Cultural differences[edit]

I get why you made that change to Template:Ethnic Boston sidebar, but I don't get why you only changed the one item. Don't you think there are cultural differences between people in Ireland and Americans whose ancestors emigrated from Ireland in 1840? It seems odd to me to single out African ancestry in this way. --MopTop (talk) 04:31, 3 January 2018 (UTC)

@MopTop: It has to do with the involuntary nature of how the early West Africans came (slavery); the African-American identity had formed in the states (yes there West African influences but it's homegrown). I believe written sources distinguish between "African-American" (usually a native-born descendant of slaves) and (recent) "African immigrant" - Some African Americans accused recent African immigrants of not being "African American" https://books.google.com/books?id=WOC2AgAAQBAJ&pg=PA227 - The 2005 Philadelphia incident: http://web.archive.org/web/20051125103640/http://allafrica.com/stories/200511150422.html - WhisperToMe (talk) 09:04, 3 January 2018 (UTC)

Houston area school articles[edit]

Hello WhisperToMe,

I'm wondering if edits like this ("home of the...") are something you've seen before. I reverted a number of similar edits to Houston area school articles about a week ago, but whoever it is is back again on a different IP address. Thanks, and Happy New Year! ​—DoRD (talk)​ 01:26, 8 January 2018 (UTC)

@DoRD: Don't know of these particular edits/editors. He/she is referring to the schools' mascots. Perhaps those can be listed at Spring Branch ISD, but IMO this is unnecessary at the Northbrook High School page. BTW Yes Prep does operate a campus at Northbrook High, so I'll restore that. WhisperToMe (talk) 01:43, 8 January 2018 (UTC)
Yes, you're right about the Yes Prep edit. As a very long ago graduate of an SBISD school, I recognized the mascots, but since you're a lot more active in this area, I was just wondering if you had noticed a long-term pattern. Thanks ​—DoRD (talk)​ 02:18, 8 January 2018 (UTC)
@DoRD: Yw! I do edit a lot of school articles but my attention had been mainly focused on schools abroad at the moment :) WhisperToMe (talk) 05:07, 8 January 2018 (UTC)

Cross-wiki stalking problem[edit]

Hello, and nice meeting you today! Could you look into this cross-wiki stalking problem I had experienced? I had been constantly reverted across projects since 2016, which I presumed was done by the same user since the IPs they used are either from the same range or location (like 36.234.0.0/16 and 101.8.0.0/13). Example: [1], [2], [3], [4], [5]. Also I believe there are other users from mainland China who were stalked. Thanks :)--Jsjsjs1111 (talk) 08:59, 24 January 2018 (UTC)

Letter from Wikimedia User Group Hong Kong[edit]

Dear WhisperToMe,

Thank you for your interest in our user group. To obtain the status as a Wikimedia User Group, we have to make a decision on our mission. A member of the user group put forward a motion to amend the provisional missions proposed in March 2017 since i) it is unable to reflect the user group’s actual operation and social situation and ii) it has never been endorsed by a majority of members of the user group. You are welcome to endorse or discuss on this motion on Meta (link.) We look forward to your reply.

Yours sincerely,

Spring Roll Conan ( Talk · Contributions ) 15:05, 31 March 2018 (UTC)

The consultation on the proposed amendments to the user group's mission has ended. However, the results can't be confirmed instantly due to errors in my statement. You are welcome to comment on ways to deal with it on our meta page. Regards, --Spring Roll Conan ( Talk · Contributions ) 14:29, 1 June 2018 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of NIKI[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article NIKI has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, this biography of a living person will be deleted after seven days unless it has at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp/dated}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within seven days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. PRehse (talk) 17:09, 21 April 2018 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Draft:Gremlin (company)[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Draft:Gremlin (company), requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, group, product, service, person, or point of view and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become encyclopedic. Please read the guidelines on spam and Wikipedia:FAQ/Organizations for more information.

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.

What happened in my case is I didn't see instructions before the TOC and figured "I've been around since 2003 and have been through many discussions, so I have a handle on how it works." WhisperToMe (talk) 23:48, 25 April 2018 (UTC)
Makes sense. I just added a very similar box above the TOC, to "force" people to see it (too risky to just link to the instructions, as many users won't bother to follow the link). It's now all a bit redundant, but there's no telling how users come to that page, so I think having slightly redundant instructions in multiple places is better than trying to have one centralized set of instructions... - dcljr (talk) 00:14, 26 April 2018 (UTC)

a favor for Lizzie Cundy[edit]

good morning from Coreca, I'm writing to greet you and know how you are, I'm pretty good for now, I saw this article and I thought I'd give it a hand. I was wondering if you could possibly refresh the article, maybe updating it a bit. Then if I can do something for you, ask quietly, I will help you in Italian and its dialects. a greeting from Calabria and see you soon!--Luigi Salvatore Vadacchino (talk) 06:19, 26 April 2018 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Atrivo[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Atrivo has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Article for the company is based only on a singular event, does not fit notability criteria per WP:CORP.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist.

Hello, from the Portals WikiProject...[edit]

You are invited to join the effort to revitalize and improve the Portal system...

The Portals WikiProject was rebooted 9 days ago, and is going strong. Fifty-two editors have joined so far, with more joining daily.

We're having a blast, and excitement is high...

Our goal is to update, upgrade, and maintain portals.

In addition to working directly on portals, we are developing tools to make building and maintaining portals easier. We've finished one so far, with more to come.

Discussions are underway about how to upgrade portals, and what the portals of the future will be.

There are plenty of tasks (including WikiGnome tasks too) on the WikiProject page.

With more to come.

We may even surprise ourselves and exceed all expectations. Who knows what we will be able to accomplish in what may become the biggest Wikicollaboration in years.

See ya at the WikiProject!

