Removing AfD template[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Please do not remove Articles for deletion notices from articles, or remove other people's comments in Articles for deletion debates, as you did with KNERO. Otherwise, it may be difficult to create consensus. If you oppose the deletion of an article, please comment at the respective page instead. This is an automated message from a bot about this edit, where you removed the deletion template from an article before the deletion discussion was complete. If this message is in error, please report it. Snotbot  t • c »  01:14, 5 March 2012 (UTC)

Requested username:

Request reason:

I'm just a writer that was impress by his story. I've been interested in his career. I just happen to make the user name the same, didn't know that was an issue. This is my first contribution to Wikipedia, and am unaware of all the regulations. I did not initially include my username as my personal name, thinking it would be best to use the name of the individual I am writing about. This is where all the confusion is coming into play I believe. Sarah 05:08, 15 March 2012 (UTC)

Accept reason:

Allowing username change to requested username. Please put this request in at Wikipedia:Changing username as soon as possible to avoid re-blocking. Either "S dot Kennedy", which you wrote, or "S. Kennedy", which you may have meant, should be OK. JamesBWatson (talk) 20:58, 16 March 2012 (UTC)

Unblocking administrator: Please check for active autoblocks on this user after accepting the unblock request.

Instructions to change my user name[edit]

Hey, OrangeMike. I'm totally lost. I've read the instructions to change my user name to my desire name for my username but I don't know what route to take. When I created THE "KNERO" article I've use the article name as my username not knowing it was going to be an issue. can you please guide me to avoid deletion?— Preceding unsigned comment added by Knero (talkcontribs)

You haven't told us what name you would want to use instead! --Orange Mike | Talk 15:23, 15 March 2012 (UTC)
He needs to use {{unblock-un}}. Daniel Case (talk) 19:56, 15 March 2012 (UTC)
Oops, My apologies! I'll like to use 'Sarah Kennedy'. Im goal is to basically not to have my artist deleted. I've been interested in an music artist story. I've been following for some time,
The account User:Sarah Kennedy is already taken. However, because the account has made no contributions to Wikipedia, you can usurp that name. It's a slightly different procedure than a simple username change; see WP:USURP for details. However, I'd recommend against it. Sarah Kennedy is three real persons already, two of which we have Wikipedia articles on. See Sarah Kennedy (disambiguation). Calling yourself "Sarah Kennedy" would not solve the impersonation issue for which you were blocked. I have modified your unblock request template above to show how to specify a username, please choose something else. Thanks. ~Amatulić (talk) 18:50, 16 March 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for the info. I'll only requested that name because it's my birth name. How about "S dot Kennedy"? -- S.Kennedy 19:44, 16 March 2012 (UTC)

unblock-un[edit]

{{unblock-un}}

  • You don't seem to be blocked anymore. You can request any name you like at WP:CHU/Simple as long as it isn't already in use, if you haven't already done so. ~Amatulić (talk) 23:18, 16 March 2012 (UTC)
  • Not sure what this is about, you are not directly blocked. If you are unable to edit please place another request detailing what message you are getting when you try to edit. Beeblebrox (talk) 00:34, 17 March 2012 (UTC)

Glad you got the name thing straightened out![edit]

As to why the Knero article got deleted: see WP:UPANDCOMING. Wikipedia articles are for those who have already achieved notability, not those who deserve it, or those who you are sure will achieve it someday. --Orange Mike | Talk 14:44, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

Understand! say this artist get signed to an major record label, would that reach Wikipedia's notability?— Preceding unsigned comment added by S.Kennedy (talkcontribs)
"Signed" and "actually gets an album released" are two vastly different things! Read this article for more detailed analysis of our musician-notability standards; then read this anthology of how not to do a music article. --Orange Mike | Talk 19:41, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

KNERO AfD comment[edit]

Cookies for you! Face-smile.svg

The KNERO article was deleted at KNERO AfD. Per Wikipedia:Notability, "if a topic has received significant coverage in reliable sources that are independent of the subject, it is presumed to satisfy the inclusion criteria for a stand-alone article." So far, I've found

"Among the entertainers being featured at this year’s cultural extravaganza are: ... as well as several Liberian upcoming recording artists, including Patrick Juwle, Joseph Coleman, kNERO, and Naomi Cojolo Kolleh, commonly known as Princess of Praise." "Liberia: Citizens In U.S. to Celebrate July 26th in Washington". AllAfrica.com. July 20, 2011. Retrieved March 23, 2012. .

