Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Bear Rinehart has been proposed for deletion because, under Wikipedia policy, all newly created biographies of living persons must have at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within ten days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. Gaijin42 (talk) 02:01, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

re: disambiguation[edit]

Thanks for the headsup, I had meant to go back and review linking in the new articles but would have missed the 3rd. --ProfPolySci45 (talk) 00:15, 10 February 2012 (UTC)

Whitney[edit]

There are many sources stating that Whitney Houston has died. Instead of blanking out an entire section of a page, next time please open a discussion.--31.193.133.169 (talk) 01:49, 12 February 2012 (UTC)

i didn't blank out an entire section. see the history. I merely added a disclaimer stating that facts are still changing. the issue is IN FLUX.

Gangs[edit]

I think my expertise comes form being around and exposed to gangs since I was about 12 years old, my degree in criminal justice and my affiliation with a variety of Hispanic gangs over the years. Let us not forget that I have lived in various *hoods* pretty much my whole life in Washington, Oregon, California, Arizona and Mexico (the country). I have read a great many textbooks and academic articles relating to various Hispanic gangs. So, not only do I have academic qualifications relating to gangs and gang subcultures, I have 24 years of life experience as well. I have my own home library composed almost entirely of criminal justice and gang related books. How much expertise do you have with Hispanic gangs again? How much work or interaction with this subculture have you had in your life? Just curious MzNobody (talk) 22:18, 12 February 2012 (UTC)


I don't mean to belittle your experiences, but "personal experience" without verification or cites is not what we are looking for on wikipedia. Best- --ProfPolySci45 (talk) 06:30, 13 February 2012 (UTC)

I know what we are looking for on Wikipedia so no need to try and school me on it. I have plenty of academic experience in regards to gangs as well...how much do you have again? I am just as much a part of this community as you are and I am not going anywhere. MzNobody (talk) 10:36, 13 February 2012 (UTC)

Oh and if you vandalize any pages that I monitor, I will revert them as well.MzNobody (talk) 10:42, 13 February 2012 (UTC)

Thats ok; I think we're just looking for information that can be linked to verifiable sources. All the best to you in your editing --ProfPolySci45 (talk) 23:13, 13 February 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited African Hebrew Israelites of Jerusalem, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Genesis (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Speedy deletion declined: James Lushington[edit]

Hello ProfPolySci45. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of James Lushington, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: Any member of parliament is notable - se WP:POLITICIAN. Thank you. JohnCD (talk) 08:11, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

Sorry, I read it, but that was some time ago. There are a few other articles proposed for deletion that were "parliment members". Many are single sentence stubs. Should they be tagged with another deletion criteria ?--ProfPolySci45 (talk) 08:12, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

There are many articles on Wikipedia that are very short stubs. True, they may be of limited interest, but it doesn't mean they should be deleted. This article makes a clear, unambiguous claim to notability. Sionk (talk) 12:41, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Lancelot Oliphant[edit]

Hello ProfPolySci45. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Lancelot Oliphant, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: The article makes a credible assertion of importance or significance, sufficient to pass A7. Thank you. JohnCD (talk) 08:16, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

A7 speedies[edit]

Thanks for kitten. There is good advice for speedy taggers at WP:A7M, and WP:10CSD from the same experienced admin is also worth reading. Generally, that an article is very brief and possibly unsourced is not necessarily a reason for deletion - the question to ask is, is there the seed of a possible article here? Regards, JohnCD (talk) 08:23, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

much appreciated. --ProfPolySci45 (talk) 08:26, 22 February 2012 (UTC)
The featured article Buckingham Palace started, and spent several months, in this state. That is not a fair example, because that was in the very early days, but it illustrates my point. Regards, JohnCD (talk) 09:42, 22 February 2012 (UTC)
that is quite an abysmal start! I will go on with tagging for expansion and notifying authors, less speedy deletion; Thanks for the example. --ProfPolySci45 (talk) 00:30, 23 February 2012 (UTC)
