Speedy deletion nomination of Caffeine Energy Drink[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg
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 Caffeine Energy Drink, 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 and Wikipedia:FAQ/Business for more information.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} 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 hang-on 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. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. GtstrickyTalk or C 06:26, 22 October 2010 (UTC)

  • Regarding Caffeine Energy Drink, you asked: "Why should Caffeine Energy Drink not be included and most other energy drinks on the market are?" Well, for two reasons: because this (your?) drink has just been introduced to the market and doesn't seem to meet the notability guidelines (the primary criterion is: did the article's subject attract significant coverage in reliable third-party sources?), and because it seems to have been created to promote he drink (it has no third-party references and only cites material connected to the drink's maker). (And, by the way: if you dispute the speedy deletion of an article, you should just add the {{hangon}} tag under the speedy deletion notice. You shouldn't remove the original notice, because the administrator who is going to review the article needs to know why it was nominated in the first place.) - Mike Rosoft (talk) 09:17, 22 October 2010 (UTC)

It has significant third party coverage. There is at least a dozen or so third party sites that have absolutely no connection with the drinks maker. My personal involvement came about due to a recent interview I had with the creator of the drink. Being a representative of a Nashville Magazine, I thought it was important that this drink was noted. I set out to learn how to create a wiki article for the company after learning that they were not sure how to have one created about their company.
