Keswick Christian School response[edit]

The advertising tag has been removed. There is a style for Wikipedia articles that we should all follow. See Wikipedia:Manual of Style. For example, the first sentence of an article should be something like "Keswick Christian School is a school located in ...." There is also a specific style for articles about schools. See, for example, McQuaid Jesuit High School which generally follows that style. Feel free to borrow the "Infobox_University" from that article to put in your article, modifying as needed, of course. Make sure you copy everything between the open and close double braces. The Infobox is easier to use than the complex table you created, and it provides some standardization among articles, which makes it easier for everyone to read and understand. Hint: Use the "Show preview" button to check out your changes and then "Save page" only when you're satisfied everything is okay; that uses less space on the Wikipedia servers and produces a shorter history record. Good luck with your articles. Truthanado 01:21, 6 April 2007 (UTC)

See my response to your question on my "talk" page Truthanado 01:50, 6 April 2007 (UTC)

Congratulations. Keswick Christian School is turning into a very nice, well-written article. A couple of suggestions, if I may, based primarily on the Wikipedia:Manual of Style:

  • By convention, section headings only capitalize the first word, except for proper names. You might want to change that in your article. Example: "Name change and growth". I know it's not intuitively obvious to do it that way, and many publications do it differently, but that is the Wikipedia standard.
  • The Notables section is typically called "Notable alumni" or "Noted alumni" in similar articles, and the list of alumni that follows is typically in alphabetical order as a bulleted list. It's easier and more consistent to start each item in the list with an asterisk "*" than to have to remember to put the HTML carriage-return-line-feed "<br>" at the end of each line.
  • Please remember to spell check your edits. I'm a good speller, but a horrible typist, and I often make mistakes that I have to find before saving my edits. In Firefox browser (which I use), every mis-spelled or unrecognized word has a a red line under it. Sure, many of the words are proper names, but it's a good way to locate typing and spelling errors. Example: Headquatered. Truthanado 03:41, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

Re: Halo (Christian rock band)[edit]

Hi there, thanks for your message to me. I'm actually a Stephen, not a Ryan; you're not the first person to make that mistake, I think my talk page needs reorganizing!

I just glanced at the Halo article; good work on the references.

Happy Wiki-ing,

Non-standard discography infoboxes[edit]

Regarding Rick Cua, I'm thoroughly baffled why it remains in that category.--Fuhghettaboutit 16:45, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

I figured it out by reading more carefully. The template notes: "if you do not fill the Type field with one of the predefined keywords (or if you make a typo), the article will be automatically added to Category:Non-standard discography infoboxes so as to be able to track and fix errors." In the type fields you had listed "Studio". The quotation marks and uppercase esses were the culprit.--Fuhghettaboutit 17:59, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

Removal of category from your userpage[edit]

Hi. In enacting consensus from User categories for discussion, I have removed the category Category:Wikipedians interested in books from your userpage. It was determined in that deletion debate that this category should be depopulated of individuals, but kept as a parent category. If you wish to display a category reflecting your interest in books, please consider one of the specific sub-categories under its umbrella. Thanks, and please excuse the necessary editing of your user page! ----Moonriddengirl (talk) 16:15, 23 February 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Lexrex beattheheat.JPG)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Lexrex beattheheat.JPG. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 12:27, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

Article deletion[edit]

Proposed deletion of Tempest (Christian rock band)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Tempest (Christian rock band), suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

Article about a band without assertion of notability

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.

Speedy deletion nomination of Glasshouse Records[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Glasshouse Records 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 an organization or company, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles 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 organizations and companies. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

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 - if no such tag exists then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hangon tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, 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. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you.
