VIN cloningEdit

Please stop posting photos that show the full VIN on vehicles. See this report about VIN cloning. I suggest that you remove/blur all VINs in any photos that you have already posted. Nyth63 13:34, 4 August 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I've revised my pics to remove the VIN. Expandinglight5 (talk) 02:56, 5 August 2015 (UTC)

There does not appear to be any official policy addressing this even obliquely, it just seems to me to be better to err on the side of caution. I just created a new article on VIN cloning about the problem. I started a discussion at the Village pump but so far, no one else seems to care. Maybe I am making a mountain out of a molehill. Anyway, I appreciate you at least considering that this is a potential problem and taking some positive action rather than blowing me off. Nyth63 11:59, 5 August 2015 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of DPI Specialty FoodsEdit

 

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on DPI Specialty Foods, requesting that it be deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under two or more of the criteria for speedy deletion, by which articles can be deleted at any time, without discussion. If the page meets any of these strictly-defined criteria, then it may be soon be deleted by an administrator. The reasons it has been tagged are:

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here. Bazj (talk) 12:38, 23 January 2016 (UTC)

Regarding this, as someone who read and added extra citations to the article when it was first posted, I'll explain: the problem with the article is that it doesn't prove that the company is notable enough to qualify for a Wikipedia article. That link goes to a guide, but basically any coverage of a company on here is supposed to be based on being covered in reliable sources, like newspapers, in the form of full articles and not just things like business listings. So if you know of coverage of the company, I recommend adding it asap with the cite tool. Let me know if you have any questions regarding this. Blythwood (talk) 18:00, 23 January 2016 (UTC)

DeLoreanEdit

Then you'd better remove the subsequent references to the DMC-12 from the section on the DMC-24, which refers to it. General Ization Talk 04:41, 6 February 2019 (UTC)

Also see the cited content at DMC DeLorean: "As development continued, the model was referred to as the DSV-12 and later the DMC-12 ..." General Ization Talk 04:43, 6 February 2019 (UTC)

Those are pre-production monikers. The car was never sold as anything but a "DeLorean." If you have found other errors in the article, you are free to edit and correct. Expandinglight5 (talk) 04:44, 6 February 2019 (UTC)
Preproduction or no, there are many references to the vehicle as DMC-12 to distinguish it from other models of DeLorean vehicles. The current structure makes it pretty clear it is an alternate (and apparently commonly-used) name, so I'd suggest leaving it as it is now. General Ization Talk 04:50, 6 February 2019 (UTC)

If something is erroneously given the incorrect name, it is not justifiable to include it as encyclopedic content. The correct name is the DeLorean and should be the only name listed in an encyclopedia. Consensus has been previously reached on the DMC DeLorean page. In addition, there was only one production model made by the DeLorean Motor Company. Other "models" are simply sketches or ideas and should be listed as prototypes/concepts to avoid confusion.Expandinglight5 (talk) 04:54, 6 February 2019 (UTC)

Why did you delete me from U-M alumni section without leaving an explanation?Edit

I wondered if only dead alumni are allowed in the list, is that why I cannot put my name proudly forward as a GoBlue alum? Just wondered...please let me know your thinking. Paulsuckow (talk) 04:46, 19 March 2019 (UTC)

Only notable individuals should be listed. Expandinglight5 (talk) 04:23, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

Interior Honda CRX photo removedEdit

Hi, you removed the interior CRX photo because in your opinion it's low quality. Is it better to have no interior picture than a low quality one, genuinely curious? And 2, would you consider an improvement if I cut out the blurry dark bottom part where I have a box of food visible, as that would leave the focus more on the interior itself? Groaznic (talk) 18:02, 14 April 2019 (UTC)

Photographs should be of the same value and quality found in an encyclopedia. Expandinglight5 (talk) 04:22, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

So in your big brain you think that even a RARE ITEM like a 40 year old car deserves no picture rather than a medium-quality one??? What's wrong with having a medium quality picture until someone manages to take a higher quality one? What if that moment never comes?? Groaznic (talk) 21:29, 10 July 2019 (UTC)

Thank You, I must have copied the mistake repeatedly. YBSOne (talk) 18:58, 14 September 2019 (UTC)
