HMS Ariadne

No problem at all. I tend to edit quite heavily on Royal Navy ships, I'm working my way through the light cruiser classes at the moment, but once yours popped up in the new articles feed I thought I'd give it a bit of an overhaul. If you like the subject, Wikiproject:Ships is a good place to go for resources, templates, etc, as well as to chat about things, ask for advice, etc. But anyway, happy to help out. Kind regards, Benea 11:25, 25 October 2007 (UTC)

Hello

I'm the editor of Amir Khan (boxer)'s page and would like to say that your contribution was identified as vandalism. Hope you understand. Lil'Khan 05:36, 27 October 2007 (UTC) (Editor of the page) Ok!You wrote that he is from some Hassan...Clan when he is not he is a Janjua Rajput sorry for calling you a vandal.Lil'Khan 18:00, 27 October 2007 (UTC) Sorry! —Preceding unsigned comment added by Lil'Khan (talkcontribs) 18:10, 27 October 2007 (UTC)

Jessica Moon

Clarifying .... I was restoring the db-bio tag and adding holdon as Lil'Khan had removed the db-bio tag ... i.e. a procedural step. I edit conflicted with you and finished the edit with my edit. --User:Ceyockey (talk to me) 18:47, 27 October 2007 (UTC)

(following from your response) I think the best course right now is to keep aware of Lil'Khan's activities and assiduously document them on the User's talk page so as to support any needed action later. I'm hoping that the Lil'Khan is just having a bad day and will be on a better path tomorrow (or next editing session). --User:Ceyockey (talk to me) 18:56, 27 October 2007 (UTC)

List of James Bond novels

Hastings

Thanks for the note. Regarding whether or not an article specifically focused on Hastings Town Centre is appropriate, I don't disbelieve what you've said. I removed the tag, though, since it was not a clear violation of any of the criteria for speedy deletion. Additionally, while I'm unfamiliar with Hastings itself, I've lived in areas where articles on the town centre (or plaza, town square, or the equivalent) would be appropriate and meet notability requirements.

In any case, if you'd care to pursue the matter, I would suggest starting an AfD on the article. I think you have good reasons to do so, but speedy deletions are reserved for cases where there is little to no question of the appropriateness of an article. Tijuana Brass 21:00, 1 November 2007 (UTC)

Hassocks Golf Club

The article was deleted because it appeared to be an advertisement. Articles that contain little else but a listing of prices and the company's website are often deleted as such. If you want to recreate the article, using citations from reliable sources that attest to the golf club's notability, you are more than welcome to do so. -- Merope 16:19, 7 November 2007 (UTC)

Theatr felinfach

Arguably a bit borderline; there was so little context I couldn't even be sure the article was genuine.

Would you like me to undelete to userspace so it can be worked on a bit more? I would recommend fixing the name of the final article, though (capitalizing). — Coren (talk) 16:22, 18 November 2007 (UTC)


A tag has been placed on Theatr Felin-fach requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article appears to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content, 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 assert the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's 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 confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. UtherSRG (talk) 16:54, 18 November 2007 (UTC)

Robert Lambton

There's a difference between an assertion of notability and Wikipedia subject notability. Speedy deletion (CSD A7) can only be used when an assertion of notability for the subject has not been made. In this case, an assertion has been made (Lambton won the U14 National Youth Omnium). Therefore, I had to decline the speedy deletion request. However, I felt the article was not in itself notable according to Wikipedia guidelines, so I sent the article to AfD to see if others agree that the subject does not meet WP:BIO. Nishkid64 (talk) 18:45, 24 November 2007 (UTC)

I've tagged it. You have four days to build up Robert Lambton. Bearian'sBooties (talk) 01:49, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

New Forest

I am wondering why you removed the Hampshire templates from New Forest and substituted Wiltshire ones? I believe the forest was once in Dorset but it is now almost entirely in Hampshire.--Charles (talk) 17:05, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

Apologies. On closer inspection it was Suicidalhampster who put on the Wilts tags. I have left it as Hants.--Charles (talk) 22:24, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

Why re-edit...

Sorry I re-editted the changes you made. This is my first ever attempt at a Wiki page and at that point I had not read the instruction to put dates within square brackets. I wasn't sure where they had come from and thought they were simply wrong.

Also because I am a newbie, I'm not sure if this is the right way to reply to the message you sent me. So apologies if I'm fumbling around here! —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ronnie turford (talkcontribs) 13:48, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the kind reply Ronnie Turford (talk) 12:32, 20 December 2007 (UTC)

re James Baird

Thanks for your comment at my talkpage. In answer, yes. It is badly written, possibly by the subject - which gives a conflict of interest - but it does establish notability. The subject has been employed by a (couple of) professional football club(s). WP:CSD is not suitable for a subject that establishes notability. LessHeard vanU (talk) 12:36, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

I declined the 2nd speedy deletion on this as it is not nonsense-- just badly written. Bad writing is fixable by good writing rather than deletion. Also, It took like 50 seconds for me to come up with verifiable sources asserting that subject is a pro footballer. You might want to nominate this at AfD, but it is not a candidate for speedy deletion. Dlohcierekim 14:58, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

