Rahul Kumar PandeyEdit

Hey, There were not at all any advertising content, Also the person is highly notable! What’s the point of deleting it? Had conversation with other admin and he said previous one was advertising, so I created this one!

Please help and undo the deletion admin sir! Raaahulpandey (talk) 17:36, 11 August 2020 (UTC)

Thank you for making hard work EASY!Edit

Editing an archived RfDEdit

I just realised I badly and inappropriately misspelt a term in Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2020/Alif Laila (2020 Series). I actually meant it to be Google hits. Is it possible for me to edit that bit? I know I shouldn't be editing archived threads anymore, but I would appreciate if that bit could be rectified somehow. So sorry for the inconvenience. --Infogapp1 (talk) 14:50, 19 August 2020 (UTC)

@Infogapp1: that would be perfectly fine. -Djsasso (talk) 16:08, 20 August 2020 (UTC)

TranswikiEdit

My first instinct is always to try to save stubs, especially when they're notable (i.e. Dennis Villarojo, Katherine McNamara,Caity Lotz and then leave a note in the editor's talk page about how we treat attribution in this page. However, whenever an account keeps adding articles without taking the copyright notes into consideration, that's when I end up flagging some of their works. Do you suggest I should just try to save them by (1) simplifying the article (2) adding attribution myself? I'm fine with that approach, but I also want to be careful that I don't set incorrect expectations to new editors that the practice of adding articles without attribution and simplification is acceptable. Alternatively, I can just do this for obvious stubs and tag QD for full-on long articles (2000 bytes+). What do you suggest? --Infogapp1 (talk) 16:54, 21 August 2020 (UTC)

That really is up to personal opinion. I personally try to save everything I can unless its just far too complex to save in a couple minutes. Most articles here start as copied articles from en.wiki. It is the not continuing to work on them and simplify them (along with lack of attribution) that is the real issue, not so much the copying itself. Some people worry that just outright deleting scares away a potential new editor as well, so sometimes just pointing out to them about requirements can be helpful as well. -Djsasso (talk) 18:03, 21 August 2020 (UTC)
Copy that, thanks --Infogapp1 (talk) 18:06, 21 August 2020 (UTC)

AttributionEdit

Hi Djsasso, Quick question regarding attribution. I've noticed several edits (new pages mainly) recently with edit summaries calling to check the page history following an article being copied from enwp. I was under the impression a permanent link was required either in the change summary or on the talk page. What's your take on this? --Yottie =talk= 12:51, 11 September 2020 (UTC)

Technically exact link it is not required. It is however the much preferred way. But legally speaking as long as you say where you are getting it from you are in the clear as the reader can go an see the attribution history. I often only say "based on en.wiki" if I am not using the import tool. -Djsasso (talk) 12:53, 11 September 2020 (UTC)
Sounds good, thanks for the quick reply!--Yottie =talk= 12:57, 11 September 2020 (UTC)
