Missed deletion?

I happened across Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of Fujifilm FinePix cameras the other day, and I noticed that at the bottom of the nomination, there was a second page listed (beyond the list of FinePix cameras) List of Fujifilm products that wasn't deleted. Was that the intended outcome? Let me know if there's any cleanup that a regular user can do. --GargoyleMT 12:38, 27 July 2007 (UTC)

You closed Paxton Brothers...

before I had a chance to make the reference check I asked for 12 hours for. As luck would have it, I was confusing them with Tom Paxton, so no blood, no foul. - Richfife 17:29, 27 July 2007 (UTC)

Hi please bring back the fring page

I refer this message i got from user Felisse

"You might try some of these as reference sources: [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] and possibly even [6] which, while it only mentions Fring in passing, is a very reliable source, so combined with the previous fairly neutral coverages, might establish enough notability that fring would be able to get an article again. Felisse 00:36, 23 June 2007 (UTC)"

If we work closely together we can keep the page advert free, I am willing to help keep an eye and remove ads that users put up. there are more than enough good references now on the internet to put some info and a good page together.

Please let me know your thoughts. Thank you

Goplett 23:09, 27 July 2007 (UTC)

Thanx for the info,

"Go on and present these sources and whatever else you have at WP:DRV, and request unprotection of the article there. I'm worried some of those sources may not be reliable (GeekSugar is a blog, for instance)"

Please could you help me with this process and also help with an article, so that a non bias non advertising article of this new technology can be presented to wikipedia users.

I wouldn't like to do this alone, if we work together we can get a good articlethat can be good for all.

List of schools in India

I am considering listing the AfD for List of schools in India at DRV. Although this is usually for process issues (and there was noting out of process) the result is problematic. The List of Schools article now has India as a redlink, but Canada and others are not. This is a case where WP:ALLORNOTHING is exposed as nonsense. How can the list for one country be notable, while another is not? I don't expect you to have the answers, but am posting this to your talk page as a courtesy, since you were the closer. !Dhaluza 01:39, 27 July 2007 (UTC)

You should update the closing notice to say the article was userfied, and link to it. Dhaluza 09:29, 27 July 2007 (UTC)
If you would update the header as requested, there is no need for a DRV. However if you don't, that would be grounds for review. Dhaluza 03:39, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

Breaking Laces

Hi, I would like you to reconsider your decision to pull the Breaking Laces wikipedia page. In the discussion page of the deletion review page, I listed 5 criteria that we meet for notability. The rules say we should meet at least one of those criteria. If you feel that is not good enough, please let me know that you would at least change the criteria requirement, or let me know how many of the criteria *we* need to meet. Sure, we're not the Beatles, but it appears we do meet wiki's notability criteria. Thanks for your time... Darbyrob 08:45, 4 August 2007 (UTC)

YATE deletion

Hi, I noted that you deleted the YATE page. Your rationale was "The result was delete, especially given the campaign the people involved have been running to get the article kept. Wikipedia is not where things go to become notable. --Coredesat 05:40, 4 August 2007".

I believe you have overlooked the reason that the page was nominated for deletion (notability) and my response to that.

I did not see either the original nominator Calltech or anyone subsequent address the fact that a publishing coproration like O'Reilly is a large secondary source and that the notability guidelines state that for smaller projects it is unreasonable to expect many secondary sources.

Could you comment on that. AnandKumria 12:27, 4 August 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for your feedback; having looked around I can see another article discussing Yate.

Inforworld article mentioning Yate.

Is that enough of a secondary source for the deletion to be reviewed?

Corey Smith

I find it troubling that the page for Corey Smith (Musician) has been deleted so many times. He is a very well established musician in the southeastern United States and is gaining notoriety throughout many of the rest of the lower 48 states. He has released 3 studio albums and has played countless concerts, many with crowds nearing 10,000. These distinguishing facts rival the reputations of many other personalities that have been allowed to say on Wikipedia. Should a notable personality be banned from biographical and factual recognition just because he hasn't signed with a major label yet? You may say that I am a hard core fan that just wants publicity for this artist but I am in fact not even a huge fan at all. I'm just trying to do what's right. Taking his article off of Wikipedia would be like removing articles depicting minor league baseball players or fresh Hollywood actors. While I understand that Wikipedia isn't a marketing or advertising tool, I think that notable personalities that are well known, even if only to a specific culture of people in a specific region (in this case about 7 states), should be recognised at least biographically. kookamunga187

Hi, I see you deleted Vulcan when it should have simply became a redirect. As Wikipedia:Guide_to_deletion#Shorthands says: "Redirect is a recommendation to keep the article's history but to blank the content and replace it with a redirect. Users who want to see the article's history destroyed should explicitly recommend Delete then Redirect". Can you please restore it when you read this? Thanks. Mathmo Talk 20:19, 7 August 2007 (UTC)

Username blocks

I saw your block of User:Badassbassist. I'd like to point you to WT:U, where there's a discussion going on about the fact that blocking is being used as a first resort for all questionable usernames, instead of a last resort or a quick way of doing with blatantly inappropriate usernames, as the policy says.

