Those Who Inspire Ltd Wiki Page
I am contacting you regarding the creation of a wiki page for Those Who Inspire Ltd. I understand you are the administrator in charge of the speedy deletion.
I would like to know better the reasons of the deletion since I don't find it at all promotional but rather informative and useful for the young people around the world to know more about an amazing source of inspiration that has helped me to find my way. It's a tribute to them.
What could you advise me to do so that it says as a tribute and not be considered as a promotion by Wikipedia?
- No, I am not the administrator who deleted it. I was that guy who placed the speedy deletion tag. Howewer, marking a page for speedy deletion and deleting it i technically not the same. Furthermore, I am no admin here, so I dont be able to (un)delete pages, while everyone is able to mark pages as speedy deletioncandidates. Victor Schmidt (talk) 14:43, 20 January 2019 (UTC)
Hello. I'm baffled by the The neutrality of this article is disputed template you pasted within 3 minutes of me creating the article on Lucy Hooper. Everything, so far, is 19th-c PD so please help me understand your point of view. Thank you. --Rosiestep (talk) 16:17, 22 March 2019 (UTC)
- What brought me to place this template was the "Biography" section in this version. I see you changed it since I placed the template. To be exact, "[...] a highly respectable merchant of Newburyport [...]", "[...] affected her very deeply " "[...] greatly admired and widely copied [...]" looked a bit suspicious like advertising. I know that you opinion is probbably different, because I know that from some more obvivios self-promoting pages. Sorry when I was a bit faster than the usual editor placing the template.

- No worries. I WP:AGF that you didn't notice that the article was entirely 19th-c PD, ergo the flowery wording, which, of course, gets edited out only after the original PD content is placed in an article. Best, --Rosiestep (talk) 16:40, 22 March 2019 (UTC)
