Please assist me in creating a page akin to these similar pages[edit]

Can you explain how my draft for Same Same But Different Festival differs significantly and or substantially, other than its legacy (or lack thereof), from Stagecoach Festival (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stagecoach_Festival) or Lightning in a Bottle Festival (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lightning_in_a_Bottle)

Other than the robustness of available references which are admittedly few for this newer festival, it seems to me to be fundamentally similar enough to warrant fairer consideration.

Thank you for your time and effort. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2402:800:4170:a10a:b59a:491d:99c0:2e91 (talk) 05:14, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

Can you give me a link to the draft? I can't find it. --DannyS712 (talk) 05:58, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

Empty TPE requests[edit]

If there's an empty request, like at Template talk:AFC submission, it's OK to remove it. I usually leave an edit summary of "rm empty request". Some mark it nd, as you did, and some remove it. It seems to be one of the few situations where it's OK to remove someone's edits from a talk page. Hope that helps, Cabayi (talk) 06:47, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

@Cabayi: Thanks for letting me know. Hopefully @Suffusion of Yellow sets 987 (hist · log) to disallow or warn soon, that should reduce the number of empty requests. --DannyS712 (talk) 06:51, 19 May 2019 (UTC)
Nice. I do like fixes that prevent mistakes rather than forcing us to correct and unintentionally belittle novices and mistake-makers. I'm still unreasonably chuffed with how well this fix has worked. Cabayi (talk) 08:44, 19 May 2019 (UTC)
@Cabayi: Yeah, that's also what I prefer to explain that the edit request was unclear, rather than just remove it --DannyS712 (talk) 08:47, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

Draft:2019 Johan Cruyff Shield[edit]

Please review this article soon. Thanks. – Flix11 (talk) 09:55, 20 May 2019 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) Flix11, "The 2018 Johan Cruyff Shield will be...". Really? Cabayi (talk) 10:57, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
@Cabayi: Yes, my bad. Thank you for pointing out. – Flix11 (talk) 12:01, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
@Flix11: There is still very little prose in the draft, and its a subject I'm not very familiar with, so at this point I'm not comfortable accepting the draft. But, another reviewer should take a look at it --DannyS712 (talk) 15:59, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
@DannyS712: The previous edition is also that short, aside of the stats since the 2019 match is yet to be done. – Flix11 (talk) 17:09, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
@Flix11: Sorry, but I'd prefer to leave this to someone more familiar with the subject than me --DannyS712 (talk) 18:35, 20 May 2019 (UTC)

Template:Editnotices/Page/Rudeness[edit]

Hi DannyS712. My interest having been piqued by this VPT discussion, I decided to check out list of templates which transclude Template:Parenthetical referencing editnotice. The first one in the list is Template:Editnotices/Page/Rudeness. However, as far as I can tell, Rudeness does not use parenthetical referencing. On that basis, would it be appropriate for me to nominate Template:Editnotices/Page/Rudeness for deletion? Thanks. DH85868993 (talk) 06:22, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

The same templates are used for Harvard references and parenthetical references, because they are just different formats of the inline citation with the same principle of not using ref tags and defining the references separately --DannyS712 (talk) 06:24, 21 May 2019 (UTC)
Cool. Thanks for the explanation. DH85868993 (talk) 06:26, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

Your offer[edit]

to create those Template:Parenthetical referencing editnotice/editnotices for me is muchly appreciated especially because - duh on me! - I didn't realize I'm not a template editor. I don't really have a List right now but I might be pestering you from time to time to create these for articles I come across that are riddled with Harvard cite errors and warnings. Frankly, most of the articles that use Harvard cites are riddled with errors...if not for "importScript('User:Ucucha/HarvErrors.js');" on my common.js page I guess I wouldn't be able to fix them because I'd never even see them. Shearonink (talk) 19:07, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

@Shearonink: no problem. Just let me know --DannyS712 (talk) 19:12, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Angry Birds on The Run[edit]

Hello DannyS712. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Angry Birds on The Run, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: notable creator, notable franchise, consider merging per WP:ATD-M. Thank you. SoWhy 06:00, 22 May 2019 (UTC)

@SoWhy: Given the lack of sourced, would you be okay with a redirect until there is coverage? --DannyS712 (talk) 06:01, 22 May 2019 (UTC)
Both are fine, especially since Angry Birds already mentions the YouTube series. For future reference, if merging or redirecting is possible, just do so instead of tagging for deletion (since WP:ATD is a policy that also applies to speedy deletion). Regards SoWhy 06:04, 22 May 2019 (UTC)
@SoWhy: Okay, will note. --DannyS712 (talk) 06:39, 22 May 2019 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

For your (not at all) "off base" inquiry about something fishy that no one else had noticed for 17 hours. I don't know what you stopped, but I'm glad we didn't have to find out. Suffusion of Yellow (talk) 20:19, 22 May 2019 (UTC)
@Suffusion of Yellow: thanks so much. Glad I could help --DannyS712 (talk) 20:22, 22 May 2019 (UTC)

For recognizing a suspicious situation and bringing to light an ongoing security breach that could have been much worse. –xenotalk 22:49, 22 May 2019 (UTC)
@Xeno: thank you so much. Had I realized it was a security breach before posting, I would have emailed a 'crat first, but I'm glad that everything worked out. Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 23:18, 22 May 2019 (UTC)
