Speedy deletion of Chicken farm[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Chicken farm requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the article (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article 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 article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

A tag has been placed on A cat like me, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done for the following reason:

not encyclopaedic

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not meet basic Wikipedia criteria may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as an appropriate article, and if you can indicate why the subject of this article is appropriate, you may contest the tagging. To do this, 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, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm its subject's notability under the guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Pishogue (talk) 20:43, 24 November 2007 (UTC)

Duplicate images uploaded[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Hammy the Syrian Hamster.JPG. A machine-controlled robot account noticed that you also uploaded the same image under the name Image:Carol1 019.JPG. The copy called Image:Carol1 019.JPG has been marked for speedy deletion since it is redundant. If this sounds okay to you, there is no need for you to take any action.

This is an automated message- you have not upset or annoyed anyone, and you do not need to respond. In the future, you may save yourself some confusion if you supply a meaningful file name and refer to 'my contributions' to remind yourself exactly which name you chose (file names are case sensitive, including the extension) so that you won't lose track of your uploads.

Dogs Life Hints[edit]

I've added a "proposed deletion" tag to Dogs Life Hints. Wikipedia is not a game guide. Marasmusine (talk) 11:13, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

Dogs Life Hints[edit]

Nuvola apps important yellow.svg

Another editor has added the {{prod}} template to the article Dogs Life Hints, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but the editor doesn't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and has explained why in the article (see also Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not and Wikipedia:Notability). Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia or discuss the relevant issues at its talk page. If you remove the {{prod}} template, the article will not be deleted, but note that it may still be sent to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. BJBot (talk) 11:59, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

This article probably won't get saved from deletion because it's a game guide with no encyclopaedic info and there is already an encyclopaedic article on the game. You should try to add an external link to Dogs Life pointing to a non-wikipedia article that contains a game guide/cheats/FAQ etc. --Enric Naval (talk) 14:45, 16 February 2008 (UTC)
Also, as an aside, links to other pages inside wikipedia should go under a section called "See also" and not under "External links". Don't put too many links or they will be removed per WP:EL style guideline --Enric Naval (talk) 14:45, 16 February 2008 (UTC)
I see that there was a link to Dogs Life Info. That sort of articles should be merged into the main article from the game, and then separated only when the main article gets too big. If you add those informations on the main article and they get deleted because they don't belong, then you can try to make a separate article, but make sure to warn on the talk page and on the edit summary that you already tried to place them on the main article and got told to put it on a separate article, thsi way your page may not get marked for deletion. the edit summary is right under the edit box where you write the page's content while editing a page --Enric Naval (talk) 14:45, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

Dogs Life Info[edit]

AfD nomination of Dogs Life Info[edit]

I have nominated Dogs Life Info, an article you created, for deletion. I do not feel that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Dogs Life Info. Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time. —Bkell (talk) 14:54, 11 March 2008 (UTC)

March 2008[edit]

Regarding your use page, I must warn you that per WP:NOT, Wikipedia is not a blog, webspace provider or social networking site. I quote "Wikipedians have their own user pages, but they may be used only to present information relevant to working on the encyclopedia.". Your user page appears to be violating this policy. You can find networking sites like Myspace that will happily host your personal information. If you don't reword on a few days your user page to adapt it to WP:NOT, I'll have to ask an admin to look at it.

Also, I quote, "Please upload only files that are used (or will be used) in encyclopedia articles or project pages; anything else will be deleted". Your Image:Hammy_in_his_wheel.jpg image seems to be an image intended only for personal use on your user page, and it's not being used on any actual article, and you have already uploaded Image:Hammy_the_Syrian_Hamster.jpg which is already used on the Syrian hamster article. I don't oppose that you upload one personal image for your user page, but please try to use images already used on wikipedia articles. --Enric Naval (talk) 12:55, 17 March 2008 (UTC)

Are there any pages where i could put my picture of Hammy in his wheel, and then it not be deleted?Melon247 (talk) 13:43, 17 March 2008 (UTC)
The Hamster article already has a photo of a syrian hamster doing a bath, maybe you can add it to the gallery, stating how hamsters need to make exercise, but you will need a better photo, since yours is very blurry, the nose is partially ocluded by the wheel, so you should try repeating until you get a better one --Enric Naval (talk) 14:24, 17 March 2008 (UTC)
Try Hamster_wheel, read its talk page --Enric Naval (talk) 14:25, 17 March 2008 (UTC)

I uploaded a new picture, Image:Hammy Excersising.jpg and I would like to know if this one is alright.

