Article was about a brand, not a company[edit]

Team Sure Win is a brand or trade mark owned by a company. The wiki article was about the brand, which companies are operating it, in this case 2 companies from 2 countries, how it evolved, and notable entities that used or uses the brand. There are news articles, youtube videos, and other media that support some of the claims. --HungKami (talk) 17:33, 6 January 2016 (UTC)

Please refer to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Team Sure Win regarding your argument as to why the article should not be deleted. Thank you. Cubbie15fan (talk) 17:38, 6 January 2016 (UTC)
I have copied my comment in Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Team Sure Win. Any comment on how to improve the page is greatly appreciated. Thank you very much. --HungKami (talk) 18:02, 6 January 2016 (UTC)

Why The Speedy Deletion?[edit]

Not sure why you would mark up for speedy deletion James Francis Gallatin, I would hope it was clear that it had been established beyond doubt that you cannot make a CSD A7 query i.e. why its subject is important or significant is answered.

  1. He forged a key book still cited today on the 1812 War, his name is mentioned in a National Newspaper in May this year to that regard http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/the-rothschild-libel-why-has-it-taken-200-years-for-an-anti-semitic-slur-that-emerged-from-the-10216101.html
  2. He is a key figure in early 20th century gay literature
  3. He was the commissioner of the first American stained glass window ever placed in Europe
  4. He is the great grandson of the longest serving Secretary to the Treasury EVER

Do I need to find more? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sirmoor536825 (talkcontribs) 22:10, 21 December 2015 (UTC)

formatted your post as I imagine you intended See WP:NOTABILITY. If there isn't enough coverage of a topic in reliable, independent published sources than it shouldn't have an article. Opinions are irrelevant in this case, and two brief mentions in a single article aren't enough to establish notability under the guideline.
So yes, you might need to find more. Do you have any more sources that could establish notability? NottNott talk|contrib 22:22, 21 December 2015 (UTC)

Images[edit]

Well thats where I disagree. I don't believe the images are cluttering the article at all (except the "double play" one on Castros is probably unnecessary). Especially on Coghlans article. Its just in a bad area.--Yankees10 17:07, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

Well that took a turn. Might want to remain civil with your lame "control the article" nonsense. I already said that the double play pic on Castros should probably go. I don't see the problem with the others and I don't believe it violates LAYIM. I really don't see the problem with Coghlans two images either. Like I said, the Marlins one is just in a terrible spot.--Yankees10 17:39, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
Because the "Castro on the road in St.Louis, 2014" image actually shows his face. That actually should probably be the one in the infobox.--Yankees10 18:24, 9 July 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.

jake Arrieta[edit]

How does one change Arriteas picture? There's not much point of having a picture from his Baltimore Orioles days. Rojocube (talk) 15:39, 14 December 2015 (UTC)

I agree that it would make more sense to have the infobox picture be of Arrieta in a Chicago Cubs uniform. However, it is more important for the picture to identify him (i.e. showing his face). I have yet to find a picture suitable to upload to Wikimedia Commons. Until there is a suitable picture, the article will continue to show Arrieta in an Orioles uniform.

On A7 CSD[edit]

Hey there. Just a quick heads up - you might want to look over WP:A7 again. In particular The criterion does not apply to any article that makes any credible claim of significance or importance even if the claim is not supported by a reliable source or does not qualify on Wikipedia's notability guidelines. Next time you might want to consider an AfD instead. Just a friendly reminder, I did exactly the same thing yesterday and a friendly editor pointed it out to me too.

Speedy deletion declined: 2015 Penn State Nittany Lions Women's Volleyball[edit]

Hello Cubbie15fan, and thanks for patrolling new pages! I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of 2015 Penn State Nittany Lions Women's Volleyball, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: the article expands upon the general subject referenced, and as such is not an A10 candidate. You may wish to review the Criteria for Speedy Deletion before tagging further pages. Thank you. Shirik (Questions or Comments?) 13:06, 22 December 2015 (UTC)

Glen Rice II[edit]