Speedy deletion nomination of South Texas Dental[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on South Texas Dental requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a company, corporation or organization that does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

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. DGG ( talk ) 09:25, 15 May 2018 (UTC)

I decided not to place this speedy; I thought at first they were another batch of promotional articles for dentists, but I see that is not the case. I need to think further about the articles on the various chains you have been writing. O'm a little concerned about over-detailed negative information. ( DGG ( talk ) 09:33, 15 May 2018 (UTC)
@DGG: It's a tough situation; ordinarily an article shouldn't be overly negative, but the media reliable source coverage for the likes of All Smiles Dental Centers and Small Smiles Dental Centers (both defunct) were almost universally negative, just like coverage of Bernie Madoff. If the vast majority of RS'es are about accused fraud/etc that's not an attack article.
In the case of South Texas Dental I didn't see as much negative coverage on them; they're just the guys who took over all the All Smiles places when that chain closed.
WhisperToMe (talk) 14:50, 15 May 2018 (UTC)
It also seems to mr that South Texas Dental is not really notability , even in a negative sense. DGG ( talk ) 01:39, 16 May 2018 (UTC)
@DGG: Yeah, I haven't seen a lot of press about it. I just searched Google news and saw that the main press was that South Texas Dental acquired All Smiles back in 2013. Feel free to nominate for AFD if you like WhisperToMe (talk) 02:31, 16 May 2018 (UTC)
might it be better to merge? Usually we merge into the later company, but if the earlier one is the most notable, perhaps that's better? I saw these because I am trying to s=do something about promotional and other dubious entries for dentists, dermatologists, etc. Are you interested in this field, of just accidentallly found these? DGG ( talk ) 05:52, 16 May 2018 (UTC)
@DGG:, it could be possible to do a merge; I think a discussion outlining the two options would be best since the situation is complicated. All Smiles Dental Centers is certainly notable; it was the small company and no longer exists. South Texas Dental existed before All Smiles (there was no rename) and they took over the remaining practices, but they got little press coverage.
There was a wave of large dental companies (national and statewide) which had Medicaid families as customer bases forming circa the mid-2000s, and after then some of the practices were accused of Medicaid fraud by news media and/or by customers; the US government intervened in some of these cases. I read newspaper articles about some of these practices (Small Smiles and All Smiles were the two that generated the most media coverage) and used the articles as the bases of the Wikipedia articles. In fact there's a Congressional report (Alternate link) that talks about how Small Smiles (CSHM) was accused of fraud, and it also discusses ReachOut Healthcare America
One important thing is that I made sure Spanish versions of some articles were started; this is because many of the Medicaid families affected were low income immigrants from Latin America who had poor English comprehension. The boy who was documented in Roberta Baskin's report was a Hispanic boy from Langley Park, Maryland.

Thank you very much[edit]

The RfC discussion to eliminate portals was closed May 12, with the statement "There exists a strong consensus against deleting or even deprecating portals at this time." This was made possible because you and others came to the rescue. Thank you for speaking up.

By the way, the current issue of the Signpost features an article with interviews about the RfC and the Portals WikiProject.

I'd also like to let you know that the Portals WikiProject is working hard to make sure your support of portals was not in vain. Toward that end, we have been working diligently to innovate portals, while building, updating, upgrading, and maintaining them. The project has grown to 80 members so far, and has become a beehive of activity.

Our two main goals at this time are to automate portals (in terms of refreshing, rotating, and selecting content), and to develop a one-page model in order to make obsolete and eliminate most of the 150,000 subpages from the portal namespace by migrating their functions to the portal base pages, using technologies such as selective transclusion. Please feel free to join in on any of the many threads of development at the WikiProject's talk page, or just stop by to see how we are doing. If you have any questions about portals or portal development, that is the best place to ask them.

If you would like to keep abreast of developments on portals, keep in mind that the project's members receive updates on their talk pages. The updates are also posted here, for your convenience.

Again, we can't thank you enough for your support of portals, and we hope to make you proud of your decision. Sincerely,    — The Transhumanist   10:21, 25 May 2018 (UTC)

Wiki ES and WikiProject Houston[edit]

Hi WhisperToMe:

  • IIRC, a few years ago you had sent a message asking about contributions to Wiki: ES. (My attempt to archive my talk page is a big fail: the bot removed the old content, but there is no archive.) Lately I have been reading SP and FR wikis, and my competency for those languages is picking up, though much of it really depends on the subject. I have been able to read some of the Spanish-language sources enough to edit the EN articles, and I have even made a few light edits of a few SP articles related to Mexico. One of the main challenges is finding reliable and stable sources of Mexican-related content over the Internet, which hinders the development of those articles.
  • You are listed at WikiProject Houston. Do you know if this project is active? Most of the editors listed there are no longer active on Wikipedia, and I cannot see that there any project-functions being executed since about 3-4 years ago, for example, page assessment, coordination of page improvement, and articles requested. I have made attempts to engage the group, and these have been roundly ignored. OTOH, some of the editors listed at the project page are very strong. Do you have any insight?

Thanks, Oldsanfelipe (talk) 15:18, 30 June 2018 (UTC)

