Hello Gurt Posh. Well spotted. Thank you :) --Vejvančický (talk | contribs) 09:24, 27 May 2011 (UTC)

Few things about username warnings

Regarding User talk:Commercefinancialinc, When leaving this notice, you need to supply a reason for it, as well as you should be signing your name afterwards. Also, please don't leave notices for users who have not made any edits - it's not needed. :) You're doing some great work otherwise, though. Keep it up! Avicennasis @ 12:24, 27 Iyar 5771 / 31 May 2011 (UTC)

OK, that all sounds like sensible advice, thanks. And thanks for noticing the work. :-) Gurt Posh (talk) 14:20, 31 May 2011 (UTC)

Liber diversarum arcium page

GURT POSH please back off for an hour or so - or a whole day - if you look at the history, you will see I am in the middle of making this page, abnd due to your intervention, I have lost a load of edits - ironically those yi=our header demands. PLEASE LOOK AT THE DATE AND TIME OF EDITS BEFORE YOU WADE IN - I mean, thanks and all, for lookign at it, but give me a moment to write it first! In fact looking at it,you have cost me an hour's work, at least. THINK!!!!!!!!!!! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Markeyatgnapcorg (talkcontribs)

At the time I added the categories and tags, the page asked for contributions up at the top. So contribute I did. I'm sorry you've lost edits, but if you'd like more time to edit the article, then please consider either adding Template:Under construction, or moving the article to a WP:User subpage to give you time to work on the page. Wikipedia is a collaborative editing environment, so you can expect more edits like mine unless you isolate the article for solo editing for a while. Would you like me to move it to a user subpage for you? Gurt Posh (talk) 10:04, 1 June 2011 (UTC)
I see that you've also posted at Talk:Liber diversarum arcium, so I'll move the talk thread there. Gurt Posh (talk) 10:09, 1 June 2011 (UTC)

THANKS!

Thanks! OK, I'm logging off for the afternoon - it's all yours! Feel free to tinker, and I'll have a look in six hours or so. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Markeyatgnapcorg (talkcontribs) 10:20, 1 June 2011 (UTC)

User:RAYOLIVERESQ

I see that you posted a User notice on my article under construction. As you can see, I posted a notice that the User page is an "article under construction." Thank you for your input. I was not aware that there was a standard logo that could be added. Also, I read that you are part of the Wales commons community. How did you discover my page? Thanks again. RAYOLIVERESQ RAYOLIVERESQ (talk) 15:40, 2 June 2011 (UTC)

I saw your edit on Special:RecentChanges. You seem to be devoting most of your editing time to writing an autobio on your user page: please give us a hand with the many articles that need adding or improving! Thanks, Gurt Posh (talk) 15:43, 2 June 2011 (UTC)

your greeting, my changes

G'day Gurt,

I tried editing "wiki/Carboniferous" and shortly after I saved my changes and checked that they were visible, a) I saw that I had a message from you, and b) my changes disappeared. I'm supposing these events are linked; any explanation(s)?

Try again:

rgds, WiPhi (talk) 18:20, 2 June 2011 (UTC).

Hello, and thanks for contributing. Yes, you can see from the page history that I reverted your change. The content you added is partly WP:Original research, and partly WP:Synthesis. Wikipedia isn't really the best place for that: content added needs to be WP:Verifiable from WP:Reliable sources. Thanks, Gurt Posh (talk) 18:28, 2 June 2011 (UTC)

Noted: {"A and B, therefore C" is acceptable only if a reliable source has published...} Thanks, WiPhi (talk) 18:40, 2 June 2011 (UTC).

Hello: I would be happy to assist in Wiki editing of articles, within the purview of my expertise. However, my User Page is an article under construction and serves as a learning model for me. By constructing my page, I become more familiar with the policy guidelines and with special embedded links which are available. I have the impression that the header / user page disclaimer which you placed on my "page under construction" serves as a block to search engines. If the header which you placed blocks search engine links to my page, then I am unable to attract editorial interest or contributions to the page. Kindly let me know if search engines have been blocked by the header which you inserted. Also, I would appreciate a rationale for inserting the header, when there has always been a notice that the page was an "article under construction" to be moved for article listing after discussion. Notices were previously placed as a Header and Footer. Thank you. Ray Oliver, Esq. 14:31, 8 June 2011 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by RAYOLIVERESQ (talkcontribs)

Geoff Holder Page

Hi Gurt, I have added links out of the page, footnoted several reviews and included a bibliography. When you have times could you please review again, and remove any header warning tags you feel I have fulfilled, or at least specifically point me in the correct direction now.

