CM WALTERS -Mutt43 (talk) 19:51, 22 January 2011 (UTC)

please undelete my page ...CM WALTERS

Or I will take legal action against you and also take severe steps in denouncing wikipedia to the many literature sites as I can and I am shocked and mad at the fact you called me a hoax and I am sure other authors have done through this, but to be called a hoax, is disgraceful and very maddening.

Do you really want to take a chance that someday I might get books published in hardback or paperback and come out and say that wikipedia deleted my information page and called me a hoax. I may never get to the point but with the fan base I have now in 16,000 fans of my writings, you never know and the point if an author is somewhat known or known, he had written books or short stories that had been published online or in harbook or paper book, you CAN NOT call them a hoax or delete their information page.

please contact me at luckmutt43@aol.com and to vertify I have written 6 science fiction books and have started a new way to write science fiction called "realism science fiction", please go to this site which is where my books and short stories are..........

Not done. Mr Walters, our policy of WP:No legal threats means that I have blocked your account until you unequivocally withdraw the threat. I'm sorry that your article was called a hoax, but that is probably because you gave no references, searches in places like Google Books and Worldcat don't find your books, and one of Wikipedia's principles is WP:Verifiability - everything needs to be verifiable from a reliable source. However, your article would not be acceptable in any case, because to have a Wikipedia article an author, or anyone else, has to be notable, which is not a matter of opinion but has to be demonstrated by showing "significant coverage in reliable sources that are independent of the subject." For an author, that would mean reviews of published works in mainstream publications - see WP:AUTHOR. Also, people are strongly discouraged from writing about themselves, for reasons explained at WP:Autobiography. JohnCD (talk) 20:50, 22 January 2011 (UTC)

America's Next Top Model, Cycle 16

Article has been previously deleted and can only be recreated by administrators (I'm not). Mostly recently deleted in Nov 2010. Cycle has been confirmed by the network and debut dates announced (Feb 23rd). Should qualify for an article as an upcoming, confirmed reality TV series.

Maxtech Consumer Products

I am disputing of the deletion of this page because it contained facts, references and external links. The page wasn't written with a bias, everything stated is factual and can be checked with either the references and other materials. This company supplies North American retailers with a lot of products, and has been important in the development of the tool industry there. They work with many international suppliers and retailers. Could someone suggest to me how to amend the article to make it appropriate for publication? Thank you -Consumer101 (talk) 18:36, 24 January 2011 (UTC)

  • X mark.svg Not done. At the time of deletion the page included two references. One was a link to the company home page the other was a link to a press release. I am going to guess from the name of the account that you are associated with the business in question. If that is the case my sincere advice is that you wait for someone unrelated to the company to write an article from reliable, independent sources. That will be a much smoother ride than attempting to get ahead of the curve and write an article about your own business from company sources or privileged knowledge. There are some links at the top of this page which can help explain the issues with editing about yourself or people/things close to you as well as some advice on starting your first article. Protonk (talk) 19:32, 24 January 2011 (UTC)

The page also included several notes that refer to press releases and articles available online, which can be confirmed. I'm not associated with the company, I chose the name as I am a consumer and would like to add information to retail and product related pages from my local area, I am interested in local commerce. Consumer101 (talk) 19:42, 24 January 2011 (UTC)

  • In that case disregard the comments about conflicts of interest, but it still is important to remember that press releases alone are insufficient to indicate that a company is notable. I can email you the content of the article or move it to your user space if you wish to work on it without worry of immediate deletion, but I can't unilaterally overturn the speedy deletion. Protonk (talk) 19:48, 24 January 2011 (UTC)


Sure, if you could move it to my user space that would be great. I'm hoping to contribute a couple more articles in the next little while and start making changes on other pages. Thanks! Consumer101 (talk) 19:51, 24 January 2011 (UTC)

Lochabar

This page was a reference not only to the rich history of this particular land, but also as a testament to the legend and mythology of this area of Scotland. Thus, it is not a hoax and it follows the family history that has been long associated with this particular branch of the Henderson family. -DamianXIII (talk) 20:20, 24 January 2011 (UTC)

