Writers / Composers

I think the composers / writers of a song is very importent. They should be recognised for there work. Without the writer(s)/Composers there is no song. When I come to Wikipedia, That is the info I am looking for about the songs. You need the composers of the songs so you can pay the copyright for the song to them.

Album pages

Why are you changing the way the songwriters' names are listed on the album pages I've edited? The Kenny Chensey ones for example.

Vala M 20:37, 9 April 2007 (UTC)

Ok, I see what you mean. But I used billboard.com as my reference and it used the "last name comma first name" type so I just used it.

World history 101

Ok, I see the site, how does that make it a single? Google turns up nothing, neither does allmusic.com or billboard.com. I think if it's going to be listed, it should have a mention of being a an unofficial single/album cut, whatever the proper term is for that sort of thing.

AfD nomination of List of former Mervyns locations

An editor has nominated List of former Mervyns locations, an article on which you have worked or that you created, for deletion. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not"). Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of Parisian locations and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~). You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate. Thank you. Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it.

Labelscar

  • Hey there. I wanted to send you a message to request that you cease creating external links (even for reference purposes) to Labelscar.com, which is my site. I know I have authorized this or the use of our photos in the past but some Wikipedia editors have classified the site as spam as part of Wikipedia:WikiProject Spam, and have been dinging the links (all but a few of which were not created by me) as linkspam. I want to play nice and don't want to cause a PR firestorm so I'd prefer it if you could refrain in the future, and preferably if you would remove the links you have created. I apologize for this, but I have to adhere to the Wikipedia policies. Thanks. DanAbnrml9 12:32, 28 April 2007 (UTC)

Charts

Ok. But the way I see it is that country music should be proud of itself and not sell itself as pop and such just to try and attract more fans. I mean, not too many people like country anymore (at least where I am) and I think that there should be some sort of country music fan pride or something. In my opinion, these songs were written to be country songs not pop, I don't listen to pop so I can't understand why pop stations would play country songs and vice versa. Bon Jovi on the other hand, has released at least one song specifically to country, kind of hopping on the country bandwagon if you know what I mean so that is different than songs that were intended to play on country stations playing on pop stations. I know that probably doesn't make much sense but that's how I feel about it. Now if this were another band like Rascal Flatts, I'd agree with you but this is Sugarland we're talking about here.

Anyway, I have noticed that this week, you have used the Radio and Records chart postions for the updated positions this week.

Induced dyslexia

I am glad I checked the posting for Induced dyslexia so that I discovered before May 20th that you had deleted it.

I am new to contributing to Wikipedia so that I am not sure of the procedures to make sure that there is proper validation and verification of posted items.

The basis for my posting was a personal discovery as to why I was having a horrendous difficulty understanding text material for about a 5 year period. When I got new progressive glasses with a "corrected prescription" after 4 years, I also got reading glasses to wear while at work and while using my computer. About 6 months ago thanks in part to the "Cambridge spelling sample" I discovered that the loss of comprehension problem was from the effect if the reduced peripheral vision inherent in progressive glasses.

See http://www.mrc-cbu.cam.ac.uk/~mattd/Cmabrigde for the original article and additional references.

I am currently working with the Chairman of the Ophthalmology Department of Emory University to see if they can provide additional documentation and cases of this vision problem. He is very aware of the reduction of peripheral vision that is inherent in progressive glasses. In most cases, however, the wearer realizes the debilitation of progressive glasses and gets either bi-focals (which I now have) or tri-focals without bothering to analyze or understand the mechanics of the problem. I seem to be unique in thinking that the vision problem I was having was internal or emotional rather than because I was wearing the wrong glasses. It seems that I failed to understand the difference between being able to see the "Big E" and comprehending what I was reading. I also failed to understand the optician’s priorities for satisfying most patients was that they "look good" rather than their being able to "see well."

If you will let me figure out how to add proper additional documentation, I would greatly appreciate having the article re-posted.

