Old translations in user space[edit]

Hi, you closed Wikipedia:Miscellany for deletion/User DancingwiththeAllstars creations as delete because of Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia (no attribution).

I am finding related pages in user space (mainly user talk), similar drafts in Spanish about dancing and wrestling shows:

Can these be speedily deleted if they are unattributed translations of English articles?

Other pages do not seem to be translations of English articles, but drafts on sub-topics of doubtful notability e.g. individual seasons or spin-off shows. I don't know why they would use enwiki to do this in Spanish. – Fayenatic London 11:14, 30 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Fayenatic london I would say yes. I would use batch deletion saying something like "[[Wikipedia:Criteria for speedy deletion#G6. Technical deletions|WP:CSD#G6 housekeeping and routine (non-controversial) cleanup, possible Wikipedia:Criteria for speedy deletion#G12. Unambiguous copyright infringement. See user for more information." I'd do it now but I'm on the way out the house. I'll be back later and check. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Huliva 21:04, 30 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Flair Accident and Incidents[edit]

Hey there,

New ti Wikipedia but added Accidents and Incidents to Flair Airlines after a runway Excursion in November. You said the incident wasn't notable, but many airlines have their runway excursions listed in Wikipedia. Feels like this is more of a matter of your opinion than a matter of Wikipedia consistency. Readsmorethanwrites (talk) 19:49, 6 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Minor runway excursions are not notable and the fact that other articles contains them is an indication they should be removed. Adding runway excursions would add multiple incidents to every airline. It's not encyclopedic. As to it being my opinion please read Wikipedia:WikiProject Airlines/page content#Incidents and accidents and Wikipedia:WikiProject Aviation/Aircraft accidents and incidents. Also incidents are not normally presented in table format. Ahunt do you have an opinion on this? CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Huliva 23:02, 6 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks for the ping there. Yes I agree, runway excursions are generally minor incidents, with little or no damage and no injuries or deaths. The most common case is a slightly high, or hot approach on a marginal length, wet runway and the nosewheel ends up off the end, in the mud. Embarrassing, but the aircraft is usually back in service quickly, after a deplane, tow and inspection. These are WP:RUNOFTHEMILL as incidents go and in most cases just not notable for an encyclopedia article. As noted, if other articles have similar non-notable incidents they should be removed. Most are added by well-intentioned, but new editors, who just assume if it made the local news that it belongs in Wikipedia. See WP:NOTNEWS. - Ahunt (talk) 00:16, 7 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks for linking the project info! I know that it’s been a couple weeks and the aircraft hasn’t flown since, it’s still in Kitchener. The full aircraft also left the runway, so I’ll keep an eye on any damage reports and update from there.

Table formatting was copied from Air Canada I believe. Readsmorethanwrites (talk) 05:26, 8 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi there, Happy New Year. I was wondering if I could trouble you to look at a user who is edit warring to spam this article with an unsourced TV show espisode. The user has been warned repeatedly at User talk:Harry Whe for edit warring, adding unsourced text and what looks like an undeclared COI as well on his talk page, as he has claimed to have inside information from the show's director in his edit summaries. His contribution history seem to show that most of his edits are to promote the same TV across a wide range of aircraft accident articles. He has now made four reverts to this article, even after all the warnings from two different editors. If you need detailed diffs I can provide them.

Photo ideas[edit]

Hi, I know this is really out of the blue, and please feel free to ignore this if it's too much, but I was wondering if I could ask a favour of you. I created an article on an Inuit politician, Simonie Michael, and I brought it to GA. You've already helped to improve this article, bringing it to my attention that I didn't have the grammar quite right on Inuk/Inuuk/Inuit (you can still see traces of that conversation on the Talk Page). Now I've decided to begin the push to get the article to FA. One big area that I know the article could improve in is images, but it's just so darn hard to even figure out where to begin in getting relevant photos. If I Google Image search Simonie Michael I see two super grainy photos of him (basically the same photo), supposedly from some really old CBC article, but the article itself no longer has those images so I don't even know who they belong to! And the only other existing photo is a sculpture of his, which even if I could use it, wouldn't really make the article much better. So, here's where the favour comes in. I know that Cambridge Bay is extremely distant from Iqaluit, where Simonie Michael lived, but you're the only active Wikipedian I know of with a connection to Nunavut, so I was just wondering if you might have any connections or any ideas that might help to get a good photograph of anything related to Simonie Michael. I doubt we can get a photo of the man himself, but maybe someone could take a picture of a building similar to the ones that Simonie Michael's company built, or a photo of Simonie Michael's boat at Apex beach, or anything more related than the random pictures of towns that I've currently populated the page with. Any ideas help! Thanks so much for any thought you might be able to give this. - Astrophobe (talk) 15:00, 3 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I've messaged a friend on Quora in the hopes that he might have something. He live in Resolute Bay, Nunavut in the 1960s. I'll see what he has to say. I'll try a couple of Facebook groups.

