Happy New Year[edit]

And a very happy new year to you too. :) Hope you're up to some good projects around here. bibliomaniac15 19:22, 1 January 2010 (UTC)

reverted edit[edit]

To whom it may concern, while it is true that the media can drudge up anything on anyone at anytime, it is untrue and unverifiable that there is any evidence of a CRIMINAL CASE pending against the parties that are referenced in the links. I will also submit to you that the name Mike Manuel is copyrighted and prtected with published fines for unauthorized use, that CAN be verified. Also the image you have is not authorized for publication. Thank you for your consideration and immediate attention to this matter. (Stoobscd (talk) 20:46, 21 January 2010 (UTC))

I am sorry that you have made this comment because if you look in the links that were sourced you will find the case numbers, jurisdictions, as well as the judges name. I would think that would qualify as verification. The article never said that they were found guilty of anything. It simply states that they were being sued for securities fraud. I am unsure as to what you are talking about when you say his name is copyrighted? I don't think anyone in this instance has done anything to violate any form of copyrights. This is an encyclopedia and comon knowledge materials are not a copyright violation. Thank you for contacting me. Canyouhearmenow 21:56, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

There's a spot in the infobox template to put an image of a person's signature. A crop of the signature or a recopy into a .png or .svg should be fine to put in that spot. bibliomaniac15 20:05, 24 June 2010 (UTC)

Please stop editing Lucy's page. It's getting to be annoying. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:00, 29 June 2011 (UTC)

I will advise you only once that you do not come onto an editors page and leave such a message. Especially telling them not to edit an article that they were responsible for taking to WP:GA status! I will warn you about this no more! I suggest you educate yourself to proper wikipedia etiquette and read WP:Civil and apply it when dealing with other editors. You could find yourself in a lot of trouble here if you don't. Thank you..--Canyouhearmenow 20:17, 29 June 2011 (UTC)

You are taking Lucy's page in the wrong direction. Please stop reverting edits and let people who really want the page to succeed continue editing. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:32, 1 July 2011 (UTC)

I am not taking Lucy's page in any wrong direction. That article is a WP:GA article and will remain that way until we can bring the standards up to a WP:FA. I will not allow you or anyone else to make edits to that page that are not verified and sourced. Adding red links as you did does not constitute a good edit and therefore they will be removed or you will be asked to fix it. If you do not, then I have no other choice but to fix it. Unsourced materials must be removed immediately from WP:BLP. I would suggest you read up on it and implement it. Also, I would suggest that maybe if you are serious about being an editor of regular on wikipedia that you might consider creating yourself a username so that its easier to identify who we are speaking with. If you choose not to do that, at least sign your posts on my page by adding four tildes Thank you. --Canyouhearmenow 11:06, 1 July 2011 (UTC)

New York Emmy Awards[edit]

Just wondering why you removed the single source tag from the article :). Hope you are well. --Skamecrazy123 (talk) 22:39, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

I removed it because I am in the middle of creating these articles and just setting them up. I will be going back to add more to them and various sources. We are in a article building mode. So, there is no need for the tag when an editor just set the page up. We should always give them a chance to build the article when we know the article is in its infancy before placing tags. I appreciate you being on the lookout though! Thanks for you attention! --Canyouhearmenow 22:57, 13 July 2010 (UTC)
Ah, my apologies for not checking the edit times. I shall be sure to check them next time :). --Skamecrazy123 (talk) 23:03, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

Nadia Ali[edit]

Hey there, I noticed your background on the Good Article wikiproject and thought you'd be the best person to ask. I have recently done work on Nadia Ali's article and brought it from a Start-class to B rating. I think the article is ready for a Good Article status and have nominated it for that. Could you please give it a review and see if there's any changes I need to make? Thanks! Hassan514 (talk) 05:09, 16 June 2011 (UTC)

