post once[edit]

Please note that we create an article once only. If alternative titles are considered necessary, we use #redirect.

Excessive emboldening as in this state is almost as bad using all capitals. -- RHaworth 16:08, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

Limerick city (including extended boundary)[edit]

I have nominated Limerick city (including extended boundary) for deletion; before creating an article it is worth considering if the article name is common enough for someone to find it or will they type something simplier, see Wikipedia:Naming conventions (common names). Their are already two comprehensive articles on Limerick - re City of Limerick and County Limerick and editing should be confined to these. Thanks Djegan 21:05, 29 June 2006 (UTC)

Notability of Gay Dublin[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Gay Dublin requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article appears to be about a real person, organization (band, club, company, etc.), 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 an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable. If this is the first page that you have created, then you should read the guide to writing your first article.

If you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's 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 confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia 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. Mh29255 (talk) 16:05, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

Raidió X[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

The article Raidió X has been speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This was done because the article seemed to be about a real person, organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content, but it did 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 indicate the notability of the subject may be deleted at any time. If you can indicate why the subject is really notable, you are free to re-create the article, making sure to cite any verifiable sources.

Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, and for specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for musicians, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. NawlinWiki (talk) 10:37, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

Metropolitan areas in Ireland[edit]

Nuvola apps important yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Metropolitan areas in Ireland, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. 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. 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. If you agree with the deletion of the article, and you are the only person who has made substantial edits to the page, please add {{db-author}} to the top of Metropolitan areas in Ireland.

Your username[edit]

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia!

I hope not to seem unfriendly or make you feel unwelcome, but I noticed your username, and I am concerned that it might not meet Wikipedia's username policy for the following reason: Taoiseach is the title of the head of the government of Ireland, and use that title as a username apperars to breach WP:USERNAME#Inappropriate_username, which covers "Misleading usernames: imply misleading things about the contributor. For example, misleading points of fact, an impression of undue authority, or the suggestion that the account is operated by a group, project or collective rather than one individual".. After you look over that policy, could we discuss that concern here?

I'd appreciate learning your own views, for instance your reasons for wanting this particular name, and what alternative username you might accept that avoids raising this concern.

You have several options freely available to you:

Thank you. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 14:24, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

List of Celtic language third level courses[edit]

Wikipedia is not an indiscriminate collection of information, so random lists of items with no encyclopedic content are not acceptable as articles.

Proposed deletion of List of Celtic language third level courses[edit]

Category hierarchy[edit]

Hi. A quick note on categories. Categories tend to be largely hierarchical. This means that (for example) the "TV programs" category may have a sub-category called "Irish TV programs". If "The Late Late Show" is a member of "TV programs in Ireland", then there is no real need to also add it to "TV programs". Because it is ALREADY a member by virtue of inheritance from the parent category. Or, to put it in another way, this is perfectly fine:

 Category:TV Programs
   -> Category:TV Programs in the English language
      -> The Late Late Show
   -> Category:TV Programs in Ireland
      -> The Late Late Show

But this is somewhat redundant:

 Category:TV Programs
   -> The Late Late Show
   -> Category:TV Programs in the English language
      -> The Late Late Show
   -> Category:TV Programs in Ireland
      -> The Late Late Show

I point this out because you recently added certain programs to several categories. When they were already members of the relevant child-categories. This isn't really necessary, and can lead to over-categorisation. Guliolopez (talk) 14:51, 24 October 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Nuac.gif)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Nuac.gif. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 05:16, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:Cula-logo.gif[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Cula-logo.gif. The image has been identified as not specifying the copyright status of the image, which is required by Wikipedia's policy on images. If you don't indicate the copyright status of the image on the image's description page, using an appropriate copyright tag, it may be deleted some time in the next seven days. If you have uploaded other images, please verify that you have provided copyright information for them as well.

Just throwing a bunch of links on the page [1] is not very helpful to improving the article, although it may help show that the subject of the article is notable. The following links may help you to turn this into a real article.

I have nominated List of Irish counties by percentage of people with Irish language ability, an article that you created, for deletion. I do not think that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of Irish counties by percentage of people with Irish language ability.

AfD nomination of List of gay and lesbian resource centres in Ireland[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated article is List of gay and lesbian resource centres in Ireland. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also Wikipedia:Notability and "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of gay and lesbian resource centres in Ireland. Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 01:14, 31 January 2010 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Top 40 Oifigiúil na hÉireann[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Top 40 Oifigiúil na hÉireann has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

This article does not meet the general notability guideline.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} 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 {{proposed deletion/dated}} 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. Wcheck (talk) 18:17, 3 January 2011 (UTC)

Referencing[edit]

  • place this immediately after the text that's being referenced rather than elsewhere in the article.

