Ica stones copyvio[edit]

I've documented it on the article talk page. There's probably more, I just gave a couple of example sections. It's not subtle. Kalkin (talk) 22:27, 1 May 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Quick note[edit]

I'm not a "barnstar" type, but just wanted to drop in and pass on thanks aplenty for your work referencing unreferenced articles! Such unglamorous and important noncontroversial work is about as selfless as it gets around here, it clears the way for easier future expansion. and I really do admire those that still take the hard road to improve rather than the delete or ignore attitude. aliasd·U·T 22:35, 10 May 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank you :) Jeepday (talk) 11:21, 11 May 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Can I ask you to take a second look at this potential copyright infringement? The "In the War" section from the original version has clearly been copied from [1] with a few minor changes, making it a derivative work and hence copyrighted. And the editor who wrote that article has also added a large number of articles deleted as copyvios from the same website: Adolf "Addi" Glunz, Viktor Bauer, Heinz Ebeling, Herbert Bachnick, Johann Badum, Günther Bahr, Eduard Tratt, Ernst Börngen, Johann Badum, Ernst Düllberg, Friedrich Geisshardt, Günther Specht, Hans Fuß, Hans Götz, Hans-Joachim Birkner, Heinrich Höfemeier and Heinz Golinski.

  • Thank you for the note, you are correct. On second review I found segments like "before being withdrawn to Germany for rest and re-equipment in late October" completely identical in both the article and the source [2]. I removed the section. Jeepday (talk) 22:48, 25 May 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks for the barnstar. I think I may have brought this up with you before, but have you thought about using bots that sort the unreferenced articles into categories by project? {{WPHawaii}} uses unref=yes, and if we could get a bot to populate Category:Unreferenced Hawaii articles with that flag, it would help us focus on the task at hand. Viriditas (talk) 13:41, 28 May 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Yes I think you did mention it before. You might make a request at Wikipedia:Bot requests and see what happens. At Wikipedia:Unreferenced articles we are working the oldest unreferenced articles, they tend to have been abandoned and/or belong to projects that are abandoned so I am not sure what another category would do. The only other project that has expressed an interest similar to yours is Wikipedia:WikiProject Law. You could probably get a bot to place the unref=yes where there is {{WPHawaii}} and a {{unreferenced}}, or {{refimprove}}. Jeepday (talk) 22:04, 28 May 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    • Thanks for the tip. I'll still continue to help out with the current focus. In fact, I'll spend some time on it tonight. Viriditas (talk) 09:04, 29 May 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi, I was using an article in BMJ as source and found a letter to the editor referenced in the article. I am not sure if this letter to the editor of the British Medical Journal published in BMJ can be used as RS or not. As far as I know articles published in BMJ can be used as RS, but not sure about letters to the editor published in BMJ. Do you have any idea if this RS or not? Otolemur crassicaudatus (talk) 01:40, 31 May 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • I would say it looks reliable to me. Considering both where it is published and the fact that the letter has references it looks very good. I would use it as a reference and if someone chalanges it, go from there. But I don't think it would be challenged. Jeepday (talk) 01:45, 31 May 2008 (UTC)!Reply[reply]
Thank you. I am trying to make the initial draft for an article. I have added much information from this article, will add more references. Do you think User:Otolemur_crassicaudatus/Anti-tobacco_movement_in_Nazi_Germany#Measures is copyvio? Most of the information comes from this reference, but I have changed the semantics greatly. I will use some other references also for this section. Otolemur crassicaudatus (talk) 01:53, 31 May 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It looks ok to me on the copyvio question. It also looks like a great candidate for Template talk:Did you know when you get it posted. Keep up the good work. Jeepday (talk) 02:02, 31 May 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

WrestleMania X-Seven edits[edit]

The reason I made the changes to WrestleMania X-seven are verifiable by a combination of looking through the Pro Wrestling Illustrated, it's yearly Pro Wrestling Almanac, and the actual video releases of the events themselves as well as several WWF/E magazine articles. All edits I have made to the WrestleMania articles that I have made are from researching the events as thoroughly as possible, and correcting myself when I notice a mistake made in an edit. Frankly I find it aggravating that people are going around undoing edits to the notes section of the WrestleMania articles after I have made the effort of making sure this information is as accurate as possible, seemingly arbitrarily for no other reason than for the sake of doing so.—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

Glitch City.[edit]

Greetings Jeepday.

Yeah, sorry for the 3 reverts, I've not edited wikipedia much before, let alone got stuck in an edit war, so I was unaware of it.

The problem is that the pokemon games in question have a number of bugs. I'm not a pokemon fan, but the bugs themselves are quite interesting from a programming and gaming perspective. They may or may not warrant their own pages, but they do warrant inclusion at least on the page about these pokemon games.