I will give it a review sometime over the weekend if you don't mind. I can tell you that just from looking at it, the header needs to have cites and sources. There is a lot of information being given in the header that leads the reader up into the article. It makes a lot of claims about her career and for that reason you need to make sure it is properly sourced. It will not pass without that. Thanks for your contributions! --Canyouhearmenow 10:34, 16 June 2011 (UTC)
Hey there, thanks for your reply. I am a bit confused about the lead to be honest. The way I worked around it was looking at other Good Articles in the Electronic Music wikiproject and most don't cite any sources save a few, which do for statistics like copies sold or chart positions. Also, the facts I have mentioned there are basically a summary of information present in the article, which is all cited properly. Do you want me to cite everything? Because then for most sentences I will have multiple references. The reason I didn't cite anything was based on information in the MoS about the lead and what I was advised by other editors, so I'm a bit confused on what exactly to do. Also, you mentioned some of the language in the article needs to be changed, could you please point out some of the changes you want to suggest. I have been working consistently on the article for almost 2 months now so I'm at times blind to some glaring errors, which others have pointed out. Thanks so much! Hassan514 (talk) 13:56, 18 June 2011 (UTC)
Ok sorry, I was out of town and didn't have a chance to respond very quickly. At this point lets move this conversation over to the subjects review talk page and lets get our review done ok? See you over there. --Canyouhearmenow 11:37, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

WikiProject Good articles (Participant Clean-Up)[edit]

Hello, you are receiving this message because you are currently a participant of WikiProject Good articles. Since the creation of the WikiProject, over 200 user's have joined to help review good article nominations and contribute to other sections of the WikiProject. Over the years, several of these users have stopped reviewing articles and/or have become inactive with the project but are still listed as participates. In order to improve communications with other participants and get newsletters sent out faster (newsletters will begin to be sent out monthly starting in October) all participants that are no longer active with the WikiProject will be removed from the participants list.

If you are still interested in being a participant for this WikiProject, please sign your user name here and please help review some articles so we can reduce the size of the backlog. If you are no longer interested, you do not need to sign your name anywhere and your name will be removed from the participants list after the deadline. Remember that even if you are not interested at this time, you can always re-add your name to the list whenever you want. The deadline to sign your name on the page above will be November 1, 2012.

Update for: WikiProject Good articles (Participant Clean-Up)[edit]

Sorry for having to send out a second message but a user has brought to my attention that a point mentioned in the first message should be clarified. If user's don't sign on this page, they will be moved to an "Inactive Participants" list rather then be being removed from the entire WikiProject.

WikiProject Good Articles Recruitment Centre[edit]

Good Article Recruitment - Completion Award.png
Hello! Now, some of you might be wondering why there is a Good article icon with a bunch of stars around (to the right). The answer? WikiProject Good articles will be launching a Recruitment Centre very soon! The centre will allow all users to be taught how to review Good article nominations by experts just like you! However, in order for the Recruitment Centre to open in the first place, we need some volunteers:
  • Recruiters: The main task of a recruiter is to teach users that have never reviewed a Good article nomination how to review one. To become a recruiter, all you have to do is meet this criteria. If we don't get at least 5-10 recruiters to start off with, the Recruitment Centre will not open. If interested, make sure you meet the criteria, read the process and add your name to the list of recruiters. (One of the great things about being a recruiter is that there is no set requirement of what must be taught and when. Instead, all the content found in the process section is a guideline of the main points that should be addressed during a recruitment can also take an entire different approach if you wish!) If you think you will not have the time to recruit any users at this time but are still interested in becoming a recruiter, you can still add your name to the list of recruiters but just fill in the "Status" parameter with "Not Available".
  • Co-Director: The current Director for the centre is me (Dom497). Another user that would be willing to help with some of the tasks would be helpful. Tasks include making sure recruiters are doing what they should be (teaching!), making sure all recruitments are archived correctly, updating pages as needed, answering any questions, and distributing the feedback form. If interested, please contact me (Dom497).
  • Nominators, please read this: If you are not interested in becoming a recruiter, you can still help. In some cases a nominator may have an issue with an "inexperienced" editor (the recruitee) reviewing one of their nominations. To minimize the chances of this happening, if you are fine with a recruitee reviewing one of your nominations under the supervision of the recruiter, please add your name to the list at the bottom of this page. By adding your name to this list, chances are that your nomination will be reviewed more quickly as the recruitee will be asked to choose a nomination from the list of nominators that are OK with them reviewing the article.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to seeing this program bring new reviewers to the Good article community and all the positive things it will bring along.

A message will be sent out to all recruiters regarding the date when the Recruitment Centre will open when it is determined. The message will also contain some further details to clarify things that may be a bit confusing.--Dom497 (talk)

GAN December 2013 Backlog Drive[edit]

Symbol support vote.svg
Hello! A GAN Backlog Drive will begin in less than 4 days!

In past Backlog Drives, the goal was to reduce the backlog of Good article nominations. In the upcoming drive, another goal will be added - raising as much money as we can for the Wikimedia Foundation. How will this work? Well, its pretty simple. Any user interested in donating can submit a pledge at the Backlog Drive page (linked above). The pledge should mention the amount of money the user is willing to donate per review. For example, if a user pledges 5 cents per review and 100 nominations are reviewed, the total donation amount is $5.00.

