Notable Potential Candidates, 2008 Presidential Election[edit]

I have added a "{{prod}}" template to the article Notable Potential Candidates, 2008 Presidential Election, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but I don't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and I've explained why in the deletion notice (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may contest 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. Also, please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. 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.

If you have uploaded other images, please verify that you have provided copyright information for them as well.

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Magnet award.gif)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Magnet award.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) 12:31, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

Sources[edit]

You might be interested in reading WP:MEDRS, a guide to choosing appropriate sources for medicine-related articles. In general, a hospital website is considered a weak source for scientific or medical facts (better perhaps than nothing, but not very strong). It would be best, when possible, to use strong sources, such as medical textbooks (some are available at books.google.com) or scientific reviews (many are available through pubmed.gov). WhatamIdoing (talk) 20:58, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

I agree with WhatamIdoing, and will point out to you again the need to choose more appropriate sources. However well written and accredited, information pages from hospital websites or HMOs, or even pages at the NIH, are tertiary sources. On Wikipedia the medical community gives primacy to high-quality secondary sources, preferably from high impact peer reviewed journals.
Before making any further edits along these lines, please respond to this message with any further queries you might have about the policy. JFW | T@lk 20:22, 25 October 2008 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 15[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited The Poetry Society of New York, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Portland. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

How to Request an undeletion of a valid image.

Please help me with... The page in question is "The Poetry Society of New York." I want to request an undelete. There is no copyright. The people who founded The Poetry Society of New York gave me written permission to use it because there was no legal claim to it an it can be used by the public. Please advise?

richardw 16:26, 19 March 2017 (UTC)

The image was uploaded to the Wikimedia Commons; if you want to contest the deletion, you will need to do so over there. That said, if "there is no copyright", we'd need evidence to that effect. I rather doubt the logo of an organization established in 2015 was first published before 1923; thus we would need to see evindence that the copyright holder released it into the public domain or under a free license that allows everybody to re-use and modify the logo for any purpose, including commercial purposes. Going by the deleting admin's comment, there was a claim that it wasn't copyrighted because it was too simple to meet the threshold of originality; the admin disagreed with that claim, and after checking the Society's website (presumably it was the book-to-bird logo?) so do I. WP:Requesting copyright permission explains how to demonstrate that the copyright holder has released an image under an appropriate license. Huon (talk) 17:49, 19 March 2017 (UTC)
