Hello, I revised the article that you initially deleted, so it contains better references and it's more relevant. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:Raoul_Bhatt — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tonystargazer (talkcontribs)

Okay. I don't do AfC, so you'll have to submit it and wait for a reviewer. ♠PMC(talk) 02:17, 15 September 2020 (UTC)

DYK for Inuit clothing

Updated DYK query.svgOn 17 September 2020, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Inuit clothing, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that modern studies have shown that the characteristic fur-trimmed hood on traditional Inuit skin clothing (example pictured) is more effective at preventing heat transfer than manufactured winter clothing? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Inuit clothing. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Inuit clothing), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. 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.

Draft:Mark Hanis

Can you please peek at the page deleted in Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Mark Hanis to see if either this draft needs to be deleted as a re-creation, if it's based on the original enough to require a history-merge, or if it's different and can be reviewed on its own merits?

If it's the last one, could you paste references that are in the deleted version to the talk page of the draft? With the references it has, it's potentially in the grey area of "maybe" when it comes to meeting WP:BIO and related notability guidelines, provided someone worked long and hard on it. My hope is that it's either a copy and can be deleted immediately, or that it's got additional references that would make me say "yea, the person is wiki-notable, even a rewrite is required."

davidwr/(talk)/(contribs) 21:15, 26 September 2020 (UTC)

It's completely identical, literally to the word and link placement. It even has the exact same list of ELNO-violating links at the end. You can nuke it from space at your leisure. ♠PMC(talk) 02:36, 27 September 2020 (UTC)
Thanks, tagged G4 with a link to this discussion, figured I'll save the deleting admin the time of checking it out for himself (although he probably will because it is, or should be, part of the G4-delete sanity-check routine) davidwr/(talk)/(contribs) 02:53, 27 September 2020 (UTC)
No problem. ♠PMC(talk) 02:55, 27 September 2020 (UTC)
Well, the G4 was declined because it was a draft. Given that it is identical and obviously not improved upon, I figured the "anti-circumvention" exception to the "draft exception" applied, but there's no harm letting it age out with a G13 in a few months. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs) 02:57, 27 September 2020 (UTC)
You could try MfD, but yeah, G13 is probably the path of least resistance if it's not being actively fucked with. ♠PMC(talk) 04:00, 27 September 2020 (UTC)
Ironically, the best outcome would be if someone were to [bleep] with in in a positive way, making it clear that the topic does meet WP:N and re-write it in a form suitable for Wikipedia. I'm not motivated to do that right now, but maybe you or some {{talk page stalker}} is. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs) 14:53, 27 September 2020 (UTC)
I certainly hope not. It's obviously promotional editing, we shouldn't be encouraging that kind of thing by rewriting and moving to main, especially after it's already been deleted at AfD for lack of notability. ♠PMC(talk) 18:33, 27 September 2020 (UTC)
I think you misread me. IF a topic IS notable, even if the Draft: article is initially unacceptable, it can be gutted and re-written in draft space then promoted to the main encyclopedia. If a topic is NOT notable, then of course burn it with fire and throw WP:SALT on it if necessary. This topic was in the "grey zone" so preferred first step one would be getting it out of the "grey zone" by adding suitable references that clearly demonstrate its notability. If that can't be done, then adding enough references to "firm up" the notability claim as much as possible without being spammy, then have "disinterested" editors use those sources and maybe others to try to make a suitable article, knowing that "we give up" is an acceptable outcome. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs) 18:55, 27 September 2020 (UTC)
I don't think I did misread you, considering you said the best thing would be someone re-writing it to make it suitable for Wikipedia, but I also don't want to argue about it. ♠PMC(talk) 19:34, 27 September 2020 (UTC)

IP talk archives

Please reconsider your close of Wikipedia:Miscellany for deletion/User talk:142.227.150.1/Archive 1 (2nd nomination); all three keep !votes were based on the question "why we would want to delete the long history of an IP's vandalism and abuse". No-one is proposing to delete the history; the nomination itself says that the various archived notices "...are anyway available in page history". Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 09:33, 9 October 2020 (UTC)

