British schools smallbore rifle association[edit]

Hello GBA136,

It seems to me that an article you worked on, British schools smallbore rifle association, may be copied from http://bssra.org/. It's entirely possible that I made a mistake, but I wanted to let you know because Wikipedia is strict about copying from other sites.

It's important that you edit the article and rewrite it in your own words, unless you're absolutely certain nothing in it is copied. If you're not sure how to fix the problem or have any questions, there are people at the help desk who are happy to assist you.

I did some formatting on this for the copyright issue, and on the references. However, more cited independant refs (not from the BSSRA itself) are highly desirable. I left some suggestions on the talk page. Please look at that, and at what I did with the refs, and perhaps also read referencing for beginners. URLs should always include "http://" (or https://). There should always be at least the name of the site to which the link is going, and a full {{cite web}} or other method of supplying full bibliographic details is really desirable.

No Reliable sources stated; all sources are primary. Please see WP:GNG and WP:42

While all constructive 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.

Blockquote usage[edit]

Blockquote tags come in pairs, and are used to identify a sizable quote that should be set off from the rest of the text. For example:


Here I introduce the quote:

<blockquote>"This is a rather long passage, normally more than one line long, quoted from some source which I should have identified above, and generally backed up with a citation. It may extend to more than a single sentance."</blockquote>

(Note that the passage is started with <blockquote> and ends with </blockquote>, the slash indicates a closing tag.)

This will render as:

Here I introduce the quote:

"This is a rather long passage, normally more than one line long, quoted from some source which I should have identified above, and generally backed up with a citation. It may extend to more than a single sentance."

I hope this example is helpful. DES (talk) 23:57, 18 December 2013 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of British Cadet Rifle Team[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article British Cadet Rifle Team has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

You must meet the guidelines of Wikipedia:Notability (organizations and companies); it is not enough to just link to the club's own site. If they were founded in 1910, undoubtedly they must be discussed in books, journal articles, news media, etc.

Please expand the article with such sources, or it will be deleted in 7 days. If you need more time, go to Wikipedia:Userification and ask that it be moved to a safe drafting space for you to work on at leisure.

While all constructive 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.
