Speedy deletion nomination of HMSHost[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on HMSHost requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article or image appears to be a clear copyright infringement. This article or image appears to be a direct copy from For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website or image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text or image — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website or image but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Bgwhite (talk) 07:28, 28 June 2014 (UTC)

  • I hate these automated tools!. Note well that this was created, and my last edits were in 2005! There is no copy vio in what I did at that time! As another editor did, you should have removed the newly added copyvio text. Vegaswikian (talk) 15:53, 28 June 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Altigany Almahy Hospital[edit]

Hello Vegaswikian. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Altigany Almahy Hospital, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: There is an assertion of importance here, but I agree it is probably not notable in the end. If the PROD is contested then AFD might be a good idea. Thank you. §FreeRangeFrogcroak 01:50, 1 July 2014 (UTC)


I suggest that you archive the dead links. Having dead links in an article is pointless and they need to either be archived to that the archived version can be used or they need to be removed. You decide as you reverted my edit.--BabbaQ (talk) 21:48, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

Or find new sources, because right now the article is unsourced.--BabbaQ (talk) 21:50, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

Alcohol (drug)[edit]

Is there a reason why you're changing it to point to the actual Alcohol page, blindly? In many contexts, especially those referring it to a source of abuse/etc., that link is relevant. ViperSnake151  Talk  01:01, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

Erin Bilbray[edit]

I see you've posted some comments on Erin Bilbray's AFD page, but you haven't actually voted there, have you? I mean with a support or oppose? Lightbreather (talk) 20:29, 4 July 2014 (UTC)


Can't policy pages have a lighter spirit? They are so heavy and serious. I wanted to inject some levity. I will try with another, non-bouncing image.OnBeyondZebrax (talk) 17:50, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
