Centripetal forces[edit]

Hi DVdm. You are of course right. While reading "centripetal force" I thought "centrifugal force", because it was the page I meant to visit. Sorry about this basic and shameful mistake, and thanks for catching it! --Pamdeur (talk) 22:38, 25 January 2019 (UTC)

@Pamdeur: no problem Face-smile.svg. Cheers! - DVdm (talk) 09:47, 26 January 2019 (UTC)

About Orbits and trajectory[edit]

Have nothing to add. Just wanted to make a reference to a trajectory on a planet being a simplification of a planetary orbit. If you throw a stone it is in a perfect orbit until the two objects make physical contact. Claiming it is a parabola without mentioning it is due to simplification makes people think earth is flat and forget being on the outside of a sphere and the stone thrown is traveling in space.

NPR Newsletter No.17[edit]

Hello DVdm,

Discussions of interest
  • Two elements of CSD G6 have been split into their own criteria: R4 for redirects in the "File:" namespace with the same name as a file or redirect at Wikimedia Commons (Discussion), and G14 for disambiguation pages which disambiguate zero pages, or have "(disambiguation)" in the title but disambiguate a single page (Discussion).
  • {{db-blankdraft}} was merged into G13 (Discussion)
  • A discussion recently closed with no consensus on whether to create a subject-specific notability guideline for theatrical plays.
  • There is an ongoing discussion on a proposal to create subject-specific notability guidelines for chemicals and organism taxa.
  • NPR is not a binary keep / delete process. In many cases a redirect may be appropriate. The deletion policy and its associated guideline clearly emphasise that not all unsuitable articles must be deleted. Redirects are not contentious. See a classic example of the templates to use. More templates are listed at the R template index. Reviewers who are not aware, do please take this into consideration before PROD, CSD, and especially AfD because not even all admins are aware of such policies, and many NAC do not have a full knowledge of them.
NPP Tools Report
  • Superlinks – allows you to check an article's history, logs, talk page, NPP flowchart (on unpatrolled pages) and more without navigating away from the article itself.
  • copyvio-check – automatically checks the copyvio percentage of new pages in the background and displays this info with a link to the report in the 'info' panel of the Page curation toolbar.
  • The NPP flowchart now has clickable hyperlinks.

Christian Lorenz page[edit]

There is a user that post at the ip that keeps on deleting sourced material on that page. He has for four times deleted material that had previous been sourced. Can you help out? Barrydjgummy (talk) 23:10, 1 April 2019 (UTC)

@Barrydjgummy: it looks like the problem is solved now: [1] and [2]. Cheers - DVdm (talk) 19:47, 3 April 2019 (UTC)

Einstein's Earlier Publications and Connection to the Research Community[edit]

It's already on the Wikipedia. You removed the item, you can put it back and cross-link to this article, if you feel that's appropriate. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2605:A000:1401:86C9:222:69FF:FE4C:408B (talk) 02:01, 7 April 2019 (UTC)


Your article about gravity is slowly getting more even handed but still lags real time. It is a fact that the Standard Model does not recognize time dilation and its consequences in form of spacetime, spacetime gravity, special relativity and general relativity. It is also a fact that the Standard Model tolerates Newton's mathematical treatment of gravity without announcing it as part of the standard model. Since You profess to possess the required wisdom about this subject, why don't you update the article to closer reflect what is known and recognized about gravity today. Bengt Nyman (talk) 11:48, 28 April 2019 (UTC)

That was your final warning. If you try something like this again, you'll be blocked.- DVdm (talk) 12:04, 28 April 2019 (UTC)

Showing authority[edit]

A good and honest user does not show his authority over other users. You may be blocked permanently by me or by others in the future for doing so. Somebody356 (talk) 16:10, 30 April 2019 (UTC)

Avengers Endgame[edit]

I have a question about the Endgame We should not spoil the Endgame It should be a suspense It right Then give me your answer sincerely what's your opinion Rdjmcu (talk) 15:40, 6 May 2019 (UTC)

@Rdjmcu: our opinons are of no importance. Wikipedia's content guideline about spoilers is here: wp:SPOIL: "Spoilers are no different from any other content and should not be deleted solely because they are spoilers." - DVdm (talk) 15:43, 6 May 2019 (UTC)
Ok I apologise for what I have done Rdjmcu (talk) 15:50, 6 May 2019 (UTC)
No problem! Happy editing Face-smile.svg. - DVdm (talk) 15:53, 6 May 2019 (UTC)

It doesn't do anything. Specific evidence is available on IMDb already. If you don't believe, try opening it again. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2001:ee0:4081:7902:59c5:61d6:43e7:af62 (talkcontribs) 09:01, 10 May 2019 (UTC)

IMDB is not a wp:reliable source: anyone can put anything in there. - DVdm (talk) 09:26, 10 May 2019 (UTC)

As you could have read if you had looked at the pointers in the messages that I sent you: "Content from websites whose content is largely user-generated is also generally unacceptable." List with examples at Wikipedia:Reliable sources#User-generated content. - DVdm (talk) 11:42, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

about your revert[edit]

what are you doing reverting my changes on i explained that the material i removed is Contentious material false or libelous information defamatory material maybe you made a mistake. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Acurate1 (talkcontribs) 15:56, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

