I am new to Wikipedia( on the back end). I was wondering if you would be interested in helping me with a company page. It was originally deleted by moderators years ago for spam I think, anyways, it would be a sizeable submission that could have your name on it. I am helping Primacy ( go to Real Canadian Superstore and redded out is Primacy) get an informational page up. I have several reliable sources like Reuters, MSN, Bloomberg, Yahoo, community newspapers etc.
Please let me know is this interests you.
I can try - I dont know how much time I will have. Pretty busy these days. Send me the sorces and the content you are thinking to upload and I will see what I can do Factsonlyplease39 (talk) 08:49, 23 September 2013 (UTC)
Hi there! As you might know, I recently created the Wikipedia article for Chip Smith via Articles for Creation and I've been keeping an eye on the page while sorting out an image.
I just saw that you had uploaded an image to Commons and added this to the article, however, I too have uploaded the same image (although cropped to remove some excess space at the top) and have been working with The Glover Park Group to follow through the process to get the image rights confirmed. Since the OTRS request has been made (specifically linking to the image that I uploaded), I'd like to ask two things:
- Please can you request deletion of the file you uploaded?
- Can you add the version I uploaded to Commons to Chip's article in place of your upload from today?
Hope this all makes sense, it's not a situation I've come across before but I think that deleting the image you uploaded today will be the simplest path. Thanks, 16912 Rhiannon (Talk · COI) 17:41, 5 February 2014 (UTC)
- Sure, I will try to do this. Happy I can help. Factsonlyplease39 (talk) 17:50, 5 February 2014 (UTC)
- Thanks so much! Happily OTRS has just marked the version I uploaded as having received permission to release under the CC-BY-3.0 license, so it's good to go if you're able to add it into the article. 16912 Rhiannon (Talk · COI) 18:03, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

Hello, I'm Dl2000. I noticed that you made an edit concerning content related to a living person on Alex Cartana, but that you didn’t support your changes with a citation to a reliable source, so I removed it. Wikipedia has a strict policy concerning how we write about living people, so please help us keep such articles accurate. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. Dl2000 (talk) 02:55, 15 May 2014 (UTC)
Please do not remove content or templates from pages on Wikipedia, as you did to Alex Cartana, without giving a valid reason for the removal in the edit summary. Your content removal does not appear constructive and has been reverted. Please make use of the sandbox if you'd like to experiment with test edits. Thank you. Dl2000 (talk) 02:55, 15 May 2014 (UTC)
Speedy deletion nomination of Drama High (novel)
A tag has been placed on Drama High (novel), requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become encyclopedic. Please read the guidelines on spam and Wikipedia:FAQ/Organizations for more information.
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. LorChat 09:32, 18 June 2014 (UTC)
Deletion discussion about The Great Wall of Lucy Wu
I wanted to let you know that there's a discussion about whether The Great Wall of Lucy Wu should be deleted. Your comments are welcome at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/The Great Wall of Lucy Wu .
If you're new to the process, articles for deletion is a group discussion (not a vote!) that usually lasts seven days. If you need it, there is a guide on how to contribute. Last but not least, you are highly encouraged to continue improving the article; just be sure not to remove the tag about the deletion nomination from the top.

Hey, just kind of wanted to give you a head's up on stuff. I wanted to warn you against using merchant sources on Wikipedia. Merchant sources such as Amazon and Barnes & Nobles is considered to be inappropriate and they are almost never usable as a reliable source. The only time I've seen them as usable is when someone is quoting a review or interview done by the site (as opposed to general reviews) and even then, they're viewed as suspect since the stand to gain financially from people purchasing via the review/interview. We usually list those in the external links section if it's a particularly interesting interview. Goodreads is pretty much considered to be unusable as a reliable source because it can be edited by almost anyone. You do have to request to be a librarian, but it isn't exactly overwhelmingly difficult to achieve. Because of this, Goodreads is considered to be a link that should never be used as a reliable source and in general, doesn't really belong on Wikipedia even in the external links section.
Now as far as articles such as One: A Novel, there's a few other things to mention. First off, you should link to the review site rather than just quote the site. (IE, to the review itself.) The thing here is to verify that the site did review the work in question but also so we can verify that the site is usable as a reliable source. The sites you listed would be usable as reliable sources, but you've got to be careful because some places will seem legit but actually just be a blog or otherwise unusable source. Also, please don't list the author's other works on the article. Also, we don't list the author's other works in an article about a singular work. What I'd recommend is that you make a template like say, Template:The Dark Tower, and list the works there. We generally only list another work if there's maybe one specific other work in question (as in the person in question only has 1-2 works) and there's no reason to make a template. Also, when writing a reception section, we try to avoid bullet points with reviews because we've had people complain that it looks promotional. I've also tried to make them flow in a bit of a paragraph, as taking big quotes can come across as promotional as well. I'll do maybe one big quote, but otherwise I try to take small phrases from the review and write an original sentence.
Otherwise, it's good to see people making book articles. I just wanted to give you sort of a head's up because I noticed that another article was up for deletion. You made a few other articles and I'd just like to kind of caution you on them because while offhand they do seem to have notability once you start looking for sources, they do require some cleanup and not everyone is going to do that before nominating it for deletion, as you've seen with the article The Great Wall of Lucy Wu. I'm not trying to tell you to stop or anything, just be a little careful. I'd recommend just sort of doing some cleanup with the articles you've done so far to avoid further deletion nominations. The Lucy Wu article has been cleaned and is basically what a book article should look like. Tokyogirl79 (｡◕‿◕｡) 22:02, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
Speedy deletion nomination of Gregory L. Henslee
A tag has been placed on Gregory L. Henslee, requesting that it be deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under two or more of the criteria for speedy deletion, by which articles can be deleted at any time, without discussion. If the page meets any of these strictly-defined criteria, then it may be soon be deleted by an administrator. The reasons it has been tagged are:
- It seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become encyclopedic. (See section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion.) Please read the guidelines on spam and Wikipedia:FAQ/Business for more information.
- It appears to be about a person, organization (band, club, company, etc.), individual animal, or web content, 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. (See section A7 of 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 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, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here.

Thank you for your recent contributions. Getting started creating new articles on Wikipedia can be tricky, and you might like to try creating a draft version first, which you can then ask for feedback on if necessary, with less risk of deletion. Do make sure you also read help available to you, including Your First Article and the Tutorial. You might also like to try the Article Wizard, which has an option to create a draft version. Thank you. §FreeRangeFrogcroak 00:22, 15 December 2014 (UTC)
