About the "only warning" about spammingEdit

I noticed that after you reverted spam by User:AANURA, you left a message on their talk page. Is it from one of the templates? I've never seen it before. It goes much more straight to the point of "stop spamming the Wiki" than what I have found in Wikipedia:Template messages/User talk namespace. Is this tone only administrators are allowed to use? BernardoSulzbach (talk) 13:59, 28 December 2019 (UTC)

Hi, anyone can use the {{subst:uw-spam4im}} template for severe spam (where appropriate). It’s part of the Twinkle warnings and I see it listed in Wikipedia:Template messages/User talk namespace as well. All the best, N.J.A. | talk 14:10, 28 December 2019 (UTC)

Regret for using Bot name in usernameEdit

@NJA:, I'm extremely sorry that I did a mistake in creating a account using the Bot word which is generally been reserved for the technical purposes, but I didn't have any intention to violate the Wikipedia policies nor in the future I would ever do so. I admit I'm new user in Wikipedia, but I'm a good reader and from onwards I will adhere to all the policy and procedures while using Wikipedia. But I also like to apologise and would request you to tag me with all the important and relevant page regarding the polices so that in future by mistake also I don't any mistake. And thank you for believing in me and considering my request. I'm really happy that you gave time in considering by Unblock request in the winter vacation and also sad that I created a bad rapport with you all that I didn't explain and put my point on my talk page first rather than request the name change. Thanks IMBTech (talk) 15:01, 28 December 2019 (UTC)

It’s all fine, no problem. Happy editing, N.J.A. | talk 13:25, 29 December 2019 (UTC)

User:Ghar JunctionEdit

Hi NJA, you recently blocked User:Ghar Junction for spamming. They are repeatedly putting the same spam content on their talk page. Would you consider extending the block to remove talk page access? Many thanks, The Mirror Cracked (talk) 15:22, 5 January 2020 (UTC)

Done, N.J.A. | talk 15:24, 5 January 2020 (UTC)


Hey, thanks for the block but it appears this editor is not here to engage with editors and has failed to respond to COI/UPE inquiries. I suspect the creator of the articles about her business is also paid (but that's another matter for COIN), anyway, my question is whether this can be extended to indefinite until they satisfactorily answer the question about their COI/paid editing. Praxidicae (talk) 11:16, 7 January 2020 (UTC)

@Praxidicae: I was drafting a note on editing restrictions when you posted here. I wasn’t happy indefinitely blocking right now, but this may be the result if there’s no dialogue. This is their chance. Feel free to report any violation of the restriction to me or another admin, N.J.A. | talk 11:23, 7 January 2020 (UTC)

Recent username reportsEdit

Hi NJA, please could you explain why you considered the reports about User:Firmincigars and User:Uptownlogodesign not a blatant violation of the username's policy? At WP:U I read textually: "Usernames are not allowed on Wikipedia if they: [...] only contain the names of companies, organizations, websites, musical groups or bands, teams, social media or streaming channels, or creative groups". It seems that this precisely meets those situations, isn't it? Is there a different understanding of this policy? Thanks in advance, --DoebLoggs (talk) 10:22, 16 January 2020 (UTC)

@DoebLoggs: Hi, although you cite the policy correctly, the intent, when blocking for username violations, is to prevent shared use/role accounts and blatant spamming for or on behalf of someone paying you (WP:PAID). Although both these accounts are potentially editing in a way that’s a conflict, none of the edits indicate someone working at the company created the account for corporate (shared/role) purposes as opposed to an individual who may or may not work for the company. Further, none of the edits are blatant spam, e.g. editing articles to market the products of any particular brand nor have they linked to inappropriate external sources. There could be a warning given not only about username policy, but also COI and PAID, but I disagree they’re blatant violations that require an immediate block. If you’re not in agreement you may take these to WP:RFCN for community consensus on this, N.J.A. | talk 10:45, 16 January 2020 (UTC)
Hi again NJA, no, I'm not in disagreement, I was just trying to understand the rationale behind your choice, just to improve my skills and avoid make unuseful reportings and wasting admins' time in the future. Thanks for your answer. Cheers, --DoebLoggs (talk) 10:54, 16 January 2020 (UTC)

About Dog insurance: get your dog a health insurance articleEdit

Hi there. I have created my first article "Dog insurance: get your dog a health insurance article". i noticed that has deleted. I added one external link for that article and that maybe the reason to delete it. So i just want to know is that okay to remake same article and without adding any links to that. Thank you.