@Acurate1: Please sign all your talk page messages with four tildes (~~~~) — See Help:Using talk pages. Thanks.
The content is properly sourced and seems relevant to other contributors. You must go to the article talk page and discuss with them. Otherwise you will get blocked. Do not forget to sign your talk page messages with four tildes (~~~~). - DVdm (talk) 15:01, 13 May 2019 (UTC)
sourced or not its against the rules you don't see that kind of personal or legal information publicly posted. 15:21, 13 May 2019 (UTC)Acurate1 (talk)
Others seem to disagree with you. That's what article talk pages are for. - DVdm (talk) 15:31, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

15:47, 13 May 2019 (UTC) ho disagrees with me you? cause the moment i publish the change you revert it back no one has the chance to disagree and how about the rules? content must not be Contentious material false or libelous information defamatory material how about human rights? and 15:47, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

Please sign all your talk page messages with four tildes (~~~~) — See Help:Using talk pages.
The idea is that you talk about it on the article talk page to find out who disagrees. See the rules about wp:edit warring and wp:CONSENSUS. Calling content that you happen to dislike "contentious, false, libelous or defamatory" in an edit summary, or here on my talk page is not sufficient. You can and must make your case on the article talk page. - DVdm (talk) 16:07, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

Acurate1 (talk) 16:36, 13 May 2019 (UTC) i don't see any mention on the human rights implication i cited. i do not dislike the content you are drawing conclusions out here i just think in my opinion and my basic common sense the content i removed is defamatory. please answer if you think the content must be remove in the basis of european human rights mentioned here and here Acurate1 (talk) 16:36, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

I have no personal opinion about the content. You have put a message on Talk:Ilias Kasidiaris. Excellent. Now you'll have to wait for the other contributors to respond and see what happens. If nobody replies within, let's say, two days, you can remove the content, but do make sure that you mention the article talk page in your edit summary. Example: "Removed defamatory content, see talk page." Good luck. - DVdm (talk) 17:08, 13 May 2019 (UTC)
Meanwhile, someone has replied, so you can start a discussion to find wp:CONSENSUS now. - DVdm (talk) 17:12, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

NPR Newsletter No.18[edit]

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Hello DVdm,

WMF at work on NPP Improvements

Niharika Kohli, a product manager for the growth team, announced that work is underway in implementing improvements to New Page Patrol as part of the 2019 Community Wishlist and suggests all who are interested watch the project page on meta. Two requested improvements have already been completed. These are:

  • Allow filtering by no citations in page curation
  • Not having CSD and PRODs automatically marked as reviewed, reflecting current consensus among reviewers and current Twinkle functionality.
Reliable Sources for NPP

Rosguill has been compiling a list of reliable sources across countries and industries that can be used by new page patrollers to help judge whether an article topic is notable or not. At this point further discussion is needed about if and how this list should be used. Please consider joining the discussion about how this potentially valuable resource should be developed and used.

Backlog drive coming soon

Look for information on the an upcoming backlog drive in our next newsletter. If you'd like to help plan this drive, join in the discussion on the New Page Patrol talk page.

When you reverted this edit, you said it was a removal of unsourced content. That content had an inappropriate tone, yes, and I'd be willing to grant that there was excessive synthesis, but it certainly wasn't unsourced. Please be more careful in your edit summaries. DS (talk) 21:06, 17 May 2019 (UTC)

@DragonflySixtyseven:: Hi Dragon. Have a look at the statement in that edit: "One has to wonder if they've seen all of the aforementioned evidence", and then check the cited source [3]. The statement is nowhere near in that source, so the statement was effectively unsourced. - DVdm (talk) 22:38, 17 May 2019 (UTC)
"Statements not in cited source" will do. DS (talk) 23:36, 17 May 2019 (UTC)
Sure, that would have done. I'd be willing to grant that Face-smile.svg. - DVdm (talk) 08:01, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of User talk:Certificatessuccess[edit]

A tag has been placed on your user page,(struck—see below) User talk:Certificatessuccess, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page appears to be advertising which only promotes or publicises someone or something. Promotional editing of any kind is not permitted, whether it be promotion of a person, company, product, group, service, belief, or anything else. This is a violation of our policies regarding acceptable use of user pages — user pages are intended for active editors of Wikipedia to communicate with one another as part of the process of creating encyclopedic content, and should not be mistaken for free webhosting resources or advertising space. Please read the guidelines on spam, the guidelines on user pages, and, especially, our FAQ for Organizations.

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.

@Girth Summit: let it begone asap Face-smile.svg. - DVdm (talk) 12:02, 24 May 2019 (UTC)
Our wish came true :) GirthSummit (blether) 12:28, 24 May 2019 (UTC)
Indeed. For the record, that was not my userpage as the above template seems to suggest. It was someone's user talk page, that I had created in order to warn them about their inappropriate promotional edits. Cheers. - DVdm (talk) 12:44, 24 May 2019 (UTC)
