A tag has been placed on TITSA, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article seems to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in Wikipedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not assert notability may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, and if you can indicate why the subject of this article is notable, you may contest the tagging. To do this, add {{hangon}} on the top of the page (below the existing db tag) and leave a note on the article's talk page explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm its subject's notability under the guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Steve (Stephen) talk 05:42, 11 April 2007 (UTC)


A tag has been placed on TITSA, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article seems to be blatant advertising which only promotes a company, product, group or service and which would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become an encyclopedia article. Please read the general criteria for speedy deletion, particularly item 11, as well as the guidelines on spam.

If you can indicate why the subject of this article is not blatant advertising, you may contest the tagging. To do this, please add {{hangon}} on the top of the page and leave a note on the article's talk page explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would help make it encyclopedic, as well as adding any citations from reliable sources to ensure that the article will be verifiable. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Greatestrowerever 15:59, 11 April 2007 (UTC)

Please sign your posts on talk pages[edit]

Please sign your name on talk pages. There are two ways to sign your posts:

  1. At the end of your comments, simply type four tildes (~), like this: ~~~~
  2. Click the signature icon (Button sig.png) in the edit toolbar to add the four tildes.

Your signature will appear after you have saved the changes. Thanks. --Seattle Skier (talk) 18:05, 14 April 2007

ok will do but cant find it on my (spanish) keyboard

Moving pages[edit]

Please do not simply switch the redirects on a page to "move" it; use the page move tool to preserve the edit history. Since the Los Rodeos Airport article has been moved back and forth several times, it does not qualify as uncontroversial, so please add {{moveto|new page name}} to the top of the article's talk page and determine the general sentiment towards the move. DB (talk) 02:08, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

I didn't "change it back for tech reasons". Since the page has been redirected back and forth several times, the move does not qualify as uncontroversial, which means you need consensus before making the move. Since the page was improperly moved in the first place, using redirects instead of the move feature (done by you), it will actually have to be merged. So, place the tag {{merge|Tenerife North Airport}} at the top of the Los Rodeos Airport article. On the Los Rodeos talk page, add your explanation for the merge. Also, create a new section using the == on the talk page so people can actually find what you wrote. After 5 days if there are no objections, then you can merge the pages into the Tenerife North Airport article. Please do not simply create the redirect again without consensus, as it will be reverted. DB (talk) 01:02, 18 April 2007 (UTC)

World Highest Bus Stop[edit]

I have added a "{{prod}}" template to the article World Highest Bus Stop, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but I don't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and I've explained why in the deletion notice (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may contest 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. Also, please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. 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. There are plenty of higher bus stops in Peru / Chile, or any other mountainous region - Tiswas(t/c) 09:38, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

  • All of the bus stops in La Paz Bolivia are more than 1000m higher than the 2356M of the cable car station on Teide. Elevation of the main square in La Paz is 3828m. There are other higher bus stops in Bolivia. --Bejnar 03:46, 18 April 2007 (UTC)

Cabildo Canaries[edit]

Your continued edits and enthusiasm are laudable, but please take note of the manual of style, particularly with regards links and references. Use the preview button to prevent unnecessary remedial edits later - Tiswas(t/c) 19:30, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

  • I have restored the Cabildo (council), eliminating most of the modern Canary Island material and putting a link into your new article, Cabildo Canaries. The old article is important for historical reasons, and a number of other articles link there for that very purpose. --Bejnar 23:33, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

Make links, not destroy links[edit]

There is a key concept in Wikipedia which is to provide users with the ability to instantly (at a moments click) to access other information instead of what they are currently reading. (This concept came from Vannevar Bush.) Case in point, the article Cabildo (council). The template main there was intended to lead people to the article that you crafted on the modern cabildos of the Canary Islands. When you remove that opportunity for readers to find the other article you limit and hinder part of the way that the Wikipedia is intended to function. The other thing to think about is that the articles in the Wikipedia are to some extent hierarchical. There are more general articles such as ones about a mountain range, say the Andes, and more specific ones about the various peaks in that range, for example Mount Chimborazo. In the case at issue, Cabildo (council) is a more general article, and the article Cabildo Canaries is more specific. It is entirely appropriate for the general to refer to the specific and vica versa. Also, when you find that a number of articles link to another, but they link for a reason that is not your reason for the article's existence, you should try to consider what point of view you might be not seeing. It might be true, like it was in this case that the two points of view in the article might require that they become two articles, rather than one, but you should not eliminate one whole concept and all of the links to it, as you did with your edits to Cabildo (council). There was a reason for those links, just as there is a reason for the more general article Cabildo (council) to link to Cabildo Canaries. Cabildo (council) is not a replacement for Cabildo Canaries, or a duplicate, just like the article on Colombia is not a replacement for, nor a duplicate of the article History of Colombia. If you do not understand what I am saying, please let me know. --Bejnar 23:13, 18 April 2007 (UTC) User talk:Bejnar

Please be careful making amendments - you deleted a reference which made the article look bad. I spent a lot of time updating and adding the reference. Thanks. Ardfern 10:39, 28 May 2007 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
