Speedy deletion of Prodiance[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Prodiance 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 company or corporation, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not assert the subject's importance or significance 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 companies and corporations.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the article (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. -- WebHamster 01:02, 17 November 2007 (UTC)

You clearly state that you are the "vice preseident of marketing" of this company, yet you still created a wikipedia "article" on your own company? Are you aware that this sort of editing is HIGHLY discouraged? Have you read our conflict of interest page? WP:COI?-Andrew c [talk] 01:18, 17 November 2007 (UTC)

I see your point, but I can guarantee you that 99.9% of your company page have been submitted by marketing people. I am however, trying to be objective and elminiate marketing-speak about the company. Will edit accordingly, or if you wish I can have our CEO submit the page?

WP:OTHERCRAPEXISTS. Two wrongs don't make a right. Just because you believe other companies have submitted "articles" by marketing people does not make those actions appropriate. It would be just as bad if the CEO of the company created an article about the company. In order for a company or organization to have an article on wikipedia, it must meet specific guidelines outlined at WP:ORG. There has to be multiple, non-trivial independent sources that cover the company. You did not cite a single source. I'm not trying to be harsh, but what you created was simply an advertisement, not an encyclopedia article. If your company is really that notable, then one day, someone who doesn't get paid by the company will write an article about the company. Until that day comes, I would suggest that you not recreate an article about the company you work for. As an individual, you are MORE than welcome to contribute to improving any other article on wikipedia. And if you know of other articles that do not cite sources, that do not meet out WP:ORG notability guidelines, and were written by paid marketing employees, please point them out and I'd be glad to delete them as well. Thanks for understanding.-Andrew c [talk] 02:21, 17 November 2007 (UTC)
