Copyright issues[edit]

This edit is definitely not encyclopedic in tone and looks likely to be a violation of copyright. It is also probably a violation of WP:CRYSTAL. I suggest that you remove it until the event is reported in December, when surely it will receive coverage from various news sources etc. - Sitush (talk) 17:59, 15 August 2012 (UTC)

  • Sitush, I have no objection if you really want to remove my edit but the reasons you cite for such a possible removal don't seem to add up. The Bishop of the diocese of Kottar is the person who petitioned Vatican (the headquarters of the Catholic Church) to have Devasahayam Pillai declared a Martyr. It is this Bishop who is issuing a Statement that the ceremony of declaration of martyrdom and beatification of Devasahayam Pillai will take place in the diocese of Kottar on December 2, 2012. I have cited the Bishop's Circular as the source of the information. Is it a violation of copyright to cite an authoritative source? How can this be construed as "Crystal ball" prediction when a date and place have been announced by an authoritative source with regard to an event that is being organized? Do you think it would be "crystal ball" to say that the next summer olympics will take place in Rio de Jeneiro, citing the International Olympic Committee's Statement?

If, regardless of the reasons given above you decide to remove my edit, please go ahead. I shall look for an online source as reference as early as I can find one.பவுல்-Paul (talk) 23:04, 15 August 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Grease devil[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 Grease devil requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page appears to be a clear copyright infringement. This page appears to be a direct copy from http://www.iol.co.za/news/world/grease-devil-panic-grips-sri-lanka-1116640. 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 or other printed material 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 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.  —jmcgnh(talk) (contribs) 06:26, 8 June 2016 (UTC)

You might want to consider adding a definition of "grease devil" to Wiktionary. Or reviving this page by providing text in your own words referencing multiple reliable sources.  —jmcgnh(talk) (contribs) 15:16, 9 June 2016 (UTC)
