this is my page and I am going to add references and sources as soon as I find the links.
Welcome to Wikipedia. A page you recently created, Arya shirani, may not conform to some of Wikipedia's guidelines for new pages, so it will shortly be removed (if it hasn't been already). Please use the sandbox for any tests, and consider using the Article Wizard. For more information about creating articles, you may want to read Your first article. You may also want to read our introduction page to learn more about contributing. Thank you. Ian.thomson (talk) 23:07, 31 January 2010 (UTC)
You should wait for others to write an article about subjects in which you are personally involved, as you did at Arya shirani. 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. Ian.thomson (talk) 23:07, 31 January 2010 (UTC)
Barnes and Nobles
Welcome to Wikipedia. We welcome and appreciate your contributions, but we cannot accept original research, such as this edit of yours to Barnes & Noble. Original research refers to material obtained through personal knowledge, or unpublished syntheses of previously published material, rather than material that is supported by reliable, verifiable sources. Please make sure you cite a reliable source for all of the information you add or re-add to articles. You can learn how to do this at Wikipedia:Citing sources.
In addition, Wikipedia requires Civility among editors when they disagree with one another. Asking another editor in an edit summary, "do you not have anything better to do than this?" is a violation of this policy. If you disagree with another editor, please talk it out, and adhere to policy.
- Just to be clear, what you need to do is find a reliable source that has the information you want to add to the article, then add the info and cite the reference to support it. If you do that, however, please don't put it in the lede section, and certainly not as the first piece of information just after the company's name, that's giving the information too much weight, as it's really not the most important thing to know about B&N. Find some place down in the body of the article where it will fit in and put it there. Beyond My Ken (talk) 17:07, 20 May 2010 (UTC)
