Before leaving me a message, please keep these things in mind:

  • If you are here from to comment on something about User:TheMesquitoSock please put in the section title that it is about that, it is my alternate account that I use on public computers.
  • If I reverted one of your edits, and you think I have made a mistake or if you're confused why, ask away. Please assume good faith - I'm human too!
  • If you would just like to chat, this is not the place for that! Sorry, but you can always run over to my userpage and consult the links there - I'll probably have more leeway if you contact me there.
  • If you are going to vandalize my talk page, don't bother. Wikipedia has better things to do than to deal with people replacing entire pages with 50 pictures of a guy's butt. Go away!
  • If you are a talk page stalker, please feel free to jump out of the bushes to respond to someone. I do not carry tiger nets or rifles with me.
  • Please sign your posts by adding four tildes (~~~~) to the end of your post. If you don't, a bot should automatically sign it for you, but it's much better if you just signed your post.
  • Please use understandable spelling and grammar. If iz commz axcross gramer i du nut undrstaand, i vill rmov it.
  • Please click here to start a new conversation. Use a title that relates to the discussion. Please don't start a new discussion inside of an existing one that has nothing to do with what you're trying to say - it makes me disorganized.
  • If you're here to leave me WikiLove or a Barnstar, please leave it here on this talk page. I will move it into User:TheMesquito/WikiLove or User:TheMesquito/Barnstars myself, eventually.
  • lowercase sigmabot III archives this talk page. It will automatically archive discussions that have not received a reply for 10 days. Feel free to peruse the archives to take a look at past discussions.

This will remove any unarchived discussions from my talk page. If you want to revive the discussion, go to the archive, copy the TITLE of the discussion, go back to the main talk page, paste the title and add "RE:" before it, explain that you are reviving an old discussion from an archive, and then continue the conversation.

Hi TheMesquito,

A few months back you deleted a page I'd created on comedian and Seattle TV personality Nancy Guppy. At the time you wrote: "I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Nancy Guppy for deletion, because the article doesn't clearly say why the subject is important enough to be included in an encyclopedia."

I suppose I don't know what the criteria are for significance; she was on a wildly popular local television show in the 1980s and 90s (Almost Live!) and is currently the host of a television show on the Seattle Channel. I assumed her celebrity status was sufficient for an article, especially as many of her cast mates from Almost Live! have articles of their own, including Ross Shafer, John Keister, Pat Cashman, Tracey Conway, Joel McHale, Bob Nelson, Bill Nye, Steve Wilson, and Ed Wyatt. Though many of those writer/performers have gone on to more national fame, Nancy remains a very prominent media personality, comedian, and cultural critic in the Pacific Northwest. In the article, I had written that she was a cast memeber on that show and currently the host of a television show in Seattle. Is that insufficient for notoriety? Almost Live! was itself so significant, both locally and in the spawning of creative careers (Joel McHale and Bill Nye immediately come to mind) that I would have assumed her association with the show itself would have been sufficient for an article about her.

Please let me know your thoughts; thanks!