Legal threatEdit

Hey NJA hope all is well. I saw that you blocked Brianlye (talk • contribs • deleted contribs • nuke contribs • logs • filter log • block user • block log) for vandalism. It looks like they added a legal threat and generally just abusing their talk page privileges. -- LuK3 (Talk) 13:35, 19 January 2020 (UTC)

Nicken CuggetEdit

Hi NJA! It's good to talk to you once again! I'm messaging you to ask about the issue with this account's username? It just looks like the user took the word "Chicken Nugget", switched the 'C' and the 'N', and removed the letter 'h'... It doesn't look to me like a username that warrants an account block. Is there something that I'm not seeing? Let me know. :-) Thanks - ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 16:43, 21 January 2020 (UTC)

On face value it's absolutely fine, and perhaps I'm too jaded from the approximately one "Chicken Nugget" themed username created daily, which is ultimately blocked for behaviour, LTA and/or socking reasons. As such I associate the name with demonstrating an intent on being disruptive. Saying this, if they ask for a review I would allow the unblock and if they even mildly seem sincere in intent I'd apologize for the block, N.J.A. | talk 16:50, 21 January 2020 (UTC)
Fair enough. Thanks for responding with your thoughts and the reason behind the block. :-) Cheers - ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 16:53, 21 January 2020 (UTC)
Not that there's a connection, but this recent revert is an example of the pattern I see with that username implying a disruptive intent, N.J.A. | talk 16:56, 21 January 2020 (UTC)

Request for rollbacks permissionEdit

I have 900 edits, about 400 of which were made in the mainspace. I have had the pending changes reviewer permission for over a year. I often search for vandalism so I would like to have this tool. Thank you for your consideration! —FORMALDUDE(talk) 02:10, 23 January 2020 (UTC) (I'm contacting you because you're listed on administrators willing to grant rollback requests)

Hi @FormalDude: you look good to go. I’ll add the permission to your account, and although I trust you’ve done so do already, do re-familiarize yourself with the intended use of the rollback tool. Also, good job at skipping the queue and coming here for the permission assignment ;), N.J.A. | talk 11:01, 23 January 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for the quick response NJA! I knew it'd be a good idea to come to you. —FORMALDUDE(talk) 03:41, 24 January 2020 (UTC)

Lou Ann BartonEdit

I'm not sure what type of citation you want for the information I left. Rockola was originally a five piece group consisting of Lou Ann Barton on vocals. Paul Christiansen on guitar (he was also Lou Ann's boyfriend at the time). David Skinner as lead guitarist and vocals. Dennis Berganni on bass. Randy "Turtle" DeHart on drums. The band moved to Ft. Worth in 1973 and replaced Berganni with Mike "Cadillac" Johnson. They also added Richard Kline on B3. There are some Rockola recordings that have made their way into the light via Roy Ames Home Cooking label after Roy got out of federal prison. David Skinner was a 2005 inductee into the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame in the Blues category as a singer and guitarist. The story of his induction mentions his time with Rockola and Lou Ann. Additionally, Cadillac's website for Michael "Cadillac" Johnson and the Revelators talks about joining Lou Ann's band in 1973. FYI, the reason I know this information to be accurate is because I WAS THERE. — Preceding unsigned comment added by The 1 Big A (talkcontribs) 17:38, 23 January 2020 (UTC)