At the time this message was sent out, two users have submitted pledges for a total of 8 cents per review. All pledges, no matter how much money, are greatly appreciated. Also, in no way is this saying you must make a pledge.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me or leave a message on the Backlog Drive talk page. And remember, there are less than 4 days before the drive starts!--EdwardsBot (talk) 03:02, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

March 2014 GAN Backlog Drive[edit]

It's that time again! Starting on March 1, there will be another GAN Backlog Drive! There will be several changes compared to previous drives:

  • This drive will introduce a new component to it; a point system. In a nutshell, older nominations are worth more points than newer nominations. The top 3 participants who have the points will be awarded the Golden, Silver, or Bronze Wikipedia Puzzle Piece Trophy, respectively.
  • Unlike the December 2013 Backlog Drive, earning an additional barnstar if you reached your goal has been removed.
  • The allowance to have insufficient reviews has been lowered to 2 before being disqualified.
  • An exception to the rule that all reviews must be completed before the deadline has been created.

Also, something that I thought I would share with all of you is that we raised $20.88 (USD) for the WMF in the December 2013 drive. It may not sound like a lot but considering that that was raised just because we reviewed articles, I would say that's pretty good! With that success, pledges can be made for the upcoming drive if you wish.

More info regarding the drive and full descriptions regarding the changes to this drive can be found on the the drive page. If you have any questions, feel free to leave a message on the drive talk page.

I look forward to your participation and hope that because of it, some day the backlog will be gone!

David L. Cook[edit]

Hi. I appreciate your criticism and think I understand the point you were making. If I could just respectfully point out that -- while I understand your concerns about an over-reliance on tagging -- the article as it existed before was a disaster, in my opinion, re NPOV, BLP, MOS. Yours, Quis separabit? 19:30, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

I agree that the article was in need of some update. I have just been very busy and had not gotten around to working on it. The links that you removed were in fact old links and in need of updating. I will at some point go into a research mode again and find the sources to incorporate into the article as needed. But again, thank you for understanding my point and for helping.--Canyouhearmenow 22:16, 5 April 2014 (UTC)
Understood. Two heads are usually better than one, so I look forward to working with you. Quis separabit? 15:21, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

Hi Canyouhearmenow, I just wanted to let you know that I have added the autopatrolled right to your account, as you have created numerous, valid articles.

George Jepsen[edit]

Can you explain to me why you deleted the 01:21, 12 June 2014‎ edit I made to the George Jepsen page where I updated the page with current 2014 nomination information? The page has been cited as looking like an advertisement, and I added his Republican opponent. Deleting that makes this look more like a partial advertisement. I am new to wikipedia and just seek clarification.EditorJohnny (talk) 01:59, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

Yes, I had originally accepted the revision and then was made aware that this article and your account might be involved in an issue of being a sock puppet. I then decided to do a revision and allow someone who was more qualified to deal with the investigation to do the acceptance of the revision. So that is why I took the actions I did.--Canyouhearmenow 02:49, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for your prompt response. The George Jepsen article has no relationship to any "sockpuppet" review. It has to do with a different article. What makes you think the review has anything to do with the George Jepsen article/biography? No offense to you, but I am beginning to have second thoughts about being involved in Wikipedia whatsoever. I have other things to devote my time and energy than to have to constantly have to "defend" myself and my minimal edits. EditorJohnny (talk) 17:57, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

Unfortunately, when someone is under an investigation of this sort, all of their contributions become suspect. I am not a part of that investigation so I am not aware of the particulars in this case. I simply took the position that I would let the investigators review the contributions instead of myself and that's why they were edited the way they were. Also, if in fact the allegations are not substantiated then I would suggest that you continue editing in a constructive fashion and continuing to be an asset to us all here on Wikipedia. Sometimes things are just merely misunderstandings and can be rectified without a great deal of fanfare!--Canyouhearmenow 10:51, 17 June 2014 (UTC)

MacBookPro page Edit[edit]

Hi there! :)

I am new to wikipedia and have no experience adding content to a page. So please excuse my "intrusion" by means of not using wikipedia rules.

