Edit to free software[edit]

Please don't add a word just because it happens to correspond to another English word in English Wikipedia. The free software movement is heavily biased to the United States and European Union, and as such, "free software" and "software libre" are the common terms for that concept.

Speedy deletion nomination of Free Software Movement of India[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Free Software Movement of India 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 a club, 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, as well as our subject-specific notability guidelines for people and for organizations. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you. - Realkyhick (Talk to me) 04:43, 22 March 2010 (UTC)

  • Hi, Vincent. "Reallyhick" basically gave the same answer that I was going to give. Best thing to do in a contested situation such as this is to create a user subpage which I'll do for you. You can edit the content at your leisure:

User:Vincentvikram/Free Software Movement of India

My suugestion would be to review WP:WEB and Wikipedia:Notability (organizations and companies) to get a better idea of what needs to go into an article to establish its notability. Notability is the key factor in any Wikipedia article. Good luck and thanks for asking. I hope I was able to help. --PMDrive1061 (talk) 14:52, 22 March 2010 (UTC)

Hi, Thanks for the help. Changes were made and the new page is at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_Software_Movement_of_India Vincent (talk) 04:44, 24 March 2010 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Free Software Movement of India[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated article is Free Software Movement of India. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also Wikipedia:Notability and "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Free Software Movement of India. Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 01:03, 27 March 2010 (UTC)

Your recent edits[edit]

civility or incivility[edit]

This I found extremely funny. What in your opinion constitutes civil language or lack of it? What prompted to you to raise concerns on the earlier poster's language? --117.207.145.30 (talk) 15:24, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

Please use templates correctly[edit]

To place a template such as Template:Refimprove on a page, you simply type {{refimprove}} at the appropriate place in the article. That's it. Some templates will take additional parameters, either named or unnamed, such as {{refimprove|section}} (unnamed) or {{refimprove|date=November 2012}} (named "date"). What you most certainly do not do is copy and paste the code of the template, as you did in these 12 edits. Anomie 03:24, 5 November 2012 (UTC)
