119 (number)[edit]

Hi Anton

I hope you didn't see the rollback as offensive. I had little time to correspond yeterday and wanted to restore the astronomical data before forgetting.

My feeling is that any formally numbered information should be included here. As chemical numbers are deemed eligible, so therefore should numbered astronomical data such as Saros numbers and Messier/NGC notation. As a matter of fact, the reason I included these data is that I was searching for the Saros number related to last spring's lunar eclipse. I would be pleased to follow youyr suggestion and leave a suggestion with the Wikinumbers project.


Hi Anton -

Following is how I would like the guidelines to read. I've copypasted the standard guidelines for Number N and added (in bold) what I would add. Since I'm not a member of this committee and therefore feel hesitant about an ad hoc addition of these guidelines to the page, peerhaps I can prevail upon you as a committee member to do so. Thanks. These numbers are all standardized, and have been used for many decades to describe astonomical objects and phenomena.


Number N is also

The atomic number of elementium.
The atomic number of an element temporarily called LatinNumberium. (* If the element has not even been discovered, it should not even be mentioned. *) /br
The Messier Number of Object A
The NGC (New General Catalog) Number of Object A
The Saros Number of a solar (or lunar) eclipse series.
Considered lucky in Country A.
Considered unlucky in Country B.
Very important in Religion A's sacred texts. (* Better to let Wikipedians versed in theology decide which religious associations of a number ought to be included *)
The designation of Country A's Highway Route Number N, which runs from Point A to Point B. (* Only major highways need be included, unless they have achieved fame beyond their location. *)
The code for international direct dial phone calls to Country A.
The registry number of the USS/HMS/RMS ShipName, CVN-Number N. (* Only major ships, such as aircraft carriers and gigantic cruise liners need be included *)
In the expression "folksy expression with Number N".
In the title of the movie There's Something About Number N. (* Only major studio releases ought to be included. Include independent releases if they achieve fame comparable to a major studio release. *) In sport, the retired jersey number of legendary player Babe McGwire.

"Grand Self-Appointed Guardians of Wikipedia"[edit]

Now, that's trashy talk. Very unprofessional. We're all here to make Wikipedia better, and slinging this kind of mud around isn't helping anybody.

Urhixidur 01:04, 2005 Jan 24 (UTC)

It is far more unprofessional to express a prejudice in a brief edit summary. Your use of the word "icky" communicates prejudice far more powerfully than any longwinded rant of mine.
Anton Mravcek 17:58, 24 Jan 2005 (UTC)
I admit the choice of term was unfortunate. Summary edits were never meant to be anything but light-hearted comments, I thought. I'm sorry if it offended you so mightily.
Urhixidur 23:52, 2005 Jan 24 (UTC)


Hi, Anton. As a native English speaker can you, please, see Talk:Slovenians and say a few words about those matters. I would be very grateful for any help since we collaborate so long in Slovene wikipedia. I am a little bit sad because some users are not respecting works and contributions of other users. As I see, you are also using a term "Slovene" instead of 'Slovenian' as a native speaker :-) Best regards. --xJaM 00:11, 9 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Thank you Anton for your fast reply. I have decided to use those 'preferred' terms, which are propagated by BT2 and some other users (Nohat, ~) just for the sake of the order here and not because they persuaded me. I can say also that they do not respect naming conventions as many articles were at first written using term "Slovene". This was also some year before categories, so they also do not fit in this sheme. Best regards. --xJaM 19:14, 9 Jun 2005 (UTC)


You are right. I'm was just pissed off with my additions to that section being amended or deleted for their frivolity and their demanding a little from the reader. I must have forgotten that once I edit a page the text no longer belongs to me. I do think that that whole section is a bit ridiculous and have to restrain myself from posting an unbounded number of things in there. "One is 1/666 of the number if the Beast. One is half of two, and the ratio of one to the square root of two is the ratio between the lengths of the sides of a sheet of A4 paper. One is the number of thumbs on an average hand ..." where does one stop?