@The 1 Big A: Per the notice left on your page you need to support your changes with a reliable source. As noted in the guidance at that link a reliable source means third-party (i.e. not you, yourself), published sources with a reputation for fact-checking and accuracy. Please review the Five Pillars to understand what is expected when editing, N.J.A. | talk 17:46, 23 January 2020 (UTC)


Please also revdel his spam. Thanks for blocking. ―Justin (koavf)TCM 12:36, 30 January 2020 (UTC)

@Koavf: Hi Justin, thanks for the message. Why would these need revdel'ed? It's disruptive, but I cannot see how it meets the requirements even for criteria 3, N.J.A. | talk 15:04, 30 January 2020 (UTC)
NJA, On projects where I have those user rights, I revdel spam on the off chance that someone clicks on those links. I'm definitely not clicking on whatsapp2020freemoney[dot]biz or whatever but I can only assume that his spam is malicious and quite possibly harmful to someone's computer. ―Justin (koavf)TCM 17:11, 30 January 2020 (UTC)
I did check the link and it currently goes to an article on "chhatrapati-shivaji-maharaj". I'm not comfy deleting under any criteria. The closest is 3, but even it says the criteria isn't for "mere spam links." Saying that, maybe I'm being overly restrictive on this and I am not opposed to you seeking a further opinion via WP:REVDELREQUEST or wherever else is appropriate, N.J.A. | talk 18:15, 30 January 2020 (UTC)

Insurance company SPAEdit

Hi. Today, Pat Bendure was created and immediately edited the home location and article of the same company that SS Bendure Hartwig was blocked for promoting a couple days ago. —[AlanM1(talk)]— 21:57, 10 February 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for the note. Although they could be editing in a COI, I’m not sure they are causing too much disruption. I will welcome them with outlines on COI and remind them to cite and use edit summaries, N.J.A. | talk 10:44, 11 February 2020 (UTC)


So question, I reported an account yesterday for User:Subwayeetfresh which is basically Subway "Eat Fresh", the company name and slogan, not exactly sure how that wasn't actionable? Looks like you're active this morning so I posted here but this made no sense to me [[1]]. Hell in a Bucket (talk) 16:43, 1 March 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for the post. Can you clarify which part(s) of the username policy you believe that account name violates? I see one rationale for a soft block under username policy, but you mention "company name and slogan" so I’d like to understand your thinking. Notwithstanding the foregoing, I am blocking as a vandalism only account, but not solely for any username issue, N.J.A. | talk 18:53, 1 March 2020 (UTC)
I hesitated on the vandalism only part just because they hadn't made more then that initial edit. The reasons I reported were as stated when filed it was a promotional and misleading name. I've seen some social media sites have members that have spoofed a company to make it look like it was them and reply to customers or the like. I doubt many people if any would have fell for it but there again it has happened. Was I off base? Hell in a Bucket (talk) 19:25, 1 March 2020 (UTC)
@Hell in a Bucket: Unfortunately I do no share your view that the name was caught by the provisions of WP:ORGNAME. There’s no indication the user is employed by Subway (or anyone) to edit promotionally and/or was using the name as a shared account. The username policy issue I was referring to is the “yeet” part of the name, which, if you need to google it, you will find it to be disruptive and likely offensive. That, coupled with their edit summary gave good cause to block as VOA and/or NOTHERE. Had they not edited at all I may have soft blocked the name for the reasons mentioned, but not for promotional or shared reasons, N.J.A. | talk 22:54, 1 March 2020 (UTC)
Also, I do not recall declining your report for this name, but this is a good decision nonetheless, N.J.A. | talk 22:58, 1 March 2020 (UTC)
No one really declined it, there was a massed deletion on several reports all at once but it was never noted showing hey this or that and why it was summarily removed. You just happened to be an administrator that had been recently active on that page so I asked you because you appeared to be active at the time of posting. It wasn't that you denied or didn't, it's often been my experience that what one administrator finds ok another may not and thus with no rationale of what was the issue it simply became expedient to ask someone that was active. Out of that username you only saw yeet (What I googles it simply meant excited so I don't get the inherent disruption)? I didn't even consider that because of how it was packaged with the name and how many times people have tried to spoof a company and then make a meme or the like after posting some stupid response to someone. I do get your point about ORG and promotional though that may have been off base. Amazing how two people can come to similar assessments for such different reasons. Anyways, appreciated the response thanks! Hell in a Bucket (talk) 00:17, 2 March 2020 (UTC)

