The survey takes only 6 minutes, and the information you provide will not be shared with third parties other than to assist us in analyzing the results of the survey; the WMF will not use the information to identify you.

  • If this invitation  also appears on other accounts you  may  have, please complete the  survey  once only. 
  • If this has been sent to you in error and you have never patrolled new pages, please ignore it.

Please click HERE to take part.
Many thanks in advance for providing this essential feedback.


You are receiving this invitation because you  have patrolled new pages. For more information, please see NPP Survey. Global message delivery 12:44, 26 October 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Shaffer (baseball)[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Shaffer (baseball) 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.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, 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. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Gaijin42 (talk) 21:02, 26 October 2011 (UTC)

Removing Speedy at Shaffer (baseball)[edit]

Hi Penale52, you recently removed a deletion tag from Shaffer (baseball). Because Wikipedia policy does not allow the creator of the page to remove speedy deletion tags, an automated program has replaced the tag. Although the deletion proposal may be incorrect, removing the tag is not the correct way for you to contest the deletion, even if you are more experienced than the nominator. Instead, please use the talk page to explain why the page should not be deleted. Remember to be patient, there is no harm in waiting for another experienced user to review the deletion and judge what the right course of action is. As you are involved, and therefore potentially biased, you should refrain from doing this yourself. Thank you, - SDPatrolBot (talk) 21:09, 26 October 2011 (UTC)

baseball players[edit]

Baseball players who played in only one game are not notable. They are so not notable you dont even have a first name for them. Gaijin42 (talk) 21:13, 26 October 2011 (UTC)

That is no true. It has been discussed many times that playing in at least one Major League Baseball game pass WP:BASE/N. This is shown in Part 3 of the baseball notability guidelines which I'm sure you did not read: Have appeared in at least one game in any of the following defunct leagues: All-American Girls Professional Baseball League, American Association, Cuban League, Federal League, Japanese Baseball League, National Association of Professional Base Ball Players, Negro Major Leagues, Players' League, Union Association. Both Shafer and Edwards played in one game for the Brooklyn Eckfords of the National Association of Professional Base Ball Players in 1875. Adam Penale (talk) 21:26, 26 October 2011 (UTC)

Deletion discussion about Jeff Shaver[edit]

Hello, Penale52, and thanks for contributing to Wikipedia!

I wanted to let you know that some editors are discussing at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Jeff Shaver whether the article Jeff Shaver should be in Wikipedia. I encourage you to comment there if you think the article should be kept in the encyclopedia.

The deletion discussion doesn't mean you did something wrong. In fact, other editors may have useful suggestions on how you can continue editing and improving Jeff Shaver, which I encourage you to do. If you have any questions, feel free to ask at the Help Desk.

Thanks again for your contributions! Pilif12p 05:52, 12 November 2011 (UTC)

A belated welcome![edit]

Sorry for the belated welcome, but the cookies are still warm! Face-smile.svg

Here's wishing you a belated welcome to Wikipedia, Penale52. I see that you've already been around a while and wanted to thank you for your contributions. Though you seem to have been successful in finding your way around, you may benefit from following some of the links below, which help editors get the most out of Wikipedia:

Also, when you post on talk pages you should sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); that should automatically produce your username and the date after your post.

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! If you have any questions, feel free to leave me a message on my talk page, consult Wikipedia:Questions, or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and ask your question there.

Again, welcome! Carl Sixsmith (talk) 18:29, 12 November 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Art Williams (umpire)[edit]

Hello, Penale52, and thanks for your contributions to Wikipedia!

I wanted to let you know that I’m proposing an article that you worked on, Art Williams (umpire), for deletion because I don't think it meets our criteria for inclusion. If you don't want the article deleted:

  1. edit the page
  2. remove the text that looks like this: {{proposed deletion/dated...}}
  3. save the page

It helps to explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page. If you have any questions, feel free to ask on the Help Desk. Thanks again for contributing! —Bagumba (talk) 23:44, 14 November 2011 (UTC)

My bad, I misread the entry for minor league umps at WP:BASE/N.—Bagumba (talk) 00:17, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

Hey[edit]

I just want to thank you for the amazing job you've done on tracking down all those photos of 19th-century baseball players. DS (talk) 13:53, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

Thanks alot. Adam Penale (talk) 14:19, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

Doc Adams image[edit]

Hi Penale. I noticed that you added an image of Doc Adams in this edit. While it's a good-quality image, the licensing is a bit shaky, which I know since I investigated File:New_York_Knickerbockers_Baseball_Club,_circa_1847.jpg, the image that it's based off of. The problem is that it was certainly created before 1923, but I haven't been able to find proof that it was published in a book/magazine/newspaper before that date, which is necessary for public domain status. For now, I took the image out since it wouldn't stand up to close scrutiny at the major content review processes. Would you happen to know of an old (pre-1923) publication where the main photo appeared? I'd love to see it be proven PD, and would be the first one to put the new image back in the infobox if that happened. Giants2008 (Talk) 18:21, 29 January 2012 (UTC)

No, I don't know of any old publications that it appears in. I have no problem with you removing the image. I would like to applaud you on the work you've done to this page. I always wondered why Adams never had an article, until you made it. Adam Penale (talk) 19:21, 29 January 2012 (UTC)
Thank you for your praise and understanding. I asked about the photo at the baseball WikiProject; hopefully someone there can provide the needed information. Giants2008 (Talk) 22:44, 29 January 2012 (UTC)

Lou Lombardo[edit]

Hi. I put on note on the Lou Lombardo talk page about renaming that article, since there's another Lou Lombardo who'll have an article shortly. Probably best if you respond there. If you don't object to the change, I'll handle it when I post the new article about the film editor. Cheers, Easchiff (talk) 17:11, 31 January 2012 (UTC)

Pedro Dibut nominated for "Did you know...?[edit]

I've expanded the article, Pedro Dibut, which you created a few days ago, and have nominated for "Did you know...?" for Wikipedia's front page. The nomination appears at Template:Did you know nominations/Pedro Dibut. BRMo (talk) 05:33, 10 February 2012 (UTC)

Nomination of Frank Penale for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Frank Penale is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Frank Penale until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on good quality evidence, and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion template from the top of the article. --RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 20:54, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

AfD and PROD notifications[edit]

Hey Penale. Back in November, you got either an AfD or PROD notification, and it was during one of the template testing project's experiments. If you could go here and leave us some feedback about what you think about the new versions of the templates we tested (there are links to the templates), that would be very useful. (You can also email me at swalling@wikimedia.org if you want.) Thanks! Steven Walling (WMF) • talk 19:01, 17 February 2012 (UTC)

Hello, Penale52! I started a discussion at Template talk:Negro League teams#Major/minor league & scope of template regarding the above. Dropping a note here as a courtesy, there is no rush. Rgrds, (Dynamic IP, will change when I log off.) --64.85.220.22 (talk) 22:58, 18 April 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Josiah Henson (wrestler)[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Josiah Henson (wrestler) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a clear copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. WWGB (talk) 14:41, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Kyler Newby[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Kyler Newby has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Non-notable. Not worth merging to any other page.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist.

Non-free rationale for File:Veljko Čubrilović.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Veljko Čubrilović.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 01:25, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:TallahasseeThunder4.png[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:TallahasseeThunder4.png. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 14:34, 10 March 2014 (UTC)
