Notability of Ben Manski[edit]

A tag has been placed on Ben Manski, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article seems to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not assert the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, you may contest the deletion. To do this, add {{hangon}} on the top of the page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag) and leave a note on the article's talk page explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. GreenJoe 01:38, 16 May 2007 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Ben Manski[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

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

Non-notable person. See WP:BIO or WP:POLITICIAN. Never won elective office. Places he works may be notable, he does not seem to be.

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. The Speedy Deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and Articles for Deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. BaronLarf 22:25, 16 December 2009 (UTC)

Better Life Party[edit]

I have added a "{{prod}}" template to the article Better Life Party, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but I don't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and I've explained why in the deletion notice (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may contest the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page. Also, please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. 172.147.36.60 01:09, 28 May 2007 (UTC)

Notability of Republican Party of Iowa[edit]

A tag has been placed on Republican Party of Iowa, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article appears to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not assert the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, 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 article's 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 confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Corvus cornix 02:24, 24 July 2007 (UTC)

Kevin Donoghue[edit]

Nuvola apps important yellow.svg

Another editor has added the "{{prod}}" template to the article Kevin Donoghue, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but the editor doesn't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and has explained why in the article (see also Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not and Wikipedia:Notability). Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia or discuss the relevant issues at its talk page. If you remove the {{prod}} template, the article will not be deleted, but note that it may still be sent to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

Re: Could you recommend a quality UK/English political/election news source website other then the BBC[edit]

Sure - I hope these links help:

In the UK they're no equivalent of the electoral college, it's just whichever candidate gets the plurality of the popular vote. Council elections occur on a county, district, and town/parish level. There's the European parliament elections too but that's separate from the national elections. Direct.gov.uk is the British government's portal, like USA.gov or America.gov I guess. --Josh Atkins (talk - contribs) 12:40, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

Bill Siksay[edit]

Hey, Highground! Thanks for the note. I linked "the first" to LGBT firsts to make it consistent with other bios. See the lede in Harvey Milk (a featured article) for instance. I don't really have strong feelings about it though. So I added the link to the see also section.

The main reason I changed the wording is that "while already gay" sounds strange, as though being a Member of Parliament makes you gay and Siksay is special because he was gay before he started. Though, you are certainly right that the "in his first term" in my phrasing was strange, too. I reworded it again to use "non-incumbent". I think the new wording is clearer and more concise than the previous ones. Do you think so too? Queerudite (talk) 13:32, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, I know what you mean about non-incumbent. Challenger is the proper term, but it doesn't sound right in context. I like your suggestions. Oh, and I didn't remove info about the former gay MPs; I just reworded the sentence to make it shorter. Queerudite (talk) 18:24, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

LÖÖÖL[edit]

What you yourself call "identified as non-notable" by "numerous" users is only identified as such by you and ONLY YOU. Closes states are of course those whose best results diverge with less than 10%. FOX, CNN and New York Times have been handling it like that. The tables had been standing in the articles for months and years, and I haven't even drawn them up. Thus, this information was identified as notable by numerous users. :) So, please behave like an adult and remember: Even if you feel like the only and biggest person on this planet, you have to share it with billions of other people. So, please define "numerous" in another way. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 134.245.108.65 (talk) 00:17, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

Other users identifying information a non-notable (total of 4! editors, 3 other then me so it is not Only me)

2008: User:Hamiltonstone - United States presidential election, 2008 User:Timmeh - United States presidential election, 2008

2004: User:A new name 2008 - United States presidential election, 2004 User:Timmeh: United States presidential election, 2004 User:Highground79

1996: User:A new name 2008 - United States presidential election, 1996 User:Highground79 - United States presidential election, 1996

1992: User:A new name 2008 - United States presidential election, 1992 User:Highground79 - United States presidential election, 1996

1980: User:A new name 2008 - United States presidential election, 1980 User:Highground79 - United States presidential election, 1980

By previously established consensus among numerous editors (In discussion on talk pages) it has been determined that close states is defined for articles on Wikipedia as less then 5%. Wikipedia is not FOX, CNN and New York Times and a different definition has been established. Your statement that I'm the only one that has a problem with you edits is a bold face lie, and your acting like a child. Also It has been established by consensus that presidential election articles are not to include best states for candidates since that is of relevantly little significance since the US uses the electoral college. Since you have contacted several editors about their removal of your non-notable edits I must say again that you are telling a bold face lie when you say I'm the only one with a problem with your vandalism (See List above or your list of contributions when you went to other editors talk pages). I case it hasn't been made clear to you, continued addition of non-notable material that has been removed by several editors is edit waring which is considered vandalism. I will be contacting several administrators to inform then of your continued disruptive behavior and vandalism. If you feel like saving me the time go ahead and contact an administrator your self to complain about what you feel is vandalism by the several editors you have felt necessary to contact. I know that I and the other editors are in the right since this situation has happened before and the outcome reinforced the established definition and reaffirmed the non-notability of this low quality info.

