Hi. Would you please take a look at this detail re. US Airways Flight 1549 and contribute to resolving the discrepancy b/w what's stated in the article, what's logically possible, and what's reported in at least half of the sources cited? Greatly appreciate your attention to this matter and hope it is something that can be resolved quickly and w/o complication. Thanks, Azx2 19:21, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for July 28[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited William Barber II, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Mother Jones. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

RefScript[edit]

Hi! You have to make a bookmark. Instead of putting into the bookmark an URL, you put the script. It's a nice feature of modern internet browsers, so you can create bookmarks that run scripts - they are called Bookmarklets. I have added a "How to use the script" section to the page. I should have made such a section from the beginning. Please tell me if it can help you to create the bookmarklet. If you have any questions, please ask me - it will help me to make the script more user-friendly. Also, if the script doesn't work well with a particular newspaper article, please let me know it. Sometimes the script might not capture the publication date or the author name. That's because some newspaper use more than one formatting style or they simply change the way they publish those fields. Therefore I have to update the script sometimes. Thanks. —  Ark25  (talk) 23:42, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

This is much easier than having to surf to another URL (you would have to make a bookmark for that URL anyways). You click the bookmarklet just like clicking any bookmark and you get the formatted reference. I have no idea where can I save my script in a website - that would be more complicated to use and would require me to modify the script. Although it would help the users to have an idea what the script does and how it works. —  Ark25  (talk) 00:14, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

Got it. Thanks! I'll try it out when I have time. I did a couple test runs just now, on HuffPost and WSJ. Here's what I got: for HuffPost[1], and for WSJ[2]. It didn't grab the author, but not bad! :-) Tks again. Benefac (talk) 19:15, 31 July 2014 (UTC)
I updated the script for Huffington[3] and I added WSJ[4] - although I only tested this single link for WSJ.
If you want to title case the author name (transform "CAROLYN THOMPSON" into "Carolyn Thompson", then change the var AuthorNameTitleCase = "No"; into var AuthorNameTitleCase = "Yes";). It will work most of the time, sometimes it will not do it correctly if the author name is too complicated - it will make it like "Carolyn thompson" or so). Thanks for feedback :) —  Ark25  (talk) 21:28, 1 August 2014 (UTC)
Thank you! Btw, I'm not familiar with corresponding on Wikipedia. Do you get notified when I reply to your comment in my own Talk page? (I suppose only if you choose to Watch my talk page?) Is the norm that I reply to you here, to keep a single thread, or that I go comment in your Talk page? (The latter would be rather disjointed, I'd think.) Tks again! Benefac (talk) 23:25, 1 August 2014 (UTC)
Sorry for late answer. Yes, that's the best way to make conversations, on a single thread. I do not get notified but I can see that you edited this page in my watchlist. If you want to notify me, then add {{u|Ark25}} and then I get a notification. It's a new and very nice feature to let someone know that you replied to them or to invite someone to join a conversation or to let them know that you talk about them. In this case it's not really needed, I am supposed to check if you replied to me in your own user talkpage. I will put a {{u|Benefac}} on a talk page to invite you to make comments there :) —  Ark25  (talk) 22:47, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
By the way, if you have any beginner questions, don't hesitate to ask me. I'll try to be helpful. There is also a whole project for such things. —  Ark25  (talk) 23:03, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Richard M. Locke[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Richard M. Locke requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page appears to be an unambiguous copyright infringement. This page appears to be a direct copy from http://watson.brown.edu/people/faculty/locke. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images taken from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites or other printed material as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website or image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text or image — which means allowing other people to use it for any reason — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. The same holds if you are not the owner but have their permission. If you are not the owner and do not have permission, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission for how you may obtain it. You might want to look at Wikipedia's copyright policy for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. — Diannaa 🍁 (talk) 14:36, 2 December 2017 (UTC)

Suicide? No. Far from it. Leader of N-VA. Has already made a political decision. They agree. To take the burden of crime on the conscience of the Flemish nation. Maybe not worth?

Proposed deletion of Encrypgen[edit]

Notice

The article Encrypgen has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Company seems notable but the page creator has done a poor job. Draftifying would be better for others to work on this.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Encrypgen moved to draftspace[edit]

An article you recently created, Encrypgen, does not have enough sources and citations as written to remain published. It needs more citations from reliable, independent sources. (?) Information that can't be referenced should be removed (verifiability is of central importance on Wikipedia). I've moved your draft to draftspace (with a prefix of "Draft:" before the article title) where you can incubate the article with minimal disruption. When you feel the article meets Wikipedia's general notability guideline and thus is ready for mainspace, please click on the "Submit your draft for review!" button at the top of the page.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Draft:Encrypgen, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, group, product, service, person, or point of view and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become encyclopedic.
