Speedy deletion nomination of Thomas erl[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Thomas erl, 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 an encyclopedia article. Please read the guidelines on spam as well as Wikipedia:FAQ/Business for more information. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

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 - if no such tag exists then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hangon 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. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you. WuhWuzDat 18:24, 6 September 2010 (UTC)

License tagging for File:Canonical-protocol.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Canonical-protocol.jpg. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information; to add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia.

For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 20:07, 17 September 2010 (UTC)

Thomas Erl[edit]

I'm going to keep my notes to the page itself, but there is one point which I seem to correct over and over again, and you seem to miss the point. You keep wikilinking SOA. First, the link itself is wrong, since SOA is a dab page. If you really must link, link to SOA. Second, Service-oriented architecture is already linked at the lead. There is no need to do it again. I just felt this explanation will be better served here than as an edit summary. --Muhandes (talk) 19:41, 25 September 2010 (UTC)

Another recurring issue is me removing external links and you reinstating them. Please peruse WP:EL as to what can be added and where. I'd also like to point out that the article is about the person, Thomas Erl. I removed much material which was not directly about him. I might have overdone it a bit, and I apologize if I did. Feel free to add material back as long as it is about him, not about SOA, SOA patterns, etc., which belong in their own articles. --Muhandes (talk) 19:56, 25 September 2010 (UTC)

Hi Muhandes - Thank you for your message. I am new to Wikipedia and there does seem to be a lot to learn. I appreciate your assistance as I do not understand why the warnings from the page have not been removed. I read a lot of pages on Wikipedia about different people and Erl's doesn't seem much different in context, importance and verifiability. I am trying to successfully build my first page. I will reread the pages you suggested for reference. Thanks. --KirbyKirby2010 (talk) 17:08, 28 September 2010 (UTC)

I removed the notability tag. The remaining tag is a refimprove tag. It means that the article needs additional citations since some facts are not verified. For example, it says that he was born in 1967, this isn't verified. It says that he is Canadian-born. It says that he is series editor of the Prentice Hall Service-Oriented Computing Series from Thomas Erl, and editor of the SOA Magazine. Neither are verified. In essence, every fact that is in the article needs a verifiable source. The fact that other articles in the same state is no excuse. With over 3 million articles, many do not get the needed attention. We try to improve what we can, and believe in time the other articles will be improved as well. See WP:OTHERSTUFFEXISTS. --Muhandes (talk) 19:26, 28 September 2010 (UTC)