The link to the site i am trying to add is quite essential to the whole MacBookPro experience. It reveals the reality of how negative this has been for thousands of now abandoned users with very expensive but now completely useless laptops of this brand and line of laptops. Apple denies there is anything wrong with the MBP made in 2011 and is denying any free repair or at rare cases giving a free or flat rate logic board replacements with refurbished ones that sometimes fail within days. A objective article should contain all the information regarding its object of interest and thus i belive this information belongs to the pag on MacBook Pro. If you can kindly assist me in formatting the link so it can be properly added this will be truely appreciated and by the way would personally give a little more faith in the objectivity of the whole wikipedia ecosystem as a trustworthy one. You do understand this is not a SPAM or attempt of Vandalism as the previous reasons for the removal of it(which makes me think that apple inc is deliberatly trying to hide any possbile information about the issue!) will the truth prevail or at least the right for it to exist?

thank you!

p.s. sorry for writing anonymously but i am not registered yet. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:06, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for contacting me. I appreciate your efforts to write something for informative purposes. However, we must use civility in all aspects of writing here on Wikipedia. You can't write things in a WP:POV fashion. If it is a problem that has been reported on you would need to write it in an encyclopedic fashion. The link you are trying to add has to be done in a wiki fashion. I checked the link you are trying to share and it seems to go to a information page which is telling people that the page is experiencing difficulties.[1] I would think that a better avenue to follow would be a third party source that is talking about the difficulties of that product. If you continue to try to add this page link, I can see where editors will continue to take it down. It needs to have some verbiage of how it is causing a problem to be allowed as an article inclusion. The fact that it is a page that shows they are having technical issues does not amount to a reliable explanation nor a reliable reason to allow it into the article. I believe once you find a reliable third party source you will not have any objections to it being added to the article.--Canyouhearmenow 03:48, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

Beasley up is still a free agent[edit]

You ruin wikipedias credibility — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:58, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

First of all, please do not come onto my page and leave such uncivil remarks like this. If you don't like one of my edits then you may come and speak with me about it, but you need to follow WP:Civility. Second, I have nothing to do with this article except reviewing it. So, if you have a problem with something that was taken away from it or added to it, I doubt I am the one you are looking for! --Canyouhearmenow 12:52, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

WikiProject Good articles Future GAN Backlog Drive[edit]

Hello everyone! Hope you've all been having a great summer!

TheQ Editor recently proposed the idea of having another Backlog Drive in either September/October or November/December of this year. For those of you who have participated in the past two drives you know I was the one who organized them, however, come September, this will be my most important year in school so I will not be able to coordinate this drive (if it happens). TheQ Editor has volunteered to be a coordinator for the drive. If any of you would like to co-coordinator, please notify TheQ Editor on his talk page.

If you would be interested in participating in a Backlog Drive sometime before the end of this year, please notify TheQ Editor. Also, make sure to specify what month(s) work best for you.

At the time this message was sent out, the backlog was at 520 nominations. Since May, the backlog has been steadily increasing and we are currently near an all time high. Even though the backlog will not disappear over one drive, this drive can lead to several others which will (hopefully) lead to the day where there is no longer a backlog.

As always, the more participants, the better, and everyone is encouraged to participate!

GA Cup[edit]

Hello everyone! We hope you have all been having a great summer!

As we all know, the recent GAN Backlog Drives have not had any big impact on the backlog. Because of that, me (Dom497), Figureskatingfan, and TheQ Editor have worked on an idea that could possibly finally put a dent into the massive backlog. Now, I will admit, the idea isn't entirely ours as we have took the general idea of the WikiCup and brought it over to WikiProject Good Articles. But anyways, here's what we have in mind:

For all of you that do not know what the WikiCup is, it is an annual competition between several editors to see who can get the most Good Articles, Featured Article's, Did You Know's, etc. Based of this, we propose to you the GA Cup. This competition will only focus on reviewing Good articles.

For more info on the proposal, click here. As a FYI, the proposal page is not what the final product will look like (if you do go ahead with this idea). It will look very similar to WikiCup's page(s).

The discussion for the proposal will take place here. Please let us know if you are interested, have any concerns, things to consider, etc.

WikiProject Good Articles - GA Cup[edit]

WikiProject Good Articles's 2014-15 GA Cup
Symbol support vote.svg

WikiProject Good articles is holding a new competition, the GA Cup, from October 1, 2014 - March 28, 2015. The Cup will be based on reviewing Good article nominations; for each review, points will be awarded with bonuses for older nominations, longer articles and comprehensive reviews. All participants will start off in one group and the highest scoring participants will go through to the second round. At the moment six rounds are planned, but this may change based on participant numbers.

