Proposed deletion of Adam's Case Files Mixtape[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Adam's Case Files Mixtape, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. - Realkyhick (Talk to me) 05:37, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Adam's Case Files Mixtape[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

I have nominated Adam's Case Files Mixtape, an article you created, for deletion. I do not think that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Adam's Case Files Mixtape. Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time. - Realkyhick (Talk to me) 15:17, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

Since this article is now subject to a formal AfD discussion, it would be best if you made your comments there, as those comments would have more influence on the outcome of the discussion. Having said that, I will state again that mixtapes are generally considered not to be notable, even if they have a format similar to an album. Moreover, he is not signed by a major label or recognized indie label (hint: the label doesn't have its own Wikipedia page). Lastly, the mixtape itself is a free download, not distributed by traditional outlets. All of these means that this article fails the criteria set forth in this Wikipedia polict (click here). The only reason that the 88-Keys article itself is still here is because of his work on the production side of music and his involvement with notable artists, not for his work as a performer as of yet. But most of all, remember this: Wikipedia is not a place to promote anything at all, period. If you're writing this article to promote the mixtape, then it is not suitable for Wikipedia. - Realkyhick (Talk to me) 16:24, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

I do understand that this album is a free download, however it is an album that was produced by this artist hence it should be a part of his history, correct? In addition, I am not promoting this individuals album or any of his work for that matter. I was simply stating that I created this page because I like this artist and I didn't know why there was not an article about this person, which is why I created it in the first place. That being the purpose of wikipedia. Like I stated before, I do understand and respect the guidlines of wikipedia, however I don't understand the point of taking the time to create a page, then have it deleted, even though there has been no copyright infringement, no rules broken, I did not offend anyone, I am not promoting an album or this artist, and I have no affiliation with this artists label. In regards to the artists label, Decon Records, this is in fact a recognized record label that represents major artists like The Alchemist and Dilated Peoples, all of which have wikipedia articles. I just have not had the opportunity to create a page for the label. I will work on finding more articles.

It's not about copyright infringement or promotion or any of that. It's a simple matter of whether or not this mixtape — and that is still what it is, despite your effort to redefine it — meets Wikipedia's notability standards. In my opinion it does not, and that opinion is apparently shared by others, because as I have said before, mixtapes in general are not considered notable enough. Again, it's best to limit your discussion to the actual AfD page, and please sign in with your user name when you do. Contacting the label or artist will not help and may actually hurt your cause, as it will then border on conflict of interest violations. I'm afraid there's not much you can do about this mixtape article. Even the best-written article in the world won't survive if the subject doesn't meet notability standards. - Realkyhick (Talk to me) 10:26, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:88-Keys.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:88-Keys.jpg. The image has been identified as not specifying the copyright status of the image, which is required by Wikipedia's policy on images. If you don't indicate the copyright status of the image on the image's description page, using an appropriate copyright tag, it may be deleted some time in the next seven days. If you have uploaded other images, please verify that you have provided copyright information for them as well.

Your redirect has been reverted[edit]

It appears you have created a new article for Adam's Case Files Mixtape under a slightly different name, Adam's Case Files. In doing so you removed the AfD notice for the original article, which is a significant violation of Wikipedia policy. Moreover, it appears that you created the new file simply to avoid the deletion of the original information. This is seen as an act of bad faith, and may result in your being blocked from editing Wikipedia articles. The original article has been reverted so that the AfD discussion may continue in its proper fashion. Additionally, the new article will be included in the original AfD discussion, since the new article is nearly identical to the old one.

Please do not continue to attempt to evade Wikipedia policies in this manner. - Realkyhick (Talk to me) 09:14, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

I did my best to justify that this album is legit, I have researched, I have changed the page to reflect its notability. I have noticed that there are other "mixtape" albums WITH articles that for some reason have not been removed. What makes these notable? I only changed the page to remove the "Mixtape" from the heading and reflect that this is an actual album. You have no right to block my editing status, I did everything you asked and I have done nothing wrong. I mistakenly removed the AfD notice when i reverted the page and i apologize. i have also edited the article to defend why it is not a mixtape, has this been read and noted? Bmedick (talk) 14:52, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

As this page indicates, the fact that other similar articles exist is not a valid reason for keeping any particular article. It merely means that we haven't gotten around to tending to those articles yet. If you can point out some specific examples of mixtape articles, I will happily check them out, and nominate them for deletion if necessary.
As for having no right to block you — well actually, we do have a right to block you if you continue to disobey Wikipedia policies and guidelines. - Realkyhick (Talk to me) 15:11, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

Notability of Tha Bizness[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Tha Bizness requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article, which appears to be about a real person, organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content, 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 article (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. Dayewalker (talk) 18:49, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Convenience Valet®[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Convenience Valet®, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article seems to be blatant advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become an encyclopedia article. Please read the guidelines on spam as well as Wikipedia:FAQ/Business for more information.

