Marked for Deletion?
Why was this page marked for deletion? There appears to be no justification given in the edit summary. There are similar pages given for episodes of many other series. Why should this be any different? --Lachlan Hunt 12:23, 19 May 2007 (UTC)
I think this page is significant because it provides useful information about an episode of a series, including its writer, director, guest cast, release date, etc. along with a detailed synopsis of the episode. It provides equivalent information to that provided by pages for other TV series episodes and films. --Lachlan Hunt 12:46, 19 May 2007 (UTC)
- The issue here is likely that this is a "Webisode" as opposed to an episode of a TV show. Shows broadcast on major stations are often assumed to have some form of inherent notability, but the same does not hold for webcasts. Someguy1221 18:17, 19 May 2007 (UTC)
- How about the fact that this show is created by very notable people like Damian Kindler and Martin Wood, and has an ensemble cast including Amanda Tapping, David Hewlett, and others. These people are well known cast and crew from Stargate. This is not just some low budget, amateur series – it's a broadcast quality, professional series done by notable professionals. It is by choice that their primary distribution method is directly to customers via the internet, instead of more traditional means. They have stated that it is entirely possible that the show could be broadcast on TV and distributed on DVD, etc. in the future, but have no immediate plans to do so. I understand the policy is to avoid having articles about, for example, some insignificant series on YouTube created someone with a handycam, but that is certainly not what Sanctuary is.

References on Sanctuary
The image you uploaded was from the end (and not from the beginning intertitle), standard practice on Wikipedia is to use the title screen from the introduction titles. For example see Stargate SG-1 or Stargate Atlantis. "If it's regarding copyright, you should be aware that screenshots are permitted", Wikipedia's policies and guidelines prohibit high-resolution/high-quality non-free imagery (see WP:NFCC), so we must use web resolution images. "I've asked them to clarify the copyright license", unfortunately we can't use high-quality "with permission" images, this is because Wikipedia can be forked (and so people who fork Wikipedia will not have permission). Hope this clears it up. have a good afternoon, Matthew 15:59, 22 May 2007 (UTC)
- Yea, the Stargate ones are a bit big at present (I'll resize them sometime - if I remember, hehe) - that was just an example of the opening portion usage. If they'll release an image under a GFDL compatible license... well that would be marvelous, I certainly wouldn't complain! (responded at /copied to my talk as well) Matthew 17:28, 22 May 2007 (UTC)