Reply

The handy-dandy link to Wikipedia:Non-free content criteria that I provided in the edit summary should fill you in on what you need to know about non-free content. Using that image in the infobox specifically fails point 1 of the criteria. It also fails point 12 of Wikipedia:Non-free content#Unacceptable images in that it is a replaceable fair-use image of a living person. Images in infoboxes are always used for identification purposes (i.e. "This is what the subject of this article looks like"). Fair-use images that are used to, as you say, show "subject playing her most well known character" are absolutely allowed, provided that they are located in the body of the article and support significant text regarding the image. That means you need more than "She is known for playing Janet Keogh (née Smith) in the BBC sitcom Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps. In Two Pints, Janet is the girlfriend and eventual wife of Jonny Keogh, played by Ralf Little." for the image to pass the criteria. Other, better articles have been dragged backwards kicking and screaming through a bed of thorns over the use of non-free images despite meeting all of the criteria. There is therefore no reason why Image:Sheridan Smith.jpg should appear in such a small undeveloped article. Besides, the image does not show her "playing" her most well-known character; it shows Smith in costume looking at the camera. When inserting non-free images like that into an article, screenshots are best because they actually show the actor playing the character. Brad (talk) 10:31, 31 December 2007 (UTC)

Mary Tanner

Fine maybe this article is not a hoax but I still see no evidence that she is 'Dame Commander of the British Empire'. Could you please provide a source for this, thank you. Harland1 (t/c) 19:18, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

Prižba

Hello, Paste. I've seen your changes on the article Prižba.
That village is located on the southern coast, and it follows the coastline, it goes along it. Do you get it?
Second change: article is about that village, not about that island, so we're speaking about main economic activity of the village.
Thanks for help on the article. Kamarad Walter (talk) 13:15, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

Do you find geographical description confusing? I'll fix it, just say it. Bye, Kamarad Walter (talk) 17:53, 5 January 2008 (UTC)

Regarding Thomas Oldham Barlow

You have a heading at the top of the page which says to "assume good faith." You might take your own advice. Believe it or not, I've been known to make mistakes. It's not assuming good faith, however, if you come to my talk page and say it's "unbelievable" that anyone could take such an action. Next time you want to dispute someone's action, you might want to try a more polite method to letting them know they made a mistake. -- Redfarmer (talk) 19:50, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

You've completed the request for deletion review correctly.

Hello,

You say "Norfolk Punt - I've Wikified the article for you but it will get deleted soon if you don't amend it as I see that it's a copyright infringement of the website that you reference".

Speedy deletion of Griffin Inn

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Griffin Inn 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 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 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 (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. ukexpat (talk) 18:14, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

Re your message on my talk page, an admin has declined speedy deletion so the article stays. As regards moving the article, as I understand WP guideline, definite and indefinite article are noy used in the names of articles.  – ukexpat (talk) 20:42, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

Hi, I'm largely responsible for having written the majority of the article for Dorothy Stringer, and you're large responsible for having removed the endless vandalsim.

Another editor has added the {{prod}} template to the article Learning to Learn (lesson), 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.

Thanks anyway, there are only a small number of contributors covering UK horse racing, and anything is welcome on the subject - I see you also started one on Richard Pitman, which is good. --Bcp67 (talk) 08:40, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

Chronology of Human Prehistory

Thank you for your positive and useful contribution to this page. Bless you. Das Baz, aka Erudil 16:00, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

With respect, I'm not happy with them. A couple are well out of date and not from people with the relevant expertise anyway, and this is a field where new discoveries are made if not every day certainly several times a year. One was a foreign language book taken from another article, and neither of us knows if it was correct I think. The Toba volcano entry is basically speculation on a very contentious topic, and I'm not convinced a list is a good place for contentious topics. I'm still not convinced about this article, and certainly not about anyone creating lists like this with no references.Doug Weller (talk) 14:47, 17 April 2008 (UTC)
    • With respect you are onto the wrong author, my contribution to this article is limited to correcting a spelling mistake and showing by an internal link that the article in terms of the volcanic eruption is purely a theory.Paste (talk) 15:51, 17 April 2008 (UTC)

Help! A Secret History of the IRA

Dear Paste, your help here (if you're willing) will be welcome. The article A Secret History of the IRA was created yesterday. You helped create a better link for the reference to reviews of the book, which was written by Ed Moloney. An editor, One Night In Hackney, will not leave the article alone. In his latest entry he attacks a source, The Blanket, an on-line journal. This reflects his POV. I have tried to keep in the article the important information that author Moloney employs primary sources in The Secret History of the IRA. One Night in Hackney keeps deleting this. As he knows Wikipedia better than I, and evidently has anything I edit marked, he's undermining ANYTHING I do. I've appealed to WP:ANI, but am new at such things and may not have done it correctly. Thank you.--WilliamHanrahan (talk) 01:13, 15 April 2008 (UTC)

Oldland Mill

Well, the article stated that the mill was in Ditchling (also refering to it as "Ditchling Mill") and didn't mention Keymar at all, so the article title didn't make any sense. Perhaps this information was incorrect? Keymer and Ditchling are in different counties, so the windmill's location needs to be correct. Small-town hero (talk) 21:38, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

