Speedy deletion nomination of ShareRoot[edit]

Hello Schetm,

This page should not be speedily deleted because it is providing information about a company that consumers, brands, investors are interested in. I created this entry to help these people find out information about ShareRoot all in one place instead of having to look in various places. I'm not sure what content is copyrighted as I have also set up the other profile pages at which this information exists.

Please leave a note on my talk page if there is a better or preferred way to accomplish this. (talk) 14:25, 14 April 2015 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of 1st Franklin Financial Corporation[edit]

Hello Schetm,

This page should not be speedily deleted because it is confused in news, reviews, and search engines by "First Franklin Financial Corp.", which is a different organization with a bad reputation. I am creating the entry to help distinguish the two organizations.

Please leave a note on my talk page if there is a better or preferred way to accomplish this. (User talk:benjmiltalk) 14:16, 14 March 2015 (PST)

WJBK Vandalism[edit]

Hey! I worked hard with alot of sources in March to expand the WJBK article and you came in and deleted out all of the former on-air talent without an article link. All of those individuals were footnoted with a published source. I follwed the bio and lists of former personalities guidelines and you came in and vandalized the article. There are dozens of other TV station articles with former talent lists that are not even sourced. Take a look at the edit history. I did alot of work with published sources and thourough internet searches to make that article and Wikipedia better. Use the talk section next time for big edits! (talk) 03:10, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

Better source request for some of your uploads[edit]

Thanks for your uploads to Wikipedia. There is an issue with some of them, specifically:

You provided a source, but it is difficult for other users to examine the copyright status of the images because the source is incomplete. Please consider clarifying the exact source so that the copyright status may be checked more easily. It is best to specify the exact Web page where you found the images, rather than only giving the source domain or the URL of the image files themselves. Please update the image descriptions with URLs that will be more helpful to other users in determining the copyright status.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source in a complete manner. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page or me at my talk page. Thank you. Message delivered by Theo's Little Bot (opt-out) 21:26, 22 April 2013 (UTC)

File:Bishop John Sweeny.jpg listed for deletion[edit]

A file that you uploaded or altered, File:Bishop John Sweeny.jpg, has been listed at Wikipedia:Files for deletion. Please see the discussion to see why it has been listed (you may have to search for the title of the image to find its entry). Feel free to add your opinion on the matter below the nomination. Thank you. Cube00 (talk) 04:05, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

Page curation question[edit]

Hi Schetm, I noticed that you are involved in page curation on Wikipedia. I'm thinking of getting involved too, since there seems to be quite a backlog. Out of curiosity, do you use any software to help you? Thanks, wia (talk) 02:19, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Howdy. Aside from knowing that they exist, I'm clueless when it comes to wikisoftware (twinkle, huggle, etc). Do you think they'd be useful? Schetm (talk) 02:34, 7 March 2015 (UTC)
If you've been able to do the job just fine without any automated help, then I think I should be able to jump in too! (After reading through all the relevant documentation, of course.) I've tried using Twinkle and find it useful for some things but maybe I'll get my feet wet the good old-fashioned way. Thanks, wia (talk) 03:48, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 7[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited David Brock (lacrosse), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Toronto Nationals (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Speedy Deletion of Page K. Kriti Karanth[edit]

This page should not be speedily deleted because... K. Krithi Karanth is a very prominent conservation biologist , she was a INK Speaker , A national geographic grant winner , A prestigious ramanujan fellow and was awarded the 10,000th research grant from National Geographic Society.She was named as a rising young women of achievement by Elle Magazine, and has been nominated in the Environment category for the L’Oreal Paris Femina Women Awards 2013. Her information on the page was incomplete I agree, but deletion was unwarranted.I request you to revert the deletion --Chinmayisk 10:30, 7 March 2015 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Chinmayisk (talkcontribs)

  • Hi, Chinmayisk. Assuming that the information on K. Krithi Karanth is true (and a Google search yields promising results), you can submit a request to have the article undeleted at Wikipedia:Requests for undeletion. Then, you can work on the article as a draft and fully complete it before publishing it. Good luck! Schetm (talk) 10:44, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

my first article is well sourced and accurate why is a deletion requested?[edit]

my first article(on Sarah Gertrude Shapiro is well sourced and accurate why is a deletion requested? my formatting isn't perfect because I'm still figuring it out. Could you please help me learn to correct it if there are errors instead of deleting the article. Thank youDinosuarus (talk) 01:24, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Hi Dinosuarus. The deletion request isn't for the article that you are working on, located at Draft:Sarah Gertrude Shapiro. It's for the article that only exists in the mainspace as a redirect at Sarah Gertrude Shapiro. I know it's a bit a bit complicated to understand, but the request for deletion is basically just a maintenance request. You can still work on your article at Draft:Sarah Gertrude Shapiro, until it's ready to be fully published in the mainspace. If you do want a bit of advice, you shouldn't include other Wikipedia articles in your list of citations, as you did with Un-Real. I recommend you read up on what kind of sources are best to use in Wikipedia here. To sum it up, don't worry. Your article will not be deleted. Keep working on the draft, and move it back to the mainspace when it's ready to be published. Good luck! schetm (talk) 01:37, 10 March 2015 (UTC)
    • Also, another user left a note explaining this much more succinctly on your talk page.

