Susan Boyle[edit]

This will get removed because it's not referenced and looks like original research. SunCreator (talk) 23:03, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

Clearly "group think" at work regarding Susan Boyle's pre-audience reaction. They were not "all against her" as Amanda Holden said. They were not "all laughing at her" as Piers Morgan said. They gave her a loud supportive cheer when she announced her song selection. Rewatch the video and listen for the cheer. Listen for the loud supportive cheer when she said "And that's just one side of me." It's easy to see how myths are born. Even with video to verify the truth people like you will let the comments of others recast the truth.

Unreferenced BLPs[edit]

Information.svg Hello Wickorama! 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 1,407 article backlog. Once the article is adequately referenced, please remove the {{unreferencedBLP}} tag. Here is the article:

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

Thanks!--DASHBot (talk) 22:58, 17 January 2010 (UTC)

Dan Gilbert (businessman)[edit]

Can we agree not to comment on his choice of font? It just look immature. Nevertheless, I'm more than confident you can find reliable source on that by tomorrow though. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 07:39, 9 July 2010 (UTC)

I was actually going for a WP:WEIGHT issue, but the font thing is really surprising big. You were right on that. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 06:17, 10 July 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Goin' Country[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Goin' Country, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G4 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a repost of material that was previously deleted following a deletion debate, such as at articles for deletion. Under the specified criteria, where an article has substantially identical content to that of an article deleted after debate, and any changes in the content do not address the reasons for which the material was previously deleted, it may be deleted at any time.

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 admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you.

Speedy deletion nomination of Onward![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 Onward!, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become an encyclopedia article. Please read the guidelines on spam and Wikipedia:FAQ/Business for more information.

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 see the Trayvon Martin Talk Page[edit]

I've reverted the addition of The Young Turks material again because it seems to present a conflict where there is no conflict. George's father and brother are not firsthand witnesses. They are recounting events as they recall them from what George told them. Simply leaving out a detail does not make George a liar. If the stories were substantially different, we might be able to say it is a substantial thing that needs some attention, but as this stands, it is merely a biased statement being added because two people do not retell the same event the exact same way, yet neither of them were there and this is all given secondhand. This is simply not encyclopedic to add this in this manner. I've started a section on the Talk page to discuss its addition or removal. Thanks. -- Avanu (talk) 12:02, 6 April 2012 (UTC)

George Zimmerman's Account of Events[edit]

I agree with Editor Isaidnoway's decision to re-establish the title as "George Zimmerman's Account of Events." "Others" include both Zimmermans's father and investigators, all of whom are quoted in this section.

Until the trial, summarizing their public statements will probably remain our best good-faith effort at presenting George Zimmerman's side of the story. Though George Zimmerman made a brief public statement at the bond hearing (for which he was harshly criticized by the Martin family), given the charges that have been levied against him, legal counsel has likely advised him not to speak publicly. The decision whether or not to take the stand at trial will be a difficult one, especially given the numerous threats made by those who demonstrate little respect for the legal process and who will only be satisfied by Zimmerman's death.

We have been careful to note when we are quoting Robert Zimmerman, who spent considerable time with his son during the days following the shooting. We also note when we are quoting investigator sources. Hopefully these efforts at transparency will somewhat address your concerns.

Similarly, the section titled "Prosecution's Account of Events" summarizes the other side of the story, based mostly on their "Affidavit of Probable Cause." Apostle12 (talk) 21:52, 13 May 2012 (UTC)

Categorization of programming language articles[edit]

Note that Wikipedia has very clear policy regarding page categorization. Please read Categorizing pages, which states:

...each categorized page should be placed in all of the most specific categories to which it logically belongs. This means that if a page belongs to a subcategory of C (or a subcategory of a subcategory of C, and so on) then it is not normally placed directly into C.

The exception to this is non-diffusing categories, of which those related to programming languages are not. I am reverting your changes once again.

Moreover, you also undid many formatting changes I made to those same articles. Please be more careful when editing. Mindmatrix 14:28, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Software using the Boost license[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 Software using the Boost license requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an article with no content whatsoever, or whose contents consist only of external links, a "See also" section, book references, category tags, template tags, interwiki links, a rephrasing of the title, or an attempt to contact the subject of the article. 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.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but 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 yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Mr. Vernon (talk) 06:27, 19 July 2012 (UTC)

POV tag on Historicity of Jesus[edit]

Hi there! I just wanted to let you know that a belated discussion on your tag has started. Martijn Meijering (talk) 10:07, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

The discussion has been reopened, with several editors in favour of removing the tag. Without any input as to what's wrong, they are entitled to remove it. If you want to have your concerns discussed, this might be the time to do it. I don't really agree with the point you were making on the Talk page, but I do have my own concerns about bias.
