COP[edit]

I want to donate but you are asking me to pay in Colombia pesos. I can only donate in USA dollars. So how do I do that? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 181.133.130.47 (talk) 00:50, 26 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Oliver Onions[edit]

Hi, This edit is technically beyond me, so I'd like to ask someone else to do it.

In the first introductory paragraph of the entry for writer Oliver Onions, the first sentence ends with "over 40 novels" and cites Kunitz and Haycraft. Two things: 1. I have this book, and this quantity of works is not mentioned there, so the reference is incorrect. 2. All the research I've done suggests that Onions did not write this number of novels, so it's also incorrect factually.

I could edit out the sentence to simply read "and novels" and remove the reference at that point. But that would mess up the numbering of the references, which I don't know how to fix.

Hoping someone who has better skills can sort this one out.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Best regards,

Mike Walmer Spikenard65 (talk) 07:56, 26 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Spikenard65, I have changed "over 40 novels" to "novels" and moved the reference as it is used later in the article. TSventon (talk) 09:06, 26 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Copying and translating content of another page in a different language[edit]

I would like to copy this page from German Wikipedia to the English Wikipedia: https:de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karl_von_Graffen

At one point it existed in english but someone deleted all the information. I would like to reinstate it - with all the links. I am completely new to editing Wiki pages so I have no idea how to do this. Many thanks AngieLCL (talk) 11:03, 26 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

We already have an article: Karl von Graffen. As for translating from the German Wikipedia article, this might be problematic, as their article doesn't seem to cite much in the way of sources (or at least, to make clear where the content is sourced to), which we would require. Any translated content would have to be attributed: see Help:Translation. AndyTheGrump (talk) 11:54, 26 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Claim of Conflict of Interest & Copyright[edit]

Hi, I am the Website Officer for Phoenix Reading Hockey Club and have full control of the content on prhockeyclub.co.uk. I have recently began to create a Wiki page for our club - this information is unbias, strictly factual, and as per everything I write from a neutral perspective.

The information I supplied was initially claimed to be Copyrighted material. As the Website Officer for the club, I give assurances that it is not Copyright material, and is simply a background on how the club was formed.

The second dispute was a Conflict of Interest. I am an un-paid employee for the club. The only paid employees are external coaches or specialists.

My question: how do I upload any neutral and unbias information about our club without the constant disputes? As the Website Officer, I am one of the most qualified people to supply history and information on the club.

Vandalism help request from {{subst:Flyabynyt}}[edit]

I have noticed some vandalism at Stavros Halkias. Namely, Stavros recently left his position as one of the hosts of the podcast Cum Town. A Wikipedia user added a "controversies" section to his Wikipedia page which contains poorly sourced information which is not notable or relevant. I believe this was motivated by a personal dislike of the subject, and don't believe the section belongs on the article. Other users have attempted to remove the most egregious parts of this section, but users keep reverting the changes. Would an editor please assist me with fixing it? Thank you, Flyabynyt (talk) 19:50, 26 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Addition of content whose inclusion you disagree with is not WP:Vandalism, which specifically means edits designed to harm the article/Wikipedia. it is merely WP:Content dispute which you and the other editor(s) involved should civilly discuss and reach a compromise on.
I notice that the content in question has 7 references. Whether or not the cited sources are reliable or not can be investigated and discussed, but Wikipedia takes a Neutral Point of View, which requires a balance of "good" and "bad" information about the subject in proportion to what is reliably published about them. It should not be used to present a "sanitised" image of a subject, which would border on Promotion.
Speculating on another editor's motives for adding information is bordering on failing to Assume Good Faith. Since you seem to have such a concern for this subject (and aside from this post have only edited the article about him), can you assure us that you have no Conflict of Interest to declare?
Disclaimer: I have never previously heard of this subject, live on a different continent, and have no personal stake in this matter, beyond seeing Wikipedia be properly used. {The poster formerly known as 87.81.230.195} 90.201.73.76 (talk) 11:52, 27 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Yes, exactly my point. Well said. see Lay ecclesial ministry. But they are not clergy. The title does not confer membership into the clergy. Only Ordination can do that, and that includes the Greek Orthodox and Anglican churches. Lay and secular do not equal clergy. But I can understand it seeming so.

