Proposed deletion of Tikapa, New Zealand[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Tikapa, New Zealand, 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. gadfium 06:55, 2 August 2008 (UTC)

Te Haahi Ratana[edit]

Kia ora Whetu, I have proposed a merge of the information in the new article you wrote this evening with the existing article on Ratana because Wikipedia policy is to have only one article on a particular topic. I would have merged the information myself, but this is not an area of knowledge for me and I wouldn't want to misrepresent Ratana. I was initially going to do a re-direct (as was done with the article The Ratana Established Church of New Zealand), but then realised that some information in the Te Haahi Ratana article would be lost. I recommend that you be bold and move the information across. Beeswaxcandle (talk) 07:18, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Cristina V. Manalo[edit]

You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles. See the Article Wizard.

Thank you.

A tag has been placed on Cristina V. Manalo requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article, which appears to be about a real person, individual animal(s), an 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. Staberinde (talk) 10:31, 25 November 2009 (UTC)

Nomination of Christian Maramatanga Society for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Christian Maramatanga Society is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Christian Maramatanga Society until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on good 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 template from the top of the article. D O N D E groovily Talk to me 02:54, 16 August 2011 (UTC)