Redirects are being used as a kind of covert deletion here, where you get redirected from the Glitch City page to a page that doesn't mention Glitch City at all.

I feel Artichoker has been uncivil in the technical sense, accusing me of vandalism at every oppurtunity. All I want is some note on an aspect of the game that I feel is of some general interest.

Glitch City nominated for deletion[edit]

Hi Jeepday, I have nominated Glitch City for deletion. The entry can be found here. This was my first time going through the AfD process, did I do it correctly.

You did well, I finished by posting it to Today's AfD log so the community can see it. Lets see what happens over the next few days. Also notice step 4 on the template you placed on Glitch City has a message to post to editors so they will know where to go, you should post it least on User talk:MKULTRA333 and User talk:Legion fi plus anyone else in the edit history of the article that is still active on wikipedia.

Third opinion on "in universe" template.[edit]

Hi, Jeepday. If you have the time, an outside opinion would be handy on a contentious template on the Glitch City page. Since it is up for deletion anyway, I think an inappropriate template biases views of the article, but have been unable to resolve the issue with the user who reverts them.

I posted for help on the Request For Comment page, but don't know if there'll be any response before the decision to delete the page or not is reached.

Anyhow, you're probably too busy, but on the off chance you have the time, it would be good to have an outside perspective here [3]

Well..I still don't agree. For the couple of hours maximum the copyvio is visible it still doesn't seem worth it to blank it and only causes more work. If Google and youtube had the same speed, no one would complain about copyvio's there. And when you delete a whole bunch, a couple of clicks are still annoying if you have to do that every time. Just my opinion of course. I guess a discussion should be started (if people care) on WT:CSD, since over there are the speedy deleting admins. Garion96 (talk) 12:46, 12 July 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Your new Genesse dab page[edit]

Greetings, your new Genesse page seems to be little more than an incorrect way to spell the existing Genesee disambiguation page.

Speedy deletion of SeisQuaRe[edit]

Dear Jeepday I am sorry to disturb you with this article.

Why did I write it to the Community?

First, I wrote it to inform a community of the existence of this firm. I agree that it could be seen as advertising but in this case why my article was deleted and not those about the Seisquare competitors like CGV Veritas, Halliburton or Schlumberger in the field of the seismic and its analysis. When you talk about a firm, a land or anything, you make it living and you advertise about it. I invite you to look at the following list and to explain the difference between information and advertising

Secondly, I wrote it to inform the community of the new tool this firm have brought to the seismic analysis. Before, the job was just to look at wave going down and up the soil. With its technology, the analysis is thinner. That why some majors like Total, Petrobras, Statoil trust this little firm (turnover 2M€) as well large big companies like CGV Veritas, Halliburton or Schlumberger.

Third, I wrote it because the method and the technic using by this firm, quite new, can give a second life to the oil fields. With it you can see where you have to put the pumps and where you have to put the injectors. You can ameliorate the percent of the oil pumped from the field. While drilling you can reduce the percent of the dry wells.

I did not finish this article.

By deleting this article we do not give to the community access to the information, you let the large firm (like Coca-Cola, McDonald's, Total, LVMH,...) alone and do not give a chance to the small.

Rules are not made for one; rules are made for all of us.

Thank you for reading my English (which is not good) and understanding my position.

Cordially yours,

      • I had intended to not block at all as there was insufficient warning. You posted for a block after giving only a single warning, which was not a final warning (If you intend only a single warning use {{uw-vandalism4im}}). There was both constructive [4] editing and inappropriate editing [5] on going. with a recent history of highly proper editing [6]. There is a long block history, but it has been several months since the last block expired, the IP is registered to a corporation, presumably with several users. There were also lags in the time between vandal edits, which appeared to be intentional. So 3 days seemed like an appropriate compromise between not blocking and blocking. Long enough to get the attention of the current vandal without severally impacting the constructive editor at the same IP. The goal is to stop on going vandalism and correct the behavior, while encouraging constructive edits. Hopefully I made the best judgment call that will encouraging constructive edits. If I am wrong the IP can and will be blocked again later. If I am right we should see several more constructive edits in the future. Jeepday (talk) 11:34, 12 July 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

In your edit to Xander you tagged it as being unreferenced. Is it really appropriate to expect disambiguation pages to have references? --Jc3s5h (talk) 05:02, 27 July 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Disambiguation pages, that only provide direction to other articles don't need references as they are not asserting anything, only providing enough information to identify the correct article. But in the case of Xander two assertions are made about the name those do require references so I tagged them with {{fact}} for clarification, nothing else does so I removed the {{Unreferenced}} [7]. I also added {{disambig|given name}} which puts that article into Categories: Disambiguation pages & Given names. Jeepday (talk) 01:13, 29 July 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

On the same note - quite a few of the IPs being blocked recently for the "anon-talk" spamming are in fact open proxies - put the IP into Google and it's usually pretty clear. If they are, you might want to think about blocking them for a longer period rather than just 24 hours - I'll leave it to your discretion, though.