@Oldsanfelipe: Nice to reach out!
1. As for WikiProject Houston I and User:RJN may be the only active editors left. As Wikipedia matured there are fewer long term editors...
* One thing that IMO would really help are Spanish-language articles on the METRORail stops.
2. I wonder how many Mexican libraries or newspapers have their microfilms open. Getting access to microfilm content could be a way of getting around this issue...
WhisperToMe (talk) 04:00, 1 July 2018 (UTC)
@WhisperToMe: Happy Canada Day!
Many of the editors with the oldest identities at WikiProject Houston never made many edits, unless they were maintaining multiple accounts. I think much of the activity there prior to 2008 involved engagement of the local experts writing unsourced material (even if it was often true). Do you know who organized it and if they are still on WP?
I have made one sad little edit on the Monterrey transit system. Here is the diff: [6]. All I did is find a new source and instantiate a new number for buses in their fleet. By reading these SP wiki articles, I am acquiring the vocabulary for writing about transit. Metrorrey, the Spanish name for the system in Monterrey, is amidst scrutiny from the local press about where the money has gone and for what. Local officials had announced that a third fixed-guideway line, a mostly elevated line would be operational. This article [7] explains that 600 million pesos have been appropriated this year for Linea 3 for building stations and elevated track. Metrorrey has not even taken bids for the new railcars [8], which are not interchangeable with the other two lines. There is still a Nuevo Leon web page up [9] claiming a completion date of August 2015. Such is the problem with researching some of these article.
One of the questions I have about writing articles for rail stations is about citation standards. I could raise the same question about descriptions of highways. See Houston#Roadways, second paragraph. I see unsourced write-ups describing freeways, but I don't see that content being tagged. The unsourced articles describing transit stations are all tagged. For example, see Northline Transit Center. Cheers, Oldsanfelipe (talk) 11:30, 1 July 2018 (UTC)
@Oldsanfelipe: 1. It was started on November 7, 2006. User:Postoak seems to have created it. His last edit so far as in February of this year
2. Yeah, much of the issues often have to deal with conflicting sources. That's why I use {{Asof|}} to show that facts and figures were stated as of that date, and or using the wording "... is/was scheduled to..."
3. I haven't worked on rail projects that much, but for general subjects the main question is "is it likely to be challenged?" - If you think someone may dispute the figure or may really want a source for the info, it's better to cite it. In reality I believe about 90% of what I contribute has a citation.
WhisperToMe (talk) 11:59, 1 July 2018 (UTC)
@WhisperToMe: 1. I had listed my name at WikiProject Houston about three or four years ago, when the group still seemed to be active. I removed my identity from the list after not being contacted for an extended period of time. I made a few other postings to the project page with no response. Now I realize that other WikiProjects are the same way: they do not contact the newbies. This is something I should bring up to the WikiProjects. It's not a project without collaboration, and people who are not able to collaborate with other in the group are not effectively a part of the project. That's a problem because these are missed opportunities: collaboration can create synergies.
2. Yes, I agree.
3. You have been around much longer, but I am just now starting to appreciate various interpretations of verifiability and citing sources. I edit mostly historical articles, so, aside from the lede, I only write when I provide or re-purpose a citation. Every statement is backed up with a source, though I do not provide a unique citation for every statement. For a paragraph with statements a,b,c,d,e and inline citation C1, I will typically write a,b,c,d,eC1, where C1 supports all five statements, sometimes expressed as a small page range from a book. If I add to a paragraph, I might click through a citation in a paragraph with a,b,d,eC1, find support for new material, then I add c resulting in paragraph a,b,c,d,eC1. If I write statement c, which fits the middle of the narrative of the paragraph, but not supported by C1, I amend the paragraph to a,bC1,cC2,d,eC1. Often I have seen editors (and too often at Houston in the past) amend a paragraph a,b,d,eC1 without a new citation and without support from the existing citation to a,b,c,d,eC1. This creates a deception, even if unintentional, that c is supported by C1. I now revert edits like this if I cannot find support from the source referred to by the citation. None of this addresses the interpretation of you and many other experienced editors who cite verifiability in principle rather than verifiability in fact. I fall hard on the verifiability in fact because it's required for the content I typically write. Anything historical can be challenged. I am experiencing cognitive dissonance based on transportation articles, where perhaps some descriptions of the infrastructure are obvious. Cheers, Oldsanfelipe (talk) 13:31, 1 July 2018 (UTC)
@Oldsanfelipe: I agree that new editors need to be auto-greeted/notified. Perhaps it's something to bring up to the Wikipedia:WikiProject Council?
Yep, 3. is one of the greatest issues with Wikipedia. A lot of people don't understand that they need a new ref, and the editing system doesn't tell them this! In my experience that stuff is unintentional. "Anything historical can be challenged." is definitely true; when I write history articles I cite just about everything.
WhisperToMe (talk) 14:23, 1 July 2018 (UTC)
WhisperToMe: Do you agree that WikiProjects Houston is inactive or semi-active? Do you agree that Houston-related articles would benefit if WikiProjects Houston were more active? Is that something you are willing to organize? If not, do you think PostOak would come back, or is there another experienced editor who would do a good job? I would like to learn a bit more about the history before I approach the WikiProject Council. Cheers, Oldsanfelipe (talk) 16:03, 7 July 2018 (UTC)
@Oldsanfelipe: I would say between "inactive" and "semi-active". The collaboration part is inactive, but the principals are still editing Houston-related articles on Wikipedia. I'd have to talk to Postoak and see what kinds of goals we'd have. I think a lot of the efforts were on building the content of Houston-related articles. I suppose doing post-Harvey updates could be a new collaboration idea. WhisperToMe (talk) 16:10, 7 July 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for the quick response. Post-Harvey is a great idea. You and some other editors are capable of writing a good article even without help. I am thinking about building editing capacity. There are many Houston-related articles which could use improvement. Are there less experienced editors who can be a part of that process by improving their skills? I include myself in this later category, though I am moving toward competence. The assessment system could be a tool for improving Houston-related articles and the skills of people who are interested in Houston-related content. Just collaborating on proofreading and copy editing would be helpful to many editors. Again, I am one who would benefit from the help. But I also think I could help with assessments. Certainly people find ways to collaborate in a more organic way: that's generally how Wikipedia works. But making the project active might multiply the number of collaborations on Houston-related content. Oldsanfelipe (talk) 16:48, 7 July 2018 (UTC)
@Oldsanfelipe: Good question! I'd have to check recent changes in Houston-related articles to see if there are new editors who are interested in improving content. Holding some in-person edit-a-thons could be a useful tool to recruit editors; I am currently in Shenzhen, China, and I help Wikimedia Hong Kong User Group with their new editor tutorials. I'll be in Houston in August of this year and if it's something feasible I could help with one in Houston (until August 26, when I fly back to China). WhisperToMe (talk) 16:59, 7 July 2018 (UTC)

a little help for Coreca and his History[edit]

Good morning Justin, I write to greet you and know how are you, I'm pretty good for now, working for my cultural tourism association. I am writing to ask you a favor, that is to dedicate a little of your precious time to reassume the history of my little village. I ask you to give a shot and refreshed article that is about to improve hour by hour, day after day. Thank you once again for what you did, do and do for me. a greeting from Calabria and see you soon!--Luigi Salvatore Vadacchino (talk) 05:42, 12 July 2018 (UTC)

@Luigi Salvatore Vadacchino: Hi! I went ahead and did some fixes of the English! Having said that it will be important that you find sources that confirm the information in the article. Since you know Italian it may be easier for you to do that than me. If you are citing a source in Italian it may help to quote a portion of what you are citing within the citation. Thanks!