How to cite the same book ( Print vs Ebook)[edit]

I'm working on a draft with a friend and I've come across an issue where I have a book that has two different Books pages and also two different ISBN numbers, despite being the same book. The only difference between them I can discern is that one is a print edition and the other is an Ebook edition, despite both being accessible and viewable in Books now. You can even see a link in the upper left of the former stating "View Ebook" that links to the latter page. What's the best way to cite these in a reference list? Should they be separate references entirely? SilverserenC 22:37, 26 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Hello, Sivlerseren. A citation of a book is to the book - possibly to a particular edition of the book, but not to any particular format. The citation should contain useful bibliographic information such as title, author, publisher, date, page number (in the edition of that date). For convenience of the reader it is helpful to include things like ISBN, and link to Books, but these are not an essential part of the citation. If you find two different formats have different ISBNs you should ideally give the ISBN of the copy you consulted (it sometimes used to be the case that hardback and paperback versions of a book had different ISBNs - I don't know whether this still happens). Some Ebook formats do not have fixed pagination (it depends on the user's formatting choices), so it seems undesirable to cite that format if it can be avoided. I guess that if you find the passage in a Books snippet and can verify it has the same information, you can then cite that edition, as you have consulted it.
This is a bit of a rambling answer: does it help? ColinFine (talk) 23:21, 26 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
A bit, @ColinFine:. The main issue here is that when searching the draft subject's name in the preview options for both Books pages, you actually get different results. One shows two pages discussing the subject and the other shows 5 different pages, including the Appendix, discussing the person. Herein lies the dilemma and is probably why my fellow editor included them as separate references. SilverserenC 23:24, 26 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Determining Consensus[edit]

Hello,

I am interested in helping out with moving pages, but I am worried that I will misjudge consensus at WP:RM. Is there anything that I should look out for when determining consensus at that page? And another question : Would one editor supporting a move until the time elapses be considered a consensus? I am trying to learn how to properly determine the conditions for this policy. CollectiveSolidarity (talk) 03:25, 27 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@CollectiveSolidarity: If there are no objections at all after a reasonable time, make the change. This is a logical extension of WP:BRD, wherin you may simply make a change without any previous discussion because a dissenter may revert your change to indicate disagreement. Opening a discussion prior to a change is a good idea for a move, though, because a dissenter has a harder time reversing a move than reverting an edit. -Arch dude (talk) 16:30, 27 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Very strange formatting issues on Ecocide article[edit]

Hi all

I've been doing some work on the Ecocide article and have a very strange issue, when I try to bold the title of the article it doesn't work properly, it ends up italicising the title and making the entire first paragraph. Is there an issue with the template above or something? Have tried both source editor and VE to fix it but neither work.

Thanks

Publish?[edit]

Hi, I'm new as a contributor on Wikipedia. I started with a short text on a new article in my Sandbox. I checked the text and it's now ready to be published in Wikipedia. How can I do this? If I'm in the Sandbox and click on the Publish button, the text does not appear in Wikipedia. Thnx for your help. — Preceding unsigned comment added by MKenter (talkcontribs) 16:18, 27 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Hello, MKenter. Because absolutely everything in Wikipedia is publically visible if you know where to look, the "Save changes" butten was altered a while ago to read "publish". This means "Save it so that it is visible to anybody": it doesn't mean "Make it part of the encyclopaedia". I have added a header to your sandbox, so that you can submit it for review and eventual acceptance into the encyclopaedia. However, please don't hit that button yet, as it is not ready, and that will waste everybody's time.
Please read your first article to understand what is needed in an article. The reason I say that it is not ready is that it has not a single reference independent of the Committee. Wikipedia is not interested in what the subject of an article says or wants to say about themselves, or what their associates say about them. Wikipedia is only interested in what people who have no connection with the subject, and who have not been prompted or fed information on behalf of the subject, have chosen to publish about the subject in reliable sources. If there are few or no such sources, then no article is possible: the jargon for this is that the subject is then not notable.
Please read about notability to understand the minimum requirements on an organisation to be the subject of an article. ColinFine (talk) 16:40, 27 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Removing a category from a deleted section[edit]

I believe that the fact that the item was listed in the category in italics means that it is a redirection page. ColinFine (talk) 17:11, 27 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Writing a page for WikiPedia[edit]

Hello,

I am the founder of a ministry. There is no information yet about it on Wikipedia. I need to create a page for it. I read a little bit about how to do it but do not believe I'm qualified to write it.