Not done"Thousands of years ago, on a hot, lazy Saturday afternoon on the coast of Scotland, great great great great great granddaddy Lochabar... strolled into town during the annual Atlantean arm wrestling contest... decided to enter the contest, putting up his vintage 1969 Corvette Stingray as collateral. He swept through the preliminary rounds, defeating such legendary heroes as Sean Connery, Pecos Bill, Wilford Brimley, and M. Bison. As he reached the final round he found himself facing the reigning champion, five-time Emmy Award winning actor, the Loch Ness Monster. After a three day struggle against his now long time rival, he emerged triumphant from the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, holding high the sword of Conner 'The Highlander' MacLeod, which he later used to try to deflect the time bullet which was fired by, and later killed, Abraham 'Chaingun' Lincoln."

Joe Conway

the article was deleted as a PROD with a statement that this is a non-notable politician. However, there has recently been an election called in Ireland, and Councillor Joe Conway is a declared candidate. Thus I feel it would be fair and desirable to cause the page to become accessible again, and it would cause information to become available to the irish people about a candidate in this important election. -PopOwl (talk) 22:29, 24 January 2011 (UTC)

Not done So? Candidates are not inherently notable; and WP:ITSUSEFUL is not an argument of any weight. Unless you can come up with more substantial evidence of actual notability, this one stays deleted. --Orange Mike | Talk 22:33, 24 January 2011 (UTC)

::You're declining an undeletion request on an article that has not been deleted? :) --Ron Ritzman (talk) 03:44, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

Nevermind. --Ron Ritzman (talk) 03:46, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

My attention has subsequently been drawn to the flaws in my argument for the article's un-deletion, and I just hoped that I might be allowed a second bit at the cherry. The Article was deleted due to the fact that the politician in question is non-notable. However, Wikipedia's guidelines on the notability of politicians mentions, as criteria of notability, "Politicians who have held ... sub-national (statewide/provincewide) office, and members and former members of a national, state or provincial legislature." This describes Joe Conway, who is an elected member of Tramore Town Concil and Waterford County Council, as well as many other Irish politicians without wikipedia pages. The guidelines go on to mention "Major local political figures who have received significant press coverage. Generally speaking, mayors of cities of at least regional importance are likely to meet this criterion, as are members of the main citywide government or council of a major metropolitan city." Joe Conway is certainly a major political figure. The following page displays his immense popularity in his area, and the fact that he garnered the more votes than any other candidate in the 2009 local elections: http://electionsireland.org/candidate.cfm?id=6436 Furthermore, the following page shows that Joe Conway served as mayor of Tramore in the recent past. This is a town of "at least regional importance" in the Waterford region. http://www.waterfordcoco.ie/en/localauthorities/tramoretowncouncil/towncouncillors/joeconwaytramoretownmayor/ The guidelines also state that "significant coverage in reliable sources that are independent of the subject of the article" is key to achieving notability. The following page of search results from one of Waterford's local newspapers demonstrates the frequency and significance of Conway's press coverage. http://www.munster-express.ie/?s=joe+conway The role of Ireland's County Councils is that of the higest level of local representation in Ireland, akin to US state legislatures in terms of significance. Don't take my word for it: check out Airteagal 28A of Bunreacht na hÉireann for proof. Councillors fit the guidelines for notability provided by wikipedia, and indeed some councillors have wikipedia pages accordingly, for example John Halligan. This is why I think that Conway's page should be un-deleted, and that pages for other councillors should be allowed to be created. Any thoughts? PopOwl (talk) 22:37, 26 January 2011 (UTC)

