Mendelssohn move[edit]

The title you chose may be the most "correct", but is not in line with our Naming conventions, and so I have reverted your move. Kusma (talk) 16:25, 12 March 2007 (UTC)

Frank @[edit]

The biography is lifted from The Frank Sinatra article should be as tight as that review, but that concentrates strictly on his music, ignoring his 'extracurricular activites', and with too many superlatives. I wrote the 1970's/80's/ and 90's sections, and have tried to referenceGareth E Kegg 02:14, 26 April 2007 (UTC) as much as possible...if you could help along those lines it would be marvellous :)

List of words removed from the English Dictionary[edit]

List of words removed from the English Dictionary has been proposed for deletion. An editor felt this list might not be appropriate for Wikipedia. See Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not and Wikipedia:List guideline for relevant guidelines. If you can improve the article to address these concerns, please do so.

If no one objects to the deletion within five days by removing the prod notice, the article may be deleted without further discussion. If you remove the prod notice, the deletion process will stop, but if an editor is still not satisfied that the article meets Wikipedia guidelines, it may be sent to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion for consensus.

Kristopher Kubicki(journalist)[edit]

A tag has been placed on Kristopher Kubicki(journalist), requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under 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.

Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. If you plan to expand the article, you can request that administrators wait a while for you to add contextual material. To do this, affix the template {{hangon}} to the page and state your intention on the article's talk page. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this.

Speedy deletion of Peter's Chocolate[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Peter's Chocolate 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 blatant 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.

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 include on the external site the statement "I, (name), am the author of this article, (article name), and I release its content under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.2 and later." You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the article (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 would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

You're the one who added the copyvio tag to the article. There's discussion at WP:AN#SKS Copyvios right now. Any insights you might have could help. -Royalguard11(T·R!) 17:44, 6 December 2007 (UTC)

Re Marco Benz[edit]

The article did not say why the person was notable and had no references to back up his notability, what did this person do to make him warrant a Wiki entry? Being related to someone famous doesn't create notability on its own and another 2 million people joined the army and it doesn't make them notable, but if you think the person is notable then gather more external links to prove it, the links I've read don't say much about what he's done.--The Dominator (talk) 04:19, 13 January 2008 (UTC)

I didn't delete, I'm not an administrator it was this person: User:Philippe, I must however warn you that consensus was reached and the article was already created and deleted several times. In my opinion it is not notable.--The Dominator (talk) 16:56, 13 January 2008 (UTC)

Your recent edits[edit]

Hi there. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment.

Proposed deletion of Hoover's Hunters[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Hoover's Hunters, 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 explains why the article was proposed for deletion (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.

Your contributions are appreciated. In the case of USMC articles, subordinate units of Battalions do not generally have articles. — ERcheck (talk) 01:27, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

Re: Hoovers Hunters[edit]

No doubt most/all USMC companies had notable service. As noted above, USMC Battalions have their own articles; and notable actions of the Battalion and their companies are captured in the article. For Hoover's Hunters, there is already an article on their Battalion — 3rd Reconnaissance Battalion. If you have information on the Battalion or Hoover's Hunters that can be reliably sourced, please consider adding it to the 3rd Recon Battalion article. If you feel strongly that the Company itself has sufficient notability on its own for an article, I suggest that you more fully expand the article before putting it in Main Space. I'm going to restore the most recent version of the article into a sandbox that I created in your Name Space — User:Root Beers/Sandbox.

If you would like a review prior to moving it to Main Space, drop me a line and/or send a note to User talk:Looper5920. He likely would be happy to discuss it with you.

With respect to Captain Hoover, if you feel that he meets notability guidelines and feel you can create a reliably sourced article, you might want to work on it in the sandbox.

Re: Google Chrome[edit]

For the record, the "reversion" happened because the document was being edited in parallel by several users. Please read revision comments. Amadeust (talk) 04:55, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

December 2009[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg Please stop adding inappropriate external links to Wikipedia. It is considered spamming and Wikipedia is not a vehicle for advertising or promotion. Because Wikipedia uses nofollow tags, additions of links to Wikipedia will not alter search engine rankings. If you continue spamming, you will be blocked from editing Wikipedia. this edit PirateArgh!!1! 14:46, 3 December 2009 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