This one looks better. You can try to replace the one on the hamster wheel article, since it's already disputed as inadequate. Or maybe add your photo with a label of "Plastic hamster wheel", and retag the other one to "Steel hamster wheel" --Enric Naval (talk) 15:11, 17 March 2008 (UTC)

Lion photo[edit]

I uploaded the photo Image:Lion at Paignton zoo.jpg and I was wondering if I could put it on the lion page, the only problem is there was a bit of a crowd round the enclosure when I took it, so you can see some boys infront of me. I do, however, have a photo that I took when I had a chance to get to the front of the crowd, but the lion is facing the wrong way. Melon247 (talk) 20:38, 17 March 2008 (UTC)

You can use a photo editing program like irfanview [1] or Photoshop to crop the image and leave only the lion on it. P.D.: I tried to do it myself, and I got this [2] --Enric Naval (talk) 09:22, 18 March 2008 (UTC)

I don't think i have either of those things but I used PAINT instead and I uploaded the new photo Image:Lion at zoo.jpg which looks a lot better. You can't see the lions paws now, but they were all muddy anyway because of the ground.

cool. I requested my own version to be deleted, since it was no longer necessary. --Enric Naval (talk) 09:53, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

I put one of those deletion tage on the old photo, I didn't know if there was a way to instantly delete it, but it will proberably be deleted soon anyway.

ok --Enric Naval (talk) 10:33, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

By the way, are you and the other people who write about things on the talk pages people who created Wikipedia? Just asking. Melon247 (talk) 13:37, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

Hehe, no, it was created by User:Jimbo. I just came here to edit a few articles about history and stayed here to edit stuff --Enric Naval (talk) 13:43, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

Joke Pages[edit]

Is there a page thats made especially for Jokes? Or is there some template that I can use and make my own joke page? Melon247 (talk) 14:23, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

No, there isnt' any. This is a website for making an encyclopaedia, not a social place for users to make funny pages. Some users make hidden pages and wait to see if someone finds them, but that's all. If you really want to make funny stuff, then better do it somewhere else and use wikipedia only to add "serious" stuff, because if you do it at wikipedia then chances are that one day you find that all your joke pages have been deleted --Enric Naval (talk) 15:34, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

Ok, I'll forget about a Joke page

Pawly Pets Pic[edit]

I created an artical about the game Pawly Pets: My Animal Hospital but it needs a picture. I tried uploading several different pictures, but every time it came up with an error saying 'The file has become corrupt or has an incorrect extension.' What does this mean, because I don't think they become corrupt, once I used a picture that I had only just made! Melon247 (talk) 15:05, 22 March 2008 (UTC)

Could you find someone to get a picture of the front cover if I can't work out what it means?

what extension does the file have? Can you open it on paint to check if it is really corrupted? have you tried opening on a image editing program, saving as a jpg and uploading the jpg? --Enric Naval (talk) 16:43, 22 March 2008 (UTC)

I tried opening it in PAINT and it was fine, and no, I haven't tried that, but I can't find a photo editing program, so I'll use paint instead.

I saved it as a jpg, and still it said the same thing.

when you need help[edit]

you could try the {{helpme}} template for when you need help. Just put the template on your talk page with your request for help, and a volunteer will answer you --Enric Naval (talk) 14:33, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Pawly Pets Cover.jpg)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Pawly Pets Cover.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 12:33, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

I uploaded it but someone uploaded a different one to replace the one I uploaded so thats why it was orphaned. Melon247 (talk) 09:20, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

Book Website[edit]

{{helpme}} Are there any wiki pages on fictional books? I know theres wikibooks, but thats just for books that give you instructions on things.Melon247 (talk) 19:24, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

Hi there. Are you referring to fiction novels presented in full on a wiki site? If so, then likely not, unless the novel is a work that has fallen into public domain (in which case it would be on Wikibooks if anywhere). More modern fictional works are copyrighted, which means we would not be able to produce the work in full on any of our sites. Let me know if you need more information. Huntster (t@c) 23:50, 18 April 2008 (UTC)
Category:Fiction books contains articles about these books, but as Huntster said, we don't have the text of any of them here. Hersfold (t/a/c) 23:57, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

Puppy in my Pocket[edit]

Hi whoever is reading this, I remember a while ago looking for a page about Puppy in my Pocket, and it said it had been deleted by someone just because they didn't like the product! Anyhow, it doesn't come up with that anymore so I was wondering if there's some kind of special page with a list of deleted pages. Thanks Melon247 (talk) 16:32, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

Only admins can see deleted pages, and I suppose that only them can see a list of deleted pages, due to the problems it could cause if the list was available to normal users. If you click on "Special pages" on the manue on the left (the last link) it lists all special pages on wikipedia. If you can't find it there, then it probably doesn't exist. --Enric Naval (talk) 17:38, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Jeremy Strong[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Jeremy Strong, 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.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because 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. res2216firestar (talk) 18:44, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