CiterSquad -- additional bot help[edit]

Hi Jeepday. I signed up for CiterSquad and have handled a couple hundred articles now. I have a question that would apply to the c. 30,000 articles recently identified as unsourced by Eric9bot AND also to the thousands that were unsourced when created but have been either minimally addressed by addition of some verifiable source or have been identified with an {{unsourced}} tag: Might it be possible to specify (then write) a bot that would help us by doing a cross-reference of ALL these articles to the name of the WP editor who created them? If a Pareto distribution holds, it seems likely that some editors, perhaps in good faith and unknowingly, have created and are creating a large number of these New articles that do not meet the Wikipedia core guideline of verfiability. Only then would it be relatively easy to send them a friendly suggestion like that contained in {{uw-unsor1}}. I'm trying to think of something that might help us also, in addition to the work of the CS and UA projects, get to the root of the problem (new creation of unreferenced articles) rather than only dealing with the symptoms (tagging and referencing other editor's articles that should not have, by policy, been created. Any bot I am thinking of would only do the identification step; i.e. the bot output could be list with the name of editors who have created (say, more than 3 or 5 or ?) these articles and a rough distribution of when the articles were created (say, by quarter: 2008Q3, 2008Q4, 2009Q1, etc.) Any use of this list for tagging with {{uw-unsor1}} would be done by human editors, as with the CS and UA projects. What do you think? N2e (talk) 13:33, 2 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

N2e, You have some good thoughts there, see User talk:Erik9bot#New thought for ongoing unreferenced query, Most of the articles in the current set are from 2001 to 2004 when references were not really required. Currently at least minimal references are being added to most new articles through the work of Wikipedia:Recent changes patrol and others. I am hopping that after we get all the old stuff tagged then we can work the old stuff from Wikipedia:Unreferenced articles, and Wikipedia:CiterSquad can work on helping new editors with adding references and improving new articles. Jeepday (talk) 11:58, 4 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Why don't you consider taking part in the hard work of actually finding cites rather than splattering tags? Some of us are dissenting from your view that this is an acceptable activity, and I want an acknowledgement from you that our view has some merit -- or else just tell me that I am crazy along with the rest of us. Thank you, Antandrus (talk) 00:46, 3 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Antandrus, You keep talking about about going out and referencing articles, but so far I have only see you actually add references one [8], I repeat my offer to you to join Wikipedia:Unreferenced articles and actually go find some references for articles that really need them. With the energy you have spent talking about adding references, you could have finished the current Category, which only had 146 left at the last count. Jeepday (talk) 11:49, 4 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks for the thoughtful reply Jeepday, and for your support of the item as an interesting idea. I'll be hanging back for a while due to the hornet's nest that has been stirred up over the CiterSquad project -- awaiting community consensus before proceeding.

Antandrus, to your question: YES, I frequently add citations to articles I work on, and on those I stumble upon that are in my area of interest or expertise. These actions however are orthogonal to other actions that I also choose take to tag unreferenced material. WP:Verfiability is not optional. Policy is clear, it is up to the editor who wants to retain material in Wikipedia to get it cited with verifiable sources; it is NOT WP policy that every editor who stumbles upon significant unreferenced material must stop their lives and endeavor to improve THAT article. So I tag it and move on. Seems a simple courtesy to flag it for a month or two to see if "the community" cares enough about an article before material is deleted for being unsourced. N2e (talk) 23:22, 4 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Belated reply to OP. It would be best to scan the most recent monthly unref category for editors who may be adding a lot of unsourced material currently. Jeepday: most of the articles in the Erik9bot cat were created 2006/7 - but they do go back to March 2001. Rich Farmbrough, 01:04, 10 October 2009 (UTC).Reply[reply]

Glencullen, County Mayo[edit]

I noticed you proposed to have the article Glencullen, County Mayo deleted. Reason being you couldn't find any proof of its existence. Well, even a google search will provide you with countless examples it does exist. It is a townland so it is really small and unlike Glencullen in County Dublin it does not have a turbulent history. If you google just on Glencullen chances are you won't find anything about Glencullen in County Mayo on the first 50 results. Glencullen is now almost deserted and the school is no longer but it once belonged to Glencullen estate as Census records show. The national school was also founded around the time of the estate and is now deserted leaving just the building. Glencullen is now the place of a State forest in Glencullen, near Ballycastle, County Mayo. Jorgenpfhartogs (talk) 07:44, 10 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Mississippi River campaigns in the American Civil War[edit]

The article Mississippi River campaigns in the American Civil War is one of the 100 oldest articles tagged as unreferenced. Do you have any references you can add to the article? In my research (very breif) I find only one campaign, lead by General Fremont. If I Reference it I would strip it to a stub and move it back to Mississippi campaign, You have shown some interest in the article, so I wanted to offer you the chance to address it before I do. Jeepday (talk) 23:31, 4 September 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I would just as soon see the article deleted -- is there a deletion category for "bad idea, and everyone has lost interest"? I stated my reasons for why the article is mis-focused in my talk page comments of three years ago. All of the campaigns listed in this tiny article are covered in a lot more detail in Western Theater of the American Civil War (although I will have to admit that that article, while having a lot of references, has very few in-line citations as of yet, so I cannot suggest that you simply mine that article for citations).

