GR & FMP[edit]

Why do you think GR and FMP are not reliable? Plankton55 (talk) 22:37, 25 February 2017 (UTC)

They are built mostly on primary sources and user-generated content and it is often difficult to verify their claims without referring to secondary sources. Relevant discussion can be found here. SuperMarioManTalk 02:07, 27 February 2017 (UTC)

David Graham: recent page reversions[edit]

Hmm... hypothetically speaking, say an editor managed to engineer a radio interview with him, and one of the questions asked was "Were you a director at Five Rosecroft (management) Limited?", and he basically replied "Yes," adding "I resigned in 2001." Would that constitute a usable and reliable source, non-original research, and allow the info on the CompaniesHouse page online to be used without fear of it being removed? Plankton55 (talk) 10:08, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

@Plankton55: No, because the Companies House site is a public register. See WP:BLPPRIMARY: "Do not use trial transcripts and other court records, or other public documents, to support assertions about a living person. Do not use public records that include personal details, such as date of birth ..."

If a person's date of birth isn't easy to find we shouldn't be making OR analyses of sources like Companies House to ensure that Wikipedia includes it at all costs. See WP:BLPPRIVACY: we include only dates of birth "that have been widely published by reliable sources (i.e. not Companies House, not Genes Reunited, not Amazon cloud-computing services or anything else), or by sources linked to the subject such that it may reasonably be inferred that the subject does not object." As Graham doesn't appear to have published this information on his own site, there is no reason for us to do so here.

Now, of course, if Graham were to go on BBC Radio tomorrow and clearly state exactly when he was born, that would be a different matter. SuperMarioManTalk 20:35, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

And if you don't my asking, why is all of this (Graham's exact date of birth, whether or not he once directed a company, etc.) so important to you in the first place? If the information were truly notable and encyclopaedic we would be able to find it in something far more reliable and far less obscure than the likes of Companies House and Amazon AWS. SuperMarioManTalk 20:46, 20 April 2017 (UTC)



Is there anyway for this page Lamont Sincere to be unprotected. I would gladly appreciate it.

Zoyetu and August 2017 BLP Topic Ban[edit]

You are involved in a recently filed request for arbitration. Please review the request at Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case#Zoyetu and August 2017 BLP Topic Ban and, if you wish to do so, enter your statement and any other material you wish to submit to the Arbitration Committee. As threaded discussion is not permitted in most arbitration pages please ensure that you make all comments in your own section only. Additionally, the guide to arbitration and the Arbitration Committee's procedures may be of use.

Thanks, -- Amanda (aka DQ) 18:27, 16 October 2017 (UTC)

Thank you, but no. The entire dispute is one big WP:IDHT and I have no interest in debating it again. SuperMarioManTalk 20:27, 16 October 2017 (UTC)
Having had more time to gather my thoughts I have now left a statement on the requests page. SuperMarioManTalk 19:01, 17 October 2017 (UTC)
The request for arbitration has been declined. For the Arbitration Committee, Miniapolis 15:59, 19 October 2017 (UTC)

Zoyetu again[edit]

Zoyetu, who was "indefinitely topic banned from any edits relating to biographies of living persons of any kind, broadly construed" two months ago after you reported him at ANI [1], is still violating Wikipedia policies by adding trivial negative information to articles about colleges, violating WP:NOTNEWSPAPER, WP:UNDUE, WP:NPOV, and in at least one case WP:BLPCRIME [2]. Note, for instance, the "Incidents" sections of the following college articles, all of which sections he created in toto:

He also made the same sort of policy-violating additions to Hull College: [3], which Kudpung immediately deleted: [4]; but Zoyetu immediately reverted: [5].

