Speedy deletion of Erik Lefebvre[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Erik Lefebvre requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words.

If the external website belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must include on the external site the statement "I, (name), am the author of this article, (article name), and I release its content under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.2 and later." You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Delicious carbuncle (talk) 02:51, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

The deletion was not because of one person and one source. It was because the text of the article was copied directly from the source — which violates Wikipedia's copyright policy. If you would like to continue working on the article — the text, minus the copyrighted text can be restored to your userspace where you can work on it. — ERcheck (talk) 03:13, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
I've created a personal sandbox page for you — User:Coppercanuck/Sandbox — and restored the content of the article you started, minus the copied text. You can work on the article there and when it is ready, start it in mainspace. I suggest that you re-write the text of the article. One reliable source is a good start. One other comment — images in the infobox cannot point to a www url, but need to be uploaded to Wikipedia or Commons in order to be rendered. — ERcheck (talk) 03:19, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

Sandboxes and stuff[edit]

Hey Coppercanuck. As far as I'm aware, you can just copy and paste text code from the sandbox into the regular editing window and it will create the article just like normal. One word of warning though (because I've fallen foul of this myself)... don't create bios for players who haven't played pro yet. The reason I'm saying this is because I notice you made a few notes in the talk page for Ottawa Fury about starting bios for their two Kenyan players. Unless they have played at least one game in a professional league (MLS, USL1, USL2, the Canadian championship, or the Kenyan First Division for example), they fail the criteria for soccer player notability, and will be deleted anyway, regardless of the quality of the article. I know this because I created really nice articles for Charles Alamo and Vito Higgins, two goalkeepers who are on the full professional roster of LA Galaxy, but which were deleted anyway, because they haven't "crossed the white line" yet. So just be careful about creating detailed articles, because it's annoying when they get slammed. Keep in touch though - it's nice to talk to other people working on the same articles as I am! --JonBroxton (talk) 18:40, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Hey, it's a good idea. Remind me in September, and I'll set it up unless you wish to do so in the mean time.

Speedy deletion of St. Lawrence Laurentians[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on St. Lawrence Laurentians requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a club, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia.

Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guidelines for people and for organizations.

Curling infobox[edit]

Hi, great idea! Not too sure if managers, presidents, ice technicians, etc is all that necessary, same with major championships held. Maybe major championships won? Like, provincials championships. For example, the Ottawa Curling Club has won one women's (Jenn Hanna, 2005) and one men's (Eldon Coombe, 1972) provincial championship. -- Earl Andrew - talk 21:41, 6 December 2008 (UTC)

2009 PDL page[edit]

Awesome work getting this thing updated fast. --JonBroxton (talk) 23:53, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

No, I just reverted the Wolves change to read "Seattle PDL" because I realized there is no definite confirmation yet, and there is nothing on the Wolves' website. I jumped the gun. I think we should hold off on linking to them and updating their page until PDL HQ formally announce it. --JonBroxton (talk) 23:59, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

Victoria Highlanders squad[edit]

Dude, don't you think we're a bit early adding that to the page? I mean, it's four months until the PDL season kicks off, and as amateurs none of these guys actually sign a playing contract, so it's more than likely that one or two of them will end up not playing. Shouldn't we wait, and add the squads to the page when the actual games start being played next year (like we did with all of 2008's expansion teams)? --JonBroxton (talk) 04:41, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

Hope I didn't come across as being rude there, I certainly didn't mean to. The reason I was thinking we should wait is because I remember when my team (San Fernando Valley Quakes) was launched in 2006, we had a big press release, named our initial run of players, presented them to the media... and then precisely two of them ended up actually having any playing time in the first season. Jordan Hughes, the former USL1 player is definitely notable and he should be added to the squad, for sure. The other college players who will play should not (in my opinion) be added until they actually turn out for the team: in the first place, they're not inherently notable in Wikipedia terms until they play a pro game, and only become semi-notable as PDL players once they take to the field, and we start noting them on the team pages as current players. However, in this case, lets leave the Highlanders players on there for now... just take it as a case by case basis :) At least we are two of the few who actually care about PDL articles! --JonBroxton (talk) 17:55, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

Opinion sought[edit]

I have a question for you, and as a regular contributor to PDL pages I thought you might have an opinion. Can you please have a look at the roster of Bakersfield Brigade... you see what I've done there, with adding links to each player's college bio? Do you think this is something we should do for all the players who don't qualify for full Wiki articles? Do you think the links are useful, or is it overkill? Let me know. --JonBroxton (talk) 20:31, 22 June 2009 (UTC)

PDL bio links[edit]

Be my guest. So long as we keep a consistent format with spacing and everything, the more people help out the easier it will be. Keep an eye out for any corrections to nationalities of players while you're at it - some errors may have crept in here and there. Thanks! --JonBroxton (talk) 03:32, 24 June 2009 (UTC)

Re the Canadian National Challenge Cup, I'd say that only the teams competing in it are notable, not individual players. If a player who wins it eventually turns pro it's definitely something we can mention in their bio, but if they don't turn pro, then I'd say they don't pass WP:N or WP:ATHLETE anyway. Good job on the Fury bio search, btw. --JonBroxton (talk) 20:52, 24 June 2009 (UTC)

If I get some free time I'll do the 09/10, I had to create the templates to do the league table, so it shouldn't be that much work to do the 09/10, so I'll see what I can do. As for the playoffs you talked about, could you give me some more information if you don't mind. I'm not really familiar with the league, I just saw that the page needed some work. The page says:

"The teams will play each other 3 times each then the final 5 games will be played amongst the top 6 and bottom 6; making it a total of 38 games"

I'm not sure if that is correct or not though. --Footballfollower89 (talk) 17:16, 1 January 2011 (UTC)

Hello Coppercanuck,

I'm part of a team that is researching ways to help Wikipedia editors find interesting content to contribute to Wikipedia. More specifically, we are investigating whether content from news sources can be used to enhance Wikipedia editing. We are creating a tool, called wikiFeed, that will help Wikipedia editors make connections between content from Twitter or RSS news feeds and Wikipedia articles. We are currently gathering data which will help us in the development process and would love to learn about how you consume news content and how it relates to your Wikipedia editing. If you would like to help, follow this link to complete a brief survey. Your feedback will help us create a better tool.

For more information about wikiFeed, visit our project page. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask via my talk page, or by email at wikifeedcc@gmail.com. Thanks for your time! Jeremey Bentham (talk) 16:24, 25 July 2012 (UTC)

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 nomination of Fredericton Picaroons Reds[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Fredericton Picaroons Reds requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about an organization or company, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. Tchaliburton (talk) 05:22, 15 March 2014 (UTC)

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Calgary Foothills SC has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Club does not appear to have competed in any national competition, only regional competition and so does not appear to satisfy WP:FOOTYN. No other achievements appear to have garnered sufficient, significant coverage to satisfy WP:GNG.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.
