Welcome![edit]

Hello, Kelsievans, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Unfortunately, one or more of the pages you created, like Jay Blotcher, may not conform to some of Wikipedia's guidelines for page creation, and may soon be deleted.

There's a page about creating articles you may want to read called Your first article. If you are stuck, and looking for help, please come to the New contributors' help page, where experienced Wikipedians can answer any queries you have! Or, you can just type {{helpme}} on this page, and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions. Here are a few other good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date. If you have any questions, check out Wikipedia:Where to ask a question or ask me on my talk page. Again, welcome! Whpq (talk) 23:22, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

Warning,[edit]

As reviewing admin, I see some problems noted above:

perhaps you have not yet realized this, but unless you assert the license at the time of inserting the material, it will surely be deleted. See Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials for the details. Use the tags as specified there, and send the emails. Alternatively, put the necessary notice on the web pages themselves--this is even better.

Please do this also for all the ones you have contributed and were deleted. let me know, and I shall restore them.

Remember also that it is not considered acceptable to place a link here to every person whose papers may be in the Fales archives. If the archives are the major location for their papers, and there is a substantial collection, then an external link can be acceptable. If you do that, do not also add to the text of the article a statement that the papers are located there. One time is enough, and the external links section is the preferred place.

If you have any difficulty with either part of this, please get in touch with me by email from my user page. I have a considerable experience helping libraries with Wikipedia, having been a librarian myself since long before this project was started. DGG (talk) 01:32, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Hi, I am trying to add the appropriate tags to the pages. Can you please restore the pages that were deleted, like Audrey Wisberg and Jill Billy Rainsford. Thank you for your help and info.Kelsievans (talk) 18:33, 11 May 2009 (UTC)Kelsievans

Information.png Welcome to Wikipedia. The recent edit you made to Rose Strunsky Lorwin has been reverted, as it appears to have removed content from the page without explanation. Use the sandbox for testing; if you believe the edit was constructive, please ensure that you provide an informative edit summary. You may also wish to read the introduction to editing. Thank you. Excirial (Contact me,Contribs) 18:38, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

Per previous explanations, please do not add the same link more than once; if an URL is used as areference, it does not get listed under "External links". Thank you. --Ckatzchatspy 19:04, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

CSD nomination of Aubrey Wisberg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Aubrey Wisberg 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 verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

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.

biographical notes from Fales Library[edit]

Hi, is there a general release of all the biographical notes from the Fales Library? I keep seeing these speedy delete tags on material copied from http://dlib.nyu.edu/findingaids. Or are they being released as GFDL on a case by case basis? Graeme Bartlett (talk) 12:14, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

It was a general release. I have placed the OTRS pending tags on the pages. I was told this was all I had to do, but everyone seems to think differently. I am getting a little frustrated. Can you help?Kelsievans (talk) 14:13, 12 May 2009 (UTC)kelsievans

One suggestion is to place that OTRS permission in the edit summary when you make or edit the article. The policy then says no speedy delete for copyright infringement until this is considered, however many admins may fail to read it! Graeme Bartlett (talk) 23:51, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
It seems that 9 of your article were deleted, and put in again. I am restoring Liederkranz of the City of New York. Graeme Bartlett (talk) 00:01, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
I have added an edit notice for you at User talk:Kelsievans/Editnotice which appears as a header when someone edits your page. Feel free to change this, hopefully people who want to apply a delete tag will think again. Graeme Bartlett (talk) 00:12, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

Archiving[edit]

Hi. I have taken the huge liberty of archiving your talk page. The contents that I've removed are now located at User talk:Kelsievans/Archive 1, where you can access them but where they wont be in your way. I didn't want to archive too recently, so I've left some of the contents alone. I didn't archive the welcome in case you might find it useful. I've done this because I hoped it would be helpful to you. If the liberty is unwelcome, please accept my apologies. Let me know, and I will restore everything as it was. Meanwhile, I've replied to your comments on my talk page, here. I hope that the solution I offer there will reduce the frustration of your contributing. If you want to discuss the matter and how to implement it any further, I'm more than happy to do so there. Thanks. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 19:01, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the help and the archiving. Hopefully the tag you provided will clear everything up. Thanks again,Kelsievans (talk) 19:05, 12 May 2009 (UTC)Kelsievans

