False Edit[edit]

I have received a message claiming I have made an edit to a Martha clan page, however I have not made any edits at all. Please clarify. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:37, 8 February 2015 (UTC)

You are referring to this edit ( However, given this is a IP address edit, someone else who used this IP address in the past have made the edit for which I reverted. You do not need to worry about it, particularly it has been a number of years.--Cahk (talk) 01:06, 10 February 2015 (UTC)

File: Royal Heraldry Society of Canada[edit]


i has written the article about Royal Heraldry Society of Canada in german language. Can you take the image/logo of the Society in the infobox in german article? Thanks!

Best Regards --Wissenschaftler-Uni (talk) 13:28, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

You can upload the image to the German version of the article. The image cannot be uploaded to the Wikimedia Commons because it is a fair use image, which would otherwise make the image available across all Wikipedia language sites.--Cahk (talk) 19:52, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:CFSEU.jpg[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:CFSEU.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 00:14, 19 March 2015 (UTC)

You have just deleted my link on Desiree, can I build a new independent link? Thanks.

Be very careful, this is misuse of rollback as it is an illegitimate edit. Users are welcome to remove warnings per WP:BLANKING and it is a breach of policy for others to restore those warnings. --FAT RAT (talk) 20:49, 21 March 2015 (UTC)

Regarding MarkupChop article[edit]


Please advise me which section you think as the promotional in this article MarkupChop to remove it for make this article available. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Celvakumar (talkcontribs) 09:25, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

You should leave a message with Jc86035 who tagged your article. My revert is strictly on the removal of the speedy removal tag.--Cahk (talk) 09:28, 22 March 2015 (UTC)
@Celvakumar: I tagged your article because, as the notice explains, you created a conflict of interest by writing an article about your own project (you put your own name in the "Founder" entry of the infobox); you removed the deletion notice that another editor added without actually resolving the problem; and you don't have any sources except the company website and blog (those are considered bad sources because they're too closely related to the subject of articles).

Hi, Cahk. Please limit your reports in WP:UAA. Thanks. Pikachu2568 (talk) 05:13, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) As a longtime contributor to UAA, I can vouch for the fact that admins won't take action on accounts with no edit history at all. If they seem related to a real business/organization/group, {{uw-username}} seems to be the most appropriate response.
If they have edited but only in the draft space and it's promotional, then {{uw-coi-username}} is the most effective.
But if they edit in the mainspace or userspace, UAA is fair game. --Drm310 (talk) 05:27, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

hi im just trying to add 2 links which is about guayusa like everyone else has done on the page.

which one is not allowed and why? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:54, 24 March 2015 (UTC)

Neither are allowed - read WP:PROMOTION. Thank you for brining to my attention the links to various commercial websites, for which I have removed them.--Cahk (talk) 06:58, 24 March 2015 (UTC)


ok well if you are going to take off my external link why dont you take off all of them because they all lead back to someone selling guayusa. plus under notes you have 3 website links linking back to products they are under notes.

they are

I wanted to put my link up there because i sell guayusa also like the other links you have up. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:04, 24 March 2015 (UTC)

Thank you again. I did remove all of them just now.--Cahk (talk) 07:07, 24 March 2015 (UTC)

CSD tagging speed[edit]

Hey, I noticed you tagged Tom Fexas as A7, when, after a google search, it's seen that Fexas is a notable person in the yacht designing world. Tagging within a minute or two of article creation is something that should be avoided, as new article creators may not have had enough time to insert references and the like that counter a potential CSD tagging. I know it's easy enough to just click the Twinkle button (I was guilty of it as well), but you probably should wait a couple of minutes in the future before tagging. All the best, Buggie111 (talk) 22:44, 29 March 2015 (UTC)

The tagging speed issue was my fault[edit]