Historic Places AFD

Hey Ten Pound, I wanted to point out that the Admin who restored the article and doesn't believe the article should be deleted is personally involved with said article and should take this article to Deletion Review... not restore it and AFD... he abused his/her power... I voted for SPEEDY redelete as the admin is not adhering to policy.Balloonman 03:42, 20 May 2007 (UTC)

I agree that I have handled this improperly. I apologize. If you note in the deletion log, It was I who redeleted it. I have started a discussion at deletion review, if you are interested in comenting there. Dsmdgold 03:56, 20 May 2007 (UTC)
I'm not sure if it deserves to have been deleted or not... I probably would have voted to keep it, if it wasn't for the fact that you shouldn't have reinstated it... heck, it wouldn't have bothered me if you, as an admin, deemed another admin to have acted in error and restored the article... IF you weren't personally involved with said article. as an involved editor, it changes the criteriaBalloonman 04:01, 20 May 2007 (UTC)
Well, it really doesn't change the criteria. As I explained here and as Amarkov explained here, articles deleted by PROD are immediately restored upon the retroactive contesting of deletion, irrespective of the involvement of the contestor with the article; although it may have been preferable for Dsmdgold simply to ask the deleting admin to undelete, such undeletion would have been reflexive, and so there is absolutely no abuse of admin tools here, and his undeleting and listing at AfD was entirely consistent with policy. In any event, speedy delete would not have been a tenable even were the undeletion out-of-process, and so your closure of the AfD would have been disfavored had Dsmdgold not (graciously) acceded to redeletion. Although all surely acted in good faith here, one might do well to recognize that in a world of real admin overreaching, abuse of tools ought not to be hurled about so lightly. Joe 06:56, 20 May 2007 (UTC)
Eh, that last line, amongst others, sounds a bit high-handed; my bad. I mean only to suggest that some of the breathlessness over Dsm's undeletion was probably unnecessary, but so too probably was that of my comment.  :) Joe 06:59, 20 May 2007 (UTC)
The perception still exists... thus, a wiser course of action would be to appeal it and have a non-partisan admin make the undeletion. Which would have been perfectly acceptable. But I respect DSM for taking the actions he did after concern was raised about said action.Balloonman 20:44, 20 May 2007 (UTC)

Just to be sure that you can justify your opinion: could you specify just one point where you are sure it is my POV and not a rather common cultural prejudice? I'm not saying that you can't do it, I'm just curious what would you pick up if as you say the choice is so big...

Dear TenPoundHammer

Hi, dear TenPoundHammer. I'm contacting you because you recently made this comment at AfD, regarding a speedy deletion I performed. I'm the first one to say I'm fallible and may have committed a mistake; in fact I mess up monumentally much more often than I'd wish. However, I find it saddening that you saw fit to qualify my action as "Bad faith". Just to let you know, that particular day I performed hundreds of deletions and speedy tag removals after reviewing CSD candidates, and it is simply inevitable that a few of them end up needing further scrutiny. Immediately assuming bad faith without any sign of it other than your own assumption can hurt, and actually hurts other people who's only trying to help. Regards, Phaedriel - 00:21, 23 May 2007 (UTC)

No harm done. I hope we can start over from the beginning again :) Green signatures must stick together! ;) Love, Phaedriel - 00:26, 23 May 2007 (UTC)

I was assuming the Bad faith line was directed at me :) I can see on this matter I could be wrong to CSD the article, and that this may meet notability for sports people. I don't mind having the occasional harsh word thrown my way however, so happy there is no fallout. Still think the article is scraping the barrel of notability, but hey, more people disagree so happy to go along with it :). Raerth 00:34, 23 May 2007 (UTC)

Ivan Molina

You nominated the article on Ivan Molina for speedy deletion four minutes after its creation and while its creator was still working on it as the edit history clearly shows. Molina is a French Open mixed doubles champion (with Martina Navratilova) and played over 40 Davis Cup matches for Columbia as a ten second search on Google would have shown you. I added a couple of sources to the article and cleaned it up. Please give people a change to write an article, it's really dispiriting to new users when perfectly legitimate subjects are nailed like this. How about looking for a source, and then adding it yourself, before tagging it for deletion? Or just a tag asking for sources? This is not an obvious vandalism or vanity page and shouldn't be treated like one. Nick mallory 08:28, 26 May 2007 (UTC)

The Mall at Johnson City.

Point taken on that. I was copying text from word over it each time that i had worked up using the proper HTML coding. Its easier to work in that environment and bring it over.

What i want to know is why some entries have no sources and they are not tagged or flagged. I did include external links. Ive searched the courthouse records, property records. However, i could source those, but they dont exist. Sometimes history is about memories. Its a start. When i find more.... I will definately add more. Maybe someone's mind will be jogged and have a paper or something. I will keep looking.

But that is an important question....WHy some articies are flagged and some are not. Many dont have sources, but they have external links. Which I had added.

I see the present policy is being challenged, but at the moment it remains: "Non-administrators may only close decisions which are unambiguous "keep" decisions" WP:DPR#NAC. Thanks for calling my attention to the ongoing discussion. DGG 00:15, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

Circle Christian School

Why did you tag my page for speedy deletion?? It's not spam. I don't even work for the school or anything. I was just reporting on a local high school.

