Speedy deletion of Lint center[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Lint center, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article seems to be blatant advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become an encyclopedia article. Please read the guidelines on spam as well as Wikipedia:FAQ/Business for more information.

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 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 would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you. LAAFansign review 23:48, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

I removed the speedy deletion tag but in order for this article to stay on Wikipedia, you need to find some independent sources to show that the subject is notable. Please read up on our notability and verifiability guidelines. --Ron Ritzman (talk) 00:11, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of James R. Lint[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on James R. Lint requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words.

If the external website belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must include on the external site the statement "I, (name), am the author of this article, (article name), and I release its content under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.2 and later." You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

Please don't repost copyrighted material[edit]

Stop hand nuvola.svg Please do not add copyrighted material to Wikipedia without permission from the copyright holder, as you did to Lint center. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material; such additions will be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

Copyrighted material[edit]

Hi Tim. The details about our policy on copyrights is here: Wikipedia:Copyright FAQ. In short: Wikipedia is made available under a free license, the Gnu Free Documentation License, which allows redistribution and modification of the contents for any purpose as long as proper attribution is given. So any material that you add to Wikipedia has to be available according to that license too. (In fact, if you look at the bottom of the screen when you are typing an article or a message in Wikipedia, it says "You irrevocably agree to release your contributions under the terms of the GFDL.") Material that is already copyrighted by someone else, like the descriptions from lintcenter.org, can't be released under the GFDL without certain specific actions. Just having permission isn't enough.

If you hold the copyright to this text and permit its use under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License: Explain this on this article's discussion page, then either display a notice to this effect at the site of original publication or send an e-mail from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en at wikimedia dot org or a postal letter to the Wikimedia Foundation. These messages must explicitly permit use under the GFDL.

Please be aware that doing this means your material can be redistributed and modified for any use whatsoever. Also, articles on Wikipedia must be written from a neutral point of view and must be verifiable in published third-party sources; copyright issues aside, your text may not be appropriate for inclusion in Wikipedia.

I hope this helps! Copyright is very important to Wikipedia, but it can be a complex issue. Regards, FreplySpang 01:34, 14 October 2008 (UTC)