I have created a handful of pages which, once finished, worked out well. However I did not edit this page Tom Fexas in a sandbox first, I simply created the new page, added the first couple of sentences, and was going to continue editing from there. I had done that with past pages, but I see that you now have bots to instantly catch that sort of thing before the page can be completed. In the future I will edit the entire page before posting it, my apology. That will have the added benefit of being able to finish the page I started, rather than having someone else immediately take it over and block me out while they research the article I had already researched and was prepared to write. :-) But thanks for the help, much appreciated. Thanks, Tomstevenson (talk) 00:13, 30 March 2015 (UTC) Tom Stevenson — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tomstevenson (talkcontribs) 00:07, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

Sorry, didn't want to make it seem you were being left out (that template was towards anyone who wanted to re-tag it). Some people don't return to articles they created for a long time, which is why I didn't want to simply revert and leave it alone. Anyways, I've finished putting in the info from the URL's I've got, so (s)he's yours. Also, you will be getting credit for the WP:DYK nomination. Buggie111 (talk) 00:18, 30 March 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the messages. I should have researched a bit more before tagging. My apologies.--Cahk (talk) 04:13, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

An assertion that someone is a professor at a University or has published books (except self-published books) is an indication of plausible significance, and passes A7. It doesn't necessarily mean actual notability, but John Metz Baer is a Fellow of the APA, which passes the notability standard WP:PROF. DGG ( talk ) 03:17, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

Reason for content removal[edit]

I removed the Chance 'scandal' on the Skeletonwitch page because neither he or Skeletonwitch have publically made a statement about it and as nobody really knows a lot of information and it could be twisted around very easily I believe they (And I, as a respectful fan) would much rather have it kept as lowkey as possible — Preceding unsigned comment added by Misscadaveroux (talkcontribs) 21:38, 2 April 2015 (UTC)

The information you removed are cited, and is public information. If you believe he's acquitted, or otherwise have the case been dispensed with, feel free to add the information. You should read WP:CENSOR.--Cahk (talk) 21:41, 2 April 2015 (UTC)


Thank you for helping by deleting the page Inspurate. I tried to make it as neutral as possible but if you think it should be deleted than ok. — Preceding unsigned comment added by FahadUddin92 (talkcontribs) 15:55, 3 April 2015 (UTC)

Cj harvey.[edit]

Hi. I changed the reason to A7 when deleting. You can't use A11 for people or solid things. It's for things that someone has made up, like a new word (used in one small class in a school in a place no-one has heard of), or a new drinking game (Vodka and blackcurrant Pong), or a new game (bearing a strong resemblance to cricket, but played with a rounders bat). Possibly real - but absolutely non-notable - not even up and coming. We assume good faith (cough cough) and call it A11 and bin it. Now people, we have A7 for real and non-notable, prod/AfD for fictional (i.e. published or mythical characters) and non-notable, and G3 hoax for ones that aren't real and aren't documented anywhere. Hoax also applies to made up solid things, because they are pure misinformation. While six people might be using the new word 'plurget' (what's left of last night's pizza), the island of Woggletopping (in the English Channel - only appears on the third Thursday of a month containing two full moons and if the weather is foggy) is definitely not in use by anyone - and so is a hoax.

Speedy deletion U5[edit]

Hi, I noticed you have been tagging a number of user pages with CSD:U5. However, there is some reasonable leeway allowed for what people can include in the user pages, and I think you are being a little too zealous in the application of that speedy tag. For example, several of the pages you tagged were actually draft articles that had been submitted at WP:AFC and were very much not an abuse of U5, another looked like it was just the user saying a few things about himself. For some others, it really wasn't clear what the users wanted them for, so we shouldn't assume it's for nefarious reasons. Did you perhaps consider asking any of these users what they wanted those pages for before tagging them for deletion? On the whole, I'd advise only using the CSD:A5 tag for blatant abuse of user pages - especially when it comes to new users who may well be scared off, losing us potential long-term contributors. Squinge (talk) 11:15, 6 April 2015 (UTC)

