Copyright problems[edit]

You have been told repeatedly that you cannot violate copyright in this article, and yet you have just done it again. You cannot copy or closely paraphrase previously published sources, even if these exist only in archive as this one does. You have already been blocked for copyright problems five times in the past. I have removed the content. If you continue with this practice, it will be necessary to block your account for a longer time, perhaps indefinitely. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 18:09, 31 October 2010 (UTC)

How am I suppose to save my article and give all the info needed if no one lets me give it? I have reworded it as best I can, what more do I need to do?

In terms of adding information, you have to put it completely in your own words. You can't copy or closely follow what others have previously said. But adding information from the primary source is not what you need to do anyway. The article was not deleted for lack of information, but because there were no reliable sources to verify that it met notability. What you should do, if you can, is find proof that the organization is notable by locating sources that were not published by or affiliated with the Asia Pacific Football League. With enough of those, there's no way the article will be deleted for notability concerns, even if it is brief. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 18:14, 31 October 2010 (UTC)


I have proof, the website and an article from a Dallas newspaper. What more do you want? Do you want me to round up Preston Pearson? Because that's the only thing else I can do.

The question isn't whether it existed; the question is whether it was notable. Generally notability is determined through the following criteria:
"A company, corporation, organization, school, team, religion, group, product, or service is notable if it has been the subject of significant coverage in secondary sources. Such sources must be reliable, and independent of the subject. A single independent source is almost never sufficient for demonstrating the notability of an organization."
The website is not proof that it was notable, as it is a self-published source. (What's wanted here are secondary sources.) The Dallas newspaper aricle may help, but as the guideline says a single independent source usually will not do it. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 18:20, 31 October 2010 (UTC)
Did you receive any other materials on the Asia Pacific Football League? The article got deleted while you were awaiting receipt of those, but there may be additional items to recreate an article. Thanks. Mandsford 20:46, 11 November 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of 808 Lighting[edit]

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

A tag has been placed on 808 Lighting requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article, which appears to be about a real person, individual animal(s), an organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content, does not indicate how or why the subject of the article is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate 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 {{hang on}} at the top of the article, immediately below the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate), and providing your reasons for contesting on the article's talk page, 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. You may freely add information to the article that would confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

You may want to read the guidelines for specific types of articles: biographies, websites, bands, or companies. Paul McDonald (talk) 19:58, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Paul McDonald (talk) 05:57, 9 December 2010 (UTC)

Article Feedback Tool[edit]

Hi! I noticed that you've added one or more articles to the Article Feedback Tool pilot list. I think it's great that you are interested in being involved with the pilot but I'm going to have to ask you to stop. The articles you added the tool to are not good candidates for the "Additional Articles" list, so I'm going to remove them from the category. If you like, you can join in our discussion about it at mw:Article feedback/Public Policy Pilot/Additional Pages.

Thanks!--Jorm (WMF) (talk) 22:30, 9 December 2010 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:OnyxTavernLavenderGym.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:OnyxTavernLavenderGym.png. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file has agreed to release it under the given license.

If you are the copyright holder for this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. You may wish to read the Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 17:00, 31 October 2014 (UTC)

File source problem with File:Nopicture.png[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Nopicture.png. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Hawaiioldlogo.gif. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 21:28, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