Sorry, but I've declined your speedy. A11 is not for tagging articles about people - it's for things that (WP:AGF) could be real, but sure as hell ain't notable. This means things like new words like 'squizzler' that are 'widely used' (amongst six kids at a school in Deadrock Flats, AZ), drinking games like Vodka Pong (invented last week by Joe Bloggs, and almost identical to Beer Pong but somewhat more lethal), new sports that are widely played (see 'squizzler' above) and are a cross between baseball and croquet, or like cricket played with a nerf ball, three candles and a kitchen spatula. They may be hoaxes, they may be real. If real, so few people know that about them there's no chance of articles. Hoaxes are different - they are definitely intended to deceive or to devalue the encyclopaedia. People can be real and not significant (A7), or hoaxes (G3). They aren't made up - unless, of course, fictional characters that aren't in published works. (Real published fictional characters have to go to WP:PROD or WP:AFD if they don't deserve articles. A real person can't be made up, but can be not significant or the centre of a hoax article. (Or, of course, may be notable...) A11 may seem vague, but if you ask yourself 'Could this be real?' and get the answer 'Yes, but who the hell cares', and it's not something solid (or liquid even), it is probably an A11. There will probably be kids, students, inventors or mathematicians involved. In its first days, basketball would have been a made up - I mean, who is going to take any notice of kids throwing a soccer ball into a peach basket nailed to a wall? It'll never catch on... But when the evidence is there, so will be the article. You're not the first to get A11 wrong - and you won't be the last. OK? Best wishes for whatever you celebrate (and if you don't, hard luck...) Peridon (talk) 17:34, 22 December 2015 (UTC)

@Peridon: for whatever it's worth this article ended up being speedily deleted via the A11 tag since the subject in question was indeed made-up. Cubbie15fan (talk) 03:33, 28 December 2015 (UTC)

Robert-Poirier Stadium article[edit]

Hi there,

I just looked at the Robert-Poirier Stadium article. The article reads as English, but the references are still in French. Sorry, didn't notice those. Will fix them up. I had to do some other stuff so I ended the editing session on the article.

Endo999 (talk) 00:24, 23 December 2015 (UTC)

No problem, I've also added a more accurate maintenance tag until the changes are made to the article. Cubbie15fan (talk) 16:16, 23 December 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for that. I use the Content Translation system to translate the articles and it doesn't allow you to edit the references (that I know of). As such you often have to change the parameters of the CITE tags (like from 'titre=' to 'title='). I usually do this, but this time the references didn't use the CITE system and they actually were hand written. So I missed this. Thanks for pointing it out. Endo999 (talk) 23:16, 23 December 2015 (UTC)

Colliery Stadium Edit[edit]

Hello, Cubbie15fan.

You recently edited the page Colliery Stadium and added a stub template. This page already contained two stub templates categorizing it into two more specific stub categories, making your addition of the Category:Stubs template unnecessary. In the future, please make sure that you check to make sure an article is not already marked as a stub before marking it as one yourself.

Thanks! Clone200 (talk) 20:04, 23 December 2015 (UTC)

Ah thanks, my bad. Cubbie15fan (talk) 20:06, 23 December 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for cleaning up the Athletics section last week. I noticed that among your deletions was the "official athletics logo." Was the deletion on purpose and if so, why? Thanks. Contributor321 (talk) 02:05, 31 December 2015 (UTC)

Removing the logo was unintended, thanks for catching this. I have since added the logo back to the main CMU page. Cubbie15fan (talk) 14:38, 31 December 2015 (UTC)

Declined speedy deletion[edit]

Hi Cubbie15fan, I just wanted to let you know that I have declined your speedy deletion nomination of Columbus Unified High School because WP:CSD#A7 doesn't apply to schools. High Schools in particular are nearly always considered notable. Sarahj2107 (talk) 21:00, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

@Sarahj2107: do you mind providing some more context as to why WP:CSD#A7 would not apply to a school?
From the A7 criteria - "This applies to any article about a real person, individual animal(s), organization, web content or organized event that does not indicate why its subject is important or significant, with the exception of educational institutions" (emphasis not mine).

Nomination of Iowa Hawkeyes football series records and three others for deletion[edit]

Cubbie15fan, because of the interest you expressed in a closely related topic during the discussion @ Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Arizona Wildcats football series records, I am notifying you that a new discussion is taking place as to whether the following articles are suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether they should be deleted:

  1. Iowa Hawkeyes football series records;
  2. Alabama Crimson Tide football series records;
  3. Michigan Wolverines football series records; and
  4. Michigan State Spartans football series records.

