Help! change

Hey I created a page 'Derna' which is about a 'City in Libya' but in it's short description it shows 'river in Belarus'.

Can you tell me whats the problem or How can I change it/can you change it? Faraz Sualeh (talk · contribs) 04:10, 30 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

fixed the infobox fr33kman 22:42, 30 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Since I was here.. The Wikidata was pointed to the wrong article. I fixed that. I also moved the page the Derna, Libya and cleaned up the inbound links. None were to the river, but there was one to place in Romania. The main page should need to be either the most common name or a disambig page, but Ill leave that as a redirect for now.

Arrowsmith school change

The article was being edited when you suddenly deleted it. The citations are from Google scholar making it WP:GNG and already has had an entry on other Wikis going back years. I don't know what you're doing. Serener (talk) 23:53, 5 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I didn't see anything that claimed it was notable. You must explain why it is notable, not just write about it. fr33kman 23:56, 5 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I put in citations as required and these are third party citations besides 2 from the founder itself. I ensured to keep out promotional stuff and had numerous citations arguing the opposite. How do you suddenly delete a fully cited article without discussion? It's beyond me.--Serener (talk) 00:01, 6 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

You can add hundreds of citations without explaining HOW it is notable. Citations from the founder are not neutral and not reliable. What notable alumni has there been, what MAJOR awards has the school received. What has been written abut it in newspapers, journals, books, TV programmes etc... fr33kman fr33kman 00:09, 6 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
This is a well-written article about a notable school. What you wrote was not. fr33kman 00:18, 6 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
BTW: do not just copy and pste from enwiki to here. Read and follow WP:CW first. fr33kman 00:24, 6 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It really should be pointed out that Serener has been a contributor to the En. wiki article you point out is a well written article about a notable school (the school that is the subject of this article under construction). Their contributions to that article go back to 2019 with no administrative actions and only a welcome message on their talk page. Not coming across as a trouble maker. Pure Evil (talk) 00:49, 6 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Never claimed they were a trouble maker, only that the article as it was made on this wiki did not meet A4. That's why I pointed it out to them and how to change it to fit our needs. fr33kman 01:01, 6 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Which they said they were doing ("The article was being edited ") when you deleted it only 5 minutes after its creation (23:49, October 5, 2023 from 23:44, October 5, 2023). Just saying, you could have given them a little more time to address the issues. especially as it does seem they were not given the opportunity for a wait template between it being tagged, them being alerted to the issue and your deletion of the article. Pure Evil (talk) 02:09, 6 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
There was no QD tag placed, I simply deleted it. There was no {{in progress}} template and the entire aricle was 90% about the founder and her life with no mention of anything claiming notability. If they were a major author of the enwiki article they could have brought it over in a much better format than the disorganised mess it was in. When I create an article I don't do it in bits and pieces, I keep working and pressing preview until I'm 90% happy with it. Then I save it. If an in progress template was placed this could all have been avoided. fr33kman 02:17, 6 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
If you bothered looking at the sources, you'd see there is much more than the subject itself and the majority were secondary sources, mostly critical of the subject but from an academic perspective. Instead of messaging me or raising objections on the talk page or reading through the sources, you got trigger-happy and just deleted all that hardwork. It must be more fun hitting the deletion button than making an effort to bring up any legit objections -none of which there were if anyone bothered to check. No wonder Wikipedia has the reputation it does.--Serener (talk) 22:36, 16 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I've compared it to the enwiki version and there seems to be no difference. I'm not an expert with wiki markup language so I'd ask someone else if I were you; perhaps eptalon, Vermont, or Auntof6. Or else ask someone from another project like dungodung etc... Good luck. :) fr33kman 00:46, 9 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The page in your user space was using the box template with two depreciated parameters. This caused the template to place the page in an error category and to not display the information at all. Being it is the page of an active user, rather than just fixing the issue, I informed you of what was causing both proplegs on your page as well as what was needed to be done to correct the error and display problem. Pure Evil (talk) 01:12, 9 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Ok, I'm still not seeing what the problem is. Am I miss using the {{box}} template somewhere? Because I'm not seeing it. Can you please point out the exact problem? fr33kman 01:43, 9 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thejo Kumari Amudala change

I left a !vote on the AFD after I went through the sources and did some other digging. Biggest (not at all) shock was that the page was created on EN as well, multiple times, and always deleted as a G5 [2] with the creator being part of the Amansharma111 sock farm. I had also tagged Ujjawal Trivedi here as G11 (which you deleted and thank you!), but got to wondering and to no surprise, it's been created multiple times on EN and deleted as G5 as created by a sock of Amansharma111 - [3]. Think it's worth having a CU check if the two accounts here are related, plus any other accounts or just not worry about it? Ravensfire (talk) 22:58, 9 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yeah, it's probably a good idea. fr33kman 22:59, 9 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Request for CU created at Wikipedia:Requests_for_checkuser#Amansharma111. I've got a feeling that over half of the promotional articles I've tagged in the past 2-3 months are all from this sock farm.

