Image source problem with Image:ChristopherJeburk.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading Image:ChristopherJeburk.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 00:20, 20 April 2008 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Polly (Parrot) 00:20, 20 April 2008 (UTC)

Notability of Wanakee[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Wanakee requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article, which appears to be about a real person, organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content, 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 article (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. kelapstick (talk) 05:42, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

Removal of Speedy Tags[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. It might not have been your intention, but you removed a speedy deletion tag from a page you have created yourself. If you do not believe the page should be deleted, you can place a {{hangon}} tag on the page, under the existing speedy deletion tag (please do not remove the speedy deletion tag), and make your case on the page's talk page. Administrators will look at your reasoning before deciding what to do with the page. Thank you.

I restored the Speedy tag and placed the above message because it had been deleted. I didn't do it because I don't want the article. There is a process to follow. An administrator will look at your reasoning on the talk page before deciding what to do with the page. Beeswaxcandle (talk) 07:00, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

Okay, sorry. So help me, if you were the admin, what would you like to see to keep it from being speedied away. At least give me some time (lack of notability can be voted on if sufficient info not given, something other than the speedy) Tippytim304 (talk) 07:02, 18 December 2008 (UTC)
The main thing the admin will be looking for is reliable sources. This means independent third party references to the subject. You have asserted notability - now you have to prove it. It might be that the product she has created is of greater notability. If that is the case, then you should write an article on it and mention her in it. By the way, voting only happens on Wikipedia in very rare circumstances (like selecting arbitrators). What we look for is a consensus of opinion. Beeswaxcandle (talk) 07:13, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

Notability of people[edit]

Hi Tippytim304. I want to make sure that you are fully understanding the general notability guidelines, and the guidelines for notability of people that we have here.

General notability[edit]

In a nutshell, if a topic has received significant coverage in reliable sources that are independent of the subject, it is presumed (but is not guaranteed) to satisfy the notability guidelines for inclusion as a stand-alone article in Wikipedia.

  • Significant coverage means that sources address the subject directly in detail, and no original research is needed to extract the content.
  • Reliable source means a reliable, third-party, published source with a reputation for fact-checking and accuracy.
  • Independent of the subject excludes works produced by those affiliated with the subject including (but not limited to): self-publicity, advertising, self-published material by the subject, autobiographies, press releases, etc.


For people in particular (as per WP:BIO): A person is presumed to be notable if he or she has been the subject of published secondary source material which is reliable, intellectually independent, and independent of the subject.

  • If the depth of coverage is not substantial, then multiple independent sources may be needed to prove notability; trivial coverage of a subject by secondary sources may not be sufficient to establish notability.
  • Primary sources may be used to support content in an article, but they do not contribute toward proving the notability of a subject.

Included on WP:BIO there are some "rules of thumb" for articles about different types of people (politicians, diplomats, entertainers etc.) . In Wanakee's case it would be under WP:ENTERTAINER, if the subject does not meet the general notability guidelines but can meet one of the following criteria, they are usually included (but in most caxses they would have passed the general guidelines for people anyway):

Actors, comedians, opinion makers, models, and television personalities:

  • Has had significant roles in multiple notable films, television, stage performances, or other productions.
  • Has a large fan base or a significant "cult" following.
  • Has made unique, prolific or innovative contributions to a field of entertainment.

Having said all of that, not one of the references that you had would be classed by Wikipedia as a reliable source, and keep in mind that is the basic criteria for inclusion of any article, not just about a person, and consequently the article has been deleted again. I strongly urge you not to create the article in the main space again until it is ready with reliable sources which can be used to establish notability, as it will be deleted again and you will probably start to get not-so-nice messages from an administrator. As I said before I created a user sub page for you that you can use to get the article ready, it is right here. I will help you any way I can, including helping find reliable sources if you need me to, and incorporating them into the article. Once again, if you need help, just ask.--kelapstick (talk) 17:50, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

Recreating an article in user space[edit]

If you ask user:Orangemike or user:Sandahl nicely on their talk pages to recreate the article in your user space, you can work on it there. The article will probably need at least two good references to substantial coverage of the subject from an article, book, or other reliable source. Let me know if I can be of any help.
