Removed change from Armed Forces of Bosnia and Hercegovina[edit]

I made one slight alteration to a wiki regarding Bosnia's Armed Forces. I changed the word "Army" to "Armed Forces" as this is the correct term per the Oxford Concise English Dictionary (a combined Armed Forces is never addressed as an Army. This is linguistically and grammatically incorrect as A combined Armed Forces is a nations whole Armed Forces, an Army is but a nations ground forces. It is also deeply insulting to address non-army service personnel as army members). As such, it does not need a citation. It is already part of the English language. As such, please put my correction back. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.13.80.218 (talk) 21:42, 21 January 2020 (UTC)

Sorry. I was using a semi-automated tool to do anti-vandalism work and I must've accidentally reverted yours. I have put it back. TheAwesomeHwyh 21:48, 21 January 2020 (UTC)

Bird sanctuary copy and pastes[edit]

Hi. Do you know what's going on with all these bird sanctuary copy and pastes and how did you find them? --kingboyk (talk) 01:55, 23 January 2020 (UTC)

Hi. It seems to be some sort of class project that keeps happening. I used this search. I would welcome any help- seeing the number I think it might take me an hour to tag them all! See also: the SPI report. TheAwesomeHwyh 01:58, 23 January 2020 (UTC)
Goodness. At least we don't have to worry about SPI - from the link you gave me:
> Finally, there's no way I can justify the time to run a check on this many accounts given the lack of damage being done. You're welcome to block any accounts you wish if you think it's warranted, but unless something changes, this should not be handled at SPI.
I'll get a few more deleted for you this evening but I'll be off to bed soon. If you find any accounts which need to be blocked, drop me a line.
Thanks for the quick and helpful reply! --kingboyk (talk) 02:04, 23 January 2020 (UTC) (edit conflict)
Maybe a bot should be set up to automatically tag pages with the word "Ranganathittu" in them for deletion. Though, there might be false positives, like this page! I think there might have been a WP:AN/I discussion but I'm currently too busy tagging all these pages for deletion to find it. TheAwesomeHwyh 02:11, 23 January 2020 (UTC)
Tagging isn't strictly necessary, really; you could just find a friendly admin to trawl through the list and delete them (that's not an offer ;)).
I've done a few more - the slow part is checking the user contribs to ensure that it's valid for U5. --kingboyk (talk) 02:22, 23 January 2020 (UTC)
Yeah. But the problem is these pages keep coming in waves, so even with all this tagging I'm doing, if no one else tags/deletes these pages, by next year there might 400 more of them, maybe even more! Also, I'm currently looking for any other sanctuary names that might be edited like this, will update if I find any. TheAwesomeHwyh 02:27, 23 January 2020 (UTC)
I think I tagged them all. I still haven't found that other name, though. TheAwesomeHwyh 02:53, 23 January 2020 (UTC)
You tagged one which listed some other sanctuary names but it's gone now ;) This one I have open now might help:

That first batch is all gone now - User:Fastily lived up to their name and zapped what was left while I was writing to you :). --kingboyk (talk) 03:06, 23 January 2020 (UTC) (e/c)
Success! I already found one. TheAwesomeHwyh 03:05, 23 January 2020 (UTC)
This also seems to find one, but with a lot of false positives. TheAwesomeHwyh 03:13, 23 January 2020 (UTC)
Yet another. TheAwesomeHwyh 03:17, 23 January 2020 (UTC)
There's also this one, but it seems very rare for the articles to pop up there. TheAwesomeHwyh 03:20, 23 January 2020 (UTC)
Bankapura Peacock also brings up results. TheAwesomeHwyh 03:24, 23 January 2020 (UTC)
I managed to find another. This is getting to be almost comical. TheAwesomeHwyh 18:42, 23 January 2020 (UTC)
This also brings up more. TheAwesomeHwyh 18:49, 23 January 2020 (UTC)
A HUGE amount can be found with this search. TheAwesomeHwyh 18:52, 23 January 2020 (UTC)
More with this. TheAwesomeHwyh 18:54, 23 January 2020 (UTC)
Woah. It's been a few days and I decided to just search for "bird sanctuary". Some false positives, but there's hundreds more of the articles. Wow. TheAwesomeHwyh 13:50, 26 January 2020 (UTC)
There was also an earlier discussion a few months back on my userpage. That's where I got the search to find them. There might also be others, I remember some of them using a different bird sanctuary but I can't find that. TheAwesomeHwyh 02:01, 23 January 2020 (UTC)

Speedy deletion[edit]

Hello again. When you encounter promotional edits in userspace where the username matches the name of the entity being promoted, can you please tag as G11 rather than U5? That makes my job a little easier as I don't have to clear the deletion reason box and then select G11. You might also want to report the username to WP:UAA, although a good admin ought to catch the username when they process the CSD.

