Speedy deletion nomination of Raycom/LF Sports[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Raycom/LF Sports requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about an organization or company, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. QVVERTYVS (hm?) 12:18, 6 May 2014 (UTC)

  • I wish people would look at this stuff before just deleting something that has been around for 8 years. Raycom Sports is very much a notable company and a fixture in sports broadcasting. Raycom/LF Sports was the name of this entity for a few years when Raycom and LF Sports events were co-branded, before Raycom purchased Lincoln Financial Sports. While I have no opinion whatsoever on whether this rates a separate article, if you don't believe it does, you should have turned it back into a redirect rather than having it deleted. I created it as a redirect 8 years ago. Someone else made an article out of it. Whether the article should exist or not, I don't care, but if it shouldn't then certainly the redirect should. --B (talk) 22:49, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

You, letter B, deleted my redirect page!!![edit]

It was only just a redirect page to my user page, but you definitely deleted it, letter B. — Preceding unsigned comment added by William Pina (talkcontribs) 04:24, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

  • Redirects from article space into user space are not permitted. --B (talk) 11:21, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

ARE YOU INSANE?!?!?!?!?!?![edit]

How could articles redirect to user pages but they are not permitted? That's no fare, letter B!!!! — Preceding unsigned comment added by William Pina (talkcontribs) 19:15, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

Just because the technical means to do something exist does not mean it is a permissible action. Redirects into user space are not permissible. --B (talk) 19:25, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

About something you wrote above[edit]

Your last addition to the section above, "Destroying the work of others", was exceptionally well put. I hope you don't mind if I copy-and-adapt it in future similar circumstances. Jeh (talk) 20:03, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

A Question[edit]

Can you leave the codes for your conservative and christian ribbons on my talk page? Erik L'Ensle :) (talk) 17:29, 20 October 2014 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:IHS logo.png[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:IHS logo.png. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 21:54, 29 October 2014 (UTC)


Hello: It looks as if – with good reason – you've prevented the recreation of Portal:Example, but, for the sake of examples/demonstrations such as Portal:Example (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs), would you consider recreating/reprotecting it and its talk page with the following content..?:


{{Namespace example page}}

[[Category:Namespace example pages]]

[Portal talk:Example]:

{{Namespace example page}}

In other words, as with the pages Category:Example and Category talk:Example.

Yours hopefully, Sardanaphalus (talk) 09:10, 1 December 2014 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done Though I don't necessarily endorse creation (or non-creation) of the page, the purpose of protection was to prevent accidental creation, not to be a ban on intentionally creating something there. I have therefore removed the protection. --B (talk) 15:20, 1 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Thank you. I've now created the pages as described. Sardanaphalus (talk) 00:25, 3 December 2014 (UTC)