thank you for your feedback[edit]

Thank you for explaining. I will definitely remove the wiki pages from the references and find others to replace them. I believe all the information in the article is covered in at least one of the other references as well. Do you have any other suggestions for what I should do to prepare the article so that it will be appropriate for the mainpage? sorry for my ignorance on the issue. I did read the tutorial on creating a page, but I am still finding it a little confusing. thanks again for your helpDinosuarus (talk) 01:48, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Dinosuarus, I get it. Editing Wikipedia can be very confusing at first, but there are people out there who can explain it far better than I can. You can ask whatever editing question you feel you need to at the Teahouse. I did take the time to make a few formatting edits to your article. Beware of putting too much weight on sources such as IMDb. Also, try to line up your sources next to the statement that you are citing, like I am doing here.[1] Good luck on your article, and I hope this helps! schetm (talk) 02:15, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

Regarding Speedy Deletion of Page E-Commerce Association Of India[edit]

Hi Schetm! The E-Commerce Association Of India page should be restored from deletion because I'm working on this page and trying to make it more informatory and this page can prove useful for pages of various organisations as a reference, as it contains relevant information about the e-commerce association which is linked to various organisations. Kindly reconsider the article and restore it from deletion. Thank you. User talk:Shefali44 5:48, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Hello Shefali44. I did not delete your page, but rather marked it for deletion. As such, I can't restore the article. You can request that it be undeleted at WP:Undeletion, but your request will probably be declined, as the Association probably doesn't meet Wikipedia's minimum standards for Notability. schetm (talk) 14:46, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

  1. ^ This is an example of where a source should be located. 

Thanks for patroll[edit]

Thanks, for sugession on Gandhi Teerth. Deletion is speedy way, we need to enhance WIKI. Matter copied from Gandhi Foundation web is about public place. Text published, I am authorise to publish about it, and not have any copywrite. Text copied is about Foundation and Place. For more info, there is Gandhi musuem - currently this place is visited by more than 500 guest's per day (includes indian and forigners) to study etc. Have gr8 browsing and keep it up. -- MahajanDeepak (MahajanDeepak|talk) Mahajandeepakv (talk) 07:28, 14 March 2015 (UTC)


I am still learning how to use Wikipedia. this is my 4th or 5th hour of code (all together). I have been doing as you have instructed; with the contest and such. There is relatively a lot of editors contesting my page before I am done with it. That is why I am editing elsewhere then pasting. I understand the notability, and vandal vigilance. -All the more reason for me to work harder to create an article; which I feel is relevant to human history.

P.S. It's going to take me a good month to make a decent page, which means I will be testing it out like this for a month. Any suggestions are welcome. Thank you for your editing of the best 'kr-pedia around.Downejl (talk) 23:48, 16 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Hello Downejl. It seems like your article is in the testing stage. Be aware that the Wikipedia mainspace (i.e. article space) is not appropriate for testing. Instead, start the article at Articles for Creation. That way, you can work at your own pace, and not run the risk that your article be deleted. As it stands right now, your article, Edison Nation, doesn't even say why it is notable, and, as such, it cannot be included in any reputable encyclopedia, let alone Wikipedia. Good luck to you as you work on your article! schetm (talk) 23:57, 16 March 2015 (UTC)

I do not understand how Wikipedia functions in regards to the editing process, however I do want to address the current page for deletion, Joshua Chit Tun. I did not create the article, I do agree there are too many links referenced to stubs etc., without second sources. However I assure you if one was diligent to do the research it is not hard to verify at all. In the end this is trivial and not my concern, I am confident in a few months there will be valid sources to meet your standards from a variety of news group. It is just prior to this I preferred to keep what I was working towards a private matter, nevertheless I am one to document all aspects of my life. Every page and every image for every year.

Wikipedia is not my thing. This was just to acknowledged your comment, as you are the expert on Wikipedia, however I will continue to do and your comments are well noted, my team will make sure that the news covers my experiences.

To conclude, I would appreciate it since you know how to navigate Wikipedia to work with the individual who created the article to improve it so in that regards it meets all standards.

Thank you.

AFE Foundation[edit]

Dear Schetm,

We are trying to create a page for our non profit organization. We received a notice of "marked for deletion". Much of the information (Mission, Vision, About) will come directly from our website which we own the copyright to. Please advise.