Please reprotect (not ECP)...Edit

Per Wikipedia:Protection_policy#Template_protection and Wikipedia:High-risk_templates, WP:ECP is not the recommended protection for templates (for a number of reasons listed). Please adjust protection for Template:Confirmed cases in 2019–20 coronavirus outbreak accordingly. Buffs (talk) 17:14, 3 March 2020 (UTC)

Hi and thanks for the message. I’m familiar with protection policy and re-read it just in case, and I’m not sure what your concern is or where you see an outright prohibition from using ECP? The rationale for protection is this case is mostly vandalism from IPs. Had I intended “Full” protection I would have chose “template protection” instead, as it is a template, and per policy. Anyhow let me know the exact issue and I’ll review, I’ve amended the protection, though I'd like to know the rationale for your concern, N.J.A. | talk 11:30, 4 March 2020 (UTC)
My concern is basically that ECP for templates has been rejected in the past. IMHO, it's a pretty inconsequential difference, but it's what we've generally agreed to as a community and we should abide by that consensus. Have a good day! Buffs (talk) 23:03, 4 March 2020 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for the post. I’ve checked and there is no recent disruption warranting a block in my opinion, but if it picks up do report at WP:ANI, N.J.A. | talk 19:37, 5 March 2020 (UTC)

Redirected/protected articleEdit

An article with 50 refs, which seems to meet GNG from what I can tell, was redirected by one editor who asserted it was not notable, and then protected by you. That seems an odd, unhelpful result. How do we have public discussion on the subject? The effect of the editing by the two of you is the same as if the article were deleted. Without going through the AfD process. Thank you. --2604:2000:E010:1100:80EE:174D:AD0C:54A4 (talk) 23:08, 8 March 2020 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for the post. Although I see some logic in your post, I do not agree it is the actual result (nor was it intended, directly or indirectly). The public discussion around the subject of notability may be had on the article’s talk page, which is not protected. Protection can always be amended or removed following a consensus to do so, which is to be attempted on the talk page. All the best, N.J.A. | talk 01:55, 9 March 2020 (UTC)
I understand that is not the intended result. But to answer your point, any public discussion around the subject of notability should I think be at an AfD. Because there we can attract the editors that comment on the issue of notability of an article. They watch the AfD lists. They do not watch this talk page. Maybe the best thing for you to do would as an administrative matter nominate it for AfD? That would allow the usual editors to comment. Otherwise, as you have seen, that talk page may attract editors who are more interested in the article subject than in the notability issue.2604:2000:E010:1100:9CBD:54D6:D394:BC94 (talk) 03:29, 9 March 2020 (UTC)
Although AfD may attract a more skilled audience, it is not meant to supplant discussion of notability issues on the talk page. You seem to be saying if the page were not protected you would nominate for AfD, but you had not done so previously. I thought about your suggestion and I am unsure an AfD is appropriate here as the person was formerly in a fairly high level role in government that arguably involved something noteworthy, and he has been and remains active in California politics. It’s a fair chance consensus will be that the subject meets minimal requirements and that there's scope to improve as opposed to delete the article. For these reasons, and per the prerequisites suggested prior to an AfD nomination, I am not comfortable nominating for deletion. I understand the annoyance, but protection was not put in place to protect the current version with redirect, it was done to prevent further disruption by various editors. Protection does have indirect effects, but discussion and consensus means an agreed change can be made further to a protected edit request. I may be inclined to reduce the period of protection (currently until March 15), but you should continue discussion on the talk page, wait for the current protection to elapse and consider whether to nominate, and/or you may seek a review of the protection by listing the page, with concise reasons why protection is inappropriate under the protection policy at WP:RFUP, N.J.A. | talk 11:19, 9 March 2020 (UTC)
Note I’ve reconsidered the factors around protection and have for now decided to remove it. The rationale is on the article talk page and the matter should be discussed there, N.J.A. | talk 14:09, 9 March 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for remaining open to reconsideration and being so thoughtful.2604:2000:E010:1100:BD20:C991:D0E6:EB0D (talk) 19:43, 17 March 2020 (UTC)

