Speedy deletion nomination of John Thrasher (politician)[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on John Thrasher (politician) 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 a person or group of people, 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 see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for biographies.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you. BrianY (talk) 22:08, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

NowCommons: File:Castlereagh death.GIF[edit]

File:Castlereagh death.GIF is now available on Wikimedia Commons as Commons:File:Castlereagh death.gif. This is a repository of free media that can be used on all Wikimedia wikis. The image will be deleted from Wikipedia, but this doesn't mean it can't be used anymore. You can embed an image uploaded to Commons like you would an image uploaded to Wikipedia, in this case: [[File:Castlereagh death.gif]]. Note that this is an automated message to inform you about the move. This bot did not copy the image itself. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 01:23, 13 August 2009 (UTC)

Phoenix meetup[edit]

Hey there! Just wanted to direct your attention to the Phoenix meetup page, where we are planning a meet and greet for early December. It is a weeknight due to scheduling difficulties around the holidays. We will plan a weekend meetup early in 2010. --Spike Wilbury (talk) 17:51, 22 November 2009 (UTC)

Santa Claus[edit]

Sorry about the edit undo. Didn't know you were so, well known on Wikipedia. I just don't think that new info on Santa will appear during this season. Sincerely, Buggie111 (talk) 03:02, 25 December 2009 (UTC)

Please refrain from performing such an edit again. Our article must remain encyclopedic (and not pretend that Santa Claus is real), even on Christmas. Thank you. —Ebenezer Scrooge David Levy 10:34, 25 December 2009 (UTC)

Once the article is adequately referenced, please remove the {{unreferencedBLP}} tag. Here is the article:

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 04:47, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Fransisco Franco[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Fransisco Franco has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Actively detrimental redirect, since it accounts for a typographical error that would be spotted if redlinked. I'll take care of current uses.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

New Wales Coast Path WikiProject[edit]

I see you're a member of WikiProject Wales and have contributed to Welsh articles. There's a new project, Llwybrau Byw!|Living Paths! under development which you might be able to contribute to. Lonely Planet rated the coast of Wales "the best region on Earth" in 2012, yet there is a very low number of articles on the history and culture of places along the Coastal Path and the many and various activities and attractions. This promises to be an exciting project as it gathers momentum with many Users joining in. Let's make this WikiProject, like the path itself, the best on earth!
