Welcome to the Wikipedia![edit]

Welcome to the Wikipedia, MMc! Hope you enjoy editing here and becoming a Wikipedian! Here are a few perfunctory tips to hasten your acculturation into the Wikipedia experience:

And some odds and ends: Boilerplate text, Brilliant prose, Cite your sources, Civility, Conflict resolution, How to edit a page, How to write a great article, Pages needing attention, Peer review, Policy Library, Utilities, Verifiability, Village pump, Wikiquette, and you can sign your name on any page by typing 4 tildes: ~~~~.

Best of luck, MMc, and have fun! Ombudsman 04:37, 31 December 2005 (UTC)

To Do[edit]

Ely Eel Day[edit]

Do you remember why you moved User:MacGyverMagic/WIP/Ely Eel Day to Ely Eel Day. The latter page already had a copy of the material. The userpage was intended as a sandbox (so I wouldn't spam the article history with my name when it wasn't necessary). - Mgm|(talk) 11:28, 3 December 2008 (UTC)

Minor edits[edit]

Hi, you're marking most of your edits as minor even when they are not, you may have that as your default under preferences. Also it is not necessary to add links under "see also" when they are already in the article. Drawn Some (talk) 05:31, 29 May 2009 (UTC)

Here's some information regarding what should be going in the "See also" section: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Guide_to_layout#.22See_also.22_section It's not a place to list every possible related topic. Drawn Some (talk) 10:45, 29 May 2009 (UTC)

Copyright violation[edit]

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. We appreciate your contributions to the Green job article, but for legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted.

You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words.

If the external website belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must include on the external site the statement "I, (name), am the author of this article, (article name), and I release its content under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.2 and later, and under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribute Share-Alike."

You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question at the "Help Desk". You can also leave a message on my talk page. Drawn Some (talk) 20:07, 29 May 2009 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Global Trade Watch (Australia)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Global Trade Watch (Australia), suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

No assertion of importance or significance. No independent reliable sources.

All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent 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.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because, 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 Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

I see you removed the proposed deletion notice but you added no reliable sources. I will wait before proposing it to be deleted to allow time for independent reliable sources to be added if any are available. Drawn Some (talk) 02:29, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

Warning!!!! IMPORTANT[edit]

Please do NOT restore the material at Green job that was taken from another website. It is a violation of copyright. Before you hit "Save page" there is a warning: "Do not copy text from other websites without a GFDL-compatible license. It will be deleted." and I am deleting it. Wikipedia necessarily takes copyright violations quite seriously and if you restore it again it will be considered Vandalism. Drawn Some (talk) 01:34, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

Council on Environmental Quality[edit]

I once again removed the links you are adding to this article that have nothing to do with the topic. Please review this information regarding what should be going in the "See also" section: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Guide_to_layout#.22See_also.22_section It's not a place to list every possible related topic, or in this case, unrelated topic. Thanks. Drawn Some (talk) 01:43, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

Squeezed (film) Copyright violation[edit]

Hi, I removed copyrighted material from Squeezed (film) that was taken from http://www.tradewatch.org.au/enews/50.html

If you restore it, it will be considered vandalism. If you have added other copyrighted material to Wikipedia, please remove it. Drawn Some (talk) 02:35, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

Response to your complaint[edit]

I haven't called you a vandal. I said if you replace the copyrighted material again, it will be considered vandalism, please review the vandalism guideline, it is specifically stated to be a form of vandalism. You already replaced copyrighted material once. I assumed good faith that time and gave a strong warning.
It would help if you would actually read the information I'm pointing out to you regarding copyrighted material, reliable sources, see also sections, etc. I am also asking you again now to remove any other copyrighted material you may have added in addition to the two examples I found. I am crossposting this from my talkpage. Drawn Some (talk)

International Organisation of Employers[edit]

When you created that article sub-stub you didn't even use the correct name for it so I had to move it. Drawn Some (talk) 11:32, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