You literally nominated it for deletion at MfD. Your nomination doesn't make clear that you weren't seeking deletion, so of course the arguments of other participants would be based around deletion rather than some other unspecified action on your part. In any case, closing as keep doesn't mean you can't blank it or move it or whatever else you want to do to it, it just means it's not getting deleted. ♠PMC(talk) 20:52, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
You misundertand me. I am indeed proposing to delete the archives. No-one is proposing to delete the talk pages' history. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 18:57, 10 October 2020 (UTC)
  • User talk pages are rarely ever deleted and User talk page archives are an extension of the User talk page. Normal Op (talk) 20:01, 10 October 2020 (UTC)
    • Your comment is orthogonal to my request; but IP talk pages are regularly, routinely, and usually blanked without archiving. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 20:24, 10 October 2020 (UTC)
      • So blank the archive. Nothing in my close precludes that; only that there was no consensus to delete the archive outright. ♠PMC(talk) 21:03, 10 October 2020 (UTC)

Predictions of the end of Wikipedia

Hi PMC,

Regarding your recent close of the above AFD, there still seems to be some confusion. I'm under the impression that the keep is a means to preserve attribution for any merging that people might want to do. I've since tried to re-redirect it back to the main Wikipedia article, but apparently this has still been objected to. In reading back over the discussion, the keeps were almost invariably of the ITSJUSTNOTABLE type. Everyone that was actually looking at the sources specifically and in detail was very clear about how none of them supported the existence of the article and that the SYNTH problems were insurmountable.

Do you not agree with this assessment? Pinging Normal Op, who was suggesting that this needs to go to DRV instead of my redirecting. Thanks, –Deacon Vorbis (carbon • videos) 17:33, 10 October 2020 (UTC)

Vorbis: Re "as a means to preserve attribution"... that's what the edit history is for. If you redirect an article, its original contents are always still available via the edit history. Therefore, a decision to "merge" (which almost always means leave the original article as a redirect pointing to where it got merged) would be executed like you just did. But a Keep vote is a different thing. Hence my confusion why you executed actions consistent with a Merge decision, not a Keep decision. Normal Op (talk) 17:40, 10 October 2020 (UTC)
Well, that's why I'm asking here. If it really was meant as a pure keep, I think it bears a second look, because the strength of the arguments at the discussion overwhelmingly favors some sort of merge/redirect option. –Deacon Vorbis (carbon • videos) 17:48, 10 October 2020 (UTC)
Like I said before, I hadn't even followed the AfD or the article. I was just looking at the technicality of it all. What I saw was: close as Keep, reopen discussion, close as Keep, then you did actions consistent with a Merge decision. Sometimes you just have to bend to the will of the consensus (even if you completely disagree with it) and wait another 6 months or so and re-submit an AfD. Or do a deletion review or something else. But you can't just buck the consensus and not expect some blowback for it. Normal Op (talk) 17:53, 10 October 2020 (UTC)
The closure meant exactly what I wrote: there was no consensus to delete the content outright (not even a burgeoning argument for deletion that would have merited a relist), therefore the discussion no longer belongs at Articles for Deletion. The close explicitly stated that determining whether or not to merge or redirect it can be handled outside AfD. Normally that would be by a consensus-seeking process at an appropriate venue (usually the article's talk page). I have added a clarifying comment at the AfD. ♠PMC(talk) 21:21, 10 October 2020 (UTC)

Adam Jensen Page Deletion

Hello PMC. My name is Adam Jensen. I’m a hardworking independent musician from Boston. I’m wondering if you can tell me why you deleted my Wikipedia page?

