Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on List of banks in Serbia requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A1 of 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. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

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 (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 article 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 article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you. From-cary (talk) 09:27, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

Thanks a lot for your contribution[edit]

  • The regulation was made in the assembly of NC and all NC's official public organizations adopted new change. For example, The ministry of Tourism of NC prepared a web site that used "northcyprus" in the address. Also, the private organizations are obliged to use the new form of name and hence web sites addresses of the privates were changed accordingly. For example: http://www.northcyprus.com , http://www.northcyprus.org etc. Also, the ministry's page is http://www.northcyprus.cc Also, almost all private companies completed the name change: For example: The Shipping firm Fergun: http://www.fergun.net Here, in this site, just look at the title page of the web site.
  • Unfortunately, there is no BOT in Wikipedia for such kinds of name changes. In the case of NC, it can be done easily. But what if it was a big country !!!
  • The Wiki-users in North Cyprus decided to change the wiki-page (you mentioned where "branding" occured) at the end. The Ministry of Tourism Web site of North Cyprus is http://www.northcyprus.cc . Also, when there is a quick adoptation of the new name: when you just google (http://www.google.com.tr) the "North Cyprus" and "Northern Cyprus", the following hit numbers occur: "North Cyprus": 1 450 000 and "Northern Cyprus": 815 000. But, don't forget to use quotation marks (" ") when googling since only in the quotationed case, the reality is seen very neatly. Thank you very much for your kind interest.
  • Dear Friend. You have very rightful for confusing, since one foreigner can easily confuse this. The usage is like that: Long Form: "The Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus" and the Short Form: " North Cyprus". The page you mentioned (http://www.kktcb.eu/index.php) is the Official Page of Presidency of TRNC. Just look at the page http://www.kktcb.eu/index.php and the menu above there once more: The links are: PRESIDENT & PRESIDENCY & PRESS OFFICE & DOCUMENTS & CONTACT & NORTH CYPRUS & E-DIRECTORY & E-LIBRARY. So, you gave the proof just yourself. Thanks a lot: As the legal name change is clear in the menu. Cheapfriends (talk) 18:45, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

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

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.

Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for organizations and companies. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

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.