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 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. KurtRaschke (talk) 03:28, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

November 2008[edit]

Information.svg If you have a close connection to some of the people, places or things you have written about in the article Convenience Valet, you may have a conflict of interest. In keeping with Wikipedia's neutral point of view policy, edits where there is a conflict of interest, or where such a conflict might reasonably be inferred from the tone of the edit and the proximity of the editor to the subject, are strongly discouraged. If you have a conflict of interest, you should avoid or exercise great caution when:

  1. editing or creating articles related to you, your organization, or its competitors, as well as projects and products they are involved with;
  2. participating in deletion discussions about articles related to your organization or its competitors;
  3. linking to the Wikipedia article or website of your organization in other articles (see Wikipedia:Spam); and,
  4. avoid breaching relevant policies and guidelines, especially those pertaining to neutral point of view, verifiability of information, and autobiographies.

For information on how to contribute to Wikipedia when you have conflict of interest, please see our frequently asked questions for businesses. For more details about what, exactly, constitutes a conflict of interest, please see our conflict of interest guidelines. Thank you. KurtRaschke (talk) 03:36, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

I strongly advise you to stop editing the Convenience Valet article. You have a clear conflict of interest, and the result has been a promotionally-worded article. I have not deleted it because it could be rewritten to a more neutral presentation, and the article makes an assertion of notability. Acroterion (talk) 03:59, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

License tagging for Image:02840.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:02840.jpg. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information; to add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia.

For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 10:01, 2 December 2008 (UTC)

Convenience Valet[edit]

You seem to be involved with this company in some capacity. While your enthusiasm is commendable, please stop re-adding the gallery of product pictures to the article. Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, not a promotional brochure. You may wish to review our guidelines for editors who may have a conflict of interest. TenOfAllTrades(talk) 06:30, 28 December 2008 (UTC)

While it may be entirely true that you "do not work for [the] company" ([1]), that doesn't really address your genuine conflict of interest. Can you genuinely, in good faith, claim that you or any close relative has no significant financial stake in the company? TenOfAllTrades(talk) 05:25, 29 December 2008 (UTC)
Perhaps I should phrase that differently. Your father is the COO, and your friend's father is the company's owner. It's perfectly understandable and natural to want to write about your dad's workplace, and to want to report on it. While that doesn't bar you from contributing to the article, it does generate a conflict of interest for you.
The original version of the article – the article which you created – appears to be a near-direct copy and paste from Convenience Valet's own web site: your first edit to the article, page it was taken from. (Incidentally, that's a big no-no, and the article probably should have been deleted at that point. As an administrator, the amount of similarity to the external site still makes me twitchy.) As it stands today, the article only has one source that isn't tied directly to the company, and makes many completely unsourced statements. There are many instances of Unnecessarily Capitalized Words, in the manner of Marketers who wish to draw attention to Important Concepts.
The article needs to be reviewed for neutrality (and cleaned up) by an uninvolved editor. Your heart's in the right place, but you're too close to the subject. TenOfAllTrades(talk) 14:44, 29 December 2008 (UTC)

Disputed non-free use rationale for File:Trakstarz logo.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Trakstarz logo.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the file description page and adding or clarifying the reason why the file qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your file is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you. Aspects (talk) 21:32, 18 September 2009 (UTC)

However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the file description page and adding or clarifying the reason why the file qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your file is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you. Aspects (talk) 21:33, 18 September 2009 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Bobby Valentino - The Rebirth.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Bobby Valentino - The Rebirth.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 orphaned, meaning that it is 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).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. 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 images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Skier Dude (talk 03:21, 25 August 2010 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:IMPACT album.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:IMPACT album.png. 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. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 13:20, 21 September 2012 (UTC)