Ray Mears

Yeh the point was I took it off like 2 minutes after i wrote it. having read some of the other feedback you get on here it would appear you make quite a habit of pointing out misfortunes of others which is fair enough because wiki does need to be somewhat 'policed' due to it's vulnerability to misinformation being displayed. however, the most important thing is that the display page doesnt contain wrong info. i fully understand this and as such put the page back to the way it was. however, you then furthered it by clearly looking at the history of the 'Ray Mears' page and despite the fact the information was no longer 'live' so to speak decided to send out a warning. My only theory is, that you feel big about doing this because firstly history is history, and secondly I clearly wasn't intending to vandalise because I took my content off within a few minutes. Anyway lighten up, I was only playing a joke on a Ray Mears fanatic. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Gunsnroses15 (talkcontribs) 02:11, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

Oxford Wikimania 2010 and Wikimedia UK v2.0 Notice

Hi,

As a regularly contributing UK Wikipedian, we were wondering if you wanted to contribute to the Oxford bid to host the 2010 Wikimania conference. Please see here for details of how to get involved, we need all the help we can get if we are to put in a compelling bid.

We are also in the process of forming a new UK Wikimedia chapter to replace the soon to be folded old one. If you are interested in helping shape our plans, showing your support or becoming a future member or board member, please head over to the Wikimedia UK v2.0 page and let us know. We plan on holding an election in the next month to find the initial board, who will oversee the process of founding the company and accepting membership applications. They will then call an AGM to formally elect a new board who after obtaining charitable status will start the fund raising, promotion and active support for the UK Wikimedian community for which the chapter is being founded.

You may also wish to attend the next London meet-up at which both of these issues will be discussed. If you can't attend this meetup, you may want to watch Wikipedia:Meetup, for updates on future meets.

We look forward to hearing from you soon, and we send our apologies for this automated intrusion onto your talk page!

Bart Tanski Article

I was wondering why the Bart Tanski article was made a speedy deletion. The wikipedia rule states "An article about a real person...that does not indicate why its subject is important or significant. This is distinct from questions of verifiability and reliability of sources, and is a lower standard than notability; to avoid speedy deletion an article does not have to prove that its subject is notable, just give a reasonable indication of why it might be notable". I stated that the Ohio Mr. Football award was the reason for importance/significance (a major award in Ohio, won by a number of notable players, etc.). That should be enough to provide for "a reasonable indication of why it might be notable". I can understand that one might believe this article should be subjected to deletion, but it seems incorrect for the article to have a speedy deletion. Can you please provide further reason why this article needs a speedy deletion or resurrect the article and make it a candidate for deletion discussion? If you need sources for the award, they can be easily found (and the Mr. Ohio Football award has its own wikipedia page, which lists Tanski). This did not seem like an article that needed speedy deletion as opposed to an open discussion of deletion.RonSigPi (talk) 03:12, 8 September 2008 (UTC)

PROD notice at Barlestone Primary School

Hi, while I agree that the article on the above primary school probably should be deleted, it was not good procedure to re-add the PROD notice after the creating user had removed it. By right anyone can remove a PROD without further discussion, and the next stage then would have been to take it to afd. I notice that you have now done this, and it's all water under the bridge now. But just so you know for future reference. -- roleplayer 18:19, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Barlestone Primary School

Hi Paste, I saw that you decided to agree with a merge in this AfD, but your initial nomination isn't optimal. Wikipedia:Arguments to avoid in deletion debates has more details, but basically, calling something non-notable without providing further reasoning makes other commenters keep guessing. For example, it's a good idea to mention a lack of sources if there is one or cite one or more criteria from WP:BEEFSTEW (admittedly, that is an old page, but I found it surprisingly accurate in determining what deserves a separate page). Saying just NN might even look like you're trying to push an agenda and that could open a whole can of uncivil worms.

Anyway, I babbled enough. I hope I've convinced you to be a bit more wordy (and explanative) in your nominations. - Mgm|(talk) 20:48, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Denise Fleming

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Denise Fleming, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because, even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

re Lionel Dorling

I, too, have no particular desire to engage in an edit war and I also possess a significant knowledge on the British honours system. However, I assure you many such combinations of awards were granted to military personnel who had distinguished themselves, particularly during the First World War. Aside from his awards, Dorling does not appear to be highly notable and, as I stated on the talk page, appears to have been written as a tribute from a relative. I would also find it as a surprise if any other article linked to this one. Cheers, Abraham, B.S. (talk) 10:29, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

It's not that I feel strongly about it, it's just that I do not think Dorling is notable enough to warrant an article on Wikipedia. I'll leave the notability tag up for a while longer and see if anyone is able to establish if he is notable enough for Wikipedia, if not, I will consider deletion. Cheers, Abraham, B.S.

Dr Robert Frew

Sir,

I am in the process of creating this wiki entry and building my writing career, and third-party links.

First of all, I object to the term 'non-notable accountant' since I have not practiced for some years.

Secondly, my PhD was supervised by Anthony Everitt, Secretary-General of the Arts Council of Great Britain (1990-94), and by Dr Eric Moody of the London Group http://www.thelondongroup.com/artists/moody.html. (The Dept. of Cultural Policy and Management, City University, has a Research Rating 5 - the highest in the UK)

Thirdly, I am a current authority on arts/cultural policy, and my dialogue with Conservative Shadow's Culture Secretary and Arts Secretary regarding the Arts Council England (My policy document still WPI), was partly a reason for my nomination for Conservative Party candidacy for mayor of London.

