Speedy deletion of Patricia Bubash[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Patricia Bubash 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 or group of people, 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 biographies.

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 they userfy the article or have a copy emailed to you.

I've noted the "hangon" tag you applied to the above-captioned article. You may not be aware that self-publishing doesn't confer any notability according to our guidelines, and I can see no other evidence that the subject of this article has sufficient notability, especially since there are no reliable sources or any assertions on the talk page that would enable us to make a different decision. I've therefore decided to agree with the editor who tagged the article for speedy deletion. If you have any questions that aren't answered by WP:Why was my article deleted?, feel free to leave me a note. Accounting4Taste:talk 21:47, 9 February 2009 (UTC)[edit]

Hi. Thanks for your message at User talk: of my links on the Ferris Wheel site and other. Your Wordpress website '' is self-published (note that WP:SELFPUBLISH states "self-published media ... are largely not acceptable as sources. Self-published expert sources may be considered reliable when produced by an established expert on the subject matter, whose work in the relevant field has previously been published by reliable third-party publications. Exercise caution when using such sources: if the information in question is really worth reporting, someone else will probably have done so." - see also footnote #9) and the links you inserted to it as references are citation spam. If you think not, you could request a second opinion at Wikipedia:Reliable sources/Noticeboard. If you wish to discuss further, please reply here. Thanks. (talk) 21:25, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
