7 Shot Screamers[edit]

A tag has been placed on 7 Shot Screamers, 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. Princess Tiswas 21:49, 26 November 2006 (UTC)

Hi
The problem isn't that the article was too short or too lacking in detail. It is that, for inclusion in Wikipedia, it fais to establish that the band is notable. For guidelines to a group's notability, it must meet one or more of at least these criteria:
1. Has had a charted hit on any national music chart, in at least one large or medium-sized country.[1]
2. Has had a record certified gold or higher in at least one large or medium-sized country.
3. Has gone on an international concert tour, or a national concert tour in at least one large or medium-sized country,[1] reported in notable and verifiable sources.[2]
4. Has released two or more albums on a major label or one of the more important indie labels (i.e. an independent label with a history of more than a few years and a roster of performers, many of which are notable).
5. Has been featured in multiple non-trivial published works in reliable and reputable media (excludes things like school newspapers (although university newspapers are usually fine), personal blogs, etc.).
6. Contains at least one member who was once a part of or later joined a band that is otherwise notable; note that it is often most appropriate to use redirects in place of articles on side projects, early bands and such.
7. Has become the most prominent representative of a notable style or of the local scene of a city; note that the subject must still meet all ordinary Wikipedia standards, including verifiability.
8. Has won a major music award, such as a Grammy, Juno or Mercury Music Award.
9. Has won or placed in a major music competition.
10. Has performed music for a work of media that is notable, e.g. a theme for a network television show. (But if this is the only claim, it is probably more appropriate to have a mention in the main article and redirect to that page.)
11. Has been placed in rotation nationally by any major radio network.
12. Has been the subject of a half hour or longer broadcast on a national radio or TV network.
You can look here for more. Hope this helps. Denni talk 22:28, 26 November 2006 (UTC)


No, it's not necessary to use Word - you can do all the editing right on the create article page. The only advantage to using Word is that you can do stuff like spelling and grammar checks, which the Wikipedia editor won't do.
I'll recover the article for you so that if you still want to continue it, you won't have to start from scratch. Just give me a few minutes, and I'll post it here for you. Denni talk 22:40, 26 November 2006 (UTC)


Here you go. Good luck in whipping it into shape. I can't stress enough how important it is that the article demonstrate notability in some way, or it will most likely be deleted again. (PS - You can add your signature and a timestamp to your posts by typing four tildes (~~~~)). Denni talk 22:43, 26 November 2006 (UTC)

Sorry - I wouldn't have restored the article's text for you if I had known you were just going to repost it as is. I was thinking you were going to modify it to meet at least a few of the requirements I listed for you. Reposting it in its present form will just get it deleted again. Many editors watch these pages, and articles which are reposted without obvious improvements are typically deleted quickly. Denni talk 23:04, 26 November 2006 (UTC)

Our deletion policy[edit]

Hi Lurcho, the article is no longer a candidate for Speedy Deletion, but it has been {{prod}}'ed which means someone proposes it's deletion, you can look in the page history to see who put the nn-band tag on it. To contest this, simply remove the {{dated prod}} template from the top of the article. Be aware, doing this, will send the article to AfD, or "Articles for Deletion", which will give the entire Wikipedia community a chance to vote and reach a consensus on whether or not to delete it. If you do not remove the {{prod}} template within 5 days, it will be deleted. Don't let this put you off editing though, hundreds of bands don't make it through Wikipedia. We can't let every single band in the world no matter the size have an article... For more information see The notability guidelines for bands. Peace out — Deon555talk 02:31, 27 November 2006 (UTC)

The article :), you basically have two options. To have the article deleted, do nothing. To try to save the article, remove the template. This will take it to AfD. :)Deon555talk 03:06, 27 November 2006 (UTC)
I encouraged you to remove the {{prod}} from the article. Not the {{db}} from the image. When you go to upload a file to Wikipedia, you are presented with a number of notices, one of them says this:
Red copyright.svg Do not upload images found on websites or on an image search engine. They will be deleted.
(For exceptions, see Wikipedia:Fair use and Wikipedia:Free image resources.)


I will replace the {{db}} on the Image. You'll have to find another one, that is GFDL, PD or self-created — Deon555talk 04:16, 27 November 2006 (UTC)