Thank you,

Captainhero89 (talk) 13:56, 7 June 2011 (UTC)

Have a read of the links in the tags at the top of the page: there are several outstanding issues left, such as the lack of WP:SECONDARY sources. Notability per WP:AUTHOR is also still not clear yet: he has written more than 20 books, but that on its own isn't sufficient to show notability. Can you find more book reviews or profiles of Holder in WP:Reliable sources? Thanks, Gurt Posh (talk) 14:50, 7 June 2011 (UTC)

Gurt,

I have dug further and found several new sources from third party publications with examples of reviews and biographies of Mr. Holder, and I am on a continuing quest to further upgrade the page. I feel the only issue outstanding is currently the linking to the page from others issue which I will seek to resolve as soon as possible, could you please review again and get back to me? Many thanks.

Vandalism?

Excuse me? What are you accusing me of doing? PTJoshua (talk) 16:05, 7 June 2011 (UTC)

Sorry! You were fixing it, not causing it. Had just finished making an apology at your user talk page. Gurt Posh (talk) 16:07, 7 June 2011 (UTC)

I noticed the message you recently left to a newcomer. Please remember: do not bite the newcomers. If you see someone make a common mistake, try to politely point out what they did wrong and how to correct it. Thank you. Thepoliticalmaster (talk) 11:06, 8 June 2011 (UTC)

Which newcomer? Do you mean you? You started out editing today by vandalizing several pages, and have been filling WP:UAA and WP:AIV with spurious reports. Please stop. Gurt Posh (talk) 11:08, 8 June 2011 (UTC)

Geoff Holder Page Revisited

Hi Gurt,

Sorry for creating a new section again, was not sure if you had noticed my addition to the Geoff Holder section above:

I have dug further and found several new sources from third party publications with examples of reviews and biographies of Mr. Holder, and I am on a continuing quest to further upgrade the page. (I am aware of a potential video interview upcoming amongst other things which I could put in as another biographical reference point as well.) I feel the only issue outstanding is currently the linking to the page from others issue which I will seek to resolve as soon as possible, could you please review again and get back to me? Many thanks.

Captainhero89 (talk) 14:44, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

Hello, I assume you're editor User:Captainhero89, but haven't logged in yet. Yes there have been some improvements, thanks, but more work is needed. I've made some additional edits today.
But I also notice that although you say on Talk:Geoff Holder that you're "a fan who has been able to get an interview with the author, and gathered information from across the internet concerning him so as to create this page", yet you posted his official promo photo File:Geoff with Skull.jpg, as used in the Heritage Key reference and elsewhere, but citing yourself as the photo's copyright holder and releasing it under an open license. Are you the copyright holder of that photo? What's your connection with Mr. Holder please? Thanks, Gurt Posh (talk) 09:31, 15 June 2011 (UTC)

Yes I am editor captain hero. Yes I am licenses to distribute that photograph, as It was given to me with permission to release for educational purposes. I was allowed the photograph as I had mentioned in the interview that I was hoping to create a wikipedia page for him, if he would agree to that, which he did, and was kind enough to give me that photograph and access to some resources to help reference it. I am currently in contact with Mr. Holder in an attempt to gain more references and resources to help validate the page, so with your enduring patience I will continually upgrade it, and I would appreciate any and all help of course. If you could please check regularly to see if your demands are being met, it would again be appreciated.

Captainhero89 (talk) 14:44, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

OK then there's a problem with File:Geoff with Skull.jpg, because you've declared in the licensing that it was your own work, and that you've published it under an open license. Since it's not your own work, then you need to say so, and get permission from the copyright holder to publish it here. Wikipedia has to respect copyright, for legal reasons. I'll remove the image from the article, while this gets sorted out. Gurt Posh (talk) 14:50, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

Gurt,

Thanks for this, as this is my first article I have naturally made a few errors. I will re-upload with hopefully the correct rights and licenses attached. Thank you.

