Hi! The Telefongyár article contains translations from the Hungarian "Telefongyar" article. There are tons of English language references here: Can you move it back to the normal articles? I can add references too. --Durnheim (talk) 06:53, 4 March 2021 (UTC)

Durnheim If you add the references to the article, I'll move it back. Both Hungarian and English language references are acceptable. {{cite web}} might be useful for citing online sources. Elliot321 (talk | contribs) 06:54, 4 March 2021 (UTC)

DYK for Eli Savit

On 7 March 2021, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Eli Savit, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that in 2020, Eli Savit was elected the prosecuting attorney of Washtenaw County, Michigan, on a promise to abolish the cash bail system? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Eli Savit. You are welcome to check how many pageviews the nominated article or articles got while on the front page (here's how, Eli Savit), and if they received a combined total of at least 416.7 views per hour (ie, 5,000 views in 12 hours or 10,000 in 24), the hook may be added to the statistics page. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

Template names

Hello, Template names are supposed to be completely descriptive of their function and of their flow.

We are supposed to name them long, then create a shortcut to them that is succinct and memorable.

To that end, the long template name has a very germane shortcut name.

To nominate a template for deletion based on the longness of its name is contrary to the instructions for the naming conventions of templates.

Please, kindly withdraw your nomination on that basis.

Most respectfully - {{u|WikiWikiWayne}} {Talk} 15:06, 11 March 2021 (UTC)

WikiWikiWayne hi, my nomination was more based off of how the template is not used nor apparently useful - the naming was not the main issue. Feel free to comment at the TfD, though. Elli (talk | contribs) 03:06, 12 March 2021 (UTC)


Hi Elli! We had a brief chat over on Teahouse on artist notability. Did you find any time to look through the Draft:Brad_Walls? Thanks :) Bradwalls1992 (talk) 04:17, 9 March 2021 (UTC)

Bradwalls1992 sure, thanks for the reminder! (sorry, midterms have caught me to get a bit less responsive than I'd like) Elli (talk | contribs) 04:42, 9 March 2021 (UTC)
All good Elli! Bradwalls1992 (talk) 04:54, 9 March 2021 (UTC)
Bradwalls1992 so, here's the thing. I've removed a significant amount of sources that were in the article that were either redundant or from unreliable sources (see WP:FORBESCON for example). The main issue is that while the content in the "Career" section is well-sourced, it's not significant biographical coverage. The reference I've left in "Early life" would work if Aerial Photography Awards were a reliable source, but they aren't. Additionally, since they don't have an article, nor much coverage that I could find, it's unlikely that winning a category in the contest gives notability.
However, if you have any reliable source that gives that level of biographic coverage of you, that should be sufficient. Elli (talk | contribs) 05:03, 9 March 2021 (UTC)
Hi Elli. Thanks for reviewing and providing your comments. I have rebuilt the content solely focusing on style to pass WP:Artist. Many artists pages are less biographical (birth place, education etc) and focus on their significant artistic impact in society, a great example of this is Maria Svarbova. Given the similarities that we both share in regards to artistic presence, I find it hard how this would be declined. Awaiting your response Bradwalls1992 (talk) 21:48, 10 March 2021 (UTC)
Elli Has the re-work of the article now met the guidelines for publishing? Thanks Bradwalls1992 (talk) 05:15, 13 March 2021 (UTC)

Noem Picture

Hello @Elli: the photo you are claiming is not my original work on Kristi Noem is indeed my original work, was taken with my own devices. ChiggerPhotos (talk) 01:42, 26 March 2021 (UTC)

@ChiggerPhotos: hi, in that case could you provide where these were originally published? Since I found them in multiple online sources before you uploaded them here. Elli (talk | contribs) 01:45, 26 March 2021 (UTC)
@Elli: Absolutely. This was the first indoor sporting event with fans in the stands in the entire country since the pandemic broke out. God Bless Rodeo, God Bless South Dakota. I own the rights to this photo. ChiggerPhotos (talk) 01:52, 26 March 2021 (UTC)

@Elli: How would I do that? What would you suggest? Seems to be an assumption of bad faith here. Nonetheless, looks like the other photo which portrays Noem in a very poor light is "better" according to another user. How should I proceed? Thank you. ChiggerPhotos (talk) 02:04, 26 March 2021 (UTC)

@Elli: This was uploaded to Noem's official Facebook page on July 11, 2020 here. I supplied the photo to Noem's office and it has since been published. I was unaware of other organizations using this photo. ChiggerPhotos (talk) 02:11, 26 March 2021 (UTC)