Some of you may ask: what is the purpose for a competition of this type? Currently, there is a backlog of about 500 unreviewed Good article nominations, almost an all time high. It is our hope that we can decrease the backlog in a fun way, through friendly competition.

Everyone is welcome to join; new and old editors! Sign-ups will be open until October 15, 2014 so sign-up now!

If you have any questions, take a look at the FAQ page and/or contact one of the four judges.

Re: Emily Schooley article. There is a little bit of press about a world premiere play she just did (findable under a Google news search) but I am still not sure if that is enough according to what others think is notable.Sadfatandalone (talk) 22:52, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

Sadfatandalone I left a message on your page. Let me know when you get the article to a good place and I will review it for you to see if I can get it pushed through review. I would not suggest just re-creating the article as it will surely be moved for deletion again. That article really has some editors on alert. I await your request.--Canyouhearmenow 00:32, 18 December 2014 (UTC)[edit]

I am moving this here because the IP blanked it from their talk page. I am pinging @ so that he is aware of this discussion. Chillum 19:42, 2 January 2015 (UTC)

Chillum it is evident that this IP is continually trying to edit war. The rules are in our favor and I support you putting the wording back to the original inclusion using the term "famously" as that is what was used in the quote and source. Remember there is the WP:3RR and if they continue then I suggest taking them to an admin board for appropriate actions to be taken. This is simply ridiculous and is nothing more than a cat and mouse game. I refuse to take part in it especially after I have debunked the stated argument for the peacock rules application. Please let me know if you need me.--Canyouhearmenow 19:25, 2 January 2015 (UTC)

The article is back in its earlier state, the IP stopped edit warring on the article and began to discuss on the talk page. I am grateful for that, which is why it is so disappointing that this editor is willing to get blocked over not being allowed to alter someones comments.
While I am an administrator it would not be appropriate for me to take any admin action given I am involved in a content dispute here. If the edit where the IP altered the other users comments is removed and the IP reverts again then that will be a clear 3RR violation and a report to WP:EWN can be made so an uninvolved admin can make a decision.
Note this IP has already had ample warning about edit warring[2][3][4][5][6], it is not obvious because he blanks them. Chillum 19:34, 2 January 2015 (UTC)

AN glitch, minor[edit]

Your comment [7] removed SummerPhD's and some others, I think. (This happens periodically on AN and ANI, not your fault). Why is your edit marked as minor? NE Ent 03:03, 6 January 2015 (UTC)

NE Ent I didn't make it as a minor edit. I have noticed there is a few bugs that have happened lately. I think it may be a software issue? But thank you for restoring my comment.--Canyouhearmenow 03:19, 6 January 2015 (UTC)

AN clarification[edit]

"Excuse me, but if you are.." I request you to add the username of the person who you were referring to, it is getting a bit confusing. Thanks OccultZone (TalkContributionsLog) 03:39, 6 January 2015 (UTC)

I was speaking of the IP in question.--Canyouhearmenow 03:42, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
I have done that for you, hope you won't mind. OccultZone (TalkContributionsLog) 03:55, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
No.. thank you. I simply thought it was implied until I went back and saw your comments and could see where the lines were getting a bit blurred. That particular IP is a real piece of work and continually stirs other editors up. Even when you point out the proper application of the rules they continually want to argue. I hope you guys can deal with him/her appropriately! Again, thank you for fixing my comment.--Canyouhearmenow 04:30, 6 January 2015 (UTC)

Emily Schooley Article[edit]

I have found two new sources that come up in Google News and have tried to clean up the article. The info boxes for her films don't seem to be displaying correctly right now, but I think the article sources should now be noteworthy and verfiable (newspaper, Digital Journal). Could you take a look? Sadfatandalone (talk) 13:14, 9 April 2015 (UTC)

Yes I will be happy to take a look. Whatever you do, do not create this article on mainframe yet until we make sure that the sources are notable enough otherwise you are going to run right back into a situation where is will be place back into WP:AfD status. You know how frustrating that was for you last time. So let me look when I get a moment and I will chime in okay? --Canyouhearmenow 16:23, 9 April 2015 (UTC)

Barbara mandrell[edit]

I'm watching a Time Life paid advertisement for a Country music compilation CD, so in curious fashion I wiki'ed Barbara Mandrell. In her "personal" section I read a litany about the accomplishments of her adult children. Is it common practice for Wikipedia to intimate familial achievements for celebrity/noteworthy individuals? What happened to just a name in plain text or the same name as a hotline? I found Barbara Mandrell's personal section to be very odd, almost inappropriate for this medium. (talk) 01:36, 30 November 2015 (UTC)

