Proposed deletion of Language Marketplace[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Language Marketplace has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

No indication of notability per WP:CORP.

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 {{proposed deletion/dated}} 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 {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. ... discospinster talk 16:27, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Language Marketplace[edit]

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

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

A tag has been placed on Language Marketplace requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about an organization or company, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. JoelWhy (talk) 16:29, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

Language Marketplace[edit]

I have moved this article to your userspace so that you can work on it. It's located at User:SteveBeattie/Language Marketplace. ... discospinster talk 21:13, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

Hi Steve. Here is the procedure from Help:How to move a page:
To move a page:
  • Click the "move" link at the top of the page you would like to move.
    • Note: sometimes you can see this button only if you put your mouse over the drop-down arrow to the right of the "Edit" and "View history" buttons
    • If there is no "move" link at the top of the page at all, the page is most likely protected from moving, and only administrators can move it. You can ask for the page to be moved at the move request page.
  • Choose the appropriate name space prefix from the drop-down box. For pages in "main" Wikipedia space (i.e. articles), choose "(Article)".
  • Enter the new name of the page under "To new title". Give a reason for the move.
  • If the page has a discussion page, you will be asked if you want to move that as well; usually, you will.
Moving the page will also create a redirect from the old title to the new title. If you are simply renaming the page, this ensures that links to the page continue to work.

Conflict of interest[edit]

Hello, SteveBeattie. We welcome your contributions to Wikipedia, but if you are affiliated with some of the people, places or things you have written about in the article Language Marketplace, you may need to consider our guidance on conflicts of interest.

All editors are required to comply with Wikipedia's neutral point of view content policy. People who are very close to a subject often have a distorted view of it, which may cause them to inadvertently edit in ways that make the article either too flattering or too disparaging. People with a close connection to a subject are not absolutely prohibited from editing about that subject, but they need to be especially careful about ensuring their edits are verified by reliable sources and writing with as little bias as possible.

If you are very close to a subject, here are some ways you can reduce the risk of problems:

  • Avoid or exercise great caution when editing or creating articles related to you, your organization, or its competitors, as well as projects and products they are involved with.
  • Be cautious about deletion discussions. Everyone is welcome to provide information about independent sources in deletion discussions, but avoid advocating for deletion of articles about your competitors.
  • Avoid linking to the Wikipedia article or website of your organization in other articles (see Wikipedia:Spam).
  • Exercise great caution so that you do not accidentally breach Wikipedia's content policies.

Please familiarize yourself with relevant content policies and guidelines, especially those pertaining to neutral point of view, verifiability of information, and autobiographies.

For information on how to contribute to Wikipedia when you have a conflict of interest, please see our frequently asked questions for organizations. Thank you. --Drm310 (talk) 19:33, 11 February 2013 (UTC)

Text[edit]

Please note that you should add messages to the bottom of a talk page, or it may be overlooked. I've posted the deleted text in your subpage, but I suggest that you get to work on it quickly, since I wouldn't blame any admin who deleted on sight. The registered trademark symbol is always a beacon saying "company spam", and your article is no exception. Very little about the company, lots of non-neutral spammy stuff about what you are trying to sell. How many employees? profits? turnover? Who are your main competitors? How many complaints do you get? has the company ever been criticised. You need to make it much more like an encyclopaedia article and less like a sales brochure, or it will be deleted again Jimfbleak - talk to me? 16:01, 15 April 2013 (UTC)
