Seaway 25

Hi, Fram! Thanks for noticing the copyvio problem at Seaway 25. I had a look at other contribs of the same editor and saw a good deal of stuff that rang vague alarm bells (this, for example), but nothing that I could verify to be problematic. If you happen to see any more bad edits from him/her, would you kindly let me know? Many thanks, regards, Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 20:20, 31 August 2021 (UTC)

Thanks. Yes, I think a lot of what they wrote is copied from offline sources (magazine articles), but I can't prove it without too much effort. Fram (talk) 06:56, 1 September 2021 (UTC)

Strange email I received from user Elijahandskip

Hello Fram.

Having had no prior interaction with this user, I received a strange email from them this afternoon. Here is the full text:


Wikipedia <wiki@wikimedia.org> Unsubscribe 3:54 PM (3 hours ago) to SPECIFICO

Hello. I wanted to discuss with you a comment you made in an edit summary on the "Biden–Ukraine conspiracy theory" article on August 22, 2021. You said "...when in fact they are unrelated to the Bidens..." which is extremely surprising since the title of the article actually says "Biden". Just by looking at the edit summary and not digging too deep into the article, I am questioning if you should continue to edit that article any further on Wikipedia. Trust me, I know how bad showing any political bias can be on Wikipedia. Heck, I fought admins tooth and nail and actually ended up having news articles put out about the big debate. But as a word of advice from an editor with less experience than you, but possibly more attention (Talking about the multiple news articles), try to keep your political bias out of editing and especially out of talk pages and edit summaries. It really does give a horrible vibe to others, even if it isn't indented.

I replied that this should be raised on the article talk page rather than email. Then I looked at their user talk page and saw that they are topic-banned from this article, presumably leading to the use of email. I see that @El C and Cullen328: and others have been inolved with this user's ban and subsequent violations of it. I'm just bringing this to your attention, in case you think any action is necessary. No need to respond, this is just FYI for you and those who've had some involvement with this editor. SPECIFICO talk 23:40, 1 September 2021 (UTC)

  • This appears to be connected to this and is another topic ban violation. Spartaz Humbug! 03:10, 2 September 2021 (UTC)
    • They succeeded in getting their topic ban extended on the very last day, which is a remarkable feat. Fram (talk) 07:27, 2 September 2021 (UTC)

British Rail Locomotive 02 003

Hello Fram, I see you have proposed for deletion my new article about 02 003 and other class 02 shunters, I have made several big changes to 02 003 and I'm here to ask if that's enough in your mind to avoid deletion, if so I'll do the same modifications to the other 2 articles if not tell me what else I can add, Thank You

Hi. I see that you added lots of unreliable or unacceptable sources, like Pinterest, Flickr, maps, a fandom wiki, ... None of these sources do anything to establish notability. What you need are reliable, independent sources (like newspapers or books) giving significant attention to the article subject (the locomotive), not random people on the Internet. Fram (talk) 16:16, 2 September 2021 (UTC)

Youth Institute of Technology

@Fram:. You nominated Youth Institute of Technology for deletion. This is a physical computer training institute established by Government of Pakistan and Government of Punjab, Pakistan. While for a public Educational institution according to WP:NSCHOOL only WP:ORG and WP:GNG required. You can found this institute is listed on different government websites. While on the other hand, the previous version was different that was a private institute and established in 2017. But this institute is established in 2019 as a public institute by the local government. You can also check deletion log, everybodywiki and deletionpedia the previous version was created in 2018, owned by Youth Group Limited and Iftikhar Traders. I think this should stay on Wikipedia.BilalCheemaKhan (talk) 09:51, 3 September 2021 (UTC)

How does this school meet WP:GNG? There only are official sources and databases. Fram (talk) 09:53, 3 September 2021 (UTC)
This is a public school established by the local government. In countries like Pakistan, there will be no news references available for public schools. On the other end, official sources are from local government official websites. So, instead of deleting this article, we should place Template:Primary sources until this school has reliable secondary.BilalCheemaKhan (talk) 10:18, 3 September 2021 (UTC)
No, that template means "secondary sources exist but haven't been added to the article", not "no secondary sources exist". In the latter case, the article should be deleted. Fram (talk) 10:34, 3 September 2021 (UTC)

Please remove the mess you are making

Fram, please remove the messes you are adding to articles I have written, and remove the stuff you are putting on my talk page — Epipelagic (talk) 09:01, 6 September 2021 (UTC)

