User page semi-protection request

May I have User:MathXplore/QD log/202210 semi-protected? An IP user appeared here but I don't think any IP user would need to change this place. MathXplore (talk) 09:00, 2 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Just in case anyone was wondering, I've been trying to keep on top of closing RFDs, but there are a few I'm not closing because I commented on them. Someone else should do those. -- Auntof6 (talk) 18:00, 4 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Page protection of Surendra Singh Gour

Nude photography

A commons user have requested for the last picture in the gallery to be removed. Should we oblige? --Trade (talk) 21:21, 8 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

'with this photo I am threatened by spreading them everywhere with hate messages.' Sounds serious--Trade (talk) 21:24, 8 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Trade: Do you mean the request to remove the photo from Commons? As long as it is still in Commons, we can use it here. The photo illustrates exactly what the article is about, so there's no reason to remove it. If it gets removed from Commons, they will remove all uses of it in Wikipedias. Wikipedia is not censored, after all. -- Auntof6 (talk) 21:43, 8 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Don't think Wikipedia:NOTCENSORED applies if he never consented to the image being uploded here Trade (talk) 21:45, 8 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Trade: If that's the issue, it needs to be resolved at Commons. If they determine that the image should be removed, then it will be removed here. You can join the discussion on Commons if you like. -- Auntof6 (talk) 21:50, 8 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Shortdescription on Template:Bot

Should the use of {{Short description}} be removed from {{Bot}}? That template is generating most of the transclusions of {{Short description}}. Lights and freedom (talk) 23:51, 12 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

done. It seems the edits were made by copying the bot template over from enwiki. I don't see why that was done,as it only made the bot template more complex and added the short description to loads of pages. Thanks for letting us know. --Ferien (talk) 23:58, 12 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Research Project: Plain English Questions For You

Hello! I am a master's student working on a project regarding the use of Plain Language, which I believe is a similar concept to Simple English. As the people behind this offering I am wondering if I could ask some questions to someone on this forum regarding Simple English, if you have any statistics on the usage of the Simple English Wikipedia, and how the process goes for translating a page into Simple English.

If this is another forum or channel you'd like me to direct my questions to, or other contacts in the Simple English space please let me know.

If you'd be open to answering some of my questions, I posted some exact questions on on my talk channel and we can discuss there. Thank you for your help :)

Dexter's Laboratory

Dexter's Laboratory has been getting constant attention from IPs. They tend to be adding a large amount of off topic and/or unsourced information. Ive reverted and/or cleaned up the article multiple times in the last few days. While not unmanageable, if no one was watching it and pruning constantly, it would get out of hand.

Quick deletion review needed

Folkloristic anthropology was put up for quick deletion G7. The request was declined with the reason given as "original author did not write most of what was on the page before blanking"

There have been 2 editors. The first was the creator. the page was created at 7180 by that person. Another editor added 3 tags to the page (simplify, more sources and cleanup needed) and headers and moved the page to the proper title. (total size now 7389). OP then blanked 6958 of the content (pretty much all of what they put up) The other editor then tagged it as qd-g7. This was denied saying the OP who added 7180 of 7389 did not write most of it. The only thing on the page is 3 tags, an empty reference section and an external sites section with a link to example. G7, no content and test edit could all be valid reasons but as it has been denied, this needs upper level attention to deal with it (and the redirect what was created in the move) Pure Evil (talk) 06:57, 6 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

WP:QD#G7 says "only if most of the page was written by that author and was created as a mistake". I don't think the page was created as a mistake. I do apologize for misinterpreting the edit reason "add sections", though: I was thinking it meant that sections of text were added, when it was really just section headings. (That's what I get for not paying attention to the character count.) If another admin wants to delete, I won't protest although I think it was not created as a mistake. -- Auntof6 (talk) 07:07, 6 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Its done, you can see Nalanidil (talk) 13:23, 7 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply] (talk · contribs · WHOIS) has an extended history of questionable editing to Lists of television programs by XXX articles. Their talk page shows a long history of warnings they have been given. They also have a prior 1 week block for abusing multiple accounts. Currently, I am dealing with them on List of Nickelodeon Animation Studio productions where I am going through item by item and trying to weed out the false info. The IP has a habit of reverting these edits or just readding things. These actions are adding false information as I am removing programs that are not NAS productions only to have him re-add them. Some of his most recent edits were valid typo cleanups but the also include adding Kappa Mikey which is broadcast on Nick, but wasn't produced by it (let alone created by NAS) If his actions are this bad here, what is being done to other articles. I have enough of a problem clearing existing damage and the base articles linked in ( a host are attribbed to Canada when the en. infobox shows no connection to Canada so I also have the clean up those articles to make sure we have the correct info on the list)

There is also the issue that if they are getting 4-5 warnings a month for the last year, how many of his edits either slipped through or were reverted without a warning? Pure Evil (talk) 23:27, 7 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • added note. The IP is currently sitting out a one year block on en. for disruptive editing. Their editing is reminiscent of the Disney IP LTA vandal that was here in the past.