File:Roadtowhereposter.png[edit]

Hi, I'm RonBot, a script that checks new non-free file uploads. I have found that the subject image that you recently uploaded was more than 5% in excess of the Non-free content guideline size of 100,000 pixels. I have tagged the image for a standard reduction, which (for jpg/gif/png/svg files) normally happens within a day. Please check the reduced image, and make sure that the image is not excessively corrupted. Other files will be added to Category:Wikipedia non-free file size reduction requests for manual processing. There is a full seven-day period before the original oversized image will be hidden; during that time you might want to consider editing the original image yourself (perhaps an initial crop to allow a smaller reduction or none at all). A formula for calculation the desired size can be found at WP:Image resolution, along with instructions on how to tag the image in the rare cases that it requires an oversized image (typically about 0.2% of non-free uploads are tagged as necessarily oversized). Please contact the bot owner if you have any questions, or you can ask them at Wikipedia talk:Non-free content. RonBot (talk) 17:17, 13 July 2018 (UTC)

Hi, dearest WhisperToMe, how are you? Here there's tooooo hot!

I put a new reference in this page, and I ask only to read it, please, because I want it is put in correct form, and not to seem racist, because I'm not!!!!

Thanks a lot for your great help!!!

Rei Momo (talk) 06:45, 31 July 2018 (UTC)

@Rei Momo: Thanks for the tip! In this case it's fine to call him black as the Brazilian and Spanish newspapers do so. In the United States "colored" comes across as being a very old-fashioned way of referring to black people (although "people of color" is still used to collectively refer to all people who are not non-Hispanic/Latino White people). The word "colored" still appears in the names of some older organizations such as the NAACP. In South Africa "Coloured" refers to people from mixed racial backgrounds, a different racial category from pure black. WhisperToMe (talk) 12:36, 31 July 2018 (UTC)

Articles in Draft space[edit]

Hello,

I am active on Romanian Wikipedia and on Commons, but I don't know well the particular guidelines of English Wikipedia.
Romanian Wikipedia has started a project to translate some articles into English, a project addressed to university students. They have chosen one of our proposed topics, which we know how an article should be on Wikipedia. Although I explained how to post the translated article, in both cases that have been posted so far, these articles have reached the draft namespace, like this. Is it a common fact for a new user first article? What should be done to prevent this from happening?

Another question is if I have the right to move this article to the articles namespace, with the title Siege of Temeşvar (1716). I read the Wikipedia:Drafts guideline, but there is talk about moving articles to the "Draft"" namespace, or I want the other way around. You can tell me what to do? Thanks. --Turbojet (talk) 05:10, 3 August 2018 (UTC)

@Turbojet: Hi! It's just fine for them to use the draft space! When the article's ready it can be moved to the mainspace. As for moving articles, you have the right to move an article from the draft space to the mainspace if/when it's finished/has all of the notability issues worked out. My understanding is that some people choose to move an article from the main space to the draft space if they realize it's not finished and want to work on it some more, but that should only be done if the person moving it/working on it was the only person to have edited the article. WhisperToMe (talk) 05:16, 3 August 2018 (UTC)
I will move the article, it is finished and the person who posted it still does not know how to use Wikipedia. I understand that the article arrived in the Draft namespace without his will, that's the problem. Thank you very much. --Turbojet (talk) 05:24, 3 August 2018 (UTC)

Letter from Wikimedia User Group Hong Kong[edit]

Dear WhisperToMe,

Thank you for your interest in our user group. We have started the process to request for recognition of the WMF. However, the Affiliations Committee consider that our name is not following their guidelines and ask for renaming. A member of the user group put forward a motion to choose a new name for the group with three options provided. You are welcome to endorse or discuss this motion on Meta (link.) We look forward to your reply.

Yours sincerely,

Renaming of Wikimedia User Group Hong Kong[edit]

Dear WhisperToMe :

You are receiving this email as you have signed up as an interested member of the Wikimedia User Group Hong Kong, and is active at the English Wikipedia.

This message is sent on behalf of group Liasons of the User Group.

As the mission of the group has been successfully amended, and Liasons elected, the Liasons to affcom have now sent an email to Affcom seeking recognition. However, during the process (which is delayed by the hosting of Wikimania), we have been requested by them Affcom to amend the name of the usergroup (which subsequently mean a change of text of logo as well) as our name did not meet their guidelines.

To resolve this problem, one of the liasons, 1233, has started a discussion on the group's meta talk page(meta) to amend the name of the User Group according to the email received about the recognition of the group. We would hope for more input so as to obtain consensus on this matter and resolve this situation. The discussion will end at 00:00, 1 September (HKT, UTC+8).

In order to speed up the process, we would assume you having no preference if no reply is received on meta.

Many thanks,
1233 (on behalf of the Liasons)

Moving templates[edit]

Hi, in April you moved the page Template:General Growth Properties to Template:GGP Inc., but you left behind two sub-pages (/doc and /sandbox).

The template has been moved again to Template:Brookfield Properties Retail Group. If you try the Move option, you will see that the options include

  • Move associated talk page
  • Leave a redirect behind
  • Move subpages (up to 100)
  • Watch source page and target page

The first two are ticked by default, but the other two are not. When moving a template like this, you should normally tick the option to move the subpages. Note that the Move page lists any subpages that would be moved if you do tick that option.