It seems to me from these types of edits that Zoyetu still does not understand Wikipedia policies and does not seem interested in learning them or abiding by them. I would like Kudpung to look at these examples as well and opine. I don't know whether he should be reported immediately at ANI, or given a major and final warning, or given some immediate sanction given the fact that he has been warned multiple times about adding trivial and deliberately negative information to articles, especially articles pertaining to current institutions and/or living people. The WP:BLPCRIME violation, which was made 6 weeks after his BLP ban [6], is already a violation of his topic ban. Softlavender (talk) 01:29, 7 November 2017 (UTC)

Softlavender, the ANI closure was specifically for BLP infractions, so I don't think I have grounds to block just yet. Nevertheless, this editor has a tendentious propensity for newspaper style reporting of incidents which is not acceptable under WP:NOTNEWSPAPER, WP:UNDUE, WP:NPOV, whether with or without sources. I will give them a final warning, and point them to WP:WPSCH, and if they persist, I will block for disruptive editing. There won't be need for a peanut party at ANI for this. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 02:59, 7 November 2017 (UTC)
I've now removed the tendentious editing from the articles, which makes me involved, so if a content dispute arises, another admin will need to do the blocking. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 03:28, 7 November 2017 (UTC)
Hi Kudpung; thanks for your participation. Just to clarify, Zoyetu's topic ban was "from any edits relating to biographies of living persons of any kind, broadly construed" [7] [8], which this WP:BLPCRIME-vio [9], made 6 weeks after the TBan was enacted, is definitely and obviously in violation of. Softlavender (talk) 06:48, 7 November 2017 (UTC)
He's been extremely discourteous on his talk page and reverted all the cleanups of his newspaper-style scandal reporting, so I'm too involved to use my tools now. All in all, though, here's plenty to block him for now. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 13:49, 7 November 2017 (UTC)
Blocked for a month by Yunshui. Need to make sure he doesn't go straight back to those articles as soon as his block expires. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 07:41, 8 November 2017 (UTC)
Yes, I agree, we should put them all on our watch lists. If he does persist after his block expires, he's headed for a site ban, because no one can babysit all of one editor's edits. Softlavender (talk) 19:36, 8 November 2017 (UTC)
  • I think that the user's fundamental misunderstanding lies here: [10]. If it continues to influence them after their current block has expired an indefinite block looks inevitable. I'll be keeping an eye on their edits. SuperMarioManTalk 20:05, 12 November 2017 (UTC)

I do not appreciate you going onto my page with your arrogant attitude telling me that I have no right to edit something minor without a valid reason. I did not edit anything in, I just took it out because at first, there was no citation. You clearly don't know how Wikipedia works. If you add a new section with no citation or link, then it's not a valid source. Taking a small template out for having no link is not major. I have noticed articles on your page so I can point out your hypocrisy. Lecture me again and I'm taking this up with admin. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Pearl1993 (talkcontribs) 20:02, 11 September 2018 (UTC)

@Pearl1993:, SuperMarioMan is an admin (as am I). You calling this message, which includes links to Wikipedia policies and includes "please" and thank you", as "arrogant" is ironic given your message above wherein you tell an admin with 45k+ edits and 12 years of experience that they "clearly don't know how Wikipedia works". If this is the type of confrontational attitude that one can expect from you when pointing out concerns regarding your edits, Wikipedia may not be the place for you.--Jezebel's Ponyobons mots 20:19, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
@Jezebel's Ponyo: If SuperMarioMan had at least informed me about the basics of editing in a more constructive way instead of berating me then I would have appreciated his comment. He didn't. I'm sorry but his approach to me WAS arrogant. I have to provide a reason for even taking a minor edit out. And he finds that a problem. As I mentioned, I did not see a citation at first and I get a notification saying that I have no right to do so. That's not exactly fair is it? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Pearl1993 (talkcontribs)
@Pearl1993: They did not "berate" you. You are supposed to be explaining why you are removing content using edit summaries. This edit where you removed content and its accompanying source looks like vandalism, especially given that you had already done it once and were reverted. Both editors reverting you left clear edit summaries explaining why they were reverting you and SuperMarioMan left a completely polite message on your talk page further explaining the reason you were reverted. --Jezebel's Ponyobons mots 20:54, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
@Jezebel's Ponyo: You don't have to keep using quotemarks everytime. And that didn't used to be the case on Wikipedia. You were able to take out a template that had no citation without using the edit summaries. I used Wikipedia a few years ago (I was another user) so I remembered that that wasn't so much the case. This is something that must have changed over the years because I only remember that you had to provide a citation to edit something IN, not take it out. I am getting very frustrated with how this is going. I already mentioned why I took it out, because there was not a citation involved. So why is it that it got edited with no source linked yet I get a notification for taking something out for not using edit summaries? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Pearl1993 (talkcontribs)
I'm using quote marks because I'm quoting your words. The quote marks separate the words you've used from mine, which is what quote marks are meant to do. You repeatedly removed content along with two related sources without an edit summary. The sourced content was restored and two editors explained why it was restored. It was you who made the mistake, believing the material to be unsourced. Your response to having been asked to explain your edits was to lash out at the editor pointing out your error, telling them they don't know how things work and calling them a hypocrite. My sole point, and one that you seem to continue to miss, is that this is not an appropriated way to respond when editors provide you with information and guidelines when you give all appearances of being unaware of them. --Jezebel's Ponyobons mots 21:22, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
@Pearl1993: The sources are linked – they are two pages of the same book. The source details are contained in the two sets of coding that begin "<ref name". That coding produces citations 65 ("Bentley 2005, p. 37.") and 190 ("Bentley 2005, p. 124.") in the "References" section further down the page. Details of the book cited can be found in the bibliography at the end of that section. SuperMarioMan (Talk) 00:59, 12 September 2018 (UTC)

