My suggestion: start over
I'm with KC on this and this. This article is not going to make it in its present form. It lacks in-line citations. I would like to propose another tack... I think someone else already said this, but I can't find it... Start over. Seriously. Start with a bare, bare minimum article. The subject's name, a little bit about him, a little bit about what he has done, enough to satisfy WP:BIO. Do this with (good) in-line citations for absolutely everything. I think that this is the only way to go. -- Ben 19:43, 23 August 2007 (UTC)
- To respond to your request: after a quick look at the article, I agree with Ben's plan. Let's take this back to a WP:STUB and start from there. I'll try to take a deeper look soonish, but a bit busy right now. Darkspots 21:11, 24 August 2007 (UTC)
From this it seems like you have the picture. You want an article that is thoroughly sourced (this lends itself to a smaller article). You want an article that establishes the notability of the subject. -- Ben 22:02, 24 August 2007 (UTC)
Anthony Chidiac and some Trivial Stuff
Hey man, sorry, the "vote" was my bad. I clearly didn't look to deep into the refs and I am now convinced that it's notable. Thanks for alerting me, my "vote" (I use the word opinion instead sometimes) is changed to keep. But about your "just posting a stub"... don't give up and leave it as is, I don't want to sound optimistic or anything but I think any article can make it to at least Good Article status. I might help with the formattign every once in a while to get it to at least B-Class. Also, I didn't see all those "nasty things" written in the discussion but that's probably because I read some of it yesterday and I'm too lazy to read all of it today.
Anywho, my nick is taken from a character in Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and Life, the Universe and Everything. There's an article on this particular character actually. And, if you check out the article, you'll notice the character's name has a peculiar history as well.
I do live in Argentina, as you may have noticed from my fifth userbox. I'm sorry to dissapoint you, but there's not much flamenco around here. For the traditional stuff it's just tango or local folklore in the provinces, national rock mostly predominant during and after the dictatorship (but some great songs are still listened to) and some of the people my age enjoy cumbia (it's OK) otherwise known as cumbia villera (roughly translated to "shantytown cumbia"). Me myself, I enjoy music from outside Argentina in the most part, preferably jazz or rock. But, sorry, I don't know any flamenco artists (if you're interested in tango, however, I might be able to point you in the direction of a couple musicians). Anywho, if I ever stumble upon anything on Anthony Chidiac, I'll be sure to add it to the article. Thanks, --Slartibartfast1992 00:49, 27 October 2007 (UTC)
- Oh, I almost forgot: I don't really recommend telling people to change their "vote" like this (you know, on their talk pages). I mean, it's OK with me since I always understand a good argument, but some people might react unexpectedly. But you did ask a revision nicely, which is why I did it.
- Take a look at this discussion I participated in, on the other hand... (Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Jessica Smith (poet)). This user who now apparently left Wikipedia badgered nearly everybody into "changing their vote". And if you want to see how people reacted to this, check out his talk page.
- Anyway, just giving an example of when asking goes wrong. My point is just don't overdo it since there are some people that aren't so understanding as others. --Slartibartfast1992 00:58, 27 October 2007 (UTC)
- Oh, but people do enjoy life! Especially drinking and dancing! It basically what you described but with tango instead of flamenco, and lots of dancing to cumbia (the guys with culture go with tango; my friends, with cumbia). And you haven't lived until you've tasted an Argentine barbecue. --Slartibartfast1992 01:12, 27 October 2007 (UTC)
- And the best source of information about Argentina is an Argentine (lol). Sure, we brag about the food, wine, culture and tourism but we tell the truth about everything bad here. Take politicians, for example. Sure, they're bad everywhere, but we get the worst. Anywho, yell if you ever visit and I'll give you all the info you need. --Slartibartfast1992 01:15, 27 October 2007 (UTC)

An old mate of mine, Robert Moore, may be still floating around. He was the CEO of Hybrid Arts Inc and he invented the ADAP/ADAP II. Not sure if he is still around, but he's the guy I worked with back in the 80's to make digital editing fly. The guy I worked with at Pinncale has slipped my mind for now, but I'll scout through my 2001 e-mails and faxes and will let you know. He was the founder of Miro that was bought by Pinnacle. oh, the link to rob moore - http://www.woomza.com/inventor.htm --Achidiac 04:12, 29 October 2007 (UTC)
See User_talk:FT2 for answer!
Best and thanks :)
This is a courtesy note I have made a request for independent admins to review your recent edits the request is at WP:AN/I#User:T3Smile. You are free and welcome to participate in the discussion. Gnangarra 07:47, 5 November 2007 (UTC)
Glamorised Bullying, and he's bringing his mates. LOL TMT methinks. --T3Smile 08:08, 5 November 2007 (UTC)
Tracey, looks like they are ganging up on you. I do feel sorry for you, but you didn't listen to what the admins told you about inline citation and its at the expense of my name. I now know its not your fault but it seems you're being accused of something really untrue. Learn about inline citation ASAP please.--Achidiac 08:36, 5 November 2007 (UTC)
Hi Tracey, sorry I missed your call. Looks like some people have no life and you have made major news that disturbs some people. Please call the editor of The Age - Multimedia and tell your story, I have been in contact with him today and he's keen to run a story. I'll sms mobile # Wednesday.

Nominating articles for deletion is really easy... Let me summarize then tell you the shortcuts... You really need two things to nominate an article for deletion (three if you are kind). You need to put a notice on the article. This lets visitors or watchers of the article know that it's up for deletion. You need to put a notice on the current day's list of deletions. This lets everyone who watches AfD's know that that page is up for deletion. Whew! That's the long version! For the short version... check out this link. After you do the first step there... there will be some helpful links that will get you through the rest of it. Good luck. -- Ben 15:05, 5 November 2007 (UTC)

You don't need the account unblocked to attend Wikimedia meetups. There are no current scheduled Wikimedia meetups in Melbourne and there isn't likely to be another one until February. But still, you don't need the account unblocked to attend a meetup. You say that you are a contributor to non-Chidiac articles; can you please tell us which ones? These are your contributions to articles: . All I see is astroturfing articles, slanting them in some way to include mentions of Chidiac. If you really want to have this account unblocked, your best hope is to follow up this message and email your blocking administrator to confirm that you are not Anthony Chidiac and that you are not party to any outstanding legal and/or media threats and are no longer acting as a meat/sockpuppet.

Regarding Bio Piece and Difficulties
T3S, sorry to take so long to get back to you. I do not actively edit Wikipedia much rather using it typically for research to support my activities at Wikiversity. Perhaps a resolution to your problem would be to write your Bio stub at Wikiversity as a subpage of your personal page or in an applicable topic area if you wish collaborators. This could provide a stable workspace while you learn the intricacies of inline citation, formatting and all the other nonsense that some Wikipedia Admins and Editors militantly demand of new stubs as they seek prestige and status as the world's premier encyclopedia resource. Personally I think some basic version control would be much preferable means of impressing casual users but that debate has been ongoing with effective resolution just beyond reach for years. When your bio stub meets or exceeds prevailing Wikipedia community standards it can be transwiki'ed or copied with proper attribution to your Wikiversity source and proceed as typical Wikipedia bio of a notable person.
