Proposed deletion of Svatopluk Němeček[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Svatopluk Němeček has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, this newly created biography of a living person will be deleted unless it has at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within seven days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. Nat Gertler (talk) 18:41, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

Need sources for recent BLPs[edit]

Hello — I noticed you created a number of short articles in the English Wikipedia based on (longer) articles from the Czech project. That's a great start, thank you! but those articles need reliable sources. Biographical articles about living people need at least one reliable source each, even for brand-new articles. See WP:Proposed deletion of biographies of living people. Don't be surprised if you see “proposed for deletion” entries for each article that doesn't have a source, tagged by various other editors as they notice them. The one I noticed was Martin Stropnický, and a quick comparison with the Czech page showed me lots of sources there, so perhaps migrating some of those to the English side might be straightforward?  Unician   23:44, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

2016 PSOE leadership crisis[edit]

Hey! Thanks for your copyediting efforts at 2015–16 Spanish government formation#PSOE leadership crisis (September 2016). I note you that I'm now bringing most of the content into a specific article to elaborate on the PSOE crisis, since the other one should focuse most in those key events of the crisis that affect most to the government formation process (with more detail put within the PSOE crisis' own article). You can check that article to keep the copyediting effort there at leisure, as well as to keep yourself up to date with the most recent events within the crisis if you wish, as I'll be surely adding most of the new information there rather than in the government formation article. Cheers! Impru20 (talk) 21:30, 29 September 2016 (UTC)

  • Don't worry, you only reverted a small edit (uncapitalization of Federal Committee/Federal Executive/CF/CEF and such. I've already reinstated the edit (without reverting your changes) + added a little more "interesting" info of today's events. Impru20 (talk) 13:57, 30 September 2016 (UTC)

Removal of Candy (Georgian band)[edit]

Hi. I noticed that a month ago, you redirected Candy (Georgian band) to Georgia in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2011. This appears to be in conflict with the interests of Objective 2 of WikiProject_Eurovision, stating that artists are entitled to have their own page as well as a page dedicated to their country's involvement in the contest for that year. Because Candy won the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, it seems that redirecting their page is unnecessary. I'd be keen to discuss the reasons for this redirect, and will gladly stand corrected if I have misunderstood your reasons for the removal of Candy's page. Nevertheless, thank you for your contributions. Tuxipedia (Talk) 9:59, 16 February 2017 (UTC)

User:Tuxipedia, I was simply clearing the merge backlog. The rationale for the merge was stated at Talk:Georgia in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2011 by User:Wesley_Mouse, in reference to this AFD discussion. For what it's worth I completely agree with this consensus; if the artist in question has done nothing other than be their country's entry for Eurovision in a particular year, why not merge the articles to make it easier for the reader to find the information they want. For me it's not a question of a subject being "entitled" to an article - having a Wikipedia article is not a prize. The only thing we should focus on is the readers of the encyclopedia. Jdcooper (talk) 21:08, 15 February 2017 (UTC)
@Tuxipedia and Jdcooper: For what it is worth, Objective 2 of WikiProject_Eurovision predates the most recent changes to Wikipedia policies. Following this AFD discussion the criteria for stand-alone articles on Junior Eurovision participants changed, and now only the top 3 placed artists from any Junior Eurovision contest will qualify for an article in their own right, per criteria 9 of WP:MUSICBIO (which reads "Has won first, second or third place in a major music competition."). If any junior participant fulfills other criterion of WP:MUSICBIO, then they may still qualify for an article. Objective 2 of Project Eurovision is so out-dated that a review of all the project's objectives is required. Wes Mouse Talk 13:22, 17 February 2017 (UTC)
@Wesley Mouse: For example, the following JESC participants in recent years still haven't had an article. These include Sergio (Spain 2003), Tom Morley (United Kingdom 2003), Cory Spedding (United Kingdom 2004), Antonio José (Spain 2005), Arevik (Armenia 2007), Sasha Lazin (Russia 2010), Liza Drozd (Russia 2010), Funkids (Georgia 2012), Compass Band (Armenia 2012), Michael Varosyan (Armenia 2015), Anahit Adamyan (Armenia 2016), Mary Vardanyan (Armenia 2016), and Fiamma Boccia (Italy 2016). 108.16.135.184 (talk) 19:58, 25 February 2017 (UTC)