I think a good rule of thumb is: if this tidbit that is true of the number 1 was true of some other integer, would it be worth mentioning at the article on that integer?
These issues need to be discussed more thoroughly at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Numbers. Anton Mravcek 22:41, 3 August 2005 (UTC)

Miles O'Brien[edit]

The journalist Miles O'Brien hosts American Morning on CNN, one of CNN's flagship shows. Internationally, CNN is still the #1 news network. Respectfully, Star Trek cannot even keep strong enough ratings to stay on the air. As for Homer Simpson, The Simpsons have won multiple emmy awards and are the most recognizable cartoon in television history. Miles O'Brien the journalist is more known (and real) than a character from a syndicated TV show that has been off the air for years. Now, I realize this is the internet where all sci-fi is universally beloved and worshipped, but this is an academic website...the CNN journalist is much more important. BigGuy219 19 August 2005

At point during the fun little move war you two had, you moved several pages via cut-and-paste. The mess you left behind was quit complicated - the history of "Miles O'Brien (journalist)" was half there, and half under "Miles O'Brien (Star Trek)", and the history of "Miles O'Brien (Star Trek)" was half there, and half under "Miles O'Brien (Star Trek character)". After an hour or so of work, I have cleaned this all up. Never, ever, ever move a page via cut-and-paste. If the "Move this page" button does not work, use WP:RM. Noel (talk) 16:31, 9 September 2005 (UTC)

Spartacus or Sabre Dance?[edit]

Did you watch the latest Family Guy episode, "Peterotica"? If so, could you check the title of the music referenced? Thanks in advance. Cromulent Kwyjibo 22:55, 27 April 2006 (UTC)

No, I haven't. I'll get back to you when they rerun it. Anton Mravcek 22:39, 1 May 2006 (UTC)


Sorry for my lack of knowledge in these matters. It was all due to unfortunate coincidences, since i took the bolded wordy form of subsection starters from 121 (number) and the capital M in maths from 182 (number)... :-s -- Jokes Free4Me 21:39, 16 May 2006 (UTC)

That's OK. If you're not entirely certain something's right, odds are someone will correct it and you can learn from that. In case of a disagreement, you can consult WP:NUM. Anton Mravcek 19:30, 17 May 2006 (UTC)

Come and See reply[edit]

Yes, there was some speculation... but it was speculation based upon a reasonable extrapolation. Furthermore, he also deleted a valid rating from Finland (K-16) along with everything else. I think it would be the lesser evil to keep the paragraph, although perhaps it could be reworded... or moved to its own section. I still believe that the primary purpose of Wikipedia should be to provide usefull information rather than abide by its own rules. Of course, those rules usually work to this end, but in cases where they don't it's best to try to work our way around them if possible. As I said, if you feel that the section can be reworded to better comply with wiki policy, please do so. Esn 21:42, 1 June 2006 (UTC)

Symphony No. 3 (Górecki)[edit]

Hi Anton, thanks for your instructive comment on the gorecki merge proposal - it was an error on my behalf i'm afraid, one of thoes late at night edits. I've since redirected the 'Symphony of Sorrowful Songs' article, aming to add Symphony no 2 and Miserere aricles shortly. Coil00 01:13, 17 June 2006 (UTC)

Excellent. I look forward to the article on the "Kopernikowska." Anton Mravcek 17:59, 17 June 2006 (UTC)


Perhaps you could help with Compositions for solo instruments, an orphaned article. Volunteer Sibelius Salesman 19:12, 20 July 2006 (UTC)

I'll see what I can do. No promises. Anton Mravcek 16:19, 21 July 2006 (UTC)

Number information request[edit]

Hi Anton. I noticed that you added the number infobox to 9814072356 (number) and I was wondering if you could please fill out the number inforbox at 144000 (number). Thanks! — Reinyday, 16:12, 22 July 2006 (UTC)

  • Nevermind, someone else did it. Have a great day! — Reinyday, 23:30, 22 July 2006 (UTC)


Do you know anything about František Václav Míča? Plinth molecular gathered 22:16, 15 August 2006 (UTC)