I hope this is helpful. Best wishes – Fayenatic London 09:32, 11 September 2018 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Kusoge[edit]

Notice

The article Kusoge has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

WP:DICDEF.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

File:Bread (1986 film).png[edit]

Hi, I'm RonBot, a script that checks new non-free file uploads. I have found that the subject image that you recently uploaded was more than 5% in excess of the Non-free content guideline size of 100,000 pixels. I have tagged the image for a standard reduction, which (for jpg/gif/png/svg files) normally happens within a day. Please check the reduced image, and make sure that the image is not excessively corrupted. Other files will be added to Category:Wikipedia non-free file size reduction requests for manual processing. There is a full seven-day period before the original oversized image will be hidden; during that time you might want to consider editing the original image yourself (perhaps an initial crop to allow a smaller reduction or none at all). A formula for calculation the desired size can be found at WP:Image resolution, along with instructions on how to tag the image in the rare cases that it requires an oversized image (typically about 0.2% of non-free uploads are tagged as necessarily oversized). Please contact the bot owner if you have any questions, or you can ask them at Wikipedia talk:Non-free content. RonBot (talk) 17:11, 28 September 2018 (UTC)

St Olave's Grammar School:Push-pin map[edit]

In this case I don't find the map selection helpful. It would be marginally less disruptive if the Greater London Map was the default. The map is over prominent- and barely relates to the article. Olaves has limited contact with LBB- but sees itself as a London institution, the UK map is superfluous for London. The amount of map selection text is huge in comparison with the essential items in the Infobox. Maybe the insert map template could be rewritten within hide brackets or the mapsize reduced to 40%. --ClemRutter (talk) 09:26, 1 October 2018 (UTC)

  • @ClemRutter: I think the proposed rewrite is a good idea! Maybe it can be discussed on the template talk page? WhisperToMe (talk) 10:41, 3 October 2018 (UTC)

Chinese Naming[edit]

Re this edit Saw your message earlier. I saw from your user page that you lived in Shenzhen and were active in the WPHK before I reversed the edit. My argument is that, since Simp is not used in HK, there really is no reason to add it to pages that are purely HK-specific pages, just like I would argue there was no reason for adding Trad to pages that were about China-specific topics (it's a bit different for things that predate the invention of Simp, for obvious reasons). I feel it's misleading by adding it to the page since it's not an accepted usage, or one that people can expect to encounter, in that context. Wikipedia not being a dictionary, it doesn't seem to me to be relevant. I checked the Chinese Naming Conventions page and discussion, and it seems that there isn't any clear guideline on this as yet, so I'd be keen to hear if you have a different take on it. --Kdm852 (talk) 07:51, 3 October 2018 (UTC)
  • @Kdm852: Thanks for the response! I agree it would be a good idea to open a line of inquiry about it. One concern of mine is that many non-Chinese confuse the Trad and Simp characters, so even though Wikipedia isn't a dictionary, I still think it's good for clarification purposes. Secondly, while HK locals dont use Traditional characters (the only times I've seen them on the MTR was on the East Rail Line to the border) Mainlanders do sometimes use Trad characters to make a location or place seem fancy (like using cursive in English). Anyhow I'm happy to open a discussion on this issue! WhisperToMe (talk) 10:47, 3 October 2018 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:RogersTHSchoolLogo.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:RogersTHSchoolLogo.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Houston & Harris county NRHP list-articles[edit]

Hi, I saw your note at User:RJN's talk page about possibly re-starting a Houston WikiProject, and mentioning User:Oldsanfelipe (pinging by this note). By the way IMHO from watching city-level wikiprojects elsewhere, I would hope you might try to enliven WikiProject Texas instead, and discuss Houston stuff all you like there. But good luck either way.