It's okay. I'll clean it up a bit and make it more encyclopedic.

Fair use rationale for Image:Aarontippinstand.jpg

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading Image:Aarontippinstand.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. BigrTex 19:16, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

Hi - as far as I am aware, you can modify Wikipedia documents as long as you release them under the GFDL; therefore as es-wiki and en-wiki are both covered under the licence, there's no copyright issue. EliminatorJR Talk 17:55, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

Hold off on the speedy

Though I do believe Gondola spider is a hoax, I decided to remove the speedy tag. We might as well see how this turns out. Zagalejo 20:33, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

I mean, it's not looking very promising, but hoaxes generally aren't speedy-able anyway. Zagalejo 20:38, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

"lupin" = "looping"

Hi. As a side issue to the discussion of deleting Lúpin, I thought I'd mention that "lupin" actually is lunfardo for "loop-the-loop", according to this dictionary. Also, at this forum you can see both "lupin" and "looping" used in connection with roller coasters. —JerryFriedman 04:42, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

Cow Tipping

Good for you closing this AfD: A WP:BOLD move for a non-admin. Especially since having voted in the discussion, you are not completely without an interest. Way to properly exercise WP:IAR. If you get any flak for this, please let me know (talk page or email) and I will back you up. Gaff ταλκ 00:22, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

I would urge you to reopen the AFD, as it may be improper for you to close it having participated in the discussion. Regards, Navou 00:58, 7 June 2007 (UTC)
To avoid a headache for yourself down the road, since there is an objection, the best thing is probably to re-open. However, I must wander the point of this AfD. Nonetheless, non-admin closure guidelines are a little murky. You could instead request comment from an admin, who might be willing to endorse your closure. Gaff ταλκ 01:10, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

I unclosed the AfD. Let the community decide. 01:13, 7 June 2007 (UTC)Gaff ταλκ 01:13, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

Gaff, thank you for your consideration with this, also, no real point to it, except what I cited in the nomination. I think keeping it open for at least a day will allow enough time for uninvolved parties to run across it. Historically I have withdrawn and closed AFD's I have nominated where WP:SNOW was applicable.
I thought that TPH did the right thing to ignore the rules here for the sake of what is best for Wikipedia. There is a very large backlog of AfD discussion, including 69 from June 1, as of now. I think that taking up AfD editors time with a snowball is counter-productive. Gaff ταλκ 01:52, 7 June 2007 (UTC)
Hammer, I have no issue with the non admin closure, it does not take an admin. Then only thing that got me was the fact that you had already participated, its always best to not close discussions where you have participated. But hey... we all start somewhere. Cheers, Navou 01:21, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

schneidertec: regarding request for speedily deleting Berry Springs Park

schneidertec: regarding request for speedily deleting Berry Springs Park

Hi,

I'm a newbie at Wikipedia authors. I'm trying for the second time to post an article about Berry Springs Park in Georgetown, TX. Even though I think I did everything right the request to delete came pretty quickly after every posting.

So what am I doing wrong? There were several hours between the first posting today ( I save my work a lot while working on it ) and the final version. Did this time delay provoke your request?

If so, please delete your request and enjoy my article with the many nice pics I made ( drove out there tonight just to make better ones than those I already had ).

Otherwise, your tips would be appreciated.

Thanks Frank Schneider PS I do plan to expand to include other Georgetown parks.

Non-notable company article for deletion

Thanks for gonging Supreme. Could you give some consideration to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Center for Urological Regional Entrepreneurship? I'm concerned that AfD will time out before anyone comments.

I'm canvassing somewhat because I inadvertently made this same comment on User_talk:Tone. / edgarde 20:40, 14 June 2007 (UTC)

Steven O'Brien

Thanks for slapping a sppedy tag on this almost immediately after I nominated it for AfD. I considered speedying it but decided that the junior entrepreneur award might barely constitute an assertion of notability. You may want to look at the article Nathanael McDaniel, which I've added to the AfD nom. If Steven O'Brien gets speedied, I'd like to see that one deleted as well. Deor 02:11, 15 June 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image (Image:Blakesheltonalbum.jpg)

Thanks for uploading Image:Blakesheltonalbum.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BetacommandBot 15:19, 16 June 2007 (UTC)

