Rebecca Pope Deletion Review[edit]

Hi, you were right, I don't really understand how to perform the deletion review. Can you tell me how to set it up? Thanks, TRLIJC19 (talk) 16:27, 12 November 2011 (UTC)

Mitchell Landzaat[edit]

It is strange to see that this article is removed. For one administrator, it is properly sourced and notable, for the other one not. But life is strange, so I have to do it with this. Is it possible to get a copy into my own userspace. I don't like the info to get lost forever and prefer to have on my own computer then.

In fact I like to know why you have removed this article. There are so many actors on Wikipedia that score no better then Mitchell Landzaat. Are you going to remove them all after I have nominated them? Night of the Big Wind talk 12:10, 13 November 2011 (UTC)

ArbCom election 2011[edit]

Dear Eluchil404, thank you for nominating yourself as a candidate in the 2011 Arbitration Committee elections. On behalf of the coordinators, allow me to welcome you to the elections and make a few suggestions to help you get set up. By now, you ought to have written your nomination statement, which should be no more than 400 words. Although there are no fixed guidelines for how to write a statement, note that many candidates treat this as an opportunity, in their own way, to put a cogent case as to why editors should vote for them—highlighting the strengths they would bring to the job, and convincing the community they would cope with the workload and responsibilities of being an arbitrator.

In order for your candidacy to be valid, your nomination statement must also include a declaration of any alternate or former user accounts you have contributed under (or, in the case of privacy concerns, a declaration that you have disclosed them to the Arbitration Committee), and must express your willingness and ability to meet the Wikimedia Foundation's access to nonpublic data policy.

You should at this point have your own questions subpage; feel free to begin answering the questions as you please. Together, the nomination statement and questions subpage should be transcluded to your candidate profile, whose talkpage will serve as the central location for discussion of your candidacy. If you experience any difficulty setting up these pages, please follow the links in the footer below. If you need assistance, on this or any other matter (including objectionable questions or commentary by others on your candidate pages), please notify the coordinators at their talkpage. If you have followed these instructions correctly, congratulations, you are now officially a candidate for the Arbitration Committee. Good luck! Michaeldsuarez (talk) 14:11, 21 November 2011 (UTC)

Can you also look over your row on the table on the Wikipedia:Arbitration_Committee_Elections_December_2011/Candidates/Guide? Feel free to correct any mistakes or to fill in any missing information. --Michaeldsuarez (talk) 14:15, 21 November 2011 (UTC)

Concerning the Arbitration Committee Elections[edit]


As a candidate for the Arbitration Committee elections, please be aware that your name has been entered into the SecurePoll ballot and can no longer be removed barring the most dire of emergencies and direct manipulation of the database. While you may still withdraw from the election, your name will not be removed from the ballot, but only struck through. If you have any further questions on the process, feel free to contact myself, the other election administrators, or the election coordinators. --Tznkai (talk), 2011 Arbitration Committee Election Administrator. 21:18, 26 November 2011 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Deletion review/Log/2011 November 24#Scam Newton and Scam newton[edit]

Hi Eluchil404. You closed Wikipedia:Deletion review/Log/2011 November 24#Scam Newton and Scam newton 14 hours early. Were you aware that you were closing the DRV early? Cunard (talk) 08:56, 1 December 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for the explanation here. I had not noticed that the nominator was a sock, which justifies the early closure, and agree that the sock should not have been given attention in the closing statement. Cunard (talk) 23:37, 1 December 2011 (UTC)

RFA thank you[edit]

Thank you for your comment and support at my recent successful RFA. I'm certainly not perfect, but being now the new fellow in the fraternity of administrators, I will do my best to live up to the confidence shown in me by others, will move slowly and carefully when using the mop, will seek input from others before any action of which I might be unsure, and will try not to break anything beyond repair. Best, Schmidt, MICHAEL Q. 21:53, 4 December 2011 (UTC)

MSU Interview[edit]

Dear Eluchil404,

My name is Jonathan Obar user:Jaobar, I'm a professor in the College of Communication Arts and Sciences at Michigan State University and a Teaching Fellow with the Wikimedia Foundation's Education Program. This semester I've been running a little experiment at MSU, a class where we teach students about becoming Wikipedia administrators. Not a lot is known about your community, and our students (who are fascinated by wiki-culture by the way!) want to learn how you do what you do, and why you do it. A while back I proposed this idea (the class) to the community HERE, were it was met mainly with positive feedback. Anyhow, I'd like my students to speak with a few administrators to get a sense of admin experiences, training, motivations, likes, dislikes, etc. We were wondering if you'd be interested in speaking with one of our students.