Not a thing. I'll put that article on my watchlist and look up the name in the New Grove. I can't promise anything more than that. Anton Mravcek 21:12, 16 August 2006 (UTC)

B flat etc.[edit]

No, I didn't discuss it with anyone else. In my experience, sharp or flat notes are almost always written "A flat", "G sharp", etc. I have loads of classical CDs and a fair amount of piano manuscript music, and hardly any of it places a hyphen between the letter and the word "sharp" or "flat" (or "natural", for that matter). I assumed that one person had written the articles using a less common variant that he or she considered to be the best option. Do you prefer the insertion of the hyphen? DTOx 17:51, 26 September 2006 (UTC)


Actually, I think the change is that sequences which are referenced more by other sequences are given higher weight. That's the "273" under the "+20" on the right of OEISA000027. CRGreathouse (t | c) 20:23, 3 October 2006 (UTC)

Oh, so that's what that means. Thanks. I'm gonna have to reread the OEIS FAQ, I suspect there might be other things that need to be updated in our article on it. Anton Mravcek 14:57, 5 October 2006 (UTC)

Finale screenshot[edit]

Thanks a ton for your new Finale screenshot; I loathe that horrid blue theme, especially for an OSX shot. SFT | Talk 19:07, 5 November 2006 (UTC)

Glad you liked it. Actually, I didn't realize there were different 'themes' available in Finale. I'd be happy if it placed "arco" indications in the parts closer to the measures it applies to without my having to drag each one of them. Anton Mravcek 19:11, 5 November 2006 (UTC)

Mathematics article grading[edit]

I noticed your comment on the importance rating given to Znám's problem, and I was wondering if you would want to help out with on-going project to grade mathematics articles? Have a look at Wikipedia:WikiProject Mathematics/Wikipedia 1.0 for details. Anyone can grade articles - there are no special requirements. Tompw 15:49, 20 November 2006 (UTC)

I would at least hope that whoever's grading importance knows at least a little something about the topic. I could help grade articles on various number theory topics, but I have no business grading articles about calc or trig. Anton Mravcek 17:32, 20 November 2006 (UTC)
Well, true enough, but the same applies to any article you edit. My poitn was that you odn't have to be an admin or go through any special selection process. Tompw 00:53, 21 November 2006 (UTC)

episode format[edit]

It was decided a few weeks ago in the discussions that the proper format when cleaning this pages up would be to alphabetize the categories, with the order cultural references, notes, trivia, then references 16:20, 28 November 2006 (UTC)

Can you provide a link to that discussion or are you just making it up? Thought so. Anton Mravcek 16:21, 28 November 2006 (UTC)

Yes, I was part of it as well, let me find the link, and I am a main editor Grande13

it was on one of the main wikipedia talk pages, but has since been cleaned up, but give me a few and I'll see if I can get you conversation Grande13 16:37, 28 November 2006 (UTC)
So an imaginary conversation is being held up as a guideline to laurel an anonymous user (some IP address) over a much more respectable logged-in user (Cromulent Kwyjibo) because of whom these articles exist in the first place? Sounds like the stuff of a dystopian science fiction story is made of. Gimme a break. ShutterBugTrekker 22:41, 28 November 2006 (UTC)


so what makes the current order you are putting things the correct way... Grande13 19:52, 29 November 2006 (UTC)

If you are so persistant on changing it to having notes first then maybe you should hold a group discussion on of the the talk pages, otherwise please change all 100 or so episodes and not just 20 or otherwise I'll revert the format to make sure there is one common format among all episodes Grande13 22:34, 29 November 2006 (UTC)

Mozart Symphony #37[edit]

Now that you've created all of these great new Michael Haydn symphony pages, it would be great if you could give Mozart's Symphony #37 its proper "Michael Haydn title" and add section in that article about how it used to be known as Mozart #37. I'm not enough of a Michael Haydn expert to do that. DavidRF 05:28, 14 February 2007 (UTC)

sparsely totient numbers[edit]

Thanks for letting me know someone else is looking at those pages. I update them very infrequently, but that article you edited should have disappeared from the list now. By the way, I have the script programmed to automatically not list the number articles, but there are quite a few of them that have no sources or external links sections.