I'm trying to find assistance. Is there someone that could assist with writing a page or does that not exist?

If this is about God's Closet, I very much doubt that it meets Wikipedia's standards of notability, and is therefore not a suitable subject for an article here. Maproom (talk) 17:40, 27 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Hi Merryl! Creating a new article is one of the hardest things to do on Wikipedia, especially if you do not have a lot of experience editing existing Wikipedia articles and when you have a conflict of interest (COI). To learn how to edit, you could view Help:Introduction and try The Wikipedia Adventure. I suggest spending a significant amount of time editing existing articles to hone your skills. Once you're ready to create an article, you would gather multiple independent reliable sources that have provided significant coverage of the subject, and determine whether it meets Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, called "notability". If so, you could follow the instructions at Help:Your first article, and be prepared for a process that may include months of waiting, rejections, and rewrites, before an article is created. If you are successful, then you could never edit the article directly due to your COI, but could submit edit requests on the article talk page. Hope this helps. GoingBatty (talk) 17:43, 27 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Hello, Merryl. I'm afraid that "I need to create a page for it" indicates that, like many people, you have a fundamental misunderstanding of what Wikipedia is. If at some time there is an article about your ministry (rather than a "page for" it), the article will not belong to you, will not be controlled by you, and should be almost entirely based on what people unconnected with your ministry have chosen to publish about it - including any adverse or critical writing as well as approving - not on what you or your associates say or want to say.

Chah-e articles[edit]

Would it be a good idea to nominate all of the "Chah-e village" articles for speedy deletion under criteria G3? For about a year, there's been consensus that many Iranian village articles made by the user Carlossuarez46 are not actually villages. In fact, many of them are gas stations, slaughterhouses, farms, estates, etc. "Chah-e", in particular, almost certainly means "well". So given the translations, these Chah-e articles are almost 100% hoaxes and should be deleted, however I'm not sure if SD is the correct route. --VersaceSpace 🌃 20:04, 27 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

It would obviously be wrong to G3 those that are not "blatant hoaxes" or "pure vandalism" and I'm not sure any fit into these categories at all. Are there really any G3 candidates? I know nothing about Iranian place names but in English many (nearly all?) places with "well" in the name are not actually wells although they may have been named after where there was once a well. See, for example Bradwell. Thincat (talk) 20:48, 27 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I understand where you're coming from, but Chah-e Ali Akbar Shahzehi (well of Ali Akbar Shahzehi) is 100% not on the same level as Bradwell. After reading up on it more, it's definitely inappropriate to G3 these as the suspected hoaxes were not "blatant", but I don't think it's wise to just boil this down to an American equivalent. --VersaceSpace 🌃 21:08, 27 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@VersaceSpace It looks like these need to be deleted, but no one seems to know under what criterion. Non-notable perhaps? 71.228.112.175 (talk) 05:44, 28 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I got a suspected sockpuppet issue with an administrator[edit]

This administrator, seems to favor a particular guy who is involved in edit war. Its quite apparent he is engaging in content restriction to favor his business needs. My ongoing dispute wiht this guy was intervened by the administrator LeoFrank, who reverted only my changes.He doesnt seem to follow his own suggestions in talking before acting(reverting). There is also a contradiction in his policy enforcement. While he maintains airport destination cities can't be cited by airline booking engine sources (if you are shocked you are not alone), he adopts an one eye closed approach for similar citings in another airport. While he removes cities that are not cited in one airport page,he reverted my delete of similar uncited cities in the other airport.

If admins collude with users to promote financial interests, Wikipedia is definitely not a place for these folks!!!!

