Orphaned non-free media (Image:BREWCO USPS badge3 copy.gif)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:BREWCO USPS badge3 copy.gif. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media 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 media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' 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 "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BetacommandBot (talk) 20:36, 15 December 2007 (UTC)

Are these two more articles that should be moved on January 1st? Did you get my email about admin nomination for you? Royalbroil 17:32, 16 December 2007 (UTC)

So what do you think about my suggestions to you? They are, of course, suggestions. If you want me to nominate you I will, but I wanted you to consider my thoughts first. Please respond to my email. Royalbroil 17:50, 16 December 2007 (UTC)

re-prod of Hispanic Racing Team[edit]

I have removed the {{prod}} tag from Hispanic Racing Team, which you proposed for deletion, because its deletion has previously been contested or viewed as controversial. Proposed deletion is not for controversial deletions. For this reason, it is best not to propose deletion of articles that have previously been de-{{prod}}ed, even by the article creator, or which have previously been listed on Wikipedia:Articles for deletion. If you still think the article should be deleted, please don't add the {{prod}} template back to the article, but feel free to list it at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion. Thanks! -Gwguffey (talk) 07:21, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

So you know, I would comment to keep it if I found it at AfD. Royalbroil 14:07, 1 January 2008 (UTC)
That's different if they never even raced. The article doesn't say that. Why don't you nominate it for deletion at WP:AFD after you add that fact to the article? Royalbroil 14:36, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

Sam Belnavis[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Sam Belnavis, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done for the following reason:

Barely any encyclopedic notability, much less content in general

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not meet basic Wikipedia criteria may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as an appropriate article, and if you can indicate why the subject of this article is appropriate, you may contest the tagging. To do this, add {{hangon}} on the top of the page and leave a note on the article's talk page explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm its subject's notability under the guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this.

Speedy deletion of Jiffy Lube[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Jiffy Lube, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article seems to be blatant advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become an encyclopedia article. Please read our the guidelines on spam as well as the Wikipedia:Business' FAQ for more information.

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 (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's 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. ~**_mustafarox_**~ (talk) 17:51, 12 January 2008 (UTC)

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Saintshadow2.gif[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Saintshadow2.gif. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid. Please read the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content carefully, then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies for fair use. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it will be deleted within a couple of days according to our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot (talk) 04:57, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use Image:KimCrosby05.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:KimCrosby05.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Rettetast (talk) 16:24, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

Rollback[edit]

You have been granted with the rollback permission on the basis of your recent effort on dealing with vandalism. The rollback is a revert tool which can lessens the strains that normal javascripts such as twinkle put on the Wikipedia servers. You will find that you will revert faster through the rollback than through the normal reversion tools such as javascripts and the undo feature, which means that you could save time especially when reverting very large articles such as the George W. Bush page. To use it, simply click the link which should look like [rollback] (which should appear unbolded if you have twinkle installed) on the lastest diff page. The rollback link will also appear on the history page beside the edit summary of the lastest edit. For more information, you may refer to this page, alternatively, you may also find this tutorial on rollback helpful. Yamamoto Ichiro 会話 20:33, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

Also, please remember to update your capacity (5th table variable) in the form of a fraction (eg. 2/3 means you are currently coaching 2 students, and could accept 1 more student). Thank you.

Wikipedia:Requests for adminship/D-Day 3[edit]

D-Day, I am sorry to inform you that I have closed your RfA as unlikely to reach consensus: there was an 3:10 ratio against the request at the time of processing. However, don't be downhearted by this: I can assure you that your contributions are both highly welcome and valued—many editors have failed their first request for adminship, only to sail through later and become well-respected administrators.

You may wish to review the Guide to RfA before submitting future nominations, as well as well as here and here, both of which list the more highly-supported RfAs. Additionally, admin coaching is a useful aid for editors interested in becoming an administrator. If I can assist you at all, please do not hesitate to contact me. Kindest regards, AGK (contact) 17:39, 5 March 2008 (UTC)

Bobby Hamilton image[edit]

You uploaded a fair use image on the article that I think should be removed as it is replacable. Instead of nominating it and you getting some sterile template, I thought that you should have it speedy deleted with {{db-author}}. I keep finding flickr images of older racecars. I find more than what I have time to upload! I'm uploading a set of all of the 1997 racecars that raced at Pocono in 1997. I can find more but I stopped looking. Let me know if you want the task. I have over 30 contacts at flickr that are happy to have their pictures uploaded. Well over 50% of flickr contributors are happy to have their images recognized at Wikipedia if you just ask.

