Etsuko Yakushimaru[edit]

Hi! It seems you recently created an unreferenced biography of a living person: Etsuko Yakushimaru. The community has decided that all new biographies of living persons must contain a reliable source that supports at least one statement made about the person in the article as per our verifiability policy. Please add references as soon as possible. Thanks! --LaraBot (talk) 00:10, 23 May 2010 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Etsuko Yakushimaru[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Etsuko Yakushimaru 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. NW (Talk) 00:20, 23 May 2010 (UTC)

I have added an external link (her official homepage) per bot comment. That, and the article is well linked, so her notability may be inferred by the references in the linked articles. Beyond external links, the content of the article itself also explains notability. Other actions can be taken to ensure regulation compliance, or it could be reasonably assumed that it will be possible in the future, or someone else can do it for me no reason to hold back. --Bxj (talk) 01:12, 23 May 2010 (UTC)

As your template add asks, I do not take offense. It is not a big deal for me to not have this article on Wikipedia, so I accept your proposal. {{db-self}} will be added. --Bxj (talk) 11:56, 26 May 2010 (UTC)
I have marked the article for deletion per your proposal. —Bxj (talk) 12:00, 26 May 2010 (UTC)
Although I decided to accept the proposed deletion, this does not necessarily mean the article fails notability policy. If someone besides myself would like to re-create the article, it may be possible. See also WP:AUTH as well as the links already added by boilerplate above. --Bxj (talk) 00:29, 3 June 2010 (UTC)

RfD nomination of SGES (disambiguation)[edit]

I have nominated SGES (disambiguation) (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) for discussion. Your opinions on the matter are welcome; please participate in the discussion by adding your comments at the discussion page. Thank you. SchuminWeb (Talk) 18:52, 26 May 2010 (UTC)

I was concerned if you noticed the preexisting comments in the article talk, however it looks like it may be preserved per WP:INTDABLINK even though it is still 3 vs 3. --Bxj (talk) 00:32, 3 June 2010 (UTC)

Tagging is no substitute for writing[edit]

If an article started badly, and you believe that there's better to be had, then, per — as you can see — Wikipedia advice of long standing, write a good stub. Zap the bad content and put in brilliant prose. If no-one has expanded or improved an article, and you don't either, then you yourself become part of the same problem that you are complaining of, and no actual help to the encyclopaedia. Going round the loop of proposed deletion, an administrator deleting the article, and then someone else more than likely creating yet another bad start to an article, so that we loop again in years to come, is a waste of time on everyone's part. Break the cycle and be a writer, not just a tagger. Remember this maxim: Writing the encyclopaedia is not Somebody Else's Problem. Uncle G (talk) 18:13, 10 July 2010 (UTC)

  • Actually, the article was proposed for deletion because I believed it would be in the best interest for Wikipedia to delete it. I wasn't demanding others to improve upon it with writing or else face deletion. I can understand getting the feeling of doubt about others' tagging activities, though. In this case your assumption is wrong. --Bxj (talk) 23:25, 10 July 2010 (UTC)
    • It's not an assumption. Your rationale for deletion explicitly said that the article was on a notable subject but was a bad start. As I said, the answer to that is to replace the bad start with a good start, by writing. Uncle G (talk) 04:20, 11 July 2010 (UTC)
      • Actually, if you re-read my comment, I said it may be notable. In other words, It may not be notable as well. I did not acknowledge or deny the notability because I didn't want to go into an in-depth analysis of notability: there was another concern with the article that I wanted to raise instead. I thought people would agree that a very poorly written article by a spammer, and little other contributions, would be a good prod candidate. I am sorry that you disagreed. I understand the spirit of encouraging others to improve Wikipedia, but on a day that I am not interacting with Wikipedia by adding more content, I don't feel like I am being "part of the problem." Just my perspective on volunteering work in general, perhaps. --Bxj (talk) 07:09, 17 July 2010 (UTC)

BLP Prod[edit]

BLP Prod is only for new articles, i.e. created after 18 March 2010. So Kumiko Noma is not eligible. Fences&Windows 21:13, 11 July 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up. --Bxj (talk) 13:59, 14 July 2010 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Soft salad[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Soft salad has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Non-notable snack product - one of millions on supermarket shelves

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.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{dated prod}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. --DAJF (talk) 12:13, 30 September 2010 (UTC)

Nomination of Soft salad for deletion[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A discussion has begun about whether the article Soft salad, which you created or to which you contributed, should be deleted. While contributions are welcome, an article may be deleted if it is inconsistent with Wikipedia policies and guidelines for inclusion, explained in the deletion policy.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Soft salad until a consensus is reached, and you are welcome to contribute to the discussion.

You may edit the article during the discussion, including to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion template from the top of the article. --DAJF (talk) 01:57, 1 October 2010 (UTC)

Your addition of See Also section to WebP[edit]

Hello, Bxj

Thanks for your contribution on WebP. However, I have contested your addition of a See Also section to WebP (your B part of BRD) by reverting it, (thus R part of BRD.) My rationale is that those links are redundant as they already appear in the Navboxes below; besides, why should some links be promoted above others?

