Deletion of Article FS Cat's-Eye
Hi Chris. Thank you for reading the article FS Cat's-Eye. I check the reason why you delete it is that it duplicate the Cymophane. Cymophane is a chrysoberyl with cat's-eye effect. However, FS Cat's-Eye is a NEW gemstone with cat's-eye effect, the chemical compostion is diffrent from cymophane and the appearance, opal effect, transparency all different. It is different from cymophane. I hope that you can recheck it and consider it again. If you think there are some words may lead to misunderstanding, can you let me know and I will revise it. Thank you for your consideration.
Chris - I would appreciate it if you would reconsider Bertho Driever based on the revisions I've made to this article.
On May 19th, you speedy deleted an article I created. RePack is a disruptive, envinronmentally and commercially notable startup with broad media attention globally. The article was deleted due to A7. I am writing about remarkable Nordic startups and would thus appreciate any arguments for the deletion. Would more external 3rd party links help this? Can I, in any case, retrieve the deleted material for possible editing?
Hi Chris! Yesterday I started creating the article 'IOL scaffold' in order to provide educational information on wiki. The speedy deletion relating to the copyright issue with article (G12: Unambiguous copyright infringement of http://www.indiaprwire.com/pressrelease/health-care/200801226847.htm) has nothing to do with this article. I am trying to put forth the information on behalf of Dr. Amar Agarwal the inventor of IOL Scaffold & also the 'Glued Intraocular lens implant', the article that you mentioned. The sentences are also not similar & are of my own drafted yesterday. Regards, talk. — Preceding undated comment added 01:30, 4 June 2015 (UTC)

Deletion of Edureka page
Hi Chris, I dont know if this is the right place to ask the question. I created an article on Edureka today and it was deleted by you stating "Unambiguous advertising or promotion".. Now, I am new to editing/ creating articles on Wiki and so I didnt quite understand why it was deleted. It was written just like any other article on Wiki in a perfect encyclopedic manner. It contained general information about a company called Edureka, its history and what it does & offers. Is there any particular section which might have aggrevated you? Please let me know what change i need to make in order to reinstate the page on Wiki. Your guidance will help newcomers like me to contriute to Wiki in a better and a efficient way! Thanks.. p13amitp — Preceding undated comment added 15:30, 8 June 2015 (UTC)

Hey, after you deleted that page it looks like it was copy & paste recreated considering how the user created it with the speedy deletion tag on it. Just thought I'd let you know, article might need to be salted if it gets repeatedly recreated. Pishcal — ♣ 15:48, 8 June 2015 (UTC)
Hi Chris, You recently speedy deleted this article that I altered. I now understand now having read up on wiki rules that the contact was infringing on G11 & G4 of the Speedy Deletion Criteria. Would you be able to make the draft available so I can make the appropriate changes? I am working in the institute and I will work on this with the whole communications team to make sure it follows the wiki rules. I will take the page back to the form at which it was before I made these additions.Cian O'Regan (talk) 15:16, 11 June 2015 (UTC)
Copyright issue at Viorel ilișoi
Hi. I was surprised by your edit summary at Viorel ilișoi when you removed the deletion tag for a copyright violation, stating that it was an "overlap". It was a nearly word-for-word translation of the source web page. Translation of a copyrighted work requires permission in the same measure as any other use of the work. —Largo Plazo (talk) 15:59, 8 June 2015 (UTC)
Deletion of Reischauer Chosŏn Chung'ang Pangsong
I was looking into this redirect when you deleted it. You deleted it as a WP:R3 and WP:G8. I do not see how it meets either one of those criteria. WP:R3 says it only applies to "Recently created redirects from implausible typos or misnomers." Since this was created in 2009, I do not think it was recently created. The redirect had a target, Korean Central Television. This is currently a redirect because it was recently moved by the editor that tagged the redirect for deletion. All that needed to be done is update the target to fix the problem. -- GB fan 16:04, 8 June 2015 (UTC)
Sandbox subsection deletion help
Here's the background: I created a subsection in my sandbox to develop an article, since I already used the sandbox mainspace for another article's development. When I finished the article in the subasection, I copy/pasted it to the article's namespace.
And here's the question: If I 'd moved the article from the sandbox's subsection to the article's namespace, would it leave a redirect? In this case can I delete the redirect page myself or will I have to ask for admin help al the time? Is there a way for me to create articles in sandbox subsections (or the sandbox itself), move it to the article's namespace and not leaving anything behind? Thanks in advance for your time.

Deletion of Host Agent, LLC
I create a page with limited, general information about a corporation in Arizona, Host Agent, LLC that was deleted. The reasoning was that the article didn't provide an acceptable claim of significance. I would like to recreate this article.
My concern is that claims of significance will seem like promotion/advertising. The company is different than any other in its area in what it offers—meaning it does have a claim of significance. However, all Wikipedia business entity articles that I've read that list such claims come off as promotional/advertorial. Of course, those are all large corporations. My guess is that a smaller company like this will immediately get flagged for promotion just as what happened for not providing proper claim of significance.
Is there something that can be done to post a small corporation article like this or do you only allow articles on large corporations?
Thanks for the feedback and info! I know there's no criteria for the size of the company, my thought was just that the articles on larger ones were less likely to get flagged. Just a thought. I think I understand now though. Thanks! There was one reliable source in the article, the Arizona Corporation Commission. I'll wait until I have more material gathered before recreating the article.

