The Arts Tasmania and Tasmanian Arts Advisory Board (TAAB) articles are unsatisfactory in several ways. Most critically, all or almost all of the text is copied from various web pages of the group, and , it seems, other previously published publicity material. It is not permitted to do this; even if is is you own the copyright and are willing to give us permission according to WP:DCM, the tone will not be encyclopedic and the material will not be suitable. I attempted to rewrite it, but gave up: too much of the material was unsalvageable. Following my responsibilities as an administrator here to remove copyvio, I had no practical choice but to delete the entire article.

As a general rule, a suitable page will be best written by someone without Conflict of Interest; it's not impossible to do it properly with a conflict of interest or as a paid press agent, but it's relatively more difficult: you are automatically thinking in terms of what the subject wishes to communicate to the public, but an uninvolved person will think in terms of what the public might wish to know.

Wikipedia articles should include only material that would be of interest to a general reader coming across the mention of the subject and wanting the sort of information that would be found in an encyclopedia. Do not include material that would be of interest only to those associated with the subject, such as the organizational details and detailed administrative history. There's a good place or that, which is your own web site, not a general encyclopedia . Do not include bios of the directors. List them, and link to the articles on Wikipedia if they are notable enough to have them. Keep in mind that the goal of an encyclopedia is to say things in a concise manner, which is not the style of press releases or web sites, which are usually more expansive.

If you think you can do it right according to our guidelines, rewrite the articles, but expect the article to be carefully checked for suitability.

If you want to use material from the website, follow the full formalities is WP:DVM, and place each part it in quotation marks with the specific source. But I would seriously advise you not to go to the trouble: it will be easier to rewrite. DGG ( talk ) 19:41, 26 November 2011 (UTC)

I've made a new page for you to use as a draft User:Ovann86/Arts Tasmania. Remember to be careful about copyright and Close paraphrase When you're ready, ask me or some other admin to look at it. DGG ( talk ) 17:57, 8 March 2012 (UTC)

About Tasmanian Arts Advisory Board (TAAB)[edit]

Hi again, Ovann86.
The article still appears be a straight copy-and-paste from the TAAB's website. And Facebook is generally not a reliable reference. I was once a small fish in the small pond of the Tasmanian Arts community, and would be more happy to help you out with this, (and anything else relating to anything at all. Face-smile.svg
