Please do not remove speedy deletion tags from articles that you have created yourself, as you did with Asleep in the Deep (disambiguation). If you do not believe the article deserves to be deleted, then please do the following:

  1. Place {{hangon}} on the page. Please do not remove any existing speedy deletion tag(s).
  2. Make your case on the article's talk page.

Administrators will look at your reasoning before deciding what to do with the article. Thank you. DMacks 07:52, 12 December 2006 (UTC)

Signing[edit]

Hi there. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. If you can't type the tilde character, you should click on the signature button Button sig.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your name and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when. Thank you! Is this thing working? (talk) 21:35, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

Westboro Baptist Church (Topeka, KS, USA)[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Westboro Baptist Church (Topeka, KS, USA), and it appears to be very similar to another wikipedia page: Westboro Baptist Church. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case.

This message was placed automatically, and it is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article and it would be appreciated if you could drop a note on the maintainer's talk page. CorenSearchBot (talk) 06:17, 18 March 2008 (UTC)

Coal Run[edit]

I've removed your race lawsuit edits to Coal Run, Ohio: not because there was anything wrong with them, but because this Coal Run is not the same community as the lawsuits referred to. This Coal Run is in Washington County, while the other is in Muskingum County; the two counties don't even border. If you want to re-add the content to Wikipedia, feel free to create it at Coal Run, Muskingum County, Ohio. If you do that, please let me know, and I'll make necessary changes to other articles. Thanks for researching to produce this informative and interesting addition! Nyttend (talk) 14:04, 12 July 2008 (UTC)

Milton Hershey School[edit]

When adding notable alumni to school articles such as Milton Hershey School, please be sure that the entries are referenced per WP:WPSCH/AG#Alumni guidelines. I have left both entries intact at this time, but would request that you find references to support them. Note the references do not need to be added to the school article itself if the name is linked to a separate Wikipedia article, but the notation that thay attended the school needs to be referenced in that article. Wikipedia is all about Verifiability. Dbiel (Talk) 04:41, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

Seeking your comment[edit]

Hello!

I've noticed that in the past you've commented that you had issue with the way the pronunciation of Mac OS X was handled in its article.
I am writing to alert you of a proposal which is currently seeking comments on a change to the introduction of the article from:

Mac OS X (pronounced /mæk oʊ ɛs tɛn/ (deprecated template)) is a line of computer...
to:
Mac OS X (pronounced /mæk oʊ ɛs tɛn/; incorrectly as /mæk oʊ ɛs ɛks/) is a line of computer...

Note: There are alternatives wordings up for consideration.
Please take a moment to weigh in on the proposal or to view alternative wordings. Cheers. Nja247 14:40, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

Recently added Dellums information[edit]

You added a note to the "Aftermath" section of "2009 Oakland, CA police shootings." When I referenced the source it said only that Dellums was not invited to speak by the families of the slain officers, yet your note says that an undisclosed family member asked him not to speak. That's a bit different. Do you have another source for the latter? Thanks. Apostle12 (talk) 00:39, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

Thanks again. I have updated the article with the new information and much better sourcing. Since I have a close friend with OPD, I know Dellums is not highly thought of among the ranks, though his comments during this incident have been entirely appropriate. Apostle12 (talk) 23:15, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

Lovelle Mixon details[edit]

I realize that sourcing is a problem in providing details of Mixon's life, but perhaps Sista T. is not entirely reliable. Given the time Mixon spent in prison (most of the last six years), his age (26), and the information that he quit school at 17, it's hard to see how he would have had the time to become a "certified plumber." As a general contractor myself, I am somewhat aware of state licensing requirements, and I doubt Mixon could have fulfilled them given the time he had available. Also makes me wonder why he would have turned to crime--plumbers make good money.

Anyway, based on the source, I've changed the description to read that Mixon "worked as a plumber and custodian." You don't need to be a "certified" (licensed?) plumber to do plumbing work under someone who is licensed. If you find another source to clarify this point, please let me know.Apostle12 (talk) 05:15, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Zenobia Powell Perry[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Zenobia Powell Perry 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 band or musician, 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. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles 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 musical topics.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page 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 page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you. NPervez (talk) 14:22, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Marco Bragadino[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Marco Bragadino has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

it's effectively a disambiguation between an article which exists here and an article which, for English Wikipedia purposes, doesn't exist. bad disambiguation page! *hits with rolled-up newspaper*

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{dated prod}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Ironholds (talk) 21:54, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Bernardo Paz[edit]

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

A tag has been placed on Bernardo Paz requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia.

Speedy deletion nomination of Bernardo Paz[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 Bernardo Paz requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article or image appears to be a clear copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website or image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text or image — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website or image but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but 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 yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

bernard paz[edit]

The article was deleted because it was pure copyright infringement. The article was 100% a copy of a new york times article. He may be notable enough for an article, but it must be one written from scratch. Gaijin42 (talk) 23:54, 7 December 2012 (UTC)

If you think an earlier revision is not a copyright infringement, ask an admin to give it to you in userspace or undelete. Gaijin42 (talk) 00:25, 8 December 2012 (UTC)