Forthly, it is worth mentioning: that of course there were a number of people who sought nomination that might not fit your 'notable' criteria, yet attended and took part in the policy issue debates - unlike many of the 'notables' that did not bother. So from a democratic standpoint I believe it is worth including in the Wiki some of the less notable people who got involved with the Conservative Party mayoral nomination process and who cared for London.Codablu (talk) 12:38, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

Hi, I'm just going by the guidelines used by the Football project.

Very Sorry

I could not be more sorry for this comment. I have damaged your reputation. I only made the comment because I looked at your edit count, which does not include deleted edits. Because you did not mention that you included your deleted edits, I assumed that you were not including them. Therefore, I accused you of lying. I cannot say how sorry I am.

Your RFA

I have closed your RFA as unsuccessful. The community has decided that you need more experience before you can be entrusted. RFA is one of the more grueling ventures here, so don't take it hard on yourself. You have plenty to learn and improve on; I suggest you do a thorough reading of the oppose section to improve on your past mistakes. The man who does well is good, but the one able to learn and adapt is better. Cheers, bibliomaniac15 05:46, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

Sorry about your RfA, it turned ugly. I do think you need to pay more attention to your CSD nominations and possibly review the guidelines, but I didn't intend for it to be that ugly.---Balloonman PoppaBalloon 05:52, 4 December 2008 (UTC)
  • Thank you to both of you for your comments, I'd rather learn from the comments in the RFA and move on. What I would like is to, as Balloonman says, pay more attention to my CSD nominations and look at more communication with other editors and then come back for another try in a couple of months. I'd also be interested in being mentored by any experienced admin willing to do so. I really don't think that I'm quite the slap happy, careless individual that I seem to have been portrayed as. :-)Paste Talk 07:15, 4 December 2008 (UTC)
Sounds like a plan. My suggestion would be to find an admin whom you respect in the CSD arena and ask them for help/guidance. I know that there are several good admins that work in the CSD space. Of all the areas at Wikipedia, CSD is one of the areas that *I* strongly believe needs to be near perfect---especially when promoting a potential admin to work in. Again, my suggestion would be to talk to some of the admins that you've encountered while working in that area and ask them to monitor you/help you. That way, when you do come back for RfA, you will have an admin familiar with your work to provide a nom---and that always helps ;-) ---Balloonman PoppaBalloon 14:55, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

Hi Paste, sorry that went the way it did. I do understand how you may well feel - check out Wikipedia:Requests for adminship/WereSpielChequers to see what 21 opposes looks like! But the nice side of this place is that you can go back to the things you enjoy on Wikipedia and no one will mention your RFA, partly because only a tiny proportion of editors will be aware of it. You might also want to watchlist wp:AIV, that way you can see whether things you nom for delete get deleted per your suggestion, and if they don't you know which admin to ask for feedback.

  • My apologies, I was using AWB so I'm not at all sure how that happened.Paste Talk 13:08, 5 December 2008 (UTC)
Paste, just a friendly point of advice, if you want to run again for admin, make sure that you make a decent number of non-automated edits. People who over rely on the tools often find it harder to pass because it masks the thought process of the user. You still have to think when you use tools, as this post highlights, but people at RfA want to see manual edits. Automated ones are almost entirely discounted. I say this because I do want to see you get to where you want to be. Your response to the negativity and the harshness of the RfA showed me that you have the temperament to be an admin, you just need to work on your technical side/accuracy.---Balloonman PoppaBalloon 14:27, 5 December 2008 (UTC)
  • Excellent point and I was so annoyed at this breaking of the article infobox as it was the last thing I wanted to happen. I was also even more annoyed at myself for not noticing it.

Hey there Paste, something else you might want to think about doing. This would help distinguish you from other CSD'ers. When you are doing CSD work, you might stumble accross articles that are simply bad articles that might be CSD candidates or AFD candidates--- but you might see some potential in the article. Heck, it might even interest you. If you could rescue those articles, even bringing them to just start class, it would go a long way towards showing that you are not the typical CSD'er/NPP'er. If you do that, start keeping track of them. Also, you might be interested in taking a look at my talk page... I've been doing some research into CSD lately... looking at how G1 and A1's have been closed. I've taken about 50 deleted articles and explored if they really met A1 and G1 criteria... many do not.---Balloonman PoppaBalloon 05:37, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

About Ub News

Hello Paste,

I received speedy deletion for Ub News Universal Broadcasting News).

I know Ub News is new company but that is providing good resources for global users. That has news section and press release for Internet news readers, article section for improving web resources and have link directory. So I think that at one place user will get more resource and information.

This is new online news resource so it has not used powerful web promotion for showing brand online newspaper.

I think reliability is because Ub News is very ethical and has good visitors within few days.


This site use content from online users and whatever they send then I think publisher and editors check and then publish for global users. So that Ub News always shows publishing resources.