In most cases you would not highlight a child or spouse if they are non-notable, however, in regards to celebrity parents in some cases they have children who have themselves gone on to achieve a certain level of notability. In this case you have her daughter who not only holds multiple nationally recognized beauty pageant titles, she also had a staring role on a major network soap opera and appeared in several movies. In those cases it would be logical to mention them in the article because it does lend itself to the validity to the article. This is why her children have been included into the article.--Canyouhearmenow 04:34, 30 November 2015 (UTC)

Gary Lefkowith[edit]

Dear Canyouhearmenow, I noticed that my Wikipedia Page: Gary Lefkowith is being considered for deletion. I respect your right to question my authenticity. I hope that you will please contact Gary Trust at Billboard Magazine: Gary Trust can verify my affiliation with Chubby Checker & other Artists I have worked with over the years. Another good source is Kid Kelly at Sirius XM: Kid is head of Pop Programming & a well known air personality. He knows me for 20 years. Kid will certainly be able to fill you in on some of what I've done - Promotion as well as Production. I feel uneasy about giving out any contact info for Chubby. Please feel free to contact me anytime from the info bellow. The work you do to uphold the integrity of Wikipedia should be appreciated. Many Thanks for considering my request & looking into what I've done. All the Best, Gary

Mr. Lefkowith: Please be advised that I placed the article up for deletion because there are no independent sources other than your own to support the article. I appreciate you giving me people to contact, however, that falls under WP:OR which is against Wikipedia's rules. I have also seen that you are the major contributor and originator of this article. While a subject of an article can add or remove content, it is very frowned upon because you must remain neutral and provide third party sourcing. You can't just say, "I did these things, or so and so will confirm I did them" they must be verified through sources in print. Hence the reason I have a problem with this article. Most of the things contained therein are bot verifiable and so the article needs to be deleted in my personal opinion. It might be good for you to read WP:BLP and in particular the section that deals with writing an article about yourself> [8]. I have also removed the part of this message in which you placed your personal contact information upon. I would suggest not doing that as you never know who is patrolling these pages and using that information for the wrong purposes. I truly hope you understand that this is nothing personal, but strictly trying to adhere to the guidelines for making articles compliant. Please feel free to contact me again should you have any further questions.--Canyouhearmenow 10:48, 13 July 2016 (UTC)

Gary Lefkowith[edit]

Canyouhearmenow, Honestly this process is hard for me to navigate. Like a different world for me. That's why I offered some contact people for you. I'm not savoy to the process. The original Article was written by Casey Skinner, about 5 years ago or more & Sam DeRose has updated it a few times. I have done some edits but most are done by Sam. My work is so well documented in the Music Business - from being on TV, in Billboard & even a couple New York Times Articles. I really am puzzled that my credibility & career are being questioned. You are knowledgeable about this process & I have literally no clue. I respect your diligence & integrity to do what you do; so I would like you to investigate me online & help me so this can be resolved. I have been an Artist, Songwriter, Producer & Promoter and because of my work with Chubby Checker, that's what is really unique. I have Produced & Co-Written 5 singles for him. The most recent one "Lookin' For Me" charted on Mediabase & extended his National Chart Life to over 55 years. An Article about that was in RAMP, an industry e-mail. You have my cell & e-mail. Again this protocol in Wiki is difficult to figure out. I almost couldn't get back to this page. I'm asking for your help in correcting any issues. Many Thanks, Gary Hifiadd (talk) 17:38, 13 July 2016 (UTC)

Again Mr. Lefkowith I am not permitted by the Wikipedia rules to include anything that is WP:OR (Original Research.) If would help if you would click on the little hyperlink and read the rules so you can familiarize yourself with that procedure. I don't believe anyone is questioning your contribution to the music industry as a whole. What I am questioning is the notability to have a page dedicated to you when there is not any online third party sources or news stories that substantiate the claims written in the article. That is what the rules are and we cannot let an article stay when it does not meet those guidelines. Hence the reason I nominated it for deletion and placed it on the WP:AFD so other editors can ring in. Let's just see what the other editors have to say.--Canyouhearmenow 18:37, 13 July 2016 (UTC)

Gary Lefkowith[edit]