New Proposals[edit]

Hey Jeepday, User:N2e recently replied to our thread on Talk:State. I don't know that the technicality we addressed previously has been adequately accommodated, so I made a proposal on article title change. Do you think you could give me your thoughts? Or perhaps you can think of a new title? I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks. Night w (talk) 04:02, 28 September 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks very much for your help on the milk paint article and especially for adding refs and fixing my mistakes. Are you interested at all in fish decoys? :) Have a great weekend. ChildofMidnight (talk) 23:55, 24 October 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Your welcome and Thanks for starting the milk paint article, I came across it because I was researching non-toxic paints for pet abodes. It was a very helpful start on my research. I don't have much interest in fish decoys, is there anything in particular that you need help with? Jeepday (talk) 13:00, 25 October 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

IP vandal[edit]

I didn't bother contacting him because it would have been a waste of time; the IP has effectively been doing this for the last three months and refuses to communicate. The only reason he stopped the last time is because the page had been protected and then he was blocked for doing it later on. I was hoping that would be the end of it, but he's going back to doing exactly what got him blocked the last time and I have no reason to believe telling him to stop will be any more effective this time. HalfShadow (talk) 00:49, 9 November 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • I understand and appreciate that, next time give a level four warning {{uw-vandalism4}} and report the next edit. Generally we only block IP's for a few hours, the goal is to stop ongoing vandalism. Before you have an IP block of months you need to have a history of shorter blocks with good warnings. Jeepday (talk) 00:54, 9 November 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

User looks more like a newb who didn't know what he was doing and was bitten by Cluebot than an actual malicious vandal. Could we unblock and work on directing him to places to get help editing correctly? Just seeking your input as the blocking admin. Thanks! --Jayron32 04:26, 9 November 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Thank you for the nomination. I will read up, and construct some answers for the three questions. I'll come back to you when I am satisfied with the content.  Ronhjones  (Talk) 23:13, 10 November 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • You are welcome. You may post the nomination at WP:RFA yourself the directions are at WP:RFA/N. If you would prefer I post, just let me know, but it is completely acceptable to post the nomination yourself once you are ready. Jeepday (talk) 23:19, 10 November 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
OK, I see what is necessary to do. Just been checking my diary at work - I am at Glaxo (300 miles away) for two days next week, so I think I need to hold until I'm back, so I can be sure to be available to answer any questions - I'm back thursday night (19th), I'll sumbit it when I get home that night - then I will be able to log on for the next 7 nights.  Ronhjones  (Talk) 16:12, 11 November 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Serial vandalism[edit]

Hi Jeepday, Fully understand the logic but when you have a serial vandal who goes on a 4 minute blitz of disrupting editing are there any sanctions one can consider?Tmol42 (talk) 13:13, 29 November 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

HAC redirect to Nosocomial infection[edit]

Why does this redirect exist? Most HACs are due to trauma, according to the HAC table. There are a bit over 5000 diagnoses which are HAC-related. Almost all of them are HAC 5, "Falls and Trauma". So what's up here, please? - Denimadept (talk) 14:59, 11 December 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

In fact, I thought I had an article listing the HACs. Was that deleted? I don't remember. - Denimadept (talk) 15:01, 11 December 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

On the Disambig page HAC there is listing Hospital Acquired Condition which redirects to Nosocomial infection. I am not sure what redirect other then the above you might be talking about. If you are talking about Hospital Acquired Condition which redirects to Nosocomial infection, I don't understand the question. JeepdaySock (AKA, Jeepday) 16:20, 14 December 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'm asking why this redirect exists. Most HACs are not due to infection, but to trauma. - Denimadept (talk) 20:19, 14 December 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
And I'm asking you because you created the redirect. - Denimadept (talk) 20:20, 14 December 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I have now re-written the Hospital Acquired Condition page. I'm interested in your input. - Denimadept (talk) 21:19, 14 December 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks, it needed to be written as an article, I built the redirect because it was hidden linking from HAC to Diagnosis-related group#MS-DRG version 26 revision which was incorrect. JeepdaySock (AKA, Jeepday) 11:52, 15 December 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
