Deletion of Draft:Ormuco[edit]

Dear Materialscientist,

I hope my message finds you well.

Last Wednesday, May 15, you deleted a draft I wrote for the company "Ormuco". I am wondering if I may receive further feedback.

The grounds for deletion were G11: Unambiguous advertising or promotion. I have reviewed G11. Unambiguous advertising or promotion as well as Wikipedia is not a soapbox or means of promotion.

I attempted to write neutrally in describing Ormuco's history and product offerings. I included five independent references including from Bloomberg, Financial Post, and the UK Department for International Trade. Nonetheless, my article was deleted.

I would like to know how I could improve the article should I like to rewrite it, or if you would suggest I submit the article for review through the Articles for Creation process.

I noticed previous versions of the Ormuco page have been deleted in 2013 for G11. Unambiguous advertising or promotion and 2014 for A7. No indication of importance (people, animals, organizations, web content, events). However, as time has elapsed since then, I have attempted to republish the Ormuco article, especially as Ormuco has patented its technology in 2016.

I believe mentions of Ormuco's 10+ year history, patent holdings, and media features pass through the notability test in User:Ihcoyc/The presumption of non-notability for Internet related, computing, and services businesses.

I would greatly appreciate hearing your thoughts. Thank you for your time.

(by talk reader) @LuoXizi: WP:B2B (which you point to) is just an essay. WP:NCORP and WP:GNG are the law of the land. History, patent holdings, and the rest don't matter. We need multiple, independent, reliable sources that provide significant coverage about the subject. As we've rejected this multiple times, I'd quit pressing the issue.

Blocked range[edit]

Hi Materialscientist,

Can you tell me which edits caused you to block (talk · contribs · WHOIS)? Someone who was blocked under that range is also using an account to edit, so I was wondering if the block was for those edits. Jayjg (talk) 15:47, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

Semi-Protection for some storm articles[edit]

Hello. Can you please Semi-Protect all of the listed articles? They have been popular targets for vandals recently. I refrained from requesting protection for some of those articles in order to honeypot vandals, but the sheer amount of vandalism that those articles (particularly Cyclone and Tropical cyclone) have experienced in the last few months is simply ridiculous. I'm also starting to grow tired of having to constantly police those articles. Can you please Semi-Protect them for a while to curb the disruption? Thanks.

Promotion-only account[edit]

Administrator, reporting a user to your attention. This account Extra taste of knowledge is clearly WP:NOTHERE. Fanboy account of actor Mammootty, adding promotional edits and edit warring for the same. Meaninglessly using edit summaries copied from other users. Trolling at others talk pages. Adding fake references which do not cite the promotional content added in order to deceive others. Ignoring warnings and removing edit warring talk page warning. Clearly not here to contribute anything. (talk) 17:45, 22 May 2019 (UTC)

Reemergence of account with unsourced edits[edit]

Hello! You had few reverted some unsourced huge edits made by an account named Fan101ovo on pages such as Commissioner of Karachi and Pakistan Administrative Service in the months of February and March. You had gone on to block the account from editing if I recall correctly as those warnings went unheeded. However, it has come to my notice that once again similar unsourced edits are being made by an new account named Sindhimanoo. Please look into this. Thank you (Ereckkarja (talk))

I'm not quite sure what's going on or why you've blocked them indefinitely, but you have made some serious errors: breaking the infobox in Iran, removing mention of Berlin as a state, reinserting a BLP violation into John Abraham (actor). And those are just the three I happen to look at! Please review. Thanks. El_C 04:12, 24 May 2019 (UTC)

Yes, my mass rollback of Maxfullhigh was definitely not a good idea, please revert me at will! Indefblock because I do believe this is a block evasion, but can't identify the master right away. Materialscientist (talk) 04:28, 24 May 2019 (UTC)

Spaceastronaut LTA[edit]

Hello. Regarding Wikipedia:Long-term abuse/Spaceastronaut and his IPs, I suspect that based on the extended edit history of Protecting power and the deletion logs of Graag and Pokemon Chaos Black that the vandal has been around for longer than what I wrote in the LTA report. Perhaps you might be willing to give me more info on him if you know some details? Thanks! Jalen D. Folf (talk) 16:48, 24 May 2019 (UTC)

I came across this user User talk:Runzegu where you posted an indef block notice, but I don;t see it blocked. An omission perhaps? Should it be blocked, or the notice removed? -- Alexf(talk) 10:37, 27 May 2019 (UTC)

