I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Though we all make goofy mistakes, here is what Wikipedia is not. If you have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to see the help pages or add a question to the village pump. The Community Portal can also be very useful.

The Moment[edit]

As it stands, this article clearly needs to get split into two articles. I'd have done this if not for uncertainty about the appropriate titles. One could be called "The Moment (album)", but I'm not sure about the other. Probably neither could be considered the "main" meaning of the phrase, so neither should be simply "The Moment". If that much is right, then "The Moment" should become a disambiguation page. Michael Hardy 01:31, 30 October 2006 (UTC)

In SUNRISE, there is still a reference to "The Moment" which now points to a Japanese CD, not related to Sunrises. When the term is mainstream, I will re-submit "The Moment" as the measurement of apex in the events (sunrise and sunset). Maybe I'll need to reference the books once they go to print and/or News-Weather services who start tracking The Moment. Tho it has been used since 2005, it certainly isnt mainstream, yet ... only Northern California and Fiji are using it, that I know of. There is no "promotion", in that noone profits from knowing when The Moment occurs, especially since few people agree to the actual timing.

Sorry,

The Moment and original research[edit]

I've removed your insertions about "The Moment" from Sunrise, Sunset, The Moment and related articles. This is not in any way a commentary on the merits of your ideas; however, the description you supplied makes it clear that you devised the concept of "The Moment" and are using Wikipedia to promote it. Unfortunately, a longstanding Wikipedia policy is that Wikipedia is not a publisher of original thought. There is a detailed explanation of this policy at Wikipedia:No original research. --Polonius 04:43, 30 October 2006 (UTC)

Response: In SUNRISE, there is still a reference to "The Moment" which now points to a Japanese CD, not related to Sunrises. When the term is mainstream, I will re-submit "The Moment" as the measurement of apex in the events (sunrise and sunset) ... tho I no longer have all the text used since it was deleted. Maybe I'll need to reference the books once they go to print and/or News-Weather services who start tracking The Moment. Tho it has been used since 2005, it certainly isnt mainstream, yet ... only Northern California and Fiji are using it, that I know of.

  • All the text you entered remains accessible in the histories of the Wikipedia pages you edited; here is your text from The Moment, for example. Since you say that the concept is in active use in Northern California and Fiji (which would most likely count as notable enough for inclusion -- there are certainly many more obscure things in Wikipedia), if you can supply corroborating evidence that satisfies the Wikipedia:Verifiability policy, it can be re-inserted. --22:25, 30 October 2006 (UTC)
    • Sorry -- that was me, but I mucked up signing it. --Polonius 22:26, 30 October 2006 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Docupoint[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Docupoint, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become an encyclopedia article. Please read the guidelines on spam as well as Wikipedia:FAQ/Business for more information. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag - if no such tag exists then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hangon tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, 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. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you. ialsoagree (talk) 20:13, 15 May 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Docupoint[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Docupoint requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about an organization or company, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for organizations and companies. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag - if no such tag exists then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hangon tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, 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.

Information.svg Please do not add promotional material to Wikipedia, as you did to Docupoint. While objective prose about products or services is acceptable, Wikipedia is not intended to be a vehicle for advertising or promotion. Thank you. ialsoagree (talk) 02:47, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Tank Rum[edit]

Hello Brad Bishop,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Tank Rum for deletion, because it seems to be promotional, rather than an encyclopedia article.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions.

Spamlinks[edit]

Please do not put advertising links into Wikipedia articles. They will be deleted and if you persist you will be blocked from editing. Cheers,· · · Peter (Southwood) (talk): 19:48, 4 December 2017 (UTC)
