Speedy deletion nomination of List of famous Spanish Legionnaries[edit]

A tag has been placed on List of famous Spanish Legionnaries, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing no content to the reader. Please note that external links, "See also" section, book reference, category tag, template tag, interwiki link, rephrasing of the title, or an attempt to contact the subject of the article don't count as content. Moreover, please add more verifiable sources, not only 3rd party sources. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content. You may wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. If you plan to expand the article, contest the deletion by clicking on the button that looks like this: Speedy delete contest button.svg which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate). Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the article's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. MelanieN (talk) 16:05, 23 June 2012 (UTC)

Hello, Tom991! Sorry for the "canned" nature of the above notice. What is actually going on is that I have merged the content of that brief "List" article into the article Spanish Legion, and I am now suggesting the the "List" article be deleted. If you don't agree, feel free to say so at the article or at my talk page. --MelanieN (talk) 16:05, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
Never mind; speedy deletion was declined "to preserve the article's history". --MelanieN (talk) 17:55, 23 June 2012 (UTC)

content requires sources[edit]

I keep deleting it because 1) you have not provided any reliably published sources that support the claim as you are required to do for content that has been challenged 2) even with sources, it is trivial and serving primarily as an advertisement. -- TRPoD aka The Red Pen of Doom 01:05, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

Please stop adding unsourced content. This contravenes Wikipedia's policy on verifiability. If you continue to do so, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. -- TRPoD aka The Red Pen of Doom 01:51, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

Stop icon You may be blocked from editing without further warning the next time you add unsourced material to Wikipedia.

Revert yourself or provide a source. WP:BURDEN is basic policy- the editor wishing to restore content MUST provide a reliably published sourceand your personal experience is not. -- TRPoD aka The Red Pen of Doom 01:59, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

I added a question on TRPoD talk page about original deletion. Additionally, if I come up with sources, I want to counter that the topic is not trivial and not an advertisement - the company is a historically important part of town, and the bushes are a local landmark (citation needed). Perhaps the section needs lengthening, but the topic itself isn't trivial. goodeye (talk) 15:04, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
I didn't mean to scatter my questions, so I moved them over to the article talk page at Talk:Wilbraham,_Massachusetts. goodeye (talk) 15:57, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
