Look at this page when you edit it, and see what I do. Just copy it.  ;D
Oh, and you don't need the "br" things..that just makes an indent.

Notability of Cinema Strange[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Cinema Strange requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article appears to be about a real person, organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable. If this is the first page that you have created, then you should read the guide to writing your first article.

If you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the article (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article 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 article that would confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. andy (talk) 10:04, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

AfD nomination of VulGarrity[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

I have nominated VulGarrity, an article you created, for deletion. I do not feel that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/VulGarrity. Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time. Do you want to opt out of receiving this notice? Madcoverboy (talk) 17:49, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

A consensus was reached to have to article deleted as per notability guidelines. As a result, I've moved the article to User:Blindeffigy/VulGarrity if you want to make changes and resumit the article. –BuickCenturyDriver 12:18, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Amanda2.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Amanda2.jpg. You've indicated that the image meets Wikipedia's criteria for non-free content, but there is no explanation of why it meets those criteria. Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. If you have any questions, please post them at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions.

Thank you for your cooperation. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page. STBotI (talk) 11:17, 19 September 2008 (UTC)

Welcome to the LGBT WikiProject![edit]

Drawing-Gay flag.png

Hi, Blindeffigy, welcome to WikiProject LGBT Studies!

We are a growing community of Wikipedia editors dedicated to identifying, categorizing, and improving articles regarding lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) and intersex people. LGBT Studies covers people, culture, history, and related subjects concerning sexual identity and gender identity - this covers a lot of ground and your help is appreciated! Some points that may be helpful:

  • Our main aim is to help improve articles, so if someone seeks help, please try to assist if you are able. Likewise feel free to ask for help, advice or clarification.
  • Many important discussions take place on the project's main discussion page; it is highly recommended that you watchlist it.
  • If you have another language besides English, please consider adding yourself to our translation section, to help us improve our foreign LGBT topics.
  • The project has several ongoing and developing activities, such as article quality assessment, peer review and a project-wide article collaboration, all of which you are welcome to take part in. We also have a unique program to improve our lower quality articles, Jumpaclass, so please consider signing up there.
  • If you're going to stay awhile, please create a square in our project quilt! You can put anything you want in it.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask on the talk page, and we will be happy to help you.

Personal attacks[edit]

Since you've been around a while, I won't template you. In this edit, although I agree with your basic point, I disagree with the tone. You might want to review WP:NPA. I'd hate to see you get blocked for stepping over the line while making a legitimate point. Just a thought. Thanks. Ward3001 (talk) 16:08, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

I don't take the internet seriously. I don't care about bullshit rules on a website, because they don't matter at all. There are some things I will follow just out of respect, but when I see pure & utter bullshit..I call it. Thank you though, but I really don't care. =] Blindeffigy (talk) 06:48, 20 November 2008 (UTC)
And whether or not you care about something is your business alone unless you make it someone else's business. Personal attacks make it the business of the entire Wikipedia community, and if you keep it up you inevitably will be blocked, perhaps for permanently if it gets bad enough. Your "I don't care" bravado won't change that. The choice is yours. Ward3001 (talk) 16:25, 20 November 2008 (UTC)
Don't tell me how to act, please: I respect that. Apologies for bothering you. Ward3001 (talk) 01:05, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

Main Page redesign[edit]

The Main Page Redesign proposal is currently conducting a straw poll to select five new designs, before an RFC in which one will be proposed to replace the Main Page. The poll closes on October 31st. Your input would be hugely appreciated! Many thanks, PretzelsTalk! 10:13, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with File:NLEffigy.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:NLEffigy.jpg. You've indicated that the image is being used under a claim of fair use, but you have not provided an adequate explanation for why it meets Wikipedia's requirements for such images. In particular, for each page the image is used on, the image must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Can you please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for each article the image is used in.
  • That every article it is used on is linked to from its description page.

This is an automated notice by FairuseBot. For assistance on the image use policy, see Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. --FairuseBot (talk) 18:31, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

NFL Draft prospects[edit]

Sorry for removing the deletion tag. I should have added the hangon.--Yankees10 01:36, 24 April 2010 (UTC)


Thank you for your work patrolling articles, but Muhammad Sahimi makes some assertion of notability (held a chair at a major university), and I do not think it is eligible for CSD#A7. Please also remember to notify the creator when you nominate an article for speedy deletion; Twinkle and other semi-automated tools simplify this. If you cannot find evidence that he passes WP:PROF, please feel free to prod the article instead. Regards, - 2/0 (cont.) 04:33, 24 April 2010 (UTC)

October 2010[edit]

Information.svgThank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. Regarding your edits to Amanda Palmer, it is recommended that you use the preview button before you save; this helps you find any errors you have made, reduces edit conflicts, and prevents clogging up recent changes and the page history. Thank you. me_and 09:34, 27 October 2010 (UTC)


FYI - I have started a new article, Disappearance of Kyron Horman, which you may be interested in since you voted to keep Kyron Horman in the last AfD. I believe that an article about the event itself would not fail WP:BLP1E like the original biographical article on the victim did. There is a ton of coverage, so sources are not a problem. Feel free to add to the article if you like. Thanks! SnottyWong yak 23:21, 1 February 2011 (UTC)

Tressa Thompson[edit]

Hi there. You added the categories 'LGBT sportspeople from the United States' and 'Lesbian sportspeople' to this article. I have removed them, as they were not supported by the reliable sources; indeed, one of the sources specifically quotes her as saying she does not identify as lesbian. This article is a biography of a living person, and as such poorly sourced controversial content isn't permitted; sexuality is one of those areas we have to be particularly careful over. In general, the rule is that an article on a living person must not be put in a sexuality-based category unless that person has specifically and publicly stated their sexuality in that way, and there are reliable sources to show it. You don't seem to have edited recently, but if you ever come back, please bear that in mind in future. Robofish (talk) 22:10, 25 March 2011 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Pride 2014[edit]

Hi Blindeffigy. In case you are not aware, there is an upcoming campaign to improve coverage of LGBT-related topics on Wikipedia, culminating with an international edit-a-thon on June 21. See Wiki Loves Pride 2014 for more information. If you are interested, you might consider creating a page for a major city (or cities!) near you, with a list of LGBT-related articles that need to be created or improved. This would be a tremendous help to Wikipedia and coverage of LGBT culture and history. Thanks for your consideration, and please let me know if you have any questions! --Another Believer (Talk) 16:27, 9 May 2014 (UTC)