Hi, I noticed you speedy deleted Citysuper (supermarket), responding to a request by an IP. However, I've noticed that a series of IP accounts have been going around requesting speedy deletion on all Hong Kong supermarkets, and I suspect those nominations to be bad faith  etc. Can you restore the Citysuper (supermarket) page and let it go through the proper avenues to deletion? Citysuper is a sizable supermarket chain in Hong Kong and an article can definitely be written about them. _dk (talk) 02:13, 10 June 2015 (UTC)
You have called for the speedy deletion of the Kevin Baker page. Earlier an editor pointed out that it was not clear that he was prominent, as his company Thomas Lyte did not have a page. The company now has a page, which makes it clear that it is a prominent company. Further evidence to support that Mr Baker is a noteworthy man can be found in the article's references; he has been written about and interviewed by a number of media, both mainstream and trade. His company was awarded a Royal Warrant in January this year, and the company is the maker of a number of prominent trophies, as outlined in the article. Please advice on how to proceed. Many thanks for your assistance. ~~KingshillScott~~ — Preceding unsigned comment added by KingshillScott (talk • contribs) 14:47, 10 June 2015 (UTC)
Thank you for your prompt feedback. I would like to take another look at the article to make required changes. However, as you have deleted it I no longer have access to it. Is there any way of finding it in the system? ~~KingshillScott~~ — Preceding unsigned comment added by KingshillScott (talk • contribs) 15:10, 10 June 2015 (UTC)
Thanks again for getting back to me. I welcome your feedback. You say the article should be based on reliable sources. The article is based on and carefully references The Telegraph, The Financial Times, BBC Radio 4, BBC News Online, Design Week, The Crafts Council, the Royal Warrants Association, The Mail, The Mirror and RBS 6 Nations own website. As such, I struggle to understand your objections with regards to reliable third party sources. If the sources are acceptable - and I would like to hear why they are not - then it will be a matter of tone, which in this case is deemed promotional. Once again, many thanks for your help.

Could you explain why you deleted Austin Stark under A7 of the speedy deletion criteria? Being the executive producer of a major film (see: Infinitely Polar Bear) and the director/writer of another upcoming major film (see: The Runner (2015 film)) at the very least would be a credible claim of significance. BU Rob13 (talk) 15:52, 10 June 2015 (UTC)
@BU Rob13: First off, I undeleted the article, the films this individual is credited with producing may be notable enough to be considered an "assertion of notability". The reason I deleted it is, there are many articles created by "executive producer" types who produced some some non-notable film. In this case, the way the article read (and the specific lack of wiki-links and/or reliable source citations made it seem like this was the case. In short, (At least in my assessment of an assertion of notability), "claiming to be an executive director of <film x>" is not an adequate assertion of notability.

Possible CSD Dan Sundquist
Hi Chrislk02, I just came across this article: Dan Sundquist. I was intent on nominating it for CSD G11, and maybe G12 for the copying of IMDB. But I'm a bit doubtful on it, the creator seems to put quite some effort in. Maybe you can move it to his userspace or something like that, your call. Keep on the good work at the CSD-deletions, loved your previous image on your userpage by the way! Crispulop (talk) 16:02, 10 June 2015 (UTC)
Rick Mather Architects
You recently speedy deleted the above page. I agree the tone came across self promoting so would like to work on changing that. I put a lot of work on pulling together the citations which all came from different sources. Would you be able to provide the content pre deletion so I can review and possibly re-write.
Speedy Deletion removal
I did not originally intend to use speedy deletion to delete the article. I provided a different tag for deletion but wikipedia actually prompted me to use speedy deletion. Perhaps this should be addressed.

Royal Hawaiian Center deleted
per 05:51, 8 June 2015 Chrislk02 (talk | contribs) deleted page Royal Hawaiian Center (G11: Unambiguous advertising or promotion)
I went to look for the latest Wikipedia entry on the Royal Hawaiian Center, a major retail space occupying some important real estate in one the world's leading tourist areas, and... it had been deleted. The reason given was that the article was *unambiguous* advertising or promotion. I very much doubt this, as when I first saw the article (created by someone else), I took out some ad-speak and tried to gear it to a more objective voice. Maybe someone thought this wasn't enough, but I would think the reasonable (not to mention polite) thing to do would be to just edit it further, or maybe put something on my talk page if you were too busy (after looking at the history page and seeing I'd made an attempt at such changes--people *do* look at history pages, right?), rather than slam it with a Speedy Delete.
I'd love to point to examples of what I'm talking about, but, well... everything has been deleted.
I am not employed by or at, have no financial interest in, have no friends or family with the latter, or even care about shopping at the Royal Hawaiian Center. In fact it wouldn't surprise me if its owners or managers care not a fig if the Royal Hawaiian Center has a Wikipedia article. The Center does however have a non-trivial place in the economics of Waikiki and by extension the state of Hawaii, which is why I bothered putting in time to edit the article some more in the first place, and why it should go back.

