Note that the website is now 'down' a condolence statement is up instead. The pic mentioned above is on the page, don't know about the fair-use issue.
"The building that housed the operations of Canterbury Television was destroyed in the earthquake of February 22, 2011. Many of our staff are missing and lives have been lost.
The thoughts and heartfelt sympathies of those who remain go out to the families and friends of our missing colleagues, and to all in Christchurch who are missing or have lost a loved one in this tragedy."
This is the entire content of the site mainpage. Is it a Copyright infringement for me to have put it in the article? - 220.101talk\Contribs 12:10, 24 February 2011 (UTC)
The message is new, when the site went offline - it came back as a blank page with just the logo. The building image on this article is now under a fair-use rationale. 188.8.131.52 (talk) 13:01, 24 February 2011 (UTC)
As for copying the entire condolences message, I think technically it would be a copyright violation, as a complete verbatim copy. I think it also violates WP:NOTMEMORIAL. It would be better to mention that the website was replaced by a message of condolence, instead of the fulltext message, probably. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 13:01, 24 February 2011 (UTC)
Lists of people must meet the criteria listed at WP:LISTPEOPLE. Articles have been protected to prevent these additions and/or the editors in question blocked when they persistently continue to reinsert inappropriate material. If a name is included in the article in this way, it has to show that it's relevant to the subject by meeting WP:LISTPEOPLE. Just because a station lists its employees doesn't mean Wikipedia needs to as well, and other station articles needing similar cleanup doesn't mean this one doesn't need to be cleaned up, because whenever it's actually discussed on a station article, the end result is the same; the names that don't meet WP:LISTPEOPLE are removed. Wikipedia is also not a directory. See here, here, and here for previous discussions about this.
In other words -- Don't add names that do not have an article! Corkythehornetfan | Chat? 19:46, 22 February 2015 (UTC)
You have removed references to people that have died in the collapse of the CTV building. If you had looked at my edit summary, I suggested that the removal of the list is fine, but you need to keep the reference and work those who died into the prose of the article. The reference also applies to one of the presenters who does have an article, hence you removed too much content. Ok? Schwede66 21:22, 22 February 2015 (UTC)
