Hi, just a note--Wikipedia is not a collection of source material. For that, you might want to check out our sister project, Wikisource. They already had the text of The Cornelian there, so I've deleted the version you posted here. Best wishes, Meelar (talk) 21:15, July 25, 2005 (UTC)

ART[edit]

Hello, You voted my page on Amanda Eliasch to be deleted which was a lot of work. Yet I believe you want help on Woodcarving, it would be nice if you had supported me. Amanda has many credible articles, as does woodcarving. I think that many people should be on Wikipedia. If the art world in England can support her, then you should too. Hollywood does too, they supported her artistic work. Hope you will reconsider your opinion as I have now re sorted some of it. Just not brilliant yet as codes. So give me a chance. Thanks and I will support your endeavours to get woodcarving fully recognised. Incidentally her page was up for 6 years without any criticism before. Good luck, off to check woodcarving AERATBAG (talk) 09:08, 16 August 2014 (UTC)AERATBAGAERATBAG (talk) 09:08, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

Woodcarving[edit]

I noticed that you have contributed to the Wood carving article. Please vote for Woodcarving at the Wikipedia:Article Improvement Drive --Reflex Reaction 14:56, 21 September 2005 (UTC)

Redirect bypassation[edit]

Hi, I noticed that you made an edit to bypass a redirect at Pattern matching. However, WP:REDIRECT specifically forbids editing solely to avoid redirects - it introduces needsless verbiage at a net heavier load on the servers. Please bear this in mind when you are pondering circumventing redirects. --Sam Pointon 22:34, 6 July 2006 (UTC)

My mistake - it was adding a whole new link, not just piping. I should look at the diffs closer. --Sam Pointon 22:36, 6 July 2006 (UTC)

Tobacco Smoking[edit]

I see that you have made major contributions to the Tobacco smoking page on Wikipedia and I have a question. Do you know anything about tobacco farm subsidies as they relate to the government fight against smoking? --GoOdCoNtEnT 20:58, 4 August 2006 (UTC)


Sorry GoOdCoNtEnT, haven't a scobie. scope_creep 19:38, 5 August 2006 (UTC)

British linkfixing[edit]

Since [[United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland|British]] wikilinks to a redirect, wouldn't it be simpler to just make your edits point to United Kingdom? Or am I missing something? --DeLarge 22:19, 4 August 2006 (UTC)


Naw, I don't think so. There is 3 seperate phases of brits, most of them cover that (80%). There is also the British empire, which is in the second period. I think it would blur it. If you could identiy which articles relate to brits later than 1922, the modern era and wasn't antyhing to do with army, then you would get 80% of them, and the link could be put in there. i think 10% 300 or so, is 1700 stuff. I think this is my last disamg gaf. (scope_creep 19:37, 5 August 2006 (UTC))

I reiterate the OP. Please stop disambigging to a redirect. Eitehr fix the link properly, or leave it as it is. - UtherSRG (talk) 20:07, 23 August 2006 (UTC)

"Speedy delete" call[edit]

With regards to this edit:

Please note that "non notable" is not a criteria for speedy deletion. Failure to assert notability is. For more information on when exactly to call for (as well as when not to call for) a speedy delete, refer to Wikipedia:Criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you.

Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/The_NESkimos[edit]

Could you also look at your vote on the NESkimos artical? The arguments for a keep are there, but to recap for you, 1. The artical passes one, maybe two, points, however it only needs to pass ONE. 2. Notable sources have been cited.

Thank you very much!