Hi everyone. The original code for movie redirects (previously discussed here) has been lost and needs to be remade. It's been about two and a half years since then, which is a really long time!

Dear IP, this is a Wikipedia, where anyone can edit. It is clear that the articles will reflect the views of those who edited them. If a particular article shows a bias,so that it no longer represent a neutral view, it can be flagged (with {{NPOV}}. I invite you to flag articles which show this bias, so that they can be fixed. As to my personal political ideas: they are irrelevant, as we are creating a wikipedia, and an article with a lot of bias hopefully won't stay that way for long. I again invite you to create an account, and edit here; anger/hatred and vctim blaiming don't serve us in the long run. Eptalon (talk) 18:08, 18 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Questions from Koqkpa at User talk:MathXplore

It might be needless to mention that I welcome everyone to my talk page if their messages are constructive enough and helpful for the project, or otherwise provide assistance to me, but I strongly doubt the quality of the questions from Koqkpa to here. The things that generated my concern is

I can hardly understand the question intent for these as a Wikipedian, and I cannot imagine how these things will lead to a helpful conversation for the encyclopedia. How can these be justified or needed? Maybe its too fast to label as extraordinary trolling or activate WP:ONESTRIKE, but how much should we offer free Q&A social networking services for Koqkpa? MathXplore (talk) 16:32, 17 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It is perhaps worth noting that I sanitized Koqpa's user page a few days ago, as they were quite liberal as to the information they shared with the wiki. I also left a message on their talk page. And to answer the question: yes, probably a few wiipedians know me, but I don't think it matters. Eptalon (talk) 18:44, 17 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
This User@Koqkpa, also reverted what I have written on the simple talk page, but then changend it back. Everyone can see if they have a Look on the Simple Talk page. I have no idea what that should be Nalanidil (talk) 18:51, 17 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I didn't check that. We must be sure about how and how not to use talk pages. MathXplore (talk) 06:34, 18 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
This case seems to be answered at Koqkpa's talk page. MathXplore (talk) 06:38, 18 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hello Eptalon, thank you for taking care of the user page incident. We must make sure that this is an online encyclopedia, and user page features are just a part of the project. MathXplore (talk) 06:33, 18 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
While the questions aren't the sort of questions I would go around asking users, I don't think it's trolling and newer users ask a lot more questions than users who have been around for a while, even if they are less related to the project. Most importantly, I would strongly discourage any other administrator from blocking Koqkpa under the ONESTRIKE policy, as Koqkpa has done a lot of good work here and has massively improved since his enwiki block. --Ferien (talk) 22:12, 17 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I generally agree to you evaluations, but I did not see those improvements brought to my user talk page. The most doubtful thing (special:diff/8590860) just appeared recently and that is why I brought this agenda to the noticeboard. MathXplore (talk) 06:37, 18 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
1,000 edits is a milestone that you are told about through notifications, and is a pretty big number. Perhaps he just wanted to tell someone about it. I don't think it alone shows that Koqkpa is focused on edit count and not on building an encyclopedia. --Ferien (talk) 12:48, 18 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
(Non-administrator observation) I don't like involving in this matter, still. After checking their track record, it is clear that the user is quite not serious about the user talkbacks. If you refer to their enwiki talk page, he did even give threats about creating another account, which lead to TPA revoke. Maybe he is doing good contributions here but asking unnecessary questions all the time might be considered disturbing to them, for Math I don't know. I must recommend a strong warning for Koqkpa to avoid trolling and making him aware about the onestrike rule. Dibyojyotilet's chat 16:32, 20 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I think the onestrike rule is already recognized. I just wanted to give opportunities to focus on encyclopedic works instead the questions as above, so he/she can avoid wasting time on user talk pages. MathXplore (talk) 16:40, 20 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yeah I guess they are aware now. Perhaps a notice must be given to them of not wasting our time with trolling. Dibyojyotilet's chat 02:59, 21 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

President of Argentina-related articles

Some user/users have been constantly adding fake information onto Alberto Fernández's, Mauricio Macri's, President of Argentina's, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner's and Miguel Ángel Pichetto's articles.