It’s been there for five or more years. I did not make it and I honestly am not very computer savvy so I don’t even know how to try to re-make it on my own. I don’t see why you would come after me, I don’t bother anyone. I write and produce my own stuff. I make my living and feed my family off of my music career. Last year I got 300 million streams independently, competing with most major label artists as an independent artist. A million monthly listeners on Spotify, again out-streaming the majority of major label artists. I’m only mentioning these things because I see that you are an independent fiction writer so I’m wondering why you would decide to pick on lil ol’ me?

At first I was very angry because I figured you were just some troll/hater. But then I saw that you have been a Wikipedia editor for 17 years and you seem like an unbiased, intelligent person. So I’m honestly wondering why you deleted my Wikipedia page?? Do we know each other personally?? Do you not like my music or something?? Are you just being a bully? Please let me know why. Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by IrishDynamo9 (talkcontribs) 01:50, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

As an administrator, I closed the articles for deletion discussion (found here Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Adam Jensen (musician)) as soft delete in accordance with Wikipedia procedures. The original nominator, who wasn't me, made a reasonable argument for deletion - that you do not appear to have garnered sufficient coverage to meet our notability guideline - and there was no opposition. Please don't attempt to recreate it yourself; autobiographies are frowned upon especially when the article has already been deleted once. (As a side note, I've removed your email address - you probably don't want it out there for eternity getting scraped by mirrors and spambots). ♠PMC(talk) 03:09, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

So you just get to delete me forever based on your personal opinion? I notice you went to every other page that mentions my name and deleted me as well. Thats so awesome. There has been plenty of major coverage of my music over the last decade. Did you even look me up? I think you just didn’t do your research and arbitrarily deleted my page so you could add another one to your list. — Preceding unsigned comment added by IrishDynamo9 (talkcontribs) 16:04, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

Its OK. You messed up. You are wrong. You delete pages for fun and you got it wrong this time. But now go back and fix it like a normal human. — Preceding unsigned comment added by IrishDynamo9 (talkcontribs) 16:07, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

I meet almost every criteria listed on this page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Notability_(music)#Criteria_for_musicians_and_ensembles — Preceding unsigned comment added by IrishDynamo9 (talkcontribs) 17:07, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

Listen man, if you're going to continue to make this weird and personal, I'm going to stop responding. I understand that this is upsetting to you, but accusing me of deleting the page for arbitrary reasons despite the clear explanation I provided in my first reply isn't helpful, and neither is ordering me about and telling me I'm not acting like a human. Removing links to deleted pages from other pages is an automated function, not a personal vendetta. I'm not going to argue with you with regards to your own notability in the absence of reliable sources - this is exactly why we recommend that people avoid editing about themselves. ♠PMC(talk) 19:37, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

Moving auto-patrol right to new account

Hi PMC! Last year you gave autopatrol right to my account. Due to certain risks to my privacy I have advice to do a fresh start. Is it possible to move the autopatrol right to the new account? In the long term I think that the risk is low but, it is still present, and if this account (I am writing on it) was found, then the risk suddenly becomes very high of harassment or other things. Please let me know, if you can move the autopatrol right to my new account. Thanks Sail 95 (talk) 17:16, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

I don't think it would be a problem as long as there's confirmation that the new account is you (you could email me from the Sail 95 account to give me your new username, for example), but it would pretty blatantly mark your new account as a returning user. And considering you said you wanted to continue to work in the same area, it would probably be a very obvious indicator that the new account was you specifically. I'm willing to do it, but I just want you to keep in mind that it might make your fresh start harder to maintain anonymity on. ♠PMC(talk) 19:44, 14 October 2020 (UTC)
The chance of the group who I am thinking about, even finding one of the accounts is very low. I think that they will not go through the trouble of making any edits just to harass, but it is probably safer to start again, so that the account cannot be traced to this one such as with a name change. Helps that I know exactly who the person making the biggest problem is, what I am being careful about, so that I can make the chance of finding as low as possible. Maybe it is an idea to add the autopatrol right after a few weeks or months instead. Thanks Sail 95 (talk) 19:57, 14 October 2020 (UTC)
That would make it less obvious for sure, although again if you're making the same kind of articles in the same topic area your identity might still be fairly obvious (especially if it's a low-traffic topic area with few other active editors). ♠PMC(talk) 19:59, 14 October 2020 (UTC)
No worries, it is worth saying, that I will probably edit in more areas too, instead of one specific area. I will let you know about it soon. Thanks Sail 95 (talk) 20:07, 14 October 2020 (UTC)
No problem, cheers :) ♠PMC(talk) 20:08, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