How 2-day-old articles violate the (new-ish?) 90-day guideline? Did you decide to undo all of my moves without looking at the articles or talk on the user's page? Articles associated with Ashley Flowers have a history of PR work. This user seemed to be not involved with that, but I'd encouraged them to take the 1-2 source articles on Anatomy of Murder, CounterClock, and Audiochuck to something passable before taking the articles to deletion, which is within guidelines, is it not?

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. This is a notice to inform you that a tag has been placed on Ayit Aviation requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing little or no context to the reader.

Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

See Category:Women's Super League teams. I have seen "team name" as a disambiguation to both a women's and men's team but not many and I can't find one right now.

You changed the page from crimean tatar gypsy to crimean tatar romani, but that is exactly the mistake. This group does not call themselves Romani. Therefore the term gypsy was correct.

Take a look at Wikipedia:Drafts. There are instructions there. Look at other biographies on Wikipedia to see how they are done. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Huliva 16:55, 7 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Lake City High School[edit]

Hey, thanks for your cleanup of the moves, etc. on Lake City High School. Your approach was clearly cleaner than mine.

I have one question, though, and that's on the reinsertion of the hatnote on Lake City High School (South Carolina). My understanding is that such a hatnote is not to be used under WP:NAMB ("preferable not to have a hatnote when the name of the article is not ambiguous"). Do I misunderstand that? TJRC (talk) 22:42, 8 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

You're correct. I don't think I'd read that before. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Huliva 22:51, 8 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Great, thanks. TJRC (talk) 23:00, 8 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Hello, I wanted to tell you about Kukherd article

The city of Kukherdharang with the merger of the village of Kukherd and the village of Harang according to the official approval of the government on 25 February 1391 in Bastak County of Hormozgan province was formed Arman.Farsi57 (talk) 08:02, 16 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

That should be discussed at the articles talk page. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Huliva 15:23, 17 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Move war[edit]

I presume that this move should be reverted, given it was made after your level 4 warning. — Qwerfjkltalk 11:46, 22 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks. Moved it back CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Huliva 17:54, 22 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

David Wolfe (actor)[edit]

I suggest deleting the current 'David Wolfe (actor)' page, as it is about the person known at some point in his career as David Bauer, but with some inaccurate data, and is available on the wiki. Rigg (talk) 03:13, 23 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

You should have brought that up at the talk page. CambridgeBayWeather (solidly non-human), Uqaqtuq (talk), Huliva 18:08, 23 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Heading to Cambridge Bay[edit]

Hello, I'll be in town and working at CHARS 2 weeks from now. I was wondering if I could meet up with you while I'm there. Cheers, OhanaUnitedTalk page 21:03, 23 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Of course. Just email when you are in and we can arrange it. Looking forward to it. CambridgeBayWeather (solidly non-human), Uqaqtuq (talk), Huliva 21:14, 23 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Just realised that was badly worded. I meant email me the date you are coming in not after you arrive. CambridgeBayWeather (solidly non-human), Uqaqtuq (talk), Huliva 15:51, 24 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Administrators' newsletter – June 2023[edit]

News and updates for administrators from the past month (May 2023).

Guideline and policy news

  • Following an RfC, editors indefinitely site-banned by community consensus will now have all rights, including sysop, removed.
  • As a part of the Wikimedia Foundation's IP Masking project, a new policy has been created that governs the access to temporary account IP addresses. An associated FAQ has been created and individual communities can increase the requirements to view temporary account IP addresses.