Hardly a mess, and not really clear which CC-BY license e.g. this one claims, but have reverted for now. Fram (talk) 09:03, 6 September 2021 (UTC)
When you treat someone badly you find the idea of an apology too difficult, don't you. Try some due diligence: look at this one and search on "creative commons", and please clean up the shrieking mess you left on my talk page. — Epipelagic (talk) 09:21, 6 September 2021 (UTC)
No, I don't. When I do treat someone badly, I apologize. Tagging pages mistakenly as copyright violations is hardly "treating someone badly" though. You are free to remove any messages from your talk page (and again, "shrieking mess" is a bit of an overreaction to two bog-standard template notices). Fram (talk) 09:35, 6 September 2021 (UTC)
Mistakenly tagging multiple articles written by long established editors as "copyright violations", and then leaving shrieking messes on their talk page, and then saying they are overreacting because they push back a bit, is definitely treating users badly. Except, I suppose, in the alternate universe occupied by you, Fram. If you are not particularly competent at determining whether something is a copyright violation, and it seems from your behaviour here that you are not, then you should assume good faith and not attack long established content builders just because attacking other users is what you do. — Epipelagic (talk) 20:18, 18 September 2021 (UTC)

Kréintgeshaff

Proposed deletion, I'll have you know, I live near Kréintgeshaff, I've been there, it's labelled on the commune as a village, there is a regular school bus that serves just Kréintgeshaff and only Kréintgeshaff to provide the children who live there access to the public school in contern, it's adjacent to an indurstrial zone, it's notable, it's not just a farm N1TH Music (talk) 16:40, 13 September 2021 (UTC)

Your own source says it's just a farm, and all else I can find indicates that it is simply a street with that farm and perhaps a few other houses. There is no indication of recognition as a separate village or of any other notability (being next to an industrial zone is hardly special). Without better sources, it will be deleted or redirected. Oh, and isn't "Kréintgeshaff" the Luxembourghish word, and the "Hoff" version a German word? The article has it the other way round. Fram (talk) 06:52, 14 September 2021 (UTC)
I see there is a commons category Commons:Category:Kroentgeshof (Contern). There are multiple place name signs: 1, 2 with the name "Kroentgeshof". Other signs are indicating "Kréintgeshaff" 3. It's also clear it's not a farm as it is a populated area (see multiple sub categories). To me it feels like the town is notable, but a proper reference is missing. SportsOlympic (talk) 08:16, 14 September 2021 (UTC)
A merge/redirect to Contern may be the best, it's not as if a lot can be said about it anyway. Fram (talk) 08:47, 14 September 2021 (UTC)

New Page Patrol newsletter September 2021

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg
New Page Review queue September 2021

Hello Fram,

Please join this discussion - there is increase in the abuse of Wikipedia and its processes by POV pushers, Paid Editors, and by holders of various user rights including Autopatrolled. Even our review systems themselves at AfC and NPR have been infiltrated. The good news is that detection is improving, but the downside is that it creates the need for a huge clean up - which of course adds to backlogs.

Copyright violations are also a serious issue. Most non-regular contributors do not understand why, and most of our Reviewers are not experts on copyright law - and can't be expected to be, but there is excellent, easy-to-follow advice on COPYVIO detection here.

At the time of the last newsletter (#25, December 2020) the backlog was only just over 2,000 articles. New Page Review is an official system. It's the only firewall against the inclusion of new, improper pages.

There are currently 706 New Page Reviewers plus a further 1,080 admins, but as much as nearly 90% of the patrolling is still being done by around only the 20 or so most regular patrollers.

If you are no longer very active on Wikipedia or you no longer wish to be part of the New Page Reviewer user group, please consider asking any admin to remove you from the list. This will enable NPP to have a better overview of its performance and what improvements need to be made to the process or its software.

New page reviewer of the year cup.svg

Various awards are due to be allocated by the end of the year and barnstars are overdue. If you would like to manage this, please let us know. Indeed, if you are interested in coordinating NPR, it does not involve much time and the tasks are described here.