XPLANE[edit]

Regarding your vote for deletion: I reviewed the Wikipedia deletion policy and did not see "notable" as a requisite criteria for inclusion. I believe that XPLANE IS notable, however I petition you to withdraw your vote for deletion as it does not appear to be supported by the Wikipedia policy. dgray_xplane

AFD for Einstein's Special Theory Of Relativity[edit]

You added this Afd to the afd log, but did not actually nominate it for afd. I have removed it from the Afd log. If you wish to nominate it for deletion, please follow the steps at WP:AFD#How to list pages for deletion. Regards, Flyguy649talkcontribs 17:59, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

Update process of software deployment[edit]

In the software deployment discussion you commented that "...updating software is a nightmare sometimes. I think is needs several categories the question is what." I have added an expanded Update section with two major subcategories, built-in and version tracking. I'm not sure what you were expecting and I would appreciate your comments.

Re: Help with creating maps[edit]

Hello Scope creep,

Thanks for the contact. Thinking hard how exactly I can get across the map-making process, I think the first question I should ask should be if you are familliar with Adobe Illustrator or other vector based graphics software? If you're familliar with this kind of software I think I can communicate the process quite well. -- Jza84 · (talk) 21:34, 28 October 2007 (UTC)

Jewish subversion[edit]

Hello, it would be nice if you could help out with adding the literature you've read about this topic, so that we can collaborate on the article and make it NPOV and report on this historical topic of Jewish history. Your help is appreciated. — EliasAlucard|Talk 19:53 31 Oct, 2007 (UTC)

AfDs[edit]

On November 18., you contributed to 78 different AfD debates over 9 hours, some of them several times. I admire your industry--and your remarkable range of interests--but one thing that would help us all, is that if you failed to find sources for an article, tell us where you looked so the work doesn't have to be duplicated. DGG (talk) 21:47, 18 November 2007 (UTC)

Scottish Junior football[edit]

You recently contributed to an AfD for several Scottish Junior Football Association teams, you are aware that Junior football does not mean youth football in Scotland Aren't you?King of the NorthEast 00:01, 19 November 2007 (UTC)

Do you actually have any knowledge about Scottish football outwith the SPL or are you just another ignorant user who wants to rid wikipedia of any articles with are of no relevance to you personally?

Junior football is a very valued level of football where local communities can go along and get involved with their local team and feel like the can influence to help the local area. Please can you put any respond on my usertalk page, thanks Dreamweaverjack (talk) 04:42, 20 November 2007 (UTC)

AfD edit summaries[edit]

Please use your edit summaries. Further, adding a comment either for or against is not at all a minor edit. Rather, put a summary, even just 'delete' or 'keep'. When nominators or other involved parties set the AfD to be watched, they won't see your input, jsut he bolded M. thank you. ThuranX (talk) 00:22, 19 November 2007 (UTC)

AFD[edit]

If you're going to be an AFD regular from now on, I think we all would appreciate it if you would familiarize yourself better with policy documents. For instance, "hail to the speedy" is really unnecessary and misleading when articles are not eligible for an actual speedy deletion. Speedy is not for getting rid of stuff you don't like faster. Also, when making arguments about notability, try to generalize a little less and invoke policy a little more. We're not asking for your opinion of the person, we're asking for your evaluation of the article and its conformance to guidelines. Thanks! --Dhartung | Talk 19:12, 19 November 2007 (UTC)

AFD[edit]

Is this a typo?. Regards, Rudget.talk 19:17, 19 November 2007 (UTC)

Its a really scrappy article, but I think we should keep all schools. If we keep, the article needs updated, rewritten and probably wikied. Could you please refer to actual policy rather than WP:ILIKEIT?Garrie 02:59, 21 November 2007 (UTC)

AERATBAG (talk) 12:00, 14 August 2014 (UTC)User:Aeratbag/talkAERATBAG (talk) 12:00, 14 August 2014 (UTC)I need help over Amanda Eliasch. I and another put a lot of effort into the page, which is our first. She is a poet, writer and won many awards for her film. I think it is therefore surprising that she is up for deletion. Wikipedia covers many topics and it is egalitarian. I am sure you would agree. I would therefore be appreciate any help getting the article correct I should think that reviews in the New York Times, Village Voice, New York Observer, New York Sun and The New Yorker would establish notability!

