Welcome![edit]

Hello, and Welcome to the Wikipedia, AuthorAuthor! Thanks for removing the broken link over at the Tony Serra biography article. Here are a few perfunctory tips to hasten your acculturation into the Wikipedia experience:

And some odds and ends: Cite your sources, Civility, Conflict resolution, How to edit a page, How to write a great article, Pages needing attention, Peer review, Policy Library, Verifiability, Village pump, and Wikiquette; also, you can sign your name on any page by typing four tildes: ~~~~. Best of luck, AuthorAuthor, and most importantly, have fun! Ombudsman (talk) 22:53, 19 November 2007 (UTC)


Nuvola apps personal.png You should wait for others to write an article about subjects in which you are personally involved. This applies to articles about you, your achievements, your band, your business, your publications, your website, your relatives, and any other possible conflict of interest.

Creating an article about yourself is strongly discouraged. If you create such an article, it might be listed on articles for deletion. Deletion is not certain, but many feel strongly that you should not start articles about yourself. This is because independent creation encourages independent validation of both significance and verifiability. All edits to articles must conform to Wikipedia:No original research, Wikipedia:Neutral point of view, and Wikipedia:Verifiability.

If you are not "notable" under Wikipedia guidelines, creating an article about yourself may violate the policy that Wikipedia is not a personal webspace provider and would thus qualify for speedy deletion. If your achievements, etc., are verifiable and genuinely notable, and thus suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia, someone else will probably create an article about you sooner or later. (See Wikipedia:Wikipedians with articles.) Thank you. TheMindsEye (talk) 19:01, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

Footnotes format[edit]

Hello AuthorAuthor. You are doing some wonderful work on Wikipedia! I do have one recommendation: check out the footnotes style guideline. The footnote formatting described on that page is very similar to what you are doing now but has a number of advantages. When you use <ref></ref> tags around your references (in conjunction with a <references/> tag at the bottom of the page) it gathers all the references in one section, superscripts the references numbers, and also helps readability in edit mode as the references get grayed out (if you are using a tool that adds syntax colors to text in edit mode). Thanks again for all the great writing and let me know if you have any questions. Noah 14:48, 28 January 2008 (UTC)

Duplicate images uploaded[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:FrankHawkins.jpg. A machine-controlled robot account noticed that you also uploaded the same image under the name Image:Image-FrankHawkins.jpg. The copy called Image:Image-FrankHawkins.jpg has been marked for speedy deletion since it is redundant. If this sounds okay to you, there is no need for you to take any action.

This is an automated message- you have not upset or annoyed anyone, and you do not need to respond. In the future, you may save yourself some confusion if you supply a meaningful file name and refer to 'my contributions' to remind yourself exactly which name you chose (file names are case sensitive, including the extension) so that you won't lose track of your uploads. For tips on good file naming, see Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions about this notice, or feel that the deletion is inappropriate, please contact User:Staecker, who operates the robot account. Staeckerbot (talk) 09:29, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

Footnotes format[edit]

Hi. At the risk of intruding on your day: did you by chance see the Footnotes comment I made above? It would be really helpful if you could use the reference/footnotes format when you add URLs in the middle of the text. All you need to do is put <ref> at the beginning of the URL and </ref> at the end of the URL (or in-line citation). The only other bit you would need to do is add the text <references/> in the References section if it doesn't already exist. Sorry if I'm coming across as pushy but it really helps the users of Wikipedia if the articles all have the suggested in-line citation format. Please leave a note on this page if you want any help with this formatting. Thanks for listening and thanks for all the great work. Noah 19:38, 24 February 2008 (UTC)

Hi, Noah. I'll read up on reference/footnotes formatting for the next time. Thanks for the suggestion! AuthorAuthor (talk) 22:17, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for checking it out. Let me know if you want any help. Cheers, Noah 07:17, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

Re: Russell Klika[edit]

Hello - thanks for the message. I nominated this article as part of a group of articles for deletion because they were all originally created for promotional purposes, by a single-purpose account, as a copy-and-paste from the exhibition's site. They all have or had the same language about this exhibition, and it was clear the intent was to advertise for the show, not to improve the encyclopedia.

In addition, although I appreciate the noble service of each photographer, I do not feel any of the articles meet the notability standards for people. Others may disagree, which is why we have discussions about deletion.

