Speedy deletion of 2PM[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on 2PM 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 band, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for musical topics.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the 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. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you. TNX-Man 13:19, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

Rogue software[edit]

hi Nailbiter, I noticed your recent edit on the Rogue software article, and I was impressed, are you interested in these types of articles? Sephiroth storm (talk) 14:22, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

Well, good job, and thank you. :) Sephiroth storm (talk) 01:10, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

Edit conflict on Obesity in the United States[edit]

Sorry about that accidental reversion; split-second edit conflict issue. Thanks! -Kgasso (talk) 08:13, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

Holography[edit]

Hi. As much as I dislike the section Holograms in fiction you removed, it was probably the most sought after, since it got really many edits. I therefore recommend to put it in again, or somebody will rewrite it even longer. --Danh (talk) 16:41, 27 August 2009 (UTC)

Multi-device support on btrfs[edit]

Hi, regarding your statement that you recently re-added to the btrfs article:

"Btrfs is intended to address the lack of a file system in Linux with pooling, snapshots, checksums and integral multi-device spanning—features crucial as the use of Linux scales upward into larger storage configurations common in the enterprise."

Now, I agree with the rest of the statement, but how is filesystem-level multi-device support crucial for enterprise storage? Enterprise storage systems just need multi-device support and don't care how it is implemented. Linux has supported multi-device block devices for over a decade, so I don't think it's relevant in this list. -- intgr [talk] 22:03, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

March 2010[edit]

Information.png Welcome to Wikipedia. The recent edit that you made to the page Wannarexia has been reverted, as it appears to be unconstructive. Please use the sandbox for testing any edits; if you believe the edit was constructive, please ensure that you provide an informative edit summary. You may also wish to read the introduction to editing for further information. Thank you. Shadowjams (talk) 06:49, 13 March 2010 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Optics (politics)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Optics (politics) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Wikipedia is not a dictionary; this seems to be a pure dictionary definition, with little potential to become a viable article.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.--Srleffler (talk) 04:37, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

Better source request for File:BRFSS obesity 1985-2006.gif[edit]

Thanks for your upload to Wikipedia:

You provided a source, but it is difficult for other users to examine the copyright status of the image because the source is incomplete. Please consider clarifying the exact source so that the copyright status may be checked more easily. It is best to specify the exact Web page where you found the image, rather than only giving the source domain or the URL of the image file itself. Please update the image description with a URL that will be more helpful to other users in determining the copyright status.