Captainhero89 (talk) 10:00, 27 June 2011 (UTC)

last warning placed on my talk ?

what are talking about - my last entry was for an inappropriate addition to 2011 in Science where Jack Kevorkian was added as a scientist - please quote me even one sentence from his wiki article that qualifies him as having achieved "anything" in science!--70.162.171.210 (talk) 10:47, 16 June 2011 (UTC)

The entry says "Jack Kevorkian, American pathologist, advocate of euthanasia (b. 1928)", all of which are true. Don't delete content about someone you disagree with. It's vandalism. Gurt Posh (talk) 10:49, 16 June 2011 (UTC)
just because someone played one day in the NFL no one would surely write them up as suitable for the 2011 in the United States - in similar fashion that guy has done nothing, I repeat nothing, he did not discover create or achieve in science - as his article clearly shows if you have read it - all he can claim to notability in science is having somehow having graduated a medical school - his article does not even say he did a residency anywhere - let alone being board certified! - maybe if there was a section for 2011 in Medicine or 2011 in Philosophy or 2011 in Law - just to be clear he is correctly credited in 2011 and 2011 in the United States where in both places he is clearly notable and warrants inclusion.--70.162.171.210 (talk) 10:58, 16 June 2011 (UTC)
Precisely: there is no 2011 in medicine, and medicine is an applied science. Your edit summary indicates that your primary motivation was not in improving the classification of his achievements. Gurt Posh (talk) 11:15, 16 June 2011 (UTC)
dude i would hate to be someone who had ever thrown out one of those last notice or else and to have done it on such shakey grounds as your preposterous arguement is - i hope you can sleep at night.--70.162.171.210 (talk) 12:04, 16 June 2011 (UTC)
I will do my best, thank you. Gurt Posh (talk) 13:05, 16 June 2011 (UTC)

Dell Latitude E5410

In regards to this article, I hope you will look at the 3 contributions of Pritwiki12 [1] At best, they should link to a manufacturer's site or wiki page. Rather, they put a link spam for realviewz.com How can this be anything other than spam? Evaders99 (talk) 09:47, 17 June 2011 (UTC)

You're right, several of the others from that editor are indeed spam. And the link at the bottom of the Dell article I unspeedied is the same as on the spam ones. OK, I'll re-add the speedy, thanks for the heads-up. Gurt Posh (talk) 10:26, 17 June 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Joshua Thomas Noble (Noble) Anderson

Thanks for removing the speedy delete tag from this article - not sure why it would have been deleted in the first place.

Garyvines (talk) 10:53, 18 June 2011 (UTC)

No worries mate. Just some over-enthusiasm, I think. Gurt Posh (talk) 14:37, 18 June 2011 (UTC)

Jamal Al-Karboli

Hello. You reverted this edit by User:Jamal alkarboli as vandalism, then blocked him for it. I'm puzzled: these links are articles from a newspaper and from the Red Cross sites that mention the subject, on an article that's tagged for more references. How was that edit vandalism?
Also please note that he hasn't even had a level 2 warning yet, let alone level 4. He was bitten hard as a newbie, with 3 level one warnings bombed at once by a second editor, after I had given him a gentle warning about not writing autobios, and his first draft of the article was quite self-promotional. But a block for adding a few references seems unduly harsh. Perhaps I'm missing something? Gurt Posh (talk) 14:17, 18 June 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up. It appear(ed) to me to be COI editing and link spam due to the previous warnings. But since you are closer to the article and know the history better, I will reverse the block and leave an apology on the user's talk page. --causa sui (talk) 18:03, 18 June 2011 (UTC)
Thanks very much. I hope someone without a COI will write more about him. There's not a lot about him online in English, and I can't read Arabic without an online translator. Maybe WP:WikiProject Iraq can help with this - I'll go post there now. Gurt Posh (talk) 10:57, 19 June 2011 (UTC)

Hamdi Makhlouf

If you decide to delete someone else's speedy deletion template, is it not a good idea to look on the article's talk page and make your case there? You will see that I made my case for speedy deletion. I would have appreciated an attempt at communication before you deleted my templates. I would be amazed to hear how you think he meets WP:MUSICBIO. He misses it by a mile! Fly by Night (talk) 01:10, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

