CSD expand[edit]

Hi there! Regarding your quick response to the CSD proposal... since this has been live for scant hours it's still possible to reword some of them. Thus I have two questions, 1) I don't understand your remark about the Dell Vikings, since their article both asserts media attention and the release of a number of albums. And 2) you are absolutely right regarding the Modrons. Would you find it ok if I reworded it to specifically exclude races or types of creature? Yours, Radiant_>|< July 4, 2005 17:25 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Criteria for speedy deletion/Proposal/3[edit]

PBurka pointed out that an important omission from this proposal: a band could meet WP:MUSIC criterion #5 (sharing a member with a famous band) and still be speedily deletable by this criterion. I've added a sentence to the proposal to reflect this: it now reads An article about a musician or music group that does not assert having released at least one album, nor having had media coverage, nor having a member that is or was also part of a well-known music group. If the assertion is disputed or controversial, it should be taken to VFD instead. Please consider if you support this new wording, and change your vote accordingly. Yours, Radiant_>|< July 5, 2005 09:59 (UTC)

Regarding The Dell Vikings, I feel obliged to point out that the original content [1] didn't actually state anything about this band. This sounds to me like a prime example of a lacking article being created on a worthy subject. Please note that it is always possible to create an article (or stub) with actual content if an article with no content by the same name was speedily deleted. Yours, Radiant_>|< July 5, 2005 09:59 (UTC)

  • For the record :) The Vikings as it stands now contains references to media attention (e.g. several top hits). So does the article on Bach, since it mentions ten books written about him. Radiant_>|< July 5, 2005 10:22 (UTC)
    • For the record, I do believe a top hit is media coverage (since all top hits to my knowledge are played almost ad nauseam on TV and radio). I also believe that WP:MUSIC is at least somewhat redundant; in fact, most on VFD tend to only refer to item #3 (releasing an album). And I do believe that a book qualifies as medium (written medium), both per wikt:Media and the sentence "Physical duplication technologies such as printing, record pressing and film duplication allowed the duplication of books, newspapers and movies at low prices to huge audiences." in Media here.
    • However, that is my opinion and common sense may or may not agree with it. The aim of the proposal is to allow us to quickly get rid of articles on the average garage band (three guys who know each other from high school and that play guitar occasionally, and post a vanity article despite having no fame whatsoever). And this is the wording we've come up with after lengthy discussion. Personally I hope that this will accomplish what we seek, without deleting anything that is encyclopedic. It may well turn out that I am wrong, hence the vote. If you have suggestions as to a better proposal, I would be happy to hear them (for potential other proposals no earlier than september). yours, Radiant_>|< July 5, 2005 13:25 (UTC)

Missed the Memo[edit]

P, On September 6th the entry began "Ashida kim is the pseudnym of Radfore Davis..." I printed it out and showed it to the local cops who told me if any trouble happened at his house that the posters cold be held crimnially liable, just like the people who published the names of abortion clinic doctors who were later killed. BUT, that argument has been deleted. So, what you are acting on is mediocre and non-threatening. However, it can be changed any time by anybody to include the names of my friends again and might stay that way for days or weeks before I catch it. I ask you again, why is it so important that you keep me on your site? I am nothing, I have nothing. I eke out a meager existence selling pamphlet versions of the books that have made publishers rich and these holier-than-thou internet commandoes would take even that away from me. Just for meanness, brother. Because I'm not hurting anyone. I teach one simple self defense technique, throw sand in their eyes and run away. I call it Ninja invisibility because that is what it was called when it was taught to me. It's a simple magic trick known for centuries. Why does it offend you so much that you must continue to let these trolls abuse me?

2005 USa Race[edit]

Did you actually check on the left hand side that the position of the drivers are DNS. The Withdrew part is the reason why the pulled out of the race. See for yourself again Andreasu 12:57, 4 October 2005.

From All the Michelin-shod Formula One teams have come into the pitlane following the formation lap for the United States Grand Prix. Only the Ferrari, Jordan and Minardi teams took the start of the race and so are competing in the event. Andreasu 09:41, 5 October 2005.

150th race start for JV?[edit]

Jacques Villeneuve is to make is his 150th race start in the 2005 Japan race if he takes the race start, but now according to wikipedia Villeneuve did start the 2005 USA race so that makes Villeneuve has already started his 150th race in the last grand prix at the Brazilian Grand Prix which is incorrect. As Villeneuve did not take part in the race start for the 2005 USA race. Andreasu 04 October 2005, 13:40.

RE: Ray Pettibon image.[edit]

I couldn't think of any other way to categorize the image. When I Googled him all I found were his drawings and other works.


RE: You bring up a good quesiton. I know it is soley on that site, and I believe the Promotional tag would fit right. However, I could be wrong. If you feel a different tag is more suitable please tell me or feel free to add it yourself. Tenaciousd

Cleanup Barnstar[edit]

For massive quantities of capitalization fixes in bird articles. You deserve some appreciation. SchreiberBike talk 02:55, 18 July 2014 (UTC)


Hi. :) Had no idea the reference I prv. added failed any kind of reliability criterion. The two additional references I've just added to the Elisa Izquierdo article should not fail any criteria? Regards,--Kieronoldham (talk) 00:08, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

PS Hope I was not abrupt in reverting your edit: that info has been on the page for at least 15-18 months (from memory) until someone, rather than requesting a citation, chose to remove it as it was unreferenced.--Kieronoldham (talk) 00:10, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
