Again, welcome! --OnoremDil 22:51, 18 February 2009 (UTC) {{help me}} How does one cite his references? Also, how does one create a table of information with a band's name, picture, and information such as origin, labels, current band members, etc. like one on blink-182's page, for instance?

For detailed information in citing sources, see WP:CITE. For a quick visual explanation, click show on the template below:
As for the "table" you refer to, that is an "infobox". Go to the Blink-182 article, click edit this page, and one of the first things you'll see is text that begins "{{Infobox Musical artist..." That whole things is a templatem which you can copy and fill in the parameters for a different band's information, or it may be easier for you to work from a generic blank copy of the code from {{Infobox Musical artist}}.

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Check Your Status 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 a band or musician, 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, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for musical topics.

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 that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, 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 would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you. ukexpat (talk) 03:45, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
