Adam Bryniarski[edit]

Hello Sportsfan5000,

It seems to me that an article you worked on, Adam Bryniarski, may be copied from http://uk.ask.com/wiki/Adam_Windsor. It's entirely possible that I made a mistake, but I wanted to let you know because Wikipedia is strict about copying from other sites.

It's important that you edit the article and rewrite it in your own words, unless you're absolutely certain nothing in it is copied. If you're not sure how to fix the problem or have any questions, there are people at the help desk who are happy to assist you.

Thank you for helping build a free encyclopedia! CorenSearchBot (talk) 19:07, 23 January 2012 (UTC)

Regarding your message on my talkpage[edit]

Hi,

I don't really know very much about professional wrestling. An expert on wikipedia is User talk:Wrestlinglover, and you can ask him questions on his talk page. His articles are good models to follow. Here's an example of an article he wrote on an individual wrestler: Gail Kim. Some of his other articles are Turning Point (2008) and Lockdown (2008) as well as many, many others. They have good links to specialized wrestling terms (American - I don't know if they are different for British wrestling). There's also Wikipedia:WikiProject Professional wrestling which you can join and you can ask questions on Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Professional wrestling.

Good luck,

  • Here is the projects Style guide: Wikipedia:WikiProject Professional wrestling/Style guide. MathewTownsend (talk) 23:07, 3 February 2012 (UTC)
    • Damn Matthew, I must have left an impression on you. I co-wrote Gail Kim and Christian (wrestler) just to be clear. Happily I just updated Lockdown as well. Old one was utter shit. The funny thing is about that article, I found it this afternoon while looking up English wrestlers and the subpage had the category in it. Quite odd I do believe that now I'm talking about it. I noticed several several several things that needed to be corrected. If I were you, I'd save the information and keep it in a subpage for now. It needs more reliable sources. You should familiarize yourself with the WP:MOS. The Style guide may help a bit, but its out of date. Wikipedia can't source itself. Trivia is best not used. The article is about the person, not the character they play, just remember that. Remember to abide by WP:Jargon, WP:IN-U, WP:Fiction, etc.--WillC 08:31, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

ok it's been moved to main space[edit]

Hi,

I moved the article into main space Adam Windsor. But you have a lot of fixing up to do. I advise you to get help from the sources I suggested. It's very demanding to edit an article here, very hard with many rules and much to learn!

Good luck.

Reply[edit]

Look, I appreciate you extending an olive branch in good faith. But realistically, I have to go by our policies on general notability guidelines and reliable sourcing. Before nominating the Adam Windsor article for deletion, I did a fair bit of checking to see if I could find any reliable sources that could be used to prove that the article's claims are accurate. But I came up blank - I couldn't find a thing. I take no pleasure in the deletion of wrestling-related articles but standards have to be met, especially as they relate to living people.