DYK for Sipiniq

Updated DYK query.svgOn 19 October 2020, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Sipiniq, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that the Inuit identity of sipiniq referred to individuals who were believed to have changed their physical sex at the moment of birth, but were socialized as members of their original gender? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Sipiniq. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Sipiniq), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000.

Thank you for the article, introduced "Right! This was my first GA, way back in early 2018. It's come a long way since the GA version, and I think at this point I have to stop being a coward and just do the FA nom. I've scoured the internet for every available source, and I'm pretty sure this is as comprehensive as I can make it without actually learning Georgian (and even then, the most important Georgian source, Elene Virsaladze's Georgian hunting myths and poetry, is available online in a high-quality English translation published by the Georgian National Academy). For sources which are not freely/immediately available online, I have access to PDFs of most and can email copies to anyone who wants to do a source check. The evolution of Dali is an incredible testimony to the plasticity and transformation of myth. To some authors, she represents evidence that classical Georgia borrowed mythemes from classical Greece. To others, she is an example of the mistress of the hunt, an archetype found in stories across Europe. After Christianity came to Georgia, she was sometimes regarded as a demoness. No matter the interpretation, she remains uniquely herself: haughty, demanding, and seductive. To quote John Mulaney: Dali is a bitch, and I like her so much."! --Gerda Arendt (talk) 07:57, 2 November 2020 (UTC)

You clearly didn't read the header in the slightest (new messages to the bottom, please link the article, please provide sources when requesting undeletion), and you've accused me of cultural vandalism, so we're not off to a great start.

Hi friendo, I heard you got paid billions of dollars to delete this article's previous incarnation. I'd like to inquire how one goes about getting a hut in the Maldives. Kthx. Praxidicae (talk) 21:53, 29 November 2020 (UTC)

First, you have to join the cabal. You have to sacrifice burnt caviar at midnight under a new moon to signal your desire to join the cabal, who will reply within a fortnight's time by way of a message shrieked by a black falcon. Then there's a lengthy initiation period that includes the learning of mystical chants such as the ge'engie and encórpe, among others. Eventually you have to start recruiting others to the cabal, and once you make Platinexus VIP 80k level from your downline's edit counts and chanting bonuses, you get the jet-powered cabana in the Maldives. But don't spread it around too much, I don't want it to get overcrowded here. ♠PMC(talk) 03:33, 30 November 2020 (UTC)

Dr Mark Bagshaw

I have given up on Wikipedia given the decisions it makes on deleting quality articles but this is one that truly deserves to be reversed. Maybe in death Wikipedia can see merit in Mark Bagshaw that it didn’t in life.

I won’t work on it but maybe you can. SproulesLane (talk) 19:43, 1 December 2020 (UTC)

