Edits to Michael Roth page[edit]

Hi Cordless Larry,

Could you explain why you undid my edits to Michael Roth's personal page? While my edits may be unpopular, your dislike of what I put on there is not in itself a reason to remove the edits nor is it cause to flag me for potential vandalism. Please at least let me know what about my edits was factually incorrect, given the new information about Roth that just came out in the news. — Preceding unsigned comment added by SilentButtLovely (talkcontribs) 00:32, 27 March 2019 (UTC)

As explained in the message I left on your talk page, the information you added was unsourced. Please see WP:VERIFY and WP:BLPSOURCES. Cordless Larry (talk) 09:00, 27 March 2019 (UTC)

Daniel Otto[edit]

Just wanted to give you a heads-up that I've recreated an article at the above title, given the recent AFD. Not about the same guy - it's about an early 19th-century American folk artist. So it should be fine, but I wanted to let you know regardless. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 04:00, 5 April 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know, Ser Amantio di Nicolao. Who knows, maybe this will dissuade attempts to recreate the deleted article! Cordless Larry (talk) 08:46, 5 April 2019 (UTC)

URGENT matter regarding Sami Yusuf Wiki Page[edit]


Dear Cordless,

It is patently false to call Mr Yusuf "British-Iranian" as he does not hold Iranian citizenship/dual nationality and, for the purpose of clarification he is ethnically Azeri (not Iranian). He only holds British Citizenship. Here is the link confirming this in a 2018 Q&A session with Mr Yusuf:

The following link has been sourced for this false claim surrounding his name:

As it is a language I do not understand I had to get it translated. It is now clear that this article is 100% false. It has apparently been around for 4 years and has only come to our attention now through Wikipedia. We have already started to contact the BBC to get this article removed and will take all necessary actions as this is defamatory.

I would like to make it absolutely clear that Mr Yusuf only has one name, that is ’Sami Yusuf’. I am astonished that Wikipedia would take a very dubious source so seriously. We can send you Mr Yusuf’s passport copy in case the following link is not sufficient:

I hope this precedes some random rumors - it would be quite tragic for Wikipedia’s credibility if it was otherwise. Logically, one would assume such claims would need to be backed with hard evidence (such as actual credible documents) and not just a tabloid-style article?

Mr Yusuf is obviously a very famous person and rumors are spread about him. He is probably one of the most scandal-free artists in the world but these inaccuracies regarding his background keep popping up on your platform. This is extremely frustrating for Mr Yusuf as well as for us (his Management) since Wikipedia has become a ‘first stop’ for media outlets and we constantly have to correct and inform them about the falsehoods written on your platform. Needless to say, when it comes to things such as citizenship/nationality and name there is a legal dimension which I hope we do not underestimate.

Just a year ago we emailed Google regarding Mr Yusuf’s nationality (which was visible on the Google Graph as “British-Iranian”). Having provided the necessary information as well as supporting documents Google rectified their mistake. I hope the same courtesy can be extended to us by Wikipedia so that this matter can be resolved once and for all!

In case you need any further clarifications, I would be happy to put you in touch with Mr Yusuf’s lawyer and I am at your disposal for any further help.

We would sincerely appreciate your prompt action.

Best regards,

Please raise these points on the article talk page or at Wikipedia:Biographies of living persons/Noticeboard, Mjahangir777. I protected the article from edit warring but don't have any particular expertise about the subject. Cordless Larry (talk) 07:31, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

It's there but no one responding.

I think you can unlock the page and we can remove some CERTAIN words only. then you can lock or protect it? One word is wrong there and need to remove. Is it something you can address?

Based on many sources and articles, he is only British and word Iranian should remove from beginning of the article.

You need to be patient, as we're all volunteers here. It would also help if you followed the instructions about reactivating your request when posting follow-up requests on the article talk page. Cordless Larry (talk) 17:27, 11 April 2019 (UTC)


Akik Haroon[edit]

hi you have deleted a musician biography that has taken me months to put toghter he isn't looking for promotion nor is he selling any services please check the article i have posted — Preceding unsigned comment added by Network118 (talkcontribs) 12:26, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

Hi i have created a artist biography which isn't using nambiguous advertising or promotion so why have you deleted it — Preceding unsigned comment added by Network118 (talkcontribs) 12:29, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

I didn't delete it, Network118, although I did nominate it. Please see Wikipedia:Your first article for guidance on what is acceptable article content, but you also need to read Wikipedia:Conflict of interest. I did some searching for sources about the musician concerned and he doesn't appear to meet Wikipedia's notability criteria in any case. Cordless Larry (talk) 12:31, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

Reverting copyvio addition - Please Guide![edit]

Hi there,

I am new on Wikipedia and I recently received your message on one of the pages I edited. The message said that the content I posted is copyrighted. I appreciate your input but I am confused because the content I posted was kind of a news, nothing copyrighted, neither I copied it off from the internet, I added as a new piece of information, in my own words.

"Your addition to JS Bank has been removed in whole or in part, as it appears to have added copyrighted material to Wikipedia without evidence of permission from the copyright holder. If you are the copyright holder, please read Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials for more information on uploading your material to Wikipedia. For legal reasons, Wikipedia cannot accept copyrighted material, including text or images from print publications or from other websites, without an appropriate and verifiable license. All such contributions will be deleted. You may use external websites or publications as a source of information, but not as a source of content, such as sentences or images—you must write using your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously and persistent violators of our copyright policy will be blocked from editing. See Wikipedia:Copying text from other sources for more information. Cordless Larry (talk) 15:41, 22 April 2019"

I will appreciate if you could guide me. I am looking forward to learn and grow my Wikipedia profile.

Note: I tried to respond directly to your comment/thread but I couldn't find a way to do it.

Hello, EvanBrown. The very first line of the content you added was "JS Bank Ltd on Tuesday signed a sale and purchase agreement with HSBC Bank Middle East Limited for the acquisition of HSBC-Pakistan operations", which is copied word-for-word from this news article from 2012. I also find it strange that you state that you wrote the material yourself when exactly the same addition was made by another user in December - or is the Syedfaraz12 account yours?
