"Mysterious and unknowable rules"[edit]

There are no mysterious and unknowable rules. Just take a look at WP:CSD, WP:NOTABILITY, WP:V, WP:RS, WP:BIO, WP:MUSIC, etc. User:Zoe|(talk) 21:06, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

Or just actually read the notes on the deletion discussion page, and follow the link to Wikipedia:Deletion review. Argyriou (talk) 21:33, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

Attn interested readers: Prior to quitting, this guy actually got some of his Wikipedia gripes printed in the local paper!

Disambiguation link notification for November 25[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Stewart Chen (politician), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Alameda. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 10:26, 25 November 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Death of Raymond Zack[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 Death of Raymond Zack 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, a group of people, an individual animal, an organization (band, club, company, etc.), web content, or an organized event, 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. reddogsix (talk) 03:03, 11 January 2016 (UTC)

Reliable sources[edit]

Re your edit here:

  1. Please don't mark reverts or other major edits as "minor edits."
  2. None of these cited sources is reliable (see WP:RS):
  • One is an undergraduate blog post created as part of a class project.
  • Another is a web forum.
  • The last is an opinion piece by an obscure commentator in a fringe-y blog.

None of these are usable. Neutralitytalk 20:42, 16 August 2017 (UTC)

    1. What exactly is your problem with it? The very existence of this links proves that "People across the United States blogged or commented about the event, expressing shock" - it's not the content, but the *presence* that verifies that people "blogged or commented." Not to mention any number of citable news articles.
