Gates (band)[edit]

Gartoon-Bluefish-icon.png Welcome to Wikipedia! I'm glad you want to get involved, but I'm afraid there's a problem with the article you created, Gates (band). It did not indicate how or why the subject is notable, that is, why an article about that subject should be included in Wikipedia. Don't feel too badly; lots of people have a little trouble when creating their first article. You might find it useful to read Your First Article for some good advice about starting to create articles on Wikipedia. Two important rules of thumb are: Avoid writing about yourself, your business, your family and friends, or your web page, and avoid writing about anything that hasn't been written about in reliable sources like books, newspapers, and magazines. Anyway, don't be discouraged. I've deleted the article you created, and feel free to ask me if you have any more questions. If I've made a mistake, and this article really is about a subject that meets the notability criteria, then please let me know my leaving me a message and links to at least three newspaper articles, magazine articles, or books that have been written about the subject, and I'll be glad to undelete it, and even add the sources so no other patroller makes the same mistake. -FisherQueen (talk · contribs) 21:32, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

It's not my first time, but every article I make gets deleted. You'll want there to be a Gates page when gets becomes bigger than Wikipedia. This is the only reason I made an account! --Herbienay (talk) 21:37, 1 August 2010 (UTC)
Yes, you are correct, after Gates becomes notable, we will want an article about them. By then, it won't be necessary to write the article yourself, because your many fans will write it, and you'll be far too busy with your music career. But we don't need an article about the band until after they meet Wikipedia's notability criteria, and that doesn't require being 'bigger than Wikipedia'- although certainly some bands are. -FisherQueen (talk · contribs) 21:39, 1 August 2010 (UTC)
THANK YOU For finally listening to me. You rock, FisherQueen. Now I feel like a jerk. I just wanted my friend Ethan Koozer to finally get the page I promised. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Herbienay (talkcontribs) 21:40, 1 August 2010 (UTC)
No big deal; it's a very common error. By stopping, rather than continuing to make it over and over again until I have to block you, you're proving to be far smarter and classier than 80% of the people who make this error, though. -FisherQueen (talk · contribs) 21:44, 1 August 2010 (UTC)
Well, thanks. You too. --Herbienay (talk) 21:46, 1 August 2010 (UTC)
The humor essay Wikipedia:No one cares about your garage band might make you chuckle... especially since I suspect your band is performing at a level several notches higher than the usual junior-high garage bands we see around here. :) -FisherQueen (talk · contribs) 21:51, 1 August 2010 (UTC)
This is them (I think... they may have a singer, maybe he was kicked out...): Your band is looking for people --Herbienay (talk) 21:53, 1 August 2010 (UTC)
No worries, they'll get there. Me, I'm at the 'I learned a chord on my guitar, but now I can't remember the one I learned yesterday' stage. -FisherQueen (talk · contribs) 21:55, 1 August 2010 (UTC)
Thanks, that's really nice. Glad to see there's someone who's not a pessimist. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Herbienay (talkcontribs) 21:56, 1 August 2010 (UTC)
Someday, I will be able to reliably play three chords. Then, watch out, world! -FisherQueen (talk · contribs) 21:58, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Day Job[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Day Job requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A9 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a musical recording which does not indicate why its subject is important or significant, and where the artist's article has never existed, has been deleted or is eligible for deletion itself. 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 music.

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 - if no such tag exists then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hangon tag is unnecessary), 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. -- Ice (talk) 18:08, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

Template:Midtown[edit]

Hi there. Wanted to drop you a note about your recent edits to Template:Midtown. That thing is what's called a navbox; it conveniently groups links to articles of a related topic to facilitate reader navigation. As such, it should only contain links, and only working links to articles that exist on Wikipedia. In your recent edits you've added a list of the band's singles to the box, but none of these singles have articles. As such, I believe you've misconstrued the navbox for a discography, which it isn't. It's a navigation aide, so it should only contain article links. If at some point you or someone else creates articles for Midtown's singles, then of course links to those articles should be added to the box. But until then there shouldn't be anything in there that doesn't link to an existing article. Thanks. --IllaZilla (talk) 22:39, 8 November 2010 (UTC)

January 2011[edit]

Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to introduce inappropriate pages to Wikipedia, as you did at Gates (band), you may be blocked from editing. If you need guidance on how to create appropriate pages, try using the Article Wizard. FisherQueen (talk · contribs) 23:22, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

You can go to gatesnj.com. They're a real band. Why are they not notable? I really don't understand.

I know we talked about the notability criteria a few months ago; I searched again for reviews of their music in significant sources, or any other published information about them, but didn't find any. An encyclopedia doesn't need articles about everything that exists. My cat exists, and I can prove it, but there's no Wikipedia article about him. -FisherQueen (talk · contribs) 23:39, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

Ok, then I won't post anything about them then.