I mean that this one Image:Cup car 55.jpg needs to be deleted. Speedy it? You should respond below my next question so that I have something to point to in case someone asks. Or would you rather I do the IFD standard nomination and you get to receive some bot message? Royalbroil 19:56, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

I ran across another one. I'm sure a bot message will follow. Can I have your permission to speedy delete any fair use image of yours on sight if I replaced it with a free use image? Royalbroil 02:17, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use Image:RandyTolsmaTruck.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:RandyTolsmaTruck.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Do you want to opt out of receiving this notice? Rettetast (talk) 20:06, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

Sneaky vandal[edit]

I found the extensive amount of sneaky vandalism and misinformation that Dan Wilson, Jr. (talk · contribs) and Dan's IP 69.207.39.37 (talk · contribs) placed in NASCAR-related articles. Fact checking at racing-reference.info found all of it to be bogus, and I have reverted all of it. Placing misinformation is disruptive and disruption is a blockable offense. The username could easily be permanently blocked since it is used only for vandalism. Let me know if it continues or post at WP:AIV. Be suspicious, and feel free to revert either contributor if they continue posting bad information.

I cross-posted this on your talk page after posting at WP:NASCAR since I know you watch for this stuff. I saw that you reverted some of this vandalism. Royalbroil 21:18, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:MorganDollar logo.gif)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:MorganDollar logo.gif. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media 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 media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' 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 "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 05:02, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Cup_car_44.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Cup_car_44.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' 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 "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Do you want to opt out of receiving this notice? Rettetast (talk) 19:01, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Steve Addington[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Steve Addington, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

No apparent indication of notability.

All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because, even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. Oo7565 (talk) 02:24, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

I fixed it, it look pretty now. I found almost enough to make a DYK - almost a 5x expansion. Royalbroil 14:44, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

DYK for Steve Addington[edit]

Updated DYK query On February 15, 2009, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article Steve Addington, which you created or substantially expanded. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the Did you know? talk page.

NASCAR might have ostracized him at the end of his life, but Wikipedia doesn't! Royalbroil 17:47, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

DYK Article you created[edit]

Hi D-Day. My name is Ched (as will be obvious with my sig .. lol). I recently expanded an article you created Rex White and nominated it for a WP:DYK. The hook I used was "At 5'4" 135 lbs., Rex White was the smallest person to ever win a NASCAR championship. It's the first DYK I ever attempted, so if you want to check it (it's under the March 12th section), and change anything then that's fine. Just thought I'd let you know. — Ched ~ (yes?)/© 19:02, 15 March 2009 (UTC)

Admin Coaching[edit]

Hi! I saw your name on the list of admin coaches, and was wondering if you were still interested. I know that the project is only semi-active. If you aren't interested, could you please update the status page? Thanks, Genius101Guestbook 21:02, 7 April 2009 (UTC).

I just saw the mental health box on your user page. If you don't feel like doing this, it's no problem at all. Thanks, Genius101Guestbook 21:05, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

Notification[edit]

One of your subpages has been brought up at User talk:Jimbo Wales#Something you might want to look at.... - ALLST☆R echo 20:13, 12 April 2009 (UTC)

regarding this[edit]

regarding this Jimmy has seen it now and it should be removed as it is not correct for an encyclopedia. I will do it if you want . regards (Off2riorob (talk) 20:45, 12 April 2009 (UTC))

Dude, calm down. That page has been up for three years, and you're not Wikipedia's self-appointed censor. Jimmy Wales is perfectly capable of deleting it if he finds it offensive. – iridescent 21:13, 12 April 2009 (UTC)
no I am deff not a censor. but the page has been publically outed today and jimmy has seen it and yes he is not offended but the article does not belong in open space .