Infobox football league season

Hello! Can you add an optional parameter for new teams. Which denotes which teams who promoted from the second tier in the league system you can't be promoted from Premier League to Premier League. Yours sincerely, Sondre -- (talk) 10:31, 3 April 2021 (UTC)

Sorry - not sure what change you're asking me to make. Elli (talk | contribs) 11:20, 3 April 2021 (UTC)

Regarding football league season

Hello! The change I wish you make is regarding the parameter concerning promotion. Teams can only be promoted from the second-tier to the first-tier and not from the first-tier to the first-tier. When i write in teams that are promoted to the Premier League in 1997/98 e.g. Bolton, Barnsley and Crystal Palace which are the right ones they can't be promoted to Premier League but from the First Division. New teams can fix that issue. A parameter for new teams for the season is that possible to add?. Yours sincerely, Sondre -- (talk) 12:08, 3 April 2021 (UTC)

Can you make your request at the relevant template and link me it? Elli (talk | contribs) 12:09, 3 April 2021 (UTC)

My link to the template that i proposed change

Hello! I meant the Template:Infobox football league season of course. Can you add a label concerning new teams for the season. Which concerns which teams which are promoted or relegated if any. Teams can't be promoted from the top-tier to the top-tier but teams can be relegated from the top-tier to the second-tier of the league system. Check the Swedish template for such information se:Mall:Infobox fotbollsligasäsong so you see that label there. When i write in the promoted teams e.g. Bolton, Barnsley and Crystal Palace in the 1997/98 season of the Premier League which are the right ones. Yours sincerely, Sondre -- (talk) 12:25, 3 April 2021 (UTC)

Restrictions never get lifted

My experience is that restrictions on Wikipedia never get lifted. In that ANI discussion there is one person who viciously attacked me by falsely characterizing what I did in April 2013. That is 8 years ago. There is no way to earn forgiveness on Wikipedia. It is denied and instead one is reattached and republished without end.John Pack Lambert (talk) 23:41, 16 April 2021 (UTC)

@Johnpacklambert: this is certainly not my experience, but I understand where you're coming from here. Elli (talk | contribs) 17:56, 17 April 2021 (UTC)

Not only do restrictions not get lifted, if I mess up and only wait 22 hours to nominate a new article for deletion someone opens an ANI against me. The clear intention of some is to destroy any contribution I make to Wikipedia. There is little other way to explain that one editor has nominated over 100 articles I created for deletion. There was at least one day he nominated 5 articles I created for deletion, and there were some weeks he nominated over 20 articles I created for deletion.

Please take a moment to review Wikipedia:Page mover for more information on this user right, especially the criteria for moving pages without leaving redirect. Please remember to follow post-move cleanup procedures and make link corrections where necessary, including broken double-redirects when suppressredirect is used. This can be done using Special:WhatLinksHere. It is also very important that no one else be allowed to access your account, so you should consider taking a few moments to secure your password. As with all user rights, be aware that if abused, or used in controversial ways without consensus, your page mover status can be revoked.

Köld deletion nomination

Hi, @Elli. I noticed that you made a statement in my direction, during the AfD discussion, that you "didn't mean to imply that I thought that albums need to be chart to be notable". I totally understand that. When I typed my sentence of "One thing I will say..." I felt that I had a limited ability to prevent that I was insinuating that about you. My attempt at mitigating that was by implicitly referencing the coverage concern at the end, with "...especially since the other concern..."

To summarize, I did not intentionally imply that you thought only charting albums should be on Wikipedia, but I understand why you felt the need to make your defense of such.

Anyways, while I expressed my opinion to keep the Köld page in a strong way, I can appreciate that you did help spotlight legitimate issues with the article. I have also bought a CD copy of the album, in hopes that I can perhaps add information from its liner notes to the page.