Dude, don't try to guilt-trip me into doing work you don't want to do. I'm fine with restoring to your user-space if you want to work on it, but the fact that I closed a deletion discussion three years ago doesn't make me responsible for recreating the article at your whim. ♠PMC(talk) 22:38, 2 December 2020 (UTC)
I wasn’t trying to guilt trip you in to anything at all. Your response is exactly why I wouldn’t try to do anything at all to a deleted bio because I couldn’t deal with the rude response that I would get by restoring it. It was deleted after a vexatious editor called for everything to be removed by me and hastily. You removed it so I thought you might like to restore it. I have no idea how I get something from a user-space to an article and don’t seem to be able to start something from scratch any more. In future I’ll never bother you again given your response. It calls in to question your desirability as person you decides what is deleted and what isn’t. I presumed goodwill on your part but I was mistaken. Sorry SproulesLane (talk) 02:30, 3 December 2020 (UTC)
You didn't come here and ask for help or advice, you came here and complained that you were giving up on Wikipedia then said "I won’t work on it but maybe you can". That's a guilt trip, and I'm not into it. As an administrator, I don't decide what gets deleted when closing AfD discussions, I enact the consensus that develops at the discussion. In the case of Mark Bagshaw, it was a clear consensus to delete. My role was simply to carry that out.
Your account is auto-confirmed, so you should easily be able to create new articles in mainspace, although in this particular case since it was deleted at AfD I would recommend working on it in draft or userspace instead. To that end, my offer to restore the article to your userspace remains open. ♠PMC(talk) 03:05, 3 December 2020 (UTC)
A clear consensus in two days between the 13 and 15 December with two deletes, one weak keep and one weak delete. The first was no more than a vote and the three others saw merit in the bio but didn’t think the refs were significantly strong. At the time the nominator for deletion was nominating almost every bio I had ever worked on and I was flat out defending them. As an administrator maybe you were too hasty but it would be unwise to question your ability. I have no idea what an auto-confirmed account is so I will just have to hope that someone else will fix this up. SproulesLane (talk) 04:24, 3 December 2020 (UTC)
Auto-confirmed means you have more than 10 edits and your account is more than 4 days old, which is the only requirement necessary for creating new articles. There is nothing preventing you from creating new pages. Four deletes vs one keep is a fairly strong consensus, and even the weak keep admitted there wasn't sufficient sourcing to justify most of the claims in the article. AfD debates run for a week unless relisted, so the timeframe of the comments is hardly relevant. In any case, in the time you've spent here complaining about me, you could've been working on the article in your userspace already. Do you want it restored, or do you just want to argue with me about an AfD whose result was settled three years ago? ♠PMC(talk) 04:43, 3 December 2020 (UTC)
It sat for a week with no comment as it was poorly listed but you were so swift to delete it and there was no real discussion after two days. I’m so pleased that you think you did the right thing because that is all that matters. You are the font of all wisdom and I know nothing and can do nothing. As an administrator you are very rude and dismissive. After years of productive editing I was driven out of my old role by the likes of you. In 2017 I started a fresh because I was locked out and could only create a draft with Creating Draft:Harold Lobb under my new user name. That has now been dumped as I don’t know how to proceed. I just make very basic changes when I see mistakes. This is where it will have to stay as you are not prepared to help. This is not a friendly community with people like you at its helm. Sadly the Mark Bagshaw won’t be given a bio. SproulesLane (talk) 12:11, 3 December 2020 (UTC)
I've offered three times now to help, and you refuse because you want someone else to do the work for you. I'm not interested in writing the article. I don't write content I'm not interested in. It's as simple as that. I'm happy to restore Mark Bagshaw to your userspace for you to work on. I'm also happy to restore the Harold Lobb draft as well since it was only deleted because the draft expired. It's your call. Anything not being done here is on you. ♠PMC(talk) 19:19, 3 December 2020 (UTC)

Joe Garner Turman

Hi, I appreciate the effort to eliminate articles that do not meet Wikipedia criteria, but in this case, the basis for deletion was not based on correct information. While the books listed on the page of this author at the time of deletion were in "hardly any libraries," as one user put it, that is not true of his novel Sling Creek. See the record of it here: https://www.worldcat.org/title/sling-creek/oclc/233598113?referer=br&ht=edition

I would politely request that you restore the article or initiate a deletion review, and I'll be happy to update it with more recent titles added.