Yes, it would have been best to post my rationale for removing the speedy at your talk page. The article does clearly assert notability, however: it states that he has composed pieces for several famous oud players, and that he won a presidential prize, and has performed at what appear to be important music festivals. It therefore fails CSD for db-a7, though you might want to take it to AFD. Thanks, Gurt Posh (talk) 01:14, 20 June 2011 (UTC)
Forgot to mention: it also says he was the oud player for the film Coco (film). Gurt Posh (talk) 01:18, 20 June 2011 (UTC)
(edit conflict)Notability is not inherited, so it doesn't matter who he composed music for. To pass Criterion 5 of WP:MUSICBIO you need to have "won or been nominated for a major music award, such as a Grammy, Juno, Mercury, Choice or Grammis award." The "President's prize" does not fall into that catagory; the president's prize won him a grant to do a PhD. Finally, WP:MUSICBIO does not mention festivals. Can you actually point to explicit guidelines on real policy pages to justify your claims of notability? I see you haven't been around here long ([2]), so I can understand you not knowing how things are done. But we have rules and guidelines that have been written and modified over many years. Fly by Night (talk) 01:24, 20 June 2011 (UTC)
P.S. Please don't use the talkback template. I have a watch list. cheers. Fly by Night (talk) 01:24, 20 June 2011 (UTC)
P.P.S. The Coco claim is not supported by a single source. Until it is, it should be assumed to be false. If it does turn out to be true then that is another matter. But the article, as it stood when it was tagged, was worthy of WP:CSD#A7. Fly by Night (talk) 01:28, 20 June 2011 (UTC)
Yes, those are all good reasons to take it to AFD, but definitely not speedy deletion. Speedy deletion A7 for musicians is for school garage bands that are just about to release their first EP. Please have a read of Wikipedia:CSD#Articles (A7) for more info. Thanks, Gurt Posh (talk) 01:29, 20 June 2011 (UTC)
That's where you're wrong. A7 covers people, bands, clubs, animals, websites, and even companies. As an autopatrolled user I am very familiar with all of the new pages guideline, thank you very much. Fly by Night (talk) 01:37, 20 June 2011 (UTC)
Yes, as I said, A7 covers musicians. But speedy deletion is for where no assertion of notability made. If it asserts notability, though you disagree, it should be prodded or AFD'd. Gurt Posh (talk) 01:40, 20 June 2011 (UTC)
It's when the article does not credibly indicate the importance or significance of the subject. The key word is credibly. If the article does not show how the subject meets WP:MUSICBIO then it does not credibly indicate the importance or significance of the subject; ergo it's an A7 candidate. I've tagged and had deleted almost 300 "articles" so I sort of know my way around the block. Believe me. Fly by Night (talk) 01:47, 20 June 2011 (UTC)
Claims to have been the musician for a famous film, composed pieces for famous musicians, etc. are perfectly credible. If he claimed to have written every note that Eric Clapton has ever played, then we would be talking about "no credible claim". The article should have been proddded or AFD'd, and not speedied. Thanks, Gurt Posh (talk) 01:52, 20 June 2011 (UTC)
Check the wording: it says credibly indicate, not just indicate, It's unreferenced. It's not that the claim is credible, i.e. realistic, but that some credible proof has been given. Besides, there was no mention of the film when I tagged it. In it's current state the article would have been tagged for WP:AFD. But don't forget that the article looked like this when I tagged it, and had done for the past hour. All the best. Fly by Night (talk) 01:58, 20 June 2011 (UTC)
Yes, that's what I said, it credibly indicates notability. It did also needs references to back up the credible claims. You're confusing two separate issues: credibility and WP:Verifiability. As for the state the article was in, you said yourself on the article talk page that you had read the French version, so had already seen the credits for his film work. That's why the article should have been proddded or AFD'd, and not speedied. All the best. Gurt Posh (talk) 02:03, 20 June 2011 (UTC)
Please, don't insult my intelligence. If it does not verify notability then it does not credibly indicate importance. Simples. Good bye. Fly by Night (talk) 02:12, 20 June 2011 (UTC)
Please post a few more appeals to your vast authority and experience here, rather than admit you made a simple mistake. Good bye. Gurt Posh (talk) 02:14, 20 June 2011 (UTC)
You think I'm wrong and I think you're wrong. Let's agree to disagree. Fly by Night (talk) 02:20, 20 June 2011 (UTC)
Okey dokey. Gurt Posh (talk) 02:21, 20 June 2011 (UTC)
(TPS: ) I agree to agree with Gurt Posh. There is a claim to notability-->a speedy tag is not applicable. Drmies (talk) 20:08, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

