Welcome![edit]

Hello, Xblkx, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. If you are stuck, and looking for help, please come to the Wikipedia Boot Camp, where experienced Wikipedians can answer any queries you have! Or, you can just type {{helpme}} on your user page, and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions.

Here are a few more good links to help you get started:

Your articles Halestorm and Lzzy Hale do not assert notability/importance; please do so to prevent them from being deleted.

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date. If you have any questions, check out Wikipedia:Where to ask a question or ask me on my talk page. Again, welcome!  Quarl (talk) 2006-01-30 11:54Z

Thanks for addressing the notability issue. As to whether anyone has "verified" notability - it's a pretty informal process, usually the article speaks for itself, and you have done a good job here. I've removed the {{notability}} tag. If there is enough to say about Lzzy Hale other than her relationship with the band then you could write about it in a separate article, otherwise I would just write it in Halestorm.

Replaceable fair use Image:Halestorm_1.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:Halestorm_1.jpg. I notice the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed image could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this image is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the image description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original Replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace the fair use image by finding a freely licensed image of its subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or a similar) image under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that fair use images which could be replaced by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted 7 days after this notification, per our Fair Use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Rettetast 15:47, 27 July 2007 (UTC)


Marty Munsch[edit]

Discussions about the article have been MOVED from this page to the subpage as suggested by SQGibbon:

/Marty_Munsch

Please edit there.

Good luck with that. I had a go a year or so ago but gave up. Is it really worth the effort? Wwwhatsup (talk) 01:40, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

Unreferenced BLPs[edit]

Information.svg Hello Xblkx! Thank you for your contributions. I am a bot alerting you that 1 of the articles that you created is an Unreferenced Biography of a Living Person. Please note that all biographies of living persons must be sourced. If you were to add reliable, secondary sources to this article, it would greatly help us with the current 2,890 article backlog. Once the article is adequately referenced, please remove the {{unreferencedBLP}} tag. Here is the article:

  1. Marcus Reichert - Find sources: "Marcus Reichert" – news · newspapers · books · scholar · HighBeam · JSTOR · free images · free news sources · The Wikipedia Library · NYT · WP reference

Thanks!--DASHBot (talk) 19:54, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Lzzy Hale[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Lzzy Hale has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

No notability established. Fails WP:MUSICBIO.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{dated prod}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Nymf hideliho! 00:15, 13 March 2010 (UTC)

I would like to propose that a revert to a redirect to Halestorm made four years ago by User:Enochlau be reinstated, rather than deletion of the Lzzy Hale article entirely. I provided somewhat more detail on Talk:Lzzy Hale Xblkx (talk) 09:52, 13 March 2010 (UTC)

Weird recent edit bug?[edit]

Hey there. The reason you were unable to make that edit is that the reference was coming from a template and was not on the page itself. If you look at the source code for that article you'll see something that looks like {{Template:Critical mass}}. That template can be used in any article and will recreate that same table. Basically we don't have to recreate that table every time we want it in an article, we just put in that template. If you type in "Template:Critical mass" into the Wikipedia search bar it will take you to the actual template article. From there you can make the edit and correct the typo. I already did this.

References work in a similar manner. You put the text of the reference where it actually occurs in the article (right after whatever claim you're providing a source for) and then Wikipedia automatically puts that text in the reference section (as long as someone has added a reference section). This means we cannot edit the reference section directly if we want to make a change to a source but must find where the source was first used and make the change there. Hope this helps and thanks for pointing out the typo. SQGibbon (talk) 12:31, 30 May 2012 (UTC)
