TriGranit COI

Hi, May I ask you to either remove the two templates from this article about TriGranit, either point out the issues you have with it? Obviously it was not my (nor the company's) intention to create or maintain advertisement or any statement that is not in compliance with Wikipedia's guidelines. I am more than willing to better this article. Thank you for your guidance! Repassyz (talk) 08:41, 25 October 2017 (UTC)

What is your relationship to the company? Language like A new milestone in the life of the TriGranit. is not appropriate (and is not a complete sentence). The article also contains a lot of unsourced content. — JJMC89 02:43, 26 October 2017 (UTC)
I was asked (hired if you like) by TriGranit to upload relevant information on the company. (Bc they don't know how to edit Wikipedia (and all the rules) and they don't have the capacity to do it.) I asked them to provide third party sources and did my best to collect some more myself. The sentence you quote is in 'Hunglish' and should be deleted or corrected. English is not our native language. In Hungarian we use hidden verbs sometimes. I am not sure how to proceed with the 'unsourced content' you mention. Should I collect neutral sources for ALL sentences? Will you provide me a list of the sentences you think should be given a source? IMHO the article does not wish to state anything that is obviuosly untrue, the purpose of most of the content is to give the readers a context on TriGranit's overall role in the industry. Therefore I don't think adding a third party source for every building TriGranit has built is a necessity. Anything can be googled in the native languages too. Nevertheless I will improve the article if you can help me how. Thanks! Repassyz (talk) 13:51, 3 November 2017 (UTC)
You should also read our conflict of interest guideline and not edit the article directly. — JJMC89 03:16, 4 November 2017 (UTC)

Ernest Gustav Brandon-Cremer

Hi JJMC89, you are a better editor than I am for sure, and have a better understanding of WP:MOS than I do, but I see you have removed where Ernest Gustav was born, and now it is nowhere in the article. scope_creep (talk) 23:24, 28 October 2017 (UTC)

@Scope creep: I'm not really a MOS guy, but MOS:INTRO and MOS:OPENPARA have some guidance. If it wasn't anywhere besides the lead, then it shouldn't be in the lead since the lead should summarize the article. If there is a source for it, then it should be added back to the early life section. — JJMC89 00:29, 29 October 2017 (UTC)
Gentlemen, before you both continue to persist in 'tweaking' this article, maybe you should chat with me before changing context you know nothing about. By the way, the partial filmography had sources for each film. Someone removed them all. Its not the first time smart thinking people reverted links etc then others exclaimed they were missing. Leebrandoncremer —Preceding undated comment added 11:25, 7 November 2017 (UTC)
I also refer you to Ernest Brandon-Cremers friend and co-worker at Cinesound Frank Hurley, so you can better understand where my thought processes were based. Leebrandoncremer —Preceding undated comment added 11:28, 7 November 2017 (UTC)
You don't own the article. Take the discussion to the article talk page. — JJMC89 15:19, 7 November 2017 (UTC)

Vanishing talk?

The talk page I was forced to? I can't find it. A semi-protected page that needed some light shed on light (Einstein). His math versus v<c also shows kinetic energy lessens as a mass's velocity lessens, and more. An addition, not a simple X->Y thing. Einstein's math was simple and all I did was multiply both sides of his equation and say: Looky there! Looky there! Looky there!:

And I can't find the editing request I submitted. It is referenced but the ref sends me to not-my-stuff.

Hunh?! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Eleaticus (talkcontribs) 00:03, 9 November 2017 (UTC)

You made an empty edit request. It was declined and can be seen at Talk:Speed of light#Semi-protected edit request on 8 November 2017 (permalink). It was probably empty because you typed your request inside a HTML comment (<!--...-->). — JJMC89 02:20, 12 November 2017 (UTC)

Your bot

Does your bot assess articles? I am finding lots of moves (okay by me) and then notices of assessments. I don't care one way or another, I just want to know if this is normal. Thanks. Barbara (WVS)   12:09, 9 November 2017 (UTC)

