Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, one or more of the external links you added such as to the page SimCity 2000 do not comply with our guidelines for external links and have been removed. Wikipedia is not a collection of links; nor should it be used for advertising or promotion, and doing so is contrary to the goals of this project. Since Wikipedia uses nofollow tags, external links do not alter search engine rankings. If you feel the link should be added to the article, please discuss it on the article's talk page before reinserting it. Please take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. This is also a warning. Subsequent violations of this type may result in you being blocked, per Wikipedia policy. Thank you.  GSK (talkevidence) 05:09, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

Since the link I added is unacceptable, since it leads to a commercial website and is considered spam under the Wikipedia guidelines and a violation of Wikipedia policy; then, for the same reason, the link to MobyGames at the SimCity 2000 article should be removed as well since MobyGames is also a commercial website where the game is sold. I was hesitant to add the link, but, after seeing the MobyGames link and going to that website, I thought that adding the link was then okay. S Martin (talk) 07:44, 27 September 2009 (UTC)