To opt-out of future mailings, please remove yourself here. Sent to 827 users. 04:31, 16 September 2021 (UTC)

Bashereyre creations

I know the responsibility shouldn't be on you to move the process forwards, but thought I'd let you know that Bashereyre has explicitly announced departure, and since the ANI thread you started fizzled out, this leaves their 8000 creations in need of some kind of systematic review. Maybe we could do some sort of sample review of 100 creations to see exactly what problems we can expect at what frequencies. Not sure where the best venue is. — Bilorv (talk) 23:19, 18 September 2021 (UTC)

That's always the problem with such large scale problems: stopping the influx of new ones sometimes succeeds (preferably by a change in approach by the editor, but sadly too often by them retiring), but getting rid of old issues is much harder (see also CCI investigations). Added to this is the situation that if I would be going through their contributions, some people would call it hounding and would use it as evidence against me if they ever needed it.

Anune de wever’s page revert

Please clarify this reversion, and where else to put this noteworthy news. Deltaworkers (talk) 16:21, 20 September 2021 (UTC)

I highly doubt this is noteworthy news and not just some one-day storm in a teacup (which will be endlessly exploited by the far right of course), but if it belongs in the article, then it should be one sentence in the body, not in the lead, indicating how some stupid remarks were widely (and correctly) criticized: not how some stupid remarks make them a terrible person and pretend that they are the most noteworthy thing about them. WP:NPOV, WP:UNDUE and WP:BLP all are at play here. Fram (talk) 07:01, 21 September 2021 (UTC)

Adrie van der Poel

he spells his name "Adrie" on his twitter, and it is spelled so on his dutch wikipedia page and in virtually all articles

Parts in Vasari's Vite

Hello Fram, I'm working on splitting the German article on Vasari into one article on Vasari and a separate one on the Vite. Just like you some 14 years ago. With this edit, you soon changed the reflection of the original division (3 volumes, containing mostly biographies, those divided into 3 parts) into a 6-part division of the whole work. If you ask me, your 6-part division reflects neither the original division into 3 volumes nor the the original division of the biographies into 3 parts.

Your 6-part division has later been adopted in the German and other Wikipedia articles on the Vite or Vasari. Can you tell me, is there a reason why you introduced a 6-part division? Is there a source on which it is based? --Lektor w (talk) 08:46, 26 September 2021 (UTC)

Honestly, I don't remember where I got this division from. I guess I took it from some edition, but I can't find which one any longer. Fram (talk) 07:30, 27 September 2021 (UTC)
Thank you for answering. There must have been some source. As for the German article, I decided to switch back to the original three-volume and three-part structure of the work. And I just made some corrections in the English article. It seems nobody has ever noticed that the sentence "The following list respects the order of the book, as divided into its three parts" was no longer accurate after you had switched to the 6-part division 14 years ago. Lektor w (talk) 14:16, 27 September 2021 (UTC)
Thanks. If you prefer to switch to a three-part version, feel free to do so (best indicate it on the talk page, so people know where the change comes from and that you are actually following the division as in the original 1568 version). Fram (talk) 14:38, 27 September 2021 (UTC)
Thank you for encouring me. I just did it. I didn't use the talk page, I preferred commenting my edits. I think it's clear enough that it's better when we display the original order consistently. Instead of presenting our own six parts alongside pictures illustrating the original three-part order complete with comments mentioning the original parts I, II, III. --Lektor w (talk) 04:08, 28 September 2021 (UTC)

Draftifying Draft:Geza Tarjanyi?

Hi, thanks for your attention on this article. Can you expand on your rationale for draftifying this article? I notice in the comments you mention that he is best known for things for which the charges were dropped? From what I can tell, this is incorrect - he is best known for things for which he was never charged, since they are arguably not actually a crime in the UK. He is best known for confronting public officials in relation to the COVID19 pandemic which he believes is a hoax. That's not illegal, but it almost certainly is antisocial. --Salimfadhley (talk) 13:58, 6 October 2021 (UTC)

See the section "Harassment of Professor Van-Tam and Chris Whitty", including the last line. If he was charged with harassment, then harassment is illegal, and he shouldn't be said to be known for harassment in the lead is he isn't convicted for it. Fram (talk) 14:02, 6 October 2021 (UTC)
Would you be more comfortable if the draft described him as being best known for "confrontations"? We could also use the exact same word that our source used which is "abused". These incidents have been widely reported in both national and regional press here in the UK. I think the only question that seems to be at stake is whether these confrontations constituted "criminal harassment". It seems that you, me and eventually the metropolitan police agree that they did not. --Salimfadhley (talk) 14:16, 6 October 2021 (UTC)

Sports link

The sports link template is used on over 29000 athlete page see Template:Sports_links I don't no why you don't want it used on one specific athlete page. Yachty4000 22:56, 12 October 2021 (UTC)

@Yachty4000: in general, because Wikidata sucks and using templates like these is lazy, careless editing, hoping that another site will do it right, will not get vandalized, and so on. In this specific case, like I said, because it contains a double link to World Sailing, one of which doesn't work. I have no idea why you didn't, I don't know, test the actual links when someone opposed the addition; instead you chose to continue to insert this. Please, when someone objects, just skip that page (or add the links, after checking, manually instead of relying on another site) and move on to pages where there is no issue.