Altered speedy deletion rationale: Braden ring

Hello Gurt Posh. I am just letting you know that I deleted Braden ring, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, under a different criterion from the one you provided, which doesn't fit the page in question. Thank you. PhantomSteve/talk|contribs\ 02:28, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

OK, thanks for the heads-up. I don't think G2 quite fit either, but then Wikipedia doesn't have exact CSD criteria for what that article contained. Gurt Posh (talk) 02:29, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

Dear Gurt,

sorry -- I was editing the Chandran page at the same time as you. Possible I lost some of your changes by being a newbie. Sorryy!!! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Marsiliusofpadua (talkcontribs) 13:25, 23 June 2011 (UTC)

Clear Credential topic

Hi, thanks for helping me out with this. "The Federal No Child Left Behind Act requires that all teachers in core subject areas meet certain requirements in order to be considered as “Highly Qualified” no later than the end of the 2006-07 school year. Minimum qualifications include: Possession of a Bachelor’s Degree, Possession of an appropriate California teaching credential, and Demonstrated competence in core academic subjects."

An appropriate (or valid) California teaching credential is synonymous with a "Clear Credential", that is, the teacher has been cleared by the Sacramento because they have met specific requirements to X subject area. There is also the "Preliminary Clear Credential", which basically means that the teacher must go through two years of what is called Beginning Teacher Support and Assessment" training before they are approved with the "Clear Credential". Anyway, how do we adjust this on the Centennial article? Wikimonstruo (talk) 10:44, 24 June 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the explanation. Is that documented anywhere online? Let's link it in as a reference. Thanks, Gurt Posh (talk) 10:46, 24 June 2011 (UTC)

Nathaniel Hitch

I need your help!

I notice you have done some tidying up of my article but as soon as it went live I immediately asked that it be withdrawn. I should have used "sandbox" . I have by no means finished the article but just wanted to see how it was looking.

Gurt Posh I shall be eternally grateful if you could withdraw the article. Next time I shall use the "sandbox".

Please confirm

Sorry to be impatient.

re: Wade

She's notable because this murder and trial was featured on Dateline NBC, CNN, amongst multiple other sources. It surely is more notable than some of the other murderers that have wiki pages specifically Kevin Foster and Tiffany Cole. Rachel Wade's trial was also covered extensively on CNN as I watched every second of it. KING OF WIKIPEDIA - GRIM LITTLEZ (talk) 10:16, 27 June 2011 (UTC)

Hello Gurt

This is not an auto biography it is about my father and I am his son with the same name. My father was a decorated war pilot in Vietnam and we would like to tell his story. He is a war hero and participated in many missions that have affected the history of our country.

My question to you is how to move it to the sandbox to get input from sibling to develop the references and history and not lose his name.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Johnny — Preceding unsigned comment added by Johnnyftaylor (talkcontribs) 10:59, 27 June 2011 (UTC)

It was all written in the first person, with "I" and "me", so it read like an autobiography. It will be very difficult to write about your father objectively, but if you think you're able to write it from a WP:Neutral point of view, then please read WP:BIO for guidelines on notability. Please feel free to ask her eif you have any more questions. Thanks, Gurt Posh (talk) 11:52, 27 June 2011 (UTC)

Ok, so I can still edit the entry without it being deleted quite yet? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Thesoltman (talkcontribs) 13:24, 28 June 2011 (UTC)

The best place to work on it is at the existing draft: User:Thesoltman/TJ Markets. Thanks, Gurt Posh (talk) 13:41, 28 June 2011 (UTC)

OOPS!

Thanks Gurt.
I got really confused when I saw that the original name of my Wiki Article "Snake Valley Astronomical Association (SVAA)" was replaced by "Snake Valley Astronomical Association" without the '(SVAA)' on the end. So I was hoping to connect them somehow. Seems not. Thanks for letting me know I did it wrong. User talk:Ballaratdragons

No worries! Note that I've already linked up the old title to the new one, so when you click on Snake Valley Astronomical Association (SVAA), it will automatically redirect readers to Snake Valley Astronomical Association. Thanks, Gurt Posh (talk) 13:59, 28 June 2011 (UTC)

Tianjin Zhongke Blue Whale Information Technologies Co., Ltd.

