Eddie Segoura article[edit]

Editors using IP addresses and (at least one presumably being Wikipedia user EddieSegoura) created or edited a quote article titled Eddie Segoura. It was quickly nominated for deletion as having a non-notable subject. Please note that this is not a criticism of quoteworthiness. Wikiquote's Main Page introduction clearly states that it is a compendium of quotes from notable people and creative works, like any significant quotation publication (e.g., Bartlett's, Oxford), just as Wikipedia is an encyclopedia for notable topics. We no more accept personal quotation articles from WQ editors than WP accepts articles about WP editors. Like Wikipedia, we do allow editors to place such information on their user pages; in fact, we encourage folks to add their own (or their friends' or any favorite) quotes to there. Please read Wikiquote:FAQ for more information. Also, please note that, like Wikipedia, we do not allow removal of VFD tags after nomination until the vote is closed. Thank you for your cooperation. ~ Jeff Q (talk) 08:55, 27 December 2005 (UTC)