Short descriptions

Why have you removed approx. 100 "Wikimedia list article" descriptions from articles? They should all be changed to "Wikipedia list article," not removed. Chicdat (talk) 10:30, 14 October 2021 (UTC)

"Wikipedia list article" is only marginally better than "Wikimedia list article". "Wikipedia" adds nothing to the understanding, neither does "list" (which is in tehe title of these lists", neither does "article". see WP:SDNONE. In the past, we replaced the "Wikimedia" one with the "Wikipedia" one because removing the description would only lead to a display of the Wikidata one again. Since then, two things have changed; we no longer show the Wikidata description even if we don't have one, and we have magic words like "none" which indicate that the description is deliberately blank (because a description is unnecessary for self-explanatory titles). Feel free to replace "none" with a description which is better, but please don't use the generic and rather empty "Wikipedia list article" any longer. Fram (talk) 11:17, 14 October 2021 (UTC)
All right. 🐔 Chicdat  Bawk to me! 11:37, 14 October 2021 (UTC)
Is there a guideline or decision you can point us to? Massive projects to change multiple articles like this should have a discussion first. I'll be restoring the standard description on any article on my watch list unless you can show me a discussion and decision on the matter. Skyerise (talk) 15:19, 14 October 2021 (UTC)
Apart from "but discussion", do you have any actual reason you think "Wikimedia list article" is in any way a useful short description? Discussions at Wikipedia talk:Short description time and again agreed that both "Wikimedia list article" and "Wikipedia list article" should go, but at first went nowhere because not having a short desc wasn't an option then(Wikipedia_talk:Short_description/Archive_7#Lists), and later stranded on discussion how best to program a bot to do this (e.g. Wikipedia talk:Short description/Archive 10).

Football vs European Football vs Associate Football

Globally the sport is known as simply football, but obviously that would cause confusion with American Football. I can however refute anyone calling it Associate football, apart from Americans probably. Like i said when American football and Spherical-ball football are compared, the term "European football" is most prefered. Source 1Source 2 Source 3

Yes i have also stumbled across Association Football countless times but the vast majority of the population arent aware of the term, including myself before. If soccer was put in brackets because it is used by the minority, then Associate Football is virtually unheard of in the Spherical-ball football world. This has already been raised in the page [[1]]. However if there is still a disagreement then i think "Football (FIFA)" would be probably the most appropriate and better choice than Associate Football. Cheers --LostCitrationHunter (talk) 16:57, 15 October 2021 (UTC)

Your redirection

I do not consider the work I am doing on titles of nobility to be "useless", when there is a singleton holder. Maybe you do. I think you should at least consider the set-index situation on a page such as Robinson baronets. There is a clear need to create set indices for these big aggregated pages. Typically up to 90% of the information on those pages is unreferenced.

The ontological situation is that the title is different from the person: often the title may exist for only a short part of a life. Charles Matthews (talk) 10:43, 21 October 2021 (UTC)

In what way does the set index gets impacted by one or more of the entries being redirects instead of articles? Fram (talk) 10:47, 21 October 2021 (UTC)

At WP:SIA it says "The criteria for creating, adding to, or deleting a set index article should be the same as for a stand-alone list." At WP:SAL it says (WP:CSC)

"Lists are commonly written to satisfy one of the following sets of criteria:

On the face of it, there is an issue there, and so I'd think we're in the third case, Short, complete lists of every item that is verifiably a member of the group.

I actually don't think the argument is very strong here, that the title must be merged. Duplication of content seems to be regulated operationally, by WP:PAM, rather than by a guideline. In any case it is not a case of "so obviously necessary and appropriate that no one is expected to object", per WP:PAM.

Charles Matthews (talk) 11:11, 21 October 2021 (UTC)

  • I can make heads nor tails of your arguments against redirection (is it to create a Wikidata item? Is it because you fear someone will object to its inclusion in a set index, which is highly unlikely? Is it just because you can?). I'll start an AfD instead (which also deals with redirects which get objected against). Fram (talk) 11:17, 21 October 2021 (UTC)

To be clear: I was unable to create a Wikidata item for the title. That was a temporary situation.

