Happy New Year..![edit]

Janhvi Kapoor[edit]

Hi admin, will you please look into these page as the actor is failing WP:NACTORS and still the redirect was changed into article without any discussion on talk page or any where. There are many other actor articles which currently do not have articles just because they have only one released films like Ananya Pandey. But extended confirm users created Janhvi's article without any discussion and keep posting huge puffery there as page is extended confirm protected and nobody is seeing them. I mean is not this thing is wrong considering Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Janhvi Kapoor. Will you please look into these matter or just unprotect this page so i will changed this article to redirect again? Because the protection is no more needed if the article is created.

Pakistanpedia, is that you? You're not welcome to edit here so long as your block is active. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 17:59, 29 September 2019 (UTC)
What? Blocks mean something? Bah! Now follow the rules that I want you to while I ignore the ones I don't like! (And ignore that she won a reasonably notable award ...) Ravensfire (talk) 15:37, 9 October 2019 (UTC)
@Ravensfire: I actually have reservations about this article. For a couple of years, people have tried to legitimise this article subject. A debut award is somewhat meaningless, IMO, since it is pretty much like a public relations debutante ball. The rest of her upcoming credits are vapour until they manifest. That said, I think it's an uphill battle, as any stern objection would be overruled as soon as those WP:CRYSTAL films come out. I dislike the Pakistanpedia socking, but I think this one marketing push will ultimately win. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 04:35, 10 October 2019 (UTC)
Cyphoidbomb, sadly, I agree with you. Once those two 2020 films are released, there's no question about NACTOR being met. I think some of the writing can be tweaked some to get it a bit less promotional in tone. Ravensfire (talk) 16:26, 10 October 2019 (UTC)

need administrator eyes on something.[edit]

I got a notification about two articles: Manoj K. Varghese and India Elements. When I checked them, they looked like regular paid articles. I thought about CSDing them but then I noticed that there was references from very good sources like The Hindu and Deccan Herald. After I checked them, it turns out they are all bogus references meant to trick a potential CSD. They do not mention the subject of the article at all. This is the work of an experienced paid editing ring and more advanced than I've ever seen. I thought about notifying WP:COI but that doesn't seem like the right venue for it. So I'm requesting you to please look or notify someone who can look at it. Thank you. Regards, TryKid (talk) 14:18, 9 October 2019 (UTC)

Also see Fayiz Muhammed which was created by one of the editors of the two pages above. There's zero doubt in my mind it's paid editing - the article subject called the page out on his Facebook page and the subject isn't in the normal range of articles for Srijit777. I left a pretty stern notice on their talk page about WP:PAID. I don't think any of these are speedy candidates, but they may not survive a full AFD. Ravensfire (talk) 15:34, 9 October 2019 (UTC)
@TryKid: I appreciate your eagle-eye! Some of those articles look like they were pasted after being written in whatever sweatshop they were crafted in. I agree with Ravensfire. Doing a little WP:BEFORE due diligence, Manoj K. Varghese would probably get smoked in an AFD. And sadly, that article creator hasn't edited in ages, so sanctions are probably not going to be useful for them. I want to correct one piece of info--most of the references at the Varghese are legitimate except for the first. However, they're all passing mentions that don't do anything to assert his notability. I would support an AFD for that article. That said, the A7 potentially could be argued here. That criterion is a little tricky for casual editors, because it has a two part Credible claim of significance. Basically: 1) Is it plausible that the subject is a theatre director? Uh, sure. 2) If it is true, would that plausibly imply that the subject is notable? Meh. I don't think a theatre director is likely to be notable. There are probably a gazillion small-town theatres. A film director in a major market working for established studios? That might make the A7 cut even if they might not ultimately be notable. I'm also having doubts about India Elements, who might not pass WP:NCORP, but might not also pass A7, since I don't think a management company would typically confer notability. There are tons of management companies out in the world doing things. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 04:28, 10 October 2019 (UTC)
Cyphoidbomb, I did a super quick pass on both articles and pulled out some of the drek. I think the Varghese is PROD able after removing some of the unsourced and promotional junk plus the massive section on events that doesn't belong there. The India Elements is probably better for AFD. Ravensfire (talk) 16:35, 10 October 2019 (UTC)

User:Rvls[edit]

Sir, it seems Jabbulakonda is Rvls. Reverting back Marana Simhasanam, Aditya 369, Malayalam cinema, Kannada cinema, Telugu cinema and Athadu to versions by Rvls. I think the user is attempting to disguise as a newcomer with amateurish edit summaries. 2409:4073:11A:5247:2950:C96D:21E8:6769 (talk) 06:42, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
