Promotion[edit]

Please do not use Wikipedia to promote your products, as you did at LED Tube lights, using an ad for a product as a "reference". WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 14:59, 29 July 2013 (UTC)

July 2013[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, your addition of one or more external links to the page LED Tube lights has been reverted.
Your edit here to LED Tube lights was reverted by an automated bot that attempts to remove links which are discouraged per our external links guideline. The external link(s) you added or changed (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=1TqONKjQwhE) is/are on my list of links to remove and probably shouldn't be included in Wikipedia. If the external link you inserted or changed was to a media file (e.g. a sound or video file) on an external server, then note that linking to such files may be subject to Wikipedia's copyright policy, as well as other parts of our external links guideline. If the information you linked to is indeed in violation of copyright, then such information should not be linked to. Please consider using our upload facility to upload a suitable media file, or consider linking to the original.
If you were trying to insert an external link that does comply with our policies and guidelines, then please accept my creator's apologies and feel free to undo the bot's revert. However, if the link does not comply with our policies and guidelines, but your edit included other, constructive, changes to the article, feel free to make those changes again without re-adding the link. Please read Wikipedia's external links guideline for more information, and consult my list of frequently-reverted sites. For more information about me, see my FAQ page. Thanks! --XLinkBot (talk) 15:02, 29 July 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of LED Tube lights[edit]

You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles. See the Article Wizard.
Thank you.

A tag has been placed on LED Tube lights, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising that only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become an acceptable page. Please read the general criteria for speedy deletion, particularly item G11, as well as the guidelines on spam.

If you can indicate why the subject of this page is not blatant advertising, Speedy delete contest button.svg. Clicking that button will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. You are welcome to edit the page to fix this problem, but please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. As well as removing promotional phrasing, it helps to add factual encyclopaedic information to the page, and add citations from independent reliable sources to ensure that the page will be verifiable. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Steve Quinn (talk) 16:13, 29 July 2013 (UTC)

Copyright problem: LED Tube lights[edit]

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia! We welcome and appreciate your contributions, such as LED Tube lights, but we regretfully cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from either web sites or printed material. This article appears to contain material copied from http://assets.sylvania.com/assets/Documents/LED219.2e6c309f-904a-4ad9-b6c8-759a245b2aab.pdf, and therefore to constitute a violation of Wikipedia's copyright policies. The copyrighted text has been or will soon be deleted. While we appreciate contributions, we must require all contributors to understand and comply with our copyright policy. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously, and persistent violators are liable to be blocked from editing.

If you believe that the article is not a copyright violation, or if you have permission from the copyright holder to release the content freely under license allowed by Wikipedia, then you should do one of the following:

It may also be necessary for the text be modified to have an encyclopedic tone and to follow Wikipedia article layout. For more information on Wikipedia's policies, see Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

If you would like to begin working on a new version of the article you may do so at this temporary page. Leave a note at Talk:LED Tube lights saying you have done so and an administrator will move the new article into place once the issue is resolved. Thank you, and please feel welcome to continue contributing to Wikipedia. Happy editing! Steve Quinn (talk) 16:43, 29 July 2013 (UTC)

Response to rewrite[edit]

Thanks for the rewrite. Sorry that I didn't contact you earlier. I didn't reply because, at this point, an Adminstrator takes over responsibility for the article. Rewriting the article is what the adminstrator is looking for before deciding to keep the article on Wikipedia, and this is what you have done.

Also, if I remember correctly there is something like a seven day period before the mainspace for the article opens up again, with a thumbs up from the Admin. If there was no rewrite then an Admin would probably delete the article. So, let me see if I can find a link that you can use to ask about what is happening. In any case, there is nothing to be concerned about. The copy-vio is obviously a good faith error.

However, there is one other thing to look at. I notice that the sources that you are using for the article will be considered unaccaptable per the reliable sources policy on Wikipedia. The sources you have are both promotional and primary (sources). It appears these sources are the manufacturers own web pages. I am sorry to say that this will not work on Wikipedia. These sources actually tell us at Wikipedia that this is not a notable topic, and it might also tell us that this article is promoting the subjects covered. So, it is best to change each of your sources to something acceptable, and maybe add one or two more.

Well, let me know if you have further questions. Regards and good luck ---- Steve Quinn (talk) 22:07, 31 July 2013 (UTC)

Request resolution[edit]

Hello. Regarding the article you created entitled LED Tube lights, I didn't know it would take this long to resolve. If you want to find out what's going on I think it would be OK to ask at this forum: WP:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents. Just open a new thread with a title. Say it has been 11 or 12 days, and you have not heard anything. Also state that you have created a new version of the article in the temp folder. I suggest asking when this will be resolved. --- Steve Quinn (talk) 13:48, 9 August 2013 (UTC)