AfD nomination of Ada Dietz[edit]

An editor has nominated Ada Dietz, 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/Ada Dietz 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.

Don't bother AFD'ing Lemon cellow, I've already redirected it to the proper title. Mak (talk) 18:31, 1 July 2007 (UTC)

How do you withdraw an AFD? Anton Mravcek 18:33, 1 July 2007 (UTC)
You close it. I'll see if I can find the templates, since you already created it. Mak (talk) 18:36, 1 July 2007 (UTC)

Dear Anton, yes of course. Genesis 25:17, Exodus 6:16-20. Erudil 15:28, 30 July 2007 (UTC) Erudil is from the Elvish languages invented by J.R.R. Tolkien. It means "One who loves God" ( Eru is God), corresponding to Theophilos, Amadeus, etc. Originally my Wikipedia handle was "Das Baz" but I had to change it due to reasons that are unclear, even to myself. Thanks for your interest!Erudil 15:19, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

Les Danaïdes[edit]

I added some recordings that I found via Google, and an OOP one in an opera book, if it's of interest to you :-) Lethe 10:02, 7 August 2007 (UTC)

Yes it is. I was even willing to listen to it from a phonograph, so many thanks for digging up the CDs! Now I'll just cross my fingers before looking them up on Amazon. Thank you for finding them. Anton Mravcek 18:00, 7 August 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image (Image:Fin2006c ScreenShot.png)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Fin2006c ScreenShot.png. 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.

Merging Numbers to Num[edit]

If you were serious with that proposal, I'd be happy to help. --Kevin Murray 22:39, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

Yes, I was serious about that. I don't know if you know the extent to which I and the other WP:NUM have been talked down to, as if we were all a bunch of complete idiots who don't know anything about the infiniteness of numbers. Anything that honestly gets rid of condescension is appreciated. Anton Mravcek 22:43, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

OK. Anton Mravcek 15:57, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

In-universe tags[edit]

Hi, I wasn't the one that put the tags there, but I have placed in-universe tags on fictional subjects on wikipedia. The reason the tags are in place, not to dispute that the information in the article is fictional, that is known. What needs to be done is in-universe information needs to be trimmed down, and real-world information needs to be the primary point of the articles, i.e. casting information, character development (real-world, i.e. writing), critical commentary, reception, etc. This is the reason the tags are in place, these need to be the primary point of articles about fictional subjects. As long as the information that is in-universe is the primary subject of the article, it is tagged to bring to the attention of editors to please contribute to help clean the article up. Hope this clears things up about why they were tagged as such. There is a link on the tag to click on regarding the in-universe policy also, for further reference. Thank you. Ejfetters 16:10, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

