Football Fixtures[edit]

Dudesleeper has been deleting Football Fixtures lists, claiming these lists are copyrighted. The Guardian claims [1] this is not the case, and this information was provided on the talk page of the article in question before his edits. The article in question: Newcastle United F.C. season 2009–10. Dudesleeper has also been marking his major reversions as minor and calling people names in his edit summaries. Needless to say, these approaches are very frustrating. At first I responded in kind, but immediately afterwards I realized my mistake. I apologized on his talk page for letting things get out of hand, and recommended we discuss the situation openly to find out which position is correct. Hopefully he'll take me up on it. I know it's tempting for both of us to just be assholes on the Internet. I think we can do better. --Thomas Btalk 05:34, 17 September 2009 (UTC)


{{help}} People are still removing valuable information on upcoming fixtures from Newcastle_United_F.C._season_2009–10, claiming these are subject to copyright, but all evidence in the discussion page suggests they are not copyrightable. People just come along and remove this info, insisting the contrary position is wrong without argument or evidence. Restoring the info is tedious after other changes have been made to the site. I'm not sure how to change this trend, and my talk page discussion contributions have become less politic due to my frustration. I would appreciate someone else reviewing the situation and voicing their opinion as a neutral third party in the talk page. Also, please let me know what next steps I should consider to alter this trend. --Thomas Btalk 19:18, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

Hi there. If you have attempted to contact the person in question and you still can't resolve the dispute (which I see you have), then you should try some of the steps in the dispute resolution process. There are many options ranging from getting a third opinion, the content noticeboard, and, if things get really bad, the 3RR noticeboard and beyond. Hopefully it doesn't get that far, but these links should help you get started into resolving this process. Thanks for not starting an edit war on this content, and good luck with finding a resolution. --Shirik (Questions or Comments?) 19:30, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Mr. Jalopy[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Mr. Jalopy has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

A search for references failed to find significant coverage in reliable sources to comply with notability requirements. This included web searches for news coverage, books, and journals, which can be seen from the following links:
Mr. Jalopynews, books, scholar
Consequently, this article is about a subject that appears to lack sufficient notability.

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. Abductive (reasoning) 04:49, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Mister Jalopy[edit]

Icon delete.svg

A tag has been placed on Mister Jalopy 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 a person or group of people, 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, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for biographies. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles – see the Article Wizard.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag - if no such tag exists then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hangon tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you.
