AfD nomination of HelpMaticProHTML[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

I have nominated HelpMaticProHTML, an article that you created, for deletion. I do not think that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/HelpMaticProHTML. Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time.

An article you created maybe deleted soon: Tools which can help you[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

The article you created, HelpMaticProHTML maybe deleted from Wikipedia.

There is an ongoing debate about whether your article should be deleted here:

The faster your respond, the better chance the article you created can be saved. This is because deletion debates only stay open for a few days, and the first comments are usually the most important.

There are several tools and other editors who can help you keep the page from being deleted forever:

  1. You can list the page up for deletion on Article Rescue Squadron. If you need help listing your page, add a comment on the Article Rescue Squadron talk page.
  2. You can request a mentor to help explain to you all of the complex rules that editors use to get a page deleted, here: Wikipedia:Adopt-a-User. But don't wait for a mentor to respond on the deletion page.
  3. When try to delete a page, veteran editors love to use a lot of rule acronyms. Don't let these acronyms intimidate you.
    Here is a list of your own acronyms you can use yourself: WP:Deletion debate acronyms which may support the page you created being kept.
    Acronyms in deletion debates are sometimes incorrectly used, or ignore rules or exceptions.
  4. You can merge the article into a larger or better established article on the same topic.

If your page is deleted, you still have many options available. Good luck! travb (talk) 03:24, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 02:08, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

Hi Dskirk, thanks for the response. Here's the issue. All articles on Wikipedia have to prove how they are notable enough to be included, since we can't include every piece of software ever made. The way you prove this is by finding reliable, third-party independent media sources which cover the software in a non-trivial matter, like a well-known computer magazine or website that has decided the software is well-known enough to write about it. You then include this source in the article and notability is established. Bullzeye (Ring for Service) 02:18, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

Sorry to hear you couldn't find any 3rd-party sources, but that was what I expected. Just remember: you can make an article on pretty much any topic at all that you can find 3rd-party sources on. That's the key though, gotta have those sources. If you'd like, you can copy the article to a sub-page of your userpage if you'd like to keep it. If you ever find a good 3rd party source you can then just pop it in and re-create it in mainspace. Bullzeye (Ring for Service) 12:48, 6 January 2009 (UTC)
I went ahead and copied the page to your userspace for you. It can now be found at User:Dskirk/HelpMaticProHTML if you'd like to keep it. Bullzeye (Ring for Service) 12:55, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:Hmphscr.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Hmphscr.png. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the file description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

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 '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 uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Radiant chains (talk) 10:20, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for October 5[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Jim Corl, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Roman. 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.

Proposed deletion of Jim Corl[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Jim Corl has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

County legislators, in the absence of some other achievement that would make them generally notable, are not notable politicians.

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

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

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

File permission problem with File:Jim Corl, legislator for district 3, Onondaga County, New York.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Jim Corl, legislator for district 3, Onondaga County, New York.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file has agreed to release it under the given license.

If you are the copyright holder for this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. You may wish to read Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Kelly hi! 07:33, 13 May 2016 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited The Bat!, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Microsoft Exchange (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).
