Speedy deletion[edit]

Give me a bit. I just found this new article and am performing cleanup and referencing right this very moment. - Dravecky (talk) 05:26, 8 September 2010 (UTC)

Okay, I've significantly expanded the article, added categories, added an infobox, resolved the tagging, and added references from reliable third-party sources. As I feel the article now satisfies WP:GNG, I have removed the speedy deletion tag. - Dravecky (talk) 06:03, 8 September 2010 (UTC)
I hope you're going to update the article when the dates have passed by. PKT(alk) 19:27, 29 October 2010 (UTC)

Material for update[edit]

Again I'm not editing the article itself because of WP:COI, but the following information may be useful to editors. SFContario 1 included the following noteworthy occurrences:

  • The Aurora nominee pin presentation ceremony, where pins were presented to all past nominees in Ontario (who could be found) over the past thirty years of the award's history.
  • Mike Glicksohn, Hugo-winning fan editor, attended SFContario on the Friday of the convention. This was the last science fiction convention he attended before his death in March 2011.
  • Karen Linsley, songwriter and performer of the Mars Society's anthem "Pioneers of Mars", returned to public view after a hiatus of many years (after the death of her partner Lloyd Landa) as Filk Guest of Honour.
  • Artist Billy Tackett came to his first appearance outside the United States to be artist guest of honour at SFContario.
  • A fundraising auction raised over a thousand dollars for Regent Park Youth Focus Media Arts Centre and for the Canadian Unity Fan Fund.

Some media links:

Okay, none of the "events", with the weak possibility of the Aurora pin thing, are of encyclopedic note. The YouTube vid is even less useful. You should have provided an author for the AE article. That said: thanks for keeping COI issues in mind. --Orange Mike | Talk 17:44, 8 April 2011 (UTC)
