Welcome to the Article Rescue Squadron!Edit

Hi, Havok, welcome to the Article Rescue Squadron! We are a growing community of Wikipedia editors dedicated to identifying and rescuing articles that have been tagged for deletion. Every day hundreds of articles are deleted, many rightfully so. But many concern notable subjects and are poorly written, ergo fixable and should not be deleted. We try to help these articles quickly improve and address the concerns of why they are proposed for deletion. This covers a lot of ground and your help is appreciated!

If you have any questions, feel free to ask on the talk page, and we will be happy to help you.

And once again - Welcome! Ikip (talk) 17:11, 12 April 2009 (UTC)

Add a template?Edit

You may want to add a click here to add a message template, as I have on my talk page:


<div class="plainlinks" style="font-size: 120%; margin-left: 5px; margin-right: 5px; border: 1px solid #6688AA; background: #E9ECFF; text-align: center">
'''[{{fullurl:User talk:Havok|action=edit&section=new}} Click here to leave me a message]'''</div>

it is rather confusing when an editor comes to your talk page and only sees three boxes, and no previous comments. Ikip (talk) 17:13, 12 April 2009 (UTC)

Question regarding external linksEdit

Hi, Havok. I've noticed that you have considerable experience with external links, so I'd like to solicit your advice regarding another editor's question on external links. The editor's concern regards external links and references linking to, a reliable, well-established online news source focusing on New Jersey politics. The editor has posted his concerns at Talk:New Jersey gubernatorial election, 2009#Malware Link?, but be advised that this website is linked to/referenced not just at New Jersey gubernatorial election, 2009 but at numerous other articles. Here's the user's message:

The referenced website has been flagged by McAfee "Site Advisor" as a possible trojan distributor (IRC/Flood trojan). I'm unsure of Wikipedia policy/process as to the display of suspect links as sources both within an article and in its history and am soliciting comments from anyone versed in dealing with this type of issue.

Your advice would be much appreciated. Thanks, A Stop at Willoughby (talk) 15:57, 8 November 2009 (UTC)


Thanks for the image on Nintendo DSi. However, if you plan to upload similar images in the future, make sure no copyrighted material is on-screen. Thanks again! « ₣M₣ » 00:35, 7 December 2009 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:We Love Katamari OST.jpgEdit

Thanks for uploading File:We Love Katamari OST.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of "file" pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Skier Dude (talk) 06:32, 8 December 2009 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Classes in World of WarcraftEdit


The article Classes in World of Warcraft has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Classic example of an article that violates wp:GAMEGUIDE. This type of information belogns on the official site, not on wikipedia

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 {{proposed deletion/dated}} 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 {{proposed deletion/dated}} 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. Yoenit (talk) 21:53, 26 June 2011 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:ToTheGame.jpgEdit


Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:ToTheGame.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 08:54, 24 June 2012 (UTC)
