Aylmer, Ontario[edit]

Please do not try to aid your otherwise wonderful SEO campaign by spamming the Aylmer article with links. For explanation, please read What Wikipedia is not, especially Wikipedia is not a propaganda machine and Wikipedia is not a mirror or a repository of links, images, or media files. Thanks. --Qviri 17:10, 19 November 2005 (UTC)

Please stop or I will have to get an administrator to intervene. Thanks. --Qviri 03:26, 20 November 2005 (UTC)

This is your last warning. The next time you vandalize a page, you will be blocked from editing Wikipedia. --Qviri 03:44, 20 November 2005 (UTC)



on Wikipedia it's customary to ask questions or leave messages on a user's talk page (such as User talk:Qviri or User talk:Bobmutch). Questions are normally answered on the talk page of the user who initiated the contact, and the conversation sort of gets bounced back and forth between the two pages. Therefore, I originally left you messages on this page.

Things get a wee bit complicated when someone forgets to log in. I wrote my response to the original question you asked me on User talk:, since that's the IP you were using when you left the message. If you haven't read that answer yet, please do.

I'm not out to get anyone; however, it is important to understand that informal as it might appear, Wikipedia is still an encyclopedia and its content will be screened by the editors (that's everyone). A huge collection of links, while it might be added with a noble purpose, will be generally regarded as link spam not suitable for an encyclopedia and deleted.

I don't want you to get discouraged from Wikipedia. It is a great way to contribute to the general knowledge. I would heartily encourage you to contribute valuable knowledge. If you'd like, expanding the article about Aylmer would be a great way to start, since you do know the city as a local. In a shameless bout of self promotion, take a look at Welland, Ontario to see how much can be written even about a moderately-sized city.

If you have any further questions, feel free to ask me on User talk:Qviri. For clarity, you can sign your comments with ~~~~ (four tildes), which will insert your username and the current date automatically.

Thanks a lot. --Qviri 16:55, 21 November 2005 (UTC)

Moved from User talk:[edit]

For explanation of my removing of the collection of links, please see my first message on User talk:Bobmutch. I outlined my basis for deletion of your excessively-sized collection of links there.

While links to the most important of the public institutions (such as the city hall and the library) are OK, please restrain from adding links to every single Aylmer business and political entity. My personal rule of thumb for an article of this size would be that the list of links should not be longer than half the size of the article itself.

Furthermore, please leave me messages on my talk page, rather than the user page. I moved your original question there.

Thanks. --Qviri 03:44, 21 November 2005 (UTC)