Thanks, LC | Talk 22:30, 3 January 2021 (UTC)

There was a clear consensus for deletion at the AfD, so I am not going to overturn. If you have substantive sources which indicate that the consensus was not correct, by all means show them to me, but aside from that, no. You're free to take it to DRV, but given the unanimous consensus I doubt it will be overturned there either, since DRV is mostly for correcting instances of closer error. ♠PMC(talk) 00:24, 5 January 2021 (UTC)

The Myth of the Good War

You were right before I found the book on Academia, it's referring to the German Soldiers killed. In the Soviet Union, Germany would lose no less than 10 million of its total 13.5 million men killed, wounded, or taken prisoner during the entire war, and the Red Army would end up claiming credit for 90 per cent of all Germans killed in the Second World war on page 73.https://www.academia.edu/21745112/The_Myth_of_the_Good_War_America_in_the_Second_World_War

Its talking about the Germans killed soldiers killed in the book he has it like this, (In the Soviet Union, Germany would lose no less than 10 million of its total 13.5 million men killed, wounded, or taken prisoner during the entire war, and the Red Army would end up claiming credit for 90 per cent of all Germans killed in the Second World War.)28 that's why I worded it like Some historians estimate that the Red Army was responsible for 90% of German soldiers killed during World War II.XFO-12 (talk) 01:42, 11 January 2021 (UTC)


When you read it it's open to interpretation the way it's worded. Are you ok with the way I put it since it's also from the book https://www.academia.edu/21745112/The_Myth_of_the_Good_War_America_in_the_Second_World_War and since its talking about the German military casualties before in the opening.XFO-12 (talk) 02:09, 11 January 2021 (UTC)

Close at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Quadradius (2nd nomination)

Reviewing this close (I missed this discussion whilst the AFD was up) I think probably an article could reasonably have been written on this subject that would pass WP:GNG. Particularly the article in 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die is actually a two-page article and thus actually a WP:SIGCOV pass, and there was a Boston Globe article about the game. Do you think we can do a refund on this so I can try an upgrade? FOARP (talk) 11:21, 22 January 2021 (UTC)

Normally I'm not that picky about undeleting articles for experienced users like yourself, but the deletion consensus was pretty solid, and the 1001 Video Games source was discussed at the AfD. I had a look at at epub of it, and it's less than 300 words. I'm not that convinced that it, plus a short Globe article, are sufficient to hit GNG. Is there any other reliable sourcing? ♠PMC(talk) 22:29, 22 January 2021 (UTC)

Draft: STEMconnector

Hi Premeditated Choas,

On 1/21 you deleted my draft called "Draft:STEMconnector" and it was very much still a draft and I was working through changing the language. I'm new to Wikipedia and cannot seem to find any of the text I had written and is now deleted. Can you send me the text you deleted or restore the deleted page so that I can finish it and make the changes necessary to meet Wikipedia's rules? It was not a completed draft or something that was intended for review... because it was not complete. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dougpod (talkcontribs) 19:17, 22 January 2021 (UTC)

The problem with the page was that it was extremely promotional in tone, which we don't allow on Wikipedia. It reads like a press release from the company (and in fact, almost all the sourcing was to the company itself). Given that, I have to ask - are you connected with STEMconnector in any way? ♠PMC(talk) 22:32, 22 January 2021 (UTC)

List of Sony A-mount lenses

Hi PMC, I just found out that the article "List of Sony A-mount lenses" has been deleted last year with you being the closing admin. Per our rules for AfDs, as a major contributor to or IIRC even creator of the article I should have been notified about the nomination. However, I was not and so could not join the discussion to provide background on the article and camera system.