Reinstatement of deleted pageEdit

I just added an entry for XML Copy Editor in the table of XML editors at Comparison of XML editors. When I went to create a page to satisfy the redline, I found the following note

I do not see you being reported for edit warring, though you both warned each other about it. If you stop and stick to the article’s talk page and remain civil, you should be okay., N.J.A. | talk 12:34, 17 June 2020 (UTC)

User talk:Uttarakhand Science Education and Research Centre (USERC)Edit

You may wish to revoke TPA.--Cahk (talk) 09:06, 18 June 2020 (UTC)

They’re allowed to blank the page as the block log still says the reasoning. Thanks., N.J.A. | talk 10:00, 18 June 2020 (UTC)
I am referring to this edit post-block [3]--Cahk (talk) 19:03, 18 June 2020 (UTC)
I see, thanks. I’ll watch the page., N.J.A. | talk 19:12, 18 June 2020 (UTC)

User talk:MmovingfurnitureEdit

You may wish to revoke TPA.--Cahk (talk) 09:16, 18 June 2020 (UTC)

  Done: Unlike above, they were re-adding spam. Thanks., N.J.A. | talk 10:01, 18 June 2020 (UTC)

Users are vandalizing West Block Blues pageEdit

One user has moved West Block Blues to user space. And now that it has been moved to user space, I can't move it back to article space. Can you please move it back to article space and protect it. There's so much vandalism going on. Coderzombie (talk) 11:21, 21 June 2020 (UTC)

Another admin seems to have resolved this, hopefully. Thanks., N.J.A. | talk 11:25, 21 June 2020 (UTC)

New Pages Reviewer RequestEdit

Hello NJA, I am Megan, I am currently a pending changes reviewer and rollbacker. I have familiarized myself with almost all of Wikipedia’s policies and guidelines. I mostly hover around pending changes , recent changes and page curation to look for articles or edits against Wikipedia’s policies like WP:COPYVIO, WP:N. I really want to help over at NP to help with the over 9000 unreviewed articles. Regards Megan Barris (Lets talk📧) 23:49, 24 June 2020 (UTC)

Hi. I see you joined us not too long ago and you’ve been busy. Keep up the good work. In terms of your request, generally we want to see 90 days of edits, 500 undeleted edits to mainspace that clearly demonstrate knowledge of page quality control and the page moving process. Overall, far so good, but re-request around end of August, thanks, N.J.A. | talk 12:16, 25 June 2020 (UTC)
NJA, Okay, i will, Thanks Megan Barris (Lets talk📧) 14:43, 25 June 2020 (UTC)

Page ProtectionEdit

Mind protecting MasterChef Greece, it’s tiring Megan Barris (Lets talk📧) 13:18, 27 June 2020 (UTC)

  Done, thanks, N.J.A. | talk 13:20, 27 June 2020 (UTC)

Offensive usernameEdit

Hi, NJA. I agree with Sjö that Kurtminrøv is an offensive name. (I have some feeling for Danish, though it's not my mother tongue.) I've softblocked the user. Just thought I'd mention it, hope you don't mind. Bishonen | tålk 20:56, 27 June 2020 (UTC).

