Big Fight Special[edit]

Hi there, I see you know quite a bit about KYTV as you extended the entry for Brown Nose Day some weeks back. You think you can do me a small favour and make an edit or so on Big Fight Special? It's just that some halfhead wants to delete it where-as I distictly started the article in the hope that some might add bits to it and it would look a little one-sided if I did all the edits, and besides, it's a while since I've seen it and I can barely remember the Black guy's name!

  • Hi there. On the talk page, I posted my justification for why I think the page should not be deleted. Good to see someone else updating these pages. I will try and add some more info at the weekend. If the page are to be removed, I will happily publish the content elsewhere. I don't really understand why someone wants to remove your page, it's a good start!! JamminBen 12:14, 24 November 2006 (UTC)

Notability of Subdreamer[edit]

A tag has been placed on Subdreamer 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. Jackaranga 18:30, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

Re:Subdreamer[edit]

I can't undelete because I'm not an admin, if you would like the deletion to be reviewed you can go to WP:DRV Jackaranga 18:48, 9 September 2007 (UTC)

I have restored the article, as I did a little more research, and found myself to be in the wrong. My apologies for any problems, and happy editing! Jmlk17 06:03, 11 September 2007 (UTC)

Some policies to read[edit]

Hi, I will just give you a few links to read so you can hope to improve Subdreamer in a way which is satisfactory for wikipedia.

  • WP:NOTABILITY
  • WP:SPAM, in particular watch out for phrases taken from the official site, that sound like advertisements. (gives a very bad impression)
  • WP:EL, you need to read the first 3 rules on that page, the article doesn't satisfy any at the moment.
  • WP:DELETE can be interesting also. You really need to read this if you want to avoid being torn apart on deletion discussions, because at the moment I guess your arguments may be fairly convincing and we don't want to bite someone who doesn't know all the policies, but they lack weight, due to the fact you don't name any policies supporting your view (almost essential in a deletion discussion).
  • Obviously there is Help:Contents also, if you need to find anything else. Jackaranga 11:01, 12 September 2007 (UTC)
Thanks for the info. JamminBen 23:51, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

Oh yeah![edit]

Now I remember how to do a ref list! :) Sorry about that, I just couldn't remember how to do it. I've been searching for a while now trying to find something to help out your article. It just can't remain without any 3rd party, reliable sources that might make it noteworthy. Any suggestions? DigitalNinja 02:55, 14 September 2007 (UTC)

New direction; I've noticed there are a lot of websites that use this, specifically not-for-profit. Perhaps there is notable website that uses Subdreamer? I'll search for one, but you might help me also. If we can create a section of the article about it's "uses and/or purposefulness" with some examples I think that might do the trick. DigitalNinja 03:07, 14 September 2007 (UTC)
I'll have a look too, but I'm not sure that will be enough. We will see though. Thanks for the continued input! JamminBen 04:23, 14 September 2007 (UTC)

Why the heck did you remove Xaray from List of Content Management Systems?[edit]

It is a content management system - and it's is free. If you're going to delete that one, then you should delete ALL the CMS' on that page. If you have an issue with Xaraya the software, don't take it out on it here - it's not the forum for that. —Preceding unsigned comment added by FrogBoyGeorge (talkcontribs) 17:12, 18 October 2007 (UTC)

  • Thanks for the explanation - much appreciated. FrogBoyGeorge 13:27, 19 October 2007 (UTC)

Yuku[edit]

Did you start the article about Yuku? I think it can be improved. Also, it is not good policy to link to just a few communities. It is however much better now when you only link to Yuku official forums. I'm sorry I deleted links that didn't work. Feel free to find objective replacements. I don't use my hands when I'm using my computer, so my contributions are limited. I use DNS dictating program, which is hard and very slow.--{{subst:Babel-7|en-3|no|nn-2|sv-2|da-2|de-1|fr-1}} (talk) 13:26, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

Question about Edit[edit]

I recently updated the List of Content Management Systems page, to include an external link from the "Yes" in whether this system provides an online demo. The link that the "Yes" referenced, is hannonhill.com/products/cascade-server/demos, which is the page from Hannon Hill's site (makers of Cascade Server) that makes all versions of demos directly available.

You removed this link under the logic that it would "reduce SPAM on the page". In no way is this link SPAM, it is simply providing those who are interested in with easy access to requesting an online demo, if they so choose.

In no way do they have to pay for this demo, nor does the page the link references display any ads or material of that nature. Please reconsider your decision and allow us to do what our product focuses on- making information available easily and in a transparent manner for those who so choose to learn more. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.32.78.29 (talk) 01:42, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

I did not say that the link was spam. I removed it to discourage people from thinking it is OK to add external links to that page.
Please reconsider your decision and allow us to do what our product focuses on - Please bear in mind that Wikipedia is supposed to be unbiased. The following page provides more information: Wikipedia:NOT#ADVERTISING If you wish to "do what (the) product focuses on" then that is something for your own website. Wikipedia isn't the place to promote the product.
The list of content management systems is deliberately unbiased; it links to one article for every system listed but there are NO further links on the list for any of the systems that have been mentioned. Several other systems on the list have an online demo but no other system has a link.
As every entry on the list has an article, I think it would be better to put the link to the online demo within the article for Cascade Server rather than trying to put too much information on the list. JamminBen (talk) 08:46, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for June 29[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Printed.com, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Newcastle (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 10:41, 29 June 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Printed.com[edit]

You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles. See the Article Wizard.
Thank you.

A tag has been placed on Printed.com, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising that only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become an acceptable page. Please read the general criteria for speedy deletion, particularly item G11, as well as the guidelines on spam.

If you can indicate why the subject of this page is not blatant advertising, Speedy delete contest button.svg. Clicking that button will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. You are welcome to edit the page to fix this problem, but please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. As well as removing promotional phrasing, it helps to add factual encyclopaedic information to the page, and add citations from independent reliable sources to ensure that the page will be verifiable. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Tokyogirl79 (。◕‿◕。) 04:30, 25 October 2013 (UTC)
