DEISA[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of DEISA, and it appears to be a substantial copy of https://www.deisa.eu. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material; such additions will be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details.

This message was placed automatically, and it is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article and it would be appreciated if you could drop a note on the maintainer's talk page. CorenSearchBot (talk) 13:50, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of DEISA[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on DEISA requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words.

If the external website belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Speedy deletion of DEISA Benchmark Suite[edit]

A tag has been placed on DEISA Benchmark Suite, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be blatant advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become an encyclopedia article. Please read the guidelines on spam as well as Wikipedia:FAQ/Business for more information.

DEISA[edit]

Hello. I took a cursory look at the new version. The copyright concerns have definitely been alleviated but the article could both be expanded and cleaned up.

  • One of the problems is that of course you're involved with the project so it's a bit difficult for you to write completely objectively about it (see this important guideline). If DEISA was a commercial venture I'd probably ask you to stop writing the article altogether. DEISA isn't a business but the article (as well as the one on the benchmark suite) still needs to steer away from advocacy or publicity. Phrases like "world-leading", "tightly couples", "we also maintain" and so on are definitely problematic. Note that I'm also going to merge the two articles which should be a benefit for both. (so this is the part about the cleanup)
  • It would be nice if you can expand the article in a few directions. For instance, what are DEISA's equivalents and competitors in other countries/continents? What is DEISA's budget? How many researchers are involved? What have they accomplished and what's next on their list? The other important thing is to start relying on third-party coverage of the project. Official releases from the project or its principal partners cannot be expected to be entirely objective but DEISA has received coverage in third-party publications which have a better critical distance.

Let me know if you have further questions. Pascal.Tesson (talk) 19:25, 30 January 2009 (UTC)
