Thank you. ~ Fook 16:36, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

I notice that the quotes were moved from Bill Maher to Real Time With Bill Maher, not simply deleted. If you would please use edit summaries to explain what you are doing, then misunderstandings like the above can be avoided. Thanks. ~ Ningauble 18:21, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

Steve Prefontaine[edit]

I have added a "{{prod}}" template to the article Steve Prefontaine, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but it may not satisfy Wikiquote's criteria for inclusion, for the reasons given in the deletion notice (see also "What Wikiquote is not" and Wikiquote's deletion policy). You may contest the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page. Also, please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Votes for deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.