As the article is about an obviously notable topic, was carefully researched, was in no way promotional, and contained only accurate information (see archived snapshot: [5]), I would have contested the nomination. It is obvious that the nominator did not carry out the necessary homework WP:BEFORE the nomination (nor did the only two(!) commentors). As Sony is one of the three major camera brands wordwide, and A-mount lenses are a major part of the Sony α system (which Sony inherited from Konica Minolta and Minolta), the system has more than 35 years of history with millions of lenses sold, the topic is quite notable, and having a comprehensive list of Sony A-mount lenses is of encyclopedic importance for Wikipedia. The article also answers many questions frequently asked by users in photo forums, so we are not doing our readers any service at all to not have it, in fact, it looks really bad on us. We also have similar lists for Minolta A-mount and Sony E-mount lenses as well as for Nikon, Canon and other vendor camera systems. So, deletion per WP:GNG or list-cruft is absurd. The system is widely discussed in printed publications and on many websites, so that a long list of sources could be brought by for each of the lenses. Looking at the archived snapshot it is true, that the article was poorly sourced, but only due to a lack of time (on my side) and the fact that it was so obvious that this is a notable topic to anyone even remotely into photography that it was not deemed necessary to have references immediately. Our normal procedure for poorly sourced articles and contested contents is to tag them accordingly in order to motivate editors to bring by the requested references, not to swiftly delete whole articles on notable subjects. It is saddening to see that it is possible that nominations like this can slip through causing significant damage to the project and trashing carefully researched contributions. It is such a waste of resources...

If you can spend a couple of minutes, it would be great if you could do a quick search on Google to verify my statements on notability above and see for yourself that I am not making anything up and that an abundant amount of sources exists out there, so the topic should never have been deleted. I hope this would be convincing enough to restore the article and tag it for improvement of references, so that editors can start to bring by references without having to start to research everything from scratch. I don't have much time at present, but I would try to repair the once carefully set up infrastructure around this article (it had many incoming links), which got trashed along with the deletion, but it would probably take weeks. I do not, at present, have enough time to bring by sources for every detail (although I have many in my library), but I can bring by at least a few generic ones to show notability and for easier cross-reference.

Thanks for your kind consideration. Greetings, --Matthiaspaul (talk) 21:39, 27 January 2021 (UTC)

So first of all, there is actually no rule that anyone be notified about AfD discussions. Twinkle generally automatically generates a courtesy notice to advise the creator (which was not you), but it is generally considered the responsibility of interested editors to keep an eye on articles and participate in deletion discussions. The existence of similar lists doesn't mean anything with regards to this list; it may mean that the other lists also need to be taken to AfD and evaluated. I frankly don't see any indication that the article as written was "carefully researched" - it had one source, and that was a forum post. You've spent a lot of space telling me the lens range must obviously be notable, but not a lot of space showing me sources that actually indicate that. If you want me to overturn a solid-consensus AfD from a year ago, you need to put in the work of finding sources. ♠PMC(talk) 00:07, 28 January 2021 (UTC)
Sure, sources need to be provided, but not necessarily by me alone - I can only work on a limited amount of topics in parallel...
If you check my contributions you will see that I typically add references along with the contents and are retrofitting missing references all over the place. Even if I was not the article creator, I know that I created several other (better sourced) lists, and I know that I spent literally weeks to triple-check everything to be accurate also in this article. It takes a lot of time to create such a list, even without the references, so I can understand why many editors tend to add references at a later step (although this is not ideal, of course). I fully agree that the given source leaves the article in a bad state in regard to WP:RS, but this does not mean that the topic would not be notable per se, or the information not be accurate & verifiable.
With just two commentors, even a single well-reasoned "Keep" would have made it at least a "No consensus", so not notifying those per WP:AFDLIST who put effort into the article made quite a difference, and could even be considered as unconstructive and tactical - after all, we are always seeking for the best possible solution for this encyclopedia.
Either way, the reason why I contacted you in good faith is not to look back but because I see that we have a problem now not having an article about this topic (it was a vital part of the backbone structure around various Minolta/Konica Minolta/Sony/Zeiss photographic topics) and I want to help fix these issues:
You want sources in the article, I want them as well. Luckily enough, I can provide many of them, even for the details - nevertheless, I hope that other editors will join in a collaborative effort, because, realistically, I need more time for it than I currently have (because there is a huge backlog of queued stuff prepared for other articles already). I might be able to find some time on the weekend to collect at least enough sources to clearly demonstrate notability beyond any doubt and allow to verify many of the details already.
If I cannot convince you to do a quick Google search to see for yourself that the topic is notable and the info is verifiable, please userfy so that I can work on it when I will find the time. However, I would have thought that just restoring would have been the better solution in the interest of the project as the community can clearly provide most of the sources as well so I could devote more time on topics where only experts can provide the necessary references. Thanks.
--Matthiaspaul (talk) 03:30, 28 January 2021 (UTC)
That's a whole lot of verbiage about how many sources are available, and a whole paucity of sources linked. I'm not asking you to source the entire article right this second, but if you want me to overturn a unanimous-consensus AfD from a year ago, you can put in the work to show me at least a couple of substantive reliable sources. ♠PMC(talk) 03:49, 28 January 2021 (UTC)
A 2-0 unanimous-consensus with both votes on the same day. Never mind the fact that the world was in a global pandemic and people might have been worried about other things than an article for deletion. Deleting the article was out of line, it's like deleting Windows XP editions. DiamondIIIXX (talk) 11:27, 28 January 2021 (UTC)
Timing of when votes were made is irrelevant to closure. So is the fact that we're in a pandemic, unfortunately - the AfD process has not been altered on this account. Sources please. ♠PMC(talk) 22:36, 28 January 2021 (UTC)
I did not expect that you want sources to be produced here rather than in the article, and I said I have a huge backlog and won't be able to provide anything before the weekend, anyway. The backlog hasn't cleared, but since you can't be bothered with doing at least a quick Google search to ensure that my statement is correct, for a start here are some sources, and pointers for more:

I'm sorry, I still don't see the sourcing bearing out your claim of notability. What you've linked to here is self-published blogs (mostly spec details) and spec sheets from Sony. It's not sourcing I would accept on any other topic, and I don't see a reason to make an exception for this one. If you want to take it to WP:DRV, by all means do so, but if this is the best sourcing available for the topic, I don't see myself changing my mind on this. ♠PMC(talk) 07:47, 2 February 2021 (UTC)

PCR questions

Hi, Thanks for reviewing my request to be a pending changes reviewer. I will definitely apply again later when I have enough edits. However just out of interest, how many main space edits would be considered a “measurable track record”? When I first applied I only had a few (hence the bot message), however as it stands I now have almost 550 total edits and 230 main space. Hopefully this will increase a bit after I finish the CVUA course. Thanks for your time, Skingo12 (talk) 22:31, 28 January 2021 (UTC)

Based on the recent history of approved requests, most approved users had over 1000 live edits total, with 60% or more being in mainspace, so I declined your request with that standard in mind.

Qaryat al Ḩūrīyah al Jadīdah

Hi. I noticed your move of Huriyah al Jadidah to Qaryat al Ḩūrīyah al Jadīdah. 'Qaryat' isn't really needed here, it's just Arabic for 'village'. Notably there is also a Huriyah (الحورية, not الحرية) village in the same district, so Huriyah al Jadidah ('New Huriyah') presumably refers to being 'new' in comparison with the (presumably) old Huriyah village. Wikimapia, which isn't WP:RS, says the Huriyah al Jadidah village is also referred to as Shukran village. Notably in google maps Shukran village appears, just south of Huriyah village. This Kuwait News Agency report details the recapture of Shukran, Huriyah and 4 other Shirqat villages from IS in 2016, https://www.kuna.net.kw/ArticleDetails.aspx?id=2534819&Language=ar . This news report details the opening of health centre in Shukran village, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mkb81xxCANw . Seems Shukran would be a better name for the article. --Soman (talk) 16:46, 14 February 2021 (UTC)

I moved it because the only RS I could find re: the name was GNIS, which has it as Qaryat al Ḩūrīyah al Jadīdah. That being said, GNIS has its faults. If you're convinced Shukran is the better name, do as you will. ♠PMC(talk) 04:40, 15 February 2021 (UTC)