Buongiorno da Coreca e gentile richiesta di aiuto e tutorato.[edit]

Buongiorno da Coreca, ti scrivo per salutarti e sapere come stai. Io sto abbastanza bene per ora, cercando aiuto per alcuni articoli sulla Wikipedia in inglese. Ho visto dopo tante ricerche che tu fai al caso mio, conosci la mia lingua e spero che potrai aiutarmi nel tutorato, Io creo articoli da tempo, ma il mio inglese è un po' arrugginito, anche qualche nozione di wiki spesso mi sfugge. Comunque quello che ho bisogno è l'aiuto di miglioria per alcuni articoli, come Coreca, Coreca Reefs e Coreca Caves, questi articoli hanno bisogno solo di una miglioria nelle fonti e nella grammatica, sono presenti sulla Wikipedia in italiano (Coreca Caves) e il resto nella Wikipedia in francese e tedesco. Poi vorrei presentarti un po' di articoli che avrebbero bisogno della tua mano d'aiuto, ma ne parleremo in seguito se vorrai. Detto questo ti mando un augurio di bene e spero che potrai aiutarmi. Grazie ancora. --Luigi Salvatore Vadacchino (talk) 09:02, 24 September 2018 (UTC)

Hello. On the page Romeoville, IL, I had posted a list of the town's mayors. This list was removed by a moderator.

@Romeoville.mark: I have created your user draft page at User:Romeoville.mark/Romeoville, Illinois and copied in the table. You will need to find reliable sources confirming the names and dates before putting it back in the Romeoville, Illinois article. SuperMarioMan (Talk) 21:18, 28 September 2018 (UTC)

Thank you. How many of these names will I have to source before I can get this cleared? I can probably find some sort of newspaper article online about the election of some of the most recent officials, but citing the older ones will be very difficult. Romeoville.mark (talk) 20:48, 1 October 2018 (UTC)

@Romeoville.mark: In accordance with the verifiability policy, all entries on the list would need to be sourced. Unsourced entries could be challenged and/or removed. SuperMarioMan (Talk) 19:47, 3 October 2018 (UTC)

Administrator account security (Correction to Arbcom 2019 special circular)[edit]

ArbCom would like to apologise and correct our previous mass message in light of the response from the community.

Since November 2018, six administrator accounts have been compromised and temporarily desysopped. In an effort to help improve account security, our intention was to remind administrators of existing policies on account security — that they are required to "have strong passwords and follow appropriate personal security practices." We have updated our procedures to ensure that we enforce these policies more strictly in the future. The policies themselves have not changed. In particular, two-factor authentication remains an optional means of adding extra security to your account. The choice not to enable 2FA will not be considered when deciding to restore sysop privileges to administrator accounts that were compromised.

We are sorry for the wording of our previous message, which did not accurately convey this, and deeply regret the tone in which it was delivered.

For the Arbitration Committee, -Cameron11598 21:04, 4 May 2019 (UTC)
