Need help with disruptive IPs...[edit]

Peter Pan[edit]

One user continuously adds nonsense and completely unnecessary (and completely inaccurate) extension to certain quotes. I request that that article be protected and this user be blocked indefinitely. WikiLubber (talk) 22:48, 2 July 2018 (UTC)

Looks like this one was already protected. ~ UDScott (talk) 16:11, 5 July 2018 (UTC)
And the vandal continues its vandalism by vandalizing Aladdin. I mean, "screaming bloody murder" is from the vandal's point of view, not everyone else's. WikiLubber (talk) 21:51, 17 July 2018 (UTC)

Thomas and Friends-related articles[edit]

Especially in The Adventure Begins, where the IPs continuously change Sir Topham Hatt's name to The Fat Director (which he was NEVER called in either the TV series nor the films). I request that these IPs be blocked indefinitely and that the pages be blocked for no less than the same period of time. I reported them months ago, but no matter how much I try, these IPs never stop. WikiLubber (talk) 22:48, 2 July 2018 (UTC)

I've added another year-long protection to the page. ~ UDScott (talk) 16:11, 5 July 2018 (UTC)
Thank you very much. Please do the same for the articles for each separate season, as well. WikiLubber (talk) 15:24, 6 July 2018 (UTC)
Yes check.svgY Done ~ UDScott (talk) 18:11, 6 July 2018 (UTC)

Scooter Libby deletion[edit]

You put "hoax" as the reason. That isn't true. The line I included was written on page 81 of his novel Please restore his page. ScratchMarshall (talk) 18:37, 9 July 2018 (UTC)

Fair enough - when I first tried that link, it did not properly show the book. I've restored the page. ~ UDScott (talk) 18:39, 9 July 2018 (UTC)

Category: Family films[edit]

The VFD entry says there is no consensus, however I count 5 votes voting in favor of deletion, one neutral, and only one for keeping it. I was under the impression that the neutral votes were like abstaining, seeing as how the congresses of most countries don't allow neutral votes on issues and people don't vote neutral in their elections. Statistically it's the difference between 83% in favor not factoring the neutral vote and and 71% in favor of deletion, I know 75% is the number required for a vote on administrators, but is that also the percentage needed for VFD as well, I thought the administrator voting process deliberately had a higher threshold to pass than other votes on wikiquote? I'm wondering where on Wikiquote this matter is defined. CensoredScribe (talk) 16:43, 12 July 2018 (UTC)

I'm not sure where you get your figures. In that discussion, the votes that were provided before the date of closure show 2 deletes, 1 keep, and 1 neutral. I would not call that consensus in any way, and thus I closed the vote with a Keep result. Your additional delete vote was registered months after the closure date of the vote, but even if it were included, I still do not see enough of a consensus to act otherwise (even if I disagree with the result). ~ UDScott (talk) 16:56, 12 July 2018 (UTC)
Whoops, my bad, I arrived at that incorrect figure by counting you and Ningauble both twice, along with Cirt once despite being in may of 2013 after the vote closed, hence the five figure; I did not actually factor in my own vote from 2015. Sorry about that, I'm a tad sleep deprived, I'm normally capable of basic math and looking at dates and signatures; I used to be more adept at operating under under the less than optimal conditions of minor sleep deprivation, but I see now from this instance that is no longer the case for me.
Either way, I think I'm going to list this for deletion again as it's another subjective movie marketing term that is seemingly applied mostly to movies that were never marketed that way, and can be easily confused for films featuring families as a central dynamic, which may not actually be appropriate for all ages, such as many of the entries for the wikipeia category for films about dysfunctional families. I hope discussing this matter with you doesn't count as canvasing for votes, I assume I would have to contact more than one person or start a thread on the village pump in order to meet that definition. Sorry bout that.CensoredScribe (talk) 17:33, 12 July 2018 (UTC)
Not a problem . Cheers! ~ UDScott (talk) 17:53, 12 July 2018 (UTC)

Deleted pages[edit]

Hello. What unsourced quotes did the pages Robert Morrison and Harp have just before being deleted? Thanks in advance ~ DanielTom (talk) 11:19, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

For Robert Morrison, the lone quotes was "To do what ought to be done but what would not have been done unless I did it, I thought to be my duty." Harp had two unsourced quotes: "The harp is a whole orchestra, if the performer can use its great potential appropriately." by Anna-Maria Ravnopolska-Dean and "Harpists spend 90% of their time tuning their harps and 10% playing out of tune." by Igor Stravinsky. ~ UDScott (talk) 12:52, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

Zhu Ming (thinker)[edit]

Hello, UDScott. You had deleted the article about this person which had been created under various names. However someone has creates another article under the title Zhu Zhe (thinker). The article is exactly the same and might be the same person who made the other articles. Can you see about banning his IP range if he doesn't stop. The subject is not even notable, I can't even find him when I search his name. While searching for the source, I have only come across one result: [1]. MonsterHunter32 (talk) 03:05, 18 July 2018 (UTC)


GazWild emailed me to ask that his block be lifted, and promising to behave in accordance with policy. As you were the blocking admin, I refer this to you. Cheers! BD2412 T 18:04, 19 July 2018 (UTC)

Smita Nair Jain[edit]

Dear Sir, Please see the citation. Thanks - —This unsigned comment is by HemantLko (talkcontribs) .

So it's better that you now have a link to another site. Unfortunately, citing the quote to goodreads is not very good. This site is just a place for its users to put quotes, often without sourcing them to a primary source, which is what is needed here. ~ UDScott (talk) 14:56, 20 July 2018 (UTC)

Buffy pages[edit]

Please stop deleting the Buffy Quotes I keep adding. There is no reason for you to do so. And don't try to say that there can only be 5 per episode. There a numerous episodes of this and other series that have plenty more than 5. Just check out the Sherlock page. ~ —This unsigned comment is by (talkcontribs) .

Be that as it may, just because other pages may violate the limit does not mean that the Buffy pages should as well. And by the way, that is why Sherlock is tagged for potential copyright violation for having too many quotes. I will continue to trim the quotes as needed to keep them at 5 per episode. ~ UDScott (talk) 23:04, 26 July 2018 (UTC)

Well then I guess I'll just keep un-trimming them. You should really focus on cleaning up the Teen Titans pages. They're a complete mess and somebody keeps erasing literally every line Raven speaks so the rest of the dialogue makes no sense.

Zhu Ming / Zhu Zhe[edit]

Good day. Can you please delete and salt Zhu Zhe (thinker)? Original rationale was: "re-creation of previously deleted material by long-term abuser - Wikiquote:Votes for deletion/Zhu Ming (thinker)". I have to contact an admin for this because the IP editor keeps removing the speedy deletion template and makes other disruptive edits. Thank you. PlyrStar93 (talk) 04:16, 3 August 2018 (UTC)

The Biggest Little Railway in the World[edit]

Please undelete The Biggest Little Railway in the World. Reasons. 1: I the creator was not informed and I would have immediately have contested it. While not mandatory not informing the creator is a technique to avoid dealing with a contest. 2: I as probably a lot of wikiquote newbies I only visit wikiquote intermittently. 3: Nobody did due dilligence to note this was referenced from another wiki. 4: At the time of creation I was 'helped' by another editor which gave me some confidence there was no issues. 5: Observe you did not delete the talk page at the same time which is something I would question ... is that common practice of Thankyou.