  • Hello Afefoundation. Wikipedia guidelines advise against creating a page for your own company, person, or foundation. Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, and guidelines require its articles to be neutral. That can be very difficult if someone affiliated with a foundation is writing the foundation's article. Please see Wikipedia:Autobiography for more information.
  • Be advised that even if you own the material on your website, it cannot be copied and pasted onto Wikipedia without first going through the process described here.
  • Be advised that your foundation, in spite of the good work that it may be doing, likely does not meet Wikipedia's General Notability Guideline. This guideline is in place to ensure that there is a minimum standard for inclusion in Wikipedia.
  • Be also advised that your username violates our username policy, found here. It will need to be changed, or you will be blocked indefinitely from editing Wikipedia. Good luck! schetm (talk) 21:58, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

Dear Schetm,

Thank you for the quick response. I will update my user name immediately. Could you please explain how organizations such as the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation have a page? There are thousands of non-profits found on wiki- I'm confused as to how those exist and ours is not considered neutral? Also, I do not see how to change my username. I searched help but did not see direct instructions of how to change it.

  • Hello Afefoundation. Just because the JDRF has an article doesn't mean all charitable foundations merit inclusion in Wikipedia. See this page for further explanation.
  • The JDRF has an article (not a page, such as found on Facebook or an online directory) because it is considered to be a notable organization. That is, it passes the primary criteria for the notability of an organization. A Google search reveals that the AFE foundation doesn't even have one article written about it in any major publication, and has only one employee, per your own article. The JDRF has many employees, and many articles written about it outside Wikipedia. Please read our guidelines for notability of organizations at WP:ORG for an in-depth explanation. If you can supply in-depth sources found in publications unrelated to your foundation, it may merit inclusion in Wikipedia. If not, it frankly, does not.
  • You may change your username here. Good luck! schetm (talk) 23:05, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

Dear Schetm,

A few things to mention. A google search that was done must have been quite small as we have several articles both scientific and mainstream that reference our organization. If the search is based solely on this page it is not complete as a great deal more information needs to be input---however---it would be futile to spend the time if it will quickly be deleted. As a donor to Wikimedia Foundation I am not only confused but saddened at the response that the research we are doing and the lives impacted by our organization don't "merit" inclusion. We are truly the only organization in the world supporting research into amniotic fluid embolism and advocating on behalf of those with this rare birth complication.

As requested, below are the links referencing our organization and the work we are doing. Additionally, I have many other articles but they are not available online as they are print articles. Please advise on if they are needed.

Hello Schetm,

This page should not be speedily deleted because it is confused in news, reviews, and search engines by "YOTO". YOTO is the Brand Same Like JOCKEY. I f you approving their content then why not approving MY article's content. If My article look's Like Advertising then what about Jockey and many other brands? Do you have any problems about my Organizations or articles? I had shown proper reference too.

  • Hello Afefoundation. Did you read Wikipedia's policies on the notability of organizations set forth at WP:ORG? If so, you will have noticed that the first paragraph reads that "Trivial or incidental coverage of a subject by secondary sources is not sufficient to establish notability." It's not enough to simply have articles reference your Foundation. I have examined each article you have provided and, in each case, the Foundation is either mentioned in passing or not the main focus of the article. The Foundation is not the primary focus of any one of the articles you have provided and, as such, the Foundation is not, at this time, notable enough to be included in Wikipedia. This has nothing to do with the quality or importance of your Foundation's work. If Mother Teresa was merely a run of the mill nun, she wouldn't have an article written about her either. The fact that she has received significant coverage (not just passing mentions) in reliable sources that are independent of the subject is what makes her article suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia, not the good that she did.
  • The point is ultimately moot. The original article was deleted because it was a copyright violation. If you feel that you can write an article on the Foundation without copy/pasting from any source, while establishing that your Foundation is notable, you should feel free to do so. I strongly suggest that you do so at Articles for creation, which will take you through a process to ensure a quality article. Otherwise, I encourage you to examine alternate outlets to publish an article on your Foundation. Good luck! schetm (talk) 05:47, 19 March 2015 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:KCEN open.png[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:KCEN open.png. 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 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).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 23:51, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

Ludlum Measurements[edit]

Hi, I have added a couple of secondary sources that should be sufficient to establish the notability of the subject. I would suggest that WP:ORG is satisfied and therefore WP:A7 doesn't apply. Could I respectfully suggest that putting a speedy on it just 20 mins after the article was created was a bit premature. SmilingFace (talk) 00:46, 29 March 2015 (UTC)

Church of the Ascension, Episcopal (Manhattan)[edit]

I just wanted to let you know that I eliminated all of the material in the article which came from the copyvio source (the church website), and that all statements in the article are now cited and sourced to very reliable sources.

My feeling is that material from the church website can be added to the article by other editors as long as it is not copy-and-pasted or closely paraphrased, but I wanted to start with a "clean slate". The editor who did the copyvios (who deid so when he created the article) no longer seems to be editing, at least under that username. Best, BMK (talk) 17:10, 15 April 2015 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Midas (Open Source Tool)[edit]

Hi Schetm, thanks for your feedback. Do you have any suggestions on how to make it not-promotional? Is it because I mentioned myself as a creator? I can remove that. I'm not trying to promote myself. I created the page because I think it's useful for people to have a place where they can go to learn about Midas, since it's now in use in several agencies and gaining more interest. Appreciate your thoughts. Mattchessen (talk) 17:35, 18 April 2015 (UTC)