I'm forwarding all this info to Sam DeRose so he can follow your suggestions & links. I don't quite understand the intricacies. Also, from what you've said it seems best if I don't do any writing for myself, now & in the future. Though I rarely did. Give Sam a little time to get familiar with the updated protocol & he'll get this right. I appreciate all your responses, so we can be in line with everyone else. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hifiadd (talkcontribs) 19:32, 13 July 2016 (UTC)

Gary Lefkowith[edit]

Just a sampling of Press; a lot related to Chubby Checker, but all including me somewhere in the Article I will work towards having this incorporated into the Article & doing whatever is needed for verification. If there's an outside writer you think would be better suited to make these updates, please let me know. It seems like the more detached a writer is, the Better & Thank You for examining. links for Gary Lefkowith: NEW YORK TIMES RAMP (scroll down to Chubby Checker article about the New Record) BILLBOARD: — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hifiadd (talkcontribs) 20:27, 13 July 2016 (UTC)

Gary Lefkowith[edit]

FYI: Looking back at the history of the Article, the earliest entries are from the hill&hifi, which was the e-mail Casey Skinner must have used. Casey was an Engineer at my Studio, who freelanced with us. That e-mail was something that must have been done on our Studio Computer, that I was not involved with. I certainly must have given permission for that & for anything that said Generic Records, but when Casey started work on the Article, I was not aware of it. It was a pleasant surprise soon after. I hope you will also look at the press links from yesterday. Sam DeRose is educating himself with the links you sent. Further FYI, The only user name I have ever used, anywhere is hifiadd & in some situation where no one has HIFI, I use that in Industry Trades & with BMI. Trying not to take it personally, but this issue certainly calls my integrity into question, as well as my career. Everything is well documented in the Press & on TV & the Radio. My unsophisticated tech & internet abilities, are obvious, but I don't think that my over all work in Music should be. I work with Chubby Checker, who has the # 1 Record of all time, according to Billboard & Ive extended his Chart Life another 15 years from when he & I started together in 2002: All The Best, Gary Hifiadd (talk) 18:52, 14 July 2016 (UTC)

This is a Reply I sent LaMona about the Gary Lefkowith Article & is of equal or more relevance for you - My Thoughts to him are: The problem with e-mails & the written word is that tone cannot be properly conveyed. I am not angry at you or the editor who started this process, even as the 2 of you converse about me in a negative way. And after he started a process that seems like a chance whim, to further the credibility of his stature. I freely admit that I do not know Wiki protocol. I did not write the Article 5 years ago. So how can I be "outed" for telling the truth. I was thrilled, humbled & proud when the Article went up & surprised that it happened. Subsequently I wanted to ensure it was up to date & Sam DeRose made changes. Casey Skinner obviously used the hifiadd. If I need to get another username, I will do that, but before this deletion process, I can't remember the last time I logged on & never knew he used it. I have freely admitted that I am not tech savoy & would go as far as to say that I am naive of Wiki protocol. I am sorry you & the other Editor would categorize my response as "hassling" you, when in fact out of the blue my career & integrity are in question. I'm expected to be what is essentially a good sport, while you & he network to erase my life's work in the music business, on Wiki. "Everyone" associates me with Chubby Checker. Try making a phone call to Billboard. The end of Charlie Gracie's recent Biography talks about what Charlie & I did to give him his first Air Play in 50 years, with a record I co-wrote & co-produced. I'm sorry if my responses don't fit the image of what you & the other editor see as proper Wiki etiquette, but both of you are making an attack on my career, integrity, & legacy - which is far from complete. And now it's been escalated, which is unfortunate. I wish neither of you IL-will, but understand that deleting this article amounts to the vandalism you & he are so adamantly against. I truly hope this is an opportunity for reflection. I don't know you or him but your actions & words are cruel & hidden behind cover & with rules I am not well versed in. You & He know everything about me, name, #, etc. If someone you didn't know, arbitrarily attacked & challenged you in the way that has been done to me, the last few days, I'm pretty sure you'd be sensitive to it or maybe even more. I hope the both of you would please do some soul searching. If the article is deleted, I will not be harmed in a meaningful way - in the way that you & he will be. That is meant in a karmic sense & in no way threatening from me. Might be my Karma too. Even though this appears arbitrary from my perspective, who's to know? I can't know for any certainty. For your actions I feel very sorry & that's definitely not said with anger or hope of reprisal or with the intent to hassle. Again, reflection on both your parts. In simple language this situation he initiated is pretty uncool to me, but, I wish both of you the very best, The last sentence is the most important - I wish you both the Best in every way, Gary Hifiadd (talk) 01:39, 18 July 2016 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hifiadd (talkcontribs)