Proposed deletion of Ten UK

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Ten UK, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

Dubious claims (unsourced) of notability; major COI

All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because, even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

Midhurst Rother College

Hello -I can see that you have created an article for the new academy in Midhurst. I had actually been drafting an article over the last couple of days which I intended to place at Midhurst Rother College as I believe that will be the official title of the school. You can see my work at User:Tafkam/MRV. As you have only just started a short article, I intend to go ahead and put my fuller version up (although had planned to do it New Years Day when the school officially comes into existence. Your edits are, of course, welcome. Tafkam (talk) 18:24, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

Estcots Primary School

  • Hi again. I see that you prodded the above as non notable primary. I've had a look at it and edited it somewhat. You have re categorised other primaries in W Sussex and not prodded them, do you feel that this school is any less notable than the others? Indeed should any primaries have articles or should they all be merged into their locations unless there is something truly notable/remarkable about them? Any thoughts? Best regards. Paste Talk 19:18, 30 December 2008 (UTC)
Hello again. My general feeling now (after some variations in the past!) is that new articles for primaries are not worth starting unless there is something truly notable. However, I'm not generally of the opinion that is worth going round and deleting old articles doing no harm - particularly if they are referenced in some way. In this particular case there is no referencing, even when some rather specific claims are made, e.g. in the lead claiming that the school is in "The top 5 'most successful' Schools in West Sussex". Later in the article there are errors in reference to the name of SATs as well as unsubstantiated claims about the quality of results - although I note that you have removed the data which would have quickly become out of date if it hasn't already. A list of clubs is certainly not encyclopaedic, and while Eco-Schools and School Councils themselves are of interest, they don't make this particular article worthy of note. While I realise that you've made some efforts to improve the article, it still doesn't lend very much information to the reader, but rather feels like an edited highlights of the website type affair. Perhaps in fairness I ought to have tagged some of the other schools I moved, but this one just seemed to stand out as a particularly bad case (and one which lends itself to being used by the "delete all school articles" brigade as a prime example!)

Micky Nutton / Mickey Nutton

Hello. I just read your query on my user page re Nutton. Having created the article I was double checking a fact on another site and found his name was spelled Mickey (with an "e") Nutton as well. References to him do alter between the two nicknames for Michael and given neither is his official given name I suppose either could be correct. A check on google does suggest that Micky rather than Mickey is the common term and so I think the redirect should go the other way. I will change this.Kwib (talk) 00:18, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

Hi Paste,

if you look at this link, [2] found on the website of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario which I found through google.

Also, if you type into googe "Dr. Anne Marie Drysdale" (Marie being the physicians middle name), the first three entries are directly related to her ophthalmologist practice in Oakville, Ontario.

does this help to make dr. drysdale more "notable" in your opinion?

Liverpool Tart editing

Hi Paste, thanks for your prompt intervention. This is my second attempt at my first article for Wikipedia on the Liverpool Tart, and i need all the help I can get, as Wikipedia is proving much more daunting than I had feared. Please do go ahead and make whatever edits you see fit.

There is a reference to an earlier attempt, which was removed by somebody without my noticing, I think because of a worry that the image I sent with it might be Copyrighted. So no images this time - pity - until I know what I am doing.

The other "dodgy image" referred to, is in connection with another of my projects, the Third LIver Bird, and the image is of the creator/designer, and nothing to do with Liverpol Tarts.

How do I contest this? I believe the article and therefore the company to be notable - we're Smeg's UK service agent providing service to the WHOLE of the UK - we're better known as Smeg Service for this reason. It's already listed on the Smeg (appliances) links. I was adding our article as an extension to this. Normally details of a company's services would be provided in their own article but as we're separate to Smeg I created a new page.

Is this deletion avoidable? I'm not very good at editing and took ages on this!

Mynameispritch (talk) 16:07, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

  • You can certainly contest it as per the SD notice which you will see indicates that if you wish to contest the SD then you can add 'hangon' to the article. However have you read Wikipedia:Notability (organizations and companies) as I still cannot see how this service company, however good, passes the notability threshold. Also it would seem that you have a direct connection with the company and so there is very likely a COI. Paste Let’s have a chat. 16:13, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Although I realise my proximity to the company creates an apparent COI I have done my best to remain objective and factual throughout the article. I have read the information on notability and believe that the problem lies with the fact that we tend to refer to ourselves as Smeg Service rather than Servevast. This is because we deal almost exclusively with Smeg in the UK as their service arm. I'll state my case on the talk page of the article and cross my fingers. Thanks for all your help with this Paste.

Speedy deletion

Hi and thanks for your comments regarding my posting for the page on Gene Carl Feldman. I had actually been requested to put something up on Wikipedia by a number of folks representing various educational organizations that I am going to be giving lectures to so figured that the easiest way to do that would be by excerpting text from my NASA bio (http://oceancolor.gsfc.nasa.gov/staff/gene/ ) , similar to what a colleague of mine, Robert Bindschadler ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Bindschadler ) has done.

And yes you're right, it does describe the CCF on the main page, but in extreme lack of detail. If you had been bothere you would have easily found out that I also made a link on the main page to the more detailed CCF page.

