March 2011[edit]

Please refrain from making test edits in Wikipedia pages, such as those you made to Bob Rupe, even if you intend to fix them later. Such edits appear to be vandalism and have been reverted. If you would like to experiment again, please use the sandbox. Thank you. | Uncle Milty | talk | 12:49, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

Bob Rupe[edit]

Please do not add the G7 tag to Bob Rupe again. That tag only applies if you are the only significant author. Since others have provided content it does not apply. The only possible option to get this article deleted would be to go through an WP:AFD. GB fan 14:12, 22 April 2013 (UTC)

April 2013[edit]

Please do not remove content or templates from pages on Wikipedia, as you did to Bob Rupe, 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. GB fan 00:40, 27 April 2013 (UTC)

Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to blank out or remove portions of page content, templates or other materials from Wikipedia, you may be blocked from editing. Thank you.--Walor (talk) 04:32, 28 April 2013 (UTC)

Nomination of Bob Rupe for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Bob Rupe is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Bob Rupe until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Apteva (talk) 01:11, 10 May 2013 (UTC)

May 2013[edit]

I was unfamiliar with the deletion discussion before the series of tag removals. Having reviewed and commented at the AfD, I've unblocked to allow you to participate there. Please do not edit-war over the tag; I sympathize with your concern but it would be more constructive for you to participate positively in the discussion. Acroterion (talk) 03:57, 10 May 2013 (UTC)


The ongoing discussion (which I cannot access) is assuming that Mr. Rupe created this article. That is incorrect, I did. We are family. At this point I am regretful for having done so. He feels his privacy has been violated by someone who insists on publishing his birth name when there is no document to verify its fact. He is very upset with Wikipedia and its participants and would prefer the article be deleted entirely. Unfortunately, I cant do that as much as I would like to.

File permission problem with File:Silos RCA Promo.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Silos RCA Promo.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.

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

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.
