Welcome!

Hello, Noodlesteve, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Unfortunately, one or more of the pages you created, like Lesser Of Two, may not conform to some of Wikipedia's guidelines for page creation, and may soon be deleted.

Hey![edit]

Sorry about the late reply, I just got your message about the possible deletions of your topics. Did you get them resolved now? I'm looking at your pages and they look pretty pro. Wardrich (talk) 05:34, 17 June 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Lesser Of Two[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Lesser Of Two 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 or musician, but it does not 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 see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for musical topics. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

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 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. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you. -- BigDom 22:44, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

Notability Guidelines for Music[edit]

Hi! Noticed that you've created a few articles on bands. Awesome that you have decided to contribute. As you know, two of your articles have been nominated for speedy deletion. Thank you for indicating why you think they should not be deleted on their talk pages -- that's the right way to do things, and it's commendable. I do not have final say so on whether an article actually gets deleted or not, but I wanted to link you to the article listing the guidelines for notability governing music. Check this out. The word "notable" has a very specific meaning on Wikipedia, depending on the type of article it's being used to describe. In this case, the articles you are creating -- in my opinion, anyway -- are not "notable" because they fail to meet any of the notability guidelines. That said, do not want to dissuade you from continuing to contribute. If you can find significant independent coverage of any of these bands that would go a long way toward demonstrating notability. ɠǀɳ̩ςεΝɡbomb 00:02, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

Articles for deletion nomination of Embers (band)[edit]

I have nominated Embers (band), an article that you created, for deletion. I do not think that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Embers (band). 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.

Do not give up[edit]

I can not help you avoid the proposed deletion of the two articles you created; but please do not get discouraged about potential further editing on Wikipedia. You may have been a little ambitious in trying to create new articles so soon after 'enlisting', and might benefit from some general editing to 'get a feel' of the place. There are many (way too many) editors who seem to have no other ambition than to destroy, disrupt, revel in pointless arguments, and/or vandalise Wikipedia - it is good to find someone who has the right approach. Plenty of editors (see above comments) will, I know, lend a helping hand if you are only brave enough to ask. Best wishes,

Derek R Bullamore (talk) 21:50, 3 February 2010 (UTC)

I was the editor who nominated Embers for AfD, and I want to second everything Derek says here. It's a lot easier to nominate articles for deletion when they're written by editors who have no good faith and are here to disrupt, misinform, and do lots of other general nastiness. It completely sucks to do this sort of thing when the article is coming from an editor who clearly has the best of intentions, and particularly so when the editor puts in so much work (as you have) in trying to find reliable sourcing for their article. So...please do not get discouraged, regardless of how it all goes (and, given lack of participation in the AfD, I have no idea how it's all going to go, heh), because content creators coming from a good faith standpoint are what makes this whole thing work, and that's you. Also, in terms of action you can take to help your cause on the article, anything you can do to prove the Decibel coverage (I still can't find stuff on the Web site -- actually looked tonight in the hope that it might be there) would massively reduce any notability issues, and notability is the only real concern with the article. Again, you've done an awesome amount of work on finding sources, it's just that with the exception of the Decibel source, the sources don't pass verifiability (ie blogs, Myspace, non-notable music review sites, other band sites, etc.). Anyway, just thought some additional "do not give up" coming from a source of your troubles on here might be at least interesting, hehe. Good luck, take care, keep it up, all that stuff. ɠǀɳ̩ςεΝɡbomb 05:37, 5 February 2010 (UTC)

I noticed you copy/pasted most of this article from their myspace..this is plagarism and will be removed so you might want to fix that up and write it in your own words. ScarTissueBloodBlister (talk) 03:17, 5 February 2010 (UTC)

Let's Drop This on AfD[edit]

Hey Noodle-

Feel like we're old sparring partners now, hehe.

Just posted a thought on the rapidly expanding AfD debate. I posted my list of your refs with my thoughts, and you posted a responding list which attempts to rebut. I'm sure we both think each of our lists are -far- more valid than the other's. Regardless, I just now posted a note, basically suggesting you and I both walk away from this for the time being. The two disagreeing ref lists are probably the best summary either of us can offer at this point, and we're basically both now guilty of just jamming up the conversation with endless walls of text. So...truce? Let's just watch the conversation unfold, see what people say, and bite our tongues if we feel the urge to jump in. We've both said everything we can probably say at this point. Let's trust the process.

Frankly, a second part of my motive in making this request is that I want to avoid this getting actually heated. We've both done a pretty good job of not going after each other and instead focusing on the topic at hand, but if one lets debates like this go on ad infinitum things almost inevitably start getting off topic, and then boldface text starts creeping in, and before you know it there's all this shit in CAPS LOCK and oh god now an admin has swung by to yell at us and report us to WP:WQA.

Just my two cents.

(I did write that I objected to two things you wrote at the end of your last post that seemed to put words/thoughts in my mouth...what I did not do was go another round arguing content, quality, verifiability, notability, bla bla bla) ɠǀɳ̩ςεΝɡbomb 05:22, 11 February 2010 (UTC)

Disappointed in your response, but it's your prerogative, ultimately. Take care. ɠǀɳ̩ςεΝɡbomb 04:42, 12 February 2010 (UTC)

Re AfD for Lesser of Two[edit]

Hi Noodlesteve, thanks for your message. Sorry I'm unable to to be of much help to you. I usually only find these articles because they show up in my lists of things that are broken and/or need to be fixed or finessed in some way to enhance functionality. In this case, I know absolutely nothing about the subject whatsoever. I do however, wish you the very best of luck at AfD. Regards. -- WikHead (talk) 08:59, 12 February 2010 (UTC)

Please don't lie[edit]

I noticed that you wrote on Scartissue's talk page something to the effect that it "would have been nice if the AfD nominator had told me that they were trying to delete my Embers article." Please don't misrepresent the situation. The message I sent you the instant I submitted your article to AfD is still on your talk page, and it clearly states what's going on. You are not helping your case by misrepresenting my actions to make them look inappropriate (because failing to notify you would have been very inappropriate). ɠǀɳ̩ςεΝɡbomb 00:40, 13 February 2010 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:Decibel.Embers.Cover.JPG)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:Decibel.Embers.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.

Hey! I just stumbled upon the AfD for Embers and happened to look at your user page. How funny that you popped back on just a few weeks ago to say that you might be coming back to Wikipedia to contribute. Just wanted to say that I hope you do so. You did a great, great job of finding sources for Embers and Lesser of Two, and I remember those two AfD discussions being surprisingly cordial given how lengthy they became. Just my two cents.
