Re: Vote for Deletion[edit]

Hi, B0sh. Thanks for leaving a message on my talk page. I'm not heavily involved with Votes for deletion, but I believe about 5 days after an entry is submitted, the votes are tallied, and if there is a concensus to delete, an admin deletes the article. As of today, I think majority of votes for Bosh is Keep. Regards, Sango123 20:45, July 20, 2005 (UTC)

3 Revert Rule[edit]

Please do not keep undoing other people's edits without discussing them first. This is considered impolite and unproductive. If you continue, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia under the three-revert rule, which states that nobody may revert an article to a previous version more than three times in 24 hours. Thank you. Note that the rule applies to any number of accounts or IP addresses created by the same person. -Splash 15:09, 21 July 2005 (UTC)

  • Yeah no problem, i wasnt aware of the rule until some1 pointed it out to me in the edit comments. I just throught it was harsh to write a new description before the orginal had been judged. I wont restored it anymore, especially under other accounts or ip' not trying to cheat, i just want to define something that i feel deserves defining.

Is there an approch where 2 definitions can exist?

Ok. You could try adding your definition to the 'new' page which effectively contains several meanings already (hence the term 'disambiguation page'). However, I think it may prove difficult to keep your text on the page...the most serious problem with the information you give is its lack of authoritative verifiability. -Splash 13:44, 22 July 2005 (UTC)

Image Tagging Image:Cleveland brown.jpg[edit]

Warning sign
This media may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:Cleveland brown.jpg. I notice the 'image' page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is therefore unclear. If you have not created this media yourself then you need to argue that we have the right to use the media on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the media yourself then you should also specify where you found it, i.e., in most cases link to the website where you got it, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the media also doesn't have a copyright tag then you must also add one. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then you can use {{GFDL-self}} to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media qualifies as fair use, please read fair use, and then use a tag such as {{Non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair_use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other media, please check that you have specified their source and copyright tagged them, too. 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. Note that any unsourced and untagged images will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Shyam (T/C) 10:24, 8 March 2006 (UTC)

Leighton Group[edit]

I am unsure whether the company profiled at Leighton Group reaches the notability level required by WP:CORP - I do remember getting a copyvio deleted that was a copy and paste job from their website (which I can't access at the moment), and it didn't strike me as all that notable. What was concerning me most is that another Leighton Group is the biggest construction company in Australia, active across much of East Asia, part of the Hochtief group (also containing the largest construction companies in the United States and Germany), and was at one stage going to construct the tallest structure ever built, the Solar Tower. That company certainly meets the notability guidelines of WP:CORP, and being, as far as I can see, the most important, largest and well-known company with that name, should probably be allocated the Leighton Group article. Might your article belong at Leighton Media instead? Then once the article on the Australian group is made, there could be a Leighton Group (disambiguation) page, linked to with a WP:HATNOTE from Leighton Group. Does that sound like a sensible arrangement? TheGrappler 20:54, 2 June 2006 (UTC)

Sorry im unsure or the correct way to respond to this so ill write here. I dont have any strong opinion on this. I added the page because i had an interview there and wanted to find out more about them on going toLeighton page someone else had already added a dusambig for the sunderland based leighton so i just added a page. --B0sh 13:57, 13 June 2006 (UTC)


A tag has been placed on QXL, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article seems to be blatant advertising which only promotes a company, product, group or service and which would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become an encyclopedia article. Please read the general criteria for speedy deletion, particularly item 11, as well as the guidelines on spam.

If you can indicate why the subject of this article is not blatant advertising, you may contest the tagging. To do this, please add {{hangon}} on the top of the page and leave a note on the article's talk page explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would help make it encyclopedic, as well as adding any citations from reliable sources to ensure that the article will be verifiable. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. DES (talk) 19:33, 27 April 2007 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