Cyclone Tracy[edit]

Can you please Semi-Protect this article for about 3-6 months? The vandalism on that article has spiked in the last 2 weeks alone, and given the past and current trends, I expect the elevated level of disruptive behavior to continue at that article. Thanks. LightandDark2000 🌀 (talk) 23:59, 27 May 2019 (UTC)


Do you want to remove talk page access on this user you recently blocked? Seems like they're perfectly happy to keep acting a fool on their talk page despite being indeffed. They've made insinuations about the sexual activities of both you and me before and after the block was put in place. Hamtechperson 03:17, 28 May 2019 (UTC)

You blocked Ronaldobarisic02 in late 2018. Their only edits after the block were more vandalism in April, they haven't been active since, I just noticed the vandalism right now on one of the two pages and fixed it. Would a longer block be appropriate here? Thanks! SportingFlyer T·C 05:55, 30 May 2019 (UTC)

Warning received re unreferenced or poorly referenced additions[edit]

Dear Materialscientist, I too am busy in the outside world, but enjoying a few days' break. Sometimes - mea maxima culpa - I contribute without signing in. Today I found a note from yourself telling me to desist from adding unreferenced or poorly referenced material or I would be blocked. Never happened before! It was on the IP page and not on my User page. Is this owing to my contribution, which has since been edited, to the Dead or Alive article? (Steve Coy's passing)

I've been contributing to Wikipedia for 25 years or so. (at least 20, methinks) - although just at the level of writing things and creating the odd article. There has been the occasional shout of praise for my work too, so please accept my apols if I've offended in any way. No need for reply but if you wish to, please send to my Talk page.

Best, FCleff (talk) 14:55, 30 May 2019 (UTC)

(by talk reader) @FCleff: "I've been contributing to Wikipedia for 25 years or so. (at least 20, methinks)" This isn't so. Wikipedia is 18 years old and FClef (whom you claim to be) didn't start editing until four years after that. I mention this point because being a long-time contributor does not (in my mind) excuse sloppy editing. As this is a collaborative project, I would expect long-time volunteers to remember what they owe the rest of their fellow editors. Chris Troutman (talk) 15:03, 30 May 2019 (UTC)
Blimey! {tips cap contritely} So sorry for getting my guesstimate wrong. Yes, I am FClef. I take your point, even if it is delivered with a sneering highhandedness that your elevated position does not excuse.FCleff (talk) 15:30, 30 May 2019 (UTC)

User returns with more vandalism[edit]

MaterialScientist, you blocked back in December after a series of edits altering the accurate scores in articles so they are no longer correct. They've come back a number of times since and have done the same, though no one has reported it. It's a number of hours since the most recent edits were done (each one reverted), but they're clearly not here to build an encyclopedia, instead attempting to reduce its accuracy. If there's anything you can do to further discourage this activity, it would be much appreciated. Many thanks. BlueMoonset (talk) 04:37, 1 June 2019 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Administrator Barnstar Hires.png The Admin's Barnstar
Your indef block on IaddFalseEdits. I was the user who reported him to UAA! PS what (wiki)chemicals do you use to do your work on Wikipedia such as fighting and blocking vandals? Related to this matter is that I chose the alternate version of this barnstar because I think (no offence) it looks more menacing to those vandals.

Thanks. (talk) 05:08, 1 June 2019 (UTC)


I have noticed where a certain "contributor" has been vandalizing a page called Dina d'malkhuta dina. You can find him here: 2804:18:811:CD91:86B0:52A5:83B4:BFB2 (talk · contribs). I hope that he will desist from his actions.Davidbena (talk) 20:39, 2 June 2019 (UTC)

Adding the name of Jalilpur village in distt Bijnor[edit]

Sir . I wanted to highlight that certain important both historical & polotical names of villages have been left out from the list of Bijnor distt . One of them happens to be Jalilpur village , it's an important village of the distt , it's a Block Division , having a history dating back to a couple of hundred years .. Lot of people wanting to seek information about this village . But sadly enough. Wikipedia does not cover this village ..

