Citation request[edit]

Hi Racklever. May I ask you, please, to make a small improvement to your citation pattern in the Deaths section of the 2015 in Ireland article? Now, your citations generally contain only the title of the source article, with an embedded link to that source, like this example:

Gerry Duffy – one of the greats of Irish cricket

We need at least two more details: the name of the cited publication ("RTÉ News", "Irish Times", etc.) and the date of publication (or retrieved date where publication date is absent), so that the complete citation should look like this:

Gerry Duffy – one of the greats of Irish cricket, Irish Times, 2015-07-27.

The Help article Wikipedia:Citing sources contains instructions and advice on how citations should be handled, but my request for just two extra items – publisher and date – should cover it if you do not have time to read the Help article. Thank you. — O'Dea (talk) 04:23, 29 September 2015 (UTC)

I am currently using the short format used in Deaths in 2015 to reduce page loading times.--Racklever (talk) 07:38, 29 September 2015 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Roland Collins[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 Roland Collins 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 credibly 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 read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, 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 from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator. --Non-Dropframe talk 12:24, 2 October 2015 (UTC)

I have removed the speedy template and added a bit from the Guardian obituary, which should stop this. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 14:43, 2 October 2015 (UTC)
