Notability of Fabian Akerstrom[edit]

A tag has been placed on Fabian Akerstrom requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article appears to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content, 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 assert the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, 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 confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. David Eppstein (talk) 05:01, 19 November 2007 (UTC)

Fabian Akerstrom[edit]

Actually, I was quite aware of the tag, but there was no justification given for the hang on. If there were content available to establish notability, you could have added a quick note on the talk page saying "content to be added with the next X minutes." It is odd as well that an article was created in the mainspace without any sources, assertion of notability or the like. That is why it was deleted. If you wish to re-create the page with content establishing notability based on reliable sources, then it will not be deleted (at least not speedily). Thank you. Cheers, CP 06:21, 19 November 2007 (UTC)

No problem, hope there's no hard feelings. It's just difficult for an admin to tell the difference between legit and notable pages sometimes without the notability assertion (we get dozens every few minutes, it's ridiculous). Cheers, CP 06:37, 19 November 2007 (UTC)

Page protection[edit]

Hello Pchackola, please add new page protection request directly below the Current requests for protection headline, otherwise your request could likely be missed. Thanks --Oxymoron83 10:25, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

Viktor Hedman[edit]

In the future, you can just do a page move rather than recreating the article with the correct title. Saves you a little bit of time. Tijuana Brass (talk) 07:46, 31 December 2007 (UTC)

Victor Hedman[edit]

Nuvola apps important yellow.svg

Another editor has added the "{{prod}}" template to the article Victor Hedman, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but the editor doesn't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and has explained why in the article (see also Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not and Wikipedia:Notability). Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia or discuss the relevant issues at its talk page. If you remove the {{prod}} template, the article will not be deleted, but note that it may still be sent to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

AfD nomination of Victor Hedman[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

An editor has nominated Victor Hedman, 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/Victor Hedman 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. BJBot (talk) 21:14, 31 December 2007 (UTC)

Wikipedia: WikiProject Swimming[edit]

Hi there, Ive recently joined the WP:WikiProject Swimming team. Im committed to getting on top of the project. Since you have listed yourself as a participant i thought i'd let you know what i've done. Ive got a bot thats going through the relevant catagouries that apply to the project and tagging them with our banner. Ive done all the stub class articles and assessed them automaticlly, and im starting on the 3000 other articles that ive identified. So this will mean that we will have all the articles in the scope of the project together and we can start working on them. So if you have any spare time theres going to be thousands of articles that will need assessing. There are around 2000 articles Just in Stub-Class swimming articles, and most of these will need the importance assessed. I think it's important we get all this assessing done, so we can start working on the articles.

Don't fell pressured to start assessing articles, i just thought that since theres going to be so many articles, you should know that theres heaps of work that needs to be done, ill be trying my best once my exams are finished. Remember many hands make light work.

Your request for rollback[edit]

Wikipedia Rollback.png

After reviewing your request for rollback, I have enabled rollback on your account. Keep in mind these things when going to use rollback:

  • Getting rollback is no more momentous than installing Twinkle.
  • Rollback can be used to revert vandalism only, and not good faith edits.
  • Rollback may be removed at any time.

If you no longer want rollback, then contact me and I'll remove it. Also, for some information on how to use rollback, you can view this page. I'm sure you'll do great with rollback, just leave me a message if you run into troubles or have any questions about appropriate/inappropriate use of rollback. Happy editing! —αἰτίας discussion 15:46, 20 October 2008 (UTC)

Casualties of the Iraq War[edit]

Why have you reverted me, I don't understand I have not vandalised anything, I updated the numbers of casualties among Iraqi security forces based on the Wikipedia article List of Iraqi security forces fatality reports in Iraq and I provided a link to that article so people would see from where the numbers are coming from. And everything is well referenced in that article. There is no vandalism. This way has already been used in the main article of the Iraq war where the numbers of insurgents and security forces killed were entered in the infobox and links to Wikipedia articles that list those deaths had been provided as a source. Again, why have you reverted me? (talk) 13:11, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

And the same from me. Enjoy your day! – Quadell (talk) 15:09, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Ok, I appologize for the misunderstanding. I just thought that since the other Juventus players do not have it listed, it shouldn't be listed either. But I'm fine with it. Thanks for checking. --Dathangy (talk) 06:59, 6 December 2009 (UTC)

Nobel Prize[edit]

Hello! I am currently working on the "Swedish Project" and "Award and Prizes"'s article Nobel Prize. Since it is a top importance article and not even GA class I am trying to make it a GA article and perhaps further after that. However, I'm in a state now where I could use some help. I need a new pair (several pairs in fact) of eyes to look at the article and the talk page for improving prose, debation of different things and some sourcing. Do you got any possibility to help out?

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being minor in the usual way.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. With the script in place, you can continue with this functionality indefinitely (its use is governed by WP:MINOR). If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 18:45, 15 March 2011 (UTC)
