March 2014[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Sɛvɪnti faɪv. I wanted to let you know that I undid one or more of your recent contributions because it appeared to be promotional. Advertising and using Wikipedia as a "soapbox" are against Wikipedia policy and not permitted. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about Wikipedia. Thank you. 75* 18:03, 14 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for message. I deleted your article because

  • it did not provide independent verifiable sources to enable us to verify the facts and show that it meets the notability guidelines. (organizations and companies) (music) It is now Wikipedia policy that biographical articles about living people must have independent verifiable references, or they will be deleted. You had no references, and the external links seemed not to be to independent sources. If you recreate, you will need proper independent references, and in-line citations. If you don't know how to add in-line refs, let me know.
  • it was written in a promotional tone. Articles must be neutral and encyclopaedic. Examples of unsourced claims presented as fact include: energetically oversees... wide range of humanitarian projects... teachings are direct, lively, and practical... strong emphasis... tireless implementation... — and on and on in the same vein. it's a hagiography, not an encyclopaedia article.
  • The article was created in a single edit without wikilinks or references, and looks as if was copied from an unknown and possibly copyrighted source. Copyrighted text is not allowed in Wikipedia, as outlined in this policy. That applies even to pages created by you or your organisation, unless they state clearly and explicitly that the text is public domain. There are ways to donate copyrighted text to Wikipedia, as described here; please note that simply asserting on the talk page that you are the owner of the copyright, or you have permission to use the text, isn't sufficient.
  • please advise on what we need to add for the page to be acceptable. You should not be editing on behalf of anyone else.

I'll restore the infobox and the two acceptable external links, the text is far too spammy. I'll post the text here shortly. Jimfbleak - talk to me? 12:39, 15 March 2014 (UTC)
