Moved your user page[edit]

Hey there. I noticed you created a user page at User:Amfilmsinc. That's great, but unfortunately case matters, and since your user name is AMFilmsInc, I moved your user page to User:AMFilmsInc, where it belongs. Enjoy! Jhinman 00:34, 15 February 2007 (UTC)


A tag has been placed on Robert benfer, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article is a repost of material that was previously deleted following a deletion debate, such as articles for deletion. If you can indicate how Robert benfer is different from the previously posted material, or if you can indicate why this article should not be deleted, I advise you to place the template {{hangon}} underneath the other template on the article, and also put a note on Talk:Robert benfer saying why this article should stay. An admin should check for such edits before deleting the article. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Please read our criteria for speedy deletion, particularly item 4 under General criteria. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. We welcome your help in trying to improve Wikipedia, and we ask you to follow these instructions.--Fuhghettaboutit 04:48, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

Please see my post at the article's talk page. To answer your questions, please read our notability guidelines for people, and note that notability is not a determination of worth or fame or interest but generally whether the person has been the subject of non-trivial treatment in multiple reliable sources that are independent of the subject (which excludes Robert Benfer's writing about himself). Please also note that the fact that some other article is on Wikipedia is not a good argument for keeping another article. Please see Wikipedia:Arguments to avoid in deletion discussions#What about article x?.--Fuhghettaboutit 06:39, 18 February 2007 (UTC)
I am not an administrator and I did not delete it. The article was tagged for speedy deletion by me as a repost, as noted above, which means it could be deleted at any time (as opposed to the process at Wikipedia:Articles for Deletion, where deletion is only done after formal debate). In this case, the deleting administrator speedy deleted the article (deletion log entry) not as a repost, but under another ground: Criteria for speedy deletion A7, which is for articles on people, groups, companies and web content that do not assert the notability of the subject. From my memory of the article, I think there was an assertion of notability, though it's hard to remember exactly what it said, but I do think it could have been speedily deleted as a respost, as I originally tagged it. You can contact the administrator here. Please note that posts on talk pages go at the bottom of the page, and please sign your post by typing four tildes (~~~~) which automatically becomes your signature when you save (cross-posted from my talk page).--Fuhghettaboutit 15:12, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

License tagging for Image:Knoxbenfer.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Knoxbenfer.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. 05:08, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

Jason Steele[edit]

If you feel Steele is notable enough to stay, make a case for him. An AfD listing does not immediately equal deletion - it's a call for discussion. And for the record, insulting others (the Nazi comment) is immature and probably not going to win you any converts. MikeWazowski 17:42, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

adoption offer[edit]

Hi AMFilmsInc, I see you are looking for adoption. Drop me a note on my talk page and tell me your interests on WP and what help you are looking for. If you are no longer interested in adoption you could remove the 'adoption' box from your user page. Thanks!--killing sparrows (chirp!) 05:24, 27 April 2007 (UTC)

adoption stuff[edit]

Hi there AMFilmsInc, Yes, I would be glad to adopt you. I have changed the box on your user page to show you are now adopted.

I did an analysis of your edits on Wikipedia to get an idea of your history here and your areas of interest and will give you some comments on that first.

Your interests are mostly music and gaming and I see you have already made a few contributions in those areas, thanks! Even small things help add to the project.

I see you also reverted some vandalism to the Lance Armstrong article, very good. You can also go to the talk page of the person who did the vandalism and leave them a warning, the page to read to learn about reverting vandalism is WP:VANDAL, it tells you how to revert or remove vandalism and also how to leave a warning on the user's talk page. If you leave a warning and they continue to vandalize, an admin can then block them later on. I see you also made a few inappropriate edits early on but none since then so no big deal.

You need to get in the habit of adding an Help:Edit summary whenever you edit a page. Even putting 'fixed typo,' or 'reply' is helpful. The 'Edit summary' page above will explain more about why this is important.

You asked about notability for new articles. The page you need to read is WP:NOTE that spells out in detail what Wikipedia considers notable for different subjects, it is different for new bands or schools or porn stars, but the basic requirement is that there are published, independent sources for proof of notability. As an example, a review in a music magazine would be a good source for a new band but a blog about music would probably not be. IMDB is not usually considered a reliable, independent source because anyone can edit there (also one reason Wikipedia is not considered a reliable source), so I could go there and say, "AMFilms is the greatest movie production company in the world because they have the best directors and all their flicks have hot babes with big tits." Maybe its true, but how do we know for sure? Now if Variety or Newsweek say the same thing I would probably believe it. See the difference? If you have a specific person or topic in mind with your notability question, let me know and I will be able to give you better advice.

