Paweł KowalewskiEdit

Hello, I added media to Paweł Kowalewski profile after OTRS [Ticket#2020032510003381] Link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pawe%C5%82_Kowalewski. Could you be so kind and accept the changes? Thank you for your help! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ojdobrzejuz (talkcontribs) 14:31, 25 March 2020 (UTC)

It's not necessary for them to be accepted, on this biography they are published immediately. All the best: Rich Farmbrough (the apparently calm and reasonable) 15:16, 25 March 2020 (UTC).

Re: Help in moving a pageEdit

Good day User:Rich Farmbrough!

I dropped your talk page to seek your help in moving a page back to it's proper name. I have to admit I flubbed moving it back because it was moved by another editor without discussing the matter in the page's talk page. I flubbed moving the page back to it's original name, then we discussed what should be the name of the page based on the actual movie title, and I decided to acquiese to his suggestion - from the name Magnum Muslim .357, the actual name of the film is Muslim .357. But I couldn't move it back sadly, because it appears you can't move a page back to its original name if you don't have a page mover priveledge. As it stands, the page bears the very embarassing name Manum Muslim .357, we just need to take the pretty bad "Manum" spelling so that it can revert to its proper name "Muslim .357".

Hey, even if you haven't moved the page back just yet, I'd like to thank you in advance. You've helped me before when I flubbed the citations on Ang Probinsyano and its related pages, that's why I know I can count on you.

Warmest regards.

Gardo Versace (talk) 07:49, 31 January 2020 (UTC)

You can generally move it back, if the redirect hasn't been edited. However this redirect points somewhere else. And the intermediate redirect has two edits for some reason so it can't be "un-wound".
Magnum Muslim .357 2014
City Hunter: .357 Magnum 1989
.357 Magnum 1977
Muslim .357 1987
These are the films I am aware of, let me just review them.
All the best: Rich Farmbrough (the apparently calm and reasonable) 08:59, 31 January 2020 (UTC).
I have requested this at Wikipedia:Requested moves/Technical requests#Uncontroversial technical requests. All the best: Rich Farmbrough (the apparently calm and reasonable) 09:37, 31 January 2020 (UTC).
@Rich Farmbrough: Hey, I just found out the good news! Thanks again Rich! You're a lifesave, always know that I can always count on you. Warmest regards Gardo Versace (talk) 11:06, 31 January 2020 (UTC)

Administrators' newsletter – February 2020Edit

News and updates for administrators from the past month (January 2020).

  Guideline and policy news

  • Following a request for comment, partial blocks are now enabled on the English Wikipedia. This functionality allows administrators to block users from editing specific pages or namespaces rather than the entire site. A draft policy is being workshopped at Wikipedia:Partial blocks.
  • The request for comment seeking the community's sentiment for a binding desysop procedure closed with wide-spread support for an alternative desysoping procedure based on community input. No proposed process received consensus.

  Technical news

  • Twinkle now supports partial blocking. There is a small checkbox that toggles the "partial" status for both blocks and templating. There is currently one template: {{uw-pblock}}.
  • When trying to move a page, if the target title already exists then a warning message is shown. The warning message will now include a link to the target title. [1]

  Arbitration

  • Following a recent arbitration case, the Arbitration Committee reminded administrators that checkuser and oversight blocks must not be reversed or modified without prior consultation with the checkuser or oversighter who placed the block, the respective functionary team, or the Arbitration Committee.

Ezra Bayda pageEdit

Hi! I see you have edited the page for White Plum Asanga. I have made a change for Ezra Bayda's page, who was affiliated with White Plum Asanga.

I did so previously but it was removed because there was no verifiable reference given. Would you be willing to check the citation to make sure it is the correct form?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ezra_Bayda

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ezra_Bayda#cite_ref-10

Thanks! Mizeditor (talk) 23:36, 9 February 2020 (UTC)

The change you made needs a reference from a verifiable "reliable source". If you were writing a book or a paper you could refer to "personal communication", but we don't allow this on Wikipedia for any claim. In particular we are extra careful about living or recently dead people. The relevant guidance pages are Verifiability, Reliable Sources and Biographies of Living People.
If the mailing that you refer to was public, then perhaps it could be used, but we would still need to be careful, as the findings of an enquiry are not the same as the findings of a court of law.
As a separate matter, the question of Joko Beck's revocation of dharma transmission may be relevant and sourceable.

Wikidata weekly summary #404Edit

Molly RaynorEdit

Maybe not one of your proudest articles: Molly Raynor. It doesn't make the point of notability, but maybe there's stuff that you were aware of at the time that didn't make it into the article. I note that despite the brevity, there is confusion regarding her birth year. I've had a look on the New Zealand birth, death and marriages database and I find a Ada Mary Raynor (parents William and Mary Elizabeth) born on 17 October 1903 (registration number 1903/7894). Is it worth putting some effort into that? Worth keeping (well, you created it, so you must think that it is)? I'm happy to help; this from March 1928 could make a start: "Miss Raynor began stage work professionally only last February". Schwede66 17:44, 24 February 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for your note, and contributions to the article. On the contrary I am most proud of those pages that give people an opportunity to contribute. There is absolutely no shortage of material on Molly Raynor in the contemporary record, clearly enough to pass GNG. We should have an article on the Cheer-Oh Girls, of that there is no doubt. All the best: Rich Farmbrough (the apparently calm and reasonable) 19:20, 24 February 2020 (UTC).

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

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

  • Following an RfC, the blocking policy was changed to state that sysops must not undo or alter CheckUser or Oversight blocks, rather than should not.

Speedy deletion nomination of Arahad (disambiguation)Edit

 

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

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

A tag has been placed on Arahad (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 an orphaned 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 a 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. Hog Farm (talk) 15:47, 4 March 2020 (UTC)

Unexplained removal of contentEdit

Hello, I am just curious as to why you removed a large portion of content from 2019–20_coronavirus_outbreak without any discussion. NoahTalk 22:46, 10 March 2020 (UTC)

I am sorry my overreaction on the removal on the article. I did not see that a new article was created and thus interpretted it as a pure removal of content. The section you started on the talk page (which was quite burried by everything else) hasn't really had enough discussion to determine whether or not a new article is needed. I do think the section left behind in the main article does need a bit of work since it became quite small with the split. NoahTalk 22:54, 10 March 2020 (UTC)