If you disagree, I respect your right to discuss it (D part of BRD) in the article talk page.

Thanks, Fleet Command (talk) 05:41, 3 October 2010 (UTC)

Keep up the good work[edit]

Cousin marriage maps[edit]

Hey, I saw that you posted a message about the world map on the cousin marriage page. I replied but was hoping that you might be able to express an opinion on the United States map because this other guy says on thread Talk:Cousin_marriage#Issues that he wants to remove it. He says it's wrong and there are better maps. There is no consensus in sight and we really need a third opinion. Thanks. —贾宝玉 (usertalkcontribs) 17:07, 29 November 2010 (UTC)

American music[edit]

Hi, now that American music points to a disambig, please help clean up links that are now routed to the disambig per WP:FIXDABLINKS. Thanks, --JaGatalk 03:16, 15 December 2010 (UTC)

Sorry, forgot about that. Getting right to it. --Bxj (talk) 12:12, 16 December 2010 (UTC)
I've created a resolution of sorts, as explained in Talk:American music#Rationale. (Although technically WP:FIXDABLINKS refers to creation of dab pages and I didn't create a dab page this time.) American music links are left alone per WP:REDIRECT#NOTBROKEN. --Bxj (talk) 13:09, 16 December 2010 (UTC)
Looks great. Thanks! --JaGatalk 21:47, 16 December 2010 (UTC)

Tokyo Sky Tree in List of tallest freestanding structures in the world[edit]

Deep color[edit]

Hi. I found a credible book to support my point that deep color is not a proper name. Though it is often capitalized for emphasis, I find no suggest that it is a proper name or trademark. I also fixed the redirects to the section, since I'm not sure how to do the anchor thing. By the way, I'm thinking that this whole section on digital representations belongs somewhere else, like in color depth, rather than in RGB color model, which is supposed to be about the model, not the implementation. What do you think? Dicklyon (talk) 17:49, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the work. I've added {{Anchor}} for backwards compatibility purposes (in case there are articles that we are not aware of that links to the section directly by the old section title). --Bxj (talk) 23:39, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Open Compute Project[edit]

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

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

A tag has been placed on Open Compute Project 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.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button that looks like this: Speedy delete contest button.png which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate). 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. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 10:10, 22 April 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Jenny wa Gokigen Naname[edit]

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

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

A tag has been placed on Jenny wa Gokigen Naname requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A9 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a musical recording which does not indicate why its subject is important or significant, and where the artist's article has never existed, has been deleted or is eligible for deletion itself. 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 music.

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," which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate). 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.

The Seven Deadly Sins (ballet)[edit]

I was surprised to see the change of title. Can you tell me why this was done? Was there a special reason? I think few people think of this primarily a ballet. The singing is generally regarded as being more important. Also why did it need to be disambiguated, given that the title is unique? --Kleinzach 02:59, 13 June 2011 (UTC)

The primary topic is currently seven deadly sins. There are also a whole host of topics titled "The Seven Deadly Sins" at Seven_deadly_sins_(disambiguation), which made disambiguation seem more reasonable than not at the moment. We may try to limit ourselves to having one primary topic. --Bxj (talk) 10:45, 13 June 2011 (UTC)
Was the primary topic article just moved? Anyway I agree with the current primary topic arrangement. So that's not the problem. Thanks. --Kleinzach 06:42, 14 June 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of XQuery API for Java[edit]

The article XQuery API for Java has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

no evidence of notability

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.

Fairy Bridge (Isle of Skye)[edit]

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Fairy Bridge (Isle of Skye), and it appears to be a substantial copy of http://www.absoluteastronomy.com/topics/Fairy_Bridge.

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. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material. You may use such publications as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details. (If you own the copyright to the previously published content and wish to donate it, see Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials for the procedure.) CorenSearchBot (talk) 01:55, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

Wrong, linked site is copying Wikipedia content, not the other way around. Impressive bot, though. --Bxj (talk) 02:04, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

Soft deletion[edit]

I noticed the subpage in your userspace where you considered possible features to be added to MediaWiki.

"Soft deletion", as you call it, has been proposed more than once, and has consistently been rejected. This is because there are several reasons for deleting pages - a page could be pure Make Money Fast-type spam, for instance. Or it could be blatant defamation and harassment ("Wilbur Imaginaryname, born February 31 1982, lives at 473 Thisisnota Street, Hypotheticaltown, East Carolina, phone number 1-555-PERVERT, is a sex offender! Call him at home and make farm-animal noises!"). Or it could be copyrighted material which has been copy-pasted into Wikipedia by users who do not understand the relevant concepts.

Those are just three reasons; there are many more. At the very least, it would be irresponsible of us to continue making such material publicly available after it has been brought to our attention. Understand? DS (talk) 14:38, 23 January 2012 (UTC)