Hi, no it does not. Read WP policies regarding the matter. It is clearly not notable. scope_creep (talk) 22:03, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

This has been previously debated and resolved in favor of pages similar to In Vento[edit]

Please read the (much too) long debates on my talk page (they're way too long -- and boring! -- to cross post.) If you want I can refer you to various articles' talk pages with further debates.

An unrelated matter; please post your comments at the bottom of my talk page (or anybody else's for that matter). You can do so automatically by clicking on the little plus sign between "edit this page" and "history".

David M. Broome notability[edit]

I've deleted the speedy tag from the article David M. Broome because I believe the references in the article at least presume to give some indication for real notability. Please feel free to prod or send to WP:AFD if you continue to disagree.

After much struggling with the author about the speedy tag, he's gotten the message and now seems to understand how things work here. - CobaltBlueTony™ talk 22:33, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Meat shoot speedy tag[edit]

Hi there, I've declined the speedy tag here although I absolutely agree that the article is original research. However OR is not a sufficient reason for speedying, and I suggest going through WP:PROD or WP:AFD instead. Incidentally, when tagging an article it's a good idea to warn the originating editor that you've done so. I guess you applied the tag manually? Using something like WP:TWINKLE does this autmoatically (sorry if I'm teaching grandma to suck eggs here...) Kim Dent-Brown (Talk) 22:49, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

AfD[edit]

Why have you nominated FIMI number-one hits of 2002 and FIMI number-one hits of 2008 for deletion? There's absolutely nothing wrong with those articles, they're sourced and everything, and you didn't give a reason for deletion either. Funk Junkie (talk) 23:44, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Curious...[edit]

...as to why you did this for an articles whose only content was "Kinetic Communications is based in Birmingham, Alabama and is an internet technology studio specializing in web site development, video production and interactive multimedia presentations". John Reaves 00:25, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

Edit summaries[edit]

Please use edit summaries when tagging articles for speedy deletion. You may also want to hold your horses as you have had a number of nominations declined recently. Catchpole (talk) 10:34, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

Stephen Farrows and the Rig Rompers[edit]

I believe that this is a good and benefitial article. But it is not notable. How would the Author make this notable to Wikipedia's tight restrictions? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Stephenbarrows15 (talkcontribs) 02:15, 23 February 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of List of places in East Renfrewshire[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on List of places in East Renfrewshire requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an article with no content whatsoever, or whose contents consist only of external links, "See also" section, book reference, category tag, template tag, interwiki link, rephrasing of the title, or an attempt to contact the subject of the article. 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.

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 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. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you. Mblumber (talk) 13:34, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

Prod[edit]

I've put a prod tag on Achnacloich, Isle of Skye. There are numerous sub-hamlets in the system that are plucked out of gazetteers and unlikely ever to become meaningful articles. Ben MacDui 07:21, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

Achnaluachrach, and Achnaluacharch[edit]

Hi Scope Creep, I assume these two actually refer to the same place - can you confirm? If so can you redirect the one with the mis-spelling to the one without, as it's not obvious to me. If they are not, then I think a {{distinguish}} template is fairly essential! Thanks, Jonathan Oldenbuck (talk) 10:49, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

