Welcome![edit]

Hello, Colesy99, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Unfortunately, one or more of the pages you created, such as Ashley Bryant, may not conform to some of Wikipedia's guidelines, and may not be retained.

There's a page about creating articles you may want to read called Your first article. If you are stuck, and looking for help, please come to the New contributors' help page, where experienced Wikipedians can answer any queries you have! Or, you can just type {{helpme}} on this page, followed by your question, and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions. Here are a few other good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date.

Proposed deletion of Ashley Bryant[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Ashley Bryant has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, this newly created biography of a living person will be deleted unless it has at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within ten days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. Sam 🎤 12:49, 31 July 2013 (UTC)

Adding categories[edit]

The easiest way to start adding categories is to find a similar article and copy from that. Taking your areticle on Ashley Bryant try searching for Britis Decathlete. Top of the search is Daniel Awde. Using edit source copy the appropriate ones and paste to your page. Also, at the bottom of the edit pane is a box labelled insert. Click this and change it to Wiki markup. Here you will find a blank category template which you can use with a suitable inclusion. Hope this helps.Malcolma (talk) 19:09, 1 August 2013 (UTC)

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse. Mr. Guye (talk) 20:42, 26 May 2014 (UTC)

Linking to other articles[edit]

Hi! As you have no doubt noticed I have been reviewing/housekeeping your recent article submissions. It would save a lot of time if you could be sure to put links to other articles by placing terms such as "rugby league" and different teams' names in square brackets, like this: Daniel Smith (born 20 March 1993) is a professional [[rugby league]] player for [[Wakefield Trinity Wildcats]]. - which will appear on the site as "Daniel Smith (born 20 March 1993) is a professional rugby league player for Wakefield Trinity Wildcats." Also, please, please do consider adding categories at the time of creation, again, this will save time and make reviewing your articles go faster. Mabalu (talk) 21:48, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
