I am looking for any information regarding Paul America.

Paul America[edit]

Hi. Thank you for fleshing out the Paul America article. As a huge fan of the Warhol scene, especially Edie Sedgwick, I was always curious to know what happened to him. Let me first say that I am sorry for your loss and as a fan, I am sadden to learn of Paul's tragic death. Since you said you're related to him, it's safe to assume that you have first hand knowledge of this info and it is correct, however, I removed your name and association with him from the reference section of the article. Wikipedia considers that original research and it cannot be used as a reliable source. I did not remove the content because, as I said, I trust that it is correct and it is better than having no information on him at all. If you have any third party sources that can be given (ie newspaper article, death certificate, etc), please include it. If you're not sure how to add citations, please let me know and I'll do it for you. It is important to source everything that is included otherwise any unsourced content can be removed by anyone at any time. I see there is a list of references and since I have the Edie book and the warholstars.org site can be easily accessed, I plan on adding proper citations to the article later for verification purposes. I went ahead and cleaned up the article by adding sections, additional categories, reformatting type, and adding an infobox. If you have any problems with these changes or have any other questions, please let me know on my talk page or contact an administrator. Pinkadelica (talk) 10:21, 1 February 2008 (UTC)
