I hope you like this place--I sure do--and want to stay. If you need help on how to title new articles check out Wikipedia:Naming conventions, and for help on formatting the pages visit the manual of style. If you need help look at Wikipedia:Help and The FAQ , plus if you can't find your answer there, check The Village pump (for Wikipedia related questions) or The Reference Desk (for general questions)! There's still more help at the Tutorial and Policy Library. Plus, don't forget to visit the Community Portal. And if you have any more questions after that, feel free to post them on My User talk Page.

Additional Tips:

Here's some extra tips to help you get around in the 'pedia!

  • If you made any edits before you got an account, you might be interested in assigning those to your username.
  • If you want to play around with your new Wiki skills the Sandbox is for you.
  • You can sign your name using three tildes, like &#126&#126~. If you use four, you can add a datestamp too.
  • You may want to add yourself to the New User Log
  • If you ever think a page or image should be deleted, please list it at the votes for deletion page. There is also a votes for undeletion page if you want to retrieve something that you think should not have been deleted.

Happy Wiki-ing. -- John Fader 18:43, 3 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Shiny Diamonds[edit]

It looks like the main problem that The Shiny Diamonds controversy article has at this point is with WP:NOTABLE. I would suggest reading that guideline if you haven't already. I'm still fairly new to these sorts of procedures, but if you can cite some verifiable sources on this controversy, and mention them in the discussion, it should be enough to persuade an administrator to keep this article. I would add anything you can find on this. The more sources, the better. I can help add sources to the article if you know of any.

I was mainly interested in keeping the article because it appeared to involve a Wikipedia controversy. Deleting it could have given the appearance of trying to sweep it under the rug. I wanted to wait it out to see if more developed. It looks like that isn't enough of a reason to keep something around which doesn't demonstrate notability.

If you can find more media reports, that should be enough to show notability and keep the article in place. If the article gets deleted, and more stories come out later, you can request to have the article un-deleted (see WP:UNDEL). I am not completely familiar with that process, but I'll look into it if it comes up. Just let me know.

Good luck. Don't get discouraged if the article gets deleted and don't take anything that is said in the AfD process personally. It's not about you. - Justin (Authalic) 04:48, 19 December 2006 (UTC)

Little context in Image:Man masturbates.jpg[edit]

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Image:Man masturbates.jpg, by N (talk · contribs), another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Image:Man masturbates.jpg is very short providing little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles.

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Image:Man masturbates.jpg, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Please note, this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion, it did not nominate Image:Man masturbates.jpg itself. Feel free to leave a message on the bot operator's talk page if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot. --Android Mouse Bot 2 23:19, 16 June 2007 (UTC)