AFD closures

I noticed you've been forgetting to delist AFDs that you close, ie, forgetting to remove the {{REMOVE THIS TEMPLATE WHEN CLOSING THIS AfD|-}} bit. I thought I'd let you know before this came back to bite you. Those AFDs man, they get upset if you don't delist them...Someguy1221 04:44, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

On the speedy closure of AfD's

Just a note, be careful and use wisdom on the non-admin closure of AFDs. You generally don't want to do this unless 1) the article in question not only qualifies for a speedy delete, and is indeed deleted, or 2) you're doing a speedy keep and can safely close as per WP:SNOW. --Dennis The Tiger (Rawr and stuff) 21:10, 24 June 2007 (UTC)

Amy Ried

I believe that your closure of the above may be in breach of protocol. (Not that I am necessarily in disagreement with the specific closure, as such)

An AfD may only be speedily closed on withdrawl of a nomination when there are no other opposing votes. In the above case, there was just one. I have seen you perform quite a few closures, and I can understand that you are eager to lighten the workload of AfD by taking up the job of an admin even though you are not. I am unsure how your non-admin closures are likely to be viewed by the community, but it is not the norm. That is surely why there are administrators and us mere mortals. I would echo User:Dennisthe2 that you should exercise caution. The action, combined perhaps with a less than adequate knowledge of policies, could backfire. Ohconfucius 09:26, 25 June 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Aaron cotw.jpg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Aaron cotw.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box.

David Allison (referee)

I think your deletion argument is controversial and is against what I think the reading of the WP:BIO guideline would support at this point, so I removed the prod template. I think it would be a fine issue for AfD and would actually be a bit curious to see how that would come out if you're so inclined to nominate. Erechtheus 23:38, 28 June 2007 (UTC)

Hi. If I may say, your contention regarding notability of referees is somewhat at odds with Wikipedia's ethos, given the large number of existing articles on eminent names in the field. These do so happily, with the assistance of properly researched sources. Players in a soccer match undoubtedly affect the outcome and perceived controversy of certain major events. Referees share the same ability to determine our perceptions, given their vested authority during the matches. This potential to shape destinies makes them equally as notable in theory. The only proviso is the level at which they refereed (domestically, preferably Premier League status; internationally, preferably at least UEFA status). Thanks.

SafetyLit marked for deletion

SafetyLit is a Citation index -- a free service supported by the World Health Organization and by several US state and federal organizations. It contains no advertising. It is a service similar to PubMed (also free) and PsycINFO (a fee-based service). While PubMed has a bio-medicine focus and PsycINFO a behavioral focus, SafetyLit is multidisciplinary but selects articles of the many disciplines that are relevant to the issues of injury prevention and safety promotion. I suggest that including PsycINFO and the ISI Web of Science -- both commercial ventures -- makes the inclusion of SafetyLit appropriate by comparison.

I have noticed that while Wikipedia contains many in-depth articles on other disciplines, there are relatively few on the science of safety. There are few biographic articles about key researchers and engineers of the past 200 years who contributed to the field. I hope to fill this gap by contributing several articles over the next few weeks.

Way to go closing an AfD in bad faith by assuming its nominator was acting in bad faith. If you can point out any of my nominations that were in bad faith or deliberately disruptive then by all means do so, if not then please do not use this "fact" and the argument "well noone else voted delete" to speedily close an AfD Sploooshman 08:51, 1 July 2007 (UTC)

Enthusiasm is good, caution is better

I just came across you comment on Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/User:Aditya Kabir/monobook.js. Unfortunately you failed to understand the problem at all. The AfD was auto generated by a glitch in a Javascript tool which I removed immediately from my monobook page. This monobook page is what lies at the heart of your Wikipedia account and mine, too. God is merciful that you couldn't delete it. Next time think a bit before you try to speedy delete something. Anyways, the problem has been identified by the Admins and solved as well. Cheers.

I should also echo the fact that bringing a brand-new article to AfD isn't usually a good idea. Bull. That's absolutely nonsense, and should not have been included in your article close.

License tagging for Image:Countryweekly71607.jpg

Thanks for uploading Image:Countryweekly71607.jpg. Wikipedia gets thousands of images uploaded every day, and in order to verify that the images can be legally used on Wikipedia, the source and copyright status must be indicated. Images need to have an image tag applied to the image description page indicating the copyright status of the image. This uniform and easy-to-understand method of indicating the license status allows potential re-users of the images to know what they are allowed to do with the images.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

This is an automated notice by OrphanBot. If you need help on selecting a tag to use, or in adding the tag to the image description, feel free to post a message at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. 06:06, 8 July 2007 (UTC)
