July 2009[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, your addition of one or more external links to the page When the Levee Breaks has been reverted.
Your edit here was reverted by an automated bot that attempts to remove unwanted links and spam from Wikipedia. The external link you added or changed is on my list of links to remove and probably shouldn't be included in Wikipedia. The external links I reverted were matching the following regex rule(s): \byoutube\.com (links: If the external link you inserted or changed was to a media file (e.g. a sound or video file) on an external server, then note that linking to such files may be subject to Wikipedia's copyright policy and therefore probably should not be linked to. Please consider using our upload facility to upload a suitable media file. Video links are also strongly deprecated by our guidelines for external links, partly because they're useless to people with slow internet connections.
If you were trying to insert an external link that does comply with our policies and guidelines, then please accept my creator's apologies and feel free to undo the bot's revert. However, if the link does not comply with our policies and guidelines, but your edit included other changes to the article, feel free to make those changes again without re-adding the link. Please read Wikipedia's external links guideline for more information, and consult my list of frequently-reverted sites. For more information about me, see my FAQ page. Thanks! --XLinkBot (talk) 13:52, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

Sinai (band)[edit]

Hi Garrett, there's been a request to protect the above because you've been adding material from unreliable (self-published) sources. Please read our sourcing policy, WP:V, and our policy on edits about living people, WP:BLP. The way to proceed is to discuss the issue calmly on the talk page, rather than continuing to revert. Many thanks, SlimVirgin talk|contribs 20:15, 23 January 2011 (UTC)


I find this sad, comical, and irritating that admins and regular users are allowing a band's management and promotion company to dictate what can be posted on their wiki page to use it as a promotional tool, rather than the page being a factually accurate page with true historical information. I don't ever edit this site, but when i saw this going on i felt it was needed that the truth, which is in no way damaging or negative, be properly notated on the band's page. I am only trying to defend the truth here, and i don't understand why i am the only person doing this when the purpose of this entire website is for people to work together the ensure the truth is known and accessible to everyone.

The true history, which even the management company reps will not deny, is the following:

The band's (Sinai) formation and announcement in August 2010 originally included Tyler Gurwicz as lead singer,[1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8] though on October 10th, 2010, Perri announced that former Silvertide bandmate Walt Lafty had replaced Gurwicz as lead vocalist, who left to persue other interests. --Garrettmarvel (talk) 14:15, 25 January 2011 (UTC)


Yes, I too find it upsetting that the band's management has systematically taken down past reliable sources about Tyler Gurwicz. However, as it is, they are management, I don't want to get into any legal trouble with them or anything.

Here's the way I see it: it's very hard for a rock band to make it these days. I imagine they'll release a record, it probably won't sell very well, they'll get dropped fromt their management, and then they won't care about the page anymore, and then the truth can be re-added, provided there are still sources left.

If you do continue to persue this, continue to stress that management editing the article is definitely a WP:COI problem. Sergecross73 msg me 17:11, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

Sinai COI[edit]

i did report the COI the other day, though i don't know if or how or when something might be done. i agree the whole thing is stupid, but whatever - this certainly is not my full time job, but someone or admins or somehow this should not be allowed to happen... i know i'm not the person to do it, but i thought that was the point of wikipedia. i got a notice that there was a request to protect the page from ME, which is laughable, regardless of if my comments attached to my edits were mildly heated the other day. --Garrettmarvel (talk) 22:03, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

Take a look at the page and discussion page. "SV" edited the page and while she(?) re-wrote some things, she allowed the as a source, and kept the part about Tyler. I guess we'll have to see how long that sticks... Sergecross73 msg me 23:13, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Zeta Interactive[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 Zeta Interactive, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become an encyclopedia article. Please read the guidelines on spam and Wikipedia:FAQ/Business for more information.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion," which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate). Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page 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 page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. KeeperOfTheInformation (talk) 21:37, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

The page Zeta Interactive has been speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page appeared to be blatant advertising which only promotes something, and which is unlikely to be suitable for an article (or at best would need a fundamental rewrite). Wikipedia is not a medium for promotion of anything, whether a company, product, group, service, person, religious or political belief, or anything else. Please read the general criteria for speedy deletion, particularly item G11, as well as the guidelines on spam. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this.
