Speedy deletion nomination of Richard Lewington (artist)[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 Richard Lewington (artist) 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 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. Kubanczyk (talk) 00:22, 4 January 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of David Wilson (photographer)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article David Wilson (photographer) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

With greatest respect to the subject of the article, Mr Wilson is a professional photographer, someone who has been recognised for his work, but is without any indications of notability in significant coverage in reliable sources that are independent of the subject.

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 {{proposed deletion/dated}} 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 {{proposed deletion/dated}} 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. Shirt58 (talk) 11:34, 4 January 2011 (UTC)

Capitalisation of bird, insect & plant names of Somerset Levels[edit]

Hi, I'm currently working to get Somerset Levels up to standard for nomination at FAC. It's had a peer review & currently undergoing a copy edit etc. This is throwing up lots of useful questions & specifically at Talk:Somerset Levels#Pre-FAC questions in a section titled "Biodiversity and conservation" the comment: "I understand that the capitalisation of common names for species is a bit of a hodge-podge right now, with no clear guidance, but it's surely hard to justify capitalising "Common Crane" and not "common snipe". Or capitalising neither." I've tried to improve this - but I'm a bit confused as well. Would you be willing/able to take a look at Somerset Levels#Biodiversity and conservation and offer any edits or advice?— Rod talk 09:05, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

Thanks, I've revised the paragraph - hopefully in line with your advice. It will be interesting to see if this is picked up if the article ever gets to FAC.— Rod talk 09:02, 17 January 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the article![edit]

SP-KP, Thanks for your article on range (biology). I have linked dozens of other articles to it in the last year.

cheers. Bruinfan12 (talk) 05:26, 17 February 2011 (UTC)

Twist, Colin, Rare Plants in Great Britain—a site guide[edit]

Hi, Ages ago you added "Twist, Colin, Rare Plants in Great Britain—a site guide" as a reference to several articles eg Cheddar Wood. It is now used in the Cheddar article which has been nominated for GA & the reviewer at Talk:Cheddar/GA1 is asking is this a book, web site or what & looking for a better reference (including an ISBN if it is a book). Are you able to kindly provide any further information?— Rod talk 09:06, 4 March 2011 (UTC)

Thanks. I can live without an ISBN but does it have a date of publication, publisher etc?— Rod talk 19:05, 4 March 2011 (UTC)
Thanks again - I've replaced it with the SSSI citation (and reworded because of close paraphrasing) - hopefully will keep the reviewer happy.— Rod talk 11:23, 5 March 2011 (UTC)

Paul Page[edit]

Saw your comment in the discussions thread looking for advise on how to include additional info on the page. My suggestion is you write up a well cited possible addition and just add it - if you posts continue to get the spam that I've read. Although the way to go is to seek comment before adding sections, and you obviously have been on Wiki much longer than I, I have noticed that the majority of editors are not out there to "add to" pages - they are simply out there to critique what other people put in. If you totally get slammed or your additions get red-lined to death, than at least you've done something more than argue about it. My 2 cents. Oh - and I also agree that the "homosexual" addition was unneeded and out of chracter for the rest of the article. Ckruschke (talk) 02:42, 6 March 2011 (UTC)Ckruschke
