Independent Production[edit]

Nuvola apps important yellow.svg

Another editor has added the "{{prod}}" template to the article Independent Production, 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.

Hi, It looks like you've been bold! but I think we might need to rearrange things a little. In particular, Indie is a disambiguation page, which means there are some additional policies about what you can and can't include there. I think the template will need to be kept to article pages, and I'm going to remove the link from the template to Indie too. Indie (culture) might be a good place for some of your ideas. Remember that additions need to be sourced and verifiable. Feel free to leave message on my talk page. --AndrewHowse (talk) 17:00, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

Hi Ogat, I found your message! It's more common to use talk pages (like this one) for messages. Most people have (talk) or something similar in their signatures - click on that. The issue that's been raised with your contributions is that you haven't cited any sources, so some people have assumed that this is your own research. No-one's saying it's not true, but encyclopedias are based on other verifiable and reputable sources, and there are strong rules here about that. See the links to verifiable and reputable sources in the Welcome message at the top of this page. A good solution would be to find a link to an article about Indie culture in, say, the NY Times, or Wired magazine, or some other mainstream source. Good luck! --AndrewHowse (talk) 16:09, 6 February 2008 (UTC)

An RfC that you may be interested in...[edit]

As one of the previous contributors to {{Infobox film}} or as one of the commenters on it's talk page, I would like to inform you that there has been a RfC started on the talk page as to implementation of previously deprecated parameters. Your comments and thoughts on the matter would be welcomed. Happy editing!