I think you should have made a request on the user's talk page, since "Badassbassist" in no way indicates that the user obviously meant to disrupt Wikipedia. If you want to defend the idea of blocking as a first resort, you should do so at WT:U. rspeer / ɹəədsɹ 00:41, 8 August 2007 (UTC)

Hermes in popular culture, AfD

This is not a request to move the article back into main space. During the AfD discussion, User:AndyJones requested that the material be userfied so that s/he could work with it for a different article. In good faith, and following consensus, you deleted the article; however, you did not userfy it and did not give a reason for not doing so. I just wanted to ask why the article was not userfied, as I thought that articles at AfD which are not copyvios or BLP vios are generally userfied by the closing admin if somebody requests it (if this is wrong, please do let me know!) Please do not take this message as disagreement with the decision to delete. I voted to delete the article and my mind still has not changed. I just wondered why you denied User:AndyJones's request. Oh, and I've been todl in the past that I can be blunt in user comments in these cases. This is really just my personality when it comes to these things, so please keep in mind that, if this seems a little blunt, its not me trying to be uncivil, but merely me being a bit socially bumbling :) CaveatLector Talk Contrib 22:49, 8 August 2007 (UTC)

I noticed you specifically did not userfy per the request at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Hermes in popular culture.

Cool Hand Luke 16:44, 9 August 2007 (UTC)

Thematic motifs of Lost AFD

Hello. An anon user replied to your deletion and redirect ruling but could not reply to you on your talk page because it is semi-protected. Just thought you should know. Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Thematic motifs of Lost. -- Wikipedical 06:14, 12 August 2007 (UTC)

I would be happy to provide space to work on this article. Of course, I will continue the debate on the discussion page. I already have an old copy of the article at User:Ursasapien/Sandbox/Lost. Ursasapien (talk) 10:51, 12 August 2007 (UTC)

Could you restore the discussion section to User_talk:Ursasapien/Sandbox/Lost? We had a lot of good debate that has not yet resulted in consensus, but I think it could lead us that way eventually. I think it would be particularly helpful if editors want to work to recreate this article. We would not have to go over the same discussion; we could simply use what we have already discussed to focus and get consensus. Thanks, Ursasapien (talk) 02:15, 13 August 2007 (UTC)

Closure of AfD for Historical persecution by Christians

This article's discussion seems to have been closed prematurely or that it should have been deleted. It seems to me that there was not a clear consensus, the arguments for deletion seemed to carry greater weight and the fact that the other articles, Historical Persecution by Jews and Historical Persecution by Muslims, were deleted seems to militate against a premature closing (esp. non-admin). It would seem that if these types of articles are proper they all would stay and if not they all would be deleted. I think a review of the decision not to delete would be proper. I have not done a deletion review myself and wondered what your thoughts were.Mamalujo 23:36, 13 August 2007 (UTC)

Re: Image uploads

No, uploading images on top of other images is very very bad and should be avoided. Many times the image displays the old one in the dimensions of the new one or the image won't display at all. Good kitty 02:13, 14 August 2007 (UTC)

That is nonsense and you know it, otherwise there wouldn't be a button for people to upload over old images. Purging the cache exists for a reason. Chacor 02:21, 14 August 2007 (UTC)

Moving Milena velba to correct capitalization

This article was created with an incorrect capitalization, presumably to get around the protection of Milena Velba, the correct spelling. Looking around, it seems an unreferenced version of the article was deleted at the start of the year, and several attempted recreations were deleted as "recreation of deleted content". After thinking about it, I think a professor at a respected university claiming the world's largest anything is sufficiently notable for an article. This is to notify one of the deleting admins; if you disagree, let's talk on the article talk page. --AnonEMouse (squeak) 14:54, 14 August 2007 (UTC)

Russian political jokes

I came across this page today, and thought it should be deleted. I check the talk page, and find out I miss the discussion by less than a week. I strongly disagree with this closing, but not because you closed it improperly, but because of the discussion. As such, it doesn't go to DRV. However, how long should I wait before renominating it? i said 06:40, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

Blast. I guess I shall have to pencil it in. Thanks. i said 06:46, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

undeletion questions

I had a discussion recently about undeleting an article for which you were the closing admin.