I am mindful of the fact userpage can have some leeway. The one U5 I tagged, for which you reversed, appears to be an advertisement for an institution that teaches IT. Google Translate seem to indicate to me the user was promoting the institution's credentials, coupled with contact information and website. I would think that would fairly be seen as advertisement (maybe not CSD standard, but AfD at a minimum). --Cahk (talk) 18:28, 6 April 2015 (UTC)
I actually reverted several of your taggings, but I can't remember what they were now (and my contributions list is quite long because was very busy yesterday and I can't really find them now). I've recently seen several people jumping on U5 deletions almost as soon as a new editor arrives, tagging their pages for just including a bit of information about themselves or because the pages contains something not obviously understandable. I think U5 should only be used for obvious misuse over some longer period, with new editors given time to see if they really are going to start contributing. Many start here by just playing with their user pages for a while to get the hang of things, and there's nothing at all wrong with that. Slapping them with U5 deletions very soon after they have joined, without even any offer to help on their talk page and guide them into using the site, seems very bitey to me and is not likely to help retain editors who mean well. Also, when it comes to draft articles for creation, at least they're going through the right process, and unless their creation is obviously so problematic that it needs immediate deletion I think it's better to leave their submission to be reviewed and hopefully give them some useful feedback on how to improve their attempts. (And use of user space for creating draft articles for creation is surely never an abuse of U5). Anyway, those are just my thoughts, offered after seeing quite a lot of newcomers getting various deletion notices and other slapdowns handed out, when what they really need is a helping hand or to be just left alone to feel their way around. Squinge (talk) 08:03, 7 April 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the clarification on U5. I see in total 3 were declined. With respect to your comment about being bitey - I look at WP:UPNOT, particularly "Excessive unrelated content" as guide. I suppose CSD is not always necessary.--Cahk (talk) 11:02, 7 April 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, OK, fair enough - and thanks for considering my thoughts. Squinge (talk) 11:23, 7 April 2015 (UTC)

Ya M Sverdlova SOE[edit]

Hi Cahk,

Could you please explain in a bit more detail how the subject page is in line with A7 Speedy Deletion criteria? From what I understand, a wiki page about one of Russia's biggest military industrial facilities may be of interest to readers. This is only a cover page so to speak and I will be making further reviews to it in the time ahead.

Regards, — Preceding unsigned comment added by USSR Metals (talkcontribs) 10:17, 8 April 2015 (UTC)

An administrator review has determined the tag was not warranted. I tagged it as A7 because the article contained no references, nor any credible information about the organization in question.--Cahk (talk) 15:01, 8 April 2015 (UTC)

Hi Cahk, thank you for pointing that out. I will try and add a few non primary sources and expand the page to make it contain more credible information. — Preceding unsigned comment added by USSR Metals (talkcontribs) 08:59, 9 April 2015 (UTC)

Because the topic already exists in Wikipedia, you may want to edit that section of the Poster article and expand as you see fit instead of creating a new page.--Cahk (talk) 15:01, 8 April 2015 (UTC)

Moving an article from English wikipedia to French wikipedia[edit]

Hi Cahk,

I recently created an article, Fédération québécoise du canot et du kayak. I have written this article in French since it is more for francophones. I would like to move it to French Wikipedia, how can I do this? Is it best to delete it from English wikipedia and re-write it in French wikipedia?

Best, — Preceding unsigned comment added by Emiliebissonfqck (talkcontribs) 17:20, 8 April 2015 (UTC)

Your article was speedy deleted from Wikipedia because it was used for advertising/promotion purpose. You may wish to recreate it on the French Wikipedia, but beware of what is allowed. See WP:PROMOTION. --Cahk (talk) 17:27, 8 April 2015 (UTC)

Good Day Sir,

Speedy deletion declined: User:JeremiahBennett[edit]

Hello Cahk. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of User:JeremiahBennett, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: I think this is an acceptable user page wthin the guidelines. Thank you. JohnCD (talk) 17:57, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