It seems to me that an AfD, therefore whether the title is a notable topic in itself, is not great for a topic that occurs in many reference works. Template:Infobox hereditary title has many fields. Charles Matthews (talk) 11:33, 21 October 2021 (UTC)

About Ali Mahir Aksu

Hello @Fram:, I translate the pages on the Turkish Wikipedia site in accordance with En Wiki. I delete some parts when creating the page. It's not for advertising purposes, I don't have a connection with the person. Please make arrangements to help me.--Alpdenizo (talk) 13:39, 25 October 2021 (UTC)

Hi, the page seriously overstates his importance, he is not known in Hollywood at all but gets some attention in Turkey only it seems; and the articles uses unreliable sources like databases, press releases, and student newspapers. Fram (talk) 13:40, 25 October 2021 (UTC)
The references I added were the ones used in the Turkish Wiki. For this reason, I have not hosted any new references. But on the "Lain in America" page and on other pages, the name "Ali Mahir Aksu" is mentioned.--Alpdenizo (talk) 13:46, 25 October 2021 (UTC)
I don't know the rules at the Turkish Wikipedia, but on enwiki, such sources are in general unacceptable: see WP:RS for more information. And he is not mentioned at Laid in America. Fram (talk) 13:52, 25 October 2021 (UTC)

subpages

First, thanks for moving my page. I didn't know about the no subpages in mainspace. Just to be sure, as this is my first time making a subpage outside my own space, is there any question about it that I should know? Rules on what should, or should not be, in subpages? Gah4 (talk) 10:53, 29 October 2021 (UTC)

I think Wikipedia:Subpages explains everything quite neatly. In mainspace: not allowed. Outside of mainspace: nearly everything goes (of course not copyvios, attacks, BLP violations, ... but that's not really a worry here). Fram (talk) 10:55, 29 October 2021 (UTC)
I am always surprised to learn about some new WP: page. One more thing, though. When I first tried to make the page, it wouldn't let me, as it has a link to www.faqs.org, which apparently isn't allowed. That link existed in the original page, though. Otherwise, thanks again for fixing the page. Gah4 (talk) 13:20, 29 October 2021 (UTC)
Ah, the mysteries of the blacklist (or edit filters). I'm very happy it exists, but I have no idea how exactly it works (old links are left alone, new ones are disallowed? No idea). Fram (talk) 13:24, 29 October 2021 (UTC)

User:Bashereyre

I was pleased to come across Wikipedia:Administrators'_noticeboard/IncidentArchive1078#User:Bashereyre. While I didn't realize the extent of his editing errors you pointed out, I remain astonished at the quantity of low-quality substubs of non-notable clergymen he created. It seems he single-handedly created 90% of Wikipedia's articles on priests, deans, and archdeacons, with a semi-closed ecosystem of lists, templates, and biographies on people often sourced only to chronologies, with no coverage of any substance, e.g. Joseph (Dean of Armagh) and Meiler a Búrc. There's certainly no guideline establishing automatic notability for these types of positions. Just wondering if you had any thoughts about somehow addressing these other than impossible one-by-one AFDs? Reywas92Talk 04:50, 4 November 2021 (UTC)

In many cases, redirecting them is the best solution (e.g. for the many people who only had one position as archdeacon, redirecting to the article about the archdeacon title). The same goes for e.g. the many problematic articles about Indian or Nigerian bishops: redirect to the article on the diocese unless there is a decent, independent source in the article. People who want to keep these as separate articles are free to do the necessary legwork to make them error-free and adequately sourced. Fram (talk) 08:30, 4 November 2021 (UTC)

The ewer with the head of a rooster

Hi Fram, about the article The ewer with the head of a rooster, I like to inform you that I brought it from Wikipedia French, “Aiguière à tête de coq”. My fault that I forgot to put the interlanguage ‘French’ tag on it and I’m not able to do that while the word draft is in the title. ّ May I ask if you could turn the title back to its original position so I can correct the tag. I appreciate your cooperation.Alex-h (talk) 15:57, 5 November 2021 (UTC)

Can't you add the regular tags to the talk page? That's weird, why shouldn't this work?