FYI: this was a recreation of a previously speedied (promotional) article. I've nominated this version for lack of assertion of notability. Regards, Drmies (talk) 14:46, 29 June 2011 (UTC)

Makes sense: thanks for copying me. Gurt Posh (talk) 14:47, 29 June 2011 (UTC)

Altered Speedy Deletion rationale: Patrick carraher

Hello Gurt Posh, and thanks for your work patrolling new changes. I am just informing you that I have deleted a page you tagged (Patrick carraher) under a criterion different from the one your provided, which was inappropriate or incorrect. CSD criteria are narrow and specific to protect the encyclopedia, and the process is more effective if the correct deletion rationale is supplied. Consider reviewing the criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions or problems, please let me know. Thanks again! decltype (talk) 14:52, 29 June 2011 (UTC)


The Global Open University (TGOU)

i worked hard to put these information and you delete and revert them back to just basics ???the current info about the university is wrong...

<paste of the entire article, mostly copyrighted text from university website, removed by Gurt Posh> these are the correct info — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jinojjohn (talkcontribs)

Please STOP pasting copyrighted text from the university's website. Wikipedia cannot allow copyrighted information for legal reasons, and most of what you copied to the article is highly WP:PROMO marketing fluff. Gurt Posh (talk) 19:13, 29 June 2011 (UTC)

Regarding QuickBooks Hosting...?

This page should not be speedy deleted because it was written to explain the differences between QuickBooks Hosting Providers (not specifically, but broken down by category.) We took the time to rewrite this awhile back because the original article was written poorly and primarily targeted to promote a specific service. The only solution that was listed in this article was Right Networks as they are Intuit's Enterprise Hosting Solution. If there are any questions regarding such, please let me know. I've moved this to the talk page as a Contested deletion. --Jboutin (talk) 19:42, 29 June 2011 (UTC)

So far all your edits have included links to one provider. The best place to make your case is at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Quickbooks hosting. Thanks, Gurt Posh (talk) 19:44, 29 June 2011 (UTC)

Already did, but it's VERY annoying having to constantly stay at this. The article is both important, and informal. As stated above, Right Networks is verified as Intuit's Hosted Enterprise Solution (found on their own website...). --Jboutin (talk) 19:48, 29 June 2011 (UTC)

Mario Azzopardi (disambiguation)

Hello. You PRODded this dab, but the creator removed it without giving a reason. I've nominated it for AfD if you want to comment there. Best wishes, Boleyn (talk) 07:09, 30 June 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know: I've just commented. Gurt Posh (talk) 08:49, 30 June 2011 (UTC)

Schizopop manifesto

the article related to Schizopop manifesto is being unfairly treated as being an attempt to create a neologism, as well as a promo campaign, which ain't true. Cordially, hundun soup — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hundunsoup (talkcontribs) 12:24, 30 June 2011 (UTC)

OK, but the way to contest the deletion is to make your case at WP:Articles for deletion/Schizopop, and not by repeatedly removing the AFD notices on the two articles. Gurt Posh (talk) 12:47, 30 June 2011 (UTC)

EASAC

Dear Gurt,

can we please discuss what needs to be done in order to keep my article on EASAC in Wikipedia? I work for this organisation and need to present our organisation on Wikipedia. In my eyes, the statement I have made is very objective. If you like, you can contact me under: secretariat@easac.eu.

Thanks & best regards, Annika — Preceding unsigned comment added by AnnikaStroefer (talkcontribs) 14:08, 30 June 2011 (UTC)

Please have a read of WP:Conflict of interest, and wait for someone else to write an article about your organisation: it will be very difficult for you to write about it objectively. Thanks, Gurt Posh (talk) 15:15, 30 June 2011 (UTC)
Gurt I do think that you run the risk of pursuing the guidelines on non-bias too stringently - as long as the source is written objectively with third party sources then there doesn't necessarily have to be a problem. It's certainly not ideal, but is not grounds for speedy in every instance. Reichsfürst (talk) 10:23, 1 July 2011 (UTC)
EASAC - European Academies Science Advisory Council was written entirely subjectively, consisting solely of a paste from her employer's website, with no sources, as noted in the deletion summary. Gurt Posh (talk) 10:58, 1 July 2011 (UTC)
I was referring to the Memorial Park thing particularly - I just think we should be careful not to apply rigorous standards unilaterally. Reichsfürst (talk) 11:57, 1 July 2011 (UTC)
Manila Memorial Park and Manila memorial Park, identical posts by User:Manilamemorial, consisted of one line of marketing about it being the "leading memorial park in the Philippines", followed by an acre of copypaste from the company website, with no sources.
