Hello! I could use some clarification on the definition of a "spam" article. It seems odd to me that all of the articles on books should be deleted simply because a page on the author has been added. I can think of many, many examples where there are pages for both books and authors - and this keeps the author's page from being cluttered up with specific information on books. (re: Beth Revis) I'm happy to work on the articles to make them better. I added the author page in the first place because it seemed an oversight to have a page on a book but not the author.

Welcome to Wikipedia. Creating an article can be a frustrating and difficult process for newcomers. Particularly because there are so many rules especially about people. WP:AUTHOR is the notability guideline every writer must meet. If you want to write a separate article, even if the author is notable, the book must be notable in its own right. For that you will want to review WP:NBOOK. Two different criteria, for two different types of articles. If you would like help shaping and creating an article, you can use the Article Wizard which will help you create each article. There is also a fair amount of unambiguous advertising that makes its way to Wikipedia. There are several policies about it, but WP:SPAM is the one you're talking about. If you're ever unsure, you can always ask at the help desk. Mkdwtalk 03:10, 2 March 2013 (UTC)

Previous account?[edit]

Hi Caseylf. Your first contributions show a surprizing level of competence with editing Wikipedia pages, as well as navigation of behind-the-scenes pages such as Wikiprojects and AfDs. Have you edited here before under a previous account? ThemFromSpace 02:09, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

  • I'm a graduate student studying social computing, so I've read a great deal about how Wikipedia works. One of the reasons I started contributing was a couple of interesting papers at the recent Computer Supported Cooperative Work conference about AfD and Teahouse. Thank you for the compliment! Caseylf (talk) 02:39, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
  • And as an aside, I am also trying to get more involved and be as useful as possible, so if you have any suggestions or notice any missteps on my part please do let me know. I've done a fair amount of poking around but there is still a steep learning curve for some things. Caseylf (talk) 02:46, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
    The best advice I can offer is to watch how things are done, either by going through page histories or by reading over previous discussions. So if you want to write an article about a local coffee shop, see how the other articles on local coffee shops are written. The teahouse is a great place to step into editing. Be careful with AfD unless you have thick skin, it's not the most welcoming place on Wikipedia. Stay far away from heated disputes (disputes that have existed for years that noone can fix) and editors prone to causing a ruckus. ThemFromSpace 02:57, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

Deletion discussion about Magisterium Series[edit]

Hello, Caseylf,

I wanted to let you know that there's a discussion about whether Magisterium Series should be deleted. Your comments are welcome at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Magisterium Series .

If you're new to the process, articles for deletion is a group discussion (not a vote!) that usually lasts seven days. If you need it, there is a guide on how to contribute. Last but not least, you are highly encouraged to continue improving the article; just be sure not to remove the tag about the deletion nomination from the top.

Thanks, Ad Orientem (talk) 05:26, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for December 5[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited The Bane Chronicles, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Andrew Scott and Jesse Williams (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.

December 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Tim Pratt may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "()"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:
  • * ''Rags and Bones: New Twists on Timeless Tales'', Little Brown, 2013 (with [[Melissa Marr (author)|Melissa Marr]]

Disambiguation link notification for December 12[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited The 5th Wave (novel), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Independence Day (film) (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Orphaned non-free image File:Bane Chronicles Book Cover.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Bane Chronicles Book Cover.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 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) 22:16, 5 June 2014 (UTC)

License tagging for File:Theirontrial.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Theirontrial.jpg. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information.

To add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia. For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 05:05, 8 December 2014 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:Etiquetteespionage.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Etiquetteespionage.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' 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 "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 22:13, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
