Hello. Per the notice you received above, a tag had been placed on [[:{{{1}}}]] requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. Please note that after review, I have declined the deletion request so you do not need to worry about this article being speedily deleted. Please note that speedy deletion is only one of three deletion processes on Wikipedia; my decline does not prevent users from invoking the separate, longer term deletion methods of proposed deletion or bringing the article to articles for deletion. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this.

Speedy deletion of Albert Einstein declined[edit]

Hello. Per the notice you received above, a tag had been placed on Albert Einstein requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. Please note that after review, I have declined the deletion request on the basis that the article properly indicated importance by noting that he won the Nobel Prize in Physics, so you do not need to worry about this article being speedily deleted, and there is no longer any need to place the template {{hangon}} in the article. Please note that speedy deletion is only one of three deletion processes on Wikipedia; my decline does not prevent users from invoking the separate, longer term deletion methods of proposed deletion or bringing the article to articles for deletion.
