Speedy Deletion of Northwest Minnesota Arts Council Page[edit]

Hello[edit]

===== I am realizing I erred when creating our Wikipedia page for Northwest Minnesota Arts Council, a 501(c)3 non-profit arts organization. I need to put the page under a sub category for "Arts Non-Profits in Minnesota", however, I do not see where I can do that.

Any help would be great appreciated. =====

@Moregalado: I'm not quite sure what you mean. The closest category I've found is Arts organizations based in Minnesota. You may want to read Wikipedia:FAQ/Categories and Wikipedia:FAQ/Categorization to understand how categories relate to articles.
In any case, categories are very much secondary to the article content itself. If you recreate Northwest Minnesota Arts Council, you'll have to address the concerns I had when I deleted it—WP:A7 and WP:G11. You might find our Articles for Creation process useful. larryv (talk) 21:01, 15 January 2016 (UTC)

Speedy Deletion of Assault Craft Unit TWO page... citing copyright infringement[edit]

The ACU2 Page was deleted because GLOBALSECURITY.org claims copyright over the words used on the page. But clearly, globalsecurity.org took them from the Navy page, "http://www.public.navy.mil/surflant/acu2/Pages/History.aspx". I work at the command, and can state that the Navy does not retain any copyright over the words used on the page, but wants to put the history of the command and any topic concerning the command in the Wikipedia sphere to be in line with other like commands. I will be starting a New ACU 2 page to get the FACTs of ACU2 out there. I will be using "http://www.public.navy.mil/surflant/acu2/Pages/default.aspx" and all pages associated with it as my source, which I quote and link to on the page. I will be changing the words to not match exactly. I want to CONTEST that globalsecurity.org has any special right to the words taken from the Navy Page. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Micah.weihert (talkcontribs) 14:51, 15 January 2016 (UTC)

@Micah.weihert: Sorry, I was unaware of the Navy website when I deleted the article. You're correct about the copyright status of U.S. federal government works, of course, but I'd recommend that you avoid quoting the site at all, to prevent possible future copyvio mixups. Simply present the information there in your own words and cite the site. larryv (talk) 20:07, 15 January 2016 (UTC)

Oneplus1[edit]

An article that you just deleted Oneplus1 was just put back. I renominated for speedy deletion G11 and A7. --Jersey92 (talk) 03:17, 16 January 2016 (UTC)

@Jersey92: Oy. I'll take a look, thanks. larryv (talk) 03:25, 16 January 2016 (UTC)

Deletions[edit]

I had objected to the deletions of

(Deletion log); 02:37 . . Larryv (talk | contribs) deleted page Category:Organizations based in France by subject ‎(C1: Empty category)
(Deletion log); 02:37 . . Larryv (talk | contribs) deleted page Category:Organisations based in the United Kingdom by membership ‎(C1: Empty category)

and had assumed that someone would reverse the out-of-process emptying rather than just ignore my efforts. I'd be grateful if you could at least restore these 2 cats + my objections. Oculi (talk) 08:22, 16 January 2016 (UTC)

Moreover Category:Organisations based in the United Kingdom by membership is not empty as I repopulated it 2 days ago. It is also at cfd (untagged). Oculi (talk) 08:25, 16 January 2016 (UTC)
I'd be grateful if you could restore the 2 categories mentioned above. The deleting admin is supposed to check the talk page before deletion. Oculi (talk) 18:15, 17 January 2016 (UTC)
@Oculi: Sorry for the trouble; I've restored the categories and their talk pages. I've added {{popcat}} to Organizations based in France by subject to prevent someone else from nominating it for speedy deletion again. larryv (talk) 00:48, 18 January 2016 (UTC)
Thanks - it was again speedied so I've re-populated it. It remains at cfd untagged. Oculi (talk) 02:02, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

Courtesy note about Draft:William Yang[edit]

Hi Larryv,
I have requested the undeletion of that draft article.
Not sure if that request put up one of those little red numerals with a bell icon after it, so doing it manually.

@Shirt58: I see someone else got to it before me! (FYI, {{re}} is an easy way of notifying users.) larryv (talk) 00:55, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

Restoring YottaSolutions[edit]

Hello Larryv, I would appreciate it if you can restore YottaSolutions article as a draft so I can work on it and modify it with specialists then submit it for reviewing if it's allowed or not yet. I can keep working until it's perfect for publishing. Thanks. Smith7700 (talk) 20:49, 25 January 2016 (UTC)

@Smith7700: No problem; I've restored it to Draft:YottaSolutions. When you're ready to submit it for review, just add {{subst:submit}} to the top. larryv (talk) 21:06, 25 January 2016 (UTC)
@Larryv: Can you please tell me what was the wrong with my article so I start working on it from there? I don't see any problem with it. Please guide me. Thanks. Smith7700 (talk) 21:12, 25 January 2016 (UTC)

need to restart work on BMGI page[edit]

Hi, I created this page https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:BMGI#BMGI It got deleted due to inadequate references. Can I restart working on this page ? Please help. Sujay — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sujaydeo (talkcontribs) 16:48, 1 February 2016‎

@Sujaydeo: I assume you mean Draft:Breakthrough Management Group International. Since that article went through a deletion discussion, I'm not really comfortable userfying it. I suggest that you request a deletion review instead. larryv (talk) 21:24, 2 February 2016 (UTC)

Afrocandy[edit]

Hello, the page Afrocandy does not meet Wikipedia's notability guidelines. She's clearly not notable in anyway whatsoever, have a look for yourself. The user Oshwah insists as if he has something personal to do with Afrocandy. I put a speedy deletion tag and it was removed by the user Oshwah many times and now he's saying something very strange that a person doesn't have to be proven notable to be on Wikipedia, please see his shocking comments on my talk page. None of what he has explained makes sense quite honestly. I'm bringing this to the attention of an admin because this page needs to be deleted. The sources quoted are blogs and she has made no impact on the Nigerian music industry, has won no awards and is not well known even in Nigeria. Do your own research please and see for yourself, all she has are small mentions. Please advise. Thanks PaulAshford (talk) 23:49, 1 March 2016 (UTC)
