Vespa velutina eradication

Hello Eptalon. Please undelete Vespa velutina eradication. It is obviously neither fake nor a hoax. I provided several references for this. This is the second deletion that article has suffered without discussion, notice to me or a valid reason. Invasive Spices (talk) 16:43, 29 November 2023 (UTC)Reply

I'm still working on Sports for the disabled. Its a bigger and more complicated topic than I expected, so it may well merit more than one article. Rathfelder (talk) 11:28, 3 December 2023 (UTC)Reply

Kira Kosarin

Hey I'm Plitomic Pink and I would like to propose that the Kira Kosarin Article be restored. It is an interesting article and it makes plenty of sense. I would like to have an answer by the end of the day. I'm too busy doing research and if you don't come with an answer I will have to make the article myself.

RfD nomination of Iwasawa theory

An editor has requested deletion of Iwasawa theory, a page you created. We appreciate your changes, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article meets Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in the nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not").

Please comment on the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2024/Iwasawa theory and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also change the article during the discussion to address the nominator's concerns. But you should not remove the requests for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate. Thank you very much.

Request for Undeletion Discussion on Kourage Beatz NSI

Hello @Eptalon

I hope this message finds you well. I am writing to discuss the recent deletion of the "Kourage Beatz NSI" page, which you were involved in on January 2, 2024, at 08:38 (UTC). The deletion reason specified was "Recreation of a deleted page with the same or similar content (QD G4)," with prior deletions citing issues such as advertising (QD G11) and creation by a user evading a block or ban (G5).

I understand the reasons behind the deletions and appreciate the effort in maintaining Wikipedia's standards. I am reaching out to express my intention to address the concerns raised and contribute a revised version of the page that aligns with Wikipedia's guidelines and policies.

I would be grateful if we could engage in a discussion regarding the undeletion of "Kourage Beatz NSI." I am committed to ensuring that the new content will adhere to Wikipedia's standards, be free of advertising, and meet the notability criteria.

Your guidance and feedback on the matter would be highly valued, and I am open to making any necessary adjustments to comply with Wikipedia's policies.

Thank you for your time and consideration. Justinbenji (talk) 21:20, 16 January 2024 (UTC)Reply

Hello there,
The page was deleted after a discussion of a week. If I remember correctly, it was a CV-style page with few/no reliable sources. If such a page then gets created again with similar content, it is likely it will be quick-deleted. Note that a successful Rfd doesn't mean pages can be recreated. For this reason I would suggest you file a request for undeletion, and if that is successful, start from there. Eptalon (talk) 06:17, 17 January 2024 (UTC)Reply

Thank you, I would nevertheless like to comment:
  • This is Simple English Wikipedia, it has somer very specific issues: Articles need to be both accurate, and easy to understand.
  • Making articles easy to understand is also about explining well. We have had issues in the past where editzors tried to improve some readabiliy scores, and the article in question was very difficult to understand in the end.
  • It might be worthwile to get medicine-related articles into focus, by nominating them to Did you know? or by getting them to Good article status. Both will likely require editors who understand this community though.

Assistance please

Hi we have a cat Category:Taxonbars_on_possible_non-taxon_pages that has 3 pages in it that need to be fixed to come out of that cat. I am unsure of how to do this. Would it be an addition to wikidata? Or is there something else? For example, Pseudophilautus adspersus is the scientific name of Sri Lanka bubble-nest frog and it is linked to the right wikidata object.

Ex: Pseudophilautus adspersus on ours has the same taxon bars and infobox as w:Pseudophilautus adspersus and pulls from the same wikidata. I am guessing maybe something with the Module:Taxonbar or the taxonbar whitelist? Thanks - PDLTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 04:52, 31 March 2024 (UTC)Reply

Old templates

Hi Eptalon. So we have some older templates that have been deleted on ENWP See Template:2018 FIFA World Cup Group A table vs. ENWP. For this specific one, there are only two articles linking to it. The rest are templates, also deleted. It looks like they had a mass TFD w:Wikipedia:Templates_for_discussion/Log/2022_December_6#FIFA_World_Cup_group_table_templates The reason I am bringing this up is there are 197 templates in Category:Sidebars_with_styles_needing_conversion that I am going to update to the recent versions if they exist and I have access so they use the correct parameters. There TFD is a little confusing to me as it says the result was substitute and delete. I am not sure what they are being substituted with. What are your thoughts on this? While you ponder, I am going to start looking at the others and see what I can do to change them to the newer versions. I will keep a list of any I cannot touch and then post them on AN for someone to import them. Thanks, and be well! - PDLTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 07:52, 13 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