I contested the prod and added a pair of sources. Melon, I suggest that you take this website[3] and add those details to the article. This article probably also needs the list of awards here[4], the author comments from here[5], and some details from here [6], and biographical details [7], visit to a school on Kuala Lumpur [8].
If you really want to be throught with it, you can also listen to the interview made to him [9] :) Just be sure to cite the time at which the statement was made, for example 10:20 for a statement made 10 minutes and 20 seconds into the mp3.
I added the article to my watchlist, so I'll help you to write it a bit. --Enric Naval (talk) 19:48, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

The Pet Finders Club[edit]

I was thinking about creating a page for all the books in The Pet Finders Club series but considering that the other book articles I made were deleted is there any point in me bothering? I've read the whole series nine times so that's why I had the idea but I guess all ideas I have on Wikipedia seem to be rubbish in everyone else's view. Melon247 (talk) 17:47, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

First I was thinking everyone was ignoring me but now I've seen how much busier it is on this site compared to strategywiki... If anyone ever notices me saying this, should I try making a Pet Finders club article? Melon247 (talk) 19:06, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

{{helpme}} Ok, now I'm getting desperate. All I want to do is find out whether it is worth the time making the article or whether it will be deleted within five minutes. If someone answers at least you won't have to bother with a deletion debate. Melon247 (talk) 18:55, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

Your best bet is to go read the guide to creating your first article. If the subject is notable and has reliable sources, go for it. The worst that can happen is that it gets deleted; either way you'll learn something. Cheers. //roux   18:58, 4 February 2009 (UTC)
Hmmm, think I'll create the article sometime and see what sources I can provide and then see what happens. Melon247 (talk) 19:06, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

{{helpme}}

I just found out that on the page for Ben Baglio, the author of the books, it has about some of the serieses he wrote. Should I add The Pet Finders Club there? And also I hope I'm not overusing this 'help me' thing but if I don't use it no-one notices me. Melon247 (talk) 20:00, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

guiness book citation[edit]

About Talk:Dog's Life#World_Record, just put to the article and put bibliographical information of the book: full title, author (Guiness foundation, I suppose), year of edition, ISBN, and the number of the page where the info is. Don't worry for the citation format or for using {{cite book}}, if you don't know how to use them then other editor will fix it later. --Enric Naval (talk) 17:39, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

May be a problem: I just looked in the book in the book shop. I don't actually have it. Melon247 (talk) 18:34, 27 February 2009 (UTC)
The book is this one? [10] Do you remember the year of the edition? --Enric Naval (talk) 21:38, 27 February 2009 (UTC)
It was the 2009 edition. Melon247 (talk) 09:37, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
Then this reference will do:
The official website of the book has a preview of a few pages, and I used them to add some stuff to GTA articles. I'll add this to the article, and you should go back to the library and peek again at the book to find the exact page number ;) --Enric Naval (talk) 13:40, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Bird image[edit]

I have this photo I took at Living Coasts of this flock of some sort of waterbirds. I wanted to have a look on the article to see if it needed any image but the problem is I have no idea what kind of bird it is. I guess it's sort of ibis-shaped, with mainly white feathers and black on the top of their heads. They also have black and white wings. Anyone know what kind of birds they might be? (The only other option as I see it is to upload the image and delete and reupload it if anyone knows what they are). Melon247 (talk) 16:28, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

"Should this be cited?"[edit]

Of course! That you bothered to mention it in an edit summary speaks for itself. Generally, if in doubt, cite. It's better to have an extra reference or two than to have an article peppered with rumours that nobody's sure how to confirm.

Your Sig[edit]

I noticed you use a template for your signature... you should read WP:SIG#NT - I'm sorry, but template signatures are forbidden. – jaksmata 13:53, 14 July 2009 (UTC)

Fixed my signature, I'll have to put a delete template on my sig page. Sig testing spaces aren't forbidden, are they? (As in the space in my sandbox where I create sigs) --Melon247 talk 16:38, 14 July 2009 (UTC)
No, there's no problem with keeping the testing space/sandbox. – jaksmata 18:09, 14 July 2009 (UTC)

IRC[edit]

{{helpme}} Is there an IRC for wikipedia that doesn't use freenode (that works on IE)? I know there's one for wikia. --Melon247 talk 16:47, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

IRC is not an application, it's a protocol, like HTTP. There are many client programs that can be used to connect to IRC networks. There are even some that work through your browser, such as this or this.
For a list of some other, more full-featured client programs, see WP:IRC#Accessing_IRC.

Non-free rationale for File:Petz Catz 2 screenshot.JPG[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Petz Catz 2 screenshot.JPG. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 21:28, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Speedy deletion nomination of Andrew Cope[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 Andrew Cope 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 real person or group of people, but it does not credibly 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 read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

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 "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. Toddst1 (talk) 04:11, 4 August 2017 (UTC)