Hey y'all might be interested in contributing to discussion at Talk:National Register of Historic Places listings in Harris County, Texas#Split about how to divide Houston and Harris County for purposes of NRHP lists. Seem to be at a consensus for having four lists; local views on article naming or any last-minute changes would be welcomed. --Doncram (talk) 21:05, 19 October 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for the notice! I went and left comments. As per the Houston WikiProject, at this stage I wouldn't mind if it was integrated into WP Texas as a task force of some kind. Nowadays there's a lot less traffic in regards to these regional projects. @Doncram: WhisperToMe (talk) 23:22, 19 October 2018 (UTC)
@Doncram: Thanks for the note. User:WhisperToMe has said that he wants to do meetups, but I have no plans to participate in those. I personally would not find those helpful, though I am sure many other editors would. Independent of the merits of meetups, where I see the possibility of generating interest in the WikiProjects and for improving the work is through the assessment process. Doncram and WhisperToMe, what do y'all think of that idea? Oldsanfelipe (talk) 09:40, 20 October 2018 (UTC)
@Oldsanfelipe: While assessment is important I think it's something to be done after people are engaged in a WikiProject. Most people reading Wikipedia don't read the talk pages, and therefore don't read the assessments. IMO the best way to grow a WikiProject is to make WikiProjects more visible to newbies. Sadly I feel our hands are tied with that as Wikipedia-referencing is limited in the article spaces themselves. WhisperToMe (talk) 17:29, 20 October 2018 (UTC)
User:WhisperToMe, Thanks for engaging me in this discussion. I am sure that you know much about the workings of the WikiProjects that I cannot imagine. However, I think you are overweighting the goal of recruiting new editors. Sometimes the answer is both and all of the above. I have two analogies that are somewhat dissimilar to the WikiProject situation, but similar enough in certain aspects to be helpful as explanations. One is voter registration versus get out the vote. Obviously, you can only vote if you are registered, so voter registration drives are necessary. Yet you cannot ignore registered voters just because they have voted in the past, therefore, there are get out the vote campaigns. You need to register voters, but you need to serve people who have already voted. The second analogy is a poorly frequented restaurant. Advertising for new business is probably necessary, but ultimately fruitless without giving good service. You cannot wait for new business to provide good service. You must serve current customers. WikiProject Houston has some active editors who have signed up for the project, but not (as far as I can tell) receiving any support from the project. There are other editors, who like me, are creating and editing articles under the scope of the project, but without project support. You cannot assume that because people have voted before that they will vote in the next election. A few customers in a restaurant cannot sustain you, but you still need to take their orders. They could also turn out to be people who will refer new clientele. Finding new editors will not help if the project page is three years out of date and nobody is monitoring the project's talk page, for example. I signed up for the project three or four years ago and requested assessments. After never receiving a response from the project, I removed my name from the list. Am I the only editor to give up on the project after being ignored? Oldsanfelipe (talk) 09:06, 21 October 2018 (UTC)
@Oldsanfelipe: Despite being here for a long time I've never done assessments. I've focused solely on article creation.
I think much of what's happened is that a lot of the previous WikiProject Houston posters have gotten busy, grown up, and gotten new jobs/marriages to worry about. There just aren't a ton of people watching the talk page. If you're referring to this Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Houston#Assessing_articles - I don't think there is/was one. You just find one of the contacts and ask him/her to help you. I probably should have paid more attention to the project page, but I got busy with other stuff. If you want, show me some articles you want me to assess and I can have a stab at it.
WhisperToMe (talk) 09:56, 21 October 2018 (UTC)
WhisperToMe My point is not: I cannot get my pages assessed, therefore I will be satisfied if my pages are assessed. My point is that page assessment is one of several important WikiProject functions, and one I was offering to help with. I also imagined, based on the number of requests for assessments across all projects, that there is demand for such an initiative. On another note, it would be difficult to reactivate the project without some kind of cooperation and counsel from the previous administrators of the project. This does not appear to be forthcoming. I just tagged the page as inactive. It's overdue. Oldsanfelipe (talk) 10:50, 21 October 2018 (UTC)
@Oldsanfelipe: Thanks for doing that! I honestly don't know who the assessors of pages were. I may as well seek to have it folded into the WikiProject Texas/US family of WikiProjects. WhisperToMe (talk) 11:00, 21 October 2018 (UTC)
WhisperToMe, I wouldn't need to consult with the previous page assessors. I can assess pages stub through b-class. That's the easy part. I would expect that anyone reviving the project would take advice from the editors who created and edited the templates. Also, they would want to pick their brains about general matters. It's smart to try to access institutional memory. But it appears that nobody wants to step into those roles. It sounds like you want to make it into a task force of WikiProject Texas. I guess that will happen. Oldsanfelipe (talk) 11:46, 21 October 2018 (UTC)
@Oldsanfelipe: I'd like to get the institutional memory and advice of the old timers too, but a lot just seem to have moved on. User:Postoak (who seems to be the guy who started this project) blanked his userpage last February. If you'd like I could try e-mailing some of them just in a last-ditch attempt to see if they're up for reviving it as a standalone project. Remember though that making this a task force means it's still going on, just with less administrative load. Wikipedia:WikiProject_Council/Guide/Task_forces#Converting_existing_projects_to_task_forces talks about the process of converting a project into a task force. BTW I found User:Brianreading is still active so I reached out to him. WhisperToMe (talk) 13:24, 21 October 2018 (UTC)
I responded on my talk page. I think we should reactivate the project. We still have many long-term editors that can help, including yourself. Postoak (talk) 16:52, 21 October 2018 (UTC)
Great! @Oldsanfelipe: Postoak's (the creator) interested in reviving the project, so I'm holding off for now. WhisperToMe (talk) 22:50, 21 October 2018 (UTC)
Good. I would like to see this work. Oldsanfelipe (talk) 23:11, 21 October 2018 (UTC)

Choice Hotels article improvements[edit]

Hello, WhisperToMe! I've been working with Choice Hotels to propose improvements for the company's Wikipedia article. I've saved a draft article here and, as always, disclosed my conflict of interest on the article's talk page (Talk:Choice Hotels). You helped me with the Hilton Worldwide article before, and since no one has responded to my first edit request or note at WikiProject Hotels, I thought I'd reach out to you directly to see if you'd be willing to assist.

For my first request, I'm suggesting a sourced "Founding and early history" section to replace the current section, which has no sources whatsoever. I'd like to think this is a pretty straightforward improvement, but I don't edit articles directly because of my COI, so I was wondering if you'd be willing to review and update the article on my behalf. If you're busy or not interested, that's fine. Please let me know if you have any questions. Inkian Jason (talk) 18:46, 25 October 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for your assistance. I've posted a request for the next section, if you're available to review. Inkian Jason (talk) 16:40, 29 October 2018 (UTC)
Hi again! Regardless of whether or not you're interested in reviewing the proposed content for the next section, would you mind revisiting Talk:Choice_Hotels#"Growth_and_expansion" when you have a moment? I'd appreciate your feedback on the "where?" tag (hopefully you received my email with article text) and adding the "Grant18" citation to the live article. Thank you! Inkian Jason (talk) 17:55, 5 November 2018 (UTC)
I updated my comment above. I found another editor to assist with the "Grant18" citation. The "where?" tag remains, and I've posted another request here for the "Recent history" section. Thanks! Inkian Jason (talk) 19:11, 13 November 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for this edit to the draft infobox. If you're available, I'm hoping you or Chetsford may be able to review Talk:Choice_Hotels#"Recent_history" and/or copy over the proposed infobox and introduction to the live article. Thanks again! Inkian Jason (talk) 19:45, 4 December 2018 (UTC)

Sorry, striking out part of a comment left while you were updating the article. I've outlined the remaining requests at the bottom of the talk page (addition of "Recent history" / removal of "Headquarters relocation", replacing "Loyalty program" with the proposed "See also" section", and a suggested category change and image addition). Thanks again for all your help! Inkian Jason (talk) 20:11, 4 December 2018 (UTC)

Infobox school cleanup discussion enquiry[edit]

Hi WhisperToMe, hope you're well and not sure if you remember me, but I'm sure you'll remember me from the TfD Infobox UK school merger discussion that we had a while back. The merger was a success which I'm sure you'll have noticed. During the merge discussion process, we produced an "after-merge ideas" section (now renamed to "Infobox cleanup" after revamping the entire section) on the Infobox school talk page with improvements to the infobox, such as merging and removing parameters. This is basically a full cleanup of the infobox and I was wondering if you'd be interested in joining in the discussion? There's already parameters listed which you'll just need to comment on if you agree or not to help build consensus and if there's anything you have you can just add to the relevant subsection. There will be a bot run once the discussion has finished that will go through all the transclusions. If you don't want to, that's ok and please let me know, thank you Steven (Editor) (talk) 20:52, 15 January 2019 (UTC)

About Preston Public School - there are many Prestons and many Public Schools...[edit]

Hi WhisperToMe,
I'm puzzled why you moved Preston School District (Oklahoma) to the article of that name.
There are many Prestons and many Public Schools
Quite frankly I think this picture on the prestonps website looks dodgy as all fuck.
You thoughts about this? Pete AU aka --Shirt58 (talk) 11:11, 19 January 2019 (UTC)

  • @Shirt58: Thanks for the heads up! While there are many Preston's and many public schools, I dont know of any others with the specific name "Preston Public School" (usually in the US the name is such and such "Elementary School"). Also I created the article at "Preston Public School" and created he later as s redirect. Anyhow I will check with the Oklahoma Department of Education to see if that's truly the official site.