I explained to the other wikipedian that, so far as I understood things, the undeletion discussion are supposed to be confined solely to whether the procedure by which the article was deleted complied with policy -- that it is not supposed to contain discussion of the pros and cons of deleting the article.

Have I got that right?

I don't remember asking you about this deletion before, or having any previous contact with you. My apologies if we have had contact that I don't remember.

I told my correspondent some of my concerns about the nominator's conduct, which I thought justified reconsidering its deletion.

I also told them of some aspects of your decision that were open to question.

In particular, a perceived POV is not ground for deletion. And you did not choose to address the nominator's highly disruptive edits to the article.

Of course if you have good answers to my concerns I will forget about deletion review.

It is possible that my memory of how reliable and valid the references I supplied, and which the nominator deleted without meaningful discussion, were not as valid and reliable as I remember.

Would it be possible for you to restore a snapshot of my last revision to the article, prior to the nominator's unexplained and highly damaging edits? (restore it to my user space is what I meant to say...)

The article did contain some crap, and some poorly doucmented assertions. My possibly unrelaible recollection is that I had done enough work on the article that if everything but my contributions was removed the article would be most or all of the way to a viable stub.

Cheers! Geo Swan 21:42, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

OK. I checked. I did write you about my concerns.
You left me a single brief response.
I thought I cited a passage from policy that I thought refuted your interpretation of deletion policy regarding POV.
I don't know you. I didn't remember us having prior interactions, until I checked. I don't know if we have had any others.
Having said that, let me make a general observation. IMO an important quality that is lacking in the world out there, and which the wikipedia could do more of, is an open willingness to acknowledge fallibility and admit error. I admire those who can admit error. I try to do so myself, even when it is difficult, even when I could probably get away with not doing so.
Are you absolutely sure you didn't make any errors around this {{afd}}? If you did I would really appreciate you being open about it.
Cheers! Geo Swan 21:42, 16 August 2007 (UTC)
FYI: I requested an opportunity to review the pages content, over on Wikipedia:Deletion review/Content review, to verify my recollection this is an article for which a case can be made for a full deletion review.
Cheers! Geo Swan 15:23, 18 August 2007 (UTC)

Help needed

Hi Coredesat,

Please could you help me file a DRV. I have put a short article about fring in my userpage maybe you can take a look at it first and let me know if thats more what wiki is looking for. I can make changes, so that it doesn't get deleted, there must be a article and i am willing to work with so it doesn't get deleted. Any help will be nice. Also is there a way so that only i can edit it, how do i stop others from adding adverts and then it gets deleted again?

Thanx in advance

"I looked at the article you have on your user page, and it's still an advertisement that would get speedily deleted. You need to work on it some more and remove the promotional tone. Also, three of your sources are not reliable as one is a wiki (that anyone can edit), another doesn't work, and the third is a YouTube video. A DRV at this point would most likely not succeed"

Thanx for the response. have updated again, please let me know your thought now. The Reuters page is working again, they just had technical error earlier. Tried to remove the promotional tone, let me know what you think please.

Hurricane Dean

It's cool about the "Category 4" part on the new image, but the reason I added it was more than likely at the 2am advisory, Dean will be a Cat 5. So, the image will have been of a Cat 4 Dean. But either way works....either way, that is one wicked hurricane. - NeutralHomer T:C 05:50, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

WritersUA deletion review

I posted the following question on the review page: Question, The process document does not provide us with any guidelines as to where/what/when you needed to have references. In the challenge I said I could provide numerous references. Do you want them now? How many? What types? Where should I deliver them to the reviewers? We can provide references from academics, corporations, professional societies, notable experts, etc. Google has 20,000 references to our organization from sources all around the world. Most of the hits are referencing original articles that have contributed to the knowledge-base of the user assistance community. Over 800 hits reference survey results alone. Most of the hits referencing the annual conference are not advertising - rather they are describing industry news and insights that came out of the technical sessions. Approximately 40-50 industry experts speak at the event each year. With respect to the authority of referencing entities, I would assume the size of the pond should not be as important as an organization's relative size in that pond. User assistance is a relatively small part of the overall IT industry. It does not regularly receive notices on large, mainstream web sites. But it is vital and vibrant. The numerous organizations and individuals that reference WritersUA may not be well known in the mainstream but they are certainly well=respected within our community.

