Crash (song[edit]

Crash (song was never deleted as the result of a discussion. It was deleted with a quoted CSD#R3 rationale, but one that was obviously bogus. G4 is thus inapplicable. WilyD 09:54, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

new HamletHub page[edit]

We were blocked by you, due to a couple of reasons, one being that we created the page with a "promotional account" named HamletHub, and also because we did not edit the page for a while. [[1]]

I would like to recreate the page with a different username. I will have someone else create the page so it is not at all promotional. HamletHub was recently cited by two notable sources: Columbia Journalism Review and Street Fight Magazine

I wanted to check with you before I created the article to make sure it was ok

Ken KenDJr (talk) 12:59, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

Promotional? Yes. COI? Yes. Also usernames cannot be shared accounts. "Because we did not edit the page for a while"? No. There is no such requirement. You do not need to check with me. If the article and the subject meet the Golden Rule, then it should be ok. Do read the Plain and Simple Conflict of Interest page to see what other issues you may have. -- Alexf(talk) 16:46, 10 April 2014 (UTC)


Hi there! Looks like you blocked a guy while citing as reason Template:Uw-softerblock. Yet there is no such template? Palosirkka (talk) 06:12, 4 April 2014 (UTC)

Sure there is: Template:Uw-softerblock. -- Alexf(talk) 16:42, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

Nick Autry[edit]

Hi Alexf. I'm working to make sure all of the noteworthy people of the recording industry have facts available. One of the names I'm trying to provide information on is singer/songwriter and recording engineer Nick Autry. It seems there was a page with his name that has been deleted some time ago. There may be more names in the future as I'm working alphabetical order. Thanks!

No idea. I am currently out of town working under suboptimal conditions. Please ask at the Tea House or at AN. -- Alexf(talk) 16:48, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

Phaistonian (talk) 11:50, 11 April 2014 (UTC) Regarding deletion on[edit]


I do understand why page looked as candidate for deletion.

Thing is, I tried to write it as objectively as I could since this has happened again in the past.

Yes, I am affiliated with the company, but that's not a reason for the page to be deleted, if I am correct.

I would really appreciate if you would let me know what parts of this items need to change (or be removed) in order to have the article published.

Thank you.

ps: There are so many companies and services like ours, some are way younger and way "smaller" than ours that do have a wikipedia item.

Aw man. It would be nice if you added a link to the page as requested. Something like would have been helpful, especially as you see in the top of this page I have limited web access, so searching through thousands of deletions to find it is not easy. I did the search for you and found the article was deleted because it did not assertnotability. Specifically it did not meet the Golden Rule. What little "sources" it had were to YouTube and to the Google WebStore. Hardly independent and reliable sources. The article also was a sales pitch for phaistosnetworks. As for the other couple of issues, you mention other websites which are not relevant to the discussion. If you think other pages you refer to are also not notable, please nominate them for deletion, or ask in their talk page. Lastly you do have a conflict of interest. That was not the reason the page was deleted as already stated but it is a concern. Please read the Plain and Simple Conflict of Interest page to see the implications. -- Alexf(talk) 14:28, 11 April 2014 (UTC)

Canary Beck unblock[edit]

Any objections to unblocking Canary Beck, based on the explination and promise made in the unblock request there? Kuru (talk) 01:13, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

OK, based on what he says. Personal name, eh? As long as no spamming goes on. -- Alexf(talk) 01:30, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
As long as there's a Moxie Crimefighter Jillette, I suppose anything is possible. :) Will monitor. Kuru (talk) 02:00, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

Idin Samimi Mofakham[edit]

Hi! Thank you for dealing with the speedy deletion of Idin Samimi Mofakham as G11/G12. As the colour of the link will have told you, it's back with us. As far as I can recall it's closely similar to the previous version, and similarly copied/ close-paraphrased from [2]. Can I ask you to deal with it again (perhaps with some salt?), or should I tag it again and let things take their course? Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 16:13, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

Obvious copyvio. Promotional too. Deleted and salted for a few days. Let them write something usable if he is notable. -- Alexf(talk) 21:10, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
Thank you! I see you left a talk page warning also, so thanks for that too. Regards, Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 21:37, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

Martyn Andrews[edit]

Hello can you please undelete Martyn Andrews page

I can put more references and proof if you need. I had it on Wikipedia for years and I am a well known tv host and journalist. Was there for 4 years.

I am also keen for it not to look like promotion while at the same time showing all the work I've done like others in the same industry.

Best wishes and thank you for your time.

You would have to request that from the deleting admin Jimfbleak. Please note you have a serious conflict of interest here and autobiographies are strongly discouraged. Please remember to sign your pages with four tildes. -- Alexf(talk) 12:02, 22 April 2014 (UTC)

Grabyo page[edit]

I recently created the page Grabyo which you deleted before I had a chance to add references. I work across the media and broadcasting industry and have been following the company for some time. I thought a page on Wikipedia was warranted given the extensive coverage it has received from noteworthy sources such as The Financial Times, Daily Telegraph, TechCrunch, The Next Web etc. I would be grateful if you could verify this via a quick web search and permit me to create a fresh page with references, for other wikipedia users to contribute to.

Many thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Vcwatcher (talkcontribs) 11:15, 22 April 2014 (UTC)

The article had no references at all to assert notability. If you do not yet have enough information to pass the Golden Rule then you should work it off line or in a sandbox, not post it to mainspace where, as you saw, it cannot stay and will not last long. Before you do a lot of work on this, make sure you read, and understand, the notability requirements for web content. Please remember to sign your pages with four tildes. -- Alexf(talk) 12:02, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