I think you would agree that tidbit isn't enought on which to write a stand-alone biography article on kNERO. His website lacks any In-The-News page, so likely there isn't much kNERO coverage in reliable sources. It's possible there is reliable source material in Liberia. Have you checked there? -- Uzma Gamal (talk) 11:51, 23 March 2012 (UTC)

I'm assuming what's new for kNERO is his single "Not Drunk Enuff" featuring Adele Erichsen, who's on The Voice rite now along side signing single deal with CCAP records in Norway. I haven't reach out or know the route to take to get overseas details on the kNERO. From my understanding some artists don't always have news feed page on their website. --Sarah 16:53, 23 March 2012 (UTC)
For Liberian help, User:Aboutmovies significantly contributed to WikiProject Liberia and has written a number of Liberia related articles, You may receive a faster reply by posting on User Aboutmovies talk page than on the WikiProject Liberia talk page. You also may be able to get some help from African Wikipedians, such as Wikipedians interested in Liberia and Wikipedians in Liberia. Another option would be to contact kNERO and see if he has news clippings, ect. on his career. It's also possible that there is reliable source material under kNERO's real name and that may have been overlooked. -- Uzma Gamal (talk) 13:13, 24 March 2012 (UTC)


Great! thanks for the info! --Sarah 04:28, 30 March 2012 (UTC)

Besides the template above, AllAfrica has a lot of Liberia content, otherwise many other newspapers in Liberia are good as well (though some seemed to have disappeared from the web as of late). Plus, if you have a library card, many libraries have extensive databases you can access from home that allow access to magazines, journals, and newspapers. Aboutmovies (talk) 06:12, 2 May 2012 (UTC)


Hey guys I'm back... I'll like to know would this other article be able to aproved kNERO on Wikipedia? --Sarah 15:19, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

Knero[edit]

Hello S.Kennedy,

It seems to me that an article you worked on, Knero, may be copied from http://wikibin.org/articles/knero.html. It's entirely possible that I made a mistake, but I wanted to let you know because Wikipedia is strict about copying from other sites.

It's important that you edit the article and rewrite it in your own words, unless you're absolutely certain nothing in it is copied. If you're not sure how to fix the problem or have any questions, there are people at the help desk who are happy to assist you.

Thank you for helping build a free encyclopedia! MadmanBot (talk) 07:20, 27 November 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Knero[edit]

Hello S.Kennedy,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Knero for deletion, because it seems to be copied from another source.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to rewrite it in your own words, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. Thanks, Travelbird (talk) 07:27, 27 November 2012 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Knero[edit]

Hello, S.Kennedy. I wanted to let you know that I’m proposing an article that you started, Knero, for deletion because it's a biography of a living person that lacks references. If you don't want Knero to be deleted, please add a reference to the article.

If you don't understand this message, you can leave a note on my talk page.

Thanks,  Blanchardb -MeMyEarsMyMouth- timed 18:35, 27 November 2012 (UTC)

Knero[edit]

Greetings! Some of the references currently in the Knero article are unreliable. YouTube and IMDB are not reliable sources per WP:USERGENERATED. Promotional websites with little to no text are not reliable either. You can't remove the maintenance tags without adding better sources. Keep in mind that you can get block from editing if you continue to remove maintenance tags from article. Versace1608 (Talk) 03:27, 8 March 2015 (UTC)

I've found references, Thank you!--Sarah 16:54, 8 March 2015 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:Knero-Toure-designs-model-liberian-rapper.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Knero-Toure-designs-model-liberian-rapper.jpg. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Fut.Perf. 08:27, 9 March 2015 (UTC)