List of California Typhoons Deletion

I do not understand why you have deleted the above article. I strongly dissent and request arbitration. The new article is not disruptive as you claim, nor is it inaccurate. I have not changed the title of the article List of California hurricanes that was previously in contention. The added article adds content which is accurate and referenced and which could not be included in the list of hurricanes article. I strongly object to your own POV reasoning, and I find that it is itself disruptive and out of conformity with Wiki standards. You have no right to delete a new article offered in good faith, with no substantive grounds stated for the deletion. Your threats are also offensive and I request a review of that behavior as well.

Gwendolyn Zepeda

I would like to discuss the speedy deletion of my entry Gwendolyn Zepeda for CSD A7 I want to repost entry but would like to see if I can convince you of it's notability or see if you could identify some other information that I could include. I believe that her relationship as a published author of Arte Publico Press and their Houston connection is a good basis for inclusion. In my article I describe her as a 'latina author and blogger' which may not sound notable anymore but it certainly was in 1997. Please advice and thank you.

Why You Deleted Harbor Springs High School

I want to know why you deleted my page "Harbor Springs High School". Harbor Springs is a small town and no one has made a page recording in history the school. this was a factual and historical account of the school and you have deleted it after i worked for two hours on it. You've seriously made me dislike wikipedia so much. I thought that it was a free encyclopedia that if someone knew something about a subject they could post it without worrying about some hurricane expert deleting a subject he knows absolutely nothing about. DreamTrain 00:04, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

Continuation on Notability of Entry for author Gwendolyn Zepeda

Gwendolyn Zepeda is a published author most notably. I feel the blog aspect is significant simply because of the timeline. If you look at Wikipedia's own entry on Blog, you will see that Gwendolyn was right at the start of the phenomenon. She publishes her own online diary one year before the term 'blog' is created. If you look at the fact that she was also the voice of a Hispanic woman, this is important from a historical perspective.

Let's move beyond the blogger aspect and look at guidelines on notability as you indicated and see if some of the guidelines apply. Consider The person has been the subject of published secondary sources that are reliable, intellectually independent, and independent of the subject., This describes a presentation she gave to an open audience at Texas A&M. The author indicates that Gwendolyn Zepeda was recipient of an award from the Cultural Arts Council of Houston/Harris, Claudia Kolker, an editorial writer for the Houston Chronicle, discusses the changing nature of the 'quinceanera', specifically referencing a published piece by Gwendolyn Zepeda, 'The Quinceanera I Was Too Poor to Have', Describes the National Sor Juana Festival: A Tribute to Mexican Women held in March 22 –April 29, 2007 Houston, Texas. Nuestra Palabra is an important Houston organization promoting Latino Arts and is the host the Edward James Olmos Latino Book and Family Festival, the largest book fair in Houston. Gwendolyn Zepeda's presentation for the Sor Juan Festival was held at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston,

Now consider under creative professionals The person has created, or played a major role in co-creating, a significant or well-known work, or collective body of work, which has been the subject of an independent book or feature-length film, or of multiple independent periodical articles or reviews. The following are independent reviews of her published novel To the Last Man I Slept with and All the Jerks Just Like Him, reviewer is Bianca Escarcega.

What do you think? Do you think she is now more than a blogger? Joolio12 01:38, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

Speedy Deletion: Freedoms Watch

Hi! Noticed that you speedily deleted the article I just posted - Freedoms Watch - for lack of notability. I'd respectfully disagree with the idea that the organization isn't notable, particularly because of the combination of its message and its stated supporters. It appears to be positioning itself to be a major (or at least loud) voice in the controversial War in Iraq.