The number of sources or references isn't the measure of notability. Instead, I looked for sources about each photographer, and could find none other than photo credits, a few blogs (blogs are not verifiable sources) and information from previous exhibitions. He may be on the way to notability, but he's not there yet.

If you have more verifiable, reliable sources about Klika, you should add them and leave a comment at the deletion discussion noting it, so interested editors can take a second look and reconsider. At the very least, you should remove the names of his children and particularly the name of his former wife - Google never forgets and there are privacy concerns to consider.

Again, I'm thankful for his service and I like his work, but I do not feel he meets the notability standards. It's not personal, and if the consensus is to keep them, I'm okay with that too. If consensus is to delete (and I won't be the one to judge that), there's no rule against creating a new, fresh article sometime in the future if he does become notable. Thanks again for the message, and please let me know if you need more help or have questions. :-) - KrakatoaKatie 04:18, 9 May 2008 (UTC)

James Barrier[edit]

I have added another warning to SteveMiller4LV's talk page. If he/she simply ignores it and continues to add original research I will notify admins and a block will likely follow. Is there any notable cites at all for the theory she/she is advocating? I know nothing about the case. I'm just wondering if it's the usual ill-informed conspiracy nonsense or if there is actually anyone reputable putting it forward. --Escape Orbit (Talk) 09:43, 14 July 2008 (UTC)

  • I have warned SteveMiller4LV in no uncertain terms that he is to discuss his changes on the article’s talk page or I will block him and have watchlisted the article. —Travistalk 00:17, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Image:VictoriaPynchon.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Image:VictoriaPynchon.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section I8 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is available as a bit-for-bit identical copy on the Wikimedia Commons under the same name, or all references to the image on Wikipedia have been updated to point to the title used at Commons.

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 [[ Talk:Image:VictoriaPynchon.jpg|the talk page]] explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article 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 article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you. NonvocalScream (talk) 16:21, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

==The photo ImageLVictoriaPynchon.jpg has been tagged in speedy deletion in error. Permission has been given by the copyright holder to use the photo, and it has been placed in Wikipedia Commons. Please do not delete. That was all put in the information when the photo was added to the page, adding much to the article to include a photo.AuthorAuthor (talk) 23:11, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

Deletion of Victoria Pynchon, Jeffrey Steinberger and Charis Michelsen pages by User talk:Brandon[edit]

For Victoria Pynchon, I just noticed, when I pulled up each notation about the deletions, that you deleted the Victoria Pynchon page five minutes after you deleted the Jeffrey Steinberger page. I hope you’re not under the impression that these two pages, because they're about lawyers, are related in some way? They're random choices. I wrote the Pynchon page almost a year and a half ago (and it took a lot of work to do it, because there is a tremendous amount on the Internet about her; it was a matter of sorting through it all and finding reliable articles and citations). If I overdid it and included things I should not have -- and I apologize for that -- I can easily remove those things. I've edited attorney Tony Serra's page as well, and he's not connected to these attorneys either (they're all with different law firms and each practice in different specialties of law). . While Jeffrey Steinberger, from what I can tell by what’s out there about him -- including an overdone personal Web site -- appears to be egotistical, that doesn’t make him un-notable. I noticed him when I saw two of his interviews with MSNBC and Fox on YouTube. He's been out there as a talking head for a while now, plus he handles celebrity cases, which puts him in the limelight. I'll be sure not to include anything that's considered promotional on his page if I'm allowed to rework it and bring it up to Wiki encyclopedic standards.

By the same token, Charis Michelsen -- an actress since the early 1990s with several recent films, and a former model, plus she married into a famous two-generational filmmaking family -- is notable as well. I have found additional reliable sources to cite on her page and can delete anything you feel is promotional.

If you could please let me know, generally, what you’d like cleaned up, I will set about doing that. I enjoy writing. I don’t know if my notes are reaching you or not; I haven’t seen anything new posted from you. Because of all the citations, links and information on each page, starting from scratch and rebuilding each of the pages would be a huge amount of work (I didn't save what I'd written). Restoring the pages so I can rework them would save a tremendous amount of time. Thank you again for your consideration. It's much appreciated. I come in peace.

