Notability of Kenneth C.M. Sills[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Kenneth C.M. Sills requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article appears to be about a real person, organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject 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 this is the first page that you have created, then you should read the guide to writing your first article.

If you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's 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 confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. FairmontMN (talk) 01:59, 10 May 2008 (UTC)

Notability of Brian Farnham[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Brian Farnham, by another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Brian Farnham seems to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not assert the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Brian Farnham, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Feel free to contact the bot operator if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot, bearing in mind that this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion; it does not perform any nominations or deletions itself.

Don't forget default sort[edit]

Hi Baseballtom- I ended up adding default sort to many articles you've created about Bowdoin College alumni. Keep up the good work, but please remember that when you create a new page and add categories to it, you should include a default sort right above the categories so that they end up in the correct place alphabetically on their respective category pages. You can use the template phrase I wrote in the first sentence, and just substitute that person's last name into the correct spot. -Jrcla2 (talk)(contribs) 23:10, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

Unreferenced BLPs[edit]

Information.svg Hello Baseballtom! Thank you for your contributions. I am a bot alerting you that 2 of the articles that you created are tagged as Unreferenced Biographies of Living Persons. The biographies of living persons policy requires that all personal or potentially controversial information be sourced. In addition, to ensure verifiability, all biographies should be based on reliable sources. If you were to bring these articles up to standards, it would greatly help us with the current 1,993 article backlog. Once the articles are adequately referenced, please remove the {{unreferencedBLP}} tag. Here is the list:

  1. Kelley Kerney - Find sources: "Kelley Kerney" – news · newspapers · books · scholar · JSTOR · free images
  2. Willis Barnstone - Find sources: "Willis Barnstone" – news · newspapers · books · scholar · JSTOR · free images

Speedy deletion nomination of Smathers & Branson[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Smathers & Branson 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 see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for organizations and companies. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

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.

Articles for deletion nomination of Smathers & Branson[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Proposed deletion of David F. Gordon[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article David F. Gordon has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Apparently not notable, lacks coverage in 3rd party sources.

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 {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Elsa & Fred (2005 film)[edit]

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a search with the contents of Elsa & Fred (2005 film), and it appears to be very similar to another Wikipedia page: Elsa & Fred. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case. If you are intentionally trying to rename an article, please see Help:Moving a page for instructions on how to do this without copying and pasting. If you are trying to move or copy content from one article to a different one, please see Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia and be sure you have acknowledged the duplication of material in an edit summary to preserve attribution history.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. CorenSearchBot (talk) 05:03, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