Given that, was the article deleted because it failed to assert its own notability, or because the organization itself is deemed non-noteworthy? Sorry to bother you; despite the age of my username, I'm pretty new to article creation. Thanks! Flynns32547 08:49, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

Ok! Thanks much for your input. Flynns32547 08:54, 23 August 2007 (UTC)
A bit more research finds that a couple bloggers have picked up on the organization, and a couple newswires have published the organization's press release verbatim. More significantly (I think), the Washington Post writes about this organization in an article published yesterday, and correlates the organization's message, fund-raising efforts, and timing with General Petraeus' progress report regarding the troop surge, and suggests that it's a concerted effort to change American popular opinion. (see: washington post article)
Would including this material establish notability? If not, I'll just hold off for a couple days/weeks or so, and wait for it to be picked up and bandied about and made a little more well-known. Thanks again for your time! Flynns32547 09:14, 23 August 2007 (UTC)
Ok! Thanks again. Flynns32547 09:18, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

Did I tag this wrong? I figured speedy since it was a flagrant copyright violation, I mean, unless Harrisburg, Illinois was wiped off the map, right? Or am I interpreting this incorrectly? IvoShandor 08:56, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

Sounds good to me, I was just wondering, thanks. IvoShandor 09:00, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

re deleted entry for "Jørgen du Plessis de Richelieu"

maybe the wording is too discrete, I am not a politician. However, Having spent more than a decade at the very top of European toy industry, participating in EU standardisations for toys and chairing the Nordic toy association + managing the 2 of the 3 largest toy companies in the Nordic region as well as stock exchange listed companies in Germany - I would have thought that kind of profile would be suitable for Wikipedia? looking at a number of other profiles in this great encyclopedia, I fail to understand the reason for deletion. As mentioned I have been specifically asked to make an entry since an accident forced me to retire 3 years ago, and I now do board work only.

Would you comment? Thank you, best regards JDPDR

Your complaint of canvassing

I hoped to broaden the discussion. I feel that WP:CANVAS does not apply to my post; perhaps you should read that guideline again. I did not post multiple messages, and did not target a select group of editors know to have a certain opinion. Chris the speller 22:53, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

Perhaps you should familiarize yourself with Wikipedia:Citing sources

"Any material that is challenged and for which no source is provided may be removed by any editor." Hoponpop69 02:47, 24 August 2007 (UTC)

I know I'm protected by wikipedia:sources to delete any uncited content, especially those that have been uncited for this long. If you want the article deleted than do it yourself.Hoponpop69 00:32, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

Sorry for any percieved rudeness, but I don't see how as a wikipedia administrator, you do not follow wikipedia rules. I'm sick of this judicial activism.Hoponpop69 00:38, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

BJAODN subpage deletions

Hello! I have some concerns about the deletion of certain BJAODN subpages, and raised them at Wikipedia talk:Silly things#Additional subpages deleted. I wanted to invite you to comment there. Please note that I am not accusing you of doing anything wrong. Thanks for your time, and your efforts. Wikipedia benefits from those who care. —DragonHawk (talk|hist) 14:14, 24 August 2007 (UTC)

On this note, I've undeleted those subpages - they were deliberately spared in my close. Note that I would not consider a nomination of some or all of them querelous in the least - I went for a relatively narrow close in the hopes of reaching a non-contenious position on as much as possible.

Annular Hurricane Article "Vandalism"

UFC 77

Hi Coredesat, you were the closing admin for a recent AfD nomination that I started. I believe that salting is inappropriate for this article as it will be verifiable soon, most likely in under a month or so. If the article keeps getting recreated with subpar content, it can just be G4'd. Will you please reconsider your salting? Please reply on my talk page. east.718 at 19:09, August 4, 2007

Sounds good. east.718 at 20:46, August 4, 2007
Reliable information is starting to get released in mainstream newspapers, [7] [8] [9] as well as industry sites. [10] [11] [12] [13] [14]. Could you please unsalt the page? east.718 at 14:55, August 10, 2007
The only blog source I provided was UFC Junkie, which is authored by Dann Stupp, a sportswriter for the Dayton Daily News (discussion on WT:MMA). Sherdog has been a reliable third-party source for years. Excluding Stupp, there is information on a date, venue, main event, and three other confirmed matches, which I feel is enough to merit an article. east.718 at 18:45, August 10, 2007
Thanks! east.718 at 19:18, August 10, 2007

Thanks for your help. I have a feeling that user will be back shortly, under a new alias. I've let both accounts know they are free to add any sourced info they want to balance the article, as long as it is reliably sourced. --Eleemosynary 07:35, 27 August 2007 (UTC)

As predicted, the vandal account from the Sylver page is back, now blanking the page as "Misterblack42." [15]. I'd appreciate any help you can provide in blocking this vandal. Thanks. --Eleemosynary 02:52, 30 August 2007 (UTC)


