Moves[edit]

What to type What it makes
{{subst:uw-move1|Article}} Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, articles should not be moved, as you did to Article, without good reason. They need to have a name that is both accurate and intuitive. Wikipedia has some guidelines in place to help with this. Generally, a page should only be moved to a new title if the current name doesn't follow these guidelines. Also, if a page move is being discussed, consensus needs to be reached before anybody moves the page. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you.
{{subst:uw-move2|Article}} Information icon Please do not move a page to a title that is harder to follow, or move it unilaterally against naming conventions or consensus, as you did to Article.

If you would like to experiment with page titles and moving, please use the test Wikipedia. Thank you.

Manual of style[edit]

What to type What it makes
{{subst:uw-mos1|Article}} Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia, and thank you for your contributions. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, please note that there is a Manual of Style that should be followed to maintain a consistent, encyclopedic appearance. Deviating from this style, as you did in Article, disturbs uniformity among articles and may cause readability or accessibility problems. Please take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you.
{{subst:uw-mos2|Article}} Information icon Please do not use styles that are unusual, inappropriate or difficult to understand in articles, as you did in Article. There is a Manual of Style, and edits should not deliberately go against it without special reason. Thank you.

If you continue to use disruptive, inappropriate or hard-to-read formatting, as you did at Article, you may be blocked from editing.

Not censored[edit]

What to type What it makes
{{subst:uw-notcensored1|Article}} Information icon Hello, I'm [[User:{{subst:REVISIONUSER}}|{{subst:REVISIONUSER}}]]. I noticed that you removed topically-relevant content from Article. However, Wikipedia is not censored to remove content that might be considered objectionable. Please do not remove or censor information that directly relates to the subject of the article. If the content in question involves images, you have the option to configure Wikipedia to hide images that you may find offensive. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you may leave a message on my talk page. Thank you.
{{subst:uw-notcensored2|Article}} Information icon Please do not remove information from articles, as you did to Article. Wikipedia is not censored, and content is not removed on the sole grounds of perceived offensiveness. Please discuss this issue on the article's talk page to reach consensus rather than continuing to remove the disputed material. If the content in question involves images, you also have the option to configure Wikipedia to hide the images that you may find offensive. Thank you.
{{subst:uw-notcensored3|Article}} Please stop. Wikipedia is not censored. Any further changes which have the effect of censoring an article, such as you did to Article, will be regarded as vandalism. If you continue in this manner, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia.

Personal attacks[edit]

What to type What it makes
{{subst:uw-npa1|Article}} Information icon Hello, I'm [[User:{{subst:REVISIONUSER}}|{{subst:REVISIONUSER}}]].

If you have any questions, you can leave me a message on [[User_talk:{{subst:REVISIONUSER}}|my talk page]]. Thank you.

Neutral point of view[edit]

What to type What it makes
{{subst:uw-npov1|Article}} Information icon Hello, I'm [[User:{{subst:REVISIONUSER}}|{{subst:REVISIONUSER}}]]. Wikipedia is written by people who have a wide diversity of opinions, but we try hard to make sure articles have a neutral point of view. Your recent edit to Article seemed less than neutral to me, so I removed it for now. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on [[User_talk:{{subst:REVISIONUSER}}|my talk page]]. Thank you.
{{subst:uw-npov2|Article}} Information icon Please do not add commentary or your own personal analysis to Wikipedia articles, as you did to Article. Doing so violates Wikipedia's neutral point of view policy and breaches the formal tone expected in an encyclopedia. Thank you.
{{subst:uw-npov3|Article}} Warning icon Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to violate Wikipedia's neutral point of view policy by adding commentary and your personal analysis into articles, as you did at Article, you may be blocked from editing.

Original research[edit]

What to type What it makes
{{subst:uw-nor1|Article}} Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia. We welcome and appreciate your contributions, including your edits to Article, but we cannot accept original research.

Please be prepared to cite a reliable source for all of your contributions. Thank you.

Article ownership[edit]

What to type What it makes
{{subst:uw-own1|Article}} Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to Wikipedia. However, please remember that editors do not own articles and should respect the work of their fellow contributors on Article. If you create or edit an article, remember that others are free to change its content. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you.
{{subst:uw-own2|Article}} Information icon Please do not assume ownership of articles as you did at Article. If you aren't willing to allow your contributions to be edited extensively or be redistributed by others, please do not submit them. Thank you.
{{subst:uw-own3|Article}} Please stop assuming ownership of articles as you did at Article. Behavior such as this is regarded as disruptive and could lead to edit wars and personal attacks, and is a violation of Wikipedia policy. If you continue, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia.

External links spam[edit]

What to type What it makes
{{subst:uw-spam1|Article}} Information icon Hello, I'm [[User:{{subst:REVISIONUSER}}|{{subst:REVISIONUSER}}]].

{{subst:uw-spam2|Article}} Information icon Please do not add inappropriate external links to Wikipedia, as you did to Article. Wikipedia is not a collection of links, nor should it be used for advertising or promotion. Inappropriate links include, but are not limited to, links to personal websites, links to websites with which you are affiliated (whether as a link in article text, or a citation in an article), and links that attract visitors to a website or promote a product. See the external links guideline and spam guideline for further explanations. Because Wikipedia uses the nofollow attribute value, its external links are disregarded by most search engines. If you feel the link should be added to the page, please discuss it on the associated talk page rather than re-adding it. Thank you.
{{subst:uw-spam3|Article}} Please stop adding inappropriate external links to Wikipedia, as you did to Article. It is considered spamming and Wikipedia is not a vehicle for advertising or promotion. Because Wikipedia uses nofollow tags, additions of links to Wikipedia will not alter search engine rankings. If you continue spamming, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia.
{{subst:uw-spam4|Article}} Stop icon You may be blocked from editing without further warning the next time you insert a spam link, as you did at Article. Persistent spammers may have their websites blacklisted, preventing anyone from linking to them from all Wikimedia sites as well as potentially being penalized by search engines.
{{subst:uw-spam4im|Article}} Stop icon This is your only warning; if you insert a spam link to Wikipedia again, as you did at Article, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. Persistent spammers may have their websites blacklisted, preventing anyone from linking to them from all Wikimedia sites as well as potentially being penalized by search engines.