There's no justification to delete this for "A4: The page is about a person, group, company, product or website, and does not claim notability". There was an RFD for it, so can't you delete it for that reason? Kk.urban (talk) 00:45, 11 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Please help me about a page change

Hello, I hope you are well. I have created a page name "Ario Nahavandi" and I used Language check Ai to make sure the context is in "Simple English" Format, but you have deleted the page. Another thing that was mentioned was notability, which I can understand as I carefully followed the "General notability guidelines" page to address the context and biography. Do you mind to tell me which part should to be edit or fixed then I can do it to get the page published?

I appreciate it, In advance.

Best Alanwhite12 (talk) 18:11, 11 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I took a look at the deleted page and it seems to me that you would need to have more references that support his notability. Right now there aren't enough sources that are independent, well-known, (i.e.:major national or international) , have a neutral point of view and have no conflict of interest. Well known national newspaper would be a good start. Well known magazines like Rolling Stone would also help establish his notability. If he was to be signed to a well-known record label this would make him notable on its own. I hope this helps, fr33kman 18:20, 11 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you so much, I will try to gather more recourses. Could you please tell me how i can return the page back to edit the references? it has been deleted, or should i just create a new page? thanks Alanwhite12 (talk) 21:57, 11 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Kendra Lust change

Hi fr33kman, I hope you're well, Regarding Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2023/Kendra Lust;
WP:ITSNOTABLE isn't a valid for keeping and whilst the subject does have articles on other projects it was deemed on EN (whom are very stringent) that she wasn't notable and as such was deleted there,
Also Eptalon hasn't provided any evidence of any notability - Pure Evil gave a valid reason for deletion and it's the Keepers job to counteract deletion claims with a valid reason to keep with proof which imho was not done,
Looking at it in a neutral way PureEvil's comment held the most weight and he provided more than just "Delete - Not notable" which is what Eptalon's !vote basically is,

Would you maybe reconsider your closure please ?, If not I'll head over to DRV but thought I'd ask first, Have a pleasant weekend fr33kman :),
Many thanks, Warm Regards, –Davey2010Talk 23:07, 13 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

No, I did my own research and did not rely on Eptalon's alone. The consensus was 50:50 for "reasons" so I did a tie-break and did the research myself and decided to keep. Please do take it to DRV if you feel otherwise. Thx :) fr33kman 23:25, 13 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
If any other admin wishes to overturn my desicion, I am fine with that. fr33kman 23:33, 13 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Okay brilliant, Could I further ask what research or what sources made you go with !keep?, I'm simply trying to better understand the reasoning behind it as you may have seen or found things I haven't or you may be aware of certain policies that I'm not, Many thanks, –Davey2010Talk 23:46, 13 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sure, apart from passing NACTOR which can be used to contribute to GNG there was the number of products that have been created using her persona such as a journal, posters, and other such material is not created for nobodies; the fact that ChatGPT knows who she is; articles in reliable sources that mention her[5],[6],Rolling Stone etc...; Being in The UK Sun; Many articles in Sportskeeda; Being charged by the US SEC[7] (that is in the news); and the sheer number of videos she's in, amongst other stuff that are on loads of other websites, and that's she's on other Wikipedia's, led me to believe she meets GNG. It's a straw that broke the camel's back scenario. There is just too much mention of her for her not to be notable. Hope this helps! :) fr33kman 01:29, 14 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hi, Many thanks for providing sources and for your analysis on this, I can now understand your closure and I actually partially agree with it, As she's not on EN I don't fully agree with it but you make some valid points and you have done due diligence in researching this and leaving your feedback which I appreciate a lot,

Fr33kman, Korail7409 recently has been the main target of Genshin LTA. This LTA made so many impersonation accounts or similar user name accounts of Korail7409, this is evident mis-block. This 37.235 is also frequent Genshin LTA IP. LR0725 (talk) 15:54, 21 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes, I was wondering about the situation. I blocked them due to the enwiki block and not because of the request. fr33kman 15:57, 21 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Did this guy make any "one strike"? WP:ONESTRIKE says user blocked indefinitely can be just blocked in Simple English Wikipedia only by one rule-breaking, but I think Korail7409 did not commit any rule breaking here... LR0725 (talk) 16:00, 21 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
A user blocked on another project can be blocked here with or without the onstrike. I found this edit to be unhelpful and the fact that they were blocked on enwiki for sockpupperty made me decide to block. Is there a specific reason you feel they should not be blocked? I'm willing to review. fr33kman 16:05, 21 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Surely. Korail7409 is jawiki extendedconfirmed user, and attacked by that Genshin LTA for long time. You can see that in many sock accounts' edits in many wikimedia projects. Maybe like history of User talk:Korail7409? Korail7409 is just a LTA victim. LR0725 (talk) 16:11, 21 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I've unblocked the user. I will keep an eye on the situation. fr33kman 16:12, 21 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Notability (academics) change

