Considering he is a largely political cartoonist...[edit]

Although the article covers the bare facts of his life, it give no indication of who he is. as he is a political cartoonist it should be cover that his political bias is of the left (The Modern World). I came her for that kind of background as he was in a interview and needed to know where he was coming from. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:483:301:F2D0:7DF8:BFFC:5B8F:2F90 (talk) 14:52, 23 February 2016 (UTC)

Do we have permission[edit]

Do we have permission to use the enormous swath of text from his book? Joyous 19:56, Jun 6, 2005 (UTC)

Probably not. At the very least, the gratuitous quotations should be cited. It would make more sense to rewrite them. -- Krash 16:45, 8 Jun 2005 (UTC)

I have turned to this page because I noticed the same thing. The biography was quite obviously one massive copyvio, there is no indication anywhere that we have permission to use that text. I reverted to the version before the copyvio took place. If anyone wants to write a biography in their own words, that would be most welcome. Rl 19:00, 25 July 2005 (UTC)

Citation for Tomorrow's work with Moore[edit]

This is an interesting citation. It's to a blog post by Tomorrow asserting that an uncited claim on this Wikipedia article is correct, and that the blog post itself solves the sourcing problem for that claim. Talk about an echo chamber. My first instinct was to remove the citation as it seemed to be added as a joke, but after researching policy, in particular this passage, it looks like Tomorrow might actually be right. Though #3 in that passage might be a snag, since the claim involves Moore. What do you think, the maybe two editors that watch this talk page? -kotra (talk) 06:23, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

There's a "Press Release" here, again by Tomorrow. It does break the "third party" clause, but I feel it's such an insignificant claim that the self-published source shouldn't matter. Wyatt Riot (talk) 19:33, 9 December 2008 (UTC)
I think, from the self published sources section, that we would be violating rule #2 (it does not involve claims about third parties;) but that it is so insignificant that we should just remove it. Bonewah (talk) 18:31, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

Notability of this subject[edit]

Per notability of people "A person is presumed to be notable if he or she has been the subject of published[3] secondary source material which is reliable, intellectually independent,[4] and independent of the subject.[5]" What is needed here is someone else to say "Tom Tomorrow is a really important guy. I cant stress enough how important sources are to establishing notability, and this guy's blog doesnt count. Finally, you should not remove a tag without discussion, or at least, attempted discussion. Just FYI on that last part, I really dont mind, but some people do. Bonewah (talk) 14:29, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

The article is horribly unreferenced, but the subject is notable (syndicated in 150 newspapers, received the Robert F. Kennedy award twice). I'll look for references and report what I find within a day or two. I'd like to request that we hold off on AfDing it until then. -kotra (talk) 17:34, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
Sure thing, ill check back next week some time and we can revisit this subject. In the mean time, im going to offer up some edits that i think are necessary to improve the quality of this article, feel free to revert them if you think they are unhelpful. Thanks! Bonewah (talk) 18:43, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
Ok, im done with my edits for the time being, i noted my thinking in the edit summary, feel free to ask here for more explanation. Bonewah (talk) 18:49, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
Sorry about my slow response. I've added citations for the awards and the 150 newspapers statement (and adjusted it to say "over 90" since that's what the 2006/2007 source says; in 2002 Tomorrow said "closer to 150", but the number has likely changed since then). The article could still use additional citations, but I trust the notability is established. Removing the {{notability}} tag accordingly; feel free to revert me and discuss if you disagree of course. -kotra (talk) 20:53, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