Hi,
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 substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material.

Proposed deletion of National Technology Park[edit]

Hello, Taoiseach. I wanted to let you know that I’m proposing an article that you started, National Technology Park, for deletion because I don't think it meets our criteria for inclusion. If you don't want the article deleted:

  1. edit the page
  2. remove the text that looks like this: {{proposed deletion/dated...}}
  3. save the page

Speedy deletion nomination of Westpark Shannon[edit]

Hello Taoiseach,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Westpark Shannon for deletion, because the article doesn't clearly say why the subject is important enough to be included in an encyclopedia.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

Speedy deletion nomination of Opera Lane[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Opera Lane requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about an organization or company, but it does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator. DGG ( talk ) 06:15, 14 December 2015 (UTC)

Prose/context[edit]

Hiya. Me again. I notice that you read and removed my previous comment on the same topic, but I was wondering if you'd had a chance to think about my suggestion? Of using prose over lists and adding context/relevance instead of just listing stuff? I ask because I notice that you've added more "list data" to the Economy of Ireland article - and I wonder if it's well placed. (I am not certain that a typical reader will gather from the "table" what relevance or selection criteria are applied to the list of "business parks"?) I'd welcome your thoughts - before I take my own action to perhaps improve those additions (relative to the relevant guidelines) Guliolopez (talk) 16:53, 3 January 2016 (UTC)

Following-up on the above, I have opened a thread on here, that may be of interest. Guliolopez (talk) 00:38, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

Wikipedia and copyright[edit]

Control copyright icon Hello Taoiseach, and welcome to Wikipedia. Your addition to Economy of the Republic of Ireland has had to be removed, as it appears to have added copyrighted material without permission from the copyright holder. While we appreciate your contributing to Wikipedia, there are certain things you must keep in mind about using information from your sources to avoid copyright or plagiarism issues here.

  • You can only copy/translate a small amount of a source, and you must mark what you take as a direct quotation with double quotation marks (") and a cited source. You can read about this at Wikipedia:Non-free content in the sections on "text". See also Help:Referencing for beginners, for how to cite sources here.
  • Aside from limited quotation, you must put all information in your own words and structure, in proper paraphrase. Following the source's words too closely can create copyright problems, so it is not permitted here; see Wikipedia:Close paraphrasing. (There is a college-level introduction to paraphrase, with examples, hosted by the Online Writing Lab of Purdue.) Even when using your own words, you are still, however, asked to cite your sources to verify information and to demonstrate that the content is not original research.
  • Our primary policy on using copyrighted content is Wikipedia:Copyrights. You may also want to review Wikipedia:Copy-paste.
  • If you own the copyright to the source you want to copy or are a designated agent, you may be able to license that text so that we can publish it here. However, there are steps that must be taken to verify that license before you do. See Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials.
  • In very rare cases (that is, for sources that are public domain or compatibly licensed), it may be possible to include greater portions of a source text. However, please seek help at the help desk before adding such content to the article. 99.9% of sources may not be added in this way, so it is necessary to seek confirmation first. If you do confirm that a source is public domain or compatibly licensed, you will still need to provide full attribution; see Wikipedia:Plagiarism for the steps you need to follow.
  • Also note that Wikipedia articles may not be copied or translated without attribution. If you want to copy or translate from another Wikipedia project or article, you can, but please follow the steps in Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia.

It's very important that contributors understand and follow these practices, as policy requires that people who persistently do not must be blocked from editing. If you have any questions about this, you are welcome to leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. — Diannaa 🍁 (talk) 23:26, 4 January 2016 (UTC)

Nomination of List of cultural venues in Ireland for deletion[edit]

The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Murry1975 (talk) 13:00, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

Pointers[edit]

Do not edit archives, and do not edit logged out. To answer your question look at IBMs entry,Silicon docks 3000 yet "workforce of over 3,000 employees working across a broad range of businesses and locations including: IBM Ireland, which has nationwide responsibilities for delivering sales, marketing and services across the Irish market; the company's Technology Campus in Mulhuddart", my emphasis, but you see Mulhuddart aint in the city centre, so with an accurate source for EACH entry the list is not a benefit to the article. Similar to other lists you have added in the past. Murry1975 (talk) 22:09, 2 April 2016 (UTC)

Yeah sure, but I was just adding it to Silicon Docks because I saw the same list on a very similar Israeli wikipage Silicon Wadi. 23:21, 2 April 2016‎ Taoiseach (talk | contribs)‎
Do not add something that is incorrect and be surprised when it is challenged or removed. Murry1975 (talk) 22:32, 2 April 2016 (UTC)