As far as finding out if what you want to add to the page is already on the page without reading the page, nope, sorry, there is really no way. You just have to read it.

One more thing, I will probably answer most of your questions by having you first read the WP policy about that particular issue, there is really no other way to learn how things work here. I learned alot by hanging out at WP:AFD because the people !voting on the various articles being considered for deletion quote and refer to the applicable policies. Look at the articles then look at the arguments for and against deletion and you will quickly see what is and is not notable.

One other thing, when you post on a talk page that already has conversations on it, use the '+' tab rather than the 'edit' tab so that your comments are added to the bottom of the page. This keeps things in chronological order and is less confusing.

Alrighty then, if any of this is not clear or if you have other questions or want to give me the subject of an article you are considering writing, let me know. I have a special page for adoption talk here, put it on your watch list and post any questions that you want to ask me on that page rather than my regular talk page. I am putting a copy of this message there also--killing sparrows (chirp!) 00:21, 30 April 2007 (UTC)

Wikibreak notice[edit]

Hi there AMF,

I will be on break for a week while travelling to Saint Paul Island, Alaska. I hope all is going well! If you need help while I am offwiki please go to the WP:ADOPT talk page. Cheers!--killing sparrows (chirp!) 18:07, 5 June 2007 (UTC)


Well, it's not a vacation, I work up there from June to the beginning of November. I am the Quality Control and Health and Safety person for a fish processing plant. We do halibut from June to October, and then king crab for a month. If you have seen the show, Deadliest Catch, we are one of the two places the boats bring their crab to for processing. After king crab we have about 6 weeks off and then return for snow crab season, which lasts about 6 weeks. Then it's off to Nepal!

It's really a great job as I don't have to gut fish or any of the other slimy jobs, plus I get the rest of the year off to travel and play! Saint Paul Island, Alaska is also the breeding ground of the Northern fur seal and by July there will be more than 1/2 million fur seals on the beaches in addition to several million sea birds (puffins, etc.), and in past years I have seen walrus, sea lions and orcas, although they are much rarer. The island is a rather weird place, very isolated, only 1 grocery store and 1 bar. Very expensive as everything has to be either shipped in by freighter (lead time is 6-8 weeks) or flown in. All the people working the plant get free room and board so I save nearly all the money I make, minus what I spend at the bar! Beers are $6.00 a bottle! but I usually win enough playing pool to pay for my evening.

We have wireless network at the plant so I will still be doing Wilipedia, although mostly in the evenings so I will still be available for any questions you have. I will be adding pictures that I take of the fur seals, seabirds, etc. The top picture on the Saint Paul Island, Alaska page is one that I took, click to see the enlarged version, it's pretty good.--killing sparrows (chirp!) 02:08, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Sgt. Pepper image on your userpage[edit]

I noticed you're using the cover for the Sgt. Pepper album on your userpage. Unfortunately, our image policy does not permit this. A link to the article is fine, and so is an inline link to the image. (Inline image links are formatted as [[:Image:Pepper's.jpg]]; note the colon at the beginning.) Per WP:NFCC#9, fair use images may only be used in articles, not user pages. I'll give you a few days to remove the image yourself, and if this is not done I'll have to remove it. If you have any questions or concerns, please leave a message on my talk page. szyslak 22:20, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

Fair use images are never acceptable in userspace, and that includes userboxes. The Abbey Road box uses a photograph of the crosswalk, not the actual album cover. And the Netscape box contains a generic "N" on a background, not the actual copyrighted Netscape logo. szyslak 21:54, 13 November 2007 (UTC)

Image tagging for Image:PibbXtra.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:PibbXtra.png. You don't seem to have said where the image came from or who created it. We requires this information to verify that the image is legally usable on Wikipedia, and because most image licenses require giving credit to the image's creator.

To add this information, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the information to the image's description. If you need help, post your question on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions.

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

Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 02:07, 2 January 2008 (UTC)


I've reverted what i assume was vandalism on your userpage; you might want to redo your "what i do" section which i had to blank (since it read "fap fap fap..." and so on). Ironholds 01:03, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, it was a good faith edit; i'll "leave your userpage alone". I'd like to point out that, regardless of whether that's done with your permission, it could be considered offensive for anyone passing through, so you might want to have a quiet word with said "friends".
