Speedy deletion of Marilyn Stokstad[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Marilyn Stokstad 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 a person or group of people, 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, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for biographies.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the 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 would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you. --/Mendaliv//Δ's/ 03:43, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

RE: New user questions[edit]

Ok, 2 things. To put a web reference, i.e referencing a URL, you put (directly after whatever you're referencing) <ref>insert URL here</ref>. Then at the bottom of the page put a "references" header followed by {{Reflist}}. That ensures the references are collected at the bottom of the page.

For books, subject-specific journals and so on, go to Wikipedia:Citation templates. They have a full list of citation templates; you basically just fill it out and stick it at the bottom of the page (again, in a "references" or "sources" box).

Any further questions, just let me know. thanks! Ironholds (talk) 10:08, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Marilyn Stokstad[edit]

Ambox warning orange.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Marilyn Stokstad, 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.

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. Do you want to opt out of receiving this notice? --/Mendaliv//Δ's/ 19:54, 19 June 2008 (UTC)