Template:ISO 639 name en

Hi there, Eptalon. This template has been depreciated (see ISO 639 name from code templates on ENWP). Since I am not familiar with the intricate details of this, I wanted to see if you can handle it. Per the TFD, it appears everything went down to just one template, and the rest have been deleted. They sent them all to hit Template:ISO 639 name. On just the Template:ISO 639 name en, there are 3 wikilinks and 19,013 transclusions.[1] Please let me know if you find the solution and what help you would need. Per their TFD, they had ~1300 templates to handle. Thanks, and be well! - PDLTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 22:00, 16 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

iso 639 is a two or three letter code for a language, plus optionally a code for the script. IIRC, sr-latn is for Serbian or Serbo-Croatian, written in Latin script. Eg. Croatia uses that to write the language,Sr-cryr or sr-cyrl is the same language but in Cyrillic Characters (used in Serbia, for example). Sr is just the language, or the language with the script that is normally used. IIRC, we might even use language variants, en-US us English as it is used in the United states. Given how Ofen it is used, are you sure we should deprecate it, what's the replacement? Eptalon (talk) 22:14, 16 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
They implemented ISO 639 name to handle all of the language codes using the LUA. Where I am normally seeing the template get transcluded on is article talk pages for the This was translated from xx to en. From the TFP If the TfD passes, the plan is to convert all direct "ISO 639 name x" usages to use Template:ISO 639 name.

Issue with wording on RFCU

So all of you say we cannot include IPs to CU. The directly goes against the very top of the page that says we can

CheckUser is the process of checking information about two or more users (including named users and IPs). Special users are able to check if two or more accounts have been used from the same computer. These users also see User agents. This can help them decide if two accounts are related in the way described above. It is also possible to see if a user is editing from an open proxy. On this page, users can request some users or IPs to be checked. Good reasons should be given for why a checkuser is needed; you should provide links which show the questionable edits, etc. Questions should usually be created so that they can be answered by yes or no. Responses will be short in order to comply with Wikipedia privacy policy. Sensitive information (like the IP addresses used by an account) are usually not reported. The results are not always clear, and a decision should not be made only on the basis of checkuser results.

If that is wrong, they it needs to be updated and corrected. If it is correct then statements on simple talk need to striked out and apologized for. Thanks, and be well! - PDLTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 09:00, 17 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

Please look at this policy,
Esp the section about releasing such information. Eptalon (talk) 12:14, 17 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
I am aware, however, it has repeatedly been said to us to not put IP addresses on the RFCU page, however, the wording at the top says "On this page, users can request some users or IPs to be checked" which directly contradicts statements like this one Wikipedia:Simple talk#Checkuser requests "Let me add to that that as checkusers, we are forbidden from linking usernames with IP adresses; we can't comment on IP addresses. So, only named accounts please... Eptalon (talk) 20:13, 8 April 2024 (UTC)Reply" that you made. Thanks, and be well! - PDLTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 22:49, 18 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
(talk page stalker) I am not a checkuser and am not familiar with the procedures of doing checkuser work. However, could it be that CUs can look into IPs and possibly take action, but just not comment on any of it? -- Auntof6 (talk) 00:53, 19 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
@Auntof6 Yes, they cannot comment due to the privacy and such referenced, however, the issue is just a contradiction in the WP:RFCU header vs. what is being said to us, as referenced. (being told we cannot put IPs up for CU against an account name), when the heading says we can. Thanks, and be well! - PDLTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 00:55, 19 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
@PotsdamLamb: I understand that. I was asking the person who actually has checkuser rights. Because if they can check but not comment on said check, then it seems that wouldn't be a contradiction: people could ask, but they wouldn't get actual feedback on it. -- Auntof6 (talk) 00:57, 19 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
@Auntof6 That is what I am saying. They have told us they cannot comment on it, which is understandable. I am sure we also all know it as well. The problem is Eptalon made a statement on Simple Talk "Let me add to that that as checkusers, we are forbidden from linking usernames with IP adresses; we can't comment on IP addresses. So, only named accounts please... Eptalon (talk) 20:13, 8 April 2024 (UTC)Reply" So yes it is a contradiction by him saying to only use named accounts, when the header says we can put both usernames and IPs up for checking. If IPs, then yes, they cannot comment on it, however, as has happened, when it goes on the board and we see the IP was blocked with whatever reason, then we know it was correct (depending on who made the block). So while they cannot directly comment on the IP, with a CU blocking it, that is basically a comment, just not said.

