Speedy deletion nomination of MultiCharts[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on MultiCharts, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become an encyclopedia article. Please read the guidelines on spam as well as Wikipedia:FAQ/Business for more information. 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.

Your contributed article, MultiCharts[edit]

Hello, I notice that you recently created a new page, MultiCharts. First, thank you for your contribution; Wikipedia relies solely on the efforts of volunteers such as you. Unfortunately, the page you created covers a topic on which we already have a page - Multicharts. Because of the duplication, your article has been tagged for speedy deletion. Please note that this is not a comment on you personally and we hope you will to continue helping improve Wikipedia. If the topic of the article you created is one that interests you, then perhaps you would like to help out at Multicharts - you might like to discuss new information at the article's talk page.

If you think that the article you created should remain separate, 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. Additionally if you would like to have someone review articles you create before they go live so they are not nominated for deletion shortly after you post them, allow me to suggest the article creation process and using our search feature to find related information we already have in the encyclopedia. Try not to be discouraged. Wikipedia looks forward to your future contributions. TeapotgeorgeTalk 12:44, 3 November 2010 (UTC)

Dear JamesBWatson, The page Multicharts no longer exists, because it redirects to MultiCharts. The spelling of the name has been corrected.

The article Multicharts certainly does still exist. The fact that you have hidden its content by changing it to a redirect does not alter that fact. If you disagree with the presentation in an article you should be prepared to take part in discussion on the article's talk page with a view to reaching consensus. It is not acceptable to simply create your own POV fork and attempt to remove the existing article in order to impose your own version. I should also point out that incorporating material by other editors into a new article without any acknowledgement of the fact is an infringement of their copyright. I see that you have now created this article three times, and it has again been tagged for speedy deletion. Please do not continue in this way, or you may be blocked from editing. JamesBWatson (talk) 13:13, 3 November 2010 (UTC)

Dear JamesBWatson,

I wrote the original article, as I am sure you can see by the logs, so I thought it within my rights to delete it. However, I am merely attempting to update it with current and unbiased information, and change the 'c' in the name to a capital 'C'. If I can do that within the original article, that would be great. I don't care if it redirects, or not, but the name has to be reflected properly. Please help me do that, I would be most obliged. I will not proceed with recreating the article, because that's useless. Please advise how to achieve the ends I described above. You guys sure delete pages quickly, perhaps much too quickly.

The record shows that the article was first written by User:Tsstss. Was that another account of yours? If you wrote an article and nobody else has significantly contributed to it then certainly you can normally have it deleted, and in fact the tag {{db-author}} exists precisely to let you request deletion in that situation. However, in this case there seem to have been contributions from several editors, and you do not have an automatic right to deletion in that situation. (I say "seem to have been" because, apart from the possibility that Tsstss may be you, there are also many edits by anonymous IP editors, who for all I know may be you. However, since we have no way of knowing that we can't assume they are.) You are of course free to edit the existing article to update information, but I should remind you that the other version of the article that you wrote was tagged as being written as an advertisement, so you need to be careful. (I have no opinion on whether that opinion was correct.) As for the change in capitalisation of the title of the article, I have already done that. I looked carefully at the history of the article and at your comments, checked on the web, and found that you were right about that, so I went ahead. (You see, however it may look to people who are understandably annoyed because their work has been deleted, I don't simply delete articles without checking what is happening.) JamesBWatson (talk) 13:41, 3 November 2010 (UTC)

Dear JamesBWatson, Thank you for your balanced and helpful insight and comments. I completely understand your position regarding the autodeletion, that was not a goal in its own to begin with. Users like you put a lot of effort into moderating the contributions, and I appreciate the time you spent actually researching this issue. Thanks for helping with the capitalization of the title, would have taken me a while to find out how to do that (if I was even able to, with my permissions.). I will proceed to update the article with relevant and verifiable information, so that other users may benefit from it. Sbokov (talk) 14:06, 3 November 2010 (UTC)

In case you need to know in the future, changing the title of an article is normally easy. You use the "Move" link. Assuming you use the default Wikipedia interface, near the top of the page you will see a list of links including Read, Edit, View history, then a star, then a little triangle. If you point your mouse at the triangle the "Move" link will appear. Why it is hidden behind a triangle instead of being made visible I can't imagine: it is for reasons such as this that I don't use the default interface. You may have noticed that I said "changing the title of an article is normally easy". Sometimes you can't do it unless you are an admin. The commonest reason for this is that there is already a page with the title you want to move to, in which case you can place {{db-move|1=PAGE TO BE MOVED HERE|2=REASON FOR MOVE}} on the page to be deleted, so that an admin knows which page is to be moved and why, and can perform the move. Finally, I apologise for my perhaps rather unfriendly tone in my comments above. I realise that you were acting in good faith, and I could have been more positive.
