uw-coi notice[edit]

Hello, Zamuse. We welcome your contributions to Wikipedia, but if you are affiliated with some of the people, places or things you have written about on Wikipedia, you may have a conflict of interest or close connection to the subject.

All editors are required to comply with Wikipedia's neutral point of view content policy. People who are very close to a subject often have a distorted view of it, which may cause them to inadvertently edit in ways that make the article either too flattering or too disparaging. People with a close connection to a subject are not absolutely prohibited from editing about that subject, but they need to be especially careful about ensuring their edits are verified by reliable sources and writing with as little bias as possible.

If you are very close to a subject, here are some ways you can reduce the risk of problems:

  • Avoid or exercise great caution when editing or creating articles related to you, your organization, or its competitors, as well as projects and products they are involved with.
  • Be cautious about deletion discussions. Everyone is welcome to provide information about independent sources in deletion discussions, but avoid advocating for deletion of articles about your competitors.
  • Avoid linking to the Wikipedia article or website of your organization in other articles (see Wikipedia:Spam).
  • Exercise great caution so that you do not accidentally breach Wikipedia's content policies.

Please familiarize yourself with relevant content policies and guidelines, especially those pertaining to neutral point of view, verifiability of information, and autobiographies.

For information on how to contribute to Wikipedia when you have a conflict of interest, please see our frequently asked questions for organizations. Thank you. -- Uzma Gamal (talk) 03:33, 26 July 2012 (UTC)

Hello, I perfectly understand that I can be in a situation of "conflict of interest" - but it still remains to be proven that I have indeed written anything non verifiable, non objective, non relevant, or giving too much weight, credit or what have you, to this article. I have tried to give plain information about the journal (topics of recent and forthcoming issues), nothing that should be considered as advertising, propaganda or anything of the sort. I would love for someone to tell how anything I added to that page is eventually not "neutral", "biased" etc.
And if anything is, I will happily delete it or let anyone else do so.

Your recent edits[edit]

Information.svg Hello. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. You could also click on the signature button Insert-signature.png or Button sig.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your username or IP address and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when they said it. Thank you. --SineBot (talk) 11:56, 24 July 2012 (UTC)

Another option[edit]

I don't know what the issues are surrounding "Volume!" at this time. When several editors discussed this the first time I thought the matter settled. It did not occur to me that this article may come up at AfD. Unfortunately, at this time I am not able to get involved. In any case I reccomend a section in the "Music of France" article as an alternative. I have created such a section here. ---- Steve Quinn (talk) 14:15, 25 July 2012 (UTC)

The problem is that Volume is now more and more international (we receive more articles from the anglo-saxon world than from France, because there is not enough space in the other popular music journals, such as Popular Music, Popular Music & Society). Plus, anyway, Volume is not a journal of French popular music, but a French journal of popular music studies - articles dealing with France are not predominant.
Best, Zamuse (talk) 14:16, 26 July 2012 (UTC)
Go ahead and describe the journal however you know it to be. I certainly cannot claim to know this publication as well as you. ---- Steve Quinn (talk) 21:13, 26 July 2012 (UTC)
I was only commenting on the proposal of mentioning it in the "Music of France" page… Best, Zamuse (talk) 15:18, 27 July 2012 (UTC)

Purge function[edit]

Regarding comments at the Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Volume! AfD discussion, the red link appearing in the AfD template is almost always corrected (from my experience) by simply purging the page. This clears the page's server cache and updates the link as a functional blue-link. For more information, see Wikipedia:Purge. Happy editing! Northamerica1000(talk) 09:56, 31 July 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for February 17[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Elvis Presley, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Candlelight (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.

Cairn.info[edit]

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Cairn.info, and it appears to include material copied directly from http://www.cairn-int.info/about.php.

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.

Speedy deletion nomination of Cairn.info[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 Cairn.info, requesting that it be deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under two or more of the criteria for speedy deletion, by which articles can be deleted at any time, without discussion. If the page meets any of these strictly-defined criteria, then it may be soon be deleted by an administrator. The reasons it has been tagged are:

  • It appears to be a clear copyright infringement of http://www.cairn-int.info/about.php. (See section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion.) 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 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. However, even if you use one of these processes to release copyrighted material to Wikipedia, it still needs to comply with the other policies and guidelines to be eligible for inclusion. If you would like any assistance with this, you can ask a question at the help desk.

  • It appears to be about a person, organization (band, club, company, etc.), individual animal, or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. (See section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion.) Such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

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.
