Notice: This article lacks WP:A to establish WP:BIOEdit

In my opinion, this article either lacks sufficient Attribution that it satisfies the Notability criteria for Biographies, or it may violate the Conflict of interest guideline, or perhaps it is a Copyright violation.


Wikipedia articles must be based on reliable sources to verify any claims of notability. Even though the lack of reliable source attribution in an article is not grounds for deletion in itself, an article with absolutely no sources (or only external links to unreliable ones) suggests to some editors that multiple reliable sources may not, in fact, exist.

Although I am considering tagging this article for deletion according to the Deletion policy, I am nonetheless willing to assist User:ArleArt (talk · contribs), and other recent contributors to this article, to make constructive improvements to it ... I do not have time to examine this article in depth at the moment, and it may improve over time, in which case this warning was premature.

Please respond on this Discussion page, instead of on my Talk page, in order to avoid fragmenting the conversation. — (talk) 08:44, 3 February 2008 (UTC)

Bad URLEdit

I don't know what country you are editing from, but cannot be accessed for Washington, D.C. using either Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer ... the purpose of the |accessdate= field in the {{cite web}} and other templates is to demonstrate that the URL was valid as of a certain date, in case it should evaporate in the future, and I cannot add such a date if I cannot access the site ... I would appreciate it if Some Other Editor would confirm either access or denial from this URL. — (talk · contribs) 05:33, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

Accessed using IE 7 from LI, NY. But its in another language, so I can't verify. MBisanz talk 05:41, 4 February 2008 (UTC)
Kewl ... even though I don't read Spanish either, I have been able to make {{cite web}} and {{cite news}} tags that include <title>, and sometimes a date and author's first and last names ... would you please make one with an |accessdate= 2008-02-04?
And could you also verify Agustín Cárdenas Alfonso and Juan Francisco Elso Padilla while you're at it? Thnx! — (talk) 05:49, 4 February 2008 (UTC)
Weird I have no problem access the URL in Miami. Any ideas why I can get it and you can't? Callelinea (talk) 05:54, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

Please format the linkEdit

OK, it looks like a DHS geographic roadblock to accessing the cite (see Talk:Agustín Cárdenas Alfonso) ... please format the EL using the {{cite web}} template ... you can use some of the other articles as examples ... whenever possible, use the <title> from the HTML file for the Web page (assuming you're an HTML newbie):

  1. from your Web browser's menu, View | Page source
  2. search for the HTML <title> tag
  3. copy the text up to the </title> end tag

Using for an example, we examine the HTML source file, and can make:

{{cite web 
 |title= The First Computer Bug! 
 |accessdate= 2008-02-04

That produces:

"The First Computer Bug!". Retrieved 2008-02-04.

Note: by using ISO 8601 date format (YYYY-MM-DD), the MediaWiki software can automagically create links to the year and date articles ... it also avoids 02/04/08 confusion. :-)

Note: the |work= will add the italics, and if the source publication has an article (e.g.. The New York Times for, then place it in [[]] so that it will be linked ... you'll have to research whether or not a Spanish language publication like El Nuevo Herald has an article.

Even though I don't read Spanish, I can take "by Jose Padilla" and make:

|first= Jose |last= Padilla

This will get displayed as Padilla, Jose in the appropriate position in the citation.

Just read the Template:Cite web and Template:Cite news documentation (for published articles/reviews without Web versions), and you'll figure out what else you can use ... BTW, I've never used it myself, but there's a {{Cite press release}} template.

Happy Editing! — (talk) 16:28, 4 February 2008 (UTC)