Group precautions for events[edit]

Hi WhisperToMe, when you are working with groups of people, you may want to have them place a note about the event on their userpage or that they are working with you to help avoid confusion concerning sockpuppetry.

You may want to tell them about WP:VALIDALT as well so that they clearly mark any alternate accounts as the one below has not.

Consider drafting[edit]

Hi, in light of [[Winfield High School (Kansas) and my nominating it for deletion I think you should probably consider drawing up a draft with refs before you publish to avoid this happening again. Thanks SSSB (talk) 18:49, 20 April 2019 (UTC)

  • @SSSB:. Thank you for the suggestion! For many other subjects (especially one where I am not certain whether notability is possible - for-profit companies come to mind) I would. However in other cases, in which I feel notability is all but certain, I feel it is not necessary to do this. In my years of editing I have understood American comprehensive high schools are always notable and proof of existence is all that is needed for an article, regardless of de jure policies/guidelines (because the existence of the actual secondary sources to back them up is implied). It is best to only nominate for deletion if one feels the topic is not salvegeable at all. (for very small rural school districts it may be possible to consolidate the article, not because the school is not notable, but because the school and the school district are effectively the same thing)
  • One of the risks of unnecessarily nominating for deletion (though preferable to speedy deletions) is putting a user through doing more work than he/she could tolerate. As an experienced editor it's not as difficult for me, but for a 58-year old blue collar worker in Middle America this could make him quit Wikipedia in disgust. It is true that a lot of people are not educated on Wikimedia matters and what's acceptable, but when they see other comprehensive high schools in other parts of the US they understand that theirs should be there too.

Cantonese jyutping and Mandarin pinyin[edit]

Hello, I noticed a number of your edits in Hong Kong-related articles, and most of them involve adding the Mandarin pinyin and the Simplified Chinese name to the templates. It has come to my question if whether such is really necessary; not all subjects are expressed in simplified Chinese and Mandarin in Hong Kong, such as Wah Yan College, Kowloon and HKDSE. I wonder if there are any reasons why you have been adding it to various HK-related articles? Cheers. –Wefk423 (talk) 17:17, 29 April 2019 (UTC)

@Wefk423: Thanks for the notice! There had been a discussion on the matter of adding Simplified Chinese to Hong Kong articles at Wikipedia_talk:Manual_of_Style/China_and_Chinese-related_articles#Should_the_Chinese_infobox_display_both_Simplified_and_Traditional_Chinese_for_all_Greater_China_and/or_Sinosphere-related_subjects,_or_should_it_only_display_the_relevant_ones_per_territory/area? and the consensus was to include both Traditional and Simplified forms for all articles in the Chinese-speaking world. Among the justifications for this is that foreign readers tend to only learn Simplified Chinese, so such details are appreciated even in articles about places where the main writing variety is traditional Chinese.
In regards to Mandarin, it is becoming increasingly commonplace in Hong Kong since 1997 and the HK government is pursuing the "trilingual" aspect (meaning Hong Kongers are to learn Mandarin as a second language) of its education program. In addition foreign students of Chinese varieties tend to know Mandarin rather than Cantonese, especially nowadays. Based on this detail, Hong Kong-related articles, especially those related to post-1997 HK and the handover, should display Mandarin in the Chinese infobox, while making it clear Cantonese is the main variety.
In any event it is important to also show Cantonese for places in Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Zhuhai, etc. on the Mainland side.
WhisperToMe (talk) 17:26, 29 April 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for the quick reply and the explanation. Well, as a local, I can say Mandarin is indeed getting its popularity in Hong Kong, but not simplified Chinese. If I had noticed the discussion, I have to say I would be opposing to such idea. But anyways, the consensus is what matters. Good luck with the editings. Cheers. –Wefk423 (talk) 17:38, 29 April 2019 (UTC)
You're welcome! On that note I make sure articles about the Mainland also have Traditional Chinese versions noted down (as well as Malaysia/Singapore articles). The only place in HK that I see Simplified Chinese is on signage in and on the East Rail Line (because that line carries people from Shenzhen, where I live, into Hong Kong).

ArbCom 2019 special circular[edit]

Icon of a white exclamation mark within a black triangle
Administrators must secure their accounts

The Arbitration Committee may require a new RfA if your account is compromised.

View additional information

This message was sent to all administrators following a recent motion. Thank you for your attention. For the Arbitration Committee, Cameron11598 02:45, 4 May 2019 (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)

District navboxes[edit]

I'm not sure about the new navboxes. I think they could be useful, but there are a few issues:

  • There are probably too many articles for the navboxes to be manageable. I notice {{Tuen Mun District}} omits 39 of the 43 Light Rail stops – does the navbox have inclusion criteria other than "in the district"?
  • The district boundaries can and do change between District Council elections – for example, Victoria Park and most of Tin Hau were transferred from Eastern District to Wan Chai District for the 2015 election.
  • The district boundaries do not necessarily reflect geographical or social reality, and it might be better to create navboxes focused on localities instead. Jc86035 (talk) 11:52, 6 May 2019 (UTC)
@Jc86035: Thanks for the notice!
1. The main criteria for the New Territories templates is "in the district". However my idea is that for much of Hong Kong Island and/or Kowloon the "district navboxes" should only include localities and possibly a list of secondary schools in the region, as many areas are so "dense" with Wikipedia-notable sites that they would be too big if you tried to include everything. I am aware that not all the light rail stops in Yuen Long District are there yet, but I didn't have a chance to add them yet.
2. Oh... I wasn't aware of district boundaries changes like that. I saw that the last new district formed was circa 1994 so I assumed the last change was at that point.
3. For reasons above I am very much interested in making navboxes on denser localities - like Central, Wan Chai, (especially those two!) I wished to use district-based navboxes mainly in less dense areas such as in the New Territories.