Thanks for the note. It helps when there’s more than one opinion on a foreign term not widely used in English — unless it is and I’ve never come across it? Anyhow, all good here, N.J.A. | talk 10:29, 28 June 2020 (UTC)


user:2001:b011:800c:3409:e4bf:b61f:dcf4:2db2 is abusing her talkpage. CLCStudent (talk) 13:20, 11 July 2020 (UTC)

No molecular biology in 1674Edit

You reverted an edit I made about Anisomycin. The study by Butler was not published in the 17th century and it should be blatantly obvious that the year was actually 1974, not 1674. People didn't even know antibiotics existed until (if you're generous) the end of the 19th century.

Hope we can fix this error soon. — Preceding unsigned comment added by WhatsAWorkingUsername (talkcontribs) 15:54, 11 July 2020 (UTC)

You’re right, apologies. I’ll revert N.J.A. | talk 17:04, 11 July 2020 (UTC)

Ufukcan EnginEdit

Ufukcan seems to be a Turkish name (talk) 15:47, 15 July 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for the message. I will definitely bear that in mind if the editor appeals. N.J.A. | talk 19:40, 15 July 2020 (UTC)

Henry CejudoEdit

Hi NJA. Last month you protected Henry Cejudo due to persistent vandalism. Within hours of the protection expiring, the vandalism started again. Three anonymous users so far, all vandal edits. Doesn't look like it's going to stop. Do you think further protection would be a good idea? Thanks. JimKaatFan (talk) 16:11, 22 July 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for the update. I’ve protected for 3 months, N.J.A. | talk 09:41, 23 July 2020 (UTC)

Username is not changed!Edit

Username is not changed! (계정 이름이 안바뀝니다!)

my talk: User talk:DAEGUBUS (Bot)#July 2020

Check to Wikipedia:Changing username/Simple#DAEGUBUS (Bot) → DAEGUBUS~enwiki --DAEGUBUS (Bot) (talk) 12:22, 23 July 2020 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for the note. That process takes a little time, but as you have sought a change of name, you will not be blocked. Thank you for taking the time to resolve this, N.J.A. | talk 18:08, 23 July 2020 (UTC)

Incivility flare-upEdit

I was hoping that B103N48 was starting to get the point about civility after they were last reported at ANI, and we managed to engage in meaningful discourse, so no admin intervention was necessary there. But alas, this happened. Regards, Cyphoidbomb (talk) 18:06, 1 August 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for the note. Apologies for the delay. It appears admin action has been taken. N.J.A. | talk 11:56, 4 August 2020 (UTC)


Hi NJA. I came across this editor via WP:THQ#Sakura School Akademi. They might be connected to an account you blocked named JaidenLalo. Do you think this needs to be added to Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Kidhackr? -- Marchjuly (talk) 14:12, 29 August 2020 (UTC)

Thanks. Blocked as sock, N.J.A. | talk 10:44, 30 August 2020 (UTC)
Thank you for taking a look at this. -- Marchjuly (talk) 11:06, 30 August 2020 (UTC)

Possible sockEdit

This guy may be back again, see also a topic he likes to edit and one of several blocked socks that have edited the same page. Quack quack quack. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs) 02:41, 1 September 2020 (UTC)

Thanks. Blocked and page protected for a bit, which hopefully will do something! N.J.A. | talk 11:48, 1 September 2020 (UTC)

Textile factory back in businessEdit

Not sure how often you check this textile mill but it looks like someone sneaked in and fired up the sewing machine again. I also started a related discussion at Wikipedia talk:Sockpuppet investigations/Archives/Archive22#Flagging "favorite" usernames for attention? which you may want to participate in. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs) 19:16, 5 September 2020 (UTC)

user I love cloy that was previously blocked seems to be back with another accountEdit

Hi, i think user I love cloy that was previously blocked by you seems to be back with another account with name Komoonyoung. because this disruptive editing on Korean drama page is exactly the same as before, changing the rating so that this user favorite dramas is at the top of the list. It's really annoying how much this user is imposing on it's own. Thank you in advance. Michaelelijahtanuwijaya (talk) 00:40, 23 November 2020 (UTC)