Thanks, and keep up the good work. Mungo Kitsch (talk) 05:35, 30 April 2021 (UTC)

@Mungo Kitsch: all good - just wanted to clarify my position. And I'm glad the article has been improved! Deletion is a last resort - and while I didn't see other options - I'm glad others did. Elli (talk | contribs) 05:42, 30 April 2021 (UTC)

No problem! HOnestly, saying something like that is much better than the usual "Please remember to sign on talk pages using ~~~~" Blaze The Wolf | Proud Furry and Wikipedia Editor (talk) 19:59, 30 April 2021 (UTC)

New teams in the football league season template

Hello! Is it possible to add a new teams parameter to the infobox football league season template. It should tell who are new teams in the country's top-tier division. The teams can't be promoted from the Premier League to the Premier League but they can be promoted from the second-tier and other-tier divisions. Yours sincerely, Sondre -- (talk) 13:14, 2 May 2021 (UTC)

I'm really not sure if I'm the best person to ask about this - I'd encourage you to test things out in the template's sandbox to figure it out yourself, then when it all works, submit an edit request. Elli (talk | contribs) 15:01, 2 May 2021 (UTC)

Discontent Content Issue 3


Hi Elli, I've noticed that you have been tagging some user subpages marked with {{Userspace draft}} for deletion using {{db-afc}}. Please note that WP:G13 only applies to userspace if it is tagged with {{AFC submission}} or contains article wizard placeholder text only, and not for actual draft attempts. WP:ABANDON#Stale userspace drafts suggests how to handle the type of drafts you have been tagging. plicit 03:49, 17 May 2021 (UTC)

@Explicit: thanks, I've been generally avoiding the more promising drafts, or ones by editors who have edited semi-recently. For ones that have some significant amount of content, I'll take the appropriate action listed there. Elli (talk | contribs) 03:53, 17 May 2021 (UTC)

Hey Elli, this is about Genshin Impact

I changed the text, from predecessor to last game they made, because predecessor usually means the last game in the same series as the next game, which honkai isn't isnt apart of the genshin impact series, only relating to it with who made it, would you agree with me ? EzeeWiki (talk) 21:36, 21 May 2021 (UTC)

@EzeeWiki: I replied to you at Ferret's talkpage. Your edit is fine, though the original wording was also fine. Elli (talk | contribs) 21:37, 21 May 2021 (UTC)

thankyou for your input and thoughts, i just wanted to clarify that i only changed it because predecessor usually means the game that came before in the series, like a successor is the next game in the series as its taking over as succession.. EzeeWiki (talk) 21:40, 21 May 2021 (UTC)

@EzeeWiki: yeah, I just think it's clear that in that context, "predecessor" is referring to "games developed by MiHoYo" - which is a series, in a way. Elli (talk | contribs) 21:41, 21 May 2021 (UTC)

well, genshin is a different franchise to what honkai is, but if regarding to the company its a series in spirit i guess, but in context to the game itself, its not its predecessor, i think my edit was okay, ill just leave as is now. — Preceding unsigned comment added by EzeeWiki (talkcontribs) 21:44, 21 May 2021 (UTC)

@Reesashukla: hi - I'm not sure your article subject meets Wikipedia's guidelines on notability. However you write can't change that, they need more significant coverage in reliable sources. Elli (talk | contribs) 12:58, 25 May 2021 (UTC)
eli i added all print media/newspapers articles and citic's articles but they are in punjabi language because artist is punjabi celebrity. if russian, american, or germen contributers are not able read punjabi language. is that means my article is gonna delete? because they are unable to read the sources. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Reesashukla (talkcontribs) 13:37, 25 May 2021 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) @Reesashukla: As @Vaticidalprophet: mentions in their AFD comment (Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Deep Datewas and then the bottom comment) the main issue is that the sources you cite are screenshots of articles, without any context. This makes it hard to A) assess if the source is a reliable source, which are required for articles about living people and B) makes it incredibly hard to run them through a translation software, which makes reading and therefore assesing them impossible for people who don't speak the language. If you could replace the screenshots with links to the source of the screenshots this would help a great deal, although even then it is not guarenteed the article will be kept. Hope this helps, -- Asartea Talk | Contribs 15:15, 25 May 2021 (UTC)
Asartea problem is that print newspapers has no e-paper websites and state dominated newspaper mostly don't keep archive of 4-5 years. they keep only for 1 month. there is links available for old news, we can get old news only in print methods. only international agencies keep archive of decades in their servers. so that's why i need a good way to sort it out. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Reesashukla (talkcontribs) 16:38, 25 May 2021 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) @Reesashukla: The issue is that without a link to the published source, or some way of accessing it via a newspaper archive, there's no way for other editors to verify the source. Do you have information regarding the publication titles, so that someone could at least attempt to find the articles somewhere? If not, I fear that the article won't be suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia. The issue isn't that the sources aren't in English, the issue would be verification that the source was indeed published by whatever organisation you claim, and that it supports the information in the article. Note that I'm not necessarily doubting that as such, merely saying that at present we have no way to verify it. firefly ( t · c ) 18:18, 25 May 2021 (UTC)