But have you actually read the articles, or are you just assuming they lack real-world info? In at least one case, other users have tried to address this, but the tag gets slapped right back on. This tells me that the tagger (which you tell me is not you) doesn't care about Wikipedia, but merely about discrediting articles he doesn't like because he was unable to get them deleted. Anton Mravcek 16:14, 17 September 2007 (UTC)
  • Yes I have read the articles myself, some of them I didn't quite agree with the tagging, others I read and tagged myself. We aren't trying to get them deleted, we are trying as part of WikiProject Star Trek trying to get the articles up to a better standard, so they may be nominated for good article or featured article by the standards set forth for those articles. Currently, the Kira Nerys article has had good information added to it, but we still need more. I myself am researching real-world info about TNG characters to add to the articles, but I haven't added what I've found yet, trying to rework the articles before I do that. I don't remember any Star Trek character articles ever getting nominated for deletion, maybe I'm wrong. The tag doesn't nominate it for deletion, it simply draws attention to users, kinda saying, hey - we need some more info, if ya got it, please help us out. I myself am a big Trek fan, and don't want to see any of these get deleted, I want the articles to be so much better than they can be. Ejfetters 16:23, 17 September 2007 (UTC)
  • I've been one of several users to restore in-universe tags to the character articles. As far as I know, they've never been AfDed -- and I take perverse pleasure in running a lot of fiction-related material through the AfD process. But character, no. And, as I mentioned on another talk page, the in-universe tag is not meant to be disparaging; it's unfortunate that you interpret it as such. They serve to attract the attention of editors in a position to add needed information. For example, I don't have the DS9 companion or DVD commentaries, so I can't add a whole lot of production info. and other real-world information required by WP:FICT and WP:WAF -- but, other editors do, and I hope the flag draws their attention and focus. Similarly, the in-universe tags in a lot of Star Wars vehicle articles caught my eye; I took up the onus to improve them, and one is now tagged as a Good Article and I and other editors are working on making it a Featured Project. So, please don't interpret the in-universe tag as an attempt to criticize; rather, they are attempts to flag other editors' attention for improvement. --EEMeltonIV 16:27, 17 September 2007 (UTC)
  • On my talk page you've said the right words, but you haven't said the right words on the article talk page. The right words would be tailored to each specific article and would show that you have read each and every article you tagged. Because right now it just looks like you want to make sure those articles have some tag, any tag, that makes them look bad. Anton Mravcek 23:32, 17 September 2007 (UTC)
  • Well, please try to adhere to Wikipedia's "assume good faith" policy. I think your perception of why I or any editor puts a tag on an article is a minority and wholly off-base opinion. --EEMeltonIV 04:21, 18 September 2007 (UTC)
Actions speak louder than words, and right now, your actions make assuming good faith exceedingly difficult (or perhaps you've meant it as some kind of test from the beginning?). Anyway, responsible tagging is not something I invented, though maybe I did come up with the name. The concept has been around as long as tags have, along with the awareness that tags can be abused. Anton Mravcek 22:27, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

Note about Worf[edit]

Hi Anton Mravcek, there's a note here about the slow edit-war over reverting to a stub version.--chaser - t 06:27, 7 October 2007 (UTC)

D minor[edit]

Always subject to debate of course but-- (and I am enough of a Brian fan to have heard all of his symphonies, a few in several performances (the wonderful no. 2 in three, I think), both concertos and the concerto for orchestra, one of his operas- only one so far- among other works- multiple times in many cases and looking forward to hearing more- not enjoying all of them, but many!...- to attempt to establish at too much length, I hope that it is not subjective judgment that colors my thought here (protesting too much I guess.) )- removing Mahler 3 before removing the Gothic? :) I'm not at all sure I'd remove the Gothic either, with you there... and thank you for beginning to pare the list. Schissel | Sound the Note! 21:55, 18 November 2007 (UTC)

It's possible I may have gone a little bit too far with that one. After all, both Mahler 3 and the Gothic have appeared in the Guinness Book of World Records. I stand by the other removals. Anton Mravcek (talk) 21:30, 21 November 2007 (UTC)

piccolo in Michael Haydn's symphonies[edit]

Hello. Someone is asking on the talk page for Symphony No. 5 (Beethoven) about the use of piccolo in Michael Haydn's symphonies. I figured you would be one of the best people to handle that question. Cheers. DavidRF (talk) 22:10, 21 November 2007 (UTC)

The truth is stranger than fiction: Michael Haydn never used piccolo, but he did use clarinet once. I'm confident that the Cambridge music guide on Beethoven's Fifth will provide us the name of the right composer using piccolo before Beethoven. Anton Mravcek (talk) 20:09, 24 November 2007 (UTC)

List of works by key[edit]

Hi, I have opened an RfC at Talk:B-flat minor#RfC on lists of pieces to discuss if we actually need these lists. I thought you might be interested. Torc2 (talk) 19:46, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

Symphony No. 1[edit]

I wholly agree with you, piping should be used to make Wikipedia read more like proper English than Fortran, but many decisions made early on by people who don't realize there's a difference between a computer language and a natural language still plague us. It's policy not to pipe on disambiguation pages — never mind that doing so would make it read more like a lexicon than a computer manual — and who are mere mortals like you and me to question policy ? Illegitimi non carborundum.Robert Greer (talk) 18:37, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