Rangeblock question[edit]

The rangeblock on (talk · contribs · WHOIS) (which I happen to be caught in) has a relatively long block duration and has the account creation blocked flag set. Is there a good reason to block an entire /16 (especially a residential one, where users might want to create accounts)? I'm just thinking this could either be reduced in scope, duration, or perhaps removing the account creation flag. Apparently as an account creator I can't bypass that flag, which makes doing WP:ACC work a bit, well, problematic. — AfroThundr (u · t · c) 01:05, 4 June 2019 (UTC)

@Materialscientist: you around? — AfroThundr (u · t · c) 20:03, 8 June 2019 (UTC)
Around, and yes, there was a very good reason to block an entire /16. Blocking account creation is a default block setting, which stops experiences abusers from bypassing the block. Materialscientist (talk) 23:19, 8 June 2019 (UTC)

Vandalism at 1970 Bhola cyclone[edit]

Hello. Can you please Semi-Protect 1970 Bhola cyclone for at least 5 years? The article has been frequently, persistently vandalized for the past 10 years, and almost every single anon edit within the last decade were some form of vandalism (there's also plenty of nasty activity in the Edit Filter Log). Since the article is about a very notable storm (the deadliest tropical cyclone recorded), and since it's a highly visible article, I doubt that the pace of vandalism is going to wind down. Thanks.

Recent edit to Contempt of cop[edit]

If you had checked the version history of the article, you would have realized that my edit to that paragraph was very much pertinent to keeping the article up-to-date.

1999 Odisha cyclone[edit]

Can you please Semi-Protect this article for at least a few years?

Unblock request on hold[edit]

There's an unblock request at User talk:Cornell737, relating to a checkuser block which you placed some time ago on an IP range. Would you have a look at it, please? You will need to look at edits which I have revision-deleted to hide the IP address information, as the editor has said that he or she doesn't want it to be publicly visible. The editor claims to have recently moved and so is likely to have taken over an IP address previously used by someone else, but I guess a CU should probably be able to confirm or refute that claim. JamesBWatson (talk) 15:00, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

By the way, I referred to you on that editor's talk page as "he", because I am under the impression that is right, but I don't now know where I got that impression from. You don't have your sex specified in your user preferences, and I can't find any confirmation on your user page, so if it should be "she" please tell me, so that I can avoid making the same mistake again.

About being blocked?[edit]

Hello, I just created a account and didn't know if I was still blocked. I didn't understand why I was blocked in the first place. Was it because I didn't have a account?

Bloom Energy page updates[edit]

I work for Bloom Energy, a company that manufactures solid oxide fuel cells for businesses looking for distributed power generation systems. Bloom Energy prepared a draft of a substantially improved version of the page that I believe is more neutral, comprehensive, and timely.

In keeping with Wikipedia's conflict of interest guidelines, I was hoping to find an independent editor willing to give the draft a look-over and provide any feedback. I saw that you nominated the page for a DYK and thought you might be interested in the topic. I would be forever in your debt if you happen to have the time/interest to take a look.

AIV removals[edit]

Can you explain why you removed both my reports here [2]. They are both editing disruptivly, the second one being straight up vandalism, but you didn't even mention declining the Dustin account. StaticVapor message me! 05:42, 13 June 2019 (UTC)

I didn't notice DustinLeach99, blocked them now. MethodMaster101 is not for AIV, they are explaining their edits and issuing them level-4 tags right away was incorrect. Materialscientist (talk) 06:10, 13 June 2019 (UTC)
You might have missed it, but I stated that they have warnings in their talk page history. They are using edit summaries, which is good, but it is always just their speculation or personal synthesis of past events. Thank you for blocking Dustin, I had assumed it was a mistake.

Reinstatement of Ninoy Aquino station[edit]

Hi Materialscientist!

It has been awhile since I was able to update the draft of the Ninoy Aquino station article to include notable events and sections which pertain to the station itself. Given that the station is now at full-swing construction and the updated draft here, may I request for the article (in its current draft form) to be reinstated into the main title as agreed upon before and be protected from vandalism especially from User:Very Deep Thinker which continues to engage in an edit war in all templates and articles pertaining to the station by either deleting them or renaming them despite the presence of credible and verifiable primary, secondary, and tertiary sources with the only reasoning being personal feelings against the name/political affiliation of the name.

CAPTCHA article[edit]

Hello. Would you mind Semi-Protecting this article? It appears to be a favorite target for vandals, especially since IPs frequently have to deal with CAPTCHA tests when adding references (also probably due to the common knowledge of this test).

Generally, this vandal is using the same IP for three or four edits before changing it after two or three days. We should block each IP adress at the first vandalism. He is always doing the same kind of edits (adding random users with random sources) so you shouldn't wait.--Le Petit Chat (talk) 08:16, 16 June 2019 (UTC)