Helena von Schantz

This page was deleted before I was even aware of it - let alone able to contest it or add substance to the page. (I was out of the country when it was tagged). Since she is a politician, and in the minority liberal camp, I cannot rule out that the deletion was politically motivated. I have cited her on other pages, because she is an important voice in Swedish liberal feminism, a small but vital community in a country dominated by radical feminism. Silencing her voice silences access to liberal disent in Swedish politics. Just because she failed to be elected in the last election does not diminish her place in the women's caucus of the Swedish Liberal Party. Michael Goodyear 17:58, 27 January 2011 (UTC)

As far as I can tell there was no discussion. I would not say it "clearly" fails. Election to office is not the sole criteria by which one can judge someone's notability in political life. Discussion is obviously a lot easier when the article still exists and can be commented on. Michael Goodyear 22:30, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
And election to office is not the "sole" criterion used to define notability here at the wiki, however it is important. Did you read the guideline I posted? Unless you can provide evidence of significant coverage in a major media outlet, an unelected official is highly unlikely to be considered notable. If you disagree with our notability guidelines, try bringing it up at the notability discussion board. l'aquatique[talk] 00:52, 28 January 2011 (UTC)
I'd say we should, in general, restore deleted PRODs here unless there is a really strong reason not to. My understanding of WP:REFUND is that was part of it's charter.

PokerStrategy.com

reinclusion due to high relevance for online poker in general -Xantos-Gib (talk) 10:04, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

The article on PokerStrategy.com was deleted quite some time ago, mainly because it was viewed as (a) spammy/gambling related and (b) irrelevant.
The notion of irrelevance back then was fostered by the fact that it had nearly no U.S. traffic (quantcast traffic rank citation) - which is due to the case that for legal reasons, it does not accept U.S. customers.
Internationally, though, it is very relevant - it's the most trafficked poker information site / online forum world-wide.
Indicators:
- http://www.egrmagazine.com/events/awards/egr-awards-2010/home/
- http://www.egrmagazine.com/features/570607/qanda-dominik-kofert-chief-executive-pokerstrategycom.thtml
The overall relevance of online poker (even though morally questionable) should not be at question, and inside of online poker, the relevance of PokerStrategy.com is widely considered to be second only to the two giant operators PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker.
From a content / user perspective, PokerStrategy.com is a poker community and school, pretty comparable to e.g. DeucesCracked.
The page of course needs to be updated / rewritten etc. - where I would participate and hope others to do the same.

It has a primary school, a lower school, and a middle school. -98.201.169.59 (talk) 21:49, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

I will notify user  (talk), who proposed it, in case they wishes to nominate it at WP:Articles for deletion.

Amazon Falls

Copyright Problem -AlexanderMaxwellWood (talk) 23:13, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

I submitted Amazon Falls, a Canadian feature film to the Wikipedia website. I was given the Amazon Falls movie poster by the Director Katrin Bowen and Producer Darren Reiter. They are the owners/creators of both the film and the poster. I am putting forth a request for undeletion for this page. I will resubmit the poster once I properly sort out the Wikipedia copyright requirements.

Please advise

Suicide of Nicola Raphael

reasoning -RR1953 (talk) 13:57, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

(Yes check.svg Userfied - the page has been restored to the userspace at user:pagename.) - see below

Comment: This was deleted yesterday at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Suicide of Nicola Raphael (2nd nomination), for the second time in just over a month. The comment above was placed by the requester, and is not true: the article has not in fact been userfied, but this may be meant as a request to userfy. My view is that in view of the decisive AfD that would be pointless, and would only lead to yet another AfD with more news cuttings but a similar result; but as I filed the second AfD, I will leave this decision for another admin. Certainly the article should only be reintroduced via WP:Deletion review. JohnCD (talk) 16:26, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

