Proposed deletion of Sanam Singh

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Sanam Singh has been proposed for deletion because under Wikipedia policy, all biographies of living persons created after March 18, 2010, must have at least one source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't take offense. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Wikipedia:Referencing for beginners or ask at Wikipedia:Help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within ten days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. The-Pope (talk) 16:25, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

Claiming to be an administrator

Not sure if it was your intention, but you had a userbox and topicon on your userpage that indicated that you were an administrator. I have since removed them, since they should only be used on user pages of administrators. Netalarmtalk 06:56, 14 December 2010 (UTC)

December 2010

Please refrain from making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia, as you did at Danny Mountain. Your edits appear to constitute vandalism and have been reverted or removed. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. Thank you. Darrah Ford should not be used as a source on wikipedia. The lingerie blog should not be used either. Morbidthoughts (talk) 21:37, 18 December 2010 (UTC)

Please do not add unreferenced or poorly referenced information, especially if controversial, to articles or any other page on Wikipedia about living persons, as you did to Danny Mountain. Thank you. Morbidthoughts (talk) 20:27, 19 December 2010 (UTC)

Please don't put in the name and birthdate of children of Mountain and Angelina per WP:BLPNAME. Have respect for the privacy of the children. Knowing their names and birthdate is not crucial for a reader's complete understanding of either pornographic actors. Morbidthoughts (talk) 16:23, 3 January 2011 (UTC)

Re: Why you declared "deletable caption/file" ?

I nominated File:Loksabha.jpg for deletion because, as the deletion tag says, this image may fail Wikipedia's first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a free image might reasonably be found or created that adequately provides the same information. And no, it is not necessary to discuss adding deletion tags to images before doing so. --Geniac (talk) 21:38, 24 December 2010 (UTC)

Nice job,

Nice job, compiling the List of members of the 14th Lok sabha of India. I see the site also has information on party and constituency and date of birth. This information could well be used to provide a stub article on each on each of the mambers; I can even think of semi-automated ways to do it. Any plans? DGG ( talk ) 06:49, 28 December 2010 (UTC)

I must admit I was advising you to do something I have not done here myself, though I've done similar elsewhere. I know of several methods. The most sophisticated is to use a Bot It could also be done using a web authoring program and a database, or a mail-merge function in a word processor. But I try to do everything possible in a spreadsheet, & I'd do this using its text functions to build a html or a Wikipedia table from the data. (See WP:TABLE). The easiest way to do the final step is this converter. For the data source, convert a page such as [1] into its printable version. DGG ( talk ) 05:32, 30 December 2010 (UTC)

Award tables

Tables are only used when there is a large amount of data to be listed, not when there's only one item (like here, here and here). That should be listed in prose. Also there shouldn't be a rowspan when there's only one item. Thanks. —Mike Allen 17:53, 8 January 2011 (UTC)

{{Prose}} and {{Citation needed}}
Prose is always preferable to lists and tables, especially so if you only have a few items. I think of tables as a step down from a References list, most useful for large amounts of data, especially where you would want to sort and compare against various factors.
Table or not please make sure to include a citation for the awards. -- Horkana (talk) 21:36, 8 January 2011 (UTC)

Bill, just another reminder that personal information like relationships or marriages should be cited to reliable sources beyond IMDB or myspace. Morbidthoughts (talk) 20:05, 11 January 2011 (UTC)

For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material.
