Dear Gbawden, why have you propsed to delete the article Samamtha Giles golfer? Multiple references have been provided to authenicate it. Please could you provide advise or shall I remove the delation notice. Thanks

Dear Gbawden, why have you submitted a deletion notice for the article "The relationship between physical sales and digital downloads in the music industry"? The editor/author of this page is in a course supported by the WikiEd foundation and has made updates and corrections to the article based on earlier feedback. The article is well-sourced and neutral in offering empirical evidence to demonstrate a relationship between physical sales and digital downloads. Please respond with clarification. Thank you.

I have updated only the information and services of the company (Sparx IT Solutons) with the reliable source. I think you should consider it. Apart of that, i am also trying to improve it more. Please consider it and give me one more chance to make the page live.

Thank you. Vivekkush1983 (talk) 10:52, 06 December 2016 (UTC)

Strategic Decisions Group speedy deletion[edit]

Hello - I wondered if you could give me some more feedback on why you proposed this page for deletion? This organization has made seminal contributions to the field of decision theory Decision theory so I thought that it met notability guidelines rather than being promotional. I would love to get some more input on it. Erinbh (talk) 13:33, 30 January 2017 (UTC)erinbh
