Speedy deletion nomination of Interlibertarians[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 Interlibertarians 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 the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent 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. Eeekster (talk) 18:35, 25 August 2012 (UTC)

November 2012[edit]

Thank you for your contributions. Please remember to mark your edits, such as your recent edits to Libertarian Party (United States), as "minor" only if they truly are minor edits. In accordance with Help:Minor edit, a minor edit is one that the editor believes requires no review and could never be the subject of a dispute. Minor edits consist of things such as typographical corrections, formatting changes or rearrangement of text without modification of content. Additionally, the reversion of clear-cut vandalism and test edits may be labeled "minor". Thank you. Also, it looks like you are not using the "Preview" feature before saving your edits. Most of all, you are adding unsourced material to the article. S. Rich (talk) 01:35, 30 November 2012 (UTC)

Re:UK General Elections[edit]

It's been the consensus for a long time that we only include the main three parties. This is mostly because they are the only three parties capable of winning an actual majority in the Commons. Note that we do include the SDP-Liberal Alliance in the 1980s elections for this reason. Please discuss your changes on a talk page, because you may have a good case. In the meantime I'm reverting your edits to the last few election articles. -- Hazhk Talk to me 17:25, 23 January 2013 (UTC)

Results bars[edit]

I've removed these from many of the articles you've added them to as I think that they are both unnecessary and also just look dreadful. In many examples (e.g. here) it also creates a load of whitespace in the articles by forcing the table downwards. Please don't add them to any more articles. Thanks, Number 57 22:43, 19 November 2013 (UTC)

Puerto Rican elections[edit]

Hi Deturtlemon1. I've noticed that you are changing the percentages received by candidates in these elections. Unfortunately you appear to be doing it incorrectly - i.e. assuming the invalid votes count towards the 100%. The 100% is achieved by the total of valid votes received by the candidates, and this is how the results are presented by the sources used to reference the results. I've changed a couple back, but could you stop doing this as you go through? Thanks, Number 57 20:52, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

Also, could you please stop removing the invalid/blank votes from the results, and also changing them from what the source states? Thanks, Number 57 21:03, 23 March 2014 (UTC)