So a few things about the interviews:

  • Interviews will last between 15 and 30 minutes.
  • Interviews can be conducted over skype (preferred), IRC or email. (You choose the form of communication based upon your comfort level, time, etc.)
  • All interviews will be completely anonymous, meaning that you (real name and/or pseudonym) will never be identified in any of our materials, unless you give the interviewer permission to do so.
  • All interviews will be completely voluntary. You are under no obligation to say yes to an interview, and can say no and stop or leave the interview at any time.
  • The entire interview process is being overseen by MSU's institutional review board (ethics review). This means that all questions have been approved by the university and all students have been trained how to conduct interviews ethically and properly.

Bottom line is that we really need your help, and would really appreciate the opportunity to speak with you. If interested, please send me an email at (to maintain anonymity) and I will add your name to my offline contact list. If you feel comfortable doing so, you can post your name HERE instead.

If you have questions or concerns at any time, feel free to email me at I will be more than happy to speak with you.

Thanks in advance for your help. We have a lot to learn from you.

I've noticed that an article about Apartheid in Bahrain was deleted last year for many reasons, including the user who created the article and not merely the content of it. Now I plan to write an article about Bahrain and the apartheid analogy (or similar title). The article Human rights in Bahrain is already long, inserting a lot of this will only make the problem worse, that's why I see that a new article is required. I plan to make it NPOV with RS and to write it in my own user space before moving it to the main space. Any suggestions/recommendations are welcome. I have found a copy of the deleted article on a Google search, would it be fine if I use info from it? Mohamed CJ (talk) 10:08, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Our memory and its capacity[edit]

But you said yourself to move that content. Can you restore it temporarily as a subpage of thatpage to move content thats moveable?
Could be a redirct there though. That option was no open when people sayid delete.Lihaas (talk) 16:15, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Thanks again for the userfication. I've done some work on it at User:Star Mississippi/Ataria and while I think it's better, I'm still not sure if it establishes notability. I personally think museums are notable, but English sources are an issue here. Do the recognition of the building's architecture help at all? Your thoughts? Thanks StarM 22:42, 21 April 2012 (UTC)

thanks for your feedback. Some of the sources are in Spanish, which I can read. The bulk are in Basque - I think, based on its location, - which I cannot read. I'm going to flag it for WP Spain to see if people know of other sources that might not turn up in Google. I'm just off a long wikibreak. Do I do the old afd tag on the talk, or just post a note that there was an AFD that closed as delete, but that this is different enough not to be a repost? Thanks! StarM 19:47, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
thanks for the heads up. It's back at AfD so I suppose I'll worry about that if it survives. StarM 03:51, 23 April 2012 (UTC)

Arthur MacArthur IV[edit]

It was shown in the AFD that multiple reliable and independent sources had provided significant coverage of him.Some deletion advocates provided irrelevant arguments, such as clanming that he had not achieved enough in his own life, ignoring the notability guidelines, which only require that reliable and independent sources had multiple instances of significant coverage, for whatever reason. You noted that there was "no consensus for deletion," which should have resulted in "no deletion," leaving the article intact. You chose instead to act as a "super-editor" and stated you were making an "editorial decision" to replace the article with a redirect to the article about his father, leaving readers with no information about him at all, other than "he was born in 1938." This is a mistake, since there was no consensus for a redirect, and I request that you undo the redirect and restore the article.No one has appointed you a "super editor." Regards. Edison (talk) 02:44, 2 August 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for clarifying that the redirect was an ordinary editorial decision, reversible by any editor, rather than the consensus of the participants in the AFD. I note the wire service stories and Life magazine article specifically about him, and not about his father with just passing reference to him, and the longevity of the coverage, over many decades. Some AFD participants' complaint that he had not independently achieved enough significant things ignores our notability guideline. If I undo the redirect, I will shortly thereafter add more refs. Edison (talk) 04:13, 2 August 2012 (UTC)

