Speedy deletion of Claude W. Kinder[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Claude W. Kinder requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, 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. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for biographies.

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), 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 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.

February 2009[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. It might not have been your intention, but you removed a speedy deletion tag from Claude W. Kinder, a page you have created yourself. If you do not believe the page should be deleted, you can place a {{hangon}} tag on the page, under the existing speedy deletion tag (please do not remove the speedy deletion tag), and make your case on the page's talk page. Administrators will look at your reasoning before deciding what to do with the page. Thank you. Jenuk1985 | Talk 08:18, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Information.svg Please do not remove speedy deletion notices from pages you have created yourself, as you did with Claude W. Kinder. Please use the {{hangon}} template on the page instead if you disagree with the deletion. Thank you. Jenuk1985 | Talk 08:21, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Your recent edits[edit]

Hi there. 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. If you can't type the tilde character, you should click on the signature button Button sig.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your name and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when. Thank you! --SineBot (talk) 06:03, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

Removed content[edit]

Hello, I notice that you reinstated content I removed from the railways article. Please refrain from doing so! Including a large amount of images not only makes the article look kind of tacky, but it also makes the page load slower for pocketPCs, the Amazon Kindle, or slower connections. As a rule of thumb, try to stick to a few images that illustrate the direct subject matter -- in this case, that would be the railway itself.

I'm sorry that you're frustrated that your edits are being challenged, but if you really want to go out on a limb and attack the fact that I've pointed out something you're doing that's wrong, rather than address the actual issue, well .. I suppose that's your prerogative. Instead of that, though, why don't you try working in a way that allows a compromise to the article that makes everyone happy? No one "owns" a wiki page, you know! Wikipedia is an encyclopedia that anyone is free to edit - and removing a single image as what has got you so sad is not that big an edit. So please remember to assume good faith and remain civil. In the future, there is a manual of style, and if you want to avoid people copyediting the article in a way you don't like, well a good idea would be reading and following the manual of style!

I need help. I constructed a new page Canton -Sam Shui Railway within my own Chinrail User Page and then tried to rename it to its correct title. I have used "Redirect" but should have used "Move" to give it a new name. Now my User page is blocked and also the Canton -Sam Shui Railwage page shows as a "redirection" from Chinarail User Page. How do I put this right? I have tried "moving" the page again but need permission to rectify my mistake. Chinarail (talk) 07:03, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
