If the organization posts on it's website that the content of that page is in the public domain (or I think the creative commons license) then it's okay. There are some other ways to allow a copy too, but not something I know a lot about. Hobit (talk) 04:15, 23 July 2008 (UTC)


Just in case there is a notability problem, see [1] —Preceding unsigned comment added by Hobit (talkcontribs) 04:17, 23 July 2008 (UTC)


This article does not say much about the festival other than that it is staged every year in June and July. The rest of the article is about the Festival Music Society. It would probably be better if the article were renamed "Festival Music Society". --DAJF (talk) 02:22, 15 September 2008 (UTC)

Moved to more appropriate "Festival Music Society". --DAJF (talk) 02:37, 16 September 2008 (UTC)


DAJF: I've just rewritten the article. We are now using the name Indianapolis Early Music rather than Festival Music Society. I don't know how to correct the title so that it says "Indianapolis Early Music". It would be great if someone searching for "Indianapolis Early Music Festival" or "Festival Music Society" would be re-directed to "Indianapolis Early Music." I know I need to add citations and references -- I just don't know how to do it and I've not been able to find the Wiki instructions on how to do it (or, frankly, I don't understand them). Could you help me on this? Thanks. Gblandrigan (talk) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Gblandrigan (talkcontribs) 03:20, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

I have moved the article to the new name as requested, and I have also reinstated the maintenance tags you deleted, but if you are closely involved with the organization, I would strongly recommend you read WP:COI and refrain from adding promotional-sounding wording to the article. If the issues with article cannot be addressed in the near future, I will nominate the article for deletion. --DAJF (talk) 05:36, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for making the title change. I have spent the day trying to learn the Wiki code in order to re-write this one article. I believe that any appearance of bias or reasonably unverifiable comment has been rectified, therefore, I have removed the COI or Peacock/Advertising tags. If any problems along these lines remain, please note specifically so that I know what to look for. You mention "promotional-sounding" wording. Do you mean the inclusion of the 2010 season? My thought is that it shows the sort of performances the IEM produces rather than puffery. I have also added several references, links, etc. and will add a few more soon. This leaves us with the lead section (which seems to follow the Wiki guidelines, but will wait a couple of days for your thoughts before removing the tag) as well as the orphan tag. The latter may now be fine, but I'm uncertain from the Wiki guidelines, due to the grammar used, whether or not it requires other Wikipedia articles to link to us or us to them. Again, thanks for your help. Gblandrigan (talk)
