Fair use rationale for Image:Macquarie Park Station Proposed.jpg

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading Image:Macquarie Park Station Proposed.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages 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 fair use images lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. JRG 13:02, 11 April 2007 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Sean Ashby

A tag has been placed on Sean Ashby, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done for the following reason:

Insufficient attempt at asserting notability, A7

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not meet very basic Wikipedia criteria may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as an appropriate article, and if you can indicate why the subject of this article is appropriate, you may contest the tagging. To do this, 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 confirm its subject's notability under the 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. Garrie 06:38, 20 April 2007 (UTC) s

aussieBum

Hi Bren, I replied at talk:aussieBum. —Moondyne 11:53, 26 April 2007 (UTC)

I note that you previously also created a now deleted article on the companies founder, Sean Ashby. Are you aware of our conflict of interest policy? To quote: "...if you have a conflict of interest, you should avoid or exercise great caution when: ... editing articles related to you, your organization, or its competitors, as well as projects and products they are involved with, ... Accounts used solely for abusing Wikipedia may be blocked indefinitely, as explained in Wikipedia:Blocking policy. Blatant self-promotion qualifies as abuse."Moondyne 11:59, 26 April 2007 (UTC)
I therefore withdraw the accusation of COI. It just seemed a bit of a coincidence that you'd create an article about a company as well as its founder - both you have to admit would only be marginally notable at best. My concerns about the company still stand and I await a 3rd party administrator to make a determination. —Moondyne 13:18, 26 April 2007 (UTC)

football teams

Hi Bren I noticed your articles on Australia based gridiron teams. Unfortunately, other than teams competeing at Olympic level or in fully professional leagues, sports teams are not automatically eligible for inclusion.

If you can provide multiple independent references with non-trivial mention of the teams then you have met the criteria for inclusion for "minor" sporting organisations. This is pretty much a shoe-in for Olympic and professional teams, hence they get a bit of a free run at having stubs created on the assumption that somebody has mentioned them in the press / published something about them in some other form.

I have "prodded" these articles for automatic deletion. You can remove the prod template, but if you do, please improve the article as I have discussed above. Garrie 05:57, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

City Rail deletion proposals

Hi, I saw the recent deletion proposals you made to DIM8020 and DET9216 I would recommend these simply be nominated for deletion. I don't think there is a strong reason to keep it proposed. Relevant information is pretty much already "merged" onto other articles like the appropriate "Set" and accident articles. Jpp42 02:08, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Well the articles have been up for a year and a half now. I don't think a few more days is gunna hurt. Just wanna make sure everyone else is happy with the deletion (though I agree I think it's highly unlikely). --Breno talk 07:30, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image (Image:AussieBumWP6.jpg)

Thanks for uploading Image:AussieBumWP6.jpg. 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. Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. User:Gay Cdn (talk) (Contr) 01:27, 9 June 2007 (UTC)

Mooroolbark Football Club

Oh by all means get rid of it. I only started it because a while ago, information about the club kept on popping up on the wikipedia entry no matter how many times I deleted it. It's not as if it's a significant or notable team by any means (at least outside of Mooroolbark ;-) )Benjysponder 09:10, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

I wasn't aware that "notable" restricted those eligible to they who have made positive contributions in their chosen endeavours. Would convicted pedophile Phillip Harold Bell (yes, an old boy) be more to your liking? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 203.51.65.230 (talk)

If you are referring to your edit [1] then no, I'm not looking for only the "good" people. Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, and we want encyclopedic, verifiable content in articles. I don't think "Enjoys watching "The Catch Up" and eating toasted cheese sandwiches." is appropriate. Thanks. --Breno talk 14:33, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

Image:EddieCibrian.jpg

Thanks for uploading Image:EddieCibrian.jpg. I notice the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed image could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this image is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the image description page and edit it to add {{Replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original Replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace the fair use image by finding a freely licensed image of its subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or a similar) image under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that any fair use images which are replaceable by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Jackofalltradesmasterofnone 12:25, 14 June 2007 (UTC)

Re: Merit (band)

It doesn't look as though it will pass the AfD, unfortunately. I'm sorry I put the wheels in motion. Do you have any additional references that would be helpful in re-creating the article if it doesn't pass? Not immediately, you know, but soon. Do they have anything planned coming up (a new record or tour)? And I found a number of mentions online referring to a quote from the Village Voice but couldn't find the original; do you have any idea where that came from (issue date, was it a gig review, CD, or what)? Again, I am truly sorry to have started the AfD. Closenplay 01:21, 17 June 2007 (UTC)

Hey mate no hard feelings. I generally don't get into band articles here because I know what kind of issues they cause. Seems like this one could go either way, and if it does get though, I do understand that it's just scraping in. The band does have some great reviews from publishers on their site, however I can't find them when doing online searches to cite.
I'd love to keep the article here but as it hasn't received a lot of contribs from others I guess I'm on my own. Anyway, the band does have a good following on myspace and reverbnation so they are getting their music out on other channels.
Btw can you review another band for me; Render (band). I put this up but a while ago, but now that I'm into Wiki more and understand the inclusion policies better I think it should go. Satisy the deletionist in us all ;) --Breno talk 06:31, 17 June 2007 (UTC)
Rather than list it for AfD, I stuck a notability tag on it (which, in retrospect, is what I should have done with the Merit article). Either someone will improve it, or it will get deleted (eventually). Cheers! Closenplay 17:16, 18 June 2007 (UTC)

Hey, thanks for the barnstar! Those AfDs can be addicting, can't they? I go through phases: AfDs for a while, then Recent Changes patrolling, then adding new content; it's all good for whiling away the hours. Thanks again, Closenplay 15:28, 19 June 2007 (UTC)

Kyabram & District Football League and clubs

I have removed the PROD tag from the league and club articles as I think deleting the articles is not likely to be uncontroversial. I can understand why you have tagged them but I think they should be taken to WP:AfD for community discussion. Deletion of these articles is likely to create a bit of a program of rolling deletions that I can see has started already. -- Mattinbgn/ talk 06:23, 17 June 2007 (UTC)

Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

Daxflame

Hi, I saw your name on the deletion page for daxflame. I was wondering if you could perhaps explain me how this deletion process works? So far I guess it's two keeps (including my own) against six or seven speedy deletion. The wiki page on deletion says the process is based on consensus, but i'm not really sure how that's going to work in this case. So I wonder how this is going to work, could you explain perhaps? I don't really know who to ask this.

By the way, I cited the G4tv featuring as a "notable", secondary reference. Slaapwel 20:32, 2 July 2007 (UTC)

prods

You're doing great work with the nominations for proposed deletion--but it would help us overworked admins who eventually have to decide on whether to actually delete the articles if the reason in the deletion notice were made just a little more informative, because we usually prefer to work with articles about subjects we know a little about, to avoid making embarrassing mistakes. Could you say, for example, "non notable minor league baseball player," instead of just "this article is about a subject that appears to lack sufficient notability for inclusion." I know it makes it harder to just use the bot, but it really helps everyone further down the line. Thanks, DGG (talk) 00:07, 8 July 2007 (UTC)
