I can assume that any article about the photographer will include at least one link to the commons photos.

But first, some notable wikis:

(The above was written at the beginning of this study. I did not realize at that time that there may have been an article on the photographer on every wikipedia, because those had been deleted by a steward, without any discussion on meta or notice on the local wikis. The steward is alleging "sock puppetry" based on weak inferences, essentially that an account is interested in the work of the photographer (is a w:WP:SPA) and shows certain similar characteristics, evidence that would normally be accepted on en.wikipedia as raising a suspicion of sock puppetry but not proving it). It is highly unlikely that all the involved users are sock puppets. However, the mass deletion of the articles has concealed some of the primary evidence that could be used to assess the claim of sock puppetry, specifically edit timing. I captured the en.wikipedia data below at a time when the article was undeleted and unchallenged. The deletion discussion on en.wikipedia saw very low participation, and policy-based reasons for deletion were not given. --Abd (discusscontribs) 19:51, 12 April 2014 (UTC))

google translation of nomination:

It is by far one of the most promotional pages I've ever seen. Behind this page is a painstaking work of promoting Wikipedia by leaving stunned. In practice, a series sock puppet created in the years 557 pages of 557 + 557 different wiki user pages on as many wikis. They proceeded to charge hundreds of thousands of photos by entering wikilink and all photographic books of the author. The page is built to measure our compliance with formal criteria and standards with a plethora of citations in violation of copyright law to build a text terribly emphatic. From my point of view, or delete or decreases by 80%. - Vito (msg) 24:47, 27 March 2014 (CET)
("Vito" is Vituzzu) Perhaps someone who knows Italian can do better than google at translating the above. "Hundreds of thousands of photos"? What is he talking about? Sock puppets of whom? There were not "557" pages created "in years." There was a large number of wiki articles, one per language edition of Wikipedia (with a couple of exceptions). The "557 pages" were user pages created in three days, most of them during a single 13-hour session. There is nothing connecting those user pages with the articles other than the name of the photographer. Vituzzu has inferred that all this was done by one person, or was paid for by one person. And then has asserted his inference as fact. It's unlikely, from my review of the evidence, that they were all the same, this way.
If an author has "photographic books," normally published, the author is likely to be notable, from reviews. So far, the issue of notability has been inadequately addressed. For wikipedia aricles, that should be the only issue. Comments in the it.wikipedia discussion suggested deleting the article, then starting again from scratch -- which implies notability. That would more sanely be done by stubbing the article and rebuilding, leaving the history intact and readable. By deleting the article, evidence of possible sock puppetry -- I had begun collecting data on the Article subpage -- was concealed. --Abd (discusscontribs) 18:58, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

From the sampling above, Abd concludes that it is likely that

  • Every wiki (or almost) on which Ferdinando Castaldo edited, there was an article on Augusto De Luca. Deleted by Vituzzu where possible.
  • The entire list (or almost) of wikis on which FC created a user page had such an article. There were thus, then, at least roughly, 174 total articles he edited.

FC is blocked on only one wiki, and the block was 27 March, 2014, after the global lock. contributions.

Lists for other creators do not show wikis listed already.


bulk of contributions, adding photographs of notable persons to their articles.

For example, Laura De Fusco became this, with the photo. At the time, there was an article on De Luca on it.wikipedia, it had been established in 2010. Vituzzu removed the link to the photographer with [3], "(promo fotografica)."

w:Wikipedia:Manual of style/Captions has, about photos, Who took it? (Generally, this is only included in the caption if the photographer is notable). At the time GIUNCO added captions to photos linking to the local article for Augusto De Luca, these were based on standing articles, that he did not create.

From Elvira Pisanti

EP is blocked on one wiki: w:pl:User:Contributions/Elvira Pisanti, Blocked indefinitely. Reason: crosswiki spam, 14:05, 27 mar 2014. All EP edits are standing on pl.wikipedia, including w:pl:Augusto De Luca, which EP created in 2011. EP did not edit after May 2013. This is obviously a local block based on the global lock, which has not been publicized. There is no notice or warning on the user page. The ADL article is standing with no deletion nomination. The ADL user page was deleted by the same administrator.
