Orphaned non-free image File:Find My iPhone icon.png[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Find My iPhone icon.png. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in section F5 of the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 17:17, 28 July 2018 (UTC)

Hi, I'm RonBot, a script that checks new non-free file uploads. I have found that the subject image that you recently uploaded was more than 5% in excess of the Non-free content guideline size of 100,000 pixels. I have tagged the image for a standard reduction, which (for jpg/gif/png/svg files) normally happens within a day. Please check the reduced image, and make sure that the image is not excessively corrupted. Other files will be added to Category:Wikipedia non-free file size reduction requests for manual processing. There is a full seven-day period before the original oversized image will be hidden; during that time you might want to consider editing the original image yourself (perhaps an initial crop to allow a smaller reduction or none at all). A formula for calculation the desired size can be found at WP:Image resolution, along with instructions on how to tag the image in the rare cases that it requires an oversized image (typically about 0.2% of non-free uploads are tagged as necessarily oversized). Please contact the bot owner if you have any questions, or you can ask them at Wikipedia talk:Non-free content. RonBot (talk) 17:12, 29 July 2018 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Arlo Technologies[edit]

Hello Daylen,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Arlo Technologies for deletion, because it seems to be promotional, rather than an encyclopedia article.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions.

Reply[edit]

Hi, thanks for message. Apologies for the YFA and COI tags, you will appreciate that most such promo articles are written by company hacks, so I tend to add those comments as a matter of course. G11 deletion doesn't seem like an appropriate step for an article about a company of this size.—The size or notability of a company does not exempt it from G11.

I deleted your article because

  • it did not provide independent verifiable sources to enable us to verify the facts and show that it meets the notability guidelines. Sources that are not acceptable include those linked to the company, press releases, YouTube, IMDB, social media and other sites that can be self-edited, blogs, websites of unknown or non-reliable provenance, and sites that are just reporting what the company claims or interviewing its management. You gave some references, but most were to the company itself or reviews and press releases about its products, some of which even gave prices. What we need is independent third party sources talking about the company. Wikipedia is not a product catalogue or review sites, and articles like this which are all about the products with product reviews as references, are not acceptable. Articles must be neutral and encyclopaedic, this seemed promotional in structure and tone, and Onel5969 was correct to tag for G11.
  • I don't know if you are aware that the notability guidelines for organisations and companies have been updated to reduce company spamming. The primary criteria has five components that must be evaluated separately and independently to determine if it is met:
  1. significant coverage in
  2. independent,
  3. multiple,
  4. reliable,
  5. secondary sources.
Note that an individual source must meet all four criteria to be counted towards notability. I don't think most of your refs meet those criteria. It helps to show notability if you include hard verifiable facts such as the number of employees, turnover or profits, but apart from a bit of history, we know nothing (although employee numbers are in the infobox). It's worrying when facts such as employee numbers and the company headquarters are relegated to an infobox, while most of the article consists of plugs for their products.

Before attempting to write an article again, please make sure that the topic meets the notability criteria linked above, and check that you can find independent third party sources.

The fact that other articles have not been deleted doesn't help you, either they met the criteria or should be deleted as well. See other stuff exists. Also note that many articles would have been accepted before the notability guidelines were made stricter.

If you want to try again, I could restore the infobox and opening paragraphs to a sandbox, let me know Jimfbleak - talk to me? 07:27, 5 August 2018 (UTC)

Hi @Jimfbleak: I created the article through a transfer of content from Netgear, as Arlo is now a separate legal entity. As a one day old company, it is hard to find many reliable secondary sources regarding the company. I only performed the split, so the products section was not written by myself. I agree that deleting that section might be the best course of action. If you don't believe that Arlo meets notability guidelines, should a reverse merger be performed into the Netgear article? It just seems kind of weird for a NYSE listed company to be housed in an article relating to another company; however, Netgear has still retained 86% ownership of Arlo. Thoughts? Daylen (talk) 07:47, 5 August 2018 (UTC)
Perhaps it's WP:Too soon? The real issue, though is the product list. I think if that goes, so does most of the G11 issue. If stuff that we already know, like its headquarters and staffing, appears in the text as well as the infobox, that will also make it look more balanced, and any other issues can be dealt with if they arise. As I said, let me know if you want me to restore as suggested. Jimfbleak - talk to me? 08:27, 5 August 2018 (UTC)

I was pinged on this discussion somehow, but I don't see my name mentioned. Just wanted to ensure I wasn't needed. Sock (tock talk) 14:51, 5 August 2018 (UTC)

To Sock and Favre1fan93, Jimfbleak accidentally transcluded Onel5969's user page, where I assume we are all mentioned. I also got three notifications. — Insertcleverphrasehere (or here) 15:29, 5 August 2018 (UTC)
Thanks Insertcleverphrasehere. I inadvertently linked to {{User:Onel5969}} instead of {{u|Onel5969}} It took a couple of further attempts before I realised what the problem was, so I guess that's why you all got three pings, presumably via the transcluded page. Apologies to all, including anyone else enticed here Jimfbleak - talk to me? 16:09, 5 August 2018 (UTC)
@Jimfbleak: If you move the article to Draft:Arlo Technologies, I can redo the section as a paragraph. Thanks! Daylen (talk) 21:18, 5 August 2018 (UTC)
Done Jimfbleak - talk to me? 05:24, 6 August 2018 (UTC)

Nomination of Blockstack for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Blockstack is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Blockstack until a consensus is reached, and anyone, including you, is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Jtbobwaysf (talk) 19:13, 9 August 2018 (UTC)

Growth team updates #1[edit]

Welcome to the first newsletter for the new Growth team!  

The Growth Team's objective is to work on software changes that help retain new contributors in mid-size Wikimedia projects. We will be starting with Wikipedias, but we hope these changes will benefit every community.

8 ideas we consider: tell us what you think about them!

We are considering new features to build, that could retain new editors in mid-size Wikipedias. We will be testing new ideas in Czech and Korean Wikipedias, and then we'll talk to more communities (yours!) about adopting the ideas that work well.

We have posted the 8 ideas we are considering. We would really appreciate your thoughts and the thoughts from your community. Please share the ideas, and tell us what do you and your community think of those ideas before September 9.

Share your experiences with newcomers

We want to hear about what is working and what is not working for new contributors in your wiki. We also want to hear any reactions, questions, or opinions on our work. Please post on the team’s talk page, in any language!

Learn more about us

You can visit our team page to find out why our team was formed and how we are thinking about new editors, and our project page for detailed updates on the first project we'll work on.