Authority control parameters

Hi there, Fram. Thanks for showing interest in my articles. I see that in Elisabeth Glantzberg you added "Authority control (arts)|country=SV". I would be happy to use such details myself. Where can I find info about what can be added?--Ipigott (talk) 16:14, 9 November 2021 (UTC)

Hi Ipigott! At Template:Authority control (arts), you can see the different country parameters that can be added. If the country is not on the list, or if an article has close ties to more than one country, it's best not to add a parameter (it is not possible to add more than one at the moment). This template can be used on all arts-related articles instead of the general authority control one. I have vague plans to create similar ones for either other topics, or on a country basis, but I haven't done it so far (and I don't think anyone else has). All it does is call the general Authority Control template, and suppress all unnecessary links from it (e.g. the Czech national library for articles with no link to Czechia).

Anuna De Wever

Thank you for your much better explanation on the talk page there. – wallyfromdilbert (talk) 17:15, 10 November 2021 (UTC)

No problem. I'm usually not good with such things, but I try to be patient and explain things correctly. At best, it helps and the editor changes and/or disengages. At worst, it shows that the editor has had plenty of explanation and chances to change their approach. It's still a pity that we ditched the old "Verifiability, not Truth" adagio. Fram (talk) 17:18, 10 November 2021 (UTC)

Lifesaving

Dear Fram. You recently left a couple of messages on my board and removed all the stubs I had just created to populate the article List of world records in life saving. Could you please be more specific when you say "before you create further articles, indicate how these (and similar ones) meet our notability guidelines". Where would be the appropriate place for me to have that conversation? I am struggling to understand how to move forward as I started the development of that page by first creating a well documented bio of one of the athletes who has extensive visibility and coverage on multiple fronts, but ended up being blocked because of my first hand knowledge of the subject and the page was demoted to draft with a violation warning. So I then moved on to create very short stubs of other world records holders who I do not know personally and with the aim of leaving other editors the responsibility of further development. As we know that didn't get approved either. I mean, there are sports that do not receive as much visibility as others, but that does not mean they don't deserve to be included in an encyclopedia. What is the right way for me to expand this very much underdeveloped topic? And if in the end we disagree on its merit, what are the procedures to include other editors in the conversation? Thanks Creiamo (talk) 17:58, 10 November 2021 (UTC)

You could always post at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Swimming or (if you get no response there) at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Sports to get wider input. In general, it doesn't matter if you are the best in your sport or rather mediocre; what matters for Wikipedia is the attention you have received from reliabe, independent sources (so not from the athlete, their club, the organisation of the sport, ...). Some sports get disproportionate amounts of attention, some get almost no attention: this doesn't reflect the capacities of the athletes or the effort, which is too bad, but in the end we can only go with what the outside world gives significant attention. Fram (talk) 18:07, 11 November 2021 (UTC)

Thank you! I appreciate the honesty of your response as well as the leads. It might be a lost crusade, but I strongly believe that Wikipedia should use its power to break this vicious cycle rather than feed it. In my view people perceive the governing body of any sport to be the most reliable source available so that should be enough to get the ball rolling... Creiamo (talk) 00:05, 15 November 2021 (UTC)

Random Wikidata question

Hoping you know an answer to a random question. This article displays two short descs: a local en-WP one (Abandoned village in Panama) and one oddly ungrammatical one pulled from text in Infobox Settlement (Depopulated in Colón, Panama). I'm guessing the second of these is actually drawn from Wikidata, to which the Infobox seems linked. If so and given your Wikidata knowledge, would you know a way of disabling this second short desc without having to delete the infobox itself? If not no problems as I'll keep asking around elsewhere. -- Euryalus (talk) 04:26, 15 November 2021 (UTC)