The Eastern Snake River Plain Aquifer

This article should not be merged into the Snake River article, rather it should be expounded on significantly. I am working on expanding the article now and there is already a substantial amount of information (outside Wikipedia) about the aquifer itself. Specifically from the USGS (http://pubs.usgs.gov/ha/ha730/ch_h/H-text8.html) and researchers at Idaho State University. While the Snake River Aquifer is significant source of water for the Snake River it is not necessarily a part of the river. It is also the sole source of drinking water for the majority of the people in South Eastern Idaho and a significant source of agricultural irrigation water. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Marcoaurelio83 (talkcontribs) 03:34, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

Your AfD closures

I see you've been closing a number of AfD's. Please remember that you need to let them run for 5 days before you close them. I've seen you close a number far too early. Here for example you closed one after just two days. Ryan PostlethwaiteSee the mess I've created or let's have banter 13:44, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

White Plains Honda

Hi, thanks for you message regarding this speedy deletion. I don't mind at all explaining my rationale, feel free to ask anytime. After a think about it I agree that the article does meet the G11 blatant advertising as well as the A1 criteria. When I can I try to be cautious in using G11 as I think it is overused sometimes (but would not have been in this case) and prefer to use other criteria where they fit. You were quite right to tag it with G11 and I would say keep doing so if you see articles like this one. Me not using it says more about me than anything else!

Hi! Thanks for your message. Your work on keeping the Hassocks and B Hill articles free of vandalism is appreciated; I have them on my watchlist but have failed to work on them for ages, despite my good intentions, because Brighton & Hove and Crawley-related stuff are my main areas of work at the moment.

Hi, when you pasted the Google translation of the article, you included Wiki markup and it caused an entire new section to be added to the articles-for-translation page!

St Cosmas and St Damian Church, Keymer

Excellent — thanks for starting this! I've got enough material to expand this quite nicely. You may know I'm very active at the Did You Know? section of the Main Page; once I've added as much as I can I'll submit a fact for consideration, which with a bit of luck will then appear on the Main Page and give the church some wider exposure for a little while. (The interesting fact is of course the rareness of the dedication: thankfully Nikolaus Pevsner confirms my longstanding belief that there are only two other churches in England with it, in his The Buildings of England: Sussex (1965). Would you be able to get a picture within the next few days? — I won't get a chance to wander along for a while (tomorrow will be taken up with church photography in Crawley!).

Rod Wilks page

I believe this is where I go to object for deletion. If it isn't, sorry. Concerning your issues with my article, it should be brought to your attention that Wilks is a notable figure. Arguably, he is the most notable of the the Tennessee Volunteers American football players, as the jokes mentioned in the page have brought him a lot of fame within the Tennessee Volunteer fanbase. Plus, a ton of Tennessee fans have asked for this article to be written, especially on the VolNation message boards that are mentioned in the page.

In short, Wilks, is a notable figure, and thus, does not need to have his page deleted.

Nickknx865 (talk) 08:09, 20 February 2009 (UTC)


Rod Wilks is a football player for the Tennessee Vols. He is actually on a college football team. Whereas, Matt Barkley, a High School student hasn't even played a down of football at USC yet he has a page that hasn't been deleted.

The Legend Page is part of his lore. You can't have a Rod Wilks page with out the Legend. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.72.98.104 (talk) 10:41, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Could you define third party references? I have added a few references already.

Also, book as "non notable" seems fairly strange to me. Self-published or published, this is a choice, and the book exists and is available for sale. Why should a destinction be made? Isn't that the point of Wikipedia, to document anything and everything that can be documented as factual or otherwise? And I certainly never said it said it wasn't "notable" in the article. It's "notable" to me and the people who have read it, better or worse.

If possible deletion pertains to references, etc., I am eager to fix it.

Tapsel gate

Thanks for your note. The articles come with an anecdote ... I went to a New Year's Eve party in Burgess Hill; we all had the wise idea (?) of overcoming our hangovers by walking from Clayton to Pyecombe on New Year's Day and having lunch in the Plough. I spent 10 minutes at the church taking pics, as I knew they would come in useful at some point...! All the sources I found were unsure about why the design wasn't adopted more widely: it's certainly a practical design (ands quite stylish), and it would be good to see it being reintroduced in a modern form.

Re:Bill Boddy

I must say that before I checked just now I didn't know that there was a Category:Auto racing people, which may be more suitable (if underpopulated). My addition of the category was mostly done on automatic, as I have routinely added it to people who are connected with F1, even if as you say their connection is with the wider world of motorsport in general. I was going to cite the example of Denis Jenkinson as a similar person who is already in Category:Formula One, but I checked tha article history and it was me who added the category back in 2006! So perhaps it would be better to recategorise these two articles?--Diniz(talk) 19:26, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

But the facts should be openly expressed and the people should know them.

I edited the page "An Introduction to Evolution" as such:


You deleted my edit saying that it constitutes Vandalism. Could you be kind enough to tell me how?

I was only trying to tell the public another fact about the Theory of Evolution. Another side of the picture so that they have a better understanding.


  • I deleted your insertion for exactly the same reason that your identical insertion was deleted from Evolution as theory and fact. You placed it at the very beginning of the article with no consideration as to whether this was an appropriate location for the information. Please add 4 ~ when posting on people's talk pages.