I am surprised. The userpages I tagged this morning were all along the same line, but without the work email, personal email, phone number, etc on this user page, and they were all speedy deleted as U5.--Cahk (talk) 18:02, 2 May 2015 (UTC)
The difference I see here is that he expresses an intention to contribute to the encyclopedia, so he is not the usual U5 target, a Facebooker interested only in social-networking. U5 contains an exemption for "résumé-style pages" and what he says about himself is not irrelevant to possible contributions. I did remove the phone and email details, and explained why on his talk page. JohnCD (talk) 18:50, 2 May 2015 (UTC)
We'll just have to agree to disagree. His 'blog' is not functional, and therefore, the link to his website really is just to promote the company. Just to be clear, EVERY U5 I tagged this morning said they want to contribute, but clearly was functioning just as an advertisement/social network page.--Cahk (talk) 18:59, 2 May 2015 (UTC)
Well, we disagree, and different admins are likely to have different thresholds; take this one to WP:MFD if you like, but I see nothing there that goes against WP:UPYES. The sort of thing I think U5 is directed against is the detailed Facebook-style life-history and list of schools, relatives, hobbies etc, often from a teenage Indian and illustrated with pictures like this of the subject gazing moodily through sunglasses.
By the way, you don't need to use Talkback any more, there is an easier way: if you start a message on your talk page with {{ping|<username>}}, then provided you sign with ~~~~ in the same edit, the WP:Notification system lights up a red marker on the target's screen to tell them that they have been mentioned.

@Bernardotobias: I have already tagged the first page for deletion (and has since been deleted). As for the second article you created: First, you removed the speedy removal tag which is not allowed if you were the author of the page. Second, I tagged the page for speedy deletion because the article has not shown the reader why this person is notable. I suggest you read WP:BAND.

Absred (talk) 10:30, 7 May 2015 (UTC)

@Absred:: Hi Absred! I tagged the page as speedy delete because it had no content whatsoever, and would appear to me to be a test page. If you are interested in creating an article on that subject matter, I would suggest you to create a draft (see Wikipedia:Drafts) first.

Speedy deletion and retrieving the material (RePack)[edit]

Hi there Cahk!

An article I created (RePack) was deleted by you. Perhaps according to A7?

It's been a few weeks but is it possible to retrieve the deleted material? This way I could, possibly, edit it to meet the criteria? Any tips on making a piece about an environmentally and commercially important concept suitable are appreciated. My goal is not to promote, but to create neutral entries about Scandinavian startup companies.

Cement board[edit]

The picture you have on the cement board page is that of durock. Durock is a 47% cement product whereas hardiebacker is 90% cement and is, this, more truly representative of a cement board. If you could please change the photo it would be much appreciated. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2602:302:d114:8860:3c22:6b05:c56b:178b (talkcontribs)

Orphaned non-free image File:Absheriff.jpg[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:Absheriff.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 17:13, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

Would like some advice/direction in writing page...[edit]


I recently joined Wikipedia and am interested in contributing in a variety of ways. However, my first task is an externally motivated one.

I would like to create an article for a company, which I understand is a tricky process. I would like to be as up front and honest as possible about any conflict on interest I may have. I am currently an intern for this company (Falcon's Treehouse) and, in researching news and articles about our company, I noticed that there was no wikipedia article. Not aware of wikipedia's rules limiting company articles, I voluntarily brought this up to a superior who was thrilled at the option of getting a page on our company on Wikipedia. I tried to write something small, which was immediately deleted.

Now that I have come to understand the nature of Wikipedia's rules a bit more, I would like to request any time you may have to give me any advice on how to proceed? I want to be clear that we have every intention of complying with Wikipedia's restrictions, as well as any concerns you may have. We do NOT want a marketing platform, simply an informative page about the company's basic information. My interest in creating an article stemmed from the discovery that there are many articles written about the company's creations (we make theme parks and attractions), but none about the company, itself.

Again, I'd like to say that though this is my first intended article as a Wikipedia user, I am very interested in contributing in additional ways as well, and I'm hoping this will be a great learning experience for me to help out in the future.