Um, just a thought, in future could you make sure that entries are not "crap", before adding articles. I suggest that making sure that a place exists is a prerequisite for starting an article. A number of users have raised concerns in the past that "non-places" are being added all too frequently. Please see this discussion at Wikiproject Scotland. Thanks, Jonathan Oldenbuck (talk) 15:43, 29 September 2008 (UTC)
Achnaluachrach is listed in a book of Scottish Place Names, from the Gaelic: achadh ("field") & luachair ("rushes"); and I've found it on a map. The second one my be a typo, as it is not in the book nor the map.Pyrotec (talk) 16:23, 29 September 2008 (UTC)
It strikes me that Achnaluachrach, Sutherland is a single farm (is it current or a ruin?) and the Glen Spean Lodge Hotel at Roybridge is at Achluachrach (map). Both of the names used in this header are mis-spelt. Neither is worthy of an article! Better to have a Roybridge article, which could mention the hotel, a hostel (Àite Cruinnichidh) and an impressive gorge on the river - I can recommend all 3. Finavon (talk) 18:09, 29 September 2008 (UTC)
Scope creep, no probs, I didnt realise you were involved with such a herculean task, so I was maybe a bit snappy too. But I still think these borderline places need to be checked, not only as to whether they exist, but as Finavon comments, whether they merit an article in the first place. I don't know how feasible that is, (without actually going there!) but personally I would err on the side of caution. Verifiability is after all WP's most fundamental policy. Regards, Jonathan Oldenbuck (talk) 08:40, 30 September 2008 (UTC)
Sounds good, the OS maps are really detailed, and up to date too. Keep up the good work! Regards, Jonathan Oldenbuck (talk) 16:28, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

Small villages[edit]

Whilst your industry is admirable I wonder if you would mind checking that the OS grid references you provide for Highland villages are accurate and that the OS map links there? Also, please note that villages on Skye fall under Category:Skye Villages. Thanks. Ben MacDui 12:22, 1 January 2009 (UTC).

A little research is a wonderful thing. Sconser is hardly "remote" in the context of the west Highlands. As you later note, it is on the main road. Category:Villages in Highland is very large and needs attention. This is why Skye villages are placed in Category:Skye Villages. If you are going to cut and paste text for numerous articles on these tiny places, you might at least save others the trouble of having to change this every time. Please also note that "Isle of Skye" is a redirect, this being a colloquial expression. The islands name is Skye. Thank-you. Ben MacDui 07:22, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

Please not that Ross-shire has not been a county since 1889. Better to use Wester Ross, Ross and Cromarty etc. Ben MacDui 07:51, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

Re:Applecross[edit]

Hi Scope creep - was there any reason why you deleted the coordinates for Applecross? I've put them back, but if there was a good reason why you took them out, feel free to remove them again - preferably with some explanation in the edit summary! Grutness...wha? 05:56, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

Ah, OK - that makes sense. Sorry that I didn't see the double-up of coordinates. Grutness...wha? 05:56, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

Question: I'm unfamiliar with these children's books, and find nothing when I search Google with the term "Bobo Bowen" or when I search Dorling Kindersley's site with the terms "Wendy James" or "The Adventures of Bobo Bowen". Can you help me out here? AtomikWeasel (talk) 02:00, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Hi, Thanks for responding. Agreed. I don't doubt you for an instant, but without anything we can find I suppose it's best you remove it pending a proper cite of some sort. – If that makes sense to you as well. AtomikWeasel (talk) 03:08, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion tagging[edit]

Please take a few minutes to read over the speedy deletion guidelines. I have been following you around, trying to clean up your mis-tagged articles.

this needs refs, but is certainly not gibberish

Same deal here

--Terrillja talk 00:38, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

--Thanks for the help, I know I made a boo boo of some of that. I've read the speedy deletion guidelines. I've been spending the last couple of hours trying to apply them, i'll need to do a bit more reading of wp policies, get a bit more practive in. scope_creep (talk) 00:50, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

No problem, I made a ton of mistakes when I was learning. If you aren't sure on one, want me to check over them or have any other questions, feel free to drop a note on my talkpage. FWIW, I use twinkle to tag with csd tags. Once you get the idea of the criteria, you may want to check it out. Helps with AfD tagging too, you just have to be careful because it can be too easy to tag an article for csd or AfD--Terrillja talk 00:53, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

Israel-Poland relations.[edit]

Serious Eats entry[edit]

