Time's Up (Interactive Artists)[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia. However, please do not add promotional material to articles or other Wikipedia pages, as you did to Time's Up (Interactive Artists). Advertising and using Wikipedia as a "soapbox" are against Wikipedia policy and not permitted. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about Wikipedia. Thank you.

Hello! Do you have any additional news articles or books that discuss Time's Up? The generic name makes it very difficult to find information to add from reliable sources. I'm concerned that the article as it stands may not meet our notability guidelines and may be deleted if challenged. If it has been discussed in English-language books and newspapers specifically, we may be able to demonstrate notability and relevance. Please list any of them on the talk page. In addition, Wikipedia has rules on conflict of interest which advise against editing in article space if you are closely connected to a subject. Since your name suggests you are, please do not edit the article, but instead add information on the article's talk page, and I will add it if appropriate. I'd like to work with you on salvaging this article if possible. Thanks! Jokestress (talk) 20:04, 11 June 2011 (UTC)

Hi. To confirm: yes, I am involved in Times Up - I consciously did not try to cover this up by choosing some kind of anonymous name. As the organisation is European, the vast majority of the articles about it are in German, French, etc. Several of the articles are in German titled books but in English, especially arts catalogues. From my reading about the "notability" requirements, it is not necessary to have English language references. I have attempted to make the article's tone neutral (unlike a few others that I have edited to take the advertising out of them!) and nonpersonal. We have a whole collection of articles on Time's Up since 1997, unfortunately most are in German. Hmm. "My personal favourite" in or French: (Arte is one of the most important cultural TV stations in Europe),CmC=698802.html or German again: I hope you can help "salvage" the article!