Although I'm glad if I can blame things on Wikidata, this time they have no responsability here. The second short description is created by the infobox, ut normally you shouldn't get to see this anywhere as long as the explicitly defined one ("abandoned ...") is present? If you want to improve the second description, you can change in the infobox "settlement_type = Depopulated" to "settlement_type = Depopulated village" or something similar. Fram (talk) 08:25, 15 November 2021 (UTC)
Thanks, have done that as a workaround. -- Euryalus (talk) 09:14, 15 November 2021 (UTC)
I saw something about this previously, the auto-overwrite for local works against Wikidata pulled descs, but doesnt over-write additional locally derived ones. Essentially you need to blank/remove the parameter. Only in death does duty end (talk) 10:19, 15 November 2021 (UTC)
Hi OID, you mean in the infobox itself? Alas I tried that but it simply reverted to a default short desc of "Place." Fram's solution above works, just remove the local version and change the infobox contents to something that works as a short desc instead. But as a mild suggestion to whoever sets these things up, if we're going to automate short descs using infobox contents we should probably add details to each of the template docs for when that automated short desc needs revising. -- Euryalus (talk) 10:57, 15 November 2021 (UTC)
By default I think the infobox shortdesc should not apply if you're setting a local one on the article. See first paragraph after the bullet list in the doc: Automatically generated descriptions within templates should set the second parameter as noreplace so they do not override any short descriptions specifically added to the transcluding article. (which Module:Settlement short description is doing). So I dunno what's going on here, at a glance. Not sure if any of @Galobtter and Trialpears have time to check on this? ProcrastinatingReader (talk) 14:16, 15 November 2021 (UTC)
Euryalus: When you say This article displays two short descs that's only because you're using custom styles that expose additional shortdescs. The system only recognises one shortdesc per article, which in this case would have been "Abandoned ..." (though I haven't checked) per what PR says. If that's the case, there is no issue. – SD0001 (talk) 07:58, 16 November 2021 (UTC)

Shadeed Abdul Mateen

Hello, Fram,

I see you tagged this page for deletion but it seems like content that is also contained in Murder of Chen Shijun if you wanted to review this article, too. Liz Read! Talk! 17:12, 16 November 2021 (UTC)

There at least it is sourced, it seems, though still with obvious WP:BLPCRIME issues. I'll leave it alone for the moment, if it needs dealing with it will need admin tools on any case, so I can't really help there. Fram (talk) 17:15, 16 November 2021 (UTC)
I don't see an admin way of dealing with this other than deleting the entire murder article, and I'm not sure it is G10 worthy. I can't speed-read Chinese, but most sources do not have the full English name of the suspect, so I've removed it (and tried to make sure the article clearly says "suspect" everywhere and does not presume guilt). More eyes/improvements/ideas how to best proceed welcome. —Kusma (talk) 17:45, 16 November 2021 (UTC)

Hello, Fram,
As the main editor who looks over empty categories, I have asked those editors who create a lot of categories if they want to stop receiving these notices if a category they have created becomes empty. I'd like to ask you this as well. My only hesitation is that these notices have sometimes prompted you to investigate and find that categories have been emptied out-of-process, allowing that action to be reversed. That doesn't seem to be the situation with this three. Earlier this year, I stumbled on to a script that allows one to see any recent additions or subtractions to a category contents and it looks like the pages that were placed in these three have been deleted, not removed. I wish I had known about this script years ago but better now than never.
Still, if you find these CSD C1 notices are a bother, let me know and I'll skip sending them to you when I go through the daily list of empty categories. Thanks! Liz Read! Talk! 21:35, 28 November 2021 (UTC)

Hi Fram, I had some minor input into the Great Iran Flood and prematurely curated it through before you placed it in draft.

Adan Santiago Goc-ong Igut

I agree with you that there is information that should not have been on Adan Santiago Goc-ong Igut and should not have been to the point that some of it required suppression. But WP:G10 requires that it be [[entirely negative in tone and unsourced and there clearly was information that was neutral and was sourced, if to imdb which is obviously not OK. But that doesn't, in my view, provide some G10 loophole for an entire page. I see Liz has since deleted it as G4, which I'm going to presume was appropriate and why I commented that I hadn't considered any other CSD. Best, Barkeep49 (talk) 17:26, 5 January 2022 (UTC)

That's, will all due respect, bullshit. If you don't want to G10 pages which have unsourced information that requires suppression, in this case unsourced claims about the sexuality of a 12 year old, then just turn in your admin bit and let other people with some sense of responsability deal with this. TRHis is just outrageous.

When looking at requests from experienced users like you I expect that the best option for handling disruptive content has been considered. That was not the case here it seems.

