Hello, Punkock, and welcome to Wikipedia. I've noticed that you've altered my user page twice now with disparaging comments, presumably in response to the fact that I recently deleted the article HotrodboB, which you created. There were several reasons that I deleted this article. First, the article did not make any claim that the band was significant in any way. Please read the notability guidelines for bands for information about what kinds of things can make a band notable. Second, the article did not include any third-party sources for the information it contained; Wikipedia requires that all facts be verifiable. (A lack of sources is not a criterion for speedy deletion, but a lack of an assertion of significance is; see CSD A7.)

If you believe that it was inappropriate for me to delete the article HotrodboB, you are welcome to bring the issue to a discussion at Wikipedia:Deletion review. However, editing my user page (or that of any other user) to add disparaging remarks is not productive and will not help anything, and if you continue doing this you may be banned from editing Wikipedia. Please let me know if you have questions or need any help. —Bkell (talk) 21:44, 20 January 2008 (UTC)

Hey, I got mad that you deleted my band page. It took me quite awhile to write it, like 2-3 hours and alot of work was suddenly gone. I know we may not be known well in the US but, in Oklahoma people know who we are. Anyway, yeah I will leave your page alone. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Punkock (talkcontribs) 17:04, 3 February 2008 (UTC)
If your band meets the notability guidelines, and you can provide citations to reliable sources so that the information is verifiable, then you're welcome to rewrite the HotrodboB article. If you think you can meet these requirements, I can undelete the page so that you don't have to start over. Let me know if I can help. —Bkell (talk) 17:39, 3 February 2008 (UTC)
If you would like to continue this conversation, let's keep it on this page so that it's all in one place. Just edit this page to add whatever you want to say. I'll keep an eye on this page so I can respond. —Bkell (talk) 17:44, 3 February 2008 (UTC)