These articles will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Iowa Hawkeyes football series records until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the articles during the discussion, including to improve the articles to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the articles. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 10:08, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

Matt Murton[edit]

Here is my stance. It has been two days since the first reporting of him signing with the Cubs. Multiple media outlets reporting. How often do you see multiple reports after multiple days, and they all turn out to be false. It is not that often. How often when you have MLB.com, FoxSports, etc... , making an article about Matt Murtton, or someone else, and it turns out nothing happens, not that often, rarely even at all. All I am saying, not just about Matt Murtton, is when there is enough evidence to prove that something has happened, and it has been more than 1 day, that page needs to be updated. If anything, a discussion needs to be made for this problem all over the Wikipedia website. The Baseball Guy (talk) 02:55, 6 February 2016 (UTC)

While this deal has been reported by many media outlets, it has not been officially announced by the Cubs. Because Wikipedia is not a crystal ball we cannot assume the reports are accurate or that the deal will be finalized. A good, recent example where a reported deal fell through before being finalized is the case of Aroldis Chapman. A deal was reportedly struck between the Reds and Dodgers to send Chapman to LA, however the deal fell through and Chapman is now a member of the Yankees. If you're ever in doubt of whether a deal is official, often times good place to check are the team's Twitter feed or their transactions page. Hope this helps. Cubbie15fan (talk) 17:28, 6 February 2016 (UTC)
It is not incorrect information. If you have me blocked, I will appeal. Simple as that. What I did is not Vandalism. Simple enough, you are the only one to have a problem with Matt Murtton. If there is a change in reports, then change the page. More often than not, numerous reports are usually correct. Aroldis Chapman was an exception, news came out after that changed things. I believe this policy needs to be changed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by The Baseball Guy (talkcontribs) 04:47, 8 February 2016 (UTC)
Here's the thing: As you indicated there are exceptions to reported events and until transactions are reported as official by the team, we cannot speculate and assume the deal will become official. WP is an encyclopedia of things that have happened, not of events that will more than likely happen.
Because WP is a collaborative effort among its users, discussion is indeed encouraged. However, speculative information can never be included in an encyclopedia. I recommend taking a look at the following page dedicated to the guidelines on this particular issue Wikipedia:WikiProject Sports/Handling sports transactions. Again, hope this helps.

Orphaned non-free image File:Illinois Victory Badge.png[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Illinois Victory Badge.png. 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. 🍀 Corkythehornetfan 🍀 18:31, 9 March 2016 (UTC)

@Corkythehornetfan: Why in the world would you remove File:Illinois Victory Badge.png from the two articles it pertains to, and then request the file to be deleted? The Illinois Victory Shield is an official secondary logo used by the Illinois Athletic Department and serves as a means to identity Illinois athletics. Cubbie15fan (talk) 18:49, 9 March 2016 (UTC)
I removed it from the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign article because it violates WP:NFCC#8 and WP:NFCC#10c. It is a secondary logo (WP:NFCC#8) for Athletics and is a non-free image that doesn't have a valid rationale (WP:NFCC#10c)... which also leads me to WP:NFCC#UUI §17 and WP:NFCC#1. The main Athletics logo (a Public Domain image) is used in the university article and WP:NFCC#1 states that the usage of secondary logo is equivalent to the usage of the primary logo. We don't use secondary logos unless it's a wordmark that has to be used in articles that the main non-free image can't be used in. When I browse search engines, I only see the "I" block logo – the most commonly found image for Illinois Fighting Illini. I only find the shield being used on the athletics website.
When it was removed from the articles, it became orphaned... which is why it was up for deletion. I will remove it from the university article, but will continue to discuss with you on the usage at the athletics article if you wish. 🍀 Corkythehornetfan 🍀 22:58, 10 March 2016 (UTC)
And this is why I find WP irritating lately...seems like a bunch of work to enforce a bunch of rules, regulations, and red tape all to determine whether a logo of a college athletic department should be included as encyclopedic material. I know rules are rules, but seems like a waste of time in my opinion. Nothing against you personally, just to clarify. Cubbie15fan (talk) 23:42, 10 March 2016 (UTC)
I understand... I was where you were just a few short months ago! 🍀 Corkythehornetfan 🍀 02:29, 11 March 2016 (UTC)

Hello Cubbie15fan. Being relatively new to wikipedia, I am quite unsure of the tags added to our article. (Original Research and Excessive Intricate Detail) I have read the wikipage on these but am unsure of what it is talking about and how to fix the problem. Any information, critic or insight in our page on these matters (and if anything else you suggest) would be extremely helpful. I have worked quite a lot on this page and would definitely be disappointed if something were to happen to it.
