AfD nomination of Kevin Conner[edit]

An editor has nominated Kevin Conner, an article on which you have worked or that you created, for deletion. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not"). Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Kevin Conner and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~). You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate. Thank you. Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it.

thank you for your comments[edit]

Hi Nathan, thank you for your kindness, i was asked to check the Notability of this by a very nice gentleman named Xenocidic. the reason i came across the site in the first place was because i actually know one of the guys on it personally, i have also read many of the books from the gurus in the top 10 and a few of the others. there dosnt seem to be "judging" involved in the equation, see: http://leadershipgurus.net/leadership_award.html. also you may want to see the only 2 replies to the reliable sources noticeboard at WP:RS/N. one says no, the others says their boss was part of the survey. anyway, i read a lot of this kind of thing and i personally think its very useful to find all these people in the same place, and the fact still remains that these people did win the award which based on my knowledge, i have seen 6 of them in live presentations, i think they totally deserve it. ;) ‚ÄîPreceding unsigned comment added by Hotmarcie (talk ‚Ä¢ contribs) 13:00, 11 August 2008 (UTC)


Proposed deletion of The Cheating Scales of Bullamanka[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article The Cheating Scales of Bullamanka, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

Unsourced article on a single episode of an obscure and not particularly notable TV series


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.

Unreferenced BLPs[edit]

Information.svg Hello Natebailey! Thank you for your contributions. I am a bot alerting you that 1 of the articles that you created is tagged as an Unreferenced Biography of a Living Person. Please note that all biographies of living persons must be sourced. If you were to add reliable, secondary sources to this article, it would greatly help us with the current 1,968 article backlog. Once the article is adequately referenced, please remove the {{unreferencedBLP}} tag. Here is the article:

Re: New Article Posted With Different Content[edit]

Hi, Nate.

I just opened up a new article entry for Bethel Church (Redding, California). The previous article was marked for speedy deletion in December 2007.
I have included local news article references to show signifance and notability for the organization.


This page is still under construction, but I think it is more than a stub.


I would appreciate your help in becoming active as a Wikipedian. Should I put a "newpage" or "underconstruction" tag on this new page?

Also, please review the page Danny Silk. What are the protocols to follow to ask for time to expand references to show notability? How and when will the notability and reference tags be removed?

I would like to meet you on my next visit to the Melbourne area. Houseofisaac (talk) 05:42, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

Wikipedia is fairly evenly split between deletionists (who would like only the most notable of articles to be found here) and inclusionists (who would like everything of merit to be included). In general, it's easier to get an article deleted than it is to establish its notability (ie. the deletionists have an upper hand in the letter of the law of Wikipedia). Sometimes people will come to articles, cull a bunch of content and then say the article is too weak or thin to be substantial or notable. I suspect this is a variant on the deletionist theme (cull articles that aren't notable, cull content that isn't notable in articles).
How you respond to this environment depends on your level of energy and commitment. Most of the time, I am inclined to develop articles of questionable notablity in my user space. When I feel they have the level of substance that establishes notablity (in particular, they will pass an WP:AFD), I publish them as a main WP article. This means I don't have to race against the clock when someone calls an AfD to add the content required to substantiate it (I just don't have the time!). Once a topic has had a speedy deletion or deletion, it can face a higher standard of review for reestablishment - so it's better to get it right the first time (this is the upper hand I perceive deletionists to have).
This is all in reference to topics that are unlikely to ever catch the front page of the New York Times on a repeated basis. Anything in that category is likely to be uncontentiously notable, and both parties would support its documentation.
Feel free to contact me, I'm fairly Googlable (with my first name in full, rather than abbreviated)Natebailey (talk) 08:11, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

Added template for SuggestBot[edit]

Hi,

Thanks for being one of SuggestBot's users! I hope you have found the bot's suggestions useful.

We are in the process of switching from our previous list-based signup process to using templates and userboxes, and I have therefore added the appropriate template to your user talk page. You should receive the first set of suggestions within a day, and since we'll be automating SuggestBot you will from then on continue to receive them regularly at the desired frequency.

We now also have a userbox that you can use to let others know you're using SuggestBot, and if you don't want to clutter your user talk page the bot can post to a sub-page in your userspace. More information about the userbox and usage of the template is available on User:SuggestBot/Getting Recommendations Regularly.

If there are any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch with me on my user talk page. Thanks again, Nettrom (talk) 23:07, 13 February 2011 (UTC)