(I'm referring to User:Mindsmediaads and User:SalechaHomes/sandbox; both pages have been deleted and the users blocked). Cheers! --kingboyk (talk) 18:04, 24 January 2020 (UTC)

Playsaurus[edit]

I created a new draft article titled Playsaurus, and have been Google searching info about it. Would you be willing to take a look and find some sources so my article doesn't die? Thanks, King of Scorpions 19:09, 28 January 2020 (UTC)

It's not really my role to find sources for you. I can help you learn how to find sources on your own, but I'm not going to just do that work for you. TheAwesomeHwyh 15:34, 29 January 2020 (UTC)

I have a question[edit]

@TheAwesomeHwyh: When I look at your edits, I notice that most have a "TW" next to them. What does that mean? Any insight appreciated, King of Scorpions 21:26, 30 January 2020 (UTC)

It means Twinkle, a popular tool that helps people make edits. I usually use it to tag articles for speedy deletion. TheAwesomeHwyh 01:58, 31 January 2020 (UTC)

Monty Python[edit]

I do not have a Wikipedia a/c.

Here's the actual footage:-https://www.huntleyarchives.com/preview.asp?image=1005679&itemw=4&itemf=0002&itemstep=1&itemx=43

It is NOT on the Norwegian Blu-Ray.

This is from Season 3. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2A02:C7D:598E:7C00:E8FA:2660:AF7F:592F (talk) 02:09, 4 February 2020 (UTC)

NPOV articles[edit]

It was mentioned in the Teahouse that you can direct us to a list of NPOV articles. Do you have a link?--Quisqualis (talk) 01:28, 5 February 2020 (UTC)

Ah. That was referring to a quick custom search I made. It's not actually geared towards non-NPOV articles, but rather promotional articles created by people with a COI. TheAwesomeHwyh 01:30, 5 February 2020 (UTC)
It does have a lot of false positives though, be careful! TheAwesomeHwyh 01:31, 5 February 2020 (UTC)

your question on my talk page[edit]

I answered your question about the deletion methods here. Let me know what you thought of my answer... King of Scorpions 21:50, 6 February 2020 (UTC)

your sandbox page[edit]

I noticed the article you're making in your sandbox here. It looks pretty good! Do you plan to publish it as an article someday? Also, is the "Ping" feature not working? I thought I replied to you on my talk page... Weird... King of Scorpions 18:35, 7 February 2020 (UTC)

Yeah, I'm going to publish it soon. I've been busy in real life lately so I haven't been able to reply. I'll try to reply to what you have on your talk page later. TheAwesomeHwyh 18:40, 7 February 2020 (UTC)
I just published it. TheAwesomeHwyh 18:53, 7 February 2020 (UTC)
That makes sense. I'm busy sometimes, too... King of Scorpions 19:01, 7 February 2020 (UTC)
Will you be available to mentor me today? I sorta want to learn some new stuff about Wikipedia... King of Scorpions 18:26, 10 February 2020 (UTC)
Hah. You left this message just as I was looking at your contributions. Sure! TheAwesomeHwyh 18:28, 10 February 2020 (UTC)

mentorship[edit]

I looked at your contribs and you seem to be active as of 17:07 UTC. Are you available to mentor me today? I want to learn more about anti-vandalism... King of Scorpions (my talk) 17:08, 12 February 2020 (UTC)

Yes, in a little while. There's a lot of vandalism going on right now and I'm trying to help revert it. TheAwesomeHwyh 17:10, 12 February 2020 (UTC)
OK King of Scorpions (my talk) 17:11, 12 February 2020 (UTC)

New Page Reviewer newsletter February 2020[edit]

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Hello TheAwesomeHwyh,

Source Guide Discussion

The first NPP source guide discussion is now underway. It covers a wide range of sources in Ghana with the goal of providing more guidance to reviewers about sources they might see when reviewing pages. Hopefully, new page reviewers will join others interested in reliable sources and those with expertise in these sources to make the discussion a success.

Redirects

New to NPP? Looking to try something a little different? Consider patrolling some redirects. Redirects are relatively easy to review, can be found easily through the New Pages Feed. You can find more information about how to patrol redirects at WP:RPATROL.

Discussions and Resources
Refresher

Geographic regions, areas and places generally do not need general notability guideline type sourcing. When evaluating whether an article meets this notability guideline please also consider whether it might actually be a form of WP:SPAM for a development project (e.g. PR for a large luxury residential development) and not actually covered by the guideline.

Six Month Queue Data: Today – 7095 Low – 4991 High – 7095