Sometimes you have to take policies on a case by case basis. "Symphony No. 1 (Beethoven) written by Ludwig van Beethoven" reads kinda dumb, in my opinion, in part because it contains redundance, so I went ahead and changed it. I would probably leave alone something like "The Return (2006 film) directed by Asif Kapadia." Anton Mravcek (talk) 17:36, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

George Alexander Albrecht[edit]

Unfortunately I don't :( The main reason I made the stub was that the German WP seemed to find him worth a detailed article on, I was planning on translating some of that but it proved difficult. Lethesl 23:59, 19 May 2008 (UTC)

Bruckner pictures[edit]

Hi, Anton ! I see you replaced the Bruckner photo with pictures of him as a somewhat younger man. That's fine by me, but what was the problem with the older Bruckner picture ? Regards, MUSIKVEREIN (talk) 20:21, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

Point well taken, Anton. Thanks ! Regards, MUSIKVEREIN (talk) 20:56, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

New Bruckner images -- could we get higher resolutions?[edit]

I appreciate the value of having images that reflect Bruckner's age when he began to work on each symphony. However, I am having issues with the quality of the images: they are generally of too low a resolution to look good on a full-size monitor (at least for me). I've reverted the most extreme case (8th symphony), but I see the problem in varying degrees with the other new images used in symphonies 1-7. If we could find higher-resolution versions of these images it would fix the problem. I don't know whether I have some specific browser setting that's causing this issue but all other images on Wikipedia generally (including the older Bruckner image) look fine to me. I've included the 8th symphony image below. Cheers. Grover cleveland (talk) 02:53, 5 June 2008 (UTC)


The way you've put that picture on my talk page it does look all JPEG artifacty and crap. In fact, I would scan it myself, but oddly enough, of the four Bruckner books I have checked out from the library, that picture is in none of them... Anton Mravcek (talk) 14:11, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
Hi Anton, The image you placed on my talk page looks fine. Please feel free to replace that in the 8th symphony page. Cheers, Grover cleveland (talk) 17:58, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

Source for Kent Kennan quote?[edit]

Do you have a source for the Kent Kennan quote about Wagner tubas: "they are really modified horns"? I wasn't able to find one online. WeisheitSuchen (talk) 19:58, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

Your edit to Ł‎[edit]

Good job merging the short sections. I hadn't thought of that before, but it really does look a lot better now. —Politizertalk • contribs ) 23:07, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

Thanks, glad you liked it. Anton Mravcek (talk) 22:40, 7 October 2008 (UTC)

Family Guy[edit]

Do not change "Baby on Board" from a redirect to a page without a description! If you look, the MSN site has no description of the plot of the episode! Also, this edit summary, "Blind! The reference was right there!" is not constructive. CTJF83Talk 17:47, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

OK, you win, I stand defeated. I will never again edit the article about the Family Guy episode titled "Baby on Board." I swear. But I might edit articles about Family Guy episodes with similar titles that have a word more or a word fewer. Anton Mravcek (talk) 22:51, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

After investigating a report at Wikipedia:Requests_for_checkuser/Case/PrimeFan, I have come to the conclusion that this account, along with a large number of other accounts, are all being operated by the same person as abusive sockpuppets. Operating multiple accounts is not permitted when they are used to edit the same articles and debates. However, due to the nature of the IP addresses involved, it is possible that some of these users have coincidentally shared a computer or IP address. If this is the case, you may request to be unblocked by emailing the blocking admin or the unblock mailing list with your official University email address. This is to prevent one person from spoofing the admins with multiple free throwaway email accounts such as gmail or yahoomail. (Your email address will not be stored or used other than for verification.) If this is a misunderstanding I apologize in advance, and your account will be unblocked as soon as you provide proof that you are a separate individual. Be advised two checkusers examined this case and agreed on the results. RlevseTalk 02:58, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Vienna Symphonic Library[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Vienna Symphonic Library 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 clear 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. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

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, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page 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 page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.
