Isabelle Leymarie biography[edit]

Hi, you noticed the Isabelle Leymarie article and asked if I was this person. The answer is 'no'. I'm a 27 designer passionate of Afro-American music. I contacted Isabelle (67 years old with absolutely no Internet skills) to ask her approval for this biography article. She was even happy to provide some pictures of herself to host and share through Wikimedia. Most of the references come from her own book, but I added some. It's sad that this person is internationally famous in this domain but has no visibility online. I hope you will approve the article and don't delete it. THANK YOU for me, and for her :-) Eltacotac (talk) 11:08, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi! There are several problems with the article. In Wikipedia, only articles about notable subjects are permitted (see: WP:NOTABILITY). You have to understand that Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, ant it should not have articles about every concept in this world, but only about those that are notable enough for encyclopedia. And, Wikipedia's criteria for notability is the existence of reliable, independent sources with significant coverage of the subject (see: WP:42). If there are reliable, independent sources (books, newspaper articles, trusted internet news portals, etc.) which significantly discuss the subject in detail, then the subject is notable. Otherwise, he is not notable. Articles about non-notable subjects usually get deleted. Your articles cites the books written by Isabelle Leymarie, but those are not independent sources, so they are useless for Wikipedia. You also added some sources that are independent ([1], [2], [3]), but they do not have significant coverage. They just mention her, but they do not discuss her life and work in detail, so those are also useless. You'll have to find and cite some reliable independent sources in order to prove the notability of the subject and to save the article from deletion.
Another problem with the article are photos. Wikipedia only accepts images that are either in the public domain (no copyrights) or those that are released under a free license by the author/copyrights holder. Since the copyrights holder of those photos is Isabelle Leymarie, we need her explicit permission to use those photos under a free license in order to host those photos in Wikipedia/Wikimedia Commons. Explicit permission means that she has to send an e-mail to you with the permission to use the photos under a free license. And, "free license" is very important here. If she just sends an e-mail and write "I agree those photos be used in Wikipedia", that is not enough. Wikipedia only accepts images that are released under a free license. That means that the author agrees that anybody may use those photos for any purpose, and may also modify them. Without such a permission, the photos may not be hosted in Wikimedia projects. Those photos will probably be deleted, but if you obtain an explicit permission, they may be un-deleted if you forward the permission to the Commons OTRS team. You also have an example of how the permission e-mail should look like there. I hope i clarified some issues. Feel free to ask me for any kind of help that you need.

Hi! Isabelle Leymarie is a real notable writer. She is famous worldwide for her Afro-American Black music expertise and her work is quoted in dozens of books and Wikipedia articles on the topic. I added some more references to show you the importance of her presence on Wikipedia. So please don't delete this article :-)
She sent yesterday a mail for Wikimedia permissions based on the template you provided and it was approved. Thanks!

Non noble schools[edit]

Hi. This is the English Wikipedia and you may not be aware that we have a special way of dealing with articles about non notable schools. Please follow up on your AfD nominations to understand why, and please consider redirecting such schools yourself rather thasn sending therm to AfD. If you need further information don't hesitate to contact me. Regards, Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 04:00, 22 August 2014 (UTC)


The links you provided on my talkpage was very helpful to me. I tried using the random article feature by the left side of my page to edit articles but all i see are things i am not very familiar with. Is there a way I can see articles on wikipedia related to my interest? MyUsernameHasAlreadyBeenUsed (talk) 00:34, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi! All Wikipedia articles are classified into categories. You can search categories to find the articles about your favorite topics. You can start from the root category which is Category:Main topic classifications. And, of course, you can type whatever you are interested in into the "search" field and look for the article you need. Vanjagenije (talk) 11:53, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Nifty erotic Stories Archive[edit]

How do I dispute the proposed deletion of this article? It seems to me no different than, which no one has proposed for deletion, or even publishers like Random House. What is in dispute? What is the harm done in this article? (It's very discouraging for me to put all this time, which should be obvious, into writing this article, and then to have it end up in the garbage can.) The page [[4]] says to click on a "Contest this Speedy Deletion" button, but I can't find it. deisenbe (talk) 11:25, 24 August 2014 (UTC)!

Hi! The article is not proposed for speedy deletion, it is put into discussion through the WP:AFD process. You can join the deletion discussion which is located here: Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Nifty erotic stories archive. But, be aware. Although it seams to you that this article is "no different than", there is a fundamental difference. Every Wikipedia article should cite reliable independent sources to establish the wp:Notability of the subject (see: WP:42). cites several reliable independent sources, while your article, Nifty erotic stories archive, does not cite any sources except the NESA site itself (not reliable independent source). Vanjagenije (talk) 11:32, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
Would you please do me the favor of looking at what I posted on Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Nifty_erotic_stories_archive#Nifty_erotic_stories_archive and advise me on my best course of action, if further action on my part is needed. I'm relatively new to WP.
You should just wait for the discussion to be closed. It usually lasts for 7 days. Of course, you are free to improve the article while discussion is ongoing. Vanjagenije (talk) 12:52, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

Re: Samuel Eson Johnson Ecoma[edit]

In reply to you Vanjagenije, i believe that this page/article should not be deleted from Wikipedia. First and foremost, the criteria of notability has been met, as the article talks about a notable personality who should be remembered for his wonderful and outstanding contributions to the growth of the Cross River State Judiciary. Secondly, the issue you raised about sources has been resolved. It should be kept in mind that this article was recently created and so for some time, like all other new articles on Wikipedia, it will undergo some editing and revision/amendments by the creator of the page. As regards the issue of sources, i have added three (3) significant sources/references to the article which discuss/describe Hon. Justice S. E. J. Ecoma and so are "significant". With time, other references will be added. In my opinion, this article/page created by me does not lack any significant detail or requirement which should make for its deletion. It is therefore my submission that this article should not be deleted.

