SMARTASSISTANT entry deleted. Why?Edit

Hello, I was just in the middle of editing the listing for SMARTASSISTANT and you deleted it claiming it was SPAM. What was the exact reason for that?

I'll be grateful for your response.

Regards D.

I think in fact you want to refer to me, as I deleted the page. The point is that SMARTASSISTANT does not fulfil the notability criteria. Your addition seems to have the main objective to have it listed in wikidata, as to gain more attention. This is why I deleted is as "advertising". The spam label may not have been completely appropriate. Lymantria (talk) 09:14, 8 June 2015 (UTC)

Propdental page deletedEdit

Hello,

I created a page https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q20045034 with the information regarding my business. I saw that you deleted it, marking as Spam/advertising. The page that I created was purely descriptive, without any spam or advertising. I was trying to follow the examples of international brands, such as Nike or PepsiCo. I am sure, if you compared my page to those ones you would not find anything spammy or disturbing. Can you please review that page once again? Or can you please indicate what exactly you considered disturbing on that page?

Thanks

Propdental page deleted 2Edit

Hello again,

I am sorry, I couldn't figure out how to continue the same thread so I had to open a new discussion. I still don't see how is that reasoning applicable to this case. There are numerous examples of descriptive pages of businesses listed in Wikidata, for example: https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q19794151

Does that company fulfil the notability criteria according to your judgement?

Also, in notability it goes: "Note that the guidelines below are intentionally left a bit vague." I believe that the existence of numerous links to my website and references to it at various blogs and other online media can be considered as the following attribute: "It refers to an instance of a clearly identifiable conceptual or material entity. The entity must be notable, in the sense that it can be described using serious and publicly available references."

My business is a material entity that can be described using serious and publicly available references. So, I believe that I fulfil notability criteria.

Do you agree with this reasoning?

Thanks

No, I don't and I don't think that the business you refer to should have an item here either. I nominated Q19794151 for deletion here. Let's see if other admins agree. Lymantria (talk) 16:46, 12 June 2015 (UTC)

HeyEdit

Quick question for you,

Im about to update some descriptions on Wikidata. Can you translate for me "Rural Commune in Morroco" (Q17318027), and "village in Indonesia" into Dutch? Thank you in advance. Artix Kreiger (talk) 19:46, 27 February 2018 (UTC)

Hey @Artix Kreiger:. The first one can be translated as "rurale gemeente in Marokko" and the second one as "dorp in Indonesiƫ". Kind regards, Wiki13 talk 19:52, 27 February 2018 (UTC)
I do want to note that for a sizeable amount of the second one I believe there is already a description which is more descriptive, so you might want to take caution there. --Wiki13 talk 19:54, 27 February 2018 (UTC)

Page Q66385292 deleted, Why?Edit

Hi, I see that my page was deleted as spam. Could you tell me why? As far as I see I try to create a page similar to ones that already exist and belong to the same niche (https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q1937850). All the text were valid according to the entity. My only intent is to create and validate the entity. Will be waiting for your reply.
