Dear Wiki editors, don't delete what you don't understand!
- We understand, but you don't understand our notability requirements. The references provided are not suitable. The first does not mention him at all. The second is iffy, but by itself in sufficient. The third (Zacuto) seems to be related to sales or promotional material, and therefore not considered a reliable source. The remaining two are from his own website and are therefore primary sources, also not considered reliable. - Realkyhick (Talk to me) 04:01, 19 October 2010 (UTC)
- RE Realkyhick. I will find better references. I have only had 5 minutes so far. Give me a chance to rectify it first. Philip Bloom IS a notable creative person, as much as any other cinematographer on Wikipedia is. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Spikemichaelreid (talk • contribs) 04:03, 19 October 2010 (UTC)
Added IMDB entry for Philip Bloom on Red Tails (Lucasfilm), corrected lack of mention in Gizmodo ref —Preceding unsigned comment added by Spikemichaelreid (talk • contribs) 04:13, 19 October 2010 (UTC)
- Fair enough. I have a gut feeling you may be right, so I'll take down the speedy for now, with the right to post it again later if warranted. - Realkyhick (Talk to me) 04:15, 19 October 2010 (UTC)
RE: WookieInHeat, Realkyhick - Thank you. Can I ask of you both a question. Philip has completed cinematography for Sky, Fox, Canon, Panasonic and the BBC - will carefully select appropriate refs soon - How reliable are the personal blogs of others as references - are they generally accepted? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Spikemichaelreid (talk • contribs) 04:22, 19 October 2010 (UTC)
Added BBC reference RE Philip Bloom's pioneering (as cinematographer) use of social media to share and democratise filmmaking skills
- personal blogs don't usually qualify as a WP:RS, there are some exceptions, but very few. reliable sources usually consist of news articles from established media outlets, books and magazines published by reputable publishers, etc. if you have any further questions regarding sources feel free to ask me.