It has been suggested to me by an admin to ask you to insert {{db-g7}} on the article for speedy delete or you could just put it back somewhere private.regards (Off2riorob (talk) 21:22, 12 April 2009 (UTC))


FYI, Off2riorob nominated your Jimbo subpage for deletion at Wikipedia:Miscellany for deletion/User:D-Day/The REAL Jimbo Wales Story. He should have notified you. However, it has since been closed as Snowball Keep. - ALLST☆R echo 01:58, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use Image:Dgilliland.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:Dgilliland.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria.

DYK[edit]

I'm at 99 DYKs now and I want my 100th to be something special. I'm thinking about doing a large 5x expansion to some major NASCAR driver. Nothing is jumping out to me as being something that needs huge expansion. I spent over an hour looking at the stub and start class NASCAR articles and I didn't come up with much. The best thing that I could find it Banjo Matthews needs it real bad. I was hoping to take some big name NASCAR driver of Harry Gant's caliber. Has any article ever jumped out at you? Royalbroil 02:39, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

My friend User:Ched Davis had a great suggestion. He suggested David Pearson. I want a big name driver, not a so-so team. Another one that I found was Tim Flock, that would be a better candidate. I love the thought about having a monkey riding along in a race car causing the driver to fall from a second-place finish to a third-place finish because the monkey went nuts! Maybe I'll make Flock my 101st DYK or the 100th DYK that I actually wrote (subtract out the 10 nomination-only DYKs). Thanks for your thoughts! Royalbroil 00:52, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

NASCAR Rookie of the Year[edit]

I added the table of the 2009 class because it was the last race and I put the drivers to get that sorted and not needed to be added later on. Plus, I put the leaders under bold and under parenthesses (Current Leaderr). Also they mentioned that Logano, Allgaier, and Sauter have clinched it on SSPED and ESPN coverage, so that's why I added it so, if you could ate lease undo the change please. --Talladega87 (talk)

Wild Sports Marketing is not advertising themselves on KUM's car, they are working for the team in a search for sponsorship. I would appreciate it if you would fix this error.

Gunselman Motorsports[edit]

Hello.I am the author of Gunselman Motorsports. I noticed that you are trying to merge my article with Larry Gunselman's. I do not understand why you would want to do that. Both articles have planty of notability to stand alone. I was wondering what your logic was. Please explain your point of view to me. Thank you--Johncoracing48 (talk) 19:05, 10 January 2010 (UTC)

The team will be competing "full time" next year. They are a legit Sprint Cup team. I don't see what the problem is with keeping it as a stand alone article. It seems strong enough to me. I haven't had any problems with spam. Honestly, I think it would be a waste of time to move it. Eventually, it will be strong enough to stand alone by your standards. I think it is fine as it is. It also makes your List of NASCAR teams article look better. It would be the only Cup team without it's own article.--Johncoracing48 (talk) 19:33, 10 January 2010 (UTC)

I agree with John, and I have left a comment opposing the merge. You haven't been doing proposed merges right, for you missed several steps. You can find them at Wikipedia:Proposed mergers. Since someone objected, this is now a controversial merge. So you need to list it at "Proposed Mergers" if you want to continue the merger proposal. I expected that you would have known about things like this before now. I'm puzzled why you keep trying to delete articles about notable topics like smaller NASCAR teams and start/park drivers. Apparently you're not seeing what the rest of Wikipedia is doing. I have already promoted a DYK article about a Major League baseball player who pitched one inning (or was it one/no outs). These start and park drivers are just as notable as this baseball player was. Royalbroil 03:33, 11 January 2010 (UTC)

Elton John[edit]

Hi. I'm contacting you as a significant contributor to Elton John. I am concerned that such a high profile article on a living person is so poorly sourced. It is a matter of priority that statements are sourced. See Wikipedia:Biographies of living persons. Quotations from Elton John or any other person must be closely cited, as per Wikipedia:Quotations. If reliable sources cannot be found then all contentious material should be removed - [1]. It is better for us to have no material at all than to have incorrect, misleading or potentially libelous material. Will you help to source the article? SilkTork *YES! 10:59, 2 February 2010 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Waterloo Middle School[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

An editor has nominated Waterloo Middle School, an article which you have created or worked on, for deletion. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Waterloo Middle School and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to address the nominator's concerns but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate. Thank you. Eastmain (talkcontribs) 02:53, 4 March 2010 (UTC)

Admin Coaching: Reconfirmation[edit]

I was looking through the coaches at Wikipedia:Admin_coaching/Status and saw that there are a lot under "reconfirmation".