Mr. Lekowith I have not one time said anything about you harassing me nor have I made this personal in any way. I have repeatedly given you links to read so that you can become familiar with the proper procedures, yet, you continue to come to my talk page in an effort to get me to do research on you that I should not have to do, nor do the wikipedia rules allow me to do. I cannot call Billboard or any other radio person you have asked me to call. That is original research of which I even gave you a link to read about and yet I can tell that you have not done or you wouldn't be still insisting for me to do so. You sir are taking this way too personally and making it seem like we are on some form of witch hunt to get rid of your article. The reason I nominated the article for deletion is because there are very few articles out there that substantiate the claims inside of the article. Does it mean that the claims are untrue? No! It just means that there is insufficient verification to be found in written form that allows us to build an article with. It is for this very reason that wikipedia frowns upon the subject of articles have anything to do with an article written about them. They cannot remain unbiased and write without it seeming to be placed in a WP:POV format. So, I would suggest that you just relax and allow the other editors to review the nomination and make their determination. Getting upset about it will only violate the WP:Civility rules. By wishing bad Karma upon us for doing our editorial duties is certainly not earning you friends here.--Canyouhearmenow 02:31, 18 July 2016 (UTC)

Gary Lefkowith[edit]

e-mail to Stephen at Wiki: Stephen, I see that the Article: Gary Lefkowith has been deleted. I really hope you & I can communicate again, because I think there is a broader issue at stake & I hope you'll allow me a dialogue. I understand that you may have cold feet because of the negative vibe that developed. But in my business, I accept whatever goes down, the best I can. Chances are I will be back in Wikipedia; because my career is far from over & I feel the best is yet to come. However, the important issue is the wrong conclusions that were drawn & the flawed logic that arrived at those conclusions; along with the 2 Editors procrustean methodology. In my opinion, The few Editors that made this decision really need to be monitored themselves & have their egos, motives, & expertise questioned. My background & character are well documented & I don't hide under an assumed username. I'd appreciate communication with you, but no matter what, Thank you for your initial response. All the Best, Gary Hifiadd (talk) 15:49, 26 July 2016 (UTC)

Mr. Lefkowith I am only going to respond to this one more time. The article was deleted because it had no substance and no supporting documentation from a third part source to substantiate the claims found therein. Your article just like every other article on Wikipedia gets scrutinized to see if it passes wikipedia standards and guidelines. For some reason you feel as if this were some form of witch hunt and we were singling you out to get you off Wikipedia. That could not be further from the truth. You are also asking us as editors to call you and to call other people to verify your claims. This too is against policy as that constitutes original research. I have pleaded with you in various responses to click on the links I provided you to read the guidelines for yourself so that you may have a greater understanding of why this was transpiring with your article and yet you refused to do that but instead want to continue coming onto our talk pages and telling us how unjust we were? It is NOTHING personal. I do not have cold feet about speaking with you because I did nothing wrong. I will let you know that now because of your editing of your own article you have raised some eyebrows regarding your user name and the violation that lies therein. It is never good for the subject of an article to have anything at all to do with the editing of a page that refers to them. Now, I will let the other editors deal with the username violation as I was only dealing with the AfD of the article. So technically I am done unless they call me in for help with this matter. I should also make you aware Mr. Lefkowith that it is not advised for yourself or anyone else to recreate the article as it is surely to be speedily deleted. The only way that this article can be placed back onto Wikipedia is if it becomes notable enough to garner third party sourcing and there are articles and reference materials to substantiate the claims made inside of the inclusions. I do hope you can finally understand the reason the article was deleted and I truly hope you all the best in your career.--Canyouhearmenow 17:06, 26 July 2016 (UTC)

Hi!! My name is Teresa, Marlana's mother. First of all, I love Wikipedia, I read it all the time. We are sooooo excited for Marlana to be a part of this. If you could please change a few things for us, I would appreciate it. Before we created a Facebook page for Marlana, someone else did without us knowing it & her birthdate is incorrect. Marlana was born June 25, 1995 & she is 21 years old. Also Marlana is the first child born to us. She has a younger (but bigger) brother named Harlan Davidson VanHoose born August 5, 1998. Also she was not the 2014 recipient young artist of the year for AMG Heritage award, she was only the nominee for 2014. Marlana also was the recipient for the National Inclusion Project in 2015.
