However, the external links you added to the page Tenby do not comply with our guidelines for external links. Wikipedia is not a mere directory of links; nor should it be used for advertising or promotion. Since Wikipedia uses nofollow tags, external links do not alter search engine rankings.

A Roads[edit]

Hi, I just wanted to know why you think the A roads you deleted are not notable. Please see the notability guidelines in Wikipedia:Notability. There are many published sources covering these A roads from mapping web sites like Google Maps and Multimap. In addition they are shown in all UK motoring atlases and local maps like the A-Z publications. These are all independent sources and are reliable. If you disagree, I am happy to seek the opinions on other editors on this. Rawclaw (talk) 18:11, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Actually, notability guidelines for roads aren't fully fleshed out yet. You might like to contribute to the discussion at: Wikipedia talk:Notability (Transportation), though so far, it looks like road types like A-roads are deemed inherently notable. Rawclaw (talk) 12:06, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

Please stop effectively deleting articles by converting them to redirects. There is a long-standing consensus that all GB A-roads are notable. Saga City (talk) 12:28, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for your comments on Talk:A4018 road. It's an interesting theory that if a subject does not call for a long article it indicates that it does not merit one at all, but I don't think that many editors would agree with you. If that's what you really think, then I suggest that you repropose the article for deletion, and also debate your views on notability at Wikipedia talk:Notability (Transportation), as suggested above. I hope that you will feel able to abide by the consensus. Mhockey (talk) 13:50, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

Use of talk-page tempates[edit]

User warning templates are designed for clear vandalism or breach of policy. Misuse of such templates if you dispute the addition or removal of some content with another editor may be considered disruptive. Disruptive editing prevents the improvement of the encyclopedia and may result in blocks from editing. Please instead assume good faith, and try and address the concerns of editors. Thanks, Ian¹³/t 22:29, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

Reply from Ian13[edit]

Mail-reply-sender.svg Thank you for your message on my talk page. I have replied to your message and would be grateful if you'd continue the discussion on my talk page. Ian¹³/t 12:13, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

Please stop reverting B roads[edit]

There is no specific consensus in these controversial cases to redirect these pages. Please may I ask you to cease doing so, and instead discuss changes on the talk page. If you continue to delete the page content without discussion, you could be blocked for disruptive editing. Ian¹³/t 12:17, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

September 2008[edit]

Stop x nuvola with clock.svg
You have been blocked from editing for a period of 24 hours in accordance with Wikipedia's blocking policy for violating the three-revert rule at A4232 road ([1] [2] [3] [4] [5]). Please be more careful to discuss controversial changes or seek dispute resolution rather than engaging in an edit war. If you believe this block is unjustified, you may contest the block by adding the text {{unblock|your reason here}} below. Ian¹³/t 16:01, 3 September 2008 (UTC)
If this is a shared IP address, and you didn't make the edit, consider creating an account for yourself so you can avoid further irrelevant notices.

This blocked user's unblock request has been reviewed by an administrator, who declined the request. Other administrators may also review this block, but should not override the decision without good reason (see the blocking policy). Do not remove this unblock review while you are blocked. (block logactive blocksglobal blocksautoblockscontribs deleted contribscreation log change block settingsunblockfilter log)

Request reason:

Requesting an additional block for User:Seth Whales, who refused to engage in positive dialogue on the talk page when invited, and did not provide suitable reasons for duplicating information in the article.

Decline reason:

User:Seth Whales does not appear to have violated WP:3RR, and also attempted to discuss this with you at Talk:A4232_road#Junction_names_etc., referencing the information he had already found at Talk:A4232_road#Junction_names about the issue. -- Natalya 16:36, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first, then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page until your block has expired.

I would like to point out that you have that backwards. I raised the matter for discussion (in asking the question "Can you provide evidence that the terms you have provided are used as actual names rather than as points of reference?" - to which no answer was ever provided), and User:Seth Whales continued to revert - and reverted again after I had ceased doing so some 4 hours before the block was in place. (talk) 08:14, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

Please stop removing large sections of cited material without discussion [6]. Doing so may lead to another block. Ian¹³/t 18:29, 9 September 2008 (UTC)
