Spainton is suspected. Why do ya think you are BW? GoodDay (talk) 19:35, 6 December 2008 (UTC)
Because since day one certain people have clearly expressed a view that i am some previous editor who has caused trouble using sockpuppets, this nimbley guy seems to be the main one so id just like to be taken off the hit list by some of those people and if checking me against this guy helps then please feel free to do so. BritishWatcher (talk) 19:42, 6 December 2008 (UTC)
Way ahead of you both. Cheers, This flag once was redpropagandadeeds 00:14, 7 December 2008 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Dancing To A Different Beat[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Dancing To A Different Beat, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

no evidence this album exists, but I may have missed something. If it does exist then keep the article, the singer is more than notable. It was supposed to be released "in early 2008" according to some sources.

All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because, even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs)/(e-mail) 03:04, 7 December 2008 (UTC)

Warning[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to vandalize Wikipedia, you will be blocked from editing. You are engaged in a series of edits to Scotland (and one to Wales) which are clearly vandalism and break previously agreed consensus positions. Please STOP. --Snowded TALK 12:20, 7 December 2008 (UTC)

December 2008[edit]

Stop hand nuvola.svg This is the last warning you will receive for your disruptive edits, such as those you made to Lorraine Kelly. If you vandalize Wikipedia again, you will be blocked from editing. Edit warring by re-including image that you (falsely) claim is all your own work, when it clearly shows a GM TV logo in the corner.  DDStretch  (talk) 12:31, 7 December 2008 (UTC)

Sorry you will miss the debate, blocked editors are explictly not welcome to edit Wikipedia, which implicitly includes AFD discussions. The AFD is clearly written to invite re-creation when the song is released and there are reliable sources saying it has been released. You may want to save a copy of the article on your computer for re-creation after the song's release. See you in January. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs)/(e-mail) 14:36, 7 December 2008 (UTC)

Advice for your next album or song article[edit]

When you create an article that is both un-sourced and which a cursory Internet search will turn up nothing, it will trigger the deletion process. In some cases, this will be quick and only tie up a few minute's of an editor's time, such as when WP:SPEEDY applies or when someone WP:PRODs it and the prod is uncontested. However, if the article winds up at AFD it consumes time and energy by several editors, time and energy that could have been used to add new content rather than remove content that doesn't belong or doesn't belong yet.

If you do not want to be viewed as a disruptive editor, please keep this in mind and ask yourself if the article you are writing will survive WP:AFD before creating it.

If you are creating articles about upcoming releases by very well-known artists, they will almost always pass WP:Notability or the special Music notability criteria, but only after they are released or possibly after a firm release date is announced, if the release is within a few weeks. If you are drafting an article in advance, consider using a user sub-page then moving it to the main article space after the album or song is released or after it is announced, providing it will be released in a few weeks.

Do this only for very well-known artists, such as artists with #1 songs or albums, artists with many top-10 songs or albums, or artists who received famous awards like the Grammy. Many artists meet Wikipedia's notability threshold but they are "marginally" notable and their albums or songs have to qualify in their own right, which means the album or song has to be out for a bit before the article will survive the deletion process. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs)/(e-mail) 15:01, 7 December 2008 (UTC)

I got this on my talk page this morning, saying the two articles were speedy-deleted as vandalism, on the grounds that they were not created in good faith. While I don't have enough information to agree or disagree with that assessment, it's an example of how other editors perceive you if you are careless, particularly if you have other editing issues such as being a suspected or confirmed sockpuppet of a banned or blocked user. Please bear that in mind when you resume editing. See the closing-administrator's comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Different Beat and Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Dancing To A Different Beat and learn from them. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs)/(e-mail) 19:40, 7 December 2008 (UTC)


Proposed deletion of McKenzie_(clothing)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article McKenzie_(clothing) has been proposed for deletion. The proposed-deletion notice added to the article should explain why.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} 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 {{dated prod}} 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.