Response & appeal re: deletions[edit]

To: User talk:Brandon
On Feb. 5, you replied: Paid editing? Brandon (talk) 05:34, 5 February 2010 (UTC)
I’ve posted my appeal to you asking that you please restore the articles [Charis Michelsen], {Victoria Pynchon] and [Jeffrey Steinberger] that you deleted for “Unambiguous advertising or promotion” so that I can rewrite them with NPOV. All are notable.
I replied to your question, and I do it again here: No. My articles are not “paid editing.” I have been editing on Wikipedia off and on for a while now. I am not connected to any group or individuals that pay for edits. My understanding of Wikipedia has always been that encyclopedic editing is voluntary and an individual thing. I don’t know what else I can say to you. I'm fascinated with the legal system, criminology, entertainment and the arts, which is what I typically edit. I’m at a loss as to what to do next. I promise to improve these articles and get them up to Wikipedia standards. Since your deletions, I’ve been doing some small Wikipedia edits and have only posted one new article about a former national gossip columnist and magazine editor who is now doing time in a federal penitentiary.
Thank you for your careful consideration and once again for your time. I look forward to your reply.--AuthorAuthor (talk) 05:24, 14 February 2010 (UTC)

The User Brandon is notorious for deleting at his own unjustified whim (he is an expert in nothing who gets a petty ego thrill from his actions).He then disappears from Wikipedia to avoid the appeals and criticisms his very suspect decisions attract.He has been officially complained about on numerous occasions but has willfully ignored those complaints.You should request that this idiot be removed from Wikipedia permanently and his editorial decisions retracted.He is basically a cancer on Wikipedia and one of a small group of fools who have hijacked Wikipedia for their own ends.Appealing politely to such an ignorant fool merely is a waste of your valuable time and gives undue respect to someone who should be laughed at.

Once again lodge an official complaint against user Brandon and have your deletions re-instated.

You do not have to justify yourself or your contributions to such a laughable little clown.

I have improved considerably the User:AuthorAuthor/Victoria Pynchon article by rewriting and removing NPOV language. I am bringing it back by moving it to Victoria Pynchon. Thank you.--AuthorAuthor (talk) 15:46, 24 February 2010 (UTC)

Cordelia Mendoza[edit]

Thanks for your interest in the Ocean Beach article. I couldn't find the article in the Beacon that said Kehoe used to live there, but I'll take your word for it that it is there. That's interesting, I didn't know she had an OB connection.

However, I don't agree that Cordelia Mendoza is "notable" in the wikipedia sense. If Wikipedia listed every person who has ever won an award from their local business district, or worse yet every business that ever got a "reader's choice" award, we would be flooded. Wikipedia is an international encyclopedia and it has standards, including that any people listed have to be "notable". You can read about Wikipedia's standards here: WP:N and more specifically here WP:PEOPLE. I will leave her listing in the Ocean Beach article for now, but I am going to nominate for deletion the article you are writing about her. That means it will go to a general discussion where other Wikipedians will decide if the article should stay or go. That discussion will last for at least a week, after which an administrator will decide what the consensus was and will either "keep" or "delete" the article.

After I make the nomination I will give you the link to the discussion, where you are welcome to participate. --MelanieN (talk) 16:09, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

Here is the link: Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Cordelia Mendoza. You have worked hard on this article and it is in beautiful shape with many references, but I just don't think she qualifies as "notable" under Wikipedia standards. That is just my opinion; a consensus of Wikipedians will decide. --MelanieN (talk) 16:26, 18 June 2010 (UTC)
There are more references I can include to show notability in this article for this person. There are so many articles on Wikipedia where notable doesn't seem apply, so I frankly am taken aback a bit by this. I would like the opportunity to add to this article before you nominate it for deletion. I've worked very hard on it. Could you give me that opportunity? The article has already been given a stub. Thank you for your careful consideration. AuthorAuthor (talk) 17:41, 18 June 2010 (UTC)
Got your note-- Sorry this article got deleted. I find the growing deletionism here to be problematic. Unfortunately, I am in postproduction on a project and in the middle of a film festival, so I don't have time to assist you. Check out deletion review at WP:DRV to appeal the case. Jokestress (talk) 10:25, 12 July 2010 (UTC)
If the subject is mentioned in books or national media regarding a notable topic, be sure to include all those sources. Espacially important are obituaries, biographical profiles and extended interviews about subjects and their work. Good luck! Jokestress (talk) 17:54, 12 July 2010 (UTC)

Congratulations on your new article on Cordelia Mendoza. I think you have established her as notable. --MelanieN (talk) 15:59, 17 August 2010 (UTC)

Thanks so much. Really appreciate that. AuthorAuthor (talk) 00:19, 18 August 2010 (UTC)

Reggie Bush[edit]

Thank you for adding the NY Times source. However, please revert to the original grammar and editing from the present tense, or I will revert your edit. Also, there is no reason to say "question and jeopardy" ... it's redundant. Other minor concerns, but just giving you a heads-up since it was a good faith edit.