Because Arbs are infallible and untouchable, and because you are a good judge of, well, anything? Do you really think that you are someone I would listen to? Fram (talk) 21:25, 5 January 2022 (UTC)

Please cool down

Hello, you suggested some helpfull improvements to my articel, thanks for that. But there is no point in putting every articel written by me in to Draft-Space. The last articel Sajid Mir was so obvers relevant and meets all criteria of Wikipedia, that your attitude is very unproductiv. Please cool down. --Outdoor-Bro (talk) 12:09, 7 January 2022 (UTC)

Have you read WP:BLPCRIME. We don't label living people "terrorists" without a conviction, and have to be very careful with articles about people being accused of being terrorists by the FBI and or the Mossad. They often will be right, but "often" isn't really good enough for our purposes. Fram (talk) 12:26, 7 January 2022 (UTC)
OK, I got your point. But please let me know your concerns via message. So I can work it out! Thanks --Outdoor-Bro (talk) 13:06, 7 January 2022 (UTC)

About 10K Projects

Hi Fram,

I am considering declining the... oops

I must admit that, knowingly at risk of WP:POINTY-ness, I was going to mention all the articles it could possibly be "what links here"-d to.

In its current shape, it's not ready for mainspace. Do think a better outcome all round would be WP:DRAFTIFY-ing?

What to you think? Pete AU aka --Shirt58 (talk) 10:17, 13 January 2022 (UTC)

Well, in retrospect I should have draftified it, and it may still be the best solution. The original creator doesn't give the impression of working on it. But thanks for adding the source and saving it from speedy deletion, that would have been wrong. Fram (talk) 10:19, 13 January 2022 (UTC)

Alice Walker

Thankyou for nominating the article on Alice Walker (fencer) for deletion. The number of articles that we have on Olympians that do not meet our inclusion criteria that have existed since October 2021 is quite staggering. It also surprises me we have not seen more nominations on this matter, but it is probably best people double and triple check before moving forward.John Pack Lambert (talk) 16:50, 13 January 2022 (UTC)

I first look for sources, and if not enough can be found I redirect to the event where possible. Only if that doesn't work do I start an AfD. And I don't go looking for these all the time, but they do cross my path. Going through some lists of cricket players is enough systematic work for the moment.

No reason to remove KANTO agent database

This page KANTO – National Agent Data was requested so I do not understand why you would immediately need to delete it. Deletion does not seem appropriate for the moment. This page is important giving additional background information to the Wikidata item KANTO (Q104089764) and the wikidata property KANTO ID (P8980) THere are links to pages providing addtional information which was not copied to Wikipedia.Saarik (talk) 17:47, 13 January 2022 (UTC)

Wikipedia does not exist to give background information to Wikidata, that's completely backwards. Who "requested" this page? Fram (talk) 17:49, 13 January 2022 (UTC)

A kitten for you!

hi Fram, a kitten for the civility you (and others:)) showed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Alice Walker (fencer).

Article in Speedy Deletion

Hello Fram, how you doing? The article "List of abandoned properties in Hayden, Arizona" should not be in "Speedy Deletion" because the content in the Hayden, Arizona article was originally written by me. I have tried to include some of my images there, however a certain editor continued to remove them. That is why I wrote this article and used the information which I had created in the first place. Thank you and take care. Tony the Marine (talk) 16:24, 18 January 2022 (UTC)

Hi, admin-in-name-only. Do you have an actual policy-based reason why this gallery should be an article? Are the "abandoned properties of Hayden" a notable subject on their own? Or is it, as you basically admit here, a content fork because you can't use or win proper dispute resolution? Fram (talk) 16:28, 18 January 2022 (UTC)
  • When addressing me do it with respect! Addressing me as an "admin-in-name-only" is not only disrespectful it is also rude. Yes, the article is about how a prosperous mining town is becoming a "Ghost town" in modern times and the images that took and added serve to proof my point. Thank you Tony the Marine (talk) 20:50, 18 January 2022 (UTC)
    Respect is something you need to earn, and which is lost very easily. You felt the need to start about your admin status as if that had any bearing on the speedy deletion of your article, and it is a status you only use for that purpose apparently. You make irrelevant arguments for the retention of your content fork, and don't know the basics of talk page etiquette, but are very quick to be claiming "harassment" and so on. So I'll address you with the respect you deserve. Fram (talk) 20:57, 18 January 2022 (UTC)

thanks

for catching my page in the wrong space. DGG ( talk ) 00:45, 19 January 2022 (UTC)

Grand Duchy of the Lagoan Isles

Hi! Can you please justify your edit? Excellenc1 (talk) 11:17, 19 January 2022 (UTC)

When there is this little to say about a subject, it is better to just include it in a list. Those micronations are a dime a dozen, and usually just get a mention for laughs. It has been noted, so it warrants a redirect and a list entry, but there's hardly any need to document this extensively. Fram (talk) 11:28, 19 January 2022 (UTC)