Navboxes[edit]

Hello! Thanks for adding geography navigation templates to various articles. However, navigation templates should only be added when the article appears within, so for example, Rich's Houston should be mentioned in the Midtown template, and ideally the article's prose would confirm the venue is located in Midtown. Does this make sense? ---Another Believer (Talk) 17:02, 10 May 2019 (UTC)

@Another Believer: Thanks for the feedback! In Midtown, Houston I'll add the venue to a section in the article, and in the venue article I'll cite the street address and a map of Midtown. Anyway some nav boxes are comprehensive, so sometimes items may be listed in a particular daughter article and not necessarily the main article (this doesn't apply to Rich's and Midtown, though).

Hermann Park[edit]

Thanks for your feedback on Houston neighborhoods and boundaries. I was just trying to organize some of the Houston sites I've seen by neighborhood, but I've abandoned my effort since the neighborhoods are not strictly defined... too confusing around Montrose, Museum District, etc. Oh well! In other news, I consider Hermann Park one of the city's jewels, and I'm hoping to make some improvements to the Wikipedia article. I also want to create some new stubs for features, such as the Japanese Garden, railroad, etc. If you're interested to help out, you're more than welcome! Happy editing, ---Another Believer (Talk) 16:09, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

@Another Believer: The good news is that I already made navigation templates for the Museum District and Montrose (as Neartown). If you want to write categories, just add everything I've put in the navigation templates. When there is no single set of boundaries at all, I check which sites the Houston Chronicle consistently says are in the "Museum District" and categorize those as in the Museum District (after all a reliable source is defining something as being in the Museum District). When there are multiple agencies with different boundaries, include stuff in both and/or explain what is in what boundary. WhisperToMe (talk) 16:18, 21 May 2019 (UTC)
@Another Believer: Started cats for Category:Midtown, Houston (as the management district and super neighborhood boundaries mostly coincide), Category:Houston Heights (there are multiple maps of the Houston Heights proper, which doesn't exactly align with SN 15 Greater Heights), Category:Neartown Houston (Neartown/Montrose super neighborhood mostly coincides with Neartown Association (2008/2018 Neartown association map is slightly different) ), and Category:East End, Houston (management district map, coincides with multiple super neighborhoods).

Transclude lead excerpt[edit]

Hello. I see you've added a tip to Template:Transclude lead excerpt/doc. Have you found a problem when extracting the entire lead using {{Transclude lead excerpt}}? It runs the same module code as {{Transclude random excerpt}}; the two template names are just for ease of use. Both templates pick one article from the given list at random; the only difference is that in the first case the user supplies a list with only one item to choose from! Certes (talk) 00:18, 24 May 2019 (UTC)

@Certes: Hi! I added "Transclude random excerpt" because I was told to use that for transcribing the lead regardless of size, and because I was previously unaware of that template and felt it would be good for casual readers of Template:Transclude lead excerpt/doc to be aware of its existence. If they both use the same code anyway I agree that should be clarified in the documentation. WhisperToMe (talk) 00:29, 24 May 2019 (UTC)
Done, thanks. "Transclude random excerpt" will also do the job but it might confuse someone who notices that it doesn't behave randomly in this case and wonders why you might have wanted it to. Certes (talk) 00:51, 24 May 2019 (UTC)

Summersville School District 79 moved to draftspace[edit]

An article you recently created, Summersville School District 79, does not have enough sources and citations as written to remain published. It needs more citations from reliable, independent sources. (?) Information that can't be referenced should be removed (verifiability is of central importance on Wikipedia). I've moved your draft to draftspace (with a prefix of "Draft:" before the article title) where you can incubate the article with minimal disruption. When you feel the article meets Wikipedia's general notability guideline and thus is ready for mainspace, please click on the "Submit your draft for review!" button at the top of the page.

Page Mikhael (film) - Critical reception section was poorly cited and written[edit]

I was reading that article and thought of removing ref flag and copyedit flag. The page Critical reception section is negatively written and poorly cited, earlier one content is cited by facebook report that can be seen in History logs. Per my knowledge, adding social media reports is grave violation of wiki policies. I added reference to Director, Producer, Song Composer and Movie duration etc. Also rewritten the Critical reception section. Also added the dates in references which was not added earlier.

misuse of |publisher= parameter in citation templates[edit]

If you are still writing cs1|2 templates like this from Klein Forest High School (this edit):

{{cite web|author=Blanchard, Sarah|url=http://www.chron.com/neighborhood/spring/news/article/Rezoning-plans-continue-for-Klein-ISD-6700334.php|title=Rezoning plans continue for Klein ISD|publisher=''[[The Spring Observer]]'' at the ''[[Houston Chronicle]]''|date=2015-12-15|accessdate=2017-04-18}}
Blanchard, Sarah (2015-12-15). "Rezoning plans continue for Klein ISD". The Spring Observer at the Houston Chronicle. Retrieved 2017-04-18. Italic or bold markup not allowed in: |publisher= (help)

and like this from Lord of Formosa (this edit):

and like this from Leflore County School District (this edit):

then please stop.

In the first example, it isn't clear to me what The Spring Observer is but it appears to be a division of, or a department of , or perhaps a subsumed competitor of Houston Chronicle. In the second, there is a website with the name 'Asian Review of Books' but that string of text does not appear in the review at the South China Morning Post. In the last example, as a news agency, 'Associated Press' belongs in |agency=.

A few more points:

  • all of the example citations are news sources so {{cite news}} is to be preferred over {{cite web}}
  • all cs1|2 templates produce metadata. The documentation for all of these templates has this:
    Do not include Wiki markup '' (italic font) or ''' (bold font) because these