Proposed deletion of Joe Burnside (transplant patient)

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Joe Burnside (transplant patient), suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

Article about a person only notable for one event (WP:BLP1E)

All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because, even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. ←Signed:→Mr. E. Sánchez Get to know me! / Talk to me!←at≈:→ 16:55, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

  • Hi Paste. I've beeen looking for quite a while this evening, and, while I don't have any experience of deletion discussions, it seems to be (from what I can establish) a marginal case, probably falling on the "delete" side, unfortunately. (Or, I should say, "merge and redirect" to Heart transplantation.) I looked at some articles about other "ordinary people" with notable medical histories, such as Elizabeth Craze (world's youngest surviving heart transplant patient) and Louise Brown (first IVF baby, of course), and saw that they have been subject to heated discussions and even some edit-warring over whether they should exist separately or be merged with the relevant medical articles. (I was particularly surprised to see that Louise Brown is seen as independently non-notable by a number of different editors.) Because even these people, who—for want of a better term—effectively hold world records, struggle to keep articles of their own, I don't think Joe Burnside's will be kept: he was only the longest surviving in Britain, not the world; and the record is likely to be broken in the future, reducing the level of notability. Having said that, I think you are right to contest the PROD, as it would be worth seeing what the AfD process brings up. The article has reliable, non-trivial sourcing in its favour. I expect that if you remove the PROD now, somebody would come along and list it at AfD, at which point the debate can be opened wider. I will watch the article for now and see what happens, and will also try to put my thoughts forward at AfD if that is what transpires. Hassocks5489 (tickets please!) 20:29, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

Hi Paste, i think you put the notability and wikify messages at the top of my page, WebsEdge; please could you advise how i can adapt my article to get rid of these as I am having trouble trying to figure out how to make it more notable? thanks (Annabelkate22 (talk) 14:29, 2 March 2009 (UTC)) --Annabelkate22 (talk) 14:29, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for your response Paste,I have read various pages on how to improve a Wikipedia page but I'm struggling with the fact it says that WebsEdge has been orphaned and that it needs to be wikified as it has little or no internal links, as I tried to add as many as possible - am I misunderstanding something? as you can see i'm new to this! Thanks, (Annabelkate22 (talk) 11:52, 3 March 2009 (UTC))

Need info about the architect and lecturer Andres Harris

Hi,

I just found a topic about an architect called Andres Harris, who has investigated the behaviour of viscous materials. He's got a website (www.andres.harris.cl) where he explains his theory about viscous materials. I also added the fact that his thesis was inspited on Frei Otto's investigation. I need to find out more about Andres and need to contact him as I attended a lecture he did at the Architectural Association but never had the chance to contact him afterwards.

I saw you posted a discussion page about him and I'd like to know if you have more info. It will be highly appreciated. Many thanks

Re:2008 Bahrain Grand Prix

Apologies. It was one of the worst edit summaries I've ever left, and for that I'm sorry. I was in a hurry this morning when I logged on, and I went through the diff to see the changes you made. I agree now that a full revert was unwarranted, but I found your grammar a little clumsy (the "..., with ... ...ing" structure being an example), with a little redundancy ("with the result that") and some flow issues at the other extreme ("Kimi Räikkönen also in a Ferrari was second, and BMW Sauber driver Robert Kubica was third" in my opinion should have a couple more commas). I can assure you that by no means did I seek to diminish your edits, and that "Tidy" seems a little arrogant in retrospect. Apterygial 11:52, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

AfD of the first part of Oyster Bay History Walk

Hi, I have taken the article Fleet's Hall to AfD. I think some of the articles are worth keeping, some need merging as they are content forks and a few need deleting. I think it best to proceed slowly with this series as we don't want to turn off an enthusiastic contributor, so my thinking is to work through the series, one article at a time. What do you think?

P.S. I'm going to leave this message on RodHull's & Moonriddengirl's talk pages too. Beeswaxcandle (talk) 09:01, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

In light of my experience working with editors like yourself, I am beginning to seriously regret contributing in the first place. If I am constantly on the defense and substantial portions of work are being taken away, that takes away any incentive for me to want to contribute.

Hello Paste,

I feel that you are working to make me upset. I tried to make a post that would entice readers to make positive choices on the topic of evolution. I am not here to make a scene, but what you have told me is something very false. I did not make an unconstructive post by saying "-Proven by current day novels or books such as the BIBLE, evolution could not have ever happened. So what you will read is all theoretical and very easily disproven. Just sayin...cuz it's unverifiable." So please allow me to enscribe my name on the face of the glorious topic of creationism in which I highly believe and want to defend. Thanks. --Dukester928 (talk) 18:16, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

  • I think that the fact that you have now been blocked says it all really. --Paste Let’s have a chat. 21:53, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

Admin?

