Notability of C.W. Schultz[edit]

A tag has been placed on C.W. Schultz, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article appears to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content, but it 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 assert the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

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 page (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. Tony Fox (arf!) review? 05:00, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

You must assert the notability of a person in the article, or it will be deleted. He may become notable in the future, but that does not mean he deserves an article now. When he does become notable, and you can find reliable sources to back up that assertion, then you can create his article and it will be kept. Thanks, ugen64 05:42, 19 July 2007 (UTC)
If you are in the process of writing the article, try using a page that will not get deleted (for example User:YevalPro/Sandbox. Then, when the writing is finished, you can move that page to C.W. Schultz. ugen64 06:00, 19 July 2007 (UTC)


A {{prod}} template has been added to the article Yeval, 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 explains why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may contest 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. Also, please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. 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. If you endorse deletion of the article, and you are the only person who has made substantial edits to the page, please tag it with {{db-author}}. Tony Fox (arf!) review? 05:03, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

AfD Nomination: Yeval[edit]

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia! We welcome and appreciate your contributions, but all Wikipedia articles must meet our criteria for inclusion (see What Wikipedia is not and Deletion policy). Since it does not seem that Yeval meets these criteria, an editor has started a discussion about whether this article should be kept or deleted.

Your opinion on whether this article meets the inclusion criteria is welcome. Please contribute to the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Yeval. Don't forget to add four tildes (~~~~) at the end of each of your comments to sign them.

Discussions such as these usually last five days. In the meantime, you are free to edit the content of the article. Please do not remove the "articles for deletion" template (the box at the top). When the discussion has concluded, a neutral third party will consider all comments and decide whether or not to delete the article. -- Tony Fox (arf!) review? 02:33, 20 July 2007 (UTC)


Hey Siff-- Your e-mail did end up with the junk, but I found it and attempted to reply to it… however, it never went out and got stuck as a draft. Have no idea what's going on with my e-mail. I pop into Wikipedia at least once every three days, so if we're talking about doing an article for The Cornfield People, let's just do it here. I took a couple of minutes and tried to flesh a few things out for you. I'll put it in a separate message. Sorry for such a delay. This all might have something to do with my blog and the virus they were trying to plant there back in July 2014. Can't believe I'm still dealing with this. Anyway, let me know what you think.

The Cornfield People[edit]

The Cornfield People (1999) is an independent film produced in Canada. The film focuses on a paranormal journalist researching a secret society that knows the meaning of life and what comes after death. Knowledge of the film was left pretty much underground until 2015, when author C. W. Schultz introduced its existence to a wider audience in A Book About a Film, where such filmmakers as Ridley Scott, Steven Spielberg and Quentin Tarantino[1] took part in the interview process, detailing the film's appeal, inspiration and rarity in the book's copious footnotes.

While the film has been screened back in 2001[2], no home release is currently available as of this writing. It was cited among the most sought-after lost films by the online magazine Film Threat.[3]

Several internet sites have attempted to debunk The Cornfield People as a hoax, owing to its extreme scarcity and difficulty to keep production stills and any other imagery on the web. Kirkus Reviews writes that its the cultural impact is, "not persuasive enough to support all the marginalia", and says that even Schultz "acknowledges that many people believe it to be an urban legend."[4] Reviews of The Cornfield People from Horror News Net (daughter company of Variety) and Game Universe (daughter company of The Village Voice) have also been uncovered,[5] along with a newspaper advertisement for its Seattle theatrical run.[6]

Real quick[edit]

Did this real quick for ya since I'm leaving town on business for a few days. This is what I suggest. I know there's a lot more to say about the subject, but let's just start it off as a simple stub. Before posting, make sure to change anything with "===" to "==". Another suggestion is to sit on it for a while before creating the article. While we're able to link articles right now, I can't think of any reason to link articles to The Cornfield People, ultimately leaving it as an orphan. Spielberg, Scott and Tarantino's article have such a vast amount information that their interviews in A Book About a Film won't work for their respective articles. My only thoughts to linking other articles to The Cornfield People is maybe lost film, but it's not technically lost by definition; or perhaps incomplete film, but it was edited and screened, so that might not be suitable either; and linking it to the banned film article lacks a reliable source. Sit on it for a few weeks? We'll revisit this soon. Congrats again. Talk soon. Geeky Randy (talk) 23:24, 20 September 2015 (UTC)
