Mexican song articles[edit]

Hi. I'm not sure these articles meet Wikipedia's requirements: (a) you don't cite any sources to show notability; (b) they just consist of the lyrics, but see WP:LYRICS; and (c) aren't the lyrics probably copyright? Regards, JohnCD (talk) 15:38, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

Hi, sorry I created La Malagueña before discovering Malagueña Salerosa which is the same song. About the copyright I do not think that lyrics of folk songs are copyrigthed (more than 70 years old)Alexmadon (talk) 15:43, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

  • I'm not an expert, but WP:LYRICS says "Copyright usually expires 70 years after the author's death". JohnCD (talk) 15:49, 5 October 2008 (UTC)
  • Ok, let's remove that page: I just added a REDIRECT from La Malagueña to Malagueña Salerosa as this song is also known as "La Malagueña". Thanks. Alexmadon (talk) 15:57, 5 October 2008 (UTC)
  • Yes, that's better. I see what that article does is provide links to the lyrics, so the copyright issue is someone else's problem. Regards, JohnCD (talk) 16:22, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

Comparison of photo sharing websites[edit]

Hi Alex, can you please leave edit summaries? I'm evaluating Atpic right now. Despite its fugliness, it has some unique features (e.g. image preload). Dandv (talk) 08:09, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

Hello, Alexmadon. You have new messages at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Atpic.
Message added 23:32, 23 October 2010 (UTC). You can remove this notice at any time by removing the {{Talkback}} or {{Tb}} template.


You say these sources mention Atpic - that merely establishes existence, which isn't in doubt. What we are looking for is a bit more in depth about Atpic, not a general 'you can use A, B, C, D' type thing. A magazine review of Atpic would probably mention the rivals, but would be primarily about Atpic. It should be independent, and for real safety, not an editable place like a forum, or written by someone that could be connected with Atpic, like in a blog unless the writer of the blog is themselves notable (and having an article on Wikipedia to prove it...). Press releases are out totally. This may not be easy to achieve for open source or otherwise non-commercial software or sites. This is a problem no-one's found a way round yet - how to separate the wheat from the chaff. Length of existence doesn't even help - there are probably things that have hung on for years without being used by more than about 10 people. Keep trying - there's no bar against coming back if this goes. Just make sure there are the required sources when you do. Salting is only used to prevent re-creation of particularly egregious articles - and that doesn't apply here. Good luck. I might even have a look at the place myself.
