Speedy deletion of Alex Welgraven[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Alex Welgraven 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 person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for biographies.

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 (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article 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 article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. - Realkyhick (Talk to me) 18:42, 8 February 2008 (UTC)


Nuvola apps personal.png You should wait for others to write an article about subjects in which you are personally involved. This applies to articles about you, your achievements, your band, your business, your publications, your website, your relatives, and any other possible conflict of interest.

Creating an article about yourself is strongly discouraged. If you create such an article, it might be listed on articles for deletion. Deletion is not certain, but many feel strongly that you should not start articles about yourself. This is because independent creation encourages independent validation of both significance and verifiability. All edits to articles must conform to Wikipedia:No original research, Wikipedia:Neutral point of view, and Wikipedia:Verifiability.

If you are not "notable" under Wikipedia guidelines, creating an article about yourself may violate the policy that Wikipedia is not a personal webspace provider and would thus qualify for speedy deletion. If your achievements, etc., are verifiable and genuinely notable, and thus suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia, someone else will probably create an article about you sooner or later. (See Wikipedia:Wikipedians with articles.) Thank you. JohnCD (talk) 18:47, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

Deletion[edit]

I'm afraid I have had to delete the article you wrote at Alex Welgraven, under the concerns listed above. I can only echo what others have said: writing an article about yourself represents a clear conflict of interest and is discouraged on Wikipedia. I'm sorry that your first day here on the project has been a negative one, and I hope that this action won't dissuade you from staying on Wikipedia. Although we do have a few firm rules and policies that we insist all editors follow, Wikipedia is an otherwise very welcoming place, with absolutely loads to do. If you're interested in helping out here, there are a variety of useful tasks always up for grabs and listed here. Get stuck in, have fun, and don't let this rocky start get you down. Happy editing!

Move Your Feet (Short Film)[edit]

Another editor has added the "{{prod}}" template to the article Move Your Feet (Short Film), suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but the editor doesn't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and has explained why in the article (see also Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not and Wikipedia:Notability). Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia or discuss the relevant issues at its talk page. If you remove the {{prod}} template, the article will not be deleted, but note that it may still be sent to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.