Harry Stickel Deletion[edit]

Good Afternoon,

I received notice through my watchlist today that an article I reviewed and accepted through AFC was deleted today. When I looked back through the process I see that it was nominated for deletion, then the proposed deletion was discussed and finally it was deleted. My first notice of any of this was today, after the article had been deleted. I realize I could ask for a review of that decision but it was clearly made after careful consideration by the community.

I was just wondering if there was any process by which an editor who has reviewed an article in good faith could be notified at an earlier stage in the process? I think it might be useful when discussing a proposed deletion to have the input of the person who accepted the article as to why he/she thought the article met the necessary Wikipedia criteria. At the end of the day, of course, one person's view does not and should not carry the day but given the work that reviewers often put into the process, sometimes several days of our time, to help a contributor bring a submission into line with the criteria I can't imagine that we wouldn't have something meaningful to contribute to the discussion if we were notified that it was taking place.

Any information you can provide would be appreciated.

Thank you. Snowysusan Talk 18:22, 28 August 2012 (UTC)

merge/redirect is the same as deletion[edit]

Concerning Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/East_River_Monster, a merge/redirect is the same as deleting the article in this case.

Followup RFC to WP:RFC/AAT now in community feedback phase[edit]

Hello. As a participant in Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Abortion article titles, you may wish to register an opinion on its followup RFC, Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Abortion advocacy movement coverage, which is now in its community feedback phase. Please note that WP:RFC/AAMC is not simply a repeat of WP:RFC/AAT, and is attempting to achieve better results by asking a more narrowly-focused, policy-based question of the community. Assumptions based on the previous RFC should be discarded before participation, particularly the assumption that Wikipedia has or inherently needs to have articles covering generalized perspective on each side of abortion advocacy, and that what we are trying to do is come up with labels for that.

New information warranting TheAmazingAtheist undeletion[edit]

He is much more notable since the last deletion of this page; he has been mentioned in countless 3rd-party sources by this point and his viewership has mushroomed to 125,000,000 YouTube views. That is 12 times as much as Karmin's "Hello", a song which has significant radio airplay and its own Wikipedia page, the existence of which is warranted only via awards which measure popularity. The only argument I could think of *against* including someone so obviously famous/infamous is that their mentions will be mostly on websites and not traditional print media, but even then you can find mentions or coverage of him which lean more toward traditional media.

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svgHello, Eluchil404. This message is intended to notify administrators of important changes to the protection policy.

Extended confirmed protection (also known as "30/500 protection") is a new level of page protection that only allows edits from accounts at least 30 days old and with 500 edits. The automatically assigned "extended confirmed" user right was created for this purpose. The protection level was created following this community discussion with the primary intention of enforcing various arbitration remedies that prohibited editors under the "30 days/500 edits" threshold to edit certain topic areas.

In July and August 2016, a request for comment established consensus for community use of the new protection level. Administrators are authorized to apply extended confirmed protection to combat any form of disruption (e.g. vandalism, sock puppetry, edit warring, etc.) on any topic, subject to the following conditions:

  • Extended confirmed protection may only be used in cases where semi-protection has proven ineffective. It should not be used as a first resort.
  • A bot will post a notification at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard of each use. MusikBot currently does this by updating a report, which is transcluded onto the noticeboard.
Please review the protection policy carefully before using this new level of protection on pages. Thank you.
This message was sent to the administrators' mass message list. To opt-out of future messages, please remove yourself from the list. 17:47, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

Latin American 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Latin America/The 10,000 Challenge ‎ has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge and Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like Brazil, Mexico, Peru and Argentina etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. At some stage we hope to run some contests to benefit Latin American content, a destubathon perhaps, aimed at reducing the stub count would be a good place to start, based on the current Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon. If you would like to see this happening for Latin America, and see potential in this attracting more interest and editors for the country/countries you work on please sign up and being contributing to the challenge! This is a way we can target every country of Latin America, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia.