Hi, Paste!!! How are you? I'm doing pretty well! I am still rather happy about my good article! I was thinking that I wanted to request to be an admin. I have been spending a great deal of time read through policies, guidelines, essays and lots of history. As such I created this page. What do you think? Basket of Puppies 07:22, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

  • I'm good thanks and glad that you are enjoying contributing to Wikipedia. That's an impressive document that you have created and it will take me some time to read it properly. My suggestion for your next move would be to go for Wikipedia:Editor review.--Paste Let’s have a chat. 21:26, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

a little thank you

Hi Paste - just a thank you for tidying my new article on Ester Anderson. I've just started learning to wiki here and I'm planning to add a personal list of women artists and creatives who I think have been poorly represented on both Wiki and the web. I'd appreciate any feedback - Ester Anderson was only my second entry and she is a remarkable character who has been largely ignored in related articles. --Aimeelo (talk) 22:54, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

Photobooth

Hi Paste, I am intrigued by your photograph of old wet chemistry photobooth which you said is still working in the UK. I have been searching for one of these for some time and believed they had all been destroyed! Would you be able to let me know where this booth is and if it's still working? Your help would be greatly appreciated.Photomovette (talk) 12:11, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

  • I've changed the caption on that photo as it was misleading, I took that photo longer ago than I remembered (2001) - it was at a motorway service station as I recall but may well have been replaced by now. I'll keep my eye out for one though my suspicion is that they have all been replaced. Thanks for pointing out the error.--Paste Let’s have a chat. 13:54, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

Henri Temianka

Hello Paste, I'm newly registered on Wikipedia and have written a long-overdue article on my father, Henri Temianka, who was a famous classical violinist. I've been through the Tutorials and am still unclear as to how actually to post my article. I more or less understand the formatting techniques and footnoting process, but nowhere did I quite get how to upload or finalize the article. Also, I have several photographs that I would like to incorporate into the article, but don't understand how to do this. Would much appreciate your guidance, thanks! My username is dtemiankaHT. DtemiankaHT (talk) 23:51, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

Hello Paste, Thanks very much for your prompt & helpful comments re my entry on my father, Henri Temianka. As you may see, I've entered the article. I hope that it meets Wiki standards and welcome feedback from all concerned. I do note that the References list is probably not quite correctly formatted. I have a couple of photos of my father to upload, and am pursuing the Upload link you provided. Must confess the copyright rules are rather complicated, and as the photos are quite old -- 1986 and c. 1932, respectively -- it may prove difficult or impossible to obtain explicit permission; however, as the executor of my father's estate, I feel comfortable that I am acting in good faith. Any further advice you might have will be much appreciated. Thanks again! Yours, Dan T. DtemiankaHT (talk) 02:50, 26 May 2009 (UTC)

Hello again Paste, Regret to report that I am struggling unsuccessfully with your copyright process. Would appreciate some direction as per my previous message -- upload the photos to Commons? Fair Use license? Sorry, I don't get it! Thank you. DtemiankaHT (talk) 14:32, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

The joe mangle angle

Hi. We're not supposed to restore PRODs, even if no reason is given for removal - see WP:PROD#Conflicts. I think the reasoning is that PROD is supposed to be for absolutely uncontroversial deletions only. In this case, the author had actually gone to the trouble of setting up a website on a free hosting service and providing a link to it - which is no good as a reliable source, of course, though he gets marks for effort! I've taken the article to AfD here. Regards, JohnCD (talk) 11:19, 26 May 2009 (UTC)

  • I think the author was being quite cunning - he waited till the PROD had only hours to run, so his "angle" will have had a full 14 days' exposure before it goes. Regards, JohnCD (talk) 12:55, 26 May 2009 (UTC)

NOSA

Hi Paste,

I know of NOSA because I used to use it all the time in our library.

I know they are notable, especially there Simorgh product, as it is perhaps the main library management software in Iran.

there program is used by more many big organization including some of the biggest universities in the country (which is how I came to know them originally)

the list in there website include many big organizations including

Sharif University (Central Library)
Tehran University (Faculty of Science)
Tehran University (Faculity of Foriegn Languages)
Tehran University (Institute of Geophysics)
Tehran University (Institute of Biochemistry Biophysics)
Amirkabir University of Technology (Central Library)
Shahid Beheshti University (Central Library)
Iran University of Science and Technology (Central Library)
Islamic Azad University (Tehran Medical Unit)
Mofid University (Central Library)
Iran University of Science and Technology (Arak Branch)

This information is very useful because due to there extensive online network, any person could search for documents in any of the user clients which include a list of hundreds of universities, public departments and corporations. I left the portal as a link, it can be used to search for English and Persian documents in the public sectors of the search engine.

the program further offers the ability to barrow the documents of view a digitized version is made available by the source. this is a great tool for researchers.


The company is not only in the forefront of the sector in Iran, it is also working in bringing RFID library technology to the country. there latest software was very notable as it was covered by national news including the Iranian News channel [11], Iranian Technology news [12] and Iranian student news agency [13]

the reason I have not made the page more detailed is because of my unfamiliarity with the software, technology and troubles translating their technical details from Persian to English.

I am hoping that by staring the page I can get the assistance of others familiar with the Company to assist me in it's improvment.

Nosa is also one of the companies which will be located in Pardis Technology Park, the silicon Vally of Iran.

I will try to improve on the article, I am trying to get the corporation's permission before doing so. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Rmzadeh (talkcontribs) 23:46, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

Hi

Hello Paste, How long does it take for a new Wikipedia article to be recognized by Google? Or is there something I need to do to establish that link? Thanks! DtemiankaHT (talk) 19:12, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

  • As far as I can see it seems to be coming up on page two of a google search. Paste Let’s have a chat. 07:39, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