Need opinions on a draft[edit]

I would like your opinions whether you think this draft User:Dwnloda/sandbox is good enough to be submitted to the AFC and whether you see any issues with it or what edits or changes you recommend before it is submitted to the AFC.

@Dwnloda: I see that you have declared your status of WP:PAID in regard to the article. I am not an AFC reviewer but the draft seems adequately sourced and is not promotional. The issue, as with many biographies of living people, will be whether it demonstrates they meet the relevant notability criteria and I see that you have sensibly mentioned how the draft does that, in your opinion.

  • @Yann: Help desk discussions tend to be archived a little faster than discussions on other noticeboards perhaps; I believe the idea is to keep at most three or four days worth of discussions visible on the main HD page so as to keep the page somewhat easy to navigate; however, you don't really need to "unarchive" discussions like you did in this case if you want add something else to the discussion; it's OK to continue archived discussions on their respective archive pages. If you want to revive a previously archived discussion on the main HD page, it probably better to simply add a link to the archived discussion and then add your new comments instead of copying and pasting the entire discussion back onto the main HD page. -- Marchjuly (talk) 08:06, 28 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

How do I hold a site-wide RfC on changing a Wiki guideline?[edit]

I want to scrap the Wikipedia:Article size#Size guideline. How do I hold a site-wide RfC for this? Ak-eater06 (talk) 18:16, 28 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Hello, Ak-eater06. I think WP:VPPR would be a good place to start. ColinFine (talk) 18:24, 28 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Milepost table looks wrong[edit]

On U.S._Route_75_in_Kansas#Junction_list, after "US-54 – Eureka, Iola", the milepost cells are shifted to the right. What might be causing this? weeklyd3 (message me | my contributions) 20:05, 28 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Never mind, I accidentally put a milepost into the lspan parameter. It's right now. weeklyd3 (message me | my contributions) 20:06, 28 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

June 29[edit]

Can I change a container category into a regular category?[edit]

Hi there, I received a notification when editing Category_talk:Israeli_women that the help desk might be a better place to ask, so -

Currently, Israeli women is a container category. However, it has few pages in its subcategories and seems analogous to Jewish women or Women in Israel, which do allow adding individual people to the category. Also, Israeli Jews is conceptually and demographically bigger than Israeli women, which is not constrained to being a container category.

Would it be possible for me to change the category type for Category:Israeli women to allow for categorizing individual people's pages to it?

Tamar Marvin (talk) (contribs) 04:36, 29 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Not a good idea IMO. There are a lot of notable Israeli women, so WP:DIFFUSE applies. Also note that Category:Jewish women explicitly states that "Articles on individual women should not be added directly to this category" (so the women that are listed shouldn't be there) and Category:Women in Israel doesn't have any individuals as entries.

Using Wikipidea[edit]

Hi Everyone I have a site https:printersvalley.com/ and I want to use some Wikipedia pages in it, is there some kind of API available for it ? I don't know I am confused ? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bunty9120 (talkcontribs) 13:23, 29 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Yes, there is an API, Bunty9120. You need to read this page on mediawiki. I suggest you also read WP:REUSE. Good luck.... Mike Turnbull (talk) 14:14, 29 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

How to clear notification section on my talk page?[edit]

My notification message history is too long and I want to clean notification history section from my talk page. Is there a shortcut for this action? The Supermind (talk) 13:34, 29 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

In general, there are two options for your Talk Page, The Supermind. Either set up archiving (see Help:Archiving (plain and simple)) or edit the whole page manually from time to time in order to delete the bits you no longer want. I don't use archiving on my Talk Page but every six months or so I edit out parts of it, knowing they can always be found again in the Page History if ever wanted.

Navboxes not correctly displayed[edit]

Hi everyone. I just saw that two navigation boxes at the bottom of Yuzuru Hanyu's bios page are not correctly displayed. I can only see:

#invoke:Navbox
#invoke:Authority control

What's the reason behind that and how can that issue be fixed? Thank you very much in advance Henni147 (talk) 15:00, 29 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Henni147: It seems like that page has reached a template limit, here specifically the post-expand include size. Victor Schmidt mobil (talk) 15:45, 29 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