Could you let me know if you are still interesting in being involved with Admin Coaching, or if you would prefer to have your name removed from the "reconfirmation" list. If you want to be involved, could you please move your entry from "Reconfirmation" to "Active" and indicate how many students you would be willing to have (obviously, if you are actively coaching at the moment, then please indicate this!)

If I do not hear from you within a week, I will assume that you would like to have your name removed from the list of coaches.

Geneva City School District[edit]

Hi! I noticed you posted stuff.

Please think about what an encyclopedic article would look like. These long lists of former administrators are not worthy and are not encyclopedic. Please look around at Royal National College for the Blind for what a school article would look like.

Also do not mention private schools in the article. They are not a part of the school district at all. Catholic schools may be mentioned in the article of the archdiocese that they are a part of. WhisperToMe (talk) 01:55, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

Waterloo High School (New York)[edit]

Thanks for your contributions to the Waterloo High School (New York) article. Unfortunately, many of them—such as the bell schedule and the lists of former administrators—aren't appropriate for an encylcopedic article. Please make sure you read the article talk page, where I have spelled out why they are inappropriate with links to appropriate Wikipedia and Schools Wikiproject policies and guidelines. When you reverted my removals, you also removed a references tag (the article has zero references) and restored incorrect subheading titles. Additionally, not all parameters of the infobox need to be utilized. For instance, the superintendent section is so the box can be used for school district articles while the street address parameter is one option over the location parameter (both shouldn't be used together). Take a look at Plano Senior High School, a featured school article, which will give you an idea of what the Waterloo High School article should look like eventually. Please also make sure you read and become familiar with Wikiproject Schools article guidelines. Joining that project wouldn't be a bad idea either if you are interested in editing this and other school articles. Any questions, please ask through user or article talk pages. Thanks! --JonRidinger (talk) 16:01, 1 June 2010 (UTC)

Just a friendly reminder to please refrain from placing the lists of former principals and former administrators into high school and school district articles like you repeatedly have on the Waterloo High School (New York) article. Those lists are not appropriate for Wikipedia articles and will continue to be removed as the violate Wikipedia policies on content as well as the Schools Wikiproject guidelines. If you would like to keep the information, I would consider making a sub page of your user page (User:D-Day/Waterloo) as a place to store it. --JonRidinger (talk) 22:14, 17 December 2011 (UTC)

Reviewer permission[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged revisions, underwent a two-month trial which ended on 15 August 2010. Its continued use is still being discussed by the community, you are free to participate in such discussions. Many articles still have pending changes protection applied, however, and the ability to review pending changes continues to be of use.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under level 1 pending changes and edits made by non-reviewers to level 2 pending changes protected articles (usually high traffic articles). Pending changes was applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

For the guideline on reviewing, see Wikipedia:Reviewing. Being granted reviewer rights doesn't grant you status nor change how you can edit articles even with pending changes. The general help page on pending changes can be found here, and the general policy for the trial can be found here.

Speedy deletion nomination of Aero Exhaust[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 Aero Exhaust 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 see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion," which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate). Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page 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 page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. -- Alan Liefting (talk) - 06:10, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:NASCAR BuschSeries RockinghamSC CarlLongFlips.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:NASCAR BuschSeries RockinghamSC CarlLongFlips.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.

Proposed deletion of List of ARCA drivers[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article List of ARCA drivers has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Outdated, indiscriminate list that duplicates Category:ARCA drivers

While all 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.

The deletion discussion doesn't mean you did something wrong. In fact, other editors may have useful suggestions on how you can continue editing and improving List of ARCA drivers, which I encourage you to do. If you have any questions, feel free to ask at the Help Desk.