If the source at Josh Evans (film producer) is unreliable…[edit]

Do you agree that it should be removed from Charis Michelsen where it is used as well? —C.Fred (talk) 19:29, 26 February 2011 (UTC)

Yes, I agree it should be removed from there as well. Would you like to do it or should I?
I'd prefer you do it. I'm pretty sure that Kjdominic (talk · contribs) is the IP who has kept adding poorly-sourced info about the marriage, so if the edit history reflects that more than one editor disagrees with the additions, so much the better. Thank you! —C.Fred (talk) 19:34, 26 February 2011 (UTC)
I think so too. I'll go ahead and make the same change, same notation, to the Josh Evans article. Thank you too.

Stars Underground: Roxy Saint was the singer for Never On Sunday[edit]

Roxy Saint was a band member, just because you choose to erase her info off the Stars Underground page does not make what you have done truth. It is well documented that she sang for the band. Here is a flyer from 1993 http://a2.l3-images.myspacecdn.com/images01/123/45fa1a76480098f32a123c0eb0329b35/l.jpg The band has had more than one name, but the same three guys played the music, and that is just the way it is. Hollywoodbabble (talk) 20:07, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing it out. I'd read that she wasn't in the band, so I changed it. But I'm happy to undo my edits. Thanks for the note and, again, for pointing it out. AuthorAuthor (talk) 02:33, 11 March 2011 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:RussellKlika.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:RussellKlika.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Fut.Perf. 21:38, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:Mommy's Little Girl cover.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Mommy's Little Girl cover.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the file description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Eeekster (talk) 20:44, 9 May 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Image Shattered The True Story1.jpg[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Image Shattered The True Story1.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image is an unused redundant copy (all pixels the same or scaled down) of an image in the same file format, which is on Wikipedia (not on Commons), and all inward links have been updated.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, 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.

Hi, AuthorAuthor, welcome to the Article Rescue Squadron! We are a growing community of Wikipedia editors dedicated to identifying and rescuing articles and content that have been nominated for deletion. Every day hundreds of articles are deleted, many rightfully so. But many concern notable subjects and are poorly written, ergo fixable, and should not be deleted. We try to help these articles and content to quickly improve and address the concerns of why they are proposed for deletion. This covers a lot of ground and your help is appreciated!

If you have any questions, feel free to ask on the talk page, and we will be happy to help you.

Nomination of Victoria Pynchon for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Victoria Pynchon is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Victoria Pynchon until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion template from the top of the article. D O N D E groovily Talk to me 04:41, 25 June 2012 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Bright Lights, Dark Places (book)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Bright Lights, Dark Places (book) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Utterly non notable book from a vanity press, found in zero libraries according to worldcat. All refs are either not about the book or consist of PR.

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. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. DGG ( talk ) 22:52, 26 June 2012 (UTC)

Book articles[edit]

I am concerned that you are not showing adequate discrimination in what you work on. Some of the books and authors are clearly notable, some borderline. But some, like the one just above, are about as non-notable as a book can easily get--it is very very rare for a book by a vanity publisher to be considered notable. I notice that you have been called out as a paid editor--I do not know if it is true. But I am not at all opposed to paid editing if done properly, and, as you will see from my talk page, have been one of it's principal supporters. One of the things that I frequently say is that promotional editing is not limited to paid editors--someone interested in a particular subject and genre may do it just the same.

I am specifically concerned by the manner in which you have written some of the articles. They use review sources that are self-published or blogs, which do not show notability for books or anything else. They are often primarily or entirely based on promotional sources. The external sites listed include facebook and twitter. They use puffery, emphasising how important the book is supposed to be, according to its author or publisher. For topics whose notability is borderline, the use of sources such as this makes the entire article appear promotional, straining after anything at all in order to make an article.

A useful technique for books is to merge them into the author. If the information is already there for the author, a redirect will suffice. If the author is clearly notable, that protects against total deletion, though the content still has to be proportionate and non promotional. In the contrary direction, reverting such a redirect will almost always lead to an often successful AfD nomination.