Hey, dude. I saw you hit "Serious Eats" up for a speedy deletion. I wanted to thank you for being vigilant with articles that may not meet Wikipedian standards, such as Ariel Zelichov, which was a good catch. But I would ask you to take the time to read the talk pages before you do so. Thanks. Ks64q2 (talk) 03:42, 15 March 2009 (UTC)

The Food Channel[edit]

This may well fail WP:WEB but the standard for speedy deletion is stricter than that. Specifically "The criterion does not apply to any article that makes any credible claim of significance or importance even if the claim is not supported by a reliable source. If the claim's credibility is unclear, you can improve the article yourself, propose deletion, or list the article at articles for deletion." The criteria also specifically state that this "is a lower standard than notability". In general this is taken to mean that if there are suggestions that it could meet notablity requirements then it shouldn't be speedied. The two sources indicate why it may be notable. Additionally the article also mentions a newsletter which was published regularly for a long time which also indicates to me it may be notable. Finally it's been around for a while with some pretty regular editors have edited it, and has been the subject of discussion at WP:RfD so if it were an obvious speedy I'm sure someone else would've tagged it. Yes I accept this is a border line case but all-in-all, for the little extra effort involved, I think this is worth taking to WP:PROD or WP:AfD. Dpmuk (talk) 10:13, 16 March 2009 (UTC)

However, you had !voted 'delete', and so your response would be useful, either to confirm that you still think that the article should be deleted, or that the article should now be kept. -- PhantomSteve/talk|contribs\ 14:47, 1 September 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for your help with SkillSlate[edit]

Appreciated. I'm hunting for more people to write about for biographies; if you know of anybody who is notable, with references, that I can write about, tell me their name and what they do, and I'll consider it, thanx.--Tomwsulcer (talk) 02:12, 13 November 2010 (UTC)

Ferness[edit]

Good to see your tireless efforts to tidy List of places in Highland. I've re-added Ferness as the real place is in fact in Highland, south of Nairn. The name was also used for the fictional setting of the film Local Hero, hence the Aberdeenshire confusion. --Deskford (talk) 20:47, 16 January 2011 (UTC)

Wikipedian in Residence at the National Library of Scotland[edit]

I'm just dropping you a quick note about a new Wikipedian in Residence job that's opened up at the National Library of Scotland.

I have unreviewed a page you curated[edit]

Thanks for reviewing Ride and Tie, Scope creep.

Unfortunately Hasteur has just gone over this page again and unreviewed it. Their note is:

Speedy deletion declined: Opi Karim[edit]

Hello Scope creep. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Opi Karim, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: Not unambiguous advertising (can be cleaned without a fundamental rewrite). Thank you. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 01:51, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

Unreviewed articles[edit]

Hey Scope Creep. I recently got a talkpage message from you informing me that you had unreviewed two articles I had reviewed, List of Break Free episodes and Leon Pape respectively. To "List of Break Free episodes" you added a refimprove tag, something that was already present prior to your edit. For Leon Pape you made, according to the page history, no changes or maintenance tags at all. Why did you unreview the articles? Ironholds (talk) 03:24, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

I note that you've now returned to editing. Could you please address these queries? Ironholds (talk) 09:41, 3 July 2013 (UTC)

Component analysis (research)[edit]

I just wanted to let you know that I declined your A1 speedy deletion nomination of Component analysis (research). In the criterion's definition, it clearly points out that it is only meant to be used for very short articles, which I do not believe this falls under. Furthermore, I would argue that it is possible to identify the subject of the article through its context, which is why I have declined the speedy deletion nomination.--Slon02 (talk) 00:53, 2 July 2013 (UTC)

Hi Slon. I'm still going to have to nominate this for deletion, although I don't really want to, because I'm an illusionist by nature and it looks as interesting subject. I've looked at this article for some time, and still can't make of it sense. For instance what does changing behavior in relation to what. Also you have defined the article in negation to something else, which is never a good idea. Also the article sources only point to a single source. Without extensive reading of the single references, it impossible to determine the context of this article. scope_creep (scope_creep) 16:05, 5 July 2013 (UTC)
By all means, nominate the article for deletion if you think it is appropriate. I'm not saying that deletion isn't appropriate in this case- just that speedy deletion isn't.--Slon02 (talk) 15:36, 5 July 2013 (UTC)