Ecoma 1 (talk) 23:16, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

This is not a place for discussing the article. The deletion discussion about "Samuel Eson Johnson Ecoma" article is open here: Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Samuel Eson Johnson Ecoma. You are free to join the discussion and state your opinion. Wikipedia articles need to have several references to reliable independent sources that significantly cover the subject (see: WP:42). My opinion is that your sources do not contain significant coverage. Both [5] and [6] just mention him in passing, but there are no significant coverage. By the way, if you are related to Samuel Eson Johnson Ecoma, then you are having the WP:Conflict of interest, and you should read this carefully: WP:PLAINANDSIMPLECOI.

I noticed many experienced writers use Reflinks to create neat articles, can you educate me on how to make the phrase "filling with reflinks" show whenever I create future articles?MyUsernameHasAlreadyBeenUsed (talk) 00:18, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

Hi! Reflinks is a tool that is used to properly format citations in articles. It is not used to create articles. This tool is used to transform bare URLs into fully formatted citations, so to prevent link rot. When editing article using Reflinks tool, the edit summary is automatically filled with phrase "filling with reflinks". You can learn more about the tool and how to use it here: User:Dispenser/Reflinks. Feel free to ask me for further help. Vanjagenije (talk) 08:54, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
Thank you. I will love to use it. I will follow the link you provided, hopefully I will start using it today. MyUsernameHasAlreadyBeenUsed (talk) 16:53, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

Μη Βίαιη Επικοινωνία[edit]

Hi there. This article was meant for wikipedia generally. It is the greek translation of the english article on Nonviolent Communication. I thought that english wikipedia and greek wikipedia were the same thing, so after I moved it to live I realised that they were different. Then I copied it to greek wikipedia. So, it is ok for me to have it deleted as long as it is not deleted in the greek wikipedia also! In the english wikipedia text it is easy to mark a word that refers to an article just by using these brackets word. If I do the same to the words in the article of the greek wikipedia, the words become red and not blue, because there is no such article in the greek wikipedia. My question is: Is there an easy way to create links between the words and the articles in the english wikipedia, so when the readers hit on the words they will be taken to an article in english on that topic? Thank you (talk) 21:59, 8 September 2014 (UTC) (talk) 21:44, 8 September 2014 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:42, 8 September 2014 (UTC) 
Yes, you can make links between different language versions of Wikipedia. For example, in English Wikipedia, you can create a link to the article in Greek Wikipedia, by typing the "el" prefix. So, typing this: [[el:Ελλάδα|Greece]] will render this: Greece, which is a link to the Greek Wikipedia. Similarly, you can create a link from Greek Wikipedia to the English one by using the prefix "en". Vanjagenije (talk) 23:01, 8 September 2014 (UTC)


Hell, I would like to rewrite the athletic career for Tony Mattia, I have the paperwork, articles, and pictures. How do I rewrite this about his career and not be deleted. I am new to this, I apologize. Respectfully Submitted, Tony Mattia, ASU Graduate, --- preceding comment left by Custer1964 (talk · contribs)

Hi! As I understand, you are Tony Mattia and you want to write an article about yourself. In almost all cases, writing autobiographies is not allowed in Wikipedia (see: WP:AUTOBIOGRAPHY). Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, it is not to be used for self-promotion (WP:NOTPROMOTION) or any other kind of promotion. One of the basic principles of Wikipedia is the WP:Neutral point of view. All Wikipedia articles have to be neutral and verifiable, but you simply cannot be neutral if writing about yourself. If you still want to write an article about yourself, you should use the Articles for creation process, and wait for other editors to approve your article. To write an article using the Articles for creation, go here: WP:WIZARD. Vanjagenije (talk) 11:55, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

Lonesome Orchestra[edit]

Dear Vanjagenije, I have sent you links about Lonesome Orchestra which support the article, but I didn't get a response from you. Did you see this? Or have I left my comments in the wrong place? Kind regards, Arthur

Arthur Kegels (talk) 12:14, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

Hi! I don't understand where have you "sent" anything to me. There is nothing here on my talk page. Anyway, the discussion about your article is located here: Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Lonesome orchestra. That is the place for discussion the article, and you are free to join the discussion. You don't have to send the sources to me or to anybody else, sources need to be cited in the article (see: WP:42). You have to understand that Wikipedia articles need to cite several reliable independent sources that significantly discuss the subject. The links you provided are either unreliable (like blogs) or just mention the subject, with no significant coverage. Those are not enough to establish the notability (see: WP:NMUSIC).