Ebony March

Requester blocked as a sockpuppet. Protonk (talk) 16:03, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
The following discussion has been closed. Please do not modify it.
  • This writer is very well-known and has a great deal of material available online and in retail outlets. Also, I have followed (to the best of my abilities) Wiki's guidelines. I'm not sure the exact reason for deletion (perhaps somebody complained), as nothing is plagiarized or copyright-infringed. I placed a number of the subject's interview subjects on the page and I assume that this is the item in question. I can remove those items. or unhighlight them. but to delete the page of a person who is indeed noteworthy because of one infraction that hasn't been clearly explained seems to be a bit over the top--especially for Wikipedia. If you need the names of the interview subjects whittled down a bit, that's fine with me and I'm sure Ebony March would have no objections. I just modeled the format of the page after other pages in which musicians, publications and writers listed those persons with whom they've collaborated. But nobody's work has been stolen or used to create anything on this page. So it's all verifiable and from a number of sources that can be searched by Wikipedia's team if necessary. Everything was online, in the paper or at Barnes and noble when I put the page together.-NikosSimpson (talk) 03:07, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

deletion nominee has been identified and determined to know the subject

This article's deletion was supported by Bluefist. Bluefist's true identity has been obstructed, but I'm aware of who this individual is. This writer raised an issue that none of the information is searchable on IMDB. But at the time of inclusion, March HAD an IMDB page on IMDB professional. That's why I added the info. The IMDB page was deleted in December 2010. There is even a link to YouTube footage of March herself appearing in a trailer opposite actor Kerr Smith on the Wikipedia page.

Also, many individuals have books that are self-published and music that is self-released (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aimee_Mann) However, more accurately, Before When We Were Libertines was published by FBTC which is owned by someone named Lissy Ainsley (which is located on the inside flap of the book). This book has an ISBN of: 978-1-4507-1077-0

Next, the formatting is correct and does NOT infringe on copyright laws nor does it plagiarize any other page. All of the information IS searchable by GOOGLING March along with the subject's name. Each interview appears, plain as day. I've found numerous other interviews that she has conducted but failed to add them for lack of space. There is also an online itinerary via Google docs. I will return with the URL that has March's instructions to attend and conduct interviews with a number of these subjects. All of this info was online when I built this page. This writer is well-known and has work that is readily available to the public. This page has also been live for months and only now does someone wish to take issue with it. Had this issue been raised when the article on Ebony March first appeared, the argument might be valid, but to take issue ONLY after the interview subjects have been added reeks of a personal vendetta, which has NO place in Wikipedia, "Bluefist". -NikosSimpson (talk) 04:06, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

John B. Kimble (again)

This article was evidently deleted in 2007 and then redone and replaced in 2008 and had been up ever since but was deleted by JZG for an unknown reason. I believe the moderator was overzealous and arbitrary in his decison to remove and article after it had been on Wikipedia for more than three years. His guise of removing it because it had been deleted previously seems flimsy at best. The subject is interesting and has been receiving daily views for Wikipedia and its other subject matter. Thank you. -69.243.59.171 (talk) 03:37, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

Not done. This has been discussed higher up this page: the reason for removal was that the page had been deleted after a deletion discussion at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/John Kimble, and the new version did nothing to address the reasons for deletion. As a comment, though it is fuller it still seems to me to show no notability apart from being a political candidate, which per WP:POLITICIAN is not enough; moreover, it reads like a campaign manifesto, and Wikipedia is specifically not for promotion of any kind. I see from his talk page that the deleting admin, user JzG (talk), has been approached but declined to restore this article; if after reading that you want to proceed, you will have to go to WP:Deletion review.

Not done. You have not understood what Wikipedia is. It is a collaborative project to build an encyclopedia. It is not a free advertising notice-board for paid marketing consultants to promote their clients, and we have strong rules about editing with a WP:Conflict of interest. Copyright material cannot be accepted on the basis of assertion of permission; a formal release from the copyright holder is essential, and in any case external material is unlikely to be suitable for an encyclopedia article, because (a) it will not show the significant coverage in reliable, independent secondary sources necessary to demonstrate the notability required for a Wikipedia article, and (b) it will be written in promotional terms (and if you think that "successfully led the company through many positive transitions to become a leader in the industry", "personalized, local service on a nationwide basis", "select service offerings" and the like are not promotional, then I'm sorry, but you have been too long in the PR business or are too close to your subject).
