Requested move[edit]

The Graphic Artists GuildGraphic Artists Guild — The logo pictured says distinctly "Graphic Artists Guild", with no "The", and the article's own creator does not boldface "The" in the opening sentence. Wiki MOS for article titles is not to include "The" unless part of proper name. Yet for unclear reasons, this page is protected and this message appears: "You cannot move a page to this location, because the new title has been protected from creation."

You're absolutely correct, however this page has been deleted in the past, twice, because someone took the Guild's "About Us" page and used that to create a Wikipedia entry with no further sourcing, and thus some moderator locked the proper page. This time the article, while not perfect, should pass muster as it has original writing, plenty of independent sources, and many links back from other Wikipedia articles. But I'm not going to make the effort to unlock the correct page. I've already been through that hell with my Tareq Salahi page, and the effort is just not worth the emotional drain. scooteristi (talk) 04:41, 11 May 2010 (UTC)
OK. Good to know -- and sincere thanks for the input. I'll take up the baton. --Tenebrae (talk) 02:33, 20 May 2010 (UTC)

 Done I've now unprotected the page and moved this page to the correct title. Jafeluv (talk) 12:38, 21 May 2010 (UTC)


The "Advocacy" section, while containing and citing objective news of laws passing, relies over and over on a single source, a Lisa Shaftel, article, "Proud To Be A Union Artist, Part One: Yes, the Graphic Artists Guild Is Really a Labor Union," from the organization;s own newsletter.

Cause-and-effect claims of what part the Guild may or may not have played in the passage of these laws should not come from the organization itself but from reliable third-party sources. The Guild, for example, may have been one of a dozen organizations fighting for a law, which paints a different picture of any one group's impact than any one group may believe.

In any event, if we're speaking about the passage of important laws, then surely some objective journalistic source can be cited, and not the Guild newsletter itself ... over and over. --Tenebrae (talk) 16:33, 16 January 2011 (UTC)