The user continues to add fake information that Macri is the 'current' president of Argentina having assumed office in December 2023 (a year from now) and modifies Fernandez's infobox as being the former president (even though he's the incumbent president). Continued edits include making Kirchner a former VP (even though she's the incumbent VP) and Pichetto's infobox by listing him as the incumbent VP (assuming office one year from now).

These edits have been ongoing for a solid month, largely by unregistered user and @Marcos365:. They even go as far as to reverting my edits undoing their vandalism. Is there a way to protect these articles (mainly Fernandez and Macri) and having a more watchful eye on the rest? Some of these false information have been visually public for days.

The page was deleted per RFD, but it was recreated today. I would like to have a comparison and review with the former deleted versions. MathXplore (talk) 10:10, 23 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  •  Comment: The article has been renominated for deletion (2nd nom) but the user who created it keeps removing the RfD tag. The comparison may be able to get it QD as recreated RfD and bypass this issue. If so. salting may be in order as a casting director is not likely to ever be notable. Pure Evil (talk) 21:02, 23 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    Unfortunately, it is not able to be quick deleted as if an RfD gets no comments (as that 1st nom did) then it should be treated as a "soft delete". That being said, if the constant reversion of the RfD template continues then the article could be semi-protected for the remaining duration of the RfD. --Ferien (talk) 21:29, 23 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    The problem there is that the rules for a soft delete have been violated twice. One by the user as they must request it be undeleted, there is no statement in the rule that they can just recreate a similar article. No request was made. Also, the closing admin is supposed to annotate that it is a soft delete. Auntof6 did not do this. According to what the policy is, there is no indication that a soft delete was done. Also there is no clause in the en. soft delete policy that says a soft delete can not be quick deleted if it is in violation of a valid policy. I find it questionable to defend keeping something based on a policy that the article's existence is a violation of.. Using the rule being broken to defend what is breaking the rule... Pure Evil (talk) 00:21, 24 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    And currently, the user has removed the qd twice and the RfD 2x. 4 instances of removing a deletion tag should be enough to constitute "constant". Pure Evil (talk) 00:25, 24 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    Regarding soft delete: while process wasn't perfectly followed, a soft delete is basically a prod delete. As we have already gone through that one prod, we cannot delete again as that prod only allows us to delete the article once. By deleting this as G4 we would be going directly against what SOFTDELETE says, that soft deletes should be treated as prods. While the guideline on enwiki says that labelling it as a softdelete should be done, it isn't a requirement for a soft delete being a soft delete. It is very clearly a soft delete and IMO can be treated as such even if it was not labelled as one by Auntof6. Finally you warned the user after they reverted the rfd notice and now they have stopped. That's why I said if the reverting does continue it would be protected but from what we have seen so far your warning has stopped them so there is no need to protect the article anymore.--Ferien (talk) 00:44, 24 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    Are we reading the same policy? The one you linked to has no mention of the article being redeleted. There is nothing that a G4 quick delete could possibly violate. Soft delete states a few basic things. the article can be deleted, the article can be requested to be undeleted, the deletion should be marked as such. there is a second paragraph but it deals with redirecting the page in applicable which is not applicable in this case. Of those 3 steps, only one was followed. It was deleted. No request, no tagging. Not perfectly is a bit of an understatement. Not marginally would be an overstatement. Not at all would be more accurate.
    As to "we cannot delete again as that prod only allows us to delete the article once". that is completely wrong and violates the deletion policy. The entirety of g4 is all about redeleton after an RfD (not a prod... this is not en.) G4 would not apply if a discussion took place or it was created in the User space. Neither of these took place. This is entirely about an article that was deleted after an uncontested RfD being recreated in a similar form in the article space. this entire thing (the article, the refusal to follow policy, the rfD part 2, this discussion) is just wasting time that could be used to improve things...