Your signature[edit]

Hi Scope creep: One of your recent AfDs was added to a list I watch, and I noticed when I looked that your signature doesn't contain a link either to your talkpage or your userpage. This is against the rules and is likely to be frustrating for the article creators you're notifying about the AfDs, so could you please fix it asap? Thanks!

Richard Castaldo[edit]

Hello, in the AfD debate about Richard Castaldo, you made a harshly critical remark that I think was intended for the Scott Holleran AfD. Castaldo is not a follower of Ayn Rand. On the contrary, he is a leftist and a member of the Green Party, as well as the victim of a horrific crime. i encourage you to make a correction.

Re: Rüchardt Experiment[edit]

Re your message: Yes, a couple of anonymous editors left a few messages asking for somebody to create an article about the experiment. They noted that an article exists on the German Wikipedia, that there is information available in undergraduate courses (gave a now dead link to a PDF at the University of British Columbia), and the mention of a journal article: Modification of Rüchardt's Experiment. Feel free to create a brand new talk page. I had deleted it way back then as a matter of cleaning up orphaned talk pages. -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 19:13, 2 November 2013 (UTC)

Hello. You participated in a 2007 discussion at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Teflon character.

We noticed though that when you edited Gisbert Hasenjaeger, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Hao Wang (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Replaceable fair use File:Universal Turing machine, built by Gisbert Hasenjaeger.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Universal Turing machine, built by Gisbert Hasenjaeger.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. 13:29, 19 March 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: The Fresh Grocer[edit]

Hello Scope creep. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of The Fresh Grocer, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: Maybe you would have a case for A7 (notability) - maybe, but not for G11 as it does not look like an ad. Thank you. Alexf(talk) 18:17, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

Speedy Deletion Ewan Kirk and Colm O'Shea[edit]

Thank you for nominating my two articles for speedy deletion. I will be contesting both. Both Colm O'Shea and Ewan Kirk are important british business men and manage amongst the largest hedge funds in the world. If you believe that neither of these are important, then you should also mark for speedy deletion the 100's of other important hedge fund managers listed on wikipedia. Here is a link to get you started. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:American_hedge_fund_managers https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:English_hedge_fund_managers. There is nothing promotional about the pieces that I have written. They are objective, well sourced, and in no way suggest that anyone should invest in these funds and they do not mention the returns. There are probably 50 multibillion hedge funds based in the UK, I plan on slowly starting wikipedia pages on the most important ones over the next few months. As you can see from my above links the American Fund managers are better represented on Wikipedia than the British ones, and for no good reason. It is neither productive nor helpful you deleting these pieces. If you feel they are badly written or promotional please feel free to edit them. I based the writing style on other Wikipedia profiles of famous hedge fund managers, and I can not see how my pieces are any different than the existing pieces that you have maybe just not gotten around to deleting. Hedgefunding (talk) 17:38, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

Deletion decline Mara Adamitz Scrupe[edit]

Scope-creep, I decline your recommendation for deleting my article: Mara Adamitz Scrupe. I took my user name because I have visited this artist's studio. There is no other association, and I believe that your posting is egregious in its assumptions. The article is about an acclaimed American artist and educator, it is well researched and accurately attributed. I am new to Wikipedia and it has taken me some time to learn how to use the system so I trust that you will receive this message. I have removed your posting from my new article. Thank you.

inre Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Broadway 4D[edit]

I appreciate your bringing this to AFD, but to answer your statement "Can't see how the article context can be notable, it's been cancelled", I direct you to WP:NFF (paragraph 2)... which tells us how even a failed or unmade project can be just notable enough per the guidelines to find a place within the encyclopedia. Be well. Schmidt, Michael Q. 20:16, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Amer Huneidi[edit]

