Deletion discussion about Ontario Malleable Iron Company[edit]

Hello, GMTEgirl,

I wanted to let you know that there's a discussion about whether Ontario Malleable Iron Company should be deleted. Your comments are welcome at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Ontario Malleable Iron Company .

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.

Thanks, LS1979 (talk) 16:39, 18 October 2014 (UTC)

Ontario Malleable Iron Company[edit]

You're doing some nice work. Can I suggest you use a more formal wiki style for your references? Also, some of your references don't link to a web address, which really makes it difficult for researchers. If you need a hand with this just send me a talk page message. Cheers.

Wiki style citations[edit]

Thanks for your response. This is a really long explanation so feel free to delete it when you're done.

A few weeks ago I wrote an article about Clarksville, Mississippi. If you look at it you'll see how I added sources.

I basically only use two types.

For stuff found on the web, it looks like this...

<ref>{{cite web | last = | first = | title = | publisher = | date = | url = | accessdate = }}</ref>

(NOTE: When you go to edit this talk page, you'll see I added "nowikis" in a lot of places. Disregard them. I had to add them to this edit to prevent my coding from activating)

If there are multiple authors, it looks like this... | last1 = | first1 = | last2 = | first2 =

Also, you only have to put ONE DATE. If you have a publication date, delete the access date, or vice versa, but don't add both.

For a book...

<ref>{{cite book | last = | first = | title = | publisher = | year = | url = | pages = }}</ref>

In the "pages" section, it's good to add all the pages in the book you used. And if you need to quote a particular page, add your reference after the quote, and then "{{rp|23}}" (which will show that your quote came from page number 23, or whatever page). You can see it used in this article... Bruinsburg, Mississippi.

Finally, the nice part about using these citations is you can use them over and over within the article.

In the Clarksville article, I added this reference in the article...

<ref name="Jones">{{cite web | last1 = Jones | first1 = Dennis | last2 = Mossa | first2 = Joann | last3 = Smith | first3 = F. Todd | title = Cultural Resources Survey of Fort Adams Reach Revetment, Mile 312.2 to 306.0-L, Mississippi River, Wilkinson County, Mississippi | publisher = U.S. Army Corps of Engineers | date = August 1993 | url = http://www.dtic.mil/dtic/tr/fulltext/u2/a271114.pdf}}</ref>

See how I added "<ref name="Jones">" to the first instance of this citation? After that, every time I need to add a citation for the Jones book, all I have to add is...

"<ref name="Jones"/>"

...then in the reference section, letters are added for each mention of "<ref name="Jones"/>".

Once you get good at it you'll see how much cleaner it looks. Cheers! Magnolia677 (talk) 02:16, 20 October 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Brown Brothers Tobacco Company[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Brown Brothers Tobacco Company 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 an organization or company, but it does not credibly 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 read more about 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 "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. noq (talk) 11:18, 29 September 2015 (UTC)

Status and Advice[edit]

As reviewing administrator, I did not delete the article. This is an historic firm, and presumably notable. However, you need to expand the article to make it viable. Minimal articles on even notable companies often are deleted here, and it is therefore necessary to make a fairly full article, not limited to directory sources. I added an {{underconstruction}} tag, which should give you at least a few days. You can add such a tag yourself when you havejust begun working on an article DGG ( talk ) 11:53, 29 September 2015 (UTC)
