Frequently asked questions
- Where can I learn more about editing Wikipedia?
- Why was the link I added removed from an article?
- Typically, links are removed because they fail the external links guideline. Although many links are deleted because they were placed by spammers, links to good sites are also removed on a regular basis. This is because Wikipedia isn't a directory service; the mere fact a site exists does not mean it warrants a link.
- Why was my article deleted?
- Pages can be deleted for many reasons; there are very specific criteria that govern the process. Please review this article for more information.
- Why was information relating to my company or organization removed?
- This is a very common question, based on a misunderstanding of Wikipedia's purpose. This project is not a directory, forum, or search engine, and as such it is not a place for you to post advertisements about your company or your product.
- Why were my spelling changes reverted?
- Wikipedia's Manual of Style recommends the use of regional varieties of English, based on the topic and the article's contribution history. Please avoid changing spellings unless they differ from the appropriate version. Most spell checking software can be configured to use British and American English; some extend this to include other varieties such as Canadian or Australian English.

New Mobility Agenda
Greetings: Back in 2011, you informed me that my entry for New Mobility Agenda was not up to scratch and tossed out my proposed entry.
It seemed that I was not able to convince you or the other editors at the time of the legitimacy of this increasingly widely used phrase in transport, city planning and environment circles, so New Mobility Agenda was scratched from Wikipedia. At the time, I did not make the necessary effort to document its legitimacy in the world-wide discussions of climate modification, environmental degradation, poor decisions when it came to sustainable transport in cities, etc., and the need for, precisely, "new mobility" approaches.
I also understand that even though this phrase evolved out of my own international work in the mid-eighties – like “Car Free Days” – it is important that its broad acceptance be justified. I will be pleased to take a stab at that now.
Half a decade has now passed and if you Google "New Mobility Agenda" today, you will see it calls up more than ten thousand references. Of the ones that are documented roughly half of which are entirely independent of my work or involvement in any form. (By that I mean that the phrase New Mobility Agenda is increasingly broadly used not only in places associated with my own work and recommendations to governments, centers of research and policy, and civil society for sustainable transport, sustainable cites and sustainable lives.
So now please, how can I get the Wikipedia entry on New Mobility Agenda back on line. It’s a small thing but there are no big solutions to our problems of unsustainability and climate modification. Just a huge number of many mainly small things. That is what we and thousands of others around the world working on these challenges call the New Mobility Agenda.
Thanks for advising me so that we can get this phrase back where it belongs. In Wikipedia.
PS. I know how to follow instructions.
