Speedy deletion nomination of Art-36.com[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Art-36.com requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Zujua (talk) 12:32, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

July 2012[edit]

Please do not write an article about yourself, as you apparently did at Phillip Witcomb. Creating an autobiography is strongly discouraged – see our guideline on writing autobiographies. If you create such an article, it may be deleted. If what you have done in life is genuinely notable and can be verified according to our policy for articles about living people, someone else will probably create an article about you sooner or later (see Wikipedians with articles). Please understand that this is an encyclopedia and not a personal web space or social networking site. If your article has already been deleted, please see: Why was my page deleted?, and if you feel the deletion was an error, please discuss it with the deleting administrator. Thank you.

Proposed deletion of Phillip Witcomb[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Phillip Witcomb has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, all newly created biographies of living persons must have at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within ten days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one.

  • Phillip (I assume that Modern Master is just your handle here), I would strongly advice you to go read up first on WP:Autobiography before venturing any further. That aside, we still welcome you to edit but there are restrictions pertaining to what you can or cannot edit/contribute when you have a clear case of WP:Conflict of interest here. FYI, you are not the first person to run into such problem here on Wikipedia and you most certainly won't be the last one either. Also, please take note that we do not entertain editors who conduct self-promotion (read also on point number 4 of WP:What Wikipedia is not#Wikipedia is not a soapbox or means of promotion) through writing their own biography page, although social media sites such as Facebook or Twitter still allow you to do so. Simply put, Wikipedia is not for you to do what you just did. Failure to comply can and may lead to you being BLOCKED and/or BANNED on a permanent basis, with your website being BLACKLISTED on Wikipedia and Google as a direct result of your self-promotion/spamming. Take heed, because this advice was served in lieu of a formal warning to you, which I really didn't want to issue in order to avoid making a newbie such as yourself feel belittled or bushwhacked. (PS: We have notable Wikipedians, some of them are very notable indeed, who went through the same phase of what you just went through and they're still with us! Because they truly understand our concern and decided to help out instead of carrying on pushing their agenda.) --Dave ♠♣♥♦™№1185©♪♫® 15:03, 23 July 2012 (UTC)
Wikipedia is an encyclopedia.
An encyclopedia is a written compendium of knowledge.
It is freely available, and incorporates elements of
general and specialized encyclopedias, almanacs, and gazetteers.
For what it isn't, see what Wikipedia is not.

Your Article[edit]

If you can provide me the proper sourcing I'd be glad to write an article on you. Please note that to be included in wikipedia you must meet our basic level of notability for inclusion. These guidelies are outlined at WP:N, for a biography you must also meet WP:ANYBIO and as an artist these WP:ARTIST. What awards have you won, dates, (links to website for the award would be best), is your art permanently featured in any museums? Coverage in news media about you or your art? Any permanent gallery showings of note? Any of this would be necessary for me to write an article, the more information and more information as outlined in the links I gave you the better. — raekyt 15:19, 23 July 2012 (UTC)