For a paid editor or engaged in PR work, writing articles on marginal subjects is dangerous not just to the editor but to the entire work of those in this field at Wikipedia. To the extent articles from such sources are weak, the impression grows that such writers will inherently be incapable of consistently writing acceptable articles. I think the patience of people here at Wikipedia is growing very thin, and the only way to save the situation is to write unimpeachable articles. I know my own tolerance is much thinner, and I consider the situation so greatly worsening that rather than spending most of my time trying to rescue articles, I spend it on removing both new and previously existing promotionalism. DGG ( talk ) 01:42, 27 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Thank you for your note. If my tone is positive in articles, it is because I'm positive by nature and go more toward that tone of writing than negative. I now know I need to try and be neutral. I'm detail oriented, which is why I sometimes add too much detail. I will keep that in check. Just to let you know and set the record straight, I am not a paid editor, I don't work in PR, nor do I believe Wikipedians should be paid. Such articles could be perceived as biased, whether or not they are, and totally change how Wikipedia is viewed; I am not a supporter of PR overlapping into Wikipedia. I look at editing Wiikipedia as a hobby, which I enjoy. When I choose books to do articles on in the future, I'll pay closer attention to who they're published by, and I'll show more discrimination (thank you for pointing that out). I peruse Amazon a lot and stumble across books, plus I read reviews on news sites and they catch my interest. I do appreciate you taking the time to reach out. I will make a concerted effort to keep my writing strictly within the bounds of an encyclopedic entry. I won't be reverting your redirects. AuthorAuthor (talk) 02:33, 27 June 2012 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:FrankHawkins.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:FrankHawkins.jpg, which you've sourced to Raiders.com. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file agreed to license it under the given license.

If you created this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. You may wish to read the Wikipedia's image use policy.

Non-free rationale for File:RussellBackCover.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:RussellBackCover.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page.

Edit wars?[edit]

Say what? I don't know what you're talking about. Just now, all I did was execute a tremendously minor punctuation fix. If that somehow coincided or interfered with something u were trying to do, my apologies. (tick, tock.. minutes pass) Just took a look at your work so far. Looks pretty good. Thanks for taking the time. With all due respect, tho, regarding the three previous changes, those were all factual errors - Liz smith did not RE-view, she PRE-viewed; the LA times did not publish an article - or a 'piece,' but rather a sentence or two. And tho you've rewritten them, I notice u haven't lost the corrections. You're welcome; don't mention it. Regarding Greta .. uh oh, watch it; I think I'm going to get fluffy B4 your eyes; ah, but I digress.

Anyhoo, long story short, the article doesn't say anything about Sandra 'coaching' Greta (not that she DIDN"T; in fact she did, but that's not the point, nor is it even mentioned) the article - or rather, the one sentence that mentions them both - tells us that GRETA is following in Sandra's footsteps - and NOT as an actor, but as an acting coach, which is what she is, primarily - NOT an actor - which you certainly would've deduced from her relatively skimpy IMDb resume. Actually, rather than even bothering to redo that, you might want to just delete Greta altogether, cause she's definitely gonna have a place back in the discussion of the eighties and Sandra's innovations - vis-a-vis dream work and the many former Seacat students and proteges who do the work today. Including, of course, Greta.

UH oh. I think I spoke too soon. So let me get this straight - it's 'puffery' to let people know that she'd expanded operations to LA in the 80s or, for that matter, to include reference to Thomas's career-changing performance and Seacat's part in it? Wow. I have to get my head around that. In any case, if it's not in this paragraph, it HAS to go back in the 'others who have studied' 'graph

BTW, FACTUALLY: "By the 1980s, Seacat had opened her own studio" Whoops! That would be wrong. She had her own studio all along. What was new about the 80s was that she now had a studio on EACH COAST. So u don't want an editing war but u DO want to pare my puffy prose down to a lean, mean fighting machine. Hey, whatever. Give it your best shot. Just please, get the facts straight. OK?

OK, I'm gonna tear myself away from the computer. Please correct this stuff. I don't want to step on anyone's toes, and I sure as hell don't want to do stuff over again that I did right the first time. I'm looking forward to returning to this in a few hours time or maybe even tomorrow, and being pleasantly surprised... that is my hope; that is my dream... Till then DavidESpeed (talk) 02:25, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

aka NOT[edit]

As 4 what constitutes an aka, let Wiki be our guide.