Thank you for your time! Vanihba02 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Vanihba02 (talkcontribs) 15:22, 4 August 2015 (UTC)

@Vanihba02: Thank you for writing to me. One of the reasons I tagged the article was the lack of independent reporting/mention,etc on the company that was referenced(see WP:ORG). Another reason is if the article is directed as "we see/make xyz", it may be interpreted as advertisement (or at least WP:COI). As you've said, it's not easy to write an acceptable organization page unless it's somewhat established. I suggest inviting a disinterested party to comb through the article before publishing.
You can also use the draft features (see Wikipedia:Drafts) or alternatively, Wikipedia:WikiProject Articles for creation/Help desk. These can be places to start, and you will receive feedbacks as you go.--Cahk (talk) 06:22, 5 August 2015 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Thank you for your response to my inquiry. I appreciate it and will take your comments into consideration as I try to write this article. I am finding as many objective sources as possible.

My page is being deleted[edit]

Hello cahk I received a message on my talk page that said the page I created (Alexis Slifer)did not meet the requirements for why the musician/band is important. I don't understand though. What are some ways a band/musician is important. What makes them important?

‎Sin the Saint deletion[edit]

Hi Cahk,

It states that the page was speedily deleted due to an article about a band, singer, musician, or musical ensemble, which does not credibly indicate the importance or significance of the subject.

First, I would like to say the page was only up for less than 24 hours. I did not include a detailed information on biography, singing aptitude/significance with regards to Rwanda and etc, shows, label and etc. More edits were needed; I was under the assumption that Wikipedia pages were living documents, so I could put up a skeleton framework; and I can add more to it by this weekend or as I choose and others could contribute as well. Please advise.

I definitely do not think this warrants a deletion. Please revert; I hope this reaches your favorable consideration. Thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Aoj2099 (talkcontribs) 12:27, 7 August 2015 (UTC)

@Aoj2099: To clarify, I only tagged the article as non-notable musician. An administrator who reviewed my tag agreed and deleted the article. I don't have the administrative privilege to revive the page. I'd suggest you contact the administrator who deleted the article instead. I'd also suggest that you read WP:MUSICBIO before creating or reviving the article. --Cahk (talk) 18:05, 7 August 2015 (UTC)
@Cahk: How can you tag something that has not even been up for even 12 hours? Common courtesy after all the work put into it would to recommend to the user to move it to draft for further editing. You are Ridiculous and trigger happy!!!
@Aoj2099: Please direct me to a Wikipedia page that said I MUST wait 12 hours (or whatever arbitrary time) before tagging the article. The article you created was not notable, and was subsequently deleted by an administrator. I don't know why you'd think the result would be any different if the article is tagged at a later time.--Cahk (talk) 19:57, 12 August 2015 (UTC)
@Cahk: Whatever the case is you were trigger happy and you closed!!!
@Aoj2099: Say whatever you want. --Cahk (talk) 15:33, 31 August 2015 (UTC)


Hello, How are you? I am Maria, I wrote an article about Federico Minieri, I wanted to ask information about this. I have interview Federico at the Burberry fashion show of London aside Christopher bailey and Donatella Versace and have assisted live his interview for fashion magazine. I will fix any needed fixing but I do not retain that my page was a hoax as I did find it a bit offensive. I have put much time and effort into researching the facts and after much interest in this individual and requests I have chosen to write the article. Federico was notified about me wiring the article and has given me consent. I don't think it should have been deleted as it is 100% accurate and much wanted article and I would like to insists and bring this case forward. I thank you for your time in advance, and if anything else must be done I will do as soon as possible.

Kind Regards Maria John — Preceding unsigned comment added by MariaJohn1 (talkcontribs) 00:01, 9 August 2015 (UTC)

@MariaJohn1: This is not a matter of whether the article is offensive or whether consent was given. The article was deemed to be a hoax because:
a) A Google search of the name, and the same picture as the article shows the person's occupation as a voice actor.
b) The article consisted of no independent sources of this person
c) There's no mention of him at any of the company he alleged to work for
d) The information in the article is inconsistent for the person described and
e) Most importantly, the article was deleted as hoax from another account, and you recreated it under a new account for no apparent reason.--Cahk (talk) 00:11, 9 August 2015 (UTC)

You marked this page with a speedy deletion under patent nonsense. This article was not in English and does not fit the speedy deletion under patent nonsense. Forgive me if you speak Russian.

