Proposed deletion of Arthur Papadimitriou[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Arthur Papadimitriou has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Non-notable museum donor.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

COI[edit]

Hello Arthur69papp. We welcome your contributions to Wikipedia, but if you are affiliated with some of the people, places or things you have written about in the article Arthur Papadimitriou, you may have a conflict of interest or close connection to the subject.

All editors are required to comply with Wikipedia's neutral point of view content policy. People who are very close to a subject often have a distorted view of it, which may cause them to inadvertently edit in ways that make the article either too flattering or too disparaging. People with a close connection to a subject are not absolutely prohibited from editing about that subject, but they need to be especially careful about following the reliable sources and writing with as little bias as possible.

If you are very close to a subject, here are some ways you can reduce the risk of problems:

  • Avoid or exercise great caution when editing or creating articles related to you, your organization, or its competitors, as well as projects and products they are involved with.
  • Be cautious about deletion discussions. Everyone is welcome to provide information about independent sources in deletion discussions, but avoid advocating for deletion of articles about your competitors.
  • Avoid linking to the Wikipedia article or website of your organization in other articles (see Wikipedia:Spam).
  • Exercise great caution so that you do not accidentally breach Wikipedia's content policies.

Please familiarize yourself with relevant content policies and guidelines, especially those pertaining to neutral point of view, verifiability of information, and autobiographies.

For information on how to contribute to Wikipedia when you have a conflict of interest, please see our frequently asked questions for organizations. Thank you. JamesBWatson (talk) 11:45, 5 February 2012 (UTC)

Deletion[edit]

The article Arthur Papadimitriou has been deleted under Wikipedia's criteria for speedy deletion. There were two reasons for this: the article was largely promotional in character, and it consisted largely of content copied from other web sites, in blatant violation of copyright. I should also mention that, even were the article to be rewritten to avoid these two issues, I am by no means convinced that it would survive undeleted, as it is doubtful that its subject satisfies Wikipedia's notability criteria.

Thanks for your message on my talk page. I have given an answer there. I am also posting you a (somewhat belated) "welcome message", as you can see. I hope that some of the links it contains will help you. I don't suggest trying to read and digest all the content of all of them before you do anything else: there is far too much material there. However, I do suggest having a look at the ones which seem most likely to be relevant. I certainly recommend a look at the guideline on notability. JamesBWatson (talk) 08:17, 13 February 2012 (UTC)

Copyright infringement[edit]

The page Arthur Papadimitriou was deleted because it was cited as not a 'noticle donor'. I beg to differ....this notible person should not have been deleted. Donating art to major art galleries in Austalia and Europe. Please reinstate.

Regarding the above comment which you left at Talk:Arthur Papadimitriou, you might like to read the Deletion notification earlier on this talk page as well as the page logs for the Arthur Papadimitriou article, both of which make clear that your article was deleted on the grounds of being a copyright infringement.