Just for future reference, if you want to nominate an article for deletion and there's been a prior AFD discussion, then you don't relist it by affixing a new comment to the bottom of the original discussion and then relisting that — rather, you need to create a new discussion page at the title "Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Amer Huneidi (2nd nomination)". It's a moot point in this case, as I've already speedy deleted the article as a G4 ("recreation of deleted content") — but if you ever find yourself in a similar situation again, please initiate a new discussion instead of appending your nomination to the old one. Thanks. Bearcat (talk) 22:03, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

I was referring to this edit, in which you initiated a new AFD discussion about the article by adding it to the bottom of the first, already closed discussion instead of by starting a new page. I speedied the article afterward because it qualified for speedy as a recreation of deleted content, so you don't need to do anything now — but I just needed to let you know that if you come across a similar situation in the future, you need to create a new AFD discussion by adding "(2nd nomination)" to the page's title, rather than appending your renomination to the first one. Bearcat (talk) 22:26, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
The article did exist at the time all of this happened; it doesn't exist now because I speedied it afterward. All I know is that it's your name on the diff, your signature on the new comment, and your name on the edit that added the AFD template to the article — I don't know how Page Curation works when it comes to AFD nominations, so maybe it made a technical error and accidentally appended your deletion rationale to the first nomination instead of creating a new one, but it all happened under your name.

Hey, I declined the speedy at GTA (group). There was enough of an assertion of notability to where it just falls short of being a good speedy candidate.

Ted Barnes[edit]

about the Ted Barnes article - I started it because I heard a couple of pieces on radio and thought them good, that's all really - the presenter said he worked with beth Orton and such and I thought he sounded notable -I didn't realize there was an article called Clayhill either that covers much of the notable work - so if it is deleted I think that's probably right after all.

Hi there. Just wanted to let you know I moved your AFD discussion to anew page, located here. Page curation messed it up somehow and it was putting it on the original discussion page. Might need to see if that was a one time thing or if there's a problem with the code for it. —Torchiest talkedits 20:20, 22 September 2015 (UTC)

Delete ?[edit]

Hi,

Please see this article, Ajit Ravi. I feel this is ridiculous, people are creating articles for themselves. The reference given is also his own website. Kindly have a look and if necessary, suggest for deletion or you may be able to develop also. I am not favouring any single line articles but I don't work in this area so, suggesting you to take necessary action. DreamSparrow Chat 18:24, 26 September 2015 (UTC)

Deletion discussion about Words of Farewell[edit]

Hello, とある白い猫,

I wanted to let you know that there's a discussion about whether Words of Farewell should be deleted. Your comments are welcome at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Words of Farewell .

If you're new to the process, articles for deletion is a group discussion (not a vote!) that usually lasts seven days. If you need it, there is a guide on how to contribute. Last but not least, you are highly encouraged to continue improving the article; just be sure not to remove the tag about the deletion nomination from the top.

Thanks, scope_creep 15:45, 26 September 2015 (UTC)

Hi, I did create that page but it was an article on an Anime which was then merged to a larger list. You ought to notify ShockD (talk · contribs) instead since the overridden the redirect to create the current article on the metal band. -- A Certain White Cat chi? 10:11, 27 September 2015 (UTC)

Review of deletion criteria[edit]

Hello scope_creep. It looks like you're very fond of nominating articles for deletion. Might I suggest a review of the deletion criteria? A cursory glance over your deletion nominations turn up quite a few nominations on notable articles. For example: Doaktown Consolidated High School, Esther Earl, Stew Leonard, Jr., Housing.com, Grupo de Diarios América, TLV1, Smart shoe, Illionaire Records, etc. The list goes on. In the interest of saving other people (and yourself) a lot of time, I think it'd be worth your while to review what makes an article notable. --63.155.40.75 (talk) 23:38, 28 September 2015 (UTC)

Speedy Deletion nomination[edit]

Hello,

I posted an article yesterday, about Fantastic Services, but it was deleted. The reason is said to be promotional language. The idea was not to advertise the page, but to give some info about a company that's been in the news lately. It was deleted just a few hours after publishing which means there wasn't given any chance for fixing any issues with the language. Could the request be reconsidered or can you give some tips about improving the article?

