Welcome!

Hello, Scandiescot, and welcome to Wikipedia! I hope you like the place and decide to stay.

There's a page about creating articles you may want to read called Your first article. If you are stuck, and looking for help, please come to the New contributors' help page, where experienced Wikipedians can answer any queries you have! Or, you can just type {{helpme}} on this page, and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions. Here are a few other good links for newcomers:

Censorship[edit]

Please note WP guidelines: "Wikipedia will not remove content because of the internal bylaws of some organizations that forbid information about the organization to be displayed online. Any rules that forbid members of a given organization, fraternity, or religion to show a name or image do not apply to Wikipedia because Wikipedia is not a member of those organizations."

Verifiability[edit]

Please note WP guidelines: "Any material lacking a reliable source directly supporting it may be removed and should not be replaced without an inline citation to a reliable source... Sometimes editors will disagree on whether material is verifiable. The burden of identifying a reliable source lies with the editor who adds or restores material, and is satisfied by providing any reliable source that directly supports the material."

Please sign all of your comments on talk pages[edit]

Please sign all (!) of the comments you inserted in Nichiren Shoshu talk. "Signing your posts on talk pages, both for the article and non-article namespaces, is good practice, and facilitates discussion by helping identify the author of a particular comment. Other users can then navigate to a talk page and address their comments to the specific, relevant user(s)." (see Wikipedia:Signatures) JimRenge (talk) 19:56, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

Oh, yes. Thank you for the reminder. Scandiescot (talk) 05:47, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

Please do wait until consensus on matter is found[edit]

Information icon Please refrain from making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia. Your edits appear to constitute vandalism and have been reverted or removed. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. Administrators can block users from editing if they repeatedly vandalize. Thank you.

"Even if misguided, willfully against consensus, or disruptive, any good-faith effort to improve the encyclopedia is not vandalism. Edit warring over content is not vandalism. Careful consideration may be required to differentiate between edits that are beneficial, detrimental but well-intentioned, and vandalizing. Mislabelling good-faith edits as vandalism can be considered harmful." Reliable source: Wikipedia:Vandalism. You're welcome. Scandiescot (talk) 14:08, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

Vandalism is any addition, removal, or change of content, in a deliberate attempt to compromise the integrity of Wikipedia. Examples of typical vandalism are adding irrelevant obscenities and crude humor to a page, illegitimately blanking pages, and inserting obvious nonsense into a page. Abusive creation or usage of user accounts and IP addresses may also constitute vandalism.
Vandalism is prohibited. While editors are encouraged to warn and educate vandals, warnings are by no means necessary for an administrator to block.So far this is a warning, nothing more, nothing less. WAIT until issue is resolved. --Catflap08 (talk) 14:16, 12 March 2014 (UTC)
Key phrase: "in a deliberate attempt to compromise the integrity of Wikipedia."
"WAIT until issue is resolved." See above, "Even if misguided, willfully against consensus, or disruptive, any good-faith effort to improve the encyclopedia is not vandalism. Edit warring over content is not vandalism..." Scandiescot (talk) 14:49, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

This is not about content in terms of text as another user has pointed out earlier. You simply remove information even though the discussion is still going on. NO consensus has been reached, NO decision been made by Commons. --Catflap08 (talk) 15:07, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

An image is content] is not vandalism. Careful consideration may be required to differentiate between edits that are beneficial, detrimental but well-intentioned, and vandalizing. Mislabelling good-faith edits as vandalism can be considered harmful." Reliable source: Wikipedia:Vandalism. You're welcome. Scandiescot (talk) 20:34, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

You made quite clear in your first post where you are coming from – your sects bylaws. This site is not owned by Nichiren Shoshu nor SGI.--Catflap08 (talk) 20:50, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

Yes, and I've also made it quite clear why that is relevant. WP guidelines for talk pages state, "Do not misrepresent other people".