Technical news

  • Bot operators and tool maintainers should schedule time in the coming months to test and update their tools for the effects of IP masking. IP masking will not be deployed to any content wiki until at least October 2023 and is unlikely to be deployed to the English Wikipedia until some time in 2024.


  • The arbitration case World War II and the history of Jews in Poland has been closed. The topic area of Polish history during World War II (1933-1945) and the history of Jews in Poland is subject to a "reliable source consensus-required" contentious topic restriction.

Palak Jain[edit]

Hi @CambridgeBayWeather, I hope you're doing well. I tagged few articles related to Palak Jain, but I found all of them are different, but the only relation is that they're Indian television actresses.

Hence you can verify and revert your edit. And Courtesy ping to @GB fan and @Bbb23. Thanks, stay safe. C1K98V (💬 ✒️ 📂) 15:15, 7 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

However, it should be "Palak Jain (actress)" without the capital. And I'm not sure if any of them are notable and the Palak Jain (Actress) was created by a sockpuppet. CambridgeBayWeather (solidly non-human), Uqaqtuq (talk), Huliva 15:29, 7 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hi @CambridgeBayWeather, I was trying to convey that we can't redirect all 4 BLPs to the same target, just because they're not notable yet. Thanks C1K98V (💬 ✒️ 📂) 15:47, 7 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Are you suggesting that Palak Jain (Actress) and Palak Jain (actress) be deleted? Other than the first none are actual articles. The second is a redirect and the last two don't exist. Given that the only notable one is the first then the sensible thing is to redirect the others to her. CambridgeBayWeather (solidly non-human), Uqaqtuq (talk), Huliva 16:33, 7 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@CambridgeBayWeather, let me simplify, we should disambiguate Palak Jain based on their birth year. I'm not going into notability aspect. Here as we know their are 4 different living person named Palak Jain and all are associated with the entertainment field. And only Palak Jain is notable enough to have article on Wikipedia. So we should redirect the rest 3 blps to their debut tv series article. But changing the redirect location of Palak Jain (Actress) to Palak Jain is wrong as they both are different. This is all my suggestions and I'm not requesting or proposing deletion. Thanks C1K98V (💬 ✒️ 📂) 16:54, 7 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Better to redirect all of them to the existing article as Guddan Tumse Na Ho Payega has no real information on Jain. The fourth doesn't say what her first role was and Mann Sundar has no real information on Jain. And Yeh Pyaar Nahi Toh Kya Hai has no real information on Jain. Plus there is no real way to tell if they are different women. Plus all the articles would need multiple hat notes. Is there any sources to show all four birth dates? CambridgeBayWeather (solidly non-human), Uqaqtuq (talk), Huliva 17:23, 7 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Um, I'm only here because I was pinged. My only comment is that I removed the DOB from Palak Jain because it was unsourced. Back to you CBW.--Bbb23 (talk) 18:19, 7 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Bbb23 Yes I pinged both of you as a courtesy and there is nothing wrong if you removed unsourced DOB. It's just that CBW and GB both changed the redirect location Palak Jain (Actress) to Palak Jain which is wrong, but the EmausBot edit is the correct. So that's my point of starting the discussion. C1K98V (💬 ✒️ 📂) 06:25, 8 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@CambridgeBayWeather the articles about the series would contain information related to the series but not in depth about the actor. There are unreliable sources available for DOB, not for all. Also if you go through the sources I listed above beside articles, you can easily understand they're all different person. Thanks C1K98V (💬 ✒️ 📂) 06:39, 8 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sortable dates[edit]

Dear CambridgeBayWeather,

Could you please keep the dates from the sortable table you edited on Electrotachyscope sortable? It's no problem if you want to have the dates written out, as long as they remain sortable.

Thanks. Joortje1 (talk) 05:05, 8 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Joortje1 Yes. I'm just off to sleep. I'll fix them in them in the morning my time. There's a template for it. CambridgeBayWeather (solidly non-human), Uqaqtuq (talk), Huliva 05:20, 8 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Great. Hope you've got a good night's rest. No need to hurry. I found the template and made a start on the page to try it, but it's a long list. Are ther any tools to automate a process like this? Joortje1 (talk) 06:55, 8 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Got them sorted. CambridgeBayWeather (solidly non-human), Uqaqtuq (talk), Huliva 14:53, 8 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