Double check

I think the one RfP you just deleted was not a duplicate. They had a different name. It was like the 3rd or 4th word in. I thought they were the same at first glance too. Thanks, and be well! - PDLTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 09:09, 20 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

Voiced dental and alveolar taps and flaps

I’m not sure what to do with this article. The creator has been bringing over a lot of complex articles from ENWP filled with errors like this one and moves on. Thoughts? Thanks, and be well! - PDLTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 06:50, 21 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

I am not a linguist, but likely this is a valid topic. I have two concerns, though:
  • over here, no one is going to look for it with that title, hopefully there's a simpler term
  • If there's on hint at the user trying to simplify (after some time), it would probably fall under 'copied from another WP, little sign of simplification'.
If in doubt, nominate for regular deletion? (Like I did with two articles just a short time ago) - If nothing else, it will show what the community thinks, and an admin can then close it accordingly. Eptalon (talk) 06:59, 21 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
That was my thought. This editor hasn’t been simplifying some of them. I’ll keep an eye on it until tomorrow and see what happens. I don’t know what templates they are trying to call either where it says the BIG BOLD etc. Btw, one of the ones you just deleted was recreated right after you deleted it. Different IP though as it doesn’t show being created previously under that ip. Thanks, and be well! - PDLTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 07:04, 21 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
Do me a favor, and create an RfD, rather than nominating as quick-deletion. This will give us more input, it might also create a precedent for similar cases in the future. Eptalon (talk) 07:06, 21 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
Ok thanks. Thanks, and be well! - PDLTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 07:11, 21 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

Something weird

This IP comes up as a mobile user in Switzerland but they have made a lot of articles (stubs) in less than an hour for someone on a phone. They seem to also be overlapping in the territory of where this editor is at, as well as following me around and working on the same things I am (right after I make a change). The concern is the IP, which I’m not asking you to make any comment on but I am asking you to look into the suspicious behavior please.

Thanks, and be well! - PDLTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 07:30, 21 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

That's unlikely (haven't had a look), that IP doesn't doesn't create accounts. Eptalon (talk) 07:33, 21 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
Ok. It’s just really suspicious behavior to me. I don’t see it as a proxy on proxyio but I know some bots have created tons of stubs. That’s why I was inquiring. Thanks for looking into it. Thanks, and be well! - PDLTalk to me!Please don't eat da 🐑! 07:38, 21 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
If you look at their contributions, you will see that many of them are small fixes, here and there... Eptalon (talk) 07:43, 21 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

Appeal for Carlo Rino Group Berhad page to be reinstated

Dear Wikipedia reviewer, I noticed you have requested that my article titled ”Carlo Rino Group Berhad”Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2024/Carlo Rino Group Berhad to be deleted. I would like to appeal to resubmit this page for your kind review and approval with additional supporting articles that I strongly believe meet the 4 criteria (in-depth, reliable, secondary, strictly independent) and demonstrate that the subject qualifies for a Wikipedia page and is notable.

https://theedgemalaysia.com/node/708062 - this newspaper article from a Financial Newspaper in Malaysia talks in depth with figures, numbers and details about Carlo Rino IPO in 2018 and listing on the Malaysian stock exchange. https://theedgemalaysia.com/article/style-whim- This newspaper article published by the Sun talks about the Carlo Rino 2015 spring collection, and the innovative materials used in shoes and handbags https://www.theceomagazine.com/executive-interviews/apparel-accessories/william-chiang/ - This is a magazine interview with the CEO of Carlo Rino where he talks about partnering with Looney Tunes and growing importance of e-commerce and data in business. It’s also stated that Carlo Rino is a growing brand and has reached 100 points of sales (globally) in 2022

These 3 articles in addition to the 10 existing references demonstrate that Carlo Rino Group Berhad is a well known, popular and successful fashion brand in many countries in Asia.

Thus, I hope you would agree that it meets the “Notability requirement” for a Wikipedia page.

Looking forward to your favourable response. Allewikiwriter (talk) 07:21, 20 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

Yes, I closed that RfD a few weeks ago. As you can see in the RfD, there were few comments, and those that were there were to delete. You have two options, now: You can add the page to Wikipedia:Deletion review (that is: if it was wrongly delelted), or you can start a new page. Note however, if you start a new page, and it is similar to what we had, it will likely get quick-deleted. Eptalon (talk) 07:33, 20 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
