Katie Holmes[edit]

Regarding your addition and the sources you provided: there is nothing in either of the sources you provided that gives the slightest hint of the original source of the content you are adding. One source is a direct copy/repeat of the other one - word for word. The sources credit the Wall Street Journal as saying she wanted $2 million for the Dark Knight role, but it gives no indication whatsoever where they pulled the $250,000 salary figured from. Further complicating this is the disclaimer page for the celebrity-gossip.net web site which says "Celebrity-Gossip.net publishes news, truth, rumors and speculation. This website is for entertainment purposes only. This website may contain errors or inaccuracies, however we do our best to verify all stories and submissions. We make no warranty as to the correctness or reliability of the content." That absolutely contradicts the requirements for sourcing as outlined at WP:RS. These are not reliable sources, they cannot be used. WP:BLP will not allow content from gossip sites about a living person, whether it be an alleged salary or anything else. Sorry, it is not good enough. Wildhartlivie (talk) 13:59, 21 July 2009 (UTC)

You may add it back if you think that that will be useful.

Fair use rationale for File:Bikini_Destinations.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Bikini_Destinations.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Do you want to opt out of receiving this notice? Melesse (talk) 12:06, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Crossfire (2007 novel)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Crossfire (2007 novel) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

non-notable per WP:BK

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{dated prod}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. -- Alan Liefting (talk) - 19:39, 20 October 2010 (UTC)