As UC, many scenarios can come under this heading, but the misspelled name IS NOT ONE. Exactly what about this RU not understanding?

Sandra S pronounces her name atypically; hence the occasional misspellings. It means less than nothing that there r 'numerous refs.' I Google "Sondra Seacat" and come up w/ a thousand plus hits. Very impressive.

David Raksin (the late film composer, who wrote "Laura," from the Otto Preminger film of the same name) had an odd-looking name. Try Googling "David Raskin" Laura composer & u get almost 15,000 hits.

Katharine Hepburn spelled her name atypically. Try Googling it as Katherine & u get over a million hits.

Nonetheless, no one's aka-ing Raksin & Raskin, nor Katharine & Katherine. (Whoops; I spoke too soon. I'm getting a gazillion hits from exactly one site - some kind of porn site called 'Ultimate Babe," which in fact does do the K&K aka. Gee, I stand corrected. Perhaps we should go to the Hepburn & Raksin Wiki articles and 'correct' them; maybe a 'Barbara Sreisand" aka as well). Still, I'm thinking Wiki is aiming 4 something higher than Ultimate Babe-hood.

All that being said, including this info in some form (i.e. the fact that although spelled with an 'a,' it's pronounced as if 'o,' thus leading to a good number of misspellings) is a good and useful idea, simply to give a heads up to prospective researchers. Hopefully, we can arrive at an unobtrusive yet readily apparent way to get that idea across. DavidESpeed (talk) 16:49, 7 September 2012 (UTC)

I added the appropriate templates to your new article at Talk:Murder of a Mafia Daughter. I am now reviewing your new article on Ron Franscell and I see that there is no talk page there.

You have a good article, and I will promptly review it and remove the new article tag. --DThomsen8 (talk) 14:33, 18 September 2012 (UTC)

TAFI[edit]

Today's Article For Improvement star.svg

Hello,
In the past few days, Today's Articles for Improvement has gone through many changes.

  • We have modified the process for adding Nominations, which now uses a template/table format and requires only 3 supports for an article to be selected.
  • There is now a Holding Area, where articles are kept for discussion before being selected for a particular date.
  • The TAFI schedule now involves adding 10 articles weekly, chosen from a variety of topics.
  • We now have an Accomplishments page where we will be highlighting our older TAFI articles which have now become quality articles on the Wikipedia.

The Project is almost ready to hit the Main Page, where it will be occupying a section just below "Did you Know" section. Three article from the weekly batch of 7 will be displayed randomly at the main page, the format of which can be seen at the Main Page sandbox. There is also an ongoing discussion at the Main page talk over the final details before we can go forward with the Main Page.

If you have any ideas to discuss with everyone else, please visit the TAFI Talk Page and join in on the ongoing discussions there. You are also invited to add new nominations, and comment and suport on the current ones at the Nominations page. You can also help by helping in the discussions at the Holding Area.

Above all, please do not forget to improve our current Today's Articles for Improvement

Thank you and hoping to have some productive work from you at the Project,

the Jackie Devereaux wiki page deletion[edit]

I have personal knowlege that the Jackie Devereaux webpage is false and misleading. I am new as a user to Wikipedia and have not yet learned how to make these comments known properly. The Jackie Devereaux wiki page violates the provision for advertising as Devereaux is using it to falsify her experience. It also violates the Living Bio provisions. My email is pjsandsand08@yahoo.com if there are any questions. Personally, I am offended that wikipedia has left this up so long. The comments indicate that the editors are aware of the violations or at the least are concerned about the validity of the claims. It seems totally unfair that Wikipedia has allowed this to go on so long as it has. What must be done in order to make this correct and remove this violation? Are there instructions for me to follow to file a complaint somehow? Or is this message sufficient? I apologize if this seems offensive since I am not trying to be agreessive or antagonistic with anyone, just trying to make sense of the process. Thanks Benjamin's Gma (talk) 20:24, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for your vote for Kyle McMahon page. Those of us that came together to create it did really in depth coverage and worked with the editors in Wiki Live Chat Help Room to get it to where it is, which is presumably why it was approved by the two editors. We believe that 4 Oprah shows in the last 3 months, a golf channel documentary, a major record label deal, has trended on Twitter as one of the Top 10 things talked about on Twitter (for a couple hours during the last Oprah show), and 50,000 social media followers would make him notable.
