Black Pine Sawyer[edit]

A tag has been placed on Black Pine Sawyer, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. If you plan to add more material to the article, I advise you to do so immediately. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources which verify their content. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait a while for you to add contextual material, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page and state your intention on the article's talk page. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Tonywalton  | Talk 15:07, 20 December 2006 (UTC)

Beetle articles[edit]

Hi. I'm afraid I know less than you about beetles - it would help if you could take a look at this and add at least a couple of sentences rather than just "a black beetle" or "a beetle that eats flowers". While there's just enough there for someone to expand the article(s) it would be better if you were to at least put minimal information there at the outset, and tag the articles as "stubs", probably with {{beetle-stub}}. Even more complete articles like Scarlet lily beetle are classed as stubs. If you could at least put that sort of information in (don't worry about the infoboxes on the right-hand side) and use sentences, rather than just a few words, it would be great! Cheers, Tonywalton  | Talk 15:56, 20 December 2006 (UTC) Meadow Spittle Bug and Mourningcloak Butterfly are good examples.. "A meadow spittle bug is a bug". "A mourningcloak butterfly is a butterfly" The article in both cases merely tells the reader what they already know. Tonywalton  | Talk 15:59, 20 December 2006 (UTC)

Eric Mackenzie[edit]

This is a similarly over-short article. OK, he was a baseball player. Was he a 10-year-old Little League player? A record-breaking pitcher for a notable side? You know the answers to those questions (I assume); please put them in the article (and if he was a 10-year-old Little Leaguer the chances are very high that the article will be deleted as non-notable). As it is it should be tagged as not enough information. I'll leave it a couple of hours with a {{hangon}} tag on it to give you a chance to expand it. Tonywalton  | Talk 16:13, 20 December 2006 (UTC)