Gubernatorial article[edit]

Hey, no problem... I've been running around doing articles for the historical Gubernatorial elections in Maine going back all the way back to 1820:

I've gotten back to 1940 so far, and am going to try to get into the mid 1800s in the next couple of weeks. But anyway, I will be pretty heavily involved in the 2010 article as well given my interest in Maine politics and Gubernatorial elections specifically, so I'm happy to help!

Presidential Results[edit]

If you could find all of the FEC results I would gladly help put them up. --24.210.149.86 (talk) 00:33, 22 June 2009 (UTC)

Response[edit]

Hey. Sorry I made some mistakes, but what all you have to edit the page. I have no problem with that. One of the greatest things about wikipedia is editing other's mistakes...by the way you forgot to sign your post on my talk page.--Jerzeykydd (talk) 15:39, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

And also please cite examples of possible bias against conservative politicians, I'm very curious to see that. I have no liberal agenda. My only agenda is to create and improve historical election articles because many people edit the recent 2006-2009 election pages very well, but the older ones still lack information, quality, etc. --Jerzeykydd (talk) 15:51, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

I'm currently in the process of fixing all the errors on the presidential election pages. I'm getting rid of all the excessive bolding, fixing the leads, re-labeling the results, and adding the electors sections. If you have any problems or anythng please just go on my talk page before reverting anything. Thanks.--Jerzeykydd (talk) 02:25, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

Election results bolding despite consensus[edit]

You can/should direct editors to Template talk:Infobox Election#Popular vote winner in bold? in your edit summary so if they wish they can re-discuss but cannot claim they didn't know about the existing consensus.--The Magnificent Clean-keeper (talk) 01:49, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

Nebraska & Maine[edit]

The best thing to do is to explain in detail in the lead of each election article how the process works and simply put the congressional district results first in the results section. The infoboxes should be kept the same unless if you want to create 2 seperate infoboxes for Maine and 3 for Nebraska. --Jerzeykydd (talk) 19:50, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

Ok, I have figured out a solution. Look at what I did for United States presidential election in Maine, 2008. I created 1 infobox and added the congressional district results inside. The only problem is that it doesn't come out that way. I don't understand how it works so I need some help. --Jerzeykydd (talk) 03:56, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

Labeling[edit]

I believe election articles should be distinguished between statewide, county, and congressional district. If it just say election results, it could be anything. It has to be specific. I made every presidential election article that way I am planning on keeping it that way.--Jerzeykydd (talk) 03:23, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

I still don't really agree with you but to avoid edit edit wars, I will accept your labeling policy of no "statewide results" for now. Sorry about the bolding, I'll try to help you to fix to the general census. Usually I don't give in so easily, but I'll let it go this time. But don't push it or I'll get pissed off because I do work very hard on improving election articles.--Jerzeykydd (talk) 00:14, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

Warning[edit]

Please do not revert my edits until you speak to me first. I did a lot of hard work in fixing several articles. Do not continue.--Jerzeykydd (talk) 21:52, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

Sorry[edit]

Look I didn't mean to offend you. If you haven't noticed I have fixed some mistakes, as far as getting rid of the labeling of statewide results and also getting rid of excessive bolding. Over the past few days, I have been editing all of the 2008 state election pages and fixing all of my mistakes. I have also went as far as improving all the articles, including fixing the leads and even adding a section explaining the electoral college process. As soon as you read this please respond in my talk page. Thanks.--Jerzeykydd (talk) 22:46, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

Resolution[edit]

I'm really happy that our personal conflict is over. And thanks for the websites. Here are some things I wanted to mention about election articles:

  1. For the lead, I like to put one paragraph for the ultra basic information, and than a second paragraph of the original in-depth results.
  2. As for that website I like to use, Dave Liep, I will begin to replace all the references to that site with the official government website numbers. (Most of which are in 2004 election pages).
  3. As for third parties combined in "others" I have only done that because I usually edit articles quickly and I try to finish quickly. Over the next few weeks I will revise all 2004 and 2000 presidential election pages by adding an electors section, basic lead, and replacing others with the actual third party candidates.
  4. I like the idea of a seperate section for congressional district/county results. I will simply name the section "Results Breakdown"
  5. Here is one problem I still have with you: I perfer to simplify the section names as small as possible. I'm OK with the main section labeled as Election Results. However, I perfer to label the subsections as By congressional district and By county. Anything wrong with that?

