Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, your addition of one or more external links to the page Mr Benn has been reverted.
Your edit here to Mr Benn was reverted by an automated bot that attempts to remove links which are discouraged per our external links guideline. The external link(s) you added or changed (http://jeff-houston.wikia.com/wiki/Evan_McKinney, http://jeff-houston.wikia.com/wiki/Jeff_Houston) is/are on my list of links to remove and probably shouldn't be included in Wikipedia. If the external link you inserted or changed was to an external Wiki, then please note that these links should generally not be included (see 'links to avoid' #12).
If you were trying to insert an external link that does comply with our policies and guidelines, then please accept my creator's apologies and feel free to undo the bot's revert. However, if the link does not comply with our policies and guidelines, but your edit included other, constructive, changes to the article, feel free to make those changes again without re-adding the link.

Hi 98.170.210.55,

I noticed that you recently added a large chunk of text to the Flag of Missouri article about Marie Watkins Oliver. There's a couple of issues with the text. Since it discusses Oliver aside from her work with the flag, the information would be better in a separate biography article for Oliver, rather than lumped in with the Flag of Missouri article. The text also does not cite any sources (see Wikipedia:Citing sources) and is copied entirely from a biography published by The State Historical Society of Missouri (http://shs.umsystem.edu/historicmissourians/name/o/oliver/index.html). Because of the lack of attribution, your inclusion of the text is considered Wikipedia:Plagiarism as well as Wikipedia:Copyright violations, both of which are against Wikipedia's guidelines. In the future, please avoid both plagiarism and copyright infringement.

I've reverted the Flag of Missouri article to its previous edit. I think a biography on Marie Watkins Oliver would be great, but please add it as a separate article, be sure to cite your sources and avoid copying text directly.

Thanks! Anne Anneecox (talk) 18:53, 5 June 2013 (UTC)

Information icon Hello, I'm XLinkBot. I wanted to let you know that I removed an external link you added to the page Flag of Indiana, because it seemed to be inappropriate for an encyclopedia. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page, or take a look at our guidelines about links.  
Your edit here to Flag of Indiana was reverted by an automated bot that attempts to remove links which are discouraged per our external links guideline. The external link(s) you added or changed (http://mplindianaroom.blogspot.com/2010/04/paul-hadley-designer-of-indiana-state.html) is/are on my list of links to remove and probably shouldn't be included in Wikipedia. If the external link you inserted or changed was to a blog, forum, free web hosting service, fansite, or similar site (see 'Links to avoid', #11), then please check the information on the external site thoroughly. Note that such sites should probably not be linked to if they contain information that is in violation of the creator's copyright (see Linking to copyrighted works), or they are not written by a recognised, reliable source. Linking to sites that you are involved with is also strongly discouraged (see conflict of interest).
If you were trying to insert an external link that does comply with our policies and guidelines, then please accept my creator's apologies and feel free to undo the bot's revert. However, if the link does not comply with our policies and guidelines, but your edit included other, constructive, changes to the article, feel free to make those changes again without re-adding the link.