Ah, I've added the article to the top of this page too, as I {{copyvio}} tagged a couple of your articles today which were OTRS Pending-tagged and didn't go through your user page - this should make things clearer, I hope you don't mind. – Toon(talk) 19:16, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
I'm glad that my archiving wasn't unwelcome. I'm sorry for the complications you've encountered and for today's typos. I hope I'm making good sense. I'm trying a new migraine medication, and I'm afraid I'm a bit out of it! I think I'll retreat to a safe distance from my computer for a while. :) --Moonriddengirl (talk) 19:21, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

Hi, the tag has mostly worked. One page is still blocked as copyright infringment, Pleiades Club. Could you fix that? thank you so much.Kelsievans (talk) 15:56, 14 May 2009 (UTC)Kelsievans

Suggestion[edit]

The article I just deleted was clearly a copy of [1]. I realize that is also in the Fales Library, and you have obtained permission from them for some other material. It would make life easier for all of us if you could indicate the existence on the permission on the talk page, which would help avoid the deletion investigations and restoration steps.--SPhilbrickT 17:55, 29 December 2010 (UTC)

Hi, Kelsievans. Please remember to follow the directions at your userpage: User:Kelsievans. Every time you create an article with content from Fales, you should place the following on the article talk page, tildes and all:

{{Permission OTRS|2009042710062083}}Licensing under GFDL and CC-BY-SA. See [[User:Kelsievans]] for more information. --~~~~

That can help prevent this kind of confusion in the future. If there are articles that you have copied without that notice, please let me know, so we can work on getting permission logged. It may save the loss of content in the future! --Moonriddengirl (talk) 18:16, 29 December 2010 (UTC)

Terence Sellers[edit]

  • I am the person at the Fales Library using the Kelsievans username currently. I have recreated the Terence Sellers article in the Kelsievans sandbox and added further citations to the article. How does wikipedia determine "evidence of notability"? Wouldn't having their papers collected at a major research university constitute notability? Let me know how else I can indicate that on the page. Thank you for your help. — Kelsievans (talk · contribs) 2012 Jan 4 via e-mail

No, you did not create the article in the Kelsievans sandbox. You created it in the general Sandbox where it survived for 20 minutes before it was vandalisd. I have rescued it to User:Kelsievans/sandbox and its talk page.

I hope you read these comments on my user_talk page. I would still like to see an explicit statement on any Fales Library page which has been copied to Wikipedia saying "the biographical note is licensed under the GFDL / CC licences". It would help to prevent the frequent copyvio accusations that you have suffered from in the past.

As to User:Kelsievans/sandbox, please continue to add wikilinks as I have done in the first two paragraphs. You asked about "evidence of notability"? Surely WP:BIO makes that clear - we need significant coverage in reliable, independent secondary sources. Collection by the Fales Library is one such reference but the other two references are more about works by Terence. We need a couple more references to sources writing about her, preferably on the web. When you have done that, you may copy&paste the article and talk page to Terence Sellers and its talk page. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 14:40, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

Hi Roger, the links are about Ms. Sellers and not by her. Although she contributed to projects that are named in the articles and the film that are referenced, they are both critical works about her or that reference her, rather than works she created. I have posted the new article with the changes to the Terence Sellers page. Making statements on the Fales Library pages is difficult, as we are attached to the larger IT department of the NYU Library system and each change must be in accordance with their rules, etc. Why is the ticket on the talk page not enough?

Speedy deletion nomination of Institute on the Arts and Civic Dialogue[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Institute on the Arts and Civic Dialogue, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become encyclopedic. Please read the guidelines on spam and Wikipedia:FAQ/Organizations for more information.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here.