If there are any problems/concerns please go on my talk page so we can resolve everything before going into another edit war. Thanks.--Jerzeykydd (talk) 21:42, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Chelene Nightingale[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Chelene Nightingale requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. 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 biographies.

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. ttonyb1 (talk) 00:02, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

I've declined the nomination for speedy deletion; but if you want to save this article, you need to change those unacceptable in-line external links into properly formatted citations. See WP:CITE for how that is done. --Orange Mike | Talk 19:08, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

It wasn't me[edit]

You have unjustly accused me of changing the main photo on the 1928 election page. Someone else changed it, not I. You can confirm this by looking at the history. The only thing I changed was the little picture of Al Smith in the candidates gallery to match the big picture.--24.210.149.86 (talk) 03:52, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

It wasn't me in response to my comment: Your vandalism of the United States presidential election, 1928 article Your recent change to the photo of Al Smith constitutes vandalism and are part of a pattern of edit-warring! Over a period of time you have repeatedly changed the photo to one that does not reflect the reality of 1928. The photo's in the article should be from the period in which the election took place not from way before!! Please refrain from future non-constructive edits and if you have what you believe to be a valid reason for changing the photo bring it to the talk page (there is a discussion on this matter). Continued edit-warring and vandalism may result in having your editing privileges blocked so consider this your warning. Highground79 (talk) 03:45, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

My response to It wasn't me: YES you did vandalize the page and the history of the page proves that you knew you were committing vandalism. If you look at the edit history you changed the photo to File:AlfredESmith.png (from the Early 1920s) from File:AlfredEmanuelSmith.png (1928). When making an edit it is the responsibility of the editor to ensure that there edit is both constructive and factual. You easily could have changed the photos to ones from the correct year but you did not. The articles history clearly shows that you have changed the Al Smith photo several times to one which does not reflect the reality of 1928. Some of the rational you have stated in the past "Better picture of Smith" then when this was reverted (and it was explained why) you again claimed it was a "New picture of Smith" it was the same photo. You have repeatedly pushed the photo which is factually incorrect (you know this because it has been mentioned in the edit summary when your edits where reverted) and several editors have reverted your REPEATED vandalism (addition of incorrect photo) yet you continue to do the same thing so over and over (edit-warring). As to your complaint: "You have unjustly accused me of changing the main photo on the 1928 election page. Someone else changed it, not I. You can confirm this by looking at the history. The only thing I changed was the little picture of Al Smith in the candidates gallery to match the big picture"

I did not unjustly accuse you! The ENTIRE edit history of the article shows that you have pushed a photo that you know it not correct and you continue to do so! so while the edit history shows that you changed only the little picture of Al Smith in the candidates gallery, you knew from previous edits (which were reverted - and it was explained why) that you were changing it to a photo which does not reflect reality. The same photo which you have been edit-warring to have included as the main photo. If you did not have a history of willfully making non-constructive edits to the photo it could have been an accident but previous edits prove otherwise. So I did not unjustly accuse you, I merely called you out for the vandalism which you knowingly did to the article!!! Highground79 (talk) 04:43, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

One little question. Who is 98.116.91.153? It's not me buddy. From the posts on this page, it is obvious you are a person no one can get along with. And you are being extremely anal about the picture that me and 98.116.91.153 propose. That picture is from 1926, a mere 2 years off from the election. Why aren't you also throwing a fit over Roosevelt's picture in the elections of 1932, 1936, 1940, and 1944. One picture used over a 12 year period! I'm surprised that has not thrown you into an epileptic fit.--24.210.149.86 (talk) 05:46, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

Perfect Al Smith photo[edit]

Since none of us were happy with the compromise picture, I looked high and low for a different picture of Al Smith from 1928. I finally found the perfect picture of Smith. I had known about this picture for awhile but could never find a decent copy. However, I finally found it and uploaded it. This was the picture of Smith found on most of his campaign buttons in 1928. I hope this works. I think this is by far the best picture of Al Smith.--Tilden76 (talk) 07:18, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

Is this compromise picture alright with you? If it is, we need to do something about 82.16.113.24. This person keeps on changing it to the picture that got all of us fired up.--Tilden76 (talk) 18:02, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

Articles for deletion: Douglas Campbell (Michigan politician)[edit]

I notice you were one of the editors who participated in the original discussion on merging the Douglas Campbell (Michigan politician) article into Michigan gubernatorial election, 2006. The consensus was "The result was Not to merge into Michigan gubernatorial election, 2006."

It was recently deleted by a PROD without an AfD. I sucessfully requested that it be restored, but it is now facing an AfD. If you are still interested in this article, you may participate in the AfD discussion here:
