Walpurgisnacht[edit]

I beg to differ on the subject of your neutrality. However, I do appreciate the fact that you have chosen to contact me regarding the matter. The article has served the purpose for which it was intended. Ms. ----, If you happen to have a free weekend; Bavaria is quite beautiful. I have fond memories of a winter sleigh ride to Neuschwanstein Castle. Enjoy your new posting.(LycianFelix (talk) 01:10, 4 February 2009 (UTC)) —Preceding unsigned comment added by LycianFelix (talkcontribs)

Deletion of Punta Delgada[edit]

Just to let you know, I nominated Punta Delgada for G6 speedy deletion since there are no links to the items mentioned in the disambiguation page. If the articles exist, add the links please.--Unionhawk Talk E-mail Review 15:20, 5 November 2009 (UTC)

Unreferenced BLPs[edit]

Information.svg Hello Webmgr! Thank you for your contributions. I am a bot alerting you that 1 of the articles that you created is tagged as an Unreferenced Biography of a Living Person. The biographies of living persons policy requires that all personal or potentially controversial information be sourced. In addition, to ensure verifiability, all biographies should be based on reliable sources. If you were to bring this article up to standards, it would greatly help us with the current 1,452 article backlog. Once the article is adequately referenced, please remove the {{unreferencedBLP}} tag. Here is the article:

  1. Karsten Voigt - Find sources: "Karsten Voigt" – news · newspapers · books · scholar · JSTOR · free images

Thanks!--DASHBot (talk) 05:14, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

Olga Holtz[edit]

This is an automated message from VWBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Olga Holtz, and it appears to be a substantial copy of http://www.cs.berkeley.edu/~oholtz/vita.html.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material. You may use such publications as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details. (If you own the copyright to the previously published content and wish to donate it, see Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials for the procedure.) VWBot (talk) 14:54, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Olga Holtz[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 Olga Holtz requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a clear copyright infringement. 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.

If the external website belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text — 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 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 that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} 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 hang-on 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. The Blade of the Northern Lights (話して下さい) 15:19, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

This isn't to discourage you from making an article about her; she has an article on German Wikipedia. However, if you are going to do that you cannot copy and paste her CV from an external website; even though some of it was paraphrased, it was far too close to let go. When it gets deleted, I'd encourage you to recreate the article without the infringing material. The Blade of the Northern Lights (話して下さい) 15:21, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
Thanks. Have added interwiki link. Keep up the good work; I really appreciate your contribution at maintaining WP's quality standards. --Webmgr (talk) 20:32, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

I wanted to compliment you for reworking that article; it looks good now. Thanks for your hard work!! The Blade of the Northern Lights (話して下さい) 19:01, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

Nomination of Allison Stanger for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Allison Stanger is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Allison Stanger until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on good quality evidence, and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion template from the top of the article. aprock (talk) 05:15, 3 October 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Paris Pact Initiative, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Macedonia and Trafficking (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Proposed deletion of Carsten Jacobson[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Carsten Jacobson has been proposed for deletion because, under Wikipedia policy, all newly created biographies of living persons must have at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within ten days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one.

Fiddle Faddle (talk) 19:42, 1 April 2012 (UTC)

As an experienced editor you will be aware that simply changing a few words here and there is insufficient to create an article here. A full rewrite is required, perhaps using that original text as a citation. Your article has a substantial verbatim text match with the original, and other words show only light changes. Fiddle Faddle (talk) 19:45, 1 April 2012 (UTC)
As an experienced editor, have you considered the possibility that there might have been a copyright-free source for the bio of a former government official? Such as [1] and [2], maybe? --Webmgr (talk) 06:20, 2 April 2012 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Richard Moore (engineer)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Richard Moore (engineer) has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, all newly created biographies of living persons must have at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article. The nominator also raised the following concern:

All biographies of living people created after March 18, 2010, must have references.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within ten days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. Yworo (talk) 07:07, 31 August 2012 (UTC)

Would his official bio, from his own university web page, already referenced under "external links," suffice? --Webmgr (talk) 07:20, 31 August 2012 (UTC)
No, footnote your articles about living people when you create them, or don't create them. Sources must be reliable, third-party secondary sources, not primary ones affiiated with or written by the subject. Yworo (talk) 07:27, 31 August 2012 (UTC)
...unless they meet the requirements listed on WP:SELFPUB --Webmgr (talk) 07:37, 31 August 2012 (UTC)
Nope, primary sources alone do not establish notability. See the general notability guideline. An article with no secondary sources at all will be deleted. Typically, a minimum of two reliable, independent, third-party sources are needed to establish notability. We don't write biographies of people for whom no other third-party biographical sources exist. Yworo (talk) 07:38, 31 August 2012 (UTC)
Actually, the criteria for academics would apply. --Webmgr (talk) 08:05, 31 August 2012 (UTC)
Only if you can establish verifiability using independent, third-party, reliable sources. We do not take the subject's word for their accomplishments. We use self-published pages from the subject only for personal data such as date and place of birth, residence, etc. If you can establish the facts through reliable independent third-party sources, then the criteria for academics would apply. The verifiability requirement isn't negotiable, it is required. Yworo (talk) 15:19, 31 August 2012 (UTC)

Revandalism[edit]

Ok, so I forgot to add a source for this tiny contribution. It may appear a quick solution to simply delete unsourced contributions, rather than making the effort of amending another user's slight. In the long run, however, such unforgiving practice frustrates well-intentioned authors, not just women, and discourages further participation. Verifying and adding missing sources may be an annoying chore, but it immediately improves the article, and it establishes a work atmosphere that benefits the WP project at large. Blindly reverting and deleting, on the contrary, isn't helpful — neither for the article nor for the overall collaborative climate. --Webmgr (talk) 04:58, 5 October 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for October 5[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Richard G. Olson, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page With honors (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

The toolserver is brilliant; I am starting to wonder though why the 'enhanced editing toolbar' here the 'insert link' dialogue merely states 'Page exists' when really it should say 'Page exists BUT that is only a redirect/disamb.' --Webmgr (talk) 05:50, 7 October 2012 (UTC)

Will McBride photo[edit]

Although the Will McBride photo has a web presence, I do not see WP:RS on the net with encyclopedic content that makes it WP:N. You need some RS to use as WP:ICs. Until you can find them, I have removed the image link from More Demi Moore.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 08:35, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

User_talk:TonyTheTiger#More_Demi_Moore --Webmgr (talk) 21:32, 19 February 2014 (UTC)
Photos are primary sources. You need secondary sources that discuss this photo in an encyclopedic way.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 21:37, 19 February 2014 (UTC)
Alright then: This description page mentions the scandal that the "primary source" caused; the "reliable source" still being the archives of the Museum of German History. --Webmgr (talk) 07:22, 27 February 2014 (UTC)
