Old discussion[edit]

As it is now, this page sounds like an advertisment for Arcadia Publishing. Really it is, since it was copied directly from their site. Could someone who knows something about the publisher edit this? Gershwinrb 06:14, 28 November 2005 (UTC)

Yes, go ahead. I feel exactly the same way - shouldn't be allowed, I'm sure it's breaks one of the Wikipedia rules.

The text was updated to correct errors that appeared on the Wikipedia page and utilized SOME of the information from the Arcadia Publishing website. I hold the copyright to the text from the Arcadia Publishing website and permit its use under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License. I will also submit this information in an e-mail from an address associated with the original publication to the permissions department. Pjnorlander 19:18, 13 August 2007 (UTC)

As my six books published by Arcadia lack an index, I wonder whether their not doing so merits mention. 68.187.198.23 (talk) 00:29, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

Contesting speedy delete[edit]

Added this article as it was a redlink on several existing Wikipedia pages many which have it listed as a publisher in the reference section. So far it is only a one line stub, so not sure how that can be advertisement. May expand it later after comparing other Wikipedia articles on publishers. Petersam 23:57, 24 August 2007 (UTC)

After comparing other Wikipedia articles on publishers (see Category:Book publishing companies [1]), I believe that this article should remain. They are an independent publisher who contacts local editors to write photo essays on local and regional history about their communities, sports, campuses, work, transportation, etc. Also, many editors including myself have used Arcadia books as references for their articles; see Special:Whatlinkshere/Arcadia_Publishing.

Possible source for expansion[edit]

WP:COI edit[edit]

DISCLOSURE: I made a personal Conflict of Interest edit to this article today by adding a very small image of one of Arcadia's books -- one that I myself wrote re Austin -- hence the unquestionable COI. I did it because the image current does not appear in an article at present, only a talk page, and at the end of today (August 1, 2010) it will automatically be removed from the image database if not used in an article. I was hoping to preserve it for a future use so looked for a proper page to place it, at least temporarily. I can always re-load later, instead, and I certainly understand if any editor wants to remove it on WP:COI basis, or for other article reasons. But that was my thinking.