Hi there! I was wondering about your closing of the recent AFD on Antoni Dunin... you state in the closing note that "notability problems have been addressed in the discussion" - however, the debate seems to boil down on whether the "Virtuti Militari" is a high award, or something given to tens of thousands of people. There appears to be disagreement on which it is; is there evidence of this either way? >Radiant< 14:16, 27 August 2007 (UTC)

Reality film AFD

I think you may have misinterpreted the discussion on Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Reality_film. I believe that 6 editors said we should delete the article and 4 editors said we should keep it. Could you please review it again? --Pixelface 18:35, 27 August 2007 (UTC)

Chartered Institution of Marketing

Hi there, I understand that you deleted the above article and I am a little puzzled. The CIM is a very big and world renound organisation for Marketing. It educates all UK professionals in the UK in marketing subjects and is clearly a notable educational institute. I also seem to remember the article was quite large and comprehensive so I am also bemused as to why you deleted it. Granted I think by looking at the original people from the organisation had clearly added some spin which should have been removed but it could certainly be granted notability on a number of different issues and should not have been speedily deleted. --Alex 09:26, 29 August 2007 (UTC)

Ahhh on checking your delete you removed my most recent stub article. There was a sizeable article on this page previously on wikipedia but it has completely vanished. Do you know what happened to it?--Alex 09:30, 29 August 2007 (UTC)
Thanks for the response. I don't have any great apetite to rewrite the article from scratch as I don't have a great deal of specific knowledge about the organisations history. Are you able to recreate the original article that was written in an advertising tone? I could work on this to refine it to make it encyclopedic.--Alex 11:49, 29 August 2007 (UTC)
Cheers, I'll remove the waffle and promotional stuff from the article then let you know when I'm done.--Alex 10:03, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

Hi, in future please don't make retarded accusations about me if you are not prepared to back them up with evidence. Thanks. Kappa 11:51, 29 August 2007 (UTC)

Why did you delete my article on Santa Wheels (less than 12 hours after creation) without giving me an opportunity to discuss any objections you may have had? At least allow a day or two for someone to respond. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Rsreams (talkcontribs) 13:08, August 29, 2007 (UTC)

StreetCred deletion

Hi Wil, How are you? I know you get comments like this ALL the time, but hopefully you can give me some information on my StreetCred entry. You deleted my entry this morning with your reasoning being that you saw no assertion of notability. I was making adjustments to the page to ensure that it met Wikipedia's policies and thought I would have time to do that by placing the {{hangon}} tag, but to no avail.

I also thought I was actually making good progress, especially when following the template of some other similar entries (myspace, facebook), although I wasn't quite finished yet.

If you give me an opportunity to continue to edit the entry so that it meets the site's criteria, that would be awesome. Also, if you have any advice for me that will help it specifically meet your criticism of 'no assertion of notability' I would greatly appreciate that as well. I apologize, but I'm a new member.

Thanks! DanielleDanigibbs 17:22, 29 August 2007 (UTC)

Wil, Thanks for your feedback. I have one favor to ask of you. Are you able to give me access to the entry that I had originally submitted. I was unable to save it and I want to make sure I don't repeat the same mistakes upon my re-draft. Plus it would be a great help not to have to start from scratch.

I actually inadvertently posted it before I was completely done with it...hit the 'save page' button instead of 'show preview' at one point when drafting.

Thanks soooo much! Danielle 23:26, 29 August 2007 (UTC)

The Greatest Hurricane Seasons of All Time

Hink and I thought this would be kind of fun. We're going around to some of our resident hurricane enthusiasts and asking them the same question: Worldwide, which season of what basin do you think earns the title 'The Greatest Season of All Time'. List your top five picks with a reason for at least your number one pick. It's not a big deal, but I thought it would be fun and interesting to hear what some of those really into it think. -- §HurricaneERICarchive 22:00, 29 August 2007 (UTC)

Apple Pie (band)

In you rush to improve wikipedia, you accidentally deleted an article i had recently created and not yet improved upon (Apple Pie (band)). Following your previous speedy delete with the claim that notability was not asserted, i made sure to assert notability on the recreation of the article. Yet, after coming back to wikipedia again to work on the article i find in your desperation to improve wikipedia you accidentally ignored procedure and deleted the article despite it asserting notability and without an AfD. If you could undelete it, that would be incredibly helpful, thankyou. -- Jimmi Hugh 14:00, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

I expect so, but given i have little time to fully outifit the article i am hoping an AfD will help provide the extra sources ontop of what i intend to add as soon as i can. Thankyou. -- Jimmi Hugh 01:16, 1 September 2007 (UTC)
