Nuvola apps important yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Carousel Theatre, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

I have nominated Carousel Theatre, 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/Carousel Theatre. 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?xaosflux Talk 02:31, 31 May 2008 (UTC)

  • Note: I've reverted the speedy deletion, and listed this for a deletion discussion as shown above. Thank you, — xaosflux Talk 02:31, 31 May 2008 (UTC)
    • Unfortunately I am not familiar with the subject matter to work on this article. You may offer in the deletion debate to have this moved to a user sandbox for you to work on before re-adding to the encylopedia. Thank you, — xaosflux Talk 16:33, 31 May 2008 (UTC)
      • Congratulations again Carole on getting your article past the AfD. Many editor's first articles get deleted, as they aren't familiar with Wikipedia's policies. DigitalC (talk) 04:43, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

Carousel Theatre[edit]

I've already tried to find sources for the article. Just one source isn't enough, even if that one source is reliable. There doesn't seem to be much that can be done for the article. Ten Pound Hammer and his otters(Broken clamshellsOtter chirps) 04:15, 31 May 2008 (UTC)

  • Okay. Reference 1 is the community's website and has virtually nothing to do with the subject. Reference 2 is okay, I guess. Reference 3 is broken, and reference 4 barely even mentions the subject. If you cound find a newspaper article that is specifically about the theater, or anything else that gives it significnt coverage (i.e., multiple paragraphs about the theater proper), that might help.

  • Those are about shows at the theater, and as such do not constitute significant coverage. At least you're trying, which is good. Unfortunately, there just doesn't seem to be enough info here. Ten Pound Hammer and his otters(Broken clamshellsOtter chirps) 05:35, 31 May 2008 (UTC)

My guess is that through you good referencing you have saved the article from deletion. Well done! I know it's not quite over yet but you have considerable support. Do watch for WP:COI in future edits. With best wishes, Gillyweed (talk) 22:53, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

Editing Tip[edit]

Hi Carole Higgins, I'm DigitalC, one of millions of editors on Wikipedia. On behalf of the Wikipedia community, welcome to wikipedia! One tip to help improve your editing is to fill in the edit summary box when making an edit. This will let other editors know what you did when looking at the article history, without looking at the specific changes. You may also wish to visit The five pillars of Wikipedia. If you are interested in a specific topic here on Wikipedia (such as Theatre, or Canada), you can join a Wikiproject. There are Wikiprojects for almost any topic on the Wiki. If you need help, check out Wikipedia:Questions, ask me on my talk page, or type {{helpme}} here on your talk page and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions. Again, welcome!

  • Congrats Carole Higgins on joining the Theatre Wikiproject. Hopefully it will be something you enjoy! DigitalC (talk) 01:35, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

WikiProject Theatre June 2008 Newsletter[edit]


Hi Carole, welcome to Wikipedia. We briefly met while I was visiting Dani at the Carousel office. Thank you for writing the Carousel Theatre article, I have had that one on my to-do list for quite awhile. I'm sorry to see that you met Wikipedia with such resistance when writing your first major article. Advertising and notable content has been an all out war between the deletionists and the more liberal editors. I noticed you've been adding the {{WikiProject Theatre}} template to the talk pages on quite a few articles. Generally those are placed at the top of the page along side the other WikiProject templates and maintenance templates. I've gone through your edits and changed them. Also, it's best to not leave a space between those templates (it creates a weird spacing issue). Good luck on the rest of your work. Mkdwtalk 06:55, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

Hi Carole. Yes it's ridiculously complicated and Wikipedia has done an outstanding job at protecting themselves from being sued for copyright infringement and legal liability over ownership disputes. As the Artistic Director of Carousel Theatre you will have the ability to authorize various photos for use on Wikipedia. The Carousel logo can be uploaded under Fair use no problem. However, anything else you will most likely need to release under the Creative Commons GNU Free Documentation License which simply means anyone can take it and freely do what they like with it. If you upload production stills from a show it's not likely anyone will show an interest but it is something to consider. I'll be able to give you a hand once HIVE 2 is up and done with, but in the mean time if all this WikiPolicy is still confuse you could email me the photos you wish to have posted on Wikipedia and I will do the rest. Have you been to HIVE yet? Mkdwtalk 09:24, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
