eyes every single part in the article is cited. At the same time, it is said that not reliable sources were used. I cannot recognise any such sources. What are they? Please help. I'd be happy to get some hints from you. Thanks! Musicandarts64 (talk) 15:30, 24 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Hi @Musicandarts64,
    Your draft wasn't properly sourced with WP:SECONDARYSOURCES, which helps in verifying especially for a WP:BLP. The sources mostly were primarily works of Axel and cannot except in rare cases use to verify some of his achievements. Please remove them and add them to his "publications". If you still need my help, I am open to assist you. Cheers! Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 07:38, 25 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    Hi Safari:Scribe. Thanks for your comments, they help me a lot. I have removed almost all of Lange's primary sources und a lot of text except for the short passages that describe in one sentence each what he has published scientifically. Should these also be removed, please let me know. But could the three sentences describing Lange's work in tez chapter "Scientific cntribution" also remain without a source? However, I think that the ratio of primary to secondary resources is now much better than before. -- I have also removed all the reviews published on the back cover of Lange's book, as I assume that these are not reliable sources from Wikipedia either. Please take another look at the draft and tell me if you think I can publish it again. Thank you very much. Musicandarts64 (talk) 11:45, 25 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Hi SafariScribe I have revised the article as you suggested. All primary sources are removed, the article is resubmitted. Please review the article! Thank you.

    Hello, SafariScribe! A few hours before you closed the above move request, I had dropped a note at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Disambiguation#Requested move at Talk:Ray Brown (Negro leagues pitcher)#Requested move 17 June 2024 to try to get some opinions on WP:INCDAB & WP:PDAB since the editors who were quoting those never said how the move violated them. Would you mind undoing your close and let it run for awhile? Rgrds. --BX (talk) 03:50, 25 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Editor experience invitation[edit]

    Hi Safari Scribe :) I'm looking for experienced editors to interview here. Feel free to pass if you're not interested. Clovermoss🍀 (talk) 21:58, 25 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Can I just point out that this is completely non-standard disambiguation. Bill Jones (Indiana State football coach) would be far more standard and was supported by four of the participants. -- Necrothesp (talk) 10:31, 26 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    No! The support was for the proposed title and partially for Bill Jones (Indiana State football coach). However I have moved the both articles to Bill Jones (Notre Dame football coach) and Bill Jones (Indiana State football coach) as they are the standard name. Thank you for reminding me. Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 12:31, 26 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    Actually, Hameltion and myself supported "Indiana State football coach". Crouch, Swale, and Ortizesp supported "American football coach, Indiana State", which frankly mystifies me given they're both experienced editors and presumably know that's not how we title articles. BarrelProof and Roman Spinner supported either depending on which way consensus went. But thank you for moving to the usual format. -- Necrothesp (talk) 12:53, 26 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Draft Article Herman Klynveld declined?[edit]

    Hi Safari talk. I am a bit confused. I spoke to the previous reviewer who had a look and confirmed that it was correct. He advised me to use English names. I am now confused why these aren't reliable sources? I have included links where you can easily view the books and search the pages where reference is made. Please advise. 197.95.151.153 (talk) 15:18, 26 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Specie vs species[edit]

    Re the SD you put on an article: Specie in a monetary term. Species is a taxonomic rank, and is both singular and plural. - UtherSRG (talk) 02:00, 28 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    My bad. Thank you. Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 02:11, 28 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    On that same article, you should not have accepted it. We don't have multiple articles for the same species; alternate names and synonyms get mentioned or discussed in the single article. The draft should have been redirect to the existing article and maybe a note given to the author to work there. And don't feel bad... I hadn't noticed either. XD - UtherSRG (talk) 11:46, 28 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    The redirect appeared to have been in place based on the page history, but I wasn't aware of it. I accepted it, assuming it would pass AFD at the very least as a redirect. Thanks too, and I noticed that Justlettersandnumbers has restored "the original version." Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 12:11, 28 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    Yup, that's how I found out. When accepting over a redirect, it should be our responsibility to check what that redirect is going to. Sometimes it's going to a less-specific article, in which case the accept is correct. In this case, it was going to a synonym, so it wasn't correct. The same author had another draft accepted that should have been a redirect instead, and that's been fixed now, too. I left the user a note about mentioning/discussing synonyms in an existing article instead of creating new articles/drafts.
    Note "should be"... cos the typical AFC crowd won't take more responsibility further than "would it pass AFD in a vaccuum". Often times other existing articles are not taken into account when making this determination.
    Ah well... it's all good. We're a better encyclopedia today than we were on Monday. And we'll be even better next week... ;) - UtherSRG (talk) 12:18, 28 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    I love that spirit. Noted that "it isn't all about AFD". Take care UtherSRG, and a good weekend! Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 12:23, 28 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Hi[edit]

    Hey @SafariScribe, can you check again Draft:Lal Mohan Pati's articles? He is super-duper notable as WP:NPOL, Thanks Youknowwhoistheman (talk) 06:50, 29 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    This subject meets NPOL simply by the nature of their office but the article is far from being written neutrally. -- D'n'B-t -- 07:14, 29 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    I have fixed the neutrality issues. @Youknowwhoistheman, also know when to add up to three sources or not, to avoid WP:OVERKILL. Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 07:30, 29 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    Thank you @SafariScribe, Cheers and happy editing! Youknowwhoistheman (talk) 07:45, 29 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Draft: Massif Press[edit]

    Hi SafariScribe, I notice you reviewed Draft:Massif Press and marked the submission as declined without providing a comment beyond the pro forma response. Could you provide some clarity on that decision? The original submission was previously declined for insufficient sourcing, so I took some time to go through the relevant policies and find additional references. I was pretty confident that the article meets the criteria in terms of having multiple published sources that are in depth/reliable/secondary/independent (for example, Dicebreaker, Rock Paper Shotgun, and Bell of Lost Souls are all pretty significant as far as sources go), so the decline without comment is confusing to me. It would be useful to understand your reasoning so I can make appropriate changes if necessary. Kastark (talk) 07:54, 29 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    The decline box shows the reason for not accepting the draft. Unfortunately the sources doesn't meet WP:RS, hence my decline. Some of them that are unreliable include Bell of Lost Souls, Geek Native, itch.io, Goonhammer, and many. Cheers! Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 08:01, 29 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    Okay but what I am asking is why you think the sources don't meet WP:RS, as you've not given any reasoning. The pro forma is not really sufficient or helpful to someone trying to create an article and I'd like to ask you to be more specific. Putting aside for the moment that I disagree that some of the ones you've mentioned are unreliable (these are fairly notable sources within the industry, though I understand you might be personally unfamili