Can you provide a measure that could help determine whether an academic is notable, particularly in a non-Anglophone country with a different media ecosystem? I've heard people talk about some index related to how often people cite them. Kk.urban (talk) 17:41, 21 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It's a case-by-case basis. I've read what enwiki has to say about the subject and I suppose that could be used as a guideline. fr33kman 17:44, 21 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The devil does not come so fast when we think about him, as you come fast on the page. :-) Dear @Fr33kman I created Logan Keith Williams page two times. First time you delete it immediately, I could only see QD A4. Second time I created talk page first and mentioned that in my opinion how this subject is notable, you deleted also talk page with page. It is my request, please restore page, talk page and initiate an RfD. If community votes for delete. I myself nominate this for delete. Thanks.

I'm sorry but the subject is not notable. You must show why and how the person deserves a page on Wikipedia. I read the page and determined that it was not notable. Sorry if this upsets you, it's not personal. :) fr33kman 21:14, 27 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
After reviewing the page I've decided to undelete it and send it to RfD. You did state why the subject should be considered notable so I'm happy to undelete it. Good luck! :) fr33kman 21:19, 27 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

RfD nomination of Testing rfd change

An editor has requested deletion of Testing rfd, 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/2023/Testing rfd 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. fr33kman 07:51, 28 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

A Question change

Hey bro, why is it that Wikipedia has its own logo and it can't be used here? Also I have tried to copy a few image from Arabic Wikipedia to here but it doesn't work either? What's the matter?--Faraz Sualeh (talk) 11:53, 4 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Each version of Wikipedia chooses their own logo. The Simple English Wikipedia has chosen the one you see and has had it for almost 17 years. We like it. You are free to start another discussion on WP:ST to see if people want to update it, but we'll likely keep it. Hope this helps! fr33kman 12:28, 4 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Also, the simplewiki does not allow the local upload of images. All images must go on commons. fr33kman 12:29, 4 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hey i was not asking about the official Wikipedia logos, i was asking about local article related logos such as Logo of Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades that's available on En wiki which you can see here; but it can't be uploaded here, though, i learned about it from your second answer. Thanks Faraz Sualeh (talk) 15:40, 4 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
About once a year, I ask the community whether or not we want to allow the local uploading of images here. So far it's a 3-0 lose. I can ask again shortly. Best I can do. If you can see a picture on the Arabic wikipedia but can't use it here, it is because it must be uploaded locally on the Arabic wikipedia and not on commons. fr33kman 17:50, 4 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The main reason you can only see your logo on arwiki is that nether commons nor simplewiki allows the use of copyrighted images (ie: non-free images). fr33kman 17:59, 4 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Oh, Thanks for explanation, i got it👍🏻 Faraz Sualeh (talk) 18:54, 4 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi, I'd flagged that one as "some or all" being untrue as it was apparently created by a sock of en:Wikipedia:Sockpuppet_investigations/Oatsandcream. They've created the same page on enwiki in the past and it's been deleted.

Fair enough if you've checked it out, but this user has also been misrepresenting sources at the Humor Risk article here. They seem to enjoy embellishing stories about lost media. Belbury (talk) 15:09, 14 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi there @Fr33kman I really don’t understand what you mean by the page I created does not claim notability. If I may ask what makes this page non notable?

Please if you want somethings to be changed just undelete it so I can change it thanks. Gudwise (talk) 02:57, 18 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Your page does not show what the person has done to be considered as notable (famous) enough to have an article here. What major national/international awards have they been awarded. How many citations in major newspapers, magazines do they have etc. Please read WP:GNG for more information. fr33kman 03:24, 18 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
So do you mean News Ghana[10] is not a reliable/independent source ? Do you mean MENAFN is not a reliable/independent source and what about GhanaWeb[11] too?
He is a up and coming record producer.
so why don’t you consider? Gudwise (talk) 03:43, 18 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I actually did quite a bit more research on this one than normal. I can't find reliable sources. Those are sources that are available on the Internet, are cited in other reliable sources like other websites (who are themselves RS) and well-known national or international newspapers, journals and magazine. Being mentioned on the national or international news helps establish RS and N. CNN, Al-Jazeera, The Times of India etc., are all reliable sources as long as the subject is the main topic of the piece and not just mentioned as a 2 second side-line. I am, at the moment, researching a page that would list the major RS of India, Pakistan and South-East Asia asI don't think we have good enough coverage for this area of the world. fr33kman 13:55, 4 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