New York state school districts[edit]

Please stop adding extensive lists of former administrators and bell schedules for individual schools to school district articles. In the end, you are wasting not only your own time by doing this, but my time (or any other editor's) as well in having to go through and remove these over and over. Become familiar with the Wikipedia Schools Project, in particular, the article guidelines. Lists of former administrators are not appropriate and serve no real encyclopedic purpose for the article. Wikipedia articles are to inform about the subject (which is the district itself) in a thorough, but still general, way. They are not to be overly detailed and specific, especially in trivial things like former administrators. The only former administrators (and by that measure former teachers and students) who should be listed are those who are notable. The best rule of thumb for notability is if a Wikipedia article exists for the person. If so, that person should be listed in the appropriate article (generally, notable alumni are listed in the school article and not the district article). Also, you do not need to use academic titles when referring to administrators (such as "Mr. John Smith" or "Dr. Emmett Brown". Instead it would just be John Smith and Emmett Brown). I outlined some of this at Talk:Waterloo Central School District#Information. If you have any questions, please ask! Thanks! --JonRidinger (talk) 01:07, 25 May 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Blanket2.jpg[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Blanket2.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F9 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted images or text borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but 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 yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. SuperMarioMan 22:21, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:Cope-contreras.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Cope-contreras.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that this media item is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails the first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media item could be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media item is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the file discussion page, write the reason why this media item is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. VernoWhitney (talk) 14:36, 25 October 2012 (UTC)

Page moves[edit]

Please do not move Phil Parsons Racing to Humphrey-Smith Racing. PPR is NOT HSM. HSM is a team affiliated with TriStar, an entirely new team; PPR's history is included in the existing article. Whitney Motorsports merged with PPR, but Whitney's history is not PPR's. Your moves of these articles have been reverted twice; further undiscussed moves could move into disruptive editing territory. If you think the articles need to be moved, you need to use WP:RM, however as the articles currently do reflect the correct histories of their teams, I would suggest leaving them as is. - The Bushranger One ping only 10:14, 27 March 2013 (UTC)

New elementary school articles[edit]

Hello,

I noticed you recently recreated the page William J. Grabiarz School of Excellence, an article about an elementary/middle school in New York. The article was the subject of an AfD that was closed as redirect because 2 people agreed it did not have independent notability at the time. Furthermore, you created International School (Buffalo, New York), also an elementary school in New York.

The established consensus for elementary/middle school articles is that most of them are not independently notable unless they have a clear claim to notability that has been referenced in significant coverage from reliable sources. Do you think you could clarify on how these subjects meet notability guidelines?

If they aren't notable, we should probably redirect them to Buffalo Public Schools.

D-Day, there is no way in which those long lists of assistant principals and other personnel (in East High School (Buffalo, New York), for instance) is of encyclopedic value.

In addition, your talk page is over 200 k long, making it almost impossible to type a message, so I am giong to cut this short. Please consider archiving it.

Speedy deletion nomination of School 81[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 School 81 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. Roberticus (talk) 22:41, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

The article NASCAR Racing 1999 Edition has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

10 years of being tagged, without adding sources to establish notability? Time to go!

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages 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 page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist.

Articles containing too much detail[edit]

Hi, whilst randonly fixing typos I stumbled across a few articles on North American schools which I discovered contained a huge excess of trivial and irrelevant detail. I started to remove the worst of these (such as tables of bell schedules throughout the day). I then noticed that a few of the most bloated of these articles had been expanded by yourself. So, as a matter of courtesy, I thought I'd drop you a note by way of explanation. You've clearly put in a lot of effort recently, and you should be applauded for that, but I fear that too much intricate detail actually weakens the value of these articles. I've not deleted the huge year by year lists of adminstrators and other trivial matter that I've found in some of them, but I do believe that deleting wikitables of timings of when classes change actually made the article more accessible. I think users should be referred to school websites for such matters, especially as they're likely to change from year to year, and editors can't be expected to keep on top of such minutiae, so I hope you'll agree and understand the reason for my edits/deletions.

There's a useful and brief discussion on this at WP:EXCESSDETAIL and also at WP:INDISCRIMINATE if you're interested. I also noted that some of the articles on school districts (e.g. Cheektowaga Central School District) duplicated and hugely expanded on content on shorter and better articles (in my view) on individual schools (e.g. Cheektowaga Central High School), which I think is really the wrong way round. I've no idea if these were your edits, and it doesn't matter either way, but if you have an interest in these articles, you might like to consider merging some of the content and moving it over, and flagging that up that there is another main article on that topic. Hoping this all makes sense, kind regards Nick Moyes (talk) 02:32, 18 May 2017 (UTC)