Please note that TOTP based two-factor authentication is now available for all administrators. In light of the recent compromised accounts, you are encouraged to add this additional layer of security to your account. It may be enabled on your preferences page in the "User profile" tab under the "Basic information" section. For basic instructions on how to enable two-factor authentication, please see the developing help page for additional information. Important: Be sure to record the two-factor authentication key and the single use keys. If you lose your two factor authentication and do not have the keys, it's possible that your account will not be recoverable. Furthermore, you are encouraged to utilize a unique password and two-factor authentication for the email account associated with your Wikimedia account. This measure will assist in safeguarding your account from malicious password resets. Comments, questions, and concerns may be directed to the thread on the administrators' noticeboard.

A new user right for New Page Patrollers[edit]

Hi Eluchil404.

A new user group, New Page Reviewer, has been created in a move to greatly improve the standard of new page patrolling. The user right can be granted by any admin at PERM. It is highly recommended that admins look beyond the simple numerical threshold and satisfy themselves that the candidates have the required skills of communication and an advanced knowledge of notability and deletion. Admins are automatically included in this user right.

It is anticipated that this user right will significantly reduce the work load of admins who patrol the performance of the patrollers. However,due to the complexity of the rollout, some rights may have been accorded that may later need to be withdrawn, so some help will still be needed to some extent when discovering wrongly applied deletion tags or inappropriate pages that escape the attention of less experienced reviewers, and above all, hasty and bitey tagging for maintenance. User warnings are available here but very often a friendly custom message works best.

If you have any questions about this user right, don't hesitate to join us at WT:NPR. (Sent to all admins).MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:46, 15 November 2016 (UTC)


You recently closed Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Requisition (2nd nomination), deleting the article in question. I'm not seeing a consensus to delete there -- 2 keeps and 3 deletes seems a fairly even split. I'm quite certain that the topic is notable, just needing more work to flesh it out. Please can you userfy it for me and I'll develop it further. Andrew D. (talk) 09:38, 11 December 2016 (UTC)

  • When performing some administrative actions the reason field briefly gave suggestions as text was typed. This change has since been reverted so that issues with the implementation can be addressed. (T34950)
  • Following the latest RfC concluding that Pending Changes 2 should not be used on the English Wikipedia, an RfC closed with consensus to remove the options for using it from the page protection interface, a change which has now been made. (T156448)
  • The Foundation has announced a new community health initiative to combat harassment. This should bring numerous improvements to tools for admins and CheckUsers in 2017.

Question about The Wurn Technique[edit]

Hi. Fairly new-ish editor here. I was running through some deorphaning to spread my awareness out and ran int The Wurn Technique. I did a bit of digging and decided that this page looks to fail notability so I tagged it for a proposed delete. Wikipedia indicated that had happened before so I removed the page and went here, Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/The Wurn Technique. I noticed that you closed the discussion and found that deletion review suggests bringing it up with the closing administrator. Not being entirely sure how things work here yet (but rapidly learning) and noticing that this was an old delete I was hoping that you could maybe fill me in on what's up with the page. Please ping me as I will not have you talkpage watchlisted. Cheers. Rap Chart Mike (talk) 18:19, 9 August 2018 (UTC)

@Rap Chart Mike: It looks like the page was recreated after I had deleted it. Technically it could still be deleted through the Proposed Deletion Process as the old AfD was closed as Delete rather than Keep but you are probably better off starting a new AfD at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/The Wurn Technique (2nd nomination) following the procedures at WP:AfD. Deletion Review needn't be involved both because the previous discussion was so long ago and because it actually agreed with your desire to delete the page. Recreations of deleted pages can normally be speedy deleted under criterion WP:G4 unless they have been expanded to address the concerns that led to deletion but after 5 years a new discussion is probably the best way forward. Eluchil404 (talk) 03:44, 11 August 2018 (UTC)
Much obliged. I'll look into beginning that process in a day or two. (talk) 11:29, 11 August 2018 (UTC)