Hi Im maria , regarding the deleted Federico Page.

@Bristol City123: The birthday you entered is not the one referenced. Unless you have other citations otherwise, I'd consider your edit as vandalism.--Cahk (talk) 20:34, 14 August 2015 (UTC)


Dear Cahk:

Thank you very much for the deletion notice. As you can see, this is the first time I'm trying to create an article on wikipedia, and even though I'm trying to follow the instructions, it's harder than I thought (at least for a novice like me). My intention was to keep the article on Nuverz as a draft, instead of as a published page. The reason I'm writing on them is mainly that, as a professor I am myself, these new ways of engaging into education are to me more and more appealing, and I'm considering starting a series of posts on these new educational tools. However, your notice is right: I should develop the post way more before publishing (that's the reason why I wanted it to be a draft but, alas, I'm really clumsy when it comes to this platform).

Having said that, I already scheduled it for self-deletion. Thanks again for calling my attention on that matter! Esparzari (talk) 21:09, 14 August 2015 (UTC)

@Esparzari: Not a problem - thanks for leaving a nice message on my page. If you need help, please head over to Wikipedia:Help desk or Wikipedia:New contributors' help page.--Cahk (talk) 21:26, 14 August 2015 (UTC)

@Charles Eugene Hill (doctor: I have great difficulty trying to understand what you are trying to convey to me in your message. I am not an administrator, and cannot un-delete a page. I see that you already left message with an administrator, and thus I will defer to him/her to answer your inquiry.--Cahk (talk) 06:13, 20 August 2015 (UTC)

I have unreviewed a page you curated[edit]

Hi, I'm Gmaildamn. I wanted to let you know that I saw the page you reviewed, MOST POPULAR PHYSICIANS OF INDIA, and have un-reviewed it again. If you have any questions, please ask them on my talk page. Thank you. Gmaildamn (talk) 06:17, 20 August 2015 (UTC)

@Gmaildamn: For the record, you are not eligible to take that action. The Wikipedia:Page Curation/Help page states "only autoconfirmed users can actually review." You are a brand new user, and thus, should not be engaged in the exercise of reviewing or unreviewing. Further, when a page is tagged as CSD, it is automatically marked as reviewed. --Cahk (talk) 06:25, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
Umm..well I think that reason is not quite good or that's my fault?[[2]]?Gmaildamn (talk) 06:30, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
@Gmaildamn: The subject of the article already has an article in place. It is a duplication, and therefore, can be speedy deleted (WP:A10). I reiterate, you ARE NOT eligible to review articles as you are not an auto-confirmed user yet. I think you meant well, but you appears to not understand the rules of Wikipedia just yet.--Cahk (talk) 06:35, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
You meant that new auto-confirmed user should not be engaged in the "exercise" of reviewing or unreviewing? If that's true can I use it for tagging deletion of some tags?Gmaildamn (talk) 06:41, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
@Gmaildamn: You need to understand reviewing is not the same as editing or tagging articles. The Wikipedia:Page Curation/Help is explicit as to who should be reviewing the articles. Until you become an auto-confirmed user, I suggest you refrain from doing it. However, you can add speedy deletion tag per WP:CSD "Anyone can request speedy deletion by adding one of the speedy deletion templates." --Cahk (talk) 06:46, 20 August 2015 (UTC)

@Charles Eugene Hill (doctor: Funny. If you did your research on Wikipedia, you will note: "pages in user space belong to the wider community". If you want your own website, feel free to buy a domain, or build one with a website provider. Wikipedia is not here for you to promote yourself, or create your own autobiography. Quite contrary to your claim, your page was not vandalized. I tagged the page because it was not consistent with guidelines and rules of Wikipedia. An administrator agreed, and removed the page. Before you make an accusation, I suggest you read Wikipedia:User pages. If you simply recreate the deleted page without editing, it will be deleted again. --Cahk (talk) 22:45, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