Deletion of Sujit Meher
Dear Chris. When i was searching for Sujit Meher on google, I wondered why Sujit Meher's article got speedy deleted .I checked the reason about your deletion of Sujit Meher page is that G3: Vandalism and insufficient reference links. Sujit Meher was there for 2 years, then it speedy deleted by you which is a page of a famous young designer of India and placed among to 10 designers list of India also his official page verified by facebook itself because of this popularity and fan base. Please i request you to kindly go through this matter and try to restore it. I have given some summery about Sujit Meher with many media references and other valid articles. Sujit Meher (b. 1989) is a young Fashion designer cum entrepreneur based in Bangalore, India and an alumnus of National Institute of Fashion Technology. Sujit in his graduation days launched a label called "Tilottama"[ that aimed to create designs for social causes with main focus to preserve Sambalpuri Indian Handloom art. In September 2013 he collaborated with a Bangalore based social organized and showcased his first Handloom design collection with the theme name of Folk fashion. Sujit Blends Ikat with his signature handloom fusion style.In 2014 Sujit awarded as Designer-cum-entrepreneur award by GCC, Group in Bangalore and became listed among top 10 influential alumni of NIFT.   I hope that you can recheck it and consider to republish it again. If you think there are some words may lead to misunderstanding, can you let me know and I will revise it. Thank you so much. I got to know that Sujit Meher page was initially tempered by "User:Rohtak camp" who is now in Category of Suspected Wikipedia sockpuppets of Vermapriya1986. "User: Rohtak camp" was seen doing this kind of unexpected activities many times. Thanks Wikipedia for blocking "User:Rohtak Cam". So that it wont harm to public figure's pages like Sujit Meher.

Hi Chrislk02, Your deletion of article https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=List_of_ICD-8a_codes&action=edit&redlink=1 listing legacy ICD-8a codes due to lack of context was unfortunate. I was researching how Mountain Sickness may have gotten conflated with Traumatic Asphyxiation in the ICD-8a and how the ICD-9 teased out those two conditions. The driver for ICD-9's disambiguration of ICD-8a may have been been driven by the original passage of HIPAA, or at least I hoped this was the case. I will be looking at other sources for an authoritative answer to this.
Article https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Statistical_Classification_of_Diseases_and_Related_Health_Problems appears to provide sufficient context.

Request for Undeletion of Speedily Deleted Userspace Draft
Hi, Chrislk02. I am requesting the undeletion of a speedily deleted user space draft which you deleted.
Here is why I believe this request is reasonable:
1. This was a user space draft and not an article. Instead of creating an article myself once I entered into a COI situation, I intentionally created a draft in user space, properly disclosed the COI, and sought out editor feedback via COIN (and subsequently via the Teahouse for a later draft) so as not to pollute name space with a potentially biased article. I intentionally sought out an article-creation approach which would support Wikipedia's integrity.
2. I was intending, after revising the draft based on feedback, to submit it via AFC, despite having article-creation rights. Instead of providing constructive feedback, however, an editor who saw my COIN disclosure and request for feedback marked the draft for speedy deletion based on CSD G11 (Unambiguous Advertising or Promotion), and you carried out the request.
3. While user space is governed by community rules, creating a user space draft on which to solicit feedback in COI situations is an appropriate use of user space, per here: Wikipedia:User_pages#What_may_I_have_in_my_user_pages.3F
4. Another editor's opinion indicates that s/he did not believe that a Speedy Deletion was justified: G11 applies to "Pages that are exclusively promotional, and would need to be fundamentally rewritten to become encyclopedic." On the other hand, feedback on the article's talk page indicated (to the best of my recollection) that the draft was perhaps a bit too promotional but it was nothing that couldn't be fixed. Also, G11 states, "If a subject is notable and the content can be replaced with text that complies with neutral point of view, this is preferable to deletion." (It is my understanding that the subject is notable based on meeting at the very least items 2 and 3 on the list of notability requirements for musicians.)
5. Regarding the propriety of speedily deleting user space drafts, one Teahouse host stated: "Speedy deletion is sometimes applied to userspace drafts. My view is that the transgression must be blindingly obvious to warrant the approach." Based on the other editor's feedback mentioned in item #4 above, my transgression was not blindingly obvious.
6. The speedily deleted draft is no longer relevant as I have revised it based on the feedback I was able to receive. Here is my current draft (link subject to change): User:Kekki1978/Draft3:Rick_Shutter This draft has been seen by others, and an earlier draft (Feedback2) was recently patrolled. I have received no comments regarding either of these drafts being exclusively promotional or needing to be fundamentally rewritten to become encyclopedic. It would be helpful, however, to have the earlier deleted version available for reference purposes as I continue to edit.
