Welcome![edit]

Howdy, KingAlanI, Welcome to Wikipedia!

Thank you for your contributions, you seem to be off to a good start. Hopefully you will soon join the vast army of Wikipediholics! If you need help on how to title new articles see the naming conventions, and for help on formatting the pages visit the manual of style. For general questions goto Wikipedia:Help or the FAQ, if you can't find your answer there check the Village Pump (for Wikipedia related questions) or the Reference Desk (for general questions)! There's still more help at the Tutorial and Policy Library. Plus, don't forget to visit the Community Portal. If you have any more questions after that, feel free to ask me directly on my user talk page.

Warring Factions[edit]

Warring Factions had already been deleted as non-notable in an Articles for Deletion discussion. You were recreating previously deleted content without adding anything new to address the non-notability of the subject. User:Zoe|(talk) 01:41, 28 May 2006 (UTC)

Merit badge[edit]

It is not true that a SM can sign off on certain mbs just because he's an SM. Per BSA rule, all MB counselors need to be registered and approved to sign mb cards. This includes SMs. Rlevse 03:31, 16 November 2006 (UTC)

Gleason Corporation[edit]

A tag has been placed on Gleason Corporation, 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 (see the guidelines for notability here). If you can indicate why the subject of this article is notable, you may contest the tagging. To do this, please add {{hangon}} on the top of the page and leave a note on the article's talk page explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself.

Please read the criteria for speedy deletion (specifically, articles #7) and our general biography criteria. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. - CobaltBlueTony 01:46, 6 December 2006 (UTC)

It's best to establish the notability of an article's subject when you create it, and add supporting references as soon as possible, or it will get challenged, as I did. FYI. Happy editing! - CobaltBlueTony 01:55, 6 December 2006 (UTC)

Sorry, I'm relatively new to Wikiedpia editing, in the future, I'll make sure to have a 'significant' article ready to go before I subit anything. Amazing how quickly you caught that, an example of the quality of Wikipedia. :) KingAlanI 01:59, 6 December 2006 (UTC)

Hi - a bit more detail on this I posted on the article talk page, and then realized it might make more sense here. You do seem off to a good start overall, and sorry we tend to come down so hard on articles about companies - Wikipedia gets a simply staggering amount of spam and so we do tend to jump on anything that looks like it MIGHT be spam. It's always a good idea to have some assertion of notability, and very preferably a good source, when you create an article. It doesn't have to be polished by any means, but it's very helpful to have at least one good source by our guidelines. Here's what I originally wrote:

Well, expand it quickly, and please do read our citation guidelines, our Verifiability guidelines, and our policy on original research. Unfortunately, personal interviews which have not been published and an official company website isn't enough to establish notability. I did a quick Google on the company's name in the news, and didn't find anything out there that establishes their notability by our standards. Just a couple articles of local interest. If this company has, say, been written up in a major business magazine as more than a 'puff piece', that's certainly worth mentioning. Perel 03:35, 6 December 2006 (UTC)

List of Civilization II units[edit]

Nuvola apps important yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article List of Civilization II units, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent 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. If you agree with the deletion of the article, and you are the only person who has made substantial edits to the page, please add {{db-author}} to the top of List of Civilization II units.

Speedy deletion nomination of K.Flay[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 K.Flay 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.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion, or "db", tag; if no such tag exists, then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hang-on tag is unnecessary), 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. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. ttonyb (talk) 05:22, 31 January 2011 (UTC)

Sorry this got deleted so quickly. When I suggested it might be resurrected, I was going on the strength of some of the recentish press coverage (e.g. http://www.google.com/search?q=K.Flay&oe=utf-8&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbo=u&tbs=nws:1&source=og&sa=N&hl=en&tab=wn). I think you ran into the problem of not referencing reliable sources such as the Washington Post, but instead linking directly to the artist's web page. I suspect if you re-formulated the reference list, you might have more luck. Take a look at WP:N and WP:RS for some help on this. Ronnotel (talk) 20:24, 31 January 2011 (UTC)
Yes, I could dredge up a few more sources (Pages relating to her being at SXSW 2010 come to mind), but most of the links to her page are actually convenient screengrabs of articles from other sources. I suppose I could make that clear in addition to adding sources. (The one link directly to her own site has the backstory for her song "Carry On", a tidbit on which it seems appropriate to cite a "right from the horse's mouth" source. :)) KingAlanI (talk) 22:12, 31 January 2011 (UTC)

I'm actually surprised that it was deleted so fast. She really was a significant artist in the nerdcore scene. Bananabananabanana (talk) 12:36, 22 June 2011 (UTC)

99 Bottles of Beer[edit]

Should this be edited in for comparison to Hello World as a programming-language teaching tool? I'm thinking it should. Be bold. Dessydes (talk) 08:46, 17 February 2011 (UTC)

99 Bottles of Beer edited to refer to this, Hello World program edited to link to this. I went for a simple one-sentence reference. KingAlanI (talk) 00:57, 18 February 2011 (UTC)
