Speedy deletion of Walker's Run[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Walker's Run 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 a band, 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, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for musical topics.

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 (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 would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. tgies (talk) 13:25, 13 February 2008 (UTC)


Image copyright problem with Image:Nothin Fancy.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thank you for uploading Image:Nothin Fancy.jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the image. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page. STBotI (talk) 13:42, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

Categories[edit]

I have removed Nothin' Fancy from the category American Musical groups. This is a parent category and is not meant to be used to categorise band articles. Only specific categories (ie, American bluegrass musical groups) should be used for this purpose. Please don't add the category back, the remaining category is sufficient.

AfD nomination of Adopted Christmas songs[edit]

musical articles[edit]

When creating articles on musical groups, please dont put them in categories like "musicians" or "american people"; these are for INDIVIDUALS. not groups. Ironholds (talk) 22:02, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

Also...[edit]

could you not include things like {{Americanrootsmusic}}. such tables are only useful if said article is IN it. Ironholds (talk) 22:10, 29 April 2008

ABOUT JIMMY HOFFA

The information gathered by Charles Brandt is very relevent to the Jimmy Hoffa page.

All of the information was cited. The deletion of that information drastically waters down the article and the main reason folks look up Jimmy Hoffa to begin with. The investigations into his disappearance are relevent to wikipedia. Spectre7277

AfD nomination of List of best-charting U.S. music artists[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

An article that you have been involved in editing, List of best-charting U.S. music artists, has been listed for deletion. If you are interested in the deletion discussion, please participate by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of best-charting U.S. music artists. Thank you.
Please contact me if you're unsure why you received this message.

I also nominated List of best-charting modern U.S. music artists. It's obvious a lot of research went into compiling this information, and it's very impressive, but it seems to me a bit too WP:IINFO, so I've requested the AFD. Thanks. Wolfer68 (talk) 00:08, 24 June 2009 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Christmas songs introduced in theater, television, and film[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Christmas songs introduced in theater, television, and film has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

arbitrary aggregation of disparate information

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.

Speedy deletion nomination of Our Community Place[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Our Community Place requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a clear copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words.

If the external website belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

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.

Category:Military brats[edit]

I have removed your CfR tag from Category:Military brats. I did this because you didn't make a nomination for it at Wikipedia:Categories for discussion/Log/2010 May 21, and gave no indication why the category should be renamed. If you still think it should be deleted, renamed or merged, feel free to retag it and add a nomination at Wikipedia:Categories for discussion/Log/2014 August 21. עוד מישהו Od Mishehu 07:24, 17 June 2010 (UTC)

A topic of interest to you is covered by discretionary sanctions under an Arbcom case[edit]

The Arbitration Committee has permitted administrators to impose, at their own discretion, sanctions on any editor working on pages broadly related to Shakespeare authorship question if the editor repeatedly or seriously fails to adhere to the purpose of Wikipedia, any expected standards of behavior, or any normal editorial process. If you engage in further inappropriate behavior in this area, you may be placed under sanctions including blocks, a revert limitation or an article ban.

Old Crow Medicine Show[edit]

I noticed that you insist on incorrectly referring to Old Crow Medicine Show as an "Old time string band". This genre description is completely wrong. An "old time" band refers to a band that continues a passed-down music tradition, such as The Carter Family ,The Pilot Mountain Bobcats, Albert Hash, or The Whitetop Mountain Band. Just because the song Wagon Wheel includes the lyrics "born to be a fiddler in an old-time string band" DOES NOT mean that Old Crow is an old-time string band. While they might use the same music instruments as on old time band, they do not continue the music of a passed-town tradition. I think that it would be more accurate to refer to them as an Americana or folk band. But anyone who knows anything about old-time music would surely disagree with your insistance upon calling Old Crow an "old time string band". — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.57.64.3 (talk) 05:31, 22 April 2012 (UTC)

Change of categories on William F. Friedman[edit]

I reverted your change from Category:Shakespeare authorship question to Category:Shakespeare authorship theorists because Friedman was not, in fact, a theorist, he was an empiricist who debunked the theories of other people.

I, too, am reverting inappropriate categories. Please read Wikipedia policies pertaining to fringe theories, especially WP:ONEWAY. Tom Reedy (talk) 00:38, 10 January 2013 (UTC)
Friedman was very involved with debunking various Shakespeare authorship theories, so the category you removed is quite appropriate. I have restored it, please do not remove it again without first discussing it on the talk page. Beyond My Ken (talk) 01:30, 10 January 2013 (UTC)

Second warning--please read[edit]

The Arbitration Committee has permitted administrators to impose, at their own discretion, sanctions on any editor working on pages broadly related to Shakespeare authorship question if the editor repeatedly or seriously fails to adhere to the purpose of Wikipedia, any expected standards of behavior, or any normal editorial process. If you engage in further inappropriate behavior in this area, such as the additions you have been making to several articles in violation of WP:ONEWAY, you may be placed under sanctions including blocks, a revert limitation or an article ban. The committee's full decision can be read at Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case/Shakespeare authorship question#Final decision. Tom Reedy (talk) 22:49, 10 January 2013 (UTC)

An exciting month of wiki events![edit]

Hello there,

I am pleased to say that April will be a very exciting month for Wikipedia in Washington, DC. We have a lot of different events coming up, so you will have a lot to choose from.

First, a reminder that our second annual Women in the Arts Edit-a-Thon will take place on Sunday, March 30 at the National Museum of Women in the Arts.

Coming up in April, we have our first-ever Open Government WikiHack with the Sunlight Foundation on April 5–6! We are working together to use open government data to improve the Wikimedia projects, and we would love your help. All are welcome, regardless of coding or editing experience. We will also be having a happy hour the day before, with refreshments courtesy of the Sunlight Foundation.

On Friday, April 11 we are having our first edit-a-thon ever with the Library of Congress. The Africa Collection Edit-a-Thon will focus on the Library's African and Middle East Reading Room. It'll be early in the morning, but it's especially worth it if you're interested in improving Wikipedia's coverage of African topics.

The following day, we are having our second annual Wiki Loves Capitol Hill training. We will discuss policy issues relevant to Wikimedia and plan for our day of outreach to Congressional staffers that will take place during the following week.

There are other meetups in the works, so be sure to check our meetup page with the latest. I hope to see you at some of these events!

All the best,
James Hare

Wikimania 2012 portrait 102 by ragesoss, 2012-07-13.JPG