Thank you :) — Preceding unsigned comment added by VanessaFaye (talkcontribs) 08:34, 30 October 2015 (UTC)

Speedy deletion criteria[edit]

Hi Scope creep,

You're still tagging articles for speedy deletion which really aren't speedy deletion candidates. For example, although an article about Helen Santos, a character in a TV series might not be notable enough to keep, and I'd probably !vote delete in an article deletion discussion, it's certainly not a speedy deletion candidate.

Speedy deletion is for cases where there is absolutely no doubt that the article must go ASAP, for example:

  • Articles that don't make any sense (Nonsense, no context, etc.)
  • Articles that are obviously misleading (Really obvious hoaxes, joke pages, etc.)
  • Articles that are plainly, obviously not notable (Completely unremarkable people or things)
  • Articles that break our rules (attack pages, copyright violations, blatant advertising, etc.)

Proposed deletion is for articles that clearly shouldn't be on Wikipedia, but don't meet the strict CSD standard, for example:

  • Unreferenced biographies of living people
  • Unverifiable articles (more subtle hoaxes, crackpot theories, etc.)
  • Non-notable subjects: after looking for sources, it's clear there are none and never will be.

Something like the Helen Santos article probably reaches the level where we should go for WP:AfD instead, because there are reasonable Wikipedians who would strongly argue to keep it, no matter how strongly you or I might feel that it's pointless WP:Cruft. --Slashme (talk) 17:50, 27 July 2016 (UTC)

for example, Carolina Crusher (truck) is not not a person, company, group of people , individual animal, or web content-- A7 does not apply. (and in any case the artile asserts some degree of significance . DGG ( talk ) 07:49, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

License tagging for File:Image of Hans Rohrbach.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Image of Hans Rohrbach.jpg. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information.

To add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia. For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 17:05, 29 July 2016 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:Image of Hans Rohrbach.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Image of Hans Rohrbach.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file has agreed to release it under the given license.

If you are the copyright holder for this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. You may wish to read Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Disputed non-free use rationale for File:Dr Walter Fricke.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Dr Walter Fricke.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the file description page and adding or clarifying the reason why the file qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your file is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you. AntiCompositeNumber (Leave a message) 19:53, 27 August 2016 (UTC)

Verifiable Sources[edit]

Hi Scope Creep

Youre too fast for me! Most of these you are referring to are stubs, which now give people a place and a opportunity to participate. Some of my older stubs have matured and numerous people have contributed, so please be patient. The problem with this kind of military history is that a lot of it is however oral in nature. How do you address that? Another issue is that the vast amount of archived military history pre 1994 was on paper and the current government has not made much effort in keeping it maintained. These documents were however handed over to the National Military Museum in Saxonwold Johannesburg, so that is a big plus. It will very interesting to understanding how these documents can be used for in line citations.

Georg Jacob Vollweiler[edit]

Thanks for the message about Georg Jacob Vollweiler. Why did I write that he is noted as a teacher: I discovered him while writing an article about Lindsay Sloper, who was taught by him; he also taught Ferdinand Hiller and Aloys Schmitt, who were well known in their day – so it was worth mentioning in the summary that he was a noted teacher. While working on the article I was surprised to find that he worked in London for a period, managing a branch of a printing company, so it was an interesting article to write. I have not come across any pictures of Vollweiler. Regards, AtticTapestry (talk) 07:16, 12 September 2016 (UTC)