  • Delete. Users must not be allowed to game the system when we have a consensus. Macdonald-ross (talk) 06:49, 26 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    When there aren't any comments, there's not really a consensus. We can avoid any possible "soft delete" results by having more people comment at RfD. --Ferien (talk) 20:24, 26 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    The lack of comments can be from complete consensus. There is often little reason to pile on the delete train if there is no opposition. If someone agrees with the delete reason and no one is opposed, little is achieved with a "me too" / "per nom" post. If nothing was said, take it as either agreement or the fact that it got overlooked/ ignored. Non oppose often equals agree / no opinion. Pure Evil (talk) 20:44, 26 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Tagged QD but an IP user wants to replace with RFD. How should we take care of this? MathXplore (talk) 16:31, 27 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

QD:A4 requires that it be uncontested. If it is contested, RfD is needed (or an admin going IAR). As the editor is pushing for RfD, that would indicate they are contesting the A4. Just ensure it is tagged properly for RfD (tagged, request page, add to RfD page) and move to the next issue. Pure Evil (talk) 17:18, 27 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@MathXplore @Pure Evil: I have declined the QD request because A4 does not apply to events such as parades. A4 applies only to "people, groups, companies, products, services or websites".
If anyone wants to go to RFD, that's fine. However, it isn't enough to just put an RFD template on the page -- an actual request page has to be created, and that page has to be added to the main RFD page. -- Auntof6 (talk) 18:30, 27 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Module needed

(sort of)

The template {{Pp-move-indef}} is generating a "Script error: No such module "Pp-move-indef" error. This is not a big deal as the template is only used on one page and it is in the User space. Unfortunately, the template is part of {{Protection templates}} so while it is not used, it is linked to on many pages. The pp-indef template also has an internal error showing on its own page. As it is not used, we may want to just remove it from the nav template and delete the pp-indef template as it is unused but that call is above my paygrade. Pure Evil (talk) 16:10, 28 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

We appear to have done the same change as en where the indef template actually isn't necessary anymore so I have gone ahead and redirected {{pp-move-indef}} to {{pp-move}}, and removed it from the nav template. --Ferien (talk) 23:24, 31 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Notice on closing RfDs...

As it's year end-again, let me point out that when an RfD is closed, the 'current year' will be taken for the default reason (generated for the RfD). Therefore, you'll manually have to the enter the reason when you close RfDs that started in 2022, in early 2023. Eptalon (talk) 12:05, 31 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I've gone through and added "|year=2022" to all our pages currently at RfD to avoid any problems getting from the page to the RfD page as we go into 2023. Happy New Year everyone! --Ferien (talk) 16:18, 31 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
We can also set up redirects from the /2023/ page (which is what the MW software will detect) to the /2022/ page (where the actual discussion took place). — *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 22:57, 31 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Fehufanga: We can, but that could cause conflicts if pages are recreated and nominated again for deletion in 2023. I wonder if it would be good to use the year parameter on all RFDs all the time. -- Auntof6 (talk) 23:03, 31 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
If we wanted to do that, it would be fairly easy to achieve. Looking at MediaWiki:Gadget-Twinkle.js, it appears just one line has to be changed if we want to add the year parameter. --Ferien (talk) 23:16, 31 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Ferien: That change isn't affecting the close reason when I go to close a request. We still have to do something manually. -- Auntof6 (talk) 01:27, 1 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Auntof6, yes, it only fixes the link between the article nominated for deletion and RfD so it doesn't come up with "please create a discussion page" on the article. Although another thing we could do to prevent extra work in the new year is have the RfD fill out the delete reason, like in the QD template. --Ferien (talk) 10:47, 1 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It's few months past, we have two requests already under pending for conclusion. It would be better if an admin/closing admin would keep an eye on this matter. @Elytrian last requested to close the request at the talk page on the 30 September 2022. Dibyojyotilet's chat 11:11, 3 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

DRC-B5, that message was posted in 2021. There is currently one request open, I have just closed the other as not successful. While the page states that Proposals run for three weeks., in reality, proposals run for quite a bit longer to allow for more comments. Sometimes, proposals will not even get a single comment in three weeks. Proposals are not closed simply because it has been three weeks since the discussion started, admins would usually wait a bit longer than that before closing. --Ferien (talk) 16:53, 3 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I tossed it up for RfD to make it harder on them. They can remove the tag all they want but it wont stop the RfD. A4 could still be applied though not everyone beleives it does so that gets tricky. Snow could still resolve the case quickly but it will eventually get to a decision without it. Salting may be in order if deletion is the result. As there is a good likelihood of sockpuppetry here, a CU may want to be standing by in case this becomes an issue later. Not fishing, just staying vigilant.
