Page to be deleted - Obvious advertisingEdit

Good morning,

I wanted to report the following page:

This is blatant advertising, the entry is not encyclopaedic and a user (Allensyllos) keeps removing the quick deletion request. The character on the page in question is self-promoting for his real estate business in Dubai, any source given is self-promotional. He is blatantly doing this to legitimise his position for promotional purposes.

Thank youEdit

  Admin Barnstar for you
Thank you for all the services, we really appreciate your works here.

Cities and towns categories.Edit

I noticed you have been moving these. I think you are confusing the two levels of the category tree. The settlements categories are the equivalent of the populated places categories on The cities and towns categories are one level down and are the equivalent of the cities and towns categories on The settlements categories contain anywhere that has any population ie villages and unincorporated locations, whereas the other categories as the name suggest only include cities and towns. Its a subcategory of the settlements categories. -Djsasso (talk) 13:54, 19 November 2021 (UTC)

@Djsasso No, I'm not confusing them. I know that cities, towns, villages, hamlets, and possibly others go under settlements, and that our settlement categories are the equivalent of the categories for populated places elsewhere. However, "cities and towns" groups two different things, which is generally a bad idea. Also note that:
  • Some of the city-and-town categories I renamed were linked to populated place categories elsewhere, so that is the purpose they were serving.
  • Some of the subcats of Category:Settlements in Austria by state were already named "Settlements".
  • The categories I renamed were directly under the categories for their respective state. They were not under a parent settlement category, like the city-and-state categories elsewhere.
I do see that I still need to adjust some Wikidata links, so I will look at that later. -- Auntof6 (talk) 17:22, 19 November 2021 (UTC)
Grouping two things, isn't actually a bad idea in many cases such as cities and towns, it is done because the names can vary for what is essentially the same thing (such as cities and towns in some countries) or they are highly related topics. As to the third point, we do this all the time if there is no need of the parent category, such as all the items are in that one category and none fall outside it. But yes the main reason I asked is because the moving broke the wikidata to the categories. -Djsasso (talk) 18:35, 19 November 2021 (UTC)
@Djsasso I fixed all but Category:Settlements in Mistelbach District. There isn't an equivalent higher-level category for the district. I disagree about grouping multiple things, but if you think I should rename this one back, let me know and I will. -- Auntof6 (talk) 21:33, 19 November 2021 (UTC)

QD or other follow-up of "RfD Deletion" of November 13?Edit

Deletion & ReflectionEdit

If I request an admin to delete my user page in this wiki, and if it is deleted, will the reflection from "my user page in meta wiki" come here? Or, will the page be seen as deleted by an admin "XYZ-ABC", as per the request from "User:ABC-XYZ" ? Haoreima (talk) 07:38, 20 November 2021 (UTC)

@Haoreima You will see your meta user page. We have had quite a few users do that. -- Auntof6 (talk) 08:10, 20 November 2021 (UTC)
Another question, I saw an Infobox deity has reflection of images from Wikidata item (if there's image in Wikidata item) and that particular Infobox deity doesn't have an image. But there's no reflection in case of Infobox folktale. Is there any reason for these mechanism? Haoreima (talk) 08:20, 20 November 2021 (UTC)
@Haoreima I think it depends on whether the infobox template is set up to retrieve an image from Wikidata. -- Auntof6 (talk) 08:23, 20 November 2021 (UTC)
Is there any list of those specialised infoboxes and non specialised infoboxes? Haoreima (talk) 08:43, 20 November 2021 (UTC)
@Haoreima Not that I know of. -- Auntof6 (talk) 08:45, 20 November 2021 (UTC)
One last question, what is the maximum number of sandboxes a single user can create? Can I create more than 1 sandbox? And regarding naming, can I name them in any name, instead of "sandbox", but with the prefix "User:Haoreima:.... "? Haoreima (talk) 08:47, 20 November 2021 (UTC)
@Haoreima: Nope. There's no limit on how many sandboxes one can create. I at one point had about 20 or so in my English Wikivoyage userspace, although it's now more like five. SHB2000 (talk) 08:12, 22 November 2021 (UTC)
@Haoreima Sorry for not replying sooner. SHB2000 is right, there is no limit to the number of sandbox pages you can have, and they don't have to have "sandbox" in the name. Just make sure you are using them for something that will help the wiki. Wikipedia:User page gives guidance on user subpages, which is what sandboxes are. -- Auntof6 (talk) 18:53, 22 November 2021 (UTC)


Hey Auntof6, Just wanted to let you know that you forgot to delete the page Here. Thanks :)-BRP ever 08:27, 21 November 2021 (UTC)

@BRPever Thanks, it's gone now. -- Auntof6 (talk) 08:28, 21 November 2021 (UTC)

Deleted pageEdit

Hello, I would like to know why my page deleted Yassineennassiri3456 (talk) 01:16, 22 November 2021 (UTC)

@Yassineennassiri3456 If you mean Jack Ninte Moroccan Record Producer, it was deleted because it did not show that the subject was notable. One other note, when you create a page about a person, the article title should just be the person's name; it should not include their job or other information. -- Auntof6 (talk) 01:21, 22 November 2021 (UTC)

Please restore Kokusai himitsu keisatsu: Kayaku no taru to my userspaceEdit

As you mentioned in the closure decision, please restore Kokusai himitsu keisatsu: Kayaku to my userspace and I'll see when I can get to it. Thanks. Gotanda (talk) 21:58, 22 November 2021 (UTC)

@Gotanda I will as soon as I'm on my laptop again, unless someone else gets to it first. -- Auntof6 (talk) 08:56, 23 November 2021 (UTC)
@Gotanda   Done It's at User:Gotanda/Kokusai himitsu keisatsu: Kayaku no taru. -- Auntof6 (talk) 00:54, 24 November 2021 (UTC)

Please revert Chalet pageEdit

I hope this meets well, have seen your efforts in formatting the discussion page for Chalet Lizette Brannan, you are in the best interest to halt the deletion and revert by taking away the deletion tag, the nominator is notorious for acting out of regards for process, he is concern more about edits number and not due process. The page nominated for deletion was rewritten and not standing in anyway as a copyright or copy and paste as he inscribed, as you can make a diligence also as well about it. The article is encyclopedic and meets notability guidelines. I hope you can remove the tag, and the article can also be improve with time. Thanks Mirandatalks (talk) 05:16, 2 December 2021 (UTC)

@Mirandatalks: I cannot remove the deletion tag, because the discussion is still in progress. The discussion is scheduled to last until December 8. The admin who closes it will remove the tag if the article is kept.
I disagree with you about Gotanda's motivation. If you accuse an editor of something like that, you should have evidence. In any case, it is a separate issue from the RFD. -- Auntof6 (talk) 06:31, 2 December 2021 (UTC)
Thanks for your clarity. I will avail the evidence at appropriate. Mirandatalks (talk) 07:09, 2 December 2021 (UTC)
