Pells manny[edit]

Pells manny appears to be copied from History of Stephenson County, Illinois by Addison L. Fulwider. Since the copyright of that book is 1910, it's probably okay to copy, but it's considered appropriate to indicate where you got the material from. In addition, the page should be at Pells Manny. I will move it accordingly. Woogee (talk) 20:16, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

April 2010[edit]

Information.svg Please do not remove speedy deletion notices from pages you have created yourself, as you did with Manny Reaper. Please use the {{hangon}} template on the page instead if you disagree with the deletion, and make your case on the page's talk page. Thank you. JamesBWatson (talk) 20:08, 20 April 2010 (UTC)

Information.svg Please do not remove maintenance templates from pages on Wikipedia, as you did to Manny Reaper, without resolving the problem that the template refers to, or giving a valid reason for the removal in the edit summary. Your removal of this template does not appear constructive, and has been reverted. The article is still unreferenced, and it does not help to remove the template saying so.

Proposed deletion of Manny reaper[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Manny reaper has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

No evidence of notability. The only source cited barely mentions the Manny reaper.

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 {{dated prod}} 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 {{dated prod}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. JamesBWatson (talk) 10:28, 22 April 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Mary Dorr[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Mary Dorr 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, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for biographies. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

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 that has been nominated for deletion (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 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. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you.

Proposed deletion of Harv Schmidt[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Harv Schmidt has been proposed for deletion because under Wikipedia policy, all biographies of living persons created after March 18, 2010, must have at least one source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't take offense. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Wikipedia:Referencing for beginners or ask at Wikipedia:Help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within ten days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. — e. ripley\talk 18:22, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Robert H. Tinker[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 Robert H. Tinker requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion, or "db", tag; if no such tag exists, then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hang-on tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, 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. Reaper Eternal (talk) 17:54, 31 January 2011 (UTC)

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material.

Using {{Infobox NBA Player}}[edit]

Hey I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know that you shouldn't use {{Infobox NBA Player}} if the player never played a single game in the league, regardless of whether that player was drafted by an NBA team or not. Boyd Batts, for example, should use {{Infobox basketball player}} because he played professionally overseas.

If a player only played in college at his highest level of competition (i.e. never played professionally in the NBA or overseas), then the appropriate infobox to use is {{Infobox NCAA Athlete}}. Gracias. Jrcla2 (talk) 21:10, 24 February 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Dolph Stanley.JPG[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Dolph Stanley.JPG requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a non-free file with a clearly invalid licensing tag; or it otherwise fails some part of the non-free content criteria. If you can find a valid tag that expresses why the file can be used under the fair use guidelines, please replace the current tag with that tag. If no such tag exists, please add the {{non-free fair use in|article name that the file is used in}} tag, along with a brief explanation of why this constitutes fair use of the file. If the file has been deleted, you can re-upload it, but please ensure you place the correct tag on it.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion, or "db", tag; if no such tag exists, then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hang-on tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay.

Hi friend[edit]

I just bumped into your piece on Rockford Central HS in the New Files queue. I wanted to stop by here to let you know that I think it's an interesting and nice looking page and to thank you for the work you did on it. I see here that you seem to be having copyright issues and otherwise to be running afoul of the Wikipedia apparatus from time to time and I just wanted to offer my services if there are any questions you have about this, that, or the other thing. Keep up the good work! Carrite (talk) 21:47, 9 March 2011 (UTC)

Navbox clutter[edit]

Please do not add unnecessary templates to each Illinois basketball season's article (e.g. this). The general rule of thumb for templates is to not throw them haphazardly around articles that tangentially relate to the article, especially when the article doesn't appear on them. The only template appropriate for the season articles is {{Illinois Fighting Illini men's basketball teams}}. Cheers. Jrcla2 (talk) 18:24, 15 May 2011 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:Frank j. Winters basketball coach.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Frank j. Winters basketball coach.png. 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.

Speedy deletion nomination of Fletcher Lane[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 Fletcher Lane 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 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. 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. TheLongTone (talk) 22:56, 13 December 2012 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:Fighting Illini coach Frank Loyer Pinckney.png)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:Fighting Illini coach Frank Loyer Pinckney.png. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media 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 media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not.

Use of Category:American basketball players[edit]

Hi - I just removed the category "American basketball players" that you'd added to Dwight Eddleman and I wanted to let you know why. Eddleman was already in the category Basketball players from Illinois and each state category is a sub-category of "American basketball players." The only time "American basketball players" should be used are in cases where a player cannot be connected with one of the state categories (birthplace unknown, born in a foreign country without specific ties to a state, etc.). Thanks and happy editing. Rikster2 (talk) 14:25, 16 January 2013 (UTC)

Illinois Mr. Basketball[edit]

I happened into this article on a false lead and stayed to do a bit of cleanup. As noted there in my Edit summary, there's potentially a larger problem with a major citation for the article. I see you're maybe a regular editor of the article. I'd encourage you to look for footnote sources for new material and if you can give attention to the Henrickson one too, that'd be great.

Illinois Fighting Illini football season article[edit]

Rhino83166, thanks for your recent edits to expand the early Illinois Fighting Illini football seasons. Please take a look at my edits to 1898 Illinois Fighting Illini football team. You made some formatting errors in the schedule table. In the date fields, the month should be spelled out and the year omitted, as the year is redundant. Also, take care to note away and neutral site games properly.

The roster table you've created here is pretty non-standard. We have templates to standardize the roster tables. Please see 2016 Illinois Fighting Illini football team for an example. Also, we should not have external links in the body of articles like you have been putting at the top of these roster tables.

Finally, please see a discussion I opened up at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject College football#Fork in college football independents records templates regarding some of the standings templates that you have created. Jweiss11 (talk) 02:11, 15 November 2016 (UTC)

Historical season team logos[edit]

Hello. Because you've created quite a bit of the Fighting Illini historical articles for the teams, please read this discussion. I've removed the former logo for the Illni in all articles that are prior to the 1989 season since it did not show up until that year. By placing a logo that wasn't used during the article's year, you are misguiding the visitors to those pages. Please only place the logo for that year. If you need help, http://www.sportslogos.net does a pretty good job of listing the correct logo and years. Thanks, Corkythehornetfan (ping me) 19:17, 24 November 2016 (UTC)

Ways to improve Dakota High School (Illinois)[edit]

Hi, I'm Boleyn. Rhino83166, thanks for creating Dakota High School (Illinois)!

I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix. This has been tagged as needing additional references, as much of the article appears to be unverified.

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse.