Hi Barbara. My bot does not make any article assessments. The moves were for task 14. — JJMC89 02:23, 12 November 2017 (UTC)


After a 2-3 day career as a likely paid editor, Clapwong has been permanently banned as a sockpuppet. Just thought you might like to know, if you weren't aware. Activist (talk) 11:55, 16 November 2017 (UTC)

Wikinews importer to es and cawiki

Hi! Maybe I'm wrong writting here but I think because the succesfull experience and work importing news from enwikinews to enwiki can we do the same to other languages like spanish or catalan (my language)? Tell me something and keep in touch. Regards.--Manlleus (talk) 18:57, 6 November 2017 (UTC)

Hi, Manlleus. It is possible to run it for other language projects. See User:JJMC89 bot/Wikinews importer for how it works. I don't know how strict cawiki is with bots, but is there consensus for it? I already have the bot flag there. Would I need to request review of this new task? (Mi español es pobre. No hablo catalán.) I'm busy IRL, so I may be slow to respond. — JJMC89 05:30, 7 November 2017 (UTC)

Reza Izad & Dan Weinstein

Hi! After you initially tagged the two articles with maintenance templates I negotiated their return to draftspace by talking with their creator (who turned out to be a paid editor as I suspected and I got him to disclose that fact properly as well) so that they could go through the AfC process and be reviewed for neutrality and notability before being published in order to avoid vague, lingering tags. I noticed you have re-added both notability tags but still without explaining what issues you may believe the pages have. Please revert the vague unexplained tags or even better, post your detailed analysis and concerns on the respective talk pages so that they articles can be improved this week and cease being tainted by unexplained maintenance tags. Thanks in advance! :) Ben · Salvidrim! (PAID) 07:53, 17 November 2017 (UTC)

I don't know if you're just been busy elsewhere on Wikipedia, and I'm sorry to insist, but I'd really rather hear your thoughts and engage in discussion because I don't wanna get into any sort of fight or conflict over unexplained tags. :p Thanks! ^_^ Ben · Salvidrim! (PAID) 02:07, 18 November 2017 (UTC)
The sourcing in the articles doesn't come close to establishing notability for either of them. Since my searches didn't find anything better, I've sent them to AfD. — JJMC89 22:57, 18 November 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for responding! :) Ben · Salvidrim! (PAID) 23:05, 18 November 2017 (UTC)


Is this the thing that summons AnomieBOT? —usernamekiran(talk) 11:41, 21 November 2017 (UTC)

@Usernamekiran: No, that would be Category:Wikipedia templates to be automatically substituted, which is added by {{subst only|auto=yes}}. See WP:SAFESUBST for information on it. — JJMC89 15:11, 21 November 2017 (UTC)
I the category before contacting you. But in the history of the template, I can't see the category being added.  usernamekiran(talk) 17:20, 21 November 2017 (UTC)
@Usernamekiran: {{subst only}} is on the doc subpage. — JJMC89 04:04, 22 November 2017 (UTC)

Redirect of Chios Mastiha Liqueur

Good morning, there is a great deal of confusion as a result of a redirect of Chios Mastiha Liquer page to Chios Mastiha. Chios Mastiha is a resin from a plant which has many applications while Chios Mastiha Liqueur is a liqueur made from the resin. Right now it appears that Chios Mastiha is a liqueur which is very confusing. I see that you have made the redirect would you kindly advise how this can be corrected. Apologies as I am not familiar with Wikipedia processes. Thank you (talk) 10:06, 23 November 2017 (UTC)

I reverted an undiscussed move. You should start a discussion about the title. — JJMC89 20:37, 25 November 2017 (UTC)

Prime Minister of Artsakh

Hi We should move the article to Prime Minister of Nagorno-Karabakh Republic because the office has been abolished when the constitutional changes came into force. --Panam2014 (talk) 18:58, 25 November 2017 (UTC)

@Panam2014: I suggest starting a discussion about the title. I don't have any knowledge of the subject; I only reverted a set of disruptive moves. — JJMC89 20:39, 25 November 2017 (UTC)
