Speedy deletion nomination of Home Brew Crew[edit]

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

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

A tag has been placed on Home Brew Crew requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article, which appears to be about a real person, individual animal(s), an organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content, does not indicate how or why the subject of the article is important or significant: that is, why an article about it should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you can assert the importance of the subject, Speedy delete contest button.png. Clicking that button 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 article's talk page directly to give your reasons, 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. You may freely add information to the article that would confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

See the guidelines for specific types of articles: biographies, websites, bands, or companies. SpitfireTally-ho! 22:42, 11 October 2011 (UTC)

December 2012[edit]

Hello, I'm Mediran. I noticed that you recently removed some content from Minister of Housing (New Zealand) without explaining why. In the future, it would be helpful to others if you described your changes to Wikipedia with an edit summary. If this was a mistake, don't worry, the removed content has been restored. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks, Mediran talk to me! 09:14, 4 December 2012 (UTC)

You have a new message![edit]

Speedy deletion nomination of Unity Books[edit]

Hello Ballofstring,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Unity Books for deletion, because it seems to be promotional, rather than an encyclopedia article.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. Alpedio (talk) 23:14, 28 January 2014 (UTC)

May 2014[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to John Banks (New Zealand politician) may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "()"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:
  • moved back to national politics by joining the [[ACT New Zealand]] Party. He stood in the [[Epsom (New Zealand electorate| Epsom electorate]] and was elected as the sole MP for the party in 2011.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, BracketBot (talk) 03:57, 2 May 2014 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of 2014 Canon Media Awards[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article 2014 Canon Media Awards has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Not notable awards. No evidence of awards, charting or in depth coverage in independent reliable sources.

While all constructive 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.

Orphaned non-free image File:Internet Party NZ logo.jpg[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:Internet Party NZ logo.jpg. 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) 14:56, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

Nicky Hager[edit]

Good to se that you found the ISBN for Hagers new book. I had trouble trying to find it. Can you help keep an eye on the article? Some of the edits by User: are disruptive. -- Alan Liefting (talk - contribs) 21:51, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

I got it from the publishers website :) Yeah I'll keep an eye on it. It seems strange that they seem to know quite a bit about wikipedia policy but don't have an account? Maybe they're trying to cover their tracks for whatever reason... --Ballofstring (talk) 21:57, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
Ah, the published must have now updated their website. Yes, I noted the familiarity with policy as well. -- Alan Liefting (talk - contribs) 22:01, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
Do you know if this anonymous editor qualify the page for semi-protection - or does it need be disruptively edited by more than one person? -- Ballofstring (talk) 22:37, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
Dunno. I suspect a request may be turned down. I might try though. -- Alan Liefting (talk - contribs) 23:13, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
Stuartyeates has already filed a request :) -- Ballofstring (talk) 23:16, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

Tertiary education in New Zealand[edit]

Hi Ballofstring - the article looks good, but needs more references and probably a section outlining the historic background at the start would be good. Cheers. NealeFamily (talk) 23:49, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi! Thanks for having a look at it. Yeah I'm going to keep working on it - I thought I would just plonk a whole lot of material from elsewhere and then just refine it over time :) – Ballofstring (talk) 23:53, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
