Proposed deletion of One America News Network[edit]

The article One America News Network has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Not really notable

While all constructive 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 {{proposed deletion/dated}} 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 {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist.

Welcome to Wikipedia . We're always glad to have articles on notable new subjects. But the rules are that an article on an organization needs to show notability with references providing substantial coverage from 3rd party independent published reliable sources, print or online, but not press releases, or material derived from press releases. For One America News Network , if you have such sources, it may be possible to rewrite the article; otherwise, it will not be possible until such sources are published.

As you expand the article, remember that a Wikipedia article needs to be written like an encyclopedia article, not a press release--don't praise the organization or person, say what they do Don't include material that would better belong in an advertisement or a web page, such as a detailed list of products or of executives or branch offices.Remember not to copy from a web site, even your own -- first it's a copyright violation, but, even if you own the copyright and are willing to give us permission according to WP:DCM (permission that irrevocably gives everyone in the world the right to copy, reuse, and modify the material) , the tone will not be encyclopedic and the material will not be suitable. (Thus, there is generally no purpose in giving permission; it is better to rewrite.)

Include only material that would be of interest to a general reader coming across the mention of the subject and wanting the sort of information that would be found in an encyclopedia. Do not include material that would be of interest only to those associated with the subject, or to prospective clients/purchasers/students/supporters/donors--that sort of content is considered promotional.

As reviewing administrator, I removed the prod tag and placed an "underconstruction" tag on the article which should give you a few days to find sources before it gets listed for deletion. If you find you can't do it yet you can facilitate matters by placing at the top a line reading : {{db-author}}, and it will be quickly deleted.. When you have the necessary material, then try again. I do not want to discourage you, but to encourage you to continue to contribute. DGG ( talk ) 21:16, 5 July 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the advice! I have made sure a couple sources and additional information have been added and hopefully that will do for now. I know more information will become available as the network is apparently just now launching. Gs814 (talk) 05:32, 6 July 2013 (UTC)
