Hello, Thank you for writing regarding CBGBs. The CBGBs entry is missing a hugely important & culturally relevant part. I thought it would be good to add it, since it is really weird that it is not there and high profile, but less important things are included. The Goth scene was underground culture previous to the web, so things like press and media coverage were not part of it or in any way desired. There was even a no camera rule there during the almost 10 year weekly event. There were no other regularly occurring events at CBGBs at all. It's bizarre that something that helped shape the world is being overlooked. Should I ask Steve Blush, a music journalist that was there, to write something? It seems like Wikipedia doesn't want good sources from what you wrote me. I am not sure what I should do. I have noticed that cultural things in wikipedia are very flawed. There is a whole page on Post Punk that is simply wrong, since it is based on agenda ridden journalism and revisionist history. I wanted to edit it, but it is so wrong that it's impossible to know where to start. I am feeling frustrated with this system. I guess I can just continue to let things be flawed and wrong.

Jeff Berlin[edit]

Thank you for putting the archive link for the Jeff Berlin website. But if you look at it, there is not any content there, all the links seem broken. Am I missing something? Thank you, MarioNovi (talk) 21:35, 26 December 2013 (UTC)

Screwed up or what? I've switched it to the latest good version - June 24 2012. Wwwhatsup (talk) 22:46, 26 December 2013 (UTC)
Good, thank you. I wanted to find useful information for the article but it still does not have any, do you agree? MarioNovi (talk) 22:53, 26 December 2013 (UTC)

Copyright checks when performing AfC reviews[edit]

Hello Wwwhatsup. This message is part of a mass mailing to people who appear active in reviewing articles for creation submissions. First of all, thank you for taking part in this important work! I'm sorry this message is a form letter – it really was the only way I could think of to covey the issue economically. Of course, this also means that I have not looked to see whether the matter is applicable to you in particular.

The issue is in rather large numbers of copyright violations ("copyvios") making their way through AfC reviews without being detected (even when easy to check, and even when hallmarks of copyvios in the text that should have invited a check, were glaring). A second issue is the correct method of dealing with them when discovered.

If you don't do so already, I'd like to ask for your to help with this problem by taking on the practice of performing a copyvio check as the first step in any AfC review. The most basic method is to simply copy a unique but small portion of text from the draft body and run it through a search engine in quotation marks. Trying this from two different paragraphs is recommended. (If you have any question about whether the text was copied from the draft, rather than the other way around (a "backwards copyvio"), the Wayback Machine is very useful for sussing that out.)

If you do find a copyright violation, please do not decline the draft on that basis. Copyright violations need to be dealt with immediately as they may harm those whose content is being used and expose Wikipedia to potential legal liability. If the draft is substantially a copyvio, and there's no non-infringing version to revert to, please mark the page for speedy deletion right away using {{db-g12|url=URL of source}}. If there is an assertion of permission, please replace the draft article's content with {{subst:copyvio|url=URL of source}}.

Some of the more obvious indicia of a copyvio are use of the first person ("we/our/us..."), phrases like "this site", or apparent artifacts of content written for somewhere else ("top", "go to top", "next page", "click here", use of smartquotes, etc.); inappropriate tone of voice, such as an overly informal tone or a very slanted marketing voice with weasel words; including intellectual property symbols (™,®); and blocks of text being added all at once in a finished form with no misspellings or other errors.

I hope this message finds you well and thanks again you for your efforts in this area. Best regards--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 02:20, 18 November 2014 (UTC).
